Saturday links

Once again, links keep finding me (though more slowly than they did when I was online all the time, so some of these are a few days old) …

  • Mohamed Noor, the cop who murdered Justine Damond, has been sentenced to 12.5 years in prison. (H/T F)
  • Scot Peterson, the school resource officer who cowered in safety while students died, has been arrested and criminally charged.
  • Eric Peters writes of human veal calves and the end of America’s teen romance with cars (and the freedom they represent).
  • Not quite as absurd as the Vatican waiting 500 years to apologize to Gallileo: The NYPD apologizes for the 1969 Stonewall raid. (Tip o’ hat to DT)
  • Another little-known bit of history from Samuel B. Fuller, pioneering black entrepreneur who made a fortune and advocated enterprise as the cure for racism.
  • The free market, a vast network of benevolence.
  • The Nazgul, in a decision apparently based on fairydust, establishment fear, and boundless support for even the baddest of bad cops, has made it easier for police to arrest you for your opinions or your activism. (H/T DT)
  • Speaking of fairydust, Seattle’s liberals would rather not face the inevitable consequences of their beliefs and their electoral choices.
  • This week marked the 15th anniversary of the misnamed Killdozer rampage. The dozer killed nobody except, indirectly, its builder Marvin Heemeyer. But it sure did send a message to the cruel, high-handed politicians and bureaucrats of Granby, Colorado.
  • Okay, here’s a sweet, or bittersweet, one. “I hated my neighbor” until one life-changing event forged a friendship.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Scot Peterson is getting railroaded. Oh don’t get me wrong, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy – with the possible exception of Scott Israel. I won’t be marching in his defense. But except for the perjury, when were any of the things he’s been charged with actual criminal offenses?

    So your average cop can get away with literal murder if he doesn’t offend anybody important on the arbitration board, but in this one case dereliction of duty is good for an effective life sentence? Pull the other one. Peterson is being thrown under all the buses because he’s a very unsympathetic character and doing so distracts from the obvious question of who decided that a fat old burnout should be left as sole protector for a school full of kids.

    Article titles re-written for reality:

    “Minnesota judge believes murdered woman’s life worth only US$176,718.75”
    (12.5yrs prison x 52wks/yr x 5days/wk x 7.5hrs/day x $7.25/hr).

    “Peterson: 7 counts child neglect, 3 culpable negligence, 1 perjury. Probation expected”.
    (just be glad HE wasn’t the one shooting kids because he “feared for his life”.)

    “NYPD: “OOPS, sorry. We bad.”
    (fake politically-correct apology, from “7th largest private army in the world”).

    “Nazgul: If you think the US Police State is tyrannical now, you haven’t seen ANYTHING, yet!”

    Seattle residents: “Not in MY backyard ‘yer don’t! Let those homeless rot in the streets!”.

    “Killdozer Anniversary: Police say they’re not worried. “We got bazookas, now!””

    Commentary: If (((libtards))) and (((government officials))) at all levels continue their escalation of oppression of The People, Heemeyer’s actions will pale in comparison to the $hitstorm that’s already started brewing for that (((Parasite Class))).

    Thanks Claire, for that last link. It reminded me of a man I once wanted to be. I still don’t know how to be him.
