After the recent verdict in the murder/assault trial of Jose Zarate, people should be hesitant to visit “sanctuary” cities. Justice was not blind in this case, but highly political. Just like in the O. J. Simpson trial, this jury did not discharge its constitutional duty and instead ignored facts and evidence.
When laws are broken, people can die. When governments become lawless, society can die. If individuals, alone or in government, can determine which laws are moral or fair or universal, then the underlying foundation of the republic is threatened and everyone’s protection is forfeited.
