|All they did was kill a white cop... isn't that what the media, academia and the Obama Administration is encouraging blacks to do? Won't that finally rid America of "implicit bias"? |
Well, not really.
But that's not the point.
The point is, yet another white cop has been murdered ("executed" is perhaps a better term, though not quite an officially state-sanctioned execution yet) by a black person. In this case, it was two black people. [Suspected gunmen identified in killing of veteran KCK police captain, KCTV.com, July 20, 2016]:
Two men are being held in connection with the fatal shooting of a Kansas City, KS police captain, KCTV5 has learned.
Prosecutor Jerry Gorman says Jamaal Lewis and Daqon Sipple, the men in jail in connection with Capt. Robert Melton’s death, may not be charged until Thursday. Police say they are not looking for any other suspects at this time.
Lewis, 20, was booked late Tuesday night in Wyandotte County jail on first-degree murder. Sipple, 18, was booked hours earlier on aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and use of a deadly weapon.
KCTV5 spoke to Clarette Monroe, the mother of Lewis.
She says don’t rush to judgement yet.
“He’s not a bad kid,” Monroe said. “He’s hanging out with a rough crowd. He has no record and has never been arrested. People should not rush to judgment. Don’t do that.”
Jalelisa Sipple, the sister of Daqon Sipple, also spoke to KCTV5. She echoed Monroe's comments.
"The only thing I want people to know is that the picture that's being painted is not actually him," she said. "Which is what most people know, everybody that knows him knows that he's not that kind of kid?"
KCTV5 examined Lewis’ and Sipple’s backgrounds. Searches in Kansas and Missouri revealed backgrounds. However, juvenile records are sealed.
Police said there was a drive-by shooting at Second Street and Edgerton Road about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday and officers responded. Melton found both the suspects at 22nd Street and Haskell Avenue about 2 p.m.
Before Melton could get out of his vehicle, someone opened fire through his window, hitting Melton several times, Zeigler said.
Melton, 46, was taken to the University of Kansas Hospital. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him the whole way there. He was pronounced dead a little before 3 p.m.
Jamaal and Daqon "didn't do nothing," according to their family members. They just killed a white cop, that's all.
And isn't that what Black Lives Matter seems to be agitating for?KCTV5
The latest PK at VDare. [With NAACP Speech, Hillary Goes Full “Black Lives Matter, White Lives Don’t”—And Her Convention Will Be Worse (Better)
, July 19, 2016]:
Only a day after another black radical—this time a member of the Nation of Islam—opened fire on white police in Baton Rouge (killing two white officers and one black officer, injuring multiple other white officers), the presumptive nominee for the Democrat Party has doubled down on the idea that racist white police are still out there hunting innocent black people.
Honestly, it’s hard to even keep a straight-face when reading what Hillary Clinton just told the NAACP National Convention in Cincinnati: that she will personally not stop leading a crusade against police “until we root out implicit bias and stop the killings of African Americans.”

, Cleveland Plain-Dealer, March 28, 2011]:
Establishing a new and powerful migration pattern, black families fled their Cleveland neighborhoods in large numbers last decade. They transformed some inner-ring suburbs and brought new diversity to wealthier, outer suburbs.
"They're moving out because of crime and because of the schools," said Councilman Zack Reed, whose Ward 2 on Cleveland's southeast side lost 26 percent of its population. "Those are the two fundamental reasons that people leave."
One of those areas profiled in the 2011 story from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer is Euclid, a city now majority black courtesy of black families fleeing the ruins of black Cleveland in search of another area black will inevitably ruin.

One person was shot to death during a “Stop the Violence Beach Party” at Sims Park Beach in Euclid Sunday.
According to a release from Euclid Police Department, there were 200 to 300 people at the party, which was held in the area of 23131 Lakeshore Blvd.
Police say a crowd had gathered on the beach, and at shortly after 8 p.m. unknown suspects fired shots and then fled on foot.
Although the intended target is unknown, a 19-year-old Euclid man was shot in the head and killed.
A 12-year-old boy was shot in the back and was hospitalized. His condition is not known.
Later in the evening at shortly after 9 p.m., an 18-year-old Euclid man was walking in the 24000 Lakeshore Boulevard when an unknown suspect fired multiple times at him from across the street, hitting the victim in the shoulder. The teen was hospitalized, and his condition is unknown.
No other injuries were reported in either incident, and no arrests have been made.
Police are investigating the possibility that the two incidents are related.

, Baltimore Sun, July 15, 2015]:
A week after five police officers were fatally shot in Dallas by a sniper during a protest against police shootings, Baltimore police say four officers came under fire from a 33-year-old man with a self-assembled, high-powered long gun.
Two of the officers returned fire, fatally wounding the man and spurring a massive police response outside a West Baltimore apartment complex Thursday night.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said Friday that the two officers who fired their weapons amid the "chaotic scene" have been placed on routine administrative duties pending an investigation into the incident.
He said a preliminary investigation suggested the two officers — one a 16-year veteran, and the other on the force for six years, neither of whom has been identified — acted appropriately and bravely in confronting the gunman, identified as Dayten Ernest Harper.
We're lucky we don't have four dead cops today," Davis said, before repeating the number to let it sink in.
A person reached at a number listed for Harper declined to comment Friday evening.
The exchange of gunfire occurred about 9:30 p.m. Thursday, shortly after President Barack Obama concluded a televised town hall to address the Dallas attacks and the growing national debate over fatal police shootings of black men, including Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minn.
It also happened the same day that the Baltimore Police Department received a memo from the Baltimore field office of the FBI, warning that members of the city's Black Guerrilla Family gang had discussed the possibility of ambushing officers in the wake of the Dallas attack.
The memo, obtained by The Baltimore Sun, said the FBI had received "highly credible information" that the BGF had discussed how the gang could ambush law enforcement officers parked in side streets or alleys, and instructed its members to look for opportunities to shoot white police officers.
Davis said police do not believe the incident Thursday had anything to do with the threat and "don't believe it was an ambush." He said four plainclothes officers happened to hear gunfire off Winchester Street and responded.
"They were fired upon by a bad guy," he said. "That's not the first time that's happened in Baltimore."
Still, given the intensity of the incident and the existence of the FBI memo, and with the national debate over police-community tensions as a backdrop, Davis said he decided to write a letter to all members of his force to reassure them that they have support.

Go 30 days without killing.
Black people in Memphis could do it, right?
Go 30 days without a black person killing another black person in 65 percent black Memphis, right? [Day 1 in '30 days no killing' decree
, WMCActionNews5.com, July 11, 2016]:
While speaking with protesters Sunday night, Memphis Police Department Interim Director Mike Rallings called for a 30-day moratorium on killing.
"If y'all want to show me something, show me 30 days," Rallings said.
"Black Lives Matter" protesters shut down the Interstate 40 bridge for several hours. Nobody was arrested or injured during the protest.
Rallings went to the I-40 bridge protest in person where he and other officers joined arm-in-arm with protesters to march off the bridge.
"We ain't pepper prayed nobody; we ain't deployed gas. That's the way it should be. I just wanted--come off the bridge, let's come to a place where we can talk, where we can have a dialog," Rallings said.
"I think we have to show restraint. We can easily resort to violence, so I'm asking our city to be less violent. We have to set the example," Rallings said. "I'm going to ask everyone, if you know someone, I want you to talk to those individuals and ask for 30 days of no killing. Senseless killing."
So far in 2016, Memphis has seen 120 homicides--it's a number that gives the city one of the highest per capita homicide rates in America.
Protesters agreed with the interim police director.
"When you feel like you need to pull the trigger, think, 'I'm messing my community up,'" one protester said. "When you feel like you need to stab him, think I'm messing my community."
"We're tired of the system killing us, so if we can show them how were not going to kill ourselves, there is no other excuse," Gregory Thompson said.
Thompson, who has been protesting in front of FedExForum since Friday, felt hopeful Sunday night and hopes Memphis can live up to its end of the deal.
"I hope we go 60. I hope we go 90. I hope it goes as long as it can," he said.
Could they go 60 days? Could they go 90 days? Could they go a week? Two days?
Could black people in 65 percent black Memphis go one day without killing one another?
No. ['30 day no killing' decree fails in less than 24 hours
, KFVS12.com, July 12, 2016]:
A decree issued by Interim Police Director Michael Rallings to go 30 days without killing failed when a man was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon.
The shooting happened near the intersection of East Raines Road and Airways Boulevard. The victim was first reported as being in extremely critical condition, but doctor's later announced that he did not survive his injuries.
Monday afternoon, Interim Police Director Michael Rallings asked protesters to help him by agreeing to a 30 day moratorium on killing. That moratorium did not last 24 hours.
Memphis Police Department continues to investigate the shooting.
Officers have not determined why the man was shot, but they do think a group of people are to blame. Witnesses told officers a woman and three or four men were seen driving away from the shooting in a small white car.
Everett Burke said his brother-in-law, Brandon Byers, was the man shot and killed.
"I heard a lot of screaming outside. I woke up and I went outside to see what was going on," Burke said. "You see somebody taking their last breath--it is awful. You are right there close to them."
Burke said Byers and his sister have three small children who were inside the apartment when three men and a woman kicked in the door to the apartment.
"They actually had hands on my niece," Burke said. "She was on the way to the restroom and one of them covered her mouth with their hand."
Burke said the suspects took a TV and his nephew's video game system.
The children were unharmed, but Burke said he wants to know why the suspects didn't listen when Rallings asked the Black Lives Matter movement to stop the killing for 30 days.
Burke said he is nervous and anxious and just wants the violence to stop.
"All these people using guns and killing people. l mean, you're not doing God's work and you're not doing anything positive out here."

How amazing is that? Just to recap, that Gove cove who was running Boris's campaign for the leadership of the Conservatives quits and says he is running himself and Boris, instead of batting Gove off like the no-hope political mosquito he is and soldiering on, comes back with: Oh no, I'm out, I'll support Theresa May instead.
Next thing you know Boris, who has never held any sort of government job before, however menial, is Foreign Secretary. Spooky, almost like there was some sort of a deal.
His appointment is actually inspired though. He gets the plushest office in Whitehall; his life will be constant first class travelling, wining and dining and glad-handing foreign Johnnies. The job calls for no talent whatsoever so he will struggle to mess it up.
And best of all, he will probably not be allowed to keep his weekly column in the Daily Telegraph
so Theresa May has just handed him a £250,000pa pay cut.

|The editor of the Memphis Commercial Appeal apologized for publishing the truth about the black gunman's attack on white people and white cops in Dallas. |
This is one of those moments. [CA Editor: We got it wrong.
, Memphis Commercial Appeal, July 13, 2016]:
By Louis Graham of The Commercial Appeal
Simply put, we got it wrong.
Those three big words in headline type stretched across Saturday's front page — Gunman Targeted Whites — were true according to police accounts in Dallas at the time but they badly oversimplified a very complex, rapidly evolving story, and angered many of our readers and many more in the broader community.
In my view the headline was so lacking in context as to be tone deaf, particularly in a city with a 65 percent African American population. That front page minimized the broader refrain of what's happening in our country with anguish over the deaths of young black men at the hands of police. It has been viewed as suggesting that this newspaper values the lives of white police officers more than young black men who have died in incident after incident.
The checks and balances in place to avoid just this type of disconnect didn't work that night for a variety of reasons. Too few people looked at the front page before it rolled off our presses. We've taken steps to correct that. But the larger challenge is recruiting a diverse enough staff to better reflect the city we cover. We continue to work on that and will be more introspective about how we do our jobs.
In an environment so fraught with anger and anxiety we added unnecessary fuel.
That's not our role. Ours is to explore and explain. The headline required restraint and we didn't provide it.
During this, our 175th year in business, I have been unflinching in our efforts the tell The Commercial Appeal's incredible story to this community. The whole story. Several months ago we published a wrenching account of our failures during that long history, particularly on the coverage of civil rights.
Of all the criticism I've read, and it is considerable, this stuck with me most from an angry reader:
"CA has really good reporters who try to include equity of voice + this cover doesn't portray that …"
The reader is right on both accounts and I had a face-to-face conversation with her today. I will be meeting with other readers who were angered as well.
There was a very similar reaction inside the newsroom. I was particularly disturbed by a comment I received from an African American editor who said she was disgusted by the page and threw the newspaper in the trash without reading it.
This newspaper, just like this city, has work to do. This column will raise the ire of some readers who believe the headline spoke the truth; that I'm kow-towing. I've already gotten an earful from readers angry over columnist David Waters' piece last week suggesting white churches had greater responsibility to solve the problem.
We've also heard from readers who objected to our 'Bridge Shut Down' headline; they believed it should have read 'Peaceful Protest.'
Please know I have more skin in the game than my paycheck. My wife and I raised our children here. They're raising theirs here, too.
Several of you have already requested I go back to June 2015 and look at the headline — also stretched across the top of the newspaper — when Dylann Roof was accused of killing nine African-Americans inside their beloved church in Charleston, S.C.
Did it say 'Gunman targets blacks,' I've been asked over and over.
No, it simply said 'Suspect Caught.'
Like I said, we have work to do.

From Indianapolis Metro Police Departments (IMPD) Chief Troy Riggins, we get this news
Riggs: Because this individual was wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt doesn’t mean he represents everyone who is part of the organization.
What could Chief Riggins' be referencing? [Man fires 17 shots into officer’s patrol car and home, screams he hates police
, Fox59.com, July 12, 2016]:
|Sure he yelled "f--k the police," and was wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt; but that's not sufficient evidence in the eyes of the Indianapolis Police to dare deem Black Lives Matter a threat to either police or white people...|
March Eugene Ratney, according to Department of Correction records, wasn’t due to be released from prison until this past June 6 after serving half of a 12-year sentence following his conviction as a serious violent felon with a weapon. Ten days later, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers were called to an east side address where Ratney’s sister said he had pulled a gun and threatened to kill her.
Investigators now report, and neighbors confirmed, Ratney, on parole, was the man clad in a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and screaming profanities at police, who shot up an IMPD officer’s house not far from his own home early this morning.
The officer and his family were uninjured.
“Think about this, this is your home,” said IMPD Chief Troy Riggs. “If there is one place in this world where you should always feel safe and your family should feel safe, it is in your home.”
The officer had just returned from work, but had not yet retired for the night, when approximately 17 shots were fired from a 9mm handgun into his house, fence and patrol car.
Neighbors recalled seeing a man in a Black Lives Matter t-shirt that also had obscenities directed at police walking the neighborhood last Friday night.
A nearby surveillance camera captured images of a fleeing vehicle shortly after the shooting at 2 a.m.
Ratney was driving a similar car and was stopped a few blocks away within an hour.
During his interrogation at IMPD headquarters, Ratney denied the shooting but became irate, cursed the officers and urinated in the interview room.
The black suspect was heard yelling "f--k the police," an obvious homage to N.W.A. ... no doubt his favorite movie is Straight Outta Compton
But don't get the impression his actions in any way reflect those of wider, equally bellicose black community.
He was, in the words of Chief Troy, just an individual. How could he represent such a placid organization?
The police are supposed to have the state monopoly on violence, but in Black-Run America (BRA), President Obama has transferred authority to Black Lives Matter

Neither Theresa May nor Andrea Leadsom were entirely right for the job of Prime Minister but of the two it had to be May.
Leadsom it turns out was a bit of shell, a person of no substance. One could imagine that such career success she has had has been down to her now faded looks; she is the sort of woman one hires to decorate the office, but not the sort entrusted with anything serious. Sometimes a job title doesn't tell you whether a person is doing the work or just filling the suit, and Leadsom it seems can handle a sharp suit.
Her first big mistake was giving an assurance that all EU citizens in the UK would be allowed to remain; two problems with this: first, we must have reciprocal assurances from other countries for our own citizens abroad before we agree that, and second, some of the gains of Brexit cannot be achieved unless we rid ourselves of a significant tranche of immigrants. We have five million un- or under-employed citizens and freeing up jobs for them will be a big win from leaving the EU. It will convert them from benefit recipients to taxpaying workers; everyone wins (except the displaced migrants.)
Her second mistake was to walk into a trap carefully laid by the May team. Theresa May's advisers figured out early on that Leadsom was baby bonkers: they probably got the hint when Leadsom entitled her leadership hustings speech "Brussels, Bankers and Babies" and then focused rather a lot on the babies including advice on how to massage their brains. May dutifully gave an interview in which she regretted her childlessness. Leadsom blundered straight into the minefield and claimed May was unsuitable for leadership because she did not have children. The May side then replied with synthetic outrage which dominated the headlines for a day or so. Leadsom compounded her error by claiming she hadn't said what was reported, but the tape proved she had.
So Leadsom fell by the wayside and we have May. The manner of her ascension proves that she has the "right stuff" to represent us in the Brexit talks and anecdotal accounts indicate she is a tough negotiator. The only problem is - she is not a man. She is not going to be taking Jean-Claude Druncker to Spearmint Rhino and extracting concessions from him while he stuffs angel dollars down a cleavage. All her negotiating is going to be done the hard way, around the conference table. But apparently she is good at that.
