My library association shared a feel-good story about the library in Ferguson. And it is lovely, but I broke my personal rule and read the comments and now I have to scour my brain. Talk about blithe racism, these asshats claiming African Americans don't read or use the library have clearly never been in one themselves.

The party line is now set. Seems that Michael Brown beat the shit out of poor Officer Wilson. Somewhere along the line "there was a struggle between Brown and Wilson for the policemans firearm, resulting in the gun going off although it still remains unclear at this stage who pulled the trigger."

So yeah. It was the black guy's fault. Oh, and did we mention that the black guy was 6'4" and weighed almost 300 pounds? Why yes, yes we did.

And keep in mind that Officer Wilson "is now 'traumatized, scared for his life and his family, injured and terrified that a grand jury, which began hearing evidence on Wednesday, will 'make some kind of example out of him.'"

Yeah sure lets see the photos from the day of his injuries, injuries that apparently didn't warrant filing a report. Also where's the powder burns on the victim? Or marks on his knuckles.

Given the wagon circling why do I get the feeling he will end up in court with a beaten face but no evidence that it came from that day. Given how little the cops were willing to release right after they are either incompetent, bullshitting or both.

The cop could very well have gotten injured during events in existing witness statements, from the car door bouncing back or in the process of trying to pull Brown into his car.

I don't doubt that he got an owie, but yeah, if he'd gotten it from Brown, there would be some indication of that on Brown's body and in the eyewitness accounts. He probably just banged his head on his car door or something and got mad like you do when you bang your head on something, with the big difference being that he is a cop and he reacted by riddling a teenager with bullets instead of just swearing at the door itself like a normal person.

Back when I was in High School I was out walking in my own neighborhood with the neighbor girl and a cop stopped us and ordered me to empty my pockets. I complied and he gave me a lecture about carrying a dangerous weapon because I had a small pen knife in my pocket. He then let us go on our way without explaining why he had stopped us. As far as knew the only thing I was guilty of was walking with long hair. Fortunately he didn't order me to take off my boots, because that was where I was carrying my stash. I shudder to think what would have happened if I had been black or latino.

Then there was that time my buddy Ben and I had just been visiting a favorite teacher at the High School we had graduated from the previous year. We were walking back to his house which was only a few blocks from the school. A cop pulls up and asks for ID, which we did not have to present because we were walking not driving. So, we just gave him our names and asked him why he stopped us. He says because he hadn't seen us around there before. So, Ben launches into this whole thing about how he was the first baby born in the town's hospital and how had lived his whole life in a house just a couple of blocks away and how long has Mr. Officer lived in this town. He let us go on our way, probably because we were white and the only thing we were guilty of was walking while having long hair. Once again, I shudder to think what he might have done had we been black or latino.

I treasure my privilige. It has saved my ass on more than a few occasions.

That would account for 1 shot.

Well I think it's clear that Michael Brown didn't pull the trigger on the other, what, 5 shots? Or was it 8 in total?

Go here http://www.policeone.com, click on any article, and read the comments. Remembering these are retired and active police officers saying stuff like this

http://www.policeone.com/Crowd-Control/articles/7484388-Holder-offers-reassurance-to-people-of-Ferguson/

Quote:
I feel so sorry for this officer. He is done, finished. When you have the AG socializing with the so called victims family, there will not be a fair investigation. I'm sure none of the agents will stand up and say "no, this was a fair and clean shoot" because they dont want to be sent to some BFE field location or ruin their chances for a promotion. I've been in LE 15 yrs, have about 10 to go and I really can't wait for it to go by. Our Country is in a deplorable state due to liberal judges, the removal of God from EVERYTHING, and our so called leaders not being able to be fair and impartial.
Quote:
It is a well known fact the Holder and Obama have hired far left idologs in the criminal justice civil rights section of the AG's office. It is well known they are hacks and will do anything to convict a white cop. They have been caught fabricating information and not held accountable by their agency. The Ferguson officer is about to be held accountable for civil rights violations that did not occur with this AG office in charge. They are not interested in justice. We need to come together as a nation and stand behind the officer and if necessary show up to protect him from this corrupt administration, the worst I have ever seen in my 71 years on this planet and 42 years in law enforcement.
That is the president he's talking about (and he doesn't count Nixon as the worst he's seen; that guy quit). Imagine the distain he might have for a black kid carrying skittles or walking in the street.

I doubt they'll let you in their forum http://community.policeone.com/ to see what they really think.

Maybe try here. http://forums.officer.com/t195139/

The Talk - Matter - Medium

Different rules apply | MZS | Roger Ebert

I actually did sort of have "the talk" with The Little Muffin. Our neighborhood in Denver didn't have a park, so the pastor (or whatever, Angakuk, the religious guy in charge) of the church on the corner had put up a basketball hoop and invited the neighborhood kids to play in the parking lot. One day, TLM and some of his friends were there skateboarding and a cop had come around yelling at them to leave, and TLM told him it was "outside of his jurisdiction" and that they had permission to be there, so bugger off. And the cop buggered off.

When he told me about it afterwards, I explained to him that, while he was right, you don't argue with a cop. I told him the only reason he probably got away with it was because he was still a cute little kid, and because he was white. And that in a few years, he'd be a teenager and the cops would start seeing him as a criminal instead of a kid; and that cops sometimes even saw a lot of his friends as criminals already.

So I told him that, if a cop tells you to do something, even if it's wrong, keep your hands visible, don't make any sudden movements, do what they tell you, then come home and tell me what happened so I can deal with it. Really, I was less worried that something would happen to him than I was that he'd set some ragecop off on one of his friends. (The Denver police were very, very scary at the time, and one of the major reasons I wanted to get him out of Denver before he was a teenager. There was one graduating class of the police academy--1993 or thereabouts--that had a massive kill count for absolutely ridiculous things.)

We moved to a much whiter, much more suburban area a few years later, and that was relaxed quite a bit, and he reverted back to being goofy and a little snarky with cops again. He was in a fender bender once where a guy spilled a soda on him, and he insisted that the cop document his sticky neck as damages; and when the police tried to recruit him for an underaged drinking sting when he was 14, I was told that he gave them a piece of his mind.

But it looks sometimes to me like there are a whole lot of white people who are really really sheltered and really naive, and have never seen or experienced the sort of police interactions that aren't like the latter ones. They've never been afraid of what a cop might do to them. They really believe that staying safe around the police is just a matter of not doing anything wrong.

So maybe a little white guilt is in order. Not in the sense that you'd want cops to treat you badly, but in the sense that you at least acknowledge that you haven't done anything to earn the privilege of not being treated badly, and that people who don't have that privilege haven't done anything to deserve their treatment either.

In case anyone has appetite for more on that topic, What Black Parents Tell Their Sons About the Police.

I have some thoughts about this rolling around in my head and I'm just going to work them out here, if you don't mind.

In this year, 18 months, however long it's been since Trayvon Martin, of story after story of young Black men being shot down with impunity, there's been one conviction. That one conviction was in Detroit, and yes it was a woman not a man. I don't want to address the gender question now, but I am aware that it's a factor.

Now, I always knew there would be a conviction in the Renishia McBride case. I knew it like I know the earth moves around the sun. Because it's Detroit and in Detroit that shit don't play. I told my niece when she was getting uptight about it to just wait, he would get convicted. Time proved me right, because I know my city.

But now I'm thinking about it in the bigger picture. I'm thinking about how racists around the country took heart when Detroit declared bankruptcy. How they've been pointing to it as a shining example of why Black people can't be trusted with power in government. I've been thinking about how much people hate Detroit and now I have one question I can't shake.

Do racists hate Detroit because it's one place in this country where Black people actually do have rights and you can't kill them with impunity just because you're White?

It is NOT THAT DANGEROUS to be a cop.

When I was a teenager, I used to work graveyard shift, alone, in a fairly isolated yet high crime area. Also, I drove an ice cream truck, a crummy little step van with no door on the drivers' side, and my damned route was like 30 miles from the depot, so I took that thing on the highway. I'm pretty sure that both of those jobs were riskier than being a stupid cop.

Stop being such whiny, paranoid little babies, you stupid pigs. Be tough and brave like I was when I was a scrawny little unarmed teenaged girl.

You know how cops are supposed to submit written reports soon after the incident being reported? Yeah, well, not so much here. The Ferguson Police Department couldn't be fucked to prepare a report AT ALL; they immediately pawned off the report-writing duties to the St. Louis County PD.

Today, nearly two weeks after the Brown homicide, we've got the St. Louis County PD report. Predictably, lol. The virtually information-free document won't be supplemented any time soon. Requests for information regarding Officer Wilson's account have been and will continue to be met with a hearty "Go fuck your mother."

Should we be surprised? We should be surprised, right?

I'm not going to link you to the youtube because it's already embedded at DK, and I don't really feel like giving that channel any more views than it has already.

Quote:
The St. Louis County police officer who was last seen on tape shoving CNN reporter Don Lemon during a Ferguson, Missouri, protest has been suspended. Not for manhandling the press and protesters on live television, but because tape has surfaced of the officer, Dan Page, giving a virulently racist and violence-peddling speech to the far-right militia group, "Oath Keepers".

In addition to ranting about "black robed perverts," affirmative action, hate crime laws, Muslims, "sodomites" on the Supreme Court, "sodomites and females" in the military and declaring that the people he meets on domestic violence calls should just "shoot each other and get it over with", and seemingly bragging about killing people, Page manages to hit a gamut of crackpot conspiracy theories. He says President Obama is secretly a Kenyan, and claims he (Page) was briefed on the 9/11 attacks before they ever happened.

Ye gods, this is one of the people enforcing laws in Ferguson? And then there's the guy who threatened to kill protesters outright—St. Louis area police departments are going to start finding their ranks thinning out quite a bit if these protests go on much longer.
4:25 PM PT: The St. Louis County Police Department responds:

Quote:
Some of you may have already seen the video of the St. Louis County Police Officer speaking off-duty at an Oath Keepers event. If you haven't we are sure you will in the coming days as news circulates the release of the video.

Chief Jon Belmar was notified of this video's existence today and upon a abbreviated viewing of the video was disturbed by the conversation being had. Chief Belmar does not expect this kind of rhetoric from his officers, just like they don't expect it from him.

Chief Belmar, on behalf of the St. Louis County Police Department, would like to apologize to the community, anyone that video has or will effect, and to the other hard working officers on the detail with the officer in question because they deserve better than that. While the officer has never been involved in an officer involved shooting, the statements made about killing are unacceptable and not what we are about as a Department.

We hold our officers to a high standard of honor both on and off duty. While we as a department do not have an issue with officers expressing themselves, this was disturbing and unacceptable. The officer is a 35 year veteran of this department and has been deployed numerous times in military service. He had passed the evaluations upon returning from deployment and there was no indication of this attitude.

Chief Belmar would again like to apologize to anyone this video has offended and aska any videos of this nature be reported so we can take proper action against any officer not meeting our standards.

Gofundme.com is a terrible company.
Their TOS prevents raising money for racism or crimes, so what's their response to the clearly racist fundraiser for Officer Wilson? Why delete the racist comments of course! But the money yeah that's fine. Especially since Gofundme takes 8-9% of the now over $300k donations.

Just incase you didn't realize how evil and racist the cops are, not only is it mostly other cops funding the reward for killing a black man, the cop run "Shield of hope" none profit has stepped in so now your reward for killing a black man is tax deductible! Guess who Shield of racism is run by? If you said the Ferguson police PR director, you'd be right!

More on the White killers vs Black victims comparisons. As we all suspected, Michael Brown got no better treatment, as can be seen when you compare the NY Times description of him to their description of Ted Bundy.

Justice Department to Probe Ferguson Police Department

Quote:
The review will examine previous incidents and complaints involving police, as well as its training, to examine how the department operates, according to the Missouri official. It will look at whether the practices of Ferguson police -- and only Ferguson police -- violate federal law or the U.S. Constitution, said an official briefed on the investigation.
Seems they've had a lot of complaints filed against them.

I've been waiting impatiently for my favorite blogger, Phil Dyess-Nugent, to weigh in on Ferguson. So, of course, when he finally did I missed it because of the long weekend. As usual it's a gem of clear thinking and vitriol. I'm only going to include a few choice quotes less I use it all.

Quote:
And it all comes wrapped in the bow of a national worship of guns that has become so extreme that gun lovers seem to laboring under the assumption that if the media gets ahold of a single example of a gun being used for evil purposes, it'll be the start of a slivering slope that will lead to the permanent abolishment of all gun ownership. Then we'll be defenseless when the Triffids land.
Quote:
I've spend enough time listening to Ben Stein talk about what a wonderful fellow Richard Nixon was to know that he doesn't have a soul, but when, on the eve of the murder of Emmett Till, he chooses to use the word "lynching" to describe what's being done to the Ferguson police, does his interlocutor feel the slightest bit tempted to ask him whether he isn't a little ashamed to pretend that kidnapping a young man, beating him, gouging out his eye, shooting him dead and dumping him in a river is somehow on the same level as inconveniencing an officer of the law by asking that the shooting of a man whose body was subsequently left out on the street for four hours be investigated?

Black Kid, Black Officer,Oh St. Louis

Quote:
Officer Gore is currently suspended without pay after using non lethal force on a man who attacked him in front of witnesses. Gore later gave this same man a ride home, and didnt charge him with anything. Now, lets compare that to Officer Darren Wilson, who is on a PAID suspension after he shot and killed an unarmed man.

Gore had also requested help from the organizations who have raised over $400,000 for Darren Wilson, and claim to support all cops, yet his gofundme account currently sits at $25.

The totally impartial Grand Jury in Ferguson is now being investigated for sharing confidential information about the proceedings with Darren Wilson supporters.
Grand jury considering the Ferguson shooting is being investigated for misconduct - The Washington Post

I think it's pretty clear if the government doesn't step in Darren Wilson won't even be charged for murdering a black teenager because of the amount of racism going on in Ferguson. As far as Darren Wilson supporters are concerned 'they' are filthy violent vermin and the cops are kindhearted protectors of truth and justice.

White trolls pretending to be black,

The added irony is that the guy in the picture they stole is actually a PHD student.

Racist Rudy
In a discussion about the racial imbalance in police officers,
"The fact is that I find it very disappointing that you're not discussing the fact that 93% of blacks in America are killed by other blacks. We are talking about the significant exemption here."

"White police officers wouldn't be there if you weren't killing each other."

Yep the reason there are so many white officers in black areas is because those people are violent... gotta get a way to allow whites to kill them first!

See, that's the reason 9iu11iani spent every goddamn second of his 2008 presidential campaign blabbering and blubbering about 9/11. Every time he strays off-topic, shit like :^: that :^: happens.
