    Micheal Bloomberg Video Proves Why Gun Control Is Racist With Video He Tried To Block

    "Ooh ooh, Bloomberg's such a racist!!!"
    Bloomberg's a piece of gum stuck to a streetwalkers shoe, but what he said is neither racist or untrue.
    13% of the US population commits 50% of the crime.
    If you want to crack down on crime, you go after the 13% that are doing it.
    If it was a group identifiable because they wore red shirts, it wouldn't be racist.
    As we've seen in Toronto, carding works, stopping carding results in increased crime.

    If Bloomberg tried to block a pro firearm ownership video, his attempt to get the American Democratic nomination would be over.
    However, Bloomberg is as anti-firearm ownership as the rest of the American socialists. His campaign clearly repeats the oxymoron "gun violence" and he created "Mayors Against Illegal Guns", sued out-of-state gun dealers, accusing them of illegally selling handguns used in NYC crimes, etc., etc.

    Carding is as racist as racism gets. It doesn't do squat.

    Peel's Principles #9. The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with them. Carding targets problem areas, based on crime stats. If the problem people that it nets happen to disproportionately represent some particular ethnicity/race/creed/(insert your favourite label here), then yes there may be deeper issues that need to be addressed. Police aren't social workers, no matter how much 'adult babysitting' they are called upon to provide. Preventing the identification of these issues, or preventing police from focusing finite resources on problem people, results in the problem people assuming correctly that their actions are free from consequences. Meanwhile politicians grasp at one-size-fits-all 'solutions' that penalize the non-belligerent folks, to give the appearance of doing something. This is doomed to fail on logic alone, as well as being a very inefficient use of our tax dollars. Those are things to be pissed off about.

    ”Mike Bloomberg belittles farming, factory jobs as having less 'gray matter' in video I could teach anybody, even the people in this room” to be a farmer, he said, calling agriculture “a process."

    “You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn,” he said.

    He spoke similarly of factory jobs as mechanical repetition requiring no brain power.

    In spite of all of man's grandiose achievements, he owes his continued existence to six inches of topsoil and the fact that it rains.

    Advocates from Black Lives Matter and local Indigenous groups have been pushing for proof that a contentious tool of policing actually does more good than harm. They say carding hurts police relationships with minority communities, who feel targeted when repeatedly stopped and asked for information when they’ve done nothing wrong but have been hanging out or loitering in high crime zones.

    Coun. Moe Banga city councillor for Ward 12 of Edmonton who himself is a visible minority said he’s seen the benefits first hand and he’s satisfied.

    “This is a very valid tool for police. Abandoning this would just be a big loss to the community,” said Banga, city councillor for Ward 12 who worked as a police officer for 24 years.

    On Thursday, Banga appeared on Edmonton Talk Back, a Postmedia interview show hosted through Facebook Live. He took questions on Edmonton’s anti-racism initiative, which he co-sponsors, his personal experience with racism and on police carding.

    “Let’s say you’re responding to a noise complaint — hollering and hooting in the middle of the park. Even if I don’t have grounds to arrest people, I’m going to get your name and address, why are you here, ask the simple questions,” he said, explaining how carding helps. If later, it’s discovered there was a sexual assault in that park, that information in the police data base becomes a tool.

    Police carding or street checks is an issue that gained attention in recent years when the local chapter of Black Lives Matter demonstrated that Edmonton police unequally check people from minority communities.

    According to Edmonton police statistics analyzed by Black Lives Matter, black people are three to five times more likely to be stopped by police than white people while attending to a dispatch call. Indigenous people are six to 10 times more likely than the general population, and Indigenous women are up to 10 times more likely than white women to have their information collected and filed in a police database in Edmonton.

    Black people and and certain minorities like Indigenous people are also more likely to be convicted of crimes in the community and fill a larger proportion of those doing time in prison. This situation is viewed as racist and there needs to be a more equal proportion of all community members stopped and convicted of crimes or being processed through the criminal justice system. People tend to assume because you are black you are more likely involved in crime while out late at night on the streets or in high crime areas.

    They say that damages the police relationship with fragile minority communities. The figures are reported as a range because Black Lives Matters had to make assumptions around population growth while waiting for next census information, said Bashir Mohamed, co-chairman of the policing file for the group.

    Edmonton police conducted 22,969 street checks involving 20,689 people in 2016. Police contend they are usually only asking people they find for their identification or other information while investigating a compliant or dispatched call and the type of situation, location or time of the incident causes them to feel the need to note the people approached in those situations in case of needed follow up investigations.
