RUSH: So the judge, the lifelong Democrat judge, her name is Nelson — she was appointed by Jeb Bush, by the way — she is now charging the jury. And, for those of you in Rio Linda, that does not mean that the jury is being arrested. It means that she’s giving them their instructions. The defense attorney in the closing arguments today brought in a slab of concrete representative of the sidewalk. It was not the actual sidewalk involved in the case. But he brought in a very sizeable, heavy chunk of concrete representing the sidewalk. It was obviously very heavy. He put it down on the floor, rubbed his hands together, and said (paraphrasing), “This is where it started, and this concrete is not just an innocent teenager with some iced tea and Skittles.”
But as you know and I know, it appears the powers that be are totally invested in a guilty verdict. The media is desperate for a guilty verdict so that they can once again proceed on the assumption that this is a racist, biased, unfair country that refuses to allow blacks to have the slightest chance to get ahead. The civil rights movement wants much the same thing. The White House wants a guilty verdict.
