This is my concern. What good will it do for Trump and the DOJ to go after the "protesters" if prosecutors release them without charge or charge them very lightly; if the judges just give them a slap on the wrist because they're ideologically aligned? No country can function if the laws are not applied equally.
National level Democrats and the media HATE America just as much as Antifa does.
Domestic terrorism charges are quite appropriate for many of these "protestors". They are objectively, and undeniably, using violence and intimidation to achieve political objectives. That is the very dictionary definition of terrorism.
Umm ... but muh private company [Deloitte] ... they can do what they want.
There is NO chance I would vote to convict this woman. Had she fired her gun at the family, that's another story; but I wouldn't convict her for just displaying (yes, by pointing) the gun and being prepared. In another time, I might vote to convict, but not in the current environment.
I know most states have laws that even displaying the gun is a crime, but those laws were written for a civilized society, which America no longer is.
In this instance, it's crystal clear the mother and daughter were TRYING to provoke a confrontation. If I was a betting man, I'd wager that the daughter INTENTIONALLY bumped the white woman (just as she intentionally thumped the car as it was trying to leave, which is when the gun came out) to give her an excuse to DEMAND an apology from a "white person". There were two racists involved in that encounter - the mother and daughter.
On the face of it it's ridiculous that the STL couple are facing criminal charges. But, I'm kinda okay with it too. They bent the knee to BLM, so they're getting what they deserve.
As for the mayor, she behaved exactly as I expected. All the protests, rioting, looting, and CHAZ aren't a problem because they didn't impact HER ... personally. As soon as SHE is bothered, then it's outrage.
There is NO reason for ANY "white" person to feel guilt about slavery - unless that white person PERSONALLY owned slaves or participated in the slave trade.
Nor are any living black people due ANY reparations for past "wrongs". Today's blacks were not slaves in America and today's whites were not slave owners.
The ONLY way I would be willing to accept the idea of reparations would be to "repair" the results of slavery FULLY. And that means any black person accepting reparation monies MUST be returned to Africa and sign a legally binding document that rescinds their US citizenship and excludes them from any consideration to return to America, at any time, in perpetuity.
The Atlanta mayor's statement that the streets wouldn't be any less safe is absurd on its face. If fewer police can keep the streets just as safe as more police, why is the city employing more police?!? That would appear to be a complete waste of money. No, the truth is, more police does keep the streets safer.
A fat lot of good it does to arrest him when the judicial system will release him on "no bail" and then won't punish him in court ... because he's just "a jogger" and dindunuffin wrong. If it was a white young man you shoved an elderly black woman he'd be charged with a hate crime, not afforded release awaiting trial, and prosecuted to the max.
This segment demonstrates why THINKING people question the "scientific" (which includes the medical community) community - it has been corrupted by political activists.
We, and I use the collective "we", have elected and appointed political activist officials throughout our government. They ONLY believe in "enforcing the law" when it harms their political opponents.
The institutional pillars of society have broken down; lawlessness is at hand. The "government" refuses to do the job for which it is hired and paid; making it an illegitimate entity. As the Declaration of Independence states - "...whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends [the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness], it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it..."
Arm yourselves fellas, it's the only protection you have. And if the police, which refuse to do their job, tries to selectively single you out for defending yourself, it's time to defend yourself against the illegitimate police as well.
