The legal right to self defense, the right to defend with lethal force whenever an individual is threatened, or their family, or their country, that is granted to all American citizens has been nearly eviscerated in the American populace’s’ psyche. To try to counter that decadence 36 states enacted various forms of a “Stand Your Ground Law.” Such laws and the individual’s legal right to carry weapons for self-defense, the ability to “stand your ground, threatens the already weak and effeminate, delegitimized police and their masters, the ruling oligarchy represented by their various employers. That conflict was graphically illustrated in the fatal shooting of Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr., a 68-year-old African-American Marine veteran in White Plains, New York. Another situation just like the Fortuna police shooting of Jacob Newmaker. Both killings were racially motivated; one “black trash” and the other, “white trash.”

If you don’t think something like this “home invasion” by the police couldn’t happen in Eureka, you’d better think again. Our homes are the one place, even the latest Supreme Court has ruled, that we not only should “feel” safe, but be safe and secure. This fixation on protecting police health and safety at all costs including the general public jeopardizes everyone. It was reported in the March 25, 2012, Times-Standard: Shots fired near G and 11th streets in Eureka – Notice this excerpt: ”By that time, the police were there and had set up a perimeter,” he said. “There were three officers with assault rifles checking out the church, and so I cleared out of there.” Are we to believe that the use of “assault rifles” in a residential neighborhood does NOT threaten everyone within range. Is the civilian population in Eureka reduced to being collateral damage now? I always understood the reason the police were issued handguns and shot guns was to PROTECT the general population from the penetrating power of a high-powered “assault rifle.
Here are a couple of links to local blog Humboldt Herald about this issue, one in particular on how the local county Board of Supervisors worked with both the Eureka Police Department’s acting Chief of Police and the Humboldt county Sheriff to collaborate on a quick-fix law to deal with Occupy demonstrators. The comments show the local thinking. Russia? Latin American Banana Republic and Pooping on Liberty.
The Way of the White Man
So goes “The Way of the White Man’s Rights” – Doesn’t look too good, does it?
A local blogger puts it this way in his latest posting: Nothing About Witchcraft? This is his take on South Carolina Republican’s “rights” to exclude certain types, including “And obviously you can’t be a contraceptive-advocating college student slut!” – His obvious reference to Sandra Fluke.
Here’s a good example of “witchcraft” wizardry at its best.
