Obama's Legacy

No person has done more to foment racial hatred in America than the fool who is its current president.

Here is the result.

Five police officers have been killed and others have been wounded after at least two snipers opened fire on them during a protest march in Dallas. Another suspect is exchanging gunfire with police, and he claims to have spread bombs in a second-floor garage where he is holed up.

Obama and his counterpart in UK, Cameron, are traitors to their own countries.

In different ways they speak and act To protect and nurture Islam
A curse on them both. Obama be cursed for his part in the Islamisation and terror of USA, and wilful destruction of Western values.
Cameron for his devious campaign, to continue the Empire's sovereignty over Britain.

Anonymous said... have come out with some doozies in your time but nothing quite so ignorant or stupid as this.

The US is 52 countries with their own police forces own laws and own parliaments tied together with federal laws that have nothing to do with the everyday life of it's citizens apart from defence, taxes etc.

So you expect Obama to micro manage over 200 police forces now!!!! Or is the fact that he is black a reason for mass shootings bearing in mind out of all the recent incumbents he has done more to try and limit the sales of assault rifles than any one else....he may well succeed now. I just looked at your post on the loss of the Egyptair plane some time ago. You just can't wait to blame your favourite people instead of waiting for facts.

I don't indulge in personnel abuse but as your xenophobia and outright racism is getting up my port nostril I may well crack under the strain.

In the US first response when an officer feels himself or his associates are threatened is to shoot. Not surprising in a country where many in many states anyone can carry a concealed weapon.

Interesting comparison with here where nearly all cases of police shootings have been justifiable.

Philando Castile, murdered by police because he had a broken tail light.

Castile reached for his driver’s license, after reportedly letting an officer know he had a legal gun. (Castile had a concealed carry permit, according to family.) An officer then allegedly opened fire.

"I told him not to reach for it," an officer claimed in the Facebook video. "I told him to get his hand out."

"You told him to get his ID, sir — his driver’s license," Reynolds said. "Oh, my God. Please don’t tell me he’s dead. Please don’t tell me my boyfriend just went like that."

Alton Sterling, murdered by police for selling CDs.

In his last few seconds of life, Alton Sterling seemed completely immobile. Two Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officers had pinned him to the floor, flat on his back. But even as Sterling seemed completely unable to move, one of the police officers yelled, "He’s got a gun!" Within seconds, an officer shot Sterling, who was still pinned to the ground by the cops. Sterling died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to an autopsy.

Tamir Rice, murdered by police for playing with a toy gun. The officer who murdered him opened fire within seconds of arriving.

And some fool with a keyboard thinks its all Obama's fault.

Black Americans are 5 times more likely to be stopped and searched for drugs than white Americans, even though the useage rate is the same and white Americans deal more drugs than blacks.

Now, none of this is meant to diminish yesterday's horror in Dallas, that was a crime every bit as bad as the ones I have listed above. Each of those now dead people was a human, with family, friends, hopes and aspirations that have been cut short by the actions of another. Not one of them was doing anything that warranted a death sentence.

But never fear, while those of us on the left mourn this waste, the Right gloat. And not just Adolf, but others who should know better. Like Joe Walsh, a one term Tea Party Rethuglican who tweeted This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you. The hatred is strong in this one.

Adolf, here's another attempt to educate you.

NZ rules of engagement vs US highlighted in the last sentence.

"Police have their firearms instructions, known as the F061, drummed into them over and over. They are written on the inside cover of police-issue notebooks. Pocket-sized laminated cards with the same information are stored with weapons in gun safes and vehicles. Police can use a firearm in the following circumstances:

* To defend themselves or others if they fear death or grievous bodily harm and they cannot reasonably protect themselves or others in a less violent manner.

* To arrest an offender if they believe the offender poses a threat of death or grievous bodily harm in resisting their arrest and the arrest cannot be reasonably effected in a less violent manner and cannot be delayed without danger to others.

* To prevent the escape of an offender if that person poses a threat of death or grievous bodily harm to others and the offender takes flight to avoid arrest.

An offender is not to be shot until they have first been called on to surrender, unless in circumstances that it is impracticable and unsafe to do so.

The officer is shown during that action with his weapon drawn.

Rules of engagement for Dallas police
"E. Drawing or Displaying Firearms - Officers may draw or display firearms when there is a threat or reasonable belief that there is a threat to life or they have a reasonable fear for their own safety and/or the safety of others."

Going to be an interesting court battle.
