Back to Bedlam: Violent crime has shot up due to the nonstop war on cops waged by Shaun King, Black Lives Matter, and the ACLU.

Will the anti-cop Left please figure out what it wants? For more than a decade, activists have demanded the end of proactive policing, claiming that it was racist. Pedestrian stops—otherwise known as stop, question, and frisk—were attacked as a bigoted oppression of minority communities. In March 2015, for example, the ACLU of Illinois accused the Chicago Police Department of “targeting” minorities because stops are “disproportionately concentrated in the black community.”

Equally vilified was Broken Windows policing, which responds to low-level offenses such as graffiti, disorderly conduct, and turnstile jumping. Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King launched a petition after the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, demanding that Attorney General Eric Holder “meet with local black and brown youth across the country who are dealing with ‘Zero Tolerance’ and ‘Broken Windows’ policing.”

Well, the police got the message.

    Pretty soon the cops will just let the Blacks kill each other.
    One law for Natives .
    One law for Blacks .
    One law for Muslims .

    And Real Law for the rest of us poor suckers.

    “Black culture” that glorifies thuggery is the problem.

    I really like when females have multiple kids and no Daddy in sight—
    Just the welfare check man.
    Just for the record—- I don’t want one of my tax dollars going to support your little pica ninny.

    We keep falling into the same intellectual trap when dealing with leftards like Shaun King: we assume that there is some thread of logic and coherency to what they do and say.

    Oh, we don’t doubt that many of their premises are flawed and their goals are impossibly utopian, but we still expect them to pursue their agendas in some kind of consistent manner. We think they have a plan that at least appears rational on its surface. We keep looking for a pattern, the twisted reasoning that will let us decipher and predict them. We keep trying to understand how they think.

    There is nothing there to find. There is no logic, not even warped. There is only impulse and momentary whims.

    Just more proof that society needs to be reset.

    They’re not like us. Most of them belong in a quiet African village with strong family ties and cultural traditions. Expecting them to think like whites is a cruel joke on them and us and the more we pretend we’re the same the worse it will get. Look at Obama. The Americans trusted him to run a government that administered to the needs of the US, but once in power he reverted to the tribal politics that are coded in his genetics. He’s a vile racist who consults with black criminals to advise on changes to the justice system, shuns previous white allies and embraces our enemies, sides with blacks in any confrontation with whites, sides with Muslims in everything and vacations like a third-world potentate while doubling the country’s debt. He the very epitome of the African in the term African-American.
