Law & Order, Property Rights Follow Gentrification of Brooklyn
Hipsters are known for their rigid conformity to liberal ideology, so they might be horrified to learn that they have been reintroducing politically incorrect concepts like law & order and respect for property rights to the Third World hellhole that diversity had made of Brooklyn:
The influx of well-off and educated white people to trendy neighborhoods such as Williamsburg is rapidly “gentrifying’’ the borough’s jury pool – and transforming verdicts, lawyers and judges told The Post.
It’s good news for prosecutors in criminal cases – and bad news for plaintiffs in civil lawsuits, they said.
Local defense lawyers complain that jurors no longer believe the worst of the police. Grand juries are also effected.
“The grand jury used to have an anti-police sentiment. When I was a prosecutor 22 years ago, a jury would be 80 percent people of color,” said high-profile lawyer Arthur Aidala. “Now, the grand juries have more law-and-order types in there.”
Civil juries have changed too, inhibiting trial lawyers’ ongoing looting spree:
“There’s an influx of money, and when everything gets gentrified, these jurors aren’t pro-plaintiff anymore,” said plaintiff lawyer Charen Kim.
“We’re dealing with more sophisticated people, and they don’t believe [plaintiffs] should be awarded millions of dollars for nothing.”
Not even the trendiest hipsters can help but carry the seed of Western Civilization. Demographics is destiny. That’s why Obama won’t close the border.
