Since the death of Michael Brown, a very strange thing has been revealed about the left. Democratic politicians, liberal media pundits, “unbiased” reporters, and fanatical bloggers have all turned out to know much more about proper policing than you might have guessed. They are, one and all, able to make snap judgments about any and all criminal situations, even in the absence of a shred of evidence. If all of these liberals would stop worrying about politics and go to the police academy, just imagine what kind of an awesome law enforcement community we could have!
The latest case to attract the left’s attention is the untimely death of Sandra Bland. Nervous that the Black Lives Matter movement might peter out without another sensational story, they have latched onto Bland’s arrest and subsequent suicide with their typical disregard for the facts. Though there is not a single stitch of evidence to suggest that Bland was murdered by the Texas police who arrested and jailed her, liberals have decided that this is their next big case.
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, normally hesitant to fall one way or the other on issues of controversy, jumped to remark on Bland’s death. “My heart breaks at seeing another young African-American life lost too soon,” Clinton said in a statement. “Sandra Bland has a bright future ahead of her, and it is particularly tragic that she lost her life just as she was to start her new career.”
Had Clinton stopped there, she might only be accused of her usual brand of political pandering. But she went further. “From what I’ve seen, the circumstances of this case are incredibly disturbing. I hope and expect that there will be a full investigation into this situation. It is also a tragic reminder of the ongoing systemic issues of race and justice in America that we must address with urgency, and we have to do more than talk – we have to take action.”
We Have to Take Action
Unfortunately, one can imagine the kind of “action” Clinton has in mind for this nation’s police officers. The left has decided that police in America are racist and brutal, and that our overcrowded prisons are a direct result of systematic bigotry on the part of the justice system. If things are that wrong, it will take more than body cameras to turn things around. It will take a full dismantling of the justice system from the inside out. And Clinton appears well-prepared to carry those plans to fruition.
Clinton (like Obama) believes that criminals are the heroes and police are the enemies. She believes the law is unjust and the arrested are the oppressed. She will go to unprecedented lengths to remedy this situation, stealing power from police and allowing criminals to go unpunished. Liberals are ready to take aim at the final pillar holding America in place – the rule of law. And when that’s gone…
…well, there are no words.
