Trump Retweets Video Of Man Shouting “White Power”

 

Trump Retweets Video Of Man Shouting “White Power”

This morning the president of the United States retweeted a video showing protesters clashing with his supporters in The Villages, Florida, a senior citizen enclave that has become infamous in recent years for its almost entirely white and right wing population.

As a parade of golf carts laded with Trump signs passes shouting protesters, the man in the lead cart responds by shouting, “White power!” The man he is targeting reacts with, “There it is, white power.”

There is a lot of tweets and the video at the link above.  tRump is making it clear to his base with this and his defense against the confederate statues.  We have always know tRump is a racist bigot.   Now he has dropped the pretense and is going full George Wallace to attract his bigoted base.   

OT.  Nancy Pelosi just flat out said she did not know what Putin had on tRump, if it was personal or financial, but it was clear there was something.  She pulled no punches and when asked again about if she thought it was true Putin had something on tRump she responded, it was clear wasn’t it.    Hugs

272 NYPD Cops File for Retirement and Others Play Sick in Response to Anti-Police Brutality Protests

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Dealing With Abuse, Death, Fascism, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason — Scottie @ 15:43

Spoiled brats not allowed to abuse others are having a tantrum.   I think they are doing it because they know their own methods and feelings and know that if they stay on the force they would be up on charges.  They have gotten away with it so far and now are getting out while they can.   Hugs

Explaining the mass retirement, Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch recently said, “[NYPD officers] at their breaking point, whether they have 20 years on the job or only two. We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?’ And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd wants. If we have no cops because no one wants to be a cop, they will have achieved their ultimate goal.”

Wrong, people do not want no law enforcement at all, they just don’t want thugs breaking the law to harass and kill them.   If you have to be a militarized force above the law and using your gun and badge to harm the people then we don’t want you, please quit and retire.   You are not police, your thugs.  It is clear the mind set of the police that the talk of reform is so upsetting to them.   They are not saying OK lets make it better for everyone, they are demanding no change at all.  No change from their abuses, no change from their killing people, no change from their absolute authority.   That is not a civil society, not a democracy, that is an occupied population ruled over by gang thugs to keep them inline.   

Two flyers being passed around by officers state, “NYPD cops will strike on July 4th to let the city have their independence without cops… The people and this city doesn’t honor us, why honor them?” The images provide instructions for a sickout, a form of labor protest that encourages workers to simultaneously call in sick to work, depriving a facility of its ability to operate.

Any that do that should either provide a doctors note or be fired.   When I worked for the hospital you couldn’t call in sick on a holiday and return to work with out a doctor verifying you had an illness.   Plus any such sick days on holidays went against your evaluations.   

“People have had enough and no longer feel it’s worth risking their personal well-being for a thankless position,” he said. “There is no leadership, no direction, no training for new policies. Department brass is paralyzed (and) too afraid to uphold their sworn oath in fear of losing their jobs. Sadly, the people of this city will soon experience what New York City was like in the 1980s.”

It is a myth that policing is a dangerous job.   It is not even in the top ten.  I looked at a dozen sites and as for the rank of danger the job presents the most dangerous I could find was 14.  On many lists of 25 it was left off.   Most policing is 99% routine and boredom with only 1% pure adrenaline spike.   So to preach, teach, and drill cops to have a constant fear for their safety and to view every situation as they will die is what is causing all these abuse and unwarranted deaths.  It is criminal to teach police this way.  It incentives the warrior mentality instead of the helpful problem solver mentality.  Hugs

Fired Miami police officer charged for putting knee on Black woman’s neck

They simply will not stop until their power to do it is taken away.   They do not want to serve and protect, they want to dominate.   The police do not see themselves as an Andy Taylor type officer, but as Rambo.   They see the situation as an occupying force over an occupied population.  Hugs

A former Miami police officer was charged on Thursday with battery and misconduct after a video surfaced showing him pressing his knee on a Black woman’s neck and tasing her stomach, while she kept screaming, U.S. media reports said.

Jordi Martel, 30, was charged with official misconduct for filing two reports with false details about the incident that took place outside a striptease club on Jan. 14, State Attorney Katherine Rundle told a press conference.

The video of the incident, filmed by a bystander, showed Martel dragging Safiya Satchell, 33, out of her car and subsequently forcing her down on a grass verge by the roadside.

The video clip showed Martel stunned her twice with a Taser, a weapon that delivers an electric shock. Another officer held Satchell’s arm as she struggled to free herself.

I verified the story.  Here is a link to the CNN report which has more information damning the police officers involved and showing how little any non-Christian faith is respected.   Hugs

Millions Are Demanding Justice for Elijah McClain Who Died After Cops Put Him in a Chokehold Last Year

It has happened so many times, how can any say it is not systemic racism?   Hugs

It’s been nearly a year since Elijah McClain, a young Black man in Colorado, was placed in a carotid hold by Aurora police, who threatened to sic him with a dog as he sobbed, vomited, and said he couldn’t breathe.

McClain died in the hospital several days after the August 2019 incident. He was 23. The three arresting officers were placed on administrative leave, but they were not fired. In November, the local district attorney announced they also wouldn’t face charges.

 

The August 24 incident began when police were called to respond to a suspicious man wearing a ski mask and waving his arms, according to a news release from the Aurora Police Department. McClain’s family has said he was anemic, and wore the mask to keep him warm.

Plus, he was unarmed, hadn’t committed a crime, and had no history of arrest, according to local media reports. He was getting some iced tea when officers stopped him, his sister told KMGH, a local ABC affiliate, last September.

Officers said McClain “would not stop walking down the street” and resisted them. They tackled him to the ground; his sister said he may not have heard the officers because he had headphones in, according to KMGH. One officer said McClain reached for their gun.

McClain briefly fainted after he was placed in a carotid hold, which is a type of chokehold that cuts off blood flow to the brain by applying pressure to the side of the neck. The move has since been banned by several police departments. Colorado’s governor signed a bill earlier this month forbidding it across the entire state.

“I was just going home,” he can be heard sobbing in body-camera footage. He pleaded with officers that he had good qualities worth considering: he never got in fights, never disrespected people, and wasn’t judgmental.

“I’m just different, I’m just different, that’s all, that’s all I was doing. I’m so sorry,” he said.

“If you keep messing around, I’m going to bring my dog out and he’s going to dog bite you,” one officer told McClain, after he vomited. “Keep messing around.”

After being handcuffed by police, McClain was also injected with ketamine by paramedics who were called to the scene over the “level of physical force applied while restraining the subject and his agitated mental state,” according to police.

Ketamine can induce a trance-like state, and is sometimes used as a sedative or anesthetic. As paramedics were transporting him to a hospital, he went into cardiac arrest. He was revived, but went into cardiac arrest a second time a few hours later, according to The Sentinel.

Unarmed black man walking down a street breaking no laws, was physically accosted by police to the point of them choking him and causing his death.   How is this acceptable?   Are police to be revered and instantly obeyed like the king’s guard?   The young man pleaded with them to the point he was vomiting, and they kept threatening him, it seems they were taking joy in harassing him.   There is more at the link above, but I have tell you that we have a serious police problem and a racism problem.    The link above has several other incidences where police misconduct resulted in death including shooting one person in the back while claiming he was threatening them.    It amazes me so many black people have a special power that lets them threaten police officers while running away from them.     Hugs
