I was watching CNN on Saturday morning (long story) and some talking heads were discussing the latest evidence in the Zimmerman/Martin case.
A summary of this evidence is as follows:
- Basically all physical and eyewitness and circumstantial evidence supports (or doesn’t contradict) Zimmerman’s story, but . . .
- Zimmerman might be racist.
According to the legal experts on CNN, it would seem that if the latter point is true, the former point is moot and Zimmerman is guilty of whatever he’s been charged with.
Others would seem to think that the evidence should be the only thing that matters. Apparently Dershowitz needs some sensitivity training.
The facts don’t matter – neither does being right.
Regardless of the evidence, I bet we can predict the actual breakdown of votes by the jury based solely on the race of the jurors. Welcome to "justice" in a diverse society.
