How many times do we have to see this s*** happen before America gets off its ass and demands action? http://news.yahoo.com/3-charged-sexual-abuse-case-previously-cited-213559551.html  A girl was raped by three of her classmates. After raping her body, they took to social media to rape her reputation. The cops kinda sorta did a half-assed “investigation”, and the girl killed herself. And there it sat until the media made the cops look like the bumbling, sexist fools that they were. And suddenly, the cops “found” the evidence required to charge the perps with more serious crimes.

Time and again, across the nation and around the world, local officials smirk and wink at rape. Time and again, they get caught. And time and again, they do too little, too late. Why the repetition, why the failure to learn?

Short answer: there are no consequences for their willful incompetence. The cops get a brief period of time in the harsh glare of the media, but they go away soon enough. And the cops shrug their shoulders, smirk some more, and go back to their tacit encouragement of rape and other violent sex crimes. Why should they change?

Look at Steubenville, Torrington, Nova Scotia, and any other such case you care to look at. Have any of the local officials who failed so miserably lost their jobs, been fined, or called to account in any way? No. They do a rotten job and it does not matter. They can allow rape to happen and pay no price for their pro-criminal activities.

And the hell of it is, most police departments actually do a good job in this area. But they don’t get any credit for it, because the incompetent few make the rest look bad. And the good cops and bad cops get the same treatment, regardless of how good or bad a job they do. Every parent knows: if you don’t teach your kids about consequences, your kids won’t learn to do the right thing. Same with adults.

A modest proposal: it’s time we put any and all failed local officials up on trial as accomplices to rape, whenever they fail to protect and serve the victims of sex crimes. Imagine if, for example, Sheriff Fred Abdalla of Steubenville had to register as a sex offender. Do you think that would get the attention of the pro-rape cops around America? You bet it would.

If they don’t and won’t care about the women they are supposed to protect, they’ll at least start caring about keeping their own fat, pimply butts out of jail.

P.S.: The family is suing the three little pigs who raped and bullied their daughter to death: http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_23028108/lawsuit-planned-over-assaulted-calif-teen-suicide But they aren’t suing the worthless locals who took EIGHT F***ING MONTHS to arrest the perps. They really should be suing the cops, too, just to put the fear of God into those stinking rapist-loving perverts.

Here is the story of Rand Pail and eleven other Senators who are making sure that crazy people and violent criminals can buy any guns they want, any time they want to. They will filibuster any and all legislation that would keep kooks and perps away from weapons that could be used to slaughter innocent adults and children.

These twelve Senators are standing firm in their support for violent, insane, sociopathic murderers like Adam Lanza. They are shoulder-to-shoulder with terrorists like Timothy McVeigh. They support convicted felons who want to mug little old ladies and shoot them. They just love the two teenaged scumbuckets who shot a baby in the head last month. Yes, America, if you want to have guns, the Dirty Dozen wants you to have them too: even if a judge has found you to be mentally incompetent, or if you have a history of committing violent felonies.

You see, among the proposals that would be up for a vote in the Senate is one that would close some loopholes in our current background check system. 90% of Americans support this measure. That is ninety percent of our fractious, divided nation agreeing on something. When is the last time you saw that many of us agree on anything? We don’t want lunatics running around gunning down our children. We don’t want convicted felons shooting our babies and grandparents. That is what almost every American believes.

But these Senators don’t give a damn what we the people think. They only care about pocketing their large paychecks from the NRA. Never mind if the rest of us get our asses shot off by someone who should not legally be able to purchase a weapon. Nope, they are not concerned with the opinion of the law-abiding majority of Americans. They are watching out for the rights of the felons and the criminally insane to have assault weapons.

One doubts that the twelve sleazebuckets would say so themselves , of course. They’d prattle on with some conspiracy theory about black helicopter-riding Soviet assassins, coming to take our guns and canned goods, because they hate our freedoms; that, or something even less coherent.

But since what they do supports the gun rights of loonies, terrorists and criminals, then they are supporters of loonies, terrorists and criminals. Ladies and Gentlemen, we present Senators Paul, Cruz, Rubio, Lee, Moran, Inhofe, Burr, Johnson, Enzi, Risch, Crapo, Coats and Roberts: the Crazy Criminal Caucus.

This past Sunday, people died in Japan when a highway tunnel collapsed: http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/02/world/asia/japan-tunnel/index.html     The highway department was short of money, and had kinda sorta maintained, repaired, and inspected the tunnel. Unfortunately,  the people who were killed are not kinda sorta dead. They are just plain dead.

Not long ago, a railroad bridge in New Jersey collapsed, and toxic chemicals spewed into a creek and beyond. The bridge is old, and had been kinda sorta patched up after the last time it collapsed in 2009 : http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/30/us-usa-train-derailment-idUSBRE8AT0PF20121130   Unfortunately, the people living a few yards from the bridge, the companies who depend on getting their goods to market, and the animals and plants in the stream aren’t kinda sorta messed up: they have been well and truly screwed.

All around the world, governments are putting our safety, health, and indeed our very lives at risk by neglecting our infrastructure. Yes, yes, money’s tight; but they seem to have no difficulty coming up with megabucks for their bagmen, contributors, family members, or themselves. They just ignore the unglamorous things that don’t feed their egos and bank accounts, and hope that somebody else will deal with them.

News Flash, a**holes: it’s government’s f***ing job to take care of government’s responsibilities. How many people have to die; how many jobs must be destroyed; how much of our world has to be trashed before we, the citizens of planet Earth hold our “representatives” accountable for their greed, arrogance, and criminal negligence?

Do us all a favor and pass this message along to them: it is their job to take care of their jobs. And no one else will do it. And until they do it, people are going to keep on dying.

And the needless, wasted, tragic blood of those innocents will forever stain the hands of governments.
