The Good Guys Don’t Wear Badges (Part 1)

By DKIdea, published on Feb 15, 2014

...such excessive injuries. Kelly Thomas committed no crime and should have simply been told to go about his business. But because the good guys don’t wear badges anymore, just the sanctioned criminals, Thomas was killed when he could have either been freed or arrested.

There needs to be justice for Kelly Thomas. Every cop involved that decided to depart from their training in favor of murder needs to be held accountable. The only people that can make that happen are the good people that recognize the criminality of these cops. Keep asking yourself the obvious questions, no matter how ... (more)

Nobody but the Brave

By Caballero_69, published on Aug 24, 2013

...what I had long so ago, but don’t have any more Just waiting to see it come life again and see you walking through my door That’s a pearl I imagine holding my hand It reminds me of hopes I once held when I believed we had a chance To wake this nation from its trance And watch the tides of justice stream Carrying with them the hopes, the joys, the dream

Now again tonight I see the faces of my old friends Caught in a game they've got no chance to win Getting beat, going in retreat and coming back to try again Until their spirit fails or their heart gives in

Now who is it... (more)

Stand for Justice

By Caballero_69, published on Jul 27, 2013

Where justice is denied,

Ignorance and enmity prevail.

Where one group is oppressed,

Every group must face travail.

Many yearn for peace

With a pure and sincere desire

But unless they also fight for justice

True peace has no chance to transpire.

When the presumptions of some

Degrade or malign any

People and their property are endangered,

Be they the few or the many.

Where a youth is wrongly suspected

Bigotry runs wild.

When a vigilante pulls the trigger,

He executes a child.

When... (more)

Three Edged Sword: Trayvon & George

By DKIdea, published on Jul 21, 2013

I’ve read and heard a lot about the Trayvon Martin tragedy and thought long about my personal position on the matter. I understand that emotions are running high on both sides of the equation, but if reason doesn’t rule the day, then we learn nothing from all of this and are doomed to repeat the cycle. There is a 17 year old young man dead. We must ask why and assign some culpability, once we have the answer.

We should use the power of reason to uncover the exact moment, the very beginning of wrongdoing, that set in motion the chain of events leading to death.

Where do we begin?

The Madness and Malice of Bombers

By Caballero_69, published on Apr 18, 2013

...energy will now be expended by trained investigators.

All possibilities will be evaluated and no stone will go unturned.

Resolute professionals rush to diligently engage in exhaustive study.

Analysis, not paralysis is the order the moment; let it unfold.

The mill of justice will grind exceedingly fine, but it will grind.

Overcome any urge to leap to conclusions or rashly blame anyone.

Now let justice be done though the heavens tremble and hysteria howls!

Bombers are villains not heroes; they kill indiscriminately with stealth.

Only... (more)

On Sexual and Political Etiquette

By Anastasia , published on Aug 26, 2012

...set to spirit him away to the United States.

There is only one thing wrong with this scenario: Washington has not asked for his extradition. Sweden has, something he neglected to mention to the swooning multitudes across the street. He is wanted not because he is “making a stand for justice”, as he put it, but to answer charges of rape and sexual assault. He spent a good bit of the past two years fighting extradition in the British courts. It was only when his case failed that he jumped bail and took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy.

Why Ecuador? I really don’t... (more)

Holier Than Thou

By Anastasia , published on May 31, 2012

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the only man ever convicted of the Lockerbie bombing, one of the worst acts of mass murder in British history, died earlier this month at his home in Tripoli. He died a free man. He died three years after Kenny MacAskill, the wholly ridiculous Scottish Justice Secretary, announced to the world that he was to be released on 'compassionate' grounds, having only three months to live.

It was a decision taken, I understand, on the 'best medical advice' available at the time. This goes to prove one thing: the Libyan medical service is clearly ten times better than... (more)

An Unjust Justice

By MUGISHO N.THEOPHILE, published on Sep 22, 2011

...death chamber, TD repeated to MacPhail’s relatives that he never killed anybody, therefore not responsible for his 1989 slaying.

TD was declared dead at 11:08 p.m. The lethal injection began about 15 minutes earlier, after the Supreme Court rejected an 11th-hour request for a stay. "Justice has been served for Officer Mark MacPhail and his family," state Attorney General Sam Olens said in a statement. Truly speaking this is injustice, this is shame to the US, a nation that is believed to be civilised, but still slaughtering people as animals disregarding their innocence.

Patriotically Speaking

By Caballero_69, published on Aug 11, 2011

...speaks casually about secession, he disqualifies himself for the presidency. When Congressional committee chairs attack American citizens due to their religious faith, they dishonor their office and deserve to be exposed. Call upon all Americans to defend the noble ideals of liberty, equality, justice and prosperity for all. Remind us of who we are and about what we should care most. As Republicans seek to slice and dice the populace into groups then can play off against one another in pursuit of electoral victory, emphasize their disservice to the Constitution they have sworn an oath to... (more)

How would patriots act in the face of a debt and deficit crisis? In 1783, George Washington called on the country to pay its bills as a matter of justice and honesty. He stressed that default on the country's obligations would undermine its ability to borrow and cast it into disrepute. According to Washington, "We [the United States] have it in our power to be one of the most respectable Nations upon Earth." He believed, "nobody could deny... (more)
