I just think President Obama could have did the most good for the innocent when he was President to speak out on the injustice, and systematic racism within the Justice system and have our conservative law makers a close up view to see how the Constitution of the United States is not given to all Americans . It has been applying to only some Americans . Imagine today is your Criminal trial date. You are one of two whites in the court, the Judge on your case give the Constitution the day off work today by simply saying the victim will not be testifying today, to say what you did or didn’t do well go with the testimony of the two police officers whom will testify you did the crime. To the victim . The victim who is there in court today also. This is a true story. Case point ☝️ you have a right to a fair trial case point ☝️ you have a right to face your accuser. The States Attorney tell your Public defender if you go with a jury and is found guilty the state will ask for more time then the 6 years Lack of ciminal history will not help you in this matter, since the case carried 6 to 30 years. Ask yourself do case point ☝️ 3 . Give you a right to a jury? This is Justice in Chicago Illinois Cook county. stand by for the verdict. Guilty. Grade K – 12 you have plagued alleged to the flag For which it stands one nation under God indivisible with Liberty and Justice for Some. True Story. I wish I was dead when this happen to me now imagine you are black like me. 19 years old..
