Lawmakers Trying To Pass Bill Exempting Politicians From Arrest And Prosecution For Corruption

    Oklahoma state Rep. Kevin Calvey, R-Del City

    Taking payoffs, breaking the law and pushing through unconstitutional legislation as special favors to corporate interests has long been par for the course in politics. But now Representative Kevin Calvey (R – Oklahoma City) wants to make it official and make it illegal to arrest any state officials accused of a public offense.

    Representative Calvey has introduced House Bill 2206, which would prohibit Oklahoma’s district attorneys from prosecuting state officials, granting that power exclusively to the state’s Attorney General. This would exempt lawmakers from prosecution of nearly any crimes that are normally handled at the local level.

    The bill proposes the following:


    Advertisment

    “The jurisdiction of a prosecution against a principal in the commission of a public offense, when such principal is a state elected official, state legislator, district court judicial officer, appellate judicial officer or an appointee of a state board or state commission at the time of the commission of the offense, is within the sole and exclusive prosecutorial authority of the Attorney General of Oklahoma. Such an action must be filed in the county of residence of the state officer.”

    “It’s a big deal to me. I’m upset and concerned,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater explained. “This bill creates a different class of citizens that would be protected from the normal prosecution process.”

    “I am suspicious … that is what this is really about,” Prater added.

    Rep. Calvey, said that he filed the bill because there is “malicious prosecution” of politicians. He cited the prosecution in Texas of former Gov. Rick Perry. But Calvey is in Oklahoma, and Perry is no longer in office, though he is fighting an abuse-of-power indictment that he says is politically motivated.

    While Calvey says he doesn’t think anything “so outrageous” would happen in Oklahoma, he adds “who knows who will get elected to those offices in the future? I do think it’s just better to prevent that kind of thing from ever arising… The point is to not allow a locally elected official to effectively have undue influence over statewide policy.”

    The bill never goes into specifics on what would be considered a public offense, thus providing immunity to lawmakers for nearly any criminal activity at the local level. Since Calvey himself acknowledges that the point would be to avoid legislators or politicians from being prosecuted for abuse-of-power, this bill proposes to set forth a very dangerous precedence that could lead to even less accountability for politicians.

        In several ancient civilizations, those in jobs of greatest political responsibility were held to higher standards than commoners, including more serious punishments. This was true of Confucius China as well as some ancient Greek City States. The idea was that higher levels of power brought added benefits to those who would wield that power but those benefits had to be tempered by more strict controls so where a commoner might be fined one goat for defrauding a neighbor, a government official might sentenced to death for defrauding a community under his rule. This was an attempt to balance the approach to power in their societies. The problem in our society is that those in power have the ability to make and subvert the rules.

        Funny when the President and the current Attorney General of the United States will not do their jobs prosecuting Hillary Clinton that a good thing. But when a RINO trys to push a law to help Clinton the fools can’t see it is for one of their own because a Republican is doing it! Lol

      • Paul Rice

        It is not only in the US where this is happening , and the protest voting for minority or extreme groups is proof that people have had enough of the current political parties and politicians and their corruption and incompetence .
        As can be seen across the world , either politics and politicians change or there will be massive unrest , even in developed countries , and instability will follow.
        Politics is being manipulated by the business and financial sectors , who do not care about global warming and climate change , only profit .

        america is a fascist country where all politicians and judges are bought and owned by evil bankers like the rothschilds and big corporations. the only thing that will break this cycle is full scale armed revolution by the 99% vs the evil 1 %

          Wade you do know that the current President is a Democrat right? That the current Attorney General is a Liberal Democrat. That they are both Black any anything they do must be good since they are not White. Come on how can a Black President be part of a FASCIST STATE?

      • tulet

        No one should be exempt from prosecution. It’s up to a judge to determine if prosecution is warranted.

        • SadDad92310

          But what if all the judges are in the pocket of the people who need to be brought to justice? The system is broken and the so called two party system is to blame! When a two party system is in reality only a one party scam. The republic becomes a Socialist Tyrannical government.

        In ancient Rome senators were immune from prosecution as well as private law suits for as long as they were senators. Senators robed and killed and cheated with reckless abandon, right up to the day they were removed from the senate— after which time they committed suicide to protect their families.

        Well we have a two sided coin locked and loaded. These sick and perverted pscyho paths are watching and feeling in real time their global fraud go down. What most concerns me is how many mind-virus people around the world are still asleep, because their vibration rate that is infected by it, because they give it the energy it needs to feed on, and the Illuminati and International bankers are experts at using the YT community and major blogger sites, to twist and turn the lies, and deceptions, that will continue conflict ridden thread lines, that will still drive negative energy. Example the flat earth community. They will infect as they do everything else they are attached to like termites, their sick and vile lies and propaganda, cause most people have yet to use their heart which has no polarity, to discern what truth is. The more you have your full holistic consciousness operating with your heart chakra intact, the less influence their lies and distortions can gain truth. Your heart and soul is where love and truth is, and anything that serves to self-annihilate what that truth is, is running negative mind-virus thread lines to deceive. These are the Fathers of all lies. Well, as I have said for some time now, the wheels of ‘FLAT EARTH” are already in motion and when they come off to expose the entire global fraud of not only where we live, but the entire global governing infrastructure that underlies all of it.

        Once 7 billion people learn the entire institutional form in which all knowledge and information that comes through these global governing infrastructures are all fraudulently setup to perpetuate a complete fraud, its game over.

        I can see everyone who owns a boat will be hotfooting it down to the antartic, every soldier and sailor who mans their weapons systems will leave their post and their will be a global boycoot of everything they are attached to that comes from them.

        This won’t be national, but global.

        Every ruling class elite will become targets, and there will be no more money or gold that will be enough to keep their pawns in the game going.

        Once a flat earth toy set comes into every Walmart as I already know is in motion, every child on the planet will be screaming for one.

        These monsters are finished. All of them and that means all their war cries and war industries that will go down with them, including every big pharma and Hollywood film set of *ullshit they use to keep their fraudulent round globe in perpetuity will collapse under the entire fraud everyone has been living in and supporting will collapse under the weight of their crimes. Their paper won’t be used anymore.

        Here is a link among hundreds of those who have a scientific background and those that don’t, who are proving we don’t live in a fraudulent NASA program of complete BS. The faster this ball rolls downhill, the faster this system finally collapses on itself.And they of the Illuminati and all self serving pschopaths who seek to use anything to create value as a means to use it as power and control over others will vanish under a planet that finally gravitates to live in peace, love and harmony as it is within our ability to do so.Only the sick and perverted rise to the top of the cesspool who think we have a need for hierarchies, for that is what reptiles do and not mammals who are socially connected with true love that is unconditional as what gives currency to our lives.

        of information request and still they hold it against us. and what about
        the police forces, they are not hired to serve and protect the people,
        they are hired to protect the government only.
        and do not forget that they place shrills in high places to protect them as well, such as lawyers, and Judges.

      • William Jones

        Unfortunately . laws like this will lead to assassinations. Currently judges are protected by similar law, so to fight it to supreme court will do no good. If one has power of impunity for actions and decisions with massive force and unquestioning lower ranks to hunt you down this is the definition of tyranny. Unfortunately again the second amendment will go also. Therefore as a human, wait till chaos, remember those of that nature and kill them all with extreme prejudice if you can.

            “The irony, of course, is that the Texas Republican Party would be in a very sticky situation without the federal government, which they constantly disparage while gleefully accepting millions from Washington in order to cover up the costs of their own mismangement. In 2010, the federal government spent about $9,000 per Texan, while the state spent a meager $2,200 on each of their citizens, forcing well-run liberal states to subsidize their awful Tea Party economics and refusal to adequately care for their impoverished citizens.” http://occupydemocrats.com/2016/04/19/treason-texas-republicans-just-voted-consider-seceding-union/

All 50 states have been re-constituted since August 2014 for their Common Law Grand Juries. The Common Law Grand Jury/We the People is the fourth level of government and sits at the top, above the supreme court. Common Law Grand Juries can take back the corrupt courts, get rid of agenda 21, smart meters, endless wars, criminal politicians, fake corrupt corporate governments and restore the original Constitution. Join our Monday night conference calls 6 pm PST, 9 pm EST and become active in the solution. It is the duty of the Grand Jury, if anyone’s unalienable rights have been violated, or removed, without a legal sentence of their peers, from their lands, home, liberties or lawful right, we (the twenty-five) shall straightway restore them. And if a dispute shall arise concerning this matter it shall be settled according to the judgment of the twenty-five Grand Jurors, the sureties of the peace.

              Mike Rivero has done a huge disservice to world by floating his shallow definition. What you guys don’t understand is that “corporate” in the sense used by Mussolini was not limited to private, profit-making enterprises as that term is used today. For example, labor unions were considered “corporations” under Fascism. Churches were “corporations”. A “corporation” is any organized class or group. Mussolini’s “fascism” was not the “merger” of corporate and state power, it was the reorganization of the state on a corporate basis whereby representation was not limited to individuals, but entire groups, e.g., “labor” had representatives in the Fascist government; “finance” had representation, “service employees”, “teachers”, etc. “Teachers” were a “corporation” in the fascist sense. So with all due respect to Mike Rivero and yourself, you guys are sloppy and historically unknowledgeable with regard to the topics about which you speak.

      • I feel that this is about protecting elected officials from being punished from abuse of privilege and trust. When we elect someone to represent us (do what they promised while campaigning and what a majority of us want after they are elected) we have the right to expect them to do exactly what they said they would do if elected. No following the party line, no catering to special interests, no letting special interests write legislation that benefits them and not the People, no leaving office much more financially secure than when they took office, no reelection. Just good public service for the period of time established in the Constitution for the office held. Then, after one period of service, everyone that served must return home and take up the lives they left in order to serve. Just like the Framers intended for them to do.

        talk about skewed reportage. does the author of this article even understand how to, idk, read? or how to report something without “I’M BIASED!!!” coming screaming off the page? the text of the proposed legislation does not make it “illegal” to prosecute an elected official. it makes it so that any prosecution of an elected official must be done by the state attorney general. is that fair? no, it’s not. they should, in the event that they need be prosecuted for something, be prosecuted just the same as anyone else caught doing whatever. but using inflammatory rhetoric that doesn’t even reflect the actual thing being reported on, that’s just doing a crappy job.

        DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN. It took 30 years to expose the one which protected the judiciary. That Constitutional Challenge will be world news soon. It permitted the ABA to overthrow the judiciary – and the govt. All that crazy SCOTUS decisions… Not constitutional or logical. Fulls explained at this web site. I have been working on this for 8 years. http://work2bdone.com/live/2014/11/overview-of-the-challenge-to-rule-1-6/

      • Terance Healy

        If you think this is WAY TOO CRAZY TO PASS… You may noty be aware that the judiciary enacted a law with the same power to prevent prosecution for corruption and injustice. 30 years ago. After the Cook County (Chicago) courthouse was decimated by the Graylord investigation. They made sure judges would never be prosecuted for any crime – it also permits lawyers to commit fraud to conceal fraud and to prevent recitfying the fraud. It is in every state now… and is unconstitutional. BUT they made it illegal to reveal it.

        This is the reason INJUSTICE in the USa is ignored – even when it is in your face national news.

        A law enacted by the state supreme court in every state without proper construction, without constitutional review, without involvement of any state legislature and without the signature of any governor designed to ignore judicial corruption and injustice which includes an aggressively enforced MANDATE of silence for all lawyers while ignoring, denying and preventing the constitutional rights of litigants.

        I believe that is a sign to get someone out of office, for even thinking that public officials should be on a different level as the people he is supposed to represent. I say “no exceptions”, even for the president.

      • Robert

        I agree that no one should be exempt but there is an issue that should be looked at as far as DA’s abuse of their position. The DA office is notorious for abusing their position for political reasons here in Texas. The democrat DA positions especially in Austin will trump up charges on conservatives to interrupt their terms examples would be… Tom Delay, the DA charging Rick Perry for abuse of his office. I have heard them described as Birdcage lawyers–they pick shit at the bottom of the cage. If they can’t beat you at the polls then they will tie you up in court.

      • You should see what legislators are doing about child porn. The main ones with all the youngster porn is the administration, the military in pentagon PCs and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in their PCs. Court records demonstrate the FBI ran a CP site trying to catch its clients; each CP picture and CP feature the FBI permitted individuals to download will stay some place on the Internet until doomsday. No less than 10,000 photographs of youngsters being postured bare, assaulted or overall misused were show through the FBI site. The FBI kept on dispensing CP online while it was under their control. A FBI pro in online law violations against youngsters, itemized the examination in an announcement to the court.
        http://www.breitbart.com/blog/2013/05/30/fbi-ran-pedophile-ring-to-nab-pedophiles/

        These same CP pictures and features the FBI permitted people to download made it on to P2P systems and afterward imparted to P2P programming. When somebody hunt down lets say the statement “youngster” they are overflowed with pictures to download: notwithstanding they don’t know whether the pictures are what they requested and they don’t know until they open the record and by then its past the point of no return law requirement programming has got the Ip location of the downloader. At that point law enforcement goes to a secrete FISA court to get a court order for the phisical location of the IP address. Those who profit from child sexual abuse is the multi BILLION dollar Child Abuse Industry that consists of THOUSANDS of ORGANIZATIONS with high paid CEO’s and staff which is full of nefarious individuals that must convince both us and their victims that everything is abuse. News media, therapists, prosecutors, judges, lawyers and sex police. Thousands of jobs depend on maximizing claims of abuse. Journalist are only allowed to report the Gothic Melodramas,and Monster stories of Child Molesting given to them by law enforcement. They play them out on TV news and in newsprint every day to keep people scared, and keep the donations and government grants coming and the people are provided these Gothic melodramas with not just titillation but assurances by them they are our righteous protectors. Constitutional and political science scholars have said these laws have undermined centuries of free speech and expression.

        The ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY and the CHILD ABUSE INDUSTRY lobbied congress to pass laws that were never intended to save children because the software used by Law Enforcement only goes after some P2P filesharer who happens to download intentionally or not images of the harm done by someone else and doesn’t rescue one child. This accounts for the high rate of arrests and incarceration that people read about daily. This Inquisition exposed a whole new group of people from whom to collect money where the legal system thrives. Law enforcement formally know as OFFICERS of the PEACE have become militaristic while prosecutors talk about their CP Gothic Melodramas in the MEDIA. Prosecutors have taken advantage of this opportunity because it wins votes, increases contributions and donations, increased grants to keep the people in their control.

        Johan Schlüter, head of the Danish Anti-Piracy Group remarked, “Child pornography is great,” and he said enthusiastically. “Politicians do not understand file sharing, but they understand child pornography, and they want to filter that to score points with the public. Once we get them to filter child pornography, we can get them to extend the block to file sharing. We must filter the Internet to win over online file sharing. But politicians don’t understand that file sharing is bad, and this is a problem for us. Therefore, we must associate file sharing with child pornography. Because that’s something the politicians understand, and something they want to filter off the Internet. Child pornography is an issue they understand.” Schlüter grinned broadly. ” FOLLOW THE MONEY

        Article 1 Section 6 US Constitution states: ” [The Senators and Representatives] shall, in all cases except Treason, Felony, and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses and in going to and returning from same…” Those who are guilty of such actions (Treason, Felony or Breach of the Peace) are either censured or impeached by their own elected peers. The Founders all understood that human nature could lead to bad actors and actions and wrote the Constitutional provisions in such a way as to allow for the release from office anyone who is found guilty of public offenses while holding that public office. Those who engage in Bribery, Fraud, and many other offenses commit FELONIES. Therefore, they are NOT and CANNOT be made immune from prosecution since the US Constitution is the First Law of the land and basically DEMANDS that those so accused be removed immediately from their official capacity, be tried, and if found guilty, sent home or to jail.

      • Robert Campbell

        No politician should ever be exempted from prosecution for any crime committed while in or out of office. Malicious prosecution ie. Texas Gov Perry, is just part of what a politician has to deal with when performing their duties to state government. Just because someone files a suit against a sitting politician, it does not mean the politician is guilty of the declared crime. Remember, “Innocent until PROVEN GUILTY” Allowing any politician to claim exemption from any type judicial action is creating another tier of citizen that would enjoy protection without merit.

Rick Perry just to slander him and prevent him for running for President . We also had the same thing happen to Tom DeLay just before the 2008 Presidential Election . The charges against DeLay were finally dropped (or reversed) within the last year and a half . It is time to stop these liberals dead in their tracks .

        • Justeds

          Dustin? Let’s put your over-simplified views of perry’s, and delay’s legal battles aside. Who in your opinion, who should be allowed to indict politicians; only their peers? State Attorney Generals are appointed as opposed to elected like local prosecutors aren’t they? Wouldn’t you rather trust “We The People” than “them the appointed”? Or have you drunk the korporate kool-aid to the point that you’d rather be ‘Bossed’ by the few; rather than have a system by which everybody is equally held accountable, or do you believe there should be a certain class that don’t have to be questioned on behalf of the people?

          • Dustin

        Would be interesting to see what Calvey has done that worries him so much about prosecution on the local level! Typical politician – from either side of the aisle.

      • John

        I didn’t even need to read the article to know that it a teabagging piece of human sewage proposing such a thing.

      • Mikal Gastpipe

        I’ve read SEVERAL stories that allege that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reed consorted to EXEMPT themselves from ‘insider trading’ charges, and it IS, in fact, on the books. I report, you decide!

      • Chicho Yayo

        I sill don’t know these crooks (r) keep getting elected to office. Republican policy is no good for the middle-class and poor, but yet these imbeciles keep getting elected. Man when they people in the south are dumb, they’re not kidding.

      • Dee Oldguy

        So what is he trying to hide? Anyone f who votes for it, needs to be removed from office -now or next election on that vote alone.

      • James Cluckey

        So backwards with his ideas. In this day when corruption is disappearing he is actively trying to promote corruption.

      • Thomas A. McDonald

        They already vote themselves pay-raises, decide how many days to work, or not to work, and now they want to exempt themselves from the law, unless they get Judged by one of themselves. And Republicans cry about how President Obama is an Imperial President! You can’t get much more self-indulgent, self-absorbed, or self-important that this CLOWN!

      • my name

        somebody needs to tell this guys he is a POS, and yes he is different than the people that are not low life scum bag politicians

      • RobertAllen1

        What is Calvey trying to hide?

      • Luke Fawcett

        If this appeared on Saturday Nite Live as a spoof it would be hilarious. Just think: We can give politicians carte blanche to do whatever to whoever and not suffer consequences. HAHAHAHA. Hilarious spoof so I know this can’t be serious.

        • Chester Louis

          its serious just like over the last 6 years millions of illegals was given work permits under a “shadow plan” that was kept silent from the public..look it up

      • Philip Vitale

        pass an instant death penalty law for politicians that are found guilty of any wrongdoing. they work for the american people.

        • Chester Louis

          they work for the american people? your not living in the 80s or 90s anymore..you work for them you pay your taxes so they can give the money to the illegals..serious question why do you think they let illegals stay when over 50% of Americans want them sent back home? does that sound like they work for you lol keep telling yourself that

      • awake108

        Read the Powell memo 1971 sent to the head of the US chamber of congress it outlines the right wings plan for the making of a corporate monarchy and as you see it is working Google it it is easy and we should know the plan of the traitor to our democracy

      • Chester Louis

        i disagree with this i think they should be removed from office then every corrupt penny taken away from them and no pension either…WE THE PEOPLE need to take the power back from the government like it was in the 60s and 70s

      • Greg Callanan

        He should be put in jail for introducing the bill. Isn’t he aiding and abetting criminal activity?

      • KennyIllinois

        The people would like to see the Death Penalty for Political Corruption. Both Parties fear that as Obama would be the first to go to the gallows.

      • Mike

        I’ll bet that Rep Calvey is worried about getting prosecuted for something he’s done & trying to cover his butt now before he’s found out.

      • doninkansas

        oh look, it is a REPUBLICAN politician who thinks he should be exempt from prosecution by local authorities. why does this surprise anyone?

      • Adam_Rodriguez

        Holy crap, is there some form of resistance to this bill in Oklahoma?!

      • jack

        All the DEmocratic Liberals want to do is bash wall st. but do not want to be held accountable for their own actions?

      • Mietze

        Commit the Crime – Pay the price. Do not let these crooks get away with anymore than are doing now

      • Chuck

        I’m surprised it took them so long to try this. I think they are losing their touch.

      • tom

        Why should anyone be above the law

      • CLA

        this guy needs to lose his job

      • marc broussard

        Of coarse he’s a republican. This is what they do. Pretty much all they do. Legalize their criminal activity by passing laws that exempt them from prosecution.

      • Marti Webster Lanier

        YOUR FREAKING KIDDING ME???
        Politicians should obey the Sane laws everyone else does
        I HOPE OKLAHOMA IS SMARTER THAN THIS!

      • Sundance

        Here it is, Republicans giving themselves a license to steal

      • Harry Haff

        This is part of the Party of Stupid (POS) agenda to destroy America. First is preventing middle class and poor poor people from sharing in the wealth of the country by crafting laws to benefit only the 1%. And laws like this which set POS elected official above the law even more. My guess is this is a trial balloon by the national committee to see if people are dumb enough to let it pass. And since OK is a POS stronghold it probably will.

      • Mike Pressley

        He should be arrested for even introducing a bill like that. The sad part is he will probably be reelected because apparently many people are too dumb to know how to vote. Otherwise how would crooks like Harry Reid and many many others remain in office.

      • joebatch

        This is utterly absurd and nonsensical that this elected official would even voice this out loud. Why doesn’t he just ask the Supreme Court(Citizens United-Part 2) to appoint congress and the senate diplomatic immunity for any and all laws they break in the future. What could go wrong? Why just stop at corruption and bribes. Why not make them immune from murder,rape,dui’s,hit and runs, spousal abuse,etc. Talk about jumping the shark and leaping right into the realm of total insanity. It’s almost as amazing and mind boggling as some of the people here who agree with this madness and name call anyone who sees the so many things wrong with this ‘idea’. Just why are the people in his state no matter what party they are in not calling for his head for even dreaming this up and wanting to use taxpayer money to spend the time and effort to get this passed? Why is this not front page and evening news? I stumbled onto other wise I never would have heard of this. These ‘people’ have no shame.

      • fldpwrman

        Might want to investigate this a$$hole right away

      • Not surprised at all, only surprised it took this long for them to come right out in the open & try to make it illegal to arrest the political crooks !

      • MARK

        To help further subjugate the people…

        Time for dragging politiocians behind speeding cars.

      • jennyOh

        If they want to be free of prosecution, then now is the time to start digging because they already have the skeletons in the closet, with many more to follow…

      • Mentallect

        Republican politician crafted this bill of course.

        • Doug H

          Read the story again you illiterate buffoon….

      • MrAndiconda MrAndiconda

        They want life long terms, and immunity from law……… hmmmmm Corporations are considered “people” and can spend as much as they want to buy politicians……hmmm. Corporations (people) can open a call center HQ in denmark, Ireland or both and pay 1.9% taxes while citizens fork 30-40% of pay..hmmmm.

        Just these three examples (of hundreds) should make anyone with a brain very concearned

      • Gettyup

        WOW! republicans have absolutely NO SHAME they tell you right to your face “WE ARE ABOVE THE LAW” and I bet come time to re-elect this ass they will because of course he will LIE again while running….

        • Doug H

          Wow, another Democratic illiterate that didn’t either read the whole story or is too effin stupid to understand it…It scares me that people can be as ignorant as you are.

          • Gettyup

            Wow the ignorance you display is not amazing to those who know dam good well NO REPUBLICAN is going to EVER REALLY STAND BEHIND A BILL LIKE THIS..it’s all mouth service to voters like you who will be more than ready to vote him in AGAIN!.

      • Dora Glasberg

        He also reveals his TOTAL IGNORANCE
        of the nature of the charges against Perry

      • Doug H

        Actually when you read what this law would be and why it’s being introduced….It makes great sense. It doesn’t in anyway protect an official from being prosecuted for being corrupted, it just stops frivolous political attacks for the sake of defaming. Only a lefty doesn’t see the logic in this story. Or maybe they do see the logic and they see this only way they can “Defame” an opponent…

        • Dora Glasberg

          Perry is a crook
          whose crimes caught up with him.
          You are totally ignorant of why Perry was charged,
          Payback? MUAH HA HA HA HA
          And, no, I won’t explain it to you.
          I HAVE a life.

          • Doug H

            You explain it to me? LOL. That’s a laugh. You are an idiot. I wouldn’t ask you for directions to the Post Office. Get back to school Dora…You obviously were on drugs…..

        Unarmed but deadly!

        Kevin R. Davis | From the February 2015 Issue Tuesday, February 3, 2015

        Case 1:

        Attempting to arrest the subject for domestic violence, the patrol officer located and stopped him in a parking lot in the area after he fled the house where he lived with his girlfriend. But the officer’s orders of, “Turn around and put your hands behind your back,” were not met with compliance. The suspect, a professional boxer and violent criminal, turned and hit the officer in the face with multiple punches, knocking him to his knees. The officer felt the darkness of unconsciousness closing in and, still being pummeled, feared that his life was in danger. He wasn’t able to complete his draw before he lost consciousness and the suspect made his escape. Responding officers found the officer in the parking lot with cuts to his head. The suspect had drawn a blade from a utility knife hidden in his pants pocket and slashed the officer on the top of the head. *As a side-note, when the suspect was arrested later that night—though handcuffed behind his back, he head-butted another officer in the face, breaking his nose.

        The officer involved in the above incident is a longtime friend and coworker since 1982. In addition to the lacerations to his scalp and injuries to his face from the punches, he sustained a concussion. He is a tough cop and veteran street officer. But he was dealing with and attempting to arrest a violent felon and skilled fighter who attacked when he saw an opening. His attack was deadly. Even before he drew his concealed blade and slashed the officer’s head, the repeated violent punches to the officer’s head to the point of unconsciousness were a deadly threat to the officer and he could have lawfully shot the suspect. Many officers, supervisors, administrators and certainly politicians and the public don’t understand that a suspect, by virtue of a violent unarmed attack, can present a deadly threat to an officer or others. An officer is not required to submit to such a violent attack and can respond with deadly force if they believe that their life, or the life of another, has been threatened with death or serious bodily injury.

        But under what type of circumstances can officers use deadly force against an unarmed suspect?

        “Lethal force or deadly force, (the terms are interchangeable) is that degree of force which a reasonable and prudent person would consider capable of causing death or great bodily harm,” “grave bodily harm,” “serious bodily harm,” etc.; the easiest way to remember it in layman’s terms is “crippling injury.”The set of circumstances that justifies the use of deadly force is a situation of immediate danger of death or great bodily harm to oneself or other innocent persons.” —Massad Ayoob, Deadly Force: Understanding Your Right to Self Defense

        A police officer can use deadly force when it is objectively reasonable for him to do so. A reasonable amount of force may be used based on reasonable perceptions and the totality of the circumstances. Being shot at, having a suspect point a weapon at you, facing an armed man with gun in hand, dealing with a suspect who attempts to draw or grab a firearm, a violent person within a reasonable distance armed with a knife or bludgeon all allow the use of deadly force based on the totality of the circumstances and the officer’s reasonable perception that their life, or the life of another, is being threatened with deadly or serious bodily harm. Certainly officers want to make every effort to avoid “blue-on-blue” shooting incidents or fratricide where they shoot off-duty officers who have interceded in violent encounters or, for that matter, private law abiding citizens who are attempting to stop a violent attack against themselves or someone else.

        It is vital that good tactics are employed to protect you, other officers and the citizenry. If time and the circumstances permit, keep your distance and seek cover prior to engaging potentially armed suspects.

        But there are other circumstances with unarmed subjects which are deadly force encounters.

        Case 2:

        Two professional wrestlers went to a local fast-food restaurant after a match. The restaurant had just closed and refused the men entrance. One of the two picked up a 30-pound landscaping stone and threw it through the window of the restaurant. Two officers, one male, one female were dispatched to the call and confronted the wrestlers later at their hotel. They were immediately attacked. The male officer was attacked by one wrestler, suffered serious leg injuries and was then pummeled by the other suspect. As he was lying on the floor his female partner was repeatedly slammed against the wall. She sustained career-ending injuries to her head and face.

        Neither officer fired a shot. Clearly this was a deadly force situation (one of the two suspects was a former Olympic weight lifter and steroid abuser, who was the first American to lift 500 lbs. above his head).

        This is not to second guess the responding officers who were seriously injured in the attack, but to attempt to learn from their experience.

        Hyper-violent suspects who are deranged, very large, under the influence of drugs, exceedingly strong, well-skilled or trained and who are actively and violently attacking an officer may present a deadly threat if the officer reasonably believes his life is in danger or the suspect may inflict serious physical harm.

        You only have to go to YouTube or check out officer safety training videos to see graphic examples of officers being beaten unconscious: the female officer punched in the face and knocked out, then mounted by the much larger male suspect who repeatedly punches her in the head; the male officer knocked out by the male D.U.I. suspect; the video of the officer being beaten by a suspect on the hood of his patrol car—I could go on and on. How about those officers bitten by hyper-violent suspects? There are officers who have had their cheeks, necks, ears and even fingers bitten off by “unarmed men.” Certainly it is clear that when these attacks occur, they involve serious bodily injury or grave bodily harm and officers have no legal obligation to attempt lesser forms of control before shooting the suspect.

        Multiple suspects are potentially another form of deadly threat. The mere notion that you can use some type of academy-taught, empty-hand control to stop multiple suspects who are threatening or actively assaulting you and present a serious threat of death or crippling injury is based more on some action movie or TV show than reality Even Rorion Gracie from the famed Gracie Jiu-Jitsu clan has asked this question about multiple attackers: “Could you, beat two of you, on your best day?” Mr. Gracie has even commented on his ownership of a firearm for these types of situations: “Any reality-based and experienced suspect control instructor would know that empty hand control is not suitable in encounters where two or more suspects are actively trying to beat you to a pulp or, for that matter, seriously threatening to do so.”

        In my police career I have lost track of the number of male and female officers who’ve been knocked down to the ground and stomped. The result has been teeth kicked out, bones broken, concussions and other serious brain trauma. Being a cop does not mean you have to submit to those types of attacks.

        Constable Darrel Lunsford had purchased his dashboard mounted camcorder out of the money he seized conducting drug interdictions in Nacogdoches County, Texas. On Jan. 23, 1991, Lunsford conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with three suspects inside. As he was inspecting the trunk with them and found the marijuana they were transporting inside, they attacked him. Tackling the much larger Lunsford, they took him to the ground, stabbed him, then disarmed and killed him with his own handgun. All three were subsequently captured and convicted.

        Since that time, holsters have improved, as have tactics in doing interdiction stops, but still over the last 10 years, according to the F.B.I.’s LEOKA—Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted research—18 out of 511 officers killed, or 3.5%, were disarmed and killed with their own gun.

        Certainly being violently punched in the head and face by a violent attacking suspect carries with it the risk of serious injury in and of itself. Once incapable of defending yourself, you lose the ability to maintain control of your handgun and this is usually how these disarms and murders take place: officer violently attacked, injured or knocked out, disarmed and killed. There can also be those suspects who attempt a disarm without otherwise attacking or who attack while attempting to pull the officer’s handgun free from the holster. From a determined hyper-violent, deranged or manic suspect, all of these scenarios are deadly and all can be stopped by deadly force, shooting or stabbing the suspect with a patrol knife—if that is physically possible. In other words, you have to maintain control of your handgun first and foremost, and then (if possible) shooting or stabbing a suspect is a reasonable action.

        Conclusion

        As per Graham v. Connor, an officer’s force does not have to be the least amount of force, it does not have to be reasonable and necessary, it only has to be objectively reasonable; at the moment force is used, based on the totality of the circumstances. And deadly circumstances are not restricted to armed men. Unarmed attacking or threatening men or women—based on size, strength, ferocity of attack, threat of serious bodily harm, attempted disarm and more—can present a deadly threat and can be shot in order to stop them.

        You don’t have to be beaten to death or seriously injured, disarmed and killed with your own gun. The law supports your right to use deadly force when you reasonably believe, based on the totality of the circumstances, that your life is in danger or the suspect(s) presents a risk of serious bodily harm. Now, go train to stop those threats.

      • JGault

        At first my reaction was very negative to this, but there may be some legitimacy to it. My thoughts go back to Sarah Palin and others like her. Viciously and unrelentlessly attacked through the courts rendering them unable to carry out their normal daily duties and in some cases, breaking them financially. There needs to be a very carefully crafted bill that does NOT protect a criminal, but those only guilty of trying to do a good job in public service.

        • JGault

          When you combine the courts with the media, it can be a nightmare for anyone being even though they might be innocent.

      • flatland

        I’m confused by the article. The article says “immune” and “exempting from arrest and prosecution.” Would the proposal make them “immune” or would it mean that instead of local DA’s doing the prosecution, the state Attorney General office would have to be the prosecutor? I am 100% for politicians being accountable and figuring a way to stop corruption. However corruption charges are beginning to become the norm, not as an offense, but as a political tool. Sometimes if just to throw charges against the wall and see if they stick, but certainly to slow political momentum and distract from initiatives. The charges are also used to taint political careers. Guarantee even if cleared, it will be dredged up in future elections. “once charged with,” “once accused of,”. Recourse against these types of things is virtually impossible. Some local DAs are elected, some are appointed. Either way, potentially making them suspect of abuse of office potential. If we are going to address corruption then we need a way to address misuse of office and position by DAs. State legislatures can help themselves by making clear ethics and conflict of interest laws and rules.

      • Laura Mullen

        What they should do is raise the penalty for corruption by a politician to life without parole mandatory minimum. We should be able to hold elected officials to a higher standard.

      • DiamondDick1

      • JD

        Wrong direction on this one. Need to double the penalties as a minimum and make it so much less is required for proof of wrongdoing. Should be a higher standard for those setting the standards.

      • Lynne

        The bill that needs to be introduced should indicate immediate prosecution for unethical and illegal activity. That would be one way to basically clear both floors right now. I was absolutely flummoxed when it came out congress had passed an internal rule that said reps could no longer benefit from insider trading…really? What ticked me off more is that a month or two later, and very quietly, they passed another “rule” that rescinded the restriction. Funny, anyone else in the general public gets tossed in jail for insider trading.

      • feddup2

        One doesn’t even have to read the whole story to see what this is all about. The headline says it all. Do politicians really think we are that stupid? Wait, that goes without saying, after all, we are the ones who put them in office aren’t we?

      • Darrow

        “This would exempt lawmakers from prosecution of nearly any crimes that are normally handled at the LOCAL level.”

        “…….is within the sole and exclusive prosecutorial authority of the Attorney General of Oklahoma.”

        Calvey’s proposal does not provide immunity to anyone. It shifts the duties of the prosecution to the Attorney General’s office instead of a local kangaroo court.

        Say a local DA has a severe dislike for a state legislator, and drums up charges with which to prosecute him. This bill would require the DA to go to the state Attorney General’s office to seek prosecution, taking away the DA’s “home turf” advantage in a local court. It would curtail “political” prosecutions by local prosecutors only. People need to read the proposal, AND understand what the words mean!

      • RickFromTexas

        Uh-huh, and if the bill passes, expect politicians driving drunk, buying hookers, drugs, and every other lowlife behavior that’s considered a public offense.

        Something this stupid and ill conceived could only come from a republican. I almost feel sorry for Oklahomans but hey, they elected this cretin, let them deal with him, we’ve all got cretins of our own to worry about.

        I have an alternative idea: How about making all criminal acts by a public official capital offenses? I bet the number of people accepting ‘campaign contributions’ in return for their support would drop dramatically if those that were caught were sent to death row.

        Sure he want to pass that law, that the way the politicians can take
        money and spend it on themselve and their family, and walk scott free
        from the crime. If they get stop for DWI the courts can’t tough them, if
        they kill someone with a weapon or a car, they are immune to criminal
        prosecution. I wonder how dirty he is so he would not have to pay for
        any crime, domestic or political.

        Wow the arrogance. No longer hiding their corruption. I am used to them lying about it, I am used to them covering it up, these things have happened for decades. But to be so in our face blunt about it, just shows the contempt against the Constitution, and arrogance of the Political class against the average citizen. It has never been ok, but damn, how do you combat this type of corruption. Something attributed to Nixon, ” I’m saying when the President does it, it is not illegal” So now they try to legalize their corruption, to get even more bribes and kick backs.

      • Truthforall

        WHY WOULD THE VOTERS VOTE THEN ? YOU COULD DESTROY WHAT LITTLE FAITH PEOPLE HAVE IN POLITICIANS ! MOST PEOPLWE ARE AGAINST WHAT YOUR BILL SAYS, ARE YOU A CROOK OR JUST STUPID ??

      • Daniel Barger

        The act of introducing such legislation is a crime and should result in the arrest and prosecution of this criminal in office.

      • Bill Love

        Politicians haven’t paid any attention to the laws in years. They have learned the people don’t care because they keep putting the same crooks back in office.

      • Smarty

        It appears Mr. Calvey would rather be tried, convicted, and punished by a “jury of his peers” ….or shall we call them….his constituents. You know….the guys up on that hill by the big ‘ol oak tree with a rope hanging down…..

      • Damidwesterner Indamidwest

        I’d say Rep Calvey should be the first one to be prosecuted for corruption. To have the balls to propose this legislation proves he’s got something to hide.

      • David Lenihan

        This is interesting that politicians don’t want to be arrested for corruption. On the other hand…..I would like to see enabling legislation that makes public sector (or political) malfeasance/corruption a capital crime. It is clear that it is as heinous as murder and should be punished accordingly. I know that many of you would say that we would eliminate the political class if such legislation was passed…..but hey, we could not do worse than what we have right now.

      • Roger Land

        Calvey I guess we will see how politically motivated the charges against Perry are when the trial starts. He is as corrupt as they come and evidently you are as well and think it to be acceptable as long as you are a politician and Republican.

      • SumerianMan

        Hey, that’s just fine with me. If we can’t legally take them to court over wrong doing then I guess we’ll just have to CHARGE, TRY, CONVICT, and EXECUTE them ourselves! And I think we’ll get a much higher conviction rate then the current processes.

      • Roger Land

        This is because Republicans are the most corrupt politicians. There are tons of Democrats that are corrupt but just by this POS trying to push through his corruption and his fellow Republicans corruption is proof enough for me that they should all be voted out and sent to prison.

        • Oddball9

          Political corruption is like a swinging pendulum. Currently, the political right is doing the most damage. Eventually—if there’s still time—it will swing back to the left. IF ONLY the voting public would take seriously its role in watch-dogging our government, the established system of checks-and-balances WILL work!

        • Roger Land

          They won’t. I have a sister in law that lives in northern Oklahoma and as long as a politician says he is a Christian (doesn’t matter how corrupt he is) she will vote for him every time. Okie’s will believe anyone that professes to be a Christian and it doesn’t matter what they do or how much proof there is they are corrupt all they have to do is just say they are a Christian and that is a guaranteed vote.

        • Roger Land

          Michael that is where you went completely wrong. Anyone was better than Perry and the problem is many like yourself won’t vote for anyone that isn’t in the Republican party, no matter how good the other guy is or how bad the Republican is. You pretty much said that in your post. By saying you been voting on the republican ticket for several years. You don’t pick and choose you just vote straight ticket, no matter how sorry the person is running.

        I think the article says it well. They (people in power) are trying to create a separate class of citizenry. They’ve been chipping away at our civil rights for a while now.

        • Wake

          So you’re right on top of this aren’t you? It says that LOCAL DA’s are not allowed to prosecute government officials and if you read the comments here you’d see why – any small time DA can try to make a name for himself making charges that an elected official could never get off of his record despite the fact that none of it is true. It has LONG been the practice particularly of Liberals to make false charges against politicians to clear the way for their own kind.
          The State Attorney General who is FAR more public can make charges and if those charges are false then the AG would have a whole lot more to lose. That is in fact keeping the system MORE honest and not less.

          • Dan Jarrell

            I cant believe you would make an argument FOR this kind of law PERIOD. How can you even THINK about letting politicians create a bill that would ALLOW them to be CORUPT. This is insane!!

            • Wake

              Is there something you’re missing from what I wrote? IF a politicians is corrupt he should be arrested and prosecuted but NOT by some local yokel who couldn’t tell corruption from what he has in his hand in the morning.

              You don’t have little men chasing big crimes because either they can use it as a means to destroy a good man or they could screw the entire case up.

        Get a grip on yourself the law does not say that they can’t be charged it just put the burden on the attorney general. This prevents every states attorney in every county from waging a political vendetta against a law maker there is no reason that if a crime has been committed that they can’t be arrested and charged. This is not blanket immunity

        So the lawmakers can accept bribes. Is this what could be called Political “rights”, setting themselves up above the law somewhat similar to religious “rights”.

            Dougy is a butt-hurt racist pig. Don’t bother to read his posts.

      • tariq

        This is the ultimate slap in the face to the entire U.S. population. it’s just incredible that they are even considering passing a law that would exempt them from being charged with a crime for braking the law. That is the ultimate white privileged mentality.

        • brandon

          Bro, why do you say white privilege? I am white and I think this is audacious and ludicrous. I don’t think it has anything at all to do with race.

          • Will

            Tariq…if breathing took conscious thought, you’d be dead. White privilege?!!!

            • d wright

              This has nothing to do with race. This has everything to do with two sets of rules. One for the peasants (Tariq, Brandon, Will & Myself) and another set for corrupt persons in power like Mr. Calvey and his pals.

          • RickFromTexas

            Maybe so but I understand what he means, the concept is similar, he’s talking about political privilege.

            But since Calvey is republican and white is their super majority, it’s just about synonymous with white privilege, he’s only thinking of himself and his political friends, most of whom are white. It’s the same mentality, the same kind of thinking behind both kinds of privilege, putting one group above everyone else.

          • kikr313

            White privilege is the new buzz phrase to match idiot things like “War on Women.”

          • davisss13

            Sure it does. These old, corrupt white Christians think laws don’t apply to them. They see their future in doubt and are passing laws to keep in power longer.

              You sound a little mad bro. Maybe sit down and drink a beer dude?

        • Dean Hollister

          yeah we know only white people are corrupt

          • tariq

            I never said anything faintly resembling that, but if it makes you feel good to say that then by all means carry on.

            • Dean Hollister

              oh sorry it just seemed to me that you added race to something that is irrelevent

        • MeteorACDC

          When all else fails? BLAME WHITEY!

          Idiot.

          • tariq

            Your mother is an idiot and “WHITEY” (as you put it) is absolutely the blame for all of the horrors that people all over the world face today. If you want to live in denial or engage in willful ignorance regarding that fact that is your choice.

        • Jerkel

          Tariq, what in the hell are you going on about white privilege? There is no white privilege..it doesn’t exist anymore, its just some story you were naive enough to fall for to get you to resent white
          people. You split people apart when you make racially charged statements
          like that–get your head clear and see this for what it is. A corrupt
          ruling class of individuals who are ruling over people of all races in
          this country. Please for my sake, your sake, and everyone else out
          there stop looking at this as a race issue and see it for what it is–a
          class issue. Don’t let them con you into the left/right, black or white
          arguments. They would have you believe that the world and every choice
          you make is a black or white decision…that there aren’t any grey
          areas…they do this because they hide within the grey areas and tell
          you that it doesn’t exist. Just stop and think about.

          • tariq

            Privileged class people and the white supremacist system we live under does a very good job of creating resentment towards privileged class people and “split” people apart. It certainly does not need the word privilege in any story to create that resentment of privileged class people which is extremely prevalent in America today.

        • feddup2

          Yeah, white privilege, the same thing Al Sharpton and his non-paying of taxes enjoy huh? Someone always has to play the “pitiful me” race card don’t they?

          • tariq

            Only people who are consumed with hatred for other people use the term “race card” Al Sharpton is not the only person in the world who attempted to avoid paying their taxes and as far as “someone always has to play the pitiful me race card” I have no knowledge of that I certainly didn’t use any of those terms in my post.

        • Lynne

          tqariq; I refer you back to Charlie Rangel, a member of the Black Caucus, who violated an ethics policy and was convicted as such. He was given a censure on the open floor and he complained the “punishment” was too severe. He should have been shown the door. What got me later is the clown was re-elected. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/16/AR2010111604000.html

          • tariq

            Why do you refer me back to Charlie Rangel, I know who he is, what he did and what happened to him. What I don’t understand is how and/or why did my post denouncing law makers trying to pass a bill that would exempt politicians from arrest and prosecution for corruption compel you to refer me to Charlie Rangel.

        • Tim Orean

          I am White, what is this ” privilege ” you speak of? Can you explain it please? I work for a living, pay my bills, have a little left over, pay my taxes, try to be a law abiding citizen, how do I have it better than anybody else? Just a few years ago, I was just walking down the street, walking to a nearby store, it was in the early am ( I work 3rd shift ) because it was a nice night, I was stopped by police, asking for ID, what I was doing, can we search you? So, I guess I got stopped for walking while White? Needless to say, I was not real happy about the treatment I was getting, and stupid me, was not very quiet about it. Which didn’t help my situation, I was detained needlessly for hours. So you see, this perception that you have is totally wrong, get over it. My truth card, trumps your race one.

          • tariq

            Anyone who has been in America for more than fifteen minutes and claim that they don’t know what white privilege is then that person is either in denial or he/she is being willfully ignorant and I am certainly not going to waste my time explaining the obvious. Apparently you have access to a computer and if you really don’t know and really want to know the answer to your question then you should research it instead of asking me or anyone else to explain it to you. It is pretty much a straight forward process all you have to do is Google the phrase “white privilege” and take it from there.

            • Tim Orean

              Well, I could Google unicorns, leprechauns, bigfoot, aliens and get a lot of information on them too, but it does not mean it exists , it only exists in your mind, because that’s what you have to keep telling yourself to justify poor choices, and lack of discipline to run your own life in a manner acceptable to society. To think White people do not experience racism, hate, pain, all the things other humans do is absurd, who is the naïve one?

            • Michael Sholtis

              w0w just plain w0w I could make the same case for blacks Hispanics anyone. Any privilege is a joke, it is the ruling class vs. us unless you want to lump everyone into some hate filled stereotype. All whites are raciest, only whites can be racis,t all whites are part of the conspiracy wtf? yeah keep calling a color thing, racist…

              • tariq

                I don’t give a damn what you and other privileged class people believe because I and many, many people know the truth.

                • Michael Sholtis

                  What a dickhead… go ahead believe what you want. The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand; and you and those many many people sound uneducated and want to believe what you want, so you will believe it. No facts or representations will change that belief. You are ignorant your belief is easily manipulated and your knowledge is lacking. LOL me and my other privileged class of people OMG LOL too funny… There are problems for sure but a white mans conspiracy of privilege LOL f’ing LOL

                  • tariq

                    Your mother is a dick head. And I will believe what I want to believe and what I believe is based on the facts. If anyone presents any facts and or representations that are contrary to what I believe then I will adjust my beliefs accordingly.

              • tariq

                Oh yeah so called “Blacks” and Hispanics pass laws exempting themselves from prosecution for committing crimes all the time. and white privilege is not real.

                • Michael Sholtis

                  Yeah you got it nailed there was a big whites only meeting at the 4 Seasons and they asked me how would you like to us to pass a whites only law absolving all whites from committing any crimes of course i said shit yeah, then we ate caviar and sipped champagne and talked about repressing Americans more but only the blacks and Hispanics of course.

                  Dude I am not going to listen to your whiny trolling bs any longer go ahead take all the time you want brooding in some white hate induced bs you have been spoon fed. I dont have time to entertain your bs I have to work 60+ hours a week to make ends meet (my wife works more then that). I have worked too hard to get ahead to have it be called a privilege and dont think that it didnt come with a lot of risk and debt to do so. I get it you have a chip and you have taken what is unfair and place it on whites being the cause when it is the 1% that control it all. I think it is epic funny you think that 1% is going to let me or anyone into their club because they are white, we are all pawns to them.

                  Politicians pass laws all the time giving themselves more power and less accountability, it is what they do (BTW you know politicians submit laws/bills to congress who decide for it to become a law right? that it is not Blacks or Whites or Hispanics who just get to say hey pass this law…) Your hate is overshadowing your understanding and vision of what is before you. Go ahead and blame whites for what it is you think you deserve or go out and try to work for what it is you want get educated, take risks, get ahead or just stew in your BS. The one thing I do know is that there exists a lot more entrepreneurial support, education, upward mobility support, with programs, grants, and community development opportunities for anyone who is not a white male then there are for someone who is a white and a male (and I am not upset about that).

                  Stop being such a racist and start thinking how to win and get ahead. I know the deck is stacked against us all stop using your perception to limit yourself and start taking every advantage you can to get ahead.

                  If what you say you feel is totally unquestionably true then dont you think someone engineered that place for you? If I was in the 1% thinking like the 1% I would want more people like you thinking you have no opportunity, spewing hate (dividing), upset placing blame, and looking to tare things down rather then building yourself up and taking any market share from me and killing any competition you could produce. I would want you a pawn fighting with people that are of no threat to me keeping it a simple color issue to distract from my dominating agenda of total control.

                  We both are getting played we are all pawns and in no way to the depths of my heart and soul do harbor you or any other human any sort of racist white power agenda, nor am I taking part in any white privilege agenda, nor do I know anyone that is White who goes to some secret pro white agenda meetings, nor am I or anyone i know a lobbyist able to pass or effect any passing of law anywhere in my world. There is not anyone Black, White, Asian, or Hispanic in my world who knows me that thinks I have any white privilege agenda in any way. In the end I may be kind of a dick who doesn’t think anyone is a special snowflake but that in no way pins the racist hate you are spouting on me or any other person. Get it straight it is the 1% vs us all…

                  • tariq

                    For one nobody certainly not I ever asked you to listen to anything and for someone who is determined not to listen to something you certainly have a lot to say regarding it. Apparently you also have a knack for stating the obvious because everyone who has attained the level of a high school education knows how bills are passed into laws so that is just some useless information you could have kept to yourself. No one has to spoon feed me anything, everything that I talk about comes from experience and I work just as hard for me and my family’s living as anyone else for themselves and their families. People who claim they don’t see color are either blind or they are liars and as far as the one percent creating and perpetuating racism in order to continue to amass huge profits and maintain control is an absolute fact, but it does not alter the fact that it is real and devastating to the lives of so called minorities, particularly so called “Black” people and many, many privileged class people engage in it consciously or subconsciously.

                    • Michael Sholtis

                      Well congratulations you have now met someone that could give a shit about your color who sees the whole race issue as an agenda perpetuated by a select few carried out or taken to heart by those that cant see it the way I do. Sorry we don’t see eye to eye.

                  • tariq

                    For someone who is not interested and is not going to listen to my bullshit you sure had a lot to say none of which I care to or even considered reading.

                    • Michael Sholtis

                      Sorry trying to build bridges in my lifetime for bs that there is no need for, while both sides play at being children (as intended). Have fun with all that anger it should serve you well.

                      • tariq

                        Typical privileged person whenever a so called “Black” person don’t agree with their bullshit they just automatically label them angry so called “Black” men.

                      • tariq

                        Typical privileged class mentality, whenever a so called “Black” person doesn’t agree with you he is automatically labeled “angry” . So much for building bridges over bullshit.

                Google the term “white privilege” then come back and tell us there is no such thing as white privilege.
