Our thorough discussion of Ryan Winkler’s tweet established that
Democrats have a strong personal belief, perhaps even a moral
conviction, that public safety is a government responsibility.
Our thorough discussion of the lawsuit against Minneapolis established
that when citizens suffer because government abandons its
responsibility, the citizens have no recourse under existing law.
You must rely on us; but you can’t rely on us. That’s Catch-22 and it’s
not a joke, it’s official policy.
So the obvious question is: When will Ryan Winkler introduce legislation
creating a right for citizens to sue the government for failing its
responsibility to protect them? And will the new law be retroactive to
cover the riots?
Ryan Winkler talked the talk, but will he walk the walk?
No point of Rep. Winkler’s career has been about “walking” any “walk”.
It’s been about pointing at others shortcomings, real or manufactured, and jumping up and down and pointing and flinging poo.
That should clarify things.
