Thanks for this week's "A Public Witness." This situation with these two wrongly convicted and wrongly imprisoned men is one of the great tragedies of the Missouri Judicial/Governmental system. A governor with a scintilla of morality, ethics or Christian decency would have pardoned both of these men long ago. However, as Emerson observed, "what you do speaks so loudly I cannot hear what you are saying." The actions of Missouri's Governor, as well as, the Attorney General, speak volumes, not about justice, but about racism. Once again we are confronted with the gut wrenching truth of leaders in our society who turn a deaf ear, a blind eye and a closed mind to blatant injustice. Rule of law for such leaders is simply a tool to further advance white nationalism.
