  • U.S. Split Along Racial Lines on Backlash Against Police, Poll Finds

    Americans are bracing for a summer of racial disturbances around the country, such as those that have wracked Baltimore, with African Americans and whites deeply divided about why the urban violence has occurred, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll has found. A resounding 96% of adults surveyed said it was likely there would be additional racial disturbances this summer, a signal that Americans believe Baltimore’s recent problems aren’t a local phenomenon but instead are symptomatic of broader national problems. When asked to explain recent events in Baltimore and other cities that have seen confrontations between police and members of...
  • Judge makes rare decision to set aside jury verdict in criminal sexual conduct case

    JACKSON, MI – Concerned he would have to send an innocent man to prison, a Jackson County judge on Friday set aside a jury's guilty verdict in a criminal sexual conduct case. The rare decision, a first in Circuit Judge John McBain's 13 years on the bench, means Gregory Patterson, 50, is not guilty of three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, felonies that would have sent him to prison for a minimum of 25 years. A jury convicted Patterson of the offenses at the close of a March trial, but McBain granted a motion made by defense lawyer George...
  • Of Course Democrats Deserve The Blame For What’s Happening In Baltimore

    If a person happens to point out that Baltimore’s criminally inept government has been run exclusively by Democrats since 1967 (with one Republican mayor since 1947), and features not a single council member who isn’t a liberal, they may be called a “lazy apparatchik.” Because not everything, you see, is reducible to mere party politics. Now, if an economic renaissance sparked by the progressive policies of Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had lifted Baltimore from poverty, I imagine Democrats would be eager to claim credit for the accomplishment. Entire political debates are predicated on the effectiveness of partisan ideas. We blame presidents for...

    Thanks to the fine work of the staff at the Gateway pundit, we have hard numbers that refute the lie that more Black males than White males are shot by our police. More than this, the numbers show that substantially more police officers than Black males are killed each year. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has compiled the roll of police officers killed over the past five years. Their research reveals that on average 136 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty each year during the years 2010 through 2014. The Gateway Pundit has...

    It often seems that no one has the courage to say anything until after the fact. Genocide is the systematic and deliberate attempt to extinguish a race, ethnic group, social group or religion. After the most well documented and systematic act of genocide in recorded History, the so-called Final Solution to the Jewish Problem perpetrated by the death cult known as the Third Reich, the surviving Jewish people adopted the motto, “Never Again.” They had been the target of countless pogroms throughout History and this was their vow, this is their pledge to themselves, “Never Again!”

    my fevered brain | today | me
    I've looked and been unable to find any news story that says whether the six cops who were involved in moving Mr. Grey were Black, White, Hispanic (or, I suppose, other). It's my understanding that five of the six have given statements to the investigators and one, presumably for Fifth Amendment reasons, hasn't. The race of the cops is obviously relevant but i haven't seen anything that says what race(s) they are. The wisdom and knowledge of all Freepers will be gratefully accepted.

    In watching Baltimore burn, "progressives" run out of scapegoats. Over a week ago, a black man named Freddie Gray died after being arrested by police. Videotape shows Gray being dragged into a police van. Within a less than half an hour, his spine was somehow severed and he died seven days later. Did an officer or the officers intentionally or inadvertently cause the injury? Did the vehicle suddenly stop, causing a possibly untethered or poorly tethered suspect/passenger to break his neck? Why was Gray stopped in the first place? Given that he ran from the police, did this provide a...

    Rioters in Baltimore tried to light a business owner on fire Monday, successfully burning his place of business. Luckily, they failed to murder him. Essam el Ghannam, the owner of Papa Palace, a pizza restaurant, was attacked Monday by Baltimore protesters. Rioters came to his place of business and screamed, "Fire him. Fire the dirty pizza man." They then sprayed him with lighter fluid. “Then they poured the lighter fluid on me, on my car and hit me with flames from lighters," Ghannam said. He was able to escape, but his business did not survive the flames. ...“This is my...

More than 100 people, about half of the 209 taken into custody during the unrest, have yet to be formally charged, Capt. Eric Kowalczyk said at a Wednesday afternoon news briefing. Because of the fluid nature of the situation, and officers' attempts to quickly round up lawbreakers, much of the required booking documents have yet to be compiled, he said. "If we're not able to meet the 48-hour window to charge, they will be...

But what I've never seen is a single protest or sign proclaiming "Black Violence Matters." Or does black-on-black murder not matter to black Americans? How about blacks looting and burning black businesses? Does that matter? I heard ultra-liberal (and pathetically politically correct) CNN analyst Sally Kohn blame white America today.

But he said there was no excuse for rioters to engage in senseless violence. Obama said people in Baltimore who stole from businesses and burned buildings and cars should be treated as criminals. "They aren't protesting, they aren't making a statement, they're stealing," Obama said.

While Ms. Samuels warns teens that the practice is dangerous, as it has led to bruises and some disfiguration, the main point of Ms. Samuels's piece is that trying to create big lips is racist.

The proposed central-government guidelines — which a court-appointed federal “monitor” overseeing their implementation claims were made with the cooperation of the NYPD and City Hall — are the consequence of a 2013 ruling that the department’s stop-and-frisk practices are “unconstitutional.” Of course, what’s certainly unconstitutional is federal control of local police, irrespective of whether or not, as the Barack Obama administration purports, the goal is to...

Or perhaps he did not think there was much of a difference between “white” and “Hispanic.” Or, as he said, he simply checked the wrong box by accident.

    BLACK JUDGE GIVES BLACK HOME INVADER PROBATION, ATTACKS WHITE FAMILY FOR RACISM by AWR HAWKINS A black judge, offended by a white family’s concern that their toddler was frightened of black men after a violent home invasion and robbery, publicly shamed them and let off the convicted man with mere probation.

Wallace, who was convicted of robbery, had been found guilty of participating in the March 2013 armed...

She made her sentiments known in an expletive-laced Facebook post: Despite the fact that men and women are allowed to choose who they want to date, Strober believes that Mr. Lamar should be judged based on the color of the skin...

    According to a teacher at Cornell University, race is a determinant of "coolness." Yesterday, Dexter Thomas, who is helping teach the course "Asian 1104 "FWS: let's talk about cool stuff, #swag"" at Cornell this semester, wrote an article in the Guardian titled, "Why white people aren’t as cool as black people." According to Thomas, as opposed to whites, "Black people have an effortless cool about them, almost no matter what they do." President Obama, Thomas continues, "seems to be the King Midas of political cool. Any topic he touches – whether it’s climate change, rap music, or health care –...

      The Democratic Party has been waging war against Blacks since the election of the first Democratic President, Andrew Jackson who owned slaves. They were the party of slavery whose voters included the cotton farmers. In their party platforms from 1840 to 1860, the Democrats supported slavery.

As we all know Lincoln won the nomination and later was elected President. On the Democratic side, the party was split between Northern and Southern Democrats. The southern...

    Madison, WI - A group of protesters called Monday for the United Nations to conduct an independent investigation of a white Wisconsin police officer who killed an unarmed biracial man because they feel the U.S. government can't be trusted.

They added they don't have faith that any U.S. government agency could conduct an objective probe because it's all one prejudiced system. Protesters took...
