We could try better training. We could make it a dischargeable offense without retirement benefits to fail to employ a video camera. We could disconnect the "justice" system form the private prison system and remove the profit motive from the market for slave labor. We could lift the ceiling on IQ for hiring cops (can't have cops asking questions or questioning the system.) Would do with fewer white nationalists and assorted nazis in police uniform. there are plenty of things we could do.


When you fire off "people with property do, or say thus and so " then it's perfectly fair to hear back "socialist liberals always blame the cops".

I know the problem set, and I understand there might be some improvements made. I'm just skeptical and cynical. And not willing to the always blame the cops 100%.

Cops scare me. I can only imagine what black people go through. I'm not saying they aren't oppressed. But it's a complex problem.

I also own property. So does RE.

I don't own any property other than portable stuff.  No land, no McHovel, nada.  My property ownership amounts to some old used carz and my vast array of SHTF Day Preps.  I can get all of it onto about 8 pallets to ship out of here, although I doubt I would take it all.  I would sell off my SUV and buy an enclosed trailer for SaVANnah to GTFO of Dodge here.  Road trip on the Al-Can!  :icon_sunny:

Well just about everyone owns SOME property, unless you run around naked.  Clothes are property.  Boots were highly prized property at one time and would be removed from the corpse as a nice prize.

I don't deny the ownership of some forms of "property".  If you can move it with you, you can own it IMHO.  The type of property ownership I deny as valid is ownership of the land and fixed housing.  AKA, Farms, McMansions etc.  Once you accept this type of ownership as valid, you divide the population into the "haves" and "have nots".  Ownership of Property is what the whole setup of the FSoA was about from the very beginning.  Property holders had RIGHTS.  Everyone else was SOL.

Financial assets like stocks and bonds and cash are property too.

When you head out to the Big Potlatch In The Sky, Surly and I are gonna monetize this thing and make some real cash. We're just biding our time.

(And if you believe that, could I interest you in a nice waterfront bungalow on the banks of the Cape Fear River?.)

If you monetize and sell the Diner, maybe you could buy a nice Rowboat for a Seastead!  :icon_sunny:

I think that assessment is overly optimistic. Maybe e more like it:

I'm not sure I have much to add to this thread.

Somehow, per usual, I agree with both Eddie and Surly.  I'm not sure how that makes any sense.  I just see both sides and agree with them both.  It's like you guys are arguing just to be arguing. 

Cops do belong to a subculture as do medics, soldiers, truckers, techie geeks, musician, artists...what we do defines our outer purpose to a large degree.  Subcultures are themselves made up of a diverse group of all types of people with all types of past experiences which inform their opinions on the various sizes and shapes of but holes.  Which, by the way, all buttholes are the same color.

My points is that we are all people.  Whites have been mostly in charge historically, at least in the Western world.  White privilage is a real thing, but go to a white trailer park and tell them about that...see what they say.  It's hard just being human in this world.  It cost money to live.  What are we to do about the past injustices done to blacks and other minorities?  Does Jesus need to come back and be crucified again so that whites can go about thier lives without some sense of guilt for the past?  I've not once been racist in my life.  I might have dropped an N bomb a time or two, but I've cussed a cracka ass cracka just the same.  I just don't like stupid people much. 

What to do about race problems?  Grow up.  Grow up and see people as people.  Problem is that people are clanish and jingoistic.  They are nationalists and exclusionary.  They are affraid of the other and affraid of change.  But mostly they are simply affriad to be wrong.  Everybody wants to be right.  Everybody wants to believe that what they think and believe and do is correct.  Everybody can't be correct because there is right and there is wrong.  I'm not speaking of just morals either.  Morals and ethics can be debated.  There is a growing group of people thorughout they world now that believes that the Earth is flat.  They call themselves "flat earthers."  WTF?  They think they are right.  They are not right.  The Earth is round. 

Racists are not right.  They are hateful and stoopid.  Racists cops exists as do psychopathic killer nurses and a growing class of nut job gunmen .  Our world gone done and got itself in a mighty fine mess. 

I don't know...my stance has always been that I'm human, and so is everybody else.  Well except for the lizard illuminati.  They are overlords who drink human blood and eat people to stay in power.  Damn lizard illuminati...I bet they are responsible for racism!
