INJUSTICE is like a dirty murky gully of debris mixed with filth and stench we’ve become so acustomed to that we sometimes ignore its odor as it represent our only route to the other side where we need to get to.
JUSTICE is seeing the murky gully of debris and filth for what it realy is – a dreading contagious disease and move towards cleaning it up before it spread but if you can’t you make a decision to change course.
If we fail to stand up for truth, honesty and justice we might just be faced with a disappointing and devastating revelation as the one in this artwork.
We all knew from day one that Zimmerman was GUILTY. All the facts and findngs pointed to a notorious manipulator and cold blooded killer. Only the ingenoius minded professionals in charge of justice fail to see this. So the hurry-come-up ’MURDER IN THE SECOND DEGREE CHARGE’ last evening was a poor and desperate bid to conceal a shame so blatant it seemed almost unreal. The criminal they all were supporting brought them down to disgrace.
I am between feelings though that their dirty linens went flying so high for all to see. It shouldn’t have gotten to this. Was Zimmerman so untouchable, so smooth with his cover-up… his deceit?
I still don’t feel that the poor grieving Martins should opt to accept any apologies either. The one solid reason that was stalling a NOT GUILTY CHARGE for Zimmerman was the fact that these pros and cons cited riots and more chaos in the wake of that, but thank God for small miracles, Amen.
