Trump Told Crowd 'Knock the Crap' Out of Tomato Thrower

"...knock the crap out of them, would you, seriously...I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees..."

Trump said to hit tomato thrower.
These words should help people to understand the mental processes of a man like Trump. His words tell me that he would use his money to shirk the law. For him it is okay to use violence to get results, even if one has to break the law in the process. For him the law be damned because he has enough money to pay the fines, and to buy judges. The law means nothing to him. Only his agenda and goal mean anything to him, and he will do anything he thinks he can get away with to accomplish those goals.

Donald Trump and his ilk are very dangerous elements in our society. They think money can buy them out of trouble for any wrongdoings. That's one reason I advocate a sliding scale for fines, that would be tied to income.

For instance, some person gets fined for going 100 mph in a 65 mph zone. Say that same person is driving a Maserati and pulls in $1.5 million a year. For him the price of speeding is just the cost of having a little fun. The money spent on the fine means nothing to them, and has no effect on them what-so-ever.

Now turn that around and say the speeder is a person driving a 10 year old car, and they only make $35,000 a year. A fine is going to put the screws to their finances, and they will get the message. Don't speed.

This is the "inequality" in the income inequality. This example, and many others like exclusion, are the results of income inequality. Donald Trump is an extreme example of what can happen when income inequality goes amok. The deluded wealthy person thinks they can get away with anything they want because they have a lot of money.

The deluded wealthy person thinks they can tell their followers to beat people up, and they will pay the costs. Isn't that a bit like hiring a hitman? What next?
