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.

Per the media, Ferguson is now an “atrocity.”

Outrage In Missouri Town After Police Shooting Of 18-Yr-Old ManOnce again, the American Media Maggots sitting in Leftist judgment of an incident prior to the facts coming in.

Time.com now says that the Ferguson shooting was an “atrocity.”

Atrocity: noun. 1. an extremely wicked or cruel act, typically involving physical violence or injury, as in “war atrocities.”

The Coming Race War Won’t Be About Race

by Kareen Abdul-Jabbar

Ferguson is not just about systemic racism — it’s about class warfare, and how America’s poor are held back.

Will the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, be a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice, or will it be a minor footnote in some future grad student’s thesis on Civil Unrest in the Early Twenty-First Century?

A brief insertion here.  My wife happens to have a home in Ghetto Central, in a large city in Fornicalia.  She has had it for many years and could not move.  I am the only Caucasoid in the area for quite some distance, because I love her and married her.  The people here come and go.  Most if not all of the homes here are rentals.  I know that because when one family or concentration of people leaves, the FOR RENT sign goes up.

The people who come in have cars, motorcycles, cell phones, audio equipment, boats, trailers, pets, and few jobs apparently.  I see some of the women leaving on a daily basis, but few if any of the men.  The thin dude in the hoodie four doors down slings dope.  Why is the area considered poor?  Because both the city and the county say it is, and the nation says it is.

This is an area to be avoided.  Cars scream past on the street and you don’t want to be here on either New Year’s or the 4th of July when the gunfire doesn’t stop for hours like downtown Beirut and the dogs cower under the bed and howl.  The nights are mixed with distant gunfire, the sound of cop helos flying overhead and sirens exhibiting the Doppler Effect.

Jabbar continues with his article:

And, unless we want the Ferguson atrocity to also be swallowed and become nothing more than an intestinal irritant to history, we have to address the situation not just as another act of systemic racism, but as what else it is: class warfare.

Yes, says Jabbar, Ferguson is an atrocity, right up there with war.

For Leftists who swear they abhor labels, thanks for the label, sir.

A lot of black cops work for me and have worked for me and with me.  So do a bunch of Vietnamese cops, Japanese cops, Mexican cops and most recently, Laotian cops.  I have a dude whose last name I can barely pronounce.  I call him “Dr O” and he digs it.

But if so terribly oppressed and tread-upon, just how is it that the black cops who work for me have succeeded because — after all — I have the ability to utilize the Progressive Discipline toolkit when their behavior needs modification?  If “their” performance — like anyone else on the department — is inferior, I have the ability to instigate various forms of investigations ranging from friendly reminders right up to termination.

That said, I see the actual display of “poverty” every day: on duty at work, from my department’s vehicles and in its jails — and off duty at home in my wife’s neighborhood.  I don’t just write cavalierly about it, I experience it every damned day I work.  I live in it.

So for all of you people who write about poverty from a nice and comfortable distance, and have no idea what it really entails in America, how it actually exists, and what those occupants in “poor” neighborhoods really do or don’t do, what they have and don’t have, how they work or don’t work — why don’t you just take a nice, big steaming cup of Shut The Fuck Up.

Innocent until proven guilty? No; trial by media

The CNN video above, damning the Ferguson officer.

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.

Policing America: should the green shirts be exchanged for Brown Shirts?

Fascism-When-We-Do-ItI submit that is a question you need to ask.

First, watch this video, an excerpt from the John Stossel show “Policing America: Security vs Liberty” recently broadcasted on Fox News, July 26th, involving USBP checkpoints up to 100 miles inland from an American border:

I find this shameful and repulsive, personally and professionally.  As anyone in law enforcement (as I am) knows, there is the spirit or the law and the letter of the law.

A pastor had both of his vehicle windows broken and was Tazed from both sides when he refused to let USBP search his vehicle.  He is Caucasoid and spoke clear English.

The issue?  The federal law indicating “a reasonable distance from the border.”  Is 60 miles reasonable?  100 miles?  Yes, 100 miles.  As Stossel points out, that’s where most Americans live, when you consider our borders north and south, and our coastlines east and west.

Some persons are installing cameras in their cars to document these abrogations, God bless them.  This is pushback and they are patriotic for doing so.  Again, see the video above.

The SCOTUS said that travelers can be briefly detained for the purpose of conducting a limited inquiry into residence status, as per United States vs Martinez-Fuerte, 428 US 543 (1976).  Neither the vehicle nor its occupants can be searched, yet the video clearly shows that Americans are being told to submit to detentions, searches, and arrests resulting from non-cooperation when more than an ID check is demanded.

How does one conduct a brief check into residency status?  Speak to the individual stopped, see if they speak English, check for a driver’s license and/or other forms of identification.  Any prudent and reasonable LEO can tell you this readily.

What we see displayed above is what is known in law enforcement as “contempt of cop.”  As in: you have pissed me off because you have dared to challenge my authority, and I am now making it personal.

John Stossel says “big government creates problems,” and that is certainly the case here, involving the Fourth Amendment.  “It’s like living in occupied territory,” some lawful residents of the United States of America are saying.

More Americans, as Stossel says, are pushing back.  As I submit they should, particularly if they possess video evidence of their incidents.  Further, as an affected citizen in an incident similar to those above, I would be suing the federal agencies involved and then the individuals themselves because, as the agents themselves made it personal, perhaps they should take a helping of “personal” in return.

Let there be no mistake: I have been in law enforcement for 41 years.  I have worked in a LE capacity for the federal government and for local agencies, where I have worked now for 35 years.  I was a Field Training Officer (FTO) in Patrol and have been in training the bulk of my LE career.  I taught my trainees to respect the foundational documents and in fact they had not only to conform to my agency training regimen, but my personal training regimen as well, which included knowledge about the Bill of Rights and its applicable amendments.

I emphasized that arrests and detentions should be built but upon solid probable cause and reasonable suspicion, and that we do not bluff.  If the law is not on our side, then we don’t make a potential bad situation worse.  We know, I would literally say (and wrote in my own adjunct training manual that I would hand out to my charges), when to back down.

Let me submit this for your consideration: if the USBP were literally “striking it rich” from vehicle blockades many miles within the United States proper, they and the Obama Administration would be crowing about it from the tallest of spires, the mightiest hilltops, far and wide, proving the efficacy of these policies.  Not only that, the American Media Maggots, sycophants that they are, would plaster these statistics over TV screens and newspapers for days and days.

Except they aren’t.  Which tells me one very salient thing: the stats are not bearing out the efficacy of this policy.  Trust me, if these interior check points were literal gold mines of success and productivity you would know.

And as far as Representative Peter King (R) is concerned, he is wrong.  Open your eyes.  All you have to do, sir, is watch this video.

Big Brother is indeed watching.  But in this case, watching the wrong Americans — whilst purposely allowing illegal invaders easy passage through our southern border.

Big-Brother-BWThis makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to me.

This is not the America I remember from even, say, 30 years ago.

I still adhere to the age-old axiom and standard I was held to when I worked Detectives, in Theft, Child Abuse, Warrants, Robbery and Homicide: see below.

Come Back With a WarrantThat is how it is done in a free United States of America where the police respect the foundational documents, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Should the USBP exchange their green shirts for Brown Shirts?
