You fucking moron.
The cops shoot an unarmed man in the head, he gets 10 years in jail, the officer doesn’t face a grand jury, and the internal affairs investigation into the officer’s conduct is still incomplete. I don’t care what the guy did, what I care about is the unfairness of the punishment.
Why don’t you?
“The District Attorney would rather see me go convicted than go free,” said Stewart, at this afternoon’s sentencing hearing. “But I feel like the District Attorney is biased. You’ll convict me whether I’m guilty or not, but won’t let an officer who did a wrongful shooting go before a grand jury. That’s biased.”
Here’s my frustration: How do I convince you that this is important? How do I get you to see how awful this is, so that next time the DA is tempted to pull something similar, he thinks, “Oh, shit, last time I tried that, there was outcry.”
Because this story will die without a sound. And that is not okay. That is not good for any of us. And that is your fault, because you don’t care.
Also, nobody likes to be called a moron. I know that. But you are! You’re a moron! MORON! Care more, please. PLEASE. PLEASE? Thanks.
