I’ve been thinking about impunity. It’s why:
-Black Lives Matter and Antifa can burn down cities;
-Keith Ellison can orchestrate a lynching;
-Tim Walz can imprison the whole state for an entire year;
-someone in the Biden Administration can send troops to kick down doors
-China can humiliate our diplomats in Alaska;
-sex fiends and pedophiles can prey on victims for years;
-illegal immigrants can swarm our border.
When people know they can get away with bad behavior, they engage in
more of it. Swift punishment deters bad behavior. How can we restore
the deterrent necessary to end bad behavior?
A city without any political opposition, and a political system without any major media scrutiny, all lead to people acting with impunity.
