The Defense Rests


The Kitchen Cabinet

THE DEFENSE RESTS in the Trayvon Martin case…placing a heavy chunk of cement on the floor of the courtroom and telling the jury that Trayvon Martin was not a teenager with nothing but SKITTLES in his pocket.

Why is Joshua Chellew less important than Trayvon Martin?

Who’s Joshua Chellew? The fact that you don’t know his name is the whole point. But that’s not your fault…

…A horrible, senseless murder. Why hasn’t it received wider attention?…
