City Sponsored Racial Profiling?
“Specifically, we were discussing the most recent column (Arbitrary Law vs. the Rule of Law- No Contest, the Guardian, August 2010) regarding the City attorney considering a new DWLS 3 policy, by which officers would submit their citations to the City Attorneys office rather than directly to the court, where their attorneys would review the citations and then determine which drivers, ‘merited punishment ‘ According to the City Attorney’s Office this determination would be made, largely, based upon an individual’s race.
The officer pointed out, ‘Isn’t that racial profiling?’At that moment three things occurred to me: Yes it is, why didn’t I talk to you before I wrote that last article, and last, why the hell didn’t I think of it? Seems obvious, but perhaps we’re being so inundated with this extremist, progressive agenda, nationally and locally, sometimes we miss the obvious.
Yes, by Jove, it is racial profiling, indeed-and in fact. Don’t you love the irony? After many years of the City and community activist groups unsuccessfully attempting to prove that Seattle police officers are guilty of racially profiling its citizens (and non-citizens), the City offers proof that it’s the one racially profiling, and further, it even wants to pass laws and implement policies to support it….”
Continue reading Officer Pomper’s Op-ed here.
For those attacking Officer Pomper, get over it. Freedom of speech is not selective. It is hypocritical of those to attack Officer Pomper for exercising his right to free speech, yet accept racial profiling all in the name of social justice. H/t The Blaze.
Besides, last I heard, racial profiling was illegal? Now we learn that Progressives are SELECTIVELY applying racial profiling all in the name of social justice and to pursue their own agenda.
So what is next excusing rapists, muggers and murderers for their heinous crimes because they grew up on welfare and in the projects, all in the name of social justice? What the hell is wrong with the people living in those communities? I can clearly hear shouts of joy emanating from many in Black and Latino neighborhoods. I wonder just how understanding they will be of racial profiling when one of them or their loved ones becomes a victim of thugs and said thugs are set free as a result of SELECTIVE racial profiling based on their upbringing and backgrounds. Of course, by then it is too late to demand justice in the name of the law.
If communities accept this sort of racial profiling, then it becomes an open and shut case and the blame clearly falls at the feet of those living within these crime burdened communities.
Law enforcement will not waste precious man-hours responding to crimes committed in Black and Latino communities; and in the end, an insignificant punishment will result in crime rates dramatically increasing.
Many communities will return to days similar to those at the height of the crack epidemic when drug lords took Black and Latino communities hostage.
Lastly, if this sort of profiling is allowed to continue and crime does increase in Black and Latino communities, how long will it be before Marxists declare these communities ungovernable justifying the need to build a fence around these communities that would keep the thugs and the people living within these communities under lockdown in a police state?
Warning to budding socialists: Be mindful of what you ask.
Recommendation: Yes, do SHUT UP AND BE A GOOD LITTLE SOCIALIST, HYPOCRITE!

≈ Comments Off on 15 year-old girl gets 15 to 36 weeks sentence juvenile detention in Seattle bus tunnel beating case
Her name is Stewart Baker. She assaulted a young woman in the Seattle bus terminal earlier this year while Seattle bus terminal security guards looked on or went about business as usual. She received an insignificant punishment, 15 to 36 weeks in a juvenile detention center.
Stewart Baker is now 16 years old and considering she has already served 135 days, she will be on the streets any day now, bolder and meaner than when she entered the detention center.
Personally, I am fed up with bullies and street punks who roam the streets of America committing depraved acts such the one committed by Stewart Baker.
Thirty-six weeks simply does not cut it, which means that the system will have failed Stewart Baker’s next victim because rest assured, there will be one. Let us just hope her next victim lives through the encounter.
Our penal and judicial system must send a message to these idiotic, indoctrinated young punks walking the streets and riding the subways and buses.
I have a suggestion; Baker has already served 135 days of her sentence out. How about making her spend the balance of a 36-week sentence in the Gulf cleaning the beaches? There are already convicts working on the cleanup detail, what’s one more?
“A 15-year-old Seattle girl whose notorious videotaped beating of another girl forced new security measures inside the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel was sentenced Monday to between 15 and 36 weeks in juvenile detention.
The girl, who is not being identified because she was prosecuted as a juvenile, was given credit for 135 days she’s already served. The state Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration will determine when she is released.
The teen was initially charged with first-degree robbery, however the King County Prosecutor’s Office said it could not prove the motive. The girl pleaded guilty to second-degree assault earlier this month.
A surveillance video of the attack showed the 15-year-old defendant following another then-15-year-old girl, Aiesha Steward-Baker, into the tunnel on the evening of Jan. 28, according to the charges. The girl pushed Steward-Baker, who retaliated.
In the ensuing brawl, Steward-Baker wound up on the ground, and the defendant repeatedly stomped and kicked her in the head, chest and neck. Several males with the defendant could be seen on the video grabbing Steward-Baker’s phone, purse and iPod, according to court paperwork.
The Seattle Times general does not name juvenile suspects or the victims of crimes, but Stewart-Baker, who is now 16, was identified after she appeared at a news conference and on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America.’
The tape of the attack spawned outraged because several uniformed private security guards stood by and watched the beating, one from only a few feet away, without interfering. The private firm, Olympic Security, said its officers were forbidden from becoming involved in physical altercations.
Metro, Police and the King County Sheriff’s Office also were criticized.
Six suspects, ranging in age from 15 to 20, were arrested in connection with the attack. Those defendants, as well as their friends and relatives, say the 15-year-old defendant and Steward-Baker had a long-standing dispute before the brawl. Court records show Stewart-Baker has two prior arrests, and one conviction, for an unrelated assault.”
I repeat 15 to 36 weeks is a slap on the wrist.
