Justice For The Rest Of Us

A middle-aged social scientist who started blogging to support social justice and spread the gospel of non-violence. Though it may cost me followers, I will criticize the left when we make mistakes, including resorting to violence when it isn't necessary. Cesar Chavez, who organized disenfranchised migrant workers and Martin Luther King, who not only fought for civil rights but for economic justice, exemplify the principles I espouse here. But make no mistake about it: I am a proud member of the left.

On a personal note, I love Siamese cats, and I'm addicted to baseball. As a public service, I post one cute animal picture everyday. Don't be surprised to see something about music from the 60s every once in a while.

More fun with the New York City Police Department. Pictured above, protesters of Mayor Bloomberg’s “Stop and Frisk” policy endure the wrath of an officer who likes pulling hair. Muslims protest NYPD surveillance, and an officer swings his baton at Occupy protesters. 

Below is David Ranta, who spent 23 years in a maximum security prison after being falsely convicted of a robbery/murder. A witness who testified against him in 1990 called Ranta’s defense attorney last year to tell him that he was coached to pick Ranta from a line-up. At the time, the witness was only 13. He told the prisoner’s attorney:

"The police told me to pick the guy with the big nose."

The now retired officer denies any wrongdoing.
