    the dominant geopolitical system is corrupt and criminal. I refer to it as CRAPITALI$M committed to the status quo of WAR HATE SLAVERY IMPRISONMENT LIES & IMPUNITY with many police officers and military personnel on board. consequently, hate crimes should be expected and not a surprise. and it will continue until WE THE PEOPLE stop it, replace it and punish it.
