If It’s Tuesday There’s a Remus in the Woodpile

There was a time when we both honored our past and held our future in common. Why this should be reviled puzzles us of a certain age.

If it is Tuesday and you are looking for carefully curated and wisely commented links, do not look here. Look instead to Ol’ Remus at the Woodpile Report for some of the finest finds and commentary in the zone. Excerpt:

The FBI claimed it was “unable to further identify the person who actually made the comment”. Now we know why, because they didn’t ask. You can bet their attorneys are working up an excuse so noble it’ll bring tears to your eyes.

If published reports are true, the the Coral Springs police acted like men and deserve high praise from their community. The FBI revealed themselves as unworthy of our remaining respect, Sheriff Israel stands confirmed as a corrupt political poseur and some of his deputies are now exposed as cowards in cop costumes. Eric Holder Awards all around.

There are consequences. The chain of events leading to this massacre is so bizarre there’s a plausible appearance, however unlikely, of it’s having been unduly accommodated, perhaps even managed. The immediate and well prepared pivot to targeting political enemies adds to the suspicion, as do reports that vary from the accepted storyline and incidental details like this:

Chicago Tribune – “In the classroom where Mackenzie Hill had been hiding, police broke through the door. As the officers were guiding students out, they noticed something odd: One of the students had put on a bulletproof vest. The student said he’d been given the vest by his father, a police officer”.

With the Las Vegas shooting remaining opaque and suspicious, and facts about the Parkland shooting leaking out at a grudging pace, each revelation worse than the one before, it’s understandable people are asking questions they wouldn’t otherwise ask and entertaining competing narratives.

Alert the Authorities!

    Equality/Diversity is not possible without moving society/culture to the lowest common denominator. You can treat folks equal and you can legislate folks equal but it is not possible to make folks equal.

    I’d be interested in learning if the kid with the ballistic vest’s dad was Broward County SO or Coral Springs PD.

    Everything you need to know about the filth was communicated after the Ferguson fuck-up.

    “The cops have stopped doing their jobs in case it interferes with their careers.”

    Fuck em.

    This stuff has been going on in Lee County, FL, over on the west coast, since at least the early 00’s. I remember reading about in the local rag when it was still readable and it was just one more reason to get the hell out. Frankly, I’ve always believed it was bullshit for laws to be reconstructed because crimes were committed by people who were juveniles. One more instance of people not being held accountable for their behavior. What do you get? Why, MORE of that criminal behavior of course.
