> It's good when the government and its workers are held accountable.

Holding them accountable has never and will never work,
anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional, brainwashed,
and hasn't read history.
The only solution is to get rid of Government, and don't emplace
a new one, problem solved, for all history.

> government workers.

Democrats and their fraudulent Democrat Fake News media...

tensions flared high as a flood of leftist journalists and
'blue-checks' on Twitter falsely reported that Bryant was unarmed.

    Media vs bodycam

Less than a day later, bodycam footage revealed that Bryant was
clearly wielding a knife - and about to stab the other black teen when
she was shot.
NBC News, however, continued peddling the 'unarmed' lie with a
deceptive edit of the 911 call to remove a reference to the attempted
stabbing, as well as the video - which NBC stops right before it's
apparent the teen is holding a knife.

And their violent Marxist buddies (who for once managed to utter
a true fact about the Dems Big Cities aka Dems ghettos)...
Biden is currently sending more military equipment to our
neighborhoods than Trump did. You read that right. Our communities are
being terrorized at a greater rate than they had been under Trump.

BLM, Dems, Reps, Labour, Govt, Pols, etc... all laughable and must go.

Nancy Pelosi, who said “Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your
life for justice” in her comments after the verdict in the Chauvin
trial was released.
Events of the last few days have made one thing crystal clear: The
Democratic Party (and therefore the nation) is being led by two
doddering old fools who should be domiciled in a rest home, not the
Oval Office and the Speaker’s Chamber.

Floyd’s death was due to an arrest which shouldn’t have happened and
bad police behavior that has nothing to do with race.

As to the former point, what should have been on trial in this case
was not “systemic racism”, but the Nanny State for grotesquely
excessive use of force to enforce a petty counterfeiting complaint
that should not be police business in the first place. It’s the job of
retail store owners to handle petty counterfeiters or people who
unknowingly pass bad greenbacks and to absorb the cost of
self-protection just like they do in the case of refusing charges on
bad credit cards.

So there is zero reason why George Floyd should ever have been arrested.

As to bad police behavior, you do not have to look too hard to see
that it’s essentially color-blind and that being non-black is no
guarantee against the same unjust fate.

During the same five-year period in which 104 black lives were lost, a
total of 127 unarmed white lives were wasted by the police, as well.
That included 32 white killings in 2015 followed by 22, 31, 23 and 19
in 2016 through 2019, respectively.

Overall, 302 unarmed citizens were killed by the police during those
five years, with the balance accounted for by 71 deaths among Hispanic
and other victims. That is, the real issue is illegal and excessive
police violence, not racial victimization.


In a word, some citizens sometimes can’t breathe their last breath
because in far too many instances liberty can’t breathe in today’s
unhinged Nanny State, either.
there were 9.3 million arrests
among this massive number of arrests, those involving serious crimes
against persons and property accounted for just 521,000 or 5.6%. These

    Negligent murder and manslaughter: 11,970;
    Rape: 25,205;
    Armed robbery: 88,128;
    Aggravated assault: 395,800;

That’s it. That’s the contribution to core public safety delivered by
the 850,000 sworn law enforcement officers in the USA—about 0.6
arrests per year for serious crimes per law enforcement officer.


Of course, don’t expect Nancy Pelosi or Sleepy Joe to be any more
enlightened on the matter than Sean Hannity. These doddering old fools
are now enthrall to the wokedom of the progressive-Left; and, as
Maxine Water’s blatant performance as agent provocateur in Minneapolis
the night before the verdict makes clear, these people want the
problem to fester and metastasize, not be alleviated.
Indeed, it is probably not too far fetched to say that Congresswoman
Waters’ call for a guilty verdict or else a new round of violent
uprisings amounted to an insurance policy. Three guilty verdicts could
not trigger the latter, but a judicial appeal resulting in a mistrial
order surely would.

In other words, the Democratic Party has fallen into the grip of
vicious leftist zealots and power-hungry authoritarians. And the
events of the last two days suggest that two dangerously wrong-headed
and ugly narratives—-race-baiting and climate hysteria— now stand at
the center of the Dem agenda because the party’s two supreme leaders
are too weak and too senile to resist the mob.

So we’d say to the feverish punters of Wall Street, yes, embrace the
putative Economic Boom impending and buy the Greatest Financial Bubble
in history, if you must.

But, really, if the events which culminated in Tuesday’s triumph of
mob justice do not scare the living bejesus out of you, then, well,
you probably deserve to suffer the thundering financial
gotterdammerung which is surely coming your way.

Now the USA is getting taxed over 50%, lol.

Government is the problem.

End it.
