Saturday is going to be a bad day

Saturday, July 25th is a national day of solidarity against the "invasion" of Portland.

The Youth Liberation Front is organizing- "...youth abolitionists are calling for a national and global march against the institution of policing."

....."We are calling on all abolitionists, youth or non-youth, to coordinate mass protests on July 25th to show the world that the fire of this uprising is still burning strong, and that flames will just keep getting bigger until the police state has been dismantled once and for all."

College students and unemployed burnouts across America will be lighting police cars on fire and shining lasers into cops' eyes for justice. Just what America needs in these trying times!

[quote] until the police state has been dismantled once and for all.

Undoubtedly, policing practices have to change. However, the notion that some extremists want — i.e., getting rid of the police altogether — is not going to happen.

The DC City Council, which has its share of ultra-bleeding-hearts, was set to approve emergency legislation yesterday to reduce the police budget by $15,000,000. They delayed action because the optics were not good, coming 48 hours after a mass shooting in the city’s Columbia Heights neighborhood in broad daylight on Sunday.

Dismantling the police and redirecting the money to counselors and conflict resolution are only partial solutions. Without FIRST addressing many other systemic issues, such as poverty, lack of education, and unemployment, this becomes a recipe for disaster. The zeal for immediately and visibly “punishing” police departments by reducing their budgets without taking many other necessary steps is unfortunately typical of politicians who want to show that they are being responsive without doing the hard work. They lack the will to follow through and address the critical underlying causes for crime that will not disappear just because police budgets are slashed.

Reducing budgets and shifting resources should be part of a very broad, comprehensive plan, not stand-alone proposals to showboat how woke people are.

R3 And black people don't want the police either, you racist? Part of my family is black living in bad neighborhoods and they hate what's going on. They make fun of these racist white people who think that they have to shepherd the black people who don't know any better into the right direction. Black people who need policing are ignored or shouted down. My cousin's wife got into an argument with a WHITE woman who told her that she's marching for black people, and my cousin's wife said, "you're not marching for me. My hood NEEDS the police," and this white woman called my cousin's BLACK wife a racist! Imagine that?! A white woman calling a black woman a racist because she wants police presence in her bad neighborhood. The only people who don't want policing at this point are criminals and bougie black and white people who have never had to deal with the thug life and daily shootings. A big backlash is coming.

by Anonymousreply 1007/22/2020

It was idiotic to call it defunding the police. It created a total sideshow for opponents. Great shame.

From the recent WaPo/ABC poll: "On the issue of police funding, for example, 55 percent of Americans oppose moving funds from police departments to social services — and 43 percent say they oppose it “strongly.” Republicans are the most opposed, with 84 percent saying they’re against such a shift. Among independents, 53 percent are opposed, while 59 percent of Democrats support such shifts. On this issue, there is a sizable generation gap. Over half of Americans under age 40 support a funding shift, while less than a third of Americans 40 and older are in favor of moving funding from police to social services."

I'm surprised more people aren't on the streets considering how corrupt, cruel, and stupid trump & company are.

I'm just sorry the kids aren't more articulate in their grievances, more peaceful, less violent. After the initial violence stopped peaceful protest began. I'd like to see more of that.

BLM is very important, it's time to address the wrongs through police reforms but "defund police" is indeed an unfortunate tagline. We do need police. People murder, they steal, they assault, they cheat and on and on. Innocent people need protection. Not the trump goons, of course, but local people well trained in the communities they serve. Trained to be sensitive to racist, sexist, LGBT, and other biased response, to treat all people equally, and to of course arrest people who are harming others.

Where I live law enforcement is more progressive. I have a family member in law enforcement who is kind, funny, and compassionate, as are many of his co-workers. It's a small minority who abuse their positions, at least here, and they can no longer be tolerated, they have to go.

There is a lot wrong here, but name-calling of frustrated youth is not the solution. Think of how you were at that age. My generation was also out protesting. Sometimes it will actually change a culture but it helps when the messages are clear, articulate, and non-violent, like we heard from Martin Luther King and John Lewis.

The protesters are neither dumb, nor young, nor uneducated, nor morons. And the stories thus far have been working against Trump, not in his favor: a protester with his skull fractured by a munition fired right at him; a Navy veteran beaten up even though he had done absolutely nothing wrong; people pulled off the streets and arrested by unnamed thugs in camo in unmarked cars; lines of "moms", "dads", and "veterans", the protests dying down until Trump sent DHS thugs to inflame them again.

by Anonymousreply 6307/25/2020

A lot of Trump supporters and concern trolls have made the comparison to Nixon, r62, but, so far, it just isn't working. A substantial majority support the protests and, for the most part, the protests have not been all that violent. And were clearly winding down all over the country.

And Trump is still Trump, which means that it's all about complete dominance, which means that it's also about massive overreach. We saw that in the church photo op in D.C., which worked against Trump. The escalation in Portland is also on Trump and that's the way most of the stories I've read have played it: that the protests were winding down until Trump sent in untrained and unprepared DHS personnel and escalated them.

Most important, Nixon was running as a "law and order" candidate from the outside, not from a position of incumbency. He was blaming Democrats for losing control, insisting that he would fix it when he was President. Trump is the incumbent, which means that he's responsible. He's running against conditions that he himself created.

by Anonymousreply 6607/25/2020

Regrettably, it's still not a slam dunk, r66, but Trump is in a horrible position, which he knows, since he basically fired Parscale. The number of people who strongly disapprove of him and who think he should not be reelected is higher than we've seen for any incumbent in the past 50 years. Biden is easily winning in the overall polls and, crucially, in the swing state polls, as well.

Is Biden guaranteed to win? Of course not. A lot can happen in the next few months, including events that neither candidate has any control over. But, right now, Biden is favored to win and Trump is flailing.

Hell, this whole "law and order" shit is further evidence that Trump is in trouble. If he weren't, he wouldn't be doing this. He's out of ideas, though, and he's taking a horrible beating on his handling of the pandemic and also for his handling of the protests.

He can't run on the economy, since it's in the toilet and getting worse; immigration just isn't in the news right now and there is no "invading caravan" (although I wouldn't be surprised to see them try that again); he can't run on foreign policy, since his policies have been a disaster; he can't run on competence, since he isn't, as we've seen repeatedly this year. So what's left? He's getting desperate.

I'm totally fed up with the Portland protestors, who are basically a bunch of useless white kids protesting the fact that the cops won't let them shut down the city and run everything.

There's a reason that every society in the history of the world has used its angry young men as canon fodder and not decision-makers, they won't understand shit but will fight to the death over any damn fool thing. Societies are better off when the angry young men aren't the ones deciding what they fight over.

NYPD Chief In Leaked Video: Cops Shouldn’t Worry About Chokehold Ban

I don't doubt there are some here and there but the notion that there are a "lot" of them is just silly. And baseless. This guy seemed obvious from the get-go.

The reality is that there is too much needless violence from the protestors. If they would just leave the fucking courthouse alone in Portland there'd be no need or justification for that many federal agents there and the normal security level by either US Marshals or hired security guards like at many courthouses would suffice. I mean what the fuck do they want to do with that courthouse? Who supports firebombing or ransacking a federal courthouse? Anyone got an answer?

by Anonymousreply 18407/28/2020

R184, that is precisely the situation that existed in Portland prior to the Trump escalation. There was no need or justification for that many, or even any, federal agents there and the normal security level was sufficient. Trump deliberately escalated the conflict.

The conflict escalated when a protester got a fractured skull from a munition shot right at him.

The conflict escalated when a Navy veteran was beaten, when all he wanted to do was talk.

The conflict escalated when unidentified security personnel dragged innocent people off the street into unmarked vans.

This is on Trump, not on the Portland protesters.
