"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere".

Image result for ferguson riots"WASHINGTON (AP) — A Justice Department investigation found sweeping patterns of racial bias within the Ferguson, Missouri, police department, with officers routinely discriminating against blacks by using excessive force, issuing petty citations and making baseless traffic stops, according to law enforcement officials familiar with its findings.

The report, which Ferguson city officials said would be released Wednesday, marks the culmination of a months-long investigation into a police department that federal officials have described as troubled and that commanded national attention after one of its officers shot and killed an unarmed black man, 18-year-old Michael Brown, last summer.

 
It chronicles discriminatory practices across the city's criminal justice system, detailing problems from initial encounters with patrol officers to treatment in the municipal court and jail. Federal law enforcement officials described its contents on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly before the report is released.

Past federal investigations of local police departments have encouraged overhauls of fundamental police procedures such as traffic stops and the use of service weapons. The Justice Department maintains the right to sue police departments that resist making changes.

The city of Ferguson released a statement acknowledging that Justice Department officials supplied a copy of the report to the mayor, city manager, police chief and city attorney during a private meeting Tuesday in downtown St. Louis. The statement offered no details about the report, which the city said it was reviewing and would discuss Wednesday after the Justice Department makes it public.

The investigation, which began weeks after Brown's killing last August, is being released as Attorney General Eric Holder prepares to leave his job following a six-year tenure that focused largely on civil rights. The findings are based on interviews with police leaders and residents, a review of more than 35,000 pages of police records and analysis of data on stops, searches and arrests.

The review also found that blacks were 68 percent less likely than others to have their cases dismissed by a municipal court judge. And from April to September of last year, 95 percent of people kept at the city jail for more than two days were black, it found.

Of the cases in which the police department documented the use of force, 88 percent involved blacks, and of the 14 dog bites for which racial information is available, all 14 victims were black.

Overall, African-Americans make up 67 percent of the population of Ferguson, about 10 miles north of downtown St. Louis. The police department has been criticized as racially imbalanced and not reflective of the community's demographic makeup. At the time of the shooting, just three of 53 officers were black, though the mayor has said he's trying to create a more diverse police force."

Is the injustice outlined in this Justice Department report limited to Ferguson, Missouri?

For America's sake I hope so.

Wonder if the fact that the vast majority of white residents in Ferguson are of the senior citizen variety. Senior citizens typically are not out speeding while driving or committing crime. I would think that alone would explain the statistics as opposed to the theory of some type of racial component. So sad. Those damn old pesky whites!

Old white people are the worst. Fuck them

Anon 8:53pm, you hit the nail on the head. It's because most of the citizens of Ferguson are seniors and the Blacks are not.

Therefore, that report just proves that Blacks in Ferguson are nothing but trouble and deserve what the PD does to them. Thanks for bringing that thought up. I would have never thought of it that way.

Whites are really smart and they always do the right thing. Must be because of their religion and Jesus Christ. I hear St Peter only let Whites into Heaven.

Blacks need to find another religion!

Field, "Is the injustice outlined in this Justice Department report limited to Ferguson, Missouri?"

Field, if you know anything about American history and the racism that reeks throughout the country, you KNOW that report mirrors all across America.

Quite honestly, there is nothing in that report that's "new". Rodney King? remember him? They got it on tape and what did those wretched evil Whites do?
They held a trial in Orange County where the cops would be set free by an all-White jury.

You see, everything is racial when it comes to Whites. "Doing the right thing" is not part of their character.

Field, "For America's sake I hope so."

My brother, this shit has been going on for centuries and nothing has happened except more killings and harassment of Blacks by the police.

And, Whites support the abuse by the police. Nothing will change and you know it...they are naturally evil.

In order to recruit the young men of the community the police in Ferguson have to go to the high schools in the area and give recruiting chats to the seniors.

Telling them about the duties of officers and the benefits of the job.

Also explain the tests they will be required to take and how best to prepare for them.

They should give a list of all of the documents necessary to apply for the job, as well as offices and addresses where they take their documents.

Only this way will the young men be inspired and feel confident to try for the job.

No way! Blacks would never join ISIS. Hell, Blacks are too afraid to take on the police, let alone join ISIS.

We are a fearful race, not a brave one. Otherwise, things would have been different by now.

Blacks in the bay area have a docile plantation mentality. They go along with whatever the white massa says.

Furthermore, they are uncle toms of the worst kind. They cannot be trusted they are sell-outs, which are the kind of Negroes Whites like you like.

Wesley R said...

If the people in Ferguson want things to change, a report isn't going to do it. What will do it is them getting off of their ass and going to the voting booth.

Anonymous said...

Wesley R, is there any other way than Blacks having to go vote? I mean, you know how we hate to vote.

Surely there must be another way? There has to be. As they say in the community:

"Where there is a will, there is a way." So what's the other way?

Josh said...

If the police department is out of pocket, then, for fuck's sake, knock those fuckers down a peg. But, please, folks need to stop making Michael Brown a victim. The asshole attacked a police officer after robbing a store.

Find one of these supposed victims who were just minding their own to use as the poster child of anti-police sentiment in Ferguson.

The moron didn't have his hands up surrendering. He wasn't "innocent." Being "unarmed" is nothing but a weasel word to imply that he was murdered in cold blood.

Maybe there's nothing you can teach your children about driving an automobile that will help them, if the police are racist and want to pull you over regardless. But you can sure as shit say, "Hey, baby, don't physically attack and then charge like a bull an armed person, particularly a police officer."

"Is the injustice outlined in this Justice Department report limited to Ferguson, Missouri?"

Important question, but the answers must also be approached honestly as they're found. For example, some people have a habit of taking a report like this--and I'll assume it's true--and arguing that this is what "systemic racism" is. However, what's missing here is any indication that police were acting on orders to target blacks, or that they have laws and policies which target blacks. For all intents and purposes, it seems to be the police acting as independent agents in their unfair targeting of blacks.

And that leads to a much needed look--and honest one--at the whole chicken-and-egg thing. Are the police just racist and unfairly targeting blacks, and thus that makes blacks act a little more retarded in Ferguson than elsewhere? Or were the people in Ferguson a little more retarded than elsewhere so the police started getting fed the fuck up with how unruly their black contingent was?

No excuse either way, but it is context.

"...though the mayor has said he's trying to create a more diverse police force."

Yeah. Crying until people are hired only because of their skin color. That's the way to do it! Could it be that very few black people in the area want to become police? Not for nothing, but kids in Suitland weren't dreaming of becoming police officers. That none of them did shouldn't reflect negatively on the police force that didn't hire nonexistent candidates.

Or do you want Mitt Romney to put together "binders of blacks." Or, even more nutty, do we want to act like feminists and attempt to force random women into power positions whether they want them or not? As long as some folks get to look at numbers they're more comfortable with, they don't give a shit how they were compiled.

"Disenfranchised minorities in other countries are recruited by groups like ISIS"

Actually, the people most likely to join ISIS are college-educated kids of privilege who were indoctrinated with the belief that the west is evil, and girls who have their bad boy fetish and end up joining ISIS to serve as nothing but cum dumpsters as they're raped repeatedly by dozens of men and forced to birth bastard babies who will be raised as terrorists.

People who are disenfranchised is just the emotionally easy out. Same thing we put on the 15-year-old knucklehead who kills a kid for Jordans. "Oh, he was so disenfranchised!" Horseshit. Some people are just fucked up, and this let's-give-people-jobs-to-prevent-terrorism nonsense echoing from the progressive left conveniently ignores all the educated, privileged people signing up with ISIS to fight against perceived imperialism.

It never ceases to amaze me how willing some people are to blame everyone on somebody else. Kid joins ISIS -- oh, not his fault. Society's fault. Disenfranchised! Racism! Capitalism! White male Christian west imperialism!

How 'bout, fuck you, say hello to Mr. Drone!?

” But, please, folks need to stop making Michael Brown a victim. The asshole attacked a police officer after robbing a store.”

Yeah that’s right, cuz even though the store owner is not convinced Brown was the robber, and even though “he assaulted me” was the cop’s only possible defense, let’s just execute him right there and then. I mean the punishment for robbing a cigar store is death, right? So the cop was just trying to save the taxpayer time and money, by executing him without lethal injections and all that expensive stuff.

And let’s not bother with a trial right? That Magna Carta shit is just for white folks.

”The moron didn't have his hands up surrendering.”

There were witnesses that said he did, some of whom were as melanin-challenged as you. But hey, you were there, right Josh? You witnessed the whole thing. So you know better than me.

**

”He wasn't "innocent."

Hell no! He wasn’t “innocent.” He had no criminal record, had not been charged or convicted of any crime, but as I said, all that innocent until proven guilty shit is strictly for white folks.

**

”Being "unarmed" is nothing but a weasel word to imply that he was murdered in cold blood.”

Damn straight he wasn’t ‘unarmed’ he had black skin to an American cop that’s the equivalent of waving a Tec-9 around above your head. That made him guilty of treading on the cracks in the pavement, wearing a loud shirt in a built-up zone and no doubt many more heinous crimes.

Those people on the streets? They are not enemy combatants, they are citizens of a free society. You are a SERVANT of the people, not their oppressor. You DO NOT gun them down in the street unless your life is clearly in imminent mortal danger. You do not hang round in E.R. units with the intention of locking up any black guy that's been involved in a fight. The people pay your wages, treat them with respect and one day, who knows, they will probably learn to respect you back.

Relax with the hyperbole. For someone who fancies himself intelligent and good at debate 'round here, you sure do stoop down to pure sappy sophistry about five times per post. Holy fucking shit. Emotion much?

"all that innocent until proven guilty shit is strictly for white folks."

And more pure sophistry. Why the fuck not? Yeah, let's play the what-coulda-happened game and maybe Wilson could have calmly deescalated the situation by expressing to Brown that, as a white man, he understands "black rage" and how hard it must be to be black in America. Then, maybe Brown woulda calmed down, and not tried to maim a police officer, and he coulda been tried. As it stood, however, the fucker went pure savage and tried to physically harm someone with a gun. Someone with a gun! Holy shit.

"Damn straight he wasn’t ‘unarmed’ he had black skin to an American cop that’s the equivalent of waving a Tec-9 around above your head."

Again, pure sophistry. It's as if the big motherfucker didn't leap into the car and attack dude and then charge him on the street.

Cherry-picking + sophistry. What a lovely English breakfast. Fancy some tea and a biscuit with that?

"You know what? You ARE NOT an occupying army. You might look like an army these days, with your tanks, your assault weapons and your camouflaged clothing but that's not what you are. Those people on the streets? They are not enemy combatants, they are citizens of a free society. You are a SERVANT of the people, not their oppressor..."

With ya so far. You lost me after that. If a motherfucker twice my size is charging at me, a motherfucker who already attacked me, mind you, well, needless to say I'm going full-clip style on dude. He's not running at me to shake my hand. So, fuck that dude. Seriously. He shouldn't have wilded out like a retard. He would still be alive.

The rest, however, I agree with. Fuck the military police. Private citizens have earned a nation that doesn't police them so militantly.

"Yeah. Crying until people are hired only because of their skin color. That's the way to do it!"

So what you're saying, quite explicitly, is that white people have every right to create a society of systemic racism if they want. After all, if what matters is a person's skin color, then fuck a minority. Majority rules. If the only reason someone gets hired is due to their skin color, then what was the big deal with Jim Crow and suchlike?

If we're to only look at black skin and have that matter, then expect the majority race to do the same forever, do it more often, and like everything else in terms of conquering, to do it flat-out better than everyone else.

You're far too much a sophist on this issue to even be considered a rational person. Did you wake up wrong? Did you finally read Yisheng's post putting your personal on front street and now that wild hare is crawling sideways? What's with all this appeal to emotion, hyperbole and overall dumbfuckery? Bill might smoke that ass today.

Yes I understand that as a sociopath you don't understand the concept of emotion, but I do. When innocent and unarmed citizens are gunned down in the street by agents of the state, I get upset. Sue me.

Secondly I have never claimed to be particularly clever and I'm more-or-less hopeless at debating.

I don't believe I am guilty of sophistry. Even if he had robbed a cigar store (and without a trial, we will never know one way or another) you seem to be more than happy with his street execution. He was 147 feet away from the patrol car when he was shot dead. Witnesses (including white people) say he turned to face the officer with his arms raised in surrender. Why would an unarmed man charge an armed police officer with gun drawn from so far away? Suicide by cop? Why would he? There is no history of depression or suicidal thoughts in his background. So he was executed in cold blood, the cops invented the only defence they could use in the circumstances.

Truth is, you could label all my arguments as 'sophistry' if it makes you feel better, but I suspect in your heart you know I am right.

The DOJ wasn't as easily fooled as the media was PurpleCow.

Many witnesses said Mr. Brown had his hands up in surrender when he died, leading to nationwide protest chants of “Hands up, don’t shoot.”

But federal agents and civil rights prosecutors rejected that story, just as a state grand jury did in November.
...
The report found that witnesses who claimed that Mr. Brown was surrendering were not credible. “Some of those accounts are inaccurate because they are inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence; some of those accounts are materially inconsistent with that witnesses’ own prior statements with no explanation,” it said.
...
“Those witness accounts stating that Brown never moved back toward Wilson could not be relied upon in a prosecution because their accounts cannot be reconciled with the DNA bloodstain evidence and other credible witness accounts.”

I'm not sure my wife would appreciate me having a girlfriend.

I've traveled the world performing with some of the greatest talent in human history. And I got paid to do that.
How batshit crazy are you to believe I hated that? Oops, you're not batshit crazy, just projecting your life.

As president, if Obama wanted to end the giveaway of military equipment to local police he could easily do so.

And instead of you opining why Obama won't, you write about my wife and job.

There must be a good reason you always resort to childish insults when you get backed into a corner.

You're such a liar, Bill. Is that Obama's fault as well?

Lt. Commander Johnson said...

I say, let's fire all those cracker cops, all the KKK'ers in the city's administration, and ethnically cleanse Ferguson of all it's white parasites by bussing (remember bussing?. It was good enough to destroy Public Schooling in the US...ought to be good enough for those evil white devils in Ferguson) to some place like Montana. We can send them to a new social invention....Public 9 housing!.....and then, revisit Ferguson in two years, and see how they fared.

Well I guess the Repubs like having reports like this come out because they're keeping Eric Holder around longer than he wants to be. I guess they like him afterall.
What do you know about Loretta Lynch Field?

The Purple Cow said...

Lt. Commander Johnson, the lengths you people will go to defend the indefensible. Astonishing.

It looks like McCulloch gets off scott free. DAs not prosecuting police seems to be a pretty widespread problem. Some of the DOJ's unanswered questions probably would have been answered if there was a Darren Wilson trial. In lew of a trial, I don't doubt that Holder is correct that they can't prove civil rights violations against Wilson. It seemed more like murder or manslaughter than a hate crime to me. Statistics can show that blacks were stopped 30% more times than they should be, but they can't show which individual stops were valid and which ones weren't.

PurpleCow is typical of the left. Can't be reasonable or factual? Throw personal insults! Yay leftism! I see that bullshit every fucking day in my hometown.

Limpbaugh said...

I don't have any faith in our justice system. The Supreme Court stole my vote in the Bush v Gore election. It came down to one person's opinion. Pick which one of the justices who were nominated by traitors to the country that you want want to blame.

Limpbaugh said...

If Ferguson really is largely populated young blacks and old whites, the traffic stop statistics are even more skewed than they seem. Walking around in a retirement community where drivers can't even turn their necks is right up there with flying on Malaysian Airlines and hunting with Dick Cheney.

"Yes I understand that as a sociopath you don't understand the concept of emotion, but I do."

Now a sociopath? I thought just a conservative racist fascist. Or are they one and the same? You're the expert, apparently.

There's "emotion," and then there's lost-your-fucking-mind, make-Al-Sharpton-look-sane sophistry that even scumbag lawyers in court know better than to throw out there -- like Brown being murdered because he stole a cigar.

In every single one of your emotional appeals, you leave out the facts of the situation, which include Brown's attacking of Wilson through the car, and then charging and not surrendering. Not a young, innocent, harmless boy who was killed on the side of the road for being black by the evil white cop.

"Ummmm, you do realise that's YOURquote you are responding to, right?"

Good catch. My bad. I meant to include your "Actually yes" there at the end. So, just imagine it with your horseshit, it's-okay-to-be-racist nonsense at the end: Actually yes.

Better now?

"I don't believe I am guilty of sophistry. Even if he had robbed a cigar store (and without a trial, we will never know one way or another) you seem to be more than happy with his street execution."

Sophistry - Noun

1) a subtle, tricky, superficially plausible, but generally fallacious method of reasoning
2) a false argument; sophism

Josh replies: Please, learn what fucking words mean before you continue on talking with me. Or we at least need to decide on a middle ground for definitions. We must have received completely different educations or something. You seem to define words much differently than I do.

"Even if he had robbed a cigar store..." which wasn't at all why Wilson shot him, was it?

He didn't see a black person on the street, shout, "There that nigger is," and open fire. He stopped whom he thought was a suspect, and was promptly physically assaulted by a lunatic who is not a damn victim.

To call the stop in specific in question, I don't mind that. Where's your real probable cause at, cop? But they're separate issues. Motherfucker tried to beat to death a person with a gun...because? Fuck knows. Bad day? Death wish? Sick of white people?

"Correct. He didn't."

Oh, no. You're not one of those who think Darren Wilson tried to drive-by at speed and pull Wilson in through the window, are you? Like the lying-ass witness said?

Yeah, let us defy physics in the pursuit of labeling a white cop a racist for no other reason than the person shot was black.

Not sophism at all.

NO SHIT!!!!!!

What do you know about Loretta Lynch Field?


Field thinks shes jut dandy because its O-Bombers pick...

U know damm well he's rolling with it.

What I know about Loretta Lynch is she presided over several of the Big Bank Mortgage settlements.

The settlements allowed "Too Big to Fail" to be enshrined with Tax Payer bailouts and egregious settlements for pennies on the dollar for damages to thousands of homeowners.

A horrible pick one who is in blatant obvious collusion with Big Banks.

Its not to be overlooked...

Oh and shes against Cannabis Legalization, and wants to continue to fund the Drug War...

What other disastrous policies does she support..??

Hell thats enough for me...

Cant even get Holder to bring 1 (one) charge against the myriad of different civil rights violations that are Obvious to anyone...

Zimmerman..nothing... Ferguson.... Nothing... Darren Wilson nothing.....

PATHETIC..considering prior Presidents in recent history.

"Josh is the new QLB. What a dickhead."

I certainly enjoy talking with folks like PC here. Albeit an extreme sophist of the highest Order of Sissy, which may be a British organization or something, he at least attempts to flesh out arguments and to debate what it is I'm actually saying. Well, I mean, what it is he actually thinks I'm saying, at least. Which is a far cry different from you trolls like the anonymous twins and Yisheng who, on one hand, claim to never even read what I write, but on the other hand always have a nasty critique after each one of my posts, as if they can't stop reading what I write.

I expect that PC will one day devolve into that type of shit. Such is the natural inclination of a sophist, but the contrast is quite stark.

One person wants to get their point across, so that person actually attempts to do so like an adult -- a perhaps mentally challenged male with far too much estrogen, but an adult nevertheless. Another wants to get their point across, so they shout childish insults, change their name, and metaphorically swallow cock for attention.

Well, since you're willing to put in that much effort on a daily basis, let me at least acknowledge said effort.

Good show, old boy. I think you're better suited for YouTube or Twitter, personally, but keep on keeping on...

The struggle, yo.

Those old white ladies better move away ASAP given the propensity of the NAPA to home invade and rape old white women. Seems to be a favored activity for the young streetwise Din DoNuffins of black america.

How did you feel about the OJ verdict NAPA? Was that justice served?

Black witnesses corroborated Wilson's story and he wasn't shot for stealing a cigar you fucking clown. He was shot for trying to take a cops gun.

So you would be okay with a white person only being hired because he/she is white? Ok then.
