Police Go Where the Crime Is

Are the police friend or foe? Are they necessary to preserve order, or are they unnecessarily intrusive? Do they have society’s best interest in mind, or are they racist and violent? Heather Mac Donald, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, analyzes the numbers behind these hot-topic questions.

Now, at least one business is filing a lawsuit to hold them accountable.

British Police Admit Electric Vehicles are Useless for Police Work

By Eric Worrall – Re-Blogged From WUWT

h/t Breitbart; Police forces in Britain are facing questions over the waste of millions of pounds purchasing electric vehicles which are not up to the job of chasing criminals or responding to emergency situations.

Police ‘waste’ £1.5MILLION on electric cars that they admit are useless for chasing criminals because they ‘can’t go fast enough or far enough without a battery change’

  • Reports found cars do not meet demands of urgent response or pursuit driving
  • Forces have bought at least 448 environmentally-friendly vehicles to help them 
  • However almost all cars and vans are being used in non-emergency situations

Greenpeace have experienced a setback in their effort to stop global coal shipments.

Watch: Polish Border Guards Storm Greenpeace Boat Blocking Coal Shipment

BREITBART LONDON
10 Sep 2019

Video footage from Greenpeace showed the armed guards breaking a window to get into the captain’s bridge on the Rainbow Warrior, a tall sailing ship, and shouting that everyone should drop to the floor. The boarding occurred about 11 p.m. Monday.

Marek Jozefiak of Greenpeace said the ship’s captain and one activist remained detained Tuesday, along with the ship. Jozefiak, the coordinator of Greenpeace’s Climate and Energy campaign in Poland, expressed surprise at vehemence of the border guards’ actions against what he called a “peaceful action in defense of the environment.”

Law Enforcement Busted an LA Terror Plot, Likely Saving Dozens of Lives

By David Inserra – Re-Blogged From The Daily Signal

The FBI on April 26 arrested Mark Steven Domingo, a former Army infantryman, on charges of plotting an Islamist terrorist attack against a white nationalist rally in Long Beach, California.

That was the 110th Islamist terrorism plot or attack since 9/11 and the 97th plot or attack to be attempted or carried out by homegrown terrorists.

Domingo first popped onto the FBI’s radar at the start of March, when he posted a message in a private group of a social media platform declaring his desire to commit an attack in the Los Angeles area.

He declared that “America needs another [Las Vegas] event,” referencing the deadly October 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 dead and hundreds injured, and posted that “there [must be] retribution” for the March 13 attack on a mosque and an Islamic center in Christchurch, New Zealand, according to federal prosecutors’ criminal complaint.

A Tale Of Two School Shootings

By Elizabeth Vaughn – Re-Blogged From Freedom Outpost

Two school shootings. Two completely different outcomes. What made the difference? Blaine Gaskill, a brave, well-trained School Resource Officer (SRO), acted without delay, to stop the shooter. It’s time to place a School Resource Officer (SRO) inside every school in America.

  1. Armed former student, with long history of mental health issues and problems with law enforcement, whose behavior “was so frightening to teachers that he’d been banned from even carrying a backpack into school,” enters school carrying a black duffle bag and opens fire. SRO stands outside the building and waits. Over 7 ½ minutes, 17 students and faculty members are killed and many are wounded.
  1. Armed student enters school. Fires first shot. SRO hears shot and in less than one minute, he engages the shooter. SRO kills the shooter. Result: 14-year-old boy wounded, stable condition, 16-year-old girl wounded, critical condition.

Emergency Medical Teams ORDERED To STAND DOWN While Kids Bled Out After Florida Shooting

By Mac Slavo – Re-Blogged From Freedom Outpost

[Outside our usual fare, but safety affects everything. -Bob]

If you think like most, not much about the Parkland, Florida school shooting has added up so far. Now there are reports that the responding emergency medical teams sent in to save lives after the horrific shooting were told to “stand down” while some of the students bled out.

Natural News said it best:

It’s becoming increasingly obvious to every intelligent observer that someone wanted to maximize the body count from the shooting.

More Than the 1st Amendment

By Michael Cost – Re-Blogged From iPatriot

There is something not being mentioned about these NFL “protests,” which on their face are clearly seditious and subversive behavior. There are a lot of Americans who are claiming that these players have every right to protest and they are just expressing their 1st amendment rights. I would like to challenge those Americans to an informational duel! The 1st amendment does NOT say that you can lie to the American public for political gain! It states that CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW “abridging of free speech.” Congress has NOT made a law abridging their free speech, so the 1st amendment has no application in this at all, especially when you consider the laws they are violating with their so-called “freedom of speech!”

Handcuffed! Attorney General Sessions Orders Review

By Peter Coker – Re-Blogged From iPatriot

According to recent press reports, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered the Justice Department to review fourteen Consent Decrees from the Obama Justice Department to certain local police departments.

The Obama Administration took full advantage of incidents such as Ferguson, Missouri; Baltimore, Maryland, and the Black Lives Matter riots, to forcibly handcuff the policies of many police departments nationwide. President Obama essentially extorted cities and towns by saying in essence; “If you want to continue getting federal money, you have to sign and abide by the DOJ’s consent decree.”

The purpose of the Obama DOJ Consent Decrees was to tag police departments as being racist to minority residents and to restrict policing in minority neighborhoods, where proportionately, a majority of crimes occur. In other words, Obama and his DOJ ordered police departments to back-off in minority neighborhoods or risk losing federal funds to their departments.

Analysis of Washington Post Police-Shootings Data Reveals Surprising Result – Nearly 2x More Whites than Blacks Shot by Police

When Arrests Go Bad

By Willis Eschenbach – Re-Blogged From http://www.WattsUpWithThat.com

I got to thinking about the issues of race regarding the recent tragic police shootings, both the shootings of police and the shootings by police. The best data is from the Washington Post, which has a detailed site listing all of the people killed by police, which begins in 2015 and goes to the present. I thought I’d analyze their data. I looked at the data for the year 2015 because the full 2016 data is not in yet, and also in order to be able to compare it to other annual datasets.

First, there were 990 fatal police shootings in 2015. How does this compare to other causes of death? Well, I can’t tell you because so few people are killed by police. The number is so small that it is outside the range of the usual mortality lists. I can say that death by police is not in the top fifty causes of death in the US, so it is relatively rare. It is extremely rare for women, because the overwhelming majority of those killed by police were men.  And I would be greatly remiss if I did not highlight that in addition to the 990 civilian deaths, there were 51 police deaths in 2015 …

US Constitution vs Laws and Regulations

cropped-bob-shapiro.jpg   By Bob Shapiro

Law students are required to take a course in Conflicts of Law. What the course boils down to is, when two laws disagree in what they say, how do the courts decide which law takes precedent.

The US Constitution is the highest Law of the Land. If there is a conflict between a law, made by Congress, and the US Constitution, then the Constitution wins, and the law is Null and Void.

If a regulation, made by an Agency of the government, conflicts with either a Law or with the US Constitution, then the Regulation loses.
