Youth or Consequences
Today's parents always blame the authorities first.
Probably not what Dr. Martin Luther King meant when he spoke of being "free at last."*****
Last week, a judge in St. Louis released seven middle school students after the key witness failed to show up for a hearing. The juveniles were accused of beating a local man almost to death. What had the poor man done to deserve such a thrashing? Not a thing. He was simply walking home from the grocery store. The attack, it turned out, was part of a popular craze our local youth call the knockout game, though it is anything but a game. One elderly man has already died from a similar assault.
After the dismissal, the teens celebrated outside the courtroom, high-fiving one another.
Police had arrested the young thugs after they bragged about the beatings on a Facebook page. Evidently, the teens believed society could do nothing to them, even if they crowed publicly about their exploits. It turns out they were right.
One of the teens agreed to testify. However, the witness, a 13-year old girl, soon had second thoughts, no doubt after her life was threatened. The news seemed to re-enforce the notion (already prevalent among county residents) that St. Louis city is little more than a petri dish from hell, a holding pen for the region's most violent, a real-life "Escape from New York," the sci-fi movie in which the city has been turned into a giant maximum security prison without guards. (Ironically, director John Carpenter's film was shot, not in New York, but in St. Louis.)

Man charged in Independence mall shooting - Kansas City Missouri
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - Charges were filed Wednesday in the shooting of two teenagers last weekend at Independence Center.
Eric Bratton, 24, of Kansas City, Mo., was charged with two counts each of first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
The popular shopping mall was locked down just before 5 p.m. Saturday after the shooting while authorities rushed to the area near Sears and Forever 21.
According to court documents, Bratton and the male victim got into a fight outside the mall after Bratton made a comment about the female victim’s buttocks.

A second unidentified person with Bratton pulled the two apart and the male victim thought it was all over, the documents said.
But according to the victim, Bratton followed him and his companion into the mall, urging him to “go outside” and “finish this.”
Bratton eventually pulled a semi-automatic handgun and shot both teenagers, prosecutors said. The male was shot in the thigh and the girl in the foot. They both sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were treated and released from an area hospital.
Yes you white parents suck ass too!

Want proof that some white people are equally as out of touch and ignorant asses too.
White criminals are the most likely to get the death penalty
Recently the media has revived the lie that black criminals are more likely to get the death penalty. Even GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul has repeated this lie at two of the GOP debates.
Here are the facts:
Between 1975-2005, blacks committed 53% of all felony murders and 56% manslaughters. Black averaged 12% of the US population during this time period. Source: US DOJ, Bureau of Justice Statistics.
Here is a link to the most recent statistics of the application of the death penalty from the US DOJ, Bureau of Justice Statistics. The DOJ breaks it down into three racial categories. Black, Whites & Hispanics, and Asians & American Indians.
Only 41.5% of the inmates on death row are black. This means black murderers are substantially less likely to get the death penalty for murder.
Of the whopping 46 death row inmates executed in 2010 (out of 3,173), only 13 were black. This means only 28% of the death row inmates executed were black.
Fact: Blacks convicted of murder are significantly less likely to be sentenced to death than white murderers. Black inmates on death row are significantly less likely to actually be put to death than white inmates on death row.
The one people discrimination against by the judicial system is white people.
Pair Busted For Flaming Tampon Attack On Car - The Smoking Gun
Armed with flaming tampons--yes, flaming tampons--two young Pennsylvanians attempted to blow up a vehicle after severely vandalizing it, according to police.The bizarre January 7 incident outside a bar in Metal Township resulted in the arrest of Patricia Deshong, 25, and Quentin Deshong, 22, on a variety of charges, including attempted arson, public drunkenness, and criminal mischief.Racist or realistic? Fears Microsoft 'Avoid the Ghetto' app will damage economies of poor communities
According to State Police troopers, the Deshongs seriously damaged a 2006 Ford Fusion, which had its windshield and windows either cracked or broken, was covered with dents, and had blood on the front passenger seat. The car’s hood was also open and various hoses had been disconnected.
Want to avoid the ghetto? There's an app for that. A Smartphone app to help people avoid unsafe neighborhoods has been accused of discrimination. The application, which is being developed by Microsoft, has already been nicknamed the 'Avoid The Ghetto' app.********
But critics fears the app could damage local economies and steer tourists away from historically significant neighbourhoods- just because they have a high crime rate. Sarah E. Chinn, author of 'Technology and the Logic of American Racism,' told AOL the app is 'pretty appalling.' 'Of course, an application like this defines crime pretty narrowly, since all crimes happen in all kinds of neighborhoods.' 'I can't imagine that there aren't perpetrators of domestic violence, petty and insignificant drug possession, fraud, theft, and rape in every area.' Opponents fear the data-operated app could damage minority communities and hinder economic development in the areas most in need of it. Dallas National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President Juanita Wallace told CBS: 'I’m going to be up in arms about it if it happens.'
Dallas NAACP Angry About Avoid Ghetto App
The NAACP is angry (link)********
Well I predicted this would happen. Yesterday the NAACP in Dallas decided that they were angry about the app referred to as the “Avoid The Ghetto” app. Microsoft has developed the tool to help drivers and pedestrians avoid unsafe neighborhoods. According to CBS DFW,
“I’m going to be up in arms about it if it happens,” said Dallas NAACP President Juanita Wallace.Here is yet another example of the NAACP being way off base. Instead of being upset that a neighborhood is actually ghetto and has a high crime rate, they get upset that someone has called them out on it. Instead of actually doing something to better the neighborhood, they cry racism.
Wallace spent her afternoon at a rally on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and said she felt safe there, but fears the app may project otherwise.
“Can you imagine me not being able to go to MLK Blvd. because my GPS says that’s a dangerous crime area? I can’t even imagine that,” she said.
Microsoft says the app will use crime statistics to determine what parts of town are to be avoided. But it’s unclear where the data will come from and how it will be interpreted.
Microsoft has filed a patent for the app, but the actual product is unnamed and not available yet.
Opponents like Wallace fear it could hurt minority communities.
“It’s almost like gerrymandering,” she said. “It’s stereotyping for sure and without a doubt; I can’t emphasize enough, it’s discriminatory.”
Microsoft Taking Heat for 'Avoid Ghetto' App - The Root
Microsoft Corp. is garnering criticism for a patent it filed for an "Avoid Ghetto" GPS app. The app, which links up with your GPS or smartphone, immediately notifies you when you are nearing a neighborhood with high crime statistics.For example, if you are driving through a safe neighborhood (statistically speaking) of Brooklyn, N.Y., and are nearing Brownsville, the app will most likely alert you. The same applies if you are driving somewhere near Southeast D.C.C’mon white people have y’all gotten that fucking lazy? You mean to tell me you people have gotten that fucking dumb that common sense is vacated so much that when you are driving and you see block after block of abandoned or boarded up buildings with darkies on the corner drinking 40’s with pants sagging that the little light bulb does not flicker even a little bit to tell you this is not where the country club is located… The only reason for a white person to be driving in the hood is a criminal reason like some rich white dude buying drugs or to pick up his ghetto trick. You don’t wonder into the hood indiscriminately Look folks if I’m driving and see a bunch of tin can trailer dwellings with old beat up pick-up trucks with gun racks in em I’m know I’m in honkey town. I’m not going into a drinking establishment with a Confederate flag proudly displayed over the bar. Technology continues to make people just fucking stupid, it is amazing. Oh and for the NAACP I don’t care that they are bitching about this because they are a woefully irrelevant and meaningless organization any fucking way. They don’t give a shit about the social welfare of black people because black folks have been shooting, killing, robbing, raping HIVing and drugging one another forever and it is getting worse and they are not outraged about that so fuck em!
The app has its share of critics, including Tammy Chin, author of Technology and the Logic of American Racism, who told AOL that the app could be considered racist. "It's pretty appalling. Of course, an application like this defines crime pretty narrowly, since all crimes happen in all kinds of neighborhoods. I can't imagine that there aren't perpetrators of domestic violence, petty and insignificant drug possession, fraud, theft and rape in every area."
Obama’s Racial Politics: Barack Obama’s most disturbing legacy.
ABC News Plans Explosive Interview With Newt's Second WifeWalter Williams talks about Barack Obama’s characterization of "you're-on-your-own economics."There’s been a lot of talk of Mitt Romney’s tax returns. Here’s a look at the effective tax rates of the rich. By the way, this is a prime example of how the ObamaMedia will cover this storyA signature aspect of Barack Obama’s financial reform bill, Dodd-Frank, has become too costly and complex to enforce.Michelle Malkin’s latest column is about the Democrats deciding to hold Obama’s nomination acceptance speech at Bank of America stadium.Tax cheat Tim Geithner is going to start dipping into federal pension funds in order to give the Obama administration more credit to pay government bills.Rev. Joseph Lowery says that “racism” is to blame for Obama’s problems.
Look we all know the media wants to fuck with Newt because he keep bitch slapping media members in debates so they want to fuck him in any way they can by airing this interview with his ex-wife. Folks let me be clear about half of the cars you will drive by on the road there sit an individual in a fucked up marriage or relationship. Regardless of race or class or educational background, or religious affiliation (maybe except for Mormons, because Mormon men marry their fuck buddies) someone is fucking around on someone else. Some dude today will either reveal or will be caught fucking around on someone they claimed they loved. Shortly after that scorned woman will do whatever is necessary to make that dudes life a living fucking hell. My ex did it to me, tried to fuck me around in any way she could and although she would not admit it still hates my ass. I tried to extend the olive branch to her but hey I’m the evil lying guy who screwed her over. If I were to run for higher office I’m certain she would try to fuck me over even today. Now I will say the dissolution of our marriage was mostly my fault, I was not some cheating bastard as she may claim but I knew something was not right with me and my life but I’m human with a shit load of failings and flaws but at my core I’m a pretty decent guy. What is funny about the media trying to use Newts marriage failures against him is men AND women are grimacing at the revelations because anyone watching the train wreck is likely going through the same thing. Broken marriages and lack of love and understanding lead to a broken and fucked up society unfortunately with kids in the middle. A shitty marriage and relationship is just one small part of an unraveling human dynamic and there is nothing shocking about that. Bill Clinton likely fucked around on Hillary from day one, but just as most marriages the only reason they chose to stay together was out of sheer convenience. Most people stay married because of the kids, or finances or both. Two strangers sharing a dwelling making each other miserable and not giving a fuck about one another except for surface shit so what do they do? He does his thing and she does hers, happiness being a relatively new term is not even in the equation. My marriage departure while selfish was absolutely necessary because although I would have been better off financially because she made good money unless I addressed my own demons I would have only made her life worse. Divorce although fucked up sometimes is absolutely necessary to allow the other person to escape a life of complete and utter mental hell and to allow for personal and emotional growth and to pretend otherwise if just stupid and no amount of prayer or counseling can fix that. Marriages fail because frankly most people marry for completely the wrong reasons and once you cross a certain threshold in the relationship you say aw screw it I’ll give it a try. While single I am able to address issues I would have never been able to address staying in a circumstance where my psyche slowly deteriorated. I married twice for completely the wrong reasons and frankly it was completely unfair to both wives. Having said all of that… do I give a fuck about what happened between Newt and his wife hell no! I don’t give a shit… not even a little bit. All I want is a competent president, is Newt that I’m not sure but the actions of the media towards those on the right are becoming more appalling each day. Human failings are not a Democrat or Republican issue it is a human issue. Having the media exploit this personal shit this way is just more proof that our anemic society continues to circle the drain and an alarming rate with today’s media being complicit in the demise. Have a wonderful day!
