Most Southerners and American conservatives have supported the police in the recent unrest in Ferguson, MO and New York City.
Eric Garner, a morbidly obese black criminal, died after a violent confrontation with the police. All the evidence indicates the police acted properly. The grand jury exonerated the police officer who subdued Garner because his death was due to his poor health, not “racism” or police brutality. Unless 300 pound black men are highly paid professional sports stars, with teams of trainers and managers, these giants tend to lead very unhealthy, dangerous lives. When 300 pound black criminals with diabetes, heart disease, and severe asthma are resisting arrest, well, accidents happen.
It is tempting to fall in to the conservative trap of always supporting the police or accept the argument that only bad people have problems with the police or that anyone protesting police brutality or police misconduct must be a gang member, a permanently aggrieved minority activist, a communist, or a card carrying ACLU liberal.
The reality is that regular people like us also have problems with the police and problems with other parts of the government. With the Obama Justice Department headed by the likes of Eric “My People” Holder and the IRS persecuting “icky” Tea Party groups, they are targeting conservatives, Southern Nationalists, race realists or anyone who dares to say, write, or think anything politically incorrect.
Most policemen are good people and especially so in highly disciplined police forces like the NYPD. Unfortunately, there are many bad apples, bullies who become police officers because they enjoy bossing others around, and those who will take advantage of the rise in criminal anarchy to harass our people and violate our civil rights.
What to do? I highly recommend the instructional books and videos at: Flex Your Rights. The organization seems to be an offshoot of the ACLU, but seems to have mostly avoided the extreme leftwing, anti-White, anti-Christian programs of the ACLU. Instead, Flex Your Rights provides practical information on what to do (and not do) to survive hostile encounters with the police.
Here’s an excellent instructional video of three White college students with some marijuana in their car as they are stopped and abused by a police officer:
