Nebraska State Senator Says He’d Shoot A Cop ‘And Then Ask Questions Later’

CBS St. Louis, March 27, 2015

Nebraska State Sen. Ernie Chambers made a series of controversial comments regarding police officers, saying that if he carried a gun he’d shoot an officer first and ask questions later.

An audio recording from KFOR 1240 uncovered Chambers, who represents North Omaha’s 11th District and is the state’s only African-American senator, comparing law enforcement to Islamic State militants and saying he’d shoot a cop if he owned a weapon.

Chambers said he “wouldn’t go to Syria . . . wouldn’t go to Iraq . . . wouldn’t go to Afghanistan . . .” because local police terrorize residents daily.

“My ISIS is the police. Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do us daily. And they get away with it,” said Chambers, WOWT-TV reports. “You know what the [Douglas] County Attorney said, Don Kleine, if the officer makes a mistake–if he’s wrong–but he had reason to think he was right, then he’s clear. I cannot get away with that and shoot you and say ‘I thought he was going to do something.’

“The police are licensed to kill us–children, old people,” he said.

Chambers said that if he owned a gun, he’d use it as police officers use weapons against residents of Omaha.

“If I was going to carry a weapon, it wouldn’t be against you or the people who come here that I might have a dispute with. Mine would be with the police,” said Chambers. “And if I carried a gun I’d want to shoot him first and then ask questions later like they say a cop ought to do.”

    When i saw the article on AR newsfeed I new immediately this was Ernie.

  • If Chambers shot a cop, he would be answering questions later, rather than asking them.

    Unless he did it in Texas, after which he would be unavailable for comment.

      Unless he did it in Texas, after which he would be unavailable for comment.”

      Or, unless he did it around Michael Christopher Scott.

      “Unless he did it in Texas …”

      If bankers do it with interest, would it be fair to say that Texans do it with … …

      … … Damn. I’m stuck for once. Somebody please help me out.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      In Texas, he would be unavailable for anything but an autopsy…

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      I always here that about Texas, but I never see it. Why are all the people from south of the border coming in to Texas if Texans are so tough?

      I guess it is all the advertising to gullible people. If you advertise it enough, some dumbASCII will believe it.

    Nebraska State Sen. Ernie Chambers is an idiot. No state senator should talk like this. As an elected official you have a responsibility to represent your constituents by speaking and behaving in public in a dignified manner. This kind of speaking is not dignified, and this behavior is an insult to the people who elected you.

    Sorry to sound like a demented spinster, but it’s the truth. No one outside of AmrenLand seems to accept or even understand this.

    To a small extent, I can understand the “man’s” point. I have had two “po’zess’un a’ marijuana” felony convictions dating back fifty gad-dam years now. One was for the layer of resin on the inside of a pipe found in my backpack when I was searched outside of a youth center when I was 15 and the other was for, well, possession of nothing since I was able to chew and swallow a joint while being searched in the parking lot of a Grateful Dead concert a year later. Forensic tests of the baggie found no traces of marijuana (molecular level testing hadn’t been developed at that time), but I was found guilty anyway based on the police testimony that a ‘green leafy substance’ was seen in my mouth. So it goes. I’m glad that the cops didn’t knock my teeth out.

    Now in Nebraska and most of fly-over America, a third conviction of this horrible crime of green leafy substance would result in a mandatory-minimum sentence of a length that would be equal to what a person would receive for killing a policeman. Meaning I would have -nothing to lose- for killing any and all police officers who would attempt to arrest me for the old green leafy.

    This is why me and 10,000,000 other Americans like me (Americans have been arresting 400,000 – 800,000 a year for forty years on green-leafy charges, an arrest is a conviction in the idiot American drug war, and these numbers add up as the decades roll by) avoid having anything to do with fascist dung-holes like Nebraska and most of the rest of fly-over America. I live now in a state where the old green-leaf is legal, waxed and taxed, so you don’t have to worry about me blasting away any of your local stormtroopers.

    So this fool has a point, a small point. I hear what he’s saying and I understand why he’s saying it.

    But he’s still an idiot. Because if you’re living in a place where you’re being legally treated like an animal, then do what I did. Just leave! Move somewhere where you’ll be treated like a citizen if you don’t act like a criminal. Don’t lie to people to get yourself elected to an office that you don’t deserve and then trash talk the institutions that you’ve taken an oath to defend!

    Black politicians have become just insufferable. They float over their districts in their little plastic bubbles of bull, saying all sorts of nonsense, and never ever get called on it, no matter what crazy thing that they say. Enough, already!

      Marijuana is an odd duck, in my opinion. I have used it in the past–the last time was at least ten years ago. I don’t like it. The last time that I smoked it, with my brother, I had to go upstairs and climb under the sheets, because I was pretty sure that God didn’t like me smoking dope, and was coming for me to let me know, and I needed to hide from him. Pretty much cured me of ever wanting to try it again.

      However–I do agree that marijuana makes many users very passive. White users. White users smoke dope, fire up the playstation, and play games for hours on end, not hurting anyone. In my experience, white people sort of realize that they are intoxicated on weed, and don’t drive anywhere. They order pizza when they get the munchies.

      Negroes, on the other hand, don’t get “mellow” when they smoke dope. They get aggressive and violent–at least most of those that I have dealt with. They may as well be drinking rotgut whisky. Negroes get incredibly violent when they smoke dope.

      I don’t see an issue with making dope legal for whites. Me, I don’t care for it, so I would avoid it, but hell it doesn’t really harm whites. I have an issue, however, with making it legal for negroes. They can’t handle it, and they ought not be allowed its use. Just my opinion.

      • Alexandra1973

        I personally don’t care what someone drinks or smokes so long as they don’t harm anyone else. And as long as they realize the consequences.

        I’ve already been telling my teenaged son that booze (what he calls it–he’s mildly autistic) can really mess you up. So he goes around saying “Booze is bad!”

      • ElComadreja

        There isn’t a drug going that doesn’t make blacks aggressive and violent. They truly are a separate species.

    • Lexonaut

      “Ernie Chambers is an idiot.”

      Chill out, mofo. You da fool, not my man Ernie.

    • Belinda Boundreau

      Chambers is part of the invented negro political class installed into the invented gerrymandered districts to give the ‘amish tools’ a ‘voice’. Both have to go IMO.

    • Max

      “As an elected official you have a responsibility to represent your constituents…”
      Unfortunately, he *does* accurately represent them.

  • IstvanIN

    They have no souls, no morals and no intellect.

    Cry me a river! Another mentally challenged Black voicing the perpetual whine.

  • Chip Carver

    After seeing the picture accompanying the original article, all I can think of is an organ grinder going full tilt as pennies land in a tin cup.

    • Lexonaut

      The word whose image you’re conjuring is a Russian slang word for blacks. Russians detest them and are very dismissive of them.

  • Gladys P

    Negros love to talk. They just love it. They be bad. They be the baddest muh-fuhs around.

    Yet where do Jesse Jackson, Rev. Farrakhan and Obama live in Chicago? Hyde Park, a neighborhood that is extra safe because they have TWO white police departments patrolling: The Chicago PD and the University of Chicago PD. They live where the white folks can keep them safe from the bruthas.

    And Rev. Farrakhan has his own private police force that surrounds his house 24/7: the guardians of the Nation of Islam.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      Jesse Jackson lives in South Shore.

  • superlloyd

    Another ignorant, black, elected idiot shoots his mouth off. No doubt he can’t shoot straight and would be another ‘din du nuffins’ martyr if he tried this out in real life.

  • phillyguy

    shouldn’t he be forced to resign as a state senator making a stupid Negro comment like that?

    • John Smith

      Nah, they will appoint him “Special Secretary for Diversity.”

  • B.E.L.

    A white assistant prosecutor from Baltimore says to shoot looters, she is forced to resign. A black senator from Nebraska says he will shoot cops………….Nobody blinks.

    • John Smith


      • Lexonaut

        ??? Even my friend Google doesn’t know what that means.

    • Hank Richter

      I was gonna say the same thing, but to be fair, those lefty nuts get out there and scream and shout, whites just keep taking it, I try to get my family to see this stuff, they just say “meh”.

  • dd121

    Those people who are the self-appointed spokesmen for blacks are 100 times worse than what they accuse whites of doing. It’s accepted as normal. It’s sick.

    • Wing-nut.


    • Wing-nut.

      I believe they are inhumane.

  • Jason Lewis

    How did he get elected in Nebraska?

    • I surmise his district encompasses Omaha’s ratchet ghettos and bell curve city.

      I’m not making fun of this situation at all, because of two names: Jamilah Nasheed, and Maria Chappelle-Nadal, two people I bump into from time to time, but thankfully I don’t have to deal with on a professional basis.

    • John Smith

      Malcolm X was from Omaha and there are a surprising number of negroes there still.

      • Lexonaut

        “Malcolm X was from Omaha …”

        I didn’t know that. I’m a native NYCer and thought he was from there, or maybe Chicago.

        • ElComadreja

          I thought the SOB was from Roxbury here in Boston.

      • Max

        AND Omaha has the distinction of having the highest rate of black-on-black violence in America; due to white racism, of course.

  • I am surprised that a state senator would hold such views. I mean, a man that thinks like that, should be an attorney general, or even the president of the United States!

  • MekongDelta69

    Introduce this black loser to Tony Brown (above)…

  • Hilis Hatki

    Ernie “Loaded” Chambers ready to POPO the POPO.

  • IKUredux

    Blacks are idiots. You can talk about your “talented tenth” but that pretty much puts them equal with moderately over average Whites. Big deal! So what!

    I don’t hate Blacks. They do not belong in a country that is anything but populated by Blacks. They do not fit in. They even admit they don’t fit in. It’s nobody’s fault.

    There must be some way that the reparations they keep demanding from us can be connected to repatriation to Africa. Seems to me that this would be perfectly fair. Reparations=Repatriation. It should be a Common Core math problem.

    Buh Bye.

  • listenupbub

    The reason blacks are always terrified of the police might have to do with the fact that they are always doing something illegal. If you are wearing shoplifted clothes, driving without insurance, with drugs in your pockets and seats, you might be a little on edge around cops, too.

    • Lexonaut

      “The reason blacks are always terrified of the police might have to do
      with the fact that they are always doing something illegal.”

      Half the men will go to prison at some point in their lives. This is an astonishing statistic.

      Law-abiding Americans have little idea of how very, very difficult it is to make it to prison. Defendants are given every break, and even if convicted the sentences for the first few convictions are often suspended. For half of black males to end up in prison shows how extraordinarily criminal (and violent) they are.

  • listenupbub

    I am amazed that blacks can put together such elegant sentences (relatively), when their comprehension of written news and reality in general is so damned terrible. I mean, if they have such a hard time understanding simple events around them, how do they learn how to speak beyond a 10-year-old level?

  • A Freespeechzone

    Let this stupid, loudmouth fool just try to threaten LE; he will learn the result of lethal seld defense.

    One dead ass Nebraska state senator; justified by his attitude and actions.

    Nebraska & the world will be better off.

  • John Smith

    Then he’d fast become another negro statistic, at least for now.

  • Lexonaut

    “… why should we be expected to associate with [blacks]?”

    Because they’re a certified victim group. This means that we, not they, are the problem. Therefore we lose the right of free association. … Or something.

  • Basketeddie

    I expect that he will be forced to resign very soon. I also expect Ethiopia to send a man to Mars in the very near future.

    • Max

      Nope; that discussion has already occurred.
      Term limit will kick in again and he’ll have to sit out for at least one term though.

  • Light from the East

    If no one wants to be cops and laws cannot be executed, the only rule is power. For those with superior firepower and well-organized group, they will have the right to decide who to kill and who to survive. It becomes the society that everyone determines his/her own rule and carries it out with the power of weapons. It seems it is the society liberals want to create.

  • Irish

    Omaha is a pretty nice Midwestern Town. And generally safe by fairly large city standards. The north side of the city is black. Almost all the violent murders take place there. Drive by shootings etc..I lived there for a couple years a decade ago on the nearly uniformly White west side. Very safe, occasionally you see on the news that there had been a few homes burglarized in the area. The suspects invariably were traced to the north-eastern areas of the city.

    • Max

      Latinos now outnumber blacks significantly.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    Chambers’ big complaint is that local law enforcement interferes with his drug deals, drug use, and the half-dozen scams that any self-respecting nigro politician engages in on a daily basis…

  • Hammerheart

    A senator said this? I’ve heard more prescient statements from a 14 year old hooker addicted to meth.

  • panopticon1984

    Hopefully, following these remarks, there will be no incidents of monkey hear, monkey do.

  • slobotnavich

    This retarded buffoon is a state senator?!!

    • Max

      This is the same sideshow act who brought a lawsuit against God a couple years ago. Outrage is his stock-in-trade.

  • Jack Frost

    Like this idiot survived the hood without being strapped…but he could have talked the others denizens to death as an option.
