SF media/libs "out to get" dissident cop? (follow-up to "racist" video claim)
Little Green Footballs ^ | 12-9-05 | Zombie, LGF, self

{This is a follow-up to a string posted yesterday about Officer Andrew Cohen, the San Francisco policeman who has been suspended for making allegedly racist videos. There is more to this story than meets the eye, to say the least.)

In other San Francisco news:

For those not in the area, the San Franciso media is in a frenzy over a concocted scandal about a series of satirical videos made by a SF policeman as part of a morale-boosting program. The videos are described as being "racist," "offensive to women," "insensitive" and so on, but it's all a bunch of LLLies. The media will not tell you that the videos are actually NOT any of those things, are quite funny, and instead are self-deprecating about the cops. Example: a self-absorbed cop is driving along talking about having to relate to the community, and in his narcissism he runs over a homeless woman and doesn't even notice, and just drives away talking about connecting with the people. See? Self-deprecating. But this is described as "racist." Why? Because the "homeless woman" is black. Anyway, there are many such similar examples disproving the claims against the videos. But that is brushed aside and the MSM reports as unquestioned fact that the videos are racist, sexist etc.

Mayor Gavin Newsom and Police Chief Heather Fong held a press conference about the video yesterday in which they acted like they were announcing the end of the world. 20 cops were suspended over this non-event.

What's the catch?

The officer who made the video was named Andrew Cohen. Earlier tonight Shiplord Kirel noticed that officer Cohen had already been featured on LGF as the subject of a bizarre "cop-naming incident" by AP, which many suspected was a crypto-anti-semitic jab. For some reason, this Jewish former-liberal-from-Berkeley cop is highly unpopular with the leftist elites of San Francisco. It's like they have a vendetta against him.

Why?

Well, this is what I dug up: In 1998 he recorded a rap CD that attacked the liberal DA's office for not prosecuting the criminals the cops brought in, and also attacked the OCC, an anti-police citizens' complaint commission that became a mouthpiece for the extreme left. I think this CD put him permanently on the radar of the vengeful far left of SF.

Here's a profile of him from about 7 years ago:

Two of his songs have become anthems among the rank and file, including cops who normally can't stomach rap music.

On "O.C.C.," Powder makes some clever digs at the Office of Citizen Complaints, The City's independent police watchdog agency loathed by most cops. Using the melody of Naughty By Nature's 1991 hit "O.P.P.," Cohen changes the refrain to "O.C.C." and gives a long diatribe about the agency, comparing it to "an autocrat."

On "DA Don't Prosecute," he pokes fun at prosecutors, crooning:

"Do the crime it seems to pay / you might have to do about a day / then push the revolving door to get free / go on another crime spree."

The song closes with the lines: "The streets are gettin' crazier day by day / people are comin from all around / to commit their heinous activities / the word is out - crime's legal in our town."

Prosecutors don't enjoy being the butt of his humor

In other words, Cohen is an honest liberal (rare, but still in existence) and pointed out the flaws in the far left group who have taken over SF. They blacklisted him and finally made their final attack this week. Of course, the local MSM portray this like another Fajita-gate and make Fong and Newsome out to be the good guys,. Typical.

And of course, no arrests whatsoever for all of the breaking of indecent exposure laws. So kids get to see things that they should not, both from the standpoint of nudity and the standpoint of wretched ugliness! BAARRRRFFF!

I just bet you're glad you're in Georgia, backhoe. I don't think I need to comment on the picture. They say it all.
