Last January, Berkeley Latinx Studies major / nonbinary pronoun activist Pablo “They” Gomez was arrested on charges of murdering a woman he didn’t know, schoolteacher Emilie Inman, and stabbing nonfatally fellow SJW activist Kiana Schmitt. The stabby little social justice jihadi was found sane enough to stand trial on a 2-1 vote. Monday was the first hearing since then.

Gov. Jerry Brown, Zillionaire Tom Steyer, and They

From Berkeleyside:

UC Berkeley student told friend after fatal stabbing: ‘It’s your time now’

By Emilie Raguso Nov. 13, 2017, 10:36 p.m.

… Gomez, 22, was also a UC Berkeley student at the time of the killing for which they* have been charged. They wore red jailhouse scrubs over a purple T-shirt at the Alameda County Superior Court hearing in Oakland, and kept their small hands clasped together on the table for much of the day. At times, they propped up their elbows and rested their face on their hands as they listened without reaction to the testimony that would determine the direction of the case.

* Gomez’s pronoun is “they.” Read more about personal gender pronouns. Each instance of “they” in this story refers to Gomez alone.

Authorities say Gomez fatally stabbed a stranger, 27-year-old Emilie Inman, at her Ashby Avenue home near Alta Bates hospital on Jan. 6. …

Defense attorney George Arroyo, with the Alameda County public defender’s office, kept his questions brief. He focused on testimony related to his client’s possible break with reality during events that led up to the killing and the non-fatal stabbing of Gomez’s friend, Kiana Schmitt.

The star witness and her socially constructed eyebrows.

… As her small black service dog, which wore a bright green vest, at times licked tears from her face, Schmitt described her memories, to prosecutor John Ullom, of the day she said she was stabbed by her “close friend,” Gomez. The two had known each other for about a year as of January when the incidents took place.

Gomez, Schmitt and several other people had driven up to Berkeley together in Schmitt’s car from Southern California on Thursday, Jan. 5, she said. Cal’s spring semester was to begin the next week. Along the way, Schmitt said Gomez talked passionately about a midnight ceremony Gomez had planned for the night ahead for Día de Los Reyes, or Three Kings Day. The ceremony is also called Epiphany.

Gomez talked during the drive about having had visions and spiritual transformations, and described the upcoming ceremony as an important spiritual event in their Mexican indigenous culture. Gomez also described plans to leave Berkeley the next day for Mexico, Schmitt said.

Later that night, at UC Berkeley’s Afro House student cooperative, Gomez brought a number of items to be used for the ceremony, including a bandana, a flower and a lighter. They laid the items out in a sort of altar, Schmitt recalled. …

… Some of the friends, including Gomez, went “to smoke.” …

About an hour later, Gomez appeared suddenly and was obviously “distressed,” Schmitt said. A scarf was draped over their body. They wore no shirt or pants, and were barefoot. …

“They ran up to my car, motioned for me to open the door and then they got in,” she said, of Gomez. She noticed that Gomez’s hair, which had been waist-length the prior night, had been cut very short. When Schmitt called her friend by the name “Pablo,” Gomez answered, “I’m not Pablo. I’m Ray now,” according to her testimony.

Gomez directed Schmitt to drive to a friend’s house south of campus … According to later court testimony by Berkeley Police Sgt. Peter Hong, the case agent, Gomez did have a friend who used to live at the house, but she had moved out a year prior. That woman told police Gomez had only visited her there once, but that the two were friends through “activist circles” and would see each other at “activist events.”

As Schmitt described what happened next, she began to get upset. Throughout her testimony, she pet her dog often, stroking the small animal’s ears and holding the dog close to her chest.

Schmitt said Gomez was “talking to themselves, muttering,” and told her, “Oh, there’s a woman in the sky. Can you see her?”

“What are you talking about?” Schmitt asked Gomez. …

At noon Monday, when Grant described trying to find Emilie Inman’s body, it was the first time her name had been mentioned in the court proceedings, which had begun before 10 a.m. …

Emilie Inman, RIP

As he described the scene, Inman’s parents held hands, and her father cried audibly for the first time throughout the day’s proceedings.

… Judge Desautels said it did appear, based on the evidence, that Gomez could have committed murder… She ordered Gomez to continue to be held without bail, and ordered Gomez to return to court Nov. 27 for the next hearing in the case.

Earlier in the morning, before the proceedings began, Inman’s mother attempted to take a moment to introduce herself to, and acknowledge, a woman on the other side of the courtroom she thought might be Gomez’s mother.

“Are you Mrs. Gomez? I’m Emilie’s mom,” she said.

“We don’t want to talk right now,” said a young man seated beside the woman, curtly.

“I’m not asking any questions,” said Inman’s mother, shaken.

In the afternoon, Inman’s mother broke down outside the courtroom, weeping, and speaking loudly in the direction of the handful people who attended the hearing on Gomez’s behalf.

“Are you human beings to be like that?” she asked, choking with grief. “We are all human beings.”

As I asked back in January:

What are the chances that They was pushed over the edge into homicidal rage by the Trump Derangement Syndrome and Anti-White Hate promoted by respectable media and authority figures?

    In response to Steve’s question at the end: Reading only the story extracts here, the lead-up to the crime is about a thousand times weirder than “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” This sounds like the killer was involved in a cult ritual, involving an actual human sacrifice. Satanism comes to mind, but given the killer’s ethnicity it may have involved some kind of “Aztec” re-enactment.

    If that’s the case, there‘s a bigger story to be investigated, and more people to be prosecuted, than a single deranged killer.

    Kipling's "The Stranger":

    The Stranger within my gate,
    He may be true or kind,
    But he does not talk my talk--
    I cannot feel his mind.
    I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
    But not the soul behind.

    The men of my own stock,
    They may do ill or well,
    But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
    They are used to the lies I tell;
    And we do not need interpreters
    When we go to buy or sell.

    The Stranger within my gates,
    He may be evil or good,
    But I cannot tell what powers control--
    What reasons sway his mood;
    Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
    Shall repossess his blood.

    The men of my own stock,
    Bitter bad they may be,
    But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
    And see the things I see;
    And whatever I think of them and their likes
    They think of the likes of me.

    This was my father's belief
    And this is also mine:
    Let the corn be all one sheaf--
    And the grapes be all one vine,
    Ere our children's teeth are set on edge
    By bitter bread and wine.

    RE: Latinx death cults....

    Adolfo de Jesús Constanzo (November 1, 1962 – May 6, 1989) was a Cuban-American serial killer, drug dealer, and cult leader of an infamous gang dubbed by the media as The Narcosatanists (Spanish: "Los Narcosatánicos").[1] His cult members nicknamed him The Godfather ("El Padrino"). He was reportedly responsible for the murder of Mark Kilroy, an American student killed in Matamoros in 1989, along with several other cult killings.
     

    Constanzo was born in Miami, Florida to Delia Aurora Gonzalez, a Cuban immigrant mother in 1962. She gave birth to Adolfo at the age of 15 and eventually had three children of different fathers. She moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico after her first husband died and remarried there. Constanzo was baptized Catholic and served as an altar boy, but also accompanied his mother on trips to Haiti to learn about Vodou.[2] The family returned to Miami in 1972 and his stepfather died soon after, leaving the family with some money. As a teenager, Constanzo became apprenticed to a local sorcerer and began to practice a religion called Palo Mayombe, which involves animal sacrifice. His mother remarried and his new stepfather was involved in the religion and drug dealing. Constanzo and his mother were arrested numerous times for minor crimes like theft, vandalism and shoplifting.
     

    As an adult, Constanzo moved to Mexico City and met the men who were to become his followers: Martin Quintana, Jorge Montes, and Omar Orea. They began to run a profitable business casting spells to bring good luck, which involved expensive ritual sacrifices of chickens, goats, snakes, zebras, and even lion cubs.[2] Many of his clients were rich drug dealers and hitmen who enjoyed the violence of Constanzo's "magical" displays. He also attracted other rich members of Mexican society, including several high-ranking corrupt policemen who introduced him to the city's powerful narcotics cartels.[2]
    Constanzo started to raid graveyards for human bones to put in his nganga, or cauldron, but before long he would need live human sacrifices instead of old bones. More than 20 victims, whose mutilated bodies were found in and around Mexico City,
     

    Constanzo began to believe that his magic spells, many of which he took from Palo Mayombe, were responsible for the success of the cartels and demanded to become a full business partner with one of the most powerful families he knew, the Calzadas. When his demand was rejected, seven family members disappeared. Their bodies turned up later with fingers, toes, ears, brains, and even (in one case) the spine missing.[3] Constanzo soon made friends with a new cartel, the Hernandez brothers. He also took up with a young woman named Sara Aldrete, who became the high priestess of the cult.
    In 1988, Constanzo moved to Rancho Santa Elena, a house in the desert. It is there where he carried out more sadistic ritual murders, sometimes of strangers and other times of rival drug dealers. He also used the ranch to store huge shipments of cocaine and marijuana.[3]
    On March 13, 1989, Constanzo's henchmen abducted a pre-med student, Mark Kilroy, from outside a Mexican bar and took him back to the ranch. Kilroy was a U.S. citizen who had been in Mexico on spring break. When Kilroy was brought to the ranch, Constanzo murdered him. Under pressure from Texan politicians, Mexican police initially picked up four of Constanzo's followers, including two of the Hernandez brothers.[4] Police quickly discovered the cult and that Constanzo had been responsible for Kilroy's death; he sought a "good"/superior brain for one of his ritual spells. Officers raided the ranch and discovered Constanzo's cauldron, which contained various items such as a dead black cat and a human brain.[4] Fifteen mutilated corpses were dug up at the ranch, one of them Kilroy's.[4] Officials said Kilroy was killed by Constanzo with a machete chop to the back of the neck when Kilroy tried to escape about 12 hours after being taken to the ranch.[5]

    It is sickening to see such genetic garbage, invited into to OUR NATION by the Self-Chosen tribe of criminal elites, continually used as biological weapons of demographic and racial warfare against brainwashed and helpless White women.

  12. HE ATTENDED BERKELEY AND WENT BESERKELY

    America has a very high rate of prison incarceration, but a very low rate of compulsory referral of the mentally ill to secure mental hospitals. Whilst the latter is a problem all over the developed world, it is particularly marked in the US. In the early Post-War period, a deranged fruitcake like Gomez would have been in a secure mental hospital, doped up to his eyeballs with anti-psychotic drugs.
    He would not have had the opportunity to attend Berkeley and go Beserkely !

    They is plural. Is that for his double or triple sex orientation? His pronoun of choice shout be it. Epiphany is a standard Christian religious holiday. It's been around for about 1,7 000 years. There is nothing Mexican pagan indian about it.

    Keeping the deranged locked up was expensive. Then, in the 60s it became fashionable to believe that it was the deranged who were actually the sane ones and the more-or-less normal who were really the disturbed ones (cf. R.D. Laing). So, we closed down the asylums and let the poor mentally ills souls wander among us, often homeless. Oh, brave new world!

    I wondered the same thing. According to the report, not only did Miss Schmitt keep using the absurd pronoun "they", she also had the PC presence of mind to use the inaccurate pronoun in the immediate aftermath of a brutal murder when she herself was stabbed!

    Steve has posted before about how non-describing of perps endangers the public by deliberately avoiding accuracy to appease PC fetishists. The rot has gotten so bad now that even stabbing victims themselves are remembering to use inaccurate descriptions of their attackers in order to enable their escape, confuse the police and appease PC fetishists.

    Attention Miss Schmitt: when you are an accessory to murder, you can drop the PC word games! Shit's real now.

    Berkeley is a DRUG cult. That's its draw and its energy source. Notice that Mr.'s Gomez went off "to smoke". Smoke what? A menthol cigarette? A Swisher Sweet? Most likely the green tobacco or even something laced with cocaine or another mind-alterer. Drugs and crazy go together like strawberry and shortcake.

  20. By the way, I don’t see any references in this article to whether the star witness — who, let us not forget, according to her own testimony drove the murderer to his murder in her own car and drove him away — is badly scarred.

    Is she the only surviving witness that Pablo was the one wielding the knife?

    Being a stereotypist, it would seem implausible to me that a coed would butcher a woman. But then her testimony doesn’t sound that plausible either, other than there’s a dead body. So somebody had to do it, and more likely the male Berkeley student than the female Berkeley student, even if students at California’s top flagship public university don’t actually murder people very often at all.

    So, if the prosecution’s chief witness is all scarred up facially, then I would assume her story is valid because coeds don’t disfigure themselves very often.

    On the other hand, if her wounds had proved superficial and not at all damaging to her looks … well, all we know for sure is that two friends drove to a third person’s house, the third person was murdered, and then the same two friends drove away. Now, one of the those two is testifying against the other one.

    In the posted news account, there are three persons, Inman, the deceased, Schmitt, the injured, and Gomez, the alleged assailant.

    Yeah, I remember reading a murder mystery a while back that concerned a murderess covering her tracks by pretending that the guy she killed attacked her.....with acid. This being fiction, the murderess had enough will-to-power to actually splash acid on herself, badly disfiguring one side of her face.She almost got away with it, as the police simply could not imagine a woman willingly doing that to herself.

  28. This anti-White nonsense ends when asset liquidation squads financially wipe out plutocrat shysters such as Tom Steyer. Plutocrats are not going to give up power without a fight; they will have to be dislodged by pro-White Americans who decide to take power. It is the globalized plutocrats who are pushing the nation-wrecking mass immigration policies that allows the Inman woman’s killer to invade the United States.

    The non-White who killed the beautiful Inman woman should never have been in the United States. Tom Steyer and Shelly Adelson and Paul Singer and Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates and the Koch boys and all the other shyster plutocrats who buy our politicians must have their financial and political power taken from them.

    The opportunity to liquidate the political power and wealth of the globalized plutocrats will come when the next global financial implosion hits. Patriots will arise who will legally push the plutocrats out of power. The plutocrats know their time is up, that is why they have used monetary extremism from the globalized central banks to try to maintain their wealth and power. They will be financially liquidated by patriotic Americans of European Christian ancestry who have had enough of the anti-White nonsense.

    Debt and demography is the name of the game. Monetary extremism and mass immigration are being used as weapons to destroy the historic American nation.

    “We don’t want to talk right now,” said a young man seated beside the woman, curtly.

    “I’m not asking any questions,” said Inman’s mother, shaken.

    What an idiot this young man was! This bleeding heart white lady approached the latinx killa’s mom to do some weird “power-of-forgiveness-and-mother-love” shtick and form some bizarre female bond with her.

    This weird ritual of reconciliation could have saved the wacky latinx killa or at least reduced the latinx’ sentence. Compare this to the South African case 5-10 years ago in which the white parents bonded with their daughter’s killers, started some foundation and even hired their daughter’s killers when they got out of jail!

    Yet the young latinx man decides he needs to “protect” the latinx killa’s mom from the dead girl’s mom and keeps them apart.

    Even the author of the article sees how stupid this move was. She noted that the white lady was “shaken” when her reconciliation/forgiveness/submission gesture was rejected.

    I wondered the same thing. According to the report, not only did Miss Schmitt keep using the absurd pronoun “they”, she also had the PC presence of mind to use the inaccurate pronoun in the immediate aftermath of a brutal murder when she herself was stabbed!

    Steve has posted before about how non-describing of perps endangers the public by deliberately avoiding accuracy to appease PC fetishists. The rot has gotten so bad now that even stabbing victims themselves are remembering to use inaccurate descriptions of their attackers in order to enable their escape, confuse the police and appease PC fetishists.

    These defenses are rarely successful. If it can be shown that the criminal took the drugs voluntarily in order to loosen his inhibitions then it has the effect of aggravating and not lessening the crime. The only way this works if is someone slipped something in his drink or if it was an unknown side effect of a prescription drug or something like that.

    Pablo is not a Harvey Weinstein or an OJ who is going to be represented by some crack team of lawyers. No SJWs are going to come forward to help because he killed one of their own. They has a mediocre public defender who will raise some token objections and then they is going away for a long, long time. A judge has already pronounced they mentally fit. They don't have a chance of getting off or even of pleading to a lesser charge. The taxpayers of California will be feeding they for a long, long time unless they gets killed in prison, of which there is a fair chance.

    America has a very high rate of prison incarceration, but a very low rate of compulsory referral of the mentally ill to secure mental hospitals. Whilst the latter is a problem all over the developed world, it is particularly marked in the US. In the early Post-War period, a deranged fruitcake like Gomez would have been in a secure mental hospital, doped up to his eyeballs with anti-psychotic drugs.
    He would not have had the opportunity to attend Berkeley and go Beserkely !

    The question of the girl’s facial scarring likewise struck me as another missing detail in this poorly-written story. The reporter makes the effort to provide the novelistic detail of a lapdog licking the girl’s face as she testifies, but says nothing about the face itself. Incredible.

    However, I assume (perhaps naively) that the girl’s level of complicity would have been determined by the police during the 10-month investigation. Given the bald ascertainable facts as you state them—unembellished by the bizarre account of the lead-up to the crime—she would have been under suspicion early on.

    The reporter delivered a lot of detail in a limited number of hours.

    No question there might be a good book in the offing about this case; but drafting it in a news story should take a back seat to addressing the questions an intelligent reader would have about the case.

    HE ATTENDED BERKELEY AND WENT BESERKELY

    America has a very high rate of prison incarceration, but a very low rate of compulsory referral of the mentally ill to secure mental hospitals. Whilst the latter is a problem all over the developed world, it is particularly marked in the US. In the early Post-War period, a deranged fruitcake like Gomez would have been in a secure mental hospital, doped up to his eyeballs with anti-psychotic drugs.
    He would not have had the opportunity to attend Berkeley and go Beserkely !
    Pro-active internment of the violently deranged in mental hospitals used to keep a lot of us civilians safe.

    “Pro-active internment of the violently deranged in mental hospitals used to keep a lot of us civilians safe.”

    I've now read the article itself. Berkeleyside DOES go into more detail. Unfortunately the detail makes it clear that Schmitt acted partly as an accomplice, helping to clean up the crime scene, etc. She may have been acting under duress but she was clearly involved. We are getting her version of the story and it doesn't make her sound very good so the truth may be even worse.

    I also understand now why Pablo has been found to be sane - after he committed the crime he had enough presence of mind to hide the body, enlist Schmitt to help clean up the crime scene, threaten her if she did not go along with the plan, etc. Someone who is criminally insane (a high threshold) doesn't have that level of organizational skills.

    Given the testimony, I don't think that Pablo is getting off easy. He is going to be doing some hard time for a straight up murder.

    The Race to Solar-Power Africa
    American startups are competing to bring electricity to communities that remain off the grid.

    This is a revolution same as modern well drilling is for rural Africans. Most Africans live off the power grid. It never reached them. Now solar is coming to them mostly via American investors and companies (not Chinese ones) who think they can turn a profit. Now they can get enough crucial electric to:
    charge cell/smart phones / tablets

    I hope for the best for them, but I'm dubious that ad hoc measures work so well for infrastructure. It feels like it'll run into problems if they attempt to scale, not to the least being the lack of a common and interoperable standard.

    The notion of "economic diversity" as described was interesting. If somehow unicorns manage to power up centralized hubs which are wealthier than the outlying regions, I wonder if it'll lead to a kind of corporate city-state due to the greater power of the city combined with the necessity of relying on the company that built its infrastructure.

Yet, somehow, it never quite comes to pass. At most, Africa ends up with more people in the same old squalor. Contractors and local strongmen get richer. Western taxpayers get a few billion dollars poorer.

    Isn't it better for the world's environment to keep people who are off the grid, off the grid? Once on, their demands for it will probably increase. I've heard that the manufacturing of solar panels (I'm making the assumption these would be used in Africa) has a negative environmental impact. Why increase the world's desire and demand for energy?

    This is a reason that makes me hav some doubts about global warming claims.

    This is one of the strange things about the Antifa Left. In the old America (remember Berkeley was the home of the "Free Speech" movement) it was believed that everyone, even literal Nazis (not Trump "Nazis" but people who actually wore swastikas and proclaimed themselves to be followers of A.H.) was entitled to free speech. The antidote to badthink was not to ban badthink but to air goodthink and the people would choose goodthink over badthink in the marketplace of ideas. The ACLU defended the Nazis all the way to the US Supreme Court.

    But the new left keeps telling us that "Nazis" are not entitled to have any opinion. Gen. Silveria tells the (non-existent) racists of the Air Force Academy not that he disagrees with their opinions but that they need to "get out" - their opinions are totally illegitimate and if you air them you will be expelled (and keep in mind that the Academy is a government run institution where the 1st Amendment is supposed to apply). I think this is because the left has lost confidence in their own ideas, just as happened in Communist countries. They know that they are never going to be able to sell their hateful ideas to the majority of whites so the only alternative is to suppress the speech of those that disagree with them.

    Either way, a bigger story, right? You’d think a reporter would be at least curious about it, maybe ask the prosecutor if there’s a broader investigation going on. If there’s a death cult operating out of Berkeley, maybe people should know about that.

    (On the other hand, from posts I’ve read here over the past year, there’s an argument to be made that Berkeley *itself* is a death cult.)

    Berkeley is a DRUG cult. That’s its draw and its energy source. Notice that Mr.’s Gomez went off “to smoke”. Smoke what? A menthol cigarette? A Swisher Sweet? Most likely the green tobacco or even something laced with cocaine or another mind-alterer. Drugs and crazy go together like strawberry and shortcake.

    “Gomez talked during the drive about having had visions and spiritual transformations, and described the upcoming ceremony as an important spiritual event in their Mexican indigenous culture. Gomez also described plans to leave Berkeley the next day for Mexico, Schmitt said.”

    So the defense is that it is culturally appropriate for Mexicans to kill people?

    Remember the “Black Rage” excuse for murder back in the 1980s?

    “As Schmitt described what happened next, she began to get upset. Throughout her testimony, she pet her dog often, stroking the small animal’s ears and holding the dog close to her chest.”

    “Are you Mrs. Gomez? I’m Emilie’s mom,” she said.

    “We don’t want to talk right now,” said a young man seated beside the woman, curtly.

    “I’m not asking any questions,” said Inman’s mother, shaken.
     
    What an idiot this young man was! This bleeding heart white lady approached the latinx killa's mom to do some weird "power-of-forgiveness-and-mother-love" shtick and form some bizarre female bond with her.

    This weird ritual of reconciliation could have saved the wacky latinx killa or at least reduced the latinx' sentence. Compare this to the South African case 5-10 years ago in which the white parents bonded with their daughter's killers, started some foundation and even hired their daughter's killers when they got out of jail!

    Yet the young latinx man decides he needs to "protect" the latinx killa's mom from the dead girl's mom and keeps them apart.

    Even the author of the article sees how stupid this move was. She noted that the white lady was "shaken" when her reconciliation/forgiveness/submission gesture was rejected.

    That detail made me sick. Altruism addiction is not a pretty sight. There is a place for forgiveness and reconciliation, but it’s not on the first day of your daughter’s murder trial.

    By the way, I don't see any references in this article to whether the star witness -- who, let us not forget, according to her own testimony drove the murderer to his murder in her own car and drove him away -- is badly scarred.

    Is she the only surviving witness that Pablo was the one wielding the knife?

    Being a stereotypist, it would seem implausible to me that a coed would butcher a woman. But then her testimony doesn't sound that plausible either, other than there's a dead body. So somebody had to do it, and more likely the male Berkeley student than the female Berkeley student, even if students at California's top flagship public university don't actually murder people very often at all.

    So, if the prosecution's chief witness is all scarred up facially, then I would assume her story is valid because coeds don't disfigure themselves very often.

    On the other hand, if her wounds had proved superficial and not at all damaging to her looks ... well, all we know for sure is that two friends drove to a third person's house, the third person was murdered, and then the same two friends drove away. Now, one of the those two is testifying against the other one.

    all we know for sure is that two friends drove to a third person’s house, the third person was murdered, and then the same two friends drove away. Now, one of the those two is testifying against the other one.

    One of those people is a tranny Mexican and the other is a White girl.

    We want the justice system to favor White girls over tranny Mexicans. If it’s her word against his, he should lose every single time.

    The result we want: Pablo Gomez out of our society. Why worry about whether she’s lying or not?

    The result that I want is for truth and justice to be served. Maybe they both belong in jail?

    If the ends justify the means and we decide that some people should automatically be believed over others, then you can forget about justice. The goddess of Justice wears a blindfold for a good reason. This week your guys are in charge so white is favored over brown, but next week the other guys are in charge so it's the other way 'round. This raises the stakes on who is in charge WAY too high. This is why, in places like Kenya, elections are matters of life and death and people are willing to commit murder to make sure their side wins. In the old America, elections were low stakes affairs and it was good.
    , @Nico
    The tranny wetback is clearly insane and I would not trust his testimony further than I could throw it.

    Even so, here's why I care about the truthfulness of the girl's word: one reason I prefer white societies to other societies is that people generally don't go about happily driving around murderers with anything appropriate banal frequency. One way that we got there was by fair and iron-handed application of the law in the first decades of the industrial revolution, when murder was rampant, in some countries (England for example) effectively hanging most of the murderous elements out of our midst. After this incredible progress, progressives want to halt it (by not continuing to apply the law to a certain segment of the population which happens to have a different skin color and is "disparately impacted") and dilute it (by importing violent and traumatized savages who do not know nor respect our laws). I don't want to be like them in any way.

    So Schmitt drove they to Inman's murder. She must feel guilty.

    Also notice how the Berkeleyside account suddenly gets all vague and Victorian when it comes to the details of the murder itself. She drives they there and..... Inman's parents cry but we don't know why.

    I’ve now read the article itself. Berkeleyside DOES go into more detail. Unfortunately the detail makes it clear that Schmitt acted partly as an accomplice, helping to clean up the crime scene, etc. She may have been acting under duress but she was clearly involved. We are getting her version of the story and it doesn’t make her sound very good so the truth may be even worse.

    I also understand now why Pablo has been found to be sane – after he committed the crime he had enough presence of mind to hide the body, enlist Schmitt to help clean up the crime scene, threaten her if she did not go along with the plan, etc. Someone who is criminally insane (a high threshold) doesn’t have that level of organizational skills.

    Given the testimony, I don’t think that Pablo is getting off easy. He is going to be doing some hard time for a straight up murder.

    I don't think the article implies that Schmitt actually helped clean up.

    I do think it's weird that she drove the perp away fron the scene, but it sounds like your typical weak willed female to me.

    I do think it's not implausible that drugs (something more potent than cannabis) played a role in this incident though. "Ritual" in Berkeley is often synonymous with drug use.

  71. Why is it that the use of the plural pronoun makes me think of Gollum? Was Tolkien being prescient with his characterization of Smeagol’s descent into madness or just lucky?

    The coddling and encouragement of delusion will always end badly for someone.

    I remember reading Yeats account of the fin de siecle period in Britain and Ireland and then as the century turned everyone seemed to regather their senses and move back towards what passes for normal in the artistic community. I keep thinking we will reach a point where the vast majority of people will shake their heads, wake up, and go “Whoa” that was a close call. I keep thinking that but I see no evidence of it.

    Schmitt said Gomez talked passionately about a midnight ceremony Gomez had planned for the night ahead for Día de Los Reyes, or Three Kings Day. The ceremony is also called Epiphany.

    Gomez talked during the drive about having had visions and spiritual transformations, and described the upcoming ceremony as an important spiritual event in their Mexican indigenous culture.

    Later that night, at UC Berkeley’s Afro House student cooperative, Gomez brought a number of items to be used for the ceremony, including a bandana, a flower and a lighter. They laid the items out in a sort of altar, Schmitt recalled. …

    … Some of the friends, including Gomez, went “to smoke.” …

    About an hour later, Gomez appeared suddenly and was obviously “distressed,” Schmitt said. A scarf was draped over their body. They wore no shirt or pants, and were barefoot. …

    “They ran up to my car, motioned for me to open the door and then they got in,” she said, of Gomez. She noticed that Gomez’s hair, which had been waist-length the prior night, had been cut very short. When Schmitt called her friend by the name “Pablo,” Gomez answered, “I’m not Pablo. I’m Ray now,” according to her testimony.

    Schmitt said Gomez was “talking to themselves, muttering,” and told her, “Oh, there’s a woman in the sky. Can you see her?”

    The Stranger within my gates,
    He may be evil or good,
    But I cannot tell what powers control–
    What reasons sway his mood;

    But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
    And see the things I see;
    And whatever I think of them and their likes
    They think of the likes of me.

    This was my father’s belief

    all we know for sure is that two friends drove to a third person’s house, the third person was murdered, and then the same two friends drove away. Now, one of the those two is testifying against the other one.
     
    One of those people is a tranny Mexican and the other is a White girl.

    We want the justice system to favor White girls over tranny Mexicans. If it's her word against his, he should lose every single time.

    The result we want: Pablo Gomez out of our society. Why worry about whether she's lying or not?

    The result that I want is for truth and justice to be served. Maybe they both belong in jail?

    If the ends justify the means and we decide that some people should automatically be believed over others, then you can forget about justice. The goddess of Justice wears a blindfold for a good reason. This week your guys are in charge so white is favored over brown, but next week the other guys are in charge so it’s the other way ’round. This raises the stakes on who is in charge WAY too high. This is why, in places like Kenya, elections are matters of life and death and people are willing to commit murder to make sure their side wins. In the old America, elections were low stakes affairs and it was good.

    On instinct, habit and principle, I agree with what you write. As you acknowledge by the use of the past tense, however, the world where those instincts, habits and principles work may now be past. When most everyone acted on altruism and fair play, you had "old America". When only a subgroup acts on altruism and fair play while everyone else is self-seeking, you have The Current Year. You and I didn't end the old way, but we do get to live with the result. In the 27 year old's case, he gets to live with the result even longer, so his assessment of it is necessarily less clouded by nostalgia.

    It gives me no pleasure to say that this may be a case where the younger apprehend the situation better than the older. The courts, elections and culture have been pulling the blindfold from the goddess of Justice for a while now. For eight of the past nine years the other guys have been in charge and were unapologetic in their favoritism. It appears that certain people here are already willing to commit murder to make sure their side wins. Elections are already becoming high-stakes through no wish of our own.

    If it is going to be be all identity politics all the time, or as 27 year old puts it, "who-whom all the way down", then it's about time time we start playing this high-stakes game like it matters. Because it does. And we're the only ones who haven't figured it out yet.

    I wondered the same thing. According to the report, not only did Miss Schmitt keep using the absurd pronoun "they", she also had the PC presence of mind to use the inaccurate pronoun in the immediate aftermath of a brutal murder when she herself was stabbed!

    Steve has posted before about how non-describing of perps endangers the public by deliberately avoiding accuracy to appease PC fetishists. The rot has gotten so bad now that even stabbing victims themselves are remembering to use inaccurate descriptions of their attackers in order to enable their escape, confuse the police and appease PC fetishists.

    Attention Miss Schmitt: when you are an accessory to murder, you can drop the PC word games! Shit's real now.

    I especially like your last paragraph, A.M. I don’t think this is some kind of Stockholm Syndrome deal. People are so screwed up nowadays, and an order of magnitude more in places like this, that it is more important to stick with the ultra-PC stupidity than get at any truth.

    Like you said, shit got real here – there’ll be a murder trail for the poor young pretty lady. People in Berserkely were screwed up 30-50 years ago, but this is screwed up to a different level. Reality to them is just another concept than may be just as confusing as the proper use of pronouns.

    I can’t say they all deserve it, but I’m sure the parents of Emily will want to get the hell out of there.

    Or maybe They was into some kind of cartelista Santa Muerte death cult?

    RE: Latinx death cults….

    Adolfo de Jesús Constanzo (November 1, 1962 – May 6, 1989) was a Cuban-American serial killer, drug dealer, and cult leader of an infamous gang dubbed by the media as The Narcosatanists (Spanish: “Los Narcosatánicos”).[1] His cult members nicknamed him The Godfather (“El Padrino”). He was reportedly responsible for the murder of Mark Kilroy, an American student killed in Matamoros in 1989, along with several other cult killings.

    Constanzo was born in Miami, Florida to Delia Aurora Gonzalez, a Cuban immigrant mother in 1962. She gave birth to Adolfo at the age of 15 and eventually had three children of different fathers. She moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico after her first husband died and remarried there. Constanzo was baptized Catholic and served as an altar boy, but also accompanied his mother on trips to Haiti to learn about Vodou.[2] The family returned to Miami in 1972 and his stepfather died soon after, leaving the family with some money. As a teenager, Constanzo became apprenticed to a local sorcerer and began to practice a religion called Palo Mayombe, which involves animal sacrifice. His mother remarried and his new stepfather was involved in the religion and drug dealing. Constanzo and his mother were arrested numerous times for minor crimes like theft, vandalism and shoplifting.

    As an adult, Constanzo moved to Mexico City and met the men who were to become his followers: Martin Quintana, Jorge Montes, and Omar Orea. They began to run a profitable business casting spells to bring good luck, which involved expensive ritual sacrifices of chickens, goats, snakes, zebras, and even lion cubs.[2] Many of his clients were rich drug dealers and hitmen who enjoyed the violence of Constanzo’s “magical” displays. He also attracted other rich members of Mexican society, including several high-ranking corrupt policemen who introduced him to the city’s powerful narcotics cartels.[2]
    Constanzo started to raid graveyards for human bones to put in his nganga, or cauldron, but before long he would need live human sacrifices instead of old bones. More than 20 victims, whose mutilated bodies were found in and around Mexico City,

    Constanzo began to believe that his magic spells, many of which he took from Palo Mayombe, were responsible for the success of the cartels and demanded to become a full business partner with one of the most powerful families he knew, the Calzadas. When his demand was rejected, seven family members disappeared. Their bodies turned up later with fingers, toes, ears, brains, and even (in one case) the spine missing.[3] Constanzo soon made friends with a new cartel, the Hernandez brothers. He also took up with a young woman named Sara Aldrete, who became the high priestess of the cult.
    In 1988, Constanzo moved to Rancho Santa Elena, a house in the desert. It is there where he carried out more sadistic ritual murders, sometimes of strangers and other times of rival drug dealers. He also used the ranch to store huge shipments of cocaine and marijuana.[3]
    On March 13, 1989, Constanzo’s henchmen abducted a pre-med student, Mark Kilroy, from outside a Mexican bar and took him back to the ranch. Kilroy was a U.S. citizen who had been in Mexico on spring break. When Kilroy was brought to the ranch, Constanzo murdered him. Under pressure from Texan politicians, Mexican police initially picked up four of Constanzo’s followers, including two of the Hernandez brothers.[4] Police quickly discovered the cult and that Constanzo had been responsible for Kilroy’s death; he sought a “good”/superior brain for one of his ritual spells. Officers raided the ranch and discovered Constanzo’s cauldron, which contained various items such as a dead black cat and a human brain.[4] Fifteen mutilated corpses were dug up at the ranch, one of them Kilroy’s.[4] Officials said Kilroy was killed by Constanzo with a machete chop to the back of the neck when Kilroy tried to escape about 12 hours after being taken to the ranch.[5]

  77. Many English speakers are familar with the fact that other European languages have different pronouns for the second person singular versus the second person plural (thou versus you in older forms of English). They also know that the plural form is used even as a singular with people who are older, not well familiar or, in former times, higher status (ie, the singular form was only for peers).

    What is less well known is that in some languages of Europe, especially those influenced by Hungarian culture (and of course in Hungarian itself), nobility were addressed using the third person plural functioning as the second person singular. Eg, ‘how are their Majesties today?’ on addressing the king.

    “Are you Mrs. Gomez? I’m Emilie’s mom,” she said.

    “We don’t want to talk right now,” said a young man seated beside the woman, curtly.

    “I’m not asking any questions,” said Inman’s mother, shaken.
     
    What an idiot this young man was! This bleeding heart white lady approached the latinx killa's mom to do some weird "power-of-forgiveness-and-mother-love" shtick and form some bizarre female bond with her.

    This weird ritual of reconciliation could have saved the wacky latinx killa or at least reduced the latinx' sentence. Compare this to the South African case 5-10 years ago in which the white parents bonded with their daughter's killers, started some foundation and even hired their daughter's killers when they got out of jail!

    Yet the young latinx man decides he needs to "protect" the latinx killa's mom from the dead girl's mom and keeps them apart.

    Even the author of the article sees how stupid this move was. She noted that the white lady was "shaken" when her reconciliation/forgiveness/submission gesture was rejected.

    You guys support pedophiles (Roy Moore) and sex fiends (Trump)

    You don't get to have an opinion because of your gross unearned privilege

    This is one of the strange things about the Antifa Left. In the old America (remember Berkeley was the home of the “Free Speech” movement) it was believed that everyone, even literal Nazis (not Trump “Nazis” but people who actually wore swastikas and proclaimed themselves to be followers of A.H.) was entitled to free speech. The antidote to badthink was not to ban badthink but to air goodthink and the people would choose goodthink over badthink in the marketplace of ideas. The ACLU defended the Nazis all the way to the US Supreme Court.

    But the new left keeps telling us that “Nazis” are not entitled to have any opinion. Gen. Silveria tells the (non-existent) racists of the Air Force Academy not that he disagrees with their opinions but that they need to “get out” – their opinions are totally illegitimate and if you air them you will be expelled (and keep in mind that the Academy is a government run institution where the 1st Amendment is supposed to apply). I think this is because the left has lost confidence in their own ideas, just as happened in Communist countries. They know that they are never going to be able to sell their hateful ideas to the majority of whites so the only alternative is to suppress the speech of those that disagree with them.

    Exactly. Which is why separation is the answer. In a multiethnic state the stakes are always being raised, it’s always going to end in disaster or a police state.

    all we know for sure is that two friends drove to a third person’s house, the third person was murdered, and then the same two friends drove away. Now, one of the those two is testifying against the other one.
     
    One of those people is a tranny Mexican and the other is a White girl.

    We want the justice system to favor White girls over tranny Mexicans. If it's her word against his, he should lose every single time.

    Her testimony seemed to me like it was trying to establish mitigating circumstances for They. (Temporary insanity due to drugs).

    These defenses are rarely successful. If it can be shown that the criminal took the drugs voluntarily in order to loosen his inhibitions then it has the effect of aggravating and not lessening the crime. The only way this works if is someone slipped something in his drink or if it was an unknown side effect of a prescription drug or something like that.

    Pablo is not a Harvey Weinstein or an OJ who is going to be represented by some crack team of lawyers. No SJWs are going to come forward to help because he killed one of their own. They has a mediocre public defender who will raise some token objections and then they is going away for a long, long time. A judge has already pronounced they mentally fit. They don’t have a chance of getting off or even of pleading to a lesser charge.

    Not correct. The judge only ruled that there is sufficient (minimal) evidence to keep holding "they" for trial.

    Any insanity defense will probably be heard during or before the trial.

    BTW where was Gomez actually born? One vaguely recalls earlier posts in which he seemed interested in online discussions about the status of illegal immigrants from Central America (El Salvador)?

    Kiana Schmitt's role is at least rather disturbing even on her version of events which is likely self-serving.

    The result that I want is for truth and justice to be served. Maybe they both belong in jail?

    If the ends justify the means and we decide that some people should automatically be believed over others, then you can forget about justice. The goddess of Justice wears a blindfold for a good reason. This week your guys are in charge so white is favored over brown, but next week the other guys are in charge so it's the other way 'round. This raises the stakes on who is in charge WAY too high. This is why, in places like Kenya, elections are matters of life and death and people are willing to commit murder to make sure their side wins. In the old America, elections were low stakes affairs and it was good.

    We can care about “justice” when we have a White country, but we don’t.

    I've now read the article itself. Berkeleyside DOES go into more detail. Unfortunately the detail makes it clear that Schmitt acted partly as an accomplice, helping to clean up the crime scene, etc. She may have been acting under duress but she was clearly involved. We are getting her version of the story and it doesn't make her sound very good so the truth may be even worse.

    I also understand now why Pablo has been found to be sane - after he committed the crime he had enough presence of mind to hide the body, enlist Schmitt to help clean up the crime scene, threaten her if she did not go along with the plan, etc. Someone who is criminally insane (a high threshold) doesn't have that level of organizational skills.

    Given the testimony, I don't think that Pablo is getting off easy. He is going to be doing some hard time for a straight up murder.

    This hideous little creep should not end up merely “doing some hard time”.

    He should end up dead.

    given the killer’s ethnicity it may have involved some kind of “Aztec” re-enactment.

    Or maybe They was into some kind of cartelista Santa Muerte death cult?

     

    Indeed:

    Schmitt said Gomez talked passionately about a midnight ceremony Gomez had planned for the night ahead for Día de Los Reyes, or Three Kings Day. The ceremony is also called Epiphany.

    Gomez talked during the drive about having had visions and spiritual transformations, and described the upcoming ceremony as an important spiritual event in their Mexican indigenous culture.

     

    Later that night, at UC Berkeley’s Afro House student cooperative, Gomez brought a number of items to be used for the ceremony, including a bandana, a flower and a lighter. They laid the items out in a sort of altar, Schmitt recalled. …

    … Some of the friends, including Gomez, went “to smoke.” …

    About an hour later, Gomez appeared suddenly and was obviously “distressed,” Schmitt said. A scarf was draped over their body. They wore no shirt or pants, and were barefoot. …

    “They ran up to my car, motioned for me to open the door and then they got in,” she said, of Gomez. She noticed that Gomez’s hair, which had been waist-length the prior night, had been cut very short. When Schmitt called her friend by the name “Pablo,” Gomez answered, “I’m not Pablo. I’m Ray now,” according to her testimony.

     

    Schmitt said Gomez was “talking to themselves, muttering,” and told her, “Oh, there’s a woman in the sky. Can you see her?”
     
    Kipling's "The Stranger":

    The Stranger within my gate,
    He may be true or kind,
    But he does not talk my talk--
    I cannot feel his mind.
    I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
    But not the soul behind.

    The men of my own stock,
    They may do ill or well,
    But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
    They are used to the lies I tell;
    And we do not need interpreters
    When we go to buy or sell.

    The Stranger within my gates,
    He may be evil or good,
    But I cannot tell what powers control--
    What reasons sway his mood;
    Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
    Shall repossess his blood.

    The men of my own stock,
    Bitter bad they may be,
    But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
    And see the things I see;
    And whatever I think of them and their likes
    They think of the likes of me.

    This was my father's belief
    And this is also mine:
    Let the corn be all one sheaf--
    And the grapes be all one vine,
    Ere our children's teeth are set on edge
    By bitter bread and wine.

    “Are you Mrs. Gomez? I’m Emilie’s mom,” she said.

    “We don’t want to talk right now,” said a young man seated beside the woman, curtly.

    “I’m not asking any questions,” said Inman’s mother, shaken.
     
    What an idiot this young man was! This bleeding heart white lady approached the latinx killa's mom to do some weird "power-of-forgiveness-and-mother-love" shtick and form some bizarre female bond with her.

    This weird ritual of reconciliation could have saved the wacky latinx killa or at least reduced the latinx' sentence. Compare this to the South African case 5-10 years ago in which the white parents bonded with their daughter's killers, started some foundation and even hired their daughter's killers when they got out of jail!

    Yet the young latinx man decides he needs to "protect" the latinx killa's mom from the dead girl's mom and keeps them apart.

    Even the author of the article sees how stupid this move was. She noted that the white lady was "shaken" when her reconciliation/forgiveness/submission gesture was rejected.

    Obviously getting a relative murdered wasn’t enough to knock the scales off their eyes. Maybe diversity via kniferape will do it.

    RE: Latinx death cults....

    Adolfo de Jesús Constanzo (November 1, 1962 – May 6, 1989) was a Cuban-American serial killer, drug dealer, and cult leader of an infamous gang dubbed by the media as The Narcosatanists (Spanish: "Los Narcosatánicos").[1] His cult members nicknamed him The Godfather ("El Padrino"). He was reportedly responsible for the murder of Mark Kilroy, an American student killed in Matamoros in 1989, along with several other cult killings.
     

    Constanzo was born in Miami, Florida to Delia Aurora Gonzalez, a Cuban immigrant mother in 1962. She gave birth to Adolfo at the age of 15 and eventually had three children of different fathers. She moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico after her first husband died and remarried there. Constanzo was baptized Catholic and served as an altar boy, but also accompanied his mother on trips to Haiti to learn about Vodou.[2] The family returned to Miami in 1972 and his stepfather died soon after, leaving the family with some money. As a teenager, Constanzo became apprenticed to a local sorcerer and began to practice a religion called Palo Mayombe, which involves animal sacrifice. His mother remarried and his new stepfather was involved in the religion and drug dealing. Constanzo and his mother were arrested numerous times for minor crimes like theft, vandalism and shoplifting.
     

    As an adult, Constanzo moved to Mexico City and met the men who were to become his followers: Martin Quintana, Jorge Montes, and Omar Orea. They began to run a profitable business casting spells to bring good luck, which involved expensive ritual sacrifices of chickens, goats, snakes, zebras, and even lion cubs.[2] Many of his clients were rich drug dealers and hitmen who enjoyed the violence of Constanzo's "magical" displays. He also attracted other rich members of Mexican society, including several high-ranking corrupt policemen who introduced him to the city's powerful narcotics cartels.[2]
    Constanzo started to raid graveyards for human bones to put in his nganga, or cauldron, but before long he would need live human sacrifices instead of old bones. More than 20 victims, whose mutilated bodies were found in and around Mexico City,
     

    Constanzo began to believe that his magic spells, many of which he took from Palo Mayombe, were responsible for the success of the cartels and demanded to become a full business partner with one of the most powerful families he knew, the Calzadas. When his demand was rejected, seven family members disappeared. Their bodies turned up later with fingers, toes, ears, brains, and even (in one case) the spine missing.[3] Constanzo soon made friends with a new cartel, the Hernandez brothers. He also took up with a young woman named Sara Aldrete, who became the high priestess of the cult.
    In 1988, Constanzo moved to Rancho Santa Elena, a house in the desert. It is there where he carried out more sadistic ritual murders, sometimes of strangers and other times of rival drug dealers. He also used the ranch to store huge shipments of cocaine and marijuana.[3]
    On March 13, 1989, Constanzo's henchmen abducted a pre-med student, Mark Kilroy, from outside a Mexican bar and took him back to the ranch. Kilroy was a U.S. citizen who had been in Mexico on spring break. When Kilroy was brought to the ranch, Constanzo murdered him. Under pressure from Texan politicians, Mexican police initially picked up four of Constanzo's followers, including two of the Hernandez brothers.[4] Police quickly discovered the cult and that Constanzo had been responsible for Kilroy's death; he sought a "good"/superior brain for one of his ritual spells. Officers raided the ranch and discovered Constanzo's cauldron, which contained various items such as a dead black cat and a human brain.[4] Fifteen mutilated corpses were dug up at the ranch, one of them Kilroy's.[4] Officials said Kilroy was killed by Constanzo with a machete chop to the back of the neck when Kilroy tried to escape about 12 hours after being taken to the ranch.[5]

    Constanzo was a lot whiter than I imagined.

    This is one of the strange things about the Antifa Left. In the old America (remember Berkeley was the home of the "Free Speech" movement) it was believed that everyone, even literal Nazis (not Trump "Nazis" but people who actually wore swastikas and proclaimed themselves to be followers of A.H.) was entitled to free speech. The antidote to badthink was not to ban badthink but to air goodthink and the people would choose goodthink over badthink in the marketplace of ideas. The ACLU defended the Nazis all the way to the US Supreme Court.

    But the new left keeps telling us that "Nazis" are not entitled to have any opinion. Gen. Silveria tells the (non-existent) racists of the Air Force Academy not that he disagrees with their opinions but that they need to "get out" - their opinions are totally illegitimate and if you air them you will be expelled (and keep in mind that the Academy is a government run institution where the 1st Amendment is supposed to apply). I think this is because the left has lost confidence in their own ideas, just as happened in Communist countries. They know that they are never going to be able to sell their hateful ideas to the majority of whites so the only alternative is to suppress the speech of those that disagree with them.

    “Maybe THIS time when I point out the logical contradictions of the Leftist they’ll realise they’re wrong,” said the Boomer right before he was loaded on the boxcar by communists for a one way trip to a North Dakota gulag.

    When we go to buy or sell.

    The Stranger within my gates,
    He may be evil or good,
    But I cannot tell what powers control--
    What reasons sway his mood;
    Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
    Shall repossess his blood.

    The men of my own stock,
    Bitter bad they may be,
    But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
    And see the things I see;
    And whatever I think of them and their likes
    They think of the likes of me.

    This was my father's belief
    And this is also mine:
    Let the corn be all one sheaf--
    And the grapes be all one vine,
    Ere our children's teeth are set on edge
    By bitter bread and wine.

    “Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
    “Shall repossess his blood”

    That’s the couplet that sends a chill through me as I reflect on this grim story.

    RE: Latinx death cults....

    Adolfo de Jesús Constanzo (November 1, 1962 – May 6, 1989) was a Cuban-American serial killer, drug dealer, and cult leader of an infamous gang dubbed by the media as The Narcosatanists (Spanish: "Los Narcosatánicos").[1] His cult members nicknamed him The Godfather ("El Padrino"). He was reportedly responsible for the murder of Mark Kilroy, an American student killed in Matamoros in 1989, along with several other cult killings.
     

    Constanzo was born in Miami, Florida to Delia Aurora Gonzalez, a Cuban immigrant mother in 1962. She gave birth to Adolfo at the age of 15 and eventually had three children of different fathers. She moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico after her first husband died and remarried there. Constanzo was baptized Catholic and served as an altar boy, but also accompanied his mother on trips to Haiti to learn about Vodou.[2] The family returned to Miami in 1972 and his stepfather died soon after, leaving the family with some money. As a teenager, Constanzo became apprenticed to a local sorcerer and began to practice a religion called Palo Mayombe, which involves animal sacrifice. His mother remarried and his new stepfather was involved in the religion and drug dealing. Constanzo and his mother were arrested numerous times for minor crimes like theft, vandalism and shoplifting.
     

    As an adult, Constanzo moved to Mexico City and met the men who were to become his followers: Martin Quintana, Jorge Montes, and Omar Orea. They began to run a profitable business casting spells to bring good luck, which involved expensive ritual sacrifices of chickens, goats, snakes, zebras, and even lion cubs.[2] Many of his clients were rich drug dealers and hitmen who enjoyed the violence of Constanzo's "magical" displays. He also attracted other rich members of Mexican society, including several high-ranking corrupt policemen who introduced him to the city's powerful narcotics cartels.[2]
    Constanzo started to raid graveyards for human bones to put in his nganga, or cauldron, but before long he would need live human sacrifices instead of old bones. More than 20 victims, whose mutilated bodies were found in and around Mexico City,
     

    Constanzo began to believe that his magic spells, many of which he took from Palo Mayombe, were responsible for the success of the cartels and demanded to become a full business partner with one of the most powerful families he knew, the Calzadas. When his demand was rejected, seven family members disappeared. Their bodies turned up later with fingers, toes, ears, brains, and even (in one case) the spine missing.[3] Constanzo soon made friends with a new cartel, the Hernandez brothers. He also took up with a young woman named Sara Aldrete, who became the high priestess of the cult.
    In 1988, Constanzo moved to Rancho Santa Elena, a house in the desert. It is there where he carried out more sadistic ritual murders, sometimes of strangers and other times of rival drug dealers. He also used the ranch to store huge shipments of cocaine and marijuana.[3]
    On March 13, 1989, Constanzo's henchmen abducted a pre-med student, Mark Kilroy, from outside a Mexican bar and took him back to the ranch. Kilroy was a U.S. citizen who had been in Mexico on spring break. When Kilroy was brought to the ranch, Constanzo murdered him. Under pressure from Texan politicians, Mexican police initially picked up four of Constanzo's followers, including two of the Hernandez brothers.[4] Police quickly discovered the cult and that Constanzo had been responsible for Kilroy's death; he sought a "good"/superior brain for one of his ritual spells. Officers raided the ranch and discovered Constanzo's cauldron, which contained various items such as a dead black cat and a human brain.[4] Fifteen mutilated corpses were dug up at the ranch, one of them Kilroy's.[4] Officials said Kilroy was killed by Constanzo with a machete chop to the back of the neck when Kilroy tried to escape about 12 hours after being taken to the ranch.[5]

    A lot of heavyweight nonfiction writers live in Berkeley, such as Michael Lewis.

    I recommended the story to one of the mid-tier Berkeley writers as a How We Live Now case study. If there turns out to be a murder mystery twist it would make a good book. But even as a plain vanilla murder it would make a good 10k magazine article.

    There’s material here for a real page-turner, unquestionably, Steve. But it’s all so unremittingly grim; the testimony about the crime left me with the unsettled feeling I get from reading H.P.

    The Race to Solar-Power Africa
    American startups are competing to bring electricity to communities that remain off the grid.
    By Bill McKibben https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/06/26/the-race-to-solar-power-africa
    ________

    This is a revolution same as modern well drilling is for rural Africans. Most Africans live off the power grid. It never reached them. Now solar is coming to them mostly via American investors and companies (not Chinese ones) who think they can turn a profit. Now they can get enough crucial electric to:
    charge cell/smart phones / tablets
    refrigerate medicines
    power small LED TVs
    radios
    some lighting at night
    and more
    IOW not full blown access to electricity but life changing micro-access to electricity

    Technology just makes bad traits of a culture worse.
    The green revolution and antibiotics and European aid has meant catastrophic population growth in africa and accelerated decline of the environment.

    This is one of the strange things about the Antifa Left. In the old America (remember Berkeley was the home of the "Free Speech" movement) it was believed that everyone, even literal Nazis (not Trump "Nazis" but people who actually wore swastikas and proclaimed themselves to be followers of A.H.) was entitled to free speech. The antidote to badthink was not to ban badthink but to air goodthink and the people would choose goodthink over badthink in the marketplace of ideas. The ACLU defended the Nazis all the way to the US Supreme Court.

    But the new left keeps telling us that "Nazis" are not entitled to have any opinion. Gen. Silveria tells the (non-existent) racists of the Air Force Academy not that he disagrees with their opinions but that they need to "get out" - their opinions are totally illegitimate and if you air them you will be expelled (and keep in mind that the Academy is a government run institution where the 1st Amendment is supposed to apply). I think this is because the left has lost confidence in their own ideas, just as happened in Communist countries. They know that they are never going to be able to sell their hateful ideas to the majority of whites so the only alternative is to suppress the speech of those that disagree with them.

    The Berkeley “Free Speech Movement” was an advertising slogan. What they wanted was the prerogative of their people to engage in agitprop. Not for the free marketplace of ideas to flourish, or whatever.

    This story could almost be a skit on Saturday Night Live in some parallel universe.

    The insistence of people to use “they” reminds me of the scene in “Silence of the Lambs” where the insane killer repeatedly exhorts the woman down in the well “It puts the lotion on its skin.”

    Also like the absurdity of the requierd disclaimer in the Berkeley article explaining that “they” referes solely to Gomez. I’m curious how the reporter would have noted the difference between this person (Gomez), uniformly in the article “they” according to the note, and the need to use a pronoun to describe both Schmitt and Gomez (e.g., “they met outside before driving to Berkeley.”) I guess that the reporter squared the circle by avoiding pronoun use in such cases, referring instead to “Schmitt and Gomez,” or “Several people.”

    Finally, I love how the Epiphany – a Catholic holiday – is transmogrified into an “important spiritual event in their Mexican indigenous culture. Is this reverse cultural appropriation? European imperialism? Garden variety historical ignorance?

    Aw, she's just a poor 22-year old Berkeley SJW activist/student who through no fault of her own ended up in bad company (SJW activists). Of course she should get to dramatically signal a bit for picking her friends so unwisely. I wonder if she still fervently believes in Social Justice though? One can only hope.

    A senior UC Berkeley undergraduate student majoring in Rhetoric with a concentration in Public Discourse, and minoring in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies, I am most intrigued by the way people employ language as rhetorical force to perpetuate violence, inequality, and disenfranchisement of historically underrepresented communities. I am passionate about uplifting marginalized voices, and telling their stories authentically through multimedia and digital marketing.

    It is actually illegal to bring an emotional service dog into a restaurant, food market or any other place where dogs are not allowed due to the Health and Safety Codes. Genuine certified licensed physical service dogs are allowed into places that sell or serve food, but not emotional service dogs.

    When the ADA was written no one thought that every lonely spinster and nerd would start dragging fake service dogs around. But the ADA will be re written so ensure that emotional and fake service dogs stay out of food stores, restaurants, hospitals etc.

    Health and Safety laws are more important that lonely nerds and spinsters who can't go anywhere with out poopsi woopsi.

    Food stores and restaurants are stuck between the lonely nerds and spinsters and and people who want to enforce existing health laws.

    Unfortunately landlords are compelled to admit emotional service dogs. They are however allowed to require documentation from a real Dr that the owner is an emotional basket case that can't survive without poopsie woopsi. Landlords may also investigate if the Dr is a real MD or if the Dr signature is forged.

    As the law stands, emotional service dogs are supposed to stay at home to comfort the *&^%#** owner and the owner may drag it around everywhere but where food is sold or served. So emotional service dogs are not supposed to enter restaurants. Emotional service cats must be admitted to an apartment. But fortunately the no litter box allowed rule can still stand. So by using the no litter box rule, landlords can reject emotional service cats.

    One wonderful thing, some states have enacted strict laws against misrepresenting a dog as a service dog. It is considered a fraud. Only real, $20,000 certified trained physical service dogs are allowed in food and other establishments where dogs are prohibited. California has that law. I was quite surprised that sensible health inspectors and restaurant owners were able to prevail over the fruits and nuts that drag fake service dogs around everywhere. A lot of restaurants are posting that law right on the front doors to stop fake service and emotional support dogs and their fruit and nut owners from coming in.

    It's incredibly easy to distinguish a real service dog from a fake service dog. And almost all emotional support dogs are not trained service dogs. It would be easy to train them, but the lonely nerds and spinsters are too submissive to train the dog.


    When the critter owner sees that they go find a landlord who doesn't know the law and thinks he or she has to accept the emotional and fake service dogs. Re: cats. A landlord has to accept a service cat. But the no litter box rule still applies. So no fake service cats.

    When Schmitt called her friend by the name “Pablo,” Gomez answered, “I’m not Pablo. I’m Ray now,” according to her testimony.
     
    Now, you can call me Ray. Or you can call me They. Or you can call me ......................

    In a way, if this were a movie, wouldn’t it be sensible for the filmmaker to make this the turnng point of the film- cue music, pregnant pause, quizzical closeup expressions, maybe the girl’s feet turning a bit to show confusion and discomfort?

    Think about it- he’s literally taking on another Norman Bates moment of identity shift- announcing to the world another step in his abandonment of self and reality, now capable of anything. If the audience had no backstory, they would still instantly know something bad was about to happen. Unfortunately, this chick didn’t, or was too busy suppressing her instincts for the cause- a behavior that has become common that it really deserves its own term.

    It just hit me, he undoubtedly didn’t mean “Ray”, but “Rey”. He’s now a transformed Aztec king ready to offer sacrificies to unknown gods that have repossessed his blood. .

    These defenses are rarely successful. If it can be shown that the criminal took the drugs voluntarily in order to loosen his inhibitions then it has the effect of aggravating and not lessening the crime. The only way this works if is someone slipped something in his drink or if it was an unknown side effect of a prescription drug or something like that.

    Pablo is not a Harvey Weinstein or an OJ who is going to be represented by some crack team of lawyers. No SJWs are going to come forward to help because he killed one of their own. They has a mediocre public defender who will raise some token objections and then they is going away for a long, long time. A judge has already pronounced they mentally fit. They don't have a chance of getting off or even of pleading to a lesser charge. The taxpayers of California will be feeding they for a long, long time unless they gets killed in prison, of which there is a fair chance.

    A judge has already pronounced they mentally fit.

    Not correct. The judge only ruled that there is sufficient (minimal) evidence to keep holding “they” for trial.

    Any insanity defense will probably be heard during or before the trial.

    BTW where was Gomez actually born? One vaguely recalls earlier posts in which he seemed interested in online discussions about the status of illegal immigrants from Central America (El Salvador)?

    Kiana Schmitt’s role is at least rather disturbing even on her version of events which is likely self-serving.

    General Electric embraced “Ecomagination” environmental nonsense 12 years ago. The company just cut its dividend in half and its shares have been tanking.

    Meanwhile, European policy makers are trying to phase out the internal combustion engine and car makers are embracing electric as a result.

    What if the next global economic crisis comes from this environmental jihad?

    When Schmitt called her friend by the name “Pablo,” Gomez answered, “I’m not Pablo. I’m Ray now,” according to her testimony.
     
    Now, you can call me Ray. Or you can call me They. Or you can call me ......................

    RE: Latinx death cults....

    Adolfo de Jesús Constanzo (November 1, 1962 – May 6, 1989) was a Cuban-American serial killer, drug dealer, and cult leader of an infamous gang dubbed by the media as The Narcosatanists (Spanish: "Los Narcosatánicos").[1] His cult members nicknamed him The Godfather ("El Padrino"). He was reportedly responsible for the murder of Mark Kilroy, an American student killed in Matamoros in 1989, along with several other cult killings.
     

    Constanzo was born in Miami, Florida to Delia Aurora Gonzalez, a Cuban immigrant mother in 1962. She gave birth to Adolfo at the age of 15 and eventually had three children of different fathers. She moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico after her first husband died and remarried there. Constanzo was baptized Catholic and served as an altar boy, but also accompanied his mother on trips to Haiti to learn about Vodou.[2] The family returned to Miami in 1972 and his stepfather died soon after, leaving the family with some money. As a teenager, Constanzo became apprenticed to a local sorcerer and began to practice a religion called Palo Mayombe, which involves animal sacrifice. His mother remarried and his new stepfather was involved in the religion and drug dealing. Constanzo and his mother were arrested numerous times for minor crimes like theft, vandalism and shoplifting.
     

    As an adult, Constanzo moved to Mexico City and met the men who were to become his followers: Martin Quintana, Jorge Montes, and Omar Orea. They began to run a profitable business casting spells to bring good luck, which involved expensive ritual sacrifices of chickens, goats, snakes, zebras, and even lion cubs.[2] Many of his clients were rich drug dealers and hitmen who enjoyed the violence of Constanzo's "magical" displays. He also attracted other rich members of Mexican society, including several high-ranking corrupt policemen who introduced him to the city's powerful narcotics cartels.[2]
    Constanzo started to raid graveyards for human bones to put in his nganga, or cauldron, but before long he would need live human sacrifices instead of old bones. More than 20 victims, whose mutilated bodies were found in and around Mexico City,
     

    Constanzo began to believe that his magic spells, many of which he took from Palo Mayombe, were responsible for the success of the cartels and demanded to become a full business partner with one of the most powerful families he knew, the Calzadas. When his demand was rejected, seven family members disappeared. Their bodies turned up later with fingers, toes, ears, brains, and even (in one case) the spine missing.[3] Constanzo soon made friends with a new cartel, the Hernandez brothers. He also took up with a young woman named Sara Aldrete, who became the high priestess of the cult.
    In 1988, Constanzo moved to Rancho Santa Elena, a house in the desert. It is there where he carried out more sadistic ritual murders, sometimes of strangers and other times of rival drug dealers. He also used the ranch to store huge shipments of cocaine and marijuana.[3]
    On March 13, 1989, Constanzo's henchmen abducted a pre-med student, Mark Kilroy, from outside a Mexican bar and took him back to the ranch. Kilroy was a U.S. citizen who had been in Mexico on spring break. When Kilroy was brought to the ranch, Constanzo murdered him. Under pressure from Texan politicians, Mexican police initially picked up four of Constanzo's followers, including two of the Hernandez brothers.[4] Police quickly discovered the cult and that Constanzo had been responsible for Kilroy's death; he sought a "good"/superior brain for one of his ritual spells. Officers raided the ranch and discovered Constanzo's cauldron, which contained various items such as a dead black cat and a human brain.[4] Fifteen mutilated corpses were dug up at the ranch, one of them Kilroy's.[4] Officials said Kilroy was killed by Constanzo with a machete chop to the back of the neck when Kilroy tried to escape about 12 hours after being taken to the ranch.[5]

    I've now read the article itself. Berkeleyside DOES go into more detail. Unfortunately the detail makes it clear that Schmitt acted partly as an accomplice, helping to clean up the crime scene, etc. She may have been acting under duress but she was clearly involved. We are getting her version of the story and it doesn't make her sound very good so the truth may be even worse.

    I also understand now why Pablo has been found to be sane - after he committed the crime he had enough presence of mind to hide the body, enlist Schmitt to help clean up the crime scene, threaten her if she did not go along with the plan, etc. Someone who is criminally insane (a high threshold) doesn't have that level of organizational skills.

    Given the testimony, I don't think that Pablo is getting off easy. He is going to be doing some hard time for a straight up murder.

    I don’t think the article implies that Schmitt actually helped clean up.

    I do think it’s weird that she drove the perp away fron the scene, but it sounds like your typical weak willed female to me.

    I do think it’s not implausible that drugs (something more potent than cannabis) played a role in this incident though. “Ritual” in Berkeley is often synonymous with drug use.

    Unfortunately, the early '70s weren't the best time to introduce a subcompact getting 17 mpg.

    This Mazda didn't catch on, either. You'd expect better ideas from a company that shares its name with a light bulb.

    , @Jack D
    Their breakthrough is compression ignition for gasoline engines. As you may know, historically the explosion of the compressed fuel-air mixture in gas engines is set off by a spark while in diesels the fuel self-ignites due to the heat and pressure of being compressed. The latter gives you bigger explosions and more power but no one had ever figured out how to control the spontaneous detonation of gasoline (when it does it in an uncontrolled way we call it "engine knock" which is a bad thing).

    Mazda has figured out a way to do this (except that if you read the details closely, they are still using spark but what they do is after the spark has set off a mini-explosion of a pre-charge (thus creating a zone of high temperature and pressure) they squirt more raw gasoline into the cylinder and that 2nd charge is the one that spontaneously combusts.

    Why do you think the E. European Jews swarmed to S. Africa and Palestine starting in the 1880s.? They figured from strongholds at the north and south ends of Africa they could take over most of it after destroying the Turkish, French and British possessions. They got that far by the 1960s when the last of the colonists were forced out.

    Jews have a similar arrangement In America from their 3 strongholds, Los Angeles, Washington DC and NYC.

    In the New Yorker article they say the popular solar package that includes a 24" TV is what many Africans want. That if this TV is out of stock the sale cannot be made. The 24" TVs they include are the lowest wattage and most reliable that can be found. Include 4 LED lights for at night and ability to charge phones in that solar package. Payments can be two dollars a month. Solar systems get remotely shut off if payments are not made. And ultimately repossessed. However the default rate is only 2%.
    So while an American salivates after a 55 or 60 inch TV (about $1000) a huge step upward for a rural African family is a 24" TV.

    I wish I could be as optimistic.

    What seems likely to me is that the next form of technology to evolve in the direction of lower levels of organization skill being required will be ... international people smuggling.

    Formerly, people smugglers needed prearranged rendezvous, cash prepayment, and other ponderous bricks-and-mortar accouterments to conduct business. Widespread African smart phones will enable flash mob-like assembly of recruits, cashless financing and pinpoint logistics.

    The "benefits" will be endless...

    America has a very high rate of prison incarceration, but a very low rate of compulsory referral of the mentally ill to secure mental hospitals. Whilst the latter is a problem all over the developed world, it is particularly marked in the US. In the early Post-War period, a deranged fruitcake like Gomez would have been in a secure mental hospital, doped up to his eyeballs with anti-psychotic drugs.
    He would not have had the opportunity to attend Berkeley and go Beserkely !
    Pro-active internment of the violently deranged in mental hospitals used to keep a lot of us civilians safe.

    These defenses are rarely successful. If it can be shown that the criminal took the drugs voluntarily in order to loosen his inhibitions then it has the effect of aggravating and not lessening the crime. The only way this works if is someone slipped something in his drink or if it was an unknown side effect of a prescription drug or something like that.

    Pablo is not a Harvey Weinstein or an OJ who is going to be represented by some crack team of lawyers. No SJWs are going to come forward to help because he killed one of their own. They has a mediocre public defender who will raise some token objections and then they is going away for a long, long time. A judge has already pronounced they mentally fit. They don't have a chance of getting off or even of pleading to a lesser charge. The taxpayers of California will be feeding they for a long, long time unless they gets killed in prison, of which there is a fair chance.

    American startups are competing to bring electricity to communities that remain off the grid.

    ________

    This is a revolution same as modern well drilling is for rural Africans. Most Africans live off the power grid. It never reached them. Now solar is coming to them mostly via American investors and companies (not Chinese ones) who think they can turn a profit. Now they can get enough crucial electric to:
    charge cell/smart phones / tablets
    refrigerate medicines
    power small LED TVs
    radios
    some lighting at night
    and more
    IOW not full blown access to electricity but life changing micro-access to electricity

    Now solar is coming to them mostly via American investors and companies (not Chinese ones) who think they can turn a profit.

    Please explain how American investors and companies (not Chinese ones) are supposed to profit on this.

    Pablo Gomez aka “They” will spend about five years in prison, if that, and in a women’s prison.

    The prosecutor probably shares They’s hate hate hate for White people, this is Beserkley after all and the parents are Nice White cucks. A more sane set of parents would set about getting revenge in a way not to get caught. But instead they are cucking. The least you can ask is HATE for the family that killed your own.

    The prosecutor will make some deal with “they” and “they” will spend ten years (reality: five for good behavior) in some slam and be out in early release courtesy of Jerry Brown’s prison reform bill in four or even three.

    There is a reason there was supposedly impartial justice by the King — to prevent blood feuds from spiraling out of control and wrecking great portions of the countryside. It wasn’t an excess of virtue on the Kings; just common good sense in ruling effectively. Its why most effective rulers outside blood soaked lunatics like Mao, Hitler, and Stalin had relatively sane and fair justice systems for ordinary crimes involving ordinary people.

    BECAUSE: Reality check, White life is cheap and valued at less than nothing, “They” will pay no real price for taking it. Eventually non-cuck families will simply take revenge; and form various revenge cartels which is how the Mafia got started in Sicily. When the State does not punish nor protect others will.

    The Bart subway was the reason so many bought homes in Alameda It was going to be so wonderful.
    A short walk from the job in San Francisco or an Alameda town to the nice, clean subway and then a short walk or drive home.

The 24" TVs they include are the lowest wattage and most reliable that can be found. Include 4 LED lights for at night and ability to charge phones in that solar package. Payments can be two dollars a month. Solar systems get remotely shut off if payments are not made. And ultimately repossessed. However the default rate is only 2%.
    So while an American salivates after a 55 or 60 inch TV (about $1000) a huge step upward for a rural African family is a 24" TV.

    Sounds like a big leap upwards in standard of living from no electricity to a TV, lights, and a phone. All without being on the power grid.

    What is your priority list when you get increasing amounts of electricity from improving solar panels, after TV/lights/phone?

    Next comes simple rotary fans for cooling, I would guess.

    Then what? Washing machine? Refrigerator? Microwave?

    A washing machine isn't much good without dependable running water, and that's not a given in many areas.

    I agree that even a few hours a day of electricity is not at all trivial. It would make a significant difference in many people's lives.

    In the United States, before the REA electrified every farm in the US, there was the Jacobs Wind Electric Co. Before and right after WWII they made a line of wind generators and a complete line of appliances that ran on the DC voltages the systems generated. It is very interesting to look through catalogs of what was offered in those days. They never had TVs, but radios, vacuum cleaners, fans, refrigerators, ice cream makers, you name it were made. All now rare because the REA made farmers remove and destroy the DC systems before putting in the AC.

    Washing machines are of little use without running water. And refrigerators, with solar are possible but ammonia units using kerosene or propane work just as well.

    Now solar is coming to them mostly via American investors and companies (not Chinese ones) who think they can turn a profit.
    Please explain how American investors and companies (not Chinese ones) are supposed to profit on this.
     
    Not a huge profit by any means but this is not their objective. Read or skim the article. The numbers look like they add up. These solar electrification efforts are do-gooder efforts but are not handouts. They just want enough profits to stay in business and to slowly expand. They are not ditzy, lefty NGOs full of trust funders.

    Remember the Wankel rotary? That did take place, and Mazda bet the farm on it.

    Unfortunately, the early '70s weren't the best time to introduce a subcompact getting 17 mpg.

    By the way, I don't see any references in this article to whether the star witness -- who, let us not forget, according to her own testimony drove the murderer to his murder in her own car and drove him away -- is badly scarred.

    Is she the only surviving witness that Pablo was the one wielding the knife?

    Being a stereotypist, it would seem implausible to me that a coed would butcher a woman. But then her testimony doesn't sound that plausible either, other than there's a dead body. So somebody had to do it, and more likely the male Berkeley student than the female Berkeley student, even if students at California's top flagship public university don't actually murder people very often at all.

    So, if the prosecution's chief witness is all scarred up facially, then I would assume her story is valid because coeds don't disfigure themselves very often.

    On the other hand, if her wounds had proved superficial and not at all damaging to her looks ... well, all we know for sure is that two friends drove to a third person's house, the third person was murdered, and then the same two friends drove away. Now, one of the those two is testifying against the other one.

    This sort of thing happens a fair bit, from what i’ve been told.
    Female psychopath murders husband, teenage son takes the blame, says he’was defending mom from Domestic Violemce, Court rules no case to answer.
    Detectives aren’t stupid, so they go over to mom’s house to spitroast her anytime they like for the next 6 months, until they find another one.
    They’s case sounds similar.

    Some forms of technology evolve in the direction of lower levels of organizational skills being required to keep them running. An old fashioned land line telephone system was something Americans did well, but Italians and Russians were bad at, much less third worlders. Cell phone systems require less social capital.

    Cheap solar panels that can be put on the roof of your shack and generate enough juice to keep your smartphone charged sound like something Africans can handle, and will be a big boost in their standard of living.

    I wish I could be as optimistic.

    What seems likely to me is that the next form of technology to evolve in the direction of lower levels of organization skill being required will be … international people smuggling.

    Formerly, people smugglers needed prearranged rendezvous, cash prepayment, and other ponderous bricks-and-mortar accouterments to conduct business. Widespread African smart phones will enable flash mob-like assembly of recruits, cashless financing and pinpoint logistics.

    The “benefits” will be endless…

    The result that I want is for truth and justice to be served. Maybe they both belong in jail?

    If the ends justify the means and we decide that some people should automatically be believed over others, then you can forget about justice. The goddess of Justice wears a blindfold for a good reason. This week your guys are in charge so white is favored over brown, but next week the other guys are in charge so it's the other way 'round. This raises the stakes on who is in charge WAY too high. This is why, in places like Kenya, elections are matters of life and death and people are willing to commit murder to make sure their side wins. In the old America, elections were low stakes affairs and it was good.

    On instinct, habit and principle, I agree with what you write. As you acknowledge by the use of the past tense, however, the world where those instincts, habits and principles work may now be past. When most everyone acted on altruism and fair play, you had “old America”. When only a subgroup acts on altruism and fair play while everyone else is self-seeking, you have The Current Year. You and I didn’t end the old way, but we do get to live with the result. In the 27 year old‘s case, he gets to live with the result even longer, so his assessment of it is necessarily less clouded by nostalgia.

    It gives me no pleasure to say that this may be a case where the younger apprehend the situation better than the older. The courts, elections and culture have been pulling the blindfold from the goddess of Justice for a while now. For eight of the past nine years the other guys have been in charge and were unapologetic in their favoritism. It appears that certain people here are already willing to commit murder to make sure their side wins. Elections are already becoming high-stakes through no wish of our own.

    If it is going to be be all identity politics all the time, or as 27 year old puts it, “who-whom all the way down”, then it’s about time time we start playing this high-stakes game like it matters. Because it does. And we’re the only ones who haven’t figured it out yet.

    Especially because internal combustion auto engines are progressing steadily with turbos and hybrids and some harder to explain in one word improvements that are all improving the power vs. MPG tradeoff. Maza is promising a major engine breakthrough in two years, although that hasn't gone through the formality of taking place yet.

    Their breakthrough is compression ignition for gasoline engines. As you may know, historically the explosion of the compressed fuel-air mixture in gas engines is set off by a spark while in diesels the fuel self-ignites due to the heat and pressure of being compressed. The latter gives you bigger explosions and more power but no one had ever figured out how to control the spontaneous detonation of gasoline (when it does it in an uncontrolled way we call it “engine knock” which is a bad thing).

    Mazda has figured out a way to do this (except that if you read the details closely, they are still using spark but what they do is after the spark has set off a mini-explosion of a pre-charge (thus creating a zone of high temperature and pressure) they squirt more raw gasoline into the cylinder and that 2nd charge is the one that spontaneously combusts.

    A senior UC Berkeley undergraduate student majoring in Rhetoric with a concentration in Public Discourse, and minoring in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies, I am most intrigued by the way people employ language as rhetorical force to perpetuate violence, inequality, and disenfranchisement of historically underrepresented communities.

    HE ATTENDED BERKELEY AND WENT BESERKELY

    America has a very high rate of prison incarceration, but a very low rate of compulsory referral of the mentally ill to secure mental hospitals. Whilst the latter is a problem all over the developed world, it is particularly marked in the US. In the early Post-War period, a deranged fruitcake like Gomez would have been in a secure mental hospital, doped up to his eyeballs with anti-psychotic drugs.
    He would not have had the opportunity to attend Berkeley and go Beserkely !
    Pro-active internment of the violently deranged in mental hospitals used to keep a lot of us civilians safe.

    Always, always remember it was judges at the behest of ACLU ADL AJC and an organization called something like NAPA ???? that filed and won the lawsuits to evict the mentally ill from their asylums.

    That’s how our country’s laws are made. Judges doing exactly what they want, no different from 4,000 BC when the biggest baddest guy in the clan appointed himself judge.

    They is plural. Is that for his double or triple sex orientation? His pronoun of choice shout be it. Epiphany is a standard Christian religious holiday. It’s been around for about 1,7 000 years. There is nothing Mexican pagan indian about it.

    Stop! I’ve heard this story before. Just as soon as Africa gets new dams built / new cultivars bred / new continental fiber optic laid /[insert fashionable infrastructure project here] the economic powerhouse that Africa was always waiting to be will be unleashed! Yet, somehow, it never quite comes to pass. At most, Africa ends up with more people in the same old squalor. Contractors and local strongmen get richer. Western taxpayers get a few billion dollars poorer.
     
    As soon as the pesky Whites and Western Civilization are gone, Africa will belong to either the Jews or Chinese. Neither group will have the slightest qualms about moving the schwartza off of the good land if it suits them. White guilt over colonialism is one of the only reasons Africa is still full of Africans.

    Why do you think the E. European Jews swarmed to S. Africa and Palestine starting in the 1880s.? They figured from strongholds at the north and south ends of Africa they could take over most of it after destroying the Turkish, French and British possessions. They got that far by the 1960s when the last of the colonists were forced out.

    Jews have a similar arrangement In America from their 3 strongholds, Los Angeles, Washington DC and NYC.

    Pablo Gomez aka "They" will spend about five years in prison, if that, and in a women's prison.

    The prosecutor probably shares They's hate hate hate for White people, this is Beserkley after all and the parents are Nice White cucks. A more sane set of parents would set about getting revenge in a way not to get caught. But instead they are cucking. The least you can ask is HATE for the family that killed your own.

    The prosecutor will make some deal with "they" and "they" will spend ten years (reality: five for good behavior) in some slam and be out in early release courtesy of Jerry Brown's prison reform bill in four or even three.

    There is a reason there was supposedly impartial justice by the King -- to prevent blood feuds from spiraling out of control and wrecking great portions of the countryside. It wasn't an excess of virtue on the Kings; just common good sense in ruling effectively. Its why most effective rulers outside blood soaked lunatics like Mao, Hitler, and Stalin had relatively sane and fair justice systems for ordinary crimes involving ordinary people.

    BECAUSE: Reality check, White life is cheap and valued at less than nothing, "They" will pay no real price for taking it. Eventually non-cuck families will simply take revenge; and form various revenge cartels which is how the Mafia got started in Sicily. When the State does not punish nor protect others will.

    The Prosecutor works fro Alameda County, not the city of Berkley. Except for black and liberal infested Oakland, Pittsburg, Berkley and Richmond, Alameda is a law and order county. The rest of the county has been abused by the sewage overflow from Oakland, Richmond and Pittsburg and is pretty tough on crime.

    The Bart subway was the reason so many bought homes in Alameda It was going to be so wonderful.
    A short walk from the job in San Francisco or an Alameda town to the nice, clean subway and then a short walk or drive home.

    Now that lovely subway is infested with feral blacks going from their criminal court hearings and parole offices in Oakland to their hoes in Pittsburgh. So the taxpaying Whites who are threatened and harassed by the sewage overflow on BART.

    Give her a break. The poor girl is basically a child, and she was nearly murdered with a knife by someone she thought was her friend. If she wants to bring a little dog into restaurants because of that trauma, I see no problem.

    It is actually illegal to bring an emotional service dog into a restaurant, food market or any other place where dogs are not allowed due to the Health and Safety Codes. Genuine certified licensed physical service dogs are allowed into places that sell or serve food, but not emotional service dogs.

    When the ADA was written no one thought that every lonely spinster and nerd would start dragging fake service dogs around. But the ADA will be re written so ensure that emotional and fake service dogs stay out of food stores, restaurants, hospitals etc.

    Health and Safety laws are more important that lonely nerds and spinsters who can’t go anywhere with out poopsi woopsi.

    Food stores and restaurants are stuck between the lonely nerds and spinsters and and people who want to enforce existing health laws.

    Unfortunately landlords are compelled to admit emotional service dogs. They are however allowed to require documentation from a real Dr that the owner is an emotional basket case that can’t survive without poopsie woopsi. Landlords may also investigate if the Dr is a real MD or if the Dr signature is forged.

    As the law stands, emotional service dogs are supposed to stay at home to comfort the *&^%#** owner and the owner may drag it around everywhere but where food is sold or served. So emotional service dogs are not supposed to enter restaurants. Emotional service cats must be admitted to an apartment. But fortunately the no litter box allowed rule can still stand. So by using the no litter box rule, landlords can reject emotional service cats.

    One wonderful thing, some states have enacted strict laws against misrepresenting a dog as a service dog. It is considered a fraud. Only real, $20,000 certified trained physical service dogs are allowed in food and other establishments where dogs are prohibited. California has that law. I was quite surprised that sensible health inspectors and restaurant owners were able to prevail over the fruits and nuts that drag fake service dogs around everywhere. A lot of restaurants are posting that law right on the front doors to stop fake service and emotional support dogs and their fruit and nut owners from coming in.

    It’s incredibly easy to distinguish a real service dog from a fake service dog. And almost all emotional support dogs are not trained service dogs. It would be easy to train them, but the lonely nerds and spinsters are too submissive to train the dog.

    When the critter owner sees that they go find a landlord who doesn’t know the law and thinks he or she has to accept the emotional and fake service dogs. Re: cats. A landlord has to accept a service cat. But the no litter box rule still applies. So no fake service cats.

    HE ATTENDED BERKELEY AND WENT BESERKELY

    America has a very high rate of prison incarceration, but a very low rate of compulsory referral of the mentally ill to secure mental hospitals. Whilst the latter is a problem all over the developed world, it is particularly marked in the US. In the early Post-War period, a deranged fruitcake like Gomez would have been in a secure mental hospital, doped up to his eyeballs with anti-psychotic drugs.
    He would not have had the opportunity to attend Berkeley and go Beserkely !
    Pro-active internment of the violently deranged in mental hospitals used to keep a lot of us civilians safe.

    Keeping the deranged locked up was expensive. Then, in the 60s it became fashionable to believe that it was the deranged who were actually the sane ones and the more-or-less normal who were really the disturbed ones (cf. R.D. Laing). So, we closed down the asylums and let the poor mentally ills souls wander among us, often homeless. Oh, brave new world!

And that is before adding in the ultimately incalculable cost of the extra murders caused by letting psychos roam about freely.

    Why do you think the E. European Jews swarmed to S. Africa and Palestine starting in the 1880s.? They figured from strongholds at the north and south ends of Africa they could take over most of it after destroying the Turkish, French and British possessions. They got that far by the 1960s when the last of the colonists were forced out.

    Jews have a similar arrangement In America from their 3 strongholds, Los Angeles, Washington DC and NYC.

    South Africa had, at peak, maybe 75,000 Jews (out of a total population of 55 million people) some of whom have now decamped for Israel or elsewhere. So I would not exactly call this a swarm. Nor am I expecting a army of Yids to stream out of their coastal strongholds and overtake Fargo. You can’t even get a good corned beef sandwich in Fargo.

    “Are you Mrs. Gomez? I’m Emilie’s mom,” she said.

    “We don’t want to talk right now,” said a young man seated beside the woman, curtly.

    “I’m not asking any questions,” said Inman’s mother, shaken.
     
    What an idiot this young man was! This bleeding heart white lady approached the latinx killa's mom to do some weird "power-of-forgiveness-and-mother-love" shtick and form some bizarre female bond with her.

    This weird ritual of reconciliation could have saved the wacky latinx killa or at least reduced the latinx' sentence. Compare this to the South African case 5-10 years ago in which the white parents bonded with their daughter's killers, started some foundation and even hired their daughter's killers when they got out of jail!

    Yet the young latinx man decides he needs to "protect" the latinx killa's mom from the dead girl's mom and keeps them apart.

    Even the author of the article sees how stupid this move was. She noted that the white lady was "shaken" when her reconciliation/forgiveness/submission gesture was rejected.

    Yet the young latinx man decides he needs to “protect” the latinx killa’s mom from the dead girl’s mom and keeps them apart.

    In his defense, the only reasonable conclusion at that point would be that white mom was heading over to knife they’s mom.

    This is one of the strange things about the Antifa Left. In the old America (remember Berkeley was the home of the "Free Speech" movement) it was believed that everyone, even literal Nazis (not Trump "Nazis" but people who actually wore swastikas and proclaimed themselves to be followers of A.H.) was entitled to free speech. The antidote to badthink was not to ban badthink but to air goodthink and the people would choose goodthink over badthink in the marketplace of ideas. The ACLU defended the Nazis all the way to the US Supreme Court.

    But the new left keeps telling us that "Nazis" are not entitled to have any opinion. Gen. Silveria tells the (non-existent) racists of the Air Force Academy not that he disagrees with their opinions but that they need to "get out" - their opinions are totally illegitimate and if you air them you will be expelled (and keep in mind that the Academy is a government run institution where the 1st Amendment is supposed to apply). I think this is because the left has lost confidence in their own ideas, just as happened in Communist countries. They know that they are never going to be able to sell their hateful ideas to the majority of whites so the only alternative is to suppress the speech of those that disagree with them.

    Outside of They’s momentary lapse with the knife, I’m sure Lt. General Silveria would have considered Them a fine addition to the Air Force Academy. And if other cadets couldn’t treat Them with dignity and respect, then they need to get out.

    On instinct, habit and principle, I agree with what you write. As you acknowledge by the use of the past tense, however, the world where those instincts, habits and principles work may now be past. When most everyone acted on altruism and fair play, you had "old America". When only a subgroup acts on altruism and fair play while everyone else is self-seeking, you have The Current Year. You and I didn't end the old way, but we do get to live with the result. In the 27 year old's case, he gets to live with the result even longer, so his assessment of it is necessarily less clouded by nostalgia.

    It gives me no pleasure to say that this may be a case where the younger apprehend the situation better than the older. The courts, elections and culture have been pulling the blindfold from the goddess of Justice for a while now. For eight of the past nine years the other guys have been in charge and were unapologetic in their favoritism. It appears that certain people here are already willing to commit murder to make sure their side wins. Elections are already becoming high-stakes through no wish of our own.

    If it is going to be be all identity politics all the time, or as 27 year old puts it, "who-whom all the way down", then it's about time time we start playing this high-stakes game like it matters. Because it does. And we're the only ones who haven't figured it out yet.

    A niece of mine actually is a paid up hardworking member of BLM. She's White of course. Her parents of course are ultra left baby boomers. Hopefully, she'll never have children neither will her sister or cousins who are as left as she They are products of the finest * and most expensive private grade and high schools in the country.

    Maybe if Mommie had made them take a city bus home from their all White and Asian private schools they would have seen how the BLM crowd really is. But Mommie drove them to and from school every day of their lives. So they never saw blacks. They only got the propaganda.

    That's one advantage of raising White kids in a city. If they take the city buses, they soon learn what blacks really are. It's not necessary for them to be robbed or assaulted Just the howling and yowling and filthy language are enough.

    Is she the only surviving witness that Pablo was the one wielding the knife?

    Being a stereotypist, it would seem implausible to me that a coed would butcher a woman. But then her testimony doesn't sound that plausible either, other than there's a dead body. So somebody had to do it, and more likely the male Berkeley student than the female Berkeley student, even if students at California's top flagship public university don't actually murder people very often at all.

    So, if the prosecution's chief witness is all scarred up facially, then I would assume her story is valid because coeds don't disfigure themselves very often.

    On the other hand, if her wounds had proved superficial and not at all damaging to her looks ... well, all we know for sure is that two friends drove to a third person's house, the third person was murdered, and then the same two friends drove away. Now, one of the those two is testifying against the other one.

    Yeah, I remember reading a murder mystery a while back that concerned a murderess covering her tracks by pretending that the guy she killed attacked her…..with acid. This being fiction, the murderess had enough will-to-power to actually splash acid on herself, badly disfiguring one side of her face.She almost got away with it, as the police simply could not imagine a woman willingly doing that to herself.

So, we closed down the asylums and let the poor mentally ills souls wander among us, often homeless. Oh, brave new world!

    “Keeping the deranged locked up was expensive.”

    Wellllll … it wasn’t cheap, but I would argue that the bloated and ineffective network of services that supposedly do the same job now (halfway houses, social workers, homeless shelters, etc.) are even more expensive. And that is before adding in the ultimately incalculable cost of the extra murders caused by letting psychos roam about freely.

    Not to mention what is turning out to be a new cost-item: sterilizing the pavement, as the City of San Diego has had to do in response to the current hepatitis outbreak.

    Seattle has a huge homeless problem. The city claims there are 12,000 homeless in Seattle. There are probably more, so let's double that sum to 24,000 which is more realistic.

    The city has a budget of 200 million a year to provide services and think about starting a conversation about solutions to the homeless problem . 200 million? The city could buy everyone of the homelsess a small house or condo in a less expensive area of Washington state.

    Of course if Paul Allan would stop building ultra expensive lego land doll house type condo complexes and Microsoft would stop importing foreigners and the do gooders would stop importing Somalias and other dreck, Seattle might not have a homeless problem.

    given the killer’s ethnicity it may have involved some kind of “Aztec” re-enactment.
     
    Or maybe They was into some kind of cartelista Santa Muerte death cult?

    Pablo is quite simply mestizo detritus that the whiter Spanish elites of México vomited up north of the Rio Grande.

    Were we living in a normal, pre-1965 America of fairly homogenous Whites and not the current dystopian hellhole of a (((country))) controlled by those who want us dead, Pablo would’ve been kicked back to his hometown favela LONG AGO.

    It is sickening to see such genetic garbage, invited into to OUR NATION by the Self-Chosen tribe of criminal elites, continually used as biological weapons of demographic and racial warfare against brainwashed and helpless White women.

    It was mostly White male Judges and attorneys who made the laws that gave illegal hispanic immigrants permission to enter illegally and stay illegally. Those court rulings and laws were made back when there were few women attorneys and very, very few women judges even local muni judges.

    Another fake service critter exposed. If lonely spinsters can’t function without a fake service critter, let them take a valium

    Woman kicked off flight after her service pig became too rowdy
    The woman was given her marching orders after her havoc-wreaking hog began walking up and down the aisles. Even attempts to strap it to an arm rest failed to settle the farmyard animal on the flight from Connecticut.

    It gives me no pleasure to say that this may be a case where the younger apprehend the situation better than the older.

    I have a lot of young nieces and nephews. Almost all of them SJWs. Are there really that many young people who are race realists?

    A niece of mine actually is a paid up hardworking member of BLM. She’s White of course. Her parents of course are ultra left baby boomers. Hopefully, she’ll never have children neither will her sister or cousins who are as left as she They are products of the finest * and most expensive private grade and high schools in the country.

    Maybe if Mommie had made them take a city bus home from their all White and Asian private schools they would have seen how the BLM crowd really is. But Mommie drove them to and from school every day of their lives. So they never saw blacks. They only got the propaganda.

    That’s one advantage of raising White kids in a city. If they take the city buses, they soon learn what blacks really are. It’s not necessary for them to be robbed or assaulted Just the howling and yowling and filthy language are enough.

    *what the schools claim.

    I highly doubt it's a real service dog. the service dog vest was bought off the internet. Were I the Judge in the case I'd make her provide valid, real, not fraudulent documentation that the mutt's a real service dog. His service dog vest is a fake from the internet.

    There is a big anti fake service dog movement building. Some states have enacted laws deeming presenting a dog as a service dog is fraud and either a misdeameanor or a felony. Thanks be to God and health inspectors

    Especially if it didn’t behave as an ordinary reasonably trained dog would.

    Judges schedule bathroom recesses like 1st grade teachers, about every 2 & 1/2 hours. What if poopsie woopsie wasn’t trained and peed, pooped and bit people?

    Or what if poopsie woopsie needed to be walked? Would she come back to court with a filled poop bag?

    I repeat my proposition that we should elevate *fuck off* to the status of a pronoun and then use it freely.

    Well, freely in contexts like this.

    It could be bowdlerised to f*ck *ff.

    My sister thinks it should be fucked up. As in, I’m your waiter, fucked up, would you like a drink before ordering?

    Who knows, maybe he, she, or they will enjoy the intimate attentions that he, she, or they will experience in The California prison system.

    As I recall, that’s what happened to Richard Speck–he had the time of his life in prison, engaging in drug use and gay orgies. He even made a video of himself laughing about it and taunting his victims’ families.

    Compare this to the South African case 5-10 years ago in which the white parents bonded with their daughter’s killers, started some foundation and even hired their daughter’s killers when they got out of jail!
     
    Over 20 years ago.

    Amy Biehl, right?

    Her parents branded a wine in her name called simply AMY.
