  • The Danger of the “Black Lives Matter” Movement
  • ..."The need is urgent, therefore, to examine the Black Lives Matter movement’s central thesis—that police pose the greatest threat to young black men. I propose two counter hypotheses: first, that there is no government agency more dedicated to the idea that black lives matter than the police; and second, that we have been talking obsessively about alleged police racism over the last 20 years in order to avoid talking about a far larger problem—black-on-black crime."...

  • All very True...
  • The bigger issue is crime and who commits the crime. But the bleeding hearts already excuse the ones who commit the crimes because they were "disadvantaged" so its not their fault. That there is the biggest issue. "They" take no responsibility.

    The whole race issue comes up mainly for politicians to garner votes.
    And if you ask my opinion, every time anyone promotes someone because of their race, either way, either race, they are causing the others to turn away from them.
    To put it more directly. When white folks favor and promote white folks they turn away and cause strife with the black folks. When black folks favor and promote black folks they turn away and cause strife with the white folks.
    I say get on with it already, this is the same sad song that has run on for the last 50 years. Time to move on...

  • Your a cop and you walk into a bar to break up a fight. Two guys involved. One is standing in the corner, 3 times your size and breathing hard. The other is passed out on the floor. Do you arrest the standing giant who is warmed up? Or the guy who is passed out on the floor and offering no resistance?

    The far side of town is fairly over run with gangs to the point the cops just stay out. Considering Fast and Furious, the hoodlums are probably better armed than the cops. I even came across a cop once parked in an out of way location. During our conversation he remarked he was parked there trying not to get shot before the end of his shift.

    Back in the bar, you might find yourself asking the giant what the passed out on the floor guy did to annoy him so badly.

    So now if the people move out of hoodlumville you will wind up with no grocery stores for. . .What was it? 22 miles? See Detroit. Isn't that a gun free zone?
    Duck sucker. Look Ma. No cops. They are busy in the bars picking up the passed out guys who obviously started the fight.....
    Duck sucker.
