If I were mean and sarcastic I'd say he's probably got a slumber party scheduled to celebrate, but in reality I know that's not a joking matter. I am devestated by this decision for some reason. It's like, is there no justice at all in this world? I mean, if anybody on the planet is guilty, it's MJ, and he gets to go home a free freak tonight.
I'm at work, and I'm on the verge of tears on this. It is so not fair. It hurts very, very much. How can 12 people honestly listen to a boy telling his story to the police and not believe him? It feels like I just got shot through the heart. I know, I know, innocent beyond a reasonable doubt, but here, me on this site with an uncle who is also believed more than the child he SA--it's personal. And it hurts, and it's not fair, and if ever there was an opportunity for somebody to stand up for a kid....
I need a hug on this one.
