Fort Worth is Up A Creek Without a Paddle With the Paradise Center Scandal blogging.
No justice, but try for some peace...??? said...
What does a community, or even a small group of individuals, do when they believe the public trust has been violated? To whom do we appeal for an investigation? What is the next step, Durango? A month or more of this blogging and still nothing? Seems the Paradise crew are moving on. Can't blame them, really. Gotta keep moving. Waiting for FW (Fort Worth) or TC (Tarrant County) to make things right seems fruitless.
The break-in of the Democrat National Headquarters at the Watergate occurred on June 17, 1972. Richard Nixon did not resign as president until August 9, 1974.
The Watergate Scandal had real newspapers, like the Washington Post, doing investigative journalism regarding what was behind the Watergate break-in. Even so, few paid attention. The majority believed the White House denials. Richard Nixon was re-elected in one of history's biggest landslides 5 months after the Watergate break-in.
It was not until after Nixon's second inauguration and the conviction in Judge Sirica's court of those who did the break-in, followed by the Senate televised hearings into the Watergate Scandal, that the majority of Americans began to pay attention and grow very disgusted at what ended up being the biggest political scandal in American history.
The Paradise Center Scandal is a small matter compared to Watergate. However, only those who perpetrated the crimes and coverup were hurt in Watergate. The Paradise Center Scandal has had real victims, real people hurt by the perpetrators of the Paradise Center Scandal.
I don't know if any legit journalist will ever look into the Paradise Center Scandal. I don't know what might be the next step in trying to bring to justice those who committed this very bad wrongdoing.
What I do know is that pretty much every day the Paradise Center Scandal blog has more visitors than it did the day before.
I also know, by looking at my Google stats, that this blog is being seen by people outside of Fort Worth and Tarrant County.
I also know that I am not going to shut up about this. When I feel like I've got some new info to share, I'll share it.
Because I truly totally believe there is something dire wrong with how the local government operates with no transparency, no accountability and, to me, no adults with common sense in charge. And no legitimate newspaper acting as the Fourth Estate, looking out for the welfare of The People, righting wrongs, fighting injustice and ferreting out corruption.
Sadly, righting wrongs, fighting injustice and ferreting out corruption just aren't the Fort Worth Way.
