Re: Nonviolent Civil Resistance - The 3.5% Rule

*** Any time the water or weather is different from MyIdealizedOptimal™, should I not-violent back at them?
*** During a capsize or leak, am I supposed to not-violent as a way to fix the issue?
*** Pirates? Does not-violent reduce the number of throat-cuttings?

I'm at a loss here on the benefits to my cruise. Any help? I prefer Real-World rather than scholarly theory...

Was this supposed to be in the joke thread?

Nah. This topic generated multiple input discourse that's continued through four pages (so far). Over there, a single "joke" at best gets a few responses, and even my vaunted "George" series soon died. But THIS topic seems to have legs!

We now return to the topic at hand. Carry on

Hi, Tiger,
I grew up in Chicago--the most violent city in the US for gun shootings. I lived on the Northwest Side and never saw one act of gun violence by the police. My cousin lived on the Southwest side of the city and experienced the same lifestyle and safety. Our neighborhoods were safe and the police were respected. Our neighborhoods were exclusively White. The "gun violence" that exists/existed was on the South and West sides of the city were Ghetto areas with very high crime rates(burglary, rape, murder, robbery, car jacking) in exclusively African-American areas. So, when you make generalized claims ,as you have above, they must have a reference point so that readers do not believe that this is a widespread problem but rather one that is endemic to low income, minority areas where violence is a fact of daily life and the police must be ready for a worst case scenario every minute they are on the job. For those of us who have seen real combat in the military, we are acutely aware that any small mistake can end your life. This creates a super-sensitivity that people do not need or have in safe, non-violent situations and the police who work in these areas MUST have this survival sense to SURVIVE. I am certain that if you own a 55-foot gunboat, you most likely never lived in dangerous areas as described above for the majority of your life since economics is always the great barrier between safe and unsafe neighborhoods. Earl Frederick III reports in the "Harvard Public Health Review, Vol. 19, Death, Violence, Health and Poverty in Chicago": "Among neighborhoods that reported the highest concentrations of poverty between 2005 to 2009, all were predominantly African American and one-half had the highest homicide rates based on age-adjusted data per 100,000 persons (Table 1). Chicago’s richest and predominantly White neighborhoods (Lakeview, O’Hare, and Near North) each reported one murder annually between 2005-2009. Neighborhoods with lower incomes and larger African-American populations reported significantly higher numbers homicides, ranging from 3 (in Riverdale and Burnside) to 23 (Chatham) annually." So, when you make outrageous "blanket claims" against the police, you must fill in the spaces so the reader does not assume that this "police violence" is widespread and across the board when the facts dictate that it occurs predominately in the most dangerous areas of our country where a mental error can result in the death of the police officer. Good luck and safe sailing . . . Rognvald

Re: Nonviolent Civil Resistance - The 3.5% Rule

Hi Rognvald, excellent post on Chicago, yet it only supports the conclusion that "extra judicial killings" are far more prevalent in low income, poorly educated communities.

Much in the media about that here in the Philippines, where the present administration has empowered the police to execute in the name of a drug war.
Those killings are recently becoming less in the cities but now increasing dramatically in the provinces.
Again, a poor country, poorly educated population, begats a corrupt atmosphere of opportunism by those in power, both civilian and enforcement.

It is the bad situation that often spawns bad reactions to local confrontations and that does include bad cops worldwide.
