Should We Return to the Blood Feud?

Now all anyone needs are sufficient resources to hire lawyers, PR people and/or spin doctors, and they can literally get away with murder.

No solution is perfect, but if anyone thinks that our current legal system--the one that keeps the revolving doors at the courts and prisons spinning at warp speed--isn't complicit in maintaining a blood feud at least among our drug gangs, is seriously deluding themselves.

Add to that the cities and states who purposefully disarm the innocent, and I can't see anything good about the status quo. Then again I ain't got no fancy book learnin'; unlike our beloved Leaders.
