Last week, one of my co-workers got caught in a riptide and carried out into the Atlantic. “I managed to keep my head above water,” he said. “I was thinking, I’m not going out like this, not with my daughters standing on the beach watching, no sir.” As he spoke this morning, still shaken, a son, a mother, a husband, a friend stood up in a courtroom across town, pleading against a current. Scandal, suspicion, slander, sentenced. And all our sadness and our rage are swept out to sea along with their good names. This is not justice for the #APS12. And this is not justice for the kids whose self-worth is affected by a system that was designed to exclude them.
