Brooklyn Neighborhood Is
´A Powder Keg´ After
Teen Killed By Police

Business Insider, by Michael Kelley

Original Article

Posted By:JackBurton, 3/16/2013 1:06:27 PM

Hostility has been mounting this week in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, after two plainclothes police officers fatally shot 16-year-old Kimani Gray after he allegedly pointed a revolver at them on Saturday night. On Monday a group of about 130 people were marching toward the 67th Police Precinct station when about two dozen young protesters splintered off — drawing riot police — and trashed a Rite Aid. Tuesday the crowd was mostly calm, but on Wednesday — the same day Gray´s autopsy showed he had been shot seven times ...

This seems like it should be a big story... and typical... but I see zero coverage. Why?

Because it´s a democrat controlled city, with a democrat mayor (no matter what he calls himself), in a democrat controlled state, with a democrat governor and the people causing the problem are a democrat protected class.

Nothing about it advances the democrat narrative or agenda sooo....

Nothing to see here MSMwise.

most curious quote from the article
"informal crews of armed teenagers"

translation: "gangbangers"

I guess the politically correct term for violent armed gangs is now:"informal crews of armed teenagers"

we´re doomed. the press is an active part of the problems now. they characterize the gangs in an angelic manner (next, we will be hearing that young Kimani was in the choir and was planning on going to Harvard on scholarship), and the police are characterized as racists.

Media coverage of such lawless mob behavior always contains the implied subtext -which frequently more than implied and a subtext- that vandalism and other antisocial behaviors are perfectly understandable and legitimate responses to police shootings. What other choice do teenagers(?) have but to riot and rampage and destroy property? Who could expect them to behave any differently? This soft bigotry of low expectations is racism pure and simple. Nobody expects white teenagers to act like this, regardless of alleged provocations. Only blacks are expected to run riot, loot businesses, attack strangers and cause general mayhem when they are feeling aggrieved or victimized. Well - not only blacks. Muslims, too. It seems that the same bigotry white liberals exhibit toward blacks is applied to Muslims - at least to foreign Muslims. Any time members of either group come up against something they do not like, regard as unfair, or think is insulting or blasphemous, white liberals think it is the most natural thing in the world for them to mob up and begin to wreck, burn and destroy everything and everyone in sight. It is only natural for "people like that" to behave that way.

I think it will receive tremendous attention once this hits the airwaves --

A pair of New York City police officers responsible for killing a Brooklyn teen last weekend have been named in five federal lawsuits on allegations ranging from illegal stop and frisks to physical abuse. According to court records settlements resulting from suits against Sgt. Mourad Mourad and Officer Jovaniel Cordova have cost the city $215,000.

All the usual suspects should be landing soon. Maybe Eric too.

Remember the pharmacist a couple years ago who got charged with shooting a robber too many times? This is a new benchmark for these people.you should only be allowed to shoot them to disable them.

People that sit around on their couches all the time don´t grasp that cops are human too and in a flight or fight situation,they do over react sometimes but it´s to make sure of self preservation. A lot of these cops have probably seen hopped up thugs on drugs or booze be invincible no matter how many times they´re shot,this is what happened in Rodney King. Seriously,tasers bounce off these people like feathers.

This whole country is a power keg situation where some trigger point could set everybody off.I think Obama winning the reelection was out of the fear of riots.

"informal crews of armed teenagers"

legal age for owning a gun is 21 years in NYC.

those informal crews (AKA gangbangers) are guilty of multiple criminal offenses, starting with illegal possession of a firearm, next you can bet those firearms are not themselves legally obtained or registered...

the article calls them "informal crews", "young protesters", "young men", "kids", "teenagers", never once are they described as gangs, thugs, or criminals.

what next? Freedom-fighter?

NYPD [any city´s PD] has lost the chance to control such rioting when they fail to bring out the shotguns when it´s first clear they´re needed. This isn´t simple property crime and/or assault on the police.

#3 offers his usual good post.

#4: Thanks for that info. Is police brutality real? Sure. Are there lying accusers and corrupt lawyers suing the police? Count on it. Bet the rent money on it. The constraints on police are ever-tighter [less realistic? hmmm] and the license granted [lack of accountability; excuse-making by others] to such criminals, make me think that at least some of these "settlements" pay-offs to make the lawsuits go away, not evidence that all such suits have merit.

The idiot Mayor is concerned about counting the intake calories but the cops who take infinitely more risks than gaining a few ounces on their shift are more concerned with the problem of ingesting lead from street punks that point guns at them...I suppose now the media idiots will reclassify the pistol the cops used to put this punk down as an ´assault´ pistol that probably and illegally had more than the prescribed number of bullets allowed by law... what a joke! If it took 20 bullets to put this lawbreaking stupid jerk down then 20 is the correct number. Do you think for a second that the cops are going to stop shooting because somebody counted up to 10??? Would you if this punk aimed a weapon at you???

Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming. After taking a closer look at the paper, investigative journalists report the authors’ claims of a 97-pecent consensus relied on the authors misclassifying the papers of some of the world’s most prominent global warming skeptics. At the same time, the authors deliberately presented a meaningless survey question so they could twist the responses...

Williamsport, Pa. - A constant, mild hiss. That was my chief observation when I returned to Anadarko Petroleum’s Landon Pad A, a natural-gas site in Lycoming County, Pa.

Food stamp cuts create high

Food banks across the country, stretched thin in the aftermath of the recession, are bracing for more people coming through their doors in the wake of cuts to the federal food stamp program. Food stamp benefits to 47 million Americans were cut starting Friday as a temporary boost to the federal program comes to an end without new funding from a deadlocked Congress. Under the program, known formally as the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program, or SNAP, a family of four that gets $668 per month in benefits will find that amount cut by $36.

Farmers can now produce more crops in an environmentally sustainable way at a lower cost thanks to the efforts of hundreds of scientists over the past half-century. Seeds are developed in a laboratory and then field tested to enhance nutritional value or resistance to drought, disease and herbicides. Genetically modified crops are now planted on nearly a quarter of the world´s farm land by some 17.3 million farmers. More than 90% of those farmers are smallholders who harvest a few acres in developing countries.
