______________________________

The cops didn’t start or benefit from the current War Against the Poor (let’s call it what it is)… the oligarchs and their Affluent Effluent running dogs did. The problem is a broken system, NOT broken policing. Don’t blame the working-class cops for the sins of the rich and the arrogant Upper Middles. Keep it focused… keep the real culprits in view… some of the cops only do what they do because they’re egged on by a corrupt news media and justice system, in the service of crapitalism and the billionaires it empowers.

This is NOT racial… it’s class warfare… of the Oligarchs against the rest of us. If you can’t see that, you’re wilfully blind.

ALL LIVES MATTER… As This Incident Shows

00 Ted Rall. Don't Hate! Neenah Hostage. 2015 311215

______________________________

On Sunday afternoon, police in Wisconsin shot and killed a man allegedly being held hostage at a motorcycle shop… he just so happened to be suing the city, their police, and the sheriff’s department for 50 million USD (3.68 billion Roubles. 324.83 million Renminbi. 3.305 billion INR. 69.4 million CAD. 68.33 million AUD. 45.86 million Euros. 33.73 million UK Pounds). Following a standoff at Eagle Nation Cycles in Neenah WI, police shot and killed 60-year-old Vietnam War veteran Michael Funk after they permitted him to leave the building after allegedly being held hostage there. Notably, Funk was in the midst of a 50 million USD lawsuit against those same police over a previous drug raid at the motorcycle shop, in which they charged him with 26 felonies that were all later dropped, other than a misdemeanour charge for marijuana. Police arrested the hostage-taker.

Coincidence? We think not.

No, Black Lives Matter™ is off-the-beam… it isn’t only blacks who are getting the drop from police. What about the Latino, Native American, and Poor White victims? Doesn’t their blood count? Black Lives Matter™ is classic divide et impera from the ruling class. The issue is power vs unpower. Full stop.

Justice for ALL people of ALL races and religions at ALL times in ALL places.

Anything else is vile hypocrisy.

DNR MVD Presented Samples of New Auto Licence Plates

00 dnr. donetsk pr licence plates. 22.05.15

________________________________

Today, at a press conference in Donetsk, Colonel Vladimir Yefimov, the head of the DNR GAI* MVD, announced as he showed samples of new DNR license plates, “We’ll start issuing new license plates will start on 26 May. However, we’re not requiring mandatory replacement of Ukrainian license plates yet. To register a vehicle with a new state number, one must go to the DNR MREO, fill out an application, and pay the registration fee. After we make checks in our databases, we’d issue a DNR licence plate”. Regular DNR plates will be white with numbers and “DPR” in the Latin alphabet (in black), MChS vehicle plates will have black numbers only, MVD vehicles will have blue licence plates, and public transport vehicles will have plates with yellow numbers. As explained by Deputy Interior Minister Nikolai Kryuchenko, at first, new auto registrations would address issues with stolen cars. To date, agencies have some 1,500 reports of missing vehicles. Auto registrations in the DNR will cost 372 Grivnya (896 Roubles. 112 Renminbi. 1,140 INR. 18 USD. 22 CAD. 23 AUD. 16.30 Euros. 11.60 UK Pounds) or 744 Roubles (92 Renminbi. 945 INR. 15 USD. 18.25 CAD. 19 AUD. 13.50 Euros. 9.60 UK Pounds); new driving licences with exam will cost 103 Grivnya (248 Roubles. 31 Renminbi. 316 INR. 5 USD. 6 CAD. 6.50 AUD. 4.50 Euros. 3.20 UK Pounds) or 204 Roubles (25 Renminbi. 260 INR. 4 USD. 5 CAD. 5.25 AUD. 3.70 Euros. 2.60 UK Pounds).

There is a 16 percent discount if one pays in Roubles rather than in Grivnya. This is a clever way to get people to use Roubles in place of “Ukrainian” funny money, wot?

11 January 2015. My Reply to a Friend on the Level of Police Violence in the USA

Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. NO Police State! 2012

____________________________

The violence has escalated since 2001… the Bushies brought in violence on a new level domestically and internationally. The GOP has become a ravening beast… only a disastrous defeat will knock them out. Even if the USA loses in the Ukraine… that won’t be such a defeat. The media will lie to cover the rich man’s mistakes. However, when (not if) the first REAL riot happens in the USA… all bets will be off.

******

Most of the coppers that I know are decent guys… however, police are being turned into military stormtroopers by the national security state brought in by the ravening Republican beasts. If you had told the returning soldiers in 1946 that the USA would hold people for years without trial, that the USA would be the most-imprisoned nation in the world, that you’d need a passport to go to Canada, that the USA would torture prisoners in secret overseas prisons, and that government goons (TSA operatives) would physically frisk you before boarding an airplane… they’d tell you that you were crazy… “This is America… it isn’t Nazi Germany!” Indeed… it isn’t Nazi Germany. By the way, only one country fought World War II according to Free Market precepts… Nazi Germany! The USA won because the socialist New Deal harnessed the country’s productive might as greedy Crapitalism never could. Ponder that…
