response to pool party police state cheerleaders

i don't know why i bother

i don’t know why i bother

i don’t feel inclined to engage with you at all, since you seem to believe that police have the right to teach a child a lesson by using violence against that child

you know NOTHING of what that child’s parents taught her . she wasn’t committing a crime, and quite apparently knows her constitutional rights include not being subject to the demands of police when she’s not committing a crime

police are not that child’s daddy, and have no authority to ‘teach her a lesson in respect’

police have no authority over us without being able to show probable cause to ticket a driver or otherwise make an arrest or keep us away from imminent danger . they have the right to inquire whether we’re willing to talk with them, not force us to stay and talk with them . my children were taught to not talk with police, at all

if casebolt wanted to teach a lesson in a legal manner, he could’ve RESPECTFULLY asked if any of the kids were willing to talk to him about what had occurred . another officer was doing exactly that and having perfect success . in fact, casebolt assaulted the kids who were voluntarily talking with the other officer

that girl showed the courage to have self-respect … to stand her ground (while she was attempting to get a ride home, and possibly afraid to leave her innocent friends in custody of a lunatic cop) … to know that she is not a subject in the kingdom of casebolt, nor a subject in a police state . she had the courage to tell that cop that he was wrong . many of the kids showed that same courage

casebolt didn’t exhibit a shred of courage

you sound like the type of person who doesn’t have that courage, and would stand back and allow a cop to beat someone just because the one delivering the beatdown is wearing a costume and carrying a badge . you insinuate that you are obedient . that’s your choice to be that, but you are not required, by law, to be obedient . also, you being obedient when you’re not legally obligated to be so only feeds the illusion to police that we agree to allow them to lord it over us . they only have that power if we give it to ‘em

why would you want to do such a thing?

let me clue you in : there is a reason plenty of towns are going broke paying out lawsuits for police brutality . this is one more chance for you to learn that it has to do with the law and our rights being violated by police . tens of millions of dollars go to police brutality ‘settlements’ in my town . that’s tens of millions of dollars on top of the more than quarter of the city budget being paid to police in the first place . this is not a problem in only my town . it’s a problem across the board from coast to coast, canada to mexico

and fyi, i’ve repeatedly had my rights violated by police, was not convicted of any crimes from those incidents, and i’m an old half greek pale skinned woman

so … your wrong assumption makes your conclusions wrong . i don’t use my race as a scapegoat (and that sentence of yours makes no sense whatsoever)

who brought race into this? the two grown women and ‘security’ man who were yelling racial epithets, or the kids? one of the grown men who was part of this has a record for mutilating and murdering animals . seriously . is that who those kids should obey?

another clue : calling out racism isn’t a racist act . racism is real . these three white supremacist adults in this video … four, including casebolt, exhibited a stream of racist acts . they were practically a public service announcement giving the perfect examples of how to be racist . some of those acts were caught on film, some weren’t . some of those acts were illegal, and some were just ignorant and mean

this isn’t about your opinion or my opinion . there are definitions of words

racism is the systemic oppression of a group defined by their race, skin color, or ethnic heritage … by the group holding political, economic and physical power . in this country, only white people hold that power over others

prejudice is the word to describe any person or group prejudging another based upon any number of variables

it’s true that i hold prejudice against police as an institution, and against racist fucks and individual criminal cops and police state cheerleaders

it is racist to yell racial slurs . that’s just the way language works . that sentence is a true statement . it’s child abuse to yell racial slurs at children . based upon testimony from multiple people . that occurred and it was a racist act . when an older teen, a very young adult, stepped in to try to get the racist rant to stop, one of the women slapped her . this happened . it was a hate crime . she wouldn’t have called the children those names had they been white, and she likely would not have slapped a white person of the same age, though women like her are difficult to assess

then she called police to cover for herself . others also called police

if police had arrived during a fight, they would’ve been legally justified in breaking up the fight (without harming unarmed people in a tussle), and even handcuffing the three women who were fighting . they would have been justified in asking questions about what had occurred, but would not have the authority to make anyone answer … no authority to detain anyone who isn’t fighting when they arrive

nobody was fighting when police arrived

three grown white people who had lodged racist epithets then proceeded to point out kids they wanted to have illegally grabbed by police . they were, in effect, lying to police … which is a crime i had forgotten to notice ’til right now . they basically filed false police reports

regardless, police still had no legal authority to force compliance, as kids were leaving after being accused of ‘trespassing’ . one cannot be arrested for ‘trespassing’ if one isn’t on someone’s property with that person being the sole authority on who can stay … ie other residents of the neighborhood had invited the kids, giving that women no more authority than other residents to determine who could stay or who had to leave

if you were my roommate and i brought five people over for dinner, you couldn’t call the police and get them to evict my friends . that would be illegal for you to try, and more illegal for police to fulfill your request or demand

this situation is a very clear example of casebolt and the other adults making choices based upon the skin color of those they chose to attack . they made choices, and should be held accountable

they each should face a jury of their victims’ peers

   

profit is an invention

profit is an invention by capitalists

there is no such thing as profit

resources + labor = product

resources + well paid labor = expensive product

responsibly gleaned resources + well paid labor = cost prohibitive product

this is math . that is a correct mathematical equation . there is no such thing as profit . if resources have to be gleaned responsibly (no pollution, no illness/injury to workers), and laborers have to be fairly compensated, most corporations would be put out of business . capitalists would voluntarily quit rather than become destitute

israel is not a religious jewish state

israel is not a religious jewish state . israel operates as a terrorist organization, stealing land by brutal deadly force in direct conflict with the teachings of judaism, which describes a jewish homeland as a state of mind, and decries the use of force to steal lands . this is why many religious jews do not support the state of israel

the bible itself, far from being any true account of history, is a mythological tale of a mythological being … one who demanded sacrifices and worship …

basing any ownership or stewardship of land on the stories in a book of mythology is beyond ridiculous

most religious scholars acknowledge that there is no way to validate anything in religious books as ‘fact’

most thinking religious people acknowledge that religion is all about faith, and that their books are written as parables, not as factual history books

most thinking non-religious people recognize religion as the opiate of the masses, created by men in power to keep themselves in power

so … back to facts :::

since the creation of the state of israel, the invaders from around the world met with resistance because people were already living on these lands … or traveling through these lands … using the ‘resources’ as they saw fit

u.s. desire for control over ‘resources’ not owned by the u.s. led the u.s. to financially support the invasion in the region, to provide access to and control over the region’s resources

while many jewish people did, indeed, hope to create a peaceful and longstanding physical home for all jewish people, they did not take into account the fact that doing so would mean taking, by force, land being already lived upon by others … arabs … palestinians … they also didn’t likely realize the willingness of power brokers to be brutal toward their neighbors, and continue for decades implementing an expansionist ideology, without concern for those who would be consumed, ie murdered, to give way for israel’s massive occupation of more and more lands over the decades

in the early agreements, contrary to claims by many zionists of today, the invading zionists formally acknowledged palestine and it’s right to exist there

today, plenty of zionists try to pretend (or are ignorant of history and actually believe) that palestine was never acknowledged and didn’t exist . based upon palestine not being a ‘formal state or country’ … they say it isn’t real

apparently, in their tiny minds, this means that palestinians aren’t real, either, so committing mass murder against them is inconsequential

the wars which occurred against israel in it’s early years were wars for the preservation of rights of pre-existing residents of the lands israel sought to occupy

all acts of violence being committed against israel now are self-defense efforts in the face of ongoing human rights violations, land invasions, home bulldozing, destruction of orchards, ‘jewish settlements’ in the palestinian west bank … by the invading israeli occupiers … supported by the criminal idf, supported, in turn, by criminal u.s. funding of israel

it is criminal for the u.s. to fund israel because israel is in possession of nuclear weapons and not in compliance with non-proliferation treaties

it is immoral for the u.s. to fund israel because israel is a bully and a criminal . but then, the u.s. is also a bully and a criminal

all posturing against iran is coming directly from israel, which wants to remain the only nuclear weapons wielding power in the region, and uses false claims of iran’s imaginary nuclear weapons building activities to excuse their calls for complete takeover of iran by way of war

while the u.s. pretends to be against nuclear weapons, against genocide, against apartheid, and against human rights violations … the u.s. calls israel an ‘ally’ because israel pretends to offer access to cheap ‘resources’ in the region . in reality, the cost of those ‘resources’, when one includes the well over 3 billion in u.s. spending on israel per year adding up to over a trillion dollars since the 1970s … is coming directly out of the mouths of hungry children and ailing elders in the u.s. … and well outweighs any value of said resources

i in no way support draconian religious beliefs and oppressive religious rule in any form . this means i do not support the catholic church, muslim extremists, christian extremists . i do not support religious or non-religious excuses for occupying people’s lands, destroying their homes (as israel is doing to palestinians and as the u.s. did to iraq) … and committing crimes against humanity (or any other life or the planet)

i do not support the use of chemical weapons
i do not support suicide bombings, nor do i support drone bombings, sniper murders, or any other aggressive use of force against peaceful people

i DO support self-defense by any means necessary

this means that i believe that the people of every region, nation, town, and family should be armed against tyranny, and should be trained in physical self-defense
