I spoke with Natalie Jackson, one of the attorneys for Trayvon Martin’s family today, and she didn’t mince words in her response to state attorney Norman Wolfinger, who called the questions the lawyers are asking the Department of Justice to look into, “outright lies.”
Natalie said, in short, the family deserves answers. Their son is dead, and they got no answers, no communication, from Wolfinger when he had the case. “He has no right to ignore this family,” Natalie told me. Full story here.
Also on the site, you can read an open letter written to the family by the widow of Sean Bell, who was shot to death by New York City police on the night before their wedding.
Meanwhile, if you didn’t catch my interview with Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mom, you can find it here.
And complete coverage of the Trayvon Martin case, including a brief, sad history of black Sanford residents’ relationship with police, can be found here.
