I notice all over the web that people seem very confused about legal matters. In this particular, people anxious to keep Mr. Brown as an icon of innocent youth have been calling his assault and battery theft, ‘shoplifting.’ I find this minimizing of his crime on tape to be rather childish.
So the new storyline is, ‘He was killed for shoplifting some cheap cigars’. Which is a lie. This brazen robbery which, very luckily for the clerk, didn’t lead to his death, was a harbinger of future events. The chances of this out of control teen lasting very long on the street was rapidly moving to zero.
Before it did become zero. Now, we learn that the authorities in DC knew about this information and saw the store’s tape and tried very hard to conceal it so that the people yelling about the killing could feel justified and whites feel ashamed about killing a ‘gentle giant’.
CNN revealed on Saturday that the Department of Justice found out about the video earlier this week and asked police not to make it public. According to CNN, the DOJ was worried that the footage would spark more violence in Ferguson.
This release caused what the DOJ feared and this is psychology at work. The geniuses in DC figured that instead of being ashamed of rioting over this whole thing, that people would throw a major temper tantrum instead.
Which is what happened. But then, what is this country coming to when we have to have fake story lines, false information when charges and lynch mobs are raging? This is when we need information and come what may, the truth must come out.
Police Take Position As Curfew Nears which is only after midnight which really isn’t much of a curfew. Far from being harshly suppressed like the Eastern Ukrainian people who the US is giving Kiev massive weapons to bomb them!!!!…the rioters in Ferguson have actually been treated with much less violence.
I keep pointing out, when rioters, all black, who decided to burn down my neighborhood because of a summer blackout, were NOT suppressed at all, not even slightly, and they rejoiced in this boon and after everything was destroyed, the mayor and governor boasted about being nice!!!
When the blackout riots burned out, this was not the end of the disorders. Cocky rioters made life hell for a long time afterwards! They won! And this was a disaster for everyone living nearby.
This is the event that turned me into a fierce law and order proponent. I am angry about the foreign wars mainly because we are not protecting ourselves at home, and look at the murder rate of young black males killing each other at a ferocious rate.
The origins of Ferguson’s complex racial history run deep, and the residents of the largely black city say that most tensions have to do with an overzealous police force.
This, in a nutshell, is what is wrong. What many people living in these poor neighborhoods want is…no one stopping them from doing whatever they want to do. Which often is rather antisocial or illegal. I am for legalizing drugs only because keeping them illegal makes them profitable and degrades poor neighborhoods which are used to funnel illegal drugs to middle class and rich communities which blatantly use the poor as their dealers.
The poor go to prison and the rich go into therapy when caught. This disgusts me but then, jobs for the poor are fewer and fewer and more often handed to illegal aliens which we have been told for the last several years are not illegal aliens but undocumented workers.
Ahem! Aka: semi slaves. Blacks no longer have any function for the rich except as sports figures akin to gladiators and who live about as long or as entertainers. Otherwise, they are being slowly relegated to the trash heaps of history.
And the black collective must fight this!!! It is terrible. It is wrong, it is also fatal. Lack of Leadership Hinders Protests in Ferguson is a funny NYT headline. There are black leaders. In Congress, they vote 100% for AIPAC and for money for Israel and then flounder when they ask for money for their desperate constituents.
Ferguson unrest: What black families tell sons – CNN.com: here is another main theme being broadcast for us to digest, all about how black males must fear whites.
As challenging as parenting is, black families in particular are assuming more burdens: At kitchen tables and in living rooms, they hold honest talks with their boys about how life can be different for them and what they ought — and ought not — to do in public, especially near police.
What black parents tell their sons
Think twice about wearing a hoodie. Pull up your pants. Shut your mouth around police. Swallow your pride. Don’t drive with more than three friends. And keep your hands where they can be seen.
These are just a few examples of the rules that parents tell their young black sons — and sometimes daughters — about how to stay safe. Though stark and blunt, the admonishments follow a trend of violence that touches upon the most fiery issue in America: race.
Not a word about the real danger: black youths meeting other black youths who then kill.
My son knows he could be Trayvon
“I’ve had this conversation with my son since middle school on how to behave,” said Knox, 46, of Inglewood, California. “When the police come, this is what you do. This is how you speak to them. Do not get into a power struggle. Listen to them. If they are trying to give you a ticket, get the ticket. Because it’s not worth it. It’s just not worth it.”
This just floors me. NO ONE ‘disputes a ticket’ with cops! Ever! You take it to a judge and I have in the past. More than once. And won, too! And judges can be unfair and in NYC one judge told everyone in court, ‘Go ahead, tell your stories but I won’t change the tickets’.
I had a legitimate reason to have my ticket voided (car parked at a hospital entrance…it was a real emergency) and he refused, I filed a complaint about his ruling, had him overturned and then began a campaign to have him removed from the bench and he was. End of story.
Why on earth does a black parent complain about complying with the police? Huh? Perhaps these kids have an attitude problem? No? One father in this story complains how his sons must worry about their ‘appearance’. If they are dressing like gangsters and thugs, this goes under ‘duh’.
It gets worse. Here is an ‘education expert’ talking about how acting civilized is sad necessity:
“Here we go again” was the reaction of education expert Steve Perry about the Ferguson incident.
“We have another instance in what an African-American man loses his life because of something that seems like it went awry,” Perry said.
As a principal of a nationally recognized magnet school in Connecticut and an African-American father, Perry said it’s important for parents to explain to youths the expediency of just getting home safely.
“If you have a black son, and you’re not taking the time to explain to him what he needs to do when he’s out in the streets, how he needs to dress and how he needs to act and explain to him that he actually does have a target on his back — then you are not doing your job as a parent,” Perry said.
The something that went awry was Brown deciding to break the law and yes, this includes jaywalking. I was once arrested for jaywalking! And it was purely political, too. And there was a riot! And I made a speech while in the police car, through the window, urging people to NOT riot and so the police could not tag me with encouraging a riot.
I didn’t want that to happen, of course. What is really sad is, a former prosecutor, Sonny Hostin, says that LATINO or African American parents must warn teens about being killed when Zimmerman is Latino and often Latinos and blacks kill each other!
The prosecutor also says to teach black kids to look each way when crossing the street which is also astonishing since this entire thing in Ferguson began because Brown refused to look in any direction while strolling in the middle of the street quite deliberately.
Here is a black teen talking about how he is scared of whites:
“I think sometimes I am an African-American man, young man, why should I be afraid to walk down the street and get discriminated against because of the color I am, or the way I am dressed or the way I look?” said Crishawn Spicer, 15.
When I walk around neighborhoods with black teens afoot, the last thing on earth I see is ‘scared black teens’. I see quite confident teens complete with pants pulled down and the swagger and macho stuff. The last thing I think is, ‘Boy, they sure are scared of me!’
A group of black teens filmed this attempt by two female cops to stop much taller man. He tears away while the teens laugh and they walk very close to the cop car, openly sneering at the two women, ONE OF WHOM IS BLACK.
This is in a housing project paid for by taxpayers. These kids are not scared of cops. Nor is the young man who fought them off. Note that he was not shot but he also was not captured, either, and who knows what crimes he did later that week?
