Not A Hate Crime?

  • A video of a Chicago activist removing a Trump sign has generated thousands of views and prompted police in one suburb to issue a statement explaining why they did not charge him with sign theft.

    Jedidiah Brown posted a video on Facebook on Oct. 18 showing him removing the large sign from an unspecified location and placing it in the back of his car.

    "I think this it is my duty as a citizen of the United States of America," Brown says to the camera as he pulls his car over and walks toward the Trump-Pence sign. "I'm clearly in a predominantly white area because that would never roll on the South Side of Chicago."
And if we go to the Illinois Compiled Statutes:
  • (720 ILCS 5/12-7.1)(from Ch. 38, par. 12-7.1)
    Sec. 12-7.1. Hate crime.

    (a) A person commits hate crime when, by reason of the actual or perceived race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or national origin of another individual or group of individuals, regardless of the existence of any other motivating factor or factors, he commits assault, battery, aggravated assault, misdemeanor theft, criminal trespass to residence, misdemeanor criminal damage to property, criminal trespass to vehicle, criminal trespass to real property, mob action, disorderly conduct, harassment by telephone, or harassment through electronic communications...
Well, the Tribune has the video up. We're sure it's available to the Northfield Police Department, as well as the State's Attorney. The perpetrator posted it on his social media site.

So.....why no charges again? It's right there in black and white.

I can see nothing but black on the video, but if he was removing trash from the public way I don't see the problem. In fact, the person who put it there would have been doing it illegally.

Didn't you get the memo? Only whites can hate. Only whites are racist, and only whites ooze with white privilege. Black and brown folks are pure, and victims, and have no power/privilege; therefore, they cannot hate or commit hate crimes.

Northfield PD doesn't want to offend anyone after the media circus with thug Chief Keef last summer. And they're too busy running radar on Willow Road!

He needs to be charged! You can't pick and choose who gets charged and not charged, that is unless you are a filthy democrat. Laws for different people I guess. When will it ever end?

Another case of black privilege. Don't worry, white people won't insist you be incarcerated so you can do what you want with impunity. Don't forget, if you get caught holler about how it's racist and watch the white people cower in fear of the word "racist".

And the worst part is the residents won't blame the States' Attorney, they blame the police instead.

This activist is a "Reverend" as well.
He also works for some security firm that the uniform looks like a cpd uniform and their bullet proof vest says "police" on the back.
Go to his fb page and look at his pictures and videos.

I know a lot of people who won't put up Trump signs becauce they are afraid they will will get their windows broken. Thug politics like the Nazis of the 1930's.

I talked to my some of black neighbors and they can't stand Clinton and think Trump has a lot of good ideas. He just has to tone is down and listen to other mainstream Republicans.

If Clinton does win it will be by massive vote fraud.

Anyone investigating that?

If you're trespassing and stealing Trump signs,
or assaulting Trump supporters at a rally, the
Libune calls you an "activist."

Where I live on the north side a neighbor keeps posting on a neighborhood blog that for the fourth time now his Trump sign was stolen off his front lawn. He keeps replacing it immediately. Many neighbors comment that he is a terrible person to support Trump in the first place. Once again you can say or support anyone you want as long as they're andemocrat. This country is going to shit quickly folks. And those in charge are adding fuel to the fire. You may not like Trump or things he has said and done but if you think Hilary Clinton has anything but her own self interest and that of the people who have protected her and Bill for the past thirty years then you are sadly mistaken. They are going to spend and giveaway the store to a point that and middle class family may as well quit their kids and jump on board. College tuition free if you make less then $125 household income per year. I would say that's at least 85% of police families if not more. So why the get free tuition you and me are paying $20k and up a year for tuition. That's just one example. We can all see insurance is going to skyrocket. So between educating our children and paying insurance, god forbid you should get sick or need surgery, there is barely enough left over to pay a mortgage and drive a car. Guess what though they're housing is free or subsidized and now want to live in "nice" neighborhoods not the south and west side. So when your neighbor forecloses because he can't keep up they're going to put section eight in those houses and the people who live there will go to the same schools as your kids, same hospitals as you, not work and pay nothing for any of it while you and your wife work 40+ hours a week to pay the bills. Think I'm crazy? It's happening already folks. Pay attention middle class have no choice but to vote for Trump or there will be no middle class in 8 years.

All he said was he's in a white neighborhood. He didn't say he's taking the sign because those who placed the sign are white (which, although presumed true in Northfield, cannot be proven) or hates Trump because he's white. He said you wouldn't see a Trump sign in a black neighborhood. Which also shows his stupidity, because I have plenty of black colleagues who support Trump.

Sorry, it's a real stretch to say it's a hate crime.

Compstat? Is that you?

I guess it was just found property. Nothing to see here. This doesn't interfere with elections. Just like those little scuffles at the last Trump rally were just over enthusiastic Trump supporters. Hillary and the DNC had nothing to do with paying Democrat Thugs to attack Trump and his supporters.

Ignore the crime.

Crime is down. Crime is Down! CRIME IS DOWN!!!

Political signs can be posted on the public way and it's illegal to remove them before the election.
I don't agree with this, btw, but it's the law.

Agreed Trump represents hope and change, you know how crazy things are when even a guy like Louis Farrakan who many intelligent blacks respect is endorsing Trump, maybe this man is sane after all, this is really ground breaking. Blacks need to vote Trump their neighborhoods are devastated, the black children are being shot in the street, no jobs but yet they (the dumb people) vote democratic!

The theft of which is a class A misdemeanor. 720 ILCS 5/16-1(b)(1) covers “[t]heft of property not from the person and not exceeding $500 in value.” Whether it’s a small yard sign or a big one, if its value is below $500, the same statute applies. Under state law, you cannot touch another candidate’s signs for any reason. Even if they are illegally placed, you must call that campaign and have them come out and remove it.

Defend your property and see who's the bad guy and who's the "victim"
If you don't recall, this is the asshole who stormed the stage at The TRUMP Rally at UIC Pavillion, engaging in physical violence with police.
Anyone involved or injured by actions of with this moron or his maniac antics should sue him and his inciting employer - Democratic Party operative Robert Creamer (linked directly to Hillary Clinton) and the co-founder of the Democracy Partners consulting group.

No penalty for Democrats.

VOTE TRUMP for Law and Order.

For that to happen, people would have to actually like Hillary enough to display her sign in their yard.
