FBI Should Rearrange Its Priorities

Sunday, June 28, 2020

The FBI sends 15 agents to Talladega to investigate a piece of rope hanging in a garage? I wonder how many it took to discover it had been hanging there since last fall and there is no way anybody knew Bubba Wallace would be assigned that particular garage.

Meanwhile in Chicago that same weekend 104 people were shot with 15 deaths including a 3 year old boy riding in a SUV with his father. Two weeks before that, old ChiTown had 85 shot with 24 deaths. 

That is 39 deaths in two weeks and I would imagine 90 percent were black people shooting other black people. To put that in perspective since 1950 nine black people have been lynched, not a one since 1964, while probably 35 have been murdered in Chicago.

I would respectfully suggest the FBI might look at rearranging their priorities.
