SR: Mistrial Shows Area Fights Fair

Editorial: Mistrial shows area fights racism with fairness/Spokesman-Review

More Info: Part of the judge’s responsibility is to make sure that the evidence is delivered properly, which is why he threw a flag over the 911 tape. It probably would have been easier for Luster to let the trial go on, but that would have served no good purpose if it had continued to a verdict only to be overturned on appeal. Whichever way this trial ends, it is important not just to the parties but to the whole community. The Tankoviches and Requena all are entitled to justice. And Coeur d’Alene deserves a reputation for the impartial administration of justice.

Question: Do you sometimes get tired of the community playing fair with the various supremacist elements that continue to rare their ugly heads?
