NYPD – Death of Black Judge “Suspicious”

As a follow on to the death of Court of Appeals Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, NYPD has reclassified her death from “suicide” to “suspicious”…

NYPD treating death Cops ask public for info on judge found dead in Hudsonof judge found in Hudson River as ‘suspicious’

The death of a pioneering judge found in the Hudson River is being treated as “suspicious” by the NYPD — which has a special contingent of cops investigating how she wound up in the water, The Post has learned.

“We’re looking at it as a suspicious death at this point,” NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis said.

“We haven’t found any clear indications of criminality, but at this point we can’t say for sure. We’re hoping if anyone could shed any light into the hours before her disappearance, it would help us establish what happened.”

Investigators have spent days poring over surveillance video in a vain attempt to trace the final movements of Court of Appeals Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam last week, sources said Tuesday.

Extra cops have been assigned to find and review additional video from stores, residential buildings and mass transit, sources said.

“The problem is that where she lives, there’s a dozen ways of going anywhere,” one source said.

“No video shows how she got anywhere that day.”

Cops also issued a public appeal for assistance Tuesday, with the 26th Precinct in Harlem tweeting an “Information Needed” notice including her photo and a description of the clothing she was wearing before she disappeared.

Abdus-Salaam, 65, was the first African-American female to serve on the state’s highest court.

She was last seen alive by a deliveryman who handed her a package at her apartment the morning of April 12, sources said, and she was reported missing by her husband after he got a call around noon saying she hadn’t shown up at work.

Her body was found floating in about three feet of water near 132nd Street around 1:45 p.m., sources have said.

The Medical Examiner’s Office hasn’t determined the cause and manner of her death, but sources said an autopsy found water in her lungs, suggesting she was alive when she went into the river.

Some slight bruising was found on her neck, but her eyes didn’t show the type of bleeding consistent with strangulation, sources said.

Cops initially described Abdus-Salaam’s death as a suspected suicide, in part because she had struggled with depression and both her mother and brother died earlier around Easter, sources said.

There were no signs of forced entry or a struggle in her apartment at 113 W. 131st St., and she left behind her car, pocketbook, cash, MetroCard and cellphone, which are possible signs of suicidal intent, source said.

Without any evidence that Abdus-Salaam voluntarily jumped into the water, NYPD brass are “worried a video could pop up where a guy has her in headlock, or is dragging her, and it’s not a suicide,” a source said.

“God forbid someone a year from now says, ‘I killed the judge and this is how I did it,’” and police don’t have the evidence to support or refute that claim, the source added,

“That’s why they’re sending out these notices. It’s to cover their bases.”

White Supremacist Travels to NYC to Murder Unarmed Black Men

I am going to do two articles on this one. The first deals with the crime, the second is about Timothy Caughman – the victim, and how the press has tried to de-humanize him as a black man. Funny how the Press and the courts can find so much sympathy for a white boy committing the most heinous of crimes…

But make excuses for the murder of an unarmed black man by sullying his reputation – such as to say somehow he deserved getting shot or stabbed in the back for doing nothing more than walking down the street.

White veteran charged with murder of black man as hate crime

screen-shot-2017-03-22-at-7-06-57-pm.png A white Army veteran accused of randomly killing a black man on the streets of New York by stabbing him with a sword was charged Thursday with murder as a hate crime.

“His intent was to kill as many black men here in New York as he could,” prosecutor Joan Illuzzi said as James Harris Jackson, 28, was arraigned in the slaying of 66-year-old Timothy Caughman. “The defendant was motivated purely by hatred.”

Illuzzi said Jackson was angered in particular by black men who date white women.

Authorities said Jackson traveled from his home in Baltimore last week, picking New York because he hoped to “make a statement” in the media capital of the world. He encountered Caughman, who was collecting bottles from trash cans, and stabbed him in his chest and back, authorities said.

He turned himself in at a Times Square police station early Wednesday, a day after the wounded Caughman staggered into a police precinct. The sword was found in a trash can.

Illuzzi said the charges could be upgraded because the killing was an act “most likely of terrorism.”

Jackson’s lawyer suggested that his client might be suffering from mental illness.

“What we’re going to do is take a few minutes, let the dust settle and figure out what the facts are,” defense attorney Sam Talkin said outside court. “If the facts are anything near what the allegations are, then we’re going to address the obvious psychological issues that are present in this case.”

Jackson told police he had harbored hatred toward black men for at least 10 years, authorities said….More Here

 

11 things corporate media won’t tell you about Timothy Caughman — the unarmed Black man stabbed to death by a white supremacist

nyc-victim.png Timothy Caughman was killed for being Black. He was 66.

A canner, who supported himself by gathering and redeeming bottles and cans, Caughman was doing his job–sorting through recycling–when a 28-year- old army veteran, James Harris Jackson, pulled out a 26-inch mini-sword and repeatedly stabbed him in the chest and back Monday night in Manhattan’s Hell’s kitchen neighborhood. Caughman died at a hospital.

Wednesday, Jackson turned himself in, telling police that he traveled from Maryland to New York City on Friday in order to “target male blacks,” according to Assistant Chief William Aubry of Manhattan South Detectives. “The reason why he picked New York,” said Aubry, “is because it is the media capital of the world… He wanted to make a statement.” The New York Post reports that “Jackson identifies as a white supremacist and told police he penned a manifesto about his racist views,” which included a plan “about an imminent attack on blacks in New York.” He was particularly disturbed by Black men who were in romantic relationships with white women.

So, to recap, a self-identified white supremacist fatally stabbed an unarmed man because he was Black.

Yet, much of the mainstream media coverage has turned a story about the murder of an unarmed Black men into an investigation into the character of an unarmed Black man, as Adam Johnson points out at FAIR. The Daily News and New York Post reported on Caughman’s utterly unrelated and irrelevant arrest record. Even more remarkably, The Daily News thought it was appropriate to remind readers that, “In December 2014, Ismaaiyl Brinsley traveled to the city from Baltimore and assassinated Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were in the car near Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Brinsley had made anti-police statements on social media prior to the murders.” Though tragic, a murder that took place over two years ago doesn’t seem germane. Johnson suggests,

This is a bizarre journalistic choice that appears to be some kind of attempt at “balancing” the coverage, suggesting that there could be a bit of score-settling going on: Yes, this black man was senselessly murdered by a white supremacist, but some other black guy killed cops two-and-a-half years ago, so….

To be fair, there is another angle here. Both crimes were committed by men who traveled from the state of Maryland to New York City. So there’s that.

Another important thing, according to the Daily News and New York Post, is that Caughman lived in transitional housing.

This isn’t the first time the media has tasked itself with scrutinizing and smearing the character of an unarmed Black murder victim. See: Michael “no angel” Brown, Freddie “he caused his own injuries (which he didn’t)” Gray, Trayvon “he smoked pot once and gave the middle finger in a photo once” Martin. The punishment for having once smoked pot is not, actually, execution at the hands of someone who failed the police entrance exam, beats his girlfriends and volunteers as a neighborhood watchman.

Curiously, the same media which is so quick to the judge victims, finds itself capable of extraordinary empathy and understanding when the perpetrator is white. Consider, for example, the story of Brock Turner, who was sentenced to six months (of which he’d serve three) for assault with intent to rape an intoxicated woman and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object. While some were disturbed by the rape and the light sentence, The Washington Post, worried that Turner’s promising swimming career would be disrupted by the conviction. The article, whose headline read, “All-American swimmer found guilty of sexually assaulting unconscious woman on Stanford campus,” featured a fresh-faced posed photo of Turner, not the traditional mugshot.  and not his mug shot.

Caughman happened to be a collector of autographs, a passionate consumer of pop culture and a huge fan of Shari Headley, so outlets have also picked up the human interest angle of the story, which, though preferable, still manages to incorporate the irrelevant information from the smear-based reports. Even an additional article in The Daily News, whose headline reads, “New Yorker who was fatally stabbed by Maryland man loved meeting Hollywood stars,” includes the fact that he lived in transitional housing. Because so little information has been released about Caughman, even places like The Hollywood Reporter, included this irrelevant tidbit in its seemingly harmless listicle: “Timothy Caughman Stabbed To Death: 5 Things About The Innocent NYC Man.” The fourth thing you need to know, apparently, is that Caughman,

lived in transitional housing. Timothy resided in a transitional housing facility on W. 36th street, sources told New York Daily News. Transitional housing is a place for homeless people to stay, generally after they have suffered a crisis.

At least Bustle focuses on the positive in its meta piece promising that “The New Yorker’s Sense Of Optimism Won’t Be Forgotten.”

But there is another story to be found in Caughman’s biography. I first heard about Caughman when Benjamin Dixon, the host of the Benjamin Dixon Show, shared a selfie Caughman had posted of himself at 9:30 A.M. this past election day. It read, “Standing on line waiting to vote I love america.”  Dixon added his own comment: “Wow. Timothy Caughman. Murdered by a white supremacist who specifically targeted black men.”…More on Timothy’s life Here...

‘I don’t want to sit next to black people’: NY woman stabs black man in face after he offers his subway seat

A woman has been taken into custody after allegedly stabbing a transgender black man in his face when he offered his seat Sunday night on the subway, only to have her say, “I don’t want to sit next to black people.”

According to PIX11, Stephanie Pazmino, 30, was taken into custody and charged with assault as a hate crime, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon after assaulting Ijan DaVonte Jarrett.

According to Jarrett, he offered his seat to Pazmino who refused before turning to her companion and saying in Spanish that she didn’t want to sit next to a black person.

“I got up anyway and said to her that she didn’t have to sit next to me,” Jarrett,told the New York Daily News. “I took a seat across from her and just forgot all about it.”

According to Jarret, the woman attacked him by punching him as attempted to get off at his stop, and that he didn’t know he had been stabbed until bystanders stepped in to help.

In addition to being slashed in the face by Pazmino, Jarrett was also stabbed in his left arm. The police recovered the two inch knife Pazmino used to stab Jarrett when she was arrested in the street.

Jarret was taken to a local hospital and was listed in stable condition.

Don’t Want Your Stinkin’ Trump Name On Our Building!

The Chumph Brand is dead.

‘Trump Place’ Apartments Ditch Their Name After Residents Protest

A petition got hundreds of signatures.

Three New York City apartment buildings are removing Donald Trump’s name from their exteriors after residents started a “Dump the Trump” petition.

Workers were seen taking down the big gold “Trump Place” letters from one of the three buildings on the Upper West Side of Manhattan Wednesday morning.

The “Dump the Trump Name” petition, while not confirmed as the direct cause of the change, gathered 677 signatures after it was launched about a month ago.

“It’s nuts that we’re now living in a place that is advertising values that none of us believe in,” petition co-author Linda Gottlieb told CNBC. The petition cited Trump’s “appalling treatment of women, his history of racism, his attacks on immigrants, his mockery of the disabled, his tax avoidance, his outright lying,” that the name insults many of the minorities and immigrants who work in the building, and that the naming deal increases Trump’s net worth.

The three buildings were under contract to bear Trump’s name for a time, but that contract has ended, according to Marty McKenna, a spokesman for the buildings’ landlord, Equity Residential. The buildings will now be called simply by their Riverside Drive street addresses instead.

“Assuming a more neutral building identity will appeal to all current and future residents,” McKenna told HuffPost.

Racist Stop an Frisk Still Continues in NYC

And here you thought they cleaned up their act…

It’s still happening: NYPD plainclothes cop stops and frisks black teen for standing on sidewalk

Screenshot from Jonathan Franks' Twitter account

Montel Williams’s Political Director Jonathan Franks shared a video to his Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon of a young black male being stopped and frisked in Midtown Manhattan by two New York police officers in plain clothes.

The tweet read, “Welcome to being black in Midtown Manhattan… I was there – no reasonable suspicion…” The video shows a boy on the street-side standing as an officer searches his pants pockets.

What’s especially important, as Franks notes, is there was no reasonable suspicion.

A New York Civil Liberties Union study found that since 2002, New York residents have been stopped, searched, and interrogated by police in the street over 5 million times.

The organization also found that black and Latino individuals are more likely to be targeted by this particular policing tactic.

While the prevalence of the practice has declined since 2012, the NYCLU found that between January and June 2016, New Yorkers were stopped by police 7,636 times. Seventy-seven percent of targets were innocent, 53 percent were black, 30 percent were Latino, and just 11 percent were white.

The 2013 case, Floyd vs. City of New York questioned whether the use of stop and frisk practices in New York City between 2004 and 2012 was constitutional.

Finding that “statistical and anecdotal evidence showed that minorities are indeed treated differently than whites,” as Judge Shira Scheindlin wrote in her opinion, the practice was deemed a violation of the 14th Amendment.

“Once a stop is made,” she wrote, “blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be subjected to the use of force than whites, despite the fact that whites are more likely to be found with weapons or contraband.”

Despite this 2013 decision, it appears that the racial policing practice of stop and frisk remains alive and well in the city of New York.

The Court’s Stopped Clock Moment

The US Court systems, especially at the state level and below have gotten pretty miserable. The system is so imbalanced and corrupted as to be contemptible. So much so, when something goes right justice wise…

It is hard to believe.

What was that old Red Foxx joke about the Karate guy and the local guy fighting in a bar…”Karate, Korea Tae Kwan Do 1957!” …”K-Tire Iron, 1958 Caddy!”

New York City cab driver Mamadou Diallo was acquitted of manslaughter charges in death of his wife's rapist (Screen capture)

NY court erupts in cheers as charges dropped against man who beat his wife’s rapist to death

Wednesday, a court in Bronx, New York dropped charges against a man who killed an intruder who was trying to sexually assault his wife.

WABC reported Wednesday morning that the courtroom erupted in cheers when Judge Marc Whiten announced that he will accept a motion to dismiss manslaughter charges against 61-year-old cab driver Mamadou Diallo.

In May, police records say, just after Diallo left his apartment in the Bronx for work, a career criminal named Earl Nash went knocking from door-to-door in the building asking for water. Nash — whose police record showed more than 20 arrests for acts of theft and violence — reportedly tried to entice a little girl into the stairwell, but she ran away.

When he knocked on the Diallos’ apartment door, however, the cab driver’s 51-year-old wife — who has there at home with her sister — opened it a crack, which was all Nash needed to kick in the door and attack the women.

Nash smashed a chair down on Diallo’s wife’s head. When she crumpled to the floor, Nash began to rip her clothes off and tried to rape her.

With her sister’s help, the woman fought free and was able to call Diallo, who raced home in his cab and strode into the building brandishing a tire iron. He stepped off the sixth floor elevator, caught sight of Nash and attacked him, beating him in the head and body.

First responders arrived at the scene and transported an unconscious Nash to Lincoln Hospital, where he died.

A coroner’s report determined that Nash’s death was a homicide and prosecutors lodged manslaughter charges against Diallo.

He was released from custody in June and Diallo’s defense team submitted a motion to dismiss the charges, which Judge Whiten accepted.

Diallo told the New York Daily News after his release, “I don’t want to be a hero” for what he’d done. He said he only resorted to violence because his wife was in danger.

“Nobody’s happy when you fight with somebody and die,” said Diallo. “Nobody likes that. (But) you don’t mess with a man’s family, a man’s wife. Your family is your family.”
