(5) Major Issues Many Police Departments Struggle With

(5) Major Issues Many Police Departments Struggle With

 

These are simply my opinions which has been garnered over the past 60 years of life here in the U.S. with three decades of driving our Nation’s roadways in a commercial vehicle. These are only my opinions, yours may well vary, you may not agree with me at all and that is quite okay with me. You may agree with me but you may well put these issues in a different order. The last one of the five I wrote down is Racism and that is because “too me” it belongs last of the five. Before you have the Proverbial Cow or you pee in your Cheerios let me explain my reason. Out on the road I spoke with many Law Enforcement Officers from 48 States and 6 of Canada’s Provinces. I am a White Male and I have never once got treated badly by a Black Police Officer or by an Oriental Officer, yet, I have been treated very badly by Navajo Police and by Hispanic Officers while in the South-West. In some of these cases it was obvious they disliked my “Whiteness” but all you can do is shut up, accept to say yes Sir, you know, kill an asshole with kindness. Now for an anti Race Kicker, I have been treated the worst by White Cops. Was it about Race, no! But, and a HUGE BUT, I have seen several times where White Police Officers were blatantly racists toward non-Whites. Now, I’m just going to give you the five thoughts to see what you think.

1.) Morality: Truthfulness-Honesty

2.) Maturity: the lack thereof, grow up, act like adults

3.) Punk-ism: this speaks for itself and it is a HUGE problem Nation-wide

4.) Ego-ism

5.) Racism

 

 

I’m 63 And White: I Honestly Knew Nothing Of Juneteenth

I’m 63 And White: I Honestly Knew Nothing Of Juneteenth 

 

I have to admit that I am a bit embarrassed that until a couple of days ago I had never even heard of Juneteenth. What I am embarrassed about is the fact that as a person who has gone through the public school system getting out of school in 1973, why wasn’t this information in our History Books? From May of 2005 through May of 2009 I was blessed with the opportunity to get to go to college and during that time I took several History Classes, again, until a couple of days ago, I knew nothing of it. Why would this information not be included in these education courses? I find that I actually agree that June 19th should become a National Holiday. As a person who has always felt and believed that all racism is actually Evil, as racism is hatred of someone over something that no person can do anything about, their Nationality, their skin color. Hating our fellow Brothers and Sisters over something that no one has any say so in, puts one squarely in the camp of Evil and pure stupidity.

Racism Does Not Exist Within Christianity

Racism Does Not Exist Within Christianity 

 

Did you choke on that one yet? But, what I have said is the truth! Please give me a moment to explain. I come at this statement from a fundamental/basic view point. You see, what I am going to say will really torque a tooth with some folks but so be it, as long as what I speak is the truth, and it is. Yes folks, I do know that there are a lot of people, probably in the millions world-wide who say that they are a Christian, which means ‘a follower of Christ’, yet they are not. All people are brothers and sisters of only one race, if you or I do not believe this, then we are not followers of Christ. You can not hate your brother without a cause and be a follower of Christ! Folks, ‘a cause’is not something that a person can do nothing about, like the color of skin we happen to be born with. If I as a White guy hates a person solely because they aren’t White or because they are from a different Nation then where is my Christian faith? Then friends I have a simple message for you, I above all would be sinning directly against The Father and against His Son and there is NOTHING Christian about Racism! When a person chooses to be a racist they have already separated themselves from God The Father and God The Son. If you are a Racist person and you consider yourself to be a Christian, please, consider your ways. If we are hate filled we have already committed Spiritual Suicide!

Are These Riots Just Racists Hooliganism?

Are The Riots Just Racists Hooliganism?

 

Just like many of you I have seen a video on the death of a young man named George Floyd at the hands/knee of a Police Officer in Minneapolis Minnesota and as a citizen I am not pleased with what I have watched. My youngest Son is the same age as Mr. Floyd was and yes even though I am a white guy I have worked with my Son on how to act if a Police Office approaches him. Any time that anyone is in the presence of any Police Officer that Officer can if they so chose too can ruin your day, your life, or even end your life. With this said, always be decent and always be friendly. Also, DO NOT say anything hate full or just plain stupid and ALWAYS cooperate, politely. This is just the intelligent thing to do when you are with someone who can totally alter or end your whole life. Some Police Officers all around the world are nothing but crooked thieves and murderers, in some cases the Police ARE the main problem in a town or region. Thus said, why would you want to take a chance with an Officer when they walk up too you? Why say too yourself “self” I think I am going to act like an asshole just to see what kind of a reaction I can get from this Cop? I do honestly believe that most police around the Nation are at least decent folks but just like in every job there are people who are total pricks wearing uniforms. When you bring race into the equation, in some cases there are racists Cops just like in any profession and their ignorance and hatred shines brightly when shown too us on a video. Police Departments all around the Globe must police themselves and start purging their bad apples. Until Police Departments Nation wide do this there will never be fluid relations with the communities in which they choose to go to work within each day.

 

I have a question for you, in your opinion what has rioting and mass vandalism of stores, cars and homes got to do with this Cop killing this Man? Should I get a group of out of town/state people to gather (many being arrested are said to be from out of state) and raid our local Police Station because of this act in Minnesota? Okay, if you or I want to we should have the right to PEACEFULLY march, yell and wave signs in the air. But, what you and I DO NOT have is any right to attack anyone or any ones property. Tell me please, what has the death of Mr Floyd got to do with me and my buddies breaking into Target, Best-Buy a Jewelry Shop or a Pawn-Shop? Even if the death of Mr. Floyd had everything to do with racism what does me breaking into and trashing a Target Store have to do with race? My belief is nothing, it has nothing to do with it at all. What it really looks like is there are a bunch of young black folks who have come into these cities just for the purpose of raising hell and being thieves and vandals. When we protest with violence against non-primary targets we show the whole World that we have no morals or credibility.

 

 

(Another Savage Thought) Skin Color Cannot Matter Or Our Soul Is Lost

Skin Color Cannot Matter Or Our Soul Is Lost

 

Folks when I write these notes to you I am just telling you my honest thoughts and beliefs. So here is what I believe about what is going on in a south Georgia murder of a 25 year old black man who was jogging via information I have gleamed from news outlets and a short piece of A film I saw about 5 seconds of a few days ago. I hear that there is another video that has also now surfaced, I have not seen the new one.

 

As most folks here in the States know by now there was a 25 year old black man jogging in his neighborhood when he ended up on the wrong end of two point blank shotgun shells. The two white men now arrested are a father son duo. The dad is a retired Police Officer so this event has even more stench to it than what was already there on this case. It does appear that race was a major factor if not the only factor in this young mans death. To me, from what I am hearing on the News programs it seems that there needs to be a much further investigation into the Police and the Prosecutors who handled this case. In case you don’t know it already, this event happened in late February, more than two months ago but the films are just now coming out. If this event is what it seems like it is, a young man being hunted down and murdered, this is the worse case I have seen of this since that Chicago Cop chased down that 17 year old young man who only had a small knife yet he was shot about 17 times laying dead in the street.

 

Folks, I am going to bring these events over into a Religion spectrum but I will stay away from politics today. I know for a fact that there are some people (from many differing races) who think that their race, their skin color is the color of people whom have Souls and that no one else does. I learned that one at about the age of 22 or 23, dang near broke a wing or three falling out of my tree. There are some people who take the Biblical Scriptures out of context when the Bible is talking about keeping a “pure blood” pure, God was talking to the Hebrew People, telling them not to mix with the Nations around them, they did and look at the mess the Middle-East is today. Black people, White people, Asians, Hispanics, Indian’s and everyone else, folks, we are all Gentiles. We are the ones that Christ’s Resurrection redeemed, all of us. If we hate our neighbor without a cause, we are lost to the Fires of Hell. If a person being hated is because of something they cannot do any thing about, like what skin color they have or for being born in the wrong state or for being to short or to tall then the hater is most definitely the sinner of the two. Folks, racism is Spiritual suicide!

 

 

(Poem/Faith) Race: It Just Can-not Matter

Race: It Just Can-not Matter

 

I have seen so much hate and rage

Blood on the fists, red in the peoples eyes

I’ve seen that flash from several lives

Instant hate at the sight of your skin

Seen fear of some others at the same

 

The Good Lord Forbade this hatred to be among us

Blood of the innocent killed we will have to claim

Rejoice in the freedom of kindness, not unto pain

Why do we refuse to stamp out yet so quick to accuse

If the Paint Job matters to us, God help us when we die

 

Jersey City gunman was a Black Hebrew Israelite

Jersey City gunman was a Black Hebrew Israelite, so don’t expect to hear much more about the shooting

It was only January when certain journalists went way out on a limb to give friendly news coverage to the racist and anti-Semitic Black Hebrew Israelite cult. This very odd editorial decision seemed to come in the service of better sticking it to the high school students from Covington Catholic — boys whom the Black Hebrew Israelites had taunted on the national mall, inciting what became a famous incident.

So, now that one of the black nationalist cult’s former members stands accused of a deadly shoot-out with police, possibly in an act of anti-Semitic terrorism targeting a Kosher grocery market in Jersey City, we are probably not going to hear much talk about the Black Hebrew Israelites in the broader context of radicalization and gun violence. That would be a personal and professional embarrassment for a lot of reporters and editors, some of whom are currently in the middle of defending against lawsuits by the Covington teens.

The New York Times, for example, published an entire profile in January describing the Black Hebrew Israelites and their tactics in friendly, playful terms, including “gamely engage,” “blunt and sometimes offensive,” and “attention-grabbing,” but all for the purpose of “drawing listeners near.” The profile is even sure to mention that a popular rapper once mentioned the group by name in a song.

A report published separately by the Washington Post likewise mentions the rapper incident. It does not, however, take any time to lay out the cult’s well-known history of racism and anti-Semitism. All that the report says is that the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League have labeled the Black Hebrew Israelites as a “hate group” for its “inflammatory messages about white, LGBT and Jewish people.” That’s it. The Jan. 22 Washington Post story said also of the Covington episode that the Black Hebrew Israelites presence at the Lincoln Memorial “was, for the group, quite mundane,” adding further that “Israelite street preaching in parts of D.C., Philadelphia and New York is commonplace, a familiar if odd accent to city life.”

It is still possible Tuesday’s shooting spree inspires a broader conversation about gun violence and the dangers posed by radical hate groups like the Black Hebrew Israelites. But don’t hold your breath.

Meanwhile, the Covington teenagers, falsely portrayed as hateful bigots in the pages of the New York Times, the Washington Post, and elsewhere, are not known to have shot anyone — at least not in the last 11 months.

Trump Comes to Console. El Paso Says No Thanks

Trump Comes to Console. El Paso Says No Thanks.

EL PASO — Earlier this year in his State of the Union address, President Trump described to the nation how the Texas border city of El Paso once had “extremely high rates of violent crime” and was considered “one of our nation’s most dangerous cities.” Then he turned it into the living argument for his border wall.

“With a powerful barrier in place,” he went on, “El Paso is one of the safest cities in our country. Simply put, walls work and walls save lives.”

In this West Texas border city, founded 360 years ago as an outpost of the Spanish empire, those words festered. So did words Mr. Trump repeated at a rally he held on the city’s outskirts a few weeks later. “Murders, murders, murders,” he said, in reference to immigrants, as the crowd chanted, “Build the wall!”

For many in El Paso, the potentially devastating consequences of the anger over immigration and race became apparent this weekend, when 22 people were killed at a Walmart and the white suspect warned of a “Hispanic invasion,” plunging the city into mourning. So Mr. Trump returned — this time to say he wanted to help the city grieve.

But rarely in recent memory has a relationship between a president and a city been so fraught. As Mr. Trump arrived here on Wednesday to try to meet the victims, protesters gathered at a memorial outside the scene of the carnage, many angry at the president’s visit.

The El Paso Times published a letter to Mr. Trump defending the city — which lies just across the border from the Mexican city of Ciudad Juárez — and its deep sense of bi-cultural identity. “Our city and Juárez were always linked. Today, we are intertwined more than ever. The evil that visited us targeted people from El Paso and Juárez alike,” it said. “Our people are scared.”

[One Walmart worker said he hustled shoppers into empty steel shipping containers behind the store to help them survive the attack.]

And so this predominantly Hispanic city in a state whose leadership is tightly aligned with the administration’s anti-immigration agenda tried this week to chart its own course through America’s troubled political waters.

El Paso officials — pointing out that the Trump campaign still owes the city more than half a million dollars for the security costs of a rally in February — veered between rejecting the president’s politics and welcoming his attempt to recognize the city’s grief.

“This is the office of the mayor of El Paso in an official capacity welcoming the office of the president of the United States, which I consider is my formal duty,” said Dee Margo, the mayor.

Others in the city had no patience for such diplomacy.

“Absolutely everything that Trump stands for was concentrated and fired at the citizens of El Paso that day at Walmart,” said Christopher Bailey, 43, a project coordinator for an El Paso health clinic. “Shame should be hung around the neck for every supporter that continues to justify his language and his presidency.”

At the memorial outside the Walmart that was the scene of Saturday’s attack and at a poster-making event the night before the protest, many said the president should not have come.

“It’s his words that created the climate that led that hateful man to come to my community,” said Lyda Ness-Garcia, a lawyer and an organizer for the Women’s March of El Paso who was at the poster event.

[The victims of the El Paso attack included a couple who had three young children.]

She said that when Mr. Trump painted El Paso as a dangerous city that needed stronger barriers between it and Mexico he was using the city as nothing more than a prop. El Paso was one of the safest American cities of its size long before barriers went up at the border, and violent crime is relatively low.

“It’s factually false. It’s just untrue. It’s nothing but some mythed-up white rage,” she said. “He needs to apologize and take his words back.”

In an extraordinary series of tweets on the night before the president’s arrival, Representative Veronica Escobar, a Democrat representing El Paso in Congress, underscored the way in which the city was taking on a leading role — even in a conservative state like Texas — in opposing Mr. Trump. Only about 26 percent of the voters in El Paso County voted for Mr. Trump in 2016.

Rep. Veronica Escobar

@RepEscobar

The White House invited me to join @realDonaldTrump during his visit to El Paso. My response was clear. I requested a phone call with him today in order to share what I have now heard from many constituents, including some who are victims of Saturday’s attack.

Ms. Escobar revealed that the White House had invited her to join Mr. Trump during Wednesday’s visit, but she said she had requested a phone call with the president in an effort to explain that the language he uses to describe Latinos, sometimes equating them with violent criminals, is dehumanizing.

“I have publicly said he has a responsibility to acknowledge the power of his words, apologize for them, and take them back because they are still hanging over us,” Ms. Escobar wrote.

The president, she said, was “too busy” to talk, and she declined to join him in his visit. “I refuse to be an accessory to his visit.”

El Paso treasures its place as part of a community that straddles two countries. Its vibrancy, many said, comes from its bond with Mexico, with a history that is older than that of the United States.

“He doesn’t really know who we are,” said Judy Lugo, president of the Texas State Employees Union, which represents some 10,000 state workers, of Mr. Trump’s visit. “He doesn’t know our culture, the long history we have. He doesn’t understand.”

“We are a community of love, a community of family,” Ms. Lugo said. “We are not what he says we are. We are not rapists. We are not dirty. We are not criminals.”

Across the city, some residents worried that Mr. Trump’s visit might do more harm than good.

“He’s just putting salt on the wound,” Ninamarie Ochoa, 29, a teacher, said of Mr. Trump’s visit. Referring to white nationalists who express views like those of the suspect in the attack and the recent detention in tent camps of thousands of migrants arriving in El Paso, she said, “I think that the way he has empowered those voices, to give them license to act on it, you see this in the way that people talk about ICE and Border Patrol and their complacency with the concentration camps.”

Wednesday’s visit was intended as an opportunity for Mr. Trump to console family members and survivors and help commemorate those who died in Saturday’s attack. But few seemed ready to bridge a gap between the city and the president that had grown wide even before the shooting.

El Paso’s culture has been influenced both by its proximity to Mexico and its distance from so much of the rest of the state, said Richard Pineda, a political communications professor at the University of Texas, El Paso. In a previous era, before jet travel, a trip to El Paso from many cities could be 10 hours or more. It still takes 11 hours to drive there from Houston. It is in a different time zone than the rest of Texas.

The city, he said, was not as tolerant as some might portray it. Yet a certain influence comes from living so close to another country, with the vibrancy, poverty and sometimes violence of Ciudad Juárez visible on the other side of the border fence. “You literally get to see a totally different world,” he said.

As Mr. Trump has used El Paso as a stage for promoting his immigration policies, some of the city’s politicians have used it as an example of a counternarrative. The city’s former representative in Congress, Beto O’Rourke, now running as a Democrat for president, often talks about El Paso’s experience as a bicultural city to criticize the administration’s handling of the surge in migrant arrivals at the southern border. Ms. Escobar has made frequent appearances on television condemning the treatment of migrants in crowded detention centers, many of them in El Paso and nearby.

Yet some of Mr. Trump’s messages have found support in El Paso — though few were eager to talk about it much in the mood of grieving and anger that prevailed on Wednesday.

Jordan Flores, 20, who buses tables at Peter Piper Pizza, showed up outside the Walmart wearing a MAGA hat. He said he remained a supporter of the president, though he felt uneasy about the killings.

“For people to put me into the rhetoric that I am supposed to be this racist or homophobic person, it’s just not true,” Mr. Flores said. “My heart goes out to every single person that was affected by this massacre.”

Jason Carr, 53, who described himself as a libertarian, said it was clear even to him that it would have been better for the president not to have come to El Paso.

“It’s pretty clear he wasn’t wanted,” he said. “You can see the hurt in people’s eyes,” he said of the attack, still so fresh after only a few days. “It’s just so wrong. There’s just so many layers of how wrong it was.”

Reform leader accuses president of emboldening mass shooters by ‘demonizing asylum seekers and immigrants’

WASHINGTON — Liberal American Jewish leaders, fuming at another mass shooting allegedly carried out by a white supremacist, took US President Donald Trump to task on Sunday, saying he had fueled xenophobia and division in the country for three years, while failing to press for stricter gun laws.

Their condemnations came after a 21-year-old gunman, armed with a powerful rifle, walked into a crowded Walmart on Saturday in El Paso, Texas — a majority Hispanic city on the border with Mexico — and opened fire. Authorities identified the assailant as Patrick Crusius from Dallas, who stalked shoppers in the aisles of the retail giant as he riddled them with bullets, leaving at least 20 people dead and another 26 wounded.

Crusius is suspected of being the author of a manifesto posted online before the attack, in which he said was responding to “the Hispanic invasion of Texas.”

Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, said in a statement that the shooter was reciting language frequently used by Trump — a sign that his influence was evident in the motivation for the attack.

“The El Paso killer was a white supremacist who wrote a ‘send them back’ manifesto, echoing the words of President Trump,” Soifer said. “Trump is responsible for fueling a fire of xenophobia and hatred in our country, and Republicans are responsible for allowing it to occur.”

Over the past year, two other mass shootings by white supremacists were preceded by similar manifestos — one written by John Earnest before the Poway synagogue shooting in April, and one authored by Brenton Tarrant before he opened fire on two mosques in New Zealand in March, killing 50 people.

Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, noted that the release of a manifesto before Saturday’s attack fit the same pattern.

“We have documented a rise in extremist activity, both online and in our communities,” Greenblatt said in a statement. “As with too many of these incidents, our experts have again been reviewing the apparent manifesto of an alleged shooter, as well as other elements of his online footprint, to evaluate potential extremist ties.”

Greenblatt went on to say that, if police confirm the manifesto’s authenticity, it will make the El Paso attack one of the deadliest acts of domestic terrorism in modern American history.

“If the suspect is the author of the manifesto, this latest act of domestic terrorism will be, according to the ADL’s Center on Extremism’s records, the third deadliest act of violence by a domestic extremist in over 50 years, and the second deadliest act of violence by a right-wing extremist in the same span, second only to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing,” he added.

Trump has been frequently criticized for his tacit welcoming of support from white nationalists. During the 2016 campaign, he refused to immediately reject the support of David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

As president, he likewise refused to immediately condemn neo-Nazis and Klan members who marched in Charlottesville in August 2017, saying that “very fine people” were marching alongside them.

Most recently, he told four freshmen congresswomen of color to “go back” to where they came from. All four are American citizens, and three of them were born in the United States.

He has also implemented immigration policies that have been broadly condemned as inhumane — including the family separation policy of splitting up parents from their children at the border — to deter immigrants and asylum seekers from entering the country.

After the El Paso attack, Rick Jacobs, who heads the Union for Reform Judaism, lamented the inaction of politicians to effectuate stronger gun-safety measures.

“It is not enough for elected officials to muster their ‘thoughts and prayers,’” he said in a statement Saturday. “Like millions of Americans I’m sick of the pathetic excuses offered by too many lawmakers for not passing strong and effective common sense gun laws.”

He then directed his indignation toward Trump. “And if we are to call on the leaders of our nation to address this epidemic of hate, a goal that, hopefully, almost all Americans cherish, we must ask: When will this president stop demonizing asylum seekers and immigrants, which serves to embolden those like today’s shooter?”
