Rep. Congresswoman Frederica Wilson

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) criticizes the way the investigation into Trayvon Martin’s death has been handled and speculates as to a “code of silence” that might influence how the police have treated George Zimmerman. Wilson also discusses what was accomplished by today’s Capitol Hill hearing. “We were talking about hate crimes and how prevalent they are in the United States and talking about racial profiling and what we need to do as a Congress to prevent something like this from ever happening again,” says Wilson. She has gone as as stating that “George Zimmerman should be arrested for his own safety” and while her statements sounds harsh they have been echoed by many around the world. Others believe that because Zimmerman’s father was a former Magistrate Judge that he was given preferential treatment on the crime scene by the responding police officer. Why didn’t the police not even rope off the area as a crime scene? These are just some of the questions people want to know about.
