Because it didn’t fit the narrative.
Regardless of however the George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin case turns out, the fact remains that racial inspired violence against Whites does in fact exist, and it doesn’t bring the mobs into the streets demanding vigilante ‘justice’. The justice system is allowed to work and the people remain hopeful for an agreeable verdict.
We did not see Whites rioting in the streets when O.J.Simpson was found not guilty for the double homicide of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Instead, people expressed their shock and amazement over the verdict and stated that justice wasn’t served.
The main issue here, for me, is the counterproductive policy of naming certain crimes as ”hate crimes”, which are as counterproductive as ”hate speech” laws. Such laws places the government as sole arbitrator on what is free (protected) speech and what is not, and the policy of distinguishing ”hate crimes” only further balkanizes society, into ”us and them”, instead of ”we the people”.
You can safely bet that most of these ridiculous laws are the brainchild of the Left, who are infatuated with race, sex and class warfare, and use them to manipulate the weary public.
