Der hærges stadig i den amerikanske by Baltimore. Undskyldningen er en ung sort kriminel, der er død i politiets varetægt. Hillary Clinton mener at det er politiets og det juridiske systems indbyggede racisme, der er problemet i byer som Baltimore, Ferguson og alle andre steder i USA, hvor man oplever race-uro, skriver Business Insider
“There is something profoundly wrong when African-American men are still far more likely to be stopped and searched by police, charged with crimes, and sentenced to longer prison terms than are meted out to their white counterparts. There is something wrong when a third of all black men face the prospect of prison during their lifetimes,” Clinton said. “We have allowed our criminal justice system to get out of balance and these recent tragedies should galvanize us to come together as a nation to find our balance again.”
Clinton’s speech came in the wake of Monday’s racially-charged riots in Baltimore, Maryland, in which violent protesters raged after the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died on April 19 after suffering a fatal spinal injury in police custody. The incident is just one of a number of controversial police-involved deaths of African-American men, which protesters have attributed to a racist criminal justice system.
For her part, Clinton said she saw a “unmistakable and undeniable” pattern in their deaths.
“Yet again the family of a young black men is grieving a life cut short. Yet again the streets of an American city are marred by violence, by shattered glass, and shouts of anger and shows of force. Yet again a community is reeling, its fault lines laid bare,” she said. ”From Ferguson to Staten Island to Baltimore, the patterns have become unmistakable and undeniable.”
Som jeg henviste til forleden så har hvide amerikanere større risiko for at blive skudt af politiet end sorte - hvis man korrigere for kriminalitet! Og jeg henviste også til Daniel Greenfield, der fortalte at politiet i Baltimore er overvejende sort. Men der er tilsyneladens store problemer med politiet i Baltimore skriver Kevin D Williamson for National Review
Would any sentient adult American be shocked to learn that Baltimore has a corrupt and feckless police department enabled by a corrupt and feckless city government? I myself would not, and the local authorities’ dishonesty and stonewalling in the death of Freddie Gray is reminiscent of what we have seen in other cities. There’s a heap of evidence that the Baltimore police department is pretty bad.
This did not come out of nowhere. While the progressives have been running the show in Baltimore, police commissioner Ed Norris was sent to prison on corruption charges (2004), two detectives were sentenced to 454 years in prison for dealing drugs (2005), an officer was dismissed after being videotaped verbally abusing a 14-year-old and then failing to file a report on his use of force against the same teenager (2011), an officer was been fired for sexually abusing a minor (2014), and the city paid a quarter-million-dollar settlement to a man police illegally arrested for the non-crime of recording them at work with his mobile phone. There’s a good deal more. Does that sound like a disciplined police organization to you
Og han går skridtet videre: “Unless I’m reading the charts wrong, the Baltimore city council is 100 percent Democratic”.
The other Democratic monopolies aren’t looking too hot, either. We’re sending Atlanta educators to prison for running a criminal conspiracy to hide the fact that they failed, and failed woefully, to educate the children of that city. Isolated incident? Nope: Atlanta has another cheating scandal across town at the police academy. Who is being poorly served by the fact that Atlanta’s school system has been converted into crime syndicate? Mostly poor, mostly black families. Who is likely to suffer from any incompetents advanced through the Atlanta police department by its corrupt academy? Mostly poor, mostly black people. Who suffers most from the incompetence of Baltimore’s Democratic mayor? Mostly poor, mostly black families — should they feel better that she’s black? Who suffers most from the incompetence and corruption of Baltimore’s police department? Mostly poor, mostly black families.
And it’s the same people who will suffer the most from the vandalism and pillaging going on in Baltimore, too.
The evidence suggests very strongly that the left-wing, Democratic claques that run a great many American cities — particularly the poor and black cities — are not capable of running a school system or a police department. They are incompetent, they are corrupt, and they are breathtakingly arrogant. Cleveland, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore — this is what Democrats do.
Ifølge Atlantas Derek Thomsen presses middelklassen ud af byerne jo mere venstredrejet boligpolitik der føres. Men måske er der andre grunde, skriver Lloyd Marcis i American Thinker. Den sorte befolkning overrepræsentation i kriminalstatistikkerne er ikke en følge af racismen, men af at sorte generelt opfører sig asocialt. Og det gør de bl.a fordi deres identitet er en mod-identitet, der hviler på at de er undertrykt og i deres undertrykkelse uden ansvar for deres opførsel
How do you expect black youths to react to the Left’s orchestrated campaign to convince them that white Republicans and conservatives are racist and out to get them, that white cops murder them at will, that the rich got rich stealing from them, and that business owners are selfish and evil?
These lies have been sold to black youths by the highest black voices in the country — Obama, Oprah, Sharpton, Holder, Jackson, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, and assorted other race exploiting scumbags. …if I sound angry, it is because I am.
Det var Baltimores egen sorte og demokratiske borgmester, der gav bøller og vandaler fripas - space to destroy - til at smadre Baltimores skattebetalende næringsdrivende forretninger.
