That sound you hear is Thomas Jefferson rolling over in his grave.
According to a study, police officers are three times more likely to shoot a white unarmed suspect than a black unarmed suspect. Evidently there is institutional racism among police officers…against white people. #WhitePrivilege From WaPo: The conventional thinking about police-involved shootings, and some scientific research, has been that black suspects are more likely to be shot than white suspects because of an …
We love accountable law enforcement, police officers who follow the Constitution and use their position to protect the life and liberty of others. However, when accountability is missing from people in positions of power, that poses a big problem. One of the simplest ways to hold police officers accountable is to put what they do on videotape, but a court in Philadelphia just ruled that filming the police is, under most circumstances, a crime that could land you in jail. The ruling is virulently unconstitutional.
An Austin police officer took it upon himself to play the role of Political Correctness Cop, citing a preacher with disorderly conduct for “offending somebody.” As he issued the citation, the cop told the preacher that it is “illegal to offend people” and that “it’s our job to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
Not only does private gun ownership save lives, private gun ownership saves cops’ lives! A Pennsylvania cop is thanking a private gun owner who came to his rescue after he was attacked by 40 teens in the Upper Darby suburb of Philadelphia.
Sadly, this appears to be yet another in a long list of cases where over-policing of petty crimes has run completely amok and with disastrous consequences. In the initial police reports of this case, the officers claimed they shot an killed Agular out of self defense after he shot one of them first. Video, however, tells a much different story: Officer Ruiz accidentally shoots his own partner, Officer Murad, and then both officers proceed to shoot Noel Agular at point blank range in the back. Both cops then neglect to give emergency medical care to Agular, instead keeping pinned to the ground until he is dead.
We told you about the Greensboro NC police department’s plan to host a community-wide gun surrender. It seems the residents of Greensboro are much smarter than the police chief there, as exactly none of them decided to voluntarily disarm themselves and leave their homes without protection. What cops did get was 1,000 “non-violence pledges” (I promise to be really, really good this year, Santa!) and a single BB gun.
You know how the old saying goes, “A well-armed society is a polite one.” Well, apparently the memo didn’t get to Greensboro, North Carolina’s police chief. Police there are encouraging residents to voluntarily turn in their guns and sign a “non-violence pledge.” I’m sure Greensboro’s criminals are quite thankful that the police department is helping make their jobs easier.
The Denver Police Protective Association is filing a lawsuit against the requirement that police officers wear body cameras while on duty. Naturally, they say they don’t oppose the accountability that body cameras create but then put up the biggest roadblock against implementing them.
Voters are sick and tired of the Democrat party’s lawlessness. San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s time as the face of the “sanctuary city” movement is over after voters showed their disgust at the ballot box.
