Cartoon connecticut Martin Luther King, Zimmerman in poor taste

The July 17 political cartoon depicting Dr. Martin Luther King’s statue and lines from his “I have a Dream” along with an Hispanic George Zimmerman caricature labeled “verdict” thumbing his nose is not only inflammatory and racist, it is totally incorrect according to the trial proceedings, evidence presented, and the verdict. If the news media does not respect and support the law and the decision by due process of the law, they should at least respect and tell the truth. It appears the media may want to encourage upheaval to make more news that is felt worthy of print and improve their revenue. That in itself is reprehensive and self-serving. A more balanced view would be welcome.
