Penetrating legal analysis of the Travon Martin/George Zimmerman case...

...from University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds:

Obama and the Democrats would actually prefer an acquittal [of Zimmerman, who shot Martin] here.  That’s because the whole point of the ginned-up Zimmerman affair was to inflame racial sentiment to boost black turnout in 2012.  With any luck, they can turn an acquittal into another racial rallying cry, which will help in 2014.  It’s not about Zimmerman; he’s just one of those eggs you have to break to make an Obama omelet.

Fortunately, no mention of black helicopters.
