Pin,

Years of experience have taught me that people do stupid shit when cops show up.

In my case I always cooperated when stopped by an LEO, assuming that I hadn't already tried to escape and evade. When they get you they get you. If you've done nothing wrong you try to explain that. If they don't buy it you shut-up and hope they come to their senses.

Somebody falling asleep in a Wendy's drive through lane and freaking out when the cops showed up suggests that the guy had some hidden concerns.

Unpaid parking tickets, a bench warrant outstanding, drugs in the car or being intoxicated. I know not which, but something triggered that response.

Or just a huge adrenaline rush that was channeled poorly. If you panic and need to run, do so unarmed. Don't fight with and steal a Taser from an officer and then point it at him.

Just give the guy the Darwin award in a sedate ceremony. No need to riot on his behalf.

jim nj

I've mentioned before that I was a non-violent juvenile delinquent. I stole shit. Lots of it. Fortunately, I got that out of my system before I turned 18.

I feel sorry for people of any color that can't learn that lesson early.

The whole idea of black suppression by white authorities, if believed, causes some of the these law enforcement encounters to go bad. It creates this sense that I have the right to resist. No, you have no right to resist.

It's almost like people won't take responsibility for their own actions. Instead of OK you got me, it's like you're harassing me and that I should have been able to get away with that thing.

jim nj

If I'm going to be racist about it I would say that blacks never learn early on to drop violent or aggressive behaviors. And it catches up with them.

Whites who don't learn the lessons early on engage in predominately financial crimes later in life. Fraud, embezzlement and generally thinking they are smart enough to beat the system in one fashion or another.

It's strong arm vs. finesse. Neither works in the long run. The former is easier to correct at an early age with intervention. It's also easier to identify and catch. For the latter, either the behavior isn't caught earlier or it arises later in life under some kind of distress. The character flaw was always there it just may have gone unexpressed.

DrJ

jim_nj,

You are on a roll this evening! I agree generally, but goodness you are on a rant!

jim nj

I don't know if it's societal or educational.

There may be street smart and book smart.

Some people just never learn the accepted norms.

The street smart understand the use of violence. The "game" is more terminal and may require more decisive action. The book smart rely upon guile and deception.

So when I read that blacks are responsible for 53% of homicides and almost 60% of robberies it is not surprising.

It's two different business models.

DrJ,

I've lived this. I f*cked up early and then was shown the light. I got caught. More than once. I greatly disappointed my parents who had taught me better. They didn't disown me as being bad, but they made it abundantly clear that my actions were bad.

My parents support was important. While I was never incarcerated I was directed to attend group therapy with a bunch of other delinquents.

They were even worse than I was. Many came from dysfunctional families.

All I had to learn was that I was not entitled to things that I hadn't earned or paid for.

I finally learned to grasp that and never got in trouble as an adult.

And growing up in a community that was 25% black I saw the other side. People who subscribed to a black form of "machismo."

I plotted, they reacted. Often violently.

Pinandpuller

Mothers Against Drunk Drivers got that man kilt. That and Jose Cuervo.

jim nj

And I grew up in a community plagued with drug addiction. The same pattern appeared.

I managed to avoid that as I was deathly afraid of acquiring an addiction. I saw what it did to people.

The same pattern emerged. Whites were scammers and sometimes B&E artists, Blacks tended toward strong arm tactics.

Whites could run "confidence games" against family, friends and relatives who had some money until they had burned all trust. Blacks never had that route and had to go strong arm from the git go.

At the risk of sounding racist again, if Blacks were properly educated they would have the same ability to engage in "confidence games."

DrJ

My parents support was important.

You were fortunate. Not all of us are, or were.

Pinandpuller

It’s a little poetic that Wendy’s “donated” $500k to a Thurgood Marshall scholarship fund yet two restaurants still got burned to the ground.

jim nj

When I was going through my teen-age angst there were some cops I absolutely hated. They often tried to cheat.

And there were some good ones who were trying to get me straight. They played fair.

Gentlejim reminds me of the latter. I had contempt for the former and great respect for the latter.

Maybe that gets lost in large communities. Where it's hard to have a personal relationship with every possible miscreant.

But in a smaller community the good cops would tell the bad cops to lay off of kids that they were reaching.

The good cops guided, the bad ones were focused on busts.

Mind you I'm reaching back 50 years in my memory, but the good cops were smarter and more compassionate.

jim nj

DrJ,

It was never about me with my parents. It was about my behavior.

I was blessed to have parents who recognized the difference.

Most of my friends weren't so lucky. Nothing quite like having your parents calling you evil. And that happened to many friends.

So, what I'm irredeemable, I can't change?? Children are influenced by that.

Students Demand Harvard Law School Reverse Its Decision To Be 100% Online In Fall 2020

Even the best virtual learning cannot replicate the opportunities that come with in-person learning. Although students in all years and of all backgrounds will be negatively affected by a solely virtual semester, for some members of our community, including international students and those with learning disabilities, in-person education is even more important. These students will suffer from immediate and lasting effects on their career and living situation, including being barred from all employment opportunities and not even being allowed to remain in or enter the United States.

Funny how they can dance around the obvious factors like "I paid for Harvard so I could get all those networking contacts"

Miss Marple,

The Twitter thread led by comments of the former General Michael Hayden is disgusting. I recall when the completely unimpressive Hayden was appointed by that mental giant 🙄 George W. Bush, the president who believed that war, to use his term, should be generational.

Hayden was the perfect lapdog. Supposedly, he was sent in by Bush, jr. to clean up the CIA. Considering the state of that agency today, it's a wonder that Hayden has the nerve to comment at all let alone allege that President Trump is the equivalent of Benedict Arnold. It is very telling statement from that corner of the swamp. Our military leaders, both former and current, leave a lot to be desired.

I am also disgusted at the cadet showing the insulting t-shirt under his jacket (although it possibly could be a photo-shop).

It is disheartening to me to see so many people who are so vile in their comments and behavior towards President Trump, and I honestly don't understand it, except for that explanation that I posted from a Twitter user above: It's behavior as if their world is coming to an end.

I wonder what crooked deals and creepy behavior Hayden was up to.

I don't buy the idea the only reason new cases of Wuflu have blipped up is because of more testing.

Some of it is testing (which is why there's no uptick in deaths and hospitalizations), the rest is mainly where there were very few cases to begin with, so a low level of herd immunity. Regardless, the absolute numbers are low, but that doesn't stop the MSM panic porn pushers from going full steam.

If you go to worldometer and look at CA or FL or TX you see cases ramping up substantially while they have plummeted in places like NY. It is a contagious disease, and while there are many factors involved, people in more contact with each other can be expected to raise the infection rate some amount.
There doesn't seem to be any rise in new deaths but that is a lagging indicator so we'll see.

I'm just saying we need to be prepared for increasing calls to shut down again, because they are surely coming.

TM, your post is why, no matter how much you may dislike President Trump, he's the only hope we have in national politics right now.

You say "Don't expect the dean to stand tall for free speech or academic freedom. "Racist" is the Ace of trump right now."

Can you name one single national GOP politician who would stand up to this madness for even 2 minutes, other than Trump?

James D.

It's almost like people won't take responsibility for their own actions. Instead of OK you got me, it's like you're harassing me and that I should have been able to get away with that thing.

Well, when they're taught precisely that by popular culture and by most of their teachers, and there's nobody in the home or anywhere else in their life to serve as a counter-example, it's hardly surprising that way too many people have that attitude.

It's almost like their "leaders" have had a vested interest for several decades in creating a permanent, emotionally-crippled underclass.
