The massacre of police in Dallas was, and is, horrendous. The following was included in a special edition posted 7-8-16:
Edition 7-8-16 ©2016 All Rights Reserved
All went well in last night's protest in Dallas until the very end. Police were behaving magnificently. So was the crowd. The protest, totally non-violent. Police even took selfies with protesters. Then, the unthinkable happened. Shots rang out. At time of writing, 12 officers shot. Tragically, five died. Seven officers wounded. Two civilians, wounded.
Apparently, there was at least one sniper. Although police earlier reported two. Shooting from elevated positions. Triangulating. Some of the officers were shot in the back. Although two civilians got shot, the shooter or shooters were apparently carefully trying to avoid civilian casualties.
At time of writing, police state the sniper was killed when police claim negotiations were going nowhere and law enforcement felt threatened. Sent in a robot with a bomb. The sniper was killed by the device. Police also state they have three others in custody. Other than that, very little is known. Police remain tight-lipped.
Judgment must be reserved until all facts are known and made public. Will certainly take time. A few things are clear at the moment, however. First, instead of cordoning off the garage the sniper was holed up in and waiting him out, police killed him with a robot-delivered bomb. This is quite an escalation of the use of military tactics by law enforcement.
Not clear why they didn't patiently wait. Could have drawn back as they usually do and make sure he had no way of escaping. Moreover, the problem with this type of escalation of tactics is the fact police became judge, jury, and executioner. Instead of doing things as they have done earlier in other similar situations.
There is absolutely no justification for such an attack on police, however. These officers had nothing to do with other atrocities perpetrated by fellow officers across our formerly great country. We do need police. Can't live without them. They do need to conduct themselves professionally however, that is, non-abusively and within the parameters of the United States Constitution.
Too many of them are not doing so. Yet, targeting all of them is an egregiously stupid mistake. All the killer or killers did last night was further alienate whatever is left of good law enforcement in our formerly great country. The aim of all criticism directed against corrupt, abusive, inept officers should be to seek change. Justice.
Precisely, why whenever an officer does something heroic and/or highly beneficial to the community it always leads in this publication. Always. Yet, police show no willingness to change the status quo. That's unacceptable, aggressively stupid, in no one's best interest, particularly theirs.
Hard to believe the dopey bastards who falsely believe they run and own this hell hole County have failed to date to rein in our jackbooted Sheriff and his thugs. Force him to release the names of the officers who pulled the trigger in the killing of Jeffrey Gray Wise back in April. There is no transparency. No accountability. The Sheriff and his jackbooted bastards remain answerable to no one.
The break down in law enforcement all across our formerly great country is dangerous. Could very well lead to an unwanted dreaded second American revolution already catastrophically looming on the horizon. There is wake up call after wake up call that continues to be ignored at all levels of government. -- Last night, being yet another example. Such attacks are no more than low-grade insurrection. Sadly, a portend of what is likely to come.
Yet, there is no willingness to change an unacceptable status quo. Nowhere across the country. Even the President goes out of his way to support police when such massacres occur against them. Yet, his use of language when innocent citizens are murdered by criminal officers is nowhere near as strident. This has to change. -- Despite the fact the President endures unbelievable unjustified criticism both from the law enforcement community and their bought and paid for national socialist shills in the Republican Party.
Liberty In Peril
No excuse for what happened in Dallas. None at all. As bad and abusive as the law enforcement community has become, what happened in Dallas worsens police-community relations. Remains counter productive. Could make law enforcement edgier and far more trigger happy than it already is. Worse? Needlessly discourages good cops, -- we desperately need.
The President continues to take undeserved criticism from both law enforcement and GOP national socialists, -- who have never found an abusive law enforcement tactic they couldn't mindlessly support. The President is so influenced by both he saves his most strident criticism for those who kill cops, not the criminal jackbooted thugs who murder innocent civilians:
"a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement"
Why don't you use the very same language when an innocent citizen is murdered by a goddamned jackbooted bastard in blue, Mr. President? You ordered the Flag lowered to half staff. Why didn't you do the very same for the men murdered by police in Minnesota and Louisiana? The murder of innocent civilians by jackbooted law enforcement thugs is a far greater problem in our formerly great country than the reverse.
Wake up, Mr. President. You callously pay lip service to egregious police brutality, murders perpetrated by law enforcement, and all the shakedowns perpetrated by police, -- both legal and illegal. You remain part of the problem, Mr. President. You, and your goddamned truly worthless 'Justice' Department refuse to hold these outrageously abusive, murderous, jackbooted bastards criminally responsible for their crimes.
When was the last time an on-duty officer who committed murder was executed for his crime? When, Mr. President? When? The bastards are protected, coddled, honored for this behavior. Considered heroes by their bought and paid for shills in the Republican Party. Democrats pay lip service with achingly empty rhetoric.
There is no confidence in this government any longer, Mr. President. With damned good reason. The bottom 99% are afforded kangaroo justice. The bastards and bitches in the top 1% skate. Not held accountable for their crimes. Latest examples? "Pilloried Hillary." "Hump The Rump" Trump. Neither prosecuted for their crimes. Neither held accountable. No personal responsibility. No justice.
During a massacre there usually are examples of great courage, uncommon valor. At least one during this catastrophe involved Shetamia Taylor, 37, who had attended the protest with her four sons. According to an initial report, when gunfire raked the area, she got in front of all four to shield them. Three of them took off running for cover.
Ms. Taylor jumped on top of her 15-year-old, shoved him between two cars, took a bullet to her leg somewhere along the way. Apparently, from a ricochet. -- While sick with worry about the other three. She will recover from the wound. All four sons are unharmed.
Subsequent to writing the above, it became clear the story was far more complicated than that. A follow up report on NPR indicated Dallas Police heroically protected her and her children during the attack. During an interview with her by NPR it was clear she, as most of us, support the good police do while condemning the bad. Clearly, we cannot live without police.
Remember the tweet from the Dallas Police Department seeking public help to find an individual they falsely claimed to be a suspect? The guy lawfully carrying a rifle? The identity of this man is Mark Hughes. When he got a call about the tweet he immediately turned himself into a cop. Law enforcement has a long, long way to go. When Hughes was released he immediately spoke to KTVT:
"I just got out of the interrogation room for about 30 minutes with police officers lying, saying that they had video of me shooting, which is a lie, saying that they have witnesses saying that I shot a gun, which is a lie, so I mean, at the end of the day, the system was trying to get me."
Indeed. The criminal jackbooted bastards in law enforcement couldn't care less whether or not they arrest the guilty, only that they nail someone. Anyone. This is a problem all over our formerly great country. How is it constitutional for a jackbooted thug to lie to the public, but a criminal offense to lie to one of the jackbooted bastards? Courts have rubber stamped this goddamned double standard. Hughes' brother, Cory Hughes, stated:
"I just looked at my Facebook inbox - I got death threats. You know, Twitter, people are telling me they want to kill us because somebody that was irresponsible put my brother's image out there, and we were here just for a peaceful protest."
Amazing, isn't it? Clearly, jackbooted bastards in law enforcement care more about nailing someone, anyone, than they are with the danger they put totally innocent people in. Mark Hughes stated he received no apology upon release. Would not be content with an apology. You need to sue the living shit out of the bastards, Mr. Hughes. Do all you can to bankrupt every son of a bitch involved. Short of an unwanted dreaded revolution, this is the only way to hold these criminal bastards in blue accountable for their crimes.
The man killed with the bomb by police is Micah Xavier Johnson, 25. Think carefully about this readers. Appears Johnson was indeed the sole perpetrator. What if he wasn't guilty? What if he was innocent? The wrong man? What if there were others in his vicinity totally innocent that could have been killed as well by the blast? What would the jackbooted bastards say to the family of the victims they murdered? "Sorry?" "Sorry" doesn't make it. Only a criminal prosecution of the bastards in blue involved. Held to the very same standard the public is held to.
The jackbooted bastards used a military tactic to kill the son of a bitch. A bomb. C4. Who the hell supplied these jackbooted bastards with the military explosive, Mr. President? Who? Why is the federal government supplying these bastards with military equipment, Mr. President? Why? Are these jackbooted bastards at war with their fellow citizens, Mr. President?
Is this why you and fellow Democrats remain so goddamned determined to shit on the Second Amendment, sir? ... Indeed, the last best defense against outrageously corrupt, abusive, murderous, inept government. As intended by the Founders. The jackbooted bastards in blue need to be reined in by the federal government. Including the Dallas Police Department.
They chose to be judge, jury, and executioner after cornering the sniper. Should have had patience. Waited him out as police used to do. If he came out firing, police could have certainly easily killed him, pumping round after round into his lifeless body until they were absolutely sure he was dead. Cowardice at its worst. Abject gutlessness. Certainly, a tactic available should he have come out firing. How the hell could a lone gunman threaten an enormous armada of heavily-armed, military-supplied police surrounding him? How? The excuses made by the Chief, the Mayor, and others ring achingly hollow.
Yet, where is public protest? Wake up, readers. Too afraid to peacefully challenge corrupt, abusive, inept authority? What if the bastard was innocent, a family member of yours? What if innocent others were killed, including one of your family members, the jackbooted bastards in law enforcement were not even aware of in the vicinity of the bomb? Think that couldn't have happened? Won't happen in the future if the goddamned jackbooted bastards in blue continue to use C4? Wake up.
Again, "sorry" just doesn't make it. Collateral damage is bullshit. Egregiously unacceptable use of force by the jackbooted bastards in blue on their fellow citizens. This is not supposed to be a goddamned war zone. A military free-fire zone where anything goes. Law enforcement is demonstrably gutless. Falsely believes the ends justify the means. Have resorted to military tactics. An "us against them" mentality. Things have to change.
Peter W. Singer opined on CNN:
"Did the Dallas Police do the right thing? I'm not going to second guess them. The information isn't all in, emotions are high, and the best judges of that are going to be experts on SWAT team tactics and lawyers that specialize in police use of force issues. In no way, shape, or form is any of this a condemnation. Indeed, it is the opposite. My reaction is similar to the one I had to the case mentioned above in Iraq; I wasn't there, but can certainly understand and, even more, empathize with what the people on the scene decided to do. At the same time, my analytic side can recognize that this is a big issue that has provoked debate."
Is that right? You won't second guess? Won't condemn the bombing? That's the problem. No one questions. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. You weren't there so you give the jackbooted bastards the benefit of the doubt? Consequently, the jackbooted bastards in blue continue to murder the innocent. No one will rein them in. Continue to grant them carte blanche. As you do, you hopelessly clueless son of a bitch. It's not you needlessly doing the dying, is it?
Let them do as they please. ... Right, you fascist son of a bitch? Usually, with impunity. This has to change. Why? Are you blind? Don't see what's happening in the streets? All the protests. Across the country. All the civil disobedience. Arrests. Increased violence. Exponential increase in the division within our formerly great country. More dead innocent men. Amidst all this, you won't second guess police tactics? Wake up. Aggressive stupidity is unbecoming. Highly contagious.
Regarding the use of a bomb to kill the sniper, Dallas Police Chief David Brown still fails to get it:
"I'd do it again. I'd do it again to save our officers lives."
You cowardly, lying, self-serving son of a bitch. That's goddamned bullshit, Chief. You're out of your mind. You've become part of the problem. Too goddamned gutless to cordon off the area and out wait the perpetrator? This isn't a war zone you jackbooted bastard. It's a city with problems that haven't been addressed.
You're right. Police are indeed called upon to deal with societal problems not created by law enforcement. That must change. Still no excuse to use a military tactic in a city neighborhood. You continue to perpetrate such shit, eventually you'll murder an innocent 'suspect.' Murder innocent civilians you didn't even know were there. This is the problem with jackbooted bastards in law enforcement becoming judge, jury, and executioner. You don't know that Chief? That uninformed? Or, is it the aggressively stupid, achingly self-serving 'police mentality'?
It's also achingly aggressively stupid to bait protesters into joining the Dallas Police Department, Chief. Why would they wish to become a part of the problem? A problem the bastards in blue have absolutely no intention of solving. Worse, it's beside the point. Why would they want to join the force when there is absolutely no willingness to hold murderous officers accountable for their crimes? Don't have to remind you, Chief, officers who murder on the job are seldom prosecuted. Hardly ever convicted when prosecuted. When was the last time a cop who murdered on the job was executed, sir? When?
The aggressive stupidity is certainly spreading. Regarding the use of bombing a 'suspect' CBS reports:
"Fifty-four-year veteran police chief Dan Montgomery says it's not a bad thing. He calls the Dallas deployment against Johnson "genius," and compares its use to a high-tech version of sniper fire.
"If you've got a robot that has C4 explosives, someone's got to detonate that, so it's the same as pulling a trigger," he said."
The hell it is. This clueless sad sack of shit doesn't get it. Ignores unintended consequences that could amount to the murder of an innocent 'suspect,' and other innocent civilians that could be victimized by the blast. Instead, this clueless, Aryan arrogant piece of shit remains impressed with himself and military tactics now used by the jackbooted goons in blue. This man is a fool. Has no business being a cop. Remains achingly unfit for duty.
Clearly, this piece of crap has no problem with police being judge, jury, and executioner. This outrageous piece of human excrement has clearly falsely sworn to protect and defend the United States Constitution. Jackbooted bastards who think like him have no place in policing. Are not qualified. Remain an exigent threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. Readers, you're being bamboozled by these criminal sons of bitches.
Pitiful. Goddamned galling. Yet, there is no change. No change in tactics. Despite the fact unrest is exponentially growing, increasingly violent. Insurrection that could turn into unwanted dreaded full-fledged revolution. Yet, the idiots in policing haven't a clue. Nor does most of the public. Simply don't get it. Continue to make excuses for their jackbooted in blue who murder on the job. A goddamned fascist police-state. Nazi America. The Fourth Reich.
As stated above, police now believe Johnson was the sole gunman. Three others were held for hours and subjected to the same abuse or worse that was afforded Mr. Hughes. If in fact true, all four people should sue the living shit out of the Dallas Police Department, the City of Dallas, and the jackbooted thugs responsible for abusing and lying to them. Things must change.
Otherwise, what appears to be minor insurrection could turn into a full-fledged unwanted dreaded second American revolution. No one says it better than Marq Claxton. Mr. Claxton is a former New York City police detective and currently director of the Black Law Enforcement Alliance. Speaking to the CBS Evening News, Claxton eloquently opined:
"We failed to really learn lessons from history. It's not just about these individual two cases now, it's about the history, a pattern of cases that have happened over the last several decades.
"We can no longer operate under this militarized, quota-driven, heavy-handed enforcement model.
"It's time to reform policing and incorporate some really serious public safety, public service, community-based models.
"There are thousands of police officers across this country who are desperately hoping for comprehensive reform."
Indeed. There have to be. Can't believe every goddamned one of them is a jackbooted thug. Can't possibly be. Courageous officers still on the job, as well as others retired like Mr. Claxton, need to step up. Force change. How can good cops remain cowardly silent? Embrace an outrageously corrupt, abusive, gutless, miserably-failed Blue Wall?
As stated repeatedly in this publication, it's time for creation of a new federal agency that would only investigate, prosecute, and try criminal officers in a court dedicated only to prosecution of law enforcement offenders. Investigators, prosecutors, and judges would have to be very carefully vetted. To ensure they are not already in the pocket of law enforcement.
Not to be outdone, "Hump The Rump" Trump had to put in his two cents:
"Last night’s horrific execution-style shootings of 12 Dallas law enforcement officers – five of whom were killed and seven wounded - is an attack on our country. It is a coordinated, premeditated assault on the men and women who keep us safe."
The hell it is, Mr. Trump. It's an attack on jackbooted law enforcement that continues to insist on murdering innocent citizens, many of them black. You don't know that, you hopelessly ignorant son of a bitch? Not, however, that this excuses the murder of Dallas police officers. It doesn't.
Especially since the officers attacked were not the same ones responsible for all these murders perpetrated by their hopelessly criminal brother bastards in blue. Nor does it justify the murder of any officers in Dallas. Nor anywhere else. Nor is it an excuse. It is, however, the reason why these officers were savagely murdered. It is critical we understand this. Otherwise, the savagery won't end. Ignorance isn't bliss. It directly causes the f--king to continue unabated.
The officers who murder innocent citizens don't keep anyone safe, Mr. Trump. They kill, maim, shake down, loot, abuse innocent citizens. You don't know that? Too ignorant? Too uninformed? Or, as a member of the top 1% of the food chain you simply don't give a shit about the bottom 99? It's amazing how aggressively stupid, achingly ignorant you and "Pilloried Hillary" remain.
Sadly, police have their panties in a wad over the fact 25 officers have been killed so far this year. Yes, this is horrendous. Unacceptable. It conveniently ignores the fact, however, far more innocent citizens have been murdered by the jackbooted bastards in law enforcement during the very same time span. The problem is the fact no one knows for sure because the federal government does not mandate by law all police agencies report such statistics.
The requirement is voluntary. Consequently, jackbooted law enforcement can hide the atrocities it commits with impunity. ... And does. Like the outrageously corrupt, abusive, inept Llano County Sheriff and his jackbooted goons. ... Right, Sheriff? TL? Already over 500 people have been killed by police this year so far in our formerly great country according to The Washington Post. Think all the dead were criminals? Truly believe it? If so, there is ocean front in Arizona and a bridge in Brooklyn you may be interested in.
People in Congress simply still don't get it. The following is from the most recent newsletter from Texas Rep. Rep. Mike Conaway, 11th District:
"July 8, 2016
"Pray for Dallas
"My heart breaks for the 5 officers killed in Dallas last night, their families, and the entire police department as they grieve this terrible loss. Please keep the people of Dallas in your prayers.
"Early news reports about the shooter's motives are incredibly disturbing. However, at this time it's important to rally around the families while we let law enforcement officials fully investigate this heinous act. Upon conclusion of their investigation, justice should be thorough and swift."
Wake up, Congressman. Where the hell is your concern for the two most recent victims murdered by out of control police in Louisiana and Minnesota? Your silence is deafening. Your fellow citizens are being murdered by clueless, gutless, jackbooted sons of bitches in law enforcement and you don't give a shit? You're a worthless, self-serving piece of crap, Congressman. Securely clamped on the taxpayer tit. A disgrace.
Not to be outdone consider the following excerpt of the most recent newsletter received from Sen. Ted "Screws Loose" Cruz:
"July 8, 2016
"Today, our nation is grieving. Last night was a horrifying display, and all of us simply watched in horror as police officers, who risk their lives keeping us safe, who rush into dangerous situations, found themselves targeted for murder."
The same question is directed to you, Senator. Where the hell is your concern for all the innocent citizens who continue to be murdered by the bastards in blue?
Regarding the President, NBC reports:
"America is "not as divided as some have suggested," President Barack Obama said Saturday, after a "painful" week of police shootings of black men across the nation and an ambush on the Dallas Police Department.
"Americans of all races and all backgrounds are rightly outraged by the inexcusable attacks on police, whether it's in Dallas or anywhere else. That includes protesters, it includes family members who have grave concerns about police conduct," Obama said from Warsaw, Poland, where he was speaking after a NATO summit."
Mr. President? Wake up. The country is "not as divided as some have suggested?" Have you lost your mind, sir? Sugar coating division that could possibly lead to the seemingly inevitable? -- An unwanted dreaded second American revolution already catastrophically looming on the horizon? What could you possibly be thinking? Nero fiddled as Rome burned. Aren't you figuratively doing the same, sir?
Amazing your use of exceptionally strident language whenever the bastards in blue endure a catastrophe. Yet, when an innocent citizen is murdered by these very same jackbooted bastards your language remains empty, conciliatory, meaningless. Is that because you and your totally worthless 'Justice' Department remain unwilling to force desperately needed change?
Afraid to offend your corporate masters who run and own you, sir? Your place in history is already marred because of your egregious failure to take on the goddamned Nazi Right and its corporate masters. You engage in empty rhetoric, Mr. President. Apparently, ludicrously, cluelessly believe if you sound cool, calm, collected, achingly professorial all will be all right in the end. Wake up, Mr. President. It won't. Nor will your place in history.
The President opined:
“Whenever those of us who are concerned about failures of the criminal justice system attack police, you are doing a disservice to the cause.”
Yes, Mr. President. Indeed, you're right. They are. There is, however, a problem with all your rhetoric, sir. The problem is that it is just that, empty rhetoric. There has been no desperately needed reform in police tactics, training, mentality, and philosophy. The jackbooted bastards indeed continue to be militarized. Do as they please. With impunity. Remain gutlessly protected from any accountability by shills like you, Mr. President and your henchmen. Now, they're using C4 to deliberately kill perpetrators. That's goddamned outrageous.
An escalation that will lead precisely to what no one wants. More violence directed at police. More violence from police directed at not only 'suspects,' but innocent civilians targeted by the bastards in blue. Or get caught in a C4 blast or crossfire between the alleged perpetrator and the bastards in blue. It's time to prosecute murderous, abusive, corrupt, thieving cops. Not coddle them as you and your stooges in the 'Justice' Department continue to lamely do. The President opines:
“I’d like all sides to listen to each other.”
Are you kidding, Mr. President? Again, that's empty rhetoric. Trite. Galling. Appalling. Achingly meaningless bullshit. Designed to cover your ass politically and intentionally obfuscate the problem and desperately needed solutions to the atrocities committed by the bastards in blue. When will you advocate murderous cops be prosecuted, sir?
There is no other solution. Yet, criminal officers are seldom prosecuted. Even less frequently, convicted. This has to change. Otherwise, things will further deteriorate in our formerly great country, Mr. President. You don't know that, sir? ... Or, don't you care? You remain sheltered, cloistered, in a gilded cage called the White House.
Have no clue how the bottom 99% live, function, struggle to make it from one day to the next. Remain hopelessly clueless. You do what is politically correct, expedient. At the expense of those who live on the bottom. Have to tolerate and suffer the goddamned corruption, abuse, ineptness, murderous behavior the jackbooted bastards in blue inflict. Wake up, Mr. President. Indeed, "The King has no clothes!"
As the saying goes, you can fix ignorant, you can't fix stupid. Texas Lt.Gov. Dan Patrick is proof positive. Sadly, this goddamned national socialist, fascist member of the GOP has his head so far up his ass his eyeballs are turning inside out. Would you believe this hopelessly nazi piece of shit blamed protesters and the Black Lives Matter group for the massacre of police in Dallas:
"All those protesters last night, they turned around and ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to protect them. What hypocrites."
You're talking out your ass, you nazi son of a bitch. Not surprisingly and to be expected, this hopelessly fascist, clueless piece of human excrement has it ass backwards. Wake up, you piece of shit. They were running to avoid gunfire that was not directed at them, but at police. How does it follow they expected police to protect them? Where do you get that from, Lt.Gov.? -- Your financially-portly, perversely sickening power hungry ass, sir?
You don't know police have been known to violently attack peaceful protest, you sad sack of hopelessly ignorant shit? The people are tired of your achingly perverse national socialist bullshit and that of your equally fascist compadres in the Republican Party. Sick of the shameless nazism you GOP bastards treasonously, psychotically embrace.
Tired of your Democratic colleagues who remain too goddamned gutless to stand up to you. Serve only themselves and their corporate masters. Just like you. Neither party truly wants change. They're desperate to maintain an unsustainable status quo. For totally opposite reasons, however. Yet, the end result of the jockeying by both parties remains the same. F--k the little guy hard up the ass without the Vaseline. Line your pockets at all possible costs. The hell with your oaths of office to protect and defend the United States Constitution.
Jackbooted bastards in blue are murdering innocent citizens and you and your national socialist colleagues couldn't care less, Lt.Gov.. You've disgraced yourselves, the formerly great State of Texas, and the country and Constitution you falsely swore to uphold and defend. You're no more than traitors. Can't hear the rumble, sir? That deaf?
"We have to have the backs of law enforcement. They have to know that. All of these officers ... lost their lives protecting people who were protesting against them. This has to end."
That's abject bullshit, sir, patently false. Egregious distortion of reality. First of all, the protesters were not protesting against Dallas officers at the protest march. In fact, they were taking selfies with the police. Police and protesters were getting along well before shots rang out. -- Shots that did not come from protesters.
The police were not there to protect protesters. They were there to make sure no violence broke out. That there was no property damage. Protect protesters from what? Themselves? They were a peaceful group. You're a clueless son of a bitch, Lt.Gov.. More importantly and ferociously pointedly, where the hell is your outrage for the two most recent innocent citizens murdered by jackbooted bastards in blue in Louisiana and Minnesota?
You're out to lunch, Mr. Patrick. You, and people who 'think' like you, are the problem. Remain an exigent threat to all civil and constitutional rights and liberties. Are bought and paid for by your masters in the corporate management suite. You and other nazis like you implement and support kangaroo justice for the unwashed masses, that is, the bottom 99% of the food chain. While the top 1% receive no justice at all. Simply for the most part, do as they please. By design. Indeed, skate. Convenient, isn't it? While the rest of us are f--ked in the ass without the Vaseline. The Fourth Reich. Hear the rumble? That deaf? Wake up.
See the iconic photo of a defiant, stunning, courageous, young black woman protester in what appears to be an evening dress with her smart phone recording? As two jackbooted thugs in full battle dress approach her in Baton Rouge? Uncommon valor. Unparalleled courage. Precisely, what our formerly great country desperately needs.
If you fail to courageously stand up to great evil, you get what you truly deserve. This woman stood tall. Spent a day in jail. Is a mistake, however, to bail out. Overload the jail. Demand a jury trial. Then civilly sue the living shit out of the jackbooted bastards and their government handlers for everything you can get. Do your damnedest to bankrupt these evil sons of bitches. Most important? Do it legally. Non-violently. Peacefully.
You can fix ignorant. You can't fix stupid. ... As the saying goes. Never stops this writer from trying, however. Was certainly reminded of it recently when talking to a young millennial whose pique I unintentionally managed to arouse. -- A young person for whom I nonetheless have great admiration, respect, regard for, whose judgment will certainly improve with age, that is, experience.
Has done remarkably well considering an exceptionally poor hand dealt. Has managed, more importantly, to tolerate hardship, abuse no one should have to live with. Has managed, moreover, to overcome extraordinary obstacles under exceptionally poor circumstances. Fortunately, is apparently beginning to understand reliance on an abusive piece of crap is at the very least, misplaced. At worst? No reliance at all.
While this wasn't what piqued misplaced anger, it is at the bottom of it. As this person certainly knows. Must come to terms with. Again, it is true you can fix ignorant, but not stupid. Then again never stopped me from fruitlessly, stupidly trying, however. Wasn't the first. Likely, won't be the last. Indeed, what does that say about me?
Humor aside, there is a classical recent example of this that must be reported here in some amusing detail. Would you believe armed, civilian idiots stood guard at two Texas police departments?
The Washington Times reports:
"A group of armed civilians stood outside two Texas police departments Saturday morning in an effort to show their support for law enforcement following the fatal shootings of five officers in Dallas.
"James Evans, Roger Tarrant and Paul Wilson, all strapped with semi-automatic rifles, showed up at the Patton Village Police Department and stood outside for several hours, Guns.com reported. It wasn’t long before locals started showing up with snacks and bottled water to support the men, they said."
They then moved on to the Splendora Police Department. Don't these idiots and their equally hopelessly ignorant shills understand innocent people are being murdered by the jackbooted bastards in blue? That clueless? Ill-informed? ... Or, is it simply they don't give a f--k? ... Or, is it they enjoy grandstanding, making goddamned fools of themselves.
Galling insult to injury, former President George "The Tush" Bush spoke at the Dallas Police Memorial :
"At times, it seems like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together. Argument turns too easily into animosity. Disagreement escalates too quickly into dehumanization. Too often we judge other groups by their worst examples, while judging ourselves by our best intentions."
Who the hell wrote the above for you, Mr. President? Certainly, couldn't have come from you, -- with the exception of the last phrase:
"while judging ourselves by our best intentions."
Certainly, sounds like that might accurately describe you. Especially, after thousands of our best and brightest needlessly died after your invasion of Iraq. Under egregiously false pretenses many of us questioned at the time. Undeniably, not for the sake of U.S. national security, however. More likely, for the benefit of war profiteer corporations such as that of "Slick Dick" Cheney and his former employer Halliburton.
Particularly, galling you'd shamelessly show your war criminal face at a memorial for slain Dallas police officers. Your sorry national socialist GOP ass and that of "Slick Dick" belong at The Hague. On trial for war crimes. Instead, the dopey bastards in power ignore your egregious war crimes. Gallingly, provide you an undeserved forum to express your unadulterated bullshit despite the fact you have absolutely no credibility. None.
Worse? Our hopelessly clueless, gutless President opined:
"Faced with this violence we wonder if the divides of race in America can ever been bridged," he said.
"Dallas, I'm here to say we must reject such despair. I'm here to insist we're not as divided as we seem. I know how far we've come against impossible odds."
Say what? There is indeed a simple solution to all this no one will acknowledge. The above is meaningless rhetoric uttered by a President who has no clue. Again, Mr. President when will you and your henchmen call for prosecution of jackbooted bastards who murder on the job? Until jackbooted bastards in blue who murder on the job are prosecuted, found guilty, and subsequently executed or imprisoned for life without parole, there will be no resolution. No improvement in police-community relations. None.
Not one of these grandstanding politicians has expressed any intention of similarly attending services for the two innocent blacks recently murdered by jackbooted bastards in blue in Louisiana and Minneapolis. Appalling. Galling. Hypocritical. Gutless. Self-serving grandstanding.
The President opined further:
"Like police officers across the country, these men and their families shared a commitment to something more than themselves. They were upholding the Constitutional rights of this country."
That's goddamned bullshit, Mr. President. They were there to make sure there was no violence, no rioting, no looting, no blocking of the streets. You give these bastards far more credit than they deserve, sir. The use of a bomb to kill the sniper when they could have cordoned off the area and waited him out deserves close scrutiny. It is an exponential increase in violence from a militarized law enforcement community.
Should this continue what will you say to a murdered innocent 'suspect' and others, unknown to be present by authorities, but similarly murdered by the blast? "Sorry?" Wake up, Mr. President. It's time to rein in out of control murderous, violent, corrupt, abusive, inept jackbooted bastards in blue. Yet, we don't hear this from you and/or your henchmen.
The President cluelessly opined:
"We see all this and it's hard not to think, sometimes, that the center won't hold and that things could get worse. I understand. I understand how Americans are feeling. But Dallas, I'm here to say we must reject such despair. I'm here to insist that we are not as divided as we seem, and I know that because I know America. I know how far we've come against impossible odds."
Mr. President, you're achingly clueless. Clearly, you don't live in the same world as the rest of us. You don't "know America." You live in a gilded cage. Remain too isolated to understand what's going on. Too insulated to make sound judgment. Precisely, why you can't hear the rumble of an unwanted dreaded second American revolution catastrophically looming on the horizon.
