Bob McDonnell

Two justice systems, separate and unequal

Two justice systems, separate and unequal

Many people refuse to believe that we have two different justice systems in this country based along racial and class lines. Yet a glaring example of that was divide demonstrated by the events surrounding Freddie Gray's death in Baltimore and the trial on corruption charges of former Gov. Robert McDonnell of Virginia.

After more than two years of courtroom drama, Mr. McDonnell will not be retried on charges of accepting money in exchange for using the governor's office to promote the products of a wealthy businessman and political crony. The charges were dismissed, and he will be allowed to get on with his life.

I have no idea whether Mr. McDonnell was innocent or guilty....
