Police blamed for black crime spree
World Net Daily ^ | 05/19/13 | Colin Flaherty

Posted on 05/21/2013 4:38:12 AM PDT by Anila

Kansas City councilman Jermaine Reed wanted to have an “honest” discussion on race. But like Attorney General Eric Holder and former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, who made similar pleas before him, he did not really say more than that.

Green’s call for honest talk came after three years and dozens of episodes of black mob violence at the Plaza in Kansas City.

He wanted an explanation as to why police only cited black people.

I could not tell if he was unhappy with the black people for frequent and large-scale episodes of mob violence – or with the police for catching them.

So I asked him. Despite Reed’s plea for more conversation, he said he did not wish to talk about it. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/police-blamed-for-black-crime-spree/#X6xK3VJzAyv5vdex.99

I have been reading several news regarding crimes, fights, mob violence, hate crimes.. etc. I was curious about the suspect being black or white but it was not mentioned in the report. I am not sure if they just don't want to be called racist. Which in fact, those suspect are the real racist.

...another genius explains mob violence by blaming others...ignore the numbers,ignore the people involved,ignore reality. But lie like *ell to get re-elected.
Typical race bating moron who can be held responsible for not addressing the obvious...point that racist finger at others.

you cannot have an ‘honest’ debate on race as long as white people are muzzled by political correctness.

My daughter was at the Plaza one Friday night to see a movie with her little friends and I got a call to get down there asap because there was a curfew. When I arrived 10 mins later a female police lady was standing with my daughter and her friend as if guarding her from predators. I had no clue there was even a problem, the KC press has kept it so quiet. The Plaza is where all the hoi poloi shop, with a Burberry, lulu lemon, a Tiffany’s.........if the rioters want to wreck it, Kansas City will be officially DOA. The schools are already non accredited. It is another Detroit in the making. Maybe I should move.

Move in a heartbeat.

I watched what the Dem/Black/Hisp machine did to my hometown. Lovely working class and middle class neighborhoods abandoned, people just walking away from their properties. Not Detroit, the Northeast.

One of the biggest covered up stories of this country is how this Troikia has decimated many many cities accross the country. Detroit is amazing because it is so big, but the same thing is happening in many other cities. Empty buildings, rampant crime, and all out criminal attacks on innocent citizens. When I first heard the term Feral Youth, I thought it was a joke. It is no joke.

A good rule of thumb is that if they don’t say the crime was done by a white it was a minority. There was a local story here where a black guy killed his g/f; TV stations all told us about the manhunt and the crime - but did not mention his race. How are we supposed to recognize him and let the police know if we don’t have that little bit of info?

They need to stop framing it as a discussion of race, but never will.

A more honest discussion would be about behavior.

Move! Our family relocated from Dayton after the 67-68 race riots in Dayton. Yes, that is what they were called. Dayton, Ohio had a tax base of 1,250 million but today it is under 340,000; I read here at Free Republic recently that over 7,000 buildings are abandoned in Dayton. The city went on to elect a Black Mayor who cussed on Local TV and was a high school drop out. There are more than one level within black culture, but at the street level it is mob rule; at more middle class levels it is so intertwined with the violent levels as to make discussion of crime simply racism. Move. Move. Move.

All these gun control asshats should look up the stats and see who is actually committing the majority of crime and specifically gun related crime. They should “get honest” and talk about the race and demographics of said people if it interests them so much. They want to get to the “root issue” of inner city crime? They should start with the family and work their way up to the federal nanny state.

Come to South Carolina. Race relations are good, as near as I can tell. Conservative majority despite Flimsey Graham. Local muzzies keep to themselves. Chick Fil-A’s are packed with family groups. Churches abound, both black & white.

Oh - did I mention that citizens in the Palmetto State are armed to the teeth?

IDK. Here in the Northeast, NH seems to be marginally more conservative than other states here. If I had the option to move I would move to Western Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah. Texas is too hot and humid for me, and when things get tough there will be no power.

There are many conservative regions in all states, look for the red lots of red.

We live in St. Charles, MO and about 3 years ago my wife and I drove over to the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City and found it to be a beautiful place with lots of shops, fountains and fine restaurants. I have been going to the Plaza since I was a child since my grandfather lived there. I remember the big 4 story Sears and Roebuck store they had there which is now long gone.
Anyway, we spent a lot of money at the shops and then ate in a fine restaurant. Had a good time. The only problem was that the streets are filled with pan handlers begging for money. I gave one disabled veteran $5 and suddenly I was surrounded by others wanting money. We got out of there and left. We then went to Crown Center and had a good time there also but when we got back to our car the license plate were gone and when I looked around most of the plates on the cars around me were also gone. I won’t be going back to Kansas City.

There are two major “victim” groups in the USA. They can DO anything they want to do, but normal people are not allowed to SAY anything about it.

Not only a double standard, but forgiveness of real crimes and punishment of normal people for their thoughts.

In general, go someplace cold.... :)

There are a lot of sites where you can get demographic information by city, county, zipcode, etc.

The demographic statistics closely correlates with the violent crime statistics.

And, watching what Odumbo has done/is doing to the rest of the country, it will all look like an inter-city slum before long.

It’s culture - not skin color or genetics.

We need to have an honest discussion on culture.
“Urban” culture is inferior, violent, and needs to be discouraged instead of encouraged.

I want to give you a short excerpt from a book that was written in 1968. It kind of makes you wonder and say, Huh? But I think this author had an idea of what was happening and wrote a Science Fiction story around it.

“THE NORMS had long since moved from the cities, so had the police. Those who remained were jubilant to a degree— it was a pity to lose the police. Cop-killing had been, if not materially rewarding, a considerable boost to prestige.

Now they must find other ways of impressing their fellows. The police themselves, once clear of the cities, formed— according to city opinion— an unholy alliance with the Armed Services. Between them, they built enormous forts, reminiscent of the ancient prison camps, which they surrounded with lights, weapons and lethal invisible barriers.

Wiseacres asked if the forts had been built to keep the bad elements out or the police in. Periodically, however, the police made savage punitive raids on the cities— this was when the cities began to get ideas about the Norms. The Norms, generally speaking, built their rural communities near the forts for safety reasons.

Centuries ago, of course, there would have been no room for rural communities but a great many people had died in the early days of the Troubles and left room for expansion. Again, only the hubs of the great cities remained. The once sprawling suburbs had, long ago, been pounded to dust in countless clashes of arms.

Besides rearranging the social structure of the race, the Troubles had also brought about sharp caste divisions which had nothing to do with wealth, heritage, colour, creed, or any previously known cultural factor. All these castes were known by commonplace and often slightly vulgar terms of reference.”

High, Philip E. (1968). Invader on My Back (pp. 4-5). Orion. Kindle Edition.

“Honest discussion about race”= white people become slaves, and take their oppression just like we saw in the movies about slavery.
Seriously, as said, it’s not a race issue but a behavior issue.

When I was younger, we would sometimes go to KC for school, FFA, etc.

We were all told to get out of the Plaza by nightfall, and to stay out of it period in warm weather.

It seems to me that the best way to confront this head on is to do exactly the opposite of what the media does, but strictly online, and from out of state.

That is, create a website that is called, and uniquely describes, “Black Crime In Kansas City”. It archives and displays stories just about crimes committed by black people in KC, as described by witnesses and with mugshots if possible.

Maybe even make fun of the authorities and media that tap dance to avoid describing the criminals, their race, or their blatant racism, when it happens.

To further confuse things, the website should be supposedly sponsored by an imaginary organization, such as “Honest Black Citizens of Kansas Against Black Criminals”.

The main problem with KC is that the largely Democrat voters, including the wealthy population living along Ward Parkway, elect liberals and blacks then wonder why their wonderful neighborhoods and shopping areas are turned over to roving gangs of black mobs.

I was right. A lot of the impetus behind gun control is to disarm the prey, so wilders don’t have to worry.

Think it’s bad now? Wait until they disarm us.

Comment #2 was yours? I didn’t pull the trigger on ya...

I agree w/ you on that as one of two reasons behind “gun control”; but one minor reason.

The other reason?

They can do whatever they want to an unarmed, helpless population. History bears that out w/ communism and socialism.

They won’t disarm US, but maybe it’ll happen within the next 1-2 generations, which have now been fully-indoctrinated in the socialist-union-run public schools.

They want to marginalize and minimize Whites, Christians, Jews, Conservatives etc. They’d rather rather eradicate us, though.
