Chicago’s Ultra-Violent Racist Derrick King, Again: Prosecutors Magically Transform Felonies Attempted Robbery and Making Terroristic Threats into

“Misdemeanor Assault,” While AOL’s Huffington Post Transforms Two Violent Felony Convictions into “Accusations”

Above: Jennifer Hall and her boyfriend, Joe Hoffman, before Derrick King and Joyce Burgess entered their lives. Below: Hall, post King and Burgess. When I first saw the photograph, I assumed it was of Hoffman, since Hall had been robbed of all feminine attributes. Indeed, the identifying code I gave the picture remains, “JOE+HOFFMAN+W+STAPLES.jpg.”

[Previously, at WEJB/NSU, on Derrick King:

“Illinois Sentencing Guideline for Robbery + Assault + Attempted Murder by a Black on a White: One Year.”]

I got this story, thanks to crime blogger Nivius Vir.

The headline at AOL’s Huffington Post contained no fewer than two lies: “Derrick King, Chicago Panhandler Who Allegedly Knocked Out Woman's Teeth, Arrested Again.”

Lie #1: Derrick King is not a “panhandler,” but a robber, indeed, a convicted robber. When you demand something from a passerby, and beat her almost to death for not surrendering said item to you, that’s not “panhandling,” it’s robbery. Likewise, when you demand money from someone, and brag that you beat someone who previously failed to submit to you “real bad,” or threaten to kill him, in both cases that’s attempted robbery and making a terroristic threat.

Lie #2: King didn’t “allegedly” knock out Jennifer Hall’s teeth, he was convicted of said crime.

The story says he attacked Hall, “after she refused to give him a cigarette,” insinuating that:

1. She had a cigarette, but was too greedy to give him one; and
2. Her “refusal” to give him a smoke justified his beating her nearly to death.

Everywhere the Huffington Post’s editors inserted the words “accused” and “alleged,” regarding King, I have put the misleading terms in boldface. I have done likewise with the honest phrases, “being convicted” and “King's victim,” each of which occurs only once in the Huffington Post text.

In the Huffington Post’s deceptive caption, note that the caption editor used the word “accused,” to cover all of the known incidents involving King. Because King was convicted of his brutal attack on Hall, the editor lied, in order to suggest that King is a victim of racial profiling. Since the article states clearly that King was convicted, not merely “accused” of the attack which nearly took Jen Hall’s life, and which left her with a lifetime of misery, seizures, pain and fear, to anyone reading the article, the editor’s mischief sticks out like a sore thumb.

The beauty part is that the editor knows that the majority of drive-by-readers aren’t going to read the article! They will glance at the headline, and if they consider themselves really inquisitive, they will read the photo caption. Voila! ‘Yet another black victim, screwed over by the system. How long are we going to tolerate such racism!’

As for the authorities, Potemkin Village Policing is a collaborative task. Law enforcement must engage in “de-policing,” “disappearing” urban crime (see also here), and even outright lying, as when Chicago PD Chief Gerry McCarthy was caught covering up racist gang attacks on Chicago beaches on Memorial Day weekend.

However, the police can’t do the job alone. They need help—from racist blacks (and sometimes even from racial socialist whites sworn to harm other whites) who give fraudulent witness accounts, claiming that white crime victims were actually attackers, and from prosecutors

who undercharge violent black criminals with lower-level or too few felonies, or more often with piddling misdemeanors, which do not show up in the jurisdiction’s index crime statistics, which are what everyone is interested in.

And, of coure, the authorities need help from the media, which they get in spades.

“Derrick King, of Chicago (left), was arrested and charged Monday with misdemeanor assault after threatening a man who refused to give him money on an Uptown street. The man has previously stood accused of a bevy of other assaults and other crimes, including the 2008 beating of Jennifer Hall (right) in the city's South Loop.”

Derrick King, Chicago Panhandler Who Allegedly Knocked Out Woman's Teeth, Arrested Again

A Chicago man accused in 2008 of brutally attacking a woman and knocking out her teeth after she refused to give him a cigarette on a South Loop street was arrested Monday for threatening to kill a man in the city's Uptown neighborhood.

Derrick King, 50, of the 900 block of West Lawrence Avenue, was charged with misdemeanor assault after he allegedly followed a man from the CTA "L" station at Wilson Avenue and asked him repeatedly for money around 6:30 p.m. Monday, the Chicago Tribune reports. When the man said he did not have any, King allegedly said, "I'll kill you if you don't give me any money," according to a police report.

King, along with Joyce Burgess, was convicted of robbery in the 2008 attack of Jennifer Hall and her boyfriend near the intersection of Roosevelt and Wabash, according to ABC Chicago. He was reportedly angry that the couple did not give him a cigarette.

Since being convicted of that crime, King received an early release from prison as part of a Department of Corrections program and, according to the Tribune, threatened another woman in 2009, one day after he was released from prison. He reportedly returned to jail after a second incident but was released, again, late last year. He has been arrested for three misdemeanor charges since then.

As CBS Chicago previously reported, King was released after serving one year in Cook County Jail and two weeks in prison for the attack of Hall and her boyfriend as part of Gov. Pat Quinn's "MGT Push" -- meritorious good time -- program. Quinn later said that releasing King was a "big mistake."

Retired Chicago Police Sgt. Michael Collins, who responded to the South Loop attack in 2008, told CBS Chicago that King's attack on Hall was the “most brutal" he’d seen in 30 years. He told the station officers originally "didn't think she was going to make it" and recalled picking up each of her teeth, all of which had been kicked out of her mouth by King, from the street.

King was originally charged with attempted murder, robbery and assault but, through a plea bargain, was only convicted of two counts of robbery.

Hall later described to Tribune the experience of waking up the day after the attack – "bald -- no teeth, 85 staples in my head -- out of a drug-induced coma."

"I'm angry with everyone over this," Hall told the Tribune in late 2009. "I don't think anybody is doing their job correctly. I'm upset with every aspect of this as a whole, and I just want to move on."

King is slated to appear in court on Jan. 9 on his most recent assault charge.
