Madison stacks deck against police

On that civilian police oversight apparatus, which was approved early this morning (09-02-2020) by the Madison Common Council:

The proposed ordinance creating the board requires that it have members from minority communities and members with experience in mental health, youth advocacy and substance abuse. At least one member is required to have an arrest or conviction record.
Half of the board’s members are required to be Black.

Retired UW law professor Ann of Althouse observes:

Explicit race discrimination is required in the composition of this board. The Black population of Madison (according to the 2010 census) is 7.3%, yet 50% of the board must be black. …. Did anyone agonize or tremble even slightly over the constitutionality of the explicit race discrimination or would any acknowledgment of this problem be a politically unacceptable display of white privilege?

Blaska’s Bottom LineWatch Freedom Inc., Urban Triage, and Amelia Royko Maurer’s Community Response Team flood the police monitor with a thousand paper cuts — all judged by a kangaroo court of cop haters. While Downtown Madison is boarded up by violent BLM/Resistance/BernieBois anarchists and high-speed shootouts in stolen cars roil the streets.

    “As A Middle Aged White Man I Fear For My Life — Every Time I Resist Arrest or Pull Out a Weapon On a Police Officer” 08/31/2020 From Facebook:

    Leonydus has 10 more examples, all in 2019, two of whom were women. All were white, all were unarmed, and all of whom were killed by police action. He has photos of almost every person killed.

    The point is not that the police use of deadly force was justified in each instance — in some it was not.

    The point is that police use of deadly force is situational and rarely “racist.” Plenty of white people die at the hands of police officers every year — justified and unjustified — but no one burns down buildings, loots businesses, and attacks the police over it.

    The cries of “racism” are just a rallying cry of a social cause unrelated to police activity. It’s always been about identity politics [and destroying our Republic] — the advocates have simply found a reservoir of “white guilt” that allows them to co-opt educated middle class liberal white voters.

    Racial discrimination is “Lefty Privilege”.

    I remember when discrimination was a good thing. Remember when Ricardo Montelban could discriminate his good taste for genuine Corinthian leather?

    But, today in 2020 with segregated black student unions, special snowflake safe spaces and PC free speech zones, it resembles the Jim Crow segregationist past of the Democrat Party embodied in Gov. George Wallace, Lester “Ax Handle” Maddox and Bull Connor, “Segregation. Now and forever.”

    So much Lefty hypocrisy, … such little time.

    Madison 2020 State of the City

    Since January 1 we have reached several landmarks.
    We set a monthly record for “shots fired” incidents in June.

    We then broke that record in July..Near the end of the month a celebration of life for a gang member who was rubbed out the week before, was disrupted by gunfire. Hundreds of shell casings recovered from many caliber weapons including an AK-47.

    Several dead black men that don’t seem to matter to anybody. No protests, no riots.

    An epidemic of car thefts, mostly by black teenagers. Many are stolen after they burgled the key fobs while victims slept.The stolen cars soon become the battlefield of choice as running gun battles between cars occur daily, right up until one of them kills an 11 year old girl.

    The city center has endured several riots that have made the downtown area a ghost town. A government building was firebombed, statues torn down, massive looting and burning on multiple nights.

    On September the 1st, the mayor declares that she has had enough. Action WILL be taken! The mayor and city council hold a marathon 9 hour meeting in order to ……..criticize, restrict and defund the police department. You’re welcome.

    Is this scarier yet ???

    “MADISON, Wis. — Madison police are asking the public to share “reasonable, achievable ideas” for how to keep teens out of future legal trouble after an initial arrest.”

    “Mike Hanson, a captain with the Madison Police Department’s South District, said in an online statement that the department needs to implement a new system “so these youth are NOT arrested eight to 10 times before they turn 17.”

    Mayhaps it will be productive, tho certainly smacks of capitulation. Why can’t these baby thugs get removed from society for a while?

          Police officer incidents are EXTREMELY RARE, conflated by the media and those who despise cops and law and order.

          This is the second time I’ve mentioned this, but you’ve YET to tell me your thoughts on the thousands of innocent BLACK police officers and civilian lives being lost because of gang-like crime.

          Why are you outraged by outlying incidents against Black people (in most cases the officers were justified but the haters don’t take time to learn the truth) but not the REGULAR destruction of Black lives within their own communities? This leads me to believe your issue is with cops and not about saving Black lives.

          As for the “p comment. That was said years ago under the belief that it was a PRIVATE conservation. Locker room talk. Nothing millions of other men haven’t said in the confines of privacy, including other politicians. He was talking about women who willingly ACCEPTED his advances, by the way.

          Not saying I like it, but it’s not the crime of the century. You know what IS despicable?

          -Defending a Hollywood mogul who you’ve got to know is assaulting women but you keep quiet anyway because hey, you might not get cast in a picture.
          -Using your power and authority over a young intern to extract sexual favors while in the OVAL OFFICE
          -Raping a colleague (allegedly)
          -Talking about your hairy legs in a swimming pool to a bunch of kids, and saying how they would stroke your hair legs.
          -Letting a colleague die a terrible death (drowning) because you want to save your own political career
          -Attacking a gay man (and others) who happens to be a Trump supporter.

          The media REGULARLY ignores the sins of Democratic politicians while conflating Trump’s. Most people are smart to see through it. Equally despicable are the phony #metooers who focus their rage on conservatives, but ignore accusations against Dems.

          I say that you’re a liar with full confidence because it is proven beyond a shadow of doubt that Donald Trump is the duly elected President of the United States of America and has been since November 2016. Anyone claiming otherwise at this point in time is a baldfaced liar. You are a liar.

          Paula Dent wrote, “He lost the general election by 3 million votes.”

          The popular vote is not the only part of how the President is elected, there is the Electoral College and that is what ultimately puts the President into office; the Donald Trump won the electoral college and is duly elected to the Office of the President of the United States. These election rules have been in place for over 200 years and they worked equally for all candidates. Now ignorant fools, like you, think you can ignore the Electoral College part of the election process because it didn’t work in favor of your candidate; you’re like a bunch of ignorant children throwing a fit because you didn’t get your way. You snowflakes need to get over your self and grow up.
