Lots of outrage out there over the “exposure” of this supposed “scam.”
An alleged nonprofit aimed at providing financial aid to looters and rioters who were arrested in the Minneapolis riots is facing widespread criticism after revealing that it has spent only a fraction of its donations and pocketed the rest, as reported by Fox News.
The group is called the Minnesota Freedom Fund, and although it has received approximately $35 million in donations, has only spent about $200,000 on actual bail for incarcerated suspects. That amounts to only 0.57 percent of its earnings actually being spent on what the group said they would spend it on.
Not that I’m saying it ISN’T a scam, mind; for all I know it is. But my question, which I have yet to see mentioned anywhere else, is this: given the near-unanimous support for the rioters from Democrat-Socialist governors and mayors, as well as the usual “space to destroy” stand-down orders, exactly how many rioters have the cops actually been allowed to arrest? 30? 40? 50?
Any at all?
Seems to me that might matter just a wee bit when totting it all up, no?
Moreover: how high was the bail, on average? On what specific charges? How many offenders had no bail set at all, to be released on their own recognizance?
Maybe we all ought to be worrying less about the possible fleecing of some deserving suckers, and more about the privileged treatment of violent hard-Left shocktroops by a corrupt system wholly complicit in their revolutionary terrorism.
