Florida Offering Human Sacrifice to Appease Savage Mobs

Florida’s officialdom has offered up a human sacrifice – namely George Zimmerman – in an effort to assuage blood thirst mobs stirred up by the usual coterie of self aggrandizing ‘leaders’ who are constantly eager to exacerbate and exploit racial animosities for their own purposes: Barack Obama, the despicably dishonorable Eric Holder, members of the Congressional Black Caucus, the complicit media, and, of course, the reverent  charlatans, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

The task of appeasing the shameful crowd assembled by those profiteers was assigned to a special prosecutor. She performed the task by charging Mr. Zimmerman with second degree murder. According to this report, the grounds for the charge are so thin that Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz believes they call into question the ethics of the special prosecutor. Another professor agrees, maintaining here that  the charge has no probably cause basis.

Unless new facts emerge countering those now known or Mr. Zimmerman (i) lacks competent legal representation, (ii) succumbs to the temptation to end his nightmare by accepting a plea bargain, or (iii) draws an aberrant judge and/or jury, the charges against him will be dismissed or he will be found not guilty. This, however, does not make what is transpiring any less of a travesty.  The life Mr. Zimmerman had is over, having been ended in large part by the mobs and his state's appeasing elected officials and their politically appointed special prosecutor.

Three excellent essays, each by leader of the past’s real civil rights movement spell out the facts and ramifications of, and offer different perspectives on the case stemming from the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.  All three-- this one by Shelby Steele, this one by Arnold S. Trebach, and this one by Peter Ferrara – are recommended.

Three further points:

First, one of the essays referred to above notes the lack of attention being paid to two inter-racial murders that were committed by a young black man at about the same time that Mr. Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin. The same noteworthy point could be made about the concurrent beating to death of a white Berkeley homeowner in his own front yard by a young black man who was unarmed except for a ceramic flower pot that the violent intruder picked up and wielded as an offensive weapon.

Second, a point about the mobs and their leaders -- they scream for justice, chanting "no justice, no peace," but what they really demand and demand constantly is blood and blood money.

Finally, one has ponder when, if ever, those responsible for our governance will learn that throwing red meat to satisfy the demands of irrationally angry mobs is futile, foolish, and counterproductive.  Doing so may quiet the insatiable savages momentarily, but it only strengthens and encourages them  to hunger for and demand more in the immediate future.
