Instant Justice for Sociopaths – race card not played

This is an outstanding piece in the Patriot Post. Contrast the approach used by the wise district attorney in North Carolina with the political theater of the Martin/Zimmerman case in Florida. Which approach best serves justice as guaranteed by our constitution?

Remember that the statue of justice features the blindfold “indicating that justice is (or should be) meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of identity, money, power, or weakness.” This is commensurate with the Bible, where God instructs us in Leviticus 19:15: ““You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.”

Things here in Virginia are a bit different than Florida. Here, the commonwealth has no legal power to interfere in a local police investigation. That can cut two ways, obviously, but it does prevent the political grandstanding we’re seeing in Florida with a state attorney interfering in a local criminal investigation.

Along with Mark Alexander, I wonder if Obama has sons, if they’d look like Maurice Skinner and Diego Everette.
