I Guess Those Pleas of Innocence

don't mean that much now?

I don't think this excuses what he did (if he did it; we're still in the land of allegations, though this sounds like the prelude to a confession), but I never condemned him. Mostly, I felt sorry for him. Throwing the first stone, and all that. But I'm not keen on prisons or punishment. Neither seems all that much aligned with justice. IMHO, anyway.

  1. Since no one got falsely charged or put on trial or falsely convicted, if he did what he's accused of it cries out for public admission and community service of an appropriate kind and length. American prisons are too varied and too badly run to put non-violent offenders in them.
