Local motorcycle clubs ride Easter Sunday in support of Trayvon Martin

Published: Fri, April 6, 2012 @ 5:11 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Dozens of motorcyclist and motorcycle clubs from Youngstown will join in a national ride of support honoring the memory of a 17-year-old Florida boy gunned down in February.

Trayvon Martin was shot Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., by George Zimmerman, member of a block watch, who says he was assaulted by the teen and shot in self-defense. The shooting has touched off protests around the country from many who believe the teen was killed with no accountability from Zimmerman.

Bikers from various cities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Delaware, South Carolina, North Carolina, New York and California will don hoodies Easter Sunday and ride in support of justice for Trayvon Martin.

Bikers from the Youngstown-Warren area will be meeting at the Jokers Wrath Motorcycle Club at Market Street and Princeton Avenue on the South Side at 10 a.m. Sunday.

Participants will leave from the club at about 11 a.m. to embark on a two-hour ride in support of the cause.

There is no fee to participate, and organizers say anyone with a motorcycle is welcome to join.

Why not a ride for the "Memory of the victims in the Youngstown area that died" or a "Stop to end violence in the Youngstown area". Just saying.

I think it is obvious that this story has lost the attention it had because of all the lies spread by NBC and the Martin camp. Martin attacked Zimmerman not the other way around. Zimmerman was treated at the scene by emergency people and was treated by a doctor the next day. It is in the original police report. This is why no charges have been filed.

You really need to quit listening to the Media and all the two bit internet sites and bias talk shows and news shows and there little feeble attempts at being judge, jury and prospectors. Wait until the experts finish they inquiry and go from there. Your condemning a White Hispanic human being without knowing all the facts only what the mass media and Sharpton and James puts in your head. Just saying.

I was checking out the Orlando TV web sites out and saw that Kafantaris has the same exact post on there. I think he is friends with Al, Jessie and the rest of the crew.

Where is the ride for Zimmerman? He was nearly killed, but was able to defend himself. There is a bounty on his head, even though he has not been found guilty, nor even charged. Just the facts.

Oh how racial!


George Zimmerman, the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin, had once protested the unfair treatment of a homeless black man by the local police, his father says.

Robert Zimmerman told Sean Hannity of Fox News on Wednesday night that his son handed out flyers at black Sanford churches in December 2010, outraged that a police lieutenant's son was not arrested on the spot after being caught on tape sucker-punching Sherman Ware.

Ware was standing on the sidewalk when the cop’s son, Justin Collison, came out of a Sanford bar and punched him in the back of the head. The incident was caught on tape by an observer with a cell phone, but Collison was not immediately arrested, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Once the video aired on local news stations, George Zimmerman and others demanded that Collison be arrested and Sanford Police Chief Brian Tooley be fired, according to the Sentinel.

Then one day after George Zimmerman went to black churches to urge action, Collison was arrested and Tooley was booted. Collison eventually was sentenced to one year of probation.

In another twist, according to the Sentinel, the sister of Sherman Ware, the man Collison attacked, took part in a Trayvon rally on March 19 at which protesters called for Zimmerman's arrest.

The black community should show just as much outrage,for black on black crime.Then this will solve a great deal of the problems in their neighbor hoods.

I will let the justice system take its course,I don't think we have been given all of the facts,only what the media pushes.

If Zimmerman is guilty,then he should pay the price and go to prison for murder.
