Hate Crimes not Equal

What's gotten into the Tribune lately? Has Col. McCormick risen from the grave? Has someone sprinkled roach powder on the editorial staff?

Sunday, they cover the Christian/Newsom murders in Knoxville, probably the first of the mainstream media outlets to do so (The New York Times sill hasn't).

Today, John Kass addresses the disparity in media coverage when roles are reversed.
  • I've been in this business long enough to know that we tap dance around such stories, hesitant, uncomfortable, insecure, vulnerable to an in-house charge of racism for reinforcing ugly stereotypes.

    By contrast, hateful white-on-black crime is easy to report as a cultural event. We're secure in it, eager, because we all know our parts as acolytes in the rigidly defined ritual, the victims, reporters, commentators, even the consumers of the news.

    Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton appear to carry the story forward. They know their roles and play them well. The cameras click. Editors dispatch think pieces on race in America. TV talking heads offer commentary and what are called "town meetings" and "national conversations on race." Special-interest advocates use the media time to argue for racial preferences in academic admissions and hiring. Politicians mouth their platitudes. Editorials chant conventional wisdom.
As cops, we're in the prime seats to observe this drama first hand. And we're sure it contributes to bunches of stereotypes, animus, and feeds various feelings towards all people. We're surprised the Tribune, so recently sliding and rolling around in the liberal mud, even approached these subjects at all.

Note: comments will be heavily regulated for this post

While they are finally telling this story, they are NOT telling us what really happened, what these savages really did to these two victims. When you hear the details, there's no way a thinking man could say that this was anything other than a hate crime. Yet the prosecutors down there refuse to call it that.

SCC it has been like that for years! Why? We don't have a white sharpton or jackson! No one speaks out except if your black and the offender is white then it is a big deal right? Liberalism in this country is causing such a huge downtrend in moral values! wrong is now right and right is now wrong! Look at daley he is for paying huge sums of our money to illegals, people don't want to work so they get free health care, free schools, free link, free cheese, etc.. When will a leader arise to stop all this liberal shit? If osama obama or clinton gets elected GOD HELP ALL OF US!

This case is horrible but if you really want to get outraged, read Mary Mitchell's veiled dismissal that this wasn't a Hate crime, it was just a horrible murder; just like the other hundreds of murders that occur in urban areas.

What she misses, due to her racial bias against caucasians, is that there is a reticence to report on crimes involving "persons of color".

How many times do you see or hear a story in the press about a crime and the offender's race isn't even mentioned? When you see that you can be sure that the perp is black or hispanic. As soon as a n offender is identified as white, his photo appears alongside the story.

Now Mary Mitchell is saying that the "facts" of the case are being distorted and fabricated. She says that this is because ... are you ready for this? ... the "embellishments" of the story are a function of "white supremist rants."

When that white kid with the heart condition was targeted, beaten and robbed in Beverly last year, the offenders said that they picked him because he was a "goofy looking white-boy" - the press had a field day with that and bent over backwards to take the offender's side of the story in order to dismiss it as a "hate crime".

Again, if 3 white teens had beaten and robbed a black kid in Kennedy park, Jesse and Al would have been at the kid's bedside, holding his hand for a photo op and then holding candlelight vigils all around the neighborhood.

People like Mitchell want us all to suspend our common sense, experience and intelligence and just accept their word that this wasn't a Hate crime.

This is exactly why Hate Crime laws are utter bull shit and aren't worth the paper they're printed on!

Dear White People,

Please don't ever think about standing up for yourselves, because I will ensure that I come up with some crafty way to rap and ryhme and make it sound like y'alls rascist.

This job clearly demonstrates "not equal" in the workplace. There are two rules, one for them white polices and another for my peoples wearing the uniform. While we don't have to do nothing and not worry about supervisors saying anything to us, them white boys gotta pick up all the slack for the rest of us. Meanwhile, make sure you play by the ever changing rules that Daley changes every time the media gets a bug up his ass!

So y'all white police make sure you police the neighborhoods only when WE want you here. Be responsible for raising our babies, picking up the slack, listening to our women domesticating and be nice and courteous cuz we'all know that number to OPS woo woo. And don't shoot no po boys carrying no pistols in a loving shoot out with his daddy. Y'all assassinated this po baby!

At least y'all don't have no voice helping yo peoples or I finna be outta a job.

Just another brotha,
Jessie

My fellow officers,

We need to immobilize the no driver's license no insurance pieces of s***. TVB and TOW. Don't let these assholes feel entitled to drive wherever they want. Take they rides! Come on. We're the police!
Don't do this for your boss, for the city,for revenue. Do it for your Fraternal Brothers. When we're at home, how many shitheads do you see driving their no plated ghetto rides thru Cicero Avenue in Sauganash? How bout 111th ST? The kicker: Harlem and Northwest Highway? I bet not one has insurance. Let's send a message! I'm a rocks and bloz guy, but when it come to a man's ride, it's got to go. When I'm in 011 and some gangsta says "But I works" I don't give a crap. Car goes. I'm a no clout P.O. All I want is MY neighborhood nice. Let's not leave it all up to 016 and 008 or 022, let's clean up the mess by taking the ride!
EQUAL TREATMENT!!

In all fairness, Kass also mentions how he has written about how blacks (including black cops) have been victimized by whites.

As a black man and black cop, I have read some of the vitriolic comments by those that I can only assume are my white "brother" cops who seem to have an unconscionable hatred for those who live in "ghettos" or on the "west" or "south" sides of the city.

I can point to more crimes in United States history against blacks by whites. But what is the point? The killing of the Tennessee couple was extremely awful. We should be more concerned about justice for the victims as opposed to the color of the skin of the criminals that committed the act.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton DO NOT represent the views of all black people in this country, but if you read the many racially tinged comments on this blog from throughout the last year, it would appear as if my allegedly intelligent "fraternal brothers and sisters" think that this is so. Where is your common sense?

The killing of innocent people is criminal and heinous regardless of the color of the face of the victims or the offenders.

As police officers, we should stop falling into the traps set by the media, unscrupulous politicians and the impotent race baiters - of any race.

Why aren't the police in this city respected by the citizens, "da mare," the media and many politicians? Because instead of abiding by that oath we took as cops (I took it in class 90-1B), we let misguided people guide us and we allow stupidity, stereotypes and color guide our emotions and decisions.

We could set a prime example of racial solidarity centered around a common goal in this city. Instead our relatives are considered as being apart of the "animals" and other nasty terms that "my fellow cops" use.

Kass speaks the truth and points out wrongdoing where it occurs. I thought that was what we all were supposed to do when we signed on to be "da police."

Perhaps if we were to focus more on righting wrongs as opposed to pointing fingers to make a political or racial statement, we would be better off as a profession.

It ain't rocket science. But it takes a dose of common sense. "Stupid is as stupid does."

How about we go back to showing support for victims (regardless of where they live in the city) and putting criminals - of any race - under the jail? Seems to me we were better off then.

Off Topic: Yesterday marked the 24th murder of a Chicago Public School student this year due to gunfire. The Slum-Times covers this tragedy on the front cover of today's paper.

For some reason, all political, the "poverty pimps," Daley, Starks and CPS believe that goverment intervention and gun control will extinguish this social problem. Once again, they are so wrong.

This problem, along with every other socail ill that plagues society, and is magnified in minority communities, can be solved by campaigning for strong families. Yes, I mean a mother and father in a committed relationship raising, educating and loving their children...not the government.

With Feminism and the Welfare State, so many minorities women were duped into believing that they did not need a man to raise a child. And now we see that they were wrong. If we look at the U.S. jail and prison system we would find an alarming number of inmates without fathers. I'd be willing to bet that both the victim and offender(s) in the CPS anaylsis would also come from homes without a father.

Poverty Pimps, the problem is a lack of fathers, not guns. Start promoting "No Child till Marriage and 30" and watch murder rates decline, education rates rise, poverty decreases. Tell people NOT to have kids unless they are going to raise them, NOT me and the government. But then again, that doesn't fit your agenda.

It is good to see that the Tribune is starting to "get it". We all know that black on white hate crimes are underreported and basically ignored by the mainstream media. Wonder how many homicides, robberies, and sexual assaults where the offender is black and the victim white are actually hate crimes? I bet more than you think.

Hate Crimes? Are there such things as Love Crimes? Like Crimes? Tolerable Crimes? Crime is crime. Whether you attack a stranger or someone you know, if you commit a crime you are a criminal. You have violated the social contract and should be punished. White on black, black on white, black on black, black on rye. Why the differenciation? An asshole is an asshole no matter their ethnic or racial makeup.

We need to stop all the bullshit, pussy footin' around the reality of this world in which we live: bad people prey on the weak.

I've seen my share of crime and injustice but the fact remains the same; the brutha is beat down and vuleranble because his community tells him to be. Chris Rock said it best, "The difference between rich and wealthy...Shaq is rich. The guy who signs his check is wealthy." Having money and keeping money are two differnet things.

If your community lives for the moment, tomorrow has no purpose. There is no such thing as a 'future' in the black community. Live in the now and worry about later, later. If I'm wrong my eyes have been diluted from all the shit on the west side. My bad...

I personally think the whole concept of "hate crimes" laws are silly.

If I beat, shoot or rape someone there are laws to deal with that. Trying to speculate on motivation is silly.

As for the media covering crime they did an ok job of covering the Ryan Rausch beating in Beverly last year. Which was black on white. Although I had to email Mary Mitchell in the Sun Times and explain to her that the area west of Western in Beverly is not "upper class".

What I would like to see is some reporter asking a "reverend" why they may march after many police involved shootings, yet seldom march after any one of the hundreds of non police related shootings.

Cops shoot one person and the term genocide and racial cleansing are bandied about. What about the hundreds of other shootings that result in death?

HMMMMMM.

Media heavily to blame for this racial disparity. Compare the coverage that results from a Lincoln Park rape to one that happens in Englewood. On the North Side, you get "team coverage" that lasts for days -- from the point of attack to the following day to the inevitable "self defense" courses that happen days later. In Englewood, you may get some coverage, but nothing on the scale of up north. TV outlets really ought to be ashamed of themselves for this blatant bias. But no one has called them out on it in any way that will change thier behavior.

If one were to believe the media, our politician, and our reverends, you would think that the A/2 Detectives under Jon Burge never arrested and charged a guilty offender. I think it is beyond belief that this is the case.

What is the first thing any defense lawyer does when he has a looser case, he cries brutality. Doesn't have to prove a thing, only muddy the waters.

The "reader" tried to do the same thing to Det. Kato at A/4 but thank God they didn't have much sucess because the allegations were such bullcrap.

this post reminds me of the time about 8 or 9 months ago that the older Danish (white) physicist was attacked on the green line in 15, resulting in at least one fracture. This guy was doing nothing but going back to his hotel in Oak Park when he was jumped on by at least one M/1 who was screaming something about how white people should stay out of his neighborhood. The offender's violent actions coupled with his statements clearly qualified this as a hate crime. The beat car that took the report was told by supervisors and the A/5 dicks to not classify it as a hate crime despite the obvious racial element. If the visiting physicist had been from Nigeria and the offender(s) were white shitheads on the blue line in 16 would the A/5 dicks and this departments supervisors had come to the same decision? I don't think I have to answer that question.

A note sent to Howard Witt of the Chgo. Tribune for his work on the "Hate Crime" issue for the kidnapping and murder of the white couple in Tennesee by the 4 African Americans:

Howard,

As a 14 year veteran of the Chicago Police Dept. and being a witness of the aftermath in many homicide scenes around some of the most violent areas of the city, I commend you on your reporting on this sensitive issue. Granted in this large city we read mostly about "gang related" murders but every once in a while you get a murder or an aggravated battery that is out of the ordinary. From the perspective of the average citizen "race" issues can be debated. People say things like the poor African American community is "oppressed" or kept down. I would contest that but for fear of some sort of this retort "blowing up in my face".

I believe the underlying issue is the political aspect of this problem and on one end you have "the reverends" and on the other end you have the Ku Klux Klan. But in the middle you have a lot of problems starting with jealousy then ending with hate. Whites would not want blacks in their neighborhood but blacks wouldn't want whites in theirs.

Generally, the police "everywhere" and I don't care where or what town you are in, see the "reality" that is never reported or even touched on by the newspapers or media. The police basically think at least in this big City that the media "caters" to what sells and who is speaking out and what bits and pieces of the real truths they may gather even though the real story is never released by the police here while the crime is being investigated. With this being said the consensus at times is that the police feel slighted and misunderstood. The Police and Fire by their general orders are not allowed to comment on a case or any crime without department approval. Our Department does nothing to cover us at least that is the feeling due to fear of the Media. We always end up looking "real bad" on TV and the papers to the average joe. I get embarrassed to tell people I am the police out in my circuit due to bad press.

Getting back to the hate crimes or racial tensions that are issues, one needs not to go any further than any yuppie area of this city. What do the police see? Well how about the fact that a large percentage of police families would never want to live nor raise a family around let's say Wrigley Field area. That is a "soft" area to do police work in, considering our many "ghettos" so it should be nice, not necessarily.

The average yuppie just figures that the wandering black homeless and young black males that inter mingle with their everyday activity, is just like downtown or its City living, or it comes with the territory and one yuppie would say, "Wow I really live in Chicago now". Well the average police know different. We see yuppies as their own problems, they are nothing but naive victims and we laugh to ourselves as they spend numerous amounts of money to live amongst supposed ex-murderers, arsonists, rapists, burglars and thieves. Police statistics can be hidden and unreported to support the growing and evolving neighborhoods so these yuppies buy the town homes and condos. But most police on the job know different.

Example: How about that nice black female that everyone gave a dollar to daily at the corner or in the hallway of their "nice " apartment building or in the alley. Well she just burned the apartment down killing a couple of her donors in Wrigleyville. Is she nuts? Is she secretly happy about her vindictive deed? Who knows but I know where I live and who my neighbors are and if I saw someone like her in my area I would call the police for fear of her being suspicious to my neighborhood. A name check may be done as police encounter her or maybe a well being check to determine if she needed to go to a hospital for "mental reasons". When you live in a transient area nobody cares about anybody nor does anybody really consider anyone else.

This is an example of just one thing, but what about the "robberies and burglaries" from the wandering unknowns that prey on the "naive" and believe me ex-cons and street wise folks know who is "naive". Is there any racial thought put into their victimization? I would say yes to you but not get on the TV and debate it. Common sense here is an issue, ask most "ghetto police or even fire personnel". We get attacked as much as the average yuppie or out of towner or lost soul downtown. Yes there is "hatred" involved when we get involved as a victim to a battery of a peace officer or fireman. THEY HATE US in the ghetto! But we are the first ones they call. 911 and OPS are on their speed dials of their cell phones, THEY LOVE AND HATE US! Both police and fire.

That is not the issue in my neighborhood. Respect for the neighbors and their kids, that is the primary feeling in a nice neighborhood and then respect for police and fire and their jobs. Most of us listened in drivers education class to pull to right for the sirens and lights. Not true in some neighborhoods. Is this disrespectful or ignorance?

Racial issues: Are they angry? Do they hate? Are they victims? Do we create excessive programs for them that cost taxpayers? Do they work? Can they work? Will they work? Is drug dealing, stealing and doing nothing easier? Is it the white folks fault? Is it the police and fire's fault? Is it their fault?

I believe opportunity dictates the crime and the hatred comes from within whether its white on black or black on white. Will it ever rectify? Can it be corrected or healed? Do we get involved or just avoid it and ignore it? Will these issues get someone elected or demoted or fired? Will you get killed or live? Can you move away from it and get out?

Well the last question is an big issue for most City workers and especially for police and fire but not an answer as for racial tension as far as I know!

This fool stated, "It's sad that adults care more about their right to keep and bare arms than the safety of their children." WHAT A JACKASS!! We care about our kids that's why they won't be in a gang, out all night, and in school(mostly private schools because we care so much). The honest law biding adults don't shoot guns at people, don't sell their guns to criminals, and raise their children right. The criminals could care less about their right to keep and bare arms because they will carry guns with our without the 2nd ammendment or any law restricting guns. Remember guns are illegal in Chicago! THEY ARE CRIMINALS THE DON'T FOLLOW THE LAW! Arnie you are a fool! The ones doing all the shootings don't have FOID cards and never will.

WRONG! Look at DOJ statistics blacks commit far more crimes against whites than whites have committed against blacks. Also, blacks committ tons of crime against their own race. The reason you can point out so many of these white on black crimes is because they have been iluminated in the press and the history books.

Everyone was talking about "what they really did to these victims". What the did was vile and disgusting. But there was no penis removal, severing of her breast and she wasnt made to watch her boyfriend raped and killed.

Putting aside the question of whether the motivation behind a crime is relevant to the punishment for the crime, and sidestepping for now the contention that the details of the crime have been exaggerated as the story tours the internet, allow me to summarize newsroom judgement in a simple analogy:

"Dog bites man" - not news
"man bites dog" - news

I don't mean to characterize minorities as animals, because they are not. People should be judged by their behavior, not their color, and when they behave like murderous animals, they should be treated as such.

But basically, black-on-white crime is simply not rare, not uncommon, and thus not newsworthy.

Heinous crime deserving of the electric chair yes- but if you "know what really happened" - do tell. The only way TO know- is if you were there. You can find the coroners report on this.

One word. Perception. While I'm sure they do not speak for all, there is yet to be a black person to publicly tell them to shut it. Panther Rush, or Jessie, or Al, or naming a street after a black "activist", draws NO criticism from blacks, at least PUBLICLY. THAT fuels perception that this is representative of most blacks. Same reason white kids in the burbs wear crooked hats, neck chains, and have their pants down to their calves...to emuulate all that YOUR culture has allowed to be portrayed in the media. Other than Tiger Woods, Oprah, the Huxtables, which have been off the air for longer than many of our kids habe been alive, name me ONE POSITIVE BLACK ARTIST that our kids will actually have access to... If the majority of black folk do not agree with those that are speaking on behalf of all black folk, then you have let a few set the perception. If Jessie and Bobby and Al keep marching for only black victims, if Mitchell keeps typing her hate, and if 50 cent keeps glorifying killing black kids, calling women hoes, and there is NO PUBLIC OBJECTION FROM BLACKS, then WHAT ARE WHITES TO THINK?

Here's one for you: Sources claim that a young special education teacher was brutally raped in a parking lot at the University of Illinois-Chicago a few weeks back.

The savage offender, in addition to "getting some ass," severly beat his victim who was hospitalized for several days.

I have not heard a single word of this crime in the media! If I missed the story, please enlighten me. I do know this: If a rape takes place in Lincoln Park it becomes a 7 minute fluff piece complete with interviews of stupid young women donning head phones while walking alone and the police sketch of the male offender who is either white, black or Hispanic (we never are told).

If you have a family member that works or attends school at UIC or even in the nearby Medical District then you should be mad as hell for not hearing anything about this story! Has the community alert been issued? Sources also claim that there has yet to be a follow up by the Dicks.

Any 12th district Rangers or A/4 personnel, please advise. Thanks.

Oh yeah, by the way, this was a black on white crime. That's my tie-in.

Enough is enough!!! I don't want to read any more postings in which offenders are referred to as "animals!" This is libelous to members of the animal community. Animals don't shoot each other, rob each other or abuse their kids!!! The worst thing an animal might do is to throw feces at you in the baboon house at Brookfield Zoo.

Besides that, call these offenders what they really are: "monsters." A monster will assault you. A monster will rob you. A monster will scare you. Typically a monster will commit these acts in tandem with other monsters.

As it should be, there are no "hate crime" statutes on the books in Tennessee or Kansas. A hate motive is extraneous to the successful prosecution of a capital murder case. You can't execute the condemned twice!

I have no objections for an escalated penalty for crimes other than capital murder which are substantively motivated by hate (i.e.: tagging a synagogue with swastikas). Otherwise, like "stricter gun laws", "hate crime laws" are nothing more than part of the repertoire of proselytizing, mealy-mouthed politicians like da Mare.

Based on the explicit details of the Christian-Newsom murders and "the Wichita Massacre", these atrocities were inherently and substantially motivated by racial animus. RES IPSA LOQUITUR (the thing speak for itself). In both outrages, torture is manifest hatred.

As in Chicago, cowardly politicians exert control over the media spin in such heinous and unspeakable atrocities. Do you really think that local politicians wouldn't silence a truthful police spokesperson or a prosecutor who publicly declared that these crimes involved deep racial hatred?

Subsequently, the mainstream national media (MSM) will not even consider that racial hatred was involved because the police are less than forthcoming. Ergo, aside from local coverage, the MSM will insist that the crime isn't "newsworthy". MSM would insist that each defendant sign an affidavit stating that "I hate honky, cracker white muthafuckers." It ain't gonna happen.

Conversely, the entire planet was subjected to a relentless, year-long barrage of sustained coverage of the tragic and separate murders of James Byrd, Jr. (Jasper, TX) and Matthew Shepard (Laramie, WY), all by the New York Times and its MSM ilk.

Furthermore, the condescending MSM inexorably insult our intelligence by suppressing coverage of violent interracial crimes between strangers in which more than ninety percent of the predators are black. It's just FACT. We realize that no group suffers the scourge of black violence more than decent, law-abiding blacks.

My kudos to the Tribune for having the integrity and courage to publish an unbiased report in these "politically correct" times.

It's most unfortunate that Americans must learn of such sadistic hate from the Internet, including the incendiary invective of wackos at white supremacist Web sites.

Before the MSM returns to the insipid plights of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, may God bless the souls of Channon Christian, Chris Newsom, Jason Befort, Heather Muller, Aaron Sander, Brad Heyka and Ann Walenta.

How many times do you see or hear a story in the press about a crime and the offender's race isn't even mentioned? When you see that you can be sure that the perp is black or hispanic. As soon as a n offender is identified as white, his photo appears alongside the story.

No kidding---they'll say "the offender is 20 years old with a medium complexion." WTF?? Isn't race a major identifying factor? What is going on??

Memo to 6/13/2007 09:21:00 AM

The last time the FBI had enough stones to publish true crime statistics black on white crime was almost 7 times as great as the reverse. Calendar year 1983, I believe. If you’re referencing crimes against blacks back in the days of slavery get over it. Many a white man died in the Civil War to allow Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. The 400-year slavery clip is getting pretty old. Let’s get real and admit that almost 66% of all Part I crime is perpetrated by 13% of the population. Quite a disparity I’d say. The dragging of a black man behind a car in Texas was a heinous crime, the killing of Emmitt Till was a heinous crime, the killing of these two kids was a heinous crime. It just seems the first two incidents received a tad more coverage. That’s all I have to say my brother. Wake up and grow up.

Off topic, but very important for Retirement Planning:

If, you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would
now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

If you had purchased $1000 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have $49.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank
all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND,
you would have $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily.

I don't believe there is as much racial biasis as you might think. I know that many blacks hate whites, but that is mostly the blacks who are spoonfed by the race baiters. It's easier to believe that they are victimized than to go out and get a job and pull yourself up. Why are black neighborhoods mostly ghettos and loaded with crime? Why can't blacks see what their Revs are doing to them and to society?

Definitely agree with that. I'm with ya on this. As P.O.'s we gotta step up and do or little fair share. It seems like one in three cars are suspended. I don't hesitate to hook the ride. Only problem is usually the car is "stolen" back from the police station before the city even dispatches the tow.

It's my absolute pleasure to ensure that driving is not a right in society, but a privelage. Let them cry racial profiling or whatever, cars gotta go.

FYI: For those that want to do sound impounds, the statute states sound audible by over 75 feet. Remember that the city light poles are spaced 100 feet apart (not that you'll ever get to testify!) It's as easy as 1,2,3 ANOV, impound form, then tow. Great probable cause for search of vehicle.

As well as the Liberal Media has tried to hypnotise us to believe that all white on black crime is a hate crime and black on hate crime is not. I think the public is finally realizing the media bias involved. This does not include those who watch Maury Povich "Who's the Baby's Daddy". They are all lost. There comes a point in society where the people demand justice. In the 60's it was civil rights. In the 2000's it is what is right. The tired old reverends can keep preaching hate against Whites but the new generation of Whites, who had no part in the civil rights movement, and are tired of being blamed for the Minorities problems will fight back. Enjoy your quotas and perks, they will not last long. I was born after the Civil Rights Movement. I did Nothing to anyone and I do Not like being blamed because of the Color of my skin.

The liberal news media make that bastard D.A. Nifong's persecution of the Duke lacrosse team players into an international cause celebre. Yet these arrogant, spineless turds ignore the Knoxville Horror.

Same with Hollywood. Did you ever notice in TV police shows, the worst violent predators are invariably depicted as white? Predictably, they then appear before a black judge. It's downright Orwellian.

Most Americans don't realize that the media and the entertainment industry are actively trying to brainwash this once great nation into oblivion.

If you make any truthful criticism of black on white crime, you're automatically branded as a racist by demagogues like Jackson and Sharpton.

Essentialy, politicians, particularly Democrats are despicable weasels. It's only getting worse.

To 6/13 9:21a.m. I am somewhat in agreement with you. As far as black or white P.O.'s, I see only blue. But I have a problem with your comment about "we should be more concerned about justice not the color of their skin." Of course we as police are always concerned about justice to thoes who deserve it, regardless of color, but there is a great double standered here when it comes to the media and black on white crimes. Remember this horrific incident occurred over six months ago, if not longer, and a very few percent of the population has heard of it. If 5 white people did this to a black couple it would be covered on more news outlets than the Paris Hilton saga and possibly on the level of the Iraq war. To this day we still hear about the black male(Byrd) who was killed in Texas by two white males and that incident occurred at least ten years ago.

Just the other day I was with my brother and his wife who are the same age as the couple that was killed and when I spoke of this incident they said they have never heard of it. I watch, read, and listen to a great deal of news and can't remember seeing this story on TV. Political correctness is destroying American slowly and in many different ways.

Using U.S. Justice Dept. data, the Tribune noted that in interracial violent crimes involving white and black strangers, only 90% of the nationwide victims are white. In Chicago, try 98% are the white victims of black offenders. It will be a cold day in Hell before Daley or police brass will acknowledge this sad FACT

As a black man and black cop, I have read some of the vitriolic comments by those that I can only assume are my white "brother" cops who seem to have an unconscionable hatred for those who live in "ghettos" or on the "west" or "south" sides of the city.

I can point to more crimes in United States history against blacks by whites. But what is the point? The killing of the Tennessee couple was extremely awful. We should be more concerned about justice for the victims as opposed to the color of the skin of the criminals that committed the act.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton DO NOT represent the views of all black people in this country, but if you read the many racially tinged comments on this blog from throughout the last year, it would appear as if my allegedly intelligent "fraternal brothers and sisters" think that this is so. Where is your common sense?
*-*-*-*-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

This is like what we've been hearing from the "moderate" Muslims who are "offended" by people branding them with the words "islamofacism".

"Do not put us all in the same category with the terrorists," they whine.

While not all Muslims are terrorists, All terrorists just happen to be Muslim.

Where am I going with this?

If the so called "moderates" would step up and publicly denounce the 10% of their "people" who are out killing, murdering and raping - then maybe we could have some sympathy for their plight. But they just go along and don't criticize their "brothers in allah" because, so they say, the Koran forbids one Muslim for criticizing another. I'd guess that the "moderates" secretly cheer every time an infidel gets butchered because it means that the duty of jihad has been achieved.

The same thing is going on in the "ghettos" - south and west sides - in that the residents don't want to get involved. They claim to be "good upstanding people" who happen to be in a "bad area" but then don't do anything about their plight except blame the police, the federal gov't, the city, .... everyone but themselves.

We see who and what does most of the crime in this city ... you'd have to be a moron not to. Is that racial profiling? Hell no - it's called "minimally observant!"

So stop waving your finger at us just because we criticize the bad elements of your "people" - why don't you get outraged at THEM and do something about the illegitimacy, drug abuse, violence, indolence, apathy and gang culture in those areas.

Let's get to the heart of the matter ... no one is mad at all blacks because of the Tennesse crime. Anger is direcxted at the media, who shuns the black on white story.

No one is mad at 'blacks' because gangbangers wears pants at their ankles ... anger is directed at the record industry and media, who ACTIVELY promote ghetto culture for the almighty $.

No cop becomes defensive of the cop who screws up terribly ...I simply get disgusted at JESSIE JACKSON and the media, who reliably exploit the situation.



RACIAL tension brews at least partially as a result of the third party ... be it JESSIE JACKSON, the media, or the FEDERAL GOV't.

It is the one-two punch that fuels the animous. The combination of the action (Crime, whatever) and the reflection of that action meant to deceive (the media ignoring said action).

JESSIE JACKSON, the silly, embarrassing U.S. television and print Media, and State Sponsored Affirmative Action are the culprits which throw gasoline on the fire.

This is all very obvious to me.

No one really hates the black who sells dope, but it turns to hate when the media defends him, it just gets to be too much. It is the 1-2 punch which cause such a reaction.

to 6/13/2007..9:21 am....my friend you are right,us as a profession should concentrate on arresting criminals of all colors,but lets not ignore some obvious facts,the liberal media loves to get ratings by pitting people against each other,i.e.rich vs. poor, black vs. white and the reason why the media does not have the balls to call this a hate crime because they are afraid of the protesting by the so called community activists i.e. sharpton,jackson. lets imagine if the roles were reversed,you would see protesting by community leaders,you would see marches and most importantly you would see town hall meetings telling white people how they are so racist! about the savage comment,i speak for a lot of p.os that it is not being refered to the senior citizen who has lived in the community for years and is being terrorized by young thugs who rob and deal drugs or the single mother whos working to support her kid. savage is refered to the behavior of some individuals in the community who shoot somebody in the head over a five dollar dice game or the boyfriend whose living in the house and having his way with the 13 year old daughter and mama is too "in love" to do anything. im sorry but this is savage behavior no matter what race or color. another fact the media currently ignores,black on black crime has done more destruction to the black community than white racism has done and thats a fact.to you and all my fellow officers out there be safe and remember when we wear this shirt we are all one color,blue!
