Trial By Television

I didn’t watch the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, but I did read a few headlines about it and of course now I am in overload listening to and reading headlines about this so called unfair trial. The only reason it was unfair is because the people who on the spot proclaimed this young man guilty wanted to see him hang. By their demonstrations they telegraph a message to America that they do not believe our system of justice works. They do not believe the jury was being fair, because they are all racist. I don’t even know if any of the people that were killed in the protest that caused this ruckus were of color. The people protesting don’t believe that this system based on a jury of your peers works. Neither do they believe that the jury must make their decision on the basis of two things, the law, and the evidence presented. The jury cannot make a decision based on a video shown on NBC news or CNN, they can’t make their decision based on news reports published in news papers. They must adhere to that which is presented by lawyers to the jury during the trial, and that the lawyers must adhere to very strict rules in how they can present their case. The judge is there as a referee to make sure every one plays by the rules.

Our unifying president who swore upon his mother’s grave to bring unity to the country has not moved one millimeter towards unifying the country. Instead he prefers to add fuel to the fire. At another time and with another unifying president I remember an incident when a white policeman was ridiculed by President Obama because he did his job and challenged a black college professor that the cop caught breaking into a house. It turned out to be the professor’s home and he had locked himself out. In a move to unify the country Obama reacted by making an insulting comment about the white cops racist action. Eventually, all the facts came out, and we learned that the cop did not know it was the man’s house, the cop did not know the man he caught was a college professor, the cop knew only that he was called to check out a break in. The newspapers had a field day crucifying the policeman and covering for Obama’s too quick reactionary response. The whole thing was papered over by the cop sitting down with Obama over a beer, but only after the news media went over board decrying that America is a racist country.

As long as there are many races of different colors racism will be an issue. It would be nice if we could as a country have a do-over on the matter of slavery. It might be a little bit easier. As it is, leveling out the race issue will take at least two more centuries.
