Two Hate Crimes, No Waiting

A Typical Weekend In Baltimore, Now With Extra Excuses

image

This Is For Trayvon!

of course. what else would we expect?

I thought at first that this was the same story, just told from different angles. But apparently Bethesda MD is not Baltimore MD, but the tales are remarkably similar. Gangs of black teens (but they were unarmed!!!) siccing themselves on random white people. Thank God at least one is being labeled a hate crime.

Assault, Robbery Investigated as Hate Crime

Metropolitan Police are investigating a Saturday morning assault and robbery as a hate crime.

Police said a 28-year-old man from Bethesda, Md., was attacked in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW in D.C.’s Adams Morgan neighborhood. The victim said he was approached by three black men who kicked and punched him to the ground around 1:20 a.m.

According the victim, one of the attackers yelled, “This is for Trayvon,” during the assault. The victim suffered lacerations to the face from the attack.

Police said the suspects took the man’s wallet and iPhone. The police report lists the incident as “robbery force violence, hate bias incident.”

Two of the men threw the victim to the ground and kicked him, Alali said. The three perpetrators then took the victim’s iPhone and wallet and fled.

The victim suffered minor injuries and declined medical attention, authorities said.

“There is no pattern in these types of crimes. These attacks are outrageous; we are doing everything in our power to see that they certainly don’t occur. If they do occur, we are going to aggressively investigate them and bring people to justice,” [police spokesman] Alali said.



A brutal attack in the heart of Little Italy. Police say a man walking home from work at an area restaurant is attacked and severely beaten near Bank and Exeter Streets by a mob of at least ten teens.

Four of the alleged attackers, three of them minors, have been arrested and charged.

It’s very upsetting because you feel suspect now. Now you see a group of kids, children, and you have to worry if they’re not going to pounce on you,” said Giovanna Blattermann, neighbor.

The assault happened in front of Giovanna Blattermann’s house. She’s also watched video of the attack–captured by her neighbors surveillance camera.

While the suspects took the man’s phone, Blattermann says that’s not what they were after.

“They beat this boy. He got up, he’d run, they beat him. He got up, he’d run, they beat him. He got up, he’d run, they beat him,” said Blattermann.

The suspects range in age from 16 to 19, but police say because of the brutality of the crime, the minors aren’t being charged lightly.

“The fact that they broke this gentleman’s jaw, the decision was made and they are going to be charged as adults,” said Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk, Baltimore City Police.

Blattermann and other neighbors believe the same mob has robbed other residents. they’re now banding together to protect their neighborhood.

Just another weekend here in Black Run America. The second story, of a more brutal attack, with a larger crowd of violent punks, the one where the police actually have suspects in custody, ISN’T being labeled a hate crime.

thick of lip, broad of nose, kinky hair yes one of THOSE

A never ending story and no sign of relief.

Damn those early slave traders.  Look what they left the world with.
And so called justice systems are not about justice. I haven’t a clue what they’re about, but justice does not enter into it.  If it did, the scum who do bad things would suffer the very same they inflict on their victims.  In some cases, even if they fail to carry out the plan, I see nothing immoral or wrong in deleting them anyway.  They have no value, they are wasters of resources and should be eliminated with little cost to the law abiding majority.  But no.  We must never go down that road we are told.  Why the hell not?  Because we must be civilized or at least appear to be more civilized then the scum that infest our cities.
Well hell, I’m not in any hurry to be that civil to creeps like these.  Besides, I’m a damn viking at heart and vengeful one at that.  However, there are some folks who were intended victims but were saved by chance, and who say they feel sorry for the vermin who wanted to kill them.
The intended victim in this case is a really stupid white girl.  They wanted to cut her head off but got lost, crashed their car, then went looking for her flashing her photo around her area. Doh.  And she feels sorry for them?  Wonder what she’d have felt had they got their filthy black hands on her. I wonder if she’d be so forgiving then.

Oh btw ....  the powers that be here claim that crime is down by a large margin.
Really?
Wanna tell that to victims and potential victims?

Men plotted to behead me with samurai sword: Joss Stone speaks for first time about murder bid...

· 26-year-old star admits she is baffled by what inspired men to target her
· ‘There was a big part of me that felt sorry for their mums’ she said
British soul singer Joss Stone has spoken for the first time about the two men jailed for planning to kidnap and behead her – and revealed, remarkably, that she ‘feels sorry’ for them.

The men were apprehended, and their plot revealed, only when they crashed their car then began asking Joss’s neighbours where she lived while brandishing a picture of the star.

In an exclusive interview with today’s Mail on Sunday Event Magazine, the 26-year-old star also admits that she is still baffled by what inspired the men – who plotted to kill her with a samurai sword and steal her fortune – to target her.

Laughing thugs poured acid over mother as she walked her six-year-old twins home from school

· Liquid was sprayed at mother outside an east London primary school

· She suffered 16 per cent chemical burns to her face and body

· Some of the acid burnt her son’s satchel and another mother was injured

· It is thought Yannick Ntesa, 25, sprayed the acid and made his getaway in a BMW with Abdul Motin, 28, and Ahad Miah, 31

By TARA BRADY

A gang laughed as they doused a woman in acid while she walked her six-year-old twins home from school have been jailed for a total of 44 years.

The attackers was heard laughing as the noxious liquid was sprayed at the screaming mother in front of her two boys outside Upton Cross Primary School in Upton Park, east London.

Speaking after the attack the woman, who suffered horrendous burns to her face and body, said: ‘I saw a man approach me who was carrying something in a bottle.

‘He threw it over me and after a few seconds it started burning. I was crying: “Please help me! Please help me!“‘

It is thought Yannick Ntesa, 25, sprayed the acid and made his getaway in a red BMW with
Abdul Motin, 28, and 31-year-old Ahad Miah.

The 44-year-old mother, from Plaistow, fled to a neighbour’s home where water was poured over her burning clothes.

Some of the acid burnt her son’s satchel while another mother also suffered minor injuries in the attack on March 24, 2011.

The victim was rushed to the Royal London Hospital and later transferred to a specialist burns unit in Chelmsford, Essex.

No More Gay Penalty

Only 60 years after he was driven to suicide ...

Alan Turing, credited with ending WWII, to be given posthumous pardon

The “Father of Computer Science” — who played a key role in defeating the Nazis during World War II — is set to be posthumously pardoned of his gross indecency conviction, according to a new report.

WWII hero Alan Turing is widely credited with hastening the falls of the Nazis because he cracked the German Enigma, which allowed U-boats to securely communicate in the North Atlantic.

Turing, who was gay, was later convicted under anti-homosexuality legislation and sentenced to chemical castration.

In 1954, Turing, 41, was found dead of cyanide poisoning — a half-eaten apple sitting on his bedside table.

The government signalled on Friday that it is prepared to support a backbench bill that would pardon Turing, who died from cyanide poisoning at the age of 41 in 1954 after he was subjected to “chemical castration”.

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, a government whip, told peers that the government would table the third reading of the Alan Turing (statutory pardon) bill at the end of October if no amendments are made. “If nobody tables an amendment to this bill, its supporters can be assured that it will have speedy passage to the House of Commons,” Ahmad said.

The announcement marks a change of heart by the government, which declined last year to grant pardons to the 49,000 gay men, now dead, who were convicted under the 1885 Criminal Law Amendment Act. They include Oscar Wilde.

Turing broke German ciphers using the bombe method, which allowed the code-breakers to crack the German Enigma code. His colleague Tommy Flowers built the Colossus computer. [Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, a government whip] Ahmad described Turing as “one of the fathers, if not the father, of computer science”.

[ Liberal Democrat peer Lord ]Sharkey has campaigned for a pardon after being taught mathematics at Manchester University in the 1960s by Robin Gandy, Turing’s only doctoral student, who became a close friend and was the executor of his will.

Sharkey said: “As I think everybody knows, he was convicted in 1952 of gross indecency and sentenced to chemical castration. He committed suicide two years later. The government know that Turing was a hero and a very great man. They acknowledge that he was cruelly treated. They must have seen the esteem in which he is held here and around the world.”

[long retired Bletchley Park aide] Lady Trumpington told peers: “The block I worked in was devoted to German naval codes. Only once was I asked to deliver a paper to Alan Turing, so … I cannot claim that I knew him. However, I am certain that but for his work we would have lost the war through starvation.”

If I recall my ancient computer history properly, Turing was also adept at riding a unicycle and playing the accordion. No word yet on whether the UK has finally decriminalized those activities as well.

And headlines being what they are, obviously Turing didn’t end the war all by himself. But he did break the code, and that was invaluable in ending the Blitz ... although it was Churchill’s decision to let Coventry be bombed.

link to the Alan Turing story

Minor Update: a somewhat contrary view from Max Hastings: these were the laws of the time, so by what right does today’s UK go about pardoning or apologizing for past wrongs? Or, as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton might put it, “At this point, what difference does it make?” Not that she, or her husband for that matter, are any strangers themselves to meaningless apologies.

Well, I suppose the point is that it’s never too late to try and do the right thing. Granted, 60 years after the guy is dead is rather pushing the envelope.

The secondary argument, “what about the other 49,000 homosexuals also convicted?” may be moot; the way I read the Guardian article it seems as if all of them could be cleared of their long-ago offenses.

And when you come right down to it, the Allies were only too happy to forgive a bunch of Nazis and take them on board. Almost all of the early brains in NASA had earlier worked for Adolf (eg SS Major Werner von Braun). Revisionism can downplay their involvement, but come on. They didn’t NOT know. So what’s a little power bottom action compared to that? What they ought to be apologizing for is not standing up for their man, who saved the lives of millions by shortening the war by a year or more. But not one of them did; not a single string was pulled for Turing. That’s abhorrent. Things should have been swept under the rug as they were done for so many others with far more “dirt” in their dustpans.

As Always, Reject The Left’s Meme

Thoughts on the Martin/Zimmerman case: whatever else it was, mostly it was a media ...

Failure, With Deplorable Consequences

The truth WILL out, but is anyone willing to notice? Cathy Young at Reason.com/Real Clear Politics pens a 5 minute read worth clicking on.

What a surprise ... another false meme from the left, given out by their infinite number of source points around the world. A lie told often enough to be assumed true, especially by those willfully blind to any truth other than the party’s daily talking points.

This narrative has transformed Zimmerman, a man of racially mixed heritage that included white, Hispanic and black roots (a grandmother who helped raise him had an Afro-Peruvian father), into an honorary white male steeped in white privilege. It has cast him as a virulent racist even though he once had a black business partner, mentored African-American kids, lived in a neighborhood about 20 percent black, and participated in complaints about a white police lieutenant’s son getting away with beating a homeless black man.

...

Liberals and disenchanted conservatives who decry fact-free ideological narratives, true-believer hysteria and willful reality-denial on the right should take a good look at the left’s Zimmerman Derangement Syndrome. Some far-right blogs have trafficked in bad information of their own, using Martin’s marijuana use, past fighting, and teenage social-media bluster to portray him as a thug and even spinning bizarre theories about his possible drug dealing the night of his death. Yet this instance, their misdeeds are dwarfed by far more mainstream liberal “faux news” (meticulously documented on a dissenting left-of-center blog, The Daily Howler). As a fiction, Zimmerman the white supremacist rivals Obama the Kenyan-born commie Muslim.

Ok, maybe she’s putting some left-tilting spin of her own in here, because I for one wouldn’t call any of that “bizarre theories” when it’s obvious fact based on the kid’s own Tweets, liver condition, and school history. But that’s the kind of sop you have to throw out sometimes to be “centrist”, and it doesn’t detract from her overall condemnation of the puppet media, who have done the nation a grave disservice here, for no other reason than getting that Kenyan muslim anarchist commie re-elected by spiking racial angst and tribalism.

where will the deer go

There’s a great big steam shovel sitting by the edge of the little pocket of woods here down at the end of Village Road. For years and years we’ve heard the rumors how that bit of land was going to be sold and additional apartments or condos built there. Every year or two it’s been something different. A McMansion. A small hi-rise. An office park. Townhouse block. Condos. Low income garden apartments and a bus stop for the local no-cost county bus. On and on. For a decade. And somehow nothing ever gets built. But it looks like that is about to change.

You know how it is in NJ: if there are 2 trees and a bush, there are 3 deer living behind them. Until somebody sells that little bit of land, and a builder comes in and puts up a dozen homes on it. And that’s what finally happened here.

It’s an acre or two of scrub woods on a steep bit of hill just feet from the second busiest east-west highway in the state, and the edge of that land sits right on the entrance ramp to the highway. Not what I’d call a premier location. And it’s right across the street from the swampy boggy end of the park’s pond. I wouldn’t even call it a fair location. It’s suckville. But maybe that made it really cheap land. What do I know?

image

Whatever. From what I gather, yet another set of plans have been submitted and approved. This time it’s going to be a smaller build, a single row of garden apartments facing Village Road. At least that’s what the drawing looks like. 8 or 10 units, instead of the 24+ from the last plan. Will it be low-income housing? HUD? Will all these units be immediately occupied by the dozens of Mexicans who all work at the diner at the top of the hill and rent apartments down on the edge of town, and all ride the same bicycle up and down our road all day and all night going back and forth? Who can say. We’ll have to wait and see.

I almost feel sorry for the construction workers who are going to cut down this acre or two; these woods have been home to so many deer for so long, that it’s pretty much a guarantee that anyone clearing land there is going to get Lyme Disease.

And the deer? Bah. Who cares. They’ll probably run out on the highway and get killed. Just like any other day around here actually.

they don’t belong anywhere except 6 feet under. the good ones are already dead.

I have many times suggested, no I had wished, that the Germans had been able to finish the good work of riding the world of the vermin we know today as Gypsies.  I don’t think back then the words Travellers or Roma was in use. Or if it was not much. Roma probably. But the bottom line is a rose by any other name fits the bill.

If there’s any group that brings on the hate so easily by what they do on a daily basis, it’s these lice in human form.  Of course, they aren’t alone in problem causing or working hard to make folks despise them. I don’t need to name them now, you all know who they are.  But for the moment, the issue is this one group of sub humans.  That they even have those who would defend them is an outrage and I’d be happy to see them deleted as well.
What’s this all about?

Well here’s the latest.

Killed because he didn’t have enough valuables: Gipsy burglars jailed for life after bludgeoning farmer to death with a crowbar

Pensioner Llywelyn Thomas was beaten to death in Cambridgeshire

He was home watching TV when burglars broke in

Floors and doorways were covered in the retired farmer’s blood

By John Stevens

Frankie Parker, 26, and his uncle, Gary Smith, 21, struck pensioner Llywelyn Thomas over the head and stamped on him during a raid at his £500,000 home in Chittering, Cambridgeshire.

The pair, who were staying at a nearby travellers’ site, fled with ornamental eggs, a wallet, watches and a Rover 75, part of Mr Thomas’s classic car collection.

Yesterday Smith laughed and smirked throughout proceedings as he and Parker were jailed for life at Cambridge Crown Court.

image

During the 17-day trial the court heard that the men – described by police as career criminals – could not resist boasting to other members of the travelling community about what they had done.

Witnesses said Parker bragged about ‘smashing an old man’s face right in’ and leaving it ‘twisted’.

The pair had forced their way in to the converted chapel as widower Mr Thomas watched Strictly Come Dancing on December 17, 2011.

They restrained him and searched his home for valuables.

Afterwards they ‘set about a savage beating’, said Karim Khalil, prosecuting.

‘He did not stand a chance.’ The attack was so ferocious he would have died within minutes.  The court heard that Parker had been annoyed at getting ‘a pretty poor return’ on the burglary and launched the horrific attack.

Bernard Tetlow QC, defending Smith, said Parker was trying to feed a £70-a-day amphetamines habit that made him aggressive.

Parker will serve at least 24 years after being found guilty of murder.  Smith was given a minimum of 22 years for the same offence.

Passing sentence, Mr Justice Singh said Parker and Smith had ‘shared an intention to kill’ and had shown Mr Thomas no mercy.

During the trial it emerged that Smith had been jailed for five years for a similar attack on a 73-year-old woman during a burglary at her home in Kilham, East Yorkshire, in February last year.

He had battered the pensioner with her own walking stick before stealing her car.

gypsie scum source

One of the rotten low life bastards had already committed a similar crime, he had already shown what he was capable of, serves only five years and kills this old helpless old man. Yeah. Jail really put the frighteners on him.  And as always, the bastard is out and free to do it all again.

There is no DP here because membership in the EU forbids death as punishment.  It is seen as cruel.  Well fuck me we don’t wanna be cruel. We want to kiss the bad folks and hug them and tell them we understand why they are so rotten and miserable and disgustingly loathsome. Truth to tell, even minus the EU,
I really doubt the Brits would bring back the death penalty, even tho many here want it.  That’s how strong the left lobby is. Now if it were possible to delete the left entirely ..... and lets not play word games.  Delete to me has one meaning and one alone.  And since I wholeheartedly approve and applaud the Nazi solution to the gypo problem, I guess you know what that word is.  By whatever name they go by and wherever they are from, they and their libtard enablers should all be eliminated to make Europe and the world a better place.  They do not belong.  Anywhere.

Attention Drew…

… and anybody else who’s interested:

Drew, I don’t worry about the summer rerun season—haven’t watched TV for almost two decades. But I do have this magic card that allows me to checkout and watch all kinds of movies and TV shows. It’s called a library card. I don’t even have to go to the library to browse anymore. The library catalog is online now. All that’s required is login, do a search, and if your library has what your looking for, reserve it. I’ve set my home library up as the closest branch so the library system sends my reserved items to my local branch and sends me an email notifying me that it’s ready for pickup. Easy.

If that isn’t easy enough, there’s an App for Macs called Library Books. Here’s a screen-shot:

image

It sits right at the top of my desktop, turns green when items are ready for pickup, turns red when items are due. Click on it and it turns blue and lists your items out, what is ready for pickup, etc. Don’t know if Windows has something similar. Did I mention that Library Books was free? I said was because now it’s like $1.99 in the Mac App Store but I’ve refused to upgrade.

How to avoid drone strikes

With Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster over drone strikes ended I thought it would be appropriate to inform BMEWSers and BMEWSettes of several ways to avoid drone strikes. This is necessary because I don’t believe anything this misAdministration says.

1. Join the church where Al Sharpton is a preacher. No one knows where it is.
2. If you can’t find it, join the church Obama frequents.
3. If you can’t find that: register as a Republican Senate candidate from New York, New Jersey, or California.
4. Get a federal “green energy” loan, then declare bankruptcy. The U.S. government will cover for you.
5. Proclaim you are a victim of black-on-black crime. The media will render you invisible.
6. Come out as a black conservative. The media will render you unrecognizable.
7. If you are a woman: confess that Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy once propositioned you.
8. Hide in the back of a Massachusetts senator’s submerged car. It will buy you at least a few hours.
9. Become a member of Obama’s Job Council.
10. Insert yourself in the next 2,000-page bill.
11. Follow Jesse Jackson to an honest day’s work.
12. Get friendly with Sandra Fluke. Nobody has ever been able to find any of those guys.
13. Say “Hi, I’m Jon Huntsman and I’m still running for president.”
14. Pretend you’re a salad; at least the First Lady won’t spot you.
15. Never walk in New York holding a 16oz Styrofoam soda cup.
16. Never drink from a bottle of water in front of a camera. This will put you in the media spotlight 24/7 for days.
17. Get in line at the DMV or another government office; by the time you emerge, drones will be obsolete.
18. Impersonate an American taxpayer.
19. Hide in plain sight in Benghazi; it makes a lot of difference.
20. Camp out at Obama’s shooting range; no one is ever there.
21. Stay where Obama keeps his college transcripts, U.S. passport records, or financial records. You will never be disclosed.
22. Set up in one of Chicago’s highest murder-rate zones. A truckload of fighters with RPGs will go undetected.
23. Hold a sign, preferably bilingual, declaring a “Drone-Free Zone.”

Tourist Alert

l’attaque des chats sauvages

Fwench Pussies Really ARE Out To Get You



Visitors to one of France’s most beautiful tourist areas were today warned to be on their guard after a pack of feral cats launched an attack on a young woman.

About six cats pounced on the unnamed dog owner as she walked her poodle in the city of Belfort, in the popular Franche-Comte region, on the Swiss border, dragging her to the ground and mauling her.

image

She was bitten repeatedly and left with a torn artery which could have proved fatal, while the dog was also badly hurt.

It is thought that particularly high summer temperatures may have made the cats far more aggressive than usual.

Josette Galliot, the mother of the 31-year-old victim, said: “They jumped on her and managed to knock her over.

“The feral cats bit her on the leg and on her arms. They even pierced an artery,” Mrs Galliot told l’Est Republicain newspaper, adding that her daughter had been “living a nightmare” since Sunday’s attack.

The woman was rushed to hospital where she received treatment for her wounds, and a number of injections including one against rabies. The poodle was treated at a nearby veterinary clinic.

A local police spokesman meanwhile suggested that the attack was “very unusual” and therefore “a cause of great concern”.

Just Buggin

My mother had to get new storm doors for her house. The old ones wore out and split from ice damage over the winter. She had one of the home improvement places install storm doors by Larson. They’re really nice doors, very high quality. The model has a neat feature that let’s you pull down the top glass pane and a screen rolls into place from above. So no having to swap panels in the Spring and Fall. Cool and breezy.

But there is a small downside. The gap behind that window is the exact perfect size to capture Japanese Beetles. They land on the glass, lose traction, and slide down into the slot. Which is big enough to hold them, but not big enough to let them crawl out. So they die in there. By the hundreds. All lined up. Lower the glass panel a bit, and all the dead beetles fall out. And give the front steps a nice crunchy coating.

image

I hope that slot isn’t going to ice up come winter. OTOH, who needs to use the screen in February?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
