Justice?

In the US, there are 2,270 prisoners who were sentenced as children to life without parole. They will die behind bars. On June 21, 1964, three civil rights workers disappeared in Philadelphia, Miss. Their bodies were found buried in an earthen dam six weeks later. Eight members of the Ku Klux Klan went to prison on federal conspiracy charges; none served more than six years.

    Once you open that can a bit wider you will find thousands of more worms in it. Racism, The War On Drugs, and politics (elected officials) have created a bizarre (and deeply entrenched) system of injustice in America.
