Black Career Criminal Helps Destroy Life of Diligent, White Policemen for Simply Doing His Job: A Story for Our Times
Re-posted by Nicholas Stix
Among whites, a successful business career is a typical launching pad for a political career. Among blacks conversely, it is increasingly the case that a career as a criminal is the launching pad for a political career.
The trick that black criminals who become “activists” latch onto is to incite other blacks into committing crimes on their behalf.
Dallas activist with history of run-ins with the law takes center stage in McKinney

[The caption above is garbage. I’m not aware that Corporal Eric Casebolt shoved the black girl’s “face into the ground,” but he would have been perfectly justified in doing so, in any event. The girl had repeatedly refused to follow his lawful orders. She was part of a mob of racist black kids, most of whom had trespassed on a private party, had assaulted security and adults, vandalized property, and repeatedly defied lawful authority. The deliberately misleading caption acts as if the political pressure exerted by the thugs’ supporters were an expression of moral right. Given that social media is dominated by social justice warriors, the mobilization of “collective outrage across social media” is nothing to brag about.]
Dominique Alexander demanded justice after a Grapevine officer shot an unarmed man earlier this year. He decried an unsolved murder of a pregnant Dallas woman. He has led numerous protests, including picketing outside the home of a University of Oklahoma fraternity member who helped lead a racist chant.
And now the 26-year-old has moved himself to the forefront of another highly charged racial incident — as a leader of protests over a McKinney police officer’s well-publicized handling of a teenage girl.
But authorities say Alexander is the same person who has caused a 2-year-old child severe bodily injury, forged a check, led police on a high-speed chase, falsely claimed that car was stolen, and stolen a car himself.
Alexander, who plans to lead a protest tonight in McKinney, said he is far from the first political or social leader to have a criminal history. He invoked the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., and Malcolm X and former President George W. Bush, noting that they all had run-ins with the law.
[I wouldn’t hold up any of the aforementioned men as heroic models. Ted Kennedy was a killer and a traitor. Malcolm X was, in George S. Schuyler’s words, “a pixilated criminal,” a prostitute, pimp, arsonist and black supremacist. I don’t know of any “run-ins with the law” that George W. Bush had—Alexander can’t possibly be referring to Bush’s one DWI—and Bush was also a traitor.]
“It’s not like I’m the first person who has been a leader who has had a troubled past,” Alexander said. “It’s not where you come from. It’s where you’re going.”
Alexander is the founder of the Next Generation Action Network, a group he says he wants to take national and give young people a platform for peacefully pushing for reform. He says he has no political ambitions right now — despite briefly considering a City Council run — but added that life can change quickly.
His official biography on the group’s website states that he “has been labeled as The New Era Civil Rights Father by CBS.” But that’s not true. The local CBS affiliate, KTVT-TV (Channel 11), called him a new father, because he literally had fathered a child, in a story about a “new civil rights era.” He said the language was copied and pasted, but here is what the story says:
Once upon a time, 25-year-old Dominique Alexander of Dallas considered ‘civil rights’ a collection of grainy, black and white images of our nation’s past. But now, the new father says the crisis of police brutality and the deaths of unarmed citizens at the hands of those sworn to protect them, is ushering in a new civil rights era: and this one will be played out in color.
Alexander is no stranger to media coverage. He has often appeared on local news stations and been quoted in The Dallas Morning News.
On Sunday, Alexander told The News after the McKinney pool party incident that no male officer “should ever touch a young girl, half-naked, 95 pounds, and slam her.” He called for the McKinney Police Department to fire the officer.
[Apparently, the girl lost 15 pounds overnight. The day before, her thug supporters claimed that she weighed “110 pounds.”
What rules does this career criminal propose for when a policeman can “touch a young girl”? He’s full of it. What he really means is that no white policeman may enforce the law against black females. And if she was “half-naked,” Corporal Casebolt should have arrested her for indecent exposure.]
Running from the law
Alexander described himself Monday as “a peaceful person” who isn’t radical in his means.
But in 2009, Alexander was charged with shaking a 2-year-old baby who was left alone with him. He initially claimed that the child had fallen asleep and then fallen off a couch. But doctors said the injuries were not consistent with an 18-inch fall.
Alexander said Monday that the child was actually injured in a bounce house and that he found him when the effects started to become clear. He still denies injuring the child, but pleaded guilty.
He said he was “blackballed” into pleading guilty to the charges and agreeing to probation.
“Because I was a young black brother and couldn’t afford a proper attorney, I couldn’t do anything,” he said.
[He’s just a racist liar.]
Also that year, Alexander was arrested and charged with stealing a car. He said he was in a dispute with a car lot, which reported the vehicle stolen, over payment and paperwork. The next year, he was charged with forging a check.
In 2012, Alexander was involved in a domestic disturbance with his girlfriend in Carrollton. A neighbor called the cops and reported that Alexander “has a history of anger” and was grabbing the girl as she walked away from him, police said.
Alexander’s girlfriend said she also tried to call police, but that Alexander took her phone to stop her.
Alexander said Monday that he was emotionally distressed at the time and had been drinking.
“I was under the influence,” he said. “I did some crazy, crazy things.”
Police said Alexander drove off and tried to elude police, at one point traveling up to 110 mph on Webb Chapel Road. He eventually wrecked the vehicle. Police said Alexander ran away from the wreck and later called to report the car was stolen.
They charged him with making a false police report to cover up his actions.
Alexander called the incident “a bad, bad mistake.”
The ubiquitous protester

Last year, Alexander became prominent locally after the slaying of D’Lisa Kelley. Alexander said he grew up with Kelley, whom he’d known since elementary school. While he said he hadn’t talked to her much after high school, he became the family’s spokesman of sorts. He criticized police inaction and an investigation that hasn’t led to any arrests.
Alexander also pushed a bill in the state Legislature that would create a so-called Kelley Alert — an Amber Alert for adults. The bill, filed by Rep. Toni Rose, D-Dallas, died quickly and never received a committee hearing.
Alexander said he was disappointed with Rose and will push the legislation again.
He shifted gears in the fall as incidents of alleged police brutality sparked national conversations. Alexander led some of the protests in downtown Dallas, although some of the protesters lamented their leader’s motives.
This year, he launched Next Generation Action Network. He said an IRS nonprofit exemption is pending. He also said he doesn’t draw a salary from the group and makes money as an owner of a convenience store and as a credit-card processor.
In January, Alexander filed to run for City Council. He quickly withdrew. And instead, the woman he calls his wife, Keyaira Saunders, ran for the seat. Alexander used the Facebook pages for the Next Generation Action Network and the Kelley Alert Foundation to push her campaign. She received just under 6 percent of the vote in the district, losing to Carolyn King Arnold’s 51 percent.
Alexander said Monday that Saunders was laying the groundwork for another run in the future.
He also said that he and Saunders decided that she should run and he should focus on his activism. But candidates with felonies on their record also can’t run.
In March, Alexander showed up at a Grapevine City Council meeting after an officer shot Rubén García Villalpando, 31. He said he was there at the request of the family and their lawyer. He described himself to a reporter as a family friend.

But Domingo Garcia, the attorney for Garcia Villalpando’s family, said he didn’t know Alexander until the council meeting. And Garcia said Alexander called him beforehand to tell him he would be at the meeting, not the other way around.
Later that month, Alexander led a protest outside the home of Parker Rice, a University of Oklahoma student who was seen on a video leading a racist chant. Alexander again said he agreed to do so at the behest of another person. The protest garnered national media attention, and Alexander was quoted often.
In April, he also became a spokesman for the family of Kierra Robinson, a 19-year-old Dallas woman killed in the crossfire of someone else’s dispute.
Alexander said his goal is to force accountability on public figures, such as police departments and politicians. He said he embraces his own past troubles and that people around him know about his troubles.
“You can’t rewrite your past,” he said. “But what you can do is write your future.”
