thoughts on a travesty

Not guilty. Travesty. I was in front of the television earlier on this afternoon to watch the justice system do good and put a child killer behind bars for life. It wasn't to be. Memories of the OJ verdict came flooding back immediately. That afternoon in the donut store as many skipped class to walk a couple of miles up the hill and down the block to watch, with other locals, the former football hero fry. The world was disappointed that day. As much as they are today. Since she already did 3 years, she won't be doing anymore time. But I think she will. If there is any type of human soul in that young body of hers, she will have to live with what she did for the rest of her life. Obviously, this realization would be ideal behind bars, but it ain't so. She will have to look at herself in the mirror and keep that awful secret inside her. Her soul will be destroyed and she won't be able to live with herself. That is if someone doesn't attempt to kill her first. One thing I have learned in the past four years when I became an uncle for the first time, is that mothers love is the strongest bond. And women carry that bond no matter if they have kids or not. It's something inside girls that they have and they know since birth. That bond. That love makes women able to lift cars and move mountains when it comes to the well being of a child. It's this superwomen strength that Anothony will have to watch out for. It's that women power that will lead someone to head out and try to kill Anthony. Behind bars or not, she will suffer. The justice system might not work in the good U.S. of A, but the soul will give you a life sentence. And that's the worst jail time you can ever get.
