Either we all are equal under the law or the law is not valid.  If we all could get a pass on child endangerment and weapons charges, fine.  But I suspect we non politician chuds cannot get the same deal.  So, the laws are invalid and the state of NY is basically a zone controlled by warlords willing to be despots.

Want legitimacy?  Just have everybody be equal under the law.  How hard is that?

Time for ALL crooked politicians on ALL sides to start serving sentences for abusing their Office. All of 'em. Catch and release, even with a tag on 'em (home confinement anklet) has never worked, EVER! Until they all hear the clank of the cell door locking, why should any politician anywhere ever care if they get caught? Same for dirty cops. No probation for Abuse of Office Offenders.

I liked Lovely Warren when she was first running. She was the candidate who seemed most likely to reform the RPD.

Looking back on it, that was probably true. Her opponents were probably likelier to grant more power to the Locusts.

Trouble is, now I understand we need to defund the police, not just reorganize them.

(Yes, Rochester police really are Locusts)

jst3p: Uhhh, subby? The "child endangerment" charges she she is skating on bother me more than the weapons charges, how about you?


The child endangerment charges are for having unsecured weapons, so I guess they're also technically weapons charges?

I dunno, if I'd submitted this, it would have been with a better headline.

I remember someone told me that in a previous Fark thread. Was that you? In any case, I'm grateful you remembered to mention it.
