After 6 months of Pres. Barack Obama telling us that the Ferguson MO shooting was racist and encouraging rioters, his DoJ now admits that the shooting was 100% justified. But they are going to punish Ferguson anyway because the blacks there commit more crimes than whites!
USA Today reports:
When it comes to racially lopsided arrests, the most remarkable thing about Ferguson, Mo., might be just how ordinary it is.It goes on to explain that blacks commit crimes at that rate, and that Ferguson arrests are similar to the rest of the country.
Police in Ferguson — which erupted into days of racially charged unrest after a white officer killed an unarmed black teen — arrest black people at a rate nearly three times higher than people of other races.
The smoking gun that the report uses to prove that Ferguson cops are racist is that there were 7 racist cop-to-cop emails over 6 years, including:
An April 2011 email depicted President Barack Obama as a chimpanzee.Really? We had 8 years of the mainstream media portraying G.W. Bush as a chimp or monkey, as pictured above. I got that from a simple Google search. Doesn't anyone remember that? My local newspaper had an editorial cartoon on Friday attacking him, even tho he has been out of public life for 6 years.
I saw many more personal attacks on Bush than Obama. But of course Bush never tried to prosecute those who made fun of him. Just Obama and Third World dictators do that.
This shows just how far gone our ruling leftoid elites are. No free speech, even in private email. Everyone is guilty until proven innocent. They will start race riots if it suits their partisan political objectives. When they attack, they assume the worst motives.
That point about motives is important. The leftoid thought police act as if they have mind-reading powers. They do not judge you for what you do. They judge you for what they say is your motive for whatever you are doing.
They will cherry-pick facts in order to prove that you are a bad person, without comparing those facts to the population at large. The family court and CPS do this all the time. They will focus on some accident, or fight, or alleged inattentiveness, or whatever they can find to make you look bad, even if the facts are completely normal behavior for 50 million other parents.
Is anyone standing up to this nonsense? I no longer get Fox News TV, but I doubt that it even has the nerve to stand up to what Obama is doing. Anyone who does will be called a racist, and lacking empathy for the poor black people in Ferguson.
The population of Ferguson was 99% white in 1970, and 85% white in 1980. Now it is 67% black. Obviously black people are not treated that badly, because they keep moving there. Maybe they like the way that the white cops keep order there.
This is the same Obama administration that blocks the Keystone pipeline because of possible environmental problems, and not for anything that has been identified. It just adopted FCC regulations to regulate the internet, not because of what service providers are doing, but because of what they might do in the future. Ferguson is guilty without evidence. See a pattern here? These are the same kinds of people who consider fathers guilty until proven innocent.
Update: Now Obama says:
We’re the immigrants who stowed away on ships to reach these shores, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free –- Holocaust survivors, Soviet defectors, the Lost Boys of Sudan. We’re the hopeful strivers who cross the Rio Grande because we want our kids to know a better life. That’s how we came to be. (Applause.)This was the top front page story in my local newspaper, possibly in response to this letter:
We’re the slaves who built the White House and the economy of the South. (Applause.) We’re the ranch hands and cowboys who opened up the West, and countless laborers who laid rail, and raised skyscrapers, and organized for workers’ rights.
We’re the fresh-faced GIs who fought to liberate a continent. And we’re the Tuskeegee Airmen, and the Navajo code-talkers, and the Japanese Americans who fought for this country even as their own liberty had been denied.
We’re the firefighters who rushed into those buildings on 9/11, the volunteers who signed up to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq. We’re the gay Americans whose blood ran in the streets of San Francisco and New York, just as blood ran down this bridge. (Applause.)
As an African American living in this community and a subscriber to this paper, I found it despicably disturbing that nothing had been mentioned in your March 4 paper about the Department of Justice findings concerning racial bias by Ferguson police. This report could be found on the front page of every national newspaper, showing that African-Americans in Ferguson, who make up 67 percent of the population, are subjected to 85 percent of vehicular stops, receive 90 percent of citations and make up 93 percent of those arrested.The feds also found that African-Americans committed 95% of the crimes. The newspaper was doing African-Americans a favor by not mentioning the crime rates.
