White man gets 40 months for hate-crime attack on Sikh cabbie

From [HERE] A white man was sentenced this morning in U.S. District Court to 40 months in prison for viciously beating a Sikh cab driver while making racist statements about Muslims.

Jamie Larson, who turned 50 on Sunday, was originally charged with malicious harassment in King County Superior Court, but the case was turned over to federal prosecutors in March because the federal hate crime law carries a longer possible sentence of up to 10 years.

Larson pleaded guilty in June to hate crime, but he claimed he remembered nothing of the incident because he had blacked out from drinking when he attacked the 50-year-old cab driver because he mistakenly believed he was Muslim. The driver is an immigrant from India and not a Muslim. 

Federal prosecutors, however, point out that Larson has a long history of alcohol-fueled violence, sexually assaulting a neighbor in 2008 and beating an ambulance driver in 2009 while drunk.

The driver couldn’t work for two months and required months of physical therapy due to his injuries. Coughenour, the judge, called Larson’s racist comments to the cab driver “the most disgusting, ugly and racist language that I have heard in 30 years on the bench.”

Maulana Karenga - Black People, HIV-AIDS and Racial Justice: Fighting on Two Fronts

"If you attempt to understand the AIDS holocaust, without under­standing white supremacy, you will only be confused; and you may be dead." - Welsing 

From [HERE] Thus, as public policy and socially sanctioned practice, racism determines who will be considered and treated and how; who will live best and die worst; who will work, be educated well or walk and drive down the street without being targeted (profiled) by color, regardless of age and innocence. It is in this context that we find ourselves fighting on two fronts in the struggle around HIV/AIDS: on the front of health and well-being and that of racial and social injustice in society as a whole. For the two are clearly linked; and so whatever is offered as a common strategy and struggle to address the pandemic of HIV/AIDS, we know we have not received and do not have the consideration and resources we need, and certainly not the consideration and resources equal or even similar to the favored and well-funded White community. And yet we continue to make do and struggle on; to perform what small miracles we can; and to do the good demanded of us by our commitment to care and serve which is so essential to our cultural and moral sense of ourselves as African people.  

This year's World AIDS Day theme is "Getting to Zero": zero new infections; zero discrimination; and zero AIDS related deaths. But the question is how do we get to zero, i.e., an AIDS free generation, when our rates of infection are constantly and steeply rising, not going down? How do we get to zero when our resources are diminishing even as the need for resources increases due to rising rates of infection? And how do we get to zero when our organizations doing the critical work are under-funded and in danger of further weakening? It, again, reflects the view of things from the status and standpoint of Whites, not from that of Black people.

Nothing but Net! Macy's Practices 'Whitenology' on Targeted Black Consumers with Unenforceable "bill of rights" [never play for your own sandwich]

From [HERE] Six weeks after a series of racial-profiling allegations from Black and Latino shoppers, a coalition of high-end retailers and civil rights leaders came up with a so called “bill of rights” to protect non-white customers from “shop-and-frisk” practices or racial targeting by the NYPD in the white owned and controlled stores [more on white collective power HERE]

The list of "rights" was released to the media after getting final approval Monday morning at a meeting that included the Rev. Al Sharpton and other civil rights advocates and executives from Barneys, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor and other department stores. The NYPD did not participate.

The one-page bill of rights will be displayed in stores such as Barneys, Macy’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, and the Gap, and it will include phone numbers for the New York City Commission on Human Rights, the state Division of Human Rights, and the manager of each store that posts it.

The document “strictly prohibits unreasonable searches and/or the profiling of customers by any employee,” and requires that a person should be detained only if an employee “has reasonable grounds” to believe that the person was in criminal possession of “an anti-security item” or “was committing or attempting to commit shoplifting on the premises.”

[In other words, it informs you of rights you already have and provides information already available to the public. It confers no legally enforceable rights on the shopper [victim] and does not provide any cause of action to sue for any violation or breach of the "bill of rights." It provides no additional or new remedy that did not already exist. There is no penalty or fine assessed against the store or NYPD. It is meaningless. Who's the mack? 

The Black revolutionary Steve Cokely (video below) said "to never play for your own sandwich" and he made reference to the old McDonald's commercial featuring Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. In it, Jordan is sitting in a gym with a bag of food. Larry Bird, a white man, asks 'can I play you for your sandwich?' and Jordan agrees. Then they play one on one. What does Jordan get if he wins? Nothing. That is 'Whitenology' - making you play for your own sandwich.

Here, Black people [via Al Sharpton] are playing for their own sandwich; allegedly getting some respect from Macy's and other white retailers? Respect is something you can only give to yourself! Macy's cannot give Black people respect. According to Neely Fuller "there is only one form of respect - it is self respect - the respect that one gives to ones self, refusing to lie to oneself. Being honest with yourself about reality. It is deception (white supremacy/racism) for white people to give you something (respect) that you already have. Like singing songs or holding hands - posting signs inside stores will have absolutely nothing to do with addressing the challenges and conditions of 'the open warfare continuously being waged against the non-white collective. [MORE] Stop supporting white supremacy.']

Do Not Expect to be Treated Humanely by White Cops: Still No Real Remedy for Victim of White Supremacy Killed by Berkeley Police after dialing 911  

NAACP urges changes to Berkeley mental health services. This kind of request by non-white people to white police does not recognize the racist environment that we are operating in. So, it's usefuleness is limited until the issue of white supremacy is dealt withMao Tse-Tung said, "it is well known that when you do anything, unless you understand its actual circumstances, its nature and its relations to other things, you will not know the laws governing it, or know how to do it, or be able to do it well." [MORE] Here, in a white supremacy system it is pathological to expect white people to treat non-whites humanely or to otherwise rely on moral suasion to solve problems with white people. [MORE].

In photo Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan at press conference after several detectives worked overtime to find his son's allegedly stolen iPhone in October 2012. [MORE]

From [HERE] and [HERE] Just before midnight on Feb. 12, Kayla Xavier Moore’s roommate dialed 911. Moore, 41, a paranoid schizophrenic, was off her prescription meds and highly agitated. The roommate thought he knew the drill – Moore would be taken to a psychiatric hospital, stabilised with medication and allowed to go home in 72 hours.

That’s not what happened. Finding Moore had an outstanding $10,000 warrant from San Francisco, Berkeley police decided to take her to jail. When they tried to handcuff her, Moore, who was also African American and transgender, resisted – and died. The coroner said Moore died from obesity, drugs and cardiovascular disease.

On March 13th, 2013 Black teenager, Jeremy Carter was brutally arrested by members of the Berkley Police Department. [MORE

Moore’s family blames the police. Which is a reasonable accusation considering the facts that she died after a violent struggle with at least three cops who were beating on her in a small space. The cops apparently ended up on top of her and restrained her with 2 sets of handcuffs and ankle straps. Minutes after the struggle she stopped breathing - coroner missed that? To the extent that you might be dealing with a racist coroner - get an independent autopsy done. 

Thus far no lawsuit has been filed, no criminal charges were filed against cops and after being briefly put on administrative leave following the incident, the officers have since returned to work. [MORE]

According to police, Moore's roommate said in the 911 call that there were no weapons in the house, but that Moore had been known to pick up kitchen knives and threaten to use them. He said that Moore was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder. [MORE]

Moore was not creating a disturbance and presented no threat, her sister Maria Moore told the community at a meeting on the incident. "Berkeley was well aware of Xavier's issues," "I don't know the circumstances that happened that night, but mental health wasn't there for him. They needed that aspect to help calm him down, to help communicate with him. You’re dealing with someone who’s paranoid, who trusts no one, and you have the police there?"[MORE]

'You Have No Right to Live Among Us': Israel says Africans can be Detained for a Year Without being Charged [like Nazi Germany]

African Migrants seen as 'infiltrators' threatening Israel's demographic character = Racism as white genetic survival. From [HERE] and [HERE] Israel's parliament has approved a law which allows illegal immigrants from Africa to be detained for up to a year without trial in the latest in a series of measures aimed at reducing the numbers of African migrants in the country.

The new bill passed by 30 votes in favor to 15 against during a late-night vote in the 120-member Knesset, Israel's parliament, and was announced Tuesday. A previous law, which was overturned by the Supreme Court in September, had set a maximum detention period of three years.

Supporters of the bill in the government see the migrants as illegal job-seekers, but critics say many of the migrants are asylum-seekers fleeing hardship and persecution in their homelands.

Members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party praised the new legislation. Interior Minister Gideon Saar said it would "allow us to keep illegals away from our cities."

Miri Regev, another Likud Knesset member, said Israel should "send them all back to their countries."  "This law is needed in order to deter potential infiltrators. The present reality is a human ticking time bomb," Regev, who also heads the Knesset's Interior Committee, told parliament.

NYPD Go On Warrantless Search and Beat Down of Latino Family after Stop about Parking Space

From [HERE] and [HERE] A Latino woman has sued the city claiming police entered her home in Staten island without a warrant, and beat her family  according to court documents. The officers also stepped on their pet bird intentionally, killing it, court documents say.

The violent incident occurred Sept. 2, 2012, as Lugo’s family was celebrating a Labor Day barbecue, the suit said.

Lugo’s son Edwin Avellanet was taking a bag of garbage outside when cops stopped and questioned him about an orange construction cone placed in front of their Corson Ave. home to save a parking spot, according to lawyer Jason Leventhal.

The cops demanded to see identification and Avellanet, 26, refused, stating that he had done nothing wrong. A cop grabbed Avellanet by the arm, but he was able to break free and retreat into the house, according to the suit. The lawyer said cops started smashing several first-floor windows with their equipment. Lugo opened the front door to see who was outside and the cops barged in, Leventhal said.

“It was completely uncalled for,” Leventhal said. “There was no excuse for going into the house without a warrant.” Additional cops arrived and swarmed throughout the house looking for Avellanet. “They threw me like a piece of garbage on the floor,” Lugo said.

Another son, George Lugo, and family friend Luis Ortega were struck in the head repeatedly with a baton and suffered severe facial injuries, according to the complaint filed Nov. 29 in Brooklyn Federal Court.

For Racist Mascot Bowl [Chiefs vs. Redskins] Excited Racist Suspect Accidentally Promotes Genocide to Sell Burgers at Sonic 

Don't eat there. Like this silly ass sign, racism usually comes out of nowhere. How will you react to it? In a white supremacy system you should expect racism from all white people, everyday. If they are not racist then be pleasantly surprised. Having such an expectation may enable you to have an intelligent or transformative reaction to racism. You will not be surprised and it will not move you as much. White people's behavior in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labour, law, politics, religion, sex and war) is motivated by their fear of genetic annihilation = White plus Black equals Colored. White plus Brown equals Colored. White plus Yellow equals Colored [MORE] and [MORE

From [HERE] and [HERE] Sonic Drive-In has apologized for a racist sign promoting Sunday's Chiefs-Skins game outside one of its restaurants in Belton, Mo. The sign in question said, "'KC CHIEFS' WILL SCALP THE REDSKINS FEED THEM WHISKEY SEND - 2 - RESERVATION."

The uproar began after a photo circulated on Twitter showing the sign in Belton, Missouri.  VP of Public Relations Patrick Lenow, who is white, told NBC News that the unnamed white employee is known for creative signs, but that this one was "in poor taste." The sign was taken down hours later and the employee was "very apologetic," according to Lenow.

Still, Native Americans excoriated the sign as indicative of why Native American mascots need to be banned. Audra Simpson, assistant professor of anthropology at Columbia University in New York City, told NBC News that at "first blush (the sign) is just shockingly racist" and "hateful," but added that the existence of signs like these is not surprising to Native Americans.

Nelson Mandela had No Fear of Confronting White Supremacy - [but white supremacy is still undefeated]

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. [MORE]

Unlike so-called Black leaders of today he had no fear of identifying and confronting white supremacy/racism as the major problem facing Black people. He knew that confronting this murderous reality could lead to an unnatural death. According to his legend, he was a "patriot" - in the sense that he was committed to dismantling the system of white supremacy and replacing it with a system of justice. [more But that did not happen during his lifetime. 

And Still the Heaviest, Heavyweight Champion of the World. Thus far, Non-white persons have been unable to decode the white supremacist/racist playbook - all persons who have attempted to establish justice and/or to eliminate racism have failed - 'it is a losing streak that is centuries long.' [MORE]

Neely Fuller explains that "of all the white people in the known universe, it is those who practice white supremacy (racism) who have the greatest will, the greatest ability, to do whatever they choose to do in all areas of people activity including economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, sex and war. They have also shown, through the practice of white supremacy, that they have the great will and great ability to subjugate non-white people, basically through the skilled use of deceit and violence. They maintain this subjugation through a day-to-day "code" of thought, speech and action, utilizing a variety of words and deeds in a manner that promotes falsehood, non-justice, and incorrectness."  

Although this 'daily code' of white supremacy is right in front of our eyes, non-white people fearfully look away -- pretending that issues of class are to blame or that white Republicans are the source of our collective mistreatment. There is great fear in recognizing reality because to do so would mean that once and for all something must be done about it. Mandela is a role model in this way. Rather than hurrying or busying himself in the simple minded or cynical, endless pursuit of pleasure and excitement or contentment with maintaining a level of survival he acted to resist white supremacy and was willing to to give his life for the achievement of justice. 

According to Frances Cress Welsing, this fear of recognizing white supremacy 'coming from our Black collective is consistent with submission to and/or cooperation with the racist oppressive dynamic - albeit with an historical and continuing chorus of complaints and worrying. This thinking and behavior is also consistent with the illusion that there can be a complete integration of non-whites into the white supremacy system.'  [MORE]  Non-white people can never be integrated into a white supremacy system. [MORE]. "The victims of Racism (non-white people) are neither "separate" from the racists, nor are they "integrated" with the racists. Therefore under this condition, the victims of Racism have only two choices: 1) act in support of the practice of racism, or 2) act to eliminate the practice of racism" [MORE]

Last March Nine South African police officers pleaded not guilty to charges of killing a man who died after being dragged behind their police van - after police tied him to it. [MORE]

Historians label different episodes  "Jim Crow", "Segregation" and so on but they all lead to a refinement of white supremacy [decrease the necessity for using direct violence against non-white people, preferring to use deceit to gain acquiescence and control]. 

The "apartheid" system is part of this highly observable pattern. It might be gone, but the system of white supremacy rolls on 24/7, worldwide in all areas of people activity. In South Africa, white people own the vast majority of all the land and 85% of Black people are poor (see article below). In fact some have said that "the ANC government now is simply an extension of the apartheid government."  Even now the media is working to sell you that white supremacy will somehow be buried along with Nelson Mandela - this of course is the opposite of reality and that is the point. Go turn it own and see for yourself...   

The Illusion of Freedom. For white people, South Africa's economic growth since the fall of apartheid has been significant, according to a new report from investment banking firm Goldman Sachs. Among the advances made in the economy since 1994, the gross domestic product (GDP) jumped from $136 billion to $400 billion and the number of households with electricity went from nearly 60 percent to 85 percent. Among other changes: tax receipts increased from $114 billion to $814 billion and the Johannesburg stock market cap went from $3 billion to $50 billion.

These numbers mean little to the Black population. There are stark racial inequalities in terms of income, with 85 percent of blacks poor, while 87 percent of whites are middle to upper class.  [MORE] and [MORE]. The number of South Africans living on less than a dollar a day has doubled along with the number of millionaires in the country.

Eight Black men, among them Nelson Mandela, raise their fists in defiance through the barred windows of a prison car in 1964 after receiving a life sentence for conspiracy, sabotage and treason. [MOREA former U.S. official said the CIA Helped Jail Mandela. [MORE]

Aside from the low pay and poor working conditions, black South Africans have to deal with a 29 percent unemployment rate. Nationwide, the rate is number four in the world at 25 percent and has not dropped below 22 percent since 2007.  Unemployment levels among young black workers is nearing 50 percent. Also, 73 percent of top business managers are white. Meanwhile average earnings for black households are a sixth of their white counterparts. Therefore, the overall labor market for black South Africans, is in an abysmal state of affairs. 

Prior to the apartheid, two land acts – one in 1913 and one in the 1930′s – were passed in which over 90 percent of all land was seized by white settlers, confining the indigenous population to the measly leftovers. At the end of apartheid and the rise of ANC political machine, land was supposed to be transferred back to black ownership in an attempt to even the playing field. However, since that time very little land has been redistributed to the black population. Some estimates put the figures of white land ownership at between 50 and 87 percent, while whites only make up about 10 percent of the population.

Where Does Obama Stand on Black Unemployment again? At the End of the Line. Black Unemployment Almost Double the National Average

From [HERE] Despite continued depression-like joblessness amongst Blacks and Latinos, this morning's official unemployment report registered the lowest overall jobless rate in five years. According to the Department of Labor, the percentage of those actively looking for work but who could not find it fell to seven percent.  The jobless rate for African Americans is almost double that at nearly 13 percent and for Latinos it's close to 9 percent. Overall the numbers show that the economy continues to inch forward but in a sideways sort of way.

Alongside the difficult black and Latino unemployment numbers is the fact that the November report showed surprising gains across the board - for white people. The number of people unemployed for less than five weeks fell by 300,000 and full-time work grew versus part-time work. Additionally, hundreds of thousands of white workers are less discouraged about the job market than a year ago and the number of people opting out of job hunting due to frustration has stabilized, though it remains at a near thirty-five year low. [MORE]

The Showcase President. According to Neely Fuller, in a white supremacy system, it is white supremacists who are responsible for everything that happens or does not happen in regards to non-white people. "Whatever a Black person gets, and/or is allowed to keep, is the result of decisions made by White Supremacists. This is the functional meaning of White Supremacy (Racism) that many people — particularly non-white people — prefer not to acknowledge.

Tennessee Wants to execute 11 inmates (43% of them are Black and 100% of the Prosecutors are White)

Since 1977, the overwhelming majority of death row defendants (80%) have been executed for killing white victims, although whites make up only 50% percent of all homicide victims. In a 1990 report, the non-partisan U.S. General Accounting Office found “a pattern of evidence indicating racial disparities in the charging, sentencing, and imposition of the death penalty.”

A North Carolina study, based on data from 502 murders occurring between 1993 and 1997 found that defendants whose victims are white are 3.5 times more likely to be sentenced to death than those with non-white victims. Underlying the statistical evidence is the differential treatment of African-Americans at every turn:

  • All of Tennessee’s District Attorneys General are white. These are the people who decide whether or not to seek the death penalty. ("Prosecutors, more than any other officials in the system, have the power, discretion, and responsibility to remedy the discriminatory treatment of African Americans in the criminal justice process." [MORE]) 
  • African Americans make up 43% of Tennessee’s death row population but only 17% of its total population. [MORE]

From [HERE] A recent maneuver out of the state attorney general’s office in Tennessee is being called unprecedented after officials there asked the Supreme Court for permission to execute 10 prisoners currently on death row.

Those ten inmates have been awaiting execution an average of more than 27 years, but the state put a hold on the practice of putting prisoners to death in 2011 after it was forced to surrender its supply of sodium thiopental, a sedative that had up until then been one of three components used in the lethal cocktail administered by executioners in Tennessee.

Just this September, though, the Tennessee Department of Correction announced it would be switching to a single-drug lethal injection method, relying instead on just one narcotic, pentobarbital, which had been used primarily by veterinarians up until recently when other states began administering it to death row inmates.

The use of pentobarbital as the sole drug of choice at executions across the United States has generated a fair share of criticism and safety concerns in recent years, but it isn’t the narcotic that’s now raising questions in Tennessee. Rather, officials are being asked to explain why for the first time presumably ever they’ve ordered at once death warrants for 10 separate individuals.

What is the Real Purpose? New Stop & Frisk Stats: Only 1 in 50 arrests (0.1%) of all stops, led to a conviction for a violent crime

The Stop & Frisk, Identification & Detainment of non-white people by the police is to control the movement of non-white people, and to demean and terrorize them; all of which further the goals of white supremacy. [MORE] and [MORE]. Measures such as "stop and frisk" and "papers please" identification laws aimed at all non-whites 'who look illegal or undocumented' are similar to the various movement restriction and ID measures aimed at Jews during Nazi Germany. Such non-laws were preconditions to genocide.[MORE

According to Raul Hilberg: "the whole [Nazi] identification system, with its personal documents, specially assigned names, and conspicuous tagging in public, was a powerful weapon in the hands of the police. First, the system was an auxiliary device that facilitated the enforcement of residence and movement restrictions. Second, it was an independent control measure in that it enabled the police to pick up any Jew, anywhere, anytime. Third, and perhaps most important, identification had a paralyzing effect on its victims. The system induced the Jews to be even more docile, more responsive to command than before. The wearer of the star was exposed; he thought that all eyes were fixed upon him. It was as though the whole population had become a police force, watching him and guarding his actions. No Jew, under those conditions, could resist, escape, or hide without first ridding himself of the conspicuous tag, the revealing middle name, the telltale ration card, passport, and identification papers. Yet the riddance of these burdens was dangerous, for the victim could be recognized and denounced. Few Jews took the chance. The vast majority wore the star and, wearing it, were lost." (11) [MORE].

Here, in a white supremacy system there is no need for a yellow star, it is your skin color that identifies you as a target. [MORE] and [MORE].

From [HERE] Mayor Michael Bloomberg has often defended New York City’s discredited stop-and-frisk program by arguing that it is necessary to cut crime. That claim was never credible; crime declined in cities that did not detain citizens millions of times over the course of the decade, as New York did, often without legitimate reason. In photo, NYPD Commissioner R. Kelly, who stated that he targeted and focused on Blacks & Latinos because he wanted to instill fear in them that every time they left their homes they could be targeted by police. [MORE]

Similarly, crime is down in New York City, even though new stop-and-frisk data made public last week shows that the Police Department has greatly reduced the number of times officers have stopped and frisked people on the street.

Indeed, the evidence suggests that the department could have reached its public safety goals by using stop-and-frisk legally, when officers had legitimate suspicion of criminal activity, instead of in a way that undermined confidence in law enforcement and violated the Constitution.

Above, White NYPD Deputy Inspector Recorded Telling an Officer to Target Young Black Men Wearing Dark Clothing [MORE]

New York City in 2012 had the lowest murder count in at least 50 years, and it is on pace to have even fewer murders this year. At the same time, the number of stops by police officers has dropped precipitously from more than 200,000 in the first quarter of 2012, the high-water mark of the program, to just over 21,000 in the third quarter of this year. If stops alone were holding back a hidden tsunami of crime, the city would have been overwhelmed by now.

A Federal District Court ruled in August that the tactics underlying the program violated the rights of black and Hispanic citizens, who were disproportionately singled out. Data presented at trial showed that only 6 percent of the stops resulted in arrests.

In photo, Racist Suspect Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced a new high school on Friday will be named after Nelson Mandela. "The Mandela School for Social Justice." [cameras will be everywhere]

A new analysis by the state attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, of nearly 150,000 such arrests suggests that they netted few serious criminals. According to the report, only 1 in 50 arrests, or 0.1 percent of all stops, led to a conviction for a violent crime; similarly, just 1 in 50 arrests led to conviction for possession of a weapon. Nearly half of arrests resulted in no convictions because those arrested were never prosecuted; had their cases dismissed; or received an “adjournment in contemplation of dismissal,” which means that the charge is dismissed if the person stays out of trouble for six months or a year.

The collateral costs of an arrest, however, can be disastrous for the person arrested. It can mean losing public housing, student loans or job opportunities. Beyond that, the program wastes the time and resources of district attorneys who have to dispose of the resulting cases. According to the attorney general’s report, the stop-and-frisk era has also seen a dramatic increase in damage claims against the police.

Atlantic City Police Unleash Dog[s] on Black Man after Stopping him for being in 'Drug Neighborhood' 

"Every time they hit me they said, Shut up Nigger!" From [HERE] A federal judge is raising questions about the Atlantic City police department's handling of brutality complaints against its officers. U.S. District Judge Joel Schneider in Camden is presiding over a 2010 excessive-force lawsuit against two Atlantic City officers who have faced nearly 80 complaints between them. None has been upheld by Internal Affairs.

The city previously provided summaries of the cases against the officers, Sgt. Frank Timek (in photo with police attack dog Vader) and Officer Sterling Wheaten. But The Press of Atlantic City reports Schneider has ordered the city to turn over the full Internal Affairs reports.

The judge says those reports are needed to determine if the city has been, as alleged, "deliberately indifferent to the violent propensities of its police officers.''

Julius Adams is the latest non-white person to file a lawsuit against the Atlantic City Police department, claiming he was the victim of excessive force from Sgt. Timek and another officer. "I was in handcuffs in a puddle of blood," Adams said. "They tried to kill me. They literally tried to kill me."

Adams says Timek and another officer approached him and two friends early last year after they finished gambling around midnight. Adams claimed they walked several blocks from the casino before Timek stopped them and told them they were near a drug neighborhood.

"They told us, 'Up against the wall!'" Adams said. "I said, 'Up against the wall for what?' They said, 'Oh you got a smart mouth huh? I said up against the wall!'" According to Adams, Timek let his friends go but released his police dog on him. "He ran straight to me on my leg and I started screaming," Adams said. Adams says the officers started beating him and then released a second police dog.

"I got two dogs biting me, playing tug o' war on my leg and they were still hitting me and kicking me," Adams said. "And every time they hit me they said, 'Shut up nigger! Shut up nigger!" Adams says he lost some use of his leg, is in constant pain and still has nightmares. ["in the absence of white supremacy niggers would not exist."]

Lawsuit says West Baton Rouge Police Stopped Black Man for Wearing Saggy Pants - then Killed him in a "Callous & Cowardly Manner"

From [HERE] and [HERE] Exactly one week after Ervin Edwards was found dead inside a padded jail cell in the West Baton Rouge Parish Prison, his family filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Federal Court. "He walked into that police station. He walked in there and he had to be rolled out." 

According to the lawsuit, Edwards was traveling with his girlfriend back to Jefferson Parish when he stopped for gas in Port Allen. The couple got into a minor altercation and police were dispatched on the scene around 5:47 p.m. after the clerk at the station called 911.

By the time officers arrived the couple had stopped arguing, the lawsuit states (in other words at the time of the stop Edwards was not disturbing the peace or otherwise engaged in any unlawful activity -bw). However, sheriff’s deputies questioned Edwards anyway because he was wearing sagging pants, the lawsuit reads.

According to the lawsuit, when Edwards became flippant with deputies about his pants the deputies told him he was going to jail. In the lawsuit it states Edwards jerked away from a deputy and asked, “Why am I going to jail? I didn’t do anything.”

Another deputy grabbed Edwards and threatened to use a stun gun on him if he didn’t submit to police, the lawsuit states. Edwards’ girlfriend told officers not to shoot Edwards with the stun gun because he had high-blood pressure, had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and was deaf in his left ear, which she explained as the reason he spoke so loudly to authorities.

After deputies were able to handcuff Edwards, identified in the lawsuit as weighing more than 300 pounds, he was transported to the parish jail where he died in a padded cell shortly after he arrived, the lawsuit states.

Confused Victim of White Supremacy Martin Bashir Resigns after Overreacting to Sarah Palin's Racist Provocation 

Racism is conduct designed to provoke you. White people are the most provocative people on the planet and Racism is one of the most powerful motivating forces in the universe.  Above, provocative racist suspect, Sarah Palin, throws out red meat to her white base to get them motivated and in so doing she also provokes non-white person, Martin Bashir. (Is her point really about the debt or does she just want to say the words, "racist" and "slavery" and 'Black president' to her "victimized" white people base? - this is the only program the White Party (republicans) is running.)

As stated by Dr. Welsing, "for the sake of Black mental health and for Black intelligence, all people of color must understand the dynamics of racism/white supremacy, what it is and how it works, so that they can have an appropriate, self-respecting response to racism/ white supremacy." [MORE]

Race is not real but racism is. [MORE] You should expect racism from white people every day - if they are not racist then be pleasantly surprised. Having such an expectation may enable you to have an intelligent or transformative reaction to racism and to constructively solve problems.  It will not move you as much. You must be mindful that white people practice racism to survive when you are in their presence. [MORE]  ("It is pathological for Blacks to keep attempting moral suasion on a people who have no ethics or morality where race is a variable" [MORE]). You will see racism but stop carrying it as much and you will not take it for something real. 'Like dealing with a child who says, "Mom, this happened. Dad, I need that. Hey, look at me." The parent says, "yes sure, ok. But doesn't take it too seriously - your mind is not caught up in the story, because you don't think in that way.' 

This detached reaction is not shock, outrage, crying, begging, or violent. Such reactions cause stress, anger, misery, strokes, incarceration, death or get you fired like Mr. Bashir. Like most victims of white supremacy, Bashir is absolutely confused by racism/white supremacy. [MORE]  After consuming Sarah Palin's racist message he became hurt & angry and then made his angry comments. What did he expect from this racist suspect and who is he complaining to? Here, he got caught up in the substance of the story/illusion; that is, caught up in Sarah Palin's nonsensical racist analogy - which is a form of mental bondage, for real. 

He also has misunderstood his position in the white supremacy system; all non-white people are in the powerless class. Did he really think a Pakistani man could get away with talking shit about a white woman like that on a network owned by maker of nuclear weapons, General Electric during prime time? In a white supremacy system folks like him just get filtered out. Like Christopher Dorner, game over for him and no problems were solved. 

From [HEREMartin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC as a result of the derogatory comments he made on the air a few weeks ago about Sarah Palin. He joined the network in 2010.

Bashir had slammed Sarah Palin for her remarks comparing U.S. indebtedness to China to slavery and cited the diaries of a former plantation owner who punished slaves by having someone defecate in their mouth or urinate on their face.

He suggested the former Alaska governor deserved the same treatment.

"When Mrs. Palin invokes slavery, she doesn't just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, she would be the outstanding candidate," he said in the Nov. 15 outburst.

In response, officials at Palin's political action committee demanded the NBC take action against Bashir for the comments. [MORE]
