  1. According to the erudite folks at MPR they haven’t figured out the motive yet. They are seemingly mystified.

  2. We have created a nation of armchair lawyers – pontificating people who believe whatever sin THEY are guilty of can be rationalized through Facebook and Twitter and, therefore, become defacto law.

  3. No more affirmative action presidents.
    Indulging the moral vanity of educated baby boomers has been hurting American working people and making the world a more dangerous place since 1968.

  4. Robert Deer shot up an abortion clinic. Frank Roque shot and killed a Sikh a few days after 9/11. Scott Roeder killed abortionist George Tiller.
    Deer and Roque and Roeder hasve been classed as a ‘right-wing/Christian terrorists’ by the usual suspects — Alternet, HuffPo, etc. None of the killers was a member of any right wing terrorist group, none pledged loyalty to any R wing terror group, none were regular church goers. Each had a history of mental problems, and each had a lower than average IQ.

  5. Gavin Long is a really damning piece of evidence against BLM and Obama.

    From the history we have, he looks to be a guy that was following a path to prosperity. Along the way he became radicalized by BLM and their supporters. As time passed, and as dimwits like Obama, Mark Dayton and Nikema Leviathan Pounds egged him on, he became more angry and unstable.

  6. They’ve been warning us that right-wing, ex-military guys were time bombs waiting to go off and profiled as more of a threat than jihadists. Well, the Dallas and Baton Rouge shooters were both ex-military, as wished for. One even belonged to a group with “Freedom” in its name. Seems as if they were just a bubble off on the meme, though.

  7. Whose to blame? well according to B Obama on 7.10.16:

    “There are legitimate issues that have been raised, and there’s data and evidence to back up the concerns that are being expressed by these protesters.
    And if police organizations and departments acknowledge that there’s a problem and there’s an issue, then that, too, is going to contribute to real solutions. And, as I said yesterday, that is what’s going to ultimately help make the job of being a cop a lot safer. It is in the interest of police officers that their communities trust them and that the kind of rancor and suspicion that exists right now is alleviated.”

    a little Maoist self-criticism will solve everything

  8. Can Swiftee account for his whereabouts on Sunday ?

    Early reports indicate he spent a relaxing weekend in his pied-à-terre inside yer skull.

  9. It was Obama’s JD, under Holder (Black man) and Lynch (Black woman), that claimed several high-profile killings of Blacks by law enforcement to be racially motivated when they had no evidence that this was the case.
    These people are supposed to be officers of the court and are supposed to represent all Americans. It is not unreasonable to expect them to keep their fucking mouths shut if they do not know what they are talking about.

  10. One wonders what would happen if Obama told people to get a grip, and showed them video of the integration of Ole Miss, or of water cannon and attack dogs at earlier protests, or imagines of lynchings, and said “while there may be some officers out there issuing DWB citations, let’s not forget that we’ve made a TON of progress in this regard, and the biggest threat we face is not from the police, but from each other.”

    I visited BLM’s site recently, and it was striking that they do not come out in full support of body cameras–citing privacy concerns and the like. One would figure that if there were any doubt about what happened in a given situation, “roll tape” is exactly what these activists would want, but that’s not the case. I think many are painfully aware of the story that “roll tape” would tell, and it’s not good for their movement.

  11. There have been, without a doubt, instances of unjustified police use of force. I’d not be at all surprised if blacks encountered these more often than whites.

    But the specific cases that BLM has politicized all have one thing in common. They are instances in which it is clear that the police use of force was fully justified.

    Why does BLM choose to politicize these cases, rather than the cases in which the police acted improperly? You’d think that if they really wanted change, they’d focus on cases in which they had a chance of building a political consensus for change. But the cases they choose to concentrate their efforts on are uniformly those in which there is no chance of building such a consensus, because any sane and honest person, looking at the circumstances, would judge that the use of force was justified.

    My opinion? BLM is concentrating on the cases they do because they don’t want change, they want controversy.

  12. I seem to remember the Black Panthers intimidating voters at the polls in Philly during the 2008 election. I wonder what Holder has to say about the same group open carrying rifles at the 2016 Republican convention. Does one believe they will be intimidating folks, or just exercising there rights?

  13. Hey – remember 1968? Riots, racial tension, the government killing people, disrupted political conventions? Weren’t all of those blamed on the President?

  14. Well the flag is already half staff for the Nice murders. So we lower it to 1/4 staff for Wendy? What’s left? Just leave it on the ground for Baton Rouge?

  15. Both Gavin Long and Micah Johnsom used the 2nd amendment exactly how Second Amendment advocates say it was intended to be used. It would appear both Long and Johnson felt oppressed by the State. They bought the guns and they decided when to use them.

  16. No, Emery, that’s not what Second Amendment supporters say. The correct formulation is “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    Killing cops is not throwing off the Government, nor providing a replacement Government to secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity. It’s just murder.

    Effective sarcasm is effective because it is based in truth. Try it, sometime.

  17. Emery, I was googling up your latest plagiarizations to mock you for a mentally defective buffoon, again. Smoked a real nice Macanudo, too.

    Mr. D: ++Good

  18. “Emery, I was googling up your latest plagiarizations to mock you…”
    That couldn’t have taken more than 5 minutes. What did you do with the other 23:55?

  19. I think many are painfully aware of the story that “roll tape” would tell, and it’s not good for their movement.

    And this PRECISELY why body cameras are so desperately needed. 1% to identify cases where they may have gone overboard, and 99% to show they did what they were supposed to do and any claims of excessive use of force are invalid. After the last couple of years, every good honest patrol officer SHOULD want this to protect themselves.

  20. Bill C–take a look at blacklivesmatter.com. It is an eye opener, and (unless you’re a peace officer) the nastiest thing I can see there is not their unease with body cameras. It is their endorsement of further downgrading the nuclear family, pretending they can achieve strong extended family and community structures without a strong nuclear family–and this very thing is what does the biggest part to killing something like 7000 people a year.

    Yes, I’m saying that at least at the upper levels, BLM is endorsing the problem.

  21. Yes, Pen, we’ll (per your link) ignore the fact he didn’t want to be associated with any group, but we’re going to simultaneously take seriously his dalliance with sovereign citizen while ignoring his connections with Nation of Islam, the Black Panthers, and BLM.

    Look up “cherry picking”, Pen. And for that matter, since when are conservatives the same as anarchists?

  22. Problem is, penny, SAC has more in common with BLM than anything “right”. But then you probably did not read the article, nor understand what “right” means. It is all wrong to you, unless it is left.

  23. peev

    per KC Star: http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/article90183857.html

    in addition to his established association with the Nation of Islam.Gavin Eugene Long claimed he was a member of the “black nationalist sovereign citizen group known as the Washitaw Nation, filings in Jackson Co., Missouri show. The records, which were first reported by the Kansas City Star, show that in May 2015, Long changed his name to Cosmo Ausar Setepenra and declared himself a sovereign citizen of the United Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Mu’ur Nation.”

  24. black nationalist sovereign citizen group

    Well, that settles it. This Long person must be an old white guy with a beer gut and cowboy boots, smoking a cigarillo and firing off his Colt .45 with the right hand while holding a can of Colt 45 in the other. Oh… Nevermind…

  25. well at least the United Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Mu’ur Nation has a Royal Interim Minister of Sanitation/Recycling so they’re not savages

  26. I’m pretty sure Mu’ur is a goofball derivation of Moor. That sure as hell isn’t a Posse Comitatus joint, slick.

  27. in addition to his established association with the Nation of Islam.Gavin Eugene Long claimed he was a member of the “black nationalist sovereign citizen group known as the Washitaw Nation

    Oh, wow.

    So you mean that when Pen saw the phrase “Sovereign Citizen”, he should have read further, rather than assuming the chanting points that the left has turned into cliches don’t have different meanings?

    Oh, that’s gotta smart.

  28. A teenage Afghan refugee armed with an axe and knife injured four people on a train in southern Germany before being shot dead by police, officials say.
    Three people were seriously hurt and one suffered minor injuries in the attack in Wurzburg, police said.
    Initial reports said up to 20 people had been injured but it was later revealed that at least 14 had been treated for shock.
    The motive for the attack is not yet clear.
    Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said the attacker was a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who had been living in the nearby town of Ochsenfurt.
    He told public broadcaster ARD that the teenager appeared to have travelled to Germany as an unaccompanied minor.
    Mr Herrmann said authorities were looking into reports that the attacker had yelled out “an exclamation”. Some witnesses quoted by German media said they had heard him shout “Allahu akbar” (“God Is Great”) during the attack.

    Germany, eh? Must have been a neo-nazi Afghan Muslim.

  29. The attack in Germany reminds us that Emery’s claim on benign admission of refugees may not be all that, doesn’t it?

    And to get in ahead of Swiftee, if only the perp had tried that stunt in a Waffle House in South Carolina, the story would have had a much quicker happy ending.

  30. Another completely random, motiveless attack . . .
    I think the authorities should look into the attacker’s religion. I’ve seen Inherit the Wind and Dirty Dancing. I know what prudes those Christians can be.

    A French woman and her three young daughters were severely injured when they were stabbed at a holiday resort on Tuesday by a Moroccan-born man who reportedly shouted that they were too scantily dressed.

    The man was arrested after the attack at the Alpine resort of Garde-Colombe, near Laragne, in southern France.

    The youngest girl, aged 8, was rushed to hospital in Grenoble with a punctured lung, according to initial reports.

    Her mother, 46, and sisters aged 12 and 14, are being treated at the hospital of Gap, closer to the scene of the attack. Their injuries are serious but not life-threatening, hospital sources said.

  31. Based on Cologne and Swedish cover up of crimes and misdemeanors committed by “refugees”, we can only presume for every one reported incident there are at least 10 more.

  32. It strikes me that, per JPA’s comment, these things appear to be making the front page only when blood is spilled and people can’t talk around it anymore.

  33. BB, you have to remember, according to eTASS, there is no rampant anti-Semitism in Europe either. It is all just isolated incidents. No trends, no rationale, nothing to draw parallels to, nothing to worry about. To say anything but is Hasbara! So it is no accident he chooses to ignore “refugee” violence either. Does not fit his narrative of open borders utopia!

  34. And this side of the pond, I guess liberals won’t admit that government has anything to do with the state of the inner cities, or that government had anything to do with the 2008 recession, or a host of other things. Guess I may as well get used to it and pray that eyes may be opened.
