The Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman story has a way to run. Every day seems to bring something new. Last week’s doctoring of audio tapes between Zimmerman and the 911 dispatcher aired by NBC (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/post/nbc-to-do-internal-investigation-on-zimmerman-segment/2012/03/31/gIQAc4HhnS_blog.html?hpid=z6 ) are now under internal investigation by NBC (a once reputable news source).
Yesterday David Franke passed along the following article by friend Walter Williams and his own observations that:
“Walter Williams is SO good!
“Right now we are witnessing the biggest lynch mob in the U.S. since the heyday of the Ku Klux Klan. I refer to the mob out to lynch that “white” hispanic, Zimmerman. This is a lynch mob made up of “black leaders” and MSNBC white-as-white-bread liberals.
“I have no idea whether Zimmerman is guilty or not, but I am willing to wait and let the police and courts and lawyers on both sides—and a jury, no doubt–go through the process of determining that. And then, based on the evidence, I might venture whether I agree or disagree with the jury and the authorities.
“Not this lynch mob, however. They KNOW who is guilty, and don’t confuse them with any facts or due process. “
