MacDonald signed a contract giving McGinniss exclusive rights to his life story, and so McGinniss was given unprecedented access to the defense team – living with them, working with them, eating with them. But when the guilty verdict came down, McGinniss did a one-eighty on them. Apparently, falsely convicted men don’t make for good books. McGinniss decided it was a better story to agree with the jury. MacDonald wasn’t a sympathetic figure. He did himself no favors with some media appearances. So, McGinniss went about writing a book that would convince people the government got the right verdict and we could all pat ourselves on the back and leave Jeffrey MacDonald to rot in his jail cell till Judgment Day.
Amazing story. Go read. You can come back here tomorrow.
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?
