Cuomo’s ‘Say their names’ reform agenda



  • From an email. Seems like a good list.

    1. I am announcing the "Say Their Name" reform agenda following the murder of George Floyd and an ongoing pattern of police brutality against black communities. The four cornerstones of the agenda are: Transparency of prior disciplinary records of law enforcement officers; Banning chokeholds by law enforcement officers; Prohibiting false race-based 9-1-1 reports and making them a crime; and Designating the Attorney General as an independent prosecutor for matters relating to the deaths of unarmed civilians caused by law enforcement. Next week I will work with the State Legislature to get these policies done.


  • Transparency...good, unless the accusations aren’t verified.

    Chokeholds...good, although it could result in more violent methods of subduing someone. Could backfire.

    False 911...how wasn’t this a crime already?

    Independent DA, cool.



  • And let's publish the complete statistics by race.

    Including all rates per capita.

    Let's find out exactly which is the good race and which is the bad race.

    That's the point, isn't it?



  • I have long said that what started as a push for equality has become a push for advantage. Advantage is much easier as it requires nothing of the recipient and only acquiescence of the bestower. Equality requires real work on the part of both.



  • @Mik: POTD.

    'Course, it's early yet. 😊



  • Having had some time to react, I'm really pissed off about that big-ass yellow lettering on the street in front of the White House. It is surreally awful. It needs to be disappeared -- which it will pretty soon, when enough traffic has rolled over it. Then it will be a big faded dirty yellow blotch. In front of the People's House.

    So enjoy your gesture, Muriel.

    Muriel the Erudite. She is a Obama-style speaker. Ringing phrases that thrill the soul and bring a tear to the eye and contribute exactly nothing.

    Things just keeping getting better and better.



  • Don’t tell me you’re tired of winning already, Cats.



  • @jon-nyc Sadly, I fear so.

    It's still a block or three away from the White House. And the guy occupying the building shares a big part of the blame for it being there. He's done nothing to fix this. Absolutely nothing.



  • A block or three away is still stupidly close. And I don't care who is responsible. It's just all wrong, for everybody and everything that is used to be the US.



  • I don't think proximity to the White House has anything to do with how bad an idea it is. And they placed it there because of what happened at Lafayette Square this week.



  • You mean when they used the gaseous agent that caused eye and skin irritation but was decidedly NOT tear gas?



  • I don't think the president should need to be involved with large scale graffiti on the street. Hopefully he has better things to do.



  • No, jon, I of course mean the thousands of special forces terrorists trying to assassinate police officers at a peaceful demonstration with imaginary chemical agents and magical thinking.

    That is utter bull shit.

    Tell me exactly why it was his responsibility to fix it in the first place? Obama was there for 8 years, what the hell did HE do to fix it? Nothing. But he did a hell of a lot to drive a wedge in things. Trump put more blacks to work, created more business opportunities in black neighborhoods, than any president before him. By what right do these loud mouthed, spoiled little shit boxes out "protesting" go out and tear it all down and then bitch that it Trumps fault? Blacks utilizing the worst part of their culture, unable or unwilling to control themselves like civil humans, white kids trying to copy their thug culture, blacks who rage about racism when not a single one of them have the slightest fucking clue what racism even is, who have been taught by a crippled society that they are entitled and are owed something, a situation that took decades to create - you tell me how that is somehow Trump's fault!!

    I'm fucking sick to death with all of it. Not a damned one of them are principled protesters. Every fucking one of them is a self important, entitled dickwad just out taking advantage of another opportunity to go out and vent their pent up rage over being such a useless sack of meat.
