Let Law Enforcement do its Job

Thinking Right

April 2012

            First, may I be among the first to say, “Happy Easter,” remembering the triumphant resurrection of our Redeemer.  Our lives and future are bright only because He lives today!

Like almost every other person who writes occasionally for public consumption, I want to take a look at the Trayvon Martin media circus in Sanford, FL.  I am an unashamed, unabashed supporter of the Second amendment as it is written in our Constitution and fully support our Florida “Stand Your Ground” legislation.  If an intruder enters my house, car, or my personal space on the street threatening me or expressing threats of harm against me or those who accompany me I have every Biblical right to defend myself and my family or friends.  How this enters into the Zimmerman-Martin case I am not sure.  I seriously doubt it applies in this case.  It is being used as a flimsy excuse to enflame the followers of the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, the agitators who accused members of the Duke University Lacrosse Team for rape, when the facts and evidence brought acquittals in every trial.  Sharpton was also involved in the Tawana Brawley alleged rape case, even accusing Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones of raping the young woman and being racist, even when the hospital where Brawley was treated stated there was no evidence of rape or sexual molestation.  Now the Black Panther organization has been incited by these various so-called community leaders to issue a ‘Dead or Alive’ bounty on George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin.  Mr. Obama is justly proud of his heritage, being the son of a Kenyan Father and White woman from Kansas.  George Zimmerman, who is being accused of Trayvon’s murder, is a man of Hispanic, Mexican descent with only one white parent

Is this the way to carry on a reasoned response to what the Black Community sees as an affront?  An affront by what racial group?  Every Citizen of the United States is first of all an American and secondly identifying ourselves as to in what area of the world our forbearers lived.  If people do not consider their American citizenship as paramount, go back to where you came from.  The shooting must, and is, being investigated by Peace Officers from Florida Department of Law Enforcement and others from jurisdictions other than Sanford.

Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Spike Lee (who published Zimmerman’s address and phone number,) and Barak (My son could look just like Trayvon) Obama should stop trying to make political/personal points out of this and let a thorough investigation tell us what went on.  To escalate racial tensions as these men have done is irrational and self-serving.  If Zimmerman is killed or severely injured as some groups have promised, these men should be prosecuted as accessories to the crime.  Recent reports and evidence seem to indicate a confrontation between the two, with Zimmerman receiving bruises and a broken nose.  One death is bad enough; we don’t need an escalating number of vigilante killings because of professional race-baiters.  Mr. Zimmerman is Hispanic, and no more Caucasian than Barak Obama, and if Zimmerman suffers harm, who will demonstrate in response to his death?  Let Law Enforcement do its job and support them in their decision.

I’m Vance and I’m Thinking Right.
