The Problem With An Increased Police Presence In Muslim Communities

... completely escapes me.

Seriously, I don't get it at all. Following the latest wave of attacks* Ted Cruz has come out in favor of having an increased police presence in Muslim communities. The media and his opponents are having rage spasms, sputtering at him that it's racist or islamophobic or whatever. Why? Just what is wrong with more cops in the neighborhood? What are they going to do to the residents other than keep them safe? If more cops are a problem, you've got bigger worries than Islamofascism.

Say you lived in a high crime area or maybe your neighborhood has experienced a wave of rapes and robberies. When the mayor and chief of police announce that they're going to step up patrols on your streets, do you react in horror? "Good Lord, don't send more cops! That's the last thing we want!"

When you drive through a neighborhood where everyone has bars on their windows and businesses have razor wire atop their fences, do you think, "Boy, I'll bet these people want the cops to just leave them alone?"

Under Islamic law, apostates are to be killed. That is, if you decided you want to leave Islam and become a Unitarian, your fellow Muslims are supposed to kill you. As in kill you until you die from it. If you think this is like one of those crazy rules in Leviticus that Jews and Christians ignore, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, around 90% of the population thinks this is a good thing.

Don't think this happens in Muslim communities in the West? Dig this.
A popular shopkeeper was stabbed to death by another Muslim in a "religiously prejudiced" attack hours after posting an Easter message on Facebook to "my beloved Christian nation".

Asad Shah, 40, a devout Muslim originally from the Pakistani city of Rabwah, had his head stamped on during a savage attack, according to one eyewitness.

Around four hours earlier the victim wrote online: "Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation. "Let's follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ and get the real success in both worlds."
The assailant was just carrying out Sharia law. Sharia law is a central part of Islam. See how this works? It's like the Mafia. You can get in, but you can't get out and they'll use violence and intimidation to see to it.

If you lived in a community where that was prevalent wouldn't you want more cops on the street? If we're going to assume that most Muslims aren't completely mad, then you'd have to think that when threats and intimidation started, they'd want someone in authority to turn to so they could report it and expect a firm response. That would be a policeman, in case you were wondering.

So circling back around to the beginning, I don't get it. What's wrong with more cops on the streets in Muslim communities?

Here, a police officer recruits a young Muslim boy into the "Little Crusaders" program by giving him a candy in the shape of a cross and having him watch The Greatest Story Ever Told on an iPad.
* - Notice how I kept this blog post evergreen by not mentioning the location? With the Islamofascists, there's always a "latest wave of attacks."

Well, the problem I can think of is that cops have to come from somewhere. If you send more into "muslim communities" regardless of whether those communities need them or not, then who is getting left with insufficient police?

Looks like we're going to need more cops if we're going to import more Muslims. It's part of the price you pay for having a multiculti society.

Flipping the problem on its head, if you're running a benevolent Muslim nation and you import a bunch of Christians, you will likewise need more cops to prevent your, err, youths from demonstrating the finer points of Sharia on your new residents.

Maybe this is just the nature of putting together dramatically distinct cultures.

Do you mean *this* Ted Cruz? What? Does he get to play both sides of the street?

I don't get it either, KT; we already know that the "no go" areas happen because these Islamic gangs move in and take over, and the good people are more afraid of the guy who will slaughter them and everyone they love than they are trusting of the police to stop it.


The link is to a blog post, which rants and then wants you to watch a video. No details other than that it's somehow related to Trump.

I'm not going to pump money into the accounts of click-bait videos; if he actually said something related, why don't you quote it and post a link to the source?

Ilíon said...

You surely know that I will not allow you to waste my time nor will I passively stand by while you misrepresent me or someone else with one of your anti-rational rants.

To the general reader -- in actual fact, what Mr Trigger Warnings did is post a short video clip of Ted Cruz -- who is not a natural born citizen (*) -- trying to blame the recent Brussels terrorist attack on Trump.

(*) and may not even be a US citizen at all

Foxfier said...

No. Either it's not related, it's a misrepresentation, or there's no source.
Possibly multiple of those.

Those words, they do not mean what you seem to think they do.

Ilíon said...

Foxfier would make a good (for some senses of "good") 'atheist', since she "reasons" like most of them do.

Foxfier said...

Thank you; I like to think that I would make a good atheist-- a good atheist being one who is honest, and applies the same rules to himself as to those he disagrees with. This does not make them popular at all.

Those tend to not stay atheist too very long, and make very, very good Catholics.

But as utterly fascinating as you seem to find the subject, I'm the topic of KT's post, either.
