The Zimmerman “kangaroo court”

2013-07-02T22:22:06+00:00

The show trial or “kangaroo court” for George Zimmerman continues, despite the fact that the prosecution’s case seems weaker by the day. It’s becoming apparent that the charges of second-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old  Trayvon Martin were brought against George Zimmerman simply because the authorities feared race riots would erupt if they didn’t charge Zimmerman. And now the authorities are afraid of race riots if Zimmerman is found not guilty.

Mob rule is a lousy reason to bring a case to court, I think. And if mobs want to riot in the event that Zimmerman is found not guilty, then let them riot, and let them suffer the consequences of their antisocial conduct, just as Trayvon Martin did.

Dozens of black teenagers are shot and killed in America every day, and no one bats an eye because blacks are doing the killing. But if a non-black person does the killing, then apparently it’s a problem, at least for the racist agitators calling for Zimmerman’s head.

Hopefully the jury will demonstrate more intelligence in acquitting Zimmerman than the prosecutors did in bringing this ridiculous case to trial.
