Six Sentence Story- video- Justice Denied

OOPS_ I grabbed an old prompt. Oh well, this is my story.

See the source image

I’d never been cross-ways to the law that’s why my concealed carry pistol permit processed easily and without delay.
It was the Fourth of July, so I dressed for my trip in an American flag t-shirt and my Make America Great Again baseball cap.
I was half way to the fairground celebration when steam started flooding from the hood on the highway so I took the first exit to find a garage ending up in downtown Seattle before I could find one that was open on the holiday.
Relieved, and since I’d never been there, I set out on foot to tour the city, while my car was being serviced, when out of nowhere, a gang of young men surrounded me and threatened to kill me because of my race and attire!
In a blur, one of them lay dead at my feet with a knife still folded in his fist, but thankfully, I noticed two security cameras nearby that would corroborate my clear self-defense case for the police.
After questioning, and a hospital visit to treat my abrasions, (and the severe anxiety of the event), I was arrested – no video would ever be produced in my murder defense because the DA claimed there were multiple ‘technical difficulties’.

    Hmm. Strangely similar to certain contemporary cases. Can it be that justice is a thing of the past for our great nation? Hope not. Thanks to independent news media Kyle Rittenhouse at least was able to present video evidence that the DA claimed was unavailable first.
    Pax,

      Darn tootin’, Dora.
      Hope you noticed that the race of none of the characters is ever made clear. Most will assume what they want (propoganda) without any pause.
      Peace,
      Susan

    A great story of conflict for the worst reasons. I like how he feels like an agent at the beginning but is attacked because of the normal race issues. Well done.

      Thank you Mason. There are so many good people being marginalized by appearances.

        I know, it’s awful. Just Monday a chap was forced to take an estate agent to court because he valued his home sig ificangtly lower just because of his colour. Deplorable.

Tell me something good...
