These are our elected representatives, the people that run our country. It's a veiled threat, nothing short. How have we fallen so far as a country of Laws, that our politicians are calling the shots in police matters from their bully pulpits in Washington?! It is disgusting, disgraceful, and there should be ethics charges filed on each one of them who dare to try to influence this case in any way.

At a Congressional forum on the Hill yesterday at which killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin’s parents were asked to testify, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) took center stage. She claimed first that Martin had been victimized by racial profiling and a “botched police investigation.” But she went even further: George Zimmerman, the shooter in the case, she said, should be arrested “immediately for his own safety.”

This has become a rallying cry for other members of the left. Michael Eric Dyson, professor of sociology at Georgetown University, said on MSNBC several days ago that Zimmerman should be “for his own safety, let’s just go to the ultimate extreme, for your safety, Mr. Zimmerman, because people may want to execute vigilante justice against you, we want to protect you, we want to put you in jail, we want to put you under cover of the law. Nothing is reasonable here to suggest that Mr. Zimmerman should continue to go free.”http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/03/28/Democratic-Congresswoman-Arrest-Zimmerman

Yeah, and half of Congress has no idea what due process means either.

In 2001 it was around 85%:The [Patriot] Act was passed in the House by 357 to 66 (of 435) and in the Senate by 98 to 1 and was supported by members of both the Republican and Democratic parties.You think it's gotten that much better since then?

Maybe the Congresswoman should be arrested for the safety of the American public.

Congress is becoming somewhat less credible, and more replete with a bizarre and overacting cast of characters, than World Wrestling Entertainment.

Rep. Wilson should review American history. Prominent members of her own demographic grouping were once "arrested" to "protect them from retribution" by those who expressed threats against them.

I guess if liberal politicans were locked up for their own safety, the idiot at the Safeway in Arizona wouldn't have a target for his insanity?
