Seattle Police Chief Tells People To Call 911 If They Hear 'Racist Name-Calling'
Reason ^ | 31 Mar 2020 | Robby Soave

Seattle's top cop may want to get her priorities straightened out. In the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Police Chief Carmen Best used her most recent "chief's brief" update on the coronavirus crisis to urge residents to dial 911 if they are the victims of racist name-calling.

It's a time-wasting imperative—and one that's at odds with the First Amendment.

In her briefing, Best called upon the expertise of a former local news anchor, Lori Matsukawa.

"Hate crimes have no place in our community," said Matsukawa. "We are all trying to deal with the COVID-19 public health crisis together. If you are a victim of a hate crime or hate-based harassment, please call 911."

"We will document and investigate every reported hate crime," Best continued. "Even racist name-calling should be reported to police. If you aren't sure if a hate crime occurred, call 911. We are here to help."

So when one black guy calls another black guy by the N word in brotherly luv, we call this genius?

PS, isn’t Seattle stolen land? Doesn’t it belong to chief Seattle and the Suquamish tribe?

I mean, it was the Protestant White Guy Denny who started the town. Doesn’t that make it all illegitimate? By what right does “Carmen” rule over the Land of the Natives? She’s from Africa, right? But she’s not above Political Appropriation by using an a White land grab to give herself police power? How can that be?

C’mon, Carmen, tell us when you’re going to step down and move home to Gabon.

That movie had a bigger message than was on the surface. Loved it.

One was that the singer Michael Bolton really sucks.

>> If you aren’t sure if a hate crime occurred, call 911.

abuse of emergency responders for non-life threatening squabbles.

If you aren’t sure if a hate crime occurred, then did it even matter (tree falling in forest).
