JUSTICE DENIED COMMENTARY: JUDGE GREG MATHIS

I FELL IN LOVE WITH A TRAMP! Dear Gwendolyn: I am 48 years old and recently got a divorce from a young lady age 22. We were only married for one year. During that time we had a baby being she was six months pregnant when we got married. Immediately after the marriage, she appeared not to have any affection for me. In fact, she told me that the baby is not my baby. I am paying child support. I know I can fight the issue, but I love her and do not wish to abandon the baby. This was my first marriage but I have many children by many different women. Sometimes I wonder if I am being punished because I mistreated those women. You see…when younger I was quite handsome and I took advantage of my looks. It seems I mistreated the good women who crossed my path and sadly married a tramp. Gwendolyn, why do good men fall in love with bad women? John

Dear John: What are you talking about? Good men? I know you are not referring to yourself. You are presently getting what you deserve. However, men in general have a tendency to mistreat the good and cherish the bad. John, do not consider your ex-wife a tramp. She is only being herself. I do suggest that you allow the father of her baby to financially be the responsible person for the child’s well being. If she allows you to be in the child’s life, that’s fine. However, don’t be all into that child when you admitted to having many other children of your own. That is not good reasoning. Let me tell you this: Men often fall in love with what they later considered to be a tramp. They grow old trying to get the tramp to love them in return. But think about it. Good women fall in love, --- but tramps don’t. ***Do you have a son or grandson age 10-17? Help him to choose college not jail. Order DECISIONS In The Life Of A Growing Male Youth.

October 1-15, 2011

The world waited with bated breath as the Supreme Court of the United States decided the fate of Troy Davis, a 42-year old black man sitting on Georgia’s death row. With so much doubt surrounding Davis’ guilt, his supporters hoped he’d be granted a new trial and the opportunity to prove his innocence. Unfortunately, the Court decided not to intervene and the miracle of justice we all hoped for never came Davis was executed. Davis was convicted of the 1989 murder of Mark MacPhail, an off-duty Savannah, Georgia police officer. According to reports, nine eyewitnesses identified Davis as the shooter. Up until he took his last breath, Davis main-

tained his innocence. Over the last 22 years, his legal team fought tirelessly to win a new trial, presenting affidavits from seven of those nine witnesses who recanted or dramatically changed their original testimony. I don’t want to contradict the various judges who heard the case, but it’s unthinkable that, after the majority of the original witnesses recanted, Davis was not granted a new trial so that he could prove his innocence. I’m not the only authority who feels this way. Bob Barr, a former federal prosecutor and former Republican Congressman from Georgia publicly stated he believed there was too much doubt surrounding Davis’ guilt. Barr, a supporter of the death penalty, felt that Davis’ guilt had not been proven beyond a reasonable

doubt. Former FBI chief William Sessions also weighed in on the Davis case saying, Davis deserved clemency because the case built against him was not strong enough. The pleas from these law enforcement and government experts - as well as the pleas from millions around the world - fell on deaf ears. The prosecutors and parole board refused to admit they were wrong. And now Troy Davis is dead. America must revamp its legal system - beginning with the way we investigate and arrest suspects and continuing to the way we prosecute them and the way we handle appeals. We must not allow prosecutors to convict an individual based solely on eyewitness testimony. When new evidence is introduced or witnesses recant, a new trial should

automatically be granted. Lastly, we need a nationwide ban on the death penalty. One innocent man put to death is one too many. If we can’t be certain of the legitimacy of the convictions, the practice must be halted. We need to follow the lead of states like Illinois where, in July 2011, the death penalty was abolished and the state’s death row cleared, after widely reported - and proven claims that police tortured nearly a dozen of the inmates waiting to be executed and forced them to confess to the crimes. We may never learn the truth about Davis’ innocence or guilt, but we do have an opportunity to correct the legal system so that we no longer have to worry about whether or not our legal system has condemned an innocent man to death.

GARLAND HISPANO CHAMBER

CITY STORIES

Diane XAVIER EDITOR

With the Hispanic community in North Texas growing at an ever increasing number, the Garland Hispano Chamber of Commerce wants to unite and connect with each other in order to help this growth reach its full economic potential. Here in Garland, the Latino population accounts for 48 percent of the total population. This was the backdrop as the Garland Hispano Chamber of Commerce hosted its first ever Hispanic Heritage Banquet last week at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on George Bush Freeway. Garland Hispano Chamber of Commerce, other business and community leaders, along with the Garland Mayor Ronald Jones and members of the City Council celebrated this special time with a nice banquet, dances, music and folklore. Mayor Jones said he supports the efforts of the Hispano Chamber of Commerce 100 percent. “We are a community as a whole,” Mayor Jones said. “We are not separate from each other. The city of Garland is a very diverse city and for change to happen and move in the right direction, we must work together.” “We have a growing population with the Hispanic community here and they play a huge role in it,” said Dee Dee Bates, President

a part of this redemption. The present ministry of Christ has been neglected by most Christians. So many, when they think of His giving His life for us that they think only of His death and Resurrection. They do not know that when He sat down on the Father’s right hand that He began to live for us in as much reality as He had died for us. But, He is no longer the lowly man of Galilee. He is not the Son made Sin for us, forsaken of God. He is the Lord of all. He has conquered Satan, sin and disease. He has conquered death. He possesses all authority in Heaven and earth. Jesus promised power to the believers.”Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matt. 28:18. In reality, we can act fearlessly upon His Word, because He stands back of it. “By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament?”He is the Surety of this new covenant. Hebrews 7:22 Christ became the guarantee that the benefits of the new covenant would be given to all men who meet the terms. In this sense He is the mediator. I thank God for

DID THE CAT GET YOUR TONGUE? The old saying “Cat got your tongue” refers to when a person is not talking or not having anything to say, particularly when asked a question. The person’s silence might be attributed to any reason ranging from shyness or fear, guilt or suspicion to simply a lack of knowledge or understanding concerning the matter. Though the saying became popular in the 1800’s, no one knows the true origin of this saying. However, there are many myths. One myth traces the origin to a Middle Eastern custom where liars were punished by having their tongues cut out and given to the King’s cat for their daily meal (askville.amazon.com). Myth or not, the thought of this gruesome scenario would be enough to silence any chatterbox very quickly! However, regardless of the saying’s origins, most of us have probably had this odd question posed to us at one time or another. As a very shy young child, I can recall a few times being asked by my mother or other adults, “Did the cat get your tongue?” This was usually asked whenever I didn’t respond to a question. Consequently, being a timid young child with a vivid imagination, I took the question literally. I envisioned a large cat somehow snatching my tongue away! Once while visiting Big Mama in east Texas, mama took us kids to visit Mrs. Green who was Big Mama’s neighbor and friend. Mrs. Green was an elderly woman with a serious demeanor. She appeared to me as someone who had no time for foolishness. She was always very busy and devoted to doing her work. On the day of our visit, Mrs. Green asked me a question about something. I don’t recall the nature of the question, but I do recall that I didn’t answer her. This of course led her to ask me that “fearful” second question, “Did the cat get your tongue?” This time my reply was not a verbal response but rather a visual action. I quickly opened my mouth and stuck out my tongue, proving to her that no cat had taken it! And thankfully, it was still very much intact! Many Christians today behave as timid children when it comes to spreading God’s word. They are silent. One might ask them the question, “Did the cat get your tongue?” However, God expect his people to reveal that their tongues are still intact and usable! God’s Divine Plan reminds us as believers that he has entrusted us with His Great Commission, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone”, Mark 16:15. Finally, we must remember that we are God’s ambassadors (2 Cor. 5:20). Just as a young child revealed by her actions that the “cat did not take her tongue”, believers must do the same. We can do so by boldly proclaiming God’s word!

Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers.
