Social Justice Verdict

December 01st, 2017 by Patrick Henry

Jury Finds Garcia Zarate Not Guilty In Steinle Murder Trial: My Initial Reaction | Powered by Robots

The illegal alien who murdered Kate Steinle got off.  Because he was an illegal alien; because she was so obviously a core American; because he murdered her for no real reason other than that she was a core American, and he was not; because his murdering was an inconvenient fact.

Justice was done.  Social justice was done.  He murdered her, but he did not social justice murder her.  So he is guilty, but he is not social justice guilty.  He walks free on all those charges.*

He has more rights in my country than I do. He has more rights in this country than you do.  We would not walk free.  We only have the right to  justice.  He has the right to social justice.

Who, whom.

We are the whom.

That is the definition of social justice.

America’s 200-year vacation from history is over.  It doesn’t matter if you agree or not.  Reality doesn’t need your consent.

Classical liberal regimes die this way.  The Right in Weimar Germany.  Both Right and Left in Republican Spain.  First their wacko fringes kill and go unpunished  Then the killings get organized.  Ultimately they get official.

*But not completely free, because hilariously the California jury couldn’t forgive the ritual impurity of handling a firearm.

W.B. Yeats
December 1, 2017

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming!

First, I think we need to point out its *not* okay to be white. Anyone who says it is secretly conspires with the KKK. Whites need to be removed, and it’s not *really* a crime to do so.

I just learned that the shot that killed Steinle was a ricochet. I can see how it might be hard to convict someone of murder in that circumstance. You would think at least manslaughter would stick, but he claimed it was an accidental discharge. With the “beyond reasonable doubt” standard, again a conviction might not be easy to come by under any circumstances. I’m not saying PC didn’t enter into it, but I don’t feel quite as bad as I did at first.

Regardless, the failure to turn him over to ICE was outrageous.

See, however, https://www.redstate.com/sarah-rumpf/2017/11/30/lied-kate-steinle-case/

“The main issue is that the defense was able to present a credible case that the shooting was an accident, and the prosecution aggressively overplayed their hand.”

The perp should not have been walking around in this country, and he shouldn’t have had or handled a gun. Arguing directly for lesser, but still serious charges (criminal negligence) might have produced different result.

My comment here from December 2015:

“The kind of population replacement currently taking place in America will inevitably lead to violent conflict, like that just beginning in Europe. Trump represents the last opportunity to stop it without violence.”

3 Nephi 20:16 Then shall ye, who are a remnant of the house of Jacob, go forth among them; and ye shall be in the midst of them who shall be many; and ye shall be among them as a lion among the beasts of the forest, and as a young lion among the flocks of sheep, who, if he goeth through both treadeth down and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.

Mormon 5:24 Therefore, repent ye, and humble yourselves before him, lest he shall come out in justice against you—lest a remnant of the seed of Jacob shall go forth among you as a lion, and tear you in pieces, and there is none to deliver.

The current modern assumption is that justice is the product of legal procedures; but when narrowly (in Pharisee fashion) pursued; this conflicts with common sense and leads to injustice – as our ancestors realised.

Bruce,

Interesting thoughts. In the case at hand, the perp was clearly guilty. The question was what specific crime(s) was he guilty of.

Your thoughts on justice are particularly interesting in the context of the current wave of sexual harassment cases, which are often “he said, she said” cases, but then a whole host of accusers and character witnesses comes forward.

“…but then a whole host of accusers and character witnesses comes forward.” – But the character and behaviour of the character witnesses must be good for them to have credibility. And known by experience to be good – not assumed on the basis of mere rumour and hearsay – which is all we ‘know’ about most people nowadays.

In response to Andrew E., a nation that needs a temporal savior as a desperate, last-ditch effort to prevent its imminent collapse…is a nation that is already dead.

Amen, Huston, amen!

On the issue of law and our rotten society, I have to return to Helaman 5:2-3:

2 For as their laws and their governments were established by the voice of the people, and they who chose evil were more numerous than they who chose good, therefore they were ripening for destruction, for the laws had become corrupted.

3 Yea, and this was not all; they were a stiffnecked people, insomuch that they could not be governed by the law nor justice, save it were to their destruction.

When society is rotten, law cannot save it. Which is sad for us lawyers.

“a nation that needs a temporal savior as a desperate, last-ditch effort to prevent its imminent collapse…is a nation that is already dead.”

As a general historical principle, I disagree. The world is fractal. As above, so below.

In the context you used it, yes, of course, but the problem is that I and my children still live here.
