Criminals Aren’t to Blame

Wirecutter posted a link to a story about Clemmie Greenlee’s campaign to punish gunowners whose guns are stolen by criminals. For those who don’t know, Clemmie Greenlee is the founder and CEO of Nashville Peacemakers, an antigun advocacy group. She founded it after her son was murdered in “gang violence” in 2003.

She and her organization don’t want prison or death penalties for those who commit murder using guns, however. What she wants is to have guns made illegal and for the government to put more money into neighborhoods where murders and other crimes are being committed. In other words, black neighborhoods. To make that happen, she wants victims of criminals to be punished for daring to become victims. In other words, she wants white people to be put in prison because they were the victims of crimes committed by black people.

How about some background?

Her son, who she likes to make sound like an innocent victim? He had more than 2 dozen arrests between his 18th birthday and his death 11 years later. Those resulted in more than one felony conviction. Things like dealing drugs, stealing cars, and criminal trespass (likely burglary). So he was a confirmed criminal and likely a gang member.

According to police, Rodriguez had walked down the street wearing a blue scarf in a red-scarf area. He was wearing the wrong gang colors and was murdered for it.

At 29 years old, a criminal, and a drug dealer, he knew what areas were controlled by which gangs. He was almost certainly a gang member.

She herself was a prostitute for over 30 years who “snapped” and stabbed a man 5 times and was sentenced to prison for it. In other words, a criminal. Sure, she claims that she wasn’t a criminal, but a victim. She was using weed and LSD before she became a prostitute. Yet this is the same democrat party that is currently grooming kids for more of the same.

It’s not their fault. Nope.

They Hate You

The left hates you and wants you dead. They think mass killings are funny, a game. The lawyers defending the Parkland shooter flipped off the families of their client’s mass shooting and then laughed about it with their confessed, mass murdering client.

The families of those victims were pissed and responded by pointing out how the defense counselors would feel if their own children were killed. The defense tried to get the judge to issue a warning to them. The judge told them to sit down. So now the defense wants the judge to be impeached.

Flip me off during the trial of my child’s murderer while you are defending him and see what happens to you. Remember that police and trials exist so lynchings don’t.

Coming Soon

To your local adult movie store. Starring Paul Pelosi, the film is called Straight outta SanFran. It’s about a man who is having a gay love affair with a homeless man while his rich and powerful wife is out of town plotting to take over the world. Numerous gay love scenes, there is no real plot. I mean, who is going to believe that a man armed with a hammer is on a suicide mission? How would you even commit suicide with a hammer? Everyone is ugly. Produced by Capitol Hill Police Films. Shot on location in San Francisco.

Seriously, is there anyone in the senior ranks of our government who isn’t a either a sexual degenerate or a criminal?

Teacher Arrested with Gun in Car

A Levy county teacher was arrested for having a gun in her car on school property. I think that the cops may have screwed up on the charges. She has been charged with a violation of 790.115 2b, possession of a weapon on school property, and two counts of 827.03 2d, willfully or through neglect endangering a child. The first charge might not fly. Granted I am not a lawyer, but the law reads:

A person shall not possess any firearm, electric weapon or device, destructive device, or other weapon as defined in s. 790.001(13), including a razor blade or box cutter, except as authorized in support of school-sanctioned activities, at a school-sponsored event or on the property of any school, school bus, or school bus stop; however, a person may carry a firearm:
<snip irrelevant parts>
3. In a vehicle pursuant to s. 790.25(5); except that school districts may adopt written and published policies that waive the exception in this subparagraph for purposes of student and campus parking privileges.

The question here is whether or not the school board has published a policy that states that no one may park on campus with a firearm in their vehicles. Most school districts in Florida don’t publish rules like that. A sharp lawyer might be able to beat this.

The child endangerment charges though, those are likely to stick. I mean, she gave two 4th grade children the keys to her car, knowing that there was a loaded handgun in it. She deserves to go down for that.

I would certainly suggest a plea deal.

Say What?

The vice principal of a Cleveland high school let three ski mask wearing, armed gunmen into the locked school with students inside, because he saw that police were chasing them and was afraid the police would shoot them.

A school security officer called 911 while watching teens with masks and guns. They had pulled up in three stolen cars and walked up to the school. The school went into lockdown. The police pursued the three, and one of them was able to escape.

The vice principal made a statement to police: “I confirmed the interior doors were locked and instructed the four suspects to come to the vestibule because it was unsafe to be outside because I saw police officers.”

The school district defended them by saying that the principal made sure that the doors to classrooms were locked, so the gunmen were not able to threaten students. Here is the official statement from the school district:

As one of the witness statements indicates, the males entered a controlled, secured area that is specifically designed to prevent access to the rest of the building. Cleveland police had already arrived on the scene and were able to make arrests. The staff member made a split-second decision that the individual thought was the best way to keep students and staff safe.

At the very least, the two vice principals are guilty of aiding a fugitive, or perhaps accessory after the fact. After all, he made an official statement that his purpose was in helping three masked gunmen avoid the police.

The police union had the best quote:

administrators at Garrett Morgan HS allowed MASKED GUNMEN to enter the school in order to protect the gunmen from wait for it police officers outside. They risked the lives of CHILDREN to show how woke they are. Can’t make it up.

Parents need to be down there at the next school board meeting and demanding some answers.

Bad Apple, again

A rookie cop is answering a disturbance call at a local McDonald’s. In the parking lot, he sees a car unrelated to the call that looks like one that had fled from him the day before for having the wrong plates attached to the car. Having never seen My Cousin Vinny and realizing that you can mistake a metallic mint green 64 Skylark with a 63 Tempest, he decided that running the tag to confirm it was the same car was silly, and figured that he would just walk over to this car and demand that the driver step out of the car.

Since there was obviously no reasonable suspicion that the driver had committed a crime, much less probably committed a crime, what came next was an entirely illegal stop. Let’s see what happened next:

So he dumped 10 shots into a car with a 17 year old in the driver’s seat. Now there are many who will jump in and say that the kid should have complied. Here is the issue- the entire stop was illegal to begin with. It doesn’t matter what the kid did or didn’t do.

Multiple bullets struck the teen, who stopped his car just down the road. He was transported to the hospital and is now on life support. He is not expected to live. Get this- the cops arrested the kid for evading detention with a vehicle and assault on a peace officer. The local prosecutor, realizing that this was a shitty case, refused to prosecute.

The San Antonio cops fired this cop immediately, which they can do because he is still in his probationary period. My guess is that this kid’s family has got a very large paycheck coming. I’m sure that they would rather have their child back.

Perhaps if this kid had been armed with an AR-15, the cops would have stood around for an hour and a half before deciding what to do. This was a cop who was pissed that a ‘bad guy’ got away, and was looking for a little cop revenge. Instead, the cop lost his job and has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault by a police official. When this kid dies, and he probably will, the cop will be facing a murder charge.

Here is Donut’s take on the shooting:

Show Your Work

A few days ago, I promised that I would post more about crime and race to support my contention that blacks are largely unsuited to following the law in a civilized society.

As I said yesterday, science is about following the evidence, wherever it leads. Sometimes the place that the evidence takes us to is inconvenient or flies in the face of our beliefs. The three most reliable evidence of race and crime to my knowledge are the National Crime Victimization Survey, the U.S. Justice Department Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that are based on that survey, and somewhat less reliably, the FBI’s Universal Crime Report (UCR). The NCVS surveys a large group of people about their experiences with crime victimization, so it is not based on what is reported to the police and what the police do with it. The Uniform Crime Reports is based on data from police departments, and is thus generally a less reliable measure of actual crime.

Let’s take a look at these sources and see where that evidence leads us:

We will begin by taking a look at the data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ Race and Ethnicity of Violent Crime Offenders and Arrestees, 2018, with regard to rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault, crimes that are referred to as “Nonfatal Violent Crime.”

When you look at this, you would think that Whites account for more violent crime than other races, until you account for the fact that whites are 60% of the US population, and blacks are only 13% of the population. I have posted numerous times about the statistical likelihood of blacks committing murder and homicide. In fact, the evidence is overwhelming and pervasive to the point that I could not find a single reputable source making a claim otherwise.

This poses the question if people of color live in more violent communities or if the local brand of justice is inherently selective. Experts have long been debating this matter.    

  • Around 2.5% of the US black male population was in prison by the end of 2016. 
  • 2,417 per 100,000 US black male residents were incarcerated by the end of 2016. 
  • There were 467,000 sentenced black male prisoners and 20,400 black female prisoners in the US in 2016. These figures exclude blacks with Hispanic origins and those with sentences that are one year or less. 
  • In 2015, 59% of black prisoners sentenced to more than a year in prison were detained for a violent crime.  
  • 18-19-year-old black males are 11.8 times more likely to be incarcerated than white males belonging to the same age group. 
  • Black males 65 years and above are 4.4 times more likely to be incarcerated than white males belonging to the same age group. 
  • In 2016, 34% of black inmates were doing time for public order offenses. 
  • While blacks and Hispanics comprise about 32% of the US population, they accounted for 56% of the US prison population in 2015. 
  • Blacks are five times more likely to be incarcerated than whites. 
  • If blacks and Hispanics share the same incarceration rate of whites, the prison population will decrease by 40%. 
  • As of 2001, one in three black males born in the said year would likely face a prison sentence in his lifetime. 
  • As of 2016, 48.3% of prisoners serving life and virtual life sentences are black. 

Even the left acknowledges that blacks are arrested and convicted of crimes at far higher rates than are whites. They attribute this to a criminal justice system that is racially prejudicial by claiming that whites and blacks commit crimes at the same rate, but blacks are being arrested and convicted at much higher rates than are whites. I reject that for one simple reason: That isn’t what the evidence shows.

In order for this claim to be true, cities that have higher white populations and are otherwise of similar in population density would have similar crime rates to those with higher black populations. That isn’t the case. In fact, the 6 largest cities in the US with the highest murders per capita so far in 2022 are New Orleans, Baltimore, Birmingham, St. Louis, Milwaukee, and Cleveland. All cities with a high percentage of their population being black.

This is why 28% of the residents of the USA are responsible for 53% of the homicides, with the 10 largest cities in the US having 20% of the homicides. Those ten cities are: New York with 333 killings, Chicago 415, Detroit 332, Philadelphia 246, Los Angeles 578, New Orleans 150, Baltimore 234, St Louis 159, Washington DC 104, and Indianapolis 135 means that of the approximately 14,000 murders in the US in 2014, nearly 2700 of them- about 20%- occur in just those ten cities.

In short, it’s been reliable data in this nation for decades: majority black neighborhoods are crime ridden enclaves. If blacks and whites were committing crimes at the same rate, then black and white cities would have similar crime rates. That is demonstrably not the case, therefore black and white crime rates are NOT the same.

Anyone with evidence to the contrary, please provide it. I am however, going to ask that you provide more than “Nuh, uh. You are wrong you racist.” I have shown my work. You show yours.

If a person cares about this country and the people in it, you must care about ALL of the people in it, even the minority groups like blacks. If you want to improve the nation and its people, then you have to first admit where the problems are. If you are going to do something to fix the black crime problem (and there IS one) then you have to do more than simply say that blacks aren’t committing crimes at a higher rate than all other demographics and claim that it’s just whites are being racist. That isn’t going to fly.

Scorpions

For the past few days, the news in Memphis has been dominated by the reported abduction of a school teacher who was kidnapped while out for an early morning jog. Her abduction was caught on tape and the story was made even more compelling since she is the granddaughter of a philanthropist billionaire. Her body was positively identified this morning, found less than a mile from her accused abductor. The cause of death hasn’t been released, but we can all assume that it wasn’t due to COVID. I’m also guessing that there will be evidence of sexual abuse.

The man accused from abducting her is Cleotha Abston.

Abston has quite the lengthy criminal history, dating back to when he was just 12 with charges including aggravated assault with a weapon and rape, all before the age of 16. Then, just after his 16th birthday, he graduated to the big leagues when he kidnapped a prosecuting attorney Kemper Durand at gunpoint in 2001, before forcing the man into the trunk of his car. Abston drove Durand around in the trunk of the stolen car for hours before taking him to a gas station ATM in order to force Durand to withdraw money.

Durand would later testify in court that he believed he would be murdered after the withdrawal. As luck would have it, an armed guard happened to enter the gas station during the robbery, and Durand would plea for help. Abston was convicted of the kidnapping and sentenced to 24 years in prison after being tried as an adult. He was released less than two years ago. In the two years since being released, neighbors have referred to him as the “creepy pervert” living down the street. He stayed with his brother, who is also a convicted felon (armed robbery). I mention the brother because he was also arrested last week for possession of drugs with intent (fentanyl and heroin) and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. (I wonder why they didn’t add possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, which would add a 5 year minimum under Federal law. We don’t need more gun laws, we need to enforce the ones we have.)

On Monday, Abston was arrested on charges of identity theft, theft of property under $1,000 and fraudulent use of a credit card, all unrelated to Ms Fletcher’s violent abduction. I’m sure they are about to add first degree murder to that list of charges.

Isn’t it time that we admit that blacks are largely a race of criminals who have a pathological inability to live in civilized society? It’s well documented that more than half of all homicides and nearly half of all violent crimes, are committed by blacks. In Memphis, the chances of becoming a victim of violent crime are 1 in 119, compared to 1 across 341 in Tennessee.

If the young teacher in this case had been willing to admit this fact, she would not have been out jogging in the early hours of the morning. I’m sure that she felt safe, but safety is an illusion. I’ve said this before: Stay away from areas where blacks congregate. Stay out of the cities, and be armed at all times.

As for Mr Abston, I wonder how attached his victim’s grandfather was to her. If I were a billionaire philanthropist and someone murdered my granddaughter, I would find a way to let someone in the jail know that, should her killer meet a particularly painful death in the prison, there would be some kind of reward coming. I might even see if I could arrange for the prison guards to assist in the effort. Justice would be done, and vengeance would be mine.

Isn’t it time that we had enough of this bleeding heart shit?

Cops Stealing PMs

This man sued PA cops because they took his silver coins and bullion. Note that the suit wasn’t dropped because it didn’t have merit. It was dropped because the man just couldn’t do it any longer.

I have a problem with how it all went down:

Because of Schifter’s rambling and vague answers plus a record showing arrests in three states, Conrad sought permission to search the RV.

It was denied due to six dogs in the RV. Asked if he would allow a search were it not for the dogs, he said no.

So no probable cause, they asked to search and were denied. So far, I don’t have a problem.

A search was conducted after Conrad’s drug detection dog had an alert at the front and passenger side of the RV. That is when the cash, bullion, coins and jewelry were discovered.

The entire thing of drug dogs alerting is bullshit. It is long past time for drug dogs to be eliminated as probable cause.

Dogs are very good at reading people. They know that if they give their handler what he wants, they get a reward. If the cop wants the dog to alert on a car, the dog will alert on a car. There was one study that actually supported that, but once the study was published, cops have refused to participate in any more studies unless those studies are being performed by pro-policing organizations.

Cops don’t even keep records of how often dogs alert to drugs and then no drugs are found. The police say:

“There’s been cars that my dog’s hit on… and just because there wasn’t a product in it, doesn’t mean the dog can’t smell it,” says Gunnar Fulmer, a K9 officer with the Walla Walla Police Department. “[The drug odor] gets permeated in clothing, it gets permeated in the headliners in cars.”

The problem here is obvious- even giving the dog the benefit of the doubt, probable cause means that the search is being done because drugs are probably there. What the cop in the above quote is saying is that by alerting, the dog is indicating that drugs may have been there at some time in the past. The dog indicates the odor of drugs, but not the presence of drugs. That isn’t the same thing and shouldn’t be enough to trigger a warrantless search of someone’s property.

Anyhow, back to the story at hand.

The silver was seized and taken to the state police barracks in Milton where Schifter claimed he had bought them periodically over the past several months at Nevada Coin and Jewelry but did not have any receipts.

Contact was made with the manager of the business who said Schifter always paid cash.

A review of receipts that were obtained revealed eight purchases for silver bullion between Oct. 17 and Dec. 19, 2019, totaling $64,904. One was in the name of the woman with him and the others in his.

That should have been the end of it. If they can’t prove that he bought the coins with the results of criminal enterprise in court, that is the end of it.

There were suspicions of money laundering because an ion scan indicated the cash had been in close proximity of high levels of methamphetamine.

We aren’t talking about cash. Where did cash enter this story? Just bad reporting. Are they saying that Schifter had cash on him that tested positive for drug residue? So what, most of the money in the nation does.

This is nothing more than theft. The government is out to steal your possessions. Asset forfeiture is theft. It is unconstitutional, but the courts don’t care about that.
