Ticked off...

....I don't presume to speak for the families of the Dallas officers killed and maimed by the shooter last night, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of them had a decidedly unprintable view of Governor Dayton and President Obama for their public statements claiming institutional racism was definitely in play--and that before the body was even cold or the investigation really got going.

I know my response to Governor Dayton and President Obama in this regard is this: thanks, idiots.  And for those who have intimidated police into not proactively dealing with signs of crime:  thanks, idiots.  If we want to act as if black lives matter--and emphatically they do--that starts with dealing with and prosecuting real crimes, no matter who the perpetrator is.  It starts with respecting the process of investigation and not flying off the handle with your own pet theories.

Yes, I'm talking to you, Mr. Comey and Mrs. Lynch.  Yes, I'm talking to you, Mr. Dayton and Mr. Obama.

Agreed, dear sister. Lots of reason for disgust these days.
