"... Martin was walking to his father’s house carrying a can of iced tea and a box of Skittles when he was gunned down by Zimmerman ..."And on it goes! This column is a continuation of the media's disgracefully biased coverage of the Zimmerman / Martin story.
The left/lib establishment (including, or especially, the media) had it's collective mind made up from square one, before any evidence was presented - a white man, George Zimmerman, was guilty of "gunning down" an innocent black teenager "carrying ... a box of Skittles". They immediately and eagerly stoked the racial angle. NBC news doctored the tape of a 911 call to make Zimmerman sound like a racist (while he's anything but). Even the boneheaded President Obama weighed in with his "if I had a son he'd look like Travon" idiocy.
And whose opinion is quoted in this piece (besides the race-baiting Obama)? The raving race baiter, Al Sharpton, and the disgraced (for, inter alia, soliciting hookers on the public dime) former NY Governor, Eliot Spitzer.
The trial is over, the jury has spoken. But there's not a word in the Sun article of what was presented at trial and why the jury found Mr. Zimmerman not guilty.
If this episode has stoked racial tension and racial division, the press and the left/lib establishment it represents need only look in the mirror to see who is largely to blame.
