Chris Hayes is speaking truth to power right now!!!!

He's talking about Epstein is not the only person who escapes justice
How the legal system, the media will know about these people and won't go after them
He name checked Harvey Weinstein, The Trump kids, and others for their corruption, how the DAs and media got stories and didn't pursue them
Manafort et al, these people commit crimes in the wide open

1. Epstein reminds me of "Eyes Wide Shut".

Thank you Chris Hayes.

2. I am helping someone right now through the legal system as a technician

(divorce case). He was not born in the US, English is not his first language, he has brown skin, he is poor.

He is being taken advantage of by the other party and the legal system. They don't expect him to have any leverage or power in the case, and are not treating him as they would someone with full legal representation.

I see and experience it every day.

3. Let me add Sandusky, US Women's Gymnastics team doctor, and of course...

The Catholic Church.

Corrupted systems of enablers.

5. It has been going on for thousands of years through religions and govts

around the world. Every society and culture has this ingrained in their system to such a degree that most of us don't even realize it. It will not change to any significant degree in our life times.

10. A lot of evil shit has persisted through the years, but that doesn't me we should be compelled to

allow it to continue. The entire point of life is to make the world better not shrug at evil.

12. You are absolutely right. If we give into the "this is the way it's always been done", we will never

progress.

The progress may be very slow and painful but still worthwhile. Perhaps in another 10,000 or 100,000 years we'll have societies with real justice. There'll still be some to hold the Lord Of The Flies like dump and others but ending up with 90% just and democratic would be fantastic.

20. It already has changed significantly in my lifetime. Long way to go, but go back 70 years.

Say 1950. Corruption was a given. An absolute given, that if you had money and/or friends, you had no problem with the authorities on any level.

The very concept of civil rights was "fringe". You could beat your wife and kids, you could drive drunk, and beating up gay guys was commendable. And a cop shooting a black guy? Hell, you didn't need to be a cop to walk away from that charge.

Still a long ways to go, I know. Lots of setbacks and atrocities. But at least now people NOTICE atrocities and injustice.


We have to keep on working, together. They have the money, the microphones, and, often, the cover of law. We have people, the good people, who won't rest until things are put right.

4. "In the wide open"

Why not?

Plenty of power behind the wall to help them out.

Here is the tweet Ponietz posted:


Lincoln's Bible
‏ @LincolnsBible

We cannot continue as a democracy w/ this level of criminality in a POTUS (past & present) & every corner of his administration.
Passing impeachment responsibilities onto voters tells every corrupt pol that they can run amok if getting enough votes.
THIS STRATEGY WILL DESTROY US.
