President Obama Speaks out regarding the Trayvon Martin Case

The White House Press Briefing--

President Obama in a surprise appearance during a news conference told the audience that after watching the debate over the course of last week that "I [Obama] thought it might be useful for me to expand on my thoughts a little bit."

The president commented that in a case such as this, reasonable doubt was relevant and they rendered a verdict, and that's our system works however, expressed concern about how people have responded to the verdict in how they are feeling.

"You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that could have been my son.  Another way of saying that he is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago." Pointing out that "There are very few African-American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing loss click on the doors of cars..." that has happened to me -- at least before I was a senator."

The president's comments won praise from Benjamin Todd Jealous, the president and chief executive of the NAACP, who called it a powerful moment.  "That our president has been profiled should encourage all Americans to think deeply about both the depth of this problem and how our country moves beyond it."[The Daily Caller--]

An interesting point is that reviewing the transcripts, I will give the president credit that what he said and how news services interpreting it are two different things.

but despite the "vigils" and people feeling that justice was not done by Zimmerman being acquitted, I have a few questions to ask.

#1 would we even be talking about this at all if the president had not [inappropriately] first spoke about this case on national television and continues to do so?

#2 what is Martin had actually killed Zimmerman when he was beating Zimmerman's head against the concrete, would we still feel the same way?

#3 our justice system whether you approve of the verdict or not has ruled in Zimmerman's favor.  Do you agree with Eric Holder contacting the NAACP and wanting to now go after Zimmerman for civil charges?

#4 do you agree or disagree that the media was biased on this case?
