I heard this quote by Shirley Franklin on last night’s news broadcast, and I absolutely love it. Say what you will about her and her political career, but this is not meant to be a political post; it’s a human post.
Below is more of what she said. Just some thoughts to ponder:
“Yes cheating is awful. And so is conviction before a fair trial. I believe every accused person deserves a fair trial under a set of laws that promises to be just and balanced. I don’t support public hangings.”
“…everyone who is charged has a right to a fair trial with competent representation.”
