A SUGGESTION TO SOLVE THE “GULF OF MISTRUST”

Posted by Tim Bryce on December 15, 2014

BRYCE ON POLITICS

– My solution is considerably simpler than the President’s (and less expensive)

In the wake of the Mike Brown shooting and resulting riots in Ferguson, Missouri, President Obama claims to be looking for ways to heal the country. In a speech before the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual awards dinner on November 29th, the President claimed “a gulf of mistrust” exists between residents and police in too many communities. The question thereby becomes, is he telling the truth or is this nothing but more rhetoric to stir up the country?

Obama has since proposed spending millions of dollars on body cameras and retraining the police to become more restrained when dealing with black crime. Frankly, the money would be more wisely spent on retraining the thugs in the community, or better yet, work on ways to improve the family unit in the black community. Let us not forget, Michael Brown, was a product of a broken home. This may have added to his taking drugs, robbing the convenient store, and his rage against the police.

The President has also called for meetings at the White House to consider ways to overcome the alleged problem that “people distrust the cops.” Attending the meeting were civil rights leaders, representatives of law enforcement, and politicians. Also participating was Al Sharpton, the IRS deadbeat, Media Pig, MSNBC dunderhead, and poster child for racial unrest who is still warmly welcomed at the White House for some strange reason. Nothing was immediately forthcoming from these meetings other than to reenforce the perception the cops are not to be trusted.

As I mentioned in my book, “Liberal Kryptonite,” the liberal playbook calls for instilling a sense of fear in the populace. Whereas law enforcement was generally considered the good guys prior to Ferguson, now the president and the left want you to believe they are bad and not to be trusted. This is an interesting sleight of hand that is aided by the main street media. What the President, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton are suggesting is the Ferguson Grand Jury decision was meaningless, and they will not be satisfied until Darren Wilson is put away for Brown’s death. Even if Wilson is prosecuted and found innocent, this will not satisfy the Left. They will continue to protest and play upon the white sense of guilt over slavery (again).

We will likely hear the mantra of “a gulf of mistrust” for quite some time. It’s like running a television commercial over and over again until you know, “15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance.” The idea is to intentionally create a barrier between blacks and whites which, in turn, perpetuates racial discord thereby causing blacks to form ranks under the Democratic party.

If the President, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, et al, were seriously concerned about black/white relations, why is it they failed to comment on the Mobile, Alabama case where an 18 year old unarmed white male, Gilbert Collar, was shot by a black police officer, Trevis Austin. What is good for the goose should be good for the gander, right? Wrong. Liberals are fully cognizant that disharmony is caused by portraying the minority as the innocent victim. It does not work when a person from the majority is the victim.

Mr. President, here is a suggestion for you; I believe I have the answer for solving your problem; if you really want to overcome the “gulf of mistrust” between the people and law enforcement, have the communities commit fewer crimes. Eliminate the drugs, promote morality and family values, and condemn thuggery. The police will then have less to do and tensions will relax. Simple, isn’t it?

Keep the Faith!

  3. When I recently asked a former (i.e. me retired; she still in the classroom) colleague, who advises our school’s Black Student Association if she touched at all on the rampant Black-on-Black crime that fuels the African-American community’s strained relationship with law enforcement, she gave me an answer that I consider “bass ackwards.” She informed me that the violence in Black neighborhoods exists because of an inability to respect the establishment; which disrespect is manifest in the treatment of that community by law enforcement. Not, she opined, until that problem is solved will crime begin to significantly decline in Black neighborhoods.

    This is much, much more than a mere ‘chicken or egg’ argument. Apparently, she (whether sincerely or just as a matter of placing/avoiding blame) is under the impression that law and law enforcement are somehow responsible for keeping peace in any community. Nothing, of course, could be further from the truth. Law enforcement rarely prevents crime in any community. There are instances, I would imagine, of illegal activity not escalating due to the presence of respected law enforcement, and I suppose that the threat of being apprehended might deter an occasional potential perpetrator (though sociologists give little credence to that notion).

    Those of us who live and work in peaceful communities enjoy that privilege not because we know that the police are present to enforce the law upon our less law-abiding neighbors, but, because we, at least, respect the law and, much more to the point, respect each other: each other’s property rights and fundamental ‘person-hood.’ We are able to see society in this light, at the root of it all, simply because we respect ourselves, and in that notion lies the key to all else in society.

    “The Obummer has started the gulf of mistrust. He is getting what he wanted. He is determined to cause race warfare, class warfare, hatred of business, both large and small. It should come as no surprise that he is at the start of all this mistrust. Anyone that has the tax cheat, Sharpton, come to the W.H. 61 times and be involved in presenting his pick for the new A.G. and meets with the obummer to discuss Ferguson, is obviously a racist.”

    “I remember the TV images of the meeting and the Fox panel telling me that nobody from Ferguson was at the meeting. Doesn’t that tell all of us that the meeting was not about the Ferguson. Also not presented was the high black on black crime and death rate. So that tells me this was not the issue. Obviously what is left is politics The meeting discussed race political issues that Obama has been talking about since 2008.”
