If One Standard Is Good, Two Must Be Better 0
At the Charlotte Observer, Isaac Bailey remarks on the irony of Republicans’ outrage over Donald Trump’s having been served with a legal warrant at Mar-a-Largo. A snippet:
Trump apologists can cry me a river about police overreach and aggressive tactics, particularly because many of them have had no problem when law enforcement invaded the homes of people they don’t like. They are quick to say that those on the wrong end of a cop’s gun must have done something to have deserved such treatment. They back the blue and severe criminal penalties and consequences when the system is used against their political and cultural enemies, most often black and brown Americans. But they scream bloody murder when the FBI follows protocol, attains a warrant and executes it without putting a gun in anyone’s face or filling their bodies with hot lead.
