Two Tales of Crime and Punishment

“Liberty and justice for all,” “Equal protection under the law” — Let’s have a look.

In the first instance:  You’re the owner of Toyo Automotive Parts factory in Franklin, Kentucky.  You’ve knowingly and willingly violated dozens of workers’ safety regulations, and this has caused one of your workers to get burned to death by flammable chemicals.

Your penalty?  At first it looks like you’ll be cited for sixteen violations, resulting in a fine of $105,500.  But don’t worry.  The Kentucky Labor Cabinet’s Department of Workplace Standards will dither, drop the ball, and all of your penalties will simply vanish.  Poof.  Gone.

We hope you’ve learned your lesson and will provide safer conditions for your workerbees.  Or not.

On the other hand, if you’ve been skateboarding on the wrong side of the street, four LAPD inbreds will go all Rodney King on you.

Ronald Weekley, Jr., a 19-year-old college student, was either on the wrong side of the street or Skateboarding While Black.  He now has a broken nose, broken cheekbone and a concussion after being held down and pummeled by LA’s Finest.

The “Wanted:  Dead or Alive” list — i.e. the names of the four LAPD thugs — hasn’t been publicized yet.  It’s also not known whether any disciplinary action will be taken against them.

Is there ANYBODY in the LAPD whose parents AREN’T first cousins?

This is how the South has developed such a reputation as being so employer friendly and attracting so many jobs.

No Pesky Unions
Lax Enforcement
Low taxes
Pollute us all you want
Labor Laws - yeah right!
Tax Breaks Galore

And the employers still stack the payrolls with Illegal Immigrants

as the report says we don't know what led up to them subduing him. He was running at the time not skateboarding. Was he fighting back or resisting arrest? You can't tell either from the video.
Just so you know it isn't only white cops doing it to black guys. I saw a black cop run up behind a white guy and throw him down hard to the hard floor in Penn Station and kneed him in the back while handcuffing him. Yeah the guy called him a effin idiot after he made him leave the waiting area without a ticket ,but it was obvious he was not mentally competent and was trying to catch some z's and the cop knew it too.
