Let’s stop pretending.
When it becomes fairly clear that an Indigenous person has been murdered by a white person, why don’t we just take the money we’d spend on kangaroo court and give it to the grieving family?
“I’m sorry, but it looks like your child was murdered by someone we don’t like to convict. Here’s the money it would cost for the rest of the investigation and a three-week murder trial.”
As this would happen in approximately 68% of cases, it would clear our court systems and give the family some money to spend on something useful—say, clean drinking water.
