|Tens of millions of people saw this today|
The story out of Boston reminds us of something out of a horror film:
Yesterday, the beach, located steps away from the South Boston State Police barracks, attracted thousands of families and other Memorial Day revelers gathered for the unofficial start of summer. While the majority of the crowd was peaceful, the unruly youths again gathered at the beach and in nearby parking lots.The report out of Chicago is even stranger, with the new Mayor Rahm Emmanuel applauding the police for closing North Avenue Beach because of apparent "heat exhaustion" suffered by a number of Memorial Day revelers. In actuality, it appears roving bands of Black people required the quick closing the beach:
The troopers called for backup. State Police streamed in, State Police Special Tactical Operations teams and Boston SWAT teams arrived, and the Boston Police Department activated its Emergency Deployment Teams, which brought officers into South Boston from all over the city. State, Boston, Boston Housing, UMass, and Transit Police responded, for a total of more than 100 police officers.For the third time in four days, police dispersed the crowd, rushing everyone off the streets.The dispersal caused some tense moments between those not involved with the youths and police, who formed a line to herd the crowd south, down William J. Day Boulevard. Some jostled and argued with officers.At one moment, SWAT officers were rushing a crowd down the boulevard, and a woman yelled at a state trooper because the little boy with her was trying to put his shoes on as the trooper was pressing them to keep walking.
Was it a flash mob that forced the closure of North Avenue beach on Memorial Day?Remember Black Memorial Day 2011, and remember what Matt Drudge did with his Web site that drives more traffic than Facebook or Twitter. Drudge drives the news in ways that The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times could only dream of doing.
Chicago Police News Affairs released a statement saying they had to close the beach for safety reasons, as people were suffering heat exhaustion and emergency vehicles couldn't get through to help. But, WLS listeners say there was what they called a "large gangbanger element" at the Oak Street and North Avenue beaches.
READ: Emanuel: Police made right call in closing beach
Listeners report being at the beach, and seeing dozens of gang bangers pushing people off their bikes.
Another listener says those causing havoc were not dressed for the beach and looked like "bad elements."
Webster's dictionary defines a flash mob as a group of people summoned (as by e-mail or text message) to a designated location at a specified time to perform an indicated action before dispersing. Flash mobs also can be organized via social media sites. But recently in Chicago, flash mobs have gathered along Michigan Avenue to do anything but entertain.
In January, groups of teens assembled along Michigan Avenue and shoplifted at three separate stores. Eleven teens ranging in age from 14 to 17 were arrested.
Chicago Police are denying that a flash mob intent on causing havoc forced the closure of the North Avenue beach on Memorial Day Monday.
The common denominator in every story of Memorial Day madness across the nation was Black people interrupting family experiences at the beach, lake, rib festival, water park or events geared specifically toward Black people like Black Biker Week, Urban Beach Weekend or a Speed Street celebration.
And yet Matt Drudge was clever enough to link to the story of Mein Obama's Department of Justice going after big-city police department for purported civil rights violations when Chicago's police are trying to cover up Black violence and blaming the closure of a beach on "heat exhaustion."
Remember this day, as millions of white people - already aware that anti-white bias is getting worse in Black-Run America - saw stories of Black depravity in almost 10 United States cities that boarders on the truculent. And they saw where Eric "My People" Holder's DoJ's priorities rest.
And then our friends at Theroot.com go and report this:
MSNBC reports the Police Executive Research Forum polled 233 local law enforcement agencies in 2009, and found that the link between poverty and crime was inextricable. A prolonged recession would only make matters worse, the research showed. After reviewing the data, PERF Executive Director Chuck Wexler told Reuters, “We are not saying there is going to be a crime wave, but we are saying this is a wake-up call and we anticipate the situation will continue to deteriorate.”
Even when crime rates dropped, older urban areas still had more violent crime like Buffalo, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Cleveland, OH and Hartford, Conn. Crime is not necessarily explained by poverty; it is also explained by the reduction in police forces in those areas which results in higher crime rates. For example, Pontiac, Mich., part of the corridor of high crime cities that runs from Detroit to Flint, recently turned over its police operations to the sheriff’s office of Oakland Country, where Pontiac is located.
The top five list of America's most dangerous cities in America with populations over 100,000 is as follows:
1. Flint, Michigan
2. Detroit, Michigan
3. St. Louis, Missouri
4. New Haven, Conn.
5. Memphis, Tenn.
This study highlights what has been proven time and again -- high numbers of unemployment result in high levels of crime. The two are inextricably linked and one cannot exist without the other. The way that unemployment is plaguing black communities in these cities is outrageous. We're not surprised that there is an uptick in violent crime, despite a decline nationally. The question is, when are we going to do something about unemployment?
Crime has been down in these tough economic times (we reported on this already), but those most dangerous cities happen to majority Black, just like every Memorial Day disturbance throughout the nation was courtesy of Black people.
Matt Drudge has done something that will little remembered nor long forgotten; he has exposed Black-Run America for millions of white people who realize something is rotten in America. Where we go from there (just like the climatic scene of The Matrix) is a choice he leaves to the millions and millions of white people who read his site.
