Martin Berger -- US is Getting Torn Apart by Washington’s Policies

US is Getting Torn Apart by Washington’s Policies
Region: USA in the World
Today, if you take a look at the American media, you will immediately notice that the vast majority of articles are centered around two primary topics: constant, ruthless and often sponsored criticism of Russia and the resentment most American have towards the White House and its policies.
Never before America has been so deeply divided, and it seems that it can start coming apart at the seams, which has been clearly manifested over the course of the presidential campaign. The Important News would note:
Waves of anger, frustration, violence and civil unrest are starting to sweep across the United States, and political rallies for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump have become a focal point for releasing some of that energy.
This media source would point out that American politicians and the mainstream media have been pitting various groups against one another for years, which resulted in people’s hearts growing cold. Once you start dismantling fundamental institutions such as the family and the church, people start to behave in a predictably cruel way.
All across the country the number of violent crimes has been skyrocketing. In Chicago, the number of people that have been shot so far in 2016 is 50 percent higher than during the same period last year. Experts can not agree on what to call the recent rise in homicides, much less its cause, but new data has showed a sharp spike in homicide rates in more than 20 cities of the US, raising the question of whether it is time to sound the alarm.
However, instead of addressing the social concerns of the US population, authorities took the path of strengthening repressive measures against their fellow citizens.
It’s been reported by AlterNet that the NYPD announced its plans to stock more powerful and potent pepper spray, a step that has been opposed unanimously by activists and human rights organizations.
The source would note that only in the twisted minds of NYPD officials would “more powerful weapons” be a solution to prevent their officers from abusing their own power. Nevertheless, they claim that this would be intended to prevent police from shooting people.
The potency that has been used by the NYPD and other departments previously is already highly dangerous with a concentration of just .21% capsaicinoids. The new spray will be concentrated at .67 % which will undoubtedly be more dangerous and far more painful. The NYPD has already begun rolling out the new concentration and has equipped over 19,000 officers with the new mixture. The strongest pepper spray in the country is used by the Suffolk County Police Department, the US Marshals Service and the Boston Police Department, each of them using a pepper spray with a potency of 1.33%.
Therefore, it is hardly surprising that against the emergence of more potent pepper spray, human rights organizations in New York are accusing the city police of excessive abuse of power (the new plan to stock high potency pepper spray has been opposed unanimously by activists and human rights organizations).
This trend is developing against a background of US law enforcement agencies running away in terms of violating civil rights, Reuters would note. According to The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper, Federal prosecutors declined to bring charges against law enforcement officers in the United States facing allegations of civil rights violations in 96 percent of relevant cases between 1995 and 2015. Overall, prosecutors turned down 12,703 potential civil rights violations out of 13,233 total complaints. Those figures clearly show that the claims made by the Black Lives Matter movement have been relatively accurate all along.
As for those who are not tasked with the mission of upholding Washington’s “regime,” they are going to jail by hundreds, often without the slightest chance of proving their innocence. The Huffington Post would note that California has squandered hundreds of millions of tax dollars on faulty convictions that have led to people collectively wasting hundreds of years behind bars, according to a new report on the state’s criminal justice system. According to the report prepared by the Law School of the University of California, Berkeley, after examining 692 failed adult felony convictions that occurred in the state between 1989 and 2012, it was found that 700 individuals who were subjected to these failed prosecutions perhaps paid the ultimate price – collectively, they lost over 2,000 years in jails or prisons.
It’s not surprising then that the angry mob that threw rocks and bottles at police and Donald Trump supporters on May 27 wanted to get the attention of the national media. Now that the election is less than five months away, this kind of angry behavior is going to be repeated over and over again. Millions upon millions of young Americans have fully embraced the radical, and they are intent on making it clear that they are not afraid to use violence to advance their cause.
Under these conditions, most sober American analysts are asking the only logical question: If this is happening now, with the stock market growing and unemployment being a bit lower than it was during the depths of the last recession, what is going to happen when things start getting really bad? It’s hardly a secret that desperate people do desperate things, and if people are willing to hurl rocks because they are upset at a presidential candidate, what are they going to do when there is no food left for their families?
