Justice: When you get in a traffic accident and the other guy gets the ticket.
On the eve of the beginning of the George Zimmerman trial, it may be worthwhile to consider how to evaluate what has been happening, and what will likely happen.
In analyzing the events yet to comeand the George Zimmerman case will not be the end, regardless of the outcomeconsider that all of this is essentially a battle between social justice and justice.
Justice may be considered to be an outcome of a criminal case in consonance with the law and the rule of law. It embodies the ethical and honorable actions of every entity in the criminal justice process.
If the police make false arrests or commit perjury, justice is seriously damaged or impossible, and respect for the rule of law diminishes. If prosecutors files charges without sufficient cause, if they overcharge in the hope of extorting a plea to a lower charge, if they commit perjury or do not live up to their obligations to provide discovery, if they collude with other attorneys with financial interests in their case, the same consequencesfor individuals and society as a wholeoccur.
If judges do not do their jobs and act as a curb on the unethical and overzealous actions of the police and prosecutors. If they take sides, or legislate from the bench, the same consequencesand worseoccur.
Justice is fragile, yet absolutely necessary. Its correct and consistent application consonant with the rule of law is the glue that holds together our representative republic. If citizens cant believe that the rule of law holds, anarchy become possible, even likely.
Social justice, on the other hand, is nothing more than the seizure of financial and/or political spoils usually to the advantage of specific, favored victim groups and the politicians that pander to them.
In most cases, it requires ignoring the Constitution, the law and the rule of law, and usually requires forcing othersor the taxpayersto subsidize something the victim group wants.........................
It’s in MOM’s hand.
I hope he is ready to do a lot of objecting and I hope the state doesn't disappoint us all and forget to put Witness 8 on the stand.
If the judge doe not manage to bully the jury into a guilty verdict, the Feds will charge Zimmeman with an amorphous Civil Rights violation which is “proved” by the making of the charge and Zimmerman will be duly convicted and sent to prison for a long time.
they should just start showing images of an egg being fertilized instead of the eight year old trayvon and show one of those Barbarian Brothers as Zimmerman...
So far, no St. Trayvon Memorial Hoodie orders from the jury, but it will only take one juror to hang it.
Amazing the amount of mis-and-disinformation floating about on this case. The "White Guilt" thing a lot bigger and much more common phenomenon than I ever thought. There are many otherwise normal-appearing white people who seem to think a Negro simply cannot be guilty of anything.
Now if only each one of them would buy a St. Trayvon Hoodie!
Isn’t that “creative” witness 8?
Maybe you need to throw in a bag of skittles and some watermelon tea to boot !
Per you post product development is sending two boxes of soap for washing hands of white guilt -- one of white hispanic smoking gun scented and the other skittles lean scented. Please advise which sells the best.
This article nails exactly what is going on in the GZ trial and across America. The “social justice” crowd has learned to use the media and mechanisms of civilized law to pursue what they are really all about, the law of the jungle. Traybots believe to a man that TM was justified in attacking GZ because GZ looked at him or called the police, apparently the State of Florida agrees. It is no accident that Crump goes around proclaiming this to be a “watershed” case — he wants this to be the norm.
Also, if Algonquin J. Crump be a witness, and is asked to leave the courtroom, and his testimony do not agree with the other witnesses whom he interview for his affidavits, do that mean he join Barry H. Obama on the list of former attorneys of America?
