Madison’s War on Police is only heating up

Must keep repeating:
The Policy Werkes is mostly peaceful.
The Policy Werkes is mostly peaceful.
The Policy Werkes is mostly peaceful.

It is no accidental co-inky dink that Progressive Dane co-chair Brenda Konkel is coordinating the campaign to smear Ald. Paul Skidmore, the Common Council’s most dependable defender of our police. And that Madison WI’s Defund the Police campaign runs through her committee.

Chairman Konkel’s City of Madison Public Safety Review Committee expects to get the bandwagon rolling to Defund the Police in its on-line committee hearing 6 p.m. Thursday 09-24-2020. Tell Brenda what you think of Defunding Police here, for what it’s worth.

Hers is not a standing committee of the Common Council but will help set the stage for the mayor’s introduction on October 6 of the city operating budget. Freedom Inc. is one of the agencies that is almost guaranteed a seat on the Police Civilian Oversight Board. BLM affiliates are lined up and ready to pounce. Here was Monday’s training program:

Fck 12

Nothing says social justice like the F-bomb! (“12” is social justice warrior code  for police)

An on-line petition to defund police has garnered 5,148 signatures so far. Signer Dan Vogel writes “ACAB [All Cops Are Bad].” Lest you think that the “mostly peaceful” demonstrations are not rehearsed:

rehearsed demonstrations

This is your Freedom Inc. tax dollars at work

Coming soon to a neighborhood near you!

Big march scheduled Saturday 10-10-2020 at 10 am beginning at the Capitol on the State St. side, which organizers call “The Battlefield.” Figures to cover a lot of Madison because organizers pledge to walk 26.2 miles across the city to “Defund MPD and protect the integrity and power of the new Civilian Oversight Board and Independent Police Monitor as necessary steps to increased community control of police.” And, of course, “justice for Tony.”

Sorry, could not get the march route.

UPDATE: It’s starting. Tom Barrett wants to cut 120 police officers from murder-plagued Milwaukee. (Read & Weep.)

By how much do YOU think Mayor Satya will defund police?

    Chances are good that police will have their budget cut, just like other departments. That would be a mistake. Crime has increased, not decreased, and the police are needed now more than ever. Freedom Inc. is a radical organization that promotes violence. At yet, somehow, most of the city council and the mayor look up to them. This remains a mystery to me.

        Batman,

        This week one of the stations was replaying the TV movie “Helter Skelter” about the 1970’s Charles Manson and Tate-LaBianca murders.

        The female followers were hippies who would cry out “Pig” and “Oink” at cops. They were hippies who didn’t seem to have minds of their own, blindly following that psychopath’s “teachings,” and acted batS crazy.

        Murder part aside, do you see any similarities in mindset with today’s “Resistance”?

          Speaking of mental health issues did anyone else notice the curious tidbits in the news about BLM Bullhorn Bully? Released from jail because he’s back on his meds. Earlier this year some “therapist” ACTUALLY prescribed him to get involved in the Burn/Loot/Mayhem “movement” as some sort of bizarre treatment for his escalating mental health issues. This is the guy who threatened downtown business owners and customers, extorting free booze and food in exchange for him and his comrades not burning their businesses to the ground.

          WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. EFF.

          So much ridiculousness and Meek White Madison falls for it again and again!

          Who was the “therapist” prescribing joining a domestic terror group to a mentally ill young Black man??? Was this one of the “culturally responsive” Black- only organizations that gets millions of tax dollars from City of Madison and the State to provide “mental health” services???

          Who else is doing this? Tax dollars to “tear down” our city??

      Not that much of a mystery when you consider the leftist mind.

      They run on pure emotion, lie, manipulate, and manufacture facts, which is what children and teenagers do.

      Generally speaking, most of them appear to be misfits. I suspect many were bullied in school and/or neglected by their parents, and this “resistance” movement is their warped way of re-gaining control and getting back at the Establishment. I suspect there are also sociopaths in the mix.

    Crime needs to be attached to the City Council Member responsible for where the crime occurs. For example: Incident Report for Case #2020-352585.

    Details: A 69 year old Madison resident (Female) was leaving the McDonald’s restaurant on Regent St. A Black Male wearing all black clothing and a blue facemask asked to use the female’s phone. When she refused the male took her purse by force and fled in a stolen vehicle along with another Black Male wearing dark clothing.

    Madison Police observed the discarded black leather purse near the BP Gas Station on Speedway while attempting to catch up to the suspect vehicle. However, when MPD returned to the area the purse was missing.

    Does District 5 Alder Shiva Bidar have any comments on two criminals preying upon 69 year old women in her district? By the way, does the fact the criminals tossed the victims purse two blocks before passing the Midtown Police Department imply the strong arm thieves had well developed situational awareness of local law enforcement?

    I wonder if these people who want to defund the Police really know what role the Police play in todays society?

    Do they know that it is often the Police who are the first to arrive on the scene of a car accident? Are they aware that the Police often are the first to provide emergency medical attention to the victims of a car accident resulting in saving some of the victims of those accidents? Do they know that the Police are often on the scene of a gunshot incident that has left someone wounded? Do they know that often the Police can apply a tourniquet to keep someone from bleeding out before the EMT’s arrive? That they also provide CPR to a person having a heart attack before the EMT’s arrive?

    How long will these people want to wait for the Police to arrive at their emergency when all the Police can respond to are priority calls? As an aside: Brenda, good luck getting the Police to come to your emergency if you and the rest of the progressives defund the Police.

    Are they aware that if we defund the Police there will be less staff available to investigate crimes that have been committed which will allow the bad guys to declare open season on the citizens as they will have little fear in getting caught or being arrested as a result of follow through investigations from the Police?

    Finally, are they aware that in 2008 Vallejo California defunded their Police Department and the cut in the budget resulted in as the Washington Post article put it: “….a dramatic surge in officers’ use of deadly force.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/this-california-city-defunded-its-police-force-killings-by-officers-soared/2020/06/22/253eeddc-b198-11ea-856d-5054296735e5_story.html
