I agree with you, Issodhos. My gut reaction is to want to throw Zimmermann over a cliff into a sea of excrement, but my intellectual drive to avoid a "rush to judgment" (because that velocity is so quintessentially American?) is stronger.

First, to the best of our ability, we should gather all the facts -- then judge. Moreover, because of all the emotional muddle this case has generated, it may, in fact, prevent a proper trial and permit the perpetrator to avoid just punishment.

UH-OH !!

That is usually the infallible sign that truth is going to be covered up.

I don't know what the hell you're talking about, NW. The only posting I have made that referenced you was one in which I gave you a tip-of-the-hat for seeking to find out more about what happened.

Issodhos
as that I was hanging him out to dry, not that I was searching out more info. I sincerely regret my outburst. I've been too quick to temper of late, and that is not like me.

LT, I wonder why there isn't a thread here regarding the mayhem - 10 dead, 46 wounded - in "SYG-Free" Chicago last week ? Where's the MSM "'blitz" on the Windy City wars ? Why isn't the President commenting on some possible "sons" there ?

Instead we have the makings of another Ox-Bow Incident fueled by the rantings of race-baiting opportunistic shysters, the usual acronymic conglomeration of anti gun orgs - all of which, BTW, have apparently declined to respond to questions from conservative members of the firearms community - compounded by the knee-jerk reactions of the lame stream media. Even our President (apparently having leaned nothing from the Brooks incident ) has weighed in with his patented inane commentary !

All of this pretty much guarantees the shooter can't be tried anywhere ! And perhaps that is the "objective" ! An administration teetering on the brink having its chief LEO being indicted for contempt, (with possible criminal proceedings for key players across the gamut of enforcement agencies ) mist be in desperate need of a diversion . Even better one involving the possible misuse of a firearm. Now only if the Oval Office/MSM/Hoplophobes were as outraged over some 300 Mexican national's deaths ! >Mech

Went right over my head. Are you posting in Ukrainian and then having the computer translate into English? Hmm

I think, LT, going "over" your head implies a quality that isn't readily apparent. Talking past, nonsequiturial, perhaps. Over? Don't think so.
