Sometimes the inept and corrupt must face extra-judicial consequences. From Tom Luongo at tomluongo.com:
UPDATE: Mea Culpa, this is not news. But an historical reminder of what happens when the people get fed up with a corrupt government incapable of serving their interests.
Rememeber this? The president of Argentina has left the building. According to the Daily Mail 20 years ago :
President Fernando De la Rua resigned and fled the government palace in a helicopter, driven from office by a devastating economic crisis and days of rioting that left 22 people dead and homes and supermarkets across Argentina ransacked.
Fast forward to today:
This is the news: Police faced rioters with stones this week.
This is what the face of real anger and desperation in the face of a government that is equal parts corrupt and inept looks like.
No one wants to see this kind of abuse of any other human being. It’s anathema to life itself. But everyone makes a choice. The police choose to put on their uniforms and riot shields to enforce immoral orders while the people make the choice to stand up to it.
