In a glimpse of the nightmarish United States of America on the verge of being born nationwide with a Hillary Clinton victory in November, a federal judge just sided with Black Lives Matter over a beleaguered, on the verge of complete federalization police force. [Federal judge declares ‘black lives matter’ during hearing over Seattle police reform, Seattle Times, August 16, 2016]:
U.S. District Judge James Robart, pointedly reacting to the Seattle police union’s rejection of a tentative contract, said Monday he would not let the powerful labor group hold the city “hostage” by linking wages to constitutional policing.
“To hide behind a collective- bargaining agreement is not going to work,” Robart said during a dramatic court hearing he opened by laying out a path for police-accountability reform and closed with an emotional declaration that “black lives matter.”
The future is one of federally-enforced Black Lives Matter judiciary rulings... law and order replaced with ordering white people to respect Black Lives Matter approved laws
Robart, who is presiding over a 2012 consent decree requiring the city to adopt reforms to address Department of Justice allegations of excessive force and biased policing, called for major changes that would directly affect the union’s membership: streamlined appeals of officer discipline and internal investigations conducted by civilians rather than sworn officers.
Kevin Stuckey, who recently became president of the Seattle Police Officers’ Guild (SPOG) in a power shake-up and listened in court to the judge’s blistering remarks, said the union is prepared to sit down with the city and reach a deal.
“The judge has given us our marching orders,” Stuckey said, insisting the union’s vote this summer to reject the deal was not tied to money but to the leak of confidential contract details to The Stranger newspaper.
Guild members — officers and sergeants — voted 823 to 156 this summer to reject a contract containing a mix of wage hikes and reforms, an outcome one source attributed to too many giveaways without enough in return.
Other sources previously said former SPOG President Rich O’Neill, who in 2008 won big pay raises in exchange for reforms, led the campaign against the package. O’Neill’s effort indirectly led to Robart’s tongue lashing, during which he said he might formally intervene if he concludes the guild is interfering with reform.
“The court and the citizens of Seattle will not be held hostage for increased payments and benefits … ,” Robart said, adding, “I’m sure the entire city of Seattle would march behind me.”
Robart, at the same time, praised the city’s overall reform effort, saying the Police Department had adopted sweeping changes. It has become a national model for de-escalation tactics, he said, and put in place successful crisis intervention techniques, use-of-force reviews and added training on bias-free policing.
He said that the work is not done and that strong leadership is required. “I think we have the right person to do that in Chief O’Toole,” Robart said of Kathleen O’Toole, who listened from the audience.
Last week, Robart issued an order allowing the city to draft police-accountability legislation, as long as he reviews it before it is submitted to the City Council to make sure it does not conflict with the consent decree.
Robart ended the hearing with deeply personal remarks, in which he noted a statistic that showed, nationally, 41 percent of the shootings by police were of blacks, when they represented 20 percent of the population.
“Black lives matter,” he said, drawing a startled, audible reaction in a courtroom listening to the words coming from a federal judge sitting on the bench.
He also said the recent shootings of police officers, including in Dallas, Baton Rouge and, in 2009, of four Lakewood, Pierce County, officers, reflected the importance of the work being done to heal police and community relations.Black people must never be held accountable for their individuals action, when, collectively, whites can be blamed... or the police, for daring to arrest eternally innocent - and hopelessly discriminated against - blacks.
By the way, Judge: blacks are 13 percent of U.S. population and only eight percent of Seattle's population, but are responsible for a shockingly high percentage of violent crime. Without a black population, it's safe to say Seattle would have almost no need for homicide division in the police department.
"Hillary's America" is about some past KKK-connections of the Democrat Party, but the current, rabidly anti-white, anti-law and order Democrat Party that envisions the future being an America where white people have virtually no rights, save the right to be eternally the slave of empowering non-whites.
Those recent police shootings of white officers by black radicals (whose executions of white police officers in Dallas are sickly justified by the Judge here and by the mainstream media elsewhere) reflect the need to confront Black Lives Matter rhetoric and combat it with discourse that isn't entirely predicated on the notion white people and police are inherently evil.
If not, you might see an "evil" unleashed demanded by Thomas Jefferson when a people is reduced to absolute despotism.
