    Justice comes to the DFW Metroplex.........

    A white officer who murdered an African American youth in Balch Springs, Texas just got a sentence of 15 years and a guilty verdict. Though the sentence is inadequate - lifetime with no chance of parole or were it legal, exile from the US to live in a refugee camp - would have been more appropriate, at least it's something and this evil murderer having once hid behind a badge will be doing hard time. Color me grateful though many I've spoken to in the 85006 are of the opinion that this former officer was given preferential sentencing and the sentence should have been longer so as to terrify the police.

    I say though the sentence is woefully inadequate, it's a start anyway. Rob

    Iím not sure itís a good idea to impose sentences for the purpose of terrifying any given segment of the population.

    What do sentences for the charge he was convicted of typically look like in the USA?

    It's worthy of a post because it gives hope - this story shines hope on the lives of those auto-hassled and auto-distrusted/auto-disrespected by American police. Rob

    A black couple were being robbed in their own home. They called 911 and the cops arrived and promptly shot the homeowner a black man. Ugh!

    Would it surprise one person here who knows of my posts that I am not surprised by this? Rob

    I worry about my black grandson, age 4.

    Then I realize that this is how nonwhite adults have worried for many decades óand itís my white privilege that has blinded me until I became the grandmother of a black person.

    Someday color won’t be a issue as we all mix together. Then people will fight about religion or other stupid stuff.,
