Mocking Justice

When I saw this picture of Tom DeLay laughing in the courtroom as if taunting the justice system...
I was reminded of the famous photo of two Neshoba County cops who were responsible for the deaths of three civil rights workers in Mississippi, on trial in 1967. I always thought their disdain for justice was a portrait of pure evil.
Exonerated by a local all-white male jury, the federal government prosecuted and the two men served some jail time. Deputy Sheriff Cecil Price later returned to his job and continued to serve as a law enforcement officer until his retirement.

Let's hope DeLay's trial has a better ending
