Amidst his efforts to ruin the state’s economy, our bumbling, undistinguished governor has promised to team up with Attorney General Josh Stein and Chief Justice Anita Earls to eliminate all of the racism that purportedly infests North Carolina law enforcement.
There is a big problem with this announcement that the steno pool in the drive-by media and the Democrats don’t want to call our attention to. Let’s accept Roy Cooper’s premise that racism has been festering in the ranks of our law enforcement on a long-term basis. Roy Cooper was state attorney general — the state’s chief law enforcement officer — from 2000 to 2016. Cooper had the authority for sixteen years to do something to correct the situation. Why didn’t he do anything? (Probably the same reason he didn’t test all those rape kits, allowed all those people to be wrongly jailed, and let the crime lab become a bogged-down mess.)
Perhaps Ol’ Roy wants us to believe everything went to hell in a hand basket with the police after he became governor in 2016. (It could happen. Look at the unemployment office. Dale Folwell had that fixed during the McCrory administration. In less than four years, Cooper has allowed it to collapse into a nightmarish mess.).
That means the blame gets laid squarely on fellow Democrat Josh Stein’s head. If Stein conducts a serious probe and finds problems pre-2016, that’s a problem for Cooper.
Adding Anita Earls to the mix is a joke. She’s not exactly a symbol of racial healing. The race card is primarily responsible for getting her where she is today.
It’s a shame that slimy amoral politicians are going out of their way to make an already-tough job even harder for so many men and women who lay it all on the line every day to keep us and our property safe and secure.
