We have a public that has been primed for this. See Noam Chompsky's Manufacturing Consent. The event triggered movements that are far out of any proportionality to the trigger.

But I'm not too concerned, as they say some things you can't tell people you have to show them. Right now everyone is being shown that the autozone is incapable of gardening but really good at warlordism. It will go on until everyone gets the picture.

He wasn't a bunch, he was one guy, IN HANDCUFFS, during the whole incident! And he may have had priors, but he was not posing as a thug during the arrest, he was in HANDCUFFS!

When I mention countless others I am not talking about rioters and looters, I'm talking about people like this:





And I could spend all week posting more links to video, I couldn't even find the ones I was originally thinking of because they are too many, a video of a specific killing is too hard to find because there are too many!

There is no need for that. We all know there are abusive officers who denigrate police with their misconducts, but the good officers who do their best are often neglected by the blood-thirsty media. Violence sells more newspapers than random acts of kindness could ever do.

My experience with officers is there are 5% who are very disciplined and honorable, 85% who are just passing time, and 10% who are despicable cretins. Basically your typical spread of people in any occupation or organization.

Complicating the problem is that they all look exactly like the 10%, and those 10% behave differently in different circumstances. In 2014 Dave Chappelle got pulled over and given a warning. The next day that same cop shot John Crawford III for shopping while black.

But Chappelle is rich and famous, while Crawford was just some black guy who didn't have the luck to be a birdwatcher filming the person who called 911 and lied about him.

Every person's mood and behavior varies drastically throughout the day, and cops are no exception.

There appears to be no evidence to support that black people are more likely to be shot per police encounter than anyone else. Of course, a statistic like that don't make it more acceptable when people are unjustly killed.

Black people are more likely to be killed by black people. Black criminals are more likely to be killed by black cops, and violent crime is more likely to be committed by black people. None of that is an excuse to treat people as anything other than as unique individuals; the most minority group one can belong to.

Interest groups try to sweep it up under the banner of 'race' or 'class' when actually the reprehensible behaviors are proscribed by the Constitution.

What parts of our Constitution protect citizens against the Government's accusations of wrong doing? What are the foundations of the rights Americans can claim if they are either accused of an alleged crime or prosecuted for an alleged crime? The Rights of individuals accused of crimes are protected in many sections of the U.S. Constitution.

Is it coincidence that a bunch of blue states emptied out a bunch of jails for chinavirus then burned?
I think not.
