The jury ruled, now let's move on

July 21, 2013 

The trial in Sanford, Fla., is over. A verdict has been rendered. As it is often the case, not everyone is satisfied with the result, and throwing a tantrum will not change the outcome.

It is confounding to see how much energy has been spent on this single event while countless other cases remain unchallenged. Where is the righteous indignation when justice is being denied for those living in the chaos of Chicago and other cities around the country?
