  1. must sometimes
    look hard
    these days,
    for justice 😦

  2. Hell, yeah. At least that decision was overturned. New York State Supreme Court Justice Richard Koweek decided the Parole Board “wasn’t irrational” when it originally granted him parole. The man is 70 years old, has done his time, expressed remorse for the crime and was a model citizen in prison helping other inmates better themselves.

    People forget who usually started the incidents of violence between Black Panther members and police that often ended in death. The Panthers were hunted like criminals BEFORE committing crimes – unless you consider educating people about civil rights and providing free lunches for children and the poor as crimes (sadly, hard-core Capitalists do).
