Florida Cop Encourages Black Residents To Die In Hurricane

Polk County Sheriff tweets he’ll be checking IDs and barring those with warrants from emergency shelters

Polk County Sheriff tweets: “If you go to a shelter for #Irma and you have a warrant, we’ll gladly escort you to the safe and secure shelter called the Polk County Jail. If you go to a shelter for #Irma, be advised: sworn LEOs [Law Enforcement Officers] will be at every shelter checking IDs.”

For white Americans, it seems being called racist is now worse than being responsible for someone’s actual death.

  1. Black people are disproportionately impoverished (due to systemic oppression and generational poverty stemming from slavery).
  2. Poor communities are more susceptible and prone to crime (because they’ve been — and continue to be — denied access to resources).
  3. Even when rates of crime are the same among races, Black and Brown people are more likely to be profiled and convicted (because the police and courts are inherently racist institutions).
  4. News outlets disproportionately depict Black criminals (because racist fear mongering is good for ratings).
  5. And most people in prison are Black or Brown, because all of the above.

When police in this country try to justify their outrageous behavior they often resort to reminding people about the existence of child rapists.

Grady Judd shamelessly tries to hide behind sexual predators to justify his abuse of power.
  1. If you cram a few hundred people in a room, you’re almost guaranteed to include some sex offenders. Roughly 1 in 432 Americans are registered sex offenders, and most sexual predators don’t ever receive convictions or face registration.
  2. Any sexual predator in a shelter packed with frustrated evacuees and “sworn LEOs” doesn’t pose much of a threat to anyone.
  3. Sexual predators have no problem infiltrating American police forces, so who’s to guarantee the cops at the door aren’t the real threat?
