Treyvan Martin murdered

Thank you for producing “Rest in Power”. Zimmerman got away with murdering Treyvan Martin. It brought all my anger and grief back to us. We attended the press conference at City Hall in Sanford. How could the police let Zimmerman go home that night??! How could Jeb Bush sign “ stand you ground”?! Treyvon’s screams on the 911 tapes tear my heart out. Rest in Power is a wonderful documentary. Treyvan’s friend, who was on the phone with him when Zimmerman attacked him was disgracefully humiliated by the prosecutor. We believed every word she said. I watched the whole trial and could not believe that the jury found Zimmerman not guilty.
