Skip to comments.Stand Up for Trayvon Martin By Amending 'Stand Your Ground' (Crump wants 'Trayvon Voters')
Posted on 08/17/2013 3:40:32 PM PDT by kristinn
As I travel the country, many people tell me they wish they had been on the jury in the criminal trial of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. I tell them that although they did not have a vote in those proceedings, they do have a vote in establishing Trayvons legacy.
This vote, your vote, will be historic. It starts when you sign the Change.org petition by Trayvons family to amend stand-your-ground laws in 21 of the 31 states where they are on the books. It continues when you cast your vote in the 2014 midterm elections and each election cycle beyond until we make history by passing a Trayvon Martin amendment to the stand-your-ground laws in every state that has them. These actions will make you part of new voting bloc: The Trayvon Martin voter.
Throughout history, positive change has come from tragedy. Society has learned that with time and through action, protests and national movements, change is possible. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 began in large part because of the brutal murder of another unarmed black teenager, Emmett Till, in Money, Miss., in 1955. It took nearly a decade before this tragedy resulted in the passage of the historic civil rights legislation. Emmetts mother, Mamie Till Mobley, eventually got to see something positive emerge from something very painful: an acknowledgment that her sons death was not in vain.
The 1963 murder of Medgar Evers, another unarmed African American, led to positive change. During his life as an activist, Evers organized voter registration campaigns, demonstrations and boycotts to end Jim Crow laws in Jackson, Miss. His death was an influence for the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Crump should be disbarred.
If the 'rats want to run for office on a platform of changing state laws to allow wannabe gangsters to assault passersby, I'd think that's an excellent idea, and I'd strongly encourage it! (If they want to hold their collective breath until they turn blue, that's a good idea, too, and likely to be just as effective.)
Stand up for George Zimmerman.
Like thier philosophical brethren in the Middle East , the DNC wages sectarian violence for power.
Zimm for Senate!
We are all George Zimmerman.
Letting lawyers make laws is like letting doctors make diseases.
Get this guy out of politics, along with all the other lawyers. Starting with Zero.
Zimmerman used the only means he had to defend himself during the brutal attack and perhaps save his life.
What if he was only able to find a rock instead and hit Tratvon upside the head with it?
He used what was available at the time.
lawyer crafted stand your ground laws.
protect tort reform and scum like crum go away.
ANYONE can go to law school now. we have that many.
Hey...Mr. Crump...I got some “ground” you can stand right heah, pal. ;-)
Or we could make it illegal to assault neighborhood watch volunteers.
He got SHOT IN THE FACE by this street monkey:
for being a "white hispanic" while in a stroller, cause hiz momma couldn't "PAY UP."
You scumbag, bet you don't even know the little boy or the case.
Crump the crook. Let me tell you what, punk. I don’t care about the race of ANYONE...if they’re bashing my head into a sidewalk, they’ll get shot.
End of story, race baiter.
crump’s business income (see ambulance chasing) was CRUSHED by tort reform in stand your ground.
Civil immunity is poison to his wallet.
he only cares about money.
why has no person reported him to the bar?
