Police: ‘All of a sudden we’re all racist killers’?

Police officers dispatched to investigate a 911 hang-up last week in an Idaho suburb were surprised by the reaction they got from the mother of the children who’d been playing with the phone.

“She said, ‘I’ve told my kids not to talk to you because you’re the people who kill us,’ ” said Tracy Basterrechea, deputy police chief in Meridian, Idaho, near Boise. The mother was Hispanic and her children African-American, he said.

Police in Meridian and other cities across the country are facing an angry backlash from the public after a series of police killings of unarmed African-Americans.

Some in the law enforcement community say the incidents – and the protests that followed – are a wake-up call that should spark soul-searching among officers and drive departments to revamp training.

But many police think they’re being stereotyped as racist and brutal…

    Through the demonization of those who uphold the law (and who also protect us from those who have no regard for the law), these insurrectionists gain power by constraining the ability of those that could easily stop them, however their actions will be excused and “understood” in all the media narratives.

    This is an extension of the Marxist occupy movement (many of the same players and groups) and the racial grievance mongers that have joined forced with them, such as Obama, Holder, and Sharpton.

    “A communist future is the only future worth fighting for. Question what you have heard and start to realize this reality. Or keep getting murdered by the cops.”

    Easy.
    Don’t remake White movies if whites are so bad.

    eg. Black Annie.

      Can you picture the outcry if they “re-imagined” “Roots” but with White Irish indentured servants?
      That might actually be a good movie, now that I think of it.

        Please don’t include me in these race discussions as I was
        born with White privilege and thus I am above this type of talk.

        You could hang it on the narrative in the irish folk song “whiskey in the jar”. it would be good.

    The truth about black dysfunction is not pretty, so the lies about an outer force causing their troubles find a big audience.

    On the other hand, black have some genuine complaints to make, like the gutting of US jobs by immigration and outsourcing, but few seem to connect those dots, at least out in public.

      Funny this never pops up in interracial discussions……

    Well. If that’s how the Latin alleycat sees it, let her return to wherever she came from, and take her mongrels with her. Their loss would be Idaho’s gain.

    Perhaps as a parting gift Meridian’s finest can offer her a hysterectomy on the department.

    The thing here is there are probably more black on white killings, but people don’t see police anymore, just para military organizations with military gear.

    • That’s the thing. I’m allowed to dislike violent ghetto trash and their idiot lefty fans and also have a problem with thug cops who think they’re above the law. It’s not an either/or.

      I don’t see the problem of militarized police in terms of race, particularly.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Selective cops with good judgment (those that are a bit harsh on the ghetto trash) I don’t have any problem with how they do things.
        That is why I like the police force in my town and why they are hated in surrounding towns.
        Oh well, sucks to be them!

    She is a latin immigrant and her children are african american? Wow I would have thought they were mixed race, african american genes are really strong when they can completely eliminate other donor genes……..

  • Uncle_Waspy

    Considering the murderous nature of white cops, perhaps Latin mom would prefer to return to her point of origin….those paradises on earth like Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, etc.
