On March 24 a “KillZimmerman” Twitter account began publishing calls for violence against George Zimmerman, the self-appointed neighborhood watch captain who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26.
Five days later, the account is still on its crusade to avenge Martin.
The sender’s initial tweets made his or her aims clear: “No Justice No Peace!!!!!!!!!! #KILLZIMMERMAN #KILLZIMMERMAN #KILLZIMMERMAN,” they read.

This is a problem.
Yesterday there was a post over at Althouse about how someone had taken a poll about the Martin/Zimmerman issue. A Poll!! We do NOT use POLLS to determine if someone is innocent or guilty!!
We are a nation of laws. Our system is not perfect; but it does work.
And where is the MSM on this? Where’s the left on this?
When Gabrielle Giffords was shot the MSM & the left were everywhere jumping up-and-down that it was all Sarah Palin’s fault. Palin — love her or hate her — never, in any way, called for Giffords to be killed.
Here, this person is actually publicly calling for the assassination of another person. Somehow that’s acceptable? Is this really who we’ve become?
