We have yet another police brutality video on top of videos showing demonstrators being also brutal as the cop versus leftists war rages hotter in New York City: NYPD plainclothes officer hits youth as he’s cuffed which is why having cameras is so important for the police. Both to protect them from false stories and to prevent police from breaking the law, themselves. Maintaining law and order is a tricky business which works best when a community has strong interactions with the police in order to have uniform application of control based on elections choosing what laws should be enforced.
This concept is simple: democracy alongside enforcement. When the Protestants in the US passed prohibition, many immigrant communities were outraged such as the German and Italians, for example. Gangs rose up and fought over territory as young hip people dove into illegal booze dives to have fun and some danger to spice up their lives.
We call this ‘The Roaring Twenties’ as the morality sector passed a number of laws forbidding things the other sector, mainly urban, wanted to enjoy. The police, as enforcers, had to obey the laws and deal with violent criminals, trying to stop things…while the police, themselves, often strongly disagreed with these moral laws!
I will illustrate this with a personal story from when I was a hippie chick who basically got along with the cops in odd ways: Once, my hippie bus that I was delivering to someone in Arizona, broke down in Modesto, California.
The cops pulled me over to tell me my plates were missing. I was surprised and said, ‘I’ll park it in your lot here and go to San Francisco and pick it up!’ But when I got back with the plates, the bus broke down.
So I was stuck there for a week, waiting for the part I needed. During that week, since my colorful bus was sitting right off of Highway 5, people who spotted it would come by to visit and we had parties.
After day three, the cops would linger after work…and PARTY with me! On day 5, the chief ordered me to leave. I couldn’t so the cops pushed my bus into this field. Where we partied even more! It was quite funny, actually.
Then there was the Oakland motorcycle cop who was mean to me in public and then showed up hours later to ask me for a date. And I said yes. We had fun.
Now on to the news: I have always crossed the line between the cops and the hippies in the past and I ended up working with the police during the NYC bankruptcy crisis to restore law and order. I see this entire thing collapsing now with the new mayor making one mistake after another. He struggles to fix his messes but fails and this failure is highly dangerous.
The police across the nation are outraged at being attacked for struggling to deal with violent, out of control people who resist arrest. The police in Texas just released a video today illustrating how ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ is ridiculous. Hands up indeed!
This is the example from Texas: A typical attempt to ticket a black man who ran a red light led to a long and very dangerous car chase, then the driver pretended to surrender by putting his arms in the air only to then haul out a gun and begin shooting: Texas cop shot dead suspect who pretended to surrender | Daily Mail Online
The policeman had first tired to pull Solis over for making an illegal turn, but the routine stop escalated into a chase. Solis pulled over to let out a passenger before speeding off again. At points in the chase he drove the wrong way in an attempt to shake off the officer. It later emerged that Solis was wanted in Los Angeles on drug charges. He was also suspected of being involved in seven aggravated burglaries shortly before he was killed.
Also in Texas, is a similar but very different story which illustrates how the police have very little time to figure out if someone is armed or not: Police Shoot Man in Car, Man Exits Vehicle In Shock, Police Confirm He’s Unarmed, Shoot Him Again | The Free Thought Project
“They saw the doors open up, one of the officers gave repeated verbal commands to stay inside the vehicle, then the officer went to brace the door to keep him (the passenger) inside. At one point he had his arm all the way under the seat, right up to the elbow, as if he was trying to grab something. The officer gave him commands to show his hands … at that point the officer was in fear of his life and that of his partner. The second officer seeing the suspect try to reach into his waistband and into his sweater as if he was trying to locate something. He also feared for his safety and once he was out of the area, where there were people behind him the officer discharged his weapon as well.”
However, many witnesses dispute this struggle, and say that the man was simply ignoring officers, but not being aggressive in any way.
The camera at the store showed that the police ordered everyone to stay in the car and put their hands up but the victim refused and then tried to open the door anyways. The police are jumpy and so responded violently.
This is all very sad but also, we have millions and millions of guns in the nation and we wish to have this right to be armed and certainly black males carry guns and use them since they shoot more people per capita, by far, than any other ethnic group.
So any interaction with black males including teens is rife with hazard and everyone is on edge and then there is the problem of asking people to follow orders. Some people simply won’t do this.
New York City has seen violent demonstrations, like Berkeley, demanding the police go to prison if someone they are arresting is killed. The police are quite angry about this, understandably, and are trying hard to not harm anyone in these riots but instead, have been viciously beaten. In the news: BUSTED: ‘Female Suspect #1’ arrested in assault on cops as NYPD supporters in ‘I CAN BREATHE’ hoodies face off with protesters over Eric Garner case
The woman is from Ecuador. I don’t know if she is an illegal alien, yet.
A police union criticized de Blasio for meeting with the protesters in light of the violence, but de Blasio on Wednesday reiterated that attacks on police officers are completely unacceptable.
“We have to denounce violence against police officers,” he said. “This is so fundamental. I said it yesterday. You cannot talk about social change and then commit an act of violence against a police officer. It makes no sense and denigrates the cause. It undermines the legitimacy. It’s illegal. It’s wrong. It’s immoral. You got to go down the whole list. I would say this to any protester anywhere. Respect the police. Listen to their instructions. Work with them. If someone in your midst discusses a potential attack on police, you have to turn that person in. You have to help the police stop that. You have to work with the police if you see someone about to commit an act of violence. Not just police or property but anyone. You have to stop it. All protesters really have to take responsibility for the larger group they are part of.”
Too little, too late. One of the people arrested this week for violence against the police is a professor who is like Professor Brittney Cooper the professor from New Jersey who is a racist agitator.
Mayor Bill de Blasio to meet with protesters as search for suspects in Brooklyn Bridge assault on officers continues with a professor, Linkster who teaches at Baruch College, arrested for violently resisting arrest after he threw a garbage bin at the cops.
The professor teaches English and is a poet. Assemblyman to CUNY: Investigate adjunct charged with assault | Capital New York. DeBlasio has now backtracked and also called for the professor to be fired if found guilty when at trial.
Cops tell de Blasio: Stay away from our funerals. I predicted this would happen. The police are now about to go ‘on strike’ without actually striking. That is, they will respond slower, be less aggressive and will simply leave the slums to fester and literally burn down. They did this from 1977-1982. They will basically vanish from sight. They will come to write out a report when someone is robbed, mugged or assaulted. But they won’t actively patrol anymore.
Meanwhile, the black on black crime rages onwards: Riot erupts in Manhattan courthouse after feuding gangs are placed in same holding cell. Gangs are on the move, getting more aggressive as they see clearly that the cops are now hamstrung by the mayor and liberals. Liberals had this free ride for years with GOP mayors being tough on crime and so, could wander about even in the slums in relative safety.
Now,that will vanish just like it did back 40 years ago. Robbery – 6XX FLATBUSH AVE, BROOKLYN, NY
Virtually next door, one day later:
This is near my old neighborhood in Brooklyn. It is not a slum. Meanwhile, shootings have shot upwards there and across the black neighborhoods in Brooklyn and now spilling back out into non-black neighborhoods. NYC thrived under the GOP regime. Now the Democrats have to prove they can keep crime down, not encourage it.
Ferguson had one major effect: most Americans who voted right after the riots, voted against the Democrats. This will continue in the future since the party has chosen to not face reality.
