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? No matter what you think, Mr. Zimmerman still is owed a fair trial, even though he offered none to Trayvon. He admitted to shooting and killing Trayvon, but will he use an outdated law as his defence?

The Afghan Story — Nothing good will come of this


16 people were left dead after an American soldier went on a house-to-house on a shooting rampage in two villages. We already were on shaking ground in Afghanistan, however I believe that this may cause an earthquake. It’s unfortunate because in Western countries, if something like this happened, we would have sought justice through our judicial system. The Taliban is already calling American’s “savages”. It makes no sense, since they will kill all sorts of innocent people, but its all propaganda. Obviously something cracked in this solider and I think those in power need to find out, as soon as possible, why he did what he did. This incident will place a large amount of people in harm’s way. With an election year coming, I am sure that many will try to find a way to capitalize on this situation. Karzai has already said “this is unforgivable”, in a country where punishment would be met with a death sentence. The Taliban will for sure use it to rally the Afghan people against America and their western allies. I can only hope that reason will prevail, otherwise this story is going to get a lot more complicated.

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – A 57-year-old man from Mississauga, Ont., has been charged with murder after his 16-year-old daughter died overnight.
