My Back Pages

Before this blog I had a tiny piece of Geocities. Geocities closed down in 2009 but I recently discovered someone has been reloading old site content at something calling itself oocities. I'm glad to see these back. I remember a fantastic Danny Kirwan (of early Fleetwood Mac) site on geocities, much more deserving of preservation but which sadly appears to be gone forever now.

What's Going On?

Count me among those heartsick over the lack of justice for a seventeen year old.

It was chilling to see the defense lawyers attempting to demean the friend who was on the phone with him just before he was killed. It was completely astonishing to see him described as armed because he had a sidewalk! You'd only expect a defense like that in some backward near lawless country. I don't know how you would live with yourself doing such a good job for a person who went to lengths to create a confrontation. There were no burglary tools on the 'suspicious' teenager, but the adult confronter had a loaded gun.

And still they won't listen, won't talk to them... so they can see...

what's going on?

I appear to have lost three of my scant number of 'followers' after this post. The perils of being at all 'political'?
