Micah Xaiver Johnson was a damned good shot.  
So was John Allen Muhammad.   How many more like 
them are out there?
White Americans need to get their collective head out of their 
collective ass and stop their cops from butchering unarmed people 

        

Accuracy International Super Magnum L115A1 w/ silencer

There is one point re: the tragedy in Dallas that is absolutely taboo, and so I'm going to jump right in here with it: This guy Micah Xavier Johnson, if he really took down all those cops by himself, was an incredibly competent sharpshooter, well trained by the Army to kill targets at a distance. If the guy had had a silencer, today he would likely be planning his next project and cops all across the country would be pooping themselves. Recall the havoc John Allen Muhammad, the "beltway sniper" caused in 2002. He was also black, pissed off, and trained in the Army.

In 2015 American cops killed about 300 unarmed people -- about 6 per week. About a third of them were blacks, but only 15% of the population is black. Of course, of these 6 killings per week, we only hear about the ones that were video'd, which is only a tiny, tiny fraction of the entire carnage. But even then, although a third of unarmed people killed by cops  (UPKC) are blacks, it seems that videos of black UPKCs predominate on the web and MSM. I mean, we should be seeing 2x more vids of white UPKCs than black ones, but I know that's not the case.  I wonder why the blacks are so much more adept at getting the deadly and incriminating vids out to the public -- the best example of all being the live-stream of Philandro Castile.

But in spite of this ongoing and growing annual UPKC body count, which seems to be mostly OK with white folks, I'm going to state a radical proposition: No unarmed person of any color should ever be killed by cops, and "cops" includes prison screws. And I mean never, under any circumstance. Zero tolerance. The cops have more than sufficient non-lethal means at their disposal to apprehend unarmed suspects or inmates without killing them. There should be federal anti-killer-cop laws that require the local US Atty to automatically seek a federal indictment in every case in which a civilian dies at the hands of cops. Any defenses the cop may have would be assessed by the grand jury and petit jury instead of the law enforcement machinery, which always has a conflict in such cases. 

In comparison to cops killing unarmed civilians on almost a daily basis, according to FBI stats, only about 3 dozen cops "feloniously die" in the line of duty each year -- that's about half the number of taxi drivers killed on the job. Source So we're talking a kill-ratio of UPKCs to dead cops of something like 8:1. If that ratio were reversed, it would be 40 cops feloniously killed per year and 3 unarmed civilians killed by cops.  That is a lot closer to what it should be.

One of the reasons for the current grossly disproportionate ratio is that US cops have been importing Yisraeli  apartheid policing tactics since 9/11, which means shoot on the least provocation, and shoot only to kill. The connection between current American cop tactics, UPKCs, and Yisrael has been well documented by Muriel Kane (Raw Story), Max Blumenthal (The Exiled), and Kristian Davis Bailey (Ebony).

The Government of Yisrael (GoY) plays so rough because it is trying to cleanse Palestine of Palestinians. The deadly tactics are GoY policy meant to encourage the Palestinians to flee. In contrast, I don't think there is any evidence of coordinated racial cleansing in America. I mean nobody thinks the blacks are going to flee America.  A black American, on average, can trace his or her lineage in America farther back than the white American, on average. Blacks are more American than whites are. On a seniority basis, America belongs more to blacks than to whites.  And, unlike Palestinians, black Americans are armed. And so in spite of the cops employing GoY tactics, black Americans and those in their corner have the potential to adjust that 8:1 kill-ratio downwards or reverse it. 

I can only see two possible ways to do that: #1) Retaliatory killing of cops to bring the cop-side of the ratio up, or #2) Policy, statutory, and judicial changes in ensure killer cops are convicted and locked-up for good or executed to bring the UPKC side of the ratio down. 

One is extra-judicial payback, the other judicial payback  Either way, payback for the past is deterrence for the future (tm), and the future is what this post is about. 

But we all know by now that the judicial solution ain't going to happen -- not with police unions and the silent blue line obstructing justice.  Not with the subjective "but I was scared" defense, and the phony American patriotism that supports cops regardless of how extreme their psychopathology. 

America has been here before, with blacks being gunned down in large numbers by cops who get off without penalty, and I'm thinking the "Red Summer" of 1919 and the Tulsa massacre of 1921. But back then there were no well trained, heavily armed blacks to extract extra-judicial payback when the courts failed. There was no internet to broadcast videos across the country within minutes of the murders, or, now, live-streaming these killer cops in action. Things have changed, as we have seen in Dallas.
 
All of this suggests to me that if the politicians, the prosecutors, the judges, don't get their shit together soon and start holding cops accountable, a lot more people are going to reach the breaking point like Johnson did. Maybe in the long run that will save lives, once the cops realize that blacks and other fair-minded people are not going to tolerate cops gunning down unarmed people anymore.  

Conversely, maybe a violent push-back against cop-violence will lead to a total police state -- and I note here how the USG is arming NOAA, IRS, FDA, EPA and many other non-defense/non-security agencies with billions of dollars worth of automatic weapons and hollow-point ammo so that the number of armed agency employees now exceeds the number of armed US Marines. 

Yep, it's getting to be a scary place for white America. It always has been for blacks. Maybe it's time for the white middle class to get its apathetic head out of its collective ass and exert its political power for what is right for  a change in hopes of averting more tragedies .

Here are some stats I base this opinion on Source :

Only 10 of the 102 cases in 2015 where an unarmed black person was killed by police resulted in officer(s) being charged with a crime, and only 2 of these deaths (Matthew Ajibade and Eric Harris) resulted in convictions of officers involved. Only 1 of 2 officers convicted for their involvement in Matthew Ajibade's death received jail time. He was sentenced to 1 year in jail and allowed to serve this time exclusively on weekends. Deputy Bates, who killed Eric Harris, will be sentenced May 31. [N.B. Bates was not an actual cop; he was an insurance exec who paid to play cop in Tulsa. He got 4 years for manslaughter.]
