In the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin killing, the first official meeting of the Florida Governor’s Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection convened recently.
The 17-member panel, led by Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and the Rev. R.B. Holmes, wasted no time creating its mission, scope, guiding principles and schedule. During the nearly four-hour meeting on May 1, it also made clear the goal to complete its assignment in an “unbiased” and “transparent” matter that will be void of emotional or personal agendas.
