how can we call it justice when lives are taken and people are acquitted
how can we call it justice when latinos and blacks are randomly being stop and frisk
how can we call it justice when the spanish cop did commit a crime of sexual assault (75 yrs to life), yet there are people that committed murder and terrorism and they receive less time
how can we call it justice when all the money is being invested to build jails
how can we call it justice where there is false arrests
how can we call it justice when you have crooked judges, cops, and lawyers
what kind of justice is that? definitely not poetic justice

jwiener

This poem made me think about how not everything in life is fair, and things don't always make sense, but we have to believe that things will get better somehow.

it makes sense because you have to think about who profits from all the corruption
what we need to do is educate ourselves and stand up to challenge the ideas of what we feel is right or wrong
