Baltimore De-Policing

A pretty well written article - which is surprising considering it's from USA Today:
  • Just before a wave of violence turned Baltimore into the nation’s deadliest big city, a curious thing happened to its police force: officers suddenly seemed to stop noticing crime.

    Police officers reported seeing fewer drug dealers on street corners. They encountered fewer people who had open arrest warrants.

    Police questioned fewer people on the street. They stopped fewer cars.

    In the space of just a few days in spring 2015 – as Baltimore faced a wave of rioting after Freddie Gray, a black man, died from injuries he suffered in the back of a police van – officers in nearly every part of the city appeared to turn a blind eye to everyday violations. They still answered calls for help. But the number of potential violations they reported seeing themselves dropped by nearly half. It has largely stayed that way ever since.

    “What officers are doing is they’re just driving looking forward. They’ve got horse blinders on,” says Kevin Forrester, a retired Baltimore detective.
The entire article is extensive, covers both sides of the debate, and interviews a bunch of retired cops who have devastating insight into the political and social consequences of the "de-policing" phenomenon. Heather MacDonald did it first and more in depth, but for a USA Today article, it is deserving of a read.

Fetality explained!

Soon, and make no mistake this is a set up. The papers will be demonizing cops over their Fetalness and blame rising crime on lazy, money soaking, do nothing cops that are costing waaay too much tax money to produce next to no -wait for it- Proactive Policing!

Prepare your copy and paste function, SCC. The contradictory articles will now come fast and furious!

The de-policing movement is becoming so pervasive and widespread that even the lamest of the lame stream media can not ignore it or pretend it doesn't exist. They have to face the fact that it is the new reality.

And that reality scares them.

Stay fetal.

Let the libtards get the Thunderdome they wanted. Then when they can't stand it any longer (because it's not the utopia they thought it would be), one of two things will happen:

1) Conservatives will get elected to fix the libtard fuckup. And we will. The criminals won't like it, but the law-abiding will be able to go down the street in relative safety once again...

2) No law-abiding conservatives will be left, and the libtards can face off with the savages. Good luck. When the savages eat them all, maybe the Feds will turn the place into an Escape From Chiraq zone with 60' high walls around the city...

Either way works for me.

Oh yeah, almost forgot.
I am enjoying the de-policing in my neighborhood.
It is far better than the over-policing we used to get.
Like for instance, sometimes I make a driving mistake.
It may be an infraction of the law but a friendly warning would do.
NO NO NO.
Always a fucking ticket.
Well no more.
Thanks guys.
I like it much better this way.

Personally I wonder why democratic cities are even hiring new cops..... for what reason? To jam them up in federal court 2 or 3 years down the road. To fire them 10 years on the job— so they can wonder how to pay their mortgage🤔. Or the worst— when a cop eats his gun.

People in Big cities, do your self a favor and figure out if you hate the police or if the police are the problem— and get your self a fire arm for personal defense. Don’t do a hiring blitz— no one in their right mind wants this job.. and if those who have an IQ above 65 and waiting to leak off this job.

SCC off topic tip.. Loyola hospital is suing Sheriff Dart for millions for commandeering their hospital. According the suit the Sheriff has had inmate there for months and refuses to remove him despite the inmate being discharged in April costing millions in expenses to the hospital. The kicker is Tom Dart is always acting like he treats his inmates so humanely but this prisoner has been strapped and shackled to a bed for months according to the hospital.. And the hilarious thing is Dart always walks around with a Loyola pull over that looks like it hasn't seen a washing machine in years.

According to the suit, Cermak refused inmate and the Sheriff took him to the emergency room at Loyola Medical center several months ago.. He was discharged in early April, but the Sheriff refuses to remove him according to the suit.. Loyola claims he has been strapped/shacked to a bed for months while costing the hospital over $500,000 in medical expenses..

The hospital is asking the court to declare the county’s actions to be an illegal seizure of hospital property and resources, and to order the county to remove the inmate and reimburse the hospital for its expenses.

I enjoyed the comments by the ACLU rep, Jeffery Robinson. I guess he thinks the job is real easy and if the police are not doing their "Jobs" right they should be fired. What simplistic, smug thinking by the same people who created this mess to begin with and will make things much worse to the point of total anarchy and lawlessness. I see the police here and elsewhere finally walking away from their jobs and leaving the cities to the criminals in the near future.

For a small investment in days, of which the Govt. steals 1/3 anyway, I de-Policed and my blood pressure went down and ass felt better from not having to sit on those wooden benches anymore. Also I had no more bullets whizzing by my head.

Anybody catch some of that Congressional Hearing yesterday. The high ranking FBI agent actually thinks that Congress and the American people should believe that he would never allow his personal opinion sway his investigation. So let’s see this same guy investigated Hilary and found little or no wrong doing and called it “bad judgement and non criminal.” Then he initiated the Trump Russian collusion investigation which is still ongoing after a year where they have found no “collusion” but have indicted a few people for other things they found when going through they’re personal accounts with a fine tooth comb. And the same FBI agent was texting his girlfriend a high ranking lawyer within the FBI that “Trump can’t be president and we must stop him.” He clarified that the “we” he was talking about was the American people not his little group at the FBI and his girlfriend. And why shouldn’t we believe him after all he has such stellar character. Forget that he’s been cheating on and lying to his wife for god knowsnhow long about his affair. Not to mention all the thousands of other incriminating text messages he sent on his FBI phone. Like the one that said , “we need to come up with plan b if Hilary doesn’t get elected.” No shit huh. Hopefully plan b is prison.

This guy is a real piece of work. Smug little fucker as well. Guys like him are exactly why the Clintons can do whatever they want and know they can get away with it.

Just a Citizen says:
I look at it this way. The absence of God is hell. Not to say that LE is like God, but look at the comparison:

When I was growing up in unincorporated Roselle, IL, all LE Officers were FEARED and RESPECTED. This was in the 60's. You saw a police car behind you, you sat up straighter. You got pulled over, you shut up and listened and did what he asked. We held parades for the Sheriff's Dept. and the nearby local police departments. To us (us meaning normal, law abiding citizens) LE were there to protect us, to help us, to keep law and order in our neighborhood and to keep us from harm. But now? The liberal assholes (much like satan) are doing everything in their power to emasculate and castrate the very definition of what LE is all about. Therefore, my theory of "the absence of God is hell." If you take the people (LE) who are there for the very purpose to protect us, keep us from harm, instill law and order out of the picture, what you have is hell... or Detroit, Baltimore, LA, Chicago and any other major city where hood rats reside and democrats rule, aka, the demons.

Go ahead, make fun of me, but deep down, you know I'm right.

Chicago PD should change its motto to, "Minding Our Own Business" or better still, "Waiting for Retirement."

The progressive version of their "police" force is to be found in their base principles:

1. Take from those who have earned. (Taxes)

2. Take from those who have. (Fines, Fees, Surcharges, etc., via Permits, Licenses, Rules, etc., and the violation penalties for same.)

3. Enforce upon those who have earned, do not enforce upon those who are Us, progressives.


Thus, a re-modeling, re-forming and re-constituting of the specifications of the qualities of the progressive version of their required "police" force is seen to be no different than armed department of revenue collection agents. Aka, socialist thugs.


The transitioning is accomplished by using the 2nd and 3rd steps in the 3 step process of law enforcement's purpose, #2 = Prosecution, and #3 = Adjudication, to thwart all cases selectively chosen as errors committed by those employed to impose step #1 = Enforcement.

Thus, the socialist, aka progressive, agenda is implemented.

MAGA is toxic to progressives.

MAGA is the DDT to the progressive mosquito mentality.

MAGA restores sanity to the progressively insane.

MAGA is the authentic, Salt of the Earth, Golden Rule, Spirit of America.

All else is mere distraction.

The Democrats would rather spend money on ceasefire, you this organization:
“He uses his past to help stop killing today. And he is great at it,” wrote Slutkin, a University of Illinois at Chicago professor and the founder of CeaseFire’s parent organization, Cure Violence. “I know he is out of gang life as much as anyone can know.”

Neither Lassar nor Slutkin responded to calls for comment Wednesday.

Sanchez is hardly the first CeaseFire employee to be accused of a crime. Since its inception in 2000, the group has been controversial, especially in the eyes of Chicago police officers who don’t trust the CeaseFire workers because many have criminal backgrounds. More than a dozen have faced charges ranging from drug sales to domestic violence.

Curiously, absent in the article:

- mayor being told to “give them space” to loot and riot
- police commissioner or sup repeatedly claiming years of systemic racism from his own police force
- citizens demands to police themselves
- sensationalized witch hunt against police
- black crime statistics
- specifics about what proactive means, i.e., narcotics investigations and street stops. Please explain to public, media, since you are the experts. Police see what you describe as a dope spot yelling “hard body” and lookouts. Well, explain how this is portrayed in court. Hand to hand transaction? “Officer, what gave you the right to conduct a custodial search of my client? Because you saw him exchange small items? Did you see the contents of this alleged item, the size of a dime or smaller, from 25 feet? If so, Do you have super powers?”

How about a terry stop with RAS for dope. Isn’t this harassment? Pockets, by law, may only be crushed, not manipulated, for a protective patdown, and that’s just for weapons. Are they advocating officers go through suspected drug dealer’s pockets?! civil rights violations, harassment!

I do like how they specific police response times are faster than ever. They also have a nice chart showing drop in police on-views correlating to increase in calls for service. Isn’t this police doing their job?

Commenters saying “fire police for not doing their job” are funny. They are. Then they argue looking past dope spots is failure to execute their duties and they’re just mad they can’t beat black people. This just shows their complete ignorance in what is deemed “harassment” resulting from Terry stops, RAS and the fact that, absent a weapon, police can’t make arrests on these stops unless the dope is in plain view. Maybe the dope boys will wear jabs around their necks, displayed in plain view.

What astounds me is that the media never questions the assertion that black people are unfairly targeted by police. Please media answer these questions. Who is committing the majority of violent crime in the US? Which neighborhoods have the highest murder and crime rates? Who are committing the most murders, who are the victims of shooting the most and by who? The answer to all these questions is the same. It's not racist or unfair, it's simply the truth. It's black people. Knowing this, who should the police be looking at, and what neighborhoods should they be focusing on? The only results of this pandering ultra liberal mindset is more violent crime, more victims, and more dead black people at the hands of other black people.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-met-rahm-emanuel-china-japan-trip-20180712-story.html

Excerpt:
Along for the ride with the mayor: A 44-member delegation made up mostly of Chicago business heavyweights, including donors with ties to nearly $2 million in contributions to Emanuel’s campaign, top City Hall lobbyists and representatives of developers looking to build on some of the city’s highest-profile available real estate.

So the big question is who got the payoffs? The bigger question

Ten people who did travel to Asia with the mayor have ties to $1.85 million in campaign contributions to Emanuel, a Tribune analysis of campaign finance records shows. When the mayor traveled to the Vatican in 2016 for the elevation ceremony of Cardinal Blase Cupich, he took 24 top political backers with ties to $5.5 million in campaign contributions, the Tribune previously reported.

*OK people still being murdered/maimed/beat and no solution for this chaos but yet campaign contributors are being feted on the world stage! As rahm tries everything to upstage President trump while his buddy Barry accomplished what again? Just more negative things against the police and law and order!

This is what happens when the city is run by police haters. Respond to 911 calls, nothing more. That's what Fire Dept does, they don't drive around and look for fires. Give them what they want. Until special interest groups (ACLU American Criminal Lovers Union and Black Lies mater) are removed from dictating policy to Police departments it will only get worse. If you seriously think about it these two groups have publicly expressed an animus toward the Police and to allow their bias and hatred to have input in Police Policy is Absolutely ridiculous.

We, who learned early on, many years ago, that promotions were political, the community did not support you, nor did the brass, arrests did not get you a bigger paycheck, and that today's victim was tomorrows offender, were the original founders of today's zero policing movement. Now you are "fetal"; we were called dogasses then.

If The Police continue to withdraw in self defense
and leave "tha' communerty" to hash out it's differences
among themselves, "tha' communuerty" will no longer have
The Police to blame for it's problems.

McCarthy adamantly refuses to come clean about
Gump-Stat being the most monumental fraud ever
foisted on Policing and the tax-paying public.

There is no linear, sensible or logical way
to overlay the "corporate model" on something
as messy, unpredictable and dangerous as Policing.

Policemen don't manufacture widgets...

McCarthy as mayor will pose a lot of problems

So of all the cases that come up for review with the states attorney refusing charges, this one gets that extra political push to turn a citizen using his first amendment rights, not by chanting kill the police or fuck the police but chastising a latino woman for wearing her Puerto Rico flag shirt. Upgraded to a hate crime at the urging of Chuy Garcia and Louis Gutierrez. Now a police officer, participating in a peaceful demonstration, utilizing his 1st amendment rights, gets spit on and cursed and after the subject gets identified, she gets a misdemeanor battery and 24 hours community service.

I wouldn't do a fucking thing to lift a finger to help any of these oppressed/complainants. And of course, pandering is still on the books as a crime in this state Chuey and Looey.

Let us not dissuade the foolish frisky from seeking their fame in their misfortune.

They will have the somewhat plausible defense of not knowing any better. They'll just have to be convincing in their explanations of why they did not know better. That should not be a difficult task for them to successfully complete.

Possible explanatory proofs:

1. I'm dumber than dirt and I can prove it!!! Here, plant a seed in my ass and watch it sprout!!!!!

2. My brain is as soft as puppy shit, and I can prove it!!! Here, step on my head.....told ya so!!!!

3. I think I know EVERYTHING and that right there proves I'm an idiot!!!!! Right????

4. But, but, but, but.....the boss told me I was SMART!!!! And I believed!!!!! I believed!!!! I believed!!! That's gotta prove I'm a dummy, don't it?

5. I'm the sharpest tack in the box, the brightest bulb in the pack, the apple of my mother's eye and I'm special!!!!!! Aren't I????

6. They told me when I started, that every time I farted, an angel got it's wings!!!! Are you saying they lied???!!!!??!?!!?!?!?

7. I was guaranteed a soft spot, but they didn't tell me it would be between my ears. And that never occurred to me.

8. When I said I wanted action, and lots of it, I was just horny that day.

9. I never got to play with the cool kids, so, I figured, what the hell, how much trouble can I get into, being that I'm protected from all accountability by my natural infallibility. Boy, was I wrong. That's never happened before.


Ya see, multiple means to prove, beyond all doubt, the basis to hold harmless the incompetent.

Anybody catch some of that Congressional Hearing yesterday. The high ranking FBI agent actually thinks that Congress and the American people should believe that he would never allow his personal opinion sway his investigation. So let’s see this same guy investigated Hilary and found little or no wrong doing and called it “bad judgement and non criminal.” Then he initiated the Trump Russian collusion investigation which is still ongoing after a year where they have found no “collusion” but have indicted a few people for other things they found when going through they’re personal accounts with a fine tooth comb. And the same FBI agent was texting his girlfriend a high ranking lawyer within the FBI that “Trump can’t be president and we must stop him.” He clarified that the “we” he was talking about was the American people not his little group at the FBI and his girlfriend. And why shouldn’t we believe him after all he has such stellar character. Forget that he’s been cheating on and lying to his wife for god knowsnhow long about his affair. Not to mention all the thousands of other incriminating text messages he sent on his FBI phone. Like the one that said , “we need to come up with plan b if Hilary doesn’t get elected.” No shit huh. Hopefully plan b is prison.

This guy is a real piece of work. Smug little fucker as well. Guys like him are exactly why the Clintons can do whatever they want and know they can get away with it.

And the guys they indicted are in Russia and will never come back for trial (they hope) because testimony in open court could BLOW UP THE WHOLE CHARADE

If he had intervened, but made no arrest, they would have gone after him for blowing-off a hate crime. As it stands now, they want his scalp and his pension. Even so, the whole thing is ridiculous. It has been blown way, way out of proportion. Little Louie Gutierrez even talked about it at the podium on the floor of the House of Representatives.
