Maybe We Should Just Riot

A transit police officer in California shot and killed a man in 2009 and his trial has just concluded. Officer Johannes Mehserle was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. He claims that he had his Tazer out and put it back and drew the wrong weapon. I don’t know if I would buy that but don’t know all that is involved. Suffice it to say that the jury believed it and he has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

The biggest problem in all of this is that the officer is white and the victim was black. Instantly there had to be some racial motivation and justice had to be served.

Well it was. In our system of justice the jury decides and this jury found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter and not murder (as the family wanted).

That did not sit well so what did the minority community in Oakland do? The same thing minority communities in California do every time they do not like a verdict, they rioted. The police and every person in town knew this was going to happen. The judge delayed the reading of the verdict to allow people to leave work and go home. Businesses were sending employees home early so they would not get caught in the rioting.

Why do we tolerate this kind of behavior?

The people who did not like the verdict lost all credibility. I do not want to hear how they feel or how upset they are or anything else. The community lost any sympathy I might have had when it decided to act like animals rather than functioning members of society.

And what happens when these folks riot? The US Department of Justice launches its own investigation into the matter. There was a trial and the guy was found guilty so why does the DOJ need to show up? They need to make sure the black community gets attention after the temper tantrum. They did it after the trial of the officers who beat Rodney King which, by the way, resulted in a riot.

Seems to be a pattern here. Throw a tantrum and get what you want. But why should people be allowed to riot and do damage to the property of others?

Did anyone see riots when OJ Simpson was found “not guilty” in what was a blatant example of payback for perceived crimes against blacks in the past? Did the DOJ show up and launch its own investigation into the Simpson murders?

No, we accepted the verdict and moved on with life.

But maybe we need to shift gears. Perhaps we need to start rioting when we do not get what we want. If the courts overturn Arizona’s law maybe we all need to riot, smash windows in Hispanic owned businesses and turn cars over in the streets. We could do this all across the country to get the point across. I would not expect the DOJ to intervene on our behalf as it is more likely it would come after us because it is headed by that racist Eric Holder.

I am not much for the rioting and violent demonstrations but it seems that this is the way to get some attention.

Besides, the liberal progressives in this country blame all violence on the peaceful members of society who conform to the rules. Pelosi still thinks TEA Party rhetoric will lead to violence.

The threats of riots and violence is a method of group intimidation and it is used effectively by minority communities to get what they want or to express dissatisfaction. Black communities riot over court cases where white cops shoot black suspects or when a black guy is convicted of killing a cop because they get attention. They feel oppressed and want attention so they throw tantrums like children.

The same is true in the Hispanic community. Pass a law they do not like, threaten to build a wall, raid workplaces or do anything else that impedes their lawbreaking and they gather in huge groups and protest.

And they get attention when they do this.

Perhaps we should consider their tactics.

I would like to have a “riot” on November 2nd this year where we all storm the polling places and vote everyone out of office. We need to show our strength in a non violent manner.

We can save the violence or when it is needed.

Like when confronted by New Black Panther Party members carrying nightsticks. If you see them this year beat them to death because the racist AG will not prosecute them for breaking the law.

To all you animals in Oakland, shame on you. Maybe an attitude like yours is what caused the shooting in the first place.

    Imagine if there had been riots when the murderer of Nicole Simpson (OJ, that is), had been freed and found not guilty (which is NOT the same thing as INNOCENT)- Blacks would have said that the riots were racist, and that the decision of a jury should prevail- same difference here.
    Like you, BD, I do not know all the facts in the case- I feel that, in the least, this was a remarkably strong indication that officers need much more training, but tazers should not ever be worn on the same side as the firearm- that is just begging for a mistake.
    Personally, I do not believe that this shooting was intentional- first, there were too many other officers around, plus all the cell cameras- anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have to know this, and police, contrary to all who just think that they are jackbooted thugs, do have intelligence tests- this officer used wrong judgement, with tragic results. My heart goes out to the victim’s family, but not every shooting is an intentional one, with racist overtones- as Freud once said, “sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”
    And sometimes a tragic shooting is just that, nothing more.

  2. The goings-on in Oakland might be a trial balloon. Remember the concurrent scandal on the other side of the continent: the New Black Panther voter intimidation matter. There are activist racialist groups whose leaderships have wondered, in the aftermath of the Holder/Obama DOJ decision not to press on with that case, whether they might get away with pushing the outside of the envelope still further. The overall response (not just the police response) to the Oakland disturbances will be much on their minds, whichever way it runs.

    Alongside that, white Americans have grown ever more uneasy about the state of race relations in America. We have a de facto open southern border that the Obamunists are trying to keep open. Hispanics already in this country have been shrieking that to close it, as Arizona has proposed to do with its own resources, amounts to racial discrimination. (NB: Hispanics are racially Caucasian — white.) So those of us whose allegiances are to this country — and yes, that includes many Hispanic immigrants and persons of Hispanic descent — are getting nearer to the trigger point at which agitator becomes a synonym for target.

    There isn’t a locale on the Northeastern Seaboard where there’s no sense of invasion. Even in my tranquil little village, you can feel the tension rising. Menacing-looking Negroes in thuggish garb loom near doorways, on street corners, and at the entrances to stores and shopping centers. Hordes of illegal immigrants cluster around every gas station and convenience store. We’ve even suffered a few probings by Mara Salvatrucha-13.

    For my part, I’ve just bought a second AR-15 and ordered another 2000 rounds of 5.56 NATO. I don’t want to have to use them, but if I must, I will — and I’ll be chanting Rudyard Kipling while I do it:

    “Let the corn be all one sheaf,
    And the grapes be all one vine,
    Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
    By bitter bread and wine.”

    (The Stranger)

    Merely one part of the penance we’re foredoomed to pay for our sins.

      It is better to be armed and not need the weapons than to need them and be unarmed.

      I recommend you buy your ammo from They have good prices and a variety. Stay away from Wolf ammo (the Russian stuff). They have a variety of good stuff from which to choose (I even got some on stripper clips).

      The price you see is the price you pay as shipping is free.

      If you can find the mini-14 in the .308 cal. get that one- the guys I have spoken to say the stopping power is better-
      As to the Oakland thing, the Socialist and Marxist websites had calls for people to gather even before the sentence was announced, so this was NOT a “grassroots” thing, but a well planned riot- a precursor to the “Emergency” that Hussein will declare before the elections, so that he can suspend peoples’ rights, much as Lincoln did in the War of Northern Aggression.
      Say bye bye to Habeas Corpus, and the Fourth Amendment, say hello to the new Army of Hussein when they come for your guns, yada, yada, yada-
      If this doesn’t happen, label me paranoid- bubt I think it very well might, given some of the nuts in the WH.
