NBC issues apology for editing the Zimmerman 911 tape

Good. One thing I’ve always wanted to impress upon people, both to the left and the right, is that the phrase “the ends justify the means” does not apply. Besides, in this case, it undermines the fact that what we’re looking for isn’t for “George Zimmerman to be punished”, but rather for the normal fair trial to simply occur. Even Al Sharpton’s said as much.

  1. I don’t want a fair trial for Zimmerman — I want due process.  And if due process says no trial is warranted, then we’re done.

    But this is a good opportunity to reflect on what we’ve heard from NBC.  Because the people who are actually processing this aren’t getting their information from those sources.  They’re sifting through facts and witness accounts, and it’s entirely possible that Martin’s shooting was completely justified.
