Once again, African-Americans have been sold a bill of goods about what constitutes “justice” in a particular circumstance. And it seems likely that once again the promised “justice” will not eventuate.
The last prominent case of this was the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin shooting. Stipulated that George Zimmerman is a complete asshat, there was never enough evidence to properly charge him with homicide, let alone convict him. And yet Af-Ams, incited by the professional demagogues, were convinced that anything short of Zimmerman being drawn and quartered was a miscarriage of justice.
Then we saw the photos of Zimmerman, somewhat worse for wear. A thoughtful person might come to the conclusion that perhaps things were not so cut and dried. But once incited or committed to a political position, many were –or at least professed to be– outraged by Zimmerman’s acquittal.
Similarly with the shooting of Michael Brown, blacks have been sold a bill of goods about Darren Wilson. Of course, now we have conflicting eyewitness reports. If this story about Wilson having a fractured eye socket turns out to be true, look out.
But according to the Beeb, 76% of Af-Ams have “little or no confidence” in the official investigation.
(That sound you just heard was me doing the biggest facepalm I have done since Obama was re-elected.)
I have no idea how you deal with this. There is every possibility, probability even, that no charges will stick to Wilson.
Hey, let’s send Eric Holder to straighten things out!
The veneer of civilization wears ever thinner.
