Personal Agenda v. Rule Of Law

These are difficult times we live in. Personally, I believe that we are experiencing what Noah felt just before the Flood, that men are doing whatever they want, people do what is right in their own eyes and completely disregard the rule of law.

That's what happened in Baltimore.
Whether it was politics of public pressure, we may never know for sure what led State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to file charges against six innocent police officers in response to the death of Freddie Gray. For whatever her reasoning was, leaked text messages now show that those charges were going to be filed, regardless of the outcome of the investigation.
This is going to cost the taxpayers of Baltimore a huge chunk of cash. Not only will the cops sue, but the police union spent hundreds of thousands defending the six cops. The union had to raise its dues in order to meet those expenses. In addition, the cops have dialed down their aggressive anti-crime actions; Baltimore now has a homicide rate that is spiraling out of control.

The inner city residents got exactly what they want and now they don't want it..
The malicious prosecution of the six officers withstood the scrutiny of the Grand Jury. The Grand Jury upheld the charges but they were not provided with all of the factual information on the case. The lead investigator on the case, Detective Dawnyell Taylor, says she was pressured by the prosecutor to provide information from a 4-page typed narrative, which appeared to be intentionally misleading. In an article published in June by The Baltimore Sun, Taylor was quoted as saying, “As I read over the narrative it had several things that I found to be inconsistent with our investigation.” She went on to say that she was handed the pre-printed narrative just prior to testifying at the grand jury.

It is unethical for the prosecution to provide a statement to a witness in a criminal trial, and many cases have been dropped for far less.

What is worse? I think they honestly thought they might be able to rig it so that, even if innocent, those cops would still go down. They have done that countless times. Are even city folk deciding that the criminality of their system is too much? Or is the ability of the left that runs these places weakening or just failing due to the corrupting influence of indoctrination from academia over education? Something is happening, changing, and it isn't helping their side.

There are no lengths too great, nor depths too deep where progressives are not willing to wander in the pursuit of their ideology.

I know. Used to be one of them, but honestly. I didn't hide, or deny sin, or lie. I know, too, where that leads. Death would be a sorely treasured offer, but will not be an option, for those who find their way to the prize, or even die trying to reach it. I do pray for them. God knows, if it weren't for Him, that would be all there is. Even now they have a chance, as the workers who receive a day's wage for only a bit of work in the vineyards can attest. It's God's coin, in Christ's blood, after all.

Still, as the Jews failed, so will the rest. Only, though I don't think this is the time, if it were? They don't get to kill Jesus again. That keeps me going on tough mornings. Well, and that I stand against that, as well... now. I stand against that to my death, if need be. Some deaths should be embraced.
