When There is No Justice, There Are Tears Without End

Today I am charged with writing something about my best friend.  This is the hardest post I ever had to write. Why? Because she is dead. She has been dead for years, but in high school she was my best friend. She knew everything about me and never shared it with anyone.  To this day I  still wonder why her killers got off with only a 7 year sentence when it was clearly premeditated murder. Had I been able to attend the trial,  I would have raised hell to the media about how HER character was put on trial rather than the actions of the bitch that pumped the bullets into her body.  She was lured out to a desolate road, shot and left for dead. The last conversation I had with her, we talked about my boys and such. Then she said she had to go to meet someone. That was the last time we ever spoke.

So what ended up happening? To make a long story short, they didn’t find the deposit. I guess they were high on drugs or something because they tore the rest of the car apart looking for it from what I am told. So what is there to say? My memories were of good, clean juvenile fun we had and a few in-depth discussions. Ironically I never met her father until well after she died.  She and I would talk for hours on the phone just BS’ing.  He remembered that. I remember the pain in his eyes. I remember seeing his tears fall as he relayed to me his thoughts about losing his only daughter.  Losing a child is a pain I can relate to, only I lost mine due to troubled pregnancies.

And as my eyes are now welling up, I can say no more–except this and that hope she is at peace, even though she got NO justice. Here is part of a song I wrote for her…Her name is Leslie.

“Childhood Friend”

“..Childhood Friend…Why have you gone out to play in all the rain, again?

Leaving me alone, your memory to defend to the end.

God it hurts so bad but I miss my childhood friend…”

I cannot write anymore.  I still miss her after all these years. I guess you can tell just from what I wrote above where the 2nd line came from…But she is dead and cannot defend herself. The person I knew is not the one the defense lawyer for these murderers tried to portray. That I do know and will go to my grave knowing it. I can tell you this…Not once did she ever try to offer me drugs of any kind–which is what the defense for these ass clowns tried to say she was doing in her free time to make THEM look a little better, I guess.  Given my childhood, which most who know me personally are aware of–if she were offering anyone drugs I would have been a prime candidate for self-medication back then just to escape the bull crap that went on in my life.

RIP Leslie…I still miss you, kid…

I also have an aunt who was murdered…They never found who did that either…Either way, Leslie got no justice and my aunt’s killers are out there and it sucks.

Have WE Gotten to the Point to Where We Can’t Fix This?

Before I begin, I suggest (strongly) that you read this article.  http://www.trueactivist.com/the-real-problem-with-that-rolling-stone-cover/

it speaks to why the Rolling Stone cover with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is the real problem for anyone who is tired of the media meddling and interfering with trying this case when the courts should by trying the guy. If this case ends in a mistrial, the jury pool is already tainted anyhow.

What worries me more is that America is becoming too comfortable with the media covering up some stories while expounding on others, depending on what political affiliation the subject of the story entails.  This is NOT journalism.  I do not even consider it to be close to being worthy of the term.  Reporters should be reporting any breaking story–not the ones that make one person look bad as they work to protect the political entities they tend to favor–or those who own them…Take your pick on that one.

If the powers that be don’t want to get their heads out of their fannies and fix the mess in this country, then the moderates need to band together with other independents and simply vote libertarian and be done with  these jokers already. I’d truly prefer it if the bankers were jailed with them too, but I did notice that OUR media didn’t report on what Iceland did to fix their economic woes and the people did it–not the government

The media also needs to inform the government that children are NOT their property. They are not property of the village, state,  collective or whatever the hell they want to call it. In fact, I am thinking that government is too big, paid too much and doing to little to preserve this nation. They should be fired. It’s that simple. I’m tired of both parties making excuses and pointing fingers at each other, and pitting Americans against each other on what should be common sense issues. Stop trying to legislate who can be with who–whether it’s marriage or whatever.  In short, the government, along with most Americans can make this a better place by tending to their own back yards instead of trying to control what everyone else does in theirs. If the media would listen to the viewers (the majority of whom are fed up with the bull going on in Washington), they might enjoy better ratings for a change.

And for those reporters who claim to be Christian out there–get the board out of your eye before trying to pull the splinter out of everyone else’s since judgment will begin with the “House of God”. If you read your bibles, then you should be able to quote chapters and verses that statement is out of. If not, stop being hypocrites and dust them off and read those things once in a while. Better yet FOLLOW the rules in it so you won’t be in other peoples’ business. It’s up to God to judge others–not you.

My mountain looks better all the time. I don’t have to listen to all the lies on the news up there too. The members of the media are tentacles of the beast that keeps this crap going and it is time that Americans stop judging each other and start pointing the finger at the leadership of this country, however they must quit believing the media first because all of them tend to lie too much or omit facts while being overly free with their opinions. They, along with the government have failed the country. It  remains divided. Now the PEOPLE must fix this mess because they will not. They will only make it worse. I am truly starting to wonder if Iceland had the right idea.
