The Trayvon Martin Case and the Rule of Law

The Trayvon Martin Case and the Rule of Law.

“The most unfortunate aspect of this lapse is that prominent political figures who certainly must know better have embraced this mob mentality. President Obama, a Harvard-trained lawyer and former lecturer on constitutional law at the University of Chicago, offers perhaps the most egregious example of this “who needs tedious legal proceedings to achieve justice now?” mentality. He could have used his position to tell — perhaps even lecture — the American public that Martin’s shooting had already been investigated by the police and that this process had numerous safeguards to insure that criminal acts were properly punished and that personal opinions about guilt or innocence should wait until all the relevant information is at hand.”

Once again, a lack of leadership and disrespecting our rule of law (i.e Constitution).
