Blatantly Reposted from Ed Rasimus...

Because I could not say it better


We've all seen the cowboy movies with the outnumbered, but staunchly courageous sheriff standing up to the lynch mob. Justice will be served by a trial before a jury of peers in a court of law therefore we don't respond to mob justice. Those days of lynch mobs are gone, relegated to our distant and more violent past...except maybe in Kalifornia:No Hanging? We're Gonna Break Some Windows!

There was going to be a riot regardless of the verdict. Guilt of murder, guilty of manslaughter, not-guilty...it wouldn't make a difference in the activity on the street. A black man got shot by a white man. The black man had been involved in activities which resulted in a police intervention. The black man resisted the law enforcement officer at least to the extent that he was going to get Tazed.

The white policeman, however, was apparently not adequately trained for his position. He drew his pistol rather than his Taser and without discerning the difference in size, weight, configuration, position on his belt, etc he employed the pistol, killing the alleged criminal. Apparently basics like sight acquistion were not ingrained either or he might have noted the difference in equipment visually if not by feel.

The trial, with a change of venue, examined the evidence. It is unlikely that the rioters did the same. The judge explained the elements of the law which apply to murder in the first degree. There is no way that there could have been pre-meditation or malicious intent. There was manifest incompetence. The verdict reflected that conclusion.

So, quite predictably the culture of victimization rampant in the minority neighborhoods of America responded by complaining to the state. They did so by taking to the streets and victimizing innocent property owners who are totally unrelated to the events in question.

How's your justice thing working out?

And, along the way there is no sheriff in Alameda Country or Oakland California who was prepared to stand up to the crowd until after the damage was done. Who is surprised by this?

US v. AZ (2)

Alleged AG Eric Holder has field against the Arizona immigration law that seeks to enforce existing US immigration law, by saying that the commerce clause of the Constiution somehow protects the illegal movement of illegal felons across alleged borders, or some such twaddle.

I knew it was bad business the moment that the Odd Man-Child chose the man who granted Marc Rich pardon and defended terrosrists.

He won’t prosecute a blatant case of race-based voter intimidation in Philadelphia, but he’ll search high and low for non-existent racial profiling immigration incidents in Arizona.

Note: There is something so fundamentally wrong with this administration that it cannot be described under the normal courzse of business.

It is not incomeptence or inexperience. It is deliberate. And that raises questions that very few people have the guts to ask.

A Different Independence Day

Why does one end his own life? I have fond memories of playing guitar with Bill Ed, leading a retreat or two, and I always thought of him as a good friend. My prayers and sympathies to his family, parents, and friends. This loss is tragic.

RIP old friend.

US v. AZ

The Feral Gummint of the US sued Arizona today for passing a state law requiring enfocement of the feral laws on immigration. You know, the ones Barack, Nancy, Harry, and the rest of that lot of reprobates and fools refuse to enforce.

Has there ever been a clearer demonstration that the Feral Gummint of the US is at war with its citizenry?

I dare you to research the AZ border issue and see what is happening down there.

You know what to do in November.
