Tolerant, Hopeful, Distrust

Our Three word Wednesday prompt.  I wrote a haiku for each word

Tolerant until
Someone disagrees with me
Must be raving mad

Hopeful for justice
But only if the judgment
Matches my demands

Distrust is planted
Rashly cultivated--and
The innocent burn

I don't think they should burn or destroy things, unfortunately there are always people who take it too far because they can. Protest can be useful if not violent.

It is difficult to reason with mob violence. They erupt not of what is at hand but what had been long simmering within them. They are just taking the cue when opportunity presents itself. Great lines Lilibeth!

I don't know a lot about this case only from the net. There is a justice system for a reason. If you think there has been a travesty of justice there are ways of overturning the verdictl Riots and burning are not the answers.

All three haiku are an instant favourite. But the last line stands out the most, at least for me. Great work with the prompt.
