BLM Said to Fry Police Like Bacon, Now They Are Begging for Cops to Come Back


Reported By Kimberly J Smith | January 2, 2018 at 1:14pm

The city of Baltimore is reaping the consequences of painting all police officers as villains, and it has no one to blame but itself. In 2017, the city set a new record for the most murders per capita in the city’s history.

The Baltimore Sun reported that there were 343 homicides last year, which is a rate of 55.8 killings per 100,000 people. Baltimore has not seen a number that high since 2015, which happened to be the year Freddie Gray died from injuries he suffered while in police custody.

If you’ll recall, the Freddie Gray and Michael Brown cases galvanized the Black Lives Matter movement across the country. Anti-police protesters gathered in droves and chanted, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” at riots, helping to gin up hatred toward police. Baltimore has not been the same since.

Of course they do. But they should be blaming Black Lives Matter for starting the anti-police movement, and liberal politicians for fueling it.

Baltimore pastor and activist Rev. Kinji Scott seems to understand how and why things went wrong. He told NPR that he blamed progressives, other activists, politicians, and liberal journalists for fueling the anti-police movement that lead to Baltimore’s problems. He also said that police distanced themselves from communities, and members of the community distanced themselves even further.

Indeed. Things may have taken a different turn if those in charge hadn’t coddled rioters and activist while simultaneously working against the police.

Police Commissioner Kevin Davis told The Washington Post that he expected violence to decrease after Gray’s death, but instead riots emboldened criminals.

Sadly, it should surprise no one that Baltimore’s murder rate has climbed to an all-time high. Criminals tend to take over when police are not around to stop them. Back Lives Matter and their racial justice agenda is a danger not only to police officers, but also to those who want to live in Baltimore without fearing for their life. As long as BLM touts their anti-police, social justice rhetoric, things may never change.

Watch: Off-Duty Cop Drops Thug in Costco, Stops America’s Next Mass Killing

We’ve said it before, and we’ll keep on saying it: A good guy with a gun is the best way to counter a bad guy with a gun.

Capt. Michael Howell of the Kansas City (Kansas) Police Department proved that yet again when he dropped a thug in a Costco who could have been America’s next mass shooter. The incident happened last month but the video was just released last week, according to the Kansas City Star. It shows how Howell managed to kill Ronald O. Hunt.

It happened on Nov. 26 in a Costco in Lenexa, Kansas. According to Howell, he was in the store when he heard Hunt say, “I’m an off-duty U.S. Marshal, I’m here to kill people.”

“I knew that there was a threat that had to be stopped,” Howell said during a Friday news conference.

As Hunt moved through the aisles in what was described as a methodical fashion, Howell tracked the potential killer and then surprised him with his weapon.

“’Police, drop the gun. Don’t move,’” Howell recalls commanding Hunt.

After Howell repeated his command, Hunt turned on the off-duty cop with his weapon.

“That is when I fired at him,” Howell said. “And he went down.”

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said that Howell “acted with extreme courage, and saved an unknown amount of innocent lives” and that he wouldn’t face charges over the shooting.

Howell said he just did what had to be done.

“My greatest fear was we had kids with their moms, with their grandmas, with their dads,” Howell said.

“It was little kids running and screaming. And seeing the fear in their faces and knowing whatever it took, I had to do whatever necessary to end this threat so they wouldn’t get hurt.”

Thankfully, as Hunt went through the store with a pistol and a shopping cart, most of the customers fled out the emergency exit.

Meanwhile, Howell should really never have been in the store that day. He had originally planned to go to the Kansas City Chiefs game, but decided to stay at home and get some rest, instead. He had gone to Costco to get an electric fireplace.

As for claims that he was a hero, Howell downplayed the idea.

“I’m just a cop doing my job,” Howell said.

Of course, you won’t hear much in the mainstream media about this off-duty cop doing his job, and how he managed to stop a potential mass murderer before the wannabe killer could injure a single person. That’s because the idea of a good guy with a gun trumping a bad guy with a gun is anathema to the media’s narrative. Nevertheless, we salute Capt. Michael Howell. His quick thinking and bravery saved lives. That makes him a hero — and one more Americans should know about.

LMAO! Look What Cops Just CUT For This NFL Team – This Is AWESOME!

Remember what they say about Karma? The NFL is getting a stern reminder.

Colin Kaepernick started protesting against the flag and the anthem because he just couldn’t stand the racist police. Before he ‘Took A Knee’, he sat on his rump on the bench.

He explained why in 2016:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Source: NFL

Did he just say that police officers are murdering people because of their race?

Yes, he is. But it’s important to remember that this is where the ‘Take A Knee’ started — with bias against police officers — before it became a catch-all for progressive ideology including the ‘Gender Pay Gap’.

The NFL is fine with the anti-cop actions of the players, but not so much on some other issues.

Check out Doug’s latest video enumerating the issues the NFL isn’t so keen on their players raising awareness for:

Although many have forgotten what this ‘Take A Knee’ nonsense started over, there’s one group that didn’t forget: Law Enforcement officers. And officers in Miami aren’t going to let the slander slide. 

Florida police officers are upset about the kneeling protest, and have decided that they can protest NFL games by not working them. They are reducing the number of officers scheduled for security at the games.

There were a third less officers available for the Dolphins game on Sunday.

BAM!

Check it out:

Rather than 400 officers, just 270 were expected to help maintain order as the New York Jets played the home team.

As of Friday, only 175 officers had volunteered to work the game, requiring some officers to be forced into working. Those who worked will be paid overtime.

“This whole movement started against police officers,” Rivera told CBS News. “And now it’s morphed into disrespecting the flag and the country.”
Source: Washington Examiner

This, I believe, is the correct response. 

If the players think that cops are racists getting away with murder because the system is rigged — withdraw the police that are there to serve and protect. See how that works out.

Offended cops say it all has to do with respect.

“This whole movement started against police officers,” [Dade Police Benevolent Association President John] Rivera said. “And now it’s morphed into disrespecting the flag and the country.”

Miami-Dade Police released a statement, saying, “Any shortfall in volunteer officers doesn’t necessarily mean that the game will result in less safety.”
Source: CBS Miami

Miami isn’t the only place seeing pushback.

Last month, Cleveland police refused to hold the American flag during pregame ceremonies because of the kneeling clowns.

Cleveland’s police union will not be holding the American flag for a pregame ceremony for the Brown’s first game Sept. 10, Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis said late Friday.

Union members had planned on participating in the flag ceremony for the first game on Sept. 10 until some Browns players kneeled during the National Anthem before a preseason game, Loomis said in an interview with cleveland.com.

The players not standing for the national anthem is offensive because of the sacrifices that people make that allows these guys to enjoy the success that they have, Loomis said. While they’re benefiting from protection of the flag they are kneeling in disrespect of it, he said.

And look at all those empty seats! Fans aren’t liking the protest any more than the police do.

Kaep Loves Protesting on Live TV, but Here’s the 1 Photo He Wants Kept Secret

When former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the anti-American trend of sitting or taking a knee while the national anthem was played, he insisted he was using his platform to raise awareness and start a broader dialogue regarding perceived racial inequalities in America and police brutality.

Other players who have joined the protest trend have echoed those sentiments, and while some of them may truly believe it and think they aren’t being disrespectful or un-American, the reality is that many Americans do indeed find their actions to be quite disrespectful and offensive.

And in Kaepernick’s case, just a wee bit hypocritical.

You see, while the bi-racial Kaepernick rails against the perceived oppression of minorities in America by a “white supremacist” system, he himself doesn’t appear to have been all that “oppressed” and held back from opportunity by “white people,” but was in fact raised and presented with a multitude of opportunity by white people, namely his adoptive white mother and father.

Thought Crime: Police Officer Under Investigation for Criticism of Black Lives Matter. Alt-Left activist triggered by police officer’s meme on Facebook, demands officer be condemned and fired

Since the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement — and largely because of it — America’s law enforcement officers have dealt with increased danger and resentment. They are accused of being racist and violent and face ever-rising hostility from the civilians they are supposed to protect.

And now it seems they can’t even protest this sad state of affairs without putting their jobs at risk. 

More Than 80 Arrested In 3rd Night Of Protests In St. Louis; 
 
A St. Louis police officer is under investigation for an anti-Black Lives Matter post on Facebook — made in the midst of violent, destructive rioting that took place under the Black Lives Matter banner. The investigation follows a complaint by Alt-leftist Lisa Clancy, who posted a photograph of herself participating in a Black Lives Matter rally on Facebook. In response, the unnamed police officer posted a meme describing Black Lives Matter as “the Klan with a tan” and “domestic terrorists.”

“Letting that behavior happen undermines the very trust and relationships that are very important right now, especially when our community is in such a crisis moment,” Clancy told local news station KMOV.

When the exchange occurred, St. Louis resembled a war zone. Violent, destructive riots in response to the acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley were a nightly occurrence. While Clancy was writing anti-law enforcement propaganda on Facebook, St. Louis police officers were dealing with a veritable insurgency.

But this is irrelevant to Clancy, who believes the officer deserves to lose his job for exercising the very same right to free speech that Clancy exercised both in protesting the police and then bragging about it on Facebook.

“He needs to be let go. I think they need to send a strong message that this kind of behavior is unacceptable,” Clancy told KMOV. Tellingly, the existence of an internal investigation is not enough for Clancy, who is demanding that the St. Louis police department prostrate itself at the altar of the Alt-Left and publicly condemn the officer for his thought crime.

I think that their failure to condemn it publicly suggests that there’s systemic racism in the institution,” she said.

Breaking: Female Cop Assassinated by Cop Hater in ‘Unprovoked Attack’


Video of Alexander Bonds, 34, walking out of a store in New York’s Fordham Heights neighborhood – at 12:30 AM on Wednesday – show him B-lining it to Officer Miosotis Familia’s mobile command unit and firing a single shot to her head.

Dressed in all black from head to toe, Bonds then made a run for it.

The officer’s partner called for backup.

“Shots fired!” you can ear the officer scream on an audio recording. “I need a f—ing bus! 10-85 10-85! My partner’s shot! My partner’s shot! My partner’s shot! Hurry up central!”

Two cops responding to the call caught up with Bonds and shot him dead after he pulled a revolver on them.

He was killed when the two cops fired back, with an innocent bystander wounded in the crossfire.

The suspect’s silver revolver was recovered at the scene. The unidentified victim was standing next to Bonds, but had no connection to the killer, sources said. It was unclear if he was shot by the suspect or police.screen-shot-2017-07-05-at-1-30-44-pm

NY Daily News

Familia, a 12 year veteran of the NYPD, was pronounced dead at the hospital a few hours later.

After seeing Officer Miosotis Familia sitting in her police cruiser, Bonds walked up to her without cause and fired a single shot into her face, killing her.

His actions are not against his character. Bonds has an extensive rap sheet, of which one offense is assaulting a cop with brass knuckles back in 2001. His social media is also flooded with anti-police comments.

According to Heavy: Bonds made several posts about police on his Facebook page in the past year.

In another post seemingly about police, in October, he wrote, “Its because they feel the above what they should which is the law but they are not the law SMFH.”

In September 2016, he posted a video titled “Mad as Hill,” in which he talked about police and his time in prison.

A transcript of the video:

“Police man. Those that been up north know man, that police is f*ggots,” he said. “Don’t think every brother, cousin, uncle you got that get killed in jail is because of a blood or crip or Latin King killing them. Nah, police be killing them and saying that an inmate killed them.”

Also in the video, Bonds says, “I’m not playing, Mr. officer. I don’t care about 100 police watching this. … I got broken ribs for a reason, son, we gonna shake. We gonna do something. We can’t be dying for free, getting raped for free, just for them to give you hush money. Is you stupid? I don’t want the money. I want justice. … I’m not hesitating. It ain’t happening. I wasn’t a bitch in jail and I’m not going to be a bitch in these streets.”

His activity on Facebook continues to show his disdain for cops.

A few days earlier, Bonds shared a video of a police officer calling out “criminal cops,” and wrote, “That ain’t nothing new.”

He also shared a video of a police officer in Merced, California, stopping a teen on a bicycle that was posted by Media Takeout with the title, “Tiny Offcer Tries To BRUTALIZE Teen . . . And FAILS!!”

He wrote, “She don’t even know u fuxk u mean,” as the caption.

In January, Bonds “liked” a Facebook page titled “Return Judy Clark to Our Community,” a group that supports the release of Judith Clark, a member of the Weather Underground convicted of felony murder in the 1981 Brink’s armored car robbery that left a security guard and two Nyack, New York, police officers dead. Governor Andrew Cuomo granted Clark clemency in December, moving her parole date up.

It also seems like he was a Hillary supporter.

In November, just before Election Day, he shared a conspiracy video from Occupy Democrats that claimed voting machines were changing Hillary Clinton votes to Trump.

“Watch out also go vote our voices matter believe that if I could I kno u would,” he wrote.

This cop shooting is very similar to the December 2014 assassination of two officers. Both officers were sitting in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street.

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were targeted by a gunman who had posted anti-police messages on his social media feeds in the days before the shooting, officials said.

The officer was shot less than two miles away from where Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo was murdered by an armed ex-con in November.

Students Stage Walkout After MN City Votes To Disband Local Police Department


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/teenage-students-right-way-police/

Hundreds of well-behaved middle and high school students staged a peaceful protest Tuesday by walking out of their classes in Forest Lake, Minnesota, in response to the city’s presumably leftist-led council having voted a day earlier to literally disband the local police force.

As reported by local station KARE, the students marched out of their respective schools at 1:15 p.m. and made their way to City Hall, where they then proudly chanted “FLPD!” before eventually advancing into the council chambers. The best part about the whole event was that there was not a smidgen of violence or debauchery of any kind. It was peaceful and organized, in stark contrast with the depraved protests and riots preferred by leftist anti-cop hooligans.

Watch the kids arriving at City Hall in the video below:

Police Chief Richard Peterson was touched, to say the least.

“This is absolutely amazing,” he told KARE. “The students are fantastic. The community is fantastic. We are absolutely humbled by the support we’ve been given, really appreciate it.”

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the council voted Monday evening to disband the local police force of 23 officers and outsource its policing to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office to save $385,000 per year.

Speaking Tuesday morning on Fox News, councilwoman Mara Bain, who reportedly voted against the measure, noted that the $385,000 amounted to just $36 a year per household, which she claimed was an amount her constituents were willing to bear.

“Our residents have said we will pay it,” she said. “We will pay more.”

Thankfully, the efforts of Forest Lake’s students seemingly worked, as the city council reportedly withdraw its deal with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office a day later.

“This has been only the result of this community banding together and showing its … undying support for the police department,” Bain told the Forest Lake Times after the decision was announced. “This is a great day for the Forest Lake community.”

It should also serve as a crucial reminder to liberal troublemakers and rioters of what a peaceful protest ought to actually look like.
