    Nothing new . . . sadly!

    Another example . . .


    Two star athletes were convicted in separate sexual assault cases, but the outcomes for them were very, very different. Brock Turner, the now-infamous white former Stanford swimmer, received a six month sentence — although it looks like he'll only serve three months — for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster on Jan. 18, 2015, when he was 20 years old. The sentencing was so light because, according to the judge, prison would have "a severe impact on him."

    All-star, black high school football player Brian Banks, with expectations of one day joining the National Football League, was accused of rape when he was 16 years old. He was tried as an adult, received more than five years in prison and another five years on parole for being a sex offender, before his accuser admitted to fabricating the allegations and all charges were dropped. His aspirations of a college scholarship or one day playing for the NFL were stolen from him.

    Justice? Hmmph! For who? The system is CORRUPT and needs to be overhauled. Come on now, we sit and debate back and forth about Trump and's the SYSTEM that allows people to do what they do. Legal, political, corporate, western religions...doesn't matter...they're all designed to oppress people and treat them differently. If not now, when? If not us, who?
