    a dead child.  The issue was black upity-ness and the fear of the loss of white skin privilege.  It was a blow towards "taking back the country!" in their eyes.  A victory for the white man over Obama.

    Justice For Will Will spent his brief, courageous life fighting for the rights we all take for granted. Please share his story to support the fight!

        the most deluded, suggestion prone, of the larger population. They are powerless, too, and they've been brainwashed as to the reason for their powerlessness.

        There are a number of reasons for why we've gotten to this place , the rise of the internet, for one, which is heavily laden with bullshit in general, but suffice to say that in every economic/national security crisis period we have seen the rise of hysterical reactionary-ism in response.

        Try not to be depressed. If we stay focused and fight hard we will overcome. I agree with KA that a lot can be accomplished if we get people to the voting booth in 2014, esp. and on a sustained basis in years to come.

        That will ultimately start showing up in statewide and countywide elections and will transform the judiciary over time as well.

        You can't make this stuff up.
