NYPD Chief Bill Bratton says Hiring Black Officers is Difficult: They Cant Pass Background Checks Because “So Many Have Spent Time in Jail”
SO WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT FOR POLICE FORCES TO RESEMBLE THE COMMUNITIES THEY PROTECT AND SERVE?
New York police commissioner Bill Bratton made a rather interesting comment when asked why more minorities are not hired as police officers to have police forces more resemble their minority neighborhoods and municipalities they serve. In a Guardian report, Bratton’s response was that too many non-white police recruits cannot pass the background checks and restrictions to the job because they have spent time in jail. in other words, convicted felons are automatically disqualified from the NYPD applicant pool, as well as anyone guilty of a domestic violence charge or who has been dishonorably discharged from the military. Bratton suggested that the stop and frisk program was to blame. Really, when did Bratton become such a liberal tool?
So what a are we supposed to do, lower the bar and allow felons to become police officers? I guess they would already know they law of the land of the jails, (sarcasm intended).
Hiring more non-white officers is difficult because so many would-be recruits have criminal records, the New York police commissioner, Bill Bratton, has said.
Police departments, responding to widespread protests against several high-profile police killings of black men, are boosting efforts to recruit more non-white officers. But budget restrictions, strained relations between police and minority communities and, according to Bratton, a history of indiscriminate policing tactics that disproportionately target black and Latino men complicate the department’s goal of racial parity.
Bratton blamed the “unfortunate consequences” of an explosion in “stop, question and frisk” incidents that caught many young men of color in the net by resulting in them being given a summons for a minor misdemeanor. As a result, Bratton said, the “population pool [of eligible non-white officers] is much smaller than it might ordinarily have been”.
UPDATE I: But speaking to CBS2, Bratton said, “We are making a mountain out of a mole hill. The Guardian report was incorrect and we are demanding a retraction.”
Bratton was quoted as blaming the “unfortunate consequences” of an explosion in stop and frisk incidents.
He also blamed a strained relationship between police and minority communities.
But speaking to CBS2, Bratton said, “We are making a mountain out of a mole hill. The Guardian report was incorrect and we are demanding a retraction.”
Bratton said he made the comments, but they were taken out of context.
The SCOTUS Reject Free Speech Appeal over Cinco de Mayo School Dispute Filed by 3 Students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, CA
The Supreme Court of Mexico rejected Cinco de Mayo school dispute appeal … T0o bad it was the Supreme Court of the United States … What happened to the Country I grew up in?
Reuters reports that the SCOTUS rejected the on Monday appeal and left in tact a lower courts ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the United States flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo. REALLY? So a school can tell American students in America to remove their American flag shirts because it would cause an incident at an American school. Honestly, what the “F” happened to this once great nation? Justice isn’t just blind at the SCOTUS, it also appears to be stupid.
Just curious, who thinks that the SCOTUS would have decided 180 degrees different if the school officials had asked the Mexican students to take off their shirts with the Mexican flag on it so not to insight a riot? Or if it were black students who were made to take off shirts that might cause an incident? Or if Gay-Lesbian students were forced to take off their rainbow shirts for fear of causing an incident? I think we all know the answer.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact an appeals court ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the U.S. flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo.
The court declined to hear an appeal filed by three students at Live Oak High School in the town of Morgan Hill, south of San Francisco. School staff at the May 5, 2010, event told several students their clothing could cause an incident. Two chose to leave for home after refusing to turn their shirts inside out.
The school had been experiencing gang-related tensions and racially charged altercations between white and Hispanic students at the time. School officials said they feared the imposition of American patriotic imagery by some students at an event where other students were celebrating their pride in their Mexican heritage would incite fights between the two groups.
What part that this is America doesn’t the Supreme Court quite not get? Only in America is it considered a bad thing to wear something patriotic. This is just pathetic. Unlike in Mexico, citizens are supposed to have rights in the United States. Supreme Court, that means all citizens, including white Americans.
Just so everyone understands, Cinca de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day, it celebrates the defeat of the French army during the Battle of Puebla in Mexico on May 5, 1862. Mexico’s Independence Day is on Dieciséis de Septiembre, but that doesn’t quite have the same ring does it? However let’s get real, today Cinco de Mayo has become more of an American holiday than a Mexican one giving folks the excuse to suck down some Margaritas and some cervezas like Negra Modelo, Dos Equis, Tecate or Corona.
Jamiel Shaw Sr.’s Son was Murdered By an Illegal Alien (Dreamer & DACA Recipient) Pedro Espinoza from Mexico in 2008 … Do Black Lives Really Matter, or Does It Matter Only If You are Shot By a White Person or White Police Man?
JAMIEL SHAW ASKS A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION THAT BARACK OBAMA AND ERIC HOLDER NEED TO ANSWER … “DO BLACK LIVES MATTER, OR DOES IT MATTER ONLY IF YOU ARE SHOT BY A WHITE PERSON OR A WHITE POLICE OFFICER?
Jamiel Shaw Sr. testified in front of a subcommittee Wednesday, chaired by Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). All should watch and take notice of what happened to Mr. Shaw’s son, 17 year old Jamiel Shaw II, who was violently gunned down by Pedro Espinoza in 2008. Pedro Espinoza is a member of the 18th Street gang, a DREAMer, a DACA recipient, and a child brought to this country by no fault of his own. Hardly the harmless and innocent people that Obama, Democrats and gutless Republicans have told us what DREAMer’s are. Espinoza was convicted and sentenced to death in November 2012.
However, this is greater than just a senseless killing. Below is a must watch VIDEO … Do black lives matter? Well, for Barack Obama, only when it fits his political agenda. If a black person is killed by another black person, and especially an illegal, even a gang banger with multiple arrests, the answer is probably not.
“My son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, was murdered by a DREAMer, a DACA recipient, a child brought to this country by no fault of his own. My family’s peace and freedom was stolen by an illegal alien from Mexico. He was brought here by his illegal alien parents and allowed to grow up as a wild animal.
He continued: “Some people believe that if you are brought over by no fault of your own that it makes you a good person. They want you to believe that DREAM Act kids don’t murder. I am here to debunk that myth.”
THIS IS A MUST WATCH VIDEO … DO BLACK LIVES MATTER? DO AMERICAN LIVES MATTER?
Jurors deliberated for less than 4 hours on May 2, before finding Pedro Espinoza, 23, guilty of 1st degree murder for the 2008 shooting death of 17-yaer-old football star Jamiel Shaw Jr. in Los Angeles. They have suggested that he receive the death penalty, reports NBC Los Angeles.
Three Minority Teens Arrested for Fatal Hammer Attack of 32 Year Old Bosnian Immigrant Zemir Begic in St. Louis … Police Claim Murder was not Racially Motivated
NOT RACIALLY MOTIVATED, OF COURSE IT WASN’T …
32 year old Zemir Begic was murdered early Sunday morning by three teens, two black and one Hispanic, as they bludgeoned him to death in the St. Louis with a hammer. The incident began as Begic was in his vehicle about 1:15 a.m. in the 4200 block of Itaska when several juveniles approached and began damaging his car. Begic suffered injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth and later died at St. Louis University Hospital. Three thugs, 17, 15 and 16 have been arrested and are in custody. The 17 year-old St. Louis thug has been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
But of course police are saying that the murder of Zemir Begic was not racially motivated. Of course it wasn’t [sarcasm intended]. Imagine what would be happening today if two white teens and a Hispanic beat a black man to death with a hammer. Al Shapton and the MSM would be chanting “hammers up”.
Police said Begic was in his vehicle about 1:15 a.m. in the 4200 block of Itaska when several juveniles approached and began damaging his car. Police said Begic got out to confront the juveniles, who began yelling at him and hitting him with hammers.
Begic, 32, who lived in the 4200 block of Miami Street, suffered injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth. He died at St. Louis University Hospital.
A 17-year-old St. Louis man has been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the bludgeoning death of a Bosnian immigrant.
Police say Robert Mitchell along with two other teens, both juveniles, attacked the 32-year-old man with hammers early Sunday. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. Mitchell and one of the juveniles are black and the other teen is Hispanic, according to police.
Barack Obama Wrote in his 2006 Autobiography, ‘The Audacity of Hope’ … An Influx of Illegal Immigrants Will harm “the Wages of Blue-Collar Americans” & “Put Strains on an Already Overburdened Safety Net.”
THE AUDACITY OF HIS OWN WORDS: BARACK OBAMA OWN WORDS REGARDING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND THE DAMAGE IT WILL CAUSE AMERICANS …
The below statements are not from Conservative or GOP critics of Barack Obama’s amnesty plan. They are not of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham or anyone at Fox News. They are in fact the words of Sen. Barack Obama in 2006 when he was running for president and penned his autobiography, ‘The Audacity of Hope’. Obama admits that such a large influx of low-skilled workers would threaten to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net. That was then and this is now, what changed? Obama wants to sign an executive order that would allow this to happen. So does Obama not care about black people? Blacks already have an more than double the rate of white unemployment rate. Does he not care about blue collar workers?
I wrote what, its so hard to keep the lies straight?
“There’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border—a sense that what’s happening now is fundamentally different from what has gone on before,” then-Senator Obama wrote in his 2006 autobiography, “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”
“Not all these fears are irrational.”
“The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” Obama noted. “If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”
Hey Hispanic voters, La Raza and the rest, did you read this … Obama also reveals that he personally feels “patriotic resentment” when he sees Mexican flags at immigration rallies. Hmm, is Barack Obama a racist?
“And if I’m honest with myself, I must admit that I’m not entirely immune to such nativist sentiments,” Obama wrote. “When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.”
BARACK OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!
According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.
- U.S. Economy added a pathetic 142,000 jobs in August, 2014
- The July payroll number was revised up from plus 209,000 jobs to plus 212,000 but June’s count was revised down from 298,000 jobs added to 267,000. Total employment gains those months were therefore 28,000 lower than what BLS originally reported.
- Black unemployment at 11.4%
- Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low, 92,269,000 not in work force.
- IRS Scandal Continues … Benghazi-gate scandal continues.
- ISIS on the move creating a caliphate, murdering innocents and beheading two Americans with a muddled, dithering and weak response from Obama.
- Obama, a disastrous conclusion that ISIS was the Jayvee, turns out it was Obama who is the rank amateur.
- Putin on the move … China on the move … ISIS on the move … Iran’s nuclear capability on the move Thanks to a weak Ditherer in Chief and the world no longer fears the US because of Obama.
- Obamacare is to a costly joke.
- Afghanistan and Iraq all but lost after the loss of so many brave American military souls.
- Amnesty for illegals.
The below average polling for Obama’s job approval is at 40.25% Approve and 54.25% Disapprove.
Reuters/Ipsos – 8/30 – 9/3: 38% Approve – 56% Disapprove (-18)
Gallup – 9/2 – 9/5 : 38% Approve – 54% Disapprove (-16)

The Polling Company … 63% of Hispanics & 57% of Blacks Say the Government is not Doing Enough to Enforce U.S. Immigration Laws
HERE’S A POLL THE MSM, DEMOCRATS AND PRO-AMNESTY REPUBLICANS WILL NEVER SHOW YOU …
CNS News reports the following TPC/WC poll that shows that an overwhelming majority, including Hispanics and Blacks, say that the government is not doing enough to enforce current US immigration policy. But the MSM, Democrats and pro-amnesty Republicans would have you believe that “amnesty” is the only way to deal with illegals already in the country. The poll also went on to say that 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” It would appear that legal Hispanics and blacks in America both agree that American jobs should be given to legal Americans. Hmm, think Hispanics and blacks realize that their already poor unemployment numbers and salaries are drastically affected by illegals?
Fully 63% of Hispanics and 57% of Blacks say the government is not doing enough to enforce U.S. immigration laws, according to the survey by The Polling Company, Inc. Likewise, 78% of Whites and 74% of all respondents want tighter border security.
What’s more, 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” About three-quarters of Whites (77%) and all respondents (74%) agree that the government has a duty to protect Americans from job competition by illegal aliens.
More than three times as many Hispanics and Blacks agree as disagree that “Americans who need work ought to have the opportunity to do the jobs that are currently done by illegal aliens”:
- Hispanics: 73% Agree, 21% Disagree
- Blacks: 70% Agree, 22% Disagree
- Whites: 83% Agree, 12% Disagree
- Total: 81% Agree, 14% Disagree
The youth labor force participation rate was highest for whites, at 63.2 percent in
July 2014. By contrast, the rate was 52.9 percent for blacks, 45.8 percent for Asians,
and 56.2 percent for Hispanics. For all four groups, labor force participation rates
were little different from last July.
The employment-population ratios for young men (53.6 percent) and whites (55.4 percent)
were higher in July 2014 than a year earlier. The ratios for young women (50.1 percent),
blacks (39.8 percent), Asians (40.8 percent), and Hispanics (47.0 percent) showed little
change from last July.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for adult women increased to 5.7 percent and the rate for blacks edged up to 11.4 percent in July, following declines for both groups in the prior
month. The rates for adult men (5.7 percent), teenagers (20.2 percent), whites (5.3 percent), and Hispanics (7.8 percent) showed little or no change in July. The jobless rate for Asians was 4.5 percent(not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.
Oh the irony, hasn’t the MSM reported that these kids were coming illegally to America to get away from the gangs, violence and murders?
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to welcome immigrant children who crossing the U.S. border illegally to the Killing Field of Chicago. What a joke. Chicago is one of the most dangerous and violent cities in the country and Rahm wants to bring vulnerable illegal children into that environment. Over this past weekend,23 individuals were sot, 22 were wounded and one killed alone. Wasn’t the point of why these children showed up and crossed the US border illegally to get away from the gang violence and murderous conditions of their countries? Chicago cannot take care of their current problems and they want to add to it. UNREAL.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to open the city up to more immigrant children crossing the border illegally, with plans to open up shelters in the city to 1,000 minors by the end of the year.
Mr. Emanuel’s office also plans to launch a “broad-based pro bono campaign,” using the city’s legal resources to council young immigrants
The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore,” Mr. Emanuel said in a statement, the Chicago Tribune reported Saturday.
“While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions,” he said. “We will do or part to ensure that these children are given access to services and treated fairly and humanely,” the Tribune reported.
But citizens in Chicago, one of America’s most violent cities, have claimed that the Obama administration is placing the plight of illegal immigrants above the needs of Chicago’s citizens.

ABC News/WAPO Poll Gives Barack Obama Poor Grade on Handling Crisis of Illegals Coming into the United States Over Mexican Border
Imagine that, President Barack Obama gets low marks on yet another important key issue.
A recent ABC News/WAPO poll gives Obama extremely poor marks on dealing with illegals crossing the US-Mexican border as only 33% approve of his handling of the situation while 58% of all respondents disapprove and 60% of registered voters. How could anyone agree with Obama’s handling of this when he thought going to a fundraiser in Texas was more important than seeing the crisis for himself, first hand?
It’s one of the hottest national debates this summer: What to do about the influx of unaccompanied and undocumented children from Central America who are crossing from Mexico into the U.S.
A new national poll indicates that a majority of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s short term remedy, but most give the President and his GOP critics in Congress a thumbs down on how they’re handling the crisis along the country’s southern border.
Rep. Gutierrez (D-IL) Shames Barack Obama For Not Visiting the Texas-Mexico Border … Is Like Not Visiting Sick Relative While Vacationing Nearby
Or playing golf for that matter … or pool.
OUCH, even Democrats are calling out Barack Obama for the absurdity of the president going to Texas for fundraisers and not visiting the humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexican border that he created. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) shamed Obama on CNN’s Crossfire and compared the president not visiting the Texas border, while fund raising in Texas to ignoring a sick relative in the hospital while vacationing nearby.
“I wish the President of the United States were going down and visiting the children and visiting the site tonight. I kind of think of, you know, if I were on vacation in Puerto Rico and my wife’s aunt was in the hospital and I didn’t go see her, I think her family would probably get together and probably say ‘You made a poor choice.’ It is important that he do that.”
Barack Obama, Too Busy to go to the US-Mexico border in Texas, but can play pool and yuck it up
