Tom Mcguire over at Just One Minute has been providing first-rate coverage of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case that is superior in depth and breadth to what we’re seeing coming out of the “professional” media, and his latest post cites another pair respected left-leaning legal bloggers that seem to indicate that Angela Corey’s surprising decision to charge Zimmerman with 2nd degree murder is an uphill battle.
Actually, it’s probably closer to “doomed to fail,” “entirely political in nature,” and in my opinion grounds to consider the very real possibility of a pretrial dismissal of the charges against Zimmerman, and the eventual censure or disbarment of Angela Corey for what seems to be a prosecution based more on her hopes for reelection than any realistic view that the evidence supports a conviction.
Sadly, I tried to have rational, fact-and-evidence based discussions on the trial earlier today, and the “lynch first, try later” mentality seems to be not just alive and well but predominate on the political left, and particularly in the black community where this has morphed from a matter of self-defense to one of symbolism and racial solidarity.
Zimmerman seems to have been thrown to the wolves by his fellow Democrats, and the Hispanic community seems oddly subdued as blacks have savaged him and attempted to make this a racial issue instead of a crime issue. Instead, it seems only white conservatives and libertarians are standing up for this “white Hispanic” Democrat, or for that matter, for the rule of law instead of a culture of lynching.
