Just look at the way black act today , look at the way things went down in Baltimore the looting , arson , and damaging of private property . What was the democrats reaction to this then ?
We had times when you act like savages you get put out of your misery !!!
The morning after the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, Mayor Eugene Schmitz put up notices all over town warning that:
The Federal Troops, the members of the Regular Police Force and all Special Police Officers have been authorized by me to KILL any and all persons found engaged in Looting or in the Commission of Any Other Crime.
In December, 1913, the San Antonio River overflowed, and there was serious flooding in central Texas. The order issued to the state police was, “Shoot all looters, and shoot to kill.”
Until the 1985 Supreme Court case of Tennessee v. Garner , American police generally had the right to shoot a “fleeing felon,” including looters.
On April 15th, well after the violence was over, Mayor Daley made this extraordinary statement:
I have conferred with the superintendent of police this morning and I gave him the following instructions, which I thought were instructions on the night of the fifth that were not carried out. I said to him very emphatically and very definitely that [he should issue an order] immediately and under his signature to shoot to kill any arsonist . . . because they’re potential murderers, and to issue a police order to shoot to maim or cripple any arsonists and looters–arsonists to kill and looters to maim. . . .
I assumed any superintendent would issue instructions to shoot arsonists on sight and to maim looters, but I found out this morning this wasn’t so and therefore gave him specific instructions.
Those were the days my friend !!!
