Therefore I would expect to hear something from the local chapter, at which I was, of course, ummmm.... an outspoken (and correct) Legal Chair in addressing a possible case of police abuse, even though not a single soul from the local chapter ever followed up to request more information from the Jaffrey Police Chief Dunn, who was eventually.... ummmm.... fired:
Check this post for reference on the burgoening Death Penalty issue -- in which a response to a Nashua Telegraph forum post I initiated on this matter is documented as raising some truly troubling issues regarding race, class and money. I end it with a quote from that Negro lawyer from the NAACP, Thurgood Marshall.
"The death penalty is no more effective a deterrent than life imprisonment... It is also evident that the burden of capital punishment falls upon the poor, the ignorant and the underprivileged members of society."
Here I am reading Carl T. Rowan's biography, "Dream Makers Dream Breakers" about Attorney Marshall to my Great Aunt Mother Ann.
But perhaps the reason we are listening to the sounds of silence in this case is because the NAACP changed its Mission Statement during my tenure as follows:
As they threw me under the bus (read this email) they removed words like "keep the public aware," and "take lawful action to secure elimination of discrimination," and the new version contains none of that.
What goes around, comes around. Kind of like a bus route, right?
