Rally supporting police draws scores to downtown Kenosha

Under Trump's watch the US is getting as violent and UNsafe as it's ever been.

Trump and his Republicans continue to further divide the nation along class and ethnic lines. Instead of trying to calm things down, they throw more fuel on long burning fires.

It’s amazing how you know Blake was reaching for a knife when not even the investigators know this.

You dont even know enough about the case to know that there were not three grown men involved

Tell me again how I don’t know enough about the case to know that there were three grown men involved:

*Blake was shot after three Kenosha officers responded to a domestic dispute call.*

Some police say he had a knife on him; some say they later found it in his car. Which is it? Something is obviously fishy with their stories. Of course the public is not going to believe and trust in the police when they act this way.

Disinterested third-party eyewitnesses say they didn’t see Blake holding a knife. But, we should probably believe the police because they don’t have a vested interest in this. (Sarcasm.)

Blake had just brawled with the police, shrugged off being taserd twice, ignored three police with guns drawn ordering him to stop, then reached into his car to get something. The police didnt know what he was reaching for, whether it was a knife a gun or a hand grenade for that matter. It doesnt matter what it turns out to be - Blake brought this shooting on himself.

Oh no you dont - this is all on the Dems and their marxist allies BLM and Antifa. Its the Dems who are stirring this up and fanning the flames. This is a neo Marxist insurgency - yes, such is what passes for the Democratic party today.

Trump, and a whole lot of Americans, wont allow it to succeed.

That may very well be the cases, but it doesn’t change the fact that there is no way for a poster on JT to know what Blake whether Blake was reaching for anything.

Why couldn’t three allegedly trained, adult male police officers not detain a single, unarmed individual?

Obviously he was reaching for something. Nobody knew what it was and thats the point. In the circumstances it was perfectly correct to assume he was reaching for a weapon. Whether it was a weapon or not matters not one bit. The police ( and any sane person) would justifiably assume, UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES that Blake himself had created, that the probability was extremely high that he was reaching for a deadly weapon.

@ToadtedHeretic, Fascism will be removed.

I agree. Im confident Trump will take down Antifa.

-3 ( +7 / -10 )

Firstly, shooting the man seven times in the back is excessive and unjustifiable.

However, it could be argued that Blake was committing the felony of fleeing/ resisting arrest. Police are justified in using deadly force to stop a felony in progress but only if their lives, or the lives of members of the public are under direct threat. On the other hand, one is allowed to resist arrest if the arresting officer is acting unlawfully. It’s hard to say without knowing the details of the first interactions between Blake and the officers.

The police union says Blake was holding a knife, and independant(?) investigators from Wisconsin’s Department of Justice seem to be saying the knife was in the car. Given the blue wall of silence (cops protecting their own) is an established and documented reality, I’d be disinclined to believe the union’s version.

Wrong! The catalyst of the violence spinning out of control are these disgraceful Democrat leaders that continue to not speak out on the violence and allow these thugs to destroy these cities.

Trump and his Republicans continue to further divide the nation along class and ethnic lines.

That’s not true, if it were minority communities under the Democrat leadership would be equal, but the wide disparity is due to the fact that Dems don’t care about inequality, they just care about their votes and nothing else.

Instead of trying to calm things down, they throw more fuel on long burning fires.

Democrat governors and mayors could enforce the laws of authority and yet they don’t and won’t.

Can guarantee if Biden tried to come visit the Dem leaders would welcome him with open arms. Well now they cant cause they whining about Trump coming.

If you dont want video/pics of President Trump standing in your violence destroyed city and getting re-elected by it, maybe dont let Antifa/BLM destroy your city?

Floyd, another Black man, was handcuffed and died after a Minneapolis officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck.

Floyd died after resisting arrest. Floyd died after being caught passing counterfeit money.

No, it’s not obvious.

Youre correct, these three officers weren’t grown men. Police are in the habit of employing minors. Smooth “logic.”

I have to admit that until about 3 weeks ago, I was under the impression that George Floyd died as the officer had his knee on him until he died. That wasnt the case, he passed away hours later.

Also didnt know that George Floyd has fentanyl in his mouth and overdosed on it after swallowing it to hide it from the police.

I am sure that this new case will have additional facts that will come out, that is why Obama told the NBA to go back to playing basketball. wrong martyr.

Here we go with making excuses for the president and pushing the inaccuracy they Dems haven’t spoken out against the violence and are allowing it to continue.

That’s not true, if it were minority communities under the Democrat leadership would be equal, but the wide disparity is due to the fact that Dems don’t care about inequality, they just care about their votes and nothing else.

Yeah! That’s why Dems consistently support programs to ensure equality and republicans scream how those programs are reverse racism.

Democrat governors and mayors could enforce the laws of authority and yet they don’t and won’t.

Is that why they send out the police to confront the violence?

Blake has a knife in his "possession", that has already been confirmed. A knife was found inside the car, exactly where he entered it.

So it was either in his hand already or he was reaching for it.

Here is a hint about the case that might help in the "3 grown men" misstatement.

You’re playing a semantics game. It was very clear from my original post that I was referring to three adult male police officers not being able to detain one adult male. So it seems as if you are willfully not getting it.

The police union says Blake was holding a knife, and independant(?) investigators from Wisconsin’s Department of Justice seem to be saying the knife was in the car. 

In self-defense, police officers, and civilians, can repeatedly fire at, or repeatedly strike/hit someone who they consider to be a deadly, and immediate, threat, until that threat is neutralized.

The consensus seems to be that there was a knife in the car. Are you questioning how the knife ended up in the car. Was it Blake's car, or was he stealing it from the woman who had called the police?

-2 ( +6 / -8 )

Black: Appreciate you correcting me that it wasn’t three grown men. Odd that you wouldn’t have simply said, “One was a woman.”

It's all on the police and right-wing extremists that are working hand-in-hand together. Why only mention Antifa and not white supremacist groups, even though it is the right-wing extremists that are doing the killing at rallies? Time and time again, it's been proven that police target only at stopping Antifa, and give groups like "boogaloo" a pass.

you would just say no it wasnt, just like you claimed for days there was no knife. So I had to force you to read and figure it out for yourself.

Black: Appreciate you correcting me that it wasn’t three grown men. Odd that you wouldn’t have simply said, “One was a woman.”

Now do the knife, same article.

The DOJ said in its press release that Blake "admitted that he had a knife in his possession" and that investigators recovered a knife from the driver's side floorboard of his car. No other weapons were found in the vehicle, the agency said. It is not clear whether Blake was carrying the knife at the time he was shot.

Part of it will end, but remember that Trump is a symptom of the disease. It will take a lot more hard work to cure hatred, bigotry and ignorance.

The fight will continue online, on the streets and wherever racism and apologists for racism raise their ugly heads.

3 ( +11 / -8 )

many of the methods that were previously used to do just that are now no longer allowed.

Knee in the neck/back was effective, but killed people who resisted. Chokeholds were effective, but killed people who resisted. Before it used to be the fault of the person resisting if they got injured resisting, but now seems resisting is allowed and even encouraged.

So now you have people getting up off the ground after being held down, continuing to fight after being tased multiple times (drunk or high so it doesnt work), so they end up getting shot. Same as happened in Atlanta.

You seem to be claiming that since it was a woman, we should excuse three allegedly trained adult police officers not being able to detain a single adult male

Having a knife in one's car is not a crime. Nor is carrying one, actually. And if he was stealing the car - again, the union says he was, the DOJ says he wasn't - then it probably wasn't his knife, and he wouldn't have even known it was there.

someone who they consider to be a deadly, and immediate, threat,

No, you guys are making excuses for the Democrat leadership in these rouge States for allowing these thugs to riot.

Yeah! That’s why Dems consistently support programs to ensure equality and republicans scream how those programs are reverse racism.

So why are black communities still poor and impoverished after 60 years of Dem leadership? So much for equality, right?

Is that why they send out the police to confront the violence?

If you break the law, I would hope so, but since Dems want to defund the police expect the madness to worsen.

Yes, me too. Then I watched the full bodycam video (abt 40 minutes ) and was stunned.

The cops were very professional and actually gentle with Floyd. The knee on the neck was without any pressure and didnt interfere with his breathing. Floyd was already complaining of not being able to breathe several minutes earlier just sitting in the police car. Floyd killed himself by swallowing his drug stadh. Obama knows all this now too.

I'm not the biggest Trump fan, but I think the Democrats are in for one hell of a shock come November. I don't see how Trump can lose anymore.. The insane riots, looting and violence being seen in the US now is turning so many people against BLM and the Democrats in general. Trump will turn this election into one over law and order and the Democrats just can't win an election like that.

Look at recent polling indicating Trump possibly even leading battleground states, and massive loss of support for BLM among Democrats. Social media and comments sections everywhere are overwhelming pro Trump but more importantly anti-Democrat (meaning even those who dislike Trump are still willing to vote for him to go against the Democrats). Regardless, Trump voters are way more fired up than Democrats, meaning a likely big win for him considering the silent Trump voters will come out in swarms in November.

I hate to say it, but I think this election may already be over in Trump's favor because of these riots. If I were a Democrat in America right now, I'd be seriously worried and would make efforts to increase turnout among voters and to immediately support the put down of the riots.

The longer the Democrats associate themselves with BLM and Antifa, the more voters they are going to lose. Already the NY Police Union has endorsed Trump, and if they are doing that in NY then you can bet nationwide the Police population, and those that have friends in the Police and support the Police, probably are backing Trump already. Anyone who is against mindless mob violence, looting and destruction of private property, and who are small business owners probably have law and order on their minds this election, meaning an instant loss for the Democrats.

The DOJ hasn't publicly, or fully, addressed that issue yet. Telling the police that you have a knife, while they are trying to arrest you, could sound like a threat. Waiting for a drunken suspect to stab you while you are trying to detain them doesn't sound like a good idea, either.

The dream never manages equal reality.

That comment cuts two ways. Read the Communist Manifesto and actually understand what Marx and Engels advocated. A lot of things are labeled "marxist" that are not even remotely related to anything Marx and Engels wrote. It's very short, they really didn't have much to underpin their ideas and we all know they were complete failures. But if you do bother to read it, and you are even a little bit honest with yourself you will realize that there are no real marxists in any political party in the US. Marx was extreme, advocating not just socialism, but on top of that no private property at all, the end of the family, communal child rearing and free love, meaning bedding down with whomever and whatever children materialized were raised communally. Then add no religion and a "dictatorship of the proletariate, whatever that means (ended up being an old fashioned police state). That is marxism.

Calls for social justice and an end to racism have no relationship to marxism. Those considerably pre-date Marx and go back to the founding of the US. The US has never lived up to the high words of its Declaration of Independence. That is what the calls for an end to racism and social justice are. They are a call for the US to live up to its stated ideals as expressed in what was at the time one of the most radical political statements ever made. But the nation has not yet lived up to that document and citizens of the US will continue to agitate for change as long as the nation falls short .

Biden (and Harris) released generic statements about the violence.

What was missing was calling out their BLM and Antifa supporters by name and ordering them to stop rioting and looting.

Both statements were extremely generic, like "someone" is doing "something bad" and it needs to stop. That isnt enough to put the Democrat released and supported monster back in the bottle.

-7 ( +6 / -13 )

Remember, a number of BLM "leaders" have come out publicly to say they support looting and violence. Ariel Atkins said it was "reparations":

"If some decides to loot a Gucci, or a Macy's, or a Nike, because that makes sure that person eats, that makes sure that person has clothes ... That's reparations. That is reparations. Anything they wanna take, take it, because these businesses have insurance. They're gonna get their money back. My people aren't getting anything."

And one of the speakers at the Kenosha rally said:

"if you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours"

This sort of logic is what will drive moderate voters away from the Democrats. If nothing else changes before November I think this election is already over in Trump's favor.

This is the thinking of your true Marxist right there in all it’s gray glory.

Telling the police that you have a knife, while they are trying to arrest you, could sound like a threat.

I agree. But still, we don't know exactly what happened at first contact. Although you don't have to, you may tell the officers that you are carrying a knife if they ask, or even if they don't, in the interests of a smooth interaction. It's often advised that you tell an officer that you are carrying a firearm during a traffic stop, for example. "I have a gun on my right hip, officer. How should we proceed?"

Waiting for a drunken suspect to stab you while you are trying to detain them doesn't sound like a good idea, either.

It doesn't. But confirming that there is indeed a threat to your person (by not following the retreating suspect and making a grab for his clothing) before pumping seven bullets in someone's back seems prudent. If he'd said 'there's a gun in my car' then the argument would be stronger. The advantage of a gun over a knife is that the knife wielder can be kept at a distance.

Desert Tortoise - Read the Communist Manifesto and actually understand what Marx and Engels advocated. 

Marx was extreme, advocating not just socialism, but on top of that no private property at all, the end of the family, communal child rearing and free love, meaning bedding down with whomever and whatever children materialized were raised communally. 

Wanna-be Marxism, and firearm registration/confiscation, are just more reasons why the Harris-Biden ticket has already lost the election.

I believe, regardless of what the CNN-types would like their viewers to think, that most eligible voters in the U.S. support their local police officers. Most eligible voters in the U.S. do not want to be bullied by wanna-be Marxist, or socialists, or thugs who constantly try to justify the looting, arson, theft, physical violence, and moronic stupidity of the peaceful rioting.

Sounds rad.

They will end up turning on each other. Just wait and see. This mindless fury and ignorance can't sustain itself forever.

What? Huh?

And apologists for modern day plantation brutalising of black people are going to continue making excuses for it.

Like the liberals that control black communities and refuse to take responsibility for the decimation of these communities.

Besides, capitalism enslaves all of us but the rich.

Socialism will lead us into poverty, check out San Francisco.

No wonder they're terrified of the uprising

Socialism should make people terrified.

Antifa is a white supremacist group. Take a gander at the booking photos of arrested antifa rioters,

Ah, so in other words, what you're saying is that a white supremacist group developed Anitifa to try and discredit the liberal supporters. They use Antifa to create violence and crime to make it look as if the violence in the protests are being done by the left. That would further support the fact that local law enforcement is allowing gun-toting right wingers like "boogaloo" to hunt down protesters (and even some federal agents, as what happened in the George Floyd protests in Oakland), or mow them down with cars.

Expect worse. The far right, the internet research agency and fanatics are prepared to sacrifice the very fabric of reality in order to get their agenda across.

"Yeah, ain't it cool?"
