Injustice exposed

The Spokesman-Review

I want to thank The Spokesman and especially Jody Lawrence-Turner for the long overdue analysis of insane injustices in our socioeconomic system (“Debt to society,” May 24). It is only by the persistent airing of our errant ways that we will wake up and get our floundering ship of state aright and back on course.

I also want to thank Breean Beggs for his determination to teach us that the least expensive social justice system appears to be one that is far kinder and gentler than the foolish laws our legislators have crafted for our courts and police. Now, if Breean can only convince his social justice cohorts that peace and justice begin at home, and that we need to remove the beams from our own eyes before we traipse around the world poking at splinters in the eyes of others.

I wish I could better engage in these extremely valuable public discussions, but, sadly, The Spokesman has placed far too restrictive a limit on their letters word count to allow me to engage in a more productive or accurate social discourse on serious matters. I pray that they, too, will come to realize the insanity of their ways.

Mickey Thompson
