Video has surfaced of another violent Hut! Hut! Hutting! – this one performed by a Virginia armed government worker over . . . an out of date safety inspection sticker.
According to The Washington Post, Derrick Thompson was stopped by a Virginia AGW – a tatted and steroidal AGW (see the video) – because his car wasn’t displaying the latest government-mandated sticker.
A “crime” of extreme seriousness, apparently.
The AGW – Charles Hewitt – also claims to have “smelled marijuana,” another heinous “crime” substantiated by nothing more than the AGW so claiming.
A fair minded person might say he smells BS. And he’d actually be smelling something.
The AGW ordered Thompson out of his car, the usual over-reaction (which actually isn’t; it’s very deliberate) to minor infractions of law in the Age of Hut! Hut! Hut!
Thompson objected to this – mildly, in reasonable tones, without any attempt to physically resist. There was no “flight risk.” There was no risk of anything – except to Thompson.
His objection triggered the clearly jacked-up muscle head, who told Thompson with spittle-spewing fury “I am specimen” – a reference apparently to his bulging biceps – before practically licking his chops, smiling at the camera he knew was recording him and announcing that an “ass whooping” would be ensuing.
Hewitt is a man who enjoys his work – and knows he can get away with it.
Rather than de-escalate and deal with a trivial traffic infraction via a conversation and perhaps a ticket, Hewitt used the minor infraction as the pretext to beat the hell out of a man for the real crime of objecting to his unbounded Authority.
Thompson wasn’t servile enough, in other words. This is the one intolerable offense – though it’s not actually on the books. Anyone who dares to question an AGW risks his life, regardless of “the law.”
Naturally, no charges are forthcoming against Hewitt.
The Post quotes Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano as follows:
“Although we can all agree that this officer’s demeanor (italics added) does not conform to what our community would hope to see from law enforcement officers, our review is limited to issues of criminal liability . . .“Bearing that in mind, this Office has determined that there is no basis for a criminal charge arising from this incident.”
And they wonder why they’re hated.
Making matters worse, Thompson is black and Hewitt is white – which plays into the narrative that AGWs are attacking young black guys like Thompson because they’re young black guys.
In fact, AGWs are attacking – period.
Your skin color won’t immunize you.
It’s not a race problem.
It’s an out-of-control AGW problem. I can personally attest to the nature of this problem as a middle-aged white guy who was given the Treatment for not being sufficiently Obedient. Also over a petty traffic stop (minor speeding) which almost escalated into an extreme Hut! Hut! Hutting!
These AGWs have been “trained’ – in the manner of vicious pit bulls – to attack at the least sign of looking askance. They have been trained in military tactics – which equate a citizen arguing with them over a traffic infraction with an enemy combatant pointing an AK at them.
Both are met with equally ferocious “shock and awe” tactics but without the justification of an enemy or a threat, in the case of the citizen being argumentative.
Or not wearing a Face Diaper. Or opening one’s business – in defiance of Gesundheitsbefiehls.
The fact that this is countenanced behavior makes it all the more egregious. An AGW who gets this enraged – and this violent – over a minor traffic offense and mere disagreement over the nature of the offense is someone who has no business in any position of life and death over others.
Watch the show, folks.
That’s straight from the AGW’s mouth. Does it make you feel safe to know such an AGW is on the prowl? Armed?
That he might cross your path one day?
