Is there something in the water that makes people act like lunatics?!? Every time I turn on my computer to watch the news, I see nothing but sheer insanity on the part of some people, that and a strong overwhelming sense of entitlement when it comes to interacting with the police.
Oh excuse me, I meant when it comes to assaulting and attempting to murder the police. Also, it appears that a ‘large percentage’ of one racial demographic is just flat-out out of friggin’ control and they think they can do whatever they want and that they do not fear the consequences of their violent, uncivil and unlawful behavior.
If you want my opinion, it looks to me as though all of the hard work, tears and blood spilt in the 1950’s and early 1960’s to obtain basic Civil Rights, never happened at all. All of Martin Luther King’s work and his personal sacrifice have been disrespected and forgotten by a certain segment of the current generation of African Americans…and that is what breaks my heart.
I sat in front of my television and watched Dr. King give his “I have a dream” speech, but the way certain people today act, it’s as though that never happened at all.
The real culprit here is the entire Democrat party, they are the ones stoking hatred and racial division within this country, they are the ones’ that are allowing our major cities to descend into chaos, lawlessness and racial animus. I am glad that the man seen in the video below wasn’t killed, but this kind of violence against anyone, especially the police is unacceptable.
People (no matter what the color of their skin is) when they break the law, need to be properly prosecuted and punished accordingly.
Here is a written description of what you will see in the video below:
Middletown, Connecticut — On Saturday, August 12, 2023 at approximately 6:33 a.m., the Middletown Police Department received a complaint of excessive noise and breaking glass at 195 Liberty Street, Middletown. Detective Karli Travis was working a routine shift in patrol uniform and responded to the call in a marked police cruiser. Detective Travis parked her police cruiser at the intersection of Liberty Street and Park Place and approached the subject premises on foot.
Near 195 Liberty Street, Detective Travis was confronted by 52-year-old Winston Tate. Tate was in possession of a hammer. Tate charged at Detective Travis and knocked her to the ground, hitting her multiple times with the hammer. During this struggle, Detective Travis discharged her firearm multiple times, striking Tate.
Tate, wounded, retreated into 195 Liberty Street. Additional Middletown officers arrived and surrounded the premises at 195 Liberty Street. Tate was taken into custody as he exited the basement hatchway.
He was treated by medics and transported to Hartford Hospital by ambulance. Tate was released from the hospital late on August 14, 2023. Detective Travis was also injured during the incident. She was taken to Middlesex Hospital and has been treated and released. The judge set Tate’s bond at $850,000. He is due back in court on October 3, 2023.
Here is the video of that encounter, you will have to sign-in to YouTube to watch it, but I must warn you, it contains very graphic violence and may not be suitable for some viewers:
