News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Dec. 20, 2013: Jamaican reggae crooner Sanchez is bringing back the debate over the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in song.
Sanchez has released ‘Yes We Wanna Know,’ which asks: “’Where is the justice for Trayvon?”
Martin, a 17-year old African American from Miami Gardens, Florida who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, in Sanford Florida.
Zimmerman was not charged at the time of the shooting by Sanford Police, who said that there was no evidence to refute his claim of self defense and that Florida’s stand your ground law prohibited law-enforcement officials from arresting or charging him.
Zimmerman was eventually charged in Martin’s death but a jury acquitted him of second degree murder and of manslaughter charges in July 2013.
Sanchez sends a stern message to Zimmerman stating: “Even though you run from man, you never get away from the father and even though you took your stand, yes you will feel the wrath of my father’s hands, Yes you can from man but you can’t run from the father.”
‘The brutal killing of Trayvon, and the injustice just made me upset and only way I know how to voice my opinion and anger is through music. George Zimmerman will not get away and did not get away, he shall feel the wrath of my Father’s hands,” added the singer.
The song comes as Zimmerman’s painting of the American flag with the pledge of allegiance surpassed a bid of $100,000 on Ebay.
