Indiana AG to Open Fire on School Teachers

Police attack striking truck drives in Minneapolis, 1934
With a chilling echo of the days when state governments called out the police to attack striking workers, Indiana Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Cox has urged police to "use live ammunition" in dealing with fellow Wisconsinites. When asked to confirm his advice, Cox replied "You're damn right," no doubt assuring him of heroic status among the peace-loving teabaggers who urged "Second Amendment remedies" should they not get their way via the democratic process and who howled in incoherent rage at Civil Rights hero John Lewis. The Wisconsin demonstrators include school teachers, policemen, and fire fighters.

He's out of that job now.

So he free to move to Georgia and prosecute women who have illegal miscarriages, and help the state give them death sentences.

I am not making this up.

When is the rest of the world going to decide they need to do an intervention in the United States on behalf of civil and human rights for her citizens?

Love, c.

Foxessa beat me to it! I checked my email after supper a little while ago and found an email from PFAW reporting the Deputy AG's remarks and inviting readers to sign a letter to the Indiana governor and AG, but when you click on the link it takes you to a page announcing that the idiot had been fired.

Heh, heh! And a reporter punked Scott Walker, making the sucker believe he was talking to David Koch and catching him spewing all sorts of violent anti-union venom. It's been a good day for making the wingnuts look like the losers they are.

All right! J.C. (now there's a pair of undeserved initials if there ever was one) was too much even for Indiana. It speaks volumes, though, that he believed the climate was such that he could get away with twittering what he tweeted.

C, Georgia reminds me of the gravedigger scene in Hamlet, wherein the gravedigger announces that Hamlet as been sent to England because he is mad: "'Twill, a not be seen in him there; there the men
are as mad as he."

Madness in lunatics must not unwatched go, either.

BTW, the way that law is written forces women to prove a negative -- that they didn't intervene -- which is of course an impossibility.
