This video is 19 seconds long and the first 10 seconds are nonviolent. Then, the peacefulness intensifies, as they say lately.

If this were a scene in a Tom Cruise movie, the hero couldn’t have saved the damsel in distress with fewer inches and milliseconds to spare. Of course if it were a Tom Cruise movie, the violence would be blocked out by the fight choreographer much more clearly to reduce audience confusion and make the tension last longer.

In reality, Officer Nick “of Time” Reardon pulled up to a scene of inscrutable chaos (e.g., one sideshow was a man kicking a girl in the head a few feet from the cop, almost kicking the cop on his extensive follow-through) and somehow the policeman made the key decisions correctly.

  5. Steve’s comparison to Tom Cruise, Mission Impossible movies is spot on.

    My wife loves them, and we have been watching some right now. — Steve gets it! — The hero magically makes the shot, grabs the finger-hold on the cliff, slides his motorcycle along PCH without falling, etc.

    The cop who shot Knife Girl was Ethan Hunt in that instant. Truly Amazing.

    The local wokists in the DA, police and elsewhere have already clearly laid a foundation for arguing the knife was not really a threat to the “lives” of the other girls. The grand jury and other charging entities will move forward as if she had a bare fist and was attacking with that.

    I wonder how many woke police embrace the philosophy as an easy way to just not have to do anything on the job except sit around and do cleanup after the future first responder social workers are found raped, murdered and burned.

    The thing that strikes me is the Black Thingie that was shot only escalated the situation when the cop showed up. She was at an angle where she could see the cop arrive. She had been standing off, but moved closer to the gal in pink after the cop appeared. The guy who pushed her over only did so after the cop arrived, and he was at an angle to see the cop, too. It’s like they restrained themselves from going too far when they had no one to save them from their own stupid behavior, and when the cavalry showed up, they said to themselves, okay let’s go wild and let him sort it out.

    Repatriation may be politically impossible. For the moment. But the mass movements of people in Europe (and on our own West Coast) in the middle of the last century shows it is not logistically impossible. Even the clown Idi Amin was able to pull it off.

    I don’t see it that way. It looks like something’s about to blow, and I’m not referring to the shooting. If the cops hadn’t gotten there she’d have OJ’d the other girls.

  24. @Blackstone’s Ratio

    People really are serious about the legal principle “Better that 10 black girls get stabbed to death by other black girls than 1 attempted murderer be shot dead by the police”

    One simple solution could be for law enforcement agencies to dispatch only BIPOC-identifying personnel to respond to BIPOC perp/neighborhood/cultural calls. Most of the current madness stems from white cops responding to black criminal behavior. If it reduces down to black cops policing blacks and white cops policing whites, so be it.

    But simple solutions are not in vogue. There ain’t no profit in it 😉

    One thing that pops to mind is that this video may have some interesting effects. For us on this and other sites of a similar nature, this kind of World Star Hip Hop video is old hat. We’ve seen them many many times. But the average good liberal probably hasn’t and by going all in on this, the good liberals may have accidentally exposed their big lie for too many to see.

    As others have noted, the neighborhood is quite nice, but the essential behavior isn’t. So it can’t be the tragic dirt of the ghetto. They see the cops are there and yet, if anything, things get more out of hand and they get more violent. So this fear of cops is also exploded.

    Don’t know how tall the officer that fired the shot is, but from the grainy image of the security camera, the girl clearly is taller than the cop and has a body that is visibly larger than that of the cop.

    She appears to have the body mass and strength to have stabbed that girl in pink real deep, and possibly multiple times.

    Separate neighborhoods would be politically feasible long before the process of stripping someone of their American citizenship and sending them overseas.

    But more fundamentally, it’s not really a matter of moving non-whites out of their current neighborhoods. White people are more than willing to move somewhere new! It’s just a matter of keeping them from being chased down by other groups.

    So, I guarantee you if it were legal, plenty of whites would be willing to move to new areas inside of America where they could just be left alone.

    Enough Black Panther movies from Marvel convincing the weak-minded that a utopia exists…and it becomes a sort of self-selecting thing, to.

    I guess seeing the previous videos from the cop’s POV really didn’t drive home the point that the cop *was present* throughout. This video really does: The car rolls up, the cop gets out, he walks over, slowly, gesturing and calling out…and only *then* does it really start to escalate. I might get the perverted “logic” here (they’ve got a responsible adult audience, so it’s time to show off, hopefully harmlessly?) but it’s really perverted nonetheless.

    As has been said many times in many eras: rough men are needed to protect ordinary folk from the worst elements or alien intruders.

    America will probably break up into several nations after the collapse. The majority of whites are over the age of 45 and dying-off. By the time the US collapses the white population may fall below 40%. The peak white population was 197 million, first reached in 2011 and it has now declined back below 196 million and will fall below 190 million over the next decade as the median age of whites approaches 50 years-old. Too old to make much of a difference in the future of America.

    Time will tell, but we can see the future demographics today. The under 40 demographics is our near future. The under 20 demographics is the not too distant future of America. The number of Whites under the age of 20 has declined by 3 million since 2010 while the total number in the US has fallen by 900,000 over the past decade as more whites have died than were born.

    year- Whites under the age of 20-(includes Arabs, Iraqis, North Africans)
    2010 – 41 Million – 55% of this age cohort
    2020 – 38 Million- 49% of this age cohort

    But whites will remain a majority in places like Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming, Idaho, North Dakota and Utah. Whites will be able to flee diversity into these states over the next 25 years if they want to live among mostly Whites. As the white population decline accelerates over the next two decades it will be interesting to see if Whites just fade away or move away.

    I’d expect more Spanish speaking, upticks in corruption and more cartel intrusion but otherwise margaritas and beach life continues as long as you are educated and middle class or higher. Will just be a nicer version of Latin America.

    I basically agree with you — quick thinking, great shot — just pointing out that the exercise to which you refer has different starting conditions. Here it was a second attack. Reardon had time to say “Get down!” three times, presumably to the girl in pink, and fired only when she had gotten out of the line of fire. So he maybe could have done it even faster.

    You’re missing the point. Whites are willing to move to new areas to have their own spaces. We don’t need to move blacks or brown people. We just need walls to protect us once we move to a new place.

    Yeah, but it’s entirely hypocritical to bar black children from your school, then not bar black adults from the kitchen and the custodian’s closet. So-called “segregationists” aren’t willing to pay the cost of the latter.

    Grand apartheid works. Petit apartheid doesn’t.

    Great shot of a great shot.

    I’m a little surprised to hear so little of “warning shot” in the air, as a method to de-escalate. Maybe it’s now forbidden (since Vonnegut’s Dead Eye Dick?).

    Reardon is a hero for saving the life of Girl in Pink, who is unarmed and seems innocent. Knife girl is guilty. Dems want to make the guilty heroes.

    No BLM complaints about a 13 yr old Black stabbing to death another 13 yr old.

    Gonna get worse before it gets better – we need more security cameras.

    90% likely that security camera images will show disproportionate numbers of Blacks violating the law.

    Though even when Israeli mayhem is noticed, the Republican party lines up behind them.

    It’s a Southern thing. You got something ag’inst Dixie, pardner? Are Helen Thomas and Cynthia McKinney your idea of true Southrons?

    Them Arabists are all Ivy Leaguers anyway. Cain’t be trusted.

    It’s the southern version of Christianity. Totally obsessed with the Old Testament. It’s a wonder the celebrate Christmas instead of Hanukkah.
    If they only knew what Jews think of southern Christians

    The house and other homes are beautiful the cars are new, grass and trees. Would be a nice neighborhood were it not for the black residents.

    Along with affirmative action, crime noise , rude viciousness I really resent that they have acquired all those pre 1945 homes by terrorism and conquest. We should have moved the city houses to the suburbs and built nasty boxes on the empty city lots for the blacks.

  89. In Toronto, a frequent comment after a police shooting (especially of an armed minor) was “Why didn’t he just shoot the gun out of the kid’s hand?” With obviously no understanding of how ridiculous that is.
