That's The Way You Do It

Remember the rioting that broke out in Washington DC during PDT's inauguration? I'll bet that most of them thought they could get away with it. And among those that were arrested, I'll bet most of them thought they'd get some not-too-large fine, or parole, or community service.

Yeah, well, maybe not:

A grand jury in the Superior Court of D.C. returned a superseding indictment in the Inauguration Day felony rioting case Thursday, the U.S. Attorney's Office of D.C. reports...Approximately 212 people face felony charges...Additional charges have been added to some of the defendants cases, including destruction of property involving damage to a limousine.

The way to stop rioting is by vigorous, aggressive police action. Of course, everybody knows this. The mayor of Baltimore knows this. The mayor of Ferguson knows this. Even that adipose porker who runs Berkeley knows this. But they chose to not make any attempt to restrain the rioting because, bottom line, they have more sympathy for the goals and aspirations of the circus freak show rioters than they do with law-abiding citizens, i.e. normal people of their communities. So the cities burned.

I only wish there was a way to tell the normal people, "hey, the authorities are not on your side. They will sit back and watch you and everything you've built burn if it means they can further their agenda."

You would think Berkeley would at least be receptive, but the people there keep electing the same crew year after year. And pride themselves on how progressive they are.
