One of the reasons there’s an AGW Problem is that armed government workers are never held personally accountable for their atrocities. Imagine Hitler in the dock – had he been in the dock – and the German people put on the hook for the actions of Der Fuhrer.
The principle’s the same.
And so it was with an Arizona AGW named Tremaine Jackson, who was arrested last year for “pulling women over” – i.e., using the murderous threat of his government issued gun and badge – in order to sexually assault them. He was charged with 61 counts – probably a fraction of the total acts.
Well, no surprise, it seems the taxpayers of Maricopa County will be made to pay for Jackson’s crimes. A lawsuit has been filed that would hold the state/county “responsible” – not Jackson himself.
Which means the taxpayers will pay the scores of victims damages they didn’t cause.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to noodle out that if these “heroes” – now being replaced in the pantheon by health heroes – were held personally (as well as criminally) liable, and faced ruin unto the third generation – there might be less Hut! Hut! Hutting! and serial raping.
But – whoops – that serve and protect “civilians” . . . and neither of those things are in the interests of AGWs, despite what you read on the side of their cruisers.
