Newly released figures covering 2016 that show arrests in terms of race reveal that black people still are vastly overrepresented in every crime category. Black Americans make up 13% of the population but they account for 52% of the arrests for murders. The total arrests of black people reached 2,263,112 in 2016 compared to 5,858,330 arrests of white people, who make up around 73% of the population. [Critics of these statistics will claim that the reason for this is that white cops discriminate against black people and arrest them in cases where white criminals would be let go. However, police who patrol black communities usually work in teams with at least one black officer present – and most of the crimes are committed by black criminals against black victims.] -GEG
While some blamed the mass shooting in Las Vegas on “white privilege,” new FBI crime statistics suggest that white people may not be the main source of the problem when it comes to violent crime.
And that’s putting it lightly.
Newly released figures covering 2016 that break down arrests in terms of race illustrate how black people are still vastly overrepresented in virtually every crime category.
Despite making up just 13% of the population, total arrests of black people reached 2,263,112 in 2016 compared to 5,858,330 arrests of white people, who make up around 73% of the population.
Black people are more likely than whites to be arrested for “Murder and non-negligent manslaughter” despite being a minority, with 52.6% of arrests in this category being of African-Americans.
“Of adults arrested for murder, 52.0 percent were Black or African American, 45.4 percent were White, and 2.6 percent were of other races,” reports the FBI.
Black people are also overrepresented in virtually every other category, including robbery, rape, aggravated assault, motor vehicle theft and prostitution and weapons violation.
Harris, in order to appeal to the radical left, came out in favor of free college education, the Green New Deal environmental program, universal healthcare and free healthcare for illegal immigrants. Biden’s deteriorating mental state makes it likely his VP could become president if Democrats win.
Incredible as it may sound, the politicians and the media are blaming the tragedy on the fact that the size of the party exceeded the limit during Covid lock down! Everyone in authority is playing this story with that spin.
Chicago PD reported 13 police officers were injured, and there was $60-million worth of property damage. Chicago Black Lives Matter says they will continue to “rouse up” until the Chicago Police Department is abolished.
Thirteen police officers were injured, and a security guard and a civilian also were struck by gunfire. The Mayor and Chief of Police responded with stern words against the rioters. [Now we shall see what their actions are.]
The police department’s $400 million budget was cut by about $3 million. Council member Kshama Sawant was the sole “no” vote because she felt the proposals didn’t go far enough. Riots broke out and Amazon, Whole Foods, and a Chase Bank were vandalized. Police Chief Carmen Best has resigned from her position.
A woman, 73, who uses a walker, was blocked and harassed when she tried to put out a fire in a trash barrel. She had made a BLM sign to show her support for the group but discovered the hard way that she was dealing with people who had the destruction of America as their goal, not racial justice.
It is possible that Trump may be the preferred candidate of the deep state because he will have far more support of the American people than Biden would when the President declares martial law. That IS the end game of the deep state. Look up the definition of ‘controlled opposition’ and read it twice.
Both the US Surgeon General and the CDC have flip-flopped on this issue but keep returning to the ‘wear-the-mask’ position, perhaps as a psychological measure to convince the sleeping public convinced that the pretended pandemic is real.
All of these actions are unconstitutional, because they are within the jurisdiction of Congress, not the President. However, the government will argue – and the courts will uphold – the idea that the Constitution is suspended in times of national emergency, which is in the power of the President to declare.
Teams now are stopping travelers arriving in the city by train, requiring them to complete a health-status form, and advising that they face fines as high as $10,000 for failing to quarantine. Officials say that the effort relies on voluntary compliance – for now.
In a vote-by-mail system, a large percentage of voters, who otherwise might go to the polls, would not be able to vote. No one knows for sure what will happen to those undeliverable ballots, and it is not paranoia to believe that many of them will be mailed in by unknown partisan activists.
The new law would permit some voters, namely the elderly and those with physical disabilities, to request that someone else fill out and hand in their ballot, a practice Republicans repeatedly decried as illegal “ballot harvesting.”
Columnist Seth Barron says the lawsuit is being used to blame the NRA for the massive 200% increase in shootings, instead of Democrat policies such as releasing prisoners, eliminating bail, restricted police power, and cutting the budget of law enforcement.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has given a broad range of powers to local councils theoretically to contain COVID outbreaks. Among those powers is the demolition of care facilities, businesses and private homes, cars, buses, trains, and airplanes.

A retired Washington DC detective, Rod Wheeler, investigated the murder of Seth Rich, a staffer at the Democratic National Committee, and concluded that he may have been killed because he released incriminating DNC emails to Wikileaks.
Car ‘smash and grabs’ are common in California because thieves know they will not be prosecuted. In San Francisco, police-commission rules forbid police to chase thieves if they try to escape in a car. This, they say, is to cut down on high-speed chases and, therefore, is justified because it reduces accidents.
