Inside a liberal’s head: thoughts on the cops

Thanks to Big Country, I saw a story that came out yesterday about the Seattle Police Department no longer performing traffic stops. I met my wife after work last night- we went to the house of one of her friends. Another of her liberal teacher friends who was there was talking about this story with me. He is all in favor of it. I shot several holes in his argument.

His claim was that there is no reason for police to do a traffic stop when they can simply take down your tag number and mail a ticket to your house. Traffic stops, he says, are an escalation and almost ensures that the subjects of these stops will be nervous or scared, thus also ensuring that there will be some kind of violence that will end with the police shooting people.

I replied, “So you don’t think the cops should ever stop anyone?” He replied no, and I told him that as a paramedic who has responded to perhaps 25,000 car accidents in his career and seen hundreds of fatalities as a result, that I disagree. People would soon drive even worse than they already do. He replied that people mainly have any good driving habits because they are afraid of getting a ticket, so mailing out those tickets would have the same effect.

This was where I laughed and said, “I will just remove the license plate from my car and never get another ticket in my life. After all, if there are no traffic stops, without a tag, you have no idea where to send the ticket.”

His reply was that, of course police would stop you for no tags. I said, “Oh, so SOME traffic stops are ok?” He says yes, in cases where there are no tags, or for safety reasons. So now I move on to- what about suspected DUI? Yes. What about someone speeding? Yes, but only if someone is 25 mph or more over the speed limit. What would prevent the police from simply lowering speed limits by 25 mph? What about the kid who gets hit by a car going 44 mph in a school zone?

So then he moved the goalposts. He said that his problem was that the police use traffic stops to profile people. His daughter (white, liberal, purple hair and many piercings) lives in a ghetto, all black neighborhood and drives a red, lowrider Honda with dark tinted windows. She “gets pulled over all of the time” they question her and then “let her go because she is white.”

I said, “But profiling works.” He replied: “What?”

“Look, you are a cop. You are trying to prevent crime, or at least catch a criminal. It’s kind of your job. Which scenario will likely accomplish that- Stopping a 60 year old man driving a Lexus in a neighborhood of half million dollar homes, or a red Honda with dark tinted windows and a coffee can muffler being driven by a couple of white kids in an all black neighborhood that is notorious for drug sales and random drive by shootings?”

To his credit, he admitted that the Honda is most likely. Then I said, “Could it be that they let your daughter go because they could see that she wasn’t breaking the law, and not merely because she was white? Is it possible that they let black people go without a ticket as well?”

Then I had to let it go, because my wife was giving me “the look” for grilling her coworkers.

The fact is this: Florida did a study of traffic stops. They found out that blacks are not stopped in numbers that are out of proportion to the population of the areas where the stop is made. That is, in areas where all of the residents are black, police stop- mostly black people. Not because they are black, but because that is who is driving in that area.

Facts matter

We see how a large group of feral blacks conspired to illegally enter an occupied building of a school, where they entered a classroom and attacked a 14 year old girl, causing her injury before attempting to flee the scene.

I can’t tell you NC law, but in Florida:

  • Entering a school without permission and with the intent to commit a felony offense is burglary: a felony in the first degree, punishable with life in prison.
  • Trespassing on school property is a First degree misdemeanor.
  • Attacking a person with the intent to commit a felony is aggravated battery, a felony of the second degree.
  • The victim is a child, so the adults are guilty of aggravated child abuse, a first degree felony.
  • The fact that they planned and conspired to all of the above is another first degree felony.

If black lives really matter, the BLM group will support hefty sentences for this, but you know that they won’t.

The Big Guy

Remember when the left said that Trump was Putin’s stooge? Remember when Biden cancelled the Keystone pipeline in order to save the environment? Do you also recall how Hunter Biden was on the board of a Ukranian energy company, even though he has no experience with oil, doesn’t even speak the language, and is completely unqualified for the job?

So explain to me how it is that Biden waives sanctions so that a Russian oil company owned by Vladimir Putin can build a pipeline. Was this because Trump was a Russian stooge, or was it to save the environment, or perhaps it was because ten percent goes to the big guy?

Dealership car thieves

One of the Youtube shows that I enjoy watching is Lehto’s Law, a show where a Michigan lawyer answers legal questions from his subscribers. A video from last week referred back to a situation from years ago where a dealer was running a financing scam. It is apparently a widespread practice.

Looking back on it, the story is a familiar one. I myself have had a dealer call me the next day to tell me that they couldn’t reach a deal and wanted me to either return the car or bring in more cash. This video is worth a few minutes of your time.

Many businesses are shady, taking actions that they KNOW they are not legally permitted to take. They also know that few customers will call them on it, and even fewer will sue. For that reason, breaking the law becomes quite lucrative. Don’t be a sucker. Know your rights, fight for them.

More knees needed

A man in Ocala Florida was attacked on May 2 by three feral critters who used a baseball bat and a shovel to beat him during a robbery. The man had multiple skull injuries and fractured vertebrae as a result of the beating, and had to be placed in a medically induced coma when he was taken to the hospital due to his injuries.

The three critters were 32-year-old Darrielle Murphy, 33-year-old Keshana Oliver, and 19-year-old Jakecio Pollard. Pollard is in custody and considering that he is only 19, is already off to a great start on his career at being a lifelong violent criminal. He was arrested for petit theft, but they dropped the charges, they also convicted him of drug possession and giving a false name to a LEO, crimes which sent him to jail for 16 days. At the time of the robbery, he was awaiting trial for a jail escape.

Murphy and Oliver are still at large. They are pictured here:

Keshana Oliver has felony convictions going back to 2007. Those include burglary, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, battery, tampering with witness, tampering with evidence, affray (fighting/rioting in jail), threatening a public official, grand theft, assault during a burglary, attacking a LEO, three different cases of driving while license suspended, providing false identification, and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. For his crimes, he has been sent to prison 4 times, having served a total of 18 months in jail.

In the case of Darielle Murphy (street name “Bumbo”), the earliest crime that wasn’t a traffic offense that I could find was for “trespassing on school property after warning” in 2007 when he was 18 years old, but the arrest affidavit was sealed. Included in the paperwork for this crime was “violation of probation” which means that there were earlier convictions, but they were likely while he was a juvenile and records were sealed. Anyway, his visible convictions going back to 2009. They include charges for domestic battery (at least three convictions), tampering with evidence, escape, grand theft (at least three convictions), drug possession, battery, witness tampering, at least three convictions for petit theft, motor vehicle theft, theft of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, armed burglary, and multiple convictions for resisting arrest with violence. He also had charges dropped on “lewd and lascivious battery on a child 12-16” there as well. For his crimes, this guy has been in prison 15 times for a total 4 years and 7 months in custody.

Murphy and Oliver are career violent criminals, with Pollard following in their footsteps. They have each committed numerous violent felonies, and it is only a matter of time before they murder someone. The short bit of time they have served seems like a slap on the wrist for the long list of crimes that they have committed.

There are far more blacks like them than there are successful black professionals.

This will get me banned

The Eatonville Police Department is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that could lead to an arrest of a suspect following a stabbing death on May 8.

Police are looking for 55-year-old Barbara Kay Hartfield, who is wanted for premeditated first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon following the stabbing death of Felisha C. Johnson.

My comment will likely get deleted and possibly earn me a ban:

“Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons. We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene & using a weapon against one of the teenagers.” a quote from BLM cofounder Bree Newsome

EDITED TO ADD: Well, it did get “moderated” out of existence. They claim it violates their unpublished and ever changing community guidelines.


This shooting was caught on video in Kissimmee, Florida, just ten miles from Walt Disney World.

Is that a Pro-Mag 50 round magazine on that pistol?

Also, why does he keep racking the slide? Does it keep jamming?

Some people are just evil

Here is a case of a 14 year old evil person, who killed his 13 year old classmate. Some want to make sense of it, and I just don’t even try. To try and understand some things is to invite yourself to become like them.

Whenever someone asks me why people can do things to others, that is what I tell them: “Some people are just evil. The things that they do to other people don’t make sense to you, because you aren’t evil. Those people are broken, and that is why they do the things they do. “

I may not want to understand them, but I *do* know how to keep them from doing it again. It seems odd for me to say, because- I am opposed to the death penalty. Why? Because I don’t trust our court system not to do underhanded things like hide exculpatory evidence or manufacture evidence, not because I oppose the concept.
