"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere"...MLK, Jr.
This week, I learned of a disturbing incident of police brutality of students on the campus of Colby College in Waterville, ME. The students were then arrested and charged with criminal trespass and assault. Their very future now lies in the balance.
I simply urge each of you to review the following news articles and especially the video footage of a portion of the incident. WARNING: The video contains graphic violence upon the students.
While I understand the civil legal ramifications faced by the college, some times, people need to do the "right" thing. Some times, the right thing is not blurry at all. Some times, when an unpleasant situation presents itself, the best course of action is to face it head on in pursuit of truth and justice rather than wandering down the dark road of self-preservation. In the end, what's done in the dark will always come to light. Well, the light is on. What do you see?
Calling out for "Equal Rights and Justice"...
