WHEW FINNALLY some sort of Justice not JUST US laws for one race only..
After the injustice in the Jena 6 case, Mychal Bell being placed back in Jail
The injustice in Megan Williams case(she is the girl from W. VA forced to eat human feces, raped, and stabbed)
The injustice in Florida's - Federal officials to review boot camp death case - Martin Lee Anderson 14 kicked to death the guards and the nurse were found NOT GUILTY by all white jury in 90 minutes!!
The injustice in the 15 yo Girl from Calif whose arm was broken by School Security because she dropped some cake. Click to see the video Guard actually breaks the arm on video!
The injustice in DC with the unarmed 14yo boy shot in the back of the head by police in Sept - http://www.washingtonpost.com/wpdyn/content/article/2007/10/23/AR2007102302783.html?hpid=topnews
After all these injustices that just happened in the last 4 months, it feels good that some sort of Justice prevailed. I am strongly advocating for us to direct our kids to become LAWYERS we must pick up the mantle where the GREAT Lawyers of 40 years ago left off.
Additionally as tax paying citizens we also must:
1. Start to read our counties bylaws regarding hate crimes, our state laws regarding hate crimes and the federal statues regarding hate crimes.
2. Start to watch and research the Judges up for election. Yes we must vote but more importantly we must vote locally and let the candidates for election know that we know them and we voted for them. Make an appointment to see them after they are elected EVEN if you didn't vote for them THEY SERVE US.
3. WATCH carefully the police unions and associations. The local city police unions, the state police union and the county sheriff union - the Police Benevolent Association and Detective Benevolent Association and the state Police Benevolent Association are all against CIVILIAN Complaint REVIEW BOARDS. In NYC we were able to get one but it has no subpoena power and has no real legal power but yet the PBA and DBA both marched and protested and RIOTED against the forming of this bogus REVIEW BOARD. in fact Rudy Giuliani led the riot – http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E0CE6DD1F3CF934A1575AC0A964958260.
It appears that the police believe that they are in charge of us not vice versa. So we must change that perception. Additionally if we are to truly fight against this POLICE BRUTALITY we must sue the police union for fostering this kind of behavior and allowing their member to SHOOT FIRST and ASK QUESTIONS later.
4. Lastly these new 'GUN LAWS' are being pushed heavily by the Mayors of America but we need to read and REREAD these laws they are the new form of CRACK DRUG LAW. Again it is the LEGAL and LEGISLATIVE legal FINE PRINT that we must be on guard against.
Government should be afraid of its citizens not the Citizens afraid of their own Govenment!

Court frees youth in Ga. sex case
Young man in Ga. had been sentenced to 10 years for act with fellow teen
The Associated Press
Updated: 11:18 a.m. ET Oct 26, 2007
ATLANTA - Georgia's Supreme Court on Friday ordered the release of a young man who has been imprisoned for more than two years for having consensual oral sex with another teenager.
The court ruled 4-3 that Genarlow Wilson's 10-year sentence was cruel and unusual punishment. Wilson, 21, was convicted of aggravated child molestation following a 2003 New Year's Eve party at a Douglas County hotel room where he was videotaped having oral sex with a 15-year-old girl. He was 17 at the time.
Wilson was acquitted of raping another 17-year-old girl at the party.
The 1995 law Wilson violated was changed in 2006 to make oral sex between teens close in age a misdemeanor, similar to the law regarding teen sexual intercourse. But the state Supreme Court later upheld a lower court's ruling which said that the 2006 law could not be applied retroactively.
Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears wrote in the majority opinion that the changes in the law "represent a seismic shift in the legislature's view of the gravity of oral sex between two willing teenage participants."
Sears wrote that the severe punishment makes "no measurable contribution to acceptable goals of punishment" and that Wilson's crime did not rise to the "level of adults who prey on children."
'Grave miscarriage of justice'
The state Supreme Court had turned down Wilson's appeal of his conviction and sentence, but the justices agreed to hear the state's appeal of a Monroe County judge's decision to reduce Wilson's sentence to 12 months and free him. That judge had called the 10-year sentence a "grave miscarriage of justice."
Dissenting justices wrote that the state Legislature expressly stated that the 2006 change in the law was not intended to affect any crime prior to that date.
They said Wilson's sentence could not be cruel and unusual because the state Legislature decided that Wilson could not benefit from subsequent laws reducing the severity of the crime from a felony to a misdemeanor.
They called the decision an "unprecedented disregard for the General Assembly's constitutional authority."
A spokeswoman for Wilson's lawyer said his legal team received no advance notice of the decision.
