Justice and liberal agendas served

The Sun's recent editorial regarding the acquittal of George Zimmerman ("No justice," July 16) ranks up there with the one years ago where you railed on about the problem with the death penalty without once mentioning a victim or victim's family.

Anyone with common sense knows that the state had no case (this is why the district attorney did not indict and why the special prosecutor assigned did not go to the grand jury). The state held back evidence and had the judge on its side. To postulate there is "no justice" is racist in itself.

I do agree that if Trayvon Martin had killed Mr. Zimmerman, no case was there to indict him either. In that case, the media would never have brought the death to the attention of anyone outside central Florida.

All the hullabaloo is basically a liberal plot to keep racism in play in the United States. Without racism to condemn, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Rev. Al Sharpton, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus and others would lose the means to raise money for their fun. You guys play right into that. Shame on you.

    Seeking 15 minutes of fame, if all of your primary obligations are met, is fine. Does not Baltimore Council member Nick Mosby have any serious problems in his district to solve ("Councilman wants Baltimore to boycott Florida after Zimmerman trial," Aug. 9)?
