Speaking of 'ProCriminal'...

Posted on the 08 June 2011 by Mikeb302000
Let's try a thought experiment here.
Suppose a wealthy white man has a son who is arrested in a road rage incident.  Suppose this man's kid shot a gun at another motorist as they drove on a parkway.  And suppose this kid came within inches of killing the other motorist.
Pretty criminal behavior, right?
Prior to the trial, the wealthy man and his son tried to conceal where the kid worked and what he did for a living. Further, suppose that during the trial, the wealthy white man attempted to try to blame the kid's girlfriend for the shooting.  When that failed, the wealthy white man tried to claim his son had 'mental issues' in order to mitigate the kid's sentence.
Pretty criminal behavior, right?
When the kid gets 10 years in prison, both the father and son work hard to overturn laws preventing inmates from filing frivolous lawsuits which cost US taxpayers tens of millions of dollars each year.
Pretty criminal behavior, right?
It's not a hypothetical.  It's the NRA's President, David Keene.
