    60-person brawl on cruise ship https://mol.im/a/10967953

    “Carnival Cruise Line! The Dollar Store of the High Seas”

     

    I rent properties, sometimes to black folks, courtesy of HUD. I chose to because HUD traditionally pays top-of-the-market rents without much fuss. I was somewhat surprised when these tenants shared that they occasionally enjoy going on Carnival cruises, since the premise of HUD was to help black people get back on their feet, while paying 2/3 of their rent, until the end of time.

    I would describe my tenants culture as low-key ghetto. Formerly drug dealers, now too old to function in that demographic, stuck in an orbit around social security/disability/HUD, and maybe occasional low-level drug dealing or whatever else they can come up with. Only real trouble comes when they invite younger relatives over. Those relatives bring their ghetto ways with them, and they’re young enough to get things crazy.

    If it’s a popular thing for blacks like these to go on Carnival cruises, rest assured this kind of thing is going to transpire more often, and normal people will become a captive audience.

    Just like in the rental market, it’s all fine and dandy to rent to blacks too old to be "players," but the trouble comes when they invite their younger relatives to join them. You can set your watch by what will happen next. Thankfully, cruise ships have more security cameras than ever before, or an egregious number black people falling overboard would be the latest puzzler for the NYT.

And from there I can sell Hal Holbrook's An Evening with Mark Twain starring Emmett Till to the all black cruise ships.

    Meaningful because the DM readership is hardly the wokest out there, but they’re insisting that Emmett Tills are still happening every day!

    It’s on TV every day isn’t it? That’s the same thing right?

    PS now you have an even better excuse for not approving posts. So you know that my best wishes for a speedy recovery are particularly sincere 😉

  10. Sounds like the Marxists are really, really lazy about doing leg-work research. Till’s case has been on their lips for 70 years, and they only now got someone to go through the courthouse documents and records? I mean, I know lots of reporting has devolved into Google search-email-phonecall-post story, but I thought shoe leather stuff would have been complete on this nonsense. Apparently not.

    Of course, we can use that against Marxists. Know they won’t even do a modicum of research on a subject these days, and sue the bastards. E.g. Covington Kids, Kyle Rittenhouse, etc.

    Although, to be fair, this kind of laziness seems to be generational and endemic to a lot of people in the modern age. I knew a lawyer who would annoy the piss out of court house staff and police and prosecutors by dutifully demanding all records and all recordings of hearings for his client, and then having everything transcribed and copied into his files. And if there was nothing else, he would demand they send him a certified letter stating as such. And then he would review the record thoroughly. Apparently, most lawyers don’t do that for their clients, even on big cases. The results were he got a lot more reversals and a lot better results over all because, you know, he actually had all the evidence and had looked at it, while the other lawyers just had a few documents they’d just barely glanced over.

    Been a long time issue in "journalism". You're right though, it's probably worse now. My uncle was a reporter for the Washington Post back in the 70's and 80's. He got several good scoops and numerous stories searching through endless courthouse documents, because he was the one guy who wasn't "really, really lazy about doing leg-work research".

    It wasn't very glamorous work compared to other journalistic pursuits, but he actually enjoyed it.

    This story is obviously a big nothing, but I wonder how many real stories slip between the cracks because of this type of laziness. Just another mock-worthy aspect of the journalism "profession".

    Those are the rules of ethnic civil war. Blue-on-blue murder is irrelevant. Blue-on-red murder is an understandable reaction to centuries of provocation. Red-on-blue murder is the work of the devil incarnate, and must be avenged to the maximum possible extent. This is the attitude of all sides in many ethnic conflicts, from Northern Ireland to Bosnia to Rwanda. The pretense of a quest for justice is part of the package.

    The prestige media encourage these attitudes in black Americans: they want black Americans to fight. They are literally fomenting an ethnic civil war.
  12. As usual, you have to read to the 10th paragraph to get the REAL story:

    “Relying upon a 67-year-old warrant, while it’s an interesting academic exercise, I think would be unsound police work,” Ronald J. Rychlak, a law professor at the University of Mississippi and an expert in criminal procedure and Mississippi criminal trial practice, said in an interview. “Why would you rely on a 67-year-old warrant if you think you have the cause today to justify it?”

    Efforts to revive the case by the Justice Department foundered in 2007 and again last year, when federal officials said there was not enough evidence to pursue charges. The case had been reopened after a historian said in a 2017 book that Ms. Donham had recanted parts of her accusations against Emmett, including that he had grabbed her and made sexually suggestive remarks.

    In an unfortunate instance of bad luck, the historian’s tape recorder was broken when Donham recanted. You know how that Chinese electronic stuff is – real hit or miss.

    In law, this is called “hearsay” like when a White House intern testifies that Trump tried to grab the steering wheel of his limo on Jan. 6, except that she didn’t really see it happen, but a friend of a friend told her about it and then the Dems put her on national TV and CNN gets all excited for a day until the next horrible terrible no good thing that Trump did is revealed and they can move on to hyperventilating about that one instead. For some strange and obscure reason, courts do not allow hearsay evidence to be presented even though it’s allowed at Congressional hearings and on CNN. Something something about it not being reliable.

    Is this a little bit of a joke(a funny one, to your credit) when you say that the tape recorder was broken? When I try to search online about this topic the sources say that he claims that he hadn't set up the tape recorder or that the tape recorder wasn't running, or that he was still setting it up when she said that.

    He's making a ridiculous claim nonetheless to be sure and your comment still has the spirit of truth in addition to being funny. And it might be that he's also said that it was broken too and that's why he was still trying to set it up or hadn't hat it on or set up at the moment he alleges she recanted, and you read this somewhere. But just to satisfy my and probably others wish for the exact autistic truth could you clarify?

    The problem is Roy Bryant and his half brother went beyond the justified beating and killed Till.

    When Steve started highlighting this NYT minoritarian Biblical style fetish, i read the wiki and some of the old articles. The story in a nutshell:

    Emmett with the rapey genes and small stature in some fit of braggadocio came on to and put his hands on Carolyn Bryant. We don't know what happened, but it was serious enough that she ran from the store to her car to get her gun. It certainly violated--trampled up and down on--all the social norms that allowed the Tills to operate a store out in the boonies with Mrs. Bryant (and sometimes her sister-in-law) there without male escorts.

    This was--to say the least--"trouble". Bryant pretty much had to give Till a beating. Till's Uncle was offering to take care of it himself, but reluctantly surrendered Till. The real problem was Roy Bryant and his half brother were, aggressive low nitwits themselves, and Till was one of those black thugs with attitude and simply would not grovel, apologize, anything. Apparently unrepentant to the end, which pissed Bryant off to the point they killed him.

    The town was disgusted, but they also didn't want to trash the discipline required for maintaining white civilization in the Delta. (A conviction with messaging "a beating was called for but not a killing" was what they should have engineered. But the establishment media showing up made that harder--looking like capitulation.) The Bryants were not heroes but persona non grata and left town.

    Oddly the only person with some sense, was Till's actual biological Aunt. She knew Till had really stepped in it and wanted to pack his ass on the train that night. That was some old style, "these men are stirring up some trouble" down-home black woman wisdom, pre-minoritarianism and hair touching.

    Of course, the minoritarians would have just latched on to some other tale of depraved flyover goyim depravity for their j'accuse! (And Till would have done some raping and stealing and perphaps some murdering before being killed or ending up in prison.)

    I stand amazed that congress, a body of people who demand other people take them seriously, would ever allow hearsay to be considered evidence. It beggars belief.

    What year is this?

    BERLIN —
    A 101-year-old man was convicted in Germany of more than 3,500 counts of accessory to murder on Tuesday for serving at the Nazis’ Sachsenhausen concentration camp during World War II.

    The Neuruppin Regional Court sentenced him to five years in prison.

    The man, who was identified by local media as Josef S., had denied working as an SS guard at the camp and aiding and abetting the murder of thousands of prisoners.

    In the trial, which opened in October, the centenarian said that he had worked as a farm laborer near Pasewalk in northeastern Germany during the period in question.

    -Germany’s leading Jewish group welcomed the ruling.

    “Even if the defendant will probably not serve the full prison sentence due to his advanced age, the verdict is to be welcomed,” said Josef Schuster, the head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

    Everything about this is disgusting. He's 101 years old, decency and civilization (not applicable to the relevant milieu) command he be left alone. For him to continue living is almost certainly physical punishment. But, to smear the blood and worship Saturn as devil's advocate, if we are to be the big masculine heroes who will bother a 101-year-old, he gets five years? So, mass murdering Jews will get you a couple of hours per Jew? No part of this makes any sense.

Something something about it not being reliable.

    Is this a little bit of a joke(a funny one, to your credit) when you say that the tape recorder was broken? When I try to search online about this topic the sources say that he claims that he hadn’t set up the tape recorder or that the tape recorder wasn’t running, or that he was still setting it up when she said that.

    He’s making a ridiculous claim nonetheless to be sure and your comment still has the spirit of truth in addition to being funny. And it might be that he’s also said that it was broken too and that’s why he was still trying to set it up or hadn’t hat it on or set up at the moment he alleges she recanted, and you read this somewhere. But just to satisfy my and probably others wish for the exact autistic truth could you clarify?

    Besides the Skunk Works thing, I think there is also an em-men/ex-men/x-men play on words. According to my brother's comic collection in 1980s, the Marvel X-Men had "customized" SR-71, the function of which was basically the same the as the transporter room in Star Trek: to get the characters to the next plot venue at minimum creative effort.

    Okay, granted, the "ex-men" reference was not this story in particular, but an iSteve theme in general. And em-men is, I take it, a contracted Emmett-men. So yeah, a bit esoteric.

  34. Some more breaking news from CBS News New York:

    A closer look at disparities in NYPD’s homicide clearance rates: “It made me feel like they didn’t care”

    NEW YORK — In a collaboration with CBS News, we examine a crime often going without punishment in our country.

    Barely half of murder cases in the United States get solved. The national homicide clearance rate is at an all-time low, according to FBI data.

    https://assets2.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/78bbfc07-5588-47e7-b7d4-0a46a7079f13/thumbnail/640×360/9c04aaab168bc549ceb2f8fab92b2c82/graph-1-1965-history-cbsnews1.png#

    In the mid-1960s, more than ninety percent of murders were solved, generally resulting in an arrest. By 1990, the percentage fell into the sixties. Then, by 2020—as the number of homicides surged—the national clearance rate dropped to about 50 percent for the first time ever.

    And our analysis with CBS News also discovered a difference by race. The national homicide clearance rate for White victims keeps improving. That’s the blue line at top. Meanwhile, the rate of solving murders for Black and Hispanic victims is much lower. Those are the two lines at the bottom.

    https://assets3.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/19064597-12cf-404f-91c8-767d2819987d/thumbnail/640×360/db911ff704b4fc0ba394fc34846b0d26/screengrab-00004.jpg#

    Solving who murders blacks is harder than ever, because "Snitches get Stitches." The black community kills off snitches, and what's more, social media has made it a lot easier for blacks to spot and locate snitches than ever before, because snitches can't stop bragging, and they think they're invulnerable.

    This isn't whites' fault--well, unless you count giving vile, criminal, disgusting blacks cell phones and internet.

    And now in this edition of "Liberal Lack of Self-Awareness About the Consequences of Their Own Actions", or as the rest of us call it: Thursday.

    By the way, since liberals are manifestly utterly lacking in self-awareness, does that mean we can abort them now? I mean, absence of self-awareness is one of the arguments I've been hearing them advance for why it's okay to abort babies. I get that since the Verdict of Brother Clarence it would only be okay in blue states going forward, but that's where most liberals are anyway, so that's not really an obstacle. And, they are increasingly looking like clumps of cells, sooo...

    Yet if all the murderers were caught and put in prison then the complaint would be too many blacks are in prison. The current situation is the only possible compromise. Blacks kill blacks who kill other blacks keeping the situation relatively under control. The cops turn a blind eye because any other response may possibly destroy not only their careers but also their lives with no corresponding reward.
    It's the same with the hysteria over the repeal of Roe versus Wade. With abortion readily available, the lower classes tend to keep their populations down by killing their young before they are born. The cost of an abortion is a lot less than the costs of later imprisonment. The democrats were not only slave owners, they were also slave breeders and knew a thing or two about genetics. They need a stable voting population, but not at the risk of their lives. Better to pay for an early abortion than having to pay to raise a future thug or entitled liberal.

    “The court has come to the conclusion that, contrary to what you claim, you worked in the concentration camp as a guard for about three years,” presiding Judge Udo Lechtermann said, according to dpa. He added that, in doing so, the defendant had assisted in the Nazis’ terror and murder mechanism.

    “You willingly supported this mass extermination with your activity,” Lechtermann said. “You watched deported people being cruelly tortured and murdered there every day for three years.”

    Yes, Carolyn Bryant was sexually assaulted by Mr.Till, but that didn’t give her a right to not say anything about it so her husband had to find out from some kids.

    “Carnival Cruise Line! The Dollar Store of the High Seas”

    I rent properties, sometimes to black folks, courtesy of HUD. I chose to because HUD traditionally pays top-of-the-market rents without much fuss. I was somewhat surprised when these tenants shared that they occasionally enjoy going on Carnival cruises, since the premise of HUD was to help black people get back on their feet, while paying 2/3 of their rent, until the end of time.

    I would describe my tenants culture as low-key ghetto. Formerly drug dealers, now too old to function in that demographic, stuck in an orbit around social security/disability/HUD, and maybe occasional low-level drug dealing or whatever else they can come up with. Only real trouble comes when they invite younger relatives over. Those relatives bring their ghetto ways with them, and they’re young enough to get things crazy.

    If it’s a popular thing for blacks like these to go on Carnival cruises, rest assured this kind of thing is going to transpire more often, and normal people will become a captive audience.

    Just like in the rental market, it’s all fine and dandy to rent to blacks too old to be “players,” but the trouble comes when they invite their younger relatives to join them. You can set your watch by what will happen next. Thankfully, cruise ships have more security cameras than ever before, or an egregious number black people falling overboard would be the latest puzzler for the NYT.

    Sounds like the Marxists are really, really lazy about doing leg-work research.

I mean, I know lots of reporting has devolved into Google search-email-phonecall-post story, but I thought shoe leather stuff would have been complete on this nonsense. Apparently not.

    Of course, we can use that against Marxists. Know they won't even do a modicum of research on a subject these days, and sue the bastards. E.g. Covington Kids, Kyle Rittenhouse, etc.

    Although, to be fair, this kind of laziness seems to be generational and endemic to a lot of people in the modern age. I knew a lawyer who would annoy the piss out of court house staff and police and prosecutors by dutifully demanding all records and all recordings of hearings for his client, and then having everything transcribed and copied into his files. And if there was nothing else, he would demand they send him a certified letter stating as such. And then he would review the record thoroughly. Apparently, most lawyers don't do that for their clients, even on big cases. The results were he got a lot more reversals and a lot better results over all because, you know, he actually had all the evidence and had looked at it, while the other lawyers just had a few documents they'd just barely glanced over.

    “Carnival Cruise Line! The Dollar Store of the High Seas”

    I was on a train trip once and there was a vibrant group that decided it was time to hit the beer selection in the cafe car. After they bought their second round, the porter showed up, pulled the apparent leader aside and told him the bar was closed. He was shutting it down before anything got started.

  56. I find this infuriating.

    The woman in question was attractive, young, white, and running a store in a predominately black area; the zeitgeist is suggested by the fact that her husband or another male relative always picked her up from work and drove her home.

    So an aggressive young black hits on her. She’s supposed to not mention it to anyone? Just do nothing and see how the situation develops? Go into work the next day and see what comes next?

    It’s unfortunate Emmitt Till was killed. That was unnecessary. But up to that point, everything played out about as it had to if whites were going to keep living and working in that area in something other than a state of constant fear.

    If you don’t like that, fine — but that’s how things were. The woman certainly didn’t commit a crime — or even do anything reprehensible. She’d have been a damned fool to have done anything else.

    The problem is Roy Bryant and his half brother went beyond the justified beating and killed Till.

    When Steve started highlighting this NYT minoritarian Biblical style fetish, i read the wiki and some of the old articles. The story in a nutshell:

    Emmett with the rapey genes and small stature in some fit of braggadocio came on to and put his hands on Carolyn Bryant. We don’t know what happened, but it was serious enough that she ran from the store to her car to get her gun. It certainly violated–trampled up and down on–all the social norms that allowed the Tills to operate a store out in the boonies with Mrs. Bryant (and sometimes her sister-in-law) there without male escorts.

    This was–to say the least–“trouble”. Bryant pretty much had to give Till a beating. Till’s Uncle was offering to take care of it himself, but reluctantly surrendered Till. The real problem was Roy Bryant and his half brother were, aggressive low nitwits themselves, and Till was one of those black thugs with attitude and simply would not grovel, apologize, anything. Apparently unrepentant to the end, which pissed Bryant off to the point they killed him.

    The town was disgusted, but they also didn’t want to trash the discipline required for maintaining white civilization in the Delta. (A conviction with messaging “a beating was called for but not a killing” was what they should have engineered. But the establishment media showing up made that harder–looking like capitulation.) The Bryants were not heroes but persona non grata and left town.

    Oddly the only person with some sense, was Till’s actual biological Aunt. She knew Till had really stepped in it and wanted to pack his ass on the train that night. That was some old style, “these men are stirring up some trouble” down-home black woman wisdom, pre-minoritarianism and hair touching.

    Of course, the minoritarians would have just latched on to some other tale of depraved flyover goyim depravity for their j’accuse! (And Till would have done some raping and stealing and perphaps some murdering before being killed or ending up in prison.)

    Sounds like the Marxists are really, really lazy about doing leg-work research. Till's case has been on their lips for 70 years, and they only now got someone to go through the courthouse documents and records? I mean, I know lots of reporting has devolved into Google search-email-phonecall-post story, but I thought shoe leather stuff would have been complete on this nonsense. Apparently not.

    Of course, we can use that against Marxists. Know they won't even do a modicum of research on a subject these days, and sue the bastards. E.g. Covington Kids, Kyle Rittenhouse, etc.

    Although, to be fair, this kind of laziness seems to be generational and endemic to a lot of people in the modern age. I knew a lawyer who would annoy the piss out of court house staff and police and prosecutors by dutifully demanding all records and all recordings of hearings for his client, and then having everything transcribed and copied into his files. And if there was nothing else, he would demand they send him a certified letter stating as such. And then he would review the record thoroughly. Apparently, most lawyers don't do that for their clients, even on big cases. The results were he got a lot more reversals and a lot better results over all because, you know, he actually had all the evidence and had looked at it, while the other lawyers just had a few documents they'd just barely glanced over.

    Fastidiousness and personal control over your work go a long way.

    Efforts to revive the case by the Justice Department foundered in 2007 and again last year, when federal officials said there was not enough evidence to pursue charges. The case had been reopened after a historian said in a 2017 book that Ms. Donham had recanted parts of her accusations against Emmett, including that he had grabbed her and made sexually suggestive remarks.
     

    In an unfortunate instance of bad luck, the historian's tape recorder was broken when Donham recanted. You know how that Chinese electronic stuff is - real hit or miss.

    Some more breaking news from CBS News New York:

    A closer look at disparities in NYPD’s homicide clearance rates: “It made me feel like they didn’t care”

    NEW YORK — In a collaboration with CBS News, we examine a crime often going without punishment in our country.

    Barely half of murder cases in the United States get solved. The national homicide clearance rate is at an all-time low, according to FBI data.

    https://assets2.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/78bbfc07-5588-47e7-b7d4-0a46a7079f13/thumbnail/640x360/9c04aaab168bc549ceb2f8fab92b2c82/graph-1-1965-history-cbsnews1.png#

    In the mid-1960s, more than ninety percent of murders were solved, generally resulting in an arrest. By 1990, the percentage fell into the sixties. Then, by 2020—as the number of homicides surged—the national clearance rate dropped to about 50 percent for the first time ever.

    And our analysis with CBS News also discovered a difference by race. The national homicide clearance rate for White victims keeps improving. That’s the blue line at top. Meanwhile, the rate of solving murders for Black and Hispanic victims is much lower. Those are the two lines at the bottom.

    https://assets3.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/19064597-12cf-404f-91c8-767d2819987d/thumbnail/640x360/db911ff704b4fc0ba394fc34846b0d26/screengrab-00004.jpg#

    Solving who murders blacks is harder than ever, because “Snitches get Stitches.” The black community kills off snitches, and what’s more, social media has made it a lot easier for blacks to spot and locate snitches than ever before, because snitches can’t stop bragging, and they think they’re invulnerable.

    He's making a ridiculous claim nonetheless to be sure and your comment still has the spirit of truth in addition to being funny. And it might be that he's also said that it was broken too and that's why he was still trying to set it up or hadn't hat it on or set up at the moment he alleges she recanted, and you read this somewhere.

    To be 100%, totally, autistically truthful, he said that she confessed while he was still setting up his tape recorder.

    This makes perfect sense {for the autistic- sarcasm alert}.

    This poor woman and indeed the ancient case of Emmett Till had fallen into total obscurity, overshadowed by the literally tens of thousands of black men who have been murdered in subsequent decades (mostly by other black men) and continuing to the present day, few of which are ever solved because, in the ghetto, witnesses who come forward to the police are often themselves murdered.

    Then one fine day, a Leftist college professor/ bestselling author (a man who does well by doing good) shows up at her house. FINALLY, a chance to get this off of her chest after so many decades. She had been praying that someone would finally take an interest in the case of the forgotten Emmett Till and now her prayers were answered!

    Before Tyson could even set up his microphone, she blurted out the awful truth - she had lied to her late husband in order to make him jealous. Emmett Till had never laid a hand on her or said anything disrespectful to her. She had perjured herself on the witness stand!

    Please, please, she said, would the national press or Federal or state prosecutors or SOMEONE take an interest in her case so that she could spend her old age in prison rather than in a nursing home and receive her deserved punishment for defaming a Black person, leading to his death. It was true that she had run to her car and gotten her gun as soon as she was able to get away from Till, but this was only because her encounter with this polished young man and his crisply ironed trousers, so polished that he could have been the son of a President, reminded her that her own weapon was badly in need of polishing.

    60-person brawl on cruise ship https://mol.im/a/10967953

    “Carnival Cruise Line! The Dollar Store of the High Seas”

     

    I rent properties, sometimes to black folks, courtesy of HUD. I chose to because HUD traditionally pays top-of-the-market rents without much fuss. I was somewhat surprised when these tenants shared that they occasionally enjoy going on Carnival cruises, since the premise of HUD was to help black people get back on their feet, while paying 2/3 of their rent, until the end of time.

    I would describe my tenants culture as low-key ghetto. Formerly drug dealers, now too old to function in that demographic, stuck in an orbit around social security/disability/HUD, and maybe occasional low-level drug dealing or whatever else they can come up with. Only real trouble comes when they invite younger relatives over. Those relatives bring their ghetto ways with them, and they’re young enough to get things crazy.

    If it’s a popular thing for blacks like these to go on Carnival cruises, rest assured this kind of thing is going to transpire more often, and normal people will become a captive audience.

    Just like in the rental market, it’s all fine and dandy to rent to blacks too old to be "players," but the trouble comes when they invite their younger relatives to join them. You can set your watch by what will happen next. Thankfully, cruise ships have more security cameras than ever before, or an egregious number black people falling overboard would be the latest puzzler for the NYT.

    The lamentation of of Till's death among commenters here is interesting. Because the same people here who lament Till's death are the same people who lament the decline of our country, and are the same people who don't seem to see the connection.

    Till brought his own death upon himself, just like every single other media ordained negro martyr that is discussed here. The story goes he remained defiant and without contrition throughout his beating. So ask yourself, was this a person who was going to learn his lesson and be a good boy from there on out? Or was he very likely to continue on with the same sort of behavior until he finally got to the point where instead of groping, he was dragging some white store clerk into the back and raping/killing her?

    His death almost certainly saved one or many other white women from being assaulted in the future.

    It's so easy to judge his killers as dumb rednecks (Another Dad, etc) but at least they knew they must do what it takes to maintain their standard of living, which was much better then than it is now. That makes them a hell of a lot smarter than any of us, who have been conditioned to think that violence automatically equals evil. It doesn't. Physical confrontation solves a great many problems.

    Of course minorities want us to believe violence is bad. That's because they are outnumbered. As the minoritarians assume the majority all of a sudden violence is ok (antifa, blm) It's the same inversion they use with the concept of free speech.

    Some more breaking news from CBS News New York:

    A closer look at disparities in NYPD’s homicide clearance rates: “It made me feel like they didn’t care”

    NEW YORK — In a collaboration with CBS News, we examine a crime often going without punishment in our country.

    Barely half of murder cases in the United States get solved. The national homicide clearance rate is at an all-time low, according to FBI data.

    https://assets2.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/78bbfc07-5588-47e7-b7d4-0a46a7079f13/thumbnail/640x360/9c04aaab168bc549ceb2f8fab92b2c82/graph-1-1965-history-cbsnews1.png#

    In the mid-1960s, more than ninety percent of murders were solved, generally resulting in an arrest. By 1990, the percentage fell into the sixties. Then, by 2020—as the number of homicides surged—the national clearance rate dropped to about 50 percent for the first time ever.

    And our analysis with CBS News also discovered a difference by race. The national homicide clearance rate for White victims keeps improving. That’s the blue line at top. Meanwhile, the rate of solving murders for Black and Hispanic victims is much lower. Those are the two lines at the bottom.

    https://assets3.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/19064597-12cf-404f-91c8-767d2819987d/thumbnail/640x360/db911ff704b4fc0ba394fc34846b0d26/screengrab-00004.jpg#

    BERLIN —
    A 101-year-old man was convicted in Germany of more than 3,500 counts of accessory to murder on Tuesday for serving at the Nazis’ Sachsenhausen concentration camp during World War II.


    The Neuruppin Regional Court sentenced him to five years in prison.

    The man, who was identified by local media as Josef S., had denied working as an SS guard at the camp and aiding and abetting the murder of thousands of prisoners.

    In the trial, which opened in October, the centenarian said that he had worked as a farm laborer near Pasewalk in northeastern Germany during the period in question.

    -Germany's leading Jewish group welcomed the ruling.

    “Even if the defendant will probably not serve the full prison sentence due to his advanced age, the verdict is to be welcomed,” said Josef Schuster, the head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

And it might be that he's also said that it was broken too and that's why he was still trying to set it up or hadn't hat it on or set up at the moment he alleges she recanted, and you read this somewhere.

    Great photo. In olden days staterooms had portholes and gave directly onto the sea, or opened onto promenades such as here. Some staterooms had doors for direct access on the promenade.

    People would sit on these chairs and enjoy the sea air and sights, while others strolled the decks for a bit of see-and-be-seen. Great opportunities for socializing everywhere.

    Now, of course, every "suite" has its own balcony, and with good room service you can stay in your cabin the whole journey if you want to.

    Even in the upper echelon cruise lines there are deluxe restaurants on board, which require reservations and an extra charge--which can be substantial. They're often worth it.

    In the old days the Main Dining Room was often the only dining room. The point of all this is how much society has changed. Democracy is supposedly so important, but we've gotten less democratic at every turn. The most expensive and elaborate suites tend to sell out first.

    Sounds like the Marxists are really, really lazy about doing leg-work research. Till's case has been on their lips for 70 years, and they only now got someone to go through the courthouse documents and records? I mean, I know lots of reporting has devolved into Google search-email-phonecall-post story, but I thought shoe leather stuff would have been complete on this nonsense. Apparently not.

    Of course, we can use that against Marxists. Know they won't even do a modicum of research on a subject these days, and sue the bastards. E.g. Covington Kids, Kyle Rittenhouse, etc.

    Although, to be fair, this kind of laziness seems to be generational and endemic to a lot of people in the modern age. I knew a lawyer who would annoy the piss out of court house staff and police and prosecutors by dutifully demanding all records and all recordings of hearings for his client, and then having everything transcribed and copied into his files. And if there was nothing else, he would demand they send him a certified letter stating as such. And then he would review the record thoroughly. Apparently, most lawyers don't do that for their clients, even on big cases. The results were he got a lot more reversals and a lot better results over all because, you know, he actually had all the evidence and had looked at it, while the other lawyers just had a few documents they'd just barely glanced over.

That makes them a hell of a lot smarter than any of us, who have been conditioned to think that violence automatically equals evil. It doesn’t. Physical confrontation solves a great many problems.

    Of course minorities want us to believe violence is bad. That’s because they are outnumbered. As the minoritarians assume the majority all of a sudden violence is ok (antifa, blm) It’s the same inversion they use with the concept of free speech.

    Besides the Skunk Works thing, I think there is also an em-men/ex-men/x-men play on words. According to my brother's comic collection in 1980s, the Marvel X-Men had "customized" SR-71, the function of which was basically the same the as the transporter room in Star Trek: to get the characters to the next plot venue at minimum creative effort.

    Okay, granted, the "ex-men" reference was not this story in particular, but an iSteve theme in general. And em-men is, I take it, a contracted Emmett-men. So yeah, a bit esoteric.

I think it also, somehow, had really big side doors that could be opened while in flight (did they have to go subsonic first?) so particularly sturdy or flightworthy members could jump/fall/fly out.

    Some more breaking news from CBS News New York:

    A closer look at disparities in NYPD’s homicide clearance rates: “It made me feel like they didn’t care”

    NEW YORK — In a collaboration with CBS News, we examine a crime often going without punishment in our country.

    Barely half of murder cases in the United States get solved. The national homicide clearance rate is at an all-time low, according to FBI data.

    https://assets2.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/78bbfc07-5588-47e7-b7d4-0a46a7079f13/thumbnail/640x360/9c04aaab168bc549ceb2f8fab92b2c82/graph-1-1965-history-cbsnews1.png#

    In the mid-1960s, more than ninety percent of murders were solved, generally resulting in an arrest. By 1990, the percentage fell into the sixties. Then, by 2020—as the number of homicides surged—the national clearance rate dropped to about 50 percent for the first time ever.

    And our analysis with CBS News also discovered a difference by race. The national homicide clearance rate for White victims keeps improving. That’s the blue line at top. Meanwhile, the rate of solving murders for Black and Hispanic victims is much lower. Those are the two lines at the bottom.

    https://assets3.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2022/06/28/19064597-12cf-404f-91c8-767d2819987d/thumbnail/640x360/db911ff704b4fc0ba394fc34846b0d26/screengrab-00004.jpg#

The cops turn a blind eye because any other response may possibly destroy not only their careers but also their lives with no corresponding reward.
    It’s the same with the hysteria over the repeal of Roe versus Wade. With abortion readily available, the lower classes tend to keep their populations down by killing their young before they are born. The cost of an abortion is a lot less than the costs of later imprisonment. The democrats were not only slave owners, they were also slave breeders and knew a thing or two about genetics.

    It's a terrible compromise. So they give them a couple years for a Black on Black murder and call it manslaughter. Or they let them walk on a technicality. Or because there were no witnesses. This happens all the time if the victim was a thug.

    They basically slap them on the wrist because there are too many Blacks in prison. Well what is society telling them? Do whatever you want.

    Trying to tie current era Democrats to slavery is an pointless exercise. The story of the First Republic and its destruction is a story of 1) an devil’s bargain between North and South to rid themselves of future vulnerability to European powers and an expectation of mutual enhancing market power; 2) Southerner’s desire to avoid the implication of British case law taking an reverse position to the later American Dred Scott case regarding freedom and escaped slaves; 3) the elimination of the original motivation for the states to play nice by the removal of competing European states on the continent; and 4) little or no allegiance to the Republic by the waves of new immigrants.

    Now, of course, every “suite” has its own balcony, and with good room service you can stay in your cabin the whole journey if you want to.

    Even in the upper echelon cruise lines there are deluxe restaurants on board, which require reservations and an extra charge–which can be substantial. They’re often worth it.

    Those are the rules of ethnic civil war. Blue-on-blue murder is irrelevant. Blue-on-red murder is an understandable reaction to centuries of provocation. Red-on-blue murder is the work of the devil incarnate, and must be avenged to the maximum possible extent. This is the attitude of all sides in many ethnic conflicts, from Northern Ireland to Bosnia to Rwanda. The pretense of a quest for justice is part of the package.

  126. Jewish and Christian groups were active in Rwanda after the genocidal war there in 1994. The following was posted the site of the Jewish Federation in Atlanta.

    We feel echoes of the Holocaust in this place where hatred and racial supremacy drove a campaign of mass murder over the course of 100 days in 1994. The genocide was planned and executed by extremist elements of Rwanda’s majority Hutu population. They demonized the minority Tutsis as “cockroaches,” and brainwashed the Hutu to despise them. With nowhere to run, Tutsis were literally slaughtered in place. Every Rwandan family has been touched by the conflict and yet, reconciliation between the tribes has happened. Twenty-five years later, there is healing and prosperity in this land which now has the highest GDP in Africa. Rwanda teaches us transformation is possible through the redemptive power of forgiveness and good leadership.

    “Carnival Cruise Line! The Dollar Store of the High Seas”

     

    I rent properties, sometimes to black folks, courtesy of HUD. I chose to because HUD traditionally pays top-of-the-market rents without much fuss. I was somewhat surprised when these tenants shared that they occasionally enjoy going on Carnival cruises, since the premise of HUD was to help black people get back on their feet, while paying 2/3 of their rent, until the end of time.

    I would describe my tenants culture as low-key ghetto. Formerly drug dealers, now too old to function in that demographic, stuck in an orbit around social security/disability/HUD, and maybe occasional low-level drug dealing or whatever else they can come up with. Only real trouble comes when they invite younger relatives over. Those relatives bring their ghetto ways with them, and they’re young enough to get things crazy.

    If it’s a popular thing for blacks like these to go on Carnival cruises, rest assured this kind of thing is going to transpire more often, and normal people will become a captive audience.

    Just like in the rental market, it’s all fine and dandy to rent to blacks too old to be "players," but the trouble comes when they invite their younger relatives to join them. You can set your watch by what will happen next. Thankfully, cruise ships have more security cameras than ever before, or an egregious number black people falling overboard would be the latest puzzler for the NYT.

    It has to be that way per HIPAA. An employer should not ask nor learn about private medical information. So, unless the employee applies for maternity or paternity leave under FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act), they won't know. I don't think a pregnant person will apply for maternity leave to travel out for abortion, that would be an oxymoron. Most likely, they will use sick leave.

    As usual, you have to read to the 10th paragraph to get the REAL story:

    “Relying upon a 67-year-old warrant, while it’s an interesting academic exercise, I think would be unsound police work,” Ronald J. Rychlak, a law professor at the University of Mississippi and an expert in criminal procedure and Mississippi criminal trial practice, said in an interview. “Why would you rely on a 67-year-old warrant if you think you have the cause today to justify it?”

    Efforts to revive the case by the Justice Department foundered in 2007 and again last year, when federal officials said there was not enough evidence to pursue charges. The case had been reopened after a historian said in a 2017 book that Ms. Donham had recanted parts of her accusations against Emmett, including that he had grabbed her and made sexually suggestive remarks.
     

    In an unfortunate instance of bad luck, the historian's tape recorder was broken when Donham recanted. You know how that Chinese electronic stuff is - real hit or miss.

    In law, this is called "hearsay" like when a White House intern testifies that Trump tried to grab the steering wheel of his limo on Jan. 6, except that she didn't really see it happen, but a friend of a friend told her about it and then the Dems put her on national TV and CNN gets all excited for a day until the next horrible terrible no good thing that Trump did is revealed and they can move on to hyperventilating about that one instead. For some strange and obscure reason, courts do not allow hearsay evidence to be presented even though it's allowed at Congressional hearings and on CNN. Something something about it not being reliable.

    Mark Simone made an astute point: it’s a business decision. Paying for the airfare and maybe a couple of nights in a hotel is a LOT cheaper than having to pay an employee who’s taking maternity leave.

    Most of the flights will be for women that just want a vacation.

    Better to pay for an early abortion than having to pay to raise a future thug or entitled liberal.

    A lot of woke corporations are declaring that they'll pay the airfare for employees who have to fly to another state to get an abortion, and for this they are praised by progressives.

Paying for the airfare and maybe a couple of nights in a hotel is a LOT cheaper than having to pay an employee who's taking maternity leave. Years ago, a high executive in Bloomberg's organization said that when she told him she was pregnant, his response was, "Get an abortion!"

    Good point, especially since once the maternity leave is up, many women decide not to return at all. That’s typically a lot of investment—years of training—down the drain.

    Yet if all the murderers were caught and put in prison then the complaint would be too many blacks are in prison. The current situation is the only possible compromise. Blacks kill blacks who kill other blacks keeping the situation relatively under control. The cops turn a blind eye because any other response may possibly destroy not only their careers but also their lives with no corresponding reward.
    It's the same with the hysteria over the repeal of Roe versus Wade. With abortion readily available, the lower classes tend to keep their populations down by killing their young before they are born. The cost of an abortion is a lot less than the costs of later imprisonment. The democrats were not only slave owners, they were also slave breeders and knew a thing or two about genetics. They need a stable voting population, but not at the risk of their lives. Better to pay for an early abortion than having to pay to raise a future thug or entitled liberal.

    Trying to tie current era Democrats to slavery is an pointless exercise. The story of the First Republic and its destruction is a story of 1) an devil’s bargain between North and South to rid themselves of future vulnerability to European powers and an expectation of mutual enhancing market power; 2) Southerner’s desire to avoid the implication of British case law taking an reverse position to the later American Dred Scott case regarding freedom and escaped slaves; 3) the elimination of the original motivation for the states to play nice by the removal of competing European states on the continent; and 4) little or no allegiance to the Republic by the waves of new immigrants.

    The "we will fly you to get an abortion" thing is just virtue signaling. Very soon corporations will figure out that this will make them criminally liable under the state statues in anti-abortion states.

    What the policy needs to state is "if you need medical treatment out of state because that treatment is not available in our state, we will pay for you to travel out of state to receive that "medical treatment".

    And please don't tell us what that medical treatment is. It is none of our business. You just have to certify that this treatment is not available in our state.

    Replies: @epebble

    It has to be that way per HIPAA. An employer should not ask nor learn about private medical information. So, unless the employee applies for maternity or paternity leave under FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act), they won’t know. I don’t think a pregnant person will apply for maternity leave to travel out for abortion, that would be an oxymoron. Most likely, they will use sick leave.

    Somehow this reminds me about the movie In the Heat of the Night.

    I remind myself that ITHOTN is fiction, and it represents the world view of the 1960's era Proto Woke. But if a work of literary or cinematic fiction is well enough written, it can offer a deeper message than the propaganda surrounding it, which in this instance is "Southern whites are racist, Southern whites are racist, Southern whites are racist."

    Yeah, yeah and yeah, the whites are portrayed as racists, starting with the Rod Steiger character who chafes against the Sidney Poitier character assigned to the murder case, continuing with the rich guy who Smith-slaps Poitier for (erroneously) accusing him of the murder, and finally the posse of town vigilantes, who if not attempting to lynch Poitier, at the very least want to put the scare into him.

    The slap is one of those quaint Southern Honor Culture things that David Hackett Fischer writes about in Albion's Seed, but could we think it is not about the race of the Poitier character? OK, OK, it is because it was a triple disrespect of a wrongful accusation made by an African American and also a Yankee Outsider from a Big City. And that the town vigilantes are not simply hateful white racists but that Poitier slapping Rich Guy back seriously disrupted the social order?

    But nothing good ever comes of a police officer acting on their emotions instead of following protocol and police procedure, however righteous the emotion of Sidney Poitier standing up for his race and slapping back.

    For example, Poitier could have instead turned to Rod Steiger and calmly said, "Chief Gillespie? Did you just see that? That appears to me to be assaulting a police officer. Chief, I think we should arrest this suspect and bring him to the station house."

    And if Rod Stieger stayed true to how his character was written, he would have replied, "Yes, Officer Tibbs, I did see that. Rich Man, you are under arrest for assaulting a poh-leece officer" and put the cuffs on him.

    If the script was written that way, there wouldn't have been any drama and any more movie to film. So Poitier slaps back, he is chased by the Southern Boys who threaten him by bumping his car, and they threaten him with a brutal mob beat-down or worse with chains. Very, very racist in its historical context and symbolism.

    But guess what. Rod Steiger appears in the hay loft armed with a shot gun and tells the assembled mob to go home. Although the mob could have also dispatched Rod Steiger, maybe they were cowards as mobs always are in fictional depictions, maybe they respected the law and the authority the Rod Steiger character represented?

    You think that Steiger character of the "racist small-town Southern chief-of-police" knew that what was happening was the logical consequence of the slap back, besides it not being police protocol, that what the Poitier character was pretty darned reckless given the "time and the place", but that the Steiger character followed the Poitier character at a distance because if he insisted on staying with him as a body guard the Poitier character would get all huffy about that racists slight, that the Steiger character as a fellow law officer had his back?

    Then there is this scene where Steiger and Poitier, for whatever plot point, need to solve the case before daybreak and they try to get some sleep in hard, wooden chairs in the humid heat of the station house but instead, they have a "conversation about race." Yes, Steiger voices his resentments of Poitier getting involved in the case, but does this in any way changes Steiger's humanity for not only rescuing Poitier from the mob but also anticipating that a mob would from and taking active steps to protect a brother law officer? Or maybe the audience is being manipulated to the world view of the script writers, that racist though he was, the Steiger character is the rare "good white"?

    Nah!
