One of the hallmarks of Dictatorships and Third World Nation is the political use of criminals.
In failing or failed states, is common for the leadership to put the most violent criminals in positions of power. They are made into secret police or torturers where they can used their god given talents of scaring and hurting people to enforce the whims of the dictator in charge.
Remember that the evil Prince Humperdink hired a brute squad out of thugs and ruffians to enforce his edicts.
When the rule of law no longer matters, criminals stop being a liability and become an asset to a government that only seeks to hold power. Criminals are pardoned and given free reign to take advantage of the people as long as they support the tyrants in charge.
Welcome to the Banana Republic of California.
The possession and sale of marijuana is still a federal crime. California doesn’t care, California doesn’t care, California legalized it at the state level.
But it gets worse.
In California, a criminal record can prevent you from obtaining a liquor license but give you a leg up in obtaining a permit to deal dope. What gives?
It’s all part of an effort in the Golden State to help more minorities become “marijuana entrepreneurs.” On New Year’s Day, California became the ninth state to legalize cannabis for recreational use, but officials are worried that not enough blacks will qualify for the permits needed to sell weed legally. To address this “problem,” Los Angeles, Oakland and other cities have created “equity programs” that offer no-interest loans and other perks to people who live in poor black neighborhoods and have been convicted of drug crimes. If you’re a white applicant, you can improve your own chances of receiving a permit by “incubating” an equity applicant, which means making him a 50% partner in the business or giving him floor space in your establishment, rent-free.
Yes, you read that right.
In a dreadful combination of third world tyrannical thuggishness and progressive identity politics, black people with criminal convictions are given loans and preferential treatment to open pot shops to sell recreational marijuana in total defiance of federal law.
California has decided to create a marijuana dispensary brute squad.
It is said that this is to correct for black people being punished for simple possession of marijuana in the war on drugs. Remember that California also pleads down a lot of criminals for the same reason. The guy who accepted a charge of simple possession might very well have been up to a lot of really bad shit and was plead down to simple possession to avoid a trial.
I am sure the legislators who wrote this bill know this.
California is rapidly becoming a third world banana republic where there is single party tyranny. The wealthy elite stay in power because the state has decided to put its effort into creating a brute squad by providing free legal services for and sheltering illegal aliens and now giving free money to criminals to deal drugs, all in violation of federal law.
Right now, these criminals are being supported so that their friends, family, and children will vote for the Democrats. God help the good people of California if this supported criminal element is ever mobilized the way tyrants in the past have mobilized their criminal brute squads.
You never know what will happen with the #Resistance.
