That Mr. Brian Hopkins gets elected. He posted a truthful and honest tweet. It’s true the difference for the rich and the poor are apparent. It’s just not fair how differently people are treated. I grew up poor in the south and have seen it up close. We always say it’s who you know and who you blow. If you have a lot of money and are well known you get special treatment. The rest of us can just rot in jail. I read a post today that said our justice system is just as bad as our health care system. Nothing could be more true.

Jan. Georgia please elect Mr Hopkins Y’all can get rid of large Marge too while you’re at it.

It's not just unfairness. It undermines the seriousness of what he is charged with. meadowlander Jun 2023 #1
