Commentary from Ace of Spades:
This Cannot Go On
The media -- including the very liberal pseudoright media like the New York Post (Seth Mandel's old paper, right?) -- immediately declared that the pregnant woman defending herself from unending menace was to blame.
You know, in most states, anyone in a physical altercation has a duty to retreat before using force. But if the person keeps trying to retreat, and an aggressor continues pursuing -- not permitting retreat -- as little miss Struggle Session did here -- then the duty to retreat is satisfied and then someone can proceed to using force.
The white woman was arrested.
Because of course.
The cops have decided to make us each fight for our own lives. There is no help coming but self-help. So what the fuck do you expect us to do? Just... go along with any street vigilante who decides to subject us to an involuntary, physically-coerced struggle session? Just say, "Ah well, the permanent brain damage I suffer from this savage gang-assault is a small price to pay for the cause of ending White Supremacy?"
Fuck you. That's false imprisonment -- and people are allowed to use a reasonable amount of force to free themselves from it.
This is getting very dangerous.
People have no choice but to resort to self-help -- force -- to defend themselves, and they're going to start doing so. And don't count on having a lot of SJWs on the jury to convict them for defending their lives.
Politicians -- mayors, chiefs of police, prosecutors -- need to make it plain to the rioters, street-beaters, car-blockers, car-attackers, looters and shooters that no one is required by the law to make themselves a martyr for Black Lives Matter and yes, in some situations, deadly force to escape from some situations is legal and will be permitted.
But they won't -- they don't want to upset people. So they'll say nothing... and then the shooting will start in earnest.
The police better put the Racial Vengeance Vigilantes in hard check before the Counter-Vigilantes start traveling in packs. If police will not maintain civil order, "irregulars" will deputize themselves to provide their own dubious services.
