Cogito Media Group Announces Plan to Publish "The Real Trayvon Martin Story: Stand Your Ground vs. Equal Justice" -- One of the Most Explosive Cases of the Century(May 03, 2012)
DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 05/03/12 -- The book titled "The Real Trayvon Martin Story: Stand Your Ground vs. Equal Justice," to be published by Cogito Media Group (PINKSHEETS: KRMC), will contain all the details of the trial of George Zimmerman that has sparked a national outcry and debate over whether the shooting was warranted. It will also cover the story behind the story, which is the justified use of deadly force by private citizens. 21 states have already passed a "Stand Your Ground" law, the self-defense claim which gives people wide latitude to use deadly force to protect not only one's life, but property and neighbors. It could go as far as permitting a preemptive strike against an apprehended attack, rather than retreating at the first signs of a potential fight.
Is America going back to Frontier Justice? Will vigilantes be entitled to shoot at people they deem to represent a threat? These questions are particularly disturbing in the case at hand: Zimmerman, a 200 pound former altar boy and son of a magistrate judge versus, an unarmed black teenager wearing a hoodie walking through a gated neighborhood in Florida.
The racial overtones of equal justice for young black people will be covered along with the fears it has produced among all black people living in one of the 21 states that have passed the Stand Your Ground Law.
"This book could easily surpass the revenue potential of our Michael Jackson book which brought in over one million dollars," said Pierre Turgeon, Cogito's President.
