Baltimore Police Charged

Freddie Gray death ruled a homicide, charges filed against 6 officers

image



Prosecutors charged six Baltimore police officers Friday with crimes ranging from murder to assault in the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man whose death last month of injuries apparently suffered in police custody touched off peaceful protests that degenerated into a night of rioting, looting and chaos Monday.

State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, speaking at a Friday news conference, blasted the six police involved in Gray’s arrest on April 12, during which he suffered a broken neck that proved fatal a week later. Mosby said the police had no basis for arresting Gray, who police said avoided eye contact and was carrying a switchblade. One police officer, identified as Caesar Goodson, 45, was charged with second-degree murder, while others were charged with crimes including manslaughter and assault.

“No one is above the law,” declared Mosby, who said she comes from three generations of law enforcement and has been on the job for four months. Her husband is Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby, who has spoken out about the riots and anger in the city’s African-American community.

Goodson was charged with second-degree depraved-heart murder, involuntary manslaughter, second-degree negligent assault, as well as other charges including failure to render aid and misconduct in office.

- Police Officer William Porter was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

- Police Lt. Brian Rice was charged with involuntary manslaughter and second-degree assault.

- Police Officer Alicia White was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second degree assault and misconduct in office.

- Police officers Edward Nero and Garrett Miller were charged with multiple counts of assault, false imprisonment and misconduct in office.

The Baltimore police officers union issued a statement before Mosby’s announcement, saying the six officers are not responsible for Gray’s death.

“As tragic as this situation is, none of the officers involved are responsible for the death of Mr. Gray,” Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3 President Gene Ryan said

“Depraved heart murder”?? WTF? And in the 2nd degree. How is that even possible? AND involuntary manslaughter, AND second-degree negligent assault, in case the first charges don’t stick. WTF. Pick one. I don’t think it’s legal to charge anyone with all the Baskin-Robbins flavors, unless they can show how each one is a separate situation.

CNN has a specific breakdown of which officer was charged with what offense, which shows one officer facing 4 different charges of causing someone’s death. Sounds like a big load of kangaroo krap to me, but maybe this is how state attorneys do things. Especially state attorneys married to outspoken members of the city council. My, what a coincidence.

I really, really want to see pictures of the officers involved.

JLENS. Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System

image

Aw Hell it even has a big vein on the side



The U.S. military is testing a new cruise-missile defense system by launching a blimp-like airship near Baltimore.

Wednesday’s event at Aberdeen Proving Ground gives the region its first look at JLENS, short for Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System.

By February, two helium-filled airships will be tethered to concrete pads four miles apart, floating 10,000 feet high for the three-year test.

Radar on one ship will scan in a 340-mile radius, roughly from Norfolk, Virginia, to upstate New York. Controllers on the ground will use radar on the other vehicle to pinpoint targets. The airships won’t carry weapons.

The military says the balloons also won’t carry cameras. But privacy advocates are leery of the system’s ability to constantly monitor moving objects, including cars on the ground.

image

JLENS, which is short for Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System, is a system of two aerostats, or tethered airships, that float 10,000 feet in the air. The helium filled aerostats, each nearly as long as a football field, carry powerful radars that can protect a territory roughly the size of Texas from airborne threats.

JLENS provides 360-degrees of defensive radar coverage and can detect and track objects like missiles, and manned and unmanned aircraft from up to 340 miles away. JLENS can also remain aloft and operational for up to 30 days at a time. This potent combination of persistence and capability give defenders more time and more distance to:

Identify potential threats
Make critical decisions
Conduct crucial notifications

JLENS allows the military to safeguard hundreds of miles of territory at a fraction of the cost of fixed wing aircraft, and it can integrate with defensive systems including:

Patriot
Standard Missile 6
Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile
National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System

One JLENS system, known as an orbit, can provide the same 24/7 coverage for a 30-day period that 4-5 fixed wing surveillance aircraft (AWACS, JSTARS or E-2C) can provide.

image image

An affordable, elevated, persistent over-the-horizon sensor system, JLENS uses a powerful integrated radar system mounted on two aerostats to detect, track and target a variety of threats. This capability better enables commanders to defend against threats, including hostile cruise missiles; low-flying manned and unmanned aircraft; and moving surface vehicles such as boats, mobile missile launchers, automobiles, trucks and tanks. JLENS also provides ascent phase detection of tactical ballistic missiles and large-caliber rockets.


“Over the horizon” is right; from 10,000 feet up, the line of sight horizon is 122 miles away (a 244 mile circle). For a direct 340 mile horizon, you’d have to be 77,000 feet up, nearly in space.

So what we have here, now flying or soon to be flying over eastern America, is a flying thing with a design that looks borrowed from toilet graffiti that can - if given enough computer power and if the diagrams above can be believed - can track any (every???) moving object as small as an RPG, on land, sea, or air, at any given speed (tanks and trucks aren’t exactly supersonic) in an area from Kingston Ontario in the North to the North Carolina’s Outer Banks in the South, to Columbus Ohio in the West to Cape Cod MA in the Northeast to the edge of TN in the Southwest to a long long way out to sea in the east.

But not to worry; the balloons aren’t armed. No, they’re merely linked in to any and every missile system that we have, along with all the combat ships and aircraft up and down the coast. And all the troops on the ground. And I’m certain that our over-reaching, unitized, universal, all-powerful, unlimited, law-abiding, limited, Constitution, “take care of our friends and punish our enemies”, nearly tyrannical government would never even consider linking in DHS, the FBI or all the police departments, nor ever condone using the tracking abilities inherent in this years long “test” for any “civilian” “law enforcement” operation. It’s just a coincidence that, “for your own good” - to protect us against terrorists and Chinese cruise missiles - that the government also just happens to now have a gun pointed at your head every minute of the day. If they feel like it. And you’ll never know. Probably damn near half the population under that circle. At least a third of us.

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake



Additional equipment could offer commanders extensive communications relay capabilities, or even area surveillance of the ground. The JLENS program reportedly deployed a smaller 15 meter aerostat to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In late November 2003, the Army announced its intention to redeploy the Rapid Aerostat Initial Deployment (RAID) force protection aerostat from Afghanistan to Iraq. RAID, adapted out of JLENS via the Army Rapid Equipping Force, became its own program, involving both flying aerostats and fixed-tower configurations like GBOSS.

A privately-funded January 2013 test mounted similar equipment on a JLENS system, successfully demonstrating its ability to monitor humans walking near roads.

a national food policy?

Shades of Stalin!

How we produce and consume food has a bigger impact on Americans’ well-being than any other human activity. The food industry is the largest sector of our economy; food touches everything from our health to the environment, climate change, economic inequality and the federal budget. Yet we have no food policy — no plan or agreed-upon principles — for managing American agriculture or the food system as a whole.

That must change.

I’d have to disagree. Why we allow people who think like this to continue drawing breath? THAT must change. Leave us alone!

If you like what ObamaCare is doing for health insurance, you will love what a federal program to control what we eat does for food, as it takes into account “the environment, climate change, economic inequality” et cetera ad nauseam.

A federal stranglehold on how food is produced, distributed, and consumed will allegedly guarantee the following:

● All Americans have access to healthful food;
● Farm policies are designed to support our public health and environmental objectives;
● Our food supply is free of toxic bacteria, chemicals and drugs;
● Production and marketing of our food are done transparently;
● The food industry pays a fair wage to those it employs;
● Food marketing sets children up for healthful lives by instilling in them a habit of eating real food;
● Animals are treated with compassion and attention to their well-being;
● The food system’s carbon footprint is reduced, and the amount of carbon sequestered on farmland is increased;
● The food system is sufficiently resilient to withstand the effects of climate change.

In this time of illegal immigration I think first we have to define ‘All Americans’. And what is this ‘our public health and evironmental objectives’? Define ‘toxic’? I don’t see people keeling over dead-right-there (DRT) from bad stuff in the food. As for the production of our food, it is already transparent. Anybody can take a tour of a slaughter house or processing center. I just bought 1/4 of a cow. 170# of various cuts, hamburger, tongue, liver, etc. I’ve taken two tours of the farm. I’ve been behind the scenes at the local butcher’s. I’ve been to pig farms, chicken farms. It’s already transparent. All you have to do is request a tour and go. As for the marketing? By definition that’s transparent. You see it on TV, you hear it on radio.

Food industry already pays a fair wage.

“…a habit of eating real food.” I’m certain I’ve never eaten imaginary food. Last time I saw that trick was in the movie ‘Hook’.

Animals are already treated with compassion.

Carbon footprint? I still can’t get anyone to show me a ‘carbon footprint.’

Climate has always changed. The ‘food system’ — whatever that means — has always survived.

This has been tried before, and it worked wonderfully, according to Walter Duranty of the New York Times. Joseph Stalin used it suppress resistance to collectivization in the Ukraine. This was called the Holodomor.

Only those with a vested interest in the status quo would argue against creating public policies with these goals.

If you like going to the supermarket and seeing the shelves covered in food that you want to eat at a price you can afford, you have a vested interest in the status quo. If you want to stand in line for a bowl of gluten-free government gruel, don’t bother putting up any resistance to endlessly encroaching liberalism.

And So The Mill Churns

Does it now grind out truth, or just more rumor?

UPDATE: Now he doesn’t! “No torn eye socket” according to CNN here. But he did have a swollen face. And around we go again.


image


You did see yesterday’s report that officer Wilson had an orbital floor fracture, right? That means something hit him so hard it broke his face bones below his eye. Not that we were shown his bruised up picture or his X-ray.

Proceed with caution, but follow this link.

“MO” Ferguson: a bit of steyn

Relative to Ferguson, Mark Steyn ruminates on modern policing in this “up armored” age

MRAPS, machine guns, body armor, but no dash cams.

Seriously? Sounds like a recipe for uncontrolled thuggery.

It’s starting to look like a certain PD has gone in the wrong direction. And it has plenty of company around the nation.

They ain’t the boss of us.

And they’d damn better remember that.

This nice map from the NY Times ties in nicely too. Shows who got all the mil-surp stuff.

Same story: Oh, this is just dandy: preliminary autopsy report shows Michael Brown [coroner’s drawing] was hit at least 6 times, but all the bullets came at him from the front. None hit him from behind. At least two of the shots are said to be multiple entry and exit wounds (eg bullet hits hand, comes out forearm, goes in somewhere else). Looks like the feds are going to do a confirmation autopsy as well. Thanks for the picture and those 2 bits of information. Most of the rest of the article is crap and supposition IMO.

PS - look at the autopsy picture, then look at your own right arm. Now try and figure out what kind of body position you have to be in, “with your hands over your head” or perhaps “running away”, to take 4 bullets to the inside of your arm. I’m coming up with a blank myself, although palms forward elbows out, hands extended forward about a foot and a half while in front of or just above the head might work.

Now WTF

Robbery ‘not related’ to why Michael Brown was initially stopped by Ferguson police

What? What????

The unarmed black teen whose fatal shooting by police in a St. Louis suburb sparked violent protests was a suspect in a robbery moments before, but the deadly encounter was not sparked by the robbery, the city’s police chief said Friday.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson earlier Friday released documents alleging 18-year-old Michael Brown had been suspected of stealing a $48.99 box of cigars from a convenience store in a “strong-arm” robbery shortly before he was killed.

Jackson said at an afternoon press conference that Brown and his friend were stopped Saturday “because they were walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic.”

The robbery “was not related to the initial contact” between the officer and Brown, he said.

Which is the exact opposite of what they said this morning.

Dorian Johnson, the friend who was with Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer over the weekend, reportedly confirmed that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. But police have determined that Johnson was not involved in the robbery and will not seek charges against him, Jackson said.

So the guy is confessing, and he’s probably on the security video, but they won’t bother to charge him as an accessory to shoplifting. What’s that, a $20 fine? No, it’s not worth it, not in this situation.

Police reports released Friday under an open-records request showed that at 11:51 a.m. on the day of the shooting, authorities received a 911 call reporting a robbery at the Ferguson Market. An unidentified officer was dispatched to the store, arriving within three minutes. The officer interviewed an employee and customer, who gave a description of a man who stole the cigars and walked off with another man toward a QuikTrip store.

Descriptions of the suspect were broadcast over the police radio. The officer did not find the suspects either on the street or at the Quik Trip, the reports said.

Separately, Wilson had been responding to a nearby call involving a sick 2-month child from 11:48 am until noon, when he left that place. A minute later, he encountered Michael Brown walking down Canfield Drive. The documents contained no description of what happened between Brown and Wilson.

OK, maybe the BOLO from the robbery had nothing to do with the later shooting. But still. There’s something wrong here. Something missing. Some large thing we aren’t hearing about. Something 100 times bigger than just walking in the middle of road. But this changing story from the po-po sure isn’t helping anyone. Anyone. It hurts everyone.

How fast can they get a toxicology screening back on all three of the people involved? Brown, Wilson, and Johnson. Was anyone high on PCP or meth? Got some ‘roid rage going on? There has to be some explanation.

Another Ruby Ridge Coming Soon

Put The Cow Down, Step Away From The Prairie

Hundreds of armed federal agents surround Nevada ranch



A two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner’s cattle, according to the rancher’s family.

Cliven Bundy, the last rancher in Clark County, Nev., has been fighting a “one-man range war” since 1993, when he decided to take a stand against the agency, refusing to pay fees for the right to graze on a ranch run by his family for centuries.

After years of court battles, the BLM secured a federal court order to have Bundy’s “trespass cattle” forcibly removed with heavy artillery, the family said.

“The battle’s been going on for 20 years,” Bundy told theWashington Free Beacon. “What’s happened the last two weeks, the United States government, the bureaus are getting this army together and they’re going to get their job done and they’re going to prove two things. They’re going to prove they can do it, and they’re gonna prove that they have unlimited power, and that they control the policing power over this public land. That’s what they’re trying to prove.”

Bundy said the government has brought everything but tanks and rocket launchers.

The area that Bundy and his family have ranched on since the 19th century was declared a protected critical habitat for the desert tortoise. Bundy has also refused to pay massive “user fees” to graze his cattle on public lands.

“The story is a lot about the cattle, but the bigger story is about our loss of freedom,” Carol Bundy added. “They have come and taken over this whole corner of the county. They’ve taken over policing power, they’ve taken over our freedom, and they’re stealing cattle.”

“And our sheriff says he just doesn’t have authority, our governor says he doesn’t have authority, and we’re saying, why are we a state?”

“I’m a producer,” Cliven Bundy said. “I produce edible commodity from the desert forage, and all of these things are governed under state law. So, in other words, this type of government has eliminated all of our state law, eliminated our state sovereignty, and has took control over our public lands and even took control over our Clark County sheriff. They’ve taken the whole county over. The whole state, almost.”

“This is just about power of the government,” Carol Bundy said.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R.) voiced his concern about so-called “First Amendment Areas,” designated locations set up by the BLM where citizens can protest the removal.

“Most disturbing to me is the BLM’s establishment of a ‘First Amendment Area’ that tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution,” he said in a statement Tuesday.

Good golly, now that’s a real surprise. Amazing, ain’t it, how once you get outside of college campuses where the indoctrinated mindless juveniles are, actual adults aren’t at all willing to limit their opinion venting to “free speech zones”? Crivens ("Clivens" in this case maybe?). Good for them: the only free speech zone we have starts in Alaska, runs down to Hawaii, then east up to Maine and then down to Florida. We call it the First Amendment. They call it a troubling non-compliance with federal regulation.

Second Verse, Same As The First

Henry the Eighth I am I am, Henry the Eight I am ... oh wait, not that one. Sadly. No, this one: another INSANE anti-gun law makes a criminal out of a law abiding citizen. And now he’s a ... get this BS ... a registered gun offender. Say what? WTFF has this county become? Holy clams on the half-shell.

Mark Witaschek: Registered Gun Offender
Convicted of possessing a dud shotgun shell, one empty brass case, and a handful of loose bullets.
Turned in by his ex-wife, of course.

Where is that damn Reset Button? Time to drain the fever swamp that is Washington DC, and hose down all the insects there with DDT. And they’re ALL insects.

Witaschek surrenders to D.C. police ‘Gun Offenders Registry’; Businessman convicted of having unregistered muzzleloader bullets

Mark Witaschek never had a firearm in the District of Columbia, but he is now on the city’s Gun Offenders Registry.

This bizarre case has drawn national attention because an upstanding citizen was tried and convicted of possessing unregistered ammunition for muzzleloader bullets, which are simply pieces of lead and copper.
...
On Friday afternoon, I accompanied Mr. Witaschek and his wife, Bonnie, to Metropolitan Police Department headquarters to abide by the terms of his sentence, which meant registering within 48 hours.

Immediately inside the front doors and metal detectors is the Gun Offenders Registry Unit, which has suddenly appeared in the same office space as what was the Firearms Registry Unit. A white piece of paper taped over the existing painted sign indicated the office switch.

“They label it ‘gun-offender registry’ to sound like a sex-offender registry,” Mr. Witaschek noted.

There were five uniformed officers and one plainclothes cop manning the unit. We were the only civilians. Mr. Witaschek quietly gave his name and said why he was there.

“We’ve been waiting for you,” said Officer Flores

I have unregistered muzzleloader bullets. And round balls too. And thousands of unregistered pistol and rifle bullets, in your choice of cast lead, jacketed, solid copper, solid bronze, and a variety of shapes and styles. And I’m certain I could dig up a few dud rounds, although I make it a habit to break them up and dispose of them ASAP.

For Mr. Witaschek, the registration process took less than 30 minutes sinc e no other offenders were in the office at the same time.

Outside the police station, I asked Mr. Witaschek how he felt about submitting to this requirement of his sentence given by Judge Robert Morin.

I was found guilty of something that is not even illegal and forced to register for something that is not illegal,” Mr. Witaschek said. He paused, then he just shook his head.

Mr. Witaschek is appealing his conviction both on technical grounds that muzzleloaders [muzzle loading] bullets are not classified as ammunition under the law and on the constitutional grounds that his Second Amendment rights have been infringed.

Sounds like jack booted thuggery to me. Sounds like it’s high time to Take Back America from our very own cops. Sounds like cause for revolution.

Follow the link above to learn more about the new, secret list THAT YOU CAN’T SEE that the DC cops are keeping. Oh, they’ll happily share it with any other government employee. But not you, citizen scum. Bad dog! Back in line! Heads down! Praise Obama, mmm mmm mmm! Work harder!!

For more of Witaschek’s case, go here, and read about the INSANE over the top antics of a completely out of control, over-militarized police department. Every last one of these fuckers should be fired and charged. Every. Last. One. Because this is the real story here ... the you-can’t-do-shit-about-it ham-handed gestapo tactics of modern American police, operating with impunity far outside the law and any constitutional restraint. They are your masters, slave, so you’d better behave.

Mark Witaschek, a successful financial adviser with no criminal record, is facing two years in prison for possession of unregistered ammunition after D.C. police raided his house looking for guns. Mr. Witaschek has never had a firearm in the city, but he is being prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The trial starts on Nov. 4.

The police banged on the front door of Mr. Witaschek’s Georgetown home at 8:20 p.m. on July 7, 2012, to execute a search warrant for “firearms and ammunition … gun cleaning equipment, holsters, bullet holders and ammunition receipts.”

SEE ALSO: MILLER: Justice delayed is justice denied - Appeal for decision on D.C.’s gun carry-rights ban

Mr. Witaschek’s 14-year-old daughter let inside some 30 armed officers in full tactical gear.

D.C. law requires residents to register every firearm with the police, and only registered gun owners can possess ammunition, which includes spent shells and casings. The maximum penalty for violating these laws is a $1,000 fine and a year in jail.

Police based their search on a charge made by Mr. Witaschek’s estranged wife, who had earlier convinced a court clerk to issue a temporary restraining order against her husband for threatening her with a gun, although a judge later found the charge to be without merit.

What the fuck. Who does she think she is, Jerry Ryan?

Connecticut: Firearms Confiscation Plan On Hold: 2/3 Of Police Force Is On The List Too

Connecticut has been making news due to their hastily passed gun registration laws. According to some sources as few as 15% of gun owners have actually registered their firearms. News Blogs have been warning state officials are talking about mass confiscations of the unregistered firearms.

Plans for these confiscations hit a snag when a legislative intern dared to ask a question. “Who will be going door to door to take all the guns away?” asked the 21-year-old college senior.

Reportedly multiple people in the room in the most sarcastic voices they could muster said “the police”.

The unnamed intern then pointed at the list and said, “my dad’s name is on the list, and he is the police chief. I see three other names on this list of family members, all cops.”

Within hours a print off of all sworn Law Enforcement officers in the state was obtained. Comparisons of the list of gun owners who failed to comply with registration requirements and sworn LEOs showed a startling figure. Just over 68% of Connecticut cops had failed to register firearms according to the new law.

An anonymous source in the Governors office said lawmakers were dumbfounded.
...
So now Connecticut is in little quagmire. The powers that be are making all kinds of threats, but there is no one to follow through on the threats.

Dumbfounded? Really? I’d say those lawmakers are not just stupid, but willfully blinded by their own beliefs.

On the other hand, since when has total hypocrisy ever stopped those in power or with badges from doing whatever they wanted?

On the third hand, if the state already had a list of who owned what guns, then why did they need to make the people go through the BS of registration? Was that just an exercise in brow beating, and object lesson to remind the plebes who was in charge?

ezra levant, a fellow you should see and hear.

It has been a long time since this guy has been shown here.  Those regulars to bmews might recall his legal persecution by a Canadian court.
If ever there was a free speech issue and not in name only, well this guy has been thru the ringer.

There is an interesting piece and another video that runs for 30 minutes which this video below, refers to.  It’s at the Gates of Vienna but there’s something weird happening cos all I got was an error page and an error 500.  So .... I got the second video, the one below this one, at YTube but not the written editorial.
No matter.

PLEASE guys ... listen to this man.  This is a short video and a mind bender.
After this one ....

watch this one!

My usual negative self. I never used to be quite this negative, but damn if all the evidence I see doesn’t point to doom and gloom.
It’s been a number of years since Pat Buchanan wrote the book, “The Death of the West”.  My friends, it is suicide and he was on the money, sorry to say.
So long as western culture and western courts allow the system to be used against itself by our enemies, we lose. The people he is talking about are more like a deadly virus in the form of slimy worms slithering under and into western cultures. They can be found in the sewers of the world and under rocks and thriving on waste and decay and filth and .... here’s the really dangerous part.  Not all of them are muslims.  Too many are their useful idiots, they are guilt ridden left wing middle class (they often are) whites.  The muslim menace is well funded and pretty well organized, because they are allowed to be.

Police Brutality

OMG!! As a postman I’ve had to deal with dogs almost daily. That dog was not a threat. All you had to do was kneel down, coax the dog to you and pet him. If it was going to try to bite, I’d have pepper-sprayed it. But that was not a threatening dog. That was a dog excited about a new person.

Warning: Graphic of police shooting a non-threatening dog. Bet their mailman would back me.

Full story here

This is why mailmen aren’t armed. We find other, non-lethal, ways around your pet dogs. We make friends with them, or pepper-spray them if they are aggressive. If they are aggressive, you may have mail delivery curtailed. Shooting the dog should NOT have been the officer’s first choice. That dog was busy barking, not ready to bite.

ordered to take ‘diversity training’ all because she saw it another way. pc sucks!

Here we are again with the gollywog thing, but yet another outrageous bit of political correctness. 

When things get to this point, can anyone, anywhere still believe this place has a future?

Say you disagree with a pc position, and get yourself ordered to take diversity training.

Diversity .... it used to be known as integration.  Well actually, Forced integration.  But I guess diversity sounds so soft and so reasonable.

Well it isn’t either.  Here’s a case of a woman who says something is not racist and acts on that belief as a city councillor, and because a few ppl with a personal interest due to them being from minorities and so they get to say what is and isn’t racist, she has to take training. What total stupidity. What BS!

What’s up next?  How about anyone who denies gorebal warming being ordered to take some silly arsed course in tree hugging.  If that ever does come to pass, it will most likely establish its roots here in the UK.

Tory councillor, 72, ordered to undertake diversity training for claiming golliwogs are ‘nostalgic not racist’

A Conservative councillor is to undergo diversity training after offending ethnic minorities with her claim that golliwogs are ‘nostalgic, not racist’.

Cllr Dawn Barnett was found guilty of bringing Brighton and Hove City Council into disrepute with her remarks.

In August, Cllr Barnett said she thought golliwogs were ‘nostalgic, not racist’.

And she dismissed complaints against a city homestore selling golliwog placemats as ‘political correctness gone too far’.

However, a panel of three fellow councillors cleared the 72-year-old of failing to treat others with respect and breaching the Equalities Act.

The board - sitting in a closed hearing on Thursday - also recommended that all councillors should undergo diversity training in the future.

Her comments provoked four ‘separate but similar’ complaints from three people and the council’s Black and Minority Ethnic Workers’ Forum.

One complainant asked for an apology from Cllr Barnett while another said they wished to see her expelled from the council.

Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Barnett said the issue should never have progressed to a hearing and was a waste of taxpayers’ money.

Yesterday’s hearing - lasting more than five-and-a-half hours - was also attended by a number of senior council staff.

They included a monitoring officer, head of complaints, and head of democratic services.

A council report on the proceedings will not be made available to the public until early next week.

Cllr Barnett, of the Hangleton and Knoll ward, said: ‘They threw out the two most serious charges but said I was guilty of breaching the code of conduct.

‘I am pleased they have let me off on the other two serious charges but very disappointed they have judged I broke the code of conduct.

‘I don’t think it should have got this far, it was a waste of taxpayers’ money and officers’ time.

‘I apologised to anyone who was upset by my comments and that should have been the end of it.

‘I understand the reasons why they had it behind closed doors but there were a lot of upset people outside the meeting that were angry it wasn’t held in public.’

A Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman said the incident highlighted the ‘need for training and awareness raising among all councillors on equalities issues’.

This will form part of member development in the future, she added.

the stink of political correctness

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.
