Quote for the Day: For Michael Brown, "There Can Be No Real or Lasting Justice. He’s Dead, and Death Is Forever"

Bill Blum on the kind of justice we can, in all probability, expect in the case of Michael Brown:

In the end, as in the King case, it may take a federal civil rights prosecution to bring Wilson to justice. But even then, the justice delivered will be of the small-scale variety. For Michael Brown, who is now a statistic and a symbol in America’s long history of institutionalized racial violence, there can be no real or lasting justice. He’s dead, and death is forever.
