    He's the new Al Sharpton on steroids -- and he's coming to a TV near you. Benjamin Crump, camera-lovin' lawyer for the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rocketed to fame perpetuating the "Hands up, don't shoot" lie. Never mind that even the left-wing Obama Justice Department concluded that the 22 witnesses who manufactured the Black Lives Matter-promoted narrative were unreliable, inconsistent, self-contradictory, unsupported by a shred of forensic evidence, or outright lying. In Crump World, anti-police ideology trumps facts. Social justice trumps actual justice. And lying about crime pays. Big time. Crump is going Hollywood. Next week, the...
  • The Lie That Launched Black Lives Matter

    The Black Lives Matter movement began as a hashtag in July 2013 immediately after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Although the movement would be reinforced along the way by any number of lies -- “Hands up don’t shoot” comes quickly to mind -- not enough attention has been paid to the original lie, one that may eventually launch a thousand riots before it burns itself out, namely that Trayvon Martin was an innocent little boy. On the night of February 26, 2012, George Zimmerman shot and killed the seventeen-year-old Martin. For a week...
  • Debate swirls around unarmed black man’s actions prior to fatal police shooting in Tulsa

    A day after police in Oklahoma released video that shows a white Tulsa police officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man, attorneys representing the slain man’s family released photos that they said contradict a key claim in authorities’ version of events. At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Benjamin Crump — a civil rights lawyer who has represented many families of those killed in high-profile police shootings — said Terence Crutcher never reached his hands into the driver’s side window of his stalled sport-utility vehicle before he was shot by police. Crutcher couldn’t have reached into the vehicle, Crump said, because...
  • Court Must Dismiss Police Lawsuits Against Marilyn Mosby (says Michael Brown lawyer)

    Lawsuits filed by Baltimore police officers against Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby must be dismissed, according to the law. The United States Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors acting within the scope of their duties in pursuing criminal prosecution are immune from civil suits.The role of a prosecutor in a criminal case is to seek justice and represent the People of a given jurisdiction against a person charged with committing a criminal offense. This is exactly what Marilyn Mosby did when the officers involved in Freddie Gray’s death, which the medical examiner ruled a homicide, were indicted by a grand jury....

    Pam Bondi was an early endorser of Trump. She's the attorney general in her second term, an 18-year prosecutor. She's an outsider who became an insider, and she has a good, strong relationship already with the candidate.... I think he's looking for someone that brings something to his ticket that does not go against the narrative he's been selling for the last six months, and I think people like Pam would fit the bill.

    Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the Allied Veterans of the World case are disputing whether Attorney General Pam Bondi must answer a subpoena and testify. Court records show the state has asked a judge to quash a subpoena for Bondi, who is scheduled for a deposition next week by attorneys for several defendants in the gambling and money laundering case. Bondi argued in her motion that her testimony is no different from what other witnesses could offer and she is entitled to “testimonial immunity” due to her rank. Defense attorney Curtis Fallgatter argued in court documents that Bondi was briefed...

    The Ferguson grand jury is expected to make an announcement today about whether Officer Darren Wilson will be indicted for fatally shooting Michael Brown back in August. Brown family attorney Benjamin Crump was on MSNBC earlier this afternoon talking about the impending decision, and Joy Reid asked him exactly what the family is planning if Wilson is not indicted. She first asked if there’s been any official communication between law enforcement or government officials and the Brown family. Crump said there has been “none whatsoever” and that it’s obviously painful for them to have to wait like this for an...

    Sunday on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos," the attorney for the family of the late Michael Brown said,"Ninety-nine percent of the time police officers aren't charged when they kill young people of color." Host George Stephanopoulos asked if Crump has already prejudged what the grand jury is going to say and decided the process is unfair.

    When does media reporting become actual collusion with selling propaganda? Perhaps the story of Mike Brown’s autopsy will provide food for thought. We suspected from the outset the Parks and Crump version of the Mike Brown autopsy was likely just a propaganda ploy to sell their narrative. We knew New York Times reporter Frances Robles was sympathetic to their scheme because she was similarly predisposed in 2012 with the Trayvon Martin narrative. Frances Robles arrived in Ferguson Missouri the morning of the autopsy Aug 17th. Perhaps she and forensic pathologist Dr. Baden flew in together. After all, they departed the...

    You’ve seen the story of the Mike Brown family autopsy, and the grand press conference they produced to deliver it to the public. But a closer look points out why the Scheme Team actually used New York Times Frances Robles to deliver the ruse: Frances worked with the Scheme Team in 2012 (2012 bio below) while she was at the Miami Herald and was part of their inner circle of media types willing to sell the Trayvon Story. The actual truth appears to be – a rather controversial person Shawn Parcells, who is NOT a forensic pathologist, was used by...

    We know the entire set-up and construct of the Parks and Crump modus operandi. The Parks/Crump scheme cannot advance without removing the uncontrollable local players and replacing them with pre-selected outside agents. This is why they are continuing the call for removal of the Mayor, the Police Chief and the local prosecutor. As you are aware, and just like the 2012 Trayvon Martin scheme, their list of trusted media water-carriers includes: Al Sharpton, Joy-Ann Reid, Michael Skolnik and Frances Robles. Today, Frances picks up the removal ball and advances it toward the goal line. Note the phrase “who is white”...

    Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- An independent autopsy into the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, provides "ample" evidence to support the arrest of the police officer who shot him, family attorney Daryl Parks said Monday at a news conference. Parks was particularly concerned about gunshots that medical examiners hired by the family indicate came from behind and above. "Why would he be shot in the very top of his head, a 6-foot-4 man?" Parks asked. "Makes no sense." The autopsy could support witnesses' suggestions that Brown was holding his hands up in the air, said Shawn Purcell, who assisted...
  • Trayvon and Zimmerman: The Structure and Elements of a Disinformation Campaign

    "Trayvon," of course, is Trayvon Martin, the black 17-year-old who was killed two months ago in Florida. "Zimmerman" is George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot him. Referring to Martin by his first name and Zimmerman by his last is just one small tactic in the national media campaign to make Martin's death an enduring symbol of white racism. The Trayvon campaign is accurately described as "disinformation" because deception is a fundamental part of its planning, strategy, and implementation. Leftist disinformation campaigns are common but not widely understood. This article is intended to make them easier to recognize, and...
  • Michael Brown’s kin: Ferguson cops ‘assassinated him. they're trying to assassinate his character’

    NY Daily News ^ | 08/15/14
    The family of the unarmed black teenager killed by a Missouri cop accused their town’s police chief of trying to “assassinate” the victim’s character. snip But Jackson also revealed that Wilson was responding to 911 reports of a “strong-arm” robbery at a convenience store Saturday when he fatally shot 18-year-old Brown. The timing of Jackson’s revelation outraged Brown’s parents and the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has been advising them, branded it a “smear campaign.” “It’s bad enough they assassinated him, and now they’re trying to assassinate his character,” Brown family attorney Benjamin Crump said.

    (NNPA)—Do you feel George Zimmerman is “a racist?” Make a fashion statement to let the world know how you feel. The issue of “race in America” was clearly illustrated in the attention African-Americans paid to the Zimmerman trial. Nowadays, Black Americans are no longer asking, rather, they’re demanding “Justice for Trayvon Martin.” If Zimmerman thought he’d live out his days as a happy camper, he’s sadly mistaken. The “Justice for Trayvon Martin” campaign has morphed into an enterprise that’s not going anywhere, anytime soon, especially if Parks & Crump, attorneys at law, have any say in the matter. Parks &...

    As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Trayvon Martin’s parent’s settlement with the Retreat at Twin Lakes Home Owner’s Association is believed to be higher than $1 million. . . . In the same time frame the lawsuit was filed, Sybrina Fulton also filed two petitions to patent and trademark Trayvon Martin merchandise including the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “‘Justice For Trayvon.” Such Trayvon Martin merchandise is turning out to be quite lucrative for many seeking to profit from the George Zimmerman trial by pandering to both sides of the issue. While Sybrina Fulton already had a $68,768 salary with...
