Ferguson Police Are Following These Guidelines

by JAM

 

Guidelines

The following guidelines are for police officers, neighborhood watchmen and anyone else that was “frightened” by an unarmed Black person. They’ve been utilized successfully throughout the Jim Crow era and are heavily based on 18th century Slave Codes. Yet even in 2014, these guidelines are as ripe as ever. During the Ferguson police press conference held on August 15th, 2014, they let the public “know” that they are carefully following these guidelines step by step.

1. Act Like It Didn’t Happen

Best case scenario is if the person killed was a prisoner, had a criminal past, was homeless or a sex worker. Generally society has marginalized these sets of people so much that their humanity and human rights are often overlooked.  In that case, someone is less likely to champion for them, come looking for them or report them missing. This is the easiest type of crime to push under the rug.

If they officer that killed the person is also Black, this makes it even easier. Then the public can’t blame racism.

2. Hide The Facts

If there are any key facts that can point to your wrongdoing, hide or destroy them before the media or an outside department gets wind of it. Remember that the evidence is in your control. Sometimes people catch feelings, so fire or publicly discredit any possible whistleblowers. Dig up dirt on them to make their words less credible.

3. Be Slow To Make An Arrest

No matter if the killing took place in broad day light or how many people saw it, don’t make an immediate arrest. It didn’t happen until you said it happened. You are the one to determine whether an actual crime took place. Take as much time as you need. Don’t worry about public push back. Let them eat cake! In due time you will make your decision on how to handle this. Don’t provide any information to the public while you’re getting your story together/or creating one.

4. Demand that the public believe you over their lying eyes.

What? That’s not a chokehold, that’s the police officer giving the Heimlich maneuver to a helpless man.
What? That’s not a long distance shot, that’s a close range shot.
What? That’s not a gun, that’s a taser. At least, we thought it was a taser.

No matter what the video shows, don’t allow the public to believe their own eyes.

5. Create an optical illusion.

Is it a bird, a plane? The public has a short memory. Work off of that, use this knowledge to your advantage. If you have any footage or videos potentially showing the person in perceived devious acts, send it to every news media outlet imaginable. Even the blogs. Make sure that every Tom, Dick and Harry knows that one time, the person smoked weed or gave “the finger.” They were bad, very bad and had to be stopped before they became a greater nuisance to society.

6. Criminalize, Criminalize, Criminalize

Can you link the person to a crime? Can you dig up something from their past? Did they ever attend a juvenile detention center? Did they have alcohol or marijuana in their system? If any of these things applies, use it as your greatest asset. This will prove to some members of the public that the person was not worthy of life.  If you can’t find anything, make something up. Try to make it sound as believable as possible. Say the person was a suspect to a recent crime.

Do this even if the “alleged” crime is as simple as selling cigarettes on the side walk or stealing a box of Swisher Sweets. In the legendary words of Tim Gunn, “Make it work!”

7. Push For No Blacks On The Jury Or No Jury At All

If the case actually goes to trial, there can absolutely be no Black people on the jury. None. Push for them to all be excused for some sort of inherent bias. If even one Black person is on the jury, consider the case over. They fight amongst each other a lot, but they tend to run a tight ship when things get rough. Also push for no jury, if applicable. In that case your local friendly judge can let you go home.
8. Glorious Freedom – Rinse & Repeat 

If you’ve managed to make it through the obstacle course of so called “accountability” you’re free to go back on the streets to protect and serve. This also goes for self appointed neighborhood watchmen and anyone else that has taken an issue with Black people just living their lives.

Writer’s Note: Everyone of these instances continues to happen. The police departments are meant to protect and serve. There are many police officers across the country that are working with their local communities but there are others that are terrorizing their local communities.  There needs be a change, bottom up, top down and every way imaginable. At the same time I recognize that many people say they hate the police, until they need them. Whenever we feel like our lives are in danger we reach for the phone to call the police. But we need stability, trust and respect. Communities can not be protected without mutual respect. Crimes can not be solved and lives can not be saved if police don’t listen to the local community. But the question remains, “Do the police and government care about Black lives as much as others?” History has shown us the answer to that question time and time again.

TWEET ME Field Negro – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • Ben Stein's brain takes the day off. When I first heard the comments attributed to Ben Stein (Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller? ), I must admit that I thought that it was satire. But sadly for my conservative friends, it would appear that he was serious.


    "It’s been almost three weeks since unarmed teenager Michael Brown was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri and we are just now finding out what the teacher from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off has to say about the whole thing. According to actor turned conservative commentator Ben Stein, Brown was armed, with his “incredibly strong, scary self.”


    “The idea of calling this poor, young man unarmed when he was 6’4″, 300 pounds, full of muscles and was apparently, according to what I read in The New York Times, on marijuana — to call him unarmed is like calling Sonny Liston unarmed, or Cassius Clay unarmed,” Stein told NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg on Wednesday. “He wasn’t unarmed. He was armed with his incredibly strong, scary self.”


    If by “armed” Stein means Brown had arms, like Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali and nearly every other human, then that is one thing. But in this context, “armed” usually means holding a firearm, something that could definitely be said of Officer Wilson, but not of Brown.


    Moments later, Stein said that we as a country have moved from “lynching” of African-Americans to similar “lynchings” of police, as evidenced by Attorney General Eric Holder weighing in on the case. And, he also seems to think that George Zimmerman was a “policeman.”" [Source]


    Man, how many dumb racist things can you say in one interview?


    And to think that folks on the right get mad when they are painted as clueless racists. Well they are painted that way because of the musings of great conservative thinkers like Ben Stein.


    Speaking of clueless racists, I love the Charles Blow takedown of FOX VIEWS personality, Bill O'Reilly.


    Bill does not seem to think that there is such a thing as "white privilege."


    "Blow begins by quoting O’Reilly:
    “Last night on ‘The Factor,’ Megyn Kelly and I debated the concept of white privilege whereby some believe that if you are Caucasian you have inherent advantages in America. ‘Talking Points’ does not, does not believe in white privilege. However, there is no question that African-Americans have a much harder time succeeding in our society than whites do.”
    “It is difficult to believe that those three sentences came in that order from the same mouth,” Blow writes. Once you admit that it’s “harder for blacks to succeed,” he argues, then the converse for whites must be “a form of privilege.” He adds, “When one has the luxury of not being forced to compensate for societal oppression based on basic identity, one is in fact privileged in that society.”


    RELATED: A Lesson for Bill O’Reilly on ‘Asian Privilege’
    After quoting O’Reilly’s most recent use of the term “race hustlers” to describe those who “blame white privilege” for any problems that African-Americans face, Blow concludes:
    No, Mr. O’Reilly, it is statements like this one that make you the race hustler. The underlying logic is that blacks are possessed of some form of racial pathology or self-destructive racial impulses, that personal responsibility and systemic inequity are separate issues and not intersecting ones. 
    This is the false dichotomy that chokes to death any real accountability and honesty. Systemic anti-black bias doesn’t dictate personal behavior, but it can certainly influence and inform it. And personal behavior can reinforce people’s belief that their biases are justified. So goes the cycle. 
    But at the root of it, we can’t expect equality of outcome while acknowledging inequality of environments. 
    Only a man bathing in privilege would be blind to that." [Source]
