Hate Crime in Palmdale, CA: CBS News Calls a 10-1 Attack “a Fight,” as Long as the 10 are Black

By Nicholas Stix

Apparently, the vic in this case is not a “white Hispanic,” and so the MSM will not try and get him murdered. And of course, he did not successfully defend himself. Successful self-defense by non-blacks against blacks is a big no-no among media ethics experts.

The attackers were all “boys,” mere “children.”

7 Black Boys Accused of Hate Crime in Palmdale After Attack on Latino Teen

PALMDALE (CBS) — Authorities say they’ve taken seven black youths into custody on suspicion of attacking and severely injuring a Latino teenager as he walked home from school in Palmdale.

The fight [sic] happened March 14 about 4 p.m. near Cactus Middle School, the Los Angeles Times reported. [Should read: The mob attack was committed…]

According to a written report, the 15-year-old Latino boy was approached by up to 10 male black juveniles who challenged him to a fight. [How do 10 kids “challenge” one to a fight? Either the CBS “reporter” is lying, or whoever wrote the report is. This is like when a racist black starts cursing out a non-black for no reason on the street, beyond that the black is a foot taller, and the police say the attacker and vic “had a verbal dispute.”] They surrounded him and began punching him while several others watched, the report said.

The Latino boy reportedly fell as he tried to defend himself, and the suspects continued “punching and kicking him in the face and head,” the Times reported.

The boy eventually fled and had to be treated at a hospital for multiple kicks to his head and will have to have dental surgery to repair several teeth that he lost during the attack.

The Times said witnesses identified three of the suspects by March 23.

On Wednesday, detectives detained seven juveniles who were identified in a video of the assault, which was posted on a public website, according to the newspaper.

The suspects range in age from 13 to 16 years old and face charges of assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury and committing a hate crime, the Times reported.

Seven Boys Detained in Palmdale Hate Crime
The suspects are between 13 and 16 years old, police said.

Seven African-American boys were arrested in connection with the beating of a Latino boy near Cactus Middle School in the 3200 block of East Avenue in Palmdale, Calif., on March 14, 2012. A video of the incident was posted on YouTube and subsequently taken down for evidence. KNBC4's Beverly White talks with Lt. Don Ford, of the Palmdale Sheriff's Station and concerned parents about the hate crime allegation.

Black Vs. Latino Beating Nets Arrests

Most of the suspects believed to be involved in a suspected Palmdale hate crime have been detained, according to police.

Seven suspects, ranging in age from 13 to 16, were identified as the attackers involved in a March 14 attack on a 15-year-old Latino boy as he was walking home from Cactus Intermediate School in the 3200 block of East Avenue. His wounds were not life-threatening.

Detectives discovered a video of the scene posted on YouTube, said Lt. Don Ford with Palmdale Sheriff's Station. The video has since been taken down and a copy is being used as evidence. [So, the key to breaking the case was the video that the attackers posted to Youtube. I’m not a Darwinist, but they sound like Darwin Award material, all the same.]

A group of up to 10 African-American boys challenged the boy to a fight [sic], surrounded him and then punched him while several others watched, police said.

[An earlier version read, "A group of up to 10 Black boys challenged the 15-year old to a fight, surrounded the victim and began punching him with several onlookers in the wings, police said," but I guess someone saw that the phrase “onlookers in the wings” didn’t work. Someone waiting in the wings isn’t an “onlooker,” but backup.]

The victim fell to the ground and the suspects continued punching and kicking him in the face and head before he was able to get on his feet and escape, police said.
Shoe impressions were left on the victim’s skin, police said. He was treated at a hospital for swelling caused by multiple kicks to the head and faces surgery to repair several teeth kicked out during the fight.

The suspects, all Palmdale residents, face felony charges of committing a hate crime and assault with force likely to cause great bodily harm, police said.

"There’s a lot of it going around here in Palmdale - blacks and Mexicans," said one Palmdale teen. "It’s too much."

Palmdale is one the cities that participates in the SHARE Tolerance program, which stands of Stop Hate and Respect Everyone.

Schools host presentations by sheriff's deputies on mitigating the hate and intolerance at the "root of many problems in Los Angeles County today," according to the program's website.

"Obviously, we will be redoubling those efforts to provide a safe environment for all the children here," Ford said.

Seneca police referring assault case to federal authorities
By Ray Chandler
March 28, 2012, at 6:08 p.m.
Anderson Independent Mail

SENECA —Six men have been charged with beating a North Carolina man and police say they are referring the case to federal authorities to see if the men might be charged with hate crimes.Seneca Police Chief John Covington said the investigation indicated that race was a factor in the attack, so the case file would be transferred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The men who have been charged are black. The man who was beaten is white.

The six men are charged with assault and battery by mob. [Until recently, that was legally called, “lynching.”] They are Teryn L. Robinson, 18, Tray Devon Holland, 19, Justin Dimon Alexander, 20, Derick Lee Williams, 22, Kino Martinez Jones, 25, and Montrez Obrian Jones, 22.

Seneca police, along with Oconee County deputies and agents of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, arrested the six, all of whom are from the Seneca area, on Wednesday.

All were still being held late Wednesday in the Oconee County detention center.

The arrests followed an investigation that began March 17, when Seneca police officers arrived about 12:50 a.m. at the parking lot of Applebee's at 696 By Pass 123 in response to reports of a man being beaten.

They found Terry Moore, 32, of Macon County, N.C., lying in the parking lot. He was taken to Oconee Medical Center.

According to a statement given later by Moore, he had been fishing with friends in Oconee County all day on March 16 and the group capped the day by going to the Applebee's.

As the group left, Moore said, he went to the restroom while his companions went to their vehicles. When he went into the parking lot, Moore said, he was taunted by members of a group of 15 to 20 blacks who called him names such as "tree honky" and "cracker".

One of the group hit him, Moore said, and as he reached for the alleged assailant, "everything went black."

According to one of Moore's companions, one of the assailants used a stun gun on Moore.

Moore said that he recalled being on the ground surrounded by feet and being beaten. According to one of Moore's companions, one of those around Moore appeared to try to protect Moore's head from injury.

According to Covington, none of the suspects knew Moore.

"At this time the case will remain under further active investigation and we will proceed with the state-level charges," said Covington.

Trayvon Martin: Couple who fled home after Spike Lee tweet hires Morgan firm
By Jeff Weiner
12:10 a.m. EST, March 29, 2012
Orlando Sentinel

A couple who say they were forced to leave their home after director Spike Lee retweeted their address to his Twitter followers has hired the Morgan & Morgan law firm to represent them.

"At this point, they have retained us to protect their interests" and their safety, attorney Matt Morgan said of Elaine and David McClain, an elderly Sanford couple in their 70s.

The couple's address was tweeted by a man who thought he had uncovered the address of George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch coordinator who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month.

The problem is, the address does not belong to Zimmerman but to the McClains, who have a son named William George Zimmerman who lived there in 1995 and still lives in Central Florida.

He is no relation to George Zimmerman, 28, who killed Trayvon on Feb. 26, sparking national outrage and international interest. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense and has not been arrested.

After Lee's retweet, the couple's other son says, the McClains have been forced to flee their home and live in a hotel given the rapidly spreading threats of violence against the real Zimmerman.

"At this point, they've had to move out of their home and their lives have been upended," Morgan said.

Morgan declined Wednesday to discuss any possible future litigation on the couple's behalf.

"The first thing they're hoping for is an apology and a retraction by Spike Lee," Morgan said, adding that the couple hope their story can help "heal the divide between the white and black community."

About 10 p.m. Wednesday, Lee tweeted his regrets.

"I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain's In Peace. Justice In Court," Lee wrote.

George Zimmerman is in hiding as the racially charged controversy grows. The New Black Panther Party recently announced a $10,000 bounty for his capture.

Trayvon Martin: Did he have a license to kill?

 

George Zimmerman: Did he have a duty to die?

 
Editorial Note: I’ve continued to update this page as I’ve encountered new information. Major modifications are noted. Minor modifications are not.

GZ = George Zimmerman TM = Trayvon Martin

Did GZ ignore the dispatcher’s instructions? Some claim the 911 dispatcher ordered GZ not to follow TM. But that’s not true. During GZ’s 911 call, the dispatcher asked him if he was following TM. When GZ said he was the dispatcher replied, “We don’t need you to do that.” According to Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee, “The call taker’s suggestion is not a lawful order that Mr. Zimmerman would be required to follow.” Regardless, the evidence suggests GZ took the dispatcher’s suggestion. See my post, “What if Zimmerman didn’t ignore 911?“

How did their exchange begin? Some claim GZ is wrong because he approached TM. But there is no evidence GZ approached TM or behaved inappropriately. A lawyer for Martin’s family, Attorney Benjamin Crump, told ABC News that TM’s girlfriend overheard the start of their exchange. According to Crump, the girlfriend heard TM ask, “What are you following me for?” To which GZ responds, “What are you doing around here?” But that’s all she claims to have heard of the exchange.

Who was screaming?

Chicago Shooters Don’t Wait for Weekend: 13 Shot, 2 Dead in 6 hours Thursday Night, as Crime Continues to Fall!

13 shot, 2 dead in Chicago in six hours Thursday night

Chicago Tribune

At least two people were killed and 11 others wounded in violence across Chicago overnight, most of the victims from just two shootings on the West and South sides, according to police.

Suspects were being questioned in one of the shootings, the killing of a man near his home on the Far South Side, officials said.

The worst shooting occurred around 6 p.m. Thursday when two men in hooded sweatshirts opened fire inside a convenience store in the 1400 block of West 79th Street in the Gresham neighborhood, police said.
One man was killed and five others were wounded. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 24.

The gunmen fled in an SUV and police continued searching for them this morning.

About four hours later, four people were standing in a parking lot in the 4100 block of West Roosevelt Road when a black car drove up and gunfire rang out.

A 29-year-old man was shot in the arm, a second man the same age was shot in the leg, a 27-year-old man was shot in the leg and a 36-year-old man was shot in the thigh, police said. They were all taken by a friend to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

The gunman's car fled west on Roosevelt Road and north on Keeler Avenue, police said.

Other shootings:

-- A 31-year-old man was shot and killed across the street from his home on 113th Place between State Street and South Michigan Avenue, police said. David Gulley, 31, was pronounced dead at Roseland Community Hospital about 5:10 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office said.

Calumet District officers saw the shooting and brought several people in for questioning, police said. Up to three guns were recovered, police said. The people were still being questioned as of 5 a.m. today, police said.

-- A 24-year-old man was shot in the buttocks in the 11800 block of South Ashland Avenue about 5 p.m. on the Far South Side, police said. He was walking down the street when two people approached on foot and opened fire, police said.

He was stable Advocate Christ Medical Center, police said. No one was in custody this morning.

-- About 10:15 p.m., a man in his 30s was shot in the leg in the 13100 block of South Ellis Avenue. He was taken to Metro South Medical Center in Blue Island, police said.

The man told police he heard shots and felt pain.

Remorseless, Racist Stone Killer Shawn Tyson Gets “Life” for Hate Crime Murders of 2 British “Crackers” in Sarasota, FL; Vics Don’t Look Like Obama,

By David in TN and Nicholas Stix

Shawn Tyson was convicted yesterday of killing two British tourists in Florida. Tyson was given a sentence of “life” (until parole). His father maintains his son is innocent.

Although Paul Davis, a friend of the victims who attended the trial, told the killer, "The stupid thing about what you've done is that you've ended your own life," Davis' statement was both irrelevant--who cares about Tyson's life?--and probably false. At the nation's present rate of moral and economic collapse, Tyson will probably be paroled in 20 years... or less.

Shawn Tyson, 17, gets life for killing Brits
March 29, 2012, 5:03 a.m.
AP/CBS News

(AP) SARASOTA, Fla. - A Florida teenager received a life sentence Wednesday after a jury convicted him of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two young British tourists last April, a case that generated blaring tabloid headlines in the U.K. press.

Shawn Tyson, 17, sat stone-faced as the jury's verdict was read and as two friends of the victims spoke angrily about the crime. When Judge Rick De Furia asked Tyson if he wanted to say anything before being sentenced, Tyson mumbled, "No."

The verdict came after two hours of deliberations and the sentencing about an hour after the verdict. Because he is under 18, Tyson is ineligible for the death penalty and is facing a mandatory life sentence.

During the trial, witnesses testified that Tyson shot James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, last April 16. The two men were vacationing in Sarasota and spent an evening drinking when they got lost and walked into a housing project where Tyson lived. Details of their deaths have gripped the British news media. Tabloids there have written stories saying the men were "slaughtered" in a Florida "ghetto."

In a statement, the families of Cooper and Kouzaris accused Tyson of being "evil," saying that they had been given "a life sentence when our sons were so brutally and needlessly taken from us. Ours is a life sentence, with no chance of parole from a broken heart, and a shattered soul."

Joe Hallett, a friend of the victims who sat through the entire trial, said the pair befriended people from different walks of life and would have tried that with Tyson, as well.

"I have to try to make you understand the pain you brought to so many people," Hallett said to Tyson. "It was through your deadly action that you've taken us all on a journey to hell. Every night before you go to sleep, every morning you wake up, I want you to think of my friends who were murdered."

During a news conference in front of the courthouse following the verdict, Hallett praised Sarasota police and municipal officials. But he criticized the U.S. government for what he said was its failure to send condolences to the victims' families.

A prosecutor also read a statement from Cooper's parents and played a video at the request of his parents. The video, which portrayed the young man from the time he was born, was also played at his funeral.

Kouzaris was from Northampton and Cooper was from Hampton Lucy, Warwick. Both were considered fun-loving world travelers by friends — but also smart and cautious. Authorities said both were drunk when they got lost and wandered just before 3 a.m. into the housing project where Tyson lived.

Witnesses testified that Tyson told them he saw two "crackers" — his phrase for white people — walking through the neighborhood and that he intended to rob them. The tourists said they didn't have any money and begged Tyson to let them go home. The men also told Tyson that they were lost.

"Since you ain't got no money, then I have something for your ass," Tyson recounted to a witness, then added that he shot the men several times.

The tourists' bodies were found shirtless on the street and their baggy pants were pulled down to their thighs. Both men still had their wallets and did in fact have money; Cooper also had a cellphone and camera in his pants pocket. Authorities later found that Kouzaris' blood alcohol level was 0.243 and Cooper's was 0.214 — well past Florida's legal limit for intoxication when driving, which is 0.08.

During closing arguments, Assistant State Attorney Ed Brodsky told the jury that the case was about "opportunities."

"For James Cooper and James Kouzaris, they had seized an opportunity to travel abroad," Brodsky said. "Shawn Tyson seized upon an opportunity to rob and kill two men."

In the end, Tyson was his own undoing. Several prosecution witnesses said Tyson told friends about the shootings in the hours after the killings, then asked friends to hide the murder weapon and bury bullets. A DNA expert said Tyson's skin cells were found on Cooper's jeans.

Tyson maintained to police that he was at home during the murders. But witnesses spotted him crawling into his window shortly after hearing gunshots.

 

A less elegant but more characteristic shot of Tyson from his trial. He was only 16 when he murdered James Kouzaris and James Cooper.
 

Tyson did not testify. His attorneys called only one witness, a crime scene technician, and questioned him briefly. Defense attorneys also tried to discredit the witnesses by saying many of them had criminal records and cooperated with detectives to avoid jail time.

The defense also said no one saw Tyson shoot Cooper and Kouzaris.

Authorities say Tyson wasn't alone the night of the shooting; police have not
charged the second suspect because they don't have enough evidence. That person is currently in prison on unrelated charges.

Paul Davis, another friend of the men who attended the trial, had another message for Tyson.

"You might think that being a man is about carrying a gun, but it isn't," Davis said.

"The stupid thing about what you've done is that you've ended your own life."

Herald Interview

 
Trayvon Martin: Did he have a license to kill?
 

George Zimmerman: Did he have a duty to die?
 
Posted by Nicholas Stix

Robert Zimmerman: “I’m sorry for the all hate going around, from their attorneys… I never foresaw so much hate coming from the President, the Congressional Black Caucus, the NAACP… It’s really unbelievable.”
 



Hatemonger: Benjamin Crump, lead liar, er, lawyer, for Trayvon Martin's parents, at his March 21 press conference. Crump has spewed lie after lie after lie, sometimes accidentally exposing his own lies, while denying the most elementary facts of the case, such as the wounds that Trayvon Martin inflicted on George Zimmerman, and which police observed and recorded at the time. Shades of the Central Park Jogger case, and the Jena Hoax, when Crump’s mentor, Al Sharpton, scoffed at the wounds of the victims, both of whom he mocked. Crump had three weeks to coach Trayvon Martin’s secret “girlfriend” on what to say in her secret “interview,” which Crump ran, with ABC “News’” connivance, and which was then given to the public in third-hand, hearsay snippets.

 


Hatemongers: False eyewitnesses Mary Cutcher, l, and her friend Selma Mora Lamilla, on March 20, 2012. Once Benjamin Crump, Al Sharpton, and Daralene Jones got involved, Cutcher reversed her initial, pro-Zimmerman police report, and gave a highly colored rendition of what had occurred on February 26, increasingly trying to portray herself as an eyewitness, when her (revised) words show that she saw nothing until after the shooting was over. In language suspiciously evocative of Benjamin Crump’s hoax script, she repeatedly refers to 6’3” Trayvon Martin as “the little boy,” claims that Zimmerman hulked over the six-inch taller Martin, denies that there could have been any struggle, prior to Zimmerman’s shooting of Martin, and asserts that the call for help she heard had to have been from Martin (“the little boy”). Lamilla was a latecomer to the party, and thus harder to figure. At first, Cutcher says she gave police a report on the incident on Lamilla’s behalf, but it’s hard to believe police would accept a hearsay report from anyone, unless it was of a dying declaration.
 



Hatemonger: WFTV "reporter" Daralene Jones is president of the racist, segregationist, Central Florida Association of Black Journalists. Jones put the hoax script in play on or before March 13, when she also began describing George Zimmerman as a “vigilante,” and has not let up since.
 



Hatemonger: Hoax/lynch mob leader Al Sharpton, l, with his protégé, Tawana Brawley (who now calls herself Maryam Muhammad), circa 1988. Sharpton has the blood of so many on his hands, but his bloodlust will never be sated. He took over leading the hoax, at Benjamin Crump’s request.

 


Hatemonger: Mikhail Muhammad, of the Nation of Islam's New Black Panther Party division, who has called for the murder of George Zimmerman, and who has offered a $10,000 bounty to anyone who would kidnap him.
 



Hatemonger allies: NBPP leader Malik Zulu Shabazz and “Barack Obama” sharing a stage in 2007, during the latter's presidential campaign.
 



Hatemongers: The NOI’s NBPP handed out the above flyer at its March 22, 2012 press conference on the steps of City Hall, in Sanford, Florida. Neither “Obama” nor his AG, Eric Holder, has said anything about the savagery, racism, or illegality of the attempt by Obama’s ally, Malik Zulu Shabazz’ attempt to incite racist murder against George Zimmerman.
 



Hatemonger: Black supremacist propagandist Spike Lee tried to get George Zimmerman murdered, by tweeting what he thought was the latter’s address, but sent out the wrong address, thus jeopardizing the lives of an elderly couple.
 



Hatemonger: Bobby Rush is a Black Panther. During the 1960s, the racist terrorist group specialized in assassinating white policemen. Rush is also a member of the racist, segregationist Congressional Black Caucus, which supports black racial terror today.
 



Hatemonger: Mikhail Muhammad, of the murderous Nation of Islam’s New Black Panther Party division, offering a $10,000 bounty on George Zimmerman’s head.
 



Hatemongers: Trayvon Martin’s parents, Tracy Martin, left, and Sybrina Fulton. He can’t keep his lies straight, while she knows exactly what she wants: Money, money, money! (Of course, she denies this, but the only reason anyone trademarks anything, is to make money off it.) (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)

George Zimmerman’s dad: Trayvon Martin threatened to kill my son
By Frances Robles
frobles@MiamiHerald.com
The Miami Herald

“I guess everybody would have preferred George be beaten to death,” Robert Zimmerman tells a local TV station.

 

Thanks to ObamaBC

Sanford, FL -- Trayvon Martin threatened to kill George Zimmerman the moments before the neighborhood watch captain took out a handgun and shot him, Zimmerman’s father told a local television station.

Speaking out for the first time, Robert Zimmerman gave an interview to the Orlando Fox affiliate, telling the station that his son had no choice but to kill Trayvon or risk being beaten to death.

“Things were not going to go well. One of them was not going to walk away,” he said. “I hope at one point everyone will go beyond the hate. At some point when all this settles, they’ll say, ‘George Zimmerman is a pretty nice guy.”

George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Feb. 26 in a case that has triggered protests nationwide. The college criminal justice student was not charged, leading attorneys to believe that police and prosecutors conspired to protect him.

Robert Zimmerman, a retired Virginia magistrate, said the family is in hiding and can’t go to the doctor or do anything that requires using their own names.

He said his son had just made dinner for his wife and was heading to Target the night of the NBA All Star game when he spotted Trayvon, who he didn’t recognize as a resident. He thought Trayvon looked suspicious, because there had been a rash of break-ins, and instead of walking on a main sidewalk, Trayvon was walking in a paved path that goes behind two sets of townhouses.

George Zimmerman called police, and started “walking in the same general direction to see where the individual was going,” and get an address for police.

At one point, he said, Trayvon approached him saying, ‘Do you have an f-ing problem?’ George replied no and reached for his cell phone.

Trayvon “punched him in the nose, his nose was broken, and he was knocked to the concrete.” Robert Zimmerman said. “It’s my understanding Trayvon Martin got on top of him and just started beating him in the face, in his nose, hitting his head on the concrete.”

“After nearly a minute of being beaten,” Robert Zimmerman said George tried – with Trayvon still on top of him – to move away from the concrete onto the grass. In doing so, the gun he kept in a holster on his waist was exposed.

“Trayvon Martin said something to the effect of ‘you’re going to die now’ or you’re gonna die tonight’ -- something to that effect,” he said. “He continued to beat George. At some point, George pulled his pistol and did what he did.”

In other points, he said:

• He insisted that it’s George heard screaming in the 911 video.
• He believes that the girl who claims she was on the phone with Trayon in the minutes that led up to the encounter is not telling the truth.
• George had a broken nose and two cuts on his scalp.
• He had not seen the police department surveillance video showing Zimmerman some time after the incident, in which he does not appear to have any injuries. Maybe he was cleaned up by then, he said.

“He’s not dealing with it well. I don’t know if the injuries are physical or mental. He’s not in good shape,” Robert Zimmerman said.

Asked if he had a message for Trayvon’s family, he said: “I’m sorry for all of the hate -- from the attorneys, from everyone involved. They’re making up things that are not true about George. How he’s being portrayed is an absolute lie.”

 


The John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama”: He has no sympathy for people who don’t look like him.

Heather MacDonald Goes Halfway on the Trayvon Martin Case, Race, and the Media

 
Trayvon Martin: Racial profiling is a two-way street

 
George Zimmerman: Like Trayvon Martin, he was profiling, and being profiled
 

By David in TN and Nicholas Stix

Here Heather MacDonald criticizes the media and race hustlers for not being interested in black homicide victims. As I (David in TN) wrote a while back, the MSM doesn't want to cover black victims because they would have to show the perps, who are almost all black.

 

Heather Mac Donald

 
Mac Donald’s sparring partner, Cable TV executive Evan Shapiro (AMC’s IFC channel)
 
For roughly 20 years, the neoconservative script has been to criticize affirmative action for the “harm” if supposedly causes black recipients (“stigma”), whereas said recipients are laughing all the way to the bank, while the real victims of AA are white, heterosexual men. I think this slant is because the older neoconservatives made it, and burned their bridges behind them, while the bratpackers who succeeded them have known nothing but nepotistic privilege.

When neocons now deal with crime and race, which is with ever less frequency, it is to bemoan the black victims of black crime, and ignore the white victims. Neocons also tend to promote the howler, whereby blacks are the biggest victims of black crime.

In fact, since at least 1987, whites have been the biggest victims of black crime. And that’s just according to official crime counts, which show whites as typically constituting the plurality (e.g., 45-43 percent) of the victims of black criminals, when in reality, whites constitute the absolute majority.

The Media and Black Homicide Victims

National Review (“The Corner”)
Comments

Cable mogul Evan Shapiro had a stunningly clueless Trayvon Martin entry on Huffington Post yesterday asking: Why doesn’t the media cover more black crime victims?

Shapiro, the president of indie cable broadcaster IFC, should pose the same question to Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and every member of the black protest establishment: Why don’t you protest more black crime victims? The answer would be the same in all cases: Because the only black victims who interest the race industry and its mainstream media handmaidens are blacks who have been killed by “white” civilians, including honorary whites like Martin’s killer George Zimmerman, or blacks who have been killed or offended by the police (black officers will do here in a pinch).

Unfortunately, there are very few such victims. Ninety-three percent of all black homicide casualties from 1980 to 2008 were killed by other blacks, and are thus of no interest whatsoever to today’s race advocates, because they fail to support the crucial story line that blacks remain under siege by a racist white power structure.

The coverage of New York City’s West Indian Day Parade in September 2011 exemplifies this rule. The New York Times and other local outlets spilled an enormous amount of ink on an altercation between a black city councilman, Jumaane Williams, and the New York Police Department. Williams had tried to cross a police line, and, when he was not allowed to pass, got into a scuffle with some officers. He was then handcuffed and held until the police verified his identity. The city’s Public Advocate, a New York State Assemblyman, and Williams charged the police with racism, claiming that the treatment of Williams exemplified the “siege mentality” with which the police treat black men in New York City. To this day, the Williams detention is regularly mentioned by the New York Times in its constant coverage of the alleged racism of the NYPD.

What else happened on that parade day in 2011? A black-on-black bloodbath:

In the pre-dawn celebrations known as J’ouvert that open the parade, one man was fatally shot, crowds were sprayed with gunfire, and several people were stabbed. A shooting at a McDonald’s at 6 am triggered a stampede. The police repeatedly had to break up mobs that formed after gunfire. . . .

Later that day, a shootout near the parade route killed its intended victim as well as a 55-year-old mother who had been standing nearby; the two police officers who responded to the murders were also shot. Police also arrested someone in the vicinity of the parade who shot off several rounds without hitting anyone. The day’s violence would have likely been even worse had officers not removed 15 guns from spectators; each of those potentially life-saving stops would undoubtedly be condemned as racial profiling by the ACLU and its backers in the City Council and in Albany.

Previous West Indian Day Parades were hardly more pacific; the violence includes a man shot in the leg in 2007; another leg shooting and a stabbing in 2006; a man shot to death in 2005; and in 2003, a stabbing in the neck and someone who, from his perch on a parade float, shot into a group of spectators and killed one of them.

None of this violence was given the intense and loving press treatment accorded to the detention of Jumaane Williams. In fact, it was barely mentioned at all, even though, arguably, it is more serious to be shot dead than to be briefly detained by the police. Nothing prevented Al Sharpton from protesting the killings and stabbings that day. However, only Councilman Williams falls into the favored category of, in this case, black victim offended by the police, and so his detention was the only event that day worth noting.

“New York City Council members Jumaane Williams, second left, and Ydanis Rodriguez, center, join Occupy Wall Street protesters to denounce what they say is the NYPD's excessive use of force against demonstrators, in New York's Zuccotti Park, Monday, March 19, 2012. Police arrested 73 people on Saturday after hundreds of activists had gathered to mark the sixth-month birthday of the movement. Photo: Richard Drew / AP” [Seattle Post-Intelligencer] The real deal: Jumaane Williams is one of the most racist councilmen in New York City, which is quite the dubious honor. And since cops are forced to constantly arrest black criminals, he is also one of New York’s most anti-cop councilmen. On Labor Day weekend, following the West Indian Day Parade, which saw two murders, two shot cops, and much additional gunfire, all by blacks, Williams went out of his to seek out a confrontation with the NYPD, by defying the orders of a senior police official, and getting himself arrested.
 

On Halloween 2010, five-year-old Aaron Shannon Jr. was playing in his family’s backyard in his Spiderman costume in South Central Los Angeles. Two gangbangers from the Kitchen Crips, seeking to avenge a previous gang shooting, shot randomly towards some houses and killed Shannon, also wounding the boy’s grandfather and uncle. Sharpton, Inc., was perfectly free to make the names of Shannon’s killers, Leonard Hall Jr., 21, and Marcus Denson, 18, as infamous as that of George Zimmerman. But the race baiters never showed up. The killing aroused not the slightest interest from them because it was useless in aiding the white racism conceit. And so no one outside Shannon’s immediate circle remembers today who Hall and Denson are, even though Shannon was at least as innocent as Trayvon Martin (whose image as combined Eagle Scout-St. Francis of Assisi has in any case come under some stress of late, information, that, if true, is not irrelevant to assessing Zimmerman’s self-defense claim.) 

We know the names of virtually every unarmed black civilian shot by the New York Police Department in recent years — Amadou Diallo, Patrick Dorismond, Sean Bell — as well we should. To the extent that botched police tactics or training contributed to these tragic killings, the incidents are rightly publicized so that they can be prevented from reoccurring. Here’s the difference between these killings — they are a tiny handful — and the routine black-on-black killings that occur by the dozen every day across the country. The officers who mistakenly shot their victims thinking they were facing a deadly threat set out that morning to protect people, often in minority neighborhoods, not to injure anyone. A significant number of black-on-black shootings, however, like many shootings among all races, are done in cold blood.

Deposed chief race hoaxer and head Negro in charge, Jesse Jackson Sr., visiting his MSM benefactors at AP March 23. The old racist crook can still make mischief.

Here’s another difference between police killings of blacks, white-on-black killings, and black-on-black killings: Sheer numbers. There were nine civilian victims of police gunfire last year in New York City; there were several hundred black homicide victims in the city, almost all shot by other blacks or Hispanics, none of them given substantial press coverage. Nationwide, in 2005, there were 2,646 black victims of other blacks, compared to 349 black victims of whites or Hispanics. The relative rates of interracial killings are wildly skewed towards black on white killings: There were two and a half times as many white and Hispanic victims of civilian black killers in 2009 as there were black victims of civilian white and Hispanic killers, even though the black population is one-sixth that of whites and Hispanics combined. Yet to read columnists such as the Times’s Charles Blow or to listen to the professional racial extortionists, it is the police and whites who are the biggest threat to blacks, not other blacks.

A further prudential reason why the routine black gangbanger victim gets so little coverage: He is not particularly appealing. Though he had the misfortune of being the victim that day, he could just as easily have been the perpetrator the next day. That is true of many white-on-white homicides as well.

Shapiro, of course, has another explanation for the absence of coverage of most black crime victims: The media is too white, especially in its upper ranks. The “stunning under-representation of minorities at the TOP of our national and local news organizations creates an institutional lack of empathy for minority victims of violent crime,” he writes. Has he noticed that Trayvon Martin is not exactly being ignored? As soon as the media got wind of the story, it ran with it. When Amadou Diallo was shot by four NYPD officers in 1999, the New York Times ran three and a half articles a day on the incident for several months.

If Sharpton protested outside the jail cell of the routine robber or gunman in East New York with as much zeal as he devotes to allegedly racist whites or to the police, if he ever stigmatized black killers of blacks, the phony problem of “racial profiling” might go away, since it is merely an epiphenomenon of black crime. Protesting or covering black crime, however, would require bringing out some uncomfortable truths, such as the fact that the homicide rate among black males of the ages of 14 to 24 is nearly ten times that of white and Hispanic young males combined. Evan Shapiro mentions the elevated rates of black homicide victimization but somehow neglects to include the black homicide commission rate. His column flawlessly exemplifies the ignorance of the Hollywood elites regarding today’s racial realities.
