CNN suddenly claims that it is odd that so many are interested in the Zimmerman trial


This is odd, because FBI statistics show there are about 13,000 murders annually; people shot, stabbed, beaten, run down with cars and thrown off of balconies; 13,000 times that we could get interested, get involved and pass public judgment. So what is it about this lone killing that has inflamed passions to such a degree? – CNN on July 5th, 2013

Between February 26th and March 19th, CNN aired 41 different news segments on the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman self-defense shooting. Many of these segments were 100% fantasy. They were off on George Zimmerman’s weight be almost 100 pounds. They were wrong about George Zimmerman’s heritage. They were wrong about the racial makeup of the neighborhoods. The aired very old pictures of Trayvon to make him look like a twelve year old.

The list of false characterizations and blatant falsehoods reported by CNN goes on and on and on some more.

When the jury emerges from deliberations days or weeks from now to render its verdict in that Florida courtroom, when the family of Trayvon Martin leans forward in breathless anticipation and when George Zimmerman stands to hear his fate, you can bet your Disney vacation the whole affair will end badly.

Not because Zimmerman, on trial in the shooting death of Martin, will be found guilty or not guilty, but because millions of Americans have already made up their minds about what should happen. Large swaths of people are going to be disappointed no matter how the verdict falls. Probably more like outraged.

This is odd, because FBI statistics show there are about 13,000 murders annually; people shot, stabbed, beaten, run down with cars and thrown off of balconies; 13,000 times that we could get interested, get involved and pass public judgment. So what is it about this lone killing that has inflamed passions to such a degree?

At Georgetown University in the offices of history and African-American studies, associate professor Maurice Jackson has an answer. At 60, he is old enough to have lived through the glory days of the civil rights movement and young enough to still fear for his own son’s life in a dangerous world.
