Hang Separately?

Ore : 10:54 AM

This kind of bullshit speaks to one huge obstacle to America realizing justice for itself. Now, these kinds of things happen too often. And, as always, I'm disgusted with the perpetrator and hope for the best for his victim (as it is, she's expected to survive, but I don't yet know just how serious her injuries are). But the crime also underlines one of true liberalism's handicaps: a deadly lack of solidarity among America's poor and disenfranchised.

The truth is, you'd be hard pressed to find someone more willing to rat out, torture, rob, hurt or murder a poor person than another poor person.

Clearly, Cooksey's motive was robbery, an activity people who have money don't normally engage in. What we should keep in mind is that the toll worker -- like many MUNI drivers, PG&E poll climbers, SBC operators, et alia -- are most often far more successful products of the same background as Cooksey. And while AP has spun this story as indicative of a need to reevaluate bridge security (read, "Terrorism On The Golden Gate! OH, NOOOOO!!!"), IMHO, the real implications of this crime and crimes like it are far more immediate and far more frightening.

"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."
