More than 40,000 Immigration Court Hearings Canceled Since Government Shutdown

From [Jurist] The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) of Syracuse University reported on Monday that 42,726 scheduled immigration court hearings had been canceled throughout the US as of January 11 due to the government shutdown.

The largest number of cases comes from California, with 9,424 cases canceled. New York has canceled 5,320 cases, and Texas has canceled 5,141 cases. If the shutdown continues until February 1, the total number of cancelled cases will reach about 108,112. If the shutdown continues until March 1, that number will increase to 185,071. The number will increase by roughly 20,000 cases per week as the shutdown progresses.

The cancellations add to the already large backlog of immigration cases before the court. As of the end of November, there was a backlog of 809,041 cases. It may take three or four years before canceled cases can be rescheduled.

Several organizations have filed lawsuits against the Trump administration due to the partial government shutdown that began December 22, mostly over the requirement to continue working without pay. This includes air traffic controllers and National Treasury Employees Union in January, and the American Federation of Government Employees in December. The center of the shutdown is the debate over the allocation of $5.7 billion for a border wall along the southern border of the US.

Suit says After an Unlawful Stop, White La Salle Cops Falsely Arrested a Black ex-Marine for DUI, Took her Blood Sample at Hospital & Subjected Her to Degrading, Violent Strip Search in Cell

la salle county cops 2.jpg

From [HERE] In the video, three LaSalle County Sheriff’s deputies can be seen throwing a woman onto a bench and then onto the floor of a jail cell and forcibly removing her pants as the woman — a Marine Corps veteran — screams loudly.

“What are you doing, what are you doing, what are you doing?” the woman yells in desperation during the strip search, which a newly filed federal lawsuit called “demeaning, dehumanizing, undignified, humiliating, terrifying, embarrassing, and degrading.”

The lawsuit — which seeks more than $1 million in damages — claims the arrest that led to the search and the search itself were illegal. It also alleges deputies knew the actions were taken in error, so they tried to conceal the evidence of their misconduct by deleting a video of what happened.

Zandrea Askew, a 28-year-old woman who was honorably discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps in 2015, says that she was sitting in her parked car on a street in LaSalle County in the early hours of Jan. 20, 2017. The suit does not identify the city or town where she was picked up.

It was then, she alleges, that two LaSalle County sheriff’s officers approached her and made her perform field sobriety tests, despite her showing no signs of intoxication and having no warrants for her arrest.

After passing the field sobriety tests, she was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of drugs and was taken to a local hospital, the suit alleges. There deputies tried “to obtain a blood sample” from Askew with no legal justification, the suit says.

All the while, Askew was cooperative and respectful to the deputies, the suit states.

From the hospital, she was taken to the LaSalle County Jail in Ottawa, which is about 80 miles from Chicago. Once there, the suit states, at least three female sheriff’s deputies dragged her into a cell, threw her to the ground and “unreasonably and deliberately attacked and restrained [Askew] causing injury to [her body]” as several more deputies looked on, the suit states.

While she was restrained, three deputies “forcibly and maliciously” strip searched Askew, violently pulling her hair in the process, she alleges. The cell she was in was also equipped with video surveillance.

Four minutes of surveillance footage provided to the Sun-Times shows two deputies leading Askew into a cell and another following close behind.

“You have one chance to cooperate with us and then we are going to be taking your clothes off off of you ourselves,” one deputy can be heard saying on the video.

“Are you going to undress yourself?” the deputy asks. When Askew doesn’t answer, the deputy says: “Don’t just look at me like I’m stupid. I’m asking you a question.”

As Askew faces the cell wall, one deputy suddenly throws her onto a bench and then onto the floor. The deputies can then be seen removing Askew’s pants.

Throughout the incident Askew screams “what are you doing?” several times.

“The Officers’ conduct in stripping Plaintiff of her clothing was intentionally demeaning, dehumanizing, undignified, humiliating, terrifying, embarrassing, and degrading,” the suit states.

Later, several unidentified officers and employees of the sheriff’s office “attempted to delete and/or destroy the video recording of the assault and stripping of the Plaintiff,” the suit states. “However, despite these efforts, a restored version of the video was recovered and disclosed to Plaintiff by the LaSalle County State’s Attorney’s Office.”

Askew’s attorney, Terry Ekl, noted in the complaint that Illinois law prohibits law enforcement officers from strip searching suspects arrested for misdemeanor offenses — such as driving under the influence of drugs — “unless there is a reasonable belief that the individual is concealing a weapon or a controlled substance.”

Ekl said the officers “had no reasonable belief” that Askew was hiding a weapon or drugs.

Askew was soon charged with driving under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest. Eighteen months later, the LaSalle County State’s Attorney dismissed both charges and wrote “that there was no probable cause” for Askew’s arrest, the suit states.

The 11-count suit alleges a host of Fourth Amendment violations, including unlawful detention, false arrest, excessive force, violations of due process, failure to intervene and malicious prosecution.

LaSalle County, the sheriff and seven sheriff’s deputies were named as defendants. A representative from the LaSalle County State’s Attorney’s Office, which represents the county in civil litigation, could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Govt Seeks to Dismiss Suit Claiming Trump is Underfunding the US Census to Undercount & Underrepresent Blacks, Latinos & Asians [and to Enable Delusional Whites to Feel Like a Majority]

Destroying the Illusion of Representative Democracy. From [AssociatedPress] Government attorneys on Monday urged a federal judge in Maryland to throw out a lawsuit that claims inadequate funding and staffing for the U.S. Census Bureau will lead to a massive undercount of blacks and other racial and ethnic minorities in 2020.

U.S. District Court Judge Paul Grimm didn’t immediately rule after hearing arguments from attorneys representing the Census Bureau and the NAACP.

Prince George’s County, Maryland, a predominantly black county in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., joined the civil rights group in suing the Census Bureau and President Donald Trump last March.

The NAACP claims poor planning for the nation’s first-ever digital census will exacerbate undercounts and leave the 2020 Census vulnerable to cyberattack.

Government lawyers argue that the NAACP’s concerns about census preparations are premature and based on nothing more than conjecture.

Justice Department attorney Stephen Ehrlich told the judge there has never been such a sweeping challenge to census procedures at such an early stage of the process. He added that the NAACP’s lawsuit alleges “entirely speculative injuries that may never occur.”

“They want a fishing expedition because they don’t know what their claims are,” Ehrlich said.

DR. FRANCES CRESS WELSING NOTES, “The Color-Confrontation theory further postulates that whites are vulnerable to their sense of numerical inadequacy. This inadequacy is apparent in their drive to divide the vast majority of non-whites into fractional, as well as frictional,  minorities.  This is viewed as a funda­mental behavioral response of whites to their own minority status. The white "race" has structured and manipulated their own thought processes and conceptual patterns, as well as those of the entire non-white world majority, so that the real numerical minority (whites) illusionally feels and represents itself as the world's majority, while the true numerical majority (non-whites) illusionally feels and views itself as the minority. Interest­ingly, the white collective, whenever discussing the question of color, never discusses any of its own particular ethnic groups as minorities, but constantly focuses on the various ethnic, language and religious groups of non-white peoples as minorities. Then great efforts are made to initiate conflict between these arbitrary groups. This is one of the key methods by which a minority can remain in power. The "divide, frictionalize and conquer" pattern, observable throughout history wherever non-whites are confronted by whites, results primarily from whites' sense of color deficiency and secondarily from their sense of numerical inadequacy.“ [   MORE   ]

The NAACP’s suit says failing to fully count blacks has been a persistent problem, with a 2.1 percent net undercount of blacks in the 2010 census. But the group claims the Census Bureau has never been so ill-prepared.

The Census Bureau operated without a permanent director for months before the Senate voted earlier this month to confirm Trump’s pick for the position. The NAACP’s suit says a hiring freeze has limited the bureau’s ability to fill other staff vacancies. The suit also says the bureau canceled important field tests last year in Puerto Rico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington state.

“Despite these imminent threats to the accuracy and integrity of the 2020 Census, the Bureau has been operating on the cheap, without sufficient funding to address its many challenges,” the suit says.

The results of the U.S. census are far more important than most Americans realize. Census data are the starting point for redistricting and reapportionment – adding and removing House districts from states as population changes dictate – not to mention the distribution of billions of dollars in federal funding. Housing assistance, highway maintenance and Medicare/Medicaid are just three examples of programs that distribute federal dollars to states in the form of grants based on census results. Undercounting populations guarantees that over the next decade, states will be strapped for funding in these areas.

And that is likely to happen if Republicans in Congress get their way. Under cover of the non-stop Trump circus, they are quietly working behind the scenes to ensure that the 2020 census fails – and fails to their advantage. [MORE]

Government lawyers argue the NAACP concerns about undercounting leading to lost federal funding and lost legislative seats are “future harms” that can’t occur before the 2020 census has been conducted.

Jacob Alderdice, one of the attorneys representing the NAACP, said ruling out a lawsuit before the census is completed would make it too late to remedy all of the problems.

“This is an urgent matter that is ripe for resolution,” he said.

The judge said it’s clear there has never been a completely accurate census.

“It’s just impossible to do given how fluid our society is,” he said.

The judge also noted that Congress and the courts have been “extremely deferential” to the Census Bureau’s role in deciding its methods and means.

The judge instructed the attorneys to file post-hearing briefs on Jan. 21 before he rules on the government’s request for him to dismiss the lawsuit.

The judge asked Ehrlich about the effect of the partial government shutdown on the Census Bureau. Ehrlich said the agency has the funds to continue operating through February without a disruption.

Big Boi and Travis Scott will join Maroon 5 in this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. For a minute the NFL panicked that in a show of solidarity Black entertainers would turn their back to the NFL, rendering its halftime show as all white as the NFL head coaching ranks but a few coin-operated SNiggering entertainers saved the day.

Many acts have turned down the halftime show this year in support of Colin Kaepernick and other players who have taken a knee during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice. An online petition urges for all three acts performing to take a knee in protest.

Alleviation Attempts Have No Effect on White Supremacy. Jewish scholar Raul Hilberberg notes that prior to the Nazi extermination of the Jews, the Jews made various "alleviation attempts" in their failed resistance to white supremacy. Under the heading of alleviation are included petitions, protection payments, ransom arrangements, anticipatory compliance, relief, rescue, salvage, reconstruction-- in short, all those activities which are designed to avert danger, or, in the event that force has already been used, to diminish its effects. It should also be noted here that Jews in Germany were considered ‘not pure white"‘ and therefore had to be destroyed. Additionally, German Jews considered themselves to be fully integrated members of German society. [MORE]

How Racist Suspect Police, Prosecutors & Judges Project & then Introject Criminality Onto Blacks & Use Misdemeanors to Turn Innocent Black People Into Criminals

fuck+poor.jpg

From [TheIntercept] GAIL ATWATER AND her two young children were driving home from soccer practice in March 1997 when they realized that a rubber bat that was usually affixed to the window of their pickup truck was missing. It was a favorite toy of Atwater’s 3-year-old, Mac, so the trio turned around, retracing their route to see if they could find it.

Atwater slowed to a speed of roughly 15 miles per hour as she cruised through Lago Vista, the lakeside bedroom community just northwest of Austin, Texas. And although state law required passengers in the front seat of a truck to wear a seatbelt, Atwater told her kids they could unbuckle themselves so they could look outside for the toy. There was no one else on the road, and she was driving very slowly.

Then, she saw the police car. She knew she was likely to be pulled over, which she found reasonable, she later told the New York Times. Under state law, driving without a seatbelt was punishable by ticket and carried a $50 fine.

But when Lago Vista police officer Barton Turek got to her driver side window, he jabbed his finger at her and began yelling. She asked him to lower his voice because he was scaring her children. He told her that she was going to jail.

He cuffed her and put her in the back of his squad car. (A neighbor who had heard about the disturbance out on the street came and took the children home before Atwater was carted off.) Atwater was booked into jail and then later released on $310 bond. She ultimately pleaded no contest to the seatbelt violation and was fined $50. And she paid an additional $110 to get back her truck, which had been towed.

Atwater was incensed by the arrest. Under state law, the seatbelt violation was a fine-only misdemeanor offense, meaning it was not punishable by jail time. Yet she’d been taken to jail for the violation. Atwater sued the city, claiming Turek had violated her constitutional protection against unlawful seizure. The case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and in 2001, Atwater lost.

The ruling was astonishing to many, in part because it demonstrated a serious misunderstanding of the nation’s misdemeanor criminal justice system. Justice David Souter wrote that, during oral argument, Atwater’s attorney was asked whether he had any other examples of “comparably foolish, warrantless misdemeanor arrests,” and that he offered “only one.” Souter wrote that while there were certainly additional examples out there, “just as surely the country is not confronting anything like an epidemic of unnecessary minor-offense arrests.”

What Souter wrote was wrong then and remains so today. The misdemeanor criminal justice system makes up the vast majority of the nation’s criminal court dockets; it is wide-ranging, encompassing not only violent crimes like domestic violence, but also myriad offenses where there is little, if any, meaningful criminal activity — things like jaywalking and loitering. It has criminalized millions of people and jailed countless, even when the ultimate punishment for the crime carries no threat of jail time, a practice which the Supreme Court’s ruling endorsed.

The consequences of even the most minor encounter with the misdemeanor system are serious — they can lead to lost jobs and benefits, including food stamps, housing, or educational support — and yet in many respects, the system has avoided much scrutiny. At least until now. In her groundbreaking new book “Punishment Without Crime: How Our Massive Misdemeanor System Traps the Innocent and Makes America More Unequal,” Alexandra Natapoff, a law professor at the University of California, Irvine, brings the misdemeanor system into clear focus. In an interview with The Intercept, she explained why the system has escaped widespread scrutiny and challenged us to rethink the ways in which we criminalize conduct.

Why hasn’t this book been written before?

Misdemeanors have always been the chump change of the American criminal system. We call them “petty.” We call them “minor.” They are the way that we punish people when we think that their offenses are not serious enough to warrant felony treatment. Not only felony punishment, but also the due process and attention that goes with prosecuting and adjudicating serious crimes. In writing this book, it was shocking to me how little attention we have paid to this vast swath of criminal justice work that the state engages in.

Can you talk about the difference between a major and minor misdemeanor, how they operate, and why that matters?

The misdemeanor system represents 80 percent of the state criminal dockets in this country, so of course it’s enormous and ranges from what we might think of as serious misdemeanors — like domestic assault, driving under the influence, crimes that we have come to a consensus that pose real harms, real threats, and that represent conduct that can fairly be called wrongful. At the other end of the spectrum, we see crimes or offenses that don’t seem culpable or blameworthy or harmful at all. We sometimes refer to them as “order-maintenance” crimes or “quality of life” crimes; sometimes they fall into the rubric of “broken windows.” Offenses like loitering or trespassing or disorderly conduct. They can include jaywalking, spitting, littering, all kinds of minor, so-called order offenses that are not about whether anybody did anything wrong or bad or harmful. These crimes are about something else.

We need a misdemeanor system that is capable of punishing low-level crime in a way that’s proportionate and fair, but our misdemeanor system has ballooned to encompass all kinds of other things: to create tools for police to engage in order-maintenance regulation of high crime and/or poor neighborhoods of color; to enforce gentrification boundaries; to collect information; to meet performance metrics in their own department. The misdemeanor system has always exceeded its core purpose of crime control and always reached into the outer corners of social control and social regulation.

How has this system played into the criminalization of race?

We sweep people of color into the criminal system with that first order-maintenance arrest. We give all those African-American men their first arrest, their first criminal conviction, their first experience in jail — all too often through order-maintenance offenses that are not harmful, that are not culpable or morally wrong — and we let the misdemeanor system do that work of criminalizing based on race.

Can you talk about the connection between low-level policing and future encounters with the criminal justice system?

We sometimes say things like, “The criminal system doesn’t just go after criminals, it makes and defines criminals.” Looking carefully at the misdemeanor system shows exactly how it works. Low-level policing concentrated in low-income communities of color will impose criminal marks on people of color, predominately African-American men. Once marked, those individuals have now been flagged by the criminal system in ways that will affect future encounters with the criminal system. So the system, in many ways, is responding to its own conclusions about where to police, who to stop and frisk, who to go after, who to arrest in ways that then determine the criminal system’s own decisions about what is a high-crime neighborhood, what is a high-crime population, who is suspicious, who looks like a criminal.

You write at one point that being charged with a misdemeanor is now a completely normal part of life — like buying an SUV, going to a four-year college, or going to the doctor with the flu. That is really staggering. What does that mean for the criminal justice system and for the country?

One of the things that was stunning to me is how much a normal part of life being charged with, and convicted of, a misdemeanor has become. How many millions of people just encounter this experience as a matter of course and then have to cope with it for the rest of their lives. I think what it means for the country is that we need to grapple more profoundly with how much we rely on our criminal institutions to do the work of government.

We know that approximately a quarter of the American adult population has a criminal record. That’s a terrible public policy. It impedes people’s lives, their livelihood, their education, their work, their families. It’s a wasteful and costly and harsh way of engaging in government, and I think the commonness of misdemeanors and just how cavalierly we rely on the misdemeanor system to do so much work should give us pause.

And the whole system, writ large, really incentivizes the guilty plea. Could you explain that?

Every official player in the misdemeanor system has its own influential role. Misdemeanor policing is its own special phenomenon. Misdemeanor prosecution has its own key challenges and failings. Public defenders, with their enormous misdemeanor caseloads, pose a special challenge. Misdemeanor courts and judges themselves often do not play the judicial, supervisory role that we expect them to play.

The confluence of pressures incentivizes guilty pleas for every single player in the system. It puts pressure on prosecutors to manipulate the system in order to get guilty pleas quickly. It puts pressure on public defenders to cede to guilty pleas on behalf of their client. It puts pressure on judges to validate those hundreds of thousands of guilty pleas that pass before them without checking the factual bases, without checking whether the law has been followed.

Of course, defendants are under the most extraordinary pressure to plead guilty. I think it has become increasingly well-known that bail is often out of reach for low-income and poor individuals, which means they will languish in jail until their cases are resolved, which means they are under more pressure than their wealthy counterparts to plead guilty, and often do.

The high plea rates in the misdemeanor system are themselves an artifact, at least in part, of bail practices, which is an extraordinary thing to admit: to admit that in the American criminal system, convictions are a function not of evidence, not of culpability, not of true guilt, but of bail processes — of money. It’s an extraordinary admission of failure.

This seems like a nearly perfect system for convicting the innocent.

It is a setup for a wrongful conviction because it’s fast, it’s sloppy; because the evidence is not scrutinized, because there is such an enormous pressure on defendants to plead guilty, and such enormous pressure on all the official players to get them to plead guilty regardless of the evidence. Indeed, much of the time, the evidence will never be checked, and the pressure to plead will overwhelm what we think of as the true function of the criminal system, which is to actually figure out whether anybody has committed a crime or not.

In a section of the book about change, you invoke the “veil of ignorance” test. Do you think that we should use this in deciding how to rework the system?

Maybe the most important insight from thinking about misdemeanors is its invitation to empathy. It’s a reminder that nearly anyone can commit a misdemeanor. It shouldn’t take you very long to think of someone you know and care about who’s committed a misdemeanor. Between speeding, loitering, spitting, jaywalking, trespassing, these are not difficult crimes to commit. The past few decades of mass incarceration have also been an exercise in revision and dehumanization. We could not have grown our prison population to this enormous and terrifying scale if our society had not essentially dehumanized people we put into that system. It is saying that the people in the criminal system are not like us, and that’s very hard to say with misdemeanors, because the people in the misdemeanor system are so clearly like us — like our children, like our neighbors, like our friends.

I think that we should imagine and understand that the people in the misdemeanor system are not a “they”; they are an “us.” And that insight, to me, is the heart of the most important kind of criminal justice reform.

white supremacy chart 2.jpg

This article should be considered within the context of the system of racism white supremacy. Dr. Blynd defines as follows;

projection - a highly emotional charged activity (dynamic energy) that occurs whenever an unknown aspect of yourself sees itself in somebody else. Whatever you're unaware of about yourself is always noticed in other people first. Remember that everything (i.e., known and disowned traits, unconscious) is projected. If you can't stand someone else for some seemingly unknown reason then you have the disliked feature or aspect in you but are unaware of its existence or presence within you. You notice it in someone else but its origin is in you. 2) "seeing" feelings, motives or attitudes in another that are really in ourselves only. 3) personified versions of one's own personality. 4) capacity for "charging" a particular area or energy system. 5) a false cause. 6) an unsettling hidden worry—deep seated in the psyche. Projections are illusions created by shadows of one's mind. Fear is often the template for its own manifestation. Projection is the vibration that we don't appreciate in someone else resonating with what we don't like in (or about) ourselves and is the source of most prejudice. "If you have hate for something there, this is yourself, though hard to bear. For you are I and I am thou. You hate in you what you despise. You hate yourself and think it's me." -Frederick S. Perls. [MORE]

Dr. Amos Wilson further explains,

“Textbooks aside, we must recognize that defensive projection is a way of life, a way of being and moving in the world. Projection does not only require an attributing to, or projecting of the ego's self-incriminating characteristics on the other, but a transformation of internal, potentially disorganizing contradictions into externalized attributive images and tensions; images and tensions which serve to structurally maintain the functionally dynamic organization of the ego. To project threat is to see it reflected in the face of the projective target or person. This self-instigated reflection creates a reactive psychological experience in the projecting ego. The ego projects threats and is threatened by its own reflected projection. Yet it denies or is unaware of its projective participation and creation of the threat it perceives, and believes it to be radiating independently from the other.

Through projection, the White American community transfers or exports its external contradictions — the conflicts, self-incriminations and tensions they engender — from itself to the African American community. By this means it rids itself of certain discomforts and discontents by forcing them on the Black community and perceiving them as originating in that community. By so doing it can better deny those characteristics in itself.

The same characteristics which when they are endemic to the White community and are perceived as threatening to its equilibrium, integrity and functionality, are externalized onto the Black community through projection. Consequently, the threats that come from inside the White community are perceived as coming from the outside Black community and are therefore perceived as generated by the latter. Thus the White community makes it appear that it is threatened by a menacing Black community; an evil, criminal, Black community which jeopardizes its existence: not the evil criminal inclinations it contains within its own bosom. By compulsively defending itself against the projected "threat" the Black community represents, the White community defends itself against its own self-generated, but self-denied, threats. The White community thereby becomes blind to its own negative characteristics and the positive characteristics of its scapegoat, the Black community.

Through projection the White community seeks to transform its evil, criminal, genocidal characteristics and intentions into good, law-abiding characteristics and intentions. Thus its evil becomes good. Once it projectively criminalizes the Black community it feels free to treat it criminally. Thus, to defend its own positive self-perception against knowledge  of its owncriminality, the White community must falsely accuse the Black community of criminality. For the sake of its own positive self-perception, the White community needs to perceive the Black community as criminal, whether or not such is the case.

When the projecting party or projectionist has superior influential advantages, as in the case of the White community relative to the Black community, projection becomes introjection, an act of creation, of transforming and conditioning reality. Introjection refers to the process by which the individual incorpo­rates  and accepts the prohibitions, values, attitudes,  and commands of others as his own even when their acceptance and incorporation may work against his objective interests. In addition to its usual meaning, introjection as used herein refers to the process by which a more powerful party through various means, "forces" a weaker party to accept or behave in accordance with his projected values, attitudes and such. When the projectionist is the more powerful, the chief reinforcer and punisher, his projection becomes not only an instrument of ego-defensive self-deception, but also an instrument for provoking self-deception in the other, the target of his projections. The distorted reality and falsified consciousness of the projective target, through introjection, becomes the reality distortion and falsification of the consciousness of the projecting party.

The projective relations between the relatively powerful White community and relatively powerless Black community constitute an authentic process of transformational social interaction. The dominant White community, by controlling the rhythm of Black community life, controls to a significant extent the setting and experience of Black people, their self-perception and perception of reality. The dominant White community, by means of projec­tion, acts in ways that organize the motivational systems of the Black community so that those systems are a functional reflection of the White community's psychopolitical needs. Introjective projection onto the African community occurs when that commu­nity accepts and internalizes the stereotypical characterization of itself as projected by another.

Introjective projection is accomplished when through its manipulative use of reward and punishment, control of informa­tion, definition of reality, etc., the White community inculcates in the collective personality of that community, a complementary and supportive set of values, norms, and patterns of behavior. Through the projective activities of the White community the collective character of the Black community is effectively deformed, defiled, and motivated to concretely demonstrate the characteristics stereotypically ascribed to it. By these and other means, the pathology in the White community becomes infec­tiously represented in the Black community. “[MORE]

Monitor says NYPD is Still Not Performing as it Should to Reduce Unconstitutional Stops & Arrests of the Black & Latino "Citizens" It Rules Over & Controls with Physical Coercion

NYPD Moves Towards the Goal of Better Politeness & More Shows of “Respect” While Interfering with Your “Freedom” of Movement in the lex-icon [law as image] of the Spectacle society, “the place and time we occupy where we are offered the image and never the reality; courtesy of Wallflower Productions and Crimeth Inc. Consolidated, in conjunction with ILLUSIONS-R-US & Sell-a-Vision.” FUNKTIONARY.

From [Jurist] An independent monitor has found that despite the adoption of improved policies and new training material, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) is still not performing as it should to reduce the incidence of unconstitutional stops and arrests.

In a status report filed in federal district court on Friday, Peter Zimroth discussed the department’s compliance with court orders issued in three civil rights lawsuits—Daniels v. City of New York, Floyd v. City of New York and Ligon v. City of New York—filed against the city between 1999 and 2012.

Analyzing information gathered directly by his team in addition to data provided by the NYPD, Zimroth highlighted several areas of concern. He noted in particular “the persistent problem of underreporting of stops and the failure of supervisors to deal with that underreporting.” Zimroth observed that in 2017—when the NYPD had more than 22,000 patrol officers and sergeants—only 11,629 stops were recorded. Zimroth also expressed concern over “the quality of the stop reports that are filed.” The data indicate that NYPD officers failed to articulate reasonable suspicion on 17.6 percent of all stop reports in the second quarter of 2018 and that supervisors responsible for reviewing those reports only found 0.55 percent of them deficient.

While he stressed the need for remedial action, Zimroth commended the NYPD for its progress in other areas. He acknowledged, for example, that the department has developed “a substantial amount of training material,” implemented a new performance evaluation system, and equipped officers with body cameras “in the majority of commands.” Zimroth concluded the report by stating that future assessments will focus on how the reforms implemented thus far and those still being planned “translate into constitutional and respectful policing in the street.”

Trial Set in Everyday Conspiracy: White Cop Fatally Shot a Black Man Holding a Toy Gun at His Side Shopping at Walmart After a White 911 Caller Reported "a Black Male Pointing a Gun at Children"

‘WHAT IS white collective power? when a white COP shoots an unarmed black man, his fellow officers, the police chief, internal affairs, the union, the media, the prosecutor, the judge, and the jury will support, defend, and finance that white police officer’s “right” to shoot (murder) an unarmed black person.’ [   ANON   ]

‘WHAT IS white collective power? when a white COP shoots an unarmed black man, his fellow officers, the police chief, internal affairs, the union, the media, the prosecutor, the judge, and the jury will support, defend, and finance that white police officer’s “right” to shoot (murder) an unarmed black person.’ [ANON]

From [HERE] A jury trial is scheduled Feb. 4 in the wrongful death lawsuit over a white police officer’s fatal shooting of a black man in an Ohio Walmart who was carrying an air rifle he picked up from a shelf. Ohio is an open carry state - for white folks.

Crawford picked up an un-packaged BB/pellet air rifle from a display inside the store's sporting goods section and continued shopping in the store. Another customer, Ronald Ritchie, a racist suspect, called 911. According to Ritchie, Crawford was pointing the gun at people and at children walking by, and messing with the gun. All of the statements were lies or inaccurate statements.

Security camera footage showed that Crawford was talking on his cellphone and holding the B.B. gun as he shopped, but at no point did he aim the B.B. gun at anyone. His family said he was talking to the mother of his two children. Crawford continues to walk through Wal-Mart aisles and passes by other customers, who do not appear to react to his presence.

After the security camera footage was released, Ritchie recanted his statement that led to the fatal shooting and stated, "At no point did he shoulder the rifle and point it at somebody", while maintaining that Crawford was "waving it around". Two white officers of the Beavercreek Police arrived at the Walmart shortly after their dispatcher informed them of a "subject with a gun" in the pet supplies area of the store.

The video shows Crawford continuing through the store. He paused at some store shelves, and it appears he’s still on the phone, fiddling with the gun as it swings, pointed toward the ground. Then, police enter the frame to his side; you can see Crawford turn his head, fall to the ground, scramble in the other direction, then turn back around before ultimately falling to the ground. It’s unclear whether he dropped the gun before being shot or after.

Sean Williams, one of the two police officers that arrived, shot Crawford in the arm and chest. He was later pronounced dead at Dayton's Miami Valley Hospital.

According to Crawford's mother, the video shows the officers fired immediately without giving any verbal commands and without giving Crawford any time to drop the BB gun even if he had heard them.

The Guardian revealed that immediately after the shooting, police aggressively questioned Crawford's girlfriend, Tasha Thomas, threatening her with jail time. The interrogation caused her to sob uncontrollably, with hostile questions suggesting she was drunk or on drugs when she stated that Crawford did not enter the store with a gun. She was not yet aware of Crawford's death at the time of the interrogation. Thomas died in a car crash months later.

Following the shooting a grand jury decided not to indict any of the officers involved on charges of either murder, reckless homicide, or negligent homicide.

Lead prosecutor Mark Piepmeier, also a racist suspect, said that the case revolved around whether Crawford obeyed police orders to drop the gun. “Was the officer reasonable to think himself or someone else would receive physical harm?” Piepmeier said at a news conference, the Enquirer reported.  “The law says police officers are judged by what is in their mind at the time. You have to put yourself in their shoes at that time with the information they had.”

Less than two weeks before the incident Officer Williams and others received what prosecutors called a “pep talk” on how to deal aggressively with suspected gunmen. Williams and his colleagues in Beavercreek, a suburb of Dayton, were shown a slideshow invoking their loved ones and the massacres at Sandy Hook, Columbine and Virginia Tech while being trained on 23-24 July on confronting “active shooter situations”.

“If not you, then who?” officers were asked by the presentation, alongside a photograph of young students being led out of Sandy Hook elementary school in December 2012. A caption reminded the trainees that 20 children and five adults were killed before police arrived.

The white prosecutor then took the unusual step of presenting the set of 11 slides from a presentation given to officers in the July session and other evidence to a grand jury in Greene County. Piepmeier signaled that the slides may have been important to the decision. “A question I have, and I think a jury would have, is how are the officers trained to deal with a situation like that,” he told reporters. [wha? does that sound like he wanted to prosecute the cop?]

He described the presentation as “almost like a pep talk for police officers,” which informed them: “You have to go after these things, you can’t ignore them”. They were told to rid themselves of the mindset that “it’s a bad day to be a cop” when confronting people who “have used, are using or are threatening to use a weapon to inflict deadly force on others”. [MORE]

“And that was, really, the question for this jury,” said the special prosecutor. “Looking at everything, was the officer reasonable in thinking that either himself or someone else was going to receive death or serious bodily harm”. [MORE]

Crawford’s family released a statement after the grand jury decision: “The Wal-Mart surveillance video and eyewitnesses prove that the killing of John H. Crawford III was not justified and was not reasonable. It is undisputed that John Crawford III was in Wal-Mart as a customer and was not posing a threat to anyone in the store, especially the police officers.”

Crawford's mother believes that the surveillance tape shows the police lied in their account of events, and has spoken out against the killing at a "Justice for All" march. The family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Walmart and the Beavercreek police department. [MORE]

The Justice Department conducted its own investigation. White prosecutors at the Justice Department declined to issue charges against the white officer.

U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman, racist suspect in photo, said they found insufficient evidence to pursue charges against Beavercreek police Officer Sean Williams, who fired the fatal shot. They said investigators analyzed store surveillance video using resources at the FBI laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, interviewed witnesses and used an independent crime scene reconstruction expert in their review.

"The government would be required both to disprove his (Williams') stated reason for the shooting — that he was in fear of death or serious bodily injury — and to affirmatively establish that Officer Williams instead acted with the specific intent to violate Mr. Crawford's rights," they said in a statement, adding that the evidence "simply cannot satisfy those burdens."

The Dayton Daily News reports lawyers for Crawford’s family and Walmart each requested summary judgment, arguing some claims can be decided in their favor from the facts, without trial.

judge rice 2.jpg

The requests are in front of U.S. District Court Judge Walter Rice, who could decide as soon as Friday if the case proceeds. Rice is also white.

Rice will decide on motions for summary judgment filed by Walmart in December and by Beavercreek in June 2018. The defendants make different cases and are not allied in their arguments.

“Crawford picked up an air rifle in the Beavercreek Walmart but was not shot merely because he was holding the air rifle,” Walmart’s motion for summary judgment reads. “Either there was police misconduct, or Crawford’s acts, combined with a blatantly false 911 call and inaccurate dispatch, caused the police to pull the trigger.

“There is simply no evidence that the decision to pull the trigger, even after the air rifle was mistaken for a real firearm, was foreseeable in an open carry state where Crawford could lawfully carry a real firearm.

ALTHOUGH Tim SCOTT IS A US SENATOR he primarily SERVES as a Proxymoronic Massa’bator AND BLACK STRAWBOSS for tHE GOP. AS A Snitch Ass Negro AIDING GOVERNMENT [SNAG] HE possesses a double consciousness programmed by elite overseers TO function under a mistaken belief THAT HE IS carrying out some moral imperative or task necessary for the public good.

WHEN HE IS NOT TALKING TO MEDIA HE SERVES AS A POTTED PLANT TO CREATE THE ILLUSION THAT THE GOP IS NOT THE RACIST ORGANIZATION THAT IT IS - THEREBY ATTRACTING STUPID WHITE MODERATES & OTHER BLACK SHEEPLE.

From [TPM] After Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) penned an op-ed on Friday blasting Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) comments about white nationalism, Scott stopped short of calling King racist in an interview on Fox News and said the congressman should not resign.

“I don’t think he should resign. His voters have elected him. He has, without any question, the power of his office. I think what should happen, however, is he should take a step back from the damage he’s doing to the country and frankly to our party,” Scott told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto.

Cavuto followed up and asked Scott if King is racist.

“I don’t know him well enough to know what the intentions of his heart really are, to be honest with you. But I can tell you his comments are polarizing at least, and frankly I find them offensive,” Scott replied.

Later in the interview, Cavuto asked how Republicans should address King’s statements if he won’t step down. Scott did not have a solution in mind.

“I don’t know how we play that out. Frankly, people have the right to say what they want to say. We have the right to respond to what they say. His voters elected him, and I have to respect the fact that the voters saw something beyond his comments that was worthy of public service,” Scott told Cavuto.

Scott wrote, “Some in our party wonder why Republicans are constantly accused of racism — it is because of our silence when things like this are said. Immigration is the perfect example, in which somehow our affection for the rule of law has become conflated with a perceived racism against brown and black people.”

Steve King asked, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” In his op-ed Scott reacted by stating,

“I will admit I am unsure who is offended by the term “Western civilization” on its own, but anyone who needs “white nationalist” or “white supremacist” defined, described and defended does lack some pretty common knowledge.” The “common knowledge” Scott referred to are his very own falsified afrikan consciousness, unchallenged assumptions and lack of self-knowledge.

Neely Fuller explains that racists like to use word tricks or confuse with language. The terms "racist" and "racists" and racism are used interchangeably or confusingly by racists with what is really bigotry or just name calling. The terms “white nationalist,” and “white supremacist” are also often used to confuse with nazi or neo-nazi. Anon explains a white supremacist is “A white person (a racist) who practices racism against non-whites. Being a white supremacist has nothing to do with income, title, or status. It does not mean a white person belongs to the KKK, the Aryan Nation, or is covered with Nazi tattoos. In reality, being white supremacist has nothing to do with membership in one of these clownish organizations and there are differing ways to practice white supremacy. A white supremacist can be a soccer mom, a businessman, or a US Senator if they are practicing racism against non-whites. Non-whites cannot always determine who is a racist, and who is not, because it is impossible to monitor (or judge) all the individual actions and words of any white person at all times. [MORE].

Nevertheless, Steve King has let us know through his record of words and conduct what he is all about. Only a massa’bating member of the Moteasuh Tribe [Mo’ Tea Sir?] paid to pander to his master’s agenda like Scott would not know “what is in Steve King’s heart.” As stated on the October 20 edition of Third Rail, a podcast of white supremacist website The Right Stuff, by the host known online as Borzoi, “We know about Steve King. We know what he’s all about. We’ve got Steve King’s back.”

Later on the show, in the context of a discussion mentioning The Camp of the Saints -- a “stunningly racist” anti-immigrant novel popular with right-wing media -- Borzoi mentioned King’s tweet that “we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” as a reference to the white supremacist theory “the great replacement.”

King’s white supremacy rhetoric often comes in the form of dog whistles that his racist supporters hear loud and clear, as evidenced by an October 30 thread on /pol/. The since-archived thread celebrated King’s tweet which mentioned “the diversity” among the dogs present in his pheasant hunt, writing, “We had English Setters, Brittanys, German Shorthairs, and black, yellow, chocolate & white Labradors all assimilated into a fine working team.” “Steve King is a white nationalist and shitlibs HATE him for it,” wrote the user who started the celebratory thread, while another poster praised the “great line” of “comparing dog breeds to different races.” [MORE]

According to Cress Welsing: "The term Western means "white." "Western" has become a comfortable (and for some confusing) obfuscating euphemism or code for the word “white.” The terms "Western Civilization" and "Western culture" specifically refer to the civilization evolved, determined, directed, developed and controlled by people who classify themselves as "white." [MORE] Dr. Blynd says “Western Civilization” is “a misnomer for European or Caucasian experiments at living amongst those already civilized.

As articulated Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, most white people consciously or subconsciously understand the following;

  • White plus Black equals Colored.

  • White plus Brown equals Colored.

  • White plus Yellow equals Colored.

The above is what "you will not replace us" is about and primarily what Steve King is talking about and what creating a wall is designed to slow down. The world is 90% non-white and growing. The "fear of replacement" and fear of losing control over non-white people fuels the system of white supremacy/racism and causes racists to act genocidally towards non-whites in a perceived "survival game" they are playing with us - in all areas of people activity. White people are genetic recessive. In general, this means they cannot reproduce a white child when they have sexual relations with non-whites. The white "race" can be replaced or "genetically annihilated" through such assimilation or social intermingling with non-whites. As white populations have been consistently declining, Black and Brown populations are surging. [MORE]

Scott fails to understand that racism is a behavioral system of white genetic survival. Racists are obsessed with skin color and their inability to produce color. To “otherize,” elites created the concept of race out of thin air. The only purpose of race is to practice racism. Having little biological validity, the term "race" is better translated to mean organization. The sole purpose of this organization is to maintain white domination and control of non-whites, who have been frictionalized into made up classifications of people by racists (elite racists do all the naming of peoples & countries -putting lines, boundaries on their maps).

Race is not real but racism is. [MORE] Racists practice racism to survive and maintain their dominant economic and social position in a global white over Black system. Racists believe the only way they can survive is by dominating non-white persons. The only way they could rule the world was by implementing a genocidal global program of deception, destruction, and domination - aka a war for genetic survival. To racists, such as King, a failure to do so would lead to the disappearance of the "white race." Scott misunderstands racism as merely bigotry and therefore has no understanding of how to neutralize racism white supremacy. As stated, Scott said he was “offended” by King’s statements but is clueless to the reality behind the rhetoric. Misunderstanding of the context of racism white supremacy, Scott simply seeks better relations and treatment from his white masters. Dr. Welsing explains;

"Because Blacks and other non-white people have failed to understand racism as white genetic survival, they erroneously have believed that they could be integrated into the white supremacy system. Blacks and other non-whites have failed to understand that if white people were to do this, it would mean active white participation in white genocide. Non-white people must master this perception of racism as a war for white genetic survival, a system into which non-white people never can be integrated." [MORE

Dr. Blynd explains, racism is White Degeneracy wrongly cast as Supremacy. Racism—a psycho-socio-economic reality based on a pseudo-scientific biological myth—is a power group dynamic, i.e., a defined group cooperatively via legacy institutions exerting structured and enforced institutionalized and systemic injustice, oppression and power over another group. Racism is not individualistic, but institutional, cultural, economic, political, linguistic, self-perpetuating and systematic. Racism is economic discrimination by one group over and against another for the purposes of subjugation and/or maintaining the imbalance of power through cooperative control, misinformation, indoctrination, genocide and oppression. It is defined as:

Racism White Supremacy - psychopathic degeneracy. 2) "The local and global power system and dynamic, structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined, which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action and emotional response, as conducted simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labour, law, politics, religion, sex and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet earth—a planet upon which the vast majority of people are classified as non-white (Black, Brown, Red and Yellow) by white skinned people, and all of the nonwhite people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white skin people." 

The Republican Party is the party of the vanishing white majority in the US. As explained by Patrick Buchanan, 'Republicans now depend on this vanishing majority of whites for fully 90 percent of their votes in presidential elections.’ [MORE]

"The Republican party is a racial identity party. It is designed to appeal to white people as white people... not as union-members or as unemployed people or as home-owners... as white people.  It is a crude racial-identity party and the numbers bear that out. It is an almost exclusively white party. Many white people vote Democratic, but the Republican party is pretty close to all white. (A fact that is soft-pedaled in out national dialog because it makes the modern Republican party sound like a racist institution, which it is.") [MORE]  In contrast, the Democratic Party wins 60 to 70 percent of the Asian and Hispanic vote and 90 to 95 percent of the black vote. [MORE

As has been clearly demonstrated since 2008, Republicans see ‘non-whites particularly Blacks, Latinos & Arabs as the primary impediment to governing.’ Republican immigration and political border politics is a policy of racist exclusion as it only concerns the migration of non-white peoples. King doesn’t hide this. Scott misses what is right in front of him due to his stupidity otherwise known as his somnamnesiac state. As explained by Dr. Amos Wilson, many working class, non-college educated whites express a profound distaste for non-whites particularly Blacks, Latinos & Arabs, a sentiment that pervades almost everything they think about government and politics. Blacks and other non-whites constitute the explanation for these white voters' vulnerability and provide an explanation for almost everything that has gone wrong in their lives; not being black is what constitutes being middle class; not living with blacks is what makes a neighborhood a decent place to live, excluding non-white migrants prolongs their survival & culture, and policing and surveilling non-whites here and abroad keeps them safe, amassing weapons ensures protection from non-whites here and abroad, etc. [MORE]

The GOP strategy centering around projecting the idea that the White populace is threatened by over­whelming alien forces, meaning Black criminals, non-white migrant gang members, Arab terrorists and non-whites demanding welfare and special entitlements, is not a strategy for actual governance. Yet racism unites this otherwise ad-hoc group of white people who otherwise have no unifying theory amongst them. White christians, fiscal conservatives, libertarians, NRA members, nationalists, etc have one thing in common; they hate non-white people. In reality however, the GOP’s real agenda is defending the upper-class interest of wealth and corporate power. Wilson explains, ‘The Republican party is not a party of conservative ideology. It is a party of conservative clients. Wherever possible, the ideology will be invoked as justification for taking care of the client's needs. When the two are in conflict, the conservative principles are discarded and the clients are served.'

Unaware of his role in all this, gullible Tim Scott is a sleeping Tom and token Sambo showcased by his masters like a potted plant to attract white moderates and other Black sheeple. FUNKTIONARY defines:

Black Conservative - a lost sheep in master's clothing. A black conservative typically has nothing of his own to conserve with the exception of his or her own double-consciousness. So-called "Black Conservatives" dodge the reality of their folly and posit is that what they truly are conserving is traditional "values" as if values ever had anything whatsoever to do with morality or ethics. A black conservative unknowingly preserves the differential power-relations and dynamics between those of African descent he and their bosses, the overruling overclass elite. A black conservative is a turncoat made of wooly hair with no one to turn to tie because when it comes to empowering his own people, his master will turn to him say: "Get your hat, your robe and coat and leave—you're still just a nigger Clarence!" (See: Sambo, Nigger, Somnamnesiac, Values, Status Quo, Strawboss, Double Consciousness, Overclass, Uncle Tom. Status-Quoticians & Assimilationism) 

The above critique is not intended to support the Democratic Party or its “liberals” or “progressives.” To be clear, the Democrat and republican parties both function as plantations run by racist elites. Between the two “choices” however, presented in Doggy’s system, the democratic party is a more polite, nicer master and its plantation offers more privileges, opportunities, responsibilities and “freedoms” to its non-white “citizens.” In contrast, the GOP plantation is run by mean cracker masters who offer a genocidal menu of hate and covert controls to non-whites. At election time an obviously coerced Black votary smartly “chooses” to stay on the nicer master’s plantation. Which begs the question why would Tim Scott want to cheerlead for and reside on the mean cracker's plantation in the first place?

Like many Black people Scott apparently has no idea he is in a system of racism white supremacy. He has no rational basis for understanding what racists such as KIng are doing and why they are doing it. He is therefore powerless to do anything about. As explained by Neely Fuller, "If you don't understand racism/white supremacy, what is is and how it works, everything else that you think you understand will only confuse you." Importantly he also doesn’t realize that “government” itself is a system of slavery - something difficult to see or understand because government is mind control. Like the concepts of “race” or “political borders,” government is also a granfalloon or empty representation. Dr. Blynd explains, “Government does not need to be abolished; merely rendered obsolete through seeing it for what it truly is—a prime manufacturer of poverty, brutal oppression, violence, coercion, conformity and fear.” The votary, white or Black, never wonders whether a world without masters is ever possible. 

Larken Rose explains, “there is a big difference between striving for a new, wiser, nobler master, and striving for a world of equals, where there are no masters and no slaves. Likewise, there is a big difference between a slave who believes in the principle of freedom, and a slave whose ultimate goal is to become the new master. And this is true, even if that slave truly intends to be a kind and generous master. Even those who advocate a relatively limited, benign type of “government” are advocating against freedom. As long as the people believe in the myth of “authority,” every downfall of one tyrant will be followed by the creation and growth of a new tyrant.”

"Among those who vote Democrat or Republican – or for any other party – no one recognizes the underlying problem, and as a result, no one ever gets any closer to a solution. They remain slaves, because their thoughts and discussions are limited to the pointless question of who should be their master. They never consider – and dare not allow themselves to consider – the possibility that they should have no master at all. As a result, they focus entirely on political action of one kind or another, But the foundation of all political action is the belief in “authority,” which is the problem itself. So the efforts of statists are, and always will be, doomed to fail. [MORE]

Persons who are woke understand to “choose” the less harsh plantation because in a worldwide system of government control all prisons or plantations are not equal and it is a denial of reality to theoretically pretend they are interchangeable. Rationalizations are endless but in a system of racism white supremacy when ‘the state offers a choice where one candidate is an overt racist psychopath/neuropean corpse, it would be smart to choose the other candidate [who is not] hoping to make the best of a bad situation. As explained by A. John Simmons, “you thereby express a preference, approve of that candidate (over the others), but consent to the authority of no one.” A “voter” might do so “if you like freedom of movement with your slavery.” Recognizing such realities and voting only when necessary to prevent the election of repressive Yurugu state managers, one is not under any illusion that he/she is participating in a democracy where none exists.

‘Never Put Your Hands On Cops b/c They Are Not Your Equal in a “Copitalist" System: NYPD Authoritarians are Furious the DA Dropped Charges on a Black Man Beat Down in the Street by White Cops

NYPD james Oneil .jpg

The [NY TIMES] writes, A highly unusual public feud broke out between prosecutors and top police officials on Friday after the Manhattan district attorney’s decision to drop charges against one of the men pummeled by the police with batons during a chaotic arrest in Washington Heights.

The office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., fielded angry phone calls from two of the Police Department’s senior officials — Terence Monahan, the chief of department, and Edward Delatorre, the chief of the transit bureau — over its handling of the matter.

And in an uncharacteristically public salvo, the police commissioner, James P. O’Neill, took to Twitter to sharply criticize Mr. Vance’s decision not to charge one of the men, Sydney Williams, 37, and not to seek bail on the second, Aaron Grissom, 36.

Mr. O’Neill said Mr. Vance’s handling of the matter put the safety of police officers and the public in jeopardy and sent the wrong message to New Yorkers.

During a radio interview with racist suspect Joe Piscopo later in the day, Mr. O’Neill defended the officers’ actions, saying the violence had started when Mr. Grissom refused to be arrested and punched one of the police. “You can’t punch a cop,” he said. “You can’t fight a cop. You can’t resist arrest. You have to respect the police.”

A relevant question for this racist suspect authoritarian is who was the aggressor when the Black man was retreating and subsequently lying on the ground receiving strikes from metal batons, foot stomping and punches from white cops and white civilians [auxiliary cops]? As he fled, could the cops have had a reasonable belief that they were in imminent danger of bodily harm? How is it that none of the cops or civilians were arrested and charged for their assault with intent to bodily harm?

With regard to mere mortals self defense is measured against necessity and civilians don’t have the right to initiate unprovoked violence against others. But cops are not mere mortals in a legal system of coercion or physical force. According to statist belief “the people” have delegated or transferred to police the moral right to commit acts of unprovoked violence on people. [MORE] Question here: can you delegate a right to someone that you don’t have? where does their “authority,” the right to rule others, come from? Asked differently, if you don’t have the right to initiate unprovoked acts of force against other people then how can you delegate or authorize another person to do such things? How did police acquire such super-human powers? The answer is logically unsupportable as “the belief in “authority,” which includes all belief in “government,” is irrational and self-contradictory. Yet all modern statism is based entirely on the assumption that people can delegate rights they don’t have.” [MORE]

NYPD is gang law is violence.jpg

Mr. Vance declined to respond to Mr. O’Neill’s criticisms. “Our office is conducting a full, fair and independent investigation into the alleged offenses for which Mr. Grissom and Mr. Williams were arrested,” Danny Frost, the district attorney’s spokesman, said. “We are separately conducting a full, fair and independent investigation into the force used by officers during this encounter.”

The police commissioner’s comments underscored the simmering tensions between the two law enforcement agencies. Though they historically have been closely aligned, Mr. Vance’s office has met resistance from the Police Department as it has embraced more liberal policies, like not prosecuting all low-level arrests for marijuana possession. At the present time the NYC murder rate is the lowest it has been it several decades and its crime rate has been in a consistent decline over the past decade - as it has been most of America’s largest cities according to the Brennan Center at NYU Law.

The brawl in Washington Heights erupted Tuesday afternoon after police officers — identified in court documents as Jeffrey Mota and Bramlin Rosa — asked Mr. Williams and Mr. Grissom to leave the subway entrance at 169th Street and Broadway after complaints from riders that the men were smoking on the stairs, the police said. The cops are white.

In a six-minute video taken by a passer-by and posted to Instagram, the police are seen pummeling Mr. Grissom with batons and kicking him.

In a separate video obtained from a nearby bodega, which the police released, Mr. Grissom can be seen just before the Instagram video swinging at the police officers as they back across the street.

The incident has prompted an internal affairs investigation into accusations of excessive force, though Mr. O’Neill pushed back against that allegation Friday morning.

“What I’m seeing right now, and this is preliminary results, these cops did exactly what we asked them to do,” he said in the radio interview. [Their job is to remind us daily, through acts of force, that we are simultaneously both enemies and slaves of the Corporate state.]

NYPD COPS KILL us.jpg

Mr. Williams and Mr. Grissom were arrested and charged with felony assault. But when they were brought before a judge Thursday evening, prosecutors deferred charges against Mr. Williams, who had been struck in the head with a baton early in the video. He was released. Mr. Grissom was charged with assault, attempted assault and resisting arrest, but prosecutors did not ask for bail and he was also released.

Sanford Rubenstein, a lawyer for Mr. Williams and Mr. Grissom, said they planned to sue the city over the arrest.

“The Manhattan D.A.’s office needs to wake up and realize that police officers cannot do our job when prosecutors won’t do theirs,” said Patrick J. Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, which represents the city’s police officers. “Every perp who has ever thought about taking a swing at a cop is watching the outcome in this case.”

The incident has created a politically difficult situation for Mayor Bill de Blasio, who ran as a criminal justice reformer and has gone through periods of conflict with the police. He said on Wednesday that he was concerned about the beating Mr. Grissom sustained at the hands of officers in the video. He now finds himself walking a fine line between his police commissioner and the Manhattan district attorney. [He literally begged the Black votary to vote for him but has delivered very little.]

“It is absolutely unacceptable to hit a cop or to resist arrest,” Olivia Lapeyrolerie, a spokeswoman for Mr. de Blasio, said in a statement Friday. “We won’t tolerate that, and the Mayor believes that behavior should be met with the toughest punishment available under the law. The Mayor has also been clear that there were parts of the video that gave him real concern.”

White Sports Anchor says Whiteness is the Main Criteria to Be an NFL Head Coach & Winning is Secondary to White Privilege [“an invisible package of unearned assets bequeathed to all Caucasians"]

After the latest round of hirings and firings in the NFL, head coaches in the league are now 99% white - out of 32 teams only 2 teams have Black head coaches.

On Wednesday, on an evening segment for WFAA Dallas sports anchor Dale Hansen said “Kingsbury fits all the criteria of being a head coach in the NFL,” Hansen said. “He’s an offensive genius. He’s young. And he’s white. And not necessarily in that order.”

Kingsbury, of course, is the new Cardinals head coach, whose hiring has set off a firestorm of debate in NFL media and fan circles. With the biggest non-Super Bowl weekend on the NFL calendar approaching, the plight of a 3-13 team has dominated the conversation.

That’s in large part because of the issues Hansen addresses here. Taken strictly at face value, an NFL team hiring a coach with with no league experience who recently got fired after going 35-40 at Texas Tech is compelling. [MORE]

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner Finds 6 Boxes of Files Related to the Mumia Abu-Jamal Case in a Storage Room - Contents Unknown but Never Disclosed to the Defense

When Larry Krasner announced his candidacy for DA, the president of the Philadelphia police union described his candidacy as "   hilarious   ." Krasner received no major newspaper endorsements. He assumed office on January 1, 2018.

When Larry Krasner announced his candidacy for DA, the president of the Philadelphia police union described his candidacy as "hilarious." Krasner received no major newspaper endorsements. He assumed office on January 1, 2018.

From [NPR} Days after Christmas, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner and some of his assistants went rummaging around an out-of-the-way storage room in the office looking for some pieces of furniture. What they stumbled upon was surprising: six boxes stuffed of files connected to the case of activist Mumia Abu-Jamal. More than 30 years ago, he was convicted of killing a police officer in a racially charged case. He and his supporters have long maintained his innocence.

Five of the six boxes were marked "McCann," a reference to the former head of the office's homicide unit, Ed McCann. Some of the boxes were also marked "Mumia," or the former Black Panther's full name, "Mumia Abu-Jamal."

It is unknown what exactly the files say and whether or not the box's contents will shed new light on a case that for decades has garnered worldwide attention.

But in a letter to the judge presiding over Abu-Jamal's case, Assistant District Attorney Tracey Kavanagh wrote "nothing in the Commonwealth's database showed the existence of these six boxes," she said. "We are in the process of reviewing these boxes."

The surprise discovery comes just weeks after a Philadelphia judge reinstated appeals rights to Abu-Jamal, saying the former radio journalist and activist should get another chance to reargue his case in front of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court due to a conflict-of-interest one of the justices had at the time Abu-Jamal's petition was denied.

Abu-Jamal's supporters are seizing on the mysterious six boxes as proof that his innocence has been systematically suppressed by authorities.

"There's no question in my mind that the only reason they could've been hidden like this is that this is the evidence of the frame-up of Mumia," said Rachel Wolkenstein, who has been a legal advocate and activist for Abu-Jamal for more than 30 years.

"What these missing boxes represent is confirmation of what we've known for decades: there's hidden, exculpatory evidence in Mumia's case, and that is evidence that Mumia's guilt was intentionally manufactured by the police and prosecution and the truth of his innocence was suppressed," Wolkenstein said.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office did not say anything about what is in the boxes, or whether there is evidence that the files are exculpatory, or capable of demonstrating that Abu-Jamal did not commit a crime. During his original trial, three separate eyewitnesses testified Mumia did commit the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.

Wolkenstein's assessment is wild speculation, according to Ed McCann, the former homicide unit chief whose name was scrawled across the six boxes. McCann left the office in 2015 after 26 years there as a prosecutor. He was never directly involved in Abu-Jamal's case.

"I can't tell you 100 percent what is in these boxes," McCann said Wednesday night. "But I doubt there is anything in them that is not already in the public eye."

How and why did six boxes tied to one of the most legendary and racially charged cases the office has ever handled get relegated to a dusty storage room?

McCann is not sure. But he said when the office moved locations in 2006, hundreds of boxes with his name written on them were moved into the current headquarters on South Penn Square, just across the street from Philadelphia City Hall.

"I don't remember these six boxes. But nobody over there discussed this with me before filing this letter," McCann said. "I would think if they were really interested in what happened, they would have reached out to me."

mumia & cop.jpg

In the two-page letter to the court, assistant district attorney Kavanagh wrote that if Judge Leon Tucker would like to review the boxes, prosecutors will turn them over.

Tucker, who is the same judge who ordered that Abu-Jamal should be given a new appeals argument, has not weighed in on the newly-discovered boxes.

But in his opinion last month, Tucker said former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Ronald Castille should have recused himself from hearing Abu-Jamal's petitions, since Castille himself was Philadelphia's district attorney when the case was actively on appeal. "True justice must be completely just without even a hint of partiality, lack of integrity or impropriety," wrote Tucker, saying a new hearing in front of the state's high court is warranted.

Prosecutors have not taken a position yet on Tucker's opinion. The files unearthed in the six boxes could influence whether Krasner's office supports or opposes a new hearing for Abu-Jamal.

Wolkenstein said the thousands of people who have joined the "Free Mumia" movement around the globe should be able to review the documents themselves.

"These files should be released publicly," Wolkenstein said. "The remedy for this is nothing less than dismissal of Mumia's charges and his release from prison."

[Cops Pretend There are No Cameras Inside the Paterson Police HQ] Prosecutor says White Cops Used Force to Put Jameek Lowery Into Ambulance but are Unsure How He Died of Mysterious Physical Injuries

paterson cops.jpg

ANOTHER FREDDIE GRAY WHITE SUPREMACY MYSTERY? From [HERE] A father of three in Paterson, N.J., was captured on video early Saturday morning entering police headquarters hysterical, paranoid and begging for water. Within 48 hours, he had died of injuries from a severe beating. Police officers deny touching him, but several are now under investigation.

It was about 4 a.m. when 27-year-old Jameek Lowery walked into the Paterson police headquarters, foaming at the mouth and pleading frantically for help. Lowery had activated Facebook Live to record the confrontation, in which he seems terrified that someone is trying to kill him — at times even suspicious white police officers in front of him. “Why are y’all trying to kill me? What did I do?” he asks, as he becomes increasingly distressed and begs the officers not to shoot.

At one point, Lowery seems to be hallucinating, saying, “I saw them by the wall. I see them! I see them! Yo, they’re trying to kill me.” An officer then shines his flashlight at the wall and calmly says, “Ain’t nobody there.” Lowery replies, “He’s right there! Walk over there.” Lowery says. “The police are trying to kill me. They think I’m a witness … they think I’m f***ing with the FBI.” He alternates between ranting, pleading for help and admitting, “I’m just paranoid, that’s it.”

[rulers don’t serve subjects] About midway through the four-minute video, Lowery, who is sweating profusely, asks for water. Police officers are heard in the video denying Lowery’s desperate request, simply saying, “We’re not allowed to,” but offering to have him taken to the hospital, where he can get something to drink. The Facebook Live video ends with Lowery agreeing to be taken in an ambulance. “Yeah, I need some water. I’m dehydrated,” he says.

Hours later, he was admitted to St. Joseph’s University Medical Center with assault-related injuries, including a broken cheekbone and fractured eye socket, according to the Paterson Press. He was placed on life support and died within 48 hours. In his Facebook Live video, Lowery seemed to predict his own demise, crying, “If I’m dead by the next hour or two, they [police] did it. I didn’t touch them at all.”

Now, his family is demanding answers as to why Lowery was denied help by officers, and who delivered the beating that killed him.

Police called an ambulance and accompanied him to St. Joseph's Hospital. But something happened on the way.

The Passaic County Prosecutor said in a statement that police used physical force and compliance holds to secure Lowery in the ambulance. Hospital records indicate no acute trauma.

The ride took between five and 12 minutes, and by the time he arrived he was unresponsive, the prosecutor added.

"They will do the autopsy, everything will come up and then we'll know where we stand and the answers will be given to you," said Paterson Police Director Jerry Speziale. "I want you to have those answers. Right or wrong I want you to have those answers." [MORE]

cameras inside .jpg

Cops Play Pretend There are No Cameras Inside the Paterson Police Headquarters. Police have not released or addressed the issue of whether the incident was also recorded by cameras inside the Paterson Police headquarters. In March 2018 Jerry Speziale indicated that cameras are inside the station and he specifically said “they are now functional.” [MORE] Speziale made said revelation after white police officers attacked an Arab man who had come to file a complaint. The cops beat him and destroyed his camera. His attorney had subpoenaed the camera footage but cops claimed they were inoperable at the time. Thereafter, Speziale assured the media and the public that the cameras were working fine. [MORE]

Lowery’s mother, Patrice King, told New York news station PIX 11, “He asked for water. They deny him water. Why couldn’t you give him water? Why didn’t they help him? All I wanna know is why you didn’t help my son.” Police sources confirmed to PIX 11 that officers were just following protocol, as water “may harm the individual” if they don’t know what else he has ingested. Police sources say they suspect Lowery was under the influence of the drug ecstasy at the time of the incident, according to PIX 11, but this has not been confirmed.

But Lowery’s brother, Jamir King, raised an even more baffling question: How did Lowery die of severe head injuries when he didn’t appear to have any during filming? “His face wasn’t like that in the [Facebook Live] video,” King told the Paterson Press, noting that hours had transpired between the taping and Lowery’s recorded arrival at the hospital. “What happened during that time?”

In a bizarre twist, Lowery can be heard on the video telling officers that he had already been to the hospital earlier in the evening and was kicked out. “They beat me up in the hospital,” he said. 

St. Joseph’s University Medical Center confirmed Lowery’s death to Yahoo Lifestyle in a statement.

“Janeek Lowery was a patient at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center on Saturday, January 5, 2019, until his passing on Monday, January 7, 2019,” the hospital said. “In accordance with patient privacy laws, we cannot comment on the medical care he received. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Lowery’s family.”

In addition to the police department’s theory that Lowery was intoxicated, the man’s relatives say he lived with bipolar disorder. It’s unclear whether he was medicated for the mental illness. The family is awaiting the results of an autopsy to help get their questions answered, according to the Paterson Press.

Two officers involved in the incident have been placed on administrative lead as the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office investigates the incident. Yahoo Lifestyle has reached out to the Prosecutor’s Office and will update this post with new information about the case.

Although it’s unclear exactly what caused Lowery’s delusions, those close to the case believe he somehow thought he was part of a federal probe that led to the convictions of three Paterson cops and arrests of two others, according to the Paterson Press.

In the meantime, Mason Maher, president of the union that represents superior officers in the Paterson Police Department, told the Paterson Press he watched the video of the incident and feels, “From everything I’ve seen so far, the officers acted professionally and got him the help that he was in need of by calling for the ambulance.”

Paterson Mayor André Sayegh weighed in on the incident on Facebook, calling it “tragic” and “a very sad start to our week.” He said he had actually met Lowery the week prior and “had a great conversation” with him, inviting him to visit City Hall. He said he’ll be updating the public as results from the investigation materialize, and he is keeping in touch with Lowery’s family. “Let’s keep in mind that a mother has lost her son,” he said. “Please pray for the family of Jameek Lowery.”

Gang of NYPD Cops Caught on Video Committing Aggravated Assault on Black Man in the Street, Striking Him w/Batons, Fists & Stomping Him to Coerce Obedience to Non-Smoking Law

From [NewYorkTimes] Several police officers pummeled a Black man in the middle of a street in Upper Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon with their batons, fists and feet, according to a witness who took a video of the incident.

The beating, the police said, came after two transit officers had an altercation with two men they had asked to leave the entrance of a nearby subway station.

The two men, Sidney Williams, 37, and Aaron Grissom, 36, were arrested on charges of felony assault and other offenses, and treated at a hospital, police officials said. Two of the officers had minor injuries.

According to police officials, several commuters had complained about the men smoking in an entrance to the A, C and 1 trains at 169th Street on Broadway.

The transit officers spent five minutes trying to persuade the men to move away from the area, and then one of the men threw a punch at one of the officers, which was not captured on the video, the officials said. [MORE]

Canadian Government is Using Militarized Race Soldiers to Violently Evict Indigenous People to Force-Build Unwanted 416 Mile Mega-Pipeline on the Wet’suwet’en’s Territory

From [HERE] Indigenous protesters in Canada have called a growing police presence near their makeshift checkpoint “an act of war”, as tensions mount over a stalled pipeline project in northern British Columbia.

In defiance of a court order, dozens of protesters have gathered on a logging road nearly 700km (430 miles) north-west of Vancouver, to block the construction of a natural gas pipeline.

“We want them right off Wet’suwet’en territory,” Chief Madeek, a hereditary leader, told reporters at the gates of the checkpoint, where temperatures have dipped to -15C (5F).

On Monday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced they would enforce a court order to remove the demonstrators from the area, and at least 10 police cars and a helicopter arrived at the protest camp.

“The conflict between the oil and gas industries, indigenous communities, and governments all across the province has been ongoing for a number of years. This has never been a police issue. In fact, the BC RCMP is impartial and we respect the rights of individuals to peaceful, lawful and safe protest,” they said in a statement.

Energy company TransCanada is attempting to build the Coastal GasLink, a 670km line stretching from Dawson Creek to the coastal city of Kitimat. The C$6.2bn (US$4.6bn) project is part of a broader plan to ramp up natural gas exports in the province.

The company has previously said it has the support of all elected indigenous leaders along the proposed route, but Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs have signaled they do not support the project – and argue that elected band leaders are not in the position to negotiate with the company.

A COSTUMED RULER

A COSTUMED RULER

“They’re not the title-holders or the caretakers of the land. The hereditary chiefs are,” said Madeek.

The pipeline project has previously faced numerous delays, after a group of protesters constructed a blockade – named Unist’ot’en Camp – in order to prevent construction vehicles from accessing the area.

On 14 December, a British Columbia court granted TransCanada an injunction permitting them access to the construction site and ordering the removal of the blockade. Within days, activists erected the new barrier, named the Gidimt’en checkpoint.

On Sunday, Unist’ot’en Camp issued a statement of support for the Gidimt’en checkpoint: “The RCMP’s ultimatum, to allow TransCanada access to unceded Wet’suwet’en territory or face police invasion, is an act of war. Canada is now attempting to do what it has always done – criminalize and use violence against indigenous people so that their unceded homelands can be exploited for profit.”

Both the Unist’ot’en and Gitimd’en are part of the five clans which make up the Wet’suwet’en. [MORE]

Denver Cops are Using Curfew Law to Target Latino Youth, who Comprise 41% of the Teen Population but Account for 67% of Curfew Arrests

From [SentencingProject] Though cities such as Austin and San Antonio have eliminated or decriminalized curfew violations – arresting youth who remain out of their homes at late hours – Denver’s curfew law, which began in 1994, is still on the books. A recent review by the Denver Post found that Latino youth, who comprise 41% of the city’s teen population, accounted for 67% of curfew arrests. The police department explains that they target areas of the city with “a lot of juvenile activity” and deploy extra curfew runs during Cinco de Mayo. Curfew citations compel youth to undergo a months-long program and can result in fines, a permanent record, and consequences for immigration proceedings.

“The numbers here suggest that if you happen to be a Mexican kid living in Denver, then that’s a crime,” said Councilman Paul López, who represents the area most targeted by disparate enforcement. The Denver Post highlighted stories such as that of a Latina girl ticketed for stopping at a convenience store on the way home from her late shift at a restaurant. Although she was saving money for college, she quit the job to avoid another police encounter. The problem has existed for years, but Denver’s police department made data errors (uncovered by local media) that hid the existence of the disparitie

Study Finds that Black Drivers in Nashville are Stopped at a 44% Higher Rate than Whites. The Disproportionate Traffic Stops Had No Effect on Crime [w/in the Free Range Prison We Live in]

From [SentencingProject] The Nashville police department has used traffic stops as a strategy to increase visibility and prevent crime in the city, but this tactic has disproportionately affected people of color and has failed to improve public safety, according to a new report from the Policing Project of the NYU School of Law in collaboration with the Stanford Computational Policy Lab (SCPL). The report notes that although the total number of stops and their racial disparity have declined in recent years, black drivers were stopped at a 44% higher rate than white drivers in 2017. The researchers also found the stops did not appear to have a significant impact on short- or long-term crime trends.

The police department claims these disparities are connected to the location where stops occur, explaining that Nashville’s “high-crime” neighborhoods tend to have larger populations of color. SCPL’s analysis finds that even after controlling for crime, unexplained racial disparity persists. In response to the report, Nashville police may be open to some changes.

Tenessessee unnamed-1.png

The SCPL report states,

“as we summarize below, there are indeed notable racial disparities in traffic stops in Nashville. These disparities are higher for traffic stops around non-moving violations,such as broken taillights or expired tags. Disparity, however, is not necessarily evidence of discrimination .

 Any number of neutral factors, including officer deployment patterns or differences in rates of offending, may explain these and other disparities in the criminal justice system. MNPD explains these racial disparities in traffic stops on the ground that officers go where the crime is, and that in Nashville, high-crime neighborhoods tend to have larger minority populations. The SCPL analysis bears this out. However, even controlling for crime, unexplained racial disparity still remains.

More importantly, the SCPL report shows that traffic stops are not an effective strategy for reducing crime. In particular, MNPD’s practice of making large numbers of stops in high crime neighborhoods does not appear to have any effect on crime.” [MORE]

Trial Challenging Trump’s Termination of Temporary Protected Status for Haitians Underway: Atty says Decision was Based on “Racial Animus" & “Hostility to Immigration by Nonwhite People"

From [HERE] The first trial challenging the Trump administration’s termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for certain groups of non-white immigrants kicked off Monday, as lawyers for a group of Haitian plaintiffs argued their home country is not safe for their return. 

After a 7.0-magnitude earthquake devastated Haiti in 2010, it has been rocked by a cholera epidemic started by U.N. peacekeepers as well as a hurricane. While the island nation has made some progress in regaining its footing, the plaintiffs say Haiti is not ready to handle an influx of nationals. 

Two plaintiffs themselves testified Monday about the lives they had built in the U.S. since the quake and their fear of returning. 

“Things are worse than like it was before,” said Haitian national and TPS holder Rachelle Guirand, 40, who fought back tears during her testimony and once had to pause to wipe them on her sweater. “Everything is – it’s chaotic over there, economically, politically.” 

Five federal lawsuits have been filed nationwide over the new TPS designations, which also affect immigrants from several other countries, but this is the first to hit the next step. It will likely face more hurdles: U.S. District Judge William Kuntz, who’s presiding over the Brooklyn bench trial, spoke of his “friends on the 17th floor,” referring to the courtroom location at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan. 

The plaintiffs filed their complaint in March 2018, claiming the Trump administration had violated the Constitution, the Administrative Procedure Act and other laws when it ended TPS status for Haitians in November 2017. Kuntz will not make the TPS decision himself, but his written ruling after the conclusion of the trial could force the administration to go back to the drawing board on its determination of whether Haitians should be eligible for the status. 

TPS status for Haitians in November 2017. Kuntz will not make the TPS decision himself, but his written ruling after the conclusion of the trial could force the administration to go back to the drawing board on its determination of whether Haitians should be eligible for the status. 

On July 22, 2019, temporary protected status is set to expire for 59,000 Haitian nationals living in the U.S. Some experts estimate about 27,000 U.S.-born children of these immigrants will also be affected.

“The Trump administration did not make any real factual determination,” said plaintiffs’ lawyer Howard Roin of Mayer Brown in his opening statement Monday, arguing it had based its decision based on “racial animus” and “hostility to immigration by nonwhite people” as well as “to the entire idea of TPS.” 

“The Trump administration made a political – not factual – a political decision to terminate Haiti’s TPS status regardless of the facts,” he said. 

Roin also rather delicately attempted to avoid saying the word “shithole” during his openings, instead saying “s-hole,” a topic the judge addressed head-on: this trial would be uncensored.

“We’re in grown-up land here,” Kuntz said, later adding, “Let’s use the words that were used.” 

In a meeting last year, President Trump infamously wondered aloud why the U.S. should allow the entry of immigrants from “shithole countries” like Haiti and African nations. 

In opening arguments for the government, Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Marutollo said Haiti suffered from endemic problems like poverty long before the quake, and noted that TPS had not actually been redesignated to the country since 2011. It has only been extended, meaning no new Haitian nationals can acquire the status. He also maintained the TPS statute bars judicial review of any decision made by the Secretary of Homeland Security.

In addition to the plaintiffs, the court heard testimony from two expert witnesses: lawyer Ellie Happel, who testified as an expert on in-country conditions; and Michael Posner, former Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor.

Happel, a staff attorney at New York University’s Global Justice Clinic, was definitive.

“Haiti is not capable of safely receiving its nationals,” she said.

She testified that in making its designation, the Trump administration had ignored the facts on the ground, for example a housing crisis, a lack of waste management and food insecurity.

Posner, too, indicated the administration had not taken the facts on the ground into account. He testified that the administration seemed to have given a “lack of deference” to recommendations from the U.S. Embassy in Haiti when it made its designation, calling embassies “the eyes and ears of our government.” 

Both Guirand and Naischa Vilme, the other plaintiff who testified, said they did not know what they would do if they were sent back to Haiti. Vilme wants to get her Ph.D in clinical psychology but said mental health is a “taboo” subject in Haiti. 

“Everything in Haiti is a luxury,” said Guirand – the right to work, the right to healthcare. “Everybody’s on their own.”

 Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez spoke at a press conference outside the courthouse before the trial began Monday. She and fellow New York Democrat, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, have pushed the administration on its TPS rulings.
