Overcharging is tantamount to over-promising. It’s perceived as overly punitive and less thoughtful in some cases. Sure, everyone’s angry. Sure, Floyd’s death appears to be criminal. But you’ve got to be able to prove what you charge. Ellison may have just Peter Principled himself out of this prosecution.
Our thoughts: Why would he 'overcharge'? Because he knows that by overcharging the cops, they won't see prison time, thus setting up more civil unrest during peak election season.
Here is the math. Trump's first 3 year total of 104 divided by Obama's last 3 year total of 182 = 57.14%, a 42.86% reduction. The graph is meant to change with differing inputs. You need to enter specific parameters to get the results you are looking for. Choose “black” “unarmed” etc to get the 42% drop line.
