Trayvon Martin Related Vandalism in Franklin

  • Print

This story out of Franklin bothers me.

Everyone is familiar with the Trayvon martin related case out of Florida. Martin was an unarmed teenager who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch Captain.

Now it ends up that Trayvon Martin related vandalism has occurred in Franklin.

According to police reports, on April 3rd, residents in one neighborhood reported that someone had taped a black and white photo of Trayvon Martin with the word "Revenge" in red to several mailboxes.

In a different neighborhood a resident reported two stickers were placed on his mailbox. One of the stickers had a picture of Trayvon Martin with the word "Revenge" written in red. The other sticker was a fist that said "Kill Whitey."

I spoke to police this afternoon.  They tell me they believe the acts were random and no one was every in any real danger. Although, they don't know for sure, because no one has been arrested.

What a stupid thing for someone to do. What the hell is the matter with some people?!
