According to an Indictment, After a Baltimore Cop "Deliberately Ran Over" a Black Man, a Conspiring White Cop-Artist Planted a BB Gun Near His Body to Justify Abuse, False Arrest & Prosecution

From [HERE] A white Baltimore police sergeant linked to the Gun Trace Task Force has been indicted on federal charges including civil rights violations and witness tampering.

Keith Allen Gladstone, 51, had his initial appearance and arraignment in federal court on Tuesday. The indictment was returned on Feb. 27 and sealed until the Tuesday hearing.

“Prosecuting criminals who work in police agencies is essential both to protect our communities and to support the many honorable officers whose reputations they unfairly tarnish,” U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur said in a statement. “This is not about policing, it is about a criminal conspiracy.”

Acting Commissioner Michael Harrison said that based on the indictment and other information available to him, three officers will be suspended pending the outcome of an internal investigation. A fourth officer was already suspended, and will also be investigated.

“The allegations outlined today in court are beyond disturbing, and speak to a culture that I am here to change," Harrison said in a statement. "We are working with our federal partners on this ongoing investigation."

Prosecutors point to one incident on March 26, 2014, when Gladstone was having dinner with another officer when he got a call on his cell phone from a "W.J." That officer is not directly named in the indictment, but is likely a reference to Sgt. Wayne Jenkins, a racist suspect who later pleaded guilty in the wide-ranging Gun Trace Task Force scandal.

According to the indictment:

On the evening of March 26,2014, GLADSTONE, who was on duty, was having dinner with Officer 1 at a restaurant in Southeast Baltimore. GLADSTONE received a call on his cell phone from W.J., who was in a panic.

GLADSTONE answered the call but left the restaurant to speak on the phone out of Officer 1 's presence. W.J. had just deliberately run over an arrestee, D.S., in the front yard of a home in Northeast Baltimore.

GLADSTONE went back inside the restaurant and asked Officer 1 if he had a BB gun and when Officer 1 told him he did not, GLADSTONE asked Officer 1 to call Officer l's partner, Officer 2. Officer 1 did as directed but Officer 2, who was not working that day, told Officer 1 he did not have a BB gun either.

Officer 1 told GLADSTONE that Officer 2 did not have a BB gun either. GLADSTONE then left the restaurant a second time and went to the trunk of the BPD vehicle he was driving where he retrieved a BB gun.

GLADSTONE went back into the restaurant and told Officer 1 that they had to leave immediately. GLADSTONE then drove at a high rate of speed to the site of the D.S.'s arrest on Anntana Avenue and Belair Road in Northeast Baltimore City.

Once there GLADSTONE exited his vehicle and carried a BB gun to the front yard of the house where D.S. had been run over. GLADSTONE dropped the BB gun near a pickup truck where D.S. lay injured on the ground unable to use his legs.

GLADSTONE then walked over to W.J. and Officer 3. GLADSTONE told W.J. in Officer 3's presence "it's over by the truck," or words to that effect and GLADSTONE told W.J. to have someone search by the truck. GLADSTONE then left the scene and drove away with Officer 1.

W.J. told Officer 4 that a gun was in the grass and told Officer 4 to move it under the pickup closer to the victim. Officer 4 retrieved the BB gun from the grass and placed the BB gun near the front driver side wheel underneath the pickup truck.

The BB gun was then seen by another BPD officer and ultimately recovered by the BPD's crime lab unit. D.S. was taken from the scene to the hospital in custody where drugs were recovered from him.

He was then taken from the hospital to BPD's Central Booking where he was charged. Those charges included possession, use and discharge of a gas or pellet gun, for the BB gun that GLADSTONE planted at the scene of D.S.'s arrest, and a number of drug offenses.

W.J. wrote a false statement of probable cause in the name of Officer 5, which Officer 5 agreed to submit in support of those charges. W.J. approved the false statement of probable cause as Officer 5's supervisor. D.S. was detained on those charges until at least April 2, 2014. The charges against D.S. arising out of his arrest on March 26, 2014, were disposed of by nolle prosequi, which is a form of dismissal on January 16, 2015. [MORE]

An attorney said Gladstone entered a plea of not guilty, and that his client is "not like" the defendants who have already pleaded guilty or who have been convicted in the GTTF cases.

Gladstone joined the force in 1992 and was promoted to sergeant in 2011. He retired the following year, but was reinstated in 2013. He led a special enforcement section unit assigned to the Western District until he retired a second time in 2017.

The indictment also alleges that after W.J. and six other officers were arrested on federal racketeering charges, Gladstone told the officer he had been dining with that night that, if questioned about the night's events, he should tell investigators that they were there for "scene security."

Last June, Gladstone was named in a $40 million lawsuit that alleged he supplied the drugs that were planted in a different arrest. That suit also named Jenkins, Officer Ryan Guinn and the estate of Detective Sean Suiter. In January of last year, a jury awarded $75,000 to a man who alleged Gladstone and another officer used excessive force while arresting him.

If convicted, Gladstone could face up to 35 years in federal prison. U.S. Magistrate Judge Beth P. Gesner ordered him released under supervision of U.S. Pretrial services.

Although Black Teen Didn’t Fit the Description a White Cincinnati Cop Unlawfully Detained Him & Then Tasered Him in the Back b/c the Cop Feared for His Safety as the Teen Fled, $2M Suit Filed

Cincinnati Police taser blacks.jpg

[like the 4th Amendment says, If You’re Black You Can Be Stopped Anytime and If You Flee, Cops Can Gun You Down. images blurred by white media to protect the system of racism white supremacy] From [HERE] and [HERE] The family of a teenage boy who was stunned with a Taser twice and who broke his clavicle in a fall while he ran from a police officer two years ago filed a lawsuit against the officer, the Cincinnati Police Department and the city.

The 16-year-old's family is alleging that Officer Kevin Kroger violated the department's use-of-force policy, used excessive force, violated the boy's civil rights and caused him emotional distress. Diondre Lee and Antionette Lee along with their son, now 16, filed a lawsuit in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. They're seeking $2 million in the lawsuit.

The boy was 14 years old, 5'5" and about 120 pounds on March 2, 2017 when he ran from Officer Kroger. Police reports and police body camera video show Kroger was in a Price Hill apartment complex at about 6:30 p.m. when he spotted "a previously stolen vehicle" that had been used in an attempted shooting earlier that day just a few blocks away. Kroger also spotted "five black male teenagers walking together, one of which matched the description of the suspects from the felonious assault."

Kroger was patting down the 14-year-old — who didn't fit the description of the shooting suspect, but was the first one detained — "for possible weapons" when the boy started running. He later told police he ran because he had marijuana in his pocket. Kroger took off after him, and said he didn't give a verbal warning before using a Taser because he thought the teen might have a weapon and he didn't want to give the boy "time to react."

The 14-year-old "fell hard on the pavement" after being hit with the Taser, breaking his collar bone, according to the lawsuit.

"Yeah, he bounced," Kroger said on police body camera. "He hit real hard."

Kroger used his Taser on the boy a second time, while the teen already "was on the ground and writhing in pain," and "without reasonable provocation or threat of harm." Kroger never told the teen to stop, the suit states. The cop also threatened to use it two more times while he was handcuffed, according to the lawsuit.

Cincinnati police policy says officers should give warning before using their Tasers whenever possible. The policy also states that fleeing alone is not enough justification to use a Taser.

Before the incident, the boy played football, basketball and baseball, but has since stopped playing sports because of residual pain and a hit to his confidence caused by the injury, according to the lawsuit. It also states that he suffers from PTSD and anxiety associated with adult authority figures.

Lee's attorney said the then 14-year-old was not armed and never posed a threat to police.

"They certainly were looking for a suspect related to a stolen car, but my client did not in any way meet the description of that suspect," Cummings said.

"Number one, he never told my client to stop when he had ample opportunity to tell my client to stop. Number two, he Tased him from behind. My client fled from him. He was afraid of Officer Kroger. We don't think it's reasonable that Officer Kroger believed, truly, that he was in danger of his life or harm," Cummings said. [MORE]

"Suspect or not, he’s still a human being," the boy's father, Diondre Lee, told WCPO in December. "The professionalism is out the door. And it’s evident. It’s on tape. How do they justify that? They got body cams on and they’re still carrying on like this. They don’t care. How do we tell our children not to be afraid of these people behind the badges, acting the way they’re acting?"

Cincinnati's police union president Dan Hils told The Enquirer Kroger was cleared of wrongdoing by an internal investigation, the police administration and the Citizen Complaint Authority.

Hils said in a Facebook post the teen had been in a stolen car, had drugs in his possession and refused to stop for police [therefore, like the Constitution says, he lost all his rights] "It was a legitimate use of force," Hils said. "This lawsuit is outrageous." [facism is here] The union will provide legal counsel to defend Kroger in the lawsuit. "I consider him possibly the best street policeman I've ever had work for me," Hils said.

"You researched dozens and dozens of uses of force looking for something to sensationalize and now the taxpayers will have to defend a bull crap lawsuit," Hils wrote criticizing a WCPO reporter on Facebook Tuesday.

In October, Black cop Kevin Brown was given a seven-day suspension after he used a taser to stop an 11-year-old girl who fled after she was caught allegedly shoplifting. The City of Cincinnati also agreed to pay the family of that girl $220,000.

In that case, internal reviews of the incident did not clear Brown of wrongdoing. Federal authorities are also now investigating whether Brown violated the girl's civil rights.

Supreme Court Allows $4 Million Award to Stand: LA Deputies Broke Into a Homeless Latino Couple's Shack, Shot Man 10X Causing Lost Leg & Shot Pregnant Woman in the Back

melendez shack la.jpg

From [HERE] and [HERE] The U.S. Supreme Court Monday let stand a nearly $4 million award to a formerly homeless Lancaster couple for a raid by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies that caused the man to lose a leg.

In declining to take up the case involving Angel and Jennifer Mendez, the nation’s highest court upheld an appellate panel’s finding that the deputies were liable for the warrantless raid while searching for a parolee-at-large.

Angel Mendez and his wife sued Los Angeles County eight years ago, alleging excessive force and federal civil rights violations.

Angel Mendez was shot approximately ten times and suffered severe injuries. He lost much of his leg below the knee, and he faces substantial ongoing medical expenses. Jennifer Lynn Garcia (now Jennifer Mendez,) who was pregnant, was shot in the upper back and left hand. On the afternoon of the shooting, both were sleeping in their modest home, a small one room structure on the property of Paula Hughes. Two Los Angeles County Sherriff's deputies, Conley and Pederson, unlawfully entered the structure. In doing so, they roused the sleeping Mr. Mendez. In rising from the futon on which he had slept, Mr. Mendez picked up a BB gun that was on the futon to place it on the floor. In the process, the gun was pointed in the general direction of Conley and Pederson. The deputies, believing that the BB gun threatened them, quickly opened fire.

Before the shooting, deputies of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department were searching for a parolee-at-large, Ronnie O'Dell. A confidential informant had seen someone resembling O'Dell riding a bicycle in front of Paula Hughes' home. After a briefing during which officers were told that a couple resided in a shack behind Hughes' home, officers were dispatched to the scene and entered Hughes' house. Officers Conley and Pederson, who were among the officers informed about the couple living in the backyard of the Hughes property, were charged with searching the area to the rear of the house. Conley and Pederson, guns drawn and on alert because they believed O'Dell to be armed and dangerous, approached the structure in which the Mendezes resided. There were many apparent signs that the structure was a residence, including: an electrical cord was running to it; an air conditioner was installed; and some storage lockers were nearby. Conley and Pederson nevertheless entered the structure without announcing their presence, and a split second later, misperceiving the threat posed by the BB gun, shot the Mendezes, which caused their grave injuries.

U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald handed down his ruling for the plaintiffs in Los Angeles federal court in August 2013, awarding $3.8 million to Mendez and $222,000 to his wife, for damages resulting from Fourth Amendment violations by the deputies.

JudgeFitzgerald found that their constitutional rights to privacy were violated when deputies subjected them to an unlawful search and seizure. Fitzgerald found the deputies didn’t have legal grounds to search the background and therefore are responsible for damages.

“It’s hard to imagine how two people could be at fault for lying in a shack on a bed doing nothing,” said Gerald Ryckman, one of the couple’s attorneys.

Angel and Jennifer Mendez were living on, in a backyard shed behind a front house. The couple had fallen on hard times and were practically homeless, said the judge. A friend of Angel Mendez allowed them to stay in the shack-like structure till they got back on their feet. [MORE]

The deputies appealed to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2016, unsuccessfully arguing that the dilapidated wooden shack did not appear to be a residence and consequently a warrant was not required.

Affirming Fitzgerald’s finding, the appellate panel determined that the deputies should have known that the shack was occupied, since it was “surrounded by an air conditioning unit, electric cord, water hose, and clothes locker.”

County lawyers then appealed to the Supreme Court, which overturned the appellate ruling. However, the 9th Circuit upheld the ruling last year, again finding the deputies liable. This time, the Supreme Court declined without comment to consider a further appeal.

Infected with Racism Mental Virus, White Sacramento DA Needlessly Smeared Stephon Clark & His Family [She has Not Charged Any Cop in Over 30 Separate Shooting Investigations]

From [ThinkProgress] Stephon Clark’s family didn’t have any real hope that Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert would charge the police who killed the unarmed 23-year-old in his grandparents’ backyard in 2018.

But Schubert’s press conference on Saturday managed to shock them anyway — not in her detailed explanation of the evidence that the officers sincerely believed Clark’s cellphone was a gun, but in what came next.

After first insisting that her investigation’s sole question was whether or not Clark’s killing was a crime, Schubert suddenly moved the goalposts 45 minutes in. With that question already thoroughly answered, Schubert additionally revealed that Clark had been accused of domestic assault two days prior to his death, that he’d threatened to kill himself, and that his children’s mother gave a “very negative” response to the last text Clark ever sent her: a question, attached to a picture of his own hand holding 10 prescription pills.

Schubert had not given family members advance notice about her plans to portray these legally-irrelevant aspects of Clark’s final days, close family friend Jamilia Land told ThinkProgress Monday.

We were realistic about what the likely outcome would be, that there would be no charges,” Land said. But the family was taken aback by “the lowness of where she stooped to with putting out all this information,” she said — a move that “completely blindsided” them after Schubert did not mention the information during a brief private meeting with Clark’s mother just hours before the press conference.

Schubert, through a spokesperson, declined to clarify her intent or legal logic, or to address Land’s claim that her office hadn’t shared the same details with Clark’s own family members before she revealed them on camera.

Locals protested Schubert’s decisions in downtown Sacramento on Monday night, with marchers blocking a strip of highway they had repeatedly commandeered in the immediate aftermath of Clark’s killing last year. Police showed less patience with the activists this time, arresting more than 80 people who refused to disperse from a roadway that is closely linked to the racial segregation that shaped the city and neighborhood where Clark grew up and died.

Schubert’s smear wasn’t necessary, legal experts told ThinkProgress. The current courtroom rules in the United States, combined with the facts Schubert laid out over the first 45 minutes of her press conference, supported her conclusion that Clark’s killers had been justified.

Jonathan Blanks, a research associate at the Cato Institute’s Project on Criminal Justice. “She was under no obligation to share her theory as to why he was acting out in the way he was and could have simply let it go without saying in her public comments.”

American Civil Liberties Union of California legislative advocate Lizzie Buchen agreed, calling it “excessive and unnecessary” and noting that Schubert has now declined to charge any officer in more than 30 separate on-duty shooting investigations during her career.

“She is again bending over backwards to find a reason not to prosecute, and to exonerate herself and her office from anyone finding fault with these decisions in part by painting this picture of this person who the officers killed,” Buchen said.

The law requires jurors and prosecutors to rely on what the officers “honestly and reasonably believe[d],” as Schubert correctly stated. The officers’ body cameras captured a flash of light near Clark’s hands that is consistent with the officers’ separate explanations for why they thought the cellphone he was holding was actually a gun. And their “spontaneous statements” about a gun in the seconds after they killed Clark are “considered inherently reliable” by the courts, Schubert said.

It isn’t just outside observers who say Schubert could have stopped there. Schubert made the same point herself, repeatedly and less than an hour before she shared Clark’s phone records.

“Our question in this review is limited to one question: Was a crime committed?” she said five minutes into the press conference, repeating the query twice more in the next minute. Two minutes later, she repeated it again, saying that determining whether police officers had committed a crime was “the single question we have today in our review.”

Yet Schubert dropped that single-minded focus in the final 20 minutes of her presentation, detailing lurid snapshots of Clark’s final 48 hours punctuated with apologies for the pain she knew she might be causing. When reporters dutifully connected the dots she’d laid out by asking if Clark had intended to commit “suicide by cop” that night, Schubert demurred and moved on to other questions.

“Some of the details that came out during the course of that press conference were unbeknownst to anyone except the parties directly involved with the exchange of messages,” said Land, the Clark family friend. “His mother made it very clear that she had an incredible relationship with her son and that there was not much that was happening in his life that she was not privy to [but] there was no knowledge about the depth of those text messages.”

PROVIDING FACTS IN ACCORD WITH THE APPETITE OF THE RACIST LISTENER NOT THE REALITIES OF LIFE.    Dr. Amos Wilson    explains, “In the context of White American domination there is no innocent Black male, just Black male criminals who have not yet been detected, apprehended or convicted. Their mere presence inspires in White Americans, fears of being assaulted, raped, robbed, or some other indefinable dread of being criminally victimized. Fantasies of the sexual molestation of White females by rapacious Black males are common to the White American male and female consciousness, and are frequent themes of their literary, cinematic, and pornographic productions.     For a very large percentage of White Americans, young Black males, sexual promiscuity, and criminality are synonymous. In the dominant White American consciousness the African male is existentially guilty, (i.e., he is guilty by his mere existence) for merely having the audacity of being alive. There is a pervasive feeling among many White Americans that their world would be much more secure if all young Black males were imprisoned, solitarily confined to their ghettos, or kept under constant surveillance.”

After SeQuette Clark watched her son’s character questioned on television, she told national reporters it was “a smear campaign.” Land then stepped in at her request to field all other questions for the family.

Land said the family now hope to change the legal standards governing police use of deadly force. The state legislature is due to consider a measure this spring — AB 392 — that would tweak the rules in a fundamental way that advocates say would not increase the dangers officers face.

Under the current standards, Buchen said, “an officer can kill someone in any situation where it is reasonable to do so. It doesn’t matter if they had access to a taser, or if they could have retreated safely.” AB 392 would retain the prohibition on evaluating officer actions through information they didn’t have at the time. But it would require officers to exhaust all other reasonable and safe options before they resort to deadly force.

“We’re using the same vantage point but asking a different question,” Buchen said. “Instead of ‘Was it reasonable for an officer to do this?,’ the question is, ‘Was it necessary?'”

Such a change in law would modify the question prosecutors like Schubert get charged with answering in cases like Clark’s. But it wouldn’t change the dynamics surrounding her separate choice to invite the press to further scrutinize Clark’s personal conduct in their coverage of the city’s reaction to her decision.

The information Schubert opted to share on camera immediately began to recast Clark in the court of public opinion. {White] Reporters took up the prosecutor’s invitation to chase the sorts of “he was no angel” stories that often dog families of color grieving a loved one struck down by cops in questionable circumstances.

The Clarks saw an immediate effect from Schubert’s choice, Land said, as national media pumped them for reaction quotes over the ensuing 48 hours.

“Now what are people reporting? What are people curious about? People want to know about the text messages, about the drugs, about was he in fact suicidal, the comments on social media,” said Land.

According to Land, the Clark family now worries the public conversation will follow the press conference’s lead, painting Clark’s character with an overly broad brush: “He was a thug, he was a woman-beater, he was this that and the other.”

Those tawdry simplifications, Land said, encourage the public to look past harder and broader pieces of Clark’s story. “He was 23 years old. He was in a community that has been economically disenfranchised. And oftentimes there is this vacuum, this feeling that there is no way out.”

Brookings Institute Study says Cities with Majority Black Populations are on the Rise: there are 1,262 Black-majority cities, an increase of more than 100 cities Since 2010

According to a report from the Brookings Institute, American cities in which blacks constitute a majority of the population—what they call “black-majority cities”—are on the rise. They include the core cities of metropolitan areas like Detroit, Baltimore, and Memphis as well as smaller suburban municipalities like East Cleveland, Ohio,Wilkinsburg, Pa., and Ferguson, Mo. Black-majority cities (which include cities, towns, and other census-designated places) numbered 460 at the 1970 census, and 1,148 by the 2010 census. And, as of the latest census estimates (2017), there are now 1,262 black-majority cities, an increase of more than 100 such cities during this decade alone.

Black-majority cities are rising amid a national conversation surrounding whether they can improve and develop while retaining their black majority. With these places often beset by white flight and home devaluation, which totals $156 billion in losses nationally, planners and sociologists use ominous words like “gentrification,” “merger,” “annexation,” “bankruptcy,” and “de-annexation” to convey a positive strategy for renewal and growth in black-majority cities.

Yet black-majority cities have assets worth building upon, investing in, and fighting for. Black-majority neighborhoods hold $609 billion in owner-occupied housing assets and are home to approximately 10,000 public schools and over 3 million businesses, according to a recent Brookings-Gallup analysis on home values. But none of these assets are greater than the people and culture within black-majority cities. Black-majority cities matter like the black lives in them. The fight for leaders to retain autonomy and sovereignty—while demanding respect—reflects their recognition of the value in black-majority cities.

HOW DID THE NEW BLACK-MAJORITY CITIES COME ABOUT?

From 1970 to 2010, the total number of census-recognized cities grew by nearly 50 percent. But most of today’s black-majority cities—more than 800 of the 1,148 in 2010—already existed in some form in 1970. Moreover, the black share of the U.S. population rose only slightly over this period, from 11.1 percent in 1970 to 12.6 percent in 2010. Therefore, the emergence of black-majority cities reflects more than anything else a changing demographic landscape between and within cities. A new great migration and intra-metropolitan movement have reshaped urban, suburban, and rural communities, facilitating the rise of today’s black-majority cities.

An existing city’s transition to a black-majority can occur as both black and non-black populations either increase or decrease. To better understand the demographic dynamics giving rise to black-majority cities, Figure 1 below indicates where these cities fall within a typology based on the direction in which total black and non-black populations have trended. Each dot represents an individual black city. We apply this typology to all U.S. cities in which population figures exist for each decennial census from 1970 to 2010, and the median total population of those figures exceeds 2,500. However, only the black-majority cities (as of 2010) are shown in Figure 1. [report & graphs are [HERE]

  • Cities in the Boomtowns quadrant gained both black and non-black population from 1970 to 2010.

  • Cities in the White Flight quadrant gained black population, but experienced a decrease in non-black (largely white) population.

  • Cities in the Suburbanized quadrant lost both black and non-black population.

  • Cities in the Gentrified quadrant lost black population, but gained non-black population. [MORE]

Cleveland Police Union Appeals Firing of White Cop who Shot Tamir Rice to Death in an Effort to Force His Unwanted "Public Service" Back Onto the Community

tamir+rice+cop.jpg

From [HERE] Nearly five years after Tamir Rice was killed by an overzealous cop, the police union involved was looking to vindicate the officer who fired the fatal shots into the 12-year-old boy. The Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association (CPPA) on Friday filed an appeal to overturn the termination of former officer Timothy Loehmann, arguing that he was fired for something not related to the shooting.

“Officer Loehmann has been treated unfairly by the city and the arbitration,” Police Union president Jeff Follmer told a local Fox affiliate after the appeal was filed. “We are hoping whatever county judge receives this appeal will go on the merits of fact and not political pressure.” 

In 2017, Loehmann was fired when it came to light that he had resigned from a previous department after six months when several supervisors determined he was unfit to be a police officer. That information was not disclosed on his application with the Cleveland Police Department, which an arbitrator determined was a lie and upheld the city’s decision to fire the disgraced officer in December. 

Loehmann had only been with Cleveland for eight months when he shot Rice, who was playing in a park with an Airsoft pellet gun, in November 2014. A racist suspect resident called 9-1-1 and gave the dispatch the misleading impression that an adult Black man, possible a military veteran, was at a park filled with people, threatening them with a gun. Loehmann and his partner Officer Frank Garmback responded to the dispatch’s subsequent call. Video of the incident caused widespread outrage not just because of Rice’s age, but also because he was shot within 4 seconds of police arriving on the scene. The police cruiser was still moving when Loehmann shot Rice on the spot. It is myth repeated by white media that he was holding a toy gun. Tamir died with the toy gun still in his waistband and no other people were present in the park. The toy was not out or visible when the cops were present. As such, no perceived crime was ongoing when they arrived and the cops did not have reasonable suspicion to stop, seize and shoot Tamir. When the cops arrived they could see they were in not in danger. But racist suspects have stories to tell. [MORE]

“I hope that justice prevails and the arbitrator’s ruling is reversed,” Henry Hilow, CPPA attorney told Cleveland.com on Sunday.

tamir+rice+prosecutor+.jpg

Garmback was merely suspended and Loehmann was cleared from any charges in the shooting. Another police department in Ohio hired Loehmann last year. Bellaire Police Chief Richard Flanagan said at the time that he hired Loehmann because he believes “he deserves a second chance. He was cleared of any and all wrongdoing. He was never charged. It’s over and done with.”

The attorney for the Rice family, Subodh Chandra, released a statement following news of the appeal. 

“It is most unfortunate that the CPPA continues to insist it’s okay for a law enforcement officer to lie on his employment application—that is, continues to embrace lawlessness in law enforcement,” Chandra said. “Until the police union comprehends its officers are not above the law, none of us are safe. And Tamir? With a police union as lawless as that, the child never stood a chance.” 

With Crime Low in DC, the Police Chief's Call for the Use of Stop & Frisk Reveals that "Police Work" is Not Primarily About Safety but Managing Blacks & Controlling Their Freedom of Movement

bowser stupid strawboss.jpg

Sean Blackmon, an organizer and communications director for Stop Police Terror Project DC. wrote in a letter to the [WashPost] that “D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham’s [racist suspect in photo] Feb 24 letter, “MPD: Stop and frisk is essential,” was a mass of inconsistencies, untruths and fear mongering.

In February, Mr. Newsham testified under oath that the Metropolitan Police Department does not practice stop and frisk, then repeatedly used the same term to describe incidents with community members. In his letter, he said, in essence, “Yes, D.C. police use stop and frisk, but in a legal manner.” Yet the public doesn’t know exactly how MPD uses stop and frisk because the department is ignoring the law requiring detailed data collection and reporting.

What we do have is a mountain of evidence suggesting MPD uses stop and frisk in the same racist, unconstitutional manner as in New York. For instance, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan recently dismissed a gun possession case because MPD “randomly trawl[ed] high crime neighborhoods asking occupants who fit a certain statistical profile.” Over six years, courts dismissed about 40 percent of D.C. gun possession cases, suggesting pervasive unconstitutional behavior by MPD. In the nearly 50 years since the Supreme Court allowed for limited stop and frisks, the evidence has shown the practice is racist and ineffective and actually makes people less safe.”

Driven to please her white masters desires Black strawboss Muriel Bowser is oblivious to reality. Violent crime in the District is down overall. [MORE]. The elite white media makes much of the fact that the year 2018 ended with 160 homicides on the books —a 38 percent increase from the previous year. [MORE] However, such statistics are taken out of context: the DC murder rate hit historic lows in 2017 with only 116 homicides. Yet this is nothing compared to what it was; in 1991 there were 482 murders and 443 and 454 murders respectively in 1992 and 1993. These numbers are on a substantial downward decline in general. See Chart below.

But elite racist suspects have white supremacy & Black inferiority to sell. As explained by Dr. Amos Wilson,

Black criminals function as a negative reference group vital to maintaining the White American self-image. The Black criminal is used to support the White American community's self-serving, self-justifying judgments of itself. White America's preoccupation with Black criminality betrays its own need for reassurance; betrays its own basic insecurity regarding its projected moral purity. Consequently, the higher the incidence of reported Black criminality, the more exceptionally righteous White America feels itself to be. The more righteous it feels itself to be the more intensely and guiltlessly it promulgates and justifies its domination and exploitation of African peoples at home and abroad. [MORE]

The push for stop and frisk while crime low is further proof that our so-called “Constitutional rights” are just mere belief held in our minds. Rights exist if you believe they exist and an authoritarian shares in the illusion. Brazen cops so frequently abuse their power that no Black or Brown motorist, juvenile, adult, professional of any kind—could make a compelling argument that constitutional rights afford any real protection from the state on the street. In so far as Constitutional rights were designed to keep us free of government interference and intrusions as we go about our daily business on the streets in our homes, “your writes” are just words on paper – believe in them at your own risk. What we perceive as rights are really master’s privileges with his free range prison.

The racist suspect police chief’s advocacy as an unelected official to impose unwanted “public services” onto Black people also reveals the true nature of policing and authority in a so-called democracy. Alex Vitale explains “It is largely a liberal fantasy that the police exist to protect us from the bad guys.” He states, racist suspect liberals project 

“a fantasy of color blindness that says the police response is merely a professional technocratic response to where the crime is, but ignore the ways in which our society has been structured along racialized lines and the ways in which poverty in the United States is growing and becoming more entrenched. This includes a lot of white rural communities that are suffering from opioids and other kinds of crime problems.

Our political leaders have chosen to define those communities as criminal rather than as communities that are in deep distress because of entrenched joblessness, discrimination, geographic isolation, etc. If they were to admit that the problems in those communities were the result of market failures, rather than individual moral failures, then they would have to intervene in markets in ways that those who put them in office don’t want them to. To address the problems of inequality in any way other than policing is politically unacceptable in our current political environment. . . . The reality is that the police exist primarily as a system for managing and even producing inequality by suppressing social movements and tightly managing the behaviors of poor and non-white people: those on the losing end of economic and political arrangements. [MORE] 

Police “authority” is used to manage the behaviors of non-white people within this free range prison. Any protection or service from cops is incidental and random - making us safe is not their primary goal.

It is also largely a “fantasy” that governments represent us. In the real world, “representative governments” are constantly doing things their subjects do not want them to do. [MORE]

In a system of injustice, Dr. Blynd observes, "people who are awake see cops as mercenary guards that remind us daily through acts of force, that we are simultaneously both enemies and slaves of the Corporate State - colonized, surveilled and patrolled by the desensitized and lobotomized drones of the colonizers." Their authority is not legitimate because none is - it is a main source of your oppression. It is rule through your coerced participation and nothing more.

Korean Proxymoron Atty Rewarded by Trump w/Judicial Nomination for Parroting White Lies, said ‘most crimes committed are black-on-black crimes" [Most crimes committed are Caucasian on Caucasian]

From [HERE] and [MORE] Two nominees to federal district courts in Texas breezed through their nomination hearing Tuesday morning, hours after Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee raised concerns about a Ninth Circuit nominee’s past writings on race.

Tuesday’s hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee was a rare one that did not include a circuit court nominee. Instead, the committee heard from Sean Jordan, who is up for a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, and Texas Second Court of Appeals Justice Mark Pittman, who is nominated to a position on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

Like most nominees to federal district courts, Jordan and Pittman faced few contentious questions from senators.

Running in the background of the hearing was the nomination of Kenneth Lee, a California attorney who is up for a spot on the Ninth Circuit. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, both California Democrats who sit on the Judiciary Committee, said in a statement Monday night that committee staff had late last week uncovered new controversial writings Lee did not initially turn over to the committee.  

Taylor Reidy, a spokeswoman for the Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday that the administration did not “turn over all of the routine nominations paperwork in time for Mr. Lee to be a witness” at Tuesday’s hearing. Reidy said the information was related to background checks, and not to the writings Feinstein and Harris mentioned Monday.

(See Gangbanking & Racism." [MORE]

Trump initially tapped Lee to the Ninth Circuit in November, but the Senate did not take action on his nomination before the end of the Congress. Trump announced at the end of January that he would be renominating Lee to the same position. 

Most of the articles Lee wrote that Harris and Feinstein mentioned in the statement are from his time as an undergrad at Cornell University, though one comes from 1999, when Lee was attending Harvard Law School. The senators said Lee turned over the articles only after Democrats requested them.

They also said Lee did not turn over a batch of writings to their judicial nominating commission and that he has not provided one article from 1996 that the committee requested on Friday.

“Not only does this indicate an intention to obstruct the vetting process, it indicates Lee may continue to hold extreme and troubling views on race, which would place him out of step with the mainstream legal community in California,” the senators said in a statement Monday. “The committee should not be moving forward with a hearing at any date.”

The articles Feinstein and Harris mentioned Monday appear similar to those that sank the nomination of Ryan Bounds, a Trump pick for the Ninth Circuit the White House withdrew after Senator Tim Scott, R-S.C., and other Republicans objected to racially insensitive writings from Bounds’ time as an undergrad.

According to the statement released Monday, Lee in one article wrote that “liberals rarely fault a black criminal for his crime, lest they appear racist.” Lee, who is a Korean immigrant, went on to write that the “majority of the crimes committed today are black-on-black crimes” and that “by having this lax attitude toward black crime, white liberals are allowing the majority of law-abiding African Americans to be continually victimized.”

In the other article, Lee defended The Cornell Review for publishing a parody of Ebonics.

"If the Oakland School Board provides politically correct, feel-good nonsense to poor urban blacks, Cornell University does the same for middle-class and affluent blacks," Lee wrote during his time as an undergraduate at Cornell. "The university has justly garnered a notorious reputation for championing racial group-think and multicultural dogma."

Democrats may also grill Lee over his college writings on AIDS and LGBT people. In an articlein The Cornell Review, Lee wrote that “homosexuals generally are more promiscuous than heterosexuals” and that to avoid AIDS “one has to only abstain from drug-use and promiscuity.”

“So simple, yet so hard to grasp,” Lee wrote.

Lee currently works as a partner at the Los Angeles firm Jenner & Block, a job he has held since 2009. He also spent time in the George W. Bush administration, working as associate counsel and special assistant to the president from 2006 to 2009.

[White Privilege in a System of White Presumacy] Although She has Never Tried a Case, Senate Approves White Woman to Federal Judgeship on the 4th Circuit Ct of Appeals w/a Lifetime Appointment

From [HERE] The Senate on Tuesday confirmed a Washington, D.C., lawyer to a position on the Fourth Circuit, as she overcame concerns from Democrats who raised questions about her relatively limited time practicing law.

Approved by a 53-44 vote, Allison Jones Rushing has been out of law school since 2007 and is shy of the 12 years of legal experience the American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary suggests for nominees to federal judgeships. Despite falling short of this guideline, Rushing received a qualified rating from the organization.

Since 2011, Rushing has worked at the Washington, D.C., firm Williams & Connolly, becoming a partner at the firm in 2017. Her work there focuses on Supreme Court and appellate litigation and she has filed more than 45 briefs to the Supreme Court and worked on 50 appeals in courts across the country.

While Rushing told senators she has handled cases in the Fourth Circuit, she is not currently licensed to practice law in her native North Carolina, even though she is tapped for a North Carolina seat on the court. She told senators who raised questions about this fact that most of her work is in appellate courts, which do not require an attorney to be licensed with a given state bar to practice.

A member of the right-wing Federalist Society, Rushing’s resume also boasts clerkships with three conservative judges – then-10th Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch, D.C. Circuit Judge David Sentelle and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. However, clerkships do not qualify anyone to practice to law.

Rushing told the Senate Judiciary Committee her experience practicing before appellate courts and her time working closely with experienced judges has left her prepared for a seat on the federal bench, despite being out of law school for less time than many other judicial nominees.

“My experience in the federal courts of appeals and the Supreme Court are why I’m qualified,” Rushing said at her nomination hearing in October. “Not only the depth of that experience, but the variety. The judges on the courts of appeals get a wide variety of cases and I have that experience. In criminal law, prison petitions, product liability, intellectual property, commercial disputes, constitutional issues, a vast array of federal statutes. I’ve litigated all of those cases on appeal and I will be ready when those cases come before me if I am so fortunate as to be confirmed.” “Litigation” is actual legal work done in trial courts by trial lawyers in bench or jury trials on behalf of client. Appellant work consists mostly of writing court filings and legal research in cases that have already been decided.

Rushing also faced questions about her time as an intern at the Alliance Defense Fund. Now known as the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Southern Poverty Law Center has listed the organization as an anti-LGBT hate group.

She told senators that she never saw anyone at the group “expressing or advocating hate,” and noted many people affiliated with the organization have gone on to prominent careers.

“Members of Congress, including members of this committee, have filed amicus briefs in the Supreme Court supporting ADF’s positions,” Rushing told Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., in response to questions submitted in writing after her nomination hearing. “I do not think members of this committee or large reputable law firms would work with a hate group. I certainly would not.” 

After confirming Rushing, the Senate advanced the nomination of Chad Readler, who is up for a seat on the Sixth Circuit, setting up a confirmation vote later this week.

From [HERE] JPMorgan Chase & Co has decided to stop financing private operators of prisons and detention centres, which have become targets of protests over Trump administration immigration policies.

“We will no longer bank the private prison industry,” a company spokesman told Reuters. The decision is a result of the bank’s ongoing evaluations of the costs and benefits of serving different industries, he said.

JPMorgan is one of several banks that have underwritten bonds or syndicated loans for CoreCivic Inc and GEO Group Inc, the two major private prison operators in the United States. In 2018, banks, including Bank of America Corp and Wells Fargo & Co, raised roughly $1.8 billion in debt over three deals for CoreCivic and GEO Group, according to Refinitiv data.

Wells Fargo said in January it was reducing its relationship with the prison industry as part of its “environmental and social risk management” process.

“Our credit exposure to private prison companies has significantly decreased and is expected to continue to decline, and we are not actively marketing to that sector,” Wells Fargo said in its “Business Standards Report” for 2018.

Prison finance is a small business for JPMorgan, the biggest bank in the United States by assets. JPMorgan was a leader in 1,153 loan deals worth $354 billion across all industries, according to Refinitiv data.

Prison companies account for about 10 percent of federal and state prison beds, according to Moody’s Investors Service. But about two-thirds of people held by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are in private detention centres, S&P Global Ratings estimated last year.

Moody's and S&P Global have speculative grade, or junk, credit ratings on CoreCivic and GEO Group partly because their revenues are at risk to changes in government policy and public scrutiny of companies profiting from detention. (reut.rs/2H4JOf5)

After the Obama administration in August 2016 directed the Bureau of Prisons to phase out federal use of private prisons, shares of both companies plunged more than 40 percent. One month after Donald Trump became president, the order was rescinded and the stocks rebounded.

Activism against the financing of private prisons heated up after revelations that undocumented minors were being separated from their adult parents.

TRUMP REVERSES POLICY

The Trump administration reversed its separation policy after a public outcry.

CoreCivic spokesman Steven Owen called JPMorgan’s decision “disappointing.” He said in an email that “decisions like this are being based on false information spread by politically motivated special interests, who completely mischaracterize our company.”

None of CoreCivic’s immigration facilities house children who are not under the supervision of a parent, Owen said.

A GEO Group spokesman said in an email that the company “has never managed facilities that house unaccompanied minors.” He added, “We welcome the opportunity to have an open dialogue with all financial institutions to address the common mischaracterisations of our company’s role and record as a government services provider.”

CoreCivic changed its name from Corrections Corporation of America in October 2016. It said the rebranding was to highlight its strategy to transform its business “from largely corrections and detentions centres to a wider range of government services.”

In 2018 prisons and detention centres still accounted for 87 percent of CoreCivic’s net operating income, according to a recent presentation from the company to investors. It had 72,833 beds in prisons and detention centres.

JPMorgan’s move away from the industry comes after activists have challenged Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon at the bank’s last two annual meetings over its financing of prison companies.

Protest groups have also appeared regularly outside of Dimon’s Manhattan apartment. On Valentine’s Day, a group appeared with a mariachi band and signs that begged the executive to “break up with prisons.”

At the May 2017 annual meeting, Dimon promised to look in to prison finance. In June, Dimon and the Business Roundtable, a group of CEOs that he chairs, issued public statements calling for immigration reform and an end to the Trump administration policy of separating minors from their parents.

No Need for Blackface Anymore b/c Elite Racists Have Created an Army of SNiggering Negro Rolebots to Showcase as "Entrainment" in “The Spectacle"

kevin hart 2.jpg

Mainstream media is mind control and part of white supremacy is the annihilation of Black self respect. As explained by Amos Wilson, "the most powerful obstacle against the liberation of Afrikan peoples from White domination and exploitation is not the ability of Whites to use superior military or police firepower or their threat to use it against Afrikan insurgency, but is their ability to engage in unrelenting psychopolitical violence against the collective Afrikan psyche." [MORE] 'Their devastatingly ingenious use of it against the minds of Afrikan peoples which represent the greatest threat to Afrikan survival.' [MORE

Undeceiver Dr. Blynd explains that said strategy is carried out through propaganda and propagenda or a means of predictive programming for accepting someone’s agenda as their very own.

There is no need for blackface today. Through the refinement of racism white supremacy elite racists have created an army of “Showcase Blacks” or rolebotic negros to SNigger, bounce or probotically parrot their masters in service of white domination and subservience to authority. “A role-bot merely plays the role of the mask - the personae - society issued and approved.” "Showcase Blacks" are high-profile blacks that are constantly paraded before the public. They may be political dignitaries, pro athletes, entertainers, educators, business people, judges or elected officials. They are a necessary illusion of the media, which Dr. Blynd calls  a "mind shampoo"- helping to shape the thoughts and understandings of non-white people. Anon explains their purpose is to mask the REALITY of being black in America. [MORE] They also function to assist in the further falsification of Afrikan consciousness, maintaining Black people in a state of deception about the actual context in which they live - a system of racism white supremacy and corporate police state - and function as rolebots used to foster cooperative control and imaginary social relations Blacks and other non-whites have with whites, themselves and Government.

The end product is a mind filled with lies, non-realities and self-hatred. FUNKTIONARY explains, “Entertainment is mental masturbation bringing you to indoctrination—coming into your (five) senses. The goal of entertainment is entrainment—to rot the minds of the populace—that is, what's left of them.” Dr. Amos Wilson explains, "consciousness is the premier instrument of social control. Those who represent and exercise societal and cultural authority seek to shape and direct the conciseness of each of the society's and culture's members in ways which maintain their integrity and advance their interests." [MORE] Osho elaborates, 'the conscious is cultivated by the society, it is a conditioning. The conscious means society inside you. It is a trick of society. This created mind creates a prison around you.' [MORE] Our manipulated consciousness renders Blacks and other non-whites “pliable to White authoritarian/authoritative social control with minimal resistance; which induce Blacks to accept their subordinate status as natural, perhaps actually to misperceive their oppression as freedom."

Thus, with the showcasing of such rolebots the refinement of racism white supremacy has no further use for Blackface. They have priceless value to racists in the system of racism white supremacy and are rewarded handsomely for their activities. Nevertheless, as the creations of elite corporate & governmental racist suspects, they are rewarded & punished for their conduct and are all essentially disposable, interchangeable and easily replaced.

HA HA HA. Sambo entertainer jokes about slavery. Walking corpse, go fuck yourself.

Among other things a SNigger is a traitor. Naturally people go out searching for the world presented to them on TV, movies, other media, text books, etc during a life-time of indoctrination. People also imitate what they have seen and seek to fit in or conform with the crowd as they depend on and fear the opinions of others similarly affected. Unlike back in the day, there are literally thousands of showcase Blacks who are being showcased by elites on various entertainment and sports media outlets - playing their roles for us to emulate and showing us how to relate to one another. Anon states that the constant stream of buffoonery and childishness in “The Spectacle” from Black entertainers “make it harder for every black man, woman, and child to get respect at home, at work, on the street, in the courts, at the mortgage company, and at the hands of law enforcement.

By supporting and defending black "entertainers" who degrade black people for profit, WE are making life harder for every black male who applies for a job and is denied one because he has been stereotyped as an irresponsible fool before he opens his mouth. WE are making life harder for our black mothers, daughters, wives, and lovers to get the respect they deserve, when they are publicly referred to as "bitches" and "hos" by us. Yet we — black people -- demand respect as "black people" even when it is obvious we DO NOT RESPECT ourselves?" [MORE]

According to FUNKTIONARY

The Spectacle - a constructed reality; the concrete inversion of life; via the autonomous movement of the apparently non-living. 2) the mirrorization of the noumenon into the phenomenal universe without understanding or overstanding it as such an objectivization in duality. The Spectacle is not a collection of images but a social relation among people mediated by images. The Spectacle is a theoretical construct—a tool for explaining many things about society; how people live vicariously through the dominant images of production, consumption and power relations. It is the thoughtfofms in which people create, contemplate and consume mediated by images of what-life-is, so that they will forget how to live radically for themselves. It is the totality of images and illusions that alienate people from living, its the primary production of modern societies. It is ideology materialized. It is the social relations that are mediated by the mass media; it is what makes people apathetic and reduces them to inactivity. It is what prevents people from realizing what their collective problems are and dissolving them. It is what perpetually absorbs people into activities that prolong their misery. It is the mediated stream of unreality that channels desire-energy against itself, producing a separate world, a pseudo-world apart form one's self-history—from all those powerful institutions of Self-actualization. It is what motivates people to live a pseudo-life in submission to products and machines, basking passively in the acceptance of oppression, to blindly do what is manifestly against their own self-interest, to pollute the land they love and the air they breathe—it is a fundamental sickness of modern societies superimposed over and aided by the "Rolebots" (clones and drones) of Corporate State. It is the mass media and the propaganda from the pure war machine and the military prison industrial police state complex. It is Doggy, the double-bind of not knowing real from unreal, (hypereal) or what you say from what you want. It is the mass objectivization and unholy marriage (union) of the Beasthood with the Syndrome, leaving people fragmented, separated, isolated, alienated, fascinated, pixelated, dilated, intimidated, exasperated, mediated, concatenated, weak, docile, dependent, submissive and uncritical. ''The Spectacle is the ultimate commodity in that it makes all others possible." -Scott Bukatman.

Ma'afa - {Kiswahili)—word-concept that means the ''Great Suffering" of Afrikans at the hands of the Europeans (Caucasian consciousness, i.e., the White Presumacy of White Supremacy) in the Western hemisphere. 2) the great disconnection from the cultural womb of Mother Africa by her kidnapped and enslaved children into foreign lands. The Ma'afa (a uniquely Afrikan experience perpetrated against Afrikans) carries the Yurugu virus. The process of the Ma'afa is Europeans committing cultural genocide (i.e., the killing of the genes) against Afrikan people with the main objective of erasing our cultural memory, which by design, breaking down the cultural (immune system) of the Afrikan people. In the Ma'afa we become the host for the Yurugu virus.

To Maintain a Continuous State of Checkmate Elite Racists Intend to Keep Black People in a Childish Condition

FUNKTIONARY explains that among other things, the imbalanced power between Blacks and whites in the system of racism white supremacy (a system most white people participate in) is maintained through cooperative control. ‘Racism/white supremacy is a power group dynamic involving a master-servant relationship between whites and Blacks in a system of vast unequal power and conditions.No one can play master without servants - it is a two way relationship and most Black people, subconsciously or consciously, consensually play along with it - playing a servant role. Dr. Amos Wilson explains, “the oppressive configuration the White man has assumed in relationship to the Black man is in good part the result of the fact that we have permitted ourselves to remain in a complementary subordinate configuration conducive to his oppressive designs.”

He explains, ‘We empower whites by the nature of our own behavior and attitudes as a people. They cannot be what they are, unless we are, what we are. To a good extent, the European is our creation … yes. If we look at our behavior, we will see that to a good extent, it is our behavior, our values, our consciousness, the kind of personalities we’ve established in ourselves, our taste, our desires and needs; that maintains the European in their dominant position.’ [MORE]  

Neely Fuller explains “as long as any non-white person submits to, and/or cooperates with White Supremacy (racism), that non-white person is, for all functional purposes, a child.”

Neely Fuller explains that in a system of racism white supremacy ‘non-white people, regardless of age function as children. They are the servants to, the victims of, and the "children” under the power and direction of elite racists. Elite racists function as their parents, bosses, masters, and their major decision-makers.’ Elite racists hope and intend to keep all non-white people in a childish condition.’

A Hyper-Alert Neuropean Woman Called the Cops after a Dog Belonging to a Black Man Humped her Dog in a Way She Deemed Inappropriate

Ibn Safir at {theRoot} writes “As a lover and former owner of dogs and a longtime resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, (God save it!) you can color me shocked.

In a video released online on Wednesday, a white woman at the Attleboro Dog Park in Attleboro, Mass., can be seen calling the police after a dog belonging to a black man humped her dog in a way she deemed inappropriate.

The as-yet-unidentified woman, dubbed “Dog Park Diane” by social media users, can be seen telling police that Franklin Baxley, the dog’s owner, was verbally assaulting her. Baxley, an employment attorney according to his LinkedIn, told the cucumber from Veggie Tales that he was not verbally assaulting her. “I told you, I’m not leaving,” Baxley added.

Baxley then read the license plate number of the car belonging to Yung Kirstie Alley while urging the public to look her up.

A friend of the crypt keeper’s great-granddaughter (with bangs from the halcyon days of WHAM!) can be seen telling Baxley his dog’s behavior was “inappropriate for the dog park.” Baxley cited the frequency of dog foreplay at the park, telling dye-job Momo and her Danzig-favoring friend that he had “seen every single dog hump another dog here.”

Baxley’s interaction with the real-life Zoey Howzer, whose dog can be seen resuming its play-date with Baxley’s, took a turn for the weirder in a separate video. “This is not shameful,” said the clean-shorn Lhasa Apso, “you know what is? Yelling at me and assaulting a woman.”

“I can yell at you because you’re yelling at me,” Baxley responded. “Are you people serious?” Baxley exclaimed, undoubtedly reeling from the lowering of his IQ thanks to the presence of Sephiroth, Final Fantasy VII’s most dangerous villain.” [MORE]

From [ThinkProgress] The West Virginia statehouse on Friday allowed an Islamophobic organization to display an anti-Muslim poster targeting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress.

WV Act for America — designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-Muslim hate group — placed the poster outside the chamber to commemorate the state’s GOP day.

The poster depicted an image of Omar beneath an image of the burning World Trade Center towers with the words, “‘Never Forget’” — You said.. I am proof that you have forgotten.” Act for America also distributed anti-Muslim articles and pamphlets, including one entitled, “Readin’, Writin’, and Jihadin’ The Islamization of America Public Schools.”

A neuropeon woman who was exhibiting literature at a table in the rotunda during the WVGOP Day at the Capitol put up the poster, CNN affiliate WCHS reported. Her name wasn't immediately available. [MORE]

The anti-Muslim display was the second Omar has faced in one day. On Friday, the congresswoman tweeted an image of graffiti at a gas station in her home state which said, “Assassinate Ilhan Omar.”

“No wonder why I am on the ‘Hitlist’ of a domestic terrorist and ‘Assassinate Ilhan Omar’ is written on my local gas station,” Omar wrote on Twitter Friday.

But Omar largely dealt with the racism on her own. Few lawmakers spoke out against the West Virginia GOP for allowing the poster to be displayed. On Saturday evening, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) noted the members of Congress who criticized Omar weeks ago over her unintentional use of an anti-Semitic trope in a tweet about the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) should defend her against the racism she faces on an almost daily basis.

“I’m pretty heartbroken that there isn’t more denunciation of this outward and blatant expression of bigotry and Islamophobia by a state party,” she said. “[In my opinion] those who stood up against anti-Semitism a few weeks ago should also be calling out the Islamophobia here, too.”

Indeed, at the time of publication, neither Democratic leaders in the House and Senate — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — had publicly condemned the actions of the West Virginia GOP.

Across the aisle, Republicans who slammed Omar for employing an anti-Semitic trope, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), remained silent about the racism she has been facing over the weekend.

Supreme Court says the 8th Amendment Forbids Alabama Authorities from Murdering Black Man w/Dementia Found Guilty of Murdering White Cop

From [DPIC] and [EJI] The United States Supreme Court today ruled in favor of EJI client Vernon Madison, a 68-year-old man suffering from severe vascular dementia following multiple life-threatening strokes. The Court held that Mr. Madison, who is legally blind, incontinent, cannot walk without a walker, speaks with slurred speech, and has no memory of the crime or the circumstances that brought him to death row, is entitled to an assessment that recognizes that dementia and other mental conditions are covered by the Eighth Amendment's ban against cruel and unusual punishment.

"We are thrilled that today the Court recognized that people with dementia like Vernon Madison, who cannot consistently orient to time and place, are protected from execution and cruel and unusual punishment under the Eighth Amendment," said EJI Executive Director Bryan Stevenson, who argued Mr. Madison's case. "Prisoners who become incompetent due to dementia and severe mental illness are vulnerable and should be shielded from abusive and cruel treatment. The Court's opinion affirming the basic principle of a humane system of justice is a significant victory."

In a 5-3 decision written by Justice Elena Kagan, the Court explained that the Eighth Amendment bars executing a person whose mental disorder makes him unable to reach a rational understanding of the reason for his execution.

The critical question is whether a “prisoner’s mental state is so distorted by a mental illness” that he lacks a “rational understanding” of “the State’s rationale for [his] execution.”  Or similarly put, the issue is whether a “prisoner’s concept of reality” is “so impair[ed]” that he cannot grasp the execution’s “meaning and purpose” or the “link between [his] crime and its punishment.”

Contrary to the State of Alabama's argument in state court that this precedent does not apply to Mr. Madison because he is suffering from dementia rather than psychotic delusions, the Court held that "a person suffering from dementia may be unable to rationally understand the reasons for his sentence; if so, the Eighth Amendment does not allow his execution."

The Court reasoned that the standard "focuses on whether a mental disorder has had a particular effect: an inability to rationally understand why the State is seeking execution." The standard does not require "establishing any precise cause: Psychosis or dementia, delusions or overall cognitive decline are all the same under Panetti, so long as they produce the requisite lack of comprehension."

The Court returned the case to the state court for renewed consideration of whether Mr. Madison is competent under the Eighth Amendment. It barred the state court from relying on arguments or evidence tainted by legal error, including portions of the experts' reports and testimony that "expressly reflect[] an incorrect view of the relevance of delusions or memory" as well as other evidence that "might have implicitly rested on those same misjudgments."

Madison was found guilty of shooting [Reuters report] Julius Schulte, a police officer, twice in the back of the head at close range in 1985. [MORE]

Madison was sentenced to death in 1994 in his third trial after his first two convictions were thrown out on appeal for racial discrimination in jury selection and other prosecutorial misconduct.

US Media Ignores Report from UN Investigator Finding “No Humanitarian Crisis" in Venezuela, but the Weaponization of a Manufactured Economic Crisis by Yurugu Territorial Gangsters to Steal Resources

UN report states: “A disquieting media campaign seeks to force observers into a preconceived view that there is a “humanitarian crisis” in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. An independent expert must be wary of hyperbole, bearing in mind that “humanitarian crisis” is a terminus technicus that can be misused as a pretext for military intervention.

Instead, international solidarity with the Venezuelan people should facilitate the free flow of food and medicines in order to alleviate the current scarcity. Help should be genuinely humanitarian and not pursue ulterior political purposes. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Caritas Internationalis and other organizations could assist in coordinating the importation and distribution of aid; the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation could help wipe out malaria in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

…Although the situation in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has not yet reached the humanitarian crisis threshold, there is hunger, malnutrition, anxiety, anguish and emigration. What is crucial is to study the causes of the crisis, including neglected factors of sanctions, sabotage, hoarding, black market activities, induced inflation and contraband in food and medicines.”

The “crisis” in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is an economic crisis, which cannot be compared with the humanitarian crises in Gaza, Yemen, Libya, the Syrian Arab Republic, Iraq, Haiti, Mali, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Somalia, or Myanmar, among others. It is significant that when, in 2017, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela requested medical aid from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the plea was rejected, because it ”is still a high-income country … and as such is not eligible”. During his mission, the Independent Expert discussed the issues of food and medicine scarcity with experts from FAO and obtained pertinent data from the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean. The December 2017 FAO report and the March 2018 report list food crises in 37 countries. The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is not among them.”

It is pertinent to recall the situation in the years prior to the election of Hugo Chávez, when the International Monetary Fund (IMF) imposed on Venezuela the “Washington consensus” of restructuring programmes, austerity and privatization (see A/72/1787), which led to mass public demonstrations and a military crackdown, the Caracazo of 1989, leaving some 3,000 dead. Corruption was ubiquitous and in 1993, President Carlos Pérez was removed because of embezzlement. The Chávez election in 1998 reflected despair with the corruption and neo-liberal policies of the 1980s and 1990s, and rejection of the gulf between the super-rich and the abject poor. International monitoring of elections in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Participatory democracy in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, called “protagónica”, is anchored in the Constitution of 1999 and relies on frequent elections and referendums. During the mission, the Independent Expert exchanged views with the Electoral Commission and learned that in the 19 years since Chávez, elections and referendums had been conducted, 4 of them observed by the Carter Center. The Independent Expert met with the representative of the Carter Center in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, who recalled Carter’s positive assessment of the electoral system. They also discussed the constitutional objections raised by the opposition to the referendum held on 30 July 2017, resulting in the creation of a Constitutional Assembly. Over 8 million Venezuelans voted in the referendum, which was accompanied by international observers,126 including from the Council of Electoral Specialists of Latin America. [MORE]

Yurugu - a mythological figure within the Dogon tribe (Africa) who is "the incomplete being" (fiend without a face) referring to Neuropeans (neurotic Europeans) within the European asili. 2) a regressive (degenerative) state of consciousness where the soul is cut off from itself. 3) the inability to recognize or abate unacknowledged destructive capabilities. Yurugu also expresses itself and manifests as the pathological condition that utterly fails to convince those in geographical proximity of its harmlessness, therefore has to kill them. Yurugu is in a vicious spiral increasingly at odds with his own humanity—as fragmented, pathological, and distorted as it is.

territorial gangsters - individuals (masquerading as "the State" so-called) who skillfully use fraud, coercion, and terror to claim "jurisdiction" (so-called) over their victims who happen to be in some geographic territory.
