parallels: Rodney King and Haditha

Some people will not recall the clamor and commotion over a home video that showed Rodney King getting his butt kicked. (1991)
Seems Rodney was driving a car with expired tags on the plate. He didn't want to get stopped because he was out on parole, but he was using drugs and probably out of the area he was restricted to.

So, Rodney ran. He was chased by a California Highway Patrol night shift car, with a husband-wife team of officers. Rodney ran into Los Angeles. You do not run in Los Angeles, because, as Chris Rock says in a popular video, " If the police have to chase you, you know they are bringing an ass-kicking with them".

Somehow, Rodney got stopped. In the part the MainStreamMedia DID NOT SHOW YOU, the three passengers were calmly handcuffed and led away. Rodney came out fighting. Rodney was "Dusted" (Using PCP--Yeah, I know the media bobbleheads said the hospital found no drugs in his system. BS!. You look at the hits he took, and was able to keep fighting. Try hittingYOUR knee or ELBOW sometime. Count how many seconds pass before YOU can move).

Police Procedure says you DO NOT try to box or wrestle with a resistant arrestee. You use your baton. Which is what LAPD did.

BUT-from the publicity that followed:
---Rodney was not charged, but was given over a million dollars.
---The CHP Officers were disciplined, as was their Sergeant, their Lieutenant, and their Station Commander.
---The LA Prosecutor bowing to Race Pimps indicted the police officers for " Assault under color of Authority". A State Court Jury found them " Not Guilty".
---The Race Pimps prompted a riot.
---George Bush 41 was about to run for a second term. Pandering to the Race Pimps, he sicced the FBI on the LAPD officers for "violating Rodney's Civil Rights". ( NOTE: IT is NOT double Jeopardy, as several police officers around the US have found out. You can have the case dismissed in State Court, but if someone up there decided you need to be done, the FBI can and will charge you with violating Civil Rights)
--Politically-Correct Administrators in CHP HQ put into effect that if an officer saw what he/she thought was excessive force, that officer was to:
1. Tell the Offender to stop the use of force, and
2. File a written report of observations of the incident (Rat out your fellow or allied law enforcement officer) There were stiff penalties listed for failure to follow these rules.

IN Haditha, the Marines were attacked for the umpteenth time. They were under fire, as usual, from a bunch of Islamo-Facists. If you are taking fire, you fire back at where it is coming from.
Naturally, Rahim, the Raghead, had herded women and children in there, thinking, "Ah-the Marines will not shoot in here--there are women and children". The afterthought of Rahim the Raghead was" Hey --if they do shoot in, we can claim a massacre".

Rahim has done what attorneys in the US have done to police officers: Make it a "Damned if you do-Damned if you do not" situation.

Personally, I'm sick of people with the last name of Bush throwing soldiers and cops to the wolves to please Race Pimps and Mexicans.
