Here is the 2018 update with pertinent details of incarceration in America. Each number is a person, too many of them being people whose lives are ruined due to the injustice in the justice system!   Excerpts from the Article: Can it really be true that most people in jail are being held before trial? And how much of mass incarceration is a result of the war on drugs? These questions are harder to answer than you might think, because our...

The fact is that we have an inept, rich, ignorant, dangerous, racist in our White House. As the leader of the greatest nation on earth (America still is, despite all the damage done by tRump!) his influence is world-wide. His hate-filled rhetoric and policies are responsible for countless hate crimes, race and sex crimes, and I shall not waste time arguing such an obvious point.

I have posted many articles similar to this one. It is another way – there are so many – that our criminal justice system is unfair. Tragically, the story you read hear about Ms. Tillman is the story being played out every day in America’s courts. We can smugly ignore these problems, but I implore you to join me in raising hell about it – give voice to the voiceless!  This is an excellent examination and expose of the...
