Newly painted in huge yellow letters on 16th Street, just north of the White House, is the slogan: “Defund the Police.”

That new message sits beside the “Black Lives Matter” slogan, also in huge letters, painted there at the direction of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

She renamed that section of 16th Street “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”

Still, the messages are less ominous than the chants of protesters in New York after the takedown that resulted in the death of Eric Garner.

Protesters then chanted of the NYPD: “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!”

While this sudden campaign to defund and dismantle city police forces seems an absurdity, it is actually part of a thought-out radical program that has gained momentum since the sadistic public execution of George Floyd in Minneapolis two weeks ago.

Consider. On Sunday, nine members of the city council, a veto-proof majority, voted to disband the Minneapolis police department. Asked if he would support the council decision, Mayor Jacob Frey hedged, “I do not support the full abolition of the police.”

As the crowd jeered and booed, the mayor walked away alone.

The idea of defunding police departments has caught fire, and liberal politicians are scrambling to get in front of their radical constituents. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced that he will reallocate up to $150 million from the LAPD budget to social programs.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says he will be transferring $1 billion: “We will be moving funding from the NYPD to youth initiatives and social services.”

In two weeks, there has been a sea change in attitudes toward police, with not a few coming to share the hard left’s hatred. While the criminal elements burned cop cars and showered police with bottles, rocks and bricks, even “peaceful protesters” were calling the police fascists and racists.

Two decades ago, the NYPD were celebrated “first responders” who ran toward the collapsing twin towers, many never to come back. Funerals of the cop heroes were televised. Those days are gone.

Indeed, after two weeks of seeing police decried on nightly TV as racist oppressors of African Americans, cops must realize that they are reviled and detested by some of the countrymen they have sworn to protect.

What will happen now is predictable, as it has happened before.

To pander to the militants on the left, liberal politicians will devise new restrictions on cops and more severe punishments for infractions, treating the police as potential threats to civil and constitutional rights.

The “Ferguson Effect” will take hold. Cops will back off from confronting the lawless and violent. Criminals will see an opening to seize opportunities. The urban poor who look to the police as their only protection will stay inside and lock their doors. And small businesses, realizing the cops may not be there, will sell and move out.

Where is this leading?

ORDER IT NOW

According to former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, not only did New York law enforcement officers suffer many injuries in the riots, hundreds of cops, seeing how they are regarded and were treated by many whom they protect, are preparing to leave the NYPD.

As the Democrats’ “police reform” bill is debated on the Hill, Republicans will largely stand with the police and Attorney General William Barr, who said Sunday that while there is racism in America, there is no “systemic racism” in the nation’s police departments.

If there were, it would be an indictment of the Democrats, who have run most of our great cities for decades.

As it rises in prominence, the issue of defunding police will divide the Democratic Party more than the GOP.

For while the hard left sees cops in ideological and class terms as racist and fascist, the right, by and large, sees the police as the last line of defense again the anarchy we saw erupt when there were not enough cops in New York and D.C. to control the mobs looting Fifth Avenue and Georgetown.

And this, too, is likely to become a forever war in America. For it is almost inevitable that we are going to see more violent collisions between white cops and black suspects, collisions that result in deaths.

For every large urban police force has daily encounters with black male criminals, who commit a disproportionate number of violent crimes. Some will end with dead cops, and the others with dead criminals.

President Donald Trump has taken his stand with the police.

It is Joe Biden who has the problem. For while Democratic mayors are unlikely to join a campaign to abolish their police forces, Biden is going to have to tell his Bernie Bro and socialist constituents that their ideas for getting rid of police departments are ridiculous.

Monday, Joe made a start. He said that defunding cops is off the table.

  1. The seemingly-ridiculous campaign to ‘defund’ police departments might be smarter than imagined.

    What the radical left and BLM want is for police departments around the country to purge as many white or pro-Trump cops as possible so they can be replaced with POC (‘members of the community’) who will then mete out justice according to their political sympathies and ‘links to the community’.

    If they get their way, grievance politics and racial tribalism will eventually trump the Rule of Law. This will finally result in fewer blacks in prison but more criminals on the street.

    As far as Police are concerned, The police are attacking peaceful protesters all over the country. Time to come for their jobs, pensions, budgets, and their entire cop culture. Let the GOOD “apples” make themselves known, and let them break entirely with the blue brother/sisterhood…or they go down too.

    These people should all be fired…every one of them. They can’t be trusted to do their jobs if they applaud brutality & indifference to a man bleeding on the ground. End their careers. No gun. No badge. No paycheck…let them join the unemployment rolls immediately.

    In the 60’s we had grass roots protests and riots about institutional racism that was pervasive and rampant. We had the immoral Vietnam war. We had murders of JFK, RFK, and MLK. We had a somewhat freer news media that valued fair reporting.

    In the 2020’s we have a kernel of truth to institutional racism in the police force. It coincides with the kernel of truth that black people are somewhat lawless and chronically unable to compete in the modern world. We have lots of immoral wars. We have a news media complex which is full of lies and biased on the whims of corporations. We have no real leaders to direct our moral compass. We live and play on astroturf.

  7. “the sadistic public execution of George Floyd in Minneapolis two weeks ago.”

    Cross examination in the trial of the officers will easily defeat such nonsense and all charges against those officers, Pat. There will be no convictions.

    Then? Of course, that’s going to reinvigorate the mobs again and the looting, burning, raping and killing will commence afresh.

    Here’s a news flash for you Pat…the word “justice” used in the now common phrase “No Justice, No Peace” is just a buzzword. The mob has absolutely no interest in actual justice. And, the implication of their poorly thought out rhetoric is that they want war instead, as their form of utterly unbalanced and perverted “justice” won’t be achieved in the U.S., ever.

  8. cops must realize that they are reviled and detested by some of the countrymen they have sworn to protect

    The police protect no one but themselves and their paymasters in gov’t. They aren’t protecting the shopkeepers whose property is being destroyed by looters. They can’t protect the citizenry from common muggings, robberies, rapes, murders, etc because they aren’t there when it happens. They are useless in their advertised position.

    Get rid of the average street cop while retaining investigators and the organization that actually does do analysis after the fact to determine who did what. The street cop doesn’t do anything useful for the salary and all the problems he generates.

    If someone thinks I’m wrong, then please produce a list of all the valuable contributions the average street cop makes. Don’t bother with all the nebulous phrases like ‘prevents crime’, etc because that’s just propaganda. Provide verifiable empirical evidence that the average street cop provides a valuable function commensurate with his salary, future pension, and weighed against the police murders that they usually get away with.

    Cops are antifa with guns and the law on their side, nothing more. Blacks have it half right; cops are vicious thugs but the only people they’re racist against are their fellow Whites.

    The problem with what you are asking for is that it is impossible to determine. There is a need for a certain amount of redundancy in everything (as we have just found out with Covid-19 and PPE). Cops do prevent some crimes from happening. They do arrive in time to stop some crimes in action. The question is how much and how much more crime would occur if criminals knew that the only way they are going to be caught is by some detective long after the fact.

    Residential burglaries with nobody getting physically hurt aren’t even investigated in many places. Imagine what happens if the crooks can just take their time and load up their truck while the neighbors can only sit and watch because any confrontation ending in the death of the burglar might cause them to rot in prison.

    Not that I agree with defunding the cops entirely, but there are way too many blue badged Street thugs that really should be hanging dry-wall, and digging ditches.

    This type of disrespect of the trades is really part of the problem. It is part of the reason why there are so many debt ridden students with no plan. Too many young men are sent to college and come out as White guilt antifa losers instead of going into the trades.

    Have you ever actually hung dry wall or hired someone to do it? In a lot of areas you can’t even find someone to do it. Someone actually skilled at doing it can get employment anywhere because it is not as easy as people think and it’s really expensive if they screw it up. They easily make more than a 4 year grad with a White guilt degree.

    There also aren’t enough qualified POC to fulfill open police positions. This of course never enters the mainstream conversation. It’s not like Chicago or Minneapolis want that many White cops. They would much rather hire Blacks or Hispanics. TEEVEE depicts it as a job for college drop outs and yet the Chicago PD is heavily White despite all kinds of attempts by the city to recruit Black police. Same for NYC.

  16. @MarkinLA

    If street cops disappeared, the average person would realize what has been obvious to me for decades, and that is that one has to protect oneself, including property, regardless of ‘law’. The average person would then be more inclined to tell the legislature to FO about gun permits and all the obviously unconstitutional laws now on the books.

    Criminals get guns and don’t care about laws. The rest of the public needs to do the same thing. When confronted with a criminal, shoot to kill so that POS is permanently nullified. No prisons, no wardens, no guards, no expense to the taxpayers.

    The investigators are required when the civilians don’t catch the criminal in the act. The citizenry needs to become their own police force individually to do what the cops are absolutely unable and incapable of doing and that is catching the criminal in the act with the exception of every once in a great while being on the scene of criminal activity by coincidence.

    The street cop is so ineffective as to be considered unfit for purpose. That fact needs to dawn on people and then they’ll seek change to the current corrupt justice system that always inflicts even more damage on an injured party by way of funding the incarceration system that does next to nothing to deter criminal activity.

    What happened to George Floyd wasn’t a “sadistic public execution” but what happened to white Daniel Shaver was when he was begging for his life before a thug white cop opened fire on him for no apparent reason. But few know Daniel Shaver’s name because he was white and in America white lives don’t matter.

    I want people to tell the politicians to pound sand and arm themselves regardless of the law. Then tell the political class they do not represent them and get the laws rewritten to allow for what the Constitution intended.

    The population needs to start making demands and stop acting like slaves. The political class is not our masters and when they step out of line we need to remind them that they work for us, not the other way around.

    Given the current zeitgeist, white cops are volunteering to be part of the defunding process. Many are retiring early, or just leaving an impossible, no win, profession. And, good luck replacing them. What sane young white male would want to be a city cop today, only to suffer nothing but abuse from BLM and their young white flunkies, and, especially, the spineless democrat politicians who run the crumbling cities.

    By the way we’re almost exactly the same distance in time between the LA riots (And smaller riots that took place in other cities) as the LA riots were to the various race riots in the late 60s.

    Nothing of substance has changed vis-a-vis the average black American being a member of a socially and economically marginalised underclass. (Whose political influence is outsized but never seems to lead to anyone advocating for policies that might help the poorest Americans in serious terms like reduced immigration to promote a tighter labour market or serious opposition to globalisation, it’s always just ‘racism’. MLK took a dirt map by the time he started down that road and black American politicians have been stuck in stasis ever since.) In fact they’ve fallen further behind.

  36. The current reality resulted from the fading of the balance between SAY and SEE, especially as the SAY was used as cover to push against the SEE.

    Ever since the Civil Rights Era, politicians and prominent people have been SAYING good things about blacks. The SAY was pro-black.

    But what did people SEE in their everyday lives as years passed? Rise in black criminality and pathology. And things got worse and worse. Also, the boomers, the biggest generation ever, were so busy yapping against the evils of the older generation that they were, for a time, oblivious of things falling apart.

    Still, precisely because the SEE was so at odds with the SAY(that hadn’t gone totally PC back then, i.e. blacks were praised but not yet ‘sacralized’), many people(even Liberals) had some sense of actual reality. They heard and said the SAY but they could SEE what was really going on. They heard from their friends and families about black crime, or they experienced it first hand. Even if not victims of crime, they could SEE the rise in grime.

    Finally, the boomers got in control of things. Since they had ‘moral cred’ as the ‘progressive counterculture generation’, they could do things that would have been condemned among the older generation. (It’s like Richard Nixon could go to China and make deals with the USSR because of his anti-commie credentials.) Especially beginning with Billy Boy Clinton, the boomers decided to counter Big City crime(that was especially damaging to Democrats). They pushed back against what what they could SEE, which was mostly black thuggery and violence. (As Jews came to elite dominance as boomers, there was the Jewish angle as well. Jews could get away with more stuff as they had the ‘holocaust’ shield.)

    But even as boomer elites began to clamp down on the SEE, they kept with the same SAY. Actually, they pushed the SAY even harder. Blacks went from objects of sympathy/reverence to those of worship/sanctity. There were two reasons for this. Boomers came of age during the Civil Rights Era that defined the times. But on a more cynical and opportunistic level, it was a means to cover up their war on the SEE, which was too much black crime. If Clinton and NY-ers were to get tough on black crime, they had to mask their tough ‘racist’ actions with endless paeans to black holiness. (Another problem was the rise of rap culture, or the idolization of black nihilism. If black thuggery was once seen as a bad thing, rap culture made it ‘cool’. SWEET SWEETBACK was a cult thing in the 70s, but such became the mainstay of American culture in the 90s. If THE GODFATHER made Italian-Americans idealize mafia patriarchs, Rap culture led to black and white kids idolizing street punks.)

    Still, because the War on the SEE was carried out for real, crime did plummet in places like NY. And even in other cities where black crime remained problematic, the downtown areas improved markedly and became safer than ever. Areas once depressed in value with black housing projects became gentrified and among the priciest places on Earth. The best parts of the cities, the downtown areas, sprung back to life. The war on the SEE worked. Yet, the SAY not only remained pro-black but even more so. The more the whites, Jews, homos, and immigrants pushed out blacks, the more they claimed to worship the Magic Negro and Badass Bro.

    No one quite realized what kind of impact this would have on the younger generation of Americans, especially affluent urban whites. Millennials lived in a far safer and nicer world due to the war on black crime, but for that very reason, they experienced less of raw urban reality as counterbalance against the indoctrination of the SAY.
    Earlier generations also heard the SAY but witnessed and experienced the SEE. Just like people in the Soviet Union heard the holy SAY about the glories of communism but could SEE that the shelves were empty, it used to be that many Americans understood the SAY to be largely BS as they could SEE so much black pathology in big cities.
    But among the Millennial privileged in big cities, there was far less SEE to prick the bubble of the SAY that became ever more obnoxious with ‘wokeness’. Or, even if some Millennials did experience black thuggery and crime, they were so enamored of the black rap gangsta idol that they cucked before black violence than get angry about it.

    And so, we have the current paradox. Younger whites in cities are so much better off because the boomers used the War on the SEE to drastically reduce black crime by means of incarceration, stop-and-frisk, gentrification, and immigration. But because they were raised with the SAY of black holiness, they became reverential of the very thing that had to be clamped down to make cities better. And as black crime was reduced to a considerable degree, there was less getting mugged-by-reality among Millennials to balance out the bogosity of the SAY. So, Millennials became yay to the SAY.

    Some have compared the current nuttery to the Cultural Revolution in China, and there is one striking similarity. After Mao Zedong brought upon total disaster with the Great Leap Forward(that led to mass famines and tens of millions of deaths), something had to be done about Maoism to make the Chinese economy recover so that people could eat again. People during the Great Leap could SEE what was happening. Even Mao came around to admitting the Great Leap failed. So, Maoism was rolled back in action, BUT the SAY remained the same. Mao was still the wise leader, the great helmsman, the sun that rises in the East. There was less Maoism in action but still lots of Maoism as official ideology. So, even though the economy recovered by rolling back Maoism, the younger generation was nevertheless indoctrinated with the mythology of Maoism. At the very least, even the true-believers of Maoism during the Great Leap could SEE the result of its wholesale application. The brutal SEE countered and balanced out the official SAY. But by 1966, the Chinese economy had recovered enough so that the famines were over and forgotten. So, the young ones, who weren’t starving, got the SAY but there was no SEE to warn them against Maoism in radical action. The result? The madness of the Cultural Revolution.

    In both the US and China, the SEE was rolled back but the SAY remained the same. Or worse, the SAY intensified even as the SEE was reduced. Blackness was praised in words while blackness was suppressed in action. Maoism was praised in words while Maoism was rolled back in action. One might think the anti-black and anti-Maoist actions would reduce the power of the pro-black and pro-Mao SAY. But the effect was the opposite. With less black crime, there was less mugging-by-reality to wake up the ‘woke’. With no more Maoist famines, there was less starving-by-reality to warn young people of the dangers of radicalism. And so, China had to learn a second time of the dangers of Maoism with the loony Cultural Revolution, and the US has to go through the lesson of black pathology once again.

    The lesson from all this is the Danger of saying one thing while doing another thing. Now, one might think this is a clever way to cover up pragmatic deeds with idealistic sermons, but once the deeds succeed, the bogus sanctimony of the words is less likely to be checked by reality.

    For example, if an African tribe says hyenas and lions are noble while hunting them down to make the village safer, it will result in greater safety for the tribe as there will be fewer lions and hyenas. But it also means that the young tribesmen will revere lions and hyenas EVEN MORE because there will be fewer lions and hyenas to attack them and wake them to the dangerous reality of big predators. As such, they will condemn the elders for having killed the sacred lions/hyenas and welcome the big animals to the village… with grim results of course.

    There is a well known phase: “Where are the police when you need them?” This is based on the fact that when people are confronted with a murderer or robber or rapist they will not have any police at hand to defend them. They must defend themselves or become a victim. This is a fact because the police cannot be every where all the time.

    So the police do not actually defend anyone. They come later, after the crime has been committed. They investigate. They may apprehend the criminal. They may not.

    So for that moment of defense from criminal assault, the citizenry are own their own. You were never there when they needed you. So what good have you provided to those citizens who’ve paid you all those 33 years? Maybe arresting some criminal, after the fact.

    Fact is, people may not notice your absence at all.

    I’m in the deep south and close to retirement. You evidently don’t know shit about pensions in the south: they’re small. Law enforcement down here, outside the large cities, is not unionized, so pensions are horrible.
    I imagine I have done more for my race and ancestors in my 40 years on the ol’ mortal coil than yourself, but who knows? (And what exactly have you done for yours?…) As for my nation, I don’t recognize what passes for Murika as my nation anymore. That ship sailed years ago.

    So the police do not actually defend anyone. They come later, after the crime has been committed. They investigate. They may apprehend the criminal. They may not.

    I live in rural America where we like our police and they can get to my house within 2 minutes. It doesn’t matter what the call is, they will show up because they have nothing else to do. In 98% White areas the police get bored.

    I have also lived in the city where the justice system is managed by liberals that constantly fret about how much crime is committed by non-Whites. The justice system is never scaled up to the level of crime that occurs. So what happens is that the police become overstretched and have to prioritize serious crimes. That isn’t the fault of the police. They are employed by the city, it isn’t their job to magically be everywhere at once. Furthermore they would prefer it if these cities would hire more officers but liberals flip out when anyone suggests it. This happens in Chicago all the time. Someone proposes a new jail or hiring more officers and the liberals go into sloganeering about “education over incarceration” and nothing changes.

  43. So while I support the police if Minneapolis decided to eliminate their police force I would be completely for it.

    Let’s have the public conclude once and for all that the far left in the US is led by total idiots. Shouldn’t take more than a week and they will want their police back. Would undoubtedly be good for Trump.

    I said don’t vote at all. Make the GOP lose.

    Being better than Biden isn’t good enough. Being better than Bill Clinton, better than Gore, Kerry, Obama or Hillary wasn’t good enough either.

    If you don’t break out of the frame of “lesser evil – better than Democrat X” you will never get credible political opposition in this country.

    Get off the Republican plantation – flex your political power by making the GOP lose until an opposition party, Republican or otherwise, fields candidates worth voting for – then hold them to account for making your agenda happen. If they don’t, deny them your vote.

    Trump has no problem getting things done for Israel – where there’s a will, there’s a way. He has no will to do any of the things he promised in 2016, ever.

    Four more years of Trump will just give you four more years of excuses and more bailouts and tax cuts for Wall Street.

    I frankly think it’s too late to save the system because opponents of neoliberal globalist uniparty politics have waited far too long to flex the power of “No” and bought into the “lesser evil” trap for too long.

    I have the greatest respect for Mr. Buchanan, but in this case I think he is missing the bigger picture.

    The elites have been strip-mining this country of wealth in an orgy of avarice not seen since Russia under Yeltsin. Our industrial jobs have been shipped off to communist China, and many of the remaining ones are increasingly given to indentured foreign nationals. Wages are down, rents are unaffordable, medical care is unaffordable, education is unaffordable. People are drowning in debt, but thanks to utter scum balls like Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton, they can no longer get out from under and are sentenced to a lifetime of debt-servitude. The government throws away a trillion dollars a year on endless pointless overseas wars, and increasingly is throwing tens of trillions of dollars in bailouts and now direct cash payments to the super-elites. Now with the coronavirus-induced economic collapse, countless working class Americans are going to be driven into poverty.

    All this nonsense is just to distract the working class from their real enemies. Let the cities burn, let middle-class whites be terrified (the elites are safe in their gates estates, natch), set blacks against whites. All according to plan. It’s not “liberal” it’s corporate.

    In communist China, when Mao’s disastrous attempt at social engineering by demanding that the Chinese all have seven kids each at an early age (“strength through numbers” – check out Ma Yinchu on wikipedia) caused horrible poverty, the Communists needed to invent some enemies to deflect the energy of all those angry young men. Scoff at the antics of the BLM nuts all you like – I know I do – but they pale in comparison to how the intelligent and orderly Chinese went wild with screaming rage when they had been prodded and propagandized into fighting the “correct” enemy…

  60. When the Word and the World are not in alignment, people who take the Word to heart act in ways that do harm to the World and then to themselves because Reality always takes revenge on those who push falsity. So, in the end, the World wins over the Word, but by then, so much harm had been done. So, it’s better to use the Word in alignment and consonance with how the World really is. Good use of the Word guides people to act properly in the World. It’s like good medical advice leads to responsible behavior that is good for health. But when the Word is bad in medicine, those heeding the advice will suffer in the World and make it a worse place as a World full of sick people is a kind of hell. Eventually, the physical suffering caused by bad Word will force people to change course in the World, but by then, they’d needlessly suffered because they’d blindly heeded the Word. Consider what the Word on Covid-19 did to the World Economy.

    Eventually, the mindless promotion of Negrolatry will lead to a reaction because it is a biological fact that blacks evolve to be most violent, aggressive, and pathological. Indeed, worshiping blackness will lead to outcomes worse than worshiping Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, and Mao Zedong. After all, despite the horrors caused by communism and Nazism, none of them managed to, in the end, destroy German Civilization, Russian Civilization, and Chinese Civilization. But when white people take blackness to heart as the ultimate holiness, they are paving the way for the total destruction of the West. Why? Africans Africanize whereas Europeans Europeanize. As whites worship the false god of blackness and welcome more mass-migrations of black, the result will be the Africanization of the West. Then, it’s Adios White Race. Then, even if whites finally realize the foolishness of the ‘woke’ Word, their World will be too far gone to be saved and restored.

    You will hear about Camden’s success in “abolishing” its police department. There have been some real successes there, too – murderers cut by 60% s/ 2012; violent crime down another 40%. But the reason is not why you think; the pre-2012 force was 2/3rds black, unionized and averaged 180k in salary/bennies per member; the new force is 60% white, run by the county and averages 100k in salaries/bennies per cop. In addition the amount of patrols have tripled as they “community” police v. doing not much pre-2012.

    It does indicate the amount of sheer effort required to babysit a completely tragic community; Camden generated $25M in property taxes and required an additional $125M from the state to balance their books in 2012 (which precipitated the change more than anything to a county policing model).

    The joke is disbanding the PD worked, but only because they changed the nature of the police department and its character to a very high effort model. I am not sure that what Camden did is repeatable elsewhere.

    ——

    Justice Kennedy – who decreed the change in legal marriage – was another Republican choice for whom young Mr. Kavanaugh clerked before helping President Cheney with the Patriot Act to earn his first robe on the Swampville Circuit. Chief Justice Roberts was the one who nailed down Big Sickness for the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.

    Like the “federal” elections held every November in even-numbered years and the 5-4 decrees of the Court, the nail-biting confirmation hearings are another part of the show that keeps people gulled into accepting that so many things in life are to be run by people in Washington. Mr. Buchanan for years has been proclaiming each The Most Important Ever.

    I’m still inclined to the notion that the Constitution was intended, at least by some of its authors and supporters, to create a limited national government. But even by the time of Marbury, those entrusted with the powers have arrogated the authority to redefine them. In my lifetime, the Court exists to deal with hot potato social issues in lieu of the invertebrate Congress, to forebear (along with the invertebrate Congress) the warmongering and other “foreign policy” waged under auspices of the President, and to dignify the Establishment’s shepherding and fleecing of the people.

    Why should a robed, unelected politician be redefining marriage? Entrusted to enforce the Constitutional limitations on the others? Sure, questions like these are posed from time to time in a dissenting Justice’s opinion, but that ends the discussion other than in the context of replacing old Justice X with middle-aged Justice Y. Those of us outside the Beltway are told to tune in and root Red. And there are pom pom shakers and color commentators just like Mr. Buchanan for Team Blue.

During that time, we all felt free from muggings, extortion: as long as we stayed clear of communism/capitalism drama.
    I returned in 2003 to make my home and what a difference.
    The Human Rights commissions of the 1980’s emasculated the police and security forces. First came gangland fighting: Barrio 18 versus MS-13. Then organized extortion enforced by contract murder. Now entire neighborhoods are under control of these two gangs. Families are not permitted to move to a rival gang’s territory. Folks are not allowed to wear certain clothing, especially with numbers 13 or 18. Executions are brutal and even take place inside a church during Sunday service.
    For those in the United States wanting to defund police budgets; what they are going to have is Al Capone style vigilante law. It ain’t pretty. Firefights will be common as they are here on some days.
    On the other hand, if the police are continued to be militarized as they were here in El Salvador during the 1980’s more riots are going to take place.
    Racism has nothing to do with violence here as this is a homogenous society. Anti-slavery laws hundreds of years ago made El Salvador practically the only Latin American country with no African presence.
    I urge Americans to do whatever it takes to not have a Salvadoran style feudal society where police have to wear ski masks, can’t even tell their friends and neighbors their line of work for fear their kids will be targeted.
    As a closing remark El Salvador has one of the highest homicide rates, (if not the highest) in the world all because of good intentions run riot: President Jimmy Carter’s crusade to curve human rights abuse.

  83. ‘Forever War’

    Hitler spoke of the “war in the East” as something which future generations would grapple with, like a low intensity frontier conflict which would simmer while his beloved Europe would enjoy the fruits of peace.

    In middle eastern culture, they talk of the lands of war (Dar al-Harb) and the lands of peace (Dar al-Islam). This was supposed to be the Islamic caliphate verses the infidel territories. The notion of dividing the world into zones with and without conflict bears scrutiny by those who would be statesmen.

    Western countries are being deliberately transformed into Forever War zones, while other countries (Israel, China, for example) seek peace through ethnic and cultural dominance within defined borders, effectively pushing ‘the lands of conflict’ to other regions.

    A Western plan to make our homelands peaceful again will take visionary leadership and an iron will, and bring us into conflict with those who wish us to be forever the ‘lands of war’.

    This is a level of insanity that is very hard for me to process…..kneeling to destructive chimps….

    I’m still in a state of disbelief. I predicted about two years ago that at some point it would be de facto illegal to arrest and jail blacks even for serious crimes and that’s coming to fruition far sooner than I ever thought possible.

    The destruction of a people’s icons and history is most definitely a prelude tot physical genocide. Even though some innocent blacks got caught up in the maw of the nationwide rioting we were just treated to was in actuality an anti-white pogram. And as our demographics continue to change for the worse and with Jewish influence in our political system and Jewish commissars in control of legacy media and social media we can expect anti-white pogroms to increase in frequency and intensity.

    The knee helped some.

    Was it a ‘public execution’? No, them words are too strong for what really happened.

    Was it sadistic? Well, some cops do savor their power over others.

    It seems more like criminal negligence because, at the time, Floyd was too pacified and powerless to deserve so much pressure on his neck.

    He probably died more from drugs and other issues, but the knee was certainly a co-morbidity.

    No, it wasn’t because they replaced expensive black cops with less expensive white cops in Camden that crime rates dropped. Rather, it has been a number of reforms starting with this fundamental approach–productive dialogue between police, community leaders, and community members. And the city is safer at the neighborhood level since police shuttered open-air drug markets in large part by flooding the streets with “beat cops”.

    “I am not sure that what Camden did is repeatable elsewhere.”

    Of course community-first police initiatives are repeatable. Just tailor it to suit your needs. Look at de-escalation training in Miami-Dade County, which has reduced the number of police shootings of mentally ill individuals.

    ‘Looting’ is not exactly the right word but I get the drift. Unfortunately, excessive government taking by civil employees is not reserved to cops. Government employees of all stripes (many of whom are represented by unions) routinely award themselves wage increases as well as other perks and benefits. It’s what they do. They enjoy monopoly power. There’s little accountability. They don’t even need to balance their books or turn a profit.

    “There also aren’t enough qualified POC to fulfill open police positions. This of course never enters the mainstream conversation. It’s not like Chicago or Minneapolis want that many White cops. They would much rather hire Blacks or Hispanics.”

    We saw the results in Minneapolis when the affirmative action hire, lesbian, American-Indian, hijab wearing, Chief of Police fast-tracked the unqualified Black/Muslim Somali, Mohamad Noor, into the job of a policeman, a job he’d never have qualified for if he had had white skin. It didn’t take Mohamad too long before he murdered a pretty, petite, White Australian woman, Justine Damond, who had called 911, the call policeman Mohamad Noor was responding too. The affirmative action hire Minneapolis Chief of Police immediately resigned after this ridiculous shooting and Noor was convicted of murder but Justine Damond is still dead and the $20,000,000 Minneapolis payout to Justine’s Australian family can’t be used to buy her life back.

    As White policemen across America are vilified, doxxed, and attacked with bottles and stones they’ll be leaving the police force in droves. The Democratically controlled cities, where White policemen are hated most, will use this opportunity to replace these departing White policemen with policemen of color who will be less qualified than those they are replacing and who will do a worse job of policing and, consequently, more police mistakes will be make, a lot more.

    If people think that Derek Chauvin, the White cop whose knee was on George Floyd’s neck, is a terrible cop just wait and see who he’s replaced with. I’d rather have, as a cop, Derek Chauvin with his knee on a 6’6″, drugged-up, violent criminal’s neck while making an arrest (and have as a result this criminal dying of a heat attack during his arrest) than have a jumpy cop like Mohamad Noor pulling his pistol and blowing away petite, women who call 911.

    I don’t like street cops because they are useless to the society and are the first order of bullies the gov’t uses to crush dissent and enforce their fatwas. Street cops support their salaries by being highwaymen handing out tickets for victimless crimes invented by gov’t to milk the citizenry.

    Since you are so adamant that street cops serve a useful purpose, I asked you to supply some example to bolster your case. I noticed in your dissertation that no such examples were provided. I ask you again to provide some evidence that street cops fight crime or do anything useful for the society.

    I’m of the opinion that I alone can defend myself because I’m the only person besides the criminal involved at an incident while the street cops are handing out tickets or murdering people themselves. I therefore have the right, regardless of law, to any weapon I chose to help me in that endeavor. Therefore, I want an end to the fraud that the street cop represents and laws changed to allow adults to arm themselves AND to be able to defend themselves with deadly force if necessary and not have some prosecutor come after them for what amounts to self defense against a predator.

    “There was only one autopsy, and it does not say differently.”

    Sherlock, there were TWO–one by the Hennepin County medical examiner and the one by conducted by an examiner hired by Floyd’s family. That is what the source I suppled clearly stated.

    “Do you have some internet filtering software that prevents you from doing anything but shilling jewish propaganda, like say accessing a search engine?”

    It’s a pathology on unz.com–anony’s calling anyone who dares to question their narrative a Jew or a Jew shill.

    “In a funny co-incidence, a study was done on exactly this form of restraint, using police from this exact department. Guess what they found? No possible restriction of air or blood flow could occur.”

    Now, you listed a source. You get a Star Of David! You do realize that the officer used this restraint on the victim’s NECK, right?

    The study “measured the amount of downward pressure (“weight force”) that’s transferred from an officer to a suspect when the officer temporarily applies one or both knees to a suspect’s back to help maintain control until the cuffed subject can safely be rolled to his side or raised up.” [Emphasis mine]

    To my knowledge, the autopsy report of the medical examiner does not mention the word “asphyxia” at all. It does describe “neck compression” as a direct cause of Floyd’s death — meaning the blood flow (and, thus, oxygen) to Floyd’s brain and heart were cut off.

    Here is the background of that source you (finally) provided.

    Six academy recruits and 35 active-duty male and female officers in Minnesota were the volunteers for Kroll’s testing. Their weight ranged from under 150 lbs. to over 260 lbs., with most weighing between 175 and 200 lbs.

    One at a time they applied four standard restraint-and-stabilization handcuffing techniques involving knee placement to the back of a training mannequin that was lying prone on a sophisticated electronic scale. [Emphasis mine]

    They were “instructed to do their best to hold each position with consistent normal downward pressure for 30 seconds,” Kroll explains. The scale was programmed to record multiple readings during this period and to average “the actual weight force transferred” to the “arrestee” through each knee contact.

    One technique required an officer to face the subject’s side and apply both knees to the subject’s back. The other three maneuvers were single-knee restraints, with the officer variously positioned at the side or up by the suspect’s head and one knee applied to the back at different angles, avoiding direct contact with the neck or spine. The unengaged knee was kept on the floor or butted against the suspect’s side or shoulder for support and principal weight bearing. [Emphasis mine]

    ”In separate studies, which analyzed police shootings over one- and two-year periods, these researchers answered, “What factors predict the race of a person fatally shot by police?”

    ”The factor that correlated most strongly to the race of the person fatally shot was the violent crime rate of their racial group.”

    “The medical examiner stated that Floyd died from a loss of blood flow due to compression on his neck while being restrained by Minneapolis police.”

    No, she did not. That is purely fiction. Anyone can look at the actual report and see the cause of death was heart failure. You are simply repeating lies created by the jewish media in order to stir the negro golem into action to instigate “regime change” in the US.

    “No, she did not. That is purely fiction.”

    Both reports stated that the cause of Floyd’s death was homicide: death at the hands of another.

    “You are simply repeating lies created by the jewish media in order to stir the negro golem into action to instigate “regime change” in the US.”

    You are gaslighting.

    That is not what you claimed. You claimed “The medical examiner stated that Floyd died from a loss of blood flow due to compression on his neck while being restrained by Minneapolis police.”. That is a lie, and now you are trying to deflect with a red herring and start a debate on your deliberate misrepresentation of what homicide means on a coroner’s report. Careful not to trip over your nose, Chaim.
