While there has been rumors that President Obama has filed federal charges again Trayvon Martin killer, George Zimmerman, for the first he is speaking out about the Not Guilty verdict.
President Obama calls the case a “tragedy”.
“I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher,” he said. “But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son.”
