THE POINTING FINGER

Justice Tomorrow. Justice Yesterday. But Justice Today?
BY DR. STEPHEN FINGER

Hmm, I’ll have to get back to you on that one.

In its recent Ferguson report, the Department of Justice noted that, despite all the large and contentious ‘protests’, only two formal complaints were lodged against police officers and that this was clear proof that the citizens of Ferguson had no trust that a complaint could be resolved satisfactorily.

What?!

Suppose that instead of two complaints, there had been 200 or 2,000?

Would that have meant that the people had great trust and confidence in the police or would it be more like, “See, we told you. Cops acting like... cops. Better send the president to make a speech to the U.N.”

Not a good situation when the robbers always get the benefit of the doubt and the cops always get...the doubt.
