From Teen Vogue:

Black Lives Matter Uprisings Lead to Charges for Young Protesters

Black Canary is an op-ed column sounding the alarm against enduring injustice in America.

BY KANDIST MALLETT

AUGUST 6, 2020

… With distance and time, we often come to look at protesters like Williams as freedom fighters and understand that while their actions may seem drastic, they were prompted by something that was worse. While Angela Davis may be everyone’s favorite leftist now, she was on the FBI’s most wanted list and charged for aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder in connection to a shoot-out that took place in a San Rafael courthouse in California in 1970. Many people reviled her at the time. Davis was eventually acquitted and is now a celebrated professor, author, activist, and speaker.

From Wikipedia:

On August 7, 17-year-old Jonathan P. Jackson attempted to coerce the release of the Soledad Brothers (including his older brother George) by kidnapping Superior Court judge Harold Haley from the Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael, California. The resulting shootout left four men dead, including both Jackson and Judge Haley. Two others were wounded. The event received intense media coverage, as did the subsequent manhunt and trial of Angela Davis, an ousted professor from UCLA with connections to George and Jonathan Jackson, and the Black Panthers. Davis owned the weapons used in the incident. …

Two days before the kidnapping, former UCLA instructor Angela Davis had bought a shotgun from a pawn shop in San Francisco. After Davis paid for the shotgun, its barrel was sawed off so as to be concealable. …

On June 4, 1972, after 13 hours of deliberations,[31] the all-white jury returned a verdict of not guilty.[42] The fact that she owned the guns used in the crime was judged insufficient to establish her role in the plot. She was represented by Leo Branton Jr., who hired psychologists to help the defense determine who in the jury pool might favor their arguments, a technique that has since become more common. He hired experts to discredit the reliability of eyewitness accounts.[43]

From the New York Times in 1972:

A Shotgun That Miss Davis Purchased Is Linked to the Fatal Shooting of judge
By Earl Caldwell Special to The New York Times
April 18, 1972

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 17— A shotgun purchased by Angela Davis just two days before an escape attempt at the Marin County Civic Center in August, 1970, was identified today as the weapon used to shoot a judge who was taken hostage by the convicts involved.

The testimony that linked the gun purchased by Miss Davis to the shooting of Superior. Court Judge Harold Haley came from Fred H. Wynbrandt, a ballistics expert.

The shotgun had a sawed‐off barrel and had been smuggled into the courtroom by 17‐year‐ old Jonathan Jackson. It was then taped to Judge Haley’s neck and used to take the judge hostage as Jackson attempted to free three San Quentin convicts who were involved in a criminal proceeding in the judge’s courtroom.

Inside a rented van outside the courthouse, as the group was attempting to get away, Judge Haley was shot twice, once with a shotgun in the head and again in the chest with another weapon.

Mr. Wynbrandt said that marking on plastic wadding found in the judge’s head wound identified it as having come from the sawed‐off shotgun.

Miss Davis, who is on trial on murder, kidnapping and conspiracy charges, is accused of helping plan the seizure of hostages and of purchasing guns for it.

When she delivered the opening statement for the defense several weeks ago, she admitted that she had purchased a number of weapons, but she said then that the weapons she had bought were “totally unrelated to any illegal activities.”

It had been known that Miss Davis had purchased the shotgun.

The significance of the testimony from Mr. Wynbrandt was that it pinpointed the Davis shotgun is the one that Wag used to fire a blast into Judge Haley’s head. There were two other shotguns in the van at the time the judge was killed.

As far as I can tell from reading about her trial, where Dr. Davis offered the opening statement for her defense team, she never offered an alternative theory for how the shotgun she bought on August 5, 1970 that blew the judge’s head off on August 7, 1970 wound up in the hands of 17-year-old Jonathan Jackson two days later. She just asserted that the prosecution hadn’t proved that she, a prize student of Marxist philosopher Herbert Marcuse, was the mastermind of the conspiracy that led to the judge’s death.

Who knows? Maybe Davis was a totally ignorant, obtuse, low IQ person whom nobody would look to for leadership, but instead would follow the lead of her her 17-year-old bodyguard Jonathan Jackson instead of Angela Davis, Ph.D. I suppose that could be true. There’s almost as much chance of Dr. Davis not having been involved as that O.J. Simpson will find the Real Killers on the back nine.

Dr. Davis is currently available for public speaking engagements through the APB agency. She also is employed as a Visiting Distinguished Professor:

In 2020 it was announced that Davis would be the Ena H. Thompson Distinguished Lecturer for Pomona College’s History Department, welcoming her back after 45 years.[65]

Davis was a Professor of Ethnic Studies at the San Francisco State University from at least 1980 to 1984.[66] She was a professor in the History of Consciousness and the Feminist Studies Departments at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Rutgers University from 1991 to 2008.[67] Since then, she has been Distinguished Professor Emerita.[68]

Davis was a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Syracuse University in Spring 1992 and October 2010, and was the Randolph Visiting Distinguished Professor of philosophy at Vassar College in 1995.[69][70]

In 2014, Davis returned to UCLA as a Regents’ Lecturer. She delivered a public lecture on May 8 in Royce Hall, where she had given her first lecture 45 years earlier.[71]

On May 22, 2016, Davis was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters in Healing and Social Justice from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco during its 48th annual commencement ceremony.[72]

Microsoft (market capitalization $1.6 trillion) celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Angela Davis getting away with Felony Murder on its Typescript website:

Sure, Angela Davis is a Communist and Microsoft is very Capitalist, but that’s not the point. The point is that Angela Davis is a Black woman and Judge Haley was a white man.

By the way, how come we aren’t being ordered to capitalize Woman and not capitalize man? Is it just that nobody has thought of that yet?

Or maybe Black Woman will both be capitalized while white woman must remain lower case …

    Does she actually know anything? Here's a clue from Outlines of Hegel's Phenomenology at Marxists.org -
    https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/hegel/works/ol/ol_phen.htm.


    4. The subject ... is Spirit (the Mind). It is Phenomenal when essentially relating to an existent object; in so far is it Consciousness. The Science of Consciousness is, therefore, called The Phenomenology of Spirit (or Mind).
     
    Hegel is Herr History of Consciousness. Davis' mentor Marcuse interprets Hegel thus, in this qiki from Wiki:

    [In his Reason and Revolution] Marcuse reinterprets Hegel, with the aim of demonstrating that Hegel's basic concepts are hostile to the tendencies that led to fascism.
     
    Sometime in 1970 Davis re-visited UCSD, and Marcuse introduced her for a chat on the plaza, with a gallant and ceremonious buss on both cheeks. It was later, on August 7, that Judge Haley was killed.
  2. I never gave another dime to my Ivy after they had her as a visiting professor, and I never will.

    Angela Davis bought the shotgun you see taped to the judge's neck 2 or 3 days before the murder. It's not like there is much ambiguity over how the killer got his hands on her guns to use in the kidnapping: she gave them to him.

  18. She got away with murder, OJ got away with Murder, T. Cullen Davis got away with murder……Except they didn’t really since we know they did it. In a perfect just world, every murderer would hang. In a perfectly merciful world, every murderer would be forgiven.

    In America, every murderer that gets way with it does seem to profit mightily. That is not their fault, that is the fault of the American People.

  19. Davis was a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Syracuse University in Spring 1992 and October 2010, and was the Randolph Visiting Distinguished Professor of philosophy at Vassar College in 1995.

    After his acquittal, Dr. Jeffrey Dahmer was Distinguished Visiting Professor of Anatomy and Vivisection at John Hopkins University.

    The problem with calling the Black Panthers freedom fighters is, they didn’t achieve anything nor did they have functional demands. In essence they were imitating similar groups, but those groups had objectives and functional demands, often for political autonomy or self-determination in their ethnic homeland. Black America doesn’t have a definable homeland they can claim in self-determination, nor is there is any real appetite for it among African-Americans, though perhaps they might be if they did have a definable homeland.

    I am at a real loss as to conclude what the point of the Black Panthers was. Seriously. Even the judge kidnapping was just to get some of their guys out of jail. The Catholic church used to have many rules on war. One of them was that while violence to oppose oppression was justified, violence with no hope of ever being effective could only be seen as a sin. The Black Panthers could never ‘win’ but even that was because they didn’t really have any demands or purpose to begin with.

    Didn’t get around to it on the Robin DiAngelo thread, but i’ll say it here:

    There’s a word for both these women: “Parasite”

    There are useless eaters, who’ve spent a lifetime eating food grown by white guys, living in homes built by white guys, using electricity generated by white guys, driving cars engineered and built by white (or Asian) guys, burning gasoline drilled and refined by white guys. They live off the labor of actual working people–mostly white guys–but produce … *nothing* in exchange. Actually worse than nothing, they do negative work, spreading hatred and lies.

    How does this happen?

    It happens because the state extracts labor–at the point of a gun–from productive people (mostly white guys) and gives it to these parasites.

    The Democrat party project is to create more and more and more parasite sinecures. They work at it every day. The whole “defund the police” isn’t to “defund the police” but to create more “social worker” parasite sinecures for their base of “women with BAs”.

    Conservatives has talked–talked–about “defunding the left” … but they never do. This is a war. To have any chance of winning you have to destroy the enemy’s base of support. That base is parasitism … fed by taxes and subsidies and regulations and rules imposed upon the productive economy. Conservatives must fight continually to destroy it.

    At one time the picture of Jane Fonda sitting upon a North Vietnamese A-A gun emplacement, one used to shoot at, and , or, shoot down US aircraft, with no penalty or even official censure for having done so, would have disturbed me a great deal

    Not now, as thank God I no longer take the two hundred plus year old manufactured and broadly controlled (crimethink, I know) Hegelian Dalectic of Capitalism/Communism, Right/Left, and Conservatieve/Liberal, seriously, as I presume more and more others don’t either.

    Can you imagine if it had been ‘white supremacists’ (i.e. white guys) killing a black woman judge? Why, the Hollywood movies alone would have brought in billions.

    In fact, considering the flip job they did on “A Time to Kill” I’m surprised Hollywood hasn’t latched on to this fictiony story yet.

    Just like dozens of cases here in the USA. Cops are no longer permitted to arrest black people. And if they try, they get what’s coming to them. The violent criminals become media heroes.

    God help me, but the hair bill is a good idea. Even on a purely racial level, having to put industrial chemicals into or sew someone else's hair into your head should *not* be a prerequisite for getting a job.

    With varying degrees of goodwill, everyone here likes to talk about Black women's obsession with having Good Hair in terms of evolution, or intrasexual competition. But this bill suggests that their concerns are more practical. Logical, almost.

    The Black crime rate is an abomination, and the current round of riots vomit on several lines, but not every complaint they have is baseless.

    Davis was a Professor of Ethnic Studies at the San Francisco State University from at least 1980 to 1984.[66] She was a professor in the History of Consciousness and the Feminist Studies Departments at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Rutgers University from 1991 to 2008.[67] Since then, she has been Distinguished Professor Emerita.[68]
     
    Didn't get around to it on the Robin DiAngelo thread, but i'll say it here:

    There's a word for both these women: "Parasite"

    There are useless eaters, who've spent a lifetime eating food grown by white guys, living in homes built by white guys, using electricity generated by white guys, driving cars engineered and built by white (or Asian) guys, burning gasoline drilled and refined by white guys. They live off the labor of actual working people--mostly white guys--but produce ... *nothing* in exchange. Actually worse than nothing, they do negative work, spreading hatred and lies.

    How does this happen?

    It happens because the state extracts labor--at the point of a gun--from productive people (mostly white guys) and gives it to these parasites.

    The Democrat party project is to create more and more and more parasite sinecures. They work at it every day. The whole "defund the police" isn't to "defund the police" but to create more "social worker" parasite sinecures for their base of "women with BAs".

    Conservatives has talked--talked--about "defunding the left" ... but they never do. This is a war. To have any chance of winning you have to destroy the enemy's base of support. That base is parasitism ... fed by taxes and subsidies and regulations and rules imposed upon the productive economy. Conservatives must fight continually to destroy it.

    Does she actually know anything? Here’s a clue from Outlines of Hegel’s Phenomenology at Marxists.org –
    https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/hegel/works/ol/ol_phen.htm.

    4. The subject … is Spirit (the Mind). It is Phenomenal when essentially relating to an existent object; in so far is it Consciousness. The Science of Consciousness is, therefore, called The Phenomenology of Spirit (or Mind).

    Hegel is Herr History of Consciousness. Davis’ mentor Marcuse interprets Hegel thus, in this qiki from Wiki:

    [In his Reason and Revolution] Marcuse reinterprets Hegel, with the aim of demonstrating that Hegel’s basic concepts are hostile to the tendencies that led to fascism.

    Sometime in 1970 Davis re-visited UCSD, and Marcuse introduced her for a chat on the plaza, with a gallant and ceremonious buss on both cheeks. It was later, on August 7, that Judge Haley was killed.

    Attack? Maybe it was just a “mostly peaceful” encounter that merely intensified toward the end, resulting in an unfortunate outcome. Let’s not make racist assumptions now.
