Police Prepare For Unrest

Police Prepare For Unrest
By Alexander Bolton

Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.

Public safety officials said in interviews with The Hill that the election, which will end with either the nation’s first black president or its first female vice president, demanded a stronger police presence.

Some worry that if Barack Obama loses and there is suspicion of foul play in the election, violence could ensue in cities with large black populations. Others based the need for enhanced patrols on past riots in urban areas (following professional sports events) and also on Internet rumors.

I’ve been a part of many elections but there was never a need for
extra police actions. I wonder why it’s necessary in this election ?

    You wonder why after many elections that extra police are needed for this election?? Boy if that comment does not ring of blatant racism. The only reason this horrible rumor is circulating around the web is because deep down inside White America is racist. Every now and then no matter how hard they try this racism bubbles to the top and comments and fear of black America rioting are talked about. America has seen many Black candidates lose an election. Where were the riots? America has seen black leaders get killed. Where were the riots? Police brutality on a daily basis against black Americans. Where are the riots? Please do not bring up the Rodney King verdict. The riot was contained too a 10 block black neighborhood in one of the worst slums in Los Angeles. Where crime, drugs and crime are rampant on a daily basis. The entire world was in a rage over that verdict yet no riots anywhere but a 10 block neighborhood.
    I am a white American and I have seen the racism against blacks on a daily basis. They cannot even hail a taxi-cab in NYC. Drive a car without being pulled over for DWB ( driving while black) because of profiling regualtions. I would not want to be Black today.

    Patriot, if you want to know what true racism is, it’s Obama getting
    90 to 94% of the black vote. The extra police is not a rumor going around the web. The police departments of several cities, put out
    that report.
    I would think they know better than you or I, whether or not to
    expect problems.

    The site for the report is listed below the article (Here it is again)

    You say ‘black candidates have been killed’ I seem to recall white candidates being killed also. Ever hear of Robert Kennedy ?

    Now about police brutality, don’t tell me you haven’t heard of police brutality against whites also.
    What do you do, use ‘White Out’ when the victim is caucasian ?

    I see it in cause and effect. If a policeman tells you to STOP then
    you better STOP whether you’re black or white..

    You say ” I am a white American and I have seen the racism against blacks on a daily basis” Why are you hanging out with racists ? You
    also say that “They cannot even hail a taxi-cab in NYC” Well seeing
    as most all the cab drivers are in N.Y.C. are Arabs or East Indians,
    don’t be a racist and blame whites. As for DWB, I’m white and I’ve
    been stopped and I’ve seen many more whites stopped than blacks.

    You’re the typical liberal. You separate people by color. I live in a
    color blind world. Maybe you’d be better off if you did too.

    Why do the neo-cons continue to attack with lies and innuendo. I dont hang out with rascist. Yet I have still seen rascim. DWB is real, you may have been pulled over a few times. Our Black friends have it happen on regular basis. As too the NYC taxi drivers being mostly Arab or East Indian if that is not a rascist comment then I dont know what is. How often do you see vidoe on TV of a white individual being beaten like Rodney King was. Or shot for taking his wallet out of his pocket like Amadou Diallo. Or brutally raped with a plunger by a policeman. These things do not happen to our white friends now do they? Please stop trying to justify these criminal acts by the people we pay to protect us as the fault of the victim. It is deep rooted rascism that creates this hatred. I do not see color. I see human beings that have been brutalized in America for well over 200 years. Yes you are color blind….people of color dont seem to exist for you!!

    Patriot I actually feel sorry for you. When I said most of the cab drivers in N.Y.C. are Arabs or East Indians you say that is racist. No Patriot that is a well known fact. Now if you think stating someones’ nationality is racist, you need psychiatry to heal you of this guilt you have and apply to everything that happens.

    Why do you stay in this country if it’s so unjust ? Why do Liberals stay in a country they have such contempt for. Could it be because it’s the greatest country in the world. Have you ever said that ExPatriot ?
    Try saying it and meaning it, because it’s true. It may gag you at first but if you say it every day, you’ll start to have an easier time saying it and maybe someday you’ll realize it’s true and you’ll learn to love it.
