  • Dylann Roof, Charleston Shooting Suspect, Is Expected to Face Federal Hate Crime Charges

    New York Times ^ | July 22, 2015 | MATT APUZZO
    WASHINGTON — Dylann Roof, the man suspected of killing nine people at a historically black church in Charleston, S.C., last month is expected to face federal hate crime charges, two law enforcement officials said on Wednesday. Mr. Roof, 21, already faces nine counts of murder in state court and could face the death penalty there. But Justice Department and F.B.I. officials have said the Charleston shooting was so horrific and racially motivated that the federal government must address it. The Justice Department had also been considering the seldom-used charge of killing someone while obstructing religious freedom, which is eligible for...

    Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell is now calling for hate crime charges in the horrific mob beating of a white man who was left bloodied and unconscious on the sidewalk on the Fourth of July. The brutal attack was first described as “anti-white” by officer Alicia Essert in the original incident report, but Capt. Mike Neville said on Monday that the preliminary description was incorrect. Chief Blackwell has apparently reconsidered and found cause to ask Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters to pursue hate crime charges in the beating, the Cincinnati Inquirer reported.
  • Man hit with milk crate, called 'white bread' by...black men in anti-white attack on Staten Island

    Cops are hunting a group of men behind an anti-white attack on Staten Island, officials said Saturday. Seven black men called a 28-year-old man “white bread” and other insults as they threatened him on Vanderbilt Ave. and Targee St. in Fox Hills about 3 p.m. on June 19, cops said. The group then chased after the white victim, punching and kicking him. They struck him with a milk crate, a fluorescent light bulb, a bottle and other garbage they picked up, officials said. The victim managed to escape his attackers, suffering only minor wounds. The NYPD’s hate crimes task force...

    A man claiming responsibility for hanging a Confederate flag from a memorial for black soldiers says he didn’t intend it as a racist gesture—and in fact was protesting the symbol and what he believes it represents. Some who saw the flag hanging from the memorial—including a woman who took it down—interpreted its placement as a hateful gesture. The flag hung from a sword held by a sculpture of Col. Robert Gould Shaw, commanding officer of the Union Army’s Massachusetts 54th Regiment.
  • What's the Point of Charging Dylann Roof With Hate Crimes?

    06/25/2015 7:08:40 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 41 replies
    Reason ^ | 06/25/2015 | Jacob Sullum
    Citing unnamed "federal law enforcement officials," The New York Times reports that the Justice Department probably will file federal hate crime charges against Dylann Roof in connection with last week's massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. Since Roof already faces nine murder charges in state court, where he will be subject to the death penalty if convicted, an additional federal prosecution seems gratuitous. It does not even offer the prospect of a more severe punishment. To the contrary, the maximum penalty Roof would face under federal law is life in prison, while there is a distinct possibility that...

    Police are searching for a gunman who opened fire Wednesday night at a historic African American church in downtown Charleston, S.C. Charleston officials said nine people were killed and others were injured. “I do believe this is a hate crime,” Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen said at a late night news conference, without explaining the basis for his conclusion. Police said the victims had gathered Wednesday night in the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston for a prayer meeting when the shooting occurred. Police are now searching for the suspect, described as a clean-shaven white male in...

Here in the good ol’ free-market U.S.A., we still prefer economic sanctions for deviating from ruling-class orthodoxy. But give us time. As a much older nation, the UK’s had longer to make “progress.” There’s a parliamentary election set for 10 days for now so Miliband’s speaking here with an eye to that. I wonder which group he’s hoping to goose into turning out with these remarks — devout Muslims or Britain’s Social Justice Warriors? Frankly, apart from women’s issues and gay rights,...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. – Two North Carolina churches recently suffered thousands of dollars in damage as their buildings and property were trashed and spray-painted with pro-homosexual messages. Officials at Bales Memorial Wesleyan Church in Jamestown arrived last Saturday to find the church sign broken and pelted with eggs and silly string. Some of the church windows had been smashed, flowers were uprooted and parking signs were ripped out the ground. The hood of the church bus was scratched as if it had been keyed, and a sign was shoved through the front grill. A number of messages were also spray painted...

    Federal officials say six people have been charged in connection with home-invasion robberies that targeted victims of Indian and Asian ancestry. Some of those violent robberies took place in faraway Michigan. Others were close to home — in Flower Mound, Southlake, Allen and Coppell. According to the indictment provided today by the U.S. Attorney’s Office all six of the indicted are from Texas. Among their ranks is a 19-year-old woman arrested by Flower Mound police in early December, when police say Johnisha Ann-Marie Williams knocked on a family’s door and helped three armed men enter a house along the 5600...

The ruling came in the case of 16-year-old Philip Chism, who has pleaded not guilty to raping and killing 24-year-old Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer on school grounds in October 2013. Despite having been 14 at the time of the killing, Chism is charged as an adult.

Before them, hundreds of young black males were loitering about, some without shirts. Other local residents --...

The fact that Terrence Lavaron Thomas has not been charged with a hate crime shows yet again that hate crime laws are political tools in the hands of the powerful, used to menace the powerless groups they dislike.

Melbourne police said officers and firefighters discovered the blaze after a fire alarm sounded. Arson was the expected cause, police said. Fire sprinklers helped contain the flames to a storage unit connected to the 125,000-square-foot building. The words "Allahu Akbar" were spray-painted on the storage unit.

He served 45 days of a three-month sentence, all while maintaining...

    19-Year-Old Jessica Lane Chambers was brutally murdered in Mississippi two nights ago. Unfortunately the details of her murder are so horrific to comprehend they make the current racial anxiety in the headlines seem small, yet also potentially more explosive. …When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire. […] They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose… Yes, Jessica was white; and no, by all accounts her killer(s) were not. She wasn’t just attacked, beaten, and burned alive – she was brutalized beyond all horrific imaginings. When you identify what took place,...

    Such hypocrisy and reverse-racism is breathtaking. The brutal truth is Sharpton, Holder and Obama will never address this officer’s death because he was white and because they protect the black gangs out there. Officer Kevin Quick was kidnapped and murdered by four black gang members – they belong to the Bloods street gang known as the 99 Goon Syndicate out of Los Angeles. Quick was forced to drive from ATM to ATM to get money, then he was taken out in the woods and executed as a gang initiation rite. It never really made the news and it certainly didn’t...
