If your silence is because you are fed up with crime, the greater crime on your hands is your apparent willingness to let a 14 year old rot in prison despite his innocence. If your silence is because you are fed up with crime, the greater crime is knowing that the victims on Runyon Street did not get justice by sending an innocent 14 year old mentally disabled kid to prison for those crimes. Your silence is betrayal and will become karma.
Mr. Sanford lost his life, just like Trayvon Martin - a life where he should have been allowed to graduate from school, go to college and enjoy all the things every other innocent teenager his age has enjoyed.
