Tonight on The Gist of Freedom Join host, Roy Paul and guest, former prosecutor Dwayne Nash as they discuss Holder's decision not to charge Zimmerman.
The Justice Department announced Tuesday that George Zimmerman will not face federal criminal civil rights charges for shooting and killing teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.
Zimmerman fatally shot Martin while the unarmed African American 17-year-old was walking in Sanford, Fla. The shooting became a national flashpoint, sparking a discussion of race relations that continues to reverberate since the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and other incidents across the country.
“The death of Trayvon Martin was a devastating tragedy,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement. “It shook an entire community, drew the attention of millions across the nation, and sparked a painful but necessary dialogue throughout the country.”
As a result of the announcement Tuesday, the federal investigation into the shooting has been closed.

If one can afford it, What's wrong with paying for faster internet? Does everything in America have to be the same for everyone? If so, why would anyone want to excel at anything? We would all be guaranteed to have the same thing as everyone else! So why work hard? We can all chill and be mediocre!!! Succeed or fail!!! I wanna be free!!! Some people want you to look and dress like you want but want you to think in a box??? Check out 'Groovin'' by Sax Therapist Traysee J Leonard
