If someone walks up and destroys a window of a business, they get arrested, right? If someone does property damage, they are usually arrested, period. Why is it when a man walks right up to the Donald Trump star, he is somehow able to walk away and turn himself in later? I don’t think so. You destroyed property and should have been in handcuffs immediately. If it was a Hillary star, would the outcome have been different? I think so.
When an older homeless woman stood by the Trump Hollywood star, with her signs and protection, she was swamped by a bunch of people. They called her a b**ch, ripped her signs, and belittled her so much she went into a dis associative state. A heavy set man aggressively came towards her, knocked her cart over and she went onto the concrete. Her eyes closed, and I noticed her frail frame shaking in anxiety. They judged her as mentally ill rather than just possibly without a job. Rather than ask her about what happened to her they told her to take her meds. This is disgusting. Not only did they disrespect this woman’s right to vote, but they labelled her, treating her as if they knew who she was and what she went through. They also accused her of being a drug abuser. Honestly, not all homeless people are drug users.
This woman had signs which made logical sense. She had opinions and sentences that were more more thoughtful on her signs than I have seen on the majority of signs. Yet, they still label her. Perhaps, half of her issues are economical, environmental, and socially constructed by ideologies that are irrational and judgmental towards her. Perhaps, she is standing up for what she believes is right and will help her.
Regardless, this is an inhumane way to treat a person. I understand tensions are high, but in no way should anyone endure what this woman had to endure. If I could, I’d give her a hug.
