Final Tour of Virginia Tech 199705 by Clint – 53 of 94, originally uploaded by ClintJCL.

I was looking through some of my old photos, and this one brought a quick rant to mind.

The “…And Justice For All” is quite ironic, as I think Blacksburg is the town with the least justice for all.

I don’t even know where I should start.

My friend D having girls lie that he pulled a knife on them, and then having a judge rule that he is guilty for a crime he didn’t commit?

Or my friend C who was attacked by 2 others, his heart literally stopped, with multiple reconstructive surgeries done on multiple people — and the perpetrators got ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES as a punishment.  Read on for more.

A much greater punishment was given to my friend W: 100 hours community service. For stealing a jar of salsa from dietrick.

Or the community service done by my friends for going to Pandapolas pond — despite the fact that when *I* went, the police said I could go.

Or the city’s systematic shutting down of the morgue, because it took money away from the local businesses who controlled the political arena?

Or maybe the fact that you can’t vote until you’ve lived there 9 months — a convenient way to ensure students get no say.

Totally inconsistent. Totally unjust. Totally stacked against the people who are actually attending school and putting money into the local economy.

That’s Virginia Tech.

The alumni association really thinks they’re going to get a penny from me? EVER?

I think not.
