The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition


This is a few weeks old, but it seems like a harbinger of things to come, or at least the leading edge of an all-too-disturbing trend. Cops in NYC are pelted with water and garbage and assaulted in the subways and probably much worse stuff that de Blasio is hiding. And law enforcement all across the nation are either passive in the face of resistance to their lawful authority (Portland, Berkeley, etc) or are vilified, often with no justification for their actions.

As many of you know, I am no defender of law enforcement behavior, and at least part of this growing disrespect for the law is a direct result of the growing militarization of the police, and their self-imposed isolation from the communities they guard.

Whether the response by the Oregon State Police is appropriate remains to be seen, but part of me is smiling. The idea that Oregon State University will be better served by the Kampus Kops rather than a presumably professional organization is laughable.

State Police to pull out of Oregon State after being attacked over arrest: "You're on your own now"

The agency made the announcement Wednesday, just two days after state police officials released the arresting officer’s body cam video footage showing an Oregon State Police campus officer’s arrest of a black, female student.

The video itself was in excess of 30 minutes and showcases everything from the cited traffic related infraction and subsequent arrest for failure to comply with a lawful order.

Obviously the race-obsessed lunatics who scream "You will respect ma color authoritah!" when they get parking tickets will be emboldened, as will the Antifa types and BLM and a host of others who revel in any breakdown of civil society.

Another rational note in the cacaphony of lunacy that is Oregon is the Clackamas County Sheriff telling the city of Portland to pound sand, that his deputies will not be responding to routine calls within the city, because it's just too nuts!

We are already pretty close to colander masks and assless chaps in Portland, so this might not even be noticed, but then again, eventually the protesters and professional rabble-rousers will attack the wrong (or right) person, and there will be a few masked antifa scum bleeding out on the street.

Then it will get sporty.
