When Spike Lee tweeted the address of a completely unrelated “Zimmerman” family, claiming that these were George Zimmerman’s parents, and encouraging people to go attack them (or worse) I was furious that no charges were brought against Mr. Lee. ( see http://articles.cnn.com/2012-03-28/justice/justice_florida-teen-spike-lee_1_apology-skittles-director-spike-lee?_s=PM:JUSTICE )

Maybe Justice will prevail for Brian Ross’ similar stunt.
