Why are cops called "pigs"? Where did the term come from?
The slang term "pig" in reference to policemen didn't become popular until the late 1960s. The term was used by protesters at the 1968 Democratic National Convention and subsequently popularized in the media. A group calling themselves the "Yippies" (counter-culture white people) protested outside the Chicago convention in opposition to the Vietnam War. These protesters carried a small pig as their presidential candidate, and they began calling the police themselves "pigs" when the officers attempted to disband the demonstration. The media headlines declared, "Police Called Pigs" and, according to the School for Champions, the term caught on, especially among younger people and the disenchanted.
A rose by any other name is still a rose? Anarchist, revolutionary, terrorist ... Black person ... all negative synonymous terms in America now?
Just seeing this thread . . . 7 years old!! Join the conversation . . .
"Just because an officer is black, doesn't mean he’s less likely to use violence against black citizens. The best look at this comes from Brad W. Smith, a researcher from Wayne State University in Detroit. In a 2003 paper, he looks at the impact of police diversity on officer-involved homicides in cities of more than 100,000 residents and cities of more than 250,000 residents.
Regardless of city size, there wasn’t a relationship between racial representation and police killings—officer diversity didn’t mean much. At most, in smaller cities, female officers were more likely to commit shootings than their male counterparts, a fact—he speculates—that could be tied to sexist pressures on female officers, who might feel the need to act “tough” to prove their bona fides.
What mattered for police shootings wasn’t the makeup of the police department, it was the makeup of the city. In all measured cities, an increase in black residents brought an increase in police shootings.
David A. Clarke Jr. could be your president one day . . . he's armed and dangerous so study up on him now before it's too late. Wiki is a good source to describe this guy. . .
David A. Clarke Jr. (born August 21, 1956) is the 64th Sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. In 2002, Clarke was appointed to a vacancy by Governor Scott McCallum, and later elected that same year to his first four-year term. He was re-elected in November 2006, 2010, and 2014, and is currently serving his fourth full term.
He bleeds blue . . .
Clarke was born in Milwaukee, the son of Jeri and David Clarke Sr. His father is a former paratrooper with the 2nd Ranger Infantry Company. Clarke Jr. attended Marquette University High School.
His career in law enforcement began in 1978 at the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD). After 11 years as a patrol officer, Clarke was promoted to Detective, making the Homicide Division less than 1 year later. In 1992, Clarke was again promoted to Lieutenant of Detectives. The next step was becoming Captain of Police for the MPD in 1996. In 1999, Clarke took over the post of Commanding Officer for MPD's Intelligence Division. Clarke then became Milwaukee County Sheriff in 2002, currently holding the same post.
Position on gun issues
In January 2013, Clarke was featured on a series of public radio ads that said citizens could no longer rely on the police for timely protection and should arm themselves. Later that month, Clarke appeared on the CNN program Piers Morgan Live, with Milwaukee Mayor and gun-control advocate Tom Barrett, who "said it was irresponsible of Clarke to 'basically imply' that it won't help citizens to call 911 when they need help."
Christian Centurians lawsuit
In 2006, Clarke invited members of an evangelical Christian organization, the Fellowship of Christian Centurions, to speak at several mandatory employee meetings, at which the group members proselytized. Several deputies complained about the Centurions' proselytizing, but Clarke refused to stop the presentations. The sheriff deputies' union and two individual sheriff's deputies (a Catholic and a Muslim) successfully sued Clarke in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. Clarke appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, which upheld the lower court's ruling in 2009. The sheriff did not seek review in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Clarke is registered as a Democrat, which is advantageous in heavily Democratic Milwaukee County.However, Clarke is almost universally regarded as a conservative.
Clarke is a frequent and vociferous critic of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, referring to it as "Black Lies Matter" and terming the movement as a hate group. Clarke has referred to BLM members as "subhuman creeps" and has "calling for the movement's eradication 'from American society.'" Clarke's stance on the movement has been criticized by the Milwaukee chapter of the NAACP and other activists.
Clarke's has harshly criticized various black critics of police abuses. He has called former Attorney General Eric Holder an "a-hole" and accusing him in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee of "outright hostility' toward police; referred to Al Sharpton as a "charlatan"; and criticized Beyoncé for her halftime-show performance at Super Bowl in 2016.
Clarke is a strong supporter of Republican Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, saying that he would "do everything I can" to help Trump win the presidency. Clarke has been added to the list of speakers at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
