("This verdict has caused families to ask the question - 'What should I tell my child in order to keep them safe and alive in Florida?" she wrote Scott. "We are the fourth largest state in the union with one of the nation's most diverse populations. This is not the kind of Florida our children deserve.")
If you teach your children, respect for others, not to be part of groups who commit crimes, look and dress respectable, not to look like those people who are known to be gang members etc. then most likely your children will not be caught up in a situation that Trayvon was. If mommy and/or daddy do not do their job of parenting, then things like this, too many times, will be the outcome.
I am not sure if Trayvon was part of any of these groups but, the pictures the media do and did not show are the ones with the tattoos, gold teeth, jail house pants etc. Do your "little" children come home dressed like that? If so, do something about it instead of blaming someone else for what happens to them.
What has happened to this society that kids want to emulate the dregs of our society and the parents don't have the power to do anything about it?
Governor, the rest of us have to protect ourselves and the "stand your ground" must be kept or we all lose out in the end.
