It is difficult to understand why a 17-year-old was shot and killed three weeks ago and no one has been charged.
It is my hope the parents of Trayvon Martin receive some answers about what happened to their son. The U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have launched investigations, according to The Miami Herald.
George Zimmerman, 28 and a neighborhood watch volunteer, called 911 and reported a suspicious teen. I listened to the call and it sounds like Trayvon may have gotten confused. Zimmerman said the young man was staring at houses. I think he was trying to figure out where he had been. Way too many of the homes in Florida look alike.
One of the stories I read said Trayvon was visiting the neighborhood where his father lived. He may have gotten turned around, saw a man talking on his cell phone in a car, and attempted to ask for directions. The only problem was the man thought the teen was trouble and started chasing him. How very sad.
