|The face of #NextAmerica: Charles Williams|
Imagine a world in which convicted murders not only get out of prison, but get out of prison, continue on with their lifestyle then sue when their lifestyle catches up with them. We call this society, “New Jersey.” Donald Capriotti, 39, murdered Devon Whitehead, pled guilty to a lesser charge, and served 18 years of a 30-year sentence before being released in 2012. When Capriotti was pulled over by police in November of 2013 for outstanding warrants, he immediately fled on foot. He was believed to be armed. In the ensuing pursuit, Capriotti was shot several times by officers and a police dog was injured by gunfire as well. The now partially paralyzed Capriotti is suing for $27 million. An investigation continues into the incident. What was that saying in woodshop? Measure twice, cut one? More like aim twice, shoot once in this instance.
America in 2050 can be found in New Jersey 2014.
#NextAmerica: your future is nothing more than that found in the crumbling city of Camden.
