If the rich and connected are exempt from the law, we do not have equal justice under the law.

If the laws only apply to the non-rich, the non-white, and the non-connected, or any combination of the above, we do not have a rule of law, and we cannot have equal justice under the law.

If the law only regulates non-whites, the police are a modern day equivalent of slave patrols.

If the law only regulates the non-rich, and non-connected, we have an oligarchy.

I am hoping and I will soon be working as a volunteer for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and if they win, we must pressure our politicians to insure that the rich and connected are subject to the law that applies to the rest of us.

And if that is done, Trump and his (so far) unindicted co-conspirators will spend the rest of their lives in jail, on bail, or in court.

It is not enough to put Democrats in control, it is equally important to the future of the US democratic experiment that we have equal justice under the law.

2. Same justice for Rittenhouse as a black man would receive.

Execution.

3. I've always said that.

There should be no federal prisons to protect the rich, let them be in a regular prison with everyone else.
