Commissioner Jean Monestime's Statement on the Verdict in the George Zimmerman Trial


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- “The jury’s verdict in the murder trial of George Zimmerman is extremely disappointing.  As a father of two boys, this case was personal.  My prayers continue to be with Trayvon’s mother Sabrina Fulton, his father Tracy Martin and Trayvon’s entire family.  They have endured the unthinkable – the loss of a child and loved one.  We should honor the life of Trayvon Benjamin Martin with a peaceful, non-violent response to the verdict.”
