The True Story of Jogging while Black

Ann Coulter writes:
If you follow the news, you know that Arbery was the innocent black jogger chased down by three racist rednecks in Georgia and shot dead merely for “jogging while black.”

Arbery’s killers, Travis and Gregory McMichael, were convicted in about six minutes and sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole. Plus 20 years, just to be safe. Eight months later, they got bonus life sentences in separate federal hate crimes prosecutions. A neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., who happened to be there, got 35 years (state) plus life (federal).

Quite a turnabout for a case that three prosecutors refused to take after concluding there was no crime.

This is old news, but still an amazing example of how the news and courts favor Blacks.

Arbery was a Black criminal suspect who tried to kill a couple of White who confronted him, and died in the strugle. Possible the Whites acted on weak evidence, but they do not belong in prison. Coulter has new details on the injustice.

In another story, Ty Cobb and other great baseball players are being replace by Black minor leaguers in the record books.

Legally, I don't care what color a person is, I care what a person does.

Hate is not a crime, It is a emotion. You can hate, love, or be ambivalent about whoever you like and the state has no say whatsoever in the matter. I completely ignore the legality or legitimacy of any attempt of any government or regulating authority to punish a person for what they feel or think, as to support such a policy directly implies said government or regulating authority has the right to enforce particular feelings or thought, which they clearly do not. Crimes are actions with a clearly delineated perpetrator, and a victim, Not thoughts in someone's head. Hate Crimes are all basically racist versions of 'Let's punish them an additional amount the crime doesn't actually warrant under sentencing guidelines because we can pretend a feeling or thought is an additional crime'.

IF you kill as man for his wallet, or because you just didn't like his face, it makes no difference in what was done. Neither motivation is acceptable for murder, and you shouldn't be shoving the state into the ludicrous position of weighing people's hearts on a scale against the feather of Maat.

You can prosecute a crime as an actions someone did in the real world. Prosecuting a thought or an idea in a person's head is inherently evil and absurd, and encroaches into thought control.

So justice was done in this case is what you are saying. I agree.
