Perpetual Riot Culture – Why?

If you ask the wrong question, you will get the wrong answer.  Pre-programmed riots are being pushed coast to coast.  They put millions – largely minority communities – in fear, destroying businesses, systematically undermining rule of law.  The question is why?

The answer requires a deep dive.  Emerging is an infrastructure for promoting perpetual riots.  Oregon to New York, Minnesota to Illinois, Wisconsin to Michigan, law enforcement contends with a pre-judgment, preemptive condemnation, malign assumptions, and preloaded violence.  Why?

Missing is context – yet context is vital.  The question is not whether Americans are just people, want accountability for individual bad acts – including when a police officer is responsible for a disproportionate, accidental, or racist act resulting in the death of a black citizen. Americans believe justice should be blind, and Black lives do matter.

The question is not whether individuals err, they do.  It is not whether racism persists in some departments, it does.  It is not whether racism exists among the population, whether unfairness needs addressing, or whether police must be exemplary. But context is essential, big picture vital.  Who is behind these persistent, disruptive, destructive, fundamentally anti-constitutional, anti-American riots?

Start with facts, because – as Ronald Reagan used to say – “facts are stubborn things.”  In 2019, America had 228.24 million citizens and .91 million police officers – less than one officer to protect every 250 citizens.

In that year, 910,000 police officers, responding to multiple murders, assaults, abduction, burglaries, robbery, carjacking, stalking, shooting, stabbing, domestic violence, and traffic calls per day responded in a way that ended in shooting death 1,054 times.

Look closely at this number. The Bureau of Justice Statistics indicates that 61 percent of Americans called police at least once.  If 61 percent of citizens dialed for help, some 139,226,400 citizens had police contact. Most situations involved crimes, yet the ratio of shooting death to contact was roughly one in 132,093.

What is more, blacks and whites called police in near-identical numbers, so black citizens do not fear the police more than whites, and both fear criminals more than the police.  Indeed, crime numbers tend to be higher in urban areas with dense minority populations, possibly elevating the value of police – especially during violent riots.

Another inconvenient fact – police departments in predominantly minority cities have proportionately higher minority numbers, thus the idea that “police” are white, victims not, is not correct.  For example, more than 43.4 percent of Los Angeles’ police force is Hispanic, 11.6 percent black (above population share), 7.1 percent Asian, only 35.4 percent white.

Similarly, in Washington DC, 59.3 percent of police are black (10 percent above population share), 6.9 percent Hispanic, 2.3 percent Asian, 31.6 percent white (below share).  Truth:  Police departments more often reflect demography, bounded by race-neutral job requirements. See, e.g., https://www.governing.com/archive/police-department-officer-demographics-minority-representation.html.

More key data:  Blacks make up 13 percent of the population yet commit 37 percent of violent crimes.  Whites makeup 61 percent of the population, commit 58 percent of violent crimes. See, e.g., https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2016/crime-in-the-u.s.-2016/topic-pages/tables/table-21.

What does this mean?  Several things.  On official numbers, violent crimes are recorded by blacks at three times population share, by whites less than population share.  What does that mean?  While whites overall commit more crime than blacks, blacks have a disproportionately higher likelihood of encountering the police – three times higher – as criminals.  That means, the likelihood of death by shooting is made higher, a product of higher criminal encounters.  This fact is often ignored.

Also ignored:  White criminals are killed by police in numbers rivaling black criminals, more than 500 white criminals in 2020-2021.  Whether the officer was white, black, Hispanic, or Asian, no parallel riots.  Notably, too, those who riot – in places like Portland, Oregon – are disproportionately not black.  Why? See, e.g., https://www.dailywire.com/news/walsh-over-500-white-people-have-been-killed-by-cops-since-2020-there-has-been-no-rioting-over-those-deaths;   https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-cop-black-lives-matter-protesters-fewer-minorities-than-police.

Last sad fact:  Black-on-black violence dwarfs white-on-black, police-on-black, white-on-white, and any other demographic comparisons.  This tells us the issue is not the police.  Despite increasing diversity in the black population, socio-cultural issues persist, rooted in culture, education, opportunities, and perceptions. Anti-police riots are a deflection. See, www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/02/22/5-facts-about-blacks-in-the-u-s/; https://www.heritage.org/poverty-and-inequality/report/the-collapse-marriage-and-the-rise-welfare-dependence.

But get to the guts of the problem – an emerging culture of perpetual riots, pushed with advance planning, mock spontaneity, lofted as racial equality – yet systematically destroying minority neighborhoods, businesses, opportunities, and personal security.

Who is behind these riots?  That is the question.  The answer must, in some ways, come from the process of elimination.  Police are not promoting these riots.  Right wing groups are not promoting them.  Responsible minorities, civil rights, and legal leaders are not pushing violence.  Quite the reverse:  They see the damage being done.

Revealing, the Biden-Harris Administration, leftist Democrats, and media are ignoring the riot culture.  This could be cowardice, ignorance, or complicity.  What we know is that these “perpetual riots” are not being confronted by national leaders, except Republicans, law enforcement, and discomfited minority and majority citizens.

Bottom line:  The radical left is creating a riot planning infrastructure, focused on persistent disruption, not materially advancing racial equality, dialogue, or thoughtful problem-solving.  They are not focused on leading facts, context, or listening. Americans chiefly want a chance for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” a chance to get along. The left aims for the opposite agenda, systematic disrespect for the law.  See, e.g., https://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2020/06/04/the-real-history-of-antifa/; https://redstate.com/brandon_morse/2020/09/30/antifa-marxism-biden-n261030; http://chinascope.org/archives/24225?doing_wp_cron=1598938447.1287479400634765625000.

Where does this come from?  Marxist doctrine.  We need to stop being “woke,” and wake up, understand the motivation for domestic violence, start thinking harder about the nation’s future, basic facts, preserving a peaceful Republic.  If this sounds serious, it is.  We must ask the right questions, pay attention to facts, abide the real answers.

The riots occur and continue to occur where they are allowed. That is in liberal sewer pits where the politicians in charge order the police to stand down or don’t allow any force to be used against them. These low IQ leftist rioters are smart in one way, in that they don’t generally return to places where the police have laid the hammer down quickly with the support of the local politicians, usually conservative politicians. So I wonder how long the liberal voters in these liberal towns and states allow their neighborhoods to be burned down and their people to be dragged out of vehicles and beaten or worse. Portland, Seattle, DC, Minneapolis, New York, Chicago, etc are all places I will never visit so as far I am concerned the leftist rioters can burn them down.

These people are domestic terrorists. Arrest the street level thugs and follow the money to the leadership. if this is not resolved there will be armed vigilante justice and perhaps further escalation. The peace loving people can only take so much before anger overwhelms

facts are stubborn things. Remember Obama saying “Police acted stupidly”. After that we continued to see violence increase. We are in a for a very bad ending to this mess while obama gets away with a clean reputation and not a smidgen of corruption connected to him.

Instability and division lead to ease of insurrection and the overthrow of law and order thus the eventual overthrow of entire countries. That’s why a grip has to be gained against the riotous actions now taking place across the nation. It’s not rebellious college students orchestrating the unrest, it’s dedicated, well trained, well funded revolutionaries organizing and leading ignorant people into actions within which they carry out the most violent acts under the mob’s cover following classic Communist playbook tactics.

This Article in The American Thinker Today: Question I have why hasn’t AMAC posted this same travesty? This article goes into details telling how this EO (signed April 15) is not about Russia, it’s about targeting American Citizens that oppose the Biden Administration and all that they are trying to get down. You don’t even have to commit a crime the Biden AG can say your a threat and you and those near you can also be targeted. The MSM has not brought this to the forefront to warn American’s, it can only be found exposed at non cable outlets such as one mentioned. People wake up get in-touch with your politicians, let them know your against this and they better get busy doing their duty to challenge it in court. We all must oppose this. April 20, 2021

When the politicians are inciting riots as a right and then want to take away our Right to Bear Arms, you got realize that this government is up to something wrong for the common good of the nation.

Oh right. They’re busy harassing MAGA supporters.
How about follow the money and prosecute those who are funding the rioters.

Said another way, the violence and riots serve the purpose of disingenuous political leaders, lame stream media, and misinformed naysayers who will not listen to balanced arguments of their leaders. Maxine Waters is a prime example of a political leader who twists and turns the truth for her own political agenda. That is disgusting in itself. You certainly cannot call her a leader, but you can call her out for inciting violence. She should be removed from congress as quickly as possible. That might serve as an example to others who take power for their own purposes to the detriment of America.

The biggest problem with this whole thing is the media, without any media coverage there would be nothing. They creating fear distrust, the media needs to be held responsible for the destruction of this country.

Isn’t “In 2019, America had 228.24 million citizens” off by about 100 million? Which would mean that 200,226,400 people had contact with police that year. Sorry even though using the additional 100 millions citizens helps the authors cause, I’m not buying these facts. No way did over 200 million people contact police in 2019. No way over 139 million people contacted police if one was to use the authors numbers. I find those numbers too outrageous, I don’t buy it, I would like too, but I cannot.

After last year’s continuous riots in democratic cities, I stopped caring about those cities and what was happening in them. The looting, burning of courthouses and municipal buildings, and destruction of minority-owned businesses, my feeling became “it isn’t me or mine that have to live in that mess without services”. If the local population continue to vote in the very people who will not stop this from happening, then they should get what they get. If I lived in a city that allow this, I would move.

This is a great article!!
All one needs to do is to spend a little time to take a close look at the “History” of the Democrat Party and I don’t mean to look at what is on their website, I mean dig deep and look at actual history not their sugar coated and edited account of history. One very quickly sees why they want to erase history and change the record, that they have been like this all along, right from the very begining they have done these types of things. This is who they are and how they function. Nothing new here, every thing we see today that seems to be unbelivable and discusting, unpatriotic, evil, this is who they are.

“Perpetual Riot Culture – Why?” —- the answer is that they are ALLOWED to Get Away with it in Democrat led states…… they RELEASE the very Rioters that are causing all of the Destruction with NO BAIL and DROP ALL Charges against them…..allowing them to go right back and Riot and Destroy more the vey next day…….

This ongoing Rioting , Looting , Pillaging , Destroying and Burning cities to the ground is NOT tolerated in Red States…

Put succinctly … the politicos rationalize this activity and are good news items, particularly for the Commie leaning Democrat Party. Arrest them, try them, and most likely at least some or most will get thrown in jail. However, in advance, legislate strict penal codes and stiff punishments for even first time offenders.

My father and all four of his brothers fought in WWII. My husbands father fought in WWII, and his step father served during the Korean War. My husband and brother served during the Vietnam War. I think I saw our beautiful American Flag ???????? weeping the other day????.
When did America lose its balls?
My heart is breaking ????. Parents don’t teach their children morals, pride and respect anymore. Hell they can’t be bothered raising them at all. That’s the problem!

I would like to see numbers on how many white vs. non-white people who were killed by Police were being confrontational or resisting arrest. So many say that they have to teach their children to fear the Police but what they should be teaching them is to do what the Police say and file a complaint later if it’s wrong.

If the American voting public does not INSIST on fixing the voting system, Constitutional governance & democracy will fall to Communism … which has a subtle pattern of the Democrat Party’s governance philosophy. A dishonest voting system ruins a Constitutional one-man — one vote guarantee of out Constitutional governance (the best in the history of the World .. though apparently decaying in current times). FIX the voting system or you have no Constitutional Democracy!!!!

It will be interesting to see what all the new immigrants will think about what is happening in America if they are brought in as citizens. Could any of them be “racist”? Maybe there should be a litmus test taken before becoming a U.S. citizen. Could they reshape America? It will take something.

People with no experience allowed to vote, no credibility, legal or not, only contributes to society what benefits them, not for the good of USA. Any one under 26 yrs old should not be able to vote,( due to the indoctrination of young minds.) and no one that has come to this country can just vote! period!! unless or until they gained citizenship.
Everyone in the world wants to come to the greatest land!! the” USA”, it SHOULD NOT be so DAMNED easy to get here. JOE BIDEN and his Administration is a DOMESTIC TERORRIST group for what he is inflicting on the people.
My Dad spent 42 years in the ARMY fought and died in the military grip. Joe Biden I`am pretty sure my dad would kick your ass in school, not out back.

All my Middle American opinion.

With all the corrupt politicians in Washington

Now is the Time for all good men to come to the aid of our country.

So get off your butts and do something. I had 2 change my party affiliation 2 republican from nonpartisan. I figure that the main problem is lack of communication and plan to put in the libraries conservative publication, get involved in politics and not just local.
