Innocent until proven guilty? No; trial by media

DEATH WISH? Media Draws Map to Home of Ferguson Police Officer Who Shot Mike Brown

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, August 16, 2014, 4:38 PM

CNN broadcast a report Friday that showed the house, including the street number, of the Ferguson police officer who police say shot Mike Brown. The officer has been in hiding due to death threats since the shooting last Saturday. His name, Darren Wilson, was just released Friday morning.

Another news outlet apologized for broadcasting video of Wilson’s home while others have virtually drawn a map to Wilson’s house for those bent on vengeance.

Yahoo News named the community Wilson where Wilson resides and published a photograph of the officer.

The UK Daily Mail also named the community, posted photos of the officer and gave a description of the house.

USA Today also named the community and reported a local police presence.

The Washington Post named the street where Wilson lives.

In the video report, CNN reporter Ed Lavandera is seen walking in the street where Wilson lives. The CNN video shows a wide view of Wilson’s house and then pans around the street to show its relative position in the neighborhood. While Lavandera does not name the street, he gives its approximate location.

Every news report says neighbors told them Wilson has not been home for several days.

Why would the media do this?

Easy: ratings.  And the prospect of even greater potential ratings.

“If it bleeds, it leads.”

Further, “if we can help it to bleed, we can help it to lead.”

Easy ratings, more advertising, more viewers, readers and revenue.  In one word: CASH.

One simple reason I have labeled our Fourth Estate the AMM, or American Media Maggots.

Because AMM are inherent Leftists (but will publicly eschew this common fact), they believe American Leftism is good, authority is bad, and that racists lie behind every door, woodpile and police department.  All blacks are victims, as are all minorities — but even that old saw is becoming a statistical falsehood as so-called “minorities” are soon to outnumber Caucasoids — who will soon themselves become a statistical minority.  What then?

The hope of the AMM is to render some kind of “reckoning” upon the police officer and bring about a vicarious “revenge” upon him from which the AMM can quickly and easily deny involvement.

“Innocent until proven guilty”?  Not if you are a law enforcement officer in a similar instance where — may I remind everyone — the facts are not yet all in, no matter what anyone may say.

As far as the American Media Maggots are concerned, and much of the global media in general, this officer is guilty.  They plan to assist in pushing him that direction via any means necessary.  Along the way, if that officer is somehow served a helping of “social justice” himself, no matter who it harms, then those are the breaks.

Locals are saying the officer simply drew his firearm and shot a young and innocent black man in the street, who was holding his arms up in abject surrender.

However, comparing the store robbery video to the clothing of Michael Brown would clearly indicate the robbery suspect and the person shot by Ferguson PD are one and the same.

Other information, little reported, also indicates the officer was fighting Michael Brown, as Brown tried to disarm the officer — and the fight moved at one point into the police vehicle itself.

As as officer myself, I can tell you one thing: anyone who attempts to disarm me by placing hands upon my firearm will be dealt with in the most grave fashion I can muster.  If I have to shoot them in the head or crash a concrete block onto their throat, as far as I am concerned — if you try to disarm me — the gloves are totally off.  There are no rules and it’s a fight for my life.  I don’t care who you are or the color of your skin or your age.  If I perceive you have the present capability and the intent to disarm me, things will not go well for you.  I will do my level best to ensure that.

In the meantime, according to the American Media Maggots: guilty as charged.  Only street justice required.

That officer, no matter the verdict or the facts, will never be able to live in his house or the city of Ferguson again.  Courtesy of the AMM.

Corruption from Demorat Nancy Pelosi: once AGAIN, her husband benefits

And, as is standard with Pelosi’s corruption, it involved the major fiscal benefit of her millionaire husband, Paul.

This is no different.  Uncovered and un-trumpeted by the American Media Maggots.

From the WashingtonFreeBeacon.com:

Pelosi Subsidies Benefit Husband’s Investment in Dem Mega-Donor’s Company

by Lachlan Markay

CEO donated to Pelosi, bundled for Obama, as Dem leader boosted his real estate holdings

The top Democrat in the House of Representatives steered more than a billion dollars in subsidies to a light rail project that benefitted a company run by a high-dollar Democratic donor and in which her husband is a major investor.

When cloud computing giant Salesforce sold a large plot of land to the Golden State Warriors in April, it had House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to thank for helping to swell real estate prices in the area.

Pelosi has worked for more than a decade to steer taxpayer funds to a light rail project in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, where Salesforce had planned a new campus. Experts say the project boosted the value of Mission Bay real estate.

The company’s CEO, Marc Benioff, is a high-dollar Democratic donor. Pelosi and her leadership PAC are among the recipients of his generous campaign contributions. Pelosi’s husband is also a major Salesforce investor.

The most important sentence: “PELOSI’S HUSBAND IS ALSO A MAJOR SALESFORCE INVESTOR.”

Follow the bread-crumbs and follow the corruption.  Translated: follow the Pelosis.

Question: did Nancy “marry up” or did Paul Pelosi “marry up”?

Paul Frank Pelosi (born April 15, 1940 in San Francisco) is an American businessman who owns and operates Financial Leasing Services, Inc., a San Francisco, California-based real estate and venture capital investment and consulting firm. In addition, he is the owner of the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.

And:

Pelosi’s office did not respond to questions about whether that might constitute a conflict of interest.

The Democratic leader’s investments in companies with business before the House came under intense scrutiny in 2011 and 2012 when Congress debated measures governing “insider trading” by members of Congress.

An eventual law imposing stricter regulations on members’ financial activities even included language informally dubbed the “Pelosi provision” due to her and her husband’s participation in IPOs of companies actively lobbying for or against federal legislation.

A tad bit more detail:

Two stops on the extended light rail line are about three blocks from a four-story office building owned by Paul Pelosi.

C’mon, that’s just an evil and random fragment of chance.

New app will keep you away from ‘sketchy’ areas; now considered “racist”

Smiling White Young Racists, Male and FemaleFirst, check SketchFactor.com.

This is now an “app” created for various smart phones, which was quantified as “SketchFactor — a community empowerment app for anyone, anywhere, at any time.

Then, with that in mind, consider the facts.  Because facts in and of themselves, these days, seem to be considered racist.

SketchFactor actually deigned to consider bad neighborhoods as bad, as criminally rife, and distinguished between areas of high crime and low crime.

By way of those terribly-racist statistics.

As Gawker.com portrayed:

Launching on Friday, SketchFactor allows users to report on, read about and navigate around potentially unsafe neighborhoods.

Almost every New Yorker has had that moment: finding oneself on a strange block in an unfamiliar neighborhood late in the evening and wondering, “am I in a bad situation?”

Well, now, there’s an app to answer that question.

SketchFactor, the brainchild of co-founders Allison McGuire and Daniel Herrington, is a Manhattan-based navigation app that crowdsources user experiences along with publicly available data to rate the relative “sketchiness” of certain areas in major cities. The app will launch on iTunes on Friday, capping off a big week for the startup, which was named as a finalist in NYC BigApps, a city-sponsored competition that promotes technologies designed to improve quality of life issues in New York City and government transparency.

According to Ms. McGuire, a Los Angeles native who lives in the West Village, the impetus behind SketchFactor was her experience as a young woman navigating the streets of Washington, D.C., where she worked at a nonprofit.

There you go.  Caucasoids being racist once again.

As “racists” — from Gawker.com — a website for the guilty Caucasoids amongst us:

Smiling Young White People Make App for Avoiding Black Neighborhoods

Crain’s reports on SketchFactor, a racist app made for avoiding “sketchy” neighborhoods, which is the term young white people use to describe places where they don’t feel safe because they watched all five seasons of The Wire.

Further:

Is there any way to keep white people from using computers, before this whole planet is ruined? I ask because the two enterprising white entrepreneurs above just made yet another app for avoiding non-white areas of your town—and it’s really taking off!

But here’s the great kicker:

There’s An App That Shows You Which Neighborhoods Are ‘Sketchy,’ And A News Crew Got Robbed While Using It

In DC — imagine that!

by Alyson Shontell

Oh, the irony.

A Washington D.C. news crew says it was robbed in Petworth, Northwest D.C., while reporting on a controversial app that shows users where “sketchy” neighborhoods. The news crew said the app led them to the location of the shoot.

While the D.C. news crew didn’t specifically name the app they were reporting on, it sounds a lot like SketchFactor, an app that was recently featured in Valleywag, Business Insider and other outlets as an app with a racist connotation. “Smiling Young White People Make An App for Avoiding Black Neighborhoods,” Valleywag’s Sam Biddle wrote.

“We were doing a story on an app that describes ‘sketchy’ neighborhoods,” WUSA 9 crew member Mola Lenghi told his network on air Friday evening.

“It led us to the Petworth neighborhood of Northwest, and I’m not going to call it a ‘sketchy’ neighborhood, but as folks were telling us that it was a good neighborhood, and that not much activity happens around there — as that was being told to us, our van was being robbed.”

Lenghi showed the van’s destroyed lock and says a number of electronics and bags were stolen from the vehicle. 

Perhaps I might distill some things down to this:

Statistics, meet Reality.  Shake hands and come out fighting.
