DR3 :sleep:

Nobody on the left is proposing this, and in fact there is nothing they oppose more than the White people being left alone part. This is something we attribute to them. What the modern left / democrats want is black criminals running rampant, which is definitely not what the Dixiecrats wanted.
...I guess you missed how some leftist universities have started having segregated graduations, segregated dorms, etc?

There very much are some leftists pushing this as the 'solution' to racial conflict problems.

There are certainly leftists pushing for vibrant only spaces.

The only White only space they would tolerate is a struggle session.

I mean, that looks like a 'good' shoot to me, but I'm not an expert by any means.
I will rag on police everyday and any day, but really the big concern here is that the cop needed to be more mindful of what's behind the target he's shooting. Because he easily might've killed the woman being attacked with a knife as saved her.

Like...Cop lucked-out and ended up not hitting her, so that's good. And that also comes with the chance that it wasn't luck but good practice on the cop's part (which I honestly doubt a little but IS a possibility) which allowed him to make the shot without hitting the girl being attacked.

With a girl as big as her, and how small the girl in pink was, he had a much higher chance of not hitting the other girl then hitting her.
Also, in some cases, you can't always choose the perfect scenario and you may end up having someone in the other side and hope for the best

I get your concern, but That officer took a risk in a highly volatile situation in which another girl's life was in imminent danger.

His quick thinking, fast reactions and good aim saved that girl in pink's life.

He's a hero

Depends on what type of ammo he thought he had loaded.

If he knew he had frangible ammo, and a larger target like that girl, he probably figured overpen chance was minimal.

No.
That is not what goes through the officers mind.
It is "She is stabbing someone i need to stop her."

Well yes that too, obviously.

I just wanted to point out that what ammo the cop thought or knew he had loaded could also affect his confidence in not hitting the other girl when he fired.

As far as I know, no officer thinks about the ammo they have. They are given ammo and the use that ammo. The type they use isn't on their mind. You should never think about the ammo in that situation. You just have to be able to say that the reason you shot and the bullet hit the person on the other side of the target, that it was the only way to stop the suspect

If someone is being stabbed, it could be a fraction of a second that determines the difference between life and death. If the cop has hesitated for a moment to decide whether to taser or shoot, had used some method that took longer to incapacitate, that one moment would have been long enough for the blade to penetrate into an artery. That policeman had to act instantly to save a life and he did.

If you’re stabbing someone with a knife and you get killed as a result, your death is on you.

War on Terror, global recession, housing crisis, and global pandemic notwithstanding, millenials and zoomers are clearly spoiled by all of this Helicopter Parenting.

As a parent, it's my recommendation if you want your kids to grow up, dump them off at a local foster home and teach them to sort out their problems with a good ol' knife fight.
Should we institute Battle Royale as part of the curriculum then? :LOL:

Charles Cooke of the National Review is at least a lurker here.

Where the hell are you hiding you Brit bastard? I am arrogant enough to believe only I had that thought when reading this story in the entire world and you stole it from me. So much for party unity... if only The Sietch was as popular as that right wing rag The National Review, those clicks they are getting could be our clicks!

Agreed. But won’t do much good if they’ve been indoctrinated.
Kids of single mothers and/or from broken homes are far easier to indoctrinate. With only the mom around, and maybe not such a good one at that, the state and the media step in to fill the vacuum. That happens across the USA with families of all races, but inner city blacks have such outrageously high levels of single motherhood that the problem is exacerbated.

I harbour personal doubts that she actually would have stabbed the other girl but obviously it's kind of unknowable. The cop certainly couldn't and shouldn't have been considering such though, he had to honour the threat, he tried to use words as much as he could, and when it didn't work he did the right thing.

Im honestly surprised you said that, that said now that you have your formerally woke allies will turn on you if they ever find out you put those ideas to paper.

So you know your kind of stuck with us now.
