Illegal Alien Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder

Illegal Unaccompanied Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder – Townhall

.

.
Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to “stem the tide” of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States.

“We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old,” an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. “They are being held for placement in the U.S.”

By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.

“But remember, this is a ‘humanitarian crisis.’ They are just kids,” he said in a frustrated and sarcastic tone. “They are MS-13 gang members. They’ve done everything from torture to murder. They act as teenage ‘enforcers.’”

Over 36,000 Criminal Illegals Convicted Of Everything From Rape To Murder Were Released In 2013

Murderers, Rapists, Kidnappers: Over 36,000 Criminal Illegal Immigrants Released In 2013 – Daily Caller

Nearly 200 murderers, over 400 rapists, and 300 kidnappers in the U.S. illegally were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement while awaiting deportation proceedings, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

.

.
A total of 36,007 criminal illegal immigrants that were being processed for deportation were freed in 2013. Together, they committed nearly 88,000 crimes, according to the report, published Monday.

“I was astonished at not only the huge number of convicted criminals who were freed from ICE custody last year – an average of almost 100 a day – but also at the large number of very serious crimes they had committed,” said Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, in a statement.

ICE gathered the statistics – which include a breakdown by crime – in response to congressional inquiry following another report released earlier this year by the Center of Immigration Studies.

That report, which was based on internal Department of Homeland Security documents, showed that ICE encountered over 193,000 illegal immigrant convicts. Charging documents were issued for 125,000, and nearly 68,000 were released.

That review also found that 870,000 illegal immigrants had been removed from ICE dockets despite being in defiance of the law. The number of illegal aliens targeted for deportation fell 28 percent between 2012 and 2013, according to the documents.

The 36,007 illegal immigrants reported Monday were freed by ICE during the final disposition of their cases. The 68,000 from the previous report were criminals who encountered ICE agents – often in jails – but were released without undergoing deportation proceedings.

The 36,007 were released by bond, parole, unsupervised release, or on their own recognizance.

Besides violent criminals, ICE released nearly 16,000 illegal immigrants convicted of driving under the influence. The report also shows that ICE released nearly 2,700 illegal immigrants convicted of assault, 1,300 convicted for domestic violence, and nearly 1,300 convicted for battery.

“These figures call into question President Obama’s request to Congress for permission to reduce immigration detention capacity by 10 percent in favor of permission to make wider use of experimental alternatives to detention,” reads the report.

In June 2011, the administration began applying “prosecutorial discretion” to many deportation cases. This has led to a 40 percent decrease in the number of deportations.

“Congress should resist further action on immigration reform until the public can be assured that enforcement is more robust and that ICE can better deal with its criminal alien caseload without setting them free in our communities,” said Vaughan in a statement.

Stripper Who Falsely Accused Duke Lacrosse Players Of Rape Found Guilty Of Murder (Video)

Watch The Moment When Woman Who Falsely Accused Duke Lacrosse Players Of Rape Is Found Guilty Of Murder – The Blaze

The woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.

.

The jury deliberated for about six hours over two days before reaching their verdict in the trial of 34-year-old Crystal Mangum, who was sentenced to between 14 years and 18 years in prison.

Mangum was on trial in the death of 46-year-old Reginald Daye. He was stabbed on April 3, 2011 and he died of complications 10 days later.

In 2006, Mangum claimed Duke lacrosse players gang raped her at a team party where she was hired as a stripper.

The three arrested were eventually declared innocent by North Carolina’s attorney general after Mangum’s story crumbled and her mental stability was questioned.

The following are courtroom clips showing the moment Mangum heard her verdict read, as well as statements from the victim’s family:

.

.
More from the Los Angeles Times regarding the Duke lacrosee case:

“You have all been told some fantastic lies, and I look forward to watching them unravel in the weeks to come, as they already have in weeks past… The truth will come out,” lacrosse player David Evans said after he was indicted.

The case did slowly fall apart as DNA evidence failed to tie Mangum to any of the 46 white players on the team. She eventually recanted her statement and said she was not sure she had been raped, although she insisted some sort of sexual assault had taken place.

In court, defense lawyers revealed that the prosecuting attorney and the lab director had withheld evidence that showed that the DNA on Mangum’s body did not match the defendants, and that it matched other men. The defense claimed that the district attorney who was prosecuting violated police policy by using a photo lineup that showed photos only of lacrosse players and did not mix in other men.

“She was, in effect, given a multiple choice test in which there were no wrong answers,” a defense motion said.

The district attorney withdrew from the case, resigned and was disbarred.

Did The Chemical Weapons Used To Murder Hundreds Of Syrian Civilians Come From Saddam’s Iraq?

Who’s Lying Now? Syria’s Chemical Attacks Indicate President Bush Didn’t ‘Lie’ About WMDs – TPNN

The Obama Administration has further confirmed what military analysts have been suggesting for months; according to a senior Obama Administration official on Sunday, there is “very little doubt” within the intelligence community that Syria has used chemical weapons against their own citizens.

Such a revelation leads to the questions: Where did Syria get the weapons of mass destruction? And whatever happened to those WMDs in Iraq, Syria’s neighbor to the East?

.

The statement by the senior official was released on Sunday under the condition that the official not be named publicly. It includes strong indications that the Obama Administration’s stance is that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s military forces used chemical weapons on civilians and that Syria’s commitment to allowing UN inspectors in comes too late.

The statement notes,

“Based on the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, witness accounts and other facts gathered by open sources, the U.S. intelligence community, and international partners, there is very little doubt at this point that a chemical weapon was used by the Syrian regime against civilians in this incident.”

The official also claimed that the President has not yet decided whether or not to act on the suspected attack in a Damascus suburb that left hundreds dead.

The tougher posturing by the White House comes after months of criticism by Republicans that the Obama Administration had not taken seriously enough allegations that Syria had used chemical weapons in previous attacks. President Obama declared last year that the use of WMDs against civilians by Syria would be a “red line” that would force action from the international community.

Though naval forces have moved closer to Syria, indicating a potential military strike against select Syrian military installations, Syria has declared that any military engagement would force them to “create a ball of fire that will inflame the Middle East.”

The Obama Administration will have some tough choices ahead. Iran is allied with Syria and, more dangerously, the Russians remain the only member of the U.N. Security Council still allied with Syria, which can further complicate the already-strained relations between the two countries.

Further, the Obama Administration has already augmented several of the Bush Administration’s more unpopular policies by heightening drone usage and turning NSA surveillance onto the American people. Mounting a military operation without the complete backing of the UN over WMDs will only make it harder for the Obama Administration to pretend that they represent the “hope” and “change” promised to the American people.

Lastly, admitting that Syria is using WMDs will force America to question where the Syrians obtained the sarin gas. As intelligence prior to the invasion of Iraq indicated that Saddam’s Iraq had sarin gas and amidst large speculation that such weapons were moved to Syria, the use of sarin gas in Syria might prove to vindicate the Bush Administration’s assertions that WMDs were, in fact, in Iraq.

In January, 2006, former Iraqi general, Georges Sada publicly declared that Saddam’s military transferred large stockpiles of chemical weapons to Syria using civilian aircraft with the passenger seats removed. “There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands,’ Mr. Sada said. ‘I am confident they were taken over.’”

Sada, Hussein’s number 2 in the Iraqi Air Force, claims that 56 trips by two Iraqi Airways Boeings were used to smuggle the weapons into Syria under the guise of civilian flights. “Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming,” Sada said. “They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians.”

In March, retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney spoke publicly about the likelihood of WMDs in Syria and the high probability that the weapons were moved to Syria immediately prior to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

After an alleged chemical attack near Aleppo, Syria, Lt. Gen. McInerney was asked what the chances were that the chemicals weapons came from Iraq.

“I think there is a high probability of that,” McInerney declared. “That’s conjecture, but we do know prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom, there was a lot of vehicles crossing the border into Syria. And there was a great deal of conjecture. A Iraqi major general swore by it. He said he delivered it. And so I think that it would be a very high probability if we could get into those bunkers that they would have Iraqi signatures on them.”

If the Obama administration authorizes military action without UN approval, we can expect that the White House will claim that this military action is, somehow, radically different from Bush’s military action. Further, Americans shouldn’t expect to hear any apologies from the left to Bush or his supporters. Though Syria’s WMD usage might seem to vindicate President Bush’s intelligence reports, Democrats will likely have a hard time letting go of the increasingly-improbable theory that Bush purposefully lied in order to wage a war.

Three Black Teens Murder White Man Because They Were Bored

Oklahoma: Three Black Teens Murder White Australian Baseball Player Because They Were “Bored” – Weasel Zippers

Cat got your tongue, Al?

.

Via Herald Sun:

The images of three youths police say murdered Melbourne baseballer Christopher Lane have emerged.

The Oklahoma teens who face first-degree murder charges have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones.

But their parents yesterday protested their innocence.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

Christopher Lane, 22, was randomly gunned down while jogging through the town of Duncan in Oklahoma on Friday afternoon local time. [...]

It comes as Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said he had secured the confession of the 17-year-old who summoned investigators to his jail cell and claimed he and the younger boys were bored “so they decided to kill somebody”.

Trayvon Martins mother lies about stand your ground laws

Here we go, the Left AGAIN, lying to achieve a political goal. In this case the goal being to outlaw self-defense. I know, I know, I must not attack this woman, or even question her. She lost her son, and that gives her Moral Authority that cannot be challenged right? WRONG! This woman is LYING, and she knows damn well she is lying. And she is lying to curtail my rights to protect myself and those precious to me! Sorry, but her absolute moral authority card expired when she started pissing on my human rights! Video via Gateway Pundit

Get ready for the Left to hold up this Zimmerman juror as a hero

Via The Blaze

In an interview with ABC News set to air Thursday, the woman, known only as “Maddy,” said everyone on the all-female jury felt Zimmerman was guilty, but that the evidence didn’t let them convict him.

“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” Maddy said. “But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”

Note that she says there was not evidence to convict Zimmerman. That is something the media will no doubt completely ignore when they start blowing this out of proportion tomorrow. The media, and Liberal politicians will focus ONLY on the “we felt he was guilty” part of her interview. Odd it is that she says in the interview that she was the one dissenter against acquitting him

She revealed that she wanted to convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder, and “fought to the end” before finally voting to acquit.

“I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. I fought to the end,” she said.

But on the second day of deliberations, she said, she realized there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder or of manslaughter, which the jury was also allowed to consider.

So after sitting through the trial, and after two days of deliberations, THEN, she finally realized there was no evidence? Sorry that does not add up. Sounds to me, and this is only an opinion here, that she is trying to ingratiate herself with the Left here. Wonder how many times MSNBS will have her on?

 

What if Zimmerman had been Black, and Trayvon Martin White?

I hear a lot of that from the justice for Trayvon types. Here is a story though about a Black man, who confronted three WHITE teens who were trying to break into his car, shooting and killing one of them in self-defense. He was charged, and acquitted. He has gone through legal Hell, but funny, I do not recall Je$$e Jackson or Al Sharpton coming to this man’s aid. I do not recall the NAACP rushing to defend him. I do not recall anyone from the Left trying to make this a national story on race either. I guess stories have to fit into agendas BEFORE we see any outrage from the race pimps.

 

NAACP is a disgrace

Their leadership race baits, and uses divisive language in an effort to stay relevant. Rather than  tackling real problems, like Black crime rates, 93% of Black murder victims are murdered by Blacks, or the rampant issue of unwed pregnancies, the NAACP rants about Confederate flags or monuments, and injects race into issues to stir up “outrage”. The NAACP is a Left-Wing group, period! Take how they treat Black Conservatives for instance

Diversity? Tolerance? Actually helping Blacks in America? Fat chance, the NAACP would rather persecute a man acquitted for murder than try to do any actual good.

Woman Caught On Tape Casually Plotting Murder Of Husband With Cop Posing As Hit Man

Breathtaking Footage Of Wife Meeting With Fake Hit Man To Plan Her Husband’s Murder – Daily Caller

Muskegon County resident Julia Merfeld hired a Michigan State police detective disguised as a hit man to have her husband murdered.

.

Two meetings between the two were caught on hidden camera and captured this shocking footage.

Merfeld was arrested after the second meeting with the fake hit man, both conversations occurring in his vehicle and lasting about 11 minutes.

21-year-old Merfeld told the cop she thought was a hit-man, “When I first decided to do this… its not that we weren’t getting along. But… terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him.”

Authorities attribute another motive: her 27-year-old husband’s $400,000 life insurance policy. Merfeld planned to use some of the life insurance money to pay the hit man’s fee, she told him.

In this astonishing footage, the young wife discusses possible dates for the killing in between laughs and checking her calendar on her cell phone.

.

.
During the second meeting, she gives him a floor plan of the house and directions. She then tells him she wants it done in the most painless way possible.

The detective tells Merfeld that when she leaves his car it will be a done deal, to which the young wife responds, “It makes me sad.” She proceeds to leave the vehicle and wish the hit man good luck.

The man who tipped off police was Carlos Ramos, her co-worker whom she offered $50,000 to kill her husband. Instead, he called police, who set up the meetings with the fake hit man that led to her arrest, according to MLive.

The couple recently moved to Muskegon, MI from New Jersey with their two young children.

Merfeld is currently being held in Muskegon County Jail where she awaits her trial on July 30. The judge committed to a minimum sentence of six years and a maximum up to life in prison after she pleaded guilty to solicitation for murder on June 26th.

Did Adam Lanza pick Newtown school because it was an easy target

We argue that “gun-free zones” make easy targets for nutcases. The Left scoffs at our logic. Well………..

According to law enforcement Newtown killer Adam Lanza picked the local primary school because it was an easy target and he knew he could murder a lot of children in one attack. And he did just that.
CBS reported, via Pirate’s Cove.

Law enforcement sources say Adam Lanza was motivated by violent video games and a strong desire to kill more people than another infamous mass murderer.

Sources say Lanza saw himself as being in direct competition with Anders Breivik, a Norwegian man who killed 77 people in July 2011.

Two officials who have been briefed on the Newtown, Conn., investigation say Lanza wanted to top Breivik’s death toll and targeted nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School because it was the “easiest target” with the “largest cluster of people.”

Evidence shows that his mind, sources say, Lanza was also likely acting out the fantasies of a video game as he killed 20 first graders and six adults at the school. For Lanza, the deaths apparently amounted to some kind of “score.”

So, in short he was whacked completely out of his mind, and picked the easiest target he could find. What a shocker! The Left, of course, will still blame guns.

 

Another update on Chris Kyle murder

Something has been bugging me about the report from the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram

The suspect, identified as Eddie Ray Routh, 25, was pursued to a house in Lancaster by officers, including a local SWAT team. Routh again try to flee in a vehicle but was stopped about 9 p.m. after spikes were laid across a road, Bryant said.

“The suspect has been caught and is in custody in Lancaster,” the sheriff said. Erath County sheriff’s investigators and Texas Rangers were securing a capital murder warrant, he said.

Witnesses told sheriff’s investigators that the gunman opened fire on the two men around 3:30 p.m., then fled in a pickup truck belonging to one of the victims. The sheriff’s department didn’t get a call until around 6 p.m.

Why the 2-and-a-half hour delay in the police getting a call? Something does not add up about that. Again, details are somewhat sketchy, and I am still looking, and re-reading everything I can find. More updates when I can 

 

Ah, in Liberal Fairy Tale Land no one ever kills anyone with a knife, a club, or any other weapon. People ONLY die if a gun is involved

I have enjoyed Jason Whitlock, a sports writer, I have enjoyed a number of his columns. I have not always agreed with his take, but, his latest piece, written in response to Javon Belcher’s murder and suicide is a perfect example of how Liberals live in an alternate reality.

I would argue that your rationalizations speak to how numb we are in this society to gun violence and murder. We’ve come to accept our insanity. We’d prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that the second amendment somehow enhances our liberty rather than threatens it.

How many young people have to die senselessly? How many lives have to be ruined before we realize the right to bear arms doesn’t protect us from a government equipped with stealth bombers, predator drones, tanks and nuclear weapons?

Our current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.

In the coming days, Belcher’s actions will be analyzed through the lens of concussions and head injuries. Who knows? Maybe brain damage triggered his violent overreaction to a fight with his girlfriend. What I believe is, if he didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

See, ONLY guns are used to commit murder. Whitlock just KNOWS that if belcher had not had a gun, he would never have stabbed his girlfriend, or strangled her, or beat her to death with a tire iron because in Whitlock’s world, that NEVER happens. If not for guns, well  all violence would stop I suppose. Ah, but that fantasy is not the only one that exists in the mind of Whitlock

That is the message I wish Chiefs players, professional athletes and all of us would focus on Sunday and moving forward. Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.

But we won’t. We’ll watch Sunday’s game and comfort ourselves with the false belief we’re incapable of the wickedness that exploded inside Jovan Belcher Saturday morning.

See, handguns NEVER enhance our safety. Whitlock knows this because, well, he wants it to be that way. Of course, when I stepped into the alley behind the restaurant I ran in 1998, Jason Whitlock was not there to defend me from the thug hiding behind the fire escape. Neither was any other Liberal. But for that Colt .45 I had, I would have been a victim. Years before I was born, my grandmother answered a knock at her screen door. A man claiming to work for the phone company said he needed to check her phone. She told him no, and he proceeded to come through the door. And you know what, Jason Whitlock, was not there, but my grandfathers rifle was, and her pointing that rifle at the would be intruder seemed to have a stark impact on that intruders mindset. Just last week, in Grand Prairie, Texas, a few miles from where I live, a thug decided to break into a home there. Was Jason Whitlock and his moral outrage there to stop him. No, but, the homeowners 40 caliber handgun was, and it was the thug that was shot, not the homeowner.

So, perhaps Mr. Whitlock should do a bit of research into defensive gun uses. Of course, that would require a bit of thinking, rather than emoting, that might be too much for Whitlock.

 

 

Liberals want more gun control. Why? So more of America can be like Chicago and New York?

Great point by Bill Quick

» 19 murders overnight in Obama’s home town of Chicago – Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

19 people were shot in Chicago between Thursday evening and Friday morning, with 13 of the 19 shot in a span of just 30 minutes. Chicago’s murder rate has gone up 31 percent since 2011 when Mayor Rahm Emanuel was elected.

Balance this against the ocean of publicity that will now be focused on a relatively minor (in terms of deadliness) shooting that will get all that publicity because it occurred in a NYC landmark. And then keep in mind that these two cities share some of the strictest gun-grabbing laws in the nation.

BINGO! Of course, we know what the Left really wants, for us to be more like Australia

Cops, Witnesses Back Up George Zimmerman’s Version – ABC News

Two police reports written the night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin said that Zimmerman had a bloody face and it looked like his nose was broken. Two witnesses appear to back up Zimmerman’s version of being on his back and beaten by Martin.

 Notice how the media is still playing the  Zimmerman is guilty angle. The report repeats that Martin was “unarmed” several times. They just cannot help themselves. ABC News also reports that Martin had THC in his system.

The teen, who lived in Miami, was in Sanford while serving a suspension for a bag of marijuana being discovered in his possession. Martin had THC, the drug found in marijuana, in his blood on the night of his death, according to the autopsy. His family told ABC News that it was “trace amounts” of THC.

As the truth begins to emerge about George Zimmerman one question needs to be asked

Will the race pimps step up and apologize? No, of course not! They will just manufacture another hate crime and start beating their drums of racial division again. But, I do hope the media, at least, is as vocal about reporting the facts as they were about making the story they wanted. H’T Wizbang

The race baiters and race pimps, the gullible and the easily led, and the Obama administration in particular, aren’t going to be delighted by what Reuters has found out about George Zimmerman:

On February 26, George Zimmerman shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in what Zimmerman says was self-defense. The furor that ensued has consumed the country and prompted a re-examination of guns, race and self-defense laws enacted in nearly half the United States.

During the time Zimmerman was in hiding, his detractors defined him as a vigilante who had decided Martin was suspicious merely because he was black. After Zimmerman was finally arrested on a charge of second-degree murder more than six weeks after the shooting, prosecutors portrayed him as a violent and angry man who disregarded authority by pursuing the 17-year-old.

But a more nuanced portrait of Zimmerman has emerged from a Reuters investigation into Zimmerman’s past and a series of incidents in the community in the months preceding the Martin shooting.

Based on extensive interviews with relatives, friends, neighbors, schoolmates and co-workers of Zimmerman in two states, law enforcement officials, and reviews of court documents and police reports, the story sheds new light on the man at the center of one of the most controversial homicide cases in America.

You’ll need to read the whole thing, then pass it on.

Yes pass this on, especially to those who rushed to judgement

Alan Dershowitz on Zimmerman affidavit

let us just say that Dershowitz is not impressed, at all. He makes the case that this is about politics, and I think he is correct H/T Donald Douglas

William Jacobson has more on another popular “fact” about this case. That whole Zimmerman said “coons” business? Not so fast

One of hotest topics of argument has been whether George Zimmerman said “f-ing coons” under his breath on the 911 tape.  The left-blogosphere has used the alleged racial epithet endlessly to paint this as a racially motivated hate crime.

CNN used three different audio experts to analyze the tape, but one of whom found “f-ing coons,” another “f-ing cold,” and another “f-ing punks.”

In the Affidavit of Probable Cause, which just was made available, State of Florida investigators swore under oath that Zimmerman used the term “f-ing punks”:

For the investigators to make such a factual assertion under oath in such an important document certainly means the prosecution has conducted its own analysis and has concluded that the term “coons” was not used.

Great point that if the prosecution is saying this then…… Of course, the Left will continue to use the lie, you can count on that.

One more thing here. To me the press conference that came out during Angela Corey’s press conference.

First is that I am certain that this is a move to bow to political pressure. I am so certain because of this comment from Corey

“We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition. We prosecute based on the facts of any given case, as well as the laws of the state of Florida.

Translation? Of course this is ALL about bowing to public pressure

Next is how giddy Corey looked during her press conference. To me this raises the questions about her credibility. I really hate to think that Corey would bring charges just to help her political career, but politics breeds cynicsm in me

The Selective Outrage Syndrome of the Left

Are some Black deaths more equal than others?

I want justice for Trayvon Martin. But even more than that, I want an end to the slaughter of the many blacks for whom there were no mass protest demonstrations or rabid news media coverage.

Justice demands that George Zimmerman, Martin’s killer, get his day in court. But it also cries out for an even greater showing of outrage for the thousands of black men and women whose murders have rarely gotten more than fleeting notice in a local newspaper. And that’s a crying shame.

While blacks are just 12.6% of the nation’s population, they’re roughly half of people murdered in this country each year. The vast majority of these killings are at the hands of other blacks.

If that doesn’t shock you, maybe this will: More blacks were murdered in the USA in 2009 alone than all the U.S.troops killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to date.

Now that really makes me want to holler. But this painful truth hasn’t produced the kind of sustained national outrage that Martin’s death at the hands of a white Hispanic has generated. Why such a parsing of contempt? Maybe the people who’ve taken to the streets to protest Martin’s killing don’t care as much about the loss of other black lives because those killings don’t register on the racial conflict meter. Or maybe they’ve been numbed by the persistence of black-on-black carnage.

Be sure to read it all. I think it is clear what is behind this. And it proves my point that the Left gives not one damn about Blacks except as political pawns. Yes, that sounds ugly, but, really, what other logical conclusions can we draw here?

Those sly media types UPDATED Below! Update, the photo is NOT Trayvon Martin

UDATE!! Some commentors are telling me that the image below of the bare chested young man is NOT Trayvon Martin. Not sure if that is correct, but,I thought everyone should know

UPDATE!! I have removed the photo that was not Martin, my apologies to the Martin family. I am leaving the post up because the media IS using the two photos below to paint the two men in the light they wish to

In the effort, and it is a very transparent effort, to elevate Tayvon Martin to sainthood,while demonizing George Zimmerman,the media has chosen to present photos of the two in an interesting fashion. Not content to simply label Zimmerman a “gunman” or the “shooter” or to call the killing of Martin a “murder” despite the fact that Zimmerman has not even been charged, much less convicted. The media is even playing the Lynch Zimmerman card by the photos they choose to show of the two.

Here is the picture of Zimmerman we are being shown, note the orange jumpsuit.


Here is the Trayvon Martin photo

Note that this pic is several years old. Why is the media trying to show the “victim” in the best possible light,and the “shooter” in the worst. Doesn’t this make you wonder if they have an agenda?

Things that make you go hmmm.
