Speaking of Fake News, from the Washington Post:

NFL player’s house vandalized with ‘Go back to Africa,’ ‘KKK’ and a swastika written on walls

By Cindy Boren and Marissa Payne December 8

Nikita Whitlock called for an end to “oppression, violence, racism, hatred” the day after vandals scrawled racist messages on the walls of his Bergen County, N.J., apartment during a break-in.

Whitlock, a 25-year-old running back for the New York Giants, found “KKK,” “Go back to Africa,” “f—— n—–” and a swastika were left behind in his basement apartment while he, his wife and two young children were out Tuesday evening.

… He shared images of the break-in, the second at his home since Thanksgiving, on Instagram (they are disturbing and can be seen here) and wrote: “Racism is real and instead of close to home this time they came inside. My family is safe but we are saddened by the hate. Thanks to the Moonachie Police Department for all of your help! #Haters #Racism #AllLivesMatter #BlackLivesMatter #SidelineRacism.”

… The burglars took jewelry and video game systems while leaving behind other electronics. …

Police continue to investigate the incident as well as the other incident, which occurred over the Thanksgiving weekend. The Whitlocks say they have been planning to move even before the first break-in. This one raises the level of insecurity that a burglary leaves in victims to a new level, though.

“It’s about to be 2017,” Nikita Whitlock said. “Oppression, violence, racism, hatred, violence — there’s no need for that.”

Whitlock’s teammate Victor Cruz agreed when asked about the incident by reporters on Thursday, calling it “a direct reflection of how this country’s being run” and pointing to the election of Donald Trump as a possible catalyst.

“I think there’s a specific mindset that comes with supporting a guy like Donald Trump and supporting what he stands for, and there’s a certain type of person that comes with that,” Cruz said (via the New York Daily News). “I’m not sure that person is always a positive-minded person.”

Cruz added: “As a minority you have to be careful.” …

Trump has rejected claims that he doesn’t value all Americans while at times embracing wide support from the alt-right movement during his campaign.

Trump appeared to change his tune after the election, however, when he told the New York Times in an interview in late November that he “disavows the group,” which puts white nationalism and sexism at the core of its ideology.

“It’s not a group I want to energize, and if they are energized, I want to look into it and find out why,” he said, according Michael Grynbaum, one of the Times reporters in the room.

Racist graffiti at Giants player’s home investigated as hate crime
Andrew Wyrich , Staff Writer @AndrewWyrich 7:14 p.m. EST December 8,

“KKK,” “Trump,” and swastikas were drawn on walls in Whitlock’s home after the Tuesday night break-in.

Moonachie Police are investigating the incident

MOONACHIE — Shortly after Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock recounted to The Record the feelings of disappointment and confusion that have emerged since his home was broken into on Tuesday night and defaced with several racially charged epithets, local police announced they are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

Whitlock returned home with his family on Tuesday night and found “KKK,” three swastikas and other racist language scrawled onto the walls of home. The largest word, “Trump,” was also written in marker on the wall leading up his staircase.

Cruz links Giants teammate’s break-in to Trump election
Tara Sullivan , Sports Columnist, @Record_Tara 9:28 p.m. EST December 8, 2016

Nikita Whitlock hasn’t really been around the Giants much this NFL season, a foot injury putting him on injured reserve before games even got under way. But the vandalism, including racist graffiti, and burglary of Whitlock’s Moonachie home sent shock waves through the Giants’ locker room Thursday, with teammates expressing concern, support and anger over what happened.

No one was more vehement than veteran wide receiver Victor Cruz, the Paterson native who did not hold back about why he believes the perpetrator or perpetrators felt emboldened to do what they did, tying the mind-set directly to the election of Donald Trump as our next president.

“If you listen to anything that [Trump] says, if you listen to the comments that’s he’s made about women, or the comments he’s made about minorities or the comments he’s made about people that he feels are somewhat of lesser value, they haven’t been positive,” Cruz said after the Giants practiced Thursday.

“They haven’t been for us, haven’t been for minorities. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think I’ve heard anything he’s said that benefits us or that helps us. When you have someone that embodies those mind-sets and those opinions and someone else supports those opinions you can’t think of anything positive about that. You can’t think of anything that person that follows Donald Trump that they’re going to do something positive. And for someone to vandalize someone’s house and write Trump’s name or whatever they wrote on the walls is just proving that exact fact, that people that may follow him aren’t necessarily the most positive people in our communities.” …

Cruz expressed similar concern, but couldn’t hold back his anger.

“I think it’s definitely a direct reflection of how this country’s being run,” he said, “of how this country is reacting to some of the decisions and some of the ways that this country is being run, things that are being said at the helm of this country and at the helm of our day-to-day lives. Our day-to-day, from social media all the way up to the White House, these are things that are being spoken of and being talked about on a daily basis, the good and the bad. Moreso the bad at this point right now because that’s all we have to work with. It’s just an unfortunate situation we’re going through right now.

“I think there’s a specific mind-set that comes with supporting a guy like Donald Trump and supporting what he stands for,” he said. “There’s a certain type of person that comes with that. And I’m not sure that person is always a positive-minded person if you know what I mean.”

ESPN mentions that Whitlock claims that the Trumpite burglars stole his jewelry.

From the comments to the first article in NewJersey.com:

Jeffrey XXX

It’s very curious that Nikita Whitlock.. who has been cut from 2 different teams (CIN, DAL) practice squads.. who literally has 0 offensive statistics as a Giant, is currently suspended 10 games for PEDs and will likely be cut by the Giants in the offseason.. all of a sudden is the victim of a ‘hate crime’.. Seems awfully convenient. And I’m a life long Giants fan.

From New Jersey.com in September:

Injured Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock suspended 10 games for PED violation

Print Email James Kratch

on September 15, 2016 at 4:29 PM, updated September 15, 2016 at 4:51 PM

EAST RUTHERFORD — Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock has been suspended for 10 games after violating the NFL performance enhancing substance policy.

Whitlock is currently on injured reserve with a foot injury, but he will begin his suspension immediately.

While on suspension, Whitlock will not be compensated – players on IR still receive a salary – and will not be able to have contact with the Giants, or use team facilities and resources for rehabilitation. Players are allowed to have contact with their teams while on suspension in order to arrange off-site medical treatments, however, according to the league.

Suspensions are announced once a player accepts the league’s ruling, or exhausts all appeal options.

Whitlock’s 10-game suspension indicates this is his second PED violation. He was suspended for four games in 2014 when he was a free agent, but since he was not with a team, the league never announced the reason for his suspension.

According to NFL policy, Whitlock will be suspended [at] least two seasons if he violates the policy a third time, and his reinstatement after two years would be at the sole discretion of the commissioner’s office.

Whitlock starred on special teams last season for the Giants while playing sparingly at fullback. He also moonlighted as a defensive tackle. But his roster spot was very much in question this preseason before he suffered a season-ending foot injury and was waived/injured.

Whitlock cleared waivers and reverted to the Giants’ injured reserve. He is set to be a earnings restricted free agent after this season. His 2016 base salary is $525,000, according to NFLPA records.

I can kind of feel sorry for Whitlock: everything you read about him includes the word “undersized.” His natural position is defensive tackle, but in high school he was 5’9″ 175 pounds. Now he’s still only 5’10″. He’s pumped himself up 250 pounds to play some fullback, a little defensive line, and to hustle on special teams, but he keeps getting caught for the PEDs he uses to get massive enough to hang on, barely, in the NFL so that he can be called “undersized.”

The ongoing convergence of iSteve topics — such as PEDs and hate hoaxes — goes on …

    • Replies: @Almost Missouri
    What's the over/under on how many column inches these same "news" outlets devote to the story when it inevitably turns out to be a hoax?

    "Zero" might be the legit bet.

    New moneyball statistic for Fake News outlets: ratio of words devoted to divisive hate-crime hoaxes pre-exposure vs. post-exposure. Statistic name: "Truthiness".

    It should probably have a modifier for the prominence of the words (i.e., front page/top link vs. buried/few impressions), but I can't think of an easy way to do that.

    , @MarkinLA
    Zero for the false police report

    100% for the false insurance claim.
  2. One thing you can count on:Dude that did this was Black! Pathetic asshole. Hit da bricks.

  3. Whitlock may have a point. Nothing says “Trump voter” like breaking into a black guy’s suburban apartment to steal overpriced garish jewelry.

    Occam’s Butterknife-NFL player on his way out of the league stages ridiculous “burglary” complete with fake “raycess Trump” graffiti in hopes the insurance company pays up and quick in order to avoid being called racist themselves. Whitlock has been at the end of his each of teams’ bench. This is probably the end of his football career and he’s on his way to something that pays much less for the rest of his prime earning years. Despite breaking the PED rules and others that haven’t been disclosed, he’s been indulged because he can play football.

    That’s about to end.

    He may have a Wake Forest degree but he isn’t that smart. This is going to be exposed in short order. And probably more because residential burglaries are a “major 7″indexed felony crime in the FBI statistics. Even a small town police department is not going to let some dumb pro athlete stick them with a bad number.

    I believe the Pew research center estimated nationwide Ku Klux Klan membership to be around 3 thousand, more or less. So we have 365 million people in the United States, and our most celebrated southern-fried kabuki theater group, by far, has just enough members to fill one suburban high school.

    There are far more black gang members targeting blacks for violence than the Ku Klux Klan could target in their wildest dreams.

    So now we're back to the NYT's favorite implicit arguement: though there are some exceptions, blacks are collectively stupid and too primitive to conform to modern civilized norms. White people, on the other hand, should know better, and are thus fair targets for deconstruction.
    , @G Pinfold
    The thing is, drawing swastikas next to someone's name or image has been a staple of leftist agit-prop for seventy years.
    I was astounded by those swastika news reports the day after the election, which were reported as outbreaks of pro-Trump fascism. Graffiti saying 'Trump', with an accompanying swastika, is shorthand for 'Trump is a Nazi.' It's way beyond belief that anyone other than SJWs painted those walls.

    Whites who wish ill on black people have a secret weapon that has never failed them since the first black man stepped foot on American soil.

    The inalterable fact that black people always let each other down.

    They know it. We know it.

    Modern white civilization is an existential death race for the majority of black folks–with blacks as enthusiastic players.

    Progressive abortion policy, and our criminal justice system ensures the black bodies will keep a-pilin' up for many many generations to come. Far from feeling oppressed, black folks love being the player in the game they invented. Black folks are nihilists at heart. The specter of death just promotes the primitive exhilaration that brings them back to the game. Playing for keepsies is fun. It's truly a black thing, progressive whites will never understand.

    Cruz says he sees nothing for black people in what Trump says. But Trump is going to bring jobs and reduce inner city violence, isn't that positive? Maybe Cruz represents the affirmative action snowflakes who really might see some privileges reduced now. He forgets all about the poor black men, not the "talented tenth", who don't get affirmative action or any break at all.

    I live in the NYC area and the Giants are the only competitive team we have. All the more reason to move away from NFL football. First Kaepernick, now this.

  13. Story strikes me as very suspicious. The first is generic: There have been so many hate crime hoaxes over the years that one simply has to suspend judgment.

    But there are specifics to this case, also. First, there were apparently two break ins, about a week apart. Details seem to be missing: Did the malefactors break in the first time, steal only a few items, and then come back a week later and break in again, this time leaving graffiti? What kind of criminal does this?

    On the other hand, if there were multiple break ins, why weren’t the police summoned the first time? If I was living in an exposed and insecure environment with my wife and small children I would be calling the police and the press instantly. Along with a mover.

    So far, this story doesn’t add up.

    Strange that most of the people over at WaPo consider the story legit. But then most of them were also convinced that Jackie was raped and that Trump was going to lose.

  28. Nikita Whitlock went on a family outing with his wife and children, so he surely has a good alibi. While they were out of the home, Whitlock’s confederate came in and staged the crime.

    The likely confederate is Victor Cruz. Here’s an excerpt from the Wikipedia article about Cruz:

    2014 season
    On October 12, against the Philadelphia Eagles, Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon, prematurely ending his 2014 season. In 6 games of 2014, Cruz produced 337 receiving yards and a touchdown.

    2015 season
    After a long rehab, Cruz gave an update informing the media he wasn’t yet fully recovered but mostly there. Cruz returned to training camp in the summer of 2015, but unfortunately aggravated his calf. The aggravation of his calf further pushed back his return to originally week 5. From week 5 Cruz’s return was pushed to play in Week 10 against the Patriots, but it was later announced that Cruz would undergo surgery on his left calf, and would miss the entire 2015 season. On November 17, 2015, he was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Since restructuring his contract, as of June 14, 2016 Cruz has begun mini camp with New York in preparation to his long awaited return.

    2016 season
    After two years of rehab, Cruz returned to NFL play on September 11, 2016, in the Giants opener against Dallas.

    Nikita Whitlock went on a family outing with his wife and children, so he surely has a good alibi. While they were out of the home, Whitlock's confederate came in and staged the crime.

    The likely confederate is Victor Cruz. Here's an excerpt from the Wikipedia article about Cruz:


    2014 season
    On October 12, against the Philadelphia Eagles, Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon, prematurely ending his 2014 season. In 6 games of 2014, Cruz produced 337 receiving yards and a touchdown.

    2015 season
    After a long rehab, Cruz gave an update informing the media he wasn't yet fully recovered but mostly there. Cruz returned to training camp in the summer of 2015, but unfortunately aggravated his calf. The aggravation of his calf further pushed back his return to originally week 5. From week 5 Cruz's return was pushed to play in Week 10 against the Patriots, but it was later announced that Cruz would undergo surgery on his left calf, and would miss the entire 2015 season. On November 17, 2015, he was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Since restructuring his contract, as of June 14, 2016 Cruz has begun mini camp with New York in preparation to his long awaited return.

    2016 season
    After two years of rehab, Cruz returned to NFL play on September 11, 2016, in the Giants opener against Dallas. That afternoon, he scored a game winning touchdown and celebrated with a salsa dance, his first in 2 years. Despite his return, Cruz ended up getting fined $12,154 on September 17 for excessive celebration regarding dancing in the endzone with fellow wideout Odell Beckham, Jr. who also followed with the fine for the same reason.

    Cruz is at the end of his career. His production has dropped way off and there is almost no chance another team picks him up after Giants release him when the season ends. That isn't to say he did it, but it is not as big a risk as it would have been for Cruz a few years ago.

  31. His natural position is defensive tackle, but in high school he was 5’9″ 175 pounds. Now he’s still only 5’10″. He’s pumped himself up 250 pounds to play some fullback, a little defensive line, and to hustle on special teams, but he keeps getting caught for the PEDs he uses to get massive enough to hang on, barely, in the NFL so that he can be called “undersized.”

    I wonder why he didn’t try to move to linebacker. He would have been undersized there too, but Sam Mills was a Pro Bowl linebacker at 5’9″, 230 pounds.

    As for Victor Cruz, this is the second time I can recall he inserted himself into a racial controversy. The first was when he tweeted something about “The hood” meting out justice to George Zimmerman after his acquittal, but IIRC, he quickly deleted it. Probably at his agent’s suggestion: Cruz had a nice sideline as a commercial pitchman then. But after a couple of years out with injuries, and now overshadowed by Odell Beckham, Jr., maybe he DGAF, I don’t know. Or maybe as a half Puerto Rican he feels some compulsion to prove his AA bona fides?

    Fullback is the natural position for marginal players between 230 and 260 pounds. It's the least essential NFL position, and some teams don't even carry a fullback. However, there are players who carve out a role there and manage to have a long starting career, even though they wouldn't stand a chance as a tailback or linebacker or tight end.

Most notorious was Vince Young, who having no idea that he was already bankrupt, borrowed $1.8M without the understanding that he was signing a loan document. A Ravens player named Bryant McKinnie had to give his entire 2012 salary of $3.2M to the same lender to settle a $4M debt.

    Through interviews and documents that hadn’t been carefully studied before, he unearthed new details about how soldiers of the Wehrmacht were regularly supplied with methamphetamine of a quality that would give Walter White, of “Breaking Bad,” pangs of envy. Millions of doses, packaged as pills, were gobbled up in battles throughout the war, part of an officially sanctioned factory-to-front campaign against fatigue.

    As surely as hangover follows high, this pharmacological stratagem worked for a while — it was crucial to the turbocharged 1940 invasion and defeat of France — and then did not, most notably when the Nazis were mired in the Soviet Union. But the most vivid portrait of abuse and withdrawal in “Blitzed” is that of Hitler, who for years was regularly injected by his personal physician with powerful opiates, like Eukodal, a brand of oxycodone once praised by William S. Burroughs as “truly awful.” For a few undoubtedly euphoric months, Hitler was also getting swabs of high-grade cocaine, a sedation and stimulation combo that Mr. Ohler likens to a “classic speedball.”

    “There are all these stories of party leaders coming to complain about their bombed-out cities,” Mr. Ohler said, “and Hitler just says: ‘We’re going to win. These losses make us stronger.’ And the leaders would say: ‘He knows something we don’t know. He probably has a miracle weapon.’ He didn’t have a miracle weapon. He had a miracle drug, to make everyone think he had a miracle weapon.”

    What's the over/under on how long before he is arrested for filing a false police report/insurance claim?

    What’s the over/under on how many column inches these same “news” outlets devote to the story when it inevitably turns out to be a hoax?

    “Zero” might be the legit bet.

    New moneyball statistic for Fake News outlets: ratio of words devoted to divisive hate-crime hoaxes pre-exposure vs. post-exposure. Statistic name: “Truthiness”.

    It should probably have a modifier for the prominence of the words (i.e., front page/top link vs. buried/few impressions), but I can’t think of an easy way to do that.

  53. The article implies that the burglar or burglars knew who lived there, having been in there twice and writing a somewhat personalized message. Burglars I have known (through my work) have decided not to burglarize places for much less compelling reasons than the possibility of bumping into a 250 pound professional athlete.

    In and of itself, this scandal is unconcerning. After all, corruption in South Korea is nothing spectacular. Each of the three presidents that came before Ms. Park were embroiled in family corruption scandals that sent multiple government officials to jail and led one president to commit suicide.

    What is truly concerning about this story of downfall is the implication it has for future women leaders. Conservative politicians slander Ms. Choi as a “housewife” and men joke that new female presidents will now be farfetched.

    JFK did not take on the CIA. The CIA followed JFK''s direct orders to murder the Cuban Civilian Population even after the resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis. JFK was a Cold Warrior through and through....which is the reason why he gave a direct order to create the death squad known as the Green Berets.
    , @anonymous
    A minor correction:

    JFK didn't take on the CIA until AFTER the Bay of Pigs failure.

    After that debacle (which was urged on him by almost the entire National Security Structure of his day - with lots of Eisenhower leftovers nodding approvingly), JFK fired CIA director Allen Dulles, plus Deputy Directors Richard Bissell and Charles Cabell.

    Later, JFK famously stated his desire to "smash the CIA into a thousand pieces, and scatter it to the winds", a quote that made its way to the NYT, no less.

    The plot against JFK was complex, compartmentalized and run with considerable precision. The fall guy, Oswald, was a low-level, expendable CIA-asset.

    Parts of the CIA were very much involved in the events of 11/22/63, but I doubt that even Allen Dulles himself would have carried it out completely on his own. Dulles got the OK from other players in the country.

Far from feeling oppressed, black folks love being the player in the game they invented. Black folks are nihilists at heart. The specter of death just promotes the primitive exhilaration that brings them back to the game. Playing for keepsies is fun. It's truly a black thing, progressive whites will never understand.

    Story strikes me as very suspicious. The first is generic: There have been so many hate crime hoaxes over the years that one simply has to suspend judgment.

    But there are specifics to this case, also. First, there were apparently two break ins, about a week apart. Details seem to be missing: Did the malefactors break in the first time, steal only a few items, and then come back a week later and break in again, this time leaving graffiti? What kind of criminal does this?

    On the other hand, if there were multiple break ins, why weren't the police summoned the first time? If I was living in an exposed and insecure environment with my wife and small children I would be calling the police and the press instantly. Along with a mover.

    So far, this story doesn't add up.

    Strange that most of the people over at WaPo consider the story legit. But then most of them were also convinced that Jackie was raped and that Trump was going to lose.

    Story strikes me as very suspicious

    I’m wondering about the quotes:

    “It’s about to be 2017,” Nikita Whitlock said. “Oppression, violence, racism, hatred, violence — there’s no need for that.”

    Whitlock’s teammate Victor Cruz agreed when asked about the incident by reporters on Thursday, calling it “a direct reflection of how this country’s being run” and pointing to the election of Donald Trump as a possible catalyst.

    “I think there’s a specific mindset that comes with supporting a guy like Donald Trump and supporting what he stands for, and there’s a certain type of person that comes with that,” Cruz said (via the New York Daily News). “I’m not sure that person is always a positive-minded person.”

Millions of doses, packaged as pills, were gobbled up in battles throughout the war, part of an officially sanctioned factory-to-front campaign against fatigue.

    As surely as hangover follows high, this pharmacological stratagem worked for a while — it was crucial to the turbocharged 1940 invasion and defeat of France — and then did not, most notably when the Nazis were mired in the Soviet Union. But the most vivid portrait of abuse and withdrawal in “Blitzed” is that of Hitler, who for years was regularly injected by his personal physician with powerful opiates, like Eukodal, a brand of oxycodone once praised by William S. Burroughs as “truly awful.” For a few undoubtedly euphoric months, Hitler was also getting swabs of high-grade cocaine, a sedation and stimulation combo that Mr. Ohler likens to a “classic speedball.”

    “There are all these stories of party leaders coming to complain about their bombed-out cities,” Mr. Ohler said, “and Hitler just says: ‘We’re going to win. These losses make us stronger.’ And the leaders would say: ‘He knows something we don’t know. He probably has a miracle weapon.’ He didn’t have a miracle weapon. He had a miracle drug, to make everyone think he had a miracle weapon.”

    His natural position is defensive tackle, but in high school he was 5’9″ 175 pounds. Now he’s still only 5’10″. He’s pumped himself up 250 pounds to play some fullback, a little defensive line, and to hustle on special teams, but he keeps getting caught for the PEDs he uses to get massive enough to hang on, barely, in the NFL so that he can be called “undersized.”
     
    I wonder why he didn't try to move to linebacker. He would have been undersized there too, but Sam Mills was a Pro Bowl linebacker at 5'9", 230 pounds.

    As for Victor Cruz, this is the second time I can recall he inserted himself into a racial controversy. The first was when he tweeted something about "The hood" meting out justice to George Zimmerman after his acquittal, but IIRC, he quickly deleted it. Probably at his agent's suggestion: Cruz had a nice sideline as a commercial pitchman then. But after a couple of years out with injuries, and now overshadowed by Odell Beckham, Jr., maybe he DGAF, I don't know. Or maybe as a half Puerto Rican he feels some compulsion to prove his AA bona fides?

    Cruz is highly paid, though. It's kind of a big risk to help a buddy out, although maybe these guys aren't smart enough to figure that out. Usually a guy with a sizable contract like Cruz has will have an Al Cowlings-type buddy hanging around. (Cowlings, OJ's pal who drove the white Bronco, kept his mouth shut.)

    Cruz is at the end of his career. His production has dropped way off and there is almost no chance another team picks him up after Giants release him when the season ends. That isn’t to say he did it, but it is not as big a risk as it would have been for Cruz a few years ago.

  70. We recently had a local version of a “hate crime” in Ashburn, VA. An historic “colored” school the size of a tool shed was vandalized with the standard fare … swastikas, n*gger, white power, genitalia, etc.

    The local news:

    “The Loudoun County NAACP condemns this senseless act. We are currently working with others to organize a vigil/rally at the site to bring our community together in solidarity in rejecting this type of vile hate. This is not Loudoun County and we will not let his define us. We are better than this and we hope the community will come out and support our response of love, respect and understanding,” said Loudoun County NAACP President Philip Thompson.

    http://www.loudountimes.com/news/article/historic_ashburn_colored_school_vandalized_with_crude_images

    But the vandalism had a positive element. It helped with fundraising to refurbish the school as an historic site.

    Donations have surged to a GoFund Me page dedicated to the restoration of a historic African American school that was vandalized this past weekend with racist graffiti. As of this posting date, more than $60K has been donated to the GoFundMe page.

    “Our GoFundMe campaign had raised about $6,500 before the vandalism and now we are at more than $60,000.* Our total raised before the vandalism (through yard and bake sales and individual donations, and the GoFundMe of $6,500) was almost $20,000 over the last 18 months,” said Sharon Smith Knipmeyer, who created the page.

    http://patch.com/virginia/ashburn/donations-surge-historic-african-american-school-following-racist-graffiti

    The sheriff’s department caught the teens who vandalized the school … but it will not release any information about who they are or their racial/ethnic identity. Having an inquiring mind, I want to know if hateful Whites really did this … that’s the narrative is it not?

    Deputies say that the teenagers, three 16-year-olds from Sterling, a 17-year-old from Sterling and a 16-year-old from Ashburn, have been interviewed by detectives with the LCSO Criminal Investigations Division. As a result of the extensive and thorough investigation, Loudoun Sheriff’s Detectives will work with the Office of the Loudoun Commonwealth’s Attorney and the Loudoun County Juvenile Court Service Unit Intake Department to obtain charges related to this incident …. The names of the teenagers cannot be released because they are juveniles.

    http://patch.com/virginia/ashburn/5-suspects-identified-vandalism-historic-african-american-school

    I’m suspicious. After the boys were caught, the head of the local NAACP asked the sheriff’s office to be lenient on the boys. They were just using bad judgement typical of teens, he said.

    All of this catching. The vandalism of the school was closely followed by the vandalism of an local historic Black cemetery. However, I’m scratching my head. One would have to have been a historian to know where and what it was. What’s the point?

    At least all of this ferment keeps the narrative about White racism going.

A Ravens player named Bryant McKinnie had to give his entire 2012 salary of $3.2M to the same lender to settle a $4M debt.

    "Very Smart Brothas" are actually quite unlike four leaf clovers. Intelligent individuals (blacks or otherwise) are uncommon if perhaps not rare. Four-leaf-clovers are kind of rare. The difference is that genuine four-leaf-clovers don't go announcing themselves, but leave quite the challenge to be found among a field of three-leafers. Self-proclaimed "Very-Smart-Brothas" on the other hand are probably more loud swagger and pride then genuine smarts.

    Being snarky, making cultural references and writing in “hip” vernacular is what a lot of activists pass for “smart”. I see this within the Asian community as well.

    Also these morons turn their brains to mush for people’s amusement. And then they all spout this anti-American garbage and the liberal ESPN media complex breathlessly reports on it as if we’re supposed to give a damn. Why should I care what some brain damaged idiots think about politics? Because they’re good at football? Ridiculous.

    Since sociopathy is passed down from the male line, maybe the propensity of Black Americans for crime or for rape is due to the genetic imprint of white slave owners who raped their female slaves who then became pregnant, so maybe in a way white males are responsible for the present general sociopathy among black people?

    Though many African-American males find that their direct-line paternal ancestry is European, about 65% of African-American males have Y-chromosomes that trace back to Africa. Subgroups of common African haplogroups are more frequently found in specific African populations and can sometimes be used to identify the likely origins of an individual’s direct-line paternal African ancestor.

    Another possibility is that the "roommate who lives downstairs" knew where Whitlock hid a lot of expensive jewelry, and this roommate stole it and staged this burglary to deflect suspicion from himself.

    In this scenario, Whitlock is an innocent victim of this roommate and is telling a story that is entirely true about himself.

    An important element of this scenario is that the roommate wrote N***** LOVER on the wall in his own downstairs bedroom. This graffiti indicates that the roommate is White and was threatened too by the racist.

    ----

    Here are some speculative considerations:

    The Whitlock family had told the landlord right before Thanksgiving that they had to move out of the home, and the landlord agreed, knowing that the family's income was drastically reduced. This situation gave the roommate an urgent deadline to steal the jewelry.

    During the Thanksgiving holiday, the roommate tried to stage a burglary. He tried to create an impression that he broke through "a window to one of the doors", but it turned out that a metal design in the window stopped him.

    One strange element of this attempted Thanksgiving break-in was that -- as Nikita Whitlock told Chris Hayes -- "they took some packages but were not able to get in". That does not make any sense.

    However, it might make sense if the attempted Thanksgiving break-in really was an inside job. The roommate stole some packages from inside the home and then tried to break through a window but was not able to do so. Then for some reason the roommate failed to return the packages to their proper place inside the home.

    The roommate would know that the Whitlock family -- including Nikita's sister -- would be gone for a couple of hours on the evening of December 6. Really, who else would know?

    Passing thought: who names their kid “Nikita”?

    According to Wikpedia, Whitlock, who is of mixed black-white parentage, was originally to have been called Sergio, but one of his grandparents objected (not clear if black or white) and the father consulted Yellow Pages and found Nikita, which presumably met with grandparental approval.

    Nikita Kruschev died in 1971 and would have been perceived as one of the most feared bogey-men in the world during the lifetime of Whitlock’s grandparents. Whitlock was born in 1991. Go figure.

Are there any non minority cabbies driving in DC? Unfortunately for her people investigating her have found some bizarre things in her past, oh like the possibility that she was married to two men at the same time, and one of the men might have been her brother.

    I'm wondering about the quotes:

    “It’s about to be 2017,” Nikita Whitlock said. “Oppression, violence, racism, hatred, violence — there’s no need for that.”

    Whitlock’s teammate Victor Cruz agreed when asked about the incident by reporters on Thursday, calling it “a direct reflection of how this country’s being run” and pointing to the election of Donald Trump as a possible catalyst.

    “I think there’s a specific mindset that comes with supporting a guy like Donald Trump and supporting what he stands for, and there’s a certain type of person that comes with that,” Cruz said (via the New York Daily News). “I’m not sure that person is always a positive-minded person.”

    If only he got in a few games and been any good at pro football, he would've been a regular at any number of Giants' alumni functions at golf outings at...any one of the 3 Trump courses in the NYC metro area.

    Have a retired cop friend who works security on occasion for a NYC-area pro sports team(not the Giants). The retired players love the easy money from the team-sponsored functions, be it dinners, golf outings, pre-game meet&greets. But nobody wants to pay to meet some bench warmer who hates white people.

    Seems it’s Victor Cruz, a star player, who hates Trump and white people. And he gets plenty of those invites. What if those invites started to dry up? As a high roller, I don’t think I would be so excited about meeting Mr. Cruz any more after reading this.

    Cruz says he sees nothing for black people in what Trump says. But Trump is going to bring jobs and reduce inner city violence, isn’t that positive? Maybe Cruz represents the affirmative action snowflakes who really might see some privileges reduced now. He forgets all about the poor black men, not the “talented tenth”, who don’t get affirmative action or any break at all.

  110. On Friday The Record newspaper (Bergen County, NJ) published two long articles (linked above as NewJersey.com) about the “burglary” — one article in the Local section and one article in the Sports section.

    On Saturday, The Record followed up with a a long column in its Opinion section. Here are excerpts:

    … The intruder, who scrawled the words “KKK,” three swastikas and other racist language on the walls of the football player’s home, apparently did so in homage to President-elect Donald Trump, whose name was also part of the graffiti. Moonachie police are investigating it as a hate crime. …

    Is this the new norm? And if so, how far will we as a nation let it go before we stand united and denounce the bigotry and hatred that has become so pervasive? How far is too far?

    Will we stand by as our neighbors and their children are rounded up, jailed and deported?

    Will we look the other way when residents are required to submit their name to a registry because of the faith they profess?

    Will we say “not my problem” when crosses are burned on lawns and men and women of color are told to go back to their country?

    We’ve watched some of this unfold in our country before. Years of activism helped to beat back widespread hatred and bigotry from the mainstream. But it’s been simmering beneath the surface. And now this recent election cycle – with all of its negative rhetoric – has unleashed the contents of Pandora’s box.

    Those harboring racist views have been emboldened. They feel victorious. And even worse, they feel a kinship with the president-elect, who during his campaign appealed to their fears that immigrants and people of color are taking over.

    Whitlock told The Record that his family tried not to feel targeted but said the specificity of the slurs made it feel “like somebody was definitely trying to get us.”

    From the look of the graffiti, it appears as if someone was trying to get him. And if we don’t say something and stand up against the forces of evil that are rising out of the shadows, they could come for you next.

    Remember, it can happen to anyone.

    This is cause for concern. The last president to start out his term by taking on the CIA was JFK. How did that work out for him?

    A minor correction:

    JFK didn’t take on the CIA until AFTER the Bay of Pigs failure.

    After that debacle (which was urged on him by almost the entire National Security Structure of his day – with lots of Eisenhower leftovers nodding approvingly), JFK fired CIA director Allen Dulles, plus Deputy Directors Richard Bissell and Charles Cabell.

    Later, JFK famously stated his desire to “smash the CIA into a thousand pieces, and scatter it to the winds”, a quote that made its way to the NYT, no less.

    The plot against JFK was complex, compartmentalized and run with considerable precision. The fall guy, Oswald, was a low-level, expendable CIA-asset.

    Parts of the CIA were very much involved in the events of 11/22/63, but I doubt that even Allen Dulles himself would have carried it out completely on his own. Dulles got the OK from other players in the country.

  114. The website nj.com has a webpage with an article about the Whitlock incident and a video of MSNBC’s Chris Hayes interviewing Nikita Whitlock. The article and video provide these details:

    About three weeks after the Whitlock family moved into their Moonachie home, a White female neighbor asked him what he did for a living. When he responded that he played on the NY Giants football team, she remarked” “I told them they didn’t have to worry about drive-by’s”.

    Whitlock lives in the home with his wife, his two children, his sister, and “a roommate who lives downstairs”. In other words, four adults live in the home.

    Sometime before Thanksgiving, “the family said it decided to move out”. (I presume that “the family” was Nikita, his wife and Nikita’s sister, and they said it — they had decided to move out — to the landlord.)

    Whitlock said that someone attempted to break into his home immediately after the Thanksgiving break. He had taken his son to see a movie for Thanksgiving, and when they returned home, Nikita saw that someone had tried to break through “a window to one of the doors”. There is a metal design through the window “that stopped them — they took some packages but they were not able to get in.”

    On the evening of Tuesday, December 9, Whitlock came into the house to get an umbrella, because it was raining and he had a new-born.

    (I presume that his wife and children were waiting in the car while Nikita went into the home to get the umbrella. Tuesday was extremely rainy — more than half an inch of rain — during that entire day. Why didn’t Whitlock bring an umbrella along when his family left home for that day’s family outing?)

    When Whitlock entered the front door to get the umbrella, he looked to the right and saw a swastika and looked to the left and saw the big word TRUMP. As soon as he saw that, he came out and called the police. Whitlock then took his family away from the scene.

    The subsequent police investigation of the apartment lasted for about four hours, and only afterwards was Whitlock permitted to enter his apartment.

    Then when Whilock did enter his home, he saw “clothes thrown everywhere, things missing”.

  115. Before Nikita Whitlock moved to Moonachie, NJ, he lived in some other home that was burglarized while he was living there. The burglary in the previous home happened in about June 2016. It seems to me that the June burglary was the reason for the move to Moonachie.

    After living in the Moonachie home for only a few months, it seems that the Whitlock family told their Moonachie landlord, before Thanksgiving, that they had decided to move out.

    ESPN reported that the first Moonachie burglary happened “over the Thanksgiving holiday” (i.e. November 24-27). The second incident, with the graffiti, happened on December 6 — about a dozen days later.

    If the two Moonachie burglaries were separated by only a dozen days, then the expression in the last six months must refer to the burglary at the Whitlocks’ previous home.

    Whitlock’s ten-game suspension was announced on September 15, 2016, effective immediately from that date.

    Whitlock’s 10-game ban [in September 2016] was for the same substance that cost him four games in 2014, according to an ESPN source. The second suspension will cost him $204,705 in salary.

    I suggest this rough sequence of events in 2016:

    June — Burglary in the pre-Moonachie home

    July — Whitlocks move to Moonachie

    September — Whitlock suspended for ten games, losing $204,705 in expected salary

    October — Whitlocks take in two renters: 1) Nikita’s sister and 2) “the roommate who lives downstairs”.

    Early November — Whitlocks tell their landlord they need to move out of their Moonachie home

    Thanksgiving holiday — The first, unsuccessful burglary of the Moonachie home. The burglars are not able to break through a window, “but they took some packages”.

    December 6 — The second burglary, with lots of racist graffiti that gives the Whitlocks good cause to move out before their lease expires.

    Whitlock lives in the home with his wife, his two children, his sister, and "a roommate who lives downstairs". In other words, four adults live in the home.

    Sometime before Thanksgiving, "the family said it decided to move out". (I presume that "the family" was Nikita, his wife and Nikita's sister, and they said it -- they had decided to move out -- to the landlord.)

    Whitlock said that someone attempted to break into his home immediately after the Thanksgiving break. He had taken his son to see a movie for Thanksgiving, and when they returned home, Nikita saw that someone had tried to break through "a window to one of the doors". There is a metal design through the window "that stopped them -- they took some packages but they were not able to get in."

    On the evening of Tuesday, December 9, Whitlock came into the house to get an umbrella, because it was raining and he had a new-born.

    (I presume that his wife and children were waiting in the car while Nikita went into the home to get the umbrella. Tuesday was extremely rainy -- more than half an inch of rain -- during that entire day. Why didn't Whitlock bring an umbrella along when his family left home for that day's family outing?)

    When Whitlock entered the front door to get the umbrella, he looked to the right and saw a swastika and looked to the left and saw the big word TRUMP. As soon as he saw that, he came out and called the police. Whitlock then took his family away from the scene.

    The subsequent police investigation of the apartment lasted for about four hours, and only afterwards was Whitlock permitted to enter his apartment.

    Then when Whilock did enter his home, he saw "clothes thrown everywhere, things missing".

    CBS, in another article, reported that the Whitlock family have lived in their Moonachie home “for less than six months”.

    I'm surprised that this Giants player lives in Moonachie. Although close to Met Life Stadium, it's one of those old inner ring suburbs that have not held up well. It's 25% Hispanic but I'd imagine the under 18 population is closer to 50%.

    Giants and Jets players have lived in NJ for years without any racist attacks. Why now? Because Trump won? Nonsense. This is fake.

    That’s because of the trailer parks across from the airport.

    Here in California most people who live in trailer parks are Mexicans and Central Americans, not Whites. The trailer parks are associated with Whiteness stereotype does not apply to California. This ain't West Virginia or Kentucky.

  119. There is no website called NewJersey.com

    There are two unrelated websites:

    NorthJersey.com is owned by Gannett and covers Bergen and Passaic Counties, which are the first two counties you hit driving west from the George Washington Bridge.

    NJ.com is owned by Newhouse and covers the rest of the state.

  120. According to the local The Record newspaper (Bergen County, NJ), the December 6 burglary of the Whitlocks’ Moonachie home happened between 6:30 and 8:45 that evening.

    http://www.northjersey.com/story/news/2016/12/08/exclusive-giants-player-describes-racially-charged-scrawls-his-home-after-break-/95136494/

    The Washington Times reported that “the incident happened while he and his family were having dinner away from their Bergen County residence”.

    Nikita Whitlock told MSNBC reporter Chris Hayes that after returning home he alone went into the home to get an umbrella, because it was raining and he had a new-born baby. The idea here seems to be that the wife and children waited in the car while he went into the home to fetch the umbrella.

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2016/12/giants_players_neighbors_expected_drive-by_shootin.html

    The above facts indicate that the Whitlock family left their Moonachie home at 6:30, ate dinner, and returned home at 8:45.

    A major weather station, Teterboro Airport, is located in Moonachie, and so we have a superb record of the rainfall during December 6.

    The rain began to fall during the period from 4:51 to 5:51 p.m., when 0.01 inches was recorded.

    The next rain measurement was recorded from 5:51 to 6:41, when an additional 0.03 inches was recorded.

    So, at 6:30, when the family departed from their home, the rain had begun and was increasing.

    A huge rainstorm had been predicted and was beginning very obviously by 6:30. During the final six hours of December 6, the Teterboro weather station measured a rainfall of .62 inches.

    When the Whitlock family returned home at 8:45, the rainfall was heavy, and so an umbrella certainly was necessary for the family’s walk from their car to their home.

    However, why didn’t the family take umbrellas with them when they left at 6:30?

    I think that Nikita Whitlock did take an umbrella along when he took his family out to eat at 6:30 p.m. on December 9.

    From the beginning that evening, his plan was that he would return home, leave his family in the car, go alone into the front door, see the graffiti, return to the car, and drive his family away to live in some other, safe place. Then he would use the burglary and racist graffiti as good cause to break his rental lease without losing his security deposit.

    Now I think that collecting an insurance benefit for stolen jewelry might have been at most a minor consideration. His biggest problem was that he would not be able to pay his rent for the rest of his lease period.

    I think that he did not intend for this incident to receive so much publicity. He was not trying to smear Trump. Rather, he was just trying to get out of his rental lease on the house.

    However, the police came and investigated the incident. Probably a police officer tipped off the local newspaper, The Record, which used the TRUMP graffiti to report a sensational story.

    Whitlock seems to be dismayed that his confederate wrote TRUMP and that this element of the incident caused the news story to go national.
  121. In the MSNBC interview between Hayes and Whitlock, they both tried to impress their viewers with the idea that Moonachie has a very White population that is “distant” from Blacks.

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2016/12/giants_players_neighbors_expected_drive-by_shootin.html

    I myself live in South Hackensack, New Jersey, which is adjacent to Moonachie. I don’t know Whitlock’s address, but he must live less than two miles from me, because both towns are tiny.

    The two towns are separated by a notorious stretch of Highway 46 that features many used-car lots, cheap motels and strip clubs where there is a lot of prostitution and drug dealing. (Some of the 9/11 hijackers lived in one of those motels for a while.)

    The idea that this area is a lily-White enclave is preposterous. My South Hackensack is only about 5% Black but 33% Hispanic. Whitlock’s Moonachie is only about 1.5% Black but 24% Hispanic. The older population here is disproportionately Sicilians and Southern Italians, some of whom controlled the sleazy businesses. That older population is being replaced steadily by Hispanics.

    The population of South Hackensack is about 2,400 and of Moonachie is about 2,700. Moonachie occupies a space of about 1.7 square mile, which is about 1,090 acres. Teterboro Airport occupies about 830 of those 1,090 acres. Most of the Moonachie population is concentrated in a relatively small area that is directly south from my South Hackensack.

    A few years ago, I read an article reporting that relatively few people move out of Moonachie. There is some rare advantage in property taxes or some other “grandfather” consideration for people who built homes there long ago. I can’t remember or find, however, what the consideration was.

    During the first half of the 1900s, Moonachie’s housing was predominantly trailer homes and other cheap structures. In 1949, the NJ/NY Port Authority purchased most of the area and expelled all the residents in the area of the future airport. You might say that the town of Moonachie is a colony of the Port Authority.

    Terterboro Airport serves predominantly rich people who can afford to fly private airplanes into there when they visit New York City. However, it is also an airport for some unusually expensive cargo. There’s a lot of warehouses around the airport. The sleazy businesses along that stretch of Highway 46 largely serve the airport’s transient riff-raff.

    Moonachie is rather close to the Giants’ MetLife stadium in East Rutherford.

    Moonachie is about 11 miles from Paterson, where Victor Cruz lives.

    Whites need to quit watching football. It's a morally corrupting force in society because it makes its fans look the other way when its black players commit crimes. If you've chosen to overlook crimes because of a sport, you're a really disgusting specimen. Remember how crazy the media attacks were on Tim Tebow solely because he wanted to be a decent human being? That was a symptom of how sick and corrupt our society has become.

    I saw Tebow on Rachael Ray’s show the other day. (I was in a public place with TVs on the wall – I’m not in the habit of watching gynefest talk shows.) Ray was flirting with him. More than a few of the ladies in the audience were flashing goo-goo eyes at him. He looked healthy and happy.

    Living well – not only in the monetary sense – is the best revenge.

    Now, for every Tebow, there are a hundred washed-up jocks with nothing but diabetes and debts to show for their NFL days.

  124. @Bugg
    Whitlock may have a point. Nothing says "Trump voter" like breaking into a black guy's suburban apartment to steal overpriced garish jewelry.

    Occam's Butterknife-NFL player on his way out of the league stages ridiculous "burglary" complete with fake "raycess Trump" graffiti in hopes the insurance company pays up and quick in order to avoid being called racist themselves. Whitlock has been at the end of his each of teams' bench. This is probably the end of his football career and he's on his way to something that pays much less for the rest of his prime earning years. Despite breaking the PED rules and others that haven't been disclosed, he's been indulged because he can play football.

    That's about to end.

    He may have a Wake Forest degree but he isn't that smart. This is going to be exposed in short order. And probably more because residential burglaries are a "major 7"indexed felony crime in the FBI statistics. Even a small town police department is not going to let some dumb pro athlete stick them with a bad number.

    His natural position is defensive tackle, but in high school he was 5’9″ 175 pounds. Now he’s still only 5’10″. He’s pumped himself up 250 pounds to play some fullback, a little defensive line, and to hustle on special teams, but he keeps getting caught for the PEDs he uses to get massive enough to hang on, barely, in the NFL so that he can be called “undersized.”
     
    I wonder why he didn't try to move to linebacker. He would have been undersized there too, but Sam Mills was a Pro Bowl linebacker at 5'9", 230 pounds.

    As for Victor Cruz, this is the second time I can recall he inserted himself into a racial controversy. The first was when he tweeted something about "The hood" meting out justice to George Zimmerman after his acquittal, but IIRC, he quickly deleted it. Probably at his agent's suggestion: Cruz had a nice sideline as a commercial pitchman then. But after a couple of years out with injuries, and now overshadowed by Odell Beckham, Jr., maybe he DGAF, I don't know. Or maybe as a half Puerto Rican he feels some compulsion to prove his AA bona fides?

    Or his buddy Whitlock is in tryouts for a supporting player Cruz’s post-feetsball career as SJW.

    Has there been a single swastika drawn over the past year that WASN’T a hoax? Decade?
     
    I believe the Pew research center estimated nationwide Ku Klux Klan membership to be around 3 thousand, more or less. So we have 365 million people in the United States, and our most celebrated southern-fried kabuki theater group, by far, has just enough members to fill one suburban high school.

    There are far more black gang members targeting blacks for violence than the Ku Klux Klan could target in their wildest dreams.

    So now we're back to the NYT's favorite implicit arguement: though there are some exceptions, blacks are collectively stupid and too primitive to conform to modern civilized norms. White people, on the other hand, should know better, and are thus fair targets for deconstruction.

    “I believe the Pew research center estimated nationwide Ku Klux Klan membership to be around 3 thousand, more or less. So we have 365 million people in the United States, and our most celebrated southern-fried kabuki theater group, by far, has just enough members to fill one suburban high school.”

    There are over 55 thousand Americans who self identify themselves as Scientologists. That’s the population of a suburb of a major metropolition area.

    The point is you know the KKK are an extremely insignificant demographic when even Scientologists outnumber them.

    You are right. I attended a ghetto high school in Hampton, Virginia (hometown of upstanding citizens Allen Iverson and Michael Vick) where the negroes hated whites. But they would only attack when they had a numerical or significant size advantage. They were cowards at heart.

    There were a few bad ass white guys who were fearless and the negroes would back down quickly any time one of those guys was around.

    “There were a few bad ass white guys who were fearless and the negroes would back down quickly any time one of those guys was around.”

    I love watching Youtube videos of ghetto Black guys picking fights with White guys who train in MMA at the local gym and than getting their Black butts kicked.

    Black guys have been so brainwashed by Hollywood which portrays them as having super Human strength when they are not playing MENSA level scientists, that your average Black guy off the street who has zero training in MMA, karate, kickboxing, or boxing thinks he can beat up every White guy on the planet even if they are MMA fighters or Navy SEALS for example. The extremely high confidence of the average Black guy is off the charts.

    We recently had a local version of a "hate crime" in Ashburn, VA. An historic "colored" school the size of a tool shed was vandalized with the standard fare ... swastikas, n*gger, white power, genitalia, etc.

    The local news:

    “The Loudoun County NAACP condemns this senseless act. We are currently working with others to organize a vigil/rally at the site to bring our community together in solidarity in rejecting this type of vile hate. This is not Loudoun County and we will not let his define us. We are better than this and we hope the community will come out and support our response of love, respect and understanding,” said Loudoun County NAACP President Philip Thompson.
     
    http://www.loudountimes.com/news/article/historic_ashburn_colored_school_vandalized_with_crude_images

    But the vandalism had a positive element. It helped with fundraising to refurbish the school as an historic site.

    Donations have surged to a GoFund Me page dedicated to the restoration of a historic African American school that was vandalized this past weekend with racist graffiti. As of this posting date, more than $60K has been donated to the GoFundMe page.

    "Our GoFundMe campaign had raised about $6,500 before the vandalism and now we are at more than $60,000.* Our total raised before the vandalism (through yard and bake sales and individual donations, and the GoFundMe of $6,500) was almost $20,000 over the last 18 months," said Sharon Smith Knipmeyer, who created the page.
     
    http://patch.com/virginia/ashburn/donations-surge-historic-african-american-school-following-racist-graffiti

    The sheriff's department caught the teens who vandalized the school ... but it will not release any information about who they are or their racial/ethnic identity. Having an inquiring mind, I want to know if hateful Whites really did this ... that's the narrative is it not?

    Deputies say that the teenagers, three 16-year-olds from Sterling, a 17-year-old from Sterling and a 16-year-old from Ashburn, have been interviewed by detectives with the LCSO Criminal Investigations Division. As a result of the extensive and thorough investigation, Loudoun Sheriff’s Detectives will work with the Office of the Loudoun Commonwealth’s Attorney and the Loudoun County Juvenile Court Service Unit Intake Department to obtain charges related to this incident .... The names of the teenagers cannot be released because they are juveniles.
     
    http://patch.com/virginia/ashburn/5-suspects-identified-vandalism-historic-african-american-school

    I'm suspicious. After the boys were caught, the head of the local NAACP asked the sheriff's office to be lenient on the boys. They were just using bad judgement typical of teens, he said.

    All of this catching. The vandalism of the school was closely followed by the vandalism of an local historic Black cemetery. However, I'm scratching my head. One would have to have been a historian to know where and what it was. What's the point?

    At least all of this ferment keeps the narrative about White racism going.

    “I’m suspicious. After the boys were caught, the head of the local NAACP asked the sheriff’s office to be lenient on the boys. They were just using bad judgement typical of teens, he said.”

    If the teens were White the head of the local NAACP would have said throw the book on these racist Crackas.

    What planet are you from? The media will not print the truth nor retract their falsehood. They will bury the truth and move on to the next hoax. Here is a recent story, generically stated as a hate crime, presumably committed against "people of color", in San Francisco,

    http://sfist.com/2016/11/19/man_arrested_in_bayview_for_sprayin.php

    Here is the real story, which has never been reported by any of the major local news outlets,

    http://ebar.com/blogs/anti-trump-sf-artist-jailed-for-racist-graffiti-explains-acts/

    The accused artist had a Facebook posting wherein he was dressed as Hitler. The San Francisco Police refused to release a booking photo of Chacon because, looking quite Native-American/Hispanic, he did not fit the narrative. I am sure there is a conspiracy to hide the truth that goes up to the Mayor of SF. No doubt there must be some Federal funding involved around investigations of hate crimes.

    “Here is a recent story, generically stated as a hate crime, presumably committed against “people of color”, in San Francisco,”

    How is spray painting Fuck White people a hate crime against People Of Color? That Vato Mexican should be charged for a hate crime against Whites.

    Also this took place in Bayview Hunter’s Point. Any Bay Area local knows there are barely any White people regardless of their politics residing in Bayview, let alone alt-right White supremacists. Even Samoans and Tongans outnumber White people in the Bayview, that’s how much of a small minority White people are there.

    According to the local The Record newspaper (Bergen County, NJ), the December 6 burglary of the Whitlocks' Moonachie home happened between 6:30 and 8:45 that evening.

    http://www.northjersey.com/story/news/2016/12/08/exclusive-giants-player-describes-racially-charged-scrawls-his-home-after-break-/95136494/

    The Washington Times reported that "the incident happened while he and his family were having dinner away from their Bergen County residence".

    Nikita Whitlock told MSNBC reporter Chris Hayes that after returning home he alone went into the home to get an umbrella, because it was raining and he had a new-born baby. The idea here seems to be that the wife and children waited in the car while he went into the home to fetch the umbrella.

    When Nikita Whitlock drove his family from the dinner outing back to his home, a heavy rain indeed was falling at 8:45. He added this circumstance later when he told his story. He said he left his family in the car and went alone into the home to get an umbrella. In his mind, this was a convenient detail that added veracity to his false story.

    In fact, he already had an umbrella in his car, because a heavy rainstorm was beginning as he drove his family away to the dinner at 6:30.

    If it hadn't been raining at 8:45, he would have had to think up some other reason for leaving his family in the car if he were asked about that detail.

    -----

    Because a heavy rain was falling during the supposed break-in, there should have been a lot of water on the home's floor under the supposed break-in window. If such water was absent, then I hope that the investigating police officers noticed that indication that the crime was staged.

    Whitlock told Chris Hayes that there was a lot of clothes thrown around in the apartment. I think that this is a common indicator that a burglary is staged.

    Whitlock seems to be dismayed that his confederate wrote TRUMP and that this element of the incident caused the news story to go national.

    When Nikita Whitlock drove his family from the dinner outing back to his home, a heavy rain indeed was falling at 8:45. He added this circumstance later when he told his story. He said he left his family in the car and went alone into the home to get an umbrella. In his mind, this was a convenient detail that added veracity to his false story.

    In fact, he already had an umbrella in his car, because a heavy rainstorm was beginning as he drove his family away to the dinner at 6:30.

    If it hadn’t been raining at 8:45, he would have had to think up some other reason for leaving his family in the car if he were asked about that detail.

    Because a heavy rain was falling during the supposed break-in, there should have been a lot of water on the home’s floor under the supposed break-in window. If such water was absent, then I hope that the investigating police officers noticed that indication that the crime was staged.

    Whitlock told Chris Hayes that there was a lot of clothes thrown around in the apartment. I think that this is a common indicator that a burglary is staged.

  137. One implied element of Whitlock’s yarn is that the burglar had some personal vendetta against him. The burglar had broken into his previous home in June and had tried to break into his Moonachie home during the Thanksgiving holiday.

    On December 6, the burglar escalated his vendetta by breaking into the Moonachie home and writing racist graffiti on the walls.

    The burglar somehow knew that the Whitlock family was going out on an outing on the evening of Tuesday, December 6. Perhaps the burglar was a racist neighbor who saw the Whitlock family get into their car at 6:30 and drive away. Then the racist neighbor took advantage of that opportunity to break into the home and write racist graffiti, thus scaring this Black family to move out of the supposedly lily-White Moonachie neighborhood.

    However, if the racist neighbor had been watching the Whitlock home, then he should have noticed that two other adults lived in the home — 1) Nikita Whitlock’s sister and 2) the “roommate who lives downstairs”.

    How do those two fit into this yarn? Did the racist neighbor not know about them? Did they go along with the Whitlocks to the dinner? Did they just happen to be away from home on a rainy Tuesday evening?

    One other consideration in regard to such a racist neighbor is that the Whitlock family seemed to be a respectable family. He was a professional football player, married and raising two small children. There must be some much worse family in the neighborhood to scare away.

    Also, Whitlock told Hayes that the graffiti in the bedroom of the “roommate who lives downstairs” said NIGGER LOVER. I assume that means that the “roommate” is White and that the racist neighbor resented this White person living with a Black family.

    How did the burglar know that the occupant of this particular bedroom is White? I hope that the investigating police officers thought about the consideration that a racist burglar would have perceived correctly that a White person lived in this bedroom.

    I don’t know the race of Nikita Whitlock’s wife.

    * If she is Black, then the “roommate who lives downstairs” was the only White person living in the home.

    I get the feeling burglary complaint is genuine, but the burglar is another black man who has painted the KKK stuff to lay a false trail. Even if Whitlock isn't a criminal himself, it's highly he has a black friend or relative who is, and the graffiti would encourage Whitlock to think it was the work of a stranger. Alternatively, it could be an angry drug dealer (black or white) who Whitlock owes money to.

    Calculated to deceive the victim and the police? Sure, why not.

  139. The various videos show that sheets have been hung up on the home’s interior walls to cover the graffiti.

    This circumstance indicates to me that the Whitlock family had to continue living in the home. If the family had been able to move elsewhere immediately, then the sheets would not be necessary.

    Here are some possibilities:

    * The Whitlocks did not have some friends in the area who would give them shelter in a situation where some racist maniac was on a personal vendetta against them.

    * The Whitlocks did not have enough money to rent a motel room.

    * The landlord refused to let them out of their lease.

    Why didn’t Whitlock’s rich teammate Victor Cruz help the Whitlocks in this situation? Cruz could have let the Whitlocks move into his Paterson home or at least pay for a motel room. Maybe Cruz wanted to maintain a distance from Whitlock in this situation and got publicly involved only because he was questioned by journalists.

    Another possibility is that Nikita Whitlock indeed was able to move his family to some other place but his sister and the “roommate who lives downstairs” had to stay in the home and the sheets were hung to cover the graffiti so that those two did not have to see it all the time.

    I wonder if Whitlock’s confederate is the “roommate who lives downstairs”. The words N***** LOVER written on his bedroom’s wall was supposed to indicate that he (she?) too was being threatened by the racists and therefore should move out of the house.

    Whites need to quit watching football. It's a morally corrupting force in society because it makes its fans look the other way when its black players commit crimes. If you've chosen to overlook crimes because of a sport, you're a really disgusting specimen. Remember how crazy the media attacks were on Tim Tebow solely because he wanted to be a decent human being? That was a symptom of how sick and corrupt our society has become.

    This is mostly a high school thing, which means that its effects are far worse. Like the Silsbee thing.

    Another possibility is that the “roommate who lives downstairs” knew where Whitlock hid a lot of expensive jewelry, and this roommate stole it and staged this burglary to deflect suspicion from himself.

    In this scenario, Whitlock is an innocent victim of this roommate and is telling a story that is entirely true about himself.

    An important element of this scenario is that the roommate wrote N***** LOVER on the wall in his own downstairs bedroom. This graffiti indicates that the roommate is White and was threatened too by the racist.

    —-

    Here are some speculative considerations:

    The Whitlock family had told the landlord right before Thanksgiving that they had to move out of the home, and the landlord agreed, knowing that the family’s income was drastically reduced. This situation gave the roommate an urgent deadline to steal the jewelry.

    During the Thanksgiving holiday, the roommate tried to stage a burglary. He tried to create an impression that he broke through “a window to one of the doors”, but it turned out that a metal design in the window stopped him.

    One strange element of this attempted Thanksgiving break-in was that — as Nikita Whitlock told Chris Hayes — “they took some packages but were not able to get in”. That does not make any sense.

    However, it might make sense if the attempted Thanksgiving break-in really was an inside job. The roommate stole some packages from inside the home and then tried to break through a window but was not able to do so. Then for some reason the roommate failed to return the packages to their proper place inside the home.

    The roommate would know that the Whitlock family — including Nikita’s sister — would be gone for a couple of hours on the evening of December 6. Really, who else would know?

    Dee dee dee. La la la.
     
    Crime is high in Moonachie and South Hackensack because of that stretch of Highway 46, where there are a lot of used-car lots, cheap motels, strip clubs, prostitution, drug dealing, etc.

    I think that crime in the residential neighborhoods is normal. Keep in mind that both towns are quite small.

    Precisely. What’s Moonachie–a couple thousand?

    My north Jersey geography weakens with distance from it in time and space and I hadn’t looked on a map, so thanks for the “South Hackensack”/Hwy. 46 mention. Maps it more precisely in my mind and reminds me of the proximity to the Meadowlands.

    Had an old friend from Teaneck who talked about that area you mention–back in the ’80s. I seem to recall him calling it “redneck avenue”? Or maybe that’s a garbled memory and anyway I’d presume it’s far from “redneck” now.

    iSteve probably had mind this particular attempt at juxtaposing Trump and Nazi imagery; which received quite a bit of criticism on the Internet for its ineptitude:
