The cult of Police worship in America is as evangelical as their Christianity.
The new details emerging from the horror of the Texas mass murder of school children has up-ended America’s fall back position when confronted with the regularity of mass shootings which is ‘more good men with guns will beat bad people with guns’.
Not in Texas apparently…
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said during a press conference in Uvalde that he was “misled” about the police response to the shooting at the Robb Elementary School.
He said the information that he provided at a press conference two days ago was a recitation of what law enforcement had told him in a room beforehand.
He said he’s livid that some of that information has turned out to be wrong and he expects law enforcement to thoroughly investigate what happened.
…the culture of Police worship sells them all as heroes who bend the rules to nab the bad guys. They are the brutal bulwark against those left behind by a ruthlessly capitalist society and those huddled frightened under Police protection don’t care how many are killed for their sense of protection.
For these héros to stand by while children are shot is almost as shocking to America as the inability to have a rational debate about gun laws.
Put aside the failings of these Police in determining the management of an active shooter vs a barricaded one because that doesn’t answer the base issue at hand, which is that teenagers shouldn’t be able to buy bloody machine guns!
When Clinton banned assault rifles in 1994, mass shootings dropped by 43%.
After Republicans let the ban expire in 2004, mass shootings increased by 243%.
Stop. Selling. Machine-guns. To. Teenagers.
