The “Lancet” has removed a prematurely published article that had fraudulently exaggerated the risk of using hydroxychloroquine as a possible aid in reducing the harms done by Covid-19. How did a medical drug become a political issue? It seems, ONLY because President Trump had mentioned it as a possible treatment. This is symptomatic of a true Trump-hating derangement. What other facts have been altered that conform to this sickness of the mind?
Perhaps much of the current charges of “systemic racism” are part of this warpage. Consider the following:
Passions before brain are causing great damage to the innocent. Not only are the innocent harmed, one particular innocent serves directly as a major barrier between chaos and civilization. “The thin blue line” is being reduced to “The Threaded blue line.”
“Police brutality” they scream. But exactly like the racists they claim to hate, the raging passion is prejudging the entire police system for the sins of a very few. Not only that, but “systemic racism” is being charged against the very principles that have made America the unique-in-history powerhouse for good. Our founders’ wisdom formed a Country that became a melting pot for diversity’s opportunity to unify peacefully. No matter our differences, all were made equal in the sense that as individuals we are to be treated equally under our laws. This too is under attack by foolish passions misdirecting their wrath.
Statistics: Collected from the book by Heather Mac Donald “The War Against Cops”
“In 2005, the black homicide rate was over seven times the rate of whites and Hispanics combined, according to the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics. From 1976 to 2005, blacks committed over 52% of all murders in America. In 2006, the black arrest rate for most crimes was two to nearly three times black’s representation in the population. Blacks constituted 39.3 percent of all violent-crime arrests, including 56.3% of all robbery and 34.5% of all aggravated-assault arrests, and 29.4% of all property-crime arrests. The arrest data in 2013 were virtually the same.”
“The statistics on the race of criminals as reported by crime victims match the arrest data.” “No one has ever come up with a plausible argument as to why crime victims would be biased in their reports.”
As for overcharging? “In 1997, criminologists Robert Sampson and Janet Lauritsen reviewed the massive literature on charging and sentencing. They concluded that ‘Large racial differences in criminal offending,’ not racism, explained why more blacks were in prison proportionately than whites and for longer terms. A 1997 analysis of Georgia felony convictions, for example, found that blacks frequently received disproportionately lenient punishment.” “A 1994 Justice Department survey of felony cases from the country’s 75 largest urban areas discovered that blacks actually had a lower chance of prosecution following a felony than whites did and that they were less likely to be found guilty at trial. Following conviction, blacks were more likely to receive prison sentences, however – an outcome that reflected the gravity of their offenses as well as their criminal records.” Criminologist “Alfred Blumstein, found in 1993 that blacks were significantly underrepresented in prison for homicide compared with their presence in the arrest data.”
The issue is not Trump, the police, or the United States. The issue is that of cultural dysfunction. AIM at the real problem and stop creating new problems.
