From the Daily Mail news section:

Black man who was told he’d ‘come to the wrong neighborhood’ by aggressive Army Drill Sergeant, 42, ‘is mentally ill and has been committed to a facility’

Presumably, Deandre has been packed away to a psychiatric hospital by his parents to help avoid prison for his various crimes that provoked St. Pentland’s defensive actions.

Jonathan Pentland, 42, on Monday aggressively confronted a young black man named only as Deandre
Deandre is mentally ill and has been committed to a facility following the incident in a quiet gated community, DailyMail.com can reveal
Pentland has been charged with third degree assault and battery
Deandre had been facing charges of trespass and animal cruelty from different incidents, but he has now been determined mentally incapable of standing trial
Pentland has been suspended from drill sergeant instructor role pending investigation after footage of the incident in South Carolina went viral
The three-minute clip shows Pentland repeatedly scream at the victim, telling him to ‘go away now’ and pushing him
Dozens of BLM protesters rallied outside Pentland’s home on Wednesday
In the early hours of Thursday Pentland was spotted fleeing his house

So, Sgt. Pentland is a figure of hate for tens of millions because he said Deandre didn’t belong in this neighborhood and now Deandre’s parents say he doesn’t belong in any neighborhood but needs to be locked up for psychiatric care.

Update: From the local CBS news station in Columbia, SC in 2020:

Vulnerable Columbia man found safely
Deandre Williams, 21, was found Friday morning

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A 21-year-old vulnerable adult was found safely on January 31 after he was last seen on January 15.

On Friday, RCSD learned where Williams was and he was found safely.

Deandre Williams, 21, was seen at his home in Northeast Columbia on Jan. 15 before he left in an unknown vehicle. According to law enforcement, Williams has a medical condition for which he needs treatment.

My vague impression is that young black men are somewhat more likely than young white men to be insane, although I don’t know why. iSteve commenter Gordo points to this 2008 paper:

Br J Gen Pract. 2008 Jun 1; 58(551): 429–434.

Schizophrenia in black Caribbeans living in the UK: an exploration of underlying causes of the high incidence rate

Rebecca Pinto, BA (Hons), MSc, Research Associate, Mark Ashworth, DM, MRCP, MRCGP, Clinical Senior Lecturer, and Roger Jones, DM, MA, FRCP, FRCGP, FMedSci, FFPHM, Wolfson Professor of General Practice

Abstract
The incidence of schizophrenia in black Caribbeans living in the UK is substantially higher than in the white British population. When first reported, these findings were assumed to be a first-generation migrant effect or merely the result of methodological artefacts associated with inconsistencies in the diagnosis of schizophrenia in black Caribbeans and doubts about population denominators. More recently, it has become clear that the incidence of schizophrenia, based on standardised diagnosis and sophisticated census methods, is higher still in second-generation black Caribbeans. The largest study to date has demonstrated a ninefold higher risk of schizophrenia in UK-resident black Caribbeans: findings that are of concern to black Caribbean communities, to their GPs, and to health service managers responsible for resource allocation. …

A “ninefold” higher rate of schizophrenia is a lot.

In other news, Drill Sergeant Jonathan Pentland has been suspended for not living up to his profession’s high standards of compassion and sensitivity:

  1. My vague impression is that young black men are somewhat more likely than young white men to be insane, although I don’t know why.

    I believe you’re right. I remember a study out of the U.K. from the last 10 years that lamented the high percentage of blacks in mental health facilities v. whites and how the article urged that such “racist unbalancing” be eliminated—presumably by letting the crazy blacks out or putting more sane whites in.

    Anyway, I think this is nurture. Lack of fathers in homes causes all sorts of mental health issues in girls, and I think boys are the same, but different flavors.

    I doubt very much that this will save Sgt. Pentland from being purged from SECDEF Austin’s “woke” Army, though.

    Even a mentally-ill and possibly criminal Negro must not be reproached by a white man today.

    A century ago, it would have been the opposite — no matter how wrong a white was, a black would have to submit to his authority. Today, a professional white man defending his neighborhood and family will lose his career and has been driven from his home by a mob for standing up to an adolescent Negro.

    We’ve effectively inverted Jim Crow.

    How is “insane” defined? Is it a legitimate construct?

  9. Mental illness occurs in all races and cultures, but it is strongly suspected that heavy marijuana use can precipitate psychosis in people who have that tendency anyway, so it is possible that people who are members of marijuana smoking cultures may be more vulnerable to mental illness.

    However the actual format of mental illness and delusions, hallucinations and other symptoms can vary quite a bit depending on culture.

    For example it has been my personal observation that black people often form religious delusions, for example they claim to be the Lamb of God, whereas people from the Indian subcontinent tend to be much more somatic in their inclined, and will believe that they have a radio implanted in their tooth or something like that.

    White people who go insane often adopt a kind of absent-minded professor persona, and appear to be very intellectual to people who do not realize that they are talking absolute nonsense.

    There is also a possibility that mentally ill black people, usually coming from less affluent families, are more visible on the streets of America whereas middle class white mentally ill people are much more likely to be kept at home by their families or living in supervised group homes, or in rural areas where they are less noticeable.

    At least that’s the way it used to be.

    But there is plenty of research and information available on the incidence of mental illness in various populations, that goes way beyond Noticing.

    After police and FBI investigation, officials said the messages were a hoax

    Student behind the slurs wanted to ‘raise awareness of social and racial injustice’

    Dysfunctional mating practices. Anti-social mentally borderline people like dmx have lots of children by many different women. In the large education systems blacks dominate Special Ed; they all go on to have multiple children. Criminals, drug addicts, prostitutes, mentally ill (categories are not exclusive) and so forth in the black community have plenty of children whereas in other groups those conditions usually act as a barrier to reproduction. Not something most people want to hear or think about.

    There are some not-nice people out there who are well-versed in persuasion and other techniques. They are actively recruiting, through movies, through TV, music, and the web. Maybe someone will interview the young man to learn a bit about him. And maybe that learning can serve to help others…

    I recently heard about a young (white) child in SPED with lots of sensory issues and PTSD, amongst other problems. The PTSD came from an abusive dad who, apparently, often pointed a gun at him. So this kid got the short emd of the nature AND nurture sticks. I think this may often be the case, where the kids not only get their parents’ not so great dna, but also have to survive their parents’ not so great upbringing as a result of nature.

    “Insanity” is strictly a legal term, with a legal test, not a psychiatric term, with a medical test. The vast majority of mentally ill people are not psychotic– which is the clinical term for someone who is delusional and “out of touch with reality.” Whether someone is legally insane, in the United States, depends upon the operative legal rule, in whichever jurisdiction he has been criminally accused:

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/Insanity_defense#:~:text=Traditionally%2C%20the%20M%27Naghten%C2%A0test%20has%20been%20associated%20with%20schizophrenia,half%20of%20the%20states.%20The%20%22Irresistible%20Impulse%22%20Test

    In his Teaching Company course Daniel Robinson said the only safe way to use insane was in a legal context. It is legal mumbo jumbo for such uses as innocent by reason of insanity which is extremely rare. Also he said there has been an insanity defense as long as there have been criminal courts and even before. In the Illiad they had characters consumed by wolf’s rage.

    Mentally ill is the catch all jargon. If you go by psychiatric medicine prescriptions over a quarter of the nation is mentally ill.

    Has anybody ever done a survey on psychiatric medicine prescriptions and patient’s political preferences? Wouldn’t that be something if half the Biden voters were on psych meds and only one tenth the Trump voters? Or vice versa?

    I attended a series of evening presentations on Psychiatry and Law, at the University of Washington, many years ago, for Continuing Legal Education credits. One week, Dr. Szasz, the anti-psychiatrist, whose books I already had read, was the featured speaker. I asked him a direct question, after his presentation, about whether he had any formal evidence to back up his claims, that night, beyond his own intuitions, and he answered, rather simply: “Um . . . no.” I was decidedly unimpressed.

Most forms of mental illness are inversely correlated with intelligence as measured by iq tests (I think bipolar disorder is an exception), so if a group of people scored lower on iq tests than others, it would be expected that the lower scoring group would have higher rates of mental illness.

  43. I’m probably getting this reversed, but when you lay your hands on a person that’s battery automatically and when you get all up in someone’s face that’s assault automatically.

    The Sgt. did spot the guy that should not have been there, and the guy was mentally ill and had committed crimes, but there was a different way to handle it than he chose.

    He let his emotions run away with him, and it blew up in his face. It’s too bad, but it’s not surprising that the vid went viral and a mob showed up, and he also get charged. It also won’t be that surprising if his military career is ended.

    He was emotional and not in control of himself and that is a liability in a military man. Hope he learns from this. Anger, yelling and pushing? Nope. That’s weak. And you set yourself up for this kind of aftermath.

  44. My father is quite crazy, having lived on and off the streets for many years.

    [MORE]

    My earliest memory of him is the time when my mother dragged me out of bed in the middle of the night and told me that we had to go downtown right away because my father was in jail. (I was around six at the time.) She took the wrong exit getting off the expressway and we ended up in a very bad area of Miami, with menacing-looking blacks on every corner. At one point my mother even ran a red light when she saw a guy walking over to our car. When we finally got to the jail, we had to wait for what seemed like an eternity before they allowed us to see him. The details of the actual meeting are somewhat fuzzy, but I remember quite clearly that his eyes were totally glazed over and that he showed absolutely no interest in me. My memories indicate that he asked my mother to do something (bail him out?) and was not pleased when she refused. At any rate, we left and drove back home, and I didn’t see him again for a long time.

    Another early memory is the time my mother took me to see him at some kind of hospital outside of Gainesville (a town we visited frequently when I was growing up). It seemed like a prison, but evidently it was some kind of mental-health facility. On the way there, my mother stopped at a BBQ place and picked up some chicken. The guards confiscated the cutlery because the patients weren’t allowed access to sharp objects. We were taken to some kind of waiting room with chairs and tables and magazines and a kids’ play area. When he came out, I yelled “Daddy!” and ran over to him and gave him a big hug. He smiled awkwardly, but it was obvious that he was not comfortable with the physical contact. I remember thinking that this was odd. (My grandfather – the only true father figure I’ve ever known – demanded a big hug every time I saw him. I would run from the front door into the living room and jump on top of him as he was sitting in his favorite chair and he would clench me with all his might.) I have photos of this meeting. My smile has a prominent gap in the middle.

    Another time he was staying somewhere in the Miami area and we were allowed to take him to the Youth Fair (or was it Santa’s Enchanted Forest?). He threw up on one of the rides.

    Another time we were allowed to take him to a movie – Dumb and Dumber. He didn’t laugh very much, if at all. He looked particularly uncomfortable during the scene when Jim Carrey encountered the bully in the bathroom. I was just young and innocent enough not to grasp the sexual context. (I assumed that Jim Carrey was upset because the bully was going to beat him up, or something.)

    The most current information I have about him is courtesy of the “sunshine laws” of the state of Florida. (In this state, voter-registration cards are considered public records. Supporters of democracy will be pleased to learn that he is a registered Democrat. No doubt he voted for Biden, whether he was aware of it or not.) As of several years ago, his residential address was a rehab facility. He is no longer there.

    The other day I did one of my periodic Google searches and discovered that his older brother – my uncle, I guess – died last year. Someone posted a few family photos on the tribute page, giving me my first glimpses of relatives who heretofore I had known only as names and dates. They also gave me some rare snapshots of my father as a kid.

    It’s weird to think that these strangers, most of whom are now dead – longevity does not run on my father’s side of the family, nor on my mother’s father’s side – are as closely related to me as the people I grew up with. In my mind, I had two uncles and two aunts, but in biological terms I had quite a few more than that. My father had one full brother and several half-siblings, all but one of whom he has now outlived.

    One photograph in particular, dated 1972, is quite striking. My father is not quite 16 years old, but he’s already taller and broader-shouldered than his now-deceased 18-year-old brother. (Like me, he always had excellent posture in pictures, stretching his frame to the fullest. Friends have always mocked me for “standing at attention” in photographs. My maternal grandfather stood the same way.) He was much leaner than I was at that age, but he was wearing the exact same sullen, morose expression that I recognize from my own adolescent photographs. (Hell, I still see that same expression today. People always ask me why I look so depressed in all my pictures. Now I can tell them it’s a family trait.) He’s even wearing the same hairstyle that I had in high school.

    The irony is that his bespectacled brother looked like a total nerd, and yet he never had much use for books and ended up working as a mechanic. My father was the jock – not the swaggering jock, but the sensitive jock – but he was a voracious reader and an excellent student and he advanced to a postgraduate level of education before his life crashed and burned. Appearances can be deceiving, can’t they?

    The only other noteworthy aspect of the picture is that my father is standing in front of some weird wall decoration that makes it look like he has metal spikes growing out of his head.

    The video is pretty clear. I’m not surprised to see everyone here be like “Pentland is a good boy, he dindu nuffin” but what he did was inexcusable and he should be harshly punished. He brought great dishonor on the army and on his base in particular. The only thing is there is no real evidence of racism, and allegations of racism are the only reason that this went viral and that a mob went to his house.

    The biggest takeaway here needs to be that white people shouldn’t join the military, and if they’re in the military then they should get out ASAP. The last year has been full of examples of anti-white bias but it’s just gonna keep on getting worse. Sadly, America is so pathetic that I don’t foresee a huge drop in enlistment by whites.

    I’m not terribly surprised to see so many people on here defend what he did, but it’s still dismaying. The only thing he doesn’t deserve is to be accused of racism, because there’s no evidence of that. But this has been and will be used by the powers-that-be to push an anti-white narrative.

    General Droopydog is most culpable here. He’s black, so if he had any balls, or any regard for the welfare of his troops, he could shut down the whole thing by saying ‘This soldier exemplifies the best in us: Defending the his community and family from harm”. But no.

    Like the black superindent of West Point, he cares more about his career, (built on affirmative action) than doing what is right. He can see the blacks underperform academically, cheat more often and have more disciplinary problems, but he a lacks the will or interest to do anything about it , or say anything.

    One can understand the white generals pussing-out for fear of the mob, but these black generals are bullet-proof. Why don’t they stand up for their soldiers? Perhaps they really enjoy sticking it to whitey, more than exercising command. Reverse fragging.

    Good point, for example I’ve seen (white) family members of obviously “slow” people describe them as “autistic, even though they are Funny Looking People.

    As this blog frequently discusses, low intelligence is a taboo thing.

    Depression and body dysmorphia (anorexia in women, excessive body building in men ) seem to be most common in white people. Blacks have more natural self esteem. But the most spectactular delusional forms of mental illness seem more common in blacks (and they really need to get more vitamin D if they live above the 35th latitude parallel).

  59. The incidence of schizophrenia in black Caribbeans living in the UK is substantially higher than in the white British population.

    I heard once that there’s one demographic group sectioned more in the UK – and that’s Irishmen. But I assume that’s more to do with their belligerent behavior in the presence of alcohol, and that they’re typically released from care when sober.

    Recent research shows that whites born after 1950 are suffering from dementia at an earlier age than older generations did. Its probable that high rates of substance abuse, esp. when young, account for this. Abuse of alcohol, hallucinogens, and narcotics are not good for your brain.

    BTW, the “soft” and “hard” drug thing is dumb. There’s a reason people high on pot are considered illegal and impaired drivers.

    Also WRT pot, I heard a Steven Crowder interview about pot being totally decriminalized in Ann Arbor (or at least somewhere else in MI). Evidently rates of crime and mental health crises shot up big time among vulnerable demographics (e.g. young males). I don’t think older people smoking is that big a deal, but we really don’t want teenagers on the stuff.

    I agree with you, but I think what folks here are complaining about is the asymmetrical nature of the enforcement of the laws. “Getting all up in someone’s face” is pretty much what Antifa has been doing for a year with no consequences.

    There’s a false narrative of black oppression being created by the media; stories that fit that narrative are amplified; stories that don’t are buried. And social media has created a mob justice system that will crucify you if you’re the wrong race, and glorify you if you are one of the “oppressed.”

    It’s good to see that Deandre’s parents care enough about him to get him committed, where he can safely be treated for his condition. It’s a terrible shame that there are so many people in society, both black and white who don’t have anyone who cares about their mental health problems enough to help them to seek medical treatment. In reality the white soldier was fortunate that the young guy never had a knife, which is a common thing with a lot of these mentally ill people. So it could easily have ended far worse than it did. As for making out that the soldier is a criminal, well there seems to be quite a number of mentally ill professionals passing themselves off as normal in the US legal system, that’s for certain.

    “You scumbags are just pro-white SJWs. The facts don’t matter at all. Only the narrative matters to you.”

    I won’t disagree that there’s a narrative here among the iSteve faithful, however I would describe it as a counter-narrative to the false narrative of minority oppression that is being shoved down our throats daily.

    A recent survey had people estimate the number of blacks killed by police in 2019. Among liberals, their estimate was over 1000. The actual number was 27. And if you normalize by number of police encounters, you are more likely to be shot by police if you are white–which leads to the exact opposite conclusion from the dominant narrative.

    I dare say 95% of readers here just want a color blind society–you know, the one Martin Luther King fought for. The punishment for shoving someone should not depend on the race of the perpetrator or of the victim.

    Yeah, I saw the video. I saw Deandre turn to engage Pentland’s wife in conversation. He took three full steps toward her while she was standing in her own yard just out of frame. One more step and he would have been off the sidewalk and in her yard. At this point Pentland gave Deandre a shove that only knocked him briefly off balance. He was trying to protect his wife. This constitutes one piece of his assault and battery charge. The other piece came later off camera when he knocked Deandre’s camera phone out of his hand while he had it trained on the Pentland house. He was likely taking footage for doxing purposes. That was a futile gesture as we have all seen.

    No, it’s the current culture that’s weak and sick. Men need to be able to display anger and physical aggression. Pentland was righteously angry and did Deandre no harm.

    Not very long ago law enforcement refrained from involving itself in minor fistfights, no less a little shoving.

    The modern urge to feminize men and bar them from any displays of physical aggression goes against men’s nature, and against healthy social outlets for male aggression.

    Every time one man lays hands on another is not a case for the police.

    Here’s a charming story of a small town Texas negro, a “teen” named Henry Smith.

    Smith was drunk and disorderly one day, and resisted arrest. The cop had to club him to subdue him.

    A couple weeks later and out of jail, the negro went to the cop’s house when the cop was out on duty. When his wife went into the house, leaving their three year old daughter along in the yard briefly.

    Smith snatched her up and carried her through town, where they were seen by several people including the mayor. Telling those who asked that he was taking her to the doctor, he instead disappeared until the next morning.

    The girl’s body was found later that day. Doctors examined her and said she had been raped and strangled.

    ….”Found complete laceration of perineum, extending an inch and a half up the rectum. The posterior part of the vagina ruptured, connecting abdominal cavity with vagina, parts terribly bruised and mutilated, unmistakable evidence of rape, hair from the mons-veneris of the negro being found on the pudendum of the baby, held by the clotted blood.”

    J. B. CHAPMAN, M. D., City Health Officer. wo S. BALDWIN, M. D.

    The negro had fled town, but was caught and confessed.


    ….”Initially denying any involvement in the murder, Smith finally confessed on the train ….He said he was drunk and was motivated by revenge against the child’s father. Smith said he spent the night sleeping in the pasture next to the dying child, killing her by suffocation when he awoke the next morning.”

    He was tortured and burned alive while tied to a scaffold, in front of a cheering crowd.

    This was in 1893.

    A century ago, it would have been the opposite — no matter how wrong a white was, a black would have to submit to his authority.

    Not so. Recall that in the century-ago South, the assembled white might of various personal fortunes, the Hearst and most other newspapers, and the supposed local “prejudice” could not persuade a local prosecutor to indict nor a local jury to convict simple-minded black guy Jim Conley for the rape and murder of a white girl, despite a certain amount of superficially plausible evidence implicating him.

    We’ve effectively inverted Jim Crow.

    Jim Crow was “separate but equal”. It applied equally to white as well as black, e.g., whites as well as blacks were prohibited to intermarry. The inversion of “separate but equal” is still “separate but equal”.

    What we have now is not inverted Jim Crow. What we have now is black supremacy. Or blacks “above criticism and beneath agency” in Steve’s elegant epigram. Or “Black Run America” in Paul Kersey’s words. Or “Negrolotry” as the new secular religion in the increasingly hard to deny formulation of other writers here.

    This may seem like semantic nitpicking, but this insouciant assumption of a mythical white supremacy in the past is the foundation upon which the current false dogma of Eternal White Atonement is built. Don’t build the enemy’s foundations for them. On the contrary, when you find such foundations of evil being built, root them out and extirpate them.

  86. I think we have to be careful explaining the unacceptable behaviors of large numbers of blacks as “mental illness”. Many blacks are not – and never will be – cognitively and temperamentally equipped to live in in a civilized, trust-based society. Our focus should be on protecting Whites, not on diagnosing and “curing” black stupidity, irresponsibility, and violence.

    Identifying the large number of violent blacks as “mentally ill” implies that blacks and Whites are, on average, the same, in terms of cognition, impulse control and accountability, and a host of other characteristics and that, for some strange reason, a large number of blacks fall far below our civilizational standard, so they must be “ill” – sick – right? Not that blacks are simply, on average, dumber and more violent that whites, but that a great bunch of them are just “ill” – how could you blame a person for that? Then we start going down the rabbit hole of what “causes” so many blacks to be “ill”, and what can be done to “cure”, “treat”, and “prevent” their sickness. Now, all over again, we’re putting all our focus on them, expending “resources” on them – even though that has never worked in the past, and we lose focus on what matters – our children, our wives, our families, our homes, our neighborhoods, our towns and cities, our country, our culture – our people.

    This Deandre animal is now protected under by the label “illness” and will not be held accountable. He’s not bad, he’s just sick, you see – with the right treatment and love and resources he can probably even be cured, and can take his rightful place in a civilized culture.

    Bull$#*t.

    Any man – of any color – who molests children, assaults women, trespasses in a community where he doesn’t belong and lacks the capacity to accept that he is responsible (“I didn’t do anything”) and accountable should be hung. There is no longer any place to expel such people from the civilized community, and why should we ask normal law-abiding people to pay to warehouse and feed these violent animals in prison for a lifetime? We’re never going to have the guts to just separate out a geographic portion of the US and force blacks to live there, and soon, just by the numbers, we will lack the political power to do anything at all (democracy is great, if you are the majority, right?).

    Blacks aren’t “ill” – they are just wrong for civilized White society, and should be separated from it. I don’t see that happening.

    The state opened up the mental facilities and let everyone out but the state did not provide funds for local jurisdictions to provide mental health treatment. The same goes for other states which is why so many homeless people with problems are wandering the streets. Many of them “self medicate” which is to say that they do drugs to stop their mental symptoms such as hallucinations.

    Here’s another blinding effect of HBD — a good share of its fans believe that East Asia, unencumbered by politically correct dogma, will prove to be the way forward for the science of genetic influences on human outcomes.

    Did any of them ever hear the phrase “Tiger Mother”? Or read The Geography of Thought? (For Asians, environmental forces trump inner-nature forces.)

    Or notice all of this blank slate psychosis about how to optimally engineer your kid’s upbringing to get them into a Good School? Or reflect on how Communist-friendly that whole area tends to be, and how averse to genetics they are?

    But, don’t bother noticing patterns like that. East Asians have higher IQs and lower crime rates, the opposite of higher-crime and lower-IQ blacks. And we all know Rushton’s Rule — Europeans are between blacks and Asians. Ergo, Asians are the way forward.

    Why bother noticing patterns when you can spin baseless cobwebs of reasoning?

    I’m sure that a lot of smokers think that grass is no worst than tobacco. My friends only son couldn’t stop using it and his condition progressed to a point where he ended up in a care-house, with his own locked room. When his mum visited one day, the commotion surprised her, but she went on her way to see the son. Arriving at his room to find people trying to open the door, with him hanging there, but they managed to cut him done and eventually revive him.
    The mum is happy because she’s still got her son around, but he’s cactus. Can’t walk straight, can’t talk properly and he wobbles his head all the time like an Indian. But other than that, he’s pretty good. On the plus side- no more dope and he’s two inches taller.

    So American psychiatrists either do not believe in evolution at all, or believe in it … strictly from the neck down? Got it!

    I’m sure they all f’cking LUV science, too!

    A hard blow to the head and you may hear voices. Take LSD and you may have interesting visual hallucinations. Stay awake too long and you’ll become even more confused.

    I’ve never been able to understand why some people take their hallucinations seriously. Not everybody founds a religion but there have been too many. I suppose, if all your senses are affected, it becomes harder to find reality but what’s wrong with accepting ignorance? Were all prophets and witch doctors just stupid when they hallucinated from fasting, sleep deprivation or drugs and thought it must be real? They’d all be treated as mentally ill today.

    I think a really mentally ill person is one who has no possibility of separating hallucinations from reality even if they seriously try to. “My lord, my lord, why have you forsaken me?” shows at least a possibility of improvement. [email protected]

    Sorry to burst your bubble: nobody let Deandre into this country.

    I saw a massive mastiff on a leash in the Fleet & Farm store today. He didn’t come in on his own, but somebody let him in.

    The White Lion didn’t have to be accorded mooring privileges. Somebody let them land.

    At least today’s batch had the decency to pay a fare. Except for those on foot, of course.

    On the other hand, our so-called ‘leaders’ – insane? traitorous? – are letting everybody and his brothers and sisters in, even as we speak.

    This isn’t our first time around. (Though it is for the UK and Canada.)

    1808 – 1619 = 189. As in, years of experience, and time to patch the hole.

    Your comment reminded me of this story.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/victim-says-teen-behind-bloody-assault-robbery-walked-charges-thanks-low-iq/

    WTF?

    “On arrival, we learned from that same patient advocate that [the attacker’s] IQ is 49,” Flatley’s Facebook post read. “This makes him incompetent to aid in his own defense, therefore all charges were formally dismissed by the prosecutor, Sakina Ahmad.”

    The prosecutor told Clarke the best thing she could do was get a restraining order against her attacker.“

    What good is a restraining order against a 49 IQ violent Somali!? Who will read it to him while he’s gouging his neighbor’s eyes out with a screwdriver? If you’re smart enough to go get a screwdriver to use as a weapon to attempt to kill your nextdoor neighbor you’re smart enough to be hung for it.

    The prosecutor (why does my country have prosecutors named “Ahmad”, btw? Are there prosecutors in Somalia named “Charles”?) should have been more honest and tell her she should just move, or live in fear every single day.

    negrolotry in the UK where black men are officially 1.5% of the population but 70% of the men featured in advertising.

    I was wondering what was in my yoghurt:

    They’ve been adulterating the food in America for 400 years. Just ask the Rev Jackson.

    Right, the NYC Free Hugs guy punched in the head a young lady I know in the 42nd street subway station. He’d been punching girls for years. They finally did something about him when his attack on some Canadian girls was caught on video.

    ‘One has to ask, didn’t the good Sergeant not see the mobile phones being held up to record him?’

    The good sergeant’s attention was probably riveted to his interlocutor in the interaction he was having at the moment.

    I was once in a vaguely similar confrontation. I didn’t even notice the knife dude was waving down around my belly. Seriously.

    Look at the crowd? I don’t think so…

    You know, this is why men are good hunters and women focus on gathering roots and edible berries. They’re holistic. We focus.

  129. @GeneralRipper

    You mean just like BLM and Antifa have been doing for the past year and a half?

    No, buddy, I don’t mean quite the same like that.

    When a large group of Antifa/BLM thugs beat on a guy, they ain’t beating a guy in front of their house one on one.

    They are beating a guy in a crowd of thugs overseen by weak cops and mayors. So you can see right? It’s not the same.

    The Sgt. should know this. And if you get all emotional like the Sgt. did? You weaken yourself. And in this current climate? You got problems.

    Know the street, bud.

    It isn’t fair. But there are ways to protect you and your fam from the mentally ill that don’t include having to move out of your home and get charged and get bounced out of your job. Calm down. Get clear.

    So, what’s the skinny? What’s new?
    BLM is threatening he and his family in their house. They’ve had to flee? Will BLM burn his house down? Because we know BLM has immunity for arson.
    When they dooz, Whites will run back to their own houses, like rats, and shit in the corner.
    Guaranteed.

    They finally did something about him (!!!?!).
    Hilarious. Thanks for cheering me up.
    So this shitstain has been punching White girls “for years”, and nary a White man has hunted him down to kick his ass. In all of NYC, not one White ‘Man’.
    QED. I rest my case, Your Honor.

    Yeah I already admitted I didn’t see any evidence of racism. I saw a roided out bully. Not shocked at all to learn he’s a drill sergeant. But he showed extraordinarily poor judgement by acting like that… when he knew he was being filmed!

    You think any man who isn’t a buck-forty soaking wet is “roided out”, sweetheart.

    This guy is EXACTLY the kind of men we need in this country. When I was a kid, this would have been some neighborhood sideshow, not national news…lol

    The police were hardly EVER called for things that the MEN in the neighborhood could handle themselves. It’s called subsidiarity.

    Did your Daddy shove you and tell you to get off your lazy ass, stop smoking weed and get a job, Andy?

    Is that why you’re traumatized?

    That is long waffle of the evidence is weak but suggestive.

    Good pics though.

    The NSA probably has great charts on who exactly is taking all these psych meds. The rest of us get to speculate. I asked a psychiatrist about this once and his cursory dismissal of my interest implied that only a crazy person could be interested in this issue. Specifically I asked him how many of my co-workers who all have good health insurance he would estimate are consuming psych meds.

    Also: nicotine, alcohol, and caffeine are all central nervous system doses and there is a lot of undocumented and impossible-to-document self-medication going on so maybe the question is moot.

    Except Conley dindu it.
    America’s best lowyers had him on the stand for 8(?) hours. His story didn’t change. He were innocent.
    Frank was guilty as sin. If Ron says otherwise, he’s wrong. I read the book. Frank was a child anal rapist.
    Conley was innocent.
