When Andrew Breitbart dropped dead in his tracks shortly before releasing a video that would cast Barack Obama in a bad light, voices on the Right immediately began to suggest a conspiracy.
“Was Breitbart murdered by sinister forces of the Left?” was the gut reaction of some.
Quiner’s Diner weighed in that we should slow down and wait for all the facts before jumping to conclusions.
With the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, voices on the Left are making the same mistake. And the media seems to be fueling the outrage that he was he shot to death by a right wing vigilante.
A case in point. Check out the photographs the mainstream media (MSM) is using of the victim in the shooting.
Look at the photo they use of the shooter.
Both are dated photos. The dated photo makes the victim look like a victim and the shooter like a thug.
The more recent photos reveal far different personas.
Quiner’s Diner views this tragedy through the prism of justice. Let’s do a thorough investigation. Let’s get the facts. Let’s get detailed eyewitness accounts of the incident.
These photos do not prove guilt or innocence.
They do demonstrate media manipulation. And that is dangerous to the cause of justice. Our condolences to the Martins on their loss.
