In light of the recent shooting in Farmville I have been patiently waiting for the satellite trucks from MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, NBC and CBS to descend upon Pitt County. You would think that such an outrageous act of violence committed against a minority family that was trying to make a living would surely garner national media attention. But it has not and it will not because there is no agenda to push. There is no media attention for the various organizations who preach justice and equality to garner.
Where is the rally for justice on the courthouse steps? Where are all the honorable reverends who normally jump at a chance for publicity to further enhance and further their causes? They preach equal justice for all, so where are they now? I will answer those questions by simply saying there are no stereotypes to enforce and no chance for them to place blame on their favorite targets.
I doubt you will see them on the television or in the newspaper. However, in their absence, I will be the voice for justice. I say no less than capital punishment for the offenders in this crime. It is high time those who continue to commit these senseless acts of violence are held accountable. Because I believe that living a life where you are not held accountable leads to actions like we have seen in this case. The current education system teaches there is no creator or higher power, so therefore who can ultimately hold anyone accountable for their actions? The justice system does not hold them accountable but just slaps the wrist for all the prior petty offenses. Lastly their parents never held them accountable because they either were not around or they were off living their consequence-free life.
