The People Vs. Justice

The streets are full of idiots these days.  Mobs of people interrupted traffic on 288 yesterday and more protests are planned by people who think that the Zimmerman trial is an indication that our justice system is broken because Zimmerman was found not guilty. The verdict means, however, that the opposite is true.  This is yet another case of someone being tried (or in this case, retried) in the court of public opinion.   This court does not care for the rule of law, it makes decisions on nothing more than sensationalism and ideology; facts are to be ignored.  In this case, Trayvon Martin, a young black male, was shot and killed by Zimmerman, an Hispanic member of a neighborhood watch program who thought Martin was engaged in criminal activity.  Zimmerman followed Martin, claiming that Martin was behaving suspiciously.  A fight ensued ending in gun fire.
In most cases, this would not have made national news, but in this case, Martin is black and Zimmerman has a white-sounding name.  The fact that he is Hispanic doesn’t even enter into the discussion.  Some people claim that he is half-white–as if he was contaminated by racism since he has some white in him.  The police didn’t initially arrest him and the prosecutor didn’t initially charge him.  It was only after the race-baiters got involved were any criminal proceedings initiated.
After several years of media scrutiny, the trial began and in the end, Zimmerman was found not guilty by a jury of his peers (if you consider 6 white women the peers of a Latino male) after 16 hours of deliberation.  The facts of the case are simple: the police didn’t think there was evidence of murder, the prosecutors didn’t think there was evidence of murder, but the media thought there was and the media ran story after story and pushed the issue to the federal government to force Florida to try Zimmerman for murder.  Now, when the evidence that prompted the cops and prosecutors not to press charges initially was put before a jury, they don’t find evidence of murder either.
But the story doesn’t stop there.
Now the same people who wanted to lynch Zimmerman in the first place are organizing protests across the country, as if doing so will force the courts to reverse the verdict.  Marches in most major cities disrupted traffic and caused economic troubles for merchants and businesses.  Did any of it help the Martin family deal with the loss of their son?  Probably not, but that didn’t stop the court of public opinion.
Again, this court doesn’t care about facts.  All they care about is creating a firestorm of public outrage and getting media attention to further their political aims.  This highlights one underlying problem in America: racism cannot be allowed to die.  It is not the white population that is fostering racism in America these days.  It is the black leadership establishment who cannot exist in a society without racism.  If everyone was color blind, there would be no need to have lobbyists in Washington to promote affirmative action.  There would be no need for new legislation forcing people to consider race in staffing decisions, promotions, educational admissions or any other facet of life, which would mean that an entire industry would cease to exist.
We as a country have elected a black president–twice.  This was done not just because every black person voted for him, but because people from all races (having lost their minds) voted for him.  This tells me that we as a society have moved beyond race, much to the dismay of those who constantly insist that America is racist.  These ideas are even apparent to the supreme court, who decided that America has moved far enough away from the racial divides of the early part of our history to repeal racially motivated restrictions on election polling policies.
But that isn’t good enough for the far left.  They want to remind any and everyone that America has a history that includes slavery and because of that, it will ALWAYS be a racist country, filled with racist whites who want nothing more than to kill the black man with impunity.
Martin was killed.  This is a tragedy.  There is no denying that.  But the American justice system, having had its arm twisted into knots by the left, still found that his death was not murder nor was it manslaughter.  The evidence has spoken and a jury has issued its verdict.  The justice system has worked as it is designed to.  We have to remember that the justice system is not designed to punish the guilty, but rather to protect the innocent.  Even if it means protecting the innocent from a racially motivated lynch mob hell-bent on issuing opinion-based verdicts that have no basis in the truth that wish to maintain an anti racist system that promotes racism.

    Anytime I see this guy’s blog picture on fb I think it is you for a split second. http://dougwils.com/
    Not sure why because in comparison the two of you look nothing alike, maybe it is just because neither of you are using a photograph.
