Power + Lack Of Accountability = Atrocity. And If Atrocities Aren't Prosecuted They Will Happen Again.

This post outlines a bunch of reasons why power + lack of accountability leads to atrocities.
Ferguson: Was ‘Witness 40’ even there?
Chris Hayes examines the strange case of the witness who admitted to racist thoughts and statements and was allowed to testify to the Darren Wilson grand jury despite substantial holes in her story. 


African Americans and ‘superhumanization bias’
Darren Wilson’s testimony describing Michael Brown’s almost superhuman strength reflects common, subconscious perceptions about black people in America.
Nobody uses choke hold techniques from martial arts, they use it from wrestling. I believe its called the sleeper hold or something like that, i.e. putting a guy "sleep" is part of the goal of that move.
Sigh! Now he's describing a technique Jackie Chan uses in the Drunken Master.
That's the Fox News thing, as per their political strategy, to call every crime clear of racism if actual racist words aren't uttered. As per the strategy outlined by this guy:

Exclusive: Lee Atwater’s Infamous 1981 Interview on the Southern Strategy 
Seeing Rudy Giuliani again reminded me of this strange incident that wasn't covered by the media (like the Texas fertilizer plant bombing which happened the same week as the Boston Marathon bombing) - here is Rudy explaining (before running away) howhe knew a building was going to fall but was surprised that it imploded... 
Above Video:He admits the buildings imploded in a surprising fashion and that he knew they would collapse that day "over a period of time". Never happened before, but he says the way other buildings collapse.

Interesting testimony: Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Fire Commissioner Thomas Von Essen inside building 7
So, despite a building never haven fallen so bizarrely before, the building that Rudy Giuliani seemed to have visited fell exactly like a controlled demolition. Watch

The Republicans Protect This System & All The Flaws In It Without Question Because ...

1. It's part of thier political strategy that they have been using for the last 50 years (since Nixon)

Nixon’s bigger crime: Southern strategy - He gave racist Democrats a place to go

What Is the Southern Strategy?

(this advice is still being used by the GOP & Fox News today!)


2. This last time the GOP administration committed so many crimes in office that the lack of accountability is the only thing keeping the majority of them out of jail (like Cheney)

The most glaring example is that of the lies involved in pushing for the invasion of Iraq which turned out to be a ponzi scheme for Cheney to make money through Halliburton using the resources and lives of the American taxpayer (lives of soldier citizens)

"Why We Did It" - The Invasion of Iraq  
Bill actually went out of his way to lie to help Cheney make money from the invasion for oilas the following extracts from this article show...

• O'Reilly falsely claimed Bush didn't oppose 9-11 Commission. O'Reilly defended President George W. Bush from a Kerry-Edwards '04 TV ad highlighting Bush's opposition to creation of the 9-11 Commission by denying that Bush had ever opposed the commission. In fact, Bush did oppose the creation of the 9-11 Commission. (10/21/04)

• O'Reilly falsely claimed Iraq had ricin. O'Reilly responded to a caller to his radio show by defending the Iraq war: "They did have ricin up there in the north -- so why are you discounting that so much?" In fact, the Duelfer report (the final report of the Iraqi Survey Group, led by Charles A. Duelfer, which conducted the search for weapons in Iraq following the U.S.-led invasion) indicates that Iraq did not have ricin. (10/19/04)

• O'Reilly repeated discredited claims on Iraq-Al Qaeda link. O'Reilly interrupted a former Clinton administration official who tried to correct the record on O'Reilly's claim that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi constitutes a direct link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein's Iraq. He also allowed a conservative guest to repeat without challenge other discredited claims about Iraq's supposed involvement in terrorism -- claims O'Reilly has himself cited in the past. (9/27/04)
