The future of local police departments has become a top election issue. Rasmussen released recent polls showing that Americans pay close attention to debates about law and order. For instance, 50% of likely voters want to see harder crackdowns on urban unrest, while only 38% support continuing protests in cities. Overall, 72% are concerned about recent reports of urban violence. Over 60% of Americans said their feelings about the protests will have an effect on their November voting.

FTA: ...while only 38% support continuing protests in cities. ONLY? That's over a third of our population who want our cities (and us) to burn. I don't see this ending peacefully.

What will replace the police will be some form of "security force" employed by, and entirely beholden to, the political power wielder(s) holding positions of authority at the time of the dissolution of the local departments. In other words, Lori Lightfoot, Gavin Newsome and their ilk will head up the law enforcement in addition to leading whatever body writes and enacts the laws where they hold sway. The policing will be openly political and aimed more at repressing dissent than protecting the citizenry from actual criminals.

Committees of Vigilance were the western substitute for police, courts and judges. People will not let there be NO resistance to criminals as a permanent situation. For a relatively recent example, refer to Ken McElroy in Skidmore, Missouri in about 1985. That small town is about 100 miles north of where I live. People will not let criminals run rampant, harming people and committing crimes in their community if the police and legal system won't do anything about it, The People will, eventually.

I don't quite understand these figures. 72% are concerned about the violence, but 38% support it. That adds up to 110% in my book, but then I am of the old school of math, wherein 2+2 = 4. Or is it like those transgenders, who want to have it both ways? Or are those extra 10 per centers concerned there isn't enough violence and are included in both groups?

#7, I read about that before, but did a search and found two things new to me. One he was shot with a high powered rifle, which implies maybe a sniper. That is something McElroy did not deserve. IF anyone rated a mob a bucket and a tree it was that criminal. A perfect example of a broken American justice system, filled with worthless lawyers like the one resident of Skidmore who claimed the town got away with murder, his lawyer. The psychopath was enabled and protected from earlier justice, by this guy - https://www.harrymaclean.com/blog/richard-mcfadin-ken-mcelroys-lawyer-died/

#12, not any kind of a sniper, if you mean shot from a distance with stealth. It was up close, dozens of witnesses know exactly who did it, I am sure. The town was having a meeting in a local tavern about 'what to do about McElroy' after decades of beating, robbing and shooting people and getting away with it. McElroy heard about the meeting, and decided to do his normal thing, show up and intimidate people, and he had shot people who threatened to testify against him in the past. Gut shot a farmer and left him dying in a ditch, but he was found and saved. A friend of McElroy said he was in the next county, and he even got off on that one. McElroy and his girlfriend pulled up into the parking lot, stayed in the PU. Someone relayed that he was there to the folks inside and they came out. About 30-50 people surrounded the PU and there was some talk. Two rifle barrels poked out from the crowd, apparently one into each window and two shots were fired at a range of no more than a few feet. The guns instantly "disappeared" and "nobody saw a thing". Despite massive police, and IIRC, state police and (maybe, not certain) FBI presence and investigation the story was always, "I never saw who did it". To this day, McElroy is dead, and nobody has said a word publicly. The girl friend says that she could see the rifle muzzle, but not who held it, in the tightly packed crowd. IIRC one rifle was a .22 rimfire and one was a "high powered rifle", which is basically any deer rifle. IMO, McElroy got a trial with a jury of 40 or 50, any of which could have 'blown the cover' at any time after, including now, but clearly they are all happy with their choice. Folks will only put up with so much violence before the put an end to it. The police, prosecutors and judges need to dispense real justice, which people know when they see it. If not, things will get settled in the old, irregular way. We really don't want to do that.

What planet does Joe Biden live on? In his campaign for president, he's promised more lockdowns if the "experts" tell him to do it, maybe permanent lockdown, lockdown as a lifestyle, which means shutting down the entire country. It's bizarre stuff given that it's already been done, with plenty of unintended consequences. It's a supposed leadership redo of President Trump's supposedly bad leadership on COVID. This, according to Joe, is how one really does it, so rewind the reel to March 2020 and let him start the lockdowns from there as if nothing had at all changed (snip) the call of someone still living in March 2020, embedded in amber

The Story Behind Bannon's Arrest 9 replies

On August 20th, President Trump’s former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was arrested on fraud charges relating to the “We Build the Wall” construction project on the U.S.-Mexico border. The news made for splashy headlines, but story behind the charges was more mundane. Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee veteran and Purple Heart recipient, used a crowdfunding website as part of a political gag aimed at raising $1 billion dollars to construct a U.S.-Mexico border wall. After unexpectedly raising $17 million dollars within the first week, Kolfage decided to hand off the suddenly real and ambitious initiative to someone with more experience, connections, and resources. Steve Bannon stepped up to help

One of the most revolting things about Joe Biden’s candidacy is his dishonest insistence that Donald Trump called white supremacists “fine people.” Democrats have successfully used this hoax to brainwash large parts of the American public into believing that Trump and his supporters are racists and anti-Semites. One wonders, therefore, how much consternation there is in Biden campaign headquarters now that Richard Spencer, one of America’s best-known neo-Nazis, is all in for Biden.

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

A new study published to the journal Scientific Reports suggests that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with slightly decreased brain volume. Scientists have long known that heavy alcohol use shrinks the brain, but it's not clear whether or not moderate drinking has a similar effect. Researchers from the University of Helsinki in Finland explored the possible link within a sample of 353 Finnish men and women aged 39 to 45. On average, the subject group reported moderate alcohol consumption, indicated by an AUDIT-C score of 3.92. Such a score is roughly equivalent to drinking two to four times a month, having between three and four drinks a session,
