A little more than a year ago a mob of Philadelphia police beat three men whom they suspected of committing a shooting. The grand jury investigation of this incident was released yesterday. The grand jury, of course, found that the police acted appropriately.
Ironic, that. After all, in the days after the beating, police commissioner Charles Ramsey fired several of the officers. A cop thought some of his own deserved to be fired, but a grand jury finds that they acted appropriately. Something is fishy here. For his part, Ramsey is standing by his original decision, and good for him. Also interesting is the fact that one of the suspects was hit or stepped on in the head after he was handcuffed. I guess the “heroes” with the night sticks were still afraid of him.
The Fraternal Disorder of Police, as you might guess, in light of this verdict, is trying to get all the fired officers re-instated and compensated for all their lost pay. This sinister organization combines the folly of labor unions with the diabolical love of violence. They are also campaigning against local Judge Craig Washington because at one time or another this year he refused to do the bidding of the Blue Wall of Thugs.
The government schools, have, of course, done their part in all of this in order to make useful idiots for the “justice” system’s juries. No one is taught to ask any fundamental questions, and people sure as hell don’t know about jury nullification (which would not, admittedly, obtain in this case).
There is another issue here, one which I hesitate to mention: race. But in this case, it would seem to be worth mentioning. What was the racial composition of the grand jury? What exactly were the racial makeups of the police squad and the suspects on the night of the beating? Philadelphia has an appalling amount of racial tension—just the other day a city worker filed suit alleging that the bathrooms in his facility are segregated—and I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that it was a factor in this case. I do think that race can be overstated, but I’m not stupid enough to think that it has no impact whatsoever.
There are signs that various members of the booboisie have hung in their windows and on their cars in this city which say, “I support the Philadelphia Police.” These poor people don’t realize that the police are not their friends, that they will harass them, too, the first chance they get. For my part, I support peace and non-violence and cooperation; how then could I possibly support the police?
