Here’s a graph showing cumulative gun homicide deaths from the Gun Violence Archive created for The Trace for 2020 vs. 2016-19. As you can see, 2020 murders were running along the high side of 2016-2019 deaths until late May. But after George Floyd’s death on Memorial Day, 2020’s murders radically diverge from the baseline rate.

The excess murders in 2020 from Memorial Day 2020 onward are comparable to all the lynchings in American history.

That’s a lot of murder.

    SWEDEN LAMENTS! VULNERABLE AREAS DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED!

    Swedish capital sees 79% spike in shootings as govt laments ‘high levels’ of violence in the Scandinavian country


    Most of the violent incidents occurred in 60 suburbs across the country identified by police as “vulnerable” areas. Damberg said that while 5.4 percent of Sweden’s population live in such neighborhoods, they account for more than half of the nation’s fatal shootings.

    [Interior Minister Mikael Damberg ] expressed hope, however, that 2021 would be a “turnaround” year that would usher in a drastic improvement in safety. The government has rolled out a plan to increase the number of police recruits in the country, with the goal of having 10,000 more officers in 2024 when compared to figures from 2016.
     

    Just keep on hoping.

  3. The lockdowns are responsible for far more deaths than BLM. The lockdowns are also the main reason for the BLM rioting this summer, as the lockdowns resulted in shuttering all schools and social gatherings resulting in massive protests.

    40 million Americans lost their jobs as the lockdowns went into the third month, and schools and activities shut down with for three months that for many meant near total lockdown of their lives in New York City and elsewhere, the protests were able to gain incredible momentum, especially among young people….With millions of young people stuck at home with not much to do. It was the perfect storm for protesting and rioting. George Floyd’s death was the spark, but the lockdowns are at the foundation of today’s grievances. The lockdowns caused tens of thousands of preventable deaths, millions of people to lose their jobs. The extended lockdowns have amplified the inequities in America and the consequences will be prolonged civil unrest and increased poverty for years to come.

    True, without the lockdowns the BLM protests never would have spread to NYC , Seattle, Portland, etc... The protests went nationwide and offered the young people their only opportunity to socialize after being locked inside for months wasting hours on social media because they no longer had school or jobs to attend. The lockdowns will be shown to have caused far more deaths and destruction than the coronavirus.

    While the BLM protests certainly resulted in a few thousand extra Black killings, the lockdowns increased white deaths of despair , resulting in 10,000 more drug deaths and 10,000 more suicides along with the bankruptcy of countless Americans. The death toll of the lockdowns will have far worse consequences for America than the Black deaths caused by the BLM protests, and pandering to the BLM movement.

    Your opinion. Need supporting data. Your assertion is certainly plausible. I wouldn't at all rule out the possibility that the lockdowns were "a" causative agent but in the absence of actual documentation, I remain agnostic as to whether the lockdowns were "the" causative agent.

    {"This wouldn’t be the first time the prize went to a terrorist."}

    Quite true: in 1978 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to well know terrorist - in his earlier life - Menachim Begin (....together with Anwar Sadat).

    The Jewish terrorist group Irgun - of which Menachim Begin was a high ranking member - carried out the King David Hotel bombing in Jerusalem, killing/murdering dozens of (innocent) civilians.

    The absurdity of the Nobel so-called '"Peace" prize is too obvious.

    Replies: @Anonymous

    Good point. Menachem Begin was a notorious terrorist. As Avery pointed out, Begin ordered the terrorist bombing of the King David Hotel.

    He is also well known for his deep involvement in the 1948 ethnic cleansing of most of the indigenous people of Palestine, including directly ordering the Deir Yassin massacre:

    https://www.deiryassin.org/mas.html

    As well as being directly involved in the kidnapping, torture, and lynching of Sergeant Clifford Martin and Sergeant Mervyn Paice, of course.

    How about while he was prime minister? Surely Begin mellowed somewhat in his later years? Nope. The Sharon-supervised Sabra and Shatila massacre wasn't the only Israeli terrorist operation to occur on his watch. The IDF-run terrorist group Front for the Liberation of Lebanon from Foreigners carried out hundreds of terrorist bombings, killing untold numbers of civilians... and attempted to assassinate the [jewish] US ambassador to Lebanon, John Gunther Dean. What, he was too senile to know about all this?

    Sounds like an unrepentant semitic supremacist terrorist to me...

  7. The excess murders in 2020 from Memorial Day 2020 onward are comparable to all the lynchings in American history.

    Great point. Also, from what I recall of the history of lynchings:

    a) Black people are being killed in higher proportion in these shootings than were lynched.

    b) A greater proportion of those black people killed lately are innocent, compared to those lynched.

    (That is, unless disrespectin someone or cheating him out of a piece of fried chicken are seen as capital crimes now in the black community.)

    A greater proportion of those black people killed lately are innocent, compared to those lynched.

    This is probably true, but still, according to Cory Booker, the great majority of blacks killed are not exactly innocent. From 2011:


    "If you are shot in the city of Newark, you have over an 80 percent chance that you've been arrested before an average of 10 times," Booker said Oct. 13 on WBGO’s "Newark Today," just days after a daytime shooting spree in a public housing complex in Newark’s Central Ward. "So we know the players here. If you are getting shot or doing the shooting, overwhelmingly you've been involved in the criminal justice system and the correctional system is not correcting."

    PolitiFact New Jersey was also startled by the data. So, we researched Booker’s claim.

    Newark spokeswoman Anne Torres said Booker’s "statement should have been shot and killed, instead of shot," but beyond that he’s right.

    The idea that zillions of blacks were "lynched" by evil racists is total bullshit.

    First of all, hanging was what they did to ALL bad guys regardless of race. White criminals were lynched the same as blacks.

    The total number of blacks lynched in 200 years is probably less than the number of black on black murders in Chicago in one year.

    The lynching hysteria is simply part of the hate whitey package, the relentless effort to demonize innocent white Christian people......in order to "justify" white genocide.

    Both good points. One more point.

    I assume that the vast majority of these are black-on-black murders, so one or two years of these recent-year murders is much greater than the entire number of black lynchings from 1878 to 1968.

    We aren't talking about systemic racism here or gun violence. We are looking at total collapse in certain sectors of society, a return to barbarism.

  8. When BLM wins the Nobel Peace Prize, this narrative will be put to rest, thankfully. The contrived whataboutism from Steve has reached Soviet proportions as of late.

  9. Pre floyd 2020, gun murders in the US were already up 16% over the same period a year earlier. That would have been a historic high year-on-year increase. In the post floyd period of 2020, gun murders were up 41%, compared to the same period in 2019. I think that means that starting from the higher base, BLM drove up the murder rate by another 22% (1.41/1.16-1).

  12. This isn’t stopping in 2021, either. January 2019 gun murders were 938. January 2020’s were 1056. January 2021? 1331. And yesterday’s current total is just 27, whereas Sunday is normally good for over 100.

    Comparable indeed. From the graph, it looks like about 3,000 extra by the end of 2020. A source cited by Wikipedia claims that “nearly 3,500 African Americans and 1,300 whites were lynched in the United States between 1882 and 1968”.

  33. Not far from George Floyd Square:

    Family members identify mother and two children fatally shot in St. Paul
    A person of interest was arrested Sunday night.

    By Liz Sawyer — Minneapolis Star Tribune Feb. 1, 2021

    D’Zondria Wallace dreamed of building a new life for her family in Minnesota. She never got the chance.

    Less than six months after she had relocated to St. Paul, a gunman fatally shot Wallace and her two children inside their Payne-Phalen apartment. Police are investigating the slaying as a possible act of domestic violence and arrested a 26-year-old person of interest Sunday night.

    “I can’t stop crying. My babies are gone,” her mother, Mary Wallace, said in a phone interview from her home in Memphis before the arrest was made. “I need justice.”

    In a scene that Chief Todd Axtell described as “hellish,” first responders on Saturday found Wallace, 30, and her 14-year-old daughter, La’Porsha, dead inside the fourplex in the 700 block of Jessie Street. Her son, Ja’Corbie, 11, died a few hours later at Regions Hospital. Wallace was two months pregnant.

    An officer had been called to the home on a welfare check only an hour before the shooting. He turned away after D’Zondria answered the door and assured him that she was all right.

    The killing occurred just two blocks from the scene of a double homicide on Jan. 21 and shook a capital city already plagued by levels of gun violence not seen since the mid-90s.

    So, grandma wants "justice" for her daughter D’Zondria and her grandkids La’Porsha, and Ja’Corbie.

    But someone called the cops. And now she wants the criminal justice system to intervene?

    And this surely will result in yet another young black man getting a criminal record.

    What is it, to defund or not to defund? Perhaps we should ask Hamlet.

    Someone calling the cops on a black man is how we got George Floyd.

At one point he refers to a study of the relation between cancer and tattoos . Supposedly tattoos with a negative theme correlated with a higher rate of cancer than tattoos with a more positive theme which correlated with a lower rate of cancer than the first group and lower rates than people with no tattoos at all . I remembered it because it seemed like a strange thing to stick in the story . I looked the author up when the internet came along and there was no bio . On Amazon his only other books were erotic themed westerns , really odd . I looked up studies regarding cancer and tattoos but they all deal with cancer related to certain types of inks used .

    To a Leftist, money is this magical thing that the government just prints up to do all sorts of good things. There is no limit to the number of good things that the government can do and so no limit to the amount of money that it should spend. There is no distinction between doing work that is wealth generating (like producing energy) and work that is a sink for wealth (like mine reclamation) so it's no big deal if everyone is employed doing non-productive stuff (or just sitting home collecting their guarantied income).

The tox screen results + the full body cam footage + the fact that the tactics they were using weren’t against department policy will result in Chauvin & Co. being found not guilty. And the verdict will probably come down before the mid-term elections.

    Harry, not so long ago there was a mass shooting at Buffalo's downtown City Grille. Eight were shot, by one shooter, four died on scene and one succumbed to his injuries last year. Margaret Sullivan, former Buffalo News and NYT editor, had the temerity to point out that 7 of the victims were former felons. The black community jumped on her with both feet. The shooter was known in the hood, but it took weeks to get him in custody. After awhile this all grows wearisome, I actually think it is a badge of honor, almost like being a "Gold Star Mother" to have one of your sons offed in the hood. Stay safe.

While a few men come to enjoy killing for its own sake, it's basically true that there is an informal retribution on the antisocial in ethnically distinct city neighbourhoods. It is just that white ones no longer exist. There are juries reluctant to convict one of their own, and there can be no bystander witness interaction with law enforcement at all once the alternative informal justice system in in place. Thugs do kill each other mainly, but they also kill snitches on principle, meaning anyone that has ever snitched is fair game for all, and not just for those that they have informed on.

    While most mob bosses tried to lay low and avoid media attention, the highly charismatic Joe Columbo courted it. When federal agencies started investigating the dealings of the Mafia, the New Utrecht High School drop-out brazenly accused them of scapegoating Italian Americans and founded the Italian-American Civil Rights League, which denied the Mafia existed, and branded anyone who claimed otherwise an anti-Italian racist.

    Columbo’s movement became hugely popular, and 150,000 people flooded Manhattan’s Columbus Circle on June 29, 1970, at the League’s first public rally. Frank Sinatra was among many celebrities who appeared in a benefit for the League held at Madison Square Garden later that year.

     

    The difference with BLM is it not a movement of career criminals, and they live in a different world from gangstas so have no fear of getting shot themselves. Still, it is culpably reckless to nullify the police preventive measures against gunmen, and then ignore the resultant internecine mayhem among blacks living the gang-star dream.

    I think BLM was a kind of cultural revolution a la China rather than 1917 Russia. Mao reversed course against left deviations and worker' democracy comunes that started forming, Biden is going to find it easy to squash the aspects of BLM that are a threat to him, and more importantly government employees will cease the insubordination that was so evident under Trump. The top general argued with Trump and point blank refused to be be used against the BLM riots even though the regular army had been called out by Obama and Bush against disorder in black areas. The army and others with safe government jobs and pensions are now going to show willing. As with China, a period of disorder will be followed by a totalitarian supreme leadership dominating. Biden signed 40 executive orders. But Mao died soon after re-establishing control and bequeathed the absolute authority he had to Deng, who used it to institute policies Mao never dreamt of.

Blood is only about 6% more dense than water, maybe a little more when you're full of white cells, but let's just call that 7 lb/G.

    If you could get all the embalmers, probably by threatening a grievance with their union (didn't it used to be the Teamsters?), to hold onto all that blood rather than flushing it down the sewer lines, then you have a million and a half pounds of blood, rounding back up. Well, the problem is the head. The water headed into hydroelectric turbines is at a big elevation above the turbines, or there is no energy to extract.

    If you had a 50 ft. head, say the height of the average morgue above your hypothetical bloody power turbine, than that's 75 million ft-lb = ~ 28 kW-hr = .028 MW-hr. Even with 100% efficiency, that'll power Greater London* for about 22 milliseconds. Bloody brilliant idea, John!

I wonder what the population of Buffalo would be now if there had never been a Great Migration that cleared out all the old ethnic neighborhoods? Would the younger generation have left for the suburbs anyway?

    The excess murders in 2020 from Memorial Day 2020 onward are comparable to all the lynchings in American history.
     
    Great point. Also, from what I recall of the history of lynchings:

    a) Black people are being killed in higher proportion in these shootings than were lynched.

    b) A greater proportion of those black people killed lately are innocent, compared to those lynched.

    (That is, unless disrespectin someone or cheating him out of a piece of fried chicken are seen as capital crimes now in the black community.)

    Replies: @Almost Missouri, @Harry Baldwin, @Aardvark, @Robert Dolan, @Jim Bob Lassiter, @Wade Hampton

    The idea that zillions of blacks were “lynched” by evil racists is total bullshit.

    First of all, hanging was what they did to ALL bad guys regardless of race. White criminals were lynched the same as blacks.

    The total number of blacks lynched in 200 years is probably less than the number of black on black murders in Chicago in one year.

    The lynching hysteria is simply part of the hate whitey package, the relentless effort to demonize innocent white Christian people……in order to “justify” white genocide.

    Recently there was a case in NY where a guy was set upon by a gang of black men and stripped and beaten the moment he stepped off a long distance bus that had just arrived in NY Chinatown. At first it seemed mysterious - why had this man been so viciously attacked? But then it came out that this guy had a rap sheet a mile long and while on the bus ride from Atlanta he had robbed one of the passengers of his phone and his sneakers and everything else (as well as made the bus ride a living hell for everyone else - I don't know if you have ever been so unfortunate as to be on a bus or train with a disruptive Negro but it's amazing how much one antisocial black ruin a trip for dozens of others). At some point during the ride the victim borrowed a phone and had called his family and they were waiting to impose justice the moment the bus arrived.

    The white man's justice system no longer works in the ghetto - the clearance rate on murders in most big cities is very low. We know from history that when the official justice system doesn't work, people will create their own parallel system of informal justice - that was what lynching was all about. We also know from the history of blood feuds that there is often a cycle of violence - a Hatfield kills a McCoy so a Hatfield must be murdered in revenge and the Hatfields must then avenge his death, etc., etc. endlessly.

    In normal times the police interfere with this cycle of violence, but when they get the signal (a giant beacon that flashes the words "Black Lives Matter" into the sky) they retire to the donut shop and blacks feel empowered to pursue their natural tendencies and the US murder rate approaches that of Haiti. This is known as "keepin' it real".

    A greater proportion of those black people killed lately are innocent, compared to those lynched.

    This is probably true, but still, according to Cory Booker, the great majority of blacks killed are not exactly innocent. From 2011:


    "If you are shot in the city of Newark, you have over an 80 percent chance that you've been arrested before an average of 10 times," Booker said Oct. 13 on WBGO’s "Newark Today," just days after a daytime shooting spree in a public housing complex in Newark’s Central Ward. "So we know the players here. If you are getting shot or doing the shooting, overwhelmingly you've been involved in the criminal justice system and the correctional system is not correcting."

    PolitiFact New Jersey was also startled by the data. So, we researched Booker’s claim.

    Newark spokeswoman Anne Torres said Booker’s "statement should have been shot and killed, instead of shot," but beyond that he’s right.

    Harry, not so long ago there was a mass shooting at Buffalo’s downtown City Grille. Eight were shot, by one shooter, four died on scene and one succumbed to his injuries last year. Margaret Sullivan, former Buffalo News and NYT editor, had the temerity to point out that 7 of the victims were former felons. The black community jumped on her with both feet. The shooter was known in the hood, but it took weeks to get him in custody. After awhile this all grows wearisome, I actually think it is a badge of honor, almost like being a “Gold Star Mother” to have one of your sons offed in the hood. Stay safe.

    I read a novel in the 80's titled "Stone City" about an English professor who had been sent to prison for a DUI related vehicular homicide . It was a good story . At one point he refers to a study of the relation between cancer and tattoos . Supposedly tattoos with a negative theme correlated with a higher rate of cancer than tattoos with a more positive theme which correlated with a lower rate of cancer than the first group and lower rates than people with no tattoos at all . I remembered it because it seemed like a strange thing to stick in the story . I looked the author up when the internet came along and there was no bio . On Amazon his only other books were erotic themed westerns , really odd . I looked up studies regarding cancer and tattoos but they all deal with cancer related to certain types of inks used .

    The lockdowns are responsible for far more deaths than BLM. The lockdowns are also the main reason for the BLM rioting this summer, as the lockdowns resulted in shuttering all schools and social gatherings resulting in massive protests.

    40 million Americans lost their jobs as the lockdowns went into the third month, and schools and activities shut down with for three months that for many meant near total lockdown of their lives in New York City and elsewhere, the protests were able to gain incredible momentum, especially among young people....With millions of young people stuck at home with not much to do. It was the perfect storm for protesting and rioting. George Floyd's death was the spark, but the lockdowns are at the foundation of today's grievances. The lockdowns caused tens of thousands of preventable deaths, millions of people to lose their jobs. The extended lockdowns have amplified the inequities in America and the consequences will be prolonged civil unrest and increased poverty for years to come.

    Jack, hard to say. Buffalo has rock solid housing, if it is maintained, and in the 60s had rust belt heavy industry that paid very good wages. I graduated from college in '68 and bought my first home three years later, in a first ring suburb, for the price and the school district. My best friend bought a first and only house in Buffalo's Elmwood Village, supposedly one of the best neighborhoods in America, 40 plus years ago. He paid less than $25K and the houses on his street regularly sell for $400K plus. The old ethnic neighborhoods were mostly upper/lower doubles, so if you don't want tenants the suburbs were for you. Buffalo's black neighborhoods were solid also, with good housing and a strong business district. Busing! The only reason to flee. My childhood street was so different from what you find today in America. Our next door neighbor owned a big laundry business, next door, on the other side, was a stationary engineer, next to a butcher, next to the president of a trucking line, next to a mail carrier, across from a truck driver, next to an artist, next to a plant manager,next to the business agent for the electricians local union, next to a bus driver,next to an accountant. My Dad was an electrician for a major manufacturing plant. I think the school busing was the cause. Buffalo had an almost all black HS, East High, and the kids there loved their school. Football,basketball,track championships. Cheer leaders that were black in a black neighborhood. Liberals fuck up everything they touch. Stay safe Mr.D.

Soon enough you won’t be able to afford insurance and then people will start to really complain about crime.

    The excess murders in 2020 from Memorial Day 2020 onward are comparable to all the lynchings in American history.
     
    Great point. Also, from what I recall of the history of lynchings:

    a) Black people are being killed in higher proportion in these shootings than were lynched.

    b) A greater proportion of those black people killed lately are innocent, compared to those lynched.

    (That is, unless disrespectin someone or cheating him out of a piece of fried chicken are seen as capital crimes now in the black community.)

    Family members identify mother and two children fatally shot in St. Paul
    A person of interest was arrested Sunday night.

    By Liz Sawyer — Minneapolis Star Tribune Feb. 1, 2021

    D'Zondria Wallace dreamed of building a new life for her family in Minnesota. She never got the chance.

    Less than six months after she had relocated to St. Paul, a gunman fatally shot Wallace and her two children inside their Payne-Phalen apartment. Police are investigating the slaying as a possible act of domestic violence and arrested a 26-year-old person of interest Sunday night.

    "I can't stop crying. My babies are gone," her mother, Mary Wallace, said in a phone interview from her home in Memphis before the arrest was made. "I need justice."

    In a scene that Chief Todd Axtell described as "hellish," first responders on Saturday found Wallace, 30, and her 14-year-old daughter, La'Porsha, dead inside the fourplex in the 700 block of Jessie Street. Her son, Ja'Corbie, 11, died a few hours later at Regions Hospital. Wallace was two months pregnant.

    An officer had been called to the home on a welfare check only an hour before the shooting. He turned away after D'Zondria answered the door and assured him that she was all right.

    The killing occurred just two blocks from the scene of a double homicide on Jan. 21 and shook a capital city already plagued by levels of gun violence not seen since the mid-90s.

    “…Like many Black women who were born in the mid-to-late 1980s, I turned to TV shows that were popular during the ‘90s and aughts to escape common insecurities teens face. With the flick of a remote control, I was able to forget about shrinking into a corner because of my dark complexion, kinky hair texture and lanky frame.

    My attention was drawn to Black characters on Living Single, Moesha and Girlfriends who oozed self-confidence. I’d add these female leads to my mental mood board in hopes that someday — and hopefully sooner than later — I’d be able to embrace all aspects of myself with the same boldness.

    The lockdowns are responsible for far more deaths than BLM. The lockdowns are also the main reason for the BLM rioting this summer, as the lockdowns resulted in shuttering all schools and social gatherings resulting in massive protests.

    40 million Americans lost their jobs as the lockdowns went into the third month, and schools and activities shut down with for three months that for many meant near total lockdown of their lives in New York City and elsewhere, the protests were able to gain incredible momentum, especially among young people....With millions of young people stuck at home with not much to do. It was the perfect storm for protesting and rioting. George Floyd's death was the spark, but the lockdowns are at the foundation of today's grievances. The lockdowns caused tens of thousands of preventable deaths, millions of people to lose their jobs. The extended lockdowns have amplified the inequities in America and the consequences will be prolonged civil unrest and increased poverty for years to come.

    Jack, hard to say. Buffalo has rock solid housing, if it is maintained, and in the 60s had rust belt heavy industry that paid very good wages. I graduated from college in ’68 and bought my first home three years later, in a first ring suburb, for the price and the school district. My best friend bought a first and only house in Buffalo’s Elmwood Village, supposedly one of the best neighborhoods in America, 40 plus years ago. He paid less than $25K and the houses on his street regularly sell for $400K plus. The old ethnic neighborhoods were mostly upper/lower doubles, so if you don’t want tenants the suburbs were for you. Buffalo’s black neighborhoods were solid also, with good housing and a strong business district. Busing! The only reason to flee. My childhood street was so different from what you find today in America. Our next door neighbor owned a big laundry business, next door, on the other side, was a stationary engineer, next to a butcher, next to the president of a trucking line, next to a mail carrier, across from a truck driver, next to an artist, next to a plant manager,next to the business agent for the electricians local union, next to a bus driver,next to an accountant. My Dad was an electrician for a major manufacturing plant. I think the school busing was the cause. Buffalo had an almost all black HS, East High, and the kids there loved their school. Football,basketball,track championships. Cheer leaders that were black in a black neighborhood. Liberals fuck up everything they touch. Stay safe Mr.D.

Blood is only about 6% more dense than water, maybe a little more when you’re full of white cells, but let’s just call that 7 lb/G.

    If you could get all the embalmers, probably by threatening a grievance with their union (didn’t it used to be the Teamsters?), to hold onto all that blood rather than flushing it down the sewer lines, then you have a million and a half pounds of blood, rounding back up. Well, the problem is the head. The water headed into hydroelectric turbines is at a big elevation above the turbines, or there is no energy to extract.

    If you had a 50 ft. head, say the height of the average morgue above your hypothetical bloody power turbine, than that’s 75 million ft-lb = ~ 28 kW-hr = .028 MW-hr. Even with 100% efficiency, that’ll power Greater London* for about 22 milliseconds. Bloody brilliant idea, John!

    Going only by official city population is misleading because of the flight to the suburbs. Using the population of city's Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area gives a more realistic impression of the city's size and economic power.

    By that measure, Buffalo, NY is the nation's 49th largest SMSA with a metro population of 1,127,983, making it the 2nd largest city in New York state, just ahead of Rochester with 1,069,644, and well ahead of Albany (880,381) and Syracuse (648,593).



    Michigan's 2nd city is Grand Rapids with an SMSA of 1,077,370, followed by Lansing (550, 351) and Flint (405,813).

    Ohio has a number of largish cities led by Cincinnati with 2,221,208, Columbus at 2,122,271, and Cleveland with 2,048,449, followed by Dayton (807,611), Akron (703,479), Toledo (641,816), and Canton (397,520).

    Recently there was a case in NY where a guy was set upon by a gang of black men and stripped and beaten the moment he stepped off a long distance bus that had just arrived in NY Chinatown. At first it seemed mysterious - why had this man been so viciously attacked? But then it came out that this guy had a rap sheet a mile long and while on the bus ride from Atlanta he had robbed one of the passengers of his phone and his sneakers and everything else (as well as made the bus ride a living hell for everyone else - I don't know if you have ever been so unfortunate as to be on a bus or train with a disruptive Negro but it's amazing how much one antisocial black ruin a trip for dozens of others). At some point during the ride the victim borrowed a phone and had called his family and they were waiting to impose justice the moment the bus arrived.

    The white man's justice system no longer works in the ghetto - the clearance rate on murders in most big cities is very low. We know from history that when the official justice system doesn't work, people will create their own parallel system of informal justice - that was what lynching was all about. We also know from the history of blood feuds that there is often a cycle of violence - a Hatfield kills a McCoy so a Hatfield must be murdered in revenge and the Hatfields must then avenge his death, etc., etc. endlessly.

    In normal times the police interfere with this cycle of violence, but when they get the signal (a giant beacon that flashes the words "Black Lives Matter" into the sky) they retire to the donut shop and blacks feel empowered to pursue their natural tendencies and the US murder rate approaches that of Haiti. This is known as "keepin' it real".

    Even the law abiding will not cooperate with police against neighbourhood homies (or in yesteryear wiseguys). While a few men come to enjoy killing for its own sake, it’s basically true that there is an informal retribution on the antisocial in ethnically distinct city neighbourhoods. It is just that white ones no longer exist. There are juries reluctant to convict one of their own, and there can be no bystander witness interaction with law enforcement at all once the alternative informal justice system in in place. Thugs do kill each other mainly, but they also kill snitches on principle, meaning anyone that has ever snitched is fair game for all, and not just for those that they have informed on.

    Schuster was a young New York man who successfully identified fugitive bank robber Willie Sutton, resulting in Sutton’s arrest. When Anastasia saw Schuster being interviewed on television, he allegedly said: “I can’t stand squealers! Hit that guy!”On March 8, 1952, a gunman shot Schuster to death on a street in Borough Park, Brooklyn

    A precedent for Black Lives Matter.

    https://bklyner.com/10-most-ruthless-mobsters-from-bensonhurst-bensonhurst/

    While most mob bosses tried to lay low and avoid media attention, the highly charismatic Joe Columbo courted it. When federal agencies started investigating the dealings of the Mafia, the New Utrecht High School drop-out brazenly accused them of scapegoating Italian Americans and founded the Italian-American Civil Rights League, which denied the Mafia existed, and branded anyone who claimed otherwise an anti-Italian racist.

    Columbo’s movement became hugely popular, and 150,000 people flooded Manhattan’s Columbus Circle on June 29, 1970, at the League’s first public rally. Frank Sinatra was among many celebrities who appeared in a benefit for the League held at Madison Square Garden later that year.

    The difference with BLM is it not a movement of career criminals, and they live in a different world from gangstas so have no fear of getting shot themselves. Still, it is culpably reckless to nullify the police preventive measures against gunmen, and then ignore the resultant internecine mayhem among blacks living the gang-star dream.

    I think BLM was a kind of cultural revolution a la China rather than 1917 Russia. Mao reversed course against left deviations and worker’ democracy comunes that started forming, Biden is going to find it easy to squash the aspects of BLM that are a threat to him, and more importantly government employees will cease the insubordination that was so evident under Trump. The top general argued with Trump and point blank refused to be be used against the BLM riots even though the regular army had been called out by Obama and Bush against disorder in black areas. The army and others with safe government jobs and pensions are now going to show willing. As with China, a period of disorder will be followed by a totalitarian supreme leadership dominating. Biden signed 40 executive orders. But Mao died soon after re-establishing control and bequeathed the absolute authority he had to Deng, who used it to institute policies Mao never dreamt of.

    a) Black people are being killed in higher proportion in these shootings than were lynched.

    b) A greater proportion of those black people killed lately are innocent, compared to those lynched.

    (That is, unless disrespectin someone or cheating him out of a piece of fried chicken are seen as capital crimes now in the black community.)

    I assume that the vast majority of these are black-on-black murders, so one or two years of these recent-year murders is much greater than the entire number of black lynchings from 1878 to 1968.

    True story. Several years ago my in-laws were over for Easter brunch. Kids had a lot of fun playing in the backyard while the adults chatted and ate and so got filthy because of our pleasing distractedness, among them my then-9 year old mulatto niece.

NC and Colorado technically have two but I don’t count Raleigh and Colorado Springs as real cities. St. Louis is now #66 but the comparisons are not exactly fair because some cities (St. Louis) only include the core city whereas in some place they annex their suburbs into the city boundaries.

  135. Good interview with Razib:

    First, there was the ideological and cultural polarization, which impacted the whole spectrum. The development of the liberal “reality based community” in the 2000s reflects a natural reaction to a certain strand in right-wing political practice which emphasized rhetoric, framing, and information manipulation. George W. Bush’s administration aimed to wield physical and informational power. Initially, the reaction on the left was a flight to objectivity, even scientism. Richard Dawkin’s espousal of “New Atheism” in the period
    between 2005-2010 reflects this.

    But in the years after 2010 the old ways collapsed on the left. One might conjecture that these currents were unleashed due to the Great Disappointment of Barack Obama’s presidency when his election did not
    usher in an era of utopian racial and religious harmony. On the contrary, Obama’s first term was characterized by cautious center-left neoliberalism.

    The rise of the new religion, of the woke, comes out of the sense of betrayal and disappointment. Their victory came not due to their delusional epistemology, but because they saw in the subordination of reality to their will the path out of the cold world which rejects their utopianism. Human flourishing is no longer constrained by nature in any manner, but only limited by imagination. The idea that any non-representative distribution in any field by race, sex, or sexual orientation, might have todo with preexisting aptitudes or preferences is rejected in favor of the idea that this is the outcome of a malevolent will. Systemic racism, systemic sexism, systemic heteronormativity. Demons. Anti-Christs.

    Just as the early Christians were radical cultists who were on fire for their savior, so the early wokists espouses views that were mocked and dismissed by the pagans all around them. But where the early Christians found their Constantine, the woke have captured and scaled every major institution in American society: the academy, journalism, and industry.

    In the academy, the new religion was long restricted to a few departments. But over the past ten years, it has marched from strength to strength. Men and women who five years ago scoffed at the idea of a “sexual spectrum” privately now speak of it reverently in public. Are they frauds? Or do they now sincerely believe in the new order? Does it matter?

    First comes false words. Then public practice. Finally, private sincere belief. Read 1984 and its conclusion. This is what I have seen.

    https://youtu.be/GNYbLjQpuDc Even the law abiding will not cooperate with police against neighbourhood homies (or in yesteryear wiseguys). While a few men come to enjoy killing for its own sake, it's basically true that there is an informal retribution on the antisocial in ethnically distinct city neighbourhoods. It is just that white ones no longer exist. There are juries reluctant to convict one of their own, and there can be no bystander witness interaction with law enforcement at all once the alternative informal justice system in in place. Thugs do kill each other mainly, but they also kill snitches on principle, meaning anyone that has ever snitched is fair game for all, and not just for those that they have informed on.


    Schuster was a young New York man who successfully identified fugitive bank robber Willie Sutton, resulting in Sutton's arrest. When Anastasia saw Schuster being interviewed on television, he allegedly said: "I can't stand squealers! Hit that guy!"On March 8, 1952, a gunman shot Schuster to death on a street in Borough Park, Brooklyn

    https://bklyner.com/10-most-ruthless-mobsters-from-bensonhurst-bensonhurst/

    While most mob bosses tried to lay low and avoid media attention, the highly charismatic Joe Columbo courted it. When federal agencies started investigating the dealings of the Mafia, the New Utrecht High School drop-out brazenly accused them of scapegoating Italian Americans and founded the Italian-American Civil Rights League, which denied the Mafia existed, and branded anyone who claimed otherwise an anti-Italian racist.

    Columbo’s movement became hugely popular, and 150,000 people flooded Manhattan’s Columbus Circle on June 29, 1970, at the League’s first public rally. Frank Sinatra was among many celebrities who appeared in a benefit for the League held at Madison Square Garden later that year.

     

    The difference with BLM is it not a movement of career criminals, and they live in a different world from gangstas so have no fear of getting shot themselves. Still, it is culpably reckless to nullify the police preventive measures against gunmen, and then ignore the resultant internecine mayhem among blacks living the gang-star dream.

    I think BLM was a kind of cultural revolution a la China rather than 1917 Russia. Mao reversed course against left deviations and worker' democracy comunes that started forming, Biden is going to find it easy to squash the aspects of BLM that are a threat to him, and more importantly government employees will cease the insubordination that was so evident under Trump. The top general argued with Trump and point blank refused to be be used against the BLM riots even though the regular army had been called out by Obama and Bush against disorder in black areas. The army and others with safe government jobs and pensions are now going to show willing. As with China, a period of disorder will be followed by a totalitarian supreme leadership dominating. Biden signed 40 executive orders. But Mao died soon after re-establishing control and bequeathed the absolute authority he had to Deng, who used it to institute policies Mao never dreamt of.

    Deng only succeeded because Mao ended the Cultural Revolution by what were in effect military governors, then brought Deng into the leadership circle . Mao then died just as he was beginning to reverse course on Deng's reforms.

    Biden is not going to push it with impeachment of Trump of expulsion of Trumpists from Congress. If he lives long enough, he'll do a deal with McConnell and it will be business and usual with BLM forgotten, a refugee resettlement infrastructure rebuild, and back to the preTrump level inflow replacement immigration. Xi got rid of Trump--more worried about golf that whether he could trust Xi over the Wunan disease in January and February--yet Biden gets the credit for Trump having more time to work on his game. So the normative authority of the White House has never been stronger, while the health of the occupant has never been weaker; multiple fractures of the foot while stepping out the shower are very ominous.

    A greater proportion of those black people killed lately are innocent, compared to those lynched.

    This is probably true, but still, according to Cory Booker, the great majority of blacks killed are not exactly innocent. From 2011:


    "If you are shot in the city of Newark, you have over an 80 percent chance that you've been arrested before an average of 10 times," Booker said Oct. 13 on WBGO’s "Newark Today," just days after a daytime shooting spree in a public housing complex in Newark’s Central Ward. "So we know the players here. If you are getting shot or doing the shooting, overwhelmingly you've been involved in the criminal justice system and the correctional system is not correcting."

    PolitiFact New Jersey was also startled by the data. So, we researched Booker’s claim.

    Newark spokeswoman Anne Torres said Booker’s "statement should have been shot and killed, instead of shot," but beyond that he’s right.

    Black social shootings tend to involve the shooter keeps blasting away into a crowd at a social event until the intended victim, usually another criminal, goes down. The innocent bystanders standing around nearby eating ribs are more likely to be wounded than killed.

  148. There is little doubt that BLM is responsible for millions of deaths that would not otherwise have occurred. While we can’t be precise about the BLM fatality numbers due to death from disease, suicide and so on, I would have estimated total number of deaths to be 7 million.

    And then there is the huge number who have been made unemployed, although some are fighting back. One Washington resident is even taking his case to the Senate, where he will claim that he was unjustly fired and evicted from his residence as a result of a BLM protest that he copped the blame for.

    The Senate is expected to uphold his case and order his employer to give him back his desk and chair in an office with no corners.

  149. Its a lot worse than you think.

    Remember, for each of those murderers who would not have been murderers absent the hatred inspired by people who should have known better, there are one or two little brothers, and sometimes a little sister, who admire their big brother even more than they otherwise would have, because he killed somebody ….
    this is not a race thing, it is a decent civilization versus a violent civilization thing.

    How about while he was prime minister? Surely Begin mellowed somewhat in his later years? Nope. The Sharon-supervised Sabra and Shatila massacre wasn’t the only Israeli terrorist operation to occur on his watch. The IDF-run terrorist group Front for the Liberation of Lebanon from Foreigners carried out hundreds of terrorist bombings, killing untold numbers of civilians… and attempted to assassinate the [jewish] US ambassador to Lebanon, John Gunther Dean.

    The lockdowns are responsible for far more deaths than BLM. The lockdowns are also the main reason for the BLM rioting this summer, as the lockdowns resulted in shuttering all schools and social gatherings resulting in massive protests.

    40 million Americans lost their jobs as the lockdowns went into the third month, and schools and activities shut down with for three months that for many meant near total lockdown of their lives in New York City and elsewhere, the protests were able to gain incredible momentum, especially among young people....With millions of young people stuck at home with not much to do. It was the perfect storm for protesting and rioting. George Floyd's death was the spark, but the lockdowns are at the foundation of today's grievances. The lockdowns caused tens of thousands of preventable deaths, millions of people to lose their jobs. The extended lockdowns have amplified the inequities in America and the consequences will be prolonged civil unrest and increased poverty for years to come.

    Replies: @Stan Adams, @TWS, @Hernan Pizzaro del Blanco, @Prester John

    True, without the lockdowns the BLM protests never would have spread to NYC , Seattle, Portland, etc… The protests went nationwide and offered the young people their only opportunity to socialize after being locked inside for months wasting hours on social media because they no longer had school or jobs to attend. The lockdowns will be shown to have caused far more deaths and destruction than the coronavirus.

    While the BLM protests certainly resulted in a few thousand extra Black killings, the lockdowns increased white deaths of despair , resulting in 10,000 more drug deaths and 10,000 more suicides along with the bankruptcy of countless Americans. The death toll of the lockdowns will have far worse consequences for America than the Black deaths caused by the BLM protests, and pandering to the BLM movement.

    Recently there was a case in NY where a guy was set upon by a gang of black men and stripped and beaten the moment he stepped off a long distance bus that had just arrived in NY Chinatown. At first it seemed mysterious - why had this man been so viciously attacked? But then it came out that this guy had a rap sheet a mile long and while on the bus ride from Atlanta he had robbed one of the passengers of his phone and his sneakers and everything else (as well as made the bus ride a living hell for everyone else - I don't know if you have ever been so unfortunate as to be on a bus or train with a disruptive Negro but it's amazing how much one antisocial black ruin a trip for dozens of others). At some point during the ride the victim borrowed a phone and had called his family and they were waiting to impose justice the moment the bus arrived.

    The white man's justice system no longer works in the ghetto - the clearance rate on murders in most big cities is very low. We know from history that when the official justice system doesn't work, people will create their own parallel system of informal justice - that was what lynching was all about. We also know from the history of blood feuds that there is often a cycle of violence - a Hatfield kills a McCoy so a Hatfield must be murdered in revenge and the Hatfields must then avenge his death, etc., etc. endlessly.

    In normal times the police interfere with this cycle of violence, but when they get the signal (a giant beacon that flashes the words "Black Lives Matter" into the sky) they retire to the donut shop and blacks feel empowered to pursue their natural tendencies and the US murder rate approaches that of Haiti. This is known as "keepin' it real".

    At age 19 I took a greyhound bus from Detroit to Louisville. A drunk old black man kept leering at me through the space between the seats in front of me. I held up a magazine so I couldn’t see him. When I put the magazine down it was full of spit tobacco juice. Being 19 I was petrified and said nothing until I got to the Louisville bus station. The attendant took me behind the counter and made sure the black spitting idiot didn’t get on my connecting bus. Now it seems that air travel has become a greyhound with wings.

    That is why it is a thing that female tourists travelling in the Third World and getting constantly harassed, end up in a relationship with an indigenous man . He functions as a hired gun who prevents a swarm of males from bothering her 24/7. The blogger fabius maximus said when he was social worker in a black ghetto areas during the 1970s it was clear that girls needed some kind of a relationship with a local youth gang member in order to "survive".

    It is collective violence for sure. Boys with loyalty, courage, and physical prowess employ those qualities in a misguided way because they are invested in a bad group. In choosing your friends you automatically choose your path. Community is behind a lot of perseverance in wrongdoing.

    But that ethos also means the vendettas are collective and you may not even have had direct contact with the who you are shooting at. I don't think multiple shootings are collateral damage caused by shooting at an individual. In my opinion they are a more a function of a group mindset in which if you roll with them you get shot with them too, maybe even if you are just attending their funeral. That scattergun approach to marksmanship is maybe a reason for holding the Glock sideways gangsta-style.

    Counting top 50 cities, I should have put Florida and Arizona on the list with TX and CA. At one time Ohio and PA would have had two top 50s but Cleveland is now #53 and Pittsburgh is #66. NC and Colorado technically have two but I don't count Raleigh and Colorado Springs as real cities. St. Louis is now #66 but the comparisons are not exactly fair because some cities (St. Louis) only include the core city whereas in some place they annex their suburbs into the city boundaries.

    Not far from George Floyd Square:

    Family members identify mother and two children fatally shot in St. Paul
    A person of interest was arrested Sunday night.

    By Liz Sawyer — Minneapolis Star Tribune Feb. 1, 2021

    D'Zondria Wallace dreamed of building a new life for her family in Minnesota. She never got the chance.

    Less than six months after she had relocated to St. Paul, a gunman fatally shot Wallace and her two children inside their Payne-Phalen apartment. Police are investigating the slaying as a possible act of domestic violence and arrested a 26-year-old person of interest Sunday night.

    "I can't stop crying. My babies are gone," her mother, Mary Wallace, said in a phone interview from her home in Memphis before the arrest was made. "I need justice."

    In a scene that Chief Todd Axtell described as "hellish," first responders on Saturday found Wallace, 30, and her 14-year-old daughter, La'Porsha, dead inside the fourplex in the 700 block of Jessie Street. Her son, Ja'Corbie, 11, died a few hours later at Regions Hospital. Wallace was two months pregnant.

    An officer had been called to the home on a welfare check only an hour before the shooting. He turned away after D'Zondria answered the door and assured him that she was all right.

    The killing occurred just two blocks from the scene of a double homicide on Jan. 21 and shook a capital city already plagued by levels of gun violence not seen since the mid-90s.

    And this surely will result in yet another young black man getting a criminal record.

    What is it, to defund or not to defund? Perhaps we should ask Hamlet.

At one point he refers to a study of the relation between cancer and tattoos . Supposedly tattoos with a negative theme correlated with a higher rate of cancer than tattoos with a more positive theme which correlated with a lower rate of cancer than the first group and lower rates than people with no tattoos at all . I remembered it because it seemed like a strange thing to stick in the story . I looked the author up when the internet came along and there was no bio . On Amazon his only other books were erotic themed westerns , really odd . I looked up studies regarding cancer and tattoos but they all deal with cancer related to certain types of inks used .

    To a Leftist, money is this magical thing that the government just prints up to do all sorts of good things. There is no limit to the number of good things that the government can do and so no limit to the amount of money that it should spend. There is no distinction between doing work that is wealth generating (like producing energy) and work that is a sink for wealth (like mine reclamation) so it’s no big deal if everyone is employed doing non-productive stuff (or just sitting home collecting their guarantied income).

    The lockdowns are responsible for far more deaths than BLM. The lockdowns are also the main reason for the BLM rioting this summer, as the lockdowns resulted in shuttering all schools and social gatherings resulting in massive protests.

    40 million Americans lost their jobs as the lockdowns went into the third month, and schools and activities shut down with for three months that for many meant near total lockdown of their lives in New York City and elsewhere, the protests were able to gain incredible momentum, especially among young people....With millions of young people stuck at home with not much to do. It was the perfect storm for protesting and rioting. George Floyd's death was the spark, but the lockdowns are at the foundation of today's grievances. The lockdowns caused tens of thousands of preventable deaths, millions of people to lose their jobs. The extended lockdowns have amplified the inequities in America and the consequences will be prolonged civil unrest and increased poverty for years to come.

    Jack, hard to say. Buffalo has rock solid housing, if it is maintained, and in the 60s had rust belt heavy industry that paid very good wages. I graduated from college in '68 and bought my first home three years later, in a first ring suburb, for the price and the school district. My best friend bought a first and only house in Buffalo's Elmwood Village, supposedly one of the best neighborhoods in America, 40 plus years ago. He paid less than $25K and the houses on his street regularly sell for $400K plus. The old ethnic neighborhoods were mostly upper/lower doubles, so if you don't want tenants the suburbs were for you. Buffalo's black neighborhoods were solid also, with good housing and a strong business district. Busing! The only reason to flee. My childhood street was so different from what you find today in America. Our next door neighbor owned a big laundry business, next door, on the other side, was a stationary engineer, next to a butcher, next to the president of a trucking line, next to a mail carrier, across from a truck driver, next to an artist, next to a plant manager,next to the business agent for the electricians local union, next to a bus driver,next to an accountant. My Dad was an electrician for a major manufacturing plant. I think the school busing was the cause. Buffalo had an almost all black HS, East High, and the kids there loved their school. Football,basketball,track championships. Cheer leaders that were black in a black neighborhood. Liberals fuck up everything they touch. Stay safe Mr.D.

    People my age were told they had to move to the big cities of America to find their fortune and so many did. I don’t know of many that returned.

I recall a figure being bandied about of around 1,000 officers annually, ( non-retirement age ) won’t that just return the numbers back to what it was before?

    {"This wouldn’t be the first time the prize went to a terrorist."}

    Quite true: in 1978 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to well know terrorist - in his earlier life - Menachim Begin (....together with Anwar Sadat).

    The Jewish terrorist group Irgun - of which Menachim Begin was a high ranking member - carried out the King David Hotel bombing in Jerusalem, killing/murdering dozens of (innocent) civilians.

    The absurdity of the Nobel so-called '"Peace" prize is too obvious.

    Seems kind of appropriate for a prize created by the creator of dynamite. The whole thing is best taken in a spirit of irony.

  187. Not all the dead are members of the black underclass. The knockout game is still popular, and here is a terrible story of a lethal attack in San Francisco, including video:

    https://abc7news.com/san-francisco-senior-attacked-sf-man-pushed-on-video-day-time-attack-caught-anza-vista-crime/10205928/

    The victim was an 84-year-old Thai man, Vicha Ratanapadkdee, who had immigrated to join his family. Perhaps because of his intersectional Pokemon points, the story is actually getting reported.

    The news anchor spoke the disingenuous words “It is unclear what may have motivated that attack,” as if this was the first ever report of the knockout game.

    As if by coincidence, the video ends with the message “NEXT UP: Why are people leaving CA? In-depth look at population shifts.”

    SWEDEN LAMENTS! VULNERABLE AREAS DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED!

    Swedish capital sees 79% spike in shootings as govt laments ‘high levels’ of violence in the Scandinavian country


    Most of the violent incidents occurred in 60 suburbs across the country identified by police as “vulnerable” areas. Damberg said that while 5.4 percent of Sweden’s population live in such neighborhoods, they account for more than half of the nation’s fatal shootings.

    [Interior Minister Mikael Damberg ] expressed hope, however, that 2021 would be a “turnaround” year that would usher in a drastic improvement in safety. The government has rolled out a plan to increase the number of police recruits in the country, with the goal of having 10,000 more officers in 2024 when compared to figures from 2016.
     

    Just keep on hoping.

    Harry, not so long ago there was a mass shooting at Buffalo's downtown City Grille. Eight were shot, by one shooter, four died on scene and one succumbed to his injuries last year. Margaret Sullivan, former Buffalo News and NYT editor, had the temerity to point out that 7 of the victims were former felons. The black community jumped on her with both feet. The shooter was known in the hood, but it took weeks to get him in custody. After awhile this all grows wearisome, I actually think it is a badge of honor, almost like being a "Gold Star Mother" to have one of your sons offed in the hood. Stay safe.

    It’s not just the ‘hood. Remember the hysterical outrage from the black community when, after his death, some people tried reminding us that Kobe Bryant had rape charges against him and wasn’t the second coming of Christ. Those people were excoriated, at least one lost her job.

    Western New Yorker here. I grew up in a second ring suburb of Rochester, 25 years younger than Buffalo Joe. Just based on what I know of the 200 people I graduated from HS with, 80+% of those who went to college never returned to town much less to the city of Rochester.

    People my age were told they had to move to the big cities of America to find their fortune and so many did. I don't know of many that returned. We've thought about moving to my hometown but living in NYS makes no economic sense as you'll have to pay for the problems of inner city Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse and, of course, NYC.

    FourNineFive, I graduated from college in 1968. WNY, at least around Buffalo, was still doing well. So, graduate, get a good job here. Most of my HS buddies stayed local as did my college buddies from WNY. The dorm guys mostly headed back to their hometowns.

    Official: Bay Area sheriff's deputy faked drive-by shooting of himself

    Santa Clara County Sheriff Deputy Sukhdeep Gill

    MORGAN HILL, Calif. (AP) — A San Francisco Bay Area deputy who said a gunman ambushed him last year and his body camera stopped the bullet was arrested Friday on suspicion of felony vandalism and filing a false police report.

    Santa Clara County sheriff's Deputy Sukhdeep Gill lied when he told officials that a car pulled up while he was on patrol in Morgan Hill the night of Jan. 31, 2020, and someone inside opened fire, striking his body camera, Sgt. Michael Low, a sheriff's department spokesman, said in a statement.

    This is hardly unusual behavior with these clowns. In WA state, a Sikh claimed he was shot by a white guy for no reason. Imaginary white guy was never found, nor any trace of him.

    In Saskatoon, Saskatchewan a Muslim told the nutty story of how he was pinned to a hedge by a truck driven by an imaginary “white supremacist”, who of course was never found.

    Apparently this white supremacist had a brick in his car just in case he pinned a geriatric Muslim to a bush and wanted to smash the windows of the Muslim’s house at the same time.

    Fake Hate Crimes are everywhere we permit these idiots to get away with it.

    According to the Tuskegee Institute, 4,743 people were lynched between 1882 and 1968 in the United States, including 3,446 African Americans and 1,297 whites.

    Blacks lynched per year (1882-1968): ~ 40*
    Blacks killed each year (1999-2015): ~ 6,500
    Blacks killed by blacks each year: ~ 5,800**

    * total: 3,446 (whites: 1,297)
    ** ~ 90% of 6,500

    The (black!) victim count of 86 years of lynching equals 7 months of black on black killings each year.

  195. @Old and Grumpy
    I have yet to hear one black person link the uptick of urban murders to the BLM defund the police movement. Apparently blacks prefer patronization rather than breathing. And yet again, where are they getting their never ending supply of ammo? Should that go back to BLM or Obama's Fast and Furious, and then you might make all things black a bit more dicey. Sadly the average black will still prefer a figurative case of diaper rash over dealing with their violent behavior.

    Victimhood status is all they have. They’ll never give it up. At least not willingly.
