Killing Of Law Enforcement Officers Up 28% During Year Of Intense Unrest

Published

mass shooting

It will probably come as no shock to those of you who read this publication that the murder of police officers in the line of duty has risen sharply this year in light of the increase in tension between folks in the community and law enforcement departments.

Police killings have risen by 28 percent compared to this same time last year, which is a massive increase. Is it any wonder cops are scared to death to go out on the streets and do their jobs right now? This is already a tough job with tons of risk. Imagine how much worse it is during these anti-cop protests that have been going on for months?

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

There have been 32 felonious officer deaths as of July 14, which is up from 25 killings at the same time last year, according to data from the FBI. Seven of the officers were killed in ambushes. The data does not include officers who were accidentally killed while on the job in traffic accidents or other such tragedies.

A report from ABC News found that the uptick in killings of police officers could be connected to the nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died while in Minneapolis police custody. The report found that more officers have been killed during times of civil unrest.

“Going out on the street and directing violence to somebody who represents the government, because police are an arm of the government, is the easiest thing to do. There is a constant search for the scapegoat for whatever is happening in the society, and the scapegoat ends up being law enforcement regardless of what it is that people have grievances about,” said Maria “Maki” Haberfeld, a professor of police science at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.

There have been several major periods of unrest in recent decades, including the Michael Brown shooting back in 2012 in Ferguson, Missouri, the “Occupy Wall Street” protests, and of course the 2016 Black Lives Matter protests after the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.

Being a police officer is a thankless job, yet these individuals risk their lives to keep our communities safe. And how are they being thanked for their sacrifice? With death. It’s tragic.

Now, there are bad cops out there and even bad departments. These need to be dealt with. Legally. Through the criminal justice system. Not with murder.

Rashida Tlaib Seals Victory In Michigan Democratic House Primary

Published

on

Well, it’s looking likely everyone’s favorite “Squad” of anti-Semitic starlets in the House will be reunited for another go at Congress as Rep. Rashida Tlaib won the Michigan Democratic House primary race. Tlaib is gunning for a second term representing Michigan’s 13th congressional district. She defeated Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: Their election was defined by the issues of race and her resource monopoly compared to Jones. Tlaib’s victory was a surprise given the record number of black Detroit voters who mailed in their ballots to officials ahead of the Aug. 4 primary. Tlaib and Jones first met in the 2018 special election to replace the late Rep. John Conyers. Conyers had resigned over sexual misconduct accusations at the height of the #MeToo movement. Jones won the four-way special election before Tlaib clinched victory by fewer than 1,000 votes five weeks later. The second contest was against a more crowded six-way field for the longer stint in Washington. All four of their former general election rivals backed Jones, a 15-year councilor. Polling was sparse throughout the race, but a Target-Insyght poll late last month had Tlaib in front, 53% to 24% . The Palestinian-American, who along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was one of the first two Muslim women to win seats in Congress, was leading in the cash stakes. She raised $2.9 million, in contrast to Jones’ $140,000 in July. Jones was disadvantaged after contracting COVID-19 as well. If there’s two people this country could stand to see less of, it’s Tlaib and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Unfortunately, despite all of their anti-Semitic remarks poor decision making, they will probably win second terms. Try not to hurt yourself jumping with joy.

Biden Delivers Bizarre Interview; Walks Back Claims On Cognitive Tests, Rambles On About ‘Cocaine’

Published

on

Over the last year or so, there’s been a lot of speculation that Joe Biden’s mental health is in serious decline. He’s lost his train of thought in the middle of a sentence on numerous occasions, needed to have questions repeated, rambled incoherently, forgotten parts of the Declaration of Independence, and much more. Do we really want a guy like that in the White House? Of course not. But the left is moving full steam ahead with him as their candidate anyway. Biden recently gave a very strange interview in which he walked back previous claims of taking cognitive tests and rambled on about cocaine. You just have to to see this for yourself. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “Have you taken a cognitive test?” CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked. “No, I haven’t taken a test,” Biden shot back. “Why the hell would I take a test? Come on man, that’s like saying, you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” “What do you say to President Trump, who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?” the host pressed as Biden laughed. “Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden responded. “Did you watch that, look, come on man, I, I, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean I’m so forward looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and debates. There gonna be plenty of time, and by the way, as I joke with’em, you know, I, I shouldn’t say it. I’m going to say something, I…
