  1. You have to admit that life would be easier if everything was either/or. Then again, what would life be like if all people looked at things like this? Such a restraint on curiosity and understanding would have crippled us as a species in so many ways, and luckily in our history, there have been people brave enough to break from their restraints, illuminating the world even as their lights were extinguished. If people lock themselves into their own narrow perspectives, we lose all sense of understanding any any potential for peace.

  4. I'm very disappointed with this article, which is clearly written by someone who has not seriously investigated the facts relating to Mr. Adebile's nomination or his representation of Abu-Jamal. Abu-Jamal confessed to standing over the prone body of Officer Daniel Faulkner and shooting him at point blank range. He said at the time he hoped the officer died. The officer did die, and Abu-Jamal was charged with his murder.
    Abu-Jamal used his trial as political theater, during which he accused American society of racism — because a black mayor ordered a black chief of police to arrest a group of black criminals who were shooting at the black residents of the neighborhood in which these people were living while doing things like defecating in their front yard and shooting at the people who attempted to come and collect their trash.
    Contrary to what the author of this article suggests, the defense Mr. Adegbile was no noble battle against the racism of the American criminal justice system. That argument might work if a conviction had been won, or the death penalty imposed, against the weight of the evidence. It obviously makes no sense at all with respect to Abu Jamal. Which is perhaps why the African-American District Attorney in Philadelphia came out against Adegbile's nomination.
    Every good person is against guilt by association. But sometimes criminals are just guilty. Someone who decides to try to get his client off by attacking the entire criminal justice system might be doing a good job by his client; but it doesn't make any sense in the world to put a guy who does that in charge of that very criminal justice system. That's why Adebgile's nomination was shot down, by Democrats.
    Someone who wants to argue the contrary needs to begin by confronting the facts.
