Picture at Florida State Capitol depicts man looking like George Zimmerman shooting a person wearing a hoodie in the back, how Obama's words have an impact
Of course, the Obama administration has played this up this case in other ways. As CBS notes:
A museum director at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., said she would be interested in acquiring a symbolic and recent piece of American history.
Trayvon Martin's hoodie - the sweatshirt he was wearing the night he was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla. - "became the symbolic way to talk [about] the Trayvon Martin case," Lonnie Bunch, the director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, told The Washington Post.
As legal proceedings have come to an end, the hoodie is likely back in the hands of the Sanford Police Department and Trayvon Martin's family will be given a chance to claim it. . . .
