I’m not even sure the staff of the office fully get how heinous this was. This isn’t just someone making a possible joke about gay teen suicide. This is a noose hung outside an office dedicated to advancing civil rights. It doesn’t take a history major to get the historical “joke” that’s being played on the office. It’s intimidation of a minority for exercising their constitutional rights, and for striving for additional civil rights. If that’s not an area that should perk up law enforcement, then maybe some at the DOJ needs to give Santa Ana a call. The civil rights implications are clear.
That is, if DOJ can spare someone from their veritable task force devoted to undercutting our entire civil rights agenda in the courts.
It’s hard work channeling 1950s bigots.
