Whatever happened to justice for all

The recent shootings in Colorado, as horrible as it was, made me ask the question, whatever happened to justice for all?

Someone walks into a theater and starts shooting, that person is arrested. Shortly-there-after the media starts up with its anti-gun articles. The person that killed the people inside the theater will be brought to justice. The liberal media in their attempt to push certain social agendas will use the shooting as a launching point for more gun control.

When Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, did anyone talk about banning trucks, or banning fertilizer? As a truck owner, I can tell you straight up there is no need to give people access to trucks that can carry a ton of explosives. We need to restrict truck access to a limited few. Only delivery companies and transport companies need trucks, everyone else can use a car or SUV.

The government orders U.S. citizens killed in a drone attack, and nobody cares. Anwar Al-Awlaki and his son Abdulrahman al-Awlaki were both killed in a drone attack. They were never granted their right to due process, never brought to trial, never given access to the evidence against them. The CIA sent a drone in and killed both of them. Where is the public outcry? Is obama a serial killer because he ordered US citizens killed with drones? Who else gets away with murder? Only the government.

The lack of humanity by the government

angelina river jasper texasThis is just my personal opinion, but I have always felt that certain people in the Government lack a sense of humanity. When developing biological weapons, did the scientist ever ask themselves if they should “really” develop the weapons? When the companies were making land mines, was there ever a discussion on their impacts on people after the war. While coal burning plants contribute to mercury contamination of fish and our waterways, the government sits on its hands and does nothing. While gas companies buy up green energy patents, only to do nothing with them, the government does nothing. While people are held without a trial and tortured in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the people in power give their stamp of approval.
