Fair Trial?

zimmerman1I find it interesting how racists already know the guilt George Zimmerman.  Racists like Jamie Fox who wore a Travon Martin shirt in public as if to say Zimmerman is guilty.  How do these folks know that Zimmerman isn’t telling the truth or that the truth lies somewhere between what they think and what Zimmerman says.  To my knowledge our systems still is innocent until proven guilty.  I would venture that not many people know all of the facts of the case and certainly not celebrities who just like to try to show their cred by acting hip and edgy.

Dueling Dershowitz

It is rare that I find myself rooting for someone like Alan Dershowitz.  His is a liberal that I have rather disliked for many years.  I really should not say that I dislike him, but I typically dislike his left views, but lately he has been standing up for what is right (not conservative, but right) and has been criticized for it.  I sense that Mr. Dershowitz is an old fashioned liberal.  He is someone that a conservative would disagree with, argue with, debate with, get exasperated with, but at the end of the day you could find some common ground with and accomplish something.
