June 1980
National Review;6/13/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 12, p703
The article addresses the protest held by African Americans in response to racial tension in Miami, Florida. The tension did not begin with the death of Arthur McDuffie. Reportage has been influenced by the perception that the rioters were somehow engaged in a cognitive or communicative activity. The moral was not lost on the nation's mayors, each of whom seemed envious as he warned that his own city has all the wherewithal to stage another riot. The death of McDuffie appears to have been followed by a miscarriage of justice. However, the criminal justice system is in a sense designed to produce injustice in cases where guilt cannot be positively proved.
