#OnlySomeBlackLivesMatter Why Don’t These #BlackLivesMatter?

Excessive In a state like Minnesota, this is normal? Or just for black drivers?

Cops are being used as revenue collectors. This puts a particularly high burden on the poor, who cannot simply pay fines for the crime of driving while black, nor can they afford hiring lawyers to keep the points off their license, so their insurance skyrockets. This kind of policing is exactly why people have trouble trusting police.

America is Becoming a 3rd World Country Cash-Strapped Towns Are Un-Paving Roads They Can’t Afford to Fix

Data Reveals the Real Problem A year of reckoning: Police fatally shoot nearly 1,000

There is no widespread conspiracy by police to murder blacks. Are there individual cases of prejudice? Almost certainly. Yet, the data reveals that most of the shootings are against whites. We can see that there needs to be better training on how to deal with mental illness, and people who are trying to “commit suicide by cop”. We can see that cops need better training on how to deal with suspects who are fleeing arrest. We can also see that the crime rate in predominantly black areas is much higher than other such communities. So, we need to figure out WHY there is so much more crime in these communities, and work on doing things that will alleviate the root causes, like poverty, failing schools, crumbling infrastructure, and broken families. We also have to make sure that the justice system is fairly representing the poor, and that there is no systemic discrimination against blacks. The War on Drugs has filled our jails with blacks. So, the ones that abortion haven’t murdered, are badly educated by sub-standard schools, and then shuffled off to prison. AND ABOVE ALL ELSE, WE HAVE TO HOLD MEDIA ACCOUNTABLE FOR DIRECTLY CAUSING THE DEATHS OF POLICE OFFICERS THROUGH PISS POOR REPORTING, AND BLACK LIVES MATTER, FOR FOMENTING FURTHER VIOLENCE AND PREJUDICE.

Cops learn to be cops from other cops. If those cops happen to be bad, it affects all the other cops within their purview.

Mad Science The 1970s “gay-cure” experiments written out of scientific history

Yeah, Bob Heath was a nut. And yet here’s the thing: because the APA changed the definition of homosexuality, we will never be allowed to know anything more about it. How EXACTLY do such same sex attractions develop, and how might they be cured? There is zero evidence that homosexuality is genetically determined, but until the 70’s, there was plenty of evidence that it was a mental disorder. After deviant behavior was re-defined as “normal”, all attempts to discover the mechanisms of the disease ceased. Instead, we have a statist religion of “gayness” that wishes to impose a Stalinist system of controlled speech and thought to enforce a wholly un-scientific viewpoint. And so the sick remain sick. Where’s the compassion in that?

It Takes a Special Kind of Evil to Lie to Waze There Are Better Ways to Kill Traffic Than Lying to Waze

The transportation systems that were invented and constructed in the 50’s, and which overwhelmingly favored automotive traffic, are outdated and inadequate for our growing, largely urban, population. We need to stop wasting money on endless government boondoggles, globalist schemes, and vote-buying and focus our resources and intelligence on improving our infrastructure. Otherwise we wind up looking like every 3rd world country I’ve seen – outdated roads, crumbling infrastructure, stunted economic development.
