Why did black traffic deaths explode immediately after George Floyd’s death? My theory is that the Establishment made clear to the police that they were to stop black bad drivers less and so blacks started driving badly more. Two years later, here’s one of the voices of the Establishment, the editorial board of the Washington Post (J. Bezos, Proprietor), making clear that no lessons have been learned.

The Washington Post editorial board editorializes:

Opinion: Police kill another Black man — and the same old questions arise

By the Editorial Board
July 6, 2022 at 5:04 p.m. EDT

Two years ago, the country reacted in disbelief and horror to the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. …

Those same questions are now being asked again after the death of another Black man who police shot more than 60 times after what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop.

Jayland Walker, 25, was killed by police in Akron, Ohio, on June 27 in an incident that sparked days of protests, prompting authorities to impose a curfew and cancel Independence Day celebrations. Police said they had tried to pull Mr. Walker over for unspecified equipment and traffic violations at 12:30 a.m. when he fled and a chase ensued.

By the way this was the second night in a row Walker had led police on a car chase. The night before he’d gotten away when he crossed a city line and the pursuing police declined to follow him further.

His family and friends say he was a decent guy — a former high school wrestler working as a deliveryman who stayed out of trouble with the law — and they speculate that his sudden descent into criminality had something to do with his girlfriend being killed in a hit-and-run car crash the month before. Apparently, he left behind on the passenger seat of his car when he ran for it a pistol, a clip, and a wedding ring.

That all sounds rather like suicide-by-cop. (E.g., shooting once in the general direction of the pursuit is enough to set the cops on edge, with minimal risk that you’ll actually hit one of them.)

Lots of white guys die by suicide-by-cop each year across this great country of ours, but very rarely does the Washington Post editorialize about it.

By the way, suicide-by-cop is an obnoxious way to go. Most cops don’t want to ever kill anybody, even when they want to be killed, so please don’t saddle some random policeman with your demise.

Another theory I’ve seen is that Walker was the Akron Dollar Store Ski Mask Robber.

About 40 seconds after the chase started, police said, a gunshot was fired from Mr. Walker’s car. After several minutes, according to police, Mr. Walker, who had no criminal record, got out of his car and ran away. Police said they deployed Tasers but couldn’t subdue him.

Tasers never work in notorious police shootings (e.g., Rayshard Brooks at the Atlanta Wendy’s and Jacob Blake in Kenosha), although presumably they sometimes work in cases we never hear about because nobody got shot with a real gun.

Seconds later, after police say Mr. Walker stopped and turned toward the officers, they opened fire. …

Mr. Walker was unarmed when he was shot. Police said they found a handgun in the car, but it’s not clear whether it was loaded. …

There are many unanswered questions that will determine whether these officers should be criminally prosecuted. Foremost: Was a gun discharged during the chase that gives credence to officers’ claims they feared for their lives?

Maybe the Editorial Board of the Washington Post should have waited until there’s strong evidence that the videotape of what appears to Walker firing out of the window of his car is actually instead explained by sunspots or whatever?

While the delay in the release of information has been troubling,

What delay? I posted body cam and security cam footage on July 3.

it is important not to prejudge the outcome of this case. There must be a thorough investigation and a full airing of the findings. Aside from the specific issue of possible criminal culpability, there should be some renewed soul searching by law enforcement authorities — both in Akron and across the nation — about practices that have resulted in unarmed Black suspects being killed by police more often than Whites.

Maybe there should be some first-time-ever soul searching by the Establishment about why so many incremental people have died by gunshot and car crash since they declared the “racial reckoning” and gave the impression that submitting to arrest was optional for blacks?

We hoped that after Floyd’s death, departments would reassess the use of deadly force, improve training and question the wisdom of tactics like giving chase to drivers with broken headlights.

After all, if the LAPD had just let O.J. escape to Mexico in 1994, they could have saved everybody a whole lot of time and trouble.

That this young man is dead after being stopped for a traffic violation is not only a needless tragedy, but it is just plain wrong.

  1. He effectively attacked the police in all versions of the events. Flight, shooting, then running at them. There have been by the way “routine traffic stops” in which the bad cop just unloads on the driver as soon as possible. There’s a famous video on Police Activity, the victim is white. Even in that case, where the cop lost his badge and was prosecuted, it wasn’t routine: the driver had led police on a chase and ended up in a ditch, so, that one cop’s criminality aside, police had been given reason to worry.

  2. Could it be, Steve, that’s it’s not that the “Editorial Board” members have never learned since their stupidity of 2 years back, but the Editorial Board is now comprised of different people from 2 years ago, and, yet again, these new people don’t know squat?

    I’ve seen this in the area I work in since the shutdown of the economy 2 years back. Turnover is high. Employees don’t know what they’re doing, then they do, about a month or 2 later, then there are different employees who again don’t know what they’re doing. I supposed training has suffered too, because the people doing the training have high turnover too.

    Not to be pedantic, but there are no “incremental people”. How about “… why such a large incremental number of people…”?

    Finally, I hope you don’t think that there are readers here who need your piece of advice on the suicide-by-cop thing. Maybe we’d be less suicidal if you didn’t read the Washington Post to us so much. ;-}

  4. One interesting area I noticed was Ohio. The state used to be bordered on all sides by other states which don’t require front licence plates. This bred an unusually high level of non-compliance in the state in terms of not having a front plate for cars registered there.

    While removing front plates is a kind of classic right-libertarian small government agenda, it seems Ohio passed a law removing the requirement in part because of support from depolicing advocates.

    https://cincinnati.com/story/news/local/2015/07/23/eliminating-front-license-plate-helped-shooting/30545935/

    And here are the police explaining that not being able to see a car plate from the front isn’t a great idea. They probably also can’t mention that having pretexts to stop people is actually often a good thing too.

    Altai, in Berkeley police can't stop you if you have no plates, or registration or inspection stickers or working tail lights or head lights or tires on your rims. The Berkeley City Council was very pleased when they passed those rules. And so were the people who drive like that.

  5. There is an easy way to equalise Black and White deaths by cop.
    Make cocaine as punishable as crack.
    Police will start to go after white guys as the punishments will look better on their record.
    White guys will be terrified of getting caught – pull over a white guy and of course glove compartments and pockets will get searched.
    And white guys will be really scared by the thought of 3 strikes.
    3 strikes or pull a gun on the cop – what you gonna do – white guy?

    And the cops will be just as scared, antsy and trigger happy pulling over whitey.

    Here's one from Fargo 2018, white guy was a crook but unarmed and as far as I know no-one has been disciplined or prosecuted for the crime.

    https://www.inforum.com/newsmd/officer-involved-shooting-leaves-man-dead-after-standoff-in-west-fargo

    One man is dead and at least three police officers from the Fargo-Moorhead area are on paid administrative leave following a shooting in West Fargo on Monday night, March 12.

    West Fargo Police Chief Heith Janke said the deceased man was the subject of a prior ongoing investigation leading up to the shooting.

    Janke said a West Fargo officer tried to pull over the man for a violation Monday evening but he fled and a high-speed chase ensued through West Fargo.

    During the pursuit, the suspect rammed a West Fargo police vehicle and eventually stopped in the 1000 block of 11th Street West, Janke said.

    A CodeRED alert was issued and residents living within a quarter mile of 1003 11th St. W. were asked to shelter in place while authorities started negotiations. The suspect remained holed up in a truck, and Janke believed there were weapons in the vehicle. Janke added that the suspect did not live at the home.

    The suspect refused to comply with any commands, Janke said, and so the Red River Valley SWAT team took over negotiations.

    At that time the suspect exited the vehicle, posing an imminent threat to officers, Janke said.

    Shots were fired at 10:37 p.m. The suspect was taken in an ambulance to Sanford Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Janke said. The suspect’s identity was being withheld pending family notification.

  8. Midterms are coming up so the Democratic Party’s collaborators in the media are falling back on the tried and true “police are hunting black men” narrative to try and motivate core constituencies and avoid an electoral bloodbath. As the summer of 2020 proved to all but the most blind, our elites are perfectly willing to manufacture a narrative that results in massive amounts of cultural and economic damage if it serves their political interests. However much they claim to care about blacks, they are really just cannon fodder in their political war against middle class whites.

  9. Arm black men with guns so that they can fight back against racist whites.

  10. Critics of the police in this case have harped on the number of bullets shot. But I haven’t read any that say how many policemen were shooting, which would give us an idea of the number of shots per police officer. But it seems rather silly overall to focus on the number of shots; either he deserved to be shot or he didn’t.

  11. Here’s the plan – any black male or female adult negro physically fit enough to wander into the welfare office is immediately sworn in as a police officer. Academy date TBD. Assign them a beat out of a precinct near their own neighborhood, and incentivize their pay structure based upon apprehending individuals in the act or upon suspicion of committing crimes. Give them a confiscated handgun as a service weapon, ASP, mace, taser, handcuffs, and an impounded vehicle repainted as a police car. Make sure they get a body cam and a dash cam.

    Then, hail it as a success regardless of outcome.

  12. Are people going to give iSteve a pass on calling what is presumably a magazine for a semi-automatic handgun a “clip”?

    If I have my terminology correct, a clip is a device that holds a small number of cartridges together to be loaded into a WW-II era rifle whereas a magazine is a rectangular box-like structure that also contains a spring to feed cartridges into a semi-automatic weapon.

    Gun control advocates call a magazine a clip, tipping Second Amendment defenders that a person is largely uninformed about the details of the types of rifles and handguns they seek to restrict or even outlaw.

    With respect to the Washington Post wondering out loud why “the word hasn’t gotten out” to some police officers regarding conducting traffic stops on a thin pretext or shooting a suspect without making certain this person is unarmed, all I can think of is a movie trope, where the eight officers who shot this man are standing in a room. Their sergeant or maybe someone higher up, like the captain or even their chief of police, walks around them, yelling belittling rhetorical questions, asking them if they “have any idea, at all”, of the financial impact on the city of a legal settlement, and whether they have been “in hibernation since May, 2020.” The officers stand in silence, fidgeting and throwing furtive glances at each other.

    A lot of people commenting on iSteve are like that police sergeant wondering, “Don’t you mokes ever watch the TV news or read a newspaper?” We on iSteve know how the police are under the most intense scrutiny. I also ask this question about the Highland Park shooter, “Don’t you know that your private expression of rage is going to get all of our guns taken away from us””

    But we are getting our news second hand, filtered through news organizations with an agenda. I am not going to pile on those police officers.

  15. 1. I skimmed the comments, 1,100 at this writing. To generalize from them: The WaPo’s readership isn’t very savvy and doesn’t know much about police shootings.

    2. The editorialists write, “Mr. Walker was unarmed when he was shot. Police said they found a handgun in the car, but it’s not clear whether it was loaded.” The Police said phrasing reminds readers that cops sometimes lie: Did they plant the gun? But it’s the editorialists who are doing the misleading — early on, the Walker family’s attorney confessed that the gun was Jayland’s.

    3. Linking to the paper’s database of police shootings, the editorialists write,

    Aside from the specific issue of possible criminal culpability, there should be some renewed soul searching by law enforcement authorities — both in Akron and across the nation — about practices that have resulted in unarmed Male suspects being killed by police more often than Females.

    They have no curiosity about whether Males come in contact with police more often than Females, or how that should influence accusations of Police Misandry.

  16. Seems strange there were eight cops on hand to shoot him. How many police cars were involved in the chase? The foot chase apparently only took about 10 seconds, but this was enougb for 8 officers to be on the scene and all ready to fire.

  19. Look at the arrest and high bail for Jose Alba who defended himself with a knife against a repeat felon, who got violent when Alba’s EBT machine rejected the babymomma’s maxed out card. The new rules mean you can’t defend yourself when joggers put their hands on you. You can’t arrest them without a lethal shootout. And you’re not allowed to vocalize these facts in public.

    There is an easy way to equalise Black and White deaths by cop.
    Make cocaine as punishable as crack.
    Police will start to go after white guys as the punishments will look better on their record.
    White guys will be terrified of getting caught - pull over a white guy and of course glove compartments and pockets will get searched.
    And white guys will be really scared by the thought of 3 strikes.
    3 strikes or pull a gun on the cop - what you gonna do - white guy?

    And the cops will be just as scared, antsy and trigger happy pulling over whitey.

    Bragg was put in office because he promised to "get Trump." The Soros agenda was secondary. When he admitted a Trump prosecution wasn't gonna happen, his base turned on him. Right now, he's on very thin ice. Law-and-order types hate him and progressives hate him. He hasn't tweeted since Jan. 18 because all his tweets were getting ratioed by the TDS crowd. I don't see him finishing out his term.

  24. Aside from the specific issue of possible criminal culpability, there should be some renewed soul searching by law enforcement authorities — both in Akron and across the nation — about practices that have resulted in unarmed Black suspects being killed by police more often than Whites.

    Maybe there should be some first-time-ever soul searching by the Establishment about why so many incremental people have died by gunshot and car crash since they declared the “racial reckoning” and gave the impression that submitting to arrest was optional for blacks?

  25. Eric Holder Jr found guilty of the 2019 murder of useless rapper Nipsey Hussle, but presumably, not THAT Eric Holder Jr, which has to be one hell of a coincidence that he’s not actually the son of former AG Eric Holder, as the former AG literally does have a son also named Eric Holder. possibly a III.

    context seems to preclude this from being the case, since it would be a big story otherwise, but search engines are chaos right now, with 3 people all having the same name, so it’s impossible to get the clear cut definitive answer with regard to which Holder is which.

    it’s a Holder’s world, we just live in it. it’s Eric Holders all the way down.

    Critics of the police in this case have harped on the number of bullets shot. But I haven’t read any that say how many policemen were shooting, which would give us an idea of the number of shots per police officer. But it seems rather silly overall to focus on the number of shots; either he deserved to be shot or he didn’t.

    2/3 hits doesn't sound bad for genuine street battle.

    Do they train cops to shoot slightly downward so that those other 30 bullets hit the dirt before they hit somebody walking his dog?

     

    Researchers analyzed 149 real-life OISs recorded over a 15-year period by Dallas (TX) PD. In nearly half of these encounters, officers firing at a single suspect delivered “complete inaccuracy.” That is, they missed the target entirely.

    “Unfortunately,” the study says, “the data do not provide a clear picture of what happened with these [errant] rounds, but, at worst, they struck other officers or innocent bystanders.”

    The research team, Dr. Christopher Donner and Nicole Popovich of the CJ department at Loyola U. in Chicago, note that “although the amount—and quality—of firearms training received by officers over the last century has increased considerably, there appears to have been little improvement in shooting accuracy.”

    From the earliest measurements in the 1970s, a wide range of researchers have documented that “police departments rarely ever achieve a 50% hit rate,” the authors report. Annual hit-rate averages in large departments such as New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Las Vegas, for example, have typically ranged from 22% to 52% over the decades.

    Bullet-level accuracy. Here, officers fired 354 rounds at suspects. Half the officers “were entirely inaccurate,” including one who fired 23 misses! Overall, about one-third (35%) of all officers’ rounds hit the targeted suspect. Most of those who had “perfect marksmanship” fired only one round.

    “Given the amount of firearms training the police receive, it would be assumed that they hit their target more often than not,” the researchers state. But the truth is that “officers are routinely inaccurate in their use of deadly force.”

    Only a few of these factors appeared to correlate clearly with accuracy or inaccuracy, the researchers found. For example:

    - Black suspects were significantly less likely to be hit than white subjects;
    - “[N]on-white officers were less likely to be accurate”;
    - “Incidents that took place during daylight hours were [significantly] more likely to result in the suspect being hit” (likely related to better “visual acuity”);
    -“[O]fficers were more accurate when shooting at unarmed suspects.”

    Maine ranks as the safest state in the country, as there were just 124 violent crimes reported for every 100,000 residents — less than a third of the national rate.

    Worst: Least diverse

    According to the latest Census data, 94.4 percent of Maine’s population is white, beating out nearby Vermont and New Hampshire as the least diverse states.

    Michigan
    Best: Great Lakes

    Michigan borders two of the Great Lakes, and has miles of beautiful shoreline to visit.

    New Hampshire

    Worst: High property taxes

    New Hampshire, which once had a reputation as among the most fiscally conservative states, assesses the second-highest property taxes in the nation.

    No, low state taxes often lead to higher local taxes. It’s called “subsidiarity“.

    Also, they just admitted New Hampshire was right behind Maine and Vermont as a least-diverse state. So where did they get that https://www.gannett-cdn.comvery diverse picture? Must be a college town.

    New Jersey
    Best: Highest state Pre-K spending

    Worst: Most hazardous waste sites

    To many of us, pre-K is a hazardous waste site itself.

    New York
    Best: Highest paid public school teachers

    Worst: Longest average commute

    Oregon
    Best: Most environmentally friendly

    Worst: Homelessness is a serious problem

    Dots, people, dots.

    Wyoming

    Worst: Unequal representation

    Just 11.1 percent of the state’s senate and legislature seats are occupied by women, the smallest share of any state.

    Usually, “unequal representation” vis-à-vis the Equality State refers to the US Senate and the Electoral College. But only New Jersey and Utah precede Wyoming in letting women vote (in the world, not just the US), so they must have some institutional memory that explains their preference for male legislators.

    Ohio
    Best: Lowest projected Alzheimer’s increase

    Worst: Horrible air pollution

    Is there an inverse relationship between Alzheimer’s and air pollution? That’s counterintuitive, and newsworthy. Alzheim itself has a windfarm, and looks to have very clean air, despite its proximity to industry:

    Eric Holder Jr found guilty of the 2019 murder of useless rapper Nipsey Hussle, but presumably, not THAT Eric Holder Jr, which has to be one hell of a coincidence that he's not actually the son of former AG Eric Holder, as the former AG literally does have a son also named Eric Holder. possibly a III.

    context seems to preclude this from being the case, since it would be a big story otherwise, but search engines are chaos right now, with 3 people all having the same name, so it's impossible to get the clear cut definitive answer with regard to which Holder is which.

    it's a Holder's world, we just live in it. it's Eric Holders all the way down.

    Did they really list “least diverse” as the worst thing about Maine? Oh, FFS, you’ve got to be kidding me. I resent hearing crap like that. It is just way too in our faces anymore. On top of it, we have to constantly hear terms like “black communities”, “black colleges”, etc. WHITE PEOPLE CAN’T HAVE ANYTHING. We have nothing just for US and all of the things that were ours, that we created, first had to be shared with, and are now mostly occupied and run by blacks. It is disgusting.

    Here’s one from Fargo 2018, white guy was a crook but unarmed and as far as I know no-one has been disciplined or prosecuted for the crime.

    https://www.inforum.com/newsmd/officer-involved-shooting-leaves-man-dead-after-standoff-in-west-fargo

    One man is dead and at least three police officers from the Fargo-Moorhead area are on paid administrative leave following a shooting in West Fargo on Monday night, March 12.

    West Fargo Police Chief Heith Janke said the deceased man was the subject of a prior ongoing investigation leading up to the shooting.

    Janke said a West Fargo officer tried to pull over the man for a violation Monday evening but he fled and a high-speed chase ensued through West Fargo.

    During the pursuit, the suspect rammed a West Fargo police vehicle and eventually stopped in the 1000 block of 11th Street West, Janke said.

    A CodeRED alert was issued and residents living within a quarter mile of 1003 11th St. W. were asked to shelter in place while authorities started negotiations. The suspect remained holed up in a truck, and Janke believed there were weapons in the vehicle. Janke added that the suspect did not live at the home.

    The suspect refused to comply with any commands, Janke said, and so the Red River Valley SWAT team took over negotiations.

    At that time the suspect exited the vehicle, posing an imminent threat to officers, Janke said.

    Shots were fired at 10:37 p.m. The suspect was taken in an ambulance to Sanford Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Janke said. The suspect’s identity was being withheld pending family notification.

    Tasers never work in notorious police shootings

    Tasers are single-shot, right? That’s a problem. Back in ye olde thymes when guns were single-shot, they lined up rows of dudes with muskets to shoot at other rows of dudes with muskets. They fired volley after volley. There were lots of veterans.

    Cops more miss with tasers, no shit. If they’re as bad with tasers as they are with guns, a cop has a 2/3 chance of missing. Then he has a less happy suspect. Worse, he has a suspect who knows the cop only has lethal options left, but right now, the cop doesn’t have a fireable weapon in hand. Pretty sure cops are only supposed to use tasers when they would have used the gun if they didn’t have the taser, so when the taser gets shot at him, the suspect knows what step 2 is.

    No wonder cops go for the service pistol.

    I had an interesting discussion about this subject with Dmitri Fyodorovich. I’m ashamed I did not think of the need to make the taser part multishot!

    If cops had the opportunity to fire 17 taser shots each, then Jayland Walker would still be alive. Honestly, he doesn’t sound like he was a scumbag. He was upset his wife was killed by a hit-and-run driver. He didn’t handle that well, but he wasn’t a Trayvon.

  52. @michael droy
    There is an easy way to equalise Black and White deaths by cop.
    Make cocaine as punishable as crack.
    Police will start to go after white guys as the punishments will look better on their record.
    White guys will be terrified of getting caught - pull over a white guy and of course glove compartments and pockets will get searched.
    And white guys will be really scared by the thought of 3 strikes.
    3 strikes or pull a gun on the cop - what you gonna do - white guy?

    And the cops will be just as scared, antsy and trigger happy pulling over whitey.

    Always lost in these ‘cocaine vs. crack’ comparisons is that a banker never shot up a neighborhood trying to score some blow.

    Today it’s racist to stop bad black drivers but the narrative could change at any time. So tomorrow it could be racist not to stop bad black drivers because failure to do so means more black traffic fatalities. Failure to ticker black drivers could become a civil rights violation.

    We’ll be told that it’s now ok to stop bad black drivers but only because racism and white privilege causes blacks to drive badly.
