From CBS News in Minneapolis:

Winston Boogie Smith, 32, ID’d As Man Fatally Shot By Law Enforcement In Uptown Minneapolis

I didn’t recall that was his middle name, but I just checked my high school paperback copy of 1984, and that’s what it says:

It was a bright hot day in June, and the clocks were striking two P.M. Winston Boogie Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Cup Foods, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him.

His name has always been Winston Boogie Smith.

Back to CBS Minneapolis:

BCA Identifies Agencies Involved, Says There’s No Body Cam Or Squad Footage
By WCCO-TV StaffJune 4, 2021 at 3:00 pm

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has identified the local agencies involved after a U.S. Marshals task force killed a man they were trying to arrest Thursday in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. WCCO has now learned that the man killed was 32-year-old Winston Boogie Smith.

The deadly encounter happened at about 2:10 p.m. Thursday at a parking ramp off Lake Street between Fremont and Hennepin avenues. There, Marshals Service officials say the man fatally shot was wanted “on a state arrest warrant” for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Task force members, in several vehicles, confronted the man in the ramp, who was sitting with a woman in a parked car. The man wouldn’t surrender and pulled out a gun, officials say, resulting in multiple task force members opening fire.

… BCA says evidence indicates Smith fired his weapon from inside the car and a handgun was recovered at the scene. Spent cartridge cases were also found inside the driver’s compartment.

Smith died despite life-saving measures performed at the scene. His 27-year-old passenger was hurt by flying glass and was treated at Hennepin County Medical Center for her injuries.

My vague impression is that cops are more accurate shooters than in generations past. Almost all the BLM Era shootings, other than Breonna Taylor, seem to involve the cops shooting the guy they are aiming at rather than somebody else.

… According to information WCCO has gathered, Smith was convicted of aggravated robbery in 2017, received a stayed prison sentence and was put on probation. Smith also had a felony conviction out of Ramsey County for firearm possession in which he failed to appear for sentencing on May 19. As a result this warrant for his arrest was issued.

To end the scourge of Gun Violence, the Biden Administration must outlaw all gun control laws, or at least make them not apply to Blacks.

Seriously, this case is very similar to the last riot-provoking police shooting in Minneapolis: Daunte Wright was wanted on an open warrant for violating gun control laws.

Eventually, Joe Biden is going to declare that, because black criminals keep getting shot for violating gun control laws, we’re just going to have to decriminalize criminals owning guns. In the future, it will only be illegal for law-abiding citizens to have a gun.

… a crowd returned just after 9:15 p.m., soon after investigators left the scene and reopened Lake Street to traffic. People pulled down crime scene tape, and then dragged a dumpster into the middle of the busy thoroughfare and set it on fire.

Some businesses along Lake Street were looted and vandalized during the night.

The owner of Hennepin Lake Liquor said he watched looters try and break into his store on his security camera, but police responded quickly and made arrests. Last year, he said his business suffered a million dollars in damages following the unrest after George Floyd’s murder.

Your scenario isn't beyond the realm of possibility. Crump and his ilk know these guys are criminal lowlifes who aren't going to go too long without an interaction with law enforcement.

    More likely than not, given that this is the FBI's time-tested method of generating Arab "terrorists" and, more recently, "domestic terrorists."

    It's known that the FBI "most wanted list" was Hoover's PR stunt, where criminals would be added just before their capture, providing the agency with its "always gets its man" image. That's why Whitey Bolger and Osama bin Laden never appeared until just before their capture (or "capture" is Osama's case)

    I'm beginning to wonder if the FBI orchestrated the 1930s bank robberies that brought it to prominence in the first place.

    I doubt there is anything as precisely organized and specifically groomed as all that. There are a lot of sullen, resentful lowlifes around. The cops have to deal with them every single day. And the entire country—indeed, the entire world—is under a 24/7 bombardment of "anti-white, anti-police rage propaganda" encouraging black truculence, and then serving as a ready-made narrative sympathetic to and vindicative of the black criminal.

    In short, I don't think there is a "ghetto version of MK Ultra" (as Sick 'n Tired put it), though that is very funny label. The only conspiracy is the Media Industrial Complex conspiracy to change the narrative so the black is always innocent and the white always guilty. Belligerent arrest-resistors have been a dime a dozen for decades. Their use as a media weapon against normal people is new though.

    No prison time for aggravated robbery
     
    One in three adult black male is a felon. But only half of those have served prison time, one in six.

    (By the way, as a white California native in his sixties, none of my family, friends, or workmates has ever been a felon, and I don't know that I've ever even knowingly met a felon. My old roommate, an accountant, got arrested for DUI once, however.)

    Most black felons are convicted of something violent, if you include resisting arrest or weapons. The claim that they are often just nabbed for chickenshit drug charges is a myth. Also, 98 percent of cases end with a plea bargain, and the pattern there is to shave off the most serious charge in exchange for a guilty plea to the sevond most serious charge, so criminal databases don't accurately indicate the degree and pervasiveness of black violence.

  8. Also Minneapolis is an interesting case study perhaps because it has been so successful.

    The highest trust and lowest corruption societies lay in northwest Europe, particularly Scandinavian, Dutch, and western German peoples. The English count too although they tended to be leavened by more clannish Celtic influences. These were places where socialism could work because individuals could cooperate and delay gratification and still be productive. Minnesota and Wisconsin could vote Democrat forever (or in the former, Democrat-Farmer-Laborer) but their cities weren’t grounded by corruption and machine politics. At least not as overtly as in Chicago or East Coast.

    But open societies are the easiest marks for grifters. Generous social benefits, good schools, refusal to stereotype—Minnesotans are reaping the benefits of being successful, and have no defense against the social justice speak because they assume everyone acts in good faith.

    I should note that “outstate” Minnesota, while traditionally pro labor, hasn’t participated in the leftist turn and is tending toward Trump. The good city folk who head to their lake cabins every summer bemoan the Deplorables who live around them. I haven’t heard that polite set decry the urban violence in their cities, not yet at least

    You do realize that the countryside everywhere hates the Democrats*. You probably should also realize that more educated whites born after circa 1970 are now foaming at the mouth communists wherever they dwell (it's scary how elite whites everywhere think, talk, and act the same). I don't think the regions of America are culturally homogeneous anymore, they've been replaced by class identity and anatagonisms(before circa 1970 local elites didn't have contempt for the proles they were supposed to be guarding).

    Also, most Minnesota whites are not airheads. Blue collar whites and older whites detest the invasion of welfare scamming Somalis.

    *White New England remains the most monolithically Democrat region (in other regions, whites esp. in the hinterlands have been trending away from the Democrats since the late 60's). Keep in mind that the Great Lakes states have had sizable black population for decades, a big reason these states are not as liberal as they once were. As Unz has studied, blacks are the single biggest reason whites stop voting Democrat. California has become more Leftist as glowering blacks were swamped away by stoic Central Americans. I suspect that the rising population of blacks in the Midwest will lead to the region increasingly allying with the South (furthermore, Midwestern blacks are even worse than their ethnic norm anyway).

    “Winston” was Lennon’s middle name, although he changed it before he died to “Ono”, which kind of sums up the decline of Western Civilization in one fell swoop.

    In the UK, if you don’t pay your parking ticket then eventually a bailiff* will tow away your car. They’ll sell your car and use the balance to pay off your parking ticket. (This rarely actually happens; most people pay up before the car gets towed.)

    "Gun guys" may be right but only in a highly selective sense.

    Almost no "citizens" shoot at anyone at all intentionally and those who do are usually trying to shoot either an unarmed victim (being a criminal shooter) or at times, some attacker who is close to them.

    Law enforcement on the other hand, gets called out for every crazy out there who's endangering others, driving crazy, trying to rob/kill someone in the open (hence a 911 call) or being sought for arrest for a crime they are evading. So cops go looking for trouble while Joe Average gun range guy doesn't. At most he's hunting game or having some fun bang-bang. Or practicing.

    Gun guys don't shoot at anyone in a crowd or in a dynamic situation with others shooting back.

    This isn't to say the average cop is a good pistol shot. That's hard to achieve. Plus they shoot to kill and empty their magazine. Often they are shooting back at criminals shooting at them. You try that and see how you do.

    Go to one of those action courses where you are trained/tested to shoot like military or cops. See how many bystander targets you hit. Report back.

    Also Minneapolis is an interesting case study perhaps because it has been so successful.

    The highest trust and lowest corruption societies lay in northwest Europe, particularly Scandinavian, Dutch, and western German peoples. The English count too although they tended to be leavened by more clannish Celtic influences. These were places where socialism could work because individuals could cooperate and delay gratification and still be productive. Minnesota and Wisconsin could vote Democrat forever (or in the former, Democrat-Farmer-Laborer) but their cities weren’t grounded by corruption and machine politics. At least not as overtly as in Chicago or East Coast.

    But open societies are the easiest marks for grifters. Generous social benefits, good schools, refusal to stereotype—Minnesotans are reaping the benefits of being successful, and have no defense against the social justice speak because they assume everyone acts in good faith.

    I should note that “outstate” Minnesota, while traditionally pro labor, hasn’t participated in the leftist turn and is tending toward Trump.

    I immediately thought of "Dr. Winston O'Boogie" which was an alias that John Lennon used to use on occasion in the 70s, both in real life and on credits for some records that he appeared on--including some of his pal Harry Nillson's, as well as when he did backing vocals and guitar on Elton John's cover of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".

    "Winston" was Lennon's middle name, although he changed it before he died to "Ono", which kind of sums up the decline of Western Civilization in one fell swoop.

    The Republicans used to be divided roughly evenly between Western libertarians and Eastern centrists. Then after circa 1970 the Religious Right became increasingly dominant and alienated the Northeast. The centrist Republican is now essentially extinct, and most New England Yankees detest the troglodytes to the West and South whether they are strongly libertarian (Western states), socially conservative (South and lower class Midwest), or advocates of crypto pro-white ID politics (South and increasingly Midwest these days).

    Interestingly, Trump used to self ID as a "Rockefeller Republican" but he latched onto crypto ID politics and anti globalist memes to win over a good chunk of the Midwest. Then again, Trump was too German to ever get fully accepted into the Atlantic elite (a huge reason for the hatred of Trump is that the dominant WASP-Jewish aristocracy hates gentile Germans, thus the nagging about his "bad manners", and his "tone"). To the pro-Trump Germanic Midwesterner, his election was as Micheal Moore so vividly described, the biggest F#$& You in history....To the decadent WASP-Jew aristocracy.

    What you are mentioning is a real problem.

    I recall a white man in Georgia sentenced to 20 years in prison for pulling a gun on a bunch of rowdy blacks. No shooting. Just pointed the gun at them.

    If it had been the reverse, a black man pulling a gun on a crowd of rowdy whites, can one imagine that he would be sentenced to prison for twenty years?

    You do realize that the countryside everywhere hates the Democrats*. You probably should also realize that more educated whites born after circa 1970 are now foaming at the mouth communists wherever they dwell (it's scary how elite whites everywhere think, talk, and act the same). I don't think the regions of America are culturally homogeneous anymore, they've been replaced by class identity and anatagonisms(before circa 1970 local elites didn't have contempt for the proles they were supposed to be guarding).

    Also, most Minnesota whites are not airheads. Blue collar whites and older whites detest the invasion of welfare scamming Somalis.

    *White New England remains the most monolithically Democrat region (in other regions, whites esp. in the hinterlands have been trending away from the Democrats since the late 60's). Keep in mind that the Great Lakes states have had sizable black population for decades, a big reason these states are not as liberal as they once were. As Unz has studied, blacks are the single biggest reason whites stop voting Democrat. California has become more Leftist as glowering blacks were swamped away by stoic Central Americans. I suspect that the rising population of blacks in the Midwest will lead to the region increasingly allying with the South (furthermore, Midwestern blacks are even worse than their ethnic norm anyway).

    Because actually locking up criminals is considered racist due to the criminal's skin color. Never mind the fact that they were actually caught commiting violent crimes. Take the homeless black man who randomly punched the old Asian lady in the face on camera in front of a bunch of witnesses. He had been arrested 8 times already this year, and had over 40 various arrests over the years. He is out again walking the streets because of bleeding heart shitbags that think he can be magically rehabilitated.

    That homeless black man is large and in charge. You saw the video. He gave orders, and the asian and White guys around him obeyed. He might be homeless and crazy, but he knows whose the boss. And its not Tony Danza.

    Having a black elite means racial solidarity with the lowest of the scumbag low. Including homeless crazy lunatics. This is not going to get better. Only worse. Eventually every black person in America will have the right to deal out violence to non blacks for any reason at all.

    Also Minneapolis is an interesting case study perhaps because it has been so successful.

    The highest trust and lowest corruption societies lay in northwest Europe, particularly Scandinavian, Dutch, and western German peoples. The English count too although they tended to be leavened by more clannish Celtic influences. These were places where socialism could work because individuals could cooperate and delay gratification and still be productive. Minnesota and Wisconsin could vote Democrat forever (or in the former, Democrat-Farmer-Laborer) but their cities weren’t grounded by corruption and machine politics. At least not as overtly as in Chicago or East Coast.

    But open societies are the easiest marks for grifters. Generous social benefits, good schools, refusal to stereotype—Minnesotans are reaping the benefits of being successful, and have no defense against the social justice speak because they assume everyone acts in good faith.

    I should note that “outstate” Minnesota, while traditionally pro labor, hasn’t participated in the leftist turn and is tending toward Trump. The good city folk who head to their lake cabins every summer bemoan the Deplorables who live around them. I haven’t heard that polite set decry the urban violence in their cities, not yet at least

    Most black felons are convicted of something violent, if you include resisting arrest or weapons. The claim that they are often just nabbed for chickenshit drug charges is a myth. Also, 98 percent of cases end with a plea bargain, and the pattern there is to shave off the most serious charge in exchange for a guilty plea to the sevond most serious charge, so criminal databases don't accurately indicate the degree and pervasiveness of black violence.

Hard to imagine how the chips would have fallen in the alternative scenario, ruthlessly putting down the, frankly, very scattered urban riots. About 90% of U.S. cities would experience no changes and be completely untouched either way, assuming as I do that the insurgency did not have sufficient legs to "spread to the suburbs" as they bragged, but at least then we could've estimated the comprehensive fighting strength of the Soros/Rezko-backed irregulars. "We fight them over there so we don't have to fight them here, in the suburbs"-- I dunno, coulda been another Iraq-style quagmire. Media would serve up Kent State cosplay every day.

    Criminals get guns by stealing them or buying them off of people who stole them. Or by getting their girl-friends or cousins who don't (or at least don't yet) have criminal records to buy guns for them - which is itself illegal.

    Exactly what was Mr Smith doing in the parking ramp that triggered the police? Perhaps he was going to rob the liquor store. Or maybe he intended to treat his lady friend to a drink at Hammer & Sickle (I told you it was trendy), or to services at Planned Parenthood, both a block to the north.

    The owner of Hennepin Lake Liquor said he watched looters try and break into his store… Last year, he said his business suffered a million dollars in damages following the unrest after George Floyd’s murder.

    Eventually, Joe Biden is going to declare that, because black criminals keep getting shot for violating gun control laws, we’re just going to have to decriminalize criminals owning guns. In the future, it will only be illegal for law-abiding citizens to have a gun.
     
    In fact the current situation is that only law abiding citizens are allowed to have guns, and it is a crime for felons to be in possession of a gun. At least that is how it is in at least one state.

    However the law abiding gun owners, gun manufacturers, gun importers, and gun retailers are doing a piss-poor job of keeping guns out of the hands of gangsters and criminals.

    There are more controls on the sale of insulin syringes than on guns.

    I was once prescribed a course of vitamin B-12 injections that I had to administer myself. When I picked up the prescription from the Walmart pharmacy, I said "What about the needles and syringes?". And the pharmacist said "oh no we can't sell you that!" (But I was able to get them later by mail order from another source.) However if I had requested to purchase a gun to kill myself, that would have been just fine with Walmart.

    I gather from your perfect ignoramce that you’ve purchased syringes, but not guns. Does your Walmart even carry guns? Why not? And did your syringe purchase require a background check, a waiting period, and a licence fee?

    You do realize that the countryside everywhere hates the Democrats*. You probably should also realize that more educated whites born after circa 1970 are now foaming at the mouth communists wherever they dwell (it's scary how elite whites everywhere think, talk, and act the same). I don't think the regions of America are culturally homogeneous anymore, they've been replaced by class identity and anatagonisms(before circa 1970 local elites didn't have contempt for the proles they were supposed to be guarding).

    Also, most Minnesota whites are not airheads. Blue collar whites and older whites detest the invasion of welfare scamming Somalis.

    *White New England remains the most monolithically Democrat region (in other regions, whites esp. in the hinterlands have been trending away from the Democrats since the late 60's). Keep in mind that the Great Lakes states have had sizable black population for decades, a big reason these states are not as liberal as they once were. As Unz has studied, blacks are the single biggest reason whites stop voting Democrat. California has become more Leftist as glowering blacks were swamped away by stoic Central Americans. I suspect that the rising population of blacks in the Midwest will lead to the region increasingly allying with the South (furthermore, Midwestern blacks are even worse than their ethnic norm anyway).

    Barr made the call to save the church (preventing American version of Notre Dame). Then he made sure people saw him walking the beat with Milley. Did he orchestrate the whole thing the following day? It was outstanding which can be seen by the immediate, visceral, vicious response.

    Then Milley almost immediately flipped and Barr not that long after. Maybe Trump was furious about the blowback instead of getting why it was important in the first place?

    Trump waving the bible at St. John’s Church stands out as another Inflection Point That Wasn’t. Hard to imagine how the chips would have fallen in the alternative scenario, ruthlessly putting down the, frankly, very scattered urban riots. About 90% of U.S. cities would experience no changes and be completely untouched either way, assuming as I do that the insurgency did not have sufficient legs to “spread to the suburbs” as they bragged, but at least then we could’ve estimated the comprehensive fighting strength of the Soros/Rezko-backed irregulars. “We fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here, in the suburbs”– I dunno, coulda been another Iraq-style quagmire. Media would serve up Kent State cosplay every day.

    However, establishing empirically that our major activist-held cities were unsalvageable would have still had some value then, leading up to the election. You hate to find these things out right after they’ve squeezed in the new guy.

    I doubt there is anything as precisely organized and specifically groomed as all that. There are a lot of sullen, resentful lowlifes around. The cops have to deal with them every single day. And the entire country—indeed, the entire world—is under a 24/7 bombardment of “anti-white, anti-police rage propaganda” encouraging black truculence, and then serving as a ready-made narrative sympathetic to and vindicative of the black criminal.

    In short, I don’t think there is a “ghetto version of MK Ultra” (as Sick ‘n Tired put it), though that is very funny label. The only conspiracy is the Media Industrial Complex conspiracy to change the narrative so the black is always innocent and the white always guilty. Belligerent arrest-resistors have been a dime a dozen for decades. Their use as a media weapon against normal people is new though.

    The problem I have with mass (key word) conspiracies is that they let the populace off the hook. They also don't take into account how rapidly and organically things change. An idea or movement (meme) can accelerate out of nowhere (e.g. a bunch of people in 1968 suddenly doing LSD) but then disappear almost as fast once people get sick of it. There are sometimes attempts among key figures to pull certain things off, but overall I think the general organic social mood explains most stuff.

    I also think that prosaically explaining things away just bores many people. It doesn't sell well.

    the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis...

    The deadly encounter happened at about 2:10 p.m. Thursday at a parking ramp off Lake Street between Fremont and Hennepin avenues.
     
    Uptown, south of downtown, is the nicer, trendier end of Lake Street, as it approaches Lake Calhoun Bde Maka Ska. There is more to loot.

    Exactly what was Mr Smith doing in the parking ramp that triggered the police? Perhaps he was going to rob the liquor store. Or maybe he intended to treat his lady friend to a drink at Hammer & Sickle (I told you it was trendy), or to services at Planned Parenthood, both a block to the north.

    The owner of Hennepin Lake Liquor said he watched looters try and break into his store... Last year, he said his business suffered a million dollars in damages following the unrest after George Floyd’s murder.

     

    How'd the nearby Apple Store fare? Oh...


    Apple Uptown in Minneapolis has permanently closed

    "Apple said its decision to close the store was already in the works prior to COVID-19 shutdowns, but the pandemic and protest damage accelerated the timeline."

    Among "gun guys", cops are widely regarded as horrible shots and dangerous to anyone downrange of them.

    “Gun guys” may be right but only in a highly selective sense.

    Almost no “citizens” shoot at anyone at all intentionally and those who do are usually trying to shoot either an unarmed victim (being a criminal shooter) or at times, some attacker who is close to them.

    Law enforcement on the other hand, gets called out for every crazy out there who’s endangering others, driving crazy, trying to rob/kill someone in the open (hence a 911 call) or being sought for arrest for a crime they are evading. So cops go looking for trouble while Joe Average gun range guy doesn’t. At most he’s hunting game or having some fun bang-bang. Or practicing.

    Gun guys don’t shoot at anyone in a crowd or in a dynamic situation with others shooting back.

    This isn’t to say the average cop is a good pistol shot. That’s hard to achieve. Plus they shoot to kill and empty their magazine. Often they are shooting back at criminals shooting at them. You try that and see how you do.

    Go to one of those action courses where you are trained/tested to shoot like military or cops. See how many bystander targets you hit. Report back.

    Even now, in the US most cops go through their career without being in a gun fight or even firing a shot off of the range.

    Gun guys don’t shoot at anyone in a crowd or in a dynamic situation with others shooting back.

    You don't know that.

    US cops are often janitors. They arrive on a scene after the fact and start collecting stuff off of the ground. IF they arrive when people are still trying to do things to each other, it's not at all obvious who started what, etc. This is a big reason why it is routine to detain everyone in the situation. Once everyone is sitting in the back of a cruiser, maybe with handcuffs on, then questions can be asked. Examples can be seen in episodes of "First 48".

    This is also why it is important to just shut up and obey orders in that situation. Since the cops do not know who is whom, it's a good plan to act like the "good citizen" and not like the "dirtbag" in order to avoid a negative outcome.

    Joe or Jane Civvie, on the other hand, is very likely to know who the bad guys are, and so if they are equipped to shoot they are more likely to shoot the guy attempting to carjack them / rob them at the ATM / break down the back door and enter the house / etc.

    This isn’t to say the average cop is a good pistol shot. That’s hard to achieve.

    Simplistic nonsense. It is not difficult to become a good pistol shot, nor is it difficult to maintain skill levels. It does require time, persistence and dedication. Not everyone has those things.

    Plus they shoot to kill and empty their magazine.

    You are ignorant, and should watch fewer TV dramas.

    Often they are shooting back at criminals shooting at them. You try that and see how you do.

    That's an emotional statement. Not much semantic content. Meh.

    Go to one of those action courses where you are trained/tested to shoot like military or cops.

    The Rules of Engagement for US police are not at all like ROE for US military. Again, you are ignorant.

    Criminals get guns by stealing them or buying them off of people who stole them. Or by getting their girl-friends or cousins who don’t (or at least don’t yet) have criminal records to buy guns for them – which is itself illegal.

    "No prison time for aggravated robbery." And no jail time, either, apparently, only probation, the rules of which he violated, of course. Virtually all black males in state and federal prisons are violent recidivists. Violent black males indicted for drug trafficking are usually allowed to plead guilty to drug possession. Thus, officially, they're classified as nonviolent offenders. And thus blacks and white leftists can claim that are prisons are full of nonviolent black male drug offenders, victims of "systemic racism."

    What you are mentioning is a real problem.

    I recall a white man in Georgia sentenced to 20 years in prison for pulling a gun on a bunch of rowdy blacks. No shooting. Just pointed the gun at them.

    If it had been the reverse, a black man pulling a gun on a crowd of rowdy whites, can one imagine that he would be sentenced to prison for twenty years?

    Criminal injustice system indeed.

    Among “gun guys”, cops are widely regarded as horrible shots and dangerous to anyone downrange of them.

    In the early ’00’s citizens had a “shooting the wrong person” rate of about 3%. Cops shot the wrong person around 12% of the time.
     
    "Gun guys" may be right but only in a highly selective sense.

    Almost no "citizens" shoot at anyone at all intentionally and those who do are usually trying to shoot either an unarmed victim (being a criminal shooter) or at times, some attacker who is close to them.

    Law enforcement on the other hand, gets called out for every crazy out there who's endangering others, driving crazy, trying to rob/kill someone in the open (hence a 911 call) or being sought for arrest for a crime they are evading. So cops go looking for trouble while Joe Average gun range guy doesn't. At most he's hunting game or having some fun bang-bang. Or practicing.

    Gun guys don't shoot at anyone in a crowd or in a dynamic situation with others shooting back.

    This isn't to say the average cop is a good pistol shot. That's hard to achieve. Plus they shoot to kill and empty their magazine. Often they are shooting back at criminals shooting at them. You try that and see how you do.

    Go to one of those action courses where you are trained/tested to shoot like military or cops. See how many bystander targets you hit. Report back.

    Gun guys don’t shoot at anyone in a crowd or in a dynamic situation with others shooting back.

    You don’t know that.

    US cops are often janitors. They arrive on a scene after the fact and start collecting stuff off of the ground. IF they arrive when people are still trying to do things to each other, it’s not at all obvious who started what, etc. This is a big reason why it is routine to detain everyone in the situation. Once everyone is sitting in the back of a cruiser, maybe with handcuffs on, then questions can be asked. Examples can be seen in episodes of “First 48”.

    This is also why it is important to just shut up and obey orders in that situation. Since the cops do not know who is whom, it’s a good plan to act like the “good citizen” and not like the “dirtbag” in order to avoid a negative outcome.

    Joe or Jane Civvie, on the other hand, is very likely to know who the bad guys are, and so if they are equipped to shoot they are more likely to shoot the guy attempting to carjack them / rob them at the ATM / break down the back door and enter the house / etc.

    This isn’t to say the average cop is a good pistol shot. That’s hard to achieve.

    Simplistic nonsense. It is not difficult to become a good pistol shot, nor is it difficult to maintain skill levels. It does require time, persistence and dedication. Not everyone has those things.

    Exactly what was Mr Smith doing in the parking ramp that triggered the police? Perhaps he was going to rob the liquor store. Or maybe he intended to treat his lady friend to a drink at Hammer & Sickle (I told you it was trendy), or to services at Planned Parenthood, both a block to the north.

    The problem I have with mass (key word) conspiracies is that they let the populace off the hook. They also don't take into account how rapidly and organically things change. An idea or movement (meme) can accelerate out of nowhere (e.g. a bunch of people in 1968 suddenly doing LSD) but then disappear almost as fast once people get sick of it. There are sometimes attempts among key figures to pull certain things off, but overall I think the general organic social mood explains most stuff.

    I also think that prosaically explaining things away just bores many people. It doesn't sell well.

    There were attempts in the 70's to normalize gays but most people didn't buy it. That changed in the 90's, which can mostly be put down to declining respect for religion. The goofball Evangelicals began to dominate Xtianity, growing stronger as America got weaker, normies deserted the Mainline Protestant denominations, the Catholic Church was battered by sex abuse allegations even though sex crimes went thru the roof everywhere in the 70's and 80's because of the 60's generation.

    These people you describe preyed on a vulnerable population.

    Additionally, one thing that's often overlooked is that the worst excesses of circa 1968-1992 paradoxically made normies conservative. In the mid-late 90's people calmed down and stopped being as violent and promiscuous as they were during the behavioral "1960's" (roughly 1968-1992). Once people calmed down, they weren't as afraid anymore of criminals and perverts, because fewer of these people were running loose. See also the the GOP winning almost every general election from 1968-1988, a time when much of America was damn near dystopian in it's social chaos.

    "No prison time for aggravated robbery." And no jail time, either, apparently, only probation, the rules of which he violated, of course. Virtually all black males in state and federal prisons are violent recidivists. Violent black males indicted for drug trafficking are usually allowed to plead guilty to drug possession. Thus, officially, they're classified as nonviolent offenders. And thus blacks and white leftists can claim that are prisons are full of nonviolent black male drug offenders, victims of "systemic racism."

    Not nearly enough violent black males are in state and federal prisons -a reality confirmed by the anarchy and mayhem and warfare in Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, Minneapolis, ad nauseam. All things considered, especially the nature of their crimes and criminal records, black males are the most indugled, by far. of all riminals.

    Eventually, Joe Biden is going to declare that, because black criminals keep getting shot for violating gun control laws, we’re just going to have to decriminalize criminals owning guns. In the future, it will only be illegal for law-abiding citizens to have a gun.
     
    In fact the current situation is that only law abiding citizens are allowed to have guns, and it is a crime for felons to be in possession of a gun. At least that is how it is in at least one state.

    However the law abiding gun owners, gun manufacturers, gun importers, and gun retailers are doing a piss-poor job of keeping guns out of the hands of gangsters and criminals.

    There are more controls on the sale of insulin syringes than on guns.

    I was once prescribed a course of vitamin B-12 injections that I had to administer myself. When I picked up the prescription from the Walmart pharmacy, I said "What about the needles and syringes?". And the pharmacist said "oh no we can't sell you that!"

The goofball Evangelicals began to dominate Xtianity, growing stronger as America got weaker, normies deserted the Mainline Protestant denominations, the Catholic Church was battered by sex abuse allegations even though sex crimes went thru the roof everywhere in the 70’s and 80’s because of the 60’s generation.

    These people you describe preyed on a vulnerable population.

    Additionally, one thing that’s often overlooked is that the worst excesses of circa 1968-1992 paradoxically made normies conservative. In the mid-late 90’s people calmed down and stopped being as violent and promiscuous as they were during the behavioral “1960’s” (roughly 1968-1992). Once people calmed down, they weren’t as afraid anymore of criminals and perverts, because fewer of these people were running loose. See also the the GOP winning almost every general election from 1968-1988, a time when much of America was damn near dystopian in it’s social chaos.

    Decline in religion, plus an uncomplicatedly conspiratorial legal end-run for gay marriage (instead of a campaign, people just woke up one day and discovered that some kritarch had already changed the law), after an uncomplicatedly conspiratorial effort to change the DSM (which the conspirators later boasted about to NPR). Insofar as gays used conventional advocacy instead of conspiracy (ie, normalization campaigns the 70s), they failed.

    Is this kid black? White? Mixed? His 1st name and that of his brother sounds black. Last name “Ekdahl” – pure Viking.

    What the hell is going on in Minnesota??

    And you're asking if he's black? If he were white it would either not be reported or the parents would be quoted on their knees apologizing and asking that their personal non-incident not be exploited by the Phantom Nazis.

    I think you'd be remiss to not take into account the disgust that normies had for the 60's generation as the 70's and 80's went on. Throughout the world there was massive increase in violent and sexual crime. Some of sickest crime sprees in human history happened back then. The FBI created an entire new field of criminal research dedicated to serial killers (Agent Robert Ressler coined the term "serial killer" in the 70's). Once crime began to decline in 1993, it became much easier to sell social change. And many people relaxed and basically forgot just how deranged so many people acted from circa 1968-1992 (and their behavior was often blamed on the "1960's" BTW).

    That explains the gay activist resort to conspiracy to change the DSM. But why was gay marriage in the 2000s a coup and not a campaign?

    I dunno what yer so hung up on. By the time gay marriage was legalized Americans were far less hostile to gays than they were in the 80's. The whole premise of the 70's and 80's Right was that mid-20th century liberalism had unleashed massive waves of crime, sex, obscenity, and drunken revelry. Then after 1993, America became much more socially progressive because behavior improved a lot.

    Elites are very malleable on social issues* precisely because they seldom have conviction on these things, and tend to just go along with the prevailing trends of the day. There's also a desire to just fit in.

    On economic and foreign policy issues, elites tend towards what's self-serving. If they are less arrogant, they think that meeting normies at least halfway is in everyone's best interests. More arrogant, they just write off the values of normies. Either way however, they are much less whimsical on these things compared to social issues.

    *Note how attitudes on many social issues changed rapidly from one decade to the next, from say the 1920's to the 2020's, whereas shifts regarding say supply side economics or the role of unions could take decades. For example, New Dealism on economic issues was still largely embraced by the Democrats into the 80's, a good 50 years after it started.
