The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander!
My first posting is here.
Blog post complete and linked to title above!
but it was certainly a gentle and reasonable approach
to investigating this crime and it's perpetrators,
John Allen Rubio and Angela Camacho.
I am in total agreement with Tillman,
while it is impossible to parse apart exact cause(s)
of such mindsets as John had in those treacherous moments,
does that give US (you...and me) the right to KILL him?
And would this have happened if they had had more financial aid, like a place to live?
So many questions raised and no firm answers to be given,
none to be had, and probably never will be...
But do we live in mercy? Or not...
Speaking of Mercy...
In the meantime, here is my Goodreads review.
And I should at least forewarn you that it is a rant...and a half! :)
And I can assure there will most likely be more than one posting from this one!
I found Stevenson's writing to be seamless, it flowed so well for me!
