If I were the police, I would take black neighborhoods off my radar. Let’s face it, white neighborhoods are safer, and they don’t shout “Kill the cops!”
The gist of the Ferguson, MO story is that the cops ordered two black teens to stop…for whatever reason. The teens got “lippy,” and maybe even fought with the cop. At some point, the teen got shot twice.
This certainly would not be unusual. Teens these days have a “F the cops” mentality. The more defiant you are, the more street cred, particularly in the black Liberal community.
I can only speculate, since much of this story is yet to be told. But what is not speculation is the mentality of black Liberals.They have already put the cops on trial. But we aren’t hearing much about Michael Brown.
I don’t know if Michael Brown is a bad guy or a good guy who has been wronged. I can tell you, statistically speaking, he is likely a bad guy.
Like the Trayvon Martin story, we won’t know much about Michael Brown for some time, if I’m right about Brown being a bad seed. This is Race-Profiteering 101: The race-baiters can’t make money if it is known that the person they are protecting is not a good citizen. In other words, condemning the police, even wrongly, is the right strategy for race-pimps to get paid.
Al Sharpton is flying in from an earlier potential payday, where a cop choked a man to death. Tragic story that doesn’t need Sharpton. And neither does this story. But that won’t stop Sharpton from making sure that people THINK he is powerful.
The NAACP wants the FBI to look into it, though I suspect the cop who did the shooting was black. If that cop were white, I think this story would be at Defcon 1. The NAACP spin will be that they are protecting black people against the oppressive police. They don’t seem to realize that cops are government. Further, where is the NAACP in asking the FBI to check in when black teens are killing other black people?
There is a reason there are a disproportionate number of black men in jail; and despite the Liberals tome, it’s not because the police are bad. This cops didn’t decide come off a donut break to target Michael Brown for sport. The cop stopped Brown for a reason. Would you hang out in a black neighborhood for “shiggles,” if you didn’t have to?
And like with the Trayvon Martin story, if Brown had complied with the cop, instead of playing Tommy Toughass, he would likely be alive today.
I’m not exonerating a cop for a bad decision, if he acted hastily or irrationally. But people need to learn how to behave with the men in blue, because they have a difficult job. Stupidity on anybody’s part enhances that difficulty exponentially.
Like I said, if black Liberals don’t want the protection of cops, just let the cops know. I would appreciate the added police presence in my hood. I’ll even give them hot coffee and donuts.
