The NC GOP's lack of concern over police abuse of minorities

Just another chapter in the suppression of inferior races:

The most support comes in the House budget, which includes includes $2.5 million in funding to local departments to purchase body cameras. The Senate budget does not include those funds, and legislative leaders are in discussions to find a compromise spending bill by their self-imposed Aug. 14 deadline.

Two bills requiring most police officers in the state to wear body cameras did not make it out of a House committee, nor did a bill banning racial profiling and requiring officers receive diversity training.

I find it particularly repulsive when anti-government zealots tacitly approve when the enforcement arm of government violates the civil rights of *some* citizens, but bends over backwards to put deadly weapons in the hands of other citizens. I would call it cognitive dissonance, but that implies there's actually some cognition at work.
