Have Some More Disease

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Governor’s law enforcement committee asks the age-old question: Who watches the watchers?

The call for a special prosecutor sends up red flags for me.  Removing police prosecutions from local control adds a layer of insulation shields the special prosecutor from local oversight.  We already have a system of locally elected County Attorneys that has withstood the test of time.  Hennepin and Ramsey counties are politically deep blue so anybody elected County Attorney basically will be elected by Democrats, the party of the people, defenders of the downtrodden.  If local prosecutors are racist, it’s because the Democrats who elected them are racist in which case your problem is not with the local prosecutors, it’s with the DFL party and its voters.  Appoint more apparatchiks won’t change the racist attitudes of the appointers.

But it will add another office full of bureaucrats with AFSCME and MAPE memberships donating dues to the DFL.

If the DFL could find a way to sell the pelts of police abuse victims for political donations, they’d do it.

    No, it is structural racism. People can’t help being racist any more than a cowboy in a western can help being a cowboy in a western.
    The cure for racism lies with a group of gifted, politically powerful people, who stand outside of the narrative. Because they stand outside of the narrative, this group is able to fairly criticize society and act justly to correct it.
    The members of this group are called “ubermensch.”
