What's going on?

During a social crisis, greatness leads by voicing a firm and powerful guarantee that we will use all means necessary to see to it that constitutional principals will be followed, so that blind justice arrives at the proper conclusion. Pandering to one side or the other under these circumstances is morally bankrupt. Having moral courage is expensive, usually in the short term, but when victory finally emerges, sometimes, after some very dark hours; all peoples come together as a nation of principles for goodness, not evil.
This is the legacy of Lincoln, Roosevelt, Reagan, Churchill, Sadat and countless Supreme Court justices who wrote majority opinions that were unpopular, but just. The western movie metaphor of the iconoclast, who shoots the lynchman's rope in search of justice; this is what is at the heart of the American social contract. Everyone in this country should be asking themselves this question. Are our leaders standing up for moral imperatives as dictated by the constitution of the United States, of do they pander to an alienated constituency in line with his own form of personal moral relativism? Do we individually, care more about a political victory than having justice? Daren Wilson should not be railroaded because of the politics of social alienation. However, the morally bankrupt behavior of the Obama justice department, Governor Nixon and the biased media is absolutely disgusting. Did Eric Holder meet with Wilson too? Why not? There are two sides to every story and Daren Wilson deserves an equally honest commitment that justice will be blind. If Daren Wilson is guilty, he should pay the price. However, the principals of blind justice and innocent until proven guilty must prevail. Even the slightest appearance of a politicized justice process will leave a legacy of tainted leadership. Is blind justice occurring in Ferguson? Probably not, we as a nation should be ashamed.
