Ridgewood NJ, a reader asked ,”How would/should movements like BLM stop the violence in inner city communities? What should local municipalities (black-run or not) do to stem the violence? One way could be to allocate more resources to education, to allocate resources to community programs, to allocate resources to places like Planned Parenthood, etc. — all things that many commentators and authors on this blog would be against. So what do you experts think?”

The Ridgewood decided to ask a  expert  Shelby Steele is the Robert J. and Marion E. Oster Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He specializes in the study of race relations, multiculturalism, and affirmative action. He was appointed a Hoover fellow in 1994.

The Ridgewood blog complied these quotes from several interviews .

Englewood Cliffs NJ,  A teen who organized a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest this summer was hit with an unexpected bill for $2,500 for police overtime from the borough. Obviously if you plan an event that expends police resources, you need to fit the bill. That’s standard procedure. Every town needs to do this when a permit is pulled. Pay up.

Reader says , “It is against the law to commit anyone involuntarily unless he/she is a danger to him/herself or to others”

“As several posters said, “We’ve offered help. He doesn’t want it.” It is against the law to commit anyone involuntarily unless he/she is a danger to him/herself or to others. Some people are so disturbed that they just want to be left alone. He’s not standing in the street begging, is he? When it gets hotter, or colder, he may decide he can use some help and will accept it then. It is also against the law to publicly urinate or defecate. We could legally have him picked up, and then what? The United States has lots of agencies designed to help people such as this. But they have to be willing to take the help. There used to be a drop in center, run privately by donations, to help mentally disturbed people with no questions asked in Hackensack. They lost their lease–but they couldn’t have helped this man. Homeless shelters will take him for a month unless he is an addict or is constantly drunk. There are actually some small shelters for those people. He is probably a result of NJ choosing to close psychiatric hospitals and throw their residents onto the public for assistance. I well know that I am not offering any solution to his presence. In reality, with the law the way it is, there is no solution. He most likely was living on the streets in another community and was literally picked up and dumped here. Someone mentioned that the “Black Lives Matter” group could take a real Black and, with much constant effort and concern be able to help him understand that he needs help and find help for him. That would certainly be a more fruitful use of their time than blocking streets and traffic and expecting everyone else in the world “to see it their way.” But, this group seems to be interested in making noise and proving that their “rights” can do away with others rights as they –think, not know, as they assume–that they are “educated” “with it” etc. What was the quote about nothing is achieved if it is only sought “through sound and fury”? That does seem to be all that they are capable of doing. They are young, yes, and the young always know what is best for the world until they are forced to quit living “in the world as they want it” and accept “the world that really exists today”.  “

Ridgewood NJ, recent Ridgewood protests have brought into focus the group  “Black Lives Matter” and what its all about . While it’s a catchy phrase and few would argue with it  ,the Ridgewood blog is a bit confused with the message .  When an unarmed black man is murdered by a white Police officer , “Black Lives Matter”.

But where they lose a lot of people is with the messages inconsistency. Most American have heard of George Floyd, the African American man who was the victim of egregious use of lethal force by police in Minneapolis , but we do not know the name of even one of 87 African Americans who were shot in Chicago on the July 4th weekend ?  By the way 13 were children and 17 died. So did those  “Black Lives Matter”  as well ? Or should they change the name of the movement to , “Only Certain Black Lives Matter”, or “Black Lives Matter Only When it’s Convenient “.
