A Logic Troll Debunked

troll_sprayHere are some superficially reasonable-seeming words from a logic troll, in a not quite offensively sarcastic tone:

Come on man, dozens of police, including black officers, covered up the murder of this poor black child. Usually they catch murderers, but that day, they decided to go against the grain and risk prison time just to screw over this black kid and help a murderer get away!

The medical examiners who spent years in school and make good money, risked prison and throwing their careers / lives away just to help cover up for this popular killer!

Everyone, including black officers, went along with this evil racist plot to screw over a murdered black child!

Don’t use logic, just believe!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Let’s unpack this.

—– Come on man, dozens of police

Not necessarily. There would be a few people who really know what went down. And a lot more who have learned from experience that sometimes it is better not to ask questions, if they like their jobs. Or need to keep their jobs, or need to keep their kneecaps or their lives. Humans are pretty good at looking the other way, for quite a lot of different reasons. Intimidation can be amazingly effective. History shows things have happened that entire towns have clammed up about.

—– including black officers

Really? Does someone reading this know the number of black law enforcement officers in Valdosta? How many would be in a position to know something that contradicted the official story?

—– Usually they catch murderers

Actually no, they don’t. In the USA the clearance rate is said to be around 65% which means about one-third of murders go unsolved. And among those that are checked off as solved, how many are the wrong person? There are all kinds of plea bargains and false confessions and mistaken witnesses and coerced statements and and lying snitches out there, as the Innocence Project and similar organizations have proven.

—– but that day, they decided to go against the grain

Are you kidding? A cop will brag that he is so good at his job because of his special talent for thinking like his prey. They really pat themselves on the back for their ability to get inside the criminal mind. Also, look how many seriously bad people are security guards or some other kind of pretend law enforcement, who tried to get on a police force but were too unstable for even the police to accept. Also, their grain mainly consists of protecting each other. Maintaining the Blue Wall of Silence is their prime directive. If any law officer stands to lose anything if the truth comes out, it probably will remain hidden.

—– and risk prison time

We might all be surprised by how many ex- law enforcement officers are in prison, and since convicting them is so very difficult, it’s frightening to think of how many un-indicted felons remain in the “serve and protect” business. On a daily basis, plenty of cops risk prison time for the sake of goals that are, compared to murder, relatively trivial.

—– just to screw over this black kid and help a murderer get away!

And to cover their own asses and protect themselves from prosecution for various offenses that might range from murder to negligence to false reporting to – who knows what-all. But no, not just to help a murderer get away. They are trying to prevent the unravelling of the whole fabric of their decayed, diseased and doomed society.

—– The medical examiners who spent years in school and make good money, risked prison and throwing their careers / lives away just to help cover up for this popular killer!

I can tell you ALL about a doctor who risked prison and threw away his career and life for his hobby of taking pictures of women’s genitalia with cleverly placed cameras in the guest bathroom. A thing like that brings on the realization that anybody might do anything.
