91. the point is trial by media

the media, other than inaccurately described the SYG law, NBC doctored the 911 tapes, etc. Oh yeah, why does his media photos show him lighter than he actually is? Use police photo of low quality mug shot camera or photo "burning"? In OJ, they used "dodging" to make OJ's skin look darker than it actually is.
I don't think Jewel was so much "acting like a hero" as he was being a responsible member of the community. Unless you think the civilized and responsible thing for him to leave the bomb sitting there. He found the bomb. He told the cops about it. In fact, he was doing his fucking job as a security guard employed by the college. So, he was not some "Billy Bob trying to be a hero".

I was using him and Casey Anthony as examples of trial by media.

I tend to think the media did that to Zimmerman. They certainly did that to the Florida law.
