IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES: Officials Knew Pulse Terrorist's Imam was Radicalizing Inmates, Did Nothing

By Karl Denninger

Where are the articles of impeachment?

Against them all.

Congress. Obama. The State Legislatures. The judges.

All of them.

I have written many times about the revolving door problem in our prisons.  There's a basic principle in our justice system that once you serve your time you've paid your debt to society.  This is how it should be, and it should apply across the board.  Yes, that means that when you get out and probation is done, it's done.

No more firearms restrictions, no more anything.


Because it focuses the mind, that's why.  Specifically, it focuses the mind of judges and parole boards on whether or not the person convicted remains a risk to society.

If you can't keep playing post-hoc games then you must evaluate the risk up front and when you're wrong it's blatantly obvious why and who's to blame.  That in turn means that the public and should rise and demand that the person(s) responsible be held accountable -- fired without pensions or even prosecuted if a negligence charge can be sustained.

A few years ago I wrote in the Ticker about a particular individual who shot a Marshal coming to serve a warrant on him.  His rap sheet included his first serious felony, carjacking (and resisting arrest), for which he went to prison.  He got out and then decided that sexual assault on a minor was a good idea, and went to prison again.

Subsequent to the second release he shot the Marshal.

Of course everyone wants to know why he had a gun.  My question is why he was on the street, since it proved that his first crime was not an aberration but rather a way of life -- by committing the second offense.

That Marshal should not be dead, but the indirect responsibility for it lies with everyone involved in that jackwad being released the second time, and thus in a position to shoot somebody.

Now here it appears we have an imam who prosecutors knew was radicalizing people in prison, they let him out, and...... the shooter in Orlando and he have been linked.

The gunman who murdered at least 50 people in a Florida nightclub early Sunday morning was a follower of a controversial gang leader-turned-bank robber who was released from prison last year despite warnings from prosecutors that he would recruit people to carry out violent acts, sources told

That's right, we let gang leaders who like to rob banks out of prison even after they try to radicalize people into Islam while in jail!

Are you freaking kidding me?

Folks, there is only one answer to this sort of crap since the government won't stop it: Everyone needs to start packing, all the time and everywhere and we must keep making noise on this point until the Second Amendment is respected nationally as written.

It is clear that so-called "law enforcement", "prosecutors" and "judges" will not do their jobs.  Nor will any other government agency just as they didn't before 9/11 when the FBI and other agencies had plenty of warnings they ignored and even better, a large number of the hijackers had Florida Driver Licenses despite not being either citizens or permanent residents!

Oh by the way, that's the ID they used to get on the planes.

The entire reason the Second Amendment exists is so that in the gravest extreme, no matter what sort of tyrant or jackass is trying to kill you, you can elect to have a fighting chance of living through the encounter.  The only means or device that works for this purpose on a reliable basis irrespective of your age, sex or physical prowess is a gun.

It is specifically because your right to be alive is pre-political (that is, it exists prior to and independent of any political system) and the government not only might not be able to but in this case through negligence, intentional misconduct or both has failed to take any sort of step to interdict known and emergent threats that the responsibility for same does and must fall first on you, individually.

Governor Scott, I call upon you, and the other governors of states that do not have "Constitutional Carry", to call your legislators back into emergency session (if necessary) right damn now and demand that same be passed, and that all laws restricting where someone may carry openly or concealed be immediately repealed except where said government is willing to provide full-time armed security (e.g. in a courtroom.)

Nothing else will do, and there is no compromise on this position.

You either can't or won't act even when you have foreknowledge as apparently was the case here and was the case on 9/11.  That, in turn, means that we the people, who are the ones who get shot and blown up by planes used as bombs must have our right to attempt to not die respected all the time, everywhere, without exception.

Pass the law and repeal the garbage, or resign and get the hell out of The People's House.

"It is specifically because your right to be alive is pre-political..."
This is the best argument I have ever heard of as to why government does not have the right to place any sort of boundaries or limitations on the Second Amendment...contrary to what HRC--supposedly the smartest woman in the world--appears to be saying. Simple and very much to the point! Dr. Bill
