Like everyone else in the country, I have an opinion on the George Zimmerman trial. Largely, I have stayed out of this affair. Though this is a matter of importance, the fact is that while we have a government that so readily embraces tyranny and corruption, the focus needs to be on remedying that.
Now, the government’s corruption and radical agenda has bled into the George Zimmerman trial. So let’s talk about it…
While America strives to maintain a judicial system that relies on an objective review of the facts, the Achilles’ Heel of the American judicial system is that we must rely on individuals, regular people who bring with them their own experiences, own prejudices and their own information.
Its imperfect, but the trial by jury is a time-tested means of justice. We must, however, work to try and try people based on facts, not media portrayals. Whether one feels George Zimmerman is guilty or innocent, the fact remains that this trial began a year ago when the masses, without knowledge of the events that occurred, took to the streets to demand Zimmerman’s prosecution.
Even President Obama got in on the mob and declared, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” I cannot possibly imagine what Obama was thinking uttering such a phrase before reviewing the facts other than to purposefully incite flared anger.
It was discovered by Judicial Watch earlier this week that the Department of Justice had deployed the Community Relations Service (CRS) to Sanford, Florida, to help organize rallies and various protests against George Zimmerman.
Though neither the Police Chief nor the District Attorney felt charges were warranted, mass protests forced politicians to intervene and charge Zimmerman.
According to Judicial Watch, the taxpayers paid for DOJ thugs to travel to Florida to help organize racially-charged protests. While 6 jurors decide the fate of George Zimmerman, the truth is that many in Florida and the media simultaneously tried and convicted him and they did it with the help of our government.
I am outraged at the level of involvement our government takes in squashing the ideas of Americans with which they disagree and promoting the ideas of those on which they do agree.
Our judicial branch needs to operate based on facts; not prejudices, not media-induced frenzies. It can hardly be called a fair trial when the government has a hand in stirring anger. It is just the latest example of a government that seems compelled to whatever they please, regardless of their oath to uphold laws and general ethical behavior.
