I get a lot of these.
Since I was on Cincinnati radio today, thought I would post this again:
LETTER FROM A CINCINNATI COP.
Why Black Mob Violence is Enough to Make Good Cops Quit
I’ve been a cop in a big, mid western city for about a decade now. Black mobs here don’t appear to be the same as in New York or California where there are constantly hundreds of teens running rampant through the streets, but they are working up to it. They graduated from the school of black on white violence long ago, and are working on their organization degree it seems and commencement is around the corner.
I work in a city that has sacrificed one side of town to clean up its downtown area. I work in that one side of town. Not too long ago, this side of town was the retirement precinct for cops. It was quiet and family oriented and mostly white. Downtown either ran out of room or the city didn’t want downtown to burn so they lit my side of town on fire instead.
Section 8 started moving this way, white flight ensued, property values went down, foreclosures sprang up, more section 8 moved in, property values went down some more, more white flight, more section 8, etc. until the only white people that were left were section 8 themselves, elderly people who refuse to move, those who can’t sell their house, or those who tough it out and hope for change.
For the violent, black criminal element that was bred downtown, this side of town is a playground for them. There are tons of white people to harass, rob, beat up, steal from, and sometimes rape or kill. One group of thugs who targeted white victims admitted that they targeted white people because the only thing white victims do is call the police.
They said black victims will posse up their family members and seek revenge, but white people only call the police. I believe they were telling the truth for the most part. Not just any white victim will do either. They usually have to be drunk, weak, or even handicapped. One group of black youth attacked a white kid who was obviously mentally retarded and took his wallet.
When you see videos of black mob violence, think about all the incidents that aren’t caught on tape. Also think about all the black mob harassment that doesn’t reach the level of violent crime because black mobs don’t always necessarily lead to violence. Black mob harassment is daily and they destroy neighborhoods.
They get together, sometimes organized on Facebook or by arrangements made at school and just hang out within a couple of city blocks, usually at bigger intersections for an audience. Often, they are just nuisances: urinating in people’s yards, playing loud music, rapping loudly, soliciting sex from women and young girls, playing dice, drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana, etc. but when these meetings occur, anything can happen. Often, they fight among themselves which of course leads to shootings and sometimes death.
Lately, dismissal from a high school even requires extra police presence. As students merely leave school to go home, some can’t make it three blocks before having to assault or harass someone undoubtedly minding his or her own business.
So why would all this make good officers want to quit? As a conscientious officer who feels it my duty to allow peaceful people to live in peace, I feel helpless. The police agencies, detention facilities, and courtrooms have been desensitized to black crowd violence and nuisance.
I feel like the institution I am a part of has no real plan to address the black mob and black crime epidemic and my role is only to maintain just enough peace to keep the status quo of a permissible level of black violence in order. But no level of violence should be permissible and maintaining this status quo is a disservice.
There is no good fight to fight. Hell, we haven’t even identified black violence as a problem. We go to community meetings and everyone pulls their hair out trying to figure out what is wrong when all they have to do is say what is wrong. White people in these meetings are in tears telling us how bad their quality of life is, but never have the courage to say what the problem is. They never mention race. I’ll never understand that.
I can’t say it because I would be on the national news that night, but why can’t they say it? Don’t they know that loud voices are the only voices that are heard anymore? Black people hint towards a riot and the whole nation listens. If you can’t even say how you feel in a community meeting with a few dozen like minded people, what chance do you have?
So nothing changes and they get frustrated. Who do they get frustrated with? The police. They put the problem on us. They don’t understand why we can’t just arrest every punk that walks down the street, and it’s our fault large groups of poorly parented youth get together and harass people. They won’t admit it is a cultural problem. The miscommunication is heartbreaking and is no way to make a living.
An inactive or indifferent cop won’t feel the same way. He doesn’t see it the same way I do. The burden of black on white violence is only the burden of having to make yet another robbery or assault report. Good cops want the opportunity to help people, bring justice on those who hurt people, and want to see results.
A once proud, peaceful neighborhood that is getting more violent every year, causing the good people to hide further beneath their bed is hard to witness. As police work gets more hazardous and the problems more blurred, the indifferent cops are the ones who will fill the ranks in your local police agency. Conscientious officers will find other matters to tend to.
