****. I agree with you, again.

New York’s Finest, at their finest:
NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops — as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety, The Post has learned.
The dramatic drop comes as Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio plan to hold anemergency summit on Tuesday with the heads of the five police unions to try to close the widening rift between cops and the administration.
The unprecedented meeting is being held at the new Police Academy in Queens at 2 p.m., sources said.
Angry union leaders have ordered drastic measures for their members since the Dec. 20 assassination of two NYPD cops in a patrol car, including that two units respond to every call.
It has helped contribute to a nose dive in low-level policing, with overall arrests down 66 percent for the week starting Dec. 22 compared with the same period in 2013, stats show.
Citations for traffic violations fell by 94 percent, from 10,069 to 587, during that time frame.
So your brilliant, devious plan is this: you’re going to show the people who believe that the NYPD is full of power-hungry bullies and paramilitary goons what for by displaying to the country exactly how most of the collars you make are in fact wholly unnecessary exercises of petty microagression towards the citizenry you hold in open and rancorous contempt.
Okay then. Go with that plan, guys.
The Thin Blue Line, indeed.
......their antics in the face of criticism proves in living color what we see in so many individual incidents: they don't just want respect, they want submission. They will brook no discussion and accept no accountability, have no use for psychology or patience because the weapons in their holsters should be sufficient to gain instant compliance. We cannot call ourselves a free society as long as that is the case.
The Thin-Skinned Blue Line
NYPD COPS SO SAD AT MAYOR DE BLASIO THEY JUST CAN’T FIGHT CRIME ANYMORE
I know. You'd be shoved around, tazered, handcuffed, arrested at best. At worst, well ........ and then Carpfart would have something "non" racist to say about "you people" and respect for the law with some goofy-assed emoticon laughing.
There he goes: Just like I predicted!
He forgot his twinky emoticon.
Fox 45 fires crew behind the bogus 'kill a cop' story
Source: Baltimore City Paper
The reporter and the photographer responsible for misquoting Tyrone West's sister, Tawanda Jones, at a protest rally in Washington, D.C., reporting she and others chanted "kill a cop," have been let go by Fox 45, according to two sources confirming a report that first appeared on the site FTVLive.com.
... But it seems there has been further fallout, as reporter Melinda Roeder and cameraman Greg McNair have been released, and news director Mike Tomko and a producer who expressed his discomfort with the story have been suspended one and two days, respectively.
An insider told FTVLive Tomko was the one who pushed doing the story. "It was found by him, assigned by him and ultimately proofed by him," the source said.
... "The reporters and photogs believe Tomko sacrificed two little people to save himself," the source says. Both Roeder and McNair are "lawyering up," the source also says.

I want to correct an impression, I sort hate to do it because you might I was trying to deceive but I wasn't. I am not black, as far as I am aware, live in the south with deep roots even further down south on mom's side so you never know, but I am white. So I doubt I would be shoved down and arrested or worse. My bi-racial granddaughter might have that trouble someday, she is lighter skinned but she has a lot of her dad in her,(very beautiful) but I hope we really are going through some kind of revolution and by the time she grows up, it will be a thing of the past.
Not at all, I assumed. But the point is good. I think the photo is one of an exercise and that woman yelling in the cops face was paid. But if it happened outside the training area, what would have happened to her?
Wonder why you think the woman was paid? You would think if the cops were trying to make themselves look good they would have paid a black man or woman. But in any case, I think if it was a black woman, she would have been harshly arrested, if she resisted even worse maybe if they were not in a situation where the police knew the media was around, a black man, probably worse if the past few years is any indication. It seems as though the bigger city police have decided the best way to fight to crime is just to treat all minorities as dangerous criminals for any perceived or real minor offenses. Like it is just ok to shoot first and justify later.
I don't agree at all with the cop killing, on the hand, I don't agree with those (the usual who say things like this) who say the fault lies in pointing out the bad behavior of the police. The police need a cleaning inside and out, a total change.
I think I saw this, maybe NYT on an article about the police. It sure looks like how I remember it.
Big Mike is not one of the best 500 instances of black death this year to pin a movement on, but still when blacks see whites day after day carrying signs that say " black lives matter" blacks might just reexamine their racism against whites. This could turn out to be a good thing.
Don't be stupid. We all see it every ******* day. What's your shitty little point, weasel?
When were you EVER victimized by racism?
Oh jeez. What ancient pain are you suffering from. Did someone big and black and menacing scare you.
Best thing I ever did was be one of five white folk in a van in the middle of a traffic jam in Kingston, Jamaica. Stuck for an hour or so to move five or six blocks. It was good for my soul to be outnumbered for once. I did not even consider for a moment walking the five or six blocks. In Mexico I never felt like that.
This how the "collective" is feeling about its "agents":
Fed Up: Florida Crowd Forms Human Shield to Protect Man Police Try to Arrest for Smoking Marijuana
In addition to the mass protests nationwide against police brutality, incidents where ordinary citizens speak up, start recording and attempt to intervene when they see excessive and abusive cop behavior are being reported more frequently.
Earlier this month in New York City, a woman angrily denounced police who were beating an already restrained teenage boy as others made sure to film the incident to hold the plainclothes officer accountable. It is possible that the assembled and outraged crowd prevented further abuse, and with the help of the cellphone video, the cop faced at least some discipline from the department.
This past weekend in Delray Beach, Florida, dozens of people quickly organized to stop what they believed to be a petty and unnecessary arrest.
That night, Delray Police entered a neighborhood after seeing a man walking down the street smoking. The officers thought the smoke smelled like marijuana, so they decided to pursue the man. When the man entered a home nearby, the police followed and tried to apprehend him. They were surprised when about 20 people came out of the home and surrounded the man to prevent the arrest from taking place.
White Woman Goes on Shooting Spree, Yet Somehow Isn't Automatically Killed By Police
How did they manage to disarm her without anybody getting hurt?
We've been told repeatedly that if only Eric Garner hadn't resisted, or been so fat, the medical examiner wouldn't have found that his death was a homicide due to asphyxiation. We've been told that if only Michael Brown hadn't been a vicious cigarillo thug he wouldn't have received a bullet wound in his arm that either came from the back while he was running away, or from the front while he hands were up as he traveled forward at the stunningly rapid speed of 2.59 mph.[Calculated by dividing 25 ft by the 6.572 secs it took to fire the shots that killed him] We've been told that if only Jonathan Crawford had dropped the toy air-rifle he picked up from the shelves at Walmart within two seconds, that if only Tamir Rice had dropped his BB Gun within one second, and if only Darrien Hunt hadn't been running away as police shot him in the back for "brandishing" an unsharpened Katana Sword, all three of these people would still be alive today.
So then why exactly is this person still alive after going on a violent shooting spree, including pointing her gun at officers while wearing body armor?
A Tennessee woman is facing multiple charges including attempted first-degree murder for driving around shooting at people, leading a police chase, and pointing her gun at an officer.
Julia Shields, 45, drove around a Chattanooga neighborhood Friday just before 4pm dressed in body armor, randomly shooting into vehicles, WRCB reports.
Officers responded to a call from two victims who said Shields pulled up to their vehicle at a stop sign in a dark colored sedan and began firing into the car. No one was reportedly hurt.
Shields is alleged to have driven around town shooting at people in other vehicles. Police were called and she was found in a parking lot, where she then led police on a chase and continued to point her weapon at passing cars, and at police during the chase. And if that isn't shocking enough here's the real kicker.
Shields was taken into custody without incident or injury and charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder, seven counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, felony evading arrest, and felony reckless endangerment, according to WRCB.
Without incident? Without injury? Now what on earth could be the reason for that completely unexpected result? How, pray tell, could this alleged perpetrator, who unlike all the previous examples was not only armed with a genuine real weapon - had used it multiple times - how is it this woman wasn't instantly dead as soon a police had a good clear shot at her? How's that even possible, because it seems to me we've been told over and over again that if police don't react the way that they did with Garner, Brown, Rice, Crawford and Hunt, we'd being seeing more Cop Funerals, wouldn't we?
What could it be that's different about this case compared to those? Maybe I'm dumb, but I just can't figure it out.
We've been told that pointing out teeny, tiny, little discrepancies in policing like this is clearly the product of Cop Hate. That when Mayor Bill de Blasio refused to be baited by a right wing reporter into condemning all of the police violence protesters simply because a few of them did something shameful and disgusting, that simply because Mayor de Blasio admitted that hefears for the life of his own son when potentially confronted by police and said the following...
This is profoundly personal to me. I was at the White House the other day, and the president of the United States turned to me, and he met Dante a few months ago, and he said that Dante reminded him of what he looked like as a teenager. And he said I know you see this crisis through a very personal lens. And I said to him, I did.
Because Chirlane and I have had to talk to Dante for years about the dangers that he may face. A good young man, law-abiding young man who would never think to do anything wrong. And yet, because of a history that still hangs over us, the dangers he may face, we've had to literally train him—as families have all over this city for decades—in how to take special care in any encounter he has with the police officers who are there to protect him.
This was apparently such a vicious affront to police, one that was so clearly "anti-Cop" that it was deserving of displays of disrespect such as this.

And that the Mayor deserved to be booed and called "Traitor" at the NYPD Academy Graduation.
The boos also came with a few cries of “traitor” and heckling during his brief remarks.
“Let’s be honest about the realities of our society. You will confront all the problems that plague our society — problems that you didn’t create,” de Blasio said.
“You did!” someone then yelled, prompting laughter and applause.
Right, because it's all Mayor de Blasio's fault that people have distrust in the motives and actions of police, particularly when dealing with young African-American men. Mayor de Blasio did that. Just like Mayor de Blasio was responsible for these Officers who decided that someone literally Dancing the Street in response to a "dare" from Ellen Degeneris had apparently crossed a bridge too far in the personal affront category.
“I challenge the viewers to sneak up behind perfect strangers, to dance behind them without them knowing it,” Degeneres said on her show. Previous “dance dares” have featured pregnant viewers, as well as viewers dancing at the Golden Gate Bridge and in front of JCPenney stores, among other settings.
BOK subsequently shot footage of himself dancing behind strangers inside Grand Central Station. In one scene, he dances behind a pair of officers without being caught, seemingly without incident.
But when he approaches the other officer from behind a police vehicle, the encounter quickly escalates. The officer approaches him and asks, “What’s wrong with you, bro?” as two more officers immediately join him. The officer backs BOK into the vehicle and places his hand on his chest. BOK is turned around and seemingly frisked.
At that point, a message appears on the screen saying, “After explaining what we were doing they kept going, insulting me … After endless attempts, realizing they cannot arrest me… they threw me on the ground.”
Yeah, that's sobering. If humorless, asshole, violent Cops like these are expecting the blind trust and support of the public, they've got another think coming.
And none of it is Bill de Blasio's fault.
I suppose the message is loud and clear, carry a real gun and be prepared to use it if you are black and scary looking. The NRA should endorse the message. Sad, I personally hope the tide turns and people listen to the message of the Mayor of New York instead of those who turned their heads. I would rather a peaceful turning of the tide and a systematic change in the police force.
I suppose the message is loud and clear, carry a real gun and be prepared to use it if you are black and scary looking.
The message is not to attacked a police officer with or without a firearm no matter what your skin color happen to be.!!!!!
