It was a final act straight out of The Crucible, Arthur Miller's
McCarthy-era recounting of the Salem Witch-Hunt.
Ten Black Atlanta educators stood before white Fulton County Judge Jerry
Baxter for sentencing. They has been found guilty of violating the

super-conspiracy law pushed by Richard Nixon that --supposedly-- applied
only to mafia dons and hitmen.
In an "only in America" Alice-In-Wonderland moment, two of those already
found guilty were allowed to withdraw their not-guilty pleads, confess
their sins, and receive slap-on-the-wrist sentences. One got a year-long
7:00PM-7:00AM at-home curfew, plus probation. The other about 50 days of
weekend detention, and probation. Both gave up their right to appeal.
