He Should Be Sharing a Prison Cell With Jerry Sandusky

Resign?  Just resign, that’s it?  Sounds to me this is a violation of a whole book full of felonies.  Incidentally, Cross County, Ark. is about a 3-1 white-black ratio, and his curious case dispensation habits involved young men, so probably I would hazard to guess that there’s at least an even ratio between black and white victims, and probably more black than white.

Speaking of Jerry Sandusky, there’s news on that front, too.  Last week we found out that he’s been at it since 1976, this week the year is pushed back to 1971.  He came on as defensive coordinator at Penn State in 1969.  Point being, for decades, not just years, a lot of people knew but kept lips zipped.

UKDM headline:

‘Every time I think about those kids it gets me mad’: Obama cries for the victims of Newtown as he pushes gun control at speech surrounded by families of mass shooting victims

No tears for Chicago?

He cares so much about the kids of the top 0.1% southwestern Connecticut blue team voters and donors that as part of his executive action, invalid and bed-ridden mentally incompetent Social Security recipients will be legally prohibited from owning firearms. What he has not proposed so far is my Nutbar Law, that is, mandating that law enforcement not release details about the identity of or the manifestos of or the sociopolitics of people who committed a mass murder only for the sake of publicity for themselves publicity and/or their cause. Obama himself, much to his credit, and matching my own self-imposed policy, never lets the name of these nutbars cross his lips, so he has to know what I already figured out.

The Newtown Nutmeg Nutbar’s father was once a Vice-President for something-or-another for General Electric, and as you know, GE is a big wheel in the pro-Obama crony capitalist machine; they were rewarded by having $0 of Federal corporate income tax liability one year recently.  I wrote here that the reason why Obama takes Newtown so personally is that the Nutmeg Nutbar reminds so many big time Democrat donors and so many media people of their own sons of similar age; what he did struck a big universe of powerful people very personally.

Obama also used the occasion of today’s theatrics to bring up the Show-Me, a contention that I refuted a few days ago.

Great White Defendant

Burns, Oregon

Reason:

The first fire set by the Hammonds, which Steven Hammond said was intended to eliminate invasive species on their property, ended up consuming 139 acres of federal land. The second fire, which was aimed at protecting the Hammonds’ winter feed from a wildfire sparked by lightning, burned about an acre of public land. Although the Hammonds did not seek the required government permission for either burn, the damage to federal land seems to have been unintentional. In 2012 they were nevertheless convicted under 18 USC 844(f)(1), which prescribes a five-year mandatory minimum sentence for anyone who “maliciously damages or destroys, or attempts to damage or destroy, by means of fire or an explosive,” any federal property.

If that’s the case, then I don’t see how what he did rises to the level of “malicious.”

Viewing that penalty as clearly unjust given the facts of the case, U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan instead imposed a three-month sentence on Dwight Hammond, who was convicted of one count, and two concurrent one-year sentences on Steven Hammond, who was convicted of two counts. Those terms were within the ranges recommended by federal sentencing guidelines that would have applied but for the statutory minimum, which Hogan rejected as inconsistent with the Eighth Amendment. Last year the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, responding to a government appeal, disagreed with Hogan, saying he had no choice but to impose five-year sentences on both men, since “a minimum sentence mandated by statute is not a suggestion that courts have discretion to disregard.” That is why the Hammonds, who had already completed their original sentences, were ordered back to federal prison, the development that led to Saturday’s protest.

In rejecting Hogan’s conclusion that the mandatory minimum was unconstitutional as applied to the Hammonds, the 9th Circuit noted that the Supreme Court “has upheld far tougher sentences for less serious or, at the very least, comparable offenses.” The examples it cited included “a sentence of fifty years to life under California’s three-strikes law for stealing nine videotapes,” “a sentence of twenty-five years to life under California’s three-strikes law for the theft of three golf clubs,” “a forty-year sentence for possession of nine ounces of marijuana with the intent to distribute,” and “a life sentence under Texas’s recidivist statute for obtaining $120.75 by false pretenses.” If those penalties did not qualify as “grossly disproportionate,” the appeals court reasoned, five years for accidentally setting fire to federal land cannot possibly exceed the limits imposed by the Eighth Amendment.

Translation:  The Ninth Circus was in the Hunt for a Great White Defendant.

Now that they mention it, where the hell is BLM, anyway?

A half white half Japanese cop abusing his power to rape thirteen black women — They should be on this like white on rice to the end of time.





Laquan McDonald

24 11 2015

Chicago

Start at 5:15.

Unless there’s some extenuating circumstance or something that this video misses, then this is definitely murder on the part of Jason Van Dyke.  McDonald was not an immediate bodily threat to Van Dyke or any other person.  Another hint is that the other cops who were there and closer to McDonald before Van Dyke showed up didn’t shoot him.

Now, for a few questions:

One, why this 13 month long cover up?  Did they not want to show this back in October of last year because it was in the middle of the Fergaza Strip hoopla?  Did Rahm Emanuel put pressure on everyone to delay it until after his re-election earlier this year?  Even so, the runoff for Chicago Mayor was back on April 7, and still it took until seven months and change after that for this video finally to come out.

Two, why did the cops barge in to a nearby Burger King and, unbeknownst to the manager, erase almost an hour and a half of the joint’s surveillance footage?  By now, all we need to know is what we see above, but it is also indicative of the fact that there was a cover-up afoot.

Three, why did McDonald’s family take the $5 million settlement, which was already agreed to, and not say anything?  Were they only interested on cashing in on Laquan’s dead body?  I know I’m thinking like the cracker that I am, but if I was in that situation, I’d rather have a bad cop off the streets an in the slammer rather than the thirty pieces of silver.  It’s an insult that governments can get away with only one time large sum payouts and the cops or agents whose actions necessitated them still have their jobs and their precious pensions.

Four, why did CPD reassign Van Dyke to desk duty after the incident instead of quietly firing him?

It is often said that the cover up is worse than the crime. That’s definitely not the case here, but it’s almost as infuriating.

UPDATE

Maybe it had something to do with helping your friend, fellow Chicagoan and fellow Democrat, Rahm Emanuel, win re-election.  If this is a factor, then this cover-up and the Benghazi obfuscation are rather alike, because both involve stuffing scandals under the rug so that a Democrat could win re-election.
