Trayvon’s Death Taught Liberals Nothing

Much too quickly after the death of big Mike Brown in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, the Trayvon Martin dream team — ambulance chasers Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks, media hound Al Sharpton — descended on his still warm body like so many turkey vultures.
One would have hoped that their twisted performance in Florida during the previous two years would have taught America’s liberals something — prudence, restraint, skepticism — but it did not. Led by their media, liberals once again rushed in where wise men fear to tread.

As expected, the media insisted on telling the same embarrassingly fraudulent story they had told in the Martin shooting: innocent teen, academically ambitious, minding his own business, profiled by racist white vigilante — this time a cop — and shot for no reason other than his race.

Consider the Washington Post’s August 12 article on Michael Brown. Over the picture of Brown in his cap and gown was the sappy headline, “Mike Brown notched a hard-fought victory just days before he was shot: A diploma.”

At first glance, the article looks like it might have come from the Onion or some other satirical site. Brown had been shot three days prior, and, appallingly, the Post reporters could conjure an image of Brown no more accurate than this.

Carrying A Defensive Handgun In Urban Environments

Published on: August 20, 2014

A violent crime can occur anywhere at any given moment. However, it should not be a surprise to anyone that violent crime occurs more often in urban environments than in suburban or rural communities. A person venturing into a well-populated city for business or recreation would be well advised to conduct some pre-trip planning to ensure a safe stay. Accordingly, persons who are concerned about big city crime may wish to legally carry their firearms for personal protection during their visit. Appropriate arrangements should be made to ensure a hassle-free and safe experience.

The first consideration for carrying a firearm in the city is to ensure you are aware of any local ordinances regarding firearms. In some states, such as Michigan, firearm laws are “pre-empted” at the state level. As such, firearm laws are uniform and the same all across the state. However, in other states, such as North Carolina, gun laws may vary depending on what county you are visiting. Furthermore, different cities within a county may have varying laws at the city level. Failing to know the laws of the city you are visiting is not a legally valid excuse of running afoul of them.

You should be aware of the statutorily defined “gun-free zones” in the city you are visiting. In addition, you should also research all of the businesses on your itinerary to see if they have any company-specified bans on carrying firearms for visitors. If your plans involve traveling to and entering these areas, you must decide upfront what you are going to do with your gun. You may elect to leave your firearm in your vehicle, if local law allows you to do so, but please be mindful that criminals frequently prowl parking lots of “gun-free zones” looking to steal firearms from unattended vehicles. Thus, if you must leave your gun in your car, it would be wise to secure it in a car safe.

If the risk of having your firearm stolen from your vehicle is too great for comfort, you may want to have it secured in a safe in your hotel room or in a safe at the hotel’s front desk. Do not just leave your firearm unattended in a hotel room, despite how well you think you can hide it. If there are no safes available at the hotel or you can’t securely store your gun in your vehicle, you’re best bet may be to leave it at home.

Gabe Suarez: How NOT To Get Shot By The Police!

The concern is that the good guy CCW, or off duty LEO for that matter, taking out the bad guy might be misidentified by responding police and shot. Police shoot one of their own every 18 months around the nation so it is a very plausible event. Contributing factors seem to be as follows -

You are more likely to be mistakenly shot by police in areas where the carry of weapons by citizens is not common. Places like New York or Los Angeles immediately come to mind. The notion seems to be that only cops or criminals have guns. This is not the attitude I see nationwide but it is prevalent enough in those areas to be aware of it.

You are more likely to be shot if the first thing the police see is the gun….specially if it is pointed in their direction. Understand that not all officers are well trained by their agencies and some may over react to the obvious sight of a weapon, not stopping to think of who is holding it or why.

The Ferguson Fix Is In (Innocent Cops Will Be Railroaded Like Zimmerman)

Published on: August 20, 2014

As mass hysteria over the fatal shooting of a Ferguson, Missouri resident Michael Brown grips the progressive movement, President Obama is sending the most divisive, corrupt race-baiter in his cabinet to the riot-torn St. Louis suburb where the suspect died.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who has single-mindedly focused on converting the Department of Justice into a racial grievance incubator, is scheduled to visit Ferguson, Mo., today in an appearance billed as an attempt to restore calm to a community that has erupted in almost daily violence since Brown, a young black man, was shot Aug. 9 by a police officer. Left-wingers who believe as an article of faith that America is racist insist, despite the growing body of exculpatory evidence, that Brown was murdered by a white policeman. They will not be dissuaded no matter how much proof accumulates that the officer fired on Brown because he believed his life was in danger.

The visit comes as the Left’s narrative that the nearly 300-lbs. Brown, who had just robbed a convenience store minutes before encountering decorated policeman Darren Wilson, was an innocent gentle giant trying to surrender, unravels more and more each day. More witnesses are coming forward to identify Brown as the aggressor in a vicious attack on Wilson in which he tried to grab the gun of the six-year veteran of the Ferguson police force and inflicted head injuries so severe that the officer may lose an eye.

Yet the belief that Brown is the real victim remains strong in many circles.

Bloomturd’s Departing Front Man for Gun Control Admits Anti-Gun Policies DO NOT Work

A stunning admission from the man who, until recently, was described as “the face of the gun control movement” for billionaire anti-gunner Michael Bloomberg, could have some blowback for the gun prohibition lobby because he candidly stated that none of the solutions proposed by anti- gunners would have stopped mass shootings

Mark Glaze, who stepped down as executive director of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns and more recently, Bloomberg’s $50 million so-called “grassroots” Everytown for Gun Safety, observed, “Because people perceive a mismatch in the policy solutions that we have to offer and the way some of these mass shootings happened, you know, it is a messaging problem for us, I think. … Is it a messaging problem when a mass shooting happens and nothing that we have to offer would have stopped that mass shooting? Sure it’s a challenge in this issue.” Glaze doesn’t blame gun control failures on the fact that the message is wrong, however. According to the Wall Street Journal, which did a story on Glaze’s departure from the gun prohibition movement, the fault actually lies with President Barack Obama’s “unrelated political problems” including health care, Edward Snowden and congressional gridlock

Trend toward stand your ground laws emerges nationally

Americans are more empowered than they have ever been by stand your ground or similar laws to use firearms to protect themselves and their property, though the laws are applied inconsistently across the country, a News21 analysis shows.

Since 2005, 31 states have adopted stronger self-defense laws, making it more difficult for police and prosecutors to prove a person breaks the law when acting in self-defense and making it more difficult to sue those people if they are found not guilty of a crime.

The laws have been invoked for everything from road rage that ended in gunfire to suspected thieves who were shot to death as they tried to flee.

In a recent Texas case, a woman is expected to claim self-defense for fatally shooting her neighbor through her locked front door because she thought he was trying to break in. The man she killed was an off-duty Houston firefighter who, for reasons unknown, was at the woman’s door following a day of drinking with friends on St. Patrick’s Day this year.

The Second Amendment Only Applies to the Elite in Libturd Amerikkka!

Shaneen Allen was stopped in Atlantic County, New Jersey and the County Prosecutor is named James McClain. This man has the authority to show leniency in cases like these. There are pre-trial intervention programs for non-violent first time offenders that allow people who make mistakes to avoid jail time and felony convictions.

The judge in the case gave the green light for Shaneen Allen to go into this program. The pre-trial program director said that Shaneen Allen would be a perfect candidate because she was a non-violent offender.

However, Prosecutor James McClain refused to approve the request. He wanted to “make an example of her.” So now, Shaneen Allen has no choice but to go to trial, where a conviction would bring a mandatory minimum of three years in prison… all for exercising a constitutional right!

A few months ago, NFL Running Back Ray Rice was caught on camera beating his girlfriend in an Atlantic City elevator, knocking her unconscious, and dragging her body away. James McClain was also the prosecutor in that case. But instead of making an example of the Baltimore Ravens star football player, the Prosecutor allowed Ray Rice to avoid a potential felony conviction by enrolling in the pre-trial intervention program.

So let me get this straight… there is a man on camera savagely beating his fiancée and because he is a wealthy football player, he was shown leniency. But an African-American single mother of two isn’t afforded the same opportunity???

The truth is that unless you are a member of the elite, your rights mean nothing. You have no rights unless these Leftist regimes give you permission!

The founding fathers penned the words “shall not infringed,” but nowadays, politicians expect us to prove a justifiable need to own or carry weapons.

The Bill of Rights doesn’t work that way!

The Dirty Little Secret About The Difference Between White And Black Americans On Ferguson

Published on: August 19, 2014

If you say that we should have an “honest” discussion about what’s going on in Ferguson, it makes people think that hard truths are going to be spoken and we’re all going to deeply disagree.

But, what if the dirty little secret is that MOST people, black and white, liberal and conservative, are actually on pretty much the same page about the shooting of Mike Brown?

If Mike Brown surrendered to that officer and the policeman shot him anyway, like every conservative I know, I want that cop to do hard time for it. However, I do think we should find out everything that happened before we render judgment on the situation. “Justice” in this situation may mean that the police officer ends up in jail because he shot Mike Brown after he surrendered. On the other hand, “justice” may mean an acknowledgment that the officer was justified in shooting Mike Brown because Brown was aggressively running towards him after getting in a struggle for his gun. That’s why we have trials — so we can find out what really happened in cases like this instead of judging it via rumors and wild accusations on Twitter. Hopefully, the idea that this should be sorted out in a courtroom isn’t a big area of disagreement for most Americans, black or white.

Now, some people might say white people don’t get upset about black men being shot by the police. That’s generally true. But, in all fairness, we don’t get upset about white men being shot by the police either. If some white kid who gets high and robs a convenience store gets shot tomorrow, there aren’t going to be any white protests over it.That doesn’t mean it’s okay for the police to fire at will. I think it’s appropriate to take the police to task if they shoot a DOG unnecessarily; so you bet it’s not okay for them to blow away a human being without good cause. Policemen do incredibly difficult work and they deserve a lot of respect for that, but they also have to be held to the highest standards so they have the moral authority to do their job.

When Cops Wear Cameras: Use of Force Declines 60%

Tags: No Tags
Comments: No Comments
Published on: August 19, 2014

Sometimes, like the moments leading up to when a police officer decides to shoot someone, transparency is an unalloyed good. And especially lately, technology has progressed to a point that it makes this kind of transparency not just possible, but routine.

So it is in Rialto, Calif., where an entire police force is wearing so-called body-mounted cameras, no bigger than pagers, that record everything that transpires between officers and citizens. In the first year after the cameras’ introduction, the use of force by officers declined 60%, and citizen complaints against police fell 88%.

It isn’t known how many police departments are making regular use of cameras, though it is being considered as a way of perhaps altering the course of events in places such as Ferguson, Mo., where an officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager.

What happens when police wear cameras isn’t simply that tamper-proof recording devices provide an objective record of an encounter—though some of the reduction in complaints is apparently because of citizens declining to contest video evidence of their behavior—but a modification of the psychology of everyone involved.

It’s hard to have sympathy for anyone in the Ferguson affair — the cops, the demonstrators, the pontificating politicians, the exploitative media or we its pathetically loyal audience that keeps tuning in. The whole event plays out like the umpteenth rerun of the famous quote from Marx about history repeating itself, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.

By that accounting we should all be at Aristophanes, Moliere or Groucho (pick your favorite farceur) times ten by now.

Unfortunately, however, it’s farce with virtually no comedy, no humor. The Ferguson affair is a grim business indeed, particularly grim watching the latest nightly edition — the eighth one! — on television Monday evening. On and on it goes, the roundelay of police and demonstrators, tear gas and bloviation. We even have the old standbys from the O.J. trial (Dr. Baden Baden Baden) making an appearance for the second of who knows how many autopsies to be conducted. Where is Marcia Clark? And there must be someone Alan Dershowitz can represent? Admittedly, the good professor has hands full with the Israeli-Palestinian conflagration, but he has retired from Harvard Law so he should have some free time to multi-task. And most of all — where’s Geraldo? It’s hard to believe he’s not on the scene by now, flagellating us all about America’s perpetual racial crisis.

Black Commie Radicals Descend on Ferguson to “Destroy Passerby”

Published on: August 19, 2014

On one corner of a battered stretch of West Florissant Avenue, the epicenter of ongoing protests, young men pull dark scarves up over their mouths and lob molotov cocktails at police from behind makeshift barricades built of bricks and wood planks. They call the gasoline-filled bottles “poor man’s bombs.”

The young men yell expletives and, with a rebel’s bravado, speak about securing justice for Michael Brown, the black teen fatally shot Aug. 9 by a white police officer, “by any means necessary.”

They are known here as “the militants” — a faction inhabiting the hard-core end of a spectrum that includes online organizers and opportunistic looters — and their numbers have been growing with the severity of their tactics since the shooting.

Each evening, hundreds gather along West Florissant in what has become the most visible and perilous ritual of this St. Louis suburb’s days of frustration following Brown’s death. Dozens have been arrested, many injured by tear-gas canisters and rubber bullets fired by a police force dressed in riot gear and armed with assault rifles.

But the demonstrators are as diverse as their grievances — and in their methods of addressing them.

Some of the men are from the area — Ferguson or surrounding towns also defined in part by the gulf separating the mostly white law enforcement agencies from a mistrusting African American public. Many others — it is hard to quantify the percentage — have arrived by bus and by car from Chicago, Detroit, Brooklyn and elsewhere.

They will not give their names. But their leaders say they are ready to fight, some with guns in their hands. “This is not the time for no peace,” said one man, a 27-year-old who made the trip here from Chicago.

He spoke after a small group of fellow militants held a meeting behind a looted store, sketching out ambitions for the days ahead.

“We are jobless men, and this is our job now — getting justice,” he said. “If that means violence, that’s okay by me. They’ve been doing this to us for years.”

What Black Parents Tell Their Sons About Police Shootings

When I was growing up, my parents often gave me pep talks that were different from the ones my white male friends got from their parents.

My parents still worry about me. Maybe you can call it being overprotective, but it goes beyond saying such things as, “Make sure you put on your seat belt.” or “Don’t get in the car with someone who has been drinking.” These are the things most parents tell their kids.

However, my parents wanted me to know that every time I walked out the front door I was going to be judged as a “black male” first.

What does that mean? It means knowing how to deal with police and law enforcement when confronted or stopped.

They also told me how to handle situations in department stores when extra eyes were on me thinking I was going to steal.

Radio caller: Michael Brown rushed officer

Published on: August 18, 2014

The Ferguson, Missouri, police officer who killed Michael Brown says the teenager rushed at him full speed in the moments before the shooting, according to an account phoned into a St. Louis radio station and confirmed as accurate by a source with detailed knowledge of the investigation.

According to the account on KTFK, phoned in by a woman who identified herself as “Josie,” the altercation began after Officer Darren Wilson rolled down his window to tell Brown and a friend to stop walking in the street.

When Wilson tried to get out of his cruiser, Brown first tried to push the officer back into the car, then punched him in the face and grabbed for his gun before breaking free after the gun went off once.

Wilson pursued Brown and his friend, ordering them to freeze, according to account. When they turned around, Brown began taunting Wilson, saying he would not arrest them, then ran at the officer at full speed, according to the caller.

Wilson then began shooting. The final shot was to Brown’s forehead, and the teenager fell two or three feet in front of Wilson, the caller said.

The account matches Wilson’s telling of events to investigators, according to the source.

If true, the account represents the first telling of events from the perspective of Wilson, whose shooting of Brown has touched off nightly protests and violence in the suburban St. Louis city.
