Justice, the Imbecile

I spent all morning going down to the courthouse to be a character witness. The whole case makes me feel sad for the person who only wants to make life better for at least two people who need each other. One being a tiny boy who cannot speak for himself.

Sometimes it seems as if justice is not only blind but dumb as a bag of wet hair. It ignores the plight of the weak and unrepresented in favor of the loud, powerful, and rich. It isn't supposed to be that way, but it is. Why should it be that justice favors the liar?

Meanwhile the boy suffers. Who shall stand for him?

  1. I don't know the particulars of this situation, but it seems this is the case far too often and we are at a loss to change it.
