Whatever really happened that night in Sanford, Florida, it’s clear that prosecutors have not proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt that George Zimmerman is guilty of murder. (It remains to be seen whether they can get him on a lesser charge of manslaughter.) Let’s hope and pray that people don’t decide to get justice on the streets if they don’t like the verdict (not that anyone is predicting riots if Zimmerman is convicted).
This was a politically motivated case from the start, based on a false racial narrative from an irresponsible and agenda-driven media, and helped along by our shameless Executive Branch. Remember when justice was supposed to be blind? God, help us.
