Beyonce halts a concert for a brief moment of silence and other celebs all over the globe took to their social media outlets to vocalize their dismay in the justice system and the travesty of justice that resulted in an acquittal in the murder trial of the man accused of gunning down an innocent Skittles and Arizona tea carrying 17 year old named Trayvon Benjamin Martin. The accused, George Zimmerman was released upon the public after an acquittal was rendered by a jury of six women July 13, 2013.

Miley Cyrus tweeted twice. "No justice. No peace," she wrote, followed by: "The world is a scary place."
 I have also read the reactions of those who agree with the verdict. Comments like "Traygone" lived a "thug-life and died like a thug" or comments in reference to his prior"thuggish" activities or shenanigans, suspensions from school and marijuana usage and the indifference to Trayvon Benjamin Martin being referred to as an "innocent teen" the boy was unarmed, stalked on a dark, rainy night by a grown-ass man that was told to fallback. In that regard he was an innocent boy in a fight or flight ssituation who attempted to save his own life by any means necessary.
