In iSteve’s continuing coverage of Madison, Wisconsin, from Channel 3000:

Madison police say 3 shot during memorial service at park, describe scene as ‘chaotic’
Posted: August 5, 2020 1:34 PM

MADISON, Wis. — Three people were shot Tuesday night in Madison while attending a memorial service for a homicide victim.

The shooting happened around 9 p.m. as several hundred people, including children, were at Garner Park honoring the life of Maurice Bowman, who was shot and killed ten days ago on Shroeder Road.

Madison police described the scene as chaotic during a press conference Wednesday afternoon. Officers could reportedly see muzzle flashes as they ran into the park.

“People were fleeing into the neighborhoods, hiding in backyards, hiding behind trees, trying to escape the shooting,” Wahl said. …

“The fact that there were no fatalities or not a much higher level of injuries is just something. We’re lucky, we should all be grateful for,” Wahl said.

Three guns and dozens of spent shell casings were found at the park. One of those guns was an assault-style weapon.

“When you have 63 plus rounds being fired, some from an assault rifle in a neighborhood like this, there’s no doubt that creates a risk to the community,” Wahl said.

Two people, a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old man, were arrested in connection to the shooting.

Just from reading headlines, it seems like during this Summer of George, lots of blacks have been shot by other blacks at funerals or memorial services for blacks shot by blacks. Fortunately, nobody was killed at this memorial or that would have led to another memorial at which there would have been more easy targets for shooters. And potentially on ad infinitum.

There seems like an easy thing Democratic mayors and governors could do to blunt the spike in black on black carnage since May 24, 2020: announce that the ban on large funerals/memorials applies to blacks, too.

For example, my uncle died at 96 in the spring, but we haven’t had a memorial service for him yet, because they aren’t allowed. But, as we saw with the giant George Floyd and John Lewis funeral orgies, those rules don’t apply to blacks, because the equal protection of the laws is racist when it stops black people from doing something black people feel like doing.

In more Madison news, the four “classic Wisconsin frat boys” who set young Althea Bernstein on fire on June 24 when she was definitely not at the riot/arson that was going on, just nearby, are still on the loose.

  1. They’re at funerals in the first place because they are a murder opportunity. Get rid of funerals and they’ll shoot up what opportunities present themselves, like testing centers. What they need is marksmanship lessons and a one-shot ethos. The real problem is all the spraying.

    Funny thing.i went just this morning to a funeral this morning for a friend of 30 years. A white man of course. No shots rang out.No gun violence erupted. No drive by shootings. White privlege I guess

    Hollywood loves their black people. They should do the right thing and send in replacement actors as attendees at these funerals. What better way to support the poor victimized black families. Jurnee Smollett could build them a nice table as well.

    If they weren't so murderous, I'd be sympathetic. Guns require a *lot* of practise to be able to hit anything. And that literally means anything - there have been cases in both war and in peacetime, when someone's shot at a house from the road, and maybe hit the edges once.

    If you really want to reduce gun violence (and a racially specific First Amendment isn't an option, unfortunately) then introducing gun licenses, costing real time and money, would be a good start. Treat infractions like you would someone driving a car without one. Make people aware of what kind of time, thought, money and practise it actually takes

  7. When Piso brought Caesar’s body into the Forum, a huge number of armed men gathered to guard it. It was laid with lavish pomp and cries of mourning on the rostra, whereupon wailing and lamentation arose again for a long time, and the armed men clashed their weapons, and very soon people began to change their minds about the amnesty. Then Marc Antony, seeing their state of mind, did not give up hope. He had been chosen to deliver the funeral oration as a consul for a consul, a friend for a friend, and a kinsman for a kinsman (being related to Caesar through his mother), and so he again pursued his tactic and spoke as follows.

    “It is not right, my fellow-citizens, for the funeral oration in praise of so great a man to be delivered by me, a single individual, instead of by his whole country. The honors that all of you alike, first Senate and then People, decreed for him in admiration of his qualities when he was still alive, these I shall read aloud and regard my voice as being not mine, but yours.”

    He then read them out with a proud and thunderous expression on his face, emphasizing each with his voice and stressing particularly the terms with which they had sanctified him, calling him “sacrosanct”, “inviolate”, “father of his country”, “benefactor”, or “leader”, as they had done in no other case….

    “And you”, he said, “were also the only man to avenge the violence offered to your country 300 years ago, by bringing to their knees the savage peoples who were the only ones ever to break in to Rome and set fire to it.”

    In this inspired frenzy he said much else, altering his voice from clarion-clear to dirge-like, grieving for Caesar as for a friend who had suffered injustice, weeping, and vowing that he desired to give his life for Caesar’s. Then, swept very easily on to passionate emotion, he stripped the clothes from Caesar’s body, raised them on a pole and waved them about, rent as they were by the stabs and befouled with the dictator’s blood. At this the people, like a chorus, joined him in the most sorrowful lamentation and after this expression of emotion were again filled with anger. …

    When the crowd were in this state, and near to violence, someone raised above the bier a wax effigy of Caesar – the body itself, lying on its back on the bier, not being visible. The effigy was turned in every direction, by a mechanical device, and twenty-three wounds could be seen, savagely inflicted on every part of the body and on the face. This sight seemed so pitiful to the people that they could bear it no longer. Howling and lamenting, they surrounded the senate-house, where Caesar had been killed, and burnt it down, and hurried about hunting for the murderers, who had slipped away some time previously.

  8. It’s such bullshit. Giving a racially specific exemption to the lockdown just took all the credibility away from it. It’s hard to respect people who disagree with you if they make it clear that they don’t even believe what they’re saying. Literally all they had to do was enforce the law

    O/T: there’s an increasing trend with Blacks to counter the high Black maternal mortality rate by…encouraging Black women to eschew all healthcare during childbirth. The hospitals are what done it, you see.

    And yes, there’s a tendency to treat pregnant women as incubators, but instead of addressing it, they’re just withdrawing. And yes, these doulas are the sorts who can’t acknowledge that only women give birth, or that vaccines save lives, so we’re not talking the bestest and brightest here. And yes, women – including doulas – are dying.

    I have a better idea than Steve.

    Wherever the wealthy lefties bury their dead in Masdison, whichever cemeteries the well-heeled left uses (top 2 anyway), should be partnered with a non-profit called”Equal Rest, Equal Peace”. The non-profit, with BLM-corporate/Soros dollars, would buy plots for all black murder victims at the wealthy people’s cemteteries. That way their systemically discriminated-against deprived lives would not be Ralph-Waldo-Emerson invisible in the afterlife. The headstones Soros would commission would be in black favored commemorative shapes (a stone pair of 6-feet tall Michael Jordan replica shoes, giant blocks of the consonants “BLM”, available in Times New Roman or Calligraphy, a sillouette of the deceased’s favorite handgun, stripper, or hub caps). When shootings occur in these cemeteries, whitey (notice the lowercase ‘w’ whiteBoy?, will be forced to confront the oppression he foments every day. If any whites get hit by stray bullets……….eggs and omelettes, etc.

    Yucutan is about the most orderly of Mexican provinces, with a homicide rate just north of 2 per 100,000 (Southern Mexico is generally a great deal quieter than the more affluent north and a great deal more quiet than Guatemala). We've had a co-worker who owned property there and a shirt-tail who vacationed there. They loved it.

    Puerto Rico is the most affluent Latin American territory. It's also wretchedly crime-ridden, with a homicide rate as bad as Brazil's. It also has the occidental world's most dysfunctional labor market. The employment-to-population ratio for a normal western country is 0.60. Puerto Rico's is 0.35. You see ratios like that in a selection of Arab countries; pretty well unknown anywhere else.

    @Bardon Kaldian

    I'm inclined to share your sentiments but woundings are a huge burden on the medical system and leave a lot of young blacks disabled and in need of rehabilitation, which they expect whitey to provide. Even killings aren't without a cost to the white community. Black women prefer the most violent black men as sexual partners (baby daddies), which means an even more violent black population in a generation, which in the black community may be 15-18 years. Battle of the Somme level casualties might solve this problem but blacks lack the spirit and oganizational ability to sustain such an effort.

    The best solution would be a national racial divorce, but geography and existing racial mixing are probaby insuperable problems.

  34. Sailer’s suggestion may have been tongue in cheek but I did complain in my local newspaper about this issue a couple of years ago when a young BM was shot to death on the street in what passes for our ‘downtown’. His friends and family wanted to hold a memorial service not in their community but at the scene where his body was found, i.e. in front of local businesses that had no connection to the dead BM. I objected since the killers were still at large and the ‘memorial’ might just lure them to return and finish whatever ‘business” was not completed by the initial shooting. Evidently, this same concern is why the friends and family were not keen on having the memorial in their own neighborhood.

    It takes great precision to fire 63 shots among hundreds of people without killing anyone.

    I remember a column by Ann Coulter a year or so ago where she pretty bluntly stated that shooting incidents involving lots of ammunition fired and few if any hits/kills — the shooter(s) are not White.

    Part of our ‘privilege’, I guess …

    I confess, in my old age i've lost interest in saving "the world". Shoot away.

    What's important is that people who don't want to be part of it--which includes pretty much all white people, pretty much all non-black people--not get hit by the strays.

    So again ... separate nations. The poor oppressed blacks who like this stuff should be in the Rainbow/Utopia nation with folks like Corny. Me and my peeps will live in traditional deplorable America and will no longer be oppressing you. Win-win.

    But this event took place in a local park in a predominantly white, affluent part of a college town. You know, the kind of neighborhood with all of those yard signs that say "No matter where you are from, we're glad you're our neighbor" in Spanish, English and Arabic and "In this house, we believe Black lives matter, womens (sic) rights are human rights, no human is illegal, science is real, love is love, kindness is everything."

    Oh heck, never mind, you are right in asking why we should even care what happens there.

    Hollywood loves their black people. They should do the right thing and send in replacement actors as attendees at these funerals. What better way to support the poor victimized black families. Jurnee Smollett could build them a nice table as well.

    If I sell enough copies that they’ll let me write another book, this might be it.
     

    Why not open up petitions for joining the Union? In the 19th century the Yucatan petition passed the House, with the President's support but it failed in the Senate. I'm guessing this is outside the scope of your book...

    Yucutan is about the most orderly of Mexican provinces, with a homicide rate just north of 2 per 100,000 (Southern Mexico is generally a great deal quieter than the more affluent north and a great deal more quiet than Guatemala). We’ve had a co-worker who owned property there and a shirt-tail who vacationed there. They loved it.

    Puerto Rico is the most affluent Latin American territory. It’s also wretchedly crime-ridden, with a homicide rate as bad as Brazil’s. It also has the occidental world’s most dysfunctional labor market. The employment-to-population ratio for a normal western country is 0.60. Puerto Rico’s is 0.35. You see ratios like that in a selection of Arab countries; pretty well unknown anywhere else.

  43. The predisposition of many young blacks to commit random acts of violence is really quite breathtaking. The concept of consequences, or even thinking things through, is apparently not a thing for young folks in the black community. John Derbyshire hit the nail on the head when he advised of avoiding groups of young black men. https://www.takimag.com/article/the_talk_nonblack_version_john_derbyshire/#axzz1rKpfQ8ie

    President Polk not only pushed Yucatecan statehood, and got the House to agree. He was even more determined to annex Cuba. Cuba!

    Those despicable Yankees spoiled his plans. Dixie still hasn’t forgiven them.

    How to Cut Down on Black-On-Black Shootings:
     
    But, but.....why would anyone want to do this?

    Replies: @Diversity Heretic

    I’m inclined to share your sentiments but woundings are a huge burden on the medical system and leave a lot of young blacks disabled and in need of rehabilitation, which they expect whitey to provide. Even killings aren’t without a cost to the white community. Black women prefer the most violent black men as sexual partners (baby daddies), which means an even more violent black population in a generation, which in the black community may be 15-18 years. Battle of the Somme level casualties might solve this problem but blacks lack the spirit and oganizational ability to sustain such an effort.

    The best solution would be a national racial divorce, but geography and existing racial mixing are probaby insuperable problems.
