Passed along in email was this blog post about the disconnect between judicial penalties meted out to a bank that admitted it laundered drug money and the man (frequently black) on the street who is found to possess either a lot of cash or a bit of marijuana or both.
"The war on drugs" has taken on a twisted and corrupt meaning.
"Justice" is a word of diminishing -- if not diminished -- substance.
And yet, when the poor want some help it's touted as starting a class war.ReplyDelete
These days it's not "The poor" anymore.... we're all "Poor" except for the top 10% or so.... Better to say "Poor people".... folks like us!!!!ReplyDelete
