Humanity not commodity - Leann DeHart # Around the Web

There are those who find themselves incarcerated and those who teach and minister to those who are incarcerated. I have been a loyal reader and follower of Chris Hedges who has written for Truthdig for many years. He is a man with an uncanny sense for the truth and a wisdom that captures the times. He and his wife teach in the prison system.

In one of Hedges’ latest articles “The Mirage of Justice,” commenting on the documentary Making a Murderer, I find the hopelessness of a corrupted system that continues to grind up the non guilty along with the guilty exhibiting a merciless and unabated hunger to destroy where one side is unaccountable for vicious behavior and the other side is complicit.
