With exponentially higher abortion and murder rates throughout black communities than any other race, what right do blacks have to imply that anyone values their lives less than they do themselves? In some areas blacks abort more babies than are born and kill each other several times more than any other race. Blacks also murder other races at rate higher than other races murder them. Statistically, it wouldn’t be unfair to say that life in general appears to mean the least to blacks.I will link to his blog in my left sidebar. Other bloggers may wish to do the same.
On July 17, 2014, Eric Garner, an African American, died in the Tompkinsville neighborhood of Staten Island, New York, after a police officer put him in a chokehold, a tactic banned by the New York City Police Department (NYPD). Garner was initially approached by Officer Justin Damico on suspicion of selling “loosies”, single cigarettes from packs without tax stamps. After Garner expressed to the police that he was tired of being harassed and that he was not selling cigarettes, officers made the move to arrest Garner. Officer Daniel Pantaleo, also on scene, put his arms around the much taller Garner's neck, applying a headlock or chokehold shown in a widely viewed video recording of the event. Garner was pronounced dead approximately one hour later at the hospital.The chokehold may have been a major factor in Garner's death, but Garner was in bad health, and that contributed as well:
After the incident, city medical examiners concluded that Garner was killed by neck compression from the chokehold, along with “the compression of his chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police”. Contributing factors included bronchial asthma, heart disease, obesity, and hypertensive cardiovascular disease. Garner had health issues, including diabetes, sleep apnea and severe asthma.Eric Garner was no angel. He had a long record of criminality, most of which appears non-violent:
Garner had been previously arrested and was out on bail for selling untaxed cigarettes, driving without a license, marijuana possession and false personation. Garner had a criminal record that includes more than 30 arrests dating back to 1980 on charges such as assault, resisting arrest, grand larceny. An official said the charges include multiple incidents in which he was arrested for selling unlicensed cigarettes.Okay, so did Garner deserve the rough treatment that resulted in his death? I would have to say NO. His attempted arrest was for suspicion of a trivial crime. The cop who choked him should have seen that the obese and older Garner might have health issues that would endanger his life -- or so it seems to me. Rough arrests have resulted in deaths of suspects in other cases as well, either by taser or by ignoring serious medical conditions such as asthma or accidental asphyxiation.
Two questions, methinks, arise from Ferguson's latest outburst. The first, political, is "Why does the country tolerate it?" The second, more anthropologically interesting, is "Why the eerie incapacity of underclass blacks to understand evidence, or law, or much of anything?" Of the countless explanations given for the poor performance and poor behavior of blacks in the US, one of them dares not speak its name: Low intelligence.It seems that the lower average IQ of blacks also explains their low impulse control, their lack of empathy for their victims, their inability to foresee the likely consequences of their criminal behavior.

The facts are these: Collar had taken off his clothes and was running naked through the campus of the University of South Alabama. He was clearly irrational, under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs. When he arrived at the campus police station, he begin pounding on the outside windows. He then began walking towards Officer Austin, who had his gun drawn. When Collar was still several feet away, Austin shot him in the chest, killing him.

America's plans to fight Islamic State are in ruins as the militant group's fighters come close to capturing Kobani and have inflicted a heavy defeat on the Iraqi army west of Baghdad. The US-led air attacks launched against Islamic State (also known as Isis) on 8 August in Iraq and 23 September in Syria have not worked. President Obama's plan to "degrade and destroy" Islamic State has not even begun to achieve success. In both Syria and Iraq, Isis is expanding its control rather than contracting.Obama's reign has shown a spotlight on a profound truth: liberal policies are miserable failures when applied to either the economy or foreign policy. They don't work. They never work. They make things worse.
