Prince William County Police investigated a noise complaint last Sunday and ended up tasering and arresting two people, one of whom appears to be an illegal alien. Now the people who were causing the trouble in the neighborhood are in full grievance mode, complaining that they couldn’t communicate with the officers, despite one of the first officers on the scene spoke fluent Spanish, and that just because they were drunk, belligerent and uncooperative they shouldn’t have gotten zapped. What a crock. This attitude that everyone has to accomodate the behavior of persons of other cultures, no matter how many laws they happen to be violating at the moment, has got to end. This is America. We actually have laws and expect them to be honored. Just follow them.
The Westgate neighborhood where this happened was overrun by residential overcrowding and a frequent target of MS-13 and Surenos-13 graffiti before the Rule of Law Resolution was passed. Once that policy went into effect, the number of people moving out in the middle of the night carrying all the household major appliances with them was stunning. Now the problems seem to slowly be returning, and residential overcrowding and other quality of life problems are starting to pop up again. Incidents like this, where someone decides that they can unlawfully inconvenience as many neighbors with their behavior as they want and it would be wrong for anyone to complain about it, will without a doubt become increasingly common.
So when police get a call in this neighborhood, and it’s clear from the complaint we’ve got some cultural element at work here, the police know to respond with Spanish-speaking officers. We shouldn’t have to make this kind of accomodation, but we do, and perhaps it’s a smart idea. These officers end up spending a lot of their time educating people as to what the law is and handing out warnings, probably more than they do issuing citations and making arrests, from the look of the activity reports that get provided to the local neighborhood watch members. We spend a lot of taxpayer money trying to accomodate boorish people who can’t seem to get it into their thick skulls that we actually respect the law here, and that if they don’t, eventually there will be consequences.
So police show up at this party to explain that there’s a noise ordinance. The property owner is drunk and belligerent, and another person at the party decides to intervene and protect this guy from the police. That sets the crowd into motion, threatening the safety of the officers. So they get control of the situation with tasers, rather than firearms, arrest two people, and lo and behold one is still in custody days later while they clear up questions about her legal status. Color me not so surprised when this kind of behavior ends up relating to illegal aliens, as I’ve seen it time and time again.
I’ve little doubt that Mexicans Without Borders is going to show up and march somewhere as a result of this. If there’s an opportunity to play the ethnic grievance game, they want to be front and center. They probably wouldn’t want to do this in Westgate, as they’ll likely get a rather hostile reaction from the neighbors who have to put up with these kinds of shenanigans day in and day out. These folks are tired of the ethnic grievance game. They just want their neighborhood to be safe and quiet, and are quietly applauding that the irresponsible behavior of some of the newer residents has finally resulted in some consequences, rather than another set of warnings that will almost certainly be ignored.
