Current events with commentary by Rabbi Avigdor Miller
Recently in the news:
Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., the black sheriff who fights crime in Milwaukee has been focused lately on what he calls “the myth of mass incarceration.”
Some social critics are pushing for reduced prison sentences and less punishment for drug offenses — even the mass release of convicts who are already behind bars. They are particularly focused on repealing the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, signed into law by President Bill Clinton, which increased mandatory minimum penalties and helped disproportionately fill U.S. prisons with black men.
“When you live in the ghetto,” Clarke observed at a recent convention about crime, “and you’re that single mom, and you’re working your tail off to keep your kid on the straight and narrow … You know you have to send your kid out into that street, and who is the first person he’s going to run into? The dope man. You find relief that we keep these individuals locked up.”
What do they care — compassion for the victims? People are killed every day because of the liberals.
From Happy World (#371):
Liberals don’t want to lose face (after all the masses still believe in religion; the masses still have some compassion), so the liberals take the worn out garment of “compassion” that they themselves have discarded. They don’t believe in compassion. What do they care — compassion for the victims? People are killed every day because of the liberals.
But what do they care, as long as they are putting on the false garment of compassion to find favor in the eyes of the foolish public who will still vote for them and still buy their New York Times and still give contributions to the ACLU. These dopes are helping people in order that murderers should be able to kill more people without being afraid of any kind of punishment. By logic there’s no reason why people should have compassion.
Because we believe in Hashem, Who created the world for kindliness, we say there is such a thing. Not compassion on murderers, not compassion on criminals.
