“PIGS READY FOR THE ‘CUE”

Micah X. Johnson, 25, shot 14 people, including 12 officers, at the end of an anti-police protest in downtown Dallas. He was killed early Friday after authorities sent a bomb-wielding police robot to infiltrate the parking garage where Johnson was holed up.

Activists with Black Lives Matter, whose peaceful march police were guarding as he opened fire, repudiated the shootings, and it wasn’t immediately clear if Johnson had any connection to the movement, which has disavowed violence.

But one of the groups Johnson “liked” on Facebook, the African American Defense League, posted a message earlier in the week encouraging violence against police in response to the killing in Louisiana.

The Pig has shot and killed Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana! You and I know what we must do and I don’t mean marching, making a lot of noise, or attending conventions. We must `Rally The Troops!’ It is time to visit Louisiana and hold a barbeque.” The message was attributed to Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere, a leader in the organization.

Another group Johnson “liked” was the New Black Panther Party, whose leaders have “long expressed virulently anti-white and anti-Semitic opinions,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Johnson also “liked” the Nation of Islam and the Black Riders Liberation Party, which the center described as “hate groups.”

America on edge, police are the target. A state of fear permeates police departments nationwide. There are various and we say legitimate reasons for this mindset. Don’t be mistaken, there are rouge cops who are not part of the mainstream police units. They were improperly trained, harbor various biases and when taunted they shoot first without taking into account the consequences.

But on the other hand, the quintessential example of police doing their job is the killing of Michael Brown – a bully and punk all wrapped into one , who dug his own grave. Communities have to take responsibility, biases don’t exist in a vacuum, they are planted over time and thus far in 2016 we have seen the result.

All that aside America sees a double standard. One Black is killed by a policeman and all hell goes loose. However, 14 from the Hood are liquidated in Chicago on the 4th of July holiday weekend and it is just another day at the beach. When the holiday was over Fourteen Brothers/Gang members were dead, either by their own bullets or shot by police for not obeying orders ( we wager that “hands up don’t shoot were not that last words”).

This environment has been flamed by the likes of Obama, Holder, Jackson, Sharpton and Farrakhan. They have been rigorous in their invective, blaming police for their lot. When in fact the liberal progressive politicians perpetuated this type of behavior using one excuse after another. Don’t expect the situation to return to normal anytime soon. All out war is on the horizon and the summer is not over yet.

ALL LIVES MATTER

The Myths of Black Lives Matter

Heather Mac Donald, Wall Street Journal, February 11, 2016

To judge from Black Lives Matter protesters and their media and political allies, you would think that killer cops pose the biggest threat to young black men today. But this perception, like almost everything else that many people think they know about fatal police shootings, is wrong.

The Washington Post has been gathering data on fatal police shootings over the past year and a half to correct acknowledged deficiencies in federal tallies. The emerging data should open many eyes.

For starters, fatal police shootings make up a much larger proportion of white and Hispanic homicide deaths than black homicide deaths. According to the Post database, in 2015 officers killed 662 whites and Hispanics, and 258 blacks. (The overwhelming majority of all those police-shooting victims were attacking the officer, often with a gun.) Using the 2014 homicide numbers as an approximation of 2015’s, those 662 white and Hispanic victims of police shootings would make up 12% of all white and Hispanic homicide deaths. That is three times the proportion of black deaths that result from police shootings.

The lower proportion of black deaths due to police shootings can be attributed to the lamentable black-on-black homicide rate. There were 6,095 black homicide deaths in 2014–the most recent year for which such data are available–compared with 5,397 homicide deaths for whites and Hispanics combined. Almost all of those black homicide victims had black killers.

Police officers–of all races–are also disproportionately endangered by black assailants. Over the past decade, according to FBI data, 40% of cop killers have been black. Officers are killed by blacks at a rate 2.5 times higher than the rate at which blacks are killed by police.

Some may find evidence of police bias in the fact that blacks make up 26% of the police-shooting victims, compared with their 13% representation in the national population. But as residents of poor black neighborhoods know too well, violent crimes are disproportionately committed by blacks. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, blacks were charged with 62% of all robberies, 57% of murders and 45% of assaults in the 75 largest U.S. counties in 2009, though they made up roughly 15% of the population there.

Such a concentration of criminal violence in minority communities means that officers will be disproportionately confronting armed and often resisting suspects in those communities, raising officers’ own risk of using lethal force.

THE ASSAULT ON POLICE CONTINUES

IMG_1575Since the Black Lives Matter movement got underway the number of attacks against police have continued unabated. In fact the murdered policemen have been targeted by minorities; they feel that their lives are at stake therefore they have taken the law into their own hands; this is their version of street justice. The main culprit in the attacks is none other than President Obama.

Of the last 13 police officers who died on duty, 12 were the result of gunfire.

2015-10-18 Investigator Steven Martin Sandberg Aitkin County Sheriff’s Office, MN Gunfire
2015-10-20 Police Officer Randolph Holder New York City Police Department, NY Gunfire

Randolph Holder was killed on October 20th, the fourth N.Y. officer killed in the past twelve months according to Commissioner William Bratton policechiefbratton. So to think that there is a segment of the population that believes they are targeted by police is a complete falsehood. One that has gained momentum because of the inflammatory remarks of our President, Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan.

To rehash, this whole story started with the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The story line here is that Michael was an angel; in fact he was a bully who roughed up a store keeper before tangling with a police officer who shot him dead on the spot.
