Senator compares cops to terrorists
« on: March 27, 2015, 06:33:45 am »

The world knows this.  Finally somebody says it.

A Nebraska state senator has stated that the epidemic of police brutality in America is a bigger threat than terrorism.

 Senator Ernie Chambers, a longtime outspoken official in the state, was speaking at a hearing on gun ownership. Chambers stated that the only reason he would want to own a gun would be to protect himself from the police.

 In comments that have angered critics, Chambers said "My ISIS is the police," reasoning that "the police are licensed to kill us -- children, old people."

 Chambers, Nebraska’s longest-serving state senator, pointed out that you do not have to look beyond the US to find a bigger daily threat to the lives of Americans.

 "I wouldn't go to Syria, I wouldn't go to Iraq, I wouldn't go to Afghanistan, I wouldn't go to Yemen, I wouldn't go to Tunisia, I wouldn't go to Lebanon, I wouldn't go to Jordan, I would do it right here," Chambers said, urging "Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do daily."

 Indeed, in the past three months almost 300 Americans have been killed at the hands of police, according to estimates. That figure amounts to three people killed by cops every day.

Recent reports drawn from U.S. Department of State figures indicate that Americans are 58 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist.

There are moves to make this senator "apologise" for his comments, some have taken offence, I have no idea why.  People cannot just go on pretending that these things are not true.

Nothing can "make him" apologize. They might be able to force him to resign somehow, but he'd only apologize if his postion was actually more important than the truth. Who knows.....

Ernie is the longest serving state senator for a reason.  He has a strong base of support.  Should he die before the next election, he would be reelected.  Chicago isn't the only place where the dead vote more often than the living.

And he has been speaking of the abuses of the ptb for decades.  He even occasionally speaks truth.

If this latest tirade is recent, then I wouldn't be surprised if he were Fostered. Then they'll be able to say "See? See? Even he needs the Cops."
