Hyperlinks: A Sunday morning stroll

If you read the New Yorker magazine, you most likely have read the story titled "The Price of a Life", written by Ariel Levy and published on the 13th of April, 2015. Here is how I found out about this gripping article and the tragedy it depicts.

Ready to indulge in the morning ritual. But no doughnut, no coffee. The sun, still yawning, is attempting to turn a dull sky into a watercolor painting. The world on the Internet is spewing its tweets at the speed of knots. Time to check the News. On the Guardian's website: No surprise in the Primary Election results. Ceasefire in Syria. The Oscars. Various Sports News. I click on the link: Two former Mexican presidents compare Donald Trump to Hitler. Not interesting, not interested. I get back to the first page as fast as I can. I then click on ‘I witnessed the birth of Isis’: how one film-maker captured the horror of Iraq. Article about "Only the Dead" a film by Australian reporter Michael Ware. Most interesting read. Back to the front page. I click on 'Shawshank' fugitive captured after 56 years on the run to be released. At the bottom of the page an other link to: Cleveland man wrongly imprisoned for 40 years sues officers who 'framed' him. A tragic story of an other man who was kept in jail for a crime he did not commit. Horrific. So sad. In the comments below the article someone writes a link to the story I eluded to at the beginning of this post. A look at the men and the system which send people to jail after fabricating evidence against the falsely accused, at the life of the wrongly sentenced while in prison and after their release. Their suffering and the suffering of their family.

Gripping in its tragedy. A bleak look at the not so Justice System. The kind of journalism I crave. And on the same subject Spotlight won the Oscar for BEST movie. There is SOME justice after all.
