This week, the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics reported that violent crimes jumped by 18% from 2010 to 2011.The increase was attributed to an increased tendency of people to express themselves through non-verbal means of communication.
If you look more deeply into the data youll see that a 22% increase in simple assault more than accounts for the uptick in violence, said Attorney General Eric Holder. Its largely a case of more people being more physically demonstrative in how they interact with others.
These physically demonstrative interactions are widely misconstrued due to cultural prejudices that work against those who are verbally challenged, Holder argued. People who cant understand how a push or a punch could represent a valid way of making a point file charges. The filing of charges inflates the crime statistics.
Holder said he couldnt help but feel that there is a tinge of racism at work here. White folks who are oblivious to how their non-physical words or attitudes might hurt the feelings of others are quick to take offense if one of their victims responds with a fist to their face. Unfortunately, as it now stands, the law is biased in their favor.
The Attorney General promised that a second term for President Obama will present the opportunity to revisit the laws on assault and provide for a fairer balance. Holder speculated that a new category of expressive assault could be established that would place physical and non-physical forms of interaction on a more level playing field.
Whether the creation of a new category of assault would lead to a review of cases of persons currently serving time in prison for assault, Holder declined to say. Its certainly something wed want to take a look at, but we cant make any hard promises at this point in time, Holder said.

Oh my gosh! Do you know how many paragraphs I read before I figured out this was satire?!! Unbelievable!!
It’s jest Eric Holder’s chilluns playing Knockout King and Flash Rob on Whitey. Nothing to be concerned about.
SATIRE should be in the title!
LOL John. Good one again.
I’m tired of these satires. This country is so screwed up I can’t tell what’s real and what’s satire, and it’s not funny.
