RT is Russia’s English language TV thing. And that may be why their talking head seems to be under the impression that the only way to find out what happened in the Trayvon Martin shooting is to arrest and prosecute George Zimmerman. She’s evidently unfamiliar with the fact that the cops and prosecutor who initially investigated the shooting ruled it justified self defense – rightly or wrongly – and chose not to charge him based on the evidence. Yeah, the rule of law – such as it is – works a little differently over there. Not that a CNN or MSNBC hostette would have been much better. But . . .
Steven Crowder manages to point out that he, just like everyone else in the commentariat confidently pontificating on the what they think happened, actually has no idea what went down on that dark and stormy night. OK, so Crowder isn’t exactly a ballistics expert – his explanation of the use of FMJ vs. JHP may be a tad confused – but he does what few others in the media have managed to do so far; he provides a cogent defense of the rationale behind and need for stand your ground laws. It’s worth watching for that govno-eating grin he affects at the end, too.
