Ari Melber nails a terrible truth about our selectively blind justice system

As we led the world in Covid deaths with MAGA’s staunch, idiotic insistence on personal freedom for infectious assholes, we also lead the world in incarceration. Pretrial incarceration, which is spared our wealthiest citizens charged with felonies, is a violent, brutal, punishing, sometimes deadly world for poor people presumed innocent, locked up in hellish, overcrowded conditions prior to their trial, conviction and sentence. This torture is reserved for the poor and racial and ethnic minorities. Or as Bill Barr, our former culture warrior Attorney General, warned Blacks and Hispanics, in front of a law enfrorcement audience, you’d better obey law enforcement and respect them or they ain’t going to protect you, and shut up, there’s no such thing as systemic racism here you fucking whiners.

Ari Melber with a devastating report on the reality of Riker’s Island and our grotesquely unjust two tiered system of justice in exceptional America.
