Lives Shattered: When the Truth No Longer Matters


By Carrie K. Hutchens

The madness that is over-taking this world never fails to amaze me! I continue to wonder just how all this is possible. When did we stop being, as a whole, compassionate people with the ability to comprehend and reason? When did that all happen? Is there a cure for the insanity that is devouring us?

Mike Nifong, the district attorney from North Carolina, got caught withholding evidence that PROVED the accused were innocent of the charges against them and caught lying to the court. That is spelled, P-R-O-V-E-D and C-A-U-G-H-T! Yet, there are those who are still talking as though the three Duke lacrosse team members (accused of rape) are guilty and that their money simply bought them out of it. Excuse me?!?!?

What part of the facts are these people having difficulty comprehending?

What part of reality is zooming over their heads somewhere beyond their grasp?

The "evidence" -- that information and material gathered to either prove or disprove -- proved the three that were accused, were not guilty of the charges against them. Yet, Mike Nifong, as a representative of the system, pursued prosecuting them anyway. I can't even begin to guess what was in his mind, what he thought he was doing or why he was doing it, but... he had no right to do it for any reason. Likewise, no one has any right to continue "suggesting and/or stating" that the falsely accused are guilty and simply got off as a result of money.

They were CLEARED because...

The actual evidence proved them innocent (from the onset of the investigation) with Mike Nifong guilty of perpetrating a fraud upon the court and system. Why is that so difficult to comprehend?

Justice should be justice simply because it is justice. There should be no money value attached to it or required to gain it. However, in a realistic sense, we should become quite alarmed when the innocent rich are likewise finding themselves railroaded and in a desperate fight for truth and justice in their lives as well.

How bold injustice has become!

What can possibly be the next step for mankind, as we find ourselves devoured by a madness that steals not only our reason, but our humanity and puts us in a time when the truth seems to no longer matter?
