The George Zimmerman trial process grinds on, and I have come to the firm conclusion based on the evidence that the whole thing is a travesty, that Zimmerman was charged only because it was politically convenient and out of fear of civil unrest, i.e. a de facto lynch mob. Old Media did its usual job of slanting, obfuscating, and flat out lying when needed to support the mob. But what I find interesting are articles like this where even Old Media doesn’t bother to pretend the trial verdict will be based on facts or law, but primarily on the demographics of the jury. That is, race, class, and personal biases. That it has come to this is unremarked, but it seems to me we could save some money and time by just having the jury vote without the bother of needing lawyers and a judge to preside over what Old Media seems to consider irrelevant pro forma activity.
