Quick Hit: Justice Fatigue

In reading the story of the suspect arrested in the JonBenet Ramsey murder case in yesterday’s L.A. Times I turn to the inside and find a picture of a woman placing a note at the Georgia burial place of JonBenet’s mom Patsy (who died in June of this year from ovarian cancer). The note reportedly reads “Dearest Patsy, Justice has come. Rest in peace.”

I know I’ve beaten the dead horse before on this point, but exactly what justice has come lady? An ARREST has been made of a SUSPECT who is INNOCENT of the charges until PROVEN GUILTY by a jury of peers in a court of law — not by you at the gravesite of the bereaved and deceased mother.

Justice may very well be on its way lady, but it ain’t here yet. And your ignorance, won’t move it here any faster.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
