Trayvon Martin: The Latest Victim

It is impossible to get away from the a discussion of race when discussing Trayvon Martin's death and the circumstances surrounding him being shot by George Zimmerman.

I have been cautious to respond hastily to the 'not guilty' verdict recently awarded to Zimmerman. This is a very polarizing case and I wanted to think deeply before actually deciding what I want to say in this moment.

Offend and Be Offended

I’m  a pretty normal person in this regard; I like it when people like me, I don’t like it when people don’t like me.

This pretty normal fact about me however runs directly counter to a commitment that I have made to attempt to tell the truth as I see it. This commitment is particular to those general societal or cultural trends that run directly counter to principles of love, mercy and justice.

Justice Not Jail

 It would take a lot for me to believe that someone belongs in prison; even more if that person is a youth. Yet, Canada has had a history of high youth incarceration rates, even higher than in the United States. All the experts know that prison will not rehabilitate and is no place for a young person. That is why we continually rework the way we deal with young offenders in Canada, the most recent being the Youth Criminal Justice Act which desires to keep youth out of prison and in good community programs.
