Trayvon Martin and The Ox Bow Incident

With the Trayvon Martin case, many rules of thumb come to mind. A personal favorite, based on one particular event of long ago:

  • The first report from the field is always wrong.

And in the Martin case, many rush-to-judgment analogies from both life and the arts also come to mind:

Once inaccuracies have hardened in one’s mind, like reinforced concrete, it becomes it more difficult to extricate one’s thoughts from false “truth.” Why is that?

The solution? As in the Mississippi State killing (or any other criminal case, for that matter), let justice run its course. While the wheels of justice may move slowly, that seems to me to be far better than high-speed injustice.


About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
