IT’S OFFICIAL! I’M EMBARRASSED FOR MY COUNTRY


Morgan Brittany as Katherine Katherine Wentworth Dallas TV series 1981-1987


Being a fan of the Big Screen and TV I have a little knowledge actors and actresses. Which brings me to an actress who has turned to Conservative activism. That actress is Morgan Brittany. I recall Ms. Brittany primarily from the television series Dallas – the original series in the 70s.
 
WND sent me an editorial attributed to Morgan Brittany in which she essentially excoriates President Barack Hussein Obama who taking America onto an embarrassing path of weakness.

Exclusive: Morgan Brittany reacts to jaw-dropping ‘dumbing down of America’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON – Every day I wake up and think, “What is this country going to face now? What crazy, upside-down event is in store for America today?” I keep thinking, it can’t get worse than yesterday, but it does!

Over the past few months we citizens of this great country have had to endure unbelievable, jaw-dropping decisions by our “so-called” leaders. Starting last summer, there was the Ferguson nightmare that was stoked by the ringmaster of this circus, Al Sharpton, who, along with Eric Holder, inserted themselves into a situation without knowing any details or evidence in the shooting of Michael Brown which ended up causing more violence, looting and destruction of private property. We were all privy to scenes provided by the media of people burning and turning over vehicles, stealing anything that they could get their hands on and rioting in the streets. Lovely.

As if that weren’t embarrassing enough, we had ISIS beheading an American citizen and releasing a graphic video of the act. Our illustrious commander in chief gave a statement that lasted less than five minutes. He delivered an annoyed reaction to the violence and rushed off so that he could get back to “yucking it up” on the golf course. We all just shook our heads at that one.

After more radical Islamic terror in the Middle East, Canada and here in the U.S., you would think the “powers that be” would put on their Sunday suits and start looking presidential, decisive and authoritative. But no, that just isn’t in their playbook. When France was rocked by a terror attack that killed the journalists of “Charlie Hebdo” and others, leaders from all around the globe gathered in solidarity to make a stand against radical Islam and terror. Yes, it might have been a strange gathering, and perhaps it was a photo op, but it still meant something to the people of these countries that their leaders made an effort to care.

What did our leader do? He blew it off. He embarrassed the United States by not showing up or even sending a significant representative. How did the White House respond when it came to their attention that they screwed up? Press Secretary Josh Earnest danced around the subject and made every excuse he could from; there wasn’t enough time, to, “well, I guess we should have sent someone of higher significance.” Ya think?

At that point, they should have just left it alone, but they dug themselves in deeper by sending Secretary of State John Kerry to Paris to give President Hollande and the French people a “big hug.” That was followed by James Taylor serenading them with a rendition of “You’ve Got a Friend.” Oh please. Upon hearing that, I was looking for the nearest rock to crawl under.

Last week, we were once again treated to another presidential malfunction. Hours after Obamas State of the Union speech, the country of Yemen went into meltdown. This was one of the places that he had touted as a huge success story for us in the Middle East, and now it was being overrun by Shiite Houthi rebels who had succeeded in overthrowing one of the only friendly governments that we had in the region. The media ran footage of angry rebels shouting “Death to America!” and raising their weapons in defiance. Humiliating? I would say so.

With Yemen in tatters and ISIS and al-Qaida growing stronger by the day, Obama seemed oblivious to anything except his agenda. Instead of keeping the bad guys locked up, he opened the gates to Guantanamo and let out more terrorists to return to the battlefield – another stupid and embarrassing decision.

At this point, we are all thinking that someone in the White House has got to be noticing that this is not looking good for America and that the optics need to change. You would think that given the choice of meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu or doing interviews with YouTube sensation GloZell Green it would be a “no-brainer.”

As unbelievable as it seems, Obama decided to disrespect the prime minister when he visits to speak with Congress and not accept a meeting, yet he had a one on one sit down with Ms. Green. She may be a YouTube sensation with millions of viewers watching her bathe in Froot Loops, with her green lipstick, but really? This is where we are when we think of the president of the United States?! I can’t imagine what the leaders around the world are thinking when they see this.

This display is just more of the dumbing down of America. It is playing to the lowest common denominator. Instead of encouraging excellence and honoring the best that we can be, we are showing the world how stupid and embarrassing we can be. We are elevating and rewarding bad behavior and demonizing and tearing down heroes like Chris Kyle. Unbelievable.

Oh, and one last thing. The media really need to get their priorities straight. Yemen, ISIS and al-Qaida are on fire, Iran is inches away from getting nukes, Cuba is now our “bestie,” but the media are spending all of its time on Tom Brady’s deflated balls.

Lord, save me. Please.

Grand Jury Probable Cause Evidence


Eric Garner killing July 2014
Michael Brown strongarm robbery 2

Political activist David Horowitz (Pro-Israel & Conservative) of the Freedom Center sent a fundraising email with the Ferguson riots and violence as the hook. Any Pro-Israel/Conservative organization supporting Israel’s right to exist and the core principles that have made America an exceptional nation is worthy of support. BUT it is the fundraising hook that you need to give some attention to in this case.
 
The Horowitz email sends a Youtube video of Bill Whittle of Freedom Center sponsored Truth Revolt editorializing on Obama Administration race baiting and the hypocrisy of the Ferguson Black Community (lump in misinformed Black Communities nationwide) committing acts of violence and looting in the name of an eighteen year old Black teenager the size of Goliath.
 
 
Published: Aug 20, 2014
 
Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it?
 
The hypocrisy is glaring evident when the violence and looting is supposed to honor a gigantic kid who strong arm robs a convenience store of a handful of cigars. This is soon followed by eighteen year old Michael Brown antagonizing a police officer for refusing to get out of the middle of the street who attempted to escort Brown to the backseat of his squad car while undoubtedly the intention of finding out about wants and warrants. Brown while in the backseat pulled Officer Wilson violently into the car pummeling him to the head and made an attempt to grab Wilson’s firearm. In escaping Brown’s assault Wilson managed to fall out of the car. Brown at first took the opportunity to flee. Wilson drew his weapon telling Brown to stop.
 
AND THIS IS WHERE MYTHOLOGICAL LIE BEGINS
 
Brown rather than stopping and surrendering with hands up, Brown gave a Goliath bull rush toward Wilson. Already pummeled by Brown, Wilson shoots to slow Brown down. The first wounds have little effect on bull rushing Brown. Wilson discharged his weapon aiming at Brown’s head ending the Goliath offensive.
 
No I understand the Black Community guffawing Wilson’s account over some of the police-hater accounts of Brown being shot with his hands in the air surrendering. I am certain there are bad cops out there. But there are good cops – Black, White, Hispanic, etc. – who understand the statistics of Black crime and thus police patrol with a racial profiling attitude of assuming crime before going to trial.
 
Let’s be honest – in the process of protecting and serving, a police officer needs racial profiling as a tool because it enables not only for the safety of the community patrolling but makes sure the outnumbered police officer (or officers) have a self-preservation moment in patrolling. Leftists hate this reality. The Black Community hates this reality. AND when racial profiling is abused as a form of police harassment, Conservatives question the validity of this reality.
 
Ferguson is an example that police enforcement needs to have some kind of reform that uses racial profiling on a qualified basis. If there is a robbery or an assault in an area and especially if it is reported that the perpetrator or perpetrators fits the description of a non-White person (face it, Blacks are not the only racially profiled people), racial profiling a person walking or driving is an essential tool.
 
HOWEVER, in the process of patrolling and a racial profile spot check occurs without any reported alert probable cause, is an intrusion of viewing all citizens equally under the law. Placing cameras on squad cars and police officers is one way to make sure police officers use proper policing techniques and protects the police from false accusations.
 
Eric Garner Killed by Daniel Pantaleo

Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it?
 
In a case that sparked days of protest and calls for reform of the New York Police Department, a grand jury has decided not to indict an officer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Officer Daniel Pantaleo will not face criminal charges in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, who died July 17 while being arrested outside a Staten Island convenience store for allegedly selling loose cigarettes, or “loosies.”

The lawyer for the Garner family, Jonathan Moore, said that he was “absolutely astonished” in an interview with NY1.

The case inspired outrage over officers’ behavior, especially when it comes to the apparent use of a long-prohibited chokehold.

PIX11’s continuing coverage of Eric Garner’s in-custody death
Shortly after the fatal encounter, Pantaleo was stripped of his gun and badge and put on modified duty. Four EMS workers who responded to the scene but apparently did not try to resuscitate Garner were suspended without pay.

Called “barbaric” by his family, Garner’s arrest was caught on camera by an onlooker. That widely watched READ THE REST

 
An example the use of cameras provides an example of at the very least too much force is in the case of a group of Officers are examining a gigantic Black that resisted arrest, but in the act of subduing the man the police officer utilized an against the rules chokehold that resulted in the death of the Black man. What makes the death of the Black man more heinous is while being subdued he was saying, “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.”
 
NOW this is an injustice because the police officer was not charged and actually had a Grand Jury did not indict. THAT IS CRAZY!
 
Granted Eric Garner was a huge 400 pound man. His crime: selling individual loose cigarettes black-market style. Garner resisted arrest which justifies the amount of police officers trying to subdue him. BUT the chokehold is against NYPD rules due to the very issue of accidental death in the act of subduing resistance to arrest. Thus when Daniel Pantaleo began his illegal chokehold coupled with Garner’s dying breath of “I can’t breathe,” a crime was committed by Officer Pantaleo.
 
The Grand Jury decision not to indict is ridiculous under the preponderance of evidence the unrestrained force at least criminal negligence and at worst just downright murder.
 
While all states have provisions in their laws that allow for grand juries, roughly half of the states don’t use them. Courts often use preliminary hearings prior to criminal trials, instead of grand juries, which are adversarial in nature. As with grand juries, preliminary hearings are meant to determine whether there is enough evidence, or probable cause, to indict a criminal suspect. (How Does a Grand Jury Work? FindLaw)

From time to time Burr Deming sends me a post from his blog. This is a response to the email with link to his podcast and a link to the podcast transcript.

 

Burr I actually posted my own sentiments on the Ferguson-Wilson-Brown shooting incident prior to reading the transcript (“Ferguson – Lamestream Media, Race Baiters and a Closer Truth”). Sorry about that. I apologize because after listening to the podcast then reading the transcript, my post might sound like a response to your post. It was not a response, but I believe it could have been.

 

Below I am adding some comments by paragraph in blue to your 8/18/14 post. BTW Burr how do you do that robot voice? Does it sound like that on the radio as well?

Death, Protest, and Guilt in Ferguson

By Burr Deming on Aug 18, 2014 |

FU – FairAndUNbalanced

Transcript:

 

When Scottie McCown died ten years ago, it did not cause a nationwide stir. Maryland paid little notice. There was not much attention paid in Baltimore, where Officer McCown had shot and permanently disabled a local teenager decades before.

 

The Baltimore protests in 1980 paralleled those we see today here in Missouri to one more deadly incident. Young black teenagers in America seem to continue as routine casualties. So it was in Baltimore three decades ago.

 

Riots had been massive in Miami at the acquittal of police officers who had beaten to death a motorcyclist after an eight minute chase. The cyclist was driving on a suspended license and likely had been trying to escape a fine.

 

I was living in the Baltimore area at the time. Like most area residents, I paid little attention to details. A 17 year old black kid had gone into a sub shop with a friend. He was unarmed. As he stood before the counter, he was shot in the back three times by a Baltimore city police detective.

 

There were raucous press events. Non-violent protests provided an outlet for rage. Baltimore authorities were mindful of the violence in Miami. They wanted to avoid similar racial conflict in Baltimore. A brief hearing was held. Officer McCown was fired, later sued for a million dollars by the young man and his parents.

 

Civil hearings quoted the conclusions of the lightning fast police review hearing. The officer had options:

 

He did not “identify himself as a Police Officer to the owner or employee of the Pizza shop and request they telephone for a back-up unit” or “accost the suspects, identify himself as a Police Officer, and conduct a stop and frisk.” Finally, “there existed insufficient facts and circumstances to warrant reasonable belief of imminent danger to himself.”

 

The difference McCown shooting of 17 year old Ja-Wan McGee and Darren Wilson shooting 18 year Michael Brown is that Wilson was clearly a police officer exiting his squad car because Michael Brown with his imposing size was belligerently walking down the middle of the street in defiance of city ordinance and Officer Wilson enforcing the rule of law by telling a the big man to go to the curb. It is my understanding that although Wilson was alerted a small time yet strong-armed robbery took place but at the time of telling Brown to get to the curb had no idea he was connected to the robbery. However I am certain I can surmise that Brown figured he was being accosted by the local police for stealing a box of cigars without paying.

 

Because of the Ferguson Police Department reputation for stepping over the line of law enforcement with Ferguson Black citizens, it is probably an assumption of Brown himself would be arrested and roughed up in the privacy of the police station. And since Brown was six-foot four-inches tall with the imposing presence of a football Defensive End, felt he could take on Officer Wilson before other Ferguson police officers came to assist in an arrest.

 

This is me not believing Black Community eyewitnesses and believing what has become public knowledge of the entrance wounds being the front part of Brown’s body. Ergo when Wilson proceeded to place Brown in the squad car to execute the standard procedure of checking on wants and warrants, Brown went to action. He grabbed Officer Wilson and pulled inside the squad car and began thrashing the officer’s head with his probable size comparable fists. Whether Wilson’s eye socket was actually broken or not is irrelevant, after the shooting Wilson went to the hospital for x-rays to see how bad the damage was to his face. This is indication that Wilson was pummeled enough that when Wilson broke free from the punishing grasp of Brown he had pulled Department weapon as much as for an enforcer as for self-protection. Rather than standing down Brown of his own free will charged Officer Wilson. Now I’m not a trained police officer, but if I was in a situation in which I escaped a pummeling and had a gun at my grasp, I would fire a barrage of bullets myself. Wilson’s mistake as a trained officer is that six bullets just might have been overkill.

 

I was not there though. Ferguson Police and perhaps even Officer Wilson had been involved in probable civil rights violations against the Black Community. Perhaps the first shot did not stop the Brown charge. So Wilson let fly five more rounds to make sure the youthful giant’s charging progress definitely ended. Perhaps a definite disabling of a huge male charge would make a probable hostile Black crowd think twice before engaging in mob action against Wilson and oncoming police officers. If the latter is true it would be the fault of the abuse of the Ferguson Police Department and a good reason for a civil suit as in class action rather than just Brown family vs. City of Ferguson.

 

Mitigating details were unimportant at the time. Nobody, myself included, had time for mitigation. An unarmed kid would never walk again. What could justify that?

 

A decade later, author David Simon briefly reviewed the case.

 

In the area of Erdman Street where the shooting occurred, robberies had been committed in which a small chrome pistol had been used. The detective had noticed a couple of young men in a familiar pattern, looking through the storefront window. The pattern was repeated several times. Were they casing the place? Only when most customers had left did they enter.

 

I think the situation in Ferguson was more of racial hostility than the prevention of a repeat crime that included a weapon. Again this is the fault of the governing structure of the city of Ferguson that encourage White favoritism and Black criminal profiling beyond the scope of the majority Black Community.

 

Detective McCown readied his own revolver, just in case. As one of the young men suddenly faced the shop owner, McCown saw the metallic flash. The shop owner had not yet noticed the mortal danger facing him. The detective fired three times, screamed at the accomplice to stand still, and yelled at the shop owner to call police emergency.

 

McCown was not a uniformed Officer. I understand he was a plainclothes Detective. I suspect a police Detective has a higher standard of training and accountability than a uniform Officer. AND YET he shot his weapon first and then scrutinized the situation. Shooting the Black seventeen year old without actually seeing a weapon is quite inexcusable. When McCown saw the glint of a metallic flash he should have unholstered his weapon as a precaution due the crime spree in that area of Baltimore but before discharging his weapon it was McCown’s responsibility to actually observe a weapon. After seeing a metallic lighter McCown could have gone whoops, thought I saw a chrome gun like in the robbery down the street and then holster his weapon.

 

Then he saw the metallic flash had been from a lighter. There had been no robbery, no accomplice, no mortal danger.

 

Simon makes the case that we, members of the public, are trapped in a fictional world in which no bad shooting can happen at the hands of a good police officer. Ambiguity is seldom a reality after the fact. But a lack of certainty is a fact of life in each professional moment of a fallible human. What Simon calls “the myth of perfection” haunts every incident.

 

It doesn’t matter that a shouted warning concedes every advantage to the gunman, that death can come in the time it takes for a cop to identify himself or demand that a suspect relinquish a weapon. It doesn’t matter that in a confrontation of little more than a second or two, a cop is lucky if he can hit center mass from a distance of twenty feet, much less target extremities or shoot a weapon from a suspect’s hand. And it doesn’t matter whether a cop is an honorable man, whether he truly believes he is in danger, whether the shooting of a black suspect sickens him no less than if the man were white.

 

– David Simon, Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, 1991

 

The young man in Baltimore did not deserve to be shot. He did not deserve a life of partial paralysis. The officer did not deserve the public censure that became a part of his life.

 

A few miles from my home here in Missouri, 34 years later, a new police shooting has aroused community anger. Local resident Michael Brown has been killed on a residential street in Ferguson. He had just graduated from High School.

 

Just because Brown graduated from High School recently doesn’t mean he was not a thug. The confirmed video of him strong-arming the theft of cigars from a convenience store proves this. Does the public just look the other way because a teen is a thieving bully just because he is still viewed by adults as a kid at eighteen? That is more evidence of Liberal permissiveness for poor misunderstood social circumstances rather than the enforcement of social mores to prevent the entrenchment of a peer pressure disrespect for society and adults in general.

 

The demands for justice, to the extent that the demands are specific to this case, are premature. Justice without process is not justice. Judgment that comes before evidence is not justice.

 

Like I said enforcing social mores will a long way toward crafting a better society. The problem in this day of a polarized political spectrum, who decides what a better society is?  

 

My friend, liberal Michael J. Scott, is a former police officer. He makes a brief point: “… we don’t yet have the facts so I’m going to reserve judgement. [sic]”

 

This is an excellent point.

 

As those facts slowly dribble out, it has become difficult to compose a case that would justify the shooting. Was there an assault on the officer? Was Michael Brown sufficiently provoked by insult – Get the f*** out of the street – to react with violence? Did the young man decide that apprehension for an earlier forceful robbery was worth attacking a uniformed officer? Was there some other perceived threat?

 

Certainly this should not be socially unacceptable! However, it is symptomatic of both the liberalization of social mores, police unprofessionalism and abusing civil rights based on racist attitudes.

 

What is known so far obstructs the search for a reasonable explanation. The number of shots fired, the distances involved, the accounts of a young man with arms raised in surrender, all join to strain the imagination. The slow motion revelation of those details has not helped. The absence of evidence has itself become evidence.

 

Actually the exploitation of the lack of public evidence by a Left oriented media and race bating has been more of a problem for stoking the fires of rioting and looting. The absence of official public evidence is fairly standard procedure in criminal investigations especially when the media focuses on the crime. Too much info could damage a jury pool for both prosecution and defense in the civil rights of the accused. If it is determined there is sufficient evidence for a trial of a crime, it is better for a jury to hear and see the evidence at trial than before the jury is selected. If a trial option is not exercised then the public has the right to become apprised. Not releasing evidence after an investigation is concluded smacks of cover-up and robs the offended party or parties of the right of a civil case to review if a decision to not prosecute a crime was actually warranted.

 

And so there has been outrage. The initial reaction by police authorities to community anger leaves little to the imagination. The lack of distinction between legitimate protests on one hand, and attacks on police, or destruction or looting on the other, has been beyond justification. The relentless march of military level force, the armament and equipment, the early disproportionate response did little to help.

 

Believe it or not I actually struggle with this view. Many of my fellow Conservatives – especially with a Libertarian slant – find the militarizing of police departments to handle civil unrest an unacceptable law enforcement plan. It has all the appearance of a government police state dictatorship. My problem is that even with all the military hardware the City and State law enforcement basically watched as indiscriminate looting of stores took place. There was such a lack of shame by looters video feeds of the looting were all over television news and the Internet. With all the military looting the use of military hardware became worthless in the protection of private property. I am surprised store owners didn’t go to their stores with guns and begin to shoot the looters themselves. Think of the Liberal outcry then when people began to exercise their Second Amendment right to protect property with deadly force. The Left Wing Media would frame looters as martyrs and property owners as out of control gun owners. America must confiscate all guns so the tragedy of shooting looters never happens again on American soil. My GOD! Talk about a police state making the populace defenseless.

 

These were not the decisions of individual police officers. Those in charge seem to have achieved a complete disconnect from the consequence of their actions. What are we to expect when protest is necessary and peaceful protest is made impossible?

 

You see I don’t understand this scenario. I am guessing the assumption that peaceful protesters became a rioting mob because of the presence of military hardware sounds a bit weak to me. I think it is a better guess that the exposure of military hardware by civil police was put in place more of because of the mutual hostility between the racial profiling Ferguson Police and the weary of Police abuse Black Community. Other than tear gas what kind of military-style lethal force was distributed by the police with military hardware? I suspect a SWAT situation uses tear gas without the presence of military hardware, right? As it turned out the police did nothing to protect property even with the big dollar taxpayer paid military toys.

 

Mercifully, authority seems to have shifted to more responsible command.

 

Separating the actions of authorities from the initial shooting is not an easy emotional leap. But it is a necessary leap. In the fullness of time, as evidence bleeds forth, the truth surrounding the death of young Michael Brown will unfold.

 

Official ineptitude should not be part of that evidence.

 

I don’t know. Perhaps “Official ineptitude” should be a part of that evidence in the process of how rioting and looting became acceptable under the watching eyes of a police presence.

Ferguson – Lamestream Media, Race Baiters and a Closer Truth


Darren Wilson - Receiving Commendation

Officer Darren Wilson Receiving Commendation

 

 

John R. Houk

© August 24, 2014

 

It is becoming increasingly clear the racism that currently exists in Ferguson Missouri is not so much from White policemen but from a crime infested element of Ferguson’s Black community. Oh yeah, I think it is more politically correct to say ‘African-American,’ sorry about that pc police.

 

Anyway, the Lamestream Media went directly to the so-called eyewitnesses for an account because the local police was erring on the side of caution due to the racial volatility of which they were already aware. On the other hand the Ferguson Police has a crummy civil rights record. Other than the demise of Michael Brown a fairly recent incident involving an arrest of Henry Davis occurred. The problem: the Ferguson Police arrested the wrong Henry Davis. Here is a description of what happened to the wrong Henry Davis:

 

The short version: the police beat up Davis, concussing him and causing him to bleed. A lot. Although they had to admit he wasn’t the man named in the warrant — the only reason he was picked up in the first place — he was criminally charged for . . . wait for it . . . getting blood on their uniforms. You ought to read Daly’s piece to get the full flavor of the case. (A Little Ferguson History; By Michael Lumer; Fourth and Fourteenth; 8/16/14)

 

And the perspective local justice corruption gets worse in the case of Henry Davis:

 

A quick check on Pacer reveals that Davis filed a civil lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri in August 2010. During the case, according to Daly, the officers, who deny the excessive force, actually denied that they were bled on, even after being confronted with the signed criminal complaint. It also appears that the district judge found this perjury too minor for a due process violation, which is bizarre. If the officers lied to prosecutors about the damage to their uniforms in order to initiate and maintain the prosecution, Davis ought to be able to proceed to trial on a fabricated evidence/due process claim. The court also decided that the concussion was not a severe enough injury to merit a trial, which is another facially ridiculous ruling. (Ibid.)

 

O yeah, I forgot to mention that Davis was Black. Thus it is quite evident the Black citizens of the city of Ferguson have little to zero faith in the local justice system.

 

And yet again, on the other hand, the conflicting accounts on just how Michael Brown was shot by police and the evidence pointing out the kid was an 18 year old thug, meant he should have been arrested. The Leftist retort that small time robbery (cigars from convenience store) is never an excuse for fatally shooting anyone let alone a person as young as 18 year old Michael Brown although he legally was an adult.

 

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, America’s total population is 299,736,465 (via InfoPlease). In this population breakdown 223,553,265 (72.4% of total) are White and 38,929,319 are Black (12.6% of total).

 

According to FBI 2011 homicide statistics there were 3172 White homicide victims by White perpetrators. Of those 3172 there were 2630 White perpetrators against White victims (or 1.76% of White population). But the ratio between perpetrator and victim among Whites is much larger, viz. 83%.

 

Black perpetrator homicides against White victims are in the numbers (448 – Black) and of course the total victims of Whites which again is 3172. This percentile ratio is 14%. It is my opinion the disparity is made vis-à-vis the high Black crime rate and the greater population among the White majority. The thing that seals this disparity is the Black on Black murder rate. The total number of Black victims of homicide was 2695 back in 2011. The number of perpetrators of Black committed homicides is 2,447. The Black on Black percentage is 91% according to the numbers supplied by the FBI.

 

When a small town policed department with a significant Black population looks at the statistics of the volatility of Black crime, police officers don’t really care on social explanations from either the Left or Right on how Black-American and crime seem to coexist in an alarming manner. AND when the police department is made up of largely White police officers that either show a propensity to use racist attitudes to dispense law enforcement among Black Communities there will be mutual distrust in the motives behind actions observed by White officers and Black residents.

 

It could be some time until the public receives the details that led to Darren Wilson shooting Michael Brown. Nonetheless the Lamestream Media were in unison to place on blame of police brutality straight on Officer Darren Wilson. Why? The reason is because Lamestream reporters descended on Ferguson to find some eyewitnesses because the Ferguson Police Department refused to release details while an ongoing investigation was occurring. Of the course the Black Community interpreted that standard procedure as a cover-up for yet another incident of police brutality that resulted in the death of a Black 18 year old recent High School graduate.

 

The so-called witnesses probably filled more with rumor and innuendo from cop-hating Black companions of Michael Brown either stretched the truth of what they allegedly saw or simply downright lied. After Zimmerman was found not guilty of a racist inspired murder of Trayvon Martin, the Press was more than willing to receive so-called eyewitness accounts that placed Wilson in a negative light and Brown in a positive angelic light. I suspect the Press assumption that Zimmerman was found not guilty back of the lack of actual eyewitnesses other than reviewers of 911 calls and the perceptions of people behind closed doors. Basically Zimmerman’s jury had to sift through Prosecutor and Defense mutual character assassinations to come to a verdict was either guilty or guilty without any reason of doubt. Regardless of the Lamestream Media convicting Zimmerman with words before a jury verdict, it was quite inevitable for a not guilty verdict under the rules of innocent or conviction according to the U.S. Constitution.

 

So when stories began to emerge that conflicted the Brown-murder eyewitnesses’ claim he was shot fleeing with his hands up in the air. The other chain of events reported is that Michael Brown was belligerently walking down the middle of the street refusing Wilson’s order to go to the curb which led to Wilson exiting his car to arrest Brown. As Wilson attempted to place Brown in the squad car Brown began to defiantly beat Wilson in the face after being pulled himself into car by Brown. The police account is Brown acted as if he was reaching for Wilson’s gun but Wilson manages to remove himself from Brown beating his face in. At which time Wilson upholstered his gun telling Brown to surrender. Rather than submitting Brown charged the already face beaten Wilson resulting in the gun being shot six times into the six-foot four-inches of Michael Brown’s body. Depending who read the fatal shot being in Brown’s neck or head.

 

Somebody is lying – either Brown fled arms raised as the Lamestream Media initially reported or Brown charged Wilson in defiance with the Officer’s gun being shot six times of an extremely violent (NOT GENTLE) giant who acted in a homicidal manner. Whichever story is correct convicts or exonerates Wilson no matter the Officer’s racial prejudice – if any.

 

It seems a Left-Right media fracas is emerging along the lines of whose story is the truth about how much physical harm that Darren Wilson received from Brown leading to Wilson shooting Brown.

 

Some initial digging by the Blogger Gateway Pundit reported that Wilson’s orbital (eye) socket was broken by Brown. CNN investigative reporting dismissed the Gateway Pundit story as false. Since the Ferguson incident has become international news British news sources have gotten involved in the investigative reporting for their readers. So it is ironic that the British Daily Mail makes an effort to summarize the Gateway Pundit vs. CNN reporting:

 

·         Officer Darren Wilson did not suffer a broken eye socket as a result of his deadly confrontation, according to latest reports

 

·         On Tuesday it was reported that he had suffered an ‘orbital blowout fracture’

 

·         The officer was taken to a hospital with a badly swollen face following the shooting on August 9, but x-rays came back negative for any serious injury

 

·         Earlier reports had claimed that the officer was almost knocked unconscious by Brown’s blows

 

·         Only six arrests were logged overnight in Ferguson on Thursday as the town witnessed a more peaceful night

 

Officer Darren Wilson did not suffer a broken eye socket as a result of his deadly confrontation with unarmed Ferguson, Missouri, teenager Michael Brown, according to latest reports.

 

In recent days, reports had emerged stating that Wilson, 28, was badly beaten and left with serious facial injuries following the fatal shooting in the St Louis suburb, including an eye socket fracture.

 

On Tuesday, The Gateway Pundit reported that the officer had suffered an ‘orbital blowout fracture’.


But CNN reported on Thursday that although the officer was taken to a hospital with a badly swollen face following the shooting on August 9, x-rays came back negative for any serious injury.

 

Earlier reports had claimed that the officer was almost knocked unconscious by Brown’s blows, according to the source.


A police source told Fox: ‘The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side. He was beaten very severely.’

 

The source continued: ‘They ignored him [Wilson] and the officer started to get out of the car to tell them to move. They shoved him right back in, that’s when Michael Brown leans in and starts beating Officer Wilson in the head and the face.’


A police source has confirmed to MailOnline that Wilson was taken to hospital and treated for facial injuries sustained during the Brown incident but would not elaborate on the severity or nature of those injuries.

 

Last week, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said Wilson had suffered swelling to the side of his face but gave few details of the injuries.

 

Wilson, a six-year veteran of the Ferguson force with a clean record, has not been arrested or charged with any crime.

 

He is on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation and is under 24-hour guard after death threats were aimed at him.

 

Wilson is ‘traumatized, scared for his life and his family’ along with being deeply concerned that a grand jury, which met for the first time on Wednesday, will make an example out of him, the source told Fox.


Daily Mail has more including photos and videos in this story (Police officer who shot Michael Brown did NOT suffer a broken eye socket but he did go to hospital with a swollen face after deadly altercation; By DAVID MCCORMACK; Mail Online; 9/21/14 17:26 EST – Updated 9/22/14 1:02 EST)

 

Gateway Pundit is sticking with their original story:

 

On Tuesday The Gateway Pundit reported 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.

 

 

Now this…
The Gateway Pundit confirmed from a third local source close to Wilson that Officer Darren Wilson did indeed suffer a broken eye socket.

 

 

This morning [i.e. 9/22/14] The Washington Post also reported that Officer Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket–

 

CNN really needs to be more responsible with such sensitive information. READ ENTIRETY (NOW THERE ARE FOUR SOURCES: Officer Darren Wilson Suffered Fractured Eye Socket; By Jim Hoft; Gateway Pundit; 9/22/14 9:17 AM)

 

And finally I am excerpting a One Citizen Speaking post that fairly well expresses my opinion on the shooting … so far. I say so far because like I said public data will not occur until the Ferguson Police or whoever ends up in charge of the investigation releases them. That might not happen until after a murder trial is imposed on Darren Wilson because after all – the Lamestream Media, professional race baiters and much of the Black Community are still calling for Darren Wilson blood.

 

Enough is enough!

 

I am tired of seeing the mainstream media feature black racists, agitators, communists, and self-serving race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson spouting nonsense that defies common sense and offends the sensibilities.

 

One, Michael Brown’s death was self-inflicted the moment he decided to challenge authority and present his 6’4” 292-pound body as an existential, in-your-face, threat to Officer Darren Wilson. There appears to be no intent on the part of the police officer to do anything except get two idiots who were walking down the middle of a street back on the curb.

 

Two, the outrage over the release of convenience store crime photos showing someone appearing to be Michael Brown in a strong-arm burglary of a convenience store in the proximity of the fatal encounter. Various sources have confirmed that it was Brown and his companion that took a box of cigars out of the convenience store without payment – and it became strong-arm burglary (rather than shoplifting) the minute he attempted to intimidate the clerk with his physical presence and put his hands on the clerk. This is relevant because the first things defense attorneys will demand is the police officer’s record including any use of force complaints – no matter how old. This is to establish a pattern and practice of using unjustified force.

 

Three, the police officer may not have known about the theft from the convenience store, so he was just hassling someone for “walking while black.” Not only were the two suspects walking down the middle of the street (an infraction), but they also refused the lawful orders of a police officer to “get out of the street.” But why this is a bogus issue is common sense. While the police officer may have not known – or possibly suspected — that a more serious crime had been committed, Michael Brown certainly was aware of his criminal acts, and that may have been motivation for his assault on the officer. Yes, there is little or no doubt – including medical treatment records – that the officer was injured during the altercation.

 

Four, the idea that “unarmed” equals innocent, defenseless, or incapable of causing great bodily injury, is an outright lie. Here is a recent case in Los Angeles when an “unarmed” domestic violence suspect assaulted an officer that resulted in grave bodily injury …

 

 

Five, that the mainstream media took the word of an unfiltered, unvetted thug who was there in the convenience store at the time of the strong-arm robbery over the presumption of innocence of a police officer until he was proven guilty or facts to the contrary surfaced was disgusting and un-American. This thug’s narrative that Michael Brown was shot in the back while trying to surrender appears to be suspect by the preliminary autopsy notes of noted forensic pathologist Michael Baden who noted that all of the shots appeared to come from the front.

 

 

Six, that Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder would attempt to enter a local police matter and spin the story for political advantage – places the officer at much greater risk of over-zealous prosecution and the conjuring-up of evidence that doesn’t exist or that may have alternative explanation. We have seen a number of Obamacons openly thumb their nose at the American justice system to gin-up a media-worthy event or political result. I do not believe Attorney General Eric Holder is honest and ethical – or can be trusted with this inquiry.

 

Seven, that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has somehow gained wisdom and enlightenment to put forth the following piece in Time Magazine is to demonstrate why progressive socialist democrats are bereft of common sense and are perhaps the most dangerous among us …

 

 

Atrocity? A thug apparently attacks a police officer after committing a criminal act and is shot dead – and that’s an atrocity? Just another act of systemic racism? An example of class warfare? In what alternative universe does a basketball player, albeit a champion basketball player, have access to all of the facts and comes to the conclusion we are viewing an atrocity, another act of systemic racism and class warfare? This is an example of the clear and present danger idiots who have gained some measure of celebrity pose to society when they opine on social events.

 

Eight, a peaceful protest ends being peaceful when Molotov cocktails are used or shots are fired. It doesn’t matter what group initiates the hostile action, the police cannot allow anyone, peaceful or not, to remain at risk in the area. To do so would be police malfeasance.

 

Nine, to allow looting, rioting, and the destruction of private property in order to prevent further rioting or to avoid appearing racist is wrong.

 

Ten, when you hear “no justice, no peace” who are hearing the words of racists, activists, and others who are willing to condemn and convict someone without knowing the facts. …

 

Eleven, and if you want to see a case of blatant self-promotion from the mother of another thug, you need go no farther than the liberal Time Magazine piece by Trayvon Martin’s mother.

 

 

I hate that you and your family must join this exclusive yet growing group of parents and relatives who have lost loved ones to senseless gun violence. Of particular concern is that so many of these gun violence cases involve children far too young. But Michael is much more than a police/gun violence case; Michael is your son. …

 

Further complicating the pain and loss in this tragedy is the fact that the killer of your son is alive, known, and currently free. In fact, he is on paid administrative leave. <Source>

 

Excuse me! Is this the mother who was looking for a big payday from the death of her son – even before Zimmerman was charged with a crime? Is this the innocent child that was visiting his father while serving a ten-day suspension from school? A man-child killed due to a self-initiated confrontation with a neighborhood watch captain that did everything right when he called the police and was then attacked by the physically imposing Trayvon Martin?

 

She didn’t lose her son to senseless gun violence, her son precipitated the confrontation by attacking George Zimmerman and forcing him to use lethal force to save his life.

 

Her statement that …

 

 

Bottom line …

The racists, race-baiters, race-hustlers, and agitators don’t give a damn about Michael Brown or those in the Ferguson community. They are there for self-promotion and possibly a payday. It pains me to see a community suddenly fall prey to these race-mongering bastards – and I include President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, Governor Jay Nixon, and the other political asswipes who are attempting to spin the story for political advantage. As for the communist rabble-rousers like the New Black Panther Party, one wonders why some in the black community – including law enforcement authorities – have not demanded that they be charged with a crime in rally a crowd to call for Officer Wilson’s death.

ISIS Beheads and Shows Presence in Ferguson


James Foley just before ISIS beheading 2

American photojournalist James Foley executed by grizzly beheading by a British accented ISIS Islamic terrorist as an act of retribution for the U.S. Military bombing missions that has slowed down Yazidi and Christian genocide in Iraq and has aided Kurds to retake a strategic dam just outside Mosel.

 

A masked militant claims the murder is in retaliation for American airstrikes against the Islamic State militants in Iraq. Missing since Nov. 22, 2012, Foley appears to be forced to read an anti-American statement before he is beheaded in the gruesome five-minute clip. His family confirmed his death late Tuesday evening.

In an unspeakable act of savagery, an American photojournalist was beheaded in a video released Tuesday by Islamic State terrorists who claimed the killing was retaliation for U.S. air strikes against the group in Iraq.

 

The barbaric footage was posted on YouTube less than 24 hours after the marauding army of evil, also known as ISIS, vowed: “We will drown all of you in blood.”

 

Foley, 40, of New Hampshire, a freelance reporter for the Boston-based GlobalPost, was abducted in Syria 22 months ago while covering that country’s civil war.

 

In the video … — called out President Obama for authorizing air strikes to stop its expansion (sic) and desire for genocide.

 

After killing the handcuffed Foley, a cloaked terrorist left the victim’s head on the small of his back. The menacing executioner, dressed head-to-toe in black, had a chilling message for Obama.

 

Grabbing another captured U.S. journalist, Steven Sotloff, 31, of Miami, a contributor for Time magazine, the killer stared into the camera and vowed in what sounded like a British accent, “The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision.”

Now let me tell you why this is huge. One – ISIS has promised to spill the blood of Americans on our own soil. Two – This British accented Islamic terrorist representing ISIS, tells Obama if the U.S. keeps up air strikes against ISIS the same fate of Foley awaits will be applied to Steven Sotloff – “a contributor for Time magazine”.

 

Two is a self-evident blackmail threat. One has gained significance because of the looting-thuggery taking place in Ferguson MO. Two is significant because it is an ISIS declaration of Islamic terrorism against the United States of America and this land of Liberty’s citizens.

 

And this brings me to the specifics of Ferguson MO. While the news was broadcasting about the rioting going on because a White police officer grew weary of an 18 year old thieving bully Black man from wailing on him, shot him to death. Amidst the rioting some sharp eyes caught a protest sign that actually said, “ISIS Here”.

 

I first found this on an email alert from WND late yesterday, but today many bloggers have picked up on it. I am going to cross post the email alert I received ACT! for America.

THE ISLAMIC STATE: THE ENEMY WITHIN?

 

ACT! for America

Last night, amid the tragedy and ongoing drama that continues to unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, a shocking image appeared which should serve as a reminder for every American about the threat we face from jihad…

 

ISIS Here sign Ferguson MO

 

In this image from CNN’s coverage of the events in Ferguson, a marcher can be clearly seen in the background holding a sign that says: “ISIS HERE.”

ISIS, of course, is the acronym formerly used to refer to the jihadist terrorist organization that is widely referred to as the “Islamic State.”

The Islamic State has committed unspeakable atrocities in the Middle East, slaughtering Christians and Muslims alike.

But they also are targeting America, both with potential acts of jihad and propaganda.

In fact, the ISIS sign at the Ferguson march is perhaps no surprise given that the Islamic State has made extensive use of social media to conduct outreach to protesters there.

We can hope that the Islamic State’s efforts to win support for their cause here in the U.S. will be totally unsuccessful, but hope is not a strategy.

And, as we have warned repeatedly already, there is no doubt that the Islamic State wants to target the U.S. and Americans both here and around the world.

In fact, just Monday, the Islamic State issued another threat to the U.S., promising We will drown all of you in blood.

In an interview with VICE media, Islamic State spokesman Abu Mosa had this to say:

 

“I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

Last week, an unnamed intelligence official told the Washington Post that the Islamic State viewed conflict with the U.S. as inevitable.

It can’t be emphasized enough how important it is that America remain vigilant at this time. There are many competing news stories out there right now, but none of the issues that America must face are as significant as the threat from jihad. Our national security and the safety of our citizens must remain paramount.
