I think everyone will find this cringe worthy. They article states “The reason behind Gardner’s decision not to file charges was unknown.”, but who are they kidding.
It’s because they’re ok with people using firearms to hijack occupied vehicles on city streets, correct?
I mean, take out the detail about the vehicle being occupied by police officers, and that’s what this story is. It even states the suspect didn’t realize it was a patrol vehicle, and he fled when he realized they were police officers. Had it been a pizza guy instead of a police guy, it could have turned into a murder case.
But St. Louis is ok with that, I guess. They only hate guns when people use them to defend themselves.
This is the same prosecutor that charged the McCloskeys. It clarifies the rules: OK to use gun to carjack, not OK to stop a hostile mob of trespassers with a gun. St.Louis MO seems to have sailed into uncharted legal territory.
Speaking from hearsay, St Louis is going down the tubes fast. An acquaintance of mine(wife’s liberal coworker) had her purse stolen from a locked car, in a parking garage, in downtown St Louis. The police took her statement over the phone, emailed her a copy of the report, and that was it.
From other friends in the St Louis area, they claim the police don’t come downtown, unless there is a dead body. Even for a car wreck. The dispatcher sends an ambulance of necessary, and a tow truck. Again, this is hearsay. I haven’t personally experienced any of these scenarios.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy on full display in this Country …
The Cloward-Piven article called for “cadres of aggressive organizers” to use “demonstrations to create a climate of militancy.” Then, the authors predicted, the following would happen:
- Politicians, intimidated by threats of inner-city violence, would appeal to the federal government for help.
- Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, leftwing journalists, would float the idea of “a federal program of income redistribution” in the form of a guaranteed living income for all … working and non-working people alike.
- Local officials would clutch at this idea like drowning men to a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement it.
- With every major city erupting into chaos, Washington would have to act.
The strategy by Cloward-Piven also known as “Trojan Horse Initiatives” was written and published in 1966 I believe. And here we are living it.
We have to get some sort of “dereliction of duty” clause into these morons qualified immunity status – after all the immunity is qualified and should only apply to when you do your duty, not when you fail to do your duty. Soros is one of the largest terrorist masterminds this country has ever known.
