Keep Calm and Remain Adult

Without question, police are under physical fire following protests and riots by Black Lives Matter. The incident in San Antonio is only the latest.

From USA Today:
Multiple gunshots were fired at the San Antonio Police headquarters building Saturday night, and police are seeking a suspect who was seen running from the area, SAPD Chief William McManus said.
The shots were fired just before 10 p.m. Saturday. There were no reports of injuries, but bullet marks were found on the exterior wall of the building, McManus said. Shell casings were discovered in a nearby alley.
The area near the building in the 300 block of South Santa Rosa was closed off as the investigation continued. Several police cars were seen at a nearby corner blocking access to the area.
Fed four years of socialist garbage and racial hatred in college, a small army of social justice warriors is pushing this anarchistic violence. This is Bill Ayersian. As I wrote in reaction to the Dallas massacre, "The devil in Chicago laughs at Dallas."

So what do we do? Follow the lead of Dallas Police Chief David Brown: Keep Calm and Remain Adult. He has a progressive police force that ignores broken taillights in favor of working with the public on crime prevention. He faces a space of retirements and quitting following the shooting. I doubt that will deter him from staying a course that will, in the long run, save black lives.

Let us remember that nearly half the murders and half the murderers in this country are black. If black lives mattered, the NAACP would be calling for better police protection. It does not. Ignore it. Don't answer its siren call to a debate. As Admiral Ackbar said in one of the "Star Wars" movies, "It's a trap."

What did Trump say?
Last night’s horrific execution-style shootings of 12 Dallas law enforcement officers -- five of whom were killed and seven wounded -- is an attack on our country. It is a coordinated, premeditated assault on the men and women who keep us safe.
We must restore law and order. We must restore the confidence of our people to be safe and secure in their homes and on the street.
The senseless, tragic deaths of two people in Louisiana and Minnesota reminds us how much more needs to be done.
This morning I offer my thoughts and prayers for all of the victims’ families, and we pray for our brave police officers and first responders who risk their lives to protect us every single day.
Our nation has become too divided. Too many Americans feel like they've lost hope. Crime is harming too many citizens. Racial tensions have gotten worse, not better. This isn't the American Dream we all want for our children.
This is a time, perhaps more than ever, for strong leadership, love and compassion. We will pull through these tragedies.
That third paragraph was telling. Like Romney before him (George, not Mitt) Trump acknowledged the legitimacy of the complaint. The NAACP keeps picking cases that are problematic, and I think deliberately so. Dividing the nation over whether Michael D. Brown is a gentle giant or a rampaging bully serves their purpose. I fell into that trap. Let's not all get snared. Ignore them. Defy them. Unite.

  2. "Let us remember that nearly half the murders and half the murderers in this country are black. If black lives mattered, the NAACP would be calling for better police protection."

    Just like the vast majority of alleged moderate Muslims don't speak out against their most radical fellow Muslims, African-Americans are not about to rise up against the long-standing criminal element in their community. The grievance industry is alive and prospering in the black community after 7+ years of Obama. I'm coming to view both groups the same, Muslims and blacks, as threats to my safety and well being. A pox on both.

    And while it was politically correct of Trump to call the shooting in MN a senseless killing, if the victim turns out to be the second suspect in an armed robbery on July 2 as some reports have it, no one should be mourning another Michael Brown and another Ferguson incident.

    1. According to blogger sundance (who got the lowdown on the Ferguson shooting of Michael Brown absolutely right when the media were pushing The Narrative):

      From the radio dispatch of Officer Jeronimo Yanez:

      “I’m going to stop a car. I’m going to check IDs. I have reason to pull it over.”

      “The two occupants just look like people that were involved in a robbery. The driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ‘cause of the wide set nose.”

      So, the cops stop a car because one of the occupants looks like a suspect in an earlier armed robbery---not because of a broken taillight---and the suspect driver has a gun sitting on his lap as the cops approach---a gun for which he has no permit---and then he makes a move that the cops interpret as threatening so they shoot him. And in response to this killing of a likely gangster in MN, police officers are killed in TX. Then the politicians who thrive off this kind of criminality issue the call for peace and unity of all Americans. Well, count me out, America. Obama and his Black Mafia in the Justice Department have carefully laid the groundwork for all the current racial hatred and violence, and I'm not about to get on board with anything they have in mind because I wasn't born last night and I'm not crazy.

  3. The reason we should not listen to Trump.
    "The senseless, tragic deaths of two people in Louisiana and Minnesota reminds us how much more needs to be done.

    If Trump ascribes to the actions of criminals as "legitimate complaints" then we are all doomed by his jumping to conclusions.

    From the Trump Lovers at Conservative Treehouse comes proof that the Minnesota shooting resulted when an armed crime suspect would not obey police orders. The Baton Rouge molesting suspect had a handgun.

    1. "an armed crime suspect would not obey police orders"

      This is a pattern that is repeated over and over in the videos that have gone viral on the Internet: the police attempt to arrest a black person, who then physically resists being handcuffed, a desperate struggle breaks out, and then the police end up shooting the suspect, sometimes to keep the suspect from taking the cop's gun. From a teen-age girl dressed in a bikini at an unauthorized pool party in Texas, to sketchy characters who bolt when questioned at a traffic stop, these days blacks refuse to obey even reasonable police orders and then act as if they are immune from arrest...which is bound to lead to some seriously bad outcomes. I don't think you have to look hard to discover why and how they got such a big chip on their shoulders---Obama, I'm looking at you, bro.

      Police are not always reasonable in dealing with the public, they sometimes overstep their authority, on occasion they don't know the law and violate the rights of the public, but ignoring an order given by a cop and then resisting arrest when he loses his cool is likely to produce nothing but hurt. Instead, do what the cop says, then sue the heck out of the police department if you think he was in the wrong.

    2. You think that is proof NOT to listen to Trump?
      Good -- vote for Hillary.

  5. There are always miscarriages of justice. It's why we have courts.

    All Trump did was tell his black supporters he understands not all black people are thugs.

    He is no fool.

  6. For nine years, the elephant in the room has been how Barack #Obama never condemned the #NewBlackPantherParty's call to assassinate cops when he marched with them in Selma in '07... And "mainstream" #media still won't mention this, even though that same group is making violent news now. Some references: https://plus.google.com/+joekiddone/posts/Z5TvVHTVm18

  7. Here are a few factoids from Heather MacDonald by way of Instapundit:

    1. Violent crimes are disproportionately committed by blacks. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, blacks were charged with 62% of all robberies, 57% of murders and 45% of assaults in the 75 largest U.S. counties in 2009, though they made up roughly 15% of the population there.

    2. According to FBI data, 40% of cop killers have been black. Officers are killed by blacks at a rate 2.5 times higher than the rate at which blacks are killed by police.
