Have you ever missed a flight because you were running late? Have you ever asked the counter to call ahead and ask them not to shut the door because you were on your way only to find your flight being pushed away when you arrive at the gate?
If you are Socialist Mayor of New York Bill De Blasio you don’t have to worry about such things because you can have your security folks call the airlines and hold the plane for you.
Notoriously late Mayor Bill de Blasio kept more than 100 people waiting at the gate to board a JetBlue flight from JFK Airport to Puerto Rico last month because he was running late and had the plane held for him, DNAinfo New York has learned. DNA Info
The people who made it on time were not only held up but they were not allowed to board the plane until the Socialist royalty arrived and his security folks could do a sweep of the plane. Why do they need to do that? Are not the plane and the airport supposed to be secure? We spend billions of dollars for security so why does his detail need to clear the plane?
Why is it this guy is entitled to special treatment? The airline reportedly stated that they sometimes hold aircraft for dignitaries as a courtesy.
In other words, you peons need to get to the airport extra early so some TSA goon can feel you up and rummage through your undershorts while De Blasio and other special folks arrive at their own leisure and if they happen to be late you can just wait a little longer while your betters are taken care of.
The airline should have boarded the passengers who were responsible enough to get there on time and if the mayor was not there when the doors closed he could be rescheduled for another flight.
Do you suppose Billy boy would allow you to call court and tell them to hold the docket up until you arrived because you were running late?
I think we all know the answer to that. Rules and being responsible are for the serfs in society. Our overlords are not responsible and they certainly do not follow the rules.
New York deserves this puke.
The airline deserves to be fined.
The passengers who were inconvenienced deserve a refund…
Or free drinks!
Never surrender, never submit.

Russell Simmon, founder of Def Jam Recordings, is up in arms about the recent Grand Jury decisions regarding police officers and black men who died in an encounter with them. Simmons basically hinted that if there is not justice and if the demands he and other famous folks are not met regarding indictments then there will be even more hell to pay.
Simmons seems to think there is a war on black people by the cops (and some of the encounters are clearly cops doing wrong) while he ignores the epidemic of black on black murder in this country (mostly in liberal run cities).
Perhaps Simmons ignores the black on black crime because the music he produces encourages that particular type of culture. Perhaps he ignores it because the thug culture espoused in that music is part of the problem and he is contributing to it.
Well Russ, you are also responsible for many of the encounters where black thugs are rightly killed by cops.
The genre of music you produce also pushes hatred for cops, espouses cop killing and shows disrespect for the rule of law.
Yeah, you are part of the problem moron and if you push for even more civil unrest you might not like the outcome.
But at least you will be able to make money producing a song about it. You can call it Bitch Thug Got Whacked…..
Never surrender, never submit.

B. Hussein Obama is looking to provide federal money (read taxpayer money) to equip police departments across the nation with body cameras that are worn by police officers so that everything they do (every encounter) is recorded.
It is not the place of the federal government to be doling out our money for things that affect state and local law enforcement. If individual states or localities want these cameras then they should pay for them. Federal tax dollars do not belong paying for these things but that is an issue for another day.
For today I am wondering how Obama or anyone else thinks cameras worn by police officers would make a difference. I have no issue with police officers wearing body cameras though I fail to see what value they have.
Let me explain. The body camera would record what the officer and the person with whom that officer interacted did. It would show who did what and it would either corroborate or refute the stories of the participants. So far that all seems good and who could argue with that? Hell, if Officer Wilson had been wearing a body camera we would know exactly what happened between him and Michael Brown.
But would it have mattered?
In Ferguson it would not matter. People were looking for a reason to riot and loot and cause mayhem. They would have done the same thing if Wilson had been indicted. The race pimps and the Media stoked that fire real good.
A camera in the Ferguson case might have shown Wilson to be lying but would it have resulted in an indictment? Given the evidence presented in the absence of a video I feel he should not have been indicted but I also know, based on cases where video IS available, he would likely not have been indicted even if the entire encounter had been recorded.
There are ample cases on the internet where police officers are recorded clearly violating the law and the rights of citizens. There are videos of officers shooting people (and dogs) for no reason. These police officers who are armed with batons, heavy flashlights (that can be used as a baton), Tasers, pepper spray and a firearm need only say they feared for their lives and they are deemed to have been justified in their actions even though these actions are taken against people who are UNARMED (since that seems to be a buzz word in the Brown case). I know I have said that unarmed does not mean harmless and I have seen plenty of videos where offices were perfectly justified in shooting unarmed people.
In those cases it is usually pretty clear. In those where the outrage is present it is usually obvious that the officer used excessive force. In these cases, where it is all caught in video, the officers are not indicted and are deemed to have acted appropriately and “within their training and department guidelines.”
So would a body camera make a difference?
The city of New York is having its turn at outrage over a Grand Jury decision. In this case an officer was not indicted for the death of a person who resisted arrest, was encountered by the officer and taken down. The guy ended up dying and it was all recorded. In the recording the person is taken to the ground and placed in some kind of choke hold and he is heard gasping and wheezing and saying that he can’t breathe. At what point does it become obvious the guy is in distress?
If this were a lone cop (the suspect was quite large) one might conclude that he did not let go because that could have been a ruse to attack the officer. But there are several other police officers present. All the cop on the ground has to say to his fellow officers is grab his arms guys, sir I am going to let you go so you can breathe but if you resist we will be right back where we started. With several other cops present there was no reason for this. [Please police officers save your righteous indignation and don’t waste my time telling me how tough it is on the street. Four or five armed to the teeth guys can handle a man who is having trouble breathing and who is NOT fighting. If not, turn in you badges.]
“All over America, cops are getting away with this,” added 22-year-old Demetri Green. “They’re the real gang in New York City. They’re the real gang in this county.” New York Daily News
In my opinion there was no need to begin with. This man was accused of selling untaxed cigarettes. Was it OK for him to die because he was allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes? It is not like this guy committed some violent felony and his resistance was non violent. He was simply accused of selling something the state did not get a cut of.
In my opinion those who said Trayvon was shot for carrying Skillets (Skittles to the literate among us) and that Mike Brown was shot for walking in the street are idiots and ignored the facts in the case. Both of the people killed in these cases were VIOLENT. They were attacking someone. The guy in New York was not attacking anyone. He was selling an untaxed tobacco product.
The question should not be whether the officer followed procedure it should be was his response appropriate for the infraction and was the result of his actions an acceptable consequence of the person’s crime. In other words, was too much force used for a guy allegedly committing a non violent crime? Hell, they don’t treat people carrying small amounts of marijuana in New York the way they treated the victim here and he had a LEGAL product when the police killed him.
Given the video that shows the entire episode (the video came from a bystander) and given the reality that a lot of force was used for a non violent crime and given the man can be heard gasping and wheezing and saying he could not breathe and given the medical examiner ruled this a homicide a reasonable person could conclude that the officer went overboard and caused this man’s death. The Grand Jury did not see it that way and refused to indict.
It is rare for a police officer to go before the Grand Jury for these things and it is rare for any officer to be found guilty of a crime when he uses force while doing his job even if it is clear that what he did was wrong (and would be illegal if we did it). This is true even when video evidence is present.
So I ask, what good would body cameras do?
It seems to me the cameras would only beneift cops. They could prove a citizen’s claim of abuse, foul language, or racial bias was untrue (as happened recently). Since clear video evidence of police wrong doing does not hold them accountable it is unlikely their own recordings would…
It will be interesting to see what happens in Ohio where it is obvious a cop murdered a child. The kid was playing with a toy gun and the police were called. When they arrive one of the Miami Vice wanna be cops shoots the kid dead seemingly before the police car comes to a stop. If this guy is found to have acted appropriately then maybe we really do need to burn the place to the ground and start over…
Obama Body Cam Request Takes a Hit

Several member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) were on the floor of the House Monday and they put their hands up in the gesture that symbolizes the lack of honesty regarding the Michael Brown shooting. The facts in the case have been presented and there is evidence, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Brown DID NOT put his hands up to surrender and he was not shot with his hands up.
That has not stopped the race baiters and members of the victim class who continue to use this gesture as if it actually happened. They have admitted that even though there is no evidence that Brown had his hands up they are still using the gesture as a sign of the movement.
Basically, they are continuing down a path shown to be false in order to push a false narrative and that is a gentle giant Teddy Bear of a man was ruthlessly murdered by a rogue white cop for the crime of being black.
It is a shame that Brown was murdered but he brought that on himself through his actions. Attack a man with a gun, especially a cop, and you are probably going to get shot.
I know a lot of people in the victim community like those in the CBC believe there is some large scale eradication of blacks by cops (particularly white cops) but this is not true. If you are a black male you are many times more likely to meet your demise at the hands of another black male than by those of a cop of any color. The facts are plain and easy to see. Black on black violence is a much larger problem, or to put it in the words of the CBC, an injustice.
Some members of the Saint Louis Rams (5 black players) entered the field on Sunday in the same hands up pose. They too were making a statement that was contrary to the facts in the case. Interestingly, the team was in contact with the police all week seeking assurances that its players and staff would be protected from protesters. They asked for protection from the police and then insulted police officers with that gesture.
I think it was appropriate for the members of Congress as well as those football players to raise their hands in a fashion indicative of surrendering to law enforcement because most of the members of both groups are criminals.
I do not know whether these acts upheld the tradition and decorum of the Congress but it was appropriate given the number of criminals in Congress. Most of these folks lie cheat and steal and they break all kinds of laws and rules each and every day. Hell, if they are not breaking the law they are condoning others doing so.
One other benefit of these members raising their arms so you can see their hands is that as long as they are visible you know they are not in your pockets.
As for the football players; while there are some good, decent human beings in the NFL a large number of them are or were criminals who have rap sheets that rival many gang members. The group has thieves, thugs, abusers and drug users/pushers. Several have been accused of murder (one is awaiting trial). The only difference between many of these guys and a street gang is the NFL has wealthier thugs who generally dress nicer.
So while all these folks have their hands up they could do us all a favor and surrender to the police and confess their crimes.
That would be the most useful use of this gesture since it reflects more accurately on these folks than what took place in Ferguson.
Never surrender, never submit.
