Politics and race: Hype vs fact


The Justice Department sent the FBI to find evidence of Zimmerman harboring any racial animus, but found none. It sent people to organize anti-Zimmerman protest, it didn't work. The Justice Department is now encouraging everyone to call them with any dirt on Zimmerman.

These tactics seem to fit Fincke's brand of justice, but I like to think of Lady Justice standing proud with a blindfold, and balanced scales.

Maybe I'm just naive.

I rarely watch Sean Hannity, but wanted to hear Zimmerman speak. What I saw, and what Fincke writes, assures me he did not watch Hannity, but gleaned bits and pieces from MSNBC after the fact. The cut-and-paste journalism used at MSNBC is laughable to anyone but the extreme left. Fincke also states he can read Zimmerman's mind the night of the shooting and is positive Martin was profiled and calls Zimmerman and unrepentant killer. Professor Fincke, why didn't you testify? Your insight would have sealed the prosecution's case. You don't slant the facts, professor, you break their back.

Better you stick to the fluffy musings of your childhood.
