Rayshard Brooks Incident Exponentially Grows Police Rules Of Engagement

Desk Jockey Legalists and Arm Chair Exerts Wax On And On Over The Precise Legal Decision To Be Made In A Split-Second High Adrenalin Event Totally Alien To Them.

"Rules Of Engagement" work fine in the office where the constantly updated book stands in its original and updated form. It works fine, right there in that office. But every battlefield grunt knows that the primary plan goes secondary the instant the bullets start flying, and then you're on your own. 

There is a very good reason that the battlefield soldier and the street cop needs a reasonable amount of legal immunity before they go into action. All kinds of bad things happen in high risk activities, such as police work. Variations in cop situations are infinitely variable and absolutely unpredictable. Life and death decisions have to be made in split seconds, and that's why we most properly give the cop more leeway than we give the suspect.

The Rahshard Brooks shooting was another tragic incident that didn't have to happen, but it did, and it cannot be undone. In life and death situations there are no do-overs. But that doesn't mean that life and death situations cannot be super analyzed and criticized, and even propagandized and hyper-exaggerated for political purposes. 

Over the time since the incident, it has been talked to death on the radio talk shows and the TV network news, to the point that you would think they would run out of words, but they never do. 

Let me try to summarized what all the commentators, analysts, pundits and experts are saying into one brief "what officer Rolfe should have done" imaginary scenario:

After Brooks suddenly decided to resist arrest, assaulted the two cops, successfully wrestled them off after disarming one of them of his taser, broke away and ran, turned and fired the taser at pursuing officer Rolfe, the officer right then and there should have sat down in the street, opened up his 15 pound Rules Of Engagement and looked up the situation, before returning fire. 

The problem is that life on the street for the cop doesn't happen the way life in the office happens, where they imagine all these rules for the street into being and just write them down. 

We've heard every ridiculous charge, from why didn't he just shoot him in the leg, to he shouldn't have shot at all, to he should have just let him go. Well, if it was that easy, shooting on the run to shoot him in the leg, why not shoot him in his pinky, or maybe just one of his toes? 

Everybody went for "The Protocols", and "The Training", and what THEY would have done in that situation.  Right.  But THEY weren't in that situation, officer Rolfe was. It's easy to second-guess someone else's actions in a sudden high risk situation, but it's not so easy on the street, which is why the "experts" are not on the street and thus not at risk. No one knows better what happened there than the guys it happened to. No one is more expert on that situation than they are. 

Right, wrong or a mixture of both, officer Rolfe deserves the benefit of the doubt and immunity from prosecution in this case because, bottom line, he is the good guy and Brooks was the bad guy. It didn't have to happen. Brooks made it all happen. 

What needs to be changed more than any rules of engagement are the penalties for resisting arrest. All of this was precipitated by another sudden and unexpected case of resisting arrest, as is most common in all police incidents in which someone dies. Conviction of Resisting Arrest should put people in prison for a very long time, as an inducement to cutting the numbers of resisting arrest incidents. 

President Trump listened to a lot of experts before he signed his executive order regarding these police incidents being used by Marxocrat Party sponsored street terrorist groups like Black Lives Matter as excuses to riot, plunder and burn and terrorize. He had to do something and we're glad he did. 

We disagree with the banning of the choke hold for police, but not for perpetrators, because of the absolute unpredictability of body positions and suddenly changing defense and offense opportunities the minute the situation becomes a physical randori or grappling event. It may even be that a choke hold is the only opportunity available. Never knowing where such an event is going, the officer must assume that it is a life and death struggle from the outset. What looks relatively innocent at first can turn deadly in a heartbeat. No one should ever resist arrest in the first place, but lots of people do. That's the problem

No one should ever be allowed to walk free after resisting arrest. 

In all likelihood, the choke hold has been used successfully by police officers untold thousands of times with nobody dying from it. It is an effective method of gaining control, and it should not be "criminalized" when used by any cop against anyone resisting arrest. Sometimes, as with everything, bad stuff happens, but resisting arrest is already bad stuff happening. 

We have elsewhere herein expressed our horror at watching the George Floyd murder play out, over and over again. Floyd was cuffed and compliant; there was no reason other than malice to slowly murder him that way. Marcie and I were both more angered at the other cops on the scene watching it happen and not interfering than we were with the actual murderer. This was a cabal of bad cops, and it proved that there are bad cops out there, and that there are cabals of bad cops in cahoots with each other. 

Whether the motivation in the George Floyd murder case was racist or not is open to question; but there is no question that these were bad cops, brutally imposing tyrannical police power on a citizen, brazenly, while being watched and recorded. As if they were showing off, as a warning to the public or something. 

That being said, we would still hazard a guess that 75% or more of all local police are good cops, dedicated and even heroic keepers of the peace at risk of life and limb. 

Conversely, we would hazard a guess that 90% or more of federal cops, with the FBI leading the way, are bad cops, part of the Marxocrat Party owned and operated Permanent Government that has been and still is involved in the criminal activity of attempted toppling the legitimate Constitutional Trump government. 

Look what they did to General Flynn. 

No American citizen should ever trust or ever even engage in casual conversation with any FBI agent, lest they wind up like Flynn. 

Racism, in and of itself, is probably the last thing American citizens need to worry about in their police forces. Perfection is not of this world, but the next; there have always been and there will always be racists, in every race, in every nation, in every group, and in every police force. Except when it is encouraged, it is always a small minority problem, people recognize it when they see it, and they deal with it appropriately.

Systemic racism in American police is a lie. The only systemic racism to be found in America is in Sorosian funded, Alinskyian organized, Marxocrat Party sponsored anti-American groups such as Black Lives Matter, the Black Panthers and other Marxocrat Party hate groups, as described in the Divide And Conquer pages and elsewhere herein.

America is not and never was systemically racist. Neither are white people. No nation on earth today or ever in history ever opposed racism more than America has and does. 

The Marxocrat Party is and always was systemically racist. 


The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us

The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
