Imperfect that at times it might appear, the US justice system works…but perhaps not to the individual or group who find themselves at odds with the decisions of the American justice system.
For those who argue that injustice as been done by a judicial system based on laws and morality, I suggest they pick up their belongings and move to a second or third world country where such justice and its visibility to the populace do not exist. Take your pick…Russia, Iran, Somalia, Nigeria or even some South American countries which do not have laws and a Judeo-Christian morality to judge right from wrong.
Move there and see if your attitude regarding how the wheels of justice should turn will change.
Treyvon Martin’s family, ostensibly a Christian family, is now under extreme pressure from race baiters such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Barack Obama’s black-led Department of Justice to extract a pound of flesh from Zimmerman by way of a federal hate-crimes suit. Such action would not provide “justice”, only a pound of flesh.
Remember that when you see a sign saying “Justice for Treyvon”, it simply means that someone still wants their pound of flesh, even after the American justice system has properly sequestered a group of peers and provided a means by which to quietly and efficiently churn through the evidence.
The death toll by murder in Chicago over the past decade is greater than the number of American forces who have died in Afghanistan since the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom, according to a police analysis.
In addition, police reports in Chicago – where President Obama once worked as a community organizer and where his former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, now serves as mayor – show most of the city’s massive murder mayhem is black-on-black crime.
Where’s the demonstrations and outrage from Al Sharpton, Obama, Holder and Jesse Jackson? Where are the signs that demand change?
I say, change the laws instead of the verdict if you feel that justice has not been done…otherwise, if you continue to wave the “Justice for Treyvon” sign in our face, I have no sympathy for you other than you will have to hope for that pound of flesh and then hopefully be quiet…until the next time when you believe that a miscarriage of justice has been made…and the race baiters call you up via social media and ask you to start the public demonstrations all over again.
