» SFB says: We’ve gotten a lot of responses about this — with many of you feeling that it perhaps didn’t hit the mark — and ultimately, while a lot of you are understandably angry about the case, I admit that it makes me numb. It is a bummer. And I’m bummed. Bummed about the justice system, about the way that it doesn’t feel like it serves everyone the same way, and in the process, never feels like the right decisions get made; and ultimately, I’m bummed about the way it makes me feel powerless in my own country. For every case like James Byrd, Jr.’s dragging — an open-and-shut case if there ever was one, no matter how you personally feel about the death penalty — there are tons of cases like Troy Davis’. I’m bummed because I’m livid. I’m bummed because I feel powerless, as a citizen of this country. So yes, it is a bummer. And a lot of other things. — Ernie @ SFB
