South Carolina Legal Experts Advocate For “The Safari Principle” – Officer Slager Should Have Stayed In His Car… And Not Chased Walter Scott…

The first advocacy for “The Safari Principle” surfaced prior to the George Zimmerman trial, in the summer of 2012, when the professionally aggrieved first began the meme: “He shouldn’t have gotten out of his car”.

Historically we used to blame the victim by saying he/she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, politically it became too difficult to define where the wrong places were, and simultaneously legislators continued to struggle defining the right vs. wrong times people were allowed to be in these places.

In order to protect the criminal class a more specific rule was needed.

After various opinions were considered eventually the advocates settled upon The Safari Principle – A selected narrative used throughout 2012/2013 as a point of advocacy driving home the belief that George Zimmerman had no right to follow, then exit his vehicle, when he saw a suspicious Trayvon Martin peering through windows and casing houses.

The “Safari Principle” evolved to further claim ‘if you do get out of your car, you deserve what you get’ with the implication by the left-wingers’  that young black males cannot control their behavior.

Shortly after the grievance advocates of Ben Crump, Natalie Jackson, Daryl Parks and the congressional black caucus announced their own support for the Safari Principle – another incident surfaced in Virginia when two reporters for the Virginia Pilot stopped, and exited, after their car was hit by bricks.

The couple was attacked by a mob of somewhere between 30 to 100 young black males while shouting “justice for Trayvon”.  After the reporters left the hospital the Virginia Pilot editorial team quickly apologized for not following the Safari Park rules, accepted the beating of their reporters was the fault of the couple who stopped their vehicle, and the newspaper promised they would join the advocacy movement.

big mike 3Fast forward through several more examples to August of 2014 and Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson exited his vehicle after Mike Brown punched him in the head and tried to gain his service revolver. The meme of The Safari Principle was quick to surface again, LOUDLY.

Officer Darren Wilson had no right to get out of his car after the attack.

By exiting his SUV Wilson was to blame for Mike Brown charging him in the street. Again reaffirming the liberal belief that young black males cannot control their behavior.

Subsequently the grievance advocates pointed out Officer Wilson was ultimately to blame for shooting Mike Brown. If Wilson had followed the Safari Principle Mike Brown would still be alive today.

After Mike Brown was murdered by Officer Darren Wilson, the Safari Principle advocates applied the same meme to explain how Zemir Begic was guilty of his own murder, again in Saint Louis.

Zemir Begic exited his vehicle in the vicinity of three young black males who beat him to death with hammers. Begic would be alive today if he had only followed The Safari Principle rules.

So it comes as no surprise to see The Safari Principle meme now being used in South Carolina against police officer Michael Slager:

(Via Post and Courier) The North Charleston police officer who shot and killed Walter Scott after stopping him and a passenger for a traffic violation should have stayed with the car rather than run after Scott, a legal expert and former police officer said Monday.

“This is a matter of police practice, not a legal issue. Legally, there’s nothing wrong with an officer chasing a fleeing driver and leaving the passenger. It’s just not a great idea in most cases,” said Seth Stoughton, an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law.  (more)

Officer Slager chasing Walter Scott was a clear violation of The Safari Principle.

      That is the whole point of socialism/communism. The Soviet system almost outlawed self-defense for this particular reason and to this day a problem exist whereby the victim of a violent crime can go to jail for too much of a success with self-defense / retaliation. This is a class-based thing — a petty criminal, such as a thief or robber, was likely to be from the lower (to be protected and to be the base of the regime) class, hence the attitude. It would not matter if the victim was from a lower class as well, because the State had a right and a duty of a sort to exercise its power over common people anyway. Because of the before-mentioned original design features of the Soviet legal codes, you can go to jail in places like Russia for shooting and killing a robber who was trying to rob you with a knife. There is a popular recent (a few years) story about a petite girl who stabbed her rapist (a well-known criminal twice her size with a lengthy rap-sheet) to death was ruled a socially dangerous criminal and went to jail before trial — thank G-d the court set her free.
      This is our future as well, if America continues to vote leftyists in.

Not only do they have terrinle economics as they tend to be liberal, they are soft on crime to the point the VICTIM is blamed and have an extremely high level of violence.

I realize anything I say afterwards may then come off as sounding condescending, or trite, but what I’m awkwardly trying to express is that I value your opinions on this, and I’m glad to have your input. I bet the only people the BGI dislike more than whites who don’t agree w/ them are blacks who don’t agree w/ them, and I imagine that could suck. I was glad to hear the Scott family supposedly told Sharpton NOT to come (*Dana Perino on The Five said this).

                Btw, I’ve made about 5 typos already today, but yours–“string armed robbery” made me giggle. 🙂

        Leaving the radio on during a stop is totally unprofessional. The music is interfering with the recording of what is going on. But to me it tells me it was simply a routine traffic stop over a burnt tail light as the cop stated, not a race related profiling stop as others want people to believe, and the cop expected no trouble otherwise he would’ve turned the music off to ensure the recording was crystal clear. The cop also knows a black passenger is in the car and does not question him in any fashion at all. But playing music during a traffic stop is beyond ridiculous.

    This is exactly what has bothered me about this case from the first news snippet I heard of it- before it was ever posted and discussed here and so many of the details were uncovered by treepers.
    I knew the political race baiting whores would leach onto this shooting and add fuel to the already absurd narrative that’s been in full swing since Trayvon. (No offense to whores)
    The more stage and voice they are given, the more liberty law abiding citizens will lose. We will begin seeing more of the ridiculous and dangerous regulations and laws coming from the DOJ and other government entities like disparate impact.
    This is what matters about this case to me just like the Zimmerman case mattered to me.
    Regardless of whether or not one feels Officer Slager was justified or not, if you think this won’t someday affect your way of life or the lives of your children, I believe you are mistaken.

      The other day, I was dipping on a twitter convo between Judge Alex Ferrer (sp) and a treeper. The judge seemed convinced that the cop will go down for murder, even with the taser lead seemingly attached to Slager angle. I really wanted someone to challenge the judge to suit up on a full duty belt and vest, strap on an orange gun and a live taser, run a foot chase, struggle with a unwilling to be taken into custody subject for at least a minute, allow the subject to control the taser and fight from there. How many drive stuns can the judge endure before he either loses his weapon or subdues the subject by any means necessary. It would be a good lesson for the public.

      For that matter, I would love anyone else minimizing the effects of a drive stun to take a few and see how well they can retain anything on their person that the person controlling the taser wishes to remove from them.
