Letter: Who was on trial?
July 20, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

In his collection of race-baiting dog whistles, (letter to the editor “Rage” from the July 17 edition of the Daily Journal) John Dillon mistakenly referred to the “Trayvon Martin trial.” Trayvon Martin was the victim. George Zimmerman was on trial for Trayvon Martin’s murder.

It’s an easy mistake. From the time the crime was committed, the media has been trying Martin for his own murder, seeking any and every excuse to pin the blame on the victim, and Zimmerman’s defense team continued this throughout Zimmerman’s trial.

Daily Journal Quick Poll
 
What do you think of Cuba and the United States re-establishing diplomatic ties?

It's about time
We'll see how it goes
Makes sense
Don't like it
I guess the Cold War is over
Does this mean Cuban cigars will be cheaper now?
