Who are these people?!!!

We’ll get into what “people” I’m talking about after some background information first.

In case you haven’t heard, as reported by the BBC, “Wisconsin: Five dead after car ploughs into Waukesha Christmas parade.”

“At least five people have been killed and more than 40 injured after a car ploughed into a Christmas parade in the US state of Wisconsin, police say.”

“School bands and a dance troupe of grannies were among those marching through the city of Waukesha when a red SUV came speeding down the road.”

“It hit dozens of people, including children.”

“One person (Darrell Brooks) is in custody. The incident does not appear “at this time” to be an act of terrorism, one official said.”

“The suspect appeared to have been fleeing another scene, when he ran into people at the parade, the law enforcement official, who is familiar with the early findings of the investigation, told the BBC’s US partner CBS News.”

“Local resident Angelito Tenorio told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper he had just finished marching in the parade when the SUV ‘put the pedal to the metal and just [started] zooming full speed along the parade route’ at about (4:30 local time) on Sunday.

“‘Then we heard a loud bang, and just deafening cries and screams from people who are struck by the vehicle,’ he said.”

“Corey Montiho said his daughter’s dance team was hit by the SUV.”

“‘There were pom-poms and shoes and spilled hot chocolate everywhere. I had to go from one crumpled body to the other to find my daughter,’ he told the paper.”

“Sarah Saldivar, who was at the parade with her two young children, told CBS News she saw ‘a red blur’ and then saw ‘little girls flying through the air.’”

“Jason Kellner told the New York Times newspaper he had just watched his son go past with his school marching band when the car came towards the crowd and ‘started mowing people down.’”

“‘I’ve never felt a worse feeling; wondering what I’m going to find when I get to my kid,’ he said.”

“Mr. Kellner found his son standing unharmed at the side of the road, but saw several injured people and pulled a bloody saxophone off the street.”

“Mayor Shawn Reilly described the incident as a ‘horrible, senseless tragedy.’”

Yes, it was Mr. Mayor. It was a “horrible, senseless tragedy” that should never have happened, if the judges and prosecutors there had been doing their job, instead of being leftist political activists.

“‘I am deeply saddened to know that so many in our community went to a parade but ended up dealing with injury and heartache,’ he said.”

Yes, Mr. Mayor. These people now have to deal with “injury and heartache” thanks to public officials, who were supposed to be protecting them, but instead released this serial criminal back onto the streets to cause more harm.    

“Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff across the state in honor of the victims.”

Gee, thanks for that Governor Evers. You’re a real man of action.

So, when I ask, “Who are these people?” I’m referring the presiding judge, the district attorney, and the public prosecutors.

Who are these people who decided to ignore a rap sheet over 50 pages long?!

Who are these people who let this serial criminal out on bail three days earlier, after he tried to run down his baby momma with his car?!

Who are these people who agreed to lower his bail to a mere $1,000, so he could get back to terrorizing the community without delay?!

Who are these people who didn’t even feel it was appropriate to at least suspend his driver’s license?!

Who are these people who ignored the fact that he had an open warrant out for his arrest (in Arizona?), but decided to set him free anyway?!

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE, AND WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED TO ACT AS PROTECTORS OF THE CRIMINALS AND NOT AS PROTECTORS OF THE LAW ABIDING CITIZENS OF THEIR COMMUNITY?!

As I’ve stated in previous blogs, when is enough, enough?  A rap sheet 50 pages long?  At what point do we just recognize that a person is unable to live along side of us in our society…, after they are convicted 10 times?  20 times?  30 times?  Shouldn’t there be some kind of limit, as ridiculous as it may be?

This guy didn’t “slip through the cracks” of our justice system, he is typical of how our “justice” system operates now.

The Waukesha District Attorney now says that bail will be set so high he won’t be able to get out prior to his trial.

Well, thank you very much, but isn’t it a bit late now?  Thanks to you all, the damage has now already been done.

Perhaps the presiding judge, the DA, and the public prosecutor should have to walk out in front of the people and explain why this criminal was allowed to do the things he did, along with the Mayor, the police chief, and the fire chief?

Perhaps the judge, the DA, and the prosecutor should be held responsible for their pathetic and contemptible actions regarding this serial criminal?

Although, this sadly is nothing new.

Here are some of my prior blogs addressing the very same topic:

What ever happened to “three strikes and ‘yer’ out” dated June 23, 2020.

… and, Here we go, again! Dated January 26, 2021.

The news outlets continually point out these miscarriages of justice, but we never hear directly from the judges, the DAs, and the prosecutors.

Why not?

Why are they protected any more than we are?

It’s way past time we hold these judges, DAs, and prosecutors accountable for being accomplices in these hideous crimes.

It’s Trump’s fault!

Yes, my friends…, if anything, and I mean if ANYTHING happens that isn’t good, it’s President Trump’s fault…, and NOTHING he does is allowed to even be considered good.

I’m really getting bored with this liberal blame game that seems to be on a never-ending loop.

Can we just assume that President Trump is to blame for everything from now on so you liberals can just shut up?

I mean, your litany of lame excuses and shifting of all of the blame from yourselves onto President Trump is so disingenuous, very tiresome, and quite sickening as well.

democrat congresspeople, and, of course, the liberal propaganda media, blaming President Trump for all of their, and all of the world’s problems.

But remember, President Trump has only been in politics the last 3½ years.

So, racism wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Social justice wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Police brutality wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Crime rates, shootings and murders weren’t an issue in any of our big cities prior to 2017?

Criminal justice reforms weren’t an issue prior to 2017?

Economic opportunity in depressed areas of our country and our cities wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

In fact, these were all existing issues prior to 2017.

These have all been existing issues prior to 2017…, AND FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS!

The fact is, President Trump has done more to address these issues in the last 3½ years than had been done in the prior 50 years!

And I’m talking about actual positive actions…, not just lip service or promises.

You don’t believe me?

Let’s take a look at just a few of President Trump’s accomplishments.

 

Our economy, under President Trump’s direction, saw historic lows for African American unemployment and African American youth unemployment, as well as historic low unemployment rates for Latinos, Asians, and Women.

 

Nearly 8 million Americans have been lifted off of food stamps.  Indeed, the latest data from the Department of Agriculture shows that 7.7 million fewer Americans receive food stamps now than did when Trump entered the White House.

 

The poverty rate has fallen to its lowest level in nearly two decades, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau.

 

The First Step Act was promoted and signed into law by President Trump. This law shortens mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses. It also eases a federal “three strikes” rule, which currently imposes a life sentence for three or more convictions, and issues a 25-year sentence instead. Most consequentially, it expands the “drug safety-valve,” which would give judges more discretion to deviate from mandatory minimums when sentencing for nonviolent drug offenses.

Beyond sentencing reform, the First Step Act includes provisions that will improve conditions for current prisoners and address several laws that increased racial disparities in the federal prison system.

“We’re all better off when former inmates can receive and re-enter society as law-abiding, productive citizens,” Trump said in remarks endorsing the bill. “And, thanks to our booming economy, they now have a chance at more opportunities than they’ve ever had before.”

 

Opportunity Zones were created under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and signed into law by President Trump.  The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA,) known for creating Opportunity Zones, is often celebrated for its potential to move billions of dollars into low-income communities. However, there remains an open question as to whether this program will ultimately serve to add value, or extract values, from these communities.  Opportunity Zones (OZs) are defined as “economically-distressed communities where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment.” First conceived in April of 2018, OZ plans are now in place for communities in all 50 states this year.

 

President Trump signed a bill that will permanently provide more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), along with dozens of other institutions that serve large shares of minority students.  “When I took office, I promised to fight for HBCUs, and my administration continues to deliver,” Trump said. “A few months ago, funding for HBCUs was in jeopardy. But the White House and Congress came together and reached a historic agreement.”

 

H.R.1927: African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017.  This act recognizes the importance of the African American civil rights movement and those who made sacrifices for it. It authorizes the National Park Service to create a US Civil Rights Network, tying together relevant operations within the Service, that will be tasked with coordinating and facilitating projects to commemorate the history of that movement. The Network will operate for seven years, tending to relevant events and historical sites and developing and disseminating new educational materials on the issue.

 

H.R.1242: 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act.  This bill commemorates the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans in the English colonies in Virginia in 1619. It creates a 15-member commission, composed of government officials, members of civic societies, and historians, to be appointed within 120 days. The commission will plan, develop, and carry out activities recognizing and highlighting African-American history since that point in time, and it will be authorized to provide grants of up to $20,000 to support related activities at all levels.

 

H.R.267: Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park Act of 2017.  In 1992, the federal government recognized several sites associated with the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., as a collective national historic site. This bill adds one building, the former headquarters of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference that King co-founded, and upgrades the collective site to national park status—the first such entity in Georgia.

 

Presidential Proclamation 115: To Take Certain Actions under the African Growth and Opportunity Act and for Other Purposes.  This proclamation most significantly reverses Obama-era decisions to deny the African nations of Gambia and Swaziland duty-free trade access to American markets under the act named in the proclamation’s title. That access is contingent on maintaining or improving political freedoms and human rights standards.

 

H.R.2989: Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act.  This bill recognizes Douglass’s exceptional rise from slavery to the forefront of the American civil rights movement, as well as his vital role in abolitionism, contributions to the Union in the Civil War, and service in national government. It affirms that all Americans would benefit from learning more about and following the examples laid out by Douglass. The act creates a commission to plan and carry out federal activities to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his 1818 birth.

 

And there has never been a bigger supporter of the safety of American citizens, law enforcement, and our first responders, in The White House, than President Trump.  The lawlessness we see in our large, liberal, cities is a result of opposition to President Trump’s policies, not because of them.

Regarding New York City, specifically, Julia Musto of Fox News reports that, “Dan Bongino blasts liberal mayors blaming COVID-19 and Trump for violence: ‘This is pathetic.’”

“Liberal mayors’ attempts to blame violence over the Fourth of July weekend on the coronavirus and the Trump administration is ‘grotesque and pathetic,’ former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent Dan Bongino said Tuesday.”

“In an interview on ‘Fox & Friends,’ Bongino specifically called out Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.”

“The Democrat-run cities both saw spikes in violent crime over the holiday weekend. According to the Chicago Police Department, there were 87 people shot and 17 killed from July 2 to July 5. There were at least 44 shooting incidents and 10 dead in New York City as the Big Apple saw its surge in violence continue.”

‘“I heard Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago also trying to pin this on [President] Donald Trump somehow. How was this Donald Trump? And again, it was racist, of course. Everything is racist. God forbid you call out the fact that young Black children are being shot in the head,’ he remarked.”

‘“It’s not President Trump that did this. It’s that guy in City Hall, Bill de Blasio — your Communist mayor who has failed you and — as I said on this program and others, repeatedly for years now — people will die because of the arguments going on over public safety,’ Bongino concluded. ‘And, tragically, I was correct.’”

So, after decades upon decades of inaction and ineffectiveness by the “do nothing” political establishment, democrats and republicans, we are now told that all of these problems are President Trump’s fault, and that all of these politicians who have overseen these problems for decades and decades now suddenly have all the answers.

“We’re as mad as hell, and we’re not going to take this anymore!!!”

Jeff DeGraff, Ph. D. for Psychology Today writes, ‘“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore’ declared the longtime news anchor Howard Beale in the 1975 film classic ‘Network.’  In the picture [movie], people everywhere toss open their windows and repeat the catchphrase with a barbaric yell.  Sadly, Howard Beale, symbolic spokesman for the hoi polloi [the common people], comes to realize that the system co-opts both social and economic power to its own advantage. The movie is a parable about how all of our screaming really changes very little and in the act we often lose our voice.”

Fast forward to the year 2020.

According to Danielle Wallace of Fox News. “Texas police union voices outrage after recently released career criminal fatally stabs grandma, 80, in broad daylight.”

agranny 1

“A Texas career criminal who was recently released from jail despite being arrested nearly 70 times is accused of fatally stabbing an 80-year-old woman out shopping Saturday, police said.”

agranny 2

“The suspect, 38-year-old Randy Roszell Lewis, was shot and killed by a responding officer who was flagged down by witnesses at the scene. Police said the man was armed with the 6-inch blade.”

Thank God.

Thank God they killed this guy!

Thank God they killed this guy, or he probably would have been released again and killed someone else’s mother or grandmother!

What the hell is going on in this country?!

“The incident sparked outrage from the Houston Police Officers’ Union, which blamed the ‘total failure’ of criminal justice reform for his release weeks earlier — without paying bail.”

Being “outraged” is all well and good, and certainly justified…, but when are we going to move past being outraged and start demanding that people be held accountable for these all too often tragedies we see more and more of these days?

“Lewis allegedly stabbed 80-year-old Rosalie Cook in the chest as she returned to her car after shopping inside a Walgreens in Houston. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.”

“Her son, Chuck Cook, said his mother was a ‘perfect’ grandma to six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.”

‘“Nobody should have to go through this, an 80-year-old woman, disabled, who had to walk with a cane,’ Cook said.”

That’s exactly right, Mr. Cook.  This horrendous crime was completely avoidable, if not for a broken justice system and incompetent judges.

As American citizens, one of the most basic things we expect from our government is protection from individuals who refuse act in a civilized manner in our society.

We expect law enforcement to apprehend these offenders…, we expect the government to effectively prosecute these individuals, and we expect the judicial system to sentence those found guilty commensurate with their crime.

If for some reason the government fails at this, or balks at its responsibility, then we will start to see a breakdown in our society, and people will begin to take the law into their own hands…, and who could blame them?

“Police said officers were already in the area after receiving calls around 10:15 a.m. about a man matching Lewis’ description demanding money from shoppers at knife point by a nearby grocery store.”

“Two years ago, Lewis was charged with assaulting a public servant — breaking the person’s nose — while being transferred to county jail, KHOU reported.”

“In all, he had been arrested 67 times and has faced dozens of charges throughout his life, including assault, theft, trespassing, the possession of marijuana and burglary of a vehicle, the Houston Police Officers’ Union said.”

He’s been arrested 67 times and has faced dozens of charges.

‘“Randy Lewis should never have been free. Now an innocent woman has been murdered. Everyone deserves better. This is absolutely shameful,’ the Houston Police Officers’ Union tweeted Monday, sharing his public record.”

Exactly.  “Randy Lewis should never have been free.”

agranny 4

And it is “absolutely shameful” this poor woman was murdered.

But you know what’s more shameful?  The fact that no one is going to have to answer for her death beyond Randy Lewis.

Sure, Randy Lewis committed the murder…, but he had numerous accomplices in the justice system and government who will never face the music for their parts in this crime.

‘“The defendant had a history of mental illness and he should have been kept off the streets. He recently absconded from the personal-care facility where the judge ordered he live instead of being held in jail,’ the Houston District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.”

“The judge had not issued a warrant for his arrest even when he had absconded, so police did not even know to look for him and unfortunately this tragedy occurred before he could be returned to court.”

‘“Where’s the outrage when our cops are putting their lives on the line arresting the same person time and again who’s got a violent history,’ Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told KHOU.”

True…, but at least the police know they’re putting their lives on the line in the line of duty.  These judges are putting the lives of the rest of us on the line by their irresponsible actions, and we have no reason to expect this kind of malpractice.

“He said the department would review body camera and security footage of the incident. He added the officer who shot Lewis was a nine-year veteran of the force.”

Yes…, they should review the footage to determine how big of a medal he should get!

This officer did everyone a favor by putting an end to this walking piece of garbage.
