Now that the Zimmerman trial is over, until Eric Holder decides to press civil charges, let's talk about another murder, or several murders.
Over the 4th of July weekend in Chicago, there were 62 people shot, resulting in 12 murders. Where is the outrage about this? Why are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson not holding protests for arrest and conviction of those responsible? Why are the president and attorney general not pursuing those charges.
This is Chicago, the president's home town, the town being run by his pal Rahm Emmanuel. You would think that the president would want his town to be safer.
Is it possible that there is no racial element to these killings? Possibly they are black on black crime and not worthy of an investigation. There's no way to divide the country on the basis of race if they are black on black. The only crimes worth investigating and prosecuting are perceived as racial.
To paraphrase the words of that darling of the democrats, Hillary Clinton, with all due respect, the fact is we had one dead American. Was it because of racial profiling or was it because of a guy out for a walk one night decided to go kill some American? What difference at this point does it make?
I don't know if Zimmerman killed Travon Martin in self defense or not, but the jury has decided. Let's accept that decision and start looking into all the murders of young people in Chicago even if they are the result of black on black crime. The young victims in Chicago deserve justice.
