    This.

    I think fewer laws and non enforcement of victimless ones would go a long way.

    Nobody truly wants to hate on the police but what they're used for is ridiculous.

    But again, you can’t get rid of QI. You think some people have no business being cops now, go ahead and get rid of that and see what happens.

    You can and you should. QI is what insulates bad cops from the consequences of their actions. But anyway, let's say we can't. Because the reality is we won't. Stop making and enforcing stupid laws, and even cops with poisoned hearts would be less likely to do the Judge Dredd routine on people who aren't really hurting anybody.

    I agree with the laws part, that’s our responsibility to reign in legislators. But a lot of the blame that gets put on QI should be on the union agreements that municipalities sign.

    I agree with your last sentence except to say I think it's both. We give cops way too much leeway. No one wants to say it, but part of a cop's job is to protect the rights of the guy he is trying to arrest. I don't envy that position. But when he fails at that, he should face consequences rather than be protected by the union and other institutional barriers, including QI.

    Jason Charter was arrested at his residence Thursday morning, sources say

    Jake Gibson 7 mins ago


    Federal law enforcement officials on Thursday arrested a man in Washington they call a “ringleader” in the recent attempt to destroy the Andrew Jackson statue in Lafayette Square near the White House.

    Law enforcement sources tell Fox News that Jason Charter was arrested at his residence Thursday morning, without incident, and charged with destruction of federal property. These sources add that Charter has connections to Antifa and was in a leadership role on the night of June 22 when a large group of protesters tried to pull down the statue.


    “They were very organized,” a federal law enforcement official said. “Charter was on top of the statue and directing people ... they had acid, chisels, straps and a human chain preventing police from getting to the statue.

    Protesters say the Andrew Jackson statue is offensive because he was a slave owner and because of his treatment of Native Americans.

    Another man, Graham Lloyd, 37, turned himself in for similar charges in Portland, Maine, and had an initial appearance in federal court there on Wednesday afternoon. Lloyd is also accused of destruction of federal property for his role in the attempt to take down the Jackson statue.


    A magistrate judge in Maine has transferred Lloyd’s case to federal court in Washington D.C.

    These arrests come in the wake of the June 24 executive order signed by President Trump intended to protect monuments and statues.

    Trump tweeted, “I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials and Statues- and combating recent Criminal Violence. Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country.”

    And now it’s time to eat your own. The backfire before the backlash.



    BLM Los Angeles Co-Founder: ‘We Live in A City that Is Largely Liberal White Supremacists’

    Hannah Bleau 2 Jul 2020




    Black Lives Matter activists in Los Angeles believe that they live in a city that is filled with “liberal white supremacists.”

    “So it’s important as we say things — like I see your sign ‘fuck Donald Trump,’ yeah ‘fuck Donald Trump’ — that we remember that we live in a city that is largely liberal white supremacists,” Dr. Melina Abdullah, co-founder of Black Lives Matter LA told an enthusiastic crowd in a video posted by the People’s City Council on Wednesday:


    Abdullah, a professor of Pan-African Studies at Cal State LA, went on to describe liberal white supremacists as those who have “black friends that sit at the dinner table” and those who “speak Spanish.”

    “So the kind of white supremacists that have black friends that sit at the dinner table. Right? That brag about having served in the Peace Corps. Right? That speak Spanish. Right?” she asked.

    “The kind of white supremacist who will smile in your face but enact policies that kill our people,” she added, calling Trump a “white supremacist terrorist” and encouraging the crowd to shout, “fuck Eric Garcetti.”

    The claim of liberal white supremacists purportedly dominating L.A. comes as activists across the nation demand the removal of historic monuments in the name of racial justice — even those that are unrelated to the Confederacy.

    The New York Times heightened the demands on Wednesday, publishing a piece detailing several grievances against Mount Rushmore, “citing its location on ‘Indigenous land,’ the sculptor’s purported ties to white supremacy, and two of its subjects’ slave ownership,” as Breitbart News detailed:


    The Times piece follows several instances of activists taking matters into their own hands, vandalizing and destroying various historic monuments and sculptures in their self-described quest for justice.

    Last month, vandals in Madison, Wisconsin, destroyed a statue of Col. Hans Christian Heg, described as “an immigrant from Norway who died fighting for the Union against slavery.” Demonstrators decapitated the statue and threw it into a nearby lake:

    I got in a pretty bad accident on a street in downtown Long Beach today. Some fuckwit neckbeard tried blowing by me on a two lane street, sideswiped me hard on my drivers side bounced across the street and t-boned two more cars going the other way. One car took out at least one other car parked on the curb. One of the drivers of the worst t-boned car was pretty fucked up and had to be ambulanced. My car was totaled and my wife and I were super lucky to walk away with not more than (in my case) bruised ribs. Dozens of pedestrian witnesses including people eating at an outside dining patio, not a single one would talk to the cops to say what happened. One asshole was yelling at the cops to leave - "we don't need you here." Fuck Long Beach.
