I am ashamed of the response I see on Freerepublic about this (Check my signup - I am NO newby!)
Many on FR are prejudging this EXACTLY the same way the race-grievance industry prejudged Zimmerman. Zimmerman MUST be guilty because Trayvon was black and this shooter MUST be guilty because he’s an ex-cop.
I don’t know who is wrong here (and would NEVER presume to know based on the initial shoddy, biased reporting.) But TOO many on FR “know” what happened because of who the shooter was...
This is a retired cop with a good record and yet the judge is holding him without bond because the seriousness of the charge and the evidence of his guilt is substantial.
Well, what does that say about public confidence in police officers, if his status as a former one is an automatic strike against his credibility, in so many peoples’ eyes?
