Special to the Mirror by Paul Plante
Every day, it seems, we hear about this group or that group, or this “community,” or that “community” screeching and hollering about “police reform,” without ever really saying what “police reform” is, or what it would look like once enacted or implemented, and in his speech to the Democrats on 28 April 2021 to celebrate Joe Biden making it through one hundred days of what is a four-year term, which is like celebrating someone making it through the first quarter mile of a marathon, Joe brought the subject up himself, as follows:
We have all seen the knee of injustice on the neck of Black America.
Now is our opportunity to make real progress.
Most men and women in uniform wear their badge and serve their communities honorably.
I know them.
I know they want to help meet this moment as well.
My fellow Americans, we have to come together.
To rebuild trust between law enforcement and the people they serve.
To root out systemic racism in our criminal justice system.
And to enact police reform in George Floyd’s name that passed the House already.
I know the Republicans have their own ideas and are engaged in productive discussions with Democrats.
We need to work together to find a consensus.
Let’s get it done next month, by the first anniversary of George Floyd’s death.
The country supports this reform.
Congress should act.
We have a giant opportunity to bend to the arc of the moral universe toward justice.
And with the plans I outlined tonight, we have a real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues American life in many other ways.
Now, as we try to do what Joe said to do in his speech to the Democrats on 28 April 2021 where he told us that we have a giant opportunity to bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice, real justice, not some cheap fake or imitation justice, but the real deal, before we can actually do any of that actual bending of the arc of the moral universe towards real justice, not the horse**** version of “justice” Joe Biden is pushing, we first have to consider just what the word “justice” even means anymore, and to do that, we need to go back to August 10, 2020, just so many months before the farce of presidential elections in November of 2020, and the Washington Examiner article entitled “Biden now claims that Michael Brown was a victim of systemic racism” by Becket Adams, Commentary Writer, as follows:
Joe Biden this weekend tied the 2014 shooting death of Ferguson, Missouri, resident Michael Brown to the need to tackle “systemic racism” and corrupt law enforcement.
Now, that is some very heavy-duty pure horse**** there, and it is right there that Joe Biden lost me with respect to any bending of any moral arcs, because Joe Biden, a “Willie Horton Democrat,” is trying to bend them the wrong way to benefit the law breakers and scoffers at rule of law and order who are his base to the detriment of civilized society who would be the victims of Joe Biden’s so-called “police reforms,” which reforms are not the province of a United States president in the first place, as we will see as I develop this topic further by making reference to a document submitted to The Urban League a bit ago entitled NATIONAL COPS EVALUATION ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE CASE STUDY: Albany, New York by David Thacher, Research Associate, Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University – Case Study Prepared for the Urban Institute, which is a very thorough report on the history of the Albany Police, which agency is now under serious political attack by the Common Council of Albany and the so-called “police review board,” and reforms over the years, and the fact that meddling by ignorant politicians just like Joe Biden into matters they know nothing about, but only have their feelings and emotions about, like Willie Horton and the fact that he couldn’t get out of prison on weekends so he could mingle with polite society is a big part of what is wrong with policing in America today, which argues for keeping Joe Biden totally out of the process after his stupid remarks in 2020 about Michael Brown, which takes us back to the Washington Examiner, as follows:
It is puzzling that he would link the one to the others, considering the Department of Justice under his boss, former President Barack Obama, concluded that Brown was no victim.
Rather, the 18-year-old black man was killed in the act of attacking a police officer and trying to take away his gun.
“It’s been six years since Michael Brown’s life was taken in Ferguson — reigniting a movement,” said the former vice president on the sixth anniversary of Brown’s death.
“We must continue the work of tackling systemic racism and reforming policing.”
It’s been six years since Michael Brown’s life was taken in Ferguson — reigniting a movement. We must continue the work of tackling systemic racism and reforming policing.

There is Joe on TWITTER, a social media site for morons and idiots who can’t read or understand more than a handful of words or pure gibberish at a time, proving that TWITTER is for morons and idiots by posting the stupid TWEET, which is why I am against Joe Biden bending the arc of the moral universe in his direction, which will be to the benefit of other Michael Browns who like Willie Horton, are a threat to civilized society, not a benefit to it, which again takes us back to the Washington Examiner, to wit:
Again, Obama’s Justice Department found that there was no credible evidence to support the claim that the white officer, Darren Wilson, had done anything illegal when he shot and killed Brown.
Rather, its independent investigation found Wilson had acted in self-defense.
So, why release a statement on the sixth anniversary of the justifiable shooting death of Brown and tie it to “systemic racism and reforming policing?”
What is Biden doing, if not deliberately inflaming passions and whipping up resentment?
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee seems to be playing footsie with the popular and false assertion that led to the torching of Ferguson at the time — that Wilson had “murdered” Brown.
It is a lie, and a persistent one at that.
Other top-tier Democratic officials, including Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, have helped spread this bit of fake news, too.
And they know what they are doing when they spread it.
Harris said in August 2019, “Michael Brown’s murder forever changed Ferguson and America.”
“His tragic death sparked a desperately needed conversation and a nationwide movement.”
“We must fight for stronger accountability and racial equity in our justice system.”
Warren tweeted 35 minutes later, “5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.”
“Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times.”
“I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael.”
“We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.”
But Brown was not “murdered,” as the Obama Justice Department made abundantly clear in its investigation of the matter.
The false story that Brown put his hands up and said, “Don’t shoot!” has been debunked thoroughly, and Biden and his campaign team really should know better.
Sides are being taken, people, and lines are being drawn.
Which side will you be on?
