Yesterday in Houston, Black Panther leader Quanell X organized a traffic-stop protest of the "Not Guilty" verdict found in the murder trial of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed a 17 year old youth, Trayvon Martin.
I'm always a fan of a good protest but sometimes their objectives elude me. Antiwar protests may have been a Democrat sham but at least they had a stated objective. But as with the Occupy protests, the Trayvon protestors seem to be representing anger without any particular goal.
I hear they want "justice" but what exactly is that? Do they want to eliminate our trial-by-jury system and replace it with mob rule? Trial by professional, politically connected jurors perhaps? Maybe trial by media? Verdicts rendered by elected officials? Or perhaps they simply want to take away the right to plead self-defense?
And even more confusing to me? What are the people of Houston supposed to do about a verdict that was rendered in a Florida court?
