They aren't bad at elections, this system of fraud and racial supremacy is incredibly complex and difficult to manage. They're actually quite skilled at it.

"Look, I KNOW those filthy Yanks in the NORTH keep SAYIN that those coloreds get equal rights to vote, but damn-all, We in the SOUTH know better, and do you have any idea how hard it is to keep honest, white americans on top down here? DO YA!?"

Georgia continues to be bad at elections in new and terrifying ways.

Unfortunately, the Republicans are going to blame Democrats for the problem and not take it seriously.

Also, the article states that various experts couldn't explain it and it seems extremely targeted, which pretty much leaves tampering as the only viable explaination left.

The fact that Georgias machines are unauditable is also a major problem.

Also the article notes that it's basically the most pointless office to rig, being almost completely ceremonial. I think that's the part that everyone's confused about, Georgia having rigged elections in and of itself seems like a given to these folks.

They aren't bad at elections, this system of fraud and racial supremacy is incredibly complex and difficult to manage. They're actually quite skilled at it.

Basically this, but they rigged the governing equivalent of employee of the month. The primary concern is that it almost went unnoticed, Georgia is adamantly refusing to let anyone look into any aspect of it, which of course raises the question of what else was rigged.

The easy answer is probably 'Everything.' At this point, maybe the Feds should go in, rip out the system out and rebuild from scratch while being supervised with an electron microscope. Course though, that'd be like taking rape to 'states rights' and they'll complain to hell and back.

You know, if they're so far gone as to be rigging even Presidential elections, then, well.....

To be clear, when I said bad at, I meant "Brian Kemp and his team rigged the state races as much as they could."

Yeah, that's not bad at elections.

It's bad at voter representation, but somebody definitely got elected!  Even despite the challenges posed by all those people voting against him!

New info on yesterday's shooting.

Shooter went on his killing spree after being fired. His first victim was HR, second was his boss. Then he went after a student intern on his first day on the job for some reason...and the last two victims were coworkers.

He was a convicted felon who managed to pass his initial screening and get a gun permit. Only later when he applied for concealed carry was additional screening done and his license revoked. Unfortunately, nobody bothered to actually take away the gun he had already purchased. So the system dropped the ball in several places on this one...

The system failed at least three separate times - first when he applied for his FOID, second when he bought the pistol, and third when they finally figured out he was a prohibited person (making any attempt to acquire a firearm a federal crime) and failed to arrest him.

Wait hold on that's one, two, three...

Figuring out he was prohibited was the one time things worked properly.

It was so late though!

Fine. I concede.

yep, the bit in purple was in fact the dependent clause for "failed to arrest him", not a separate thing they did.

I do however think hindsight is important here. There's limited manpower and resources to chase up all cases. They need to prioritize, and it's easy to just yell "they should have arrested that guy" when someone goes nuts, when in fact there are probably a zillion guys on their books who, given the available information, would have looked like being equally if not more of a risk.

hopefully, people posting about how the police should have magic-hindsight and proactively arrest people who would be a problem are also happy to live in a Police State with Zero Tolerance / Mandatory Sentencing and all the rest. Because, you know, to stop All Bad Things Happening we'd definitely need to expand police powers and state surveillance quite a bit, and it's not just the guilty who get swept up in that.

Thank you, I was aware lol. We call these things jokes here, on this planet, which we call Earth :3

You see, it took them until he applied for a concealed carry to notice that he needed arresting. It's nice that they finally caught it, but it was late. I therefore marked it in purple.
