  • Americans Need to Reinvent our Police Departments: How Do We Do It?   3 weeks 2 days ago

    Great pst @ #7! The wording is totally misleading, and giving DJT and his ilk a talking point because most people consider "defund" as gitting rid of police entirely.

  • Fox, Tucker and Trump: Get Your Knees off Their Necks   3 weeks 2 days ago

    Thom, Lately I have turned on Tucker Carlson and I have found him to be quite logical and he has called out Trump as well as many in his administration the latest being Jared Kushner. I am not ever going to say he is anywhere near center but I do find Brett Baier and Martha McCallum that precedes Carlson to be at least somewhat neutral and certainly far better than anything on CNN or MSNBC.

    Like it or not, Tucker Carlson is dead on saying the BLM movement has taken over the news cycle, and yes many are afraid and have taken steps to protect themselves and their businesses. Is this a result of Carlson or may I suggest it is more generated by the media and their 24/7 coverage of marches, rioting, and looting that followed the unfortunate murder of George Floyd? Please also note that during all the turmoil, stores that had armed owners protecting the doors were largely left untouched and that too was on national television.

    Am I surprised that the internet flared up with rumors that "they are coming to get you" and people all over the country in small towns took up arms? Hell no, people coming together to protect each other have been going on in this country for centuries whoever be the perceived enemy. Kneejerk reactions promote more kneejerk responses.

    There are lots of youtube videos of small town makeshift militia ushering out those wishing to do harm but the cursing tells me it is better left to the readers here to do their own research.

    Were they all racist driven? Probably mostly drawn from live media coverage of people looting and burning. I suggest regardless or color, race, or creed, none of them would have been welcomed in small town America on the nights following Floyd's murder at the hands of a crazed cop.

    An idea about wording: "defund the police" has conservatives accusing reformers of getting rid of police, even though it really means redirecting current police funding to less lethal and more effective measures. How about "re-fund the police" or "re-fund public safety"? Using the hyphen helps to understand the cops aren't going away, just that service to public safety is the goal and that is better for all of us. Thanks.

  • Americans Need to Reinvent our Police Departments: How Do We Do It?   3 weeks 2 days ago

    Reforms will take a couple of years to decide on, implement, modify, and judge. Minneapolis may likely be a wacky experiment in Wild West Anarchy? Retail stores in many areas it's already Open Season for shoplifting and downright looting... No more armed police zooming around in patrol cars? Yeehaw! Can you imagine multiple break-ins happening every night all over town?

    Gun sales have boomed, with a reported two million NEW gun owners first half 2020.. 1st Time gun owners who don't know much about guns. Last month broke the record for firearm sales. Online Video replays looting across the USA, and we have hordes of various White Confederates openly calling for a 2nd Civil War.. in this environment, somebody wants to de-militarize Police?

    Police Abuse Of Power has been happening in ugly public view for over 50 years. Anyone got a good story to trade? I'm a fellow Oregonian.. our history has been terrible, in a supposedly liberal state and town. James Chasse was white, but his mental illness led to murder by Portland cops 14 years ago... The cop who beat him to death crushing 26 bones, left PDX and was promptly hired in another town. His documentary on YouTube: Alien Boy.

    Eugene, home of The Oregon Ducks, is still paying settlements to 20+ women who were victims of Officer Magana and his friends on the Eugene force. Back around 2000, and for many years these cops raped women, in back seats of patrol cars, often at gunpoint. Yes the cops went to prison... but how could this happen in America? Reform is LONG overdue.. Its about time!

  • Americans Need to Reinvent our Police Departments: How Do We Do It?   3 weeks 3 days ago

    So how do we dig out a big fat juicy tick so deeply burrowed into our body politic without further destroying the host? We might soon find out if that's even possible in a country where violence and self-inflicted misery is so commonplace and so glorified -- a natural-seeming trait of humans struggling to survive on a harsh and unforgiving planet, a potentially fatal malady out of which we can't seem to evolve.

    A quick glance at the daily headlines in the Un-united States and around the world, or just the popular selection of "entertainment" on Netflix, drives the point home of just how fckd we really are as a stupid, dying species. Violence comes in many forms from police brutality in our smallest communities, as Legend lays out, to the irreversible destruction of our home planet. Why do we accept it? Why do we glorify it?

  • How immunity for cops and Facebook kills Americans   3 weeks 3 days ago

    As usual, our progressive community is trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Whomever coined the words" defund the police", wasn't thinking straight. All progressives know that phrase isn't to be taken literally, but the other side doesn't, and millions of voters won't vote for,, or believe in that "defunding". How about "reforming", or "change" being used in instead? By the use of that unfortunate framing, they've given the "Trumpististas" a weapon to use in the next election.

  • Americans Need to Reinvent our Police Departments: How Do We Do It?   3 weeks 3 days ago

    The Police are armed like the military because we have allowed the general population to be armed like the military. The Semi auto rifle is as close to the military version as you can get, considering the military rarely uses full auto. Interesting part is a lot of the police promote this civilian weaponry.

    My small town has military style gear, Drones, A mobile command center (super RV with ultra high tech gear inside). Police all seem to pump iron. Armed to the teeth on a normal daily basis. We have a Xmas Tree lighting ceremony every year where they display all of this. Not displayed for info, in use to watch the public light a tree!

    A lot of unmarked cruisers patrol the area. Women have been pulled over by fake police cars, raped and murdered. But the police still employ a lot of unmarked cars. Some are literally hot rods. What is wrong with a Police presence. That slows traffic. They obviously want the revenue generated by speeding tickets. The real winner is the insurance company that jacks up your rates for 5 years if you get a speeding ticket.

    I witnessed the local police roughing up a young girl pan handling with a sign. Obviously a kid down on her luck. They were both brutes manhandling this young girl. They had her hand cuffed and then literally threw her into the back seat of the cruiser. Then slammed the door and high fived. I called to complain. They would not take a complaint over the phone. Felt that I would be marked if I went in.

    Perhaps it would be a better question to ask, what political party is in charge of the cities where these outbreaks are most virulent.

    Minneapolis which is rapidly descending into the lokes of Portland and Seattle being the most recent.

    In Minneapolis, the democrats have been in full charge of the city council and the mayor's office since 1974 and both of those entities have full 100% control over the police department and all of its actions. Their current police chief is a progressive black man preceded by a lesbian chief of police. The progressive sheriff is an openly gay man.

    Clearly the problem originates with the leadership and hopefully, the voters in cities that suffer the same progressive leadership realize the errors come election day.

    Simple research shows Antifa's strong presence in that city and one of its leaders is none other than Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine's own son Linwood "Woody" Kaine.

    Daddy and mommy must be so proud.

    Time to go on what is wrong with Portland. Seattle has already been covered in the video Seattle is Dying.

    Conscription?

    Every locale shall support the local police, county and state police with a racially balanced lottery. Those selected must donate 5 years of their life to law enforcement. All 20-23 year olds, male & female, will all be ellibible. You serve 5 years after which you are awarded a four year college fund (G1 style), or can remain in the force of you so choose -- depending on available slots -- new applicants taking priority.

    That should solve the Power-Hungry applicant bias.

    Cameras are worn at all times, fully connected and immediately recorded into the cloud. As a cop you MUST be on your best behavior. Failure to do so risks your four year tuition.

    I could go on...

    On a more comical note; we may have another investigation coming on what I would dub Blue Tie Gate. If you notice that djt was wearing a blue tie on the eve of his trek to the church. The tie is good reason to believe the possibility of demonic possession since there couldn’t be any other logical reason for his iconic behavior.

    Thom! PLEASE stop telling the repug assholes how to get drumpft elected using the 12 th amendment!!!!! You keep telling them over and over and they might not have glommed onto this insidious way , but you keep telling them over and over. Sorry this is making me nuts for our side to give them the way to defeat us. Stop. How about giving the numbers of people who are not going to vote for a dictator. How about giving the info about how drumpf took away the first amendment rights of protesters in this United States, and what we can do about that. Thanks and I love you.

    One thing is self-evident and it’s not our unalienable rights! This country is being intentionally divided by a man who has voiced his commitment to do it. If we get caught up in his divisionary tactics and cannot rise above that attack with a hard show of solidarity, he will crescendo by trumping the election again (“if you don’t elect me, I will cause civil war”) and we will lose everything to this coup. The republican senate is either complicit or is driving, and it appears #1 is not who we think it is. Trust in our government has been compromised by the leaders themselves, how we move forward from here will define us.
