Our society is made up of the makers who built it, and the takers who are looting it into oblivion. The ideology of the takers is liberalism. Liberals control the courts. Consequently, the legal system produces rulings like this:
An El Paso County [Colorado] jury on Friday awarded nearly $300,000 to the daughter of a burglar who was fatally shot in 2009 while breaking into an auto lot.…
Phillip and Sue Fox, who filed suit for wrongful death in 2010 on behalf of [burglar Robert Johnson] Fox’s 3-year-old daughter, called the jury’s award a victory in their fight to seek accountability for the death of their son, who they say never posed a threat to the heavily armed men.
Never mind that he had knives in his pockets and one strapped to his ankle, or that he was high on methamphetamine according to his accomplice. Poor Fox was just a cuddly “have-not” who needed money to buy more drugs.
The exact amount of the award was $269,500, for factors such as loss of companionship and loss of future earnings.
Future earnings — for a meth-head burglar? They must mean future plunder and welfare payments.
