Another Gun Nut White Boy…Another Mass Shooting

White racist gun freaks like to quote numbers about “black on black” crime. It is a disingenuous argument for several reasons. In so called, black on black crime in terms of shooting, in vast majority occur within a limited geographic region of less than 10 miles form a major urban center. The suicide rate in almost  every part of the country is 3-8 times higher than the homicide rate. (see data from CDC, and Freakonomics here.)  In 2013 (the most recent year for which full data are available), 41,149 suicides were reported, of which over 70% were white males. That is a rate nearly four times higher than the country’s homicide rate, 7 times the black on black homicide rate, and 98 times the possibility of a white person being murdered by a black person. In 2010, the gun suicide rate was 6.3 per 100,000 people, compared with 3.6 per 100,000 for gun homicides. Any of my readers who are familiar with the science and engineering behind security, knows that the first thing you do in creating a security system is what is called a “Threat Analysis”. Ergo it is rather stupid to plan for a Tsunami if your house is in Kansas, but it would be real smart to plan for a tornado.

Making the “black on black” crime argument a shell game.

The second part of that is an analysis of what  is more likely to cause a danger or threat. Blank gangbangers quite simply rarely if ever shoot up groups of students on a suburban college campus. Recent studies reveal that most school shooters are White males, with 97 percent being male and 79 percent White. Over the last three decades, 90 percent of high school or elementary school shootings were the result of White, often upper-middle class, perpetrators.

So…If I were setting up security for a major University or suburban/rural college – or primary and secondary school, then my Threat Index is going to be off the charts for disaffected white boys with guns, and real low for black inner city drug dealers.

Indeed, I am going to raise red flags for guys who look just like the following…

The fact that almost nobody does, is an indication of just how deep in denial America is.

Northern Arizona University student opens fire during campus fight, kills 1, wounds 3

One Northern Arizona University student was killed and three more were wounded when a student fight ended with gunfire — rocking the nation again before an Oregon college had time to bury the victims of its own gun massacre.

Police took suspected gunman Steven Jones, an 18-year-old NAU freshman, into custody after he killed fellow student Colin Brough and wounded Nicholas Prato, Kyle Zientek and Nicholas Piring, police said.

Two separate groups of students were arguing in a parking lot next to Mountain View Hall when Jones pulled out a gun and started shooting, NAU Police Chief Greg Fowler said at a Friday morning press conference.

A glitch in the university’s emergency alert system meant only a limited number of students got the first message reporting the shooting, the school said in a statement. The entire campus got a later alert after Jones was in custody that said the campus was all clear.

Fowler said Arizona school protocol prohibits anyone from carrying a gun on campus, however, students are allowed keep weapons in locked compartments of their cars parked on campus.

The injured students’ conditions and their relationship to the gunman are unclear.

The Arizona shooting came just hours before President Obama is set to visit Roseburg, Ore., where nine people were slaughtered on the Umpqua Community College campus on Oct. 1.

Funerals for the Oregon victims started Thursday. More are planned for the weekend and next week.

Arizona students heard sirens echoing across campus about 1:30 a.m. Friday and learned about the shooting from Mountain View residents who reported shots fired on social media, NAU freshman Mackenzie Cutrone told the Daily News. Thanks to the alert glitch, she didn’t get the university’s messages about the attack until after the gunman was already in custody.


White Privilege in America is being able to post pictures of yourself armed to the teeth on Facebook, and nobody getting “worried”.

Take Away His “Man Card”

Yeah …That was misogynist! “Feminism” in a whole new light. Two women take down a 50 year old man and rob him old style (no guns or knives).

Then a brother walks by, and seems to do nothing but offer to assist…

Welcome to NOLA!

These two could be onto something lucrative, after spending the next few years in jail for posing so well for the nice camera which also got their license plate number…

But guy…You ain’t seen that comin’ when the heavier one snuck directly behind you? You get a F-minus for street smarts. And that “Smartphone” is now sitting in the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain.

And the brother walking down the street…Shame.

You two “ladies” make my “Domestic Terrorism” list…

Cops Beat Unarmed Mom in Front of Kids

Here we go again…This time a white mom. The second Cop on the scene lands a couple of MMA worthy hammerfists on the woman who is already being restrained on the ground.

It is amazing white conservative racist types think BLM efforts to make Police accountable isn’t a good thing for everyone.

Cops Beat Mom in Front of Young Kids

In 2013, Cindy Hahn came upon a car with its doors wide open and the alarm blasting. Curious, she asked a Carlsbad, California, police officer who was on the scene what was going on—to which he replied, “Mind your own f—king business.” Shocked at this response, she began shooting video, which apparently made him continue to swear at her. Hahn called the police department to report him, and left.

Within minutes, she found herself pulled over for a seatbelt violation, removed from her car, and pinned to the ground. By the same cop. Backup officers arrived, and cellphone footage shows Hahn being punched repeatedly in the face as her children screamed from the car nearby.

Charges of resisting arrest and battery on a police officer were dropped in July when the San Diego district attorney saw this video, her lawyer, Mark Geragos, reports. The officers now face charges of their own, including lying under oath during Hahn’s criminal case. Reached for comment, the Carlsbad Police Department said it “looks forward to bringing this lawsuit before the proper judicial authorities.”

Hahn says her son still talks about the incident.

“The only thing that he’ll talk to me about is, ‘I couldn’t protect you, Mom. I could’ve. I could’ve got him off you. I could have helped you,’” she told CBS Los Angeles.

Killer Cop in Texas



Will a killer cop go free in Texas?

ON JULY 26, 2013, Austin, Texas, police detective Charles Kleinert racially profiled Larry Jackson Jr., proceeded to chase him down over a crime he didn’t commit, and shot him in the back of the neck at point-blank range.

Last week, Larry Jackson’s family sat in a courtroom and listened as Kleinert took the witness stand and justified everything he did that day, including killing Jackson. “He showed no remorse,” said Larry’s sister LaKiza Fowler.

The police claim that they encountered Jackson while investigating a robbery earlier that day at the Benchmark Bank building. Jackson attempted to enter the bank, allegedly claiming to be someone else, but was stopped at the locked doors. He tried to run when Kleinert went to question him.

Kleinert, described by a witness as “out of control,” then pursued Jackson, even commandeering a car to catch up to him. When he did, he beat Jackson. Kleinert then placed his gun to the back of Jackson’s neck and pulled the trigger.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

TESTIMONY AT the hearing last week confirmed many of the glaring flaws in the police story that have led Jackson’s family and their supporters to condemn Kleinert and the Austin Police Department (APD) for a racist murder and cover-up.

One witness, who worked at a hospital nearby, was the woman who had her car commandeered by Kleinert. She recounted how Kleinert stopped her, ordered her to unlock her door, got in and frantically yelled to drive down the street toward where Jackson was running. Kleinert was “red in the face” and so “reckless” that she wasn’t sure if he was a police officer, the witness said.

Another witness was David Dolinak, the then-chief medical examiner for Travis County, who reported the findings from Larry’s autopsy. There was a “dark muzzle imprint” around the gunshot wound, according to Dolinak, meaning that Kleinert’s gun was pressed to Larry’s neck when the fatal shot was fired.

Recounting her experiences in court during a panel discussion at the University of Texas at Austin that evening, LaKiza said, “Being in court today and hearing the expert testimony made us realize more how much Larry suffered.”

She and her family have been struggling for justice in this case for more than two years, and she has drawn a conclusion that the audience at the meeting resoundingly agreed with:

The system is unfair. There are clauses in the law to let cops get away with what they do. What you hear in the news is not true. They only give you bits and pieces, and a certain narrative–the police narrative. I want people to see Larry’s humanity. He had three children, a mother, a father, myself, his sister, his only sibling, my daughter, and many other relatives and friends.

This humanity is flatly rejected by the APD and its powerful allies, and has been since day one. The APD stalled for a full day before informing Larry’s mother of his death, even after she filed a missing person’s report. The woman whose car was commandeered expressed similar problems with the department–she attempted three times later that day to report Kleinert’s actions, but the police didn’t take her seriously.

In fact, Austin police were busy getting their story straight and preparing a smear campaign against Larry, joined by the local media and the courts. Kleinert’s lawyers have been attempting to paint Larry as a criminal and Kleinert as the hero cop who was simply carrying out his duties. In court, they pushed the medical examiner to talk about finding traces of PCP during Larry’s autopsy, suggesting that this made him act erratically.

Currently, Kleinert’s lawyers are attempting to get him off on a technicality. He worked on a federal anti-fraud task force at the time of the murder, and duties performed in that role are immune from state prosecution. In court, Kleinert said that he suspected Larry was at the bank to “commit fraud,”, and he thus had probable cause for the chase, justified by his federal duties. Prosecutors pointed out the absurd logic, since Kleinert didn’t even have probable cause to search Larry at the bank, much less chase him down and kill him.

However, LaKiza and other activists involved in the Black Lives Matter movement know the courts work on the basis of power, not logic. It wasn’t until May 2014, almost a full year after the murder, that Kleinert was even indicted. The charge was manslaughter, not murder, and only came after months of rallying and marching–organized the People’s Task Force, a local anti-racist organization–to put pressure on the Travis County district attorney.

Since then, the case has been repeatedly delayed in the courts, and Kleinert’s lawyers have attempted a series of legal maneuvers. The federal immunity claim is the most recent, and could lead to Kleinert going completely free.

Bernie Gets It Right on Obama

Been saying this since the day Obama took office the first time. His biggest mistake was not understanding that the Republicans in Congress were every bit as much an enemy as Putin or the Ayatollah – and more damaging to America.

Bernie Sanders on Obama’s Biggest Mistake: Thinking GOP Leadership Was Reasonable

Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont whose policies are left of mainstream liberals, told David Axelrod that Obama made a “mistake” by expecting he could easily charm the other party into negotiating with him. “He thought he could walk into Capitol Hill and the Oval Office and sit down with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and the Republicans and say, ‘I can’t get it all. You can’t get it all. Let’s work out something that’s reasonable,’ because he’s a reasonable guy. He’s a pretty rational guy,” Sanders said on the debut episode of “The Axe Files with David Axelrod” podcast.

“These guys never had any intention of doing [serious] negotiating and compromising,” Sanders added, according to a Politico report. “I think it took the president too long to fully appreciate that.”

Mixed Race and christians…

2 things P.O.S. Obama & his son have in common, self proclaimed “mixed race” and attacking Christians on US soil.

Murderer George Zimmerman Tweet on Oregon shooter, who happened to be  conservative with white supremacist leanings…

With any luck perhaps one of these days Zimmerman will wave his manhood replacement Glock at somebody who is also armed.

Why the Poor Stay Poor in America

In summary – America is Failing

At least five large studies in recent years have found the United States to be less mobile than comparable nations. A project led by Markus Jantti, an economist at a Swedish university, found that 42 percent of American men raised in the bottom fifth of incomes stay there as adults. That shows a level of persistent disadvantage much higher than in Denmark (25 percent) and Britain (30 percent) — a country famous for its class constraints.

Meanwhile, just 8 percent of American men at the bottom rose to the top fifth. That compares with 12 percent of the British and 14 percent of the Danes.

Despite frequent references to the United States as a classless society, about 62 percent of Americans (male and female) raised in the top fifth of incomes stay in the top two-fifths, according to research by the Economic Mobility Project of the Pew Charitable Trusts. Similarly, 65 percent born in the bottom fifth stay in the bottom two-fifths.

Where you are born counts… What you should notice is that the Red State South still serves as the boat anchor holding the rest of the country back. That is in huge reason today due to failed Republican Tax CUt policies necessitating a reduction in every service from social services to education. You get what you pay for, and in the case of conservative tax cut and slash policy – what you get is stagnant economic mobility. Ergo the poor stay poor.

In America, the Poorer You Are, the Poorer Your Children Will Be

This country’s terrible social safety net is making it impossible for working-class parents to keep up with their wealthier peers.

When people talk about “balancing work and family,” they’re usually talking more about the workplace than what’s going on at home. Now we’re starting to get data on what the workaday life looks like from a kid’s eye view, and it doesn’t look good.

When debating the issue of work-life balance, arguments over unlimited vacation and employment discrimination center around women’s barriers to opportunity—the perennial glass ceiling that Anne Marie Slaughter and Sheryl Sandberg rage at when lamenting not “having it all.” For working-class folks crushed by on-call schedules or poverty wages, it’s often hard to find any life outside work, let alone to balance work and family lives. But centering the conversation not on career ambition but the life course of a family helps put the false dichotomy of work vs. life in perspective.

In their new book “Too Many Children Left Behind,”Bruce Bradbury, Miles Corak, Jane Waldfogel, and Elizabeth Washbrook help illuminate these gaps by comparing the impacts of inequality across four wealthy countries—the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. They found that poor children in the US are “doubly disadvantaged relative to their peers in the other three countries” because the government’s “social safety net and supports for working families do the least among the four countries to combat inequality”—particularly our national lack of guaranteed paid time off and vacation.

That’s old news, but the center of the researchers’ narrative is not necessarily workers’ lives but their children’s. Poverty limits access to basic resources like nutrition and decent childcare. But a geometrically expanding class divide looms over all income brackets, as wealthier parents zealously splurge on “enrichment expenditures”:

spending on books, computers, high-quality child care, summer camps, private schooling, and other resources that offer a motivating and nurturing environment for children. A generation or more ago, during the early 1970s, a typical family in the top fifth of the income distribution spent about $3,850 per year on resources like these, four times as much as the typical family at the bottom of the income distribution, which spent about $925…. by 2005 it had grown tremendously, to $9,800 versus $1,400.

So poor parents struggling just to cover basic food and shelter face both massive income inequality in their day-to-day lives, plus a seven-fold gap in the amount they can “invest” to help their children thrive in the future. Given that social mobility is already suppressed at all income levels—with children’s future earnings highly correlated with the earnings of their parents—the Herculean amount of “catch up” poor parents must undertake just to get on the same footing as their higher-earning peers makes the great American wealth gap seem even more devastating, for both today’s working households and generations to come.

Moreover, the gender gap straddles the class divide: the “earnings advantage” provided by parents’ wealth, or lack thereof, is skewed against women. A child is likely to inherit a greater share of his dad’s wealth than mom’s. Beyond the perennial “equal pay” debate and the simplistic notion of “78 cents on the dollar,” how does that reality of gender inequality play out in family dynamics, in those difficult late-night conversations on who should stay home with a newborn, or stay late at the office?

But the most enduring impact of these deficits may be impossible to quantify. Economic disadvantage intertwined with structural inequality has a savage effect on a child’s long-term educational prospects—including basic preschool-level skills, like language aptitude and sociability, and failing primary-school grades. And the “achievement gap” (which is itself a notion often politicized with complex racial biases) has folded into a deepening black-white education divide over the last three decades.

Other research has revealed that economic status is a growing factor in academic outcomes, as “the relationship between income and achievement has grown sharply” over the last 50 years. So wealth trumps intellect on many levels.

Closing the gap takes more systemic solutions than just “leaning in.” Class lines reflect a deficit of democracy, created by neglect of government institutions. Research suggests much of the education gap is perpetuated or aggravated while children are wending through the highly segregated school system.

Co-author Jane Waldfogel says via e-mail that in addition to better workplace benefits, policy solutions might come through richer, more accessible early education and childcare: “Universal preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds would help level the playing field by ensuring that all preschoolers receive educationally oriented early education (rather than the case now, where more affluent families can buy preschool, while lower income families have to make do with lower quality care).”

Federal programs like Head Start and childcare subsidies have for years suffered massive funding gaps, leaving tens of thousands of kids underserved. But some states are directing resources into expanding preschool—with pioneering programs in New York City—though it remains to be seen whether lawmakers who have failed to adequately fund K-12 are really willing to invest enough public dollars in the long-term to create a sustainable universal pre-K system.

Waldfogel’s research reveals a need for not just income supports but simply less need to work all the time. For young children of parents who are either out working around the clock, or constantly stressed at home, overwork translates into a materially and emotionally impoverished home environment. During the developmental years, research shows “inequalities in income and family resources are in turn linked with disparities in more proximal factors such as books in the home, lessons and activities outside the home, and parents’ spanking.”

Although many factors shape a household’s social climate, the connection between a parents’ economic frustrations and a pattern of a lack of nurture, even cruelty at home, suggests a troubling through-line in this inheritance of inequity: Wealth doesn’t trickle down, yet economic violence does.…More…
