The Black Panthers and other radicals are out for vigilante justice after the tragic shooting of Trayvon Martin. According to the Constitution, Zimmerman is entitled to a fair trial. Do we have to like it? Not necessarily, but its still part of the way things work. But when The Black Panthers call for street justice, they join a disturbing trend of radical groups who have decided to cast off the rules of civil society.
During an interview with Anderson Cooper, one Black Panther said that Zimmerman has been found guilty according to "street people law".
Watch the interview below:
Glenn pointed out that the Panthers are not the only ones calling for street law. He reminded viewers that Occupy protesters have routinely said they no longer recognize authority and the police.
"Civil society must remain civil. We have to have things that bind us together," Glenn said. "This is not a Black Panther thing. This is black, white, this is everybody. You either have a set of laws or you do not."
