Welcome to a special live addition of Huckabee.
George Zimmerman was found not guilty last night by a jury of six women who heard evidence were instructed as to the law enacted with clarity.
Now they're not heroes.
They're just citizens doing one of the most difficult and thankless task that any American has ever called upon to perform.
Judging the guilt or innocence of another human being.
George Zimmerman is not a hero he was a young Hispanic man.
He believed he was in danger and he used a gun to it and what he felt was a threat to his own life.
Now he's gonna spend the rest of his life second guessing his decision to get out of the car to -- -- young man that he thought might be part of a crime wave in his neighborhood.
And trade on -- is not a hero.
He was a young man whose life ended way too soon may be because he decided to confront a man he believed was showing -- disrespect.
Even if one believes the jury got it right with a not guilty verdict.
There's no reason for high fighting and back slapping because it was a tragedy for all involved.
Despite the screams of Al Sharpton who sees racism and everything and who claim the verdict was a slap in the face of justice.
This was in fact justice.
As it was designed under our constitution.
Justice doesn't mean perfection.
Or even write.
It means we're reminded that we are a nation of laws not man.
A nation with imperfect the legislators who write those laws reflecting our collective moral code.
And then loss which are enforced by a separate branch of government.
And when believed to be broken.
Are submitted to yet a third branch of government to try to resolve where -- the laws were broken and even whether they were just -- But resigned.
We have chosen to put the burden of proof on the accuser in the prosecutor.
And to presume the -- said the accused.
Unless he or she is proven guilty.
Beyond a reasonable doubt.
-- Franklin borrowing from the English jurist William Blackstone said.
Better that 100 guilty person should escape than one innocent suffer.
And that's reflected in our system being weighted in favor of the accused.
Well if there are no heroes.
Here are some -- The media deserves to be excoriated.
For their role in inventing many parts of the narrative before the facts and evidence -- even present it.
Thank god the press is not a true fourth branch of government.
They emphasized a race factor because -- -- -- was black.
But they were blatantly dishonest and not acknowledging that George Zimmerman was Hispanic.
Now should they claim bodies only half Hispanic.
Then they got to be equally honest in saying that our president Barack Obama is only half black and that if he had a son.
He really wouldn't look like traded on Martin.
The facts in the case is presented in the court on the -- for far different than the heated comments that we're spewed by Al Sharpton and others who called.
More attention to themselves.
Than they did to the tragedy.
Now with the march needs to happen.
If you don't happen in Chicago where the murder rate for young black males leads the nation.
Almost one half of the nation's murder victims are black and a majority of them are between the ages of seventeen and 29.
Black people account for just over 13% of the US population.
They were the victims of almost 50% of all the murders.
Of black murder victims were killed by other black people.
We don't have a race problem so much as we have a grace problem.
Our culture declares that people are expendable and disposable.
We treat others with course and harsh content and then we act shocked at the murder rate.
We don't need -- race summit we need a grace summit.
And god is still -- the grace business.
