Thousands rally across US after Ferguson decision
11/24/14

Thousands of people rallied late Monday in U.S. cities including Los Angeles and New York to passionately but peacefully protest a grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer who killed a black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

They led marches, waved signs and shouted chants of "Hands Up! Don't Shoot," the slogan that has become a rallying cry in protests over police killings across the country.

Activists had been planning to protest even before the nighttime announcement that Officer Darren Wilson will not be charged in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

The racially charged case in Ferguson has inflamed tensions and reignited debates over police-community relations even in cities hundreds of miles from the predominantly black St. Louis suburb. For many staging protests Monday, the shooting was personal, calling to mind other galvanizing encounters with local law enforcement.

Police departments in several major cities said they were bracing for large demonstrations with the potential for the kind of violence that marred nightly protests in Ferguson after Brown's killing. Demonstrators there vandalized police cars, hugged barricades and taunted officers with expletives Monday night while police fired smoke canisters and pepper spray. Gunshots were heard on the streets.

But police elsewhere reported that gatherings were mostly peaceful immediately following Monday's announcement.

About 100 people holding signs that read "The People Say Guilty!" blocked an intersection in downtown Oakland, California, after a line of police officers stopped them from getting on a highway on-ramp. Minutes earlier, some of the protesters lay on the ground while others outlined their bodies in chalk. A similar scene unfolded in Seattle as dozens of police officers watched.

Several hundred people marched through downtown Philadelphia with a large contingent of police nearby.

"Mike Brown is an emblem (of a movement). This country is at its boiling point," said Ethan Jury, a protester in Philadelphia. "How many people need to die? How many black people need to die?"

Several hundred people who had gathered in Manhattan's Union Square to watch the announcement marched peacefully to Times Square after the family of Eric Garner, a Staten Island man killed by a police chokehold earlier this year, joined the Rev. Al Sharpton at a speech lamenting the grand jury's decision.

In Los Angeles, which was rocked by riots in 1992 after the acquittal of police officers in the videotaped beating of Rodney King, police officers were told to remain on duty until released by their supervisors. About 100 people gathered in Leimert Park while others held a small news conference demanding changes in police policies.

A splinter group of about 30 people broke away and marched through surrounding streets, blocking intersections, but the demonstrations remained mostly small and peaceful.

Chris Manor, with Utah Against Police Brutality, helped organize an event in Salt Lake City that attracted about 35 people.

"There are things that have affected us locally, but at the same time, it's important to show solidarity with people in other cities who are facing the very same thing that we're facing," Manor said.

In Denver, where a civil jury last month found deputies used excessive force in the death of a homeless street preacher, clergy gathered at a church to discuss the decision, and dozens of people rallied in a downtown park with a moment of silence.

At Cleveland's Public Square, at least a dozen protesters held signs Monday afternoon and chanted "Hands up, don't shoot," which has become a rallying cry since the Ferguson shooting. Their signs referenced police shootings that have shaken the community there, including Saturday's fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who had a fake gun at a Cleveland playground when officers confronted him.

A few hundred people marched from Chicago police headquarters toward downtown after hearing the Ferguson decision, using profanity but causing no damage. Police on bicycles, horseback and in squad cars closed portions of roads along the protesters' route.

Communist, Palestinian Groups Join Ferguson Protesters In Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore. (CBS Seattle/AP) — Police in Portland used pepper spray and arrested seven people after hundreds of demonstrators roamed the city and blocked traffic Tuesday night while protesting a grand jury decision not to indict a Missouri police officer in the killing of an 18-year-old.

The arrests involved a splinter group that broke away after a peaceful downtown demonstration that involved about 1,000 people, police said.

The smaller group of about 300 marched across a major Willamette River bridge into east Portland, disrupting traffic. Sgt. Pete Simpson said one driver was punched in the face by a protester who disappeared into the crowd. The driver was not seriously injured.

Protesters also marched onto Interstate 5, where some tossed rocks and bottles at police, Simpson said. That’s when officers used pepper spray and made several arrests. The freeway was clear within about 10 minutes, the spokesman said.

Those arrested were accused of offenses including disorderly conduct and interfering with an officer.

Bus and light rail traffic was disrupted.

“No justice, no peace,” protesters chanted, “no racist police.”

Several confrontations briefly elevated into skirmishes. At one point on the Hawthorne Bridge, which police were blocking, a police officer on a motorcycle repeatedly ran his bike into the legs of a protester, who continued to stand in his way.

The incident drew a crowd of protesters who accused the officer of assault. The officer quickly left the area.

The protest had many elements of the Occupy Portland movement, which galvanized protesters in the city and formed a network of people who still communicate via mass text message.

As with Occupy, the vast majority of protesters preached peace, but a fringe group of people — some covering their faces with black bandannas — advocated violence and confrontations with police. And like Occupy, the original protest drew a disparate group of people together, not all of whom agreed with one another.

Military veterans called for peace, a communist group called for the overthrow of capitalism, and a group calling for a Palestinian state all held court during a series of speeches on the steps of the state Justice Center in Portland.

Portland is perhaps as primed as any city in the country to protest police actions. The Portland Police Bureau has endured scrutiny by the U.S. Department of Justice, which has criticized the bureau’s treatment of the mentally ill.

The department has had violent, sometimes fatal, confrontations with the mentally ill and the black community, highlighted in the documentary “Alien Boy,” about the death of a homeless man in police custody.

In many parts of the country, Tuesday was the second day of protests over the Ferguson, Missouri, decision.

For many, the shooting of Michael Brown, who was black, by Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, recalled other troubling encounters with law enforcement. The refrain “hands up, don’t shoot” became a rallying cry over police killings nationwide.

In Eugene, more than 200 people gathered downtown for a Tuesday evening vigil to remember the life of Michael Brown and voice their support for changes in law enforcement practices.

“We’ve gone to sleep over the years,” said Eugene City Councilor Greg Evans, one of several speakers. “We’ve gotten into a cult of worshipping Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. over the years instead of doing his work.”

Evans, who is black, said he has been racially profiled in Eugene many times and worries for his four sons.

“Michael Brown could have been your son, he could have been my son,” Evans said.

In Salem, about 50 chanting protesters gathered earlier Tuesday at the city’s police headquarters. The police station in Oregon’s capital city is at City Hall, and the protesters walked in a circle at the building’s plaza.

In Ferguson, Mo., 44 people were arrested in a second night of protests.

US protesters march against police slayings of black men
12/21/14

WASHINGTON (AP) — Demonstrators nationwide protesting the fatal shootings of unarmed black men killed by police chanted "I can't breathe!" ''Hands up, don't shoot!" and waved signs that read "Black lives matter!" as family members of three victims packed a stage in front of the U.S. Capitol, urging thousands of supportive marchers to keep pressing for changes to the criminal justice system.

The march in Washington on Saturday — attended by family members for Michael Brown and Eric Garner, who were killed by police in recent months, and Amadou Diallo, who was fatally shot by police more than 15 years ago — coincided with nationwide demonstrations that spanned from iconic Fifth Avenue in New York to the streets of San Francisco and the steps of the Boston Statehouse. Most were peaceful protests, although about two dozen people were arrested in the Massachusetts capital for disorderly conduct.

"My husband was a quiet man, but he's making a lot of noise right now," said Washington protest marcher Esaw Garner, widow of Eric Garner, 43, who died in July after being put in a chokehold by New York City police during an arrest for allegedly selling loose, untaxed cigarettes.

"His voice will be heard. I have five children in this world and we are fighting not just for him but for everybody's future, for everybody's past, for everybody's present, and we need to make it strong."

Nationally, chanting demonstrators also staged "die-ins" as they lay down across intersections and in one city briefly scuffled with police blocking an onramp to a highway.

New York City police said two officers were assaulted by protesters on the Brooklyn Bridge when they tried to arrest a man who was attempting to toss a garbage can onto police officers below. Some marchers then blocked traffic on the bridge for about an hour. Police said the officers were treated for bumps and bruises, including a broken nose. Police say there have been no arrests in that incident, but a backpack full of hammers and a mask was found.

Organizers had predicted 5,000 people at the Washington march, but the crowd appeared to far outnumber that. They later said they believed as many as 25,000 had shown up. It was not possible to verify the numbers; Washington police do not release crowd estimates.

"It's just so overwhelming to see all who have come to stand with us today," she said. "I mean, look at the masses. Black, white, all races, all religions. ... We need to stand like this at all times."

Joining the Garners in Washington were speakers from the family of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old killed in Ohio as he played with a pellet gun in a park, and the mother of Amadou Diallo, who in 1999 was shot and killed in the Bronx by four New York City police officers.

Diallo's mother, Kadiatou Diallo, reflected on how the same issues being debated today were debated when her son was killed more than 15 years ago.

"We've been there so many times," she said. "Today we are standing still and demanding the same thing."

The Rev. Al Sharpton helped organize the marches.

"Members of Congress, beware we're serious ...," Sharpton said in Washington. "When you get a ring-ding on Christmas, it might not be Santa; it may be Rev. Al coming to your house."

Several speakers asked the crowd to chant, "I can't breathe." Garner, 43, had gasped those words before his death. Some protesters also wore those words on shirts.

Protests — some violent — have occurred around the nation since grand juries last month declined to indict the officers involved in the deaths of Garner and Michael Brown, 18, shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. Before the crowd started marching, Sharpton directed, "Don't let no provocateurs get you out of line. ... We are not here to play big shot. We are here to win."

Washington, D.C., and U.S. Park Police said they had made no arrests in the capital protests, though a small group of protesters split off after the march and briefly occupied various intersections in downtown Washington. In Boston, about two dozen people were arrested for disorderly conduct after scuffling with officers blocking an Interstate 93 onramp near the Nashua Street Jail.

The noisy march through the heart of Manhattan swelled to at least 25,000 people, police said. It snarled traffic but remained peaceful, with no arrests reported by late afternoon. On Saturday night, some protesters marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, blocking traffic in both directions.

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of San Francisco and Oakland on Saturday. Oakland police said at least 45 people were arrested for crimes such as vandalism, failure to disperse and resisting arrest following a largely peaceful protest. Meanwhile, at the University of California, Berkeley, police removed life-sized photographs of lynching victims that had been hung at the campus. Investigators believe they were connected to a smaller protest in Berkeley at noon. Berkeley protest organizers said they didn't know where they came from.

"We hope that it's someone who wanted to bring attention to the issue," said one of the organizers, Spencer Pritchard.

In New York, the thousands of demonstrators included family members of people killed by New York City police going back decades.

Donna Carter, 54, marched with her boyfriend, whose teenage son was shot and killed by police in the 1990s while carrying a toy gun.

"It's good to see people of all colors here to say enough is enough," said Carter, who's black. "I'm a parent and every child that's killed feels like my child."

Others were there to show their outrage, including Rich Alexandro, 47, who carried a handmade sign with dozens of names of victims of police killings in which officers were never charged.

"It just seems like the cops are Teflon," Alexandro said. "There's no justice."

On the eve of Saturday's nationwide protests, demonstrators in Nashville, Tennessee, staged "die-ins" in the country music capital's honky-tonk district Friday night while tourists took their pictures.

Politicians and others have talked about the need for better police training, body cameras and changes in the grand jury process to restore faith in the legal system.

Terry Baisden, 52, of Baltimore said she is "hopeful change is coming" and that the movement is not part of a fleeting flash of anger.

She said she hasn't protested before but felt compelled to because "changes in action, changes in belief, happen in numbers."

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said the Washington march was peaceful. She mingled with the crowd and said she wanted to show solidarity with the marchers.

"This is one of the most well-organized events I've seen," Lanier said.

Other groups including Ferguson Action conducted "Day of Resistance" movements all around the country.

100 Teens Rush Theater After Being Denied Entry to 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

February 16, 2015

Love was not in the air for a large group of ticketless teens at a Florida movie theater on Valentine's Day.

On Feb. 14, officers responded to numerous calls around 10 p.m. from patrons and staff at the AMC theater in West Oaks Mall in Ocoee, Fla., complaining that a group of 100 male and female teens burst through the doors when they were denied tickets to R-rated Fifty Shades of Grey.

"There's a whole bunch of kids that tried to get rated-R tickets. So we sold out all PG-13 movies, and they just started to run in, and it's a whole bunch of them," reported a supervisor at the theater in a call to the police. "I mean, we're trying to control it by shutting one side of the gates and trying to get them out, but there's just so many of them ... mall security is even trying to help, but it's just not enough."

R-rated films require that a guardian over the age of 18 accompanies the minor to the film. Because the theater was sold out of tickets for all PG-13 films, the teens were denied ticket sales.

Following this, the 100 teens stormed the movie theater without purchasing entry.

Moviegoers who purchased tickets also called police, reporting their fears about leaving their respective theaters and also inquiring about reimbursement for the disturbance.

"There's a bunch of — about 35 teenagers running in and out of the movie threatening people. ... There's no control here," reported one ticket holder to the police while still in the theater. "They were saying, 'Shut the -— --, or I'm going to kill you.' ... I'm trying to get out, and I don't feel comfortable leaving the theater."

Officers arrived at the theater and dispersed the group, arresting one juvenile for battery and resisting an officer without violence.

West Oaks Mall announced on Monday that unaccompanied minors under the age of 17 are no longer allowed in the mall after 9 p.m. The mall told Daily Mail that the rule will go into effect immediately.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1Peter 4:3  For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
1Pe 4:4  Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
1Pe 4:5  Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

Civil Unrest Has Begun In Baltimore And This Is Only Just The Start Of Something MUCH Bigger

On Saturday night, the city of Baltimore resembled a warzone as protests over the death of Freddie Gray turned wildly violent.  One eyewitness reported watching the streets around him and his friend “turn into madness” as they left a baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles.  Car windows were smashed, stores were robbed, chairs were thrown and large numbers of random bystanders were attacked.  One prominent Democrat claims that those committing the violence were “mainly from out of town“, but how would he know that?  Today, there are approximately 2.7 million people living in the Baltimore metropolitan area.  It is an area that has been known for poverty, crime and drugs for many years, and as racial tensions continue to increase in this country it is a powder keg that could erupt at literally any time.  We got a preview of what can happen on Saturday night.  If this is how people will act while economic conditions are still relatively stable in this country, what in the world is going to happen when things really start falling apart?

On Saturday, April 11th, I delivered a presentation down in Dallas, Texas in which I warned about the rioting and civil unrest that are soon coming to this nation.  On slide number 145 of the presentation, I specifically named the city of Baltimore as one of the cities where this would happen.  But I had no idea that the rioting in Baltimore would begin so quickly.  And the violence that we saw on Saturday night was at a level that was quite shocking.  The following is how the Daily Mail described some of the chaos that ensued…

    Local news captured live footage of a man throwing a flaming trash can at the police line.

    A group of roughly 100 protesters broke out a window of a department store with a chair they got at a restaurant across the street at The Gallery, a downtown shopping mall.

    The same group broke the windows of restaurants including a Subway sandwich shop near Camden Yards, tossing chairs and tables through the glass.

    Protesters also engaged with a group of Orioles fans at Slider’s Bar and Grille and began fighting with patrons.

This kind of thing is not supposed to happen in America.

But it is happening.  Ferguson set the precedent, and now this is going to spread all over the country.

You can see some excellent photographs of the chaos that happened in Baltimore right here, and in the video posted below several young thugs smash out the front window of a police cruiser as dozens of onlookers cheer them on…

I also want to share with you another video, but I need to warn you about it first.  This YouTube video strings together a bunch of clips of some of the worst of the violence, but it also contains some very graphic language.  So please don’t let any young children watch this.  I felt that it was important to share this because we need to really understand what is happening to our cities.  America is changing, and not for the better.  This is what social decay looks like…

Are you starting to get the picture?

Things were so bad outside of the stadium where the Baltimore Orioles play that some of the Orioles actually thought about spending the night inside the clubhouse.

One of the things that is being ignored by many in the mainstream media is that fact that one of the key organizers of the Baltimore protests is a former national chairman of the New Black Panther Party named Malik Shabazz.  These days, he is the president of an organization known as “Black Lawyers for Justice”, but he is definitely still up to his old tricks.  The following is an excerpt from an article about the Baltimore riots in the New York Times…

    There, Malik Shabazz, president of Black Lawyers for Justice, a Washington, D.C.-based group that called for the demonstration and advertised it on social media, told the crowd that he would release them in an hour, adding: “Shut it down if you want to! Shut it down!”

    Mr. Shabazz said in a later interview that his rhetoric was intended only to encourage civil disobedience — not violence — but added that he was “not surprised” by the scattered angry outbursts because people here “haven’t received justice.”

If you are marching for “justice”, you don’t throw objects at random bystanders, loot stores or attack vehicles that are just driving through the area.  But all of those things happened on Saturday night.  The following is how an eyewitness described one of the most harrowing attacks…

    The crowd of protesters then stopped a blue station wagon carrying a white family as they tried to drive past Pickles, Bullpen and Sliders along a narrow one-way stretch between the bars and the main road. As a horde of them smashed their open and closed fists on the hood of the car—while impeding them by standing in front of them—the driver backed up on the one way pass in a desperate attempt to get out of dodge. Then, stopped on the other side with nowhere to go, protesters ripped open the passenger door of the car and began reaching around inside the vehicle. As hundreds of people looked on, including several police officers who didn’t engage the violent protesters, the white woman in the front seat—middle-aged and a little heavyset with dark hair—was visibly terrified. The group of black men who ripped open the car door suddenly realized they were separated from the larger group of protesters and abandoned their quest to seemingly either carjack the station wagon or rob the people inside in front of hundreds, driving out of the one-way street back onto the main road and presumably out of dodge.

Of course all of this did not just erupt out of a vacuum.  Racial tensions on all sides have been stirred up by the mainstream media, by our politicians, and by other prominent national leaders for years.  At this point, even pastors are inflaming the tensions…

    Activist Jamal Bryant, pastor of Empowerment Temple AME Church, told his congregation Sunday that “somebody is going to have to pay” for Gray’s death, the Associated Press reported.

    If “you’re black in America, your life is always under threat,” Bryant said.

Why can’t we all just learn to love one another, forgive one another, and peacefully come up with some solutions that are going to work for all of us?

Sadly, all of this hate and anger is just another sign of the social decay that is eating away at the foundations of our society like a cancer.

And if people are willing to act like this when our economy is still relatively stable and things are still relatively good in this nation, what are they going to do when they don’t have any money in their pockets and they don’t know where their next meal is going to come from?

What we witnessed in Baltimore on Saturday night is just the beginning.

Much worse is coming, and eventually we are going to see tremendous civil unrest and rioting all over this nation.

The city of Baltimore has been transformed into an “absolute war zone“, and the governor of Maryland has declared a state of emergency as the rioting in “Charm City” continues to escalate.  The funeral for Freddie Gray has unleashed a firestorm of violence, and none of it is going to do anyone any good.  To their credit, some of the leaders of the African-American community are standing up and loudly condemning the violence.  They know that smashing cars, throwing rocks at police and looting stores is not going to solve anything.  But just like we saw in Ferguson, there are lots of people out there that are ready to riot, loot and set things on fire at the drop of a hat – all they need is an opportunity.  The social decay that has been eating away at the foundations of our society for generations is now manifesting in some very ugly ways.  We have raised an entire generation of young people in a “value free” environment, and now we are getting to experience some of the consequences of our foolishness.  And what we are witnessing in Baltimore right now is just the start.  Eventually, we are going to see scenes like this all over the nation.

Thanks to social media, the violence that we saw in Baltimore on Monday is being broadcast to the entire planet.  The whole world is getting a really good look at what the decline of America looks like.  The following is how the New York Times described what took place…

    Angry youths could be seen surrounding a police cruiser and smashing its windows in what police described as an organized attack by criminals — not demonstrators. Cars were set on fire, and stores’ windows were smashed in. Heavy smoke poured out of a CVS drugstore, which had earlier been overrun by looters. Several other businesses, including a liquor store and a check-cashing shop, were also looted.

You can find some incredible photos of looting in progress right here.  Do those young people believe that they are actually doing something constructive that will make a difference in our society?  Of course not.  They are opportunists that are taking advantage of the chaos to commit crime.

And you know what?  A lot of older African-Americans were absolutely disgusted by what they were seeing.  The following is just one example…

    Barbara Taylor, 60, has lived in the neighborhood near the store for 15 years. As she spoke, a group of teenagers carrying cases of soda and Arizona Iced Tea walked by. “All I can see is crime,” said Taylor. “The people doing this don’t live around here. They’re kids coming in to our neighborhood and breaking it apart. There is no reason for this.”

Of course the biggest targets on Monday were police officers.  It is becoming extremely dangerous to be a police officer in America today, and this is something that I wrote an entire article about recently.  During the violence on Monday, seven police officers were seriously injured.  At least some of the injured had broken bones, and one was described as being “unresponsive”…

    “We have seven officers who were injured during the course of this,” said Baltimore Police Capt. Eric Kowalczyk. “They have broken bones, one of them is unresponsive. This is not okay. Our officers went out to that situation to make sure that the people who live in that community were safe and we’re going to continue to do what we can to make sure that those people stay safe.

    “It’s a group of lawless individuals,” Kowalczyk said of the rioters. “What we know is that they are a group of criminals with no regard for the people in the community.”

Later on Monday, we found out that a total of 15 police officers had received some sort of injury during the course of the day.  To say that the streets of Baltimore have become a “war zone” is not an overstatement in the least.

This is what America is becoming, and this is only just the beginning.  As I mentioned yesterday, I went on the record publicly regarding my belief that civil unrest was coming specifically to Baltimore during a speech I gave on the evening of April 11th.  That was about a week before Freddie Gray died.  But little did I know that it would start happening before the end of the month.  The following are some tweets that contain scenes from the violence that we witnessed on Monday…

Make sure to watch that last video.  It shows a man literally being dragged out of his store and ruthlessly beaten by a gang of young thugs.  Because of the decisions that we have made as a society, this is what the future of our country is going to look like.  This is something that I have been warning about for years, and now it is here.

So let us mourn for America, because the nation that so many of us love is slipping away a little bit more every single day.

Baltimore today, America tomorrow: Why "utter chaos" will soon erupt across more U.S. cities

Baltimore is in a state of "utter chaos" and Gov. Larry Hogan has now declared a state of emergency and called for troops on the streets to halt the spiraling looting and violence.

The pro baseball game has been postponed, rioters are attacking police cars, and protesters managed to loot a CVS pharmacy then burn it to the ground. When firefighters arrived on scene to extinguish the fire, more gang bangers punctured the fire hose to cause a loss of water pressure.

Threats have been made against local police departments, and gang bangers circulated a flier that called for a "purge" of law enforcement -- seemingly a call for the mass murder of police officers. The city is being "destroyed by thugs," according to its Mayor.

"Three of the city's most violent and dangerous gangs - Black Guerrilla Family, Crips and Blood - have announced an unprecedented alliance to 'take out' law enforcement officers, in a move that has prompted fears for police safety across the country," reports the Daily Mail. (An international news publisher that almost always tells more truth than the U.S. mainstream media.)

In response to all this, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake literally told the police department to "...give those who wished to destroy [the] space to do that."

As new of her statement spread -- and the condemnations kicked in -- she quickly issued a clarification statement which said:

The mayor is not saying that she asked police to give space to people who sought to create violence. Any suggestion otherwise would be a misinterpretation of her statement.

The Baltimore riots are not merely a Baltimore problem; they're a nationwide policy brutality problem
But the real story here is that this riot is not merely a Baltimore problem. It's a nationwide problem. It just so happens that the black people of Baltimore are sick and tired of a militarized police force -- an apparent goon squad of chemically-altered 'roid heads -- beating the life out of their young adults (and severing their spines and killing them in police custody).

Can you blame them for the outrage? No matter what your race, it's now obvious that police brutality is an endemic problem in America. This is not just another "isolated event." It's clearly a reflection of a culture of police brutality that for some reason seems to be disproportionately focused on young African-American males.

As the following image depicts, police in America have gone from being polite public servants to rogue villains donning black masks and military gear swiped from the era of Nazi storm troopers:

Cops are unconsciously playing out their roles as brutal enforcers
What almost nobody seems to understand is the power of role playing when wearing all this militarized gear. As numerous psychological experiments have shown over the years -- most notably the Stanford Prison Experiment -- people automatically and unconsciously take on the roles they have been handed; and such roles are reinforced by the gear and clothing they are asked to wear.

If you dress up somebody like a cruel, thuggish prison guard and put him in charge of prisoners, he will very quickly become cruel and thuggish, even committing physical violence against those prisoners.

This is what's happening today all across America in nearly every police department. Cops are being dressed up like storm trooper assault teams, complete with black masks, "shock troop" body pads and aggressive weapons that used to only exist on the front lines of war. They take these weapons and these attitudes and turn them against the American people, with disastrous results.

This is no longer community policing. It's increasingly a war against the citizens.

Why black Americans now see attacking cops to be a form of self-defense - this is NOT something I condone, I'm only explaining it...
Today, black America genuinely feels like it is under attack by a "legalized gang" of villains who happen to carry badges. In the minds of many black Americans, attacking the police is not an act of aggression but an act of self-defense. (I'm not condoning it, mind you, just explaining the perception behind it for some people.)

In truth, as long as community policing is approached from an aggressive confrontational posture on the part of the police, they are going to foment reactionary violence among the citizenry. This, I believe, is the thinking behind the Baltimore Mayor's poorly-chosen words when she explained the protesters needed to be "given space" to destroy things. (The Mayor is African-American.)

We need quality community peace officers; not all cops are bad!
Just to throw another twist at you in all this, I'm pro police! In fact, I helped train police officers in Arizona in weapon defense skills, and I served for two years as a board member of a non-profit foundation that sought to provide lifesaving gear to officers on the street. I was given an award by the Chief of Police of a prominent Arizona city, and I donated my own private funds to help local cops -- many of whom were woefully underpaid and utterly lacking the safety gear they needed to more effectively do their jobs.

The police I met and interacted with there were highly professional peace officers. And across America, there are many police departments where law enforcement officers are upstanding, hardworking professionals who do a damn good job of keeping the peace, especially given the budget restrictions that almost universally plague local police departments everywhere.

But there are also crooked, militant police departments that exist in America, and they are dominated by 'roid head cops who are truly a danger to society. These rogue cops "get off" on their power trips, running around like criminal egomaniacs, protected by the power of the badge. It is these cops who rob drug dealers to steal their cash; pull over innocent drivers so they can sexually molest them; and exhibit extreme brutality in the arrest and detainment of individual citizens, just as we recently saw in Baltimore.

The real problem with policing in America today is that it takes place in a hoo-rah culture of steroid-induced aggression and a military-inspired stance of aggression. As long as cops are trained in a combative, confrontational context, they will act out their training on the streets of America, often at great cost to the public perception of police and civility in general.

In other words, bad policing breeds confrontational violence with the citizenry, further reinforcing a spiral of violence that has led to the alarming militarization of police departments across America.

That's why the title of this article explains this problem is not a Baltimore problem. And it's not limited to Baltimore, either: similar confrontations between police and citizens are going to continue to escalate across America, leaping from city to city and frequently exploding out of control. The way to stop this is not to turn America into a police state with troops on the streets, but rather to change the culture of policing into one that's less confrontational, less militaristic and more collaborative with local communities.

Smart policing is hard work. You can't keep the peace with tear gas and rubber bullets. It takes dedicated peace officers building trust with local communities and working incessantly to treat citizens with dignity, even if they are being arrested for an apparent crime.

When I trained with cops in Arizona, everybody was taught to de-escalate the violence
What happened to de-escalation training in America? When I trained with cops in Arizona, we used to gather in a padded room where we were given "DT training." That stands for "Defensive Tactics," and it was basically a hand-to-hand combat training room where cops were trained to de-escalate the violence while simultaneously protecting their own lives.

In fact, I was present during one of the very first days of a "basic training" camp for would-be cops, and one of the first exercises I saw was the pairing up of candidates who were instructed to literally "beat the crap out of each other" until one of them gave up and screamed for help.

This exercise, I was told, was used to weed out recruits who were too weak willed to keep fighting when the odds were stacked against them. Police departments don't want cops who give up and surrender; they want cops who will keep fighting for their survival down to the very last second.

But at the same time, they also want cops who don't relish physical violence. So good police training always involves instruction in de-escalating violence through a variety of tactics. For example, a law enforcement officer's first tool of de-escalation isn't his gun but rather his VOICE. Police are rightly taught to use clear, concise, direct and authoritative voice commands to dissuade people from violent actions or intent.

A properly trained police officer, in other words, almost never needs to use violence to resolve a problem. The combination of their voice, the presence of their partner (or backup support from additional cops), and the mere presence of their firearm should be more than enough to dissuade any conscious person to rethink their actions. When those tactics fail, cops are trained in what are essentially simplified martial arts techniques to control the hands of the suspect, disarm a suspect, or disable a suspect.

I say all of this to support the following point: No cop should ever need to beat the life out of a suspect in order to apprehend them. Any cop that has to resort to such extreme violence is either a poorly trained cop or someone who seeks out violence and uses his badge as an excuse to commit it. There is absolutely no excuse for the kind of treatment by cops that led to the death of Gray in Baltimore. At every level, that outcome is an outright condemnation of what can only be characterized as "****-poor training" of Baltimore cops.

When you master the art of strategically applied violence, you do not need to instigate violence in order to stop violence
Good cops are trained in the art of strategically applied violence in order to de-escalate violence when they encounter it. Similarly, I am trained in tactical handgun combat skills so that I never need to shoot anyone except as a last resort lifesaving option. The more you master the skills of applied martial arts, hand-to-hand combat or handgun combat, the less you should ever need to use them against another person.

The very highest masters of martial arts are the world's most peaceful people. They never start fights, they never escalate violence, and if violence comes to them, they have the skills to end the violence without even causing harm to the instigator. That's the true measure of a master: their ability to end violence without contributing to it. As a good example of this, you don't see high level professional MMR fighters walking into bars and starting fights. They don't need to prove anything in a bar fight, and if violence comes to them, they will END IT quickly and efficiently. Similarly, self-defense arts such as Krav Maga teach students to very quickly end violence so that violence does not escalate.

If only our police were taught these principles, we might have a chance of avoiding more eruptions of rioting and chaos across our cities. But I fear we are already too far gone. America has in many ways devolved into a nation of suspicion, aggression and cultural distrust. The burning of her cities is merely the inevitable result of cultural memes which have already been set into motion... and which almost certainly cannot be stopped until they play out.

My advice to Natural News readers is to become proficient in the physical arts of self-defense so that you can, if needed, contribute to the de-escalation of violence and the protection of the innocent. Start with Krav Maga if you want real hand-to-hand defense skills that can help de-escalate violence and even help prevent rapes. Krav is a favorite among women, and it is especially useful for **** prevention for the simple reason that no man can **** you after his balls have been forcefully relocated to the region near his tonsils…

The United States Is On The Precipice Of Widespread Civil Unrest

civil war!! Snowflakes vs conservatives... guess who wins?  Cheesy

It doesn’t take much of a trigger to push extremely large crowds of very angry protesters into committing acts of rioting and violence.  And rioting and violence can ultimately lead to widespread civil unrest and calls for “revolution”.  The election of Donald Trump was perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and we have already seen that a single move by Trump can literally cause protests to erupt from coast to coast within 48 hours.  On Friday, Trump signed an executive order that banned refugees from Syria indefinitely and that placed a 90 day ban on travel to the United States for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.  Within hours, protesters began to storm major airports, and by Sunday very large crowds were taking to the streets all over the country…

    From Seattle to Newark, Houston to Boston, hundreds jammed airport terminals — lawyers, immigration advocates, ordinary citizens compelled to the front lines, many refusing to leave until those who had been detained by U.S. Customs had been freed or had obtained legal counsel.

    On Sunday, the movement caught fire and demonstrations and rallies erupted in communities across the U.S. from city halls to airports to parks. In the nation’s capital, the site of the march that drew a crushing 500,000 people Jan. 21, Pennsylvania Avenue was shut down Sunday as thousands trekked from the White House to the U.S. Capitol. An energized crowd stopped outside Trump’s showcase hotel along the avenue to shake fists and chant “shame.”

You can see some really good pictures of the protests going on around the nation right here.

As I was going through articles about these protests today, I remember one woman holding up a sign that said “Remove Trump By Any Means Necessary”.

It doesn’t take much imagination to figure out what she was suggesting.

Visions of violence are dancing in the heads of these very frustrated people, and they are being egged on by top members of Congress such as Chuck Schumer…

    ‘These orders go against what America has always been about,’ Schumer told the crowd in Battery Park according to the New York Daily News. ‘The orders make us less humanitarian, less safe, less American and when it comes to making us less safe people forget this, that’s why so many of our military, intelligence, security, and law enforcement leaders are opposed to this order and all those like it.’

    Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Trump’s presidential rival, Hillary, tweeted a picture from the rally. It was captioned: ‘Yes. We will keep standing up for a country that matches our values and ideals for all. #NewYork #NoBanNoWall.’

On Sunday, President Trump attempted to clarify what his executive order was really about and make it clear that it was not a ban on all Muslims.  The following comes from CNN…

    President Donald Trump insisted Sunday his travel ban on certain Muslim-majority nations would protect the United States from terrorists, after a weekend of outrage and confusion over the move.

    In an afternoon statement, Trump wrote the country would continue showing “compassion to those fleeing oppression.”

Unfortunately, polls show that somewhere around a third of the country greatly dislikes Trump, and those people are more than ready to believe that Trump is a racist bigot that hates all Muslims.

But the truth is that Trump does not hate any group of people.  His target is simply Islamic terror, and he is actually pro-immigration as long as it is legal immigration.

Let us not forget that his wife is a legal immigrant.

I know that Trump is quite eager to get things done, but putting out this executive order at this particular moment was definitely a case of poor timing.

We are a nation that is deeply, deeply divided, and now this latest controversy threatens to divide us even further.

When I was out earlier today, I saw a pro-Trump billboard that some business owner had put up that was urging liberals to quit their whining.

On the surface that may sound funny, but it definitely doesn’t do anything to bring us together.

If you give anger enough fuel, eventually it leads to violence.  I am certainly not suggesting that we should ever compromise on what we believe, but what I am suggesting is that there is a wise way to handle things and an unwise way to handle things.

Someday, widespread civil unrest is going to sweep across the United States and major American cities will burn.

My hope is that we can put this off for as long as possible.

In fact, I sincerely hope that this will not happen at all during the Trump/Pence era.

But you would have to be blind not to see the hate, anger and frustration that are all growing like cancer in the hearts of our young people.

This is a time for the peacemakers.  If there are any left in Washington, we need them to rise up now and try to bring healing before it is too late.
