The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr.
United States Attorney General
Department of Justice

Dear Mr. Attorney General Holder,
We are concerned citizens and are writing to appeal to you and the Department of Justice to further investigate the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.
We appreciate your initial investigation into the Sanford Police Department, after the murder of Trayvon Martin.
The “not guilty verdict rendered by the jury in the George Zimmerman murder trial is not acceptable to us, our family, or our friends. We feel and think the verdict has given license to George Zimmerman and others like him to stalk, shoot, and murder our Black sons, brothers, and fathers, without legal justification.
Given the blatant disregard for the truth, questions regarding the evidence in the murder of Trayvon Martin, and the evidence presented during the trial, we feel that George Zimmerman is a menace to society, and as long as he is free, we and our family do not feel safe from the threats of these unwarranted acts of racial profiling and attacks.
George Zimmerman has a pattern of bullying and violence and he always seems to get out of his criminal actions because he is a master manipulator. As long as he is allowed to roam the streets none of our children are safe. Our children have the right to walk down the street without being viewed as suspicious because of their skin color.
George Zimmerman bullied a co-worker at CarMax relentlessly and then conned officials like he was only kidding around. His attack on law enforcement officers and his disregard of the NEN warning shows he has no regard for the law. Zimmerman’s own mother has felt the cruelness of his behavior because he turned off her electricity.
His behavior escalated to murdering an innocent child after he threw a woman across the room in a fit of rage and later kicked a defenseless dog in the stomach. We shouldn’t have to wait until another innocent child dies based on his ignorant assumptions and fits of rage.
We are asking that you fully investigate the Sanford Police Department and their handling of the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. We also ask that you review and evaluate the Stand Your Ground laws in the state of Florida, as these laws clearly have no beneficial value for its black citizens. We look forward to your prompt response.
