In the case of Trayvon Martin, is it possible to let the justice system do its work? I have seen enough cases where people have been tried and found guilty in the press–and then the rest of the story comes out. This is not the time for street demonstrations. That time may come, of course. The man has not even been charged yet. President Obama, as usual, felt compelled to speak out, putting a racial tinge on things, before knowing all the facts. Something Hillary Clinton said actually applies here: “Let’s all take a deep breath.”
