Ohio Puppetician with Psychopathic Racial Disorder Says 11-Year-Old Black Girl Tased in the Back by Black Cop Deserved it & was Morally Wrong for Shoplifting

BLACK ON BLACK CRIME IN SERVICE OF WHITE DOMINATION. From [TechDirt] and [MORE] Cincinnati police officer Kevin Brown’s decision to fire a Taser at an 11-year-old girl suspected of shoplifting from a grocery store in August immediately drew criticism from city officials and advocates. The Black cop told the child, “You know, sweetheart, this is why there’s no grocery stores in the black community.” [MORE]

The girl can be seen on the body camera footage [which he turned off prior to the incident and turned back on after] asking Brown if the Taser barbs were still embedded in her skin.

"It's in my body?" she asked. "They in my body?"

He explained, that yes, they were in her skin, but he's not supposed to take them out.

She was scared and crying at times as an all-male team of EMTs urge her to remain calm. The fire department removed the barbs and she was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. 

The girl was charged with theft and obstructing official business, but Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters dropped the charges saying police are supposed to confer with his office on charges related to children and that did not happen.[MORE]

But Ohio state Representative John Becker had a different take. Had it been his daughter, he announced in an August newsletter, “I’d be ashamed and embarrassed that she did something stupid enough to get herself tased.”

This is even worse than the police union's take on the incident, which referred to the completely expected backlash as "kneejerk." But, hey, I guess deciding to tase an 11-year-old in the back -- one who reportedly was all of 4'11'' and 90 pounds -- couldn't possibly be portrayed as a kneejerk reaction by a law enforcement officer. When force isn't truly needed, we can be sure some cops will deploy it anyway.

But Rep. John Becker's take is the hottest take of all. Anyone tased by a cop -- even an 11-year-old -- is a person who brought that crackling, barbed punishment down on themselves. There's no reason to question the wisdom or necessity of the Taser deployment. Rather, we should question ourselves. And perhaps society. But mostly ourselves.

Becker also addressed police shootings in his newsletter. If his child were shot by police, he wrote, “rather than blaming the cop, I’d be blaming myself and endlessly soul searching to figure out how I failed as a parent and why my kid grew up to be a punk.” He added, “Based on the evidence of what I see on television, it often times appears to me that justice was delivered to the dead punk.”

"Based on the evidence of what I see on television…" Holy shit. This is an elected representative. And he thinks the TV is giving him the "evidence" he needs to make snap judgments on tased kids. Blame the victim. And blame the victim's parents.

  Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said the Taser deployment was "unnecessary" and “we will make some changes but overallI we believe we have a very solid policy.”  “We” here means the masters he serves. Chief Isaac is another      Straw-Boss      - a Sambo who is appointed a certain oversight role for the white power Overseer. [     MORE     ]

Chief Isaac is another Straw-Boss - a Sambo who is appointed a certain oversight role for the white power Overseer. [MORE]

Becker also told The Appeal that if police tase a child, “it could be an indication of a parenting problem.” He added, “If I were to do research, I would expect to find that kids that come from two parent in-tact [sic] supportive families are less likely to get in trouble with the authorities than kids that came from tougher environments.”

"If I were to do the research…" Would this be research beyond the television watching that's given Becker such keen insight into officer-involved shootings? Who knows? Becker's certainly not going to do the research. He's just going to stick by his electro-guns and blame victims of cop violence for being raised badly or otherwise being harmed by the disintegration of the nuclear family unit -- the 2.5 children born to married heterosexuals who have managed to weather an escalating divorce rate, porn, video games, movies, television, the internet, social media, Satanism, multiple pagan-based holidays, postal rate hikes, alternate sexual orientations, public school indoctrination, Daylight Savings Time, mandatory vaccinations, HAARP projects (known and unknown), President Obama, Brown v. Board of Education, morning-after pills, weird Twitter, the removal of prayer from schools, the Simpsons, artistic expression in general, and whatever else has reduced the American way of life to a hideous nightmare where punk kids manage to live their whole lives without being deservedly tased by blameless, saintly police officers.

Becker is an idiot, but let's pretend the research he didn't do actually says what he thinks it will say. Even if a majority of kids tased/killed by cops are raised by single and/or inattentive parents, that doesn't justify force deployments that far exceed the danger presented by the developing situation. This 11-year-old was tased in the back by an officer who was taller, weighed more, and had the ability to summon any number of additional officers if it appeared this preteen was going to, I don't know, grow a foot, add 100 pounds of weight, and produce an arsenal of weapons before the officer got the mild shoplifting situation under control.

Incredibly, current Ohio state law allows police to tase children as young as seven. Speaking with WLWT, Cincinnati Vice Mayor Chris Smitherman said that he’s “introduced legislation previously on raising the tasing age from 7 to 12 and I’m hoping council will revisit this now raising the age for tasing.”

If you agree with John Becker, you're probably John Becker. Or a cop who hates using force reasonably or responsibly. But you're definitely not the sort of person who can be trusted with government power.

Judge Allows Racist Suspect ‘Vote Counter’ Running for Governor in Georgia to Use Electronic Voting Machines Despite Consensus Among Cybersecurity Experts that Machines are Vulnerable to Hacks

He is also presently running for Governor against a very popular Black woman, Stacey Abrams. She is the first black female major party gubernatorial nominee in the United States. [MORE] The shrinking white population must rig elections to survive.

From [HERE] and [HERE] Judge Amy Totenberg of the US District Court for the Northern District of Georgia [official website] ruled [opinion, PDF] Monday that Georgia will be permitted to go forward with the use of its electronic voting machines, despite security warnings from voting technology experts.

The ruling comes in a 2017 lawsuit filed by Georgia voters and election security organizations who argued that the current machines used in Georgia, called direct-recording electronic (DRE) voting machines, were untrustworthy, insecure, and vulnerable to “malicious intrusion and manipulation of the system and voter data by nation states and cyber savvy individuals.”

There's a broad consensus among cybersecurity experts that such machines are vulnerable to potential hacks. If hackers manipulate vote totals, or another error occurs, there's no backup.

Georgia has 27,000 voting machines spread around 159 counties. At the time of the 2016 election, 5.4 million people were registered to vote in the state.

A few Georgia voters and election security advocates originally filed a lawsuit in 2017 over the state's election security. The lawsuit names Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a candidate for governor, along with the state board of elections, and Fulton County in metro Atlanta.

Kemp, who is white, faces Democrat Stacey Abrams, a Black woman, in the Georgia race for governor.

"With this ruling behind us," Kemp said in a written statement Tuesday morning, "we will continue our preparations for a secure, orderly election in November."

Totenberg found that the plaintiffs had presented sufficient evidence that their votes cast on the DRE machines may be “altered, diluted, or effectively not counted on the same terms as someone using another voting method” but that “the eleventh-hour timing of their motions and an instant grant of the paper ballot relief requested could just as readily jeopardize the upcoming elections, voter turnout, and the orderly administration of the election.

Totenberg allowed Georgia to continue to use the machines due to time constraints and concerns of “voter frustration and disaffection” so close to the November election but urged the state to be prepared for 2020.

“Defendants will fail to address that reality if they demean as paranoia the research-based findings of national cybersecurity engineers and experts in the field of elections…The 2020 elections are around the corner,” wrote Totenberg.

Totenberg is a racist suspect who was appointed by Obama.

Georgia is one of 14 states [NPR report] that use these machines that lacking a paper trail for voter verification.

An NPR/Marist poll this week found that 56 percent of Americans believe electronic voting machines make elections less safe and 68 percent thought paper ballots made elections more secure.

In 2010, when African Americans in Brooks county organized a massive voter turnout drive and elected the first majority-black school board in its history, the secretary of state, Brian Kemp, had a dozen African American activists and school board members arrested and, over the course of a long grueling four-year period, dragged through the courts. Although, in the end, there were zero convictions for voter fraud, there was a chilling effect as lives were ruined, jobs lost, and a hard lesson on the costs of voting made abundantly clear.

Then, in 2014, Kemp put his crosshairs on the New Georgia Voter Project, an organization determined to register some of the 700,000 African Americans in the state who were not yet on the voter rolls. When the group signed up more than 100,000 to vote, Kemp immediately took to the airwaves insisting: “We’re just not going to put up with fraud.” That claim, spoken often and wrongly by Republican stalwarts from Kris Kobach to Donald Trump, is the lie used to justify voter suppression techniques. Yet, as the law professor Justin Levitt has documented, between 2000 and 2014, there have only been 31 cases of voter identification fraud out of one billion votes. Kemp, in his own way, acknowledged the lie when, behind closed doors, he explained to a group of fellow Republicans: “Democrats are working hard ... registering all these minority voters ... If they can do that, they can win these elections in November.” He, therefore, used the power of his office to launch a very public multi-year investigation that would, once again, aim to intimidate and dissuade African Americans from registering to vote.

In 2016, pummeled by voter suppression in more than 30 states, the black voter turnout plummeted by 7%. For the GOP, that was an effective kill rate. For America, it was a lethal assault on democracy. [MORE]

With the 2018 midterm elections less than two months away, voting has been a highly contested issue in federal courts across the country. Just this month courts have heard a number of issues regarding both elections security and pertaining to voting methods in general. On the same day as Totenberg’s ruling, a district judge in Texas dismissed [JURIST report] a lawsuit challenging Texas’ voter ID law, in light of the Fifth Circuit Court’s April ruling upholding the law as constitutional. In Arizona last week, the Ninth Circuit ruled [JURIST report] that Arizona ballot collection laws were Constitutional—the election practice at issue was Arizona’s requirement for people who cast votes in-person to do so in the precinct they were assigned. On September 7 a judge in a Florida district court ordered [JURIST report] 32 Florida counties to provide sample Spanish language ballots in order to help Spanish-speaking citizens vote. President Donald Trump issued an executive order [JURIST report] on September 12 directing federal agencies to investigate instances of interference with US elections and to take measures against those involved.

Report Says Payday Lenders in Michigan have Made Over a Half a Billion Dollars Off Usurious Loans at 340% APR Targeting Poor Black & Latino Communities over the past 5 Years

High Anxiety Created by Elite Racists [and respite from it] is the Whip in the Hands of the Master that Motivates Blacks & Latinos in Racist System. 

From [HERE] Consumer advocates say strong reforms are needed to better regulate the payday lending industry in Michigan, and they just might have the data to prove it. 

A new report from the Center for Responsible Lending found that in the past five years, payday lenders have taken more than half a billion dollars in fees from consumers in Michigan, including $94 million in 2016. Senior Policy Specialist with the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan Jessica AcMoody said with annual percentage rates in the triple digits, low-income customers often struggle to repay loans on time. 

"The average fees equal about 340 percent APR right now. And 91 percent of payday loan borrowers in Michigan re-borrow within 60 days," AcMoody said. "So what we really need are better restrictions on these loans."

The report said more than two-thirds of payday loan stores in Michigan are owned by out-of-state lenders, which AcMoody explained means millions of dollars are leaving Michigan each year. According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the average payday loan customer takes out 10 loans over the course of 12 months. 

AcMoody said the research also reveals that payday lenders are specifically targeting Michigan communities with higher concentrations of people of color and those with lower incomes. 

"Payday loans are a high-cost solution to a short-term problem and they're really built to take advantage of borrower's financial vulnerability," she said. "So what they're doing is locating in communities where they can prey on financial vulnerable people. " 

Beyond educating consumers about payday lending, AcMoody contends policymakers need to examine APR caps, and reconsider measures to expand payday loan offerings. "A package of bills in the Senate would expand payday offerings and allow loans of up to $2,500 for up to two years with fees equivalent of up to 180 percent APR," AcMoody said. "So a $2,500 loan would end up costing the consumer over $8,000 at the time they pay it back." 

15 states and the District of Columbia have a rate cap of 36 percent or less on payday loans. AcMoody said alternative loan products are also needed to help people who need short-term financial assistance.

Revived Miami Gardens Lawsuit Says Wells Fargo Targeted Black Homeowners & Borrowers by Lending to them on Terms Less Favorable than Whites

From [HERE] Miami Gardens has filed an appeal in a case, in which the city alleged Wells Fargo used discriminatory lending practices against its residents.

Wells Fargo dodged a Fair Housing Act lawsuit from Miami Gardens back in June 2014 when a federal judge ruled the city had insufficient evidence to support claims of discriminatory lending. The suit alleged the San Francisco-based bank charged higher mortgage rates to Black and Hispanic borrowers compared to their white counterparts who were similarly situated. Miami Gardens claimed that in turn, this led to decreased property values and caused a wave of foreclosures during the 2008 housing crisis. Now the third largest Black-populated city in the country is reviving the fight after filing a notice of appeal with the U.S Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.  

“This city is appealing the case because we believe that the court got it wrong and failed to follow clearly established precedent,” said Miami Gardens City Attorney Sonja Dickens. 

Wells Fargo spokeswoman Michelle Palomino said the bank is prepared for the city’s appeal after its 2014 victory.

“We were pleased with the court’s decision in June to grant our motion for summary judgment and dismiss the city of Miami Gardens’ case against Wells Fargo,” said Palomino. “And, [we] will be prepared to respond to the city’s appeal. We will continue our focus on helping to expand homeownership opportunities in Florida and across the country.” 

Wells Fargo was not the only major bank on the city’s radar as the 2014 lawsuit also targeted JPMorgan, Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America for discriminatory behavior – all of which were dismissed.

Sixty-five percent of the population in Miami Gardens are homeowners, and the city has been working to increase those numbers. In April 2012, Miami Gardens purchased a property for $54,370 – ironically enough, from Wells Fargo. The purchase was a part of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, a federal resource that aims to provide shelter using revitalized homes. Miami Gardens was awarded $6.8 million.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, also a lawyer who has fought and won similar cases, said fighting discrimination lawsuits could be a tough battle.

“It is very difficult to win in these cases because the banks have very high-powered lawyers and spend a lot of money on litigation,” said Suarez. “These are cases that if [the bank] loses, it can cost them hundreds of millions of dollars, so they put a lot of resources into them.”

The mayor went on to say that a win in this case would send a pivotal message to large corporations.

“I think a win would be incredible, not only for the African-American and Hispanic communities but also for the cities themselves to push back when large institutions are discriminating against their residents,” said Suarez.

Wells Fargo is no stranger to this kind of controversy. In 2012, the big bank paid more than $175 million to settle similar discrimination allegations brought by the Justice Department. As a part of that deal, in which the bank did not admit wrongdoing, Wells Fargo settled comparable lawsuits filed by the state of Illinois and the city of Baltimore. Back in February 2018, the city of Sacramento accused Wells Fargo of illegal lending in minority and low-income communities where they also claim it reduced home values, limited property tax revenue and drove up foreclosures.

“If the city wins, it would mean that the banks involved will be held accountable for discriminatory lending practices,” said Dickens. “Specifically, they will be held accountable for targeting minority homeowners and lending to them on terms that are less favorable than others.”

No date has been set for both parties to present their arguments.

Instead of Heckling NFL Fans in the Parking Lot, PropaGandhi-zers Should Beg Congress to Eliminate “Qualified Immunity" [Law of the Jungle Accountability for Cops in their relations with Black People]

From [HERE] The doctrine of qualified immunity was conjured up by the US Supreme Court in 1982 and victims of rights violations have been paying the price for more than three decades. The doctrine was created by the Court, not by Congress. This is an important distinction, especially since qualified immunity directly contradicts the liability Congress created as an avenue of redress for citizens.

Congress specifically said anyone who uses governmental power to deprive others of rights can be sued.

Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress…

These were the only exceptions granted:

… except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable.

Exceptions for judges. That's it.

As it stands now, qualified immunity lets everyone from cops to federal agents to IRS investigators off the hook for violating the rights of citizens. It's not supposed to be this way. Qualified immunity reverses the expectations of Congress to give government employees an easy way out. The Supreme Court felt the lack of safety valve for government employees meant they'd be too intimidated by possible liability to make quick judgment calls while performing their duties.

Instead, the doctrine has encouraged government employees to engage in blatant rights violations, secure in the knowledge the court-established doctrine will get them off the hook.

They MARCHED carrYING coffins [in which they should put their beliefs in “authority,” “democracy,” “government” and in basing their struggle UPON the moral suasion of racists.].

David French, writing for the National Review, says it's time for qualified immunity to die. Its burial would allow the nation to go back to what Congress intended: an avenue of recourse for citizens whose rights have been violated by the government. The key linchpin in qualified immunity determinations is "clearly established law." But what does "clearly established" mean in the context of a QI defense? Almost nothing.

[T]he entire notion of “clearly established law” rests on a series of absurd, fantastical premises. Are we really to believe that a police officer doesn’t know he shouldn’t pound on the wrong door and blow away the innocent occupant* unless a court said so in a case, say, five years before? Do we really believe police officers and university administrators are diligently reading such cases as they are decided anyhow?

Also note how qualified immunity flips the meaning of the statute upside-down. Section 1983 is a law designed to protect citizens and help them secure their rights. It was not designed to protect the “vigorous exercise of official authority” but instead to restrain that authority.

*Refers to the case covered here.

Judge Don Willett, writing for the Fifth Circuit Appeals Court, pointed out the ridiculousness of relying on "clearly established law" to determine whether or not government employees should be held directly accountable for unquestionable violations of citizens' rights.

Plaintiffs must produce precedent even as fewer courts are producing precedent. Important constitutional questions go unanswered precisely because those questions are yet unanswered. Courts then rely on that judicial silence to conclude there’s no equivalent case on the books. No precedent = no clearly established law = no liability. An Escherian Stairwell. Heads defendants win, tails plaintiffs lose.

With few courts willing to draw the line in new cases, there's no precedent to look to when new troubling violations are alleged. The government can get a lawsuit dismissed in the first round of motions if there's no case directly on point in the jurisdiction handling the case. As Judge Willett pointed out, this only encourages novel rights violations, rather than deter future misconduct. To prevail on a QI motion to dismiss, a government defendant need only be the first to violate someone's rights in this manner.

Knowing that's the bar that must be hurdled to survive the initial round of motions in a civil rights lawsuits, future novel violations will likely never be converted into "clearly established law" cited by future litigants. Julian Sanchez's Twitter thread on the subject notes one side effect of three decades of qualified immunity is fewer civil rights lawsuits.

First time around, the right violated won’t be “clearly established,” and the official responsible will have qualified immunity. The second time very similar facts show up in court, though, the first case will have “clearly established” the right violated, eliminating immunity.

But think about how this effects incentives to litigate. If the specific harm you suffered isn’t “clearly established’ in your jurisdiction, you’re incurring the cost and hassle of a lawsuit, but you won’t recover damages. You’ll only allow the NEXT victim to recover.

The arguments for keeping the qualified immunity intact are weak. Holes have been poked in these by multiple lawyers and law profs, but the doctrine lives on, propped up by the parade of litigation that would certainly result if government employees were held directly responsible for their actions.

One of the weakest of the arguments is that the removal of qualified immunity would result in long stream of impoverished cops. As this amicus brief submitted for a QI-centric Supreme Court case points out, government employees are rarely, if ever, held directly accountable for their actions. It's almost always taxpayers paying other taxpayers for rights the government violated.

This concern is empirically unfounded. The widespread availability of indemnification already protects individual officers from ruinous judgments. A recent study shows that governments paid approximately 99.98 percent of the dollars recovered in lawsuits against police officers.

Qualified immunity lives on, and it seems unlikely the Supreme Court will revisit its own failure. That's not to say there's no chance it will happen or efforts like these are wasted. The Supreme Court recently punched a hole in the Third Party Doctrine -- another of its long-time favorites -- so it's conceivable a future ruling may substantially narrow the breadth of qualified immunity's scope. But as long as it remains in place, the public will continue to suffer for the government's sins.

Nearly 30 TV Shows About Law Enforcement/Soldiers in Fall Lineup: Uploading ‘Obedience to Authority as a Virtue,’ Belief in ‘Government as Our Protector, Savior’ & Other Viruses Into Our Minds

“You are taught to perceive extortion in a different way by all the propaganda that's been put into you.

I think the best author on the law or legal system who went to work at the United Nations and the best sociologist in the world was Jacques Ellul. Read his books. He points it out as it actually is. He said all the movies you've watched, all the detective series on television, hospital dramas and so on and courtroom dramas are all propaganda to elevate those system into your mind into a supernatural almost superhuman system so you kowtow down to it. You believe in it. You worship it. You feel inferior and you leave it all up to them, because these are institutions which are going to run your lives in the very near future.” - Alan Watt quoted by Dr. Blynd in FUNKTIONARY, which defines propaganda as follows:

Propaganda - a psychological technique and means by which the lawless confound the lawful (dwellers upon the land). 2) any message intended to influence whether true or false. 3) disinformation used as programming that in its absence wouldn't stand up itself nor stand up for itself by itself. The Jesuits were the ones who invented the word and the first to systematize its practice. Propaganda is memes distributed with an external anchor and an embedded carrier. Propaganda is to be used as subversion, which is the undermining or detachment of the loyalties of significant social groups and their transference to the symbols and institutions of the aggressor-oppressor. "It is a political necessity to destroy the African consciousness of colonialized Africans or African people." -Dr. Amos N. Wilson. As for the minds of the general public, the most sinister part of The Matrix in which we now live is that you have been cajoled and convinced to suppress your own free will and surrender to the manipulators who control not just your mind, but your entire reality. Edward Bernays, the father of modem propaganda, explained: "If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it... We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of... In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons— who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind." "Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all," -Michael Rivero.

Study Says High Rate of Police Killings is Causing Mental Health Issues Among Blacks [System of White Supremacy Requires Blacks to be Primarily Motivated by “Created Anxiety" & its Avoidance]

pe+--+poisin1.jpg

From [HERE] Boston University's School of Health and the University of Pennsylvania released a study that found the high rate of unarmed African Americans being killed at the hands of police has caused more incidents of depression, stress and other mental health issues among blacks. In other words, overwhelming police brutality is damaging the mental health of African Americans — even those who have no direct connection to men, women and teens who have lost their lives.

The use of deadly force by police against an unarmed black American “carries with it the weight of historical injustices and current disparities in the use of state violence against black Americans,” researchers concluded.

The study's findings aren't entirely new. In 2015, Berkeley law professor Franklin Zimring analyzed 1,100 killings by police and found that the death rates for African Americans (and Native Americans) were disproportionately higher than their populations. Both groups have a history of state-sponsored injustice in the U.S.  

Both groups also deal with some of the highest rates of mental health issues in the country. Between blacks and non-Hispanic whites, blacks are more likely to report serious psychological distress. Native Americans also report high levels of PTSD

Boston University and University of Pennsylvania researchers concluded that their findings support “recent calls to treat police killings as a public health issue.” They noted that failure to do so produces mental health issues and health problems:  “The observed adverse mental health spillover effects of police killings of unarmed black Americans could result from heightened perceptions of threat and vulnerability, lack of fairness, lower social status, lower beliefs about one’s own worth, activation of prior traumas, and identification with the deceased.” [MORE] [Such is a purpose of the system of racism/white supremacy, a system in which the majority of the world's white people participate.

ANXIETY IS THE WHIP. Here, please indulge us with the use of an analogy to the show Westworld to illustrate a reality. The show is set in a futuristic park where humans pay to be able to act out their darkest fantasies with humanoid robots, called 'hosts',  available to fulfill their requests. The androids are programmed or brainwashed by their makers. The creators are in the minds of the androids or hosts; beliefs and stories are put into their "minds" by their masters. [These androids are motivated or powered by voice control of the masters]. Their consciousness has been manufactured and their conduct is controlled in the interests of their makers - as such their consciousness is the source and product of their power relations & inequalities with the makers and guests. Initially the hosts are completely unaware of all this and perceive their role in Westworld as "normal." That is, the hosts have no true knowledge or memory of what they are and how they came to be. This situation is not unlike the racist programming given to Black people in the real world to control our minds with a false consciousness in the system of white supremacy/racism.

What is mind anyway? A false entity; your being is your real face, your original face. The mind is created by the society. [MORE] "Consciousness is the premier instrument of social control. Those who represent and exercise societal and cultural authority seek to shape and direct the conciseness of each of the society's and culture's members in ways which maintain their integrity and advance their interests." [MORE] "Osho explains that 'the conscious is cultivated by the society, it is a conditioning. The conscious means society inside you. It is a trick of society. This created mind creates a prison around you.' [MORE] Mind is also a social function. A wolf needs a mind for a society of wolves; a man needs a mind for a society of men. To exist in a particular society you need a particular mind.[MORE]

Like the androids in Westworld, the socially manufactured mind given to Blacks is one designed to serve white folks and to fulfill a subordinate role, which we are to perceive as normal. According to undeceiver Dr. Amos Wilson, "black consciousness and behavior under the various regimes of White domination are characterized by habitual thought patterns and behavioral tendencies which render them pliable to White authoritarian/authoritative social control with minimal resistance; which induce Blacks to accept their subordinate status as natural, perhaps actually to mispercieve their oppression as freedom." 

Unlike the hosts in Westworld, Black people are not motivated by voice control but through created anxiety and other "white instigated social controls." Wilson explains,"to be oppressed is to make how one feels or expects to feel, the measure of all things. To be oppressed is to be ruled through one's feelings and emotions. It is to be exquisitely exposed to and manipulated by a play on one's dreads and fears by one's oppressors; by a play on one's needs for respite from their terror; by a play on one's needs for catharsis, solace, and compensatory joy. Anxiety is the whip in the hand of the oppressor used to drive the oppressed to completion of their appointed rounds.

The ultimate power of White domination and social control resides in their ability to successfully intimidate subordinated Afrikans; to convince them of the inevitability of White supremacy; of the awesome invincibility of White power. The history of White-Black social relations has been one of unrelent­ing intimidation, terror, mental and physical abuse of Black peoples, White-on-Black violence; of endemic injustice, and of the unending, unrequited attempts by subordinate Afrikans to avoid, escape, or some way prevent, temper or ameliorate the horrendous aftereffects of these activities. Avoidance and escape from White-instigated anxieties preoccupy the conscious­ness and subconsciousness of oppressed Afrikans. This preoccupation pathologizes, i.e., imbalances, the Afrikan psyche. Consequently, even the "normal" Afrikan under White domina­tion is primarily motivated by the desire to escape — to actively or passively avoid or in some other way neutralize or alleviate the fearful effects of his oppression. By definition, White supremacy requires that Blacks be primarily motivated by anxiety and its avoidance in the interest of their White oppressors.

Under White supremacy the operative presence of anxiety in the individual and collective psyche is a necessary constant. . .

  ANXIETY AVOIDANCE/ESCAPISM THROUGH SUCH DEVICES AS ENTERTAINMENT SHOWCASED BY ELITES

ANXIETY AVOIDANCE/ESCAPISM THROUGH SUCH DEVICES AS ENTERTAINMENT SHOWCASED BY ELITES

It should be noted that in the subordinated Afrikan personali­ty much of the presence and operation of pathological anxiety is unconscious, i.e., unknown to its host. The subordinated Afrikan is hardly aware that his psyche, consciousness, and behavior have been subverted and misdirected by the eurocentrically-conditioned operation of anxiety and its related psychological after effects (other symptoms). White supremacy works most efficiently when subordinated Afrikans feel that they have freely chosen to think and behave the way they do when in actuality they have been subliminally compelled to do so by the psychopolitical machinations of their White oppressors. Thus, the subordinated Afrikan feels freest when he is most controlled. And his pursuit of apparent freedom is often the pursuit of unapparent enslave­ment.'

Wilson continues, "the ability of dominant Whites to socially manufacture or markedly influence Afrikan states of consciousness and conduct in the interest of perpetuating White supremacy, is both the source and product of the power relations and inequalities which inhere between these races. The White social manufacture of Black consciousness and behavior will end when the power differentials which make this process possible are equalized or reversed by the increased Black empowerment. This necessary equation or reversal of power relations begins when Afrikans come to understand the nature of power, its social origins and applications; when they recognize that they are as capable of its acquisition and disposition as are their European (and other ethnic group) counterparts; and when they consciously and deliberately choose to acquire and dispose of it in their own interests and in the defense of their own liberty."

Medical Journal Study Says Blacks Face the Greatest Risk of Being Injured by Cops Amongst All Californians [due to Racist System’s Goal of Placing Blacks in Greater Confinement]

  A major goal of the white supremacy system is the greater confinement of large numbers of non-white people. According to Neely Fuller, "the Racists make certain that non-white people exist under conditions that will most likely cause them to do things that will give the Racists an "excuse" to put them in Greater Confinement.

From [HERE] Black people face the greatest risk of receiving an injury during an encounter with California law enforcement, according to a new study.

The study was prompted when the Journal of the American Medical Association, which produced the paper, found that government databases that track deaths caused by police “all have significant and well-known methodological problems” such as voluntary reporting requirements or the failure to mention police involvement in homicides.

While there are independent sources that track fatal police shootings, such as The Guardian’s “The Counted” project, non-lethal injuries aren’t included, according to the study.

To find a way to track those law enforcement-caused injuries, JAMA researchers studied more than 92,000 “legal intervention injuries” experienced by California males 14 to 64 years old between Jan. 1, 2005 to Sept. 30, 2015.

“Legal intervention injuries” were defined in the study as “injuries inflicted by the police or other law-enforcing agents in the course of suppressing disturbances, maintaining order, arresting or attempting to arrest offenders or other legal action.”

Researchers used California because the state “has a central repository for these data and requires all hospitals to collect patient race or ethnicity,” according to the study.

The study found that “compared with their representation in the population, injuries were disproportionately high among younger age groups, black individuals, and Hispanic individuals,” according to the paper. “Black individuals were consistently at greatest risk of legal intervention injury per capita, although rates per arrest were broadly similar across race and ethnicity.”

Men ages 25 to 34 had nearly 32 percent of the injuries, but made up just 21 percent of the population. Black men made up nearly 19 percent of total injuries, but were just 7 percent of the population. Hispanic men had 39 percent of injuries and made up 37 percent of the population.

“Our findings suggest disparities in the rate of injury from legal intervention for different racial groups but do not identify the cause,” the study reported.

The report also did not determine whether injuries caused by law enforcement qualified as excessive force, a term the study dubbed subjective.

Despite that, the study determined that “black individuals have much higher rates of injury per population than other groups, contributing to concerns about racial disparities in the police use of force,” the study found. “Our results indicate that much of the difference can be attributed to higher arrest rates for black individuals and therefore greater exposure to legal intervention.”

Despite the increased risk of injury experienced by black people, the study found that law enforcement-caused injuries, and injuries involving firearms particularly, decreased over the 10-year period that was examined.

The study concluded that decline could be attributed to evolving police procedures requiring an emergency room visit “following use of force incidents.” It might also reflect jail policies requiring examination prior to booking.

“Increasing use of tasers might have contributed to the corresponding decrease in firearm-related injuries,” the study found.

Medical Expert says White Man was Tortured to Death in Gruesome "Execution" or Murder by Government [Tennessee Death Row is 46% Black]

From [HERE] Billy Ray Irick was tortured to death during his August 9, 2018 execution in Tennessee, according to one the nation's leading anesthesiologists.

In an affidavit submitted to the Tennessee Supreme Court on September 6 as part of an appeal filed by state death-row prisoners challenging Tennessee’s execution process, anesthesiologist Dr. David Lubarsky, the Vice Chancellor for Human Health Sciences at the University of California-Davis Health, said Irick was not properly anesthetized during his execution and experienced the torturous effects of the second and third lethal-injection drugs while still conscious.

Lubarsky, who previously testified during a lower court hearing on the prisoners’ lethal-injection challenge, examined witness descriptions of Irick's execution and concluded “to a reasonable degree of medical certainty” that Irick “was aware and sensate during his execution and would have experienced the feeling of choking, drowning in his own fluids, suffocating, being buried alive, and the burning sensation caused by the injection of the potassium chloride.”

Witnesses reported that Irick choked, moved his head, and strained his forearms against restraints, all of which, Dr. Lubarsky said, are signs that he was able to feel the effects of the drugs.

Lubarsky also noted that prison officials taped Irick's hands—a step unnecessary to the execution because Irick’s wrists were already restrained—preventing witnesses from observing movements of the fingers and hands that would have been “a clear indicator” that he was not anesthetized.

The second and third drugs used in Tennessee are known to be excruciatingly painful if a prisoner is not fully unconscious. A court pleading filed by Kelley Henry, an attorney representing Tennessee’s death-row prisoners in their legal challenge to the execution protocol, graphically described the execution process.

“This case is about whether it is constitutional to inject a human with a small bottle of acid—which will destroy the lining of their lungs and cause them to drown in blood—and then to inject them with a paralytic that will leave them conscious but expressionless—unable to speak or scream—feeling as if they are buried alive, and finally to stop their heart with an injection that will, in their last minute of life, cause them to chemically burn alive.”

Prior to Irick’s execution, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented from a denial of a stay, writing, “In refusing to grant Irick a stay, the Court today turns a blind eye to a proven likelihood that the State of Tennessee is on the verge of inflicting several minutes of torturous pain on an inmate in its custody, while shrouding his suffering behind a veneer of paralysis.”

Records from Irick’s execution also indicate that the state violated its own execution protocol by failing to prepare an additional dose of midazolam, the drug used to sedate him. New filings in the lethal-injection suit said that the state’s actions showed that the “protocol is meaningless” and “creates a substantial risk of severe pain and suffering.”

Tennessee prosecutors filed a response on September 13 asking the court not to consider Lubarsky's declaration, saying his opinion was based on hearsay and hadn't been subject to cross-examination. The Tennessee high court has removed the case from the state’s intermediate appellate court and set an expediting briefing schedule, an unusual move that Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Sharon Lee criticized as a “rocket docket” that undermines the possibility of meaningful appellate review. On September 14, the Tennessee Supreme Court issued an order deferring a ruling until after oral argument on the appeal of the lethal injection challenge on October 3.

US Customs & Border Patrol Cop Arrested for Serial Killing Murders of 4 Latino Women in Texas

From [HERE] and [HERE] A United States Border Patrol agent was arrested in South Texas on Saturday in connection to a calculated killing spree that left four people dead in recent weeks around the city of Laredo, the authorities said.

Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar said police officers arrested the agent, Juan David Ortiz, early on Saturday morning after a woman who claimed she had been abducted by Mr. Ortiz escaped half-clothed and sought help at a gas station in Laredo.

“We consider this man to be a serial killer who was preying on one victim after another,” Sheriff Cuellar said. “Fortunately, he’s now been apprehended.”

According to the Webb County Sheriff’s Office, Ortiz has confessed to four homicides as of Saturday afternoon. [MORE]

The case is the latest in a series of recent gruesome episodes involving Border Patrol agents, and comes at a time when protesters and some Democratic lawmakers are seeking to curb the actions of immigration officials. Some are calling for an end to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which was created in 2003. Customs and Border Protection, another agency in the Department of Homeland Security, has also come under fierce criticism.

Mr. Ortiz, 35, was found hiding in a truck in the parking lot of a hotel in Laredo, a city of about 250,000 people on the southwest border with Mexico and about 145 miles from San Antonio. He was arrested on suspicion of evading arrest. District Attorney Isidro Alaniz of Webb County said the authorities were prepared to also charge Mr. Ortiz with four counts of murder and one count of aggravated kidnapping.

Mr. Alaniz said Mr. Ortiz is suspected of shooting the four victims, two of whom were identified on Saturday as Melissa Ramirez, 29, and Claudine Luera, 42. Ms. Luera was found still alive but in critical condition on Thursday near a stretch of Texas Highway 255, but later died at a nearby hospital. All are Latino women.

Another female victim remained unidentified and was referred to as Jane Doe, Mr. Alaniz said. The fourth appeared to be a transgender woman, but authorities referred to her as John Doe. Mr. Alaniz said he believed that all of the victims worked as prostitutes in the Laredo area.

“At this time we believe the suspect was acting alone,” Mr. Alaniz said, describing Mr. Ortiz as a supervisory agent who had worked as a Border Patrol agent for a decade.

Mr. Alaniz said authorities tracked down Mr. Ortiz after a woman, also described as working as a prostitute, escaped after having been abducted. She claimed that the agent, a married father of two young children, had torn off her blouse before she could run away from his vehicle. She ran until she found a police officer at a nearby gas station.

She then described the suspect to the officer and provided details about his vehicle and his home, Mr. Alaniz said. He said the woman told authorities that she grew suspicious of the agent after asking him about the spate of killings.

Andrew Meehan, the assistant commissioner for public affairs at the Border Patrol, said the agency was fully cooperating with investigators in the case. He said it was the agency’s policy to not comment on details of a current investigation, but added, “criminal action by our employees is not, and will not be tolerated.”

Mr. Ortiz’s arrest came on the heels of a case in April in which authorities in Laredo arrested Ronald Anthony Burgos Aviles, also a supervisor for the Border Patrol, and charged him with killing a woman with whom he was romantically involved and her 1-year-old son.

Two years ago, a senior Border Patrol agent stationed farther north up the border in Del Rio, Tex., was taken into custody and charged with distributing child pornography and attempting to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity. Federal prosecutors said the agent, Salvador Contreras, 50, sent child-porn images to an undercover agent whom Mr. Contreras believed was the mother of 8-year-old and 14-year-old girls. He had expressed, prosecutors alleged, a desire to engage in sexual conduct with both girls and had made arrangements to do so. Mr. Contreras, who was later sentenced to serve 11 years in a federal prison, had called himself a sex addict who was just “looking for his next high,” according to prosecutors.

In another case, from 2014, a Border Patrol agent in Texas kidnapped, attacked and sexually assaulted three undocumented immigrants: a woman and two teenage girls from Honduras. The agent, Esteban Manzanares, killed himself as officers closed in on his South Texas home.

Customs and Border Protection must annually report to Congress all cases of reported sexual abuse by its employees, a requirement prompted by media reports of sexual assault allegations within the agency.

In its most recent report in 2016, the agency showed that from October 2014 to September 2015 there were 52 allegations of sexual abuse and sexual assault by Customs and Border Protection employees, including Border Patrol agents. Many of the allegations stemmed from on-duty cases involving people the employees had apprehended.

The majority of those 52 allegations were found to be either unsubstantiated, not sustained, unfounded or exonerated. But 10 of the 52 allegations were found to have merit and were substantiated or sustained. The report said the employees in the substantiated cases either resigned, had been charged, disciplined or were pending disciplinary action.

Sacramento Police Release Video from 10 Body Cameras but the Moment White Cops Shot Black Man Hiding in Stairwell the Camera was “Inadvertently" Turned Off

From [HERE] The Sacramento Police Department has released video of the officers who fatally shot Darell Richards, a black-Hmong 19-year-old, in the backyard of a Curtis Park home on the morning of September 6.

The footage culminates when a police dog locates Richards hiding underneath a staircase. Two SWAT officers approach him, then shout "Show me your hands!" and "Put the gun down!" before firing several shots.

Police say Richards pointed a gun at the officers in the seconds before the fatal shooting. The video footage released on Friday does not capture this moment, and one of the officers body cameras was allegedly not turned on during the moment they opened fire. Officers found a black pellet gun, which looks like a handgun, at the scene.

“During the shooting, we do not have footage from one of the second officers,” Sgt. Vance Chandler [racist suspect in photo] said, adding that the department is investigating why equipment may have “inadvertently” hit a button and turned off the camera.

sacramento cops racist suspect.jpg

Law enforcement had arrived in the area several hours earlier, just after 11:30 p.m. on September 5, after receiving a call about a man brandishing a gun near Broadway and Land Park Drive.

A 911 call released on Friday describes the suspect, allegedly Richards: “There’s a man with a gun — I don’t know if it’s a real gun, a play gun — and he’s got a mask on his face.”

Video posted on the police department’s YouTube channel Friday shows an officer encounter Richards near Broadway and 20th Street. The officer attempts to detain him, but California Highway Patrol airplane footage shows Richards fleeing into the nearby Curtis Park neighborhood and eventually hop a fence into a home’s backyard.

Unlike the fatal police shooting of Stephon Clark this past March, officers did not pursue him. Instead, police say they formed a perimeter around the area, and a SWAT team began searching for Richards around 1:30 a.m.

The officers fire at Richards at 3:12 a.m. Seven minutes after the shooting, officers finally approached him, recovering the pellet gun and a small blade. Five minutes later, they began administering CPR.

Friday’s release of police records includes 10 body-worn camera videos, two surveillance videos, three CHP aircraft videos and three audio files, including the original 911 call. The airplane video does not include the moment of the shooting, although Chandler says that his department has made public all footage it received from CHP.

Police also released a 13-minute video featuring Sgt. Vance Chandler, who describes the incident and shooting from the department’s point-of-view.

Tanya Faison, founder of the local Black Lives Matter chapter, says that none of the records confirm that Richards pointed a gun at officers.

“The video shows us absolutely no proof,” Faison said. “All the narrative that the police sent out — that he pointed a gun at officers, so therefore they had to kill him — none of that visible in any of the video, so we still don’t know what happened.”

On Tuesday, Mayor Darrell Steinberg called the shooting a tragedy. “But each of these incidents need to seen on their own facts,” he said, adding that it appeared that Richards “was waving some sort of a gun.”

Police say the two officers who shot the man have 17 and 11 years of experience with the department. They were placed on administrative leave last week.

Lawsuit Says Forensic Evidence Proves Tyre King Was Running Away & Wasn't a Threat when Racist Suspect Columbus Cop Fatally Shot Black 13 Year Old

columbus mayor.jpg

From [HERE] Witnesses say that the white police officer who killed a black 13-year-old used a racial slur after firing and that a toy gun the eighth-grader had wasn't visible when the confrontation occurred, according to a federal civil rights lawsuit filed Friday on the second anniversary of the shooting.

The lawsuit filed by Tyre King's grandmother challenges the police account, characterizing his death as the result of excessive force, racial discrimination and an alleged failure by the police department to properly investigate and discipline officers for racially motivated or unconstitutional behavior.

  FOR SHOCK VALUE RACIST SUSPECT FOCUSES THE PUBLIC’S ATTENTION TO THE BB GUN ALLEGEDLY FOUND NEAR KING. AS OPPOSED TO FOCUSING ON WHETHER IT WAS EVER POINTED AT THE RACE SOLDIER. WILL THE CASE TURN ON DETAILS & FACTS OR WHETHER RACIST SUSPECT JURORS BELIEVE A RACIST SUSPECT COP?

Officer Bryan Mason, Police Chief Kim Jacobs [racist suspect in photo] and the city are named as defendants in the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages.

By "tacitly authorizing" their behavior, "the policymakers and those responsible for hiring, training and supervision of police officers within the City of Columbus acted negligently, recklessly, intentionally, willfully, wantonly, knowingly and with deliberate indifference to the serious safety needs of the citizens of Columbus, including Tyre King," the lawsuit said.

The family reiterated had requested an independent investigation and called upon the Columbus police division and Franklin County prosecutor’s office, which has jurisdiction over the city, to be removed from the current probe of Tyre’s death.

columbus cops racist suspect.jpg

“The Columbus police department, the City of Columbus and most importantly Tyre King and his family deserve the benefit of an investigation from a law enforcement agency that has no direct impact from the outcome of that investigation,” the statement said.

A Franklin County grand jury declined to indict Mason, who has since returned to duty in a different area of the city.

Police have said Tyre was in a group of young men who robbed a man of $10 at gunpoint, and Mason was responding.

Mason previously told investigators that Tyre tried to pull what appeared to be a real firearm from his waistband and said he fired at the teen when he saw a laser sight on the weapon and feared being shot. It turned out to be a BB gun that police later determined was inoperable.

Mason also said the teen didn't comply with the officer's commands to "get down."

Mason has said that Tyre spun to his right after the first shot. Mason told investigators:

“When I fired my gun at the second suspect, had had just drawn a gun from his waistband and I believed he was going to shoot me. I was in fear for my life at that time. I was giving repeated, loud commands and pointed my gun at him. As the suspect forcefully tugged on the grip of his handgun to pull it from his front waistband, I was still ordering him to get on the ground. When he did pull the gun out of his waistband, he raised it up in front of his torso with the barrel angled downward toward the west/northwest. In that instant, I could clearly see a laser sight or light attached to the bottom of the barrel of the gun, which appeared to be a black semi-automatic pistol. From the suspect’s actions and his failure to comply with my commands, I believed he intended to shoot me and I fired my gun at him.”

Another key witness in the case, Demetrius Braxton said that the officers called them a racial slur, saying they were “dumb niggers” for deciding to run. [MORE]

No body cameras were worn by officers during the incident because Columbus cops don’t use them.

Mason had been involved in three previous shootings and had been cleared of wrongdoing in each case, including another fatality.

Records show Tyre was shot three times, including in the head and torso. An attorney for his family has argued the results indicate he was running away and wasn't a threat when he was shot. A forensic pathologist who examined his body for his family reached the same conclusion.

“Based on the location and the direction of the wound paths it is more likely than not that Tyre King was in the process of running away from the shooter or shooters when he suffered all three gunshot wounds,” the examiner, Dr Francisco Diaz, said, according to a statement from the family

Diaz found that Tyre, who the examiner noted was 5ft tall and weighed less than 100lbs, died from three gunshot wounds, “any of which could be determined to have been cause of death”, according to the family’s statement. The wounds were found on his temple, collarbone and the left flank, the statement said.

Diaz is an assistant professor of pathology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, according to his LinkedIn page, and since 2001 he has worked as a medical examiner in Wayne County, Michigan. [MORE] and [MORE]

After being shot by police, paramedics initially arrived to find 13-year old Tyre King in handcuffs with a pulse.
