Sample Letter To Editor,
The fact that inmates are dying in record numbers is indicative of the
that the Justice system is broken, just as the fact that the death penalty
is unfairly applied to lower income citizens and minorities is, as well.
Before it becomes the injustice system, it needs fixing. State
like Sonny Scroggins in Kansas, which look to establish programs that can
independently investigate any death of a person held in institutions by
gov't, can go a long way towards addressing these injustices.
We've a moral obligation as citizens to insure that no person held in
institutions of our gov't are abused, or killed. Therefore, there should
be a full investigation when anyone dies while in any gov't institution.
For, being American isn't only having the rights guaranteed to us by the
Constitution and Declaration of Independence, it's also affording them to
others. As well, while rights are being taken away from one, they are
slowly being chipped away from all. So, when we are doing our civic duty
by insuring the rights of those held in institutions, we're also insuring
our and our families' rights will be upheld.
We must remember Angela Davis' words, "Prisons don't disappear problems,
they disappear human beings." Also, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.s', "We're
caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of
destiny. Whatever affects one directly, effects all indirectly." Lest
forget, if you don't exercise responsibility, its Siamese sister, freedom,
will wither, as well. Also, injustices have costs, if addressed their
individual, if not addressed, their global, too. For example, the U.S.
5% of the world population, yet, 29% of its prisoners. The number of
immigrants in the Federal system grew 90% in the last 7 years, although
98.5% are of them are nonviolent. If we really wish to address the unrest
in the world, we have to start in our own back yard. Truly Yours,
Viva la evolution, viva Green Party! As always, feel free to copy and
share, as well. Thanx! Enjoy a festive eve' as you can. Ciao, for now.
