Amen. I completely agree with Mr. Krauthammer.
Really Charles I’m a little shocked that even you have taken the Liberal
Media bait. They keep inserting the Stand Your Ground law issue into the
equation of this Zimmerman case. Stand Your Ground had nothing to do with this
case “NOTHING”. Zimmerman’s defense was absolute defense
against death or serious bodily injury. The liberal media keep inserting this
issue, why is no one asking why? What is their agenda for doing this when it has
nothing to do with it. Why are you foolishly falling for it ,you’re
smarter and more political savvy then this. Is the liberal media doing that out
of ignorance or intentional?
As usual, Krauthammer and the truth have no acquaintance with each other. Sad.
I love how folks like Charles talk about how we aren't ruled by mob rule
and that justice was done. Yet, when it comes to a certain court ruling a few
weeks ago they were complaining about how judges overruled what the majority
(aka mob rule) wanted. So which is it? Do we do what the majority
wants of are we ruled by judges, laws, and procedures?
@bookemmarko:"Stand Your Ground had nothing to do with this case
'NOTHING.'"Oh yeah? What is 'stand your
ground' if it's not being required to back down and flee when someone
threatens or attacks you? It sounds to me like self defense and stand your
ground are the same things.There are those who say you
shouldn't be able to 'stand your ground' i.e., pull out your gun
and shoot someone when/if you're threatened.Of course, if you
do shoot and kill someone because you thought you were threatened, you'll
need to show strong evidence that you were, in fact, threatened or a jury will
send you to prison for much of your life for killing someone... (unless
you're Black and have a Black jury).
There are clearly political forces ready to jump on this story to further their
agenda. There are the NAACP/Sharpton type who make a grand living
pumping racism.There are the democrats, like Holder, who will use it
to push to take guns away from citizens so they can have more government
control.The president seems to be in both those camps. Why no
condemnation of beating people who look white while saying 'that is for
Trayvon'? It is clear enough that beating people based solely on their
color is completely wrong and racists. But instead he promotes understanding for
those who beat on whites in a fit of anger. The message I hear is the president
thinks it is ok for blacks to be angry and beat up whites. He is wrong.But no press coverage for the facts of the case and common sense. And the
masses seem to pick sides based on feelings rather than truth and facts.
"Mob rule" is not allowing a person to have access to their
constitutional rights. Zimmermann was acquitted by a jury. Now we are upset
because those with a rabid lynch mob mentality were not satisfied with their own
biased and pre-determined verdict? Elitist opinion does not control. This is not
an PC run oligarchy.
