Here’s Why The Zimmerman Verdict Matters

What does the George Zimmerman Verdict really mean? Putting aside the racial aspect for a moment, there is a much greater impact from the Zimmerman verdict. Due to the Stand Your Ground laws in Florida and other states, it is increasingly common for an armed man to shoot and kill an unarmed person and go free without ever standing trial. Local prosecutors complain that it’s far more difficult to file charges against shooting suspects because the law says they only have to claim they felt “threatened” by their victim to justify the shooting. If the only other person involved in…

Ten Reasons Why You Should not Support the NRA

1. The NRA is a terrorist’s best friend.   Technology is making it increasingly possible to manufacture handguns made primarily of plastic and other non-metal materials which cannot be discovered by metal detectors. This gun would be a terrorist’s dream but a nightmare for airport security. In the 1980s Ronald Reagan’s Attorney General proposed a ban on the manufacture of plastic guns, but the NRA opposed this legislation and it was withdrawn.  Over the years, similar attempts to prohibit the manufacture of plastic guns have been killed by the NRA. Of course, no law-abiding person needs a handgun that can evade…

Hugo the Grey

 “Once you label me you negate me.” Soren Kierkegaard Often times in learning history there is a bias towards the good someone did that made them celebrated or the bad that they did that made them vilified, mostly because we want to educate on what examples to follow and what not to follow. This one sided story usually originates from the victors who write history. We could see it happening in real time with Hugo Chavez as he gives a great example of what to do and what not to do. Looking at historical figures as either “good” or “bad”…

Something the NRA Doesn’t Want You to Know

Before the recent series of mass-shootings, the common wisdom in political circles was that the American people really didn’t want any new gun control laws and wouldn’t support any new efforts to enact them. The truth is, with all the other major issues our country has dealt with in recent years, gun control was certainly a low priority. While most Americans oppose an outright ban on all guns, the support for other gun control measures has been pretty steady since they started taking opinion polls in the 1930s. While not a complete list of all opinion polls conducted on the…

Where is the Justice?

On January 17, 2013 Parrish Bennette, Jr. accepted  a plea deal of 18 years for manslaughter in the death of 14 year old Yashanee Vaughn. Originally charged with murder, Bennette who was 16 at the time of the crime, faced a sentence of 25 years if convicted. In the twists and turns of the case, the location of the victim’s body was not revealed for 4 months; the assumption was that the defendant was not revealing this information. This situation further highlighted the anguish of both families. One family waiting for word on the location of their daughter’s body, pleading…
