Jorge Gonzalez, suffered a broken neck, and a compressed spine at the hands of 3 sheriff deputies in Texas. He couldn't even hold his head up for this mugshot...so they had to hold it up for him. They actually thought the mugshot was more important than a hospital visit.
After a deputy tripped him he hit his face hard and went unconscious. They tased him couple of times “to wake him up”.
He was left paralyzed neck down, went through a series of surgeries, and was in ICU on the ventilator for over a month after the arrest.
According to the hospital he went over 26 hours in Hidalgo County jail without necessary medical attention that could have saved his life.

They used rubber bullets, tear gas, flash grenades and physical force the second there was a small gathering in the memory of a murdered black person
But when Trump supporters STORM THE CAPITOL the police stand by, they try to push back but barely. No state troopers, no militaristic police. Just domestic terrorism being allowed
Just more proof that the American police exists to uphold white supremacy and suppress black voices

If there were so much "proof" of voter fraud, why haven't the GOP used it yet?
The Republican Party stands the most to gain from proving widespread voter fraud. In fact they'd gain...everything. If they could prove that the Democrats "stole" the 2020 election via fraud, then they could effectively end the Democratic Party. Full stop.
They could use their "proof" to paint every Democratic candidate for the next generation as a member of the "party of voter fraud." They'd become the majority party in a heartbeat, and Nancy Pelosi couldn't be elected dog catcher in San Francisco.
Yet they're not doing that. Weird, huh? It's almost like they know the claims of "widespread voter fraud" aren't true. Does anybody really think the GOP wouldn't jump at the chance to demolish the Dems once and for all?
