Absolutely awesome guy, who understands what has gone wrong, and why it is in dire need of some new hope for real justice.

    One reason lefties hate the 2nd amendment is that a person who carries a concealed weapon for self protection often deals out justice when threatened, and often gets no charge. That's not exactly vigilantism, but that citizen does what cops can't do, acting as judge, jury, and executioner on the miscreant.

    I love Eastwood movies, esp. Dirty Harry. Love the "Do you feel lucky, punk?" line. It is the ultimate quick serving of justice. Today we have dirty FBI, Congressmen, CIA, lawyers. We often do not see justiec in the courts anymore. I have read for instance that the Congressional pedophile ring is used to blackmail users into seeing thing the way certain dirty Congress embers want. Everyone has somthing which they will use to excape justice, at the expense of the public. So, it the recently pulled movie about attackingconservatives, ended with Dirty Harry with the liberals in teh cross hairs, I would love that. Our Justice system has made true justice hard to find., making cops jump through hoops to get the ruly bad guys. Really sick of it. When these protesoros show up at house, cops should show up and lock them up, otherwise, the homowner should be allowed to blow them away. They are disrespecint porperty rights and threatening Tucker's wife, McConnell, and more, tiem for an end to it.

    As sure as he can't condone Vigilantism he does understand the satisfaction we all seem to get from it. I know I often watch scenes in these types of shows where I am ready to scream "SHOOT" and hope like heck the actor or actress can hear me. More often than not I get disappointed and the bad guy lives and bad things happen but on a few occasions the bad guy goes down and I get a thrilling relief.

    had a discussion on this topic just yesterday. I took a tour on a large engineering project at a local county jail that's a huge place. Another engineer and I started discussing the death penalty. I said that I don't like it because the government shouldn't be in the business of killing people. But, if a perp gets convicted of a related crime I think they should strap the guy to a chair and let the victim's family member(s) come in with bats, knives and guns and do whatever.

    Love the Dirty Harry movies. Great entertainment. Clint, in my opinion, is a national treasure...

    Right on.

    “I believe a sense of justice is hardwired into human beings,” Barr said in an interview on Crime Story podcast. “Don’t ask me why, but it is there and it’s satisfying to see justice done.”

    Of course it is.

    The "Dirty Harry" line of Eastwood "Go ahead make my day" - has become a classic.

    "Death Wish" is another favorite of mine. Did you know that leftist critics lambasted it for its message?

    Naturally, they sided with the murderous thugs.

    Striving for justice is not in the left's DNA.

    Thank God for AG Barr. He is made of the same fabric as the president: fully aware of the violence and vitriol his words/actions precipitate.

    How long will it take for the MSM to dub him a "white supremacist"?
