Not much additional information has surfaced about Saturday’s attempted assassination of two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies in Compton. A man walked up to the police SUV and shot a male and female deputy in the head, then ran off. Both victims are alive but in bad shape.

The latest word is the shooter was a black man in his late 20s or so. No information is available on the ethnicity of the two victims.

Here’s one local’s reaction to the law enforcement officers getting shot (language NSFW):

It’s of course reminiscent of the assassination by a BLM terrorist of two NYPD officers in December 2014. This led to a semi-mutiny by the NYPD against Mayor de Blasio and Hizzoner eventually backing down, allowing 5 additional years of law and order in NYC before this year’s return of BLM.

Sheriff’s deputies in Socal recently shot a black lowlife, so tensions have been high. From the Los Angeles Times:

Dijon Kizzee was ‘trying to find his way’ before being killed by L.A. deputies, relatives say

By LEILA MILLER STAFF WRITER
SEP. 4, 2020

Another angle is that Compton dismantled its police force about two decades ago and signed a contract with the Sheriff’s office to police the one-time home of gangsta rap. While Compton is filling up with Latinos, the politicians are mostly still black. The current black lady mayor of Compton Aja Brown hates the Sheriff’s station in Compton, perhaps for good reason.

The LA County sheriff’s deputies have a notorious tendency to form their own gangs complete with their own gang tattoos.

Members say having their own gangs, or “cliques,” builds esprit de corps.

The deputies’ gang in Compton is supposedly called The Executioners and about 1/4 of the Compton deputies are members and another 1/4th trying to get in to the gang.

It’s hard to get a straight story on the deputies’ gang problem. My guess would be that it’s related to the Sheriff’s Deputies now being 46% Hispanic (30% white, 12% black, and 12% Asian). Having your own gang with matching tattoos probably just sounds cool to Southland Latinos.

So, this latest shooting could be related to the long-simmering Hispanic vs. black war in the L.A. Basin.

But as of yet we don’t know any details to allow us to leap to any conclusions.

    The police gang problem in the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department dates back to the 1980’s before there was a Latino plurality among the officers. This is a long standing part of the policing culture in Los Angeles.

    This is basically correct. The fact that LASD runs the largest jail system in the free world, and one of the nastiest, is also a factor. Different units in the jail are known for having their own “clicas,” e.g., “2000 Boys,” “3000 Boys,” etc. I dealt with the sheriff’s office a lot in previous years both personally and professionally. Parts of it definitely have a very thuggish element that has gotten worse over the years, and reminded me of what cops are like in Mexico.

    Miami traditionally had had a similar dynamic of a heavily Hispanic police department (mostly Cuban rather than Mexican or Salvadoran, naturally) having to deal with black felons. (It’s difficult to be a cop in a city like Miami or LA if you’re not bilingual.) There were a few notorious shootings that led to riots and bogus prosecutions of police. One such prosecution was led by a state’s attorney named Janet Reno who would later become Bill Clinton’s Attorney General.

    In all fairness, the LASD would have to get much, much worse to be anywhere near as bad as, say, the Irish-dominated NYPD of the turn of the last century. Crooked and thuggish cops are hardly some novel, foreign threat to these shores. Policing in the LA area went through a few periods of serious reform starting in the 1950s. You can read the works of James Ellroy for an idea of how bad it was before then. By the 1990s though, demographics had probably stamped out the culture that could’ve supported those progressive and reformist tendencies from the mid-20th century.

    The LA County Sheriff’s Dept is certainly the most powerful LEO stakeholder in the state, possibly second only to the statewide prison guards’ union (but the latter of which has declined precipitously for that exact reason of everybody tiring of kneeling to them). Outside the region few realize that the city is perforated with an archipelago of incorporated/municipal zones, resulting in much budgetary friction. That’s been the California way since the 1930s.

    In 1949, Compton was white, really white.

    “It’s difficult to overstate how white Compton was in the early 50s and late 40s–exclusively white with an extraordinary web of racially restrictive covenants with a very aggressive policing strategy about keeping black people out,” explained historian Josh Sides, the director of the Center for Southern California Studies at CSU Northridge.

    There was no more effective tool in 20th America than the racially restrictive covenant in terms of keeping neighborhoods white, and Compton was not unique in its application of covenants.

    There’s a curious thing about this and that is this: whites believed then, and I think now, that the arrival of black people in their neighborhood will lower property values,” said Sides. “And the really troubling reality is, that that is true.

    When the legality of racially restrictive covenants was destroyed, white developers with the primary goal of turning a profit looked to creating affordable housing for aspiring middle class African Americans who wanted to move to Compton.

    In 1952 with a series of new developments, the demographics change almost over night. “There’s a moment in time, which as a historian to me I find so interesting because it was really kind of a window of opportunity, where blacks and whites coexisted quite peacefully in Compton” from the early 1950s to the Watts riots of 1965, said Sides.

    Former President George H. W. Bush, former First Lady Barbara Bush and former President George W. Bush lived in Compton years 1949 & 1950 at 624 S. Santa Fe Ave Compton, CA

    That LA Times piece on Dijon Kizzee is ridiculously softball and it appears that the dude was a thug of some sort.

    That said, the shooting sounds even more marginal than the Michael Reinoehl killing by the Bombad Fugitive task force the other week.

    Here we have a guy running from the cops who:
    1) had a gun all along, but didn’t pull it out.
    2) ran from and/or punched a police officer
    3) ran some more and dropped the gun
    4) they shot him.

    Later it was added “he was reaching for the gun” that he’d previously dropped.

    I’m fairly suspicious about the added “reaching” since:
    1) it is necessary for the justification but also doesn’t say he actually picked up the gun less yet threatened anyone with it, so it has the feel of someone making the smallest misrepresentation necessary.
    2) if he was going to shoot at the cops why didn’t he pull the gun to start with? Why punch the cop first and try to run away?

    Based on the little info that’s out there it is not unreasonable that a cop could feel threatened in that situation so i don’t think these people should be fired or brought up on charges, however neither does this seem like a particularly laudable shooting or good outcome of a bike traffic stop.

    It does look like the cops overreacted to her presence, but they undoubtedly remember what happened to the cops that took down George Floyd, who died of a drug overdose. The whole thing got twisted by the liberal media because of someone filming. They likely thought this reporter was trying to do the same.

    I also imagine cops are touchy right now, since two of their own were ambushed and shot today.

    Hey liberals, do yourself a favor and just stay away from the cops. They do not have to be the center of your tinfoil hat-wearing crazy-obsessed universe. Quit stalking them, ambushing them, attacking them, trying to frame them for things they didn’t do, defunding them, and quit rioting at their precincts. Cops are human, and they have their limits, too. And you liberals don’t understand what assholes you’re being to a group that is trying to protect the public–including you moronic leftists–from serious, hardcore criminals.

    Liberals behave towards cops like a guy stalking an ex-girlfriend who dumped him. If a random black commits a crime and gets caught by the cops, it’s good news to normal people. But liberals are not normal. They’re obsessed by a poisonous irrationality. They love criminals and hate the good guys. Liberals, go do yourselves a favor and see a psychiatrist.

    The incident raises another uncomfortable issue about police in general: How much time to police spend sitting in some parking lot somewhere doing absolutely nothing? I see it everyday in my town in Illinois. They park in the same spots, sometimes two of them parked driver window to driver window, but their heads down in their laps as the look at their phones. (20 years ago it was a skin mag)

    I have two cousins who are CPD. Both admit to spending most of their shifts parked in a lot behind a building somewhere, just biding time until they can cash in on their pensions.

    I wish no ill will on these PO’s, as I’m sure many joined out of a desire to fight crime, protect the innocent, yada, but the system slowly turns just about all of them into welfare recipients, and it’s not their fault they were shot. This is a lesson to the rest of police. Keep moving and don’t establish any patterns when you do stop. Or better yet, do the right thing and resign.

    For a time the LAPD was claiming to be the best run, most professional police department in the world. They may still make that claim, don’t know.

    One can get (a no doubt imperfect) glimpse into that reformed LAPD with some of the old ADAM 12 episodes from the late 60’s and early ’70’s. Jack Webb was a stickler for authenticity. The police station set used was an exact copy of then (1968) new Ramparts station, down to the door knobs.

    Hehe. Would be interesting to know. Roosevelt, the NYPD police Commisioner/reformer, ran into this very problem a 125 years ago. It was called ‘cooping’ then, and still is known by that term.

    His [Roosevelt’s] most renowned action was the night he and his reporter friend Jacob Riis decided to wander the streets after midnight. They walked for hours and observed what police officers they could encounter walking their beats. On June 8, 1895, a newspaper article appeared with the story on how he found the police asleep at their posts or socializing instead of doing their jobs. A handful of officers ended up in Roosevelt’s office for a formal reprimand and no doubt these men started to behave for a while, at least as long as they feared that Roosevelt would be taking late night strolls.

I see it everyday in my town in Illinois. They park in the same spots, sometimes two of them parked driver window to driver window, but their heads down in their laps as the look at their phones.

    At least they’re on their regular shift. There’s a lot of downtime in police, fire, et al. work. Merely being present and visible in their police vehicle is a good thing. It’s part of policing.

    What’s even more obscene than what you bring up is what we have in the northeast. Police details. Cops stand at construction sites and direct traffic. A job which flagmen used to do. Except you pay flagmen $15/hr. and cops $75/hr. Many times here in Massachusetts I’ve seen 2 or 3 cops standing around looking at at some minor (one-technician) Verizon repair on the sidewalk of a minor thoroughfare, even in cul-de-sacs. That’s why most cops in eastern Massachusetts make six figures and many Boston and Massachusetts State police make over $250-300k/year. I knew a retired Massachusetts State cop who at the age of 46 was retired with a $130k pension and started working a job in federal law enforcement making six figures.

    There are very few cities or municipalities where cops on the job for at 2 years aren’t pulling down well into the six figures and retiring before the age of 50 with a 6-figure pension.

    Why do reporters believe they have a right to get within 10 feet of a tense arrest situation? She could have easily taken the video from a safe distance. Instead, she was determined to be right on top of the cops making the arrest. Anyone less than 2o feet or so from an officer making an arrest can rightly be seen as a potential threat. “There was no where to back up.” Yeah, even if that’s true, you put yourself there voluntarily.

    The late Carl Pohlad (who made a fortune in banking and other businesses and came to the attention of the media when he bought the Minnesota Twins in 1984) grew up in Iowa, went west as a young man and spent time in Compton. From his wiki page:

    He attended and played football for Compton Junior College in Southern California for a short time. Bing Crosby saw him play football and recruited him to play for his alma mater, Gonzaga University in Washington. Pohlad attended Gonzaga but dropped out after the football season of his senior year.

    Another MN connection (expansion MN Vikings in 1961 and 1962) is College and Pro Football Hall of Famer Hugh McEllhenny. From his wiki page:

    McElhenny attended Compton Junior College where he was a starter on Compton’s undefeated football team in 1948.

    Neither one of these guys is listed in wiki’s List of people from Compton, California, but some who are are:

    James Coburn
    Kevin Costner (I read somewhere his family was forced to the Inland Empire because of the Watts Riots in the late 1960s).
    Marilyn Monroe (!)
    Krist Novoselic – bassist of Nirvana

    Dijon Kizzee was ‘trying to find his way’

    A translation is in order for those unfamiliar with Ebonics:

    Dijon was on probation for multiple armed robberies and had decided it was best to keep a lower profile than before. Therefore, he was only dealing drugs part-time; supplementing that income with the occasional ultra-safe mugging, e.g., of an eighty year old women getting around with a walker; and shoplifting essentials like alcohol, cigarettes, steaks and ribs, and the latest ghetto fashion accessories. Because of his straitened circumstances he was visiting the skanks who’d born his many bastard children more often than usual in order to score more of their welfare money. Dijon had also gotten a few more skanks pregnant, figuring more bastards were a good investment in the future.

    One such prosecution was led by a state’s attorney named Janet Reno who would later become Bill Clinton’s Attorney General.

    Hillary Clinton was also impressed by the major role Reno played in initiating the nationwide panic over satanic child abuse in daycare centers that roiled the nation through the latter part of the 1980s and much of the 1990s. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/fuster/etc/miami.html

    Ultimately almost all of these cases were proven to be obscenely overzealous prosecutions of innocent people by out-of-control prosecutors, a Twentieth Century equivalent of the Salem Witch Trials.

    Reno was a truly evil woman. She and Clinton were a perfect match.

    …the major/minor differences between police, sheriffs, and state troopers …

    It’s purely jurisdictional. Sheriffs (from the Middle English shire reeve) operate at the county level, state troopers and state police obviously operate at the state level, and police operate in other jurisdictions, which can include not only municipalities, but also institutions like hospitals and colleges, venues like race tracks, Indian reservations, and even time-limited events like state fairs. There are also a plethora of federal agencies which have sworn officers with police powers, e.g., the FBI, the federal Marshals Serviice, Customs and Border Control, etc.

They are about the same height. In fact, when the shooter fires, she’s aiming the pistol upwards …to shoot at seated people.

    The more interesting issue than this incredibly boring and repetitive “police shoot blacks, blacks shoot police” drama is the extreme degree of pandering to blacks that Republicans, conservatives and Trump supporters have been doing in recent years. Part of what is so strange about these riots and the increase in anti-white hate from the media is that the worse it gets, the more of a frenzy of pandering to blacks we are seeing on the right. That’s the opposite of how these situation used to play out, as recently as the Ferguson era riots.

    It’s an article of faith among conservatives now that a massive shift to conservatism and GOP support has already happened among blacks, despite zero evidence. The more that blacks are used as paid tokens in the conservatard media, the more these fools take that as proof that the “blexit” is real.

    This trend is a disaster for the dissident right. It undermines all of our goals and arguments. We need to be talking more about the spreading cancer of “Democrats are the real racists” style argumentation on the right.

    That one stuck out. I guess very few Jews live in River State Nigeria.

    So, while I don’t think many African Americans are from Nigerian tribes, the strange names thing might be an African cultural trait. Of course Africa is huge and what seems strange to an American might not seem odd to a Nigerian. Though English is their main common language.
