The LA Times has now posted a small notice at the end of its lavish above-the-fold front page article:

UPDATES:

4:05 p.m.: This article has been updated to include details of Ismael’s arrest last year on vandalism charges. He has pleaded not guilty and has not been convicted.

This article was originally published March 11.

This appears to be the update:

He also has had recent trouble with the law. Last year, he was arrested and charged with felony vandalism and possession of tools to commit vandalism or graffiti in an incident involving the spray-painting of several cars, fences and buildings in Berkeley. Local news outlets ran photos of graffiti that included anti-white and anti-police slogans. Ismael denies involvement and has pleaded not guilty.

The next court date is next month, and he has expressed hope that he can put the case behind him.

“I’ve fallen a lot, but I’ve always gotten up,” he says of his problems.

So Ismael is the good kind of a hate criminal, an “anti-white” one.

    Statue of controversial South Carolina doctor will be moved out of Manhattan
    …Jan 12, 2018

    ..The 14-foot-tall bronze statue of South Carolina doctor J. Marion Sims will be moved out of Manhattan to his grave in Brooklyn after activists in East Harlem started raising awareness about his controversial legacy.

    Sims is widely known as the “Father of Gynecology,” but he perfected his surgical techniques in the 19th century by experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia or their consent.

    According to the New York City commission’s report, “No person or group wrote or testified to request that the Sims monument remain in its current location.”

    “he perfected his surgical techniques … by experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia or their consent.”
    He’s like a combination of Mengele and the marathon man dentist.

    J. Marion Sims

    In the 19th century, vesicovaginal fistulas was a common, socially destructive, and “catastrophic complication of childbirth,” that affected many women and had no effective cure or treatment.

    In Montgomery, Alabama between 1845 and 1849, Sims experimented by surgery on 12 enslaved women with fistulas in his backyard hospital, who were brought to him by their masters.

    Slaves with a debilitating medical condition brought to a doctor by their masters? Yes, but did they consent? Oppression! We don’t know that they didn’t, but it’s the principle that matters.

    Each suffered from fistula, and all were subjected to his surgical experimentation.

    Surgical experimentation? Just like Mengele.

    he experimented on each of them several times, operating on Anarcha 13 times before her fistula repair was declared a success.

    Well, he successfully cured their problem and they didn’t die, but it’s the principle that’s important.

    Although anesthesia had recently become available, Sims did not use any anesthetic during his procedures … anesthesia was not yet fully accepted into surgical practice … Ether as an anesthetic was available as early as the beginning of 1842

    He operated in 1845 and ether was first used in 1842, but hey, we’re sure he was just a sadist.

    PS
    I want the costs of free medical care of slaves deducted from my reparations payment.

    What kind of anesthesia was there in the 19th century? I seem to recall several movies where limbs get sawed off while the patient bites down on something.

    There was no primary. This was about a hundred or so party insiders doing what was more or less a straw poll. Moore had to go through a primary, and he came within 1.5% of winning despite a sex scandal and being outspent 5 to 1. Saccone, however, has no excuses. Total GOP spending exceeded Lamb's and Saccone had no skeletons in his closet. He was just a poorer campaigner than Moore, which is saying something. What were PA's party elders thinking?

    I believe he was arrested at his then residence in San Francisco, not at the scene, and charged with multiple crimes. This would imply that the evidence against him is not simply that he was caught running down the street near a fresh instance of vandalism. Did an accomplice squeal on him–and supply the cops with physical evidence? Did they have a search warrant for his digs and find something incriminating? Were they able to nail down his location and movements on multiple occassions from security videos? The cops don’t have to tell the truth during interrogations, so if they get you talking they can just hold back what they know and lead you into lies.

    Only a small proportion of recently-arrived migrant professionals are actually employed in professional positions,” Mr Birrell’s report Australia’s Skilled Migration Program: Scarce Skills Not Required said.

    Mr Birrell said the Skills Occupations List introduced in 2010 to target professions experiencing a “national shortage”, had gradually been watered down and then scrapped altogether in 2016.

    He believes the list was axed because of the pressure to maintain a high immigration program after the mining boom slowdown. Recently, Treasurer Scott Morrison said calls to reduce immigration could cost the Budget $1 billion a year.

  31. UC Berkeley student evicted from Hayward trailer

    http://abc7news.com/realestate/uc-berkeley-student-evicted-from-hayward-trailer/3208429/

    The homeowners are evicting them. They didn’t want to be identified, but the so-called landlords told ABC7 News they agreed to let Chamu live in their trailer for two weeks as a favor to a friend at church.

    They said it’s been nearly three months and he’s never paid rent.

    “And now he’s saying we treat him bad, that he’s given us money,” said the homeowner. “What money? Trying to do something good, to help someone became a nightmare for us.”

    Chamu said he answered an advertisement for a trailer for rent and has been paying $650 per month

    What a lier!

    Watching the video actually reveals the location of the property. Ismael holds a hand-written consent to vacate with the address visible and the close-up of the City of Hayward violation notice also reveals the address. Easy to find the property on Google Earth. Interestingly, the homeowner's accent is clearly Hispanic. Ismael claims that he has been paying $650 a month in rent (!!) but did not show a receipt to the reporter.

    While detained in Oakland, Chamu describes allegedly being mocked by a sheriff. “He made a joke that I thought was the most personal. He said, ‘How have you frijole?’ ” Frijole translates to “bean” in Spanish.

    Can someone grammatically parse and explain the meaning of “How have you frijole [bean]?”?

    The family whose trailer he’s staying in say they offered it for two weeks for free as a favor to someone at church and Chamu has been there three months for free, but Chamu claims that he answered an ad and has been paying rent. This seems like something that a reporter, like, oh say, Teresa Watanabe, could ferret out the truth on. Was there an ad? Where? Check it out. Was money exchanged? In cash? On the promise of anonymity could the trailer owner introduce the reporter to the person at church who asked for the favor?

    If Chamu is just a serial lier, hey, that’s a story, why not break it? If the guy made a sucker out of you and lied to your face, screw politics; he needs to go down.

    The homeowner is Hispanic based on the ABC 7 interview. She got a notice from the city that nobody can live in a trailer in that way. Maybe she’s trying to solve that problem and avoid a fine, and maybe she’s the one lying. But it seems like this could be reported out and answers could be found.

If this district were 85% black, hispanic, Jewish, or Asian of any stripe, this election would not even have been necessary since the democrat would automatically get a super majority.

    That is because most Whites hate hate hate Donald Trump. Its a Dem Blue wave, far from being the coalition of the fringes its we who are the fringe.

    Trump is as good as impeached and the only question is Hillary vs Kamala.

    Most Whites want to live in a non White majority nation. Trump has enraged this group who are mostly women while depressing White male turnout with guns, cucking on the border, etc.

    White men loose in a South Africa. White women win because they get to be mistresses of the conquerors. They move up. We move down.

    Voting is therefore pointless but creating fear is not. So the fear outweighs the spite for beta males and desire to be a big shot mistress.

    People especially women love the poz. Let's not deny the obvious.

    Trump riled up the poz while doing nothing. Most women are pussy hatters. That's the point right there. Trump only won because the non White voters stayed home for Hillary and pussy hatters stayed home thinking it was a sure thing.

    I fail to see how Trump can possibly be perceived so poorly in a 90%+ white district.

    One more thing about PA18. It is a 95% white district. And the election is razor thin. It reinforces what we know that the only reason we even have elections in this country is because the white vote does not vote along party lines. If this district were 85% black, hispanic, Jewish, or Asian of any stripe, this election would not even have been necessary since the democrat would automatically get a super majority.

    But whites still haven't been red-pilled. It is a crying shame that the democrats can get so many white voters. Whites have to be some of the stupidest people in the world. What else do the democrats have to do to let whites know they hate them?

    That is because most Whites hate hate hate Donald Trump. Its a Dem Blue wave, far from being the coalition of the fringes its we who are the fringe.

    Trump is as good as impeached and the only question is Hillary vs Kamala.

    Most Whites want to live in a non White majority nation. Trump has enraged this group who are mostly women while depressing White male turnout with guns, cucking on the border, etc.

    White men loose in a South Africa. White women win because they get to be mistresses of the conquerors. They move up. We move down.

    Voting is therefore pointless but creating fear is not. So the fear outweighs the spite for beta males and desire to be a big shot mistress.

    People especially women love the poz. Let’s not deny the obvious.

    Trump riled up the poz while doing nothing. Most women are pussy hatters. That’s the point right there. Trump only won because the non White voters stayed home for Hillary and pussy hatters stayed home thinking it was a sure thing.

    Can someone explain this to me?

    While detained in Oakland, Chamu describes allegedly being mocked by a sheriff. “He made a joke that I thought was the most personal. He said, ‘How have you frijole?’ ” Frijole translates to “bean” in Spanish.
     
    Can someone grammatically parse and explain the meaning of "How have you frijole [bean]?"?
    I thought that I read that this character was born in San Diego and grew up on the East Coast somewhere. He should speak native English. Actually, "the most" should be something like "very."

    When Jews want to elicit sympathy they talk about deaths, when blacks do it they talk about being threatened with death, and then there’s the Chicano: “Zay prethume to thpeak mah languish, but, rathith zat zay are, zey did not pronounth it corrrrec’ly.”

    The CIA Democrats: Part One

    An extraordinary number of former intelligence and military operatives from the CIA, Pentagon, National Security Council and State Department are seeking nomination as Democratic candidates for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. The potential influx of military-intelligence personnel into the legislature has no precedent in US political history.

    If the Democrats capture a majority in the House of Representatives on November 6, as widely predicted, candidates drawn from the military-intelligence apparatus will comprise as many as half of the new Democratic members of Congress. They will hold the balance of power in the lower chamber of Congress.

    I am suspicious of all these elections where they win by two per cent. Plus it's funny when they call us Nazis, win by four hundred votes, and then speechify about uniting instead of dividing.

    The good news is even if the dem wins tonight, he still has to run again in November. The bad news is that he will get a new district unless the supremes overrule the PA judge who are forcing a redraw of PA districts.

    Are the proprieters and regular patrons being held a gunpoint by armed robbers? Did Detective Harry Callahan just take his regular seat at the counter and start reading the newspaper? Did a waitress just dump half the contents of the sugar dispenser into his coffee when she knows he always drinks it unsweetened? Did this detective just spit out the syrupy goo as he took a sip of his coffee-to-go on his way out the door?

    UC Berkeley student evicted from Hayward trailer
    http://abc7news.com/realestate/uc-berkeley-student-evicted-from-hayward-trailer/3208429/

    The homeowners are evicting them. They didn't want to be identified, but the so-called landlords told ABC7 News they agreed to let Chamu live in their trailer for two weeks as a favor to a friend at church.

    They said it's been nearly three months and he's never paid rent.

    "And now he's saying we treat him bad, that he's given us money," said the homeowner. "What money? Trying to do something good, to help someone became a nightmare for us."

    Chamu said he answered an advertisement for a trailer for rent and has been paying $650 per month
     

    What a lier!

    Watching the video actually reveals the location of the property. Ismael holds a hand-written consent to vacate with the address visible and the close-up of the City of Hayward violation notice also reveals the address. Easy to find the property on Google Earth. Interestingly, the homeowner’s accent is clearly Hispanic. Ismael claims that he has been paying $650 a month in rent (!!) but did not show a receipt to the reporter.

  58. OT:

    Right now, I’m watching NYPD Blue on H&I. (I’m not really watching it, per se; it’s on in the background.)

    This episode features a new character – a strident, joyless, pantsuit-clad lesbian played by Denise Crosby (Yar on Star Trek: TNG).

    Crosby’s character – a replacement for the departing Lt. Fancy, the show’s beloved Magic Negro – is utterly devoid of any redeeming qualities. She disrupts the chemistry of the smoothly-running detective team simply for the sake of asserting her authority. Her cold, abrasive personality destroys the morale of everyone who works under her.

    Sipowicz, the moody, alcoholic Pole, glumly points out that her status as a “double minority” – a female homosexual – makes her untouchable. He and his colleagues brace themselves for the full onslaught of her menopausal fury.

    But then a miracle occurs: the outgoing Magic Negro, seeing that the butch bitch is destroying the fabric of the squad he has so nobly led for so very long, calls in a favor to get her transferred. She confronts the Negro; he tells her off.

    The new boss – a mellow, mustachioed Hispanic – arrives shortly thereafter. Peace prevails in the precinct.

    Watching this little melodrama, which was first broadcast nearly 17 years ago, I could not help but wonder how SJWs would react to such an episode if it were made today. In 2018, would the noble Negro still have enough intersectionality points to defeat the evil bulldyke? Or would she slay him with her GoGrl cred?

    Useless trivia: The NYPD Blue episode aired on ABC on April 3, 2001. Incidentally, the top news story on that date was a tense diplomatic crisis between the U.S. and China.

    On April Fool’s Day 2001, a U.S. spy plane collided with a Chinese fighter jet. The jet crashed; its pilot died. The spy plane made an emergency landing on a Chinese island. China captured the American crew and held them for 10 days. In the end, we apologized; they gave us back our boys and (eventually) our toys.

    (Whenever I pay enough attention to a TV show to get the gist of the plot, I look up the date on which it aired. It makes me feel like I’m traveling back in time.)

    More useless trivia: Early next week, we mark the fifteenth anniversary of Bush’s folly – the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

    Shortly before dawn on March 20, 2003 (Iraqi time), we launched a “surgical strike” to “decapitate” the Iraqi leadership with four bunker-busting bombs. Alas, Saddam quickly turned up on Iraqi TV, very much alive.

    (Over the next several days, CNN commentators eagerly speculated that the Saddam seem on Iraqi TV was a “decoy,” and that the real Saddam was lying dead in the rubble of his presidential palace.)

    The ground invasion, which followed only hours later, was billed almost as a formality. CNN commentators assured us that, in all probability, the downtrodden Iraqi people would greet the triumphant forces of the “coalition of the willing” with levels of enthusiasm not seen since the liberation of Paris in 1944.

    Three weeks into the war, Baghdad fell.

    When the prophesied orgasm of jubilation failed to materialize, the CIA arranged a “spontaneous” demonstration at which a large statue of Saddam was toppled by a “joyous mob” in front of the television cameras. CNN commentators explained that this powerful expression of the popular will was a definite sign that, at long last, a durable peace had come to a troubled land.

    On May Day, Bush the Son descended from the heavens to proclaim “Mission Accomplished” to a grateful nation. CNN commentators insisted that the “sporadic” violence still plaguing Iraq would subside as our troops “mopped up” after the messy war.

    Four months later, on the Sunday after Labor Day, Bush gave another speech. This time, he announced that he was asking Congress for $87 billion to fund continuing operations in Iraq. CNN commentators indicated that this speech was a tacit acknowledgement that America’s mission in Iraq would not be ending anytime soon.

    ‘They are using our festival to sell a brand’: Pharrell and Adidas are blasted for ‘cultural appropriation’ after debuting ‘offensive’ collection inspired by the Hindu holiday Holi

    Pharrell, 44, has collaborated on a line of sneakers and sportswear for Adidas that is named ‘Hu Holi’
    The mulitcolored items aim to celebrate Holi, also known as the ‘festival of colors’, a Hindu spring festival celebrated across India
    As part of his promotional duties, Williams traveled to India with the brand to film a short video of him attending the festival with Bollywood star, Ranveer Singh
    However, observant Twitter users have pointed out that the rapper and music producer doesn’t look very happy to be part of the campaign

    Statue of controversial South Carolina doctor will be moved out of Manhattan
    ...Jan 12, 2018

    ..The 14-foot-tall bronze statue of South Carolina doctor J. Marion Sims will be moved out of Manhattan to his grave in Brooklyn after activists in East Harlem started raising awareness about his controversial legacy.
    ...
    Sims is widely known as the "Father of Gynecology," but he perfected his surgical techniques in the 19th century by experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia or their consent.
    ...
    According to the New York City commission's report, "No person or group wrote or testified to request that the Sims monument remain in its current location."

     

    "he perfected his surgical techniques ... by experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia or their consent."
    He's like a combination of Mengele and the marathon man dentist.


    J. Marion Sims
    ...
    In the 19th century, vesicovaginal fistulas was a common, socially destructive, and "catastrophic complication of childbirth," that affected many women and had no effective cure or treatment.
    ...
    In Montgomery, Alabama between 1845 and 1849, Sims experimented by surgery on 12 enslaved women with fistulas in his backyard hospital, who were brought to him by their masters.

     

    Slaves with a debilitating medical condition brought to a doctor by their masters? Yes, but did they consent? Oppression! We don't know that they didn't, but it's the principle that matters.


    Each suffered from fistula, and all were subjected to his surgical experimentation.

     

    Surgical experimentation? Just like Mengele.


    he experimented on each of them several times, operating on Anarcha 13 times before her fistula repair was declared a success.

     

    Well, he successfully cured their problem and they didn't die, but it's the principle that's important.


    Although anesthesia had recently become available, Sims did not use any anesthetic during his procedures ... anesthesia was not yet fully accepted into surgical practice ... Ether as an anesthetic was available as early as the beginning of 1842

     

    He operated in 1845 and ether was first used in 1842, but hey, we're sure he was just a sadist.

    PS
    I want the costs of free medical care of slaves deducted from my reparations payment.

    “he perfected his surgical techniques in the 19th century by experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia or their consent.”

    What kind of anesthesia was there in the 19th century? I seem to recall several movies where limbs get sawed off while the patient bites down on something.

    Chloroform and ether. The former was difficult to calibrate properly between an effective dose and a fatal one, the latter was (and is) flammable. Neither is used today. What has made modern anesthetic highly effective and safe wasn’t just the advent of safer anesthetic agents, it was the invention of a whole series of patient monitoring technologies.

    Today, anesthesiologist don’t even use general anesthesia (knocking patients out completely) for many procedures. They often use “regional” anesthesia, which is safer and promotes rapid recovery.

    Now they tell us.

    Only a small proportion of recently-arrived migrant professionals are actually employed in professional positions,” Mr Birrell’s report Australia’s Skilled Migration Program: Scarce Skills Not Required said.
     

    Mr Birrell said the Skills Occupations List introduced in 2010 to target professions experiencing a “national shortage”, had gradually been watered down and then scrapped altogether in 2016.

    He believes the list was axed because of the pressure to maintain a high immigration program after the mining boom slowdown. Recently, Treasurer Scott Morrison said calls to reduce immigration could cost the Budget $1 billion a year.

    The family whose trailer he's staying in say they offered it for two weeks for free as a favor to someone at church and Chamu has been there three months for free, but Chamu claims that he answered an ad and has been paying rent. This seems like something that a reporter, like, oh say, Teresa Watanabe, could ferret out the truth on. Was there an ad? Where? Check it out. Was money exchanged? In cash? On the promise of anonymity could the trailer owner introduce the reporter to the person at church who asked for the favor?

    If Chamu is just a serial lier, hey, that's a story, why not break it? If the guy made a sucker out of you and lied to your face, screw politics; he needs to go down.

    The homeowner is Hispanic based on the ABC 7 interview. She got a notice from the city that nobody can live in a trailer in that way. Maybe she's trying to solve that problem and avoid a fine, and maybe she's the one lying. But it seems like this could be reported out and answers could be found.

    It’d be really great if the party would stop nominating old baby boomers.

    There was no primary. This was about a hundred or so party insiders doing what was more or less a straw poll. Moore had to go through a primary, and he came within 1.5% of winning despite a sex scandal and being outspent 5 to 1. Saccone, however, has no excuses. Total GOP spending exceeded Lamb’s and Saccone had no skeletons in his closet. He was just a poorer campaigner than Moore, which is saying something. What were PA’s party elders thinking?

    It is not a question about what, it is a question about if. This is a problem with party insiders and nominating someone who just shows up at every party event. But do Republicans learn the lesson? I'd bet no.

    Statue of controversial South Carolina doctor will be moved out of Manhattan
    ...Jan 12, 2018

    ..The 14-foot-tall bronze statue of South Carolina doctor J. Marion Sims will be moved out of Manhattan to his grave in Brooklyn after activists in East Harlem started raising awareness about his controversial legacy.
    ...
    Sims is widely known as the "Father of Gynecology," but he perfected his surgical techniques in the 19th century by experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia or their consent.
    ...
    According to the New York City commission's report, "No person or group wrote or testified to request that the Sims monument remain in its current location."

     

    "he perfected his surgical techniques ... by experimenting on enslaved women without anesthesia or their consent."
    He's like a combination of Mengele and the marathon man dentist.


    J. Marion Sims
    ...
    In the 19th century, vesicovaginal fistulas was a common, socially destructive, and "catastrophic complication of childbirth," that affected many women and had no effective cure or treatment.
    ...
    In Montgomery, Alabama between 1845 and 1849, Sims experimented by surgery on 12 enslaved women with fistulas in his backyard hospital, who were brought to him by their masters.

     

    Slaves with a debilitating medical condition brought to a doctor by their masters? Yes, but did they consent? Oppression! We don't know that they didn't, but it's the principle that matters.


    Each suffered from fistula, and all were subjected to his surgical experimentation.

     

    Surgical experimentation? Just like Mengele.


    he experimented on each of them several times, operating on Anarcha 13 times before her fistula repair was declared a success.

     

    Well, he successfully cured their problem and they didn't die, but it's the principle that's important.


    Although anesthesia had recently become available, Sims did not use any anesthetic during his procedures ... anesthesia was not yet fully accepted into surgical practice ... Ether as an anesthetic was available as early as the beginning of 1842

     

    He operated in 1845 and ether was first used in 1842, but hey, we're sure he was just a sadist.

    PS
    I want the costs of free medical care of slaves deducted from my reparations payment.

    Great job, Hippo. As a distant relation of his, I thank you.

    A commenter on the Times article, mgksf01, notes that you can get food stamps in Caliafornia just fine without a fixed address, but if you're caught in food stamp fraud, they cut you off.

    He also notes that Chamu lists a San Francisco tech start-up part-time job on his LinkedIn page.

    And he and his brother, both apparently receiving Pell grants, should be getting $11,000 each per year from that source. And their UC tuition is likely free.

    The younger sisters would be getting free breakfast and lunch at school.

    He also wonders why the older sister couldn't at least be working a weekend job at McDonald's, although I think she'd need a B-1 work permit from her high school in California.

    My take on this guy is that he's in a major (Sociology) at UCB where people who cannot handle the academics tend to congregate. He's probably a teacher's pet, and anything he's accomplished up until now has happened under the tutelage of his professors. When he gets out on his own he's going to have problems. He's probably not that bright. And he has ethical problems. I'd stay away from law school, if I were him, although a felony rap will do that automatically. Get the fake Ph.D. in sociology and stay in the academic system. That's the only way for him to survive.

    Well, keep in mind that he’s going to be a millionaire by the end of the week…

    As the arc of time brings justice and the right side of history prevails, Leonard Pitts will lead the People of Color to a globalized future in which racist losers and their repugnant ideas have died out and been replaced by Maternal Societies of Color.

    ("A Tiny Medley," from Tiny Duck's Greatest Hits, Volune One)

    ” … Maternal Societies of Color.”

    This is sarcastic foresight. Oprah, the White liberal goddess of redemption and procurer of skinny White girls for Harvey Weinstein, will of course be queen of the global coven. Hillary Clinton will provide the infants for their blood rituals.

    He believes the list [of professions with shortages] was axed because of the pressure to maintain a high immigration program after the mining boom slowdown.

     

    A remarkable sentence.

    I find the following sentence even more remarkable:

    Recently, Treasurer Scott Morrison said calls to reduce immigration could cost the Budget $1 billion a year.

    So not spending money on more immigration is now a “cost” to the budget?! Am I misinterpreting somehow or is this really as idiotic as it sounds?

  76. Reading the comments to the LA Times (sorted by reputation and voted up) is fun. Not sure if I missed a reference to this Berkeleyside article here or in Steve’s earlier post, but it helps put this in context and actually resembles journalism (in contrast to the LAT): http://www.berkeleyside.com/2017/07/17/uc-berkeley-students-charged-vandalism-not-hate-crimes

    I imagine no one here is surprised by this (well, the not charged part, I was surprised the BPD warrant alleged hate crimes for this):

    The warrants from the Berkeley Police Department also included a hate crime allegation, because the graffiti included the phrase “Fuck White People,” but the Alameda County district attorney’s office declined to charge the case as such.

    Another interesting touch:

    More than a dozen tires were also slashed, and police said Chamu was hiding a knife when officers approached him. He has not been charged in connection with the knife, however, according to court papers.

    Sounds like they have good evidence:

    Hong wrote that one of the properties that was vandalized had surveillance cameras around it. They recorded some of the vandalism as it took place.

    “Chamu and Estrada appeared to be the same two males captured on video footage spray painting the commercial van and a sign. The two males were also captured spray painting Antifa Zone and Kill the Police on several construction barriers,” he wrote. When shown the footage, officers identified the culprits as Chamu and Estrada “based on clothing, physical build, and distinct features.”

    Also

    Two UC Berkeley students arrested on felony warrants last week related to vandalism and extensive anarchist graffiti near the Cal campus were captured on surveillance footage spray painting, and found with paint stains on their hands, according to court papers.

    “Estrada had pink, red, and black paint stains on his hands. Estrada had two black spray paint cans in his possession.… Chamu had the lid of a paint can in his pocket,” Hong wrote. Chamu’s hands had black and pink stains on them, too, he wrote.

    Is this part of a script they give to people like this?

    Chamu initially posted on Facebook that Berkeley police had racially profiled him when they arrested him near campus. That post has since been deleted or is no longer publicly visible.

    In case anyone was wondering:

    The district attorney’s office did not provide details about why the case was not charged as a hate crime.

    The comments are fairly iStevey. They even bring up they (as Pablo Gomez).

    From those comments, here is an example of how you can be found guilty of hate crimes for graffiti in the Bay Area: https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/San-Francisco-Man-Convicted-of-Misdemeanor-Vandalism-Hate-Crime-Charges-for-Anti-Chinese-Graffiti-364602321.html?amp=y

    As an example of how this guy might get off, the bicycle lock antifa assailant, Eric Clanton, has been seen riding the buses around the Bay Area and is not in jail. His pretrial hearing had been postponed until the 22nd of last month from way last year, and ended up being continued until April 5. It sounds like there will be a plea bargain, since the prosecutor agreed to the continuance and said the case will be wrapped up at the April 5 hearing. I don’t see the defendant accepting a plea bargain for an significant jail time, so the prosecution must not be going that tough on him.
