Conservative commentator Ann Coulter appeared on the radio recently, declaring that critics of Trayvon Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman, are like a “lynch mob” and the Ku Klux Klan. Public angst over the case led some, including film director Spike Lee, to tweet addresses and phone numbers purporting to belong to George Zimmerman. “They never believed in the criminal justice system,” said Coulter without naming Lee, but bashing the Democratic Party and NBC.
