George Zimmerman: justice is served


Acquitted: hooray!

Steve Sailer:
Will the jury’s repudiation of the national media’s Narrative cause any second thoughts about the press's prejudices that caused so many to get this story so wrong for so long? It would be nice to hope that this long, sad story at least causes a few people to notice the biases of the conventional wisdom.

I doubt it, though.

  1. What's to "hooray!" about?

    Only two people know exactly what happened. One is dead. The other stood on his right to remain silent.

    What we do know is that a teenager is dead because an armed adult unnecessarily provoked a confrontation. Whether it was murder, negligent manslaughter, or self-defense, it was a situation that need not have happened. If you're going to carry a deadly weapon, you ought to be careful not to yourself create situations where you're tempted to use it.

    It's a tragedy from beginning to end.

    2. A thug-in-training was killed, as happened four times in Chicago just this past weekend. That's four more "tragedies from beginning to end" to wring your hands over right there.

    3. The "tragedy" is that this ever went to trial in the first place. "From beginning to end" this was a purely political prosecution; there was never any evidence that the defendant was guilty of anything other than being a little bit of a bumbling incompetent. Last I checked, that's not a crime.

      Yeah, it's sad that a young man (please, let's stop calling this muscular, fully-grown individual a "kid") is dead. It's sad that people die every day in every major city in America, but it doesn't mean that every car accident, malignant tumor, and heart attack needs a criminal trial. The original judgment of the cops and prosecutors- that this was an unfortunate incident, but one that didn't merit a criminal trial- was clearly the correct one.

      This only became a national issue because a shameless news media and a Presidential administration drunk on self-righteous delusions decided it might serve their purposes. Should we say "Hooray" in celebration of the fact that they weren't able to pervert justice enough to make an example out of a hapless nobody? Absolutely- hooray!

  2. "...there was never any evidence that the defendant was guilty of anything other than being a little bit of a bumbling incompetent. Last I checked, that's not a crime."

    Being "bumbling" with a gun and killing someone is a crime. It's called manslaughter, or negligent homicide. Carrying a gun rightly carries with it heavy responsibility. I hope this guy now knows himself well enough not to ask for his gun back.

    "(please, let's stop calling this muscular, fully-grown individual a "kid")"

    I assume you've never had children. I've had seventeen-year-olds. They are kids, even if they think they're not. Part of being an adult means recognizing that. Being a kid isn't just about physical strength, but emotional immaturity, and that lack of judgment so characteristic of the young. Adults have a responsibility to take those sorts of thing into account.

    Total Rubbish. Adults do not have to accept anything of the sort.
