“Well, I think that this is an atrocity,” said Sharpton. “I think that it is probably one of the worst situations that I’ve seen. What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime, just bringing some Skittles and iced tea home to your brother, and be killed and someone can claim self-defense having been exposed with all kinds of lies, all kinds of inconsistencies. … Even at trial when he is exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted. This is a sad day in the country. I think that we clearly must move on to the next step in terms of the federal government and in terms of the civil courts. Clearly, we want people to be disciplined, strategic. But this is a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country.”
So, Sharpton, in spite of a jury verdict, has decided the federal courts should now go after Zimmerman. This from a complete jerk who has disgraced himself and others by his outrageous race baiting. NAACP is also a disgrace calling for the DOJ to go after Zimmerman. The LSM has disgraced themselves as well, particularly NBC and CNN. All of them are proclaiming themselves to be judge and jury. Demanding the DOJ seek civil rights charges and using Zimmerman as a political football is nothing short of criminal. The race baiters don’t want justice, they want revenge and to be treated differently than any other group. They won’t address the real problems facing black youth in the US. That would mean their own failures would be put on display and, they have failed miserably. Even the pols on the Hill have gotten into the ‘Zimmerman must be hanged’ meme, that is also a disgrace, they were not elected to be judge and jury

And…not to be left out….the Twitterverse explodes with hate and threats….up to and including killing the jurors.
It is my hope Preezy will keep his big mouth shut…..he’s become part of the problem and never offers any solutions.
Everything is now pretty much cleaned up from the ‘rain days’. The last storm was a doozy, knocking out power and downing trees. The blog will also be back to ‘normal’ starting this week. Thanks to all of you for your patience.
