Conservatives (not all of them) loved it when we got tough on “crime.” No knock warrants, militarized police, doors bashed down, homes invaded, it all worked to keep a little Reagan-inspired law and order.
Now a conservative activist finds herself on the ass end of this normalized police abuse. Welcome to the party.
You see, Republicans? This is why you should be pissed off when you see the cops kicking down doors to arrest poor people on suspicion of having a bag of weed in their house. This is why when you see them dragging black people out of their homes and depriving them of their rights under the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments, you should be able to picture yourselves in their one-flip-flop while they are face down on their own lawn in handcuffs.
Welcome to the party. Please stick around, since we are going to need numbers.
