  • The Hate Crimes You Don’t Hear About

    02/18/2013 4:40:40 AM PST · by IbJensen · 19 replies
    Cleveland, Ohio. A white man on a moped accidentally bumped into a truck being driven by a black man. He fell over but was not injured. A crowd of 40 white people pulled the black driver from the truck and brutally beat him. One of them climbed in the truck and ran over the driver, killing him. The crowd cheered. Jacksonville, Florida. A group of four to six white men agreed that they would brutalize the next black person they saw walking down the street. That person turned out to be a mentally disabled 50-year-old, whom they beat and stomped...

    DETROIT -- Everybody got their five minutes with Dave. Everybody got to pet the bunny. Everybody but poor ol' me. After his Wednesday State of the City speech, Mayor Dave Bing's men passed him around to the media, each outlet getting a whopping five minutes to feed Hizzoner carrots -- five minutes is an old-school political way of keeping the q & a superficial. That's how you interview Hollywood starlets, not serious public servants. My bosses nominated me for the chore. But Dave was a scared rabbit. Dave said no. Dave's guy told my boss: "This is not the right...

    Shortly after her move from New Hampshire to Newtown in 1998, Nancy Lanza had good news about her troubled son. "Adam is doing well here, and seems to be enjoying the new school," Lanza wrote to a friend back in Kingston, N.H., in a Feb. 9, 1999, email. But Adam, 6, then diagnosed with a condition that made it difficult for him to manage and respond to sights, touch and smell, eventually struggled in the first grade at his new school — Sandy Hook Elementary. His mother would respond, touching off a 10-year educational shuffle with moves in and out...

    A veteran parking enforcement officer who unsuccessfully used a “sleepwalker’s defence” to explain why he punched a suspect in police custody was sentenced Friday to 100 hours of community service in Old City Hall Court. “I have determined that this is an exceptional case,” Justice Peter Harris said. The judge noted that Devon Henry, 43, has already been fired for the attack at 14 Division on April 24, 2011, and that Keith Ryan, the man he punched twice, didn’t want him sent to jail.

    YPSILANTI, Mich. — More than 21 years after she went to prison, Barbara Hernandez enters the cinderblock visitation chamber at the Women's Huron Valley Correctional Facility in the turquoise blouse with applique flowers she keeps for special occasions. Her makeup is carefully applied but cannot hide the age lines that spread, thin but unmistakable, from the corners of her eyes. "Thank you for coming," the 38-year-old inmate says softly. Her eyes, chestnut and brooding, are offset by a gentle smile. She holds out a hand in welcome.

For example, when the NRA first proposed...

    Is it possible for organized crime to exist without a corrupt government that is paid to look the other way? I think this is what is happening in Chicago as hundreds of people are killed in the streets while the city government wrings its hands blaming anything and anyone but themselves for the catastrophy of 500 needless deaths. Gangstas hire straw buyers to purchase guns outside of the Chicago city limits. When the straw buyers are caught, their sentences are plea bargained down to very low level misdemeaners allowing the straw buyers to keep buying guns for the gangstas. This...

From this point on, simple property crimes will no longer qualify for immediate, or possibly any, attention. Chicago Deputy Chief-of-Patrol Steve Georgas explained that “last year over 500 people were murdered in our city. Obviously, with this serious mayhem underway we don’t have time for the small stuff. If somebody shoots somebody else we’ve got to have the resources available to respond. This has to take priority over mere theft.” The change was directed by Mayor Rahm...

    A Melbourne priest claims the extra strain placed on Pope Benedict from dealing with widespread sexual abuse within the Catholic Church may have been a factor in his resignation. Father Max Vodola said the elderly Pope's shock exit from the role may be because he is too physically and emotionally weak to deal with the decades-old problem. It comes as Archbishop Denis Hart leads Victorian tributes to the Pope, who he describes as gentle and loving.

Not only have hundreds of well-trained officers equipped with military-style vehicles – including helicopters with thermal imaging devices one pilot says can pick out a rabbit in a snowstorm – been unable to find the man charged with killing three people and wounding two others on a rampage aimed at police officers and their families.

That study shows strangers committed about 38 percent of non-fatal, violent crimes including rape, robbery and assault in 2010, the most recent data available. Of that amount, only an average of 10 percent used a firearm while committing the crime. In...

Rashid proceeded to rape the girl and was subsequently arrested. In his defense, Rashid claimed that he simply "did not know" it was illegal to rape minors. Rashid stated that "he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless," and thus consent was not necessary. He further argued...

    Hours before the Senate Judiciary Committee held Newtown-inspired gun control hearings, MSNBC's Morning Joe program brought on former Playboy chairwoman and CEO Christie Hefner to warn that warmer weather in Chicago has been a contributing factor in the number of gun deaths in the Windy City. "[W]e are having this climate change effect that is driving" young men in Chicago to commit 500 homicides in 2012 she insisted. For his part, quasi-conservative host Joe Scarborough made no attempt to press Hefner on this outrageous claim, although he did mildly mock it. In doing so, however, he dismissed conservative bloggers with...

    A Framingham man enraged to learn the baby girl who was born July 23, 2010, was the product of an extramarital affair stabbed his unfaithful teenage wife to death and then lived in their apartment for days with her decaying corpse and their older child before fleeing solo to Mexico, prosecutors said today. Heather Alleyne, 19, just two weeks after delivering her daughter Neveah — heaven spellled backward — and one day after she gave up custody of the infant to the baby’s biological father to save her marriage, “suffered a brutal and excruciating death,” Assistant Middlesex District Attorney Joseph...

    Who isn't sickened by the moral decay and heinous acts of violence across our country? My heart and prayers continue to go out to victims everywhere. But do gun bans -- such as the one proposed this past week by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., which would outlaw 120 specific firearms -- curb violent crime? Not according to a recent Fox News investigation titled "Assault-weapons ban no guarantee mass shootings would decrease, data shows." The report concluded, "Data published earlier this year showed that while the (Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which was signed by President Bill Clinton)...

    Chicago, home of one of the nation's most stringent gun bans for fifty years, has also been the source of many frightening statistics. The city of Chicago - not the greater metropolitan area, just Chicago proper - surpassed 500 homicides in 2012 all by itself. If gun bans are the solution, the problem must be something other than a murder epidemic, because this gun ban sure isn't solving that one. It's not people from outside Chicago committing the crimes, either. An easy out for the gun banners, if it were true, would be to simply prove that the villains are...

    BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 27 (UPI) -- A grand jury indicted John and Patsy Ramsey in their daughter's death in 1999 but the Boulder, Colo., prosecutor declined to try the case, jurors said. The couple have maintained their innocence after finding their young daughter JonBenet Ramsey slain in the basement of their home on Christmas night 1996. A grand jury convened in the case indicted the couple with a class II felony, child abuse resulting in death. Members of the grand jury and others in the case told the Boulder (Colo.) Daily Camera the panel handed down the criminal indictment, but...

    Hacktivist group Anonymous took control of the U.S. Sentencing Commission website Friday, January 25 in a new campaign called "Operation Last Resort." The first attack on the website was early Friday morning. The second - successful - attack came around 9pm PST that evening. anonymous By 3am PST ussc.gov was down (it has since been dropped from the DNS), yet as of this writing the IP address (66.153.19.162) still returns the defaced site's contents. It appears that via the U.S. government website, Anonymous had distributed encrypted government files and left a statement on the website that de-encryption keys would be...

    Actor Steven Seagal took a break from filming “Force of Execution” in Albuquerque and headed south to Las Cruces on Tuesday.

According to a sheriff’s spokeswoman Seagal is a considered a reserve officer and, according New Mexico law, can only carry out police work while with a commissioned peace officer. Seagal...
