I’ve lived here a long time, and have grown weary at the constant silence toward
the hypocrisy and brutality of our criminal justice system that places citizens and
cops in an untenable situation. I’m glad to spout off, even when all disagree, if only to
get a conversation going about the most important government duty. I am not anti-police,
believing them to deserve a $80,000 a year starting salary, nor am I anti-prison, believing
victims of violent crimes have a right to protection.
Even so, the current state of our system is the worst taxpayer buy there is, and somebody
needs to cry in this wilderness.
