Purchasing Justice Part II: The Celebrity

UNITED STATES—By now, you’re already read the previous piece “Purchasing Justice Part I: The Everyday Person,” here is the sequel to that piece.  So why is the focus turning to ‘the celebrity?’ Well we’ve all seen countless cases in the media where big time celebs have bought there way out of the legal system.  Listing the number of celebs...

Purchasing Justice Part I: The Everyday Person

UNITED STATES—The legal system in my opinion is a complicated government system to understand.  I recall my college years so vividly because I was so close to putting aside my personal goals to challenge myself to go into the legal arena. It was a battle and one that consistently challenged me because of my ‘opinion’ of how I viewed...

Fighting Back Crime

UNITED STATES—We live in a world where crime surrounds us no matter where we live. Yes, there are indeed regions in the country that are much safer than others, but there are places where crime runs rampant.  The thing about fighting crime is the misconception that the police and legal system can halt crime completely.  While it’s true to...

A Tale Of Survival

UNITED STATES—This may be the hardest piece of written work that I have ever done. In my opinion, death is something that scares all of us, some perhaps more than others. The tragic death of actor Paul Walker shook a lot of people to the core, including myself. I guess because it was so unexpected. I cannot equate his...

“The Purge” Could It Really Happen?

UNITED STATES—This weekend I watched a psychological thriller titled “The Purge.”  The movie opened in June 2013 and blew audiences by surprise.  This was a movie that instantly hooked me with its unique premise: the government allows a 12-hour period where crime is legal. Bad things happen during this period and frankly there isn’t much you can do, except...

Bullying In The Workplace

UNITED STATES—When it comes to bullying so many of us think of it as a right of passage.  It will happen to each and everyone, but just because it happened in the past doesn’t mean we should attempt to halt it from happening in the future.  Bullying is a major problem in this nation and it just appears to...

The Fight To Halt Black Thursday

UNITED STATES—People are quite angry with the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, and for good reason.  I remember as a kid there were certain holidays where you just didn’t work: Thanksgiving and Christmas to be exact.  Oh, how things have changed. The day after Thanksgiving, notably known as “Black Friday” has been a staple for retailers for years as exclusive deals...

Ruckus

UNITED STATES—It used to be so very simple. If you were a boy, you used this one and if you were a girl you used that one. If you were under six and you went with your mommy, it didn’t matter, but the boys often complained if they had to accompany Mom into the wrong restroom. Did you know that the...

Extremes

UNITED STATES—If you make the round of Youtube commentators, you will find a great number of social reviewers complaining about this group or that group seeking to take over and get things to go their own way, at everyone else’s expense. In this article, I am not going to pass judgment on the accuracy or justice of their comments....

Giving Thanks In The Time Of Need

UNITED STATES—With Thanksgiving just a few days away, many of us are probably beginning preparation for the big family feast and the abundance of food that we will consume on turkey day.  Sometimes we become so overwhelmed with the holiday season we completely forget the fact that there are so many out there with little to nothing. Mother Nature can...
