Thugocracy

For starters, I agree with this completely.

I can rant and rave all day and all night about the many systemic problems we have with law enforcement in America. Too militarized; too isolated from the the people they are supposed “to protect and serve;” far too willing to protect their authority over absolutely harmless people…up to the point of shooting them; part of the disgusting schemes of most municipalities to use policing to increase their revenues via ticketing; and about a million other reasons.

But when people riot? All bets are off. I want the cops to swing those batons and bowl people over and shoot them with pepper spray, non-lethal rounds, and lethal rounds if the lives of the police or innocents are at any risk. I want them to use snipers to shoot anyone throwing incendiaries. I want them to arrest everybody, including the media stoking the fires of insurrection, the hilariously misnamed Antifa and BLM “medics,” who claim some sort of immunity, and then toss them in wagons and drive them out to some remote county jail for a few days of bliss in the general population.

I’m with ya, buddy. No cop-sucker I, but as I’ve said here many times: I have both family and friends who are cops, and have been around ’em my whole life. I’ll take a cop six days a week and twice on Sundays over any ten Burn Loot Murder or PantiFa types you could name. Yes, there are plenty of bad-apple cops out there, but by and large the boys in blue are okay with me.

Right up until I run across a sickening story like this.

Alecia Kitts drove an hour and a half from Marietta to Logan, Ohio to watch her son’s football game.

In the first quarter she was approached by an officer from the Logan Police Department because she was not wearing a mask.

According to Tiffany Kennedy, the woman who shot the above video, Kitts had not been warned for not wearing a mask prior to the officer approaching her.  Kennedy also said that Kitts has asthma and that’s why she was not wearing a mask.

“There is no reason to tase someone and arrest them for not wearing a mask,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy also pointed out the female officer who is shown running toward the Logan officer and Kitts at the end of the video was not wearing a mask – pulling one out of her pocket as she was in pursuit.

“Alecia’s mom said that when the officer tased her, the current went through the bleachers and zapped the kid sitting there too.”

Kitts appears to be socially distanced from others in the crowd and sitting with her family. “There were only 25 or 30 fans from our town on our side,” said Kennedy.

Inexcusable, unacceptable, and completely intolerable. Being defunded ought to be the very LEAST of worries for Gestapo goons like these; asshole cops like this ought to be prosecuted for assault and thrown into general-pop for a good, long stretch of TRULY “hard time.”

Hoft asks: “This Is America?” No, Jim, it is not. It most certainly is NOT. Not even close, it ain’t.

Yeah, yeah, she offered resistance to Officer Friendly’s attempt to cuff her for not wearing the Mask of Submission. Well, so what? In the first place, she was in the right. The Founders would have expected no less from her, and from all of us, than flat refusal to comply with any and all contra-Constitutional tyranny, regardless of what flimsy “health-and-safety” excuse the Power pukes up for imposing it. It might not have been the wisest move; it might not have been the easiest path for her to take. But as a matter of principle, it was the correct one.

In the second place, the woman suffers from chronic asthma—a condition which, according to the Ohio decree (along with every other one I know of), provides her with preemptive absolution for the sin of refusing the Mask Of Submission.

But when I first started working on this post, right away I decided to hold off on putting it up to wait for the silver lining I anticipated: a budget-busting lawsuit that would leave Ms Kitts a very wealthy woman indeed. And lo, my patience has been rewarded, with not one but two silver linings cropping up.

A police officer who tasered a woman who refused to wear a mask at a middle school football game has been bombarded with death threats and racist insults.

Some of those opposed to the officer’s actions, according to ABC6, have begun inundating the Logan Police Department with angry and threatening phone calls.

A captain with the department stated that their office is currently receiving more than “300 calls an hour” regarding Smith, who has also received “multiple death threats and racial insults.”

Aww, what a shame. Sucks to be you, Deppitty Dawg.

A lawyer for Kitts, the woman who was arrested, has argued that his client was exempt from the law due to her asthma.

“Ms. Kitts explained to the policy officer and administrators that she has asthma, but they ignored her,” attorney Maurice A. Thompson told NBC4. “Their position was that un-masked asthmatic must leave the stadium, (which) is not consistent with any directive or other law.”

Go get ’em, then. Make ’em pay, but good.

  1. Nail on the head with that one. Most cops are decent if imperfect. A lot of policy I don’t like and changes to the way they operate that are bad.

    But there are way too many like this asshole that deserve lead projectiles.

  2. Saw that video the day after it happened. First thing I noticed? The decidedly dark complexion of the arrester.

    Coincidence? I think fucking not.

    Put this fucker in prison with some neo-Nazis or White biker-gang-types and he’d last a whole 11 minutes or so.

  3. First off, as far as I can tell, Mask Mandates are not Law.
    They are Decrees issued by Governors or Mayors or County Executives. They are wholly Unconstitutional. None of these people have the Power to tell a healthy person to take precautions against a disease or to protect someone else from same. This is made all the more egregious because the Masks do not even WORK in preventing transmission.

    The really frightening aspect of this is how many people on the Right, ostensibly, believe that a School Employee has the Power to order someone to wear the mask and if you disobey the Needle Nosed Pencil Necked Glorified Hall Monitor Government Employee they have the Power to declare that you are Trespassing.
    Supposedly the officers that responded to the scene were called in because she was trespassing. Now I see there is no evidence anyone asked her to wear the Mask or Leave. The first she heard of this was when a Police Officer approached her.

    Yet my real point is how we get to the point that people who supposedly value freedom can think this way. She is at a Public Event in a Public Area of a Public School which was open to the Public to attend. Yet, some have berated me and are saying that this was Private Property and that the School Employee can eject people for whatever reason they deem fit, because they represent the School Board, who are the “Owners” of the Public Schools.
    Now we don’t even own the schools we fund? An incredible statement!

    She had every Right to be at that Public Event to watch her son play. No one had any Power to ask her to wear a Mask. She is healthy. An employee of the School does not have unlimited Power on School Grounds to act like an SS Officer.

    If we can’t even get these basic principles agreed upon from people who are supposedly on our side, it is really disheartening to continue the fight.
    Fight On, I will though.

    1. They are wholly Unconstitutional.

      1. Most of these mask orders, house arrest orders, and business shutdown orders were issued as executive orders, I think. Some are emergency health orders, by varying names, which are supposedly different from executive orders but I can’t figure out how — they come from the governor and not from the legislature, so they sure smell the same.

      2. Executive orders affect only members of the executive branch. Not the judiciary and not the legislature and emphatically not the members of the public who are not employed by the government.

      3. Possibly that’s the difference with the health orders, that by law they affect everyone in the state. This is unclear and more difficult than I’d expected to track down.

      4. When it comes to businesses, health inspectors and such can always find an excuse to shut down the business.

      5. Health orders in general require a defined emergency health situation and must be for a defined and limited time, and the details of the order must have some relationship to the declared emergency and the best scientific advice.

      6. Many of the details of many of the executive orders are illegal under the state constitutions or laws. I believe that the same applies to many of the health emergency orders.

      7. Bottom line, though, the illegality doesn’t matter. Citizens have filed for injunctions in most, possibly all, states which ordered business shutdowns, house arrests, and masks, and in almost all cases the courts have declined to hear the requests. (That’s as of several weeks ago; I haven’t checked since early September and maybe it’s changed.) The law is what the members of the ruling class say it is, never mind the printed words.

      1. That we have been drawn down into Tyranny slowly but inexorably is known and these situations merely confirm it.
        How will we respond is important.
        Voting Trump into Office with as large as a majority in the rest of Government as possible is our last chance of solving this problem of Tyranny peacefully.
        Get out and Vote Republican. Then be prepared to fight.

  4. I think it’s perfectly acceptable to root for both sides, BLM and Thin Blue Line, to lose.

    Cops may be a necessary evil at times, but if you’re on the Right, they are not your friends and only rarely your allies.
