That Atlanta cop who shot the black guy who shot at him with a taser is being charged with murder. Think about what that job must be like nowadays. The criminals and the low lives won’t allow themselves to be arrested anymore. They’ll fight you, try to get your gun and if you do your job or defend yourself, you’ll be charged with murder if the perp dies. You have to wear a camera all the time and any altercation that gets ugly leaves you liable to police brutality charges and disciplinary actions. The brazenness of the criminals means you stand a good chance of being shot or stabbed or assaulted in some fashion and the black population hates and insults you at every turn. Your food will be poisoned in fast food joints by the minimum wage employees from the neighborhood and your chain of command and the mayor will turn on you at the drop of a hat and feed you to the sharks.
So, you might ask yourself why would anyone want to be a white cop in a black city. The short answer is it used not to be this bad. And that has been true forever. The cities have been getting progressively worse over the course of the last century but we have now reached the breaking point. Places like Baltimore, St. Louis, Kansas City and Atlanta have finally reached the point where the cop’s job is untenable.
Why don’t they quit? Well the pay is good; the benefits are very good and the retirement is excellent. Some cops can retire at twenty years in. That means you could be thirty-eight and retiring on full pay. Plus, if you quit now what would you do? Your family is local. Your kids are in school in a suburb and you have roots in the community. What job would pay anything close to what you currently make? You want to stay. But how to avoid ending up in jail?
What I expect to see from now on is cops ignoring all black crime. I’m not even sure they’ll intervene in a gang shootout. They’ll just wait for the two sides to run out of bullets and call the ambulances to collect the ones who didn’t avoid the flying lead. And this probably will hold for black criminals in white neighborhoods. And that will hasten the white flight that is already gripping the cities that recently went through the riots. I’ve spoken to Manhattanites who tell me that the middle-class people are looking to get out. The way it was explained to me the rich don’t care because they are completely insulated from the impact. They have their own schools and security arrangements and if things get really bad, they’ll just stay out at their homes in the Hamptons until the violence blows over. But the middle class have none of these buffers. So, they’re leaving. And when they do the city starts sinking. The tax base will disappear and city services will suffer drastic cuts and then even the rich will leave. And once that happens you get Detroit.
I only hope no more white guys become cops in black cities. Let the guys in there get out as soon as they can and then let the jobs be filled by black city dwellers. That will be the perfect solution. I guarantee that the denizens won’t like it much. The criminals won’t be able to yell racism and the black cops won’t worry about police brutality. But the honest citizens will be the ones to pity. The levels of corruption and incompetency in black run cities are usually impressive. Baltimore is on their second mayor convicted of financial crimes associated with the office and I believe the next mayor will be one of those two coming back for another try. Detroit politics are so laughably corrupt that Michigan had to step in and oversee much of their finances. And the school systems are truly frightening in their dysfunction.
But the best outcome in Atlanta would be for the whole police force to resign en masse. Within a month there wouldn’t be a single business unlooted in the whole city. The murder rate would be so high that the people tallying it would give it up as unmanageable. And Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms would beg the police on bended knee to come back. She would somehow have the officer who was arrested for murder cleared of the charge and reinstated.
That would be the best outcome for Atlanta. But it would not be the best outcome for those policemen. Their jobs will never be anything but hellish. They should get out and stay out. These cities are unmanageable and will only get worse. Let the people there manage themselves. Let the Democrats rule all the Detroits they are making. After all, White Lives Matter too. At least to us they do.
