Land of the Free

They say that times have changed. They tell us that It Will Get Better. But America continues to have not only a race problem, but a gun problem. We arm ourselves, to defend ourselves, from attacks that are often imaginary. This countries justice system was put in place to bring criminals to justice. But how many times have we seen that system backfire? Is it race? Or is it America’s constant support of guns that has lead us to a “not guilty” verdict this time? Or, is it both?

Regardless.

Someone is dead. And the person who killed them is walking free.

That is not justice. Our system has failed. And a murderer with a penchant for walking the streets at night with a loaded gun, is free to do just that.
