Another Picture of Dorian Johnson

1 09 2014


NYT profiles the liar who made up the story about Michael Brown on his knees with his hands up in the air and his back turned toward Officer Wilson, the reason why the black undertow and white hipsters are all running around with their hands in the air these days.

It’s the usual Bell Curve City babble.

Here are the interesting nuggets:

Johnson grew up in Walnut Park, one of St. Louis’s tougher areas, where he lived in a house shared by his mother and aunt, who had 19 children between them.

Speaks for itself.


He soon left [Lincoln University in] Jefferson City, in part, he said, because he believed police targeted students from St. Louis.

They’re not really paranoid if the cops are really out to get them.


His younger brother D’Angelo, a popular 16-year-old student at Northwest Academy of Law, was killed while drag racing. He lost control of the Pontiac Grand Am he was driving and slammed into a tree. His older brother heard the news and ran to the scene.

Police stopped Dorian Johnson before he reached the car. He fought them so hard that he was handcuffed and taken to a holding cell.

“It was split in half,” Johnson said of the burgundy car. One of its five occupants was thrown from a window, and three others were hospitalized. D’Angelo was pronounced dead in an ambulance.

“I was angry,” Johnson said. “I was telling [the police] this is my little brother. I watched my little brother die.”

On a hunch, I searched my own blog and found this.  I thought back at the time that these kinds of things were car loads of blacks joyriding and hitting the gas for no particular reason, or just because they could.  Fancy that the only fatal victim of that turns out to be the younger brother of the man who was friends with the man who was central in the narrative of the biggest story of the year in St. Louis and the biggest story of August in the whole country.  Anyway, it turns out that the reason these blacks hit the gas is because they’re drag racing each other.  That part seems to get left out of media accounts of these stories.

One more thing:

His family called him “Mike Mike,” a name meant to distinguish him from his father. His parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, were teenagers when he was born. They never married, and Brown, who has two sisters and a brother, bounced between the homes his parents shared with their respective spouses. When his mother moved out of the school district, according to friends, Brown began living with his grandmother in the Canfield Green apartment complex.

So Michael Brown’s link to the Canfield Green apartment farms wasn’t his friend Dorian Johnson, but his grandmother.



Fall Down Go Boom

What’s the matter, Ferugson?  Did your narrative fall down go boom?

Well, then, come to Uncle Blogmeister, and let him put a band-aid on it and make it all better.

Really, if this is accurate, and what makes me think it is mostly is because it’s in a paper that was loath to admit these things until now, then Michael Brown wasn’t really the best or the worst among the Bellcurvii you find in St. Louis or anywhere.  For the NYT to run with this is more or less the establishmentarians on the left dog whistling a message to the ground troops to retreat from the Fergaza Strip because it’s an unwinnable and counterproductive battle for them.

The big omission in this is that it does not mention the sine qua non, Brown running directly at and then lunging at Officer Wilson.  It’s the proximate causation to explain why he is now in the next world.

Here Come The Judges

North County

P-D investigation into the lack of blacks on St. Louis County municipal P.D.s (not county the County Browns) in municipalities that are least 10% black in terms of population.  Toward the end they accidentally stumble on the right reason, that hardly any apply, and you know why.

That said, now I think I know what the official putsch is going to be.

Using the Federal courts to do to local police departments what they did to school districts a long time ago.

Most of us think that all they did, the Federal judiciary, was order forced busing and deseg within a school district.

Actually in some cases it went a lot further: In St. Louis, there was an order of a voluntary deseg program between districts, and in Kansas City, they ordered a massive spending program for the KCPS and ordered that the KCPS allow white suburban students to enroll (but thankfully, not the other way around), the genesis of the olympic swimming pools and the model UN discussion halls.

“But Blogmeister, we know that, too.”

Okay, but I bet you don’t know this, which turns out to be relevant to the whole Ferguson hullabaloo:

At one point in the 1970s, the Federal courts in St. Louis ordered the subsumation of the then all black Kinloch school district into what was then a mostly white Ferguson-Florissant school district, and then an “internal” deseg program within the new larger district.

So add this all together, and what do I predict?

If, for example, the Ferguson P.D. only has three blacks and one patrol-level black in a department of 53, and that won’t change because blacks won’t apply, then the Federal courts will either start merging municipal police departments or perhaps ordering all municipal P.D.s in St. Louis County eliminated and all law enforcement duties in the county will come out of the St. Louis County P.D., which at this time only has primary jurisdiction over unincorporated areas and municipalities without a P.D. for whatever reason (too small, can’t afford, corruption investigation, etc.). And the St. Louis County P.D. (“County Browns,” for their brown uniforms) are affirmative action happy, thank you Charlie Dooley.

Because, that damned 14th Amendment of that damned Constitution that all these damned Constitutionalists love so much.

A half good half bad missive about how rosy our multicultural future may not be.

Because, they can’t figure out why Iceland is so tranquil and its people so happy in spite of its homogenous population, and when only white men are involved in something, bad decisions are made, which explains why the Apollo program was such a failure.

*  That’s what we do in modern Amurrika, argue about how best to hand more political power to blacks.  And Jeff Smith of all people should know that Ferguson is a big and populous municipality by North County standards.

I wish I could have made it, but I had to spend Saturday catching up on work at my day job.  What makes me SMH is why the media are so shocked that Darren Wilson’s tip jar is fuller than Michael Brown’s.  Hello, stupid:  It’s Wilson that might need to spend a lot of money on lawyers soon.  The only thing that the people who are survived by Darren Wilson need money for is his funeral.  But I forgot:  Benjamin Crump is going to want a bunch of dough up front in his efforts to shake down Ferguson.

They call it a “tirade,” I call it the truth.

Don’t fire Dan Page, give him Jay Nixon’s job.

Really?  He was tall and a bit stocky.  He wasn’t a gay Fat Albert.

The caption of this reads:

Lohgan Booker stopped to visit a mural tribute to Michael Brown painted by Joseph Albanese on the side of Signature Screenprinting at Union Boulevard and Cote Brilliante Avenue on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014. “I just want to let this man rest,” said Booker. The screenprinting business co-owner Natasha Harris said that she was looking for a statement with a positive effect. “We respect the police, but we just want the violence to stop,” said Harris.

If you look up the corner of Union and Cote Brilliante on GSV, (it’ll be just to the west of Sherman Park, named after that Sherman, who is buried in Calvary Cemetery), you’ll see that that area was Fergusony long before Ferguson.

The race and sex breakdown of the GJ.   Definitely enough whites to preclude charges being brought, provided they don’t prostrate themselves to the blacks.

*  This “police militarization” meme is basically the way TPTB try to do “LOOK SQUIRREL” to divert rightist-reactionary political energy away from race to fly it into the ground of a liberal-libertarian hobby horse.  (The issue is worth discussing in general, but it’s just not relevant now and in this matter.)  As it turns out, the only way that the agencies (not counting the MONG) involved in trying to keep the peace on the FerGaza Strip were “militarized” is that the Pentagon gave them some stuff, and almost all of that were either 5.56 rifles or .45 pistols, and we can’t even be sure that those were used or deployed to the FerGaza Strip.  Virtually all the scary looking stuff used in Ferguson, those agencies purchased out of their own budgets.  Very very little came from the Pentagon giveaway program.

It should be noted that law enforcement agencies have been “militarized” in the sense of having military-style ranks and a Weberian power structure for a long time.  Because, when people have badges, guns, a monopoly on the use a force and a whole lot of public trust and an investment of the benefit of the doubt from that same public, you need a clear definition on who controls whom and how.

*  At least in this medium, I have not yet and will not post that supposed screen shot of a six-item long juvenile arrest record for someone named Michael Brown.  If that’s a real person at all, then I highly doubt it’s the same Michael Brown.  All six of these juvenile arrests were from the St. Ann PD, which means they were in St. Ann itself.  While blacks can get around do to stuff, why would that Michael Brown, who lived and went to school in various places in the Normandy and the Ferguson-Florissant school districts all his life, develop a St. Ann fetish?  A juvenile getting popped six times by the St. Ann PD is all but certain to live in St. Ann, and there’s no evidence that this Michael Brown ever lived in St. Ann or attended any schools in the Ritenour school district.

What proves my contention right is that someone is suing to try to get this Michael Brown’s juvenile arrest sheet unsealed if there is one.  Proving that the so-called one with six St. Ann PD entries isn’t it.

I have three different Michael Brown entries in my phone’s address book, all three are (if none have moved away) residents of the metro area, from professional relationships I’ve made over the years.  Even though I only ever converse with one of them with any kind of frequency these days.

So he liked to buff his banana to the sound of his own voice.  Well, those are just song lyrics, but if he sang about it, there’s a good enough chance he actually did it.  I’ve listened to a little bit of his “music,” and I don’t see why he got his jollies off on his own voice; his voice was probably the only adult man’s voice worse than mine.

*  If it’s being stupid while trying to walk back stupid…it’s gotta be Rand Paul, whose political stock should be tanking under the floor right now.
