How many pyschopaths are there in the world? Apparently at least 12,000. ISIS is a magnet

For all types of evil.

The group known as ISIS has murdered American journalist James Foley, beheading him as if he were a captive taken in medieval combat. It posted a YouTube video designed for a 21st-century audience and threatened to kill another journalist hostage, Steven Joel Sotloff, if the United States continues its airstrikes against ISIS positions in Iraq.

The murderers, who now call themselves “knights” serving the “caliph” of the self-declared Islamic State that straddles northern Syria and Iraq, had Foley make a statement before he died.

But first the video showed President Obama’s press conference this month explaining his reasons for intervening against the group he calls ISIL. Then Foley was shown on his knees, his body erect—even proud—clad in an orange tunic with no collar, and his head shaved. Beside him, brandishing a short knife, was his executioner clad in black, his face covered, his voice unmistakably British.

“I call on my friends, family, and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government,” said Foley. He called on his parents not to accept any “meager compensation” for his death. The U.S. bombing campaign against ISIS was “the last nail in my coffin” he told the camera. He called on his brother John, a member of the U.S. Air Force, to “think about what you are doing, think about the lives you destroy. … I died that day, John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on those people, they signed my death certificate. I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope of freedom and seeing my family once again. But that ship has sailed. I guess all in all I wish I wasn’t American.”

Then the British-accented executioner makes a little speech claiming any aggression against the Islamic State is an aggression against Muslims everywhere—whom this sinister pseudo-ninja seems to think he represents. Then he begins to saw at Foley’s throat. The screen goes black for a second.

Right now they estimate there are 12,000 of them.  On a side note, they calling themselves knights is kinda of funny.  The knights who fought in the early Crusades are thought to be cruel monsters in today’s leftist historical teachings. They were thought to have swept into Muslim villages and wiped out entire populations out of some kind of Christianity driven evil themselves.  Hmmm… sound familiar?

Maybe we need to revisit the decisions  those knights made and wonder if they too ran into the same level of jihadist ideology, and after being brutalized by those men who behead for fun and games, decided the only way to win is to wipe them out.

Because folks, all Leftist feel good stuff aside, that is what we are going to have to do.  Just ask Allen West.

Goose and the gander. Holder and the St. Louis prosecutor. One stays, one goes?

I heard this and was saddened.  There is a call from the black community to remove the prosecutor in the Wilson shooting case because his father, who was a cop, was killed by a black man. So, in the opinion of some, McCulloch can’t be objective enough to handle the case.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said Tuesday that he would not seek the removal of the county prosecutor overseeing the investigation into the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, which has sparked more than a week of nightly clashes between protesters and police.

St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch’s deep family connections to police have been cited by some black leaders who question his ability to be impartial. McCullouch’s father, mother, brother, uncle and cousin all worked for the St. Louis Police Department, and his father was killed while responding to a call involving a black suspect.

But, on the other hand we have this.

FERGUSON, MO. — Attorney General Eric Holder flew to Ferguson, Mo., on Wednesday as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer leading an investigation into a police shooting.

He also arrived as an African-American who said he understands the racial tensions that have fueled days of protests that have been marred by violence and mass arrests since the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

“I am the Attorney General of the United States, but I am also a black man,” Holder told Ferguson residents at a community meeting. “I can remember being stopped on the New Jersey turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding. Pulled over. … ‘Let me search your car’ … Go through the trunk of my car, look under the seats and all this kind of stuff. I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me.”

Think about what kind of prism Holder sees the world in.  He gets pulled over for speeding, and it’s a black thing.  Was he speeding? Probably.  It’s a turnpike.

But if he sees everything as racism, and people say McCullouch can’t function because he might be bigoted toward black suspects, then if one is out BOTH are out.

Right?

Where Holder ought to be! Glorifying THIS girl. Little League pheonom Mo’ne Davis

Too much time, FAR too much time is spent glorifying and excusing thug behavior.  At the same time, in a Little League Baseball tournament, there is a young woman, a young African-American woman, who is a smoking pitcher in a world dominated by young men. I caught her last night on TV and had to stop what I was doing.  She rocked. Her motion, her speed, her focus was fun to watch.  This is the world series and she didn’t flicker.

My girls, ages 6 and 8, love sports, but we are not a family that watches much baseball or even follows the Little League World Series.

Of course, that was before we heard the name Mo’ne Davis, the 13-year-old pitching phenom.

Now we check to see when she and her team, Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons, will play again (Wednesday night against Las Vegas) and celebrate her girl power achievements. She’s the first girl to throw a shutout in the Little League World Series, the sixth to get a hit in World Series history and the first Little Leaguer to get front-page attention on one of the nation’s top sports magazines.

“A girl on the cover of Sports Illustrated for her prowess in a man’s sport,” cheered “Inside Edition” host Deborah Norville in an e-mail. “Mo’ne is wowing not just the sports world but all of us!”

We’re not just taken with how this 5-foot-4 inch eighth-grader throws 70-mph fastballs and strikes out batter after batter. We’re also blown away by her grace under pressure and how she’s just being Mo’ne.

“I never thought that I would be a role model at this age … so I just have to be myself,” she said in a recent ESPN interview.

She’s an inspiration to any little girl who wants to play baseball some day — and to all the women who know firsthand the doubters and naysayers that Davis has no doubt encountered on her path to World Series history.

This girl is class. She is what all other girls her age should be looking at and thinking “I can do it too.”

I hate to bring race into this, but the fact is while she is slinging shutouts with class, we have Holder complaining about problem no longer an issue.

Dynamite vs Dinosaur.

You rock girl.  Go have a great life!

Conflating two issues. Police shooting without justification and the Mike Brown case. Salt Lake City better example.

And there are others. Mike Brown is NOT the case to hang the rioting, looting, Sharpton hat on.  In fact, a better case may turn out to be this one. Trouble is, the reports coming in hide the race of the cop.  That’s a first time.

The police officer who shot and killed Dillon Taylor captured the incident on his body camera, Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank said Tuesday.

Burbank said the video, along with the name of the officer, will be released to the public at the “appropriate” time. He said he didn’t know if that would be days, weeks or months.

“It would be wholly inappropriate to take the most vital piece of evidence that we have and put it out to the public prior to the officer having some due process,” he told reporters.

The officer’s body camera recorded the entire incident, including the point when the officer shoots Taylor, Burbank said.

Burbank has watched the video but would not comment on whether he thought the Aug. 11 shooting in a 7-Eleven parking lot was justified. Burbank also would not comment on whether the 20-year-old Taylor had a gun. The man’s family has said he was not armed.

Taylor’s aunt, Gina Thayne, said Tuesday that police know they “killed an innocent kid.”

“If in fact they actually produce a tape, it will show exactly what happened,” Thayne said. “It will come out eventually. It will never bring Dillon back, though.”

Body camera video? And you won’t release it?  Hey, hey, why not?

“I cannot stress enough that this is not Ferguson,” Burbank said, declining to compare the two incidents.

The chief also addressed speculation about the ethnicity of the officer who shot Taylor, saying the officer is not white. Taylor’s brother, Jerrail Taylor, raised issues last week about racial profiling. He said his brother was Hispanic.

Oh, the shooter is “not white”.  What does that mean exactly? Green?   Here’s the problem, if the officer was black (and reports coming in say he was), and the victim Hispanic where is the outrage?  At least, that is how we think in today’s America, right?

Can I offer another approach? Why did the officer feel comfortable shooting a man he was not convinced was armed?  Thinking he may have a gun is not the same as actually SEEING the gun.  Yes, that’s dangerous for the police, but remember that is the job.  It is not a death sentence to refuse to comply with the police.  You may get tased, you make get roughed up little, but killed?

There have been a number of incidents, a growing number of police being  “strident” in their demands for compliance. I agree that everybody is getting that bad feeling about the militarization of the police.  The  “You do as I say or less” isn’t how I was first trained back in the seventies.  Back then we realized we were peace officers, not bullies. But back then when the police showed up to sort out a problem or respond to a crime the comments were “Good, the police are here, NOW we’ll get some justice.”  Today, we get the “Why the F you here?”

There are a number of reasons why things changed.  Arguments about us getting into cars, thus stopping the foot beat, isolated our personalities from the people.  They don’t know who we are, what we stand for, we are just uniforms.  I agree, but that is also an issue of time/distance. Not every jurisdiction mimics New York City.

Another “why” to this is in the eighties and into the nineties training changed because the threats changed.  The bad guys, even the average citizens became more aggressive and non-compliant. You can thank the sixties generation for that!  Hating the cops, and disregarding their authority, became the fun thing to do.  Of course, the natural reaction by any human to their authority being challenged is to tighten down. We were also taught not to be so trusting or friendly.  It can, and DOES get you killed.

Add the lethal threat of drug trafficking, gang wars, inner-city crime, and you can see where the police took a look around and said, “We are not going to get killed in this job! We go home at the end of our shift, no matter what!”  That led to training changes, FATS machines, and the lesson shifting from “we are here to help, it’s risky, but our job.”  to “Everybody is a potential threat, get ready to defend yourself!”

Kids coming on would be trained to be nervous Nellies.  “Is that guy a threat, or just a man reaching for his wallet?”  Sadly, FATS pointed out the guy was reaching for a gun, and the cop gets “killed” in the line of duty.  If the rookie goes out and sees the same scenario in reality, he thinks threat and may shoot.   This is OUR fault.  But it comes from our guys getting killed for no reason, by citizens who think killing cops is something good.  And that is partially the fault of society.  So, in a way, you reap what you sow.

Police work is like movie sequels “JAWS” where just when you think you can relax, something jets up from below and bites you in the ass.  About the time you think “no way is this type of person a threat” that exact type of person kills half a damn office or shoots her way out of a bank robbery or some crazy shit.  Just when you think traffic stops are boring, you read or see where a cop walks up and gets shot to death for no other reason than he or she is a cop.

(To prove my point about society being anti-cop, I just tried to Google the video- which was all over the Internet awhile back- of a black motorist sucker punching a white female deputy.  What I got was only cops beating civilian videos. I wasn’t dreaming, here is the one link talking about the incident. http://www.911jobforums.com/f50/female-officer-beaten-during-traffic-stop-19077/)

And this: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=724_1383274057

You can watch what happens when we try to do the job.

Why? Because there is no respect. Not because we don’t deserve it, but because TODAY’S society not having respect is the normal way of life.  Whether we earned it, or the society changed or a combination of the two, it doesn’t matter. What ends up is the police feel under siege by the very people who demand they police them.  Have we not heard the protestors in Ferguson, who are rioting and looting, complaining about how the police are under orders to stand by and let them loot- which is what they claim is what they wanted??

Talk about a Prozac moment.

The result, up-armoring.  You want to play by having shootouts with us, fine.  We can play, let me introduce you to our new toy SWAT and all the stuff it brings.  You want to engage in shootouts in the street, fine. Let me introduce you to patrol vehicles armed with A15s.  You want to riot and burn and loot? Okay then, let me introduce you to this thing we picked up at a military surplus sale- the MRAP, with a sniper sitting on top.  You want to play, we most certainly can play.

But that’s not our job. It just kind of morphed into it.  Again, you reap what you sow. Quit fighting us, quit shooting us, quit killing us, and we’d probably put the MRAP up for sale.

The sad reality is most good cops fear society is fraying at the edges, and they are frustrated nobody will listen to them.  We see and work in the underbelly of our nation, we get to clean up all the mess left behind by people who set policies which harm the people they are supposed to help (projects anyone?).  We also see the expansion of the decay. It is glossed over by Honey Boo Boo shows and the Kardashians- which, by the way, dominates Google searches, while the female cop being beaten is non-existent.  A “rest my case” moment.

I really don’t know a cop, retired like me, or still active, who isn’t arming up.  We just feel better knowing we can protect ourselves and our families in an event where the police can’t or won’t protect us.

If I were you, I’d listen to that advice.

Where is this riot? Black deputy shoots elderly white man with a cane.

I’m thinking of starting a new group.  How about “The Not So New White Cougars”?  We could get berets and march around yelling “Who do we want?” “Sharpton” “What do we want” “Damn, can’t remember!”

And for fun we could buy a bunch of walking canes and flash them.  Why? Because of this-

My dad walked with a cane.  I know other people, black and white, who walk with a cane. Is it a death sentence to walk with a cane??  Cane power!!

And what was the police response?  The officer acted properly on what he PERCEIVED as a threat.  And elderly white man in a truck fifteen yards away, with the officer able to retreat or take cover, reaching for a cane.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/video-shows-south-carolina-deputy-crying-after-shooting-70-year-old-man/

Canipe gets out of the pickup and turns toward the bed without acknowledging Knox as the deputy yells “Sir!” three times. Canipe reaches in the back and pulls out a slender object with the tip pointed at the officer. Knox yells “Whoa!” several times as he fires a half-dozen shots.

“It’s a walking stick,” Canipe said as the shots ended.

Knox shouted an expletive as he immediately ran to check on Canipe, who was hit once and expected to recover. The whole sequence takes about 15 seconds.

Knox begins to sob when another officer arrives a few minutes later and puts his arm around him.

“I promise to God I thought it was a shotgun,” Knox said in tears.

Before showing the video, York County Sheriff Bruce Bryant urged reporters to put themselves in the moment and see how Canipe doesn’t respond to the officer and pulls out the object in the dark. He said officers in South Carolina are allowed to use deadly force if they think their lives are in imminent danger.

“I would have had to take the same action he did,” said Bryant, who has been in law enforcement for 42 years.

The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the shooting and will send its report to a prosecutor, who will decide if any charges should be filed.

Bryant said his officers get extensive training, even taking part in exercises where people emerge with cellphones and other items and pellets are shot at deputies,

“You watch the action of the walking cane. He was hollering at the man,” Bryant said. “You can’t wait to see a muzzle flash before you take action because when you see the muzzle flash, it’s too late.”

 

Here’s the rub. IF this deputy isn’t criminally charged, and I don’t see the FBI running down talking to EVERYONE about if the black trooper talking trash about “whitey” and “crackers” then I ask where is the justice.

The white man did not commit a robbery or attack another minority. The white man, as far as we can assume did not know the officer was black.  The white man did not attack the deputy and try to get his gun.  The white man did not make Rap music glorifying abuse of women or killing.

And as far as I know, in South Carolina, the possession of a cane is not a lethal offense.

So obviously, the black man HAS TO BE A RACIST!

So..where…is…the…FBI/DOJ????

BTW- that “it was a gun I would do the same thing” is bullshit.  You wait just long enough to identify the threat. This is a case of perception.  It was not, nor ever, a gun.   But it was in the officer’s mind.  The mind is a weird place.

Why did the officer act like that?  Remember this episode?

There was another video, a horrifying one, where a deputy stops a white guy who ASSEMBLES a rifle while the officer screams at him to stop.  Then the suspect attacks the officer and kills him.  The officer refused to fire until the rifle was assembled BECAUSE OF HIS BAD TRAINING and his perception.  He made a choice not to shoot, even after plenty of aggressive actions by the man, and that got him killed.  You can hear him begging for his life before the bad guy puts a round in his head.

The police have a tough job trying to figure out who is the good guy, who is the bad guy, and who is the lethal guy.  The decision cycle is personal, part of who you are, what your training is like, and what the individual event consists of.

If Mike Brown taunted the officer and then charged him, after already beating the officer, then Mike Brown got whacked for being the bad/lethal guy.  It was his choice, his training, his background, his attitude.

Had he been white, we’d would have never heard a peep.  But this isn’t about race as much as it is anger.  Anger stoked by people who want to just destroy, not build. Anger pushed by those who think they deserve more and are willing to do harm to get your stuff. The rest is just politics.

Holder working to correct the mistakes of Zimmerman. He’ll take this one from here.

It’s madness. Some kind of blind madness that drives Holder and his ilk to push a wedge between the black people and the white people in America.  He says we don’t want to talk about it, but the truth is, he is the one who doesn’t want to talk about it. He doesn’t want to talk about how black America is becoming two Americas.  How indulging the bad behavior of a minority of thug blacks taints the entire society.   HE is the coward.

But he’s also the man in charge, and this time, he isn’t going to allow the inconvenience of other authorities clearing the officer in the shooting. THIS time, the cop is going down.  And it’s an election year, so the politics is important.

As we speak, forty FBI agents are going door to door looking for witnesses, the feds have taken over the investigation (why?) and the law and order in Ferguson is being handled by the New Black Panthers.

This just came from a local source in Ferguson, Missouri: The New Black Panthers are telling us,

“We can not guarantee your safety tonight. All hell is going to break loose.”

Three revolution groups are operating in St. Louis County now.
They want absolute mayhem.

How in the world did the police step back and the New Black Panthers take over? The same Panthers who are protesting and wanting to kill the officer, while the police (and the FBI) stand by.  There must be the small strokes happening within the ranks as we speak!

Holder and crew are working hard to control the narrative, WITH the help of democrats, including the governor, and the MSM.  Part of the attempt to hide the truth is the effort the DOJ put forth to stop Ferguson PD from releasing the video of the FELONY Mike Brown committed ten minutes before his encounter with the officer.  Why?  Because the narrative is that Ol’ Mike was a college bound good guy shot down for being black.

Which is a lie.

2014_08_12-06_40-tellmenow-53ea5f91050c6-600x600

Seems Mike was gang banging just a little, signing with the Bloods.  I worked gangs for a while.  It is a mindset.  More on that later.

On top of that, Mike liked to rap about killing and murder and all that rap stuff.

In this rap song, one of the rappers talks about killing someone and seeing them “layin’ across the street.” The victim is said to be “mashed up and black” like a goblin so “there ain’t describing him.”

With this Glock in your face

And you betta not make a sound

And I only like white men on my money [???]

Those who are last shall be first,

Whites on the bottom

He musta walked up and unloaded because there was no stopping him

Somebody else layin’ across the street, must be his partner

Damn.

Here is the report on the robbery. I am relying a lot on the GatewayPundit site. The reason is I know the people there, and they live in the St Louis area.  They have written about the HUGE racial problems in that city for a long time.

brown robbery stroe

 

Great, now what kind of picture do we have now?  It gets worse. Big Mike has a juvie record, or so it seems. The juvie record was discovered, discounted as “character assassination”, and is now being scrubbed, or it seems. Here is one remaining website with it.

Michael Brown’s rap sheet on casenet. Note that he also has a juvenile criminal record that is sealed.

Description: Burglary – 1st Degree { Felony B RSMo: 569.160 }

If this is accurate, why does it matter?  Here’s a hint, if the other side is desperate to hide it, then it matters to them.  It breaks the false narrative, much like the real Trayvon Martin’s history broke his.

So how bad is the fear in Ferguson? So bad, the store clerk who was ROBBED by Brown, and is surrounded by police, is afraid for his life.

Local markets know their local customers–that’s how they stay in business.

Ferguson Market & Liquor in the small town of Ferguson, Missouri is no different. In the case of this local market, fear of being murdered by their customers drives their business decisions—including deciding to not report being robbed to the police.

Likewise the Ferguson police decision to withhold for nearly a week the name of the police officer they say shot Michael Brown, Darren Wilson, in order to give him time to go in to hiding from the Ferguson lynch mob.

Ferguson Market & Liquor is the store where Brown roughed up a clerk while stealing almost $50 worth of cigarellos a week ago Saturday.  Minutes later the unarmed hulking young black man was gunned down by Wilson, a white Ferguson police officer, in the middle of a neighborhood street during a confrontation with the officer.

KDSK of St. Louis reported an attorney for the owners of the market held a press conference Friday in which he wanted Ferguson Market & Liquor’s customers to know that the store did not snitch to the police about Brown robbing the store, nor did they offer the store’s surveillance video of the robbery to police.

Imagine this madness, the madness of Obama and Holder’s hatred for America. The man, a working minority, is robbed by a thug. And he’s afraid for his life, even though he is surrounded by the FBI, DOJ and local police.  Because he knows they either can’t protect him, or worse, won’t.

Think about that.  Think about living that life, everyday, forever.  Think about how the New Black Panthers walk down the street WITH a State Trooper (the one put in charge of maintaining order) chanting for the death of an officer.

And nobody blinks.

That is how far down the rabbit hole we’ve fallen.

But what about the shooting.  First, I’ll can tell you, as this article by another police officer states, taking in a bad guy, who doesn’t want to go, is a dangerous effort.

As a white cop, working in high-crime areas of the city that were predominantly black, I can relate to the situation in Ferguson.  It happened to me a thousand times, except for the firing of my weapon – to which I say, “There, but for grace of God, go I.”

A typical scenario would be that I stopped someone on the street in connection with a police action.  Let’s say I came across a guy from a wanted poster.  After establishing the correct identity, I tell him he’s under arrest. That’s when the potential for serious injury or death occurs.

“You ain’t takin’ me nowhere, mother******!” he says.  Okay, whatever happens from that moment on was brought about by the person resisting arrest.  Keep in mind that the officer represents the law.  He has performed his sworn duty by stopping and identifying a person wanted for the commission of a crime.  He has told the person that he’s under arrest.  There’s simply no turning back!  Hence, if the person refuses to submit, what would we expect the officer do – walk away?

You think the streets are unsafe now?  Imagine if cops were cowed by the bad guys into backing away from the lawful pursuit of justice.  It’s bad enough that so much crime is not preventable, but when a cop is facing it right in front of his eyes, he must take action.

 

What if the officer let Brown go after the beating he took in the patrol unit? What if Brown went around the corner, carjacked a woman, threw her to the ground, killing her, before he stole her car. What if??  Brown had a choice. He could have not been a thug, a banger, a robber. He could have submitted to the arrest, AS REQUIRED BY LAW, and he would be alive today. His life, his choice, his death.  The officer was just there.

But that is not how it is going to be sold. No money in telling the truth.  No advantage in the upcoming election for the truth to be told. And that is a madness I thought we had long ago left behind.

I’ve stated the officer is screwed.  Even though the statute is pretty clear.

3. A law enforcement officer in effecting an arrest or in preventing an escape from custody is justified in using deadly force only

(1) When such is authorized under other sections of this chapter; or

(2) When he reasonably believes that such use of deadly force is immediately necessary to effect the arrest and also reasonably believes that the person to be arrested

(a) Has committed or attempted to commit a felony; or

(b) Is attempting to escape by use of a deadly weapon; or

(c) May otherwise endanger life or inflict serious physical injury unless arrested without delay.

4. The defendant shall have the burden of injecting the issue of justification under this section.

Big Mike and his running buddy robbed a store, attacked an officer, tried to get his gun (felony, felony, felony) and according to one source, a black man who witnessed the shooting, ran toward the officer after breaking initial contact (the beating in the car).

 

#1 How’d he get from there to there?

#2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck

{crosstalk}

#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him

{crosstalk}

#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus – the police had his gun drawn already on him –

#1. Oh, the police got his gun

#2 The police kept dumpin on him, and I’m thinking the police kept missing – he like – be like – but he kept coming toward him

{crosstalk}

#2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing

#1 The Police?

#2 The Police shot him

#1 Police?

Now according to the friend of the officer (the officer isn’t talking yet), that squares to what happened to him.

 

Here’s the transcript:

“He pulled up ahead of them. And then he got a call-in that there was a strong-arm robbery. And, they gave a description. And, he’s looking at them and they got something in their hands and it looks like it could be what, you know those cigars or whatever. So he goes in reverse back to them. Tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael did. And, then he opened the car again. He tried to get out. He stands up.

And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into his car. Punches him in the face and them Darren grabs for his gun. Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away. And the gun goes off.

Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”

The bigger picture isn’t this shooting. The bigger picture is this. We, as a society, have decided to reward bad behavior and ignore good when it comes to black America. That is our collective fault. We allow Al Sharpton to show up when bad happens, giving him a voice, while he ignores, and the MSM ignores, the black kids who decide NOT to be thugs, who get good grades, who strive to be better.

Where are the clusters of media surrounding the black kid who gets straight A’s?

Nowhere.

Where are the hard stories about how being in a bad neighborhood makes it almost impossible to get out, not because you can’t, but because the bad people in that neighborhood won’t let you.

Cell phone footage showing a group of teens viciously kicking and striking a 16-year-old honors student with splintered railroad ties has ramped up pressure on Chicago officials to address chronic violence that has led to dozens of deaths of city teens each year.

The graphic video of the afternoon melee emerged on local news stations over the weekend, showing the fatal beating of Derrion Albert, a sophomore honor roll student at Christian Fenger Academy High School. His death was the latest addition to a rising toll: More than 30 students were killed last school year, and the city could exceed that number this year.

Prosecutors charged four teenagers Monday with fatally beating Albert, who was walking to a bus stop when he got caught up in the mob street fighting, authorities said.

The violence stemmed from a shooting early Thursday morning involving two groups of students from different neighborhoods, said Tandra Simonton, a spokeswoman for the Cook County prosecutor’s office. When school ended, members of the groups began fighting near the Agape Community Center.

During the attack, captured in part on a bystander’s cell phone video, Albert is struck on the head by one of several young men wielding wooden planks. After he falls to the ground and appears to try to get up, he is struck again and then kicked. Simonton said Albert was a bystander and not part of either group.

THAT should be a lead story every day.  Thugs should be ostracized, while good kids highlighted.

But there’s no money in that, is there? Or power, or improving the opportunity of getting re-elected.

Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Gov. Jay Nixon (D-MO) said the local police “attempting to besmirch a victim of a shooting” by releasing a video of Michael Brown allegedly engaging in a “strong-arm” convenience store robbery.

“I think it had an incendiary effect,” Nixon said. “I mean, when you release picture and you clearly are attempting to besmirch a victim of a shooting, shot down in his own street, a young man and at the same time you’re releasing information to try to make it, to tarnish him, then properly, there was a lot of folks that were concerned about that, and I do think it flamed it back up and has caused us to have to deal with some of that.”

Or, we could just telling the truth about the facts that LEAD UP TO THE SHOOTING?

Why is the robbery important? Why is the rap/gang thing important? Why is the prior violent record important?  BECAUSE NOTHING OCCURS IN A VACUUM!!! NOTHING!!

What we know is what we know. What we don’t know is what occurred in those few critical seconds when Big Mike decided he wasn’t going to jail. Remember, the officer suspected him and his STILL NOT CHARGED buddy of a robbery. He didn’t get out of the car shooting. He got out of the car trying to effect a detention or an arrest.  So let’s go over what he know when he got out.

1. Somehow Big Mike and the other suspect ended up in the patrol car beating the officer. The officer is injured, that is a fact.

2. The officer discharged his weapon INSIDE the patrol car.  We believe he was fighting over the control of his weapon.  Big Mike might have been shot during the fight.

3. Big Mike and his running buddy took off, Big Mike told his buddy to keep running.

4. At some point, the officer gets out of his patrol car, after being beaten and his weapon discharging, attempts to stop Big Mike.

5. He either shoots Big Mike in the back as Mike is running, or he shoots at Mike and misses. (Update: according to one source, the autopsy shows Big Mike took all the rounds in the front, none in the back. Holder’s probably pulling out his eraser and then penciling in new holes on the diagram!)

6. Big Mike turns around, and either runs back at the officer, or the officer approaches and shoots again.  The pattern of the rounds look like the classic “Glock rip” where the weapon is fired quickly and the muzzle rise causes the bullets to track vertically.  If the officer fired in rapid secession, it would make sense.

7. Big Mike is down.

This is what we know about the shooting.  If Big Mike turned around, already injured and decided to give up and the officer continued to shoot, the officer is in trouble.

It may be understandable, but it is not acceptable.

If big Mike ran back at the officer, after beating him, after attempting to take his weapon (which he would have killed the officer with), then the officer is justified in taking Big Mike down. Remember, nobody has claimed the officer had a chance to frisk Big Mike.  So assuming Big Mike could be armed is fair at the time.

At this point we are just guessing.  But as a veteran officer, who spoke with a number of other officers, we can make a few assumptions from the fifty years of combined experience.

The key to all of this is mindset. Mindset of the bad guys- Big Mike and his buddy. And the mindset of the officer.

The first assumption. Big Mike didn’t want to go to jail. This would be his first arrest as an adult.  Big boy jail, and bail if he can make it. No going home to mommy this time around.  Different ball game, and a good reason for him to fight.

Second assumption. As the article stated above, the officer went from being suspicious, to being in a world of hurt immediately.  He went from trying to make an arrest, to trying to stay alive in a second, literally a second.

Third assumption.  In talking with my veteran officer friend, who is also a trainer, he reminded me of the reality of what it is like to be afraid for your life.  When the officer was struggling over his weapon, his mindset goes from trying to make an arrest- something he’s done a hundred times I’m sure- to simple survival.

When that happens the mind changes modes.  Or if you will, the mind is split between two areas, the upper mind- where logic and reason and thought occur, and the lower mind- where survival and training kick in.  A side effect of the lower mind kicking in is the phenomenon called “tunnel vision and tunnel hearing.”

Normally, during a rough arrest, your upper mind still functions. You pull your taser, you pull your OC spray, you use your baton, just like you are trained.  But that only occurs when your upper mind has a chance to process the information that is coming in at a regulated pace. For example, you approach a suspect and tell him he’s under arrest. He is far enough away from you that he can’t get to you immediately. He says “I’m not going.”  So, you have time to think “Okay, time for my taser or my OC in order to persuade him to submit.” And you pull your tool of choice.  That’s easy.

However, when the contact goes from, “Hey pal, I want to talk to you.” to the guy jumping you (at 6-4 300lbs, the size of a NFL lineman) and raining blows on your head, while his buddy is grabbing for your gun, then all that upper mind process takes a shit- literally.  And you go to “I don’t want to die, so I’m going to do what I have to in order to survive!”

Only police and combat veterans understand this. No Harvard educated liberal or talking head gets the fear involved in realizing you are in a fight to the death. No politician, no “media expert”, nobody but someone who has been there. I might add, criminals might also understand. Which might explain Big Mike’s attack.  Surprise is very effective when trying to kill your opponent.

But when the attack occurs, the next few seconds often decide whether you live or die.  It is the initial attack that must be thwarted.  Unlike the movies where actors beat each other for ten minutes before the good guy gets the upper hand, in real life the fights are brutal and quick. (Trust me, getting hit hurts! Getting hit in the head hurts and is disorienting!) Just watch some of the videos the thugs put up on YouTube to see how quickly a conscious person turns into an unconscious, and vulnerable victim.

When the lower mind takes over, it becomes all training and reflex.  That is why the military drills soldiers, and why police are trained to do certain things.

Fourth assumption.  When Big Mike exits the vehicle, the officer, who has been beaten, follows- because that is what he is trained to do.  (On a side note, his injuries and photos have not been released- just like in the Zimmerman case.  Why? If his face is swollen or injured from the beating, the narrative takes another hit. This is just corrupt.) So he pursues.  And he is shooting.  One round in the car, maybe two at Big Mike as he is running.

Fifth assumption. Big Mike for some reason turns around.  He either runs back at the officer, or he gives up while closing the distance.  Either way, IF Big Mike was giving up, it was a little late.

Why?  Because I can assure you, the upper mind of the officer is still locked down.   The officer’s last upper mind instruction to the lower mind was to pursue and fire the gun.  Even if his upper mind is thinking “Jeez, this guy might be giving up.” The lower mind is pulling the trigger.  This is how we get cases where the officer truly believes the suspect was facing him when he pulled the trigger, but the suspect was hit in the back. That officer will pass a polygraph, because he is convinced that is what he saw.

Now cops are paid to be a little better than the average citizen, and to be trained to control the shutdown of their upper mind.  That is true. But cops are human beings. They are your friends, your neighbors, hell they are basically you.  But you expect so much more from them than you would expect of yourself.

I ask this question- If a large man was beating you in the face and trying to take your gun to MURDER you with it, would you shoot him to death? Especially, if he is coming back at you? Even if you think you wouldn’t, trust me, you would. Even if you are a liberal.

Anyone found in possession of a handgun, except a legitimate officer of the law, [should go] to jail—period! Anyone committing a crime with a handgun [should go] to prison, with 10 years added to his term, without parole—period!

Carl Rowan may have cause to rue those words, which he wrote in 1981. Rowan, the nationally syndicated columnist, has long been an outspoken advocate of gun control. Then, two weeks ago, he shot and slightly wounded an intruder in his Washington, D.C., backyard. Ever since, two facts about the case have kept capital gossips—and lawyers—abuzz: The interloper was a near-naked teenager who had been skinny-dipping with friends in Rowan’s pool, and the columnist’s weapon was an unregistered, and thus very illegal, .22 caliber pistol.

This is not about race- outside the politics and the money making race baiters. This is a war between those who have, and those who want.  Makers and Takers.  It has nothing to do with race, but everything to do with class.

In the end, in my opinion, if and when the wheels come off, the lines on both sides will be filled with all colors, genders, political opinions, sexual orientations.  The difference will be one side with have something.  And the other side will want to take it- with violence.

What is maddening to me is that people who are promoting the anarchy, promoting the failure of the sub-culture of our society (whether it be white, black or Hispanic- or purple or polka-dotted for that matter) think they are immune.

Maybe they can hide for a while behind the rhetoric, or the walls, or the private security. But eventually, the monsters they have created and promote will get tired of taking from others, and decide they want the elites’ stuff too.

Just dumb.  And deadly.

This is a photo of the store owners protecting what little they have left after the police fled the area and the looters took over.

Good people from all types of backgrounds doing the same thing- trying to keep what is theirs safe from people of all types of backgrounds trying to take it.  The makers vs. the takers.

And as we see this, there is a federal judge who just ruled the weapons you see them carrying have no legal place in our society.

Upon review of all the parties’ evidence, the court seriously doubts that the banned assault long guns are commonly possessed for lawful purposes, particularly self-defense in the home, which is at the core of the Second Amendment right, and is inclined to find the weapons fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual.

No place except maybe were society has broken down?? Freaking liberals, I swear!!

But this is how it starts.  Someday, if she is given her way, the next wave of looters will simply take what they want, without any way for us to stop them.  She won’t suffer, sitting behind the walls of her gated community, comfortable in her liberal world, convinced she is more enlightened than the masses. She’ll be safe, well, at least for a little while.

But we won’t.

The police shooting of an unarmed black teen. Some comment about the reaction.

It may have been a bad shoot, we don’t know.  However, as the facts are still murky, the usual suspects took advantage of situation and did serious damage.  Honestly, it’s hard to be on the side of the young black male who is innocent of wrong doing, when his ilk run amok.

A gas station was looted, and police called for additional units to back up officers already on the street, said Brian Schellman, spokesman with the St. Louis County Police Department.

Video from the scene showed police in riot gear. No injuries were immediately reported.

“They are sending in more officers to try and get the situation under control,” Schellman said.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said that at least 20 police cars were damaged and that the use of tear gas was a high possibility.

A friend and witnesses say Missouri teen Michael Brown was unarmed and had his hands in the air when a Ferguson police officer shot and killed him, but that account is in dispute.

“The genesis of this was a physical confrontation,” Jon Belmar, chief of the St. Louis County Police Department, said at a Sunday news conference.

The officer tried to leave his vehicle just before the shooting on Saturday afternoon, but Brown pushed him back into the car, “where he physically assaulted the police officer” and struggled over the officer’s weapon, Belmar said.

The officer, if he is white, is screwed. The DOJ under Holder will get him either way.  We all remember Zimmerman, this is twice as bad.

All that said, in one of the posts highlighting the riots, I have to point out something that might make you pause when you go to judge why the police have such itchy fingers in certain situations. First, we aren’t paid to get killed by some thug.  That’s not in any contract.  On the other hand, shooting first is becoming far to frequent.  In all that confusion of what is right and what is wrong is what is the reality of the environment on the ground.   The thugs running amok, stealing, looting, robbing, and shooting at the first opportunity reinforces what the police know and most people don’t.  The film that covers what appears to be a civil society is very, very thin.

Don’t believe me, look at the photo.

Notice what the somewhat fat, head covered, pants down to the butt crack young African American is carrying? Yep, a gun.  Which is why the police react the way they do.  As the website points out, the irony is inescapable.

These guys aren’t Mexicans. The video that should be played on TV every night.

We’ve known for a long time, after warnings from the Border Patrol and others, that a number of the “illegals” crossing the border were not Hispanic.  In fact, prayer rugs and other items from cultures in the Middle East were found on the trails leading into the U.S.

We also have been warned by terrorist from groups like ISIS that they were here.  Of course they are here!  Jeezz, we are probably the most suicidal culture in the West outside Britain and France!  We let them in. We let them design our investigative procedures (look up CAIR and DOJ/FBI relationships).

But this is different.  Islam is a religion of war and domination. And wars need armies and armies need soldiers.  I’m betting here are six.

NBC TUCSON, Arizona – A cattle-ranching couple in southern Arizona hopes that dramatic hidden-camera video showing suspected drug or immigrant smugglers crossing their property will help persuade federal officials to shift resources southward to eliminate what they call a dangerous “no-man’s land” along the border.

“It just confirmed what we already knew,” Jim Chilton, who runs the 50,000-acre ranch with his wife, Sue, said of the video, which was filmed this spring by a border-security advocacy group. …“We have ceded to the cartels 20 miles, 30 miles inside the United States.”

Here is the video.  Watch the subjects move.  They are coordinated, lightly equipped, and work hard to cover their tracks. Note the pads on their feet.  I owned something like that, it leaves no marks and is very quiet.

Worse, when the last person turns, freeze the frame.  If he’s Mexican I’ll eat my hat!

But it may explain this.

The undated photo was taken at night from the Pennsylvania Avenue side of the White House. The brightly lit North Portico is clearly seen in the background of the photo.

Alongside the photo was the propaganda message, “we are here #America near our #target :) sooooooooooooon”. The #AmessagefromISIStoUS hashtag employed by ISIS and its supporters after President Obama launched airstrikes on ISIS forces in northern Iraq this week was used. The counter hashtag #AmessagefromUStoISIS was also used.

Apparently, they hacked another site assigned to Hawaii and put up more pics.  A slap in the face of our President, who foolishly thought he could deal with these people like they were 21st century citizens.

The good cops at all levels of government are probably looking at each other across their desks and mumbling “F me!”

This is going to get interesting.

“What he said” moment, but from a friend’s son- not VDH. Explain to me who the real dangers are.

A buddy of mine’s son wrote this.  The kid is a genius with common sense.  He’s a young man of 26 or so, but he is very, very experienced.    His comments should be just copied and pasted anywhere the Islamic defenders comment.  If they can answer this query, we can talk, if not, they just need to accept what they are defending is malignant and dangerous.

Over the past 50+ years, around 10,000,000 Muslims have died in violent conflict. Of this number, over 90% were killed by Muslims themselves, in a Shia vs Sunni conflicts. Of the rest, over 90% were killed by non-Muslims, defending themselves against Muslim attackers.
During this same period, something like 72,000 have died in the Arab-Israeli conflict. 1/3 of them were Jews and 2/3 were Arabs (Muslim & Christian). 90% of these Arabs were not Palestinians but Egyptian and Syrian soldiers died in 1948/67/73 wars.
In September of 1970, around 20,000 Palestinians were killed by the entirely Muslim Royal Jordanian Army. Many times more than all the Palestinians killed by Israel since 1948.
There wasn’t a single Arab who protested on that war crime.
Yet, If Israel kills a terrorist, the Arab world yells and cries.I’m not saying Israel is a pure angel, however, in the Middle East, the safest country for any Muslim to live in is Israel.
The most dangerous country for any Muslim to live in is a Muslim majority country.
The greatest enemy of Muslims is not America or Israel, it is Islam itself, as it teaches not to accept others’ beliefs.Can you explain me the killing of 200,000 Syrian civilians in the last 3 years?
Can you explain me the killing of 100,000 men, women and children in Algeria, using the most abominable killing methods?
Can you explain me the terror attack 3 years ago on the peaceful village of Al-Kisheh in upper Egypt, killing 21 Coptic peasants?
Can you explain me the 5,000 Shia muslims that died just in the last week in Iraq by ISIS?
Can you explain me the killing of 43 Christians in Nigeria by Boko Haram and the kidnapping of 276 school girls?
Can you explain this killing phenomena that took place in the Muslim world?Is it all a revenge against America? Is it all a revenge against Israel?Or is it merely to satisfy barbaric religious instincts, aroused by religious Islamic teaching, which incite the rejection of others, the killing of others and the denial of others?

In Muslim countries, religion is the main source of education.
When you educate a child in his early years to learn the words of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, which says: “I was ordered to fight the people until they believe in Allah and his Messenger”, you made the first step of making this child a future terrorist.
Islamic teaching are playing a role in creating these terrorists who killed all the people I mentioned.

This is not Israel who kills Muslims around the world. It is Islam.
It is not the terrorists who distorted Islam (as some ignorant people claim), it is Islam who distorted the terrorists.
When Saddam Hussein buried 300,000 Kurds and Shia Muslims alive, we did not hear a single Muslim protest against that crime.
Yet, when Israel enter Gaza and kills 1000 Palestinians, most of them armed Hamas terrorists, the Arab world cries.

Isn’t your hypocrisy serves the continuing of Muslims getting killed around the middle east?

There will be no peace in the middle east, not between Jews and Muslims and not between Muslims themselves, until the Muslims re-examine their Islamic books which are full of calls to “takfir” and insulting other religions.
When it will happen, the world will respect the Muslims as it respects the Jews.

Yep, what he said. American Thinker adds to the point.  And makes the other point that by not confronting it, but appeasing it, the nations of the West are simply destroying themselves from within.

Distressed by the Muslims’ trouble-making and killing sprees, civilized nations are bending over backwards in the hope of placating them and helping them join the family of humanity by admitting hordes of immigrants and offering them all manner of hospitality and assistance. All these gestures remain in vain and to no avail. Many of the new arrivals, deeply infected by the violent side of the Islamic ethos, find it impossible to assimilate in the host countries. Instead, they strive to impose their own order, which is the cause of their own backwardness and inhumanity in the nations from which they have emigrated.

The non-Muslim world is at its wit’s end. No accommodation or kindness seems to stem the tide of Islamic violence. Countless numbers of proposals have been advanced in dealing with this systemic Islamic disorder.  Some feel that, in general, Muslims are law-abiding citizens of their adopted countries and it is only a minority that is responsible for the violence and mayhem. Thinking along these lines has prompted people to say that the solution to Islamic violence rests with Islamic leaders. That is, Islamic leaders should speak up and condemn jihad and jihadists.

Western armchair theorizers and wishful thinkers need to take time and study the Islamic system in order to avoid making demands on Muslim leaders — demands that will never be met because they are completely unrealistic.

Islam presently has its hold over on over a billion humans, posing an existential threat to all non-Muslims. Islam, yet again, has risen from the ashes of defeat and is on a campaign of conquest throughout the world. Hordes of fanatical Islamic foot soldiers are striving to kill and get killed.  What they all want is the opportunity to discharge their homicidal-suicidal impulses, on their way to Allah’s promised glorious paradise. And in the background, granting the foot soldiers’ wishes, are their handlers, the puppeteers, who pull the strings and detonate these human bombs.  Those who cherish life must recognize these emissaries of death — what makes them, what motivates them, and how best to defend against them.

Well put.  There is no real answer here except creating a white line that no group, Christian, or Muslim, or secular for that matter,  can act out in a violent manner and be allowed to exist within the borders of any nation.  If that means killing, jailing or exporting the offenders, so be it.  Allowing them to exist while they pick off peaceful citizens is absolutely the dumbest, most suicidal decision I’ve ever seen.

We keep that up, we’ll end up like Britain.  All nations have tipping points.

Seriously, WTF??

The book report joke.

These things run around the Net.  I thought this one was so funny I would post it.

Book Report
Students at a local school were assigned to read 2 books, ‘Titanic,’ and ‘My Life’ by Bill Clinton.

One student turned in the following book report, with the proposition that they were nearly identical stories!

His cool professor gave him an A+ for this report.

Titanic: Cost – $29.99
Clinton : Cost – $29.99

Titanic: Over 3 hours to read
Clinton : Over 3 hours to read

Titanic: The story of Jack and Rose, their forbidden love, and subsequent catastrophe.
Clinton : The story of Bill and Monica, their forbidden love, and subsequent catastrophe.

Titanic: Jack is a starving artist.
Clinton : Bill is a bullshit artist.

Titanic: In one scene, Jack enjoys a good cigar.
Clinton : Ditto for Bill

Titanic: During the ordeal, Rose’s dress gets ruined.
Clinton : Ditto for Monica.

Titanic: Jack teaches Rose to spit.
Clinton : Let’s not go there.

Titanic: Rose gets to keep her jewelry.
Clinton : Monica is forced to return her gifts.

Titanic: Rose remembers Jack for the rest of her life.
Clinton : Clinton doesn’t remember anything.

Titanic: Rose goes down on a vessel full of seamen.
Clinton : Monica… Ooh, let’s not go there, either.

Titanic: Jack surrenders to an icy death.
Clinton : Bill goes home to Hillary – basically the same thing.

Icy death.  Brilliant…
