From Gateway Pundit:

Atlanta Police Chief Resigns After Deadly Police Shooting of Black Man Resisting Arrest at Wendy’s Drive-Thru
By Kristinn Taylor
Published June 13, 2020 at 5:56pm

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms announced the resignation of police Chief Erika Shields Saturday afternoon after the deadly police shooting of Rayshard Brooks, 27, as he resisted arrest Friday night. Shields was appointed chief in December 2016 by then Mayor Kasim Reed after serving 21 years on the force. Shields was the first openly gay Atlanta police chief.

Police were called to a Wendy’s where they reportedly found Brooks passed out in his car in the drive-thru lane. Brooks allegedly failed a sobriety test and was seen on video resisting arrest by two officers who wrestled with him and lost control.

Brooks stole a Taser off one officer, was shot with another Taser as he fled but was fatally shot when he pointed the stolen Taser at a pursuing officer.

As you’ll recall, the Zeroth Amendment to the Constitution reads:

Congress shall make no law requiring a Black man to be arrested if he’s just not in the mood to be arrested.

    I would think that the minority of women who are temperamentally suited to such a job would in fact be disproportionately lesbian.

    Well put. But it doesn't have to be that way.

    I've long advised "new right" or "dissident right" types to make lesbians aware of how their intersectionality is much weaker a shield than they think.

    We're already starting to see cracks in the facade as carpet munching women wake up and realize that two women have fewer woke points than a guy who slaps on a dress and demands you call him Ma'am. Or a passed-out/drugged up black man of any sort, so long as he meets a violent death while in or avoiding police custody (today's equivalent of a Holy Ikon).

    From Wikipedia:


    Shields is a native of Upstate New York.[1] She earned a bachelor of arts degree in international studies from Webster University and a master's degree in criminal justice from Saint Leo University.[2]

    Before joining the agency as a patrol officer in 1995, Chief Shields worked as a stockbroker in Boston.[3][4] She was the second woman to lead the Atlanta Police Department, and the first openly gay person to do so.[4]

    On December 1, 2016, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed announced that he had selected Shields to succeed Chief George N. Turner, who was retiring.[5]
     

    Anyway if you want to know what's really behind all this magnification of localized (and to my jaded eye fairly normal) mayhem, read the Wikipedia entry linked there on Kasim Reed. This is all about wrangling over taxes, pensions, and gibs.


    I cannot imagine who thought that this would prepare her to deal with Afrilanta's matters of social order.

    You are assuming that Ray Ray's car is in fact titled property of Ray Ray. Even if it is, you are also assuming that Ray Ray has real "equity" in excess of the tow company's bill. If those two conditions aren't met, then Ray Ray's car ain't worf impounding.

    Exactly, he ran away and that’s an admission of guilt. Since cops are literally “the law” at not just enforcers of “the law”, then cops are judge jury and executioner all rolled up into one. Fleeing the law gives them the right to blast this poor fool in the back while he runs. Because cops are they law they must be obeyed, otherwise they’re liable to take your life. You were disobeying the law after all.

    , @Kyle
    @fish

    It’s astounding how many cops just plain make stupid decisions quick reaction moments. I’m honestly not sure how lethal a taser is but if I had to wager I’d say not very. I’ve been shocked by an uncovered power outlet when I was re siding a house. and it is quite shocking, but it’s not deadly. It looks like the jr partners standing around with their hands in their pockets aren’t constantly cycling through mental scenarios about what to do if the perp grabs your taser. Or if they are a lot of those scenarios involve drawing your weapon and unloading lead into the center of mass until the threat is eliminated. It’s stupid, violent, and insane, but it just doesn’t seem right that it should be a death sentence.

    Normally would not recommend anything by Sam Harris (don’t need to keep up on any liberal’s long journey out of the cult) but his podcast on blacks/whites killed by cops is great.

    Go to Sam Harris.org episode is called “can we step back?”

    https://samharris.org/podcasts/207-can-pull-back-brink/

    The content is not great compared to iSteve. Leftys like Sam have decided to simply not discuss the hard truths — instead they use the ancient taboo device to maintain good feelz. But today Sam puts his career on the line!

    So Harris sounds here sort of like Steve waking up to racial realities back in whatever 1980s.

    This thing really is great in its own way though. Because it gives non-leftys a real glimpse into the lib brainwashing: here’s a guy trying to gently break the very bad news to his comrades that the dem racial narrative on policing is emotional nonsense. I guess he thinks he’ll be cancelled by his lib fans and friends for breaking a few taboos. BOO FRICKING HOO.

    Btw found the link on Scott Adams twitter (another guy tap dancing around the taboo issues)….

    During his show the other day, Adams responded to a tweet that said lower IQ explains blacks' poverty and criminality by saying he'd done some research on that assertion and it wasn't accurate. He then proceeded to repeat every long-debunked left-wing defense against the reality of IQ. It was sad, really sad. It's hard to know if Adams really believes this, as he often pretends to hold different views than he does as part of his persuasion technique; for example during the 2016 campaign he expressed admiration for Trump's skills while constantly claiming he disagreed with him and would never vote for him. Then he came out as a supporter.

    If Adams is afraid of being cancelled if he admits there are racial differences in intelligence, he should do like Limbaugh and just avoid the topic. It's more dignified. Having listened to Limbaugh on New York talk radio before he was syndicated nationally, I believe he knows the score but has decided it's not in his best interest to get into it. I would rather someone just keep silent than parrot the progressive view to remain respectable.

    https://www.wjtv.com/news/national-news/texas-mom-left-3-month-old-twins-alone-with-two-other-children-to-get-her-hair-done-authorities-say/

    A 28-year-old black Texas mother left her 3-month-old twins and a 1-year-old under the case of her 7-year-old child “with special needs” for several hours in order to go to a hair appointment. The mother, who looks like she is pregnant with triplets if that is possible three months after twins, was arrested with her new hair, a bunch of stringy braids.

    Although not mentioned in the article above, Google directs us to a news story from just one year ago about the arrest of this woman, 26 at the time, in an assault and (metal broom handle) stabbing of an 18-year-old black woman.

    https://www.houstontx.gov/police/nr/2019/apr/nr190408-07.htm

    HPD patrol officers responded to a person down call at the above address. Upon arrival, they learned several females had been fighting during which Ms. Davis-Wright had been injured and the suspects stabbed. Investigators then learned Davis-Wright had been beaten with a metal broom handle. When part of the broom handle broke off, Davis-Wright’s mother used it to stab the two suspects in an effort to make them stop beating her daughter.

    Where do black women get the money they spend on their hair? They shoplift the hair products they use from Wal-Mart, we know that, but how do they pay the stylists?

    Oh, here’s another one from the same area, black female substitute teacher, who was hired after “passing a background check,” slugs and headstomps a white 10th grade girl in a foreign language class, faces 20 years.

    The white female teachers seem to specialize in student sex crimes, i.e. seducing the boys.

    Atlanta was burned down once before in the name of liberating Ray Ray's ancestors and punishing their cruel and barbaric masters and it recovered like a Phoenix risen from the ashes, only to start its downward spiral again circa 1967.

    i bet she couldn’t wait to resign, because she didn’t care about the job in the first place. it was about the recognition and the money and pension and maybe a little about the authority to boss around people, but she never wanted to work hard as Chief of Police and take on the real responsibility. as soon as things got hard, she left at the drop of a hat.

    I disagree that women should have no role in police work. I think there are plenty of things they can do. But not as "front line" officers (or whatever the correct term is). Imagine female cops trying to turn back hordes of BLMers, that's clearly absurd. (Unless they were allowed to simply shoot rioters, which would be fine in my book, but probably not fine with feminist types.)

    Normally would not recommend anything by Sam Harris (don't need to keep up on any liberal's long journey out of the cult) but his podcast on blacks/whites killed by cops is great.

    Go to Sam Harris.org episode is called "can we step back?"

    https://samharris.org/podcasts/207-can-pull-back-brink/

    The content is not great compared to iSteve. Leftys like Sam have decided to simply not discuss the hard truths --- instead they use the ancient taboo device to maintain good feelz. But today Sam puts his career on the line!

    So Harris sounds here sort of like Steve waking up to racial realities back in whatever 1980s.

    This thing really is great in its own way though. Because it gives non-leftys a real glimpse into the lib brainwashing: here's a guy trying to gently break the very bad news to his comrades that the dem racial narrative on policing is emotional nonsense. I guess he thinks he'll be cancelled by his lib fans and friends for breaking a few taboos. BOO FRICKING HOO.

    During his show the other day, Adams responded to a tweet that said lower IQ explains blacks’ poverty and criminality by saying he’d done some research on that assertion and it wasn’t accurate. He then proceeded to repeat every long-debunked left-wing defense against the reality of IQ. It was sad, really sad. It’s hard to know if Adams really believes this, as he often pretends to hold different views than he does as part of his persuasion technique; for example during the 2016 campaign he expressed admiration for Trump’s skills while constantly claiming he disagreed with him and would never vote for him. Then he came out as a supporter.

    If Adams is afraid of being cancelled if he admits there are racial differences in intelligence, he should do like Limbaugh and just avoid the topic. It’s more dignified. Having listened to Limbaugh on New York talk radio before he was syndicated nationally, I believe he knows the score but has decided it’s not in his best interest to get into it. I would rather someone just keep silent than parrot the progressive view to remain respectable.

    Policing is inherently a masculine job. Like construction (and the solitary forms of programming) it tends to be male, as nursing tends to be female. In our modern world we allow far-tail women to work in men’s jobs and far-tail men to work in women’s jobs. And there are plenty of jobs that are not strongly sexed.

    But going full-blank slate, “sex is a social construct” leads to problems. Men doing what is inherently a quasi-warrior job do not want to be led by a woman. It’s emasculating and leads to cognitive dissonance. It degrades their job satisfaction and makes for an unpleasant workplace for men, where they cannot be themselves. The police force is a male space. Women are there, in small numbers, as guests. When in Rome. When TERFs complain of trannies in their spaces, that is the same thing. Pee somewhere else.

    On the other hand, it's hardly axiomatic that just because Mr. Rosie has done something, Mrs. Rosie could surely to do it too. I think you have to at least allow that it's an open question whether civilization would have attained the same heights if it had been left solely up to women. Personally, I doubt that it would have, but I don't think it can be proved. Paglia was probably being facetious, and I think if she seriously thought about it, she'd allow it's entirely plausible that women may well have made significant advances even if they generally don't experience the drive to explore new ways of doing things with the frequency or intensity that men do.

    But probably the best thing would be to avoid these these pointless disputes in the first place. So there are often considerable differences between males and females. Great. How exactly that makes ALL females "unfit" for such things as having jobs or holding political office has never been clear to me. Call me a "white knight" but I think the simplest explanation for such claims truly is nothing more than a dumb, embittered misogyny.

    Isn't "taking a knee" acceding to lawlessness?

    I understand that this police chief was under tremendous pressure to give in to the demands of the mob. However, when the mob demands, "Do whatever we tell you to do, or else," isn't that the time for anyone in a position of authority not to give in? Isn't wielding authority a matter of doing what is necessary, however unpleasant, rather than doing what feels good?

    "Taking a knee" would, I think, symbolise the complete abdication of one's authority to the mob. If it represents something else, you'll have to tell me what.

    That’s not her fault.
     
    It isn't her fault that she has been placed in this position, no.

    It is her fault that when the moment came to decide between upholding the law and lawlessness, she chose the latter. Unless, of course, you want to make the claim that this woman is not responsible for her own, presumably conscious, actions; that's up to you.

    If "taking a knee" is required to keep your job, I think you owe it to yourself to ask: is this job worth throwing away my self-respect?

    Perhaps that is a question we are all going to be faced with in the near future. I do not know the answer to it.

    I also do not know why this woman seems to have chosen the worst of all worlds. Why anyone would choose to "take a knee" and then resign is beyond me. It's as though she didn't think her own job was worth fighting for (and for all I know, perhaps it was not).

    I recall two recent occasions when I was forced to wait by blacks.

    In the first, a young, unintelligent, ghetto-looking young black man was at the pharmacy counter at CVS. He was supposed to pick up a prescription for someone. The white clerk searched for an Rx with the name he was given and couldn't find it. The black wasted considerable time asking him to look again, to try a slightly different spelling of the name, called someone to check on the name, all to no avail. A fairly long line had built up behind this guy and another clerk opened a register to handle it. The first clerk continued to fret about nervously looking over and over in the same places for an Rx that apparently wasn't there. Perhaps it had been phoned in to a different pharmacy or perhaps there was no Rx at all. It was clear the clerk didn't dare tell the black he couldn't help him for fear of him making a scene and calling him a racist.

    In a second situation, a black woman held up a line at the post office by presenting herself at the counter with some items she wished to ship but that weren't packaged. Normally, the white clerk would point out the packing supplies that are for sale and taken the next person in line; however, because it was so obvious that the woman was stupid and couldn't be expected to deal with this herself, the clerk let her go get the supplies she needed to the counter (twice because she brought the wrong stuff the first time), packed up her stuff, addressed it for her, and put on the postage while the line grew. No one in the line said anything. I think it's understood that the white clerk was handling the situation as best she could without risking her job.

    For the record, I was interested in how many police chiefs, full stop, have taken a knee, not how many women police chiefs have taken a knee.

    However, now that you have mentioned it, how about a breakdown of the following For Strictly Informational Purposes Only:

    1) What percentage of all US police chiefs have taken a knee? Please list the names and cities of these police chiefs so that the luckless American taxpayers can tell whether their particular city is coming up short in the "value for money" department or not.

    2) What percentage of the police chiefs who have taken a knee are women?

    (After clamouring for decades to be made police chiefs, it is only fair that the taxpayers have the information they need to decide whether putting women in such roles was a mistake or not.)

    3) What percentage of the police chiefs who have taken a knee are homosexuals?

    (Same rationalisation as above: is making homosexuals police chiefs a good idea or not?)

    4) What percentage of the police chiefs who have taken a knee have kept their jobs?

    I expect this last question to be of interest to both taxpayers and estate agents (and, very possibly, police unions).

    is there ANY Police Chief who is not a woman or an african?! what an incredible realization over the last month that almost every Police Chief in America is a woman or an african or both.

    aside from that. having an open lesbian in this position automatically says up front that you're not serious about police work. having a woman is bad enough - women have no business being police officers in the first place and make things less safe, not more safe. but trying to do the two for one, or even three for one, like the mayor of Chicago, is just nonsense.

    i bet she couldn't wait to resign, because she didn't care about the job in the first place. it was about the recognition and the money and pension and maybe a little about the authority to boss around people, but she never wanted to work hard as Chief of Police and take on the real responsibility. as soon as things got hard, she left at the drop of a hat.

    I disagree that women should have no role in police work. I think there are plenty of things they can do. But not as “front line” officers (or whatever the correct term is). Imagine female cops trying to turn back hordes of BLMers, that’s clearly absurd.

    Chiefs are administrators. They never get near a suspect. They wrestle with the city council interest groups and try to placate the black reveruns

    Los Angels had a black police chief who was 100 pounds overweight had never passed the POST basic police licensing exam and was thus ineligible to carry a gun. He was intensely tutored for the POST exam, took it many times and always failed. So he had to obtain a civilian carry permit. Rumor is someone had to fill out the form for him as he was illiterate.

    During the worst earthquake he was afraid to come to work. The mayor argued with him and finally had to send a police car to haul him out of his house and put him in his office.

    Apparently, this is what is required in post-White America to keep one’s job.

    Isn’t “taking a knee” acceding to lawlessness?

    I understand that this police chief was under tremendous pressure to give in to the demands of the mob. However, when the mob demands, “Do whatever we tell you to do, or else,” isn’t that the time for anyone in a position of authority not to give in? Isn’t wielding authority a matter of doing what is necessary, however unpleasant, rather than doing what feels good?

    “Taking a knee” would, I think, symbolise the complete abdication of one’s authority to the mob. If it represents something else, you’ll have to tell me what.

    That’s not her fault.

    It isn’t her fault that she has been placed in this position, no.

    It is her fault that when the moment came to decide between upholding the law and lawlessness, she chose the latter. Unless, of course, you want to make the claim that this woman is not responsible for her own, presumably conscious, actions; that’s up to you.

    If “taking a knee” is required to keep your job, I think you owe it to yourself to ask: is this job worth throwing away my self-respect?

    Perhaps that is a question we are all going to be faced with in the near future. I do not know the answer to it.

    I also do not know why this woman seems to have chosen the worst of all worlds. Why anyone would choose to “take a knee” and then resign is beyond me. It’s as though she didn’t think her own job was worth fighting for (and for all I know, perhaps it was not).

Because it gives non-leftys a real glimpse into the lib brainwashing: here's a guy trying to gently break the very bad news to his comrades that the dem racial narrative on policing is emotional nonsense.

    For my entire adult life, I've had an extreme aversion to being behind black people in lines at both convenience stores and fast-food drive-thrus. For some reason, it always seems to take them four or five times as long to complete these tasks as I think should really be necessary. It seems very difficult for them.

    Society has refused to do anything about this problem for decades, and has just allowed it to fester. Now, we are reaping the fallout from this negligence.

    I grew up with a lot of black friends. In my experience, nobody thinks for one second about what they want until they get to the speaker. Then they talk over each other at the same time to the befuddled teenager trying to take it all down. Then someone changes his mind. Then someone else. Then someone changes it back.

    At a McDonald’s once, a friend insisted on getting a Whopper Jr. and argued with the employee for way too long about it even when told they only sell those at Burger King.

    This seems rather circular to me. Men have monopolized power in the past, therefore civilization depends on men monopolizing power. Or something.

    Not that I’m advocating matriarchy. I can’t figure out if “matriarchy” is a deliberately mendacious straw man or some sort of mental tic which prevents male chauvinists from considering the possibility of a balance of power rather than one sex ruling over the other.

    It’s not that they find it difficult (except at the bank), but that they enjoy making non-blacks wait. It’s a game they play.

    They even have a sort of sixth sense about when someone’s behind who can be inconvenienced. On the Berkeley campus about 20 years ago I was waiting to fill my cup at a self-serve coffee station. The black woman ahead of me was so huge that there was no way she could even see I was there, but she sensed me, and said, “you better relax.”

    Replies: @Anonymous, @Harry Baldwin

    I recall two recent occasions when I was forced to wait by blacks.

    In the first, a young, unintelligent, ghetto-looking young black man was at the pharmacy counter at CVS. He was supposed to pick up a prescription for someone. The white clerk searched for an Rx with the name he was given and couldn’t find it. The black wasted considerable time asking him to look again, to try a slightly different spelling of the name, called someone to check on the name, all to no avail. A fairly long line had built up behind this guy and another clerk opened a register to handle it. The first clerk continued to fret about nervously looking over and over in the same places for an Rx that apparently wasn’t there. Perhaps it had been phoned in to a different pharmacy or perhaps there was no Rx at all. It was clear the clerk didn’t dare tell the black he couldn’t help him for fear of him making a scene and calling him a racist.

    In a second situation, a black woman held up a line at the post office by presenting herself at the counter with some items she wished to ship but that weren’t packaged. Normally, the white clerk would point out the packing supplies that are for sale and taken the next person in line; however, because it was so obvious that the woman was stupid and couldn’t be expected to deal with this herself, the clerk let her go get the supplies she needed to the counter (twice because she brought the wrong stuff the first time), packed up her stuff, addressed it for her, and put on the postage while the line grew. No one in the line said anything. I think it’s understood that the white clerk was handling the situation as best she could without risking her job.

    Btw found the link on Scott Adams twitter (another guy tap dancing around the taboo issues)….

    During his show the other day, Adams responded to a tweet that said lower IQ explains blacks' poverty and criminality by saying he'd done some research on that assertion and it wasn't accurate. He then proceeded to repeat every long-debunked left-wing defense against the reality of IQ. It was sad, really sad. It's hard to know if Adams really believes this, as he often pretends to hold different views than he does as part of his persuasion technique; for example during the 2016 campaign he expressed admiration for Trump's skills while constantly claiming he disagreed with him and would never vote for him. Then he came out as a supporter.

    If Adams is afraid of being cancelled if he admits there are racial differences in intelligence, he should do like Limbaugh and just avoid the topic. It's more dignified. Having listened to Limbaugh on New York talk radio before he was syndicated nationally, I believe he knows the score but has decided it's not in his best interest to get into it. I would rather someone just keep silent than parrot the progressive view to remain respectable.

    The content is not great compared to iSteve. Leftys like Sam have decided to simply not discuss the hard truths --- instead they use the ancient taboo device to maintain good feelz. But today Sam puts his career on the line!

    When he said “black kids adopted by white families end up having similar IQ’s to their adopted families” I almost crashed my car. Umm no they don’t.

    True but there’s a little subtilty there:

    If you check when they’re young (kindergarten-ish) they DO have similar IQ’s (or iq test scores) as their adopted families.

    But by adulthood they trend to birth family.

    Same reason why “headstart” doesn’t help much in the long term.

    Well, your personal view is wrong.

    For lack of physcial strength (among other reasons), your gender could never have forged axes, hewn wood, and built even a rudimentary log cabin -- to say nothing of quarrying rock and building stone structures.

    Paglia was 100% correct.

    Had women been in charge, we would all still be living in huts -- because marsh reeds and savannah grass are about the only building materials your gender is physically capable of handling. Oh -- mud too, I suppose.

    Civilization was built 100% by men, and your gender has just been along for the ride. That's a fact, although to a feminist kook like yourself it undoubtedly stings.

    It's generally not lethal, although there are exceptions, but a couple of facts may have eluded you.

    First, the taser sorta looks gunlike, so it's something a drunk might grab if he was going for the cops gun just like Mike Brown did. Do you understand that grabbing a cops gun is generally the opening move to attempted murder?

    Second, a taser ride renders even a fit man unable to function for up to a minute. Plenty of time to actually disarm the cop and then we're back to attempted murder.

    Third, it's alleged that he fired the Taser at the cops face. I have no idea if that is true or not. However if it is true that constitutes an attempt at grave bodily harm, because the barbs on a Tazer line will tear up someone's eyes very fast and also blind them.

    So if you think it through, grabbing a taser off of a cop is likely the beginning of a lethal attack on the cop.

    Are there any more white big-city police chiefs or, for that matter, school system superintendents? In all these riot cities so far, the police chiefs have been non-white males. Charlottesville, too, was the same. White ceilings in police departments? I think sheriff's departments are still more representative.

    The Los Angeles public schools are now headed, oddly enough, by a highly non-diverse financier named Austin Beutner, half-Jewish, half-German, a 61-year-old white man with a wife and 4 kids. I haven’t paid much attention to him, but he doesn’t seem to make the usual unforced errors of his predecessors, at least not so far.

    LAPD is headed by a white guy named Michael Moore, although it says his family is Basque, which makes him a little bit Spanish.

    The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, looks like the dad on “Modern Family,” although he has a claim to be a little bit Mexican.

    What is she really risking?

    Also, while she's decrying the excesses of the moment, she's not decrying the egalitarian system from which it all originates. The culture of victimization arises necessarily from the colorblind, egalitarian worldview, because people are not equal, race does exist, and the disparate outcomes keep cropping up and under the egalitarian worldview can only be explained by systemic injustice.

    Raising two to three children properly at prime fertility age doesn't mesh well with being society's prime innovators and leaders, because most of your time from about 18-38 or more should be devoted to your children and family.

    Chiefs are administrators. They never get near a suspect. They wrestle with the city council interest groups and try to placate the black reveruns

    Los Angels had a black police chief who was 100 pounds overweight had never passed the POST basic police licensing exam and was thus ineligible to carry a gun. He was intensely tutored for the POST exam, took it many times and always failed. So he had to obtain a civilian carry permit. Rumor is someone had to fill out the form for him as he was illiterate.

    During the worst earthquake he was afraid to come to work. The mayor argued with him and finally had to send a police car to haul him out of his house and put him in his office.

    San Francisco had a Chinese woman Chief. I still knew a lot of men police then Nobody cared. It’s not like Lieutenants leading troops into battle. The Chief’s in headquarters somewhere, and the police are out in the precincts just putting 8 hours and counting the days till they can retire.

    Nobody cares. White women and gays are much more respected by White men police than some 50-10o pound overweight black man who can’t even read and was affirmative actioned to the top.

    Only men who ever worked in law enforcement should pontificate about the relation of chiefs to the troops, especially in big cities like Atlanta

    Men who never worked in law enforcement who pontificate about the relation of the chief to officers shouldn’t pontificate. Most officers really don’t care who the chief is.

    The Atlanta Chief, like most police, was just counting the days till she could retire relatively young.

    Well put. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

    I’ve long advised “new right” or “dissident right” types to make lesbians aware of how their intersectionality is much weaker a shield than they think.

    We’re already starting to see cracks in the facade as carpet munching women wake up and realize that two women have fewer woke points than a guy who slaps on a dress and demands you call him Ma’am. Or a passed-out/drugged up black man of any sort, so long as he meets a violent death while in or avoiding police custody (today’s equivalent of a Holy Ikon).

    From Wikipedia:

    Shields is a native of Upstate New York.[1] She earned a bachelor of arts degree in international studies from Webster University and a master’s degree in criminal justice from Saint Leo University.[2]

    Before joining the agency as a patrol officer in 1995, Chief Shields worked as a stockbroker in Boston.[3][4] She was the second woman to lead the Atlanta Police Department, and the first openly gay person to do so.[4]

    On December 1, 2016, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed announced that he had selected Shields to succeed Chief George N. Turner, who was retiring.[5]

    Anyway if you want to know what’s really behind all this magnification of localized (and to my jaded eye fairly normal) mayhem, read the Wikipedia entry linked there on Kasim Reed. This is all about wrangling over taxes, pensions, and gibs.

    I cannot imagine who thought that this would prepare her to deal with Afrilanta’s matters of social order.

    Just using my common sense, I wouldn't shoot a man in the back to stop him from getting away over a DUI. No doubt resisting arrest is serious and must be punished. But if you can't catch him on foot now you can track him down later and arrest him when you have enough muscle with you and the courts can, or should, punish him then. We should set a pretty high bar for when we want the police to use deadly force.
    As for rioters committing arson, shoot on sight is 100% reasonable.
