Scout Schultz commits ‘suicide by cop,’ yet Georgia Tech rioters blame police

Published

Scout Schultz

A riot erupted at Georgia Tech last night following a vigil for slain student Scout Schultz. A police vehicle was torched as around 50 students marched on the Georgia Tech Police Station. Warnings were issued to residents to stay inside. Two officers sustained minor injuries and three people were arrested and charged with inciting a riot and battery of an officer.

This type of scenario is all-too common lately. A violent or potentially violent suspect gives reason for police to use force. Then, the community and/or student body turn vigils into protest and protests into riots. Looking closer at the situation surrounding this particular shooting, it’s clear that this was not the fault of the police officers involved.

  • 21-year-old Scout Schultz had a history of depression and mental illness. He had attempted suicide in the past according to his father.
  • He called the police to report himself as having a knife and a GUN.
  • While confronting police, he said repeatedly, “Shoot me.”
  • Three suicide notes were found in his room.
  • Despite multiple, often compassionate pleas by the officers involved for him to stop approaching them with his brandished knife (no gun was found), he continued to move towards them until he was shot.

This is a crystal clear example of “suicide by cop,” the act of killing oneself by provoking police officers to use deadly force. Here’s the video of the incident (WARNING: Graphic):

The argument being made by the family’s lawyer and father is that there should have been a non-lethal alternative available. This is a valid point that requires debate. It does NOT require rioting. In fact, rioters make the point for law enforcement to maintain a stronger stance in regards to weapons. These people put their lives in danger on our behalf every time they answer a call. We’ve all seen reports of police being ambushed while on seemingly non-violent calls. Inciting a riot and torching a police vehicle to attempt to make the argument for non-lethal weapons is counterproductive.

The only people who should be blamed for Scout Schultz’ death are Scout Schultz and anyone who pushed him to this point. The police did not do anything other than the exact job they’re required to do. An unstable man with a weapon was making aggressive and unpredictable moves towards them. Do the rioters believe they should have allowed him to stab one of them first before responding?

Outrage Erupts After Armed Non-Binary Student is Shot by Cops | Nichole Cooper, Louder with Crowder

https://www.louderwithcrowder.com/outrage-armed-non-binary-shot-cops/This whole incident was unfortunate, but no abuse of power took place. Cops plead with the man to drop his weapon. He did not. He continued to approach them in a violent manner (armed with a weapon) and now he’s dead. Leftists should focus their energy on mourning this death, not using it to whack police or virtue signal.

Reactions

Final Thoughts

Today, there seems to be an instant jump to violence and riots to “honor” dangerous people who are killed by law enforcement. The rioters love to prop up their “innocent” victims and persecute the police who protect them daily. It’s time for these responses of violence to end. Peaceful protesting and public awareness may not be as newsworthy as violent riots, but it goes much further towards establishing dialogues that can solve the actual root problems Americans face.

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

Published

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

There’s a trend that’s been quietly, consistently rearing its ugly head against the President of the United States and his supporters since before the 2016 election. We’ve seen it among unhinged journalists, virtue-signaling celebrities, and Democratic politicians. We’ve seen it manifest in the ugliest form of hatred – the common hate-hoax – and it’s doing more to divide America than the source of the perpetrators’ anger.

They hate President Trump. They hate the people who got him elected. The hate the idea of making America great again because as much of the MAGA agenda comes to pass, they’re learning they’ve been wrong the whole time. I know first hand. I’ve been proven wrong myself.

No, I’m not a hate-hoaxer, but I’ve been against the President to varying degrees for over three years now. Before he officially won the GOP nomination in 2016, I opposed him because I felt he would do too much damage while delivering only a moderate amount of good policies. He wasn’t as bad as John Kasich or Jeb Bush, but we had Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul as better candidates. Nevertheless, he won the nomination, prompting me to spend the final leg of the 2016 election without a horse in the race. I didn’t like the idea of Trump being President, but under no circumstances did I want Hillary Clinton to be President, either.

100% crowdfunded news. Please help.

After he won, I became a cautious but hopeful watcher. While we worked on alternatives to bring limited-government federalism to the forefront of local, state, and national politics, I took a case-by-case stance on the President himself. When he did well, I praised him. When he did poorly, I criticized him. This stance has remained until this day, though there have been times when I was more supportive or more critical, depending on the policy discussion of the day. Tax and bureaucratic cuts – good. Tariffs and bump stock bans – bad. The recent cave on the border omnibus – very bad. Most foreign policy moves (leaving Iran deal, leaving Paris accords, moving embassy to Jerusalem) – very good.

Unfortunately, it seems many on the left have been unwilling to recognize even the remotest possibility anything the President is doing is good. What’s worse is that some have been so aggressive in their desire to prove their point that they’ve pretended to be victims for the sake of getting their “victims’ perks” of love and affection from their peers while painting anyone wearing a MAGA hat as bigoted and hateful.

Thus, the anti-MAGA hate hoax was born and it’s been so prominent over the last two-and-a-half years, one must wonder how mainstream media and Democrats became so gullible that they fall for it every single time.

Andy Ngo at Quillette put together a comprehensive list of hate hoaxes that leftists have perpetrated to paint the President and his supporters as racists. It’s absolutely stunning when you see the magnitude of the hatred – THEIR hatred – that makes them willing to tell bald-faced lies just to prove the movement they oppose is as bad as they think it is.

I’ve had ideological disagreements with nearly every presidential candidate (let alone every President) since I became an adult. There’s nothing wrong with disagreement as long as one is willing to not be blinded in one direction or the other. There are plenty who blindly follow President Trump to approximately the same degree that supporters blindly followed President Obama. The herd mentality seems to have become the way of the political world in America for our last two presidents. But that blind devotion is simply an annoyance. The blind hatred that drives people to commit these hoaxes is far more dangerous.

It’s likely when the details are fully revealed regarding Jussie Smollett’s hate-hoax, it was driven more by a narcissistic desire to advance his career rather than pure hatred for the MAGA crowd or the President, but obviously the latter hatred played a role in his decision-making process. This type of action is never acceptable. We have enough outrage in America. There’s no need to manufacture even more for false reasons.

It’s time for the unhinged left to stop assuming every MAGA supporter is racist and start asking how the actions of those on their side of the political aisle drove massive amounts of people to support President Trump. Perhaps then, they’ll realize the hatred is coming mostly from them.

6 illegal aliens, rivals of El Chapo, arrested in massive drug sting

6 illegal aliens rivals of El Chapos arrested in massive drug sting

A massive drug trafficking operation by law enforcement in North Carolina resulted in the arrests of six illegal immigrants with connections to a Mexican drug cartel. The organization, which is a competitor of the Sinaloa cartel made famous by its jailed leader, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was operating along the east coast pushing drugs ranging from cocaine to methamphetamine.

Oscar Rangel-Gutierrez, Raul Rangel-Gutierrez, Regulo Rangel Gutierrez,  Rodolfo Martinez, Rigoberto Rangel-Gutierrez and Francisco Garcia-Martinez were arrested and tied to the Jalisco New Generation cartel.

“Members of the investigative team believe — based on wire intercepts, surveillance and other facts discovered from the investigation — that Oscar and Regulo transport illicit proceeds, derived from the sales of narcotics, when they travel from Myrtle Beach to Charlotte,” according to federal court documents, as WMBF reported.

My Take

What makes this so concerning is that Jalisco New Generation cartel is known to operate mostly out of Tijuana on the west coast of Mexico, shipping drugs along the porous southern California border. For them to be reaching all the way to the east coast is telling of their influence and reach.

Unfortunately, leftists believe in Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s solution, which is to stop drug trafficking by making it harder to cross the border at the ports of entry.

Progressives often refer to statistics that show most drug busts happen at the ports of entry, ignoring the obvious fact that fewer drug traffickers are caught when they breach the border away from ports of entry.

Sex offender Anthony Weiner released from federal prison early

Sex offender Anthony Weiner released from federal prison early

Disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has been released from federal prison ahead of the completion of his 21-month term for good behavior. He is currently in a Residential Re-entry Management facility in Brooklyn, New York, where he will remain until his full release in May.

He will be on probation for three years after his release and must register as a sex offender.

My Take

Something tells me this isn’t the last we’re going to see from Anthony Weiner. He’s not only a sick, sexual pervert, but he’s also a narcissist who can be easily made to believe the people want him back in public office.
