Remember when the folks in the right-wingnut media were blaming the president for the death of Fox Lake, Illinois, Lt. Charles "GI Joe" Gliniewicz ? Fox Views bombarded us with news clips, editorials, and sound bites from pundits about cops lives mattering, too. They screeched and squealed that the president and the black lives matter movement created a climate in this country that put a target on the backs of police officers.
Let's forget, for a minute, that police officer shootings are actually down this year, and that their hero, "GI Joe", was actually a fraud, and, quite possibly, a very bad person.
"More information is coming out about Joseph Gliniewicz, the Fox Lake officer who killed himself while everyone believed it was murder. And in addition to the criminal acts the local police have already revealed, Gliniewicz apparently wanted to put a hit on the village administrator.
A Lake County Sheriff’s Office spokesman revealed today that Gliniewicz was worried village administrator Anne Marrin would find out about his embezzling, and so he sent a text trying to set up a meeting with a “high-ranking gang member” to put a hit on her.
There was also a text about potentially planting something on her, possibly related to the cocaine investigators found in Gliniewicz’s desk." [Source]

Anyway, speaking of heroes to the people on the right, it might be time for someone to tell Dr. Ben to quit before he embarrasses himself more than he already has. I mean, seriously? Corn stored in the pyramids by Joseph? Rapping commercials to appeal to African America constituents? (Why don't you just give out free fried chicken while you are at it?) Throw in the story of knifing his classmate ("The violent episodes he has detailed in his book, in public statements and in interviews, include punching a classmate in the face with his hand wrapped around a lock, leaving a bloody three-inch gash in the boy's forehead; attempting to attack his own mother with a hammer following an argument over clothes; hurling a large rock at a boy, which broke the youth's glasses and smashed his nose; and, finally, thrusting a knife at the belly of his friend with such force that the blade snapped when it luckily struck a belt buckle covered by the boy's clothes.
"I was trying to kill somebody," ) and we have the makings of a real psycho on our hands.
And to think, this man is leading in the GOP primary. If that isn't enough to scare you about the people you share a county with I don't know what will.
