Walt Blackman of Snowflake — on future legislation.   Blackman initially denounced the Black Lives Matter movement on KFYI's "Conservative Circus with James https //www azcentral com/story/news/politics/arizona/2020/06/05/black-gop-legislator-criticism-blm- terrorist/3149272001/ CBS News 2020/06/23   Minneapolis police union head [Bob Kroll] defends calling Black Lives Matter a "terrorist organization" As protests continue across the country calling for police reform, the head of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis is speaking out about his controversial comments about Black Lives Matter.

I think about a third of the people are from out of town here to make the city burn," said Justin Terrell, executive director of the Council for Minnesotans of African Heritage, to AP.  "It is just putting black people in a crossfire not just between fascists and anarchists – but putting us in a crossfire with the national guard," Terrell added.   However, clashes between demonstrators and the police have been escalating, making it difficult for law enforcement to verify the identities and the motives of the participants.   However, President Donald Trump has solely called out far-left group Antifa to be held accountable for looting and vandalizing elements in the protests, without providing evidence.https://news.cgtn.com/news/2020-06-02/Who-are-the- extremist-outsiders-appropriating-the-MLB-movement-QZFPK1Dxmg/index.html https://news.cgtn.com/news/2020-06-02/Who-are-the-extremist-outsiders-appropriating-the-MLB- movement-QZFPK1Dxmg/index.html Officer dot com 2016/06/02  Police Union Head Calls BLM 'Terrorist' Group Lt.

Jul 19, 2016 - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani got himself in hot water recently when he claimed that the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is racist. Daily Breeze dot com 2020/06/13  Torrance Councilman draws outrage with remarks about black lives matter https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/06/13/torrance-councilman-draws-outrage-with-remarks-about-black- lives-matter/ Red State 2020/06/16  “Black Lives Matter” Is Preying on America’s Belief That Black Lives Matter by Brandon Morse https //www redstate com/brandon_morse/2020/06/16/black-lives-matter-fake/ Excerpt:  But the concept of black lives mattering has an institution attached to it that many Americans can’t get on board with. Black Lives Matter the institution isn’t looking for equality, they’re looking for support and power for the Democratic party. We know that because the official BLM donation page goes straight to ActBlue, which is tied directly to the Democratic party.BLM the institution doesn’t seem to want to solve the problem. They are, by their own admission, not interested in coming together with law enforcement bodies to solve the problem and will reject any attempts or events that do so.In fact, not only do they not want to solve the problem with the policing community, they want the policing community disbanded or dissolved.  The institution of BLM doesn’t even stop there in terms of insanity. Its “what we believe” webpage detailing what it believes descends into radical hard-left positions that you’d usually only find on SJW Tumblr pages. This includes dismantling the patriarchy, uplifting black trans people, and dismantling the nuclear family:  Your voiced disagreements with BLM the institution can easily be framed as disagreement with black lives matter the concept, and this is abused by many activist groups, media figures, and politicians. It’s effective. It not only silences a lot of dissent from the population, but it also pressures Americans to blindly support whatever BLM the institution says they should. Next thing you know, these intimidated people are voicing their support for an organization that, in truth, is support for a concept. It’s a dirty trick.Likewise, many Americans who don’t engage in politics are completely ignorant of the difference between the concept and the institution, and their support is framed as support for the institution. It’s an equally dirty trick.BLM the institution, along with leftist politicians and media figures, are essentially playing on the people’s fears of being isolated and ridiculed, on top of American’s natural approval for fair play and equality, to empower political agendas and promote divisive narratives that make certain groups look bad.The faster Americans understand this fact, the faster we can separate the wheat from the chaff. The rejection of problem causing institutions that disguise themselves as common sense concepts can’t happen soon enough. The faster we do this, the faster we can actually get around to solving the problems that plague the black lives that really do matter. https //www redstate com/brandon_morse/2020/06/16/black-lives-matter-fake/ GEORGE FLOYD KILLING This is the case which spurred this section on Black Lives Matter; it was because of all the BLM front pages news coverage of local protests. Who was killed: George Floyd When: 2020 May 25 Where: Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Note: Minnesota’s biggest cities including this one, have seen a huge black population increase.  It’s not the old Midwest many of the older people in the USA used to know.  A large Somalian immigrant came in; some areas look more Muslim now.  A number of Islamic extremist terrorists have come from these Minnesota big cities.  So far there are no signs Floyd was linked to black Islamic groups; he was a Texan transplant who was originally born in the southern United States. What officers were involved:  Floyd was killed by a white cop named Derek Chauvin with three other white cops assisting.  According to the Minneapolis Police Department’s policy and procedure manual, neck restraints that are meant to control are allowed only against "a subject who is actively resisting." Neck restraints that are designed to knock someone unconscious are reserved as last-ditch measures for dealing with aggressive resistance, per the manual. --from Politifact-2020/05/29 Floyd’s family has called for murder charges to be filed against the officers, as has Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who said May 27 that he "saw nothing that would signal that this kind of force was necessary" and that the knee- to-neck technique "should not be used, period." View of Police Factor:  A counterfeit bill issue does not warrant killing a suspect.  Since Floyd was handcuffed and also lying face down on the street he was not dangerous.  There was no need for extra force.   What is more, he was begging.  George Floyd should not have been treated like this.  Wikipedia George Floyd Killing https  kipedia org/wiki/Killing_of_George_Floyd#:~:text=Two%20autopsies%20found%20Floyd's%20death,and%20abetting%20second%2Ddegree %20murder. Excerpt:  On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill.[1] Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down in the street, begging for his life and repeatedly saying "I can't breathe".[2][3] A second and third officer further restrained Floyd while a fourth prevented bystanders from intervening.[4][5]:6:24 During the final three minutes Floyd was motionless and had no pulse[6][7] while Chauvin ignored onlookers' pleas to remove his knee, which he did not do until medics told him to.[8]:7:30 All four officers were fired the following day, after videos made by witnesses and security cameras became public.[9][10][11] Two autopsies found Floyd's death to be a homicide.[12][13] Chauvin was initially charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter,[14] to which was later added second-degree murder; the three other officers were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.[2][15][7] https  wikipedia org/wiki/Killing_of_George_Floyd#:~:text=Two%20autopsies%20found%20Floyd's%20death,and%20abetting%20second%2Ddegree %20murder. Articles Axios Giuliani rails against Black Lives Matter, Antifa and De Blasio in RNC speech https://www.axios.com/rudy-giuliani-rnc-speech-151780bd-6c7d-4947-892a-4b08ecf68778.html Excerpt:  President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani took on the "unprecedented wave of lawlessness" that has swept across the U.S. at the RNC Thursday night, accusing the Black Lives Matter movement and Antifa of turning peaceful protests into "vicious, brutal riots."   Why it matters: As mayor of New York City, Giuliani was famous for championing a controversial record of crime-fighting, including policies like stop-and-frisk. He tore into his successor Bill De Blasio for allowing crime to rise in New York, and accused Joe Biden of being a "Trojan horse" for progressives "waiting to execute their pro-criminal, anti-police, socialist policies." https   //www   axios  com/rudy-giuliani-rnc-speech-151780bd-6c7d-4947-892a-4b08ecf68778.html The Federalist 2020/07/03  If You Really Believe Black Lives Matter, Stop Supporting Black Lives Matter  By Ben Weingarten  (disclosure by PF: there are signs there might be a Jewish or Israeli bias in this article, but certain points seem worth considering.  This author does clearly indicate in the article that he feels BLM is antisemitic.  I highly agree with his sentences in the excerpt below and have highlighted them in yellow.  I feel he has covered the right points) https  //thefederalist com/2020/07/03/if-you-really-believe-black-lives-matter-stop-supporting-black-lives-matter/ Excerpt:  BLM poses a cleverly designed dichotomy and demands people choose a side. It defines the world as bifurcated between racists and antiracists, and commands that you must stand with the latter and attack the former. But the antiracists are themselves racists. People like Robin DiAngelo cast whites as evil on the basis of their skin color, and call for them to spend their lives atoning for their inherent sins as determined by their pigmentation.  This is to say nothing of the fact that their proposed “remedies” for societal racism — namely compensating for past discrimination with present retributive discrimination — would destroy any notion of true liberty, equality, or justice. This is intentional, as their objective is to heighten racial strife. It has devolved almost to the point of parody: White women are paying nonwhite women to browbeat them over dinner about their alleged transgressions.  People of good faith who reflexively support Black Lives Matter and “antiracism” should know they are affirming movements collectively rooted in and devoted to Marxism, Jew hatred, violence, racism, social discord, and the undermining of our founding values and principles.

The Two Don’t Appear Linked So Far. Perry Bacon Jr https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/could-a-backlash-against-black-lives-matter-hurt-biden-the-two-dont- appear-linked-so-far/ Jews/Israelis-Warning about Biases   There is major Jewish/Israeli anti-Black Lives Matter activism afoot.  Several articles from them might be below.  Police Factor considers the Jewish input important, as we are likely to get information from that corner not available elsewhere.  However, we need to keep our objectivity about the Jewish slant.  It is possible things can and do go too far the other direction.  Israel has a lot at stake being a small country surrounded by a Middle Eastern dog house of antisemitic groups.  There are indications the Israelis have used torture, for example in southern Israel.  There are signs of Israeli anti-American activity even years ago (See USS Liberty).  We need the Jewish input for insights and data not normally visible in Big Brother Media, but we have to be careful the information is not more fake news.  We need facts, not exaggerations or lies.  The Israeli Mossad has a reputation for mafia-like ruthlessness; however, once again, much of the coverage comes from liberal news groups who have shown clear signs of being BLM supporters..  The fact many Israeli transplants to Israel over the years have come from what was once the Soviet Union, people who were inhabitants of that country for many years before its dissolution, means that old bad habits might be brought with them to Israel.  There can be an ongoing Russian connection in Israel which is dangerous to the United States, particularly after 8 years under the anti-Israeli Obama administration which largely isolated and alienated Israel from the USA.  During that vacuum era of greatly reduced Israeli-American relations, Russia could have swooped in.  The diaspora of Jews in America means we have a diverse group here.  Many different Jews are doing and saying different things.  It is impossible to lump all Jews together.  Even the ones who support Israel do so in different ways.  Jews who feel you are not being adequately sympathetic to their victimization under the Holocaust and ongoing antisemitism might attack you for not being loyal or sympathetic enough.  By maintaining some distance from their intentions, Police Factor tries to get at the root of the truth that is useful to fight Black Lives Matter while not getting sucked into a dysfunctional mindset by the most radical Jews/Israelis.  However, we do not want antisemitism in the United States and do want to acknowledge and deter cruelty toward Jews by Islamic Extremists and anyone else antisemitic.
