Ouch! My Wrist!

8 Jan

This cool dude, last seen relaxing on TV in the United States Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi’s, chair, his foot comfortably propped upon her desk, takes a load off after having just broken into the United States Capitol Building… along with thousands of other hoodlums, thugs and gangbangers. (That is what you call a group of like minded, similarly dressed, gun toting doers of dirty deeds done dirt cheap…isn’t it?)

His name is Richard Barnett, 60, of Arkansas and he was arrested today and charged with “entering and remaining on restricted grounds, (Really? Gee officer, this guy entered my house and then…remained!) violent entry, and theft of public property”.

Lucky for him I guess. I don’t know what the potential penalties are for those crimes (if found guilty?) but he sure is fortunate that he wasn’t charged with “selling cigarettes illegally” or “not having his driver’s license” or “walking across the street in a lazy and unsteady manner”.

He should also thank God that he wasn’t “possibly under the influence of alcohol” or that he hadn’t just been accused of “passing a forged check”. And he can thank his lucky stars that he was dressed so appropriately when he committed these “Capitol” crimes and was not “wearing a dark hoody with hood deployed”.

And if someone, say a law enforcement officer, had gotten word that he might have been “carrying a gun” or had recently been seen “disturbing the peace” or “charging or menacing” some other police officer… he could really have gotten in trouble!

And he is equally quite fortuitous to be a citizen of the United States (although I really can’t tell without having seen his ID) who possess such an affable smile, ease of manner and unthreatening countenance… as opposed to not having those attributes.

And why is that?

Because in some cities, towns and boroughs in the United States of America all of those things are punishable by the death penalty!…Immediately and on the spot!

But don’t worry about Mr. Barnett… I’m sure you’ll be seeing him on interview shows and Go Fund Me sites soon!

Some guys just have all the luck!

    this lowlife is now in jail……hopefully Mr. Trump will follow him……….along with some of the local politicians here in FL, particularly that crook Senator Scott and Governor DeSantis.

    Regarding Wednesday, if these cretins were people of color, they’d have been hosed, stunned, shot, and possibly killed before they got near the Capitol. Mr. Barnett is one of the poster children for White privilege, or is it White Trash privilege?

    Awesome piece. I happen to know, however, that there were some very decent, if misguided, people in the group that descended on the Capital, though, so the characterization of them as “hoodlums, thugs and gangbangers” was uncharitable. Things are just going to get worse and worse in this country if we keep demonizing people we disagree with.

      I used those words to describe them (hoods, thugs and gangbangers) because those are the words that President Trump uses when he talks about those who protest him. And I know many Trump supporters who would like to see the protesters who were in D.C. and Portland etc…”shot down like dogs” and I do not appreciate it when the President refers to me (A Democrat) as “scum”. Everyone has the right to protest “PEACEFULLY” and not to be harmed unless THEY get violent first.

    He’s also lucky that he is white. Don’t forget that part.
