The Trayvon Martin case continues to stir up raw emotion as students at the Ohio State University stumbled upon vandalism at the Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center Thursday morning.
STORY: George Zimmerman To Turn Himself In
Spray painted on the side of the building were three simple words loaded with a malicious meaning: “Long Live Zimmerman.”
The vandalism references George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch leader who killed Trayvon Martin on February 26th inside a Sanford, FL gated community.
Students immediately took to social media to express their anger, tweeting the university’s president and circulating the photo.
President Gordon Gee tweeted back stating:
“Just learned of vandalism at our Hale Center. Deplorable act of intolerance– not who we are at Ohio State. Our Police are investigating.”
The white spray paint has since been removed by a Student Life employee, but there are no suspects in the case.
Larry Williamson, director of the Hale Center, says they are working with University Police to find out who was responsible for the vandalism and to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
“We want to be sure that these types of things don’t happen here at the Ohio State University.
This is not the kind of climate that Ohio State is trying to have here at this university. The university prides itself in diversity and you have things like that that takes a step back.
We’re dealing with the situation with heightened security. We’re going try to make sure that we do everything possible that these types of things don’t happen.”
OSU students will meet at the Hale Center Thursday night to discuss the vandalism at their weekly Black Student Association meeting.
On February 26th, 17-year-old Trayvon was shot and killed by neighborhood watchman, 28-year-old George Zimmerman. Trayvon was returning from a local 7-Eleven after buying a bag of Skittles and iced tea.
He was then spotted by Zimmerman while returning to his father’s girlfriend’s home inside their gated community. Zimmerman called 911, explaining that Trayvon, who was wearing a hoodie at the time, a pair of blue jeans, and red/white sneakers, looked suspicious.
Zimmerman pursued Trayvon even after he was told not to by the 911 dispatcher.
When Zimmerman approached Trayvon, the two got into a scuffle, resulting in Trayvon taking a bullet to the chest at point blank range.
Zimmerman claimed that he shot Trayvon on grounds of self-defense, although Trayvon was unarmed.
Since the murder of Trayvon, the entire nation has expressed outrage.
George Zimmerman has not been arrested yet as more evidence comes forward proving that his claims of self-defense were false.
