The racial haters were warming up their lynch-mobs over the weekend. Seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a white man, and the majority of the pundits automatically assumed it was a hate crime. Then an eyewitness weighed in. According to his report, Martin attacked George Zimmerman, the white, neighborhood watch volunteer, and Zimmerman shot the teen in self-defense while he was being attacked and beaten. A broken nose, crime scene investigations and the 911 call also verified these details.
But Obama, the alleged Constitutional lawyer, had already weighed in, taking the side of the aggressive teen. Black Panthers have placed a dead-or-alive bounty on the white man. Marches and rallies were staged nation-wide this week, and in the meantime the U.S. Constitution has been forgotten or completely ignored by vigilante activism.
There is a reason for the presumption of innocence in our laws. Crimes are committed and accidents happen. When they occur, emotions are high, and witnesses must be deposed. Arrests and charges may be forthcoming based on the evidence, or they may not happen at all. These details are dealt with, hopefully, in a more dispassionate manner, so that justice may be done. The masses are not just. They are emotional. As details and facts emerge, the full story is known. Then and only then, can justice be served.
The police did not file charges based on the evidence of the case. That is when the cries of racism began. The neighborhood watch volunteer weeps over the life he felt compelled to take, in order to save his own. There is a bounty on his head and death threats from black hate groups. A young teenager is dead, shot for his stupidity. Obama quickly steps into the fray because once again he's sure it's a minority against white issue. Either that, or he wants to divide the nation using racism. He's a master at it. He sat under the preaching of Jeremiah Wright long enough to know how to hate others. This may be a true, racist crime. If not however, it is great propaganda used by the left to incite violence, divide the nation, and create a state of emergency. Then what? According to recent executive orders, Obama rules. The teenager is not the only death in the news these days. The truth is dead, too, and so is the U.S. Constitution.
