Idiots are protesting against the convenience store where Michael Brown stole merchandise and assaulted an employee

Before Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, this security footage from Ferguson Market and Liquor showed Brown stealing merchandise and assaulting a store employee. Skip to 1:13

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbPbX76cOVQ

Four years later, this brand new article form the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says:

“Protesters believe that the surveillance clip mischaracterized Brown.”

The protestors aren’t saying that the footage was edited, altered, or changed in any way.

Instead, they are saying that the footage mischaracterized Brown.

They are wrong. Instead, the footage shows exactly what Michael’s Brown’s character was like.

The protestors have also made the following demands of the store:

Address Michael Brown Jr.’s character.

Close the store for three days on the anniversary of his death.

Create a scholarship in his name.

Find ways to interact and give back to the community.

Stop selling Dormin, a sleeping capsule, and other items that can be misused to get high.

Retain a black-owned security company to protect the store.

The same article states:

… the store ultimately agreed to all of the requests by Wednesday, other than closing the store for three days. Instead, he said, the store would close on the anniversary of Brown’s death and provide a free barbecue the day before.

The store never did anything wrong in the first place, so there was no rational reason for the protestors to make these demands, and there was no rational reason for the store to cave in to their demands.

Here’s a photograph of people protesting against the store:

Starbucks is opening its first cafe in Ferguson

Starbucks is opening its first cafe in Ferguson, Missouri. It is contracting with local and minority firms. It is teaming up with a local non-profit.

Starbucks certainly has the best of intentions.

What the actual results will be will up to the people who live in the community.

Will they treat this Starbucks the same way that people in most neighborhoods treat their local Starbucks?

Or, will they smash the windows, loot it, and burn it down?

Only time will tell.

Poll: “Congrats Michael Brown one year with no criminal behavior”

I think this sign is a great idea, because it tells the truth. It seems to me the only people who would be upset by it are the people who don’t want people to know that Brown was a criminal. For example, Obama tried to block the release of the security video which showed Brown committing theft and assault, despite the fact that there had been multiple Freedom of Information requests for the video. I like this sign because it is a victory for the truth.

The News-Gazette reports:

Business’ sign causes a stir

August 13, 2015

FARMER CITY — A local business owner with a penchant for controversy set his sights on Ferguson, Mo., this week.

“Congrats Michael Brown one year with no criminal behavior,” the sign outside Schmidt’s Welding and Machine Shop in Farmer City read Tuesday and early Wednesday, days after the one-year anniversary of a Ferguson police officer shooting and killing unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.

Phil Schmidt, who owns the sign and the business, was unapologetic…

“It is what it is — all these people in Ferguson going crazy over a guy that broke the law three times that day, tried to kill a cop, tried to get his gun, it’s crazy,” Schmidt said Wednesday morning when contacted by The News-Gazette.

He added: “What they’re doing to cops makes me sick.”

Here’s a picture of the sign from the article:

Michael Brown sign

 

Here’s the video of Michael Brown committing theft and assault:

Why does the liberal, tolerant, and enlightened city of San Francisco arrest black women at 13 times the rate of women of other races?

Fusion.net reports:

Black women in San Francisco arrested way more often than white women, report shows

May 27, 2015

Black women represent 5.8% of the city’s female population, but accounted for 45.5% of all female arrests in 2013… For arrests related to weapons and narcotics—both felonies—black women made up 77% and 68% of all female arrests, respectively.

Black women were arrested “at a per capita rate 13.4 times higher than women of other races,” says the report.

Considering that San Francisco is said to be one of the most liberal, tolerant, and enlightened cities in the U.S., I wonder how this happened.

Despite having killed someone less than a month ago, “Black Lives Matter” protestors continue to block ambulances

This is really despicable.

Less than a month after a man died because “Black Lives Matter” protestors blocked an ambulance in Berkeley, “Black Lives Matter” protestors just blocked an ambulance in Boston.

The Boston Globe reports:

Protesters snarl morning commute on I-93 near Boston

Protesters affiliated with the activist group Black Lives Matter carried out their most audacious and disruptive demonstration yet in the Boston area Thursday, blocking the largest highway into the city, snarling rush-hour traffic, and stopping an ambulance in its tracks.

In a pair of coordinated surprise actions that angered commuters, the protesters formed human barricades on Interstate 93 north of the city in Medford, and south, in Milton. Some put barrels filled with concrete on the highway and chained themselves to them. Twenty-nine protesters were arrested.

Blocking traffic is not going to convert anyone to their point of view.

On the contrary, it makes them look ridiculous.

And if they are trying to prove that “black lives matter,” then blocking ambulances is an especially dumb thing to do. I guess it never occurred to them that the patient in the ambulance might be black. Or perhaps it did occur to them, but they just don’t care.

I wonder how many black people were late for work because of these protestors.

I wonder how many black people missed a job interview because of these protestors.

I wonder how many black college students missed an exam because of these protestors.

To any decent human being, black lives do indeed matter. But if black lives truly mattered to these protestors, they would not be preventing black people from getting to the hospital, to work, to job interviews, or to school. Instead, they would be doing something constructive – something positive and beneficial – that actually helped black people, instead of hurting them.

Good news for liberals who think it’s wrong for police to shoot violent thugs!

This is good news for liberals who think it’s wrong for the police to shoot violent thugs, because the police officer did not shoot the thug who was attacking him.

If the officer had shot him, liberals would be protesting against him for shooting an unarmed man.

The Dallas Morning News reports:

… a 26-year-old Florida man beat an officer…

… the officer suffered multiple cuts and bruises and showed signs of a brain injury.

Liberals who oppose police shooting violent thugs must be very happy about this.

They won’t be protesting against this police officer.

They won’t be smashing windows over his actions.

They won’t be looting over what he did.

They won’t be burning down businesses because of what he did.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson won’t be upset at this police officer.

Barack Obama and Eric Holder won’t be using the Justice Department to launch an investigation into this police officer’s actions.

Liberals who think it’s wrong for police to shoot violent thugs will be very happy at the outcome of this incident.

Here’s a way the police can avoid being accused of racial profiling

This writer gives a great way for the police to avoid being accused of racial profiling: if you see a black person committing a crime, do nothing. Let them commit the crime:

Solving the Police Problem

If They Don’t Want to be Policed, Don’t Police Them

December 31, 2014

It is obvious, is it not, that all of the recent problems with the police have occurred because cops keep meddling with people. If the fuzz had left Rodney King alone, Los Angeles would not have burned. If the cop in Ferguson had not stopped Michael Brown after he robbed the store, the town would not have burned. If a New York cop had not tried to keep from selling illegal cigarettes, there would be no protests. If OJ Simpson had not been prosecuted for murdering his wife, racial tension would have been less. On and on.

It is blindingly clear that nothing but trouble results when cops interact with criminals in places of high diversity. It makes no sense to meddle. It is racism. It is irresponsible. It leads to arson. It needs to stop.

And it can.

If you were a young white cop just out of the academy, and asked my advice, I would say, “When on the street, mind your own business.” For example, if you see a drug dealer on the corner peddling rock, what should you do? Nothing. Doing nothing protects you, protects the dealer, and keeps the locals from burning the neighborhood. As a police officer, it is your duty to protect.

Do nothing. Here’s why: Let us suppose that the dealer is young, weighs 290 and, when you try to arrest him, says, “Fuck off, whitey.” You are 35, 180, and haven’t been to the gym for a while. What can you do?

You could call for backup and five of you could swarm the guy, but that looks bad to the population. (“Dem white muhfuhs be gangin’ up on a brotha.”) Your other choices are try to wrestle him down, pepper-spray him, Tase him, club him, or shoot him. All of these are ugly to watch and upset the locals.

All have a chance of ending unhappily. The perp has asthma and the pepper spray does him in, or has a weak heart and the Taser croaks him.

Then here come Jesse and Al, Barack and Eric, the Four Horsemen of the Acopalypse. You will be raped in the media, lose your job and your mortgage, goodbye retirement, and face six months of media circus, death threats against your family, civil suits by the family and civil-rights charges by the feds.

Don’t risk it. You have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Leave drug peddlers alone. Don’t get involved.

Nonintervention, note, will please everybody. If your department really is brutal, as all are said to be, you can’t be brutal if you leave people alone. Complaints about misbehavior will diminish, pleasing blacks and liberals, and this will make your chief happy.

When you go on the street as a rookie, you will find that police incidents fall into three categories.

First, things that you encounter by chance: crack whores, bar fights, drug dealers, muggings, burglaries, the fifteen-year-old runaway being worked by her pimp, the guy breaking car windows to steal the GPS. These are the small change of police life. Ignore them. You can later say that you didn’t see anything. It is much harder for the feds to come after you for something you didn’t do than for something you did. Again, you have nothing to gain by interfering with local enterprise.

Second, hot calls: rape in progress, armed robbery in progress. You have to answer these because dispatchers record their radio traffic. They are, however, calls dangerous to you. For example, rapists often have violent tendencies. They usually do not want to go to jail. A rapist may attack you with a length of rebar, in which case your choices are to shoot him or have your skull crushed. How do you profit from either of these outcomes?

The armed robbery offers equal hazards with no rewards. Armed robbers typically are armed. In a shootout you very possibly get killed, which is not to your advantage, or the perp does. It then turns out that he was sixteen, wanted to go to divinity school, the gun was plastic or a cell phone. Brutality, extremism, overreaction, profiling, black lives matter, and here come the Four Horsemen.

But a wise cop can easily avoid these perils. Rapes don’t last long, nor do armed robberies. When you respond to the call, drive at the speed limit, stop for traffic lights, and hit the siren and bar lights well before you arrive at the scene. When you get there, the rapist will be long gone.

This is a happy ending for everyone. You are happy because you will not be charged with racially motivated murder. The rapist is happy because he will not go to jail. Businesses are happy because they won’t be looted, the locals because a brothah was not mistreated.

Be very careful of profiling beefs. Since this sin is not defined, you can never tell when you have committed it. Suppose you encounter a 2015 Beamer with the passenger-side window broken out, plates with rust stains around the bolt holes, and a nineteen-year-old driver in ghetto-bag attire who refuses to make eye contact. What do you do?

Nothing. It would be profiling. (If you saw him run out of a bank with a gun in one hand and a bag of money it the, and arrested him, it would be profiling.) Don’t risk it. The locals will appreciate your sensitivity.

Technical tip: Don’t run the tags out of curiosity. They will come back to a 2006 Camry, and you will be on electronic record as knowing the car was stolen and not doing anything about it. It isn’t your problem. The insurance company can handle it.

If you are of liberal leanings, you can think in terms of cost and benefit. Is an $80 GPS worth a man’s life? Should a rapist die because of ten minutes of bad sex? Ferguson burn over a handful of stolen cigars?

In black neighborhoods, you should do nothing at all in response to anything. This just shows a decent respect for the desires of the population, who do not like white cops, or any cops. (Chanting “What do we want? Dead cops”, would seem indicative.) Find a good bar or doughnut shop. Stay in it.

In mixed regions, arrest only middle-class whites over forty-five to avoid profiling. As for the neighborhoods of rich white liberals, they do not need police because they live in gated communities, so you probably will never be assigned there.

It is simple democracy. In regions that are almost entirely diverse, people do not want to be policed. It is unmistakable. Why force outside cops on them? It leads to chaos, arson, and armored shoe-stores. Should they not be allowed to police themselves as they choose, to the extent they choose, as towns once did? Live and let live. It is the American way.

Berkeley man dies after pro-Michael Brown protesters delay paramedics

Berkeley Man Dies After Pro-Michael Brown Protesters Delay Paramedics

December 23, 2014

A Berkeley man has died thanks to protesters who claim they are protesting against unnecessary deaths.

The man, who lived in a Kittredge Street apartment complex, collapsed several days ago while protests were going on in the streets around his home.

Paramedics attempted to rush to his aid, but were slowed and sometimes stopped by protesters. The protesters were demonstrating in favor of Michael Brown, an African American teen who was shot and killed after he assaulted and charged at a white police officer.

The protesters claimed they were in the streets to bring attention to unnecessary deaths caused by rash behavior.

The Berkeley man was eventually reached by paramedics and rushed to the hospital, but he passed away there. His death was likely preventable, but help arrived too late because of protesters.

“Anytime there is a delay it causes us concern,” said Berkeley Fire Chief Gil Dong. “Our objective is to get there rapidly so we can start treating the patient.” He was not able to comment further because of privacy laws.

Separately, a staffer stated that “no one could get to” the man in need, who was experiencing shortness of breath, “difficulty breathing, and sweating.”

When the delayed paramedics arrived, the man was already unconscious.

Black lives matter – except for the 93% of black murder victims who are killed by other blacks

Trayvon Martin.

Michael Brown.

Eric Garner.

John Crawford.

Tamir Rice.

Akai Gurley.

All of them were unarmed, young black males who were killed by someone who was not black.

White liberal protester to black cop: you don’t understand racism

In the video below, despite the fact that the black police officer tells the liberal protestor that he grew up in Jackson Mississippi where blacks and whites had separate bathrooms, and blacks had to sit in the back of the bus, the liberal protestor tells him that he does not understand racism.

At 1:24, the protestor says:

“You are a black man. You are kept down by your race even if you won’t accept it. It is a fact of your life.”

At 1:59 the protestor says:

“You’re a black man. You will never reach the same pinnacle as a white man in this system because you are black.”

Both of her comments sound horribly mean and condescending.

Also, while saying both of these things, the protestor sounds like she is angry at the police officer. She seems to be mad at him because what he says is the opposite of the politically correct things that she thinks all black people are supposed to say. She seem to have tremendous difficulty in dealing with the fact that black people have diversity in their opinions.

The police officer then goes on to say that he does volunteer work to help children of “my community,” which he says includes all races. The protestor then criticizes him because he considers his “community” to include all races, and she says that he should focus on helping the “black community” instead.

The protestor says she is a  U.C.L.A. student and her conversation with him is part of her research. But a legitimate researcher would never argue with the subject whom she is researching. Her so-called “research” is really just an attempt to “prove” that her pre-conceived notions are true, and she is not willing to accept any evidence to the contrary. The real world experience of this black police officer does not conform to the protestor’s theories, and so she has a tremendous amount of difficulty with accepting what he is saying.

As far as her claim that a black man “will never reach the same pinnacle as a white man in this system,” I wonder how she would explain that Barack Obama, a black man, is the most powerful person in the world.

Extreme media bias: CNN reporter says she was “shocked” to find out there were black witnesses whose testimony backed Darren Wilson

On November 25, 2014, CNN reporter Ashleigh Banfield said:

“I was shocked at the corroborative witnesses that backed Officer Wilson’s story. I didn’t know there was as many as there were and I didn’t know they were African-American.”

For crying out loud – she is a reporter at cable’s first all news network! If she didn’t know this until now, how could the general population have known it?

No wonder why so many people think Michael Brown was “murdered.”

Anyone who reads real news websites, such as Drudge Report and Free Republic, is not “shocked” about the existence of these witnesses, because we already knew about them a long time ago.

This proves that the mainstream media has failed to do its job in covering this news story.

Armed black men prevent Ferguson protestors from burning down white-owned business

Every decent human being would side with these armed black men.

On the other hand, the looters, arsonists, and anti-gun leftists would prefer to let this business be burned down.

Black residents protect white-owned store in Ferguson

November 26, 2014

One, a 6-foot-8-inches man named Derrick Jordan — “Stretch,” as friends call him — whisked an AR-15 assault rifle out from a pickup truck parked near the entrance.

Jordan, 37, was one of four black Ferguson residents who spent Tuesday night planted in front of the store, pistols tucked into their waistbands, waiting to ward off looters or catch shoplifters.

Jordan and the others guarding the gas station are all black. The station’s owner is white.

“We would have been burned to the ground many times over if it weren’t for them,” said gas station owner Doug Merello, whose father first bought it in 1984.

Obama illegally tried to block a Freedom of Information release of the video that shows Michael Brown committing theft and assault

Here is yet one more example of the “most transparent administration in history” illegally trying to block a Freedom of Information request.

On August 15, NRP reported:

[Ferguson Police Chief Thomas] Jackson said he had gotten numerous Freedom of Information Act requests from the media to release the video. “I had to release it,” he said.

“I had been sitting on it and too many people put in FOIA requests for it and I had to release it,” he said.
