The Vulture of Critique Mystique

You see a lot of things at Vulture of Critique that you're not likely to find anywhere else, like this treatment of chicanery in the oil bidness that goes far beyond the usual liberal condemnation of Dick Cheney for making money. Elsewhere, corruption in the Drug Enforcement Agency. But this piece especially interests me, not only because it links back to me.

African-Americans versus USA Police: the case of how 37-year-old cop Joseph Weekley lethally shot 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones

Ex-Army posts a lot of stuff about how African-Americans behave badly. I don’t know. I’m not there. I don’t know what the USA is like.
Clarification: My primary concern is not the fact that poor blacks tend to kill each other in large numbers. My primary concern is that the USA is descending into a downward spiral of totalitarianism – thus violent-and-organized USA police worry me more than violent-but-unorganized USA blacks. This post is not meant to downplay or justify black violence in the USA.
I’m not a big fan of Jared Taylor, but his case seems fact-based in this specific instance.
However, I would like to call your attention to a different case: the 7-year-old girl named Aiyana Stanley-Jones.
The trigger man was 37-year-old Officer Joseph Weekley, who both drove the armored personnel carrier and led the team through Jones’s door. Wielding a ballistic shield and an MP5, the 14-year DPD veteran claimed that he lost control of his weapon, but not for the reason one would expect. He blamed Aiyana’s grandma.
Officer Weekley’s novel defense was that Mertilla Jones rose up as he entered the apartment and “reached for his gun.” In his version of events, contact with grandmother caused him to pull the trigger of his submachine gun, subsequently striking the sleeping girl.
Mertilla Jones gave a very different account. She said that she had been dozing in and out of sleep on the couch when she was startled by the shattering of glass and the deafening incendiary device hurled through the window. Ms. Jones claims she reached to protect her granddaughter and made no contact with any officer, according to the Detroit Free Press.
“They blew my granddaughter’s brains out,” said Ms. Jones. “They killed her right before my eyes. I watched the light go out of her eyes.”
Officer Weekley was no stranger to controversy. Previously during his six years on the Special Response Team, he had been named among several officers in a federal lawsuit regarding no-knock raid in which officers aimed rifles at small children and shot two family pets in 2007.

Now, everything Vulture says there is no doubt true, and there are many other cases like it. But they are not unrelated to the fact of Blacks behaving badly, plus hordes of immigrants, legal and illegal, also behaving badly, either because they want to, or don't know any better. Just about any government has totalitarian tendencies. It's human nature. But governments that preside over halfway civilized people have to come up with reasons to move towards totalitarianism that are fairly acceptable to those people. And what better way to convince the populace that we need brutal, militarized police than to cultivate a violent, lawless underclass that seems to require suppression by such police? Such an underclass is easy to create. Just put people on a few generations of welfare, with bonuses for any any all forms of dysfunctional behavior and lifestyle, with bigger bonuses for having illegitimate kids. Then make it as hard as possible for good, honest cops to keep order in the underclass neighborhoods by doing everything you can to avoid seriously punishing lawbreakers once the cops have caught them. Then have the whole MAG (Media, Academia, Government) constantly telling members of that underclass, especially the nonWhite and immigrant parts of it, that none of their problems are their fault, but are caused by other people, especially White people, and that rioting and looting are "understandable." And add that because of racism, the underclass can't hope to get ahead, and might as well stay on welfare and commit whatever crimes seem appropriate to the situation.
Do all that, and then try to recruit good, honest cops. A vicious circle, brought to you by generations of smarmy, know-it-all, White liberals.
