It’s not just Hillary, of course. Politicians and corporate executives the world over escape justice on a daily basis. Although this has always been true to varying degrees throughout history, it’s the current in your face boldness of it all as the general public suffers from a rigged and broken economy, which is leading to populists movements all across the Western world. The latest example of elite immunity comes courtesy of America’s “special ally” across the pond: Great Britain.
During an altercation outside a club, a man pulled a gun and began firing indiscriminately into a crowd of onlookers. The bad guy struck no less than three innocent people before one of the innocents who was taking fire was able to use his legally carried firearm to stop the madness. The good guy wounded the would-be mass shooter before he was able to actually kill anyone. Fortunately, all of the shooter’s victims will survive, but if all of those club-goers had taken the left’s advice on personal protection, some would surely be dead.
These dog killings are, as Balko recognizes, “a side effect of the new SWAT, paramilitary focus in many police departments, which has supplanted the idea of being an ‘officer of the peace.’” Thus, whether you’re talking about the police shooting dogs or citizens, the mindset is the same: a rush to violence, abuse of power, fear for officer safety, poor training in how to de-escalate a situation and general carelessness.
What has become of the rule of law — no one is beneath its protections or above its requirements — when the American public can witness a game of political musical chairs orchestrated by Bill Clinton at an airport in a bizarre ruse to remove the criminal investigation of his wife from those legally responsible for making decisions about it?
"This is heightened hypocrisy at its finest. And we would expect nothing less" -- Obama’s drones have ‘officially’ killed more innocent people than mass shooters — despite paranoia surrounding gun control and propaganda about unhinged loose cannons shooting civilians en masse.
