Kathleen Peacock, 22 of St Charles, Missouri has been sentenced to Oblivion, in absentia, at Entry Court, Serratoth Custom House for her role in the death of her two year old son Braydon Barnes, aged 2.

Kathleen Peacock

Braydon was left locked in a room with a space heater on for over 36 hours while Peacock and Lucas Barnes cooked and used methamphetamine. The child’s autopsy revealed that he died of hyperthermia or in layman’s terms cooking to death slowly while in lack of food or water for a period of at least a day. The trailer home where Peacock and Lucas lived which was described as littered with dirty dishes and feces was said to not be the worst ever encountered by St Charles County prosecutor Tim Lohmar, stating, “I’d love to tell you this is the worst case we’ve ever seen, but it’s not. We see things like this with some degree of regularity, unfortunately, and it typically follows a similar pattern, so this is as sad as any of those.”

THE TRUTH ABOUT HOMICIDE IN CHICAGO

Posted in CRIME IN AMERICA, CRIME IN CHICAGO on 31/12/2015 by Robin Naismith Green

hoops green 6

In the two decades I have worked the crime beat here in Hell’s justice capitol I have never seen politics play a greater role in how crime is perceived than in the past eight years. Chicago has become the whipping boy for conservative bloggers and those who comment at conservative websites. Conservatives and their white supremacist allies reeling at the election of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States, began referring to the Windy City as “ChiCongo.” The Right pointed to the high number of murders in the city as proof that not only was murder in Chicago a sign of racial inequality but that this “rise in murder” was coming to your mostly wholesome white Christian suburb very soon under a plan being hatched by the newly elected president.

Of course, none of this is true. However, America you now live in an age where the truth is seen by those on the Right as something that can be false but justifies fear and bigotry. President Obama’s connection with Chicago was an integral part of the political machine that has gotten him elected twice and therefore an easy target for conservatives. But the crime rate in the Second City, while a victim of the 24 hour news cycle in 2015 did not come under the same scrutiny during previous Republican administrations especially not during the Reagan era.

At the height of the Reagan presidency, Chicago stood as a bastion of progressive liberalism in the heart of the conservative Midwest. In 1981 there were 877 homicides in the city of Chicago and yet there was little or no blame of the president or his policies for the slaughter. Contrast this with the first full year of the Obama administration when there were 459 homicides were committed resulting in numerous conservative “news” sites working overtime to assure their readers that the bloodbath was both a symptom of racial and political inferiority.

The high murder figures did not end with the transfer of power to President George W Bush, or to Clinton in 1992, however. Bush was president when the all time high of 943 was achieved in 1992; Clinton’s Chicago murder peak was 931 in 1994. In the twenty years since, homicide in Chicago has actually declined at a steady rate to 704 in 1998 then to 601 in 2003 and to a low of 432 in 2014. For all the horror stories that those numbers include, and yes 400 plus murders in a city are far too many, and even for the clear corruption that exists in the policing system in Chicago, it is near impossible to assign the racial and political labels to the violence as has been done by the Right over the last eight years. As I have said in the ten years I have spent here at the terrestrial digital hub reporting on the crimes of the Living– crime is individual not racial or political, generally.

CONSERVATIVE BLOGS AREN’T INTERESTED IN THE HORRIBLE TRUTH OF WHITE ON WHITE MURDER

Posted in CRIME IN AMERICA, ROBIN NAISMITH GREEN OPINIONS with tags , on 24/12/2013 by Robin Naismith Green

hoops green 5

As a crime writer I have come to accept that some people just cannot handle the truth. I’ve been reading crime stats from the US for years and death rates for just as long. The conservative blogosphere at sites like Stormfront, Newsbusters and ViolenceAgainstWhites would have you believe that blacks are on the rampage because the ratio of blacks that killed whites in 2010 was 2.05x.

What they are missing is that in a nation of 317,296,340 souls at the time of this post, that translates into a factor of .000001408 or 1 incidence of black on white murder out of every 710,000 people. That isn’t likely to convince any conservatives but maybe this stat will be an eyeopener that will give them pause before they start in on crime and race. The rate of white suicide in the same year, when you consider 34,690 white killed themselves in 2010, gives a incidence rate for population of 1 out of every 9168 people.

That’s the difference between a city the size of Baltimore vice a hamlet the size of Clinton, Oklahoma. That means every 15 minutes or so, somewhere in America a white person commits suicide, a number that is staggeringly far too high. Equally, a white person is killed by a black person in America every 18 hours and 40 or so minutes. The simple math shows where the real violence is here the rate of white self murder is 72.5 times that of black on white crime.

Amazona,

I’m not ignoring anything that Iran has done or is planning to do but you are ignoring history. In America’s blind drive to get where it thought it would be in 2013 the American government overthrew m any governments. It is very likely you were alive when the US CIA overthrew the Mossadegh government in 1953 over the product of oil. This was okay because America wanted an ally in the region to fight communism and access to the petroleum riches in Persia. The return of the corrupt Pahlavis was the cause of the Iranian revolution just as America’s support for Bin Laden was the eventual cause of 9/11. None of that matters to you as a modern far right conservative you simply choose to ignore all of this history and fact because it doesn’t fit neatly into what your fathers thought the world would be today.

Ahmadinejad is no longer the President of Iran and I do not believe the ultimate goal of the Shi’a Iranian government is anymore unreasonable than the ideals held in the minds of religious Americans that they need an Israeli state to exist so that they can be raptured. Both are ridiculous and irrational notions especially when you consider that I am a Jew. My question is what happens to my people if your people are the “chosen ones?” The triumph of Christianity? The triumph of Islam? Why not the triumph of defeating poverty? Of defeating illness? Of defeating war with a triumph of Peace?

Mental patients can get guns in most places in the United States. This is one of the things that actually does make me angry about the state of my former country. I have to go back to the creeping fear that lies in the minds of the children of those men who could not stand a world that had men like Mossadegh and Allende in power and let’s not even mention Castro or this comment will get far to detailed for you to tolerate ideologically. You see communist and socialist aren’t slurs to me and never will be. I honestly do believe that America would be a better country if you solved problems with diplomacy and language vice shooting someone in the head even if that someone is your ex wife kids and dogs.

Laws are made, they should be made to better Society as a whole not to reinforce the beliefs of the majority. Those outside the majority have rights as well. You want guns to hunt? Fine You want guns to kill innocent people and steal from those who have more than you? Not so fine. I have no idea why guns are so important to Americans simply because a document says you can bear them. But, whatever, keep your guns and keep killing each other off because of divorce, or drugs or stupidity or the moral decay of inhumanity that creeps in to your mind when you realize you’ll never rise to be a second class citizen in a first class nation. Yes, I would take your guns away. Lucky for you I don’t make the rules. Yet.

So what makes your rights, sovereign, to have an arsenal or firearms any different from another nation wishing to have weapons either offensive or defense to protect their own national interests? Would you be keen on the idea of the Swiss determining that gun violence is a threat to global commerce and thereby demanding that China, France, England and Russia sit down with a delegation of American diplomats to figure out how to disarm the American people? Oh and let’s just throw in the sanction that would cripple America—no more oil imports until the problem is resolved. I bet you’d be crying from the top of your barn for green energy solutions then.

hindsight 2293
In Hindsight

I get that someone like you is appalled by the facts of my own social life and that I am not “ashamed” of what I am. Sorry for your bad luck in that because you are simply one Human Being among seven plus billion and your opinion while it counts out to several decimal places has no bearing in power on how I live my life nor should it. I work for Liberal ideals of Peace and Freedom not the Conservative ideals of Control and the Power that can be accumulated from that Control. The language of my homeland? Really? Why do you care? Who I sleep with? Why do you care if not to want to use it as an archaic means by which to shame a currency that is losing value more and more among the two demographics that conservatives can never win back in your dwindling lifetime—the young and women. It is you Amazona not me that is living in a fantasy world one driven by religion and ideas that have long since been cast aside in the new digital technological age. Sit down and talk to an 18 year old from a place with more people in their suburbs than you have in your county and you’ll see what America has become while you worshipped Reagan’s method and knew nothing of his means. That conversation will wipe the scales from even your eyes if you can put aside your fear long enough to listen.

As always I’ll sign off in Hellac:

THE CONSERVATIVE MIND: FACTS ARE STUPID THINGS AND WHY LEO PUSATERI ISN’T THE SORT OF PUNDIT YOU NEED TO READ

[NB: My conservative buddy Cluster shows how the conservative mind should work; in an effort to find common ground and find solutions. To check out his excellent site, click the chick.– F.S.]

I have quite a few bones to pick right with Leo Pusateri’s latest regurgitation of right wing fearspeak at Blogs4Victory so you might want to settle in with a nice late morning cocktail, as I am doing, because will take a little while. The smart kids in the room are cognizant of what a hate crime is. To Leo Pusateri they are a Progressive tool to get back at White Americans. To a man like him whose mind is clouded with a dangerous cocktail of conservative ideology and religious hubris, hate crimes are nothing more than another form of welfare doled out in the form of revenge.

For those of you who aren’t that smart, or are conservatives let me refresh your memory of what defines a hate crime in the United States of America. Keep in mind now that unlike many of the fine folks I work with here in Hell, I am not an attorney and the only bar to which I belong is the glorious one down the street at Vulca. That said:

The modern era of hate-crime legislation began in 1968 with the passage of federal statute, 18 U.S. 245, part of the Civil Rights Act which made it illegal to “by force or by threat of force, injure, intimidate, or interfere with anyone who is engaged in six specified protected activities, by reason of their race, color, religion, or national origin.” However, “The prosecution of such crimes must be certified by the U.S. attorney general.” Streissguth, Tom (2003). Hate Crimes (Library in a Book), p.3. ISBN 0-8160-4879-7.

Those six protected activities include:

(b) Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, by force or threat of force willfully injures, intimidates or interferes with, or attempts to injure, intimidate or interfere with—
(1) any person because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—
(A) voting or qualifying to vote, qualifying or campaigning as a candidate for elective office, or qualifying or acting as a poll watcher, or any legally authorized election official, in any primary, special, or general election;
(B) participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility, or activity provided or administered by the United States;
(C) applying for or enjoying employment, or any perquisite thereof, by any agency of the United States;
(D) serving, or attending upon any court in connection with possible service, as a grand or petit juror in any court of the United States;
(E) participating in or enjoying the benefits of any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance; or

(2) any person because of his race, color, religion or national origin and because he is or has been—
(A) enrolling in or attending any public school or public college;
(B) participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility or activity provided or administered by any State or subdivision thereof;
(C) applying for or enjoying employment, or any perquisite thereof, by any private employer or any agency of any State or subdivision thereof, or joining or using the services or advantages of any labor organization, hiring hall, or employment agency;
(D) serving, or attending upon any court of any State in connection with possible service, as a grand or petit juror;
(E) traveling in or using any facility of interstate commerce, or using any vehicle, terminal, or facility of any common carrier by motor, rail, water, or air;
(F) enjoying the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of any inn, hotel, motel, or other establishment which provides lodging to transient guests, or of any restaurant, cafeteria, lunchroom, lunch counter, soda fountain, or other facility which serves the public and which is principally engaged in selling food or beverages for consumption on the premises, or of any gasoline station, or of any motion picture house, theater, concert hall, sports arena, stadium, or any other place of exhibition or entertainment which serves the public, or of any other establishment which serves the public and
(i) which is located within the premises of any of the aforesaid establishments or within the premises of which is physically located any of the aforesaid establishments, and
(ii) which holds itself out as serving patrons of such establishments; or

(3) during or incident to a riot or civil disorder, any person engaged in a business in commerce or affecting commerce, including, but not limited to, any person engaged in a business which sells or offers for sale to interstate travelers a substantial portion of the articles, commodities, or services which it sells or where a substantial portion of the articles or commodities which it sells or offers for sale have moved in commerce; or

(4) any person because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—
(A) participating, without discrimination on account of race, color, religion or national origin, in any of the benefits or activities described in subparagraphs (1)(A) through (1)(E) or subparagraphs (2)(A) through (2)(F); or
(B) affording another person or class of persons opportunity or protection to so participate; or

(5) any citizen because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such citizen or any other citizen from lawfully aiding or encouraging other persons to participate, without discrimination on account of race, color, religion or national origin, in any of the benefits or activities described in subparagraphs (1)(A) through (1)(E) or subparagraphs (2)(A) through (2)(F), or participating lawfully in speech or peaceful assembly opposing any denial of the opportunity to so participate—
shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death. As used in this section, the term “participating lawfully in speech or peaceful assembly” shall not mean the aiding, abetting, or inciting of other persons to riot or to commit any act of physical violence upon any individual or against any real or personal property in furtherance of a riot. Nothing in subparagraph (2)(F) or (4)(A) of this subsection shall apply to the proprietor of any establishment which provides lodging to transient guests, or to any employee acting on behalf of such proprietor, with respect to the enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of such establishment if such establishment is located within a building which contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and which is actually occupied by the proprietor as his residence.

That is the root of the hate crime law. Now many conservatives only consider violent crime when discussing hate crimes or bias-motivated crimes as they are actually called in courts of law. Violent crimes are not the only constituent of what can be a bias-motivated crime. Pusateri clearly doesn’t realize that hate crimes laws on the federal level aren’t a new phenomena. Hate crimes legislation actually started in the post Civil War era with the Civil Rights Act of 1871. However, it did take over one hundred years for the states to begin to enact hate crime legislation and that began with California [big shock here!– D.V.] in 1978.

For a moment let’s look at some of the things that this conservative man is struggling with here. He feels that the murder of Delbert Belton is a hate crime. Well it isn’t unless it can be proven that hate symbols or hate language was used during the attack. Being a bigot and causing someone’s murder doesn’t immediately qualify the crime as a hate crime were that the case, George Zimmerman would be in prison right now. Pusateri says he “doesn’t believe in the concept of hate crimes.” Well, this isn’t a real surprise to me at all when you consider Pusateri likely doesn’t believe that black civil rights, GLBTQ civil rights or the civil rights of women have ever been threatened.

And then, yes, there is the bugiman of “thought crimes.” In the conservative lexicon there is no greater nugget of fearspeak than this. But why does this man use the term “thought crime.” Well that is simply because he wants those in his little tribe of conservatives to always feel they are under attack. The “Libruls” are coming for your guns. Not true. The “Proggies” want to allow bands of racially different thugs to be able to muder and rape white people with impunity. Also, not true. The “Commies on the Left,” as if there were any commies on the Right, want to ruin your small business with ObamaCare. Not anywhere near true. So this is designed to scare the shit out of a generation of people between the ages of 45 and Death who have stood by eating Chee-tos and watching TV while their country shifted socially right under their feet. These people’s parents expected fear of the Church and Hell to keep the “other” in check. Now that we know many churches are filled with predators and that some will go to great lengths to cover up that predation and abuse this one flied about as well as a lead zeppelin. There was until the 1960s a concept of groupthink on the part of communites, actual whole suburbs who thought their fight for racial discrimination was necessary simply out of the fear of being ostracized. Now nobody cares because America is better when diversity is celebrated and people live within the law.

hindsight 2219
In Hindsight

Pusateri is angered most because he truly believes that only whites get punished for hate crimes. In fact, according to the latest data available from the Bureau of Justice Statistics in March 2013, 63% of violent hate crime victims were White and 7% were Black between 2007 and 2011. Among the perps, during the same period, 53% were White and 27% were Black. Maybe with the latest two high profile acts of violent ignorance perpetrated upon innocent people by folks that aren’t White so prominently in the media those that want to drink from the well that Leo Pusateri has poisoned with fear and religious based bigotry need to read this article from Tim Wise and sleep a little bit better tonight. Or, they can read these stats about the epidemic of White American suicide in rural America and never sleep again. Given the choice of walking down a street in Brooklyn vice having Thanksgiving dinner in a rural White home where the marriage is crumbling, there are numerous guns, and there’s a lot of debt? I’ll take Brooklyn, anytime.

Pax Terra!
