Basically an African American teenage boy was shot dead, for looking "suspicious". The boy was simply walking home in the rain, unarmed and wearing a hoodie. The thing that was assumed to be a gun was a can of Arizona and skittles.
Now the man who murdered him is walking free and the nation is stunned. Its a repeat of the famous Emmett Till case that happened in the 1950s. Remind you (for foreigners) the U.S was segregated at the time and African American were treated inhumanly and were denied of basic rights.
It's crazy how short life can be. To die at 17. You haven't even lived yet.
When the news broke out, everyone wanted to show their support and rally against racial profiling.
Here are some pics I gather that I thought was aspiring.
