    Yes, the guy who wants to argue that a few black lives lost here and there to utterly unnecessary and pointless if not outright malicious police violence is an acceptable price to pay for the (extremely dubious) role the police play in preventing other homicides also thinks fucking Wendy's or something taking one on the chin to end said police violence is beyond the pale.

    The underlying moral logic here, that black lives are disposable but the profits of some scumbag, tax dodging corporation (who won't piss on any of us if we were on fire unless doing so positively affected shareholder value) aren't, is perhaps the most succinct demonstration of the moral bankruptcy of conservative ideology you could find outside of a Trump rally.

    Amusingly enough that subreddit had already been largely abandoned. Their new stomping grounds will likely be in the news and cause an influx of folks finding it.

    Probably why reddit finally banned it.

    One of the issues standing in the way of police reform is how hard it is to fire a police officer. It's a long, complex process and the unions will always-

    "Shootings across the city increased by 75% last month alone, with 424 shootings in June 2020 compared to 242 in June 2019, according to police statistics. Murders in Chicago rose by 78%, with 89 reported in June 2020 compared to 50 in the same month last year.

    In June, the city saw its highest number of gun violence victims in a single weekend this year.

    The city has already seen more than 300 homicides this year, blowing past the benchmark that Supt. David Brown challenged the police department to stay under in April."

    Happy now BLM?

    No, not happy as their aims haven't been achieved yet, dipshit.

    You keep making this point as if it's good. As if you're proud of having thought it up.

    This argument was stupid back in 2016, it was still stupid in early June when you brought it up again, it continued to be stupid when you tried it last week and it has not become any less stupid in the past seven days.

    The next time you try it, after you scour the news and find an unrelated trend that started at some point in the past but continued through June and go "eh, close enough", it will continue being stupid.

    Unrelated trend? What a reach. You can make the case that the additional deaths is "worth it" to combat whatever issues you see in policing but you can't make the case that the riots and unrest haven't contributed to the increase in murders and shootings. That's just retarded.

  18. #1248
    It literally says in your own article that shootings have been on the rise across the entire year not just in June, i.e exactly the same as when you tried this bullshit the last time.

    Even if that weren't the case, your argument that it's somehow BLM's fault that the police are shit at their jobs is dumb as fuck as well.

    It's really just a fractal of stupid and yet you're so proud of the idea you keep coming back to it over and over again.

    Look at the inflection point. How much was shooting up prior to June? Why the sudden increase in June?

  20. #1250
    There wasn't a 'sudden increase in June'. There was a sudden increase in May, which continued into June.

    May: 85
    June: 89

    Now that I've wasted a bunch of time looking up crime stats for Chicago because of your stupid nonsense, you can now explain to me how exactly whatever nebulous affect you think BLM was supposed to have on crime affects only gun violence, given that all other types of crime were down in Chicago?

    I dunno why you'd go to this trouble just to prove that BLM is making cops too scared to do their jobs properly, which just makes them seem like kinda whiny, pathetic cowards.

    Which they are, but Lewk supports the police so why would he want to prove that?

    Fair enough for Chicago but that isn't the only city that had upticks in June.

    Are you calling cops cowards who refuse to do their job whenever they face some consequences for screwing up? I'm going to stop teaching the next time I hear anyone criticize professors. That will show them.

    This discussion is predicated on the notion that the activity of cops somehow directly prevents murders, which is probably not the case (unless you count choosing not to murder people).

    So, what you're looking for is a way to link the BLM protests to a trend that sees a fall in every category of crime except shootings which rise, and it happens everywhere in the US except Chicago which experiences some kind of totally unrelated phenomena that starts a month earlier but which, by sheer coincidence, has exactly the same effect.

    Good luck!

    Nah, they are often getting instructions by politicos not to cause more negative press. At that point is the cop supposed to not follow instructions and still try to deter crime like the lone ranger? Mayor's (shitty ones) have specifically given police stand down orders when violence erupts.

    He already found a link. He saw what looked like "a pattern" to him. He's not one of those ivory tower academics who waste everyones' money proving what we already know while indoctrinating the county's youth to be liberals.

    Police: *Attempt to arrest a black man for jaywalking, end up murdering him*
    Mayor: "Go easy on the murder for a while, everyone's watching you"
    Police: "Well, I guess we'd better entirely suspend police operations. Everyone knows you can't do policing without murdering black people"

    This is no exaggeration whatsoever.

    After 4 years, Lewk still doesn't understand the BLM movement. And since AG Barr says "there's no systemic racism in the judicial system"....it's clear that many *white* people in power still don't understand.
