    In the days of newspapers, it cost money for paper and ink, and the heavy newspapers needed to be delivered. Therefore newspapers had editors to see that vomitus like this never saw the light of day.

    Articles like this are what the old saying, “not worth the paper it’s printed on” was for.

    This is literacy porn.

    No offense to you for posting it, 2dvet. Someone has to understand what the loonies are up to. Hope the FBI is aware of this “activist.”

    "The police in this country began as a slave patrol,"

    If she expects people to take her seriously, she should at least stop lying.

    The first municipal police forces in the United States:

    Boston - 1838; New York City - 1845; Albany - 1851; Chicago, 1851

    None of these cities had need of a "slave patrol" - so there was obviously some other non-slave-related reason for organizing paid police forces.

    Note to race-baiters: Not EVERYTHING is about race.

    One of the things these idiots forget is that the police are there to protect THEM.

    With no police, the law-abiding would get tired of crime, notice a common factor in perpetrators, and take appropriate action, which might be unfortunate for certain communities.

    I think that the effect of abolishing police in the cities might not be ss bad as one might think. In the cities, police are just as likely, if not more so, to arrest a law abiding citizen exercising his 2nd Amendment rights for a “gun crime” as they are to arrest a murderer, robber etc. Remove the police and you get rid of “gun crimes”. Hence more law abiding citizens will be armed, effectively INCREASING police presence.

    After all, what is a police officer? When discussing crime and gun control liberals like to talk as though policemen are some magical solution as in “You don’t need a gun; call the police.” Of course police officers are really nothing more than law abiding citizens carrying guns. They are highly trained to do what they do, and they certainly have my respect for doing it, but that’s really what they are. Creating larger numbers of law abiding citizens with guns certainly would be a positive development.

    I would gladly trade all police protection for the right to defend myself and my family with any and all means at my disposal.

    Police do not protect you from crminals they clean up after them.

    Now I will say this. I believe the true answer is to let all Americans defend themselves with any and all means at their disposal, and drastically reduce the police force.

    Due to the fact that police can take ones freedom, police necessarily need to be very moral and just. The fact of the matter is that very few have the morals to be a true justice of the peace. Therefore their numbers need to be small and their vetting process massive.

    A well armed citizenry, allowed to justly defend itself, can lead to a small enough police force, that it can be filled only with the good people and throw out the bad immediately.

    I agree. Sheriffs are accountable. I had some serious negative interactions with power hungry fed cops from the Dept of Interior a few years back. Zero accountability since they did not have a LEO chain of command. That’s when I started comparing fed cops to the others.

    Feds are accountable to someone appointed by the political party in charge which is a bad situation. Proof is Hillary being let off by the FBI.

    I’d certainly consider replacing police with elected, pro-2nd amendment, constitutional sheriffs. Elected sheriffs are accountable to the people via the ballot box. Police chiefs are not.

    This seems to have been a theme from Obama for the last several years.

    #BLM are Obama’s organized red guards, permitted, advised and guided by the DOJ for the purpose of street agitation and pushing an agenda. That should be clear to everyone from the start.

    So I asked myself, what is their target? I realized a main target is the independence of local police forces. Look at the coordinated efforts to control police through civil rights enforcement, training, funding, etc... in the wake of Ferguson.

    Abolishing the police only makes sense if you have an ethnically homogenous, naturally low crime (i.e. white) population (after all, we didn’t have police departments until the mid 19th century anywise, and then it was mostly in large cities). You could successfully not have police if the USA was basically all-white and much more rural or suburban than it is now. In such a case, the old “hue-and-cry” system would probably be quite successful.

    However, with the massive population of Dindunuffins and Hispanic gangs in our cities, abolishing the police is not a creditable plan made by people who are actually interested in freedom, etc. It’s just a way for the Dindus and Hispanics to be able to run wild without having to worry about whitey’s laws getting in the way.

    Not to say that one had no alternative. The cry “Stop, THIEF” in those days precipitated a response from the public that could be excessive in proportion. The arrival of police in those days was more to protect the criminal in many instances.

    Back in the 1970's in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the police went on strike at one point. Crime went DOWN. The citizens started patrolling their neighborhoods with their guns, and the criminals understood that the citizen patrols were not taking prisoners.

    The people who call for abolishing the police refuse to understand that the result will be a return of lynching.

    In case anyone didn't know, the original Black Panthers were a communist-revolutionary domestic terrorist group like Bill Ayers' Weather Underground and the Black Liberation Army. All were Maoist to be precise.

    Hillary and the [original 1960s] Black Panthers: The Real Story

    Legaled.com ^ | Aug 19, 2003 | Richard Poe

    I can't take it anymore. If one more person sends me that e-mail about Hillary and the Black Panthers, I'll have to be dragged away screaming in a straitjacket.

    You know the e-mail I'm talking about. It accuses Hillary of helping the Black Panthers get away with torture and murder during the early 1970s. With the 2004 presidential race drawing near, the spam mills are creaking to life, flooding the Internet once more with this agitprop classic.

    Unfortunately, the e-mail mingles good information with bad, sowing more confusion than enlightenment. Some versions, for instance, carry the byline of radio talk jock Paul Harvey, who says he did not write it. Such misrepresentations help Hillary defenders dismiss the e-mail as a hoax.

    The story is no hoax, though. Its basic elements can be found in respected Hillary biographies and exposes such as Barbara Olson's "Hell to Pay," David Brock's "The Seduction of Hillary Rodham," Joyce Milton's "The First Partner" and Carl Limbacher's "Hillary's Scheme."

    Here are the facts:

    In May 1969, fishermen discovered the body of Black Panther Alex Rackley floating in Connecticut's Coginchaug River. Rackley's captors had clubbed him, burned him with cigarettes, scalded him with boiling water and stabbed him with an ice pick before finally shooting him in the head.

    New Haven detectives learned that the Panthers suspected Rackley of being a police informer. Panther enforcers had tied him to a chair and tortured him for hours. Police arrested eight Panthers and later extradited Panther leader Bobby Seale from California, after a witness accused Seale of ordering Rackley's death. (1)

    Campus radicals supported the Panthers. They organized mass protests in support of the so-called "New Haven Nine." Hillary was right in the thick of it.

    By the time she entered Yale Law School in 1969, Hillary was already a radical celebrity on campus. Life magazine had featured Hillary in a piece titled, "The Class of '69," which showcased three student activists whom Life's editors deemed the best and brightest of the year. A line Hillary used in her Wellesley College commencement speech appeared under her photo: "Protest is an attempt to forge an identity." (2)

    At Yale, Hillary helped edit the Yale Review of Law and Social Action -- a left-wing journal which promoted cop-killing and featured cartoons of pig-faced police. (3)

    A series of hard-Left mentors introduced Hillary to the brass-knuckle realities of revolutionary activism. As a Wellesley undergraduate, she met and interviewed radical organizer Saul Alinsky, whose Machiavellian tactics she admired. Hillary's senior thesis supported Alinsky's call for class warfare. (4)

    At Yale, Hillary found a new Svengali in the form of left-wing law professor Thomas Emerson, known around campus as "Tommy the Commie." Emerson recruited Hillary and other students to help monitor the trial of the New Haven Nine for civil rights violations. Hillary took charge of the operation, scheduling the students in shifts, so that student monitors would always be present in the courtroom. She befriended and worked closely with Panther lawyer Charles Garry. (5)

    Some believe that the enormous pressure exerted by the Left helped ensure light sentences for the New Haven Nine. Whether or not this is true, the punishments were mild.

    "Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977," reports John McCaslin in the Washington Times. "The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley's torture, got elected to a California school board." (6)

    Hillary's defenders argue that she played no "significant" role in the New Haven Nine's defense. This is semantic hairsplitting. Obviously, Hillary was less "significant" than Charles Garry or "Tommy the Commie" Emerson. But Hillary served as a trusted lieutenant to these movers and shakers. Moreover, she had a national profile as a campus activist. Hillary was no rank-and-file student protester, as her apologists claim.

    Indeed, Hillary's work for the Panthers won her a summer internship at the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft in 1972. A hardline Stalinist, Treuhaft had quit the Communist Party in 1958 only because it was losing members and no longer provided a good platform for his activism. (7) "Treuhaft is a man who dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB," notes historian Stephen Schwartz. (8)

    The defense of the New Haven Nine marked Hillary's initiation into the sinister underworld of the hard-core, revolutionary Left. To my knowledge, Hillary has never publicly renounced nor apologized for her role in that movement.

    "On May 1st, May Day [1969], the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo [the police].

    Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.

    The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."

    To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

    Statement from Carl Dix:

    Milwaukee Explodes in Righteous Rebellion as Police Kill Again!

    August 14, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us

    Saturday night people in Milwaukee poured into the streets in rebellion after police gunned down another Black man. The authorities wasted no time in demonizing the person gunned down, 23-year-old Sylville Smith—saying that he was armed and had a lengthy criminal record—trying to justify the murderous actions of their cops. But still people took to the streets, in the face of cops flooding the neighborhood armed to the teeth and even shooting at people to try to force them to disperse. People have righteously defended themselves in the face of this savage pig violence.

    This rebellion is right on time. Despite police wearing body cameras, despite Department of Justice reports that expose the racism and abuse in police departments across the country, despite commission meetings and talk of reforms, police continue to kill people again and again. And the whole system continues to exonerate the killer cops when their murderous deeds get dragged into the light of day. People in Milwaukee have refused to accept this state-sponsored murder in silence, and they are right to do so. And everyone who stands for justice must have their backs.

    This spirit must be built on and spread. In order to end the horror of police getting away with murder, it has to become part of an actual revolution; one that overthrows this system, defeating and dismantling its institutions of violent suppression, and brings into being a totally different and far better system. We need to live in a world where those responsible for public security would sooner lose their own lives than kill or injure an innocent person. It’ll take a revolution to bring that kind of world into being.

    The Revolutionary Communist Party is organizing right now for that actual revolution. The Party is preparing the ground—influencing people and society as a whole toward revolution and toward fighting the outrages of society… the Party is preparing the people—raising people’s sights to the different world that is possible and the leadership we have in Bob Avakian and the Party he leads to realize that world… and preparing the vanguard—getting ready for the time when millions can be led to go for revolution, all-out, with a real chance to win.

    If you hate seeing police murder Black people and others again and again, if you want to see a world where this horror is no more, get with the RCP and the ACTUAL revolution it is organizing! Go to www.revcom.us and join with the Revolution Club. Get organized for an actual revolution!

    'Rev' is for revolutionary.
    'Com' is for communist
    .

    Revcom.us bills itself as "the voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA." The explicit objective is to overthrow our constitutional republic and replace it with an oligarchical collectivist dictatorship along the lines of North Korea and the Soviet Union.

    Why would advocates of a communist police state agitate against the police? Because as leftists used to admit openly, the issue is never the issue. This isn't about the police, any more than it is about blacks. It is about destabilizing the system so as to create opportunities to weaken it and eventually overthrow it.

    That's what community organizing boils down to. These people have taken over the executive branch of the federal government; why would they stop there?

    The next hill they take will be federal control of local police. After that, things will start to get scary.

    The 1992 LA/Rodney King riots were instigated by the Revolutionary Communist Party...

    From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:

    "Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.

    Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"

    Actually it’s already been tried in much of Detroit and Muslim majority neighbourhoods throughout Europe. When the police stop patrolling chaos ensues. Much of Chicago is already an impenetrable slum where the police act as body collectors, not law enforcers, because of the lack of cooperation from those they are trying to protect. America’s inner cities - like much of Africa - has returned to the law of the jungle. It’s worse than the Wild West because there are no good guys.

    Go for it.

    The places I usually hang my hat, Texas, southwest, etc., would keep on marching along and the criminals would find that the absence of police would just hasten the justice aspect.

    However, the jungles of the inner cities would become an actual hell on earth, and deservedly so.

    If they abolish the police they might as well abolish the prisons and the rule of law. Chicago should try it first and see how well it works for them.

    It is an interesting question. Read Crichton’s “Great Train Robbery”.

    He deals not just with the question of the robbery itself but the early development of the police. He points out that early on the people hired to do the job were the ones who knew the most about crime. Criminals. The result, in not a few cases, was predictable. The people one turned to when victimized by crime were but a notch above the perpetrators.

    Not to say that one had no alternative. The cry “Stop, THIEF” in those days precipitated a response from the public that could be excessive in proportion. The arrival of police in those days was more to protect the criminal in many instances.

    Centuries of development of professional policing have helped greatly but has also reduced the public resistance to and acceptance of crime.

    Notice as well that prisons long predated the invention of police. In fact, the LAST piece of our system of justice was the police.

    In Berlin I don’t even know where the local police station is. And we been living in this place for the last 9 years. I hardly see the police. I need to get around more it seems.

    Come to think of it I am sure there is no local police station. We live on a peninsula.

    I always think of the old song, “I fought the law, and the law won” . This was the limit of rebellion. The song recognized and celebrated the rebellious spirit, but accepted the context of inevitable consequences.

    Now, not so much.

    Soros and company are attempting to delegitimize the police to destabalize the nation.

    Rather than accept failed DemonCrat policies and politicians are responsible for the crime-ridden neighborhoods in all of our major cities, they externalize the blame by telling the Big Lie. The Big Lie is even though the president is black, the AG, the mayors in the major cities, there’s some evil white man conspiracy to kill innocent blacks via the police.

    Instead of calling 9-1-1 and stopping crime, they’d prefer greater chaos.

    Why?

    To create a crisis. The solution to the crisis will be confiscate all guns “fast like Australia did” (Matt Damon said this last month). Then have a federal police only. No local (state or sheriff). National police under the control of the president (Hillary).

    First step though is to create the crisis. They also want to keep blacks on the Democrat plantation by keeping them in the victim mentality.

    Doesn’t matter if it creates chaos and endangers the lives of police officers and victims. Small price to pay on the great march forward toward total federal control over all policing and confiscation of all guns to stop resistance.

    You’re right. These ladies have no trouble articulating our (Trump’s) position on the issues. They have their own unique style and good humor to go with it. They show a LOT of courage too. I just love them!
