The last time we tried this experiment in progressive soft on crime idiocy, we drove crime to stratospheric levels from the early 1960s to the mid-1990s
A New Kind Of “Mistake”
The tragedy was that it was minorities in the inner cities who paid the price for this Bobo pseudo-intellectual progressive experiment, not the pseudo-intellectual progressives. The same thing will happen once again with the poor minorities paying the progressive leftists' price to leverage power.
Letting it burn is an emotional cheat, but the reality is what will burn are the places where the people cannot recover from the burn damage. What needs to burn are the environs of Hollywood and other trendy lefty progressive communities, not the communities of people being used and discarded by the progressive leftists.
Then again, until the people being used and discarded come to their senses, realize that they are being used and discarded, it is all but impossible to help them avoid the destruction.
Burn baby burn...
