That's what I don't understand, Americans distrust their state, clamor for a smaller state, many of them maintain the delusion that owning guns will save them from authoritarianism, yet they allow this kind of crap.
Strange. I didn't know it was only possible to focus on one single issue. Maybe the people fighting for the government to not be dicks about the guns are also fighting for the government to not be dicks with their police force. Just a thought.
Most of the "law and order" politicians currently being elected to government oppose any restrictions or oversight on the police. They're still pushing the mantra of "only the guilty have something to hide." So they try to protect the NSA's warrantless searches and treat investigations into police abuse as class and race cards. They also tend to oppose any attempt at gun control as attacks on freedom.
Sure, some of the people fighting against gun control are also fighting against abuse of authority by police, but by no means do those ideologies overlap to any great degree.
White people assume (probably correctly) that this will never happen to them.
Plenty of white people have been the victim of police bullying. Especially in this case, I find it hard to believe the police would discriminate one pile of cash from another based on the race of the proper owner. They'd take both.
