Minnesota's new "victim" class

Apr 7, 2013 Full story: Star Tribune 23

The latest cause clbre for prominent lawyers and judges in Minneapolis is the rights of a new, disenfranchised class of victims who, we're told, can't vote, serve on juries, or - in some cases - live in public housing.

Who’s this new victim class? Murderers, robbers, rapists, and dealers and users of illegal drugs — in short, convicted felons.

People incarcerated for felonies are disproportionately black, the argument goes, so laws that deprive felons of certain civil rights that law-abiding citizens enjoy are the racist equivalent of poll taxes in the Jim Crow South.

"People incarcerated for felonies are disproportionately black, the argument goes, so laws that deprive felons of certain civil rights that law-abiding citizens enjoy are the racist equivalent of poll taxes in the Jim Crow South."

What a ridiculous bunch of nonsense. And why is it that people incarcerated for felonies are disproportionately black? Maybe someone should do some studies. Maybe Obama will donate 5% of his salary to that cause. Jackson and Sharpton can donate as well.

But they don't want to find the cause of this problem. They only want to create yet another victim class to yell discrimination whenever they feel picked on.

Slewpid people tell the rich how they should spend their money all the time. It's called the "progressive" tax structure.

If slewpid people don't want to contribute to finding out why so many blacks are being disproportionately incarcerated, they surely must be racist.

Most racists are by default bigots as well.

Slew probably voted under each of the monikers used! Would think it is okay to do as well! As long as they vote Democrat that is.

If you're planning a "surprise" strike, don't blab it to the press the day before. Kind of defeats the purpose.

Bushwhacker-

OUCH, the lying, senile, old "guy" dishonestly shortened a quote to make a SHINY NEW LIE !!!

"At least one store was unable to open for lack of employees this morning."

I freely challenge the little troll, or anyone else for that matter, to demonstrate that even one store was closed down by this so called strike. I already did the google search for "how many fast food stores closed due to surprise strike" and didn't locate any reference, on the three links that came up, showing any actual numbers on how many stores were closed or even crippled by this. Their strike was ineffective because they are, like all of us, not indispensable. For better or for worse, fast food workers are a dime a dozen. But he/she/it will not accept the challenge. The troll will simply continue to fling insults and nonsense thereby increasing it's already massive lack of credibility.
