Obama’s False Racism Claims Are Putting Cops’ Lives In Danger

Hours before the murders of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, President Obama was again spouting false claims about racism by the police. He sees racism whenever there is any disparity in outcomes, no matter what the cause.

Obama and others inflame passions, but take no responsibility, and instead use events to push for more gun control. Yet, shouting racism can endanger the lives of police officers. The Dallas police chief tells us one of the shooters “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”

After the Trayvon Martin case, there were numerous cases around the country of blacks attacking whites and invoking Martin’s name.

Let’s not forget that NYPD cops Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were executed by a black man who was angry about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

Obama and his administration spoke out repeatedly on the Martin and Brown cases. They repeatedly claimed racism was involved, but in fact there’s no evidence of that in either case.

    This article is crap. Study after study has proven that racial biases exist not only in our criminal justice system but policing as well. Simply acknowledging this truth doesn’t put any officer at risk, but rather the poor policing associated with race based policing conducted under the guise of policing strategies such as stop and frisk and broken windows. I can name Jair a few departments off the top of my head that are guilty of such practices, NYPD, Chicago, San Franciso, Miami, Ferguson. You can’t deny these departments didn’t police racially and at best had racist officers regularly referring to citizens as ‘N**ers, monkeys and other nice words for African Americans. This is once again LE trying to defect their on deficiencies on to others. You don’t realize how broken policing is in this country. The public has now been exposed to the truths that LE had effectively hidden now that video exists and the public will force policing to change.

      Policing is more professional than ever. However, there are approximately 18,000 police agencies in this country with different standards, practices and policies. We can’t paint all police with one brush stroke, just as we can’t paint all of any profession. Applicants come from all walks of society, and you will have a racist element, as you will in any segment of society. However, we have a system of checks and balances, and all work to better these issues. But consider this: https://www.facebook.com/fox6news/videos/10153829806806523/?pnref=story

        You mentioned part of the problem with policing in the US. 18K police agencies operating with too much autonomy, with potentially 18K of different policies, standards, and leadership. Furthermore many of these departments could operate very much as the police force in Ferguson, acting as revenue agents rather than acting in support of public safety. Again, I believe we should pull a page for our UK brothers and consolidate some of these departments and standardize training, policy,mprocedures and have a consistent application of each.

          I’ve always thought that local policing is the best community policing, and most accountable to their local chief, because they really tend to know the community. But funding and often a lack of training also seem to go with that. In the rural areas I’ve worked, the locals seem to trust officers that were local guys more than out of area guys (whether from the sheriff’s or state police). But I completely understand what you are saying. I’m not sure what the answer is, more professional county police forces? Large full service State Police agencies like PSP?

            I think we have some areas of commonality. I’m most concerned about the standards variances in training. policy and its application. Some sort of structure that you proposed or a regional approach might improve the situation. I don’t see a reason why a sheriffs departments operation should vary from one county to another within a state. The same goes for police departments from city to city.

            In my state, the Maryland Police and Corrections Training Commision (M.P.C.T.C.) does oversee all departments, and for anyone to be a police officer, has to meet their standards, having attended a certified police academy. However, individual departmental policy is not governed by them, as far as I understand it. I do know that we have several agencies that are CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc.) accredited agencies, including the Maryland State Police. Ideally, all police agencies would have to be CALEA certified, but I would think $ is the biggest problem there.

            I would actually be interested in following up with you. I’m a Marylander and I’ve had several discussion with my state representative about training, standards and policy across departments.

          • Mike Coxsbig (NK Blödmann)

            How would I assist you?

          • ahaz

            I would be interested in locating the resources you mentioned and any other resources clarify state policies that individual LE departments are supposed to follow. I can’t find any state or local policies regarding drone usage, Stingray usage, etc.

    The false narrative also encourages non-policing of the very places that need it most. Please check the murder rate this year in Baltimore.

    It is time a law suit was filed against every news media for spreading this hate and violence before the FACTS of these cases is even known. Oh, and had POTUS to that list as well. Every Officer that has been injured or killed in the line of duty as a result of the violence they have spread should be listed as the complaintants.

      I said the exact same thing about a month ago on my Facebook! I think we should sue all of them and get some money for the victims like us that are mortified and mentally distraught for life because I now live in constant fear because I feel that I must carry a gun to make sure I can protect my family at all times with all of the threats to “Kill White People” from all of these Black Party Organizations!
