Second Black Judge Found Dead…Ethnic Cleansing of the Courts?

Two black Judges found dead in two days. The second under mysterious circumstances.

To tell the truth, after the sleazebags went to extremes to  force the illegitimate Gorsuch on the Courts, and with the appointment of Sessions as AG…

I really don’t doubt the possibility of their murdering Judges to whiten the Courts.

Chicago Police Arrest Suspect in Fatal Shooting of Judge, Others Sought

Chicago police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of a Cook county judge in what police described as a “targeted robbery.”

Joshua Smith, 37, turned himself in to answer detectives’ questions Wednesday and was later charged with first-degree murder and other charges in the death of Associate Judge Raymond Myles, who was shot multiple times outside his home at around 5 a.m. on Monday.

Ballistics evidence matched a gun used in a January robbery where a victim was shot and wounded, and surveillance video captured the license plate of a vehicle seen leaving the scene, Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Melissa Staples said at a press conference.

“The motive of this crime is robbery, which we do not believe is random — nor do we believe Smith acted alone,” she said.

A female friend who worked out with Myles had first encountered the gunman on Monday morning. Words were exchanged and she was shot in the leg, police said. Myles was coming to her aid when he was fatally shot, although he was not the target of the robbery, NBC Chicago reported, citing police.

Smith was convicted of armed robbery with a firearm in 2003 and served six years in prison, Staples said.

Staples at Wednesday’s press conference would not say who the target of the robbery was or how many other people may have been involved, citing the ongoing investigation. She said more details could emerge at a bond hearing scheduled for Thursday.

First African-American Female Judge On New York’s Top Court Found Dead

Associate Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, the first African-American woman to be appointed to New York’s Court of Appeals, was found dead on Wednesday in the Hudson River.

She had been reported missing from her home in Harlem.

The New York Times reports:

“Officers with the New York Police Department’s Harbor Unit responded about 1:45 p.m. to a report of a person floating by the shore near West 132nd Street in Upper Manhattan.

“Judge Abdus-Salaam, 65, was taken to a pier on the Hudson River and was pronounced dead by paramedics shortly after 2 p.m.

“The police were investigating how she ended up in the river, and it was not clear how long Judge Abdus-Salaam, who lived nearby in Harlem, had been missing.

“There were no signs of trauma on her body, the police said. She was fully clothed.

“A law enforcement official said investigators had found no signs of criminality. Her husband identified her body.”

Abdus-Salaam became the first female Muslim to serve as a U.S. judge when she joined the New York State Supreme Court in 1994, according to Zakiyyah Muhammad, the founding director of the Institute of Muslim American Studies, as quoted in The Times.

In 2013, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., appointed her to the state’s highest court, known as the Court of Appeals.

In a statement, Cuomo said Judge Abdus-Salaam was a pioneer with an “unshakable moral compass.”

Her nomination was part of a push by Cuomo to diversify the court.

When Judge Rowan Wilson joined the court this year, it was the first time the state’s highest court had two African-American judges serving on it.

In a statement, Chief Judge Janet DiFiore said Abdus-Salaam’s “personal warmth, uncompromising sense of fairness and bright legal mind were an inspiration to all of us who had the good fortune to know her.”

The Court of Appeals has been on recess since the end of last month. The court is due back in session in less than two weeks.

Exceptionally Stupid Republican

Yeah Buddy, how about a free order of Size 13 up the wazoo!

GOP candidate offers Harlem residents free KFC and watermelon — they offer him ‘a foot in the ass’

Republican New York State Senate candidate Jon Girodes (Screen cap).

A Republican candidate for New York’s state senate is taking heat after he promised to give out free fried chicken and watermelon to people who attended one of his campaign events in Harlem.

NBC 4 New York reports that Jon Girodes, the Republican candidate for New York’s 30th District, told the news station that he planned to hand out “Kool-Aid, KFC and watermelons” to people who attended a Harlem campaign rally in the coming weeks.

Harlem, of course, is a majority black neighborhood, and watermelons and fried chicken are two foods that are used to stereotype black Americans. All the same, Girodes doesn’t think there’s anything offensive about his stunt since people in the neighborhood should be grateful that they’re getting free food.

“What I think is anyone who gives free food to people is doing them a favor,” Girodes told NBC 4 New York’s I-Team. “Get a bunch of people who say it’s offensive and let me go into their neighborhood and give it out for free and see if they take it.”

Harlem residents, for their part, were not flattered by Girodes’s supposedly generous offer.

“It’s racist,” Harlem resident Tyrone Nero told the news station. “Whoever he is, I think he should go back in whatever hole he crawled in and have a great life.”

“It’s more than an insult and anybody with any sense would see that’s pathetically racist and insulting,” said Harlem resident Scott Randolph.

Meanwhile, another resident responded to Girodes’s “donation” of food by offering to “donate various foots in his ass.”

Trump University – “Straight up Fraud”

The New York Attorney General is going after the Drumph with both guns blazing. So far, the cases have been Civil, both in California and New York. With the strong statements by the NY AG, that may change over to criminal. Calling out the Judge in California was pure childish petulance.

What may indeed happen here, is that other Trump scams may also come under the legal microscope. Hid Vitamin supplement, and water business seem likely targets. If Trump wins the election, he may be the first President to start office…

From jail.

‘This is straight up fraud’: New York’s attorney general shreds Trump University on ‘Morning Joe’

The Trump campaign is doing its best to spin the embarrassing revelations that came out this week about Trump University, but New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman isn’t having any of it. Appearing on Morning Joe on Thursday, Schneiderman tore through any questions about whether Trump University was a legitimate enterprise or not by forcefully making the case that it was “straight up fraud.”

“It’s like selling people something you say is a Mercedes and it turns out to be a Volkswagen,” Schneiderman said. “And even if some people say, ‘Well actually, I kind of like the Volkswagen,’ it’s still fraud because it’s not a Mercedes. This was not a university.”

Schneiderman then went into detail about how Trump blatantly lied about Trump University in marketing videos aimed at prospective students.

“Trump’s role was really a the pitchman,” he said. “And we’ve got his videotapes, and we’ve got his sworn testimony which undercuts every statement in the videotapes. He said, ‘My hand-picked experts will teach you my personal secrets.’ He and the president of the university have already testified under oath he never met the instructors, they weren’t hand-picked. They weren’t experts — some of them came out of fast food and retail. And he had nothing to do with the supposed secrets that were taught because he had nothing to do with the curriculum.”

Harriet Tubman Home to Become National Park

On the Money, and now a National Park for this exceptional woman –

Harriet Tubman’s Home taken around 1940

Harriet Tubman Gets Historical National Park In New York

Just two days after the official announcement that Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed an agreement establishing the celebrated abolitionist’s former home as a National Historical Park.

The agreement allows land belonging to Harriet Tubman Home Inc. in Auburn, New York, to be transferred to the National Park Service, Cayuga County’s newspaper The Citizen reports. The 26-acre property will now be known as the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park. Congress approved legislation in 2014 to create this park and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park in Maryland.

Tubman escaped from slavery in Maryland in 1849, but she returned numerous times to rescue at least 70 other people. In 1859, she moved to a house in Auburn, New York. In 1896, she bought 25 acres next to that property, where she opened the Harriet Tubman Home for the Aged, which provided housing for elderly African-Americans. She deeded the establishment to the AME Zion Church in 1903, with the agreement that they would manage the home and the property, according to the National Park Service.

Harriet Tubman National Historical Park includes Tubman’s former residence, the Home for the Aged and the nearby Thompson Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church.

Video if James Blake “Arrest”

The cop comes up, doesn’t identify himself, and slams Blake to the ground…

Shortly after the video was released, Mr. Blake, who is biracial, released a statement reiterating earlier comments that the officer didn’t identify himself, ask his name or “in any way afford me the dignity and respect due every person who walks the streets of this country.”

And while he said he greatly appreciated the apologies, “extending courtesy to a public figure mistreated by the police is not enough.”

Mr. Blake went on to say he hopes the incident will be a “catalyst for change in the relationship between the police and the public they serve” and asked that the city make “a significant financial commitment” to improve the relationship between law enforcement and citizens in certain neighborhoods.

The operation that led to Mr. Blake’s arrest began after police received a tip from an Internet courier service that had received suspicious orders, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said in a news conference on Thursday.

The sting resulted in the arrests of two men who were at the same hotel as Mr. Blake, Chief Boyce said.

Before the operation, the courier service gave the NYPD a photo from a social media account of a person believed to be one of the suspects, Chief Boyce said, which bore a striking resemblance to Mr. Blake. The NYPD didn’t release the photo, which turned out to be of an innocent person, Chief Boyce said.

Republican White Supremacist Blows Leg off Trying to Make Bomb

Another Faux News listener, and confederate flag waiver. Making bombs filled with BBs and nails…

“Republican” you ask…Look at the Bush/CHeney signs still hanging up in the garage.

And “BBs and Nails” in an explosive aren’t going to do much good “blowing up stumps”…except creating your own.

New York white supremacist blows off his own leg while making bombs at his house: prosecutors

An upstate New York man who blew his leg off in his garage making improvised explosive devices will be held in federal custody without bail because law enforcement found white supremacist paraphernalia and believe he’s dangerous,WGRZ reports.

Michael O’Neill, 45, a former Niagara County corrections officer, is accused of making seven bombs and was arrested two weeks ago after one of the devices accidentally went off. O’Neill was rushed to a hospital where his leg had to be amputated. He was the only one injured, WGRZ reports.

“Luckily, he is detained,” Assistant U.S. Attorney John Alsup told Time Warner Cable News. “He is no longer at large in the community with or without some of the physical disabilities he’s going to have going forward, but luckily for the community, he only hurt himself.”

Pictures of the KKK, Nazi imagery and the Confederate flag were found inside his home, which he lives in with his stepfather, William Ross, who chairs the Niagara County Legislature, WGRZ reports.

Even with his leg now missing, prosecutors believed it would be too risky for the public if O’Neill was released from custody.

The explosives he created contained nails and BB pellets, according to reports. One was labeled “powder with nails.”

His attorney said O’Neill was just planning to blow up some tree stumps.

“The fact that there were some items that we described in court as consistent with, white supremacists, to include the Ku Klux Klan, and the Nazi imagery, some of the verbiage which was particularly on the Nazi picture, also the Confederate battle flag, means that law enforcement has more work to go,” U.S. Attorney William Hochul told TWC News.

O’Neill will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshalls while he recuperates, then will be transferred to a detention facility.

After the explosion, a neighbor told local WKBW that O’Neill spend hours on end

“We only know that we see him at night, in the middle of the night, all hours of the night, all seasons, just out in the garage, out in the back yard,” the neighbor told the station.

Ross told reporter he didn’t know what O’Neill was doing and if he did, he would have alerted authorities.
