Justice for Walter Scott is Justice For Us All

When Do We Want It?

FoxNews: "Circuit Judge Clifton Newman on Monday declared a mistrial in the case of Michael Slager after the jury of 11 whites and one black deadlocked. The panel, considering verdicts of murder or voluntary manslaughter, deliberated more than 22 hours over four days and heard testimony from 55 witnesses during the five-week trial.

"God is my strength, and I know without doubt he is a just God and injustice will not prevail," Scott's mother, Judy, told reporters later. "We have a federal trial and another trial to go. I'm going to rest in the Lord."".......

Amen, sister, amen.

Judge Napolitano says the trial judge blew it by not interrogating the jurors and replacing any malcontents, especially if there was a racial motive. It is also an insult that the defendant is free on bond.

Slager shot Walter Scott like he was a dog in the street, and then planted evidence to cover it up, ripping holes in that family and even his own.  Only God can provide the Grace, but a jury must provide justice.

The sooner, the better.
