Sacramento Bang Bang


cjones03312018

An unarmed black man was shot and killed in his grandmother’s backyard by police in Sacramento. The White House says Donald Trump hasn’t commented on it because it’s a local matter. Apparently, Trump is afraid to comment because he believes the young man was shot by a porn star.

On March 18, two police officers shot 22-year-old Stephon Clark, and on the video, you can hear one of the offices say they can’t find Clark’s gun. They couldn’t find his gun because Clark didn’t have a gun. Shortly after the shooting and the comment, the officers turned off the audio on their body cameras.

Demonstrators have blocked access twice in the past week to Sacramento Kings basketball games. They crashed a forum at city hall which made the mayor abruptly cancel the meeting. Who let all these black people in here? Maybe if your cops didn’t shoot an unarmed man 20 times in his grandmother’s backyard then you wouldn’t have to sit through disorderly meetings.

Police brutality against African-Americans didn’t start or end during the Obama administration, but at least Obama addressed it. Now, we have an administration that chooses to ignore it, and in some cases, encourages police violence. We might have to disrupt a lot more than a couple of basketball games.

Black lives don’t just matter in Sacramento. This is a national issue. Stephon Clark should not have been a victim of police brutality and his name not be forgotten.

It might get loud.

Here’s the video.

Nazis Got The Blues

I hate Illinois Nazis.

I had the Peter Gunn Theme in my head the entire time I was drawing this, despite watching The Big Lebowski at the same time. Maybe I should have been watching another movie but none come to mind.

A bunch of neo-Nazi shite nationalists held a rally in Sacramento and they were lovingly greeted by a group of counter protesters. Within 20 minutes at least seven people had been stabbed, nine were hospitalized and many more suffered bruises, scrapes and cuts. Liberals and Nazis can’t get along in a free exchange of ideas. Who could have seen that coming?

The Traditionalist Worker Party, who the Southern Poverty Law Center identifies as a hate group, advocates for a white nationalist homeland. They did have a permit for the rally.

While a lot of conservatives along with Donald Trump openly encourages violence, liberals usually give the impression they’re pacifist. Not always. One of the groups confronting the hate group is called “By Any Means Necessary.” I’ve seen a lot of posts on social media lately where liberals “jokingly” wish death and violence upon conservatives. If it wasn’t so lame I’d click the frowny face button. Hell, I read words from Bernie Sanders’ supporters wishing very nasty things to happen to Hillary Clinton.

It amazes me that people don’t realize that violence, or even condoning violence, doesn’t help their argument. It never helps. They always find a way to justify it, usually with the weak excuse that their target is a special case and deserves it.

No. What people with bad and horrible agendas deserve is to have their ideas rejected and live a full and healthy life full of grumpiness and hatred while they watch the world progress around them. In your face, haters!

While Jake and Elwood might want to chase Nazis into the Calumet river with a souped-up 1974 Dodge Monaco with a “440 Magnum” engine with an inoperable cigarette lighter that was previously a Mount Pleasant police car that Elwood purchased at an auction after trading the previous Cadillac Bluesmobile for a microphone, I doubt they’d actually want to physically hurt anyone.

Even Illinois Nazis. They really hated Illinois Nazis.
