Amazing thing what facts do to lies…https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2020/11/20/facts-about-crime-in-the-u-s/
I’m not sure but I think Ramirez is making a point about Senate Republicans acquitting Trump not once but twice after he was impeached. Once for colluding with a foreign power against the Biden family, once for inciting a domestic terrorist attack on our Capitol.
Every repug insurrectionist voted to censure Waters while blocking probes of their own acts.
We need a National Seditionists Registry, just like the National Sex Register. I want to know when traitors and insurrectionists move into my area.
How about gun control for starters? LOL! Yeah, I’m sure Mr. R will go for that.
Spout lies to make the weak minded afraid, then promise the Fascists will protect them. When and where has that happened before?
Well, first, you vote those criminals out of the White House. Then, you hold them accountable for their crimes. Start there.
Sentence in bottom left box applies to police officers engaging in criminal behaviour?
I think judges and those making parole decisions should be held responsible as well.
Gosh, so simple. Thank you so much for your clarity. I now see. People are either bad or good. Just lock up the bad people so the good people can go on with their good lives. The good people can go use their 1.2 guns for entertainment. I wonder if there are some nice ways to easily determine whether someone is bad or good? I bet the police know, letʻs ask them. You know, by just looking at a person. Thanks, Michael, for making this so simple that we can all see your flawless logic. You deserve a Nobel prize.
World’s highest mike drop.
What’s the incarceration rate in the US? What is it in other countries? Get serious, Ramirez.
Yes Ramierez, you are.
Of course Tiny didn’t pardon any criminals.
What kind of trip is Ramirez on here? Has he been in Henry Payne’s Shrooms?
Why isn’t criminal Trump, the head of the republican party, in prison?
Yep, idiots claim that crime is exploding because criminals are released and the police get all the blame.
Um this is some high level BS even for Ramirez. Only criminals I’ve seen not be held accountable and released from custody fit the following descriptions: White, privilege, of wealth, connected to politics, Stand your Ground, or have a judge apply silly logic of not wanting to ruin his future. Meanwhile, can’t say that much for Black, Brown, immigrant, non-Christian individuals since many don’t even make it to trial and if they do, judges love to max the sentence on them even for non-violent felonies. Yeah, Ramirez types are idiots.
Wearing a maga hat or helmet in front of a wise person will almost always elicit the “You are an idiot.” response.
Consider this cartoon in combination with the fact that the US holds a higher percentage of its citizens in prison than any other country.
So Breonna Taylor was a criminal who’d been released from the prisons? Ahmaud Arbery was a criminal? The soldier (sorry I can’t remember his name—there are too many) who slowed down, put on his turn signals, and pulled over in a well-lit area was a released criminal? Those poor cops, getting blamed for these people being Black!
That appears to be Rambo-mirez who is climbing the mountain, so the advice is accurate.
I don’t understand this one. We release criminals from prison and then blame the police? Not only is that nonsensical (the police have nothing to do with sentencing or parole), it flies in the face of US incarceration rates. Where are all these criminals we’re supposedly releasing early, when we’ve got criminals locked up for decades for minor nonviolent offenses?
We don’t often hold Congressmen and Congresswomen accountable, either.
Considering that the U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the whole world, just WTF is Ramirez thinking?
I vote for a one week “Purge” then start over.
In a nutshell. Good one.
Just which is the fool on the hill?
@DonnyTwoScoops – The Wise man is right on!!
That answer is a prime example of what the mountaintop Guru was answering.
I’m stumped by the premise. “We don’t hold criminals accountable . . . release them . . . .”
Seriously? How is it that a much larger percentage of our population is in prison than in any other country? And for that matter, while there are a couple of cities where (after years of decline) there’s been a spike in the crime rate, which some bleeding hearts may think has something to do with the uncertainties, privations, and hardships of the pandemic, and oh yes, the collapse of economic opportunities in once-thriving cities like Detroit.
We don’t hold criminals accountable? We have a huge of number of people in prison. What punishment is the author advocating that he seems to think goes without saying?
