This week, a 39-year-old black man in Waukesha, Wisconsin, plowed a maroon Ford Escape into a Christmas parade of children and older women. Five people were killed and another 48 were injured. The motive of the suspect is unknown; if the media have their way, it will remain that way. The media apparently only care about why suspects commit violent acts when motives can be credited to their political enemies.
There is one thing we do know: the suspect should not have been on the street. He had a rap sheet longer than the first five books of the Bible. His latest alleged crime took place on Nov. 5, when he was charged with resisting an officer, bail jumping, recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and battery. First, he allegedly slammed the mother of his child with his fist, and then ran her over -- wait for it -- in a maroon Ford Escape. He was released on Friday ... on $1,000 bail. Two days later, he ran his vehicle over innocent victims.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office has now opened an investigation into the low bail. But we already know just why the bail process allowed the suspect back out onto the street: equity demanded it. In May 2015, Jeffrey Toobin wrote in The New Yorker about "The Milwaukee Experiment." The piece was a long, sycophantic love letter to John Chisholm, the District Attorney of Milwaukee County, who had embraced criminal justice policies geared toward rectifying "the racial imbalance in American prisons." According to one of Chisholm's admirers, "Chisholm stuck his neck out there and started saying that prosecutors should also be judged by their success in reducing mass incarceration and achieving racial equality."
Not reducing crime. Reducing the number of people in jail -- and more particularly, the number of black Americans in jail. Chisholm himself admitted the costs of his policies in 2007: "Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into a treatment program, who's going to go out and kill somebody? You bet. Guaranteed. It's guaranteed to happen."
Chisholm, of course, was right.
San Francisco proved the same point this week when large, roving gangs began looting high-end stores. On Friday night, San Francisco's Union Square witnessed a massive group of looters smashing and grabbing at a Louis Vuitton store; meanwhile, thieves congregated to steal product in Walnut Creek, Pleasanton, Hayward and San Jose. None of this ought to be a surprise. San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced that he would end "mass incarceration" and cash bail; he stopped prosecuting shoplifting cases -- in 2020, just 44% of shoplifting cases were prosecuted.
The result: stores are closing down in San Francisco thanks to the automatic surcharge of people stealing their product from the shelves.
Reality with regard to criminality isn't all that complicated: when you free criminals unjustifiably in a misguided attempt to achieve "group equity," innocents suffer. When you take cops off the street, freeing criminals to work their will, innocents suffer. When you refuse to prosecute crime, criminals spot an opportunity.
Voters can either continue to deny reality and pay the price, or they can wake up to the simple fact that reality always wins. Until they do the latter, the criminals -- and the politicians who enable them -- will be the only winners.
Was that Ford Excape maroon or red?
That’s important in a case like this.
Like I said before, I would not be surprised if Joy Reid or some other hate filled democrat claimed that the people he hit were purposely jumping in his way to try and make the poor upstanding black man have a wreck. This would be a funny joke if it were not something that would surprise anyone if they did.
For lefturd loons, it’s society’s fault that blacks do what they do, so blacks need restorative justice, reparations, and black privilege.
Derp. If anyone wants to know the motive - ask me. Or anyone paying attention.
Just visited my old stomping grounds in the Bay Area a couple weeks ago. People in San Francisco and Alameda counties are seriously nuts and I think they’ll take even more of the growing lawlessness. But I really think that the wealthy white, Asian, and South Asian limousine liberals in places
Like Santa Clara, Contra Costa, and Solano counties aren’t going to put up with looting in their communities. I predict a law and order backlash. I’m not saying they’re going to go Republican, but I think we’ll see tougher ordinances,
Enforcement of existing law, and election of law and order DAs
What blew me away (not really) was hearing a news report which described the event as “a crash” amidst a “holiday parade” in the same sentence.
Still not sure who the bimbo I heard works for…
Most of the media bimbos are calling it a “Holiday Parade” when in fact it was a CHRISTMAS PARADE.
Even the senile old bimbo in the White House cannot even mention the word Christmas.
“Last night, the people of Waukesha were gathered to celebrate the start of a season of hope, togetherness and thanksgiving,” Biden said at the White House. “This morning, Jill and I — and the entire Biden family and I’m sure all of us — pray that that same spirit is going to embrace and lift up all the victims of this tragedy, bringing comfort to those recovering from the injuries and wrapping the families of those that die in the support of their community.”
More importantly, was it "maroon" or "Maroon", or was it "red" or "Red"?
It was red, not maroon.
that wouldn’t surprise me from that Witch.
Actually it depends on from which angle you look at it. I saw it more as red when they showed the car on FOX
“Crash” was most outrageous.
