A-merry-cans are fed up with crime folks, and pretty soon criminal defense lawyers like moi are going to go out of business. Why? Because A-merry-cans are starting to take the law into their own hands, that's why. Just like back in the day when the good old boys dispensed justice from the nearest tree (mostly on those Negroes for supposedly looking at their women), we have come full circle to a time when the sons and grand sons of those good ole boys are doing the dirty deeds, and making hit records about it.
In case you missed it, or didn't bother to check the link, that was red state heart throb, and the redneck rocker, Toby Keith, singing about lynching folks; and on "Comedy Central" no less. Seems he misses those "strange fruits" that used to hang from those Southern trees.
So when I see stories like the one about Ronnie White , who was murdered in his cell before going to trial. Or the one about Baron Pikes ,who was tasered to death while handcuffed in police custody, there is no way you can tell me that it's safe to be in the hands of the law anymore. ---And if you don't think that police shootings are up for a reason think again. I talk to some of these knuckle heads on a regular basis, and don't for a minute think that they aren't thinking the same thing.--- Yes sir, law enforcement has taken on a whole new meaning these days. And let's make no mistake folks, I am all for enforcing the law to the fullest; if the person accused of breaking it goes through the proper legal process. This is why we are a nation of laws right? We are a nation of laws aren't we?..... Oh, no, I take that back. We can't be. Not when the folks in the executive branch of our government are breaking laws left and right, and endorsing shit like torture. If the president and his staff is doing it, why shouldn't some small town cop, or a bunch of red necks, full of "Jack", and pissed off because Dale Jr. just lost the latest 500? And if they decide to take out the local uppity Negro; tough luck Negro, watch your mouth next time. Here in A-merry-ca we are fed up with crime and uppity Negroes. Ask Obama to save you.
"Grandpappy told my pappy back in my day, son A man had to answer for the wicked that he'd done Take all the rope in Texas Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys Hang them high in the street For all the people to see..."
Okay Toby, I hear ya. I bet your "Grandpappy" would be proud of A-merry-ca today.
