The Biggest Barrier to Minority and Women Police Chiefs? Riots for Equality

As the country struggles with unequal application of justice and trying to find ways to make sure the law applies to call equally, one of the most often cited needs is for more minority police chiefs and leaders in police departments around the country that can better understand the issues involved and better relate to minority communities.

As it turns out, one of the biggest barriers to minority police leadership is the current riots that supposedly are demanding ‘equality’ and racial justice. Continue reading “The Biggest Barrier to Minority and Women Police Chiefs? Riots for Equality”

Ruth Bader Ginsberg, RIP

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer.

Ginsberg was a pioneer in the field of juris prudence, was the second woman appointed to the US Supreme Court and had a distinguished career that helped break several barriers along the way.

But possibly more important, she was an honorable person and public servant. Her close personal friendship with her ideological opposite on the Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia, serves as an example to us all that you can be friends with and care deeply about people with whom you often disagree strongly. More then ever, her quiet personal example in that regard may be her biggest contribution to her country.

 

Arrogance Of The Media

As if it wasn’t already apparent, the elites in the media continue to provide examples of their extreme arrogance and their belief that their profession entitles them to do anything they want.

The most recent example comes from Los Angeles, where days ago video shows two police officers sitting in their car outside a train station when a person walked up to the car and shot both officers.

One of the officers was able to call for help and both were rushed to St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, where a mob had gathered and was blocking the entrance while chanting “Let them die. Let them die.”

Police arrested one protester who refused to move from the entrance after ordered to do so.

It’s at this point that NPR station KPCC reporter Josie Huang decided she would insert herself to get a story (NPR—a taxpayer funded station, for reference). Continue reading “Arrogance Of The Media”

A New Low In US ‘Protests’

Last night, two police officers were ambushed in Los Angeles. Video shows two police officers sitting in their car outside a train station in Compton when someone walked up and shot them in the head, then ran off.

The officers miraculously were able to call for help and an ambulance rushed to the scene.

Somehow, some BLM-aligned protesters were at the hospital and knew the ambulance was carrying police officers. As the ambulance approached, ‘protesters’ blocked the entrance to the emergency room and began chanting “Let them die. Let them die.” Continue reading “A New Low In US ‘Protests’”

This Genetics Stuff Is So Confusing

You Can Choose Your Gender?

Comedian and talk show host Trevor Noah is offended by gender reveal parties. Why? Because, he says, the child hasn’t picked their gender yet.

While supposedly doing a routine about recent news that a wildfire in CA was potentially started at a gender reveal party, Noah went off on a bit of a tangent and said such parties are ‘outdated’ and laid this bit of ‘Woke’ knowledge on the crowd, saying children don’t “know” their gender until they are old enough to choose one themselves.

Joking that if you are going to have a ‘reveal party’ then maybe drop pink or blue colored water on the fire, Noah then got deeply serious. “And aside from all the damage it can cause, celebrating a baby’s genitalia is starting to feel very outdated. Like, given everything we’re learning about gender, gender reveal parties should only happen when the child is old enough to know their actual gender,” he said.

You can’t make this stuff up.

And You Can Choose Your Race?

A doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison issued a public apology this week after accusations emerged online that ‘they’ were presenting as a person of color despite being mostly of Italian ancestry.

CV Vitolo-Haddad — who uses they/them pronouns to describe….um, themself (which, crazy me, I always thought was plural—are ‘they’ schizophrenic)  — wrote in a post this week  that ‘they’ resigned from a teaching position (yes, with public tax dollars) and stepped down as co-president of UW-Madison’s chapter of the Teaching Assistants’ Association graduate workers’ union. Vitolo-Haddad was also at one point director of the school’s speech and debate team.

This comes the same week as Jessica Krug a professor at George Washington Univ., resigned after admitting that for years she had pretended to be black though she is not. “I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie,” she said in a blog post. Her admission came after several colleagues had begun to question her on things they found inconsistent with her story.

Education At Home-Principal Calls Police

In Colorado, police were called on a young man- who was learning from home-because a teacher saw a toy gun on the desk during the Zoom call.

Police never called the parents and, in fact, refused to show the parents the video. The mother was only able to see the video of the toy gun on the body camera of the police officer who came to the house.

For educators who often complain about not getting support of parents in learning, this seems like an odd way to get support. Not only was it a toy gun, but the teacher and principal totally took the parents out of the equation. Imagine what the parent-teacher conference will be like later in the year. I can tell you what it would be like if I were that parent.

An as much as we talk about concern about equality of opportunity in education, here is a minority young man who now has a permanent record of bringing a gun-like toy to school (which in this case, was his home).

You Want Less Police? You Are Getting Your Wish

Amid the growing protests and riots across the country, some politicians have called to defund the police and reduce the size of police forces. The Black Lives Matter organization (or at least two of their national leaders) has called for the abolishment of the police (and prisons). Those people may be getting their wish. Continue reading “You Want Less Police? You Are Getting Your Wish”

Shocking Revelation: Portland’s Refusal To Prosecute Crime Results In More Crime

Portland has endured nights of riots and violence lasting for months straight. Now, law enforcement is refusing to send help. Why would that be?

UPDATE: Portland Mayor Wheeler has decided that he is moving after rioters came to his home and rioted over the weekend, smashing windows and throwing Molotov cocktails into the stores on the first floor of his condo complex.  Amazing how the elitist politicians react when it’s THEIR homes that are threatened.

Courageous African-American Lawmaker Speaks Out

Tennessee State Representative John Deberry, a Democrat from Memphis, compared the current civil rights struggles to the struggles of the 1960’s. In doing so, he referenced his parent’s participation in the battles for equality during his younger years.

Below is an article talking about his speech before the TN Legislature. His message is important and worth hearing

Senator Who Proposed Law To Ban ‘No Knock’ Police Raids Threatened By ‘Protesters’

Sen. Rand Paul walked outside last night, leaving work to go to his home in Washington DC. He was mobbed by ‘protesters’, demanding that he join them in ‘saying her name’ (referring to Breona Taylor, a woman killed in a ‘no knock’ police raid). Paul, by his own account feared for his personal safety and only escaped by the quick intervention of DC police. ‘Protesters’, who now routinely threaten bystanders, didn’t seem to care that Sen. Paul has introduced legislation to outlaw ‘no knock’ police raids in response that that very incident.

Because, you see, the ‘protests’ aren’t about justice and equality anymore. They are about mindless, blind rage, intimidation and destruction
