(Jihad Watch) It is significant that jihadist Iran would come out in solidarity with Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Friendship between Leftists and Islamic supremacists (the red-green axis) is an alliance of mutual convenience. Their accord is really about their mutual goal to destroy America by subversion.
I find it curious that the Democrat caucus in the US Senate and the House of Representatives finds itself coming down on the side of Iran, of all places. Then again, they were the architect of the Iran Nuclear Program, thinly disguised as the Iranian program to acquire nuclear weapons, which Iran promised would be used against the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia (not in that order).
The saddest part of all of this is that I have friends who are democrats and might be reading this blog. Iran, really? Riots and looting, really?
Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti in the pocket of Qatar? What are they getting for the $5 million that they gave him? It’s a fair question. Whose side is Garcetti on? He’s cutting $150 million from the police budget. I can’t imagine working for LAPD. I’m sure that anyone who can leave, will.
The New York Times is advocating for police reform. I read an article that the enlightened left put out touting the San Francisco Police Department as the poster child for change.
I’ve worked with friends at San Francisco PD over the years. The late, GREAT, Sergeant Tom Perdue, SFPD was one of the very best investigators I ever worked with. However, taken on whole, the place is a corrupt mess. The Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) has de-certified them several times in the past for being substandard in all respects.
More than a few years ago, I traveled to San Francisco to do a case against Black Muslims in San Francisco (yes, of course, Black Muslims matter). We were buying 85 Kg of cocaine from a local kingpin named “Mohammed”, not his birth name. I was met at the airport by a District Attorney Investigator who immediately informed me that he was not homosexual. He said, “A lot of detectives on the police department and at the District Attorney’s Office there were ‘paychecks’. They were no-show jobs. Various people were appointed by the Mayor and never went through police training. They received a badge and a gun from the departments and only showed up on payday to collect. (One of many reasons that they were de-certified)
He said, “You’re in for a treat, today is payday. Watch the freak parade for yourself.” We walked into the detective bureau at SFPD and I noted an attractive lady, blue dress, taller than me, but well dressed. My partner went to the men’s room to urinate and as he stood at the stall, he noticed that this same lady in the blue dress swished up next to him, raised her dress, pulled the part out and took a whiz in the adjacent urinal. Maybe it was looking for a friend? I can’t read minds. I realize that it may sound homophobic that it took him by surprise. He wasn’t accustomed to that, but it’s San Francisco.
While we were there two SFPD officers committed an armed robbery while in uniform. We got looped into the investigation because our faces were unfamiliar and we worked undercover. Apparently that sort of thing did not happen every day, but it wasn’t unusual either. Let’s face it, the place IS very progressive.
The City of Minneapolis is looking to replace the existing police force. City Councilman Fletcher said they would like to replace the city’s police force by starting “fresh with a community-oriented, non-violent public safety and outreach” model. If you call 911, a social worker shows up. Buy lots of popcorn.
The City of Dallas, TX removed the statue of a Texas Ranger from the Airport. Is Texas going to de-fund the Rangers? Where do they go from here?
As I’ve Pointed Out
Where I live, we never see the police. If you call 911, it’s a two-plus hour response. By the time that they arrive, what’s happened is over and done.
But I’ve lived in a lot of other places, and removing the police from the equation gives power to gangs, roving thugs and will result in vigilantes handling the daily problems that arise that were traditionally handled by law enforcement.
In a way, it’s like where I live. Problems are almost always handled without the need for police intervention. But what works in a place like this, won’t work in a ghetto.
This is not the era of Judge Roy Bean (the only law west of the Pecos). And the tighter you pack people into cities, the more likely it is that things will get out of hand.
