This columnist has deliberately waited a while after the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict to comment on anything related, because that trial and verdict has been so polarizing, and people just know the headlines and what they are told on social media.Continue reading “Rittenhouse Verdict In Kenosha”
New York City just opened a ‘Supervised Injection Site’ where drug addicts and go to shoot up and be sure that someone is there to make sure they do so safely, have new needles and do not accidently overdose.
So, said another way, New York City is making sure that people feel safe committing what is still a crime in New York City. There was a time in our society when that was called “aiding and abetting a crime”.
In the wake of several ‘incidents’ of organized smash and grab robberies across California this week, the San Diego police department said it would not use the word “looting” because that was a racist term, and would use the term “organized robberies” instead.
By now, we have all heard of the incident in Waukesha, WI where a man plowed his vehicle into a small town Christmas parade, killing six people and wounding over fifty others, some critically.
The defendant, Darrell Brooks Jr., has a long history of violent criminal activity going back years and involving multiple convictions in multiple states. In early November, he was arrested again on a domestic violence charge.
John Chisholm is the Milwaukee County District Attorney who has championed “progressive justice reform” and has widely bragged that he was an early leader in the movement. His office recommended $1000 bail for Brooks in his most recent violent crime charge and Brooks was released just last Friday, two days before he plowed into the parade….after reportedly fleeing another domestic violence dispute.
A felon with a long history of violent crime, let out on bail of $1000 (why was he allowed bail at all?!) and within 48 hours, that felon had been involved in another domestic violence dispute and using his vehicle for a mass murder. THAT is progressive justice reform.
