A very rich and prominent business man was having a party at his 10,000 square foot home to celebrate the success of his latest business venture. As it was summer time, everyone was outside around his olympic size pool drinking their cocktails, and congratulating the rich business man on his latest success. Many of his guests, while praising this man, verbalized how envious of his success they were, so much so that, towards the end of the evening the rich business man-made a challenge to all of his guests. “If there is anyone that can swim across my pool and make it to the other side in one piece, then that person can have half of my fortune,” the rich business man stated. Disbelieving that he would offer such an easy challenge, many of the guests started peeling off their clothes down to where they could swim unhindered, and, as they did so, the rich business man pushed a button that opened a door under the water and out came several great big sharks! Everyone gasped when they saw the sharks swimming in the pool.
Then the rich business man threw in a mass of dead fish, and the sharks went into a mad frenzy fighting for their fair share of the juicy fish thrown to feed them. Water splashed everywhere, and the guests looked on with open mouths as they inched back from the water. All of a sudden there was a splash at the side of the pool, and here was a guest in the water ready, it appeared, to take on the challenge. The sharks began to swim to him thinking he was more food and so the man took off diving under this shark, hitting another shark that tried to attack him striking the shark in the eye. On he continued, hitting and kicking the sharks that tried to attack him, diving under, swimming over, and fighting his way through, across the pool until he finally made it to the other side, and fought off another shark as he pulled himself out of the pool, in one piece, with only minor bites and injuries to himself.
The rich business man went over to the fellow that met his challenge and offered him half of all his riches. The man, out of breath, suffering many minor bites and injuries, turned to the rich business man and refused his offer stating, “Sir, I don’t want any of your money.” The rich business man was astounded, his mouth dropped open in shock, and he protested, “But you met my challenge, you swam across the pool, and you’re still in one piece?” The fellow that swam across the pool turned to the rich business man again and stated, “I don’t want any of your riches, but I sure would like to know who the jerk was that pushed me into your pool!” LOL!
The movie, “The Conspirator,” tells the tale of a time when President Lincoln was assassinated and the following court hearing to determine who would be held responsible for such a dastardly deed. As I watched, mainly for the insight on this historic event, which has some quite graphic violence included initially, I became glued to my television with the unfolding of all that occurred at that time. My interest escalated as the higher political characters resorted to holding a woman accountable as a major conspirator to this tragic affair, and my anger soared as I witnessed the portrayal of a very dysfunctional judicial system such as it existed back in the day. As I continued to watch this incredible movie, produced by Robert Redford, my blood began to boil as I observed the shenanigans’ of the higher powers that be, for that time, in the way they manipulated events to be brought to a conclusion that had nothing to do with true justice or the way our forefathers intended true justice to evolve. Not wanting to give away all that took place in this incredibly powerful movie of historic events, such adverse coercion and manipulation, apart from what the facts determinately showed, reminded me of current times. I can’t reiterate how many times I have received stories of injustice, violation of civil rights, and unethical familiarities that have led to legal and judicial decisions that had nothing to do with the evidence presented, the testimonies given, or the truth of what actually existed. Sadly, in this movie, with each witness that presented themselves on the stand, coerced by the prosecutor to say that which they desired to hear, apart from what the truth actually was, poor Mary Surratt took the fall, as no more than an example, for a son so despicable that he wouldn’t step forward to save his mother and take the blame for which he was justly worthy of. Leaving, probably, the only truth-seeking, defending, attorney that ever existed, to wallow in a shattered life as a result of his committment to fighting for what he truly believed was, and appeared to be, the truth, Mary Surratt’s innocence. This is a truly great movie, produced by one of our greatest actors ever, but it tells of horrors that continue to exist in our judicial and legal system today.
