“He wanted me to move my car, but you know, I have my right to park anywhere I wanna park. All my man was trying to do was protect his girl like anybody else would.”

Markeis McGlockton’s girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, July 22, 2018

Yes, Virginia (Dare), there is a War On The White Working Class, and the judicial lynching of Michael Drejka for shooting a black man, at first acknowledged by law enforcement to be self-defense but later converted under black political pressure into an incredible twenty-year jail sentence, is the latest example.

On July 19, 2018, black Britany Jacobs drove her black “boyfriend,” Markeis McGlockton, 28, and their three children to a Clearwater FL convenience store. She parked illegally in a handicapped parking space, even though five adjacent parking spaces were available. The 6 foot plus McGlockton went inside the store with the couple’s eldest child.

White Michael Drejka, 47, admonished Jacobs to obey the parking laws.

The next thing Drejka knew, he was on the ground and in pain. The much larger McGlockton had come out of the store without his child, strolled up to Drejka as if he were passing him, and suddenly blindsided him, flattening him on the asphalt.

McGlockton then moved towards Drejka to continue his battery. His girlfriend Jacobs exited their vehicle, leaving their small children inside, to join him.

Still on the ground, Drejka reached for his concealed pistol, and drew it. Seeing the weapon, McGlockton took a couple of steps back. Drejka shot McGlockton once in the chest. McGlockton staggered back to the convenience door, entered, and fell dead.

Who was the attacker, and whom the attacked?

At first, law enforcement judged that McGlockton was the attacker.

On July 21, 2018 Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri declared of Drejka, “He had to shoot to defend himself. Those are the facts, and that’s the law.”

Sheriff Gualtieri also said, “It’s within the bookends of force being justified,” and “Our job is to enforce the law equally and fairly, and that’s what we’ve done.”

But we live in an age in which facts and laws can be “disappeared” or reinvented on the spot.

At the time, even I fell for the national Main Stream Media’s presentation of the incident. The MSM showed the video of McGlockton slamming Drejka, Drejka hitting the ground, reaching for his weapon, and shooting McGlockton dead with one round, and announcing that the men had fought “over a parking space.” That made it seem as though Drejka, in some sort of “parking rage,” had argued with and murdered McGlockton, in order to take a parking space that the dead man had wanted.

In fact, there had been no argument. McGlockton and Drejka had not exchanged words, or even looks.

I should have known better. After all, I was dealing with the Lying Press, in a case in which a white man had killed a black man. When is the last time the Lügenpresse told the truth in such a case? The 19th century? (I thank Ted Wilson for his invaluable research into this case which changed my mind, as to Michael Drejka’s criminal culpability).

The alliance of the Lügenpresse and black demagogues declared war on Michael Drejka, a white working stiff with no influence and no resources. Guess who won?

Pinellas County State’s Attorney Bernie McCabe suddenly saw the light, and declared that Michael Drejka was the attacker, and Markeis McGlockton the attacked.

Britany Jacobs’ statement, cited at the head of this article, unwittingly made Drejka’s case for him. She never had a “right” to park illegally, and her “man” had no right to blindside a man who had not harmed him, Jacobs, or their children in any way.

But at CBS News, veteran Lügenpresse “reporter” Meg Oliver sucked up to Britany Jacobs—who, if anything, started the whole chain of events:

Oliver: “McGlockton took his five-year-old son inside to buy snacks. Less than three minutes later, he was gunned down for parking here illegally.”

Jacobs: “He was just trying to protect me and his kids.”

Oliver: “Britany Jacobs saw her boyfriend of nine years, Markeis McGlockton, shot and killed in front of her.

“Last Thursday, they went to a convenience store with their three children.

“McGlockton walked inside with their five-year-old son.

“That’s when Michael Drejka approached Jacobs. She said he berated her for parking in a handicap space without a permit.

Jacobs: “He wanted me to, you know, move my car. But you know, I have my right to park anywhere I want to park.

“Surveillance footage shows McGlockton walk out of the store and shove Drejka to the ground. Seconds later, Drejka pulled his gun and shot McGlockton once, in the chest.

“The 28-year-old stumbled back into the store and collapsed in front of his son.

Oliver to Britany Jacobs: “What did he take from you?”

Jacobs: [Shakes head; sighs repeatedly] “Man. My soul. You know, My partner. You know, We did everything together. You know, It’s… it’s tough.

“But Jacobs says McGlockton backed away from Drejka, after he pushed him.”

[That’s a lie. After McGlockton blindsided Drejka, he moved towards him, to inflict more punishment. McGlockton only took a couple of steps back when Drejka pulled his gun—NS.]

“This is wrong, because all my man was doing was protecting his girl, like anybody else would.”

Protect her from what?

The language Jacobs used is the same used by her black supporters and those of the Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown hoaxes: A white telling a black woman she’s breaking the law counts as an “assault,” but a gigantic black man blindsiding a white man, knocking him down, and seeking to pummel or stomp him into mush is a justifiable “defense” of his girlfriend.

McGlockton’s supporters say things like: Drejka should have “minded his own business.” But he was minding his own business. In a free society, civilians have the right and the duty to intervene against miscreants. And the people who claim white civilians have no right to be “wannabe cop s,” also deny the police the right to enforce the law against blacks.

In effect, they demand that neither civilians nor policemen interfere with black criminals. They seek to replace the rule of law with the rule of crime.

The usual suspects flocked to Pinellas County: the cop-killer group Black Lives Matter, black demagogue lawyer Benjamin Crump, Al Sharpton, et al.

Pinellas County prosecutor Scott Rosenwasser dug into Drejka’s past to find anything he could transform into proof that he’s a “racist,” while nobody was interested in McGlockton’s possible history of racism. The prosecution also cited a previous time that Drejka had admonished a black man for parking illegally in a handicapped space as “proof” that he was somehow a racist.

The new dispensation: blacks have a right to turn whites into punching bags, and whites (or those “white-enough”) have no right to self-defense, or even to complain when blacks break a rule or a law. Hence the movement, initially to destroy the lives of whites, and now to prosecute them for even complaining about blacks breaking laws and contractual rules at every level.

John Derbyshire needs to amend The Talk. (The late Lawrence Auster,whose book Our Borders, Ourselves, has just been published posthumously, had some suggestions here. Example: “10(m) If you see a black man drop a beer bottle or other trash outside your home, do not ask him, even very politely, to pick it up.”)

On August 23, 2019, Michael Drejka was convicted of manslaughter. On October 10, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

“[Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge Joseph] Bulone described a lengthy analysis in arriving at 20 years for the sentence, at one point echoing attorneys for McGlockton’s family in calling Drejka a ‘wannabe law enforcement officer.’”…

(Imagine that: white Judge Bulone reducing himself to being Benjamin Crump’s ventriloquist’s dummy. Every time Crump represents the family of a black thug who attacked a white or white-enough man who shot him, Crump calls the “white” man, “a wannabe cop.”

“Let me say this about the video: believe your own eyes,” Bulone said. “If you look at that video, Markeis is not advancing.”

“The evidence in this case shows the defendant created conflict and created a confrontation,” the judge said, and “that he shot and killed an unarmed man who was backing up.”

[Michael Drejka sentenced to 20 years in parking lot shooting| Supporters stayed away from the Thursday hearing, his attorney said, out of fear for their safety , by Kathryn Varn, Tampa Bay Times, October 11, 2019.]

Drejka’s defense attorney, John Trevena, told me in an interview that he will be appealing both the jury verdict and the sentence: “We always planned on appealing the jury verdict, but when the judge departed from the sentencing guidelines, we felt that was additional grounds for the appeal.”

Trevena is convinced that the State’s Attorney Bernie McCabe only prosecuted, in bowing to “political pressure from the African-American community.”

Trevena said: “Our sheriff, Bob Gualtieri is one of the pre-eminent sheriffs in Florida. He’s head of the [Florida] Sheriffs Association” (a lawyer, and an expert on Stand Your Ground Law and the Williams Rule). “If he felt that, why would he be charged?”

Trevena adamantly maintained that the presiding judge, Circuit Court Judge Joseph Bulone, railroaded his client: “I liken him to being the third prosecutor wearing a robe. Every ruling went to the State. He prohibited the Sheriff from testifying.

“The state used the argument that McGlockton was retreating,” Travena says. “The sheriff watched the videos, and said what the victim [McGlockton] was doing was ‘blading,’ where a person turns to the side. An attack posture. We had a litany of experts who agreed. Again, the judge crippled us by prohibiting Sheriff Gualtieri and other experts from testifying.”

The defense will be filing its initial brief to the Second District Court of Appeals presently. The process could take eight to 12 months within the State of Florida.

Where American justice now stands: blacks have a “right” to attack whites who pose no threat to them (John Derbyshire recently recounted the Long Island case of a black man, John White, who got away with murder in the case of a white teenager, who had posed no threat to him.)

This “right” was the implicit basis of the malicious prosecution, including a conspiracy to suborn perjury, of George Zimmerman for being so uppity as to think he had a right to live when Trayvon Martin sought to bludgeon him to death, using the sidewalk as his weapon.

In 2014, the same m.o. was used to try and railroad white Officer Darren Wilson for not granting Mike Brown the right to murder him.

When Drejka’s case ended, and he thanked his attorneys and was taken to the jail section, McGlockton’s supporters stared daggers at him. That was not because of righteous rage, but black racial hatred.

The late Sam Francis coined a phrase for this: “anarcho-tyranny”—the government and other powers that be grant license to criminals, while terrorizing the law-abiding.

Since most crimes in this country are committed by blacks and browns, and most whites are law-abiding, there is an unavoidable racial component to American anarcho-tyranny

You may not be interested in race war. But race war is interested in you.

  1. It wasn’t his job to enforce parking laws. Once the gun was drawn the attack ended.

    The shooter is an idiot, and there’s consequences for that. A man is dead and he’s going to jail. It’s how our justice system works. He doesn’t get to explain his way out of it. The shooter initiated the confrontation, and when the attack ended, he should have stood down, instead he fired. Enforcement of the law wasn’t his job, and you don’t get to shoot someone because they pushed you down.

    “I was in fear for my life” element of the shooting was removed when the attacker began to move away from the shooter. At that point, it became an unjustifiable shooting.

    The (((media))) said the video contradicted Drejka’s claim of self defense but they must have watched a different video as this is clearly a case of self defense and stand your ground. However, since blacks are the master race then self defense and stand your ground is no longer a valid defense.

    I also think you had a corrupt, partisan judge and ding bat jurors who wanted to “get it right” after they felt the Trayvon Martin jury got it wrong.

    This is Trump’s America, folks. I suspect Ron Desantis is too much of a coward to grant a pardon but if the races were reversed he’d virtue signal.

    The video linked here doesn’t show it, but he turned to walk away, so you’re wrong.

    Do you carry concealed? If you did, you would know Drejka shouldn’t have initiated the confrontation, acted menacingly toward the woman, at one point putting his finger in her face, and caused a scene that people going in and out were wondering what was going on, and continued the confrontation for several minutes, when he could have made his point and walked away. The victim in this case stepped back and started to turn away when he was shot one time in the stomach.

    Drejka would probably admit it’s the stupidest thing he’s ever done in his life and wished he had stayed in his vehicle and minded his own business. Instead, he killed a person over a stupid handicapped parking space.

    His biggest mistake was initiating and continuing to press a confrontation while armed. He got what he deserved.

    I think that reaction time plays an important role in this question. After watching the video I think it is clear that after McGlockton attacked Drejka and started advancing again, Drejka was justified in believing that deadly force was necessary to prevent death or serious bodily injury. Of course, once McGlockton started backing up that justificiation was removed. That’s where reaction time comes in. I found this in a Florida driving manual:

    The average human reaction time of ¾ of a second is based on a laboratory setting where the driver is prepared and waiting for the measurement of reaction time. In actual emergency driving situations, a driver’s actual reaction time may be more than ¾ of a second. Actual reaction time of an average driver is approximately 1.5 seconds during daylight and 2.5 seconds at night.

    I think that it is likely that by the time Drejka had processed that McGlockton was attacking him and still advancing and had then made the decision to fire and was in the process of doing that, McGlockton had already started to backup as a reflex to being surprised by the gun. Because of the short amount of time involved here, Drejka likely didn’t have time to react to McGlockton backing up in order to reconsider his decision to fire. After he fired and his brain finished processing the fact that McGlockton had started backing up, his thought was probably Oh Sh**!

    The huge amounts of adrenaline experienced in a situation like that make it hard to think straight or even aim properly. Prosecutions after a self defense shooting should take that into account. The choice to fire will often be made in 1 – 2 seconds and then second guessed for years. At least Drejka had a gun and was able to save himself from a good chance of being seriously injured or killed. Hopefully he can get his sentence reduced to within the norm for what he was convicted for.

    Just what confrontation did the shooter initiate? Telling someone they are breaking a law isn’t a confrontation. In this case, the only confrontation was the driver telling the shooter to piss off.
    The shooter was ambushed by a second party. An ambush is not a confrontation.
    From the article, there is no evidence he was trying to enforce the law, that is an assumption.

    The next thing Drejka knew, he was on the ground and in pain. The much larger McGlockton had come out of the store without his child, strolled up to Drejka as if he were passing him, and suddenly blindsided him, flattening him on the asphalt.

    That is more than being pushed to the ground. That is Polar bear hunting.

    What do you not understand about that not being “turned to walk away”?

    Spoken like a true negro. Drejka confronting the sheboon over illegally parking in handicapped is not advisable but also not against the law. Blacks are notorious for parking in handicap and just last week I saw one do it at Walgreens. The first crime was committed by McGlockton when he violently shoved Drejka to the ground and committed felony assault.

    At that point Drejka was perfectly reasonable to believe he was in danger of great bodily harm. When you’ve just been shoved to the ground and your attacker backs up maybe one or two steps but is still standing menacingly over you you are in fight or flight mode.

    Agree.

    We whites have laws and rules that we follow in order to make society civilized; in fact to make civilization at all. Too often Negroes and other Paperwork Americans disregard these rules.

    Congratulations to Mr. Drejka for standing up to this Negro, who had simply trampled all over whitey’s rules before cowering whites in the past. But he did it one too many times. If all white people were like Mr. Drejka, the Negro criminality problem would be drastically diminished. Negroes are cowards when facing a tougher opponent (as we saw here).

    The softer and more lenient you are towards Negroes, the more violent and criminal they will become. This is why African chiefs are quite harsh. The faster whites learn this lesson, the better.

    In Australia there is legal precedent after a long campaign that ‘One Punch Can Kill’. This is used to ensure that anyone who attacks another, unprovoked or not, can be charged with murder through the knowledge that their attack had the capacity to kill and cause grevious injury instead of simple manslaughter. If you are attacked you have grounds to assume that every single punch is a deadly attack, and as such should be free to respond to protect your life.

    It is not up to a victim to assess the intent of an attacker, whether or not he should have ‘stood down’ or defended himself, any unprovoked attack such as that on Drejka should be considered deadly force and he had every right to remove any threat to his person.

    Tell me, you’ve just been assaulted from behind and disorientated, are you going to assume that you’re right to back off because surely the attacker isn’t going to follow up and cause your further injury? No. You are going to defend yourself and you have every right to. McGlockton initated force against Drejka with no reason to, he wasn’t even communicating with him, and in return Drejka used force against McGlockton causing his death. That is his fault and the consequences of his choices.

    I hate your types because you’re the most dull and unimaginitive drones subservient to the system, you write:

    It’s how our justice system works. He doesn’t get to explain his way out of it.

    Indeed, the legal system is the be all and end all of morality for the world. How come the Jews get to ‘explain’ their way out of Hitler’s legal supposed holocaust? How come slaves got to ‘explain’ their way out of the legal slavery system? The law is malleable and changes based on each incident due to common law so appealing to legality is fundementally redundent. There is also stand your ground laws and concealed carry laws to empower and provide legal precedent to these types of cases. Yet you ignore all of this due to your simplistic view of the world.

    Perhaps you would prefer it if America cucked out like Australia where when a criminal invades your personal property with the intent to commit further crimes and you defend yourself you become the criminal? https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/man-dies-after-breaking-into-home-in-newcastle-and-being-detained-by-homeowner-20160327-gnruib.html

    Or maybe you think that armed robbers should get a pass too, because after all maybe they weren’t going to shoot, we can’t tell their intent, maybe they were going to back away after the robbery! https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/armed-robber-shot-and-killed-family-blames-the-clerk-saying-he-shouldnt-have-had-a-weapon-at-work/

    The fact is if you would prefer any of these, or that Drejka gets charged with murder, you’re giving up the fundemental right to protect yourself and relying on whatever legal mumbo-jumbo the lawyer class comes up with to provide you the basic right to decide whether you live or die when it comes down to it. Are you a man or are you a worm? If you don’t go around assaulting people how is this going to affect you? It won’t at all. Well, unless you get shot by the local black community with illegal weapons that the law wouldn’t stop. Maybe then you would think “I wish I hadn’t voted to end concealed carry” just before they gun you down.

    So we know that Black Lives Matters activism now trumps the evidence and rule of law. If the races were reversed and McGlockton fired a shot after getting violently knocked to the ground by Drejka then BLM would have demanded his release if he got arrested and argued that he was defending himself against a white supremacist.

    Black skin privilege is proven real yet again and whites have simply traded places with blacks pre 1965. The evidence in a case doesn’t matter. Only race does and since blacks have a de facto higher legal status than whites they can violently knock us to the ground and we cannot defend ourselves.

    Words of wisdom. I think you have to be a bit Aspberger’s ish to remonstrate with blacks or their friends. A young black response is quite likely to be a sudden right hander that can send a middle age white man’s head to the kerb and in effect kill with one punch. Concealed carry is no defence against that.

    The judge said “wanna-be police officer” several times in his remarks, which should give an idea of Drejka had no criminal record, but they brought up road rage incidents he had been involved and his unsalubriously tough looking. appearance did not belie his history, which included confrontations with women drivers.

    His biggest mistake was aiming two handed and dawdling before firing. If he had done a one handed quickdraw and instant instinctively aimed shot while the black fellow was square on in a menacing posture and without time to angle slightly away on the back foot, Drejka might still have been in an excellent position to defend his actions in a court of law. Instead he did everything except brace his elbow on his knee Son of Sam style.

    The passerby having time to see the gun and alter course and swerve around the incident during the apreciable time while the gun was held rock steady two handed on McGlockton only emphasised just how Drejka did not strike while the iron was hot. By the time he decided to pull the trigger he had succeeded in scaring McGlockton. Drejka could have got to his feet with the gun still aimed (very intimidating) and told McGlockton to back off, but as far as shooting goes he had missed the boat. The moral is you can scare them or kill them, not both, and threatening people with guns is storing up trouble for the future, especially if you ever plan on pleading self defence.

    ″I didn’t have any choice. If I hadn’t shot him, he would have hit me in the head with the brick,″ he said.

    But prosecution witnesses said Mansfield had dropped the brick and was backing away when Loeb, 35, opened fire

    George Loeb was convicted in Jacksonville an almost exactly similar case that happened in 1991. All they have to do is stop coming at you when they see the gun and shuffle back a fraction and/or say “You are not worth it” and hunting season is suddenly over.

    Total lack of baldness and evidence of severe acne (long known to be associated with criminal tendencies) is hardly an asset when you find yourself in court accused of criminal violence and are depending on the jury assuming good faith on your part. Even though it was hiding the chin acne, his stubble goatee was a bad mistake.

    I have watched the video several times, unfortunately there is a glitch which obscures a critical fraction of a second which may have a bearing on the matter. However, some observations :-

    Firstly, the black couple both clearly have/had an attitude problem

    Jacobs: “He wanted me to, you know, move my car. But you know, I have my right to park anywhere I want to park.”

    Isn’t true or reasonable. She clearly didn’t feel intimidated either as she had opened the door, clearly to leave the car.

    Equally, a passably civilised person witnessing a verbal altercation between their partner and an unknown other, would have intervened verbally rather than with a violent physical assault.

    Having said that, however many times I watch the (admittedly glitchy) video, I cannot see a justification for the use of deadly force. From what I can see the assault was over. As I understand it neither parking in a disabled space, nor pushing someone over (however violently) currently carries a death sentence. I agree that there was considerable provocation so the 20 years sentence is unusually harsh but the gun should not have been fired.

    As I understand it, baldness is usually associated with high testosterone levels. I find it unlikely that lack of baldness is likely to be associated with criminal tendencies, more likely the opposite I would have thought. Would you care to provide some evidence for this alleged association?

    Whites didn’t “trade places” with blacks. Pre 1965, the vast majority of white on black punishments, both legal and extralegal, were in direct response to groid wrongdoing. Now, the groids are still doing wrong and getting away with it.

    The judge said “wanna-be police officer” several times in his remarks, which should give an idea of Drejka had no criminal record, but they brought up road rage incidents

    And the judge was making value judgements against Drejka which should be immediate grounds for a mistrial. This judge got emotionally invested in the case which shows he’s unfit to sit on the bench.

    The “dawdling” by Drejka can be explained by having the wind knocked out of him and taking a few seconds to try to make sense of what just happened. If you ever played football you’d know that when you’re watching film of the game things look slightly different to you out on the field vs. watching the film in a comfortable chair the following Monday.

    You’re unfairly placing the onus entirely on Drejka and failing to consider that he’s human and cannot react like a perfect robot. McGlockton shares much of the blame. He could have just told Drejka to F off, hopped in the ghettomobile and left the premises.

    If the prosecution dredged up Drejka’s road rage incidents they were irrelevant to the case and done only to prejudice the jury and paint Drejka as some sort of loose cannon who’s a danger to the public. No doubt Drejka’s imperfect but he still had a fairly clean record unlike McGlockton who I’m sure had an arrest record and run ins with Johnny law.

    Either Drejka had crappy legal counsel or the deck was stacked against him from the start. Twenty years is cruel and unusual punishment and should be reduced to 2-3 years if he must do any time.

    Well that just shows how McGlockton could have beaten Drejka to a pulp if he had followed up instantly, but didn’t and therefore was not intent on doing anything other that what he had already done. McGlockton had the opportunity, but didn’t take it. Had Drejka been blind side punched (which a dangerous black would have done rather than pushing him) he would have been dazed or unconscious and unable to pull his gun. I dare say Drejka knew where to find find dangerous blacks, but he preferred the store where he could be relaxed because the worst thing that was going to happen was he’d get shoved over and so would be able to whip out his concealed carry instead of being sneakily knocked out (and quite possibly stomped into a coma with his .40 Glock still in its holster).

    If the prosecution dredged up Drejka’s road rage incidents they were irrelevant to the case and done only to prejudice the jury and paint Drejka as some sort of loose cannon who’s a danger to the public.

    There was testimony that Drejka’s did almost exactly the same thing before over someone parking in that same space and he was taking photographs of the woman and kids in the car up close during the previous incident which was brought up at the trial, as was the fact that he threatened to shoot the man when he came back and objected to Drejka taking the pictures. Drejka also phoned this previous fellow’s employer up and told him his employee was lucky not to have his head blown off. That was very relevant three witnesses against him establishing a pattern of behaviour. The taking photographs in the previous incident was made great play of in the prosecutor’s closing remarks. They used it to paint Drejka as the unreasonable one in the incident.

    Also, Drejka told detectives that the he could only see McGlockton’s, LEGS, and if he had been backing up, or staying still, he wouldn’t have shot him. By this time he had shot dead a man and was aware he was open to a murder charge, but he went ahead and talked to the police even though he must have known there was surveillance cameras recording better than he could remember, meaning he would get tripped up. Prosecutors could play the footage and say ‘look, he lied about what happened in this detail and that so how can you take his word over him being in fear of his life’. Twenty years!

    Well that just shows how McGlockton could have beaten Drejka to a pulp if he had followed up instantly, but didn’t and therefore was not intent on doing anything other that what he had already done

    Can you read McGlockton’s mind? Do you have a crystal ball? McGlockton could have easily changed his mind and charged Drejka had he began struggling to stand up after getting knocked down. McGlockton could have easily started getting into the car instead of standing over Drejka contemplating whether to do more physical harm.

    You keep forgetting the the first act of violence was committed by McGlockton, not Drejka.

    There was testimony that Drejka’s did almost exactly the same thing before over someone parking in that same space and he was taking photographs of the woman and kids in the car up close

    Again, a little strange and ill advised if true but NOT a crime.

    Drejka also phoned this previous fellow’s employer up and told him his employee was lucky not to have his head blown off.

    This is all a lie. Drejka allegedly told Kelly that if he had a gun he would shoot and kill him, not “blow his head off”. No doubt there are two sides to this story and Kelly made threats to Drejka prior to Drejka’s statement about shooting him (Kelly) but Drejka lawyer’s didn’t allow him to testify, so the prosecution got to control that narrative. Also, from what I can find Kelly appears to be white so Drejka did not confront Britney Jacobs just because she was black.

    Also, Drejka told detectives that the he could only see McGlockton’s, LEGS, and if he had been backing up, or staying still, he wouldn’t have shot him.

    The video doesn’t tell the whole story and it looked different to Drejka who’d just been violently thrown to the ground and was in fight or flight mode.

    Also, your boy McGlockton had prior arrests for assault and battery, cocaine possession, aggravated domestic battery, violently resisting arrest and disorderly conduct some of which are in this link:
    https://www.rapsheets.org/florida/clearwater-jail/MCGLOCKTON_MARKEIS/1309676

    A violent black man with impulse control problems finally got his comeuppance by an armed white guy.

    At least one of the prosecutors was Jewish (Rosenwasser). You’re Jewish, Sean, if I recall correctly.

    My belief is that this case was brought against Drejka to placate the black community and to punish a white man who was seen by the prosecution and judge as one of those “deplorables”.

    The judge could have given Drejka the benefit of the doubt and sentenced him to maybe 2-3 years while telling him to think long and hard about his actions when he gets out.

    “First act of violence”. McGlockton pushed him over which is what the little girl in The Christmas Bunny family movie does to a boy about to hurt her rabbit.

    “Drejka steadies the firearm with both hands,” a detective wrote in his arrest warrant. “McGlockton immediately backs up when confronted with the firearm.”

    See, it was a mistake to aim so carefully and slowly, just like I said

    .Drejka didn’t testify, but jurors heard his voice in an hour-long video of his interview with detectives hours after the shooting

    Always talk to the police!

    One of the key moments came in April when prosecutors Schaub and Scott Rosenwasser successfully argued to allow the jury to hear about a prior gun threat by Drejka.

    The target of the threat, Richard Kelly, said in court this week that he had parked his tanker truck in the same parking space at the same convenience store. Kelly walked out of the store to find Drejka walking around his truck and taking photos. They started to argue.
    Then, Drejka “said, ‘I should shoot you, kill you,’ ” Kelly told jurors.

    Drejka later called Kelly’s boss, John Tyler, who also testified in court. Tyler told jurors that Drejka said that if he had a gun, he could have shot Kelly.

    “I said, ‘I’m sorry you feel that way,’ ” Tyler told the jury. “ ‘I have a gun, and in my training, I was taught to remove myself from ” heated situations. https://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/drejka-attorneys-ex-wife-breaks-into-largo-law-firm-police-say-20190624/

    https://www.tampabay.com/pinellas/michael-drejka-lawyer-john-trevena-walks-back-allegations-apologizes-about-reginald-roundtree-connection-20190213/ Drejka’s defense team has been mired in controversy from the start. The Florida Bar opened an investigation into his first lawyer, Lysa Clifton, after she told reporters she approached Drejka in jail about representing him.

    She was disbarred. Why do people not keep their mouth shut?

    McG didn’t clearly and unequivocally withdraw from the fight he started. He shuffled back three baby steps and put his hands half-heartedly halfway up (we cool!) while Drejka was still dazed on the pavement.

    McGlockton backed up a lot more than I realised from watching other edits. As soon as the gun came out he went into reverse and he was truly frightened, his body English shows it.

    I would also not that Drejka was pushed from behind and landed–on his hands not head– to half roll and and up sitting facing McGlockton

    https://archive.sltrib.com/article.php?id=57102336&itype=cmsid
    As Franklin left the mall parking lot, Manning, an African-American, almost backed into him. Franklin said he laid on his horn and could tell it irritated Manning, who then drove slowly out of the lot “trying to make me mad.” Manning’s passenger, Schwenn, was white. Franklin put his hand on his car horn and kept it there. Finally, Manning stopped his car, got out and walked toward Franklin.

    Franklin said he figured, “Now I’ve done it, I’m getting in a fight with this n——-” after barely getting away with robbing a bank and with a stash of stolen guns. As Manning approached, Franklin reached under his seat and pulled out a .357 Magnum and “bam, bam” shot him twice.

    “He had a scowl on his brow the whole time,” Franklin said. “As soon as he saw that 6-inch barrel, his eyes opened wide in fear. He knew he was a goner.”

    It is of course illegal to open your jacket or otherwise to show you have a firearm just because you are in an argument, but if pushed over like Drejka he had a perfect right to draw and point it at McGlockton. Seeing the fear in his eyes would have been enough for anyone else’s sense of honour. Drejka must have a screw loose to have fired. If not that 90s case, he must have been aware of Trayvon Martin in his home state, Maybe he wanted to be part of similar sensational events, but twenty years imprisonment is a high price to pay.

    comeuppance

    That word shows the problem, because you are allowed to use any amount of force purely defensively, but nothing can be punitive. And nowadays there is always video.

    The simple solution with these law ignoring savages is simply avoid them at all cost barring no choice whatsoever. They’re emotional hand grenades just waiting to go off, especially at even the smallest perceived slight from whitey. This guy’s worst life mistake was stupidly thinking that the brain dead she boon would acquiesce and admit her obvious parking violation. Most of them are too damn lazy to even use turn signals, or stop for emergency vehicles. As someone that is behind the wheel at work often I can say this isn’t an accusation up for debate, it just is. If there’s one thing these churls despise more than anything it’s being admonished by white folk. It’s now a mortal/societal sin in the new world order.

    “The shooter is an idiot”

    For several reasons: He was involving himself unnecessarily in a situation that was not crucial to him. He was doing so at a location apparently mainly frequented by blacks, judging from the video. Why should he care what happens there? The attack had ceased and the attacker could not back up any farther because his car was blocking him. The attacker did not appear to be blading because blading only functions when close enough to throw a punch. The shot was deliberate and not reactive; it was too late to be reactive.

    The verdict was just. The sentence may be also if the shooter had a history of confronting strangers in public spaces. Idiots like this shooter put concealed carry laws in jeopardy and thereby harm white interests.

    Amen. He was blind sided. For all he knew is that there were others waiting to attack him. Negros like to fight iun groups, you know.

  33. @CDebussey

    I agree 100%. What I see happening are the older folks (60-80) simply losing their collective patience and pushing back against what they view as a disgusting culture of destruction, violence and hatred. The church ladies got black fatigue.

    I have been real close to telling-off these dumb-shit lazy blacks that are all over the place now. But as you say they are walking (anti-white) hand grenades. You’ll become the next famous and fired internet “scumbag” for talking the wrong way to a black person these days. In the suburb I work, a grocery store I frequent at lunch has been totally overrun by blacks, all of which carry a real arrogant and hateful disposition. They are constantly parking in the handicap spots. Walking around the grocery store during a workday in pajama bottoms and flip flops with socks, while the rest of the world dresses and acts like civilized human beings. They love flaunting this dysfunction and derangement with a bizarre pride I cannot wrap my head around. I point and laugh at them when I’m in my car. Really sets them off, lol.

    Thanks for the info. I found another mug shots site that provided the dates of each of McGlockton’s known arrests in Florida since turning 18. Note that although he doesn’t seem to have straightened out, there is a long gap in his history.

    One possibility is that later arrests were “disappeared” through the process of issuing him an “ACD” (“adjournment in contemplation of dismissal,” which is what it’s called in New York), and then being expunged. New York City has had at least two “amnesties” of criminals in recent years, for allegedly “low-level misdemeanors.” Note, however, that due to revolutions in New York laws, you can now kill a man with one punch, which used to get you a stretch of a few years for manslaughter, and merely be charged with “third-degree, misdemeanor assault.” In other words, killing a man has in New York been reduced to a low-level misdemeanor.

    Although I found media stories aplenty, form the get-go, on Michael Drejka’s heinous criminal history as a parking cop, not one article I found said anything about McGlockton’s violent, criminal history.
