Justice

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

I guess you are tired of reading about the Ferguson riots, and now of the New York riots, and all the other future riots planned by the socialist Left, aided and abetted by the nation-divider-in-chief and duly executed by the benighted blacks. Once again, the US justice system is under attack; and yes, I admit – it is not perfect.

divideThe judicial activism is approved by the ‘progressives’, whenever it suits them, but a decision of the United States Supreme Court in Buck v. Bell, 274 U.S. 200 (1927), written by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. “in which the Court ruled that a state statute permitting compulsory sterilization of the unfit, including the intellectually disabled, “for the protection and health of the state” did not violate the Due Process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution” would not be approved by the Left. Justice Holmes wrote: “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute the degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, the society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind.”

The Supreme Court has never expressly overruled Buck v. Bell. Obviously, there is no need to. Imbeciles do not starve and blacks do not commit crimes, as for example, the latest Left poster victim, late Mr Garner in New York. But:

1. The choke hold did not asphyxiate him. He was telling the officers that he could not breathe. You can’t do that if you’re being fatally choked.

2. The autopsy showed that he had an underlying heart condition and asthma. According to the autopsy report the compression applied to his chest is likely what caused his death.

3. Garner had been arrested some 30 times and knew what to do. For some reason on this occasion he chose to resist arrest. He was aware of his own health condition and should have submitted immediately when asked to do so, repeatedly and calmly, by the officers.” ( Jack Lacton)

Theodore Dalrymple:

More than a quarter of blacks killed by police — about 1300 of 4500 — were killed by black officers; and as black officers represent only a sixth of the force, a black man should therefore be warier of a black policeman than a white.”

Long time ago the media stopped the pretence of unbiased reporting; perhaps unaware how closely they resemble the Communist regimes’ press in all but intelligence. The communist editors of old had to consider the knowledge of their readers; the today’s ones know that the educational system took care of that. For example, the most descriptions of the recent Arizona shooting had Brisbon “reaching for his pills” when shot, which suggests an unfortunate man about to suffer some medical mishap and trying to prevent that. Only some reported it was a bottle of oxycodone pills and none, to my knowledge, what I easily found on Wikipedia:

United States – As a street drug, Oxycodone is also called oxycotton. In the United States, more than 12 million people abuse opioid drugs. In 2010, 16,652 deaths were related to opioid overdose…

Australia – The non-medical use of OxyContin began in Australia in the early 2000s. By 2007, 51% of a national sample of injection drug users in Australia had reported using oxycodone, and 27% had injected it in the last six months.

I am not suggesting that drug pushers with previous convictions ought to be shot by the police. Still … maybe some mothers in the neighbourhood are not too upset.

Our (Australian) socialist media are pining for some shooting of an ‘unarmed Aboriginal teenager’ so that they too can confirm their party credentials. As I often wrote, our leftists have no imagination and blindly copy the American ones. As long as unemployement cheques are coming our ferals are also ready.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    US police are too ready to use violence, I say.

    Australian media ( for example Chanel Nine yesterday) still dishonestly repeat: “the illegal choke hold”.
