Ridiculous Rhetoric Ruining Critical Conversation - The Police Need To Quit It!

Law Enforcement Officials Lose Credibility And Destroy Opportunity To Build Bridges By Clinging To Illogical Fallacies

"Words are more treacherous and powerful than we think." ~ Sartre   

When bad things happen, blame someone. Blame someone black. You might get better mileage. At least that's how it seems with police. Ask Susan Smith. And Anthony Fata too!

At the height of the civil rights movement, black Americans and many white allies had become sick and tired of the nonstop abuse. They decided they were going to stand up and not take it anymore. But save for word of mouth testimony, little evidence was available to highlight the extent of crimes committed under color of law.

That's changed. Gone are the days of police being able to abuse their power, exercise tyrannical rule over impoverished communities, kill at will, and not be held accountable and questioned whether their actions were justified.

Internet social media and cell phone cameras allow the world to see in living color, the kind of abuse that's been taking place and decried -- particularly in the black community -- yet ignored by a majority of Americans, for decades now.

But change is feared. Few institutions have shown as infantile, ludicrous and laughable a resistance to inevitable change as the law enforcement community.

NEWSFLASH: Beyonce Isn't Causing Cops To Get Killed
A Tennessee Sheriff heard gunfire outside his house Monday night. No one was injured, but the Sheriff took aim and fired back. He cited the Super Bowl 50 Halftime show, performed by Mrs. Jay-Z, as the cause of the attack on his residence. But how does he know this?

With no known suspects, Sheriff Robert Arnold of Rutherford, TN was certain he had a motive. Asked to elaborate he stated:
“With everything that’s happened since the Super Bowl, with law enforcement as a whole, I think we’ve lost five to seven officers, five deputy sheriffs since the Super Bowl, that’s what I’m thinking,” he told reporters Tuesday at a press conference. “You have BeyoncĂ©’s video and that’s kind of bled over into other things about law enforcement.”
The most asinine, most insane statements are being made by police "leadership" with a straight face. Somehow it seems these folks don't realize just how stupid and out of touch they sound.

The Tennessean reports the American Sheriff"s Association cites the recent killings of seven deputies nationwide, all being connected to Beyonce and her performance:

"The senseless killing of four law enforcement officers just this week — on the heels of the anti-police “entertainment” at the Sunday Super Bowl halftime show — reminds us that the men and women in law enforcement take a solemn oath that includes putting their lives on the line every day to protect our citizens."

Two of those deaths were Harford County Maryland Sheriff deputies Mark Logsdon and Patrick Dailey. Both killed by 68 year old David Evans, inside of a Panera Bread restaurant. Evans was white.

These men literally haven't even been buried yet, and already their dead bodies are being used by the propaganda pushers to further a political agenda. And this is being done with no shame either.

As a former radio DJ I can assure you, the demographics don't fit. Most 68 year old white men aren't readily influenced by black music performers.

Evans had a record that included assaulting police officers and multiple domestic violence crimes, with open warrants going back years. He was even a suspect in the non fatal shooting of his wife. Maybe we should talk more about that than a halftime show.

Or is the truth being avoided because so many in law enforcement are violent domestic abusers themselves? The profession is dominated by white males, many of them unhinged, and mentally unstable just like Evans.

But lets blame black people. That's so much easier than addressing the real issues and seeking a solution to improve the contentious relationship between the police and the black community. Beyond lip service, is there any true interest in repairing the damage?

That relationship has always been strained, why try to fix it now?

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
