Anti-social Responsibility?

Love the video of the looters in Minn, wearing masks! S’like: yeah, we’re out to destroy your livelihood, but we don’t want you to get sick!  Or maybe they’re just concerned  about their fellow looters?

(That said, what was that wimpy, stringy-armed cop thinking?  What could have possibly led him to kneel on a guy’s neck?  Not a good look.  I’d like to kill him myself. )

  1. In the case of those posers, masks is a two-fer.  Virus virtue-signaling, plus making it more difficult for Authorities to identify you.

    Jail house justice is in that stringy-armed cop’s future. Me thinks.

    Yeah,  well if there was ever a time for the city prosecutors to precipitately announce that, this is it.  What are they waiting for?  Come on!  We all saw that nerdy cop kneeling on the guy’s  neck.  And how did the perp get into that position with his head under the wheel of the cruiser?   And: for passing a counterfeit $20? That could happen to anybody.

  4. Was the giant guy on drugs?  Did he levy constructive threats against the  cops?  Did the cops try other means to control/subdue him?  First the punishment, then the sentence, then the trial – for efficiency.  I side with the cops.

    As is proper with these things, Minneapolis cops now stand back for a week re Rodney King riots in LA, , not even saying “boo” to plundering, pillaging, arsonist mobs.  How’s that going for you, Liberals, as they edge ever closer to bigger booty (that being you)?

  5. How can I show my solidarity without a Target nearby? Is there an approved list of riot worthy chain stores? I promise to wear a mask and maybe carry a placard. “Minnesota NOT Nice!”

    I’m disappointed that the US media doesn’t seem to have looked into this detail. According to the BBC (e.g., the last paragraph of “How did George Floyd die?” of https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52857334 ):

    The Minnesota police handbook states that officers trained on how to compress a detainee’s neck without applying direct pressure to the airway can use a knee under its use-of-force policy. This is regarded as a non-deadly-force option.

    In other words, with proper training, it’s an explicitly approved law enforcement technique in Minnesota. I’m sure that will change soon.

    It’s not clear to me when the technique would be useful. It’s not going to help in a fight. Basically, it’s only practical when the suspect is restrained, and when they’re restrained it isn’t necessary.
