After the LA Riots

There are two stories about them:

  • The first, one of the perps, who never served a day in prison for his actions. He is still angry, despite having benefited from the system's mercy to him - not having to pay, either in money or time, for his crime.
  • The second, one of the victims, is still suffering the after-effects of the attack - which included, beating, kicking, nearly having his ear torn off, stripping his clothes off, and spray-painting him black. Oh, and dousing him with gasoline - he is fortunate that no one had a match. He was robbed of money and tools and his truck was torched. And yet, he is married and largely supporting himself. And, not bitter.

Funny how that happens.
