Quote of the Day - Blasphemy Edition

"If you look at the most credible evidence [of Michael Brown's death at the hands of a Ferguson, Mo., police officer], the lessons are really basic," [Rich] Lowry said during an appearance on Meet the Press. "Don't rob a convenience store. Don't fight with a policeman when he stops you and try to take his gun. And when he yells at you to stop, just stop."

Those comments elicited gasp from a panel that included the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson and MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. Mitchell exclaimed "Whoa, whoa" during Lowry's comments, while Robinson said his recitation of the known facts in the case was an attempt to "relitigate" Brown's death.

National Guard Encounters Armed Blacks with Guns in Ferguson - Cooperation Ensues

Some National Guardsmen patrolling the wreckage of Ferguson, Missouri came on a remarkable, and alarming, sight: black men with guns, their leader a 6'8? giant cradling an AR-15. They stood in the forecourt of a Conoco gas station, a building that rose, unmolested, like a meth addict's last solitary tooth in a micro-Hiroshima landscape of boarded-up, or, worse, looted and burned, small businesses.

This was a building that did not burn, despite containing fuel enough to delight the nihilistic rioters. It wasn't just standing, it was open.

The Guard soldiers demanded that the men put their guns down, and were actually starting to cuff them, when the owner of the station emerged. Doug Merello is a second-generation owner of the station, and even though he's white, he and his shop's neighbors, just about all black, had always been friendly. They were his customers, and the neighbors were where he turned for his workers, too.

The nervous Guardsmen soon learned that the giant, Derrick "Stretch" Jordan, 37, and his armed friends were local men. They were workers and former workers at the station, and their friends, who knew Merello and just thought it would just flat be a crying shame if his station went the way of so many other small Ferguson businesses. Especially when they knew so many good people in their town, of whatever race, and knew also that the looters were mostly outsiders with a sprinkling of local ne'er-do-wells, incited by an irresponsible media that dreams of a world in flames.

Don Surber: Do Not Rebuild #Ferguson

A contrary view:

From a kid who survived the Hough Riots in Cleveland nearly a half century ago, some unsolicited advice to the business owners in Ferguson, Missouri: Do not bother rebuilding. Your customers do not want you. They tore up your stores - twice. And after one of them robbed a store. These are not protests. They are pogroms aimed at the middle class. Take the insurance money and run.

Police officers, too, should leave. Why risk a criminal trial or worse for doing your job?

Homeowners, too. Black, white, Asian, Hispanic - it does not matter. You are middle class. They do not want you. Leave.

PRESIDENT JARRETT: "Senior Adviser" Reportedly Calling All the Shots, Including Those In Ferguson

President Obama Visits Caterpillar Factory b_bjlzhE1zWl

Remembering Jonestown

And how Jim Jones was a darling of the Left and Democratic establishment in the 70s.

The Jonestown Massacre was the first news event that I followed from beginning to end and fully understood so I've always marked it as the beginning of my political consciousness. And it's always bothered me that the people who aided Jones and were his allies in politics even as he descended into paranoia have never been held to account for it.

I prefer to call it a suicide/massacre. That places most of the blame where it belongs, on Jim Jones himself.

The first relevant lesson to be learned is the danger of blindly following a charismatic leader. Jones became more deranged later on, but as his congregation grew in the 60s and 70s, he was a respected member of the San Francisco community, with connections to Democratic politicians (I'm not sure there's any other kind in San Francisco) and a strong reputation for racial equality.

The second lesson is to beware of the trust that gullible and trusting human beings can place in that charismatic leader. Jones required that people give over their lives and their assets when they became followers-a danger sign. Members had varied reasons for joining, but it can probably be safely said that most of them were exceedingly idealistic. According to the testimony of many of the survivors (a small group, but an articulate one), once they realized the true character of the man in whom they'd placed such hope and faith, it was too late.

...Another lesson is how connected many on the Left were to Jones' movement. Angela Davis and Huey Newton were involved, for example, in the rehearsals for suicide:

'[Jones] set up a false sniper attack upon himself and begin his first series of White Nights, called the "Six Day Siege", where Jones spoke to Temple members about attacks from outsiders and had them surround Jonestown with guns and machetes. The fiery rallies took an almost surreal tone as Angela Davis and Huey Newton communicated via radio-telephone to the Jonestown crowd, urging them to hold strong against the "conspiracy."'

Sonny Bunch: No There Is No 'Black Stormtrooper Controversy'

Ritual denunciation of non-existent crimes as a means to attain status within the in-group:

Of course, this being the Internet Age, where Everything Is TerribleT, soon people were talking about the "black stormtrooper controversy." And then, all of a sudden, there were a series of denunciations of all the "racist" Star Wars fans who freaked out because a black dude was wearing a Stormtrooper costume. This Mashable post is representative of the genre. But there's something odd about this so-called controversy. All of the people writing about it just kind of take for granted that there's some hardcore contingent of Star Wars fans who are writing that the series is ruined because a black dude is playing a stormtrooper. It's just assumed that this is true.

But . is it? I mean, sure, I bet someone somewhere on the Internet is ranting about minorities taking the jobs of, um, Maori clones, because the Internet is a large and terrible place filled with any number of terrible (and probably large) people. That being said, if you search Twitter for "black stormtrooper," you'll find 1,291,074* tweets decrying the super duper racist people who are super duper butthurt about a black stormtrooper, and roughly zero** tweets from people are actually upset about the fact that a black dude was in a stormtrooper costume.*** Go back and read that Mashable post. You know what's fascinating about it? There're exactly zero pieces of evidence backing up the belief that there's any "black stormtrooper criticism."

What we have here is a prime example of a fascinating Internet phenomenon: the preemptive denunciation of a controversy that doesn't exist.

Danish Parents to Save Schools Through Sex

Parents in the northwestern Jutland town of Thy have pledged to get busy between the sheets in order to save the community's daycare institutions and schools.

As part of a deal brokered between Thisted Council and area parents, the municipality has agreed to keep area institutions alive for the next four years. In turn, parents are promising to create new children to fill the institutions.

The daycares and schools face falling enrollment numbers and a municipal analysis suggested that the institutions be closed and merged with others in the area. But local politicians had a hard time accepting that and went to parents with a plea to be fruitful and multiply.

16 At this link, http://tinyurl.com/pfkvdo6 , is a listing for the following event in Oakland: "Where does Anarchism cross paths with anti-state Marxism?" Amongst the descriptions of the event are the following words: "An Anarchist / Marxist-Humanist dialog will engage this issue from the perspective of Hegel's concept of dialectical mediation. Hegel saw the need for his dialectic to be projected directly into the fray as the prevailing discourse . . ." blah blah blah. (This listing is on the extreme-left event calendar listing page.) The someone came along (I wonder who?) and left the following comment: "I fell asleep just reading the description by Unit 4 + 3 "Anti-state Marxism"? Are you kidding me? There is no such thing as anti-state Marxism. The very essence of the ideology is the centralization of economic decision-making in a collectively controlled state apparatus. Without state power, there can't be the compulsion necessary to force people into giving up individual ownership or ambition. And if people are allowed to "opt out" of the collectivist system, it collapses as a concept. So Marxism cannot exist without a state government. Marxism at its core is the polar opposite of anarchism. The endless attempts of the Bay Area's Marxists to seduce anarchists into their anti-freedom worldview is highly disturbing; and it's astounding how many young and naive anarchists fall for it and get under the sway of Marxist demagogues. Anarchists should find no common ground with Marxists. Just because both have momentarily identified the same common enemy (free-market capitalism) does not mean that they have a shared ideology. For example, look at Iran in the late '70s: Both the communists and the Islamists were equally opposed to the Shah's rule. And they thought therefore that they should cooperate to overthrow him -- which they did. But the moment that happened, the false alliance instantly disintegrated, and the Islamists jailed/killed/expelled/oppressed all the communists, who foolishly thought they would share power with the Islamists in a new government. Anarchists of the Bay Area: The enemy of your enemy is not necessarily your friend. Shun the Marxists, and don't fall for the lie that "anti-state Marxism" can even exist." That is all.

Actually, there is a bit of Marxist twaddle that says that the Dictatorship of the Proletariat is only a temporary phase, until enough people are re-educated to live freely in cooperative, sharing community. Although it's in the literature, nobody has ever gotten to that stage.....possibly because, as Hayek noted, centrally planned economies generally fail due to the necessary information to succeed being distributed throughout the society. Accordingly, the more they centralize, the more they must exert themselves just to stay fed -- and that grand re-education just gets further and further away. Sort of like the old saying "the hurrieder I go, the behinder I get."




It should be noted that the same phenomenon can be observed in the US at present.

The problem is that a bunch of privileged women threw their weight around and "punished" some man who managed to be talented and smart enough to get to where he was not because some woman was deprived of the opportunity to involve herself with any of the STEM fields.

In fact looking at the statistics, the people who need help the most are the men as they are less and less getting into college, there's less special funding for them and they have virulent hormonal problems that women seem to have less difficulty with during the time when they need to be concentrating on their future.

It's not the girls that are the problem it's the boys. Yet where does the money go? To helping the girls of course. Let the boys take care of themselves. It's the patriarchy ya know.

73 Still laugh when I see the "anarchists" holding up signs calling for "free education" and "universal healthcare". Um. shouldn't being an "anarchist mean "no government", not a benevolent government. Posted by: Ashley Judd's Puffy Scamper at November 30, 2014 10:05 PM (+Fae7) The "anarachists" are just "anarcho-socialists" who are end stage socialists. They believe that private property* is was makes people evil, and if we abolish that and manage everything by consensus, then all people will naturally come to the "correct" conclusion. In other words, they expect everyone to think and decide how they want to think. If there is any dissent, the dissenters will be called wreckers or enemies of the people or what not and purged. *These "anti-property" folk say that there is not such thing as private property, but there is such a things a personal property (e.g. iPads).

Posted by: Grampa Jimbo at November 30, 2014 10:04 PM (V70Uh) Which, as nerdygirl posted, is exactly what happened in Detroit. Perfectly lovely 3 bedroom houses with manicured lawns, picket fences, etc. virtually overnight dropped to almost worthless value. Homes in Detroit in neighborhoods that are not in the hipster downtown area are often priced below $10,000. My uncle, who was one of the last holdouts, barely managed to sell his lovely two story brick home, in which he raised four kids while working at a Ford plant, for $7,000 in the early 2000s. Homes can be bought at city auctions for tax owed only, sometimes in the $1,000 range. See the following for a story about the ebay site the city started to sell it's 16,0000 homes it owns. For a $1,000 you can own one of these. http://tinyurl.com/n9t33j6

The left cannot take any ridicule, and they are not used to receiving any, so when it happens, they have no idea what to do. As long as you don't go over any language lines, Twitter pretty much will leave you alone. And yes, it is much fun to go after lefties on Twitter and watch them stumble around.

dang, butch beat me to it about Argentines/Italians/Spanish/British (hadn't heard the "act French" part before).

 

He also correctly alluded to the fact that mass migration occurred into Argentina (and Uruguay, and Brazil) long before WWII.  Land-grant type programs, much needed farmers paired up with gobs of fantastic agricultural land in all three countries.   And the results are still visible. 

 

It may finally be changing due to economic dyamics, travel, etc., but one interesting thing about South American Euro immigrant communities was that many of them kept their native languages alive for several generations, unlike the assmilationist experience in the US.  So back in the 1980s I found myself at parties in southern Brazil where the German-speaking Chilean visitors were yapping in krautish with the local German descendants (all of these younger people).

 

I believe in WWII, when the US "rented" Brazil to be part of the Allies ($$$$ and steel plants to strongman Getulio Vargas to put aside his country's pro-Axis skew and allow US bases and provide some infantry for the Italian campaign), Brazil had a sort of awkward moment when it was realized that the two primary Axis languages (German and Italian) were still the K-12 language of instruction in many areas of the south.  Oops.  So only then was Portuguese mandated, nationally, as primary educational language.

 

Of course the largest (by far) Japanese emigre community was already long thriving in Sao Paulo, but there wasn't much bother about them.

Jean, I was quite surprised when my German proved useful in southern Brazil, my first month there, before my Portuguese was up to speed.  By the end of 6 months, I was making side cash tranlating and narrating regional development bank materials into English for presentations in DC (gigs provided by the mother of one of my, uh, "friends" I met along the way).

 

Impossibly great time that was.  Also interviewed the head of Brazil's space program, who later turned out to also be head of of their secret nuclear weapons program.

No, wait.  The fact that the US info environment is still mostly shaped by the individuals and institutions exemplified by these two idiots actually confirms me in my pessimism.  Which is a poor word, connoting emotional elements, when in fact I simply have conclusions and predictions based on dispassionate analyis .....

Now with cable and the internet, celebrities can reach more people than ever, but the audience is diluted because there are so many choices out there.

The general idea has always been that Isabelita was led around by her advisers and later advised to abdicate in favor of the Junta since she was clearly in above her head. 

Recently one of the judges who had served on the panel trying crimes against the  members of the junta stated that they never could quite prove Isabelita had any input on the political killings and human rights violations.  He stated that Isabelita had not been a terribly effective or organized person.
He also stated that the Nuremberg trials only tried 20 Nazis because they only had 20 docks, so implied that they only had so much time and stomach for trials in Argentina.

334 Another problem with service animals is that there are no legal requirements as far as documenting an actual need, or requirements for training. So you have seeing eye dogs, and some others that are trained by organizations who really know what they are doing and place blind people with dogs that are used to any kind of situation. The training that goes into these animals is extensive and expensive. I was on a cruise where there was a blind guy with a seeing eye dog. That animal got him all over on this huge multi-level cruise ship that was packed full of a couple thousand passengers. At the other end of the spectrum people can claim that their animal is needed for their anxiety, and they don't have to have any particular training.

346 There used to be a time in the US when the Communist Party was outlawed, and being a member or having a relative who was a member would cost you a job. You had to list all the social organizations of which you were a member, and you had to list the names and nationalities of all your relatives including grand parents , including relatives of your spouse, if you worked in 'sensitive' government positions that required security clearance. Eventually we'll get to the point where politicians are elected to public office by running as communists and there will be an affirmative action policy to insure the communists are favorably represent in movies, and are given preferential treatment in academia and public office.

350 One of my brothers once lived in St. Louis. He was telling me that Ferguson had been a really nice area. The city of St. Louis had some areas that were becoming crime infested and nasty. The St. Louis officials worked out some kind of policies that gentrified parts of St. Louis, but caused the low income people to move to Ferguson. I wasn't really listening to him, but he was talking about some kind of bounties being paid to people to either move in or move out. I'm not sure if they paid poor people to move out, or paid middle class people to move in.

Probably that I have zero specialized loading gear and have never practiced/improved reloading technique (5-shot pump action, Mossy 500).

The ValJar/Oblama relationship is like the Hillary/BJClinton relationship.

The Left loves to lecture us about 'Bullying'.

They even have launched 'initiatives' to Combat Bullying.

 

And yet, it strikes me, that what we're seeing is Bullying on a massive scale.

 

The so-called protestors? ...They are fukn bullies.

If not terrorists.

 

Barky is a bully too.

And in his typical form, he condemns Bullying while engaging in  it on a daily basis!

 

So we've got bullies on our streets and Malls, terrorizing children and torching businesses.

And we've got the BullyKing in the White House, agitating them and protecting them.

 

Even their passive-aggressive demonstrations are a form of bullying, too.

428 Okay, time for me to risk getting the barrel again... What's weird is that the (peaceful, nondistruptive) Ferguson protesters have half a point: after all of the Brown/Wilson bullshit, it's going to be next to impossible to police Ferguson effectively. And we've all talked ourselves here at AOS about the hyper-'us-vs-them', militarized culture that police seem to have these days. I personally would very much welcome a full investigation into the culture of the Ferguson PD, including its Chief.. Are the protesters right, and most of the cops are white and not from the area? Bloody unlikely, but it's also very possible its Chiefs are fostering a destructive and confrontational attitude for cops on the beat. Notice that here in LA, although things have hardly been idyllic, there's been a lot less violence. Isn't it possible that has something to do with LAPD trying to foster a more constructive relationship with poor communities here in SoCal? Or do I just sound like another soft-brained liberal who doesn't think the poor non-whites should be held accountable for their actions? I don't know. I just can't shake the hunch: Ferguson is partially the result of the militarized police forces that *we here at AOS* have even recognized are getting out of control.

White cops shoot black criminals all the time. In election years, one such incident is singled out for an extensive media circus -- doesn't matter what the actual facts and circumstances are.

----------

 

It's fairly common these days for police officers to not live in the area that they work in. 

 

Either their 'work area' is a cesspool, and they don't want to expose their families to it...or it's an area that they can't afford to live in.

 

Ferguson used to be a quiet, mostly white suburb of St. Louis.

Now it is mostly black.

I'm pretty sure that Ferguson would like to have more black police officers on duty there...so I suspect that the reason that they don't, is simply for lack of applicants.

 

As to the subject of 'militarization' of police departments...

We're seeing now why that's not such a bad idea...aren't we?

 

Or maybe it's better to have to call in the National Guard, and hope that they will come.

Maybe they're ignoring crime they shouldn't. Maybe they haven't been tough enough on the gangs, which are still just as brutal and cruel as ever.

Rioting, as seen in the Zimmerman case and in Ferguson, along with Rodney King and OJ Simpson, etc., is not all that common. Nor would you expect it to be -- in that the people who live there always suffer from it more than the outside agitators that show up to make things nastier.

There are some statistics about Ferguson that make me wonder if there are some deeper issues going on there. Ferguson is 67% black yet nearly all of the Ferguson police are white and live outside the town. Likewise the city council and school board are almost perfectly white. Furthermore something like 20% of the entire city budget comes from fines and court fees from the city residents.

Now all of this may have come about naturally and may not reflect anything sinister at all. But it'd be difficult to come up with a civic situation any more perfectly tuned to create racial strife.

Once they moved to the county, he rarely ran across them. It got so bad that the City started a program to give bonuses to cops that lived in the City, and they started to let them take their cruisers home. Of course, the counties already did all of this, and the county cops chose to live in their counties because they were all pretty safe.

In Ferguson, no...I don't think the transformation came about 'naturally'.

 

I read something about this, a couple of months ago.

 

The city fathers of St. Louis exported some of their inner city problems to Ferguson, by way of Section-8 vouchers and other government programs.

 

This was in vogue 20 - 25 years ago, when cities were looking to "reinvigorate" their downtown areas.

It's like these city council people all attended the same seminar on it, or something.

 

They tried to do the same thing in Oklahoma City too, at about that time.

But the people in my small, quiet area, stood up to them and protested.

They found other areas to transplant their inner city 'problems'.

I have a hard time being sympathetic to any side except those that got burned out.

The blacks? 96% of them vote for donks?

483 From a previous comment, apparently ferguson was mostly white, then the demographics changed ... and there might be some sort of "gentrification" program and payouts (elsewhere) that are involved. When did Ferguson change? How was it caused? If this is recent, say within the last 10 years, then getting qualified black candidates for the PD might have been, and still be, virtually impossible. As for the City Council, again, if the change is recent, there may have been no interest in "change" ... the FSA has been getting its FS, and only now (and if there was relocation money paid, it might be gone now) are beginning to care about who is on the City Council.

Here's the thing -- what's going on with the city of Ferguson is predominantly the business of the citizens of Ferguson. The only reason that we have even heard of the place is ginned-up outrage put forth through a malign media. Why assume that there's a "there" there at all? Why not let the city return to its previous obscurity? Why not let them work out their own problems with their own processes?



I see no benefit to nationalizing or Federalizing any of Ferguson's local problems. Now I happen to know that they have a great big non-local problem -- in that there are gangs of protesters and provocateurs (including the media) roaming their streets. And certainly, they keep chirping along about anything at all to keep the focus off of "WTF are all these non-locals doing in some little random city of 20,000 people?"

Because a human being who does not have any form of self regulation is the dangerous, the most brutal, creation on this planet.

OK -- let's start here:



"I personally would very much welcome a full investigation into the culture of the Ferguson PD, including its Chief.. Are the protesters right, and most of the cops are white and not from the area?
Posted by: qdpsteve at December 01, 2014 12:33 AM (fGApK)

I've wondered the same thing.

Posted by: Maetenloch at December 01, 2014 01:06 AM (wqVD1)"


The reason I'm talking about nationalizing a local problem is because I read the above as advocating a Federal investigation. I happen to disagree.



On the other hand, there is clearly a non-local problem of a bunch of Grievance Party members and the media trying to inflame the situation. They've pointed at "Brown was an innocent" -- and everybody looked, and, surprise surprise! He was a thug. They pointed at "hands-up" -- and everybody looked, and forensics doesn't support that. They pointed at "harmless" -- and everybody looked, and the video with the shopkeeper blew that. And they're pointing at the whiteness of the city council and police department.



At some point, can we stop looking wherever they point and get to the real question -- what the hell are those assholes doing in Ferguson? The answer is clearly "trying to stir up trouble", but the spotlight shouldn't be pointing at anything else. It should be staying right where the problem is.

552 Treadwell was that special snowflake who tried to get chummy with a bear.  The bear thought Treadwell was yummy.

Patal was that college educated guy who went up that trail in NJ with four friends.  They were warned there was a bear in the woods.  Patal was awarded a posthumous degree - probably in Biodiversity.

574 The reason I'm talking about nationalizing a local problem is because I read the above as advocating a Federal investigation. I happen to disagree.

Well I wasn't.

I just suspect there were some structural issues in Ferguson that led to the current racial situation over and above whatever outside activists may have brought in. There's no easy way fix them from the outside but we should be able to acknowledge that some of the complaints by locals might be legitimate.

At some point, can we stop looking wherever they point and get to the real question -- what the hell are those assholes doing in Ferguson? The answer is clearly "trying to stir up trouble", but the spotlight shouldn't be pointing at anything else. It should be staying right where the problem is.

Um no. We're smart people - we can talk about multiple things at the same time.

And who's demanding we shift the spotlight to something else? There's a big difference between just discussing and considering something versus making it the new central focus of Rightwing punditry, no?

You seem very focused on outside agitators but my point is that Ferguson was probably politically/racially troubled before anyone else ever even heard of Ferguson. And that some of the locals' complaints may not be entirely bogus.

Posted by: Maetenloch at November 30, 2014 11:53 PM (wqVD1)

575 575 Maet,

Ferguson's problem was apathy and block voting.

It's hard to argue that there was some conspiracy to have non consensual rule when everyone involved in "the problem" was democrat.

There seems to be a national, systemic belief brewing that law can only be just for blacks when it is enforced by blacks....

Balkans?

We're already soaking in it.

The media is a LOT more "concerned" with the "gentle giant" than the Utah shoot where a white perp was gunned down by a black cop in a clean shoot or the Detroit case where a Black teen was killed by a black cop in a less clean shoot.

Are those cases less indicative of structural issues, or were they less likely to whip Democrat passions in the desired direction?

577 It's hard to argue that there was some conspiracy to have non consensual rule when everyone involved in "the problem" was democrat.

And who's making this argument? Not I.

Are those cases less indicative of structural issues, or were they less likely to whip Democrat passions in the desired direction?

Yes - none of the other case had the same demographic/racial pressures that were present in Ferguson. Because of the demographic imbalance between residents and police and government officials Ferguson was primed for almost any police shooting to become a racial cause celebre.

Posted by: Maetenloch at December 01, 2014 12:25 AM (wqVD1)

578 QDP Steve,

What the hell does LE's point of origin have to do with anything?

In 1980s Miami most of the cops were from out of town as well....

Shit happens, is the racial make up of LE so vital that perps get "3 free assaults" against cops that "are not looking like my son had I had a son?"

We tried to put quotas away in the 90s so qualifications were king.

Obviously the state should start paying blacks as much money as it takes to lure them into LE  and if need be concurrently lower the moral background and criminal checks.....

I'm a lot more worried about community's utilization of paranoia to try to justify its members flouting of the law than I am of enabling Eric "my people" Holder of getting to play race detective again...

Posted by: Sven10077 at December 01, 2014 12:28 AM (/4AZU)

579 578 Maet,

It seems to me the jackass in the living room is the multi-million dollar in arrears to the Feds race hustler who makes every white on black shoot a cause regardless of facts.

If a grand jury witness turns out to have been executed as was alleged it's at least as important as the paint scheme of Ferguson PD.

Posted by: Sven10077 at December 01, 2014 12:32 AM (/4AZU)

580 488 eman,

Precisely, of course as Detroit shows Al $harpton is not so bothered by black teens being blasted by black cops....

I'm glad America's civic virtue has Sharpton, Holder, and ValJar/Obama as racial referees....certainly no English on the ball there.

WND pointed out when the media's editorial overlords decided that because Donkey needed black turnout whipped Ferguson was gonna be a thing that the same day in Salt Lake City black cop shoots white guy - no problem...

http://tinyurl.com/lolg5wf

Here's local reporting of the incident...

turns out homeless drunk white guy caught "on body camera" not complying with "non-white" cop's orders can be gunned down and "no harm no foul"...

now frankly I think the Utah guy committed suicide by cop but I also think the "non-white" cop made a clean shoot....

Question for the media is "the gentle giant" also "non-white" or is the name of the game here that even when they are the ones with the gun and the badge the blacks can never be an oppressor or wrong so the cop lost his race?

I was following QDPSteve's line of reasoning Maet.

I apologize I was on the nook, I'll be clearer and able to link on the PC.

The argument Sharpton Inc seems to be slinging is that laws and law enforcement can only be just when the racial demographics are honored IF those demographics are African-American b/c I am willing to bet Slim Shady would not be so hot to trot to argue Blacks are over-represented in places like New Llano Louisiana (5 officers 2 black IIRC Blacks being ~39% of the population so we need to hire a mullato for that second African-American's job)?

Even slate argues this is a non-starter and at the end of the day "cops are blue"...

http://tinyurl.com/p7u7gdo

Anyway I think the professional grievance set's idiocy is focused on precisely the wrong things.

The ethnicity of a department is a lot less important than its professional conduct and responsiveness to community oversight.

They are SO desperate to get their way through means besides the ballot box they Jedi handwave away assault and pretend Brown was "a child, an unarmed child who done no wrong"....

You can't expect rational conversations with irrational actors who pretend in sincerity that a strong-arm robber was "hands up don't shoot" kneeling in surrender when he was "executed in cold blood" when precisely NONE of the facts in question support that.

584 On the Ann Arbor shoot....

http://tinyurl.com/ntkfonw

Stephens, Rosser's boyfriend, told The Ann Arbor News that lethal force wasn't warranted in this case.

"Why would you kill her?" Stephens said on Monday. "It was a woman with a knife. It doesn't make any sense."

Stephens said he initially called the police on Rosser because they were fighting and he wanted officers to escort her out of the house.


and THERE you have it....

Gee I called YOU guys(the cops) b/c a situation was out of control but now in hindsight even her having a knife is not justification for shooting her....

Look I am biased on these things, I was fortunate enough to have a cop not shoot my hatchet wielding bi-polar mother b/c he knew us and used restraint and simply knocked her out and dislocated her shoulder.

I thanked him for his restraint, I guess I should have gainsayed his use of ANY force?

We live in an insane asylum where a large % of the population thinks their skin is a get out of jail free card.

585 I don't get why anyone was thrown by the black stormtrooper. It isn't as though the armor can only be worn by Jango Fett clones. Remember "Aren't you a bit short for a storm trooper?"

It isn't clear when the bulk of the movie is set. Much of the original cast has been brought back to play their characters in their dotage but that isn't necessarily the era for most of the movie. But in any case it's seems likely it will be set after the overthrow of the Empire. You'd think they get rid of the storm trooper armor and replace it with something else just for PR purposes but the galaxy seems a much poorer place after two decades of Empire rule. Perhaps they can't afford to produce new armor and the New Republic cops have to wear something.

588 586 -- Epobirs -- According to my SW geek friends, the death of the Emperor didn't equate to 'Empire falls'. Several Governors, and high-level military commanders kept 'The Empire' sorta going for a while as they vied for the vacated top spot.

Me, I'm not gonna try to guess the plot... part of me is pleased at the possibility of a decent SW movie, and part of me doesn't give a shit. The noxious vapors of the Prequels still lingers about me, strongly...

Besides, the views of fanbois are of minimal concern to me, let alone the shrieks of SJWs; and, thought of having to muddle thru the ramblings of fanbois infected with Social Justice Syndrome makes my brain ache...

590 #589

Thing to remember about these new movies: The books, other than novelizations of the movies, are meaningless. If JJ Abrams decided the Empire curled up and died overnight without Palpatine, that is the new normal.

Also, it's like claiming the roman Empire kept going for centuries just because there was an entity that called itself Roman. Occasionally multiple such entities, all claiming to be the One True.
