Berkeley student Ismael Chamu’s financial struggles were the subject of a front page Los Angeles Times story on Sunday. Chamu has now received $54,255 in pledges at an online funding site.

The lengthy LA Times article forgot to mention that Chamu had recently been arrested on hate crime charges.

It’s not Fake News if a famous newspaper simply leaves out the half of the story that doesn’t fit The Narrative.

Update: Now $64,000!

Hate Pays.

    Gambardelli Sallo, one of Wall Street’s largest investment banks, appears set to name Salvatore Massimino to replace Leopoldo DiPhillipo as its next chief executive. The timetable for Mr. DiPhillipo’s retirement is uncertain, but Massimino became the heir apparent to lead the bank when his chief rival for the position, Francisco Iaccobucci abruptly resigned.

    Ismael denies involvement and has pleaded not guilty.

    The next court date is next month, and he has expressed hope that he can put the case behind him.
    ...
    4:05 p.m.: This article has been updated to include details of Ismael’s arrest last year on vandalism charges. He has pleaded not guilty and has not been convicted.
     
    LAT had finally updated with those crucial information.

    So he will have his day in court. UCB better expel him IF he is convicted.

  5. I cannot think of a more instructive case than this one when compared to the behavior of blacks at universities where they perceive a lack of power. Demonstrating that their level of civilization is based on inter-tribal warfare, blacks will seek to limit free speech, tear down statues of Archimedes and Shakespeare (white privilege) and generally seek to reduce the oppresive white overlords to a state of poverty and servitude.

    Whereas, wherefore, et cetera, this young man, exemplifying the advanced state of his native culture, seeks to exploit the situation for personal gain. Before you criticize, be sure he is not going to use the money to fund cancer research or perhaps endow a seat at the symphony, which I am sure is what he had in mind.

    It's not like I particularly care, but when I look up the top-grossing movies, I find it humorous that #1 is still Avatar.

    That came out less than a decade ago, and when was the last time you heard anyone talking about it? For myself, I think it was probably sometime in the winter of 2009. I keep forgetting all about it, except when something reminds me that it made an absurd amount of money, which then reminds me of how quickly it just disappeared from public consciousness.

    Right now, Black Panther is still a safe distance below the filimic masterwork "Furious 7".

    "How much of the money “raised” are pledges–versus actual contributions?"

    Yes, I wondered that. I remember that in 2015 11,000 Icelanders signed a Facebook pledge to take in a "Syrian refugee", something which if it had happened would have substantially altered their demography "and not for the better". It would certainly have added spice to a stroll round Reykjavik at night.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/more-than-11000-icelanders-offer-to-house-syrian-refugees-to-help-european-crisis-10480505.html

    But it never happened. In fact Iceland took in 13 in 2016, double-digit numbers in 2017 and will take 56 in 2018. In 60 years they've taken 584 refugees, less than 10 a year. They also seem to have a policy of putting them in a variety of small towns, so no danger of a 'Syrian zone' in the capital. Cost-free virtue signalling is the best virtue signalling.

    A rereading of the court document confirms that there are 2 charges, Possession Of Tools To Commit Vandalism PC594.2(A)-M and Vandalism Over $400 PC594(A)-F. I mistakenly posted them a one item. PC594(A)-F is the serious, including felony, charge.

    PC594: Every person who maliciously commits any of the following acts with respect to any real or personal property not his or her own, in cases other than those specified by state law, is guilty of vandalism:

    (1) Defaces with graffiti or other inscribed material; (2) Damages; (3) Destroys.

    (b)(1) If the amount of defacement, damage, or destruction is four hundred dollars ($400) or more, vandalism is punishable by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170 or in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or if the amount of defacement, damage, or destruction is ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or more, by a fine of not more than fifty thousand dollars ($50,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment.

    **Interpretive Note: PC 594(b)(1) may be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony. When PC 594(b)(1) is charged as a misdemeanor the defendant may face up to one (1) year in the county jail. When PC 594(b)(1) is charged as a felony the defendant may face up to three (3) years in county prison. Whether or not a misdemeanor or felony vandalism crime will be charged under PC 594(b)(1) depends largely on the defendant criminal history and the egregiousness of the crime.

    PC594.2: (a) Every person who possesses a masonry or glass drill bit, a carbide drill bit, a glass cutter, a grinding stone, an awl, a chisel, a carbide scribe, an aerosol paint container, a felt tip marker, or any other marking substance with the intent to commit vandalism or graffiti, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
    (b) As a condition of probation for any violation of this section, the court may order the defendant to perform community service not to exceed 90 hours during a time other than his or her hours of school attendance or employment.

    It’s virtue signaling turtles all the way down.

    I think that's what's known as a 'shit eating grin'.

    In other CA news:

    I’m just sad for the dozens of Asian girls who lost their hair to provide Maxine her James Brown wigs.

    I tried looking it up and got nothing. I suspect that it's a diminutive of a MesoAmerican name (cf Chuy, which is somehow the diminutive for Jesus).

  28. “It’s not Fake News if a famous newspaper simply leaves out the half of the story that doesn’t fit The Narrative.”
    When a “news” story contains an implication that the writer and/or editor know will cause the reader to make a false inference, I say the story is a Fake News lie.

    Yes, the willingness of people to donate significant amounts of money to complete strangers because of a vague sob story on the internet just baffles me.

    Year ago a Berzerkley cop confiscated a couple hundred dollars from an illegal alien street vendor; something about not having a permit and all the other paperwork.

    Somebody started a beg-a-thon after a video of the deed appeared and the last I heard it was over $70,000….

    Hint: GS.

    Took me a minute. I first thought there was some crime family news. Different Mafia...

    The point was less that they are engaged in mafia-sequels behavior and more how remarkable it would be to see the such a preponderance of any ethnicity but the one at the top of such an organization.

    Gambardelli Sallo, one of Wall Street's largest investment banks, appears set to name Salvatore Massimino to replace Leopoldo DiPhillipo as its next chief executive. The timetable for Mr. DiPhillipo's retirement is uncertain, but Massimino became the heir apparent to lead the bank when his chief rival for the position, Francisco Iaccobucci abruptly resigned.

    Drum roll, symbol crash.

    A level playing field, TD? You’d best be careful what you wish for. Your tail feathers will be grass.

    Ismael denies involvement and has pleaded not guilty.

    The next court date is next month, and he has expressed hope that he can put the case behind him.
    ...
    4:05 p.m.: This article has been updated to include details of Ismael’s arrest last year on vandalism charges. He has pleaded not guilty and has not been convicted.
     
    LAT had finally updated with those crucial information.

    So he will have his day in court. UCB better expel him IF he is convicted.

    He was doing social justice work and refuses to take credit for it?
