I usually side with the cops, but this time the cops are black so I’m siding with the criminals.

Nah, I mean, this was outrageous. They just totally killed that nigga.

They were like “this Tire thinks he’s rolling? we ain’t about that because we’re the Scorpions.”


The Memphis Police Department has disbanded a controversial street crime unit whose officers beat 29-year-old Tyre Nichols to death earlier this month. The alleged murder of Nichols set off a wave of protests in the crime-ridden city.

“It is in the best interest of all to permanently deactivate the Scorpion unit,” Police Director Cerelyn Davis said in a statement on Saturday. Davis added that the officers of the unit agreed “unreservedly” with her decision.

Davis’ announcement came a day after the city of Memphis released body camera footage showing the death of Nichols. Five officers can be seen punching and kicking the man, as well as pepper-spraying and striking him with batons. Nichols attempted to flee after he was dragged from his vehicle at a traffic stop. After his motionless body was handcuffed and propped against a squad car, the officers are seen congratulating each other and exchanging fist-bumps.

Nichols died in a hospital three days after the incident, and the officers involved have been fired and charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping, official misconduct, and official oppression. All five officers and Nichols are black.

An internal investigation found that the officers “violated multiple department policies, including excessive use of force, duty to intervene, and duty to render aid,” Davis said in a statement last week.

The Scorpion unit, which stands for ‘Street Crimes Operation to Restore Peace in Our Neighborhoods’, was formed in November 2021. Its 40 or so officers were tasked with patrolling “high crime hotspots” in the city, with a particular focus on gang- and drug-related crimes.

Jason Whitlock had a good segment on Tucker Carlson about this. He said they’re bringing back BLM to distract from the Ukraine war, which is something I had also mused about.

If it’s a distraction, it could well be a distraction from a strategic deescalation.

I know I keep shilling it, but that RAND report saying the US is losing and should end the war is a very big deal.

Related: So RAND Says the US Lost the Ukraine War and Should Surrender. What Next?

The common wisdom was that after the US realized it couldn’t collapse the government of Russia, it would back-off. RAND can’t come up with a reason they wouldn’t back-off at this point, and I think that is a reality that is going to be setting in over at the Democrat Party.

You have all of these media zombies supporting the war, and they might be disappointed when it becomes obvious Brandon is surrendering, but they can be easily distracted with this gibberish about black oppression. Remember when these same people forgot all about coronavirus when they started the Ukraine war up. They will quickly move on to whatever the media tells them to move on to.

Of course, it could also be a distraction from an escalation. I’m not 100% convinced that the US is actually going to back down. There are more indicators than just the RAND report, but none of them are conclusive.

However, if it was an escalation, it doesn’t seem like you’d want to distract your own war cheerleaders. You’d want them as engaged as ever. Right-wingers are harder to distract generally, just because for all of their flaws they do have a bit more independence of thought and personal agency. But if you really needed to distract them, you would do some kind of Hunter Biden investigation.

So if you work through all of that, it actually seems like the return of BLM is a point in favor of the theory that they are preparing to deescalate.

Again: I’m just working this through. Don’t come at me when they escalate and say “YOU SAID THEY WERE GOING TO DEESCALATE YOU ARE SO WRONG.” I have an absolute rule against making hard predictions. You might say “well that’s just a way for you to avoid getting called out for being wrong” but that is a totally bizarre way to look at it. I do not have the ability to predict the future, and I don’t have any sources in the Pentagon, so it would be ridiculous for me to make a hard prediction.

What I am doing, what I always do, is look through the data and analyze what it appears to mean and then say what I think is most likely. All regular readers know that this works about 95-97% of the time. Because I’m just that smart.

In this case, I’d say it’s 70-30, deescalation-escalation. They have to do one or the other, because their frontline has collapsed, and a couple dozen tanks (which no one knows how to operate or maintenance) is not going to fix that. Basically, they have to send in American pilots to fly bomber jets or they have to start to wind it back.

The wind-back would probably involve secret negotiations which you wouldn’t hear about for a long time, possibly through France, and then you’d see Russia draw a line at the river and both sides slow down.

Again, it’s not really good news. It just means they’re moving over to China, and they’re probably going to start-up some kind of conscription, or collapse the economy and tell people joining the military is the only way they can eat.

Speaking of Jason Whitlock…

Whitlock is really the only genuine Christian who is still allowed on Fox News at this point.

I would very much like to see him call out Tucker Carlson for endorsing so-called “anal marriage.”

Related: Tucker Carlson Endorses So-Called “Gay Marriage”

Whitlock might not be willing to risk burning that bridge, but there is no one else who has the ability to confront Tucker on this (unless he gets groyp’d at a public speaking event), and it is obviously the right thing to do.

Tucker’s endorsement of “anal marriage” is an attack on Christianity and all Christians. It is beyond the pale. Every Christian has an obligation to confront him, and Whitlock is the one with that access.

I just tweeted this to him:

We should all be asking Whitlock to do this. Really, by not doing it, he is sharing in Tucker’s guilt, promoting this very uniquely evil sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance.

I hate to put the guy on the spot. But that’s the truth of it.

    Who knows? I have no doubt that it is either work to rebuild Christendom or else these hours will keep getting worse. Perhaps Anglin has sensed the same thing.

    And he does keep nailing how stupid, or just plain evil in Judaizing form, almost all English-speaking Protestantism is. So rebuilding Christendom means either Traditional Latin Mass Catholicism or Eastern Orthodoxy or both. The world actually needs them to reunite, which cannot occur until the Ronan church is cleansed of the Liberal filth ensconced since Vatican II, which was a Council that di the work long desired by Protestant Liberals and Jews to start the Catholic Church disarming itself.

  11. This Scorpion unit sounds like those paramilitary police in Brazil. Since America is becoming like Brazil they need more of these no nonsense Scorpion units. It’s stupid to disband them, they should be expanding them to all over the country. Isn’t that video a good advertisement for them? If America were a civilised and safe country I’d understand that there would be no need for Scorpion cop units but it is not.

    Good on you for quantifying the probabilities.

    Knowing the hardball dickhead character of US neocons, and their penchant for continuing to double down until they are literally chased out as they flee in panic (Kabul, August 2021), I would put it at 10-90, deescalation-escalation.

    This, because Dem Congress Clowns are 100% dickheads; R-party Klowns about 80% dickheads. That’s enough dickheads to stay in this war until the evacuation from Kiev, as the last helicopter takes off from the US embassy with Russian tanks rumbling down Khreshchatyk Street.

    I wouldn’t call Tyre Nichols a criminal. He was stopped for a driving infraction.

    Claims of “resisting arrest” and “reaching for gun” are standard CYO lines thrown out by cops in case of third party camera recording or witnesses. Watch a few videos of cops beating the hell out of arresting a suspect and you them see wailing on him as they shout “Stop resisting! Give me your hands!” It’s almost like the big brother grabbing the little brother’s arms and using them to punch himself while he says, “Stop hitting yourself!”

    The Memphis PD body cam footage aired a lot of “get on the ground” and “stop resisting” but none of the kicks and punches to the head caught by the street camera. Curious. Maybe the cops’ body cams malfunctioned when the punches and kicks were being thrown much the same way the camera to Epstein’s cell malfunctioned when he killed himself. Yeah, that’s the most likely explanation.

  16. Does Tucker actually believe this, or was this “just for the sake of argument”? He’s talking about what most Americans now (appear to) believe.

    The tranny stuff is an outgrowth of the gay stuff, but the gay stuff is the outgrowth of the breakdown of ancient social norms. New York finally enacted no-fault divorce, and had “same-sex marriage” less than a year later.

    Though it goes both ways. England and Wales enacted “marriage equality” in 2014, and by 2022 they had succumbed to no-falt divorce. Never mind 54 years of data in the US. They think they are smarter than us, then adopt our worst ideas.

    This is a Jewish war (aren’t they all?). Eastern Jews have hated Russia since the Kievan Rus destroyed the bloodthirsty, rapacious Khazarian Empire in 1065 AD. The Kievan Rus had converted en masse to Christianity just a few years earlier. The Khazars had converted to Judaism en masse a few centuries earlier. Jews have hated Christianity since Christ.

    @Deep Thought

    Partially disagree…
    “Equal justice under law” is (supposed to be) one of the basic principles of American jurisprudence, but has sadly been overridden by privileges and different punishments depending on not only status, but race and other insignificant differences.

    “Hate crimes” are an outgrowth of the terrible misguided “civil-rights” laws, statutes and mandates as the severity of punishment for the same crime is predicated on the race or status of the victim (recipient), quite often the transgressor receiving a lesser punishment because of the perceived “status” of the victim.
    “Hate crime enhancements” have been used against Whites who commit crimes against blacks…the reverse is never true, although many more crimes are committed against Whites by blacks with a racial animus (which should be considered as long as “hate crimes” are defined as racial in nature).

    Attacks on police officers should be treated as ordinary crimes without “enhancements” as police officers should have the same status as ordinary “civilians”. (Actually police officers ARE “civilians” but are treated as centurions with special status.)
    In today’s America, police officers enjoy a special status which shields them from the consequences of their actions, even if their actions are criminal in nature. The concept of “qualified immunity” is used to shield police officers from criminal culpability, liability and responsibility for their actions as they cannot be sued as individuals. The bar for such lawsuits is set so high, that it is almost impossible for a victim of police actions to prevail in such suits. Under “qualified immunity” the complainant has to “prove” that the “officer’s state of mind” was such that his personal actions were a result of his own egregious “thoughts”, something that is impossible to prove.
    Let’s not forget that police officers are not only permitted but encouraged to “lie” to suspects in order to exact “confessions” and worse from them. Lying to police officers is considered a crime. Why the double standard?

    In the case of prosecutors, it gets worse. Prosecutors enjoy total and full immunity and cannot be sued for their actions. It takes a “special master”— a “judge” appointed to oversee the actions of a prosecutor. This distorts “justice” as most prosecutors do not give a damn about true “justice” but seek to embellish their “track records” with successful prosecutions and “body counts”, true justice be damned.

    A good example of prosecutorial misconduct is that of the Satilla (Brunswick) Three who were initially deemed non-culpable for their actions, but were ultimately charged with crimes after “the powers that be” did not like the decision of the initial prosecutor and “prosecutor-shopped” to find one who would file charges. It took three “tries” before they found one who would prosecute.

    If I had my way, ALL “enhancements” for crimes would be abolished. A crime is a crime is a crime…ALL crimes are “hate crimes”…there is no meed to define and distort crimes as such. Restore true “equal justice under law”.

    Nichols, a native Detroiter who started out as a beat cop. A taciturn workaholic, Nichols had seen combat during World War II, kept his hair in a tight crew cut, and answered to the nickname “Uncle John.” He’d also built up a degree of comity with the black community. Civil rights leaders “regard him as progressive,” the Free Press noted after his appointment.

    Nichols faced a daunting task. Robberies in the city had risen 67 percent in the previous two years. A staggering number of them—some 18,000 in 1970—took place on the street, and 85 resulted in murder. In one of his first orders of business, Nichols instructed his staff to conduct a thorough study of the available data and build a detailed profile of the “typical robbery.” They found that victims were most often “male, not young, nonwhite, and living in or near the neighborhood in which the robbery took place,” while criminals tended to be “young, nonwhite, and armed.” One of the most salient factors, for Nichols, involved the sheer brazenness of the crimes. As he later testified at a congressional hearing on street crime and policing:

    In contrast to what one would believe, most robberies were not being carried out covertly. They occurred openly and in full view of other citizens and potential witnesses on the street. It was apparent that the criminal felt safe in carrying out his act in front of others. He obviously believed that large segments of the community were either so apathetic or intimidated that they would not interfere. His only concern then was to assure himself that there were no police in the area…. In retrospect, the answer seems too obvious: a zero visibility patrol.

    And so STRESS was born. […]

    Peterson joined the Detroit Police Department in 1961, at age 25. During his first decade on the force, according to official records, he was responsible for only six injuries, and received 41 citations and commendations for meritorious service. Then, in January 1971, Peterson was recruited to join an elite, highly secretive unit within the police department. The new unit was created to combat street crime, but it soon became infamous in Detroit’s black community as something closer to an execution squad. Though the initiative’s official designation was predictably anodyne and bureaucratic—“Stop the Robberies, Enjoy Safe Streets”—the unit quickly became known by its more descriptive acronym, STRESS.

    Peterson.. achieved a certain notoriety in Detroit. […] Hoyt marked the tenth shooting death at which Peterson was present over a two-year period. He’d personally killed six men, all black, many unarmed, and wounded five others.

Consider the good that Giuliani’s policies did for New York 25 years ago and and how it’s talked about now by the scum like Sharpton and Van Jones. Ironically it was black lives that benefitted the most from his decisions, especially with murder numbers dropping so drastically.
