If you’re familiar with the story of the shoeshine boy then skip right to the image below.

The anecdote goes that avid investor Joe Kennedy was on his way to work in the winter of 1928 and stopped to have his shoes shined. When the shoeshine boy finished he offered up a tip to Kennedy.

“Buy Hindenburg,” he told the millionaire.

Kennedy soon unloaded most of his holdings. When pressed by friends and associates about his reason for selling, Kennedy quipped:

“You know it’s time to sell when shoeshine boys give you stock tips. This bull market is over.”

Less than a year later stock markets around the world collapsed, leaving tens of millions of people impoverished for decades to come.

It’s been reported that hordes of Chinese have transferred their life savings into stock markets in the hopes of striking it rich. According to Zero Hedge, some 7.2 million trading accounts have been opened in just the last two months.

Because, well, stock markets can only go up from here.

All you need to know about the Chinese stock market, and therefore all stock markets worldwide because of the incestual relationships in global finance, is summed up in the image below.

When Your Banana-Guy Starts Trading Stocks, You Know It’s Over

Presented with no comment… ok well one! WTF!?

No comment… not one… seriously.

And just in case you missed it, it’s not just Banana Boys who are now experts in day trading:


Like the majority of Americans who believe the U.S. economy is good and will only get better next year, millions of Chinese are completely oblivious to the bubbles that have been created around them.

The bust is coming.

    I’m in the industry. I talk to wholesalers all the time. American Funds, Fidelity, Oppenheimer, BlackRock, PIMCO, etc…

    Their Ph.D’s and CFA’s and market analysts at headquarters are invariably bullish or neutral. Never bearish.

    • watching and waiting says:

      Of course not. You are so right. They don’t want to lose the account and the commission that comes with it.

      That is why if you invest, YOU need to have a working knowledge of how the market works. Leaving your accounts in the hands of your fund manager and just trusting him is like playing Russian Roulette with a semi auto with a round chambered.

      Speaking from experience from a long time ago. Once burnt, lesson learned. Time is coming that a whole lot of folks are going to be homeless and broke over the market. 1930’s again if not worst.

          • Ive lived thru a few recessions and this depression and there is a lot of truth to this. Once you see the feeding frenzy, its over. At the beginning of this depression I was shocked to find employees of mine buying homes that I myself couldn’t afford. These were guys making $14 per hour buying $500,000 homes. They were also driving $40,000 cars, buying jet skis and boats, having a great time every week end and constantly talking about their stock portfolios. Some of these guys were asking for advances to invest. They just knew that their stock was gonna make them rich. Then Bear Sterns collapsed. A few months later these guys were living in their cars or camping out at Wallmart. Even today, 7 years later these guys still haven’t recovered and probably never will.

          • Braveheart says:

            Number One son, NO communist owns any of us or anything we have. If you gooks think you’re capable of taking it, bring it on. We’ll have some nice hot lead waiting for you. That’s one thing you’ll damned sure get from us.

            • DaisyD says:

              LMAO. This is the best post I’ve read in quite some time!!!!
              Next time you vote, internally investigate the one you wanna vote for as they, often times, happen to be the ones, that will be ready to sell this country to the Chinese (or anybody else) if they can make a buck out of it. Right now, a nice shank of the US in practice belong to China thanks to these criminal slim balls that call themselves US Senators and congressmen/women. In fact they are the ones that need to be taken care of first as far as hot led is concerned LOL. I don’t know about anyone, but I could never get myself to sell dime worth of this country to anyone else, just so I could secure that Yacht or that Learjet. This country is worth much more than that.

              • sixpack says:

                This country isn’t worth dick, to some dual-citizen elite who owes no allegiance to anything, but his own bank account.

                That’s what the majority of congress is…people who owe no allegiance to any country.

                • DaisyD says:

                  A country’s worth, whether it be this country or any other is not determined by what some asshole think of it (no pun intended). It’s determined by what the said country is made out of, whether it be the Manpower, infrastructure, natural resources, scientific quests, Industries, etc.
                  And if they owe no allegiance to anybody but their bank accounts, then why have they been elected? Regardless of their citizenship, they took an Oath, and that Oath is their Master.

                  This, on one hand, on the other hand, many have tried to expose the scums that are dismantling this country and have been Murdered. Such murders are usually listed under headlines as “Mr. X have been found in his office, dead of apparently self inflicted shot gun wound.”.
                  One thing with this country is the majority are very stupid. And I guess they adopt such stance as it is necessary now a day to do so out of self preservation.

            • Carpenter says:

              So you think the Chinese are communists? Oh boy. Are you a neocon supporter too? They say the same thing. China has a market economy, and it is in fact MUCH less regulated than Western markets. Their labor market is likewise much, much less regulated. Too unregulated by far, in fact. Oh, sure, there are laws about how they can treat the workers, but businesses ignore them and if any inspectors ever show up they are easily bribed. So it’s easy to just throw out toxic chemicals on the factory floor where the workers stand. Who cares if they get chronic diseases?

              Medicine – businesses sell crappy pills in the store for low prices, and since most people are stupid enough to only buy the cheapest products, believing the ads, the good – more expensive – products are outcompeted and disappear. Whenever a product is revealed to be bogus the business simply stops selling it for a while, then comes back under a different name. The police rarely bother to arrest anyone for this. It’s the libertarian dream, and everyone else’s nightmare.

              • sixpack says:

                How is that a “libertarian dream”?

                I think a libertarian would like to see a world where people are inherently HONEST and do not NEED to be regulated up the ass, to keep them from hurting people for their own greed.

                In fact, IMO, GREED doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere, except for capitalistic dreams, where money and wealth are more important than life and integrity.

                As I understand it, “libertarian” does not mean no regulation, it means a whole lot less control, in a world where the majority of people usually do the right thing…

                That’s just not the world we live in.

            • Ralphy Boy says:

              Where you gonna get hot lead? The last lead smelter in the US has been shut down by the EPA. You have to buy your lead from the Chicoms. California has banned lead bullets for hunting, a regulation that will be nationwide eventually. Lead fishing sinkers and lead bird shot are already banned. Even if you want to buy lead from the Chicoms, you won’t be able to, because it will be illegal to buy or possess lead in the near future.

          Monday Apr 27th. Silver just took a .90 cent swing up. Told you anything under $16 is a strong buy. No worry for some reason Silver drops in price the last few days of every month.

    • Gods Creation says:

      Simple answer is the Chinese are preparing to buy the stocks at rock bottom prices once Jade Helm has been started and the economy is crashed.

      • GC! Good to see you buddy. I was worried you have forsaken us. Whats your take on Jade Helm?

        • Rat Pack Rosey says:

          I think the Jade Helm conspiracy theories are all wrong. So much talk about ISIS going I think the military is preparing for ISIS in this country. Take a look at all the intel being released.

          • Anonymous says:

            Maybe they’re preparing to round up and deport the illegals?

          • apache54 says:

            rat pack,
            your theory has some merit. now what about using ISIS as a false flag event? what i mean is it would be a perfect time to have a small attack from ISIS and then they could make it into a big attack and thus declare martial law and NO elections ?? HMMMMMMM

            • slingshot says:


              Don’t say that. They are just getting started in Baltimore. GeeeeeWizzz.

            • sixpack says:

              I don’t think they’ll pull off a “no election” martial law as long as there’s a black guy in the white house. The real people in charge don’t like blacks either. In the last 15 years, they’ve used them as PAWNS, liars and thieves.

              If we become a dictatorship (outright, that is),. IMO it will not be until there is a white elitist in control. Someone like hillary, who will do their bidding no matter what. She’s proved that over the years.

              Anybody else noticed the several black female mayors lately? I saw another article yesterday, where the entire police force quit when a black female mayor with a criminal family history got selected.

          • Cara says:

            I was listening on Youtube to some theories about JHelm and a woman had researched federal and UN documents and read them online. It is a desensitization exercise that is slated to be annual but the ultimate goal is to remove guns and their owners per UN regulations. It is all about the UN and disarmament.

        • Gods Creation says:

          Hi Ranger,

          For years the “elite” have been speaking of their “Post 2015” agenda. Jade Helm is the “event” of 2015 that caps off the current plan of total destruction of the USA through a yet undetermined means.

          I suspect that everything a drill has been run for up until now will come to pass within the next six months, even though the events happened at the time of the drills in question (such as 911, Sandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon things. They will happen again, this time with no drill taking place to tip their hands in advance.

          I also suspect that we have not seen the last of ebola and other corp made bioweapons. Keep your silver generator going daily and drink a few ounces every day to make sure they can not penetrate your silver shield when they release them.

          There is nothing else I can do about it, but fend for my family. There is nothing to fear, no matter how much the corp wants me to fear it. I have a nice flock of chickens and a large garden, and some canned food stored up as well.

          I am right with myself and God. The outcome will be up to Him and in His time.

          It’s gonna be an ugly summer, and I am as ready as I can be for it.

          Good luck.

      -have an old school windable watch that doesn’t rely on batteries

      -having the only lit house on the block makes you a target

      -having fire extinguishers in every room is a good idea

      -duel sport motorcycles are easy to get around the city in

      -having a video surveillance system in your house and a central monitoring station is a good idea

      -don’t buy a convertible

      -have a few spare tires

      -have several generators and keep them topped off with fuel

      -a submachine gun is more useful than a rifle for patrol

    • Plan twice, prep once says:

      I got out in 2000, because it was obvious, I got back in a little late, but still did good.

      In 1997 it was even more obvious, I got out with minimal losses, and got back in a rock bottom. After the crash Obama couldn’t go a week without attacking Wall Street in his speeches. Of course the theme was always Wall Street’s evil and it’s all George Bush’s fault. When Obama went three weeks without attacking Wall Street, it was the perfect bottom.

      We are very near the top again, I am already getting out, as individual stocks and funds peak.


      • Plan twice, prep once says:

        Let me add just to make it clear, the propagandists will be framing this thing to deflect from the obvious that progressives have clearly engineered this upcoming crash.

        When the crash hits, Wall Street financial pundits will just give you the deer in the headlights stare, while claiming no one could have seen it coming, then invite guests who will blame all the enemies on the progressive enemies lists.

        I wonder if they might trigger it to purposely manipulate the upcoming election? Hmmm!

        • DaisyD says:

          We need to stop calling the Elections “elections” because they are not. More like “burlesque theatrics” taking place across Country.
          …and I agree with the rest of your post. If the bible is right on one thing in regard to this country, that will be what Mark 3:25 says about a house that’s divided against itself not being able to stand.
          But it’s too late to come together at this point. This country is gone. SADLY.

    • Johnathan Stiner says:

      How could they not be bullish when the government is giving away millions at zero interest rates. Free money that is then dumped into the stocks for massive returns.

      If you want a true gauge of the economic crash coming just look at McDonald’s earnings.

        Its not my job to help neighbors or anyone else. I will take care of only those who im responsible for. If I take care of me & mine and everyone else does the same we will be Ok. Im quite willing to let others suffer. They made their own bed let them lie in it.

        • Anonymous says:

          I’m thinking you wouldn’t want to have all those others ignore you if you end up in need, and no one can safely predict that they won’t end up that way.

          It’s true that you need to take care of your own house first, but it’s also true that you need to help others to the extent you can if you want anything like civilization to remain in existence (and if you’re Christian it is a duty to do so as well).

          • slingshot says:

              Christ spent his life helping others.

              Christ died to help you.

              Do you reject that, or just that you should try to emulate Christ?

              As Christians, we are to try to model our lives after that of Christ, He came in the flesh not only to pay the price of salvation for us (perfect sacrifice for perfect remission of sins) but to show us by example how He expects us to live.

              Then, there’s always that “Golden Rule” thing to consider ………..

          • Old Guy says:

            Yes indeed even if im in need I don’t want help. Its my life my bed ill lie in it. Our family is self reliant and the likely hood of sheeple being of any help to me is pretty slim. and Im proud to state im not a Christian. I have a much better religious superstition. My soul is mine I have free will. I never asked someone to die in a cross for my sins. I don’t want something for nothing. Ill take full credit for my good deeds as well as my bad ones. Im not trying to buy my way into heaven.

    • Adamantium says:

      Wish I could vote this up. I often read many “preppers” who are just waiting for the hordes to come knocking down the doors. In a lot of ways I agree and understand why, but this cannot be the default for everyone. Prepping and stocking simply to be an island in the chaos only serves to drive the problem worse. Many talk about social decay in America, preparing to remove yourself from society only feeds in to it. I personally view it like this, instead of appearing/being pre-isolationist (if not isolationist already) why not serve as an example to people on what they are doing wrong?

      • Old Guy says:

        The thing is as individuals we cannot solve the problem. We can only try and prep for out own survival. the fact is 90% will die. We prep to try and avoud being part of the 90%.

            Well, you should get ready for it. If the dinosaurs didn’t last, we, also shall go at some point. And from the great job of getting ready of self extermination mankind has done, that should not come as shocking when it takes place.

      • There is a parable of Jesus known as the Parable of the Ten Virgins. In this parable, five virgins are wise and five are foolish. There are all waiting for the groom to come, each in charge of a lamp. The wise virgins carried extra fuel for their lamps, but the foolish virgins did not. When the call came out that the groom was near, the foolish virgins asked the wise virgins for fuel. The wise replied,”GO TO THE MARKET AND BUY YOUR OWN FUEL, OR ELSE THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH FOR BOTH OF US (emphasis mine).” So the foolish virgins went to the market and bought fuel, but upon their return ,found that the groom was already there and the doors had closed. They begged to enter, but entry was refused. See how the wise virgins were prepared ahead of time and refused to share with the foolish? There is a season to give, and a season to withhold. While it is yet peaceful, we should be generous. The time is coming soon, however, when giving will not be a good idea and probably even dangerous.

    • Paranoid says:

      The non preppers outnumber us about 30to1. Only hope is they kill each other off. No point in trying to help them. They are why we have the problem.

      • apache54 says:

        that ratio will decrease very fast, after two weeks to a month most will be gone!

      • Rebel in Idaho says:

        Are you being optimistic or do you really think there are 10 million preppers in the US? I’d like to think so but I think far less than 10 million are actually prepared for much though several million probably have some intermediate level of preps.

        • apache54 says:

          Rebel Idaho,
          although lots more have woke up, most people i am around have done NOTHING and live day to day going to the grocery store, so eithere way you cut the deck it will be a very NASTY death scenario for LOTS of city slickers and any others who have not got there food supplies inline! and even though some will try to help others it will NEVER be enough for very many, of course allot depends on what the diaster is. HEY, have a good day in Idaho, sure like lots of things about Idaho, has been on the list to look at as a potential area for late years and those i think are here now! LOL

        • Paranoid says:

          10 million adult preppers; no. Total. yes close. There are now between 4-5million NRA members. Don’t know how many Mormons, so yeah I think we are close to 10 Mil. Around here WalMart sell N-Pack food, they don’t do that for six guys.

          • apache54 says:

            well with 310 million in the states and 10 million preppers and if 75% perish, things are gonna be slim around here until we get invaded by millions of others!better keep good supply of ammo, gonna take a bunch to keep the horde away

          • Genius says:

            Not all nra members are preppers and a lot of mormons arent preppers either. I would say there are around 1 million true preppers in the USA. I personally know a LOT of people and only 1 is a prepper but still isn’t awake.

The snow & ice was bad. This couple I know went and bought a brand new 4 wheel drive so they could get to work. The electricity went out. so they had no heat. They had a wood stove but no wood. They didn’t have $50 to buy a rick of firewood. so they set around in their cold freezing house in blankets. My sister suggested I take them a load of fire wood? I told her fuck them they aint my responsibility.

      Most of these folks have been around a long time and have known them as such, much rather have a large group that are all working togethr than be the dickhead odd man out that they all dispise.

        You’re the man. I am with you all the way. People do come around eventually but as my mother use to say, “As long as there is life, there is hope!”, “As long as we are together, we can get through this!” The shock of 5he catostrphe may stun everyone at first but I would not underestimate people’s will to survive. Where there is a will, there is a way. People will find a way to survive and to thrive in community. That is how the successful Amish folks survive and thrive. That is the model to immulate going forward. Bad people will be known and marked. They dig their own graves. Thanks for your insight, Kula!

    Aside from pulling it all out and stocking up in gold, lead, and MRE’s. For those of us that have modest amounts in a company sponsored 401k, with a preset group account choices of where to put our retirement investment, can anyone shed light on where a good or perhaps a “more safe” account type would be in preps for a stock market situation as predicted?

    Is the idea that nothing is safe?

      Are you 100% debt free? Do you own your property outright (please no arguments about property taxes) and/or your BOL? Do you have 6 months worth of expenses in cash in a nice safe at home? Also some silver and gold in that same safe? Decent collection in your gun safe (all the accessible ones are just working guns and you should have a back up for each) and a nice amount of ammunition? 1 year of food?

      If you’re debt free and totally squared away then it’s time to go find an investment professional for what to do with the extra money. Please save that for the truly last step and for when you can do without the money if it all goes wrong. Buying fishing poles and teaching the grandkids to fish is likely a better investment than anything a broker could sell you.

      yes, sailing jim, it really IS that simple….there is NO investment out there that isn’t in a bubble right now…….STUFF, that will be usefull after the collapse this year….that’s where you put your money……food, and a way to KEEP it from the dumb masses, is your best bet.

    Also have bullion cubes of same. Just found out if you go to a Walmart on the Messkin side of town you can get Knorr cilantro, chipotle, onion and garlic bullion cubes, Knorr calls them ‘mini cubes’. Cheap. About a buck and a quarter for a box of 20. You gotta have seasonings for those rice and beans so invest in stocks, and that my friends is the tip of the day.

      Really???: I’m not a silver expert, I don’t follow it religiously, but I think everyone should own some and to the extent that they can after their preps are in.

      I have been pondering the JP Morgan silver purchase since it has been publicized and wonder whether it is connected to the MASSIVE shorts that the big banks have used to depress the silver price.

      In that event, JPM COULD be facing contract obligations for physical silver and need to own it, just in case they must make good. Don’t know. Maybe someone does.

      Just a thought. 🙂

    Seems the stock market is like the new gold rush it will come to an end. There is no easy $ only hard earned. But hey that’s not what people want. They want $ for nothing. Even state gov wants in on easy $ they wanna open casinos to fund their agendas on the backs of dreamers. Don’t see the economy going on much longer. If the gov and banks want an economy they either got to create millions of jobs that pay a living wage or extend credit to people already in the red. I don’t bother with retirement investments I already have a pension being funded at 25 percent and 401 k plans don’t match anymore so I just do my own thing. I’ve seen what happens to elderly peoples $ so by the time I reach this point there will be more ways to steal from the elderly. When it comes to$ I don’t trust any retirement plan. Hell if my way is no good then I will go get programs why not I paid into them I deserve them more than some other people.

    What Will Happen To You When The Dollar Collapses?

  28. There are ways to make money in the market if a person is sure of the direction and is able to get the timing relatively close with an inverse ETF.
    Jerry Robinson from Follow the Money has some interesting things to say about those subjects.
    I personally am not in the market nor do I have any plans to get in.
    I tend to think like Durango Kidd and invest in my own abilities and company.

  29. Propane is the only way to fuel emergency generators. The fuel will be just as good in 100 years as it is today.

    • Anonymous says:

      Or diesel.

      One advantage with propane is that you can rig dual fuel systems for gasoline or propane easily enough (not cheaply, though) and one advantage of diesel is that you can run about anything in them from used automatic transmission fluid (they love that stuff for the most part) to vegetable oil as long as you have some straight diesel to get them started and running and don’t shut them off.

      Small diesel engines on generators are not cheap, but they last a very long time in continuous use without much in the way of maintenance.

    Joe I worked with same types of people they bought houses that they paid more for than the house was really worth and new 4 wheel drive trucks Harley’s you name it. I said to my self we don’t make this kind of $ to have all this shit. I kept driving my little ranger living in my paid for house. Then the bust of 2008 came the company sold like 75 percent of the business we all got laid off. Some people were there for 15 years. I saw men crying that day. It’s the same where I work now I can see the place declining I listen to guys complain about the place but they won’t quit and somehow the grass is greener on the other side. I know it’s only a matter of time before the doors close so I work all the overtime I can to get ahead as far as I can. I like the job but won’t cry about it. I will move on that’s all there are plenty of places that do what I do. Most if not all do not pay union pay scale so I know I will be taking a pay cut. Might have to get retrained to do something else. Ben through all this before and have always survived with dignity intact. Like I said make all the $ you can now. I only come home to sleep. I get 20 hrs of OT every week I’m not gonna pass up any $ just to spend time with my family. Your either making $ or spending$ I’m not interested in spending.

  31. Ass hat says:

    All industries are in a decline they cannot get help and are always short handed. I’ve seen work given away to other companies because it can’t be serviced. I’ve seen other companies say we cannot take your work because we are short handed too. Even though they would make $ they have to turn it down too. So the future workforce is gonna be non existent IMHO. People that can get out of the workforce early are doing it. I save as much $ as I can so I can get out as fast as possible told wife I don’t want to be abused everyday of my life because the company is short handed. By the contract my work can keep me up to 14 hrs a day if they need me for the operation it’s rediculous to me that’s like working a double 5 days a week. So you can see why I wanna save as much$ as I can and get out then I will get a job at Wally’s or something just to maintain my lifestyle. I don’t think there is such thing as a career anymore. Mismanagement and greed does not care about long term company survival. They will sell out in the end and the worker won’t know a thing till the end of the day on a Friday. This is where we are at people.

        The earthquake around Katmandu is heart wrenching, to say the least.

        After watching the special on Faux news about Bill Clinton and his partner(s) in crime and how they clawed their way to find their “gold” I wonder what lies ahead for that country/region.

        Haiti has been raped by Clintons’ outstretched hands; along with US taxpayer money funding grants to help them achieve their nefarious goals to steal the real wealth in Haiti.

        Time to ratchet up their fraud on Nepal/Tibet while the countries are paralyzed with strife.

        Book has been written about the Clintons and their connections/wealth. Worth a read if there is anyone left who doesn’t already recognize the truth behind this criminal syndicate.

  34. Ass hat says:

    People are getting violence confused with property damage in Baltimore smashing up a police car is property damage not violence on a policeman. Why does media call it violence. If you burned the city down but no one was injured or killed then that is not violence. They should burn that shit hole down firemen will be overwhelmed and not be able to put all the fires out. If they did this everywhere someone was wrongfully killed by police the gov would have to do something. It would be the polices fault IMHO even the firemen would blame them eventually. Molotovs are very powerful more so than a gun just because they have the ability to destroy. Civil War is coming very soon.

    With the “pair” we have in the blighted white house at the present, why not Graham?

    Of course we do nothing for we are waiting for them to act. That is Declare Martial Law and put troops on the streets. No doubt about what is going to happen then. Also the matter of taking the High Moral Ground. That will last about 5 minutes.
    So by Presidential exec. order once Martial law is declared everything belongs to the Government. The banks declare that once they are openly insolvent they get to take away our savings and all the other monetary investments to bail them out. It’s Their money not Yours in the first place when placed in a bank.
    What happens to the Free Shit Army? No more free money so they riot in every city. Inflation might come and higher prices for everyday items and food.

    Our Lord Jesus Christ tells us what HE thinks of “lukewarm” middle of the road stragglers in Rev 3:15-16. “I know thy works and thou that are neither cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot I will spew thee out of MY mouth”.

    Teaching people “love and tolerance” without including right and wrong has led to the plight America now finds herself in.

    This is reinforcing destructive behavior.

    “What no one expected is what Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake admitted in a press conference on Sunday: that she asked the Baltimore Police Department to “give those who wished to destroy space to do that.”

    Big earthquake in Nepal. killed folks in 4 countries. Thousands dead. they are calling it a 6 .2 when in fact its above a 8.o. Im still hoping the magnetic pole shift and the clatyclisms it causes will derail the NWO -UN & Agenda 21 plans.

      The thing that gets me with these killings of supposed innocent people,,,
      They were ALL up to no good.
      Either abusive thugs, or drug dealers etc,,,
      WTF do you expect the cops to do? Excuse me sir are you able to speakto us now?
      When in almost every case it is suppressed that these people either threatened the cops or were up to no good. Period! End ofstory,
      Like i said,
      Act like a stupid baboon (I care not what color you are)
      Dont be surprised when you get treated like one…
      Have seen that here on little old Maui.
      Girl steals lincoln town car, tries to run over pedestrians and cops after a chase, cops shoot her as she is trying to run down another cop,,,
      Everybody is like oh poor thing, she was one good girl,
      Guy driving stolen vehicle, cops corner him, he goes for the glove box whencops tell him to get out with hsnds up,,,
      The shoot him, found s gun in hlove box.
      Family and people,,, awww poor thing he was one good boy just had trouble witda drugs,
      Stolen vehicle spotted st night driving erraticly then found parked in a lot late at night,
      Cops approach tell guy to get out withhands up, guy tries to run over cops and hits cruiser, cops shoot him
      Everybody is all awww poor ting,, he was one nice guy why they wen shoot em,,,
      Im telling you folks, people are getting dumber and dumber and dumber,,,is just nuts,,
      Ive gone 36 years since i was 15 without getting shot by the cops, know many who have never even really had interaction with them in longer than i have been alive,,
      Dont do stupid shit and you wont get shot by the cops! Real simple!

        I hear what your sayin KFarmer

        and good points

        did you hear about the 20 something kid on a bike in FL that recently got shot?

        he wasn’t doing anything wrong but “Suspiciously riding his bike”
        and “suspiciously getting off his bike” after being told to stop

        and the cop followed him because the cop had never seen him in the neighborhood before (like he knows everyone?)

        although I do agree 90% of these are because of actions of the person

        but there are plenty of examples of cops going off the reservation

        My gut is telling me these incidents are made to provoke an uprising , and a force against the police to usher in a riot , and a lock down on purpose

        sometimes the line is getting blurry .. does a shop lifter deserve to die? does a drunk party gal deserve to die ? there is defined over reaction going on in certain areas of this country

    Seven Baltimore police injured on Monday.

    The Bloods, Crips and Black Guerilla Family have joined together to kill LEO’s.

    Six shot in two days in my city.


  61. slingshot says:

    Riots again in Baltimore.

    Started after the funeral.

  62. There is a moral of all human tales;
    ‘Tis but the same rehearsal of the past.
    First glory and then freedom — when that fails,
    Wealth, vice, corruption — barbarism at last.
    And history, with all her volumes vast,
    Hath but one page.

    (Canto IV)
