Civil rights group wants old people to “die slowly”

January 13, 2011

Ex-Chair of Civil Rights Group Indicted in Ohio – NYTimes.com.

You ever wonder how many turns in his grave Martin Luther King Jr. has done in the past 50 years?  Instead of a legacy that should be honored and improved upon, it seems his “disciples” are doing everything in their power to ruin his great name.  From Jesse Jackson’s trists to Al Sharpton’s counter-protest of a decidedly peaceful and honorable Glenn Beck rally, the men who claim to bear the mantle of King’s legacy can’t hold a flame to the man.  I’m sure this next story has Mr. King spinning overtime.

The Rev. Raleigh Trammell, 73, was indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury in Dayton, where he lives and also headed a local chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Trammell was indicted on one count of grand theft and 25 counts each of forgery and tampering with government records.

Okay, but what does that have to with old people dieing?  Read on:

“This defendant abused his position of trust and hid behind his title and position in order to perpetrate these crimes,” Prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr. said in a statement. “Not only did he steal taxpayer money, but he denied meals as promised to elderly and frail citizens in our community.”

You see, the local government contracted the SCLC to deliver meals to low-income seniors.  And the SCLC did everything they were supposed to, but they left one little step out, actually giving the food to the poor elderly citizens.  I could go into a long diatribe about the callous nature of the persons involved etc., but I think there is a more important point to be had out of this.

The government’s form of charity is almost always an abject failure, spurred on in this case by a quasi-governmental organization the local legislature trusted to do a job.  Does anyone doubt the back room deals and good ole boy network that allowed this “deal” to be had in the first place?  Was any attempt made to insure the SCLC could fulfill the job in the first place?  Or was it just a way to line the pockets of a civil rights group that could guarantee future votes?

This is utterly shameless, and I hope this “Reverend” enjoys a long stay in a little box.  Maybe as extra punishment, we can forget to bring him his meals every now and then.  Oh damn, what am I thinking?  That would violate his civil rights.
