Mike's Blog Round Up
July 23, 2015

Help! POLICE!!!

After all of this time, so many high-visibility incidents, I think it is proper time to honestly ask the question: Just what do our Police Departments think they are 'protecting and serving' by continuing to kill unarmed Citizens?

It is perfectly right for Citizens to be fed up. We are perfectly correct in our expectation to have already seen positive changes Nationwide. We are exactly right in being vocal and angry that it continues. On with the Round-Up...

Greg Fallis starts us off with a rousing game of "'Dead or not dead!' It’s America’s game!" (Note: This is not a funny subject, I think Mr. Fallis' approach to his topic is proper.)

Ian Welsh offers Sandra Bland's situation as Authority's perceived "Right To Abuse."

Echidne Of The Snakes gives a very good walk-through of the events at the traffic stop.

And finally, The Rude Pundit says, "#AllLivesMatter Is a Bullshit Hashtag, and a Useless Phrase."

Bonus Track: No More Mister Nice Blog covers the "alleged" editing of the video, and how "Law Enforcement Always Knows How To Create Reasonable Doubt."

Round up by Monkeyfister (@Monkeyfister1 at Twitter). Send tips to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com with “For MBRU” in the subject line.
