Gun nutters and Trumptards execute black man out for a Jog

Recommended Posts

It’s all on video but 2 DA’s refused to bring it to a Grand Jury.

https://www.mediaite.com/news/this-was-a-lynching-social-media-reacts-with-grief-and-outrage-over-new-video-of-black-man-shot-while-jogging/

Jeffie will be along to ask why was he jogging in a white neighborhood, AGITC will be concerned but optimistic, Tedious Tom will point out that at least they didn’t use an ordinary squirrel gun.

The first 2 DAs failed to do their jobs.  Likely because the father involved in the slaying was in law enforcement, allegedly in the DAs office.

There is a DA involved now, who vows it will go to a Grand Jury, as soon as one can be convened.  COVID shutdowns are involved.

Wait until the gun nutters and Trumptards accuse you of having and spreading Covid........Trigger happy Morans get to be Judge, Jury and Executioner.

I don’t see this ending well especially in the South.

Lets call it what it is - White Privilege. In all likelihood that guy and his kid will walk.  

Those sorts of murders are not at all unusual in the US - and not just in the South. 

Read up on the remarkable Congressman Robert Smalls - sea captain, escaped slave, businessman and more. 

While in the US Congress after reconstruction, his office became a clearing house for reports of the murder and 

lynching of blacks by white terrorists. Smalls did that because the white media & political leaders of the time 

were not interested in acquiring that information. People from all over the country sent him reports of the terror. 

Smalls argued that by 1905 or so, there had been about 30,000 of these killings, far more than had been thought, 

and more than most analysts today believe. 

Almost none of the perps faced justice, and convictions were vanishingly rare.

I always regarded the south to be much the same as our own Cape Breton coal mining country.

If I had been unfortunate to have been born there I would have been on the road hitch hiking away the day after high school grad.

With TV, movies etc. how can anyone not be aware that it's better almost anywhere else?

“If I had been unfortunate to have been born there I would have been on the road hitch hiking away the day after high school grad.”

I submit the following for your consideration:

Had you been born there most likely your family roots would go back many generations.  A way of life where no other way of life was imagined.

You might not have graduated from high school but followed your father, uncles, older brother into whatever line of work the family was into.

You might have gotten your high school girlfriend pregnant (no comment on whether she might have been a cousin  :o)

Hitchhike to where? Two towns over?

I get  where you are coming from but it is hard to go where no one in your family, and few in your town, have gone.

I was raised in a terribly depressed mining area. There was a pregnancy scare. Fortunately just a scare. I left.

Where I grew up it was the factory.  For those of us who left the town, some did not go far.  I might have missed one or two, but so far as I know I’m the only one of my high school graduating class who left the state to go to college.  Everyone else who went stayed in state. 

The elite, private schools were never on our radar screen.  Princeton was for “them,” not “us.”

In a bizarre sort of way I find myself, some almost 60 years after leaving my hometown, living in a place that resembles where I grew up. City of about 100,000 within spitting distance of a mega metro, multi-ethnic, once a union stronghold, very blue collar, industrial/manufacturing with its best days far in the rear view mirror.  Even a huge body of water on the doorstep.

There are a whole lot of folks spread across the south, who understand that black folks and other democRATS are America's real enemy. Get ready for more of this type of stuff as things get worse with the virus and economy. Should Trump not be reelected, there will be unrest.  The protests we've been seeing are about letting folks know that FreedomWorks' warriors are primed and ready.

It's the black guy's fault.

He shouldn't have gone jogging in an area full of ignorant hate-filled crackers.

He should have instantly laid down and surrendered when faced with white men with guns.

He should have left the South (or the USA) before he was born.....

 

The killers will probably continue to get away with it. Black people will show their outrage, and quite possibly some more will be shot. 

America is fucked.

Everyone with some kind of economic or other hardship looks for someone to blame it on.  As long as the R's can continue to get away with blaming the D's and "socialists" for all the economic problems,  the R's will continue to be elected.  That is why they call this the "post-truth" era.

We're seeing a full-fledged purge of the judiciary, and Trump has been sort of pushing his butt-kissers into the Federal bureaucracy here and there. Barr is an outright fascist who is working to turn the DOJ into a political enforcer arm; and if impeachment did anything it motivated Trump to be less lazy.

If Trump wins... and frankly I expect he will... along with a majority or even a relatively strong minority in either chamber of Congress, there will be a purge of Stalinist proportions reaching thru the military, and down into local law enforcement.

You'll not only see Nazis and KKK marching on Main St, you'll see them getting badges

If the Klan, or the camo clad equivalent repeats itself, there will be a strong correlation between the hate mongers and the local conservative/evangelist church congregations. Just as it was in the ‘20s.

Respectfully but strongly disagree: the US south is a very large and diverse area. 

There are pockets of progressives everywhere; all the major cities are progressive. 

Lefty Alt Culture thrives. 

And even where it does not, the vast number of folks will treat you with warm regard. 

That being said, it is quite true that the political culture is mostly dominated by feudal elements.

If read a ton of coverage on this incident.  Everything points to the fact that these two white men are guilty of slaying a black man.  

Nothing points to the fact they are "Gunnutters" and "Trumptards" and that that was their motivation.  You Libs really need to get a grip on your TDS.

Agreed, but there are other issues, like the very different storyline made public until the video came out. Is the cameraman a bystander or a perp? Why no arrests?

They ambushed an unarmed man with shotguns on a public street and blasted him until he was dead.  One of them also armed drove behind to take a snuff video and to block any retreat.  That’s the definition of a gun nutter and gun nutters are Trumptards.  In the transcript of their conversation with law enforcement they called the victim a nigger.  So they're also racists which is highly correlated with being a Trumptard.

Who other than gun nutters and *Rumptards would be carrying weapons and shoot a jogging black man in cold blood?  

Just racists, you say? Just 2nd Amendment militants, you say?  Just people scared of black joggers, you say?  

In other words, a perfect Venn diagram match with gun nutters and *Rumptards.

I really think that T, G and B are going to have a real problem with requisite force.  There may not have been an issue if they wrestled him to the ground.  Since he did not have a gun, all we know is that we are dealing with cowards.  What happens if I think they did something wrong and they just kept on walking.  Even with them having guns, do I have the ability to shoot them until the cops arrive? There may over-riding laws on equity of response.

Interesting. I believe "first hand" indicates at least one of the three told the cops they witnessed an attempted burglary by this kid.  He's gonna have to swear to it now. If he does and has something to back it up, it's going to be tough to convict, I reckon.

Depends on the composition of the jury of their “peers”.  But I’m sure they’ve already been caught in a lie.  They don’t look too bright.

Well, you and I agree 95% of the time, but I have to ask . . 

when is the last time an Ozzie was prosecuted for shooting down an aboriginal person in cold blood? 

I do not know the answer to that question, but respectfully would like to . .

Probably a very long time ago.

1) we have few guns

2) We have few gun murders

3) we have few murders

4) generally speaking, though racism is alive and well in australia, generally it's casual racism..we don't generally go around killing people because of race.:rolleyes:

Hell, we even successfully  prosecute people for killing housebreakers and cyclists..accidental or no.

I'll never understand how your legal and "justice" system "works"

Can someone explain why these two men were not arrested, charged and remanded in custody without bail  as anyone elsewhere would have been anywhere in the world? 

Couple of reasons...

1)They get away with it enough of the time.  Black lives aren't valued as much, and the investigations show it.

2)Bigotry.

3)The shooters had ties to law enforcement.  That gets a wink and a nod and evidence sometimes shuffled under the rug.

4) 1+3

Three could be a big part.    Ties to law enforcement in a small town with few people ‘not from around here’ really do matter,    Who you know matters.   If they shot a white nobody the results could have been similar.   I haven’t bothered to look at this case, I’m just commenting based on time in rural areas.   This is probably the reason why sheriffs were made elected positions.    It worked in my favor once or twice.    Once the cops apologized for not being more discrete, when the ex’s teen son got in trouble.    ‘They didn’t realize it was my houser or they would have handled it differently,’.      .   It isn’t right.   It happens.

Good one. Cheap. Gratuitous. Right up your alley.

I always regarded the south to be much the same as our own Cape Breton coal mining country.

If I had been unfortunate to have been born there I would have been on the road hitch hiking away the day after high school grad.

With TV, movies etc. how can anyone not be aware that it's better almost anywhere else?

This type of behavior may escalate if Trump gets re-elected.  Validation and all that, without any constraints.

And Trump has shown laws don't really matter with the right type of politicking.

They were white men who shot a black man in the south.

That, like it or not, is the explanation.

No longer a requirement for lethal "justice" anymore.  

"Being normal while Black" is now the baseline we've achieved for unjustifiable homicides.

Was that the police department with jurisdiction?    More cops and more fit then I expected.   Disappointing they haven’t entered the 20th century yet.

Georgia is a death penalty state.

Yeah? When was the last time they executed a white guy for killing a black guy?

Vice versa?

Fun read.

... And the next time Florida gets hit by a hurricane, you can come crying to us if you want to, but you're the ones who built on a fucking swamp. "Let the Spanish keep it; it's a shithole," we said, but you had to have your fucking orange juice.

Interesting. I believe "first hand" indicates at least one of the three told the cops they witnessed an attempted burglary by this kid.  He's gonna have to swear to it now. If he does and has something to back it up, it's going to be tough to convict, I reckon. 

They have been arrested and charged with murder and aggravated assault. But it's the South and so it will be tough to convict.

I agree with all above but am recalling a big city black police chief opining on natl tv back in Mike Brown days: "Stop resisting arrest."

Really nothing complicated.

Probably a very long time ago.

1) we have few guns

2) We have few gun murders

3) we have few murders

4) generally speaking, though racism is alive and well in australia, generally it's casual racism..we don't generally go around killing people because of race.:rolleyes:

Hell, we even successfully  prosecute people for killing housebreakers and cyclists..accidental or no.

We have lots of guns. Not much hand guns but long guns, definitely.

If you want to argue with me, first you'd better define what you mean by 'few' because I don't think you actually have a clue what's out there quite legally. The import figures show that there's more long guns legally in Australia now than before the Port Arthur massacre. Different mix, but still more of them.

What we don't have is the USA's utterly fucked culture where guns are used because the culture says it's ok to shoot people if they aren't the right colour or 'disrespect' you somehow.. Thank Dog in Her wisdom for that too.

I can't recall the last time an Aboriginal was shot for being an Aboriginal but I'd venture it was back in the 1930's and in the Northern Territory, or possibly Western Australia. A number of cases where a white stockman would steal a woman and shoot anyone from the tribe who objected.

There's a case before the courts ATM where a police officer shot & killed one in the NT. I don't know the details on that but IIRC he's up for prosecution for murder. And there was that cop on Palm Island who killed one a few years back or let him die in the cells, can't quite remember. A riot resulted from that and we didn't send in armed police to shoot anyone.

But chasing one down in a suburban setting and shooting him down like a dog? Never happened in my lifetime that I know about, and I expect I would know. That sort of bullshit is purely on you guys in the USA.
