Asshat of the Week
- “Justice has not prevailed and justice has not been done,” U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) told reporters after the sentencing.
[...] Rush questioned the emergency response to the incident, which authorities say began with a security guard using pepper spray in the crowded club. That triggered a rush to the front exit of the building that left the victims trapped on the stairwell.
Rush also wondered “if this [club] had been predominated by white citizens whether or not riot police would have been called rather than rescue police.”
One could also wonder what all those black politicians and businessmen were doing covering for an illegal club that operated under their protection for months, maybe years without permits, licenses, insurance, evacuation plans, inspections, etc.
But that would be racist according to Bobby Rush.
