Kristol: No Serious Legal Person I Know Thinks that Wilson Should Be Tried

‘A lot of young Americans look at that situation and say, we shouldn’t have political correctness or the understandable anger of a community lead to a railroading of the criminal justice system’

Kristol: No Serious Legal Person I Know Thinks that Wilson Should Be Tried (RealClearPolitics)

KRISTOL: "People I know who are both prosecutors and defense attorneys think there were no grounds to indict Officer Wilson. A lot of young people -- you know, he's a young American, too. And a lot of young Americans look at that situation and say, we shouldn't have political correctness or the understandable anger of a community lead to a railroading of the criminal justice system. No serious legal person I know thinks that he should have been brought to trial, not that he behaved in an exemplary way, perhaps, as a police officer. But that's a tough job. But he has his rights, too."
