Pants up, Don't Loot!


The most scurrilous symbol or slogan of the recent Ferguson riots was the made up phrase, “Hands up, Don't shoot”. It was coined by the “racial hustlers” to incite and motivate the black citizens of Ferguson (and to many outside agitators) to get them all riled up about the false presumption that the police are going out of their way to kill innocent black children and black men for no good reason. Most of the rioters who were committing mayhem in Ferguson were young black teens and young black adults, who were looting and setting businesses on fire, so the slogan really should be:

“Pants Up, Don't Loot”

The facts of the case about the supposed “execution” of an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown, by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, were totally made up out of whole cloth by the “racial arsonists” led by Al Sharpton and his band of race baiters. Yes, there have been incidents when police have encountered and shot black men, some of whom were unarmed as was Michael Brown in the Ferguson shooting, but that doesn't mean that the policemen, doing the shooting were reckless and, in some cases, guilty of using unnecessary deadly force on innocent black men. Most likely the confrontation was in response to a report of a crime being committed, and the policeman was responding to that call. In the vast majority of cases, the policeman was justified in using force, and sometimes deadly force, because the policeman or other citizens were in harms way, and it is the policeman's main job is to protect the community. This decision, on the part of the policeman to use force, sometimes is made in split seconds and it is difficult to second-guess his actions under those stressful conditions.

There is not an epidemic of policemen going around shooting black men just because they were black as the “racial arsonists” like Al Sharpton and his followers have implied in their hysterical rhetoric as they try to stir up racial animosity between blacks and whites. In fact, more policemen have been killed by blacks than the other way around, that's not to say that in certain isolated cases, the policeman over reacted and caused the death of an innocent black person, but that is the rare exception, not the rule and should not be used as a clarion call to cause looting and arson in the minority neighborhoods. That's like cutting off your nose to spite your face. The community of Ferguson will not be the same for many years to come.

The police have a greater presence in minority communities because the greater percentage of crime is committed in those communities (mainly by black men between the ages of 16 – 30). Most residents of those communities look favorably upon the presence of the police as they are the barrier between the bad guys and the law abiding citizens. It is the “rabble rousers”, like Sharpton, who shout police brutality whenever an unfortunate incident takes place and the media generally inflames the situation more by jumping to erroneous conclusions of fact before the facts are even revealed.

In the Ferguson case, the victim was the aggressor and by his actions toward the police officer, caused his own demise. The Grand Jury heard over 60 witnesses and read the results of three medical examiners, one who was hired by the Brown family, most all of whom pointed the finger at Michael Brown as the one who was responsible for his own death by his own behavior and belligerent actions toward the police officer.

It has been a sad state of affairs that people, who should know better, like the Congressional Black Caucus and others in the government, and the media are pouring gasoline on the fire of racial dissonance between whites and blacks by their inflammatory rhetoric. They have completely discounted the real facts that came out during the testimony before the grand jury. That is reckless behavior and could possibly gin up further mayhem around the country.

So stop with this phony slogan of “Hands up, Don't shoot” and replace it with “Pants up, Don't Loot”, as that makes more sense and it is less volatile.

Judge Jeanine Opening "Why don't you act like the President of the United States?" 
Not just the President for one group!



Judge Jeanine Pirro's opening from 12-6-2014 talks about the current race baiting events taking place with Ferguson Missouri and New York City protests. She also calls out President Obama to start acting like the President and not to just looking out for one group (African Americans).

Judge Jeanine calls out B. H. Obama on having the tax cheat Al Sharpton in meetings about the current affairs.

After witnessing the "orchestrated" spontaneous riots, vandalism, and arson by the "grievance goons", I wonder if the old phrase of cutting off your nose to spite your face doesn't apply here? The community of Ferguson will now reap the "benefits" of this lawless mob action by not having businesses to serve their needs now or into the future or if ever. What good came from this criminal behavior sanctioned by Al Sharpton and indirectly by both Obama and Holder? Shame on all, especially the feckless politicians.
