As tragic as officer-involved shootings of anyone is, not all of them are worth burning down a Wendy's for. For radical activists and their enablers, this act is getting old fast. The latest incident, in Atlanta, wrought a huge amount of turmoil: Atlanta police units initially responded to a 911 call reporting a suspicious person at Wendy's around 10:30 p.m. Friday. Officers found a man asleep in his car, parked in the drive-thru lane and blocking customers, according to GBI. They reportedly conducted a sobriety test, but when they attempted to arrest the man, identified as 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, a struggle ensued.

But their act is really working. First, it's like winning the Powerball jackpot for the family of the deceased thug, and just for refusing to comply peacefully with the cops. And second, wow, free looting for the whole hood! Free big screen TVs. Free baby mama clothes. And you even get to crack a few cracka heads if you feel like it. Might even get your feet washed too. And best of all, if you get arrested, they just let you go! Win-win-win, baby! Robert Mugabe never had it so good.

The overwhelming majority of people shot by police deserve what they get. IIRC, the number if erroneous police shootings typically runs in the high single digits to very low double digits (8 to 15) per YEAR in the entire country of 325 million people with 60 million 'police interactions' per year. That error rate is a vanishingly small number. And as sad as it is, it will never be zero. Never. And ultimately, a shooting board will be convened to look over the events, even thought the officers have to decide in milliseconds whether to shoot or not - and getting it wrong can be their life, right then and there. It is useful to do a few 'use of force' training sessions with a cop video simulator and a real gun in your hand (rigged to fire lasers only for the training) and get a glimpse of how easy it is to shoot someone in error. I have only had the privilege to run a few scenarios, as a non-officer, but my officer friends who ran me through it let me have a much better appreciation of how difficult these instant, life or death choices can be. And even on a video screen (life sized, 5 ft or so in front of you) it will get your adrenaline pumping. Many police departments have a "citizen police academy" or something like it to give citizens a better understanding of what their training is like and what the job is like. I encourage everyone to do a ride along or attend a citizen's police academy. You can't really "walk a mile in their shoes", but you can get a bit closer to understanding how difficult their jobs really can be.

This won’t stop until a significant number of the rioters are shot. Then we’ll have to have another one of their screaming “conversations.’

like the add for the watch. Count the lives saved by the police! keep your hands where the police can see them. Otherwise, suffer the consequences. The cop has the right to protect himself.

2 possible outcomes 1. Whenever a black person dies of anything but natural causes, excepting COVID-19 because it disproportionately affects blacks, we must loot 3 Walgreens, 5 T-mobiles, 9 Apple stores and burn to the ground at least 18 local small businesses. 2. Nobody can ever again be hired as a police officer unless he or she (other pronouns jump on in) is black. Where did all the sane people go ?

From the events of the past few weeks, it's obvious the police departments in some of our larger cities are poorly trained and led. They have used improper and dangerous techniques in dealing with suspected criminals and they have stood by helplessly while rioters and looters destroyed property and endangered the citizens. It is local officials who are responsible for the performance of their policemen...not Congress...not Trump...not the Justice Department...but local officials. And it local officials don't properly supervise the police it's up to the voters to send them packing. The solutions lies in the ballot box, not in Washington DC.

Gotta keep people angry for election day, don'tcha know. People don't think rationally when they're angry which is an advantage for the Democrats. We're going to hear about every shooting thru November. The anarchists and rioters will keep torching places to keep people angry. Always remember. The police have no procedure that is 100% guaranteed to apprehend someone safely. Keep that in mind whenever having an encounter with the police. Be polite. Answer their questions truthfully. Do what they say. Don't resist them. Do anything else, and things can go bad in a terrible way. There is another problem that nobody has been talking about. That's the drug culture. It killed George Floyd, and it killed Rayshard Brooks. Its not a matter of if drugs will kill these people, and more a matter of when. The democrats and the BLM protesters keep preaching 'change'. Until they address the drug culture, all they are saying is insincere, and they don't mean anything.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Wendy's that was destroyed was black owned and employed mostly blacks. The anarchists don't care about anyone, they only destroy.

Clarification to my post #2. The numbers of police "bad shootings", at least where officers are convicted of a crime are far lower. One source says 13 cases since 2005. I remember some older numbers saying that there were about 11 or 12 police shootings per year that were "in error", which is not the same as murder. I cannot find a source for that right now. But it was part of the concealed carry licensing course material. Typical numbers of police fatal shootings per year are about 1,000 to 1,200 per year in a country of 325,000,000 people. If 11 or 12 are "in error" (which I believe to be approximately correct) that means that 99% are not in error, or are justified use of deadly force. With 13 convictions in 15 years, this means that of 15 years x 1100 fatal shootings per year = 165, 000 fatal police shootings, with 13 deemed criminal. 1/100th of one percent would be 16.5 criminal shootings, so the actual is less than that level. So, historically less than 1/100th of 1 percent, or 1 out of 10,000 fatal police shootings is judged to be criminal. And 1 out of 100 are judged to be an error, but not criminal. When human beings are involved, that level of error is about as close to perfection as we are ever going to be able to get. We should continue to try to do better, but it is unrealistic to expect the error rate to be zero. Things happen quickly, lighting is often poor, and in the middle of complex, criminal, violent encounters - some errors will happen.

Is there anything more pathetic than a leader whose charges have all simply walked away? Hard to look big and powerful when that happens. But that's the pretty picture in Hallandale Beach, where the entire SWAT team has resigned after the police chief and members of his command staff took a knee in religious obeisance to the Black Lives Matter anti-police activist group. Here's the Miami Herald's account of the embarrassment: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week,

It is widely known that our betters say it’s OK to protest in massive groups despite the risk of coronavirus transmission, but small gatherings not in support of Black Lives Matter are still unacceptable. Now we’re told that it’s also fine for protests to turn violent as long as it happens for the “right” reason. Imagine, though, the howling that would have pierced our ears had there been a whiff of violence started by the protesters whose only demand was to be set free of the pandemic lockdowns.

With looting black-owned stores starting to become a public relations problem for leftist anti-police protesters, they've returned to their old standby: statue-toppling. As if directed by some Mighty Integral, statues of Christopher Columbus, Robert E.

Democrats have met the enemy, and it is the police. Well, not all police. They love the heavily armed federal police at agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency. Just days after George Floyd died in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department, Democrats managed to compile a sweeping police reform bill that would, among other things, limit “qualified immunity” of police officers, lower the limits on what constitutes excessive force, create a national registry of police misconduct, bar the use of “no-knock” arrest warrants, and limit the transfer of military equipment to police departments. Meanwhile, Democrats around the country

The mainstream media would have you think the riots and looting that have erupted across the country are just spontaneous explosions of pent-up anger over the callous killing of a black suspect, at the hands of a blue-city Minneapolis police officer. Well, I've covered a lot of riots - from Indonesia, to Argentina, to Russia, to East Timor, to Thailand, to Venezuela, plus domestic ones in Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco - as a journalist.

Dismantling the police, a measure already proposed in Minneapolis, makes about as much sense as eliminating doctors or farmers, and would likewise lead to pain and death. But if there is method to the madness, and I suspect there is in some Machiavellian quarters, it’s perhaps this: Certain leftists want to eliminate the police because they want to become the police. Or, at least, they want their foot soldiers to fill that role. Oh, there are other motivations, too, ranging from raw, misguided passion to formulaic devotion to a perverse leftist creed to wider efforts to destabilize the country.

According to Fox News: New York Times columnist Paul Krugman apologized Friday after he was roasted for floating a "conspiracy theory" that President Trump could have influenced the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

President Trump was happy as heck at the news that Michael Pack, his choice for new director at the Voice of America, finally got confirmed by the Senate.

Three cities, all supremely liberal, represent an American descent into anarchy against which no one is standing. After New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said he wanted to slash the police budget, the New York City Council is going about cutting $1 billion from that budget, about 16%. That will inevitably cause a reduction of police presence around the city and, with equal inevitability, result in an increase in crime. In Minneapolis, where George Floyd was killed in police custody on May 25, the city council plans to disband its police force entirely. On Friday, the city council voted to replace the police with a “community-led public safety system.”
