I’ve never started a Pit thread before, but this asshole put me over the edge.
This morning, there was a murder just south of downtown Austin. The murder suspect appears to be someone who has had issues with homelessness.
The City of Austin has been battling homelessness with several controversial measures. As many people know, Austin itself is rather liberal while the state government is rather conservative. This leads to many conflicts and state officials tend to get involved in Austin affairs just to score political points. Governor Abbott has been harsh in his criticism of Austin’s handling of homeless issues. Of course, the Governor hasn’t done a damned thing to reduce homelessness in Austin or anywhere else. “Fuck 'em” seems to be his attitude.
So, after the murder this morning, Abbott tweeted the following:
"When all facts are revealed I bet you’ll learn that the killer was a homeless man with prior arrests. If so Austin’s reckless homeless policy puts lives in danger to murders like this.
Austin leaders must answer for their perilous policies."
Abbott is a Trumpist and this is the result. Abbott never would have said something like this out loud before Trump became POTUS.
I thought of that after I posted but you guys know what I mean!!! It is a figure of speech! He really deserves to be driven out of the state on a rail but I was trying to think of something more productive and less violent.
