FTA: "He was a son, he was a father, he was a partner. He was a brother, he was a devoted and present father to his child." Ummm -- yeah - - but - - I don't see "husband" listed among his attributes. His murder is horrible - - but quite predictable within that "community."

I believe history has shown us that a .357 magnum is an excellent "violence interrupter."

Violence interrupter? Who came up with that Orwellian moniker? The two recent problems happened when the violence got interrupted by the intervening body of an innocent, turning him into a bullet cushion, sacrificial artifacts over which crooked pols and Soros DAs weep crocodile tears. In many large (blue) cities the political will to eradicate crime simply does not exist, because doing so would involve arresting, trying, and imprisoning very large numbers of feral human beings who know nothing but robbery and murder. Those who prey on the innocent should be removed from society. If the street criminals aren't stopped, they spread like cancer and life in proximity to them can be brutal.

Is it really (illegal) guns that are causing all the aggravated assaults and murders that are being perpetrated in the big Democrat run inner cities, or is it gross irresponsibility by the large criminal elements of the “community” that the leftist, progressive, and socialist Democrats consider to be one of their prime voter constituencies necessary to keep them in political power?

These unnecessary deaths are further proof that criminals with guns are deadly. More than likely it is not the Police Officer's fault when an armed criminal is shot. It is a necessary action to maintain the public's safety from the armed criminal.

A "violence interrupter" is the sort of occupation that the defund the police people were thinking of when they proposed replacing police with less violent types. Doesn't look like they are doing any better than and have a higher mortality than the police, but at least the perp wasn't hurt.

This program is nothing new. Neither is the apparent lack of results. Until The Community gets its act together, street murders will continue. Absent parents with their own pathologies, surrounded by an environment of despair, victimhood, and self-segregation from the real world, where people can make a success of themselves...needing a swift clearing of the deadwood with The Community cooperating. B'more is B'more, City of Empty Slogans.

Younger brother, as I have noted previously, is a psychologist. He retired early, and volunteered to me the reason - he felt unsafe in his employment. And he was not facing potentially violent patients in every case. Probation/parole officers in Pennsylvania are armed - for good reason. It is absurd to put 'violence interrupters' - an Orwellian label! - in harm's way.

Here's the straight story. An unarmed "violence interrupter" is just going to be a bullet magnet. Death is a certainty. How do they find people stupid and unimaginative enough to even attempt this job?

New Jersey has banned police officers from lingering around polling stations and ballot drop boxes on election days under a new law that advocates argued was needed to protect against voter intimidation. Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy signed the Democratic-sponsored bill into law earlier in the week after it passed the Democratic-controlled state Legislature mostly along party lines. It says both plain-clothed or uniformed police need to keep at least 100 feet from polling stations or drop boxes.

To Trump, the unkindest cut of all was when William Barr stepped forward and declared that there had been no widespread fraud in the 2020 election, just as the president was trying to overturn Joe Biden’s victory by claiming that the election had been stolen.

Nearly 64,000 U.S. troops are at the ready in Europe to deploy to the continent's eastern flank if President Biden makes such a call to counter growing Russian aggression at the border with Ukraine. As Vladimir Putin has deployed 100,000 Russian forces to the Ukraine border and continues to stoke fears he will invade, the U.S. may have to ready its troops and its cache of arms situated throughout Europe, including 40 warships, 175 aircraft and 90 tanks. Military officials presented the commander-in-chief with a plan to deploy up to 50,000 troops if the security situation deteriorates and Russia launches an invasion

A quote from President Joe Biden exclaiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin “doesn’t want” him to beat Donald Trump in the 2020 election has come back to haunt him as the fate of Ukraine hangs in the balance. “Vladimir Putin doesn’t want me to be President,” he tweeted in February of 2020. “He doesn’t want me to be our nominee. If you’re wondering why — it’s because I’m the only person in this field who’s ever gone toe-to-toe with him.” [Tweet] Biden made this pronouncement even after former President Trump attempted to block the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline,

People who harass or bully others do so in order to validate to themselves that they are somebody. They learned this behavior from role models in their environment. Most often, they were harassed or bullied during their childhood or adolescence and they act out their hurt and frustration by treating others the way they were treated. It is a defence mechanism. “I will put you in your place and show my power over you, before you do the same to me,” is the unconscious thought process behind bullying. By doing this, the bully, in fact, feels safe.

One of the points I’ve been making over the years of political writing is that leftism has driven young white women crazy. (snip) A recent video, however, indicates that it’s not just young women whom leftism has driven insane. The video seems to show two older women, upon finding an unmasked young Black man on an elevator, wildly attacking him as they try desperately to get him and his unmasked self off the elevator. (snip) One of the women then hit him and, when he called her on it, she began chanting “Black lives matter,” while her companion continued to insist that he leave the elevator.
