Vindication for George Zimmerman

On July 13, a six-woman jury acquitted George Zimmerman on all charges of murdering 17 year-old Trayvon Martin.  The jury determined that Zimmerman had acted in self-defense in the shooting of Martin.

Crowds of blacks gathered in protests and riots, burning and looting stores, and demanding the Department of Justice open up an investigation into charging Zimmerman with violating Martin’s civil rights.  “Justice for Trayvon” signs were everywhere.  The Media was amazed and agreed that it appeared Zimmerman had gotten away with murder.  This weekend, Obama went on television to say that he could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago.

But four days after his acquittal, Zimmerman had what the News Service Reports called “a new run-in with Seminole County authorities, as a Good Samaritan.”  Yet somehow, that news didn’t get reported until after Obama spoke on Sunday about being like Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman, along with another man, helped rescue a family of four from their rolled-over Ford Explorer on Wednesday, July 17.  The accident happened less than a mile from the Twin Lakes community where Zimmerman served as a volunteer community watchman.  Yet Attorney General Eric Holder says that the Justice Department is continuing its investigation of Zimmerman.

Obama says he could have been Trayvon Martin years ago.  If so, either Hillary Clinton or Mitt Romney would be president right now.  Preferably, Romney – someone we could trust.  Think of the alternate universe possibilities.  Millions of people would be gainfully employed.  We’d be able to purchase affordable health care.  Our debt would be considerably lower.  Marijuana would still be illegal and so would gay marriage.  The Trayvon Martins of the world would be behind bars, where they could neither kill nor harm anyone nor be killed themselves, except by other inmates.

Those of you who have sons:  who would you rather have your son be like?  Trayvon Martin, who was expelled from his high school for tardiness, truancy, and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, as well as stolen goods?

Or George Zimmerman, a concerned citizen trying to protect his community who ran to the scene of an accident to rescue the victims?  One of the anchorettes on Fox News called the action “bizarre.”

The proper word is “heroic.”
