Eric Holder complains we don’t talk about race. We are cowards. A newsman on the television, reporting on the murder of a rookie officer, did just that. He was suspended. Why? Because when he spook he put the blame on the inner city culture of fatherless blacks who grow up to be gang members and criminals. He’s right. He just can’t talk about it. Heck, blacks who talk about this can barely get away with it.
So, the question is are we cowards for not talking about it, or are we afraid to lose our jobs and the means to feed and house our kids? And who carries that stick that is wielded so harshly? Oh, that’s right, the same people who say we are cowards for not facing the race issue.
…The Bloods have vowed to kill more Jersey City cops to avenge the thug the police shot dead this week after he executed a rookie officer, The Post has learned.
The violent street gang has threatened to “kill a Jersey City cop and not stop until the National Guard is called out,” a senior law enforcement source revealed.
Police are even being warned that violent Bloods gang members may be traveling from out of state to target officers in New Jersey, according to an internal New Jersey State Police advisory obtained by The Post.
“New Jersey State Police has received credible information from the Jersey City Police Department about specific threats toward Jersey City police officers and law enforcement,” the advisory read.
“The United Blood Nation may take retaliatory action against police officers.”
The PA advisory cautioned that officers should remain vigilant and be aware of “the potential for Bloods traveling into Jersey City.”
In addition to the Port Authority advisory, a statewide alert has been issued to police officers, a senior law enforcement official said Tuesday.
“It was an officer safety awareness” advisory “telling cops to be careful and to wear their vests and take the threat seriously,” the official said. …
Why are the Bloods upset to a murderous level? Because a black man, robbing a store, killed a police officer responding to the call and was killed by the officer’s partner in a gun battle.
…The gang threat was made in direct response to the fatal Jersey City police shooting of Lawrence Campbell moments after he ambushed Officer Melvin Santiago in a Walgreens parking lot early Sunday.
Santiago had been responding to an armed robbery at the 24-hour drugstore when Campbell unleashed a barrage of bullets, leaving 13 holes across the patrol car’s windshield.
Santiago, 23, was shot in the head.
His partner dodged the bullets and returned fire, killing Campbell.
It was not clear Tuesday if Campbell, 27, was a member of the Bloods.
The tip about the threat came from a credible source who has provided valuable information about gang activities in the past, authorities said. …
The wife of the bad guy, now dead, complains if the cops were going to kill him, he should have killed more of them. I shit you not. A certain mindset that is absent from every other culture in our nation. You won’t find Amish saying it, or Mormons, or middle class white (or blacks), or hippies or Wall Street people. Not one group of people in America say that a cop defending himself by killing a cop killer should be killed or that the cop killer should have killed more. Simply unbelievable.
The widow of the thug who executed a Jersey City cop over the weekend said Monday that her husband should have killed even more officers — as her neighbors set up a sickening memorial to her fame-seeking spouse.
“He should’ve taken more [officers] with him,” Angelique Campbell said of husband Lawrence, who killed rookie Officer Melvin Santiago in an ambush early Sunday, before being killed by police.
(In the linked story, just before he began shooting the bad guy said to others “Watch the TV news later — I’m going to be famous.”)
So his mindset was no different that his wife’s. (For a little more background we turned- once again- to a British paper. Our papers won’t cover this.) Again, this is not by accident or a rarity. We have allowed the decline of a certain subculture in America, even after throwing trillions of dollars at it.
So if the reason isn’t money, why did it fail? I argue because the African-American activists are cowards and won’t talk about or face the problem. The average decent black person recognizes and despises this situation. I grew up around blacks, I remember riding with one of the first black deputies in our county back in the late seventies. He was outstanding and explained the relationship and comparisons between the black community and the white community. What he said was that only a small minority of blacks caused problems and gave the whole community a bad reputation. The vast majority of blacks wanted to be married, care for their families, go to church, work hard and provide a better life for their kids. They were, sadly, a silent majority that was painted with a negative broad brush. I agree.
So, it isn’t simply a white issue, it is a black issue. They are the cause, they are the remedy. The white population isn’t allowed to be truthful, without facing destructive forces. So we’re out. Nobody is listening, and nobody on our side wants to take the hit because we spoke the truth.
However, for years, the vocal activists used the decline to make money (Thanks Jessie and Al). But now the decline is so damaging to so much of our general culture- as it impacts almost everything and every day living (think random knock out games and flash mobs)- that suddenly, everybody who holds some responsibility and needs to be held accountable for their past bad acts are jumping back and claiming loudly “I didn’t do that!” Eric Holder and his ilk are part of that group. That should not be allowed to occur. They broke it, by God they need to fix it!
If you allow ANY human group a free pass for bad behavior long enough they will begin to think it is a right. We see that in government employees, and the near inability to fire them for bad or poor behavior. Now their attitude is once of entitled arrogance as we have witnessed in the recent scandals. We see it in the subculture in the inner cities. We see it in entitlement groups. We see it in teachers. We see it in illegal aliens. We see in police departments at times (but usually corrected when exposed). We see it in so many other areas of our culture too, a steady drip-drip-drip of acidic destruction.
With the election of Obama, a man who could have turned off that spigot with one sentence, we are now suffering the exact opposite. His “post-racial” promise is anything but. I understand the politics of it. What I don’t understand is their willingness to literally burn the house down to get what they think is some kind of reward. I can’t believe they believe that destroying the nation will serve them at all, unless the elites plan to move en masse to another country and set up there. The bad guys will seek the most fruitful targets, and will feel they have a right to take anything they want, with violence if necessary. Let’s be honest, there are a ton of targets on the liberal side, many who helped create this mess.
And be assured the bad guys won’t care a whit about their politics, just what cool stuff they have that can be taken by force.
