I covered every single minute of George Zimmerman’s trial when I worked for my former employer.
You know what I learned watching that trial day in, and day out?
I learned that Florida’s “stand your ground” laws had nothing at all to do with Zimmerman’s defense, which was predicated on a classic case of self defense. While Zimmerman didn’t have a duty to retreat under Stand Your Ground, the relevant fact is that he never had the option to retreat because of the nature of the attack.
Let’s make no mistake: drug-abusing, illegal-gun dealing Trayvon Martin was attempting to murder George Zimmerman with his bare hands when Zimmerman—who had been screaming for help from neighbors who refused to get involved—finally drew his gun and fired a single shot to defend his life.
As hidden files and images on his own phone revealed during parts of the trial that the jury wasn’t allowed to see, the real Trayvon Martin was a violent, drug-abusing thug who appeared to get off on hurting people, and was apparently happy to traffic in illicitly-acquired and possibly stolen guns.
An image recovered from Trayvon Martin’s phone, showing one of several handguns he was apparently attempting to sell.
That isn’t keeping activist playwright Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj from concocting a pathetic bit of propaganda that whitewashes this young serial criminal’s path to a well-earned grave.
Maharaj didn’t write a play about Trayvon Martin. He wrote a bizarre and wistful bit of abject fantasy about a semi-literate violent criminal who was shot because he ambushed a man he perceived to be softer and weaker than he was, and he apparently tried to beat that man to death.
You don’t want kids in your neighborhood to end up in a cooler at your local morgue, Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj?
True something new. Write an honest play which attacks and dismantles the well-documented thug culture that teaches children it is okay to rob, and steal, abuse and deal deal drugs, join gangs, and treat other people as prey to be exploited. Stop attempting to excuse the behavior of the Trayvon Martins and Michael Browns of this world.
You had a real chance to maybe change some minds and hearts and maybe even save lives, Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj.
You pissed it away justifying the indefensible, whitewashing a black heart.
