Well, at least we can pretend we have some sort of judicial process now, though I think at this point it is more likely to be theater than anything regardless of the outcome. Can you imagine the potential jury selection?

Zimmerman will be found guilty, no matter what the evidence or lack of is. Mob rule is just what the obama administration wants.

If anyone should be found not guilty, it should be Trayvon. He defended himself against an armed thug who didn't think a black boy had any business in "his" neighborhood and started a confrontation. The aggressor can't claim self-defense in that situation, no matter what the outcome.

What about Tyrone Woodfork and the 85 year old woman he raped and killed and her husband 90 year old whom he beat almost to death. No media coverage, no Jackson or Sharpton talking about that. No Obama or Holder talking about that. No political cartoons.
