There is a growing sense among many Americans — some have held the sentiment for a long time — that our nation’s justice system is biased, corrupt and multi-tiered and often fails to hold wrongdoers accountable while putting innocent victims and witnesses through absolute hell in the process.
This was touched on in a rage-inducing story told via a series of tweets by an author and prolific thread-weaver on Twitter named Thomas Wictor.
Wictor’s thread began with a discussion of some of the latest developments regarding the anti-Trump investigation and prosecutions by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and elements of the Justice Department, as well as Wictor’s belief that “Judas goats” were purposefully misleading Democrats from the inside to undermine and destroy the party and how some of what we see in the justice system is little more than staged Kabuki theater to distract and entertain the masses.
To prove his thesis on how messed up the justice system is and has been for some time, he shared a story about how he once tried to help local authorities take down a pervert who turned out to be a rapist and serial sexual criminal. We’ll let Wictor tell the story:
This story from Wictor about how it took more than a decade for him to finally even get a hint of a day in court to testify against a provably bad guy, only to ultimately see the criminal walk with a slap on the wrist after all that time, is but one example of the sort of injustice we seem to see so often these days in our nation’s justice system.
There is a dire need for some reform to that system, and while details of such reform are certainly debatable, what isn’t debatable at all is that victims and witnesses should not be put through hell and utterly failed by that system while criminals slink away with minimal punishment to potentially reoffend and further victimize society.
