In one of the best Afterburners in a while (1), Bill Whittle looks at the trial of George Zimmerman for killing Trayvon Martin and proclaims it nothing less than one of the great civil rights violations of our time — a violation of Zimmerman’s rights:
This information about Martin’s use of “Lean” and its side-effects (paranoia, physical aggressiveness) is new to me. That the judge barred the evidence is flabbergasting, as it bears directly on Martin’s state of mind that night. Remember, he had lost Zimmerman, got to his destination, and then went back to confront Zimmerman at his truck. And yet Martin using a drug that could lead to this kind of behavior wasn’t ruled admissible?
(1) Which, if you recall my liking of this series, is a pretty high bar.
