It’s Going To Get Very Ugly: Any Civil War Will Not Be ‘Black Versus White’ But Rather Patriots Against The Anarchists & Antifa Better Remember That Patriots Are MUCH Better Armed And Trained
It’s Going To Get Very Ugly: Any Civil War Will Not Be ‘Black Versus White’ But Rather Patriots Against The Anarchists & Antifa Better Remember That Patriots Are MUCH Better Armed And Trained By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
Breitbart recently had a headline saying that “Poll: 34% of American Voters Think Second Civil War Is Likely.”
I disagree. Not with the poll results, but with the question of whether civil war is “likely.”
One has to wonder what the percentages would be if the question was “if we are already seeing the beginning of civil war, right now.” I believe the number would be much higher, especially with the non-stop images like the one above on the nightly news.
The chaos, the infighting as seen in New York recently, the riots, looting, and the burning of buildings and property, much of which are businesses owned by minorities families just trying to grab their little piece of the “American dream.”
There are hundreds upon hundreds of businesses listed of the buildings damaged, looted in Minneapolis and St. Paul, compiled by Bring Me The News, and that was last updated on June 6th, and doesn’t count the damage in New York and other places where rioters were allowed free reign.
As of June 5, 2020, at least 15 people had died during protests over Floyd’s death, and more than half of them were black.
Seems that to the protesters, only some black lives matter.
We don’t see the massive protests from all the deaths of black men, women, and children in Chicago, each and every week, because that is black on black murders. We don’t see protests when millions of black babies are killed by abortion.
Here is another thing we do not see. Rioting when a white person is killed while in police custody, which happens more often than blacks or Hispanics or Asians killed by police.
First, note that over a five year period, 1,262 Blacks, 887 Hispanics, and 2412 Whites were shot to death by police. In aggregate, that’s a lot of people, and we should hope (and perhaps demand) that cops can be trained to use non-lethal force more often in many situations in which they feel threatened. Police in other countries seem to manage it. On the other hand, I’ve heard a great deal of rhetoric over the past week to the effect that police officers are basically just looking for black men to hunt down, and that there is a decent chance that any encounter between the police and a black man will result in the black man’s death. That is simply not borne out by the data (even if we note that some smaller number of deaths from police violence are not from shootings). Looking just at deadly shootings, black men get arrested two million times or so each year. Many millions more times, police have other adversarial encounters with black men, such as traffic stops, or confrontations that don’t lead to arrest. A tiny percentage of those encounters lead to deadly shootings, and in some fraction of those, the police use of force was justified by the threat faced by the officer. So the odds of an unjustified deadly shooting of a black man in a confrontation with police in any given instance is tiny.
Don’t get me wrong. EVERY SINGLE unjustified police shooting is a horrible crime, which not only may steal the victim’s life but tears at the fabric of society. But the notion that police are generally trigger happy and shooting to death anyone in sight, especially if he is black? The data don’t support even a moderate version of that rhetoric.
While no one disagrees that our justice system from law enforcement all the way to the court system needs to be updated and revamped, one has to still wonder….. what are Antifa and BLM really protesting?
The cop that kneeled on Floyd’s neck when Floyd died, was arrested and has been charged with second-degree murder, in addition to the third-degree murder charge officials filed.
Definitions vary state to state but according to the legal dictionary, first degree murder charges are generally only applied if the crime was “premeditated.”
….it is generally a killing which is deliberate and premeditated (planned, after lying in wait, by poison or as part of a scheme), in conjunction with felonies such as rape, burglary, arson, involving multiple deaths, the killing of certain types of people (such as a child, a police officer, a prison guard, a fellow prisoner), or with certain weapons, particularly a gun. The specific criteria for first degree murder are established by statute in each state and by the United States Code in federal prosecutions. It is distinguished from second degree murder in which premeditation is usually absent, and from manslaughter which lacks premeditation and suggests that at most there was intent to harm rather than to kill.
So, pretty much everyone agrees our justice system needs reform, the officer in question has been charged appropriately, and the statistic show that more whites die by cop than blacks.
I ask again….. why are they protesting and destroying minority owned businesses? I am not just talking about the Black Lives Matter protesters, as most of those across the nation have been peaceful protests. I am talking about the ones burning, looting and destroying, where just as many white Antifa domestic terrorists, known for their violence, are out there starting riots as BLM members, if not more.
