UN World Population Study Shows the Declining White "Race" is Less than 10% of the World's 7.7 Billion Population [motivating racists to act Genocidally in a Perceived Survival Game w/Non-Whites]

“Whither goest thou white man?” From [the UN] The 2019 revision of the World Population Prospects is the twenty-sixth edition of the United Nations population estimates and projections. It presents population estimates from 1950 to the present for 235 countries or areas, underpinned by analyses of historical demographic trends. is latest assessment considers the results of 1,690 national population censuses conducted between 1950 and 2018, as well as information from vital registration systems and from 2,700 nationally representative sample surveys. e 2019 revision also presents population projections to the year 2100 that re ect a range of plausible outcomes at the global, regional and country levels.

The population estimates and projections presented in the World Population Prospects describe two of the four demographic megatrends (population growth and ageing), as well as key trends in human fertility, mortality, and net international migration that are integral to sustainable development. Collectively, these data constitute a critical piece of the evidence base for monitoring global progress towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

World Population Prospects 2019:

  • Confirms that the world’s population continues to grow, albeit at a slowing rate;

  • Points to the challenges facing some countries and regions related to rapid population growth driven by high fertility;

  • Notes that population size is decreasing in some countries due to sustained low fertility or emigration;

  • Underscores the opportunities available to countries where a recent decline in fertility is creating demographic conditions favourable for accelerated economic growth;

  • Highlights the unprecedented ageing of the world’s population;

  • Con rms the ongoing global increase in longevity and the narrowing gap between rich and poor countries, while also pointing to signi cant disparities in survival that persist across countries and regions;

  • Describes how international migration has become an important determinant of population growth and change in some parts of the world.

The report also explains:

The world’s population continues to grow, albeit at a slower pace than at any time since 1950. The world’s population reached 7.7 billion in mid- 2019, having added one billion people since 2007 and two billion since 1994.

e growth rate of the world’s population peaked in 1965-1970, when it was increasing by 2.1 per cent per year, on average. Since then, the pace of global population growth has slowed by half, falling below 1.1 per cent per year in 2015-2020, and it is projected to continue to slow through the end of this century.

The global population is expected to reach 8.5 billion in 2030, 9.7 billion in 2050 and 10.9 billion in 2100, according to the medium-variant projection, which assumes a decline of fertility for countries where large families are still prevalent, a slight increase of fertility in several countries where women have fewer than two live births on average over a lifetime, and continued reductions in mortality at all ages.

There is inherent uncertainty in population projections. At the global level that uncertainty depends on the range of plausible future trends in fertility, mortality and international migration, which have been assessed for each country or area using demographic and statistical methods. is analysis concludes that, with a certainty of 95 per cent, the size of the global population will stand between 8.5 and 8.6 billion in 2030, between 9.4 and 10.1 billion in 2050, and between 9.4 and 12.7 billion in 2100.

Caucasian -- "The incredible shrinking race; fiend without a face." - Chuck D, Public Enemy. 2) the complexion with the Good-Ole-Boy-Yurugu-Network connection (the GOBYN), not to be confused with OB_GYN). 3) one whose worst and most basic fear still remains genetic annihilation in the form of the fear of the impending "Black Planet." Whither goest thou white man? (See: Weiteko Disease, Yurungu, Western Civilization, Recessive Genes, Colored People, Melanin & Mutant).

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.

Although rarely discussed, white people are genetic recessive. It is scientific fact that Black is a genetically dominant trait. Whenever Black mixes with White, which is a recessive genetic trait, Black will dominate. In general, this means "whites" cannot reproduce a white child when they have sexual relations with non-whites. The so-called white "race" can and eventually will be replaced or "genetically annihilated" through such assimilation or social intermixing with non-whites. The declining white population is not a new or reversible trend - the decline has only quickened.

A recent Reuters poll reflects white people’s fear of replacement as 31% of participants agreed "America must protect and preserve its White European heritage” and 39 percent agreed with the statement that “White people are currently under attack in this country.” [MORE]

The "fear of replacement" and/or fear of losing control over non-whites fuels the system of white supremacy/racism and causes racists to act genocidally towards non-whites in a perceived "survival game" they are engaged in with non-whites. Racists believe the only way they can survive or not be replaced is by dominating non-white persons. As the world's true minority, the only way ‘white people’ could rule the world was by implementing a genocidal global program of deception, destruction, and domination - aka a war for genetic survival against non-whites. To racists, a failure to create such a system would lead to the disappearance of the "white race." As stated by Welsing, "if white people had not created such a global system in which they established power over the world's non-white majority, the white collective would have been genetically extinct a long time ago."

Welsing’s color confrontation theory explained that the more the white population shrinks the worse its conduct toward non-whites will get. Racists practice racism to survive, it is a strategy for white genetic survival [MORE] and the operating system of white supremacy functions to keep them alive in a position of global dominance. 

As stated by Cress Welsing, "the war for white genetic survival is conducted simultaneously on nine battle fronts: economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and (military) war."

Although, 90% of the world is non-white, 'everywhere one finds Whites and non-Whites in close proximity to each other, whether it is Chicago or Zimbabwe, the Whites are in control. This extraordinary universal phenomenon which defies every known statistical law of probability is rarely questioned by programmed, obedient Blacks in the U.S. [MORE]. Elite whites go through much effort [deception] to make white dominance and control over everything appear natural. [MORE]

From [HERE] India is set to overtake China as the world's most populous country in less than a decade, according to a new United Nations report.

China and India currently account for about 37% of the entire global population of roughly 7.7 billion, with China currently home to about 1.4 billion people and India to 1.3 billion.

But by 2027, India will have more people than China, according to the UN's 2019 World Population Prospects report released Monday, and by 2050 the gap is expected to have widened even further. "Between 2019 and 2050, 55 countries or areas are expected to see their populations decrease by at least 1%," the report said, mostly due to low-levels of fertility and in some cases, high numbers of emigration

"In the largest of these, China, the population is projected to shrink by 31.4 million, or 2.2 per cent."

That would put China's population at 1.1 billion, fewer than the 1.5 billion forecast for India.

By 2050, the report predicts the planet's entire population will be 9.7 billion people, a staggering rise in just one century.

Five years after the founding of the UN in 1950, the global population was a mere 2.6 billion people.

The UN compiles the report using demographic trends and relevant patterns in human fertility, mortality and migration. The aim is to provide governments with information as they work towards the UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

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.

In 1987 Welsing explained, “Few Blacks or other non-white people are aware that white people are conducting major discussions on the white birthrate. Few Blacks or other non-white people are aware that white scholars and experts are discussing the projection that by the year 2073, whites will represent fewer than 3% of the people on the planet. Few Blacks or other non-white people are aware that white experts are projecting that within six to nine generations, non-white people will represent the majority of people in U.S. Few Blacks or other non-white people are aware that these white experts are concluding that they will be left in a state of peril if these facts are ignored. The war for white genetic survival is conducted simultaneously on nine battle fronts: economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and (military) war. The war is conducted through all forms of behavior. In addition, within each of these areas of activity there have evolved myriad institutions, all of which further the goal of white supremacy.

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 and that they could depend upon whites to maximally develop Black infants, children and youth in the same manner that white people promote the maximal development of white infants, children and youth. 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. Black people must master this perception of racism (local and global) as a war for white genetic survival, a system into which non-white people never can be integrated.” [MORE]

Despite Moratorium, SNAG Jackie Lacey [Snitch Ass Negro Aiding Gov] Still Seeks the Death Penalty on Behalf of Her Genocidal Masters: Only Non-Whites Have Been Sentenced to Death During Her LA Tenure

BLIGHT SUPREMACY - genocide. FUNKTIONARY explains, Genocide is the primary means of maintaining Blight Supremacy.

From [HERE] Los Angeles has sentenced more people to death than any other county in the US, and only people of color have received the death penalty under the region’s current prosecutor, a new ACLU report shows.

LA county’s district attorney, Jackie Lacey, has won death sentences for a total of 22 defendants, all people of color, and eight of them were represented by lawyers with serious misconduct charges prior or after their cases, according to a new analysis by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The overwhelming majority of victims in homicide  cases in Los Angeles are persons of color.  Between  2000 and 2015, Latinx, Black, and Asian homicide  victims collectively comprised 87% of the victims of homicide in Los Angeles County, while white homicide victims constituted only 12%. Nonetheless, more than a third (36%) of the 22 defendants sentenced to death  during Lacey’s term involved at least one white victim.

Lacey’s office has also continued to pursue death penalty trials this year despite the fact that California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, issued a moratorium on capital punishment, with an executive order officially halting executions in the state.

ALSO WONT PROSECUTE COPS WHO KILL BLACKS & LATINOS. Lacey has also faced intense scrutiny for her refusal to prosecute police officers who kill Black and Latino civilians, even in the most egregious circumstances, such as Reginald Thomas, a Black man who cops piled on, stepped on his neck, punched, kicked & struck him in the head w/ batons causing his death [MORE] or last year when she refused to file charges against LAPD officer Clifford Proctor for shooting and killing Brendon Glenn despite LAPD Chief Charlie Beck recommending Lacey prosecute Proctor. [MORE] More than 200 deaths have occurred at the hands of law enforcement since Lacey took office in 2012, according to BLMLA. [MORE] She has not prosecuted a single cop in any of said 200+ cases. She also has a history of hooking up cops who harm or terrorize Blacks & Latinos. In 2017 she offered a no-jail-time felony plea to a white cop who kicked a Black man's head like a football after a bicycle traffic stop.

The new ACLU report states:

The death penalty is racially biased, and all too often, it is handed down to those with the worst lawyers. Again and again, we have seen that innocent persons were wrongly convicted and sentenced to death in California. As Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey recognizes, the death penalty does not deter crime and does not provide closure to victims. A formal commission tasked with considering the death penalty in California concluded it is a dysfunctional disaster in practice, and that it would require substantial new funding to address the problems with appellate review. This conclusion was echoed this spring by two justices of the California Supreme Court who described the death penalty in California as “an expensive and dysfunctional system that does not deliver justice or closure in a timely manner, if at all.”

Some key findings:

  • In California, 222 people currently sentenced to death are from LA county, representing 31% of all death sentences in the state. (The LA population is only 25% of the statewide figure.)

  • LA is one of only three counties in the country to have more than 10 death sentences from 2014 to 2018.

  • In the last five years, LA produced more death sentences per capita than any large county in Texas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Utah or Washington – and sent more people to death row than the states of Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia combined.

  • Last year, out of 3,100 counties nationwide, LA was one of only four to have more than one death sentence.

  • Under Lacey’s tenure, which began in 2012, zero white defendants have been sentenced to death, and her capital punishment sentences disproportionately targeted cases involving white victims. Although 12% of homicide victims in LA county are white, 36% of Lacey’s death penalty wins involved white victims.

  • Of the 22 defendants sentenced under Lacey, 13 were Latinx, eight were black and one was Asian.

“This should be profoundly troubling to all of us,” Cassy Stubbs, director of the ACLU Capital Punishment Project, told the Guardian. “Los Angeles is really in a class of its own … It is just such an enormous producer of death sentences in a way that really does not make sense for where we are today.”

Asked about the ACLU’s findings, Lacey sent a general statement to the Guardian on Monday defending her continuing support for capital punishment: “As a career prosecutor, I believe the death penalty is the appropriate punishment for some crimes – a serial killer, someone who tortures and kills a young child, the person who rapes and then kills the victim to silence his only witness or someone who kills a police officer trying to do her job safely.”

[exactly. she will continue to seek the death penalty but on behalf of whom? Los Angelenos have repeatedly and overwhelmingly rejected the death penalty at the ballot box. This is an example of so-called “representative government” prevalent in a “dumbocracy.” In the real world, so-called “representative governments” are constantly doing things their subjects do not want them to do. In reality, the DA is acting on behalf of her masters, serving the interests of elite racists. A major goal of the system of racism white supremacy is to put large numbers of non-whites into greater confinement. Besides the illusion of a representative government her “authority is a farce” to begin with. Can you delegate a right to someone that you don’t have? Where does authority, the right to rule others, come from? Individuals don’t have the right to murder anybody so how can an individual delegate or authorize a government representative to put someone to death?]

The governor’s moratorium affects the 737 inmates currently awaiting execution in California, who will not be put to death while Newsom is in office. Lacey, however, is continuing to seek the death penalty, despite the fact that a majority of voters in LA county have twice voted in favor of death penalty repeal measures.

Defense lawyers in five of the 22 cases under Lacey were suspended or disbarred, which is the most serious discipline for ethics violations, the ACLU said. Defense counsel for two other defendants was put on probation, and the attorney for another is currently facing multiple bar charges.

The ACLU, which reviewed lawyer misconduct records, cited one particularly egregious case in which an attorney declined to make an opening statement – offering no defense at all – and then repeatedly fell asleep during the trial.

“I have serious doubts about the constitutionality of these sentences,” said Stubbs, noting that inadequate representation can have long-lasting consequences.

Failures of defense counsel are key contributors to wrongful convictions, but problems with California’s appellate system means these kinds of mistakes are often exposed decades later, the ACLU said. The last two California death row inmates who were exonerated gained their freedom roughly 25 years after conviction, and those delays could get worse, as the state has an expanding backlog of cases and appeals.

All five people removed from death row after exoneration in the state were people of color.

In California, death penalty expenses total at least $139m per year, and LA county spent an estimated $48.4m seeking executions from 2000 to 2007.

Death penalty trials cost over a million dollars, draining county funds that could be used for community anti-violence programs, education and services for families of victims, said Diane Lucas, senior legal counsel with the Justice Collaborative.

The LA district attorney’s office has recently defended its continuing efforts to seek the death penalty despite Newsom’s order.

In her statement this week, Lacey noted that California voters had not abolished the death penalty, saying: “I will follow the law as prescribed by the citizens of California – whether that is seeking the death penalty for the most heinous crimes or, with the abolition of the death penalty, life without parole.”

The district attorney’s office has “extensive review processes” in place to decide whether to pursue the death penalty and makes recommendations “based on the facts without regard to the race of a defendant or a victim”, Lacey said. Her office sought the death penalty in less than 3% of all eligible cases last year, she said.

Stubbs said it was within Lacey’s power to immediately halt her death penalty cases, accept outstanding plea agreements, and no longer seek capital punishment in new cases.

But if she continued in her current path, the cases would just drag on, said Stubbs, adding: “The extended delays are painful for a lot of the community, including victims.”

"Black on Black Crime in Service of White Domination:" Black Cop who Tased 11yr Old Black Girl Gets Job Back & Cincinnati Rewards Negro Humanoid Servant w/Back Pay after Shoplifting Arrest

GOOD MONEY FOR PROTECTING & SERVING MASTER’S CORPORATE POLICE STATE & NOBODY STEALS MASTER’S CANDY W/O PAYING THE PRICE. From [HERE] The Black Cincinnati cop who tasered an 11-year-old Black girl accused of shoplifting has won his arbitration case, meaning he will receive seven days' worth of back pay following his suspension.

Cincinnati Police officer Kevin Brown filed a grievance, the results of which were released on Tuesday.

Last August, Brown used a stun gun on 11-year-old Donesha Gowdy at the Kroger grocery store in Spring Grove Village.

Brown was working at the store as an off-duty security guard. 

Brown said he had seen the girl try to leave the store through a locked entrance before heading towards the main exit, when he told her to stop and show her a receipt.

He said she ignored him, despite two more demands to stop, and left the store, which is when he fired his Taser from 10 ft away, hitting her just below the waist. 

She collapsed, suffering an abrasion to her right forearm, and had to have the Taser barbs removed from her back.

After using the Taser, Brown told Gowdy: 'You know, sweetheart, this is why there's no grocery stores in the black community.'

Donesha was suspected of shoplifting an entire backpack full of junk food, according to WLWT-TV

'It hit my back real fast and then I stopped, then I fell and I was shaking and I couldn't really breathe,' the youngster told NBC News.  

'It's just like you're passing out but you're shaking.' 

The incident was captured on body cam footage. Brown was placed on restricted duties after the incident.

His body camera captured the young girl crying as the taser barbs were removed from her back, before he made the racist comment. 

A report also found that he had also violated another three police policies; that he did not turn on his body camera until after he deployed his Taser, he did not warn her he was going to use his Taser and that his comment had constituted prejudice. 

Donesha's mom, Donna Gowdy, acknowledges her daughter should not have been stealing candy, but was horrified an officer would use such extreme force against a fleeing 11-year-old. [but it was master’s candy!]

From [HERE] It will be two years on June 21 since a white St. Louis city cop shot an off-duty black city officer in the arm – rendering him disabled and unable to return to work. Milton Green, who has served at the Metropolitan Police Department since 2005, had been trying to save the officers’ lives when he was shot.

But now his life is in shambles.

Green has still not had his pension claim heard, and he’s struggling to provide for his four children. Today, Green filed a lawsuit against the City of St. Louis and Officer Christopher Tanner, who allegedly shot Green. The community resource officer felt he had no choice but to take legal action, according to Green’s attorney.

Green is claiming that Tanner used excessive force against him and deprived him of his right to be free from unreasonable seizure.

“It is heartbreaking that this hero’s life has been destroyed,” said Javad Khazaeli, Green’s attorney of Khazaeli Wyrsch LLC. “Instead of the city taking care of him, they put him in a situation where he is going to lose his home and not be able to take care of his kids.”

According to FUNKTIONARY:

Corporate Police State - the enforcer of the commodification of life within the Spectacle Surveillance Society. Anyone who thinks that he or she is immune to the baseless destruction of his or her life (including immediate family members) by a "government" or corporation does live in a happy menagerie—enjoy your illusions. (See: GUPI & Judicial Victimization)

The 13-page lawsuit provides many details about the incident that have not yet come to light, along with Green’s fight to get his pension. The lawsuit’s account of the event is as follows.

On the evening of June 21, 2017, Green was off duty and working on a neighbor’s car in their shared driveway.

Late that evening, Green heard the sound of a loud engine on his street. A car attempted to make a right turn and crashed into another car – then stopped in front of Green’s house.

Green then heard a screeching sound and noticed a second car – a black sedan with tinted windows – at the intersection of Park Lane and Astra Avenue.

Fearing that a gang shooting was about to erupt, Green ducked behind his friend’s car and watched the driver and passengers of first car take off on foot through his gangway.

St. Louis city officers wearing bulletproof vests got out of the black sedan and pursued them, shouting, “Drop your gun!” Then, Green heard the sounds of gunfire.

Another suspect ran towards the east side of Green’s house. When the shots were fired, that suspect dropped to the ground, but he stood back up after the firing ceased. After checking himself for injuries, the suspect picked up his gun. Green’s friend yelled that suspect had a gun.

In response, the suspect turned towards Green and his friend, pointing his gun at them. Green drew his service weapon and yelled, “Police! Drop your gun!”

The man then took off running east again, through Green’s yard.

As Green moved to follow, a city officer told Green to drop his weapon and get on the ground. Green complied but the armed criminal suspect got away. Although Green explained that he was police, the officer told him to, “Shut the hell up and stay on the ground.” However, the officer walked away without handcuffing Green.

Green then saw Detective Brett Carlson handcuffing his friend. Green spoke to Carlson and showed his badge. Carlson told his fellow officers that Green was police and specifically directed them not to shoot Green.

Then, Carlson told Green to approach him. Green stood, took three steps to secure his weapon, picked it up, and started walking towards Carlson, badge in hand.

Green carried his gun in his right hand with the barrel pointed at the ground. Green was giving Carlson a description of the fleeing suspect when he saw two officers in his peripheral.

Tanner shouted, “Drop your weapon!” and simultaneously shot Green without allowing Green any time to respond.

Carlson yelled to Tanner, “I told you he was off duty. I told you not to shoot.”

“Defendant Tanner stood silent, offering no aid or apology for such an egregious transgression,” the lawsuit states. “Had Defendant Tanner exercised due care, he would have noticed that Officer Green was calmly talking to Detective Carlson, with a badge in his hand, and that Detective Carlson had the situation under control.”

Green was transported to Barnes-Jewish Hospital and underwent emergency surgery to repair his shattered arm. He received approximately six months of physical therapy, but his arm is permanently damaged, it states.

Two years later, Green is still on disability leave. Because of the financial loss directly caused by the shooting, Green is behind on bills and his home is nearing foreclosure. Because Green was out of work, his wife took extra jobs on top of having to take care of Green and their children.

Green’s wife saw him get shot, and his then-15-year-old daughter saw him lying on the ground bleeding.

‘Most egregious thing’

What’s not in the lawsuit is how the officers treated Green’s family and neighbors after he was shot, said Heather Taylor, president of the Ethical Society of Police, a police association for mainly minority officers.

“It’s one of the most egregious things ever,” Taylor said. “What you did to his children, you can never ever, ever, recover from that. They saw their father bleeding in front of their house and they ran out frantic. Then the officers cursed his children and his wife out. If you treat our own officers like this, you don’t think we aren’t treating anyone else in the community like this? The police department never interviewed Green, the lawsuit states. And the internal affairs investigator in the case, which the American learned was Steve Burle, is the father of Tanner’s partner. (Burle was also seen in a viral videoin November 2017 cussing out a person who honked at his unmarked police car, after Burle didn’t move forward at a green light.)

Hours after this incident occurred, then-interim police chief Lawrence O’Toole, who is now assistant police chief, wrongfully told the press that Green was injured during “friendly fire.”

The Ethical Society of Police said publicly that it would have been impossible for O’Toole to have had the wrong information. Now Police Chief John Hayden was standing next to O’Toole when he made the false statement. In a January 2018 interview, the American asked Hayden why he didn’t speak up when he heard O’Toole lying to the press.

Hayden responded, “I didn’t know that [O’Toole] lied until the next day. When you’re standing there, you’re not like parsing his words. I was aware that there was a black and white officer involved. I wasn't talking. He was talking.”

During that 2018 interview, Hayden said he would look into discipline for O’Toole for making the false claim, now that he was chief. To the American’s knowledge, O’Toole was never disciplined.

‘Suffering needlessly’

The lawsuit states that city officers injured in the line of duty typically have their pension claims heard and granted quickly – but Green’s has dragged on.

A pension board hearing was scheduled for February. However, the police claimed that nearly two years later, a second police report about the incident has mysteriously resurfaced.

The department refused to provide a copy of the report to Green or the board but, instead, insisted on continuing the hearing all the way to June 2019, to allow SLMPD to show the new report to the pension board, the lawsuit states.

“To this date, the pension board has not ruled on Officer Green’s claim, and he continues to suffer needlessly in limbo,” it states.

Green was a member of the St. Louis Police Officer’s Association (SLPOA), the bargaining agent for police officers. The union raised about $2,000 for Tanner but has held no fundraisers for Green, the lawsuit states.

“In contrast, the SLPOA held a large fundraiser on June [12], 2019 for disgraced ex-SLMPD officer William Olsten,” the lawsuit states. “The fundraiser, which included free beer and food, was a watch party for the final game of the Stanley Cup Championship. All proceeds went to Olsten, a white officer currently under indictment for beating and shooting a man he had argued with in a bar and lying to police about what occurred. Olsten is also a defendant in a half dozen civil rights suits alleging that he used excessive force.”

Sacramento to Pay $5.2M after White Cops Beat & Repeatedly Shocked 150 lb Unarmed Latino Man w/Tasers, Causing Severe Brain Damage. Cops Initially Claimed Tasers Had No Effect

sacramento cops taser.jpg

From [HERE] and [HERE] Sacramento will pay $5.2 million to the family of a Latino man who was repeatedly shocked by police Tasers and left with severe brain damage, according to a newspaper report Tuesday.

The City Council voted in a closed-door session to settle an excessive force lawsuit filed by the family of John Hernandez, the Sacramento Bee reported. City of Sacramento taxpayers – not the police who kill and maim – have shelled out millions of dollars in excessive force lawsuits in the past few years. [MORE]

The settlement is believed to be the largest in the city's history, the paper said.

The city and the police officers involved "dispute liability" but agreed to settle to avoid a long and possibly costly trial, Sacramento City Attorney Susana Alcala Wood.

“This never should have happened,” said civil rights attorney John Burris of the incident at a hastily-called news conference in front of the Federal Courthouse late Tuesday.

Burris said a key piece of evidence was that the officers involved – although they tased the unarmed Hernandez up to 10 times – either were not taser trained or admitted to never reading the manuals on how to use the sometimes lethal tasers.

“One officer actually is heard saying ‘let him go,’ but then they all became cowboys,” charged Burris, who said the 125-150 pound Hernandez was not only repeatedly tasered, and beaten with batons but also crushed when much larger officers – one, he said, weighed more than 300 pounds – ground Hernandez into the ground face first.

The crime to which officers responded in 2017 was minor. Hernandez reportedly was making noise and harassing people at a Rite Aid in East Sacramento. Not the crime of the century, but city of Sacramento police responded by sending three officers: Casey Dionne, Ishmael Villegas and Michael Hight.

“It was loitering at most,” explained Burris. But police not only repeatedly tasered Hernandez, but pressed their ultra-heavy bodies on top of him while he was facing down on the pavement, cutting off his air pathway and stopping him from breathing.

“No force was necessary. This is when officers should have used de-escalation. But they didn’t,” said Burris.

Burris, who said Hernandez has been living in “abject poverty” awaiting resolution of the case, now has the means to live decently because of the “constructive settlement.” His “special needs” condition is what led to the settlement, said Burris, adding “I’m really concerned that he be taken care of.”

“He’ll never be the same. But the family is happy that now it’s over,” said Burris.

Hernandez ran from arriving officers but three tackled him. During a fierce struggle, he was shocked with Tasers nine times and jabbed with a baton five or six times, the city's attorneys said in a trial brief.

The lawsuit said Hernandez stopped breathing and was "completely without oxygen to his brain" for over 10 minutes as he underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

However, the city argued that Hernandez was still breathing when paramedics arrived.

Hernandez was in a coma for days. His family said he has the mental capacity of a toddler and requires 24-hour care.

"There can be never be a winner after a horrific tragedy like this but Mr. Hernandez's settlement will ensure that he can be cared for in the years to come," said John Burris, the family's attorney.

"This really started out as a minor event," Burris said. "This is a man who may have been creating a public disturbance, but he wasn't physically assaulting anyone, he didn't have a weapon. ... But under the principles of de-escalation, (police) could have slowed this process down ... so it's an unfortunate set of circumstances that created this environment."

Public Rulers Demonstrate that “Rights are Myths:" White Baltimore Cops Attack & Kidnap [Arrest] a Black Passerby who Dared to Criticize the illegal Stop of Another Black Man. 1 Cop Charged, Fired

baltmore cops attack.jpg

From [HERE] and [HERE] Lee Dotson saw two white Baltimore officers force a Black man to sit on a rain-drenched curb and decided to speak up.

“That ground wet, man,” Dotson said on May 30, as he passed the scene and walked away, down Ashton Street in southwestern Baltimore.

Sgt. Ethan Newberg described Dotson as “combative” in initial reports. But video footage released Friday tells a radically different story.

Newberg broke into a run, grabbed Dotson by the arm and tried to take him down before another white officer tackled the passerby to the pavement and locked handcuffs around his wrists, according to footage from the officer’s body camera.

That video challenged the sequence of events Newberg described in his reports, leading to the arrest of the veteran officer in an incident among others that have plagued the department with what Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison has called a “horrible culture” of excessive force.

Harrison said on Friday that the “officer is tarnishing the badge that we all wear,” the Baltimore Sun reported.

When Baltimore police Sgt. Ethan Newberg told fellow officers to arrest the Black bystander who criticized their tactics as they detained another man, the 24-year veteran of the department said the pedestrian had been “interfering.”

Newberg said in a report that Dotson was “combative and aggressive,” Harrison said at a June 6 news conference. Documents also show the officers described Dotson as inciting a hostile crowd while squaring off with them, according to the Sun.

Commissioner Harrison removed Newberg from the force after reviewing the videos, describing Dotson as “walking calmly away after offering his opinion.”

Newberg, a 24-year veteran of the force, was charged with second-degree assault, false imprisonment and misconduct. His attorney Joseph Murtha did not return a request for comment but criticized the release of the footage before Newberg’s trial, the Sun reported.

In the footage captured on both officers’ body cameras, Dotson can be seen walking away from police while criticizing their decision to make a suspect sit on a wet sidewalk. Newberg starts to run toward Dotson, who reacts by saying “I’m not running away” and tells the sergeant to get off him.

The second officer then tackles Dotson to the ground, while the man shouts that he was exercising free speech and that the officers were violating his constitutional rights.

When more police officers arrive at the scene, Dotson is brought back to his feet and asks officers why he is being arrested.

“Just go to jail and take your charge like a man,” Newberg says in the footage.

Dotson again asks why he’s being arrested.

“Because you don’t know how to act,” Newberg says.

Police took Dotson to central booking, but prosecutors quickly dropped all charges after reviewing his case.

The footage indicates that the man who had been forced to sit on the pavement had committed no crime but had been stopped on a warrant check. He was released at the scene, police said Friday.

Harrison said Friday that the incident was an example of a “horrible culture” in the Baltimore Police Department, which has faced criticism for some officers’ behavior toward the public. The commissioner said he was cautious but interested to know how pervasive that culture may be within the department.

“That officer is tarnishing the badge that we all wear,” Harrison said of Newberg.

“He’s the person in charge of the culture, because he’s the supervisor on the scene,” the commissioner said. “He’s the person who’s supposed to be motivating, coaching, cultivating and developing young subordinates into the right way of policing.”

In another moment captured on camera, a third officer, who Harrison said was a subordinate from a different unit, approaches Newberg and tells the sergeant to relax.

“Leave my scene,” Newberg says. “Don’t you ever tell me how to do my job.”

Harrison announced the charges against Newberg on June 10, while also saying that all charges against Dotson were dropped.

The second officer involved was suspended with pay, Harrison said, and the other man involved was stopped on a warrant check and later released.

“From what I saw, the man did nothing to provoke Sergeant Newberg, whose actions were not just wrong but deeply disturbing and illegal,” Harrison said at the news conference. “This type of behavior cannot and will not be tolerated under any circumstances.”

COPS TARGETING BLACK MAN NOW IN RETALIATION. Less than 24 hours after charges were dropped against Dotson, police pulled him over and said his license plate was “positioned in an unusual manner,” speculated his window tint was too dark and smelled marijuana and searched his car. Police said they did find seven grams of crack cocaine on him and 172 individual packages of the drug, and charged him with drug possession.

Newberg’s arrest marks the first test to Harrison’s new policy for arrests captured by police body cameras, which allows him a week to decide whether to publicly release footage.

Although the department hasn’t had a formal policy for years, previous commissioners have consistently opted to release video footage after police-involved shootings or major incidents, often within days of the incident. Harrison will now seek input from federal and local prosecutors, and the Baltimore Office of Civil Rights when deciding whether to release footage publicly, he said.

Harrison described the incident as one among others that have frayed relations between police and citizens. Last week, a former Baltimore officer was convicted of assault and misconduct after he beat a man in a 2018 incident.

The FBI Has Over 640 Million Photos in its Facial Recognition Database, which means it’s close to running match searches of nearly every American

no photo available 1.jpg

From [ACLU] We already know that the FBI has a massive facial recognition apparatus. We know the agency has slowly been working towards getting access to photos of almost every American to run through this system. We also know it is building this mass surveillance infrastructure without clear authorization from Congress, safeguards, or public input.

The fact that face recognition technology, which can be readily abused, has been deployed by federal agencies largely in secret should give us all pause. The technology gives government agencies the unprecedented power to track who we are, where we go, and who we know. Companies marketing this technology to the government boast that it can be used to track people in real-time, reconstruct past movements from video footage, or identify a hundred individuals from a single photo. This threatens to create a world where people are watched and identified as they attend a protest, congregate outside a place of worship, visit a medical provider, or simply go about their daily lives.

At a House Oversight Committee hearing this week with an FBI witness, we learned new details that further confirm our fears that the FBI’s face recognition apparatus continues to balloon, threatening our fundamental liberties. The details also underscore the urgent need for Congress to put the brakes on law enforcement use of this powerful technology.

Here are some of the most concerning details we learned from the hearing:

1. The FBI’s massive facial recognition apparatus continues to expand and can now match against over 640 million photos.

The FBI now has the ability to match against or request matches against over 640 million photos — a number that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) noted is larger than the total population in the US. This includes driver’s license photos from 21 states, including states that do not have laws explicitly allowing their driver’s license repositories to be used in this way. These numbers show that the FBI is moving closer to having the capability to run face recognition searches against photos of virtually every American. 

The FBI is also running large numbers of face recognition searches. According to the FBI, from October 2017 to April 2019, the FBI ran over 152,000 searches of its face recognition system that matches against mugshots. That number does not even include searches on external databases, like passport photos. It is also unusually high when compared to the fact that there were only 10,232 criminal convictions stemming from FBI-led investigations in fiscal year 2017.

2. The FBI claims it can use face recognition on individuals without a warrant or probable cause.

The FBI says that it only performs face recognition as part of authorized investigations or open assessments. But that doesn’t make it any better. Under FBI guidelines, agents can open an assessment without any fact-based suspicion whatsoever. Even preliminary investigations may be opened only in cases where there is mere “information or allegation” of wrongdoing, which the FBI interprets to cover mere speculation that a crime may be committed in the future. Thus, even if the FBI strictly adhered to its internal policies, they would still have broad discretion to use face recognition without a warrant or probable cause, making the technology even more susceptible to widespread use and abuse.

3. The FBI doesn’t even track basic statistics to measure the technology's efficacy.

The FBI claims that face recognition can help to “protect public safety.” But, as their testimony before Congress this week revealed, the FBI doesn’t have the data to back up this claim. During questioning, the FBI confirmed that it does not track how many times face recognition has led to a conviction. Additionally, the agency does not track how many times the use of face recognition leads to arrests, including arrests of individuals ultimately acquitted. 

There is good reason to question the FBI’s efficacy claims. A report on the use of face recognition in the UK found that the technology led to false matches over 90 percent of the time. The fact that the FBI doesn’t even track basic data about efficacy calls into question how they can conclude it has positive law enforcement value.

4. The FBI cannot even confirm that it complies with its constitutional obligations.

The government is required to provide notice to criminal defendants when they are identified by face recognition or where match information may be considered exculpatory. Evidence has suggested the FBI is not complying with this obligation — and this hearing provides more cause for alarm. Twice during the hearing, the FBI was specifically asked whether they notified criminal defendants when other individuals also returned as a face recognition match, which could support defendants’ claims that they are innocent. The FBI witness said she should not confirm that this information was always provided. The FBI also failed to clearly respond to questions regarding whether they even notified defendants in cases where face recognition contributed to their arrest or prosecution. 

5. The FBI won’t reveal information about the companies it has communicated with about face recognition products.

The FBI was asked to name “the companies who lobby or communicate” with the FBI about its face recognition products. The FBI witness evaded this question, and that is troubling. We have already seen examples of companies selling and marketing irresponsible uses of face recognition to law enforcement. For example, Amazon has pushed the use of face recognition in body cameras, which are intended to be tools of accountability, not surveillance. Given this, additional oversight of private companies who sell and market this technology is critical. Congress should press the FBI to provide information on the companies it has communicated with about face recognition, and the information these companies have provided to government decision makers on the efficacy, bias, and potential uses of their face recognition products.

The ACLU has long sounded the alarm over the FBI’s use of face recognition and, along with over 60 other groups, has called for Congress to halt federal law enforcement use of this technology until Congress debates what, if any, uses should be allowed. The hearing this week provides further evidence that such a moratorium is needed to prevent harm and safeguard our rights.

Contrary to Racist Disinformation, Brennan Center says Data Collected from Police Departments & FBI show Violent Crime, Murder, & Overall Crime Declined in the 30 Largest American Cities

crime 2019.jpg

From [Brennan Center] In this final analysis of crime rates in 2018, we estimate that rates of violent crime, murder, and overall crime declined in the 30 largest American cities, with significant declines in murder. The data in this report are collected directly from local police departments. The FBI’s final 2018 data, covering the entire United States, will be released in September. 

The data reported here refine an initial Brennan Center report released in September, Crime and Murder in 2018: A Preliminary Analysis, which concluded that “increases in the murder rate in 2015 and 2016 were temporary, rather than signaling a reversal in the long-term downward trend” in crime and violence. A December update reached the same conclusion, showing rates of crime, violent crime, and homicide all declining. These continuing declines indicate that, while increases in crime in 2015 and 2016 merit further study, they did not signal the start of a new “crime wave.” 

 Updated Tables 1 and 2 support conclusions similar to the Brennan Center’s September and December reports, and now include complete data through the end of the year:

 Murder: The 2018 murder rate in the 30 largest cities is estimated to have declined by 8.0 percent since 2017. This finding indicates that the major-city murder rate will approximate 2015 levels but remain above 2014’s low point.

 Modest declines in most cities explain this decrease. The murder rate in Chicago, which increased significantly in 2015 and 2016, declined by nearly 12 percent but remains roughly 40 percent above 2014 levels. Baltimore, another city that continues to struggle with violence, also saw its murder rate decline by 9.1 percent. While Las Vegas saw its murder rate decrease significantly, by more than 40 percent, part of this decline is attributable to the mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay Resort, which led to an unusually high homicide total in 2017.

Some cities saw their murder rates rise in 2018, such as Washington, DC (35.6 percent) and Philadelphia (8.5 percent). These increases suggest a need to better understand how and why murder is increasing in some cities. New York City’s murder rate also increased, but by less than 1 percent, making it essentially the same as the 2017 rate. 

Crime: The overall crime rate in the 30 largest cities in 2018 is estimated to have declined slightly from the previous year, falling by 3.5 percent. If final FBI data track these findings, crime will have again reached a record low, driven by declining rates of property crime.

 Violent Crime: The violent crime rate is also estimated to have declined, falling by 4.0 percent from 2017.

Estimates of crime and violent crime are based on data from 25 of the nation’s 30 largest cities; estimates of murder include data from 26 cities. The Brennan Center’s previous report on crime in 2018 is available here, and a report studying crime trends from 1990 to 2016 is available here

Racist republicans and liberals always propagandize Black crime. For instance, although Washington D.C.’s murder rate rose in 2018, their murder rate had reached historic lows in 2017 with only 116 homicides. Yet this is nothing compared to what it was historically; in 1991 there were 482 murders and 443 and 454 murders respectively in 1992 and 1993. These numbers are obviously on a substantial downward decline in general. See Chart below. But you wouldn’t know that by listening to the local “dependent media” in DC such as the Washington Post who propagandize any “murder” that occurs and examine said numbers outside of historical context.

murder+chart+dc+2017 1.jpg

“Most violent crimes (by number and by percentage of population) take place by Caucasians against Caucasians.” Wash Post video promotes disinformation that violent crime is at an all time high. Mentacidal young Black kids rap about stopping rampant gun violence, despite evidence to the contrary. Racists want Blacks to believe the crime rate is high, that Black people commit most of the crime and are inherently violent. Racist suspects also want us to believe in the 'comforting illusion that police are primarily engaged in law enforcement and that crime is comes from the ghetto and is nurtured by low socio-economic status and that only persons who are arrested by cops are “criminals.” [MORE] Conversely, Black criminals function as a negative reference group vital to maintaining the White American self-image.

Dr. Amos Wilson explains, "Alleged Black criminality, while evoking White American fear and loathing, reassures them of their vaunted self-worth, their assumed innately superior moral standing, of their self-congratulatory self-constraint in contrast with presumed Black American unworthiness, innate inferior moral standing, inherent criminality, lack of self-constraint and self-control.

White America's self-appreciation is enhanced as it insatiably feeds on overblown reports about Black criminality while denying its own incomparable criminal record, and its own racist-imperialist incubation and giving birth to the very same criminal forces which now threaten to destroy it.

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]

Alleged Black criminality plays a very important role in defining the collective White American ego and personality. [MORE] Racists project criminality upon Blacks in order to treat Blacks criminally and to simultaneously empower themselves. Wilson states, such maneuvers are necessary in order to justify racist White American community's repression of African Americans and psychodynamically defend the collective White American ego complex. [MORE]

Conversely, when Black people believe such racist programming about themselves the product is a falsified consciousness. As stated by Amos Wilson, "it is not so much that the European says we are inferior, and that we are this and that, and that the European maligns our character, et cetera: It is the belief on our part that what he says is true that makes us crazy. It is a crazy reaction to what he says, an insane and unthinking kind of approach to dealing with what he says about us, that maintains the craziness. [MORE] Such a consciousness is a political necessity to maintain RSW. [MORE]  

All Criminal Charges Dropped in Flint Water Case. Prosecutors Promise [“justice" later] to Re-file Case & Continue Investigation

snyder liar.jpg

From [ABA] Prosecutors in Michigan have dropped all pending criminal charges against officials accused in connection with the leaching of lead into the water supply in Flint.

Prosecutors said they dropped the charges against eight defendants because of problems with the investigation under the previous attorney general, Bill Schuette, report the Detroit Free Press (in stories here and here), Mlive.com, the New York Times and the Washington Post.

A new expanded probe is being launched, according to a statement, which cited “grave concerns about the investigative approach and legal theories” in the cases. The charges were dropped without prejudice, meaning they can be refiled. New charges also can be added, according to the statement by the prosecutors handling the cases, Solicitor General Fadwa Hammoud and Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy.

A chief concern is that some evidence was not pursued because Schuette’s special prosecutor had wrongly allowed private law firms representing former Gov. Rick Snyder and state agencies to help decide what information would be turned over to law enforcement, the statement said.

Water officials had switched Flint’s water supply in April 2014 from Lake Huron to the Flint River to save money, but they didn’t treat the corrosive water to prevent lead from leaching into it. The charges stemmed from those decisions and the death of an elderly man from Legionnaires’ disease said to be linked to the water supply.

The new legal team has executed a series of search warrants, and it now has millions of documents and hundreds of new electronic devices, “significantly expanding the scope of our investigation,” the statement said. The lawyers have “already identified additional individuals of interest.”

“We cannot provide the citizens of Flint the investigation they rightly deserve by continuing to build on a flawed foundation,” the statement said. “Dismissing these cases allows us to move forward according to the non-negotiable requirements of a thorough, methodical and ethical investigation.”

Schuette said in a statement that the Flint water probe was “staffed and conducted with the highest level of professionalism and expertise.” His special prosecutor, Todd Flood, released a statement to the Washington Post that said his focus was always justice for the people of Flint. “I am confident our efforts on behalf of the thousands of victims met the highest professional and ethical standards,” he said.

Seven people charged in the case already had pleaded no contest to misdemeanors and had been expected to cooperate. Their pleas were not yet formally accepted by a judge.

Charges against eight other state and city officials were dropped, including an involuntary manslaughter charge against Nick Lyon, the former director of the state health department. A judge appeared ready to toss that charge “if prosecutors hadn’t beaten him to the punch by folding their case,” according to the Detroit Free Press.

Connecticut to begin collecting racial data on [white] prosecutor decisions. Such as whose cases are; papered, diverted or given quality plea offers, going to trial & what sentences are sought

Most people do not understand the awesome power of prosecutors (aka district attorneys or attorney generals) or the term "prosecutorial discretion." Media disinformation and disinfotainment about prosecutors and their role in the lex-icon is an intentional part of our conditioning in the Spectacle.

Prosecutors have the power to decide; whether to charge a person with a crime, what charges to paper, whether to seek pre-trial confinement or release and what, if any, release conditions to seek, whether to divert prosecution with community service or fine, what kind of plea offer to make, what resources to expend to prosecute, what information to disclose to the defense, what kind of sentence to seek & recommend to the court (such as confinement, probation or to defer the imposition of a sentence), whether the death penalty will be sought and whether probation should be revoked or extended. They also have a say in whether to seal arrest records or expunge criminal convictions.  Further, prosecutors set broad policies, deciding the aggressiveness with which different laws will be enforced, and other law enforcement officials often follow their lead.

Said decisions are overwhelmingly made by white people about non-white people because the vast majority of prosecutors are white and criminal defendants are disproportionately non-white.  Specifically, according to a recent study, 95 percent of the 2,437 elected state and local prosecutors across the country are white, and 79 percent are white men (by comparison, white men make up 31 percent of the population of the United States). Also most States have no Black prosecutors. [MORE]. On the federal level 87% of all US Attorneys are white - as 8% of assistant U.S. Attorneys are African American and 5% are Latino. [MORE] and [MORE]. In a system of injustice prosecutors face only token punishment for wrongful convictions & concealing exculpatory evidence. [MORE]


From [HERE] Connecticut is expected to become the first state to collect statewide criminal case data from prosecutors broken down by the defendants’ race, sex, ethnicity, age and ZIP code.

In votes in late May and early June, Connecticut legislators unanimously approved the transparency bill known as SB 880, report the Associated Press and the Connecticut Mirror. Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont had backed the bill and was expected to sign it.

The bill requires the state to collect statistics on arrests, diversionary programs, case dispositions, plea agreements, cases going to trial, court fines and fees, and restitution orders.

Lamont said the bill will provide the public with greater insight into prosecutors’ decisions. “This data will provide insight into the front end of the system, which has historically been a ‘black box’ and will help ensure that justice is attained in the fairest ways possible,” he said in a press release after Senate passage of the bill.

State Rep. Steven Stafstrom of Bridgeport, who co-chairs the House Judiciary Committee, said the bill will allow for analysis in variations of delivery of justice. “It tends to be courthouse by courthouse—or sometimes prosecutor by prosecutor,” he told the Connecticut Mirror.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut supported the bill. In an op-ed in the Connecticut Mirror, the group’s executive director and its Smart Justice field organizer said prosecutors wield tremendous power and their decisions deserve scrutiny.

They pointed out that, nationwide, 95% of criminal cases end in plea bargains. That means that most of the time, prosecutors decide how a case is resolved, they wrote.

The Associated Press also pointed to information from the Bureau of Justice Statistics showing racial disparities in imprisonment nationwide. The imprisonment rate for sentenced black men in 2017 was more than twice the rate of sentenced Latino men and nearly six times the rate of sentenced white men.

The AP also cited a study of plea bargains in Wisconsin that found that white defendants were 25% more likely than black defendants to have their charges dropped or reduced to lesser crimes.

Attorneys for Black Man on Death Row say White NC Prosecutors Used a Racist Training Manual to Make their Pre-textual Removal of all Black Jurors Appear to be Race Neutral

Russell William Tucker.jpg

From [HERE] A North Carolina death-row prisoner is seeking a new trial based on allegations that prosecutors in his case used a training document steeped in racist stereotypes to manufacture pretextual reasons to exclude African Americans from serving on his jury. In a June 4, 2019 court filing in the appeal of Russell William Tucker (pictured), two national experts say that the Forsyth County prosecutors unconstitutionally exercised their discretionary juror challenges on the basis of race to strike all five black jurors from his case. Bryan Stevenson, executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, says that the prosecution’s use of pre-prepared reasons contained in the training document shows that the “race neutral” justifications the prosecution offered for their strikes were pretextual. Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, an historian and the director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, says that the reasons extracted from the training handout are outgrowths of false white supremacist myths about African Americans and “themselves evince racial bias.”

Tucker was sentenced to death in February 1996 for the 1994 murder of a K-Mart security guard. In selecting the jury in his case, prosecutors David Spence and Robert Lang relied on a document, “Batson Justifications: Articulating Juror Negatives,” distributed in a prosecutorial training session to offer facially race-neutral justifications if the prosecutor’s use of discretionary jury strikes were challenged. Both prosecutors and defense lawyers may peremptorily challenge a limited number of jurors to remove them from the jury pool and they do not have to give a reason for doing so. However, those strikes may not be used to remove jurors because of their race, and in 1986, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Batson v. Kentucky that if the defense challenges a strike, the prosecutor must provide a race-neutral explanation for doing so. Tucker’s petition alleges that prosecutors used language directly from the training document to justify their strikes, citing jurors’ “monosyllabic” replies, “body language,” or their opinion that the juror had “no stake in the community.”

In an affidavit supporting Tucker’s petition, Stevenson called “[t]he North Carolina Batson Justifications handout … another example of the common prosecutorial response to Batson: prosecutors came up with ways to conceal racial bias, and avoid findings of Batson violations, by developing ‘reasons’ that would likely be deemed race-neutral, and therefore, acceptable to reviewing courts.” Stevenson said that, despite appearing race-neutral, “many of the listed reasons are based on longstanding racist stereotypes that have been used to deny rights to Blacks for centuries.” Kendi—whose National Book Award-winning book Stamped from the Beginning traces the roots of anti-black racist ideas from colonial times to the modern era—described many of the reasons contained in the training handout as a modern application of the same types of language used to justify Jim Crow policies, segregation, and voter suppression. “[M]any of the reasons listed on the Batson Justifications handout and offered to the court as ‘race neutral’ reasons to remove Blacks from Mr. Tucker’s jury were not race neutral at all,” he wrote in an affidavit. “Instead, many of the listed reasons are based on longstanding racist stereotypes that have been used to deny rights to Blacks for centuries.”

Racial discrimination in jury selection remains a widespread problem in death-penalty cases, despite the Supreme Court’s ruling in Batson. A Michigan State University study of North Carolina prosecutorial jury strikes or acceptances of more than 7,400 jurors from 173 capital cases tried over a twenty-year period showed that prosecutors across the state consistently struck African-American jurors at approximately twice the rate of other jurors. Yet a 2016 study of Batson challenges in North Carolina found that, “[i]n the 114 cases decided on the merits by North Carolina appellate courts, the courts have never found a substantive Batson violation where a prosecutor has articulated a reason for the peremptory challenge of a minority juror.” A 2015 New Yorker article on the discriminatory tactics used by prosecutors highlighted the same training document that is being challenged in Tucker’s appeal. The issue has reached the U.S. Supreme Court several times in recent years. In May 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court granted a new trial to death-row prisoner Timothy Foster after finding that Georgia prosecutors had invented pretextual reasons for striking every black juror from his case. On March 20, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument in Flowers v. Mississippi, an appeal from a Mississippi prisoner who had been tried six times. Over the course of his six trials, prosecutors removed all but one black juror. The Court has not yet issued a decision in that case.

Racist Suspect Phoenix Mayor Apologizes [tricks] after Race Soldiers Niggerize Black Family; Put Guns on Black Man, Pregnant Black Woman, 2 Small Kids & Threaten to Kill Them Over a “Stolen" Doll

WHITE COPS WERE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR A BLACK 4 YR OLD WITH A DOLL IN A SYSTEM OF RACISM WHITE SUPREMACY. From [NPR] The racist suspect mayor of Phoenix is apologizing to the city following recently released video showing police officers pointing their guns and threatening to shoot a 22-year-old father who was with his pregnant fiancée and two young daughters. Police say they were investigating allegations that one of the children had shoplifted a doll from a Family Dollar store.

Viral footage of the incident captured by bystanders has already prompted an internal police probe, a $10 million civil rights claim and a chorus of fury on social media. Now, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego says the police officers' actions were "completely inappropriate and clearly unprofessional," calling the recordings "beyond upsetting."

"I am deeply sorry for what this family went through, and I apologize to our community," Gallego said on Twitter Saturday evening. "This is not who we are, and I refuse to allow this type of behavior to go unchallenged."

The episode happened last month when Dravon Ames, 22, and his fiancée, Iesha Harper, 24, along with their two young daughters, London Drake, 1, and Island Drake, 4, visited a Family Dollar store. Unbeknownst to the parents, one of their daughters swiped a doll from the store without paying for it. [lol. white journalists at NPR . . . can a 4 yr old form the criminal intent to commit a theft offense?]

Police say they were tipped off about the alleged shoplifting by a store employee just as the family's car was leaving the parking lot, and police followed the car. Police eventually cornered the vehicle in the apartment complex of the family's babysitter.

A heated standoff ensued.

Cell phone videos taken by witnesses show officers shouting profanities at the family as officers order that they put their hands up. If they did not comply, an officer can be heard saying, "you're gonna f***ing get shot. Get your f***ing hands up!"

Police wrote in an incident report that they feared the mother was "hiding something" or was reaching for a gun. (No weapons were recovered from the family.)

In the parents' civil rights claim, they say when Harper exited the vehicle, officers injured her 1-year-old daughter by pulling on one of her arms when Harper would not follow an officer's order to hand over her baby.

The filing from the family alleges that Ames was thrown against a vehicle and kicked so hard that he collapsed before a police officer "kept his knee between the father's legs. He punched the father very hard in the back for no reason," the parents' lawyer, Thomas Horne, wrote in the claim.

Harper passed off her baby to a bystander before police handcuffed her and her fiancé and they were placed in a police patrol car.

"I could have shot you in front of your f***ing kids," an officer said to her, according to the family's claim.

Horne alleges that the incident violated the family's civil rights by committing battery, unlawfully imprisoning them and causing the parents and their kids emotional distress. The claim is seeking $10 million in damages.

Since the incident happened, the family's 4-year-old has been experiencing nightmares and wetting the bed out of distress, according to the filing.

RACIST SUSPECTS ARE ALWAYS APOLOGIZING ABOUT THEIR GENOCIDAL CONDUCT . FUNKTIONARY explains, to “apologize” is to “lay the foundation for a future offense.” An “apology” is “a plea bargain in disguise.” Explanation is a trick to avoid conflict. Apology is a trick - applied as anger solvent - you need not be authentic in your apology as it is merely a social device (gesture) to detonate anger. Apologies, like excuses, are not for the benefit of the one to whom they are made, but the one who makes them.”

(See SNigger & McNegro)

Phoenix Police Department Chief Jeri Williams told the public that an internal investigation is being conducted over the incident.

"I, like you, am disturbed by the language and the actions of our officer," Williams said in a video that the police department posted to Facebook. "I assure you that this incident is not representative of the majority of Phoenix police officers who serve this city."

The doll was returned to Family Dollar, officials said. And though nobody faced charges stemming from the alleged shoplifting, authorities issued Ames a traffic ticket for driving on a suspended license and impounded his car.

His lawyer says he is limping from having been roughed up by the police and he now has no way to drive to his job as a warehouse worker.

Gallego, the Phoenix mayor, said that in response to the incident, the city will be speeding up its implementation of police body-worn cameras across the entire police department. She has also scheduled a public meeting with the police chief for the community to air its thoughts about the troubling footage of the police interaction.

"We owe it to our residents," she said, "to give them an open forum to discuss their concerns with us and to propose solutions."

TX Bar Complaint says Unaccountable Racist Suspect DA Intentionally Withheld Exculpatory Evidence that Caused the Wrongful Conviction of a Black Man for Murder of a White Cop, was on Death Row 12 yrs

Photo from 2005 shows then-Harris County Prosecutor Dan Rizzo, a a racist suspect, demonstrating how Houston police officer Charles Clark was fatally shot during the robbery of a southeast side check-cashing store in 2003. Alfred Dewayne Brown was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death in October 2005.

Photo from 2005 shows then-Harris County Prosecutor Dan Rizzo, a a racist suspect, demonstrating how Houston police officer Charles Clark was fatally shot during the robbery of a southeast side check-cashing store in 2003. Alfred Dewayne Brown was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death in October 2005.

When an Innocent Person is Sentenced to Death Who is the Criminal? From [DPIC] A special prosecutor in Harris County, Texas, has filed a complaint with the Texas State Bar Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel against former Assistant District Attorney Daniel Rizzo, alleging that Rizzo intentionally concealed exculpatory evidence crucial to the exoneration of former death-row prisoner Alfred Dewayne Brown (pictured). Brown was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death in 2005 for a robbery murder in which a store clerk and responding police officer were shot to death. Brown claimed that phone records would show he was at his girlfriend’s apartment at the time of the murder. Rizzo withheld the records from the defense, then abused grand jury proceedings to jail Brown’s girlfriend until she agreed to implicate Brown. Brown was exonerated in 2015 after the phone records came to light. An investigation by Special Prosecutor John Raley later led to an official declaration that Brown is “actually innocent.”

Rizzo is white.

In early June 2019, Raley filed what the Houston Chronicle described as a “scathing grievance” with the Texas state bar alleging that “Rizzo was aware of exculpatory evidence and chose not to produce it to the defense and the court.“ He accused Rizzo of engaging in “significant misconduct” by “withhold[ing] from the court and defense counsel evidence likely to acquit Brown and then press[ing] forward in seeking the death penalty.” Raley said “Mr. Rizzo’s misconduct in the Brown case raises substantial questions regarding his honesty, trustworthiness, and fitness to be a lawyer. ... Mr. Brown, an innocent man, spent nearly 12 years on death row because of the misconduct of Daniel Rizzo.”

As Special Prosecutor, Raley issued a report — commissioned by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office —advocating for Brown’s exoneration. The report, issued in March 2019 after more than 1,000 hours of investigation into Brown’s case, found “[b]y clear and convincing evidence, [that] no reasonable juror would fail to have a reasonable doubt about whether Brown is guilty of murder. Therefore his case meets the legal definition of ‘actual innocence.’” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg and Harris County District Court Judge George Powell subsequently made official declarations of Brown’s “actual innocence,” paving the way for Brown to receive state compensation for the years in which he was wrongfully imprisoned. Raley’s report documented that Rizzo concealed “crucial evidence” of phone records that supported Brown’s alibi that he had been at his girlfriend’s apartment at the time of his alleged crime. A copy of the records were discovered by police officer Breck McDaniel in his garage during Brown’s appeals.

In 2003, in preparation for Brown’s trial, Officer McDaniel obtained the phone records for Brown’s girlfriend’s apartment in an effort to disprove Brown’s alibi. Instead, the records showed that Brown had, as he claimed, called his girlfriend at work at a time that made it impossible for him to have been involved in the murder of Houston Police Officer Charles Clark. McDaniel sent an email to Rizzo informing him of the phone records. When that email was uncovered in 2018, District Attorney Kim Ogg filed a Bar complaint against Rizzo. Rizzo claimed he never read the email and had not been aware of the records. Raley’s complaint rejected Rizzo’s version of events, explaining that, while Rizzo had not replied to the email, he made a change to a subpoena that McDaniel had requested, demonstrating that he in fact read the email.

Rizzo has denied concealing the evidence. His lawyer, Chris Tritico, wrote, “There is more credible evidence that supports that Breck McDaniel suppressed what he clearly thought was exculpatory evidence, but did not understand was inculpatory evidence, after all it was in HIS GARAGE. If the District Attorney wants to set a cop killer free they can do so without laying it on the back of a 27-year public servant.” “For Rizzo to call Brown a ‘cop killer’ at this stage reveals both his desperation and his bias,” Raley replied. “Rizzo was fully aware of the existence of the exculpatory evidence, decided not to produce it, and pretended that it did not exist.”

In the complaint, Raley wrote that he “cannot imagine anything in the practice of law more horrible than executing an innocent man.” “Rizzo’s unethical and illegal actions resulted in an innocent man being sent to death row,” he said. “Fortunately, an extra copy of the records was found and produced before Brown was executed. If our justice system is to work properly, the State Bar of Texas must hold prosecutors who hide evidence of innocence accountable for their conduct.”

Will Prosecutors Empanel Another Nearly All White Jury (11) to Prevent Justice in Retrial of White Buffalo Cop’s Case? Race Soldier Knocked Black Man Down & Struck Him w/Baton in Unprovoked Attack

WHEN THEY SEE THIS’ their minds will be filled with smoke and block them from physically seeing things as they are. Many racist cops are sophisticated, masterful liars who are taught how to testify and create persuasive, detailed police reports. Mixing actual facts with nonsense sounds & looks real in court. White prosecutors, jurors, judges and the white media are also eager and programmed to believe anything foul cops say about Blacks. In an excessive force case like this one, the evidence will come down to a credibility contest between a sworn white police officer and a Black man with a criminal record. Prediction: in this case, another white jury will believe the Black man was trying to grab the white cop’s metal baton to take it way from him and use it against him - although [for those who have eyest to see] video evidence shows that after an aggressive unprovoked attack by the white cop, the Black man is laying on the ground with his hands up, surrendering and trying to block the white cop’s painful baton strikes to his body. How could a white juror come to such a stupid conclusion? Because the white cop said so and he knows they will believe it.

corey krug buffalo police.jpg

From [HERE] When [white] federal prosecutors took their case against Corey Krug to a jury, the white Buffalo police officer walked away acquitted of three of the four charges against him. But the jury deadlocked on the last count.

Said jury was nearly all white with 11 white jurors and one Black juror - something the white media ignored in this case. [what is collective white power?}

The jury in Krug's case deliberated eight days and, in the end, could not agree on whether he violated Ford's civil rights that night.

Only the jurors know for sure why they deadlocked but the panel's makeup – only one of the jurors was black – prompted speculation among lawyers and court officials familiar with the case. The same jury cleared Krug of two other charges related to African-Americans.

Later this week, the government, intent on retrying the 18-year police veteran, will again try to prove that remaining allegation: that Krug used excessive force against a Black man more than four years ago.

Jury selection in the trial before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara begins Tuesday.

"Earlier this year, Officer Corey Krug stood before this court and a jury of his peers and was acquitted of allegations that he used excessive force," defense lawyer Terrence M. Connors said in court papers last week. "The government seeks to force Officer Krug to relitigate those charges, along with other baseless allegations."

The split verdict in the initial prosecution followed a trial in which the government portrayed Krug as a "bully with a badge," and the defense countered by arguing that his use of force was always justified and reasonable.

Caught on video by a WKBW-TV photographer, Krug can be seen using his nightstick to push Devin Ford onto a car and then the ground and then hitting him in the leg. Krug claims Ford tried to grab his nightstick. In the video the white cop aggressively approaches the Black man, he gives him no orders but immediately grabs him and then throws him onto a car. He then stands over him and hits repeatedly with his metal baton. The Black man can be heard yelling what did I do? and has his hands out to surrender and attempt to block the blows while he lays on his back in the street.

The white cop had come to aid a white man who was having an argument with the Black man on the street.

"When the defendant reached Mr. Ford, holding his nightstick horizontally in both hands, the defendant slammed Mr. Ford against the hood of a car and drove him off the car and onto the ground," Assistant U.S. Attorneys John D. Fabian and Aaron J. Mango said in court papers. "As the defendant crashed into Mr. Ford and slammed him onto the ground, Mr. Ford said, 'I didn't do nothing.' "

Shot by a WKBW-TV photographer, the video led to an FBI investigation and a civil rights prosecution charging Krug in two other incidents, as well. The jury acquitted Krug on all three charges tied to those other incidents.

The verdict means Ford, who testified at the first trial, will again take the stand to talk about his encounter with Buffalo police on Chippewa Street during one of the busiest party nights of the year.

"I just remember being on my back, saying 'I didn't do anything, I didn't do anything,' " Ford testified at the first trial.

Krug countered by attacking his accuser's credibility and suggesting in court papers that Ford has an anti-police bias and a history of criminal behavior.

"The government rests its case on a parade of wayward witnesses who, simply put, lack the capacity to tell the truth," Connors said at the time.

A few days after the first verdict, Ford, who is suing the city over his encounter with Krug, was arrested in Lackawanna on a minor marijuana possession charge.

Krug, who is charged with deprivation of rights under color of law and is currently on suspension, could lose his job on the force and go to prison if convicted.

In their relations w/Black people, Racists function as Psychopaths: Video Shows Psychopathic White Cuyahoga County Jail Cops Turn Off Body Cam & Repeatedly Punch Restrained Black Man in the Face

In general, white people treat each other humanely. But in their relations with non-white people, whites function as psychopaths. Dr. Bobby Wright has explained, 'the psychopath is an individual who is constantly in conflict with other persons or groups. He is unable to experience guilt, is completely selfish and callous, and has a total disregard for the rights of others. Psychopaths simply ignore the concept of right and wrong. By ignoring this trait in the White race (the lack of ethical and moral development) Blacks have made and are still making a tragic mistake in basing the worldwide Black liberation movement on moral suasion. It is pathological for Blacks to keep attempting to use moral suasion on a people who have no morality where race is the variable.' [MORE]

Cuyahoga County Jail.jpg

The Psychopathic Racial Personality. From [HERE] and [HERE] White Guards strapped Terrance Debose to a chair in a small cell tucked away in the Cuyahoga County Jail where no one else could see him.

Corrections Cpl. Nicholas Evans stood next to the chair. He flipped his body camera off and pummeled the face of the 47-year-old inmate who suffers from an undiagnosed mental illness. Debose could not move his arms to defend himself from the onslaught.

The release of a new video shows clear inhumane treatment towards inmates by guards in Cleveland’s jail.

Cuyahoga County corrections officers Nicholas Evans and Timothy Dugan are both seen repeatedly punching the inmate, Terrance Debose, during the March 2018 incident.

Debose was removed from his jail cell and taken into isolation via wheelchair for unknown reasons.

In the latest video Debose, 47, is seen being wheeled into an isolated room in March by a white guar. Debose’s arms and legs were strapped to a chair, and his face was covered by what looked to be a spit guard.

The guard, who has since been identified as Cpl. Nicholas Evans, appeared to be talking with Debose while walking around the room. The arm of a second guard, Timothy Dugan, appeared from the door as he seemed to be talking with Debose, as well. Evans then turned off his body camera and then immediately strikes Debose on the face several times as he sat defenseless in the wheelchair. Dugan enters the frame and also hits Debose, who was struck so severely that he suffered a concussion, the outlet reported.

A health care technician later enters the isolation cell, but it is unclear if they are aware of the incident, WKYC 3 noted. Evans and Dugan continued to stand in front of Debose when they both hit him one more time. According to Cleveland.com, the guards left Debose sitting there bleeding for two hours.

Evans punches Debose six times and Dugan twice. Evans faces a felonious assault charge that carries a potential eight-year prison sentence if he’s convicted. Dugan is charged with misdemeanor assault, and both are charged with violating Debose’s civil rights. They pleaded not guilty at their arraignments in early April.

The two officers are on unpaid administrative leave while the case is pending.

Debose was initially jailed on cocaine possession and charges of tampering with evidence. His initial bond was $2,500, and he has since been indicted on charges of aggravated burglary, felonious assault and theft. $50,000.

His brother, Emanuel Debose, said in an interview that his brother has always suffered from mental illness, but is unsure of his exact diagnosis. His cases are on the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court’s mental health docket, which is designed to help mentally ill offenders get the help they need instead of languishing in jails and prisons.

“He said they beat him up bad,” Emanuel Debose said. “He said he wasn’t really able to talk because they’re recording the calls from the jail. He asked if I could get him some help, but I really didn’t know how to go about doing that type of stuff.”

The corrections officers who beat his brother are among the eight charged various incidents that are part of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office ongoing probe of civil-rights violations in the jail. Also charged are former warden Eric Ivey and former jail director Ken Mills.

Video released on Tuesday showed an inmate collapse from an overdose at the jail  and be ignored for more than two hours before dying at a hospital, WKYC reported. 

Two now-indicted corrections officers were seen in video released last month punching a woman, who also tied up in a restraint chair, and using pepper foam spray directly in her eyes. 

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office has an ongoing probe of civil-rights violations at the jail and has also charged former warden Eric Ivey and former jail director Ken Mills.

Republican Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced on Thursday that he would be making changes throughout the whole state because of the “crisis” at the Cuyahoga County Jail. One of those changes involves having the jail inspected every 30 days. Cleveland.com reported that as of Monday, an inspection of the Cuyahoga County Jail was still not compliant with 66 minimum standards. [MORE]

ICE is Routinely Violating the Human Rights of Non-White Migrants in Its Custody: DHS Watchdog finds Rotten Food, Nooses at Multiple Family Destruction Centers

ICE inhumane.jpg

From [ThinkProgress] The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a report Thursday detailing the horrific conditions at immigration detention centers across the United States. Inspectors found “immediate risks or egregious violations of detention standards” including nooses in detainee cells, overuse of solitary confinement, and spoiled food, among other issues.

DHS OIG inspected four Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities, including the Adelanto ICE Processing Center in California, the Aurora ICE Processing Center in Colorado, the LaSalle ICE Processing Center in Louisiana, and the Essex County Correctional Facility in New Jersey.

According to the report, the “inspections of the four detention facilities revealed violations of ICE’s detention standards and raised concerns about the environment in which detainees are held.”

OIG described the food service issues at Adelanto and Essex as “egregious.” At Adelanto, “lunch meat and cheese were mixed and stored uncovered in

large walk-in refrigerators,” while chicken “smelled foul and appeared to be spoiled.” Food in the freezer was also expired. At Essex, “open packages of raw chicken leaked blood all over refrigeration units” and “lunch meat was slimy, foulsmelling and appeared to be spoiled.”

All of the facilities demonstrated “serious issues with the administrative and disciplinary segregation of detainees” that violate ICE detention standards and infringe on detainee rights, the report read.

The findings confirm what most immigration activist groups and some progressive members of Congress have been clamoring about for months: ICE is routinely violating the human rights of the individuals in its custody. [MORE]
