    Elsewhere, a 13 year old carjacker who robbed people at gunpoint, receives no jail time but plenty of support by the corrupt NOLA mayor.

    Breakdown In Civil Order

    Property crimes are crimes against people, as people own property. If some teenage car thieves steal your car, it is not the car that is the victim, it is you. Who here is saying that violent crime should not be prosecuted? Regardless of the race of the victim. But at the same time, that does...

    He is not willing to prosecute many crimes. Sure, he likes prosecuting political opponents and police officers. Other people, including gun criminals? Not so much.

    Breakdown In Civil Order

    I certainly wasn't claiming nothing even remotely close to your ridiculous straw man. Starting with the facile notion that murder rates are monocausal.

    Breakdown In Civil Order

    Jean Valjean lived approximately 2 centuries ago. He also is a fictional character. Brazil and RSA both have large populations of what we in the US would call "black" (both RSA and Brazil have a "mixed" category where I believe most of the US "one drop rule" blacks would be classified). So the...

    US student loans grotesquely high

    You want legality relationships between adults to be based on the whims of a jury, and not clear rules.

    Massive Demonstrations Happening In Iran

    And the people killed during the riots, did they have a "right to life"? People, including police, make mistakes. And yet, when a black guy is killed by police (or even kills himself while police are pursuing him) #BLMers have been rioting. They were not just protesting. They were rioting...

    Massive Demonstrations Happening In Iran

    Mosaddegh wasn't exactly a democrat himself, no matter how much revisionist history wants to make him into one. Not long before being deposed, he gave himself decree powers and stopped counting of votes so he would not lose the lead. Stealing US and British assets is also not good. If foreign...
