In an interview with Katie Couric for Yahoo Global News, Edward Snowden said what many already know: America has a “two-tiered system of justice.” People with political value and government connections are handled with kid gloves when they mishandle or disclose classified information, even when it is for their own gain, while others — those with no political value or government connections — are given the iron fist for mishandling or disclosing classified information, even if it is for the public good.

 

 

In the wake of the announcement that “Officer Vinson’s use of deadly force was lawful” in the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, a new wave of protesters have marched in the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina.

These protests and the actions and sentiments of many of those involved are part and parcel of an ongoing attack on the very fabric of American civilization and heritage.

On Wednesday afternoon, Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray announced that the officer who fatally shot Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina, on September 20 acted lawfully, and no charges will be filed against the officer.
