Considering the topic of this article and its content, the first photo caption should read "Johnson was convicted of killing . . . " not "Johnson killed . . . "

can you have a fair trial in a kangaroo court in a county/state/nation...???
UNEQUAL JUSTICE is the root of many of these convictions to begin with.
WE ALL should want FAIR EQUAL justice for everybody God allowed to be created.
If you can point out any that are not created by Him, we will deal with them then.
