With the evidence not seeming to be as conclusive as public opinion in the Martin case, this is being set up for a major blow-up, in which expectations and agitation confront the legal rights of the accused.
We know what happens when there is no outlet, when a case has been so used for racial politics that a portion of the public will not accept anything less than a conviction, and where tempers have been so inflamed that flames are the result.
We may not be there yet, but if we allow the narrative to continue as it has, with the racial agitators leading the way, we may get there.
Responsible Democratic and Republican leaders should — as many have done – demand a thorough investigation in which the outcome is not prejudged, and should have the guts to stand up to the Al Sharptons of the world.
Because in the end, us darkies are nothing more than thuggish, grunting beasts who will destroy the country and kill your loved ones, folks. Best we sweep Trayvon's body under the rug before Obama and his race-hate merchants raise an army against the God-fearing whites of this great nation.
You know Jacobson here was firmly in the blowhard overpaid "legal expert" comic relief section of the Wingersphere up until now, but this is pretty much a foray into outright racist asshole territory, and he deserves to be called out on it. If an unarmed white teenager had been shot by an older black man and then claimed "Stand Your Ground" and wasn't arrested for it, it would still be an awful, senseless death, the Stand Your Ground law in Florida would still be completely ludicrous, and the crime would still be tragic in the extreme.
The difference would be that Jacobson and his buddies would be calling for the death penalty, and that the dead white teenager should have been allowed to carry his own gun, because what we really need to introduce here is easier deadly force in America.
For a man worried about rioting, that seems an odd position to take. Unless of course Jacobson is suggesting that white America needs to arm themselves more than ever.
Meanwhile, I offer this segment of Sunday's Melissa Harris-Perry Show on Stand Your Ground.
This is what we should be talking about. Not riots. Ass. And please, show where Rev. Al here is fomenting racial violence, please.
