The Kleveland Kracker Korner
And The Angels Cried
By Paul Stanner
" All Rise " His voice shattered her reverie like a whisper in the library. She had been thinking about how strange it was that the biggest murder trial in the history of America would be starting during The Easter Season , the season of new life and renewed hope. Her name was Colleen Callahan and she was a brilliant Assistant U.S. Attorney who was on the fast track to a bright future. None of that mattered to her now. This case was too important to lose for reasons that had nothing to do with her career and she was very concerned that her abilities were not up to the task. Her Boss had no such misgivings about her abilities, motivation or dedication.
" Miss Callahan present your case please " " Your honor the facts of all of our victims lives are similar however the circumstances of their deaths are all exactly the same. Since there are way too many victims of this soulless vicious predatory killer to present here we will with your kind indulgence present the pertinent information of one victim and let her case speak for all the victims." " You may proceed Miss Callahan. "
" Michelle Harris was female. Michelle Harris was Black. She would have attended Princeton University. She would have had a long career as a Doctor. She would have discovered a cure for cancer. She would have had four children. She would have had ten grandchildren. One of her grandchildren would have become President and another would have become an astronaut. She would have been a devoted Mother and Wife. She would have done wondrous things for her community. Her husband would have negotiated a just and lasting peace in the Middle East. But it was not to be Your Honor for you see Michelle Harris was unwanted. She was given over to The Executioner Of Blood Commerce to do as he would with her."
And the Angels cried !!!
" There was no funeral Your Honor. Nobody cried , nobody sang a hymn , nobody sent flowers , nobody put up a sign of remembrance , nobody laid a teddy bear at a make shift shrine. Upon her death the Angels brought her to sit at the side of her maker where I pray that she has found peace and can find forgiveness in her heart."
" Your honor this Executioner is a particularly vicious , vile and evil predatory killer. His victims number in the millions. They come from all races and socieoe-economic strata of society although a disproportionate number are Black and female. They have names such as Harris , Chen , Nguyen , Radpal , O'Leary and Shapiro. His victims are also not just the human beings that lose their lives but you see Sir he also preys on women in frequently dire circumstances. He is soulless and without mercy Sir. The facts of his victims lives are always similar and the facts of his vicitms deaths are always exactly the same. "
" And always Sir the Angels cry !! "
" Your Honor this prosecution would like to ask you for mercy as you see fit for many of the women victims of this killer who preyed upon their dire circumstances. Many of them Sir truly did not know what they did. This prosecution strongly urges absolutely no mercy be shown to anybody that practiced The Executioners Art Of Blood Commerce. Our fervent hope is that you will consign them to the darkest corner of Hell for eternity."
"The Prosecution rests Your Honor. "
" Court is adjourned for jury deliberations "
All that was left for her to do now was wait for the verdict. She felt the need for for a good stiff drink. Her and her team adjourned to the local pub for lunch and a belt. They were there for barely an hour when they were summonsed back to court. The jury was in with their verdict.
" Court is in session. All Rise. " " Angels of the jury have you reached a verdict." Yes Your honor. In the matter of the women that were deceived by this Executioner we find them guilty but concur with the Prosecution's recommendation of mercy for most of them. In the matter of The Executioners Of Blood Commerce we find them ALL guilty of the most heinous genocide ever perpetrated against humanity. We concur with the prosecution that no mercy should be shown to them. " " Angels your verdict is accepted. As regards the women that you would like to show mercy to they will be reprimanded to my custody until such time as you get back from the job I'm about to give you at which time we will discuss their suitable punishment. As for The Executioners Of Blood Commerce please escort them to The Fallen One with my compliments. He is awaiting their arrival. Now remove this filth from my Courtroom. Court is adjourned. "
Two months after the conclusion of the trial Miss Callahan's Boss reassigned her to a new position. She is now the Lead Council and Executive Director of The Michelle Harris Memorial. The Yad Vashem Of The Unborn as it were . She has never been happier.
Michelle Harris has found forgiveness in her heart.
And the Angels cry no more.

Ladies and Gentlemen during this Easter season CNBC and I would like those of you that have had an abortion or worse yet those that have performed one to consider your answer to this question when your time comes. " Why did you make my Angels cry? "
