this makes my blood run cold


Almost a year ago, a man was brutally beaten and killed in rural Pennsylvania. A couple of days ago, his killers were acquitted of everything but simple assault. Of course, after reading up on the details, I can't say that it isn't what I expect of America.

The victim: a 25 year old immigrant from Mexico
The perpetrators: white high school football players
The crime: beating the guy to death while yelling racial slurs
The jury: all white

I was going to take a nap, until I read this story. Now I doubt I'll be able to sleep. Is this what we mean when we say "liberty and justice for all"? >.<
