    Paul Mooney, social commentator, said in a recent interview on The Black World Today: "O.J. (Simpson) is charged with road rage for cutting off a driver. Gene Hackman decks a guy and doesn't even get arrested, and what about O.J. charged with killing his wife but Barretta (Robert Blake) does not even get arrested for taking out his."

    Man-o-man...sometimes you have to laugh at the ways "our" police officers, and judges, can manipulate the justice system for the benefit of thier 'brothers' And they think that no body recognizes what they are doing!

    Hahahahahaha

    I agree Ediversity, sometimes you have to :lol:
    to keep from exploding.:flame:....and they do really think
    we don't :look:, perhaps its because no one speaks up. :nono:
    A perfect example is that fiasco of an election last year,
    right up under our noses :sleep:.....George Bush stole the show.
    keep bringin them good topics...I like :toast:

    I was watching an episode of Judge Mathis recently and one of the people mentioned that an attorney friend of theirs "fanagled" a way for the other person to not have to do serious prison time for drug violations. The Judge stopped him in mid-sentence and went off! Asking what do you mean the attorney "fanagled," what did he do, buy off the prosector? What? So your friend is a corrupt lawyer and so is the DA? Do you think it's fair that with her history she shouldn't have gone to jail but many others, with less crimes, do immediate, long term prison time?? He said that's what is wrong with this justice system, it's not fair because she should be in prison right now, along with all those who have done less than her!

    I mean Bruh Man went OFF! :love:

    The system is so obviously unfair, but with more and more of us representing in positions of authority, positions that can make a difference ... hopefully it won't be this way for long.

    Great Topic!

    Right on!

    Destee,
    Yep, the Judge Mathis incident is another example of the injustice everywhere. Not to be a senic but, this mentality won't be turned around in our life time. Maybe some day, though. As long as those with the authority to change things keep working towards that end, we can remain hopeful. Prayer and faith won't hurt either.

    Yep

    Hey $$RICH$$,
    Yep...but if I may changed your premise just a little, okay?
    You said, "it all starts out da whitehouse work it's way down to our city's streets." Perhaps you will agree that it works it's way down to our 'homes' first, and then to our city's streets.

    I think we know this intellectually, but we should examine it's consequences in the home emotionally. That way, we give ourselfs a better chance to survive those injustices.

    The justice system is infected. It has Leprosy. Cause I can't think of nothin else worse or more accurate.:eek: :eek:

    I say " Without TRUTH. Administered in Honesty. Liberty CANNOT EXIST!" Frontier justice was shoot em in the back. Driveby same thing. Good people try to do whats right and STAND UP for it. Get
    shot for there troubles? sometimes. The fact is much to my shame I was a witness to the murder of a brother incustody of the police.
    All I could think of was they gonna kill me too:eek: :eek: They dropped the charges and I walked away. Years latter I seen the confession of the civil rights killer on tv.Knowin he's gonna die he comes clean. So maybe I should give up what I know. I contact
    "HARPO" Richs girl Oprah They want nothin to do with it. Another
    dead ******, killed by the cops. ZERO INTEREST STORY.

    So what good is she anyway? Tradein crack resipes with martha stewart???:confused: No Slides for killer cops or corrupt officials.

    tophat, I feel your despair!

    Hey, I'm not preaching. And God knows I don't know what it's like to witness someone being killed. And I hope I never have to go through such a thing! But your message, tophat, sounds stong. And that tells me that you are strong of character. That's a blessing by our creater.

    Here is a link to resources that might be of help to you to tell your story. And I agree, your story NEEDS to be told.

    Hope this helps! If I can do anything else, let me know.
