I have been watching media frenzy over alleged domestic violence by a NFL player named Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens. The liberal media on radio, television, and in the press repeats presentation of incriminating evidence nonstop. The hysteria is exhausting and they won’t back off.
The situation has escalated as other NFL players are punished without due process of law in response to unrelenting media pressure. We read that Greg Hardy of the Carolina Panthers remains benched and may not be allowed to play. These actions that intrude into the criminal justice system appear inappropriate, if not a gross violation of the prohibition against double jeopardy resulting in multiple punishments.
What’s really going on here? Are TV audiences expected to act as judge and jury in criminal cases? If so let me complain to the Judge over the abusive misconduct of the prosecution for repeated presentation of the same evidence. What does the defense have to say? Or is the defense inadmissible in cases in which the accused is tried, by the liberal media.
I thought we had a criminal justice system. Do a media-lynching trump the criminal justice system? They demanded Ray Rice be administratively punished without delay. The commissioner of the NFL was asked why the accused had not been punished already.
What’s wrong Roger Goodell? Why didn’t you ban the accused months ago? Unnamed sources are rumored to have leaked incriminating evidence to your office months ago. Or did you think you were only responsible for conduct within the NFL? The owners for not usurping the authority of the local police and the criminal justice system could fire you. And sponsors of NFL sports could reject management that ignores media convictions.
Really? Who gave the liberal media the authority to try and convict an accused sans the rule of law, rules of evidence, not to mention the presumption that an accused is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law?
Would someone please tell me what is going on? I haven’t seen American citizens treated so badly since a prostitute falsely accused the Duke lacrosse team of gang rape. The liberal media think they are above the law. Just because they routinely enforce PC norms without the force of law, they think they can take the law into their own hands.
I don’t know anything about a war on women; but Democrats have conducted a war on men for years with the full support of the liberal media. Evidently all that is required for a media lynching is a charge of male misconduct.
The time has come to hold liberal vigilantism up to the light of day and demand an accounting. If you agree that the liberal media have violated the civil rights of Ray Rice and Greg Hardy, tell them to cease and desist. Those who resort to the tactics of the Klu Klux Klan deserve to be brought to justice and rejected as un-American. The Second Amendment was never intended to sanction the call for mob justice by corrupt journalists running wild.
