Nolte: Several Democrat-Run Cities Face Police Recruiting 'Crisis'

The far-left Axios reports “Police recruiting suffers as morale hits new lows,” citing the Democrat-run cities of Charlotte, Minneapolis, Des Moines, and Denver as the most notable examples. Charlotte, North Carolina, which has been run exclusively by Democrats for 22 years, says policing applications are down 26 percent compared to the first four months of last year. Des Moines, Iowa, which has been run exclusively by Democrats for nearly a quarter century, saw a 50 percent drop in police applicants. Fayetteville, Arkansas, a city with a non-partisan office but a mayor who’s currently serving his fourth four-year term, “had only 10 applicants qualify for interviews compared to what is typically about 40, due to a smaller applicant pool[.]” Minneapolis, Minnesota, where Democrats have been in charge for nearly 50 years, reports: “There are far fewer police officers patrolling the streets of Minneapolis so far this year than city officials anticipated. Members of a City Council committee Thursday approved $6.4 million for the city’s Police Department to hire dozens more officers this year.” Further, the city’s own data shows the number of officers plummeted from 817 to just 638. Denver, Colorado, where Democrats have been in charge for

CBC Chair Beatty: Police 'Could Shoot in the Air' and Teachers 'Break Up Fights with Knives Every Day'

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Weekends with Alex Witt,” Congressional Black Caucus Chair Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) argued that police officers “could shoot in the air” and that “Teachers go and break up fights with knives every day.” Beatty said, “We have to have a better way of de-escalating. Here is an occurrence where the police knew they were coming with two girls fighting — or a girl and two adults fighting. So, I think we have to look at the system. one size can’t fit all. You can’t say that you are trained to only shoot to the center of the body. Four shots, I mean, come on, the first shot would knock the knife, a kitchen knife to the ground. And when you look at what’s happening here in Franklin County, I’m embarrassed by it. When you look at the number of percentages of fatal shootings at the hands of law enforcement, when you look at, we’re rated 18th out of 100 of the largest, most populous cities in the nation. We need to take a longer look, a better look, rather, at our system. How are we training police officers? I find it unacceptable that one way of

CPAC Myth Buster: 0.0004 Percent Chance of Being Shot by Police

Former New York Police Department (NYPD) Detective Rob O’Donnell was interviewed on a panel moderated by Matt Boyle, Washington Political Editor for Breitbart News Network, about police data and anti-police rhetoric. Boyle asked O’Donnell if he could debunk the “defund the police narrative.” O’Donnell provided the following myth-busting data points in response to the habitual framing of police brutality: Police use deadly force under 1,000 times out of 30 million violent felony criminal contacts per year. That’s a 0.0004 percent chance of being shot by the police. In America, “you are more likely to be struck by lightning than to be shot by police.” The NYPD in 2019, with 35,000 officers only fired their weapons in the line of duty 34 times. The Chicago Police Department, with 13,000 officers, only fired their weapons in the line of duty 34 times, and the Baltimore Police Department only fired their weapons in the line of duty four times. O’Donnell accused politicians of playing a “shell game” by distracting the voters’ attention to false policing narratives while failing voters in “education, infrastructure, and transportation.” O’Donnell noted that by defunding the police, “politicians will not decrease your taxes” but relocate the money to different areas. And when crime goes

Notes on Review of DIRTY HARRY(Clint Eastwood & Don Siegel) in Counter-Currents Publishing

[embed]https://youtube.com/watch?v=5fNlwoiUgsA[/embed] DIRTY HARRY reviewed by Trevor Lynch: https://counter-currents.com/2021/02/dirty-harry/ Dirty Harry (1971), directed by Don Siegel and starring Clint Eastwood as San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan, is a classic of Right-wing cinema. It has some right-wing tropes but ultimately cops out and settles for a conventional scenario and ending. This is true of SUDDEN IMPACT as well. Early in the picture, Callahan takes out a bunch of feral black criminals who try to kidnap a white woman for gang-bang rape, but then the rest of the movie is about a white woman taking revenge on white men as rapists. So, the black rapist angle merely serves to foreshadow the rest of the story which is about revenge against White Male rapists. (Of course, those into subtext could argue that those white rapists are actually stand-ins for black rapists in an ‘anti-racist’ cultural climate that simply wouldn’t allow a black-rapist story.) So, DIRTY HARRY movies tease us with white right-wing sentiments but ultimately opts for what is permissible. None of the Dirty Harry movies had the balls to go where THE BIRTH OF A NATION did. Along with THE FRENCH CONNECTION and DEATH WISH, it appealed to Liberals
