Anti-Police “Protesters” Release A List Of Demands
It’s great that people who have been engaged in violence, arson, threats, blocking traffic (which caused problems with emergency responses), and calling for the “dead cops” have a list of demands
(Daily Caller) There have been marches in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, and elsewhere demanding “justice” of some sort — or else there would be no “peace.” They’ve been invited to meet with President Barack Obama in the White House, been praised by the Mayor of New York and countless other Democrats. But what do they want, aside from “justice”? And what exactly constitutes “justice” in the minds of those laying down in traffic and in malls has always remained nebulous, but no more – they’ve been kind enough to put their “demands” down on paper.
On fliers handed out at the New York City protest on New Year’s Eve, the “#BlackLivesMatter” movement spelled out what they “demand.”
One such demand is essentially an end to access to the court system for police officers charged with a crime:
We demand a total independent investigative body that has full and total investigative powers, and unhindered access to any scene and full access to all evidence,” they write. “This investigative body will have full prosecuting power, and the authority to mete out punishment. This agency will have the power to immediately sequester any and all officers that are involved and/or on the scene.
The full list is here. I particularly like the first demand,
1) We demand an independent all elected Civilian Complaint Review Board.
Of course they do. And who do you think will be on this board in deep Liberal areas?
4) We the people demand that any and every officer accused of misconduct, abuse of authority, or the use of excess force be suspended immediately without pay, pending the outcome of the independent investigation.
Interesting. I wonder how they would feel if we substituted “teacher” for “officer”? Anyhow, these folks seem unfamiliar with the tenants of neither the Constitution nor the criminal justice system.
13) We demand funding to establish independent community policing agencies.
Wait, what? Am I right in assuming that they want government funding to create their own community policing force, made up of the same people who rioted, looted, assaulted, arsoned, and threatened? The same people who end the “demands” with
FREEDOM JUSTICE AND EQUALITY OR DEATH
That sounds rather threatening. Based on their actions these past months, and how the flier reads, it sounds less like “give me liberty or give me death” and more like a threat to murder.
