UAlbany expels two students involved in hate crime hoax

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/05/ualbany_expels_two_students_involved_in_hate_crime_hoax.html

The University of Albany expelled two students and suspended a third for two years following their indictment for lying about an incident on a municipal bus where the women alleged a hate crime against them had been committed.

Washington Times:

Ariel Agudio and Asha Burwell have been dismissed from the university and Alexis Briggs has been suspended for two years, according to an email sent to the school community Thursday by President Robert J. Jones, the Albany Times Union reported.

The women grabbed national headlines — and a sympathetic tweet from Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton — after claiming that a group of 12 to 20 white men hurled racial slurs and attacked them on a CDTA bus about 1 a.m. Jan. 30 while others stood by and did nothing.

The alleged incident sparked a large on-campus rally defending women of color and the social media campaign #DefendBlackGirlsUAlbany.

Police now say there is no evidence to back up their story and that the women were the actual aggressors, according to footage captured by cameras on the bus and by witnesses. The actual victim, police said, was a 19-year-old white woman who was also a bus passenger.

The three women were indicted this week by a grand jury and arraigned for 10 misdemeanor charges, including assault, attempted assault and false reporting, along with a violation for harassment, the Times Union reported. They have pleaded not guilty.

The three didn’t show up for their student conduct board hearing March 9, because their lawyers cited a conflict of interest in which UAlbany served as judge in the board hearings and witness in the criminal case, the Times Union reported.

Ms. Burwell’s lawyer Frederick Brewington noted that Ms. Burwell had already withdrawn from the university before she had been given a hearing and then dismissed, the Times Union reported.

Inspector Paul Burlingame of the University Police Department, a witness who testified at the hearing, said the real victims of the assault stayed mum during the media storm because they feared for their safety.

“One of the female victims,” Mr. Burlingame said, “withdrew out of concern for her physical safety.”

This story falls under the title “World’s Dumbest Hate Crime Hoaxers.” Rule #1 in faking a hate crime: Make sure there isn’t any video that can contradict your story.

In this case, the bus video clearly showed the women as the aggressors and the victims, terrified for their personal safety, have gone silent. Meanwhile, no apology has been issued by the school and certainly no regrets have been expressed by the Clinton campaign for lending support to this hoax.

In the world of aggressive racialists who see racism and hate under every bed and in every closet, there is no such thing as a “hoax” so there’s no reason to apologize or even acknowledge the mistake. A real racist incident – real or perceived – will come along shortly and we can start the whole tiresome process over again.

Black lives matter bums calling for lynching and hanging of whites and cops

Members of the #FYF911 or #FukYoFlag and #BlackLivesMatter movements called for the lynching and hanging of white people and cops. They encouraged others on a radio show Tuesday night to “turn the tide” and kill white people and cops to send a message about the killing of black people in America.

One of the F***YoFlag organizers is called “Sunshine.” She has a radio blog show hosted from Texas called, “Sunshine’s F***ing Opinion Radio Show.”

A snapshot of her #FYF911 @LOLatWhiteFear Twitter page at 9:53 p.m. shows that she was urging supporters to “Call now!! #fyf911 tonight we continue to dismantle the illustion of white…”

Just Murder, Not a ‘Hate Crime’

 

http://theothermccain.com/2015/03/26/just-murder-not-a-hate-crime/

The headline in January was frightening:

Lesbian gunned down in North Philly
A North Philadelphia lesbian was shot in broad daylight [Jan. 13] while on her way to work.
Kim Jones, 56, was shot in the head at 9:30 a.m. while she was standing on the corner of 12th and Jefferson streets near Temple University, waiting to take the bus to work, police said.
The gunman came up behind Jones, who was wearing headphones, and shot her point-blank in the back of the head.
Investigators believe Jones was targeted, but a motive had not been announced as of presstime.
“She had her purse, she had her cellphone, she had jewelry on, none of which was taken, none of which was disturbed,” said Homicide Capt. James Clark in a press conference Tuesday.
Officer Tanya Little, a police spokesperson, said investigators are aware that Jones, who married her partner last month, was a lesbian, and do not yet know if that could have played a role in her killing.
“Investigators have not ruled out anything at this point,” Little said.

That fear-inspiring possibility — an incipient wave of anti-lesbian terrorism, perhaps? — was left to dangle in the public mind for a couple of weeks until police solved the case:

Randolph Sanders was careful.
Lurking in a breezeway on the morning of Jan. 13, with a gun tucked into his duffel bag, Sanders hid his face under a cap and bulky headphones.
He was careful, police said, not to look at the security cameras that captured him when he approached his boss — Kim Jones — and shot her in the back of the head as she waited for a bus. . . .
Police said Jones suspected him of stealing funds — about $40,000. He was convinced that she would report him to authorities and that he would lose his job at Turning Points for Children, the organization where they worked, police said.
On the morning Jones was killed, she had scheduled a meeting with the Department of Human Services, which funds Turning Points.
Sanders, 36, knew she was going to turn him in, Homicide Detective James Clark said.
“He laid in wait, and he ambushed her,” Clark said.
Sanders had been hired by Jones in 2012 and served as theassistant director of the nonprofit’s Families and Students Together (FAST) program, an after-school outreach designed to strengthen parents’ bonds with their children.
Turning Points said in a statement Monday that it believes the alleged misappropriation of funds was “an isolated incident” but will hire a third-party investigator to look into the matter.
An investigation into the allegedly stolen funds is ongoing, but Clark said police believe Sanders had been stealing gift cards meant for families participating in the FAST program and keeping them for himself.
He has been charged with murder and related offenses.

The anti-gay hate-crime angle was never a valid concern despite the LESBIAN GUNNED DOWN IN BROAD DAYLIGHT fear-mongering coverage. It is important to understand how the media deliberately manipulate perceptions. The murder of Matthew Shepard was portrayed as a hate crime, despite every evidence to the contrary, because gay activists figured out that depicting homosexuals as victims — and depicting opponents of the gay agenda as motivated by dangerously violent “hate”– was the key to political success. Both the news media and the entertainment industry have seized on this theme, promoting the Gay Victimhood narrative so relentlessly as to foment paranoia and generate a certain number of fake hate-crime hoaxes. Meanwhile, public school administrators are twisting themselves into pretzels to be “inclusive” and “tolerant” of homosexuality, implementing “anti-bullying” campaigns based on the belief that our society is pervaded by an irrational homophobia that causes gay kids to commit suicide.

What should disturb us about this is how unbalanced and unrealistic these perceptions are. Studies indicate that only 2.3 percent of the U.S. population (about 1-in-40) is gay or bisexual, and yet media have exaggerated this to the point that young adults believe 30 percent of people are gay! The same media which so exaggerate the size of the gay population also foster the idea that gay people are persecuted victims of oppression and, because elite culture has become so oriented toward the protection of victimized minorities, anyone attempting to counter-balance this narrative is more or less automatically accused of hate.

Crazy people don’t need any special incentive to be crazy, but this victimhood rhetoric can incite crazy people to do crazy things: Floyd Lee Corkins told the FBI he attacked the headquarters of the Family Research Council because the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) identified them as a “hate group” due to their traditional marriage views. And then there’s the case of Jan Hamilton of Aspen, Colorado.

In 2001, when she was 59, Hamilton was attending a Bible study class at a Baptist church in Aspen when she and another woman in the class became involved in a lesbian relationship. After a couple of years, the other woman broke off the relationship and “Hamilton became relentless in her quest to re-enter the woman’s life,” according to an Aspen Times articleabout the case. In 2005, Hamilton was banned from the church and it appears that her stalking of her ex-lover escalated:

[The victim testified at a 2012 hearing] that despite a restraining order she filed in 2008, Hamilton would often show up at her home uninvited, or send emails and other bits of correspondence, until some point in 2010.
Hamilton’s activities affected her well-being to the point where eating and sleeping were difficult, the woman testified.
“It’s very upsetting,” the woman said. “I have come to understand that Ms. Hamilton is relentless in the pursuit of her agenda and will stop at almost nothing.”
The restraining order, and promises from Hamilton that she would leave her alone, made no difference at all, the woman said.
“I live constantly knowing something’s going to happen, but I don’t know how or where or when,” she said.

And then there’s this:

Hamilton has filed numerous lawsuits over the past few years against her perceived adversaries, claiming everything from sexual discrimination to retaliation and defamation to attempted second-degree murder. . . .
Hamilton says she is afflicted with cancer because of the stress that residents, landlords, churchgoers and others have inflicted upon her. Others have suggested, in court and otherwise, that Hamilton has extreme mental-health issues.

Kuh-RAY-zee! It’s not against the law to be crazy, but our nation’s mental-health facilities are overcrowded, and so it’s impossible to lock up all the lunatics. Earlier this month, Jan Hamilton was back in court:

An Aspen woman [March 6] was arrested for the 16th time in six years after she allegedly violated restraining orders by driving by a church from which she is banned — to the point where the pastor said congregation numbers are dwindling — and using a networking website to contact a person named in a protection order.
Judge Jonathan Pototsky of the 9th Judicial District set bond for Jan Hamilton, 73, at a cash-only amount of $30,000, telling her that he would raise it to $50,000 or $100,000 if she bonded out and continued to commit offenses.
Hamilton, as she has repeatedly, said she was innocent and is being persecuted for being a lesbian. She once spent 25 months in jail on similar accusations; was on trial March 4 for harassment and bail-bond violations (the judge has not yet rendered his verdict); and is to be sentenced [March 16] in two cases in which she was convicted for false reporting and harassment.
In the latest case, a member of Christ Episcopal Church of Aspen contacted Aspen police officer Jeff Fain on March 1. The man told Fain that Hamilton drove by the church repeatedly and asked members going in and out to pray for her. A restraining order prevents her from contacting the man, his wife and others, and Hamilton is also prevented from going to places where she knows the people will be.

Of course, Jan Hamilton has a Twitter account — all the lunatics are on Twitter now — and has used it to claim that she is a victim of a “Religious Extremist Lynch Mob,” invoking the 2009 Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act. When federal law encourages this victimhood mentality, are we surprised that paranoid lunatics like Jan Hamilton think they have a “right” to harass people at churches? And a very similar phenomenon is at work when we see rape hoaxes on university campuses. Sen. Kristen Gillibrand continues her crusade to deny male students ordinary due-process protections, and liberals claim that fraternities trying to protect themselves against false accusations are a “rape lobby.”

The problems caused by endless celebrations of victimhood are going to keep getting worse, until people wake the hell up.

Frazier Glenn Miller’s ties to a 1987 triple slaying: Did the feds protect a killer?

On April 13, Frazier Glenn Miller was arrested after he allegedly shot and killed three people at a Jewish Community Center and a Jewish retirement center in suburban Kansas City. Within hours of the arrest, the media reported that Miller had a long history as a white supremacist and virulent anti-Semite who has spent time in prison and, more importantly, been freed in plea deals with the federal government.

Two defense attorneys tell Raw Story that Miller was working out his end of such a plea deal when he appeared as a witness for the prosecution in a murder trial nearly three decades ago. But they say it was obvious to them even then that Miller should have been considered the prime suspect in that crime — a crime that, to this day, remains unsolved.

As Miller faces charges for killing three people in Kansas City, these attorneys say it’s fair to ask the federal government – why wasn’t Miller in prison many years before this?

Sometime shortly before midnight on January 17, 1987, three masked men entered the Shelby III Adult Bookstore located outside Shelby, North Carolina, a business known for attracting a gay clientele. The men ordered the store’s four customers and a clerk to the floor, and then shot them, execution style, in the back of their heads. The masked intruders took cash from the register and rigged up plastic gallon jugs filled with gasoline and detonation fuses, planning to burn the bookstore to the ground.

Of the five victims, only three – Travis Melton, 19, Kenneth Godfrey, 29, and Paul Weston — died from the gunshot wounds. Two others — James Parris and John Anthony — were still alive. The bullet that wounded Parris exited his left eye socket, but he and Anthony both managed to get out of the building while it was catching fire.

“I was still knowing part of what was going on,” Parris testified later. “I felt the blood running over my hand. “

Parris stumbled from the store. Unable to see, he tried his keys in one car, then a second one, which started. He pulled the car away from the building and up U.S. 74. He flashed his headlights until a passing motorist stopped and phoned police.

In the months following the crime, investigators proposed numerous theories about the motive for the murders: a mob hit, a business dispute, perhaps even a homosexual relationship “gone sour.” But nothing produced any suspects.

Then in April 1987, authorities turned their eyes to the White Patriot Party. The WPP was founded in 1985 by Frazier Glenn Miller after Morris Dees and the Southern Poverty Law Center obtained a federal court order prohibiting Miller from organizing militia training with the Carolina Knights of the Klu Klux Klan. Dees and the federal government then obtained evidence that Miller had violated the terms of the federal consent agreement. In a federal trial in 1986, Miller was convicted of contempt of court. He was sentenced to one year in prison, with six months suspended. While his case was on appeal, Miller went on the lam.

Miller writes in his autobiography, A White Man Speaks Out, that he left his wife and children on March 18, 1987 to “go underground” and “wage war against the Jews and the federal government.” He went to Oklahoma to pick up Robert Eugene “Jack” Jackson, and Douglas Lawrence Sheets. A third man – Anthony Wydra – met the trio in Asheville, N.C. The quartet made thousands of copies of Miller’s “Declaration of War,” and mailed them to media outlets and white supremacy organizations across the nation. The declaration was also mailed to federal officials, including federal prosecutors.

Miller had declared war on “ni**ers, Jews, queers, assorted mongrels, white-race traitors and despicable informants,” and suggested awarding points as a kind of bounty system. “Ni**ers (1), other assorted mongrels (Mexicans, etc) (2), Jews (10), influential Jews (25), Queers (5), White Race traitors (10), Scalawags (10), Carpetbaggers (10), Abortionists (20), Race traitor politicians and Judges (50), Informants and government witnesses (50), Morris Segilman Dees (888).”

Miller’s uprising was short lived. On April 30, 1987 he and the three other men were arrested in Ozark, Missouri. Federal authorities found a weapons cache which included explosives, automatic weapons, and hand guns. Also seized in the raid were gloves and ski masks.

Miller says in his autobiography that the federal officials approached him with a plea deal.

“I was to plead guilty to one count of felony possession of a hand grenade and answer all questions posed to me by the authorities,” he writes. “In return, they would recommend a 5-year prison sentence, immunity from any further prosecution by either state or federal authorities, and entrance into the Federal Witness Protection Program which included the financial support of my family while I served my sentence.”

Miller claims the information he provided to authorities did not result in any indictments or prison sentences. (The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that Miller testified against 14 white supremacy leaders on charges of sedition. None were convicted.)

One person Miller testified against was Doug Sheets, in a 1989 trial for the Shelby III bookstore killing.

Prosecutors had come to believe that Sheets and Jackson, two of Miller’s “Declaration of War” partners, had committed the murders at the adult bookstore as a result of their extremist views.

Sheets was tried in April and May 1989, and Jackson’s trial was scheduled to take place once it was done. News clippings of the time report that it was known Miller was testifying against former members of his White Patriot Party as part of a plea deal.

Miller told the court that Sheets and Jackson had told him they had committed the killings in Shelby. Three other witnesses also said they’d heard Sheets talk about the killings while they were incarcerated with him in prison. One was a former White Patriot Party member who had abandoned the Miller group in the Ozarks, allegedly after hearing the story of the bookstore murders from Sheets and Jackson. That witness, Robert Stoner, received $5,000 from the federal government for his role in the indictments against Sheets and Jackson, as well as entry into the witness protection program after a bounty was put on his head by members of the Tennessee KKK.

Prosecutors also presented evidence that gloves found in the weapons cache from the April 1987 Missouri raid were linked by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to fibers found on the plastic jugs used to torch the bookstore.

But prosecutors couldn’t put Sheets or Jackson at the scene. In fact, they had alibis that put them in other states around the time of the bookstore killings. Sheets had evidence that he’d been in Kansas the day before the killings, and a blizzard that struck made it virtually impossible for him to have been in North Carolina to commit the crime.

As the trial went on, Sheets and his attorneys pointed out that it was Glenn Miller who didn’t have an alibi for the night of January 17, 1987.

On the stand, Sheets said that Miller had told him that “he damn sure made a big boom in Shelby.” Miller, meanwhile, in pretrial statements had referred to a feature in the bookstore – a two-way mirror – that suggested he might have taken part in the killings himself.

Don Bridges, one of Sheets’ attorneys, also recounted to jurors a conversation between Miller, Sheets, and Jackson. “Don’t worry boys,” Bridges said Miller told them, “I’m going to be pointing the finger at you, but don’t worry. You can’t be convicted because it’s all hearsay evidence.”

That turned out to be true. With no way to put Sheets at the scene of the murders, he was acquitted. Jackson’s trial was then canceled. To this day, there’s been no other trial or conviction for the murder of the three men at Shelby.

And now, two of the attorneys who helped defend Sheets say they believe that Glenn Miller should have been the one prosecuted.

Nearly 100 recent homicides linked to users of Stormfront white supremacist site, SPLC says

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/04/18/nearly-100-recent-homicides-linked-to-users-of-stormfront-white-supremacist-site-splc-says/

A white supremacist charged with killing three people near two Jewish community facilities in suburban Kansas City this week posted more than 12,000 messages on a racist website which carries the slogan “No Jews, Just Right,” according to an organization that tracks hate groups.

The online activity by Frazier Glenn Cross follows a trend in which prolific posters on hate online forums are becoming “disproportionately responsible” for racist murders and mass killings, according to a report released on Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit civil rights organization.

The report said nearly 100 people in the last five years have been murdered by frequent users of one white supremacist website, Stormfront. The site describes itself as a community of “White Nationalists” and “the voice of the new, embattled White minority.”

“It has been a magnet for the deadly and deranged,” said Heidi Beirich, author of the report.

According to the report, past participants in forums on the website included Wade Michael Page, an Army veteran who opened fire at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012 killing six people before taking his own life.

Another was Anders Behring Breivik, a Norwegian extremist who massacred 77 people in a bombing and shooting spree in Oslo and at a nearby youth summer camp in 2011.

Stormfront owner Don Black told Reuters that Cross had never been allowed to post on his site, and that Breivik and other killers named by the SPLC had been banned.

“We’re obviously a big website, and any site is likely to have a few unstable people pass through. Facebook, Twitter, and particularly Craigslist have had their share,” Black added in a statement he posted on his website.

“Like all good propaganda, it’s a mix of truth, half-truth and outrageous lies,” Black wrote of the SPLC.

Frazier Glenn Cross often posted on Stormfront until he was banned from the site in 2005 after testifying in a trial against white supremacists, said Mark Potok, a senior fellow with the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Law enforcement and human rights groups have identified Cross as a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan and someone who has repeatedly expressed hatred for Jewish people.

Cross, who also goes by the name Glenn Miller, later switched to another white supremacist forum, Vanguard News Network, where the center tracked his postings over the last five years.

“These killers are really hiding in plain sight on these forums,” Beirich said.

Vanguard did not immediately respond to an email to the website seeking comment.

Cross faces one count of capital murder in the fatal shooting of Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather, William Corporon, 69, outside a Jewish community center and a charge of first-degree murder in the death of 53-year-old Terri LaManno. Cross is being held on a $10 million bond.

Potok called on law enforcement, particularly the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to increase its focus on racist online forums.

Union Square ‘I hate white people’ beating victim dies; suspect in court

A 62-year-old man who was brutally attacked in Union Square last week died Monday.

On Wednesday, a man shouting that he “hated white people” punched victim Jeffrey Babbitt — who is white — in the face, witnesses said, causing him to fall and strike his head on the ground.

An attacker pummeled a bus passenger so hard he smashed the bones in his face after calling the victim a “cracker” in Manhattan – marking the second time in two days that people appeared to be randomly targeted in racial tirades against white people, authorities said.

In the latest incident, the suspect passed a 31-year-old rider on the M60 bus riding through Harlem, on West 127th Street, between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive, around 2:45 p.m., Friday, when he shouted the racial slur and punched the victim in the face, breaking his nose and eye socket, cops said.
