Walter,

Are you safe?

Shemp: angel Brown's body lay in the street for over four and a half hours, you racists.

Walter

We watched the verdict live as a family. We're currently an hour back on live coverage because we kept pausing to discuss the process and facts with the teen and tween.

My takeaway to them was:

1. Wilson fucked up. If you can't avoid putting your life at risk when you are in a cop car confronting two unarmed suspects, you shouldn't have a badge. Especially if you know backup is on the way. Not murder, but not right either.

2. NEVER, EVER, touch a cop's gun. If you do, you may not die, but he has the right to kill you. (I was lucky enough to learn this the easier way--a friendly touch followed by a lecture--but the lesson hasn't changed in at least 30 years.).

3. Do what the policeman tells you to do. If he's wrong, we can fix it later. If you're wrong, or he thinks you might be, we may not have the chance.

They were chastened. Spike said there were about twenty racist comments about equally split between whites and blacks in middle school today.

Here's an IBT story on the Russian loan to the Front National.

"French far-right Front National party said it borrowed €9m from a Russian lender, confirming an earlier report by investigative news site Mediapart.

The admission has raised concern among some commentators worried over possible foreign intrusion into French politics and comes at a time of increasing tension between Moscow and the West over the situation in Ukraine."

They say they couldn't get a similar loan from a French bank.

Incidentally, on economic issues, they are more on the left than the right, by American standards. (As I recall, the Wikipedia article on the party has some info on that subject.)

jimmyk

Wilson fucked up. If you can't avoid putting your life at risk when you are in a cop car confronting two unarmed suspects, you shouldn't have a badge.

I'd need a lot more information before jumping to that conclusion. Except in a 20-20 hindsight-y kind of way. Is a cop supposed to jump back in his car, roll up the windows and cower every time he is within 20 feet of a really big guy? It seems like we are back to "He should have stayed in his car."

Walter

JimmyK, My F-I-L headed Internal Affairs (Management Control) for the San Francisco PD for twenty of the last twenty-five years. He hated cops who couldn't follow procedures.

Take a WAG at how many PDs train a single cop to confront robbery suspects (plural) in such a way that they can reach their gun before the officer can.

Might be different where you live, but a cop won't approach my car on a traffic stop unless I'm seated with hands at 10 and 2.

Does it matter usually? Of course not. But I'm pissed at the kid's parents, who didn't even live with their kid, let alone with each other. I'm pissed at Michael Brown, though he's someone else's problem now. And I'm unhappy with Officer Wilson.

I don't want to lose two Fortune 500 headquarters (Emerson and ExpressScripts) because two people made bad choices.

And yes. A cop should identify robbery suspects when he is outnumbered and call for backup. Paticularly if the call is being handled by a _team_ of cops in another car. If your local PD trains otherwise, you should move.

Walter

jimmyk

He hated cops who couldn't follow procedures.

Walter, I'm not clear on what procedure Wilson failed to follow. I believe he did call for backup. Brown did not get his gun, despite trying. Should he have not tried to stop him in the first place? Should he have not chased him after the initial assault in the car? Honest questions.

glasater

Murdoch addressed the press with his right side turned toward them and answered all questions in that stance no matter which side of the room and reporter asking the question.
When he left the podium his left leg was stiff and he walked with a pronounced limp. I'm just wondering what kind of infirmity this man has suffered to cause this.

Walter

No, he should not have approached them until backup arrived.

Yes, he should have chased him after the encounter in the car.

My point is that he should not have had to. His mistake was in not controlling the situation before it became life-threatening.

Once Brown got his hand on the gun, Wilson acted properly to protect himself and the community from a felony suspect willing to commit assault or attempted murder on a policeman. That part was good. Heck, it was selfless insofar as he got out of his car to chase two guys he knew were dangerous.

My expectation is that he either be able to manage a situation so it won't get out of control or recognize that he might not be able to do so and wait for assistance before attempting to do so. Again, not criminal, but he certainly deserves no awards for recognizing felony suspects and backing his car into a position where a 'knucklehead' could reach in and get a hand on his gun.

daddy

Like this bit from Ben Shapiro's column at Breitbart:

Now the media, humiliated yet again, riot. Ezra Klein of Vox.com asked, with the legal insight of a mentally malfunctioning goldfish, whether Michael Brown had an advocate in the grand jury hearing (the answer: that’s not how grand juries work). Fellow non-lawyer Chris Hayes of MSNBC lamented that the grand jury procedure was “so far removed from normal criminal procedure it’s unrecognizable.”


Walter

I'm watching local news, JK, so I may have confused you inadvertently.

There are currently two groups of rioters due to two different youts shot by cops.

The one in the Shaw neighborhood had his own--well, stolen-- gun and got off three shots before an off-duty cop returned fire. Apparently, range Tim makes a difference.

Wilson in Ferguson faced a robbery suspect without knowledge of whether he was armed.

Walter

Range time makes even more of a difference than range Tim.

If only autocorrect were as effective on my overall rhetoric.

Another Bob

Walter, could not disagree more. You blame the victim. Recall that Brown was only a jaywalker and possible cigar thief until he made the choice to attack Wilson. The idea that we must have twelve cops on hand to handle the most minor situations leads us to other undesirable places. Wilson has to be allowed to make a judgment.

I'm hearing people interviewed on newscasts who, despite the mountain of evidence, still express displeasure that Wilson wasn't charged. I want to scream at them CHARGED WITH WHAT, YOU MORON, THE PUNK BROWN ATTACKED WILSON AND TRIED TO TAKE HIS GUN.

Our main problem is we indulge this sort of stupidity instead of firmly correcting it. The interesting question is why.

Jack is Back!

I awake and read the comments by walter and am puzzled as to what Wilson did wrong. As I understand it, Brown and friend were stopped for walking down the middle of the street and Wilson rolled down his window to talk them into a safer position when the APB on the robbery came over the radio. Brown reached into the car through the open window, right? Or did Wilson try to open the door and confront them as suspects?

Based on those two scenarios, what was incorrect police procedure?

jimmyk

So did Obama really (and stupidly) think he was being helpful and calming in his speech, or did some part of him want to give the go-ahead to the rioters? Calling the anger "an understandable reaction," and saying "there are still problems, and communities of color aren't just making these problems up," sure seems like giving them the old thumbs up, even if he paid lip service to "rule of law" etc.

jimmyk

JiB, I thought McCulloch said that when Brown and his buddy ignored the request to get out of the street, and after Wilson became aware of the robbery APB, Wilson pulled ahead and used the car to block the street. That was the point at which the confrontation occurred, but I don't know the precise details, whether Wilson had the car window down and was ordering them to stop, or if Brown just charged the vehicle.

danoso

Yeah, Walter wants to make the cop problem #1 - that's a dodge. Sort of like if GZ only stayed in his car, none of that would have happened. Completely skates around the problem.

At this point I'm like many - if they want to burn down their own neighborhoods, go ahead. As for all the law abiding innocents paying the price, well, maybe it's time to address the glorification of the thug culture of your 'utes'.

Or keep blaming the cops and watch it all burn.

jimmyk

And I think Walter is saying that prior to blocking off the street and confronting them, Wilson should have waited for backup, as he was outnumbered and did not know whether they were armed. To me that has to depend at least on whether Wilson actively tried to apprehend them, or was attacked by Brown while waiting for backup.

Dublindave

I actually believe Officer Wilson acted accordingly. If you're a cop I can't imagine the fear of someone trying to wrestle your gun away from you. The overriding sense that you're going to die unless you can put your adversary down isn't something that can be simply be turned off with a gesture from your assailant.


But I don't care. This isn't trolling or performance art,I really,really don't care. We,the Democrats want something in return for the killing of Michael brown.

This is how the world works...you buy something you pay for it. For every negro you kill you owe us something....legislation,funding,a change in institutional policy etc. You pay us and we pay the African-American and they pay us with votes.

So, what are you going to give us?

But after delivering a mini lecture about indulging stupidity, I'm obligated to say...

I'd say you should be ashamed of yourself, but you have none. It's all yucks to you, but that attitude has created thousands of misguided rioters and is ruining people as we speak. Fuck you and your performance art DD.

jimmyk

Actually the "blocking off the street" part is not in Wilson's testimony, which I just looked at:
http://graphics8.nytimes.com/newsgraphics/2014/11/24/ferguson-evidence/assets/interviews/interview-po-darren-wilson.pdf

Evidently Wilson was driving toward them, opposite the direction they were walking, asked them to get out of the street, they said "F*** what you have to say" and kept walking, so he put the car in reverse to get back to them, and as he started to open the door, Brown attacked him through the window, went for the gun, etc.

I suppose you could second-guess his backing up and putting himself in a vulnerable spot, but that seems like 20-20 hindsight.

45 seconds. The time between the first words and Brown's death. Shit happens very fast and people make split second decisions, a lot of them stupid.

Ferguson apparently doesn't have a lot of crime. The idiot stole the Swishers and had them in his hand as he walked down the middle of the street when the cop ID'd him.

Apparently all the cop asked was to get out of the middle of the street and then it went to shit. The thug grabbed for the gun and all bets were off.

He got shot in the hand twice and there was blood on the inside and outside of the car and the officer's uniform.

He ran, the cop pursued. The adrenaline kicked in with both persons. He turned back and apparently charged the cop. The cop discharged most of the magazine. 45 seconds.

End of story. Shitty situation, but we can't second guess this one.

henry

Walter, good to hear you are safe. Your comments on police procedure are interesting. In Milwaukee a mentally ill man was shot near city hall when he grabbed the officer's baton and attacked after the (lone) officer started to frisk him. That was in May. The police department fired the officer for violating procedure, and investigations into the shooting continue. The police union voted no confidence in the police chief after the firing. The procedure is important, but does requiring back-up to advise a motorist they have a headlight out go too far?

We have the same calls for "no justice, no peace" as in Ferguson, the same nightly protests and blocking streets, and a far more sympathetic victim. Why did the national media pick Ferguson over Milwaukee?

fdcol63

Because Ferguson is in the "heartland".

NKontheNovreboot

henry -- events dear boy .. events. The Brown meme quickly became the 'hands up... don't shoot' lie that the drugged up punk Brown pal spewed. That meme drew in the race hustlers in, and once the race hustlers are in Obummer and Holder are in because.. well because they are race hustlers. This con played out a lot like Tawana Brawley. The meme was started by a lie, and once the lie was told the race hustlers had to play it out. Mercifully, this lie was put to bed a lot quicker than the Tawana farce. Crump and Sharpton have still got to be paid though. The Federal investigation will be put to bed with that civil 'settlement'.

It's exactly that attitude that endangers the lives of (mostly young, ill-educated) black men in the first place.

The squalid "culture' that excuses (when it's not encouraging or actually glorifying) street crime, drug use, disrespect for self and everyone else, etc. also shares a lot of blame for what we saw last night.

And who do the makers of that culture overwhelmingly support, with money and votes?

NKontheNovreboot

JamesD-- very true. race Hustling and the serfs they drag into it, is a culture that has a long pedigree... about 90 years worth, although it took off with the kennedys/LBJ 'Great Society' scam. But I force myself to remember, not all black people buy into this culture, probably not even a majority. So I take every one I meet, based on where they are personally, not this corrosive race culture.

Tammany was doing the same hustling in NYC in the 1850's. It was endemic in most large cities. It was called the machine and it doled out jobs and favors for party loyalty.

The Irish, the Italians, the Jews and most other minorities wised up and got their piece of the pie. Some of it was corrupt, some of it just the spoils of politics.

The Great Society was a well intentioned idiocy that hastened the disintegration of our society, especially affecting our black brothers and sisters.

Now it's the same with La Raza, but the grifting is especially egregious in the AA community. They have to figure out that education, self discipline and conforming to social norms pay off in a better quality of life and that bad behavior is not rewarded. Unfortunately, that is not true in many cases.
