THE LAW & INJUSTICE - Mido Macia

Mido Macia:  A taxi driver originally from Mozambique, who was dragged to his death in August 2013.  Nine police officers were charged with his murder.  Mido Macia was handcuffed to the back of a police van and dragged behind the vehicle.  Despite sustaining multiple, severe injuries, he was thrown into a police cell.  Even though there was a clinic directly opposite the police station, he never received any medical attention and succumbed to his injuries in the cell the same day.  All the officers involved are, as of today, still free men.  The trial continues. This topic focuses on injustices committed by those whose obligation it is, to uphold the law;  dedicated from time to time to one particular incident which the author feels compelled to highlight.
