Zimmerman has been charged Second Degree Murder

Oh Happy Day, Zimmerman has been Charged with Second Degree Murder for the death of Trayvon Martin.  Today at 6pm Prosecutor Angela Corey announced that Zimmerman would be charged with second degree murder.  He is to appear in front of a magistrate within 24hours where
"If convicted of Second Degree Murder, a judge is required to impose a minimum prison sentence of 16¾ years in prison and can impose any additional combination of the following penalties:
Just before the announcement the family of Trayvon Martin released a statement saying "charges against Zimmerman would start the healing process, but we won't stop fighting until he's convicted."

I appreciate everything that everyone has done around the country to bring notice and awareness that prejudice is still in the air.  I appreciate how our youth have gone forward and represented throughout the social networks by putting your hoods up.  And I appreciate the media for keeping us up to date with the latest information within this case.  I would appreciate even more if this legislation of "Stand Your Ground" will be more defined and removed until such so that we do not have any further senseless killings before every "Zimmerman" begins to plead it. I thank you all for continuing to read my blog, more to come the fight isn't over yet...
