Whenever you hear about “crime falling,” think of this report, and thousands more, from around the country, by Colin Flaherty. Every time one of these riots takes place, the black rioters commit at the very least hundreds, and in this case thousands of crimes. From 1,000-2,000 young blacks at Mall St. Matthews were each guilty of disorderly conduct and felony criminal conspiracy (the riot had to have been planned, using computers and social media); hundreds were guilty of rioting; hundreds were guilty of trespassing, for refusing to leave stores, whose workers were trying to close them; hundreds were guilty variously of misdemeanor and felony assault; many were guilty of gang action; hundreds were guilty of vandalism and/or theft; and some guilty of attempted murder, and/or assault with a deadly weapon, and illegal weapons possession.
“When the disturbances began some store owners attempted to close, but some patrons refused to leave. Finally, management decided to close the entire mall early.”
Those weren’t patrons. A patron buys something in a store, and then leaves. They were trespassers and/or shoplifters.
“Several law enforcement agencies converged on the mall along with K-9s and a helicopter.”
Several agencies, K-9s, and a cop chopper? That was a massive deployment of possibly hundreds of policemen, at a cost of tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars. But it “never happened.” And yet, the victims will never forget it.
What happens to a victim with health insurance who goes to the doctor for treatment of wounds from the riot that, according to police never happened? Does his healthcare insurer refuse to cover the treatment? Could he be liable for arrest for health-care fraud? Whenever the people running social institutions refuse to do their duty, they cause cascading failures.
On Christmas Eve, Bernie Sanders claimed that it was “unacceptable” that blacks were being imprisoned six times as often as whites. I responded that it was, indeed, “unacceptable.”
