New Bill Authored by NY State Senator About Calling Police is a Disaster Waiting to Happen. Here’s What it Says.

Published

New York Sen. Jesse Hamilton is proposing a new bill, that if passed, would make it a hate crime to call the police on minorities, effectively allowing folks of color who commit heinous acts to virtually get away with murder.

This is the kind of absurdity that eventually rolls downhill from a constant focus and obsession on identity politics. Bad folks are bad folks, regardless of their skin color and these individuals need to be held accountable for their actions. They shouldn’t be given a free pass because of their skin color.

Last week, a supporter of President Donald Trump called the police on Hamilton, who was handing out anti-Trump materials in his district.

“That’s gonna be a hate crime,” Hamilton said. “This pattern of calling the police on black people going about their business and participating in the life of our country has to stop.”

The New York Post reported that the woman called 911 and complained about Hamilton’s stance on Trump’s immigration policies.

Hamilton’s bill targets situations like the one that took place at a Starbucks in Philadelphia, where two black customers were arrested because they were in the coffee shop without purchasing anything while waiting on a friend to arrive.

In a situation like that, if the minority victim feels that the call was racially motivated, he or she could report that to the police, who would then investigate whether the call was justified and whether it was motivated by race.

The consequences could be even more serious if the person who calls the police unjustifiably indicates that the minority could be a threat, which could endanger that person unnecessarily.

Hamilton made sure he drew attention to the fact that bill includes a provision aimed at making sure that if there’s a good reason for the call, even if it turns out to be nothing, would not be a crime a person was charged for.

You see, that’s all well and good, but who gets to decide the criteria for what is a legitimate threat or concern and what isn’t? How will this law be enforced and what are the loopholes that criminals can exploit?

This is really just a horrifically bad idea, but unfortunately, racial politics is all the rage these days. It’s time to return to Martin Luther King Jr.’s teaching about judging a person by the content of their character and not their skin color, a lesson for both sides to learn.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
