Reaping the Whirlwind – Republicans Under Citizen Attack

Another Republican Senator under attack …

Perhaps consistently proposing bills stripping benefits and rights, defending a traitor in Chumph, and voting against the interests of Americans is beginning to catch up.

Lot of crazy going on in Kentucky right now, with the Governor calling for all elected officials sed fo or convicted of sexual harassment to resign.

Rand Paul attacked at home in Kentucky — suspect in custody

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) was the victim of an assault at his home in Bowling Green on Friday, said The Hill.

Police said that the Warren County Attorney’s Office issued a warrant for a 59-year-old man named Rene Boucher on Friday night and police took him into custody shortly thereafter.

“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault,” said Sen. Paul’s spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper in a statement. “The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”

Boucher was reportedly charged with second-degree assault resulting in minor injury.

Autistic 15 Year OLd Black KId Assaulted by White Man – Police Refuse to Prosecute

Like a kid in track shots and a High School labelled T is a threat…

This one is utter bullshit by the Syracuse Police.

Autistic black teen got lost running a 5K — and was assaulted by a man who feared getting mugged

For more than two years, Clarise Coleman faithfully attended every track practice and every cross-country meet for her son, Chase.

Part of it was being a supportive parent, proud that Chase had finally found “his sport.” Coleman loved the camaraderie that the cross-country team gave her 15-year-old freshman, even if it meant frequently road-tripping from their home in Syracuse for meets all around New York state.

But as the mother of a nearly nonverbal autistic child, Coleman also knew that she needed to be there for Chase in case he needed help. She often scouted out racecourses ahead of time, noting where the lanky teenager might get lost or confused, as he often did.

A few weeks ago, her worst fears came true when Chase — who was running in a meet in Rochester, N.Y., with his team from Corcoran High School — was assaulted by a stranger in the middle of a race.

Coleman had been waiting for him near the reservoir in Cobb’s Hill Park, at a part of the course where runners would come down a hill — but Chase never appeared. So as she often would do at meets, she went looking for him.

“I started walking that direction, and I’m screaming his name out: ‘Keep going, Chase!’” Coleman told The Washington Post. “And a young lady came up to me and said, ‘Are you looking for one of your runners?’ … She said, ‘Some man just assaulted him.’ ”

Coleman ran in the direction the woman pointed and soon saw her son walking toward her, accompanied by a bicyclist who had assisted him.

“I asked, ‘Is Chase okay?’ ” Coleman said, adding that one often needs to speak to Chase in the third person. “I check his body. I’m checking his face. I pulled his shirt. ‘Show Mommy where Chase hurts.’ ”

Chase put his hand on his back. “Back,” he said. 

When Coleman was told what witnesses saw, her fears deepened.

The female witness, identified in a police report as Collin Thompson, told police that she had seen Chase running in the middle of the road. Thompson then witnessed an older white male get out of his car, according to a police incident report. Thompson said the man approached Chase and pushed him to the ground, after which he yelled, “Get out of here.”

The other witness, Kris Van Metter, told Syracuse.com that he had just finished a bicycle ride when he saw the same scene.

“I see a grown man, who is quite tall and fairly heavy … exit the vehicle and give this young man a shove that puts him back 10 feet and flat on his butt,” Van Metter told the news site. “Like, just shoved him across the road. The kid didn’t seem to be doing anything but standing there, obviously had nothing in his hands and weighed all of 130 pounds. This guy was easily twice that.”

Neither Thompson nor Van Metter could be reached Sunday.

They had, however, caught the man’s license plate number and police used it to track down a 57-year-old man named Martin MacDonald at his home in Pittsford, a suburb of Rochester, the incident report said.

When a deputy visited MacDonald’s home, he admitted he had pushed Chase to the ground, the report said.

“When [the deputy] asked him why he did that, he replied that he thought Chase was going to mug his wife and take her purse,” the incident report said. “MacDonald’s wife was sitting in the front passenger seat at the time of the [incident]. When [the deputy] asked him why he thought that, MacDonald told him that some youths had broke into his car recently and that crossed his mind. MacDonald went on to say that Chase wasn’t responding to him telling him to move out of the road.”

Coleman said the Rochester police relayed MacDonald’s explanation to her — noting that it had been black youths who had allegedly broken into MacDonald’s car — and she was aghast that this could be used to justify an attack on Chase.

“I said, impossible. That’s a lie. Chase don’t even know how to defend himself. What? He can barely ride a bike,” Coleman said. “[Chase] was in a uniform. He had a number pinned to him. How did you think that he was out trolling to steal your car? … You can’t tell me that it wasn’t because my son wasn’t black. There were Asian kids, there were Caucasian kids. But you picked the black kid to say, ‘That crossed my mind’?” …Read the Rest Here

SJSU – Hate Crime on Campus As Student Abused

Read this one with a bit of disbelief at first.  Then, I thought about it. This is the logical outgrowth of the racist policies promoted by Ward Connerly, and the Prop 209 he promoted.

Although highly criticized by conservative whites, one of the functions of the Black Student Union back in the 60’s and 70’s was self protection. White conservatives didn’t like the idea that they couldn’t just round up a few of their neo-confederate buddies and beat the hell out of some black kid, without winding up in a donnybrook. The segregated California University system has apparently put that type of behavior back in play.

San Jose State students accused of tormenting black roommate are charged with hate crimes

First, his white roommates nicknamed him “Three-fifths,” referring to the way the government once counted blacks as just a fraction of a person. When he protested, they dubbed him “Fraction.”

Then they outfitted the four-bedroom dormitory suite they shared with a Confederate flag. They locked him in his room. They wrote the “N-word” on a dry-erase board in the living room. They fastened a bicycle lock around his neck and told him they lost the keys, then tried it again a few weeks later.

It may sound like something out of the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. But police reports indicate it happened last month in the Obama era to a black student at San Jose State University, a liberal campus boasting statues of Olympic athletes making a black power salute.

Late Wednesday, prosecutors filed misdemeanor hate-crime and battery charges against three of the student’s roommates over the alleged hazing, which has sparked anger in the community and on the diverse campus. The men are Logan Beaschler, 18, of Bakersfield; Joseph Bomgardner, 19, of Clovis; and Colin Warren, 18, of Woodacre (Marin County).

“This is outrageous,” said the Rev. Jethroe Moore II, president of the San Jose/Silicon Valley chapter of the NAACP. “This form of bullying cannot be tolerated.”

The students were not available for comment and it was unclear late Wednesday whether they had legal representation. They could face penalties ranging from probation to a year in jail if convicted, as well as university discipline.

University spokeswoman Pat Lopes Harris said the incident is still under investigation, and no decision has been made yet on whether the students will be sanctioned.

The alleged harassment began in late August when the freshman and seven other young white men — all assigned to live together — moved into the four-bedroom, on-campus suite. Eight weeks later, in mid-October, the freshman’s parents noticed a Confederate flag draped over a cardboard cutout of Elvis in the living room of the suite and a dry-erase board with the “N-word” scrawled on it, and reported it via housing officials to campus police. Two of the young men were immediately transferred to a different dorm.

But at least two residential assistants were aware before then that one of the roommates had tacked a Confederate flag to a bedroom window. They asked the young men to take it down “so it could not be seen by the general public,” but did not investigate any further, according to university police reports and campus-housing department memos.

The freshman, now 18, said in a brief telephone interview that he’s never experienced this kind of mistreatment, even though he was one of only a few black students at his high school in Santa Cruz. This newspaper is not naming him at his parents’ request because of the ongoing campus investigation.

“I’m still in shock,” he said, noting he tried not to spend much time in the suite and didn’t report the situation to campus police in hopes the conduct would stop. “I tried not to dwell on this. But my family is upset and I’m upset.”

He told university police he always locked his door at night because he was scared of most of the other students living in the four-bedroom suite. He also didn’t feel safe studying in his own room and believes his grades weren’t as good as they could be as a result.

The young men acknowledged during police interviews that they incessantly harassed the then-17-year-old, according to the reports. But they downplayed the incidents as mere “pranks” and “jokes,” denying their actions were racist.

University police, however, recommended that District Attorney Jeff Rosen file the case as a hate crime.

Prosecutor Erin West emphatically agreed, saying, “The District Attorney’s Office has no tolerance for those who criminally prey on others because they are different.”

Police reports, separate documents prepared by housing officials and photographs document the freshman’s ordeal. The events allegedly occurred after everyone in the suite attended a two-day orientation session this past summer that included sensitivity training.

After the nicknames, there followed a series of coercive incidents, including barring the freshman’s bedroom door with furniture several times to prevent him from coming out.

The first time they wrestled him to the ground, they succeeded in getting the metal bike lock around his neck, the suspects themselves told police. The second time, he managed to evade them, but he told police he got slightly banged up in the process.

One time, they removed the doorknob from inside a closet, and knowing that the freshman was claustrophobic, tried to induce him via a series of post-it messages around the suite to step inside it. One note referred to the closet as “the enrichment center,” and included a homophobic slur and the insult, “Eat —- and die.”

Investigators also found Nazi symbols in the apartment, including a picture of Adolf Hitler, the “SS” lightning bolt symbol and a swastika. They also discovered pictures of pentagrams, apparently intended to alarm the freshman, who is Christian.

After the freshman’s father talked to the roommates and reported the matter, the freshman received what police characterized as a “sarcastic apology note,” signed only “The Residents.” The note mentions “the Beloved Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.” and urges the freshman to let bygones be bygones. It also contains a warning of sorts in the postscript: “The Residents have welcomed you, it is not advised to ignore the call of The Residents.”

Remember…”There is no racism in America!”

One can only wonder when Hannity will have the 4 boys on his show as the right’s new “victimized heroes”, and the local Tea Party will put out a national call for donations to the boy’s defense fund..
