In the pouring rain, the 23-year-old man pulled a fur-lined hood over his head and stood on the porch of his younger brother’s home in the Douglas Park neighborhood early Sunday, watching police investigate the city’s first homicide of the weekend.
The man said he heard people arguing and throwing bottles at each other about 2:30 a.m. before the shots rang out. He said he went to check on what was happening three doors down but then stopped, retreated back.
“When I noticed the commotion, I headed the other direction,” he said, as he was getting ready to go to work as a truck driver. “There’s a reason for the rain. Only God knew this was going to happen.”
The fatal shooting of Tywan Anderson, 23, in the 1300 block of South Fairfield Avenue, half a block north of Mount Sinai Hospital, marked the only fatality among 29 people who were shot from Saturday to Sunday morning, officials said. Of the people shot, three were teenagers — ages 14, 15 and 17.
Woo-hoo. In the city with the strictest gun laws in the nation. How well they work. Wait. I have a great idea. Let’s make them even more constrictive. That will solve everything.
The problem is real: 762 people were murdered in Chicago last year, a stunning 58 percent jump in homicides from 2015. So large was the sharp, sudden increase in homicides in one of America’s largest cities that it tangibly raised the entire nation’s homicide rate higher for 2016. But nobody really knows why it’s happening.
Is that true? No one knows why it’s happening?
Even the data on one of the most obvious possible causes—a sudden shift in policing tactics—offers little clarity. Street stops had been in steady decline since early 2014, when they peaked at 80,000 stops per month. By October 2015, they reached 60,000 per month and then plummeted sharply to 10,000 stops by December 2015. At first glance, that would seem to correlate with the sudden surge of in 2016.
Despite the low death rate, the number of wounded for the holiday weekend has far exceeded that of the last three years.
While the focus has often been misplaced on the police in the Windy City, those killed in confrontations with cops is relatively low. For instance, in 2016, only four of the city’s 717 shooting deaths were at the hands of police. Thus far this year, there have been no police-involved shootings.
Black Lives Matter Philly Bans White People From Its Meetings
by Amber Randall
Black Lives Matter Philly banned white people from an upcoming event, claiming it is a “black only space.”
The April 15 meeting plans to discuss projects and initiatives for the upcoming year and act as a place for people to “meet, strategize and organize.” While children are invited to attend, white people are explicitly banned from the meeting, according to the Facebook event page.
When people began questioning the ban on whites over Twitter, Black Lives Matter Philly stayed by their ban, explaining that their meetings are “black centered.”
Anyone who identifies as “African disapora” is allowed to attend, the group explained over Twitter.
Calling Rachel Dolezal. Hello, Rachel Dolezal? Perhaps it’s time for you to weigh in on CNN because, after all, race is only a “social construct.”
I submit there may be a few blacks in America who might take issue with that. Call me wacky, but I suspect more than three blacks might think so.
After all, as Kamau Kambon says, it’s past due time to simply eliminate Caucasoids.
The terrible problem is this: not all blacks in America think this way. Take Tyrus from the Greg Gutfeld Show.
BZ, you racist! Blacks can’t be racist. Just ask them.
Black Lives Matter Leader Says White People Are ‘Sub-Human’ and Suffer From ‘Genetic Defects’
by Lukas Mikelionis
A Black Lives Matter leader has come under fire after arguing on social media that white people are “sub-human” and suffer from “recessive genetic defects,” and musing about how the race could be wiped out.
In a Facebook post, Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder Yusra Khogali went on a rant, arguing that black people are the superior race because white people posses “genetic defects” that make them lesser humans, according to the Toronto Sun.
Who is this loving individual, pray tell? It’s easy. Per her own words, she is a racist of the first origin. Let’s listen and watch.
Last year, according to Newstalk 1010, she also caused a controversy after tweeting: “Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today. Plz plz plz.”
“Whiteness is not humxness, in fact, white skin is sub-humxn,” she wrote. “All phenotypes exist within the black family and white ppl are a genetic defect of blackness.”
Before we go too far afield, let’s not forget that black people can never be racist.

4 in custody after mentally disabled man tied up, tortured on Facebook Live
by Lisa Chavarria
FOX 32 NEWS – Chicago investigators are questioning four African-Americans after a Facebook Live video shows a group of people torturing a white mentally disabled man while someone yelled “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!”
Black teens are charged with a HATE CRIME after live-streaming torture of white disabled man who they held prisoner for days before he escaped – as cops reveal they have shown NO remorse
by Ashley Collman and Emily Crane
The four people believed to be behind the attack on a young special needs man in Chicago on Tuesday have been identified and charged
The suspected attackers are Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; and sisters Brittany, 18, and Tanisha Covington, 24
The foursome face charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery and a hate crime
Hill, who was acquainted with the victim, faces an additional charge of robbery and possession of a stolen vehicle
Hill, Cooper and Brittany Covington also face charges of residential burglary
The four were arrested on Wednesday in connection to a video that was live-streamed on Facebook, showing four people torturing a special needs man
The traumatized victim in the incident was found wandering a Chicago street after escaping on Wednesday
The victim – who has not been identified – has been returned to his family
The four black friends believed to be behind the disturbing torture of a white special needs man in a Facebook live video have been identified and charged with committing a hate crime.
Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; and sisters Birttany, 18, and Tanisha Covington, 24, were charged Thursday morning with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery and a hate crime, according to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. Hill was also charged with robbery and possession of a stolen motor vehicle. He, Cooper and Brittany Covington face additional charges of residential burglary.
Half an hour of this torture was live-streamed on Facebook, showing the group beating the young man, cutting off a piece of his scalp, forcing him to drink toilet water. At one point in the video, one of the four yells ‘f*** Donald Trump. F*** white people’ at the victim.
I suspect by now you’ve a rather good grasp of the overall situation, what occurred, and the players involved. I believe you’re beginning to draw some conclusions; one of them may be “we’re dealing with a hate crime.”
Because the incident made national news on Wednesday the 4th, you can be sure that Mr Obama, Loretta Lynch, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU immediately demanded, the same day, that hate crime charges be applied to the black suspects.
In fact, the White House said it’s “too early to tell” if the torture of a mentally-challenged white male whose semi-scalping by four black suspects — to the point where you can see the white of his skull in the video — rises to the threshold of a hate crime. Watch:
Of course. Nothing like a little live torture on the internet to convince people that no hate crime was involved whatsoever.
In fact, if we really think about it, Donald Trump, his minions and Caucasoids are responsible for this act which, if you’re honest with yourself, was committed by errant kids who simply made a mistake.
Brittany Covington clasping a semi-automatic pistol. But wait; I thought there were gun laws in Chicago. Harsh gun laws. Onerous gun laws. Right?
The impartial Don Lemon hosts one guest — Symone Sanders, a black female — who knows the suspects did not commit a hate crime.
Please note the equivocation of Sanders, who seems to be more offended that the suspects were sufficiently daft to broadcast the event live on social media. “We cannot callously go about classifying things as a hate crime.” Of course. She names “their disability” as one factor of a hate crime. Symone, did you even hear what you said? And did you listen to or watch the video? It would seem to me that, yes, I did hear the words “fuck white people.” After years in radio, wearing headphones, attending loud concerts, being Rangemaster of a 2,000+ officer department and having tinnitus, yes, my hearing isn’t what it used to be. But it’s not that bad.
Sanders has previously mocked a victim of mob violence who was beaten after the presidential election while the attackers shouted, “You voted for Trump.” She has also suggested that the election of Trump has “put white supremacy into the White House.”
“And I don’t mean to have favorites here, but at the end of the day – white people always tend to overreact and over-blame people for any type of incidents they get involved in,” Sanders added.
Later, Don Lemon himself said he didn’t think the suspects were evil but, instead, chalked it up to “bad home training.” Please watch the video.
Right. This is just a silly, forgettable mistake by misguided Chicago young adults. Who are all 18 and chargeable as adults.
My final thought is this. I always like to do what I call the “Reversal Theory.” What if four Caucasoid 18-year-olds, two male and two female, had taken a mentally-challenged young black male and done the precise same things, and had also said “fuck Barack Obama” and “fuck niggers”?
I wonder if all the persons I mentioned above would have been commenting within the very hour of the release of the story, calling for hate crime prosecution and more? Civil unrest? Riots?
Keith Lamont Scott had a gun, was familiar with it, had prior gun charges. Why do we attribute three full names to mass murderers or killers? John Wayne Gacy? Mark David Chapman?
I wrote originally in this post, “false memes, lies and riots in Charlotte,” about the entire BLM “movement” being founded but upon a bitter lie — that is to say, “hands up, don’t shoot” with regard to Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. That never happened.
The lie currently being foisted upon the public by the American Media Maggots and the self-interested Leftists involved, in Charlotte, is that Keith Lamont Scott was a completely unarmed man who possessed naught but a book.
That too is incorrect.
In the released videos, why is Lamont’s wife, Rakeyia, yelling to him, “Keith, don’t do it” numerous times, and why are the police officers yelling at him, many times, “drop the gun”?
What was Keith not supposed to do? I suspect his wife was telling him not to reach for the firearm she knew was in the automobile; not to grab it.
It appears the wife of Keith Lamont Scott recently filed a restraining order against him and specifically said he was a threat to law enforcement because he carried a 9MM pistol.
From Time Warner Cable New Charlotte reporter Jenna Barnes:
Scott possessed a handgun at the time his wife, Rakeyia Scott, filed the above restraining order on October 3rd of 2015. Immured in print.
The photograph above, provided by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, shows quite a number of vitally important things to those who know something about firearms — which would not include today’s PlaySkool T-ball journalistas, Demorats, Leftists and Progressives.
They are absolutely critical elements, to include 1) The single action Colt semi-auto is in what instructors call Condition One. That is to say, ready to fire. 2) The handgun’s hammer is back but more importantly, 3) The thumb safety is off, making the handgun more dangerous and prepared to fire, even exceeding Condition One. To me, the pistol appears to be an older Colt Mustang in .380 ACP.
This handgun can kill a law enforcement officer just as dead as one chambered in 9mm. The .380 round is nothing more than 9mm kurz.
