Statement from Laurie Cumbo Calling Not Guilty Verdict in the Zimmerman Trial Outrageous

Calling Not Guilty Verdict in the Zimmerman Trial Outrageous

“Last night’s verdict in the George Zimmerman trial is just another blatant example of how our justice system continues to fail us,” Laurie Cumbo, 35th District City Council Candidate said. “My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin and Trayvon Martin’s friends and extended family. In order to prevent another senseless death like Trayvon’s we need to end racial profiling in our country once and for all. Our justice system failed us last night, and we need to examine how we can ensure it never fails us again. We must end our stop and frisk policy here in New York City, we must re think the use of ‘Stand Your Ground’ and as ‘One Brooklyn’ we must work together to better protect our neighborhoods from fatal gun violence. Last night’s verdict allows George Zimmerman to go free for the murder of an innocent child, we must never let this happen again.”
