A funny thing happened on the way to convicting in the court of public opinion some young Russians for the Target security crack.

Well, some Americans might do this. Except those “Americans” are too spooked by all tokens law enforcement.
How the US gave guns to Mexican cartels
‘It’s like the underwear gnomes,” my ATF colleague Lee Casa told me one time as we recounted the latest bizarre goings-on in Phoenix.
“What?” I asked.
“You ever watch ‘South Park’? There’s this episode where all the boys get their underwear stolen by these underwear gnomes. They track them down to get it back and one of them asks why they are stealing everyone’s underwear. The gnomes break out this PowerPoint and reveal their master plan: Phase One: Collect underpants . . . Phase Two: ? . . . Phase Three: Profit.”
“We’re doing the same thing,” he explained. “We know Phase One is ‘Walk guns’ and Phase Three is ‘Take down a big cartel!’ ”
Both of us were laughing now; a more fitting and appropriate allegory could never be found. Casa concluded, “Just nobody can figure out what the f–k Phase Two is!”
Aside from the fact that I think Gunrunner’s real purpose was an attempt on the part of the Obama administration to sandbag both 2A and immigration politics, if you want to believe that Gunrunner had any law enforcement utility, I think they were thinking that this was going to be the modern equivalent of nailing Al Capone and thereby squelching is outfit on Capone’s failure to pay import tariffs. IOW, catch cartel members on some process gun/weapon crime, then get ‘em into Club Fed, then all the humpty dumpties will have a great fall off the wall.
It’s as if we actually think that catching Capone on a tax technicality is what ended the Sicilian Mafia. When what really ended the Sicilian Mafia is what ends almost all mob/clan violence: The repudiation of cousin marriage and tight endogamy, and the institution of outbreeding, which Sicilians both back in Sicily and their American diaspora didn’t do until shockingly recently. Not recently in terms of my lifetime, but in terms relative to when white/European peoples in general did so.
Meanwhile, back at el rancho, Mexican drug/gang violence is just typical racial behavior, not a result of generations on end of kissing cousins. Mexican drug gangs are the modern day equivalent of Indian tribes, (because they’re fundamentally the same Indo people). Mexican cartels fighting over drug distribution routes is just about the same as two Indian tribes way back when fighting over the right to buffalo hunting territory.
Believable. Not unbelievable.
Why am I not surprised that George Soros is behind this? Now I know who was funding the oil driller’s campaign.
De Blasio gets policing advice — from ex-cons
Forget Ray Kelly, Bill de Blasio is getting his policing advice from the real experts — hardened criminals.
A group of 50 ex-cons, junkies and chronic vagrants gathered at a Manhattan “Think Tank” Thursday to describe what they thought the NYPD should be doing to make their lives easier.
The felonious forum outlined a clear “get-soft-on-crime” vision.
“I like the idea of ending stop and frisk. That was the first thing that was totally there for me,” opined Mikell Green-Grand, a 49-year-old former jailbird who has convictions for grand larceny and identity theft.
Arthur Castillo, 38 — who has been convicted for possessing stolen property and assault — said he would be much obliged if the cops just left him alone to do his thing.
“Cops won’t leave us alone!” he said. “Newly released prisoners are watched by the police and a lot of us don’t feel we have an opportunity to readapt to normal life because we are treated as criminals even though we are free.”
The event, which was held in Morningside Heights, was hosted by an advisory group called Talking Transitions, run by liberal billionaire investment magnate George Soros.
Other ex-cons suggested that de Blasio make the city easier for illegal immigrants to find work.
Of course the illegal aliens will be working in New York. That’s because all the black and citizen/legal alien Hispanic thugs will still be thugging it up, the NYPD will be completely neutered.
I think the oil driller already came up with these ideas. His leftism isn’t a ploy to gain power — For him, it goes all the way to the marrow.
Tennis instructor in Chesterfield…one of those jobs Americans just won’t do.
Or maybe he could pass himself off as the next Pancho Gonzales.
Oh well, it’s not like he’d actually be deported.
Because…jobs Americans won’t do.
How it starts:
How it ends:
Jaime Gonzalez-Alvarado, 32, and Camilo Acosta Jr., 20, were charged in federal court Wednesday for their alleged roles in the operation in Monett.
Because…comprehensive immigration reform.
Police officers in Los Angeles have long faced accusations of institutional racism, but now it appears their dogs may be unjustly discriminatory, too.
A new report focusing on the Canine Special Detail of the LA Sherriff’s Department (LASD) has uncovered a vast increase in the number of minority individuals bitten by police dogs since 2004.
And in the first six months of this year, every single victim of a bite by a LASD dog was African-American or Latino.The data was published in a new report by the Police Assessment Resource Centre (Parc), a Los Angeles-based non-profit organisation, devoted to “advancing effective and accountable policing”.
According to Parc records, the number of Latino individuals bitten by LASD canines went up 30 per cent between 2004 and 2012, from 30 to 39 bites. The number of African-Americans bitten increased by 33 per cent over the same period.
Meanwhile, police dog bites caused injuries at a much higher rate than alternative deterrents such as batons, tear gas and even guns. “Large swathes of LASD’s jurisdiction, encompassing generally affluent areas with smaller minority populations, had few [canine] deployments or bites,” the Parc report states.
“Crime rates are lower in these areas, but the stark disparity leads us to wonder why canine deployments seem to occur disproportionately in less affluent areas with larger minority populations.”
And that’s the explanation for the LAPD’s bigoted canines. It’s because they’re being deployed against the kind of criminal suspects where they would do some good, and in the case of Los Angeles and most everywhere else for that matter, that means blacks and Hispanics.
Teen and her dog thwart abduction attempt in Manchester, police say
Police here say a 15-year-old Manchester girl and her dog apparently thwarted a carload of would-be abductors Monday afternoon in Manchester.
About 3:30 p.m., someone in a passing red Pontiac Grand Am waved at the teen as she walked her dog in the 500 block of Enchanted Parkway, according to Manchester Police Sgt. Dan Rehm. After she waved back, the car carrying five people made a U-turn, pulled into the parking lot of the Park Meadows apartment complex where the girl was walking.
The car pulled up and blocked a driveway, Rehm said. All five men got out of the Pontiac, and the male driver told the girl to get in the car, police said. As the girl walked off, one of the others caught up to her, grabbed her shoulder and spun her around. The dog started barking, and as another car drove past, the suspects got spooked and drove off.
The girl told police all of the men were either white or Hispanic in their late teens or early 20s. She told police the car was a Pontiac Grand Am with faded red paint, a rear spoiler and a heavily tinted rear window. She did not have a license plate number.
Because…family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande…or something like that.
The 25 most dangerous cities in the world. Outside of Detroit and New Orleans, (duh), the list is entirely Latin America. Not one city in the Eastern Hemisphere is on the list. Probably because black Africa’s crime stats are unreliable, and also because in liberated black Africa, there is sort of a mid-range level of violence that’s worse than ordinary street crime but not quite on the level with out and outright warfare, that’s hard to classify.
Yet, I still hear the excuse that we have to import these shirtless cholos and all their people to reduce our crime rate, because they’re somehow better than blacks.
Berkeley man admits role in nationwide cocaine dealing ring
A Berkeley man has admitted to taking part in a drug smuggling ring that brought at least five kilograms of cocaine to the St. Louis area from Mexico through Salt Lake City, authorities say.
Victor Manuel Diaz-Lucas, 31, a Mexican citizen living in Berkeley until his arrest last year, pleaded guilty July 25 in East St. Louis federal court to drug distribution charges, authorities say. Nine others also have been charged in the drug trafficking ring.
Four of the defendants were living in the St. Louis area. Court documents say Maria Elena Rico Lopez, 37, of St. Louis, pleaded guilty to drug conspiracy distribution charges and is awaiting sentencing. Vincente Lopez, 39, Henry D. Brooks, 53, and Victor Castaneda, 39, all of Madison, each received 46-month prison sentences for drug conspiracy and distribution charges.
Hispanics living in virtually all black Berkeley and Madison would stick out like a sore thumb. Why else would Hispanics want to live around blacks unless they were one step up on the drug distribution ladder from the drug gang leaders, and they wanted to live close to the streets where the dope they smuggle will ultimately be sold?
Satan Worshiper Gets Life in Prison for Killing, Skinning Mom
Moises Meraz-Espinoza walked into the Huntington Park Police Department two years ago to report a crime: He had killed his mother.
Officers went to the Maywood apartment that the then-18-year-old factory worker shared with his mother, Amelia Espinoza, 42, and found a gruesome scene. A trail of blood led to the bathroom, where plastic covered the walls and floor. There, they found an electrical circular saw with pieces of bone, blood and flesh stuck to the blade. Nearby, in a freezer, police found skin and muscles stored in plastic bags. The woman’s skull, with all her teeth plucked out, her eyes removed and two upside-down crosses carved into the bone, was stashed in a backpack.
Prosecutors say that Meraz-Espinoza strangled his mother and then skinned, filleted and dismembered her body as part of a satanic ritual. A Norwalk jury convicted him of first-degree murder in June.
On Wednesday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge [*****] sentenced Meraz-Espinoza to 25 years to life in prison, saying that the slaying “certainly ranks up there at the top” of “the most disgusting, hideous and vulgar” cases he has seen during his 50 years in the legal profession.
“There at the top…the most disgusting, hideous and vulgar.” Yet you didn’t give him a mandatory life sentence. He’s 20 now, so if he does the full minimum 25, he’ll be out at 45, maybe even earlier.
This being California, the death penalty was too much to ask for.
He was doing time in Jeff City, but he was “from” Jasper County (Joplin-Webb City-Carthage), presumably by illegal way of Mexiguadeltombiazil.
Some towns in Southwest Missouri are filling up fast with the comprehensive immigration reformers, who are only here to do the first degree statutory sodomy that native born white Southwest Missourians won’t do. Since he just started a 25 bid in March 2012, I get the feeling that the circumstances of his crimes were on the severe end. Even though it’s just a way of life back in Old Mexiguadeltombiazil, we gringos frown on it.

When it’s offseason for Latino activists, you’ve gotta make money somehow. Even if it involves liberating it from banks.
Activist: Kirk is Wrong on Gangs–Not Because He’s White, but Because He’s Liberal
Paul McKinley, a conservative activist from Chicago’s south side, and former Republican nominee to replace Jesse Jackson, Jr., in Illinois’ second district, told Breitbart News, “Rush is partly right. This is a problem Mark Kirk knows nothing about. But it isn’t because he is an elitist-white boy, it’s because, as everyone in Illinois knows, Mark Kirk is an elitist liberal who calls himself a Repubilcan.”
McKinley went on to explain that Kirk’s lust for rounding up black youth in Chicago’s urban communities, which stems from the murder of Haydiya Pendelton, demonstrates either his severe lack of knowledge of the problems plaguing black communities, or willful intent to look the other way from the real problem.
McKinley says, “Chicago is a sanctuary city, but no one, including Mark Kirk or the Chicago media, wants to talk about narco-terrorism, and the illegal-alien drug cartels that are the real cause of all the violence and killings, when they are trying to pass an amnesty bill in the name of immigration reform.”
I love the way Conservatism Inc fawned over McKinley like he actually had a prayer to win.
What does narco-terrorism, the illegal alien drug cartels and the amnesty bill, all bad things which should be opposed, have to do with black gang criminality? Hint: Nothing. Blacks can be plenty violent and gang-y on their own, without any help from the people who are only here to do the gang banging that Americans won’t do.
A St. Louisan.
P.S. This is what happens when undocumented dumbasses cross over from a more comprehensive state to a less comprehensive state. The river is wide, both literally in its current over-flood-stage state and figuratively.
Bx. idiots beat up ‘Arab’ in revenge
A Bangladeshi man out for dinner at a Bronx restaurant was viciously beaten hours after the Boston Marathon bombing by thugs who called him “a f–king Arab” before pummeling him to the ground, sources said.
Abdullah Faruque, 30 — a native of the South Asian country who grew up in The Bronx — was at Applebee’s on Exterior Avenue in Melrose at about 11:30 p.m. Monday when he went outside for a smoke.
Three or four Hispanic males he’d noticed drinking at the bar followed him and angrily got in his face, he recalled yesterday.
He turned to head back inside as one of the men snarled, “Yeah, he’s a f–king Arab,” and the gang pounced, punching him on the head and body, dislocating his left shoulder and leaving him semiconscious.
A group of Hispanics (in New York’s case, most likely mulatto-Caribbeans), in their zeal to whack an Muslim in revenge for a crime for which there is no suspect yet, end up whacking a South Asian who may not be Muslim because they think he’s Arab, and of course not all Arabs are Muslim. And it’s pot-kettle-black as far as that goes, because mulatto-Caribbean Hispanics are the second most criminally inclined racial/ethnic group in New York City, behind only the you-know-whos, Bellcurvius.
Then there’s the matter of that even if he was Arab and Muslim, he didn’t do the Boston Massacre.
You know, I vaguely recall The Bronx being part of America at one time. Now it’s full of that diversity which is supposed to be a strength.
New York City
89% of homicide suspects in NYC are black or Hispanic, 90% of those stopped under SQF are black or Hispanic.
BTW, going forward, I will use “SQF” to refer to that enforcement tactic, not “stop-and-frisk.” The reason is that “SQF” stands for “stop-question-frisk.” The “questioning” is how an SQF stop falls under the legal aegis of a Terry vs Ohio stop, and therefore keeps it Constitutional, because the “questioning” almost always leads to reasonable suspicion, and shuts the race lobbies up.
In related news, mahogany mobs are now part of the New York state of mind.
Maybe not for no good reason. You see, the juvenile citizens of Lincoln are duly vibrant and diverse. And the young men among them are known to engage in such upstanding first world behavior such as not wearing shirts and not sitting on proper furniture while U.S. Marines address them about “the importance of respect and honor.”
IOW, Lincoln is becoming a third world dump. The town couldn’t have a more ironic name. An additional layer of irony would be if the local NRA resists whatever the Mayor will propose, because the NRA was established after the War Between the States because Union soldiers were generally such bad shots compared to their good guy counterparts wearing gray, so enter the NRA to teach the slugs north of the Mason-Dixon line how to shoot and shoot straight should the Yankee government start another war.
From the vid and text, this looks like a joint operation of both Chicago’s native domestic long-obsolete bipedal farm equipment and those comprehensive immigration reformers here to do the stealing that Americans won’t do. Evidence of the latter is this bit about the loot being smuggled down to Miami and eventually South America.
“Authorities say the theft rings endanger public safety and can end up costing the consumer.” Yeah it does. But our diversity is our strength.
They say he’s 17 years old and worked there for only three months. So why or how did he get promoted to “manager?”
Answer: Because I suspect they don’t mean “manager” here in the way you and I think of the word. You hear “manager” of a fast feeder and think of a middle aged white man with a big pot belly and a bald spot drowning in paperwork and stressing out over juggling the hours of the short-termer part time pimple-faced Beavis and Butt-Head teenage employees under his supervision. I think in this case, they’re calling every hush puppy jockey a “manager,” for much the same reason why every Wal-Martinez employee is an “associate,” based on this self-esteem bullshit. I figured this out implicitly a handful of years back when all of sudden more people, younger people and blacker people around here were all of a sudden calling themselves “restaurant managers.”
It’s just as bad in the white collar private or public bureaucracy. Haven’t you noticed how many “deputy assistant (fill in the blank)” or “assistant deputy (fill in the blank)” people there are? And if they can’t find a way to make a rookie janitor someone seemingly important, then they inflate his job title to “facilities engineer.”
And yes, in the case of this actual news story, my Hispanic radar is going off.
“Impossible” to end drug trade, says Calderón
ENDING the consumption and the trafficking of illegal drugs is “impossible”, according to Felipe Calderón, Mexico’s outgoing president. In an interview with The Economist Mr Calderón, whose battle with organised crime has come to define his six years in office, said that countries whose citizens consume drugs should find “market mechanisms” to prevent their money from getting into the hands of criminals in Latin America.
In an interview recorded last month for this week’s special report on Mexico, Mr Calderón said: “Are there still drugs in Juárez [a violent northern border city]? Well of course, but it has never been the objective…of the public-security strategy to end something that it is impossible to end, namely the consumption of drugs or their trafficking…
“[E]ither the United States and its society, its government and its congress decide to drastically reduce their consumption of drugs, or if they are not going to reduce it they at least have the moral responsibility to reduce the flow of money towards Mexico, which goes into the hands of criminals. They have to explore even market mechanisms to see if that can allow the flow of money to reduce.
“If they want to take all the drugs they want, as far as I’m concerned let them take them. I don’t agree with it but it’s their decision, as consumers and as a society. What I do not accept is that they continue passing their money to the hands of killers.”
Translation: It’s all gringo’s fault. What else would you expect the President of Mexico to say? They’ll never really take any collective tribal responsibility for their half of the problem. And yes, they deserve half the blame, because economic transactions are two way streets. Our demand for dope is fueling their gang violence, but the Indo has a gang propensity hearkening back to Indian (feather, not dot) and Mesoamerican tribes. It could be just as much that they supply plus the almost non-existent border between our countries is fueling our demand. We’re back to chicken/egg.
He’s dead. The man who is suspected of murdering him has fled to Mexico. Which means he probably came from Mexico to begin with.
And also…comprehensive immigration reform.
So, California wants to pass a bill that would mean that illegal alien inmates are released even when ICE puts a hold on them, and the Obama/Holder DOJ isn’t bitching a fit about preemption? And what’s this bullshit about “trust?” Sure, because we need the Hispanic community of wherever in California to trust the cops so that the violent criminals among them will go to prison the immediately be let out because of “trust” and also no prison space.
Can’t wear the Number 18 jersey, even though it belongs to the new guy in town, because “18″ also means Mara 18.
UMSL and New York City
Study: Stop, Question, Frisk Doesn’t Reduce Crime
Despite claims by city officials, local researchers say the police tactic of stopping, questioning and frisking ‘suspicious’ people on the street had no impact on New York City’s two-decade long reduction in crime.
University of Missouri-St. Louis criminologists Richard Rosenfeld and Robert Fornango recently completed the first in-depth study of SQF, looking at statistics on a precinct-wide, year-to-year basis from 2003 to 2010, “If there are effects, what our analysis suggests is that they are probably very localized and dissipate pretty rapidly over time.”
He says what’s known so far certainly shows that New York City officials are wrong to credit the program with contributing to the decline in crime, “We couldn’t find evidence that stop, question and frisk was associated with year-to-year changes of crime at the precinct-level. It seems to me, given the available evidence, it’s a stretch for officials to attribute a decade-long crime drop that is city-wide to this program.”
As for St. Louis, Rosenfeld says he would recommend the city’s police department not adopt SQF but stick with its current tactic of using intelligence-driven patrols in high crime areas.
Of course two beancounter/criminologists affiliated with a university wants the major police department in their metropolitan areas to use “intelligence-driven” tactics. Guess who specializes in that. By “intelligence-driven,” Profs. Rosenfeld and Fornango don’t mean police having stool pidgeons on a string, they mean CompStat foolishness.
As far as this business about precinct-level versus city-wide, what that means it that SQF done in New York’s ghettos are barrios won’t reduce crime within the ghettos and barrios, but it will wind up reducing crime outside the ghettos and barrios, i.e. in the parts of the city that aren’t black and Hispanic, such as much of Manhattan and Staten Island. What I mean by that is that if NYPD SQFs N’Deshawntavious in Harlem, it won’t result in N’Deshawntavious not jacking Shitavious in Harlem, but it will result in N’Deshantavious not robbing Abraham in the Upper East Side or Giovanni on Staten Island.
I’ve said it before here. SQF isn’t going anywhere. Democrat politicians might huff and puff to placate black preachers and Hispanic rabble rousers, but they won’t blow the house down because SQF keeps Jews in Manhattan safe, and Jews in Manhattan write big checks to Democrat politicians, think tanks, Super PACs, 527s and other affiliated interests, while blacks and Hispanics in Harlem, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens are only expected to vote Democrat. Democrats can’t do without money, but they can still win New York State even if a lot of blacks and Hispanics in New York City stay home on election day.
Laster, a longtime advocate for the victims of human trafficking, contacted me seeking understanding as to why the Justice Department seemingly had little interest in pursuing investigations where slavery was involved. She initially asked me why I would defend such entities when they were refusing to help the victims she worked with. I explained to her that there was surely something we could do as citizens, and I began to research the matter. I discussed the issue with various federal agents and others employed by or otherwise under the umbrella of the DOJ. I learned that the majority of law enforcement agencies did not take on human trafficking investigations due to complications arising from interacting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Agencies that received federal funding were required by federal law to inform ICE of any such investigations and cooperate with them. Unfortunately, ICE would frequently act unilaterally and raid the facility that was being investigated. This made any substantial long-term investigation impossible. ICE has a very thin charter, and removing possible illegal aliens took priority over prosecutable cases. If ICE engaged in a raid too soon, the local agency investigating the possible human trafficking was left with little evidence for prosecutions and therefore wasted much needed dollars and work hours. The end result of this dynamic was human traffickers walking away with little consequence, free to continue their enterprise, and law enforcement agencies that shied away from launching such investigations.
But the FBI exhibiting a seemingly low amount of interest in human trafficking cases was a different matter altogether. As an apex law enforcement agency, they were not required by federal law to notify ICE in the same way that local or state agencies were required. The issues were much more complex with the FBI. The FBI was able to launch investigations on their own, thus ensuring a thorough investigation with proper charges would be possible for the perpetrators of such modern-day human slavery. Unfortunately, the FBI lacked the proper resources and ability to provide the short-term and intermediate safe shelter for the victims they and their informants rescued. The FBI was dependent on the U.S. Attorneys’ Office to designate the victims as witnesses before resources were available to the victims. This dependence on the U.S. Attorneys’ Office for short-term and intermediate resources seemed to be the clog preventing freedom and safety for many trafficking victims based on my research and the FBI agents and assistant U.S. attorneys I spoke with. Human traffickers often targeted illegal aliens who were already in the United States, or would kidnap and bring unwilling citizens from other countries across the United States’ porous border. Therefore, various types of visas would have to be made available for many victims if their testimony was needed to prosecute and neutralize the perpetrators of the slavery. However, other human trafficking victims were U.S. citizens who were either suffering from various addictions or were teenage runaways. Both Laster and I saw the same DOJ hesitancy to help in both groups.
Part of the solution to this clog in the system was addressed with the creation of various visas, such as the T-Visa and the U-Visa. These two visas were designed so that federal agents and other law enforcement agencies would have a mechanism to allow witnesses to stay in the United States to testify against the perpetrators of human trafficking by designating their presence as being necessary for an investigation. Unfortunately, law enforcement was rarely willing to sign the Law Enforcement Declaration form, which was necessary to document the victim’s cooperation and a vital part of the applications. Again, this hesitancy seemed due to law enforcement agency fears of lacking the needed resources to house and feed the victims—a conclusion based on Laster’s and my experiences and discussions we had with individuals from various law enforcement agencies. Once I presented my findings to Laster, we began to strategize on possible solutions to remove the clogs and better help the victims she was working with.
Netting it out time: The FBI is scared to touch human trafficking cases because of race.
Protest over California shooting turns violent, 24 arrested
Police in the southern Californian city of Anaheim made 24 arrests overnight when violence broke out at a protest by more than 600 people over the police shooting of an apparently unarmed man.
A half-dozen storefronts were smashed in a working-class neighborhood surrounding City Hall in what was the second major clash between police and demonstrators since an officer shot dead a suspected gang member in Anaheim on Saturday afternoon.
Dozens of officers wielding night sticks faced off against the demonstrators, who at one point threw water bottles and rocks towards the police line.
Some protesters threw patio chairs through the windows of a Starbucks, according to a Reuters witness. At least five other businesses had windows smashed.
Twenty adults and four juveniles were arrested on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, Anaheim Police Sergeant Mike Bustamante said.
Translation: Aztlan is getting its panties in a wad because they think Hispanics should be exempt from the law.
This will either turn into one of two things: Either full-blown riots, or mass hundred-thousand or more person protests that accomplish nothing, for which Chicanos are well-known.
