"What was Sheriff Mahoney’s reward for being sufficiently 'woke'? The social justice warriors stormed his home Tuesday..."

"... his private residence, where he lives with his family — to pretty it up with their anti-cop doggerel. Those included demands that all black jail inmates be released forthwith. At least they did not vandalize his house. But it is trespassing."

Well, why not? He demonstrated he was "sheriff" in title only. What did the thugs have to fear?

I am sure that his wife and family were so very impressed with him standing guard over them, protecting them with his shield of "wokeness"!

Don't worry though, if a coward that hid behind a pole while kids were shot and terrorized while he failed to do his job AND actively prevented others from doing theirs, Mahoney will suffer no long term job issues.

When will they realize that NO one is safe from the mob. Doesn't matter how much you pose and pander to them. You are not safe or magically protected.

The answer is never. Rules and consequences are for OTHER people. The "politically correct" craven fools are deluding themselves.

It's a message. It says "We know where you live and you can't stop us. This time flowers. Next time gunfire and molotov cocktails."

That's the message to the sheriff.

The message to the punters is: "If the cops can't protect the sheriff, why do you think they will protect you. If we can do it to him, how much softer a target will you be?"

As I said before, I hope you and Meade are armed and know how to use them.

This is the Left's next step. Appear in front of the homes of politicians they don't like and scream at them and do other bad things. They Left protested outside the home of the Hennepin County Attorney and harassed him before the murder charges were filed.

This is different from protesting in front of a Governor's mansion; government housing.

I'm afraid this will happen in Omaha. The Governor of Nebraska has a home in Fairacres; the old money "estate" area of Omaha. His son was mugged on the street not too long ago. And the Douglas County Attorney (a Democrat) decided not to bring charges in the death of a black rioter. I could see him being harassed at home too. The Left wants a grand jury.

Chief: you are never sufficiently woke. What you say doesn't matter. "I am on your side" is irrelevant. If anything, it exposes you as a naive and easy target.

Read a little history, and learn. Danegeld encouraged the Danes. Show confessions at show trials did no good. Self-denunciations didn't stop the Red Guards.

When warriors are after you, you have a choice: submit or fight.

By the way, Althouse, I appreciate your courage.

This makes sense only if you're willing to recognize two distinct groups. First is American liberals who are interested in wokeness and who is woke and who isn't. Second is a European Socialist who is funding US political organizations and US politicians to move the United States system closer to the strong form of European Socialism.

The second group is exploiting the first...

To me "stormed" means entered by force. From the picture and description of events it doesn't look like anyone was inside at all, but rather that they left messages on his lawn. Still alarming as in "we know where you live", but a world of difference from violent entry.

Those included demands that all black jail inmates be released forthwith.

Also, Blacks should be officially permitted to evade and resist arrest.

It would be foolhardy to vandalize an armed man's house.

Richard Fagin said...

With reference to the supervening post on this blog, no rational person would have tried assaulting Frank Rizzo's house. It seems to be an unfortunate aspect of human behavior that a little repression is sometimes a good thing, in that it reduces the need for more serious repression later on.

Yancey Ward said...

Mike Sylvester made a good point- far less looting last night because they looted everything in reach the previous week. Just waiting for the stores to restock and reopen, which I predict they won't do before the Fall. Getting and keeping any kind of insurance is going to become prohibitive.

He should have tried yelling “we’re on your side!”. I hear that usually works.

The Soros strategy of funding the campaigns of radical DAs throughout the country has been quite effective for the Left. Utterly evil, but effective.

I wonder how the sheriff's neighbors feel?

Leftists have already liberated most of the TVs and Under Armour apparel in the area. It was only a matter of time before they got around to black inmates.

The Black color bloc and 1/2 Americans should be able to assault, abort, perhaps to lynch (a la Progressive South Africa) with audacity and hope. Diversity breeds adversity. #HateLovesAbortion

First is American liberals who are interested in wokeness and who is woke and who isn't. Second is a European Socialist

It is obvious that this whole protest riot strategy was well planned in advance due to anti-Trumpness, the Minneapolis thing was just a nice trigger that played well for the elite leaders of the Democrat forces.

William said...

We are non-violent protesters who leave tokens of our love and peace on your lawn. We reserve the right, however, to change our minds regarding love and peace should you prove to be not on board with our notions of love and peace which are the only permissible notions of love and peace. Too many people in America do not have the proper notions of love and peace and need to be taken out by any means necessary.

Can someone provide me with real numbers as to blacks killed by white cops versus whites killed by white cops? I asked that question on a family zoom call today. My lefty brother immediately started his normal lefty condescending and arrogant attitude but never answered the question.
He’s the perfect example of lefties who think they are morally superior to us lowly deplorables - want to guess which one of us routinely visits our sister in the nursing home, and checks on our brother-in-law versus not once in three years?

After 16 trimesters of witch hunts and warlock judgments, and with Her Choice (e.g. pathogenic contagion) rapidly progressing, the left needed a forward-looking plan to restore order.

I'll try to find a link but a guest on Tucker Carlson's show last night rattled off some FBI stats: I believe there were 19 unarmed white men killed by police last year and 9 unarmed black men. In the entire country. I don't know what the racial composition of the cops were.

Many more cops were killed in the line of duty.

Fernandinande said...

Can someone provide me with real numbers as to blacks killed by white cops versus whites killed by white cops?

We find no evidence of anti-Black or anti-Hispanic disparities across shootings, and White officers are not more likely[*] to shoot minority civilians than non-White officers.

"In sum, as the percentage of Black or Hispanic officers increased, the likelihood that a civilian fatally shot was Black or Hispanic (respectively) also increased."

[*] Notice the weird phrasing "not more likely", rather than saying "less likely", because even this report is reluctant to straightforwardly and truthfully say that black cops are more likely to shoot blacks than white cops are. They do say it, but in convoluted language that doesn't lend itself it sound bites, like the 2nd paragraph I posted.

Here are some numbers." They dishonestly or (inclusive "or") incompetently editorialize "Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing," even as their own numbers show the opposite.

Some folks seem a little confused about the goals of the protests. "A group of mostly white “progressives”, purportedly supporting Black Lives Matter, show up to the home of San Francisco’s black mayor, London Breed, and light up the modern day equivalent of torches."

Never again listen to any Democrat who yaps about the "rule of law".

They don't believe it. Once they deem themselves sufficiently woke about a tragic event, the laws against arson, theft, trespass, and murder are thrown out the window.

I have not heard a single honest intelligent statement out of these rioters, except the one who got caught looting and said "We just need some money."

They certainly are not capable of discerning the difference between political friend and enemy.

Bice: A group getting millions in state tax money is leading Madison's protests and calling for defunding of police departments
Daniel Bice, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 2:26 p.m. CT June 2, 2020 | Updated 4:09 p.m. CT June 2, 2020

Freedom Inc. isn't shy about pushing its radical rhetoric.
The Madison-based nonprofit has advocated for the release of all African Americans from jail and the defunding of police departments. As for the current protests, the group's leaders say "all actions against racist state violence are justified."

“Stop murdering black people, and your glass will be safe," Monica Adams, co-executive director for Freedom Inc., said while leading the third day of police protests in the state's capital on Monday.

"Thank all the youth freedom fighters who were in the streets fighting (Sunday) night and Saturday night," said Mahnker Dahnweih, community power-building coordinator for Freedom Inc. "Every action is a contribution to liberation.”

So where does a group like this get the money it needs to promote its agenda?
A lot of it comes from you.
Records show that the state has awarded contracts and grants worth $3.6 million to Freedom Inc., which advocates for minority and LGBTQ communities, over the past five years.
That includes $876,674 in federal grants awarded by the state Department of Justice since January 2019, when Attorney General Josh Kaul took office. The state Department of Children and Families has paid out $732,403 to Freedom Inc. under Gov. Tony Evers over the past 1½ years.

That's a lot of money for an organization that reported a total budget of $3.3 million in 2018, according to federal tax records. Freedom Inc.'s income has increased tenfold since 2014, when it reported revenue of just $311,670.

Adams' salary has doubled in the past few years. She reported earning an annual paycheck of $104,230 in 2018 — up from $52,154 two years prior.

The group has a net fund balance exceeding $2 million.

It lists its purpose on tax forms as trying to "achieve social justice through coupling direct services with leadership development and community organizing."

State Sen. Steve Nass, a Whitewater Republican, said he was concerned that state tax dollars may be going to help Freedom Inc.'s "radical" political agenda. He called on the governor and attorney general, both Democrats, to investigate.
"The taxpayers of Wisconsin should not be funding any group that supports rioting, looting and actions to terrorize citizens with street violence," Nass said.
"Governor Evers and Attorney General Kaul have the duty to determine that the grant funds they issued to this extremist group are not being used in any way to subsidize the street violence of the last several days.”
It wasn't just Nass, however, who was upset with Freedom Inc.'s words and actions.
John "Sly" Sylvester, a liberal radio talker for WIBA-FM (101.5), went off on Adams and her group for blocking John Nolen Drive in Madison for eight hours on Monday.
"M. Adams, who wears an 'I hate pigs' tee-shirt, is calling for total elimination of our police force," Sylvester wrote on Facebook. "She also said your windows will be safe when we get our way. I am a fighter for all workers, that includes police officers."
But officials with Evers and Kaul defended the contracts and grants awarded to Freedom Inc.

You want "real numbers of blacks killed by white cops?" Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute is your gal: https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-myth-of-systemic-police-racism-11591119883

Why do the hard work of producing things? It's so much easier to write about how you hate other Americans so your allies in government will give you other people's money.

walter said...

So Adams doubles her salary, but wants Police defunded.
Justice.
Pigs indeed.

**************************

Just last night on Tucker's show Larry elder, a black commentator, cited CDC data showing "number of **unarmed** persons **killed** in 2019 by police, race of cop unnamed, as follows

Whites: 19
Black 9

That's a real wave of police terror and racism, isn't it?. Elder further says the CDC data claims that cop shooting of blacks has **fallen* by 75% over the past 45 years.

If you want data on police ** fatal shootings** out by race, irrespective of whether the perp was armed or shot first, see:

https://www.statista.com/chart/21857/people-killed-in-police-shootings-in-the-us/

Since 2015, the stats are as follows:

Race Deaths/million total % grand total

Blacks 30 1252 25.6
Hispanic 22 877 18.5
White 12 2385 50.4
Other 4 214 5.4

Then look at the total number of crimes in the US for 2018, sorted by race:

https://www.ojjdp.gov/ojstatbb/crime/ucr.asp?table_in=2

Offenses All races White Black AmerInd Asian
Murder and non-negligent manslaughter 11,970 5,280 6,380 140 160 140

If you go to the site you can that, in terms of their respective population ratios, US blacks surpass whites (70%) in almost all crime categories.

It's no wonder that Dem pols don't want us law-abiding folks to consider looting and arson as "crimes"---it just makes the stats look worse. Hence "catch and release" for NYC's looters and arsonists.
