Tony Evers gets softened up

Who do you think you are?

Sī vīs pācem, parā bellum, the Roman philosopher advised. “If you want peace, prepare for war.” The philosopher of Stately Blaska Manor amends that advice: “If you want peace, put plenty of law enforcement boots on the ground.”

We’ve said before, Tony Evers is as responsible for burned-out Kenosha and Kyle Rittenhouse as the rioters who attacked the 17 year old that hot August night in 2020. It is good politics and commendable policy to lay that on Wisconsin’s governor now, a good 2½ months before the general election. Because the other precept practiced at the Werkes is this: It’s never too early to go negative. Of that, we are positive.

Democrats will howl, which means our Republican nominee for governor is over the target. The Marquette Law School poll confirms our gut feelings: crime will drive the election at all levels this November. Of voters responding to the poll released 08-17-22, crime concerns 88% — second only to inflation at a combined 94%. (How is “gun violence” a separate category?)

As we’ve been saying

Right off the bat, Gov. Evers blamed police. The day of the shooting, before getting the facts, Ever’s progressive knee jerked and out of his mouth came this:

Tonight, Jacob Blake was shot in the back multiple times, in broad daylight, in Kenosha, Wisconsin,” Evers said in the statement. … “While we do not have all of the details yet, what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country.” (More here.)

Attorney General Bill Barr: Evers dithered during the Kenosha insurrection.

Tony Evers still bad-mouths cops one year after Jacob Blake riots. (Read & Weep)

Why does Tony Evers hate cops? (If you can stand it.)

Cops have no love for AG Josh Kaul

If any law enforcement agent has endorsed Wisconsin’s Democrat(ic) attorney general, Josh Kaul isn’t advertising it. That’s what Wisconsin RightNow reports. By contrast, Eric Toney, the district attorney of Fond du Lac County who is running against Kaul, is endorsed by over 100 sheriffs, district attorneys, and police chiefs. What’s more, the Republican and has been unanimously endorsed by the Wisconsin Fraternal Order of Police State Lodge, Milwaukee Police Association,” Toney’s website says.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Public safety is the first responsibility of government. Which is why we’re working for Anthony Hamilton for sheriff of Dane County. He’s running against a sheriff Tony Evers appointed, one who calls jail inmates “residents.”

    Today is Day 20 since Mark Pocan said, of the unprecedented raid/search-and-seizure at Mar-A-Lago, the private home of a former President of the United States:

    “What I’m more worried about is the future of the country, that any president who has done as many things that I think are either illegal or unethical as Donald Trump — if there’s no accountability, you’ll have more Donald Trump. It appears there may be some accountability in progress, and that is a good thing.”

    Has anyone ever read Dr. Roland Fryer’s (Black, young, tenured econ prof at Harvard) exhaustive econometric study about how the police do use disproportional force on Black men though NOT disproportional lethal force? It’s pretty interesting. He looked at something like 160 different factors of police incidents across the country. Findings were 18 police shootings of unarmed Black men and 26 unarmed white men. While that’s not good, people usually have a misconception that the numbers are in the hundreds or thousands. And you have to wonder how muchBlack on Black gun violence has been perpetuated in the big cities due to the police pulling back their enforcement of laws and investigating criminal activities.

    I wish BLM would update their statements to reflect reality. It’s not wonderful news but it is still not mowing down Black men indiscriminately. That is still the narrative, facts be damned. What must young Black boys think about their future?

      A few FUN FACTS:

      *Blacks commit crimes in far greater numbers than their representation would warrant. African Americans are 12.6% of the U.S. population, but they account for 38.9% of all violent crime arrests—including 32.5% of all rapes, 55.5% of all robberies, and 33.9% of all aggravated assaults.

      *Is this because they are arrested for crimes they didn’t commit? Are they only “guilty of being black”? In fact, the statistics are compiled by interviewing the victims of these violent crimes, which in the case of crimes committed by blacks are mostly black themselves.

      *In 2010, black perpetrators were responsible for 80% of all violence against blacks (including 94% of homicides), while white perpetrators accounted for just 9% of all violence against blacks. Five times as many black attacks on whites as the reverse.

      *According to the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), which relies on crime victims to identify their assailants, 320,082 whites were victims of black violence in 2010, the latest year for which statistics are available, while 62,593 blacks were victims of white violence.

      *But these raw statistics understate the pattern. In 2010, the white and black populations in the United States were 197 million and 38 million, respectively. In other words, blacks committed acts of interracial violence at a rate 25 times higher than whites (849 per 100,000 versus 32 per 100,000).

      *This pattern has been among the most consistent findings of criminal-justice research for many years and for a wide variety of crimes.

      *Nationwide there were an estimated 67,755 black-on-white aggravated assaults in 2010, as compared to with just 1,748 white-on-black crimes of the same description. In other words, BLACKS COMMITTED ACTS OF INTERRACIAL AGGRAVATED ASSAULT AT A RATE 200 X HIGHER THAN EVIL WHITES, (181 per 100,000 population -v- 0.9 per 100,000)!

    I know I am starting to sound like a broken record but I have to point this out again and again.

    According to “Hey Jackass Chicago” only one person has been killed by the cops in Chicago this year while 466 people to date have been murdered in Chicago this year.
    https://heyjackass.com/

    78.3% of those murdered were black and yet I don’t see an outcry from the black community that white people are gunning them down on the streets. Possibly because most of the black people being gunned down are being gunned down by other black people.

    You want to end murders and other crimes?

    Black people have to restore order to their own communities by taking responsibility for the actions in their own families and communities.

    What is your issue? Drunken drivers.

    Drunken driving crashes in Dane County — including at least 11 fatalities — rose sharply during the first half of 2022.There were 80 automobile crashes between January and June involving alcohol, 41% more than the five-year average.

    The Tavern League control on the Republican legisture is complete. True law and order Republicans will call on Speaker Voz to mandate 6 months in state prison for first time drunk drivers.
