A Simple Cure For Police Brutality And Murder

The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands or rather the knee of a uniformed thug has been used as a pretext for rioting, looting, and protests against the Trump Administration. This insanity has even spread to the other side of the Atlantic where there have been protests and where the BBC has been pushing the ludicrous Black Lives Matter/racism narrative. What are the true facts?

As Conservatives point out, the American police actually kill more whites than blacks, mostly by shooting them. Happy now? This sophisticated tabulated map for 2016 reveals that a total of 1,093 people were killed in the US (by law enforcement), a truly staggering number. And that was down from 1,145 the previous year. The map appears to be accurate because clearly a lot of research has gone into it.

Interestingly, almost all these fatalities were of men. For example, of those killed by the police in December 2016, only one was definitely a woman. Miriam Savino appears to have committed suicide by cop, luring a deputy to her Florida home under a false pretext then attacking him with a big knife. She had quite a history of violence and was clearly not right in the head.  Why does no one protest the disparity in the sex of such fatalities, and are blacks more liable to be killed by the police unjustifiably? You’ve obviously heard of George Floyd, and you may well have heard of Eric Garner, but have you heard of Daniel Shaver or Dillon Taylor? Probably not, they were both white men who were murdered by the American police.

The clearly unarmed Daniel Shaver was shot dead by Philip Brailsford without a smidgen of justification. He was tried for murder, and acquitted. Take a look at the video and ask how any jury could have found him not guilty of at least second degree and almost certainly first degree murder. To add insult to injury, after his acquittal, Brailsford was allowed to temporarily rejoin the Mesa Police in order to claim a tax-free pension of  $31,000 a year for life. Not bad for a 28 year old.

While Brailsford was at least tried for murder, the murderer of Dillon Taylor didn’t get anywhere near a courtroom. The execution can be seen at the beginning of the same video.

This is an all too common scenario, one that has even been known to happen in the UK. The authorities do everything they can to avoid bringing a prosecution, if the case does go to trial, either the prosecution or the judge sabotages it, and finally, juries refuse to convict. What can be done about this?

Both Philip Brailsford and Derek Chauvin the acknowledged killer of George Floyd, knew they were on camera but were undeterred. Such arrogance is typical of police officers of all ranks worldwide.

There is however a very simple solution, instead of the county or the state being held liable in tort for unlawful killings and brutality by the police, the vicarious liability must be shifted onto the police unions. After the 2015 execution of Walter Scott by Michael Slager, the victim’s family settled a lawsuit for $5 million. A few settlements of that size coming out of police pension funds or the assets of the Fraternal Order of Police would soon see them reining in their brethren.

Finally, if you don’t think that is likely or even possible, check out the way the Metropolitan Police took down who were at that moment the two most dangerous men in Britain.  A few minutes earlier, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale had all but hacked off a man’s head, and could very likely have been wearing suicide belts. The detectives who confronted them would have been more than justified in shooting to kill, yet they elected not to. The fact that so many American police officers have so little regard for human life is one that needs to be addressed, and the best way to do that is to hit the police where it will really hurt them. In their wallets.

What the writer is mot pointing out here is that most of the whites killed by police was of necessity and that these people were hard core criminals. There is no comparison between hard core criminals and innocent black people who jas been targeted for 465 years of brutal oppression
When you people come on here to write bullshit just know that we are watching you
Get your facts straight and realize this is 2020 and not 1865. Time to shake it up!!!

Oh really now. Like my unarmed neighbor never charged with a crime who was killed with his hands on the dashboard? Like him? Yeah right!

The only thing which appears to be shaken is your gray matter. You need to thank the IDF (that’s Israeli Defense Forces in the event you aren’t familiar with the acronym) and the Israeli government for the current militarization of the U.S. police. Every major U.S. city conducts police training OVERSEAS in Israel and learns the tactics used by the Israelis against the Palestinians. In addition, every major police dept in the U.S. has a great number of former military personnel who’ve learned how to kill humans and haven’t learned a thing about keeping peace; which is what “police” USED… Read more »

Was this policeman trained in Israel, where the knee on the throat is commonly used against Palestineans? His collegues received the same murderous training as have cities all over the US.

Yes, it is very common in the US for large cities’ police departments as Minneapolis and NYC to train in Israeli tactics.

Floyd, a prior robbery felon who was intoxicated at the time of his arrest, did not die from choking after being subdued for attacking two cops. His CPD and hypertension had weakened his heart to where it could not endure any stress. Perhaps one cop might be guilty of manslaughter, but murder, no.

The only way to stop police murders of civilians in the United States is to disband and disarm police. Establish a new cadre of people who actually serve and protect the public by doing such things as directing traffic, giving directions, administering first aid, and the like. As long as police exist, hey will kill and britalize the people on behalf of the ruling class.

I strongly disagree with the looting but…a pretext for rioting and protesting? What a cheap shot, The Duran. Non-whites have been mistreated for years and years and sooner or later, pay back time will come – and it seems to be arriving…finally. The $h*t is hitting the fan and the whites don’t like it one bit. Whitey can dish it out but not take it.

Not payback when non-white businesses also fall prey to the looting. This is just looting, rampage, destruction, regardless of who the owner is, what the business does. In Atlanta half of the businesses are minority owned. How does burning down these businesses help non-whites? It doesn’t. The only thing it will ensure is that these people will never get back up again and others like them never even dare to take the step up because they get discouraged before they even begin.   Btw, how can it be that this mistreated segment of society manages to own 50% of all… Read more »
