The Rule Of Law Is A Marvelous Thing, Unless It Fails The People

Is this what is coming in America? When it is blatantly obvious that some are above the law, are the good and not-so-good people of this country going to take matters into their own hands?

India Police Kill 4 Rape Suspects Already In Custody

Police said they needed to question the suspects at the crime scene — before daybreak — to have them retrace their steps and collect more evidence.

But by sunrise, all four suspects had been shot dead by police. They had yet to be charged.

"Law has done its duty," the top police official on the case, V.C. Sajjanar, told reporters at a news conference.

Not for the failures of violent crime tactics (although there are numerous failings on that front) but for the increasingly common assumption that there certain classes of people, namely politicians and the rich, who are actively protected by the government legal apparatus. They are afforded privileges to which we have no access. And even worse, that government legal apparatus has been weaponized for the craven political and financial desires of the chosen few.

How will this play out? Will the elites -- the Deep StateTM -- win out? Will they retain control of the whip hand of government and continue their campaign to cow into total submission the people of America? Or will there be a sea change? One that takes back the power to control our government, rather than be controlled?

I have no idea.
