Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- The “Future” of Policing in the USA, as currently being pushed by Bidenistas and other Democrat/Communists:

The “Minneapolis PD” is officially morphing into the “Minneapolis Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention.” Call it “DCSVP,” for short! This evolutionary scenario will play-out in nearly every metro area with a communist, aka Democrat Party, Mayor (which includes nearly all of them).

Some “features” of this new department: Size of the Department drastically reduced from current level. Far fewer patrol officers. Detectives are essentially done away with. Tactical (SWAT) units eliminated.

This catastrophic reduction in police personnel is also already being implemented in Chicago, NYC, Los Angeles, Seattle, et al. Here is what we can expect to see:

1. “Firearms personnel” to represent less than two-percent of sworn officers (no longer called “police”). Patrol officers will now go about their duties unarmed (UK model)!?

2. No personally-owned firearms nor ammunition used, owned, nor carried! “Special” officers will check-out handguns and ammunition from stations’ armories before shifts, and check them back in at the end of their watch. Even “firearms officers” will not be permitted to bear arms at any time other than when they are on watch. Routine concealed carry by officers is absolutely eliminated (UK/Canadian model).

Voices currently failing to condemn violent rioters and looters are the same voices planning to take your legally-owned guns in 2021. How are you going to vote?

3. Long-guns eliminated (carbines, rifles, shotguns, counter-sniper rifles). Pistols only, and even then, only born by “special” officers.

4. Tear-gas, Tasers, bean-bag guns, OC, Bruiser, nearly all less-lethal police equipment eliminated.

5. “Chief” of the DCSVP, in order to be even considered for the job, must have “non-law-enforcement experience in community safety services [read community-organizing] only, including public health and ‘restorative-justice’”

6. Current LEOs on-duty in Minneapolis, Chicago, Los Angles, Seattle, NYC are leaving the department, and the State, in droves. Owing to punitive budget cuts, there will be no new Academy Classes in any of these cities any time soon. Who would apply anyway?

Democrat/Communists are deliberately purging departments of the “old guard.” Experienced (read that: “competent”) police officers must go.

Results we’re seeing already.

Violent crime drastically increasing (hang on to your hat this holiday weekend as we try and celebrate America's birthday!). Petty crime drastically increasing. Mob violence drastically increasing, and it will all grow exponentially worse as we approach election day 2020.

They’ll be no let-up.

Democrat/Communists will demand that licensed concealed-carry be rescinded, in all states. Private ownership of guns will be prohibited, by law, shortly thereafter. “Police” won’t protect you, and they don’t want you protecting yourself.

In addition, Democrat/Communist politicians, along with their liberal snowflake supporters, actually believe that this “first round” of concessions will somehow “satisfy” the leftist Mob are even dumber than their wimpy Republican colleagues (if such a thing can be imagined).

7. Most sinister of all, a separate agency, the “Political Police,” who are constantly heavily armed (rifles, shotguns, machine guns) will be quietly created. Members will be recruited from ANTIFA/BLM.

BHO tried to similarly create his own “NKVD” in 2014, but was thwarted by Congressional Republicans (back when some Republicans, at least, had spines).

This will be the “new NKVD,” will be magically exempt from restrictive firearm bans and controls, as well as owned and operated by Democrat/Communists.

Their mission is two fold:

  • A. Provide continuous armed security for Democrat/Communist mayors, governors, and city council members. Citizens don’t get armed protection, but “party members” do!

When the NKVD shoots people, it will be kept from the news and never investigated.

Just like old times!

  • B. Surveillance of the “non-revolutionaries.” Americans who pay their taxes, obey the law, work for a living, don’t riot, enjoy their personal and economic freedom (all soon to be eliminated). They are the hated members of the “Bourgeois” (French for “Townsman”).

It’s gulags for us, and the NKVD will escort us there.

The trip will be, as always, one-way!

“Once the dream of ‘paradise’ starts to turn into reality, here and there people begin to crop-up who stand in its way. and so rulers of paradise must build a little ‘gulag,’ this side of Eden!” ~ Milan Kundera

MARYLAND GUN RIGHTS SUBJECT TO “PERMISSION” BY STATE: PROBLEMS ILLUSTRATED

Maryland Flag NRA
Maryland's recent “catastrophic hardware failure” illustrates issues with asking permission for Constitutional rights. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- 2020 continues to serve up examples of why Americans should not tolerate gun control schemes that require citizens to obtain government permission before exercising their Second Amendment rights. This week, the Maryland State Police experienced what they termed a “catastrophic hardware failure” that interrupted that state’s ability to process regulated firearm purchase applications. The failure complicated Marylanders’ ability to access handguns at a time when many residents are seeking to protect themselves.

In order to purchase a handgun in Maryland, a prospective gun owner must first obtain a Handgun Qualification License. Applicants must complete a firearms safety training course and undergo a fingerprint-based background check. The application process costs $50, not including fingerprinting fees.

On top of this rigorous requirement, a Maryland resident must fill out a 77R Application and Affidavit to Purchase a Regulated Firearm. The applicant is then subjected to a redundant background check, a $10 fee, and a 7-day waiting period. The private transfer of handguns is prohibited in Maryland, so all handgun transactions must be conducted pursuant to this procedure.

In a June 22 advisory memo sent to firearm dealers, the Maryland State Police explained that the hardware failure “has caused an interruption in the Maryland State Police Licensing Division’s (MDSPLD) ability to complete background investigations, specifically, for regulated firearm purchase applications (77Rs), handgun qualification license applications (HQLs) and MD wear and carry permit applications (handgun permits).” The document noted that it was the regulated firearm purchase applications that were most affected.

Fortunately, Maryland law contains a safety-valve provision for just such circumstances. MD Code, Public Safety, § 5-123 provides, “(a) A licensee may not sell, rent, or transfer a regulated firearm until after 7 days following the time a firearm application is executed by the firearm applicant, in triplicate, and the original is forwarded by the prospective seller or transferor to the Secretary.” This means that a firearm dealer may proceed with a handgun transfer on the eighth day after the dealer submitted a customer’s regulated firearm purchase application, even if the state police have not affirmatively approved the transfer.

However, in their advisory memo, the state police encouraged firearms dealers to forego the right to complete a handgun transfer – even after seven days have passed.

The memo noted, “The MDSPLD [Maryland State Police Licensing Division] encourages RFDs [Regulated Firearm Dealers] not to transfer these firearms until background checks have been completed.”

This “encourage[ment]” takes on a more mandatory character when one considers that Maryland gun dealers are subject to both federal and state licensing requirements. The same Maryland State Police Licensing Division that made the request for dealers halt lawful handgun transfers controls dealer licensing.

On June 24, the state police announced that they were “able to their database system to a fully operational status.” However, they also acknowledged a “backlog of regulated firearm purchase applications” and that “the process to complete all applications on file is expected to take several days.”

If the Maryland government holding up lawful gun transfers due to their own inability to process background checks sounds familiar, that’s because it is.

Back in 2013, at a time when both President Barack Obama and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley were pursuing gun control, Maryland’s background check system experienced a months-long backlog. NRA filed suit against then-Secretary of the Department of State Police Col. Marcus L. Brown. The complaint sought to have the court force the state into meeting the requirement that applications be processed within seven days and to make immediate determinations on all applications that had already been in the backlog more than seven days. Further, the suit argued for the state to recognize that gun dealers be allowed to transfer firearms to purchasers whose application had been pending more than seven days but had yet to be processed.

As part of avoiding the suit, the state made clear that gun dealers are allowed to transfer regulated firearms to customers following the seven day waiting period, but prior to receiving a determination on the purchaser’s application from the state police.

A June 7, 2013 advisory memo from the state police noted, “a regulated firearm may be lawfully sold, leased or transferred by a licensed firearms dealer or other person after the seven-day waiting period, provided that the dealer or person has not received notice that the application has been placed on hold or disapproved by Maryland State Police (Public Safety Article Sec. 5-125(b)) and the dealer or person does not have actual knowledge or reasonable cause to believe that the recipient is disqualified from possessing a regulated firearm under Maryland or federal law.”

At the bottom, the problem is not that Maryland continues to “encourage” the gun dealers that they regulate to disavow their customers’ Second Amendment rights. The problem is a regime that requires permission to exercise a constitutional right. The record is clear, governments like Maryland have repeatedly shown that at times they are unwilling or incapable of granting that permission.

Consider what gun owners in other parts of the country have experienced this year. In several jurisdictions, governors and local officials ordered gun stores closed during the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak. In states that have criminalized the private transfer of firearms, this effectively cut off law-abiding citizens’ ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights. In other jurisdictions, officials curtailed or cut-off access to licenses needed to acquire firearms or exercise the Right-to-Carry. All of this occurred at a time when Americans most-needed their Second Amendment rights, as evidenced by the record-breaking number of background checks conducted through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Check System (NICS).

The way to avoid these unacceptable scenarios is to reject firearm owner licensing and so-called “universal background check” schemes that create a prior restraint on the exercise of constitutional rights. Once such a system is in place, citizens must count on their government to act in an honest and competent manner in administering their rights. As history has made clear, this is nothing anyone should be forced to rely upon.

MINNESOTA STATE REP.: ANTIFA & MUSLIM GROUPS PLAN TO “POLICE MINNEAPOLIS UNDER MUSLIM RULE”

It would have sounded farfetched just weeks ago. It doesn’t anymore. My latest in FrontPage:

As the city of Minneapolis moves to dismantle its police force, Minnesota state Rep. Steve Green on Tuesday stated the obvious that virtually everyone else has been tiptoeing around and pretending isn’t there: “What you’re looking at, in my humble opinion, is communism moving into Minneapolis and St. Paul.” And not just Communism, but the Leftist/Islamic alliance. Green asserted that Antifa and Muslim organizations plan to “police Minneapolis under Muslim rule.” Those who scoff at such a notion simply aren’t paying attention to recent developments.

The Minneapolis City Council voted two weeks ago to abolish the city’s police force. Its plans beyond that have so far been sketchy, but something is going to have to be put in place as an alternative to the police. The New York Times noted that “many have called for relying more on self-policing by the community, in the way attendees often do at events like music festivals, with the police stepping in only when a true emergency arises. Some cited as an example how, in the days after the killing of Mr. Floyd, teams made up of dozens of members of the American Indian Movement patrolled streets and directed traffic in the Little Earth housing community in Minneapolis.”

If members of the local community end up policing Minneapolis, what might that look like? Back in 2016, a series of Minneapolis Muslims in man-on-the-street interviews stated matter-of-factly that they preferred Islamic law over American law. We have seen Sharia patrols in Germany, Britain, and even New York City, where the Muslim Community Patrol (MCP) is decked out in uniforms that strong resemble New York Police Department uniforms, and drives cars carefully designed to look like NYPD cars, to enforce “fundamentals of the Sharia.”

Muslim leader Siraj Wahhaj explained what that meant: “The mosques need protection and the MCP cars can help stop people who were not following the rules and regulations of the sharia, doing what they’re not supposed to be doing, but still doing it.” According to a Muslim involved with the MCP, this would involve stopping “Muslim women being out after dark, Muslim men hanging out in the corners doing dope, Muslims drinking liquor,” and enforcing, “basically, the fundamentals of the Sharia.”

If such a community patrol is launched in Minneapolis, it is likely to focus on the same things, but not do anything about the fact that the 5th Congressional District in Minneapolis, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, is the jihad terror recruitment capital of the United States. Stopping young Muslims from engaging in jihad activity is unlikely to be a high priority for a group that is dedicated to enforcing Sharia, since Sharia calls upon Muslims to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers.

The Sharia enforcers’ hard-Left allies in Antifa would have no problem with this. Islam historically has never had any difficulty coexisting with authoritarian governments; in fact, it is free republics that have never proved to be compatible with Islamic law. Consequently, Steve Green’s words don’t appear farfetched at all. The unholy alliance of Leftists and Islamic supremacists sees that its moment is now, and is grabbing all it can.

How likely is it that Minneapolis really could end up under Islamic rule, with the blessing and cooperation of the hard-Left? According to the Minnesota Reformer, another Minnesota state Representative, Mohamud Noor of Minneapolis, did not deny the truth of Green’s statements. Instead, when asked about them, he “said rather than talk about things that inflame people and create division, Minnesota needs to address the challenge before it.” And of course, talk of Antifa/Islamic rule in Minneapolis might “inflame people,” so keep quiet. Keep quiet, that is, if you oppose such an eventuality, not if you favor it. Said Noor: “Minnesota is awake. They understand the challenges; they have been hearing the challenges for far too long. And we can’t wait any longer.”

Steve Green may turn out to have been a prophetic voice far sooner than anyone expects. And if any free people who may still be in Minneapolis want to head this off, the time is now to “inflame people” – not to riot and destroy after the manner of the Left, but to stand up decisively now and stop the power-grab of these insidious totalitarian forces.

PRESIDENT TRUMP ORDERS LAW ENFORCEMENT TO ARREST ANYONE VANDALIZING FEDERAL MONUMENTS

BY BOB ADELMANN

SEEhttps://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/36122-president-trump-orders-law-enforcement-to-arrest-anyone-vandalizing-federal-monuments;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

President Trump authorized federal law-enforcement officials on Tuesday to arrest anyone vandalizing “any monument, statue or other such Federal property,” charging them under the Veterans Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act.

His tweet late Sunday night laid the groundwork for Monday’s order: “Numerous people [were] arrested in D.C. for the disgraceful vandalism in Lafayette Park, of the magnificent Statue of Andrew Jackson, in addition to the exterior defacing of St. John’s Church across the street. 10 years in prison under the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act. Beware!”

Early Tuesday morning he made it official:

I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison.… This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!

This was a major theme in Trump’s 2016 campaign and is rapidly ascending to prominence in his reelection efforts.

During his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in July of 2016, he made it clear that he would be “the president of law and order,” stating,

Together, we will lead our party back to the White House, and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace. We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order….

The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. Any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead.

The American people will come first, he said, adding,

My plan will begin with safety at home — which means safe neighborhoods, secure borders, and protection from terrorism. There can be no prosperity without law and order….

I will work with, and appoint, the best prosecutors and law-enforcement officials in the country to get the job done. In this race for the White House, I am the Law and Order candidate.

The president had the chance to reinforce that position following the commencement of the George Floyd riots. On June 1, Trump gave a short speech from the White House, saying, “My first and highest duty as President is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do.”

He promised that Floyd “will not have died in vain”, adding,

But we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protestors to be drowned out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peaceful and peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities, and as their President, I will fight to keep them safe.

I will fight to protect you. I am your President of law and order.

This generated faux concerns from predictable parties that Trump was becoming a dictator. Far-left Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) called Trump’s speech “fascist”: “The fascist speech Donald Trump just delivered verged on a declaration of war against American citizens. I fear for our country tonight and will not stop defending America against Trump’s assault.”

California Democrat Senator Kamala Harris tweeted, “These are not the words of a president. They are the words of a dictator.”

Law and Order was the key plank in the platform that won the presidency for Richard Nixon in 1968. Just before that election, the Wall Street Journal reported, “It’s well documented by now that law and order is the No. 1 domestic issue of this election.” Polls asking which candidate, Nixon or his opponent, Hubert Humphrey, could best “maintain law and order” gave Nixon a 12-point lead over Humphrey.

Whether those defacing monuments and burning cities know it or not, they are playing into Trump’s hands. Within minutes of his June 2 speech his reelection campaign began running ads promoting his presidency as one of “Triumph. Leadership. Law and Order.” One may count on others following cuts from his speech in Tulsa on Saturday as well as clips from his “monument protection” announcement on Tuesday.

It worked for Nixon. It’s likely to work for Trump as well.

 

SEATTLE “CHOP” ZONE TURNS DEADLY; RESIDENT “WANTS NEIGHBORHOOD BACK”

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The slaying of a 19-year-old man and wounding of another in Seattle’s so-called “CHOP” (for Capitol Hill Organized Protest) zone over the weekend could be a game-changer politically for the city’s far-left administration.

A Twitter message from “Capitol Hill Neighbors” sums it up: “This is no longer about BLM – it’s chaos. A teenager is dead and somewhere a mother grieves. Neighbors support BLM and free speech but demand the City Council comes to its senses and negotiates w/SPD and mayor to clear the area. We want our neighborhood back!”

Six city blocks in uptown Seattle’s Capitol neighborhood, including a popular city park, were essentially surrendered to protesters in the wake of violent demonstrations in the city. The riot and aftermath protests were initially in reaction to the death of George Floyd while in custody of Minneapolis, Minn., police, one of whom kept a knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes.

But things have gone beyond that, and an assertion by Socialist Councilwoman Kshama Sawant, published in The Stranger, a Seattle alternative newspaper, attempts to blame the deadly shooting on right-wing extremists, and ultimately President Donald Trump. At least nobody has so far blamed it on the “easy availability of guns,” but that is certainly possible.

According to The Stranger, Sawant issued this statement: “It is no accident that right-wing hate and violence has grown dramatically with Donald Trump in the White House. If this killing turns out to be a right-wing attack, President Trump bears direct responsibility, since he has fomented reactionary hatred specifically against the peaceful Capitol Hill occupation, and even threatened to intervene with federal troops. Also responsible are the conservative and corporate media outlets, both locally and nationally, which have themselves whipped up right-wing hate by completely misrepresenting the nature of the peaceful protest occupation, and who are continuing to do so even now, claiming that this shooting proves the CHOP is descending into chaos. Seattle’s establishment Mayor Jenny Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best also share responsibility for having portrayed our protest movement as violent.”

Apparently Sawant believes Seattleites have forgotten some burned police vehicles and trashed and looted businesses downtown. That unrest eventually led to the occupation several days later, and she knows it.

At a rally in Tulsa, Okla., over the weekend, Trump told the audience he has offered to help take back the seized area, but so far Democrat Washington Gov. Jay Inslee apparently hasn’t requested it.

KIRO News, the local CBS affiliate, identified the dead teen as Lorenzo Anderson, “a local rapper who goes by the name ‘Lil Mob.’”

What happened when police tried to respond to the shooting turned into bad publicity for supporters of the CHOP zone. According to the Seattle Police Blotter—with body cam video to back it up—“Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims.” By the time police were able to safely move in, both shooting victims had been transported separately by private vehicle to the hospital with “volunteer medics” attending their wounds. At last report, the surviving wounded victim was in intensive care.

KOMO News, the ABC affiliate in Seattle, quoted Victoria Beach, representing the African American Community Advisory Council, stating, “I’m so mad at the mayor. I feel like she might as well have had her hand on that gun because she’s allowing this.”

She was referring to Mayor Jenny Durkan, whom many critics of the CHOP zone believe has treated those behind the takeover of several square blocks on the city’s Capitol Hill with proverbial kid gloves. She has talked about negotiating, but now one person is dead in a shooting.

Durkan is the mayor who said the protesters aren’t terrorists, they are patriots.

KOMO ran a survey via Twitter asking whether the city should “move in now to end” the CHOP zone occupation. More than 22,000 viewers responded, with 72 percent favoring an immediate end to the zone.

During his remarks in Tulsa, the president stated that every city where there are continuing problems of unrest is governed by Democrats. Durkan is among the most liberal. A gun control supporter, her administration hasn’t made a peep about a widely-circulated video showing one of the alleged leaders in the CHOP handing an AR15 from the trunk of his car to an unidentified young man with no background check or waiting period, as required by citizen initiatives heavily supported by Seattle voters.

Among the demands of CHOP zone occupiers is to defund or abolish the police. A headline piece in Liberty Park Press on that subject was almost prescient. Apparently, keeping them out of the CHOP is having a similar effect.

It could only be a matter of time before the situation becomes politically untenable.

OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: PRO-BLM MAYOR CRIES “DOMESTIC TERRORISM” AFTER HER HOME VANDALIZED

Fueling the mob is all fun and games until it turns on you.

A mayor from Washington state who has been supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement — even as it has, at times, descended into rioting, looting, arson, and killing in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death — cried “domestic terrorism” after vandals damaged her home.

As The Olympian reports, two protest groups with opposing ideologies converged in downtown Olympia over the weekend, at which time some became destructive, smashing windows, spray-painting businesses, and burning flags.

One of the groups, aligned with Black Lives Matter, consisted of 50 black-clad protesters who arrived at Sylvester Park for a rally advertised on social media as similar to last Friday’s open-mic protest in the downtown area. 

The second group was made up of about 30 persons wearing neon-yellow t-shirts emblazoned on the front and back with the word “peacekeepers.” Some held paintball guns.

The black-clad group marched on City Hall before heading for downtown, stealing trash cans and “ROAD WORK AHEAD” signs from parking lots and sidewalks, flipping them over and dragging them through the streets. The “peacekeepers” put the public property back up while the BLM group heckled them.

Eventually, the black-clad group made its way up Capitol Way and into the South Capitol neighborhood to the home of Olympia Mayor Cheryl Selby (shown), where they chanted “abolish the police” and one participant sprayed her front porch and door with “BLM.”

A man holding a blunt object told the group of vandals to leave, threatening them if they didn’t. 

Selby and her family were not home at the time of the incident, but her neighbors began texting her about it when the mob arrived on site.

“I’m really trying to process this,” she told The Olympian over the phone. “It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair.”

“It hurts when you’re giving so much to your community,” the mayor added.

Selby’s home was also targeted two years ago during a May Day demonstration. Protesters gathered in her neighborhood, spreading around leaflets and directing chants at her.

Yet the mayor has been supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement, issuing a statement earlier this month in which she declared that she would not impose a curfew on those protesting the death of George Floyd.

“Let me be clear: The City of Olympia supports the peaceful protests that highlight the racial injustices black people continue to endure at the hands of police in the United States.”

The city, Selby asserted, was “not without sin in this matter.” She pointed to the well-off condition of neighborhoods such as her own as a sign that Olympia needs to be more “welcoming” of the city’s “diverse” citizens:

We are a predominantly white community next to communities that are far more diverse. That tells us that we are not, we have not been as welcoming and nurturing to communities of color as we’d like to think. The light switched on in America by Mr. Floyd’s murder shines glaringly on Olympia, as well.

After leaving the mayor’s neighborhood on Friday night, the BLM mob headed back downtown, where they vandalized several businesses. An Olympia police lieutenant reported that there was so much vandalism that the police wouldn’t have all the reports complete for days.

Nevertheless, Olympia police refused to intervene with the destruction, only hanging onto the periphery on patrol vehicles and bikes but not getting close to the marchers.

Later on, a fight broke out after a member of the “peacekeepers” tried to intervene while the BLM group burned an American flag from the Olympia Inn. The man who tried to rescue the flag was seen on the ground and his companions tried to assist him.

The mayor said she feels sorry for her neighbors, a number of whom are families with young children who now fear the vandals will continue coming to the area.

“People have so little grace for each other right now. We need to have more grace,” Selby said.

In an even more extreme example of hypocrisy, veteran NBA reporter Chris Palmer showed his support for BLM’s extremism when he tweeted out a photo of a burning building with the caption “Burn that sh*t down. Burn it all down.”

Later, however, he changed his tune when agitators showed up in his neighborhood:

They just attacked our sister community down the street. It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. They destroyed a Starbucks and are now in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live.

Limousine liberals don’t like living with the consequences of their politics. Unfortunately, their eleventh-hour epiphanies are often too little, too late.

 

NEW YORK CITY COUNCIL SEEKS TO CUT $1 BILLION FROM POLICE BUDGET

BY WARREN MASS

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/crime/item/36024-new-york-city-council-seeks-to-cut-1-billion-from-police-budget;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The New York City Council wants to cut $1 billion from the budget of the New York Police Department (NYPD). The proposal to slash the police budget was unveiled on June 12 in a joint statement from several Council members, including the speaker.

Though the statement was very likely motivated by the anti-police protests that have occurred nationwide — including in New York City — following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer, it avoided referring to the violent nature of the protests. It described the protests as “an outpouring of New Yorkers demanding change,” as if those demands consisted of concerned citizens writing letters to or calling their elected officials. Instead, noted a Fox New report on May 28 (“George Floyd protests in NYC turn violent: Officers punched, pelted, more than 40 people arrested”): “The NYPD told Fox News that multiple officers sustained injuries, including one who was struck in the head with a garbage can and another who was punched in the face.”

“In total, the FDNY confirmed to Fox News four police officers were injured and transported to nearby hospitals.”

Even though the City Council’s statement was unquestionably motivated by the violent protests, it was worded in such a way as to make it seem like a proposal based on economics and frugality, and only referred to the protests obliquely. It read, in part,

We believe that we can and should work to get to $1 billion in cuts to New York City’s police spending in the Fiscal 2021 budget, an unprecedented reduction that would not only limit the scope of the NYPD, but also show our commitment towards moving away from the failed policing policies of the past….

This is possible: We have identified savings that would cut over $1 billion dollars, including reducing uniform headcount through attrition, cutting overtime, shifting responsibilities away from the NYPD, finding efficiencies and savings in OTPS spending, and lowering associated fringe expenses. As we do this, we must prioritize the most impacted communities and hear their demands and needs across all areas during this budget process. This should be a deliberative and good faith discussion of the best path forward for New York City.

Our budget must reflect the reality that policing needs fundamental reform. Over the last few weeks, we have seen an outpouring of New Yorkers demanding change from their leaders. It is our job to listen — and to act. We will not let this moment pass, and we will fight for the budget they deserve.

The City Council’s statement mirrors a statement made by Mayor Bill de Blasio on June 7, in which he said that he would redirect a percentage of the NYPD’s $6 billion budget toward social programs.

“We’re committed to seeing a shift of funding to youth services, to social services, that will happen literally in the course of the next three weeks, but I’m not going to go into detail because it is subject to negotiation and we want to figure out what makes sense,” said de Blasio.

NATIONALIZING & GLOBALIZING THE POLICE~BEHIND THE DEEP STATE

In this episode of Behind The Deep State, host Alex Newman explains how and why the establishment is trying to demonize local police and sheriffs that are accountable to their local communities. One of the goals of this unrest is to nationalize and globalize American law enforcement to pave the way for tyranny, as proven by their own documents and statements. Obama and the UN were both open about the goals.

ATLANTA BURNING: CHAOS, ARSON FOLLOW POLICE SHOOTING OF RAYSHARD BROOKS

BY LLOYD BILLINGSLEY

SEE: https://cms.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/06/atlanta-burning-lloyd-billingsley;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Atlanta was still smoldering Sunday from riots following the police shooting of Rayshard Brooks on Friday. The 27-year-old African American had fallen asleep and his car was blocking the drive-thru lane at a Wendy’ restaurant. Brooks failed a sobriety test and according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, “during the arrest, the male subject resisted and a struggle ensued.”

As surveillance video revealed, “during a physical struggle with officers, Brooks obtained one of the officer’s Tasers and began to flee from the scene.  Officers pursued Brooks on foot and during the chase, Brooks turned and pointed the Taser at the officer.  The officer fired his weapon, striking Brooks,” who died after surgery at a local hospital. The police bodycam video captured part of the struggle.

Rioters torched the Wendy’s restaurant, blocked Interstate 85, and painted “Defund the Police” on Atlanta police headquarters, where police chief Erika Shields resigned. Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a possible running mate for Joe Biden, told reporters, “I do not believe that this was a justified use of deadly force.” The city fired officer Garrett Rolfe and placed officer Devin Brosnan on administrative duty.

“I am confident GBI Director Vic Reynolds and his team will follow the facts to ensure justice is served,” tweeted Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp. Stacey Abrams, who lost to Kemp in 2018 and is being touted as a running mate for Joe Biden, tweeted,  “The killing of Rashard Brooks in Atlanta last night demands we severely restrict the use of deadly force. . . sleeping in a drive-thru must not end in death.” Harder to find were statements by prominent Democrats criticizing violent rioters and citing accurate information on police shootings.

According to Larry Elder, citing a Washington Post database, “last year, there were nine unarmed black people killed by law enforcement,” and “nineteen unarmed white people.” Police killed in the line of duty also outnumber unarmed blacks killed by police.

As the FBI reports, “89 law enforcement officers were killed in line-of-duty incidents in 2019” and of those, “48 officers died as a result of felonious acts.” Forty-five of the slain officers were male, three were female, 40 were white and seven black. Six of the slain officers were conducting traffic stops and nine involved in tactical situations.

Five police officers were slain in “unprovoked attacks” and four were responding to crimes in progress. Three police officers were slain while assisting other officers, three were involved in vehicular pursuits and two were “ambushed,” victims of entrapment and premeditation.

“Offenders used firearms to kill 44 of the 48 victim officers,” the FBI reports, and of the 44 officers killed by firearms, 34 were slain with handguns, seven with rifles and one with a shotgun. In addition, “four officers were killed with vehicles used as weapons.”

If the killings were caught on video, few if any have circulated on social media. By all indications, none prompted demonstrations on behalf of the slain officers and against the criminals who had taken their lives. Likewise, the 18 murders in Chicago on May 31 alone, with victims including African American college student Keishanay Bolden, have not prompted widespread protests from groups such as Black Lives Matter.

On Saturday, Hawk Newsome, New York chairman of Black Lives Matter, took aim at the African American Val Demings, also on Joe Biden’s list for a running mate.  “Joe Biden would be an idiot to put her on his ticket. People are already on the fence about him,” Newsome told the New York Post. “When black people become police officers, they are no longer black. They are blue. And I have been told this by numerous officers.”

Demings rose through the ranks and in 2007 became chief of police in Jacksonville, Florida.  Demings defended the Department from charges that, “rogue cops” operated with impunity. “Looking for a negative story in a police department is like looking for a prayer at church,” Demings wrote. “I believe a reasonable person also understands that a few seconds (even on video) rarely capture the entire set of circumstances.” The VP prospect also encourages young Americans, “no matter the color of their skin or how much money they or their parents have or where they live in this country,” to “live the American dream.”

For Black Lives Matter’s Hawk Newsome, Demings is “no longer black.” In similar style, Joe Biden recently told radio host Charlamagne tha God, “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

That came as a surprise to Sen. Tim Scott, black for 54 years. On Sunday the South Carolina Republican said the situation with Rayshard Brooks, was “a far less clear one than the ones that we saw with George Floyd and several other ones around the country.” Outcomes with law enforcement “seem to have a racial component,” Scott said, but “most of us don’t really understand the definition of systemic racism.”

On Sunday, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard told reporters Rayshard Brooks “did not seem to present any kind of threat to anyone, and so the fact that it would escalate to his death just seems unreasonable.” The decision whether to bring charges could come on Wednesday.

LEFTIST TYRANTS OCCUPY SEATTLE NEIGHBORHOOD

★★★ A NEW CONSERVATIVE AGE IS RISING ★★★

Seattle’s ANTIFASTAN is a HUMILIATING DISASTER for DEMOCRATS! In this video, we’re going to look at how the left’s love affair with the new ‘Autonomous Zone’ in Seattle has not only become a laughing stock for most Americans but demonstrates precisely why the left, in the end, is ultimately only destroying themselves and guaranteeing Republican dominance for decades; you’re not going to want to miss this!

Welcome to the Revolution's "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone”

BY JOSEPH KLEIN

SEE: https://cms.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/06/leftist-tyrants-occupy-seattle-neighborhood-joseph-klein;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The Seattle Police Department decided to abandon one of their precincts in an effort to placate protesters after reportedly receiving threats that there would be attempts to burn it down. The leftists who seized the surrounding blocks of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood renamed it the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” The Seattle Police Department in the “liberated” zone was renamed the “Seattle People Department.” The radical occupiers issued their ultimatums entitled “THE DEMANDS OF THE COLLECTIVE BLACK VOICES AT FREE CAPITOL HILL TO THE GOVERNMENT OF SEATTLE, WASHINGTON.” They referred to the Seattle Police Department as a “terrorist cell.” A prominent Seattle neighborhood has surrendered to anarchy and lawlessness.

Here are a few highlights from the occupiers’ set of demands, which they say must be met before they consider ending their occupation:

·         “The Seattle Police Department and attached court system are beyond reform. We do not request reform, we demand abolition.” To eliminate any doubt, the “liberators” said they are demanding the elimination of “100% of funding.” 

·         “We demand a retrial of all People in Color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crime, by a jury of their peers in their community.”

·         “We demand the abolition of imprisonment, generally speaking, but especially the abolition of both youth prisons and privately-owned, for-profit prisons.”

·         “We demand in replacement of the current criminal justice system the creation of restorative/transformative accountability programs as a replacement for imprisonment.” 

·         “We demand autonomy be given to the people to create localized anti-crime systems.”

·         “We demand free college for the people of the state of Washington, due to the overwhelming effect that education has on economic success, and the correlated overwhelming impact of poverty on people of color, as a form of reparations for the treatment of Black people in this state and country.”

·         “We demand the hospitals and care facilities of Seattle employ black doctors and nurses specifically to help care for black patients.” In other words, racially segregated health care.

One of the occupiers intimidated a local Fox News affiliate reporter and a photographer trying to capture images of what was going on in the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Between curses, he yelled “Don’t let them get an inch of space” and “You ain’t getting no shots.”

A self-described “anarchist. abolish whiteness, capitalism, and civilization” eyewitness described the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone as “an area where state authority has been consciously rejected.” She added that “the police have been pushed out, and people are free to self-manage.”

Assistant Police Chief Deanna Nolette said that she had heard “anecdotally of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area,” which she described as “extortion.” There have also been reports of "citizen checkpoints" being set up in the area. Local rapper Raz Simone, reportedly one of the leaders of the occupiers, denied that there was any extortion. This is the same guy who, armed with an AK-47 and a pistol, has taken it upon himself to provide his own brand of unaccountable security for the “people.”

President Trump tweeted, “Radical Left Governor  @JayInslee and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game.”

Seattle’s mayor, Jenny Durkan, apparently thinks it is a game. Instead of regaining control of her own city from the anarchists, Durkan responded, “Make us all safe. Go back to your bunker. #BlackLivesMatter.” Evidently, Durkan is not as concerned about protecting the lives of everyone else. Washington state Governor Jay Inslee tweeted, “A man who is totally incapable of governing should stay out of Washington state’s business.” This governor has been so clueless about developments in his own state that on June 10th he responded “that’s news to me” to a question about the occupied “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” in Washington state’s largest city.

Socialist Alternative Seattle councilwoman Kshama Sawant has been encouraging the anarchists. She declared, for example, that the takeover was a “victory” against “the militarized police force of the political establishment and the capitalist state.”

The lunatics are taking over the asylum, with Seattle in the vanguard. And the lunacy is spreading. Areas of Portland Oregon may become the next target for anarchists to occupy and build their own autonomous zone.

Calls are mounting around the country to defund the police. Minneapolis is already beginning down that path. "We committed to dismantling policing as we know it in the city of Minneapolis and to rebuild with our community a new model of public safety that actually keeps our community safe," Council President Lisa Bender told CNN. When she was asked who should a person call if someone broke into that person's home, Bender replied, “yes, I mean I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know ⁠— and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”

"Black Lives Matter means defund the police," the Washington D.C. branch of Black Lives Matter proclaimed. Not surprisingly Democrat-Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on board with defunding the police. Many of her House Democrat colleagues, on the other hand, tried to avoid the issue for the moment by proposing sweeping changes in policing methods and calling for the diversion of some funds allocated for the police to social programs. The Democratic presumptive nominee for president Joe Biden claimed that he is opposed to defunding the police. He is trying to avoid as long as he can offending the many mainstream Americans concerned about their safety who support some sensible police reform but not abolition of the police. However, the progressive base of the Democratic Party will continue to move Biden and the party’s congressional leadership towards the extreme position of police defunding. They already have moved the party leftward on such issues as Medicare-for-All, free college tuition, and the Green New Deal.

When Democrats in the Senate had the chance to go on record opposing calls to defund the police, Senate Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer balked. Schumer decided on their behalf to block a resolution introduced on June 10th by Republican Senator Tom Cotton that called for justice for George Floyd while also opposing efforts to defund the police.

The non-binding resolution, which required unanimous consent to pass, acknowledged that “the United States has a troubled history of racism that includes slavery, the terror of lynch mobs, segregation, and Jim Crow, and that history leaves the United States with important work to accomplish.” It called Floyd's death at the hands of Derek Chauvin, the now-former Minneapolis police officer who is under arrest for murder, a "horrific act that violated the public trust and was inconsistent with the values and conduct expected of law enforcement officers." It added that "good law enforcement cannot exist without accountability and justice."

At the same time, however, the resolution urged against throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It stated that "defunding the police would leave police departments understaffed and undertrained, while also increasing the risk of violent crime to the communities of the United States." This should be a non-controversial statement for legislators to make in any sane civilized society. But it is too controversial for cowardly Schumer and his Democrat flock. They are too afraid of offending their party’s progressive base.

America’s house is divided between the majority who believe our constitutional republic is built on a strong foundation of ordered liberty worth preserving and a militant minority who believe it is built on a rotten foundation that must be completely dismantled. We can only hope that reason will prevail and America will be able to avoid another civil war.

 

FACEBOOK SAYS PAGE CELEBRATING “DEAD COPS” DOESN’T VIOLATE ITS COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Facebook has refused to remove a page celebrating “dead cops,” saying that it does not violate their community standards.

The page is titled The Only Good Cops Are Dead Cops and openly incites violence against police officers.

However, when it was reported to Facebook moderators, they reviewed the page and said that although it may be “offensive,” it doesn’t violate any specific community standards.

However, half a dozen other 500 Mom Strong parody pages set up by LGBT activists were left untouched.

“When I asked them about the half dozen other fake 500 Mom Strong pages that were put up by drag queens [and] used to parody 500 Mom Strong, I received no answer and the pages are still active,” said founder Anna Hall Bohach.

“There is also a fake profile, created by drag queens, using my name and information that has been reported multiple times by my friends and me that Facebook refuses to remove. I asked the Facebook representative about it and I still have yet to receive an answer,” she added.

President Trump issued a demand for Democratic controlled Seattle to be brought back under order immediately, as Antifa anarchists claimed control of a six-block zone and a police station.

“Radical Left Governor [of Washington, Jay Inslee] and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before,” Trump tweeted late on Wednesday.

“Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stooped [sic] IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!'” he continued.

SEATTLE BLACK LIVES MATTER MAKE SIX BLOCK “COP FREE” AUTONOMOUS ZONE AFTER POLICE RETREAT

BY LUIS MIGUEL

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/crime/item/35974-seattle-blm-make-cop-free-autonomous-zone-after-police-retreat;

Left-wing insurgents riding the racial unrest resulting from the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis Police Department Officer have created a six-block “cop-free” zone in Seattle’s downtown, which they are governing as an autonomous area following the withdrawal of law enforcement.

Seattle police seemingly abandoned and boarded up the East Precinct Building on Monday night, making room for the crowd of agitators to put up barricades as a border for what they are calling the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” Some of the barricades bear phrases such as “You are now leaving the USA,” “Welcome to Free Cap Hill,” and “No Cops Allowed.”

I’m outside of the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct for @townhallcom. Police have pulled out of the area and protesters have set up barricades in the streets. They have declared it a “Cop Free Zone.”

Some posts on social media by individuals allegedly involved appeared to show that the rioters are even soliciting those within the “cop-free zone” who own firearms to serve as armed guards to prevent police from entering.

On Tuesday night, hundreds of the individuals involved with the unrest stormed Seattle’s City Hall to demand that Mayor Jenny Durkan either defund the city’s police department or resign.

And after over an hour inside City Hall, protesters are headed out and chanting “Defund SPD” as they leave.

At the site of the protest, District 3 representative and longtime Durkan critic Kshama Sawant declared, “What we are seeing now is an uprising. A rebellion of young people. Not just nationwide but globally.”

Making her case for the mayor’s removal, Sawant said,

Two years ago, there was a police contract up for the vote. It was a bad contract. It was a racist contract. It was going to roll back the limited accountability measures that were hard fought for by community members. And the community spoke with one voice and pleaded — pleaded — with Mayor Durkan and the City Council, “Please vote no.” What do you think happened?

I was the only “no” vote on that contract. We have to remember that what built the movement is not people who are in power that may look like you or me. But it is people who have shown through their actions that they are in solidarity with ordinary people in marginalized communities.

Capitol Hill Seattle Blog reported, “Citywide representative Teresa Mosqueda, who attended Saturday night’s demonstration on Capitol Hill with other elected officials, joined Sawant in this call Monday, saying that Durkan should ‘ask herself if she’s the right leader and resign.’”

Durkan’s office responded that she remains committed to making “actual steps on policing” and other reform measures.

“As the person who originally investigated the Seattle Police Department for the unconstitutional use of force, Mayor Durkan believes that SPD can lead the nation on continued reforms and accountability, but knows this week has eroded trust at a time when trust is most crucial,” Durkan’s statement read.

The mayor banned the use of tear gas by police on Friday, but activists say the move is far from enough.

While Seattle police say they are still responding to 911 calls, the department has virtually abandoned the area after more than a week of clashes with rioters, during which authorities used blast balls, pepper spray, tear gas, and flash bangs to counter the glass bottles, rocks, and “explosives” hurled at them from the crowd.

Police Chief Carmen Best said her officers would take a different approach to law enforcement going forward.

The happenings in Seattle reveal the true nature and ends of the Marxist riots taking place under the guise of “racial equality.” They have nothing to do with George Floyd and everything to do with destroying the existing social order.

Those who wonder what will happen if localities throughout the country follow through with the demands to “dismantle” and “defund” the police should look no further than Seattle.

While the proponents of such measures, including the Democrat members of the Minneapolis city council, would have us believe that eliminating police would result in a utopian paradise in which social workers peacefully resolve every disturbance, the true consequences of such policies are, in fact, what we are witnessing in the Emerald City.

A desire for civil order is in our human nature. A lack of police creates a vacuum that must and will be filled by something. In Seattle’s East Precinct, that “something” is armed Antifa militants.

By the time the citizens receiving these Marxist revolutionaries as saviors realize that their new overlords are far less understanding than the police they ran out, it may be too late to go back.

 

SENATE REPUBLICANS WANT TO WORK WITH DEMOCRATS ON “POLICE REFORM”

BY LUIS MIGUEL

Is bipartisanship something to be lauded when it’s a bipartisan betrayal of the Constitution? 

Democrat and Republican leaders on the Senate Judiciary Committee appear to have found common ground on the issue of police reform as cities across the nation are rocked by protests, riots, and vandalism in response to the death of George Floyd.

While Senate leadership from both sides of the aisle deny they want to defund police — the demand being made by Black Lives Matter and related groups — they say they want to work together to involve the federal government in banning certain police activities.

The Judiciary Committee on Tuesday announced that they will take a closer look at police conduct at a June 16 hearing titled “Police Use of Force and Community Relations.”

Committee Chairman Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) both addressed the “police reform” issue on Tuesday, following Democrats’ unveiling of a bill designed to restrict local police departments’ response to crime.

“It sounds like a good thing,” Graham told reporters in response to a ban on chokeholds and similar techniques. 

“I think a ban on chokeholds is appropriate,” Feinstein said earlier.

Both leaders claimed to be against actually defunding police. 

“I just don’t believe in that as an answer — that you take money from a department. It would have to be crippled to have effect,” Feinstein said on the matter.

Graham echoed the California Democrats’ position: “I think it’s just affected people, the cumulative effect of it all,” he said. “People responding that we can do better — not defunding the police, but reforming the police is something we can manage.”

Graham’s statement sounds nice on paper: It’s the typical appeasement language that the Republican establishment has down to a “T.” Who could object to a statement that so delicately plays to the sensibilities of both sides? Of course we won’t defund the police; that would be irresponsible! But reforming the police...

A casual observer might say Graham and Feinstein are being reasonable. But the question for constitutionalists to ask is, why is the Senate Judiciary Committee talking about any kind of action on police in the first place?

Nowhere in Article 1 of the Constitution is Congress given the power to decide on the structure or practices of local law enforcement. Of course, proponents of having the federal government step in on local policing issues will cite a litany of federal laws and statutes passed over the years that do just that. And they’re likely to find a host of activist judges more than willing to use such precedent as grounds for even more federal involvement.

But lest we forget, the Constitution is much more clear than generations of establishment lawyers and legal scholars make it out to be: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Thus reads the 10th Amendment in language so direct there’s no room for misunderstanding (though that’s never stopped statists with a penchant for introducing ambiguity to the most simple and straightforward texts). The Constitution does not delegate the federal government power to control local law enforcement. Therefore, that power rightly belongs to states, counties, and cities.

Allowing Congress to pass “police reform,” as innocuous as the phrase may sound, is a slower way of getting to the global elites’ goal of a national police force than the abrupt tactic of defunding and dismantling local police outright; but it is a path toward the same end nonetheless. 

The role of the Lindsey Grahams has always been one of controlled opposition. “Moderates,” trying to appear bipartisan, constantly try to meet progressives halfway. But taking half-steps to Hell will still get you there eventually. The Left knows they usually won’t be able to accomplish all they want in one battle. So they get the moderates to meet them halfway today. Tomorrow, they get the other half.

A true constitutionalist would refuse to cede at all on questions of constitutional integrity. He would say “This is a matter for the states” and leave the debate at that — not schedule a hearing.

Locally controlled police are essential to ensuring our freedom. From gun confiscation to lockdowns to forced vaccinations, the Deep Staters know they need police to enforce the tyrannical policies they seek. But they need police they can control uniformly throughout the country — police who take orders from them directly rather than from every individual city or county.

If bipartisan appeasers such as Lindsay Graham are the best Republican leadership has to offer, it’s time for new leadership.


 

MERIDIAN, IDAHO MOTHER ARRESTED FOR DEFYING MAYOR’S CLOSURE: ARRANGED KIDS’ “PLAY DATE” WITH OTHER FAMILIES AT PUBLIC PARK PLAYGROUND; AMMON BUNDY TAKES PART IN PROTESTS OUTSIDE CITY MUNICIPAL BUILDING & COP’S HOUSE

SEE: https://supportsarabrady.com/

Sara Brady with kids

Sara's Story

On April 21st,  Sara Brady, mother of four, took two of her children to the park for a playdate with several other moms and their children. Shortly after arriving, three police officers arrived and stated that the playground was closed. Apparently the rest of the park, which included basketball courts, volleyball courts, picnic areas and benches, etc. were still open! All children and moms were ordered to leave the playground and congregate on the grass where they would have been in closer proximity and in violation of Idaho’s order to social isolate!

Sara attempted to question the officer, who is a supervisor, about what he was ordering everyone to do. Yet Sara was told to get off the bark and the officer threatened to arrest her.  When Sara continued to ask questions this was taken as a refusal to leave the park.  The officer then began counting down to her, like a child, and eventually arrested Sara for “trespassing” in a public park.

Since then, Sara’s case has been assigned to the Idaho Attorney General’s Office, who has been adamant that Idaho’s lockdown orders are constitutional.

Why? Why is the Attorney General of Idaho, backed by all the resources of the state, going after a mom for taking her children to the park, when:

– No other moms were arrested for being on the bark of the playground that day, and children were back on the playground within 30 minutes of Sara’s arrest?

– The park she took her kids to was “opened” back up, a mere three weeks later? 

– The state’s money could be better spent helping those who lost their jobs due to the Governor’s shut-down orders?

– Jails around the country are releasing dangerous criminals?

Sara brady mug shot

HOW LONG DO WE TOLERATE THIS GOVERNMENT OVERREACH?

HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO LET THE GOVERNMENT TRAMPLE ON OUR RIGHTS IN THE NAME OF SAFETY AND PROTECTION?

Sara is facing six months in jail and/or $1000 fine. A jury trial to fight this violation of rights is going to cost $30,000-$50,000.

Please consider making a donation to help cover Sara’s costs with fighting an overreaching government with endless pockets because they use your tax dollars to prosecute people who decide enough is enough and stand up for their rights!

Thank you for your support.

NEW YORK & CALIFORNIA FREED THOUSANDS OF CRIMINALS & THE RIOTS BEGAN

NEW YORK & CALIFORNIA FREED THOUSANDS OF CRIMINALS & THE RIOTS BEGAN

Free the criminals. Organize riots. Watch cities burn. Repeat.

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

SEE: https://cms.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/06/new-york-and-california-freed-thousands-criminals-daniel-greenfield;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

New York City released over 2,650  criminals from prison to protect them from the pandemic. But they didn’t stay home or wash their hands. They went back to their old jobs and 100 of them accounted for 190 arrests for crimes like burglary and robbery. A rapist was released and he went back to raping.

One of the freed criminals was responsible for 18 burglaries at closed eateries. And when he was arrested, the end of bail meant that he was set loose. This looting was going on long before the riots.

Now  as the rioters and looters rule the streets of Manhattan, when the police manage to arrest them, they have to quickly let them go.

“When it comes to a burglary, a commercial store, which is looting, they’re back out,” Chief Terrence Monahan said. “Because of bail reform, you’re back out on the street the next day. You cannot be held on any sort of bail.”

Of the 650 thugs arrested, almost all will be released back on the street to riot and loot again.

Los Angeles County released about 5,000 criminals accounting for around a third of imprisoned criminals. And with no bail, arrested criminals were set loose and then arrested again. In the first 30 days of the experiment, 213 criminals were rearrested again after being put back on the street.

Sacramento County’s jail population fell 30%, Orange County’s prison numbers dropped by 45%, Detroit’s jail population dropped by 40%, Philadelphia’s by 17%, and Denver’s by 41%. Massachusetts freed 1,000 criminals while Illinois freed around 4,000. Dallas released 1,000 criminals and Hennepin County, the home of the riots that went on to sweep major cities, reduced its prison population by 44%.

What impact did the hundreds of released criminals have on kickstarting the riots?

It’s no coincidence that some of the areas hardest hit by the rioting and the looting had also opened up their prisons to protect inmates from contracting the coronavirus. Despite apocalyptic predictions from policymakers and the media, there were no mass deaths in prisons or ICE detention facilities. But the critical mass of criminals out on the street left police in major cities hopelessly outnumbered.

That was all part of the plan.

While not all the criminals returned to their trade, even those who wanted to go straight had few jobs waiting for them in locked down cities and states that were already suffering from massive unemployment and where the businesses that might have employed them had been shut down.

Not all of the released criminals returned to crime, but the riots provided the perfect opportunity.

Even before the pandemic, state and federal pro-crime legislation pushed by lefties and libertarians had dramatically cut the numbers of criminals being safely held behind bars. New York City’s prison population had dropped from over 25,000 in 2016 to just under 20,000 in 2019. The end of bail meant that criminals never even bothering showing up for trial. And Mayor Bill de Blasio tried to bribe them to come to court with free movie tickets and gift cards. Even before the riots, there had been violent mob attacks on NYPD officers. The attacks have just reached a critical mass in the Black Lives Matter riots.

Anyone who was closely reading the crime numbers could have predicted the mass looting outbreak.

With massive numbers of criminals on the loose, major crimes rose 12%. Car thefts shot up 65%, robberies went up by 25%, and burglaries rose by 22%.

Burglaries of businesses in New York City had shot up 75% by April.

This was slow-motion looting. If you understand that then what happened in Manhattan with organized gangs targeting stores, smashing and grabbing their way through countless businesses, falls into place. The mass looting was not a shocking new development, it was just the existing criminals going public.

The Black Lives Matter riots provided cover for Antifa violence and for organized criminal gangs and individual opportunistic looters, many of whom had been released because of leftist activism.

Free the criminals. Organize riots. Watch cities burn.

In 2006, California had over 165,000 criminals safely locked away. By 2017, the state was down to 115,000 criminals, in part due to an unconstitutional Supreme Court decision ordering the state to release tens of thousands of criminals into the street. Statewide crime rates slowly began ticking up.

Crime rates jumped in 2012, after the Supreme Court’s unconstitutional ruling, and in 2015, after George Soros’ Proposition 47: Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act. The name meant the exact opposite of what it actually did, effectively legalizing retail theft. The more discreet version of looting.

After each mass jailbreak, crime went up.

Violent crimes shot up from 151,425 before Proposition 47, to 178,553 in 2017. Property crime rates were where the real action was, not only rising, but defying nationwide downward trends.

While the rioters cry for more pro-crime measures, demanding the defunding of the police, less prosecution, and more criminals freed from prison, that’s exactly what caused the riots.

New York and California aren’t being devastated because of mass public outrage, but because they freed the criminals who are tearing New York City and Los Angeles apart. And they want the rest of the country to follow them down the same rabbit hole until there isn’t a single safe place left in America.

The mass riots and looting are the direct result of freeing thousands of criminals while crippling law enforcement and the justice system. Past upticks in crime rates had been hidden with statistical games and by tainting the system from the bottom up, by defining crime reporting down at the precinct level, to the top, refusing to bring charges against criminals or pleading them down to next to nothing.

Even as people felt less safe, the media and the authorities kept telling them that crime was falling.

The riots tore apart that lie. No one feels safe after watching mobs ransack neighborhoods and assault police. But the media and the authorities have replaced that lie with another lie, falsely portraying the riots as a mass uprising against racism, when they’re really a plot by a small group of radicals and racists, while freed career criminals are doing much of the work of actually wrecking the cities.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa have touched off the riots and looting to overwhelm police forces. And it’s working. Demoralized cops are given a bad choice between arresting motivated rioters or chasing down looters, while knowing that everyone they arrest will out by the next day so that it really doesn’t matter.

The riot endgame will move the war to the next stage with more mass releases of criminals, more crippled police forces, and even less prosecutions. And the next wave of riots will be even worse. There will be another viral video, more manufactured outrage, and even more devastating riots. Each set of riots will include demands that if met will lead to worse riots in the next stage of the conflict.

This is the same old playbook that the Left has used effectively for well over a century.

The myth of law enforcement racism is being used to dismantle police forces and open up the prisons. The released criminals become witting or unwitting shock troops for violent confrontations that tear apart society and build up the political power of the radicals who can turn the violence on or off.

There is only one way forward. Conservatives must work to reverse the pro-crime policies of leftists and libertarians. As the nation experiences curfews and people huddle in their homes, there is no way to escape the truth that if we don’t lock up the criminals rampaging in the street, we will be the ones in jail.

Right now, Black Lives Matter and Antifa, and more importantly their backers from the Democrat Party to the media to academia, are holding a gun to the head of the United States of America. But the worst part of it is that we gave them the gun and put the bullets in it when we began freeing criminals.

Law and order is the only way to take the gun away. Locking up the criminals disarms the Left.

In this explosive new video, Candace Owens explains why she does not support George Floyd and refuses to see him as a secular saint. She takes this stand while making it clear that it is obviously wrong how Floyd was killed by the police and that she hopes that Officer Derek Chauvin gets the justice he deserves — just as she hopes Floyd’s family gets the justice they deserve through Chauvin’s punishment.

Above all, Candace issues a robust and stirring warning to her fellow black Americans about the grave mistake of turning Floyd into a shining martyr. In her profound remarks, Candace dares to break numerous taboos and tell piercing truths that the leftist guardians of acceptable opinion don’t want told.

Candace’s bold stance in these contentious times distinguishes her as one of the most courageous truth-tellers — and freedom fighters — of our time. Frontpage commends her for that.

George Floyd’s Memorial-A travesty just like the protests in his behalf.
EXCERPT:
“In a twisted way it is fitting that the most destructive week for America in living memory should be topped off by a memorial featuring the nation’s chief racial arsonist Al Sharpton. The memorial remembered pieces of the life of George Floyd who was brutally killed by a policeman pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck until he shut off the handcuffed man’s air supply and he died. Not the least unexpectedly, the malevolent Sharpton used the platform the mourners provided to stoke the fires of racial hatred, attacking all of white America because black America’s problems and miseries stemmed from the fact that “for 401 years white America has had its knees on our necks” – or words to that effect.”
“That this monstrous sham perpetrated on the American people and used as an excuse to burn American cities should be capped off by an incendiary racist diatribe at George Floyd’s memorial was as fitting as it is tragic.”

The 66-year-old founder of the Guardian Angels organization, Curtis Sliwa and a newly-joined member of the group were both attacked and injured this week while “on the job” protecting stores from George Floyd rioters and looters after the start of the 8 pm curfew.

Sliwa is a longtime law and order advocate whose top goal is to defend the community while maintaining order together with the members of his Guardian Angels team. They’re easy to spot with their red berets and jackets and although they all look like bikers, none of them are armed. They’ve patrolled the worst neighborhoods of the city and helped those in need since 1979, today in more than 130 cities across the United States and in places around the world as well.

But on Tuesday night, that rule about remaining unarmed led to Sliwa himself and a second member of the group — Aram Sabet, a newbie to the organization with only nine weeks under his belt — themselves becoming victims of some of the more vicious elements among the George Floyd rioters who have been staying out past curfew in New York City in order to trash and loot as many stores as possible.

“We were in SoHo working our way down Broadway when we heard about looters trying to get into a Footlocker, and we immediately ran to that location,” Sliwa told Fox News. That was around 8 pm, just as the curfew was starting.

Sabet told Eyewitness News7, “They literally surrounded us … with bats, hammers, crowbars, metal bats.” Eventually, Sliwa and his team managed to force the gang to drop the loot; they went up the street, vowing to be back later.

They were good to their word, returning two hours later having changed into all black clothing and wearing backpacks. They had also brought along another 100 thugs to help them as well.

About an hour later, they appeared again, and this time their mob had tripled to about 300 goons, most armed with hammers, lock cutters, claw hammers, metal bats, machetes, crowbars, and similar items.

Sliwa, who stood outside the store, said “They started swinging at us. But we were not going to let them get inside. We were slamming and jamming quite a few of them. They were throwing glass bottles filled with liquids as well as bricks and rocks.”

Sliwa’s group managed to hold out until NYPD forces arrived about an hour later. Both he and Sabet were then rushed to Bellevue Hospital in the heart of the city.

Sabet has a broken eye socket; he had forty-eight stitches with injuries to the eyebrow, left sinus shattered, a broken nose, a chipped tooth, and lost the sight in his left eye. Sliwa, who got hit with a ball hammer, has a linear fracture in his jaw.

Despite the injuries, Sliwa told reporters that he and his Angels weren’t deterred. “We train for these kinds of things. We won’t fold. We are defiant,” he said. “We want to make a difference in these neighborhoods.”

 

GEORGE FLOYD RIOTERS NOW USING PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY TERRORIST TACTICS IN AMERICA

GEORGE FLOYD RIOTERS NOW USING PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY TERRORIST TACTICS IN AMERICA

SEE: https://www.jewishpress.com/news/us-news/ny/george-floyd-rioters-now-using-palestinian-authority-terrorist-tactics-in-america/2020/06/01/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A great number of the George Floyd rioters across the United States have begun to use the same vicious tactics to attack their targets – primarily police officers and their vehicles – as Palestinian Authority terrorists use.

Washington DC: Secret Service Personnel Attacked
In Washington DC, more than 50 Secret Service personnel protecting the White House were hurt by Molotov cocktails hurled by rioters within the first two days of “protests” over the death of George Floyd during his arrest by a Minneapolis police officer.

Rioters succeeded in setting the White House Guard House ablaze on Sunday night.

More than 5,000 rioters hurled Molotov cocktails and other incendiary devices — including large live fireworks — towards the direction of the White House shortly after dark, in a manner similar to Palestinian Authority terrorists attacking Israelis in Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley.

NYPD Firebombed Two Consecutive Nights
In New York City, rioters employed precisely the same tactics for the same purpose.

Two sisters were arrested after hurling Molotov cocktail into an NYPD van with four police officers inside the vehicle.

Samantha Shader, 27, of Catskill, NY, has confessed to the attack; she is charged with attempted murder of a police officer, attempted arson, assault on a police officer, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment. Police said Samantha threw the firebomb through a rear window of the van, and while being arrested, allegedly bit an officer on the leg as they struggled to subdue her resistance.

Her sister, Darian Shader, 21, allegedly tried to block police from arresting Samantha and faces charges of resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration.

Civil rights attorney, scholar and law professor Jonathan Turley commented on his blog on Monday when discussing the incident, “The best defense would be to challenge either the allegation that she threw the device or that the device was actually explosive or flammable. A mental capacity defense is often hard to make out with there is preplanning or pre-construction of an explosive device.

“It is hard to imagine any prosecutor bargaining down this charge (ed. note: attempted murder) since, if true, there would have been four officers burned to death if the device actually went off. Unless the device did not contain a flammable or explosive liquid, Shader is looking at serious time if convicted. For a Class A felony, the maximum term is life imprisonment. Even a Class B felony includes up to 25 years in prison.”

In a second firebombing case, an Ivy League-educated New York attorney has been arrested for attacking NYPD police officers, again with a Molotov cocktail. Colinford Mattis, 32, was allegedly aided and abetted by another New York City attorney.

In addition to being an up-and-coming attorney at Pryor Cashman (currently on furlough since April due to the coronavirus situation) Mattis is also a member of Community Board 5 in East New York.

Urooj Rahman, 31, was admitted to the New York Bar in June 2019; she is accused of being the one who threw the firebomb, created from a Bud Light bottle stuffed with a rag, at an NYPD police cruiser parked outside the 88th Precinct station house in Fort Greene.

A photo was snapped with Rahman holding a black-and-white keffiyeh to her face, possibly to mask her identity, while preparing to hurl the firebomb out the passenger’s side window of the van in which she and her partner were riding early Saturday, May 30.

The attack was recorded by an NYPD surveillance camera, which showed Rahman lighting the fuse on the beer bottle and throwing it through a broken window. The explosion of the device inside the vehicle was also recorded, as was the couple’s attempt to escape.

Both Mattis and Rahman were pursued by police and caught shortly after they fled the scene in their van. The makings for a second Molotov cocktail were found in the back seat, as well as a gasoline container, according to the Department of Justice.

The FBI said in a statement: “Officers pursued the minivan and arrested Rahman and Mattis, who was the vehicle’s driver. The NYPD recovered several precursor items used to build Molotov Cocktails, including a lighter, a bottle filled with toilet paper and a liquid suspected to be gasoline in the vicinity of the passenger seat and a gasoline tank in the rear of the vehicle.”

Both Rahman and Mattis face federal charges of “causing damage by fire and explosives to a police vehicle.”

Each faces a minimum prison term of five years and a maximum sentence of 20 years, if convicted.

Palestinian Authority Terror Tactics – Why Now?
The use of Molotov cocktails and live fireworks by American rioters to attack police as a means of expressing “rage” — a vicious form of attack that up to this point was seen almost solely in attacks by Palestinian Authority terrorists against Israeli motorists, police and military personnel — is now suddenly spreading from coast to coast in violence under the banner of “Black Lives Matter,” leading to the question of where and when this idea was generated, and how its use has come into play.

The coordination of violence between the Black Lives Matter movement and ANTIFA is not yet clear; however, the results from the cooperation between the two on the streets of America from coast to coast is obvious. Cities have burned for nearly a week.

St. Louis Churches Reject Black Lives Matter’s Anti-Israel Message

“Black Lives Matter” has also long been associated with anti-Israel messaging and movements such as the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) economic war against Israel.

The “BLM” acronym was slathered in paint along with other forms of graffiti since the death of George Floyd, including such epithets as F—k Police, and in the case of synagogue buildings in Los Angeles, “Back to Palestine!”

How city authorities plan to deal with this new, upgraded level of violence and threat to their law enforcement personnel remains to be seen.
