I wonder what would happen if a normal working class citizen word to keep $750,000.00 of government money intended for another purpose? We certainly wouldn’t be running for office, we would be sitting in jail where thieves belong. BUT... if you’re a scumbag thief and you have a badge to hide behind, well now that’s a different story.

And then we wonder why there is suddenly so much hatred and rage against cops, steadily increasing until it reaches the boiling point where cops are being gunned down in record numbers.

I guess justice is always served one way or another.
