Everyone still missing the point on the Berkeley, Missouri shooting

Driving out to Texas, I was listening to the news — in between having to endure my daughter Aubrey’s choice of music on Sirius XM radio — every now and then I snuck in Classic Rewind and 80s.

But the story that held my attention was the episode in Berkeley, Missouri. As reported by Yahoo News, “The mayor of the St. Louis suburb of Berkeley urged calm Wednesday after a white police officer killed a black 18-year-old who police said pointed a gun at him, reigniting tensions that have lingered since the death of Michael Brown in neighboring Ferguson.”

“A crowd of about 300 people gathered at the gas station where Antonio Martin was shot late Tuesday, throwing rocks and bricks in a scene reminiscent of the sometimes-violent protests that followed Brown’s death. A smaller crowd gathered Wednesday night. Dozens of protesters met at the gas station for a vigil, then marched to Interstate 170, at times blocking traffic, before returning to the station, according to local media reports. Berkeley Police Chief Frank McCall told KMOV-TV that six to eight people were arrested.”

However, it seems that there is a very distinct difference from this case, in a suburb of Ferguson, that protestors don’t wish to acknowledge. As we’ve seen, the anti-police movement has a defined objective and even with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio requesting a moratorium on protesting in order to respect the fallen NYPD police officers — they relented in doing so. I must ask, just how exactly does this progressive movement hope to maintain the moral high ground? Because it sure as heck isn’t happening using this modus operandi.

And in the case of Berkeley, rioting is absolutely unjustified — unless you really do want “dead cops” and “now.”

According to Yahoo News, “the shooting in Berkeley was captured on video and Berkeley Mayor Theodore Hoskins said surveillance footage appeared to show Martin pulling a gun on the unidentified 34-year-old officer who questioned him and another man about a theft at a convenience store. “You couldn’t even compare this with Ferguson or the Garner case in New York,” Hoskins said, referring to the chokehold death of Eric Garner, another black man killed by a white police officer. Hoskins, who is black, also noted that unlike in Ferguson — where a mostly white police force serves a mostly black community — more than half of the officers in his city of 9,000 are black, including top command staff.”

So what is it exactly being protested in Berkeley? Are the rioters upset that Mr. Martin wan’t able to put the “pig in a blanket”? Are these rioters taking to the streets o further express their disrespect for the law, authority, and the officers entrusted with enforcement and keeping the peace? Are we now at the point where criminal activity must go without any challenge?

“St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar did not provide more details about the theft Martin was being asked about. He said Martin pulled a loaded 9mm handgun and the officer fired three shots while stumbling backward. One hit Martin, who didn’t fire his own gun. He died at the scene. “I don’t know why the guy didn’t get a shot off, whether his gun jammed or he couldn’t get the safety off,” said attorney Brian Millikan, who is representing the officer. He said that the officer was lucky to be alive and certain he had no choice but to use lethal force. Martin had a criminal record that included three assault charges, plus charges of armed robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.”

Once again we have an 18-year-old black kid make a decision that had fateful consequences — he lost his life. Martin’s decision to draw on the police officer did not happen that night — it was just the culminating event in a series becoming all too familiar for young black males.

The black Mayor of Berkeley has stated that this case involved an armed person drawing on a police officer — so what is this rioting about? The real story is that all this protesting and rioting is a distraction from what is really ailing the black community — the failure of progressive socialist policies.

I love to hear the usual race baiters talk about how we need to have a discussion on race in America — about two Saturdays ago I wrote about the real conversation that needs to be had.

However, when are we going to have that conversation about the lack of economic activity in the black community? Just ask yourself, how many of those owners who watched their businesses being burned down in Ferguson are going to rebuild?

From what I’ve read, they only had one grocery store — would you rebuild there? What happened to the days of black-owned businesses and professional offices in the black community — you know, doctors, lawyers, banks?

You see, the real conversation is the one about urban economic empowerment zones — the original concept of Art Laffer and now deceased former US Congressman Jack Kemp (who was a heckuva pro football quarterback). Laffer was President Reagan’s economic advisor and Kemp was a GOP Member of Congress — now is the time for their idea to be resurrected and made into policy.

We must defeat the rioters, protestors, and race baiters with the best weapon available — the power of economic growth and opportunity.

The best way to degrade, defeat, and ultimately destroy the likes of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, NAACP, National Urban League, Louis Farrakhan, Congressional Black Caucus, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and their ilk is to expose their ideology and advance the antithesis, the antidote to their venom.

We must make it a mission to go into the black community and begin the quest of retaking it from that which has sent it into a death spiral — the failed policies of the welfare nanny-state and the dependency society as begun by President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. And we all know what Johnson thought of blacks and where their allegiance would be for what he believed 200 years – we just can’t print it here, or Facebook will take our page down.

What we must do is develop a policy that reverses the Great Society — which is really a failed society. And I cannot think of a better time to do this than in the 50th anniversary year of this covert advancement of a 21st century economic plantation.

So know that this is a mission for me. It’s not one of politics, but of sound policy that will save my community — and in turn my country. Unlike progressive socialist policies, I will not fail. And by the way, not holding political office is neither a measurement nor hindrance.

I hear a lot of black commentators saying we need to discuss the issues, as of yet, I haven’t heard what those issues are.

Rena

I have seen many try to discuss it but are washed out by the screaming voices of Sharpton et al… Col West, Dr Carson, Herman Cain and many other have often spoken of the issues, such as taking away charter schools, the issues of black on black crime, fatherless homes and people taking responsibility instead of blaming others…

Or perhaps those that are accusing him of these things are just making the crap up, or its being spread like wildfire because what he said doesn’t fit the lefts agenda of keeping blacks as victims.

I would like to see a strong national coalition of black leaders come together that are not dividers but uniter, a coalition that operates like a think tank and lays out formulas for success in dealing crime,a change in values, and character while trying to develop .empowerment zones. A coalition that without reservation leaves out those who are the dividers and agitators completely. Stalwart leaders like Lt.Col Allen West, Dr.Ben Carson, Senator Tim Scott, Milwaukee Sheriff Clark,Dineen Borelli,Mia Love, and other responsible black leaders who are not as well known to a national audience. **It is but a start!!!

I could not agree more, but how do we encourage, and support the re-birth of the nuclease of the two parent family that once existed before 1965 in the black community?

The “Great Society Program” signed into law by the Johnson Administration all but destroyed it. I watched what it did for decades, it was like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

JFK and MLK most certainly would have never stood for this. We went from “Ask not what your country can do for you…” to Johnson’s welfare trap almost over night. We went from “content of character, not the color of skin” to “at’s all about color” also almost over night.

Coincidence doesn’t equal causality, but in this case, I’ve got to wonder because the consequences were profound.

Unfortunately we’re going to become more and more divided unless something quickly changes. If you’re a Black American (like me) you’ll be labeled a “sell-out” or “Uncle Tom” if you attempt to unite folks of different colors without any political agenda attached. If you’re a White American, many of you are growing tired of being called a racist/bigot by many folks in the black community and the mainstream media. If you’ve tried reaching out to Black Americans in friendship over the years, one has to feel betrayed and misunderstood.

It’s hard for folks to get an understanding when we choose situations like the Antonio Martin incident…where this 18 year old criminal decides to suddenly pull out his gun and point it at law enforcement. I’m not defending the dead criminal in such a case, and neither should you. Mike Brown? Same thing. However, I AM outraged at the murders that occur everyday all across cities in America where it’s black on black hate crimes but the same folks hollering “injustice” don’t seemed to be concerned with this crisis.

This is not true… they are going after the cop who killed Rice. And more times than not they do go against the white person who kills a black, and charge them with hate crimes more than they will a black who commits the same crimes… You do not see any blacks getting charges of hate crimes.

This is what happens to whites in FL. More often than to blacks.People need to stop us for actions not for race. It is NOT OK for blacks to discriminate either. And I don’t care to understand “where they come from and ignore it.” I call a racist of any color a racist. When Obama won in 2008, a black woman at work told me “Haha, CRACKA!!! Now, Black People Gonna Be On TOP!!!” I called her a racist then, and I stand by that now. I also told her “NO They will not. NO ONE WILL.”

I was on the street listening, and heard Sharpton fanning the flames of “get whitey” After that, between Sanford and Midway, a white man was pulled out of his car and beaten with hammers. His comatose body was then taken to a hospital, thanks to decent blacks that called for help. The agitators tried to get riots started, but the locals, black and white, weren’t having it. And this is the SOUTH.

Oh so wrong you are… Blacks were holding other Blacks as slaves before “whitey” came to get them in Africa. Not to mention, slavery was mentioned in the Bible long before whites held slaves…. You really need to research slavery hun… you are proving to be quite ignorant about the subject.

Perhaps you should start with watching D’Souza’s America… and before you accuse me of only learning that way… I knew about it long before that movie came out… Learned it decades ago doing my own research.

You can’t just choose a time or place when everyone in America came from somewhere else, including the Native Americans, who came from Asia. Racism has been in around since the beginning of our existence, where even light skinned blacks look down on the darker skinned blacks, and some tribes against others… Racism didn’t begin here and it wont end here… But slavery did end here but not in Africa where they are still holding other Africans in bondage…

No disrespect Rafael but who is your master? I’m no history scholar but I heard slavery was abolished over150 years ago. I feel slavery is used as an excuse for not having success. Not saying by all because I’ve known successful black people, my daughter-in-law is in that group. She’s in a supervisor/managerial position (the boss) and she is very supportive of those who report to her. Works with them to help them elevate their position if that is their desire.

Police are trained to pick out people who LOOK like they might commit a crime REGARDLESS of color.

Like these toys? Ultimate Political Incorrectness: Black Americans Commit Majority Of Gun Murders African American Black persons, mostly young black men, commit the majority (57%) of gun homicides. They also commit over 52% of all homicides. The sensational massacres, as horrific as they are, are much less than 1% of gun homicides. Blacks make up 13% of the population (both sexes) but commit 57% of gun homicides. It’s even worse since it’s more like 6.5% of the population (males) committing 57% of the gun homicides.

Last I heard that was a black police officer that shot the child.

The last I heard that child playing with a toy gun was killed by a BLACK police officer, not a WHITE police officer. And, yes, Irish and every other ethnic background and every color from white to black will be shot at (and some killed) by police officers of ALL colors if they either refuse to follow police orders OR (worse) pull a gun on a police officer. The shame of the Ferguson riots is that so many will NOT BELIEVE the results of two autopsies that proved a)Michael Brown did NOT have his hands up when he was shot,… Read more »

He, MB, may have never been spoken to if he and his friend hadn’t been in the street!!

Rena

Not sure, haven’t done any research on that. But you only mentioned “plantation” and slaves hun and told Col West that he can’t speak for you.. why not, is he not black enough for you? Seems to me he had his struggles as well but didn’t let that hold him back or play victim the rest of his life.

Your point? Do you understand what he was talking about or you just pulling that out to say he started talking about plantations first? Do you even know what he means or any of these men men when they say get off the Plantation?

Enough is enough…this has become a country that tolerates far too much….our future will see its demise from within..government trying to take guns from law abiding citizens so they can’t protect themselves now government is trying to buy up all the ammo so we can’t protect ourselves. I can assure you, you bring this crime to my neighborhood you better be prepared.

The problem is this country is being ran by ideology and emotional outburst. Neither of which produces positive results. It does not make for good domestic or foreign policy. The leaders of the current administration use emotion to enrage the uninformed voters and the progressives treat them as if they were children without the ability to control their emotions or behavior. And the uninformed accept this modern form of slavery that warehouses them in many of the inner cities where home prices are beyond their reach and jobs are not available for the common laborer. Tax money that is suppose… Read more »

Race is only an issue because the media and the talking thugs are making it so. I grew up in the deep South when integration first started. Yes there were instances where a few bad eggs despised the presence of the kids who were not white. But, it took very little time before all that was needed was for ALL of us to behave as we knew we should and the “racial” issues went away. Today, many of my friends here are non white and to a person we all see this crap coming out of MO and New York… Read more »

Once again this LIE about a raceless UTOPIA!!! Sorry Tommy but there are still those out there that HATE only because of the color of someones skin! Just look at ANDY MARTIN right on this blog….calling black people APES and the N word….then you have others that feel that if you call someone WHITE its equivalent to the N word!

Can you point out where Andy Martin used any of those words ,,I was unable to find “apes” or him using the disgusting “N” word so commonly used in the black community.

Allen West doesn’t want you to know this…he wants u to believe all black people are thugs and welfare queens (except him)
n 1970, only 3% of the African population had college degrees vs 20%, 2010. High school numbers: 31% and 85%, respectively. Since then those (20% and 85%) numbers have only went up. Our community is growing stronger and will win, prevail over racism

Kyright

Where are you getting your numbers? There are way too many crimes committed by blacks. They kill babies, children, elderly, innocents, anyone that gets in the way and their horizontal hand guns. And that’s just what is reported on the news. “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime” Sick and tired of the black communities and their excuses. If this is to stop, really get serious, take the bull by the horns.

Andy Martin

Only 42% of college blacks graduate. 28% of blacks are on welfare. And you will never prevail if you keep killing each other. So I guess, using your logic, blacks are racists towards each other and they snuff each other out. Or is that just blacks being blacks in your warped mind?

AZ, Why do you resent Col West’s opinion? Sooo YOU can give your two cents worth, but no one else can. BTW, why are you reading his articles????
