  •  I don't think I can define 'Justice' anymore. (8+ / 0-)

    Given recent events here in FL, a woman (African American) with no criminal history gets 20 years for firing a warning shot into the ceiling to warn her abuser, a man (African American) gets 40 years in prison for robbing a liquor store, a man (Caucasian) gets probation for a hit and run where he left the scene and also left a motorcyclist to die on the scene and then a man (Caucasian Hispanic) gets to walk free after admittedly shooting a kid dead.

    I can't 'define' justice anymore, it's like porn: I know it when I see it, but lately here in FL, I haven't seen 'Justice' except as a picture on the milk cartons under the term 'missing'.

    Where ever she is, she's weeping under her blindfolds and tired of straining against the legal ropes that have wrangled her to submission and capture.

    Nothing changes without public pressure: public pressure doesn't happen without dissemination of knowledge and 'true' facts. Bit me FOX.

    •  In the NBA, a foul is very simply defined! (3+ / 0-)

      Whatever the referees call a foul is a foul.  What they don't call a foul is not a foul.  In the USA in the 21st Century, justice is what money can buy.

      My wife, daughter and granddaughters should have more privacy in their doctor's office than I have buying another rifle or shotgun.
