What is the point of speculating who gains votes with the insurrection of blacks in Charlotte? This is a useless, cynical and wrong discussion, especially if the obvious implication is that Clinton should now take a harder stance, take the side of the police and not let her opponent keep control of the “security card.”
In other words, that she should not do what she did — and what Barack Obama did, after the latest attacks in New York — which is to maintain a soft and weak (but reasonable!) position.
Of course, we are a few weeks from the presidential elections. And anything that could be considered a “disorder” or that arouses “fear,” will be exploited on that topic and will be used to play dirty. This usually favors the right. Indeed it seems designed to catapult Trump to the victory, regardless if African Americans injure policemen or if an Islamic lunatic sows panic in New York City and the surrounding areas with unexploded homemade bombs.
