Statement from Borough President Diaz
Re: George Zimmerman Verdict
"The verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman is shocking. What we have seen in Florida is an apparent miscarriage of justice, and I offer my sympathies to the family of Trayvon Martin in their hour of need. I hope that the federal government will consider civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, so that his family may have some measure of justice in the loss of their son," said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
