The mystery of who the black man in the confrontation with Sgt. Jonathan Pentland in a quiet Columbia, South Carolina neighborhood is has finally been solved.

The mass media has kept the supposed victim’s identity a secret from the public out of fear that it would injure the anti-white narrative they have spun, but online sleuths were able to identify the man neighbors had been accusing of groping them and even trying to kidnap a baby as 21-year-old DeAndre Demetrius Williams. Pentland was spurred to action after the mother-in-law of one of Williams’ alleged sexual assault victims knocked on his door and asked him to help.

Pentland, a white drill instructor stationed at Fort Jackson, is being charged with third degree assault for a light shove during the dispute in the viral video. He has since been terrorized by what appear to be state supported rioters picketing outside his home into leaving with his family. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott encouraged the mob with a press conference saying he was charging Pentland to send a message against “bullies.”

Sheriff Lott has a track record of engaging in liberal activism and has used his position in law enforcement to help the Anti-Defamation League lobby for stricter “hate crime” laws.

While Lott is desperate to show off his “woke” credentials, including through a ridiculous partnership with Black Lives Matter established last September to help manage his officers, his law enforcement record is abysmal. Violent crime in Richland County is almost double the national average. Despite being exposed for wide scale corruption in 2019, Lott won “Sheriff of the Year” award last month.

The press’ reluctance to publish Williams’ full name makes sense when looking at his criminal record. He has been previously arrested for drugs and trespassing at a Food Lion, but last month, Williams skipped his court date for a a felony related to the malicious injury of animals.

Generally speaking, failing to appear for a court date in a serious criminal case leads to a bench warrant. In other words, Williams was a fugitive from the law when Pentland made contact with him.

The Richland County court system has mitigated this political problem by suddenly deeming Williams mentally unfit for trial. It is rare for a court to grant an “insanity” defense, and in this case, the timing is evidence that the decision was politically motivated.

While details of the crime in question are unknown at this time, the question as to why a potentially dangerous person with an open case that is so mentally ill he cannot stand trial was allowed to roam through Pentland’s community has never been answered.

For Pentland and his family, they must be forced to stand alone against a Black Lives Matter sponsored Sheriff, a hostile and hyper politicized military command, and criminals on the street.

    … his law enforcement record is abysmal. Violent crime in Richland County is almost double the national average.

    This is embarrassing — it’s well-known that the most reliable statistical predictor of violent crime in an area is the % of the population that is black — per the US Census, Richland County SC is 48.7% black — given that Blacks are approx 13.5% of the population nationally, if violent crime in Richland County is (only) “almost double the national average”, then that’s actually less than one would expect given that the county has approx 3.6x as many blacks, as a % of the population, as the national average — and in any case, per what I said above about the most reliable predictor of violent crime in an area, I don’t think one can necessarily blame law enforcement for the amount of violent crime — I’m reminded of ‘conservatards’ who often blame ‘Democrat’ mayors for violent crime in a city, while ignoring the fact that city has a high % of Blacks.

    That said, I don’t doubt Lott (who is white) is a virtue signaling piece of shit, another member of the praetorian guard for the system who has sold his soul for a salary and a pension (‘Back the blue!’, LOL) — having seen the video, it’s also difficult to unequivocally endorse Pentland’s conduct — and Williams does come across as either mentally impaired or on drugs.

    This should be yet another object lesson for Whites that every confrontation with a non-white, especially a Black, is likely to become what kids used to call a ‘federal case’, and as a White you will at best be treated like a suspect, and may later face inflated, politically motivated charges like Pentland in this case (see also Kyle Rittenhouse et al).

  4. Leftists have White America perpetually on its back foot. Appears that the primary occupation of most ‘our side’ writers is noting supposed hypocrisy of commie pukes. As has been demonstrated, this pains the left, bending them into a more contemplative, self-censorious mode. Checks and balances, what? Good show.

    At root, ‘conservatives’ complain that people they despise are using a strategy that, while it happens to prevail regardless of which ‘side’ (ha!) is in power, is tremendously unfair and underhanded (he said with a pout).

    As the average Billie Eilish fan would burp, “Duh.”

    Pentland, a white drill instructor stationed at Fort Jackson

    A possibly soon-ex-drill instructor as his command chain behaves like a transitioning elephant demanding they’s daily hormone injections.

    Here’s a Remarkably Upside-Down WP Article About the Heroic Sergeant Who Was Arrested for Defending Women and Children from a Lunatic Sex Criminal and Baby-Snatcher

    WaPo is being cited:

    “There was some other things that occurred that really doesn’t justify the actions of” Pentland, Lott said at Wednesday’s news conference. He added, “None of them justified the assault that occurred.”

    “It was terrible, it was unnecessary, it was a bad video,” he added. “The young man was a victim, the individual that was arrested was the aggressor, and he’s been dealt with accordingly.”

    Pentland is a sergeant first class, according to military officials. Social media accounts linked to Pentland said he was a drill sergeant and has been stationed at Fort Jackson since 2019, according to the Associated Press. A Facebook account that appears to be Pentland’s was taken down Wednesday night.

    Brig. Gen. Milford H. Beagle Jr., Fort Jackson’s commanding officer, tweeted Wednesday that the “unfortunate incident” had “brought disrespect to @fortjackson our Army and the trust with the public we serve.”

    Maybe not tweet? It would be a good idea to maybe not tweet.

    He promised “transparency” and shared an earlier statement that “the leaders at Fort Jackson in no way condone the behavior depicted” on the video.

    Even better than “We train young men to drop fire on people, but their commanders won’t allow them to write ‘fuck’ on their airplanes because it’s obscene!”

    Asked at the news conference about people protesting in the neighborhood, the sheriff said there was “no problem with people peacefully protesting.”

    Peaceful protests were consequently intensifying:

    In videos shared on Snapchat and photos posted on Twitter, the crowd congregated past sunset, listening to speakers with a megaphone who spoke about racism, while deputies appeared to be monitoring the group. Two yard signs that said “Black Lives Matter” and “It’s about us” [they are all Narcissists, down to the last one] were at one point erected on Pentland’s lawn.

    What started out as peaceful demonstrations became “disruptive,” a sheriff’s department spokeswoman said Wednesday evening. Deputies were called after 8 p.m. because “unknown protesters” vandalized the house, according to Deputy Sara Blann; they closed access to the street and surrounding area for nonresidents and took Pentland’s family to another location.

  9. When blacks take the knee, it is an act of defiance and strength.
    When whites take the knee, it is an act of deference and weakness.

    In a way, whites taking the knee is like Obedience School. It’s Jews and blacks training whites to be obedient, to ‘sit’ and ‘roll over’.

    That’s what education has become in the West. Obedience School for white dogs.

    eah, we meet again…I think? You are the first person I’ve seen mention what I thought, in my one and only viewing of the video of Pentland – definitely a little on the overly aggressive side. Given the circumstances of now, it’s hard to find fault with it, at least in my opinion. I also wonder what all transpired before taping began – I have no reason to assume we were ‘treated’ to the whole show, right? Maybe that’s just me giving drill sergeant the benefit of the doubt, otherwise, it certainly doesn’t help the white cause (not that there is one, of course) in seeing how “itchin’ for a fight” sergeant appears to be here. I cringed when I saw this video more than anything else. I also laughed at and agreed with whoever had posted it in his having mentioned how small the black man’s feet are.
    I also agree something appeared to be “off” with the black man – drugs or natural mental deficiency I could not ascertain, by either way, not your average black bear.

    Maybe this is why I struggled with this one…the overall awkwardness about it, and that includes the overly aggressive, pushy, “itchin’ for a fight” demeanor our evil white star has. The black “victim” absolutely is too calm, and possibly mental deficiency and/or being under influence of mind-altering substance doesn’t mean much of anything where most blacks are concerned, if anything, it would have made him more animated in most cases.
    I’ve lost track of some of the insanity I’ve learned of over the years and there have been countless times these types of “incidents” were exactly that, staged. This would be equivalent to these black privileged princesses on campus orchestrating their own “hate crimes” – the ones that get big attention until it’s determined they did it to themselves.

    Sailer is an idiot; moreover, all of his posts, no matter the topic/event or its seriousness and importance and implication for Whites, are written in the same mocking style of ‘wry detachment’ — watch the video; there’s nothing ‘heroic’ about Pentland’s actions — compared to Williams, Pentland is physically imposing — if Pentland had reason to suspect Williams of a crime, he should have just held/detained him until the police arrived, while saying (for the benefit of the video) plainly what he was doing and why he was doing it.

    Here’s something else you should know about Sailer: if you give him money, he apparently spends (some of) it on a digital subscription to Jeff Bezos’ WaPo — now that Sailer has gotten his yucks and page views out of Pentland, he’ll leave him to his fate and move on, never having written a useful or interesting word about the matter — rinse and repeat, just like every white American boomer conservatard.

    The before is always missing in the Jew media.

    The Jew media ALWAYS shows the white/cop reaction to black criminality…..but NEVER shows what led up to the white/cop reaction.

    The Jews have been pulling this stunt for YEARS!

    They showed Rodney King getting a beatdown…..clip shown over and over and over…..burned into the national consciousness…..but conveniently they failed to show Rodney King resisting and fighting the cops…..many minutes of tape that would have put the incident into perspective.

    Same with Floyd….you see the full tape and you see how he resisted, was obviously high as a fucking kite, etc.

    Blacks are dumb pawns….dangerous…..stupid…..but not intrinsically evil…..while the small hat media lies and gaslights and INCITES the dumb blacks.

    In another comment I suggested how Pentland could/should have handled the situation differently/better (admittedly this is all in hindsight and after a bit of time to consider; of course I wasn’t there).

    “why base your comment on such an absurd straw man assumption?”

    It’s based upon the part of your original comment that I quoted. Everyone always knows exactly what to do… when they have the ability to calmly consider the situation after they’ve watched it unfold. Pentland deserves credit for the restraint he did clearly show, and it is not for him to assess the negro’s mental state when the latter is clearly out of place and a potential threat.

    Based on your comment where you address how you might handle it, restraining the negro until police arrive might bring the same assault charge as a shove. Pentland seems to be acting simply out of a sense of protection, not out of a desire to involve law enforcement.

    This is all I said about Pentland and his actions: having seen the video, it’s also difficult to unequivocally endorse Pentland’s conduct — do you know what a straw man assumption is? — do you know what unequivocally means? — apparently not — I did not say, or in any way imply, that “physical confrontation is never warranted”, or that I had been taught that — obviously, if Pentland had found Williams attacking a woman or child, then a “physical confrontation” would have been warranted to stop the attack, right?

    When he shoves Williams, whom was Pentland ‘protecting’? — in the video, I did not see Williams physically harassing anyone — maybe he had just done so; I’ve not heard that though.

    Pentland seems to be acting simply out of a sense of protection, not out of a desire to involve law enforcement.

    I’ve not questioned Pentland’s motive; I think he acted out of decency — I find the phrase “desire to involve law enforcement” strange — it has less to do with “desire”, and more to do with whether it was appropriate to involve law enforcement at that (or some) point — and like I said before, if Pentland had good reason to believe Williams had just committed a crime, then it would have been more appropriate to involve law enforcement, e.g. by calling them and detaining Williams until they arrived — and maybe Pentland should have talked less, because I think that’s a big part of the reason he’s in some hot water right now (it’s not just the shove).

    Look, I’m a White Nationalist, which means I’m fed up with all of this ‘negro’ bullshit too — but in the current political climate, we have to be smarter — that’s reality, and basically what I’m saying.

    I agree with much of what you say, especially the last paragraph.

    If you really want to know, as you wrote:

    “I’m always curious to hear how people – who have been wrongly taught that physical confrontation is never warranted – would have handled this situation differently.”

    All that’s needed to know, in modern America, how this situation would go down differently is to switch the races of the two parties involved. Change nothing else–just that.

    If a sketchy looking and acting White man was lurking about a negro’s house, much less if he acted out against a black female and kid, the negro homeowner could have cut the White man’s head off with a machete on video and then sodomized the corpse, and the negroes would be laughing and high fiving over it on WorldStarHipHop and the Grio, the white mainstream cucks would be either docile and silent or else laud the negro for protecting “his” community, the white millenitards would be their usually smug, snarky self-hating selves and offer up memes and stupid anti-White prattle on social media, and the sheriff would have splashed the sketchy guy’s record wall to wall on the media and closed the case. Maybe given the groid an award.

    Circumstances don’t matter-the negro is always right, and the White person is always wrong. In light of black people’s near -universal psychopathy, violence, and dysfunction, this is especially alarming.and destructive. We’re in the grips of mass insanity and denial.

    >It’s illegal to physically restrain someone in most states.

    Yes, after looking into it a bit (I was not so aware) you are correct: it is problematic (to say the least) for a citizen to detain someone, even when that person is suspected of a crime — you have to be very careful and very aware of the circumstances under which such an action is permitted (most people aren’t of course; I wasn’t) — and the way things are today, it’s unlikely prosecutorial discretion would have fallen in his favor — so he was, as anyone in that situation would have been, ‘between a rock and a hard place’, given what he’d likely (just?) been told (what?, and by whom?) — I hope the full truth will come out re exactly why Pentland confronted the guy at that time and place.

    >the bizarro world of Sheriff Lott

    Remember: to become sheriff, you must win an election — and he’s in a county that’s nearly 50% black — so in that sense, his behavior and rhetoric are self-interested and make sense — as a white man he’s a piece of shit of course, part of the praetorian guard and not to be trusted.

    I enjoy your comments – and I’m not really interested in descending into trading insults with those who insight I respect. At this point I’m willing to concede that I misunderstood your comment – I hope that you’ll at least consider that Pentland’s actions weren’t anything extreme or unusual…

    “When he shoves Williams, whom was Pentland ‘protecting’? ”

    …considering his neighbor had just asked for Pentland’s help because the negro had been harassing her or her daughter (can’t remember, don’t have time to go find it). The shove could have been the result of several things.

    “I find the phrase “desire to involve law enforcement” strange ”

    I mean he wasn’t being a Karen or a busybody or even a hero and had no desire to jam the guy up with the police – he saw a threat and tried to deal with it.

    My whole point is we can pick apart Pentland’s actions with comfort and calmness all we want. In the moment its seems his behavior was natural and in control.
