LiveLeak just posted a video of young girls having a free-for-all on the Clearwater, FL beach that supposedly happened on June 9th. It looks remarkably like the McKinney incident except in McKinney the melee happened on private property. Property, I might add, that residents paid to maintain.
For some reason I never can get LiveLeak videos to embed, so you'll have to click on the link above. If anyone knows why they won't embed, please let me know.
A very dangerous precedent is being set with these out of control young people, most of whom are black. The McKinney police officer has resigned after being thrown under the bus by his chief.
In the Clearwater incident, the police involved are subduing the participants in the same manner that Officer Casebolt did in McKinney. What struck me was that as one of the officers was restraining one girl, other girls continued to pummel her as though the officer was doing them a favor by holding her down.
I can't ever recall seeing so much violence in young girls and witnessing the complete lack of intimidation they experience from an authority figure. The message being sent is, "I'm black, and you can't do anything to me." And, guess what? They're right.
I can't figure out the end game of the people who are fomenting all this racism and division. My motto has always been "follow the money." Or, put another way, "cui bono" (to whose benefit)? I see no monetary gain for anyone because of this chaos. As to who's benefiting, we have the usual suspects like Al Sharpton. But Al Sharpton can't orchestrate this by himself. And I've never bought into the martial law theory. Trying to impose martial law in a country this size would be near impossible. But - I could be wrong.
If any readers have an idea about the reasons behind this, feel free to weigh in.
If this continues at the current pace, this summer is going to be rife with riots and more dead cops.
Mark Levin's commentary, in my opinion is spot on. Listen below. ↓
Also, this insightful article by Ol' Remus, the recently retired proprietor of the Woodpile Report, has delivered a whole heap of honesty. Somehow Fran Porretto enticed him into doing a guest post. Good job, Fran.
Frankly My Dear: A Guest Post From Ol' Remus
[The following is a Guest Post from Ol' Remus of the late and greatly missed Woodpile Report. I keep inviting Remus to become a regular Co-Conspirator here, and he keeps declining. I shall persist! -- FWP]
With all the recent troubles we're again being invited to an honest and open conversation about race, or said differently, the browbeatings will be resumed. Try this for honest and open: many of us, probably most of us, are tired of your whining, your so-called grievances, your violence and crime, your insults and threats, your witless blather and pornographic demeanor—all of it. You're not quite 13% of the population yet everything has to be about you, all day, every day. With you, facts aren't facts, everything's a kozmik krisis, and abusive confrontations are your go-to.Read the rest - it's outstanding
Here's the thing: some of us despise you, although fewer than you believe, but most of us plain don't care about you or your doings. There was a time when we did care, but you betrayed our good will and played us for fools. We laugh about it now, but we actually believed you wanted equal opportunity and mutual respect and to live in harmony—all that stuff. Ain't it a hoot? Imagine our embarrassment.
We talk among ourselves just like you do. It's true, we have "frank and open discussions" when you're not around. Why? Partly because it's exhausting to tippy-toe around you. Partly because you think it's your celestial right to tell us what we can say. And partly because you're alarmingly aggressive or painfully dim-witted by turns. We never know which "you" will pop out of the box, or when. But mainly because you've revealed yourself as grasping opportunists without honor or principle. There's your deal-breaker. There's more.
During the recent riots you expected us to believe heisting snack food then torching the place was "standing up for justice". When we didn't buy it, you told us the looting and arson wasn't done by the rioters after all, no, all the bad stuff was done by rioters from out of town. Apparently you think it makes a difference to us. And if we don't fall for that one, you tell us you're the real victims, you're the ones "hit hardest" because the neighborhoods you looted and burned are, um, looted and burned.
