Justice prevails. We still have a Rule of Law in this country.

Zimmerman verdict: Not Guilty.

Thank whatever gods you pray to that the jury did their duty and didn’t cave in to the pressure to “do the right thing” as defined by the race-baiters.  This case was never about race.  It was made into a racial conflict by those who profit from such conflict.

I have always been appalled at the “our side has to win for justice to be done” undercurrent in this case.   This wasn’t a sporting event; a man’s life was at stake.  As the evidence unfolded in real time for all to see, it became clear what many have suspected all along: that this was a political show trial.  An Obama-voting, half-Hispanic man was painted as a white, GOP racist who “assassinated” Trayvon Martin.  If George Zimmerman had gone by the name Jorge Zimmerman, nobody outside of his suburban community and the Seminole County police would even know who he was.  (Just as if O.J. Simpson had not been a sports star and celebrity, nobody would know or care about Orenthal the bus-driving murderer.)

We indeed have a justice system, not just a legal system.

For now.

The other day I was feeling really down while reading the news headlines.  Casey Anthony walked for murder, the GOP caved in on their pledge not to raise the debt ceiling, the ATF gun running scandal was unearthing more widespread corruption, and the Obama Administration was trying to use the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene with the planned execution of a Mexican national who had brutally raped and murdered a 16 year old girl in 1995; internationally, liberal bed wetters were crying for a stay to the execution on the basis that the long-time illegal alien (had lived here since he was 2)  was denied access to the Mexican consulate.  I’m thinking, America, what the fuck?!

Well, the execution took place as scheduled.  That evil son of a bitch will never hurt another person again in this life.   Texas basically told Mexico, the U.N. and the administration to butt out and mind their own business.  I love this state, and ideologically, it loves me.  In the words of Lyle Lovett, “that’s right, you’re not from Texas, but Texas wants you anyway.”

Humberto Leal takes the eternal celestial dirt nap. Are you hungry?  Justice is served, Baby!
