A Living Crucifiction

I was watching the news about an American hero who suffered mightily for doing the right thing.

He risked his life to save others and was crucified by Law enforcement agencies and the American Media. This is not the only case where the media has jumped all over "A person of interest" and made their life hell, only to discover that they were innocent all along. Without so much as a "sorry 'bout that" they move on to the next victim while we watch the disembowelment of a person's life on tv, riveted as the sharks feed on living flesh.

We as a society have less shame than conscience. Would that it were the other way around.

Sharon Cobb tells this story.
