A guy comes after me with two knives in his hands, I ain’t looking at his skin color, baby! I read that any violent perp that gets to the 20-foot mark can get you! I’d empty the clip and re-load! Better to live and be called a racist than to be dead, buried, and forgotten by the likes of BLM.

FTA: “We need to know why Sheboygan police killed Mr. Ruffin instead of handling this in a nonviolent way,” Chris Ott, the ALCU Wisconsin Executive Director said Thursday. We already know why -- because he attacked a woman and then a police officer with knives.

If the man had psychiatric issues, why didn't his family have him under care? It would have been free for them. Allowing a psycho to assault people only hurt him, as the family found out!

I really think that they should have sent in a team of social worker to deal with this. /s off Ask any officer, domestic disturbances are some of the most difficult and unpredictable calls. A common situation, that officers know to watch out for, is - hubby beats the heck out of wifey, wifey calls 911. The police look at her bleeding face, and hear her story of the beating, and start to cuff hubby. Often enough, at this point, wifey goes nuts either fighting the officers or sometimes grabbing a weapon - kitchen knives being a common weapon. More than a few officers have been hurt this way. Yeah, send in social workers. And paramedics for the social workers.

So, those knives must have had black blades so they did not glint in the dark? that's the only possibility of racism here.

#9 is spot on. I have demonstrated that concept many times in martial arts classes, using rubber knives and water guns. The student attempting to draw his gun is often very surprised when he is "stabbed." A smooth draw under stress is not always successful.

If anybody even tangentially related to an incident was black, then "race played a role". (rolling eyes) This has gotten so out of hand that playing the race card doesn't even require some rationale to be given (for how race was a factor). The racism grifters can practically just say "race" when something happens, and *presto*, it was racism.

Since when does having 'psychiatric issues' an excuse for anything? That seem to be the favorite go to excuse for bad behavior. When someone comes at you with a knife, that's a deadly weapon and should be recognized as such. Lethal force is required. What would a social worker have done?

Seems like there is only one solution to the problem: all LEOs should be black because no one cares about black on black crime or black on white crime. I think it's amazing how white people do not take up for each other, but a black man with a rap sheet a mile long can become a national hero.

Why the Mortality Rate
for Black Infants Is So High

Posted by MissMolly 7/4/2020 4:53:24 AM Post Reply
A s Americans discuss black livelihood in the context of recent high-profile black deaths at the hands of police officers, a merciless villain is quietly snatching away thousands of black lives each year: infant mortality. To be sure, medicine has gone a long way toward keeping black babies alive. In 1850, the black infant-mortality rate was 340 per 1,000 (compared with 217 per 1,000 for whites). Still, despite progress, last year over 7,000 black babies died in the United States before reaching one year of age — one baby for every 87 born. Troublingly, the infant-mortality rate is far higher for blacks than for other races:

“Hushpuppi,” a Nigerian scammer suspected of trying to launder hundreds of millions of dollars, was taken into FBI custody in Chicago on Thursday evening. Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, a.k.a. “Ray Hushpuppi” and “Hush,” a Nigerian national, had just been expelled from the United Arab Emirates for various suspected crimes after his arrest last week. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that Abbas will face criminal charges “alleging he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from business email compromise (BEC) frauds and other scams, including schemes targeting a U.S. law firm, a foreign bank and an English Premier League soccer club.”

Alan Dershowitz told The Post on Friday that Ghislaine Maxwell should be “presumed innocent” — and that the feds’ sex case against her may fall apart because of statutes of limitation. In 2008, the Harvard University law professor helped Maxwell’s perverted pal Jeffrey Epstein secure a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Florida while the sexual predator was under investigation for abusing underage girls. Dershowitz also is embroiled in a lawsuit himself against Virginia Guiffre, who claims Epstein kept her as a teenage sex slave and forced her to sleep with both Prince Andrew and Dershowitz. The lawyer and royal both have vehemently denied this.

Public opinion polls appear to portend a Biden victory in November, but the former Vice President will almost certainly succumb to the same affliction that brought about Hillary Clinton’s electoral demise — anemic enthusiasm among minorities. No Democrat can win without the robust backing of this bloc of voters, and Biden’s dubious record on racially sensitive issues combined with more recent blunders, has rendered this support noticeably tepid. He also lacks the support of influential black leaders like civil rights lawyer Leo Terrell, who took to Twitter on Tuesday to write: “If the presidential election was held today, I would vote for #DonaldTrump.”

With coronavirus cases surging in the United States, the media were quick to blame: “Several Republican-led states that moved quickly to reopen this spring at the urging of President Trump have seen new cases explode,” The New York Times reported. Yet hyper-Democratic California is actually seeing the highest number of new cases. Yes, GOP-led Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Texas are also seeing issues. But the red-v.-blue template doesn’t fit reality. Last week, the United States saw a single-day record of more than 52,000 new COVID-19 cases.

Early this morning, Seattle police began dismantling the barricades, tents, and signs that demonstrators had used to control several city blocks for most of the last month. The area was originally known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), but had recently been renamed, for reasons nobody could quite explain, the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (or Occupied Protest), producing the ominous acronym CHOP—as in what happened to dissenters during the French Revolution. In recent weeks, the area had begun to acquire a correspondingly evil reputation, particularly after nightfall. This reached a breaking point about a week ago with two shootings in 48 hours.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Wednesday blamed Russia’s annexation of Crimea on Republicans, though the invasion took place on President Barack Obama's watch. Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression—and tied them to President Barack Obama’s appeasement of Moscow. "You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty," Pelosi told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace. "Undermining our own elections, undermining our commitment to NATO, giving away the store, the base, in Syria. The list goes on and on. Ignoring the annexation of Crimea, the invasion of eastern Ukraine. The list goes on and on."
