Laywer for Trayvon Martin’s Family Speaks Out on Jury Selection and Equal Justice
Benjamin Crump – the family lawyer for the Trayvon Martin family – has spoken out on the jury selection process for the the George Zimmerman trial.
In an appearance on Politics Nation with Al Sharpton, Sharpton asked for Crump’s (and te Martin family’s) reaction to the recent news that the jury for the George Zimmerman will be comprised of 5 white women and 1 Hispanic woman.
Well, you know, we’ve said all along this case is about equal justice. Equal justice under the law is not a Black value, it’s not a White value, it’s an American value. And with the make-up of this jury, five White women and one Hispanic, it’s gonna be the question can every American get equal justice no matter who sits on your jury. And so, they’re just praying that they can get justice for their child.
Thoughts on the jurors selected for the George Zimmerman trial?
Will the Martin family get justice for their son?
