3. Honestly, spicyststa, your words

strike my heart more than I can say. My family had to to deal with a prosecutor who was relentless in our police brutality case. I guess my point is no matter how much support Ms. Mason gets, Wilson will not stop until the U.S. District Court and/or U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stop her. And Wilson knows that she will be stopped but that's not the point as we know, but to cause as much unbearable suffering and example-making as possible.

But I do understand that we grieve for those without the means, education and/or wherewithal to withstand and fight this level of injustice. After reading her statement that she will never vote again, I know republicons won. And still, she will have to deal with the trauma that is real PTSD as well as for her loved ones.

I just hope that people who hear of her will donate to her defense and will keep alert of the many others who need our help to donate. The only good thing so far is that more and more focus is on this county and hopefully many others will have the spotlight beaming on them.

Thank you for the links, spicysista.

On Edit: I have to include that in our case, The DA, after the prosecutor was struck down over and over again, eventually became our defense attorney only in hopes that my family member would not sue the state. But a few years later, dealing with this trauma, we still don't know what to do - heal or fight. We have to let our family member reach his own decision. It's not a just a travesty but just fucking tragic for people across the country.
