Shandre Delaney, mother of Dallas 6 member Carrington Keys and coordinator of the Justice for the Dallas 6 Support Campaign
“They say absolute power corrupts absolutely. Time and time again I see government officials in this sweet land of liberty abusing their power and taking advantage of those whom they have pledged to protect. They say justice is blind. Well I say, if this current system is based upon justice, then maybe we need justice with a vision. Justice that can see clearly because blind justice is only leading to destruction.” Carrington Keys
