For the last couple hours I’ve pored over various news stories about this senseless tragedy. I’ve listened to all the 911 calls. I’ve read all of the eyewitness accounts; some of them conflicting.
If, for a few minutes, I can pretend I’m law enforcement (I used to watch CSI… and have a shirt from Vegas to prove it) it still wouldn’t help. I cannot come to a conclusion about what should be done here… I don’t have the evidence.
Neither does the stupid President. He normally doesn’t know what he’s talking about; and he has no more information than the public has. But, being an election year, he has to jump in front of the camera and say if he had a son, his son would look like Trayvon? Well, duh, of course he would, Prez! You trying to tell us you’re black? And if you were half Peruvian, Barack, maybe your son would look like the shooter, George Zimmerman.
Then the wonder(less) twins, “Reverend” Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have to jump in and make this a hate crime.
In my opinion, I don’t believe it was. But these talking heads choose to make it one.
Making this a race issue has precipitated the following:
- The Black Panther Party has offered a $10,000 bounty for the abduction of George Zimmerman.
- Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has warned of ‘retaliation’.
- The extremely racist Spike Lee tweeted Zimmerman’s address and phone numbers.
There ya go knuckleheads…. make a bad situation worse! Maybe someone will kill Zimmerman. Then it’s all even? Love thy neighbor? Treat others as you want to be treated?
And now THIS…. There’s actually a website selling this crap:
This world is a mess….
