Bill Whittle on Ferguson: some common sense

Statistics:

  • In 2010, 62,593 blacks were the victims of white violence.
  • In 2010, 320,082 whites were the victims of black violence — 5 times greater.
  • Black perpetrators violently assault white victims 25 times more frequently.
  • In aggrevated assaults, black-on-white crimes are 200 times higher than white-on-black crimes.

Where is Mr Obama’s “post-racial future”?

Racist double standards: the Anti-Ferguson Event

Dillon Taylor Shooting, SLC, UtahThere’s a tale to be told, and it’s about hypocrisy.

The hypocrisy of American politics, the hypocrisy of our current administration, the hypocrisy of the media, and the hypocrisy of race and racists.

This particular tale doesn’t stem from another dimension — though, at times, it seems as if our nation is like a pocket turned inside out.  This tale comes directly from the United States of America and the state of Utah.

This is the tale of the Anti-Ferguson Event, in which a black cop shot a young white male two days after Michael Brown was shot, and no one notices or cares.  TV is silent.  The newspapers are silent.  This isn’t a page one event across the nation, spreading like wildfire.

I submit: that is entirely purposeful in nature.  Purposeful on the part of the American Media Maggots.  Info grazing tells you that.

Let’s get into some specifics, courtesy of the Washington Times:

Ferguson-like attack in Utah escapes media notice; race bias seen

Discrepancy in attention given to Ferguson’s Michael Brown, Utah’s Dillon Taylor fuels resentment

by Valerie Richardson

On the surface, the cases appear nearly identical: Michael Brown and Dillon Taylor, two young, unarmed men with sketchy criminal pasts shot to death by police officers two days apart.

But while the world knows of the highly publicized situation involving 18-year-old Mr. Brown, whose Aug. 9 death in Ferguson, Missouri touched off violence, protests and an angry national debate, most people outside Utah have never heard of 20-year-old Mr. Taylor.

Here’s the difference:

Critics say there’s a reason for the discrepancy in media coverage: race. Mr. Brown was black and the officer who shot him was white. Mr. Taylor wasn’t black — he’s been described as white and Hispanic — and the officer who shot him Aug. 11 outside a 7-Eleven in South Salt Lake wasn’t white.

Another article about the incident is here, covered by a local media outlet.

In the Salt Lake City incident, my guess is that the officer’s name and face won’t be revealed across the nation.  My guess is that the media won’t go to his home and show it on TV, with sufficient background B-roll footage to give perspective of the house in relationship to the neighborhood.  And my guess is that the media won’t show the house numbers, either.

My guess is that the officer’s behavior won’t be pigeon-holed as incredibly, terribly racist in nature, and that he won’t be quantified as setting out to kill a white young man or an Hispanic young man at the beginning of his watch.

Additionally, my guess is that the officer won’t be displaying injuries from having had to fight Dillon Taylor.  And my guess would be that Dillon Taylor didn’t try to disarm the officer.

My guess is that Salt Lake City won’t be flooded with FBI agents looking to make a 42 USC 1983 case (also termed a “1983 Action”) out of the incident.  My guess is that Mr Obama won’t mention a word about Dillon Taylor or the shooting.  Not a peep.

My guess is that Eric Holder won’t personally appear, and that the Racial Pimp Brothers, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, won’t be arriving in Salt Lake City any time soon because, after all, the victim wasn’t black.  Sharpton and Jackson only care about blacks.

Why would the media act like it has, and why would Obama and Holder and Sharpton and Jackson act as they have — with abject silence?

Why?  Because there is no political objective to be scored, and no racial agenda to be thrust forward.  A Leftist agenda, a Leftist meme of: white cops kill poor black children with shocking alacrity and frequency.

Innocent children who were doing nothing wrong and were holding their hands up sky-high.  Innocent children like Michael Brown.

All 6’4″ and 292 pounds of him.

And, one massive fractured orbit later, the meme still stands.

Perhaps one might conclude I am anti-cop.  I am not.  I am a cop myself with 41 years of service, until I retire next year.  I am, however, egalitarian in my consideration of proper execution of police procedure.

I am willing to wait until the facts come in with regard to Ferguson.  And I am willing to wait until the facts come in on Salt Lake City.  I think that the Ferguson officer and the SLC PD officer may both have had probable cause to act as they did.  Race, as far as I am concerned, wasn’t even remotely a factor.  Threat, as perceived, was.

I do, however, rail against hypocrisy and there is hypocrisy writ large and small with regard to Ferguson and Salt Lake City.

Yes, things are upside down in this country. I wake up in the morning and wonder just what new abrogation will occur in the nation that I used to recognize, but many times cannot any more.

Oh, I can recognize the route to work, and my house still looks the same.  I can hear the trains at night.  But the cultural landscape, that’s what looks so much more foreign to me these days.

I’ll state what I consider to be the obvious, though I’m sure some who read this — including some members of my own family — will consider me a donner of tinfoil.  But the obvious is this: the bulk of America is ignorant.

They are ignorant of politics, they are ignorant of the government — from local to DC — they are ignorant of their money, their situations, and how they are so readily manipulated and malleable.  Americans are mostly a good and generous people, but they can be brain-glazingly stupid about the reality that surrounds them every day.  And now, their beaks immersed in their smart phones and their tablets, their navel-gazing has become not just astounding but overpowering.  Many Americans — literally — do not see what is occurring around themselves.

Americans have been too ignorant for too long and the politicians are ensuring their ignorance is fueled for longer and longer periods of time.

But it is unsustainable. The ignorance is unsustainable, the money is unsustainable, the trend of More For Free is unsustainable.

We have set ourselves up for either a new Hitler, or some sort of a civil war.

I don’t see how we can avoid it. There WILL be an astounding crash; I just don’t know when.

This is an ongoing tale of hypocrisy, a tale that will never end, at least for the foreseeable future.

More evidence: Michael Brown beat the Fergusion police officer?

Ferguson MO Riots CartoonA source inside the department, reported, by Fox News, believes so:

Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source

by Hollie McKay

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department’s top brass told FoxNews.com.

“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said.

“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move,” the source said. “They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.”

The source claims that there is “solid proof” that there was a struggle between Brown and Wilson for the policeman’s firearm, resulting in the gun going off – although it still remains unclear at this stage who pulled the trigger. Brown started to walk away according to the account, prompting Wilson to draw his gun and order him to freeze. Brown, the source said, raised his hands in the air, and turned around saying, “What, you’re going to shoot me?”

At that point, the source told FoxNews.com, the 6-foot-4, 292-pound Brown charged Wilson, prompting the officer to fire at least six shots at him, including the fatal bullet that penetrated the top of Brown’s skull, according to an independent autopsy conducted at the request of Brown’s family.

Some statistics:

  • In 2012, there was some 12 million arrests in the United States;
  • 34,000 arrests per day, average;
  • In 99.9% of those cases, the suspect was not killed by the police;
  • 400 fatal police shootings are reported in this country per year;

But here is the statistical kicker:

  • 91% of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks;

And, of course, all of the facts are not yet in yet; despite this, the American Media Maggots and the Race Pimps have already convicted Officer Wilson and are calling for his hanging.

Finally:

I have to hand it to Ferguson PD — they have missed cues and screwed the pooch whenever possible in terms of managing the media and managing the situation.  Theirs was a primer on what not to do in terms of handling a critical incident of a sensitive nature.  This should certainly be a teachable moment for that department, and I can only hope they have learned what it means to be tarred and feathered in the media — and how to avoid that in the future.

Innocent until proven guilty? No; trial by media

From GatewayPundit.com:

DEATH WISH? Media Draws Map to Home of Ferguson Police Officer Who Shot Mike Brown

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, August 16, 2014, 4:38 PM

CNN broadcast a report Friday that showed the house, including the street number, of the Ferguson police officer who police say shot Mike Brown. The officer has been in hiding due to death threats since the shooting last Saturday. His name, Darren Wilson, was just released Friday morning.

Another news outlet apologized for broadcasting video of Wilson’s home while others have virtually drawn a map to Wilson’s house for those bent on vengeance.

Yahoo News named the community Wilson where Wilson resides and published a photograph of the officer.

The UK Daily Mail also named the community, posted photos of the officer and gave a description of the house.

USA Today also named the community and reported a local police presence.

The Washington Post named the street where Wilson lives.

In the video report, CNN reporter Ed Lavandera is seen walking in the street where Wilson lives. The CNN video shows a wide view of Wilson’s house and then pans around the street to show its relative position in the neighborhood. While Lavandera does not name the street, he gives its approximate location.

Every news report says neighbors told them Wilson has not been home for several days.

Why would the media do this?

Easy: ratings.  And the prospect of even greater potential ratings.

“If it bleeds, it leads.”

Further, “if we can help it to bleed, we can help it to lead.”

Easy ratings, more advertising, more viewers, readers and revenue.  In one word: CASH.

One simple reason I have labeled our Fourth Estate the AMM, or American Media Maggots.

Because AMM are inherent Leftists (but will publicly eschew this common fact), they believe American Leftism is good, authority is bad, and that racists lie behind every door, woodpile and police department.  All blacks are victims, as are all minorities — but even that old saw is becoming a statistical falsehood as so-called “minorities” are soon to outnumber Caucasoids — who will soon themselves become a statistical minority.  What then?

The hope of the AMM is to render some kind of “reckoning” upon the police officer and bring about a vicarious “revenge” upon him from which the AMM can quickly and easily deny involvement.

“Innocent until proven guilty”?  Not if you are a law enforcement officer in a similar instance where — may I remind everyone — the facts are not yet all in, no matter what anyone may say.

As far as the American Media Maggots are concerned, and much of the global media in general, this officer is guilty.  They plan to assist in pushing him that direction via any means necessary.  Along the way, if that officer is somehow served a helping of “social justice” himself, no matter who it harms, then those are the breaks.

Locals are saying the officer simply drew his firearm and shot a young and innocent black man in the street, who was holding his arms up in abject surrender.

However, comparing the store robbery video to the clothing of Michael Brown would clearly indicate the robbery suspect and the person shot by Ferguson PD are one and the same.

Other information, little reported, also indicates the officer was fighting Michael Brown, as Brown tried to disarm the officer — and the fight moved at one point into the police vehicle itself.

As as officer myself, I can tell you one thing: anyone who attempts to disarm me by placing hands upon my firearm will be dealt with in the most grave fashion I can muster.  If I have to shoot them in the head or crash a concrete block onto their throat, as far as I am concerned — if you try to disarm me — the gloves are totally off.  There are no rules and it’s a fight for my life.  I don’t care who you are or the color of your skin or your age.  If I perceive you have the present capability and the intent to disarm me, things will not go well for you.  I will do my level best to ensure that.

In the meantime, according to the American Media Maggots: guilty as charged.  Only street justice required.

That officer, no matter the verdict or the facts, will never be able to live in his house or the city of Ferguson again.  Courtesy of the AMM.

If Leftists love abortion, then what about this: “In Mississippi, 72% of the babies aborted are black”

Black Abortion GraphicSo, I have to ask:

If you love abortion, doesn’t that make you a racist?  Moreover, doesn’t that make you an advocate of, literally, genocide?

From CNSNews.com:

In Mississippi, 72% of the Babies Aborted Are Black

by Michael W. Chapman

(CNSNews.com) – Although whites outnumber blacks in Mississippi by nearly 2-to-1, 71.67% of the babies aborted in Mississippi are black, while 26.6% are white.

Based on data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 39,052 black babies were killed by abortions in Mississippi between 1995 and 2010.  During that same time period, 14,529 white babies were aborted in the Magnolia State.

The total number of abortions between 1995 and 2010 in Mississippi was 54,484. In addition to blacks and whites, that number also includes abortions among Hispanics, “Other” (meaning Asian and Native American), and “Unknown,” as published by the CDC.

Way to go, Leftists, you should be proud!  Purposely eliminating one of your major voting blocs in the name of your philosophy!  Bravo!  Excelsior!
