It is amazing how uneducated our educated class is.  Very sad that the longer you stay in school the less you know about certain parts of life, human nature, economics and how the world works.

It's amazing how close a 'bad area' can be to the financial district and the government buildings.  Everyone (almost everyone) seems to know and no one seems to care or do anything about it.  cf. Mayor Lightbrain.

This young lady knew no better.  She was saying things, studying things and writing things that pleased her peers and the department and institution where she wished to get an advanced degree.  That seems admirable - even if it was all wrong.  Going there was perhaps an attempt to learn and get the story right.  I'll bet she never read an opposing view, not one article by Heather MacDonald for example taking down the race based false claims of the Left with hard facts.

This young woman studied crime from the point of view of us being too hard on the offenders.  But simple math tells you that when the shootings and the murder rates go up 80% in a year, we aren't being too hard on perps; we are making life awful for victims, who also mostly black, though color shouldn't matter.

I was hit by a car and left to die along the side of the road in my youth.  Ouch, but the first part of it was accidental, and I lived.  Stitched up in a hospital after a knife-based attempted mugging on another occasion. Dying from the intentional knife stabbing through your neck must really suck.  I wish she were here to tell others in "criminology' how bad that is and how hard we should try to stop it.

Cognitive Dissonance of the Left - Texas Democrats

Hat tip Instapundit.

Democratic legislators fled the state of Texas to prevent the large legislative majority from enacting a voting reform bill. They flew to Washington, D.C., where they rallied for ending the filibuster so that Democrats’ slim majority can pass a voting ‘reform’ bill.

COVID is God’s gift to the Left. [Laughs]... ripped the bandaid off who he is and what he stands for... we have a chance to harness that anger and make a difference.
