Venice Update Supports Police Chief, LAPD, Pacific Division — All Lives Matter

Make no mistake the Venice Update supports Chief Michel Moore and the Los Angeles Police Department and particularly the Pacific Division that serves the Venice area.

The Update does not advocate in any way a “kiddie college,” such as the Seattle shindig running the City. The Update does not support thieves stealing, in the name of looting, or setting on fire or damaging in any way other people’s property. Update asks: Who are these people who advocate and approve and justify such action? They should be sent to the Right vs. Wrong School until they get it right and right with respect for others’ and their properties. What happened to the basic “Golden Rule.”

Update heard that the laws, the organizations, the public has to be changed to comply with these people who are so offensive and unlawful.

Update says: “All Lives Matter.” We are one nation (under God), indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

Perhaps, there can be changes made as a result of all this and that is good, but don’t forget and remember that these cops, mentioned below, represent all nationalities, races, religions …

Let me tell you about The Badge and the thousands of good men and women it represents.

    This is nothing more than a spiteful act of incitement by the Mayor and the elves who helped him contaminate the street with this obscenity. BLM is a segregationist, racist-coven that has done more to damage and destroy our National Culture and Character by uncivil disorder and mob mayhem then any external enemy that we have faced. They are a fifth column Anti-American threat that is polarizing our people and will only foment more racism and set back the advances of our Black Communities 100 years.

    Without Columbus and Washington, the signers of the Declaration of Independence, President Lincoln, General Grant and others – none of us would be here now. Ask yourself: Where would you be? Is it your intention and hope that by destroying the statues you can turn back the clock – change history – and thereby change your obviously distasteful present situation? Unfortunately – you can’t. But this is America, and unlike the totalitarian states – you are free to love it or leave it. The choice is yours.

    What we can say without fear of contradiction about changing history is that without a doubt the world would be a more peaceful place if we simply eliminated the vandals and their ilk rather than the statues and monuments.

    Concomitantly ask yourself – without the 388,000 Black persons who were brought directly to our shores, albeit and unfortunately as slaves, where would the present Black Community be? Also, how have their descendants honored the sacrifices of their ancestors? Face the Facts: We live in an imperfect world, because we are not perfect, but we have the ability to right our wrongs without destroying history or resorting to Burning/Looting/ Mayhem and such.

    Do you really want to erase history and turn the clock back to the Stone Age?

    Real Americans will not be fooled, intimidated, bullied or blackmailed by BLM or anyone else! We will boycott any team, sponsor, or TV station that chooses to patronize BLM in any way, shape, or form. By such patronizing, polarizing, politicizing actions these teams would no longer represent their fans or the Cities that they now represent. They would represent the segregationist racist BLM coven. IF IT MEANS SHUTTING DOWN THESE TEAMS SO BE IT!

    We stand up for America, our Flag, our National Anthem, our Constitution and “Equality for all”. We only kneel for almighty God.

    ALL LIVES AND FUTURES MATTER!

    June 1, 2020 “Newsom said”
    “For those of you out there protesting, I want you to know that you matter,” Newsom said. “To those who want to express themselves… God bless you. Keep doing it. Your rage is real.” Sac Bee

    “While large family gatherings are technically forbidden”

    He still does not think protesting has anything to do with the spike. Fireworks and family must help the transmission.If the governor is not going to condemn mass protesting where absolutely no social distancing is taking place, then I won’t abide by his mandates. It’s hypocritical and he’s losing all credibility

    Marxism in play. Divide the people into categories, centralize power in the government, sieze the Plebians rights & property. Cali is Communist country thanks to Pelosi, her nephew Newsome, Komrade Garcetti, the rotten city councils, big tech censors and the Marxist Media.

    In November, vote for a party that encourages looting and arson, empties the prisons of murderers, rapists and child molesters, places sick and contagious patients into vulnerable nursing homes, vows to suspend ALL deportations for 100 days after taking office, shuts down churches, business while opening liquor stores, free rent, jails store owners trying to feed their kids and commits to forcibly enter your home to remove your legally purchased firearms.
    Or vote for the other side and send the ice cream lady back home.

    Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report.

    Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported.

  4. Just the facts

    pEOPLE ARE leaving California in droves. It is no longer affordable to live here for most residence. California has some of the nations highest taxes , and thousands of fees, and licence requirements on anything and everything. The govenor ignors the difficulties American coitizens living in Cali are having and gives hundreds of millions to non citizens who are actually in the country illegally. He loves policies that pay out massive amounts of money to illegal invaders and treats them better than real American citizens. My guess is Californias problems will get much much worse as millions leave the state for more affordable states, and conservative governors. This will erode the money collected from taxes on sales and property as well as income, and everything else California taxes. California in a few short years will be left decayed and destitute beyond repair, with a bankrupt economy, crumbled roads and infastructer, millions of homless , and a massive population of tens of millions of illegal invaders living off the state, and paying very little back in.

    I heard Amazon is doing their part for police reform they are pulling The Andy Griffith Stow from the lineup. They felt Barney Fife was way too aggressive toward Otis the town drunk. The show was frought with police brutality.

  6. Ed Washington

    When you vote in November, remember the liberal vision for America playing out every night on your TV screen; so called peaceful protest in the form of rioting, looting, robbing, burning down buildings, destroying monuments and businesses. Five decades of stagnation in America’s most marginalized places, all of it under Democratic—now “progressive”—political control.
    The failure of the liberal model is by now so embarrassing that the current owners of that model have created an alternative universe of explanations, such as blaming it on American settlers in the early 17th century, statues and monuments, police, or the nonexistence of “justice.
    Yes, When you vote in November, remember the liberal vision for America playing out every night on your TV screen each night.

    I won’t be reading this blog ever again. Black lives matter.

    Last week it was a 70% drop in Police recruits nationwide. Now it is approx. 80% nationwide. This is not good.

    100 shot and 14 dead over the weekend in South Chicago crickets from BLM

    Garcetti has adopted the same failed polices for the people of Los Angeles and this is just the facts. Something to think about when marching to defund the police.

    Los Angeles police are on the lookout for two men who they say sexually assaulted potentially 13 women or more in Palms, Venice, Culver City and Marina Del Rey.

    Witnesses describe the suspects as Black males in their early 20s wearing athletic clothing. One suspect is tall and slender, the other is shorter and heavier set, according to the LAPD.

    “Though they have not been seen together, both appear to be connected to the silver Mercedes and are likely working together,” the LAPD said.

    Here is the rub people. If you are white identify the suspects call the police, you could wind up on video, accused of racial profiling and lose your job or business for being racist. This is the new world BLM has created. This is why these suspects will never get caught unless they are caught on video in the act of sexual assaulting a women. No white male or female is going to risk losing job or business to be labeled racist. 13 woman and climbing.

    I have family in Seattle in area where the empty police station is. They said wait times are up 300% for 911 and their friends who own property in CHAZ are at a loss. The city council has socialists on it and the Seattle Public Schools are dominated by SJW teachers who want to cut the police budget by 50%. They sent me an article in the Seattle Times about an activist named Jesse Hogopathian who is masquerading as a history teacher at the local high school close to the police station. It sounds crazy over there! Where is the mayor? Seattle leadership is very far left now.
    Have you been on the Ocean front Walk lately 75% of stores are boarded up encampment everywhere. Tents all over the place and on the beach. Ocean Front Walk used to be a thriving tourist destination. Now it’s fitly and crime ridden with no end in sight thanks to Mike Bonin and Eric Garcetti lack of leadership.

  11. Bret Keller

    Los Angeles the murder rate hit a 250% increase this year. Democrats will keep voting for people like Pelosi and Maxine Waters for 30+ years and expecting different results. How’s that working out for you?
    I don’t think there are any Republicans left in LA to blame. Now what are you going to do?

  12. Venice Residents

    Washington state mayor says Black Lives Matter movement is ‘domestic terrorism’ after her home was vandalized.

    Black Lives Matter is our matter. Black Lives Matter is our campaign.”- Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of Muslim Brotherhood front CAIR Council on American-Islamic Relations. CAIR has been caught funding Hamas and Al Qaeda. BLM also has very strong ties to Muslim Brotherhood front MSA (Muslim Student Association). Also, one BLM member who is facing charges for arson and attempted murder learned her bombmaking skills in Palestine while working with Hamas to protest Israel.

    I’m sorry if the naive who participate in BLM protests don’t know what they’re supporting. They should become more knowledgeable about BLM and its connections.

    Maybe they don’t know about the truth of BLM. But they should know that US law guarantees US citizens the right to keep and bear arms for “THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE”.

    The 2nd Amendment isn’t about hunting deer, or even about personal defense. It is there to ensure security of the state.

  13. Venice Resident

    What a joke. You’re racist trash. You don’t deserve to call Venice home, and we don’t want you here. Go to hell.

    Black Lives Matter.

  14. Shae

    Venice resident here. Get out of here with this blatant racism. You don’t speak for most residents. You don’t speak for me. Black lives matter.

    You bootlickers!!!

      What I don’t get is we Chinese we’re also slaves who were brought here to build the railroads. How come you don’t see us protesting? Maybe because we lay low, work hard, and slowly climb the social ladder and earn respect?

      • reta

        Lee has a great point. In addition to all the points Lee makes, there was a language barrier that had to be overcome too. The Chinese did not speak English.

        • Reta, enslaved Africans in chains didn’t know English any better than ambitious Chinese immigrants did.

          Robert is gaslighting with the “lazy, good for nuthin'” trigger trope in order to prevent readers from noticing that he’s lying.

          Other than the language barrier, the only thing the two groups had in common was legal discrimination against their non-white status. Even then, discrimination against Chinese wasn’t legislated until after they had been here for some time – and it was eliminated for them before it was eliminated for African-Americans.

          Chinese citizens voluntarily bought tickets, or were loaned the money, for passage to the United States. Some fled unrest at home. Some were entrepreneurs – thousands came to build wealth from the Gold Rush. Some came to work on the railroads.

          Africans were enslaved. Chinese workers were paid. White workers were paid more. Chinese railroad workers – and Mormons and Irish workers – lacked amenities that white workers enjoyed.

          Do you see the pattern of white racism yet?

          Chinese workers weren’t abducted and chained as slaves. They weren’t bought and sold by “masters.” Any hardships they endured were for decades, not centuries. Did Chinese immigrants sometimes face grassroots discrimination – even violence? Yes, but on a far smaller and less embedded scale than African-Americans did. They weren’t crammed on top of each other in holds of sailing ships, or allowed to get sick and die during passage, or tortured, or raped – both genders, or lynched, or dismembered, or denied education, or cheated into indentured servitude after “emancipation,” or promised/then denied the right to vote, or own property, or regularly intimidated, scapegoated and murdered time after time after time by police. Do you really think the Minneapolis cop had to keep his knee on the neck of a cooperating, handcuffed, motionless detainee until minutes after he died? Did he need to make sure his prisoner was past dead? Look at his face. He knew exactly what he was doing. He knew he was sending a signal to the world that, in this country, it was ok to subjugate and kill peaceful black people for no reason, with no consequence, in 2020. Is that the great point you want to support?

          Read your history, girl! You’re smarter than you’re sounding here. Ask Liz – she’s smarter than both of us. In any case, now’s a good time to learn how policing became a pillar of our nation’s structural racism: https://plsonline.eku.edu/insidelook/history-policing-united-states-part-1.

          • Robert Lee

            I love people like you, that pull my history from the internet. if you didn’t know it by now library cards are free. Too bad for you that you cant re-write history in the library’s of the world. You can only learn about it.

          • reta

            Jed, did you know that many slaves were given the opportunity to return to Africa. Liberia was founded on many who returned. Many were offered passage to go back to their homes after the civil war. If your family dates back to those days, I am curious as to why they didn’t take the opportunity. Do you know? Believe me I am nor justifying slavery or the selling of anyone. Just curious, if you know or if your family was here during the civil war.

          • Tom Bannon

            Achieving prosperity in America isn’t usually about race. It’s about lifestyle. Nigerian immigrants are one of the most successful groups in America, vastly outpacing native-born White Americans in terms of financial prosperity. Why? Work ethic, nuclear families, and a dedication to education.
            One group generally works and study hard, does’t cry about the rules and succeeds above nearly everyone in spite of having their first generation born in the US: the other group possesses a completely opposite ethic, blames the “system,” and makes prison their home.

  15. Carol B.

    Why do you think black lives don’t matter? All lives matter. Don’t twist this as racist against black people. When allllllllll lives matter it will stop being an issue. When anyone or any group learns how to get what they want…the right way.: Ask for something reasonable, ask the right person, at the right time (timing is everything), ask the right way/showing respect; and be prepared to graciously accept that things will not always go your way…that’s life. Life isn’t fair sometimes. Work on yourself and try again. When you cram things down people’s throats, demand, use violence, destroy property of others, and loot/steal your message gets lost and people don’t want to have anything to do with your movement…
    You do not have the right to damage monuments or buildings or anything you do not own-period. It’s not racist. It’s the law.
    Also. When you want something from someone-ask nicely….

  16. Black. Lives. Matter. I cannot believe you use Venice as place to implement your close minded, misinformed, inhumane claims. Now I’m off to spread the word that Venice Update is pure racist trash, bye!

  17. Rachel R.

    Well at least we know veniceupdate.com is publicly racist. It is organizations like this that use the Venice name, yet are not part of the community, that make other racists think it is ok to move here and discriminate against our homeless community and our BIPOC community. Supporting a corrupt system of oppression that targets a specific segment of our countries citizens is not where our tax dollars should be going. You do NOT speak for Venice.

  18. Mike Bravo

    Just when i thought you guys couldn’t get any more racist or tone deaf. Wow.

  19. Art Hammond

    This is wha is going to happen to you. Since Garcetti has defunded the police. “In Camden NJ, violence is much more common. There were 1,968 violent crimes for every 100,000 people in Camden in 2017, by far the highest violent crime rate of any city in the state. Crime is often concentrated in areas with limited economic opportunity. Get use to it in Los Angeles.

  20. Rod Binkman

    More than three-quarters of U.S. law enforcement officers say they are reluctant to use force when necessary, and nearly as many — 72% — say they or their colleagues are more reluctant to stop and question people who seem suspicious as a result of increased scrutiny of police, according to a new study published Wednesday by the Pew Research Center.

    The 2014 officer-involved shooting death of a black teen in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson put the national spotlight on police use of force and officers’ interactions with minorities. Since then, top-ranking law enforcement officers and policymakers have debated the impact of the so-called “Ferguson effect” — officers becoming less proactive in their policing out of a fear their actions will be second-guessed by their superiors and the public.
    Garcetti referred to LAPD as killers. He needs to be recalled. Homiacides are up 250% shootings up 56% Homeless up 14%

  21. Samul R.

    Newsflash for Venice: if someone is breaking into my home, I may call 911, but recent history shows that I cannot expect help. I have always been prepared for self-defense, and have now ratcheted the level up a couple notches by enhancing passive and active perimeter protection.
    This has nothing to do with the police, but rather our pandering political leders. It is pretty clear law enforcement and police protection, and the safety of people and property, are things they have decided to selectively use as political bargaining chips.

  22. Working Stiff

    Garcetti the City Counsel and Hollywood have not only defunded LAPD. Now the will be directed by the mob to seize property from harding working people who have worked there who life to own. This is evidenced by the rent moratorium he created during Covid-19. Good luck landlords of recouping past and future rent. The constitution only applies to the ultra rich and the have nots. The rest of us working stiff are SOL.

  23. Ed Washington

    Here is a big one that Update didn’t mention. LAPD racked up 40 million in overtime during all the looting and yes ” protesting” to protect the city. The officers were promised overtime pay. Which they deserve. Garcetti decided not to pay them. Told them they can take time off instead. And by the way all the protesters that were arrested for violating curfew were let off with no fines. That stinks!!!
