Jeb Bush, Maxine Waters, the Rule of Law, and 'Acts of Love'

'If you call it a riot (Rodney King riot) it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason.  Riot implies to me wild, crazed, uncalled-for actions and I’m not so sure that’s quite appropriate for what took place in Los Angeles.  It was unfortunate that it takes things like this rebellion to wake people up.  I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable...It was only a rebellion… a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice and a lot of alienation and frustration...There were mothers who took this as an opportunity to take some milk, to take some bread, to take some shoes. Maybe they shouldn’t have done it, but the atmosphere was such that they did it. They are not crooks.'

- Maxine Waters

'And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.'

- Jeb Bush,  6 April 2014

They stole the milk 'for the children.'  It was an 'act of love.'

They stole the bread 'for the children.'  It was an 'act of love.'

They stole some shoes 'for the children.'  It was an 'act of love.'

They stole some big screen televisions during Katrina 'for the children.'  It was an 'act of love.'

They illegally crossed the borders or overstayed their visas  'for the children.'  It was an 'act of love.'

The rule of law must be abandoned 'for the children' because it would be an 'act of love.'
