Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively at VDARE.com

My faith in the integrity of courtroom justice was holed below the waterline twenty-some years ago, when I followed the child sex-abuse hysterias of the 1980s and 1990s.

Those were shameful injustices, travesties of justice. Decent, harmless citizens like Gerald Amirault and his family—there were many, many others—were convicted and given double-digit sentences on charges no sensible person could credit, and for which there was no physical evidence.

Ambitious, unscrupulous prosecutors; dim-witted juries; avaricious and/or ideological attorneys; bought-and-paid-for judges; all were on plain display there back in the nineties.

And our country then was more sane than it is now! It still had a stabilizing ballast of older citizens with memories of war and Depression, of reality biting hard. Today we are more frivolous, more stupid, more detached from reality.

So my expectations that today’s judicial system will consistently deliver anything resembling justice, could not be lower. When it does so, as in the Rittenhouse trial last month, I am quietly astonished.

Much more common, and more in line with my cynical expectations, was the appalling miscarriage of justice in the Arbery case, also of last month, where three decent, public-spirited citizens had their lives and the lives of their families destroyed by the determined efforts of an antiwhite cabal of prosecutors, politicians, activists, and media bloodsuckers.

The Arbery case illustrates an important point about the random and approximate nature of our justice system: that it is at its most random, most approximate when dealing with cases that snap easily into the cherished, beloved Narrative of working-class whites—especially Southerners—being beastly to blacks.

That Narrative is so deep-imbedded in our collective psyche, it is now unusual to find a person—even a normal, non-ideological person—whose worldview is not infected by it.

This week’s cases:

  • Jussie Smollett

This did not snap neatly into the Narrative, although Jussie did his best to make it do so. The white perps Jussie accused of having assaulted him back in January 2019 could never be located.

The only other human beings involved in the incident who could be located were the Osundairo brothers from Nigeria. My own cynicism kicked in from the very start, like many other peoples’—including, I am sure, the Chicago police officers assigned to investigate the so-called crime. I doubt there were ever so many eyes rolling simultaneously as when a roomful of seasoned big-city street cops were given that assignment. Jussie’s story was all so obviously phony … unless, of course, you have sold your soul to the Narrative.

How cynical was I? Well, when I first saw that stock picture of the Osundairo brothers, as black and as jacked as it is possible to be, my first thought was: “Oh, so those are the guys Jussie was paying to bugger him.”

On the courtroom testimony, that was not precisely the case; but I think I got the main idea of the relationships there.

Laying cynicism aside, I am now going to annoy some readers, I’m sure, by saying that I don’t think Jussie should have been brought to trial, any more than the three defendants in the Arbery case should have been. This, and that, were wastes of public time and resources for reasons ultimately political.

Remember the early stages of this case. January 2019, Jussie claimed he was attacked. February that year, state attorney Kim Foxx stepped away from the case, handing it to her assistant Joseph Magats to pursue, while also asking the FBI to take an interest. In March Jussie was indicted for a false report … but then, three weeks later, all charges were dropped.

Why? Well, Assistant D.A. Magats had cut a deal with Jussie’s attorneys. The deal was, they would drop the charges provided Jussie performed sixteen hours of community service and forfeited his ten-thousand-dollar bond.

That seems pretty fair to me for what was surely a trivial offense by a guy with no criminal background.

Why wasn’t it? Well, Rahm Emanuel, the Mayor of Chicago, and Eddie Johnson, his police chief were mad as hell about the charges being dropped. Chief Johnson had given over three thousand man-hours to investigating the damn thing, he protested. To which a sensible response would have been: “Well then, let’s not waste any more resources on it.” That wasn’t the response he got, though.

And on the national political scene, Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, with their eyes of course fixed on the following year’s presidential election, were pushing to have lynching made a federal hate crime. The Smollett story, which both senators pretended to believe, was helpful to them and needed to be kept alive.

Plus the FBI had gotten involved on Kim Foxx’s urging. So what with one political thing and another political thing, the Jussie Smollett case stayed alive when it should have died peacefully in late March 2019.

I apologize to Jussie Smollett on behalf of all citizens who believe in swift, clean, proportionate, and un-political justice.

You’re an idiot, Jussie, and a deeply unattractive human being. Neither thing is against the law, though. You’ve been unfairly treated. Ten thousand dollars and sixteen hours of community service looks proportionate to me. It’s not your fault the media is full of gullible, Narrative-soaked nitwits. I’d like to see them in court.

  • The Maxwell-Epstein mysteries.

The federal prosecutors in the Maxwell trial told us they’d rest their case Friday. However, a key attorney has taken ill, so now the prosecution may not rest until next week.

ORDER IT NOW

Ms. Maxwell is charged with procuring underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein, the super-rich guy who passed away under mysterious circumstances in August 2019, and the precise source of whose wealth is also mysterious, at any rate to me. All Epstein’s on record as having done for a living is managing the financial affairs of other people—very seriously rich people, to be sure; but I can’t see that he got as much as he seems to have gotten just from that.

Whatever: Epstein was very rich, Ms. Maxwell and he were some kind of an item; and prosecutors claim she helped procure jailbait for him and his rich friends.

Ms. Maxwell is the daughter of British media mogul Robert Maxwell, who also died a mysterious death—drowned, either by suicide or otherwise, after falling from his luxury yacht in 1991.

Robert Maxwell was a piece of work. Born to a poor Jewish family in 1920s Czechoslovakia, he got out of Nazi-occupied Europe, joined the British Army, and had a good war. Postwar he went into publishing, got modestly rich, and was a Labour Party Member of Parliament for six years in the 1960s. The 1970s and 1980s he spent getting richer from media takeovers. After his death, it turned out he’d been looting his business enterprises to the degree that they soon collapsed.

He was also a spy of some kind, with links to Britain’s MI6, the Soviet Union’s KGB, and Israel’s Mossad. He was either a double or a triple agent, no-one seems to know for sure.

And he and Jeffrey Epstein were pals back in the day—in the 1980s, that is, when Robert Maxwell was coming under increasing suspicion of financial shenanigans and Epstein himself was a player in Towers Financial Corporation which later—after Epstein had left the firm—turned out to have been a massive Ponzi scheme. Birds of a feather.

Was Epstein, like Maxwell, working with Israeli intelligence at some level? It’s not improbable. I refer you to Miami Herald reporter Julie Brown’s book published this summer, Perversion of Justice, delving into some of the mysteries of Epstein’s life and death.

Most to the point here: when Robert Maxwell’s businesses collapsed following his death in 1991, his daughter Ghislaine, youngest of his nine children, was not quite thirty. The whole family was in distress, having gotten used to living high. Ghislaine moved to New York, where she met Epstein. He seems to have given the family considerable help, in return for which Ghislaine shared not only her intimate favors but also her contacts among Britain’s rich elite, apparently including Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth’s second son.

It’s all a strange and tangled tale, and still today getting stranger and tangleder. Observers of the current trial tell us that the prosecution hasn’t been trying very hard, are just going through the motions. There are murmurs that rich and powerful people—ex-Presidents even—wish it so.

If the complete story of Epstein and the Maxwells is ever written out in full and published between hard covers—if—the Amazon delivery driver will need a hand truck to get it to your front door.

  • Another Minneapolis martyr

The Kim Potter trial got under way this week.

Ms. Potter was a police officer on the force of Brooklyn Center, an inner suburb of Minneapolis. Back in April, she and a fellow officer pulled over a car for a technical violation. In the car were 20-year-old Daunte Wright and his girlfriend. The cops ran Wright’s ID through their computer: turned out there was a warrant out for his arrest.

They went back to his car and told him to step out. Officer Potter’s colleague started to cuff him; but Wright pulled away and got back into the car, plainly intending to drive away. The colleague tried to pull him back out of the car while Officer Potter pulled out her weapon and yelled “I’ll Tase you! Taser! Taser! Taser!” Unfortunately, she’d pulled out her revolver by mistake.

It fired; the car rolled a few yards, then hit another car and stopped. Daunte Wright was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s all on video and it’s plain that Officer Potter knew at once that she’d pulled the wrong weapon, and was distraught over the result. She’s since resigned from the force.

In the trial that got under way this week she faces two charges: first-degree manslaughter, second-degree manslaughter. Neither implies an intent to kill, only different degrees of carelessness with a weapon.

Ms. Potter is white, though, while Daunte Wright was black, or at any rate black-ish—a quadroon, would be my guess.

So this one is a good fit for the Narrative. Not the Narrative about tobacco-chewing good ol’ boys lynching black field hands, but the related secondary narrative of white city cops shooting young black men every chance they get.

And this in Minneapolis, remember, or near enough; the very city from which the Holy Blessed Martyr George Floyd ascended to Heaven on a golden cloud. The show trial of Derek Chauvin was in fact under way nearby when this whole incident occurred.

Being such a good fit for that Narrative, on the Derbyshire Principle we can reasonably expect a mockery of justice here. Standard sentences for those two manslaughter charges are seven years and four, maximums 15 years and ten. Ms. Potter will likely get the maximums, to run consecutively. And then the feds will pile on with the “civil rights” buncombe; although that will not, absolutely not, constitute Double Jeopardy—not, no way, never! Don’t even think it’s Double Jeopardy!

The jury, twelve seated and two alternates, is seven men, seven women. Two of the women are Asian, one is black; all the other jurors are white.

Naturally, the demonstrators are out in force. The police probably not so much. After last year’s ructions and the ritual sacrifice of Officer Chauvin, it’s amazing there are any cops left in Minneapolis.

One stomach-turning aspect of all these wretched stories is the fawning coverage given to the deceased. Sure, I understand de mortuis nil nisi bonum, “ask not for whom the bell tolls,” and so on; but you can take the eulogies too far. Here’s The New York Times

Daunte Wright has been remembered by friends as upbeat and gregarious, someone who loved to play basketball and was a supportive father to his son, Daunte Jr., who was a year old when Mr. Wright, 20, was killed by a police officer during a traffic stop.

Who was Daunte Wright? by Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs, December 8, 2021

And that’s nothing compared to the coverage Wright got from the BBC back in April when the story was new.

Mr. Mason [one of Wright’s schoolteachers] told Associated Press that Mr. Wright was “a charismatic kid … one of those kids that everybody looked up to.”

Mr. Wright was a talented basketball player when he was in high school, and used to tell Mr. Mason that he wanted to play for the NBA.

Daunte Wright: ‘One of those kids everybody looked up to’, BBC, April 15, 2021

There is actually a George Floyd connection, the BBC told us. Courteney Ross, billed here as George Floyd’s girlfriend, was at one point Daunte Wright’s teacher. She testified that, quote:

It’s enough that Floyd is gone, but for one of my youths to be gone as well. He was just a wonderful, beautiful boy.

As my old Dad was wont to say: “Where are all the bad people buried?”

ORDER IT NOW

Daunte Wright was in fact quite seriously bad. Back in December 2019 he was charged with aggravated robbery after he threatened with a gun a woman who had given him hospitality. He demanded she hand over \$820 in cash he knew she had stashed in her bra[Video shows Daunte Wright posing with gun in woman’s bathroom before robbery, by Michael Ruiz, Teny Sahakian, Fox News, September 9, 2021].

There’s a thing that we normal people wonder all the time: Why are these martyrs and victims of the Black Lives Matter pantheon all such scuzzy antisocial unemployable lowlifes? Daunte Wright, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, … These are your heroes? These are your martyrs? Yeccch!

If, as the BLM types keep telling us, cops and vigilantes shoot young black men opportunistically, at random, how come they never hit a young chess wizard or even just a trainee accountant?

    Yes, it’s uncanny how coonsistently black heroes turn out to be pieces of shit. It’s practically a given.

    But I’m not sure that normies get it….because the hostile media informs us that magical people are saintly, kind, talented, rhythmic, sexually superior, and innocent even while burning buildings and stomping people to death.

    TBH, the jewing is so in your face brazen that…..one has to marvel that there are institutions dedicated to propagating these lies and that people carve careers out of an agenda totally based on lies and bullshit.

    Just imagine what our world would be like if all of that energy could be applied to doing something worthwhile.

  3. “Today we are more frivolous, more stupid, more detached from reality.”

    Exactly. I have been reading lately about America in the 1950s and noted how much more serious we were then.

    Derb, your equanimity re: Smollett would be acceptable in a secure, sane White-run society – pre 1964 America or Britain.

    It’s not anymore. Smollett was a genuine case of racial agitation and incitement – the kind Whites are constantly accused of (but always turns out to be a hoax by some Jewish or Black subversive).

    Look at Waukesha’s bloody parade attack – these things have consequences in a racially-charged environment. That’s what we live in, Derb – the only way through is forward – we are never going back to 1960.

    To flog a cliche (that’s only tired because it remains true), you may not be interested in racializing the justice system and politics, but your opponents are – and they have power, not you.

    You can recognize that and be part of the solution or you can pretend it doesn’t exist and get wrecked.

  7. SMK says: • Website

    The “Derb” is sympathetic toward a deranged and psychotic hater of Trump and his supporters who lied about being assaulted and “lynched” by white “racists” wearing MAGA hats to advance and confirm the “narrative” of blacks as the victims of “systemic racism” and “white supremacy.” And also, so he hoped, apparently, to enhance his career, and, moreover, as an attention-seeking narcissist.

    And the MSM, and nearly all leftists and democrats, including Joe Biden and kamala Harris, believed or affected to believe his ludicrous and transparent lies, further inciting hatred of whites, especially the tens of millions who voted for Trump, and the US as defined by “systemic racism” and “white supremacy.” How many whites were assaulted, raped, and murdered because of Smollet’s lies and the anti-white demagogy of the MSM and leftists and democrats like Biden and Harris?

    And Smollet not only lied about an assault and “lynching” by white “racists” but reported the “crime” his invented to the police who conducted a lengthy and costly investigation. If he hadn’t reported the “crime” to the police who realized he was lying, he would not have been prosecuted and, refusing to admit he lied and to accept a plea-bargain, would not have been tried and convicted by a jury of 5 felonies.

    And even after reporting the “crime” to police, he could have admitted he lied and apologized and there wouhld have been no trial and felony convictions. At worst, he might have been sentenced, under a plea-bargain, to 30-60 days of probation and perhaps 50-hours of some kind of “community service” -if even that?

    And the “Derb”is sympathetic.

  8. The case is tainted by the corruption of law enforcement, common in that part of the world, where I grew up, at least in the pass. Killer pere, formerly of the police, asked DA Jackie Johnson, a friend, to block investigation, the request being a crime. She imposed the coverup, also a crime, for which she is now under felony indictment. Those who, following her orders, wrote the documents asserting no wrongdoing, are morally and perhaps legally party to obstruction of justice. The Deep South and Long Island are different places.
    Many commenting on the adventure seem unable to distinguish between evidence and assumption, suspicion, and wish. He Arbery allegedly entered the house five times, consistently leaving without stealing anything. Not stealing is not evidence of stealing. The day of his killing he left the house with, visibly to the killers, nothing in his possession. The line of reasoning—there had been thefts in the neighborhood, Arbery was in the neighborhood, therefore Arbery was the thief—works in the comment section of Unz but not in court.
    That the shooter’s father consoled him is perhaps touching, but irrelevant, as the law judges you on what you do, not how you feel about it later. Doubtless Arbery could have run in another direction, but this is irrelevant as Georgia law does not prescribe your direction of flight when pursued by vigilantes in trucks. That he had THC in his system might have been relevant if he had been on trial for drug use, but he wasn’t on trial for anything at all.
    As the prosecutor told the jury—I presume you watched the video—the only question before them was whether the three were conducting a legitimate citizen’s arrest. If not, running Arbery down was an assault made with no authority. The killers had not seen Arbery commit a felony since he had not committed one. They had no grounds to suspect him of committing a burglary since he left the house empty-handed. No felony, no reasonable suspicion of felony, no citizen’s arrest.
    The self-defense defense has no basis in law. If you attack someone, as by chasing him with trucks which you use to herd him in desired directions—this is ADW—and at some point he turns to fight, you cannot kill him and claim self-defense. This is neither rocket science nor legally speculative, being (I think) settled law everywhere.
    I don’t think I can reasonably be charged with being soft on crime by blacks, or anyone else, but murder is murder, regardless of the albedo of the murderers. Again, the South does not work like northern suburbs.

  9. Dutch Boy says:

    As a non-Southern, non-Confederacy admiring observer, I fairly quickly identified the Arbery case as one of justifiable homicide. The accused were engaged in a legal (then) act of citizens’ arrest when Arbery attempted to wrest control of a firearm from the shooter. That is a kill or be killed situation and thus a legitimate act of self defense.

    The Maxwell trial indicates accusations of sexual abuse of minors by powerful celebrities does exist. It seems Epstein’s and Maxwell’s tastes went no further down than the nubile. The legacy media seem to fudge if some of the victims were twelve. They focus on “as young as fourteen”. I would suggest that is moral corruption rather than mental sickness. Whether the sexual abuse of small children allegations in child care centres was all delusion, I am no longer sure. At least one retired FBI agent is convinced they are real.

    The mathematical but bookstoreless Mr. Derb assumes that Jussie’s hoax was trivial career-enhancement. But Jussie’s hoax, as everyone in the country knows, might have incited violent and deadly protests, in Chicago and other cities. I liken this to arson. The arsonist “merely” wants to burn down the building. But the consequences could include the deaths of occupants and firefighters. Thus, the sentence for (white) arson is harsh, even when the secondary consequences do not ensue. When the Jussie judge imposes sentence, this should be taken into account.

Kendi. (Not all your stuff appears on The Unz Review.) From the end:

    Pretty nice. I don’t blame Kendi for milking the rubes. My question is: Is there a chamber of Hell hot enough for the college bureaucrats who subject their students to this poisonous dreck under the pretense it is a form of higher learning?

    Look who straggled in, the prodigal son who poured water on Ron’s favorite theories.

    I have to agree with the old coot this time, the McMichaels overstepped their boundaries. The elder McMichael did a poor job of knowing the law–inexcusable since he used to be the law himself.

    The smarter thing would have been to follow jogger boy down the road with their cameras rolling, shouting at him that all this footage would be going to the po-po. He’d have been scared shitless, and probably found a new cul-de-sac to terrorize.

    Or they could have set some sort of primitive trap like an open container of paint perched above a door left ajar. The sight of Arbery running away with white paint all over him would be priceless.

  18. Uncle Sam says:
    @Frederick V. Reed

    Arbery knew that his pursuers knew that he was up to no good. That is why he kept running, euphemistically called “jogging”. If he had not done anything wrong , anyone with an IQ of 70 would have stopped and explained himself. The McMichaels would have let him go on his way. They certainly come across as reasonable people.

    The McMichaels certainly had probable cause to do a citizens arrest. That is the key point. The fact that Arbery was in that house under constructions uninvited on several occasions is a burglay felony even tho nothing was taken. Under Georgia law you don’t have to take anything. What was his intent is the issue. Arbery was no carpenter, plumber or electrician. There is nothing in his record that he did any type of construction work. So you can easily infer that he wanted to steal something.

    In any case, all of the above becomes irrelevant when he decided to attack Travis. It became a life and death struggle over the shotgun, which resulted in Arbery dying. It was a justifiable homicide. The trial was a show trial staged for political purposes and is a travesty of justice. I hope it is reversed on appeal. I wish all 3 of these convicted men the best.

    Because all blacks are pretty much the same way.

    Also, it’s the way that they died-at the hands of the Evil White People. Most niggros would have killed Fentanyl Floyd or the Gentle Jogger over \$10 or a bag of weed without a second thought, but if YT does it, no matter how legit; no matter how much the niggro caused the incident, the blacks are on Team niggro.

    Its w0uld be comical this outbreak of ”negroism” that requires us to not believe our lying eyes were it not so serious for those who are the victims of it.

    In our modern world of ubiquitous video we are actually able to see criminals committing their crimes. Even the hoodies and masks they wear ( perhaps their only observance of social norms) we can see their hands and foreheads and they are those of the negro. White palms and black fists are hard to hide when you are striking a Chinese woman or elderly white man but rather than ask NASA or the FBI to enlarge this aspect of the suspects identity, news media prefers to offer us only the most grainy video or conceal it altogether. It doesn’t work because the more they try to hide the more we KNOW what the problem is and it is not ”gun violence” it is negro violence and it is out of control in those states that let it get out of control.

    I actually relish it. Philadelphia has had more than 500 murders this year. Most of the victims young negro males. Well, it’s a start. The Philadelphia police couldn’t get away with shooting that many strutting Leroy’s but can you imagine how horrible life would be in Philadelphia if its negro population didn’t kill that many of its hoodrats every year. Same with Baltimore, Chicago etc. The hoodrats are doing the job the police can’t.

    My guess is this will end once the Democrats understand that, as important as the negro vote is to them, it is costing them more from the loss of the support they were getting from their immigrant. subbase. Will Asian, Hindu and Latino voters stick with the Democrats when they realize that Negro Supremacy means they too can become a White Hispanic like George Zimmerman or a white supremacist Muslim convenience store owner when they shoot back at the black animal robbing him.

    “…the child sexual-abuse hysterias of the 1980s and 1990s”-the “ritual sex-abuse hoax,” the “mass-molestation” daycare prosecutions, the interfamilial sex-ring prosecutions- are inconceivable apart from feminist ideology and the anti-rape movement and CSA victimology. The hysteria over and obsession with CSA began, officially, when Florence Rush gave a speech at the 1972 NY radical feminist rape conference on “The Sexual Abuse of Children’ that was later published as a chapter in a book with all the other speeches.

    “Believe the children,” they implored and demanded, irrespective of the facts and even if there was not a scintilla of physical evidence or a single adult material witness to corroborate the accusations, and no matter how bizarre and fantastic the accusations, and SVU detectives, prosecutors, and juries obeyed, blighting and destroying the lives of hundreds of people, virtually all of them women in the daycare persecutions, convicted of myriads of sex crimes against toddlers they not only didn’t commit but which never even happened.

    Is the “retired FBI agent” you cite but don’t name Kenneth Lanning, a fanatical CSA victimologist who, as I remember, played a crucial role in creating and sustaining this mass hysteria and lunacy and moral panic and secular witch-hunt?

    This is not a trivial matter.

  26. pecosbill says:

    John Derbyshire on VDARE gave a far better analysis of this travesty of justice and joke of a trial.

    The case is tainted by the corruption of law enforcement

    Wrong. It was the failure of the court system. Arbery was arrested on at least two felonies. One was carrying a loaded gun to a high school event which is a serious crime. He was sentenced to five years but allowed to serve it on probation. Later, he plead guilty to felony theft of a TV from Walmart, which should have revoked his parole on the gun charge. Arbery often used the jogging excuse when confronted by police who found him in trespass circumstances. Law enforcement did their jobs, the courts and probation officers failed. Fred, you are incorrect.

    He Arbery allegedly entered the house five times, consistently leaving without stealing anything.

    No Fred. Arbery was caught five times on video in the house in question and under construction. This video got circulated around Satilla Shores, so the residents had a good idea who the frequent trespasser was. Having left without anything proves only that nothing easy to carry and sell was found. But five times trespassing into one house shows felony intent. Police, for some reason did not question Arbery on this. Other incidents occurred near the house under construction; but, I’ve corrected you enough for now on the lead up to the shooting.

    The line of reasoning—there had been thefts in the neighborhood, Arbery was in the neighborhood, therefore Arbery was the thief—works in the comment section of Unz but not in court.

    Very light and trite Fred, go back and do some work on this statement.

    irrelevant as Georgia law does not prescribe your direction of flight when pursued by vigilantes in trucks.

    They were not vigilantes rather residents of the community. Fred, the truck was stopped and Arbery had room to keep running unmolested. Georgia is a stand your ground state and one is not obligated to retreat, but, if you are a white man being confronted by a black, you damn better be able to show the court you took all reasonable steps to deescalate and avoid killing. Arbery might have chosen to continue the jog, but chose instead to attack a man holding a shotgun.

    The killers had not seen Arbery commit a felony since he had not committed one.

    No. First of all it was not a citizens arrest. Had the pursuers seen a felony in progress they could have used force to arrest Arbery. As it were, they had reasonable suspicion which is enough to stop and question, in police parlance. Here an arrest was not warranted, but questioning was reasonable given Arbury’s action on that day; fleeing the house under construction after having been seen by a neighborhood woman. Police were on the way to do the questioning. Arbery knew he was on probation. Another arrest might send him to prison on a parole revocation.

    This was a political trial from the get go. The worthless, soon to be one term Governor, wanted red meat for his Atlanta howlers and race baiters. He is a chicken-Schiff. He let militant, armed blacks crowd close to the courthouse and intimidate the jury and judge. Had the governor had any courage, he’d have had the state guard seal off the streets two or three blocks away. But like I said, the Gov is a coward, same goes for the AG. The indictment of the original DA in the case is pure vindictiveness, the Atlanta crowd wanted pounds of flesh and they’ll get much more.

    If you attack someone, as by chasing him with trucks which you use to herd him in desired directions

    More like following instead of herding. But I do agree one has the right to self defense if attacked, as was Travis when Arbery intentionally advanced on him and tried to pull the gun away, which Travis was in legal control of and not pointing it at Arbery.

    Those who, following her (the original DA) orders, wrote the documents asserting no wrongdoing, are morally and perhaps legally party to obstruction of justice.

    By that logic, all the bomber crews who knowingly dropped bombs on German cities burning alive women, children, noncombatants as well as Jews and others in work camps, are guilty as well. These were war crimes and I know of no air crew who refused illegal orders, which they were.

    Again, the South does not work like northern suburbs.

    And that’s a good thing.

    Now that I’ve corrected you, Fred, go back and rewrite your post.

    BTW, Moderator, why is Fred’s post in yellow? Does this mean it is the voice of God or something?

    Derb is right that the “justice” system is FUBAR, but his analysis is questionable, particularly on the Kim Potter case.

    First… not trying to be pedantic here, but… Potter DID NOT shoot Daunte with a “revolver”!!!! Cops haven’t carried revolvers for 30+ years. You know that, Derb. C’mon, man.

    Second, Potter absolutely deserves prison time for negligent homicide or manslaughter. Yes, Daunte Wright was a scumbag, but that fact does not excuse the stupidity and incompetence of Potter in shooting him. Shooting someone “accidentally” is simply 100% unacceptable and anyone without a badge would absolutely go to prison for it.

    Derb himself has written about how his own personal guns were summarily seized by the totalitarian New York gun permitting system — because his son, not him, got into a fracas in a bar! These people would hang you in a second if you shot a young black. The same standard should apply to their badged mercenaries.

    Derb is wrong about the possible sentencing, too. Kim Potter might do time, but I think the sentence will be very lenient. She is, after all, a chick and an affirmative action hire. She will cry on the witness stand and tell the jury how much she loved to “protect and serve” underprivileged black bucks who have been “victims of racism” or some such nonsense.

    She won’t get the max and she won’t be charged by the Feds. Bank on it. Look at how that chick cop in Texas got off easy after accidentally shooting a black — in his own apartment — because she was too preoccupied with texting her boyfriend to schedule a fuck session. She got ten years. Any white man who did that — particularly one without a badge — would fry.

    You can if you’re a plainclothes cop. That’s probably a large part of this case. The ex-cop probably was thinking he was still “just like” a plainclothes cop, and acted accordingly, including trying to bury the case by using his pull w/the DA. Evidently he almost succeeded, too. The judges, the prosecutors, the cops — these swine are all thick as thieves. If Arbery had been white, they could have killed him and nobody would have ever heard of this case. It quietly would have been dropped down the memory hole. Bad luck for the rednecks, they shot one of the system’s protected species and got caught up in a perfect “racial justice” storm. LOL!

    Another misogynist, possibly an MRA or influenced by the lies and half-truths of the soi-disant “men’s movement, whining about how women are always coddled and men crucified by te criminal justice system -when, all things considered, especially the nature of the crimes and criminal records, black males are the most indulged, by far, of all criminals and criminal defendants.

    Space permitting, I could give myriads of examples of black males with histories of violence and criminality beginning at age 13 or 14 or 15 who’ve committed dozens of violent and other mala in se felonies and are still free in their 30’s to commit more violent and mala in se crimes. And also of black males with 6 or 7 or 8 or more felony convictions, even for acts of violence, who’ve been in jail a few times but never in prison? Is this true of even one white female in respect to her history of crime and the repeated coddling?

    To mention but one specific case: Do you believe a white female with the criminal record of Darrel Brooks, who assaulted a person and then ran over her or him with her SUV would have been released from jail, almost immediately, on \$1.000 bail, free to drive the SUV into a large crowd of people, killing 6 and injuring over 60.

    Perhaps the legal argument is no longer relevant. In case you haven’t noticed, the only sense in which we’re not having a race war is that we’re not fighting back. That needs to change, not continue. Eleven of those jurors were white. They should not have voted to convict.

I’m looking for a sympathetic way into the topic — it seems like everyone today has a highly prejudicial view of that era, whereas it was in actuality prosperous, orderly, and a good time to be alive. I wonder if the 60s provided some sort of highly superficial yet unbreachable cultural barrier for most of us alive now — basically, “Oh my God, people in hats wearing ties and everything’s black and white!

    But not the 2nd degree manslaughter conviction, for which the judge imposed the maximum, 57 months. At least a small amount of justice. The 3rd degree murder conviction was reversed on appeal because the judge ruled a “depraved mind” was not demonstrated, whatever that means, or how the judge decided it had not been “demonstrated”. Noor entered the police force on a special only-shitskins-need-apply fast track program. A psychiatric evaluation is necessary before entering the police force in Minneapolis, and the Psychiatrist stated bluntly that Noor was unfit psychologically to be a police officer. Should have listened to The Shrink, and none of this would have happened.

    It’s always a bad week in the U.S. “justice” system.

    There are many reasons for this. A few include…

    1. That, as John implicitly notes in his post, the legal code has never had less reverence or respect for natural law. The great societies of what might broadly be termed “the West” can be characterized by tremendous respect for natural law. In Ancient Greek society, even tyrants deferred to it, and the Gods and fates were the keepers and the enforcers of natural law. Today, natural justice means less than nothing, and “popular justice” — law as politics — is the rule.

    2. That average people have zero access to justice, on account of its high costs, artificial complexity, a laughable civil discovery process, and the fact that the average court case takes years to decide. So the law is primarily employed as a shell game by elites, and entirely at their behest. (And, make no mistake, the big winners of class action lawsuits and personal injury lawsuits are always the lawyers.)

    3. That the Talmudic Common Law system of deferring to precedent has become a bad joke. So much has accumulated over the past three centuries that a skilled “legal research” team can find precedent to cover both sides of any issue. This should do nothing but erode respect for the law.

    4. That anybody who has ever worked with an experienced American litigator or trial lawyer will tell you that they are a uniquely unpleasant tribe. Decent, well-intentioned people leave that job fast. Yet judges are selected from this ignominious pool, and are generally among the worst of the lot. It is a bizarre and warped personality, generally a power-hungry one, that aspires to be an American judge.

    All of these problems are connected. The end result is that the judicial function has become commingled with the executive and the political.

    Once that prom photo of Arbery turned-up, the niceties of the legal process became bit players (if anyone still uses that expression). What the defendants should have done at the time of initial contact was to ask Arbery if he attended his prom. Then he would have said Yes, and they would know that a prom photo would ultimately emerge, and they would stop the confrontation. Pro tip to looters, etc.: Fake a prom photo and wear it around your neck on a lanyard. This is now a defendant credential in the legal system. It is like the the framed medical-society certificates filling the wall of your doctor’s office.

  52. The law is a political weapon. That should be obvious, especially when it involves black people.

    Highlighting what the law allows in this state that may be different in that state should show that the law makes no sense and the average person hasn’t the training in the asinine interpretation that some lawyer or judge might infer. The law creates victims of the law as part of its operations.

    That Arbury was a known criminal with a violent past means the law didn’t do its job of segregating him from society permanently. The law is the major problem in this situation since had it done the required job, none of this would have happened. It put that POS back on the street where he could continue being a problem and left him on the street after he proved beyond doubt that he can’t be trusted.

    That his pursuers had no cause to go after him is a small matter of bad judgement that in and of itself would not have harmed anyone. When the low life Arbury committed unintentional suicide by pulling on the barrel of a shotgun that should have been the end of the matter. A decent prosecutor would have held off any prosecutions as part of a deal to not give the pursuers a medal for helping clean up the town.

    Arbury is dead. His pursuers are slated for prison and the law and justice system, that failed miserably in its duty to protect the population, is in no way tarnished to continue its depredations upon the population.

    There’s a near epidemic now of female teachers having sex with their underage boy charges. The rapes are routinely described as “romps, affairs, trysts, relationships, dalliances” and so on.

    How do SMKs react? By making light of raped males.

    In fact, they often get jealous of the young victims, mewling: “Where were all the hot teachers when I was in grammar school!”

    The issue on the table is women getting lesser punishments for similar crimes based solely on possessing vag. The same PoonPriv that nets them child-custody in most divorces. And a ton of other queenly perks.

    FACT: Too many men ARE swayed by female tears.

    FACT: Female violence is often hidden (committed by stealth, poisons, hired proxies, etc.).

    FACT: Women start HALF the fights with male partners (and ALL in lesbianated couples).

    Feminists brag that women are equal-better-tougher than men. Then they demand that guys not treat females equally when provoked by same. They will say that guys are bigger and so should “control themselves.” Of course, they invariably excuse violent women who let THEIR feelings get the better of them.

    Be male and spit in another man’s face. Say: “It’s just moisture. Besides, I’m smaller than you.” See what happens.

    Again, the issue: supposedly “equality-seeking” societies cutting females slack simply because they are female.

    “If the cops all over the US are running El Salvador-style death squads to exterminate innocent black people, why not pick a sample case where it is clear that the person killed was a perfectly respectable citizen going about their lawful business and a random target chosen purely on the basis of skin color? Why pick sample cases where the deceased is a scumbag when you would get so much more sympathy for your cause by picking a better test case?”

    Once Arbury charged for the gun it was a kill or be killed situation.

    Absolutely. Blacks are naturally stupid. In Arbery’s case:

    Idiocy + Impetuosity + The Crackers wont do shit + I will get away with it + I am tough = A Coffin

    Anyone charging a man holding a shot gun with two other fellows as backup has got to be an ass. He got what he deserved in spades ! Blacks have climbed a mountain with their lawlessness and are on the slippery slope of the other side with the weight of every other ethnic group on their backs.

    They dont understand how this world works and its a long long way down.

    Would agree with Derb that expensive prison time really serves no purpose for a non violent first offender like Smollett; however, the \$10K surrendered seems a little light to compensate for 3000 hours of police time. With all benefits, Chicago police man-hours are probably at least \$100 per hour, so restitution of \$300K would seem reasonable in addition to whatever punitive fine would be dictated by the law.

    Nope, Arbrey was chased and followed, he was confronted by an armed man and in fear for his life.
    It cannot be self defence if you follow and confront someone.
    Michaels was the pursuer and the antagonist.

    For example, if a person creates a conflict that becomes violent then unintentionally kills the other party while defending himself, a claim of self-defense might reduce the charges or punishment, but would not excuse the killing entirely.

    Michaels created the conflict.

    Many commenting on the adventure seem unable to distinguish between evidence and assumption, suspicion, and wish.

    And you seem unable to distinguish between reality, fantasy and the current behaviour of blacks.

    Everything, most times, seem perfectly logical to real lawyers and wannabee lawyers. However we live in a world of emotion and one today where self preservation is paramount when blacks are seen consistently loitering around. Lawyers are essentially word engineers, twisting narratives to achieve their goals which are : To satisfy the people PAYING THEM. This is clearly evident when we look at any case in Court. Both the Prosecution and Defence have far different spins on the “evidence and assumption, suspicion, and wish”. Our country is run by Lawyers and given the state of the place this gives one a view of what they are all about.

    Now as you pointed out :

    He Arbery allegedly entered the house five times, consistently leaving without stealing anything. Not stealing is not evidence of stealing.

    I ask you Freddy, what if he had entered YOUR house in a similar manner. He may have left 5 times without stealing but what about the 6th time ? Maybe there would have been something to steal AND if the owner was around a murder added to the equation.

    That is just one example. If we look at all your other assertions and ask WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE we would get a different answer. You would not be so “logical” with your lawyer like B/S.

    The self-defense defense has no basis in law. If you attack someone, as by chasing him with trucks which you use to herd him in desired directions—this is ADW—and at some point he turns to fight, you cannot kill him and claim self-defense

    What claptrap ! Please tell us exactly which law school you attended !

    Hence your commentary is BUNK more so when we take into consideration Arbery;s past bad behaviours and brushes with the law. Arbery was an accident waiting to happen. Luckily this time it happened to him.

    As time passes and the public (black especially) loses interest, these three whites will be released. They had every justification for capping this wretched character depicted in his photos one way, as a smiling “about to enter University” scholar but in reality a hard faced loser with a criminal mentality and past.

    As the prosecutor told the jury—I presume you watched the video—the only question before them was whether the three were conducting a legitimate citizen’s arrest.

    I presumed Fredrico read the law. It is two sentences and establishes a different standard in each sentence. If the offense is a felony, which burglary is, then all the citizen arrester requires is reasonable suspicion and the McMichael’s easily had that so the attempted arrest was legal and Arbery is the guilty party in attacking the younger McMichael and attempting to take his gun and presumably use it on he and his father.

    As has already been said by some great criminal defense and civil rights attorneys but juries should not be left to their own devices in interpreting the applicable laws. The judge should have instructed them on how to interpret the law and should have applied the concept of lenity to favor the defense given the contradictions and ambiguities in the citizens arrest law.

    People can’t say or assume somebody stole something and then confront, detain that person with deadly force in a citizens arrest scheme without strong evidence not just suspicion. Even the cops just don’t go around arresting people unless they have enough powerful evidence.

    Using your logic these three goof-balls could be in Walmart and claim that they saw an innocent old lady put a candybar in her pocket and then chase her down, then point a gun at her, discharge the gun when she cries out, puts an arm between her and them. Your logic is it’s acceptable to escalate the situation and if you believe your in danger to shoot somebody over a candybar or tool? Why not call security or the cops and let it go at that?

    Arbery was criminal dirtbag and his death is certainly not a loss to society, in fact some people may live because he’s not going to be around to violently kill an innocent person; and the taxpayers were spared future incarceration cost of Arbery, instead taxpayers are going to pay to incarcerate three instead of one in an ironic twist that was totally unnecesssary.

    If a person (any person) has a legal right to openly carry a gun, and said person is charged by another in an attempt to wrestle the gun away,

    Who was ‘charging’ whom?

    1) The 3 left the safety of their houses to chase someone who they
    thought was the same guy that had supposedly burglarized some empty house.

    2) Travis had testified that he would not chase someone who is armed. Yet he grabs his fully loaded shotgun to chase someone who at best might be a burglar.

    3) Travis left this baby son in the house, grabbed a loaded shotgun, jumped into his truck to give chase.

    4) All they saw was some black guy jogging/running.

    5) They jumped in their trucks, 2 of them (father and son) armed, and chased Arbery for 5 minutes: back and forth, back and forth.

    6) Arbery ran away from them several times, trying to get away from some strange men chasing him in pickup trucks. They kept after him, blocked him, pushed him into a ditch by a truck, then finally cornered him*.

    7) What would you do if 3 strange men were chasing you in pickup trucks, with the apparent intention to kill you? In desperation Arbery tried to disarm the guy who was trying to kill him: is that so hard to imagine?

    8) They didn’t call 911. They didn’t just track him at a distance while on the phone to cops to direct them to his location. They decided to go hunting.

    9) You can clearly see Arbery’s hands running towards Travis’s truck: he has no weapons. Instead of taking cover behind his truck door, Travis goes around – with a loaded shotgun – to confront Arbery. Travis knows Arbery is unarmed, that’s why he confidently leaves the cover provided by his massive truck to confront Arbery in the open. Again: in desperation Arbery tried to disarm the guy who was trying to kill him: is that so hard to imagine?

    Travis hanged himself by his lying testimony.

  97. Due to skyrocketing Black crime, cops in the big cities are negro-fatigued and utterly disgusted with how badly the criminal justice system has been perverted. Many of them are transferring to police agencies far away from any sizable city, especially those with a large Black population.

    Those cops who remain in the large cities only do what is minimally required of them because they know good-and-well that most of the criminals they arrest will soon be back on the streets with barely a slap on the wrist. There is little if any proactivity in their police work in terms of actively looking for bad guys. White officers, in particular, avoid dealing with Blacks because they know the system will likely accuse them of ‘racial profiling’ if things turn ugly.

    The truth is, big city cops don’t really trust the ‘system.’ Many don’t even trust their own departments because they know that a good many of their own superiors would throw them under the bus if given the chance. Though most cops would never admit it in any public forum, they are quite aware of how dysfunctional and criminally-oriented Blacks are. Even Black officers among themselves will concede how screwed-up their own people are.

    One more point. Few are aware that the liberal D.A.’s in California’s major cities give preferential treatment in charging Blacks and Browns under the guise of ‘social justice.’ The liberal judges, likewise, render light sentences under the same mindset. In other words, if the offender is Black or Hispanic, their race and socio-economic status is factored in. If the offender is White, no such factors are considered. Is it any wonder why Blacks in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other large cities run rampant raping and pillaging with no fear of the authorities?

    Californians recently had a chance to remove one of the worst governors in their State’s history, Gavin Newsom. They instead kept Newsom in office which only served to embolden him against every measure of common sense that might actually improve things.

    I saw this trend in crime many years ago, and I had to leave the Golden State for my own safety and sanity. While no State in the Union is paradise, some places are definitely better. It’s only when you get out of California that you fully discover what an insane asylum you had lived in.

    We have a similar law in Florida. Trespassing on a construction site is a felony. Doesn’t matter if you steal or intend to steal, just taking a shortcut through a construction site is felony Trespassing.

    For what it’s worth, I agree with the law. It’s very dangerous to go wandering around a construction site and contractors don’t deserve to get sued or clean up your corpse because you’re an idiot.

    Justice must be dispensed with somehow… But American judges are a very strange breed. Consider this: The vast majority of state superior court judges, and Federal judges at all levels, take a huge pay-cut when they take up the black robes. (Most were successful lawyers making 2-10 times a Federal judge’s salary.) They’re not motivated by money, so one might ask what motivates them.

    For one thing, it’s a sinecure. A job for life, where all of the heavy lifting is done by clerks and interns, and the judge’s primary function is to direct and sign off on their work. (Judge Posner was pretty clear about this in his recent works which were critical of the judiciary.) Great responsibility combined with near-total lack of accountability — this can appeal to a certain personality type. And that same type usually consists of people who just love feeling superior to others.

    And for some, thanks to the mindless reverence of precedence, a Judgeship is an opportunity to “put their stamp on the law.” This is insane — and insanely destructive — and is one of the best possible arguments in favor of the Civil Law over the Common Law.

    And it must be noted that being a judge is usually very boring and mind-numbing. In most Civil Law countries, judges are active investigators and direct the course of litigation, and lawyers are neutral advocates. (This is the so-called “inquisitorial system,” as opposed to the “adversarial system,” where judges are neutral and passive referees, and lawyers direct the course of litigation.) In such countries, it’s actually quite interesting to be a judge. In the US, there’s nothing interesting about it.

    I could go on. Point is, aspiring to become a judge is something that only attracts a certain type of very strange personality. And if there’s one thing that can be said about them, it is that they’re not good people.

    Anyway, the way things stand right now, you could replace all American judges with an AI and get much better justice.

He probably stole nothing because the home owner was shine to his visits and secured all tools etc. If his intention was not to steal then what is he doing there ? Oh I know, he wanted to be a master carpenter !

    What if Arbery had broken into Reed’s house 5 times, sneaked into the bedroom and watched Reed and his wife sleeping. Even the coloured people in the area kept their kids inside when they heard of his continual visits.

    When you examine the other Fed Reed comments they are sheer rubbish Blacks are habitual thieves. Having lived among them I can tell you they rip off shit that is practically worthless. You hang up your underwear to dry and it gets stolen, your smelly sneakers you wash and put in the sun ? Gone, Kids plastic toys ? Ripped off. Old outdoor and worn outdoor mats ? Vanished ! The bell at the front gate ? Torn off. Some fruit trees hanging over your fence ? Chopped up for the unripened fruit. You have to lock everything up, lock it down, lock it out of sight and have sharp eyes and ears 24/7.

    It unlike having your car stolen and that’s it. The constant thefts sets your blood boiling. People will then say “Why did you cap the thief for an old pair of shorts ?” They dont realize this was just one of a hundred provocations. I’ve lived in many other countries and not one of them bemoans some black man who got his just deserts. Most times even his family are glad he is gone because he was pure trouble ! Here, we make a habit of looking into every nook and cranny to prop up these cretins.

    What I find astounding is that minutes after any theft they are broke again . Blacks are idiots, There is no getting around that ! Arbery got what he deserved. There is no doubt in my mind that he would ultimately have one day assaulted and killed someone.

Liberals believe America is rife with Whites running around drawing swastikas and KKK on everything and jumping and beating up blacks and gays because blacks,gays,and jews are constantly hoaxing hate crimes against themselves,and each other. The reason they think that is because our media shouts the lie of “white supremacy” and “white terrorism” and whispers the retraction on thousands of hoaxes a year. Liberals never see the story later turned out to be a hoax,or won’t believe it when it is printed because they are already primed to believe White people are constantly committing violence against non-Whites.

    That is why it is important Smolét get the maximum sentence possible,so that liberals will print the fact that he hoaxed the “hate crime” in the first place,and kvetch that he is receiving his due for it. So that it is constantly reinforced that blacks will sometimes come up with an elaborate, “believable” (to liberals) blood libel against Whites, cry precious black tears about how sad they are and rend their clothes about how “As a black man in America…” and it is ALL FAKE.

    From now on,every time the media reports a “hate crime” it needs to be prefaced with “Jussie Smollett notwithstanding”.

    That is why the prosecution of Jussie Smollett is useful to White people and to the course of justice in the future because THERE ARE NO REAL HATE CRIMES.

    What stetl are you kikes crawling out of?

    He committed 3 crimes.

    Trayvon Martin was suspended for marijuana and when they searched his locker at school he had a lock picking kit and a bag FULL of WOMEN’S jewelry. Was he convicted of burglary? No. What other reason did a nigger have a lockpicking kit and women’s jewelry for though,Rabbi?

    Then,and this is how I know that you’re jewish, in a direct inversion of what you claim,Zimmerman (“creepy ass cracka”) was so suspicious in MARTIN’S mind that when Zimmerman was actually CALLING the cops and not interfering,merely keeping an eye on Martin,Martin lost Zimmerman,circled back, and attacked ZIMMERMAN. Then HE died. Just like Armed Robbery in Georgia. Martin and Armed Robbery BOTH threw the first punch,without which there wouldn’t have BEEN a fight because in both cases, the people who shot the nigger were actually just trying to call the cops on them when they were ATTACKED BY THE NIGGER. THEY started fights that THEY couldn’t win,a characterization based on the actual fact that THEY were the ones who actually DIED,i.e.,lost,rather than Talmudic inversion of facts and pure chutzpah.

    I agree. The DA who recused himself cited the law in his assessment. There is nothing ambiguous about the law as the prosecutor alleged, and the judge was at fault for not ruling on that. His responsibility is to charge the jury on the law. If he did rule it was ambiguous, it seems to me that is an error in law and grounds for appeal. The two sentences are clearly different thoughts and impose different requirements.
    The fact that Arbery was in the property, is more than trespass, it is illegal entry.
    Going after the DA and assistant, both of whom recused themselves, show this is a political charge, not a criminal one.
    Do I think the 3 people in the Arbery case were foolish? Absolutely. Since Michael Brown, Whites are fools to come anywhere near Blacks.

    The actions of the McMichaels — chasing after a suspected trespasser on someone else’s property to make an armed citizen’s arrest — might have been unwise, but they hardly constituted “malice murder” worthy of guaranteed life without parole.

    They may have been liable for creating a situation where an armed confrontation could end badly, but in a sane world that’s manslaughter at worst.

    The biggest mistake McMichael made was forgetting that he was no longer a cop and no longer indemnified by his department — and engaging in a pursuit for which he could be held personally liable.

    That being said, what the court did to Bryan was absolutely obscene. The unarmed Bryan was found guilty of murder simply for being present and taking a cell phone video of the incident.

    The Arbery case was not cut-and-dried for either side. However it was clear that the defendants were crucified by the court and given the maximum becuse they were white and the deceased was black.

    My dear Dr. X (and also commenter Jimmy le Blanc), the word revolver is the British blanket term for “pistol” regardless of a pistol’s mechanism.

    Then Dorothy Rabinowitz published a long article in Harpers on the Kelly Michails outrage and travesty entitled “From the Mouths of Babes to a Jail Cell. Michaels was sentenced to 48-years in prisons and spent 5-years in solitary confinement, I assume, for her protection, before her convictions were overturned.

He protected people in his neighborhood. Trayboon Martin did not even live in that neighborhood.

    Haven’t spent much time around blacks,have you? If they did that,Armed Robbery would not have been “scared shitless” he just would have attacked them and tried to steal the camera rather than the gun.

    “Or they could have set some sort of primitive trap like an open container of paint perched above a door left ajar. The sight of Arbery running away with white paint all over him would be priceless.”

    Yeah,that would have been hilarious. In Scooby Doo. In some states in America,setting a trap for people that can result in any bodily harm whatsoever, especially to a black, is an automatic enhanced attempted murder since the fact that you planned it “with malice aforethought” becomes basically a foregone conclusion at the point that you admit you constructed a trap that you intended for a specific individual to trigger.

    According to news reports, the first two prosecutors who looked at the case refused to prosecute (i.e., they agreed with ignorant old me). The third time was the charm. In defense of the jury, the judge did not allow evidence that the shootee was a deranged criminal, which I thought would be highly relevant but the judge considered highly prejudicial.

    It often happens that prosecutors hand cases to others, for any of a thousand reasons.
    Any acts or information that is not relative to the actual actions of the case is ALWAYS held out of the evidence and not presented to the jury. It is only relevant at sentencing.
    How would the fact that he had stolen before be relevant, as the defendants had no knowledge of it and it could not have affected their actions?

    In the British Army there is a clear definition between a Revolver (which uses a revolving cylinder that only holds 6 rounds) and a PISTOL which uses a magazine with as many as 15 + rounds and is semi automatic. I believe the standard sidearm in the British Army is the semi-automatic PISTOL which is referred to as such rather than as a REVOLVER.

    The mechanisms of both are completely different as are the methods of use, reloading, cleaning and even aiming. What you assert is like classifying a parang and Sabre as similar.

    Then again maybe he did know who Aubrey was, which would put a whole new perspective on the events of that fatal day.

    My issue is that they should not have got involved.
    If they had witnessed a robbery, a rape or an assault with a weapon, then a citizens arrest is warranted although you are still pushing it to have a firearm and to chase them for blocks. A trespass even with a “potential” theft of property, they have no business interfering.
    It screams of vigilantism. The fact that they were white and he was black, oy vey. Three of them and one of him, what kind of outcome can you expect.
    Like Chauvin and kneeling on someone for 20 minutes, it is just abysmal stupidity.
    They recognised him from the neighbourhood and could have identified him to the police. Whereupon the police would have done nothing as no crime was witnessed.
    I hope that this will send the message, “Mind your own business”. Unless you are witnessing a violent crime, take a photo and move on. If, like in the NY subway, a man had been actually abusing a woman they probably would have turned away and not interfered.
    Chauvin sent a huge message to the police, do your job and don’t be a bully.
    McMichaels message is “Don’t wave firearms around to threaten people. The only time you may use a firearm is if your life is in danger from assault.”

    Those were shameful injustices, travesties of justice. Decent, harmless citizens like Gerald Amirault and his family—there were many, many others—were convicted and given double-digit sentences on charges no sensible person could credit, and for which there was no physical evidence.

    Mr. Derbyshire:

    How open would you be to the possibility that the true story of the “the 2011 Penn State scandal that led to the disgrace of football coach Joe Paterno and the conviction of his former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, for child sexual abuse” might be another, more recent example of no less than what you have described and inveighed against here?[1]

    A compelling case for just that has been made by both Mark Pendegrast[2] and by John Ziegler[3]. Are you familiar with any of their work in this area? Have you commented at all on the topic of the Penn State Affair? I do not recall your ever having done so, and I am unable to find anything from you on it via web search.

    Criminal justice, particularly in matters involving pedohysteria, is a key area in which I have found your views to be refreshingly independent, considered, nuanced, conscientious, reasonable and responsible.

    While this site began as a defense of Paterno, after investigating the case for two years and interviewing Sandusky twice in prison, it became obvious that Sandusky himself has also been done a horrendous injustice. While this revelation will be shocking to people who have not followed the case closely, if you look at the evidence here with an open mind, there is little doubt that you will come to the same conclusion.

    Second, Potter absolutely deserves prison time for negligent homicide or manslaughter.

    The bright legal minds on the Rekeita Law podcast see Potter as going free. Given the threats to her fellow officers, by a suspect fleeing a warrant, and the fear she saw in her husky, strong police supervisor, Potter was justified in either tasing or shooting Daunte Wright. Making a mistake in terms of weapon selection when either weapon can be employed in that situation is not a criminal act. The jury is unlikely to hammer a rare street cop with no complaints in a 26-year career.
