Today .... Saturday's... proposed 11 a.m. march from Crooms Academy of Information Technology to the Sanford Police Department headquarters has been organized by Al Sharpton's National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Coordinators said people will be bused in from other states to participate.

The civil rights activist and syndicated television show host Rev Al Sharpton said he will elaborate on his plan to bring protest to the next level at the event.

"I will speak about how the National Action Network will move to the next level if Zimmerman isn't arrested," Sharpton said. He added that it was the Martin family and lawyers who first asked him to get involved and nationalize this story.

President Obama said earlier in the week if he had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin .......... a young boy who seems to be have shot and killed in Florida by George Zimmerman who it seems incredibly has been charged with no crime ........ Zimmerman has not even been arrested during the police response .............. it seems to many outraged people that it might be the case that Trayvon was shot because of the color of his skin and the police have not acted to ensure justice is done for the same reason.

Such a terrible sad story for America it feels reminiscent of the kind of thing that would happen in the Southern States in America's grim past of vile segregation and digusting prejudice ............ and such a total utter overwhelming tragedy for the Martin family.
