Some thoughts on DeBlasio and NYPD

We all saw the pictures of hundreds of police officers turning their backs to NYC mayor DeBlasio at the funeral for the two officers who were murdered in  cold blood. One thing I didn't see the media remark on was that a good number of them were black. Of course, the two murdered cops (see below for comments on use of this word) were not strictly white. Rafael Ramos was Puerto Rican, and Wenjian Liu was Chinese. They were both Americans, with families who loved them. They were also part of the thin blue line that protects us from the forces of anarchy.

I know what it's like to live in a place where the criminal element is not under control. I moved to Houston in 1981, and that year the city had over 300 murders. One of the victims was the wife of Bill Ham, ZZ Top's manager. She went into a Walgreens about a mile from my house, and an ex-con just off the bus from Huntsville ambushed her, kidnapped her and murdered her, for her red Cadillac. Bob Lanier ran for mayor on the issue of crime. He won and beefed up the police and order returned.

I am a lawyer who represents people charged with criminal offenses. Part of my job is to review all th evidence and identify problems with the investigation. 90% of the time, the cops get it right.

Kerrville is a safe place, in large part because it has a professional police force. I've been stopped for speeding a few times, and the officers have always been professional and respectful. I've had to call 911 two or three times, once to get a coked up nut out of my office, another when a gang of drunk teenagers were causing trouble, in San Antonio when my car was broken into and a pistol was stolen, and years ago in Houston, when a thug tried to rob me. Every time, the police were courteous and helpful.

The verbal attacks on police by Obama, Sharpton, DeBlasio, and all the other scumbags, and the street thugs shouting death the the police and the physical attacks, are not really about black oppression. They're part of the left's campaign to undermine authority and order.

Remember 9/11, when firemen and cops were running into the buildings.

On Deblasio and NYPD - from New York Post

To believe that, you now have to erase two sets of facts. One, the fact that violent crime in New York is overwhelmingly the province of nonwhite males, both as victims and perpetrators. Two, you have to disregard that police shot at only 40 suspects last year, reaching, like crime, a historic low.
Cops fired their guns in just 81 incidents in 2013 — including 19 times at dogs. The incidents include six police suicides, as against eight armed suspects the police shot and killed.
There is more, but you get the point. The list of facts you have to ignore to defend the violent and disruptive crowds is so long that something else is going on here, something far more sinister.
It’s only by peeling back the layers of pretend that we get to the naked truth: The whole narrative of widespread police brutality is a big fat lie.
It’s a lie that turns truth on its head, meaning the movement the mayor praises as “organic” and says is raising legitimate concerns is a scam foisted on the public for the sole purpose of advancing a far-left political agenda.
Tearing down trust for the cops is essential to opening the door for an erosion of law enforcement. “Broken windows” policing will be shattered, meaning a lower quality of life in most neighborhoods.

I want to talk to you cop to cop. I have the civilian title of police commissioner, and I’m proud for the second time to lead this great organization,” Bratton said. “In my heart and in my soul, I will always be a cop.”

He went on, “There are those that would seek to use that term [cop] in a derogatory fashion, but I always use it with pride. It denotes something more than being a police officer. It denotes the person that puts on the badge, puts on the blue uniform, and goes into the streets to put their life at risk. So, it is a name of distinction, a name of honor. For 44 years, I’m privileged to call myself a cop.”

from Breitbart
On December 28, a Bucks County, Pennsylvania, burglar, who masturbated on one resident’s neck before stealing her dog, was shot and critically wounded after breaking into a second apartment. After leaving that apartment, Medero broke into a first floor apartment and fought with two residents inside. One resident retrieved a gun and shot Medero twice, yet he continued fighting until police arrived to subdue him.

I like one of the comments: "Twice? Did he run out of ammo? Buy more ammo and keep shooting until the $cum is finished."


  1. "Of course, the two murdered cops (see below for comments on use of this word) were not strictly white."

    "strictly white"...... that is a good one Richard. I don't understand that term. Could you explain that one to me?

  2. Here's how the U.S. Census Bureau classifies people:
    White – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.

    Black or African American – A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa.

    American Indian or Alaska Native – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America) and who maintains tribal affiliation or community attachment.

    Asian – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.

    Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands.

    There are further classifications based on national origin, e.g., Hispanic.

    So, I suppose the Puerto Rican cop was white/hispanic
    and the Chinese American was Asian

    Who cares - they were both Americans. The same would be true if they were black officers.
