The courts are corrupt.  We need Duterte's solution to judicial 
corruption and lawlessness.

The courts are no substitute for a disciplined police force - it is 
easier for judges to get away with wicked, abusive, and corrupt behavior 
than it is for police.  As for example patent law and the silicone lawsuits.

The various protections for criminals are part of an endless effort to 
get black conviction and imprisonment rates down to white levels, thus 
in practice these protections apply to black criminals, not to law 
abiding cishet whites.  Consider, for example the conviction of Martha 
Stewart, supposedly for insider trading - but what she was actually 
convicted of was obstruction of justice, which she obstructed by not 
confessing to things that they they could not prove her guilty of.

She sold a bunch of shares just before bad news hit, which is illegal if 
you know the bad news because of your insider position, and have 
neglected to make it public before you sell the adversely affected shares.

But they could not prove that she knew the bad news before she sold the 
shares, so she was in fact convicted for obstructing injustice, 
convicted her for not confessing to a crime that they plausibly 
suspected, but were never able to prove.

Compare the Martha Stewart case to a recent supreme court case, where 
some blacks in a car doing a drug deal drove in a reckless and dangerous 
manner, because they were distracted by the drug deal.  The supremes 
ruled that though police could ordinarily arrest them for dangerous 
driving, and, surprise surprise, find the drugs, it was improper to do 
that in this case because the dangerous driving arrest might be 
motivated by the fact that they saw them dealing drugs, and seeing them 
dealing drugs has been deemed insufficient grounds for search.

Had police not noticed the drug deal going down, then they could have 
arrested them for dangerous driving and found the drugs.  But because 
police saw the drug deal going down, the drugs that they found were 
ruled inadmissable.

If you are doing a characteristically black crime, police are not 
allowed to see what is right in front of them.  If you are suspected of 
doing a characteristically white middle class crime, you are subject to 
the most lawless and arbitrary inquisition.

Duterte for president in 2024!
