We are having trouble with the police department in my town. HOW is it that they think that their testimony will outweigh the truth of a citizen whose rights have been trampled? And how political is our system that a DA who represents the police can walk in and support those lies? And how is it that an attorney will not stand up for his client in this way because of the political BS that goes on? And, how involved are judges in all of this?

I am at my wits end here. I am ready to go back and sue my state for 15 months of pure hell and lies...too much power, it is rediculous...do we really have rights anymore? I can't go into detail because this case is active, but it involves someone I love very much who is a good person and was attacked by man who was just released from jail a week earlier for battery with substantial bodily harm.....fell and broke his f-ing leg, and told the police that this other person kicked him and broke his leg....and the police took his side!!! They didn't even ID him, or, if they did, they ignored this man's previous charge who, by the way is now serving time in prison for 48 months! Where is the justice, where are the brains? I am so angry with our system. I have always respected our police dept. and I know that they have a hard job to do, and I know that there are people out there who deserve to be taken to task for their crimes, but my faith has been shaken. Yesterday a boy was crying on the side of the road, and my son wanted to go help him and talk to him and comfort him. Someoen at the gas station hasd already called th e police about this boy. My son wanted to help him in the interim...but you know what? What he normally would have done in his heart, he didn't do, because he was afraid the police would accuse him of something weird, like, did you do anything to this boy??? What has happened to our system?? I am so UPSET.

I had to vent...don't feel better, but will someone please talk to me about this, or share anything that you know?

My experiences with our judicial system has shown me that yes, our legal system is possibly the best in the world (next to Japan I say), for those who abide by it's rules and follow it's orders.

For others, it is a playground.

I wish I could be of more comfort. But it is my opinion that if you are turning to our legal system for support and justice, you are traveling a path different than that which has been portrayed and one that is different than that which you have come to believe in.

I have found the following to be true. In speaking the truth, loud and clear, many friends (or those who I thought were friends) were lost, my faith challenged, my sense of safety diminished, my mental stability questioned, and just- my world shattered. Reality is often quite different than what we perceive it to be, and have perceived it to be for so very long.

More than once, I have found myself standing alone for what i felt, believed, thought, was right.

And in the end, turned out I wasn't wrong.

But other people don't know that. Other people don't know what you know. Those you need to believe you and trust you, they live in THEIR reality, in THEIR perceptions.

I now you are a spiritual person of faith OMW.

I really believe things happen for a reason. We often don't know that reason for quite some time, if ever.

Standing alone for what I believed in, standing alone for what I knew was true, standing alone and telling the truth versus choosing silence, has been difficult. this last time around for me I almost shied away from as I knew what was coming: reality.

But it has brought me that much closer to Jesus.

because as you know OMW, these are the things He did. And these are but a few of the things he endured.

So I say, speak the truth no matter the consequences, speak loudly, speak clearly. As that is a walk few will choose.

The outcome will likely not be what you expect or hope or want or wish it to be,.

But it will be what it is supposed to be. Believe that OMW.

Hugs and a warm touch to you OMW, during this time of trial and challenge.

Hi tree_hugs_4life,

Thank you for the awesome reminder of Jesus, who He was and is. Being reminded strengthens and encourages me. And, to be reminded that humans fail, disappoint us, and perhaps my faith, and placing it in my judicial system has been misplaced all along. I'll begin to trust God instead. Lesson learned....fear is in my post above, and I certainly do not need that at this time, nor do I need to be imparting that to my circle of family members.

Thank you for sharing your walk with me, and for encouraging me and helping to bring me back to the giver of all things, especially peace, Jesus Christ. Coupled with the sermons I have heard recently during this past week, your post has solidified my faith.

I don't know who you are, but thank you, and God Bless,
