Should Americans be afraid of our own Police ?
“Deadly Law Enforcement”, by Beverley Jane Russell – Op-ed contributor Trumpville Report
The media is ignoring the death of Dylan Noble, a 19-year-old white man, killed on June 25 In Fresno; No Protests, No Riots, Nobody Even Pays Attention. Somehow, the shooting of an unarmed white man by police isn’t drawing any attention from the mainstream media. Unlike the shootings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, which have created yet another firestorm complete with accusations of police racism.
James Whitehead was a white veteran who had recently come back from war. Orange, TX Police Officer Robert Arnold (who has a history of violence) shot and killed unarmed James Whitehead. Arnold is black. Arnold was not in his uniform and did not have a badge. Whitehead got into a verbal altercation about a bad part for his vehicle. James Whitehead did not ever get violent or attack Arnold or anyone else. Whitehead was wrong to get into a verbal altercation but at most he would have gotten a ticket and a fine. Whitehead decided to stop arguing and just leave and that is when Arnold shot the unarmed man dead right on the spot. Arnold was fired for the incident and for his other violent past incidents. Even Arnold’s fellow police officers wanted Arnold to be charged with murder. Arnold was never charged and got away with murder. Arnold has enlisted race baiter Lawyer Cade Bernsen (the white Al Sharpton) to sue the city claiming he was fired because he was black and not because he shot an unarmed white man.
South Carolina Police shoot unarmed white teenager, Another example of Deadly Law Enforcement.
In South Carolina, an unarmed teenager was shot and killed by a cop. Zachary Hammond, 19, was out on a first date when he was fatally shot by a Seneca police officer during a drug bust. His date, who was eating an ice cream cone at the time of the shooting, was later arrested and charged with possession of 10 grams of marijuana. The shooting is under investigation. But the police claim Hammond was driving his car toward the police officer who was attempting to make the stop, an act that resulted in the officer firing two shots, striking Hammond in the shoulder and torso. This is an example of Deadly Law Enforcement.
The Hammond family wonders why so little national attention has been focused on their son’s death. “It’s sad, but I think the reason is, unfortunately, the media and our government officials have treated the death of an unarmed white teenager differently than they would have if this were a death of an unarmed black teen,” said Eric Bland, the family’s attorney. “The hypocrisy that has been shown toward this is really disconcerting. The issue should never be what is the color of the victim. The issue should be: Why was an unarmed teen gunned down in a situation where deadly force was not even justified?”
Dothan Alabama Police shoots unarmed White Man
Police in the small Alabama town of Dothan shot and killed an unarmed white man Tuesday who resisted arrest after refusing to show ID when turning in a stray animal to an animal shelter. Dothan First reported Lawrence became ‘combative’ when asked to produce identification at the animal shelter. Police reportedly first tazed Lawrence to no effect, he was then shot in the abdomen. There is no mention of Lawrence being armed. Lawrence was taken to the hospital where he died Tuesday night. Another example of Deadly Law Enforcement.
The Dothan Eagle reported the Alabama State Bureau of Investigations is reviewing the shooting death. Dothan First reported Lawrence had a troubled history, having served ninety days in jail this year for making “Harassing Communications.”
So where’s the RIOTS ?
This is the problem ! When a tragedy like this happens , other races see it for what it is (a tragedy) ! Regardless of The Reason for said tragedy , its usually handled through the legal system . The Pain is no less for one tragedy than the other ! People die , families are broken. Lives are destroyed ! Whether someone goes to jail and/or gets sued , or loses their job , its handled through the Legal System ! Not through riots and protests ! But it seems with African American People its Published Everywhere ! It starts as Protests, but before long tensions flare and the Protests become RIOTS ! And Ultimately arrests, looting, injuries, and often more Death !
BATON ROUGE, La. — Protesters angry over the fatal shooting of a black man by two white Baton Rouge police officers rallied Saturday at the convenience store where he was shot, in front of the city’s police department and at the state Capitol for another day of demonstrations.The gatherings came after overnight demonstrations produced tense moments resulting in 30 arrests. The demonstration Saturday outside the Baton Rouge Police Department was at times tense again, as protesters faced off against police dressed in RIOT gear.
Baltimore, Md. — Freddie Gray, a black man who resisted arrest, was placed in a police van, slipped into a coma shortly after arriving at the station and died a week later. Days of riots followed and six officers were indicted in connection with Gray’s death. During the riots, Baltimore’s mayor told the police, as she put it, to give “those who wished to destroy space to do that.” Cops got the message. As in New York, they backed off, doing little more than responding to radio calls — no more proactive policing. As a result, Baltimore is experiencing crime levels unseen in decades. Murders have increased 48 percent in the first six months of 2015 — with most of the homicides occurring after Freddie Gray’s April 19 death.
Ferguson, Mo. — Police said Michael Brown physically assaulted the officer from the Ferguson police, who then fired multiple shots at Brown after he left the car on Saturday. The officer, who was not identified, is a six-year veteran and has been put on administrative leave, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar told a news conference. RIOTING and LOOTING erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, late on Sunday as protests over the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer turned violent, law enforcement officials and media reports said.
St. Louis, Mo. — Crowds broke the windows of cars and stores following a day of demonstrations over the death of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old shot dead on Saturday by a Ferguson police officer. “We are currently experiencing a RIOT,” a Ferguson police dispatcher said. About 150 officers in riot gear from throughout St. Louis County, along with canine units, were sent to the area, a dispatcher for the St. Louis County Police Department said.
There was no immediate word on injuries. But later .The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported several businesses were LOOTED, demonstrators blocked traffic and a CIVILIAN was SEVERELY BEATEN. Sunday’s protests turned violent after dark, according to news station KMOV-TV, with RIoting smashing the window of a store and damaging cars. The crowd broke the windows of a news truck, the station said.
A teenage girl said that a QuikTrip convenience store was being LOOTED. Asked what LOOTERS were taking, she said, “Everything ,THEY DESTROYED EVERYTHING.”
Planned Protest result in RIOTING and LOOTING after LAPD officer shoots, kills man during struggle! A Sunday afternoon protest is planned at LAPD headquarters after 25-year-old Ezell Ford was killed by a police officer in Florence earlier this week.
The shooting occurred about 8:20 p.m. Monday after an officer conducted “an investigative stop” in the 200 block of West 65th Street, according to an LAPD news release. During the stop, a “struggle ensued” and the officer shot the person, whom police did not identify.
LAPD officers on the scene in South Los Angeles after Ezell Ford was fatally shot by police. The shooting comes as national attention continues to focus on the shooting death of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old who was shot multiple times Saturday during a confrontation with Ferguson police in Missouri.
Days of protests continued Tuesday night, and RIOTING and LOOTING was reported. Soon after Ezell Ford’s shooting death, some took to Twitter using the hashtag #EzellFord to frame his death in the context of what was happening in Ferguson. However, police and family have not said whether Ezell Ford was armed.
More whites are victims of police shootings
“In 2012, 123 African-Americans were shot dead by police. Bill O’Reilly said on his program. “Same year, 326 whites were killed by police bullets. Those are the latest stats available.”
A search in 2012 for deaths caused by “legal intervention” as a result of the use of a firearm — that is, a police shooting — yields just the numbers O’Reilly cited . In the 15-19 age range, the database shows 20 white people killed in 2012 and 14 blacks.
Police killings in America have sparked a national movement for police reform, especially since the death of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
Based on The Guardian’s statistics 2014 , police killed more white people than any other race this year. A total 385 white people have been killed by police this year, and 66 of them were unarmed at the time of their death.
The turmoil in Ferguson has spurred many assertions that blacks are unfairly victimized by police. Conservative talk show host Michael Medved aimed to turn that argument on its head.
“When it comes to keeping black youths from violent death, police aren’t the problem – in fact, they’re a crucial part of any solution,” Medved said. As for the charge that police target blacks, Medved said the opposite is true. “More whites than blacks are victims of deadly police shootings,” he said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention keeps data on fatal injuries from 1999 to 2011 and one category is homicides by legal intervention. The term “legal intervention” covers any situation when a person dies at the hands of anyone authorized to use deadly force in the line of duty. Over the span of more than a decade, 2,151 whites died by being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks. In that respect, Medved is correct.
Here are some statistics that are being roundly ignored by a media eager to push the lies that ooze out of Al Sharpton’s mouth on a daily basis: The real statistics show that cops kill whites at almost double the rate that they kill blacks.
Talk show host and columnist Larry Elder did some actual research (something the old media establishment avoids) and found that the claim that blacks are killed by cops more often than whites are killed is simply untrue. In fact, he found that the death by cop for blacks is down 75 percent since 1999.
So, not only is the “Hands Up” saying based on a lie, the entire, race baiting movement against the police is based on a lie. Police shootings, nationwide, are down dramatically from what they were 20 or 30 years ago.
Obama Defends Black Lives Matter Movement While Protesters Scream Threats Against Police .I would say the president’s timing was a little off. Defending the Black Lives Matter movement, President Barack Obama said Thursday the protests are giving voice to a problem happening only in African-American communities, adding, “We, as a society, particularly given our history, have to take this seriously.”
Obama said the movement, which sprung up after the deaths of unarmed black men in Florida, Missouri and elsewhere, quickly came to be viewed as being opposed to police and suggesting that other people’s lives don’t matter. Opponents have countered that “all lives matter.” At the conclusion of a White House forum on criminal justice, Obama said he wanted to make a final point about the nexus of race and the criminal justice system before launching into his defense of the movement.
“I think everybody understands all lives matter,” Obama said. “I think the reason that the organizers used the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ was not because they were suggesting nobody else’s lives matter. Rather, what they were suggesting was there is a specific problem that’s happening in the African-American community that’s not happening in other communities. “And that is a legitimate issue that we’ve got to address.”
Meanwhile, in St. Louis, police escorted a gaggle of BLM protesters and some of the demonstrators tried to justify President Obama’s faith in them by screaming “Pigs in a blanket. Fry ’em like bacon” at their protectors.
Black Americans have overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama in two presidential elections, but they have fallen further behind during his term in office, losing ground in measures of income, employment, and education. The national unemployment rate has dropped to 7 percent, but the jobless rate for blacks has hardly moved since Obama took office, declining from 12.7 percent in 2009 to 12.5 percent, according to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics report. And while the recession impacted all race and age groups’ earnings, blacks fared the worst.
The poverty rate for blacks sharply increased, rising from 12 percent in 2008 to 16.1 percent . Median income declined by 3.6 percent for white households to $58,000, but fell 10.9 percent to $33,500 for black households, Census Bureau figures show. “The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category,” Tavis Smiley, a black radio talk-show host, said on Fox News in October. “On that regard, the president ought to be held responsible.”
Destruction of America
The Division is Clear ! The reason , Obama is pushing his own agenda and sadly a lot of African American People can’t see past the skin color ! Obama is a race baiter and is tearing our country apart piece by piece ! It appears he doesn’t truly care about the American People . He cares about his and himself . Racism was asleep or at the the very least on turtle speed when Obama was elected as President , if not he simply could have not gotten elected ! But Now with Obama at the lead , our country and people have become strangers and enemies ! He set a precedent that have divided US ! He’s not Pro-Black ! Or Anti -White for that matter ! He’s Anti-America ! He’s Pro -Muslim ! He’s the problem ! And Hillary Clinton is his protégé ! She will finish what he as set in motion ! She will complete the task ! The complete and utter Destruction of America !
