Community, Civil Rights Leaders Call for Justice in Trayvon Martin Shooting
At the Allen Chapel AME Church in Sanford, civil rights organizations joined the chorus in calling for a thorough investigation of Martin’s death.Central Florida Urban League’s (CFUL) president and chief executive officer Allie L. Braswell, Jr., was among those calling for immediate action leading to justice for the teen.“We fully support the community’s cry in Sanford for the release of the 9-1-1 transcripts, and for a thorough investigation into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin,” Braswell said.Added Braswell, “This is an unfortunate and especially tragic incident given that a youth’s life was lost. A private citizen taking law enforcement into his own hands is not and cannot be condoned. Our society cannot allow this return to vigilantism to have any inference of support from our elected or law enforcement officials.” . . . .To Read More Go To-->http://westorlandonews.com/2012/03/14/community-civil-rights-leaders-call-for-justice-in-trayvon-martin-shooting/
