Blacks are arrested because of white cops, at least that is what the black and white leftists believe.
It’s not the core problem and this one-sided conversation needs to stop. Police and criminal justice reform are meaningless unless we do something about the gangs. Shipping more gangsters in from foreign countries through our system of open borders is definitely not the solution.
One of the criticisms we hear is that police officers are abusing black people by stopping them unfairly for traffic violations but there is another side to that story.
Here is one small personal experience I’d like to use to illustrate.
So there I am sitting in traffic court and a black woman is being accused by a police officer of cursing the officer out when he stopped her for a traffic violation. She called him a f……g pig in an endless tirade of vulgar invectives. It apparently went on quite a while.
The judge was still thinking of letting her off with traffic court and said we will take a look at your traffic record and if it’s not bad, we can do something for you.
With that, she screamed, “This is f……g bu..sh..!” There was a collective sigh in the court with people slapping their hands on their foreheads in frustration. The judge slapped her with a $150 dollar fine to which she mumbled some curses.
The judge told her you may get away with that in some places but not in this court. He told her she now had a $250 fine and if she kept it up, she could spend a day in jail.
Pay the fine and have a nice day, he said. He also told the bailiff that he should escort her and if she so much as mumbled, he should bring her back in. She didn’t return.
That is one of the stories the media would never care to hear.
Then we hear that cops are too quick to shoot, and they are easily arrested based on politics more than guilt in some cases. The Michael Brown case is one obvious example.
We have an officer who hesitated and was pistol whipped by a suspect who was probably a gangbanger or career criminal.
The officer didn’t want to be accused of needlessly killing an unarmed man.
“A lot of officers are being too cautious because of what’s going on in the media,” said the officer, who asked to remain anonymous for the safety of his family. “I hesitated because I didn’t want to be in the media like I am right now.”
When we get to the crux of the problem, it is the gang problem and black on black crime that is the real problem.
A Staten Island, New York gangbanger with the Bloods street gang, a career criminal, Garland Tyree, was in his apartment with his girlfriend when the police came to arrest him on a warrant. He didn’t want to go so he set fire to the building. When the firefighters came to put out the fire, he shot one of the firefighters in the leg.
Tyree’s mom spoke with him via cell and had a “sweet,” three-minute conversation with him from a communications van about a block away.
“We’ll deal with this. Come out. We love you,” the mom told her son, according to sources. He replied, “I love you. I’m coming out now, Mama,” sources said.
“I’m coming out, Mama,” he said, according to the New York Police Department’s top hostage negotiator, Lt. Jack Cambria.
Instead Tyree, armed with an AK-47 despite New York’s tough gun laws, and wearing a bulletproof vest, came out shooting at cops.
This was after hours of cops extending themselves way, way too much in trying to talk him out.
Afterwards, much of the mainstream media emphasized statements by the family and gangbanger friends to the effect that he had mental problems and was on drugs. He had been in foster care and group homes.
His former defense attorney said he was “a very smart young man.”
In other words, it’s not really his fault.
There is always some excuse for evil.
“The NYPD showed extraordinary restraint and care,” de Blasio said as if it were a good thing. “The NYPD really went the extra mile here.”
Tyree has been arrested 18 times since 2004 and in two cases, he slashed people, one was so violently that the person required 60 stitches. He just got out of jail recently after being incarcerated for ten years.
The former defense attorney said he managed to turn everything good into bad and this is “what happens when you grow up in a crack-infested environment”.
Therein lies the problem so Barack Obama’s solution is to spread the misery. He’s going to move these people around into “wealthy” neighborhoods as part of his new HUD rule. This is what totalitarian social engineers do.
