Mike Tyson vs. George Zimmerman

Hmmmmm…Seriously.  I’m not even sure were to start.  Apparently ear-biting-beauty-pageant-raping-convicted-felon-tattooed-face-former-heavy-weight-campion Mike Tyson felt the need to sound off on the Trayvon Martin case.  And because of his expertise in law (I’m guessing he is an expert, otherwise why would anyone care what he thought?) Yahoo news felt like it was important enough to put up on their website.

I’ll give you the highlights, Mike Tyson said,  “I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened… It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That’s the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested–the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace. That’s how I feel personally about it.”

Granted there is a TON of awesome legal analysis I omitted in those three dots.  But I think I could try shortening it more, I think I could do better, “I don’t know what happened…it’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been shot yet.”  Was that better?

Now I’m no lawyer, but I’m pretty sure when Mike Tyson said, “It’s a majority versus a minority. That’s the way God planned it” isn’t really what the founding fathers had in mind.  Mr. Tyson continued, “Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages.”

So there is no mistake, I’m not saying George Zimmerman is innocent, in fact today he made his first court appearance on a second-degree murder charge.  He could be guilty as sin.  He may have been hoping and waiting for the opportunity to kill someone.  I don’t know.  That is why we have due process.  Not the court of public opinion.  Too many people have interjected themselves into this mess.  The New Black Panthers put a million dollar bounty on Zimmerman.  Spike Lee tweeted what he thought was Zimmerman’s address to his followers, and now Mike Tyson saying it’s a disgrace Zimmerman hasn’t been shot yet.

Guilty or innocent Zimmerman’s life will never be the same.  Either way he deserves his day in court.

  1. My opinion is that the only reason this guy was arrested was due to public pressure the prosecutors office was feeling. They’ve already said they don’t have a strong case. So, this will go to court, not enough evidence to convict, he will be released on all charges, and then we will have a situation even worse than the L.A. riots of 20 years ago. Either that, or they will convict due to public pressure and Mr. Harrison will get the death penalty over something I’m not totally sure was all his fault. I’m not saying he is innocent, but I also don’t think he holds all of the guilt. And, don’t get me started on Mike Tyson, if there is anybody that deserves to spend the rest of their lives in jail, it is him. He can share a cell with O.J.

  2. Does one evil (or injustice) equal or cancel out another one? What is the difference between what Zimmerman did (for arguments sake, let’s say it WAS a hate crime), and what Tyson is saying, or what Spike Lee tweeted, or what the Black Panthers want to see done…they are ALL haters of the human race as far as I’m concerned!!! And until Zimmerman is proven guilty in a court of law (whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?) I will assume he WAS standing his ground, as was his right in the state of Florida. And if it is proven that he did indeed chase down that kid and kill him in an edrenalin induced rage, then he shall have his due…unfortunately, it will now be IMPOSSIBLE for him to EVER have justice, for if he is found innocent, he will probably be murdered if not incessantly harassed for the rest of his life. If he is found guilty, the SAME will happen to him in prison! That’s what happens when the court of public opinion prevails.

  3. I’m truthfully afraid for this country. Seriously where are the people with a logical head on their shoulders? Love your article.
