Protesters have settled in to the Florida Governor’s office, using the Zimmerman case as a rally cry against ‘stand your ground’ laws, even though that law had nothing to do with the case.
Adora Obi Nweze, president of the Florida State Conference NAACP, in
her letter contended that families don’t know what to tell to children
on how to remain safe.

tell my child in order to keep them safe and alive in Florida?” she
Do you want to know what to tell your kids to avoid Trayvon Martin’s fate?
Don’t get suspended from school for drugs, vandalism, and possession of stolen property.
Don’t get involved in street fighting.
Don’t be racist. It is wrong to refer to people as “crackas.”
most importantly: Keep your hands to yourself, unless you are being
attacked. Don’t commit felony battery. The soft target you thought you
were going to beat down may be armed.
