See No Evil

Minnesota, that bastion of Walter Mondale, doesn't want police using their eyes:
  • Minneapolis has wiped away laws that banned lurking and spitting, responding to critics who said they unfairly targeted minorities.

    The Minneapolis City Council voted 12-1 on Friday to repeal the ordinances. Mayor Betsy Hodges called the ordinances antiquated and unnecessary.

    Minnesota Public Radio reports that Council President Barb Johnson cast the lone no vote. She said the lurking law allowed police to stop people before they committed crimes in neighborhoods like the north side ward she represents.

    But advocacy groups targeted the ordinances after high-profile shootings in other cities raised tension between police and citizens.
So because of supposed "tension" elsewhere, the city council of Minneapolis decided to do away with the old "up-to-no-good" observations that officers make dozens of times a shift, lest the police find someone who was actually up to no good.

We've become an odd country...laws are put on the books by Pols...Police must follow those laws. Now, in many instances, the general population is not required to follow all the laws so the Pols take away the laws so that the Police are restricted to do their over-all job of safety and security....Sensible and Law-Abiding citizens are screwed.

Dosent she know that blacks always spit when they see the police. Just watch some black jackass waiting for the bus and see a squad car pull up at the light automatic spit. Or maybe they just foaming at the mouth from to much jail sex.

These lefty moon-bats really want the Police to
back the fuck up, don't they?

The War on Police continues unabated.
The Police are the enemy.
Duty to Retreat is here.
Giving the mob "room to destroy"
IS real.

The Policeman didn't break society.
The tangled wreckage that WAS the society we used to know
is sliding closer toward the abyss and it's picking up speed...

Kinda like those disaster movies when falling massive
machinery, cables and debris goes cascading into an unfathomable
depth and is dragging every sad, sorry and very unfortunate ass
along with it.

The progressives think this shit is funny as long as it only happens
to "other" people.

They're smart an' shit...

The real screaming starts when they realize THEY'RE
trapped with everybody else.

Whither the Police?
Would they be justified in turning their backs on society
in self defense?

Is walking away an option?

How will society react?
Will there be glee?
Is society prepared to
defend itself?

"Hey you Cops! Get back to work!"

This Policing thing...
Who in hell would want to work it nowadays?

So much capital expended to destroy it because?

Liberals are suicidal. They would rather be dead than be considered narrow minded. The problem is, they're going to get ALL of us killed unless we can stop them from doing idiotic things. Did ya ever try to get a liberal to NOT do something stupid? Impossible.

In Minnesota, not all of the loons are on the lake. Some are legislators, you betcha.

Here's what the Minneapolis Star-Tribune editorial said -- and some of it seems like it would apply in Chiraq, too:

"Council President Barb Johnson . . . along with downtown business and police union leaders . . . believes that law enforcement authorities need livability laws to help promote public safety and civil behavior. . .

Those laws should be left alone. As the Star Tribune Editorial Board argued when the repeals were proposed, addressing racially biased policing is important. But it is also vital for all citizens to feel secure as they walk city streets. Livability laws give officers legal tools to deal with aggressive, threatening and disorderly behavior that makes city streets seem unsafe.

Livability concerns are especially important to address downtown, so that thousands of workers can move about the city core during the day without worrying that something bad will happen. In the evenings, sports fans and arts patrons, diners and club customers should have pleasant experiences as they come and go from venues.

Downtown is becoming more residential, too, and taxpayers are investing millions in parks, stadiums and a new Nicollet Mall. The region’s business, government and entertainment center attracts thousands of visitors through conventions, concerts and other major events. To get the most from those opportunities, confidence in public safety is key.

. . .

Striking the right balance and enforcing livability laws fairly is challenging. But the city must meet that challenge so that all will feel safe on the streets — and certain groups won’t feel at risk of unfair targeting."

Once upon a time, tuberculosis ran rampant throughout the country, prompting laws against spitting in order to lessen the spread of deadly disease. But we've eliminated that problem, right?

Minneapolis has experienced a growing Muslim population, so I guess as they plan to blow something up, they won't worry about being stopped by the Police for 'lurking.'

That's good. A place that's loaded with Somalians who are sympathetic to radical Islam. They just re-elected Al Franken in Minnesota also. If they want to die, there's not much you can do about it. They'll let the solid Democratic voting block kill them before they'll offend them. A world gone mad.

I suspect the courts would not look especially favorably at the lurking law. Maybe better just to get rid of laws that are not enforceable.

The spitting laws were often enacted due to TB scares where it was thought TB was spread by spitting. Since it turns out that spitting does not spread TB, maybe it is better to just get rid of the law.

A lot of the strife and hostility will be cured by the administration and HUD's plan to build affordable housing in affluent neighborhoods gets underway. Affluent and uber wealthy neighborhoods need an infusion of the poor and lower middle class to increase their diversity and promote racial harmony.

Why should it be up to the police to enforce livability laws and social standards? It should be the job of every citizen. If some mutt is harassing me and/or my family,or trying to steal my i-phone, that should be my problem and my job to stop it using any amount of force necessary to to put a stop to the anti-social behavior. Of course that would mean every citizen would be provided defensive training and be allowed to carry a firearm. Who was it that said "an armed society is often a more peaceful society".

OK... Let's drop all pretense and throw all of the public peace
and order ordinances out the fucking window to appease these
loony progressive white-guilters and their "protected demographic"
grievance industry lackeys and knee-walking local media propagandists
who so energetically stir the coals under the anti-Police pot.

You want to legislate that mean and evil Po-leece not see shit and
be duty-bound to act on said shit?

A bunch of damned, tone-deaf, blind and willfully ignorant
fools, the lot of you...

"You see that? Let's get 'em!"

Naww pardnah... You gotta be ok with averting your eyes and letting shit go
because it's a new muthafuckin' day for Police and Policing.

Damned if you do...
Not damned so much if you don't.
The Policeman rests easier because
he sees clearly what society now wants
from him. Afterall, The Policeman is an
expert at surviving schizoid cultural swings.

He gets the fuck out the way and makes himself
a small, hard to hit target for the powers that are
gunning for him.

The powers are indignant:
"How DARE you cops try to protect yourselves
from US!"

Fuck It.
Keep Driving...

Radio assignments ONLY.
Keep your care and concern to yourselves
and roll to the next one.

Unfortunately, laws banning lurking and especially spitting do have disparate impact. Spitting is like playing loud rap music - it's just the beginning of an escalating continuum of violence. Once they know they can get away with one level, they ratchet it up another level.

Some where over the years... Police officers have forgot or intentionally forgotten, that is it what society expects of the Police, is what matters... The idea of Police deciding that, is common to our 3rd world friends... lets not forget that.
