Gone With the Wind, with its famous scenes of the Burning of Atlanta, is being canceled … but we can just watch the news instead.

But CBS News wants you to know “the protests were largely peaceful:”

Protesters in Atlanta on Saturday shut down an interstate highway in both directions and set fire to a Wendy’s where police shot and killed a black man the night before. Earlier Saturday, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stepped down down from the role as tensions mounted over the shooting.

The fire appeared to be contained shortly before midnight. And the protests were largely peaceful with no reported clashes with police in riot gear, according to CBS Atlanta affiliate WGCL-TV

If so, it reinforces the pattern seen since Minneapolis that black rioters have mostly been gleefully stealing, while white rioters have mostly been doing the arson.

    Hilariously, this album was in Bandcamp’s list of top new hip-hop releases this past week.

    The album actually came out two weeks ago, before the riots started. Were they trying to tell us something?

    Should there be a rank contest of most high-risk cities for black riots?

    Like compare the collateral damage from the 1960s (Watts, Detroit) and project which cities are the most in danger.

  6. Clyde says:

    ****** Is this the actual Atlanta Wendy’s burning down where this all went down? Odds are this Wendy’s was black owned and who do you think had jobs there? Atlanta is headed towards shthole Detroit status. Black lumpen-rabble rioting when black lumpen-rabble get rousted by the police. Black lumpen demand to have no police in their lives, then this catches onto the talented tenth who turn out not to be very talented at all.

    CONTEXT:

    Protesters in Atlanta on Saturday shut down an interstate highway in both directions and set fire to a Wendy’s where police shot and killed a black man the night before. Earlier Saturday, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stepped down down from the role as tensions mounted over the shooting.

    The fire appeared to be contained shortly before midnight. Despite the tensions, the protests were largely peaceful with no reported clashes with police in riot gear, according to CBS Atlanta affiliate WGCL-TV

    Surveillance footage released Saturday show the man, Rayshard Brooks, 27, running away from police after he took a Taser from an officer.

    Atlanta police said they were called to the Wendy’s drive-thru Friday night after receiving a complaint that the driver of a vehicle had fallen asleep, forcing customers to move around him. When police arrived around 10:30 p.m. they said they performed a sobriety test on Brooks.

    According to police, Brooks failed the test and resisted arrest.

    Next on the fast food hit list might be:

    1) Burger King: Antifa burns it down for celebrating a pre-capitalist exploitive monarchy. Marx never cared for European royalty so they shouldn’t.

    2) KFC and Popeyes: Blacks burn them down for retaliation for chicken shortages in the past. They later request the US government to intervene to supply more chicken due to burning down stated food chains.

    And so it begins …

    Basically, Blacks understand the magic formula. Burn stuff down, complain about racism, beat the hell out of Whites, loot, and … Whites simply surrender.

    Boris Johnson’s government will fall, within days, because Blacks demand it. Whenever and wherever Blacks demand stuff, Whites simply cuck out and grovel. Look at Mitt Romney. There is literally no one Whiter than Mitt. And he takes a knee and grovels.

    This is coming to every single city near you. Until and unless the following happens.

    All White people turn over all their money and possessions to Blacks. All Whites grovel and abase themselves daily before all and any Black people. All White people without exception give up all power and positions and jobs to Black people. All White people agree that Black people are like Edo Japan Samurai and exempt from all laws and regulations. All Black people are free to loot any time, and the police are forbidden to interfere and White people are required to fill up those stores again daily for more looting. All Black people get free healthcare, while Whites get … nothing.

    Does this sound sustainable to you? Yes every White woman in America want’s to be Warlord Ray Ray’s new sex toy — there was another predictable White woman rage rally in Irvine where they let us White men know just how much they really, really hate us and want us replaced with some random Black thug.

    But for a White man, or Asians, or Hispanics, that’s not a positive sell. Think Hispanics like to see Blacks run wild? Burning stuff down? And then coming to their neighborhoods? Well its a good thing they don’t have some same-national-ethnic group involved in massive criminal behavior to call on when the Police are disbanded.

    Atlanta is toast. So is New Orleans, Birmingham, Charlotte, Charleston, Memphis, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Philly, New York, Boston, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Cinncinati, Buffalo, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and of course Minneapolis.

    White people have no ability to ever, EVER say no to Black demands. Not for over a hundred years has it been possible.

    The unpleasant fact is, black kids being brought up in this current fantasyland are going to be acting even more like narcissistic little mean girls now, and later. I say “mean girls” because there’s a certain feminine quality to male black outrage, owing to a glaring lack of male leadership in the home, which is rarely addressed. Black men are still addicted to the idea of the state helping to raise their spawn, and black women accept it, even though the state wasn’t intended to teach their children decent behavior, and never will be.

    My amplification of your remark:

    Tooth to tail ratio in a contemporary Western army is something less than 1/3 (https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a472467.pdf). Exact value depends on what you think “tooth” is; contemporary forces faced with occupation duties rely extensively on mercenaries.

    Therefore, a contemporary invading Western army is “mostly unarmed” and “mostly peaceful”.

    Try this instead: The mass media have gone beyond misinforming and are now an active enemy.

    THE vexed relationship between the map and the territory suffuses The Society of the Spectacle, Guy Debord’s 1967 masterpiece, which argues that not only authentic social relations, but even the bricks and mortar that frame them, and the tarmac that connects one to another, have all been replaced with their representation; a 1:1 scale model. […] Haussmann’s attempt to impose civic order and authority on the medieval jumble of mid-19th century Paris had not only paved the way for the Spectacle, but it had also afforded its – and his – enemies with the material to rip up for their barricades.

    The only real infrastructure is a killing machine: the army. The Rodney King riots were suppressed by which 13,000 regular army and National Guard troops (also 2015 Baltimore riots which the media made less of because they were under Obama). Trump could decisively halt the riots, it seems he does not care to. As with the–recently retired with $45m–Conor McGregor in a chokehold begging ‘Please don’t kill me’, tapping out, and seconds later getting beaten up by his Muslim opponent’s cornerman in a race riot in the Octagon, yet then being paid for $3m for a nothing much bout. He is a draw for combat sport pay-per-view purchases and it does not matter if he wins, now he is supposedly retiring, Rogan has it right he was distracting attention from the actual UFC competitors.

    In the Spectacle, all that us needed is the ability to flourish in the glare of publicity, and when it is on someone else turn it back to oneself. Indeed, success can be failure. Trump understands that it does not much matter if he is as weak in the White House as McGregor was the boxing ring; keeping everyone wondering about what he might do and thus thinking about him is the thing.

    The fundamental problem is that people’s brains aren’t meant for a mass society (hundreds of millions or even billions of people) in which everyone has a high-resolution video camera in their pocket, and can instantly broadcast footage to everyone else.

    People react strongly when they see someone die, which made since when you could only see 50 or 100 people (the norm for virtually all of human history). But that intuitive response doesn’t make sense when you can “see” one or two billion people, and watch any one of them die. Maybe we can counteract that somewhat by forcing everyone to learn statistics in K-12 education, but only a minority will really absorb it. Otherwise, a new video of a police killing each weekend will cause a similar reaction as it would if people saw that killing in person. We’re in totally uncharted territory here, and the social/political consequences will be massive.

    U of C economist facing criticism for Black Lives Matter tweets is now under further review

    By Elyssa Cherney, Chicago Tribune

    CHICAGO — The University of Chicago is investigating claims that a professor who once chaired its renowned economics department mocked Martin Luther King Jr. and his namesake holiday and then asked a black student in his class if the comments were offensive.

    Harald Uhlig, a tenured professor who has worked at U. of C. since 2007, has also been placed on leave from his role as lead editor of the Journal of Political Economy, one of the field’s top academic publications. The journal will determine “whether it would be appropriate for him to continue in that role given recent accusations of discriminatory conduct in a University classroom setting,” according to an online statement…

    Bocar A. Ba, now a research fellow at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, said on Twitter that Uhlig made the comments during a class in the winter of 2014. Ba earned his doctorate in public policy from U. of C. in 2018, according to his website.

    Ba’s post tagged Uhlig and said, “I sat in your class in Winter 2014: (1) You talked about scheduling a class on MLK Day (2) You made fun of Dr. King and people honoring him (3) You sarcastically asked me in front of everyone whether I was offended.”

    Ba grew up in France, and then moved to Canada, where he did his undergraduate degree. He then did his doctoral studies at the University of Chicago, where he graduated with his Ph.D. in public policy.

    Ba’s research is focused on economics of crime and labor economics, and has always been interested in learning more about how the two intersect. “I realized that no one was focusing on the unintended consequences of policing, like what is the impact of like arresting someone was actually an innocent? What kind of incentives do police officers have? What is your objective function of a police officer? And what are the consequences of these actions?”

    How about the Sailer Strategy will not work because its base of working class white male people without a college degree is too small a base within the electorate in 2020 and 2024, actually it is too small a base even in the year 1984 or 1988, except in the Midwest rust belt, in a system where you have to get 51 percent of the whole electorate in order to win elections, this same problem plagues Bernie’s original strategy of winning based on college age and Millennial white males, basically the Bernie bros. You cannot win an election without getting the vote of the white college educated professional managerial class, especially since the professional managerial class makes up a larger part of the white vote, compared to the 1970s or 1980s. Especially since the Trump and Sailer populist strategy basically relies on a sizable wealth transfer from the white professional managerial elite to the white working class, with the previous elite class basically being OK with this wealth transfer, which is a big ask, without something like racial and ethno nationalism as a unifying ideology among whites of various social class, instead of raceless civic nationalism or Sailer’s citizenism, which is basically a class warfare of the white working class and proles asking for their gibsmedat vs. the college and postgraduate White middle and upper class.

    Plus East and South Asians are mostly college and post graduate educated professional and managerial people working in the coastal service industries, instead of working class people working a union minimum wage factory job in the Rust Belt, so Asians are more likely to identify with the establishment GOP as well, which favors high income voters and business owners, instead of white proles from the rust belt, and the Sailer strategy of basically relying on its version of the coalition of the fringes, basically high income Asians disliking prole Blacks and prole Latinos enough to vote for white populist candidates like Trump, which only financially benefits white proles without a college degree anyway, is not really a viable long term strategy. Whereas the financially rational electoral strategy for high income Asian voters is to vote for pro immigration establishment GOP candidates who will vote for things like H-1B liberalization, which benefits high income Indian managers and entrepreneurs, mass immigration of millionaires from China and India who are willing to pay for substandard property with suitcases full of cash, like they do in Australia, Canada (Vancouver), and London, and tax cuts for business owners and higher income percentiles.

    Basically the Sailer white populist strategy is unlikely to work reliably anywhere, except as a regional party among poor whites in the Rust Belt. And the Nazis could not have won without the coopting and cooperation of the non-Jewish German professionals and managerial elite in the 1930s.

  94. And the protests were largely peaceful

    You could say the same thing about the Civil War. I read The Story of a Common Soldier of Army Life in the Civil War, 1861-1865, by Leander Stillwell, and outside of one major battle and a few skirmishes Stilwell spent very little time fighting. I would say about one percent of his time in the army involved actual combat. So, largely peaceful.

  95. Can the now fired officer sue over his dismissal?

    If he was following departmental procedures, I suspect he too will win the ghetto lottery.

  96. Looking at the video of the Atlanta police killing and combining that with accounts of the shooting, one can see that the police officers panicked when the situation got out of control, but deeper issues relate to how police should handle drunks.

    Some opinions of cops:

    In my state and city, public intoxication is a misdemeanor offense. Police officers dealing with drunks can simply make an arrest and take the person to jail.

    However, I have taken intoxicated people home or turned them over to sober friends.

    Discretion is often based on how obnoxious or disorderly the intoxicated person is being.

    [Phil Yerington, former mayor of Davenport and police lieutenant]

    https://www.quora.com/How-can-a-police-deal-with-a-drunk-person

    First, as a police officer, my job is to determine if the person is a danger to himself or others. I will evaluate this by my observations, other people’s accounts of what happened at the scene and a combination of both.

    If the person is too intoxicated, he/she might need medical attention. I’ll call an ambulance to the scene to evaluate the person. If the person is aggressive, the best course of action is to detain the person for his/her safety. I would handcuff the person and place them in the back of my patrol vehicle.

    In the State of Texas, peace officers have two specific options on how to deal with intoxicated individuals in public. One is to find a responsible, sober adult who would assume responsibility for the person. The other option would be to take them to jail and charge them with public intoxication. They will be there until they are sober and get a citation.

    [Hector Solis, police sergeant.]

    So, the deeper questions are whether the drunk needed to be handcuffed in the first place. Is handcuffing a standing drunkard inherently dangerous in view of the fact that he might easily swivel while both your hands are occupied and shock you with your own taser and you might then have to kill him with your gun?

    Could they just have taken him home? Could they have called for a sober family member to come and walk him home? How much of a danger was he to the public? Was he committing other offenses, such as driving while disqualified?

    What did the cops do about moving the car that was blocking the Wendy’s drive-in window? That was the reason they were called.

    — Starbucks and any other corporation that promotes hostility against whites, asians, and hispanics / favoritism for Africans, and the numerous homes of their executives

    — homes and offices of counterfeiters and thieves, including “Federal Reserve” buildings and the homes of its Board of Governors

    — organizations working to take away other people’s rights to defend their families (“Gun control” lobbies), both offices and their homes

    Only to the extent allowed by law, of course, and changing the law beforehand as needed.

Those resources are needed to protect the homes and lives of the remaining 90-plus percent of us, of all races, as well as hospitals, laboratories, factories, food plants, farms, churches, schools, charities that feed or clothe people, and small businesses.

    Did you miss the part about “too drunk to drive“? The anti-drunk-driving campaign is now decades old, and officer discretion has been reduced in many different areas. A Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) over 0.08 is now evidence of Driving Under the Influence, requiring arrest of the driver and impoundment of the car. It is standard procedure in many places to handcuff arrested persons for their own safety and officer safety.

    These and other laws were enacted at the impassioned urgings of liberals just like you. Now you don’t like them, you’d rather let drunks just go driving home? Suppose the police let him go and in his intoxicated condition he ran into someone else and killed them, wouldn’t the police be partly liable for that death? Do you see where your emotions lead you?

    This is a great business idea. Make a company which syphons money from guilty whites to ghetto blacks on a monthly basis. Take a 10% cut. Make sure the company has one of those academic blacks with bottle-glasses fronting it.

    Slowly expand the recipient areas one block at a time, and invest the profit in chicken shops, sneaker stores, flat screen tv outlets etc in the same areas. This will mean 50% of the goodwhite money will come your way. When it all becomes too much to handle, take out very good fire insurance on these shops. Suddenly stop the flow of money. The shops will burn down. Collect insurance. Retire.

Their presidential candidate is so pathetic and their identity politics so transparent that nobody wants to openly embrace him or say what they are really for. In the East Bay, I have seen exactly ONE Biden for Pres bumper sticker. Compare that to the Warren or Sanders stickers that you will see fairly often or Obama stickers which were and still are ubiquitous. It is much easier to claim that people are fighting against racism than supporting a tired old hack like Biden. Nobody is supporting Bidenism.

    Hiding behind George Floyd gives suburban Democrats just enough cover to be able to show their faces in public, even in a deep blue part of the country like where I live. I think that once Trump starts campaigning in Ernest this will become obvious to all and there will be no need to pretend.

    Also, many of the <25 crowd is being pushed out there by their parents and other adults like teachers who are using them as shock troops and holding them out front like a shield. They are too old and nobody will believe that they really think that the non-suburban population is really saintly or victimized. They have failed and they are being eclipsed now by brown people but they have one last card to play through their ne'er well do children.

    He was asleep in the car. The car was stopped and not on a public highway. He was out of the car and talking to the police. Was his death completely inevitable?

    Obviously I appreciate that he should not have resisted being handcuffed or grabbed the officer’s taser, but then again his judgement was severely alcohol impaired. But even if a drunk man resists being handcuffed and grabs the cop’s taser, handily located within his reach, does that justify on-the-spot execution? Many people would say yes, and many would say no.

    No doubt a lot more information will soon come out about his criminal history, alcoholism, drug history, and so on and perspectives may change.

    OK, time for a snapshot of the current strategic situation in the USA:

    The recent riots/insurrection has answered a few questions.

    The Liberals have destroyed US universities; it is estimate that about half will close next year, as COVID-19 depleted their endowments (working capital) to below that necessary to continue. The current mood seems to be that the education offered is not worth the student debt incurred. This is surprisingly true for STEM graduates; the large debt precludes investment in / acquisition of a house, which means that the entire family must live in an apartment complex, most of which are bad influences on children. Thus, large debt hurts peoples own children.
    In exchange for this destruction, the Liberals have a large cohort of people trained as SJW (and only as SJW — it’s all they can do commercially except unskilled labor such as baristas and similar retail positions). Trained SJW make their living as political professionals (“activists”), and they staff Antifa and the logistics / scouting / Black mob leadership / light assault force of the recent riots.

    These riots were supposed to lead the SJW trained to remunerative and interesting positions in the resulting revolutionary regime (now called “liberated zones”); quite a few of the proto-SJW achieved at least celebrity in the analogous 1960s riots.
    But that did not happen this time (2020). Instead, the Blacks in the Liberated Zones have rejected White leadership, apparently preferring to be governed by gangs of their own race. This makes scaling the LZ up to entire cities ruled by revolutionary SJW is impossible, even in cities which already have a non-revolutionary SJW dominated government. It also severely diminishes the future prospects of the SJW trained. Even those SJW trained now in various government bureaucracies face a future of reductions in force (RIF) due to failure of the existing urban model and coupled failure of establishing an SJW revolution capable of extracting more resources from non-urban territory.

    Furthermore, the military semi-revolt from the Secretary of Defense, Matis, some retired senior officers, and the 10^3 military students has been answered by a reminder that military officers who in public oppose the President’s decisions can be recalled and court-martialed. Trump has worked with hostile executives within his own company before.

    So: The riots appear to have been a failure that has expended considerable resources on the Liberal side. The attack that Steve Sailor records in (https://www.unz.com/isteve/gone-with-the-wendys/#respond) is more significant than it appears to be. The crowd was supposed to be cheering for the news crew, who were supposed to be their liberators, and the liberators would then lead the crowd to yet more revolutionary acts. Didn’t happen.

    This is an important setback for the Liberals, and is vaguely reminiscent of the British-Afghan War (https://www.thoughtco.com/britains-disastrous-retreat-from-kabul-1773762) and the Revolutions of 1848 in which methods that had succeeded in the French Revolution failed because they were not a surprise.

    Note that I am _not_ saying that all the fuss is over. It isn’t. There are still major conflicts of interest between various ethnic groups in the US, and the fuss will continue until these conflicts are resolved.
    I _am_ saying that the Liberals’ Early Summer Offensive achieved early successes but could not be exploited to gain more successes, and that the inability to exploit revealed the ineffectiveness of at least two Liberal capital assets (SJW as leaders of a revolutionary mass, and Universities as a recruitment / funding sources).

    Rather shocking for a liberal to be so blase’ about turning a drunk loose with car keys.

    Most of you “Anons” are incapable of reading properly. I guess you don’t post under your own names, because you would forget your own name.

    No where in any of the (3) posts I made above was there any suggestion that the deceased should have been turned loose with car keys. On the contrary, the quotes I included a number of alternative courses of action, none of which included turning him loose with car keys, which, as even an Anon can figure out, would be a stupid thing to do, even for an Anon.

    Incidentally, from what I can see in the video, the police did not tell Brooks that he was under arrest, or for what offense, or recite his Miranda rights. He said ” I think you’ve had too much to drink to be driving… put your hands behind your back for me” and then walked behind him and attempted to put handcuffs on him, which Brooks resisted as one might if a metal handcuff suddenly bit into the flesh of your wrist.

    (It goes without saying that no one in their right mind would try to physically resist two armed police officers, nevertheless such things are not uncommon, especially when people are drunk or sometimes under the influence of hallucinatory drugs.)

    Could they just have taken him home? Could they have called for a sober family member to come and walk him home? How much of a danger was he to the public? Was he committing other offenses, such as driving while disqualified?

    They could let him go, but that would be letting him get away with drunk driving. I prefer cops to keep arrest drunk drivers so they don’t hurt anyone else on the road. He wasn’t a little tipsy either, he was so blotto he fell asleep in the drive through.

    He was probably on parole or probation as well, having recently gotten out of his second stretch in prison. If he’s out driving drunk in violation of his parole, I expect the cops to arrest his and report him.

    What did the cops do about moving the car that was blocking the Wendy’s drive-in window? That was the reason they were called.

    From what we know it seems like he woke up after the cops had been called and pulled into a parking spot.

Whether he resisted, fought back and fled due to being intoxicated, or a more general black predisposition to fighting the police has yet to be determined.

    This one really depresses me. That poor guy. The image of him standing to attention when the officer tells him to put his arms by his sides is burned in my mind forever. Hell, he was doing everything he could to comply–except that every word out of his mouth was a lie. But what the hell?!

    I had no sympathy for Floyd. He was a lowlife who resisted right from the get go. But this guy is doing pretty well for being drunk. Why the hell did he resist? Don’t black guys know that that’s a losing strategy? If they arrested him he would lose his license and then commuting to work would be a nightmare if not impossible, i.e. he’d lose his job. Maybe that’s what was going through his mind.

    I gotta say, it looked as though the cop doing the drunk-follow-my-moving-finger routine carried on for a little too long. And the heel to toe walk? I can’t even do that now, stone sober, not to mention not being able to count one thousand one, one thousand two etc. as I do it. Okay, so the tests show the guy’s impaired. Do they have to handcuff him? Jeez.

    This sucks. The police lost me on this one. I thought the guy yelling afterwards had it about right. Whatever happened to a little tolerance for human foibles? Okay, zero tolerance for drunk drivers, MADD and all that. But if this is what absolutist solutions like zero tolerance lead to, then count me a moderate.

  171. @Jenner Ickham Errican

    The police were called because the car was stopped, not because of driving. He was not driving on a public road during the course of the interaction. (Actually he stated that someone had dropped him off at the Wendy’s where his rental car was parked and then driven off. He had then entered the food service line in his rental car, as he was hungry, which admittedly seems unlikely.)

    When the police tried to arrest him, they did not state that they were arresting him for drunken driving. In fact they had stated earlier in the conversation that they were concerned about his safety.

    What happened when Brooks got out of the car?

    Rolfe asks Brooks to step out of his car (8:50) and asks if he has any weapons on him. Brooks says no and then agrees to a pat-down search. Rolfe doesn’t find any weapons, but notes there is a bulge in Brooks’ pocket – which Brooks says is a wad of cash.
    Brooks is asked to undergo a sobriety test (10:00). He then performs a number of exercises administered by Rolfe. Upon further questioning, Brooks admits (24:50) that he has had too much to drink but insists that he can still “focus.” He consents to a breathalyzer test.
    When did Brooks start to resist?

    After administering the test (29:25), Rolfe tells Brooks that he thinks he’s had too many drinks to be driving, and asks him to put his hands behind his back. As Rolfe puts on the handcuffs, Brooks begins to struggle. The bodycam appears to fall off Rolfe (29:30). One officer can be heard shouting, “stop fighting!” while another screams “you’re going to get tased! You’re going to get tased!” Moments later, one officer shouts, “Hands off the f**king taser.” Scuffling can be heard, presumably as the officers wrestle with Brooks off camera.

    With the bodycam still lying on the ground, one officer is heard yelling (30:00), “stop fighting!” Brooks is then briefly seen being tased. Bronsan appears on camera for a moment as he runs towards the fleeing suspect. Seconds later, three gunshots ring out.

    https://www.rt.com/usa/491770-brooks-videos-shooting-police-atlanta/

    There is a video of the whole thing including all the discussions with the police officers, sobriety tests, etc. prior to the breathalyzer test. Warning, this video is almost 90 minutes long, but the relevant action is in the first 30 minutes.

    Do we know more about how the fire was set?

    It seems to me this would require a major effort, planned in advance to bring sufficient gasoline or whatever accelerant was used. Presumably the restaurant had some sort of sprinkler system or something that had to be turned off or overwhelmed (or maybe not – I don’t actually know what’s required by the local fire codes, but am hypothesising).

    It presumably would take a while to get the major fire going, all in front of a large group of “protesters” busily filming everything on their cell phones: there should be lots of evidence of this extremely dangerous crime.

    Reuters reports there was a gas station next door. The pictures I’ve seen showed a major conflagration: it’s not difficult to see how things could have gotten much worse with many casualties.

    Incidentally, from what I can see in the video, the police did not tell Brooks that he was under arrest, or for what offense, or recite his Miranda rights.

    Unfortunately, reading rights can be a cue that it’s time to run. In this case, the guy ran anyway, but they had a better jump on him than if he had been read rights. But running is only one of the impulsive behaviors that an anxious suspect can opt for. Grabbing an officer’s weapon or pulling his own is a possibility, so handcuffing as soon as possible after the decision to arrest has been made probably saves lives.

    What do the rights that are being read actually say?

    -You have the right to remain silent
    -You have the right to an attorney.
    -You will have an attorney appointed if you can afford one.

    Nothing contingent on not being handcuffed or not being taken into custody. There are many people – armed suspects or violent suspects – who are cuffed before rights are read, so it’s not like there’s no legal precedent.

    I haven’t litigated this in Georgia but I have in three other states. Most states use the same model for their statutes.

    Summary: Parking lots open to the public are “public roads or trafficways” for purposes of policing. Operating (not driving) a motor vehicle usually hinges on where you are sitting, is the motor running (if not where are the keys, in the ignition or in your pocket), are the lights on, is the vehicle properly parked. It’s been awhile so I’m not sure what the state of law is in this era of fobs and “self driving” vehicles.

    He was the person blocking the Wendy’s driveway and later moved his vehicle. Cops determined probable cause existed for the charge of Driving Under the Influence. (Contrary to popular belief, you do not actually have to be caught driving the vehicle to be charged with this offense. If evidence is available to prove you were driving the vehicle (witnesses, motor vehicle wreck, video evidence, etc) that could be sufficient PC to conduct field sobriety tests and arrest for DWI.

    This wasn’t a case of “public intoxication” but the crime of driving while impaired. Since body cameras are now widespread Officers have pretty much zero discretion for misdemeanors as serious as this and they would be raked over the coals and possibly fired if they let this guy go and he later on drove his vehicle and crashed/killed someone with it while impaired.

    Even if they just took his keys, the interaction would still be recorded and they would be on record as having let off someone. Body cameras are usually randomly selected to be watched by supervisors and such action could result in discipline. An onlooker could call in a say “I saw your officers let a drunk driver go!” which would lead to talking to a supervisor which again would lead to discipline.

    Some misd have become much more prosecuted over the years (like DWI,) plus increasingly strict police policies plus body worn cameras have made it so Officers actual cover themselves by operating in the manner seen in the Atlanta P.D. shooting.

If they say “put your hand behind your back” first , a higher % of people, especially drunk people, will obey the command. Before they have time to think about it, they are cuffed. And THEN you say “you are under arrest for X”. In that order. If you change the order then many people will argue with the arrest and will not voluntarily put their hands behind their back.

    Do we know more about how the fire was set?

    The building spontaneously combusted out of shame as a result of the horrible racist act that had occurred on its premises.

    It seems to me this would require a major effort, planned in advance to bring sufficient gasoline or whatever accelerant was used.

    Or you could just bring a can of gas and some matches. If you already had a can of gas in your garage (your dad’s lawnmower – you never mow the lawn despite living at home for free and being unemployed) it would require maybe 30 seconds of “planning” on your way out. Or maybe you are antifa and keep some Molotov cocktails ready for just such occasions. You never know when a Peaceful Protest ® might erupt.

    The Tuskeegee Airmen were a highly selected group of Talented Tenth blacks, the absolute cream of the crop, so it is not surprising that they performed as well as average white pilots. There are enough high IQ blacks (often racially admixed so that they are really more white than black) to make up 1 or 2% of any elite institution in America. The problem is that blacks demand to be proportionately represented or even more in every setting and there are many settings where it is is impossible to find that many qualified blacks so instead we get mostly incompetents.

    How about 10k and a carton of Newports if they repatriate?

    I was just thinking today that the amount of money lost/wasted in the riots might be about the same amount we would have paid to repatriate angry urban negroes back to their country of origin, assuming we delivered 50K apiece to all departing negroes.

    Imagine if we just enabled the negroes with no jobs or high school education, as well as all negroes below the age of 45 to depart to Nigeria for good, how great the day-to-day lifestyle would be. Yeah, the far left would moan about it for a short time, until they begrudgingly realized they no longer needed bars on the windows of their homes, their local schools were safe, and they could walk safely in a local park at night. Imagine Chicago with few or no black people.

    In any case, since such an honest policy for the good of mankind is off the table, the wuhan virus will likely be working on our behalf, repatriating surly negroes… with God.

    Maybe “social darwinism” is a real thing. We just have to leave it alone, and let it do what it does best.

    I agree that what we have is a resisting arrest problem, not a police shooting problem. Ten million arrests per year, about 400 deaths, or 0.004 percent. I’m guessing most of these cases were in shootouts with police.

    In most states, resisting arrest is itself a criminal act, with penalties.

    However, centuries ago, when pressgangs roamed the pubs, and English officials illegally seized men to serve in the King’s army, English common law recognized the right of an individual to resist with reasonable force an attempt of a police officer to make an unlawful arrest.

    Also, I found out that there was a 1900 Supreme Court case in which a native American guy was arrested under doubtful circumstances and he resisted. In Bad Elk v. United States, the Court held that an individual had the right to use force to resist an unlawful arrest.

    This ruling is no longer used in case law, and most states have specific statutes recognizing that it does not apply.

    Today, in 2020 in the United States, with a police bad arrest outcome rate of 0.004 percent, I don’t think there is any justification to defund the police. Don’t resist arrest and be polite to the police. That’s what I told my kid when he was learning to drive.

    but it cannot automatically be assumed that every drunk or every person knows this

    Irrelevant. A (drunk) person who is conversationally conscious is only required to obey legitimate authority, in this case the police. There’s nothing in the law that requires arresting officers to narrate arrest procedure beyond giving commands.

    At 29:30 in your cited video, Brooks feigned compliance, then ran, and was finally taken into custody after a chase, violent struggle, theft of weapon, another chase, and aiming of said weapon. Textbook slambo blambo. He held his liquor, but the bullet was quicker. Comply or die, ain’t no chicken pot pie. The latter should be a homey craft sign maxim mounted in all Negro dwellings.

    I, for one, have never been arrested and would not be familiar with the process or the jargon.

    Then why are you commenting on the matter as if you know what the procedures and charges are? Why do you cite/use ‘jargon’ like “public intoxication” and “execution” if you don’t even know what the terms mean?

    that may be so, but i think this is a huge source of things going bad when they do go bad.

    There should be a Supreme Court interpretation (of illegal search and seizure or whatever else) that police can’t physically touch you until 30 seconds after they’ve told you clearly that you’re under arrest.

    And during that time cops should only be able to just repeat the phrase.

    i know it sounds comical, but otherwise if they put hands on someone and a fight happens it’s on them.

    And just saying “you’re under arrest” AFTER you’ve attacked someone by touching them, is bs.

    You could say that the battering he (Rodney King) received at the hands of LAPD officers while CHP officers looked on is what Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) had been insisting upon in their demand to take DUI seriously as a major crime?

    Maybe, but it does seem that laws against drunken driving are problematic in many jurisdictions because of the difficulty of making the punishment fit the crime.

    There are several different groups of drunken drivers:

    1) Chronic alcoholics and who may have illegal blood levels even when relatively sober. They will often get disqualified from driving, then continue to drive through multiple convictions because there is no alternative.

    2) Young drinkers who are immature and often showing off for their friends. They are probably the most deadly and when they get into accidents a whole carful may be killed. Several people I grew up with didn’t make it past their 25th birthday. This group may also include young delinquent polysubstance abusers.

    3) Seasonal drinkers who have had “one-too-many” at the annual Christmas party. They need to have designated drivers.

    4) Tourists who are partying too much and returning to their hotels.

    Advertising campaigns and educational efforts may have deterrent effect for groups 2) and 3), but not much effect on group 1).

    The states vary wildly in the penalties for DUI. Arizona is considered the toughest and Wisconsin the most lax. In some states you can get a DUI for riding a bicycle while drunk, in others not.

    No state has DUI laws anywhere near as tough as Sweden where no level of alcohol is tolerated for driving and fines are based on how much money you have in the bank. In Sweden only 3% of motoring fatalities are linked to alcohol as opposed to 30% in the US.

    Iran has no DUI laws at all, but before you plan to move there, note that drinking alcohol is completely banned. For Muslims the penalty is 80 lashes, but Christian residents are exempt from the flogging.

    Here in Florida all gas stations seem to sell refrigerated alcoholic drinks, which is strange since gas stations are often frequented by motorists.

    The field sobriety test is generally bs. they’ll always give you the breathylizer anyway. The only do the trst because they have to waste 15 minutes before they give you the breathylizer because otherwise you can claim that it read abnormally high because you had alcohol in your mouth, but it wasn’t in your blood.

    I found this out after reading up on things after:
    about 10 years ago i got stopped at a dui checkpoint on 4th of July about 9 or 10 pm.
    Cop asked me of I’d drank anything “today”.
    Told him I’d had two beers in the afternoon.

    Well. he had me do the sobriety thing. (stand on one leg, walk the line, touch your nose, follow my finger, alphabet backwards). Great.

    Then: breathylizer. Result? 0.00% of course because i have a working liver and it had been like 6 hours since i drank.

    The guy had no basis to detain me to begin with, and obv his tests didn’t indicate that i was intoxicated.

    And i was perfectly polite during the whole thing with nary an eye roll, so they weren’t doing it to “teach me a lesson”. They were just incompetent and inconsiderate of my time, my rights or the money they were wasting.

I had an uncle myself who was in the Army Air Corps in WWII. He met my aunt, who was a WAC, while in. After the war, when the Air Force became a separate branch, he went with them, and did 30 years.

    My point in my post was that there were very few Tuskegee Airmen, in total, and fewer than 20% of those ever saw combat. That’s not taking anything away from those who served stateside. I also mentioned that the minimum age for these people, in 2020, would be in the mid 90s, yet remarkably there seems to be a “Tuskegee Airman” bloviating every time you turn around.

    The author of the Flashman novels, George MacDonald Fraser, has a great collection of short stories – “The General Danced At Dawn – based on the period he spent as a junior officer in a British Army Highland Regiment in Libya just after the end of WWII. One of the best stories deals with the relationship between a giant headcase whose wartime experience leads to his being granted much more leeway in disciplinary matters and the commanding colonel.

    The headcase is apt to take drink and then cause mayhem. The only person who can cope, fight, subdue and bring him to the cells is a guy almost as big who is honest enough to acknowledge that he couldn’t handle the nutcase if the offender was sober. But sober the headcase wouldn’t cause mayhem.

    This isn’t about ‘reparations,’ or ‘fairness’ or ‘equality.’ BLM and all the rest of it is a shake-down racket. The people running the shake-down do not see whites’ attempts to placate them, be agreeable, ‘make amends,’ as anything but weakness. All they know is that when they misbehave, they are truckled to. The more outrageous the misbehavior, the greater the rewards. This has been going on since the 1960’s. The tantrums and demands will never end until they are consistently met with swift, severe punishment.

    My friend and I were in Amsterdam in 2015 and we were joking around about how European cops were pushovers because they don’t have guns. Anyway we saw a group of three brits getting accosted by two huge, young looking Dutch police officers. One of the brits was stumbling publicly drunk and the cops were starting to make a fuss about him while the other two guys were trying to plead their case. We had a few shots of jack in us so we leapt into action. We walked over like we owned the place and told the cops that these were our friends and that our flight was leaving the next morning. He had to come with us because if he spent the night in jail he would miss his flight, so he needed to come with us now and we’d make sure he got home safe and sound. The conversation was in English and I could tell they weren’t quite proficient. At least not enough to keep me from fast talking a complete stranger out of the clutches of arrest. The huge young Dutchman gave me a bewildered stare and said “ok,” releasing the drunk kid. The two friends got him on his feet and gave us and inquisitive look while mumbling something unintelligible. “Thanks.” And they set off into the night. I would never do that in America, the cops here have guns and they will draw them on you.

    the police did not tell Brooks that he was under arrest, or for what offense, or recite his Miranda rights.

    Miranda rights do not have to be given unless you are questioning a suspect. For some reason, they are not typically required at a traffic stop. That is why cops ask you “Do you know why you were stopped?” So that you will 1) Incriminate yourself or 2) Confess to some other violation other than the one the cop has in mind. Your answer should be “I don’t know, I was following all traffic laws.

    Never bargain yourself into a conviction. Cop-“I clocked you at 85 in a 65 zone” Dummy-“No, I had my cruise control set at 75.” Which is still above the speed limit and you just confessed on tape.

    It depends on state law when a person is actually under arrest. I don’t know Georgia law, but under Kentucky law 3 things have to take place before a person is considered under arrest. 1) They must be under the physical control of the arresting officer either by consent or force. 2) You must be told you are under arrest. 3) You must be told why you are being arrested. They do not have to read your rights unless they want to question you about anything other than name, address, and birthday.

    Also know, that under current Supreme Court ruling, once your rights have been read, you must affirmatively claim your right to remain silent. “I am choosing to remain silent under the 5th Amendment” or your silence can be used against you.
    (none of the above is legal advice. Do your own research)

  275. @PaceLaw

    Well at what level is it overblown and overdone?

    Because current drunk driving laws make it impossible to know if you are breaking them. The number is arbitrary and the amount of alcohol to reach that number is different for different people.

    If you are going to arrest people for drunk driving you need to require the police to prove impairment or use a zero tolerance approach where any alcohol within the past two hours is considered impaired. Otherwise, quit arresting people for harm they might cause.

    There have been a few cases where drunk driving cases were thrown out because the companies that make the breathalyzer machines have refused to turn over computer source that determine the BAC.

    Now we lose our 4th Amendment rights at checkpoints, even though studies have shown that roving patrols catch more drunks than the checkpoints. But the checkpoints get the cops paperwork and equipment violations plus the badge thug gets to shine a flashlight around in your car.

    This sucks. The police lost me on this one. I thought the guy yelling afterwards had it about right. Whatever happened to a little tolerance for human foibles? Okay, zero tolerance for drunk drivers, MADD and all that. But if this is what absolutist solutions like zero tolerance lead to, then count me a moderate.

    The police did everything correctly and acted reasonably. If anyone acted unreasonably, it was Wendy’s for calling the police in the first place. They could have sent an employee out to knock on the guy’s window until he woke up and have him pull into a parking space. Why didn’t they? Probably because they racially profiled him and decided it was too dangerous.

    As soon as the police are there, they can’t ignore the DUI offense. Obviously the suspect, and the guy yelling afterwards about it, think that black people should get a veto that overrides the police decision to make an arrest. Right now there is no veto, but if some lunatics want to pass a law giving some people veto power over police arrests…let them try.

    Or defund the police and let Wendy’s handle the situation…in hindsight the Wendy’s manager would take a do over and probably just close up early that night so he could have a place to come to work the next day.

    For the last several years, the number of cop caused deaths each year has been over 1000, usually hovering right at 1100. The vast majority are caused by police shooting. Shooting accounting for over 1000 deaths each year for the past six years. Tasers come in second usually around 35 per year, with a high of 55 in 2015 and a low of 25 last year. Surprisingly, being beaten or restrained by cops typically only causes 10 deaths a year, the past six years have had numbers of these deaths at 15,9,11,10,9,11.

    I would say that the turning point in the physical wimpification of police officers actually began with the FBI. Following the poor performance of the 9mm pistol round in the 1986 Miami Shootout the FBI soon decided to use the hitherto-uncommon 10mm as its new service round. In testing, however, too many FBI agents – whom one would think are overwhelmingly fit, strong, hardbodies – couldn’t manage the 10’s recoil. As a result the FBI adopted a watered-down 10mm round, today commonly called the .40S&W.

    Last week’s Atlanta black cop tasering of a black student that got five officers suspended.

    But the policemen in that case were not charged with attempted murder or even assault for the unjustified taser use. Law enforcement themselves have never said being tased is anything approaching lethal. They always insist it is basically harmless, and on occasion cops are willing to be tased themselves for a demonstration.

    Rolfe chased and tried to tase Brooks, who doubtless alerted by the tase-ing noise, tried a Parthian tas-ing of the pursuing Rolfe, whereupon Rolfe drew his gun and shot Brooks in the back, killing him. Because Rolfe at first tried to tase, he was aware what Brooks had in his hand was not a firearm. Given current circumstances being a cop is not a licence to decide for oneself when use of lethal force is justified. If someone is running away, and you shoot them in the back for pointing what you certainly know is nothing more than a taser at you, then expect to find yourself in the dock. Do you know what happens to cops in prison? Officer Rolfe is about to find out.

    That’s not the whole story. They found that 40 got pretty close to 45 sized wounds and could fit into a handgun designed for 9mm. The other problem is that 10mm is pretty snappy in a compact.

    Anyways the 40 wasn’t watered down enough because they went back to 9mm.

    Georgia statute says “A person shall not drive or bin in actual physical control of any moving vehicle” when under the influence. So the question is whether you are in “actual physical control”.

    Whether or not someone is in physical control can be based upon circumstantial evidence, e.g.

    Warm tires, which suggest the car was driven recently.
    Warm hood of the car, which also suggests the car was driven recently.
    Keys in the ignition.
    Car parked in the middle of a road.
    Car parked on the side of a road, but not parked in what would commonly be regarded as a parking spot.
    Physical damage to the vehicle, near where an accident has obviously occurred.
    A single person in the car parked in what is obviously not a designated parking space, with no other plausible driver on the scene.

    In this case, the popo arrested him while he was asleep (in the drive thru lane of a Wendy’s) and not actually driving but circumstantially it is obvious that he drove himself to that spot (while under the influnce). Whether you are parked on private property is not as important as how you GOT there.

    You seriously are asking these questions after the last few months?

    You, a pro-man class lawyah are not in a profession with a future in a society with the possibility of a sustainable future.

    [MORE]

    America’s future is not the latter half of the 20th century with brown and black people and a diverse food court. Blacks will turn the cities into Detroit. Except Detroit has mostly-white Michigan to provide welfare and adult supervision. How well do imagine the cities will function without police? We don’t have a white population that’s nine times the size of the non-whites. We’re less than half of upcoming generation. The numbers are even worse when you consider that some births to white women are half non-white. The mixed raced folks are not on our side, and they will be even less on your side as whites decline in number and political clout.

    Take your avocation, the law. Do lawyers depend on the courts and a functional judicial system? Most of the time, people obey the law because they do it unthiningly, it’s just ingrained in the civilized. But when obeying the law is not in their interests? I’m guessing that the men with guns and clubs who can have them locked in cages for the rest of their lives and force them to pay huge amounts in fines, etc.

    Maybe you work in contract law? Well, if the police go away, companies will keep to their contracts when all is going well, but when it doesn’t? I’m guessing the men with guns and clubs who can have them locked in cages for the rest of their lives has something to do with people living up to their contracts,

    I guess companies can hire private security (mercenaries) to enforce their will. But what do they need fancy-ass lawyers for when they’re just going to use hired goons to get what they want.

    The police aren’t the only the diversities and the woke want to eliminate. They want to eliminate prisons. This country keeps maybe 2.5 to 3 million people locked in cages. They aren’t nice people, and are in prison for reasons. When these people are freed, they need to fed, educated, and occupied. That costs money.

    One reason black crime is so ‘low’ is that white peop,e fled cities to escape the savage blacks. That included a lot of the pro-man class. They will pass laws mandating blacks in every neighborhood, on every block, to remedy past segregation.

    Your taxes will go up, We don’t produce enough wealth to pay for all the government people want as it is. The woke and diversities will demand a lot more, and we don’t have a wealthy, white, industrialized country to pay for it, The federal government will run out of cash quickly if interest rates go up slightly. The Republican plan of ‘starving the beast’ of the federal government by cutting taxes, outsourcing whatever could be ousourced, and importing net tax-consuming aliens and paying for it with debt will come pay dividends. I see to A couple of possibilities, taxes or debt repudiation.

    Let’s take the first one. The cities die as police forces disappear. The big cities and states that depend on them to pay their massive pension liabilities go bankrupt, and can’t pay their pension or debt service. What does the Democratic President (and demographics ensureDemocrats after Trump) do? He federalizes Illinois’ debts. On top of the billions in social spending the woke will demand. So taxes go up. Capital gains will be taxed as ordinary income. Tax sovereignty will be enforced, so no hiding money in overseas bank accounts unless you are very rich. The typical lawbot does not qualify.

    As an alternative to raising taxes, the government could repudiate it’s debt. It is sovereign, after all, But why will China keep sending us consumer goods in exchange for rapidly-declining dollars. Once Chinese millionaires are convinced China is the future, the US stock narket will drop like a Drake album, the luxury housing market in cities will die (just from depolicing).

    That’s a best case scenario that assumes the federal government even functions. The military will be either cut drastically or turned into a jobs program. It won’t be able to fight wars. So America’s standing in the world will decline drastically. Probably the dollar will no longer be the reserve currency.

    More on the economy. The STEM workforce is whites, Jews, and Asians. The population of the country might be 500 million, but the first world population will be smaller than it was in 1960. Maybe the automated factories will relocate here, but with America’s rapidly changing population and government, I wouldn’t build my factory here, would you?

    Sure, the pro-mans are able to buy stuff now, but that’s just part of the great American bust out. Once the bust out is complete, the stores shelves will be bare (like April, but all the time), the cities will be uninhabitable, crime will be at Brazilian levels.

    The only long-term game plan for the white pro-mans is alliance with the white working class to keep America as American as possible, because the woke and diverse are just beginning to flex their muscles.

    Ten bucks? That really is pretty insulting. You can’t buy someone for ten bucks.

    Dear God, if people must virtue-signal and make empty meaningless gestures they could do better than that. $10 really sounds like an insult.

    There are number of reasons. I’d say the main reason is the criminally irresponsible lie that Progressives relentlessly instill in young black minds–that white people are obsessed wth keeping the black man down, and that this fictional tyranny must be resisted, by any means necessary.

    Another reason is the settlement culture; at some point city governments apparently came to the conclusion that reflexively settling whenever a black person made a police-brutality accusation was the most cost-effective policy. Word got around in the hoods that getting in a fight with a cop was a good way of winning the lottery, or the little-lotto at the very least. Another example of how the bean counters are actually fiscal cancer.

    Might there be an element of subconscious suicide-by-cop in this event? He gets into a wrestling match/fist fight with two heavily armed cops, steals a taser from one of them, runs away (not even trying to dodge bullets) and shoots the taser back at one of them. This is beyond stupid and more like suicidal. Now he is posthumously famous. An element of suicide-by-cop?

    We could see more of this type of event since the mainstream media ensures that any similar action results in global fame and a gold casket for the victim/perpetrator if black. Cops better watch out, since they get fired and prosecuted for unwillingly participating.

  318. The sage words of Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever (at approx 3:58) “There are ways of killing yourself without killing yourself.” In particular, suicide-by-cop.

    Given current circumstances being a cop is not a licence to decide for oneself when use of lethal force is justified. If someone is running away, and you shoot them in the back for pointing what you certainly know is nothing more than a taser at you

    If I was being violently attacked by a person who then attempted to incapacitate me using a stun weapon, I wouldn’t give him a second chance. I don’t think that it is reasonable to ask a police officer to give them a second chance either.

    This shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how policing works. They are allowed to detain you without placing you under arrest. And everyone detained prays they don’t get placed under arrest.

    I am aware.
    Detained similarly is not a physical interaction. It just means you can’t leave while they conduct an investigation.

    They CAN cuff you during a detainment but if they want to do so they should follow the same announcement rule i proposed, not just touch people out of the blue.

    And no making you sit on a curb or on the ground etc.

    All the stuff that they do supposedly “for their safety” but that is also demeaning and would not be be done between normal non-cop strangers they shouldn’t do.

    If they then choose to arrest someone, that’s fine. Do it with words. Even handcuffing people after arrest shouldn’t be done as a matter of course. If there’s an explicit identified threat, ok. Otherwise hands off.

    Basically they should (imo) only be allowed to use any force or restraint
    a) in self defense
    b) to effect an arrest when someone is resisting.

    Maybe we should encourage the madness to go on until all the universities shut down.

    Might be the only way to reform them — shut them down, fire everybody, wait a decade, start them up again.

    Hard to say where R&D would continue during those years, but it would probably continue. Hard to say where education for science and engineering would continue, but it could survive for a time as an apprenticeship program — and the overproduction of elites has produced a generation of young people who know the basics. These people could teach the basics after a few decades gap, even in underemployed.

    The above is my attempt to be optimistic with some degree of realism.

    It should also be borne in mind that the University is a Western institution (as opposed to Islamic and Judaic institutions that attempt to learn from their sacred literature). The University is (IMHO) essential to the West. If Universities are shut down, they will have to be re-started at some point.

    Why re-started? James Blish talked about the next post-Western civilization as being (paraphrase) “moss, content to live at the base of the sunbeams that the redwoods of the West had sought to ascend”. (Pretty good for a pulp fiction writer, no?) If the next civilization (or the West’s recovery) doesn’t have universities, it won’t seek to ascend the sunbeams. While climbing up sunbeams may seem quixotic, it’s responsible for the Industrial Revolution and made possible the minds of most people reading this. No Universities, and you get the same gradual decline into the Malthusian trap in which non-Western societies found themselves by c.a. 1500.

    Taking out the Universities did more damage than one might think.

    About half your “will happen” _have_ happened, or are half way through. Your not just blowing smoke. Your predictions concerning what happens to the professional class are also spot on (IMHO), matching Turchin’s “overoproduction of the elites”

    One difference: who the sides are. C. Caldwell (NYT writer), in _The Entitlement Society_, marks the division as those who have gained from the Civil Rights laws and the rest of the US. If you change that slightly to “ethnic groups whose land and labor is being transferred to other ethnic groups on the basis of ethnicity”, you can expand the applicability of your analysis to Europe and the UK. If you expand the definition a bit more, to “inhabitants of the cities’ hinterlands whose assets are being transferred to urban areas” (Copley, _Uncivilization_), the analysis becomes almost world wide, including for example China, Afghanistan, and most of both N. and S. Africa).

    But even if a drunk man resists being handcuffed and grabs the cop’s taser, handily located within his reach, does that justify on-the-spot execution?

    Isn’t on-the-spot execution exactly what the “drunk man” in this case had in mind? After all, you don’t grapple for a weapon you don’t intend to use, do you?

    What else would a suspect fighting for a police officer’s weapon mean but, “I’m trying to kill this man”?

    I would think that, from a purely practical point of view, grappling for a police officer’s weapon should result in that police officer doing whatever he feels is necessary to overcome that direct threat to his life. If that includes killing the suspect, so be it.

    I hope I am misreading you badly, and that you are not advocating that suspects should be allowed to fight police for their weapons and then have a jury guess at “what they meant to do” after the fact.

    That would be completely gaga. When you’re in a life-or-death struggle you cannot afford to play games guessing what the other guy means to do or you will wind up dead.

    But Rolfe did “give him a second chance” because the first attempt to tase Rolfe was when they were face to face and close up; Brooks turned and ran then Rolfe ran after Brooks and shot him in the back for another tasing attempt. Rolfe is going to have a terrible problem explaining why the second occasion was substantially different to the first.

    The reason it was is perfectly obvious: when Brooks was running away, Rolfe was less scared to kill him because it was far less risky for Rolfe. If tested by cross-examination under oath, Rolfe’s excuse not going to stand up.

A challenge to TR’s sacking the commanders of the unit went to the Supreme Court, which rule he could directly fire any officer for any reason.

    A year after their arrival, a local newspaper ran an option piece saying that locals had feared that crime would brought to their neighborhoods by the influx of negros, but it turned out that they almost exclusively rape and kill each other, so it hasn’t been much of a problem.

    A bust out is when organized crime takes over a business with strong financials, and then takes on debt to buy as much stuff as they can to resell at a loss. The mob has no intention of paying off the debt (and may burn down the business for insurance money), so the goods sold are pure profit.

    A national example would be when a formerly white nation takes on as much debt as possible, knowing that the non-white next generation can’t pay back the debt. Though that’s not really fair. It is white people and (((white people))) doing the bust out and taking profits, some of which they are moving to Asia. I guess I hope they are, for their sakes, it would be a shame to bust out a nation and not even come out with a lot of money because you drank the diversity Kool Aid.
