Congressmen Now Doing "Hands Down, Don't Shoot" Gesture in Congress

So obnoxious.

I wonder if that Bosnian ever attempted a signal of submission during his brutal murder by hammers.

Meanwhile, Obama vows "this time will be different" as far as government changes in the wake of Ferguson, even though nothing illegal happened in Ferguson.

President Obama on Monday announced executive actions to curb “simmering mistrust” between local police departments and minority communities, pledging that his push for more body cameras on cops and greater oversight of the use of military weapons by officers would ensure “this time will be different.”

Obama is calling for a three-year, $263 million spending package that would fund 50,000 new body cameras for police officers. That funding request must be approved by Congress.

I hope everyone gets behind the body-camera initiative, though I'm not sure what it's doing at the federal level.

Essentially cops are now policing neurotic schizophrenics in a mental home who will make accusations at the drop of the hat; we need the evidence.

The president will also issue an executive order calling on law enforcement agencies to better track the surplus, military-style weapons they receive from the government and bolster training for those using the the equipment.

...

"This time will be different," Obama said. "Part of the reason this time will be different is because the president of the United States is deeply invested in making sure that this time is different."

However, the president's actions would not halt the practice of supplying police officers with weapons usually reserved for military conflicts...

This was never a particularly serious issue, really.

I'm kind of proud of myself for staying off that bandwagon.

The president also announced a new task force to study community policing practices.

..

"When I hear the young people around this table talk about their experiences, it violates my belief in what America can be," Obama said. "To hear young people feeling marginalized and distrusted, even after they've done everything right, that's not who we are."

Yes. Michael Brown was marginalized and distrusted, even after he'd done everything right, including slamming a cop with a car door and grabbing his weapon.

But we like need to really examine our society to determine how this Gentle Giant wound up dead in August instead of dead in February.
