More evidence that the criminal justice system, as it is today, does not work for us.
I cannot say that I know exactly what prompted me to write about this. I respect the fact that lots of women are doing excellent advocacy, writing persuasively and causing change in some circumstances affecting women’s lives across the planet.

Stand Against Police Violence and Injustice.
History teaches, mankind repeats. All is vanity and there is nothing new under the sun. That’s pessimistic, isn’t it? But true. It is also true that white supremacy is a pernicious lie.

An educated […]
No one has the moral authority to kill another human being. Once we start from that premise and understand that capital punishment rests on a foundation of muck created by men, there’s nothing more that needs to be said.

By Leyland A. King July 7, 2017 No need be alarmed or outraged about the title.
