Why Blacks Support The Trayvon Martin Case?

What is it about the Trayvon Martin case that a lot of people just don’t get?  I was reading a news story about an old white man who was beaten by a group of 6 black boys after saying to them…Remember Trayvon Martin.  And the 6 black youths were arrested and are now in jail awaiting trial.

But, yet people continuously want to point out Al Sharpton’s involvement with the Tawana Brawley fiasco or the Duke LaCrosse case.  As if these two incidents are the quintessential equivalents of the Trayvon Martin case.  Or somehow because a black person made false claims in these two cases, the case against Zimmerman is either false or somehow irrelevant.

And people are also making other comments about the 6 black youths vs. white man such as “if this were the other way around, it would be seen as a hate crime”  or “Were is the FBI? Jesse? Sharpton? and every one else? Rally to take place at the Toledo Police station Monday april 9th at noon to demand justice in this case please be there. Please email me at mikeXXXX@yahoo.com if you plan to attend!”

OK.  Who reading this is wondering to themselves at this very moment “what lack of justice are they speaking of that needs to be had in this case?”  What exactly is it that is causing a problem for Mike shown above who is looking to go to a rally for justice in a case?  It can’t be the fact that the alleged perpetrators are in jail, it can’t be that the wheels of justice are turning and quite quickly I might add.  So is the only thing that would spell justice for Mike, would be for black people to rally around this white man and denounce the actions of the 6 black youths?  Something he obviously has yet to do for Trayvon.

OK, Mike, for what it is worth…I think that it was horrible for those black kids to beat up this white man for whatever reasons they have.  I hope that when all the evidence is revealed that it doesn’t show that they felt threatened when the man said to them to remember Trayvon Martin.  Which he claimed was his way to, as he said; to show them we are all on the same side.

Because, unfortunately, if some white man said that to me, I would be fearful he was planning to make ME the next Trayvon Martin.  And I would interpret him to mean DEAD.  And thus might feel the need to protect myself from this could/would be Zimmerman knockoff.  So, I guess that could be an excuse for them.  Maybe, but we see there is no lack of excuses for Zimmerman as well.

I guess he (Mike) wants to see hate crime charges brought.  That is fine “if” that is what he wants.  But, at least he has solace in seeing the wheels of justice moving, the alleged perpetrators in jail and an actual investigation being done.  And all this being done WITHOUT the victim’s family going to extreme measures of rallying a public outrage to get the same justice.  Somehow this white victim just has the luxury of this justice automatically.

I would love for Mike there to show me the one case where a white person be it man, woman or child who was killed by a black man and that black man was allowed to go home WITH the murder weapon the same night as the killing, and no further questions asked by the police of that case.  And the case closed after 7 hours of investigation that did NOT include any forensic, DNA, witness statements nor any other form of evidence outside of the perpetrators lone statement?  I would LOVE for someone to dig that case up.

For anyone who is confused as to WHY black people are on board this case, it is because the crime was just set aside and no one wanted to look into it any further.  This man whether white or Hispanic or as he classified himself white Hispanic, man killed an innocent unarmed person without any investigation to corroborate his story was allowed to go free.  And the police had attempted to force the parents into accepting that the man killed their unarmed son in self-defense without a shred of evidence to back that statement up.

I don’t think that anyone would sit idly by and allow that to go unchallenged if that were their child or if this was some white kid walking in a predominantly black area and the black man were the alleged perpetrator.  That is why this is so raw for the black community.  This is NOT the first case of an unarmed black person shot dead at the hands of a person who did not get arrested, charged or eventually ruled innocent of any wrong doing.

And it is frankly unbelievable to me that anyone even needs to spell this out to them.  I can’t believe that it is so hard to fathom why black people are calling for justice.  Why is it so hard for some to identify with an obvious injustice no matter the race of the people?  If the people heard this travesty without hearing the race of the people would they have a hard time understanding the outrage then?

Is this a case of willful ignorance in order to justify a group mentality that has always deemed the black man a threat no matter what situation we see them in?  We have to keep black people under control no matter what the cost, situation or outcome of that situation.  A lot of white people thought Rodney King was in control even though he was surrounded by 7 police officers who were beating him with batons as he lie on the ground.  And a jury still believed that he could have stopped them at any moment.

A woman named Tarika Wilson was shot to death THROUGH her one year old baby and the cops who did it were deemed to have acted appropriated because of course this black woman holding a baby was still a threat to the police even though again unarmed.  How many times do we need to see this very crime perpetrated upon members of the black community while those from the predominant white community make statements that it was understandable based on the so called fact that the white/non-black person pulling the trigger was in fear of an unarmed black who supposedly had all the control.

We allow the dominant predominantly white community to cry that blacks are so scary it is understandable that they pull the trigger when facing a black person in any type situation even if the story sound as outlandish as Zimmerman’s tall tales.  When does the opposite occur in that blacks become so fearful of white people that we jump the gun in defense of ourselves against them?

Would this new reversal of fear be acceptable and we can then justify doing nothing at all or hearing about nothing being done and have so many members of society agree that it was justifiable to do nothing.  Would we ever then see the members of predominantly white society see a case where Zimmerman is black and Trayvon is white and then tell the outraged people to just have a look at whatever case is out there at the moment which shows a white person killing or harming a black person and ask them why they aren’t outraged over that as well; even when the cases are ridiculously different.

It won’t happen because somehow we are again under a group mentality that white people are NOT a monolith.  If one commits a crime, doesn’t mean I must fear them ALL.  Yet, blacks do not, and have never gotten that same consideration.  And in fact we deem blacks as negative actors even when the perpetrators are white.  We have so many Susan Smith’s, Bonnie Sweeten’s, Ashley Todd’s, Bethany Storro’s, Michael Daragjati’s, Mary Turcotte’s, Charles Stuart’s and Brian Wells’ out there to feed this very stereotype for the masses like crack addicts scurrying for the last rock of crack.

How do we stop this?  How do we back away from the precipice that we see ourselves on at this very moment?  We all need to take a step back and understand that it is beyond time to start seeing things through the eyes of our black citizens as we already do those of our predominantly white majority.

No Surprise A White Cop Shoots Black Cop

cop on cop shooting

Scenario we’ve seen over and over again white cop, dead black man.  This scenario only differs because the black man just so happens to be a fellow police officer himself.  And of course now an investigation needs to be done in order to see whether this shooting had to do with race.  Really?  You think that white police officers are out gunning down white people left and right?

We have ALL seen police footage of white men holding guns, threatening people and cops and still NOT be gunned down.  They try and reason with the man, give him every opportunity to be taken down without bloodshed.  But somehow when the person is black not only do they get 50 or so bullets, but they get them without so much as a 5 minute window between being seen and being shot.

Have these city and police officials ever watched the video of the white cop abusing what he thought was just some random black man walking where the white cop felt he shouldn’t be?  And didn’t this random black man turn out to be a cop himself?  Was this race related, what a joke!  If this was a white man chasing a white man, the white cop would have stopped everyone involved and questioned them to no end, getting down to the nitty gritty of the situation.

It wasn’t just a case of cops being overzealous and shooting who they thought was a perpetrator like people are already saying. The black cop named Edwards actually called the crime in to the police before chasing the suspect down the street.  So why didn’t Edwards just unload his gun into this suspect if this is just what cops do?  He did what he was supposed to do; he did what ALL cops should do with ALL people black, white or whatever.  He did his best to protect and serve, not shoot and kill.

We are constantly making excuses, constantly doing investigations and constantly finding these white cops innocent of any and all murder charges after needlessly gunning down some black man in the street.  Whether he is an innocent man on his way home from the grocery store holding a bag of groceries, a man out with friends at a bachelor party, a kid walking down the street holding a candy bar or a black cop trying to subdue a suspect, our black men are walking around with shoot me signs plastered all over them which is synonymous with black skin.

People can talk all day about how mistakes are made.  Why are the cops not making these innocent mistakes with white men and women?  Why are these types of mistakes always directed at the brown and black folks?  And don’t tell me that it is because minorities commit more crimes.  We have seen that this is NOT the case.  The people being shot haven’t even committed a crime let alone fit any stereotype of a person who has.  I guess unless you count being a black or brown minority person.

This has got to stop!  And people wonder why minorities don’t trust the police.  Why should we trust a gang of people who are constantly coming into our neighborhoods under the guise of helpers who then turn around and shoot our innocent neighbors.  And don’t talk about the suspected criminals who are shot.  Because the last time I checked you are innocent UNTIL proven guilty.  So when an unarmed man is gunned down only to be implicated in a crime makes no sense since the cops did NOT know he/she was guilty of anything.  Not to mention don’t we give people a fair trial before we sentence them to death.  Again this has got to stop!

A Thin Line Between Hero And Criminal

white.jpgjoehorn21.jpg

I find it interesting that you don’t see all the same people out supporting the White family in Suffolk county New York that were out in force supporting Mr. Horn down in Houston Texas. Hey didn’t they both shoot suspected criminals? Horn shot two people he suspected of robbery and White shot a guy that came with a group looking to commit assault and battery. Now the situation isn’t quite the same as in the White case the boys who came to the house were there specifically for the home owners and were using racial epithets as well as threats. So it is a wonder why people aren’t out in force to protest his arrest for his heroic deeds like they did that of Mr. Horn.

The prosecutor complained in the White case that he nor his family ever called the police they just took it upon themselves to go and confront the victim/perpetrator which was what made this a crime. Now in the Horn case he ran out amidst the complaints from the police operator not to and confronted two men after saying I am going to kill them. And yet this was understandable and no charges have been filed. Now I personally feel that people should call the police and do their best to avoid a confrontation unless the perpetrator (hopefully that is not you) initiates it. Then I believe that you have no choice but to defend yourself and your family.

I think Mr. Horn should be up on some sort of charges due to his behavior yet obviously that is not the case. Now what makes these two cases so different? It couldn’t be that one person chose to confront rather than wait for the police since that is the case with both men. It couldn’t be that one felt threatened since that is the basis for both men’s proclamation of innocence. Could it be that one man shot and said it was an accidental discharge? No both men have proclaimed that they didn’t shoot with intent to kill. There is one other issue at work. One man being white shot black assailants and one man being black shot a white assailant. Now why should this make a difference? It really shouldn’t, right.

Yet the black man is up on charges being called a murderer while the white one walks the streets a hero. Plenty of supporters rallied around the white man claiming what he had done by shooting those two men in the back were akin to heroism. Then the Black man shoots a white teen in the face and is chastised with people saying what he should have done instead. I am just wondering how many others out here see the hypocrisy in these cases. I don’t care whether you feel that a person has the right to shoot in self defense or not. I care that people aren’t protecting Mr. White like they were protecting Mr. Horn’s actions.

As I’m writing this I see that Mr. White was convicted and of course the family of the slain teen saying that it had absolutely nothing to do with race even though similar cases go the same way. Not to mention that I did a post showing that blacks get punished for the deaths of whites far more than the opposite. Also, the teens were using racial slurs as well as threatening death by lynching and the parents say that is not racial, then what IS racial to them. The hypocrisy goes so deep with this one so much that the jury that convicted this man had the nerve to cry as they read the verdict citing that they felt terrible and that this was a case that should never have been in their hands etc. Then why exactly did they convict the man if they felt he should not be on trial?

So the issue here is that if you are white and feel threatened or even if it is for a neighbor or how about a person across the street or town you will be able to defend yourself. And if those that you feel threatened by whether they were actually accosting you or not are black then feel free to do whatever is necessary to take the law into your own hands and shoot them, even in the back and you will be hailed as a hero. Now if you are black and are threatened even if you have it on tape and the person is in your front yard yelling racial epithets invoking an old fashioned lynching and wrestling with you and your gun, just call the police and hope that they get there before the actual lynching. If not I guess you should allow yourself to be lynched since you will lose your life anyway to prison if you do anything to try and stop it.

If that last paragraph sounded quite cynical was because it was meant to be a very facetious look at how these discrepancies are allowed to fester without the slightest hint of affecting anyone’s sensibilities. People are saying that Mr. Smith should have called the police and I agree he should. Yet what of the kid that was shot, shouldn’t he have called the cops as well if he felt that this black kid had done something that would compel him to go to his house threatening to lynch and kill his family. No one has ever brought that up before. It is plain to see that my statements in the previous paragraph are closer to being true. It was fine for the white teen and his friends and Mr. Horn to take matters into their hands not bother to call or listen to the police yet it was clearly a mistake for Mr. White to take matters into his hand and attempt to protect him and his family. So I guess this should be a lesson to all blacks that they better beware trying to defend themselves.

Vigilante Justice Or Homicide?

joehorn2.jpg

What’s worse burglary or murder? This is a question that is so easy to answer, yet if you listen to the supporters of 61 year old Joe Horn, you would think that burglary was the epitome of crimes. I am talking about the case of Joe Horn who shot two of three suspected burglars to death as they walked from his neighbor’s yard in Texas. He was talking with the 911 operator when he did it.

I am sure that people are reading this and saying “but Black Sentinel isn’t a crime a crime?” Of course and I don’t have any problems with that. The problems I do have is when someone decides that this is now the wild, wild west and breaks out a gun and starts shooting those he “suspects” are guilty of a crime. I am pretty darn sure that those three men “were” robbing Horn’s neighbor, yet whose responsibility is it to make sure that those involved in crime pay for them? I know that Horn believes that it was he that had the right.

This is a clear cut case of murder. I believe that it can be looked at as premeditated murder if you read or listen to his conversation with the 911 operator.(read the transcript here) The operator tells him, “Don’t go outside the house, you’re going to get yourself shot if you go outside with a gun. I don’t care what you think.” Horn then replies, “You wanna make a bet; I’m going to kill them.” Not to mention that when he was shooting you can hear on the phone call him stating “you’re dead” then the loud cracks of a gun firing. What about stating you are going to kill someone right before you do it isn’t considered premeditated murder?

People are saying things such as “if we start doling justice like Horn, crime would go down.” Did crime in the old west go down when you could shoot people justly in the streets? Nope, in fact crime was out of control, which is the reason we had to enact new laws in order to stop people from taking it upon themselves to dole out the justice. What would have stopped another neighbor from seeing Horn with his gun, not knowing exactly what “he” was doing, go get their gun and shoot him, thinking “he” was in the middle of committing a crime as well. This kind of action opens up a can of worms that once out is going to get out of hand very quickly.

He told the dispatcher that he saw them coming out the window and had to go, where he went over to the neighbor’s yard to confront the men. He claims that he didn’t expect to see them, yet he could see them and ran over there with his gun, is he kidding. He says that they came towards the front yard and he “had” to shoot. If he had stayed in the house like he was told he wouldn’t have “HAD” to shoot anyone. The point is he WANTED to shoot those men. He even stated a new law called the Castle Doctrine Bill as a means that would protect him “if he kills them.” Senator Jeff Wentworth says that the bill was not written to protect a person in this situation.

The senator says the bill is intended to defend someone that is defending themselves or their family etc. from someone breaking into their occupied home, car or business, not a neighbor’s home which was unoccupied at the time. Like the senator said, in HIS OWN HOME, not some house next door, down the street or how about across town. So this man hadn’t even read the law he was citing before he went off to do his little shooting spree. Now is this the type of person we want taking it upon themselves to give justice at will? I don’t feel safe with this moron out supposedly protecting me or anyone else.

I am seeing on the news paper Blogs a lot of people are saying that this man is a hero because these two guys were scumbags and deserved to be shot dead, as they would be out robbing someone else right now. They are also talking about how this guy Horn shouldn’t have to cower in his home while burglars are running amok. Now the problem I am having is yes these guys probably were scumbags, but when did being a scumbag deserve death? Also, Horn was not being robbed personally so he didn’t need to cower in his home, remember, he went out and confronted the alleged scumbags. Also, if they were in “HIS” home I probably wouldn’t have a problem with what happened.

This has turned into a race problem since the protestors seem to be minorities and the people who are supporting him are white. The supporters are also running around with the confederate flag, I even seen a confederate flag painted on the back of one person’s head. I think that the reason the minorities are painting this as a racist problem could be that the man probably would not have run out of his house to shoot these fellows if they were white. He likely would have asked them what they were doing. This is the discrepancy, he might have jumped the gun and these guys could have been a construction team doing work, he didn’t know and that is the problem with people deciding that they have the right to play police man.

Who Absolved America Of Reparations Debt?

reparations.gif

I have been reading a lot about civil rights people who tried to sue large companies that profited from the slave trade such as Aetna, CSX (railroad), New York Life, AIG, J.P. Morgan Chase Manhattan Bank and Fleet Boston, back in 2002. These companies have admitted to the income they made from the slave trade and some have even apologized. Yet they feel that they should not be held liable because in the words of Aetna, “We do not believe a court would permit a lawsuit over events which — however regrettable — occurred hundreds of years ago,” “These issues in no way reflect Aetna today.” And of course it’s obvious that the court didn’t allow the suit or you would have undoubtedly heard of the payout by now.

Yet Swiss banks paid out more than 8 billion dollars to Jews whose families were damaged financially by the holocaust. Most of the people that were maligned had been killed in the concentration camps, so it stands to reason that their families were paid on their behalf. Yad Vashem noted that a fund was set up by the Swiss, as was a Hungarian fund for compensation of Holocaust victims and their heirs. So we see that a horrible wrong was set right by the perpetrators of that wrong. No one says that the Jews should have forgotten about the holocaust or that it was in the past and they should just move on.

These are the words that are constantly told to blacks who would like to see someone pay for the wrongs that were committed by these and other companies upon our families. But, as Aetna says it is regrettable yet it was so long ago and this doesn’t in anyway reflect what is going on with Aetna now. How would people react to a person who murdered someone 20 years ago yet they haven’t committed any similar crimes, come back and says “hey I know that I committed murder however unfortunate, but it occurred about 20 years ago, so this crime in no way reflects the me of today.” Would that be good enough for them to now be exempt from paying for their crime? Of course not, I have seen people put in jail after 50 years of living without committing another crime.

I find that it is interesting that no one has a problem with a white race (the Jews) getting reparations, talking about anti Semitism and actually having holocaust museums, speeches etc. Yet it was so long ago shouldn’t they now be told to move on? I feel that the only time race issues need to be put in the past is when it deals with blacks or Native Americans. Sure people will say well look at the Jews they are doing well. Yes let’s look at how well they are doing. For one thing they immediately got away from their tormentor’s and had a state created for them using someone else’s land, as there is still debate over whether that was or was not theirs to begin with. They were paid reparations so they had something to start over with. They are receiving a large stipend from the United States to continue living well.

So I don’t think that blacks and Jews are even comparable in their situations. I think that if right after slavery was over blacks had been given their own state away from our tormentor’s and reparations we might have had a fighting chance. Yet the Jews in Israel never had to endure Jim Crow, the KKK or discrimination on such a large scale as we see in America with blacks from whites. They had troubles don’t get me wrong. Yet they are in a better spot than most blacks at this time even counting terrorism, since most blacks are living with our own terrorism from overzealous cops who shoot blacks so many times blaming it on contagious shooting. Other forms of terrorism like racial profiling, police violence, racism in our daily lives from work to the grocery store.

Where does this leave us? Well the government of the United States promised the black community reparations of 40 acres and a mule. They have reneged on a debt, so the debt is still owed. I understand that people feel that they had nothing to do with slavery so should not be punished. If you leave a debt unpaid and you have no life insurance, the company will not just say oh well the debtor is gone so we don’t get paid. That company will make sure to get the money from your estate or your family. So why should this debt be any different? Is it because the debt is owed to blacks for their forefathers who have a bill outstanding with the United States? Yet here are all these people constantly talking about fiscal responsibility and how we as a people need to be responsible and repay our debts. Maybe what I am taking from the governments non payment of this debt is that it isn’t really so important to pay back debts especially if I don’t care about the people I owe a debt to.

So sorry AT&T I don’t care much for your company or any of your employees and others receiving your services, so I guess you can just eat my bill, thanks. Now I am sure everyone reading this will think that I need to pay AT&T as they have given me a service three years ago and sent me a bill for closing a cell phone account. Running up that bill was unfortunate and regrettable yet it occurred over three years ago and it in no way reflects who I am as a person right now. I would never run up a cell phone bill now. So how come this can’t work for me? What would happen if everyone decided that the bills they owe no matter how old no longer reflect who they are as a person right now, should they be exempt from paying them back? I bet the government would have a little something to say about that and probably bring back jailing debtors.

So unfortunately I don’t have any hopes of my forefather’s debt ever being repaid. I believe that this if nothing else shows the disdain that America feels for its black population. I am sure that most people feel that America’s support for the holocaust heirs getting retribution and reparations was completely justified. Yet it would be fiscally irresponsible and much too expensive to force companies and even the government who were all involved to pay a back debt to the black heirs of the American slavery holocaust even though we felt it was responsible to see that the Japanese got repaid for being forced into internment camps. Not to mention it is fiscally responsible to enter into a never ending war spending billions upon billions of dollars and it isn’t even helping us as a people. The irresponsibility of this government and its population is ridiculous to say the least.  Unless the debt of reparations payments the government owes has been absolved by ALL blacks, then this debt is still outstanding and the interest is adding up tremendously.

Shoot Him He Has A Hair Brush!

 

hairbrush-gun.jpg

An eighteen year old young black man was killed today it seems he was carrying a dangerous and deadly hair brush. That’s right you heard it a hairbrush. It seems the cops started their well known contagious shooting again for a hairbrush that they mistook for a gun. I know whenever I see people on the street with hairbrushes I drop and take cover lest the stray bullets get me. Seriously though, how many of our black youth and men need to die due to overzealous cops and their bad eyesight?

The young man’s mother called the cops due to a family disagreement in which the boy brandished a gun. The 911 operator says she heard the boy claim he had a gun. When the cops showed up the boy had come out of a first floor window. At that point according to the police he didn’t stop moving and they opened fire once they saw he was carrying a dark object under his shirt. Huh? How did they see it was a dark object if it was under his shirt? Anyway this is the reason they felt they needed to open fire on him shooting him about twenty times. Whatever happened to one or two shots then find out if more is necessary.

I can just hear the people with a white mindset having now, hey these things happen, if he hadn’t have been fighting with his family, he wouldn’t have been shot. Also, it wasn’t a racist shooting because (you fill in whatever pathetic tag line used to explain away racism here). Unfortunately, this type of “accidental shooting” doesn’t seem to happen to white men or most other nationalities for that matter. How many men other than black men have things in their hands when the cops show up to a home, I am sure plenty. How about when a cop stops a man that isn’t black do any of them pull out there wallets, yep I bet they do. Yet somehow the greeting of 20 to 50 bullets is only doled out when these encounters happen with black men.

The police are saying that the young man had a history of mental illness and they think that the mother had been trying to get him committed earlier that day. And this is an excuse how? Oh, maybe he was so crazy that “HE” thought he was carrying a gun, so the cops played along and commenced in shooting him as if it “WERE” real. This whole issue of mental illness is beside the point and just another tactic to try and skirt the issue. The issue is, the boy had NO gun and according to plenty of witnesses dropped the brush before the shooting started. They claim that as soon as the boy dropped the brush the cops started shooting him up.

Yet after they shot him twenty or so times they ran over and put their knees in his back, handcuffed him and threw him in the back of the squad car. I guess he was still a danger even if he was full of lead by then. Yet, I would love to know when this type of incident happens to white men and if it did wouldn’t some lawmaker get all riled up and put an immediate stop to the madness. But, since it isn’t white males but black ones nobody gives a damn and thus the killing continues amidst a gaggle of excuses. Then the news will turn around and tell me I should be sad and care when a cop gets shot.

The propaganda tells us that it is a travesty when a person shoots a cop and we should learn about their family and their great service to the community. Whose communities, obviously not the black one, for all I know these cops that are getting shot are the same ones who unload on blacks carrying brushes, wallets and candy bars. The news doesn’t find out this information, but they do find out that the black male/female being shot or tasered or punched and pepper sprayed had a history of mental illness, criminality, or whatever they deem pertinent to showing that they deserved the mistreatment given to them by the cops.

Where the hell is Bill Cosby, he has been in Detroit and the like telling the black community there that they should be cooperating with the police to catch criminals. Well now where is Bill Cosby or any of the other big talkers who always have something bad to say about or to the black community? What do they have to say to the New York police department? Of course, we will never hear a peep out of these folks since it isn’t a problem to kill blacks on a whim. None of them cares unless they can be pointing their finger at blacks at it plays better for the white media.

Sextra Credit Becomes Deadly

ht_kelsey_071031_ms.jpg

The report out today is that there are some 2,570 cases that were reported over a 5 year span. And according to ABC news about 10 percent of all children boys and girls, in kindergarten through 11th grade have reported receiving some sort of sexual harassment by an adult while in school. About 7 percent of those cases involved physical abuse, said Charol Shakeshaft, an education professor at Hofstra University and author of a congressionally mandated study on teacher misconduct for the Department of Education.Just think of the amounts that are not reported. Now we have another teacher running off with a 13 year old boy. And finally a death comes from a teacher’s sextra credit, where the teacher’s husband shot to death the teen student that his wife was molesting. This poor boy was victimized twice, once by the teacher then by her husband. When are we going to get tough on these perverts who are running into the teaching profession?

abc_gma_teacher_070318_sp.jpg

The way we are handling these teachers is akin to how the Catholic Church handled the hordes of perverted men who ran to join the priesthood and thus began the molestation scandals there. Mary Kay Letourneau convicted child rapist recently did an interview saying that she understood why these teachers are running away. She said that instead of allowing her to be separated from her children, she bore with her then 12 year old lover; she would have run off as well. The sentences are slim to none for these perverted teachers so that it is a no brainer as to why others come up the ranks and do the same thing. Schools at this point seem to be a haven for pedophiles. There are so many cases that it should be looked at like a serious epidemic in the school system. They can start calling the schools systems motto no child left un-sexed. Maybe the schools don’t want to take the time to pay attention to what these teachers are doing or maybe they are choosing to overlook it so as not to have scandal raging around their schools. Whatever it is, the schools are woefully ill at protecting our children.

I am going to raise another view on this issue and that is the race of the perpetrators because I really think that if the majority of these teachers were Black, the powers that be would put a stop to this behavior immediately. We see from the numbers on crime that Blacks are far more likely to face jail time and harsher penalties for the very same crimes committed by Whites. So why hasn’t there been a tidy little catch phrase like Black on Black crime, how about we call it White teacher on student crime. Now each time a teacher does her or his thing with a student we can talk about how White teacher on student crime is out of control. Because, isn’t it really out of control? I am sure that a lot of people will read this part and feel that this is problematic. But I am looking at the fact that when something that America feels is a problem is being perpetrated by a few more Blacks than Whites it is worthy of a catch phrase. Such as with the baggy pants epidemic, aren’t White kids in White areas wearing their clothes the same way?

Until we start severely punishing these pedophiles, because that is what they are, this type of behavior will continue until it is down to our pre-school and kindergarten children. Instead of looking at it as a victimless crime when boys are molested by female teachers we should look at this problem the same way we see male teacher on female student crime. I for one will continue to bring this White teacher on student crime to the attention of all who wish to read about it. We need to start asking our law makers what exactly is it they plan to do to fix this problem. Until we see the disparity of crime in America no one will lift a finger to do anything about any problem involving a large number of White people victimizing others. If you would like more information on White crime statistics please refer to a couple of posts that I found highly informative, Read them and weep, Statistical rates are not real numbers, Raw numbers don’t lie , and Black crime statistics are hopelessly screwed, I mean skewed . All these posts talk about the ridiculousness of crime statistics how they hurt us all in America.

Baby Born With Blood Alcohol Level Of .17

tillthemorning.jpg

Are people getting dumber or am I just getting more jaded? Sherri J. Lohnstein, 34 of Foley, Missouri is back in court today to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter by drinking so much that her baby girl who she named Zreanna, was pronounced dead shortly after birth. The baby had a blood alcohol level of .17; Sherri had a blood alcohol level of .18 while the legal limit in Missouri is .08. Now this is a crying shame. I have no sympathy, mercy or whatever for people who make a choice to take drugs and alcohol thus killing their babies. I don’t think I even agree with the involuntary manslaughter charge, hell she knew full well that she should not be out getting extremely drunk while with child. I feel that this is just another in a long line of parents who are using stupidity as an excuse for the reasons they have injured or killed their children.

According to Dr. Mary Case, St. Charles County medical examiner, the determination for the baby’s death had been caused by acute intoxication. At the level that she and the baby were intoxicated she had to have been consuming some sort of hard liquor in which she drank at least 6 drinks over the course of about 3 to 4 hours according to the dui laws calculator. So this crazy mom was doing some serious drinking and I am sorry she knew full well that she was pregnant as she was in her third trimester of pregnancy. So she has no excuse and I don’t even want to hear the fact that she may have been an alcoholic etc. It doesn’t matter if you are an alcoholic get help or don’t get pregnant and if you do then get the help you need.

She posted bond and acting on her own, Lohnstein told Circuit Judge Nancy Schneider on Aug. 28 that she planned to plead guilty in exchange for a five-year prison sentence under an agreement with prosecutors. But the judge had the public defenders office to represent her even though they had previously withdrawn as counsel. She broke into tears in the court room, but I think that she should have been this thoughtful before she decided to go out and get hammered while pregnant. I hope they sincerely throw the book at this woman and hopefully she will be lesson to the next mother thinking about hitting the party scene. But, we all know that the next set of idiots coming behind her won’t learn a thing, because it seems that there is a never ending flow of dumb parents flocking in to do whatever it takes to make them ‘the dumbest’.

OJ Simpson What Else Can I Say

oj_simpson_narrowweb__300x4720.jpg

As I am watching CNN all I can think about is why OJ Simpson doesn’t just go hide in a cave somewhere. Maybe he can hide out with Bin Laden it seems no one can find him and that would be exactly what the doctor ordered. I am just sick to death of seeing, hearing and just knowing anything about this idiot. He is becoming as bumbling and stupid as Homer Simpson, I wonder if they are related. But, at least Homer has some redeeming qualities.

Well anyway the story goes that OJ somehow knew that these fellows were staying in the Palace Station Casino, who had some memorabilia of his that included his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture of the running back with J. Edgar Hoover. He went there with some guys he just met at a wedding reception cocktail party to go and take what he says was his. The room had a few collectors in it including Alfred Beardsley who had testified in OJ’s civil trial. Mr. Beardsley said that the story is pretty much as OJ tells it except there were guns in which Simpson said, “I didn’t see anybody with any guns.”

Is this guy for real? He knows damn well that after he didn’t get convicted of allegedly murdering his wife and waiter Ron Goldman that the public, police, the victims families and hell only knows who else would love to see this bumbling idiot in prison, jail or even dead. He just continues to put himself in the weirdest and stupidest situations I have ever seen. By the way he acts you would think he was a 15 year old teenager who doesn’t have much life experience and continues to make bad judgments. A friend says that he continues to want to be a player totally involved in the high life even though those days are done. There he is on all the news programs cheesing for all to see just like a big ole stupid looking joker. He has come out with a stupid book that people are saying sounds like a confession hidden behind a “what if.”

Now I don’t proclaim to know whether this idiot did any of the things that he is accused of from murder to robbery but I do know that his stupidity makes my skin crawl. I can only take stupidity in small doses which I get plenty of just from daily life. OJ is constantly giving me a stupid overload. All I can say is please OJ I need a break from your idiotic behavior, its bad enough that I still have Paris, Brittany, Nicole and Lindsay. For whatever reason it is easier for me to ignore those idiots’ antics but OJ, there is just something about that man that makes it hard to deal with. I think it’s the fact that he used the Black communities hope for him by pathetically pandering to our sense of racial solidarity during his trial and no sooner than he got off he went right back to the stupidity that got him in that situation.

So please OJ for the love of whatever just leave us all alone and keep to your self. Find a personal brain like Bush so that you won’t have to ever do any thinking which at this time doesn’t really seem to be a problem.

Larry Craig Lynched Twice Ben Stein Says

 

larrycraigstall.jpg

Ben Stein is in the news today making comments in support for Senator Craig. He states “Senator Craig has been the victim of a police lynching. A party that believes in individual rights should be rallying to his defense, not making him walk the plank.” Now I am a fully on board when someone is “really” being abused by the police, but come on, Lynching! That is so condescending to the thousands of Black men who were lynched in the name of racial hatred. I am appalled that Mr. Stein feels it is appropriate to use a term that was born out of horrible circumstances to describe something so freaking trivial. Next Ben will swear that the poor Senators who he feels are being unfairly judged by their obvious unsuitable behavior are now victims of some undercover gay senator holocaust or maybe genocide. Please Ben your killing me.

Then to say “a party that believes in individual rights… What fantasy land are Ben and Senator Craig living in that he was a victim of anything other than his closeted man lust. The Republican Party doesn’t care for anyone’s individual rights; well maybe that of big business, but if they did why then, do we have so many Black men such as Sean Bell being gun down by the police in a hail of fifty bullets. Now that is what I call a police lynching and where was the Republican Party to protect these victims who are the constituents under their supposed protection. What reason does the Republican Party as well as the Democrats get behind for these blatant cases of “real” lynching, well it was due to “contagious shooting,” yep that crap actually flies with them. Maybe this is why the government took so long to get around to doing something about the people who were suffering after hurricane Katrina. They were too busy trolling around in men’s restrooms and parks or underage chat rooms.

I don’t understand Ben Stein’s grievance he says “Here’s the deal: Senator Craig went into a men’s room at the Twin Cities airport. He entered a lavatory stall. He tapped his foot. He may or may not have reached his hand down under the lavatory partition to pick up a piece of paper or to make a signal. That’s it. That’s the whole thing. There was no sex act of any kind.” Well I don’t think that cops are supposed to engage in a sex act with the perpetrator in order to ascertain that he should be arrested for “soliciting” sex from the officer. I think it is the soliciting part that gives that fact away; which from what “my” dictionary says is to ask somebody for something or to offer sex for money. Now he did a combination of the two.

Ben also states that “If a police officer can wreck a man’s career over this trifle, then we might as well not have a Constitution or a Bill of Rights.” Uh, what? For one thing this statement would assume that the police officer knew that the man in the other stall was Senator Craig and he then put his Machiavellian plan into the works grabbing the Senator and so began to put the screws in. Then you also have to wonder if this cop was so gung ho on screwing up the man’s career why then didn’t he run this information right to the press after the arrest? Wouldn’t that do more to ruin his career than to sit back in the shadows doing his job (and I am no fan of cops) and let the newspaper come upon the information two months later.

Wow, that cop was really hell bent on getting Craig alright. Come on Ben, I mean when Sean Bell was killed the cop claims they made eye contact and that was enough for him to know that Sean knew that he was a cop. Now if that was this officers story that he looked at him and somehow knew that the Senator wanted sex, I would be right there with you guys, but he went through a whole ritual of how you approach someone for a gay tryst. I mean would you come to a guy’s rescue that saw a lady on the street, walks up to her and says hey pssst, then pulls out a twenty dollar bill and waives it at her. She pulls out a badge and waives it at him. Would Mr. Stein claim that this man should be left alone since there wasn’t any sexual contact? Now Ben is this a modern day lynching of that poor man who is probably going to lose his wife, family, job, a gob of money and maybe his freedom? I think not, she didn’t force him to solicit, so I guess he, you and definitely Senator Craig should do what you always want everyone else to do and take responsibility for your own actions.
