From the New York Times:

Social Distancing, Without the Police
Letting members of the community enforce social distancing is the better way.

By The Editorial Board

May 18, 2020, 6:00 p.m. ET

Of the 125 people arrested over offenses that law enforcement officials described as related to the coronavirus pandemic, 113 were black or Hispanic. Of the 374 summonses from March 16 to May 5, a vast majority — 300 — were given to black and Hispanic New Yorkers.

Videos of some of the arrests are hard to watch. In one posted to Facebook last week, a group of some six police officers are seen tackling a black woman in a subway station as her young child looks on. “She’s got a baby with her!” a bystander shouts. Police officials told The Daily News the woman had refused to comply when officers directed her to put the mask she was wearing over her nose and mouth.

Contrast that with photographs across social media showing crowds of sun-seekers packed into parks in wealthy, whiter areas of the city, lounging undisturbed as police officers hand out masks. …

To prove that crowds of sun-seekers packed into parks in wealthy, whiter areas, the Editorial Board posted this photo:

Obviously, it has been impossible for photographs to misrepresent how packed parks and beaches are with sun-seekers ever since the disinvention of the telephoto lens in late 2019.

Without a significant course correction, the department’s role in the pandemic may look more and more like stop-and-frisk, the policing tactic that led to the harassment of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, most of them black and Hispanic, while rarely touching white New Yorkers. Mr. de Blasio has scoffed at the comparison, though it’s not clear why.

Aggressive police enforcement of social-distancing measures is nearly certain to harm the health and dignity of the city’s black and Hispanic residents. …

New York is facing a public health crisis, not a spike in crime. Black and Hispanic New Yorkers are already suffering disproportionately from the coronavirus. They don’t need more policing. They need more help.

    Oh my god. Just open up already. It’s over.

    Yet we learn today that NYC restaurants won’t open at all until end of June and then only with massive horseshit rules (wait staff in masks, lol!). Things won’t be “normal” until end of the year, at best.

    Insanity. Every day I wake up and wish death on the entire New York State and City “leadership.”

  3. If NAMs are suffering disproportionately from Corona, isn’t stronger law enforcement of social distancing one way of helping minority communities?

    This “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” shows up all the time. One of the main condemnations today of American society as structurally racist is bias in incarceration. However, if you go back to the 80s and 90s, the face that police weren’t exercising enough vigilance in removing the blight of drugs from minority communities was racist.

    Is that really going to work? Sure, the Democrats have the media pushing their narrative, but isn’t it obvious that they’re the ones who can’t get enough of this lock-down stuff?

    BTW, it occurs to me that whatever happens in the future, whatever new corona virus comes along, we are never going to do this again. It’s a one-shot deal.

    Of course it will “work.” What are the Trump worshippers going to do? Accept that cutting corporate taxes, not building the wall, and threatening to bomb Iran was not very popular and that’s why Trump lost? No, Trump’s loss will have to be the result of some kind of plot. Some would note that in general the popular reaction to hard times not caused by economic trouble is to “rally around the flag,” and point out that in countries like France and Britain the governments have gotten more popular. But this is a low-IQ group of people we’re talking about.

    Almost right, Whisk’. It’ll actually be more like LAST KING OF SCOTLAND . Whites will be the managerial experts whose advise will be cast off with insult, probably with such schoolyard -level invention as dog barks to drown out all that fact and logic (cf. BLACK PANTHER), and then when reality hits the conversation will go something like this:

    “Why didn’t you tell me to social distance and wash my hands and not make rap videos with 100 twerking hoochie-mamas packed into a single hot tub?”

    “But I did tell you!”

    “Ah, but you did not persuade me, Whitey McWhitePractitioner, you did not persuade me.”

  15. I find it funny that so many people are attacking the NYPD. In my neighborhood, they have never been cooler. I appreciate their presence and they are not doing much. They are not messing with people unless you are completely obnoxious. Wear a mask and they won’t mess with you. Yesterday, the cops were handing out masks for people in the parks.

    I should teach a class about how to deal with cops. It seems like most people have no idea how to deal with them. The secret for a good relationship with the NYPD is to crack a joke. They come from a “ball busting” culture. Throw out a good joke that gets them laughing and you are golden.

    • Replies: @Redneck farmer
  16. It’s just more of that anarcho-tyranny. As Dr. X noted above, the cops can’t push around black people as they can white people. White people have much more to lose, in general, if they push it enough to get thrown in jail for a night. That’s only part of the reason they will obey cops’ orders about masks, keeping apart, etc. The other part is that they are in general more law abiding, which is not always the best thing, for us or anyone.

    On that sunshine in the park picture, even with that telephoto effect, you can tell that most people are quite far apart, and I’d assume the others are family or close friends, having come together. Did that cop put on the mask for the photo? Isn’t he afraid the other cops will laugh at him for the next 2 weeks at the donut shop?

    Black and Hispanic New Yorkers are already suffering disproportionately from the coronavirus.

    Not my fault.

    They don’t need more policing. They need more help.

    Go there prontomundo and help, then, Mr. The Editorial Board.

  17. Let’s just admit that it is racist to expect black people to follow the rules. But if we don’t enforce rules and standards on blacks, we are succumbing to the soft bigotry of low expectations. Bush 43 told me so, and he was never wrong.

    Politically correct anti-racism harms “minorities”, as you aptly observed. Black Lives Matter causes many black deaths, for example by depolicing and Ferguson effect. Google #BlackLivesMatter2Racists
    Race realist policies are good for Blacks. Correct social theories lead to the best possible policies.
    But it is taboo to even think that Blacks behave unwise, badly, or worse than whites in any respect. False theories lead to absurd conclusions and bad policies. The only permissible explanation is white racism. Police hunt Blacks, to arrest them for violation of social distancing. Whites get home free, constantly violate rules without punishment.
    Any 1st semester student could do a research project: walk around and take notes as to the percentage of violations per race. Watching a pedestrian crossing already gives clear results. But, the project would get the teacher fired.

    I agree. There are more stories out about the 1969 Hong Kong Flu, with no lockdown. There are more stories about Sweden. There are more worries about the social unrest triggered by the lockdown, and better arguments from the administration (non-COVID maladies are being neglected). The wind in the media has shifted.

  20. ‘…New York is facing a public health crisis, not a spike in crime. Black and Hispanic New Yorkers are already suffering disproportionately from the coronavirus. They don’t need more policing. They need more help.’

    So…because Black-and-Hispanic New Yorkers already suffer disproportionately from the Coronavirus, they should be given greater freedom to engage in high-risk behavior?

    My, the New York Times has changed. Back in the day, I would have accused in of many things — but not driveling idiocy.

  21. @ScarletNumber

    It is racist to say “it is racist to expect that Blacks follow the rules”
    Whites are equally, or less, rule abiding as blacks. It is racist to even think otherwise.
    Politically correct logic is complex

    The specific examples I have read in the articles on this are apples and oranges. White dog walkers may not wear a mask in a park, apologize when confronted, then accept and use a mask, for example. The most egregious white example was people sitting on a pier, but without *overhead drone* photographic evidence showing distances, I don’t know how much credence to give it.

    Blacks on the other hand had a huge, rambunctious street funeral for a rapper, and a big house party that spilled into the street, no distance, no masks, and in both cases the attendees became immediately hostile and threatening when cautioned.

    There was another incident where a white or Hispanic cop slugged a black arrest-resister, and the cop was one of those guys who had multiple court verdicts against him. The incident did not seem particularly Covid related … which means they had run dry on examples after two, typical of Times “fake trend” stories.

    One thing about that Times: it’s still possible to read most articles and get information from them as long as you read to the end, closely and carefully, and pay attention to timelines, sources, and specific factual allegations, ignoring the innuendo. As of yet they can’t bring themselves to just out and out lie about facts, dates, and names.

    Wait! What? I thought the police bullying people to stay inside was supposed to be helping us. If blacks and hispanics are suffering disproportionately, wouldn’t that mean there should be more police oppression of their freedom to save them?

    The Editorial Board needs to improve its use of written English. The editorial is built around a vague and tired word, community. To get four definitions, ask three people what it means.

    Fortunately, there is a fresh and vivid loan word from Turkish that describes exactly what the Board is trying to say. Millet. Membership in certain millets comes with more privilege, others have less. We see this system in action, and, the Times wishes to assure us, that is the correct moral order.

    Well, that will depend. The next time the financial system seizes and needs a bailout, how will they justify ramming it through Congress on a voice vote in the House with NO opposition permitted? (They nearly didn’t get the needed bailout in 2008 when the House, responding to popular demand, initially voted down the bailout. This time, people begged for it.) Next time, instead of economic violence against the young and poor, expect actual physical violence. The martial law declared to stop that will, conveniently, include a bailout for the usury-based banking system.

    False equivalency, since ignorant black rednecks, who are clearly overrepresented in the American black population, are repulsed by reading in general, books in particular, and especially internet comments sections discussing the validity of assorted statistical analysis of the Wuhan virus.

    We should instead admit that “racist” is yiddish for “white” and we should stop caring about the label. It’s nothing more than a slur against whites who don’t hate themselves and don’t submit to the DIE dogma. The only response to the accusation should be “so what?”
    Nonwhites don’t use the term following the dictionary definition. They use it as a tool to silence and control white behavior. Whites who take any accusation of racism on good faith are part of the problem. The more whites who understand this, the weaker the slur will be.

    Once you have contact with this flu virus, you soon develop immunity. Healthy people interacting with each other is the way all flu viruses pass.

    Maybe those supposedly low-IQ people are the smart ones after all?

    As the Chinese adherence to communist doctrine demonstrates, IQ and good judgement are, at times, puzzlingly mutually exclusive.

  68. “New York is facing a public health crisis, not a spike in crime.”

    Multiple reports have declared that NYC has been suffering a spike in crime.

    How would the police enforcing social distancing harm the health of blacks and Hispanics?

    And what’s the matter with cops handing out 80% of social distancing summonses to blacks and Hispanics? They also commit 90% of the criminal shootings in NYC.

    The NYT is so dishonest that it will never admit to its white genocide rationale, or at least, no time soon.

    They do what they always do: Just ignore the reality, and turn up the volume on the anti-white talking points/race hoaxes.

    I can’t stress how dangerous this is for our young people. We’re issuing a Cease and Desist Order and will make sure we keep our communities and our kids safe.

    The cringe of the de Blasio cuck.

    My response is usually: what is ‘racism’? Or what do you mean by racism?

    Good luck ever getting an intelligent response though. Never happens. It will either be a copy ‘n paste of a dictionary definition – which never encompasses my original thought crime. Or a feeble: “You are” or: “Look in a mirror”. Pathetic.

    It’s past time for us all to let the scales fall from our eyes. The goal of the left is to crush you and me. You personally, and me personally. They want us driven from employment and from every stage of public life. They don’t care about fairness or equal time or reasoned discourse. They want us dead and our possessions burned. It’s really that simple.

    I disagree. The powers that be know exactly the kind of people that voted for Trump, and they’re jamming it down our throats good and hard. Just like the government shutdown when BHO was president.

    Whenever you end a claim with something like, “it’s just that simple,” or “plain and simple,” it’s often not that plain and not that simple. A limited IQ limits perception, and assimilates a limited amount of information, and thus, a limited conclusion, which usually double’s back to it’s favorite theme: “dems are an organized consciousness bent on the destruction of america. repubs are heartless pricks,” etc.

    A limited brain doesn’t know any better because it can’t. Sprinkle in a little cognitive dissonance, and you have a nice little shitshow in your head, while you think everything’s just fine, and you and Don Lemon, or you and Glen Beck have it all figured out–though you don’t.

    Plain and simple.

    I saw the video of several man cops tackling the woman with a kid who looked about 5 with her. Her and the kid’s skin color was light tan Her little boy’s features and hair looked White or Hispanic.

    I was in an airport 2 weeks ago looking at passengers coming out of the passage way from plane to airport. Most had masks. 3 did not, asian Hispanic Indian something woman, black man, White man. The woman and black man were ignored. A guard ran after the White man and told him to wear a mask and directed him to a clerk who had masks for passengers.

    2 things I hate hate about flying; TSA and the fact that there are no White Americans working in airports. I don’t eat in restaurants because restaurants don’t hire White Americans. Haven’t seen a White American airport workers for decades.

    When I’m accused of racism I say “ damn right I am”. Liberals hate us. We should hate them right back.

    In Ontario, most of the workers are Somalians. In Quebec, most of the workers are Arab.

    It’s some perverse virtue signalling where they allow probably the most dangerous groups to be working the most important jobs for security.

    The NYC lockdown started March 20. A week later, Fri March 27, I walked Gunhill Road in the north Bronx from Jerome Ave to Webster Ave. The streets were crowded with Dominicans, hanging out in front of barbershops & nail joints as always in warm weather. No one but me had a mask on, I got some weird looks for my industrial P100 respirator. For comparison, white folks were panicking this week. A couple miles north the Yonkers Whole Foods was pre apocalyptic.

    2 weeks( incubation period) later the NoBro was clobbered and everyone’s abuela was in the hospital.
