Minneapolis’s basic problem at the moment is that its political leadership, for fear of seeming racist, has conceded control to the mob:

For a long term view, iSteve commenter Reg Cæsar says

I’ll let someone else analyze Milwaukee’s development, but few Southern blacks chose Minnesota, and those that did did not create an underclass. Their neighborhoods were small and more mixed. It was secondary migrations from mid-latitude cities that slowly created what those other cities had had fifty years earlier.

Welfare reform came late to Minnesota because it was less necessary. After it hit Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, etc, there was no place else for them to go. (Canada sure wouldn’t take them.) They brought their crack industry and wars with them.

This is why Minnesotans were so blasé about African refugees, not some airy-fairy humanitarianism mostly limited to post-Calvinist churches and college sophomores. You don’t worry about the dripping faucet when a fire breaks out in a bedroom.

By the way, how much of the current rioting is related to letting so many “nonviolent” criminals out of jails and prisons due to the epidemic?

  1. Second City Cop:

    “Chicago police officers have been ordered to “no longer use force to disperse large gatherings,” as tensions mount over the months-long stay-at-home order, and protests continue nationwide over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer kneeled on his neck

    “Until further notice, large gatherings will only be monitored until the crowd disperse on it’s own. Please ensure that all supervisors under your command are made aware of this instruction,” top brass wrote in a memo to commanders and officers Thursday night.”

    They’ve got to get military backup to defend police stations, grocery & drug stores, gas stations, etc. with orders to shoot looters. Let them protest but draw a line at violence and theft.

  2. From everything I can see the whites are behaving much worse than the blacks, the protests that don’t turn violent are much more black than the crowds that rioting. These are not black race riots like those those that happened between 1960 and 2014.

    I agree. It was largely a bunch of white misfit Antifa types burning down the 3rd District MPD station in Minneapolis the other night. They look like the same Antifa types we saw in Portland or Berkeley. And they seem to be able to operate with total impunity. Especially from the Feds. I’m beginning to wonder if Deep State is chartering their buses?
  3. I think this is the first time I am seeing widespread riots/protests where whites seem to be in the forefront. Looking at the pictures, it is as though non-whites are just peripheral. Another strangeness – so many women rioters/protesters. We are indeed living in interesting times.

    One other issue; with so much social non-distancing, there may be far, far, too many new infections (and deaths) due to Covid than due to violence. If we see sudden spurt in infections in all those places, we know how it happened.

    The current mayor of Minneapolis is a Jew from Northern VA. The former U.S. Senator from Minnesota is Al Franken (Jew born in NYC). Franken defeated the prior U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Norm Coleman (Jew born and raised in NYC). Prior to Coleman was Paul Wellstone (Jew who grew up in Northern VA). Wellstone defeated the prior U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Rudy Boschwitz (Jew from NY). And on and on…

    Kinda shocking how different it allegedly once was in Minnesota:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Minneapolis#Bigotry_and_corruption


    Minneapolis was known for anti-Semitism beginning in the 1880s and through the 1950s.[30] The city was described as "the capital of anti-Semitism in the United States" in 1946 by Carey McWilliams[31] and in 1959 by Gunther Plaut.[32] At that time the city's Jews were excluded from membership in many organizations, faced employment discrimination, and were considered unwelcome residents in some neighborhoods.

    There are a lot of videos where businesses have 'Minority Owned' rather than 'Black Owned' and I wonder if they feel this is more politically correct (Directly expressing just anti-White prejudice through anti-White solidarity) or if they are actually owned by East Asians/Sub Cons. Which would be funny since the immigrant shop owner in the ghetto is perhaps the most anti-Black racist person you'll ever meet.

    A little Minneapolis history:

    Fat men’s races and fall-out shelters, murder victims and loose women, cheerleaders and immigrants, celebrities and children in distress were just some of the urban curiosities splashed across the pages of city newspapers during the Speed Graphic era (1930s–1950s). Championed by acclaimed news photographers like Arthur Fellig (a.k.a. Weegee), the Speed Graphic camera produced a new visual style that was as blunt, powerful, and immediate as a left hook.

    Driven by the desire to fill newspaper pages with sensational images, press photographers shot everything, day and night: automobile accidents, fires, murders, all the cop news that fought for a hot spot on the Front Page. And they covered uncounted numbers of social affairs—pictures called “grip-and-grins” in the trade: school events, sports, celebrities, oddities both of nature and humanity.

    Editorial Reviews
    From The New Yorker
    The photographs in this collection are taken from the files of the St. Paul Pioneer Press and the St. Paul Dispatch, and span a period from the nineteen-forties to the mid-sixties. Among the many records of long-forgotten civic functions are shocking crime-scene photographs, a reminder of an era when the country’s newspaper photographers—an army of Weegees, equipped with oversized Speed Graphic flash cameras and radios tuned to the police scanners—regularly provided readers with lurid coverage of violent crimes and spectacular accidents. There is a harsh intimacy to these photographs, which bring us as close as possible to car-crash victims, suicides, and mass murderers confessing their crimes. But the welter of detail in the pictures—the seamed stockings of a murder victim, the huddle of bystanders after a bar shooting—provides a nuanced portrait of a Midwestern city and of American culture at midcentury.

    Review
    “A collection of vivid and sometimes spectacular photographs that throw new light on the not-so-distant past, a place that is a bit like home, a bit like a movie, and a bit like another planet. It is heartening to find such stuff so well preserved and so expertly annotated.? — Luc Sante, author of Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York, Evidence, and The Factory of Facts

    A reviewer had this to say:

    Interesting photos from non-media town , poor camera detail

    Reviewed in the United States on November 9, 2004
    This is a collection of photos from a newspaper not in New York or Los Angeles, and so provide an interesting change of pace from books by Sante and Jack Huddleston which cover the sordid side of this era in those over-covered towns.

    The title did, however, lead me to expect more on the cameras themselves. In this regard it’s a disappointment. I had hoped for reasonable coverage of the cameras themselves and perhaps even a gentle nudge to the reader to go out, rustle up an old Anniversary or Pacemaker Graphic, and experience firsthand the Speed Graphic era-which is not exactly over, as thousands are still in use in portrait studios, photo schools, and hobby users’ homes and on foot worldwide. Most are used as view cameras on a tripod, rather than press cameras with working rangefinders and flash (sadly, Star Wars idiots have destroyed most of the flashguns to make lightsabers,although the recent release of a commercial model with a very authentic flashgun handle offers hope that one might get the chrome parts and assemble an electronic flash with a working solenoid shutter release). Often the focal plane shutters of Speed Graphics (the Crown was shutterless)have been crudely ripped out.

    Still they were made in such quantities that a working Graphic with Graflok back,especially in the smaller sizes, is not that hard to find, and most repairs can be done by hobbyists with the opriginal manuals reprinted by Ed Romley and others. Rollfilm backs can be had, as can Polaroid backs, if one does not want to use sheet film. Other alternatives for hobbyists include glass plates (commercial or homemade) or photo paper, which can be reversal processed to 10 to 25 ASA making handheld use in daylight feasible.

    The cardinal rule of policing is that if an officer cannot deal or cope with a situation with the resources available to him, he radios in to request more officers etc, and if that isn't enough, radios for more again.
    Surely a group of ten reasonably tough men could have bundled George Floyd, kicking and screaming as he may be, into the back of the van, dropped him off at the station, and that would be the end of the matter.
    But, if at least half of the 'available' officers are women, what 'help' is seriously to expected?

    You need to get acquainted with some facts:

    —The preliminary coroner’s report has found no signs of asphyxiation or strangulation.

    —Neck restraints to one side are permitted by the MPD.

    —Chauvin was not applying the “full pressure of his body” via a point load to Floyd’s neck/shoulder area. Most of his weight was on the other leg. There was also some weight distributed onto Chauvin’s feet. He was trying to not put too much weight onto his left leg.

    —Floyd was talking and moving his head through the first 5-6 minutes of the video.

    —Chauvin’s knee was not far forward enough to be on Floyd’s trachea and probably not far forward enough to be on one of the carotid arteries.

    —Chauvin did not intend to kill Floyd.

    Remember that time a black guy overpowered a female prison security guard, escaped, fled to the house of a white woman, took her hostage, and was ultimately talked down? It was suggested then that perhaps having a male security guard accompanying large, violent male prisoners would be beneficial but -- apparently -- that was dismissed as sexism. Lol. This is a doomed society.

    On March 11, 2005 Nichols overpowered a sheriff's deputy while changing clothes, stealing her Glock gun, and beating her into a coma ... Nichols later progressed into the courtroom where he fatally shot Barnes, as well as court reporter Julie Ann Brandau. He later fatally shot Sergeant Hoyt Teasley while escaping from the courthouse. Nichols car-jacked several vehicles during his escape and was featured on America's Most Wanted during his manhunt ... the prosecution charged him with committing 54 crimes during the escape; and he was found guilty on all counts on November 7, 2008.

    Criminal charge: Murder, kidnapping, robbery, aggravated assault on a police officer, battery, theft, carjacking, rape and escape.

    I like how Benjamin Crump characterized the encounter as Floyd's being "accosted" by the police. "Accosted"....as though he were an innocent spade, walkin' down the street without a care in the world when from out of the blue, cops mugged him.

    Not once. Not in any media piece when they refer to his death, is mention made of the fact that he was caught in the act of committing a federal crime. Counterfeiting, or passing counterfeit bills is a serious offence. They would have nailed his hide to the wall for this one--and he knew it--which is why he wasn't getting in that cop car. He knew that he was looking at a long stretch in the Federal slammer or, if he cooperated and told them from whom and where he received the bill, then his life was as good as over because they would have put a cap in his sorry ass no matter where he tried to hide.

    Was he still a bouncer? I can't think of any better place to put counterfeit bills into circulation than a bar, where it's dark, the customers are drunk, often pay in large bills if they are drug dealers, are unlikely to take it to the police if they are themselves living beyond the pale of the law and so on. It is not inconceivable that he wasn't supposed to put his hands on those bills but did. They were meant to be distributed to customers. If he helped himself to a few then his arrest and trial would blow the ring wide open. He was f*cked. And that's why he resisted arrest. Which is why he died. And that may have been a good thing, from his perspective, less painful than what lay in store for him if the ringmasters had gotten their hands on him.

    Neither of the two current Minnesota senators, though both Democrats, are Jewish. Amy Klobuchar is part Slovenian and part German (I guess). Tina Smith's maiden name was Flint, and I guess is of Anglo-Saxon background.

    None of the eight congressman currently serving from Minnesota is Jewish, and it doesn't appear that any of the state's ~40 governors have been Jewish, either (hell, even Utah and Idaho have both had Jewish governors).

    And Minneapolis? Like many or even most US cities, it is a relatively small population (430,000) at the core of a much larger metropolis (3.6 million). Like most such cities, it is disproportionately comprised of a whole lot of people who are either ineligible to run for election, not smart enough to run for election (itself a very low bar), and a bunch of leftists. And, like most cities, I suspect it is probably home to a disproportionate share of the metro areas Jews.

    So the notion that Scandinavians are "good at being ruled" doesn't seem to bear out. Yes, there were basically four straight Jewish senators in the same senate seat, each defeating the other in turn, but that appears to be something of an anomaly. So far as I can tell, they are the only Jewish US senators Minnesota has ever had.

    "Chicago police officers have been ordered to “no longer use force to disperse large gatherings,” as tensions mount over the months-long stay-at-home order, and protests continue nationwide over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer kneeled on his neck

    “Until further notice, large gatherings will only be monitored until the crowd disperse on it’s own. Please ensure that all supervisors under your command are made aware of this instruction,” top brass wrote in a memo to commanders and officers Thursday night."

    Why not allow the Democrats to destroy their cities ? Supposedly the black neighborhoods destroyed in the 1992 riots have never recovered. It’s Maxine Waters district.

  28. Was watching these riots on FOX. I’ve seen better. Still nothing like the L.A. riot of 92′

    The FOX anchors and correspondents actually seem a little disappointed that the rioting isn’t more violent and destructive.

  29. That’s the essential problem of policing riots predicated on protesting policing.

    Maybe.

    I note, however, that anytime riots break out, anywhere in America, there are always places that the rioters avoid.

    Not just rich gated communities, either. Even when “protests” are tearing up only lower-class and working-class communities, there are certain places the rioters always seem to avoid. Almost like they’d be afraid to let their freak flags fly in those areas.

    Curious.

  32. I doubt too many of the rioters in Minneapolis are prisoners who have recently been released because of the pandemic.

    However, I do wonder if some people are rioting because they figure that the pandemic will make the police less likely to arrest them.

    While the pandemic has made it more likely for criminals to avoid arrest completely, it’s also made it more likely that criminals can get a really bad outcome from crime (sitting in jail without trial for months until criminal courts finally reopen.) I don’t know how bail is determined with the courts being closed, but anybody who gets arrested and can’t afford bail is totally SOL nowadays. Granted that the rioters might not realize that.

    As an aside, the sheer visceral impact of seeing images of a police officer applying full the pressure of his body via the point load of his knee to a prostrate man's throat is disturbing and shocking. Yes, yes, I know that it is edited footage, and I absolutely do not have a clue as to what went on before and the context, but in terms of emotional impact, the effect is of watching a particularly horrible and cruel murder.
    George Floyd was a giant, and likely a particularly strong man - this only makes his choking death seem more like a martyrdom. Perhaps if he was 'mob handed' by a team of police officers of matching strength, thee outcome might have been different. This is my main objection to female police officers. The take the same salary as a male officer, but in return the taxpayer gets a police officer who simply cannot do a good half - the important half - of the job.
    Perhaps if more male officers were available, on call, this tragedy would never have happened.

    You need to get acquainted with some facts:

    —The preliminary coroner’s report has found no signs of asphyxiation or strangulation.

    —Neck restraints to one side are permitted by the MPD.

    —Chauvin was not applying the “full pressure of his body” via a point load to Floyd’s neck/shoulder area. Most of his weight was on the other leg. There was also some weight distributed onto Chauvin’s feet. He was trying to not put too much weight onto his left leg.

    —Floyd was talking and moving his head through the first 5-6 minutes of the video.

    —Chauvin’s knee was not far forward enough to be on Floyd’s trachea and probably not far forward enough to be on one of the carotid arteries.

    —Chauvin did not intend to kill Floyd.

    The cardinal rule of policing is that if an officer cannot deal or cope with a situation with the resources available to him, he radios in to request more officers etc, and if that isn't enough, radios for more again.

    Surely it's a better plan to put too many cops in a situation dealing with a recalcitrant immensely strong giant than to put too few in.
    Nine tenths of police work is dragging a suspect - who quite rationally will fight like a tiger to get away - to the police cells, where he can be 'clapped in irons'.
    The easy part of police work is having the suspect pointed out, either by witnesses, detection etc. That is a mere triviality compared to the primeval brute force grappling match.
    As I said *all* the policing game is, in the final analysis, is about dragging the unwilling a way from control of their lives. No different to a trapper of birds or wild animals really.

    Perhaps if more male officers were available, on call, this tragedy would never have happened.

    Remember that time a black guy overpowered a female prison security guard, escaped, fled to the house of a white woman, took her hostage, and was ultimately talked down? It was suggested then that perhaps having a male security guard accompanying large, violent male prisoners would be beneficial but — apparently — that was dismissed as sexism. Lol. This is a doomed society.

    On March 11, 2005 Nichols overpowered a sheriff’s deputy while changing clothes, stealing her Glock gun, and beating her into a coma … Nichols later progressed into the courtroom where he fatally shot Barnes, as well as court reporter Julie Ann Brandau. He later fatally shot Sergeant Hoyt Teasley while escaping from the courthouse. Nichols car-jacked several vehicles during his escape and was featured on America’s Most Wanted during his manhunt … the prosecution charged him with committing 54 crimes during the escape; and he was found guilty on all counts on November 7, 2008.

    Criminal charge: Murder, kidnapping, robbery, aggravated assault on a police officer, battery, theft, carjacking, rape and escape.

    It is after 2 AM Central Time, and the governor of Minnesota is holding a press conference. A reporter just asked him if "white supremacists" are involved in organizing the riots. He has received those reports, but cannot confirm them.

    This is like the young reporter who asked Clinton after the mysterious NYC gas cooker bomb if she thought Putin was behind it to tilt the election to Trump. Clinton looked back at her like she couldn’t believe the media was letting a reporter through who didn’t know the anti-Putin stuff was neocon propaganda. Was pretty funny.

    But just like the police in Minneapolis are powerless to control the riots, editors are powerless to control the young female reporters who are having a moral panic moment and can’t ever contradict any of it since you are either ‘pro’ or ‘anti’.

    The cardinal rule of policing is that if an officer cannot deal or cope with a situation with the resources available to him, he radios in to request more officers etc, and if that isn’t enough, radios for more again.

    Surely it’s a better plan to put too many cops in a situation dealing with a recalcitrant immensely strong giant than to put too few in.
    Nine tenths of police work is dragging a suspect – who quite rationally will fight like a tiger to get away – to the police cells, where he can be ‘clapped in irons’.
    The easy part of police work is having the suspect pointed out, either by witnesses, detection etc. That is a mere triviality compared to the primeval brute force grappling match.
    As I said *all* the policing game is, in the final analysis, is about dragging the unwilling a way from control of their lives. No different to a trapper of birds or wild animals really.

    The riots are huge. They have shown that they are brazen. The military would have to shoot.

    The US military is not like say the Egyptian military which had no qualms about killing hundreds of people in Tahir square. Our military might mutiny, especially the POC.

    Furthermore, there is a probability that the officers will be found innocent.

    This is worse than Rodney King. Worse than Mike Brown. This probably is the worst killing of a black person ever captured on camera. And there is a real possibility of no conviction, or delays in the trial, etcetera.

    Epebble, Google’s contract tracing for Covid-19 will provide that data. Most of the protesters/partygoers had their phones with them; selfies matter. In San Jose it looked nearly half were women, the vast majority millennial age or younger. A lot of them dolled for the social media event.

    How big was the, er, turnout in Silicon Valley? Was it a token crowd or large enough to cause the local authorities to start worrying?

    (Assuming you do mean San Jose in California and not San Jose in Costa Rica.)

    I don’t understand very much about Silicon Valley (and doubtless it shows), but I would have thought that the (presumably intelligent) residents of such a place would be too bright to be fooled by any of this SJW nonsense.

    (Yes, I am sorry the Floyd fellow died, but as the Daily Mail implied, living like a criminal will likely result in your dying like one.)

    Agree and disagree. George Groyd's death is a wonderful thing, as is the public lynching of the pig proximately responsible for his death.

    Most recent recent Minnesota senators have been Jewish. And so is the Mayor of Minneapolis. In a 1% Jewish state. Scandinavians are good at being ruled, but hardly ever step up to that position themselves.

    Most recent recent Minnesota senators have been Jewish. And so is the Mayor of Minneapolis. In a 1% Jewish state. Scandinavians are good at being ruled, but hardly ever step up to that position themselves.

    Neither of the two current Minnesota senators, though both Democrats, are Jewish. Amy Klobuchar is part Slovenian and part German (I guess). Tina Smith’s maiden name was Flint, and I guess is of Anglo-Saxon background.

    None of the eight congressman currently serving from Minnesota is Jewish, and it doesn’t appear that any of the state’s ~40 governors have been Jewish, either (hell, even Utah and Idaho have both had Jewish governors).

    And Minneapolis? Like many or even most US cities, it is a relatively small population (430,000) at the core of a much larger metropolis (3.6 million). Like most such cities, it is disproportionately comprised of a whole lot of people who are either ineligible to run for election, not smart enough to run for election (itself a very low bar), and a bunch of leftists. And, like most cities, I suspect it is probably home to a disproportionate share of the metro areas Jews.

    So the notion that Scandinavians are “good at being ruled” doesn’t seem to bear out. Yes, there were basically four straight Jewish senators in the same senate seat, each defeating the other in turn, but that appears to be something of an anomaly. So far as I can tell, they are the only Jewish US senators Minnesota has ever had.

  93. My impression is that Minneapolis was a pretty crappy place even before it’s Somalian refugee problem, at least when compared to other Midwestern cities in the region. I didn’t spend much time there, but I remember just walking down Hennepin one evening 30 years ago right after coming into town and being propositioned by what seemed to be hordes of black prostitutes. Minnesota whites were typically more left wing back then, too, especially in the Twin Cities.

    I like how Benjamin Crump characterized the encounter as Floyd’s being “accosted” by the police. “Accosted”….as though he were an innocent spade, walkin’ down the street without a care in the world when from out of the blue, cops mugged him.

    Not once. Not in any media piece when they refer to his death, is mention made of the fact that he was caught in the act of committing a federal crime. Counterfeiting, or passing counterfeit bills is a serious offence. They would have nailed his hide to the wall for this one–and he knew it–which is why he wasn’t getting in that cop car. He knew that he was looking at a long stretch in the Federal slammer or, if he cooperated and told them from whom and where he received the bill, then his life was as good as over because they would have put a cap in his sorry ass no matter where he tried to hide.

    Was he still a bouncer? I can’t think of any better place to put counterfeit bills into circulation than a bar, where it’s dark, the customers are drunk, often pay in large bills if they are drug dealers, are unlikely to take it to the police if they are themselves living beyond the pale of the law and so on. It is not inconceivable that he wasn’t supposed to put his hands on those bills but did. They were meant to be distributed to customers. If he helped himself to a few then his arrest and trial would blow the ring wide open. He was f*cked. And that’s why he resisted arrest. Which is why he died. And that may have been a good thing, from his perspective, less painful than what lay in store for him if the ringmasters had gotten their hands on him.

    The President needs to federalize all the National Guards, and invoke the Insurrection Act to deploy active duty military.

     

    Not so fast. I think there might be a judge in Hawaii who wants a word about that first.

    Replies: @Nicholas Stix

    If Trump wants to play president, he has to tell the judge to go to hell, which he should have done three years ago. Otherwise, he needs to take his marbles and go home.

    Perhaps if more male officers were available, on call, this tragedy would never have happened.
     
    Remember that time a black guy overpowered a female prison security guard, escaped, fled to the house of a white woman, took her hostage, and was ultimately talked down? It was suggested then that perhaps having a male security guard accompanying large, violent male prisoners would be beneficial but -- apparently -- that was dismissed as sexism. Lol. This is a doomed society.

    On March 11, 2005 Nichols overpowered a sheriff's deputy while changing clothes, stealing her Glock gun, and beating her into a coma ... Nichols later progressed into the courtroom where he fatally shot Barnes, as well as court reporter Julie Ann Brandau. He later fatally shot Sergeant Hoyt Teasley while escaping from the courthouse. Nichols car-jacked several vehicles during his escape and was featured on America's Most Wanted during his manhunt ... the prosecution charged him with committing 54 crimes during the escape; and he was found guilty on all counts on November 7, 2008.

    Criminal charge: Murder, kidnapping, robbery, aggravated assault on a police officer, battery, theft, carjacking, rape and escape.

    We also have female prison guards who sleep with the inmates and actively help them escape.

    So what happens if White people start shooting it out with Blacks? If there is no where else to go even Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto staged a last stand.

    Does the Governor order the Guard in ... To protect looters? Do they assist in arson looting robbery rape and murder?

    Looks that way?

    And what happens when the mob egged on by anti fa starts burning suburbs?

    This is not 1992. Cops in the suburbs won't hold the line. He'll the Secret Service will run away if the White House is over run.
