Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 23rd,2015

.. well , people will understand that a grand jury is important ..

.. it is an important part of our criminal justice system …

.. grand juries date back to the beginning of our republic , and even further than that . They are a valuable check on the power of the state ..

.. [link] to the news article …

.. the power of the state to indict is an awesome power . It is one that is supposed to be used wisely , and not without reason or judgement . in this case , police officer Darren Wilson was held up to the harsh light of the grand jury and its judgement ..

.. he passed , and he was not indicted …

.. but , for God ‘ s sake , over the typefont ?!?! …

.. James and several other NBA players led a protest during warmups the other evening , just before their various scheduled games . They were wearing t – shirts that were making a public statement . These t – shirts had the expression … ” I Can’t Breathe , ” after the statement made by Eric Garner in his arrest over the summer , which resulted in in his eventual death ..

.. here is a photo of LeBron ‘ s t – shirt …

.. but , for God ‘ s sake , to protest over the typefont that the players used ? That is ridiculous …

.. I am a huge basketball fanatic . I am also a lifelong Cleveland Cavaliers fan . yea , that means that I and others have subject to a great deal of ridicule as well as suffering , down through the years . No , I am not wild about LeBron ‘ s protest . He is ” smarter than the average bear , ” so he knows what he is doing …

.. but , bitching over the typefont ? Get real , folks . The guys wanted their statement to be seen . They are not dummies . They knew that they were going to be criticized by other people [including me] for their protest . But , to minimize their protest in that way ? No , that is wrong …
