Black lives matter

No police officer leaves for work in the morning with the intent to murder a black man.Bad training and past experience does mean that sometimes tragic instances of accidental death/manslaughter do arise. The rise of smart phone filming of the incidents and the non stop tweeting of airhead entertainers and racially laden pronouncements from the likes of Obama do however enable the murders of the five officers in Dallas last night.You cannot demonise a body of people such as the police and not expect idiots to one day act, especially when they believe they have the backing of the likes of Obama, J.Jackson, Beyonce and other clowns....there will be more incidents like this and it pains me to see America torn apart.

It's a horrible state of affairs all round.

All the guilty, the lawless on both sides, need to be removed from the scene.

"You cannot demonize a body of people such as the police" but you can hold them accountable, since they work for the public.

James is correct ALL the guilty on both sides need to be removed. Unfortunately all you can do on the side of the criminals, is prosecute them under our laws.

… and before you get all bent out of shape

"It took me a long time, and a number of people talking to me through the years, to get a sense of this: If you are a normal, white American, the truth is you don’t understand being black in America and you instinctively under-estimate the level of discrimination and the level of additional risk."

This is a direct quote from Newt Gingrich made July 8, 2016. Hardly a bleeding heart liberal……..

I have no dog in this fight so I'm pretty open to both sides.I do appreciate the extra risk for a section of society but that section created the risk through its actions and so the result is the trouble we see now.If the police slowly withdraw from communities as we are seeing now then the only people that suffer are the poor unfortunates left behind at the mercy of those criminals who care for no people regardless of colour.i don't know where this will end but not well I think.

Sure you have no dog in this fight. That's why you wrote: "the non stop tweeting of airhead entertainers and racially laden pronouncements from the likes of Obama ". I also note that labeled it "all lives matter" and "blm"?

But now you say: "I do appreciate the extra risk for a section of society" So what is its? BTW where do you see that in Black Lives Matter it would exclude any other lives? Your argument is unbelievably weak.

Let's see: "President Ronald Reagan issued a presidential proclamation on January 16, 1984, designating Sunday, Jan 22, 1984 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day noting that it was the 11th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in which, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that guaranteed women access to abortion."

Using your weak argument this must mean President Reagan called for animal abuse after all his proclamation was for the Sanctity of "Human" Life.

Just because you highlight a cause you think needs to be addressed doesn't mean you exclude other causes. I know this might not be natural to you as a Brit, but our Constitution gives us the right to speak out about things we care about. The same way our Constitution protects the free speech of people supporting overturning Roe v. Wade. Or are you saying:

You cannot demonize a body of people such as the abortion providers and not expect idiots to one day act, especially when they believe they have the backing of the likes of the RNC and other clowns.

Guest, we seem to be at a bit of an impasse here as you put forward your perfectly sound arguments.You point out I'm a Brit as you point out and as a Brit I have the usual British manners which means I don't wish to give offence in my contact with strangers.I feel however in this case I must make my feelings clear....I don't give a flying fuck how many gobshites are killed whether they be criminals or anybody involved with BLM...clear now? Please feel free to write,insult or rant away with you amusing demented leftie logic and as you poor benighted colonials say "have a nice day".

The death rate among police officers murdered in the line of duty in the US is high. Far from being one-way...

I spent the last weekend with one of the top police Armed Response Vehicle drivers in the SW and he said of our differences that:

A) There is a gun culture in the USA

B) Officers cannot be so well trained as our few experts, but then our few experts do not have to deal with prolific violent gun crime

C) 1 in 4 officers is killed by his own gun after a grapple

No wonder American cops are twitchy. They will have read reports and seen videos of how instantly a situation can turn lethal.

Thud said...

Kev,you and I know that but to those with an agenda or a lack of brains you may have well been talking martian.

Thud: It seems that you know the difference between Mephistophelian polemics and logic/reason; thank you for the dispatch!
