The founder of True Healing Under God (T.H.U.G.), John Barnett, released plans for a rally and vigil for the Charlotte area.
Barnett was asked by Rev. Al Sharpton to hold an event in Charlotte to bring attention to the controversial George Zimmerman verdict. At both events people will sign petitions to hand over to the Department of Justice. The collected signatures will try and convince the Federal government to press criminal charges against Zimmerman for killing teenager Trayvon Martin.
Barnett wants the events to not only support the Martin family and get the federal government to step in, but he wants to focus on the problems facing America.
"Express our thoughts about violence in this country," Barnett said. "Racial profiling. We are going to have victims there. We are encouraging mothers or parents to come and bring a picture of their loved ones, who have lost a loved one in Charlotte, who have been slain or murdered."
The organizer says the events will be peaceful.
"I'm always about increasing the peace," Barnett said. "And I do believe there are some individuals that may take matters into their own hands. But, I'm not for violence or riots. We don't promote that."
