Did Obama Speak Justice For Trayvon Martin??

Soo in the midst of the hostile up roar pertaining to the non-guilty verdict of George Zimmerman, President Obama chose to release a statement. For some the statement was empty, lacking a direct stance toward Justice. Others felt his statement was sufficient for his position, and it was timely to ensure a peace state throughout the country.

We we wanna know what do you think?? It appears that almost every class of citizen has an opinion on  the verdict and our justice system. Now we throw the President's call for peace and stricter gun laws into the mix...Didn't George Zimmerman have the right to bear arms? If so, why is strict gun laws being highlighted in his statement??

Here is the President's statement...Please Share with us if you agree or not

"The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we're doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we're doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that's a job for all of us. That's the way to honor Trayvon Martin."

  1. Obama is using Diversion,,, more senseless killing will happen and the government will push for stricter gun laws again until maybe no one will be strapped

  2. In my opinion President Obama didn't speak justice for trayvon which would have been him saying that we failed this young man and his family and let's right our wrongs. Instead in my opinion he is kinda saying yeah it was tragic but what's done is done, lets move on and try not to let it happen again, but nothing is in place to prevent things like this in the future. Laws can't protect those they weren't made to for.

  3. I think Obama played it safe with the speech..we cant look to the preisdent for answer becaue this was a black child that was murdered...There are white people that feel Obama shouldnt get invole with it becaus there are other problems for him to worry about...it can go both ways... I think its crazy that that ass hole beat the case...where there is cleary hear the cops saying dont follow the kid...whats else do you need...but we need to let this event open our eyes and not make us act foolish...Black people are not going to get anywhere roiting and acting like asshole..if we want to result, we should use are minds to beat the system not our guns or hands..thats what the white man want so he can lock our asses up!!
