CW’s Batwoman has gone from peddling Black Lives Matter strains to peddling Black Lives Matter conspiracy theories. If the past few episodes weren’t bad sufficient, attacking non-public prisons and gun homeowners takes it to an entire new stage.
The April 11 episode “Time Off for Good Conduct” has Ryan Wilder/Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) making an attempt to comply with by way of on these fluffy group guarantees from the previous episode and aiding a brand new group middle. Nonetheless, that group middle shortly comes underneath assault by a shooter wielding a lightning gun.
Fortunately for Batwoman, a journalist helps the caped crusader tie this assault together with different current group middle assaults to a single supply. It seems the mastermind behind these crimes is the rich CEO of a non-public correctional facility. Based on Batwoman’s analysis, he makes use of criminals from his prisons to focus on group facilities and rewards them with break day their sentences. The explanation he focused the group facilities is as a result of they’ve profitable packages serving to at-risk youth. And based on Batwoman, “These packages maintain children from falling by way of the cracks, however who earnings from the youngsters who do? Prisons.”
Feels like some horrible BLM jail abolition conspiracy principle come to life. And it solely will get worse when Batwoman confronts CEO Ellis O’Brien on his crimes.
Ryan: Surveying your newest cash maker?
Ellis: Who’s there? I want a safety workforce down– ahh!
Ryan: Inform me how a lot cash does the town pay you per prisoner?
Ellis: 150 a day.
Ryan: So that you’re raking in a pair hundred million a yr to warehouse individuals?
Ellis: There’s nothing unlawful about it.
Ryan: That is the issue. All that cash means you will be prepared to do something to maintain your cells stuffed. That is why you despatched Kilovolt to fry the group middle. Any packages that saved at-risk children from ending up in considered one of your prisons minimize into your backside line, so that you took them out.
Ellis: All proper, all proper. You bought me. No have to get bodily.
Ryan: So that you’re confessing?
Ellis: Extra like stalling.
Happily, he’s later arrested, so justice is served, aside from the truth that this can be a nonsensical argument for the BLM aim of abolishing prisons. When you’re pressured to resort to insane conspiracy theories to have the ethical excessive floor, then maybe you’re not as proper as you assume.
Talking of not being proper, the episode additionally spews anti-gun rhetoric as Batwoman additionally tracks down members of a gang often called the False Face Society. She’s capable of purchase six names and finds a standard trait, noting: “They handle the Gotham gun membership. Is it that onerous to think about guys who work at a capturing vary pulling the set off?” Sadly, when the authorities arrive to interrogate the lads, all they discover are their our bodies hanging at their capturing vary, presumably to cowl any tracks.
So, not solely are non-public prisons evil, however non-public gun homeowners as nicely. At this level, it looks like Batwoman battles extra imaginary dangerous guys than actual ones, and I’m not speaking in regards to the Joker.
