Odd… I thought we were all offered “Equal Protection Under the Law”.
Yet the officer (still not named) who shot Ashli Babbitt will not be charged. (Remember, she was in the Capitol building, but was unarmed and not a threat to anyone at the time of her shooting….) Note: Ms Babbitt is white….
But ther are Maslaughter charges agains the officer who shot a man who was resisting arrest on a warrant.…(his nme was Duante Wright…Her name is Kim Potter….He, of course, was black. She has been charged…..and will stand trial. He was resisting arrest….she made a mistake. But she is white and he is black.
Does Color make a difference here? I believe so. Politics? Yes.
Disparity? definitely…. Double standards? Absolutely. Are the circumstances the same? No, not exactly. But close enough to show the unfairness and political differences that drive our “Justice” system.
If yer gonna charge one (and I could argue either way) then charge the other…..but fer Chrissake, lets have some standards.
