This is an increasingly common view: that blacks are entitled to commit property crimes because calling the police on black shoplifters is tantamount to killing them (because blacks, being entitled to commit property crimes, are also entitled to resist arrest, which usually requires violence on the part of the resistors, which can escalate and Go Bad and wind up with the black criminals dead).

Is this clerk more likely to be made Employee of the Year or fired?

    Probably doesn't speak well of me that I first misread 'slandering' as 'slaughtering'..
  2. I guess if someone could locate a black (Black!) small shopkeeper in a black neighborhood, we could ask them what they they of this racist police policy.

    Nothing. In my area half the cops ARE BLACK but church going types & if they'd shoplift theyd2get arrested by black cops.....

    Anyway what will happen is stores will just quietly shutter high theft stores....then they'll bitch about a lack of investment in the community etc as everything continues to quietly go online.

    They'll do that til there's literally 1 store in the community and Patel the owner does cash only transactions behind a bulletproof boith and he keeps all the merchandise behind the counter & he hands you your purchase thru a robber proof slot in the glass.....

    , @Ragnar White
    @Muggles

    Maybe that black store owner would say "Why should your black lives matter to me?".

  3. Brick and mortar retail may soon join the dinosaurs in extinction.

    Unauthorized black shopping/looting, lockdowns, combined with the competition from online retailer will make it increasingly difficult to make a profit.

    Can’t wait for all the sob/horror stories about racism causing food and medicine deserts.

    In older times, the items for sale were behind the counter and one had to ask a clerk to hand you the item. Today, it would be called loss prevention. About the time that Steve lived in Houston, many convenience stores had a window that they used in the overnight hours rather than letting people come into the store. Once again, a loss prevention strategy. Now there will be no brick and mortar except maybe grocery stores, so that shoplifters were have to find a new line of work.

    You can see that clearly in the case of Jessica Krug. She is the classic borderline personality who displaced her anger at her family onto society and adopted Liberal politics at an early age as as outlet for such anger. The only thing that makes her different from most Leftists is that she then took it a step farther and crossed a line - she so identified with the "oppressed" blacks and Hispanics that she adopted their identity.

  6. OTish: The story of the central park ‘Karen’ has been turned by DC comics into it’s own comic book. (Of course, few copies will be printed and nobody will buy or read it) It’s actually written by the black birder, so it seems a bit mean to make the woman a complete Roshomon villainess.

    Weirdly they use terms like ‘It’s not a crime to be a birdwatcher’ but wasn’t her crime that she was letting her dog go in a nature preserve that forbade dogs due to their impact on wildlife rather than their impact on birdwatchers?

    She was in the wrong, the dynamic was one where she seemingly didn’t realise what she did and her fear of the black man arguing with her. The question is why she was so scared of a black man angrily confronting her. In the comic Cooper is drawn to be a young meek hipster. In reality Cooper is actually a fairly muscled man and would have been quite threatening to the woman. The woman is depicted as blond and blue-eyed whilst in reality she has brown eyes, jet-black hair and looks Jewish. She also comes screaming at him in the comic whereas in the real incident she becomes defensive. (Most people are when you call them out on breaking rules they don’t know or undnerstand)

    Not all heroes wear capes.

    Some heroes, it turns out, wear gay pride shirts and spend entire months nursing elaborate grudges against people who did not actually harm them in any way.

    In fact, now that I think about it, some heroes hold grudges against people whom they already got fired from their jobs and banned from Central Park for having the audacity to not want strangers messing with their dogs.

    Granted, "a woman called the cops on me because I popped out of the bushes at her and started trying to lure away her dog" might not be quite as inspirational of an origin story as, say, watching your parents get murdered in front of your eyes as a young boy. But we can't all be Batman. DC needs a B-team too.

    White women are more likely than Black Men to copulate with animals. I applaud our hipster gay Nubian King defending the earth from the base sexual urges of the Yakubian woman.

  7. Black behavior would seem to indicate, contrary to the Karen’s implication, that they do not believe that death is the necessary outcome of their occasional brushes with the law. Were it otherwise, I would assume that black criminality would be noticeably lower.

    I was about to mention this: Left unmentioned, as far as I know, in all the stories of this "incident" is that what we were seeing was the topic of this very post playing out: The dogwalker is most likely (as most if not all Karens are) a card-carrying member of the Left who's never voted for a Republican and has internalized every one of their messages, including "Police shoot black men for no reason at all."

    Of course, no one turns "racist" (or, better, reveals themselves to be "racist") quicker than a good Leftist. So when this birdwatcher starts to threaten her, she immediately digs up that message and declares that she will call the police- because we all "know" that police shoot black men.

    Hoist by their own petard indeed.

    Yes, because Donald Trump has just come into politics and this was Dorris's first opportunity to step forward.

    What is notable, to me at least, is that such accusers always come forward AFTER they have hit The Wall and can no longer use their sexual charms as currency, never before. When they still have that power, they are happy to wield it to get what they want but once it is all gone for good they suddenly remember that they were abused innocents.

    The good news is that this will change no one's mind. Whoever hates Trump already hates him based upon the many other women who have previously come forward with similar stories and those who like him don't care and will consider this story to be "fake news".

    A very large somewhat light-skinned black woman…and very busy BLM activist, per the “Institute for the Development of African American Youth, Inc.”

    IDAAY would like to thank Charity Sade, Owner of The collection By Sade, for her amazing fundraising efforts in helping bring more awareness toward IDAAY’s Black Lives Matter Movement Campaign.

    The Collection By Sade offers an array of beautifully handcrafted custom made Black Lives Matter pins and accessories. After witnessing George Floyd’s Murder, Charity searched her heart to figure out how she could help bring more awareness to the Black Lives Matter cause. It was then that Charity decided to create handcrafted custom black lives matter pins. The pins were originally made for protesters, but due to the many people taking an interest in wanting to support in purchasing and helping toward the cause, Charity went ahead and handcrafted more Black Lives Matter pins.

  24. On the theme of police not being allowed to arrest miscreants who just don’t really feel like being arrested, comes this story from Aurora, CO: Aurora, Colorado Police Stand Down Twice To Avoid Arresting Violent Felon. Guess Why

    The gentleman in question, a felon of multiple and diverse offences, was terrorizing an apartment complex for days, threatening people, smashing stuff up, exposing himself, and on and on. The cops were called twice, but both times were told to ‘stand down’. The fire department ended up rescuing residents of the building through a window.

    Why didn’t the police do anything? Well, let their chief explain it:

    Aurora Police Deputy Chief Darin Parker said, “We’re trying to get the situation resolved with the least amount of escalation, the least amount of confrontation as we can.” He went on to say that if the officers had responded more aggressively and attempted to take Thompson into custody it could have led to the use of deadly force.

    . . .

    Asked if he thought the outcome of the Elijah McClain case impacted police strategy, Parker said, “I don’t think it would be inaccurate to say officers are thinking about how they’re handling situations now … what could happen in a situation, and I got to tell you I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. Learning from situations that happened in the past whether it’s our agency or others is not a bad thing.”

    So that’s ‘progress’ in 2020.

    Sulu, interestingly, was the only character in the original series to (apart from some exceptions that prove the rule) never have any sort of romantic and/or sexual entanglements. I don't think it was intentional- George Takei doesn't seem like the type to refuse to play straight characters just because he's gay.

    They explicitly made Sulu gay in one of the recent "reboot" movies. Takei, interestingly, blasted the move, saying that he'd never played the character gay and they shouldn't make him one just because he is.

    I think that there is a misplaced maternal instinct involved. Normal women would dote on cats or some other animal that’s actually worthy of care.

  30. The cringiest part of this is when she yells at the guy, “you’re doing this for what, 30,000 a year.”

    It really sums up contempt (ironically) that the Democratic party has for labor–here’s a guy working a difficult job dealing with crazy people for not a huge amount of money and instead of lauding that–those sorts of people make society actually work– she belittles him.

    That is also, frankly, a attitude you see frequently in women and South Asians–contempt for people who do the necessary but non-prestigious work of society.

    The guy totally kept his dignity with those responses, though. Handled it like a boss.

    In older times, the items for sale were behind the counter and one had to ask a clerk to hand you the item. Today, it would be called loss prevention. About the time that Steve lived in Houston, many convenience stores had a window that they used in the overnight hours rather than letting people come into the store. Once again, a loss prevention strategy. Now there will be no brick and mortar except maybe grocery stores, so that shoplifters were have to find a new line of work.

    Not all heroes wear capes.

    Some heroes, it turns out, wear gay pride shirts and spend entire months nursing elaborate grudges against people who did not actually harm them in any way.

    In fact, now that I think about it, some heroes hold grudges against people whom they already got fired from their jobs and banned from Central Park for having the audacity to not want strangers messing with their dogs.

    Granted, “a woman called the cops on me because I popped out of the bushes at her and started trying to lure away her dog” might not be quite as inspirational of an origin story as, say, watching your parents get murdered in front of your eyes as a young boy.

When they still have that power, they are happy to wield it to get what they want but once it is all gone for good they suddenly remember that they were abused innocents.

    Yeah, it seems apparent that in many cases what makes something sexual harassment is how it ends. If it ends with a happy marriage then it wasn't harassment. If it doesn't, it was.

    Men and women are so far apart on this because neither seems to understand how the other side views sex and relationships. Or rather, by the time they have figured it out they have aged out of dating and a new crop of dummies has taken their place. Women are heterogeneous, of course, but a lot of them seem to view sex (on an unconscious, subliminal level) as a free sample they give out to get the customer to buy the product. Somebody who just takes the free samples with no intention of ever buying is a jerk, obviously. On the other hand, men often don't even realize they're being jerks because they enjoy sex for the sake of sex, doesn't everybody?

    Regardless, traditional sexual mores existed for a reason.

    Of course this is a gross oversimplification and yes random internet commenter I'm sure that all the hundreds of women you've bedded were happy with just sex because you are just. that. handsome. This comment doesn't apply to you, obviously, so just scroll on down.

    They explicitly made Sulu gay in one of the recent “reboot” movies. Takei, interestingly, blasted the move, saying that he’d never played the character gay and they shouldn’t make him one just because he is.

    Yes, because Donald Trump has just come into politics and this was Dorris's first opportunity to step forward.

    What is notable, to me at least, is that such accusers always come forward AFTER they have hit The Wall and can no longer use their sexual charms as currency, never before. When they still have that power, they are happy to wield it to get what they want but once it is all gone for good they suddenly remember that they were abused innocents.

    The good news is that this will change no one's mind. Whoever hates Trump already hates him based upon the many other women who have previously come forward with similar stories and those who like him don't care and will consider this story to be "fake news".

    Yeah, it seems apparent that in many cases what makes something sexual harassment is how it ends. If it ends with a happy marriage then it wasn’t harassment. If it doesn’t, it was.

    Men and women are so far apart on this because neither seems to understand how the other side views sex and relationships. Or rather, by the time they have figured it out they have aged out of dating and a new crop of dummies has taken their place. Women are heterogeneous, of course, but a lot of them seem to view sex (on an unconscious, subliminal level) as a free sample they give out to get the customer to buy the product. Somebody who just takes the free samples with no intention of ever buying is a jerk, obviously. On the other hand, men often don’t even realize they’re being jerks because they enjoy sex for the sake of sex, doesn’t everybody?

    Regardless, traditional sexual mores existed for a reason.

    Of course this is a gross oversimplification and yes random internet commenter I’m sure that all the hundreds of women you’ve bedded were happy with just sex because you are just. that. handsome. This comment doesn’t apply to you, obviously, so just scroll on down.

    I was about to mention this: Left unmentioned, as far as I know, in all the stories of this "incident" is that what we were seeing was the topic of this very post playing out: The dogwalker is most likely (as most if not all Karens are) a card-carrying member of the Left who's never voted for a Republican and has internalized every one of their messages, including "Police shoot black men for no reason at all."

    Of course, no one turns "racist" (or, better, reveals themselves to be "racist") quicker than a good Leftist. So when this birdwatcher starts to threaten her, she immediately digs up that message and declares that she will call the police- because we all "know" that police shoot black men.

    I'm white and have had the cops called on me at least four seperate occasions when I was committing no crime. I say "at least" because it's possible someone called a fifth or sixth time without the cops making subsequent contact with me. Often when you call for a cop the dispatcher will say straight up "we don't have anyone available right now."

    A big part of the problem in this country is that black people have no idea what it's like to be white. They are encouraged to think that every unpleasant experience they have is due to racism. They are discouraged from considering the possibility that white people might experience the same things. Hence why the names of Daniel Shaver and Duncan Lemp (to name but two) are not allowed to be put on NFL helmets: they were white.

    On the theme of police not being allowed to arrest miscreants who just don't really feel like being arrested, comes this story from Aurora, CO: Aurora, Colorado Police Stand Down Twice To Avoid Arresting Violent Felon. Guess Why

    The gentleman in question, a felon of multiple and diverse offences, was terrorizing an apartment complex for days, threatening people, smashing stuff up, exposing himself, and on and on. The cops were called twice, but both times were told to 'stand down'. The fire department ended up rescuing residents of the building through a window.

    Why didn't the police do anything? Well, let their chief explain it:


    Aurora Police Deputy Chief Darin Parker said, “We’re trying to get the situation resolved with the least amount of escalation, the least amount of confrontation as we can.” He went on to say that if the officers had responded more aggressively and attempted to take Thompson into custody it could have led to the use of deadly force.
     
    . . .

    Asked if he thought the outcome of the Elijah McClain case impacted police strategy, Parker said, “I don’t think it would be inaccurate to say officers are thinking about how they’re handling situations now … what could happen in a situation, and I got to tell you I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. Learning from situations that happened in the past whether it’s our agency or others is not a bad thing.”

     

    So that's 'progress' in 2020.

    Same. Hell, I’m a white female and had police called on me, or had people threaten to call the police on me, at least 7-8 times between ages 13-25. First incident was when my 10 year old sister and I were trespassing on someone’s private beach. The old man that owned the property called the police on us when he glimpsed us passing by. We were held until my mother picked us up. We were just wandering around our neighborhood.

    The problem is blacks don’t realize the busybodies also call the police on whites. You’re right - for them it’s all racism, all the time. And the nerdy white liberals believe the blacks’ narratives because they are so coddled, unthreatening, and wimpy that nobody ever called the cops on them. So they assume all whites must share the same experiences, not that they are just losers who never did anything fun or adventurous as teenagers/young adults.

    Weirdly they use terms like 'It's not a crime to be a birdwatcher' but wasn't her crime that she was letting her dog go in a nature preserve that forbade dogs due to their impact on wildlife rather than their impact on birdwatchers?

    She was in the wrong, the dynamic was one where she seemingly didn't realise what she did and her fear of the black man arguing with her. The question is why she was so scared of a black man angrily confronting her. In the comic Cooper is drawn to be a young meek hipster. In reality Cooper is actually a fairly muscled man and would have been quite threatening to the woman. The woman is depicted as blond and blue-eyed whilst in reality she has brown eyes, jet-black hair and looks Jewish. She also comes screaming at him in the comic whereas in the real incident she becomes defensive. (Most people are when you call them out on breaking rules they don't know or undnerstand)

    Anyway, “no company would open a store” isn’t true. Really, it’s no problem, just make it part of the price of business. WalMart / Target / Kroger wants to open a store in Sometown, USA to sell stuff to civilized people? The city just requires them to also open one in the black area – part of the price of doing business. A kind of tax that has to be paid.

    Some here may have, like me, eaten at one of those NYC "automat" restaurants. "Restaurants" in the broadest sense of the word.

    Last one closed in 1991. In the automat you pushed a button and the glass door opened letting you take out the sandwich or whatever. Mostly deli things as I recall. But some hot food too. You could see workers behind those glass doors in places, putting in the food, I guess preparing it.

    I can't recall how the payments were done. There were seats and tables I think, very basic.

    My recollection was you put in quarters or half dollars in each food window, but that seems crazy now. Of course prices were much lower then.

    Was visiting NYC on some political conference about 50 years ago or slightly less. I tried the automat just to see what it was about. I think I had a New Yorker to show me the system. Can't recall about the food. I don't think it was special, But quick and no worse than most. Cheap too.

    “When asked if we identify as Black, our answer should have always been ‘No’. There were three separate intstances we said otherwise,………………”

    Why aren’t these they/them people consistent? They should all be referring to themselves with “we”.

    Then they would sound like Gollum………..which is about right.

    I'll tell the truth, on my left arm I have a couple of symbols right at the wrist. One looks like a lightning bolt, one a three pronged flower and the third I can't make out. My oldest sister has the same marks. I also have three nipples. I also have an arrow on my index finger in a circle pointing to what looks like an eye on my right hand. I was born at twelve noon. My mother was 36 and my father was 40. My son was born at 0010 my daughter at 1223 twelve years later. My first husbands family was boy boy girl his mother was divorced, I married the eldest. I had a son in the North East. My second husbands family was boy, boy, girl. same ages, mother divorced. I married the second son and had a girl in the South West. My children are twelve years apart. I am the youngest of five and the youngest of three girls. My mother is the 9th of the living children of 12 and my father is the first of six boys.
    My Mother had six children but the first a boy was still born. Then she had a boy and girl one year apart. Then she had a boy and girl one year apart. Then I was an accident, she said she did not know where I came from. I was born in May which is the fifth month by our calendar with the New Year starting in January. But originally the New Year was March 15, to celebrate spring, and the end of winter, which is long, dark and no planting or growing food. But it was changed to celebrate the beginning of winter rather than it's end.
    I don't have a blog. I just have a really interesting circumstance and believe in God.

    I wonder how much of thé support for BLM etc is coming from white women who are projecting their maternal instincts on to black people because they have no other outlet for it.

     

    Yes. This is one of the primary facets of what I call Substitute Savior Syndrome. But in my experience some of the most mindless and vociferous Nice White Lady BLM supporters are/have been married and have children.

    A very large somewhat light-skinned black woman...and very busy BLM activist, per the "Institute for the Development of African American Youth, Inc."

    IDAAY would like to thank Charity Sade, Owner of The collection By Sade, for her amazing fundraising efforts in helping bring more awareness toward IDAAY’s Black Lives Matter Movement Campaign.

    The Collection By Sade offers an array of beautifully handcrafted custom made Black Lives Matter pins and accessories. After witnessing George Floyd’s Murder, Charity searched her heart to figure out how she could help bring more awareness to the Black Lives Matter cause. It was then that Charity decided to create handcrafted custom black lives matter pins. The pins were originally made for protesters, but due to the many people taking an interest in wanting to support in purchasing and helping toward the cause, Charity went ahead and handcrafted more Black Lives Matter pins.

    I'm white and have had the cops called on me at least four seperate occasions when I was committing no crime. I say "at least" because it's possible someone called a fifth or sixth time without the cops making subsequent contact with me. Often when you call for a cop the dispatcher will say straight up "we don't have anyone available right now."

    A big part of the problem in this country is that black people have no idea what it's like to be white. They are encouraged to think that every unpleasant experience they have is due to racism. They are discouraged from considering the possibility that white people might experience the same things. Hence why the names of Daniel Shaver and Duncan Lemp (to name but two) are not allowed to be put on NFL helmets: they were white.

    Same. Hell, I’m a white female and had police called on me, or had people threaten to call the police on me, at least 7-8 times between ages 13-25. First incident was when my 10 year old sister and I were trespassing on someone’s private beach. The old man that owned the property called the police on us when he glimpsed us passing by. We were held until my mother picked us up. We were just wandering around our neighborhood.

    The problem is blacks don’t realize the busybodies also call the police on whites. You’re right – for them it’s all racism, all the time. And the nerdy white liberals believe the blacks’ narratives because they are so coddled, unthreatening, and wimpy that nobody ever called the cops on them. So they assume all whites must share the same experiences, not that they are just losers who never did anything fun or adventurous as teenagers/young adults.

    OTish: The story of the central park 'Karen' has been turned by DC comics into it's own comic book. (Of course, few copies will be printed and nobody will buy or read it) It's actually written by the black birder, so it seems a bit mean to make the woman a complete Roshomon villainess.

    Weirdly they use terms like 'It's not a crime to be a birdwatcher' but wasn't her crime that she was letting her dog go in a nature preserve that forbade dogs due to their impact on wildlife rather than their impact on birdwatchers?

    She was in the wrong, the dynamic was one where she seemingly didn't realise what she did and her fear of the black man arguing with her. The question is why she was so scared of a black man angrily confronting her. In the comic Cooper is drawn to be a young meek hipster. In reality Cooper is actually a fairly muscled man and would have been quite threatening to the woman. The woman is depicted as blond and blue-eyed whilst in reality she has brown eyes, jet-black hair and looks Jewish. She also comes screaming at him in the comic whereas in the real incident she becomes defensive. (Most people are when you call them out on breaking rules they don't know or undnerstand)

    Some here may have, like me, eaten at one of those NYC “automat” restaurants. “Restaurants” in the broadest sense of the word.

    Last one closed in 1991. In the automat you pushed a button and the glass door opened letting you take out the sandwich or whatever. Mostly deli things as I recall. But some hot food too. You could see workers behind those glass doors in places, putting in the food, I guess preparing it.

    I can’t recall how the payments were done. There were seats and tables I think, very basic.

    My recollection was you put in quarters or half dollars in each food window, but that seems crazy now. Of course prices were much lower then.

    Was visiting NYC on some political conference about 50 years ago or slightly less. I tried the automat just to see what it was about. I think I had a New Yorker to show me the system. Can’t recall about the food. I don’t think it was special, But quick and no worse than most. Cheap too.
