680 Family Separations
Mississippi Hits Rock Bottom
Six hundred and eighty family separations by courageous defenders of freedom were carried out – as the invaders showed up for school armed with brightly colored book bags, and smiles. Or, as they arrived for work. For work. Living the Dream – and dreading the nightmare.
The authors of this tragedy made very clear that they have been planning these armed raids for months, but they gave no thought at all to the children – not even to how they would get home from school. That is child endangerment. The D.A. that was named, Hurst, could not be that stupid, to have never given thought to what would happen to the children; this is premeditated and intentional, and the D.A. acted willfully to abandon children and endanger them. And, they separated crying children from their parents, maybe for life, and they were monsters and didn’t care.
This is the clearest proof imaginable that the investigation was racist in intent and conception: They endangered small children, after planning for months, and never thought of the safety or welfare of the kids that would obviously be traumatized and left without care providers! Whether or not the District Attorney had a valid legal goal or purpose; they behaved monstrously to attempt to achieve it. And, they obviously committed crimes, crimes that could send a civilian to prison for life.
To me, these thoughtless, useless, stupid family separations in Mississippi are an act of mass terror; and should be treated as such.
This is another attempt by Trump and his followers to subvert and destroy the rule of law. It can’t be due process because it can’t be correct. In affect, these children have been punished without trial or legal representation. What was their crime?
Trump has enabled racism to proportions most of us thought were no longer possible. He is a cancer, and he must be stopped first. These are dark days. We’ve never looked blatant, murderous racism straight in the eye. At least, not in the last half-century.
Someone has to stand up for these children and their families. We have to start standing up for what we believe in.
This is atrocity. Those children were emotionally scarred for life. They were terrorized. We all were.
