Comment Of The Day

The comment of the day comes from Miguel at the Gun Free Zone blog. It is about the George Zimmerman trial. I have followed the case since the beginning but really haven't commented much on it as others have done a much better job. The case is almost to a close with the defense as I write this is making its closing argument. I think this case is a travesty of justice as does Miguel.

So what we have now is a trial so tainted by prosecutorial misconduct and political pressure it has become something you see on TV about kangaroo courts in Third World countries, a very dangerous precedent to have. And I don’t care if you think Zimmerman is guilty and that he should spend the rest of his life in prison, this is not the way that a verdict of guilty should be achieved and we should not be accomplices on the travesty because it will make us feel better. If we let feelings corrupt our rights to a fair and impartial trial, you can bet your life it will be used against others and even yourself.

But by then it will be too late.
