Former Gov. Sports Hoodie In Support Of Florida Teen Shot By Neighborhood Watch Captian

DETROIT (CBS/AP) – Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm is sporting a hoodie in a new photo on her Facebook site, in support of the unarmed Florida teen shot to death by a neighborhood watch captain.

Granholm, now the host of Current TV’s political show “The War Room,” writes “The hoodie is a way of expressing support for the Martin family, and for all the sons of African American families who bear the heavy burden of other people’s negative assumptions.”

Seventeen year-old Trayvon Martin was wearing a hoodie when he was killed February 26 in Sanford, Florida. The shooter claims it was in self-defense.

No charges have been filed.

Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee announced Thursday that he will “temporarily step down” from his job due to the fallout from the Trayvon Martin case.

    And kids, this is what a Harvard degree will do for you…. this Harvard genius failed to solve any problem In Michigan as part of McNamara’s Band. But like all Harvard Genius she knows how to get press as a hoodie ornament

    Probably from The Grand Hotel or another exotic place. Jenny is to governing what matt millen was to running a football team. So glad both are done.

    one black killed by a white, and the world goes crazy-thousands of white, (and blacks) killed, raped, beaten, by black males, and no one says a thing-what a bunch of losers.

    Wasn’t there a gas station attendent lured out of his glass enclosed area by a couple of dark-skinned gents who shot him after proping the door open? Yep there was. No black reverends protesting that situation were there! I’m just leveling the field. Besides, Jenny looks good in a hoodie. It must be cold in California.

    Yikes…. What a face on that wench. I’m glad she is not governor of Michigan anymore. Pretty sad display of someone from HHHHarvard!

  6. Kenny Clark says:

    The police chief should have been fired right away for not arresting the suspect in the murder of Travon Martin! Plain and simple.
