But the usual disorder turned even scarier on the second day of the pool season this June. The pool manager had had the temerity to ask swimmers to clear the pool for cleaning, its water having been rendered dangerously dirty by people jumping in with their clothes on or refusing to shower before entering. Yuck. Can you imagine the stink of that filthy place? In response, up to 30 young men went on a rampage. They overpowered two armed guards and six pool workers, punched the manager as he was trying to escape to his office to call 911, and threw the manager, a lifeguard, and locker attendant into the water. This was not a case of adolescent hijinks: The men were in their twenties and thirties. They were simply unable to tolerate any authority over their own.Violent angry animals. These are the sort of people the Apologist Daves apologize for.The Lib Media (along with others like FOX) are responsible for keeping that black racist idiot Jesse Jackson in the spotlight. If they didn’t seek him for comment and always cover his inane and outdated offensive BS he’s fade away into obscurity where he so belongs.
A nearby Los Angeles County pool facility saw an even more egregious outbreak of violence last Saturday. Three men tried to rob a 60-year-old man who was sleeping outside the pool at the Ted Watkins County Park, which borders Watts. They beat James Hurst unconscious with a blunt object; he died the next day in a hospital from his injuries. In reaction, the county will station eight additional county police officers at pools in South Central Los Angeles ten hours a day through the summer. Why should tax dollars pay for any of this? The answer is to shut down the watering hole. It is striking how quickly elected officials in the inner city call on the police when things go wrong. These are the same “racial profilers” who, according to Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and a host of local loudmouths, pose as much threat to the black community as criminals. Turns out that the threat from the allegedly racist police disappears from view whenever they are needed to protect inner-city residents from the real danger in their midst — -their uncivilized selves.
The pool attacks demonstrate yet again how pathetically irrelevant Jackson’s style of “civil rights” leadership is. In his criticism of Obama, he said that the Democratic presidential candidate should be speaking not about absent fathers but about unemployment, the mortgage crisis, and the number of blacks in prison, according to the New York Times. Let’s see: The chances that the thugs who took over the 109th Street Pool or who beat James Hurst to death would show up every day for a job on time and not fight with their supervisor are exactly zero. The mortgage crisis was fueled in part by pressure to lend to low-income communities under the Community Reinvestment Act. And the number of blacks in prison is a function of their astronomical crime rates — in 2006, blacks constituted 39.3 percent of all violent-crime arrests, 56.3 percent of all robbery arrests, and 34.5 percent of all aggravated-assault arrests, though they are less than 13 percent of the population. The black prison rate may not be high enoughThe fact is, the only thing that can stop the lethal anarchy in poor black neighborhoods is personal responsibility, starting with the duty of men to raise the children that they sire. The young men who committed the recent Watts attacks didn’t need a mortgage, a job, or a get out of jail free card, they needed self-control and respect for their fellow human beings. There is very little the government can do to make up for those deficits.Jackson has called on the “collective moral responsibility of the government” to solve the black problem. Great article, G.
Kinda hard to spin and apologize for these folks, eh Dave? (snicker)Maybe it's not their fault? Maybe they just need a hug and some more government programs wasted on them. Maybe it's all because of Slavery? (snicker again)
