‘Shooting ’em in the Leg’

Biden: Police Should Respond to ‘Unarmed Person’ Coming at Them With a Knife by ‘Shooting ’em in the Leg’ Rather Than the Heart

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is finally up out of the basement over the past week.

As we reported, he admitted to basically hiding saying it was working well.

But it didn’t prevent him from gaffing interviews from the basement and since he’s been out, he seems to be even worse.

But he really went to town on during a speech at a church with black community leaders in attendance.

First, as we reported, he lied claiming that he called for a shutdown a month before Trump issued social distancing guidelines, which he not only never did, he argued against travel restrictions and suggested such things were “hysterical xenophonbia” and said outright he didn’t think they would do any good.

But then he really went over the slide, and said something that has people on both sides of the aisle disturbed.

Biden said if an “unarmed person” coming at the police with a “knife or something” should be trained so that they “shoot ’em in the leg instead of in the heart.” He was talking about that as a possible “change” that one might make to approach to police training.

Oh, my. Where to begin?

First, if an unarmed person is coming at you, they don’t have a knife. If they have a knife, they are not “unarmed.” Biden either doesn’t understand that or is, as usual, incoherent.

If you’re shooting an unarmed person without a threat to your life, then yes, that’s a problem and you would not be advising police to “shoot in the leg.”

But no, if a man with a knife is coming at you, you don’t “shoot for the leg,” that’s an incredibly stupid comment. Every and any police officer will tell you, they have been taught to shoot for center mass to take down the attacker. If you shoot for the leg, you are likely to miss and die. No one is trained that way because it’s a way to guarantee you die.

The comment makes it clear that Biden has absolutely no idea what he is talking about.

He said he would form a “police oversight board,” already a commonplace thing for decades in most major cities. Again, something he seems not to know.

Just what did he do to solve anything for the 36 years he was in the Senate and the eight years as Vice President? Not a darn thing. Indeed, they had riots throughout the Obama administration. He and Barack Obama just made it worse, stoked division and police hatred.

From Fox News:

Rev. Shanika Perry, youth pastor of Bethel AME Church, brought up concerns young people have with Biden’s support of the 1994 crime bill.

“It’s been difficult to serve as a surrogate to them because they have great issues with the participation in that. And so they want to know how do you plan to undo the impact of the mass incarceration and the things that have resulted from that particular crime bill,” she told the former vice president.

As he jumped into the White House race 14 months ago, Biden was slammed by many of his nomination rivals for his role leading efforts to write and pass the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. The law has long been criticized for unfairly impacting minorities for its “three strikes” rule, which expanded the death penalty and increased incarcerations, and for encouraging tougher parole rules.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has enacted the First Step Act, to help non-violent offenders who were over sentenced to get out and rebuild their lives. He is already working on the Second Step Act.

Democrat Governance

Opinion: This is a Result of Democrat Governance

AP featured image
Floyd was arrested on a forgery warrant but died after an officer placed his knee on his neck

See the picture above? It’s a result of Democrat governance. The outrage we are seeing manifested over the past few days, is focused on the wrong target(s). We are getting wall to wall coverage of the aftermath of the in-custody death of George Floyd. Riots in major cities, property damage and even a few deaths are just part of that aftermath. Innocent people are being harmed, while at the same time, some are attempting to affix cause and blame for Mr. Floyd’s death on the wrong parties.

As usual, using admittedly disturbing video, there are some who in a rush to judgement and to take advantage of this terrible tragedy for their own political ends, cannot seem to wait for the facts to come out. Instead, they instigate violence and property damage and actually harm the very folks they purport to care about. Also as usual, the more time that passes, the more information comes out that increases our knowledge and subsequently alters our perception of exactly what happened.

Two critical pieces of such information have just come to light. One is more critical than the other (more on that in a bit). This new information may have actually changed the legal aspect of this situation. First of all, The Medical Examiner’s preliminary report found, according to my good friend and colleague, Betsy Vaughn

the autopsy “revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation” and that Floyd had underlying health conditions.

That implies that former Officer Derek Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck, although very disturbing to look at, likely was not the proximate cause of his death.

Here is the second and and from my foxhole, the more critical piece of information. First, some background. During my brief, ten year stint as a Deputy Sheriff, Florida Law and Sheriff’s Office Procedures, considered any blow to the groin, head or neck, to be a use of “Deadly Force.” The only time you can do that, would be the same type of situation where you could legally shoot somebody. In short…Generally it’s a huge No-No.

My original thoughts, based on what I could see in the video, that it was unlikely, given the position of Chauvin’s knee, that there was any impediment to Floyd’s airway. The Preliminary Autopsy report would seem to confirm that. Having said that, and considering that any time you are hitting, grabbing or holding somebody by the neck, that’s still an inherently dangerous situation. My previous Law Enforcement experience and training, had me thinking that although a murder conviction was unlikely, there might be a good chance of an Aggravated Battery conviction for using an inherently dangerous and forbidden technique.

Imagine my surprise when I read this, out of a Law Enforcement Publication

According to the Minneapolis Police Policy Manual (emphasis NOT mine) the restraint used was in policy and it also indicates that training is given to officers on the maneuver.

According to the policy, a neck restraint can be used as a form of a “non-deadly option” and is defined as  “compressing one or both sides of a person’s neck with an arm or leg, without applying direct pressure to the trachea or airway (front of the neck).”

Chauvin was applying pressure to the back and side of the neck and not in the front and appeared to be compliant with existing policy.

So let’s recap this situation. We have a Police Officer with a long history of questionable contacts with members of the community he serves. Recent disclosures also tell us that the (likely now former) Democrat VeepStakes front runner, Senator Amy Klobuchar owns a piece of this. According to my good friend and colleague Brad Slager, Klobuchar, while a Hennepin County prosecutor, failed to indict Chauvin and several other Officers in a Police shooting and death of a citizen. That wasn’t the only time.

Beyond that one case involving Chauvin, activists have pointed to more than two dozen other instances of police-caused citizen deaths which she did not take action on during her tenure. As the Floyd case percolates these instances seem to make Klobuchar even more toxic.

What can we reasonably conclude? Well, we have a Democrat run city that hasn’t had a Republican Mayor in over 4 Decades. This city government allowed a police officer with a very questionable track record to remain on the force. Moreover, the (lately heretofore) leading contender to be former Vice President Biden’s VP pick, is now being scrutinized over her lack of prosecution of Police Officer shootings (Chauvin among them) of civilians back when she was a county prosecutor. Finally, We find out that the most horrifically perceived part of the whole incident, a Police Officer’s knee on a handcuffed arrestee who does not appear to be struggling, is actually a sanctioned (by the Officer’s agency) “non deadly” or “non lethal” restraint technique.

Here’s the bottom line. Not only does Democrat governance own a piece, a large piece of Mr. Floyd’s death, but such governance has also made it immeasurably harder to bring to justice, the man who was likely responsible for his death. I have absolutely no regard for the violent, property destroying protestors. As for the folks who are rightfully disturbed by the manner in which George Floyd died, they might wish to reconsider the targets of their outrage. It’s Democrat governance.

Ellison: Rioting is okay

Ellison: Rioting is okay if it’s directed at the police

As Minneapolis continues to be burned, looted and generally destroyed by “protesters” who are filling the streets, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison issued a note of caution to the rioters yesterday. He wanted everyone to show some kindness to the National Guard units and other military personnel who they may encounter. That was rather thoughtful of him, assuming anyone actually listens. It’s the sort of message one might hope the AG would be sending.

See Also: Biden campaign staffers contribute to group bailing out rioters in MN

Sadly, he didn’t stop there. In order to ensure the rioters knew what he meant, Ellison went on to draw a distinction between the National Guard and the police. You see, it’s okay to direct your anger (and presumably your violence) against the cops. But it’s not the National Guard’s fault. (Free Beacon)

Minnesota attorney general Keith Ellison (D.) told Minneapolis residents protesting the death of George Floyd to direct their ire at local police, rather than the National Guard that has been called into the city to help restore order…

“I’d like everyone to recognize the fact that the National Guard just a week ago was administering COVID-19 tests to help people,” Ellison said. “The presence you see on the street, don’t react to them the way you might react to the Minneapolis Police Department. It’s not the same group. They have different leadership, different authority, and their job is to try to bring peace and calm back again. Please remember that this is not the group that you associate with unfair conduct.”

If Ellison had even managed to stop there, you might find room to forgive his poor wording. He’s just drawing a distinction between civilian and military law enforcement. I mean, it’s not as if he’s actually excusing the rioting, arson and violence, right?

Sorry to disappoint you, but that’s exactly what he’s doing. He went on to quote MLK, saying a riot is how “the unheard get heard.”

Both the Governor and the Mayor of Minneapolis are at least mouthing some of the right words and giving the appearance of trying to discourage the rioting. The Governor was even talking about taking up President Trump on his offer to send in some military police. Granted, the Mayor’s response has been a bit more muted and lacks decisiveness, but he’s not completely ordering his cops to stand down and surrendering control of the streets like Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake did during the Freddie Gray riots.

But at the same time as they are trying to calm the city down, they’ve got the Attorney General going out in public and saying that it’s basically okay to attack the cops as long as you leave the nice National Guardsmen alone. In this regard, Ellison is standing in for the role that Rawlings-Blake played in Baltimore in 2015. And as I was discussing with some friends on social media this week, after Baltimore burned down, it never really recovered. While other large cities were seeing significant decreases in their murder rates, Charm City was setting new records for the most killings. The police lost faith in City Hall and started doing less policing, It’s a nasty downward spiral that becomes difficult to pump the brakes on once it begins.

Of course, I’m not sure what any of us should have expected. As the linked article reminds us, when Ellison was in Congress (in the seat now held by Ilhan Omar) he openly supported Antifa. When Minnesota chose to elect an Attorney General who has very little interest in enforcing the law, this was pretty much what they signed up for. Perhaps they’ll want to keep all of this in mind next time they go to the polls. I would also remind the Mayor and the Governor that after Baltimore went up in flames in 2015, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s approval ratings plunged so far that she didn’t even bother running for another term. Something needs to be done to bring this situation under control quickly and at least for now, Keith Ellison is part of the problem, not the solution.

Killing of Federal Officer

Authorities: Killing of Federal Officer in Oakland Protest was Domestic Terrorism

(AP) — The killing of a federal contract security officer who was watching over a protest in Oakland, Calif., was an act of domestic terrorism, U.S. authorities said Saturday.

A vehicle pulled up outside the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building at about 9:45 p.m. Friday local time and someone opened fire at two contract security officers who worked for the Federal Protective Service of the Department of Homeland Security, killing one and critically wounding the other, authorities said.

The identities of the officers were not released.

The officers protect federal court houses as part of their regular duties. U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials said they were monitoring the protest over the police killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

“When someone targets a police officer or a police station with an intention to do harm and intimidate — that is an act of domestic terrorism,” DHS Acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said.

A suspect hasn’t been named and it wasn’t immediately known whether authorities have determined if the shooter had anything to do with the protest.

Police said the protest began peacefully but spiraled into chaos late into the night. Some demonstrators smashed windows, vandalized stores stopped traffic on a freeway and set fires. Police said several officers were struck by objects and responded by firing tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.

The federal building’s glass doors were smashed and the front entrance was sprayed with anti-police graffiti.

Scalise Shreds Pelosi

Scalise Shreds Pelosi’s Attempt to Introduce Proxy Voting

Scalise Shreds Pelosi's Attempt to Introduce Proxy Voting

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) ripped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to change the voting rules at the eleventh hour. Or, rather, at the 2 o’clock in the morning hour. The Democrat wanted to introduce proxy voting for their upcoming vote on the Payment Protection Program to protect the health of lawmakers during the coronavirus, she claimed. But Republicans weren’t having it.

“You saw an effort yesterday, by Nancy Pelosi—in secret at 2:30 in the morning—to drop a document to literally change the way Congress has voted for over 200 years. To go to some proxy system that had never been vetted,” Scalise said. “Was not a bipartisan effort.”

“Any changes of this magnitude must be done in a thoughtful, bipartisan manner through regular order and with input from all members of the House,” Scalise’s office said. “Instead, the Speaker is choosing to capitalize on the crisis and jam through a rules change that could have serious constitutional and institutional repercussions.”

GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy added the idea was not well thought out and could result in some funny business.

After some debate, Pelosi finally gave up the stunt.

“We strongly urged against it,” Scalise added. “We whipped against it yesterday. And I’m glad that Speaker Pelosi pulled that bad idea today.”

The House plans to move forward with a previously scheduled vote on Thursday on additional funding for the Payment Protection Program, but they’ll proceed with caution. It will be staggered voting, with lawmakers entering the House chamber in nine different groups based on their time slots. The measure, which passed the Senate on Tuesday, will provide an additional $310 billion for small businesses impacted by the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump on Friday said that the National Guard was on the scene in Minneapolis to help stop rioting in the city.

“The National Guard has arrived on the scene. They are in Minneapolis and fully prepared,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The president commented after three nights of protests and riots took place in the city in reaction to the death of George Floyd after a police officer was filmed pressing down on his neck for several minutes despite pleas for help.

“George Floyd will not have died in vain,” Trump wrote. “Respect his memory!!!”

Earlier Friday, Trump said that rioters would face heavy consequences if they failed to stop tearing up the city of Minneapolis.

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” Trump wrote, adding that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

Connecting the Past with the Present

Memorial Day: Connecting the Past with the Present

By Scott S. Powell
————————

The Civil War was America’s most costly war with some 360,222 Union and 258,000 Confederate lives lost. Many historians put the death toll higher, but regardless, the number of Civil War casualties exceeds the nation’s loss in all its other wars combined — the two World Wars, the Korean and Vietnamese Wars and subsequent wars right up through conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Memorial Day had its origin as Decoration Day following that most horrible and costly war, dating back to April 25th, 1866 when a former chaplain in the Confederate Army accompanied a group of women from Columbus, Mississippi to Friendship Cemetery — the burial ground for about 1600 men who died in the Battle of Shiloh — for the purpose of honoring the dead with decorations of flowers.  At that time, Columbus, like the rest of the South, was occupied by Union Army forces, and some townspeople were fearful of creating new animosity, assuming that the decorations would favor Confederate over Union graves.

The women had no such intention, and in decorating the graves of both sides equally their action was the catalyst for a national reconciliation movement. At the time the New York Herald published a tribute, noting: “The women of Columbus, Mississippi, have shown themselves impartial in their offerings to the memory of the dead.  They strewed flowers alike on the graves of the Confederate and of the Union soldiers.”

Memorial Day, as Decoration Day gradually came to be known, originally honored those lost while fighting in the Civil War. When the United States became embroiled in World War I and World War II, the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in subsequent wars.  With the observance of Memorial Day being inconsistent from state to state, finally in 1968 Congress declared Memorial Day as a federal holiday.

Hardly a year goes by without a commemoration of some war memorial event anniversary. October 4, 2018 commemorated 25 years since U.S. forces suffered the Black Hawk Down defeat in Somalia.  September 1, 2019 commemorated the 80th anniversary of the commencement of World War II, which officially began when Germany invaded Poland.  May 4, 2020 was the 75th anniversary of VE Day, when the guns fell silent at the end of that war in Europe.  August 15, 2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of the end of fighting in the Pacific theater, when Japan surrendered unconditionally to the Allies, effectively ending World War II.  November 11, 2021 will mark the 100th anniversary of the burial of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.

A discussion of Memorial Day would just not be complete without appreciating the significance of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, formally established on what was then known as Armistice Day, three years after the end of World War I.   Congress had approved the burial of an unidentified American soldier who had fallen on a battlefield in France at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.  The Tomb of the Unknown Solider would come to be considered the most hallowed grave at Arlington Cemetery — the most sacred military cemetery in the United States.

And so it was on November 11, 1921, that the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was consecrated in the presence of President Warren G. Harding and other government, military, and international dignitaries.  That Unknown Soldier from World War I was buried with highest honors, lowered to his final resting place on top of a two-inch layer of soil brought from France — that he might rest forever atop the earth on which he died.

The selection process for the World War II Unknown proved more difficult than that of World War I, since American soldiers had fought on three continents.  Then the process was interrupted by the Korean War, which resulted in numerous deaths who could not be identified. Finally on May 28, 1958, caskets bearing the Unknowns of World War II and the Korean War arrived in Washington.  The caskets were rotated such that each unknown serviceman rested on the “Lincoln catafalque,” a raised platform in the Capitol Rotunda that held President Lincoln’s casket in April 1865.  Two days later on May 30, then the official date of Memorial Day, those Unknowns were transported to Arlington, where they were interred in the plaza beside their WW I comrade.

Due to the advances in DNA identification technology, most every Vietnam War casualty recovered could be identified.  Yet with so many “missing in action” it was decided that the crypt designated for the Vietnam Unknown could remain empty.  It was rededicated on September 17, 1999 to honor all missing U.S. service members from the Vietnam War, with the inscription on the crypt reading, “Honoring and Keeping the Faith with America’s Missing Servicemen, 1958-1975.”

The inscribed words on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of “Here Rests in Honored Glory an American Soldier Known but to God” are an uplifting reminder that all those who died for the American cause should have a special place in our hearts as they do in God’s.  Anyone who visits the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which is guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year regardless of weather by special armed Tomb Guard sentinels cannot but be humbled and reminded of what Lincoln said at Gettysburg, “…that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Some U.S. military engagements were ill-advised and history shows that the instances of injustice were probably greater from actions taken by Washington politicians and bureaucrats than by the military in the field.  For instance, the government’s willingness to authorize and deploy American soldiers in Vietnam without clear objectives and a strategy for victory — which put American lives in harm’s way and cost 58,220 lives — was the great injustice of the Vietnam War.  In Iraq, President Obama’s political decision to withdraw almost all U.S. military forces by the end of 2011 directly led to the injustice of reversal of hard-fought gains made by the military in the prior eight years, and the rise of ISIS and growing Iranian influence in Iraq.

Over a million Americans have given their lives in the Civil War and in defending U.S. interests in conflicts large and small. And while remembering those people is a central purpose of this holiday, Memorial Day takes on its deepest meaning when we connect it with our roots.

Americans were unique in sacrificing their treasure and giving their lives to found the first country in history establishing that all people have natural rights that come from God rather than from rulers or government. The Declaration of Independence affirmed the equality of all people and that they were endowed with unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Thus, when Americans sacrificed their lives in military service, we should remember that it was not just to defend the United States, but it was also to uphold the natural rights and spiritual values associated with the nation’s founding that provide inspiration for others worldwide.

There were times and places in human history when there were nation states of cultural achievement, virtue, and efflorescence, such as in Periclean Athens, in the Florence of the Medicis, and in England of Elizabeth and Shakespeare.  But none were founded the way America was — that is, by a collection of the nation’s most learned statesmen, well-versed in classics of law and political philosophy, who prayerfully approached drafting the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and then the U.S. Constitution in 1787.  The Constitution provided a charter for an unprecedented arrangement of governmental institutions that would provide effective government while mitigating corruption and abuse of power and also protecting the citizens’ unalienable God-given rights.  The Bill of Rights, an integral part of the Constitution, enabled people living in America to rise to levels closer to the divine image in which all were created than they would have under any government previously conceived.

Writing about the benefits of the Constitution, Thomas Jefferson stated, “We feel that we are acting under obligations not confined to the limits of our own society. It is impossible not to be sensible that we are acting for all mankind.”  In only two centuries since that time, almost every nation has come to accept the need and value of having a constitution, regardless of differences of culture, history, and legal heritage.  Most of the world’s constitutions have been written in the last 75 years.  As constitutions get drafted and revised, the Constitution of the United States continues to be the guiding template and a source of inspiration and principles.

Yet another aspect of celebrating Memorial Day is recognizing the example set by Americans in how they treated their vanquished foes.

The respect that General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers (SCAP), and the occupying American forces displayed after Japan’s surrender astonished and won over many of the Japanese people.  They had assumed the victorious Americans would execute their beloved emperor and plunder and treat them in ways similar to what Japanese soldiers did to those they had conquered in China, Korea and Southeast Asia.

One of the big changes that General MacArthur oversaw required the postwar Japanese government to initiate the drafting of a new constitution.  Wisely and in the interest of cultural respect and continuity, MacArthur suggested that the Japanese exercise the provision in the country’s existing Meiji constitution to amend that document with four requirements revolving around democratic rule, judicial review, and disarmament.  After a number of revisions, the new constitution that was accepted created a government closer the British-style of parliamentary government than the American system.

In addition to overseeing the rewriting of the Japanese constitution,  MacArthur also required that new laws and mandates be enacted to bring about land reform — so as to broaden private property ownership; and to break up and restructure business conglomerates — known as the Zaibatsu — to provide more competition, fairness, and opportunity.

What was remarkable about the U.S. defeat and reorganization of  Japan was that American actions were conducted in such a way that helped the Japanese to become a more formidable economic competitor at America’s own expense, but that also brought about respect and friendship between the two countries that has remained ever since.

In Europe after armistice, the war-indebted United States launched the Marshall Plan that gave some $135 billion of grant aid in current dollar value that helped reconstruct war-devastated regions in Western Europe.  Eighteen countries received aid and initiatives largely targeted the rebuilding of the industrial base. And similar to our help to the Japanese, U.S. generosity gave Europeans a leg up on the U.S. with the building of state-of-the-art factories and facilities that were in many cases more efficient than what then existed in the U.S.

In sum, Memorial Day means more than remembering and honoring those who died in military service to the country. It means connecting with a heritage that began with a courageous and faithful group of founders, who risked their lives for the birth of freedom and the establishment of America as a “city on a hill.” It also means remembering all who subsequently died for their nation and its constitutionally protected freedoms. And finally it commemorates those who paid the most, such as those who died in the Civil War, and “the greatest generation” involved in World War II, who — after experiencing the loss of so many lives to assure victory for the Allied nations — then sacrificed more to rebuild and preserve the independence of its former enemies.  Memorial Day reminds us that in all of human history, America is indeed unique and remarkable.

#YouAintBlack and #JoeBidenIsARacist both became national trending hashtags on Twitter in the wake of the presumptive Democrat nominee’s disastrous interview on The Breakfast Club, in which he said blacks who consider supporting Donald Trump “ain’t black.”

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or for Donald Trump, then you ain’t black,” said Biden, in response to one of the radio show host’s questions.

The racist remark from the Democrat presidential candidate generated a tidal wave of outrage on social media, which is still ongoing.
