The President called this case a tragedy and said, “I can only imagine what these parents are going through, and when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids”. His message was aimed at Trayvon’s parents saying, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon. I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans take this with the seriousness that it deserves, and we’re going to get to the bottom of what happened.”
He continued his message by saying that “parent’s inAmericashould be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and everybody pulls together, federal state and local, to figure out exactly how this tragedy happened”
He ended his message by saying, “What happened to Trayvon Martin is a tragedy. There needs to be a thorough investigation that reassures the public that justice is carried out with impartiality and integrity.”
