Wednesday’s video: Defund the police and people will buy lots of guns




Tie police hands and you will see lots of citizens with AR-15s

We learned some people in Minneapolis have begun to protect their streets, as we see in this report:   
Minneapolis residents have begun patrolling their own neighborhoods after violent crime across the city surged in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death in late May.
The patrols, some armed, are part of a largely grassroots efforts to protect neighborhoods, businesses, and residents from rioters and criminals. Some groups have constructed barriers at the entrance to their neighborhoods and control who can enter, according to the Wall Street Journal.
All of this reminds me of the people defending their town against the James gang in the famous Northfield, Minnesota bank robbery of 1876.  In other words, the people couldn’t rely on the authorities and protected themselves.  They blocked the exits and Jesse James was lucky to get out alive.  By all accounts, it was the beginning of the end for the James Gang.
In this case, the people of Minneapolis would rather rely on the police.  In fact, they love their police as most people in the country do.  Unfortunately, irresponsible leadership has tied the police’s hands and left the citizens vulnerable to criminals.
Two things have come out of all this spectacle.  First, people in Democrat-run cities have learned that their leaders won’t defend them.  And second, the 2nd Amendment is here to stay.

2007: Cal Ripken, Hall of Fame

Back in 2007, we watched Cal Ripken get officially inducted into The Hall Of Fame.

My first memory of Cal Ripken goes back to 1981.    It was the crazy strike season and I caught a game on TV with Ripken at shortstop.   

In 1982, he was the regular third baseman and hit a home run on opening day.  By mid-season, Cal was playing shortstop and the rest is history:  MVP in '83 and the O's won the World Series.  Then came the another MVP in '91 and the "streak" that went on until 1998.

Unfortunately, Ripken played in bad Oriole teams.  Yet, he was out there every day playing and putting some good numbers, such as 431 Hrs and over 3100 hits.


We remember a great guy who clearly belongs in the Hall of Fame.

1983: Steve Garvey streak ended at 1,207



On this day in 1983, the San Diego Padres were scheduled to play a double header with the Braves.   During the first game, Steve Garvey suffered a dislocated thumb sliding at home.   He did not play in the second game and his streak of consecutive games ended.

Garvey signed with  San Diego at the end of the 1982 season and played in the 1984 World Series.   

He had a great career:   .294 batting average, 2,599 hits, 272 HR & 1,308 RBI.    Garvey was the 1974 NL MVP and came in second in the 1978 vote.

Great player!    Who knows how long his streak would have gone without that unfortunate injury?

1996: Tommy Lasorda retired from baseball

Dodgers Dugout: The 25 greatest Dodgers of all time, No. 8: Tommy ...

From 1976 to 1996, Tommy Lasorda led the Dodgers to 2 World Series (1981 and 1988), 4 NL pennants and 7 division titles.  

He left after a a heart attack and an angioplasty procedure the month before.


As a manager, Lasorda was one of the best:  1599 wins.    He was the NL Manager of the Year in 1983 and 1988.   In 2000, a retired Lasorda led the USA baseball team to a gold medal.

A wonderful baseball man, one of the greatest ambassadors of the game ever!  And a lifetime Dodger going back to his days as a player in the 1950's.
