"Everyone is equal in the eyes of the law."
It is a lie that has been told so often we believe it. It makes sense until when you stop and look at the facts for a second.
Everyone is talking about *rump getting a "Special" Master that we could never get. Of course you can't! You do are not protected by the law.
I have said it here at DU before; US law is written, and practiced, to protect not prosecute people like *rump.
Don't believe it yet?
Think about the countless examples of laws that are broken by all demographic groups. Like drug abuse. How many rich white guys are in jail for drug crimes?
How many white people were shot dead by cops last year, compared to blacks who were shot? Answer: Blacks are twice as likely to be killed by police than white people. NBC NEWS
I could go on and on but the bottom line is that *rump will never serve a day in prison.
It's not right. But it is a fact. He has not only the protection of being white, well-known and wealthy, now *rump has the protection of being a republicant ex-POTUS.
All of the "law" protected *rump for years, before it protected him the entire time he was in office. It will protect him for long after.
I'm sorry. I hope like everyone here, that I'm dead wrong.
But I don't think I am.
Today is not first time *rump had a "legal win". It will not be his last.
