Origins of the police

Do we need Community Policing now?

Works in theory

The Five Points district of lower Manhattan, painted by George Catlin in 1827. New York’s first free Black settlement, it became a mixed-race slum, home to Blacks and Irish alike, and a focal point for the stormy collective life of the new working class. Cops were invented to gain control over neighborhoods and populations like this. The Five Points district of lower Manhattan, painted by George Catlin in 1827.

Cops were invented to gain control over neighborhoods and populations like this.

In England and the United States, the police were invented within the space of just a few decades—roughly from 1825 to 1855.

The new institution was not a response to an increase in crime, and it really didn’t lead to new methods for dealing with crime. The most common way for authorities to solve a crime, before and since the invention of police, has been for someone to tell them who did it.

Besides, crime has to do with the acts of individuals, and the ruling elites who invented the police were responding to challenges posed by collective…

Is Christmas A Birthday?

1 Comment

Seasons greetings zobopians! After all of the American protest over police brutality and other things I sort of let Christmas creep up on me without much thought. Then I was reminded that anybody could have their birthday on Christmas day. So, if you believe that December 25th is a birthday, (for you or a young kid maybe), you could make a donation to honor your beliefs at Cheerfulgivers where gifts will be purchased for less fortunate parents to give to their child on their birthday.

Every $10 provides a toy-filled birthday gift bag for a young kid on their birthday. The child won’t know it came from you, but you will!

Cheerfulgivers

Kid with birthday bag.

$10 dollars gives a kid a birthday.

Merry Christmas and until neXt time…

Almighty King Alfred

The Almighty King Alfred! Fact or fiction?

Hello fellow zobopians. Do you know everything, now, past and present? Do you think you do? With all the events that have happened in Ferguson, Missouri (Mike Brown); New York City (Eric Garner); et al., wouldn’t you think the United States government have prepared for the kind of social protest that occur in the streets? The USA government/police agencies have had a lot of practice with handling the public masses. The militarization of the local police forces didn’t happen overnight. It’s been a consistent process since the Civil Rights Movement. During the Civil Rights Movement citizens had to solve problems without the tools of computers and cell phones. Today, we have the power of social media to put together a mass protest quicker. That means its harder for the law enforcement agencies to keep up with the masses. I don’t think the masterminds of “King Alfred” saw the power of personal technology coming. Yes, we the people have the power of modern day tech to fight the powers-that-be but what do we have to show for it. The powers-that-be are still in power! I guess that’s the whole PLAN.

Below are pictures of a PLAN for minorities called King Alfred. You may think it’s fiction but it could still happen. All that matters is the “idea”. [Click pics to enlarge.*]

What Histories Do You Read America?

2 Comments

Hello fellow zobopians! So, what histories do you read? History or His, Story? Are Black citizens ever going to be a part of history or anybody’s story? We’re aware that the victors write the history. Unfortunately it’s not accurate. You know, “just the facts.” The losers or former slaves don’t get to write history. It’s no wonder people can feel like they’re left out, #BlackLivesMatter.

– – –
“…What histories do you read, Gus? Tell me about the history of the American armed forces, and I can show you how important Negroes were to those forces; tell me about the history of American economics and I can show you where Negroes made up the bulk of those economies by being poor or left out of them altogether; tell me about the history of religion of America, and I can show you where, as long as there have been Negroes in this hemisphere, religion has been an absolute lie; tell me about the history of American politics, and I can show you where American politics would be vastly different today if Negroes had had a real voice in them…” –Chapter 24 from the book ‘The Man Who Cried I Am’ by John A. Williams (1967)

*Note: We don’t use the term Negro anymore, it’s an old term from an old time. Until neXt time…

Possible Gmail Scam

Hello again zobopians! My next blog post came to quick for my taste. I like to mull things over before I post again. But this junk e-mail got me thinking. How can anyone’s Gmail account be over the limit when the limit is astronomical. Computer storage is cheap and expansive. Scammers think we’re all dumb!

Man O’ man, are they out to get us & you! Hello fellow zobopians! I don’t know what a link purporting to warn me about something has a name , http://gofu203.riverplatewinsitall.com/591204799128a63777034145091400 ; notice the word “install” in the link name? Did you notice it’s mis-spelled?

Here’s the e-mail below I received from their server :
DISCLAIMER: Don’t go to the above link, it could be dangerous! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
____________________________________________________________________

Dear Reader,

Get ready.

Because a major scandal has broken.

It has to do with what we believe to be a conspiracy between the U.S. government and some of the biggest food producers in America.

This topic of this story is so controversial, Fox News banned a story on it from being aired… and fired the two reporters who covered it.

If you’re happy with the president, do not watch this presentation.

This could be the one that finally brings him down.

[CLICK HERE] for the shocking story.

I’m warning you, though. What you’re about to see might turn your stomach.

Sincerely,

Doug Hill

Did Mike Brown Cry I Am?

“Why are you telling me your secrets?”

Hello fellow zobopians! America has a lot secrets it doesn’t tell its Black citizens. Reading novels by Black authors can give a guy lots of insight to my country of USA. Reading is fundaMENTAL. I’m currently reading a novel titled, ‘Then Man Who Cried I Am’ by John A. Williams. Here’s an excerpt to give you an idea of how America may really be:

“It must be pretty awful for a white man to learn that one of the things wrong with this society is that it is not based on dollars directly or alone, but dollars denied men who are Black so dollars can go into the pockets of men who are white. It must make white men ponder a kind of weakness that will make them deny work to Black men so that work can be done by who are white. How it must anger them to know finally that we know they deny women who are white to Black men, while they have taken Black women at will for generations.” [From part 6 of the book.]
