    You're right, the crazy part is in just how complacent people are, how their eyes skip right past it in the news without the tiniest flicker of thought. No trace of compassion, never a thought to someone losing their child, never one iota of "What would happen to me in this situation"? It's a disgrace.

    I hear ya J and I understand but to me one of the great lies that people accept is that ole "violence never solved anything" canard. It solved the livin **** outta Hiroshima for example. Now I know it wouldn't be right for me to advocate it, but just for instance, if ole Ajit Pai was getting in his car this morning and, I dunno, his head just happened to fall off, it would probably help w/ the whole net neutrality embroglio.

    I have a hard time convincing myself that this isn't just another heavy handed way to throttle dissent via the interwebs. Yeah, we'll let you run wild overcharging people for Netflix, but you're gonna have to stifle some of that snark coming down about Melanoma's shoes and Donny's little hands.

    The "race" component is mostly blue-vs-everyone else. We have ramped up this militarization of police in this country and the vast majority of people are ok with it, unless and until it impacts their lives directly, then they are just shunted off into the "loudmouth kook" category with, yanno, "those" people. There is a lot to argue about vis-a-vis reasons, motives, blame, etc., but a large measure of it was fueled by urban white flight, diversity coming to insular suburbs and shortsighted Republicanesque policies (shared on both sides of the aisle) that there needed to be some way to keep people in their place, forcefully. "The Drug War", just that accepted name for it is telling, and don't think that the hypocisy isn't evident now that the opioid crisis impacts a lot of white zip codes that there isn't a war, they need help. Of course, ****ty cynical skeptic that I am, I ascribe a lot of that to the overt intent to take over the drug trade and divert all that cash from the hands of pot growers and cocaine cartels into the safely reliable hands of white corporate interests. If we have to sacrifice blue lives and their families the same way vets are thrown away once they're done protecting oil interests and the bottom line, well hell, that's just part of doing business. But I've been in the loudmouth kook category for a long time, I'm comfortable with that.

    Seriously, Google Castle Rock v Gonzalez, it is pretty stark.

    It's so unfair that they let 3/5ths of a person have a whole vote!
