It's 1955: Philadelphia Police Union Head Defends Nazi Cop, Calls BLM a ‘Pack of Rabid Animals’

source

For any significant change to American policing to occur, we have to deal with upend police unions, which wield extraordinary power and influence.

Most times police unions support their officers unconditionally, even when it’s more than obvious that police are in the wrong; they also tend to disparage victims of police brutality, as well as a plethora of other deplorable acts.

Last September, for instance, the president of the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police, John McNesby, called one of his officer’s Nazi tattoos “not a big deal.”

And at a “Back the Blue” rally last week to protest Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney’s new policy of releasing the names of officers who shoot anyone while on duty, McNesby showed his support of an officer who fatally shot a 20-year-old black man in the back, calling those who protested that killing “a pack of rabid animals.”

HuffPost Black Voices reports that the officer in that case, Ryan Pownall, fatally shot David Jones, who ran from a traffic stop on June 8. This marks the second time Pownall has shot a black man in the back as he was fleeing. In 2010, he shot Carnell Williams-Carney who ran from cops while having an illegal gun on him.



Williams-Carney is now paralyzed. Jones is dead.



After some Black Lives Matter activists exercised their first amendment right to protest the continued employment of an obviously poorly trained cop at best, McNesby continued to rally behind him.

On Thursday, McNesby called Black Lives Matter protesters “animals.” As those who study the importance of language know, designating others subhuman is the first step in having no remorse for cutting them down in cold blood.

“When you go to work each day, you shouldn’t have to worry that a pack of rabid animals will suddenly show up at your home and openly threaten your family,” said McNesby. “These are not activists, they are racist hate groups determined to instigate violence.”

Oh, and about that officer who had the Nazi tattoo—obviously not an animal in McNesby’s mind.

As a side note to this, I had a friend of almost 20 years defriend me then rail on me through FB (not even one on one) about how he had to remove someone because of their "drama", and "pitty party" (two Ts, really girl?) and that I perpetuated racism and hate against cops. How the fuck is racism the same as hating cops? I really wonder where he would land on this story.

McNesty is the animal. The new thing now to deflect from the reasons that Blacks protest social injustices, is for folks like McNesty, and FOX news jerks, to call BLM racists. This is just an excuse for folks like McNesty to deny police brutality, racist cops, and social injustices that exists.

They have been trying to move that goal post for awhile now, including some here on the org.

http://www.npr.org/2017/0...-for-unity

"In fact, Black Lives Matter has no history of violence or racial bigotry comparable to America's far-right militias, neo-Nazis or Klan groups. But that's not how this plays even in fairly mainstream conservative media, where liberal groups are often portrayed as radical or dangerous."

Ahhh, fuck people like LaMothe. Like I'd actually want unity with an ignorant fool like him.

It is a blantant lie they right wing loonies kept telling despite not one shread of evidence.

They think this is the 50 and that people are just going to walk around and do nothing while police kill innocent people and klans men march in the streets. They are living in a dream world.

I ran across this article in CNN and thought about how similar this is to the combination that killed Prince. It is an eerie coincidence.------

Nevada to use fentanyl as execution drug in death penalty cases

Staff WriterResearchers found that more than 90 percent of unintentional overdose deaths in 24 Ohio counties in January and February 2017 involved fentanyl and fentanyl analogs.

Nevada will begin using fentanyl as a means to execute criminals who have been sentenced the death penalty.

In a story reported by CNN, fentanyl will be part of a drug cocktail that includes sedative diazepam, commonly sold as valium, and the muscle relaxer cisatrcurium.

Fentanyl has been the drug central in the rise of deaths in the opioid crisis that’s hit the U.S. and the Dayton area, which has been affected more than any region in the country.

Josh Bloom, a senior director at the American Council on Science and Health, who has no position on the death penalty, said the cocktail was humane, but ironic.

“You got something that’s killing hundreds of people a day across the United States,” Bloom said. “And you got prisons who can’t get death penalty drugs, so they’re turning to the drug that’s killing hundreds of people across the United States.”

The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization covering the social justice system, said medical professionals have stated the new injection cocktail doesn’t make sense.

“You don’t need valium if you have fentanyl,” Susi Vassallo of New York University said to TMP writer Maurice Chammah. She was one of several medical professionals quoted by The Marshall Project, questioning the drug selection.

States have struggled to find execution drugs after pharmaceutical companies stopped manufacturing them.

This year 464 people in Montgomery County died over accidental opioid overdoses.

^^ What does a drug article and a photo of a big syringe have to do with this thread?
