Hoodies in church: In Sunday sermons about Trayvon Martin, calls for justice from the pulpit

(http://l.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/DSy1BXDfNIFM7g2JP4v58Q--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7cT04NTt3PTYzMA--/http://media.zenfs.com/en/blogs/thelookout/hoodies-church-ap-lg.jpg)

In their Sunday sermons, pastors and church leaders across the country mourned the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed 17-year-old African-American who was killed in Sanford, Fla., last month. Some wore hoodies in Martin's honor. Many church-goers did the same.

In Atlanta, dozens wore hoodies in Martin's memory at the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King Jr. once preached.

"They said his name was Trayvon Martin," a hoodie-clad Rev. Raphael Warnock said. "But he looked like Emmett Till," a reference to the 1955 case of a 14-year-old boy who was lynched for allegedly whistling at a white woman. "At least with Emmett Till someone was arrested. And that was in 1955."

Many others called for justice in the case--and for George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch captain who shot Martin, to be arrested.

Rev. Jesse Jackson called Martin a "martyr," and led the congregation at the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Eatonville, Fla., in a chant: "Stop the violence. Save the children."

This whole story really bothers me. No one, and that includes everyone in the media and especially Al the conman Sharpton, has no idea of what happened here. The truth is slowly being leaked out, and it looks like this Trayvon Martin just might be cupable in what happened.

Quote
Rev. Jesse Jackson

When you see these shakedown artists show up and rant, than you know the truth isnt out there. Him and his shakedown buddy Sharpton already have blood on their hands and they are stirring up the racism pot to keep their own coffers full. These are 2 of the most racist people on the planet for using their own race to make money. Wake up people.

Former NAACP leader accuses Sharpton and Jackson of ‘exploiting’ Trayvon Martin

about time  :)

Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially divide this country.”

“His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller.

The conservative black pastor who was once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP called Jackson and Sharpton “race hustlers” and said they are “acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.”

Jackson, for example, recently said Martin’s death shows how “blacks are under attack” and “targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business.”  (SEE ALSO: Jesse Jackson says Trayvon Martin ‘murdered and martyred’)

George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, killed Martin, a 17-year-old black man who was unarmed at the time of his death, last month. Zimmerman has claimed to have shot Martin in self-defense and has not been charged with a crime.

But Bryant, who explores the topic of black-on-black crime in his new film “Runaway Slave,” said people like Jackson and Sharpton are being misleading to suggest there is an epidemic of “white men killing black young men.”

“The epidemic is truly black on black crime,” Bryant said. “The greatest danger to the lives of young black men are young black men.”

Mother Seeks Trayvon Martin TrademarksRecords: Late teenager's kin filed pair of applications last week

WOW!! guess its only "racism" when your cashin in on your boys "murder" Yep you can AL and Jesse's influence...

The mother of Trayvon Martin has filed two applications to secure trademarks containing her late son’s name, records show.

Sabrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.

The March 21 USPTO applications, each of which cost $325, were filed by an Orlando, Florida law firm representing Fulton.

The Politics of Tragedy

For Obama and the liberal media, Trayvon Martin is a character in an election-year narrative.

President Obama declared in a press conference Friday that Trayvon Martin, the 17-year old African-American student fatally shot by Florida neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February, looks like his own hypothetical son. "If I had a son," Obama declared, "he would look like Trayvon." The racial implication of the president's statement was clear. The man who gained national prominence with a 2004 Democratic Convention speech calling for cultural unity stood in the Rose Garden of the White House and furthered the racial tension surrounding Martin's shooting. In a politicized national debate in which the Washington Post accused Zimmerman of "murder" and mainstream media writers call for the man's arrest, President Obama opined on an issue on which he -- like everyone else -- is not fully informed.

"Every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and everybody pulls together, federal state and local, to figure out exactly how this tragedy happened" Obama said. According to the Los Angeles Times, Obama spoke to the Rev. Al Sharpton on the phone Thursday, and aides believed that they discussed the shooting.

Not to be outdone, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney went a step further. "What happened to Trayvon Martin is a tragedy," Romney said. "There needs to be a thorough investigation that reassures the public that justice is carried out with impartiality and integrity." According to our potential future president, "reassuring the public" must factor into a criminal investigation.

Unfortunately for all parties involved, the public has heard nothing but the media's politicized commentary, wrapped into a narrative written before the facts of the case were fully disclosed. It's a narrative that exploits Martin's death from all angles. Some media commentators want to use the shooting to help repeal the "Stand Your Ground" self-defense laws enacted in states across the country primarily by Republican lawmakers. Others, like well-funded professional activists Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, stand to gain from pushing the idea that police officers are uniformly racist and that shootings of African-American men are implicitly condoned.

Woops... Looks like all these shake down artists have some apologizing to do.  ::)

Registered Dem Killed Trayvon
Meet registered Democrat and self-identified Hispanic American, George Zimmerman


The individual at the center of the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting is a registered Democrat.

George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.

It is unclear whether he voted for President Barack Obama in 2008.

Some in the media have sought to blame Republican politicians and conservative activists for Martin’s death.

“[Republican politicians] reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African-Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance. In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences,” said MSNBC political analyst and Democratic fundraiser Karen Finney.

According to the document, Zimmerman’s race is officially listed as Hispanic. The son of a white father and Peruvian mother, he has been described as a “white Hispanic” in most media reports.

Following the Feb. 26 fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a Sanford, Fla. gated community, Zimmerman has been the target of widespread outrage.

Zimmerman shot and killed Martin following a physical confrontation, but has yet to be charged with a crime. He says he acted in self-defense, a claim supported by the Sanford, Fla., Police Department investigating the case.

Protesters and activists led by professional racial justice advocates Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have suggested Martin’s killing was racially motivated, and have called for Zimmerman’s arrest.

“We want George Zimmerman in court with handcuffs behind his back,” Sharpton said last week.

Martin’s mother, Sabrina Fulton, has alleged that Zimmerman killed her son “because of the color of his skin.”

Craig Sonner, the attorney representing Zimmerman, has denied such allegations, noting that his client has acted as a mentor to a black single mother and her two children, and had helped them raise money for their all-black church.

For Zimmerman’s safety, the Free Beacon has redacted his address from the registration document. The New Black Panther Party has offered a $10,000 bounty for Zimmerman’s capture.

Spike Lee tweeted incorrect George Zimmerman address, possibly putting Sanford woman in danger

Why isnt this guy being arrested? He could and possibly still can get this lady killed.

Filmmaker Spike Lee tweeted the wrong home address for George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Fla., man who many are claiming should be arrested for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin. The tweet could have potentially put the woman who actually lives at that address in danger.

The Washington Times’ Kerry Picket went to the address that Lee tweeted as members of the New Black Panther Party were offering a $10,000 cash reward for Zimmerman’s capture, “dead or alive,” and others were demanding his arrest.

“[T]he Edgewater Circle address Mr. Lee re-tweeted out is not part of the gated Retreat at Twin Lakes where the shooting took place and where Mr. Zimmerman lives,” Picket reported. “The area is not even a gated a community.”

“In fact, I took a drive to that Edgewater Circle address that so many on Twitter re-tweeted and cursed, and I discovered through a neighbor, named Tim, who lives across the street from the address, that not only does George Zimmerman not live at the lakeside house but a woman by the name of Elaine does,” Picket added.

Picket also said several news agencies have showed up at the address looking for Zimmerman, which – with the crowds the Panthers, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have whipped up into a frenzy – may have put the woman, Elaine, in danger.

It’s unclear specifically which news agencies trekked to the address Lee tweeted and why they failed to report Lee’s inaccuracy.

This report follows new revelations in the Martin case, including Zimmerman’s self-described membership in the Democratic Party, freshly surfaced tweets from Martin’s Twitter account, and Martin’s various suspensions from school.

Al Sharpton: Civil disobedience will escalate if Zimmerman remains free

If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, theRev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions.

Sharpton would not say the efforts would be taken against the city of Sanford specifically, but he has been critical of the police department's handling of the case.


Saturday's scheduled 11 a.m. march from Crooms Academy of Information Technology to the Sanford Police Department headquarters was organized by National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Coordinators said people will be bused in from other states to participate.

The civil rights activist and syndicated television show host said he will elaborate on this plan Saturday.

"I will speak about how the National Action Network will move to the next level if Zimmerman isn't arrested," Sharpton said, who founded the organization. He added that it was the Martin family and lawyers who first asked him to get involved and nationalize this story.

TheRev. Jesse Jacksonis also expected to participate in the event.

The case has ignited ire and debate across the nation, galvanizing thousands of Trayvon supporters to the streets and social media, donning hoodies and toting Skittles.

Civil rights leaders condemn Sharpton's call for escalated civil disobedience

Rally Saturday in Sanford hosted by NAACP


The Rev. Al Sharpton said Friday his National Action Network will "move to the next level" if George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Sharpton called for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions, although he did not say what those sanctions might be.

Turner Clayton, the Seminole County chapter president of the NAACP, reacted immediately to Sharpton's warning, saying, "We hope that the citizens of Sanford will govern themselves accordingly. We are not calling for any sanctions, against any business or anyone else. And, of course, what Rev. Sharpton does, that's strictly the [National] Action Network.  We can't condone that part of the conversation, if that's what he said."

Title: Rick Warren sides with Trayvon Martin?

http://news.yahoo.com/rick-warren-ministering-trayvon-martin-community-130901641--abc-news-politics.html

Excerpt:

Rick Warren on Ministering to Trayvon Martin Community

ABC News

 The Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, Fla. has gripped the nation in recent weeks, with many questions still unanswered about the controversial shooting death of the unarmed 17-year-old by neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman. I asked Pastor Rick Warren how he would minister to the community there.
 
TAPPER: If you were the pastor in Sanford, Fla., how would you minister to the people in that community, where there is so much pain? What needs to be addressed in that community?
 
WARREN: Well, first place, let me say, I don't know the specifics of that story, so I can't comment on it. In fact, I was in Africa when it happened, and I was there for 10 days. And so I'm behind the ball on that. But I will say this. I think one of the most prevalent sins around the world is racism. I have seen prejudice literally all around the world, not just between races, between gender, between political parties, prejudice between economic societies.
 
WARREN: This conflict that happens all around the world, and the reason why is, we're not at peace with God. When we're not at peace with God, then we're not at peace with each other. That's why Jesus said, "Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself." "Get right with God, get right with others." "'Be reconciled to God, be reconciled with each other.' That's the first letter of the PEACE Plan to promote reconciliation.
 
WARREN: And so what I would be doing as a pastor would be promoting reconciliation in this issue. Martin Luther King was brilliant in that he knew we do not overcome evil with more evil. Violence only begets violence. Leaders absorb the pain. And you overcome evil with good. I would be promoting reconciliation between all of the parties there, and at the same time I would still be working for racial equality.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, scripture says NOTHING about "being reconciled with each other".

Rom 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed
.

Eph 4:1  I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
Eph 4:2  With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
Eph 4:3  Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Eph 4:4  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
Eph 4:5  One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
Eph 4:6  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Eph 4:7  But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
Eph 4:8  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
Eph 4:9  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
Eph 4:10  He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
Eph 4:11  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Eph 4:15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Eph 4:16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Eph 4:17  This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
Eph 4:18  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Eph 4:19  Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
Eph 4:20  But ye have not so learned Christ;
Eph 4:21  If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
Eph 4:22  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
Eph 4:23  And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
Eph 4:24  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Eph 4:25  Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another

OK, this article may be slightly off-topic, however, it seems like the agenda in this article is using the Trayvon Martin ordeal to try to paint the Southern Baptist Convention in a good light by saying how "racial diversity" they have become by likely electing Fred Luter as their 1st SBC President. FYI, I posted this in another thread in another forum here, but just to sum it up, Luter is a member of his city's INTERFAITH group. This is DEFINITELY NOT good for ANYONE to appoint an Apostate to a position like this. If the blind follow the blind, both shall fall into the ditch...

Editorial: Fred Luter, Trayvon Martin and the Gospel

Apr 4, 2012
By JAMES A. SMITH SR.

Southern Baptists may make history in June—and the Gospel will be served immeasurably if they do.
 
Perhaps it will not be as societally transformative as when Jackie Robinson first took to the baseball diamond for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.
 
None would argue it would eclipse the importance in American history as when Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States on Jan. 20, 2009.
 
But the likely election of Fred Luter as the first African American president of the Southern Baptist Convention in New Orleans this summer will indeed be history making, impacting American society far beyond the confines of the Southern Baptist life.
 
And, while few Southern Baptists would underestimate the cultural significance of Luter’s election (which, it should be noted, is not a fait accompli), the long overdue election of a black man to lead Southern Baptists could be incalculably meaningful for the advancement of the Gospel in our rapidly increasing ethnically diverse nation.
 
That this may be so can be seen in the Florida—indeed, nationwide—controversy and racial unrest that has arisen in recent weeks after the killing of Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
 
Until all the facts are known, it’s too soon to draw conclusions about guilt over the tragic incident that resulted in Martin’s Feb. 26 death at the hands of neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, who remains in hiding (as of April 2). Indeed, far too many assumptions have been made, intensifying racial tensions, especially due to some incredibly irresponsible actions by certain national figures and celebrities.
 
Still, while the investigation continues and we pray for justice to be done, Trayvon Martin’s death and the controversy about it is a reminder of how difficult the race issue is for our society—and why only the Gospel can bridge the racial and ethnic divide that mars humanity (Eph. 2:11-22). ??? ???

Eph 2:11  Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Eph 2:12  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Eph 2:13  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14  For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Eph 2:15  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Eph 2:16  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:17  And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
Eph 2:18  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 2:19  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Eph 2:20  And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.  

In a Baptist Press article about Martin, Southern Baptist African American leaders Maxie Miller and Kevin Smith speak passionately about the challenges still facing blacks in our society.
 
“As a black man, I am a suspect, not because of what I do or because of what I’ve done, but basically because of who I am, being black. I’m perceived a suspect just by being black,” said Miller, African American church planting team strategist for the Florida Baptist Convention.
 
Smith, a Kentucky pastor and professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, said when he travels to preach at rural churches, he is mindful that his skin color sometimes matters. Often, he’ll enlist men from the churches to accompany him.
 
“I laugh about taking guys with me, but there’s also a serious side to that—not regarding the Southern Baptist churches where I’m preaching, but regarding everything I must do to get there—the gas stations where I’m stopping, and the restaurants where I’m stopping, and all those kinds of things,” Smith told BP.
 
While I can empathize with my brothers Miller and Smith, as a white man I will never truly understand the challenges they face. Needless to say, Fred Luter does—and it’s one of many reasons why it’s long past time for an African American to lead Southern Baptists.
 
To be sure, Luter is not qualified to be president of the Southern Baptist Convention because of the pigment of his skin. Southern Baptists have consistently rejected the notion of racial quotas. Many believe, as I do, in Martin Luther King’s “dream” of a color-blind society where persons “will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
 
Luter’s accomplishments as a leading Southern Baptist expositor of God’s Word is widely known. For years, he has been a favorite preacher for many Southern Baptist Pastors’ Conference meetings and other national and state denominational meetings. Luter’s pastoral leadership of the geographically dispersed membership of Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans in the wake of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina was nothing less than heroic. And, he has modeled increasing cooperation through missions giving by his congregation.
 
Clearly, Luter is a model minister greatly used of God who is ready to lead Southern Baptists. FYI, read the TIME magazine interview he did last year, he did NOT mention the name of Jesus Christ even once! --> http://endtimesandcurrentevents.freesmfhosting.com/index.php/topic,6030.0.html
 
I need to note, however, I’m not establishing a new precedent of endorsing SBC presidential candidates. That’s a role more properly suited to others.
 
Instead, I am repeating a conviction previously expressed (as recently as a March 9, 2011, editorial, “Toward an ethnically diverse SBC leadership”) that Southern Baptists need to make a conscious, yet non-quota-based effort to recognize African Americans and other ethnic and racial minority leaders as leaders.
 
Luter’s possible election has already received considerable attention from secular media across the nation—indeed, around the world. Each news account notes the historical significance of his prospective election, with many tying the development back to the 1995 apology for slavery adopted on the SBC’s 150th anniversary.
 
I don’t think it’s overstating the matter to say that the advancement of the Gospel is impeded the longer Southern Baptists go without involving African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities in significant leadership positions—preeminently, the SBC presidency.
 
In the meantime, Southern Baptist African Americans can help teach us all how to address the racial concerns of blacks. Kevin Smith’s winsome, Gospel-focused attitude is one that all Southern Baptists from all racial and ethnic backgrounds should emulate.
 
In his comments to BP, Smith pointed to the “common heritage in the Gospel of Jesus Christ” shared by Southern Baptists from all backgrounds.
 
“That is our bottom line, and it ought to give us more urgency for sharing the Gospel because public policy and social engineering cannot fix the sinfulness of humanity,” Smith added.
 
Because of that urgency, Southern Baptists should be willing to take steps to remove barriers that may impede Gospel advancement.
 
Some day, likely only too soon, another racial controversy will engulf our nation. It’s long past time that the Southern Baptist “face” addressing such a controversy is one that looks familiar to those who feel their concerns are taken less than seriously by the broader culture. When that happens, the Gospel will have a greater opportunity for advancement and God will be glorified.

George Zimmerman Sues NBC Over Edited 911 Tape

In March, NewsBusters broke the story about NBC's Today show airing an edited audiotape of George Zimmerman's 911 call the day he shot Trayvon Martin in Florida.

On Thursday, the New York Post reported Zimmerman is suing the Peacock Network.

According to the Post, the complaint will be filed against NBC News President Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen who was the Today reporter involved in the March 27 broadcast.

A source told the Post, “The suit will be filed imminently against NBC and its news executives. The network’s legal department has put everybody in the news department involved with this incident on notice, telling them not to comment.”

As NewsBusters noted at the time, Today played an audiotape with Zimmerman saying on a 911 call, "This guy looks like he’s up to no good...he looks black."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But this was the fuller text of the call:

ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining, and he's just walking around, looking about.

911 DISPATCHER: Okay, is this guy, is he white, black, or Hispanic?

ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.

NBC deceptively removed the question from the 911 dispatcher to make it appear Zimmerman was racist, a mistake the network ended up apologizing for.

That was no mistake. It was intentional, not only for the sake of the story, but because their bosses told them to, in order to project a certain mentality on the topic, and I suspect they got their orders from Washington.

Same kind of deal with the Atlanta Olympics and the security guard they drug through hell and back, only in the end for the government to say, "Oops our bad! Wrong guy." It was all planned and staged to get America to think a certain way. It's social manipulation, and it's outright evil.

State's main witness in George Zimmerman murder case lied

Just about everybody in this whole case has lied, from the President all the down...

Trayvon Martin's girlfriend, the state's most important witness in the George Zimmerman murder case, was caught in a lie, it was revealed Tuesday.

It was not the first piece of misinformation tied to her, but it was the most damaging to date and left prosecutors in a very awkward position.

They had to publicly acknowledge that their star witness had lied under oath and had to answer questions about what they intend to do about it.

Reporters asked: Will you charge the 19-year-old Miami woman with perjury?

The state's lead prosecutor, Bernie de la Rionda, gave an ambiguous answer: "You can all read the law and make your own decision."

The woman had told prosecutors she was in the hospital on the day of Trayvon's funeral.

"In fact, she lied," defense attorney Don West said.

The disclosure was one of two major developments Tuesday at what had been expected to be a dull hearing about the exchange of case evidence.

The other: Zimmerman's lawyers will not hold a "stand your ground" hearing in April, one that could clear him of criminal wrongdoing before his trial.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara made that announcement in court, later saying he had not yet decided whether to scrap it entirely or roll it into Zimmerman's second-degree-murder trial set for June 10.

"Our real focus is getting ready for the trial," O'Mara said.

What Zimmerman most wants is to be tried by a jury of his peers, O'Mara said, and with fewer than 100 days until trial, "There's only time for one hearing, and that's a jury trial. … We have precious little time."

Zimmerman was not at Tuesday's hearing. Neither was his wife, Shellie, who's awaiting trial on a perjury charge, accused of lying at her husband's April 20 bond hearing. That's what prompted the perjury question to de la Rionda.

If defense lawyers decide to forgo George Zimmerman's immunity hearing, they would be cutting in half their number of opportunities to spare him from a life in prison.

Florida's "stand your ground" statute has generated a great deal of public debate since Trayvon's death one year ago in Sanford. It provides immunity to anyone who uses deadly force, provided he has a reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily injury.

Zimmerman says he shot Trayvon in self-defense.

Because of Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson's very tight schedule, when O'Mara told her he would not put on a two-week "stand your ground" hearing starting April 22, he essentially told her he would not hold that hearing before Zimmerman's trial.

She did not press him to spell out his plans.

De la Rionda said he was "bewildered" by O'Mara's decision but did not elaborate.

Zimmerman, a 29-year-old former Neighborhood Watch volunteer, called Sanford police Feb. 26, 2012, describing Trayvon as suspicious. Zimmerman shot the unarmed high-school junior a few minutes later, saying he fired in self-defense after the Miami Gardens 17-year-old punched him, broke his nose, then began pounding his head onto a sidewalk.

Sanford police found no witnesses to the initial confrontation, but Trayvon's family attorney, Benjamin Crump, found something close: Trayvon's girlfriend, identified in court records as "witness 8." She told Crump she had been on the phone with Trayvon just before the shooting.

According to an interview Crump recorded after the shooting, the young woman said Trayvon told her a stranger was following him, and he was scared. Trayvon got away from him once, but the man reappeared, she said, and she heard Trayvon ask, "'What are you following me for?'"

The man answered, "'What are you doing here?'" she said, and then she said the man must have pushed Trayvon because the phone went dead.

The woman gave de la Rionda a very similar account during a sworn statement April 2, and when his office wrote up its probable-cause affidavit, charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder, it rehashed her account but did not include her allegation that she heard Zimmerman push Trayvon.

Despite's Tuesday's revelation, there is no indication the woman lied about what she heard on the phone the evening Trayvon was shot. But she appears to have given Crump another piece of bad information: her age.

He told reporters in March, when he played excerpts from the recorded interview, that she was 16 years old. In fact, she was 18 at the time. Crump has said he did not knowingly misrepresent her age.

O'Mara would not say whether the woman should be prosecuted for perjury for lying under oath about being in the hospital.

But months ago, he and co-counsel Don West began trying to investigate her. They earlier persuaded the judge to allow them to subpoena her Twitter and Facebook accounts so they can read her posts.

It's amazing how rotten this "justice" system is - for one, we were taught how this system is set up where for every 10 people that get tried for crimes, 9 guilty people walk free...meaning rarely do the innocent get falsely convicted.

Not from what we've seen, especially recently - Casey Anthony is one example(no evidence against her, physical or otherwise), but they had to put her through all that ordeal(and ended up making books and movies over her). And while I'm not defending Drew Peterson, he ended up getting convicted largely b/c of "heresy" evidence that was unlawful for many, many years(and subsequently national media attention, books, and movies were made over this).

Sometimes I wonder what all of the true agendas are behind this(other than the love of money)...

All-women jury chosen for George Zimmerman's trial
6/20/13

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A jury of six women, five of them white, was picked Thursday to decide the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who says he fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, in self-defense.

Prosecutors have said Zimmerman, 29, racially profiled the 17-year-old Martin as he walked back from a convenience store on a rainy night in February 2012 wearing a dark hooded shirt.

The race and ethnicity of the sixth juror was not immediately available. Zimmerman identifies himself as Hispanic.

Two of the jurors recently moved to the area — one from Iowa and one from Chicago — and two are involved with rescuing animals as their hobbies.

One juror had a prior arrest, but she said it was disposed of and she thought she was treated fairly. Two jurors have guns in their homes. All of their names have been kept confidential and the panel will be sequestered for the trial.

Opening statements are scheduled for Monday.

The central Florida community of Sanford is in Seminole County, which is 78.5 percent white and 16.5 percent black, roughly mirroring the jury's racial makeup.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys chose the panel of six jurors after almost two weeks of jury selection. In Florida, 12 jurors are required only for criminal trials involving capital cases, when the death penalty is being considered.

If convicted, Zimmerman could face a potential life sentence.

On Feb. 26, 2012, Zimmerman spotted Martin, whom he did not recognize, walking in the gated townhome community where Zimmerman lived and the fiancee of Martin's father also resided. There had been a rash of recent break-ins at the Retreat, and Zimmerman was wary of strangers walking through the complex.

The two eventually got into a struggle and Zimmerman shot Martin in the chest with his 9mm handgun. He was charged 44 days after the shooting, only after a special prosecutor was appointed to review the case.

Martin's shooting death and the initial decision not to charge Zimmerman led to public outrage and demonstrations around the nation, with some accusing Sanford police of failing to thoroughly investigate the shooting.

The six jurors were culled from a pool of 40 candidates who made it into a second round of jury questioning. Two men and two women also were picked as alternate jurors.

Before selecting the jurors Thursday, defense attorney Mark O'Mara explored potential jurors' views on guns, self-defense and justifiable use of force.

Under Florida law, Zimmerman could shoot Martin in self-defense if it was necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. O'Mara previously decided not to invoke a "stand your ground" hearing in which a judge alone would decide whether to dismiss the case or allow it to proceed to trial.

After the jury was picked, Judge Debra Nelson continued a hearing on whether to allow experts to testify about screams heard on 911 calls made during the struggle. Prosecutors want their expert to testify it was Martin screaming on the calls. An expert for Zimmerman's defense has said there is not enough audio to determine who the screams are coming from.

George Zimmerman's Family Ordered to Leave Courtroom at Start of Trial

The racially charged trial of George Zimmerman for the killing of teenager Trayvon Martin began in a Florida courtroom today with an emotional statement by Martin's mother and the judge sending Zimmerman's family out of the courtroom.

The case that renewed America's long, bitter and polarizing debate about race and guns opened today in Sanford, Fla., 16 months after Martin was shot dead by Zimmerman.

The drama began before opening statements could be introduced. On her way into court, Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, gave a statement.

"I'm here today as Trayvon Martin's mom as I have been every day. I will be attending every day to get justice for my son," Fulton said moments before she and Martin's father entered the court. "I ask that you pray for me and my family because I don't want any other mother to have to experience what I am going through now."

Before prosecutors began with their opening statements, a lawyer for the family, Benjamin Crump, summed up the arguments prosecutors may make.

"We think this is a simple case. There are two important facts. Number one, George Zimmerman was a grown man with a gun. And number two, Trayvon Martin was a minor who had no blood on his hands." Crump said.

Once inside the courtroom, the families of Martin and Zimmerman settled into seats, but Judge Debra Nelson ordered Zimmerman's family to leave the room since they are on a list of possible witnesses who might be called.

Martin's parents were allowed to stay and watch the proceedings.

According to Florida law, a victim's family can stay inside a courtroom and watch the proceedings. However, no such rule covers family rights for the accused.

Crump was also kicked out of court.

Prosecutors will begin opening statements in the second-degree murder trial against Zimmerman by trying to paint the former neighborhood watch captain as a "wannabe cop" who over-stepped his role in the community. They will argue that he profiled, followed and, ultimately, killed a 17-year-old high school student who was innocently walking to his father's girlfriend's home after leaving a convenience store.

George Zimmerman Judge Denies Use of State Audio Experts' Testimony

Zimmerman's team might counter by highlighting the medical reports, photographs and relatively "consistent" statements he made to police immediately after the shooting that Martin aggressively confronted him and banged his head on the sidewalk several times and that the two struggled over Zimmerman's gun until he pulled the trigger. They will assert he killed the teen while trying to defend his own life.

"To prove second-degree murder, prosecutors must prove that Zimmerman was filled with ill-will, hatred or spite," said criminal defense attorney Mark Eiglarsh, who has no connection to the case. "Jurors can consider a lesser charge of manslaughter if they think what Zimmerman did was unlawful but didn't contain those necessary elements."

For the next two to four weeks, the jury might hear from neighbors who saw or heard some kinds of struggle between both men Feb. 26, 2012, and called 911 from help. But none of the potential witnesses saw who initiated the altercation, nor intervened even when one of the two men cried out for help. Significant Numbers in George Zimmerman case

Who was howling for help in those 911 tapes might become one of the most important questions to be weighed by the jury of six woman. They will have to decide for themselves after Circuit Judge Debra Nelson banned the testimony of two audio experts who said they could hear Martin begging for his life on those tapes.

Full Coverage of the George Zimmerman Trial

After opening statements, the state is expected to begin calling witnesses to the stand. Among those who might eventually testify is a young woman known as W8 who was on the phone with Martin five minutes before he was shot and said the teen was unnerved by and afraid of Zimmerman.

A jury might also eventually watch a re-enactment video filmed by police of a bandaged Zimmerman in the days after the shooting recounting his story to skeptical investigators. Zimmerman gave several video and audio statements to police in the days after the shooting, and his legal team says that might be the reason he never takes the stand in this case.

"At a minimum, what's at stake is a potential life sentence for [Zimmerman], who believes, as do his supporters, that he was the victim, and not Trayvon," Eiglarsh, the attorney, said. "But because of the long history of racial tension in Sanford, Florida, there are many people who believe that the only verdict that speaks the truth, the only justice, is guilty."

Trayvon Martin Drug Photos Can't Be Mentioned, Judge Says

The case has gripped and divided the central Florida community of Sanford from the beginning. The Seminole County courthouse instituted a lottery for the public interested in watching the case, and set up protest areas for those looking to vocalize their opinion. But only a handful of protesters showed up during the nine-day jury selection.

The six jurors and four alternates who will hear opening statements are now isolated, away from their homes, with minimal contact with family and friends until the trial ends.Timeline of George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin Case

Both sides say sequestration will help eliminate juror exposure to outside influence as this controversial case kicks off. It's one of the few areas of agreement between all sides.

This is such a railroad. I mean ALL of the presecution whitnesses are backing up the DEFENCE!!!! Why isnt this thrown out yet!!!

Judge strikes detective statements on Zimmerman

It was the prosecutors own whitness!!!!  :D

A prosecutor in George Zimmerman's murder trial on Tuesday tried to pick apart the statements of a Sanford Police detective who had been called as a prosecution witness a day before but gave testimony that seemed to benefit the defense.

Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda began by asking the judge to strike from the record a statement Detective Chris Serino made Monday in which he said he found credible Zimmerman's account of how he got into a fight with Trayvon Martin. De la Rionda argued the statement was improper because one witness isn't allowed to give an opinion on the credibility of another witness. Defense attorney Mark O'Mara argued it was proper because Serino was vetting Zimmerman's veracity in his probe.

Judge Debra Nelson told jurors to disregard the statement.

"This is an improper comment," the judge said.

De la Rionda then questioned Serino about his opinion given Monday that he didn't believe Zimmerman displayed any ill will or spite to Martin. Prosecutors must prove there was ill will, spite or a depraved mind by the defendant to get a second-degree murder conviction.

Sanford, Fla., police officer Chris Serino identifies George Zimmerman in the courtroom during the 1 …

De la Rionda played back a police call Zimmerman had made to report Martin in the neighborhood: Zimmerman uses an expletive and "punks" and then says, "These a-------. They always get away." The prosecutor asked the investigator if those words showed some spite, and Serino said "a little."

Next, de la Rionda challenged Serino's contention that he found Zimmerman's story without major inconsistencies. The prosecutor played back Zimmerman's police interview in which investigators question Zimmerman about small differences in the neighborhood volunteer's story. The prosecutor also pointed out Zimmerman claimed that after he shot Martin, he spread out the teen's arms. But a photo taken immediately after the shooting shows Martin's arms under his body.

"Is that inconsistent with the defendant's statement he spread the arms out?" de la Rionda asked.

"That position, yes it is," Serino said.

It was Serino's second day on the witness stand. He and another investigator, Doris Singleton, testified Monday about their investigation as jurors heard a series of police interviews in which the detectives grew more pointed in their questioning.


In an early interview, just hours after the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting, Singleton recounted that Zimmerman noticed a cross she was wearing and said: "In Catholic religion, it's always wrong to kill someone."

Singleton said she responded, "If what you're telling me is true, I don't think that what God meant was that you couldn't save your own life."

But in an interview days later, Singleton and Serino suggest that Zimmerman was running after Martin before the confrontation. They also ask Zimmerman why he didn't explain to Martin why he was following him. The officers insinuate that Martin may have been "creeped out" by being followed.

"Do you think he was scared?" Singleton asked Zimmerman in one video interview.

Under cross-examination, though, Serino said Zimmerman seemed straightforward in his answers and didn't show any anger when talking about Martin. Serino said the increasingly pointed questioning is a tactic known as a "challenge interview," where detectives try to break someone's story to make sure they're telling the truth.


Zimmerman has said he fatally shot the unarmed black teen in self-defense in February, 2012, because he says Martin was banging his head into a concrete sidewalk behind townhomes in a gated community. Zimmerman, 29, could get life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder.

The state argued during its opening statement that Zimmerman profiled and followed Martin in his truck and called a police dispatch number before he and the teenager got into a fight. Zimmerman has denied the confrontation had anything to do with race, as Martin's family and their supporters have claimed. A 44-day delay in Zimmerman's arrest led to protests around the nation; he was ultimately charged by a Florida special prosecutor. Zimmerman's father is white and his mother is Hispanic.

In his first interview at the police station, Zimmerman said he saw Martin walking through his neighborhood on a dark, rainy night while Zimmerman was driving to the grocery store. He told Singleton that he didn't recognize Martin and that there had been recent break-ins at his townhome complex.

Zimmerman told the police officer that he lost track of Martin and got out of his truck to look for a street name he could relay to a police dispatcher. When the dispatcher suggested Zimmerman didn't need to follow Martin, Zimmerman started to head back to his vehicle. At that point, Zimmerman alleged, Martin jumped out of some bushes, punched him and he fell to the ground.

Zimmerman said Martin began hitting his head against the sidewalk as Zimmerman yelled for help and that Martin told him, "You're going to die tonight."

With Zimmerman's shirt and jacket pushed up during the struggle and his holstered gun now visible, he thought Martin was reaching for his firearm holstered around his waist. Zimmerman told the officer that he shot Martin and the teen said, "You got me."

FYI, the judge in this case(Debra Nelson) is a Jeb Bush appointee.

http://judgepedia.org/index.php/Debra_Steinberg_Nelson
Quote
Debra Steinberg Nelson is a Seminole County judge of the 18th Judicial Circuit Court in Florida. She was appointed by then-Governor Jeb Bush in May of 1999 (effective in June). Her current term expires in January of 2019.

She ended up replacing the previous judge over this case(Kenneth Lester) after Zimmerman's defense requested so.

Yes, I agree Zimmerman's defense did the right thing getting Lester removed(as explained in this link), but nonetheless pretty much a judge more reprobate replaced him.

Zimmerman Lawyers Were Once Supporters Of Judge Who Has Knocked Them About Florida Courtroom
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/trayvon-martin/judge-debra-nelson-873407

Years before they would endure a televised pummeling in the Florida courtroom of Judge Debra Nelson, the two lawyers representing accused murderer George Zimmerman actually donated money to the prickly jurist’s first election campaign, records show.

In 1999, Republican Governor Jeb Bush appointed Nelson, a lifelong Democrat, to fill a vacancy in the 18th Judicial Circuit (covering Seminole and Brevard counties). When Nelson ran the following year for a full six-year term, she donated 85 percent of her campaign’s $151,000 war chest.

The balance of Nelson’s contributions came that year from scores of Florida attorneys and law firms. Division of Elections records show that the judicial candidate’s financial supporters included Zimmerman lawyers Mark O’Mara and Don West, both of whom have felt the 59-year-old Nelson’s wrath over the past several weeks.

O’Mara gave $250 to Nelson’s campaign, while West--who has tangled frequently with the jurist as he has defended Zimmerman against charges that the neighborhood watch volunteer murdered Trayvon Martin--donated $100.

It is apparently too late, however, for either man to seek a refund from Nelson, who won the 2000 election with 72 percent of the vote.

Pictured above bookended by O'Mara and West, Nelson ran unopposed for reelection in 2006 and 2012. While registered to vote as a Democrat from her Sanford home--which is about three miles from where Martin was shot to death--Nelson has appeared on the ballot with no specific party affiliation.

Nelson sought no contributions in her last two races, though she did loan her 2012 campaign $50,000 last January. But after paying a $5687.12 qualifying fee and an $18 bank charge, Nelson repaid herself $44,294.88 on May 1. It is unclear why she loaned so much money to her campaign, only to have it returned three months later.

Nelson, who was admitted to the Florida bar in 1979, earns around $142,000 as a Circuit Court judge (likely far less than what she would make in private practice). In a financial disclosure form filed last year with Florida’s Department of State, Nelson--seen above in her official court portrait--reported that her net worth was nearly $574,000.

While Nelson is, for the moment, the country’s most famous judge, her celebrity will eventually wane and she will return to the kind of mundane docket that makes courthouses everywhere hum. Which likely will not upset a public servant who, when she first ran with O’Mara’s and West’s support, declared, “I think I have a lot to offer the community. I love the law. I am fair and just and an impartial person."

Sharpton: 'Slap in the Face to Those Who Believe in Justice in This Country'

"Well, I think that this is an atrocity," said Sharpton. "I think that it is probably one of the worst situations that I've seen. What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime, just bringing some Skittles and iced tea home to your brother, and be killed and someone can claim self-defense having been exposed with all kinds of lies, all kinds of inconsistencies. ... Even at trial when he is exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted. This is a sad day in the country. I think that we clearly must move on to the next step in terms of the federal government and in terms of the civil courts. Clearly, we want people to be disciplined, strategic. But this is a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country."

This is the real face of racism in this country!!. One day here soon, this man will stand before the Lord, and he will say "I NEVER knew you." Mr. Sharpton, you need to repent of your ways, and actually turn to the Lord, confess your sins and ask forgiveness.

The MEDIA hopped on this because they thought he was a WHITE JEW.

Well, the MSM is really going over-drive in their coverage/post-coverage of this trial - all this does is put Benghazi, Snowden, Monsanto, etc on the backburners...But that's how the world operates...

Protesters of Zimmerman Acquittal March in Calif.

7/14/13

Protesters angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman held largely peaceful demonstrations in three California cities, but broke windows and started small street fires Oakland, police said.

The gatherings Saturday night ranged from a few dozen to a couple hundred people turning out to protest the verdict in the Florida courtroom over the death of Trayvon Martin, and police said some of the demonstrations continued into the early hours Sunday.

The Oakland police dispatch office said about 100 people protested, with some in the crowd breaking windows on businesses and starting small fires in the streets. As the protest wound down with the crowd dispersing, the office said that as of 2 a.m. PDT it had no word of any arrests.

Local media reports said some Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters' path.

The Oakland Tribune said some windows on the newspaper's downtown offices were broken, and footage from a television helicopter show people attempting to start fires in the street and spray painting anti-police graffiti.

Protesters also reportedly burned an American and a California state flag and spray painted Alameda County's Davidson courthouse.

The Oakland demonstration followed a raucous but largely peaceful one in San Francisco. Police say officers escorted demonstrators as they marched on the city's Mission District. The group was dispersed by 10 p.m.

The verdict also sparked protests in Los Angeles, where demonstrators gathered in Leimert Park, the city's historically black neighborhood.

Police said that about 200 protesters gathered for what they termed a peaceful vigil.

City News Service said that at one point a smaller group stopped an Expo Line train as police urged them to return to the nearby park. But police couldn't immediately confirm that report.

Lt. Andy Neiman of the LAPD Media Relations Department said another group of 50 to 100 demonstrators started marching around midnight.

"There was a period where crowds were running among vehicles, but police dissuaded them," he said.

Neiman said he knew of no arrests.

Officials said police called in officers from around the city to keep a watch on demonstrators.

More than 40 people gathered at Sacramento City Hall, and the Sacramento Bee reported that protesters chanted: "What do we want? Justice. When do you we want it? Now. For who? Trayvon."

A banner behind speakers read, "No justice, no peace!"

Marches, rallies follow Zimmerman acquittal

Rallies in support of Trayvon Martin grew in size and intensity Sunday night as protesters in some of America’s largest cities continued demonstrating their anger at the acquittal of George Zimmerman.

In Los Angeles, protesters marched onto Interstate 10, shutting down the freeway for nearly an hour, NBC Los Angeles reported.

The LA Police Department told NBC News that one arrest has been made during a demonstration after protesters threw rocks at police.

LAPD commander Andrew Smith told NBC Los Angeles that officers fired bean bags at some protesters who threw objects at law enforcement.

In New York City, thousands of demonstrators marched from Union Square to the tourist-heavy Times Square Sunday night, slowing and in some cases halting traffic.

WNBC reported the area was gridlocked with people holding signs in support of Martin and calling Zimmerman’s acquittal a failure of the judicial system.

“This is a show of strength, but it’s also a show of solidarity with the (Martin) family because last night what happened was complete disrespect to them,” said Imani Henry, an activist with the People’s Power Assembly who had come for the protest in New York City’s Union Square Sunday afternoon. “We want to show love and respect to them.”

Some in the crowd said they were still in shock over the verdict.

“I’ve been speechless all night, I couldn’t sleep,” said Kelly Knight, a Brooklyn resident who came for the protest.  “I have a young daughter, and I thought, if it happened to him, it could happen to her,” she said.

Local churches across the country were also organizing rallies and urging supporters to wear hoodies in honor of Martin, who was wearing a black hoodie when Zimmerman shot him in the chest on Feb. 26, 2012. Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense after the teen attacked him.

In Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, demonstrators continued to hold rallies well into Sunday evening. Along with expressing solidarity with Martin, many held signs calling for an end to Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which allows people fearing for their lives to use deadly force if they believe their lives are at risk.

In the Florida state capital of Tallahassee on Sunday, roughly 200 protesters, some wearing hoodies, sang songs of justice and carried signs that said "Racism is Not Dead."

After the verdict on Saturday night, in San Francisco about 200 people marched down Mission Street carrying yellow signs that said “the whole system is racist” and “the people say guilty,” NBCBayArea.com reported.

That march dispersed peacefully a little after 10 p.m. local time (1 a.m. ET), but a similar protest in downtown Oakland ended with numerous buildings and cars being vandalized and protesters setting random fires, NBCBayArea.com reported.

There were no reports of injuries or arrests, authorities said.

The verdict also sparked protests in Los Angeles, where police said about 200 demonstrators gathered Saturday in Leimert Park, the AP said.

The Sacramento Bee reported that protesters in the California capital chanted: "What do we want? Justice. When do you we want it? Now. For who? Trayvon."

Though expressions of outrage dominated Sunday’s rallies, many religious leaders used morning services to help begin the healing process following the contentious legal battle.

In New York City, Rev. Jacqueline Lewis wore a pink hoodie during Sunday morning services at Middle Collegiate Church.

She told her congregation to conduct themselves in the peaceful way Martin Luther King Jr. would have wanted and prayed for both Martin and Zimmerman.

“We’re going to pray, and we’re also going to continue to organize, which is what we do,” she told reporters before church services.

Though the most vocal showings since the verdict was read have been in support of Martin, others have used social media to stand up for Zimmerman following his acquittal. Facebook pages proclaiming support for him have thousands of “likes.” 

On the NBC Nightly News Facebook page, one supporter reacted to the verdict, writing, “The justice system works. Zimmerman should never have been arrested.”

Christopher Darden Believes There May Be Justice Yet for Trayvon
Jul 14, 2013 8:35 PM EDT

O.J. Simpson’s prosecutor says he never would have brought the Trayvon case to court. Still, he argues, just putting George Zimmerman on trial was a victory.

“The struggle continues, our work isn’t over,” were the words of Melissa Harris-Perry an hour after the not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. I agree. Work within the African-American community, work within the criminal-justice system and work on a national level to further the debate over racial profiling, civil rights and “stand-your-ground” laws must continue. The power of racial profiling and the power of the gun lobby is a lethal combination in America.

CNN COMMENTATOR EMBARRASSED BY ZIMMERMAN VERDICT

 
By Cliff Kincaid
July 15, 2013
NewsWithViews.com

After the not-guilty verdict was handed down, George Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara strongly criticized the media’s role in getting his client charged in the case. He compared the media to “mad scientists” who had turned Zimmerman into a “monster.” He said the media “took a story that was fed to you and you ran with it and you ran right over him and that was horrid to him.”

But the false story line—that Zimmerman was a racist who shot a black man for no reason—continued during the trial, especially in the reckless and wild CNN commentaries of Asunción “Sunny” Hostin.

Hostin boosted the prosecutors throughoutand wanted viewers to believe a guilty verdict was a slam-dunk. “I think that they [the prosecutors] put the pieces of the puzzle together for this jury extremely well,” she told Anderson Cooper on Thursday night, July 11.

What was astonishing about Hostin’s commentary during the trial was her inability to find much of anything wrong in how the prosecutors presented it. She was sometimes in the courtroom and pretending to pay attention to what was going on, with a focus on jury reactions. She claimed to have somehow divined what some of the jurors were thinking.

She said of the prosecution’s closing argument, “It was passionate. It was convincing. The jury was watching everything he was doing. And what was terrific, I think, about this closing argument is that they brought the focus back to Trayvon Martin, the victim here. They brought the commonsense argument to this jury.”

Fortunately, another CNN commentator, criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos, was usually on hand, takingstrong issue with what Hostin was saying. “There’s reality and then there’s Sunny-ville,” he said. Mocking her rosy view of the prosecution’s extremely weak case, he said, “So I’m going to start believing what Sunny tells me and I’m going to start ignoring everything that I watch on TV.”

Earlier, he told her, “Sunny, you have been bringing your own stuff to the table in this case and you know it.”

Whatever she was bringing to the table, it was not an objective analysis of what was taking place in front of her own eyes.Yet, she carried the title of “CNN Legal Analyst.”

An attorney, she calls herself a “multi-platform journalist” who serves as both a CNN legal analyst and anchor for ABC News. “Before joining CNN, Sunny could be seen on the Fox News Channel, where she was seen weekly on The O’Reilly Factor’s ‘Is It Legal?’ segment, sparring with Megan [sic] Kelly and Bill O’Reilly on various provocative issues and high-profile cases,” her bio says.

Regarding prosecutor John Guy’s rebuttal to the closing argument of defense attorney O’Mara, Hostin said on CNN, “John Guy hit it out of the park, he did great.”

She added, “If people were calling him ‘McDreamy’ before…they’re calling him ‘McBrilliant’ now. It was one of the best closing rebuttal arguments I have seen.The jury was riveted, they did not take their eyes off of this man. And what was so important about it, Anderson [Cooper],is that now I understand why the state was okay with having those six women on the jury, because he specifically just sort of homed-in on what every mother’s nightmare is—her child walking alone in the dark, in the rain being followed by a stranger and being afraid. That resonated with every single mother in the room and it was so effective. It was excellent.”

Geragos countered, “…you’ve got a school-girl crush on this guy?”

Now that the not-guilty verdict is in, CNN has an opportunity to evaluate their stable of commentators and analyze how misleading and inaccurate she really was.But Hostin wasn’t just wrong on how she thought the trial was going,she ignored certain facts that are known to the public in order to make the prosecution’s case against Zimmermanappear better than it was.

Hostin said, “How is it that a young boy, a teenager who was simply on a snack run, did not get back home where he was lawfully allowed to be safely? How is that? That is because George Zimmerman profiled him. He profiled him as a criminal. He made all these assumptions about Trayvon Martin that, by the way, were wrong. And he acted on those assumptions and in doing so, he killed him.”

Of course, much of this commentary is false. Martin was on drugs, as Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, suspected. And Martin had allegedly been involved in burglaries before, since a burglary tool and women’s jewelry had been found in his backpack. In addition, police found a burglary tool discarded in the bushes the night of the confrontation. The judge kept out of the trial the evidence of Martin’s involvement in fighting and violence.

What’s more, the overwhelmingevidence in the trial demonstrated that Martin confronted Zimmerman and threw the first punch, that Zimmerman cried for help, and fired his gun in self-defense.

Nevertheless, Hostinsaid the prosecutors made “such a wonderful commonsense argument that distilled what this case is about. This case is about whether or not someone who is not doing anything, who is acting completely unlawfully, should be able to be gunned down on a dark, rainy night. I think that really came across.”

At one point during their exchanges, before the jury deliberated the case, Geragos put his finger on it, saying,”…frankly Sunny, I guess the only way we will ever know, the only way we’ll ever know, when I will stand corrected and, you know, worship at your psychic…feats of wonder...is when we get a verdict.”

FBI records: agents found no evidence that Zimmerman was racist

After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.

Even the lead detective in the case, Sanford Det. Chris Serino, told agents that he thought Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because of his attire and the circumstances — but not his race.

Serino saw Zimmerman as “having little hero complex, but not as a racist.”

The Duval County State Attorney released another collection of evidence in the Zimmerman murder case Thursday, including reports from FBI agents who investigated whether any racial bias was involved in Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing.

The evidence includes bank surveillance videos from the day of the killing, crime scene photos and memos from prosecutors.

Among the documents is a note from the prosecutor who said one of the witnesses said her son, a minor, had felt pressured by investigators to say the injured man he saw was wearing a red top. The boy’s testimony had been considered key, because it backed up Zimmerman’s allegation that he — wearing red — was being pummeled.

Federal agents interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors and co-workers, but none said Zimmerman had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26 shooting of Martin, a black teen, in a confrontation at a Sanford housing complex. As Sanford police investigated the circumstances of Martin’s death, the FBI opened a parallel probe to determine if Martin’s civil rights had been violated.

Several co-workers said they had never seen Zimmerman display any prejudice or racial bias.

Two co-workers told agents they spoke with Zimmerman the day after the shooting, and both said they noticed injuries to Zimmerman’s nose and the back of his head. One person said Zimmerman was “absolutely devastated.”

Zimmerman told both colleagues that he followed Martin — whom Zimmerman described as a “suspicious person” — so he could tell police where the teen went, but was then “jumped” by Martin. Zimmerman told both that Martin reached for Zimmerman’s gun before Zimmerman shot Martin.

In all, the FBI interviewed 35 people about Zimmerman, from current and former co-workers to neighbors and an ex-girlfriend.

Among the revelations found in nearly 300 pages of records:

• Zimmerman arrived at one of his police interviews with a friend who works as an air marshal. That friend told police Zimmerman was physically abused by his mother and had been estranged from his family.

• The day Zimmerman turned himself in to be charged with second-degree murder, authorities confiscated a handgun from his car.

• A gun dealer called police to say that some time in mid-March, Zimmerman called to say he was afraid for his life and “needed more guns.”

• An ex-girlfriend said Zimmerman had outbursts and sometimes threatened suicide. She suspected it was a result of Accutane, the acne medicine he took. She said he was the “last person in the world” she thought would be involved in such an incident.

• The ex girlfriend said she and Zimmerman had a violent argument when she caught him on a singles dating web site, even though they were engaged to be married.

• Trayvon’s cousin said he would swear “on a stack of bibles” that the person shouting in a 911 tape that recorded screams during the struggle was Trayvon.

Zimmerman, 28, claims Trayvon attacked him, breaking his nose and slamming his head on the concrete at the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhouse complex. Specially appointed prosecutors who investigated the case charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder, which carries a potential life sentence.

The state attorney’s office says Zimmerman wrongly assumed Trayvon was a criminal, and says he did not suffer injuries serious enough to require deadly force to defend himself.

The U.S. Department of Justice and FBI stepped in about a month after the killing, as protesters nationwide criticized the investigation. The original probe was conducted by police in Sanford, the central Florida community where Zimmerman lives and Trayvon was visiting while suspended from school.

Zimmerman Verdict Drew Millions to Cable TV

Despite breaking late on a weekend evening, the verdict in the murder trial of George Zimmerman attracted an audience of more than 10 million viewers to cable news networks, a huge total for a Saturday night.

Preliminary ratings showed that for the hour from 10 to 11 p.m. when the verdict came in, Fox News and CNN both attracted well over 3 million viewers, while MSNBC trailed badly with only about 1.3 million.

Fox had the highest number, 3.68 million viewers, just ahead of CNN with 3.4 million. But CNN outpaced Fox News among the viewers that television advertisers pay most to reach, those between the ages of 25 and 54. In that category, CNN had 1.72 million viewers to 1.11 million for Fox News. MSNBC had only 510,000.

MSNBC actually finished in fourth place over all, also coming in behind CNN’s sister network HLN, which is known for covering criminal trials. HLN had 2.2 million total viewers for third in that category and 980,000 in the 25-54 group, which also placed it third.

Justice Department faces evidence hurdles in proving Zimmerman bias after verdict

The Justice Department was running into immediate hurdles Monday in its investigation of possible civil rights violations by George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin -- namely, that after examining the case for more than a year, the evidence has not changed.
 
Though the department announced after Zimmerman's acquittal that it would consider a possible federal case, previously filed FBI documents show agents have not turned up any accounts that Zimmerman, before the February 2012 shooting, exhibited racial bias. Sanford police detective Chris Serino also told FBI agents last year that he considered Zimmerman as having "a little hero complex, but not as a racist."
 
Attorney General Eric Holder, in his first post-verdict comments, confirmed Monday during a speech in Washington, D.C., that his department continues to investigate while signaling concern for the position of the Martin family and those -- such as the NAACP -- pressuring the DOJ. He said the department is "mindful of the pain felt by our nation" over the "tragic, unnecessary shooting death" of Martin.
 
"The Justice Department shares your concern -- I share your concern," Holder said.
 
He added that the shooting provides an opportunity to speak "honestly" about the charged issues involved in the case, and that "we must not ... let this opportunity pass." Holder even appeared to suggest the possibility of bias in this case, saying it's important to address "underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too common incidents."
 
Still, the attorney general said his department would act in a "manner that is consistent with the facts and the law."
 
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney indicated that President Obama would keep his distance from the consideration, adding that the merits of the case will be "evaluated by the professionals at the Department of Justice."
 
But Florida defense attorney Brian Tannebaum told FoxNews.com that the "number one challenge" for DOJ is the evidence, or lack thereof.
 
"There's been an acquittal. The evidence has not changed. It's not like the feds are going to go in and find more evidence," he said.
 
Tannebaum said he understands the Justice Department was responding to intense public sentiment, but "I don't foresee it becoming a federal case."
 
The question of racial bias is key because if the Justice Department were to pursue a federal case against Zimmerman, federal hate-crimes law is one of the few tools the department would have.
 
The statute itself bars "willfully" causing injury to someone else "because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person."
 
The department has used federal civil rights law before to pursue defendants who had been acquitted at the state level. But in what is perhaps the most famous such case -- the Rodney King beating -- the circumstances were different.
 
First, there was a highly publicized video of the King beating. No such video of the Martin shooting is known to exist.
 
Second, the two officers ultimately convicted on federal charges in that case were charged with using or permitting unreasonable force under "color of law" -- this applies only to law enforcement.
 
The separate federal hate-crimes law applies to both law enforcement and civilians. But it's not clear how the Justice Department could prove racial bias.
 
Serino, the Sanford detective, told FBI agents last year that after examining the case, it appeared Zimmerman was suspicious of Martin because of his "attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community."
 
Serino told the FBI that there had been several burglaries in the area, and that gang members in the community "typically dressed in black and wore hoodies."
 
"When Zimmerman saw Martin in a hoody, Zimmerman took it upon himself to view Martin as acting suspicious," Serino said, while describing Zimmerman as "overzealous." The FBI document was posted on the Smoking Gun website.
 
McClatchy also has reported on another set of documents that show FBI agents interviewed a dozens of people in the course of probing possible racial bias but nobody would say Zimmerman showed such bias before the shooting.
 
Still, the Justice Department agreed to requests from NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous and several lawmakers to keep investigating the defendant.
 
"The Department of Justice's Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division, the United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue to evaluate the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial," the Justice Department said in a statement Sunday.  "Experienced federal prosecutors will [now] determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction, and whether federal prosecution is appropriate in accordance with the Department's policy governing successive federal prosecution following a state trial."
 
The department may find itself in a vulnerable spot, not only because of prior interviews which found no evidence of bias.
 
Last week, a conservative watchdog accused an obscure agency within the DOJ of helping support the "pressure campaign" against Zimmerman in the wake of the shooting last year. Judicial Watch claimed documents and public accounts showed "extraordinary intervention" by the department in the campaign that eventually led to Zimmerman's prosecution.
 
The department, however, claims that it dispatched agency representatives to reduce tensions in the community - not to take sides.
 
The department is under heavy pressure from some groups to pursue the case further.
 
Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., and other House Democrats called a press conference on Monday to urge the Justice Department to "conduct an immediate and thorough investigation."
 
The NAACP started the drive to pressure the DOJ to continue its probe by posting a petition Sunday morning on the website MoveOn.org.
 
"The most fundamental of civil rights -- the right to life -- was violated the night George Zimmerman stalked and then took the life of Trayvon Martin," the group wrote.   
 
Attorney General Eric Holder plans to speak at the NAACP convention on Tuesday.

Yeah, and they showed it by sending in DOJ teams to stir up the protesters, and to even advise them on protesting!

Notice Holder, Director of the Justice Department, the top lawyers in the US, used the word "unnecessary" after an acquittal. That's inflammatory in itself!

Witness claims youths yelled 'this is for Trayvon' in beating
Police still investigating claim in beating of Hispanic man


Good job Sharpton!! Is this the race war you wanted?

Baltimore police say they are investigating a witness account that a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man near Patterson Park Sunday while saying, "This is for Trayvon."

A witness posted the account on a community Facebook page, and police confirmed they are looking into whether the suspects' reaction to the verdict in the Florida trial of George Zimmerman played a part in the incident. A police report on the beating does not mention the alleged comments.

Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk, a police spokesman, declined to go into further detail.

Juror: 'No doubt' that George Zimmerman feared for his life

One of the jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman said she had "no doubt" he feared for his life in the final moments of his struggle with Trayvon Martin, and that was the definitive factor in the verdict.

The woman, who was identified just as Juror B37, spoke exclusively to CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" on Monday night. She is the first juror to speak publicly about the case.

She said she believes Zimmerman's "heart was in the right place" the night he shot Martin, but that he didn't use "good judgment" in confronting the Florida teen.

"I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place, but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods, and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done," she said.

"But I think his heart was in the right place. It just went terribly wrong."

If anything, Zimmerman was guilty of not using "good judgment," the juror said.

"When he was in the car, and he had called 911, he shouldn't have gotten out of that car," she said.

She also said she believes Martin threw the first punch in the confrontation that followed.

"I think George got in a little bit too deep, which he shouldn't have been there. But Trayvon decided that he wasn't going to let him scare him ... and I think Trayvon got mad and attacked him," she said.

Zimmerman felt his life was in danger before shooting Martin, and it was his voice that was heard screaming for help in 911 calls, the juror said she believes.

"He had a right to defend himself," she said. "If he felt threatened that his life was going to be taken away from him, or he was going to have bodily harm, he had a right."

Split vote

An initial vote was divided. Three of the jurors first voted Zimmerman was guilty, while three voted he was not guilty, she said. Juror B37 was among those who believed he was not guilty from the start.

"There was a couple of them in there that wanted to find him guilty of something and after hours and hours and hours of deliberating over the law, and reading it over and over and over again, we decided there's just no way, other place to go," she said.

Jurors were not identified by name during the trial, which sparked a broad debate about gun laws and race in America.

The juror said she did not believe Zimmerman profiled Martin, who was African-American, because of the color of his skin.

She believes he thought Martin was suspicious because of the way he acted.

"Anybody would think anybody walking down the road, stopping and turning and looking -- if that's exactly what happened -- is suspicious," she said.

"I think all of us thought race did not play a role," the juror said . "We never had that discussion."

At one point during the interview, she grew emotional and her voice cracked. She said jurors cried after putting in their vote.

"It's a tragedy this happened. But it happened," the juror said.

"And I think both were responsible for the situation they had gotten themselves into. I think both of them could have walked away. It just didn't happen."

Book plans canceled

The juror was planning to write a book about her experience with the case, literary agent Sharlene Martin said before her interview aired.

But hours later, the agent released a statement from Juror B37 saying she would no longer write one.

"Now that I am returned to my family and to society in general, I have realized that the best direction for me to go is away from writing any sort of book and return instead to my life as it was before I was called to sit on this jury," the juror said.

"I realize it was necessary for our jury to be sequestered in order to protest our verdict from unfair outside influence, but that isolation shielded me from the depth of pain that exists among the general public over every aspect of this case."

Verdict debate doesn't end debate in Martin's death

Zimmerman Acquittal in Trayvon Martin Case Sparks Pulpit Protests, Pleas for Personal Repentance

Pastors across the country passionately expressed their opinion over the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin on Sunday, with some taking to the pulpit in outrage and others calling for national and personal repentance.
 
Zimmerman was found not guilty on Saturday of second-degree murder in a case that has gripped the attention of the nation and has raised questions as to whether Martin was the victim of racial profiling or whether Zimmerman lawfully acted in self-defense. Zimmerman, a 29-year-old Hispanic, shot and killed Martin, a 17-year-old African American, in February of last year during a tussle in a suburb outside of Orlando.
 
“I think the prosecution of George Zimmerman was disgraceful,” defense attorney Don West told reporters after leaving the courtroom Saturday. “As happy as I am for George Zimmerman, I’m thrilled that this jury kept this tragedy from becoming a travesty.”
 
However, prosecutors asserted that Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch leader, acted as a “wannabe cop” in that he allegedly took it upon himself to address problems with crime in the community.

 

“I think that gun in his mind empowered him to approach [Martin] because what he was trying to do was detain Trayvon Martin so he wouldn’t get away because all the prior guys had gotten away,” contended lead prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda. “He was acting like a cop when he didn’t have the power.”
 
Following the verdict Saturday night, a number of pastors across the nation addressed the topic with their congregations, some of whom even wore hoodies in support of Martin.
 
“I knew I would be wearing my hoodie while preaching,” Pastor Tony Lee of Community of Hope Church near the nation’s capital told the Huffington Post, “and I wrote to all the pastoral staff that hoodies are welcome.”

“You see people of all walks of life wearing hoodies, so this is a sign of solidarity, we’re standing with the Martin family, we’re standing with the community,” said Bishop Victor Couzens of Inspirational Baptist Church in Forest Park, Ohio, according to WLWT-TV. “We will not be violent, [but] we will not be silent either. At the end of the day, we are Christians and we are compelled to love. We are called to love, but we are also called to action as well.”
 
Michael Jordan of New Era Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama even posted a message on the church sign that reads, “George Zimmerman jury supported white racism.”
 
However, Pastor Victor Montalvo of Reality Community Church in Sanford, Florida–where the trial took place–seemed to take a more neutral approach to the verdict.
 
“Did the jury make the right call? I just don’t know,” he wrote in an article entitled The Verdict is In … And We all Lost. “We will never know. We can’t really know, and that is terribly unsettling.”

“The news, the talking heads, the activists, they just wanted a monster. They wanted someone to blame, someone to hate,” Montalvo continued. “They tried to paint George Zimmerman as a hotheaded, racist, wannabe vigilante. If that wasn’t sticking, they tried painting Trayvon Martin as a reckless, drug-using thug looking for trouble. Both were horribly wrong, but more people watched, and more people seethed.”
 
He stated that instead of looking to point fingers, Americans should deal with the sin in their own hearts.
 
“[W]e must also pray for ourselves, that we would recognize the cause of the pain of this world and deal with the sin of our hearts that so deeply distorts everything it encounters,” Montalvo said.
 
“We can look to Christ who took upon Himself our sin and pain,” he concluded. “This world is pretty messed up, but we have a Savior that catches every tear, comforts every loss, crushes every sin and makes all things brand new.”

At the risk of being sucked into Obama’s vortex of Saul-Alinsky-Rules-for-Radicals-goal-of-stirring-up-racial-conflict-and-class-warfare, (“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon, The (white) police acted stupidly”), I must point out what the Mainstream Media won’t – Blacks kill Whites, a lot, and over 70 Blacks were shot by Blacks over the 4th of July weekend in Chicago. Did they look like Obama’s sons?

Why wasn’t this Knoxville story, “4 blacks kill white couple” on the TV network news for months? How does the media decide which murders to sensationalize?

James Patrick Riley says, “… If there is any racism in the system, it is skewed so far in the favor of blacks, that, frankly, it should be an embarrassment for those in the “race industry.” FBI crime stats show that when there is a black/white incidence of violence, in 88 to 91% of the cases, the victim is white. Just last week, in St. Louis three black men were arrested on a “kill whitey” crime spree. Was Rachel Maddow wringing her hands over that? No. As to the case in question, I’d have to look, but I would defend anyone who was forced to defend themselves — even a gung ho neighborhood watch guy who was getting his head slammed on the cement.”
 
Here’s one of the racially motivated “hate crimes” the Mainstream Media refuses to report, let alone turn into a 6 month story;
 
“Channon Gail Christian, 21, and Hugh Christopher Newsom, Jr., 23, were a couple from Knoxville, Tennessee. They were raped, tortured, and murdered after being kidnapped early on the morning of January 7, 2007. Christian’s vehicle had been carjacked. Five suspects were arrested and charged in the case. The grand jury indicted four of the suspects on counts of capital murder, robbery, kidnapping, ****, and theft, while a fifth was indicted at the federal level. Of the four charged at the state level, three (Letalvis D. Cobbins, Lemaricus Davidson, and George Thomas) had multiple prior felony convictions. After a jury trial, Lemaricus Davidson was sentenced to death by lethal injection and Letalvis Cobbins and George Thomas were sentenced to life in prison, Cobbins without the possibility of parole and Thomas with the possibility. Vanessa Coleman has been convicted of facilitating the crimes and sentenced to 53 years in prison, and Eric Dewayne Boyd has been convicted of federal charges as accessory after the fact to carjacking and sentenced to 18 years in prison…”

“Christian and Newsom were leaving an apartment together to go to a friend’s party when they were abducted from the apartment complex parking lot. Christian’s parents found her abandoned Toyota 4-Runner two blocks away from the Chipman Street house the following Monday with the help of her mobile phone provider. An envelope recovered from the vehicle yielded fingerprint evidence that led police to Lemaricus Davidson and 2316 Chipman Street. When police went to the address on Tuesday, January 9, they found the house unoccupied and Christian’s body in a bin in the kitchen.
 
According to the testimony of the Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan at the subsequent trial of Eric Boyd, Newsom was repeatedly sodomized with an object and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet bound and his head covered. Barefoot, he was dragged outside the house to a set of nearby railroad tracks. He was sexually mutilated, shot in the back of his head, neck and back and his body was then set on fire.
 
According to the testimony of the medical examiner, Channon’s death came after hours of torture, having suffered injuries to her ****, anus and mouth. She was raped with an unidentified object and beaten in the head. It was also reported that her body was scrubbed with bleach which was also poured down her throat, in an attempt by her attackers to remove DNA evidence, while Channon was still alive. She was then bound with curtains and strips of bedding, her face covered with a bin liner and her body stashed within five large bin bags, before being placed inside a residential waste disposal unit and covered with sheets. The medical examiner said there was evidence that Channon slowly suffocated to death. (Wikipedia)
 
“Five Cases of Black on White Crime People Want on National TV.” Story here.
 
There were no cars overturned, no spray-painted police cars, no crashed-in store windows, no fires, and no angry mobs when these white people were killed by black people.

Some Thoughts on the Zimmerman Trial


The George Zimmerman Trial became one of the biggest trials in U. S. History so far, and I say "so far" because at this rate there might be many more of these spectacles.  In light of all the murder and mayhem across the country and world, this one should not have been rated so important, which is why I say it "became" big.  A first thought is one you've already heard with which I agree, that is, this non-crime shouldn't have gone to trial in the first place.  There was no evidence of either second degree murder or manslaughter.  There was only evidence of self-defense.  It only went trial because of race baiting opportunists, who exploited this tragedy for personal or political gain.  This country is already in steep decline, but if we continue to allow this type of circumstance to continue, we'll slide even faster to total demise.
 
It's got to be really tough to lose a child like the Martin's did, no matter what their personal condition, and I thought about being in their shoes.  I have one son.  If I were in their shoes, I know how I would react to it.  If it were reverse, and Zimmerman was black and my son was the one who died, I'm saying I know how I would be.  First, I would understand that I had totally blown it as a parent.  I would have seen it as mainly my fault.  I would have seen it as my fault that I had a child that was just allowed to run in a way that he was far too unaccountable.  I would have seen it as my fault that I didn't even know where my child was at.  I would know that I did not bring him up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord for whatever reason.  The parents weren't together and perhaps it would be because of the condition of my marriage.  There were many bad decisions these parents made that resulted in their child's death.  I would have already seen myself as largely at fault for that.
 
At this point, the country has seen the pictures of Trayvon proudly puffing on the marijuana and posing in all sorts of rebellious ways.  We know about his filthy mouth.  We know about the kind of people with whom he kept company.  All of those were a recipe for disaster.  I know that not doing enough about those or not doing anything about them would have been enough for me to understand why this happened to my son.  I would know that.  I would understand that.  I would blame that on no one else.  I would be sad, but I would point the finger straight at myself for that.  Sure, I would wish that Zimmerman had done better at the gym in getting in shape and learning out to defend himself that he didn't need a gun, but I would completely understand his use of the gun.  People can carry a handgun.  You know that in Florida.  If you know that, then you stay out of the kind of trouble that could get you shot.
 
Second, I would accept why my son died.  I wouldn't like it, but I could accept it.  You can't get away with all foolish behavior.  All of us get away with a certain amount in our lives, where we could have or even should have been killed.  Our lives could have ended suddenly.  The more of that type of behavior, the greater the opportunity to have our lives terminate sooner than what we would like.  We have a responsibility to train our children in that.  Eli didn't warn his sons Hophni and Phinehas enough, so they both died, and he knew it was because of him.  This was a case when the wrong decisions resulted in his death.  Really one different decision out of several different decisions that night could have been enough for him to still be living.  I would have wished for a different outcome, like I have wished for a different outcome when I'm caught speeding, but I know I deserve it, so I accept it.  I'm hoping for mercy, but I understand when I don't get it.  I could hope for mercy for my son, but I would understand why that didn't happen.  We don't deserve mercy.  If you can't learn to walk away from certain situations, or just run away from someone you are twice as fast as, then you are going to get in trouble.
 
What I'm saying is that if my son died that way, and at the hands of a black Zimmerman, I would believe my son deserved it.  I wish he didn't have to pay such a price for a few bad decisions, but I would have understood why he died.  I wouldn't feel bitter about Zimmerman.  I wouldn't expect the justice system to do anything.  I would fully conceive of why it shouldn't and wouldn't go to trial.  I would not try to force the justice system to give me a trial.  It would be very apparent why the event transpired.
 
Trayvon Martin didn't die because he was walking through a neighborhood at night in the rain.  He didn't die because he bought Skittles and an Arizona ice tea.  He didn't get killed because he was black.  He didn't lose his life when he didn't do anything wrong or when he was just going about his own business.  He didn't pass away because of his hoodie.  Every single one of those could have happened and he still easily would have made it back to his dad's house safe and sound with no possibility of dying that night.  This was not a complicated case.  Anyone that had just certain basics of the case knows that everything I'm saying is true.  I believe the main race baiters of the left know this to be true.  They are either lying or they are of such destitute minds that they are able to convince themselves that their lies are true.
 
If someone were taught just basic civilized human behavior, he would have known how to have survived that night in that neighborhood with George Zimmerman.  One, learn how not to look suspicious.  You look suspicious when you take a shortcut through a neighborhood in the dark in the rain with a hoodie covering your face and talking on a cell phone.  That's just common sense.  If you don't think so, then get some common sense. Get.  Some.  Maybe you don't have that ability.  Your average lifespan is probably going to be shorter then.  Don't be surprised at an early demise.  You say, "He was just a kid."  True, which is why he shouldn't have been out at all after dark until he was taught some common sense.  If the parent doesn't have common sense, then it's easy to understand how the child doesn't have it.  This has nothing to do with being black, white, Asian, or Hispanic.  Common sense is, well, common.
 
I know what it's like to be young, athletic, fast, and scared.  When I felt that way, I ran.  If there was a potential threat, I ran.  I ran until I was in a safe place.  I remember running through a dark woods on my walk home after late away sporting activities.  We lived near the school, and I walked across a field, a woods, a railroad track, and then to home.  I often ran when I got to the woods and there wasn't even moonlight.  When you are scared, you run.  If I looked at a Zimmerman looking guy, and I wasn't sure about him, I would run home.   I would train my kids not to have been there in the first place, but at that point, they would have known that it was time to run.  Run home.  If you are really scared, use the cell phone and call 911.  Why aren't we hearing this type of instruction coming from the folks related to Trayvon?  It might be your right to walk through the neighborhood, but that doesn't mean that there aren't dangerous people around.  Don't risk it.  Run.  Trayvon Martin was so much faster than George Zimmerman, and as the evidence showed, he didn't need to get close to him.  How could he have ever gotten close enough to Zimmerman to break Zimmerman's nose and cut and bruise the back of his head, and put abrasions on every side of his head, if he was trying to avoid Zimmerman before he got shot?
 
The prosecutor started his closing argument with, "He didn't do anything wrong!"  I understand he was trying to win the case by saying something other people have also now said.  You shouldn't be able to win a jury, and I don't think you do, by lying and insulting its intelligence.  Of course Martin did something wrong.  He punched Zimmerman in the nose.  That should have never happened if Trayvon Martin was minding his own business, was afraid, and just wanted to get home.  Please.  Don't insult our intelligence with that.  Others have said, the injuries on Zimmerman weren't that bad.  Right.  He had a broken nose, lacerations on the back of his head, abrasions all over his head, and Martin had no injuries before the gunshot wound.  Using only a little available intelligence tells you that the injuries to Zimmerman could have been worse had Martin lived in order to keep going.  When you are taking a beating, and the beating stops because you shot your assailant, you can't say how bad the beating would have been.  What degree and length of beating are you required to take before you stop it with your gun?  Do you have to go unconscious?  At the moment it is happening, do you really think that Zimmerman can judge what is the correct amount of assault to endure before he stops it with his gun?
 
You don't carry a handgun for self-defense only in case someone else has a handgun, so you can win a gun fight.  You carry a handgun too in case you could get mugged or beat up by a more skilled or stronger or more athletic fighter.  In those cases, you shoot an unarmed man.  Landing a fist in your face and slamming your head on the ground is a physical threat.  It is a reason someone carries a handgun.  If I'm walking in New York City at night, and I am confronted by someone, who throws me against the wall, punches me, knocks me to the ground, and then starts slamming my head against the ground, and I have a gun, what do you think I should do?  Really.
 
If someone took the best case scenario for Trayvon Martin, there still wasn't evidence of a murder.  The best case for Martin would be that we don't know who was screaming on the 911 tape, we don't know who started the fight, that Zimmerman was in fact following him, and that Zimmerman had "profiled" him.  The problem with his best case scenario is that there is much better evidence that it was Zimmerman who was screaming, that Martin punched Zimmerman first in the nose, that Zimmerman wasn't following him in the manner that the prosecution tried to persuade the jury, and that there wasn't anything illegal for a private citizen to profile someone.  Who is a neighborhood watchman supposed to be watching for?  This goes back to common sense.  He watches for suspicious people.  If he sees anyone, and I mean anyone, he thinks is suspicious, he has now profiled someone.  Everyone profiles other people all the time.  If you hire someone, you've profiled that person.  If you don't hire someone, he's been profiled too.
 
I feel very little sympathy for George Zimmerman.  If I had a son, he wouldn't look like George Zimmerman, is what I'm saying.  I'm not even utilizing any kind of unique Christian experience or leadership or wisdom that I might have with this.  What I'm writing here relates to basic common sense.  Is that missing much more because of a lack of true conversions in the United States?  Absolutely.  But it doesn't take supernatural discernment to come to the same conclusions that I'm stating here.
 
Some said that they thought it was at least manslaughter, if not second degree murder.  Anyone who says that doesn't know what he's talking about. Stephen Curry, the guard for the Golden State Warriors, tweeted that.  He said he watched it closely and thought at least manslaughter.  Watching it closely doesn't explain a manslaughter possibility.  It wasn't easier in this case to get a manslaughter charge than a second degree murder charge.  The defense for both was self-defense.  If you decide it was self-defense, neither of those charges would stick.  Saying it was manslaughter doesn't understand manslaughter.  The only reason for manslaughter here would be if the jury wanted Zimmerman to be punished in some way because Martin was killed.  I think that's where most people are today who want Zimmerman in jail.  It's not justice they want.  They want revenge.  When they say there wasn't justice, they don't understand justice or a just system.  In our system, to be guilty, that guilt must be proven beyond reasonable doubt.  For those who question this jury, they wanted the jury to come back with a verdict based upon a low degree of probability.  The idea is that if it was even possible that Zimmerman was guilty, then he should be punished, and that's what a manslaughter charge should be for.  The existence of manslaughter was in case that the prosecution could convince the jury purely on emotional grounds.  If there was no proof for second degree they could split the difference with a manslaughter.  In this case, the jury followed the law, which disappointed people who have little respect for the law.
 
Some are saying that the reason for the injustice here is because it was 5 white women and 1 Hispanic woman.  Those people are not racists, right?  They aren't sexists either, right?  When the experts said the prosecution was trying to sway the jury with emotion because they were six women, where was the outcry?  That's discriminatory, right?  Women aren't more emotional then men, or at least you can't say that, or you're sexist, I've been told.
 
Al Sharpton said they always had "plan B," if this didn't work.  Plan B is a federal civil rights suit brought against Zimmerman.  You get your trial, but you don't get your guilty verdict, and so you have another alternative.  Al Sharpton is twisted.  He's got some kind of outlook or attitude that disallows him from seeing  the world accurately.  Zimmerman never even mentioned whether Trayvon Martin was black, until he was asked whether the suspicious person was black, white, or hispanic, and he said he thought he was black.  If it's illegal for a citizen to profile, then why is that racial question asked?  Isn't everyone profiled then when there is a question about race on even government applications?
 
You reader might think this is insensitive to black people, that black people are far less likely to get justice and this Zimmerman trial only reinforces that conception.  Everyone -- red or yellow, black or white -- needs to know what and why this happened.  The instinct to blame these situations on others is against what is necessary to prevent more unnecessary deaths.
 
This country should not put up with the riots and the misbehavior stemming from this jury decision.  All criminal reaction should be dealt with according to the full force of the law.  No one should be excused.  If our country does not, it's only going to get worse.  Finally, the solution always comes back to the true gospel.  The only answer for America is a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

this is just weird. The Florida Stand your Ground Law wasnt even used in the trial. This is part of the NWO Agenda here.

Stevie Wonder Boycotting Florida Following Zimmerman Verdict (Video)

In the wake of the George Zimmerman acquittal, the singer said he would not be performing in the Sunshine State until its Stand Your Ground law is "abolished." He also said he would not be performing in any other state that recognizes the law, which some say contributed to Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.

this is just weird. The Florida Stand your Ground Law wasnt even used in the trial. This is part of the NWO Agenda here.

Despite the acquittal - not only was the judge in this trial a Jeb Bush appointee, but Zimmerman's lawyers had ties to this judge(ie-they gave campaign contributions to her).

No wonder why Zimmerman's attorneys didn't even speak up on this - they were all on the same team to begin with(not just Obama and Holder spearheading this by themselves).

Ultimately, Zimmerman's reputation has been tarnished.

oohh, it was a hate crime against homosexuals!!!

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: An entirely new perspective on this whole sordid incident was provided by Rachel Jeantel last night on CNN.  Everybody's been under the impression that Zimmerman was a racist, and that's why he went after Trayvon.  I went to great lengths yesterday, folks, to break this down and tell you what I think this was really all about. I'm not gonna repeat that but it is at RushLimbaugh.com.  Essentially, it was about economics.

You've got a bunch of people in this community that are barely hanging on.  They've worked very hard to get where they are and there are all kinds of robberies and things, and they're just tired of being stolen from, and they've got a Neighborhood Watch and so forth. It's about the Obama economy.  But the media and everybody has been saying since this happened, "Zimmerman's a white racist!"

You know as well as I do they've been doing everything they can to portray this as Zimmerman chasing a guy because he was black.  Well, Zimmerman's the guy that got beaten up in this.  Everybody forgets that.  Zimmerman is the guy who got beat up.  Now we know why, from a witness for the prosecution who was on CNN last night, Rachel Jeantel.  Race wasn't even a factor.  When she was asked to define "creepy ass cracka," and "n-i-g-g-a," it wasn't racial.

Not one definition she gave for any of these terms being used had to do with race.

"Creepy ass cracka"?

That's "a police."

"N-i-g-g-a"?

That's "a male."

You gotta say n-i-g-g-e-r to make it racist.  There wasn't any race.  The jury didn't deliberate race.  The race aspect was totally manufactured by the media.  So listen to Rachel Jeantel's answer to Piers Morgan.  The question, "But you felt that there was no doubt in your mind from what Trayvon was telling you on the phone about the 'creepy ass cracka' and so on, that he absolutely believed that George Zimmerman, this man -- you didn't know who he was at the time, but this man -- was pursuing him?  And he was freaked out by it?"

So Piers Morgan is asking Rachel Jeantel, "Why was Trayvon Martin 'freaked out'?"  Now, everybody has been led to believe that Trayvon was freaked out because some white guy was chasing him, but let's be honest.  Zimmerman's not a white guy!  It was raining. It's nighttime. He's of dark complexion. He's an Hispanic.  This "white Hispanic" is a media creation.  There wasn't any racial component here, folks.  This is what's crucially important.

The racial component is a pure media fabrication because of the existence of their narrative that this nation is still, essentially, a slave state.  But Trayvon Martin wasn't thinking about race, and we know this because Rachel Jeantel talked to him.  So, again, Piers Morgan's question: "But you felt that there was no doubt in your mind from what Trayvon was telling you on the phone about the 'creepy ass cracka' and so on, that he absolutely believed that George Zimmerman, this man -- you didn't know who he was at the time, but this man -- was pursuing him?  And he was freaked out by it?"

Why was he freaked out by it, Rachel?

JEANTEL:  Yes.  Definitely. After I say, "Might be a rapist."  For every boys or every man, every who's not that kinda way, see a grown man following them, would they be creep out?  So you gotta take as a parent. You tell a child, "You see a grown person follow it you, run away," and all that.

Folks, there's no race in there.

There's no inference.

You can't infer race from what she said.  There's certainly no racial implication that she made.  Well, here's what she said, "Definitely. After I say" to him... She's reporting and recounting her telephone call. (paraphrased) "Definitely. After I say to Trayvon, 'Zimmerman might be a rapist!'" I'm translating for you. "Zimmerman might be a rapist.  That makes him gay." He's a guy, folks. Male rapist. Rachel is telling Martin... This guy's chasing him. He doesn't know why he's chasing him.

Rachel, says, "He may be a rapist, Trayvon," and then she said, "For every boys or every man, every who's not that kinda way," that means who's not gay, "you see a grown man following 'em, you be creep out."  So she was saying, Trayvon is straight; he's got this adult male chasing him. She's put the idea out that this adult male might be a rapist, and Trayvon "be creep out" by being chased by a gay guy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZlMg3tgQ7M&feature=player_embedded

And then she went further. "So you gotta take as a parent. You tell a child, 'You see a grown person following you, run away,' and all that."

Grown person.

Not racial.  Not "white person."  "Grown person."  You, as a kid, "You see a grown person following you," as a parent, you tell your child, "run away."  Then she also said, "And people need to understand, he didn't want that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend's house to go get -- mind you, his little brother was there." You need me to translate that?  Okay.  She has put in Trayvon's mind that Zimmerman is gay.  Zimmerman might be a rapist, and a predator.

What are we to think?  "Grown man." When she says Trayvon's a male, Zimmerman's a male, and she says rapist, what are we talking about here?  We're talking about a gay predator.  She has put the idea in Trayvon Martin's head that this might be a gay predator chasing him.  Then she said on Piers Morgan last night, "And people need to understand, he didn’t want that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend’s house to go get..."

Trayvon's staying at his father's girlfriend's house, and she is saying people need to understand Trayvon didn't want Zimmerman, that potential rapist, "that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend’s house to go get," and then she paused, and said, "[M]ind you, his little brother was there." So she was saying that Trayvon wouldn't want this gay predator chasing him down to his house where there is a little kid inside.  Nowhere in any of this is race mentioned.

Jeantel also said this about Zimmerman being a rapist on the witness stand, under oath.  It wasn't just last night with Piers Morgan on CNN.  She also alluded to this.  So, folks, do you understand? We have been, the country has been entirely fooled.  (The jury wasn't, by the way.)  There was no racial component in this at all.  Rachel Jeantel didn't talk about race.  She wasn't talking about race at all.  She wasn't worried. She didn't tell Trayvon to run away from a white guy.  "Creepy ass cracka" is police.

So maybe, in their minds, Zimmerman is a gay male predator hiding behind a badge, which gives him access to little boys. I mean, this is the way certain people think, and we already know that she believed that Zimmerman was a rapist, or potential rapist, and put that thought in Trayvon's head, and Trayvon didn't run away.  He turned around and started beating up on Zimmerman.  Not because Zimmerman was "a white Hispanic." He didn't even know what he was!

I mean, it's dark and rainy. Zimmerman's of dark-complexion, too.  The race angle in this has been absurd from the get-go.  So essentially Rachel was saying... When she says,  "And people need to understand, he didn't want that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend’s house to go get -- mind you, his little brother was there," she is saying that this guy, this rapist, after finishing with Trayvon, might then go after his little brother.

She told Trayvon to run, run, run.


I thought, when I heard this last night, that that's all anybody'd be talking about today, because this throws this thing 180 degrees out of phase.  So now Trayvon Martin, who is the recipient of full-fledged, 100% victim status? It turns out could well be a gay basher, and the left has been defending him.  So what do they do?  They have two interest groups here that they represent and champion: African-Americans and homosexuals, and in this incident, the object of their affection (in this case, Trayvon Martin), might have thought he was being pursued by a gay guy and beat him up, or tried to.

I figured they'd be very conflicted today.

But that hasn't come up anywhere.

Now I think I understand why.  It's precisely because nobody wants to get near it.  Nobody wants to get anywhere near this.  Those words of Rachel's are gone, into the ether, never to be remembered until the EIB Network kicked off at noon.  Now, one sound bite here before we go to the Obscene Profit Break.  This morning on CNN's Newsroom, the anchorette, Carol Costello, is speaking with criminal defense attorney Mark NeJame about Martin's friend Rachel Jeantel's appearance on Piers Morgan Live.

This is one of the well-educated, pseudo-intellectual analysts that CNN offered today talking about how wonderful Jeantel is, and they were just filled with sadness that she had not appeared this way on the stand.  So Carol Costello said to Mark NeJame, "If the jurors had seen the Rachel Jeantel that was on Piers Morgan last night," explaining the definition of "cracka," explaining the definition of "n-i-g-g-a," the "creepy ass cracka," and all that. "If the jurors had seen the Rachel Jeantel that was on Piers Morgan last night, instead of the Rachel Jeantel at trial, could it have made a difference?"

NEJAME: It coulda made a difference.  This is just another failure on behalf of the state to properly represent Trayvon Martin.  That woman last night was a sweet, funny, engaging person.  That's anything but what people saw when she took the stand.  People need to understand that we do have a cultural divide, and in fact what the jurors saw, uh, when she appeared on the stand was because of her, in my opinion, her lack of preparedness by the state attorney who prosecuted this case!  That woman last night, if she had been on the stand, and the juror (sic) would have seen that, they would have come away with a completely different impression, in my opinion, about who Trayvon really was.

RUSH:  Yeah?

I'm gonna tell you something, Mark.

If you had really been listening to what Rachel Jeantel said on Piers Morgan, you would be reexamining the entire way you're looking at this event.

Church Sign Generates Emotional Debate Over Race After Zimmerman Verdict

(http://cbschicago.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/first_baptist_church_university_park.png?w=420&h=312)

A sign posted outside a south suburban church is generating a powerful debate over race in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict.
 
The marquee outside the First Baptist Church of University Park earlier this week read: “It Is Safe To Kill Black People In Amerikkka.”
 
On Saturday, a jury of six women in Florida acquitted Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
 
Several comments on the church’s Facebook page took issue with the reference to the Ku Klux Klan in the word Amerikkka, with many saying the church’s sign is hateful and divisive and implies that all white Americans are racist.

The church responded by saying: “The message on the sign is not a message of hate. It is a message of awakening and call to action. It is a message not intended to divide, but to cause honest reflection in order to make this country a better place for ALL.”
 
The wording has historical precedence, according to the church’s Facebook page.
 
After the shooting of a black man by a white man in Montgomery, Ala., in 1949, Rev. Vernon Johns posted a sign outside the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church that read: “It Is Safe To Kill Negroes In Montgomery.”
 
The church has since changed the wording into a question: “Is It Safe To Kill Black People In America?”
 
“The initial sign, which has caused such a furor, stated, “It is safe to kill Black People in the United States of Amerikkka.” Much focus was placed on the intentional misspelling of America,” the church responded on its Facebook page.

“The use of “kkk”, was done to call attention to the fact that, just as in the ‘glory days of the KKK, it appears far too often that the murder of African Americans is permitted, and the mistreatment of African Americans historically and currently is far too cavalierly considered.”

Irate Ivy League professor calls God ‘a white racist god’ after Zimmerman verdict

In light of a Florida jury verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty, a professor at an Ivy League university has now concluded that God is “a white racist god with a problem” who “is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.”

The fulmination is part of an epic blog rant by Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania and a frequent guest at media outlets including MSNBC and CNN.

In the diatribe, Butler cites a book she first read as a seminary student called Is God a White Racist? by William R. Jones. She found the book surprising then, but says she understands it now, particularly as she contemplates the death of Trayvon Martin, who died on February 26, 2012.

Florida governor holds emergency meeting with anti-Zimmerman protesters

Florida Gov. Rick Scott held an emergency meeting Thursday night with pro-Trayvon Martin protesters that staged a sit-in outside his office to demand an end to Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law.

Scott, who has been under fire from activists in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in Martin’s death, met with protesters at the State Capitol and reminded them that he agrees with Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, but that he’s calling for a “statewide day of prayer for unity” to help people of all persuasions move beyond the verdict.

More than 100 protesters from the group Dream Defenders, which previously coordinated with a unit of the Obama administration’s Justice Department, descended upon the Florida state capitol Wednesday demanding to meet with Governor Scott to request that a special legislative session be held to repeal the state’s Stand Your Ground law, which Scott supports. Scott, who is facing tough re-election odds in 2014, initially showed no sign of desiring a meeting with protesters, but eventually caved in at 9 pm ET Thursday night, at the end of Day 2 of the protesters’ sit-in in the lobby of Scott’s office.

“I asked to meet with the protestors this evening to personally hear their concerns following the jury’s verdict in the Zimmerman case. I expressed my own sympathies for the Martin family and all those affected by Trayvon’s death. Earlier this evening, I also spoke to Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother, to again give my condolences on the loss of her son and let her know that she and her family remain in our thoughts and prayers,” Scott said in a statement provided to The Daily Caller.

“Tonight, the protestors again asked that I call a special session of the Legislature to repeal Florida’s Stand Your Ground law. I told them that I agree with the Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection, which concurred with the law. I also reminded them of their right to share their views with their state legislators and let them know their opinions on the law,” Scott said.

“I also told them that I plan to call for a Statewide Day of Prayer for Unity in Florida this Sunday, July 21st. We have a great state with wonderful, resilient people that rise to meet any challenge. While emotions run high, it is even more important that we join together to strengthen and support one another,” Scott said in his statement.

Stand Your Ground questions have whipped the governor into a veritable panic — evidenced by his reaction to a reporter’s inquiry during an unrelated Thursday afternoon press conference in Tampa.

“Scott responded that he did not support getting rid of the law, but before he could elaborate, he was rushed out by his media relations team,” Central Florida News 13 reported Thursday afternoon. “No follow-up questions were allowed.”

Gov. Rick Scott: No ‘Stand Your Ground’ law special session

Florida Gov. Rick Scott met with protesters who have been camping out in the state Capitol on Thursday night, but he said he will not call a special session to change Stand Your Ground laws in the state.
 
The group of young people and students, called the Dream Defenders, entered their fourth day of their campout on Friday, calling for a special session in the wake of the death of Trayvon Martin.

After meeting with six of the representatives, Scott released a statement saying he had spoken that evening with Martin’s mother and called for a statewide day of prayer on Sunday. But he did not agree to a special session.
 
“Tonight, the protesters again asked that I call a special session of the Legislature to repeal Florida’s Stand Your Ground law. I told them that I agree with the Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection, which concurred with the law. I also reminded them of their right to share their views with their state legislators and let them know their opinions on the law,” Scott said in his statement.

Iran’s Mullahs Demand Justice for Trayvon

Iran’s Foreign Ministry criticizes acquittal of George Zimmerman


morons, bet they think he is an Israeli Jew  ::)

Iran’s foreign ministry on Friday criticized the acquittal of George Zimmerman and chastised the United States for widespread “racial discrimination.”
 
“The acquittal of the murderer of the teenage African American once again clearly demonstrated the unwritten, but systematic racial discrimination against racial, religious, and ethnic minorities in the US society,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi was quoted as saying by Iran’s state run Fars News Agency.
 
“The court ruling has also seriously put under question the fairness of the judicial process in the United States,” Fars reported Araqchi as saying.
 
Iranian officials said that Zimmerman’s trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin should have been conducted in a more “accurate and fair” manner.
 
“Several months on since a probe was launched [into the murder], the public opinion in the U.S. and across the world expect transparency, an accurate and fair judicial investigation into the case, with due regard to human rights principles for American citizens and a ban on discrimination against minorities in the country,” Araqchi said.
 
Fars reported that the Iranian “public views the court ruling as a follow-up to similar incidents such as the suspicious murder of the grandson of former African American Muslim leader Malcolm X, which the U.S. judicial system failed to probe,” according to the report.
 
Iran’s calls for justice came as a surprise to U.S. observers, who pointed out that the Iranian regime is notorious for beating opposition members, arresting journalists, stoning women to death, and publicly executing homosexual teenagers.
 
An Iranian woman, for instance, was ordered to be stoned to death in July 2010.
 
The regime also initiated a widespread crackdown on opposition forces in the lead up to its most recent elections, which international observers cited for being neither free nor fair.
 
Political prisoners in Iran have even attempted to commit suicide as a result of their abusive treatment.
 
Religious minorities, such as Christians and Jews, also have been arrested or worse.
 
As an Islamic state that operates under strict Sharia law, Iran has been known to engage in the cruel punishment of criminals.
 
Some have had arms or legs amputated for petty crimes, while other have been stoned to death.
 
Iran also leads the world in child executions, according to Amnesty International, which published a report entitled, “Iran: The Last Executioner of Children.”
 
Iran has also arrested children and imprisoned them until they turn 18, at which point them are killed, according to Amnesty. Iran killed eight children in 2005.
 
Former Pentagon adviser Michael Rubin called Iran’s criticism of the Zimmerman trial ridiculous.
 
“You’ve got to have some sympathy for the poor Foreign Ministry spokesman,” Runin said. “This is probably the first time he had to wait for a verdict before writing his statement which is why it took him almost a week to issue it.”
 
“Now that the Zimmerman verdict condemnation is out of the way, though, maybe [Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister] Seyed Abbas Araqchi can start penning his condemnations of all the verdicts issued by Iranian kangaroo courts for such troubling crimes as free speech, free association, and free practice of religion,” Rubin said.

The Charlie Daniels Band Aftermath - Soapbox 07/19/13 .

 The Charlie Daniels Band
 Aftermath - Soapbox 07/19/13
 
The Trayvon Martin killing was a tragedy that, as far as I'm concerned, never should have happened. It was a classic case of really bad judgment on the part of both the involved individuals, with Zimmerman following Trayvon when he shouldn't have and Martin attacking Zimmerman when he shouldn't have and both men responsible for painting themselves into one of those tight corners where somebody has to be hurt.
 
But the case, as tragic as it was, was made many times worse by an irresponsible media and civil rights leaders who exploited it for whatever ink and TV face time they could get out of it.
 
In the time that the Zimmerman trial was going on there were sixty-one murders in Chicago, forty-three of them were black males and seven of those black males were under the age of 18, most of them died from gunshot wounds, all violent, all senseless. Do Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson just not care as much about the black male population of Chicago or is it that they just can't garner as much media attention there?
 
Speaking of media attention, a young white couple, students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, was carjacked, raped, tortured and murdered.
 
The young man, Christopher Newsome, was raped and beaten, then castrated, shot, his body dumped by train tracks and set on fire while his girlfriend, Channon Christian, was forced to watch.
 
Channon was gang raped over a period of days, her breasts cut off while she was still alive, then had cleaning fluid sprayed in her mouth in an attempt to erase the traces of DNA and her body put into a garbage receptacle.
 
Maybe you're wondering why you haven't heard about this inhuman crime, perhaps you think your local paper didn’t had time to cover it yet.
 
I seriously doubt that, since the crime took place in August of 2006, and of your local news outlets, most probably never covered it. I live about 150 miles from where it took place and, to the everlasting shame of networks and the local news media I didn't hear about it either until somebody brought my attention to it on the internet.

How could a crime this heinous, this inhuman, this completely evil escape the notice of the mass media and the talking heads who are always screaming for equal justice under the law?
 
Simple, it doesn't fit their agenda, the perpetrators were all black, all five of them. If this wasn't a case of blatant racism, I truly don't know what is. Do you honestly believe there wasn't racial bias involved in the choosing of the victims and the malicious violence that was done to them, and yet this story, one of the most hideous murders of the decade, was not covered by the media and was completely ignored by the so called civil rights leaders of all colors.
 
A dangerous precedent has been set by Eric Holder's Justice Department and aided and abetted by the mainstream American media, selective prosecution and selective journalism all calculated to push a political agenda that drives the races in this nation farther apart every day.
 
No good will come from Al Sharpton calling for demonstrations around the nation, already a group of blacks have beaten a random Hispanic citizen claiming, "This is for Trayvon".
 
What's the difference in this and what the KKK was doing a few short decades ago. Is this what Sharpton and his ilk want to see happen, anarchy in the name of prejudice? Isn’t that very thing what he's supposed to be fighting against?
 
America cannot continue down this path and remain the land of the free and the home of the brave where all men are equal under the law.
 
America desperately needs a president who is a uniter, not a divider, a Justice Department that actually wants to enforce the law equally, regardless of color or race, a Congress and Senate who could reclaim their testicles and a media which reports the news instead of trying to make it.
 
Blind hate is blind hate no matter what color it comes in.
 
I will not be a part of it.
 
What do you think?
 
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.
 
God Bless America

Zimmerman’s brother responds: Obama’s statement reinforced ‘mythology surrounding the case’

Robert Zimmerman Jr., the brother of George Zimmerman, responded quickly Friday after President Obama’s surprise statement about the Trayvon Martin case.
 
“The president is reinforcing much of the mythology surrounding the case,” Zimmerman told The Daily Caller via phone immediately following the President’s afternoon statement.
 
While he disagreed with Obama’s characterization of some of the facts of the case, he agreed that much work needs to be done to improve the lot of black youth across the country.


President Obama said in the press conference, “When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.”
 
The President said that the nation must address the problems faced by young black males.
 
“We need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African-American boys,” he said, adding that he and First Lady Michelle Obama often discuss the issue.
 
Zimmerman Jr. told TheDC that his brother was doing exactly what the president suggested well before he encountered Trayvon Martin in February 2012.
 
“George is a Hispanic man who was mentoring two African American children before the incident,” Zimmerman recalled. He told The DC that the father of those children is serving a life sentence in prison. “It goes without saying that African Americans are overrepresented in the criminal justice system, and I think George was trying to break that cycle.”

“I can’t think of a better way to encourage children than to take the time to show them that they matter as people and, more importantly to society at large,” than engaging in mentoring roles, said Zimmerman Jr.
 
The President acknowledged that Florida’s Stand Your Ground law did not necessarily apply in the Zimmerman case, but he addressed Stand Your Ground laws in his unscripted remarks.
 
“And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws, I just ask people to consider, if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?”
 
Zimmerman Jr. told TheDC that “the scenario [the President] laid out was ambiguous.”
 
Florida governor Rick Scott, a Republican, held a prayer vigil on Thursday with a group called the Dream Defenders. That group hopes to get Stand Your Ground repealed, but Scott has said that he has no plans to repeal the law.

Civil rights advocates — including Trayvon Martin's parents and brother — will attend vigils Saturday calling on the Justice Department to ramp up its investigation into the George Zimmerman case.

The gatherings at federal courts and government centers in about 100 cities from New York to Los Angeles were organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton, head of the National Action Network and host of an MSNBC show, after Zimmerman's acquittal on state charges last weekend.

Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder by a Florida jury on Saturday night. The Justice Department says it has an "open investigation" into the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting, but Sharpton has called for a more "aggressive" probe into whether Zimmerman violated Martin's civil rights.

McCain joins Obama in calling for review of 'Stand Your Ground' laws
who isnt surprised at that one?  ::)


A top Republican joined President Barack Obama's call to review so-called "Stand Your Ground" laws in the aftermath of the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the 2012 shooting of black teen Trayvon Martin.

Sen. John McCain, Ariz., a prominent Republican who's been known to break ranks with fellow members of the GOP at times, urged state legislatures to review Stand Your Ground laws in the wake of the Zimmerman trial, which became a national flashpoint for race relations in America.

"I can also see that Stand Your Ground laws may be something that needs to be reviewed by the Florida legislature or any other legislature that has passed such legislation," McCain said on CNN.

Asked whether his home state legislature should consider revising its own similar law, McCain said yes.

"I think that, yes, I do, and I'm confident that the members of the Arizona legislature will because it is a very controversial legislation," he said.

Stand Your Ground laws refer to a legal doctrine in some states where an individual is permitted to use force in the name of self-defense without having to necessarily try to retreat from a confrontation. Though Zimmerman did not cite the theory in his successful defense against murder charges in the Martin shooting, Stand Your Ground laws have come under scrutiny because of concerns that these laws might give rise to similar violent confrontations.

In extended and personal remarks about the Zimmerman trial and race, Obama on Friday joined the chorus of political leaders suggesting a review of Stand Your Ground laws is in order.

"And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these 'Stand Your Ground' laws, I'd just ask people to consider, if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?" Obama asked. "And if the answer to that question is at least ambiguous, then it seems to me that we might want to examine those kinds of laws."

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Obama for those comments during a speech this weekend in Iowa, a traditional stomping ground for candidates eyeing their own future bid for the presidency.

“It is not surprising that the president uses, it seems, every opportunity that he can to go after our Second Amendment right to bear arms," Cruz said Friday, according to an account by CNN.

McCain on Sunday chided Cruz — a senator with whom he has sometimes clashed — suggesting that he didn't share the Texas senator's suspicions.

"Isn't this time for us to try to come together? Isn't it time for America to come together in light of several weeks of what is really exacerbating relations between elements of our society? I'd rather have a message of coming together and discussing these issues rather than condemning," McCain said. " I just respect his view, but I don't frankly see the connection."

Obama's comments about Stand Your Ground and race continued to reverberate on Sunday, as African American leaders pondered the significance of the president's surprise remarks on Friday.

Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said on NBC's Meet the Press that she was "very proud" of the president's remarks.

But she also said that black Americans are "being attacked from so many sides" in politics, citing cuts to food stamp programs passed recently by the GOP-held House of Representatives, or the Supreme Court's recent decision gutting parts of the landmark Voting Rights Act.

"I don't care how many laws you put on the table," she said. "You cannot legislate against prejudice or bias or racism."

Obama's remarks about race didn't satisfy everybody, though. Pundit Tavis Smiley argued that Obama had essentially been pushed into delivering remarks about the Trayvon Martin case, and should have been more active in speaking about race after the Zimmerman verdict.

"This is not Libya; this is America," said Smiley on Meet the Press. "On this issue, you cannot lead from behind."

McCain: Obama's Trayvon Comments 'Very Impressive'

(http://cdn.breitbart.com/mediaserver/Breitbart/Big-Government/2013/07/21/McCainObama.jpg)

On Sunday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) appeared on CNN’s State of the Union, where he called President Obama’s Friday comments on Trayvon Martin and race “very impressive.” He said, “I think we should continue to make progress,” but added that “we still have a long way to go,” even as he declined to “second guess” the verdict in the George Zimmerman case.

McCain stated that “we were probably too optimistic” about race relations in the aftermath of the election of the country’s first black president. “I think old prejudices die hard,” McCain said. ‘We have made significant progress, but I think recent events highlight the differences that remain.” McCain also said he believed that “Stand Your Ground” laws should be reconsidered in light of the Martin case, despite the fact that “Stand Your Ground” was never invoked by Zimmerman and he was acquitted on grounds of self-defense.

David Brooks calls Obama’s race speech ‘one of the highlights of the presidency’

On Sunday’s broadcast of “Meet the Press” on NBC, New York Times columnist David Brooks gushed over President Barack Obama’s speech on race in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict a week earlier.

“It seemed superficially unimportant, but it’s important to remember race is his first subject, as it would be if you had a black father and a white mother,” Brooks said. “And all the mental habits, he breached all the other issues, grow out of the way he framed race and the way he started thinking about race — his tendency to do, ‘On the one hand, on the other,’ his desire to reconcile opposites, his ability to see different points of view. All the stuff we’ve come to see him apply to every other issue, it started with race.  And I thought this speech was one of the highlights of the presidency.”

Brooks said the speech had all the components one would expect for such an occasion.

“I thought it was a symphony of indignation, professionalism, executive responsibility, personal feeling,” Brooks said. “It had all these different things woven together, I thought beautifully.  But it’s important to remember, race is how he thinks.”

Republican Michael Steele Compares Trayvon Case to Sandy Hook

Both are examples where Obama should have led changes to the law, he said

7/21/13

Former RNC chair Michael Steele likened Sandy Hook to the Trayvon Martin case during a heated discussion on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday.

He likened the two as incidents that should have inspired legislative change, but didn't because Obama failed to lead. So while he didn't compare the two as events of the same magnitude, his comparison does suggests that the correct response to nationally-distressing crimes is to change the law.

Steele's comments arose in a discussion of Obama's Friday speech on the Trayvon case. Co-panelist Marc Morial said that Obama's comments should start the discussion that will lead to "serious action steps by the nation."

Steele responded that Obama hadn't acted quickly enough and has failed to lead on the Trayvon case as much as on Sandy Hook. He's used both incidents to call for political change, but he failed to do it effectively:

Quote
MICHAEL STEELE: But that's the key piece, the discussion that starts and ends quickly. I hearken back to the gun debate, and the president bootstrapped the gun argument with his initial comments the day of the jury verdict in a way that was disconnected. And if you look at the momentum behind that discussion, coming off of Sandy Hook, and the raw emotion from the American people saying, "We want something done here. Let's move on this."

What happened? The discussion dissipated. Then this was something that the president came out again and heralded, but then let the steam fall out of it.

Lawmakers on the Black Congressional are drafting a bill to address racial profiling and overturn Stand Your Ground laws in states. But as with the post-Newtown background check bill, their legislation is unlikely to become law.

George Zimmerman Emerged From Hiding for Truck Crash Rescue
By MATT GUTMAN and ALEXIS SHAW | Good Morning America – 7/22/13

George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today.

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of a family of four -- two parents and two children -- trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.

By the time police arrived, two people - including Zimmerman - had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff's office said. No one was reported to be injured.

Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said.

It's the first known sighting of Zimmerman since he left the courtroom following his acquittal last week on murder charges for the death of Martin. Zimmerman, 29, shot and killed Martin, 17, in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, 2012. The jury determined that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense.

The acquittal prompted dozens of protests across the country this past weekend and his lawyers have said that Zimmerman has been the subject of death threats. His lawyers said Zimmerman has been wearing a bullet-proof vest when he ventures out in public.

Zimmerman's parents told ABC News' Barbara Walters they too have received death threats and have been unable to return to their home.

"We have had an enormous amount of death threats. George's legal counsel has had death threats, the police chief of Sanford, many people have had death threats," Zimmerman's father, Robert Zimmerman said."'Everyone with Georgie's DNA should be killed' -- just every kind of horrible thing you can imagine."

An indication of the animosity toward Zimmerman is the number of threatening phone calls being received by a woman in Winter Park, Fla.

Lori Tankel told ABCNews.com that someone had incorrectly posted her cell phone number online thinking it was Zimmerman's. She said she started receiving threatening calls within an hour after the jury had reached a verdict on July 13.

"They were saying things like, 'Zimmerman? Is this George? We're going to get you, we're going to kill you,'" she said.

Her cell phone number is only one digit off from Zimmerman's, she said.

Tankel said she received at least 80 phone calls within one day of the jury's not guilty verdict. While the threats died down during the week, she said they ramped right back up again on Friday and continued through the weekend.

"Those phone calls were extremely malicious," she said. "I think at that point, they kind of knew it wasn't George Zimmerman's number, but they were still going to harass me."

Tankel said she initially reported the threatening calls to the the Seminole County Sheriff's Office, but was told to follow up with law enforcement in Orange County, Fla., where she lives, to file a report, she said.

But Tankel she said she won't be changing her number anytime soon.

"I'm a sales representative for several different horse-related companies, and I have five states in my territory," she said. "To change business cards and contact everybody, it's not that simple."

Al, Jessie, NBC?? Any one car to make a national uproar??

Teen indicted in Ga. baby slaying and 2nd shooting

A Georgia teenager shot a 13-month-old baby in the face while trying to rob the child's mother, according to an indictment returned Wednesday that also charged the suspect with shooting another person in an unrelated robbery attempt earlier this month.

The indictment by a Glynn County grand jury charges 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins on nine counts, including malice murder, in the slaying last Thursday of young Antonio Santiago a few blocks from his home in coastal Brunswick.

Another suspect, a 15-year-old, was indicted on seven counts including felony murder. But the indictment specifies that authorities believe it was Elkins who shot the child and wounded his mother with a .22-caliber revolver as the boys tried to steal money from her.

District Attorney Jackie Johnson of the Brunswick Judicial Circuit said in a statement Thursday she would not seek the death penalty against either suspect because Georgia law doesn't allow capital punishment for defendants charged with crimes committed before they were 18. Both teens are charged as adults.

Elkins was also indicted on two counts in a second attempted robbery and shooting that happened 10 days before the baby was slain. On March 11, according to the indictment, Elkins tried to rob a person identified as Wilfredo Calix-Flores, pointing a gun at him while demanding his cellphone and wallet. Elkins shot Calix-Flores in the arm with the same caliber revolver used to kill the baby 10 days later, the indictment says. He is charged with attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

Kevin Gough, a public defender representing Elkins, said he felt prosecutors rushed to indict his client before collecting all available evidence. Gough had asked a judge for a preliminary hearing next week to determine if prosecutors had sufficient evidence to charge Elkins. The indictment means a grand jury has already made that determination and Elkins' attorneys won't get an early look at the evidence against him.

"It's a major setback in the sense we would like to have an opportunity to test the strength of the evidence against our client," Gough said.

Kimberly L. Copeland, an attorney for the 15-year-old suspect, said she planned a vigorous defense but had no further comment.

"I believe in the innocence of my client," Copeland said.

The few details contained in the indictment seem to back up the story the slain baby's mother, Sherry West, has repeated to numerous reporters: She was pushing her baby in a stroller as she walked home from the post office when two youths approached asking for money. West says when she refused, the older teen drew a gun and shot her in the leg before shooting her son in the head.

Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering told reporters Wednesday before the indictment was returned that investigators believe the crime was random — something police hadn't said previously.

"We're comfortable now, six days into it, to say the location of the incident and the victim were random," Doering said. "I don't have any information that shows otherwise."

The grand jury also indicted three of Elkins' relatives on charges that they tried to help him after the shootings.

The suspect's mother, Karimah Elkins, and older sister, Sabrina Elkins, were charged with evidence tampering. The indictment says they threw the revolver that police suspect was used in the shooting into a saltwater pond where investigators recovered it Tuesday. Doering said the gun is being tested to see if it can be linked to the child's slaying.

Karimah Elkins and the suspect's aunt, Katrina Elkins, were also charged with making false statements to police. The indictment says the aunt told investigators her nephew was at her house when the slaying occurred — which she also told The Associated Press and other news outlets. It says the suspect's mother told police that her son was with her when the baby was shot.

Elkins' public defender has said he strongly believes his client is innocent. Gough has filed a court motion asking a judge to grant him access to mental health records of the slain boy's mother, saying they could be important to determining whether she's a credible witness.

"Obviously we're concerned about her credibility her ability to accurately recall events and identify anybody," Gough said. "If she suffers from any conditions that would do that, it would certainly be relevant to the case."

Family Rescued by George Zimmerman Backs Out of News Conference
7/24/13

The family rescued by George Zimmerman when they were trapped in an overturned SUV canceled a scheduled news conference today and is pleading for privacy.

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of Dana and Mark Gerstle and their two children, who were trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla., about 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The Gerstles were expected to hold a press conference today at the office of Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara, but cancelled a few hours before it was supposed to take place.

"They have expressed to us that they are not comfortable doing media interviews at this time and they continue to ask for privacy," the Seminole City Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, said the family had asked to speak, but then got concerned about the anger surrounding the controversial verdict.

"The family called because they wanted to address the media. I knew that if we did it in an organized way, it would help them get back to a normal life.. But they called today and said they were more worried about blow back from saying anything that would be favorable to George, and decided they did not want to do any media," Zimmerman said.

The family could not be reached for comment.

Zimmerman has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin and his acquittal prompted a flood of negative reactions and dozens of protests across the country. Zimmerman as well as his parents have received death threats.

The Thursday crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said, less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.

By the time police arrived, two people - including Zimmerman - had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff's office said. No one was reported to be injured.

Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said.

Mistaken identity brings threats to Pastor Zimmermann

George A. Zimmermann, a retired pastor in Florida, has received death threats meant for the man acquitted in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin

Death threats were the last type of phone calls George A. Zimmermann, 78, thought he'd get after serving for 55 years as his Pennsylvania community's preacher.

And he never thought he'd be mistaken for the man headlining news these days: George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Fla., neighborhood watch volunteer acquitted in the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin in February 2012.

Zimmermann, 78, retired to Deland, Fla., 16 years ago from his post at Georgetown United Methodist Church in Paradise, Pa. He says his time in Florida had been relatively peaceful and uneventful – until the phone calls began trickling in.

According to Zimmermann, he started receiving the calls immediately after Zimmerman (with one n), 29, shot the teenager.

"In the beginning, I received four or five calls," Zimmermann says. "I'd say, 'Hey, you got the wrong person. I don't live in Sanford.' And then it stopped."

Until the first night of the trial.

On June 25, Zimmermann was awakened by two calls in the middle of the night from protesters, although he says they were tame in comparison with the one he received July 14, a day after the verdict was reached.

"Hey (expletive), you're the one who killed Trayvon Martin, when your (expletive) get out, you're dead," the caller said in a message left on the answering machine. "Wherever you go, you're dead. Wherever you're trying to hide, you're dead. Watch your (expletive) move. You think you're free. You're not. You better get ready to dig a 6-foot hole, cause you know you're fixing to go," according to a report by Daytona news station WFVT.

Zimmermann, who was not home at the time of the call, recorded the message on his answering machine. He reported the incident to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

"I know they're venting their emotions, but I had no idea that my name would create such a hassle," he says.

Zimmermann says a couple of the calls he's received have been from out-of-state numbers, but more have been from Florida. He has changed his phone number, and since July 14, he has not received any more intimidating calls.

"They're just shooting in the dark," Zimmermann says. "It doesn' t make sense – I'm in a different town.

"But I guess when you're upset you do things without rationally thinking about it," he said.

Since Trayvon was killed, a number of individuals with unintentional ties to Zimmerman have been accosted in similar cases of mistaken identity:

• A Florida man who had never owned a cellphone before being released from prison in May 2012 was randomly assigned the number Zimmerman was using when he called 911 the night he killed Trayvon. Junior Alexander Guy, then 49, received multiple intimidating phone calls before changing his number.

• Lori Tankel of Winter Park, Fla., was forced to change her number after receiving nearly 100 calls from protesters assuming she was Zimmerman, reports Florida news station WFTV. Her cellphone number was one digit removed from Zimmerman's old number.

• Although he lived thousands of miles away from Sanford, Jorge Zimmerman of Cumberland, R.I., received nearly half a dozen or so angry messages sent to his Facebook page from individuals accusing him of murdering Trayvon, says Rhode Island news station WPRI. He has deactivated his Facebook account.

Here’s something you certainly won’t hear about in the mainstream media despite the 24/7 coverage of the Trayvon Martin case which may generate riots: Trayvon Martin’s dad is a ‘Grand Master’ Freemason. More to come on what this means and the occult history of Freemasonry, but for now here is this fact displayed in video form using images that I’ve compiled through user tips and investigation.

George Zimmerman Juror Says He 'Got Away With Murder'
http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimmerman-juror-murder/story?id=19770659
7/25/13

The only minority on the all-female jury that voted to acquit George Zimmerman said today that Zimmerman "got away with murder" for killing Trayvon Martin and feels she owes an apology Martin's parents.

"You can't put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty," said the woman who was identified only as Juror B29 during the trial. "But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence."

She said the jury was following Florida law and the evidence, she said, did not prove murder.

Black man in hoodie stabs white girl 11 times
'She came home from work, and her body was full of holes'


Police in New York City are trying to find a black man wearing a hoodie who is responsible for a horrific attack on a teenage white girl who was stabbed 11 times just steps from her front door.

The knife-wielding maniac ambushed Natasha Martinez, 17, as she returned home from working her shift at a local McDonald’s restaurant.

Hearing her daughter’s screams, Natasha’s mother, Wendy Martinez, came running outside — and the bloodthirsty attacker fled.

“She came home from work, and her body was full of holes,” Wendy Martinez told the New York Daily News.

“I was holding her because she was going to fall. Her face was turning white, and I slapped her. I was telling her, ‘You have to stay alive.’”

The teen is recovering at Jamaica Hospital, in the borough of Queens, after undergoing surgery for stab wounds to her back, arms, stomach and kidney. Doctors had to remove a vein from her leg and put it in her arm. Her mother describes her condition as “really bad.”

“This is so difficult,” said Natasha’s mom. “You raise your child, take care of them since they were a baby, and then something like this happens.”

Several neighbors said they heard Natasha’s screams the night of the attack.

“I think she was screaming help or something,” witness Christopher Lopez told WCBS-TV.

“Then all of a sudden, I heard the screams get louder and I said, ‘Let me take a look,’” said witness Teddy Betancourt, “and it was the girl’s mother, holding her up, screaming — looked like she passed out.”

Many in the neighborhood were unaware of the attack until police knocked on their doors.

“It’s not a violent environment,” neighbor Edwin Martinez told the TV station. “You know, people don’t get stabbed and shot here. It’s a nice neighborhood.”
Cops are still looking for the assailant. They recovered a bloody kitchen knife with a 6-inch blade in the building’s vestibule.

“We don’t have an arrest, and we don’t have a motive at this juncture,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

Kelly said investigators were also looking at video from Monday to see if the suspect may have started following Martinez from McDonald’s or a nearby sandwich shop where she stopped to eat before heading home.

Kelly told WNBC-TV police are also looking into the possibility the attack is connected to another mysterious stabbing of a woman in front of her home in Queens in June.

A 36-year-old woman on her way to work early in the morning was stabbed seven times.

A man wearing a hooded sweatshirt was seen running from the scene in that attack. Police released surveillance video of the possible hoodie-wearing suspect in the attack on Martinez.

The victims in both cases survived with critical injuries.

“We’re looking at similarities between this and an event that happened in Queens, Kelly told the TV station. “We’re seeing if it’s a pattern here.”

Charlie Rangel: Tea Party Is ‘Same Group’ Of ‘White Crackers’ Who Fought Civil Rights

In an interview with the Daily Beast published Friday, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested Tea Partiers are the "same group" who fought for segregation during the Civil Rights movement.

“It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked," Rangel said.
 
Because of this, Rangel said the Tea Party could be defeated using the same tactics employed against Jim Crow.
 
"It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough. ‘I don’t want to see it and I am not a part of it.’ What the hell! If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break,” said Rangel.

Report: Cooper had been contacted about video before it was released

Posted by Mike Florio on August 4, 2013, 10:07 AM EDT

Although Eagles receiver Riley Cooper has done a fairly admirable job of falling repeatedly on his sword regarding one of the NFL’s most unlikely off-field incidents, there’s one specific wrinkle in this story that makes us wonder whether he’s simply saying what he thinks he needs to say in order to make it all go away.

“The last few days have been incredibly difficult for me,” Cooper said in the Friday statement regarding his temporary (or possibly longer) departure from the team.  “My actions were inexcusable. The more I think about what I did, the more disgusted I get.”

That last sentence is the one that caught our eye.  Cooper didn’t utter a racial slur in a public place on Wednesday, when the video surfaced.  He said it on June 9.

Unless he was so drunk that he doesn’t remember saying it, how does the disgust not begin to grow until July 31, when the video became public?


Cooper supposedly learned of the video “a couple hours” before addressing it with reporters the day it surfaced.  According to CrossingBroad.com, the site that purchased the video for only $150, Cooper previously had been made aware of the video via Twitter.  Per the report, people “tweeted at” Cooper 10-to-15 times about the video since the middle of June; Cooper reportedly blocked two of the people who were sending Twitter messages to him about the video.

Regardless of whether the folks who had the video were trying to extort money from Cooper (like the guy who ended up getting 18 months in prison last year after pleading guilty to extorting Robert Griffin III), it’s hard to completely reconcile the tone and content of comments made by Cooper after the video surfaced with the notion that he knew about the video before it was released.  Given that Cooper’s perceived sincerity will be a key factor in whether the locker room can move forward, that could be a subtle yet important point for one or more of his teammates.

And if Cooper had a chance to buy the video before it was released, maybe he should have.  After the Griffin incident occurred last year, a league source told PFT that extortion attempts happen “[m]ore often than you realize.”  In many cases, the player who is being extorted pays the money and moves on.

If the video netted only $150 from CrossingBroad.com, Cooper likely could have had it for not much more than that.  Given everything that has happened since the video surfaced, it could have been the best investment Cooper ever made.

Civil rights activists remain silent on Florida school bus beating video

A viral video showing the beating of a 13-year-old white boy by three African-American youths in Florida has left hundreds of thousands of viewers horrified, but critics say the case doesn't seem to be attracting much sympathy from self-styled civil rights activists.
 
In the chilling video, three 15-year-old boys repeatedly beat and kick a victim police said was left with a broken arm and two black eyes.
 
Although Florida came under fire in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting and George Zimmerman's acquittal by activists Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson - who called it an "apartheid state" - neither has spoken publicly about the bus incident. But one reason the case has not become as racially charged as other attacks may be that many news outlets have either not shown the first few seconds, before the victim goes down behind a seat, and others blur out his face to the point his race is no longer apparent.
 
The bus driver, 64-year-old John Moody, can be heard frantically calling a radio dispatcher for help, although he was criticized in some quarters for not physically intervening.
 
"No, you've got to get somebody here quick, quick, quick," Moody pleads on his phone as the assailants take turns landing windmill punches and vicious kicks on the cowering victim. "They about to beat this boy to death over here."
 



"They about to beat this boy to death over here."
 
- Florida bus driver John Moody
 

The attack took place July 9 in the St. Petersburg-area community of Gulfport. But the horrific cell phone and surveillance video only came out only recently. Police say the three youths, all African-American, attacked the boy after he told officials at their dropout prevention school that one of them had tried to sell him marijuana.
 
Most of the focus has so far been on Moody, who retired two weeks after the incident. Moody went on CNN earlier this week to defend himself.
 
"Me jumping in the middle of that fight with three boys, it would have been more dangerous for other students on the bus for as myself," he told Morgan. "There's just no telling what might have happened."
 
Moody stopped the bus, and police said the suspects used the emergency exit of the bus to escape. Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight, and Lloyd Khemradj, all 15 years old, were arrested a short time later. All three were charged with aggravated battery and have since been released. Reddin is also charged with unarmed robbery.
 
Pinellas County school policy does not require a driver to intervene and prosecutors have said Moody will not face charges, but Gulfport Police Chief Robert Vincent told WFLA that Moody should have stepped in.
 
"There was clearly an opportunity for him to intervene and or check on the welfare of the children or the child in this case, and he didn't make any effort to do so," Vincent said.

Man in coma after black mob of 50 pummels him
 
'She saw them strip him of his pants and go through the pockets'


Al and Jessie probably high fived when they heard this one

St. Paul, Minn., man is in a coma today, fighting for his life after a black mob beat him, stripped his clothes off and left him for dead. Even if he recovers, he will have permanent brain damage.

Ray Widstrand thought he had nothing to fear from moving into a black neighborhood on the East Side of St. Paul. This young white guy and aspiring filmmaker thought he had nothing to fear when he decided to take a Sunday night stroll through his adopted part of town.
 
Nothing to fear from a crowd of 50 black people fighting outside a nearby party. So he stopped to check it out. Soon, however, the mob’s attention turned on him.
 
“The first person who struck him had hit him with a can in a sock,” said one witness in a police report. “The man went down and a ‘whole bunch of little eastside boys’ began to kick the man. She saw them strip him of his pants and go through the pockets.”
 
When police arrived, the black mob scattered, leaving only Ray behind.
 
“He had blood coming from his nose and mouth and was unresponsive,” said the police report. “As of August 8th, the prognosis for recovery is slight, and should he live, he will suffer permanent and protracted loss of brain function.”
 
Four black people have been arrested so far.

oooh, seems Oreily is taking racist and hate monger the Rev Shakedown artist Al Sharpton to task.  :D

Things Just Got Real Personal in Feud Between Bill O’Reilly and Al Sharpton

Bill O’Reilly took his feud with Al Sharpton to the next level on Thursday, alleging that the so-called civil rights leader came to him and asked for money to benefit his broke Harlem charity a few years ago, a request that O’Reilly was happy to grant. But that hasn’t prevented Sharpton from going on MSNBC and slamming the conservative TV host as anti-poor and even insinuating that he is a racist.
 
O’Reilly began on Thursday by claiming Sharpton lied about a report he did on food stamp fraud when he took his comments completely out of context. On his show Tuesday, Sharpton accused O’Reilly of attacking the poor after he did a report about a healthy man receiving food stamps so he can surf all day and not have to worry about employment.
 
“Sharpton, obviously taking my comments totally out of context, not even mentioning Jason the surfer and basically not telling the truth once again,” O’Reilly responded on Thursday.

He then dropped the “crusher” about Sharpton, who he says has been portraying him as a “racist and a brutalizer of the poor.”
 
“A few years ago, Sharpton told me that his charity in Harlem, N.Y., was out of money and that it could not provide Christmas presents and Christmas dinner to hundreds of poor people in Harlem,” O’Reilly explained. “So I gave Sharpton a $25,000 donation to prove the gifts and food.”
 
“I never mentioned it, because it wasn’t necessary to mention it. But now it is. To prove exactly what kind of person Sharpton is,” he added.

Title: DHS employee spends spare time promoting race war against 'whites'
Post by: McChristian on August 23, 2013, 03:07:44 pm
A Department of Homeland Security manager in charge of buying weapons and ammunition for the government is, on the side, running an inflammatory website that throws around gay slurs and advocates the mass murder of "whites" and the "ethnic cleansing" of "Uncle Tom race traitors," according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Ayo Kimathi, who calls himself the “Irritated Genie,” told his supervisors that the website was set up to sell concert and lecture videos.

But the report showed the site's content strayed far beyond concert promotion, warning about a coming race war. His website, “War on the Horizon,” declares, “in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our Christian hearts can possibly count,” the Alabama-based SPLC said in its report.

One of Kimathi’s former supervisors at DHS told SPLC’s Hatewatch that, “Everybody is the office is afraid of him,” and that his co-workers are “afraid he will come in with a gun and someday go postal.”

The supervisor, who was not named, continued, “I am astounded he’s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”
Kimathi, who works for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is a division of DHS, reportedly got the go-ahead from the government to create and maintain his website.

That’s because as a law enforcement agency employee, he is required to get permission in writing if he engages in outside activities which includes everything from working a second job to volunteering.

The SPLC says Kimathi obtained official permission but did it by misrepresenting the true nature of his site.

“He told management that it was an entertainment website selling videos of concerts and lectures,” the report said. “He called it simply WOH, never saying that WOH stood for War on the Horizon.”

ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said in a written statement that the agency “does not condone any type of hateful rhetoric or advocacy of violence of any kind against anyone.”

It is not known what disciplinary actions, if any, will be taken against Kimathi.

“Every ICE employee is held to the highest standard of professional and ethical conduct. Accusations of misconduct are investigated thoroughly and if substantiated, appropriate actions in taken," she said.

Kimathi's site even includes President Obama, who is technically his boss, on its own enemies list.

According to the WOH website, the organization was “created for the purpose of preparing black people worldwide for an unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race. Whites around the world are absolutely determined to exterminate Afrikan people in all corners of the earth."

The mission statement also claims to prepare blacks intellectually, spiritually, psychologically and physically for “a global clash that will mean the end of white rule on this planet or the end of the black race as we know it.”

Calls to WOH for comment by FoxNews.com were not immediately returned.

According to the WOH website, the organization was “created for the purpose of preparing black people worldwide for an unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race. Whites around the world are absolutely determined to exterminate Afrikan people in all corners of the earth."

The mission statement also claims to prepare blacks intellectually, spiritually, psychologically and physically for “a global clash that will mean the end of white rule on this planet or the end of the black race as we know it.”

Calls to WOH for comment by FoxNews.com were not immediately returned.

Title: The Media Driven Race War

Is the Media Covering Up the Beginnings of a Race War?

No national debate over spate of black on white crimes

Despite engaging in a seemingly endless and racially-charged national debate about the Trayvon Martin case, the US corporate media has shown no interest in reviving this obsession despite a spate of black on white murders, at least two of which indicate a racially-charged hate crime motivation behind the killings.

George Zimmerman’s acquittal last month drew a line under nearly 18 months of hand-wringing over the threat posed to black people by racially-charged hate crimes. Black ideologues like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others were constantly in the headlines holding up the Trayvon case as a dire warning that African-Americans could now be targeted for murder merely as a result of the color of their skin.

In light of several high profile black on white murders in recent days, the invective has been noticeably less verbose. The most anger Jesse Jackson could muster over the gang-initiation hate crime slaying of Australian student Chris Lane was a tepid tweet stating that the incident should be “frowned upon.”

Lane was slaughtered by a gunshot to the back as part of a gang initiation by three juveniles, an incident which the media initially tried to downplay as “bored teens.” Two of the suspects are black. It subsequently emerged that one of the suspects had posted racist tweets on his account before the murder, stating “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.” Another reads, “Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!.” “Woods” is a racist term for white people.

Barack Obama, who personally inserted himself into the Trayvon Martin case on two separate occasions, was “not familiar” with Lane’s murder, according to the White House.

Meanwhile, in Spokane Washington, 88-year-old World War Two veteran Delbert Belton, who survived being wounded during the Battle of Okinawa, did not survive a brutal beating carried out by two black teens outside a pool hall.

As one respondent to the story remarked, “If this had been 2 white kids beating up an old black dude, it’d be all over the national news by now.”

The story has received local attention but comparatively little national coverage, despite the Drudge Report prominently linking the story. Drudge has consistently highlighted the problem of black on white crime over the last few years and been attacked for doing so.

The national media has also largely ignored what could be the most shocking story out of all three – the apparent “Trayvon-revenge” killing of David Santucci in downtown Memphis by three African-Americans named Mario Patterson, Dondre Johnson and Jerrica Norfleet.

According to Santucci’s brother Miguel De Diago, police are covering up the fact that the murder was a racist hate crime and that Santucci was killed because he was white in revenge for George Zimmerman’s acquittal. Although authorities claim the murder was motivated by robbery, nothing was taken from Santucci, he still had his wallet, keys and cell phone on him after being shot dead.

These three murders all occurred within the last two weeks, but the press attention they have received in comparison to the Trayvon case has been virtually non-existent.

Trayvon Martin supporters have made the claim that these murders have not sparked a national debate because the culprits were arrested and charged, unlike George Zimmerman who was initially released.

However, this misses the point entirely. During Zimmerman’s trial, no racially-based motivation for the shooting was uncovered, yet a national debate about race ensued. In at least two of these cases, there are clear indications that two white men were indeed the victims of racist hate crime, yet the outrage has been comparatively muted.

Image: Murder suspects.

As Pat Buchanan highlights, “interracial violence is overwhelmingly black-on-white,” yet the national debate over the Trayvon Martin case would suggest the opposite. The media is deliberately avoiding difficult questions about why black culture encourages broken homes and criminal behavior in preference of manufacturing the myth that blacks are under some kind of endemic hate crime assault from whites.

In reality, crime statistics drawn from Justice Department and FBI figures show that “Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit violent crime against a white person than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.”

Facts cannot be labeled “racist”. The deliberate policy of the national media in hyping the idea that blacks face a growing hate crimes threat from whites – when it clearly appears that the opposite is true – means the genuine problem of black violence and how to address its root causes for the benefit of all Americans no matter what their skin color is being buried.

I think it's creating strive and hostility then literal war. I could seen that being the way forty years ago. But now I think it'll just make people think a savior needs to come to solve these racial problems. Though a savior already came, the one they reject, the one that paid for the sins on the cross.

I remember in my college Sociology class, my professor said how the reason racism still exists today, is b/c black and white children's parents alike are still teaching hostility toward the other races to their kids.

Pt being that even public schools are doing their part to subtlely spread this propaganda too. Seriously, either my professor is completely deluded, or he was making it up out of thin air b/c he was lecturing so much and had to say something.

And don't forget all of the entertainment stuff like the tv/movie and music industry that is doing their part too. The way they're pulling it off is very subtle.

‘I Don’t Know What to Think’ About White House’s Silence on Chris Lane Killing, Says Oklahoma Governor

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin said on Sunday she thinks it would be a “nice gesture” for President Obama to speak out about the tragic murder of Australian student Chris Lane.
 
“What do you make of the silence of people like Al Sharpton, and, quite frankly, the silence of the president?” Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, asked Fallin.
 
“I don’t know what to think about that,” Fallin replied. “It would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences.”
 
Wallace, pressed Fallin again, highlighting how the president vocally spoke out about the Trayvon Martin shooting.
 
“I think it would be a nice gesture for him to do that, especially since the country of Australia has expressed their sentiments,” Fallin responded.

At RNC event, speaker says African Americans have taken a back seat to gays, immigrants

The Republican National Committee commemorated the 50th anniversary of the March of Washington and Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech with a luncheon Monday.
 
The most rousing speech of the luncheon came from Bob Woodson, the head of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprises. Woodson criticized black leaders over Trayvon Martin, the black Florida teen who was shot to death by George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was acquitted in Martin’s death. Woodson, who is black, said groups including gays and immigrants have been prioritized over poor black people in American society.
 
“Everybody has come in front of them on the bus — gays, immigrants, women, environmentalists,” Woodson said. “You never hear any talk about the conditions confronting poor blacks and poor people in general.”

Woodson also criticized the “moral traitors” who mourned the death of Martin but not Chris Lane, the Australian baseball player who prosecutors allege was shot to death in Oklahoma by three boys, two whom are black.
 
Conservatives have strongly criticized black leaders like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for treating the cases of Martin and Hale differently.
 
Woodson said King would mourn for both equally.
 
“If Dr. King were alive today, he would not be just talking about justice for Trayvon Martin,” Woodson said. ”He would also give a prayer for this 18-year-old man, this little baby, who was shot in the face by two black kids.

“We should pray for the families of these people just as we do the family of Trayvon Martin. We should not wait for a white face before we get outraged. Evil is evil, whether it wears a white face or not.”
 
Recognizing that strong reaction to his words, Woodson didn’t back down.
 
“I’m sorry to be the skunk at the garden party, but I think if Dr. King were alive today, he would step on some of these sacred issues,” Woodson said.
 
At the end of his remarks, Woodson was greeted with a standing ovation.
 
Other speakers at the event include King’s niece, Alveda King, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.).

Oh really?  ::)

How about taking a look at your own community and tell me that African Americans are taking charge of their own community. Where are all those father's at? ALL these years whining for special attention and getting it, and yet the black community is as big a disaster as ever, and it sure isn't because they don't get public assistance!

How about complaining to your fellow black business executives, entertainers, and athletes. Seems they are doing financially just fine.

In less than a dozen rich blacks, the community could raise $1 billion in a second to assist with those poor black kids. Surely the rich African Americans would toss some cash to their own wouldn't they?

Yeah, right! Hasn't happened yet, has it?

You first need to complain to your own seeing you choose to take the race angle.

Hypocrites.

http://news.yahoo.com/zimmerman-lawyer-ask-florida-pay-300-000-legal-042625962.html

Zimmerman lawyer to ask Florida to pay up to $300,000 in legal costs: report
8/27/13

(Reuters) - George Zimmerman, whose acquittal in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin sparked protests across the United States, will ask Florida to pay up to $300,000 of his legal expenses, his attorney told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday.

Zimmerman will rely on state law that allows a defendant who has been found not guilty to be reimbursed for costs associated with a case, the paper reported.

Mark O'Mara, attorney for the 29-year-old Zimmerman, will soon prepare a motion seeking authorization of the payments and will submit that to the judge who presided over the case, the lawyer told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday evening.

O'Mara could not be reached for comment.

Zimmerman could not recoup attorney fees under the law, but he could seek costs related to the trial such as expenditures for expert witnesses and an animated video that defense attorneys showed jurors, the Orlando Sentinel reported. The costs could range between $200,000 and $300,000, the paper said.

Zimmerman, who is white and Hispanic, was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter on July 13 in Florida after a racially charged trial in the shooting of Martin, a 17-year-old African-American, in February 2012. Thousands of people demonstrated across the United States after the verdict.

Zimmerman was a volunteer neighborhood watchman in the central Florida town of Sanford, Florida, at the time of the shooting and said he acted in self-defense.

NYPD: Man Brain-Dead Following Random Rampage In Union Square

Witness: Suspect Vowed To Attack 'Next White Person Who Walks By'


It came out of nowhere.
 
A man allegedly went on a rampage in Union Square on Wednesday afternoon and left a complete stranger brain-dead in the process.
 
Police said that the attack may have been a hate crime.
 
Friends of Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, were shocked to hear about the random act of violence that left the gentle, retired train conductor in a coma, CBS 2′s Dave Carlin reported on Friday.
 
“I don’t believe that. I don’t know why that happened. He is very nice,” Igor Sapozhnikov said.
 
Babbitt was minding his own business as he walked through the crowd near the chess boards in Union Square when a man made a hateful announcement and began his rampage, witnesses said.
 
“He said ‘the next white person who walks by I’m going to [expletive],’” one woman said. “His fist went in and the man’s head bobbed and he hit the ground and you could hear his skull hitting the ground.”
 
The man continued his rampage before demanding to see police officers.
 
“He stood there and hit two more people and asked for the police to come,” Michael Benson said.
 
Stunned witnesses counted a total of three people attacked. The suspect, Lashawn Marten, 31, remained at the scene until police arrived.
 
Babbitt was on the ground with blood flowing from his head. Nearby were two other victims icing their faces.

Because of Marten’s alleged comments about targeting white people the incident could result in hate crime charges in addition to felony assault charges, according to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

“Obviously our Hate Crimes Task Force is involved in aspects of that case,” Kelly said.
 
Witnesses said they were amazed at the brazen, public nature of the assault.
 
“This is such a crowded area. You’d expect it in a back alley, but there are so many people here. That’s the strange part,” Garrett Browning said.
 
Babbitt was taken to Bellevue Hospital. Family and friends said that he is in a coma and has been declared brain-dead.
 
His 92-year-old mother, Hedda, was by his side. She shared a Sheepshead Bay apartment with her son. He was her primary caregiver.

National Media Completely Ignore NY Man Left Brain Dead By Attacker Shouting 'I Hate White People'

NewsBusters asked Saturday if the media will report a New York man becoming brain dead as a result of an unprovoked attacked by a man saying "I hate white people."
 
So far with the exception of local New York coverage, the answer is a resounding "No."
 
Analyses of Google News, LexisNexis, and closed-caption transcripts found absolutely no national reporting of Jeffrey Babbitt, the 62-year-old retired train conductor now in a coma at Bellevue Hospital.
 
Not one word on ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, or NBC.
 
Potentially even more curious, the largest newspaper in New York, the New York Times, appears to have not reported this attack despite it occurring in its own backyard.
 
If Babbitt were black, and his assailant shouted "I hate black people" before inflicting what appears will be a death blow, would America's media be so disinterested?
 
Or would this be headline news much like what we saw with Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman?
 
Sadly, we all know the answer as our media have once again shown that they are only interested in white on black hate crimes.
 
The other variety just don't fit the agenda.
 
*****Update: It turns out the New York Times did report this matter at its website Friday and in print Saturday. Unfortunately, the name of the assailant was wrong and the article didn't include Babbitt's. That's why it appeared this event had gone unreported.
 
Readers are advised the errant report was a total of 152 words buried on page 21.
 
I guess that's the importance the Times gives to black on white hate crimes.

Parents Upset After Trayvon Martin Day Planned During Local Homecoming Week

Parents were upset after Carrick High School approved a plan to have a Trayvon Martin theme day during the school’s homecoming.
 
The homecoming committee, and school voted and approved the theme which is part of school spirit week.
 
Parents were upset that kids were being encouraged to wear hoodies to school during the Wednesday theme.

The 17-year-old’s shooting death let loose a firestorm of protests in February of 2012. Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February 2012 in Sanford, Florida.
 
Tensions have since eased and headlines have faded, but at Carrick High School, Martin’s memory has not. And to commemorate Martin, students planned to wear hoodies to make it a positive thing.
 
But it was not seen as positive by all.


 
“I am a little worried about that with the different people, how they’re going to react,” said parent Jennifer Kagle.
 
“If they want to wear the hoodies to represent him and the kind of person he was, they should do it,” said parent Bruce Bergener.
 
Student Bryan Bergener said, “A lot of people were complaining, like, the school advisers to change it.”
 
It brought up some controversy to the point where there were people giving mixed signals about it,” said Homecoming Committee member Javon Jordan.
 
After getting numerous complaints, the school now says the theme has been cancelled.
 
Mondays’ theme is bright color day, Tuesday’s theme is twins dress alike day, and Wednesday is now Bucco hat day.
 
“So we just used Bucco Day to put everybody together, put everybody as a whole,” Jordan said.

Of course it was Obama that started this as another distraction to all his problems in Washington..

Racism of Sports Logos Put Into Context By American Indian Group

 An American Indian organization has shed new light on the context of how offensive and racist sports team images like the Cleveland Indians and Washington Redskins is to their community.

The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) published a powerful poster featuring two baseball hats that each have a stereotypical racist image of a Jewish man and Chinese man to show it has the same connotation as the Cleveland Indians. The hats were titled “New York Jews” and “San Francisco Chinamen.”

The quote on the poster reads, ”No race, creed or religion should endure the ridicule faced by the Native Americans today. Please help us put an end to this mockery and racism by visiting www.ncai.org“.

The organization has spent years trying to get offensive sports team names and logos changed like the Cleveland Indians and Washington Redskins professional teams.

President Barack Obama said Saturday he would consider getting rid of the Washington Redskins name if he owned the team.
He just interjected that out of no where... and now the media will run with this as far as they can

Jefferson Keel, President of the NCAI told the Indian Country Today Media Network that President Obama’s remarks last week “underscore the fact that has become increasingly obvious.

“[That name] originated in the bounty paid for Native body parts and human flesh. It does not honor Native people in any way, and has no place in modern American society,” he explained to the network.

Keel also shared that the word Redskins is a racial slur to the Native American community and that it is very offensive.

But the thoughts and beliefs of native people are the basis of the debate over changing the team name. And looking across the breadth of Native America — with 2 million Indians enrolled in 566 federally recognized tribes, plus another 3.2 million who tell the Census they are Indian — it’s difficult to tell how many are opposed to the name.

The NFL has said it will meet with an Indian tribe pushing for the Redskins to drop the nickname, although NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he did not know if he or whether owner Dan Snyder would attend.

That group, the Oneida Indian Nation, held a symposium on the topic in Washington on Monday, timed to coincide with the NFL meetings.

At Monday’s session, a member of Congress, Minnesota Democrat Betty McCollum, said the league and team are “promoting a racial slur” and “this issue is not going away.”

After Goodell’s news conference Tuesday, a spokesman for the Oneida Indian Nation, Joel Barkin, issued a statement that read, in part: “The fact is that the league will not truly be listening to critics of this racial slur unless its commissioner gets personally involved.”

EXCLUSIVE OPINION: Man Falsely Accused of **** by Sharpton: Advertisers Must Drop Support

 "How can any type of commercial advertiser be comfortable with having Al Sharpton as a spokesperson?"


Steven Pagones is a former Assistant District Attorney in the State of New York. He became the victim of Al Sharpton’s defamatory smear campaign to label him a rapist of 15-year-old black girl Tawana Brawley in 1987. Now he speaks out at Truth Revolt. To help stop advertiser support for Sharpton, sign our petition:
 
In November of 1987, 15-year-old African-American girl Tawana Brawley went missing. When she was found, it is alleged that she began telling people that she had been approached, kidnapped, raped, sodomized, and her body scrawled on with human feces by individuals whom she supposedly described as resembling white police officers. Law enforcement officials began working with her, but she soon enlisted the efforts of attorneys Alton Maddox, Vernon Mason, and a then-obscure supposed civil rights leader named Al Sharpton.
 
Soon thereafter, all cooperation between the Brawley camp and law enforcement was cut off.
 
I remember very clearly the day I was first accused of being involved in the kidnaping and **** of Tawana Brawley. I was preparing to attend a Christening on a Sunday when my phone rang. I picked up the phone, and the person asked if I was Steve Pagones; it was a media member inquiring about team Brawley’s allegations about me. I didn’t know what he was talking about. Then he dropped the bombshell: the Brawley team had said I was responsible for raping Brawley. I stammered, disbelieving, “That’s absurd. There’s not a shred of truth to it.” For the next 24 hours, my phone didn’t stop ringing. I was on the front page of every major newspaper in the state, and many across the country. It was simply unbelievable that the allegations had been made – and that the Brawley team made them without any evidence or support whatsoever. As soon as his charges hit the media, I had to hire around-the-clock security. I received death threats on the phone, in the mail. I had to hire armed guards for my family, for my property. My whole life was turned upside down.
 
Worse, because of the atmosphere and the race-baiting going on, I had to prove my innocence, as opposed to anyone having to prove my guilt. It was draining, emotionally and physically. Eventually, a grand jury found not only that I hadn’t had anything to do with whatever happened to Brawley, but that the entire story was a hoax.
 
It was deeply horrible for me and my family – and it was especially horrible dealing with someone like Sharpton, who knows no bounds, who has no concern for responsibility or decency, and who has no intention of providing accountability for the damage that he does. Sharpton’s decision to spew hatred and outrageous lies about me and about law enforcement was a crucial one – I realized there was no stopping him but by suing him. I had two goals: holding Sharpton accountable, and clearing the record. So I brought a defamation suit against Sharpton, as well as Maddox and Mason. It took almost ten years to get them into court; they did everything they could to delay, to fight, to exhaust me. When we did go to court in 1997, a trial that should have taken a month at the most ended up taking eight. A judgment was rendered, and I was legally vindicated.
 
But Sharpton was never really held accountable for what he did. You can watch him every night on MSNBC. He visits President Obama at the White House. Matt Lauer interviews him on NBC’s Today Show. And advertisers pay his salary.
 
I don’t think very highly of MSNBC to begin with. But in spite of that, I was dumbfounded over their decision to hire Sharpton. Look at his history, his rhetoric, the damage to race relations that he caused -- not only in my case but in other matters he was responsible for escalating – and now they’ve given him a platform anyway, a platform from which he can push his hatred. It may be disguised hatred, but it’s hatred nonetheless. I can’t help but question the philosophy and honesty of any network or advertiser that can give him access to such a huge audience.
 
And I truly do not understand those companies that choose to advertise with Sharpton. I would like to think that when an advertiser spends money, it wants to be involved with a person who has a history of integrity, who has a history of telling the truth. Sharpton doesn’t represent any of those ideas. How can any type of commercial advertiser be comfortable with having Al Sharpton as a spokesperson? While it is true that Sharpton has on occasion served a legitimate purpose in representing individuals who may have been harmed, that should not allow him to get away with the statements he has made about me and the damage he has caused to others; the media and advertisers should not be allowed to rehabilitate Sharpton without him providing any honesty and accountability. I have a hard time viewing Al Sharpton as a civil rights activist. I view Al Sharpton as being nothing more than an opportunist and a race-baiter.
 
I’m not looking for, nor do I expect an apology from someone like Al Sharpton. Rather, what I hope to see -- and what I hope the networks and advertisers would push for -- would be for Sharpton to admit that he now knows that Steve Pagones and the other individuals he lied about had nothing to do with whatever happened to Brawley. In my opinion, until Sharpton comes clean about the things that he’s done in the past -- until he’s able to confront his demons and set the record straight -- he’ll never gain the legitimacy he’s hoping to gain. He’ll always have that history, no matter how much the media try to rehabilitate him. He’ll always have to live with the Tawana Brawley story, with the damage that he caused to race relations. That’s going to be his legacy.

Bob Costas: Redskins Name Undeniably a ‘Slur’
10/13/13

NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas weighed in forcefully Sunday on the controversy over the nature of the Washington Redskins’ name, which has stirred debate amid the  NFL team’s refusal to change its moniker.

In his half-time essay segment during NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” telecast of the Redskins-Dallas Cowboys game, Costas parsed the uproar over the Redskins and other sports franchise names that have been seen as insensitive in the modern era to various minority groups.

He noted that some teams have adjusted their names over the year’s in light of modern-day sensitivities, including other teams dubbed “Redskins,” a derogatory term for Native Americans.

Costas, an influential voice in the sports world, acknowledged that the name is used with “benign” intent in the present day by the team and its owner, Daniel Snyder. But he left no doubt about his reasoning on why there is a public campaign to pressure the team to change the name.

“Think for a moment about the term ‘Redskins,’ and how it truly differs from all the others.  Ask yourself what the equivalent would be, if directed toward African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or members of any other ethnic group,” Costas said.

“When considered that way, ‘Redskins’ can’t possibly honor a heritage, or noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term.  It’s an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent. It is fair to say that for a long time now, and certainly in 2013, no offense has been intended. But, if you take a step back, isn’t it clear to see how offense “might” legitimately be taken?”

Here is a full transcript of Costas’ remarks, provided by NBC:

With Washington playing Dallas here tonight, it seems like an appropriate time to acknowledge the ongoing controversy about the name “Redskins.”

Let’s start here. There is no reason to believe that owner Daniel Snyder, or any official or player from his team, harbors animus toward Native Americans or wishes to disrespect them. This is undoubtedly also true of the vast majority of those who don’t think twice about the longstanding moniker. And in fact, as best can be determined, even a majority of Native Americans say they are not offended.

But, having stipulated that, there’s still a distinction to be made. Objections to names like “Braves,” “Chiefs,” “Warriors,” and the like strike many of us as political correctness run amok. These nicknames honor, rather than demean. They are pretty much the same as “Vikings,” “Patriots,” or even “Cowboys.” And names like “Blackhawks,” “Seminoles,” and “Chippewas,” while potentially more problematic, can still be okay provided the symbols are appropriately respectful – which is where the Cleveland Indians with the combination of their name and “Chief Wahoo” logo have sometimes run into trouble.

A number of teams, mostly in the college ranks, have changed their names in response to objections. The Stanford Cardinal and the Dartmouth Big Green were each once the Indians; the St. John’s Redmen have become the Red Storm, and the Miami of Ohio Redskins – that’s right, Redskins – are now the Red Hawks.

Still, the NFL franchise that represents the nation’s capital has maintained its name.  But think for a moment about the term “Redskins,” and how it truly differs from all the others.  Ask yourself what the equivalent would be, if directed toward African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or members of any other ethnic group.

When considered that way, “Redskins” can’t possibly honor a heritage, or noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term.  It’s an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent. It is fair to say that for a long time now, and certainly in 2013, no offense has been intended. But, if you take a step back, isn’t it clear to see how offense “might” legitimately be taken?

Bob Costas needs to take a look at Keith Olbermann and all his political rants that he did on the NFL air. NFL fans dont care one whit about the MSM Liberal political agenda and frankly they dont want to hear about it. The NFL should get rid of Bob, it isnt the place for you Liberal media bias as much as you try to make NFL fans liberals most arent.

Oh and Bob, I live in North East Ohio, and i have Sioux Indian in my heritage, and we arent getting rid of the Cleveland Indians or Chief Wahoo, no matter how many times they let us down.  :P

Remind me again why it is that we should care what Bob Costas has to say? He's a sports commentator, that's it.

Agreed, there is no place in sports for politic sideshows. Bob needs to shut up or go away.

Redford: ‘Racism involved’ in the ‘paralyzed environment’ Obama faces

On CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday, Robert Redford said congressional criticism of President Barack Obama is racially motivated.

“Don’t get me started on that,” the left-leaning actor said when asked about political gridlock in Washington, D.C. “What I wanted to see [in Obama's second term] is turning out to be a bit of a dream that never came true. I don’t envy [Obama's] position. I think he is a good man. I think he is an intelligent man, a compassionate man who can’t function in that environment. That environment — it is so decrepit. It is so paralyzed. And the worst of it is that it is paralyzed by intention. There’s a body of congressional people that want to paralyze the system. I think that what’s underneath it, unfortunately, is there is probably some racism involved, which is really awful.”

“I don’t know whether it’s an elephant,” Redford said. “It’s some kind of animal. Whatever it is, I think it’s in the room. But there are other issues there. It’s not just racism, I think. It’s a group of people that are afraid of change. And they’re so narrow-minded that some people, when you see change coming, get so threatened by change, they get angry and they get terrorized then they get vicious.”

Black mobs and the coming race war

Thomas Sowell highlights book exposing multi-city wave of attacks on whites


One of the reasons for being glad to be as old as I am is that I may be spared living to see a race war in America. Race wars are often wars in which nobody wins and everybody ends up much worse off than they were before.
 
Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.
 
For American society, a dangerous polarization has set in. Signs of this polarization over the years include opposite reactions between blacks and whites to verdicts in the O.J. Simpson murder case, the “****” charges against Duke University students, and trials resulting from the beating of Rodney King and the death of Trayvon Martin.
 
More dangerous than these highly publicized episodes over the years are innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches and in other public places all across the country today.
 
While some of these attacks make it into the media as isolated incidents, the nationwide pattern of organized black on white attacks by thugs remains invisible in the mainstream media, with the notable exception of Bill O’Reilly on the Fox News Channel.
 
Even when these attacks are accompanied by shouts of anti-white rhetoric and exultant laughter at the carnage, the racial makeup of the attackers and their victims is usually ignored by the media, and public officials often deny that race has anything to do with what happened.
 
These attacks have sent many people to the hospital, and some have died, but the attacks are often carried out in a festive atmosphere. What are called “troubled youths,” in this and other contexts, are often in fact young people enjoying themselves greatly by creating big trouble for others.
 
Some of these many attacks are covered in detail in a book titled “White Girl Bleed A Lot” by Colin Flaherty. It was a phrase that I recognized immediately, from my own previous research.
 
That phrase was uttered by one of a group of black attackers who descended on a group of whites at a July 4th fireworks show in Milwaukee. But what happened there was not unique, either in itself or in the efforts of police and political authorities to play down what happened – and to say that race had nothing to do with it.
 
When the Chicago Tribune was criticized for editing out the race of the attackers in a series of similar organized attacks in Chicago, it replied that race was irrelevant. Yet race is not considered irrelevant when indignantly editorializing on a disproportionate number of young black males arrested and imprisoned.
 
Sadly, what happened in Milwaukee and Chicago were not isolated incidents. They were part of a pattern repeated in dozens of cities, located in every region of the country. Colin Flaherty’s book, which is subtitled “The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” reveals this pattern in painful detail.
 
Other books are emerging that are more clearly a white backlash, in the sense that they attack behavior patterns among contemporary blacks in general.
 
Perhaps the most clearly backlash books are those written by Paul Kersey, whose central theme is that whites have created thriving cities, which blacks subsequently took over and ruined. Examples include his books about Birmingham (“The Tragic City”) and Detroit (“Escape from Detroit”).
 
Kersey even takes a swing at Rush Limbaugh (and at yours truly) for saying that liberal policies destroyed these cities. He says that San Francisco and other cities with liberal policies, but without black demographic and political takeovers, have not been ruined. His books are poorly written, but raise tough questions.
 
It would be easy to simply dismiss Kersey as a racist. But denouncing him or ignoring him is not refuting him. Refuting requires thought, which has largely been replaced by fashionable buzz words and catch phrases, when it comes to discussions of race.
 
Thought is long overdue. So is honesty.

Ted Cruz Explains to Trayvon Martin’s Mother How ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws Help Protect the Black Community

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) came face-to-face with Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, on Capitol Hill during a Tuesday hearing on “Stand Your Ground” laws. After offering his condolences to Fulton, Cruz told the mother that the self-defense laws are not racist because they help blacks as much as whites, if not more.
 
Cruz also explained that, despite some efforts to exploit Martin’s death, George Zimmerman’s defense team never used Stand Your Ground laws as a defense in the murder trial.

“We know that some in our political process have a desire to exploit that tragic, violent incident for agendas that have nothing to do with that young man who lost his life. We have seen efforts to undermine the verdict of the jury and, more broadly, to inflame racial tensions that I think are sad and irresponsible,” the Texas senator added.
 
Cruz went on to refute the “remarkable” allegation that Stand Your Ground laws do not protect black communities.
 
“I think that’s a remarkable statement on many, many fronts, including the fact that a great many African-Americans find themselves victims of violent crime, and have asserted this defense to defend themselves, defend their families, defend their children,” he explained.
 
The assertion is even more “remarkable,” Cruz said, when you consider that in 2004, “a state senator in Illinois by the name of Barack Obama co-sponsored an expansion of Illinois’ law providing civil immunity for those who use justifiable force to defend themselves.”
 
“The notion that stand your ground laws are some form of veiled racism may be a convenient political attack, but it is not borne out by the facts remotely,” he concluded.

Black mob picks on 'The Wrong Guy'
'Knockout Game' results backfire when 'victim' is armed


DeAndre Felton and his crew had a problem: The mall was closed. The curfew in effect. But they were still high on drugs and wanted to have more fun. So they decided to beat someone up.

Turns out they chose The Wrong Guy.

They had just come from a local park where DeAndre and 15 others beat up two girls, sending one to the hospital with a broken arm.

So DeAndre came up with an increasingly popular idea: In St. Louis they call it the Knockout Game. In Illinois, Polar Bear Hunting.

Regardless of what DeAndre in Meriden, Conn., called it, the rules are the same all over: Find a person who looks defenseless. Then punch him. Or kick him until you get tired or he is knocked out. Or worse. Game over.

DeAndre was part of a pattern of hundreds of examples of black mob violence documented in more than 80 cities revealed in “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.”

DeAndre knew The Knockout Game was usually pretty safe. For the attacker, that is. In Meriden, victims aren’t likely to carry concealed weapons. Nor do they fight back: As one player said in Philadelphia as his victim begged for mercy: “It’s not our fault you can’t fight.”

See the Big List of black mob violence.

So when DeAndre and his gang of eight to 10 left the parking lot in a Meriden mall just a few weeks ago – soon after the park beat-down – he was confident little could go wrong when he told his friends he wanted to “beat someone up.”

They found their victim a few minutes later. Soon DeAndre and his confederate, Deshaun Jones, were peeling off from the group, heading for a guy walking home from work. Alone.

We don’t know his name or race or much else about him other than this: He was The Wrong Guy.

With their friends lurking less than 100 yards away, DeAndre and Deshaun attacked The Wrong Guy. Then came the surprise: The Wrong Guy fought back. He pulled a knife. Soon DeAndre was dead, and Deshaun was on his way to the emergency room.

It took the police a few days to piece it together. And while they did, Facebook pages, Twitter streams and a televised candlelight vigil were full of praise and happy memories for the fallen DeAndre. Full of promises to catch the person responsible. Full of rumors about what happened – including some who thought DeAndre could be the next Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who was killed by a neighborhood watch commander.

Two weeks after the killing, police released the results of their investigation. They said they delayed release of the findings out of respect for the family of DeAndre and on the advice of community leaders. Curiously, the police report did not mention the earlier mob attack involving DeAndre. Nor did the police mention what, if anything, they did out of respect for the two female victims of the earlier assault.

But the report left little doubt about what happened that night.

They talked to other members of Andre’s mob, plus a dozen more people, and they all said the same thing: DeAndre and Deshaun attacked The Wrong Guy, who then stabbed them in self-defense.

The families didn’t want to hear that explanation.

Deshaun’s mother said the police had it wrong: The Wrong Guy was the real attacker.

“This is a monster, this is a monster after children,” Alexis Jones said. “This man is still on the streets, and my son is sitting home trying to recover. My son has two stab wounds in his back, one on his side, and he has a slice on his neck.”

DeAndre’s mother joined in.

“I just don’t believe it. My son was not raised to be a troublemaker,” said Valda Felton. “I don’t want them or anyone else to make my child out to be a villain.”

Family friend and minister Rev. Dante Moss, who officiated at DeAndre’s funeral, held a press conference and called the police findings a “comic book.” Moss compared DeAndre to Trayvon.
This is your typical Race Bater right here. This guy probably KNEW exactly how this kid acted and has the gall, to come out and lie like this. You Mr. Reverend, who for starters need to repent of using that Title, will one day answer for your lies.

The minister and the family said the police had it wrong: The Wrong Guy attacked DeAndre and DeShaun, not the other way around.

Police say not one of the people present corroborated Moss’ claim. But Moss just kept on keeping on.

He posted the following almost a dozen times on DeAndre’s Facebook page, now a memorial site: “The Funeral is over but Deandre is still screaming for Justice! Get Ready to Rock The Earth! Don’t let him Die Twice!!!! Stand Ready to Rock the Earth!”

Posters to local news sites pitched in, including his aunt.

“Deandre was trying to help his friend after he got stabbed,” said Talitha Frazier “Then deandre got stabbed in his back. I have one question? In the state of Ct. at what point are you allowed to take someones life. Some one please answer that for me. I am his aunt.”

Katie Lynn posted this after the funeral: “deandre lost his life..sticking up for his friend. he’s a hero. people just need to stop pointing fingers and realize the grief that family is going through.”

Lots of people joined with Moss to say they had no faith in the police investigation. And they believed the crime against DeAndre and Deshaun was racially motivated.

“Why should another one of Gods black angels die without no type of justice again from the meriden police dept,” Edwina Lebby posted on Facebook. “If it were a white kid justice would of been served!!!!”

“He was stabbed last night on kensington ave by a coward who didn’t stop to think that this was someone’s baby ughhh,” said Annette Rosado “God i hope they catch this person:(”

Celines Matias Rodriguez said: “justice for deandre!! And for his friend who was stabbed while he was turned away!!!! An arrest needs to be made!!!! An adult using a knife on small children needs to be punished!!!! I pray to God that charges are brought about soon….”

“Where’s the video? Show it to us,” said another Facebook poster. “Hmmmm. I want to know why they had to go find this guy 22 hours later if he was attacked. I want to know. Doesn’t sound right to me at all. He’s so innocent? Really? Then why did he run and hide? Just someone answer that.”

But catching The Wrong Guy was not a problem. Hospital video and witness accounts led the police to his door less than one day after the attack. He handed over the knife and expressed surprise one of his attackers died. His name was not released.

Others in Meriden point to several other examples of black mob violence say this was not an isolated incident. Said MeridenMom: “Where was justice when my 40 year old brother was innocently ‘jumped’ last summer by a group of teens/young boys and when the neighborhood churchman was ‘jumped’ this past summer walking home from a nightly service by a group of boys. My kids knew and went to school wit[h] both teens and knew exactly what happened before news reported it. Kids was high looking for trouble and jumped somebody.”

Despite the best efforts of Moss to the contrary, the earth did not rock.

No charges have been filed in the stabbing or the assault. DeAndre was 15 years old. DeShaun is 13.

Four days later and 1,300 miles away in St. Cloud, Jesse Smithers was getting ready for another round of the Knockout Game.

Smithers was riding with a car-full of friends when he spotted The Right Guy: a 20-year old student named Colton Gleason.

Smithers told the driver to stop the car. He got out and punched Gleason in the face.

They did not have to worry about Gleason carrying weapons. That’s not what college students do in Minnesota. Soon Smithers was back in the car, bragging about his knockout punch.

Gleason died that night. And Smithers was charged with murder soon after. None of the friends was charged. Though a judge did have to issue a no-contact order because many of the witnesses were being threatened – another tradition of the Knockout Game.

Employees Forced to Take Diversity Training After Man Wears Obama Costume to Company Party

A Kentucky medical center is mandating all of their employees complete diversity training after a man came dressed to an annual costume party wearing a mask depicting President Barack Obama in what appears to be a straight jacket.
 
Jennie Stuart Medical Center is also asking their employees to refrain from wearing political, religious, ethnic and gender based Halloween costumes, according to WZTV.

(http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Screen-Shot-2013-10-30-at-5.18.05-PM.jpg)

At the medical center’s annual Halloween party, the man wearing the Obama mask was escorted by two individuals dressed as security officers and performed a skit called “VIP Special Delivery,” winning the group third place in the costume contest.
 
But, after a photo circulated of the group, the medical center’s VP of Human Resources wrote a letter to the staff of about 750 apologizing to anyone offended.
 
“I think it is very, very offensive,” C.E. Timberlake, a local pastor, said. “And really, that shouldn’t have happened.”
 
It was not immediately clear which employee was dressed in the Obama mask at the party.

Christian Student Forced to Remove Jesus Halloween Costume Over Fear He’d Offend ‘Religious Sensibilities’

Administrators at Highland Park High School in Highland Park, Ill., were reportedly so worried that a teenager’s Jesus Halloween costume would so offend “religious sensibilities” or promote the Christian faith that they initially pulled him from class and told him to remove it.
 
Marshon Sanders, a senior at the school, later told media that his costume was merely an attempt to idolize Jesus, not to disparage the religious figure.
 
“[Christ is] the most influential person in my life,” the teen told WBBM-TV.
 
Sanders is a practicing Christian who regularly attends church and was baptized over the summer. After going to school dressed as rapper Snoop Dogg last year which was apparently permitted by school officials, his mother, Angenetta Frison, told her son to choose someone more positive — and so he did.
 
But the district has a policy against Halloween costumes that could offend or create stereotypes surrounding gender, sexual orientation, heritage or religion, so Sanders’ holiday disguise created concern among school leaders, The Chicago Tribune reported.
 
The teen told WGN-TV that he was called out of class and down to the office during first period, where the dean chastised him for dressing as the Christian savior. He also indicated that the situation wasn’t just rooted in fear that he might offend, but that there also may have been a concern over him potentially promoting religion.
 
“I was taken down to the dean’s office and she said my costume was offensive,” he said. “That I was promoting religion, which wasn’t my intent, so that’s when she made me take off the crown, she made me take off the crucifix.”

Sanders’ costume included a toga, a cross and a crown of thorns — all sentiments associated with Jesus. While he was asked to remove these elements, school officials investigated the situation and later changed their minds.

Upon further review, we realized the student did not intend to be offensive,” Melinda Vajdi, a spokeswoman for District 113, told the Tribune. “Therefore, the school communicated to the student that he could wear the costume.”

Despite the about-face, Frison said her son chose not to put his Jesus garb back on.
 
She also wondered in an interview with The Chicago Sun-Times if the fact that Sanders is an African American had anything to do with the school’s initial protest.
 
“Race is an issue in our country. We still struggle with racism,” she said. “I don’t know if that was a factor, but it may have been. Would a Caucasian student dressed as Jesus have had the same effect?”

Newspapers directed: Cover up black violence

City's epidemic silenced by national 'journalism' society


When a mom and daughter were kidnapped, forced to withdraw money from an ATM, raped, then shot last week, the Indianapolis Star played it by the book: Do not mention the suspects are black.
 
The “book” in this case is written by the Society of Professional Journalists, headquartered just three miles from the scene of the crime. In last month’s issue of the SPJ magazine, the oldest and largest organization of journalists in America reminded its members how they should report racial violence.
 
Don’t.
 
The SPJ story was just repeating what dozens of chapters around the country tell its members in regular seminars: Unless someone is considerate enough to wave around a sign saying, “Kill Honky,” or issue a press release or utter racial expletives in front of lots of witnesses, the fact that the suspects just happen to be black has no bearing on the story.
 
And if you wonder about it, you are probably a “racist and hater,” said the SPJ.
 
Never mind that when Indianapolis police dispatchers take a 911 call, one of the first questions they ask is about race.
 
Never mind when these same dispatchers talk to patrolmen on publicly accessible scanners, one of the first pieces of information they broadcast is the race of the suspects.
 
Never mind that Indianapolis is the scene of dozens of recent examples of black mob violence, though you would not know it from reading the Indianapolis Star.
 
Many of these episodes are centered downtown, near the gleaming but increasingly empty Circle Mall. Many are connected to the Indiana Black Expo held every summer. And when police flood the zone to prevent more black mob violence downtown – with helicopters and horses and SWAT teams – the rowdy sometimes take a bus to a local mall and create violence and mayhem there.
 
Many of these episodes of black mob violence are on video. Many are documented in “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” which has an entire chapter on Indianapolis.
 
To be fair, Indianapolis is not remarkably different from Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Greensboro, Rochester, Richmond, Miami Beach, Fresno, Louisville, Memphis, Greensboro and more than 100 other centers of regular and intense black mob violence: The papers in those towns are loathe to report it as well. They say they are color blind.
 
These are the same papers that every day run stories about black caucuses, black churches, black colleges, black TV stations, black expos, black radio, black newspapers, black blogs and on and on.
 
But black mob violence? Not a thing.
 
People in Indianapolis are wondering why: They question why the paper is so heavily invested in refusing to let their readers know that black mob violence exists exponentially out of proportion in their town.
 
Daniel Lee is just one of dozens who left comments at the IndyStar.com and other web sites:
 
“The Star won’t publish the suspects’ race unless it’s part of a ‘detailed’ description including clothes, hairstyle, Italian or German-style boots, hoop or stud earrings, buttons, snaps or hook-and-eye fasteners, plaid or paisley, earth-tones or vibrant joyful colors, full description of every visible tattoo, etc,” Lee quipped. “It’s their way of avoiding what they consider the racism of calling black suspects ‘black.’”
 
Johnny West piled on: “It is completely irresponsible for the Star to not have a description of the suspects included in this story. This story is useless to the community without a timely description. If police did not release a description, that should be noted in the story.”
 
David Hogan noticed a pattern: “I do not understand why the Indy Star will not release a description of the suspects. According to IMPD, 4-5 black male suspects, one of which who was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, were involved.
 
“I got this from the Channel 8 news site. Bill McClerry is the reporter on this story,” Hogan continued. “Hey, Bill, if you are reading these comments, can you please explain why the Indy Star does not release a physical description other than maybe height and age of the possible suspects? I think it would be helpful to get a reason behind this critical omission of facts surrounding this and other stories the paper has reported in the past.”
 
On and on it went until Alvie Lindsay, the “News and Investigations Director” at the Star stepped in to explain it all.
 
“Lots of questions here about descriptions of suspects,” Lindsay responded. “We are working to update the story. If and when we have a detailed description of the suspects – and not merely race and gender, but something that could reasonably help the public identify individuals – that information will be included.
 
“Bill, our reporter, just talked to the IMPD spokesman who said there are no other such details at this point,” Lindsay continued. “It’s actually not clear, he said, how many suspects were involved. No age range has been provided, either.”
 
After reading the story, several commentators mistakenly came to believe that these details were not available. Or that the victims were not aware of the racial identity of the suspects.
 
Said Barbara Grasher Howard, “Did you not read the article? It clearly said the victims weren’t able to recall details. Police are hoping they’re more able to do so once the trauma is somewhat past” – which is not true.
 
But at least the Indy Star allows some comments on the topic. Other daily papers often do not, or close comments altogether when the subject is racial violence.
 
The Indy Star may refuse to report on racial violence, but lots of people know about it anyway. Abdul Hakim-Shabazz is an Indianapolis attorney and community activist who has heard it all before. Writing in Indiana Barrister, Hakim Shabazz says it is time to take off the blinders and confront the racial roots of the violence and lawlessness in Indianapolis.
 
“Indianapolis, you have a problem. Your problem is young, black men who are out of control. … It’s time to step up and start making examples out of people,” Hakim-Shabazz writes. “Decent citizens, black and white, should not have to live in fear of urban terrorists.”
 
Meanwhile, over at the SPJ headquarters, of the 35 people who are staffers and members of the board or directors, none is black.

Holder: We Might Still Prosecute Zimmerman

Despite the complete failure of both local and federal law enforcement to find any evidence whatsoever of George Zimmerman’s supposed racism ending in the death of black teenager Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in Florida, the Obama administration continues to threaten prosecution against Zimmerman. On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder said that despite Zimmerman’s acquittal in his second-degree murder trial, the Department of Justice was still considering whether to bring civil rights charges against Zimmerman. “I'm not sure exactly how much longer that will take, but we will get to a point where we are able to make a determination,” he said.

 The Obama administration has taken an incredibly active role in the Zimmerman case, with President Obama originally intervening before Zimmerman’s arrest to state that if he had a son, he would have looked like Trayvon Martin; after Zimmerman’s acquittal, Obama gave a speech on race relations in America implying that Zimmerman had racially profiled Martin.
 
The Department of Justice also sent members of the government to facilitate rallies against Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, prior to Zimmerman’s arrest.

Police deny series of trail attacks 'a pattern'
 
Yet reports document multiple incidents of black mob violence


Washington Post writers know how to spot racial hatred: It’s all about the “pattern,” said Mary Curtis in a recent Post column. That is how she can “determine the motive” of white members of Congress who oppose President Obama. And whether they are racist.
 
But this pattern-seeking reporting has not yet made its way to the Post crime desk.
 
And the latest example of that came Halloween night, when a “large group of assailants” beat and robbed a 50-year teacher at the Metropolitan Branch Trail, a hiking and biking path from Union Station downtown to the suburbs in Maryland.
 
It’s one of dozens of similar mob attacks at the Metro Trail over the last several years. All the assailants are black. Most of the victims are not.
 
But not once has the Post ever examined this “Question of Race” at the trail, as the paper titled the recent Curtis column about racial motivation.
 
We do not know if these attackers carried racial signs or uttered racial expletives in front of witnesses. But we do know that a teacher from a nearby charter school was heading home at 9:15 p.m. Then the Post picks up the story:
 
“The victim told police that 10 men ages 18 to 22 were in front of him, near the 600 block of Rhode Island Avenue. The victim said he was on his cellphone when he heard a man say, ‘Let’s get him.’
 
“Police said he was pushed to the ground and beaten in the head. They said the robbers took personal items and $260.”
 
The Post noted that four months ago, a dozen people attacked a bicyclist three blocks away. Never noting that mob, too, was black.
 
Never noting that black mob violence at the Metropolitan Trail is now routine and even frequent. But people who use the trail have no trouble figuring it out. In April, the Titan of Trinidad, a neighborhood blog, described what really happened when a black mob attacked a D.C. commuter on a bicycle, sending him to the hospital with broken bones in his face:
 
“As I was biking home on the Metropolitan Branch Trail today I came across a biker on the trail near R St NE who was severely beaten.
 
“Apparently he was beaten by a fairly large group of African American teenagers that I passed on the trail near the bridge near Florida Avenue.
 
“Apparently they beat this biker, a Caucasian male who looked to be in his 50s, for no reason. Cops swarmed the scene and took the man to the hospital, and tried to track down the kids but as far as I know they have not been caught.
 
“I share this with you to strongly encourage you to use caution on the trail. This incident occurred in broad daylight and the biker did nothing wrong.
 
“I spoke with one of the cops at the scene and he says there are incidents on the trail all the time, day and night. I for one will no longer be using the Metropolitan Branch Trail – please stay safe everyone.”
 
According to the website: “Notably, this was not a robbery; the group of teenagers apparently just attacked and beat this man on the trail without any obvious motive other than to beat him.”
 
Twenty hours after the assault, police issued a statement:
 
“Based upon this offense, we have received a number of questions concerning the Metropolitan Branch Trail. Allow us to address your concerns here.
 
“This was an unprovoked assault by a lone individual and not a pattern connected to other criminal offenses that were reported to MPD.”
 
Not even close.
 
In February, another bicyclist posted about mob violence on the same trail. Writing in the neighborhood blog, Popville.com, he said:
 
“I was assaulted on the Franklin St. bridge today on my way home from work at about 4:30pm. I was on my bike and a group of about 10 14/15 yr-old boys were walking along the sidewalk (which is separated from the road by a concrete barrier).
 
“Two of the kids jumped the barrier into the street as I approached on my bike, the first hit me over the back of the neck (right under my helmet) with something really hard, the second kid tried to punch me and mostly missed.”
 
In October of last year, another biker reported the same crime in the same area with the same results:
 
“Last night on my way to Chinatown I got clothe-lined (or something) as I was blazing down the metropolitan branch on my bike. 4 kids, probably 13-19 were on either side of the trail and decked me good before fleeing the scene.
 
“The incident was at the intersection with T St., at about 4th. I think they mostly just wanted to cause suffering for fun, rather than steal anything.”
 
In February, another poster at Popville reported a black mob assault nearby:
 

“I was attacked by a pack of 14-15 yr-olds, boys and girls, and knocked to the ground. Nothing was stolen and the kids ran off after giving me a few kicks to the head.”
 
In August 2012, a woman reported yet another black mob assault:
 
“I was biking home at 7pm and passed a whole bunch of cop cars taking a report from a guy who had just been jumped by a group of kids. It was broad daylight out, and this guy was easily 6’2″ and fairly well muscled.
 
“I’m a woman. If they’re not afraid to jump a big dude in broad daylight, I shudder to think what they would do to me. I haven’t ridden the MBT since.”
 
One Post reader, who calls himself Rev. Bacon and who also reads WND, figured it out, even if the Post could not: “Read about this urban epidemic called ‘the Knockout Game’ all over the Internet, and then come back and claim it’s a ‘non-lethal situation.’ Or just read an article by this poor dad.”
 
Every story on violence at the Metro Trail generates comments from other people who have experienced similar racial violence there.
 
Perhaps at some point this pattern will also provoke the Post into another “Question of Race” story. We will have to wait and see.
 
But sometimes the Post has a bit of trouble with its reporting of racial violence. In October, the largest gathering of black motorcycle clubs on the West Coast met in Fresno for the semi-annual weekend party called the Half Way Run – so named because it attracts 5,000 black bikers from Northern and Southern California who meet half way between the two areas.
 
One of the participants called it the “West Coast version of Black Bike Week.” Local media reports that party is a predictable site of violence and mayhem.
 
During a late night Saturday gathering at one of the biker club houses, with about 500 black people in attendance, 13 people were shot, one fatally. All black.
 
The Post reported the club was “multi-racial.”
 
Not even close.
 
Back to the Metro Trail: The Washington City Paper reports that several surveillance cameras have been installed near some of the violent hot spots on the path. But there is a minor glitch.
 
“The cameras are solar-powered,” said the paper, “so they don’t work that well at night.”
 
And a spokeswoman for the city’s transportation department that is responsible for the cameras told the paper that her department is “not in the security business,” so there’s no one monitoring the feeds.
 
Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”

I haven't been paying too much to this story, but nonetheless look at the TIMING of it. It's not only getting an over-saturated amount of attention from the sports media, but also from the MSM as well. Again, just compare the TIMING of it.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/incognito-says-martin-sent-him-191613036--nfl.html

Incognito says Martin sent him threatening text

MIAMI (AP) -- - Suspended Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito says teammate Jonathan Martin sent him a threatening text message as an apparent joke only a week before their relationship became the subject of a harassment case that has prompted an NFL investigation.

In an interview with Fox Sports televised Sunday, Incognito said he never took the threat seriously. Incognito said he regrets the racist and profane language he used with Martin, but said it stemmed from a culture of locker-room ''brotherhood,'' not bullying.

''A week before this went down, Jonathan Martin texted me on my phone - 'I will murder your whole ... family,''' Incognito said, quoting Martin as using a profanity. ''Now did I think Jonathan Martin was going to murder my family? Not one bit. ... I knew it was coming from a brother. I knew it was coming from a friend. I knew it was coming from a teammate. That just puts in context how we communicate with one another.''

Responding to the interview, Martin's attorney tweeted the message Incognito quoted. The message was accompanied by two photos of a laughing woman holding a dog, suggesting it was intended as a joke.

''JMart's text 2 Richie Incognito. U decide.....'' attorney David Cornwell tweeted. That was the only response by Cornwell or Martin's agent to requests from The Associated Press for comment on Incognito's interview.

Incognito said Martin also sent him a friendly text four days after leaving the team to undergo counseling for emotional issues. The message came on the heels of the Dolphins' overtime victory against Cincinnati.

''Wassup man? The world's gone crazy lol. I'm good tho congrats on the win,'' Martin said in a text verified by Fox Sports. ''Yeah I'm good man. It's insane bro but just know I don't blame you guys at all. It's just the culture around football and the locker room got to me a little.''

Martin left the team two weeks ago, and Cornwell alleges the second-year pro was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito. Martin hasn't spoken publicly but will discuss the case late next week with a special investigator hired by the league.

''This isn't an issue about bullying,'' Incognito told Fox. ''This is an issue of my and Jon's relationship. You can ask anyone in the Miami Dolphins' locker room who had Jon Martin's back the absolute most, and they'll undoubtedly tell you me.

''All this stuff coming out, it speaks to the culture of our locker room, it speaks to culture of our closeness, it speaks to the culture of our brotherhood.''

Incognito's phone showed 1,142 text messages between the two players over the past year, Fox reported.

The network said Incognito declined to answer only one question: Did coaches order him to toughen up Martin? The NFL will investigate the role of coach Joe Philbin, his staff and Miami management in the case.

The Dolphins (4-4) play for the first time since Incognito was suspended when they face Tampa Bay (0-8) on Monday night.

Incognito is white and Martin is biracial. Teammates both black and white have said Incognito is not a racist, and they've been more supportive of the veteran guard than they have of Martin.

Incognito acknowledged leaving a voicemail for Martin in April in which he used a racist term, threatened to kill his teammate and threatened to slap Martin's mother.

''When I see those words come up across the screen, I'm embarrassed,'' said Incognito, adding that Martin used the same racist term ''a lot.''

''I'm embarrassed by my actions. But what I want people to know is the way Jonathan and the rest of the offensive line and our teammates communicate. It's vulgar. It's not right. ... I understand why a lot of eyebrows get raised when people don't know how Jon and I communicate to one another.''

Incognito said he never sensed that football or the locker-room culture were getting to Martin.

''As his best friend on the team, that's what has me miffed - how I missed this,'' Incognito said. ''I never saw it coming.''

Long labeled one of the NFL's dirtiest players, Incognito acknowledged his reputation for out-of-bounds behavior - and the impact the much-quoted, threatening voicemail has had on his image.

''It sounds terrible. It sounds like I'm a racist pig. It sounds like I'm a meathead. It sounds a lot of things that it's not. ... If you go just by all the knucklehead stuff I've done in the past, you're sitting in your home and thinking, 'This guy is a loose cannon. This guy is a terrible person. This guy is a racist.' That couldn't be farther from the truth.''

Incognito said if he met with Martin and his family, he would apologize for anything they took as malicious.

Appeals court rehears Texas race-admissions case

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A white woman who claims the University of Texas improperly denied her admission because of race will get a second hearing before a federal appeals court on Wednesday, after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the judges to take a another look at whether the school's race-based admissions policy remains necessary to ensure a diverse student body.

The Supreme Court said a three-judge panel on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals didn't properly apply past decisions when it ruled in favor of the university. The court, normally based in New Orleans, chose to hold a rare hearing in Austin, where the university is based. Appeals courts may choose to meet anywhere in their district.

University officials say race plays a role in only 25 percent of admissions and that the complex formula they use for the rest makes it impossible to know if race was the deciding factor in the case of Abigail Fisher, a Texan whose admission to the Austin school was denied in 2008.

The appeals court denied Fisher's appeal after she lost In district court. But in June, the Supreme Court ruled 7-1 that the appeals judges erred in not taking a close look at UT's policies, saying a court should approve the use of race in admissions only after it concludes "that no workable race-neutral alternatives would produce the educational benefits of diversity."

In past cases, the nation's highest court has ruled race may be used to determine admissions to ensure diversity and provide a better education for all students.

Fisher's attorneys argue in new court papers that such a policy is unnecessary at UT because most students are admitted when they fall within the top 10 percent of their high school classes, and as a result, the campus is sufficiently diverse. Fisher did not meet that standard, but had applied for one of the remaining places.

"UT has not met its burden of explaining ... its untenable conclusion that minority enrollment levels would fall short, absent racial preference, of the numbers needed to meet UT's educational goals," her attorneys wrote.

University officials said the policy was necessary because while aggregate numbers show overall diversity, minority students are not evenly distributed across all colleges and classrooms. They argued their policy respects the individuals' accomplishments and that a race-based formula was the only workable solution.

"Race is but one of many factors considered, in the context of an applicant's full file, along with her various academic achievements (beyond grades and test scores), her potential to contribute to geographic diversity, socio-economic diversity, cultural diversity, and so on," UT's attorneys wrote.

The challenge to the Texas plan gained traction in part because the makeup of the Supreme Court has changed since the last time the justices ruled on affirmative action in higher education in 2003. Then, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor wrote the majority opinion that held that colleges and universities can use race in their quest for diverse student bodies. O'Connor retired in 2006, and her replacement, Justice Samuel Alito, has shown himself to be more skeptical of considerations of race in education.

Black leader to Oprah: Put up or shut up!
Challenges TV star's condemnation of America as racist nation


Black leader Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is challenging Oprah Winfrey to put up or shut up.

Peterson, a columnist for WND and the president of the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny, or BOND, cites Winfrey’s recent “outrageous claim that blacks in America are still terrorized by whites because of their race.”

“Oprah Winfrey is sending a destructive and racist message to black youth,” said Peterson in a statement Tuesday.

“I’m calling on Oprah to back up her claims and give proof of blacks being terrorized by whites. She can’t – because it’s not happening.”

Winfrey made the remarks in an interview with the BBC last Friday on the subject of her movie “The Butler.”

The only way for racism to disappear, she said, would be for “older white people who were born, bred and marinated in prejudice and racism to die.”

Winfrey also alleged President Obama is the target of unprecedented criticism because “he’s African-American.”

Peterson said she should back up her claims or apologize.

“To the contrary, it’s black thugs who viciously attack and commit crimes against whites,” Peterson said. “Black criminals are also killing other blacks in cities like Chicago (Oprah’s hometown). Last year, the city had 500 black-on-black murders. When will Oprah talk about black racism and terror?

Peterson said successful blacks such as Winfrey, Obama and others “who race-bait are doing a disservice to the black community.”

“This type of racial demagoguery divides the races and encourages hatred and violence toward whites. It also shuts down honest and meaningful dialogue between the races,” Peterson said.

He noted Winfrey is a billionaire who “built a media empire with white people’s support.”

“The older generation of whites that she says need to die out in order for racism to vanish also watch her movies and purchase her products,” Peterson said. “Her success and the election of Barack Obama exemplify just how little white-on-black racism exists.”

He charged that for her “to sully an entire segment of innocent white Americans to a foreign press outlet is racist and an insult to her own country.”

Peterson said Winfrey’s recent comments are “far more shameful” than celebrity chef Paul Deen’s alleged use of a racial slur some 30 years ago.

“I believe that Oprah has always been a closet racist – she’s just free to express her racism because she’s no longer constrained by her show airing on a major network,” he said. “She should immediately apologize to the American public for her remarks.”

For the last 23 years, BOND has helped men and families with unique programs and services. Peterson also hosts a national radio program.

Columnist, author and radio host Dennis Prager said Peterson “has touched more souls more deeply than almost any famous person in America today.”

“Jesse Peterson exemplifies two qualities rare in any age, and certainly rare in our own: a passion for truth and extraordinary courage,” Prager said.

In his book “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” Peterson contends that the civil rights establishment has made a career out of the downturn of America’s inner city, promising solutions but offering only a Band-Aid.

He chronicles the failure of the welfare system, denounces the notion of reparations, cites problems within black churches and even condemns current black “leaders” in arguing that the crisis facing families is spiritual.

Thugs target N.Y. Jews in disturbing ‘Knockout’ game

A series of unprovoked attacks on Jews in New York City could be part of a disturbing new game among inner-city youths called the “Knockout” game or “Get the Jew.”

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is looking into a series of attacks on Jews in Brooklyn, but videos of gangs playing the game are cropping up all over the country.

The name of the game is to show one’s machismo by sucker-punching an unsuspecting victim and knocking them out cold. Video surveillance of young blacks playing the game have cropped up in major cities all over the country.

One Jewish man in Brooklyn told CBS New York that his 12-year-old son was attacked last Wednesday because he was dressed in traditional Jewish clothing.

“It’s clearly anti-Semitism,” he said. “One, full strength with his fist, whacked him, punched him, on the side of the face, full force.”

CBS reports that a teacher was attacked in Pittsburgh, and in London, a teen was hit from behind. On Nov. 10, a 78-year-old woman was attacked in Brooklyn.

Video also shows a 19-year-old Jewish man being sucker-punched in Brooklyn.

“He was actually holding an expensive camera. And they punched him and nothing was stolen,” Rabbi Yaacov Behrman told CBS New York. “And they’re playing a game: ‘Knockout.’ ‘Knock out the Jew,’ maybe. And they’re going around the neighborhood punching Jews.”

Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind said the attacks are not about robbing people, but about targeting Jews.

“I think there have been a total of eight [incidents of anti-Semitism] since September, middle of September,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said, CBS New York reported.

Media Blackout of the ‘Knockout Game’

It’s an infuriating example of political correctness: Most of New York City’s media outlets have sanitized the nature of a spate of unprovoked attacks upon hapless pedestrians — all recent victims of the so-called “knockout game.” There have been injuries and several deaths among men, women, and youngsters, as they suffered walloping “sucker punches” by roving black youths in New York City and elsewhere.

The knockout game involves an unmentionable subject for most in the mainstream media: black-on-white violence. To a lesser extent, Asians and Hispanics have been targeted as well. They’re white enough, it seems, for black youths playing the knockout game.

For those unfamiliar with the knockout game, it’s how some black youths amuse themselves, especially in urban settings. The goal: use a single devastating punch to knock a victim unconscious. And when they succeed, they invariably react with merriment and laughter, as videos capturing the mayhem have revealed. Could racism be motivating these black youths? Nobody in the mainstream media dares suggest that this might be fueling the black mob violence in what President Obama said would be a post-racial era.

The knockout game, to be sure, has been around a few years. It has been mostly ignored by the mainstream media, which generally airbrushes out the black-on-white nature of the mayhem. The knockout game, however, was the subject of a lengthy American Thinker article by John T. Bennett way back on July 14, 2011. Now, in light of the spate of recent attacks in New York City and nearby cities, some media outlets are belatedly acknowledging that the knockout game is indeed a growing trend – though they still tiptoe around the fact that the attackers are black.

In Brooklyn, some recent victims of the knockout game were Jews, which is finally prompting New York City police officials to state that “hate crimes” may have occurred.

Hate crimes? That must have shocked some at the New York Daily News, which on Monday ran an article that failed to note the generally black-on-white nature of the knockout game. Reporter Michael Walsh merely wrote that, “This disturbing game is a hit with goons” and is an “emerging trend among unhinged teens.”

And on Fox’s “The Real Story” on Tuesday, two “experts” opined during a panel discussion that the black youths playing the knockout game were possibly influenced by violent video games or raised in troubled homes. “This is about parenting at the core,” chimed in blond-haired moderator Gretchen Carlson.

All about parenting, huh? Fair enough. But that also raises the question of just what some black parents are teaching their little darlings, given that they prefer to attack mostly whites. It’s safe to say that the media would readily cry “racism” if the knockout game involved roving gangs of white youths attacking blacks and to a lesser extent Asians and Hispanics.

Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, for her part, gets it, unlike some of her colleagues at Fox News, which is the news channel that I usually watch. In her “On the Record” segment, Susteren raised alarm bells about the knockout game.

“Take a close look,” she said, referring to a video clip showing black youths playing the knockout game. “Do you know what is going on? That is young African-American teenagers viciously and gratuitously attacking a random victim, a teacher, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.”

“This knockout game crime is a trend,” she added. “We’ve had two incidents in the last few days right here in D.C. I know this is a very touchy topic because the game is regrettably popular amongst unsupervised African-American teens. No one wants to get near the topic of race. We also can’t run from this one.”

She concluded: “I beg of Reverend Jesse Jackson, Reverend Al Sharpton and even President Obama to step up right now and speak out. Your silence will speak volumes, but your voice could make a big difference. Don’t wait. Be leaders, they need you. We need you.”

Unfortunately, it would be out of character for these black leaders to speak out against the knockout game. They prefer to shame whites — not blacks — in order to achieve their left-leaning visions of social justice and score political points.

To its credit, the New York Post did run a piece on Tuesday exposing the unpleasant truths about the knockout game — and how the recent incidents in New York City and elsewhere underscore the pathologies of black thug culture. But that no-holds-barred article (“Thugs Target Jews in Sick Knockout Game”) wasn’t written by a New York Post reporter but by Thomas Sowell, an African-American and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, the conservative think tank.

It would be interesting to know if the knockout game is being played in cities and states with high numbers of concealed carry permits. But the answer to that might not square with the mainstream media’s anti-gun agenda.

As New York’s newspapers and online sites tiptoe around race in their coverage of the knockout game, news channels are presenting a more honest picture of what’s happening due to the visual nature of their medium – as is underscored by this segment from a New York news channel.

Wow! Some people really are suffering from a strong delusion.

The real point is what are schools doing interacting with Islam, a religion? I know it's Britian, and they are different than the US, but it's being done in the US with "Common Core" and other scenarios.

If these school officials were to say they were having a field trip to a Christian church, the whole town would explode in an uproar. A mosque, nobody complains, under threat of lawsuits.

If Islam is not the "Mother of Harlots", they sure do make a real strong case for it, because it's uncanny how that one religion has become seemingly accepted world-wide, regardless of the proof, with the bodies to prove it, it's a barbaric, murderous ideology.

Judge Requires Federal Oversight of School Choice in Louisiana
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/11/25/Judge-Requires-Federal-Oversight-Of-School-Choice-In-Louisiana
11/25/13

A federal judge has ruled in favor of the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice by requiring Louisiana to allow federal oversight of its school choice program, a decision that suggests the court’s acceptance of further involvement by the federal government in local school choice policies.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) said the ruling could lead to a lengthy review process for applicants that may open it up to extensive federal regulations.

As Breitbart News’ Ben Shapiro reported in August, Attorney General Eric Holder’s DOJ sued the state of Louisiana and its school voucher program which provided alternative opportunities to children who would otherwise be forced to remain in failing public schools. The DOJ claimed that the school choice program slowed the “desegregation progress.”

As Shapiro noted:

A full 90% of the children who benefit from the voucher program are black. The remaining 10% came from 22 school districts under desegregation orders handed down five decades ago, which prompted the DOJ to state, “the voucher recipients were in the racial minority at the public school they attended before receiving the voucher.” As the Wall Street Journal pointed out, “Justice is claiming that the voucher program may be illegal because minority kids made their failing public schools more white by leaving those schools to go to better private schools.” As black kids go to better schools, the schools left behind become less integrated, the logic goes. So keep those black kids in those failing schools.

At first, the DOJ wanted future vouchers to be distributed only by a federal judge. Earlier last week, however, the government decided instead to seek federal supervision over the school choice program.

Deciding in favor of the DOJ, Judge Ivan Lemelle said, “The Court has an obligation […] to take reasonable steps in the process whereby the voucher program is not being used to promote segregation.”

Lemelle’s decision requires the DOJ and the state of Louisiana to develop a reporting process within 60 days.

The judge also acknowledged the Louisiana state analysis that found the school voucher program actually improves desegregation efforts. He said he did not wish to disrupt the program.

“The Judge has indicated he wants both parties to determine a process that does not allow the scholarship program to send state aid to segregated private schools,” said Jindal in a statement. “The state already ensures that state aid does not flow to segregated private schools
.”

“We will draw a hard line against allowing the federal government to control the scholarship program and handpick schools for Louisiana’s children,” Jindal added. “No parents should have to get the President’s permission – no matter which party that President is in – just to put their kid in the school of their choice.”

According to the Free Beacon, the DOJ would require the state to provide information on all students applying for vouchers 45 days before they are granted, as well as information about students already enrolled in the program.

Student data required would include name, race, student I.D. number, address, and the student’s home public school district.

If the federal government decides, given the data provided, that a voucher would upset the racial balance of a public school, it could then request “the assistance” of the court to stop individual parent applications for their children.

Jon Riches of the Goldwater Institute represented parents who attempted to intervene in the case. He told the Free Beacon that the DOJ’s required procedure would cause negative consequences for the school voucher program.

“It’s clearly a burden,” Riches said. “It’s going to be impossible for the state to provide all the information.”

“Whatever [the DOJ’s] view is, if they think the voucher prevented racial integration then they could go after individual vouchers,” he added. “The fact that the DOJ is still persisting on seeking the court’s assistance in going after individual vouchers is a threat to the voucher program.”

Now look what this has turned into...

http://theweek.com/article/index/254458/duck-dynasty-star-phil-robertson-insulted-african-americans-too
Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson insulted African-Americans, too

Everyone is focused on his anti-gay remarks. But the suspended star also tried to whitewash the injustices of the Jim Crow South.

By Jamelle Bouie | December 20, 2013   

What happens when you turn a group of eccentric, rural Louisianans into television stars? They give interviews. And what happens when they give interviews? Sometimes, they say offensive things.

That's roughly what happened with Phil Robertson, star of Duck Dynasty, a popular reality show on the A&E network. In an interview with GQ magazine, the self-described "Bible thumper" made several disparaging remarks about gays. "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men," said Robertson.

And this:

It seems like, to me, a **** — as a man — would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical. [GQ]

Outrage came quickly, and in response, A&E "indefinitely suspended" Robertson's contract. But in all the hubbub over his anti-gay comments, observers missed his more troubling riff on African-Americans and the Jim Crow South.

"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," said Robertson, discussing his childhood in Louisiana. "The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy."

He continued: "I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people' — not a word!.... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues."

In other words, as far as he knew, African-Americans had nothing to complain about under Jim Crow, and insofar that they were angry, it was because of agitators and liberals. This all but parrots the rhetoric of segregationist politicians in the 1950s and '60s, who denounced activists and civil rights workers — like NAACP lawyers or SNCC volunteers — as "communists" and "outside agitators" who made blacks discontent with their rhetoric.

The truth is that blacks were angered by their situation: A life of second-class citizenship, economic deprivation, and state-sanctioned terrorism. In fact, Robertson's home of Louisiana was ground zero for the tremendous violence directed at African-Americans. In 1868, white terrorists tried to prevent a Republican victory in state elections by murdering 200 freedmen in St. Landry Parish. Overall that year, ex-Confederates would murder more than 1,000 people in an effort to block black political participation.

This fight came to a head in 1873, during the "Battle of Liberty Place," when the armed supporters of Democratic gubernatorial candidate John McEnery attacked state militia and drove Republican Gov. William Pitt Kellogg out of office. This bona fide coup was followed by scores of political murders and assassinations, as white terrorists worked — successfully — to re-establish white supremacy.

Indeed, in the post-Reconstruction period, Louisiana was a hotbed of racist violence. With 391 lynchings from 1882 to 1968, its only rivals were Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas. On August 8, 1946 — barely a year before Robertson was born — a 28-year-old Army veteran named John C. Jones was arrested and charged with "loitering" in a white woman's yard. That night, while waiting in jail, he was beaten, kidnapped by a mob, and tortured to death. As historian Philip Dray writes in At the Hands of Persons Unknown: The Lynching of Black America, "Both of [Jones'] hands were chopped off with a meat cleaver; then, as the mob held him down, his face and body were seared with the flame of a blowtorch."

In 1959, just a few days after Robertson's 12th birthday, a mob kidnapped and killed Mack Parker, a 23-year-old man who was accused of raping a pregnant white woman near the Louisiana-Mississippi border. As with Jones, the mob broke into his jail, but instead of torture, he was shot twice and tossed into the river. His body was found several weeks later.

These are extreme examples, yes, but anti-black violence was a regular feature of African-American life throughout the Jim Crow South, and especially in Louisiana. Robertson's recollection is a tremendous whitewash that would be stunning if not for the sad reality of our national memory. For as much as Americans celebrate the lives of men like Martin Luther King Jr. and women like Rosa Parks, there's little awareness of what Jim Crow looked like for ordinary blacks. The quotidian violence that defined the era — from forced labor camps to attacks on whole communities — has vanished from our collective consciousness, if it was ever there to begin with.

It's no wonder we don't want to talk about Phil Robertson's other, impolitic comment, since — when it comes to remembering the past — he's just like the rest of us.

THAT is what he said. Did Phil say mistreatment of blacks never happened, or anything similar? NOPE. Not a word. He said he never saw it. They say neutrons and electrons exist, but I've never seen one myself. Does that mean I'm saying they don't exist? Nope.

Yeah, race-baiting whiners. ::)

Church Displays Bleeding Trayvon Martin Nativity Scene

really ?  ::)

Outside the Claremont United Methodist Church is a nativity scene with a bleeding Trayvon Martin.  The California Church has turned their nativity scene "into a piece of art that comments on our times" for the last seven years.
 
John Zachary, the artist, told me the acquittal in July of George Zimmerman, who fatally shot the 17-year-old African-American in 2012, struck him as a worthy subject for Christmas comment.
 
For one thing, the backdrop to the Christmas story is the slaughter by King Herod of all infants in Bethlehem, a barbarous attempt to kill the Messiah.
 
Zachary described that when looking for pictures of Trayvon "one of the teenager lying dead on the pavement particularly tore at him. 'What if Jesus was lying there bleeding to death? I was kind of thinking of that,' Zachary said."
 
The title of the nativity "art" is called " 'A Child is Born, a Son is Given,' the wording outlined in red formed from a pool of blood at Trayvon’s feet."
 
The Church's pastor, Sharon Rhodes-Wickett, said the scene was hard to to look at.
 
"I found this year’s hard to look at. It’s hard to look at a young man who’s shot and bleeding to death. But even though I’m uncomfortable with it, that’s the point," Rhodes-Wickett said. "We have to take a look at the violence."
 
Response to the display has been "muted."
 
"I thought this would be more controversial, but I come to find out people don’t really like people gettin’ shot,” Zachary said with a chuckle. “They may not agree what to do about it, but they agree it’s a bad thing."
 
Rhodes-Wickett described her congregation and explained,  "Some people think it’s too edgy. I understand that point of view," she added. "I don’t know what the future will bring, but at this point it’s an annual thing."

Obama Administration Mandates Racism in Schools
1/17/14

The Departments of Education and Justice have teamed up to make the lives of students in tough neighborhoods even tougher. Framed as a measure to combat discrimination against black and Hispanic children, the guidelines issued by the Obama administration about school discipline will actually encourage racial discrimination, undermine the learning environments of classrooms and contribute to an unjust race-consciousness in meting out discipline.

Claiming that African-American and Hispanic students are more harshly disciplined than whites for the same infractions, the Obama administration now advises that any disciplinary rule that results in a "disparate impact" on these groups will be challenged by the government.

"Disparate impact" analysis, as we've seen in employment law, does not require any intentional discrimination. It means, for example, that if an employer asks job seekers to take a test, and a larger percentage of one ethnic group fails the test than another, that the test is de facto discriminatory because it has a "disparate impact."

In the school context, the federal government is now arguing that if a disciplinary rule results in more black, Hispanic or special education kids being suspended or otherwise sanctioned, the rule must be suspect. The "Dear Colleague" letter explains that a disciplinary policy can be unlawful discrimination, even if the rule is "neutral on its face ... and is administered in an evenhanded manner," if it has a "disparate impact" on certain ethnic and other groups.

The inclusion of special education students is particularly perverse, as special ed students frequently get that designation because their emotional disturbances cause them to misbehave in various ways. So if a rule against, say, knocking over desks, is found to be violated more frequently by special ed than regular ed students, then the rule must be questioned? That's circular.

As the CATO Institute's Walter Olson notes, the federal guidelines pass over one example of disparate impact with no comment — namely the dramatically more males than females who face disciplinary action nationwide. If we are to judge a rule's lawfulness by the disparate impact on males, no rule would survive the inquiry. Is it possible that more boys misbehave in the classroom than girls? To ask this question is to venture into an area the federal government would have us avoid. Actual infractions by individuals are not the issue. We must have group justice, not individual justice.

We've actually been down this road many times before. Various state and federal agencies have raised concerns about the large numbers of black and Hispanic students facing disciplinary action. Such concerns helped to generate the rigid "zero tolerance" policies the administration now condemns. Zero tolerance is a brainless approach to a subject that requires considerable finesse and deliberation, but the disparate impact rule is even more pernicious.

Under the new dispensation, teachers, principals and other officials will have to pause before they discipline, say, the fourth black student in a month. "How will this look to the feds?" they'll ask themselves. Will the student's family be able to sue us? A variety of solutions to the federally created problem will present themselves. School officials can search out offenses by white and Asian students to make the numbers come out right. Asian students are disciplined at rates far below any other ethnic group. Is this due to pro-Asian bias in our schools, or is it because Asians commit many fewer infractions? Oops, there we go into territory forbidden by the federal guidelines.

Another solution will be to ignore misbehavior by blacks and Hispanics. For classes with large numbers of minority students, this guarantees that the learning environment for the kids who actually want to learn will be impaired as teachers — reluctant to remove troublesome students — expend precious time on kids who are rude, threatening, loud or otherwise disruptive. Every minute of the school day taken up by bad kids is taken away from good kids. It's a true zero-sum game.

So the Obama administration's pursuit of group justice actually leads to injustice to individual students. Whites and Asians will be disciplined more than they merit it by their conduct, and fewer students of all groups will get the kind of classroom atmosphere that is conducive to learning. Even the students who get a pass on their bad conduct are disserved, as they will not have learned that disrespectful language, tardiness and even violence are unacceptable in society.

Everyone loses. Obama strikes again.

Obama: Some People 'Really Dislike Me' Because I'm Black

Obama says some people "really dislike me" because they don't like the idea of a black man occupying the Oval Office. But, he admits, that's not the whole story. "Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president," Obama told The New Yorker in an interview published Sunday.

They dislike him because he's black? Uh, hey Obama, your not black, you are mixed race, yet you insist on playing the black part, so how is that not racist on your part by claiming your black, when you are equally part white? So why choose to be black, when you can just as easily claim to be white?

It's rather obvious, it's a racist decision, that conveniently comes with certain benefits that "minorities" get, that whites don't get.

Cheerios is making waves with its first ever Super Bowl ad.

General Mills, which owns the cereal brand, got a lot of racial backlash for portraying an interracial family in the commercial at the bottom of this page.

“Cheerios is about families and love and connections — and breakfast,” said Camille Gibson, vice president of marketing for Big G cereals. “Our new Cheerios ad celebrates one of those special moments with a family that America fell in love with."

The Internet’s collective response prompted comments to be deactivated on the YouTube video.

'Racially insensitive’ lunch menu lands all-girls’ Catholic school in media spotlight

The “racially insensitive” lunch menu chosen to celebrate Black History Month that landed a private all-girls, Catholic high school in the national media spotlight has prompted upcoming diversity training for faculty and students.

The controversial choice of fried chicken, watermelon and cornbread for lunch at Carondelet High School in Northern California sparked immediate outrage and offense when announced on the school’s public address system Monday, the Contra Costa Times reported.

Principal Nancy Libby sent home two letters to parents last week apologizing for the “very unfortunate incident” and said a “communication breakdown” allowed the menu selection to be approved and announced before school officials could stop it.

“I’d like to apologize for this announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members,” Tuesday’s letter read, according to the Times. “Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate racial stereotypes, and we indeed work diligently to do just the opposite.”

According to the article:

The Black Student Union, which is run through De La Salle High School — the neighboring boys’ Catholic school — and includes members from both campuses, wanted to do something to celebrate Black History Month, according to [communications director Christina] Ditzel.

Libby’s letter was not specific about how the menu decision was made but mentioned that “adults made mistakes causing this situation and that we were doing our best to learn from those mistakes and to bring that knowledge to the CHS experience.”

“Chicken, watermelon, collard greens — these stereotypes of black Southern culture come from the same place where the N-word comes from,” University of San Francisco professor James Taylor told NBC Bay Area. “This is not like this food represents some heroic moment in African American experience. What it represents is the degradation and the sterotyping of African Americans.”

According to the Times, the dishes were removed from the lunch menu and Libby has planned “a diversity assembly for faculty and students later this month.”

Read the statement published Thursday on the school’s Facebook page:

Dear Parents, Students and Carondelet Community,

Carondelet High School has garnered significant media coverage this week regarding a campus announcement about the School’s celebration of Black History Month. Unfortunately, that announcement described a menu that was racially insensitive, and students, parents, community members, and media outlets are concerned about this insensitivity. We are, too. We would like to share with you the statement we are posting on our website, Facebook and have given to the media today.

We are saddened and distressed by part of our daily announcement on Monday regarding Black History Month. That announcement described a menu that was racially insensitive. Our normal procedures would have caught this insensitivity before it was planned or broadcast to our student body, but those processes broke down and the menu was planned and publicized without administrative knowledge or permission.

We are addressing the communication breakdown and using this incident to raise awareness about cultural sensitivity and diversity, so such incidents never again occur in the Carondelet community. Cultural insensitivity of any kind is inconsistent with the mission of Carondelet High School, which is dedicated to educating, challenging, and enabling young women to integrate gospel values in their lives.

Oprah developing race riot miniseries...

http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/04/03/oprah-tulsa-race-riot/

Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network is developing a two-part miniseries chronicling one of the ugliest and least-known chapters in U.S. history.

In Tulsa, Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer (The Help) plays a journalist who investigates the 1921 Oklahoma race riots, where an estimated 300 people were believed to have been murdered amid post-WWI racial tension surrounding segregation laws and the prosperous black community of Greenwood. According to a 2011 New York Times story on the subject, “The Tulsa race riot of 1921 was rarely mentioned in history books, classrooms or even in private…an episode so brutal that this city, in a bout of collective amnesia that extended more than a half-century, simply chose to forget it ever happened.”

The announcement came as part of OWN’s Thursday upfront, revealing the net’s next slate of programming — which also included the network’s first scripted movie, My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story. The period biopic will star Toni Braxton.

My Name is Love has the Grammy-winning singer-actress playing Love, a singer who worked with Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen, among others. From the release: “Whether it was the wild parties Tom Jones used to throw, how Elvis came on to her backstage at his 1968 comeback special, or her love affair with Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers, Love holds nothing back as she recalls the exciting events that make up her life…This is the dishy and dramatic story of a woman who had it all, lost it all, but never, ever refused to give up.” Love herself has an executive producer credit on the film, along with Winfrey and filmmaker Morgan Neville. The movie will debut in December.

Also in the works: Belief, a seven-part docu-series “exploring humankind’s ongoing search to connect with something greater than ourselves.” The show will explore various belief systems around the world.

Alabama Democrat’s $100,000 Challenge to a ‘Whole Bunch of Whites’ Backfires – Big Time

Last month, Alabama State Rep. Alvin Holmes (D) made some controversial and racially-charged statements that could cost him $100,000 if he is willing to put his money where his mouth is.

(http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/holmes.jpeg)
RACIST

During a legislative session discussion on abortion rights, Holmes speculated that members of the GOP would be supportive of abortion if their daughters were impregnated by black men. The elected official, who has served in the state house since 1974, then offered to pay $100,000 cash to anyone who could show him a “bunch of whites” who have adopted black children in Alabama.

Those comments sparked the formation of a group of families in Alabama who are easily able to disprove Holmes’ theory.

Faces of Families in Alabama is the name of the Facebook group dedicated to showing Holmes and the world that families — adoptive families — are not as racially divided as he believes. In less than a month, Faces of Families has earned more than 7000 “likes” on the social media outlet and photos are coming into the group daily, showing off the mosaic of families made up of all colors.

On Wednesday, Faces of Families in Alabama gathered on the steps of the State House to demonstrate just how many multi-racial, adoptive families were in the state. By all accounts, the rally was peaceful and positive.

After the group showed up, Holmes doubled down on his comments, telling a local television station, ”The majority of the white people in the state of Alabama are against adopting black children.” The group has asked for an apology from Holmes and some are calling for his resignation.

What about the $100,000 in cash that he offered to anyone who could show him a “bunch of whites” who have adopted black babies in Alabama?

It would appear that Faces of Families in Alabama met his challenge. One adoptive mom, Beverly Owings, who has a 13-year-old bi-racial daughter told the local ABC affiliate, “he should have to put his money where his mouth is.”

We did speak with Beverly Owings on Thursday afternoon and she confirmed that Holmes had been invited to attend the event, but did not appear. Beverly and her husband Jeromy, are parents to four adopted children, one is bi-racial children.

“This was not about money, but about changing Holmes opinion,” she told TheBlaze, “and about getting out the word about how many children are available for adoption in Alabama.”

A few hours after the rally, Holmes reportedly called into a local radio show where the Ownings were slated to be guests for 30 minutes to talk about the event. That appearance reportedly turned into a one-hour show with more call-ins than the station had seen in quite some time. We have requested a copy of the audio and will attach it when it comes available.

TheBlaze has made several calls to the offices and home of the representative. The state legislature is currently not in session and no voice mail messaging options were available on his home or district phone numbers. When we get a response from Holmes we will update this story.

Will he have to pay up? Watch the local coverage from WAKA-TV: http://www.waka.com/news/montgomery-news/Adoptive-Families-Rally-at-State-House-Alvin-Holmes-Responds--254654901.html

Obama, black leaders blast Sterling's alleged comments

Clippers owner will not receive lifetime achievement award, NAACP interim president says

4/27/14

Black leaders joined President Barack Obama on Sunday in speaking out against racist remarks reportedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, and urged the NBA to act quickly.

During a news conference in Malaysia, Obama called the comments — revealed in an audio recording obtained by TMZ — "incredibly offensive" and "racist."

"When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything, you just let them talk," Obama said when asked about Sterling's reported statements.

"The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation, that's still there, the vestiges of discrimination," the president continued. "We've made enormous strides, but you're going to continue to see this percolate up every so often. And I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why statements like this stand out so much is because there has been this shift in how we view ourselves."

The NBA, Obama added, has "an awful lot of African-American players, it's steeped in African-American culture. And I suspect that the NBA is going to be deeply concerned in resolving this."

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said the league was working to confirm authenticity of TMZ's tape, and promised a swift investigation.

**TMZ(that rag entertainment outlet) is the source of this alleged tape of Sterling's comments - for now, I am skeptical.

"All members of the NBA family should be afforded due process," Silver said Saturday. "Which is why I'm not yet prepared to issue any potential sanctions against Donald Sterling. We will move extraordinarily quickly. We plan to have this wrapped up in the next few days."

The Rev. Al Sharpton said unless Sterling proves it's not his voice on the tape, the NBA must move "today."

"I think that clearly the National Basketball Association must suspend him, or must say that, 'We're going to remove any kind of imprimatur we have on this team if he's the owner,'" Sharpton said on NBC's "Meet The Press." "You cannot have someone own an NBA team in this country and have these kind of attitudes.

"This is about the NBA saying that it's acceptable or excusable to behave like this," Sharpton continued. "And we've seen where sports can unite a country.  We just hung a plaque to Nelson Mandela at Yankee Stadium. He used rugby to bring South Africa together after apartheid. This is the exact opposite of that."

The Clippers owner, Sharpton said, "needs to state unequivocally, 'That's not me on the tape.' If it is him on the tape, [the NBA needs] to move today, or we're going after advertisers."

Sharpton's National Action Network is planning a protest outside Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday, when the Clippers face the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of their opening-round playoff series.

Sterling, the longest tenured NBA owner, had been set to receive a lifetime achievement award from the NAACP's Los Angeles chapter on May 15 "for his generosity, inspiration and leadership." But NAACP interim president Lorraine Miller said Sunday that's not happening.

"He is not receiving a lifetime achievement award," Miller told "Meet The Press."

In the audio tape published by TMZ, a male voice is heard asking a female associate — identified by the site as Sterling's girlfiend, V. Stiviano — “Why are you taking pictures with minorities? Why?” (Stiviano recently posted a photo of herself with Los Angeles Lakers Hall of Fame guard Magic Johnson to her Instagram account. The photo was later deleted.) The male then advises her not to bring Johnson to Clippers games.

"I will never again set foot in Staples Center when the Clippers are playing," Johnson told the Los Angeles Times. "I know where I'm not wanted.

"Something has to be done," Johnson added, "and if that means him losing the team, then that has to happen. The league has to come down hard and make a statement."

In a statement, Clippers President Andy Roeser said the organization does not know if the tape "is legitimate or it has been altered," and that Sterling "is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life.”

In 2009, Sterling agreed to pay $2.73 million to settle a federal discrimination lawsuit alleging he refused to rent apartments to Hispanics and blacks and to families with children in Los Angeles' Koreatown.

In a another discrimination lawsuit filed by former Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor, Sterling was accused of racism and employing "a Southern plantation-type" ownership structure. That suit was dismissed in 2009.

"Donald Sterling's racial history is on the record," Bryant Gumbel, host of HBO's "Real Sports," said on "Meet The Press." "It has cost him money.  It cost him his reputation long before this. And so I'm kind of amazed that anyone is surprised at this."

Clippers wear warm-up shirts inside-out to protest alleged comments by team's owner
4/27/14

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxziyB_VJGM

OAKLAND, Calif. – The Los Angeles Clippers wore their shooting shirts and practice jerseys inside-out before their playoff game against the Golden State Warriors Sunday afternoon in a protest against the alleged racial comments attributed to Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

The Clippers discussed the possibility of boycotting Game 4 of their first-round playoff series with the Warriors in a team meeting Saturday after the alleged comments were made public, but opted to play. The players haven't commented much on the controversy, allowing coach Doc Rivers to speak for the team.

As the Clippers players took the court before Sunday's game, they all tossed their warm-up jackets with the Clippers name on the front to midcourt and then warmed up with their shooting shirts inside out.

The players also wore black wristbands on their left arms and black socks as part of the protest. Sterling did not attend the game, but his wife Shelly sat across from the bench wearing black.

The Clippers players are contemplating making a bigger statement during Game 5 of the series against the Warriors on Tuesday in Los Angeles, a source told Yahoo Sports. The source said the players needed more time to decide what they wanted to do and would prefer a stronger statement on their home floor at Staples Center.

Rivers admitted before the game he was a little worried about how his players were doing in the aftermath of the report.

"You know, from a coaching standpoint, you're concerned," Rivers said. "They've been pulled in a million directions over the last 24 hours, and so that's a fact."

Rivers said the Clippers had tried to prepare for the game as normal as possible, but admitted the controversy had become a distraction.

"The mental preparation, on the other hand, I just – honestly, I don't know," Rivers said. "Because, listen, as much as this is basketball, this is life. And our guys, they have family. They have friends. And they have cell phones. And I can't imagine how much they've been pulled on and talked to and what you should do and what you shouldn't do and what you should say. And that's abnormal to a normal playoff game."

NBA commissioner Adam Silver was at Sunday's game and expected to meet with Sacramento mayor and ex-NBA player Kevin Johnson, who is representing the National Basketball Player's Association.

Silver said Saturday the NBA hoped to complete its investigation of the alleged comments within a few days. He would not specify any possible sanctions or punishment.

Video: Black Teens Assault White Student on School Bus

This week near Dover, Delaware, a viral video appears to show another instance of black-on-white violence among high school students.

The shaky cell phone video shows a group of black teenage boys punching, knocking down, and kicking a white teenage boy, leaving him dazed and confused on the school bus floor.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_Uv5disZtmo

The victim of the attack had been riding home from Parkway Academy School near Dover when the assault reportedly began. The video shows him sitting alone, facing front, when the attack begins from the rear – and continues from the side and the front of the school bus. "I didn't do nothing," he protests.

The student's uncle found out about the incident and spread the word on Facebook.

“This is a video of my nephew Alec being beaten by a group of teens on his bus ride home from school yesterday,” wrote Jonathan Guessford. “He was able to get off the bus at the next stop, 14 miles from his home. He went to the Magnolia Fire Hall and called the police.

“The bus driver failed to intervene AT ALL," Guessford continued. "She didn't stop the bus while the beating occurred. She didn't call the police and file a report. She didn't inform the administration that the beating occurred. Apparently, the bus driver called the school and stated that Alec left the bus early for no reason, according to the administrator that called my brother yesterday.”

The attack is part of a pattern of racial violence I have documented in White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.

Millennials see themselves as ‘post-racial.’ What does that mean?

An MTV survey finds that a majority of Millennials believe racism is fading, and that having a black president signals equal opportunity has arrived. MTV is ready to give them some perspective.

4/30/14
http://news.yahoo.com/millennials-see-themselves-post-racial-does-mean-215625909.html

A majority of young people believe racism is more a problem for previous generations than it is for their own. And most young people – 73 percent of whites, 66 percent of nonwhites – say they don’t see racial minorities any differently than they see white people, according to a survey conducted for the youth-oriented cable network MTV.

That suggests a generation that sees itself as “post-racial,” MTV reports.

Perhaps most strikingly, a majority of those surveyed, who range in age from 14 to 24, agree that “having a black president demonstrates that racial minorities have the same opportunities as white people.” Among young white people, the figure was 64 percent, and among young people of color, it was 58 percent.

“Millennials,” as today’s teens and young adults are known, are under the microscope on a range of matters, from their political views and financial prospects to media consumption habits. But on equality issues – not just on race, but also gender and sexual orientation – young people present a hopeful picture, though perhaps in need of context.

Millennials are the most diverse generation in history, and it’s inspiring to see how equality and fairness serve as their bedrock values,” says Stephen Friedman, president of MTV, in a statement. “However, that very faith in equality can also cloud their perception of historical and institutional inequities.” 

One example of this “cloudy perception” is the belief by half of white Millennials that discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against people of color, the network notes. 

MTV conducted the survey in preparation for a multiyear campaign called “Look Different,” which aims to prepare young people to counter what the network calls “the hidden racial, gender, and anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) biases all around us.” The “Look Different” campaign includes on-air content, including a documentary-style program called “Untitled Whiteness Project,” and social-media outreach.

The survey results on race are especially timely, in light of recent events. Last week, a Nevada rancher famous for his refusal to pay federal grazing fees alienated many supporters by suggesting blacks were better off as slaves. On Tuesday, the owner of the L.A. Clippers basketball team, Donald Sterling, was banned for life from the NBA and fined $2.5 million after the league determined it was his voice on a recording in which ugly racial comments were made.

In the Supreme Court last week, emotions were high when a majority of justices upheld a ban on affirmative action in Michigan public universities. An impassioned Justice Sonia Sotomayor read portions of her 58-page dissent from the bench, decrying “this refusal to accept the stark reality that race matters.” She implicitly criticized Chief Justice John Roberts, who in 2007 said: "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race."

MTV’s research included two surveys, one with 2,000 young people taken between Feb. 24 and March 2, and another taken April 4-9 with 1,000 young people. The surveys were conducted by David Binder Research of San Francisco.

The surveys found that while Millennials have a “universal belief in equality,” they experience the real world differently, depending on race.

On the statement, “My race is well-represented in the media,” 64 percent of white respondents agreed, versus only 33 percent of people of color. Some 63 percent of white Millennials agreed that “racial minorities use racism as an excuse more than they should,” while 52 percent of nonwhite Millennials agreed
.

The survey did not ask specifically about affirmative action, but alluded to it in some questions.

Majorities of white and nonwhite respondents agreed that “it’s never fair to give preferential treatment to one race over another, regardless of historical inequalities.” Among white Millennials, 75 percent agreed, as did 65 percent of nonwhites.

Another statement presented the “racial preference” concept differently: “Because of historical inequalities, it is sometimes more fair to give preferential treatment to one race over another.” Among whites, 22 percent agreed; 30 percent of people of color agreed.

On the question of how Millennials view their generation versus past generations on racial matters, there was a slight difference of opinion between whites and nonwhites. Among white Millennials, 58 percent agreed that “racism is more of a problem for other generations than it is for my generation,” while 51 percent of nonwhites agreed with that statement.

On the leadership question, 61 percent of white Millennials said that as their generation moves into leadership roles, racism will become “less and less of an issue,” while 54 percent of nonwhite Millennials held that view.

Mark Cuban Says We're All Bigoted, Calls Donald Sterling Ruling 'A Slippery Slope' In New Interview

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban talked about the NBA's decision to ban Donald Sterling and force him to sell the Clippers in a new interview at Inc.'s GrowCo conference in Nashville.

While he acknowledged that NBA commissioner Adam Silver "had to do it," he reiterated his statement that forcing Sterling to sell the team for making racist comments is "a slippery slope."

In a supplemental interview on Inc.com, he said that everyone, including himself, holds prejudices:

"We're all prejudiced in one way or the other. If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street. And on that side of the street there's a guy who has tattoos all over his face — white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere — I'm walking back to the other side of the street ... I know that I'm not perfect. I know I live in a glass house and it's not appropriate for me to throw stones."

Instead of kicking people to the curb, Cuban says those with racist or bigoted views should be rehabilitated with things like sensitivity training:

"It's part of my responsibility as an entrepreneur to try to solve it, not just to kick the problem down the road. It does my company no good, it does my customers no good, it does society no good if my response to somebody and their racism or bigotry is to say, 'It's not right for you to be here, go take your attitude somewhere else.'"

Cuban wasn't talking strictly in the context of the Sterling issue here, but his comments certainly apply to what's going on with the disgraced Clippers owner.

The "black kid in a hoodie" comment is the most interesting part of this because it's a crystal clear example of how racism works in 2014. Sterling was so universally derided because the nature and tone of his racist comments was so overt. We simply don't see powerful, public figures be that racist, which made him an easy target.

The assumption behind the "crossing the street when you see a black kid in a hoodie" statement — that young, black men are inherently dangerous — is equally as offensive. But it's also invisible. The impulse to stay clear of young, black men walking down the street comes from the same racist place where Sterling's statements came from, but it's easy to ignore as a society because it only expresses itself within our heads.

Here's the full transcript of Cuban's online Inc. interview:

"In this day and age, this country has really come a long way in putting any type of bigotry behind us regardless of who it's towards, whether it's the LGBT community, xenophobia, the fear of people from other countries. We've come a long way, and with that progress comes a price. We're a lot more vigilant and a lot less tolerant of different views. And it's not necessarily easy for everyone to adopt or adapt or evolve.

"We're all prejudiced in one way or the other. If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street. And on that side of the street there's a guy who has tattoos all over his face — white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere — I'm walking back to the other side of the street. And the list goes on of stereotypes that we all live up to and are fearful of.

"And so in my businesses, I try not to be hypocritical. I know that I'm not perfect. I know I live in a glass house and it's not appropriate for me to throw stones. So if I run into bigotry in organizations I control, I try to find solutions. I'll work with people. I'll send them to training, I'll send them to sensitivity training. I'll try to give them a chance to improve themselves because I think helping people improve their lives, helping people engage with people they don't understand, and helping people realize that while we all have our prejudices and our bigotries we have to learn that it's an issue that we have to control. It's part of my responsibility as an entrepreneur to try to solve it, not just to kick the problem down the road. It does my company no good, it does my customers no good, it does society no good if my response to somebody and their racism or bigotry is to say, 'It's not right for you to be here, go take your attitude somewhere else.'"

VIDEO: Al Sharpton Defends Racist Rant: ‘It Was Only One Jew’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4MlUtZ5F_Mk

Al Sharpton’s history of hate is so voluminous and well documented, where does one even begin?

The time he disparaged Jews as “diamond merchants” during the unrest of the infamous Crown Heights riots?

Or when Sharpton tried goading NYC’s Jewish community into an all-out fistfight, saying “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house”?

How about referring to the Jewish owner of Freddy’s Fashion Mart, Fred Harari, as a “white interloper” for seeking to expand his business in Harlem? (You may have heard of Freddy’s. It was also known as the Harlem Massacre. One of Sharpton’s followers also disapproved of the “white interloper” and burned the store to the ground, murdering eight people including himself.)

But those tirades were just Sharpton’s anti-semitic ones. He’s also sermonized on “Greek homos” and “crackas” as well as bombarded former NYC Mayor David Dinkins with a barrage of N-bombs.

So if you’re Sharpton and you’re confronted about some of your “greatest hits,” what do you do?

Scoff at the questioning and argue that one of your notorious racial slurs wasn’t, in fact, a slur because it was meant for just one Jewish individual.

No, seriously, that was Sharpton’s defense.

On the night of the glitzy Washington Correspondents Dinner, Daily Surge Publisher Jason Mattera asked the faux Civil Rights leader if he should be banned from television, “in the spirit of Donald Sterling,” for all the “racist stuff” he’s said over the years. Sharpton, recall, threatened boycotts and protests if the National Basketball Association failed to ban Sterling from the league.

If you can believe it, Sharpton challenged Mattera to produce evidence of racism.

And when that evidence was produced, easily (see above) – in this case, him calling Fred Harari a “white interloper” and David Dinkins a n***** – Sharpton ignored the shot at Dinkins, but ridiculously claimed that “whiter interloper” didn’t rise to the level of racism because it was directed at only one Jew, not a neighborhood of them.

“When did I call Jews ‘white interlopers’?” Sharpton demanded.

Mattera reminded Sharpton of Freddy’s Fashion Mart and followed-up with, “Doesn’t it take some serious balls on your end to accuse somebody of racism?”

Sharpton blustered back, “You went from one guy who paid people off the books and was wrong,”  before the “Reverend ” rambled on about ‘lies’ and ‘distortions’ as though he’s been misinterpreted all these years.

Of course, splitting hairs over anti-semitic comments is probably not the best position to find oneself in.

“One guy!”

In any event, who knows how many Jews Al Sharpton had in mind.  When an audiotape surfaced of him disparaging Mr. Harari, his initial reaction was, “What’s wrong with denouncing white interlopers?”  Sharpton eventually gave one of those half-hearted apologies (a bloodbath ensued at Freddy’s, after all) and then carried on with his profession of stoking racial strife.

As idiotic as Donald Sterling’s comments were, they were still said in private. Sharpton’s tirades, on the other hand, were delivered for public consumption.  And not only has Sharpton been rewarded with his own primetime television show on MSNBC, he’s a frequent guest at the White House and Obama officials headline his National Action Network conference.

Recently, the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP honored Sharpton with their “Person of the Year” award, an accolade that was originally slated to be given to – wait for it – Donald Sterling.

Watch the exclusive video above.

US Patent Office Rules Redskins Name Is Offensive, Cancels Trademarks

 The US Patents and Trademarks Office cancelled the federal trademarks for the Washington Redskins after ruling that the name was "disparaging to Native Americans."

Five Native Americans petitioned the office to cancel six trademarks filed between 1967 and 1990. Under federal law, trademarks cannot be "may disparage persons or bring them into contempt or disrepute" cannot be registered.

The office said in a ruling:

"We decide, based on the evidence properly before us, that these registrations must be cancelled because they were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered, in violation of Section 2(a)  of the Trademark Act of 1946, 15 U.S.C. § 1052(a)."

Even if the ruling is upheld, the team can still call itself the Redskins. But without the trademarks, anyone can use the Redskins name to sell merchandise. It essentially puts financial pressure on owner Dan Snyder to change the name.

The entire ruling can be read here. It includes a lengthy discussion, with expert opinions from lexicographers, about the historical origins of the words and its use as an offensive term over the past century.

The key part of the ruling says that 30% of Native Americans find the name disparaging. The committee describes this as a "substantial composite" of Native Americans, which establishes that the name is offensive:

"The record establishes that, at a minimum, approximately thirty percent of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS used in connection with respondent’s services to be disparaging at all times including 1967, 1972, 1974, 1978 and 1990. Section 2(a) prohibits registration of matter that disparages a substantial composite, which need not be a majority, of the referenced group. Thirty percent is without doubt a substantial composite. To determine otherwise means it is acceptable to subject to disparagement 1 out of every 3 individuals, or as in this case approximately 626,095 out of 1,878,285 in 1990. >There is nothing in the Trademark Act, which expressly prohibits registration of disparaging terms, or in its legislative history, to permit that level of disparagement of a group and, therefore, we find this showing of thirty percent to be more than substantial.


"Respondent has introduced evidence that some in the Native American community do not find the term “Redskin” disparaging when it is used in connection with professional football. While this may reveal differing opinions within the community, it does not negate the opinions of those who find it disparaging. The ultimate decision is based on whether the evidence shows that a substantial composite of the Native American population found the term “Redskins” to be disparaging when the respective registrations issued. Therefore, once a substantial composite has been found, the mere existence of differing opinions cannot change the conclusion.

"In view of the above, petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging in connection with respondent’s services during the relevant time frame of 1967-1990. Accordingly, the six registrations must be cancelled as required under Sections 2(a) and 14(3) of the Trademark Act. 216."

A similar ruling was made in 1992, according to the office, but the decision was later reversed.

The cancelled six trademarks all involve the "REDSKINS" name: marks on "THE REDSKINS," "WASHINGTON REDSKINS," "REDSKINS," AND "REDSKINETTES" were all cancelled. Two old logos, both with "Redskins" in them, were also cancelled:

Appeals court: Texas can use race in admissions
7/15/14

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court panel ruled Tuesday that the University of Texas can continue using race as a factor in undergraduate admissions as a way of promoting diversity on campus, the latest in an ongoing case that made it to the U.S. Supreme Court last year only to be sent back to lower courts for further review.

In a 2-1 ruling, judges from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that barring the university from using race would ultimately lead to a less diverse student body in defiance of previous legal precedent that promoting diversity was an important part of education.

"We are persuaded that to deny UT Austin its limited use of race in its search for holistic diversity would hobble the richness of the educational experience," the opinion stated.

The case began in 2008 when Abigail Fisher, who is white, was denied admission to the University of Texas's flagship Austin campus because she did not graduate in the top 10 percent of her high school class — the criterion for 75 percent of the school's admissions. The university also passed her over for a position among the remaining 25 percent, which is reserved for special scholarships and people who meet a formula for personal achievement that includes race as a factor.

The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2013. But rather than issue a landmark decision on affirmative action, it voted 7-1 to tell a lower appeals court to take another look at Fisher's lawsuit. That meant the university's admissions policies remained unchanged.

In November, the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit held a rare hearing in Austin where it again listened to arguments on both sides of the case.

University of Texas President Bill Powers called it "a great day for higher education nationwide."

"As a teacher and as president of this university I know the value of diversity of all kinds," Powers said at a news conference. "And our state and our nation won't advance unless we're training leaders in all parts of our society."

Between 2000 and 2010, Texas' population increased by more than 4 million with minorities, especially Hispanics, accounting for nearly nine out every 10 new residents, according to census figures.

The University of Texas has become more-diverse — but much more slowly. It's percentage of white students declined from 53.5 percent in 2009 to 47.7 percent last fall. The percentage of Hispanic students increased from 18.5 percent to 21.7 percent over the same period, but lags the 38.4 percent of the Texas population which is Hispanic. Black student enrollment has declined slightly since 2009 and was 4.3 percent last year, compared with 12.4 percent of the Texas population who are black.

Edward Blum, one of the attorneys representing Fisher, called the ruling "disappointing but not unexpected." He said the legal team could next appeal to the full 5th U.S. Circuit, or directly back to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"I think we need a little more time to more carefully study the opinion and weight the pluses and minuses of both avenues," Blum said by phone.

Fisher said in a statement that she too was disappointed "that the judges hearing my case are not following the Supreme Court's ruling last summer."

"I remain committed to continuing this lawsuit even if it means we appeal to the Supreme Court once again," she added.

The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund was among the groups that helped argue in favor of the University of Texas and its admissions policies. It called the ruling a victory but conceded that the disputes over affirmative action are not over.

"It's going to be a conversation that we need to continue and a difficult one," said Janai Nelson, associate director counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. "But what this decision emphasizes is that there are ways in which we can use race in a positive and progressive manner."

You have the Government fomenting this. They failed to get the war launched with Trayvon, so they are trying here also. Seriously, cant you see what is happening? The Gov is behind all of this. 

Stirring The Pot: DOJ Sends ‘Marshals’ To ‘Coach’ The Protesters In Ferguson

Is the Obama administration looking to stir up more trouble in Ferguson?

Stir-The-Pot-Public-Domain-300x300“Protest marshals” from the same Department of Justice division that organized protests against George Zimmerman in the aftermath of the shooting of Trayvon Martin have been deployed to the troubled city.

It is being reported that these DOJ agents will be “conducting training” for Ferguson protesters that will focus on “best practices for participating in protests”.  Local officials in Missouri hope that this will help defuse the situation, but if history is any guide it may end up doing just the opposite.

According to the head of Judicial Watch, the Community Relations Service of the Department of Justice “has a record of racially inflammatory rhetoric that is extreme in ideology and cynical in its politics”.  Could these Ferguson protests ultimately be used to take us to the next level in the inflammation of racial tensions in America?

What we have seen play out in Ferguson over the past few days demonstrates so much of what is wrong in this country.

The initial rioting and looting in the city was a prime example of the extreme social decay that is eating away at the foundations of our nation.  And it showed how rapidly the streets of our major cities could potentially descend into chaos.

And then the absolutely brutal response by the police was a perfect example of how our society is rapidly being transformed into a heavily militarized police state.

Now that the Obama administration is getting involved, who knows what is going to happen next.  According to the Daily Caller, two “protest marshals” have already been deployed to Ferguson so far…

    Two Department of Justice “protest marshals” are in Ferguson, Mo., to help train people taking part in demonstrations over the fatal police shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

    That’s according to Ferguson mayor James Knowles, who spoke with The Daily Caller Wednesday evening.

We are being told that they will be “conducting training for the groups on best practices for participating in protests”.

That sounds good, but as Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch has pointed out, this particular Department of Justice division has a troubled history…

    Responding to news that the Justice Department has dispatched its Community Relations Service to the scene of racially charged unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, the head of the Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch says it’s time for a civil rights investigation of Attorney General Eric Holder’s agency.

    “Eric Holder’s Justice Department is unfortunately not to be trusted on racial matters,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in an interview with WND.

    Under Holder’s leadership, he said, the department “has a record of racially inflammatory rhetoric that is extreme in ideology and cynical in its politics.”

    “The idea that this Justice Department could be trusted to mediate is highly suspect,” he said.

So precisely what kind of “coaching” and “training” will these protesters be receiving?

In a previous article, I discussed how Judicial Watch has documented the fact that the Community Relations Service helped “organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman” back in 2012.  This assistance also included spending quite a bit of money, arranging meetings between the NAACP and local leaders, and even providing police escorts for protesters.

Let us certainly hope that the DOJ does not choose to inflame the situation, because Ferguson is already essentially a war zone at this point.

On Wednesday night, police used smoke bombs, tear gas, flash bang grenades, rubber bullets and LRAD sound cannons against protesters.  You can see footage of some of the police brutality in the video posted below…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lnXnWB0AZgg

And it isn’t just “young punks” that are being brutalized.  In an Instagram photo that you can view right here, you can see the gruesome wound that was created when a white female pastor was shot while she was peacefully praying.

There is no excuse for that.  The whole world is watching what is going on, and they are absolutely disgusted with us.

Thankfully, the Governor of Missouri is taking charge of the situation.  Governor Nixon has put the Missouri State Highway Patrol in charge, and he is promising a change in “tone”.  The following comes from a CNN report…

    Gov. Jay Nixon said he decided to put the Missouri State Highway Patrol in charge of security because “at this particular point, the attitudes weren’t improving, and the blocks towards expression appeared to be a flashpoint.”

    Lately, the community of Ferguson, which has been the scene of clashes in the wake of a weekend police shooting that left teenager Michael Brown dead, has looked “more like a war zone, and it’s not acceptable,” Nixon said.

    Now, authorities — who’ve faced accusations that they’ve used excessive force in response to demonstrations — will be taking a different tack in an effort to calm tensions, officials said Thursday.

    “We’re all about making sure that we allow peaceful and appropriate protests, that we use force only when necessary, that we step back a little bit and let some of the energy be felt in this region, appropriately,” Nixon said.

That sounds good, but what is going to happen if protesters start foolishly throwing Molotov cocktails once again?

Will the police be able to show restraint at that point?

And how will the Department of Justice “protest marshals” change the equation?

Will they calm things down, or will they end up inflaming the situation?

http://news.msn.com/us/missouri-gov-nixon-declares-state-of-emergency-curfew-in-ferguson
Gov declares emergency, imposes curfew in Ferguson
8/16/14

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency Saturday and imposed a curfew in a St. Louis suburb where police and protesters have clashed after a black teenager was shot to death by a white police officer a week ago.

Nixon said that though many protesters were making themselves heard peacefully, the state would not allow looters to endanger the community where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot in a street. The curfew will run from midnight to 5 a.m. Sunday.

"I am committed to making sure the forces of peace and justice prevail," Nixon said at a chaotic press conference at a church that was interrupted repeatedly by people objecting to the curfew and demanding that the officer who shot Brown be charged with murder.

"We must first have and maintain peace. This is a test. The eyes of the world are watching," Nixon said. "We cannot allow the ill will of the few to undermine the good will of the many."

Nixon's curfew announcement came after tensions again flared in Ferguson late Friday night. Local police had earlier in the day identified the officer who shot Brown as Darren Wilson and released documents and video footage alleging that Brown had robbed a convenience store just before he was shot. Police said Wilson was unaware Brown was a suspect when he initially encountered him walking in the street with a friend.

Nixon said the U.S. Department of Justice is beefing up its civil rights investigation of the shooting.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who is in charge of security in Ferguson, said 40 FBI agents were going door-to-door in the neighborhood starting Saturday, talking to people who might have seen or have information about the shooting.

Johnson assured those at the news conference that police would not enforce the curfew with armored trucks and tear gas but would communicate with protesters and give them ample opportunity to leave. Nixon and Johnson were flanked by numerous local elected officials, including U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr., who urged Johnson to be flexible with the midnight curfew.

FBI agents leave an apartment building adjacent to a makeshift memorial for Michael Brown on Aug. 16, 2014, located at the site where Brown was shot by police a week ago in Ferguson, Mo.

Among the many people shouting questions was Malik Shabazz, the president of Black Lawyers for Justice, who said that members of his group and the New Black Panther Party and the Nation of Islam had been helping to maintain order and deter protesters from violence.

"It seems to be a tight curfew line that could be a prescription for confrontation," said Shabazz, who asked unsuccessfully that the curfew's start be delayed by an hour.

Brown's death had already ignited several days of clashes with furious protesters. Tensions eased Thursday after Nixon turned oversight of the protests over to the Missouri Highway Patrol. Gone were the police in riot gear and armored vehicles, replaced by the new patrol commander who personally walked through the streets with demonstrators. But Friday night marked a resurgence of unrest.

Local officers faced strong criticism earlier in the week for their use of tear gas and rubber bullets against protesters. Johnson said one tear gas canister was deployed Friday night after the group of rioters became unruly and several officers got trapped and injured.

Wilson, the officer who shot Brown, is a six-year police veteran who had no previous complaints against him, the local police chief has said.

The Ferguson Police Department has refused to say anything about Wilson's whereabouts, and Associated Press reporters were unable to contact him at any addresses or phone numbers listed under that name in the St. Louis area.

Wilson has been on paid administrative leave since the shooting. St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch said it could be weeks before the investigation wraps up.

St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley asked Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster on Friday to take over the case, saying he did not believe McCulloch could be objective. Koster said Missouri law does not allow it unless McCulloch opts out, and McCulloch spokesman Ed Magee said the prosecutor has no plans to surrender the case.

Witness Conversation Unknowingly Captured at Scene 'a Game-Changer'...

A previously unnoticed detail in a background conversion of a video taken minutes after the Ferguson shooting could change the course of the investigation into Mike Brown’s death.

The original video poster appears sympathetic to the narrative that Mike Brown was shot unarmed with his hands in the air. But he unknowingly picks up conversation between a man who saw the altercation and another neighbor.

An approximate transcription of the background conversation, as related by the “Conservative Treehouse” blog, who originally discovered the conversation:
@6:28/6:29 of video
#1 How’d he get from there to there?
#2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck
{crosstalk}
#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him
{crosstalk}
#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus - the police had his gun drawn already on him –

[there is dispute here whether he says "doubled back" or "coming back."]
#1. Oh, the police got his gun
#2 The police kept dumpin on him, and I’m thinking the police kept missing – he like – be like – but he kept coming toward him
{crosstalk}
#2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing
#1 The Police?
#2 The Police shot him
#1 Police?
#2 The next thing I know … I’m thinking … the dude started running … (garbled something about “he took it from him”)

This is terribly important because if Mike Brown had been shot, and he advanced towards the cop instead of surrendering, it would substantiate the narrative that the policeman shot in self-defense due to the fact that he was being threatened with severe bodily harm. This corroborates an account of the event given by a friend of Officer Darren Wilson:

    Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”

It’s far too unlikely that these two accounts are similar accidentally, having been from such disparate sources. The apparent witness in the background conversation is speaking with detail about the tragic shooting, and in a manner that runs contrary to the widespread version. Those who watch the video need to judge for themselves if the witness sounds reliable (but he would seemingly have nothing to gain by telling such a story.)

A third piece of the puzzle would be the toxicology report. If there happens to be anything found that might explain how Mike Brown might have been shot and kept advancing toward the officer, then the defense becomes even more believable. Unless someone is emotionally invested in an alternative narrative to the extent that one might ignore plain facts.

Sharpton: 'There's A Difference Between Robbing And Shoplifting'
"How can the young folk of the city believe in a system that would try to spit on the name and character of a young man who hasn't even be buried?"


 In an unabashedly self-referential speech to supporters in Ferguson, MO Sunday, activist and MSNBC news host Al Sharpton pulled out his best James Brown and shouted for justice in the name of Michael Brown.

To the screams of approval of hundreds at a "Unity Rally" at the Greater Grace Church in Ferguson, Sharpton discussed the video released by police showing an alleged "strong arm robbery" conducted by Michael Brown moments before his confrontation with Officer Darren Wilson that led to his death. "There's a difference between robbing and shoplifting," Sharpton proclaimed to a standing ovation of screams and cheers by the capacity crowd.

"I'm no drive-by activist. We'll be here until justice is achieved," Sharpton promised.

"I know they're gonna smear Michael, they may even try to smear the parents," Sharpton said, before turning the attention to himself and the explosive video of the robbery.

    "They're gonna call me names. But, I come from Brooklyn, a section called 'do or die, Bed Stuy.' I've been in the movement since I was a teenager... In all of my life I've never seen anything more despicable than while this mother and this father and the families haven't even had the time to bury their son, the police chief would release a tape trying to disparage his name. While his momma's still weeping, while the family hasn't even laid him to rest. How can the young folk of the city believe in a system that would try to spit on the name and character of a young man who hasn't even be buried?"

"The tape I saw," Sharpton continued. "A young man who may have been shoplifting. There's a difference between robbing and shoplifting.

Redskins Run Onto Field Before Game with Hands Up for Michael Brown

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air.

Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.

Following Washington’s win against Cleveland, WNEW learned the idea for the gesture came from safety Brandon Meriweather and cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

“We just want to show our supporters what’s going on in St. Louis,” Meriweather said. “We just wanted to show support.”

“That could have been any one of us,” said free safety Ryan Clark. “That could have been any one of our brothers, our cousins… When you get an opportunity to make a statement, and be more than a football player, it’s good.”

Report: Over A Dozen Witnesses Corroborate Darren Wilson's Account

Monday night, Christine Bryers of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted out that sources in the police sources have reportedly told her that over a dozen witnesses have corroborated officer Darren Wilson's account of what happened the day he shot Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen. See tweet below:

Police sources tell me more than a dozen witnesses have corroborated cop's version of events in shooting #Ferguson
10:30 PM - 18 Aug 2014

 None of the witnesses testimonies have been officially made public.

Officer Wilson has only made his testimony of what happened that day by way of proxy, not personally. On Friday, a friend of Darren Wilson identifying herself as Josie called into the Dana Loesch show and claimed Michael Brown "bum-rushed" the officer after assaulting him in his car.

“Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something,” the caller added. “The final shot was in the forehead, and then he fell about two or three feet in front of the officer.”

CNN later confirmed the woman's account with law enforcement sources. Autopsies have also helped corroborate Wilson's account of what happened.

Officer Darren Wilson Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor fracture. (AAPOS)

This comes after St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter tweeted out last night that a dozen local witnesses confirmed Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the Brown shooting story.

St. Louis City police shoot, kill knife-wielding suspect

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says officers warned a suspect multiple times to put down his weapon before they shot and killed him.

The shooting happened around 1 p.m. Tuesday  at McLaran and Riverview.  Police say the suspect tried to rob the Six Star Market convenience store with a knife.  Chief Sam Dotson said the store owner let the man leave the store.    A St. Louis City Alderwomam witnessed the man walking erratically around and called police.

When officers arrived, the suspect refused to put down weapon despite multiple verbal command by police.    Chief Sam Dotson says the man yelled at officers “shoot me now” several times. Witnesses also confirmed what the man said.

Dotson says the man continued to refuse the officer’s commands, approached within three to four feet of them with the knife in an attack posture.

Both officers opened fire on the suspect killing him.   No officers were injured.

I think 6 shots into Mr.Brown, two in the head, are excessive.
When an unarmed 18 year old is running toward a cop, and that 18 year old doesn't have a weapon, while the cop has a 9mm., a taser or pepper spray, and a belt of bullets or clips for reload of his weapon, the 18 year old isn't a threat to that fully armed cop.

One bullet usually stops an advance by an unarmed individual. Two bullets, when cops are taught to aim center mass, certainly stops an advance. 5 bullets to the body and two to the head, guarantee an unarmed 18 year old with his hands in the air, which if Mr.Brown was advancing toward the cop can be a standard command issued by a cop. "Put your hands in the air and walk toward me..." , is murder.

5 Things Christians Need to Know about the Ferguson Riots

 The St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri has attracted the attention of the world in the recent shooting and death of unarmed Michael Brown by a Ferguson Police officer Saturday, August 9.
 
Officer Darren Wilson reportedly fatally shot Brown just minutes after he allegedly robbed a convenience store stealing a box of Swisher Sweets cigars in a strong-arm robbery.
 
Since the shooting of the 18-year-old African American teenager, Ferguson has been the scene of Molotov cocktails, rioting, looting, and intense protests.
 
These scenes reminiscent of the race riots of the 60s and 70s in cities throughout the U.S., have many exasperated with the media circus and pondering what is at the core of the crisis.
 
1. Has media coverage contributed to violence in Ferguson?
 
For the past week networks like MSNBC, Fox News and CNN have camped out in Ferguson producing non-stop coverage. While some claim police behavior is behind the violence, others contend many mainstream news outlets are not only working hard to establish a narrative that isn’t balanced, but are seeking to try the case in the public square.
 
The Washington D.C.-based Media Research Center claims the media has created a narrative that the U.S. is a racist nation and its coverage feeds that storyline.
 
“We don’t have a news business in the United States,” said Tim Graham, MRC's director of media analysis. “We have a narrative business.”
 
Since the Ferguson Police Department released the identity of the officer who shot Brown, Darren Wilson, a white law enforcement officer, has been under attack.
 
CNN featured a report in front of Wilson’s home virtually identifying his address, The Washington Post named the street where Wilson lives and USA Today also named the community.
 
In its 5 p.m. newscast August 15, St. Louis television station KSDK showed video footage of the police officer's home. The NBC affiliated owned by Gannett, Co. Inc. issued an apology on Facebook.
 
“Yesterday KSDK showed the video of the Ferguson Police Officer’s home in our 5 p.m. news but did not mention the address of the home. KSDK immediately felt using that video was a mistake and pulled the video of the home from future newscasts and from our web site. We have not used the video since then and do not intend to do so. We apologize to our audience, to the surrounding neighborhoods, to the greater St. Louis community and to the officer for our mistake.”
 
2. What is the role of Black activists like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?
 
Members of the Project 21 black leadership network, some of whom are St. Louis residents and eyewitnesses to the unfolding controversy, are speaking out about continuing protests that have resulted in dozens of arrests.
 
Christopher Arps, co-founder of Move-On-Up.org and member of Project 21, says the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, are like putting fuel on a bonfire.
 
“We have a very strong and diverse clergy presence in St. Louis,” said Arps. “We really didn’t need Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson here.”
 
While there has been rioting in the late hours of the night since the shooting, Arps doesn’t believe it was a coincidence that violence broke out in the streets much early the same day Sharpton delivered a fiery speech.
 
“I believe his comments insight the riots we saw that night,” Arps said.
 
Arps maintains that what happened to Michael Brown is a tragedy and that cooler heads should now prevail until the investigation is complete.
 
“This tense situation does not need outside agitators swooping in fanning the flames of an already tense situation.”
 
3. What is causing the rioting?
 
Following seven days of chaos, Democratic Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon lifted the nighttime curfew and deployed the Missouri National Guard to help contain civil unrest in Ferguson.
 
Some call the deployment an overreach of power or an attempted to squelch the freedom of speech rights of protestors, as contributing factors to the violence. Others go as far to say that Ferguson is “occupied” by law enforcement.
 
“Although Michael’s death is sad and unfortunate, the emerging facts support the police’s version of the situation,” said Dr. Carol Swain, professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University. “By all accounts, the community’s response has been unreasonable and more importantly, unproductive for black people in America.”
 
Swain, who is also host of “Be the People,” contends national black leaders have failed the people of Ferguson.
 
“Black communities need leaders who know God and can inspire hope and change among the people, rather than fuel the nihilism that presently exists,” said Swain.
 
Protesters were heavily outnumbered Tuesday evening when law enforcement officers fired tear gas and stun grenades to help maintain peace. At one point, officials estimate police and media combined outnumbered protesters.
 
Importantly, police reports find that outside provocateurs represent a majority of those trying to push police to violence, while most Ferguson residents are peacefully protesting.
 
Others point to a demographic shift in the community that’s given rise to the rioting.
 
Ferguson, a town of about 20,000, can best be described as a community in transition. In 1970, Ferguson was 99% white, but now the St. Louis suburb is 67% black.
 
Out of a police force of 50, only 3 are black.
 
In recent days, some commentators say this unbalance of diversity has caused a racial divide in the community.
 
4. Who is Darren Wilson?
 
The 28-year-old police officer lives in Crestwood, a neighboring town of Ferguson, but has been in hiding since his identity was released. Earlier in the year he was awarded a commendation for his “extraordinary effort in the line of duty.”
 
While much has been reported about Michael Brown and the riots in Ferguson, little has been reported about Officer Darren Wilson.
 
At a rally that received little media attention, over 100 people gathered in support of Officer Wilson.
 
In less than a week, a Facebook page entitled “I Support Officer Wilson” has grown to over 36,000 “Likes.”
 
On the crowdfunding site GoFundMe.com, Wilson supporters have raised over $30,000 for his family’s financial needs, including legal fees.
 
5. How is the Church responding?
 
Local religious leaders have been actively engaged in outreach efforts since problems began in Ferguson.
 
At various times local religious leaders have attempted to disperse unruly crowds.
 
Five-years-ago, Joe Costephens launched The Passage Church that borders two St. Louis area suburbs, including Ferguson. 
 
Costephens has organized various evangelical churches that have been cleaning ravaged streets filled with rubbish created by rioters.
 
“Our goal is to be there for people without taking sides,” said Costephens. “I’m trying to save my own judgment until more is known.”
 
The Passage congregation consists of a diverse group of parishioners, some who grew up in the streets and others who are highly educated. They’ve taken to the streets seeking to deliver a message of peace and racial healing.
 
“The community is coming together, but that’s not being reported,” said Costephens. “The camera’s are missing people being neighborly.”
 
Area pastors are also leading a campaign to encourage people to shop and eat in Ferguson this week.
 
“Let’s show this greater part of our St. Louis community that we love them.”
 
Costephens explains that the people of Ferguson need hope and reconciliation
 
“The root issue of everything we are seeing is sin and I would dare say pride,” adds Costephens. “Always needing to be right, opposed to coming before one another seeking forgiveness and figure out ways to unite through this situation.”

I think 6 shots into Mr.Brown, two in the head, are excessive.
When an unarmed 18 year old is running toward a cop, and that 18 year old doesn't have a weapon, while the cop has a 9mm., a taser or pepper spray, and a belt of bullets or clips for reload of his weapon, the 18 year old isn't a threat to that fully armed cop.

One bullet usually stops an advance by an unarmed individual. Two bullets, when cops are taught to aim center mass, certainly stops an advance. 5 bullets to the body and two to the head, guarantee an unarmed 18 year old with his hands in the air, which if Mr.Brown was advancing toward the cop can be a standard command issued by a cop. "Put your hands in the air and walk toward me..." , is murder.



Cops aren't your friends to begin with. And to sit and charge one for no reason especially as big as that guy was was just stupidity on his part. A cop is trained to shoot until the person is down, not shoot once or twice. I dont like cops, but all the evidence in this so far, not the made up media drivel, but the real facts and eye witnesses all points to the cops story as the truth. Not the media's race war story.

Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source

 Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told FoxNews.com.

“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”

According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and his friend Dorain Johnson to stop walking in the middle of the road because they were obstructing traffic. However, the confrontation quickly escalated into physical violence, the source said..

“They ignored him and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move," the source said. "They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.

The source claims that there is "solid proof" that there was a struggle between Brown and Wilson for the policeman’s firearm, resulting in the gun going off – although it still remains unclear at this stage who pulled the trigger. Brown started to walk away according to the account, prompting Wilson to draw his gun and order him to freeze. Brown, the source said, raised his hands in the air, and turned around saying, "What, you're going to shoot me?"

At that point, the source told FoxNews.com, the 6 foot, 4 inch, 300-pound Brown charged Wilson, prompting the officer to fire at least six shots at him, including the fatal bullet that penetrated the top of Brown's skull, according to an independent autopsy conducted at the request of Brown's family.

Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in the fracas, and was left dazed by the initial confrontation, the source said. He is now "traumatized, scared for his life and his family, injured and terrified" that a grand jury, which began hearing evidence on Wednesday, will "make some kind of example out of him," the source said.

The source also said the dashboard and body cameras, which might have recorded crucial evidence, had been ordered by Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, but had only recently arrived and had not yet been deployed.

St. Louis County police, who have taken over the investigation, did not return requests for comment about possible injuries suffered by Wilson.

Edward Magee, spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCullough, said the office will not disclose the nature of the evidence it will reveal to a grand jury.

"We'll present every piece of evidence we have, witness statements, et cetera, to the grand jury, and we do not release any evidence or talk about evidence on the case."

Nabil Khattar, CEO of 7Star Industries – which specializes in firearms training for law enforcement and special operations personnel – confirmed that police are typically instructed to use deadly force if in imminent danger of being killed or suffering great bodily injury.

“You may engage a threat with enough force that is reasonably necessary to defend against that danger,” he said.

Wilson is a six-year veteran of the Ferguson police force department, and has no prior disciplinary infringements.

Massive protests have since taken over the St. Louis community, prompting Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon last Thursday to place Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson at the helm of security operations in an effort to calm ongoing tensions. The federal government is also investigating the death, and Attorney General Eric Holder has taken the lead – calling “the selective release of sensitive information” in the case “troubling.”

On Friday, Ferguson police released surveillance video showing Brown stealing cigars from a convenience store just before his death. Jackson came under intense criticism for disclosing the tape and a related police report as he also insisted that the alleged robbery and the encounter with Wilson were unrelated matters. Brown’s family, through their attorney, suggested the tape’s release was a strategic form of “character assassination.”

However, FoxNews.com’s source insisted that there was absolutely no spin agenda behind the tape’s release and that there were a number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) media requests filed by media outlets seeking it. Tom Jackson is said to have waited on publicly releasing it, and did not want it shown until Brown’s grieving mother first had the chance to see it.

“He defied the FOIAs as long as he could,” noted the insider. “A powerful, ugly spin has completely ruined public discourse on this whole situation.”

Star Witness In Michael Brown Shooting Charged With Theft, Filing False Police Report

Dorian Johnson, the primary witness to the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, has an outstanding warrant for a 2011 theft in Jefferson City and pleaded guilty for filing a false police report related to that theft.

St. Louis ABC affiliate ABC 17 cross referenced Johnson’s name against several records and discovered the warrant.

Johnson will be the star witness for any potential prosecution proceedings against Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Brown. Johnson was walking with Brown when the shooting occurred.

He has already done multiple media appearances where he falsely claimed Brown was shot by Wilson in the back.  He also has claimed that Brown never reached for Wilson’s gun, was “shot like an animal” and that Brown had his hands up and told Wilson he was unarmed.

Johnson’s claims helped inspire the protests and riots in Ferguson over the past 10 days, as well as the “Hands up, don’t shoot” rallying cry of the protesters and their supporters.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has details about the 2011 charges against Johnson:

    During the summer after his first semester at Lincoln, Johnson was charged with a misdemeanor after giving police a false first name after he was arrested on suspicion of theft. He later pleaded guilty.
     

    He was accused of stealing a package containing a backpack belonging to someone else from an apartment complex. When he was arrested in that case, he identified himself as Derrick Johnson and said he was 16.
     

    He is wanted for failing to appear in Jefferson City municipal court to answer to the theft charge, court officials said.

According to the Post-Dispatch, the president of the local chapter of the NAACP knew about the charges against Johnson, but the fact that he was guilty of lying to the police didn’t matter:

    Adolphus Pruitt, president of the St. Louis NAACP chapter, which has been encouraging witnesses to come forward, said Johnson’s false report case “doesn’t concern me.”


    “He’s been very clear about what occurred, and now we have … four others stating facts that support the statements he’s been making,” Pruitt said. “Why would that diminish other accounts that are relatively the same?”

Whether or not Johnson committed the crime, lied to police, or is proven false on his account of how Brown was shot by Wilson, finding out what actually happened in the Ferguson shooting will require more evidence and multiple eye-witness accounts. It is important for neither the mainstream media nor armchair pundits to act like they definitively know what happened in this tragic event.

Media pull out amid new evidence Brown was aggressor
Pastor: 'We have to know the truth about what really happened'


 Yep we did all the damage that we could, but now that the truth has come out were leaving. Because none of this is our fault. We just stir it up

Many news media services already had begun packing tents and television transmission vehicles as word circulated through the Ferguson community of further evidence that the black teen shot and killed by a police officer was the aggressor, resisting arrest after his suspected role in a convenience store robbery.

During daylight hours Wednesday and Thursday, the streets of Ferguson were open to normal traffic and businesses throughout the city were active, with protesters in the streets numbering fewer than 50 at any given time.

Media have been cordoned off in the parking lot of a large shopping center at the corner of West Florissant Avenue and Lucas-Hunt Road, less than a mile from the site of the shooting.

Joe Costephens, the white pastor of an interracial congregation, the Passage Community Church in Florissant, confirmed to WND that most of the riot activity had taken place in the three or four blocks around the location of the shooting at West Florissant Avenue and Canfield Drive.

“The Ferguson you see on the national news is different from the Ferguson I know,” he told WND.

“There’s an emphasis on families in Ferguson and on community. We are definitely an interracial community, and I’m proud to minister to an interracial congregation,” Costephens said.

“While things were going crazy with the Michael Brown shooting on Sunday, we had a pool party in my neighborhood, and it was half-white and half-black,” he said. “It was a beautiful thing, families loving one another, both races, with a sense of community.”

‘Don’t jump to conclusions’

Wednesday in Ferguson, the buzz was about a Facebook posting by local radio station 100.7 FM claiming the officer in the Aug. 9 shooting, Darren Wilson, would not be indicted because key witnesses said 18-year-old Michael Brown attacked the officer and attempted to take away his gun. Fox News reported Wilson suffered severe facial injuries, including an eye-socket fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun.

Wednesday night, nevertheless, the Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin warning that the hacktivist group Anonymous is planning nationwide protests Thursday against the Ferguson police shooting. The group’s “National Day of Rage” is expected to span 38 major U.S. cities, including Washington, D.C.

Costephens, who grew up in Ferguson attending First Baptist Church, said he has urged his congregation “not to jump to conclusions, because in three or four months, when all this calms down, it’s going to be the churches that are left to rebuild.”

“The thing I’ve addressed to the congregation is that we’re not here to make a political or a social statement; we are here to minister to people, and we’re going to wait until all the facts are out and let the system that’s in place decide right and wrong,” he said.

Open for business

On Wednesday, WND toured the riot area along West Florissant and estimated there were about 300 to 400 protesters in the streets. Most were milling about and occasionally chanting slogans, including, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” on a night when 43,085 attended the St. Louis Cardinals baseball game downtown and a heavy thunderstorm hit the city for nearly an hour.

Earlier on Wednesday, WND found the businesses boarded up after window damage from the riot activity could be measured in the dozens, with only a few stores appearing to have suffered fire damage.

It was a sharp contrast to the burning and looting common to 1960s race riots, such as the Watts riot in Los Angeles in 1965 and the Hough riot in Cleveland in 1966.

Costephens told WND he has “talked and prayed with many of the shop owners.”

“Many who are not yet back open for business are wanting to wait until things calm down a while,” he said. “It makes sense. If things are going to be rough, why repair the windows? So, they’re boarding the windows up and open for business. Some are staying closed for the time being, waiting for insurance money to come in.”

No justice without truth

On Wednesday, WND also interviewed Stoney Shaw, pastor of First Baptist Church in Ferguson, who has urged his community to “let the justice system work.”

“We have to know the truth about what really happened in the Michael Brown shooting,” he said.

“How can you have justice if you don’t have the truth? If you don’t have truth, then what you have is vigilante justice.”

Shaw added, “If the facts show the police officer went over the line, then he should be prosecuted.”

However, he continued, if the officer “was in the line of duty and the young man was not right in everything he did – if he was belligerent over what he did in the convenience store and it carried on down the street – then that’s a different story.”

Pt being that what we saw in Boston last year, and now in Ferguson, MO this year - could this be preparing the masses to accept Martial Law in that area if this event happens? Seriously - just imagine all of the CHAOS AND RIOTS that would go on there if this happened(just forget about all of the media driven race wars for a sec).

MTV to turn Video Music Awards spotlight on Ferguson

ast year, Miley Cyrus’s twerking, teddy-bear-filled performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards set off fierce arguments about race and cultural appropriation. This year, MTV is hoping to use its awards ceremony to start a different kind of conversation. Before and during the show, the network will be airing somber public service announcements about the ongoing standoff between law enforcement and the citizens of Ferguson, Mo., in the wake of the August 9 shooting death of teenager Michael Brown.

MTV’s spots are part of a larger campaign, Look Different, that the network developed in conjunction with organizations including the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, the National Council of La Raza and the Southern Poverty Law Center. MTV has a long history of activist-oriented youth programming, and the Look Different program developed out of a paradox that MTV President Stephen Friedman told me he saw showing up in MTV polling.

Stopping right there, i think we see the agenda...

CNN Now Worried Ferguson Shooting Audio Is Hoax

When CNN first broadcast the unverified audio of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, it was with all the sturm and drang of breathless breaking news. The audio led almost every hour and was the biggest story of the day.

What a difference a day makes. The language coming from "New Day" anchor Michaela Pereira Wednesday morning is much more cautious. "Do you think it's authentic?" she squeaked to two law enforcement experts, both of whom believe it is a hoax:

video: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2014/08/27/cnn-now-worried-ferguson-shooting-audio-is-hoax

Even if the audio ends up being authentic, the fact that CNN is now concerned over its authenticity and laying the groundwork to claim they were always skeptical, tells you how irresponsible the network is. The prejudicial audio never should have been aired prior to authentication. But this is exactly the kind of incendiary behavior we have come to expect from the news network that disgraced itself more than any other during the George Zimmerman affair.

CNN's timing of the release made perfect sense. The leftwing network dropped the audio the day after treating the funeral of Michael Brown as though he was a head of state. With the death **** concluded and the Ferguson streets quiet, CNN needed to fill the race-baiting vacuum with something.

This is the second time CNN has been unforgivably irresponsible with audio. Using unintelligible audio of George Zimmerman's 911 call, CNN falsely claimed Zimmerman had described Trayvon Martin as a "**** coon" before fatally shooting the teenager. CNN not only fabricated this evidence against Zimmerman, after it was proven Zimmerman didn't use the racial slur, CNN continued to lie to its audience and claim he had.

Snoop Dogg's White Face Gimmick - Media Is Silent

 Snoop Dogg has had many name changes throughout his career.  It first began with Snoop Doggy Dogg followed by Snoop Dog.  In the last few years he has become known as Snoop Lion.  But in the last few days Snoop unveiled his latest persona: a white-faced man named Todd.

Uproxx writes, “[Y]esterday Snoop Dogg unveiled his new white guy persona named 'Todd' to the world, which first popped up on Instagram, and now there’s a bunch of YouTube videos of Snoop/Todd promoting something called “White Guys Connect,” which is apparently a dating service for meeting ladies.”

 Research shows no website called “White Guys Connect,” which leads to the belief that Snoop Dogg/Lion/Todd is nothing short of a gimmick.

But the question needs to be asked: If a white artist donned a “black face” and promoted a website called “Black Guys Connect,” would the media explode with calls of racism?

So far, the media has been silent on Snoop’s “white face” antics.

Justice Dept. to probe Ferguson police force

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. this week will launch a broad civil rights investigation into the Ferguson, Mo., Police Department, according to two federal law enforcement officials.

The investigation, which could be announced as early as Thursday afternoon, will be conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division and follow a process similar to that used to investigate complaints of profiling and the use of excessive force in other police departments across the country, the officials said.

The move follows the shooting last month of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American, by a white Ferguson police officer who claimed he acted in self-defense. Brown, who was unarmed, was shot at least six times on the afternoon of Aug. 9.

Holder’s decision will represent the Obama administration’s most aggressive step to address the Ferguson shooting, which set off days of often-violent clashes between police and demonstrators in the streets of the St. Louis suburb.

The federal officials said the probe will look not only at Ferguson but also at other police departments in St. Louis County. Some, like Ferguson, are predominantly white departments serving majority-African-American communities, and at least one department invited the Justice Department to look at its practices. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the pending inquiry.

Ferguson Protesters Vow More Violence, Threaten to Shut Down Rams, Cardinals Games

Ferguson demonstrators stormed a St. Louis County Council meeting on Tuesday evening and threatened more violence and to shut down St. Louis Rams and Cardinals games if the officer who shot Michael Brown to death is not arrested or indicted.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that "protesters demanded the arrest of Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown to death on a Ferguson street five weeks ago, the removal of County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch from the Brown case, the resignations of County Police Chief Jon Belmar and Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson and accountability from the elected county legislative arm."

“If Darren Wilson gets off, you all better bring every army you all have got. ’Cause it’s going down,” one speaker reportedly said, according to the Post-Dispatch. Another speaker reportedly told council members, "You are ISIS to black people."

Speakers also reportedly "threatened to shut down St. Louis Cardinals and Rams games this Sunday, disrupt weekend grocery shopping trips throughout the area and mount massive demonstrations if the Cardinals reach the World Series." They compared officer Wilson and police officers to "war criminals" and the "St. Louis County government to the Ku Klux Klan" while drawing "analogies between the St. Louis region and Jim Crow laws."

Most of the anger was reportedly directed at "Steve Stenger, the 6th District Democratic councilman facing Republican state Rep. Rick Stream in the November general election in the race for county executive."

A grand jury is hearing evidence in the Michael Brown case and, after receiving a 60-day extension this week, has until January 7 to decide whether to indict officer Wilson.

Ferguson Protestors Seeking Tickets to Get Into Sunday Rams Game
Kevin Killeen (@KMOXKilleen)

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – KMOX News has learned Ferguson protestors are seeking St. Louis Rams tickets in the hopes of getting into the Edward Jones Dome and disrupting this Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

We first heard about the threat Tuesday at the St. Louis County Council meeting.

“It’s not going to a fun day Sunday at your beautiful Rams game,” one protestor said.

Speaking with KMOX hosts Debbie Monterrey and Michael Kelley on Thursday morning, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said he’s well aware of those threats and is working on plans to counteract them.

We are having extra resources in the downtown area for this weekend to address any eventuality,” Dotson said.

Demonstrators will be allowed to display their message as long as they do it peacefully, he said, but if they become belligerent, they will be shut down by police.


Now, there’s a Youtube video with Ferguson protestor Umar Lee seeking tickets to the game.

http://youtu.be/XdQ8gi-Wy5I

“So all of those St. Louis Rams fans who love justice, I will ask you to contact me and to donate your St. Louis Rams tickets so protestors can get in the dome,” Lee says in the video.

Lee goes on to warn “that game is going to be shut down to the justice of Mike Brown.”

Ferguson officer wounded after confronting burglars; suspects remain at large

Title should say, Ferguson cop shot while confronting looters

A Ferguson police officer was shot Saturday night. The officer, a man, survived the shooting, authorities said.

The shooting occurred in the 1000 block of Smith Avenue in Ferguson, near the new Ferguson Community Center.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said Saturday night that the officer was on routine patrol and spotted two suspects trying to break into a business. He said the business was in Ferguson.

When the officer confronted the suspects, Jackson said, one of them pulled a gun and fired at the officer. The officer was struck once in the arm, and was expected to be okay.

At a news conference near the Ferguson Police Department early Sunday, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar gave the same account of the shooting as Jackson.

He added that police fired at the suspects at some point during the altercation. But there is no evidence that they were hit. “We have no indication either suspect was shot,” Belmar said.

Belmar said he doesn’t believe the incident was linked to the Ferguson protests, and that he knew of no other incidents Saturday night.

In the background, chants could be heard from protesters, including, “We are going to shut this down!”

Many in the group of roughly 100 expressed skepticism at the police account of the shooting.

Dozens of police cars from numerous jurisdictions converged on the area after the shooting. The shooter is reported to have fled into nearby woods.

Police established a staging area near the St. Peters Evangelical Church of Christ on West Florissant Avenue.

Officers are still searching for the shooter, according to St. Louis County Police.

The shooting came at the end of another week of protests, arrests and violence since the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson.

Authorities had hoped to avoid further confrontations by canceling the weekly Ferguson Farmers Market on Saturday to prevent a repeat of last week’s encounters between protesters and marketgoers.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson issued a video Thursday in which he apologized directly to Brown’s family and to protesters who felt the police mishandled the protests that followed. But the move seemed to reignite protesters calling for Jackson’s firing, and tension increased.

Police Officer in Ferguson Is Said to Recount a Struggle

The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter.

The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.

This is the first public account of Officer Wilson’s testimony to investigators, but it does not explain why, after he emerged from his vehicle, he fired at Mr. Brown multiple times. It contradicts some witness accounts, and it will not calm those who have been demanding to know why an unarmed man was shot a total of six times. Mr. Brown’s death continues to fuel anger and sometimes-violent protests.

In September, Officer Wilson appeared for four hours before a St. Louis County grand jury, which was convened to determine whether there is probable cause that he committed a crime. Legal experts have said that his decision to testify was surprising, given that it was not required by law. But the struggle in the car may prove to be a more influential piece of information for the grand jury, one that speaks to Officer Wilson’s state of mind, his feeling of vulnerability and his sense of heightened alert when he killed Mr. Brown.

Police officers typically have wide latitude to use lethal force if they reasonably believe that they are in imminent danger.

The officials said that while the federal investigation was continuing, the evidence so far did not support civil rights charges against Officer Wilson. To press charges, the Justice Department would need to clear a high bar, proving that Officer Wilson willfully violated Mr. Brown’s civil rights when he shot him.

The account of Officer Wilson’s version of events did not come from the Ferguson Police Department or from officials whose activities are being investigated as part of the civil rights inquiry.

In the many accounts of Mr. Brown’s death, the most potent imagery has come from his final moments, when he and Officer Wilson faced each other on Canfield Drive. Some witnesses have said that he appeared to be surrendering with his hands in the air as he was hit with the fatal gunshots. Others have said that Mr. Brown was moving toward Officer Wilson when he was killed.

Few witnesses had perfect vantage points for the fight in the car, which occurred just after noon on Aug. 9. Mr. Brown was walking down the middle of the street with a friend, Dorian Johnson, when Officer Wilson stopped his S.U.V., a Chevy Tahoe, to order them to the sidewalk.

Within seconds, the encounter turned into a physical struggle, as the officer and Mr. Brown became entangled through the open driver’s-side window.

One witness, Piaget Crenshaw, said later that while she could not see clearly, it appeared Mr. Brown was “trying to flee.” Another witness, Tiffany Mitchell, said that she had watched with alarm from a close distance and that as the two briefly struggled, “Michael was pulling off and the cop was trying to pull him in.”

Michael T. Brady, who lives nearby, said that the altercation was “something strange,” but that he could not tell exactly what was happening. “I can’t say whether he was punching the officer or whatever,” Mr. Brady said. “But something was going on in that window, and it didn’t look right.”

However, Mr. Johnson’s description of the scuffle is detailed and specific, and directly contradicts what Officer Wilson has told the authorities.

Mr. Johnson has said that Officer Wilson was the aggressor, backing up his vehicle and opening the door, which hit Mr. Johnson and Mr. Brown and then bounced back.

“He just reached his arm out the window and grabbed my friend around his neck, and he was trying to choke my friend,” Mr. Johnson told reporters after the shooting. “He was trying to get away, and the officer then reached out and grabbed his arm to pull him inside the car.”

ISIS in America: Call to Action Says Attack Police, Officials, and Soldiers Inside United States

Islamic State terrorists are being urged to target police officers, government officials, and “media figures” inside the United States by ISIS leaders.

An ISIS spokesman said in an audio message to supporters that “lone wolf” persons affiliated with the group should target the three sectors, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security said in a bulletin sent to U.S. law enforcement officials.

The individuals should attack “soldiers, patrons, and troops … their police, security and intelligence members” in Western countries, the spokesman said, noting that the attackers don’t need to “ask for anyone’s advice.”

An English translation of the message was recently posted on a jihadi forum, reported NBC.

Around the same time, according to the bulletin, an ISIS supporter posted a document in an ISIS-dominated web forum advocating “open source jihad” and “lone wolf operations” by U.S. Muslims against “a list of potential targets, including military, law enforcement, FBI personnel, government officials and media figures.”

Officials said they’re not aware of any specific threat but warned law enforcement and FBI personnel and to take “additional precautions” when conducting interviews because of potential threats.

And it warned that the “lone wolf” nature of the attack means that supporters can carry out attacks with little warning.

The bulletin comes after Judicial Watch, citing Department of Homeland Security sources, said that four ISIS combatants were apprehended trying to cross the border into the United States at McAllen and Pharr in Texas.

The report came after Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif, a former Marine Corp Major and member of the House Armed Services Committee, said that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught trying to cross the border into Texas.

“ISIS is coming across the southern border,” he told Fox News. “They aren’t flying B1 bombers bombing American cities, but they are going to be bombing American cities coming across from Mexico.”

“I know that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas,” he added.

But while Border Control nabbed the terrorists, “you know there’s going to be dozens more that did not get caught by the Border Patrol,” he said.

A Department of Homeland Security denied that any people with ties to ISIS were apprehended.

Numerous groups are keeping watch for ISIS militants, including the Fusion Intelligence Center in Charleston, West Virginia.

Director Thomas Kirk told WCHS-TV in September that the group has been keeping tabs on classified information on how ISIS militants could be operating in the Mountain State.

While he wouldn’t reveal details, Kirk said that ISIS is training and recruiting people in the U.S. close enough to the state to be concerned.

There are areas in the United States that are not too far from here, that have very large populations that are being recruited for ISIS right now,” Kirk said. “There are people associated with Al Quaida, there are people on the Terrorist Watch List who do travel through West Virginia, whether it’s through the airports or through the roads.”

President Barack Obama and his military commanders were set to meet Tuesday with defense chiefs from more than 20 nations participating in the fight against the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq, though it wasn’t clear whether the threat to the U.S. would be discussed at all.

The daylong meeting came as the White House tries to tout progress in the U.S.-led campaign against the militants, while also girding the public for a military effort that could extend well beyond Obama’s presidency. Administration officials said the meeting would focus on military strategy and ways to bolster the campaign to counter the extremists.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the meeting would be an important effort to further coordinate and organize the international fight against the Islamic State militants.

"They will be working through those specific areas and defining specific contributions that these nations will make,” Hagel told reporters at the end of Monday’s meeting with defense ministers of the Americas in Arequipa, Peru.

Among the countries represented Tuesday will be Arab nations that have joined the U.S. in launching strikes against the militants in Syria, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. European partners like Britain and France are also participating, as is Turkey, a key NATO ally that neighbors both Syria and Iraq.

The U.S. has been pushing the government in Ankara to play a larger role in taking on the extremists, who are locked in a fierce battle for territory on Turkey’s border. The fight over the town of Kobani in particular has emerged as a major test of whether the U.S.-led campaign against the Islamic State can roll the militant group back in Syria.

On Sunday, American officials said Turkey will let U.S. and coalition forces use its bases for operations against the militants. However, Turkish officials denied that it had reached such a deal with the U.S. and said the two countries would hold deeper talks in the coming days.

“I am optimistic about progress that we are making with the Turks as they … further define their role in the coalition against ISIL,” Hagel said Monday, using an alternative acronym for the Islamic State.

Islamic State extremists have carved out a vast stretch of territory from northern Syria to the outskirts of Baghdad, where they have imposed their harsh interpretation of Islamic law. The fighters have massacred hundreds of captured Iraqi and Syrian soldiers, terrorized religious minorities, and beheaded two American journalists and two British aid workers. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled into Turkey from Syria ahead of the militants.

Missouri police preparing for grand jury decision

 Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights and stocking up on riot gear to prepare for a grand jury's decision about whether to charge a white police officer who fatally shot a black 18-year-old in suburban St. Louis.

The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial for the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.

Police and protesters have repeatedly clashed since the shooting, which prompted a national conversation about race and police tactics. Images of officers in riot gear and armored vehicles confronting protesters have drawn widespread criticism.

Many protesters want Darren Wilson indicted for murder. Grand jury proceedings are secret, but legal analysts say recently leaked information about Wilson's testimony to investigators may be an attempt to prepare the public for the possibility that he might not be charged.

The decision could be made public within the next month.

In the meantime, law officers have adjusted their tactics for interacting more peacefully with protesters while also honing their procedures for quick, widespread arrests. They plan to have a large contingent of officers at the ready, but have been meeting with clergy, community leaders and students in hopes of building relationships that could ease tensions on the streets.

The Myth or The True Story of Michael Brown, Gentle Giant



Ben Shapiro exposes the truth behind the media-created myth of Gentle Giant Michael Brown, the unarmed teen gunned down in cold blood by a white racist cop for the crime of walking while black. Except that every part of that story is a lie.

TRANSCRIPT:

Everything you know about Michael Brown is a lie. The media, the politicians, the race-baiters - they all told you the story of the innocent young, unarmed black teen, the Gentle Giant, murdered in cold blood by a vicious white cop representing the evil establishment.

Al Sharpton, who is always first on the scene when a black person is killed by a white – or, in the case of St. Trayvon of the Blessed Hoodie, a white Hispanic – described Brown as a “gentle giant,” too. Over at Daily Kos, a writer described St. Michael as a “big guy who his family called their ‘Gentle Giant’…built to be a high school football player – direct from central casting – but Mike was too timid for the sport. According to friends and family, he had never been in a fight in his life.” CNN, The Daily Mail – all of them called him a “gentle giant.”

And the man who deprived the world of this “gentle giant” was, of course, Officer Darren Wilson.

Originally, we were told that Wilson shot Brown from behind, after pulling over the “gentle giant” for walking in the middle of the street – a situation President Obama would later term “walking while black.” Supposedly, Wilson pulled the 6’5”, 289-lb. Brown through his driver’s side window, but Brown escaped and ran away from this mad emissary of police brutality. Wilson then allegedly shot the fleeing Brown from behind, at which point Brown turned around, raised his hands in the universal sign of surrender, and perished in a hail of bullets.

Here's the reality. All of this was a lie.

The first crack in the myth of St. Michael, the Gentle Giant, came in the form of a security tape, taken just minutes before the fatal confrontation with Officer Wilson.

According to police reports, the Gentle Giant, who had never been in a fight and was too timid to play football, grabbed a small attendant and slammed him into a display case. He also stole a box of Swisher Sweets, which are cheap cigars.

The next crack in the St. Michael story,  The New York Times reported that Michael Brown “was no angel.” The report explained that he “dabbled in drugs and alcohol” – which, presumably, is why he stole a cheap box of Swisher Sweets from that convenience store, since Swisher Sweets are routinely used to smoke pot. Indeed, Brown’s system was chock full of THC during the incident with Officer Wilson, the autopsy showed.

The New York Times report also explained that Brown “had taken to rapping in recent months, producing lyrics that were by turns contemplative and vulgar.”

Here’s a sampling of St. Michael’s music, culled by Gateway Pundit:

    My favorite part is when that body hits the ground.


    I soak em up like I’m wringing out a sponge

    Talking down make me shoot off your whole tongue

The words of the blessed saint.

The media and politicians cried bloody murder when this information began to tarnish the candle-lit altar they'd built for St. Michael – just because St. Michael had strong-arm robbed a convenience store, done drugs, and cut some vile rap videos didn’t mean he deserved to be shot!

Which, of course, was true. But the rest of the mythical tale of the martyrdom of St. Michael began falling apart, as well.

Officer Wilson’s side of the story began to come out, in dribs and drabs: after pulling Brown over, Wilson said, Wilson tried to get out of his car – Brown shut the door on him, then pushed himself through the driver’s side window. He went for Wilson’s weapon, whereupon Wilson fired the gun in the vehicle. Brown ran. Wilson chased him. Brown then turned around and ran toward Wilson, whereupon Wilson shot him several times.

According to the Washington Post, “more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony…that supports Wilson’s account of the events….blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests – also support Wilson’s account of the shooting, the Post sources said.”

Now, a new autopsy report revealed by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch – the same newspaper that originally termed Brown a “Gentle Giant” – showed that Brown’s body had a “graze wound” on his thumb; the wound contained matter “consistent with products that are discharged from the barrel of a firearm.” That can only happen at close range – so close, in fact, that there was no stippling – a patterning of gunpowder that will not appear within an inch of the gun barrel. In other words, as San Francisco medical examiner Dr. Judy Melinek said, “this guy is reaching for the gun.”

The autopsy backs up the altercation at the car as well – Brown’s skin was found on the exterior of the vehicle.  CNN reports that blood from Michael Brown was found on Wilson’s uniform, police car, and gun.

The autopsy even gives shows that Brown was shot with his hands up. According to the autopsy report, the gunshot wound to St. Michael’s “upper dorsal right arm” demonstrated that the direction of the shot was “slightly upward, backward and leftward.” That means, according to Melinek, the shot “traveled from the back of the arm to the inner arm, which means Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson.”

The rage continues, of course, because facts don't matter when myths have already taken root. Benjamin Crump, the Brown family lawyer - he was also the Martin family attorney - said that “family and supporters will not be persuaded by the autopsy report or eyewitness statements,” according to the Washington Post. And, of course, local politicians have pledged that the evidence won’t change anything.

Meanwhile, the disciples of Michael Brown pay tribute to his Gentle Giantness by fighting over how to capitalize on his supposed martyrdom. Michael Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, reportedly got into a fight with Brown’s grandmother and cousin when she found them selling Michael Brown merchandise. The altercation ended, apparently, with another unnamed person hitting Brown’s cousin in the face with a pipe or pole, resulting in his hospitalization. The suspect then stole a box from the scene containing some $1,400.

But never mind – the legacy of Michael Brown, Gentle Giant, will go on. Another martyr has joined the Racial Testament. Another fake black mark on white racist police forces everywhere. And the left’s aggressive construction of the myth of St. Michael the Gentle Giant ensures that more young black men will see police as the enemy, that confrontations will escalate, and that the left will have many more future opportunities to add to their perverse canon.

Charlie Rangel Says Some Republicans 'Believe That Slavery Isn't Over'.

Veteran Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) had some harsh words for the Republican Party during a Thursday campaign rally for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).

As he has done repeatedly before, Rangel compared some members of the GOP to confederates from the Civil War era. But at the Thursday evening event, he added that they "believe that slavery isn't over."

"We have to win. We have to be able to send a national message with Andrew Cuomo. And the thing is: Everything we believe in — everything we believe in — they hate. They don't disagree — they hate! They think if you didn't come from Europe 30 years ago, you didn't even make it. Some of them believe that slavery isn't over and they and think they won the Civil War!" Rangel shouted.

In contrast, Rangel said the Democratic Party is doing "God's work" on issues important to the American people.

"And so what we have to do is send a collective voice," he said of the upcoming midterm elections. "Everything we're doing is God's work: education, healthcare, affordable housing, [protecting against] discrimination, paying people the minimum wage."

Ferguson protest leaders seek heads-up on decision

Activists asked Wednesday for advance notice before prosecutors announce whether a Ferguson police officer will face charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown, saying they can help prevent widespread violence if they have 48 hours to prepare for protests.

Members of the Don't Shoot Coalition said at a news conference that they want to "de-escalate violence without de-escalating action" once a grand jury decides whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, for the Aug. 9 shooting of Brown, who was black.

The coalition represents more than 50 organizations including union workers, clergy, anti-war activists and black empowerment groups. Its members are leaders of the protests that erupted across the region after Brown's death and have continued in the three months since.

"Everyone around the United States and much of the world is looking at St. Louis," said Michael McPhearson, executive director of Veterans for Peace. "There's much anticipation as to what happens next."

Demonstrators on Wednesday criticized the use of tear gas, riot equipment and armored vehicles by county and local police in the early days of the protests. The heavy initial response led Gov. Jay Nixon to summon the National Guard and temporarily put the Missouri Highway Patrol in charge of Ferguson crowd control.

Ed Magee, a spokesman for St. Louis County Attorney Bob McCulloch, who is overseeing the grand jury investigation, met with McPhearson and attorney Denise Lieberman earlier Wednesday and said the coalition's request for 48 hours' notice of a grand jury decision is "being considered."

The grand jury was expected to hear evidence in Brown's case until mid-November, but McCulloch said Tuesday night that its work could continue for several more weeks. Brown, 18, was unarmed when Wilson encountered him walking in the street with a friend. A scuffle ensued and Brown was shot multiple times. Witness accounts of what happened varied, with some saying they saw Brown raise his hands as if in surrender.

"After the verdict, no matter what it is, people are going to pour into the street - either in celebration or in rage," said Montague Simmons, chairman of the Organization for Black Struggle. "It's in the best interest of the public, the police and elected officials who control the actions of the police to work together to protect the rights of people to engage in civil disobedience and expression of their First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly."

Organizers have created 19 "rules of engagement" they want police to follow, including calls to treat protesters as "citizens and not enemy combatants."

County police Chief Jon Belmar earlier this week reiterated that police do not intend to impede peaceful dissent but said he wouldn't take anything off the table when asked about the use of tear gas and other tactics.

"I have a responsibility...to make sure that everybody walks out of this on the other end," he said.

Greatest show on Earth? 5 agencies to meet Michael Brown's parents
Prior to pleading case to U.N. Committee Against Torture


The parents of Michael Brown will meet with about 20 representatives of the Obama administration in Geneva, Switzerland, before pleading their case to the United Nations Committee Against Torture, according to the director of the nonprofit group organizing their trip.

 ::)

Ejim Dike, executive director of the U.S. Human Rights Network, told WND that Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden – the parents of the black teen who was killed in a confrontation in August with a white police offer in Ferguson, Missouri – will meet Nov. 11 in Geneva with the U.S. officials.

The parents, who demand the immediate arrest of Officer Darren Wilson, say their “goal is not only to achieve justice in Ferguson, but to unite governments around the world against the human rights violations that result from racial profiling and police violence.”

The officials, who also will be in Geneva to speak to the U.N. Committee Against Torture, Dike said, are from the U.S. Department of Justice, Department of Education, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense and the State Department.

After meeting the U.S. officials, Brown’s parents will address the 53rd Session of the United Nations Committee Against Torture, Nov. 12 and 13.

At issue is U.S. compliance with the U.N. Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, which was passed by the U.N. in 1984 and ratified by the U.S. in 1994.

The parents’ U.N. invitation is the result of a 13-page position paper written by Saint Louis University Law School assistant professor Justin Hansford with the support of  left-leaning advocacy groups, Hands Up United, the Organization for Black Struggle and Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment.

The U.N. panel, Dike told WND, realizes “the issue of gun violence and police violence especially directed at black and brown people in this country is really a grave human rights concern.”

The committee consists of so-called independent legal experts from countries such as the Republic of Georgia and communist China. The panel’s two members from the U.S. have recused themselves from hearing the case.

Hansford’s paper characterizes the Aug. 9 shooting in Ferguson as the murder by a white police officer of an innocent black youth who had his arms raised in an attempt to surrender.

However, the findings of the grand jury considering whether or not Wilson should be prosecuted have leaked out, and they indicate the officer was acting in self-defense and won’t be charged.

The U.S. already has been reviewed twice this year for alleged noncompliance with U.N. treaties on civil and political rights and the elimination of racial discrimination. The mother of Trayvon Martin, the black teen killed by a neighborhood watchman in Florida, and the father of Jordan Davis, a Florida black teen fatally shot over loud music, participated in the reviews in August.

Hansford’s position paper calls among other things for the arrest of Wilson for the alleged murder of their son, the resignation of Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson and an apology from Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon for alleged intimidation and excessive police force against those seeking to protest the Brown shooting.

The document further calls on the U.N. to demand that Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice conduct “a nationwide investigation of systematic police brutality and harassment in brown and black communities, and youth in particular.”

A website, FergusonToGeneva.com, makes available the Hansford report and accepts donations to defray the costs of the trip to Geneva.

As WND columnist Jack Cashill has noted, the leaks of grand jury findings appear to be an attempt by the Justice Department to prepare the public for the likelihood that Wilson will not be charged in Brown’s death.

An Oct. 17 New York Times story, for example, shows Wilson’s version of events inside the officer’s vehicle lines up with the forensic evidence.

As Wilson told the story, Brown reached for the gun, and it was fired twice, with one shot striking Brown on the hand. In the scuffle, Brown “punched and scratched [Wilson] repeatedly.”

Forensic tests meanwhile showed Brown’s blood on the gun, on Wilson’s clothes and on the interior door panel.

The autopsy also indicated Brown did not have his hand’s up in surrender, discrediting a crucial claim that became a central theme of protesters.

Why Michael Brown’s Mom Could Be Charged With Felony Armed Robbery

Police are weighing felony armed robbery charges against Michael Brown’s mother after she allegedly attacked a group of people in a Ferguson, Missouri, parking lot because they were selling pro-Michael Brown T-shirts.

Police are reviewing allegations that Lesley McSpadden enlisted a group of people to beat the group selling the T-shirts and rob them of the merchandise. One person was allegedly beaten with a pipe and another victim had to be hospitalized.

McSpadden and “a large group of about 20-30 subjects” rolled up and “rushed” the vendors. One of the beating victims was reportedly McSpadden’s former mother-in-law, Pearlie Gordon.

“You can’t sell this s**t,” the mother said, acceding to the police report.

Gordon reportedly refused to back down, stating that “unless McSpadden could produce documentation stating that she had a patent on her son’s name (Gordon) was going to continue to sell her merchandise,” the report said.

Police say more than $1,500 in merchandise and $400 in cash was stolen by the suspects.

Police will decide whether or not to bring charges against McSpadden and the other suspects following a criminal investigation.

VIDEO>>> ‘Peaceful’ #Ferguson Protesters Beat College Student & Chase Him Down Street Screaming

‘Peaceful’ ya right  ::)

The Ferguson protest movement held a meeting tonight at St. Mark Family Church on Glen Owen Drive.

The protesters took time out from their meeting to beat a college student.
Then they chased him down the street screaming.

Finally the man was rescued at the local Walgreens.
mike brown fb
From the Justice for Mike Brown Facebook page:

    The meeting we had earlier at the church at 9950 Glen Owen Dr, St Louis, MO, alot of us attended the meeting but what happened with the attack on a peaceful protester was wrong and should have been handled a different way. Some of us already know that no live-streaming is allowed at the meeting and but when they told him to stop live streaming he probably didn’t hear or understand and when everbody just rushed him and told to stop live streaming and get the F××k out and then all of sudden he gets jumped and attacked. He is a student at UMSL college and he has been out there with us protesting on regular nights. Some of us know who he is, his name is Chris Schaefer, and NO, he’s not working with the police, he is on our side. But like I said again, for some of yall to just attack him having him, running down Chambers St towards West Florissant to the Walgreens scared for his life and he steady screaming crying and flagging down cars asking for help, but he only gets help when he runs inside the Walgreens, that was wrong and F××ked up it really was he was they took him to the hospital by ambulance to be treated for injuries. That’s making us look bad, the ones that come out to protest peacefully, smh, and he is white but that don’t mean to attack him like that! We have supporters of all races!

Radical Hamas supporter Bassem Masri defended the attack.

UPDATE: Live-streamer Chris Schaefer posted a video from his hospital bed in the emergency room. Schaefer said he got hit “pretty badly” in his head, hands, and sides. He’s asking for donations to pay for his CAT Scan.

Exclusive – Ferguson Insider: Jury Decision Expected to Bring “Riots Worse than the LA Riots”

In an exclusive interview with Freedom Outpost, a local firefighter in the Ferguson, Missouri area told us that they are on high alert as the decision of whether or not to charge Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown comes out on Sunday. The fireman said, “We have been told to expect riots worse than the LA riots.”

According to the firefighter, the grand jury will release whether or not Wilson will be charged on Sunday. He went on to tell us, “We have just been told at work the decision on the Ferguson shooting is coming out Sunday. State, federal, local law enforcement and the (National) Guard will be in the area.”

In referencing the expectation of riots worse than those in Los Angeles, the fireman said, “Okay it’s getting deep here in Missouri now. Our department was contacted and all fire and EMS are being contacted to get ambulances and fire crew ready to respond state wide over Ferguson. With less than an hour’s notice, so we are in it deep”

He also told us that the St. Louis area already had four Blackhawk helicopters flying around Ferguson. “Military air power flying the area now.”

Additionally, he said a large federal corporate agency told their employees to “pack their bags and leave the area on Friday.” “Military air power flying the area now”

He later told us that he found out how much aid state-wide would be demanded. “They want us ready to respond with an ambulance with a minimum of 3 personnel or fire apparatus with full crew anywhere in the state. The main focus is any town with a college or university. This seems very odd to me.”

Odd indeed. Why the necessity to respond to any town with a college or university? Why is the concentration not on Ferguson completely?

My initial guess would be to reference back to the race baiters and the agent provocateurs that are coming in from the government to really get things riled up.

Other reports coming out are that it isn’t just what our source is telling us, but places of business are boarding up their windows and police are re-stocking their tear gas.

The August 9 shooting of Michael Brown resulted in both peaceful protests and violent rioting and looting. This resulted in a show of force by the militarized police in Missouri

Some believe that this event is not just about implementing martial law, but about handing over America’s sovereignty to the United Nations.

While some citizens were smart enough to be armed and protect their families and places of businesses rather than be dependent upon police for help, which an anti-gun Democrat senator was arrested with a loaded 9mm while she was allegedly drunk.

Obama said that citizens who were trying to protect themselves from violent criminals by carrying a gun were “undermining justice.” Police were also told to stand down when they witnessed rampant looting taking place.

At the end of October, protesters attacked a white man as he passed by and Michael Brown’s mother and a group of people were involved in shutting down a relative’s place of business, assaulting another relative and stealing $1400.

Additionally, Ferguson protestors have issued a list of 18 “Rules of Engagement,” which are a set of restraints on the police response to expected rioting. Here’s the list as provided by CNN. The irony of the first listed ROE is quite telling, don’t you think?

Personally, I would encourage everyone who remains in the area to be armed and prepared to defend themselves and their property. While I highly doubt that sharia loving governor Jay Nixon will actually do anything to encourage such a move, it is a wise move nonetheless.

Thousands rally across US after Ferguson decision
11/24/14

Thousands of people rallied late Monday in U.S. cities including Los Angeles and New York to passionately but peacefully protest a grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer who killed a black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

They led marches, waved signs and shouted chants of "Hands Up! Don't Shoot," the slogan that has become a rallying cry in protests over police killings across the country.

Activists had been planning to protest even before the nighttime announcement that Officer Darren Wilson will not be charged in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

The racially charged case in Ferguson has inflamed tensions and reignited debates over police-community relations even in cities hundreds of miles from the predominantly black St. Louis suburb. For many staging protests Monday, the shooting was personal, calling to mind other galvanizing encounters with local law enforcement.

Police departments in several major cities said they were bracing for large demonstrations with the potential for the kind of violence that marred nightly protests in Ferguson after Brown's killing. Demonstrators there vandalized police cars, hugged barricades and taunted officers with expletives Monday night while police fired smoke canisters and pepper spray. Gunshots were heard on the streets.

But police elsewhere reported that gatherings were mostly peaceful immediately following Monday's announcement.

About 100 people holding signs that read "The People Say Guilty!" blocked an intersection in downtown Oakland, California, after a line of police officers stopped them from getting on a highway on-ramp. Minutes earlier, some of the protesters lay on the ground while others outlined their bodies in chalk. A similar scene unfolded in Seattle as dozens of police officers watched.

Several hundred people marched through downtown Philadelphia with a large contingent of police nearby.

"Mike Brown is an emblem (of a movement). This country is at its boiling point," said Ethan Jury, a protester in Philadelphia. "How many people need to die? How many black people need to die?"

Several hundred people who had gathered in Manhattan's Union Square to watch the announcement marched peacefully to Times Square after the family of Eric Garner, a Staten Island man killed by a police chokehold earlier this year, joined the Rev. Al Sharpton at a speech lamenting the grand jury's decision.

In Los Angeles, which was rocked by riots in 1992 after the acquittal of police officers in the videotaped beating of Rodney King, police officers were told to remain on duty until released by their supervisors. About 100 people gathered in Leimert Park while others held a small news conference demanding changes in police policies.

A splinter group of about 30 people broke away and marched through surrounding streets, blocking intersections, but the demonstrations remained mostly small and peaceful.

Chris Manor, with Utah Against Police Brutality, helped organize an event in Salt Lake City that attracted about 35 people.

"There are things that have affected us locally, but at the same time, it's important to show solidarity with people in other cities who are facing the very same thing that we're facing," Manor said.

In Denver, where a civil jury last month found deputies used excessive force in the death of a homeless street preacher, clergy gathered at a church to discuss the decision, and dozens of people rallied in a downtown park with a moment of silence.

At Cleveland's Public Square, at least a dozen protesters held signs Monday afternoon and chanted "Hands up, don't shoot," which has become a rallying cry since the Ferguson shooting. Their signs referenced police shootings that have shaken the community there, including Saturday's fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who had a fake gun at a Cleveland playground when officers confronted him.

A few hundred people marched from Chicago police headquarters toward downtown after hearing the Ferguson decision, using profanity but causing no damage. Police on bicycles, horseback and in squad cars closed portions of roads along the protesters' route.

Despite Evidence, Parents Insist Brown 'Was Running For His Life'
'I believe that [Wilson] asked my son to stop and I believe that’s what he did.'


 Michael Brown's parents sat with Charlie Rose Wednesday night to discuss their reaction to the grand jury decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson with criminal charges in the death of their son.

Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, insisted that the grand jury got it wrong and that her son was following Wilson's instructions when he was killed.

“My son was running for his life, and as his father has said before, he’s had a conversation with him about how to deal with the authorities if you’re approached," McSpadden said. "Which is to obey, basically. If they ask you to do something you have to do it. I believe that [Wilson] asked my son to stop and I believe that’s what he did.”

Brown Family Reacts To 'Burn This B*tch Down' On The Today Show
"I wouldn’t hold him accountable for that."


I would, the moron incited a riot. Wonder how that oh were did all of our jobs go thing worked out. The parents are 2 of the worst race baters i have ever seen.


On Wednesday, Michael Brown's family made an appearance on NBC's The Today Show where they were confronted with video showing Brown's stepfather Louis Head shouting "burn this **** down" to an enraged crowd.

"There was a video that circulated about Monday night,” NBC’s Savannah Guthrie said to Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden, “I want to show it to you. In the video we see your husband, what appears to be stirring up the crowd. Take a look at it.”

After reviewing the footage, Brown's mother downplayed her husband's action while trying to place the blame on Missouri governor Jay Nixon.

"He was just emotional,” McSpadden said. “I don’t feel that he stirred the crowd. The crowd was already stirred. It’s been stirring since Aug. 9.”

"I wouldn’t hold him accountable for that," she continued. "That comes from a higher power, elected official, and it’s called the governor… They stirred the pot. They had everyone on edge. They had everyone in the uproar and had the city on edge, basically, since Aug. 9.”

AP: 'Hands Up. Don't Shoot' based on lie?

The word spread within minutes of Michael Brown's death - a young black man with his hands raised in surrender had just been shot by a white cop.

Soon, "Hands Up. Don't Shoot!" became a rallying cry for protesters in the streets of this St. Louis suburb and a symbol nationwide of racial inequality for those who believe that minorities are too often the targets of overzealous police.

Yet the witness accounts contained in thousands of pages of grand jury documents reviewed by The Associated Press show many variations about whether Brown's hands were actually raised - and if so, how high.

To some, it doesn't matters whether Brown's hands literally were raised, because his death has come to symbolize a much bigger movement.

"He wasn't shot because of the placement of his hands; he was shot because he was a big, black, scary man," said James Cox, 28, a food server who protested this week in Oakland, California.

Some witnesses said the 18-year-old had his hands held high toward the sky as Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson gunned him down midday Aug. 9. Others thought they saw his hands partially raised, about shoulder high. To some witnesses, his palms appeared out, as if surrendering. To others, his palms seemed open, as if glancing at his wounded hand or gesturing with an attitude of "what are you going to do about it." Some said Brown's hands weren't raised at all.

The truth may never be certain. Despite a three-month state grand jury investigation and an ongoing federal probe, no one has publicly disclosed any photos or videos capturing exactly what transpired.

After a Missouri prosecutor announced Monday night that the grand jury had decided not to indict Wilson, the symbolic chant of "Hands Up. Don't Shoot!" rang out from protesters from Los Angeles to New York to London.

In Ferguson, some protesters have been wearing shirts with the phrase as they demonstrate outside the police station.

Protester Taylor Gruenloh, a 32-year-old white man from nearby Florissant, said that while he believes there's truth to claims that Brown had his hands raised when shot, the lack of proof makes little difference to protesters who have found it to be a unifying force.

"Even if you don't find that it's true, it's a valid rallying cry," he said. "It's just a metaphor."

Brown had been walking with a friend down the center of Canfield Drive when Wilson, passing in his patrol vehicle, told them to move to the sidewalk. They did not. Wilson testified that he then realized Brown was a robbery suspect. A scuffle broke out at the vehicle. Wilson fired a shot that hit Brown in the right hand. When Brown ran, Wilson gave chase. At some point, Brown stopped and turned toward Wilson, who opened fire.

Wilson told the grand jury that Brown had his left hand in a fist at his side and his right hand under his shirt at his waist, and was charging toward him.

The phrase "hands up" is peppered throughout the grand jury documents, as prosecutors and investigators tried to clarify exactly what witnesses saw. In quite a few cases, it's unclear exactly what the witnesses say they saw, because the gestures they made for grand jurors weren't described in the transcripts.

Some of the witness accounts of the shooting differed so much they didn't seem like the same scene.

"I saw him in the middle of the street on his knees with hands up," one witness said. "(The) officer came up to him and shot him in his head and he fell."

Another witness was insistent that Brown was on his feet and did not raise his hands.

"The officer was already in pursuit of him. He stopped. He did turn, he did some sort of body gesture, I'm not sure what it was, but I know it was a body gesture," the witness said. "And I could say for sure he never put his hands up after he did his body gesture, he ran towards the officer full charge."

In some regards, the disputed circumstances of Brown's death highlight the inherent troubles with eyewitness testimony.

"It's difficult for people under the best of circumstances to accurately report what happened," said Elizabeth Brondolo, a psychology professor specializing in the effects of race on mental and physical health at St. John's University in New York.

For Wilson and others at the shooting scene, what they say they saw may depend not just on their vantage point, but also their view of life, she said.

"The truth always really matters, but it's important to recognize that past experience to stereotypes also influences the perception of hands being raised," Brondolo said.

After the Ferguson grand jury announcement, several hundred protesters marched through central London with their hands raised, shouting "Hands Up. Don't Shoot!" Others carried hand-made banners saying "Black lives matter." The Brown shooting has particular resonance in London, which was rocked by days of rioting following the 2011 death of Mark Duggan, a young black man shot to death by police under disputed circumstances.

Architect Evan Chakroff was among the protesters this week in Seattle. He said the "Hands Up" gesture is far from a literal representation of the circumstances of Brown's death.

"My sense is that it's totally symbolic and a way of representing powerlessness" in the face of inequality and militarized police, he said.

Several demonstrators said focusing on the exact circumstances of Brown's shooting misses the point of the slogan.

"This is not about one boy getting shot in the street, but about the hundreds just like him who have received the same callous and racially-influenced treatment," said Oakland, California, protester Gabe Johnson, a middle school teacher. "So ultimately, no, it doesn't matter at all if somehow we can say for sure whether this one young man really said these words or had his hands up."

Marijuana figures big in Ferguson meltdown



CNN’s Don Lemon is under fire for making the elementary observation that some of the Ferguson protesters planning violence and mayhem were smoking pot. Linking dope to violence is taboo for most of the media.

Reporting from the scene, Lemon said, “Maybe a minute, two minutes ago we heard a gunshot and watched people scattering. And we’re watching people on the roofs of cars, on the tops of cars and … Obviously there’s a smell of marijuana here as well.”

“Lemon’s comments sparked fierce backlash on social media,” reported Toyin Owoseje of the International Business Times. She said “many members of the online community” accused him of “adding fire to the flames and promoting his own agenda.”

It’s the marijuana, not Lemon’s observation, that added fire to the flames. He was just pointing out the obvious. Are journalists supposed to ignore the use of mind-altering substances by demonstrators planning the burning and looting of businesses?

That Lemon’s simple observation has generated outrage in the press demonstrates how most journalists are trying to play down the harmful effects of the drug and ignore the epidemic of drug use in minority communities. Our media, and some libertarian politicians such as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., want everyone to believe that police who enforce the laws and the “War on Drugs” are the problem.

No, it’s the drugs and their consequences, including mental illness and violence.

Don Kaplan of the New York Daily News called Lemon’s remark a “culturally insensitive comment,” as if dope-smoking were something indigenous to Ferguson residents. He also called it a “useless observation” that “polarized critics” against Lemon.

Catherine Taibi of the always politically correct Huffington Post said the remarks sparked a “backlash” against Lemon.

Why so much outrage over a simple observation of fact? Aren’t journalists supposed to report facts?

It is apparent that Lemon’s critics were concerned that viewers might conclude that some of the burning and looting may be linked to the weed that some of them smoke for alleged “recreational” or “medical” purposes. The “backlash” probably came from other marijuana smokers, or those sympathetic to the demonstrators.

Lemon’s critics were obviously concerned that his observation of fact would put the protesters in a bad light.

But, remember that Michael Brown, who assaulted police Officer Darren Wilson, was high on marijuana as well. That is something else the media have tried desperately to downplay.

The idea that this “harmless” substance isn’t so harmless after all is something that the liberal media cannot tolerate. That’s why anything negative about the weed has to be suppressed. If it is reported, such as in the case of Don Lemon, the offending journalist must be ridiculed and ostracized.

The Lemon incident brings up another critical point.

Any reporter who reads the grand jury documents in the case and covers them objectively will note there was an extensive discussion of the possible effects of marijuana on Michael Brown.

DeForest Rathbone, chairman of the National Institute of Citizen Anti-Drug Policy, or NICAP, saw the evidence of dope playing a role in the confrontation between Brown and Wilson, and found a strange omission in the Washington Post’s coverage of the grand jury proceedings. In a letter to the paper, he wrote:

“Michael Brown is continually being described as an ‘unarmed black teenager.’ And that mantra prevails among the liberal media and government officials, enflaming [sic] violent reactions by people believing that the ‘innocent’ teenager was irrationally killed by police.

“But in a glaring example of media bias exacerbating racial tensions in the Michael Brown shooting death, Post reporters left out the key exculpatory fact in the grand jury finding officer Darren Wilson not guilty: The fact that Michael Brown tested positive for marijuana, which could explain his irrational violent behavior, not only in the convenience store which he strong-arm robbed while physically attacking the store clerk, but also in provoking the violent confrontation with police officer Darren Wilson.

“If it weren’t for the mainstream media’s reverence for the ‘sacred cow’ of marijuana, they would see the valid scientific studies showing that pot is currently being produced in varying strengths from a mildly intoxicating 2% THC up to school-shooter-psychosis-inducing 40% to 70% THC. And that early childhood use of pot is a major cause of psychosis and violent behavior … which could be the ‘unknown motive’ frequently cited in news articles on the Ferguson affair.”

Rathbone’s reference to the “unknown motive” is the discussion we have seen on CNN and other networks expressing surprise that Brown would have charged or attacked Wilson. Being stoned on pot, as Brown was, explains his behavior. Many notorious cases of violence have been linked to the drug in the past.

Rathbone said Attorney General Eric Holder’s suspension of enforcement of federal drug laws against marijuana in “Stoner States” has resulted in “producing and shipping brain-destroying, violence-inducing strains of pot throughout the nation.”

“Therefore,” he adds, “it’s not the police, or white racism, that is causing this devastation; it is U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder who turns a blind eye to the malignant impact of marijuana and then tries to blame everybody else for the resulting social chaos.”

Rathbone urged “responsible journalists” to focus on the problem.

But that’s clearly not going to be the case. After attacking Lemon for mentioning the smell of pot amidst the protests, some in the media have decided to attack the prosecutors for even bringing the subject up before the grand jury.

Anthony Zurcher of the BBC questions the role of marijuana in the attack on Wilson and quotes Jacob Sullum of Reason magazine as his authority in saying the dope couldn’t have played a role.

Jacob Sullum is a libertarian who favors legalizing dangerous drugs, and once wrote an article on why heroin is supposedly less dangerous than alcohol and how people can use the drug without harmful effects. He has compared heroin to nicotine. “Even daily opiate use is not necessarily inconsistent with a productive life,” he wrote.

However, there are some reporters beginning to cover the subject objectively.

Rathbone points out that Kevin Torres, a reporter for KUSA in Colorado, where marijuana is legalized, has done a balanced story on the issue, noting that researchers from Harvard and Northwestern University recently found “younger marijuana users are more likely to have learning and mental health problems.” He cited an article from the New England Journal of Medicine showing high THC use being linked to paranoia and psychosis.

Michael Brown was not only high on THC but was apparently preparing to smoke more dope when Officer Wilson caught him walking down the center of a street and asked him to move to the sidewalk. The swisher sweet cigars Brown had stolen from the convenience store are notorious for being used to make marijuana “blunts.”

Our media are desperate to maintain the narrative that the police are shooting black youth for no reason. If the media admit that marijuana is being used extensively in the black community, that fact could lead to other disturbing questions. For example, did Brown’s mother and father know about his drug use? Did they do anything to stop his use of the drug? Have they used drugs themselves?

You and I know these questions won’t be asked because they are considered to be “culturally insensitive.” So the problem will get worse.

Such questions might prompt some serious scrutiny of the Obama/Holder policy of encouraging drug use in America’s communities by failing to enforce federal laws against the possession or distribution of dangerous mind-altering substances.

Drug use helps explain the violent conduct of Brown, as well as some of the protesters. It also explains why they continue to blame Officer Wilson for Brown’s death when the evidence shows that Wilson was only defending himself against what he described as a “demon” coming toward him.

Reporters like to laugh about the old “reefer madness” film depicting crazy conduct resulting from marijuana use. It’s not so funny anymore.

Yeah, and remember when PPF was pushing to legalize marijuana.

It's only a matter of time before pot gets legalized nationwide(just like SSM) - talk about drunkenness, albeit even worse.

1Thes 5:1  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
1Th 5:2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1Th 5:3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1Th 5:4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1Th 5:5  Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
1Th 5:6  Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
1Th 5:7  For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
1Th 5:8  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

CNN is lying when they say Ferguson protests were ‘peaceful’

Here’s a quiz for you folks in the media: What happens if you’re out doing “man on the street” interviews but none of the men on the street fit your “narrative”?

If you’re CNN, you stop interviewing them.

It has been remarkable to watch the last few days as America’s self-styled “most trusted news network” has sent out teams of reporters to various areas of Ferguson, Mo., ostensibly to cover the protests there. While their cameramen are watching cars on fire and stores being looted, the reporters ramble on about how “most people here” are “peaceful protesters.”

Where are these peaceful protesters? The reporters can’t seem to find any. Instead, they turn to outside experts and some carefully vetted religious leaders to talk about “the real message” of the protests.

On Tuesday night, CNN correspondent Jason Carroll was reporting, “Most of the protesting we saw in front of the Ferguson Police Department tonight was peaceful.” Then as he started trying to explain the fires burning behind him, he was approached by three of the protesters, who proceeded to get in his face and yell at him because he was promoting a “certain narrative” — the police narrative. “You don’t understand!” one screamed.

Anchor Don Lemon quickly went elsewhere, saying he was worried about Carroll’s safety. When Lemon returned to Carroll later in the broadcast and asked him what the men were saying to him, Carroll refused to say. The reporter was stonewalling because, he explained, these men didn’t “represent” the peaceful protesters who were really the story.

CNN’s “narrative” was laid out early on Monday evening as correspondent Van Jones (formerly of the Obama administration) warned the audience not to pay attention to “a few knuckleheads” who later became a “bunch of knuckleheads” who “started a bunch of nonsense.”

Knuckleheads? Nonsense? When did knucklehead become a synonym for arsonist? When did taking a baseball bat to store windows become “a bunch of nonsense?” Talk about defining deviancy down.

On Tuesday night, Lemon even asked Jones about the difficulty they were having in finding peaceful protesters to interview, and Jones replied that “a lot of these young people are on the knife’s edge between violence and nonviolence.” What does that even mean?

Lemon did not ask. Instead, he returned to Marc Lamont Hill, who explained that the problem is not the protesters but the police who have been “disingenuous” by closing off a road to protesters after they heard shots being fired.

Again, he notes that the protesters were very peaceful — and would have remained so if it weren’t for those police officers making people so angry by stifling their voices.

This is a news organization that has lost all sense of its role.

There was even a debate among these knuckleheads — sorry, correspondents — over whether they should have aired video of Michael Brown’s stepfather standing on top of a car yelling, “Burn this **** down,” right after the verdict was released.

When the Brown family called for peaceful protest, that was reported, but this outburst may not have been newsworthy, according to some of the CNN experts.

Come on. Enough is enough. These were not peaceful protests from the beginning.

Civil disobedience does not happen at night. No matter when the grand jury decision was announced, people who are engaged in peaceful protest take out their signs and march down the street in broad daylight.

Peaceful protesters don’t wear creepy anarchist masks or even bandannas to cover their faces. They are protesting with a clear conscience and are happy to have anyone know their identity.

Peaceful protesters do not dress like they are about to knock over a convenience store because they are not about to knock over a convenience store.

From day one, CNN has twisted the Ferguson story. The network decided early on that an injustice had been done, contrary facts aside. When the grand jury decided not to indict, CNN was primed for outrage, because there was no way officer Darren Wilson could have acted appropriately.

The network helped stir up a nation to the point of violence. Yet, since the protesters must always be on the side of angels, CNN lies about the destruction that follows.

NFL will not punish Rams for 'hands up'
12/1/14

(https://s.yimg.com/nn/fp/rsz/113014/images/smush/stlouisrams_635x250_1417375875.jpg)

Prior to Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, several members of the St. Louis Rams entered the field with hands raised in a symbolic "hands up, don't shoot" gesture used by protestors in nearby Ferguson.

The move drew criticism from the St. Louis Police Officers Association, which called the players' statement "a display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory." The association asked for the players to be disciplined and for the NFL to deliver "a very public apology."

No such apology will be forthcoming.

"We respect and understand the concerns of all individuals who have expressed views on this tragic situation," Brian McCarthy, NFL vice president of communications, said in a statement. In addition, the team will not be fining the players involved.

"We wanted to show that we are organized for a great cause and something positive comes out of it," wide receiver Kenny Britt said. "That's what we hope we can make happen. That's our community. We wanted to let the community know that we support the community."

"We kind of came collectively together and decided we wanted to do something," tight end Jared Cook said. "We haven't been able to go down to Ferguson to do anything because we have been busy. Secondly, it's kind of dangerous down there and none of us want to get caught up in anything. So we wanted to come out and show our respect to the protests and the people who have been doing a heck of a job around the world."

The NFL actively seeks to remain apolitical and minimize individual statements of belief while on the field, but in this instance apparently decided that remaining out of the fray was the more prudent option.

CNN had an agenda in Ferguson, says NY Post writer

A reporter for the New York Post claims CNN's coverage of the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, was irresponsible and inaccurate.

CNN logoAn exposé in the Post investigated CNN's news coverage of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown in early August following a robbery, and the subsequent grand jury decision not to indict the officer.

Naomi Schaefer Riley, who authored the Post article, contends CNN correspondents misrepresented what was actually happening in Ferguson. Following is an excerpt:

Here's a quiz for you folks in the media: What happens if you're out doing "man on the street" interviews but none of the men on the street fits your "narrative"?

If you're CNN, you stop interviewing them.

While many of the reporters referred to the events in Ferguson as "peaceful protests," images of rioting, looting, and police cars being torched communicated a different message.

"It's like the soundtrack to your movie doesn't match the pictures," says Riley. "Something is wrong here."

The journalist went as far to say that CNN lied to its viewers. "Either the camera was lying –which I suspect was not the case – or the correspondents were lying," she states. "Something was wrong here. If they had peaceful protestors, why weren't the cameras showing any peaceful protestors?"

In her November 29 exposé, Riley maintains that the reporters seemed to take their talking points from former Obama administration appointee Van Jones, who is a CNN correspondent.

"It's rare you see the liberal media's dishonesty in such stark terms," she concludes in her article, "but CNN can't control the pictures. If you wanted to know what was really happening this week, all you had to do was press the mute button."

A Virginia cop is kidnapped and murdered by several black gang members. Sharpton, where are you?!

Such hypocrisy and reverse-racism is breathtaking. The brutal truth is Sharpton, Holder and Obama will never address this officer’s death because he was white and because they protect the black gangs out there. Officer Kevin Quick was kidnapped and murdered by four black gang members – they belong to the Bloods street gang known as the 99 Goon Syndicate out of Los Angeles. Quick was forced to drive from ATM to ATM to get money, then he was taken out in the woods and executed as a gang initiation rite. It never really made the news and it certainly didn’t make Obama’s talking points. No, he was too busy stirring a race war over a young thug who attacked a police officer, who then did his job and took that thug down. Obama is now embroiled in nationwide protests created by radical groups at his bidding.

From Three Percenter:

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WRIC) -According to federal court documents, four people have been charged with murder in the death investigation of Capt. Kevin Quick.

    Daniel Mathis, Shantai Shelton, Mersadies Shelton and Travis Bell (a.k.a. Kweli Uhuru) are charged with murdering Quick. The capital murder charge could carry a very serious penalty, according to U.S. Attorney Tim Heaphy.

    “That is a penalty up to the death sentence in this case that is available for that offense.”

    Five others – Gert Wright III, Anthony White, Anthony Stokes, Leslie Casterlow and Devante Bell – are facing gang-related racketeering charges in connection to the case.

    Those indicted are all members of a subset of the Bloods street gang known as the 99 Goon Syndicate.

    The indictment spells out how members of the gang allegedly carjacked and kidnapped Quick and then drove around to various banks, attempting to withdraw cash from his accounts before murdering him and dumping his body in Goochland County.

    The gang is also charged with numerous robberies, shootings and assaults taking place across Central Virginia as well as drug and weapons charges.

    Officials from Virginia State Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Waynesboro Police Department held a news conference Friday at the United States Attorney’s Office in Charlottesville to deliver details on the charges the suspects face.

    Quick, of Rockfish, was reported missing on Feb. 1, when he failed to arrive at his girlfriend’s residence in Albemarle County. The 45-year-old captain was last seen in Nelson County on Jan. 31, and was found dead in Goochland County on Feb. 6.

Holder, Jackson, Sharpton and Obama are racists, pure and simple. Had this been the KKK or some other group and a black person had died, it would have an apocalyptic moment and more riots and mayhem would have been pushed, pandered and promoted. But another white cop dies, this time murdered brutally, and Obama shrugs. He’s too busy going to the hospital for a sore throat and acid reflux to give a crap about another dead infidel. Not a peep from the sycophant media. Riots are too sexily alluring – a cop’s murder… not so much. Sharpton is nowhere to be seen or heard on this – he’s out there organizing protests and riots for a new faux civil rights movement where he can pad his tarnished legacy and make more money.

Michael Brown Star Witness Gets Government Job
Father of the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan


The father of the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” slogan has just been employed by the United States government.

Dorian Johnson, the star witness to the Michael Brown shooting and the man who was assisting Brown during the strong-arm robbery moments before Brown was killed, has been hired by the city of St. Louis.

According to STLtoday.com, “Jeff Rainford, Mayor Francis Slay's chief of staff, has confirmed that Johnson was hired under a state grant through the city's Agency on Training and Employment, or SLATE.”

Meeting the low income eligibility requirements, the 22-year-old will be holding the temporary position and will be making about $8.50 an hour.

Johnson told media that Brown had been shot from behind and then shot while surrendering to police with his hands up, both statements discredited by a majority of the evidence. Johnson will not be charged in the strong-arm robbery of the store, authorities said.

A Very Scary Situation
Whipping up racial resentments among blacks is causing some ugly whites reactions.


A disturbing conversation with one of my smartest, most astute friends who is from a border state but has been observing race relations for a long time now. He is white. He is definitely idiosyncratic. This, in paraphrase, is what he said:

“I keep reading in the newspapers and seeing in the mainstream media how angry blacks are at whites over the Trayvon Martin case, the Ferguson case and the Staten Island case. And what the media is missing is that as angry as the blacks are at the whites, that’s how angry many — not all — whites are at the blacks. Blacks ask for reparations for slavery and Jim Crow, as if paying today’s twenty-year-old crack addict had anything to do with his ten times removed grandfather being a slave or could make any difference at all to the soul of that slave.

“What I wonder is when white people are going to start asking black people for reparations for wrecking the public schools, for destroying urban life in many cities, for the insanely disproportionate share of armed robberies, homicides, and rapes they commit? When are black people going to pay reparations for putting the whole nation in fear?”

I heard this from a man about my age and I would chalk it up to one person’s oddness except that I hear words a bit like these constantly these days from white people.

Except during the era of school busing in the seventies, I have never heard or seen whites so angry at blacks. Al Sharpton has done what he set out to do and so has Eric Holder. They have fanned the flames of racial anger to a white hot pitch.

It is a scary situation, and what I keep thinking is that the only solution for angry people of both races is a spiritual solution: turn the anger and fear over to God. Stop looting. Stop whipping up hate. Stop play acting by affluent white college kids who pretend to be black revolutionaries.

Turn it over to God and pray for forgiveness and understanding among men of all races and faiths.

I have seen this work miracles and this, I am sure, is the direction we need to go. Only God’s love can solve this problem.

Pro-Police vs. Anti-Police Protesters Outside NYC City Hall: ‘I Can Breathe’

Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected last year after making promises to keep crime low while improving relations between police and the community. As the tensions between those promises continue to mount, Friday showed just how tricky threading that needle has been.

In the morning, de Blasio met with leaders of the protests that have swept through New York City in the weeks after a grand jury declined to indict the police officer who placed Eric Garner in a fatal chokehold while trying to arrest him.

In the afternoon, he ventured to New York Police Department headquarters to heap praise on the force, a week after an angry police union circulated a petition to bar him from any NYPD funerals.

And in the evening, a pair of protests – one pro-police, the other against – were held outside City Hall, with each side yelling at the other while claiming a lack of support from its occupant.

A few dozen people, including some wearing T-shirts bearing the words “I can breathe,” stared down a larger, louder crowd that denounced police violence and took up chants like “How do you spell racist? N-Y-P-D,” and “Black lives matter.”

There were no immediate reports of altercations or arrests. The pro-police protesters were quickly slammed as “racist” on social media.

1 NYPD officer dead, another critically injured after shooting

 A New York City police officer was killed and a second officer was in critical condition Saturday after they were shot as they sat inside a patrol car.

The attack took place in Brooklyn at around 3 p.m., the New York Daily News reported.

“The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up,” a high-ranking police official told the Daily News. 

An NYPD spokesman confirmed to Fox News that two officers were shot in the incident and were immediately moved to a nearby hospital. Police later told The Associated Press that one of the officers had been pronounced dead.

The New York Post  reported that both officers were shot in the head at point-blank range.

“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source told The Post.

The gunman just started “pumping bullets” into the patrol car, another source said.

The suspect then fled to a nearby subway station before he was shot and killed. It was unclear whether the suspect was shot by police or committed suicide.

2 NYPD cops shot dead ‘execution style’ as ‘revenge’ for Garner

suspect in shooting
(http://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/122014_brooklyn_cops_shotpm.jpg?w=720&h=480&crop=1)

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of the two officers, whose names were being withheld pending family notification of their deaths.
Modal Trigger
The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank in their heads by the lone gunman, who approached them on foot from the sidewalk at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues in Bed-Stuy.

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot through their front passenger window.

The post included an image of silver automatic handgun with a wooden handle. Another post showed camouflage pants and blue sneakers which matched the clothing the dead gunman was wearing as his body was carried from the scene on a stretcher.

“They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, signing off with, “This May Be My Final Post.”

The gunman was a fugitive who had just murdered his girlfriend in Baltimore Saturday morning, sources told The Post.

Minutes after shooting the two officers, he, too, was dead.

He fled to a nearby subway station, the G-train station at Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, where, as pursuing cops closed in, he shot himself on a crowded platform, sources told The Post.

“They engaged the guy and he did himself,” one investigator said of the gunman’s demise.

Both shooting scenes — above and below ground — were scenes of blood and terror.

“I heard shooting, — four or five shots,” ear-witness Derrick McKie, 49, told The Post of the cops’ tragic murder. “It sounded like from a single gun,” he said. Ambulances and police cars rushed to the scene, he said.

“I seen them putting the cop in the ambulance. He looked messed up,” McKie, a barber, added. “He took a high caliber weapon to the face. He was lifeless…I couldn’t see where the holes was that, all I could see was blood. His body was lifeless.”

Modal Trigg Carmen Jimenez, 32, a social worker from Bedford-Stuyvesant, was on the subway platform when the gunman ran inside, pursued by officers.

“Everything happened so quick,” said Jimenez, who is eight months pregnant. “We were standing waiting for the G train. We heard arguing from the other end of the platform.

It looked like two cops came in there was lots of yelling and they said, ‘Everybody get down.’

“We tried to get out of there, and there was a lot of shouting, people were screaming, people were trying to run.

“I threw myself on the floor. I was afraid for my life and afraid for my baby.”

New York Shooter Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley Posted Quran Verse on Terrorizing Enemies of Allah

Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley shot and killed two New York City police officers (Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos), who were sitting in their patrol car. Brinsley was clearly motivated by outrage towards the death of Eric Garner. However, there may be another factor here. Brinsley was an Arabic speaker and posted a Qur’an passage on “striking terror” into the hearts of the enemies of Allah.

(http://beforeitsnews.com/mediadrop/uploads/2014/51/260760260bfd51c7fe5e581c1891ec823e5f4a9b.jpg)

Qur’an 8:60 (quoted by Brinsley) reads:

    Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

Here’s more on the story:

Two New York City police officers were shot and killed ambush-style Saturday afternoon as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn, Police Commissioner William Bratton said.

The gunman approached the passenger side of the patrol car and opened fire several times, fatally wounding officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, authorities said at an evening press conference.

They were “shot and killed with no warning, no provocation,” Bratton told reporters. “They were quite simply, assassinated.”

Both were shot in the head, Bratton said.

The families of the fallen officers rushed to Woodhull Medical Center on Saturday, as dozens of police officers gathered in a show of support.

The officers—one with two years’ experience, the other with seven years on the job—were normally assigned to downtown Brooklyn, but were working a “critical response” detail in an area with higher crime, police said.

Police identified the shooter as Ismaaiyl Brinsley. He was found dead in a nearby subway station from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The gunman arrived in New York from Baltimore, but had a residence in Atlanta, Bratton said.

Police were investigating posts he allegedly made on social media. (Continue Reading.)

NYPD Police Union Head Goes Off on Mayor de Blasio, Protesters Over Murdered Cops: ‘There’s Blood on Many Hands Tonight’

After the fatal, ambush-style shootings of two New York City police officers Saturday, the head of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association served up sharp words as police gathered outside the hospital where the bodies of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu had been, the New York Tines reported.

“There’s blood on many hands tonight — those that incited violence on the street under the guise of protest that try to tear down what New York City police officers did every day,” Patrick Lynch said with a hard-as-nails tone.

Lynch added that “blood on the hands starts on the steps of city hall in the office of the mayor” for a “cold-blooded assassination like we haven’t seen before.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3uOwjWHjSIE

While he acknowledged a time was needed to grieve, Lynch made sure everyone understood what would happen after the funerals.

“We’ll raise our heads,” Lynch said, “and those that allowed this to go on will be held accountable.”

Lynch has been feuding with de Blasio over treatment of officers since a grand jury decided to not indict a New York City officer over the chokehold death of Eric Garner. In a press conference about the grand jury non-indictment, de Blasio said he had warned his 17-year-old, mixed-race son, Dante, to be careful around police officers, the New York Post reported.

Some New York City officers have been physically attacked during violent protests over the Garner case.

Just days ago, Lynch suggested police officers sign a petition that demanded the mayor not attend their funerals should they die on the job.

On Saturday cops appeared to turn their backs on de Blasio as he made his way to a press conference about the fatal shootings of Ramos and Liu.

I did not expect NYC to be ground zero for the race war to start. I really thought some unknown Midwest town to ignite, oh like Ferguson MO. guess i was wrong, or things didnt go as planned.

A Widening Rift Between de Blasio and the New York City Police Is Savagely Ripped Open

Mayor Bill de Blasio sat in the front pew at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Sunday, head bowed at times, with his wife on his left and the police commissioner on his right.

The crowd had come, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan said, to mourn the two officers killed in an ambush in Brooklyn on Saturday. It had come to pray for their families and their “brothers and sisters in uniform.”

He went on.

“We pray for our leaders as well,” the cardinal said, looking toward the mayor’s row. “You’ve done what so many New Yorkers do in times of trial. You’ve come to St. Patrick’s.”

At the helm of a grieving New York, still raw from weeks of protests amid a national reckoning over law enforcement and race, Mr. de Blasio faces his biggest test yet.

The mayor, who does not attend church regularly, did not speak publicly on Sunday. His administration said he hoped to convey, in subdued terms, the need for unity in the city.

Yet on the heels of the police deaths, the long-simmering tensions between Mr. de Blasio and the department he has pledged to reshape have reached an extraordinary nadir. Officers, led by union leaders, turned their backs on the mayor and Commissioner William J. Bratton on Saturday night as the two walked through a hospital to address the public about the deaths.

The president of the city’s largest police union, Patrick Lynch, blamed Mr. de Blasio for the tragedy. The officers’ blood “starts on the steps of City Hall,” he said, “in the office of the mayor.”

The reaction encapsulated weeks of escalating tensions. Even before the shooting, union leaders had circulated a letter allowing officers to request that the mayor not attend their funerals in the event of their death in the line of duty.

Since Mr. de Blasio’s crusade on the campaign trail against what he viewed as overreaching by the police in the Bloomberg administration, those close to the mayor have professed that securing the trust of officers was an essential, complicated task.

And for much of the department, it seems, he has fallen far short.

“This is a nightmare of the highest magnitude for everyone,” said Michael Palladino, president of the Detectives’ Endowment Association. Leaders at City Hall, he added, “need to dig down deep in their souls and understand that campaigning to be a leader is easier than being a leader.”

While the mayor remained largely out of view on Sunday, his predicament attracted a national audience. Current and former Republican lawmakers, including George E. Pataki, a former governor of New York, and Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, suggested Mr. de Blasio, a Democrat, had set a troubling tone and contributed to a dangerous climate for officers.

Protesters have filled the streets nearly every night in the more than two weeks since a grand jury declined to bring criminal charges in the police chokehold case of Eric Garner. Many of them have chafed at the mayor’s defense of “broken windows” theory of policing, the aggressive enforcement of low-level offenses, which Mr. Bratton has championed. (Officers approached Mr. Garner in July over the sale of loose cigarettes.)
Continue reading the main story

The protests, which have been predominantly peaceful but have overtaken bridges and city streets, inspired union accusations that Mr. de Blasio had placed too high a priority on protecting the rights of the demonstrators. (He met on Friday with one of the protest groups, Justice League NYC.)

Even when trying to defend officers, the mayor has, at times, been criticized by them. After reports of an attack on two police lieutenants during protests on the Brooklyn Bridge on Dec. 13, union leaders lamented that the mayor’s statement condemning the episode included the qualifier that police were “allegedly assaulted.”

In interviews, officers have noted the commissioner’s repeated defense of Mr. de Blasio — for a mayoral motorcade that apparently defied traffic laws; for counting the Rev. Al Sharpton as a confidant; and for comments he made after the Garner decision.

“Our police are here to protect us, and we honor that,” the mayor said then, invoking his biracial son, Dante. “And at the same time, there’s a history we have to overcome, because for so many of our young people, there’s a fear.”

Allies heard a mayor making good on a central campaign pledge: to salve the wounds of residents who had come to distrust the police.

Many in the department heard something else: the most striking example yet of what has been — according to a dozen officers interviewed before the shooting — the consistent vilification of the police by the city’s leader.

In fact, Mr. de Blasio has repeatedly praised the police, particularly throughout the recent sprawling protests. And many in the city have been critical of the unions’ treatment of the mayor since the shootings. (A spokesman for Mr. Lynch did not respond to questions on Sunday.)

Eric Adams, the Brooklyn borough president and a former police captain, said, “We need to use the pain that all of us are experiencing and turn it into purpose.” He added that “calling for reform is not a call for harm of police officers.”

Even Rudolph W. Giuliani, a Republican and former mayor, offered a measure of cover to Mr. de Blasio, telling Fox News that it “goes too far” to blame the mayor for the deaths. But, he added, Mr. de Blasio “did not properly police the protests” by allowing them to block city streets.

In an interview on Friday, Mr. Bratton acknowledged that “morale in the department, in general, is not good.”

Administration officials have attributed much of the police unrest to a contract dispute, suggesting that union leaders were not necessarily reflecting the opinions of the rank and file.

Many critics, though, trace the roots of department angst to the election last year. In an interview on ABC on Sunday, Mr. Bratton’s predecessor as commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly, echoed a familiar refrain of the mayor’s skeptics: that he had run an “antipolice campaign.”

Mr. Bratton, in the interview on Friday, disputed this notion, arguing that Mr. de Blasio had in fact campaigned against the zealous use of stop-and-frisk tactics, not against those in the department.
Continue reading the main story Continue reading the main story
Continue reading the main story

“He didn’t run against the Police Department,” Mr. Bratton said. “He ran against practices of the Police Department.”

Once in office, during another year of decreased crime, Mr. de Blasio pushed for retraining programs for officers and a loosening of penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana. Even ostensibly minor issues, like the use of profanity by officers, have been broached.

At the same time, Mr. de Blasio said in an interview on Friday, he is mindful that keeping the peace in the city is his “foundational” obligation. After Mr. Garner’s death in July, the mayor had staff members research past episodes of police violence in the city, like the cases of Abner Louima and Amadou Diallo, to see how the city navigated the aftermath.

Mr. de Blasio has also examined the 1991 riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in internal discussions.

Yet in the interview on Friday, less than a day before the shootings, the mayor spoke hopefully of his efforts to win officers over, predicting that the “vast majority of officers” would eventually line up behind his proposed changes.

“The transitional process is always tense and difficult,” the mayor said. “But I think we’re going somewhere.”

AP poll: Police killings of blacks voted top story of 2014
12/22/14

NEW YORK (AP) — The police killings of unarmed blacks in Ferguson, Missouri, and elsewhere — and the investigations and tumultuous protests they inspired — was the top news story of 2014, according to The Associated Press' annual poll of U.S. editors and news directors.

In a year crowded with dramatic and often wrenching news developments around the world, the No. 2 story was the devastating outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, followed by the conflict in Iraq and Syria fueled by the brutal actions of Islamic State militants.

Among the 85 voters casting ballots, first-place votes were spread among 15 different stories. The Ferguson entry received 22 first-place votes, Ebola 11 and the Islamic State story 12.

The voting was conducted before the announcement that the United States and Cuba were re-establishing diplomatic relations and Sony Pictures' decision to withdraw its film "The Interview" in the wake of computer hacking and threats.

Last year's top story was the glitch-plagued rollout of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, followed by the Boston Marathon bombing. The continuing saga of "Obamacare" made this year's Top 10 as well, coming in fifth.

The first AP top-stories poll was conducted in 1936, when editors chose the abdication of Britain's King Edward VIII.

Here are 2014's top 10 stories, in order:

POLICE KILLINGS: Some witnesses said 18-year-old Michael Brown had his hands up in surrender, others said he was making a charge. But there was no dispute he was unarmed and shot dead by a white police officer in Ferguson. In New York City, another unarmed black, Eric Garner, was killed after a white officer put him in a chokehold during an arrest for unauthorized cigarette sales. After grand juries opted not to indict the officers, protests erupted across the country, punctuated by chants of "Hands up, don't shoot" and "I can't breathe." In both cases, federal officials launched investigations.

EBOLA OUTBREAK: The first wave of Ebola deaths, early in the year, attracted little notice. By March, the World Health Organization was monitoring the outbreak. By midsummer, it was the worst Ebola epidemic on record, with a death toll now approaching 7,000, mostly in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. A Liberian man with the disease died at a Dallas hospital, followed by a few other cases involving U.S. health workers, sparking worries about the readiness of the U.S. health system.

ISLAMIC STATE: Militant fighters from the Islamic State group startled the world with rapid, brutal seizures of territory in Iraq and Syria. The U.S. and its allies responded with air strikes, hoping that Iraqi and Kurdish forces on the ground could retake captured areas. Revulsion toward Islamic State intensified as it broadcast videos of its beheadings of several Western hostages.

US ELECTIONS: For months, political oddsmakers sought to calculate if Republicans had a chance to gain control of the U.S. Senate. It turned out there was no suspense — the GOP won 54 of the Senate's 100 seats, expanded its already strong majority in the House of Representatives, and gained at the state level, where Republicans now hold 31 governorships.

OBAMACARE: Millions more Americans signed up to be covered under President Obama's health care initiative, but controversy about "Obamacare" raged on. Criticism from Republicans in Congress was relentless, many GOP-governed states balked at participation, and opinion polls suggested most Americans remained skeptical about the program.

MALAYSIA AIRLINES MYSTERY: En route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared on March 8 with 239 people on board. In the weeks that followed, aircraft, ships and searchers from two-dozen countries mobilized to look in vain for the wreckage on the Indian Ocean floor. To date, there's no consensus as to why the plane vanished.

IMMIGRATION: Frustrated by an impasse in Congress, President Obama took executive actions in November to curb deportations for many immigrants residing in the U.S. illegally. GOP leaders in the House and Senate pledged efforts to block the president's moves. Prospects for reform legislation were dimmed earlier in the year by the influx of unaccompanied Central American minors arriving at the U.S. border, causing shelter overloads and case backlogs.

TURMOIL IN UKRAINE: A sometimes bloody revolt that toppled President Viktor Yanukovych in February triggered a chain of events that continued to roil Ukraine as the year drew to a close. Russia, worried that Ukraine would tilt increasingly toward the West, annexed the Crimean peninsula in March and backed an armed separatist insurgency in coal-rich eastern regions of Ukraine. The U.S. and its allies responded with sanctions against Russia.

GAY MARRIAGE: Due to a wave of federal court rulings, 19 more U.S. states began allowing same-sex marriages, raising the total to 35 states encompassing about 64 percent of the population. Given that one U.S. court of appeals bucked the trend by upholding state bans on gay marriage, there was widespread expectation that the U.S. Supreme Court will take up the issue and make a national ruling.

VA SCANDAL: The Department of Veterans Affairs became embroiled in a nationwide scandal over allegations of misconduct and cover-ups. Several senior officials were fired or forced to resign, including VA Secretary Eric Shinseki. At the heart of the scandal was the VA hospital in Phoenix; allegations surfaced that 40 veterans died while awaiting treatment there.

Man Charged For ‘Put Wings On Pigs’ Facebook Post

The war ramps up...

A Chicopee man is facing charges after posting “Put Wings on Pigs” to Facebook, police say.

Chicopee police said Monday that local residents alerted them to the “very disturbing post” by Charles DiRosa.

On Saturday, two New York police officers were killed by a gunman while sitting in their police cruiser. The suspect, who then killed himself, had posted “I’m putting wings on pigs today” on social media, according to officials.

“After the events of the past few days, the PD took this threat very seriously,” Chicopee police wrote on Facebook.

DiRosa will be summonsed to court for Threat To Commit a Crime, police said.

Really, how can you arrest this guy and allow Al Sharpton, President Obama, Mayor debameo and Mike Browns Dad loose?

They are pushing the race war. Funnily Debameo een admited that the MEDIA was to blame for it.

Quote
De Blasio was clearly pained and jarred by the police executions Saturday, but he left the indignation to Bratton. The angriest moment de Blasio has mustered since the weekend was on Monday, and it was directed at the press.

“What are you guys going to do?” he asked, his voice rising, as he accused reporters of amplifying the few bad actors among the protestors. “Are you going to keep dividing us?”

With not enough blood on his hands Sharpton keeps pushing...

Sharpton Ignores Call To Halt Protests Until After NYPD Funerals
"Is a vigil a protest?"


 Al Sharpton will ignore New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's call to suspend protests until after the funerals of the two slain New York City police officers.

"Is a vigil a protest?" Sharpton asked during a telephone interview with Reuters. "Is a rally?" he added.

According to Reuters, Sharpton called de Blasio's plea "an ill-defined request." Sharpton indicated that he is going ahead with planned prayer vigils at the scene of Eric Garner's death and other scheduled events with the Garner family.

Joining Sharpton in criticizing the mayor's request is war and racism activist group Answer Coalition. As reported, they said suspending protests would be "outrageous" and would put a "chill" on free expression.

On Monday, de Blasio encouraged his city to hold off any protests until after the funerals of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu who were killed execution-style in their patrol car by a black man avenging the death's of Garner and Michael Brown:

    It's a time for everyone to put aside political debates, put aside protests, put aside all of the things we will talk about in due time.

City Prepares Lawsuit Against 'Black Lives Matter' Protest Organizers
Mall of America shutdown cost venders and city a "staggering" amount


 Bloomington City Attorney Sandra Johnson expects to file criminal charges against “Black Lives Matter” organizers responsible for the protest that shut down the Mall of America Saturday, CBS Minnesota reports.

Despite repeated warnings from officials that the mall was private property, “Black Lives Matter” organizers carried out the protest during one of the most important shopping days of the year. A flood of protestors converged on the MOA rotunda Saturday, forcing a shutdown of around 80 stores for about two hours.

Now protest leaders face paying a high price for what the city maintains are illegal actions. Johnson says the losses in sales and the cost to the city will be “staggering.” Mall officials are currently gathering estimates of losses from the stores affected while the city is calculating the costs for overtime put in by police.

“This was a powder keg just waiting for a match,” said Johnson. “The main perpetrators are those who continued on their Facebook site to invite people illegally to the Mall of America.”

“If we can identify those people who were inciting others to continue with this illegal activity,” said Johnson, “we can consider charges against them too.”

Johnson is building a criminal case against protest leaders, with police collecting evidence from mall security cameras and the group’s social media posts.

Meanwhile, “Black Lives Matter” says the police, not protestors, are to blame for the shutdown and have pointed to other groups as participating in the protest as well.

“We came to sing carols and raise awareness,” said group member Lena K. Gardner, “and the Bloomington police are the ones who shut down the mall, not us.”

Police: Officer fatally shoots armed man in town near Ferguson, Missouri

A police officer shot and killed an armed man late Tuesday in Berkeley, Missouri, said St. Louis County police spokesman Brian Schellman.

Police say the man had pointed a gun at the officer, who fired out of fear for his own life.

His mother, Toni Martin, identified the dead man as 18-year-old Antonio Martin.

Berkeley is a St. Louis suburb that borders on the city of Ferguson, where the controversial shooting of black teen Michael Brown by a white police officer triggered nationwide protests.

The officer with the City of Berkeley Police Department encountered two men during a routine check at a Mobil gas station, Schellman said. He got out of his squad car and approached them.

One of the men pointed a gun at the officer, who fired multiple shots at him, fatally wounding him. The second man fled.

Gun, body

A handgun lay in the parking lot with a bright yellow marker placed next to it, video from CNN affiliate KMOV showed. A body lay covered nearby. It was later placed on a stretcher and loaded into the back of a van.

Berkeley police asked St. Louis County police to handle the investigation of the shooting. The killed man's handgun was recovered at the scene, Schellman said.

The gas station appeared to be outfitted with surveillance cameras, which were pointed at the parking lot.

Mother speaks

Martin told CNN affiliate KMOV that her son had gone to see his girlfriend, who lived near the station and was with her at the time of the shooting. She said the girlfriend notified her of her son's shooting.

Martin said Antonio turned 18 in September. He had been expelled from school but was trying to get his life back together, she said, and she was encouraging him to join Job Corps.

Video posted to Vimeo showed Martin crying in the arms of other people.

Protest, scuffle

Protesters gathered around an ethnically diverse group of dozens of police officers, who stood between them and the scene. People in the crowd screamed at police. Others spoke more calmly.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer David Carson told CNN's Hala Gorani that some of the protesters damaged police cars. CNN showed images of one squad car with a large dent in its side.

A scuffle broke out, and officers grabbed some of the demonstrators and led them off in handcuffs.

"At one point, an explosive device, like a large firecracker or firework was thrown into the middle of the fight and exploded. That kind of scattered a lot of people," Carson said.

Video posted to YouTube showed two smoking objects flying toward the station, where police stood. One of them emitted white smoke, while the other exploded.

KMOV video showed a white plume rising at another location down the street.

Among the protesters were ministers and participants in Ferguson demonstrations after Brown's shooting death, the Post-Dispatch reported.

Before sunup, protesters thinned out, and those remaining grew calmer.

It’s WAR On The Streets Of America

CNN needs the ratings....

Make no mistake – there is now a state of open warfare on the streets of America.  Earlier this year it was being reported that the number of police officers killed on the job was up 40 percent in 2014, and that was before all of the civil unrest caused by the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.  At this point, attacks on police officers are becoming a frequent occurrence all over the country, but no incident has stunned the nation as much as the “execution-style” murder of two NYPD officers on Saturday by a radical Islamic gunman identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley.  Just prior to the attack, Brinsley posted a message on Instagram in which he declared that he was “putting wings on pigs today”.  Many would like to dismiss this as an “isolated incident” and pretend that everything is just fine in America, but that is not the truth.  The reality of the matter is that anti-police sentiment in this country is at an all-time high, and the level of anger and frustration in our increasingly radicalized urban communities has reached a boiling point.  As economic conditions continue to deteriorate and police tactics become even more brutal in the years ahead, the kind of rioting, looting and senseless violence that we witnessed in Ferguson is going to become commonplace in major cities all over the United States.

The mainstream media and many national leaders on the left end of the spectrum have been stirring up strife and division for months on end.  So now a toxic environment has been created which is inevitably going to lead to even more violence.  At some recent “protest marches”, we have heard demonstrators enthusiastically chant extremely threatening slogans such as this: “What do we want? Dead cops!”  And when news broke that Ismaaiyl Brinsley had brutally murdered two NYPD police officers, lots of very twisted people on Twitter were actually celebrating.

We are moving into a period of time when it is going to be extraordinarily difficult to be a police officer in America.  I couldn’t even imagine going to work every day knowing that you could become the next target at any time.

Yes, there have been lots of abuses.  In fact, I have written dozens of articles about the emerging Big Brother police state in America.  In many areas of the country today, our police officers are actually being trained to be physically brutal, to bark orders at ordinary citizens and to treat everyone around them like dirt.  This culture of brutality and oppression filters down from the very top, and so ultimately the root of the problem is at the federal level.

But most police officers that are serving our local communities are just average people trying to do their jobs.  Without the police, crime would be wildly out of control.  So I am very thankful for the police in my local area.  I sleep better at night knowing that they are there.

And the reality of the matter is that we have made their jobs so much tougher.  Thanks to unchecked illegal immigration, there are now approximately 1.4 million members of criminal gangs living in our cities.  And the Obama administration is allowing the UN to import thousands of Muslim radicals to communities all over the nation.  The police have to deal with well-armed threats that they simply did not have to face 40 or 50 years ago.  Our society is becoming increasingly unstable, and the police have to contend with the bleeding edge of that instability day after day.

So Ismaaiyl Brinsley did not appear out of a vacuum.  Even though the mainstream media is playing this angle down, the truth is that Ismaaiyl Brinsley was probably a member of an extremely violent criminal gang, and he was most definitely a radical Muslim.

According to his Facebook page, Brinsley spoke Arabic, and he also posted extreme passages from the Koran.  The following is one example…

Ferguson, Mo., unrest 2014

Editor's note: To recap, during a press conference just now St. Louis County police confirmed that an 18-year-old, identified by family and community members as Antonio Martin, was shot and killed by a police officer in Berkeley, Mo., after Martin lifted a 9 mm handgun at the officer. The incident occurred while the officer was responding to a larceny call. Surveillance video from the scene has been used to corroborate this information, and police are expected to release more details later today. The officer was not using a body camera or dash camera at the time of the shooting, and has been placed on administrative leave as the investigation continues. - Aaron

100% proof of the Media just stirring the pot.

HuffPo Duped by Twitter User, Prints False Racial Narrative
"Agenda and clicks still trump truth and decency."


When another shooting of an 18-year-old black man by a white police officer near Ferguson came to light Tuesday evening, The Huffington Post was there to fuel the racial narrative by publishing what turned out to be a false account that claimed the victim was shot because he refused to lie down.

Associate editor Sebastian Murdock was contacted through Twitter by user Jesus Christo (@DesJuanTheThug) who claimed he was with victim Antonio Martin and watched the policeman shoot his friend after Martin refused to lie down. Instead of vetting this source, Murdock believed the information and deemed it worthy of printing.

As police reports poured in with more details, such as the victim pulling a 9mm on the officer, @DesJuanTheThug's account came into question. Not helping was the fact that the "source" began taunting HuffPo through Twitter:

Realizing his horrible error, Murdock deleted the false report and issued a correction to his story:

    A previous version of this story included an interview with a man claiming to have been at the scene of the shooting and friends with the deceased. As police have released statements saying the second person involved in the incident has fled the scene, the source is now suggesting he was never there.

Murdock added to Twitter:

It has since become clear exactly why Jesus Christo trolled the breaking news story -- he needs a rap career and craves attention:

Are uniforms a target now? Florida firefighter wounded in station house drive-by shooting

A firefighter in north Florida was struck in the arm Tuesday evening when his fire station came under fire in a drive-by shooting.

About a half-dozen firefighters were outside of Station 28 in the Jacksonville area gassing up vehicles when a car drove by and opened fire, said Lt. Jackson Short of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, according to WJAX-TV.

One of the firefighters was grazed in the arm by a ricocheting bullet, but the wound was considered minor and did not require stitches, according to Short.

Despite law enforcement across the country being on high alert because of the murder of two New York City police officers, and a Florida officer being killed a day later while responding to a call, Short said there was no reason to connect Tuesday’s incident specifically to the other shootings, WJAX-TV reported.

However, he said the firefighters were likely targeted because they were in uniform and in a well-lit area.

WJAX-TV reported that Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department Chief Ivan Mote went further, saying the drive-by could be a copycat from the previous shootings.

“We’re concerned about the safety of our firefighters,” Mote said. “Of course our job is to protect people from incidents such as this, so first and foremost, we want to make sure our crews are safe.”

Jacksonville’s mayor released a statement calling the drive-by shooting a “cowardly attack.”

“I am outraged by cowardly attacks on our brave first responders,” Mayor Alvin Brown said in the statement. “These attacks will not be tolerated.”

The Obama Administration And Race-Baiting Pundits Are Paving The Way For National Policing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt2yGzHfy7s&feature=youtu.be

Well America, the “change” you voted for is here. Six years ago, you voted into office a community organizer who vowed to change America. That same community organizer, while campaigning, argued for a “civilian national security force.” But how can you create a national force when we already have local agencies?

Easy, you sow distrust in the local cops until the divide is so great, people start clamoring for the feds to come to the rescue. It sounds like the backstory to some cheesy movie of a dystopian future — only problem is, this is exactly what we are seeing happen right now, right here.

I’ve been a cop for 18 years. I grew up wanting to be a cop. When I was a kid in the late ‘70s and ‘80s, I did not know anyone who hated or feared the cops. In high school, I had friends in some of the most crime ridden neighborhoods of the city, and none of them feared the cops, none hated the cops. Sure, we all were nervous when we got pulled over, but that was the extent of our distrust. Today, going into some of those same neighborhoods, this time wearing a uniform, the feeling is distinctly different. The anti-cop sentiment has never been stronger in my lifetime than it is right now. But what got us here?

My first piece for the Daily Caller was in response to a question posed by Tucker Carlson: How has all the publicity surrounding the shooting in Ferguson, MO affected how you do your job? The resulting article, “Trust Me, Ferguson Changed Everything” was a quick look at the immediate backlash I was experiencing 1900 miles from Ferguson itself.

The problem with my perspective in that article is that the groundwork was being laid long before Mike Brown robbed that liquor store. The groundwork goes back to very early in Obama’s presidency (just 7 months to be precise) when his contempt for current American law enforcement first appeared in full force. Obama very publicly displayed his contempt on national television, when he announced to all the world, admittedly without knowing the full story, that “Cambridge Police acted stupidly” and out of racism.

Since then, Obama has repeatedly injected his opinion, very publicly, into a number of police issues, every time bringing race into the issue. His race baiting buddies Al Sharpton and Eric Holder are all too happy to play along. The Trayvon Martin incident is a perfect example. A Hispanic man shot and killed a black teenager who was attacking him. Obama went on national TV once again butting into the situation, insinuating the cops did not arrest Zimmerman due to racism, and then Obama turned Holder and the DOJ loose on the small Florida department.

The handling of the Martin case caused the first huge backlash against law enforcement. The useful idiots came out in droves and protested racist cops. Sharpton marched in the streets with the protesters calling for justice, and the dim witted masses played along and soaking it up.

Fast forward two years. Mike Brown, the “gentle giant” committed a strong arm robbery shortly before physically attacking a police officer. He tried to take the cop’s gun and was “murdered in cold blood while trying to surrender” — except that both the physical evidence and majority of the witness statements said that was BS. He was attacking the cop who shot in self-defense.

When word of the incident hit the media, including the televised lies of Brown’s crime partner, along came the usual race pimps. Al Sharpton was all over it. Obama spoke up many times, sending condolences to the parents of the poor, mistaken, murdered black youth. In fact, Obama personally called Brown’s grieving mother and spoke to her to express his sympathy. Obama immediately unleashed Eric Holder and the DOJ, sending them to investigate the racist white cops. Sharpton led “peaceful protests” during which no laws were broken, there was no looting, or violence, or arson, or assaults, or shootings, or vandalism, or attacks on the cops. And those horrible, racist cops did the unthinkable, like put on riot gear and attacked the “peaceful protesters” using their “tanks” and “militarized gear.”

The Governor of Missouri, Democrat Jay Nixon, 10 days after the shooting called for a thorough investigation into the incident to determine if criminal charges were merited —  or was it, “vigorous prosecution must now be pursued”?

Obama, in a very public middle finger raised directly to American law enforcement, sent representatives of the federal government to attend the funeral of a thug killed while violently attacking a cop. Throngs of celebrities and race baiters also attended the services.

Two short months later, out here in my neck of the woods, two cops were murdered and another wounded by a convicted felon, who was a Mexican citizen in this country illegally after having been deported numerous times. One of the cops, Deputy Danny Oliver, a white guy, was married to a very strong, successful businesswoman, who is black.  Did she receive a phone call from Obama expressing his sorrow at her loss, at the country’s loss of a hardworking man who gave his life protecting his community? Did Obama send representatives to attend Danny’s funeral? Not a peep.

A month after Danny’s funeral, when the grand jury decision to not file charges against Officer Wilson in Ferguson, MO was made public, the “peaceful protests” once again resumed. The “gentle giant”’s mother’s boyfriend (not his stepdad) climbed up onto a car and called for non-violent protests using calming words like “burn this **** down!” Of course, he said that after saying “Nah, if I get up there, I’m going to start a riot,” just before climbing onto that car.

The day after that, the Washington Post published an article written by a former police lieutenant who called for disbanding small, local agencies in favor of one large, state controlled law enforcement agency per state. I wrote a response to that article listing a great number of reasons why the idea won’t result in the changes the author cites as reasons to create those state agencies.

Ten days after the Ferguson grand jury declined to file charges against Officer Wilson, a Long Island grand jury in New York decided not to file charges against the officer in the “chokehold death” (that wasn’t) of Eric Garner. More “peaceful protests” ensued, and marches organized by none other than Al Sharpton himself took place in DC and NYC. Sharpton attended the march in DC where “marchers demanding that federal laws be enacted to curb local and state police agencies use of force rules.” Meanwhile, the related march in NYC happened, hundreds of the attendees chanted for a nonviolent approach saying, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”

The day after the Long Island grand jury declined to file charges, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio went on TV and decried all the centuries of racism on the part of law enforcement and says he will make sure that the entire NYPD receives proper training on how to be less racist (paraphrased).  In fact, his statements were so poorly received, his words met swift criticism by the working men and women of the NYPD, who called for a ban on the mayor attending any police funerals.

Well, after months of “peaceful protests,” with all of the regular race baiters spewing their “evil, oppressive, racist cop” rhetoric ad nauseam, the chickens are coming home to roost.

On December 20, 2014, Ismaaiyl Brinsley executed two NYPD cops while they sat in their patrol car. He came up from behind and shot them both in the head. He fled on foot and as the cops closed in, and his final act of cowardice was to put a bullet in his own head. Before this worthless excuse for a human went about committing his crimes, he posted a picture on Instagram and very clearly announced his intentions to exact revenge on the racist cops. He then went out and killed an Asian and a Hispanic officer in cold blood.

After the cowardly murder of the two, non-white NYPD officers, Mayor de Blasio again went on TV, this time to express his sorrow at the loss of two of the men whom he was speaking badly about only weeks before. I’m sure his condolences were well received…

On that same day, a California Highway Patrol officer on the opposite coast was attacked by a 17 year old wielding a machete. The officer was struck numerous times in the hand, forearm and face before finally shooting the suspect, who later died of his wounds. In keeping with the media war on law enforcement, the local TV news headline was “CHP officer shoots and kills teen.” All of the online articles I have found while writing this at least mention the officer was attacked, but even then some do not mention a weapon, and none that I have found expand on the amount of injuries the officer suffered, saying at best his injuries were “severe.”

Protester who advocates peace charged with setting fire at Berkeley QT

One of the most frequently quoted and photographed Ferguson protesters was charged Saturday with setting fire to a Berkeley convenience store last week.

St. Louis County police arrested Joshua Williams, 19, of St. Louis, on Friday after several local media outlets and store surveillance captured images of him trying to set a pile of wood on fire outside the QuikTrip on North Hanley Road early Wednesday.

Williams confessed to setting fires at the store in a videotaped interview, according to court documents.

Police say Williams entered the QuikTrip shortly after looters shattered its glass doors during protests of the death of Antonio Martin, 18, who a police officer had shot earlier at the Mobil station across the street. Surveillance footage from the Mobil store shows Martin point what police say is a gun at a Berkeley officer before the officer fatally shoots him.

Williams can be seen in videos both inside and outside the looted QuikTrip, authorities said.

On Friday night and Saturday morning, a small group gathered at the St. Louis County Justice Center in Clayton to protest Williams’ arrest. Some were in disbelief over his reported confession and said the video images are not clear enough.

“Josh is one of the young activists, and all of us have taken close to him. We got to know his heart, and he got to know ours,” said Bishop Derrick Robinson, of Kingdom Destiny Fellowship International. “He’s a great kid, an educated kid, a child who knows what he wants and is very active in the community.”

The Post-Dispatch, Bloomberg, USA Today and the Associated Press have quoted and photographed Williams. On Oct. 13, he was photographed walking arm-in-arm with author and activist Cornel West toward the St. Louis University campus where protesters staged a sit-in.

Williams’ most recent confrontation of St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson during a Ferguson Commission meeting landed him in the pages of this newspaper.

Williams came within feet of Dotson and shouted at him as he tried to answer questions from the panel. “Can someone please get this lying (expletive) ho off the mic!” Williams yelled.

Williams has been arrested at least twice during Ferguson-related protests for unlawful assembly as well as refusal to disperse.

Police say Williams used lighter fluid to set fires inside and outside the QuikTrip early Wednesday. He was charged with arson in the first degree, a felony. He is also charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor stealing for allegedly taking a lighter, gum and money from the store.

Williams has been quoted as an advocate for peaceful protests.

An MSNBC profile of Williams in September quoted him as saying, “We have to come together as one and show them we can be peaceful, that we can do this. If not, they’re going to just want us to act up so (police) can pull out their toys on us again.”

Later, he continued: “I learned that we have to stand up and that you can’t get nowhere with violence but you can always move people without it.”

Radical black activist issues cop-kill prediction

Shabazz (tallest in front) with New Black Panther Party

Malik Zulu Shabazz, the former national leader of the New Black Panther Party, said the radical group will “build up an army” in 2015 to combat police, and he predicted coming events “that are gonna seem tragic to white America and may even shock our own consciences,” including the killing of police officers.

On a recent episode of the New Black Panthers Party’s “Black Power Radio” posted at Breitbart.com, Shabazz, current national president of Black Lawyers for Justice, said:

“Mister Malcolm X, he consistently teaches us self-defense. The most honorable Elijah Muhammad continuously teaches us self-defense. The honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey teaches us self-defense, and we know, our leader and our teacher, the honorable Khalid Abdul Muhammad, teaches us self-defense.

“What am I saying? Right now it’s time to build up that army. Right now it’s time for us to build up those corps, those troops. It’s time to get strong. It’s time for lifting weights and working out and going to the gun range and all of that.”

Shabazz (tallest in front) with New Black Panther Party in South Africa

Shabazz counseled his followers that some will do things that “shock” their consciences, including killing police officers.

“Sadly because America won’t do justice to black people, more and more people are going to lose balance and go off, and so we’re going to have funerals. Mike Brown gonna have funerals, Eric Garner in New York,” Shabazz said. “All over the country, we’re having our funerals, but now they must put on their dress blues and have their funerals, too. It’s a helluva day in this hour.”

Listen to the episode below:
http://www.wnd.com/2015/01/radical-black-activist-issues-cop-kill-prediction/

He added that “some people are tired of seeing our people killed and murdered” and that “they are going to be killing some people in 2015. And unfortunately, police officers are going to be killed. As a result of killing us, they have inspired people in the population to go off and retaliate against them.”

After rallying his followers to “build up an army” and “go to gun range,” Shabazz claimed the coming violent actions will have “nothing to do with us.”

As WND reported in September, Shabazz claimed credit for shutting down traffic, chasing people away and preventing rioting for a single night in Ferguson, Missouri.

It was also the New Black Panthers, during the fight in Florida for justice when armed neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin after being confronted by the teen, who offered $1 million in reward for the “capture” of Zimmerman.

Shabazz’s Black Lawyers website promotes the Black Action Network as well as the Nation of Islam, which was founded in Detroit in the 1930s with the stated goal of improving the spiritual, mental, social and economic conditions of blacks. Its critics say it is a black supremacist organization.

WND also reported that photographs show President Obama appearing and marching with members of the New Black Panther Party as he campaigned for president in Selma, Alabama, in March 2007. Among the people visible in the pictures with Obama is Shabazz.

Barack Obama speaks from same podium as New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz during campaign event in Selma, Ala., in 2007 (BigGovernment.com)

Speaking to WND, Shabazz boasted he met Obama when the future president attended the 42nd anniversary of the voting rights marches in Selma in 2007.

“I have nothing but respect for Obama and for his pastor,” said Shabazz, referring to Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s former pastor of nearly 20 years.

The NBPP is a controversial black extremist party whose leaders are notorious for their racist statements and for leading anti-white activism.

Shabazz himself has given scores of speeches condemning “white men” and Jews.

The NBPP’s official platform states “white man has kept us deaf, dumb and blind,” refers to the “white racist government of America,” demands black people be exempt from military service and uses the word Jew repeatedly in quotation marks.

Shabazz has led racially divisive protests and conferences, such as the 1998 Million Youth March in which a few thousand Harlem youths reportedly were called upon to scuffle with police officers and speakers demanded the extermination of whites in South Africa.

The former NBPP chairman was quoted at a May 2007 protest against the 400-year celebration of the settlement of Jamestown, Va., stating, “When the white man came here, you should have left him to die.”

He claimed Jews engaged in an “African holocaust,” and he has promoted the anti-Semitic urban legend that 4,000 Israelis fled the World Trade Center just prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

I'm not the world biggest fan of our current government, but nonetheless the police departments across America is doing a good job in terms of staying scriptural with Romans 13:1-7(as they almost consistently, for the most part, are revengers to execute wrath upon them that doeth evil).

Middle School Kids Taken To Hear Louis Farrakhan Call For Violence Against The 'Crackers'
"We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”


An administrator at Booker T. Washington Middle School in Baltimore, MD, took forty young teenage students as young as eleven-years-old to the 2nd Annual Black United Summit International (BUSI) conference where they heard bigoted purveyor of hatred Louis Farrakhan reference "white people as “crackers” and a call for “retaliation” for the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson."

According to Danette Clark, ​who wrote about the conference for the Education Action Group's website, EAG News, the theme of the conference "was 'Re-Claim, Re-Pair, Re-Form, Re-Produce, – REPARATIONS NOW!', [it'] took place at Morgan State University and was reportedly attended by more than 2,000 “students, community leaders, and distinguished guests.”

    Specifically, Farrakhan held up what appeared to be the Quran and said that both it and the Bible have a “law of retaliation” in them. “A life for a life,” he said.

    Farrakhan continued:

    As long as they kill us and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us. But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”

    Farrakhan also condemned President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and others for telling protesters to “cool it,” stating:

    They know an explosion is going to come. You leaders are the worst. Tonight in Ferguson everyone is on edge. White folks ain’t never been on edge after they’ve killed a Black man. Tonight they’re on edge. So on edge that our president has come out from behind the curtain to ask Black young people, ‘cool it.’

    You leaders are the worst. When you talk to young people, you can’t feel that you’re missing them? Parents, you can’t feel when you’re talking to your children that this is a new generation and they don’t want to hear your compromising? But time has moved on. Your day of leading our people is over.

    You preachers—your day of being the pacifier for the White man’s tyranny on Black people is over. You’ve got to know they’re not going to hear you anymore.

When asked by Clark why the children were taken to this conference, Anthony Pena, the Middle School administrator who took the forty students between the ages of 11 and 15 to the conference, said, "At the end of the day… it’s about how we connect to our youth and help develop them to become our future.”

Hewitt Confronts Buzzfeed Ben Over Misleading Sensationalized Headlines
Buzzfeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith might have selected a more pleasant way to spend New Year's Eve.


woops, got caught  :D

Looking back on it, Buzzfeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith might have selected a more pleasant way to spend New Year's Eve. Smith was a guest on the Dec. 31 edition of the Hugh Hewitt Show, and found himself defending Buzzfeed's practice of "click bait" journalism, posting a misleading sensationalized headline to draw readers. Making matters worse, Hewitt used a Buzzfeed story as an example that Editor-in-Chief Smith hadn't read.​

The Buzzfeed article in question was originally called "Dead Cops Chant’ a Myth." After the Hewitt interview, it was changed to "The Origins Of The Alleged 'Dead Cops' Chant." and a correction was added to the bottom of the article:

    A headline on the front page of BuzzFeed described the chant of “dead cops” as a “myth.” In fact, marchers appearing to chant those words appear on a YouTube video embedded in this post.

Hewitt who is a law professor, took a "prosecutorial" approach to the questioning. He argued the headline was "misleading, because your reporter says it’s not a myth, it’s just overstated.” 

Smith scrambled to read the story and answer the questions at the same time:

    Hewitt: All right, let’s go from the general to the specific. The lead story at BuzzFeed on the last day of the year – Dead Cops Chant A Myth. That’s the headline. When you click on that, in fact, the headline is misleading, because your reporter says it’s not a myth, it’s just overstated. What they’ve latched onto in Tasneem Nasrullah’s piece is, “What they’ve latched onto is one viral video and a few small online anarchist groups.” And then as you read later, that’s the sub-head--I don’t know if she wrote that, either--when you read later, she actually comes up with a half-dozen instances of occasions where people have called for violence against police. So what do you call that, that escalator of attention-grabbers?

    Smith: Well, wait a second. The…the…the specific…(pause)

    Hewitt: The headline is Dead Cops Chant A Myth.

    Smith: (pause) Actually, I haven’t read the story. So I don’t feel I want to debate it with you.

    Hewitt: (laughing)

    Smith: …as I read it on the screen…

    Hewitt: I’m ahead of the editor?

    Smith: (laughing)

    Hewitt: That’s okay.

    Smith: …enough these days.

    Hewitt: Now look, here’s the deal. The story’s a good story. It’s very, it makes a key point, which is the amplification of trolls is a problem in the news business, right? ... What happens is the lowest common denominator of any story gets the most attention. It happens on the immigration story, happens on the cop killer chant story. Nevertheless, the headline…

    Smith: Wait, but you said this story, this story is protestors advocating for dead cops seems like a pretty straightforward…

    Hewitt: Look at Dead Cops Chant A Myth, Ben. It’s not a myth. She confirms it in the first graph. It happened.

    Smith: (pause) Oh, I see. You’re talking about the splash headline here.

    Hewitt: Yeah, I’m talking about what people click on. So ... is that tabloid? Are you guys borrowing…

    Smith: I think "myth" is a little strong. But (pause while typing), but I guess, but what are you, I’m not, but I’m also not sure what you’re asking.

    Hewitt: What I’m saying is do you feel regret that they used that? Or is that just fair game, tabloid journalism comes to the internet? You’re just trying to get people to click on that to read it…

    Smith: Well you know, I’m going to have, I’m happy to take a look at the story that you just, that you’re reading aloud to me at the moment. I mean, I think that obviously, reporting should be accurate. Headlines should be accurate. I mean, so yeah, but I think that’s a fairly obvious point that we both agree on.

Elected Official’s Ominous Tweet: ‘When You Exercise Your #WhitePrivilege, Don’t Think I’m Not Going to Remember.’

In a profile by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal is called “fiery” and is said to be known for her “sometimes profane outbursts” as well as being unpredictable.

More from the Post-Dispatch:

    In the last eight months alone, she’s lambasted the governor on education and African-American issues, called for the removal of the education commissioner and run a smear campaign against a fellow Democrat in a race that didn’t otherwise involve her.

On Saturday the state senator posted a series of tweets that began with “LET ME BE CLEAR”…but she appeared to up the ante with this one: “LET ME BE CLEAR: When you exercise your #WhitePrivilege, don’t think I’m not going to remember. I will use it for the future. Uncomfortable?”

NY Post: Companies Pay Off Al Sharpton to Avoid 'Racist' Label

Shakedown Sharpton learned all this from Jessie Jackson...

Sony Pictures Entertainment isn't the first corporation to reach out to the Rev. Al Sharpton for help with its image in the black community, and the New York Post reported Sunday that Sharpton allegedly gets paid to keep from calling the companies racist.

Sharpton's National Action Network has received hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past decade from companies eager to gain his support or simply to keep him quiet, the Post said.

"Al Sharpton has enriched himself and NAN for years by threatening companies with bad publicity if they didn’t come to terms with him," National Legal & Policy Center Ken Boehm told the Post. "Put simply, Sharpton specializes in shakedowns."

A typical scenario involves Sharpton confronting a company over accusations of racism. He then meets with company executives, who end up contributing to NAN.

"Once Sharpton’s on board, he plays the race card all the way through," the Post quoted a person it said has worked with Sharpton as saying. "He just keeps asking for more and more money."

The Post cites a New York state inspector general's report on Plainfield Asset Management, which in 2008 gave $500,000 to Education Reform Now, which in turn gave the money to NAN.

The money was intended to promote "educational equality," but it was given at the same time Plainfield was part of a group, Capital Play, trying to build a racetrack and casino in Queens.

Plainfield denied the money was intended to curry favor from Sharpton, but a year later NAN was given another $100,000 from AEG, which had taken over for Capital Play, as a battle over the company's licensing was brewing.

The inspector general's report cited an email between two AEG employees in 2009 claiming that Sharpton had lobbied hard on the company's behalf with then-Gov. David Patterson.

Though Sharpton denied taking any action on the casino's behalf, AEG saw its payments as a way of keeping Sharpton from criticizing them and hurting their efforts, the Post quoted a person it said was familiar with the situation as saying.

Many companies have paid NAN, including American Honda, which was targeted by Sharpton in 2003 for not hiring enough minorities in management. Two months later, the company met with Sharpton and began sponsoring events put on by NAN. Sharpton's protests stopped.

Sharpton also got a $25,000-a-year consulting job with Pepsi after threatening a boycott in 2008 because he said their ads did not include black people.

General Motors for six years resisted Sharpton's requests for money, but relented after Sharpton threatened a boycott over the closing of a black-owned dealership in The Bronx.

Sony Pictures has not announced any donations to NAN after meeting with the movie studio's co-chair Amy Pascal, but Sharpton also has not given his support.

The recent hack of Sony Picture's computer system revealed racially-tinged emails Pascal wrote wondering whether President Barack Obama liked some of the company's movies – all of which were about African-Americans.

"I have had no discussion with her about money," Sharpton told The Post. "There was never even a remote discussion about money."

But he did say soon after the meeting, "The jury is still out on where we go with Amy."

New York mayor's secret past comes to light
De Blasio's unreported history stirring racial protests


Largely unreported in the news coverage of the recent race-related demonstrations is that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has a history of working with extremist activist groups to stir protests.

Further, de Blasio has a largely unreported history with the controversial Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.

ACORN’s renamed group, the New York Communities for Change, is one of the organizations helping to lead the protests over the death of Eric Garner, who was killed by police in July.

De Blasio has been accused by critics, including New York police officers, of helping to fuel racial tension between police and protesters.

One of the major anti-police protests in New York that received media attention was an attempt to shut down Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue shopping district before Christmas.

The protest was led by the group Act Now To End War & Stop Racism Coalition, or ANSWER, together with Occupy Wall Street and at least 10 other so-called economic justice and pro-Palestinian groups.

ANSWER has worked with ACORN and has led protests in the past with MoveOn.org, a group with which de Blasio previously worked.

De Blasio, Soros, MoveOn.org and protests

During the mayoral race last year, New York City media reported billionaire George Soros had endorsed de Blasio. But the reports failed to disclose the billionaire’s major financial donation to de Blasio’s nonprofit as well as the candidate’s cozy working relationship with Soros-funded activist groups. De Blasio worked with some of those groups to stir protests.

In 2011, using his position of public advocate, de Blasio launched a nonprofit called the Coalition for Accountability in Political Spending, or CAPS. The group received its primary launch donation of $400,000 from Soros’ Open Society Institute.

De Blasio used his group and his public office to organize with other Soros-funded groups.

In 2011, Chris Bragg at CityAndStateNY.com reported de Blasio pursued a case against the Minnesota-based Target Corporation after it contributed $150,000 to an organization that promoted a local politician, Tom Emmer, for governor. Emmer had drawn controversy for reportedly opposing a law that sought to combat the bullying of homosexual youth.

De Blasio’s office responded by organizing a protest with MoveOn.org, which is funded directly by Soros as well as by the Soros-funded Tides Foundation.

De Blasio also worked with other Soros-funded groups, noted Bragg, including Common Cause, the advocacy group Public Citizen and the D.C.-based Center for Political Accountability.

According to Braggs, de Blasio first became more familiar with Soros after the politician was invited to speak in 2011 at an intimate panel discussion at the billionaire’s Fifth Avenue apartment.

“I really didn’t know Soros before this,” de Blasio later stated. “At the end of it, I talked to him a bit, and he expressed some appreciation for the notion of finding a constructive way to address this. He said, ‘Stay in touch,’ and we did.”

He added, “Then we went to his staff and said, ‘Look, we’re trying to build this out nationally, and here’s an idea how to do it.’”

De Blasio the ACORN mayor?

In September 2013, WND was first to report de Blasio has a long history with the controversial ACORN, once even steering public funds to an ACORN front group.

De Blasio previously served several terms on the city council and as New York City public advocate from 2010 to the present.

He was endorsed by ACORN for his 2010 public advocate race.

De Blasio spent $43,000 to hire N.Y. Citizens Services Inc., an affiliate of ACORN, to run canvassing, consulting and field work for his public advocate campaign.

As a councilman, de Blasio steered $115,000 in taxpayer dollars directly to ACORN as well as to the organization’s affiliate, the New York Agency for Community Affairs.

De Blasio’s 2010 public advocate campaign was also endorsed by the ACORN-founded Working Families Party, with which the politician demonstrates a larger working relationship.

As a councilman, de Blasio was hired as a consulate by a group called the Progressive America Foundation, which reportedly paid him $33,000 to lobby for election regulations that would ease restrictions on third parties such as the Working Families Party, or WFP. The foundation is closely tied to WFP.

De Blasio turned around and spent $67,740 to hire WFP’s for-profit branch, Data and Field Services, for canvassing and election consulting. The organization was run from the same office as New York ACORN.

WFP was founded by progressive activist Dan Cantor, who also was a founder of the socialist-oriented New Party.

De Blasio reportedly served as executive director of the New York branch of the New Party.

WND previously exposed that President Obama himself was listed in New Party literature as a member.

De Blasio is clearly still supported by the ACORN nexus.

Bertha Lewis, the former executive director of ACORN, spoke for de Blasio at numerous events during the mayoral election.

“I’ve known Bill for decades, and we’ve fought on the front lines together. We’ve organized together,” Lewis said, according to EAG News.

“[He's] proud to say he’s liberal. [He's] proud to say he is severely progressive and was proud to stand with me, to back me, to back ACORN, and said, ‘We will march down the street together and I dare you, I dare you, to say something against my friend!’” Lewis continued.

De Blasio reportedly served as executive director of the New York branch of the New Party.

WND previously exposed that President Obama himself was listed in New Party literature as a member.

De Blasio is clearly still supported by the ACORN nexus.

Bertha Lewis, the former executive director of ACORN, spoke for de Blasio at numerous events during the mayoral election.

“I’ve known Bill for decades, and we’ve fought on the front lines together. We’ve organized together,” Lewis said, according to EAG News.

“[He's] proud to say he’s liberal. [He's] proud to say he is severely progressive and was proud to stand with me, to back me, to back ACORN, and said, ‘We will march down the street together and I dare you, I dare you, to say something against my friend!’” Lewis continued.

EXPOSED: FERGUSON RIOTS AND NYC ANTI-POLICE PROTESTS FUELED BY REVOLUTIONARY COMMUNIST PARTY MOVEMENT

OBAMA PRESIDENCY EMBOLDENS COMMUNIST PARTY IN AMERICA TO MAKE AGGRESSIVE MOVES

If you had been paying close attention to the signs carried by the endless waves of street protesters during the Ferguson riots and then those in New York City against the police, you would have seen at the bottom “revcom.us”. Most of us ignored that, but a quick visit to the website that created those signs revealed something very interesting…communists.

RevCom is the website for Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. Their goal is to inflame and incite till the streets run with blood and anarchy prevails. In his bio, it reads “Bob Avakian came alive as a revolutionary in the 1960s—taking part in the great movements of those days, and especially working and struggling closely with the most advanced revolutionary force in the U.S. at that time, the Black Panther Party.” source

After 6 years of the Marxist community organizer from Chicago, Barack Obama, America has been sufficiently softened up socially and morally to receive the pernicious propaganda from not only the Revolutionary Communist Party, but from all avenues of degenrate Socialism, Marxism, and any other type of bottom-feeding “ism” that lurks out there.

RevCom feels that the mood in America is ripe for violence and rebellion, and judging by the thousands of “useful idiots” on the streets protesting over the past few months, it looks like they are correct. But do not believe for one, single second that these protests reflect the “will of the people”, they do not. This is nothing more than egregious community organizing ala the Chicago Way.

This is not the exercising of our right to freedom of speech, this is anarchy and mass mind control. Like Obama, they are looking to steal your America, and replace it with the Communist vision.

Next time you see protests in the street, take a good look at the signs they are holding. You are being played for a chump, and they count on your indifference and apathy to succeed.

Southern Baptist leaders call for integrated churches
1/24/15

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Leaders in nation's largest Protestant denomination are preaching that integrated churches can be a key driver of racial justice in society. But that could be a hard sell to those sitting in Southern Baptist Convention congregations.

The Rev. Russell Moore, who leads the Southern Baptist's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, is one of several white leaders calling for multiethnic congregations in the wake of the unrest spurred by the killings of black men by white police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City.

"In the church, a black Christian and a white Christian are brothers and sisters," Moore wrote recently. "We care what happens to the other, because when one part of the Body hurts, the whole Body hurts. ... When we know one another as brothers and sisters, we will start to stand up and speak up for one another."

The effort has taken on particular urgency for Moore and other Southern Baptist leaders who have been working to overcome the denomination's history. The convention was formed in 1845 in a split with other Baptists when Southern Baptists resolved to continue allowing slave owners to become missionaries.

During the civil rights movement, Southern Baptists were largely silent or actively opposed ending segregation. The denomination eventually declared racism a sin, and in 2011 renewed efforts to reach out to Latinos, African-Americans and others. The next year, the denomination elected its first African-American president, the Rev. Fred Luter, Jr.

Moore's commission has also organized a leadership summit called "The Gospel and Racial Reconciliation" to be held this spring.

Moore said he has two goals for the summit. He wants to spur churches to work for racial reconciliation by articulating it as a Gospel demand. And he wants to facilitate personal relationships between Southern Baptists of different races.

But some would also like to see concrete efforts to integrate the Southern Baptist Convention, especially at the level of leadership.

"The church lacks the moral authority to address the world about race before we set our own house in order," said the Rev. Dwight McKissic, a black Southern Baptist pastor in Arlington, Texas.

While he praised recent statements by SBC leaders, he also noted that the denomination continues to employ all whites as top executives and seminary presidents.

"It's obvious the rhetoric and reality is not matching," he said.

Nonwhite congregations made up 20 percent of the Southern Baptist Convention's nearly 51,000 congregations in 2012, the most recent year statistics are available from the denomination. But less than 1 percent of those congregations are multiethnic. The vast majority of Southern Baptists attend a church predominantly filled by people of their own race, be it black, white or Hispanic. The situation is nearly identical in most Christian denominations in the United States.

Despite that lack of integration, a phone survey of about 1,000 churchgoers by Lifeway Research recently found that only 37 percent of evangelicals thought their churches needed to become more ethnically diverse. The survey was not broken down by denomination.

David W. Key Sr., director of Baptist Studies at Emory University's Candler School of Theology, said the convention adopted a resolution in 1995 recognizing and apologizing for its historic role in supporting slavery and Jim Crow policies. If the denomination had also set out to address the inequalities those policies had wrought, it could have done a lot over the past two decades, he said.

Moore said he agrees that things are changing too slowly within the SBC, but he sees signs of hope. He points to the work of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary President Danny Akin, who has made recruiting and educating a racially diverse group of future pastors a key goal.

Akin said he doesn't think the patterns and structures built up at the SBC over more than a century can be changed without an active and intentional effort.

"My grief is we're late to this party," he said. "We should have been leading the way. The Christian church should be the first to speak to issues of discrimination and injustice ... not sitting back."

http://news.yahoo.com/civil-rights-landmark-bridge-named-reputed-kkk-leader-194223754.html
Civil rights landmark bridge is named for reputed KKK leader
3/4/15

SELMA, Ala. (AP) — When the nation's first black president steps onto the Edmund Pettus Bridge to honor the marchers beaten there 50 years ago, he'll be standing on a structure that's at once synonymous with the civil rights struggle and a tribute to a reputed Ku Klux Klan leader.

The latter fact had all but faded from local memory until recently, when a Selma student group launched an online petition to rename the landmark bridge.

During his 50th anniversary address Saturday, President Barack Obama will be flanked on one side by a new historic marker commemorating "Bloody Sunday," when white police beat demonstrators marching for black voting rights on March 7, 1965. The sign, erected earlier this year by the state tourism department, notes Obama's 2007 appearance there just before his election and the accolades for "Selma," the recent film about the march.

It offers no details about Edmund Winston Pettus, a Confederate general and U.S. senator who lived in Selma after the Civil War. The Encyclopedia of Alabama, an online database sponsored by the University of Alabama, Auburn University and the Alabama Department of Education, says Pettus held the title of grand dragon of the Alabama Klan in 1877 — an assertion that's questioned by some historians.

Just beyond the other end of the bridge, a billboard erected recently bears a heroic image of another Confederate general, Klan founder Nathan Bedford Forrest. The ad, sponsored by a group dedicated to honoring Forrest, invites visitors to see Selma's "War Between the States" historic sites; next month is the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Selma, in which Forrest fought.

As the "Bloody Sunday" anniversary approaches, a student group in Selma is petitioning to rename the bridge, whose twin metal arches soar above the murky Alabama River. The online petition, addressed to Selma Mayor George Patrick Evans and to the National Parks Service, has been up for about two weeks. It does not propose a new name for the bridge.

John Gainey, executive director of Students UNITE, a racially integrated youth group that began the petition, said having a white supremacist's name attached to the city's most visible landmark illustrates the city's deep racial divisions a half-century after the marchers were beaten at the bridge.

Just as in the 1960s, Gainey said, Selma is split by race. Blacks attend public schools, most whites go to private academies and many blacks still live in run-down shanties while whites occupy nice homes with manicured lawns, he said. Yet the town of nearly 20,000 people is about 80 percent black.

"We think it really does represent something larger," said Gainey.

The Rev. Joseph Lowery, a veteran civil rights leader, agrees the bridge's name should be changed to quit honoring someone with alleged Klan ties.

"They're responsible for too much death and misery. We don't need to honor them," said Lowery, a lieutenant of Martin Luther King Jr. who participated in the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery march. "I'm with the kids. Let's change it."

However, Selma historian Alston Fitts doubts Pettus had anything to do with the KKK. Although the city was a hub of racial animus in the 1960s, Selma was known as a "safe place" for blacks aligned with liberal Republicans after the Civil War during Reconstruction partly because of a lack of Klan activity, he said.

"He was a pretty lousy Klan leader if that's what he was," said Fitts.

Pettus' views on race were widely known during Reconstruction. In July 1871, when Pettus testified before a congressional committee investigating the Klan, he made it clear he believed whites, not blacks, were the victims in the post-Civil War South.

Pettus asserted that any campaign of intimidation was being waged by Republicans and "carpet-baggers" seeking to incite blacks to commit "acts of aggression on their part against the white people," according to congressional archives.

Michael Fitzgerald, a professor of history at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, is researching a book on Reconstruction-era Alabama. He said he hasn't found "persuasive evidence" that Pettus was a Klan officer or even member, but he said Pettus was "almost certainly" involved with the White League, a later terrorist organization.

"He is a Confederate general, he is a Democratic leader when white supremacy is their slogan — is what they exist to do," he said. "What I would say is Edmund Pettus is definitely a strong white supremacist."

An attorney who entered the Confederate army as a major in 1861 and rose to the rank of brigadier general by 1863, Pettus was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1897 after Reconstruction and served until his death in 1907 at age 86.

Pettus' legacy was still well known in Selma when the bridge was constructed just east of downtown in 1940, so the span was named for a man revered locally as a tenacious Southern leader. With Jim Crow laws still in effect, blacks had virtually no say in the decision.

And until now, there has never been a serious effort to rename it.

Officer Darren Wilson exonerated in DOJ report

Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson is in the clear after a report by the Department of Justice was released yesterday that found no evidence of wrongdoing on his part.

Looks like they'll have to recall all those "Hands Up! Don't Shoot" T-shirts.

ABC News:

    The department of Justice announced today that police officer Darren Wilson will not be charged in the death of Michael Brown.

    "There is no evidence upon which prosecutors can rely to disprove Wilson's stated subjective belief that he feared for his safety," the DOJ criminal report said.

    According to the report, Wilson "saw Brown reach his right hand under his t-shirt into what appeared to be his waistband."

    Accounts that Brown put his hands up are "inaccurate because they are inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence," the report says.

    Witness accounts were "inconsistent" and "changed over time," it also said.

We knew that already from the St. Louis County autopsy report - that was immediately dismissed by protestors. But "Hands Up! Don't Shoot" will enjoy a long life in the racialists protests. The legend is secure, the narrative, set. No matter how many reports come down debunking the notion that black kid was gunned down in cold blood, since it doesn't fit into the myth, they will be ignored.

AG Holder apologized to the people of Ferguson that DOJ would be unable to persecute Wilson:

    "The promise I made when I went to Ferguson and at the time that we launched our investigation was not that we would arrive at a particular outcome, but rather that we would pursue the facts, wherever they led," said US Attorney General Eric Holder. "Our investigation has been both fair and rigorous from the start. It has proceeded independently of the local investigation that concluded in November. And it has been thorough: as part of a wide-ranging examination of the evidence, federal investigators interviewed and re-interviewed eyewitnesses and other individuals claiming to have relevant information and independently canvassed more than 300 residences to locate and interview additional witnesses."

    Holder added, "This conclusion represents the sound, considered, and independent judgment of the expert career prosecutors within the Department of Justice. I have been personally briefed on multiple occasions about these findings. I concur with the investigative team’s judgment and the determination about our inability to meet the required federal standard."

The report on the Ferguson police department is another story. The DOJ all but put white hoods on the police:

    As detailed in our searing report ... this investigation found a community that was deeply polarized; a community where deep distrust and hostility often characterized interactions between police and area residents," said US Attorney General Eric Holder. "A community where local authorities consistently approached law enforcement not as a means for protecting public safety, but as a way to generate revenue. A community where both policing and municipal court practices were found to disproportionately harm African American residents. A community where this harm frequently appears to stem, at least in part, from racial bias – both implicit and explicit. And a community where all of these conditions, unlawful practices, and constitutional violations have not only severely undermined the public trust, eroded police legitimacy, and made local residents less safe –- but created an intensely charged atmosphere where people feel under assault and under siege by those charged to serve and protect them."

Should a report by the most important law enforcement department in the United States government be "searing"? Shouldn't it be cold, dispassionate, and factual? Holder destroyed the credibility of his own report with that characterization, revealing his personal and professional bias.

Three officers have been identified as sending clearly racist emails. One has been fired and the other two placed on administrative leave. There were 161 accusations of excessive force between 2010 and 2014. Only one case was founded and no officer was disciplined. Does that establish a pattern and practice of discriminatory policing.

Like most police forces the size of Ferguson, questions can be raised about their lack of training and general professionalism. But in this case, it appears that there is tremendous dysfunction between police and the citizen largely as a result of erroneous perceptions of police on the part  blacks, and a lack of understanding of the community they serve on the part of police. Simply hiring more black police officers and holding "diversity training" sessions is not going to solve the problem. Only consistent dialogue involving all parties will begin to remove the distrust in the community and help the police protect law abiding citizens.

Police: 19-year-old dies after shot by Wisconsin officer

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Protesters carrying signs reading "Black Lives Matter" gathered Saturday, hours after an officer fatally shot a 19-year-old black man who authorities said assaulted the officer in the man's apartment.

Police Chief Mike Koval said the man was shot Friday night after an altercation in which the officer was knocked down by a blow to the head. Koval did not know whether the man was armed, but said "initial findings at the scene did not reflect a gun or anything of that nature that would have been used by the subject." The officer's name, race and years of service has not been released.

Authorities also did not release the name of the victim, who died at a hospital. But Sun Prairie High School Superintendent Tim Culver said in a statement that it was Tony Robinson, who graduated in 2014.

Several dozen gathered outside the Dane County Public Safety Building on Saturday before starting to walk toward the scene of the shooting, holding signs that read, "Black Lives Matter" — a slogan adopted by activists and protesters around the nation after recent officer-involved deaths of unarmed black men. Protesters also shouted the slogan Friday night after the shooting.

"My son has never been a violent person. And to die in such a violent, violent way, it baffles me," said Andrea Irwin, who told WKOW-TV on Friday night she is Robinson's mother.

The state Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting under a 2014 Wisconsin law that requires police departments to have outside agencies probe officer-involved deaths. State Attorney General Brad Schimel said the department will not share details of the investigation until it is finished.

"We are resolved that the result of that investigation will be one in which the public can have confidence," he added.

Madison, about 80 miles west of Milwaukee, is the state capital and home to the University of Wisconsin's flagship campus. About 7 percent of the city's 243,000 residents are black.

Koval said police were called about 6:30 p.m. Friday because the man was jumping into traffic. A second call to police said the man was "responsible for a battery," Koval said.

The officer went to an apartment, which neighbors said was Robinson's, and forced his way inside after hearing a disturbance. Koval said the officer was assaulted by the 19-year-old and then fired at him. Koval said he believes more than one shot was fired.

Neighbors said Robinson's apartment is in a two-story gray house on the block of Williamson Street, known to many as Willy Street. Many walked to nearby restaurants and cafés on Saturday.

Grant Zimmerman said Robinson would run between his apartment and his roommate's mother's house across the street: "He runs back and forth across the street all the time, even in the middle of traffic."

Olga Ennis, a neighbor and family friend, said Robinson was well-liked. "He was a beautiful kid," Ennis said. "He wouldn't hurt a fly."

She said many in the community don't trust police officers. "We're afraid of the cops," she said. "Who do you call for help now?"

The shooting came days after the U.S. Justice Department cleared Darren Wilson, the white former Ferguson, Missouri, officer who shot Michael Brown, of federal civil rights charges in the death of the 18-year-old, who was black and unarmed. A second report found patterns of racial profiling, bigotry and profit-driven law enforcement and court practices in the St. Louis suburb.

Koval referenced recent officer-involved deaths across the nation, saying "it's understandable that the reaction at the scene and of some of our citizens is extremely volatile, emotional and upsetting."

Mayor Paul Soglin called it "a tragedy beyond description," according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

"I expect there will be a lot of anger and frustrations, particularly from friends," Soglin said. "I hope as the pain eases that something constructive will come of this."

Sharon Irwin, who told the newspaper Friday night she was Robinson's grandmother, urged protesters to be peaceful.

"I think you need to rise up but I don't want violence," she said.

Messages were left with Robinson's mother and the Madison police department.

Colin Powell Still Sees 'Dark Vein' of Intolerance in GOP
3/8/15

Speaking on the day following the 50-year anniversary of "Bloody Sunday" in Selma, Alabama, the first African-American Secretary of State Colin Powell said he still sees a "dark vein" of intolerance in the Republican Party, echoing comments that he made in 2013.

"I still see it. I still see it in the Republican Party and I still see it in other parts of our country. You don't have to be a Republican to be touched by this dark vein," Powell told ABC's George Stephanopoulos Sunday on "This Week."

"We've come a long way, but there's a long way to go. And we have to change the hearts and minds of Americans. And I see progress, especially in the younger generation," Powell added.

President Obama, along with former President George W. Bush, was in Selma Saturday to mark the anniversary of the seminal moment in the civil rights movement. They were joined by Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, who was brutally beaten during the march out of Selma that day in 1965.

"What that bloody Sunday event did for the nation was to hold up a mirror in front of all Americans and said, 'Look, this is what's going on in this country. This cannot continue,'" Powell said.

Powell also echoed one of the theme's of Obama's speech in Selma, noting that while progress has been made on race relations, the "march is not yet over."

"We've made enormous progress. If we hadn't made progress, [President Obama] wouldn't have been standing there, Eric Holder wouldn't have been with him and I wouldn't be here right now," Powell said.

"But we still now have hurdles that we have to get over," Powell added, noting the battle in some states over voter identification laws.

The former secretary of state also weighed in on the Justice Department report released this week that found systemic discrimination against African-Americans by the police department in Ferguson, Missouri.

Powell said he was "shocked" by the report, but was not taken completely off guard.

"I was shocked but not that surprised, frankly, George. I know these things have existed in other parts of our country. This shouldn't have been that great a surprise to any of us. But it's not throughout the country," Powell said.

During the interview on "This Week," Powell declined to comment directly on the controversy that has engulfed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton following revelations she used a private email account while she headed the State Department.

"I can't speak to Mrs. Clinton and what she should do now. That would be inappropriate," said Powell, who helped modernize the State Department through new computers and early use of e-mail during his time as secretary of state.

"In order to change the culture, to change the brainware, as I call it, I started using it in order to get everybody to use it, so we could be a 21st century institution and not a 19th century,"
Powell said of his own e-mail practices. "But I retained none of those e-mails and we are working with the State Department to see if there's anything else they want to discuss with me about those e-mails."

Wisconsin capital marked by third day of protests after police shooting
3/8/15

MADISON, Wi. (Reuters) - Activists protested for a third day in Madison, Wisconsin, on Sunday over the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman, the latest in a string of killings that have intensified concerns of racial bias in U.S. law enforcement.

More than 100 people angry over the death of Tony Robinson Jr. marched through the streets of Madison toward the capital building on Sunday evening, carrying signs, beating drums and chanting "The people united will never be defeated."

Earlier scores of people who took part in a sign-making event designed to involve children in the civil action rallied outside the apartment home where Robinson died.

Robinson, 19, was shot in Madison, Wisconsin's capital, on Friday evening after Officer Matt Kenny responded to calls about a man dodging cars in traffic who had allegedly battered another person, Police Chief Mike Koval said.

Kenny, 45, followed the suspect into an apartment, where the officer was struck in the head, according to Koval. Kenny then shot the unarmed teen, who died later in a local hospital.

Last year, the deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City triggered a wave of demonstrations against the use of excessive force by law enforcement officers.

Kenny is on paid administrative leave while the Wisconsin Department of Justice conducts an investigation.

In a statement on the city's website, Madison Mayor Paul Soglin called the shooting "a tragedy beyond description" and said the city would be transparent in communicating results of an investigation into the shooting.

He noted that the incident occurred on the same weekend as the 50th anniversary of the "Bloody Sunday" march in Selma, Alabama, a turning-point in the U.S. civil rights movement. Kenny, a 12-year veteran of the Madison Police Department, was exonerated in a police shooting in 2007 and even earned a commendation in the incident, Koval said.

According to media reports, a 48-year-old man in that instance was shot to death after he pointed a gun at officers and refused to drop his weapon. The weapon was later determined to be a replica of a .38-caliber handgun.

Wisconsin court records show that Robinson pleaded guilty to armed robbery last year and received a probated six-month sentence. Koval declined to comment on Robinson's record.

Wisconsin family, protesters seek justice for teen shot by police
3/9/15

MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - Close to 2,000 students marched in Wisconsin's capital on Monday to protest the fatal police shooting of an unarmed biracial teenager, while his family demanded justice and the police chief apologized.

Students crowded into the rotunda of the state Capitol in the morning, chanting and waving signs to protest the death of Tony Robinson, 19, shot on Friday by a white police officer.

Later, Turin Carter, Robinson's uncle, said his family was calling for a thorough investigation and was concerned about the "systematic targeting of young black males," but did not endorse blanket anti-police sentiments.

"We are not proponents of anti-police (attitudes)... We understand that law enforcement is necessary and mandatory and we need to change our mindset about the police," Carter said at a news conference outside the house where Robinson was shot.

Standing near a memorial of candles and balloons, Carter said it was simplistic to call Robinson African American, saying he had a mixed heritage and his racial ambiguity was a central issue in his life.

Police shootings across the country have intensified concerns of racial bias in law enforcement.

Many teenagers at the morning protests were from Robinson's alma mater, Sun Prairie High School.

"There is an indifference between people and police. We all need to come together," said Ali Asafford, 15, after leaving class at Madison's East High School. The march was orderly and police presence was minimal.

Officer Matt Kenny, the 12-year police veteran who shot Robinson, is on paid administrative leave while the Wisconsin Department of Justice investigates the shooting. In 2007, Kenny was involved in a fatal shooting that was found to be justified.

Police Chief Michael Koval apologized on Monday after praying with Robinson's grandmother over the weekend and pledging transparency in the investigation.

"Reconciliation cannot begin without my stating 'I am sorry,' and I don't think I can say this enough. I am sorry. I hope that, with time, Tony's family and friends can search their hearts to render some measure of forgiveness," Koval wrote in his blog.

Attorney General Brad Schimel asked the public to be patient with the investigation, saying his office would not be able to disclose details since it could taint testimony from witnesses.

Official efforts to be transparent, apologetic and light-handed with protesters followed months of heightened attention to police use of deadly force across the United States.

Last year, the police shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, set off weeks of protests that sometimes turned violent. Police reaction was criticized as heavy-handed, and critics were outraged at the long delay in releasing the name of the officer who shot Brown.

Madison, a city of 240,000 people about 80 miles (130 km) west of Milwaukee, has a mostly white population. The city is 7 percent African-American, U.S. Census figures show.

On Friday night, Kenny, 45, responded to reports of an assault and a man dodging cars in traffic. Kenny followed the suspect into a dwelling. Koval said the officer was struck in the head and then shot the unarmed teen.

Last year, Robinson pleaded guilty to armed robbery, and was placed on probation. Sentencing documents show it was his first brush with the law, and he was not the armed person in the group that committed the robbery.

Concern about Wisconsin's own history of police use of deadly force prompted passage of a law last year requiring independent investigators to probe such incidents. The bill had support from police associations.

The head of the local NAACP chapter said the Madison police department did not engage in the sort of racial targeting that the U.S. Justice Department found prevalent in Ferguson.

"I have observed what I think is a very effective community policing structure, and I think it makes a difference," said Greg Jones, president of the Dane County chapter of the advocacy group.

The Ferguson Hoax and Media Truth Telling

You know the standards of the media have hit rock bottom when a liberal commentator makes news for telling the truth. Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post and MSNBC has become a media star for his belated recognition of the "Hands up, don't shoot" lie out of Ferguson, Missouri. Better late than never, except for the fact that this liberal narrative was always in dispute. There was never any legitimate reason to believe that Police Officer Darren Wilson had simply fired on Michael Brown for no reason.

The appropriate reaction to Capehart's Damascus Road conversion to the truth should be: What took you so long? And what will you do to make sure you never fall for such a vicious lie again?

Don Irvine, the chairman of Accuracy in Media, notes in his blog on the AIM website that Capehart admitted the narrative was wrong after the Department of Justice found Wilson's side of the story to be true. Capehart said, "What DOJ found made me ill." Irvine commented, "I would be ill too if I had helped push a false narrative that gave fuel to the riots in Ferguson that have cost businesses and taxpayers millions of dollars, and ruined the career of Officer Wilson."

The people who should be ill are those who depend on Capehart and others like him for the truth. Capehart is just trying to recover some of the credibility he never had in the first place.

Those of us who don't take Capehart and his ilk seriously as arbiters of truth are watching this celebration of his one-time truth-telling as an example of how, for much of the media, lies and distortions are the standard fare. Otherwise, why would telling the truth be so controversial?

But this case is much more than a few liberal commentators like Capehart taking the side of dishonesty and then waking up, months later, to what actually happened.

Colin Flaherty, an award winning reporter and author of Don't Make the Black Kids Angry: The Hoax of Black Victimization and Those Who Enable It, says that what happened in Ferguson was a carefully orchestrated hoax. He notes how in an amazing turnabout, the false claims about an unprovoked murder of a young black man became complaints about too many traffic tickets for black people.

"We now know the Ferguson riots were all about racist traffic tickets and not the relentless white racism and violence that killed yet another black person," Flaherty notes. "The greatest bait and switch of our generation and few reporters even seemed to notice. Why would they? They are used to it by now.

"First they told us about 'hands up, don't shoot.' When that turned out to be a lie, they told us about the Gentle Giant. It continued for months, one lie after another, each discarded, replaced and sometimes recycled." Flaherty reminds us of several of the lies. We were told that Michael Brown was shot in the back, that he was minding his own business, and trying to surrender.

Flaherty adds, "The racial grievance industry and their beards in the press put on and took off each lie like a cheap suit. Cute kids made viral videos with the 'hands up don't shoot' pose, and reminded white people of their relentless racism. Members of Congress followed from the floor of the House.

"The President talked about racists in Ferguson at the United Nations. The parents of Michael Brown were honored guests at the gala dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus. The President greeted them from the podium during his keynote speech to extended applause. Then he talked about Ferguson racism.

"The Attorney General travelled to Ferguson and made [a] 'personal promise' that he would stand with the people of Ferguson. As long as those people were not cops."

Flaherty goes on, "Entire cable networks repeated the lie day after day, guest after guest, promo after promo. Death. Murder. White racism. How could we not see it? Were we so blind, so immersed in white privilege, like a fish unaware of the water?"

As it turned out, according to the DOJ, that Ferguson was all about traffic tickets. "Funny: At the time, no one mentioned the traffic tickets that now stand with the firehoses and police dogs of Selma as icons of racist oppression," Flaherty notes.

The facts were such that the Attorney General had to grudgingly admit what many others had been saying from day one. "The facts of the death and the fairy tale that followed were all concocted, spoon fed to a willing press corps that did nothing but ask for more," he points out.

Then, suddenly, in another diversion from the essential truth of what happened, the media picked up on another narrative—that blacks were the victims of too many traffic tickets. "The day after the Attorney General's confession, the manufactured outrage of Chris Cuomo of CNN was on full display as he and the Brown family attorney railed against the injustice of too many traffic tickets," commented Flaherty.

The media moved on to another issue, without bothering to emphasize how wrong they had been in the months before. This is the performance of a media that promotes and even prefers lies over the truth. The lies, after all, gin up racial controversy and ratings.

Flaherty asks: what about the CNN anchors who were holding the "Hands up, don't shoot" signs on the air?

That's a good question indeed. These included what we called a prominent example of the "fake conservatives" in the media, such as when Margaret Hoover joined her fellow CNN panelists in a "Hands up, don't shoot" display based on the fiction that Brown was surrendering to the police when he was shot.

Hoover has written a book titled, American Individualism: How a New Generation of Conservatives Can Save the Republican Party. This self-described conservative thinks she has the answer to saving the Republican Party. She engaged in that display despite the fact that she said the narrative had been discredited because of witness testimony from the grand jury.

So Hoover engages in something she knows to be untrue, simply because it is the fashionable thing to do. What does this say about her ethical standards? "As a reform Republican, who works for the GOP to broaden its base and reach new constituencies, I see no contradiction between supporting law enforcement and the policy solutions highlighted by these protesters," Hoover says.

The "protesters" were not highlighting "policy solutions," but a deadly and false narrative about alleged police violence. She could have told the truth. Instead, she participated on the air in a display of a false narrative.

Why doesn't she have the decency to apologize? Why doesn't CNN apologize?

Flaherty also wonders why, after the hoax was exposed, we didn't hear one apology from the media. It's because our media have no standards of ethical behavior and conduct. Instead, the media went on with their business, acting as if traffic tickets "justified all the rioting, vandalism, fire-bombing, looting, assaulting, attacks on police, gunfire and other mayhem in and out of Ferguson."

The praise for Capehart for eventually telling the truth may be one way the media can attempt to atone for their sins in this coverage. But it's not good enough.

Tree honoring Ferguson teenager Michael Brown vandalized shortly after being planted



A tree honoring Ferguson teenager Michael Brown has been replaced Tuesday, just hours after it was vandalized.

Despite the hurt and anger caused by the destruction, people in St. Louis say the quick response is more of a statement than the vandalism will ever be.

There are plaques throughout the park next to trees that have grown and tall and strong through the years.

Michael Brown's tree didn't even make it a day.

"If it was intentional then they know they were wrong for doing it because at the end of the day someone lost their life. It could have been them. It could have been one of their family members. I just think it wasn't right," said a passerby.

"It's real sad day when a tree is dedicated and the next day someone comes along and destroys it just for the heck of it," said Gerald Brooks of the Black Caucus of American Library Association.

The Black Caucus of the American Library Association is holding its national conference in St. Louis this summer. The group, which promotes library related careers among African Americans in addition to literacy initiatives and scholarships, dedicated the tree as a symbol of healing leading up to the conference.

Leaders are thrilled to see the replacement tree already planted and the vandalized tree re-planted nearby.

There are Ferguson residents who wonder about whether it's proper for an outside group to dedicate a tree here, no matter how well-meaning.

The association has now released a statement affirming its commitment to the St. Louis conference and the meaning behind the tree planting.

"Many things have been destroyed in Ferguson but we saw the tree as a symbol of peace, comfort, hope, and renewal,” said Brooks.

Honored for what? Being a thief and a bully? For trying to get a cops gun? For charging a cop? This kid has done more harm to this country than i can think of.

Police kill more whites than blacks, but minority deaths generate more outrage

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison says she wants to see an officer shoot an unarmed white teenager in the back before agreeing that the “conversation about race” is over, but she almost certainly already has received her wish.

An analysis released last week shows that more white people died at the hands of law enforcement than those of any other race in the last two years, even as the Justice Department, social-justice groups and media coverage focus on black victims of police force.

“People keep saying, ‘We need to have a conversation about race,’” Ms. Morrison told the (U.K.) Telegraph in an April 19 interview.

“This is the conversation. I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back,” said Ms. Morrison, who also has won the Pulitzer Prize for her work, which includes the bestsellers “Beloved” and “Song of Solomon.” “And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman. Then when you ask me, ‘Is it over?’, I will say yes.”

Her comments reflect a widespread view that blacks are routinely targeted by law enforcement while whites shot by police are a rarity. Outrage has surged in recent weeks over the high-profile deaths of black men at the hands of police, notably 50-year-old Walter Scott of South Carolina, who was shot in the back and killed April 4 as he tried to run away from an officer after a traffic stop.

The officer who shot him, Michael Slager, has been charged with murder, and the Justice Department is investigating the case for civil rights violations. Department officials announced Tuesday that they have opened a federal probe into the death of Freddie Gray, 25, who died Sunday from injuries sustained while in Baltimore police custody.

Meanwhile, the deaths of whites at the hands of law enforcement typically receive less attention, even when the case is shrouded in controversy. For example, Gilbert Collar, an 18-year-old white student at the University of South Alabama, was shot and killed while naked, unarmed and under the influence of drugs by a black police officer.

The officer, Trevis Austin, was cleared of wrongdoing in 2013 by a Mobile County grand jury in a case that received little media coverage outside Alabama. Mr. Collar’s parents filed a federal lawsuit last year against the officer.

As researchers are quick to point out, FBI data on police shootings by race is notoriously incomplete, which may explain why Peter Moskos, assistant professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice at the City University of New York, decided to use figures from the website Killed by Police.

Based on that data, Mr. Moskos reported that roughly 49 percent of those killed by officers from May 2013 to April 2015 were white, while 30 percent were black. He also found that 19 percent were Hispanic and 2 percent were Asian and other races.

His results, posted last week on his blog Cop in the Hood, arrived with several caveats, notably that 25 percent of the website’s data, which is drawn largely from news reports, failed to show the race of the person killed.

Killed by Police lists every death, justified or not, including those in which the officer had been wounded or acted in self-defense.

“The data doesn’t indicate which shootings are justified (the vast majority) and which are cold-blooded murder (not many, but some). And maybe that would vary by race. I don’t know, but I doubt it,” Mr. Moskos said on his blog.

Adjusted to take into account the racial breakdown of the U.S. population, he said black men are 3.5 times more likely to be killed by police than white men. But also adjusted to take into account the racial breakdown in violent crime, the data actually show that police are less likely to kill black suspects than white ones.

“If one adjusts for the racial disparity in the homicide rate or the rate at which police are feloniously killed, whites are actually more likely to be killed by police than blacks,” said Mr. Moskos, a former Baltimore cop and author of the book “Cop in the Hood.”

“Adjusted for the homicide rate, whites are 1.7 times more likely than blacks die at the hands of police,” he said. “Adjusted for the racial disparity at which police are feloniously killed, whites are 1.3 times more likely than blacks to die at the hands of police.”

Mr. Moskos listed two possible reasons for the racial disparity. The first is that police assigned to largely black neighborhoods face “more political fallout when they shoot, and thus receive better training and are less inclined to shoot.”

The second is that police assigned to black communities with high crime rates are more accustomed to dangerous situations and thus are more likely to be able to resolve them without resort to lethal force.

Figures on police shootings by race are thin on the ground, but Mr. Moskos’s results have some support: The investigative journalism website ProPublica came up with a similar percentage in an Oct. 10 article, reporting that 44 percent of all those killed by police were white, using FBI data from 1980 to 2012.

The fact-checking website PolitiFact concluded in August 2014 that police kill more whites than blacks after the claim was made by conservative commentator Michael Medved. PolitiFact cited data from the Centers for Disease Control on fatal injuries by “legal intervention” from 1999 to 2011.

“Over the span of more than a decade, 2,151 whites died by being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks. In that respect, Medved is correct,” said PolitiFact.

But PolitiFact gave his assertion a “half true” rating because whites make up 63 percent of the population, while blacks make up just 12 percent.

“Yes, more whites than blacks die as a result of an encounter with police, but whites also represent a much bigger chunk of the total population,” PolitiFact said in its Aug. 21 post.

But PolitiFact did not take into account the percentage of those by race involved in violent crime or shootings of police, as Mr. Moskos did.

Despite the recent flood of media coverage involving police shootings, Mr. Moskos advised his readers to “keep all this morbidity in perspective,” reminding them that very few people, white or black, will ever be shot or killed by police.

“The odds that any given black man will shoot and kill a police officer in any given year is slim to none, about one in a million. The odds for any given white man? One in four million,” he said. “The odds that a black man will be shot and killed by a police officer is about 1 in 60,000. For a white man those odds are 1 in 200,000.”

Black Rioters in Baltimore Smash Police Cars, Attack Motorists in Frenzied Protest

****LIVE UPDATES****

 

11:19 PM: Boyle reports People were allowed to leave the Orioles’ Stadium at the end of the extra-innings game, right after Baltimore hit a walk-off home run. Seconds earlier, an announcement came over the loudspeaker at the stadium telling fans they were no longer going to be kept in the stadium.

9:58 PM: Investigative reporter Matthew Boyle reports that both he and a family member both tried to escape the scene of destruction and chaos, but were prevented by a forcible lockout. No one is allowed to leave Oriole Park at Camden Yards. There are at least 15,000 people trapped in the stadium — and it’s the bottom of the tenth inning.

From the wires:

Baltimore (AFP) — Protesters smashed police cars and shop windows in downtown Baltimore on Saturday when the biggest demonstration over the death of a young African-American man in police custody turned violent.

More than 1,000 people joined an orderly 90-minute rally at Baltimore city hall demanding justice for Freddie Gray, who died last Sunday from spinal injuries, a week after his arrest in the city’s impoverished west side.

But the mood shifted dramatically when several scores of protesters moved on to the Camden Yards baseball stadium, an hour before the scheduled start of a Baltimore Orioles-Boston Red Sox game.

Live images from local television news helicopters showed a youthful crowd hurling soda bottles and trash cans at police officers alongside the Sports Legends museum and Camden Yards ticket booths.

“Protesters are now breaking windows and throwing items at us,” the Baltimore police department confirmed on its Twitter feed. “We are asking everyone to remain peaceful.”

Others were seen smashing shop windows and blocked intersections, with one motorist getting a rock through her car window, CBS affiliate WBAL reported.

Five police cars were seen by an AFP photographer getting their windows smashed, before riot police moved in.

Tensions have been simmering in the blue-collar Mid-Atlantic port city of 620,000 as investigators try to establish the circumstances that led to Gray’s death.

Speakers at the city hall rally called for President Barack Obama to launch a national inquiry into police misconduct, following a series of fatal confrontations between white police officers and African-American men and boys.

“It has to stop. It really has to stop because it could have been any one of us,” a young male adult member of Gray’s extended family told the crowd.

In a press conference Friday, officials acknowledged Gray should have received medical help at the moment of his arrest, when he was seen by bystanders — and caught on video — howling in apparent pain.

They also revealed that Gray, contrary to police department policy, was not buckled into his seat in the van, which made at least three unexplained stops on its way to the Western District police station.

Gray died Sunday with 80 percent of his spine severed at the neck, lawyers for his family have said. His funeral is scheduled for Monday.

Six officers have been suspended with pay as the police investigation inches closer to a May 1 deadline to submit findings to a Maryland state prosecutor, who could decide to press charges.

Gray’s death is the latest in a string of high-profile confrontations between African Americans and police, including the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in August in the St Louis. suburb of Ferguson.

Violence mars Baltimore protest over police custody death

Protesters rampaged through downtown Baltimore as the city's biggest demonstration yet over the death of a young African-American man in police custody turned violent.

More than 1,000 people had joined a peaceful 90-minute rally at city hall on Saturday, demanding justice for Freddie Gray, 25, who died last Sunday from spinal injuries, a week after his arrest in west Baltimore.

But the mood shifted dramatically when scores of protesters moved to the vicinity of the Camden Yards baseball stadium, scene of an evening Baltimore Orioles-Boston Red Sox game.

Twelve people were arrested, police commissioner Anthony Batts told reporters.

"My family wants to say: Please, please stop the violence. Freddie would not want this," Gray's twin sister Fredericka said.

She spoke alongside Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who said she was "profoundly disappointed" by violence she blamed on "a small group of agitators."

Local television footage showed a crowd hurling traffic cones, soda bottles and trash cans at police officers, before randomly smashing store windows, looting merchandise and vandalizing police cars.

- Varied targets -

Targets included a 7-Eleven convenience store, a Michael Kors fashion boutique, a financial services center and a cellphone shop in Baltimore's landmark Lexington Market.

Street signs were torn down, and one motorist got a rock through her car window, local news media reported. At least one city bus was also struck.

Five police cars were seen by an AFP photographer getting their windows smashed, before riot-equipped police intervened.

Fans at the baseball game, which went beyond the standard nine innings due to a tie, were told to remain in the stadium, "due to an ongoing public safety issue," before the gates were opened for them to leave.

One police spokesman blamed the trouble on "isolated pockets" of individuals who were believed to have come from out of town.

Later in the evening, dozens of police formed a cordon around the Western District police station, scene of nightly protests since Gray died. NBC affiliate WBAL reported two arrests, witnessed from its news helicopter.

Tensions have been simmering in the blue-collar Mid-Atlantic port city of 620,000 as investigators try to establish the circumstances that led to Gray's death.

- Call for inquiry -

Speakers at the city hall rally called for President Barack Obama to launch a national inquiry into police misconduct, following a series of fatal confrontations between white police officers and African-American men and boys.

"It has to stop. It really has to stop because it could have been any one of us," a young male adult member of Gray's extended family told the crowd.

Six officers have been suspended with pay as the police investigation inches closer to a May 1 deadline to submit findings to a Maryland state prosecutor, who could decide to press charges.

CNN: Baltimore Rioters Threatening ‘Anybody… Who Was Not African-American’ [VIDEO]

A CNN correspondent covering the Baltimore anti-police riots live indicated rioters were openly hostile towards “anyone… who was not African-American.” (WATCH: Rioting Punk Taken Down By Baltimore Police)

CNN correspondent Miguel Marquez described the scene on the ground: “It was a frightening scene. Young people, male and female, holding rocks, bricks, bottles, sticks.”

“Very, very angry to see anybody driving in a rental car who was not African-American,” he reported, “and very, very threatening to us.”

    His family has denounced the riots. But Eric Garner's daughter said she understood their frustration
    Police said they needed help from the National Guard after the protestors 'outnumbered and outflanked us'


A state of emergency has been declared in Baltimore after the city transformed into 'an absolute war zone' following the funeral of Freddie Gray.

More than 1,000 Maryland police officers, the Maryland National Guard, and 5,000 officers from neighboring states are on standby in the city and the president has been briefed on the situation as violence continues to escalate. It is the same level of reinforcement the city requested during the riots of 1968 after Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated.

The scenes of destruction were initially billed as anti-police protests to avenge the death of Freddie Gray, who suffered a fatal spinal cord injury in police custody on April 12.

But it rapidly mushroomed into uncontrolled riots.

Fifteen police officers have been injured, many suffering broken bones, and at least one appeared 'unresponsive'. Two of the 15 are in hospital in a serious condition. At least 27 people have been arrested.

A $16 million nursing home built by a Baptist church, which was due to open in December after eight years of construction, has been burned to rubble on the city's east side as violence spread from the west of the city. Just two blocks away, a housing development was also ablaze.

Officials feared the fires were sparked to pull emergency services from the west side of the city, where rioters continued to loot gun stores, check cashing stores, liquor stores and supermarkets well into Tuesday morning. Balaclava-clad mobs were seen ripping the doors off one rifle shop and passing weapons to people on the streets.

When a CVS pharmacy was set ablaze, rioters slashed fire fighters' hoses as they tried to battle the flames.

Even as the governor of Maryland pledged the highest level of support available, police continued to be pelted with rocks and families were forced to flee their homes as fires spread from block to block. 

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake branded the rioters 'senseless thugs' in a press conference as she announced a week-long 10pm-5am curfew for all citizens starting tomorrow night.

By nightfall, groups started moving toward more affluent areas near Camden Yards stadium, prompting Monday night's White Sox v Orioles game to be suspended. College students were told to stay in their dorms and all schools will be closed on Tuesday.

Just hours after Gray was laid to rest on Monday at a service attended by 2,500, including luminaries of the civil rights movement, hundreds of protestors started throwing rocks and stones at dozens of police in riot gear. It soon escalated into uncontrolled destruction.

According to a report by the Baltimore Sun, the unrest grew from a dispute between police officers and students earlier on Monday, when the teenagers started looting stores. Photographs and video during the day have captured scenes of officers throwing rocks, prompting many to accuse law enforcement of fueling the situation.

Families were forced to flee their homes in west Baltimore as it approached morning and nearby stores were being set alight. Video footage emerged of a shopkeeper was also seen being pulled from his store and beaten as the riots spread.

The Gray family has publicly denounced the riots and called for peace. Bill Murphy, the family's attorney, branded the situation 'devastating', adding: 'This won't solve the police problem. This is dangerous to the movement.'

'I think the violence is wrong,' Gray's twin sister, Fredericka Gray, said late Monday. 'I don't like it at all.'

Mr Murphy, said the family had hoped to organize a peace march later in the week.

Mary Koch, another attorney for the Gray family, said it was 'terrible' that riots had overshadowed the 25-year-old's memorial service on Monday.

Her words were echoed by Carron Morgan, Gray's cousin, who told the Baltimore Sun: 'This is not justice. This is just people finding a way to steal stuff.

'We didn't even want people to protest today. It was just a time to grieve for Freddie and to celebrate his life.'

He said on Monday that rather than being out protesting, the family would instead be helping with the clean up efforts the next day.

However, the protesters found support in Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner who died while being restrained by police in New York's Statten Island.

Garner's death sparked outrage that courted international attention, and weeks of protests - but they were incredibly tame in contrast with the scenes in Baltimore on Monday night.

Speaking to CNN's Don Lemon, hours after she attended Gray's funeral in Baltimore, Erica said she does not condone violence but understands the rioters' frustration.

'They had enough,' she said.

'They don't know what else to do. They don't have no [sic] jobs, they don't have proper schooling. These kids have no hope. I'm not condoning what they are doing but they think 'eventually this is going to happen to me, I'm going to be killed by police', so they're making themselves heard.

'Burning down the city is not right but what other choice do we have. We're scared.'

On Monday morning, three of the city's most violent and dangerous gangs - Black Guerrilla Family, Crips and Blood - announced an unprecedented alliance to 'take out' law enforcement officers, in a move that has prompted fears for police safety across the country.

The gangs - all rivals - announced they have entered into an alliance to 'take out' officers. According to Police Commissioner Anthony Batts, the department received intelligence that long-term rivals Bloods and Crips had a meeting in which they planned to kill one police officer each.

Black Guerrilla Family breeds some of the city's most violent convicts. The man who killed two NYPD cops in December last year, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, was believed to have ties to the deadly group.

Crips, whose members wear blue, is one of the largest gangs in the US, and was formed in Los Angeles. Their rivalry with Bloods dates back to the 1960s.

Bloods, whose members wear red, was formed as an alliance for people to seek refuge from Crips, but soon became a crime ring itself.

However, despite the threat, some of the gang members appeared to be showing solidarity with law enforcement - and one Bloods member pulled a Baltimore Sun journalist to safety during a violent commotion.

Earlier in the day, members of Crips and Blood linked arms with Nation Of Islam leaders in the streets in an apparent bid for peace.

Meanwhile, officers were forming lines across the streets, holding up riot shields as rocks were hurled at them. Armored police vans patrolling the streets were also attacked with rocks, and barricades were set alight.

Officers on the ground used pepper spray and tear gas on the crowds, but the measures appeared to have little effect: as soon as they left an area, crowds would return to loot the stores or burn the cars.

Fires were left burning by emergency services apparently to expire on their own, further enraging rioters.

As emergency services battled a burning CVS pharmacy, riot police were forced to circle the fire engine as a barrier against rock-throwing protestors.

Looters were nonchalant and showed their faces.

'We went in there and tore it up,' said a 16-year-old who said he was one of the looters inside the CVS.

Just down the street from the smoldering CVS, business owner Daisy Bush, 61, said: 'The sad part about it is that a lot of people from the community were up there in the CVS, stealing stuff out of it. It's a disgrace.'

Earlier in the day youths threw rocks and bricks at police. Six officers were injured seriously, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts told reporters.

'This is not protesting. This is not your first amendment rights. This is just criminal acts doing damage to a community,' he said.

Mr Batts said they needed the help of the National Guard because of the sheer number of protestors and scale of unrest taking place on Monday.

He added: 'They just outnumbered us and outflanked us. We needed to have more resources out there.'

Batts said authorities had had a 'very trying and disappointing day.'

Congressman Elijah Cummings equated the situation to the unrest in the wake of Martin Luther King Jr's assassination in 1968, when 5,000 National Guard officers were deployed to control the situation.

He said: 'I was thinking back in 68 and 69 when I was in high schools and I thought about the riots and how businesses were being destroyed.

'Destroying property or throwing bottles or things at police, that distracts us from the fact that Freddie Gray died and that we need solutions to the problems that we have with our police department.'

Colonel William Pallozzi, the superintendent of the state police, said a request for up to 500 additional law enforcement personnel in Maryland had been sent. Pallozzi added that the state is putting out a request for up to 5,000 more law enforcement personnel from around the mid-Atlantic region.

Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings and about 200 others, including ministers, tried unsuccessfully to quell the violence at one point Monday night, marching arm-in-arm through a neighborhood littered with broken glass, flattened aluminum cans and other debris. As they got close to a line of police officers, the marchers went down on their knees. They then rose to their feet and walked until they were face-to-face with the police officers in a tight formation and wearing riot gear.

The situation also has political dimensions. Mayor Rawlings-Blake has been severely criticized for her alleged apathy and failure to act earlier.

In an apparent dig at the mayor, the governor of Maryland told a press conference he had been waiting to issue a state of emergency, and said that he signed an executive order 'within 30 seconds' of the mayor's phone call.

Maryland Governor Declares State of Emergency

After the streets of Baltimore turned into a violent war zone, the governor of Maryland declared a state of emergency and activated the national guard last night.

Riots broke out as residents protested police brutality and the excessive police force used against Freddie Gray, following Gray's funeral with "demonstrators hurling rocks at police, destroying patrol cars and looting and torching stores." Gray suffered a fatal spine injury after being in custody of the Baltimore police.

"All are going to be OK but sustained heavy damage to their bodies," Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said in a news conference late Monday night. Batts also said that one police officer was hit in the head, another had severe damage to his knee cap.

The police commissioner said he believes the riots are "dying down" now.

The commissioner also said he understood that several gangs had met and agreed to "take out a police officer" after Gray's funeral.

A curfew has been imposed on the city Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said, calling the rioters "thugs."

"We are deploying every resource possible to gain control of the situation and ensure peace moving forward,'' she said.

Balto Police Commissioner to Parents: Control Your Kids

Police Commissioner Anthony Batts placed the blame for violence in the city on high school students who "thought it was cute to throw cinder blocks at police."

Batts made his remarks at a late night press conference yesterday. He admitted that there is a heavy gang component.

The Hill writes, "An admittedly exhausted Batts claimed that a meeting took place between various gangs including the Bloods and the Crips, in which members pledged to kill police officers following Freddie Gray's funeral earlier today."

But the police chief said it wasn't the gangs but rather the high schoolers. "However, the police chief insisted the main instigators of today's unrest were local 'youthful residents' who 'came out of a local high school' and 'outnumbered and outflanked' police."

"Take control of your kids," Batts urged parents in closing. "This is our city. Let's make a difference."

Here is the MEDIA driving it home

Maddow: The Baltimore Police Are 'A Little Bit Out Of Control'
And She Tries To Get Sun Reporter Erica Green To Agree


 On MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show tonight, the host interviewed Erica Green of the Baltimore Sun, who has been all over the story of the riots. Green was there from the very beginning, and was the first reporter to describe the scene as "all out war" from her vantage point right on the ground in the middle of it.

Green was there filming when an officer was struck in the head with what was likely a brick, drawing blood from his head and requiring his being rushed away for medical attention. After that happened, some of the officers picked up items that were being hurled at them and threw them back at the rioters. Which prompted this gem from Maddow.

    "If they're picking up things that are being thrown at them and throwing them back, that implies to me, just as a lay observer, that the police feel .. that the police are a little bit out of control, or that they may not be using disciplined police tactics."

Maddow prompts Green for agreement, but the reporter doesn't buy in. She describes how the police showed extreme restraint even under the direct assault for "a very long time" during which they "didn't do anything", and that she "is not going to say that they're 'out of control'".

Maddow joins CNN's Wolf Blitzer, who earlier today made an effort to paint a police officer driving fast on a street as an 'inappropriate" and "dangerous" situation. One can only assume Blitzer has never seen an emergency vehicle in use before. And perhaps Maddow has never seen cops who actually are out of control before. Which is surprising given the ample examples the media has provided in the last twelve months.

Iran Supreme Leader: ‘Ridiculous That Even Though US President Is Black, Still Such Crimes Against US Blacks’

The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, is blasting the United States for what he’s calling the country’s “ridiculous” racial inequality and police brutality, labeling the U.S. government a “major enemy to human rights.”

Addressing the 20th annual General Congress of Law Enforcement Forces (LEF) Commanders and Staff on Sunday, Iran’s Supreme Leader criticized American police, saying their “authority is wrong and oppressive.” Khamenei took to Twitter to rail against U.S. law enforcement who he says utilize “power and tyranny” to “kill innocents” amid ongoing riots over the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore.

Quote
Khamenei.ir @khamenei_ir

It's ridiculous that even though US President is black, still such crimes agnst US blacks continue to occur. #BlackLivesMatter #FreddieGray
6:04 AM - 26 Apr 2015

The Ayatollah also adopted several high-profile U.S. cases of police shootings into his posts, including the use of slain African-Americans Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.

“On false pretexts US police shoots ppl on streets. This is a type of power which doesn’t ensure security but leads to insecurity. #MikeBrown,” tweeted Khamenei.

“Power & tyranny are different. In some countries like US, police are seemingly powerful but they kill innocents. #FreddieGray #RekiaBoyd,” he posted on Sunday.

Iran’s Supreme Leader also called out what he views as American hypocrisy on issues of race.

“It’s ridiculous that even though US President is black, still such crimes agnst US blacks continue to occur. #BlackLivesMatter #FreddieGray,” he tweeted.

“They celebrate a day for abolition of slavery but such crimes are committed against the blacks. #EricGarner #TrayvonMartin #BlackLivesMatter,” Khamenei posted on Sunday. “Even abolition of #slavery in #US wasn’t based on humanitarian intents but on North-South wars & conflict b/t landowners & industrialists.”

Khamenei, who is a Muslim Cleric, touted the religion of Islam for its balance of mercy and justice.

“Power with cruelty isn’t favored by #Islam. #Police should embody justice and mercy while being potent,” he tweeted.

Ayatollah Khomeini is the second and current Supreme Leader of Iran, succeeding Ruhollah Khomeini, who became the supreme religious leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, following several years of resistance to Shah Pahlavi. After he was appointed as Ayatollah, Khomeini worked to remove the Shah from power for his associations with Western powers.

Two People Shot in Ferguson While Protestors Rally to Support Baltimore

http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/two-people-shot-ferguson-while-protestors-rally-support-baltimore


Professional Protesters Who Incited Ferguson Violence Doing Same In Baltimore?
Results from data mining analysis


 Fox News is reporting that the same social media accounts which were active during the most violent days of the riots in Ferguson Missouri were active on Monday as the violence in Baltimore began to spike. According to the report, that may be an indication that "professional protesters" may be trying to incite the violence. The information comes from "a leading data mining firm that shared its findings exclusively with Fox News."

    The firm, which asked to remain anonymous because of its government work, found between 20 and 50 social media accounts in Baltimore that were also tied to the peak period of violence in Ferguson. While further analysis is being conducted on the data, it suggests the presence of "professional protesters" or anarchists taking advantage of Freddie Gray's death to incite more violence. 

    (...) One account, which also tracked the recent union protests in New York City as well as other disturbances, tweeted photos of Gray's funeral and used language that seemed to anticipate violence in Baltimore.

    The discovery that some social media accounts were tied to cities 825 miles apart was described to Fox News as “surprising.” While it is possible to spoof accounts and make it appear as if someone is in one location when they are really in another, the data mining firm told Fox News that it can’t fully explain the numbers.

Orioles make drastic schedule changes because of Baltimore riots

For the second straight day the Baltimore Orioles have postponed their scheduled game against the Chicago White Sox due to ongoing unrest in the city, but that was just the beginning of the changes.

The Orioles announced that Wednesday's game against the White Sox will be played, but it will not be open to the public.


The team also said this weekend's three-game series in Baltimore will be moved to Tampa, with the Orioles being the home team against the Rays.

Protests over the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African-American man who died April 19 from spinal cord and other injuries allegedly suffered at the hands of police, have been taking place in Baltimore since Saturday. The demonstrations turned especially violent on Monday following Gray's funeral, which led to the postponement of that night's game at Camden Yards about a half-hour before first pitch.

The Orioles released the news of Tuesday's postponement through their Twitter account:


Monday and Tuesday’s postponed games will be made up as part of a doubleheader on May 28.

The Baltimore Ravens have already announced they were canceling their NFL draft party scheduled for Thursday night at nearby M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore's mayor initiated a citywide curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Commissioner Rob Manfred, who happened to be in Baltimore this week on a previously scheduled visit, had suggested the Orioles could play elsewhere for the time being, like at Nationals Park in Washington.

It’s Official: Police Were Ordered To Stand Down And Let The Baltimore Riots Rage Out Of Control

We now have official confirmation that the rioting in Baltimore on Monday was purposely allowed to spiral out of control.  Up until now, there had been some unconfirmed reports that police in Baltimore had been ordered to “stand down” during the riots, but nobody had been willing to come forward and go on the record.  Now that has all changed.  Michael Lewis is the Sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland and what he has to say is absolutely jaw dropping.  When he saw what was happening in Baltimore, he gathered up some of his fellow officers and drove down to the city to help.  But when he got there, he says that all of the police were being ordered not to take any action and to let the rioters destroy property.  Lewis made this astounding claim during a discussion on a Baltimore radio station…

    A Maryland sheriff who traveled to Baltimore to help law enforcement stop Monday’s riots told 105.7 The Fan that he was stunned when officers alerted him of the orders to stand down.

Lewis says that he never heard the mayor give any particular orders, but he is very clear about the fact that the police were being instructed to “stand down” and to “let them destroy property“….

    “I was sick to my stomach like everybody else. … This was urban warfare, no question about it. They were coming in absolutely beaten down. The [city officers] got out of their vehicles, thanked us profusely for being there, apologized to us for having to be there. They said we could have handled this, we were very capable of handling this, but we were told to stand down, repeatedly told to stand down,” he said. “I had never heard that order come from anyone — we went right out to our posts as soon as we got there, so I never heard the mayor say that. But repeatedly these guys, and there were many high-ranking officials from the Baltimore City Police Department … and these guys told me they were essentially neutered from the start. They were spayed from the start. They were told to stand down, you will not take any action, let them destroy property. I couldn’t believe it, I’m a 31-year veteran of law enforcement. … I had never heard anything like this before in my life and these guys obviously aren’t gonna speak out and the more I thought about this, … I had to say a few things. I apologize if I’ve upset people, but I believe in saying it like it is.”

The claims made by Lewis seem to be confirmed by “a senior law enforcement source” quoted by Fox News.  And this “senior law enforcement source” says that the order to stand down came directly from the mayor…

    Fox News is reporting — citing a senior law enforcement source who spoke with correspondent Leland Vittert — that Democratic Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ordered police to allow rioters to loot stores Monday night, saying, “Let them loot, it’s only property.”

    “This is coming from a very senior law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the orders that were given by the mayor and by her police commanders, down to the very core of the police riot units,” Vittert said on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” Wednesday afternoon. “What I am quoting now from him is, quoting the mayor, ‘Let them loot, it’s only property.’”

If this is true, this is not just a minor scandal.  If what these law enforcement officers are saying is accurate, this is a scandal of monumental proportions.

And could it be possible that the scandal goes even higher?  Did Rawlings-Blake speak to anyone before making this decision?  Could the Obama administration be involved somehow?

In a previous article entitled “12 Unanswered Questions About The Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us To Ask“, I noted that Rawlings-Blake has very close ties to the Obama administration.  Could it be possible that Rawlings-Blake was told to order the police to stand down by someone in the White House?

What we do know at this point is that after public schools were let out on Monday afternoon, high school kids were forced to get off of buses and herded into the Mondawmin mall area where the “purge” that had been hyped on social media was supposed to take place.

We also know that police dressed in full riot gear were waiting for them.

But then once the rioting started, the police pulled back and let it rage wildly out of control.

This all seems very orchestrated to me.

And were they specifically ordered to not even defend their own police vehicles?  On Monday afternoon, there were lots of police vehicles conveniently parked along the streets right in the middle of the riot zones.  But the police officers that those vehicles belonged to were nowhere to be seen.  So why didn’t the police protect their own vehicles?  This all seems very strange.

Dramatic images of police vehicles being smashed and burning wildly have now been seen by hundreds of millions of people all over the planet, and those images send a very powerful message.

Of course the biggest victims in all of this are the impoverished African-American communities where the worst of the rioting took place.  The police were ordered to stand down while these African-American neighborhoods were vandalized, looted and set on fire.  Many businesses that were destroyed will choose to never rebuild, and many others that did survive will flee as soon as they can.  In the end, those neighborhoods will be much worse off than they were before.

So did mayor Rawlings-Blake (or someone above her) purposely betray those communities?

The American people deserve some answers, because this is a very big deal.

First we saw this happen in Ferguson, and now it has happened in Baltimore.

When riots and looting break out where you live, will the police be ordered to “stand down” as well?

Chaos has come to America, and it is only going to get worse.  I hope that you are getting prepared for what comes next.

Law enforcement sources say Freddie Gray suffered head injury in police transport van

An investigation into the death of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray has found no evidence that his fatal injuries were caused during his videotaped arrest and interaction with police officers, according to multiple law enforcement sources.

The sources spoke to ABC7 News after being briefed on the findings of a police report turned over to prosecutors on Thursday.

Sources said the medical examiner found Gray's catastrophic injury was caused when he slammed into the back of the police transport van, apparently breaking his neck; a head injury he sustained matches a bolt in the back of the van.

Details surrounding exactly what caused Gray to slam into the back of the van were unclear. The officer driving the van has yet to give a statement to authorities. It’s also unclear whether Gray’s head injury was voluntary or was a result of some other action.

The Medical Examiner's Office declined to comment on this open investigation and said it does not release preliminary findings.

The Other Man In The Van With Freddie Gray Breaks His Silence

From the beginning, the investigation into what killed Freddie Gray has centered on what happened inside the police transport van.

We knew there was another prisoner inside the van and tonight we hear from him.

WJZ‘s Mike Schuh is the first to speak with Donta Allen about what he heard.

“I am Donta Allen. I am the one who was in the van with Freddie Gray,” Allen said.

The one who the police commissioner calls the second prisoner in the van.

“The second prisoner who was picked up said that he didn’t see any harm done to Freddie at all,” Commissioner Anthony Batts said. “What he has said is that he heard Freddie thrashing about.”

But Allen wants to set something straight.

“All I did was go straight to the station, but I heard a little banging like he was banging his head,” he said.

He tells WJZ he’s angry about an internal police report published in The Washington Post.

“And they trying to make it seem like I told them that, I made it like Freddie Gray did that to hisself (sic),” Allen said. “Why the [expletive] would he do that to hisself (sic)?”

Allen was in the van because he allegedly stole a cigarette from a store on North Avenue.

He was never charged. Instead he was brought straight to the station.

“I talked to homicide. I told homicide the same story.” Allen said.

A story he says is being distorted and now he fears being killed.

“I had two options today right, either come and talk to y’all and get my credibility straight with ya’ll and not get killed by these [expletive] or not tell a true story,” Allen added. “The only reason I’m doing this is because they put my name in a bad state.”

His statements are included in a police report that was today turned over to the city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby.

Prosecutors Charge 6 Baltimore Officers in Freddie Gray Death

Prosecutors here, in an unexpected announcement, said Friday they had probable cause to file homicide, manslaughter and misconduct charges against police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, who died after sustaining a spinal cord injury while in police custody.

In a news conference, the state’s attorney in Baltimore, Marilyn J. Mosby, described repeated mistreatment of Mr. Gray. Time and again, she said, officers abused him, arresting him without grounds and violating police procedure by putting him in handcuffs and leg restraints in the van without putting a seatbelt on him.

Ms. Mosby also said the officers had repeatedly failed to seek medical attention for Mr. Gray after he was injured. By the time he was removed from the van, she said, “Mr. Gray was no longer breathing at all.”

“We have probable cause to file criminal charges,” Ms. Mosby said.

The death, Ms. Mosby said, is believed to be the result of an injury Mr. Gray sustained while riding in the van without a seatbelt.

Ms. Mosby also said that the knife the police say Mr. Gray was carrying had not been a legitimate basis for his arrest. “The knife was not a switchblade, and it is lawful,” she said. She said the officers had “failed to establish probable cause for an arrest.”

As she announced the charges at the War Memorial here, there was cheering from people in the crowd. Dozens of police officers dressed in riot gear stood nearby after days of unrest in the city.

Ms. Mosby said six officers were being charged, one with second-degree murder. She said warrants had been issued for the their arrests; she said she did not know if anyone was in custody.

One officer, Caesar R. Goodson Jr. was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office. Lt. Brian W. Rice was charged with manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment. Officer William G. Porter and Sgt. Alicia D.

City State’s Attorney Says Freddie Gray’s Arrest Illegal, Charges Officers

City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby says Freddie Gray received his critical injuries in Baltimore police custody and has charged all six officers involved in his death.

The state medical examiner’s office turned over Gray’s autopsy on Friday morning, a day after the police turned over their investigation into Gray’s death.

“The findings of our comprehensive, thorough, and independent investigation coupled with the ME’s determination that Mr. Gray’s death was a homicide which we received today, has led us to believe that we have probable cause to file criminal charges,” Mosby said.

She charged all six officers in the death of Gray and said his arrest was illegal.

“Following transport from Baker Street, Mr. Gray suffered a severe and critical neck injury as a result of being handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained inside of the BPD wagon,” Mosby said.

“At no point was he secured by a seatbelt while in the wagon contrary to a BPD general order,” she added. “Despite stopping for the purpose of checking on Mr. Gray’s condition, at no point did he seek nor render any medical assistance for Mr. Gray.”

The officers are being charged with a number of counts of manslaughter, assault and misconduct. One officer will even be charged with a count of murder.

    Officer Caeser B. Goodson, Jr. was charged with second-degree depraved heart murder, involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, two counts of manslaughter by vehicle and misconduct in office.
    Officer William G. Porter was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.
    Lt. Brian W. Rice was charged with involuntary manslaughter, two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
    Officer Edward M. Nero charged with two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
    Officer Garret Miller charged with two counts of second-degree assault, two counts of misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
    Sgt. Alicia White involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of the officers.

“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘No Justice, No Peace,’ your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man,” Mosby added. doesn't that imply these charges were political?

The Baltimore Police Fraternal Order of Police No. 3 issued a letter to Mosby Friday morning on behalf of the officers involved saying that the death was not the officers’ faults and they also requested a special prosecutor citing conflicts of interest with Mosby’s office.

“Each of the officers involved is sincerely saddened by Gray’s passing. They are all committed police officers who have dedicated their careers to the Baltimore City Police Department,” the letter states, “And that has been lost in all the publicity.”

“All death is tragic,” the FOP states. “And death associated with interaction with police is both shocking and frightening to the public.”

The Timeline of Freddie Gray’s
Arrest and the Charges Filed

On Friday, state prosecutors said that they had probable cause to file homicide, manslaughter and misconduct charges against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray. Marilyn J. Mosby, the state’s attorney in Baltimore, described a sequence of events that differed significantly from the


http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/04/30/us/what-happened-freddie-gray-arrested-by-baltimore-police-department-map-timeline.html?_r=0


Timeline of the Events on the Morning of April 12

The state’s attorney in Baltimore, Marilyn J. Mosby, described repeated mistreatment of Mr. Gray. She said officers abused Mr. Gray, arrested him without grounds and violated police procedure by putting him in handcuffs and leg restraints in a van without a seatbelt. This sequence is based on Ms. Mosby’s statements and previous statements by the police.



8:15 a.m.

Initial ContactLt. Brian W. Rice makes eye contact with Freddie Gray, who subsequently runs away. Mr. Rice tells dispatch he is involved in a foot pursuit. Two other officers also begin to pursue Mr. Gray.

8:39:52 a.m.

Mr. Gray ApprehendedThe officers catch Mr. Gray and place him face down with his arms handcuffed behind his back.

8:42 a.m.

Inhaler RequestedMr. Gray says he cannot breathe and requests an inhaler, but he does not receive one. The officers then put Mr. Gray in a seated position and find a folding knife, which Ms. Mosby said was legal. Still, the officers charge him with illegal possession of a switchblade knife. The officers place Mr. Gray down on his stomach, and he begins to flail and scream. They restrain him until the police van arrives.

8:46 a.m.

Stop No. 1Mr. Gray is taken out of the van and placed in handcuffs and leg restraints after the driver complains that he is “acting irate in the back.” He is loaded back into the van, head first, and is still not secured by a seatbelt, as required by department regulations.

8:54 a.m.

Heading to Central BookingMr. Rice directs the driver to take Mr. Gray to Baltimore’s Central Booking and Intake Center.

Between 8:54 and 8:59 a.m.

Stop No. 2According to Ms. Mosby, an officer proceeds to the back of the van to observe Mr. Gray, but at no point does the officer seek or render medical assistance. The police disclosed this additional stop on Thursday, more than a week after providing an initial timeline. They said the new stop turned up on a video taken from “a privately owned camera” and was “previously unknown to us.”

8:59 a.m.

Stop No. 3Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr. calls dispatch and requests additional units here. Mr. Goodson and another officer, William G. Porter, go to the back of the van to check on Mr. Gray. Mr. Gray says that he cannot breathe and requests help. Mr. Porter moves Mr. Gray from the floor to the bench. At no point did the officers render or request assistance.

Shortly after

Stop No. 4Mr. Goodson responds to a request to pick up an additional prisoner, despite Mr. Gray’s situation. Mr. Gray is unresponsive on the floor of the wagon. The new prisoner is loaded into the van on the opposite side, and the van proceeds to the Western District police station.

9:24 a.m.

Arrival at Police StationA medic is called once the van arrives. Mr. Gray is taken to the University of Maryland’s Shock Trauma Center, where he dies a week later.

More Details on the Officers Charged in Freddie Gray's Death
Three white, three black.


 The Washington Post reported more details on the identities of the six officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray, including their racial makeup, and the charges against them:

    The officers — three white, three African American — represent a broad spectrum of experience on Baltimore’s police force. Three of them joined the force only three years ago. Another officer, the driver who faces the most serious charges, is African-American and has been on the force since 1999.

Here is a snapshot of their profiles and more details on the charges according to state’s attorney Marilyn J. Mosby, from the article:

Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr., 45, African-American, on the force since 1999. He drove the van that transported Gray to jail. Goodson is the only one of the officers facing a murder charge. He is charged with second-degree depraved heart murder, a charge used when a suspect is accused of reckless disregard for another person’s life, in addition to involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, manslaughter by vehicle and misconduct in office.

Lt. Brian Rice, 41, white, the highest-ranking officer among those charged, is a 17-year veteran of the department. Mosby said Rice failed to establish probable cause for Gray’s arrest. The lieutenant helped load Gray onto a police wagon, then ordered the driver to stop the vehicle so that he and other officers could remove Gray, handcuff him and place leg shackles on his ankles. Rice is charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

Officer Edward M. Nero, 29, white, joined the force in 2012. When Gray surrendered, Nero handcuffed him. After Gray resisted, Nero held him down until the police wagon arrived. Nero is charged with second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

Officer Garrett E. Miller, 26, white, has been on the force since 2012. He helped load Gray into a police wagon and failed to restrain him with a seatbelt. Miller is charged with second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

Officer William G. Porter, 25, African-American, joined the force in 2012, became involved in Gray’s arrest after Goodson requested back-up as he was driving to central booking, Mosby said. Porter failed to restrain Gray with a seatbelt. Nor did he call for medical help, despite Gray’s request. He is charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct.

Sgt. Alicia D. White, 30, African-American, joined the force in in 2010. The prosecutor said White made no effort to assess Gray’s condition despite having been told he needed medical assistance. She is charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

Baltimore Mayor: 'I Certainly Used the Wrong Phrase'
Still maintains "wished to destroy" comment was "taken out of context"


it wasnt taken out of context

 While continuing to insist that her "wished to destroy" comment was "taken out of context," embattled Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake admitted that she might have "used the wrong phrase" in her controversial statement.

On the weekend leading up to the crescendo of the riots last Monday, the mayor said that she believed it was important to give protestors, as well as those who "wished to destroy," the "space to do so."

"It's a very delicate balancing act," she said, "because, while we tried to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well." (video below)

Though her office quickly released a statement attempting to clarify her comment and accusing critics of having "twisted" her words, the mayor found herself hammered repeatedly for the irresponsible remark.

On Sunday's “Meet The Press” with host Chuck Todd, Rawlings-Blake offered up a partial apology to the public. When Todd asked her if she regrets using the phrase, the mayor reflexively defended herself before finally admitting it was "certainly" a mistake:

    TODD: Do you regret using the phrase ‘space to destroy?

    RAWLINGS-BLAKE: I certainly think that it was taken out of context. Let me say this: I’m from Baltimore, my parents are from here, I’m raising my daughter here. I’m a public defender. As city council person, as mayor, I’ve always worked to strengthen my city. We fought to get those stores in our community. I would never condone rioting. ... Just period. I would never condone it.

    TODD: So wish you didn’t use that phrase?

    RAWLINGS-BLAKE: I certainly used the wrong phrase to talk about what was clear that there were people who took advantage of the peaceful demonstrator’s First Amendment right, and they used it to destroy our city. And I don’t condone it, and we’ll make sure that those individuals will be held accountable.

NAACP urges 'black people' to take up arms
'Want to be looking at our constitutional rights in carrying weapons'


Arkansas black leaders are urging fellow minorities to take up arms, join gun clubs and help curb what they perceive as unjustified violence from police – the latest of many such call-to-arms among members of the black community.

“Law enforcement has to understand, you cannot do what you please when you see us,” said Crittenden County NAACP chief, Shabaka Afrika, in a news conference reported by WTOC.

Crittenden County Justice Commission founder Hubert Bass said locals ought to become better educated, especially about their constitutional rights, and should join gun clubs.

“We’re going to study law,” he said. “What our rights are. We also want to be looking at our constitutional rights in carrying weapons. All police encounters need to be recorded. It’s unfortunate it has to be that way. But it has to be that way.”

Afrika emphasized the NAACP was “not against law enforcement. We need law enforcement. But it has to be accountable,” he said, WTOC reported.

The news conference was called by Afrika and Bass to discuss the shootings of blacks by white police officers around the nation. It comes on the heels of a call by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference just a few weeks ago for blacks around the nation to arm themselves and exercise their Second Amendment rights.

“You know, the SCLC stands for nonviolence,” said Rev. Samuel Mosteller, the president of the Georgia-based group, the news blog Hello Beautiful reported. “But nonviolence hasn’t worked in this instance. You stand there, [police] shoot. You run, they shoot. We’re going to have to take a different tack. Nobody is protecting the black community. I am going to have to advocate, at this point, that all African-Americans [exercise] their Second Amendment rights.”

His call-t0-arms came shortly after police in Smyrna, Georgia, shot to death a black man they claimed tried to run them over with his Maserati.

The sentiment has been echoed by other black leaders.

The president of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, Senghor Baye asppeared on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” and referred to a shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, as a “what comes around, goes around” moment, as WND previously reported.

He said then: “We do not condone shooting police officers or police officers creating brutality against the people. But it’s very important for people to understand that some people who are oppressed and down-pressed don’t have many ways of getting the kind of justice that they deserve. So things of this nature are bound to happen eventually.”

Obama Admin Apologizes to U.N. for American Cops
Promises to prosecute those who "wilfully use excessive force."




The Obama administration apologized Monday to the United Nation's Human Rights Council for American law enforcement personnel whom it described as "willfully us[ing] excessive force," at times with racist motivation. In its defense of its handling of the issue, the administration touts prosecuting over 400 law-enforcement officials and committing itself to take down those found guilty in the future.

The Associated Press reports that the U.N. human rights council—which includes dozens of countries with deplorable human rights records—voiced "widespread concern" about unjust practices by American police. The Obama administration responded by vowing to "rededicate" itself to ensuring that "our civil-rights laws live up to their promise" and touting its punishment of out-of-control personnel:

    "We must rededicate ourselves to ensuring that our civil-rights laws live up to their promise," Justice Department official James Cadogan told delegates, adding that that is particularly important in the area of police practices and pointing to recent high-profile cases of officers killing unarmed black residents.

    "These events challenge us to do better and to work harder for progress through both dialogue and action," he said at the session's opening. He added that the government has the authority to prosecute officials who "willfully use excessive force," and that criminal charges have been brought against more than 400 law-enforcement officials in the past six years.

The council presented calls for changes to other U.S. policies, including abolishing the death penalty, curbing NSA surveillance programs, and closing Guantanamo Bay. 

Administration officials responded with the standard non-answers. On execution, Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Bitkower explained that the "controversy" over executions in America was an ongoing "extensive debate." As for U.S intelligence gathering, Bitkower vaguely defended the programs by saying they are "subject to stringent and multilayered oversight mechanisms."

As for the call to close Gitmo, Brig. Gen. Richard Gross said President Obama has called shutting down Gitmo a "national imperative" and remains committed to the cause despite being thwarted by Congress. The remaining inmates after Obama's transfer of many in recent years, the administration maintained, were all there legally.

The U.S. human rights review was part of the "Universal Periodic Reviews" of U.N. members. The reviews occur every four years. This is the second such review for the U.S, the last occurring in 2010.

Kentucky Sheriff on Shooting Victim: 'We Are Glad That He Is White...'
"...and we shouldn't have to worry about that."


 Nelson County Sheriff Ed Mattingly stated bluntly Monday that officials were “glad” that a man who was shot by a deputy was “white,” adding that though they “shouldn’t have to be worried about that,” they didn’t want “backlash or violence” due to the public being “misinformed” by the media.

In a joint press conference Monday with Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin about the shooting of John Kennedy Fenwick, 25, over the weekend, Sheriff Mattingly said candidly that they couldn't help but "take notice" of the mishandling of police-involved shooting cases by media outlets and were "glad" they wouldn’t have to deal with "misinformed" backlash due to racial implications.

    MATTINGLY: We are glad that he is white, and we shouldn’t have to be worried about that. We do not want any backlash or violence in this community because people have been misinformed.

Mattingly underscored the role the media played in drumming up tension in communities, citing their failure to effectively educate the public about law enforcement and the legal system:

    MATTINGLY: The media has not done a very good job of informing the public, and the public is not educated on how the system actually works. We don’t want those type of troubles in our community.

McCubbin explained the events leading up to the shooting of Fenwick. At around 9 a.m. Sunday, Fenwick was flagged down by an officer in a patrol car for driving a truck he allegedly stole from a local dealership. Fenwick backed the truck into the patrol car and then drove off, allegedly colliding with another patrol car in the process. Another deputy, Bryan Voils, caught up with Fenwick and ordered him to get out of the truck. When Fenwick allegedly tried to disarm Voils, who had his weapon drawn, Voils shot him. Fenwick was hospitalized in critical condition.

Mattingly and McCubbin announced that they had chosen to hand the investigation over the state police to avoid controversy.

Mattingly’s remarks start around the 12-minute mark.

After Giving ‘Space To Destroy,’ Baltimore Mayor Wants Americans To Save Her Skin In Big Way

The dollar costs of the recent Baltimore riots are starting to be added up, and they’re staggering. Not only are these figures climbing into the tens-of-millions of dollars, but Baltimore officials are looking for outside help to pay the bills — that means they want U.S. taxpayers to shell out to bail out the budget of a city criticized by many for doing little to stop the mayhem.

According to an article in The Baltimore Sun, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake — who infamously said she initially wanted to give the Freddie Gray rioters “who wished to destroy, space to do that” — will now lead the charge to seek “reimbursement” from the federal government for Baltimore’s expenses in dealing with the violent protestors, looters, arsonists and trouble-makers who terrorized parts of the city.

Baltimore’s finance director says, at this point, the price tag for the city’s part in covering riot expenses will be at least $20 million — that includes costs of police personnel and equipment. And guess where they want to go to get some of the money to cover that bill?

“Henry J. Raymond, Baltimore’s finance director, said the city can temporarily cover the costs from its rainy day fund while seeking reimbursement for up to 75 percent from Federal Emergency Management Agency,” reports The Sun newspaper.

Those federal funds would, supposedly, be made available if President Obama issues a disaster declaration because of the widespread damage from the racially charged rioting and the police action in response to it. “The $20 million estimate released by city officials does not include the cost to businesses of the unrest. The figure also does not include state or federal costs. It’s unclear when those figures will be tallied.”

To be clear, that estimated $20 million hit to the city’s budget doesn’t take into account the untold cost of repairing or rebuilding some 380 businesses attacked by rioters during the unrest that was sparked by the police-custory death of Freddie Gray. More federal funds could be directed toward getting those businesses going again, according to Bill Cole, president of the Baltimore Development Corp.

“Businesses may also be eligible for loans from the Small Business Administration, which has estimated business damages of at least $9 million. The city will assist those seeking federal funds, Cole said.”

A recent article in the Baltimore Business Journal points out the additional costs to the city in terms of lost revenue because of businesses being shut down as well as tourists and conventions avoiding an area seen as tense and troubled. The report cited the lingering losses to Los Angeles following the riots there close to a quarter-century ago.

Protesters in McKinney, Texas, call for white officer who pulled his gun on black teens at pool party to be fired

Union disputes charges of racial bias


Protesters gathered in McKinney, Texas, on Monday night, three days after a white police officer responding to reports of a disturbance at a pool party was seen acting aggressively toward black teenagers, throwing a bikini-clad girl to the ground and pulling his gun on two others.

The officer, 41-year-old Eric Casebolt, was placed on administrative leave as a video of the incident sparked outrage on social media, where many drew comparisons to recent high-profile cases of police bias in Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore.

Carrying signs that read "Black Lives Matter" and chanting "All lives matter," demonstrators called for Casebolt to be fired.

"He shouldn't keep his job," Jahi Adisa Bakari, the father of another teenage girl at the party, told the Associated Press. "And I'm not going to stop until he is fired."

Protesters marched to the private community pool, which was "temporarily closed" Monday night.

At a press conference Sunday afternoon, McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley said a total of 12 officers responded after the department received "several additional calls" reporting that the teens were "fighting and refusing to leave."

First responding officers encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands. Nine additional units arrived at the scene. Officers were eventually able to gain control of the situation.

In a statement, the Texas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union called for police to release the entire incident report and recording of the 911 calls that the officers were responding to:


While we don’t know all the facts about the party, the crowd, or whether a fight broke out, what we do know is that the police response, as seen on the video, appears to be a textbook case of overuse of force. A well-trained police department would have responded more cautiously, with less hostility, and using sophisticated crowd control methods that favor de-escalation rather than escalation — especially when it comes to youth and children. Without question, guns were not needed and, in fact, risked turning a group of partying teenagers into victims of a potentially deadly encounter.

At a City Council meeting Monday, Nikki Perez, a black resident of McKinney, said that Casebolt "blew his credibility when he opened his mouth and started cursing at the kids."

"I don't excuse the behavior of those teenagers, but if I call 911, then I wouldn't want that cop to respond," Perez said.

Meanwhile, police union officials said that Friday's incident had nothing to do with race.

"The McKinney [Fraternal Order of Police] assures that this was not a racially motivated incident," the union said in a statement to CNN, "and can say without a shadow of doubt that all members of the McKinney FOP and McKinney PD do not conduct racially biased policing."

Benét Embry, a black local radio personality, agreed.

"This was a teenage party that got out of hand," Embry told the AP.

"This was not a racially motivated event — at all. This whole thing is being blown completely out of proportion," he told CNN. "I may or may not agree with everything that the police officer did, but I do believe he was trying to establish order."

Dajerria Becton, the girl who Casebolt pulled to the ground, said she was an invited guest at the party and was obeying his orders to leave when he grabbed her.

"He grabbed me, twisted my arm on my back and shoved me in the grass and started pulling the back of my braids," Becton, 15, told KDFW-TV. "I was telling him to get off me because my back was hurting bad."

In a video statement released Monday, McKinney Mayor Brian Loughmiller said that Casebolt would remain on administrative leave until the department's internal investigation was concluded.

"Chief Conley has assured me that he is working with all deliberate speed to conclude this process," Loughmiller said. "Part of the review will include evaluating the incidents that led to the need for police assistance to try to prevent this type of situation from happening again."

9 dead in ‘hate crime’ shooting at prayer meeting at historic Charleston African American church
How is this a hate crime? They dont even know who did this or why? Does color now equate to hate crime?

Police are searching for a gunman who opened fire and killed nine people Wednesday night during a prayer service at a historic African American church in downtown Charleston, S.C., in one of the worst attacks on a place of worship in recent memory.

At least one other person was injured in the assault.

“I do believe this is a hate crime,” Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen said at a late night news conference, without explaining the basis for his conclusion.

HOW!! Can you possibly call this a hate crime with ZERO evidence? Need to watch this one.

Police have launched a manhunt for the gunman, described as a clean-shaven white male in his early 20s, who has sandy blond hair and a small build. Police said he was wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and Timberland boots. He is believe to be the only shooter. Officers in fatigues, some with K-9 dogs, said they were searching “near and far” for the gunman and pursuing “lots of tips.”

At a nearby Embassy Suites, which was serving as an informal headquarters for church members, people began sobbing and screaming as they learned details about what had happened.

“We just left speaking to members of the families,” Charleston Mayor Joseph Riley (D) said at the news conference. “It was a heartbreaking scene I have never witnessed in my life before.”

[For Charleston’s Emanuel A.M.E. church, one of the oldest in America, shooting is another painful chapter in long history]

Though authorities did not release the names of the victims, the church’s pastor, Clementa Pinckney, who is also a South Carolina state senator, was missing after the shooting and some members of the congregation feared the worst. Indeed, House Minority Leader Todd Rutherford said Pinckney was among the dead, and friends started posting “RIP” condolences on social media.

“Rest in peace my friend Sen. Rev. Clementa Pinckney,” Rep. Samuel Rivers Jr., wrote on Twitter. “When the name of the church dawned on me I tried calling Clementa.”

“Rest in peace to my friend and brother in public service, Senator Clementa Pinckney,” Former state Rep. Anton J. Gunn wrote.

Police said the victims had gathered Wednesday night in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, also known as “Mother Emanuel” church, in downtown Charleston for a prayer meeting when the shooting occurred. The congregation, established in 1816, is one of the oldest African American churches in the United States.

“This is the most unspeakable and heartbreaking tragedy in historic Emanuel AME church, the mother church of the AME churches,” Riley said. “People in prayer Wednesday evening, a ritual coming together, praying and worshiping God. To have an awful person come in and shoot them is inexplicable. Obviously the most intolerable and unbelievable act possible.”

“The only reason someone could walk into a church and shoot people praying is out of hate,” he added. “The only reason. It is the most dastardly act that one could possibly imagine.”

Police said the shooting occurred about 9 p.m. at the church, which is located between Henrietta and Calhoun streets near Marion Square in downtown Charleston. The Rev. Norvel Goff, a presiding elder for the African Methodist Episcopal Church, who was interviewed near the scene, said the suspect “walked in, from my understanding, not so much as a participant, but as a brief observer who then stood up and then started shooting.”

When officers arrived, they determined that eight people had been killed inside the church, Mullen said. Two others were taken to a nearby hospital, where the ninth died, he said. Police said there were survivors but did not elaborate on their condition.

“It’s a very tragic situation. Stressful. Grieving,” Goff said.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R) said in a statement late Wednesday night that she is praying for the victims and their families.

“While we do not yet know all of the details, we do know that we’ll never understand what motivates anyone to enter one of our places of worship and take the life of another,” she said. “Please join us in lifting up the victims and their families with our love and prayers.”

[Jeb Bush cancels events in Charleston due to church shooting]

After the shooting, helicopters swarmed overhead and heavily armed police wearing bullet-proof vests moved out across the city to search for the suspect.

“This was a very chaotic scene when we arrived,” Mullen said. “We were tracking this individual with canines. We were making sure that he was not in the area to commit other crimes. As all this was going on, we received information that there might be a secondary explosive device in the scene.”

Taxi driver Sheila Seagers, 60, heard the news on the radio and parked her Lincoln Town Car blocks from the scene. She stayed for hours, lingering and chatting quietly with friends. She called her state of mind a “ball of confusion.”

“I keep thinking of that big, beautiful church,” she said.

“We don’t want trouble but we keeping getting trouble,” she added. “I hate to say it, but what’s next? I pray that when morning comes there will be peace.”

Crisis chaplains rushed to the scene as people started creating prayers circles to pray for the victims and their families.

“I had to come, couldn’t sit home and watch my community on television,” said 59-year-old Ken Battle, a retired member of the U.S. Air Force. “But I can’t make up my mind about what has happened here. Being here helps me make meaning out of it.”

Johnny Brooks, 54, a retired electric worker, came with his wife. “Our backyard! Our city,” he said. “I am at a loss for words.”

Mullen said authorities are investigating the incident as a hate crime. Local law enforcement has joined forces with the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to track down leads. Mullen said police will soon announce a reward for information leading to the suspect’s capture.

“We will continue to do that until we find this individual who has carried out this crime tonight and bring him to justice,” he said.

“This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience,” Mullen said. “It is senseless. It is unfathomable that somebody in today’s society would walk into a church when people are having a prayer meeting and take their lives.”

A prayer vigil will be held at noon at Morris Brown AME church in Charleston.

Charleston church shooting suspect Dylann Roof arrested in Shelby, NC

The suspect accused of fatally shooting nine people at Emanuel AME Church Wednesday night has been arrested.

Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen announced 21-year-old Dylann Roof was taken into custody just after 11 a.m. following a traffic stop in Shelby, North Carolina. The 21-year-old from Lexington, South Carolina was wanted for the murder of nine people at Emanuel AME Church.

Authorities identified Roof as the shooting suspect Thursday morning. He was described as a white male, 21 years old, slender/small build, gray sweat shirt, blue jeans and clean shaven, and believed to be driving a dark in color Hyundai Elantra with vehicle tag LGF330.

Public records show Roof was most recently arrested in March in Lexington County on drug charges.

According to police, nine people were killed after shots were fired during a prayer meeting inside Emanuel AME Church on Calhoun Street around 9:05 p.m. Chief Mullen said officers arrived to find eight people dead inside the church. A ninth victim died later at a nearby hospital.

Three people survived the attack, Mullen said.

Elder James Johnson, President of the Charleston Chapter of the National Action News, said SC Senator Clementa C. Pinckney was one of the nine shot and killed inside the church. Pinckney, 41, served as pastor for Emanuel AME in addition to his role as a state senator for District 45. 

Mullen said Roof sat through an hour-long bible study before he began shooting church members. He then fled the scene.

Charleston Police released surveillance photos of the suspect during a 6 a.m. news conference. He was later identified by authorities shortly after 10 a.m.

Mullen said the shooting occurred during a prayer meeting at the church. Authorities have not yet released the identities of the nine victims, but did say three males and six females were killed.

WATCH: Live 5 News continuing coverage

The shooting is being investigated as a hate crime, Mullen said.

"This is clearly a tragedy in the City of Charleston," Mullen said."We are all praying and our hearts go out to the victims and their families as well as this entire community...When officers arrived they found a number of victims inside and we had also individuals who were transported to the MUSC emergency trauma center. As the investigation continued we were able to determine that there were eight deceased individuals inside of the church."

According to Mullen, one victim was transported to MUSC where they later died.

"We have investigators that are out tracking, leads are coming in and we will continue to do that until we find this individual who carried out this crime tonight and bring him to justice," Mullen said. "This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience. It is senseless, it is unfathomable that somebody in today's society would walk into a church when people are having a prayer meeting and take their lives."

"This is a most unspeakable and heartbreaking tragedy," said Mayor Joe Riley. "People in prayer on Wednesday evening. A ritual of coming together, praying and worshiping God, and to have an awful person come in and shoot them is inexplicable. Obviously, the most intolerable and unbelievable act possible."

SLIDESHOW: Shooting reported at downtown Charleston church

"The only reason someone could walk into a church and shoot people praying is out of hate, the only reason," Riley said. "It is the most dastardly act that one can possibly imagine, and we will bring that person to justice as soon as possible."

Mullen and Riley will hold a second media briefing at 7 a.m. at the Charleston Maritime Center, located at 10 Wharfside Dr.

A helicopter assisted law enforcement on the scene. Witnesses reported a big police presence was seen at the Emanuel AME Church on Calhoun Street. The FBI and the Chaplain service are also on the scene.

"We have all the resources that are available to us, not only locally but from the state as well as federal agencies," Mullen said. "We have resources that are being flown in right now from Washington, D.C. that will help us not only track leads but also work this investigation. And I can say that we will put all effort, we will put all resources and all of our energy in finding the individual who committed this crime tonight."

"The message to the community is that this is an opportunity for us all to unite because of a significant tragedy that has occurred," Mullen said.

Mullen said he can understand the anger and upset throughout the community, but he urged calm and unity to pray for the families and help police track down the person responsible.

"And what we need is for the community to look at this and say, 'We have had enough of this violence, and if we stand up together, we can stop this violence.' And that's what we need the community to do," he said.

Cornell William Brooks, president and CEO of the NAACP, released a statement echoing those sentiments.

Brooks said while he is outraged over the hate crime, the NAACP is sending their prayers and condolences to the victims and their families.

Calhoun Street between Meeting Street and Anson Street, as well as Anson Street between Calhoun Street and George Street remain closed while police continue to investigate.

Anyone with information about the shooting can call the Charleston Police tip line at (843) 529-3750.

Man cleared following arrest on scene; Bomb threat called in

A man matching the suspect's description who was initially arrested at the scene has been released.

The man, identified as local photographer Austin Rich, says he was released after being questioned by police officers.

Around 11:30 p.m., police began pushing media and bystanders across Meeting Street after officers say a bomb threat was reported in the area of the crime scene. Officials announced Thursday at 12:45 a.m. the bomb threat had been called off.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio plans to send officers and volunteer posse members to 60 churches with African-American congregations Sunday in response to a shooting at a historic black church in South Carolina where nine people were killed.

The sheriff said Thursday that he agreed to provide protection at the churches at the request of the Rev. Jarrett Maupin, who explained that he's concerned about white supremacists trampling on the civil rights of black people within the county.

Arpaio's plan comes as the sheriff is facing the toughest legal battles in his 22-year tenure. The sheriff's office remains under the supervision of a federal judge who concluded two years ago that the agency had systemically racially profiled Latinos in its regular traffic and immigration patrols.

He's also scheduled to go to trial in August in a separate lawsuit that accuses his office of punishing Latino jail inmates with limited English skills for speaking Spanish and discriminating against Latinos in business raids aimed at cracking down on identity theft.

Arpaio, who vigorously denies the civil rights allegations in both cases, said providing protection at the churches is part of his duties as the county's top law enforcer.

"This is very important to me, and I'm going to do it," Arpaio said. "I am the elected sheriff of this county."

Maupin said he wasn't aware of any specific threats against churches within the county, but he added that places of worship with black congregations often get hate mail. Still, Maupin said he's concerned that the South Carolina shooting might prompt white supremacists to come forward to harm black people.

More than two years ago, Arpaio sent hundreds of posse volunteers to provide security just outside school grounds in the wake of a shooting that left 26 people dead at a Connecticut elementary school.

Maupin said the controversy over Arpaio's now-shuttered immigration enforcement crackdowns is irrelevant to the issue of protecting the churches from white supremacists.

"Love us or hate us, we are here to make sure people can worship freely and safely," Maupin said.

SC governor calls for Confederate flag to come down

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina's governor declared Monday that the Confederate flag should be removed from the Statehouse grounds, reflecting what she described as a new consensus that the slaying of nine black churchgoers has changed what the banner stands for.

Gov. Nikki Haley's about-face comes just days after authorities charged Dylann Storm Roof, 21, with murder. The white man appeared in photos waving holding Confederate flags and burning or desecrating U.S. flags, and purportedly wrote of fomenting racial violence. Survivors told police he hurled racial insults during the attack.

"The murderer now locked up in Charleston said he hoped his actions would start a race war. We have an opportunity to show that not only was he wrong, but that just the opposite is happening," she said, flanked by Democrats and Republicans, blacks and whites who joined her call.

"My hope is that by removing a symbol that divides us, we can move our state forward in harmony, and we can honor the nine blessed souls who are now in Heaven," Haley said.

The massacre inside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church has suddenly made removing the flag — long thought politically impossible in South Carolina — the go-to position, even for politicians who have counted on the votes of disaffected white people in Republican primaries. Moments after Haley's announcement, her call was echoed by the Republican Party chairman and the top GOP lawmaker, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Haley urged the state's GOP-led House and Senate to debate the issue no later than this summer. If not, she said she will call a special session and force them to resolve it. "I will use that authority for the purpose of the legislature removing the flag from the statehouse grounds," she said.

Supreme Court upholds broad discrimination claims under housing law
6/25/15

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A divided U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday embraced a broad interpretation of the type of civil rights allegations that can be made under the landmark Fair Housing Act by ruling that the law allows for discrimination claims based on seemingly neutral practices that may have a discriminatory effect.

On a 5-4 vote in a major civil rights case, the court handed a victory to civil rights groups and the administration of President Barack Obama, which had backed a Texas nonprofit that claimed the state violated the law by disproportionately awarding low-income housing tax credits to developers who own properties in poor, minority-dominated neighborhoods.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative who often casts the deciding vote in close cases, joined the court's four liberals in the majority.

    The court was considering whether the 1968 law allows for so-called disparate impact claims in which plaintiffs only need to show the discriminatory effect of a particular practice and not evidence of discriminatory intent. There is no dispute over the law's prohibition on openly discriminatory acts in the sale and rental of housing.

    The case was closely watched by lenders and insurance companies, which say they are unfairly targeted. Industry groups say that companies use neutral criteria when assessing risk. The existing law allows challenges to legitimate business practices, they argue.

    National civil rights groups had tried to keep the issue away from the conservative-leaning high court. In the past three years, two other cases that raised the same question about the scope of fair-housing law were taken up by the high court but settled with the help of the rights groups before the justices could rule.

    For decades, disparate impact claims have been a way for lawyers representing blacks and other minorities to target policies that do not directly discriminate yet have the effect of putting certain groups at a disadvantage.

    The disparate impact theory is opposed by business interests because it allows for a broad range of business decisions related to housing to be subject to civil rights litigation.

    The case concerned whether Texas violated the Fair Housing Act by disproportionately awarding low-income housing tax credits to developers who own properties in poor, minority-dominated neighborhoods.

    Inclusive Communities Project Inc, a nonprofit that works to place low-income tenants in the more wealthy, majority white suburbs of Dallas, sued the state of Texas.

    The group’s lawyers said the state broke the law through its process for allocating the credits made available under the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program. The program gives credits to developers who provide housing for people with low incomes.

    Under Chief Justice John Roberts’ leadership, a five-justice conservative majority previously had curtailed remedies for race discrimination over a series of actions.

    In a 2007 case, the majority rejected integration plans designed to balance out whites and blacks throughout a school district and offset segregated housing. "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race," Roberts wrote.

    Two years later, the same five-justice conservative majority sided with a group of white firefighters from New Haven, Connecticut who challenged the city's decision to throw out the results of tests to be used for promotions because minorities scored poorly. The decision narrowed the chances for minorities to challenge practices that disproportionately affect them.

    In 2013, the court curtailed the scope of federal voting rights law by striking down the formula for a provision that targeted mostly southern states with a history of discrimination.

    The case is Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 13-1371.

MSNBC's Joy Reid Doesn't Believe Nikki Haley's Explanation For Church Fire
Dumbest. Reason. Ever.




On MSNBC Wednesday, Joy Reid cast doubt on Gov. Nikki Haley's lightning explanation for the South Carolina church fire because no other buildings were similarly burned down by lightning that night.

Mount Zion AME, one of several that have been set on fire, is an historically black church. Earlier today, Gov. Haley said that the fire was the result of four lightning strikes, and that there was no hate crime investigation.

Reid, however, seems to doubt the idea that lightning might strike one building while not striking other buildings.

    "This area is surrounded by pine trees, as is the church, which locals are saying are known to attract lightning. However this structure is on its own, it's about a mile from any other of the nearest structure, and there were no other fires that night that were caused by lightning strikes, no other 911 calls. So still a lot of mystery despite the definitiveness of the Governor's statement."

It is possible that Gov. Haley is wrong. It is possible the cause of the fire was misreported. But what is absolutely certain is that the reason won't be because no other buildings were struck by lightning. There is a reason that being struck by lightning is a metaphor for something that is incredibly rare or infrequent. When people talk about the lottery, they often compare your odds to the odds of being struck by lightning.

For example, here is a different church that caught fire in New York after being struck by lightning. All by its lonesome. Here is another building, from South Carolina in fact, where no other buildings caught fire. Here is another solitary building fire caused by lightning. And another. You get the idea.

But that is MSNBC and Joy Reid for you. Never let a crisis go to waste. By the way, Joy? The FBI agrees with Gov. Haley. Just saying.

Exit question: Does lightning strike hot enough to melt steel? Think about it.

Thought I would share this here...

In my small YT fellowship group(where C40 is also a member of) - there's this one black guy who posted on his G+ channel exposing the gap theory heresy. Then one guy came in and tried to call him a baby that's in too much milk - then the more the black guy stood firm, the more this other guy that tried to belittle get frustrated. And the next thing we knew this other guy called him a Hattite(I don't know if I spelled this right, but in the bible this group of people are black).

Pt I'm trying to make here is that it seems like we're seeing a spirit of racism infiltrating the body of Christ now. Come to think of it, there's also another black guy in our fellowship group that did a video, and a Steven Anderson supporter that didn't agree with him called him a n*****(or some other damning race name).

HORROR! Black Youths Mock and Laugh at Unconscious and Bloody Victim After July 4th Beatdown (VIDEO)

A video posted Sunday to the Facebook account of “QbabyOfTeamQ” purports to show the bloodied victim of a racial attack in Cincinnati during a race riot in Fountain Square on Saturday night.

The white man was beaten unconscious following a hip hop and electronica Fourth of July concert.

The video shows a mostly Black crowd gathered around the white male victim laid out on the sidewalk. A few are trying to help the unconscious man while others squeal in awe at the blood covering his head.
Many onlookers are laughing.
(Warning on Language-Violence)

VID AT SITE

One voice can be heard asking for someone to call 911.

A report by a police officer posted online said that police had to rescue the man from an attacking mob of about forty Black people.

Two officers were injured during the riot by people who were throwing fireworks, rocks, bottles and punches at the officers. Seven people were arrested including three juveniles.

Cincinnati is scheduled to host Major League Baseball’s All Star Game next week.

UPDATE: Cincinnati police are still investigating if this was a hate crime. really?

BlackLivesMatter Goes to the White House
Obama rolls out the red carpet for a racist, pro-cop-killing movement.


 The Obama White House rolled out the red carpet this week for leaders of the racist revolutionary Black Lives Matter movement, providing yet more confirmation that the Obama administration supports its members' increasingly violent activism.

News of the meeting comes after a Southern police chief was given the boot for posting a note critical of Black Lives Matter and of President Obama's incessant race-baiting.

Black Lives Matter is animated not only by anti-white racism but by a hatred of normal American values, including law and order. Its members denounce the U.S. for imagined institutional racism and discrimination against African-Americans. Members idolize convicted, unrepentant cop-killers Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu Jamal, both of whom are black, and have declared "war" on law enforcement. Its members openly call for police officers to be assassinated.

Black Lives Matter activist Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, a 25-year-old black man, murdered 31-year-old white Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder last Sunday night. Johnson-Shanks apparently committed suicide-by-cop when troopers caught up with him the next morning. The convicted felon pointed a gun at police and they shot him in self-defense.

The White House love fest Wednesday came after several high-profile attacks on law enforcement across America.

Activists enjoyed an audience with President Obama. Brittany Packnett, a highly influential Black Lives Matter leader, told reporters that Obama personally supports the movement that has inspired violence against police officers and spurred civil unrest.

“He offered us a lot of encouragement with his background as a community organizer, and told us that even incremental changes were progress,” she told reporters following the event. “He didn’t want us to get discouraged. He said, ‘Keep speaking truth to power.’”

President Obama’s senior adviser from Chicagoland, Valerie Jarrett, also met with the activists during the visit.

Jarrett met with Black Lives Matter leaders Packnett, Johnetta Elzie, DeRay Mckesson, Phillip Agnew, and Jamye Wooten. Mckesson has obliquely endorsed the use of violence to effect political change.

Packnett took to Twitter to pose a selfie photo with Jarrett with this text: "honest and action oriented. thank you [for] continuing to engage w[ith] the movement, Valerie."

In reply, Jarrett tweeted, “Great meeting, Brittany. Truly appreciate your leadership!!”

According to Breitbart News:

    Packnett has six recorded entries of visiting the complex long before the protests in Ferguson. She also was among the select group of Ferguson activists that met with Obama in December 2014. “I could tell he is taking this very personally,” Packnett explained after the 45 minute meeting with the president in the Oval Office. “He wants to see some clear, thoughtful action come from this.”

Jarrett, like Obama, has a long history of consorting with black militants and leftist radicals like former green jobs czar Van Jones who was forced out of his job after it was shown he had signed a 9/11 truther petition accusing the Bush administration or orchestrating terrorist attacks.

At this late stage in Obama's presidency the administration doesn't mind revealing its ties to radicals and unsavory individuals. The president doesn't care if the American people see how profoundly anti-American he really is.

White House attendee Phillip Agnew is executive director of a group called Dream Defenders. Kentucky cop killer Johnson-Shanks put a video on his Facebook page that features an appearance Agnew made on PBS last year. (Agnew also visited the White House this past December for a meeting with President Obama.)

"I'm mad at a system every day that stakes its claim on saying that there's a certain segment of society that is a criminal element," Agnew says in the video, spewing the stuff of paranoid leftist fantasy.

The Dream Defenders website describes the group as "an uprising of communities in struggle, shifting culture through transformational organizing." Its mission statement calls for "the destruction of the political and economic systems of Capitalism and Imperialism as well as Patriarchy," and for "an immediate end to the police state and murder of Black people, other people of color, and other oppressed peoples in the United States, the immediate release of the 2.5 million prisoners of the United States' War on the Poor, and trials by juries of our peers."

Meanwhile, newly unemployed Police Chief Mike Halstead of Surf City, North Carolina says he was forced out of his position for (accurately) speaking truth to power regarding the Black Lives Matter movement.

This constructive dismissal came after he wrote a Facebook post in which he called the movement a “terrorist group” and argued that President Obama has created a race problem in America.

“He put that information out, that was intended for his friends and colleagues and peers, but it was a public statement and there are people that were offended,” Surf City Town Manager Larry Bergman told the media.

How Ahmed’s clock became a false, convenient tale of racism

When is America going to get serious about the problem of white kids getting suspended from school for nothing?

By now you’ve heard the story of Ahmed Mohamed, crowned by the Daily Beast “The Muslim Hero America Has Been Waiting For” after the 14-year-old brought to school a beeping, strange-looking homemade concealed device that turned out to be a clock.

School officials, thinking, as 95% of Americans would, that it kinda looked like a bomb, hauled him out of class. Police put him in handcuffs and, even after the confusion passed, the boy was suspended from school.

That earned Mohamed a planned trip to the White House, a message of support from Hillary Clinton, an offer to stop by Facebook to meet Mark Zuckerberg and an invitation to be an intern at Twitter.

The police overreacted. Yet the device did look like something Ethan Hunt would lob out of a helicopter at the last minute in “Mission: Impossible.” As National Review’s Charles Cooke pointed out on Twitter, the scary-looking tangle of wires “looks a lot more like a bomb than a pop tart looks like a gun.”

Josh Welch, a white Maryland kid with ADHD who was 7 years old when he was kicked out of school for chewing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a pistol and pretending to shoot other students with it, must be puzzled.

Where’s his White House invitation? Where’s his chance to start networking at Facebook? His parents were forced to hire a lawyer and spent a year and a half just trying to get the suspension erased from the kid’s record. They were repeatedly refused.

“I stand with Ahmed, too. But I also stand with Alex Stone,” noted Reason writer Robby Soave. Alex Stone, a 16-year-old white kid from Summerville, SC, wrote a short story in which he imagined using a gun to kill a dinosaur. For this his locker was searched and he was arrested, handcuffed, charged with “disorderly conduct” and suspended from school for three days.

Obviously the White House and Mark Zuckerberg couldn’t be bothered to comment, but you’d think that, at the very least, Stephen King would have sent out a tweet expressing outrage that imagination was being punished.

Nada.

In Dyer County, Tenn., Kendra Turner says she was suspended for saying, “Bless you” after a student sneezed, and that her teacher told her that there she would have no “godly speaking in class.”
Modal Trigger
The homemade clock that Ahmed Mohamed brought to schoolPhoto: AP

A school administrator said, “This was not a religious issue at all, but more of an issue the teacher felt was a distraction in her class.” Uh-huh. School leadership offered no explanation for the photos posted by students that showed “bless you” on a list of expressions banned in the classroom. Turner is still waiting for her call from President Obama.

Are white kids being punished en masse for dopey quasi-infractions because of their race? Of course not. That’s ridiculous.

But it’s equally absurd to suggest that you have to be Muslim, or brown-skinned, or live in Texas, to be subjected to overenthusiastic use of school discipline and police force.

“It never would have happened to a white kid”? It happens to white kids all. The. Time.

The main difference between the Ahmed Mohamed case and the others is that the mainstream media and the leftist point of view it presents just can’t let go of Ahmed. Ahmed is too useful to their narrative to be a one-day story.

That Bristol Palin said on Facebook that President Obama didn’t need to get involved in the situation proved irresistible for the media, which loves to depict America as a bitter standoff between red-state hicks on the one hand and sophisticated members of the cool bicoastal techno-media club on the other.

Let’s just savor for a moment that the musings of the daughter of an unemployed former governor constitute national news. This year the brother of a sitting president made derogatory comments about the leader of the free world and the reaction from the media was crickets.

Malik Obama gets the courtesy of being ignored because he has also said some crazy things. Now imagine Bristol Palin making loony statements. Would the media decline to cover them?

For 14 years and two weeks now, the left has been desperate to find some evidence, any evidence, that Muslims in general are facing deep-seated discrimination because a few Muslims attacked us on 9/11.

That American Muslims have instead mostly been treated with respect and courtesy ought to be a point of pride, but at no point will the left ever say, “Isn’t it great that we’re such a pluralistic and tolerant country?”

The left-led push to turn a man who was, as of 2004, an obscure state senator with no particular accomplishments, into the president four years later, was centrally and crucially about race. Everyone else was being subjected to a bait-and-switch.

Instead of being credited with enlightenment for being the only white-majority country ever to elect a black leader, now we’re told that everything is about racism.

3 people hurt in Alabama church shooting; suspect arrested

An Alabama prosecutor says a suspect has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting a woman, an infant and a pastor inside a church in Alabama.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson says James Minter was arrested after the shooting Sunday at the Oasis Church in East Selma, Alabama. Neither Minter’s age or hometown were immediately available.

Jackson says the shooting stems from a domestic issue between Minter and the woman and that race was not a factor.

Jackson says the pastor is white, while Minter and the two other victims are black. Jackson says Minter is being held without bond at the Dallas County jail.

CNN Turns Mixed Race Oregon Shooter into a White Man
LA Times claims Mercer was a white supremacist


(http://hw.infowars.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/mercer.jpg)

According to The Gateway Pundit and Conservative Treehouse, CNN altered a photo of Chris Harper-Mercer, the Oregon shooter, to make him look white.

“On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media,” the Conservative Treehouse reports. “On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him.  Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast?”

CNN also did not show photos of Mercer’s mother, who is black.

The reason CNN altered the photo is obvious: the race of Mercer does not fit the narrative that only white males — and thus white supremacist — can be mass shooters.

A black male shooter is incompatible with the racist Black Lives Matters class warfare agenda pushed by the liberal establishment and its propaganda media.

On Friday, a CNN correspondent, Pamela Brown, cited writings allegedly penned by Mercer where he “rambled about his hatred toward black men,” thus portraying him as a racist or possibly a white supremacist.

The Los Angeles Times also portrayed Mercer as a white supremacist:

    A federal law enforcement source familiar with the investigation said, though, that authorities had obtained some of Harper-Mercer’s writings, as well as a note he left behind, suggesting that he supported white-supremacist causes and opposed organized religion.

St. Louis police step up patrols after spate of church fires
10/21/15
http://news.yahoo.com/st-louis-police-step-patrols-spate-church-fires-130842587.html

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police are stepping up patrols and trying to develop profiles of possible suspects in a spate of fires that have damaged six churches in largely black neighborhoods during the past two weeks, the city's police chief said.

Sam Dotson also told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1LEaWZi ) Tuesday that the churches damaged during the suspicious fires Oct. 8 through Oct. 18 vary denominationally and are within a few miles of each other.

Four are on St. Louis' north side, and two are in nearby Jennings.

Dotson's comments came the same day the reward for information leading to an arrest doubled to $4,000.

Five of the churches are predominantly black, and one is racially mixed. In each case, the front doors were set on fire, leaving damage that ranged from virtually nothing at one church to the near destruction of another.

St. Louis and federal authorities, including the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, are investigating, trying to determine whether the arsonist or suspects are targeting religion, race or both. St. Louis Fire Capt. Garon Mosby has said the possibility that the fires could be hate crimes — for religious or racial reasons — "is part of the dynamic" of the investigation.

The area is still reeling from the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown last year by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson and a grand jury's subsequent decision not to charge Wilson. Brown, who was black, was unarmed when he was shot by Wilson, who is white, in a case that spawned the national "Black Lives Matter" movement scrutinizing police treatment of minorities.

REAL RACISM

College Dean Accuses Texas Officers of Stopping Her for ‘Walking While Black’ — Police Claim Dashcam Video Tells a Different Story

Dorothy Bland, dean of the journalism school at the University of North Texas, is used to taking a walk at daybreak. But rain delayed her exercise regimen until later Saturday morning when she began traversing the streets of her well-to-do Corinth neighborhood.

But soon “flashing lights and sirens from a police vehicle” paused her walk, she wrote in a column for the Dallas Morning News.

Bland was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, and she’s black.

“Like most African-Americans, I am familiar with the phrase ‘driving while black,’ but was I really being stopped for walking on the street in my own neighborhood?” she asked.

“Yes,” she answered. “In the words of Sal Ruibal, ‘Walking while black is a crime in many jurisdictions. May God have mercy on our nation.’”

Bland said she asked the officers if there was a problem but didn’t “remember getting a decent answer before one of the officers asked me where I lived and for identification.”

More from Bland:

I remember saying something like, “Around the corner. This is my neighborhood, and I’m a taxpayer who pays a lot of taxes.” As for the I.D. question, how many Americans typically carry I.D. with them on their morning walk? Do you realize I bought the hoodie I was wearing after completing the Harvard University Institute for Management and Leadership in Education in 2014? Do you realize I have hosted gatherings for family, friends, faculty, staff and students in my home? Not once was a police officer called. To those officers, my education or property-owner status didn’t matter. One officer captured my address and date of birth.

Bland figured she “was simply a brown face in an affluent neighborhood. I told the police I didn’t like to walk in the rain, and one of them told me, ‘My dog doesn’t like to walk in the rain.’ Ouch!”

She added that “for safety’s sake” she used her iPhone to take a photo of the officers and their patrol car’s license plate, as Bland didn’t want to end up like “the dozens of others who have died while in police custody.” Within hours after posting about the incident on Facebook, Bland said more than 100 friends spread the news across the country.

“You are now in the company of Henry Louis Gates and others with the same experience,” she said one of her former students wrote her. “We must stop racial profiling.”

Bland added that she stopped by the mayor’s house and asked him, “Do I look like a criminal?” She continued, “Mayor Bill Heidemann said no and shook his head in disbelief. I appreciate the mayor being a good neighbor, but why should he need to verify that I am not a menace to society?”

But after Corinth Police Chief Debra Walthall caught wind of the incident, she wrote a response, which was in the second part of the Dallas Morning News piece, and said that the encounter was about Bland’s safety, not race — and that dashcam video from the officer’s patrol car proves it.

Walthall said the officers saw Bland walking in the street with earbuds and “unaware that there was a pickup truck directly behind her that had to almost come to a complete stop to avoid hitting her.”

“The driver of the truck looked at the officers as they passed and held his hands in the air, which implied ‘aren’t you going to do something about this?’” the chief wrote. “The officers turned around and drove behind Ms. Bland.”

Walthall noted that while the patrol car’s emergency lights were activated, no sirens were used, contrary to Bland’s claim — and the officers “immediately” told Bland about their concern for her safety and the pickup truck and that she should walk against traffic instead.

“Ms. Bland had been observed earlier by these same officers, but she was not in the street and impeding traffic, so she was not contacted,” Walthall wrote.

“Impeding traffic is a Class C misdemeanor, and it is our policy to ask for identification from people we encounter for this type violation,” the chief added. “I am surprised by her comments as this was not a confrontational encounter but a display of professionalism and genuine concern for her safety.”

Walthall noted that Bland never contacted police or returned the chief’s phone message about the incident.

“The citizens of Corinth as a whole are a highly educated population,” Walthall concluded, “and it is disappointing that one of our residents would attempt to make this a racial issue when clearly it is not.”

Wonder why this isnt all OVER the media? Where is the outcry for this? See if you can figure it out?

Attorney: Police Body Cam Shows Father of Fatally Shot 6-Year-Old With His Hands Up, No Threat to Cops

Police body camera video shows the father of a 6-year-old autistic boy had his hands up and posed no threat as police opened fire into his car, severely wounding the motorist and killing his son, the man’s lawyer said Monday.

“This was not a threatening situation for the police,” said Mark Jeansonne (ZHAN’-sawn), the attorney for Chris Few, who remained hospitalized Monday and could not attend the funeral of his son, Jeremy Mardis.

Jeansonne spoke with The Associated Press after a closed hearing in a Louisiana jail where he said the two local marshals were ordered held on $1 million bond each. Derrick Stafford, 32, of Mansura, and Norris Greenhouse Jr., 23, of Marksville, are both charged with second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.

The lawyer said he still hasn’t seen the video, but its contents were described to the judge during the hearing.

He also said that while Few’s condition is improving, he has not yet been told that his son died at the scene.

State police declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

Also Monday, District Attorney Charles A. Riddle recused himself from the case because one of his top assistant prosecutors is the father of Greenhouse. The case is “not good for any of us,” Riddle said.

The state attorney general’s office will take over the prosecution.

Louisiana State Police announced late Friday that they had arrested the two marshals in the case, which raised questions from the start. Initial reports suggested the marshals had been serving a warrant on Few, but Louisiana’s state police chief, Col. Mike Edmonson, said there was no evidence of a warrant, nor was there a gun found at the scene.

Investigators have been reviewing forensics evidence, 911 calls and body camera recordings, which Edmonson described at a news conference Friday. State police said the boy died wearing his seatbelt in the front passenger seat.

“It’s the most disturbing thing I’ve seen – and I will leave it at that,” Edmonson said. “Jeremy Mardis is 6 years old. He didn’t deserve to die like that.”

Stafford is a full-time lieutenant with the Marksville Police Department; Greenhouse is a full-time city marshal. Both were working part time as deputy marshals in Marksville on Tuesday when they allegedly opened fire.

Mardis was to be buried Monday in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He had recently moved from Hattiesburg to Louisiana.

Democrats Are How Old?
Party of young people led by retirees


For a party that attracts a lot of young voters to the ballot box, the Democrats are led by what amounts to a group of retirees. Super RICH capitalist old WHITE people!!   :D

Washington-based political paper The Hill points out that the top two contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination are both past retirement age, with Hillary Clinton having recently turned 68 and Bernie Sanders clocking in at 74 years of age.

But it's not just the presidential contenders:

Democrats are led on Capitol Hill by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) — who are both 75.

Pelosi’s top two lieutenants are 76-year-old Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) and 75-year-old Rep. James Clyburn (S.C.). In comparison, Reid’s expected successor as Democratic leader in the next Congress is a relative spring chicken: Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.) is 64.

By contrast, the 54-year-old President Obama seems almost as young as the millennial generation whose votes the ancient Hillary and Bernie hope to capture.

Columbia Student Activists Pressuring Their Peers to Protest
A campaign of intimidation.


Time to let these people go

Columbia student activists are pressuring fellow students to participate in their campus protests or risk being ostracized, reports the New York Post.

Organizers posted flyers and sent Facebook messages urging undergraduates to wear black clothing and join two demonstrations last Thursday to support minorities who are “marginalized and threatened.”

One parent of a Columbia student said,

“There’s been a campaign of intimidation, where students are going dorm to dorm, floor to floor and asking students to go back to their dorms and put on black if they’re not wearing black. My daughter told me people are uneasy and fearful. Her personal politics are left-wing and she shares their sympathies, but she doesn’t like to feel that she can’t wear blue if she wants to wear blue.”

One unidentified senior added,

“We support them, but we’re here to learn. There’s a divide among students. People who are not willing to walk out are seen as not supporting the movement.”

One freshman said, “Some students were asking if I knew about the protest and why I wasn’t there. It was just my choice. I’m not really the protest type.”

Hundreds of Columbia students gathered at the South Lawn Thursday in solidarity with protesters at the University of Missouri and Yale who complained recently about racism . Some speakers heckled bystanders who were not participating. “Look at those guys playing Frisbee — that is the definition of privilege,” said one speaker. Those students stopped playing Frisbee and left the area.

Another student wearing a T-shirt with the words “Kill White Supremacy” called Columbia a “white supremacist institution.” She led the crowd in a progression of chants including “I love black people,” “I love all black people” and “I love queer black people,” before adding “I love black criminals” and “I love black people who steal.”

“Raise your hand if you’re a little bit uncomfortable,” she said, according to the New York Post. “It’s okay if you’re uncomfortable right now. This university was built on stolen land on the backs of my ancestors — and that is uncomfortable.”

So protest with us - or else.

‘This Is Not a Day Care’: Read College President’s Scathing Open Letter to ‘Self-Absorbed and Narcissistic’ Students

In the face of college students far and wide complaining about emotional “triggers” they see and hear, annexing “safe spaces” where opposing views can’t hurt their feelings and even threatening free speech, Everett Piper is seemingly fed up with it all.

The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University began his recent open letter to students with a story it appears he could hardly believe himself.

“This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt ‘victimized’ by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13,” Piper explained in his letter posted to the school’s website. “It appears that this young scholar felt offended because a homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love! In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable.”

And with that, Piper apparently had enough.

“I’m not making this up,” he continued. “Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic! Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims! Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them ‘feel bad’ about themselves, is a ‘hater,’ a ‘bigot,’ an ‘oppressor,’ and a ‘victimizer.’”

Piper went on to explain to students that the familiar feeling of “discomfort” when confronted with wrongdoing is called a “conscience” — and that the “goal of many a good sermon is to get you to confess your sins—not coddle you in your selfishness” or help you achieve “self-actualization.”

More from Piper:

If you want the chaplain to tell you you’re a victim rather than tell you that you need virtue, this may not be the university you’re looking for. If you want to complain about a sermon that makes you feel less than loving for not showing love, this might be the wrong place.

If you’re more interested in playing the “hater” card than you are in confessing your own hate; if you want to arrogantly lecture, rather than humbly learn; if you don’t want to feel guilt in your soul when you are guilty of sin; if you want to be enabled rather than confronted, there are many universities across the land (in Missouri and elsewhere) that will give you exactly what you want, but Oklahoma Wesleyan isn’t one of them.

At OKWU, we teach you to be selfless rather than self-centered. We are more interested in you practicing personal forgiveness than political revenge. We want you to model interpersonal reconciliation rather than foment personal conflict. We believe the content of your character is more important than the color of your skin. We don’t believe that you have been victimized every time you feel guilty and we don’t issue “trigger warnings” before altar calls.

“This is not a day care,” Piper concluded. “This is a university!”

On his Facebook page, Glenn Beck praised Piper’s “very politically incorrect” letter. Here’s a brief clip of Piper speaking to Beck about a related topic on TheBlaze TV:

Suspect Behind Racist Threats at University Identified as... Black Activist
We're shocked, shocked.

Another day, another race hoax.

In mid-November, students gathered at Kean University in New Jersey to stand in solidarity with the "Black Lives Matter" protests happening at the University of Missouri. One of the participants was a Kean alum who graduated in May.

Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, a self-proclaimed black activist, stood next to other students during the rally but ducked out midway through, according to NJ.com. Police believe that the recent graduate then went to the university library and created an anonymous Twitter account, @keanuagainstblk, adding to its description that it is an account "against blacks" and "for everyone who hates blacks people." [sic] Apparently bored with attending an uneventful demonstration described as "peaceful," McKelvey ramped up the moment by sending her first "anonymous" tweet: a bomb threat to the campus.

She sent other messages as well, threatening to shoot black students:

i will kill every black male and female at kean university

Police say she returned to the rally and started spreading the word that she "discovered" threats against black students. It is stated at NJ.com that McKelvey sent messages from her personal Twitter account later that night with pictures from the rally along with screenshots of the threats.

McKelvey, a personal trainer who received her degree in Global Fitness and Wellness from Kean, is charged with third-degree creating a false public alarm and is scheduled to appear in court on December 14. While a student, McKelvey also stirred up trouble by organizing a demonstration in attempt to accuse the Student Organization and a psychology professor of racism. But in the end, there was no evidence to back up her claim.

Kean President Dawood Farahi released a statement online that condemned the alum's actions, while at the same time praised alumnus who have helped promote social justice:

[T]he individual who sent the abhorrent tweets two weeks ago has been identified and charged. 

We are saddened to learn that the person allegedly responsible was an active participant in the rally that took place on campus on Tuesday, November 17 and is a former student of Kean. As a diverse academic community, we wholeheartedly respect and support activism, however, no cause or issue gives anyone the right to threaten the safety of others. We hope this information will begin to bring a sense of relief and security to the campus community.

Kean remains a place of diversity, of openness to all. These horrible tweets tried to tear us apart and tarnish our reputation, but they have failed.

We are deeply grateful to faculty, students and staff who have worked hard over the years to make our campus one of the most racially diverse campuses in this country, and to our alumni whose support have made possible our ongoing efforts to promote social justice and human rights.

‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’ SUPPORTER WHO THREATENED TO MASSACRE 16 WHITE STUDENTS ALLOWED BACK ON CAMPUS
Jabari Dean promised to carry out racially-motivated rampage against "white devils"


A ‘Black Lives Matter’ supporter who threatened to massacre 16 white students as part of a revenge attack for the shooting of Chicago teen Laquan McDonald has been allowed to return to campus by a federal judge.

21-year-old Jabari Dean was arrested on Monday after threatening to kill students and staff at the University of Chicago.

Dean posted a message on social media over the Thanksgiving weekend in which he laid out the details of his plan to carry out the racially-motivated rampage.

“This is my only warning,” wrote Dean. “At 10 a.m. on Monday mourning (sic) I am going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with a M-4 Carbine and 2 Desert Eagles all fully loaded. I will execute aproximately (sic) 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time (sic) Mcdonald (sic) was killed.”

“I then will die killing any number of white policemen that I can in the process. This is not a joke. I am to do my part to rid the world of the white devils. I expect you to do the same,” the post stated.

The threat led the University of Chicago to take the decision to close the campus after consultation with the FBI.

Dean was released to his mother on Tuesday morning from U.S. Dirksen Federal Courthouse pending a charge of transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.

However, U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan Cox has “allowed him to attend class,” according to reports, a privilege that presumably would not have been granted to a white student who had threatened to massacre over a dozen black people.

Dean was given permission to return to campus under the justification that he had no weapons with which to carry out his planned attack. Bill Burton, a spokesman for UIC, declined to comment on whether the university would allow Dean to return or what disciplinary action he would face.

Despite being infinitely more threatening than the University of Missouri “poop swastika,” which prompted weeks of protest at colleges across the U.S. and lavish media attention, Dean’s threat to massacre 16 students as part of a ‘Black Lives Matter’ revenge attack has attracted comparatively little press coverage.

Another racist hoax that the media is ignoring.

Bridgeport Officer Who Reported Racist Letter Wrote It: Police

(http://media.nbcconnecticut.com/images/971*546/Clive+Higgins+letter+1200.jpg)

A former Bridgeport police officer who claimed someone left a racist memo on police letterhead in his mailbox at headquarters in February admitted to writing the letter himself and has been charged with filing a false report, according to police.

Former Officer Clive Higgins reported that he found a racist hate letter in his police mailbox the morning of Monday, Feb. 9 and feared for his life because of it.

The letter, printed on paper marked with the department's official letterhead, started off with "WHITE POWER" and went on to say "Officer Clive Higgins doesn't belong here in this Police Department" and "These Black Officers belong in the toilet."

A month earlier, Higgins was acquitted in connection with a 2011 police brutality case in which officers were caught on camera beating a suspect at Beardsley Park and shooting him with a stun gun. Two other officers were convicted, but a federal jury found Higgins not guilty.

"He's not getting his gun or his badge back. He didn't even support his fellow Officers in Court," the letter stated. "Where were you Higgins ?? You better watch your back.. We know where you live."

While Higgins said he feared for his life, surveillance showed him smiling and talking when he returned from the room, according to state police.

After investigators presented him with the photographs, Higgins began rubbing and shaking his head and admitted to typing the letter in the booking room himself and printing it out before calling the Bridgeport Guardians, according to paperwork filed in Superior Court.

When questioned during the investigation, officials from the Bridgeport Guardians said they had no idea who wrote the letter and that the person who did should be charged, according to police.

Higgins, who resigned from the department on July 6, has been charged with falsely reporting an incident. He was released on a written promise to appear and is due in court on Dec. 16. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Dashcam proves woman lied about cop aiming gun at her (VIDEO)

A woman who was apparently motivated by revenge accused a police officer of yelling and pulling a gun on her during a traffic stop in October, but dashcam video later revealed she'd lied about the entire incident, police said.

Hyacinth Peccoo, 50, of Irvington, was charged with making a false report to law enforcement after police reviewed the dashcam video of the traffic stop from Officer Daniel Caffrey's vehicle, Capt. Chris DePuyt said.

Peccoo, he said, went to police headquarters on Oct. 28 and made a complaint about Caffrey, who had pulled her over for failing to stop at a stop sign. Peccoo disputed the stop and claimed she had stopped at the sign, DePuyt said.

She also alleged that Caffrey yelled at her, pulled out his firearm and pointed it at her, he said. Peccoo told police she asked Caffrey whether he was going to kill her in broad daylight, DePuyt said.

Peccoo provided a written statement of her account to police and her interview with Detective Lt. Michael Fairweather, the Internal Affairs officer, was recorded, DePuyt said.

After her interview, Fairweather told Peccoo the traffic stop had been recorded by the patrol car's video system, DePuyt said. The video showed that her allegations had been fabricated and that Caffrey never yelled at her or removed his firearm from his holster, he said.

In fact, DePuyt said, the video showed he'd given Peccoo a break by not issuing her an $85 ticket for failure to stop at a stop sign as it carries two points. Instead, the officer gave her a $26 ticket for failure to change her address on her license, he said.

Peccoo has a scheduled court appearance on Dec. 14.

Students Demand Building Called ‘Lynch’ Be Renamed Because of Racial Overtones
Wonder when they will demand that Loretta Lynch change her name also?

Students at a small Pennsylvania college are demanding that administrators rename a building called “Lynch Memorial Hall'' because of the racial overtones of the word “lynch.''
The building is named after Clyde A. Lynch, who was president of Lebanon Valley College from 1932 until his death in 1950.

Students want school officials to either rename the building entirely or add Lynch's first name and middle initial, saying the word recalls the public executions of black men by white mobs in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

It was included on a list of demands that students presented to the school on Friday. Other demands include a more diverse curriculum, more sensitivity training for staff and regular surveys of the racial climate on campus.

School spokesman Marty Parkes said Tuesday that President Lewis Thayne is considering all of the demands and will address them at a forum next month.

Calling Lynch a “very important figure'' in the history of the college, Parkes said officials want to avoid “doing anything that would denigrate his memory or his legacy here.''

The school's website says Lynch led the college through the Great Depression and World War II and raised $550,000 for a new physical education building. The building that bears his name houses several academic departments.

The controversy over the name was first reported by Pennlive.com.

Lebanon Valley College has about 1,600 undergraduates. It's 90 miles west of Philadelphia.

BLACK LEADER: MEDIA COVER UP MASS SHOOTINGS – BY BLACKS
'Whereas when white people commit mass shootings, you hear about it all the time'


New Orleans experienced its biggest mass shooting since 2013 on Nov. 22 when several gunmen from two rival gangs allegedly opened fire on each other in a park filled with hundreds of people. The shooting wounded 17 people.

But the incident did not receive nearly as much attention from the national media as did the shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic later that week, in which three people were killed and nine wounded.

The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, a WND columnist and founder of the civil rights nonprofit BOND, said Americans don’t hear enough about mass shooting attacks committed by black men.

“There’s this idea in America that only white men commit mass shootings or mass murders,” Peterson said recently on his radio show. “Well, it’s not true. Black men are doing it, too.”

It is a white man, Robert Lewis Dear, who is suspected of shooting up the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood facility. On the other hand, a black man, Joseph “Moe” Allen, was the first suspect named and arrested for the shooting in New Orleans’ Bunny Friend Park.

Peterson, author of the new book,  “The Antidote,” believes there is a double standard when it comes to media coverage of black shooters versus white shooters.

“When black people commit crimes – you know about black-on-black crimes that are happening every day in Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Indiana, and around the country,” Peterson said. “When blacks are doing it, the media are not allowed to report it. They call it racist.”

Peterson, who is black, explained that the media used to report on mass black shootings, but then civil rights leaders began to accuse the media of racism. Now, he says, the media are afraid to report on black criminality for fear of being called racist.

“When white people commit mass shootings, you hear about it all the time because [the media] have not been called racist with white mass shootings,” Peterson clarified.


Colin Flaherty, who documented numerous examples of black mob violence in his book,  "White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It," said the New Orleans shooting was not a major story because incidents like that are not unusual.

"Black gun violence of this type is something that happens regularly all over the country," Flaherty told WND. "But reporters marginalize it by saying it was gang-related, or drug-related, or whatever; it does not really matter to them. As long as they can pigeonhole it, they feel that gives them license to ignore it or downplay it."

Flaherty agreed with Peterson that black activists and elected officials pressure editors to ignore or downplay black violence.

"Covering black crime and violence is somehow seen as contributing to the problem of black crime and violence – which is wildly out of proportion," Flaherty said. "Pittsburgh is just one example of many: black leaders met with editors and news directors and told them their coverage was contributing to poor self-image of black people, and thus causing the high unemployment and other problems we hear so much about. So in Pittsburgh, they agreed to do fewer stories, run fewer pictures, focus less on black crime."

The Society of Professional Journalists aids the cover-up, according to Flaherty, by telling their members to not report the race of people involved in violent crimes.

"The SPJ chapters all over the country give seminars on this," Flaherty said. "Their national magazine writes stories about this, all saying the same thing: Race has nothing to do with violent crime, so do not report it.

"This is weird because this same group with the same reporters are constantly writing about black colleges, black churches, black funeral homes, black police officer groups, ad infinitum. But black violence? Nothing."

Jack Cashill, a WND columnist and author of "Scarlet Letters: The Ever-Increasing Intolerance of the Cult of Liberalism Exposed," said the liberal media try to protect their audiences from realities that defy liberal orthodoxy.

"The media have sheltered their liberal audiences from the reality of crime, especially crime committed by politically protected groups – blacks, Muslims, illegal immigrants," Cashill told WND. "When confronted with that reality, liberals are often so shocked their first instinct is to ask what the victims did to deserve their fate, even if they themselves are the victims. They are that ignorant and that brainwashed."

Peterson challenged the idea that "black lives matter" when they are killed by fellow blacks. Based on the high frequency of killing and other violence in the black community, he noted, it appears many black people don't hold their fellow blacks' lives in high regard.

"Black lives don't matter to black people," Peterson asserted. "If they did, [black-on-black killings] would not be happening. They would do something about it. The neighbors would be complaining about it, police officers would be allowed to come into the community and clean up the mess, the president of the United States would do something about it. It doesn't matter. Not at all."

Cashill believes the media see things the same way black people do.

"The bottom line of major media crime reporting is this: Black lives matter only when a white person does the killing, even if justified," Cashill stated. "As a case in point, George Zimmerman was named after his uncle, Jorgé. If Zimmerman's parents called their son Jorgé, we never would have heard of George Zimmerman."

Deborah Allen, the mother of the suspected New Orleans shooter, insisted her son could not have been the killer because he was in Texas when the shooting took place. Her insistence came a day after "Moe" turned himself in to law enforcement and appeared in magistrate court.

Peterson said such denial from black mothers is common because they don't want to accept responsibility for the criminal behavior of the boys they raised.

"Black mothers are in denial because if they spoke the truth about what's wrong with their children, they would have to admit that they caused the problem, and they can't do that," Peterson asserted. "The pride, the ego would not allow that to happen. And even when they speak about it, they say the father did it, and the father's nowhere around.”

Flaherty also believes black mothers are a major part of the problem.

"Black mothers are the chief enablers of black crimes committed by their sons," he said. "And daughters. We see this especially when it involves an 'interaction' with police. But this is a fact: Black criminals are more popular in black neighborhoods than people who obey the law."

The younger Allen had an extensive criminal record. According to NOLA.com, he was booked for murder twice, in 2002 and 2008, but prosecutors refused the charges both times. In 2003, Allen received five years in prison for possessing heroin and ****, as well as illegally carrying a weapon. Seven years after that, he was again arrested for heroin and **** possession charges. In 2012, he was sentenced to eight years in prison, but the next year, a judge amended his sentence to make him eligible "for any and all rehabilitation, educational, and or work release programs," according to NOLA.com.

Deborah Allen blamed her son's criminal activity on the sudden deaths of his oldest brother and his father when "Moe" was nine years old. Indeed, in "The Antidote," Peterson writes that young black men often become violent because they grow up hating their mothers and longing for their absent fathers. Peterson insists that broken families, not racism, are the real cause of dysfunction in the black community.

"Black men and women do not feel loved, and so they've been told that the anger that they have is caused by white racism," Peterson said. "Not true. Racism doesn't exist; it's an illusion."

D.C. NPR Family Another Victim of Black Violence and Denial

If Lori Kaplan depended only on her employers at NPR for news, she was probably surprised at the black mob violence that almost killed her white husband.

Kaplan is the Senior Director of Audience Research at NPR in downtown Washington, D.C. That is where she regularly meets her husband at the end of his evening commute on the Metro Red Line.

That is what she was recently doing when she received a text message from him: An “idiot gang” was acting belligerently in his train car, so he was going to move.

That was the last she heard from him until he got off the train: bloody, beaten, and dazed. With a broken jaw and missing teeth.

The Washington Post writer who covers commuting -- not crime -- picked up the story:

one of the youths approached a man who appeared to be in his 30s and asked for his bag. The man remained calmly in his seat, she said, when one of the youths began throwing punches.

Smyth said the punching continued maybe “30 seconds or so” when the victim, who appeared dazed, started to walk away from the youth. That’s when “the second kid jumped in and punched him square in the jaw,” she said.

She said the man passed out and hit the floor of the train’s front car.

The reporter, a former NPR correspondent, either did not know or did not think it was important to include a description of the “idiot gang.”

Hundreds of readers of the story thought it was important -- and many mentioned their own experiences with black on white violence on the D.C. Metro.

The attackers of Kaplan’s husband were black -- as are virtually all of the violent predators on the Washington Metro. A fact the Post and NPR keep trying to ignore and wish away, even as they devote more and more space to Black Lives Matter and the omnipresence of white racism.

The reporter was upholding a longstanding tradition at the Post -- which at NPR is an ironclad rule -- not to report on the epidemic of black on white crime and black mob violence in Washington or anywhere else.

Or only to dismiss it as some kind of right wing talking point, if somehow race does sneak into the coverage.

At NPR they take this exclusion to the extreme: Virtually every story on race -- and there are many -- is told from the perspective of relentless black victimization at the hands of perpetual white racism.

As I sat down to write this article, the black mayor of Memphis is patiently explaining to the fawning correspondent how 400 years of racism and slavery are still “embedded,”

The NPR correspondent pretended this observation is new -- and not something heard on NPR every day, often dozens of times a day -- for the last 50 years.

Soon after, a white gay man said he identifies with “African Americans” because he is also a minority.

That host chose to ignore the longstanding antipathy -- and violence -- of many black people towards gay people -- which is present in popular culture and in crime stories today.

And by the way, if you are looking for some good children’s books about white on black racism, especially from police, NPR can recommend a boatload of those. And they do.

In between segments, NPR house ads featured the late Daniel Schorr proclaiming how the election of Barack Obama as the “first African American president” is a miracle -- because, as everyone understands, everyone who does not listen to NPR is racist and bigot.

And that is why they are supporting Donald Trump.

Another daily theme on NPR -- also explained patiently that day by the mayor of Memphis.

Unexplained was the enormous amount of crime and black on white violence in the Chocolate City of Memphis -- and lots of other places. Maybe next time. If you cannot wait, pick up a copy of Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry. There are lots of links and stories and videos documenting the black on white crime and hostility there. And the rest of the country too.

The Black Lives Matter mob and its spiritual godfathers have open and uncritical and constant access to the news portals at NPR. At “Fresh Air”, hostess Terry Gross was running out of ways to express her sympathy with black victimization and disgust with white racism during a recent interview with Ta-Nehisi Coates, whose book on black victimization was more than a favorite, it was an NPR fetish.

The other popular NPR shows – “This American Life”, “Radio Lab”, “All Things Considered”-- are not far behind. Every college professor and community organizer who wants to spread half-truths and lies about black victimization and white racism and the ever-popular ‘police who pick on black people for no reason whatsoever,’ know all they have to do is ask.

Long after “hands up, don’t shoot” was discredited as just another racial fairy tale,” NPR and its producers and guests stuck with it, with enthusiasm and naiveté.

If not outright deceit.

Come to think of it, that was outright deceit.

And when the President of the United States needed a place to deliver his Christmas message, i.e. remind people how he was a victim of racism too, darn it, where would he go but NPR? Nowhere.

Despite these and thousands of other racial references every year on NPR, there is never any pushback. Not one host or guest asking “really?”

Not one news reader mentioning, however timidly, the enormous gap between black and white crime rates. The enormous black on white hostility that is now mainstream.

The enormous number of victims of black on white crime and violence.

The Kaplan family is far from the first family to see their carefully constructed make-believe world of relentless black victimization burst apart with a shocking dose of violence and reality.

Last year, David Ruenzel was living a life of white privilege as an Oakland schoolteacher. He knew better than most what that term meant: He helped invent it as a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center.

While exercising his white privilege on a remote hiking trail in Oakland, several black people killed him.

Earlier this year, federal judge Susan Dlott felt a similar lash of ironic victimization. As a federal judge, she was an early adopter in banning the idea and practice of racial profiling. Earlier this month, three black people broke into her home and were pushing her 79-year old husband down a flight of stairs when she escaped to dial 911.

She had no qualms in immediately identifying her attackers by race. She did it twice.

Even other NPR news people are not exempt. In 2013 while Code Switch was busy assuring the “educated and sophisticated” audience of NPR that black racial violence and hostility was just another concoction of the big bad Colin Flaherty and the suckers who believed his books and videos and news reports, this NPR honcho chimed in.

“Folks, as a Program Director at an NPR station, I don't usually get involved in discussions like this, but I have personal experience with this so-called game,” said John Hingsbergen from Kentucky.

“It was this past May (2013), just a block from the Hilton Garden Inn on First St, N.E. While I was taking a brief walk around the area, within sight of the hotel and with plenty of other people on the sidewalk, a teenager walked up to me and smacked me on the side of the head. Thankfully, he was not strong enough to "knock out" this 60+ year old so all I did was spin around, only to see him take off running to the other side of the street to join two companions who were laughing as if it was the most hilarious thing they'd ever seen.”

“Is there a racial component? I choose to believe not but sadly this was an African American teenager attacking an older white man.”

Meanwhile Kaplan’s husband will probably live. But he will never be the same.

Crazy Harvard Dean: ‘Microagressions’ As Bad as ****

Wasn't Harvard the place where smart people went?

Crazy Harvard Law School Dean Martha L. Minow told Michigan graduates “microaggressions” are as bad as ****.
And she’s the dean!
The Washington Examiner reported:

In a move that should surprise no one who has been watching the utter meltdown of privileged college students this year, a Harvard Law School dean has compared “microaggressions” to sexual assault and violence.

Dean Martha L. Minow, during her winter commencement speech on injustice, asked her students to keep fighting even after they graduate. She made references to apartheid and segregated schools before making the bizarre analogy.

“Taking even seemingly small acts in one’s own school can build the culture that prevents violence, bullying, sexual assault and racial microaggressions,” she said.

Those students should demand their money back.

BLM Activist and City Council Candidate Charged With Theft in Baltimore
This is after he was charged with attempting to incite a riot over Freddie Gray...


As usual, Black Lives Matter activists prove to be nothing more hypcorites and thugs. Rev. Westley West, who happens to be running for Baltimore City Council, was charged with misdemeanor theft.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the 27-year-old pastor was charged Dec. 29 with one count of theft. West allegedly used campaign funds for personal bills and to give to his church.

Baltimore County prosecutor Adam Lippe said the charge stems from allegations that West used the bank account routing number of Elias Wilf Corp. on Dolfield Road in Owings Mills "to pay his own bills and send money to his church."

Lippe said West worked as a truck driver for the flooring company for a short period last summer. The amount allegedly stolen totaled more than $700, he said.

West's attorney, Donald Wright, called the charge "a false accusation."

"He denies doing anything illegal or improper," Wright said.

West is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 7th District seat held by Councilman Nick J. Mosby, who is running for mayor. West is pastor of Faith Empowered Ministries.

This is not the first time the BLM pastor has had a run-in with the law for unscrupulous behavior. In September, West was arrested after a protest catalyzed by the Freddie Gray incident. He was charged with inciting a riot, malicious destruction of property, disorderly conduct, and a litany of other offenses.

West has said police targeted him because he was leading the protest and has called the charges "false." He was charged with attempting to incite a riot, malicious destruction of property, disorderly conduct, disturbance of the peace, false imprisonment, and failure to obey for stopping traffic during a protest.

 Nice. Just what we all seek in our city council members. One thin West's legal entanglements highlight is the hypocrisy of the Black Lives Matter movement. If one claims to be a good representative of the African American community, then it hardly bodes well for that person to be arrested and charged with multiple crimes, multiple times. As usual, BLM serves as an excuse for people to break the law, incite violence and just generally behave badly. Its members, for the most part, couldn't care less about helping the community.

GOP Lawmakers Looking to Oust Mizzou Professor Who Called for 'Muscle'
“Anybody who saw that video… I can understand how completely unacceptable her behavior was."


Remember the University of Missouri assistant professor caught on video calling for "muscle" to help her eject a student journalist from covering a campus protest there last November? Now more than 100 Republican state lawmakers are calling for her firing and that of a staff member who attempted to assist her.

According to USA Today, eighteen state senators and 99 House members signed letters to top administrators of the University of Missouri, charging that communication assistant professor Melissa Click "failed to meet the obligations she has to her supervisors, fellow professors, University students, and the taxpayers of Missouri" when she demonstrated her totalitarian attitude toward freedom of the press.

In that video taken at a protest sparked by black students' concerns that administrators weren't doing enough to address racism on campus, Click appears to grab at a camera carried by student journalist Mark Schierbecker and shouted for some "muscle" to help remove him from the site. Janna Basler, the university's assistant director of Greek Life, likewise appeared in the video to have physical contact with a student photographer at the same event.

The lawmakers wrote,

The fact that, as a professor teaching in the communication department and school of journalism, she displayed such a complete disregard for the First Amendment rights of reporters should be enough to question her competency and aptitude for her job. It should be evident that these actions are inappropriate, illegal and unacceptable for a faculty member of the University of Missouri.

In response the Republican lawmakers, colleagues supportive of Click released a letter on Tuesday that was sent to university officials last month, signed by more than 100 university faculty members. It noted that Click expressed remorse for her actions soon afterward, and insisted that her actions "constitute at most a regrettable mistake":

We believe that Click has been wronged in the media by those who have attacked her personally and have called for her dismissal. We affirm our support of her as a colleague, a teacher, and a scholar, and we call upon the University to defend her First Amendment rights of protest and her freedom to act as a private citizen.

But State Rep. Caleb Jones, a GOP lawmaker from Columbia, said that "It's imperative that the university act swiftly to remove her from her position."

Even Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, a Democrat, though he feels the letter is an attempt to "micromanage" the university, agrees that Click’s behavior was outrageous:

“Anybody who saw that video… I can understand how completely unacceptable her behavior was. The fact that people are upset, I’m okay with that."

Click, who does not have tenure, resigned her courtesy appointment in the journalism school the day after the incident but remains an assistant professor of communication at the university. According to a university bio, her "current research projects involve 50 Shades of Grey readers, the impact of social media in fans’ relationship with Lady Gaga, masculinity and male fans, messages about class and food in reality television programming, and messages about work in children's television programs."

About that, the lawmakers wrote, "While we recognize there may be some value in pop culture studies, her behavior has the public questioning her 'research' and her

The Intercept Fires Reporter for Fabrications

imagine that...

The Intercept, an online left-wing news outlet founded by eBay billionaire Pierre Omidyar and edited by, among others, Glenn Greenwald, has announced the firing of reporter Juan Thompson (pictured) for a series of known fabrications reminiscent of Stephen Glass, The New Republic reporter fired in 1998 for serial fabrications. According to the site’s editor-in-chief Betsy Reed, Thompson’s sins include both invented people and quotes.

The Intercept’s note on the firing informs readers:

An investigation into Thompson’s reporting turned up three instances in which quotes were attributed to people who said they had not been interviewed. In other instances, quotes were attributed to individuals we could not reach, who could not remember speaking with him, or whose identities could not be confirmed. In his reporting Thompson also used quotes that we cannot verify from unnamed people whom he claimed to have encountered at public events. Thompson went to great lengths to deceive his editors, creating an email account to impersonate a source and lying about his reporting methods.

Fully retracted is a story about Scott Roof, cousin of Dylann Roof, the racist terrorist who murdered nine black churchgoers last year in South Carolina. The story quotes the cousin as ascribing a motive to Dylann Roof involving a girl he liked dating a black man.

Scott Roof does not appear to exist.

Four stories have been corrected, one attacking Donald Trump and his supporters.

The Trump correction in part reads:

An earlier version of this story included quotes attributed to a woman and her husband, described as Trump supporters. The woman was identified by her first name, Kathy, while the man was identified only as her husband. The reporter had provided a real individual’s full name and identity to editors but said the source did not want it to be used. When contacted, this individual said she did not support Trump, had not attended his rally, and had never spoken to our reporter.

The relevant section, which has been removed, read: “‘They need to be monitored and surveilled,’ said the woman, who was only willing to be identified as Kathy from Buckhall, Virginia. ‘We don’t need an influx of this in America. We’ve got to stop it.’ Her husband noted, ‘That’s what we like about Trump, he’s not afraid of the backlash. He tells the truth.’”

All five of the redacted/corrected stories involve race.

Thompson responded to Gawker with a letter he claims to have sent to Reed (the letter is undated). The fired reporter says that he is undergoing cancer treatments and is currently unable to access his reporter notebooks. In the lengthy letter, he does appear to leave the door open for the possibility that his quotes were indeed fabricated:

Moreover, after finally looking over the notes sent to me, I must say this: I had a habit of writing drafts of stories, placing the names of ppl I wanted to get quotes from in there, and then going to fetch the quotes.

Thompson’s verified Twitter feed is a swamp of fevered, racialist leftism.

Mizzou Braces for Massive Enrollment Drop Following Race Protests

In November angry race protesters at the University of Missouri in Columbia forced the campus president and chancellor to resign

The protests already cost the university a top national football recruit. Sci Martin from Louisiana said the campus “was out of control.”

In December the University of Missouri announced that applications for the coming school year have decreased noticeably over last year. And, applications by black students graduate students are down by almost 20%.

The University of Missouri announced this week they are projecting 900 fewer incoming freshman this fall.
St. Louis Today reported:

There’s no doubt the University of Missouri-Columbia has been wounded by a chain of recent events.

First, graduate assistants were upset with the university about losing benefits. Then, some legislators were angry because the school had ties to Planned Parenthood.

And of course, the school came under national scrutiny when many students protested after a series of racist incidents — the aftermath of which toppled top leadership.

What’s unclear is how all that discontent will affect enrollment and student recruitment.

Barbara Rupp, Mizzou’s director of admissions, sees cause for concern.

As it stands, applications and deposits made toward tuition are down. School leaders are projecting 900 fewer incoming freshmen for fall 2016 than fall 2015, according to currently available information.

University officials are quick to add that the 900 number is just a projection based on snapshots taken throughout the school year. The number could change drastically between now and next fall, they said.

A historic number of college freshmen expect to protest this year

This past year, colleges across the country, from Yale to Towson to Claremont McKenna, were rocked by protests. Students upset over racial issues took over the president’s office at Princeton, demanded the resignation of Ithaca College’s president, and forced out the chancellor and president of the entire University of Missouri system.

And this spring may be even more intense: Researchers at UCLA are predicting a continued rise in campus demonstrations based on the results of their annual freshman survey, which found students’ interest in political engagement at historically high levels.

It was yet another sign that many students are not waiting for social change — they are forcing it to happen, campus by campus.

Almost one in ten said they expected to participate in protests — the highest it has been in the 50 years the survey has been given.

The students most likely to protest are black students, one in six of whom said they expect to demonstrate.

“The protestses on college campues as well as communities in Ferguson, Baltimore and elsewhere really resonated with freshmen,” said said Kevin Eagan, director of the Cooperative Institutional Research Program of the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA.  the largest longitudinal study of college students in the U.S. — it reaches more than 140,000 full-time first-years at nearly 200 four-year institutions.

More than 41 percent of all students said that helping promote racial understanding is either an essential or a very important goal for them.

It wasn’t just concern about race: The high cost of college, student debt and sexual assault are also topics of intense interest, that could be flash points for student demonstrations.

He said they found substantial gains in interest in political and community engagement on almost every question in the survey that related to those issues.

“It’s incumbent on administrators to have some dialogue with students — to make sure they’re squarely considering students’ issues,” he said, “and have strategies to improve the overall campus climate.”

It also means college students have the potential to play a critical role in upcoming elections, he noted.

And college freshmen have been trending leftward, politically: The last time students identifying as far right or conservative outnumbered the percentage calling themselves far left or liberal was back in 1981. In the decades since then that conservative group has held in the low-twenties range, and the group describing themselves as “middle of the road” has eroded. Over the last 35 years, that middle ground has shifted further left.

In the 2015 survey, a third of students described themselves as liberal or far left, the most since 1973.

A little more than one in five said they were conservative or far right, down from one in four a decade ago.

Well over half think marijuana should be legal, and nearly two-thirds think abortion should be.

Forty percent said they want to become community leaders — the highest ever — and more than a fifth said they “hope to influence the political structure.”

And they plan to vote: Sixty percent said there was a very good chance they would vote during college — up from 50 percent in the 2014 survey.

Another, lying professor.

Black Studies Professor Accuses Cops of Racial Discrimination — So Police Released the Dashcam Video

After being accused of mistreating a Princeton University professor this past weekend, the Princeton, N.J., police department released dashcam video of their arrest, which purports to show very polite and friendly treatment by the law enforcement officers.

Imani Perry, a professor of African American Studies at the university, wrote on social media earlier this week that she was arrested for failing to pay a 3-year-old parking ticket. She was pulled over for speeding and the police did confirm that she was arrested Saturday.

“The police treated me inappropriately and disproportionately,” Perry wrote in a lengthy Facebook post, which she has since taken down over fears of hacking and harassment. “The fact of my blackness is not incidental to this matter.”

Police determined Perry was also driving on a suspended license and a warrant had been issued for her arrest, for failing to pay the past-due parking ticket, according to police Lt. John Bucchere. After hearing that Perry said police mistreated her, the department released the 30-minute footage of her arrest.

In the dashcam footage, an officer, who Princeton Police haven’t identified, is in a police cruiser as Perry drives by in her Acura SUV. The officer proceeds to stop the professor around 9:30 a.m. and is seen talking with Perry, who is still in her vehicle.

At that point, the officer returns to his squad car, calls dispatch, and learns that Perry’s license is suspended. He then returns to her vehicle and questions her. Perry said she was unaware of the suspension and was also unaware of the outstanding warrant.

A second female officer then joins the first officer and they are then seen, seemingly politely, telling Perry that they will have to handcuff her. The male officer can be heard saying, “Unfortunately, … because of the warrant, we have to put you in handcuffs.”

Perry and the two officers then move to the side of the police car and out of the camera’s view. The male officer then performs a pat down, as he can be heard giving search explanations. The female officer is present.

The police have denied that Perry was mistreated. However, university officials remain unmoved.

Perry received the “unequivocal support” of Princeton’s African American Studies department on Wednesday.

“We were outraged to hear of her treatment at the hands of the Princeton police: that a male officer subjected her to a pat-down in the presence of a female officer and that she was handcuffed to a table after her arrest for an unpaid parking ticket,” the statement from the college reads.

In addition, Princeton President Christopher Eisgruber pledged his support on Tuesday, expressing concern over Perry’s arrest, describing her as a “respected scholar and beloved teacher.” Eisgruber doubled down Thursday, issuing another statement.

The case is currently being reviewed by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, according to NJ.com

Lets look at why this Liberal nut job RACIST was arrested.

Quote
The arrest came after officers stopped Dr. Perry around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday for driving 67 miles per hour in a 45 m.p.h. zone

WOW!!! A little fast there aren't we? Cops will pull anyone over when you are going that fast.

Quote
learned during a routine check that her driving privileges had been suspended and a warrant had been issued for her arrest over two unpaid parking violations from 2013

Wait!! You mean she did not have a LEGAL drivers license? So she is willingly breaking the law. She know's she is breaking the law. And she is of course, a professor.

Quote
“The warrant commands the officer to take the person into custody,” Captain Sutter said.

Oh so the cops did their job. Hunh... imagine that. They stopped some one driving recklessly, and than found out the person was a criminal.  ::) Liberals, laws do not matter to them they only matter when they can use them against others.

Go Figure: Beyonce Can't Get Police to Work Security For Her Shows

“The fact that Beyoncé used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her antipolice message shows she does not support law enforcement."

The Washington Times reports that the Tampa Police Department is having trouble getting officers to volunteer to provide security for pop superstar Beyonce’s upcoming concert, following her recent, controversial Super Bowl halftime performance of the song “Formation,” which many critics have argued is anti-police.

Off-duty officers frequently volunteer to work concerts and sporting events for the extra income, but so far no one has signed up to work Beyonce’s April 29 concert at Raymond James Stadium, which is expected to sell out.

Police spokesman Steve Hegarty didn't speculate on whether the lack of signups indicated that officers might be angry about Beyonce's pro-Black Panthers Super Bowl performance and the song's Black Lives Matter theme. In any case, he said,

“We’re going to staff it because we have a responsibility to do that regardless of how controversial it might be, who the artist might be, or the politician might be. This is a couple of months away, so we’ve still got plenty of time to fill those slots.”

Meanwhile, the Miami Fraternal Order of Police issued a press release Thursday stating that they are planning to boycott Beyoncé’s concert in April and are urging others to do the same. Javier Oritz, President of the Miami FOP, said in the press release:

“The fact that Beyoncé used this year’s Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her antipolice message shows how she does not support law enforcement. We ask all law enforcement labor organizations to join our boycott across the country and to boycott all of her concerts.”

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder: 'All Lives Matter' is a Racial Slur ::)

“What it’s gonna take to dismantle white supremacy is white folks actually gotta give up something.”

Jerome Hudson at Breitbart reports that Black Lives Matter co-founder Marissa Jenae Johnson told Fox News correspondent John Roberts that the phrase “all lives matter” - used to counter the "black lives matter" mantra - is a “new racial slur.”

In a recent interview with Roberts, Johnson explained why "all lives matter" is a racial slur:

    “White Americans have created the conditions that require a phrase like ‘Black Likes Matter. Do you know how horrific it is to grow up as a child in a world that so hates you? While you’re literally being gunned down in the street, while you’re being rounded up and mass incarcerated and forced into prison slavery?”

Roberts didn't bother to challenge her on this, even though America is not "a world that so hates" blacks, even though prison is not the same as slavery, and even though there is no "mass incarceration" of blacks here. That phrase suggests that blacks are being rounded up en masse and herded into internment centers simply for being black, like the Japanese in World War II. The fact is that blacks who are incarcerated got there by committing serious crimes and being convicted of them as individuals in a court of law. Are blacks sometimes wrongly convicted? Tragically, yes, and that's something that must never be tolerated or left uncorrected. But Johnson does not acknowledge that blacks are a disproportionate number of convicts because they commit a hugely disproportionate number of crimes. She does not acknowledge that the vast majority of blacks "gunned down in the street" were violently resisting arrest like Ferguson's Michael Brown. She does not acknowledge that the black community bears any responsibility for its own condition.

“Black Lives Matter is not a strong enough statement for me,” she added. If she really cared about black lives, she would acknowledge the scourges of black abortions and black-on-black crime. But those black lives don't push the proper narrative.

You may recall Johnson as the BLM activist who stormed the stage to interrupt candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders at a campaign rally last year. When Fox's Roberts asked her why she targeted “the far-left candidate” to protest, Johnson replied that Sanders is “left for white folks. He’s left for the needs and concerns of mainstream white America.”

“The Democrats have always been reliant on the black vote,” Johnson added. “Part of what we’re doing is waking black voters up to their power as a voting bloc within the Democratic party.”

“Has the Democratic Party taken African-American voters for granted?” Roberts asked naively.

“Consistently, always,” Johnson replied, laughing. “Always and forever.”

And yet Roberts didn't ask her the next obvious line of questions: Then why not vote Republican for once? Why not get off the Democrat plantation if you're tired of being a victim? Why not reject the Democrat party's failure to elevate the black community? Of course, the notion of voting Republican would be unthinkable to her, because the right has been so effectively demonized as the party of rich, white racists.

When asked what needs to happen for progress to be made, Johnson threw out some vague proposals about taking down white supremacy:

    “What it’s gonna take to dismantle white supremacy is white folks actually gotta give up something. You have to actually sacrifice yourself. You have to be willing to give up the things that you currently benefit from.”

She didn't specify what, but in any case there is no mainstream white supremacy in America. This is a country with a black President and First Lady, black Supreme Court justices, black attorney generals, black generals in the military, black CEOs, black Congresspeople and Senators, black attorneys, black judges, and on and on. There is no white supremacy apart from marginalized pockets of racist fools (remember, this is a country in which racist murderer Dylann Roof couldn't find anyone in person or online to join him in his massacre of Charleston churchgoers), nor is there any systemic white racism in America, where discrimination is illegal.

But that's how the Black Lives Matter movement must characterize America in order to justify its activism and its self-victimization.

Beyonce offered security by Louis Farrakhan

That should go over well just about everywhere.

Farrakhan's remarks were in response to the controversy surrounding Beyonce. Some people are upset that, during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show a couple weeks ago, Beyonce appeared to show support for Black Lives Matter, the Black Panthers, and Mario Woods, the knife-wielding man shot and killed by five San Francisco police officers in December. At least one police union, in Miami, has said its members are against providing Beyonce any security in the future, while other law enforcement leaders have demanded an apology.

"She started talking all that black stuff ... and white folks were like, 'We don't know how to deal with that,'" said Farrakhan, according to TMZ.

Farrakhan also tore into former New York mayor, Rudy Giuliani, adding "Look at how you treatin' Beyonce now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI (Fruit of Islam) will."

Farrakhan also urged the hip-hop community to speak up, singling out Kendrick Lamar. "Say what you feel. Put it out there!"

Beyonce has not commented on Farrakhan's remarks.

FAKE HATE: Charges Filed Against Black Students For Fabricating Racial Incident

Three black students will reportedly face criminal charges for fabricating a racial incident that led to threats of violence toward accused white students.


FAKE HATE: Charges Filed Against Black Students For Fabricating Racial Incident

FakeHate™ at University of Albany.
black lives albany

Three black students will reportedly face criminal charges for fabricating a racial incident that led to threats of violence toward accused white students.


Campus Reform reports:

The self-proclaimed “victims” of a racist bus attack will be charged for faking the incident after police have reviewed video evidence from the bus.

Never missing an opportunity to exploit race crisis of any size, Hillary Clinton jumped in to attack the accused.

The January 30 incident caused such an uproar that Hillary Clinton even got involved, tweeting, “There’s no excuse for racism and violence on a college campus.”

So will Hillary be updating her tweet to read “There’s no excuse for fake racism and fake violence on a college campus”?

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?

The fight was started by the black students who hurled racist language at the white students!

Cameras from inside the bus are said to debunk their claims of racial violence. One source who watched the video firsthand said it was one of the three young women who threw the first punch, and that at no time did any passengers hurl racial slurs as first claimed.

The source said it was one of the accusers who used a slur against a white passenger and called her a nasty name.

Sadly, when the story first broke, the University President created a hostile environment toward the accused when he released a statement accepting the black students’ narrative at face value:

UAlbany president Robert Jones said he is “deeply concerned, saddened and angry about this incident”.

Jones goes on to say “There is no place in the UAlbany community for violence, no place for racial intolerance and no place for gender violence”. [more…]

His students took the cue and started harassing the accused, leading one of them to drop out of school after facing threats of violence.

One of the self-proclaimed victims, Asha Burwell, tweeted that she was beaten because of the color of her skin. Her brother, San Diego Chargers lineman Tyreek Burwell, fired off a threatening message to a student whom he thought hurt his sister.

That student dropped out, likely because UAlbany isn’t a safe environment while these racist and potentially violent students are allowed to terrorize the campus with the support of their biased university president.

Make UAlbany a SafeSpace™ – Fire the President. Expel the students.

Three Things Mark Zuckerberg liberal idiot Won’t Be Telling Facebook Employees About Black Lives Matter

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is deeply, deeply troubled by the fact that people are writing “All Lives Matter” on Facebook’s headquarters wall.

Later his week, Zuckerberg will be hosting a re-education camp town hall meeting to patiently explain to Facebook employees how awesome Black Lives Matter is.

For the edification of those employees, we thought we would do a brief rundown on a few things that Zuck will not be mentioning to them.

1) Black Lives Matter Are Pathologically Dishonest

It’s been amply demonstrated that nearly every issue that Black Lives Matter protests about is based on lies.

Mike Brown never said “don’t shoot” with his hands up. Sandra Bland wasn’t killed by police, but killed herself after her family refused to bail her out. The recent case of a racist assault at the University of Albany promoted by Black Lives Matter turned out to be a hoax, and police are now prosecuting the “activists” behind it.

This isn’t a shock, because the entire premise of Black Lives Matter is a falsehood. Statistically, the biggest threat to black Americans isn’t white America, or the police – it’s black Americans.

Zuckerberg hires a lot of people who know math. He better hope they don’t actually look at the statistics.

2) Black Lives Matter Isn’t Even Original

Black Lives Matter is essentially the Black Panther party reimagined by lesbians with smart phones.

The three self-described queer women who started the Black Lives Matter movement ripped off the main messaging of the Black Panthers but got rid of the cool sunglasses, leather jackets, and berets and replaced them with whining on social media about transgender issues fighting for the rights of illegal aliens.

Black Lives Matter even stole their original list of demands almost verbatim from the Black Panthers 10 Point Program. They have since erased that page.

Of course, the lesbian leadership of Black Lives Matter doesn’t mention the fact that Black Panther party Minister of information Eldridge Cleaver compared homosexuality to “baby r@pe” in his book Soul on Ice… so we’ll just get past that part, too.

Just because Mark Zuckerberg wore a hoodie day in and day out for years doesn’t mean he’s anything more than an annoying honky as far as black power activists are concerned.

3) Black Lives Matter Hates Free Speech

Whatever color it may be, we know one thing for sure about the skin of Black Lives Matter advocates: it is extremely thin.

If you want to get blocked quickly on Twitter by a Black Lives Matter advocate, it’s usually as simple as disagreeing with them about anything. Many have learned that you don’t even actually need to tweet at a Black Lives Matter advocate to get blocked, because in some cases if you’re just tagged in a conversation they don’t like and are white, they will block you.

But it’s not just social media. Black Lives Matter advocates and allies have intimidated reporters in public spaces, trying to block people out of their “safe spaces” and recently acted like violent goons towards Breitbart News reporter Adelle Nazarian outside a speech by Ben Shapiro at Cal State Los Angeles.

Mark Zuckerberg should remember that since Facebook makes its living on the back of the First Amendment, he might not want to advocate for people who hate it so much.

Van Jones Won't Hear Jeffrey Lord's Truth Bomb on Racist Democrats
"The same old formula: racism to fuel progressivism…"


As CNN covered the results of Tuesday's primary voting, commentator Van Jones sparred with political strategist and Reagan administration alum Jeffrey Lord over Donald Trump's perceived connection with the Ku Klux Klan. What it really boiled down to was Jones not being a real fan of history, especially when it comes to the Democrats' actual association with the KKK.

Here's a short clip:

http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/van-jones-wont-hear-jeffrey-lords-truth-bomb-racist-democrats

    The same old formula: racism to fuel progressivism is what is being used today. David Duke was a big fan of Occupy Wall Street as was President Obama. That's today! That's not 150 years ago!

Here, maybe this A.F. Branco cartoon can help clear it up:

Shocker: After Caving To Protests, Mizzou Has HUGE Budget Gap

Thats what you get when you give in to liberal cry babies

   
The University of Missouri (MU) is losing about 1500 students and is facing a huge $32 million budget shortfall four months after it attracted national attention as the site of massive race-based campus protests.

“I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall. I wish I had better news,” said MU interim chancellor Hank Foley in a Wednesday letter to school staff that was obtained by Fox Sports.

According to Foley’s letter, MU will have about 1500 fewer students in fall 2016 compared to last year, an unexpected drop that is in turn causing a big dip in the school’s tuition income.

Because of the abrupt and unexpected nature of the shortfall, Foley is taking immediate and severe steps to fix the situation: The school budget is being cut 5 percent across the board, all hiring is being frozen (barring exceptional circumstances), and annual raises have been canceled. He has also announced a new, more intensive effort to recruit potential Mizzou students by phone, email, and even via Skype.

Even with all these measures, Foley anticipates MU having a deficit of about $1o million,which he said would be made up using the school’s reserve funds.

In November 2015, MU was rocked by major protests led by the Concerned Student 1950 group, which accused President Timothy Wolfe of not doing enough to address racial tensions on campus. After black players on the school football team announced a strike, Wolfe resigned and the school caved to a host of other protester demands. Meanwhile, the same day of Wolfe’s resignation, communications professor Melissa Click grabbed headlines for attacking a student journalist who tried to cover the ongoing protests.

Now, while Click and Wolfe are gone, the consequences of that turbulent November continue to reverberate, not the least because Concerned Student 1950 continues to engage in very public protests while demanding even more concessions from the school.

It was already known that MU had seen a drop in applications following the protests, but Foley’s letter drives home just how big a blow the school has been dealt.

Foley doesn’t break down the 1,500 lost student by class year, but the bulk of the decline comes from a major dip in the size of the entering freshman class. How major? In 2015, MU had 6,200 freshman undergraduates, meaning its freshman class size may have shrunk by 20 percent or more, an incredible swing for a single year.
Notably, Foley’s letter makes no mention of the protests as a potential factor in Mizzou’s declining appeal.

Foley also is unlikely to have much luck in turning to Missouri lawmakers for support. Disgusted by the university’s actions last fall, Republicans have refused to increase its budget and have even been considering making a big cut to the school’s state support.

'Marginalized' Students Make Wild Demands, Threaten to 'Mobilize' if Ignored
An insane 19-page list including racial quotas and free money.


They should really think of letting these communist cry babies go

 A group has formed at the University of Arizona that is demanding an end to alleged racism on campus, or else. They are the Marginalized Students of the University of Arizona and with this formation comes a 19-page list of demands the school must implement or they will "mobilize."

The list is very detailed and covers a wide range of issues the group feels has largely been neglected by campus administration. The demands cover issues for black students, Asian students, LGBT students, Native American students, and female students.

"It is important to note that these are Demands, not simply requests or suggestions," the letter states. "Should these demands not be met or properly negotiated to our standards, we will mobilize our students."

The demands are based around a "10-year plan" to "increase retention and graduation rates for marginalized students, sustain diversity curriculum and training, and promote a more safe and inclusive campus environment." The goal of this plan is to directly affect the "finances, health and wellness" of students and faculty.

It's a doozy of a read and there is a lot to chew on, but here are just some of the more fanatical demands:

    School staff, residence assistants, Greek associations, et al, must receive "Cultural Competency and Safe Zone training."
    A general student emergency fund that does not get charged as debt to the student -- that is, $35,000 for each Cultural and Resource Center.
    More financial aid to marginalized "identities," along with a full time financial aid counselor for each group.
    Increase in financial support for students with food insecurity.
    Counselors of color for Campus Mental and Physical Health Services.
    All restrooms should include small trash cans in all stalls, free tampons, and free menstrual pads.
    In addition to free condoms, Dental Dams, external and internal condoms, and ​Pre­exposure prophylaxis (​PrEP) must be accessible through Campus Health.
    Implementation of Trigger Warnings within course materials and content.
    Correct pronouns to be respected within classroom settings and gender neutral restrooms.
    Specific religious "spaces" specific to student demographics, including Native students to "practice Spirituality."
    Deferred housing fees for ALL Black students.
    A revision and transparent posting of the consequences and processes for students, faculty, staff who are found to be involved with microaggressions, aggressions, and hate speech in the classroom, on campus, and online.
    Allow only black students to occupy the Martin Luther King Jr. Building, plus new renovations to the building.
    Child care facilities.
    **** victim advocacy and stiffer punishments for sexual misconduct.
    Diversify faculty, school promotions, curriculum and all administrative practices to represent these "marginalized" groups.

As The College Fix notes, making all of these changes would cost a fortune, but nowhere does the letter suggest how the school could pay for such demands. What an oversight! (And an incredibly convenient omission.)

They were obviously too distracted to think it all the way through, what with all the signs to make and hold and memorizing rhyming words:

VIDEO: Harvard students debate whether whites should kill themselves due to ‘privilege’

HARVARD  ::)

 White lives do not matter, according to a student debater/activist from the University of West Georgia.

Miguel Feliciano, along with fellow West Georgia student Damiyr Davis, reportedly participated in a recent debate with other students at Harvard University.

During an exchange with their opponents, Feliciano suggested that white people should kill themselves because of their “white privilege.”

The exchange was caught on video and posted on YouTube.

https://youtu.be/RC-Cqkq6zWc

“White life is wrong,” Feliciano was quoted as saying by Infowars.com. “Our argument is that we should never affirm white life. White life is based off black subjugation.”

When a white debater asked Feliciano whether he should commit suicide, Feliciano said “I don’t see why not, it’s ethical.”

When the white debater suggested that it might be better to remain alive and fight the social forces that promote “white privilege,” Feliciano rejects the notion.

“Struggling against the structure means putting yourself on the line, putting your body on the line, do it. Affirmative suicide, that’s cool, it’s one little step in the right direction,” Feliciano said, according to Infowars.com.

Ironically, the debate topic was supposed to be about renewable energy.

“The black debaters simply ‘chose’ to point out their opponents’ skin color and begin advocating genocide,” reported InvestmentWatchdogBlog.com. “They expressly stated that these were their ‘sincere beliefs,’ not just an argument to win a debate.”

Feliciano and Davis are not some anonymous student crackpots posing as serious debaters.

They form a respected two-person debate team that took second place at the 2013 Cross-Examination Debate Association Nationals, according to Infowars.com.

Feliciano also acts as an instructor at the Eddie Conway Liberation Institute, an annual debate camp at Coppin State University that reportedly instructs high school students on debate strategy and radical thought, Infowars.com reported.

The institute is named after former Black Panther Party member Eddie Conway, who was convicted and imprisoned for 44 years for his involvement with the 1970 murder of a Baltimore police officer.

NAACP Joins With George Soros Groups To Plot And Carry Out Massive Civil Disobedience

“On Monday, April 18th, hundreds will come together for a day of mass civil disobedience to save our democracy; will you be one of them? Together, we’ll push for a Congress of Conscience — one that stands up for our democracy rather than stands in its way.”

4/5/16

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) says it’s part of a coalition of leftwing groups planning a second wave of protests and mass civil disobedience scheduled to disrupt Washington, DC later this month.   

Many of the participating groups are backed by billionaire George Soros. The coalition, calling itself Democracy Awakening, is a three-day activist movement that claims it is “coming together to demand a democracy that works for all of us – a nation where our votes are not denied and money doesn’t buy access and power.”

It is the sister movement of Democracy Spring, which is currently in the midst of a 10-day protest march from Philadelphia to DC, with plans for a major escalation in DC on April 11. On that date, the group says it is plotting “one of the largest civil disobedience actions in a generation.” As of this writing, 3,404 activists specifically pledged online to participate in the main civil disobedience event and risk arrest on on April 11 in D.C.



After Democracy Spring begins to wind down, Democracy Awakening plans a second wind of revolutionary energy starting on Saturday, April 16.

Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, a group that says it champions citizen interests, is a lead organizer of Democracy Awakening. Weissman told Breitbart News in an interview on Tuesday that the Awakening movement’s specific plans for “direct action” are not yet finalized, but he said it will include civil disobedience and activists risking arrest.

Asked why the group decided to take part in Democracy Awakening, Raquel Coombs, the NAACP’s vice president for communications and digital media, told Breitbart News:


This Presidential election will be the first in 50 years without the full protections of the Voting Rights Act. States with the worst histories of discrimination are pushing for new barriers to block the young, the poor, the elderly and minority voters from the ballot in 2016.  Congress has solutions to restore the integrity of the voting process and remove those barriers but has so far failed to act on any of those legislative proposals.

Democracy Awakening is our way of coming together across all faiths, political affiliation, and race and claim a democracy where every voice is heard and every vote counts equally.

Soros groups

Groups signed onto Democracy Awakening include a litany of Soros-financed organizations.  Those Soros-financed groups include MoveOn, AVAAZ, Campaign for America’s Future, Common Cause, Democracy for America, Democracy 21, Demos, Institute for Policy Studies, People for the American Way, Project Vote, and UHCAN.

Weissman’s Public Citizen has also received significant financing from Soros’ Open Society. Soros’ Open Society has also given numerous grants to the NAACP.

‘Day of Action’

Democracy Awakening is planning three days of teach-ins, marches, film screenings and even after-parties.  The marches aim to “circle the Capitol to call on Congress to stand up for democracy and stop blocking the reforms we need.”

So-called direct action initiatives commence on Monday, April 18, with the coalition dubbing that date the “Congress of Conscience Day of Action.” The day seeks to end the movement through a full day of “non-violent direct action and advocacy.”

Democracy Awakening requires activists who participate in the direct action to “attend a training on Saturday, Sunday, and/or the action briefing on Monday morning.”

Kai Newkirk, Democracy Spring’s campaign director, enumerated to Breitbart News the links between his group and Democracy Awakening:


We are like two wings of the same bird. We’re part of a united mobilization and the two coalitions have very substantial overlap within the organizations and the leaders and we’re taking responsibility for different part so the mobilizations.  We are leading the march from Philly to DC and the start of civil disobedience, and they are leading efforts of rally for democracy.

Reads Democracy Awakening’s website: “On Monday, April 18th, hundreds will come together for a day of mass civil disobedience to save our democracy; will you be one of them? Together, we’ll push for a Congress of Conscience — one that stands up for our democracy rather than stands in its way.”

Mizzou to Close Two Dorms Due to Lack of New Students Following Race Protests

 :D

In November angry race protesters at the University of Missouri in Columbia forced the campus president and chancellor to resign.

The University of Missouri will close two dorms in the fall semester.
Admissions to the university are down this year by 1,500 students after the Black Lives Matter race protests last year.
The Examiner reported:

    Following a drop in students applying for housing, the University of Missouri will not be placing students in two dorms for the fall 2016 semester.

    Mizzou will be closing the Respect and Excellence halls (ironic names, given the circumstances) in order to utilize dorm space “in the most efficient manner” to keep costs down.

    In March, the university announced that it saw a sharp drop in admissions for the coming school year, and will have 1,500 fewer students. This will lead to a $32 million budget shortfall for the school, prompting the need to close the dorms in order to save money.

    “Dear university community,” wrote interim chancellor Hank Foley in an email to the school back in March. “I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall. I wish I had better news.”

    The school announced a 5 percent cut “to all annual recurring general revenue budgets” and an “across-the-board hiring freeze for all units on campus.” The dorm closures are only the latest cost-cutting measures.

    The school announced the closures on its Residents’ Online Access to Rooms website. The two closed dorms contained Freshmen Interest Groups, special communities for first-year students housed within the dorms, which the university said could be available in other dorms.

    “Due to an expected decrease in the number of students needing housing at Mizzou this year, Residential Life will not be offering space in Respect or Excellence Halls at this time,” the university announced. “This is an effort to ensure we are using our halls in the most efficient manner, keeping our costs as low as possible so we can provide our students with the best possible living environments at an affordable cost.”

Anything Southern is Now Racist at Dartmouth, Apparently
"The millennial generation desperately wants good feeling all around — matters of principle be damned."

Last year at Dartmouth College, a small group of Black Lives Matter protesters demonstrated outside of a Kentucky Derby-themed party at the Kappa Delta Epsilon sorority because, in their view, a century-old southern horse race is racist. But a successful protest it was because this year, KDE voted almost unanimously to change its annual theme from Derby to 1960s free love Woodstock so as not to be repeat offenders.

This spurred 1979 alum Joseph Asch to conclude about the beliefs of his alma mater, "I guess anything southern is racist," he wrote on the school's daily blog, the Dartblog:

    Someday we’ll look back on this and it will all seem funny, but for now the College is once again the subject of national mockery after KDE sorority decided to change the theme of its longstanding, elegant Derby social event.

Asch noted how coverage of this story by Fox News, the National Review, The Daily Caller, and The Washington Times indicate they "are laughing at us."

He continued:

    This space has admired Derby for a number of years: where else could one see a profusion of gaily colored, gossamer sundresses and pastel shorts and shirts, let alone flamboyant hats. What a nice change from undergrad grunge.

    But the event was marred last year by BLM demonstrators, who chose the moment to protest the ill-treatment of minorities by the police — a worthy thought, but seemingly one unrelated to a party taking place on the same day as the Kentucky Derby.

To see students so easily cave to the demands of a few to cancel a sorority tradition seemed inconceivable to Asch, who wrote:

    The millennial generation desperately wants good feeling all around — matters of principle be damned — so why provoke others with an event that, what really?, evokes the South.

    So, again, let’s ask: what is the operative principle here? That someone somewhere didn’t like the party’s innocent theme, so it’s time to change it, rather than have a discussion about the merits of the dispute. Is that what passes for intellectual debate on an Ivy League campus nowadays?

Yes.

Report: Crime Spikes in Wake of Black Lives Matter
They always hurt the people they claim to champion.

It's always the way. The very people the Left claims to champion are the very ones they end up hurting.

New analysis conducted by FiveThirtyEight and reported by LawNews reveals that violent crime in the city of Chicago has spiked in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests. The report claims that the increase in violence is "directly related to the release of a video that shows the police shooting of Laquan McDonald and the protests, activism and reforms that followed shortly thereafter." The idea is that police officers are taking a less proactive approach to law enforcement for fear of reprisals.

    According to the FiveThirtyEight analysis, crime data shows 175 homicides and 675 nonfatal shootings incidents occurred in Chicago over the time period beginning December 1, 2015 and ending on March 31, 2016 (the McDonald shooting video was released on November 24, 2015).  This reflects a 48% percent increase in homicides and a 73% increase in nonfatal shootings from the same time period one-year ago.  FiveThirtyEight describes the statistical variations from year to year as too significant to be “explained by seasonal [weather] fluctuations or chance.”

    If these numbers hold, Chicago will be on pace for approximately 570 homicides and more than 2,000 nonfatal shootings, which would make it the most violent year for the city in over a decade.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said recently, "no police officer wants to be the next viral video," and that about sums up the problem.

     Jamie Kalven, the journalist whose reporting is credited with drawing attention to the McDonald case, said that in speaking with Chicago officers he found “a genuine lack of clarity about the job description, the parameters of the job, and who will have their back in ambiguous situations.” As a result, officers are taking less proactive policing measures that are meant to prevent crime, such as street stops or really any “discretionary interactions with civilians.”

Of course this was all predictable and likely the result the Left wanted.

A 16-year-old Chicago gang member was shot and killed by police on Monday night and it took Black Lives Matter no time to try to color the narrative well before all the facts are known -- a similar tactic used in the Michael Brown shooting to introduce the "hands up, don't shoot" fabrication.

Chicago police say Pierre Loury, a known gang member who regularly posted pictures of himself armed on Facebook, was pulled over in a vehicle suspected of being involved in an earlier shooting. Loury quickly exited the vehicle and fled on foot with police in pursuit. During the chase, Loury reportedly pulled out his gun and pointed it at a police officer who opened fire, hitting the suspect in the chest. Loury later died from his wounds. A weapon was recovered at the scene.

The protesters don't see it that way and are claiming another case of racially motivated police brutality. Over 100 people gathered for vigils and demonstrations the day after the shooting. Loury's family joined in the protests, claiming their son was unarmed and said the police are lying.

Some are saying that Loury was shot in the air as he tried to jump a fence. Others claim several cops high-fived after the shooting. None of this is confirmed but is being sworn to have happened. Of course, some people swore Michael Brown had his hands up when he was shot, too.

The boy's aunt spoke about the shooting and said her nephew is just like everybody else in the neighborhood:

    He's a typical Chicago teen male, no different than any other young man living in this city, facing some of the same challenges and trials and tribulations.

Unfortunately, the aunt destroyed her own defense saying, "typical Chicago teen male." Many typical black male teenagers in Chicago right now are shooting each other in record numbers. These are facts that the BLM movement willingly ignore in favor of keeping the focus on "racist" police officers.

The Chicago Tribune posted police scanner audio of the incident.

White Privilege Conference: Almost Everything Bad Is Tied To Christianity

Thats right, there it is. Its all Christians fault. They are the one to blame for every bad thing in the world. Get used to this narrative; as this will become the new battle cry.

A lecturer at the 2016 White Privilege Conference (WPC) made the bold claim that almost every dysfunction in society, from racism and sexism to global warming and a weak economy, is united by the ideology of “Christian hegemony.”

Activist and author Paul Kivel may share his name with a great Christian saint and evangelist, but that’s about it. According to Kivel, just about everything bad in the world can be traced to the core ideas of Christianity, which “colonize our mind.”

“In the United States, there’s seven to ten thousand predominantly white, Christian men, who run the major institutions in our society: The corporations, the political parties, the think tanks, the foundations, universities, [and] cultural institutions,” said Kivel.

Kivel made his case that the United States exists as a “Christian hegemony” by asking attendees to consider a variety of ways Christianity quietly influenced their daily lives, such as by making Sunday exist as the normative “day of rest” and by motivating non-profits ranging from the YMCA to drug rehab programs.

From there, he lateraled to explaining how Christianity provides the ideological underpinning of just about everything toxic in society, aided by a series of clearly homemade posters. On one poster, he showed “Christian hegemony” at the center of a web that included ideas like “racism,” “sexism,” and “ableism.”

Kivel said three problems are particularly severe in the modern world, and all of them are caused or made worse by Christianity. First, he pointed towards wars in the Middle East, which he says are a byproduct of a missionary drive to spread Western ideas and influence in non-Western lands.
Second, he declares Christianity is to blame for a weak economy, as it provides the God-like “invisible hand” that supposedly drives market forces within a flawed capitalist system.

“We live in a society in which it is widely believed that there is a just God, and that he rewards those who work hard and are good people, i.e. the job creators … and that he punishes those who are not good people, i.e. who are poor or slothful,” said Kivel. “The invisible hand is the hand of God.”

Third, Kivel associated Christian hegemony with global warming, because under Christianity, mankind has dominion over the Earth, rather than requiring that humans treat the Earth itself as “sacred.”

Kivel also provided a set of Christian ideological beliefs that explained why Christianity could be linked to so much evil. For instance, he said Christian dualism made it too easy to condemn various things as bad and worthy of destruction.

“Think about how often during the day we say things are good or bad,” Kivel said. “It’s a rainy day, so we say it’s bad weather … There’s nothing inherently good or bad about the weather, or about people.” But thanks to Christianity, people keep seeing good and bad in everything and force a “with us or against us” mentality, Kivel complained.

Ironically, one quote featured on WPC’s own website is South African bishop Desmond Tutu’s statement that “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

Kivel also slammed Christianity for having a “hierarchical” view towards love, placing “God over people, men over women, parents over children, white people over people of color,” inevitably creating systems that justify and even glorify oppression.

While he rejects Christianity, Kivel doesn’t reject all spirituality, as he appears to have an affinity for American Indian beliefs, touting them as more respectful of the Earth’s sacredness. He ended the meeting with his own prayer listing his maxims for a good life.

“Value all forms of diversity,” he said. “Recognized multiple truths. Act cooperatively. Don’t proselytize … Return the land to native peoples.”
Kivel even opened his lecture by asking them to remember that the WPC was taking place on stolen American Indian land that rightfully still belongs to them. In this regard, he was actually mistaken. The WPC takes place in downtown Philadelphia, and Philadelphia’s land was not seized from Indians. Instead, William Penn amicably purchased the land from the Lenape because he wanted to have good relations with native tribes.

Cleveland settles lawsuit over Tamir Rice shooting for $6M

WHY? The cops were found that they were doing their job properly. Tamir pulled a gin on cops. You don,t do that. The mom is the one who should be blamed here. The people of Cleveland should sue their city council and have them pay out of their own pockets if they want to give money to this crazy woman.

CLEVELAND (AP) - The city on Monday reached a $6 million settlement in a lawsuit over the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old black boy shot by a white police officer while playing with a pellet gun outside a recreation center. An order filed in U.S. District Court in Cleveland said the city will pay out $3 million this year and $3 million the next. There was no admission of wrongdoing in the settlement. Family attorney Subodh Chandra called the settlement historic but added: "The resolution is nothing to celebrate because a 12-year-old child needlessly lost his life." The wrongful death suit filed by his family and estate against the city and officers and dispatchers who were involved alleged police acted recklessly when they confronted the boy on Nov.

The city on Monday reached a $6 million settlement in a lawsuit over the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old black boy shot by a white police officer while playing with a pellet gun outside a recreation center.

An order filed in U.S. District Court in Cleveland said the city will pay out $3 million this year and $3 million the next. There was no admission of wrongdoing in the settlement.

Family attorney Subodh Chandra called the settlement historic but added: "The resolution is nothing to celebrate because a 12-year-old child needlessly lost his life."

The wrongful death suit filed by his family and estate against the city and officers and dispatchers who were involved alleged police acted recklessly when they confronted the boy on Nov. 22, 2014.

Video of the encounter shows a cruiser skidding to a stop and rookie patrolman Timothy Loehmann firing within two seconds of opening the car door. Tamir wasn't given first aid until about four minutes later, when an FBI agent trained as a paramedic arrived. The boy died the next day.

Tamir's death has fueled the Black Lives Matter movement that firmly took root in 2014 after Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York City died at the hands of police. Grand juries declined to indict officers in those two deaths and in the shooting of Tamir.

A trial is pending for a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Brown's family. Garner's family received a $5.9 million in a settlement with New York City last year.

In the Rice family lawsuit, Samaria Rice had alleged that police failed to immediately provide first aid for her son and caused intentional infliction of emotional distress in how they treated her and her daughter after the shooting.

The officers had asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit. Loehmann's attorney has said he bears a heavy burden and must live with what happened.

Tamir's estate has been assigned $5.5 million of the settlement. A Cuyahoga County probate judge will decide how the amount will be divided. Samaria Rice, Tamir's mother, will receive $250,000. Claims against Tamir's estate account for the remaining $250,000. Tamir's father, Leonard Warner, was dismissed in February as a party to the lawsuit.

Chandra said the Rice family remains in mourning over Tamir's death.

"The state criminal justice process cheated them out of true justice," Chandra said.

A somber Mayor Frank Jackson said at a news conference Monday that "there is no price you can put on the life of a 12-year-old child." He said the shooting "should not have happened" but didn't elaborate.

Jackson said a use-of-force committee is examining the circumstances of the shooting to determine if Loehmann and his training officer, Frank Garmback, should be disciplined.

Steve Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, said in a news release that the Rice family should use part of the settlement to educate children about the dangers of handling real and replica firearms.

Loomis said something positive must come from the "tragic loss."

The officers had responded to a 911 call in which a man drinking a beer and waiting for a bus outside Cudell Recreation Center reported that a man was waving a gun and pointing it at people. The man told the call taker that the person holding the gun was likely a juvenile and the weapon probably wasn't real, but the call taker never passed that information to the dispatcher who gave Loehmann and Garmback the high-priority call.

Tamir was carrying a plastic airsoft gun that shoots nonlethal plastic pellets. He'd borrowed it that morning from a friend who warned him to be careful because the gun looked real. It was missing its telltale orange tip.

The settlement comes two years after the city settled another lawsuit connected to the killings of two unarmed black people in a 137-shot barrage of police gunfire at the end of a 2012 car chase. Cleveland settled a lawsuit brought by the families of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams for $3 million.

The fatal shootings of Russell and Williams were cited by the U.S. Justice Department in an investigation into excessive use of force by Cleveland police and helped lead to a court-monitored consent decree aimed at reforming the department.

Melissa Click Gives the 'Real' Reason She was Fired: 'I'm a White Lady'
And all the black people said, "Nice try!"


Melissa "Muscle" Click, everyone's favorite former assistant professor of communications who became known for giving a student journalist a hard time for applying the First Amendment, has a hilarious new theory as to why she was fired from her position at the University of Missouri: it was a coded message to black students that Mizzou doesn't like them standing up to whites.

Click proposed this off-the-wall theory to The Chronicle of Higher Education, adding another ridiculous layer to this already ridiculous situation:

    "This is all about racial politics. I'm a white lady. I'm an easy target."

Perhaps Click thought this was a better excuse to offer up instead of her initial defense which stated she called for "muscle" in case the student journalist was carrying a gun, as The Washington Examiner noted.

In any event, Click has been on the defensive since her charges of third-degree assault and eventual firing. She tells the Chronicle that she was at the Black Lives Matter protests to simply "protect black students" but has "taken the fall" even though she wasn't there in an official capacity:

    "I’m not a superhero. I wasn’t in charge. When it got out of control, I was the one held accountable.

    "I believed at some point, somebody would care about the truth of what I was doing."

Click recently wrote in a Washington Post op-ed:

    "I do not understand the widespread impulse to shame those whose best intentions unfortunately result in imperfect actions. What would our world be like if no one ever took a chance?"

So, when speaking to the Chronicle, Click tried to finally set the record straight by correcting what she considered to be misrepresentative headlines that often featured her now-infamous pointing finger:

    "Batsh** Crazy Professor Loses Temper With Student" [should've been] "Favorite Professor Fights to Support Black Students on Campus in Dangerous Situation"

And according to Click, there are plenty of people who would agree with that second "headline," especially those from a certain group:

    "Black people love me."

But it appears that Click's story has inspired others in academia to continue carrying the torch of  "stop filming me" and calling for backup. Here is video of a woman some are calling "Melissa Click 2.0." This is an American University media relations person calling for the police because she didn't like being filmed in a public area. This woman was ensuring there was plenty of "safe spaces" on campus for those protesting a speech by Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos:

FAKE HATE=> ‘Racist’ Noose Drawing Leads to Two Black Students

Call off the race hustlers…
Authorities decided not to press charges after their hate crime investigation led to two black students.

(http://16004-presscdn-0-50.pagely.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/fake-hate-board--575x1023.jpg)

The n***er hangman was drawn by two black girls.
EAG News reported:

    When Salisbury University police discovered that someone drew a stick figure hung by a noose on the school library’s whiteboard, they launched a hate crime investigation.

    But after realizing it was two black students who drew the picture – which showed the hangman crying, included the N-word with an arrow pointed at the stick figure, as well as the message #whitepower –  they decided not to press criminal charges, The Delmarva Daily Times reports.

    English Associate Professor James King told The SU Flyer that the school’s investigation identified the students responsible for the racist drawing, which was originally discovered April 10.

    “I confirm two students have been identified,” he said, “and are both African American.”
imagine that, and no media report

Ten Times Progressive Racists Staged Hate Crimes
Driving the narrative one race hoax at a time.

I n a post-Black Lives Matter America, where anyone white is inherently privileged and therefore racist, hate crimes are on the rise. But in reality, the racially charged movement is responsible for much of the increase. Their secret crimes are driving the narrative of a racist, white America one hoax at a time.

Of course, this is nothing new. Black Lives Matter is simply carrying the torch for those that came before them, like Al Sharpton, who is well known for perpetrating his own hate crime hoaxes. That's how he has made his career. Just remember Sharpton's defense of black teenager Tawana Brawley, who wrongly accused white officers of ****. Or more recently, his backing of the black prostitute/stripper who falsely accused three white Duke University lacrosse players of ****. That woman is now serving time after fatally stabbing her boyfriend. Isn't it curious how Sharpton always sides with the actual criminal?

But that is the same spirit behind these race hoaxes and so we at TruthRevolt believe it's important to expose the charade. Below are at least 10 instances of the more egregious race hoaxes over the last few years. It should be no surprise that most of these occurred on college campuses.


1. Stick Figure Racism on College Campuses   

Last month at Salisbury University in Maryland, a drawing of a hanged stick figure was found on a dry-erase board in the library. The word "****" and the hashtag "#WhitePower" were added for extra effect. The university quickly jumped into action to denounce this act of intolerance and launched an investigation, which then discovered that black students were responsible for the drawing.

Similarly in 2013, a hate crime was reported at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York when a student from the school's Bias Incident Response Team reported finding "F*** N*ggers" spray painted on student residences. Turns out it was the same student on the Bias Incident Response Team who reported it.


2. Black Lives Matter and Bomb Threats

In December of 2015, Kayla-Simone McKelvey, a black alumna of Kean University in New Jersey, attended a Black Lives Matter protest at her alma mater but apparently things were just too peaceful for her, so she ducked out midway through to shake things up a bit. She used the library's computer to create an anonymous racist Twitter account in order to send out a bomb threat and a shooting threat: "i will kill every black male and female at kean university," it read. She returned to the rally and started spreading the Twitter message among the crowd and through her personal Twitter page. The university condemned her actions saying, "We wholeheartedly respect and support activism, however, no cause or issue gives anyone the right to threaten the safety of others." As a student, McKelvey also made up a racism claim against the student organization and a professor.

3. Profiting from Fake Racism

In 2014, a black waitress at a Tennessee Red Lobster restaurant accused her white take-out customer of writing "****" on the total line of the bill. She posted a photo of it to Facebook and said: "This is what I got as a tip last night...so happy to live in the proud southern states...God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee.&
