Co-Founder of Illinois Black Panther Party Outraged That Cops Didn't Stop Looters
"For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Chuck him out, the brute! "
But it's " Saviour of 'is country " when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
An 'Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool - you bet that Tommy sees!"
In other news, Rep. Bobby Rush has some complaining to do.
US Rep. Bobby Rush said at least eight cops and supervisors ducked into his district office at 54th Street and South Wentworth Avenue on June 1 while looting stemming from George Floyd protests went largely unchecked outside, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.
“One was asleep on my couch in my campaign office,” Rush said at a press conference. “They even had the unmitigated gall to go and make coffee for themselves and to pop popcorn, my popcorn, in my microwave while looters were tearing apart businesses within sight and within their reach.”
“They were in a mode of relaxation and they did not care about what was happening to businesspeople, to this city,” he said. “They didn’t care. They absolutely didn’t care.”
That complaint would be much more valid if it weren't coming from a co-founder of the Illinois Black Panther Party.
Rush just co-signed a letter demanding that law enforcement stop surveillance of BLM protests, he's been going around whining that the cops are worse today than they were in 1968, and then he whines that his office was burglarized and the cops were eating his popcorn.
Rush said his office was burglarized amid looting in the early morning hours of June 1 in a plaza at 5401 S. Wentworth Ave. Video showed officers relaxing in Rush’s office, including three supervisors and 10 other officers.
When you can't trust your fellow racial supremacists not to rob you, and need the cops to help, and they eat your popcorn instead, it's sad.
