Those of us in law en­forcement who have the power must seek legal ways to end this endless journey to justice not equally sought and applied when people of different colors are tried for the same offense as other preferred races. Only professionals in law enforce­ment can lead the charge for equal justice. If those law en­forcement voices are silent, the same old same old will contin­ue to exist.

You can’t just put a charge of sexual assault on any 10-year-old child, especially when their futures are on the line as adults, when evidence is contrary to the charges. Only extreme racism can be suspect­ed when minorities are consis­tently involved in unequal pun­ishment. You don’t blatantly destroy children’s chances in life because of circumstances beyond their control. Enough is enough, and quotas required to advance their careers by prosecuting attorneys who seek to add notches to their re­sumes to increase their status and salaries must cease. Prose­cuting young people who need proper guidance, and special programs to lead them into a productive life as members of society should be established. Where are the people serving in elective positions representing the best interest of all people? It’s almost non-existent ex­cept in words and not by deeds when it comes to election time. People allow injustices to exist in their various communities as business as usual. People like Quanell X are needed to expose the disparities of our criminal justice system when it comes to applying penalties to different segments of our multi-faceted society when it comes to sending people to the penal system. Like in the past, when it was legal to hang black men, well, the pen, legal docu­ments, and the constant habit of invoking horrible sentences on young misguided minority children who have no control on who their parents are, re­placed lynching. Misguided children need programs in the school system to lead them into the right direction of suc­cess. The sterilization of young black women in South Caro­lina, and the intentional injec­tions of the syphilis virus into the bodies of black men with­out their permission are repre­hensible actions by officials in charge, yet in this society, rec­ognition of their past indiscre­tions is unresponsive by those in authority to make restitu­tion. How ironic, people seek­ing equal treatment from the country they fled from, would inflict misery on others. We have Native American Indians living on reservations initiated by a people who seek to make it so by legislative laws, restrict­ing them to reservations be­cause of pure greed by people who initiated the Thanksgiving celebration; what a sad ending for them. Use your minds and not emotions to bring about a change.

 

PET PEEVE OF THE WEEK:

People who continuously have no respect for others by talking on cell phones loudly in public, especially grocery stores. No home training… Conversations are mostly un­important
