James Woods tweets truth on Pres Obama’s ‘legacy’ – you can send congrats cards to Jimmy Carter, now

President Obama wants to leave a legacy when he leaves office in three weeks, but what will it be? Actor James Woods, whose triumphant return to Twitter recently made headlines, has an idea:

Woods was retweeting some interesting facts posted by retired U.S. Marine Gunnery Sgt. Jessie Jane Duff:

According to the Post article:

Arrests are down 28 percent this year in the Windy City, the lowest since at least 2001, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, and less than half what they were in 2010. Drug arrests are down by half. Pedestrian stops were down 82 percent by early fall.

If the anti-cop activists and academics were correct, this drop in enforcement should have been a boon for minority areas. Those activists maintain, after all, that cops gratuitously harass residents there for insignificant behavior and throw harmless sad sacks in prison for possessing a joint’s worth of weed. The anti-cop forces particularly vilify Broken Windows policing — aimed at quality-of-life offenses like disorderly conduct, street drug trafficking and loitering.”

And yet, more people, particularly minorities, are getting shot than ever before. Should someone tell the president that political correctness doesn’t qualify as a “legacy” in any real sense? In fact, as these facts attest, it usually does more harm than good.

Naturally, Woods drew lots of interesting reaction to his tweet:

And finally, some hope for a better future!
