Blind and also Mute

This is just adding to the pile, and probably to the noise. But I have to get it out of my head. I’m pretty upset about everything that’s happened in Ferguson, MO, over the past few months. I won’t mince words: a police officer murdered an unarmed teenager. That’s really all I have to say for you to figure out how I feel about it, I guess.

Then, last night, a grand jury that had been convened to decide whether this killer cop should face a trial, figured that wasn’t really necessary. The American Bar Association disagrees and wants federal charges. That maaaaaaay happen, but my growing cynacism doesn’t give me hope for a satisfactory resolution. For now, a group of 12 people have taken Justice’s blinfold and gagged her with it so she wouldn’t even have a chance to speak.
