Could Look Like George Zimmerman'

Obama's comment, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon,"
is one curious statement for a President of the United States, who
is a supposed Constitutional scholar. It borders on inciting angry
man justice and panders to the lowest unthinking masses in America.
Instead of using the incident as a "teaching moment",
to teach that facts are gathered around a possible crime and, if
determined necessary, decided in court before an impartial jury
as to guilt or innocence, the President says nothing close. He panders
to the angry crowd.
I have no idea
what went on between Zimmerman and Trayvon. Let the facts come out.
But the facts, to date, suggest there is more than one side to this
story. Far from being a racist, Zimmerman's lawyer says
Zimmerman mentored black youth. On CNN, Zimmerman's lawyer said
that Zimmerman had a broken nose and a huge gash on the back of
his head, suggesting a pretty violent struggle.
On the recording
of a 911 call, repeated cries of help can be heard before
the gunshot. A witness says
those cries were made by Zimmerman who was on the ground being beaten
Again, I hold
no opinion as to what happened. all the facts need to come out.
Obama may fear for a son he doesn't have, who might look like Trayvon.
I fear the continuing collapse of rule based on the Constitution
and in the ideals it tried to shape, especially via the Bill of
Rights. Crowd hysteria, politically-correct
hate, envy and a massive creeping moves toward central planning
means many of us could in the future be trampled and look like George
Zimmerman, probably worse.
