Democratic Underground posters think the police should allow reckless drivers to continue going 100 mph while weaving through traffic

According to this recent news story from Associated Press, a pickup truck in San Diego was

weaving through traffic at speeds of up to 100 mph

This kind of irresponsible and illegal behavior can end up killing innocent people in other vehicles.

For example, you know that awesome movie A Christmas Story from 1983, about a young boy who wants a BB gun for Christmas?

Well, Bob Clark, the director of that wonderful film, was killed by a reckless driver who was driving the wrong way in another vehicle. Clark’s son was also killed in the crash.

Anyway, in the recent San Diego incident, the police used a spike strip to stop the pickup truck so innocent people in other vehicles would not get killed.

Instead of stopping his vehicle, the driver of the pickup truck ran over the spike strip. This caused the truck to crash and roll over. Eleven people were in the pickup truck, with most of them being in the truck’s bed, which is illegal. Three of the people in the truck were killed, and the other eight were seriously injured.

Thanks to the police, no innocent people were hurt or killed.

I agree with what the police did.

On the other hand, people at Democratic Underground think the police should have allowed the truck’s reckless driver to continue going 100 mph while weaving through traffic.

Here are some of their comments, taken from this thread and this other thread:

“Can this situation at the Border possibly get any worse? When do the tanks roll?”

“we’ll be reminded in the future how extreme this has become and it won’t be fondly”

“Highway speeds, pickup, people in the back, rain…. spike strip. What could go wrong? These mother****ers didn’t even get held accountable during Obama’s administration. There’s no hope of justice or integrity now. Manslaughter with impunity.”

“Sounds like murder to me. What crime was committed that warranted deadly force?”

“This is obscene.”

“‘This is obscene.’ Says it all.”

“what the border cops did was reckless and led to unnecessary deaths. This truck was weaving in and out of traffic at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. The shoulders on that stretch of freeway were trenched next to the lane for drainage or something so it wasn’t safe for rapid deceleration. They knew that. What they did was no different than if they had pulled up next to the truck and opened fire, like in a movie.”

“JESUS CHRIST! What the **** is wrong with them? Sick ****. That device should never be used anyway.”

“Welcome to Trump’s Amerikkka. Border Patrol and ICE should be wearing white sheets with hoods.”

Councilwoman wants police department to hire black police officers who can’t read well enough to do their job

A city councilwoman in Oakland, California, wants the police to lower their standards on their written test so more blacks can become police officers. The exam measures reading comprehension and other things that are necessary for the police to properly to their job.

You know what? I’m sick of fighting against this kind of nonsense. And I don’t live in that city anyway. So let them adopt her proposal. Let’s see what happens when a city hires police officers who don’t know how to read at the level that their job requires. It would make a great experiment.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

An Oakland City Council member who wants the Police Department to hire more African American officers has focused her attention on the written exam for new applicants — which is the point where many candidates get eliminated.

Councilwoman Desley Brooks suggested the department could consider lowering the passing score on the written test or getting rid of the exam altogether.

The exam… measures reading comprehension, and knowledge of certain vocabulary words — such as “corroborate.”

… the written exam is a critical indicator of whether an officer can fill out police reports, gather testimony from witnesses and comprehend the laws he or she has to enforce.

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.

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.
