D.A. Antonio Jackson

D.A. Antonio JacksonMy life
was devoted to bringing
justice, to punishing the
wicked,
and upholding the standards
of the community. My
finest
hour was when I sent the
murderer Glenn Austen to
death row.
But my son was diagnosed
with schizophrenia, so
I quit
my office as the District
Attorney and devoted
myself
to his care. I studied the
working of the human brain,
damaged
and healthy. And I learned that
morality cannot be
divorced
from chemistry. I think of
all those I damned to prison
or worse,
and I recall the triumph
I felt when Austen went to
the chair.
I wonder if anything
I did helped anyone. I
doubt it.
My son was just another
big case that I had to win.
