    Of course this sounds as if I am anti-Afro American, but truthfully, I think I’m just the opposite. Indeed, like the vast majority of whites,. I truly would love to see blacks assimilate into society. Still, I have to post this hypothetical question which sounds like a racial rant or from a naive innocent, but I feel is very deep if one takes the time to think it through. If by the wave of a wand, all the non Afros in the US were to be gone, would the country survive; or would it fall into total chaos? I would submit that there is a missing piece of logic in the brains of those brought up in black communities that would cause them to turn against one another.

    Just have to vent. A minute before I started to type this, Fox News reported that the cop in Ferguson resigned after his chief informed him there were reliable reports that if he returned to work their were legitimate threats and his safety was threatened. The very next report was that the President is meeting today in regards to Ferguson and the main talk will be centered around the issue to insure that the citizens do not feel threatened by the police. Can we not impeach these gangstas running our country into the ground?

    Part 5

    Thinking to today. What would be going on, if the news media made a one-time honest report way back when of the ongoing protest of those awaiting the grand jury decision, and then not reported it anymore until real news events required to be reported? Would New York have thousands of people parading through mid-town today? I think not. Their daily barrage was a call to arms for all young black men against ‘the man’ that they have been brought to disrespect.

    First the team of Barack Obama, Susan Rice, Eric Holder, et al. Now the black thugs of America. I remember back when Nikita Khrushchev announced that he didn’t have to go to war with us, that Communism would bury us from within. Isn’t that what is happening?

    And all the while our politicians and the press twist the truth.

    Part 4

    Detroit, Mi; Winston-Salem, NC; Wash, DC; Baltimore, Md; Chicago, Il; Kansas City, Mo; Louisville, Ky; and Akron, Oh. All of these occurred between 1963 and 1968. Interestingly enough, Richard Nixon, who had a reputation for toughness, was elected in 1968.

    In 1967, the Kerner Commission was created “to investigate the causes of the 1967 race riots in the United States and to provide recommendations for the future.” Like so many of these things, the findings were mostly hogwash.

    Probably the most truthful of its finding was that the riots resulted from black frustration at lack of economic opportunity, although I would add that this frustration was more volatile with teens and young men, who themselves were being prodded by individuals and groups who openly despised white people. ‘Black Power’ Groups such as SNCC and the Black Panthers, and agitators such as Stokely Carmichael, H Rapp Brown, and Huey Newton.

    Having such a potential tinderbox in all lower class black communities across the country it didn’t take much to be ignited.

    The biggest agitator, which has again reared its ugly head today, was the new media. Once the newspapers of the day made headlines of the riots, these were an inspiration for the agitators, and it didn’t take much for them to help incite other riots.

    Part 3

    So what really was happening in the 60s. Because of what we’re been led to believe it was the South where the real heavy racism was fifties years ago. We hear of Bull Connor, George Wallace, dogs being set on blacks people, segregation, etc.

    Indeed, these things did occur, but they had nothing to do with the rioting of the 60s. As a citizen in a small but lower class city in the northeast, I can assure you that there was NO racism. Racial slurs were almost nonexistent and indeed, although our black community was small, they were treated equally by all. In fact, if memory serves, Captain Cheeks in the Fire Department was the most favored public servant in our city.

    I bring this up because I think most of the northeast was of the same attitude at that time.

    I don’t recall where the first riot broke out but the first that Wikepedia reports happened in Cambridge, Mass in 1963, not quite the deep south which we all have been led to believe was the boiling part of the country.

    The copycats that broke out over the next five years were (mostly) not in the South, but seemingly in every area but there. For anyone that cares check out Wikipedia. Harlem, NY; Rochester, NY; Jersey City, NJ; Elizabeth, NJ; Chicago, Ill; Philadelphia, Pa; Los Angeles, Ca; Cleveland, Oh (1966 and 1968); Benton Harbor, Mich; Tampa, Fl; Buffalo, NY; Newark, NJ; Plainfield, NJ (where a cop who was loved by the community was brutally stomped to death);

    Part 2

    I suspect that if the news media had simply initially reported this protest and then not reported anything further until the decision was announced, the country would not be in the situation where we now find ourselves. Instead, cable news inundated their viewers with the non events of every hour of every day during this waiting period, basically prediction a bad outcome in Ferguson. Sadly, I suspect that there were many like myself who had lived through the riots of the 60s, who knew Ferguson wouldn’t be the only city involved. Heck, people all over the country were being bombarded with this news. It was inevitable that certain members of the black communities would prepare to agitate and stir up citizens who have been lied to and brainwashed against the white community and white police officers in particular.

    When the ashes die out, this whole sad affair will need to be examined. I submit that the most efficient and sensible way is to first understand what happened during the 60s, how that began, how it quelled.

    The truth of the matter is that the main culprits from the beginning have been the news media along with spineless, opportune, and/or greedy politicians.

    For those who care to understand, make no mistake. We have been lied to, both the black and the white community who trust the news and those who we voted to represent us. These lies had created a smattering of black opportunists who stirred up their communities every chance they got.

    Part 1

    As I type the City of Ferguson, Mo. is burning, people of the neighborhood and agitators have gathered in the streets, gunshots abound, police are standing around, deliberately not getting involved for fear of encouraging the rioters and looters who have been active.

    During the last hour, Shep Smith of Fox News has show what seems to be thousands of protesters (the majority being black) in the streets of New York (not in the ghetto but only blocks away from Fox News itself. Scenes of crowds gathering in Philadelphia were also shown.

    There is no doubt in my mind that many other cities will be joining in on these so called protests which can only lead to further violence in the form of riots, with fires and looting prevalent.

    It will be reported as the outcome of a grand jury non-indictment of a police officer in Ferguson who it would appear only did his job, but killing a young man in the process of protecting the community at large.

    The scenes that I fear are about to unfold will mainly be the result of a blitz of news coverage over the past two weeks. During that time, there have been small bodies protesting in Ferguson while they awaited the Grand Jury’s decision, which they obviously felt should have been for an indictment of the police officer.

    Wouldn’t it make much more sense to pass a ‘clean up politics’ law where NO POLITICAL ADVERTISING would be allowed? The ideal would be to take ALL donations away from the process, thereby eliminating the need for those elected to be beholden to anyone but their constituents?

    Step 1 would be for the government to create and fund a separate TV network for each major political party and one for all others. This would be only one part that would allow candidates to get out their message, as there would also need to be ways for them to reach people who don’t have access to cable/digital TV. Although government funded, each party would man and maintain their separate network. This would cost us, but the benefits would be mind-blowing.

    Other things would have to be done, but the network thing would be the foundation.

    Ditto :) I think I had two weeks left on my agreement with Carbonite and had been about to renew when they bailed on Rush. A no brainer for me…Goodbye Carbonite, hello external drive (that’s all I really needed anyway.) Their betrayal of Rush was a foolish move.

    What should our Federal taxes be used for? Military, yes. Infrastructure, yes. Security (FBI, clandestine service), yes. After that, I would suggest that much of the rest should be open to public debate. Drastic reductions if the work force, or even the total elimination of various Departments surely are needed. Burger King is only one of the latest, not the first. Even individuals themselves have begun to give up their citizenship; all with the intent to ease the tax burden. This has all been a small start, but it could very well be ‘the start of something big’.

    We certainly don’t need a Department of Education, which didn’t even exist until 1979. Sadly, the education level of our students have been lowered since that time! The budget this year: $67 billion!!! If that isn’t insanity, I don’t know what is. Not being an expert, I won’t speculate which other departments should be eliminated, but undoubted they can all be trimmed drastically.

    This is OUR government, working for We The People. Yet who amongst us gave the okay for bonuses to be handed out to the government workers? Or the lavish trips we’ve heard about? Do we have a Politburo giving their okay to such nonsense? Millions of our citizens are out of work, many as qualified or more qualified than those currently getting bonuses for doing a job.

    Another link being weakened in the chains that bind. The burden of taxes is an albatross around the necks of us all. For those that want a nanny state that watches over them in every phase of their lives, I think this should be another warning that the liberal/progressive wave has already washed to the shore and now the undertow is in progress. Inevitably the wave will recede and the waters will calm.

    I don’t elect national politicians so that they may go to Washington and pass laws and help inspire regulations. By the turn of the last century there were enough laws on the books to fulfill all of the requirements of the Constitution. Laws after that should have been few and far between, but instead Congress has continued being an activist legislature, passing 5000 or more bills a year. How insane!

    Why do they do it? Because the liberal media has brainwashed us, along with our Senators and Representatives, mostly through a clever campaign which plays on our ‘feelings’ and criticizing those elected officials who don’t do their bidding, shouting out in headlines about a Do Nothing Congress, as the NY Times, et al continuously do.

    I give huge thanks to those that oppose most of the bills. The vast amount of hard working Americans whose paychecks are being taxed would certainly agree that we have too much government.

    As usual, everyone here is shooting from the hip. If indeed this reporter was suspended, I’d like to see a written explanation why from the station. Like most ‘stories’ on The Blaze, this is full of holes, missing or skewed facts.

    From NJ myself, I know there was a huge outcry to the station even before the reporter’s story was aired, a concerted efforts by cops who I guess thought that the anti-cop attitude in the community was being glamorized or something. I personally didn’t see it that way, but I can see why those cops thought the airing might inflame the situation.

    Then there was the reporter’s comment as to the reason for this anti cop attitude, laying the blame on there being a lack of family in the community.

    Was he fired? If so, was it one of the above two reasons? Some other reason? As usual we’re fighting amongst ourselves before all the facts are known. Instead of uniting, once again we are being divided, as seems to be happening with every story nowadays.

    How about a bill that gives the final say to We The People? Let the politicians pass the laws that they see fit. However, during the month of November after a sufficient amount of time elapses after the bill is passed, the final approval/disapproval question passes on to the electorate. Of course this proposal would need to be thought out, but I think if worked properly, much of the crap that is piled onto us can be eliminated.

  • November 6, 2013 at 9:06am

    Yes it’s normal for a police department to be named in the suit because officers are acting as agents of the police force, but that doesn’t make the system right. If the department is not involved as a whole, there is no reason we the taxpayers should foot the bill of a law suit. If the individual cops and doctors were at fault, the individual cops and doctors should pay. This same model should apply to any work place incident. If the employer didn’t somehow encourage such behavior of their employees, the employer should not be held accountable. As things stand, if this guys wins the suit from the city, what’s to discourage other bad employees elsewhere? If we have to have legislators, the least they could do is to pass legislation that is fair to all. It certainly isn’t fair to employers at present.

    RNM. You can go back to the start of this site and not once have I ever called out someone who is commenting. Keep in mind that as you are not an Obama wing nut, I am not a Palin wing nut. However, I can’t help but be amazed that person after person here is disputing you with real facts and you simply continue to spout nonsense, obviously not reading or at least not absorbing what is honestly being presented to you. In short, you are obviously blind once your mind has been made up and that my friend is a dangerous thing.
