  • Charlotte rioters don’t care if shooting was justified

    The National Post ^ | September 26, 2016 | Rich Lowry
    The Charlotte rioters didn’t know whether the controversial police shooting of Keith Scott was justified, and didn’t care. They worked their mayhem — trashing businesses and injuring cops, with one protester killed in the disorder — before anything meaningful could be ascertained about the case except that the cops said Scott had a gun and his family said he didn’t. Charlotte is the latest episode in the evidence-free Black Lives Matter movement that periodically erupts in violence after officer-involved shootings. The movement is beholden to a narrative of systematic police racism to which every case is made to conform, regardless...

    Celebrating the racial diversity of the Charlotte protesters last week, William Barber II, chairman of the North Carolina NAACP, proudly proclaimed, "This is what democracy looks like." Well, if Barber is right, so, too, was John Adams, who warned us that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." Consider what the protesters, who, exults Barber, "show us a way forward to peace and justice," accomplished. In the first two nights of rioting, the mob injured a dozen cops, beat white people, smashed and looted stores,...

    Since policing is a problem, the police should be removed from communities altogether, according to Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza. Garza argued that the United States gives too much respect to police officers, explaining that when police do wrong, a few bad cops are blamed, rather than a “corroded and corrupt system.” “Quite frankly, many of our [Black Lives Matter] members are continuing to investigate what it would mean to have police-free

    Police killings of black people in the United States are reminiscent of lynchings and the government must do far more to protect them, a United Nations working group says in a report that will be debated at the U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday. The hard-hitting criticism - drawing a comparison between modern police behaviour and mob killings of blacks in the 19th and 20th centuries - comes at a time of renewed racial tension in the United States. This week Charlotte, North Carolina, saw street riots over the shooting of a black man, Keith Scott, by a black police...

    A local NAACP leader told CNN’s Carol Costello Thursday that it didn’t actually matter whether or not black Charlotte man Keith Scott had a gun on him when he was shot and killed by police. Scott’s death led to protests and violence for the past two days, after his family reported that he was holding a book when he died. Charlotte police have called that false, saying that police body camera footage shows he was brandishing a gun and that they recovered a weapon from the scene. But the president of the Charlotte chapter of the NAACP Corine Mack said...

The black teenager was shot 16 times in 2014 by a white Chicago police officer. Graphic squad-car video of the shooting was released last year, prompting citywide protests, police leadership changes and a U.S. Department of Justice investigation.

    Hillary Clinton was sporting a mini earbud wired to receive stealth communications from her campaign handlers during Wednesday’s Presidential Forum carried live on NBC, True Pundit has learned. While Clinton was fielding questions from NBC’s Matt Lauer and the public Wednesday night on live television, a quiet buzz started circulating in New York law enforcement circles about Hillary’s left ear.

The skin-tone piece Clinton was wearing, however, was somewhat different from...

    Speaking at the G20 Summit in China Monday, President Obama weighed in on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the National Anthem before games, saying the "young man" is simply exercising his constitutional rights. Obama also said Kaepernick's actions are hard for military members and those who have served to "get past." "My understanding at least is that heÂ’s exercising his constitutional right to make a statement," Obama said. "If nothing else what heÂ’s done is heÂ’s generated more conversation around some topics that need to be talked about." "As a general matter when it comes to the...

    A new poll undercuts one of the foundational principles of the Black Lives Matter movement, which views police as antagonists of black Americans. The Aug. 31 Marquette University Law School poll found that while there were differences in how whites and non-whites view police, majorities in both demographic groups support law enforcement. The poll of 803 registered Wisconsin voters came days after civil unrest in Milwaukee that followed the police shooting of a black man. In that case, 23-year-old Sylville Smith was shot dead after he ran from officers and pulled a gun, with officials saying the body cameras worn...
