Imagine for just a moment what the media would do, or would have done, if, say, Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh had written an open letter of support to….. say,… Eric Robert Rudolph, while he was on-the-run, professing an “understanding of his feelings of hurt and pain” ?
Seriously. What do you think the media would have done with such a narrative?
Now,…. consider Jesse Jackson pens an open letter to L.A. Shooter Chris Dorner:
I understand your feelings of hurt and pain. I make this plea to you to stop spreading the pain, the hurt, and the fear. Please stop. Don’t take any more lives.
