Crazy People Are Dangerous

Minneapolis has proved itself a lucrative source of income for Ben Crump, who got his share of a $27 million settlement on a wrongful death claim in the George Floyd case, so now he’s back for another bite with the case of 20-year-old Andrew “Tekie” Sundberg. It is unknown what led to Sundberg’s mental health […]

The Logical Conclusion of ‘Social Justice’

When mobs rioted in Minneapolis last year, the chaos and destruction became a fundraising opportunity for the Minneapolis Freedom Fund (MFF), an organization dedicated to keeping criminals on the street. Simply put, MFF bail suspects out of jail, no questions asked: The non-profit Minnesota Freedom Fund says this system of bail is “unjust,” and that […]

‘Start This War They Keep Asking For’

What is the goal of the Black Lives Matter movement? To make it impossible to arrest and prosecute criminals? Because that would seem a logical inference from recent events in Minneapolis: Burning, rioting, and looting broke out in Minneapolis on Friday night after deputies shot and killed a wanted felon who fired on them.

CHAUVIN GUILTY

Despite the big win for the “social justice” crowd, it can be expected that there will be nationwide riots tonight.

The chief defended […]

George Floyd and ‘The Riot Ideology’

The best book on the failure of liberal urban policy is Fred Siegel’s The Future Once Happened Here: New York, D.C., L.A., and the Fate of America’s Big Cities. Siegel devotes much analysis to the “riot ideology” whereby organized violence (or the threat thereof) is used to intimidate officials into doing the bidding of “community […]

What Was George Floyd Doing?

Most people seem to believe that Derek Chauvin is going to be found guilty, simply because of the emotional content of the testimony, and I suppose they’re right. Today, the prosecution called George Floyd’s girlfriend as a witness, and she boo-hooed during most of her testimony, which was characterized in the media as being about […]

Criminal Dies in Minnesota Shootout

It’s always heartwarming news when cops shoot a white criminal. CNN won’t notice and there won’t be any riots — no “say his name” hashtags on behalf of Dominic Lucas Koch, who was 27 when he died of multiple gunshots after leading police on a 40-mile chase in Minnesota. We’ll get to the events that […]
