Deadly encounters for some.

TWEET MEDo y'all remember a fellow named John Crawford?

If not, I will bring you up to speed.

 "A 22-year-old man was shot and killed last week in an Ohio Wal-Mart after failing to obey police officers’ orders to put down a bb/pellet rifle he was holding. Beavercreek police say officers followed proper protocol when they shot John Crawford III in the store. But Crawford’s family is speaking out, saying they believe the officers used excessive force against the young man, the Dayton Daily News reported. 

Crawford was holding a Crosman MK-177 air pump rifle as he walked through the store, WHIO, Dayton, reported. The weapon, which can shoot both pellets and BBs, had been removed from its original packaging. April and Ronald Ritchie told WHIO they were in the hardware section of the Wal-Mart when they saw Crawford walking with the air pump gun in his hand. They became alarmed and called 911 to report him.

Once on the scene, Beavercreek police Officer Sean Williams and Sgt. David Darkow located Crawford and instructed him to put down the replica rifle. When he didn’t comply, he was shot by the officers. Crawford died at a local hospital shortly after the shooting. The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office ruled Friday Crawford died of a gunshot wound to the torso and listed his death as a homicide." [Source]

Yes, he was the black man that was shot to death in a Walmart store while holding a toy gun.

Fast forward to the summer of 2017, where I will bring you to the town of Novi, Michigan.

"Video from a bystander shows a woman pull out a gun during a fight inside a Walmart store in Novi on Monday afternoon.
 
An argument broke out between two pairs of women over the last notebook on the shelf at the Novi Towne Center store, according to police.
 
The fight involved two Farmington Hills residents, ages 46 and 32, and a mother and daughter from
 
WCRZ-FM reports that the two Farmington Hills women were shopping for school supplies, and when one of them reached for the last notebook on the shelf, a South Lyon woman also reached for it. Police told the Free Press that it was the 20-year-old who reached for it. 
 
The two women pulled the 20-year-old’s hair, and the woman's mother was pushed aside before pulling out a gun, according to Fox2Detroit." [Video]
 
If you noticed the difference between the gun toting Walmart shopper in the video above and John Crawford move to the head of the class. This is just one example of the disparate treatment between people of color and those in the majority population in situations like this.
 
This all brings me to that poor nurse in Utah. People are outraged at  the way she was treated by the police officer in the hospital, and rightfully so. There are now calls for him to be criminally prosecuted for the way he manhandled and cuffed her, and ultimately held her in his police cruiser for 20 minutes.
 
The police officer's conduct was outrageous to be sure, but thankfully nurse Wubbels will live to see another day. She suffered bruises to her arm and her movements were restricted for 20 minutes of her life. 
 
People of color such as Sandra Bland and others who had similar contacts with the police did not survive their encounter, and sadly, we will never hear from them again. 
 
If they had only lost 20 minutes of their lives I am sure that their loved ones would have taken that.

Oh I know how we're treated differently. Maybe in 100 years we'll all be equal.

Flying Junior said...

Damn right I remember both incidents. The kid in the WalMart who was shot for playing with a toy gun. The paranoid white guy who dialed 911 should have been arrested for providing false information to the police at the very least. But the policeman should have known better. Couldn't the manager of the store have told the police that maybe he was just playing with merchandise? Dammit WTF? Dead. Just like a spider on the wall.

The Sarah Bland case was just as heart-breaking in yet another way. I can remember just about every moment in the video complete with sound. Her disbelief when she realized she was going to be arrested. The typical racist response that she should have complied with the policeman's orders. Yada yada. Absolutely tragically shameful.

"The two women pulled the 20-year-old’s hair, and the woman's mother was pushed aside before pulling out a gun, according to Fox2Detroit." [Video]"

In that case there was an actual physical assault against the woman's daughter, and she pulled her gun in lawful defense.

And... nobody shot anybody.  That's the difference between White people and Black people.  You kill each other over chicken wings.


"If you noticed the difference between the gun toting Walmart shopper in the video above and John Crawford move to the head of the class. This is just one example of the disparate treatment between people of color and those in the majority population in situations like this."

The difference is that there was a physical assault going on in the WalMart, and the assailants were stopped by showing the gun.  Crawford was just a moron.

Nobody asked the woman with the gun to drop her gun, because the whole incident was over before LE got involved.  Your moron "brother" John Crawford was running around the store, with a weapon he hadn't purchased and had removed from the packaging, and refused police commands to put it down.  Black people are total idiots about guns.  About weapons of any kind, AAMOF.  Laquan McDonald, Tamir Rice... same idiot behavior.

If you can't even see this difference after it's been pointed out to you, you do not have what it takes to be an American and you have to go.  You don't have to go back, but you can't stay here.


"I know how we're treated differently. Maybe in 100 years we'll all be equal."

You'll never BE equal.  You're treated differently because you act differently.  Since you can't see this even after it's been pointed out to you... etc. etc.

Thank GOD for the FIELD NEGRO standing up for BLACK people's rights to violently resist arrest!

America will not be free until BLACK people can do whatever the FUCK they want without suffering any consequences what so fucking ever.

dinthebeast said...

Nobody will be equal with you James, you're special.

Maybe if we took the guns away from the police officers for one month, and fired any who refused to work on the spot, we could get rid of a few of the ones who think their only work tool is their gun.

And perhaps if we at least tried to get rid of some of the Nazis and white supremacists they hired when Bill Clinton "put an extra 100,000 cops on the street" with the accompanying relaxation of standards it took to field that many cops that quickly there might be at least a few less of the incidents of state perpetrated slaughter of citizens that have become so commonplace these days.

But maybe not, cops are cops, after all:

Uh huh...let's see you comment on the toture and murder of Jessica Chambers, "councillor".

They want to try to forget it....kinda like the Kansas City Horror, the Nashville Massacre, or...the ZEBRA killings.

Emily Litella- Who buys schools supplies while armed? I told you this would happen when Blacks run cities like Detroit.

Chevy Chase- Emily, the people in Walmart were all white.

Emily Litella- OH! Never mind.

Here is the store video of Crawford being murdered. He was not even facing officers when they shot him from a distance.

He sure as shit didn't look to be threatening anyone or anything before he was gunned down for being black.

I keep having to pinch myself. A black man has been president. A black man on NBC tells me the news every night. A black man's name is above the title on Oscar-winning Hollywood movies. There are at least 2 black U.S. billionaires and hundreds of millionaires. Black scholars and scientists abound in all fields.

Two of my favorite bloggers are...

But my God, the disconnect! The U.S. is the ass-draggingest, most schizophrenic nation on earth. God help us.

Great, the stupid "superior" assholes spew their stupidity. Lt. Commander Pussy still talks about Jessica Chambers even though her killer was caught all the while ignoring white male baby rapists. What an asshole. And James' dumb ass lies constantly and thinks anybody wants to read his bullshit. Pretty dumb stuff for a supposed orbital engineer.

Every DACA student takes a place in college from a black student born right here in America.

Why are we giving seats in college to people who came here illegally when the descendants of slaves are denied their chance at a better life? DACA rewards criminals at the expense of victims.

Thank you Pilot! Been busy, bringing in plants, getting the generator ready, gasoline, clearing up stuff that could potentially become projectiles, there were two unused satellite antennas on the roof we didn't even remember, they had to be dismounted and brought down, water reservoirs, etc. A lot of work and hopefully this thing will change its course at the last minute as has been known to happen, but it's so big and heavy there's little hope of it rising northward much :(

So we'll see, I'm waiting on my daughter to make another last minute run to the supermarket, my son took me yesterday but it was bedlam!

Not too worried about the wind, although they're at 185 now, because we're surrounded by mountains and I think/hope that'll break the wind up. The one thing that worries me is there's a creek nearby and I've heard this area is floodable! I'm ready to climb up to the roof (NOT) xD

@Field: If you keep referring to these inbred cave beasts as the "majority" they will believe it. Stop giving extra credit to these slobbering sows. It's a lie, and they know it. Stop perpetuating it.

1) There should be ZERO affirmative action for any ethnicity other than African-American;

2) There should be ZERO affirmative action for MED SCHOOL.

I'm in school with a few DACA students and they are mostly first generation college students with demonstrated commitments to serve in communities of color. So I support them being here.

However, I don't think DACA students are "taking seats" from anyone certainly not me, with an almost perfect GPA and NO grade lower than an "A".

A Black student that puts in the work WILL get opportunities because colleges and universities are always recruiting top notch students, irrespective of immigration status. Or age. ;)

There are "DREAMers" who were brought here at the age of two. I did not know you could commit a crime at the age of two.

Maybe you can only become a toddler criminal if you're Mexican?

Why do minorities ALWAYS fall for this shit of being against each other, instead of joining TOGETHER against whooteemoos?

I doubt it was a minority person who wrote that "criminals at the expense of victims" comment. Probably just one of the usual lame racist trolls, using a female username and the stock photo of a random black woman he grabbed off the Internet.

I miss the days when they would preface all their fake comments with "as a black man," lol. These losers and their childish tricks are so tedious.

Sandra Bland sure didn't seem like a person who would kill herself.

Because minorities can't write above the fourth grade level? Fuck you, white boy.

"Sandra Bland sure didn't seem like a person who would kill herself."

In fact, she did. She talked about her mental health struggles on her social media channel. And she admitted to a recent suicide attempt on her jail intake paperwork.

Based on the evidence that has been released thus far, the jail staff failed to prevent her from taking her own life. They did not murder her.

I know very well how we are treated. But I am happy to see that you are prepared. It may take many more years to be treated equally with us.

Do you have ANY idea what would happen during that month?  The cops would stand down and stay in their cars, and every White guy would be free to blow shitskins away with impunity for any kind of offense, even acting "uppity".  Hell, every White guy who'd ever been mugged, burglarized or had his car stolen would go to coontown and go for his bag limit.  You wouldn't last 24 hours before you were demanding that the cops have their guns back.

If the cops were smart, they'd say "Uh-uh, this is what you asked for, now you get it—good and hard."


"Nobody will be equal with you James, you're special."

You're damn straight.  You couldn't even see the most obvious consequence of your hypothetical, whereas I nailed it immediately.  I'm specially intelligent; you're Special Education.

"James' dumb ass lies constantly and thinks anybody wants to read his bullshit."

The funny part is that you obviously read it... but can't understand it.

"There are "DREAMers" who were brought here at the age of two."

Transferring the proceeds of a crime to a minor child does not make the theft legitimate.  The proceeds are forfeit to those from whom they were stolen.

Those proceeds of crime include the citizenship of those born to illegal aliens.  That citizenship is forfeit.  They all have to go back, even unto the seventh generation.
