AdLib On December - 5 - 2014
Vox Populi, our weekly live chat on the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PST and there’s so much to discuss, that’s for certain. Hope to see you then!

Hey there!
adlib 7 days ago
Quite a week.
adlib 7 days ago
Hi, Beatlex, Adlib. I’ll be in and out, but yes, quite a week for many reasons.

So true, PPO.

I do feel, now that POTUS is pushing it, there will be progress in the relations between minorities and the police. there of course will always be the redneck element everywhere, but it’s at least a good start.

With all that has gone on lately, with the killing of black people by the police,It hit me that the President can add to his legacy over this.Of course we cannot stamp out bigotry,but he can do plenty about how the country is policed,It is already happening.I wish Eric Holder would stay and help the President affect some positive change.What the the R’s going to do about it

Beatlex–Here’s what I”d like to see Eric Holder do. Arrest Cliven Bundy. If he resists, remind people that many leaders on the right are saying that one shouldn’t resist arrest. Whatever it takes to place Bundy under arrest, should be done. That would give me hope.

one would be aghast if a similar situation happened in a black community and a black militia backed up the offender. We know what would happen in that circumstance, don’t we?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
PPO–I just can’t wrap my mind around this blatant, uncompromising hypocrisy of the people on the right. How can you talk about “outside agitators” in Ferguson when bundy brought in outsiders? How can you talk about not resisting arrest when bundy resisted arrest with armed thugs surrounding him? How can you talk about an unarmed man’s criminal record as “proof” that he deserved what he got, when bundy has defied numerous court orders? In my book, that makes him a criminal. Why isn’t bundy in jail or dead?
glenn

Glenn-agreed!
beatlex

you got that right, glenn. And now GJs are backing the racists.
pinkpantheroz

This is a real movement now and i think there are a few real big gamechangers that can get done. Especially on the state level. First, change state laws so that a special prosecutor handles all police brutality or crime cases. It is a conflict of interest to have a DA in charge of cases against officers. Body cams will be helpful. And citizen oversight of police forces. Also, de-militaarization and more community policing. These are things that can really happen.

I’m still gobsmacked that a situation is in the US, in open carry states, that a white guy walking the streets goes unaccosted, but a black man doing the same is immediately assumed to be a criminal and gets creamed.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
glenn – We all are familiar with the mind (such as it is) of the RWs. They have no actual principles, just talking points to express their prejudices. So it’s unavoidable for them to become hypocrites, as long as something serves their goals, they support it. If it doesn’t, they fabricate reasons for why it’s so wrong. Simple minded haters.
adlib 7 days ago
BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad–In many places they have citizen review boards–in fact, they had one in Key West when I lived there. I’m not sure it’s still operating, because it had no “enforcement” powers, and whatever the CRB said, the police ignored. There is a large minority population in Key West, living in what is known as “Bahama Village”, and the police presence and activites there are the same as in any large city in the US–IOW, very heavy on “policing” the black areas of town; not so much on other areas.
glenn

7 days ago
PPO – It is kind of disheartening that racism is so widespread and openly integrated into our society. We’ve wanted to believe that it was dissolving away but it was actually just continuing along out of the spotlight.
adlib 7 days ago
Ad–I know you’re correct in your analysis of the righties, but where are the Dems with backbones? I’m seriously considering writing an open letter to Eric Holder urging him to arrest bundy, wherever, whenever, and however he can. Perhaps a SWAT raid. Too bad if bundy’s family gets hurt–if bundy had taught them better, they wouldn’t have gotten hurt.
glenn

What about that 12 yr old boy? They said they told him 3 times! to drop it.That kid was dead before that cop got his door open
beatlex

7 days ago
Evening all. Our country is officially crap!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – That is the main issue, the citizen review boards need power to enforce their decisions. Otherwise, it’s just an exhaust valve that allows racist cops the freedom to attack black men and just be pointed at by a powerless board.
adlib 7 days ago
Beatlex–it’s so sad, isn’t it? And, that policeman who shot him was let go from another police force because he had issues.

sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – I do agree that Bundy should be arrested but I think it would be the wrong time to do that. Right now the focus is on the racist cops and system out there, an arrest of Bundy right now would electrify the racists and turn this moment that has the potential for change into a kind of civil war that would become the focus. It’s admittedly political but I want the momentum kept laser focused on reforming our police and reigning them in. Then…let’s take Bundy to his new home with bars.

Hi Sabreen. It is such a heartbreaking yet poignant motto for this movement, “I can’t breathe.” And we’re not going to hold our breath for change, we’ve got to demand it.
adlib 7 days ago
beatlex – I watched the tape of Tamir Rice being shot to death. The cop shot him in less that 2 seconds. The cops lied before they knew a tape was out there.
sabreen60

7 days ago
Ad–I know you’re correct (I hate using the word “right” any more for someone who is correct), but at least someone on the left should be talking about how racist cops can do this to unarmed black men when a criminal white man, surrounded by outside agitators, and armed thugs, is still alive and free. I think it just points out the blatant hypocrisy of the system almost more than anything else does.
glenn

7 days ago
slm – What I’m talking about is the backlash after Bundy would be arrested, the racists will go on marches and protests and create a powder keg right when so many black people are also protesting…it would be very dangerous.

Sabreen – That cop who shot Tamir is going down, the DoJ isn’t going to pass up that case. Also considering how that cop was fired for being emotionally unstable where he was previously working.

Hi Kes!
adlib 7 days ago
I saw video of the 7 minutes right after Eric Garner was strangled. Why they didn’t take the handcuffs off and start CPR is beyond me. He might have been saved!
kesmarn

7 days ago
AdLib, et al – what I heard that makes the most sense to me is that when cops are involved in killing, wounding etc an unarmed individual a special prosecutor should be called in. State/local prosecutors have a symbiotic relationship with cops. They depend on the police union and cops to help them get elected. They depend on cops to help them win cases. They will not be fair when cops are involved in these cases. The other point I heard is that the relationship when cops, prosecutors and internal affairs is incestuous.
sabreen60

Hey Harleigh

Hi Harleigh and kes!
sabreen60

Sabreen I agree, it is as bad as how rape stays within the military where the victims don’t have chance of justice.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Sabreen–all of what you say about the relationship between cops and prosecutors is true. I hope we can get federal laws passed for special prosecutors in ALL states. Otherwise, I fear that some red states, mine among them, will just keep the incestuous relationship going.
glenn

7 days ago
Should be ….relationship WITH cops …
sabreen60

7 days ago
I’ve heard that too, Sabreen. That prosecutors depend on cops to testify in their cases. Although, apparently McCulloch in Ferguson doesn’t have too many qualms about indicting a black policeman who struck a suspect on the hand with his baton. He’s in jail on assault charges now.
kesmarn

7 days ago
slm – True, just saying that if we set up a situation where white racists are angry and protesting where there are black people that they mindlessly hate and would blame for Bundy’s arrest, the danger would not be worth the arrest. And it would change the focus on changing the racism in our cops and courts to racial conflicts across the country. IMO, first things first. Stop the killing by cops and their being out of control. Then with them in check and working for citizens, take Bundy to jail and other similar racist lawbreakers.

glenn

7 days ago
AdLib, I have to say that if someone has not been breathing for 7 minutes, it’s extremely likely that he’ll not make it. Not with much brain function, anyway. But it’s hard to believe none of those cops had training in CPR. It’s a disgrace that they declined to use it.
kesmarn

beatlex

Is CL in the house? And I meant to say “hi back” to Harleigh and all!
kesmarn

7 days ago
Sabreen – Yes, that should be a non-negotiable demand at this point. DAs have a built in conflict of interest when it comes to prosecuting their partners in their work, cops. That should require special state prosecutors in EVERY case against a cop.
adlib 7 days ago
The gang’s all here!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Ad – the difference is that arresting Bundy would be done by the Feds all the other shootings are by local cops. Agree that the idiots would conflate the two, but that would maybe get those who aren’t too far gone to realize the hypocrisy. And they don’t need to shoot him (although if it was me, I’d already have dropped a drone.

Hi Choice
sillylittleme

Ad and Kes–didn’t part of the tape show that Gardner was still breathing? I read somewhere that the guy who was shooting the video asked the cops why they weren’t giving Gardner CPR, and the cops replied, “because he’s still breathing.”
glenn

7 days ago
CL – Welcome! I owe you a reply to the very promising HOPE news, things have been a bit crazy this week but will catch up with you next week for sure!
adlib 7 days ago
I think they were lying, glenn. It sure didn’t look like he was breathing to me.

SLM–I know. Unbelievable, isn’t it?
glenn

sabreen60

AdLib – I am optimistic. Kathay reaffirmed support, and I’ve got it to the League, so I will keep you posted. I’m away tomorrow through next Friday evening, but I’ll know more soon I think.
choicelady

7 days ago
Sabreen and kes – I am beyond horrified at the EMT NON reponse. Every one of these deaths is sickening, but the EMT fail is terrifying.
choicelady

7 days ago
There are no checks and balances anymore at the municipal level between DA’s, cops and crime labs. At least the choking death was ruled a homocide by the coroner, to no avail with the GJ.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Sabreen, it looked like a very half-hearted effort on the part of the EMT. But the very first people on the scene should have started CPR. I almost wonder if they didn’t want to put their mouths on his… Awful thought, but that seemed consistent…
kesmarn

7 days ago
Harleigh – a man who’d been a witness to another incident said the DA asked, “Did you see a knife”. The witness said no. He was then dismissed after about 5 minutes. Nothing was asked of what he HAD seen. The fix is in.
choicelady

7 days ago
slm – Heh! Drone bomb Bundy, very funny! You’re right about there being a difference between Feds and cops but as you say, the RW would conflate them and be roused to come out and come after the protesters with counter protests that could become a flashpoint for violence. That’s my concern, that and losing this moment for change to an MSM meme about “Race Wars”. You know they’d go there.
adlib 7 days ago
kes – no one does mouth to mouth anymore. The new teaching is compression, period. So if they were repulsed, it was for NOTHING.
choicelady

7 days ago
kes – I watched an interview and the tape was played again. When Garner was on ground his chest was not moving. After a struggle you’d expect someone to breathe hard. So the idiots who insist that CPR is not given when someone is breathing are full of it.
sabreen60

7 days ago
CL, in a choking situation like this, I would have done respirations — no matter what the current trend is. It was obvious that his airway was the problem — long before his heart.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Ad – if that’s what it takes to get the revolution going, so be it. They will lose again…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – Yes, the cop said that but first of all, I think he was full of crap and second, he’s a cop, the guy who strangled Garner was a cop, those cops were not the ones whose opinions on the health of someone else, especially the man they’ve strangled.
adlib 7 days ago
TOTALLY agree, Sabreen. You would see his chest rise and fall. That is BS about him still allegedly breathing.
kesmarn

7 days ago
Sorry folks, I’ve got to get some rest. I thought I’d be able to say up longer tonight, but I can’t seem to put coherent thoughts together, so I’m giving up. G’night all, and let’s hope we get some systemic changes done soon so we can all breathe again.
glenn

7 days ago
Garner should have received help. I cannot understand any of this. Not ANY of it. Years ago as a teen I witnessed an older Black man having a seizure and stopped to help as I could. He was just conscious. Another, younger, Black man also stopped but no one else did. The younger man was furious that ‘no one’ helped. But seriously there was nothing WE could do. He was coming around. In Garner’s case, that is the JOB of the EMTs. They do know what to do!

Harleigh

CL, I have to confess that if I had not been breathing for 7 minutes, I wouldn’t want the EMTs to “bring me back.” (Too much brain damage.) But the cops were RIGHT there and did nothing. They have training. They should have used it. The first four minutes are critical.

This was an innocent man who hadn’t committed any crime and had no contraband on him.

This kind of racist police killings and assaults have been going on for a long time but many people not amongst the black communities that have been living with this hrrible reality should have been clued into the out of control and brutal nature of many police forces when the Occupy Wall Street protests were crushed by them.

One person in Ferguson who’d given info to Anonymous about KKK connections to the police, later begged Anonymous not to publish it because there had been threats to kill him and his family. They don’t play.

Ad – they did have a black man as their point person…

slm – That was just a token gesture to try and balance out Obama winning, they dumped Steele right away after his first term, in 2010, even though they won so big that year. He was just a prop and after they won, they didn’t figure they needed him anymore.

SLM Michael Steele was a token that still can’t admit he is/was just token. Of all the funny groups the Log Cabin Repubeliebaggers are the most cornfused people I can think of.

Harleigh – So true! Every time I saw a Log Cabin Repub interviewed, they could never answer the question of why they would belong to a group that despised them, saw them as perverts and voted in platforms against their having equal rights. “We’re trying to work within the party to change it.” Huh? So black people should join the Klan to change it from within?

I saw one on Rachel Maddow once or twice and she asked him point blank why he supported a totally anti-gey party that would not let them into the conventions. What a stuttering fool.

Yep, can only guess that they were just so brainwashed through childhood they just couldn’t see themselves as being anything other than Repubs like their parents. Lemmings.

I like how they want limited government but a strong national defense. My guess, not an accountant among them…

Maybe there should be a study into whether wanting to be a Republican is connected to psychological problems?
adlib 7 days ago
Or have the last 50 years been that study?

I always thought leaders in either party had to have mericas best interests at heart and follow the best and brightest. Baggers are really just plain stupid and their leaders realy REALLY SUCK!
