TKC MUST READ!!! GUV GREITENS CRACKDOWN CONFRONTED WITH MINIMUM WAGE CUT OUTRAGE AS WORLD'S BEST HIP-HOP BLOGGER RIPS APART MISSOURI PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX PLAN!!!
Bol is TKC's blogging mentor and one of the greatest writers in Missouri since Mark Twain.
In his latest EPIC missive, he makes some bold connections and rips the latest effort to stop the killing in Missouri . . .
Byron Crawford - Addendum: The Crackdown Begins
Insight . . .
"The other day, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens announced that he’s pulling his own personal equivalent of “sending in the feds.” He’s ordering the state highway patrol to police the highways in the city, so the cops can focus on fighting crime in the neighborhoods.
"The thing is, city cops never policed the highways, or at least not any time that I can recall. Because the city needs people to come spend money downtown, and because obviously the police have better things they could be doing, they avoid pulling people over for traffic offenses, both on the streets and on highways, if at all possible.
"Therefore, siccing the highway patrol on people on highways in the city, probably mostly black people, will only result in way more people getting busted for bullshit crimes that don’t have anything to do with gun violence, like warrants for past traffic violations, which are epidemic here in the STL, or possession of small amounts of drugs that were clearly intended for personal use. The local jail population will probably skyrocket . . .
"At the press conference in which Greitens unveiled his brilliant plan to throw more people in jail without making the city any more safe, he could hardly be heard over shouts from people protesting the recently announced decrease in the minimum wage . . ."
Read the whole thing for an EPIC ALTERNATIVE take on the futility of this politically motivated move.
