Charges laid in Trayvon Martin case


Charges laid in Trayvon Martin case

After over a month of waiting and wondering Florida neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman was formally charged with the murder of teenager Trayvon Martin. What will happen now? The bigger issue is the law and Zimmerman. With over 6 weeks of passing and constant media involvement will justice actually be served?

The Prayer Palace and the Melnichuks were the subject of a recent Sunday Star investigation that found the church’s three pastors living in multi-million-dollar mansions and enjoying a lavish Florida hideaway while encouraging the largely poor congregation to tithe a percentage of their income.
