“I want to start moving on constructive actions that are actually going to make a difference,” he said during his evening press conference in Poland when he was asked about the Dallas attack.
Those actions, he said, would be based on the recommendations of the panel that he picked after the 2014 street riots in Ferguson, Missouri. The panel offered “practical concrete solutions that can reduce — if not eliminate — the problems of racial bias,” Obama said.
The dramatic shootings are an opportunity to push that agenda, Obama said. “If my voice has been true and positive, my hope would be that… [the panel] surfaces problems, it frames them, it allows us to wrestle with these issue and try to come up with practical solutions,” he said.
Obama began touting the panel’s recommendations in March 2015. The report, titled “President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing Report,” was published in May 2015.
The report urges the federal government to federalize police training and practices, via the use of federal lawsuits, grants and threats to cut federal aid. So far, Obama’s deputies have cajoled and sued more than 30 police jurisdictions to adopt federal rules in a slow-motion creation of a national police system, similar to the slow-motion creation of a federal-run health-sector via Obamacare.
Obama also used the press conference to insulate his federalized police program — and his allies in the Black Live Matter movement — from popular rejection after the five police were murdered by the anti-cop African-American in Dallas.
“The danger is that we somehow think the act of a troubled person speaks to some larger political statement across the country — it doesn’t,” Obama insisted.
Like every other recent crisis involving police and black victims (Furgison, Mo., Baltimore, Md.) this case is now shaping up to be something entirely different than first portrayed by the MSM and the immediate witnesses.
It now appears that the officer in question stopped the couple because they met the description of a couple that had recently engaged in an armed robbery. Tapes and recorded radio traffic between the officer and dispatch paint a different story... the officer pulled over the couple for suspicion of Armed Robbery. Upon approaching the vehicle the Officer radios in that the deceased had a gun in HIS LAP... not concealed. The Officer apparently ordered the man (more than once) to take his hands off the weapon and did he not... resulting in the officer fearing for his life and firing in what may well have been self-defense..
Why hasn't the MSM verified the girl friends story regarding the stop... that the deceased in fact had a concealed carry permit... did he? How about the stop being for suspicion of Armed Robbery and the position of the gun in his lap... that frames the event under a totally different light. There is video that supposedly shows something which appears to be a weapon in his lap... Why has the MSM failed to review the video and too enhance the object in the man's lap? Did this deceased individual have a criminal record... how about the girl friend?
This event may end up like the Ferguson and Baltimore events... justifiable use of force by the police. The MSM, the President and others have all piled on before ALL the facts were known... and we still don't know with any degree of certainty what happened. However, I am of the opinion that the officer would not simply murder this man... especially, given the fact that it was on video and with recent problems in policing with making stops involving Blacks.
The current administration may have NOTHING to do with cast votes. Criminal corruption can arrange results in elections just like I have witnessed so often in the bananna republics of Central and South America. I have watched landslide wins in elections south of our borders and only one candidate. There may be more than one on the ballot, but with the one candidates people counting the votes, it will not matter how the people vote. The investigation of voter fraud is done by the same people counting the votes in the first place. This is the situation in the USA at present to my understanding. Your vote once cast goes to the hands of a criminal that interprets what your vote means by their own political stance. Our elections are long ago corrupted and perverted and any investigation is done by those that did the voter fraud themselves! The current administration is not above voter fraud since murder is so very useful to them. Our disarmament is seen as the final blow to the USA that will destroy our nation and put us underfoot of islam. The corrupter in chief is also the terrorist in chief and this nations worst enemy. Too late, the poor pawns that believe in him will see that it was all a lie as they kneel at the mass burial pit where they will be shot for outliving their usefulness. Communist manifesto says to blame the victims and Obamas first move is to investigate the victims. I back the police in my community and nationwide if they are honest and true to their oaths. That BLM group gets funding and orders from CAIR and I am sure many of their members do not even know that. Obama has funded CAIR and the muslim brotherhood with OUR TAX DOLLARS! We are paying to murder our own police by having an enemy in office!
The SOB sees' everything as its the cops fault. The Lying SOB caused all the Race problems on purpose for one reason to stir up a hornets nest of unrest. Now he has cops killed on a regular basis and wants to further hamstring their ability to enforce the law. The Bastard.
The article is mostly correct. obama's rhetoric against the police and his support of the racist group black lies matter have helped to spark and inflame thoughts that the police are out to kill black men. The black panthers and black lies matter groups are nothing more than a black version of the KKK. obama's coddling and support of these groups does indeed push the thoughts of troubled people that agree with him to become radicalized and pursue actions such as the shooter in Dallas. The best thing that obama can do for the next seven months is to go play golf and stay away from microphones and public venues.
The act of a 'troubled person'? Define troubled person. When Obama uses the term 'troubled person', he is attempting to not only make excuses, but to minimize a horrific act. It was not an act of a troubled man, even if his thinking is troubling. It was the act of a rational well plan full of hate to kill white people, especially white cops. That is far more than a troubling act. I would bet if it was a white Christian man, Obama would send drones to the Vatican to take out the Pope. Both sides of our cheeks are red and on fire. The neck muscles must be cramping from turning them so often. If this doesn't stop, someone is going to take out their great, great, great grandfather's 'hoody' with the big red cross, and put it on.
Thank you Veronica, I appreciate being appreciated. As provocative as it is, it's also logical. There is this familiar youtube video of a young school boy just trying to get through the school day only to be bullied by some kid looking to impress others. Every opportunity the bully would get into the school boy's face yelling where spit would fly into the school boy's face. He would turn and run away. The bully making body jesters as if he was Arnold Swarzenager. One day the boy had enough and turned not away, but towards the bully, grabbing him by the neck in one hand and between the legs in the other hand, picking him up and slamming him to the ground. The sound of him hitting the ground caused everyone watching to go silent for a few seconds, only to burst out in cheers. The black community, which includes Obama, is bullying the White, Hispanic and even many thinking for themselves in the black communities. In the past, the blacks would do their riot thing and eventually all will be forgotten. Now there is the BLM, the New Black Panthers....and Obama, the first black president. How much longer do you think those communities would continue to run away? There is only so many times good people can turn the other cheek.
the guy in the white house is part of the black lives matter and the New Black Panther
Wussification? Great word....it's mine now...lol.
