Protected: The Damage of Domestic Violence

Bombs In Boston…

As I type this, the “breaking news” is splashing across the television screen…two bombs have exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Footage shows athletes running and then you see smoke billowing from the left side of the screen and some of the runners collapse. From the camera’s perspective, you see the smoke from the second explosion a little ways down the street from the first, on the same side of the street. Two people were confirmed dead at that time, and bits and pieces of the reports of the blasts were beginning to scroll across the bottom of the screen. Some mentioned a fire at the JFK Library, which is located a few miles away from where the bombs were detonated. A witness said that he “saw a garbage can explode.” Also, some reports were stating that officials weren’t certain if these were “acts of domestic or foreign terrorism.” To me, it has all of the earmarks of a domestic attack – the supremacist fuck in Spokane, Washington, was going to set off a bomb at a parade honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a couple of years ago – this attack is too similar to the other which, fortunately, was caught in time. The sick bastard had loaded a backpack with ball-bearings and other metallic objects in order to do a lot of damage to innocent people, just like what happened today. Crazy, crazy shit…so much seems to be going on when it comes to these mindless, violent acts which are occurring on a daily basis as of late.

Some dude shot himself at an NRA-sponsored NASCAR racing event – how fitting! I just SMDH at that…it’s fucking karma from my viewpoint.

A number of white children have killed – or been killed – by senseless, preventable incidents involving morons with guns, but nobody is screeching about “white-on-white” violence and holding all whites responsible for every mass shooting, meth-lab explosion, DUII incident, or act of paedophilia or bestiality…again, it all boils down to karma. Shit like this happens all the time, and it has been happening in this country (and many others) for centuries – blaming non-white people for those acts is ridiculous, especially in those countries which are exclusively white – yes, they exist, and they aren’t violence-free utopias! People seriously need to get over themselves. Man is a violent beast and we do vicious things to each other, then pathetically attempt to justify those sick, reprehensible acts. We aren’t civil, yet pretend to be so! Ye gawds…

Now it seems that “a man of Arabian descent,” who was seen “running from the scene of the bombing with burns,” is being questioned in hospital. Interesting, but not surprising, that he was targeted for questioning. It’s exactly what happens to Black people when we go to any store with white proprietors: we are stalked, harassed, and questioned as if we’re born criminals, while whites with sticky fingers walk free. Shades of Oklahoma City, no? Disgusting racial profiling…Timothy McVeigh wasn’t automatically questioned outright! It will be interesting to see who claims responsibility for this, if anyone. * SIGH *

I’m waiting for the reports to be shown on the international news-sites that I read – the local and national ‘rags’ are just too predictable, anymore…

One final interesting note; today is a state holiday in Massachusetts: it is Patriots Day, celebrating and commemorating the first battles of the AmeriKKKan Revolution in 1775. I smell Teabaggers and the stench of so-called ‘patriotism,’ combined with the thinly-veiled racism of those who foment sedition and secession via sub rosa rhetoric and propaganda.

Let’s see what develops…

WhiteWatch: PacNW Edition 2013

It’s been a while since I posted about the white-trash fucktards in my neck of the woods! After a bit of a lull, they’ve been actin’ up and actin’ out…so have fun with the latest insanity from the white criminals in the Pacific Northwest! On with the show…

Here’s a paedophile named Logan Storm. This former middle school teacher was found in possession of horrendous child pornography, yet was only sentenced to wearing an electronic monitor device. KGW Newschannel 8 reports:

“A former Beaverton teacher convicted of federal child pornography charges was arrested Monday after being on the run since January, according to a newspaper report.

The Oregonian reported Tuesday that 37-year-old Logan Storm was arrested in Mexico and was expected to return to the United States by Wednesday.

Storm was indicted for encouraging child sexual abuse in August of 2010, after images of child pornography were discovered on his computer, according to police.

At a January 29 hearing, a judge ordered that Storm be monitored electronically instead of being held until his April sentencing. The next day his monitoring bracelet was found at a Troutdale park.”

It’s becoming so commonplace I can’t even be shocked about it anymore…I mean, seriously – come on. Here is a predatory child-rapist who is obviously a high-risk recidivist – who in their right mind would let him walk around in public, even if he were to be gagged and bound like Hannibal Lecter? The only ‘cure’ for scum like these is a full-metal-jacket to the cranial cavity…end of fucking story!!!     👿

Next, this cretinous scumbag was released from prison on Friday, 8 March after serving several years for armed robbery. His happy grandparents threw a party for him and offered him a room in their Renton-area home for the night. KGW reports on how he repaid their kindness:

“SEATTLE — Police continue to search for a man accused of killing his grandparents, who had just picked him up after his release from a Washington state prison, hosted a party in his honor and offered him a room in their Renton home for the night.

Police say 26-year-old Michael “Chad” Boysen is considered extremely dangerous and has tried to obtain guns.

Boysen was released from prison Friday after serving several years for robbery. King County Sheriff John Urquhart says Boysen’s grandparents — an 82-year-old man and 80-year-old woman — picked him up from prison and hosted a family “welcome home party” for him that night.

The couple was killed later Friday or early Saturday at their Renton home. Friends of the victims have identified them as Robert and Norma Taylor.”

As of today, he was apprehended and hospitalised after a day-long standoff in Lincoln City, Oregon – we’ll see how long he stays jailed! He will supposedly be extradited back to the state of Washington once he’s released from the hospital, but since he’s white he’ll only get a slap on the wrist…maybe even an ankle monitor, eh? Ye GAWDS…I mean, seriously – the comments of some people being interviewed were as intelligent as the one that went “THIS isn’t THAT sort of neighbourhood!” One asshat in Renton basically stated that they were glad that Michael had left the area and that he was basically “someone else’s problem.” On top of that, all they said about the murderer was that he was “sick and in need of help.” Gee…how WHITE of you to say that!!! I doubt that you were that gracious when Aaron Campbell was shot in the back by Portland Police…no, someone like you would say he deserved it, even though he was a bereaved young man who wasn’t quite in his right mind following the deaths of his mother and brother in a week’s time. Such is the racist view, and such is the cushion allotted by the privilege of white skin.

This fucked-up moron thought it would be a grand idea to unload a can of Mace in a Safeway store on Wednesday, 6 March, with no thought for her fellow shoppers who might have respiratory issues. KGW has the story here:

“ST. HELENS, Ore. — Two people were arrested Monday in connection with the HazMat emergency that left 31 customers sickened and shut down a Safeway store in St. Helens last week.

Investigators believe the suspects intentionally sprayed Mace inside the grocery store.

About 100 people were evacuated from the store after several people started coughing and complaining that their throats hurt.  Investigators said 31 victims had to get medical treatment at the scene and one patient was transported to a local hospital.”

Stupid little girl must have forgotten that she ceased being a minor, in the eyes of the law, the day she turned 18 years of age…too bad, so sad!     🙄

Here’s an interesting end to a strange story that began in December of last year. Aaron Griffin of Beaverton, Oregon, violently attacked his estranged wife at a Shilo Inn, but a passerby intervened and halted the assault. More from KGW:

“CORBETT, Ore. — A man whose body was discovered inside a car in a Columbia Gorge ravine off Crown Point was the suspect in a vicious December attack on his estranged wife in a Shilo Inn motel, police said.

He was identified Monday as Aaron Bryce-Dolve Griffin, 34, of Hillsboro.

Griffin’s body was discovered inside a wrecked vehicle at the bottom of a ravine near Crown Point.”

The number of white criminals walking around free is staggering – yet, non-whites in general, and Black people almost exclusively, are blamed for every crime that occurs in this country! It’s so fucking tiresome…

Here’s another genius – she thought it would be hilarious if she let her 22-month-old child inhale marijuana smoke from her bong while taking a video of the whole thing! I guess some people will stoop to anything to drive traffic to their respective blogs, vlogs, and twitterpated tripe!

Finally, the winner of the week: one Scott Fandrich, who stabbed a man in the chest and stomach, in broad daylight! More of the story from KGW:

“Police were called just before 5 p.m. to the report of a stabbing at 11502 Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard, said Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp. A woman told police she heard someone scream, “he’s got a knife,” as two men struggled in the parking lot of the Starbucks.

Bystanders detained a suspect, later identified as 55-year-old Scott C. Fandrich.

Seeing he had a knife, the crowd backed off until one person grabbed a shovel and was able to hold Fandrich at bay until police arrived, according to police reports.

Police said 71-year-old Jerry Kush was stabbed five times in the neck and abdomen, he was taken in for surgery. Another man, 49-year-old Jerry Nehnevaj, was stabbed in the leg, he was treated and released.”

The moon wasn’t full on Monday, so I guess there’s been an uptick in the local use of methamphetamine and bath salts!

Some Random Sunday Ramblings…

Aaaahhh…relaxing here on a quiet Sunday, listening to some music, sorting some books, and drinking coffee – I will switch over to tea in the afternoon. I decided to take a break and have a light lunch, then I’ll get back to looking through more boxes of books! For now, enjoy some interesting stuff I found whilst surfing the ‘webs.

First off, an article from Al-Jazeera about how Palestinian men and boys have been killed while attempting to get necessary goods such as food and medical supplies to people in the heavily-blockaded area:

“Gaza Strip – Gazans are crying foul after Egypt stepped up its campaign to wipe out an underground network of transportation tunnels by blasting raw sewage down them, sometimes with deadly results for Palestinian workers.

Some 2,000 men and boys work in the tunnel trade in the Gaza Strip. But over the past three months, more than 80 percent have lost the only work and benefits available in besieged Gaza, which remains stuck in an Israeli blockade.

That occurred after the government of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi ordered the destruction of the underground transportation network. As part of that effort, the military began dumping raw sewage into the passageways.

It’s the most serious – and arguably the most dangerous – attempt by Egypt to close down the tunnels since 2006, when Palestinians began digging the warrens after Israel sealed off its borders with Gaza following Hamas’ election victory.

An estimated 30 percent of goods that reach Gaza’s 1.7 million Palestinians come through the tunnels….

Israel’s air, sea and land blockade of Gaza has led to a booming tunnel excavation business that supplies basic food staples, medicine, and even cars to cut-off Palestinians.

Amer, who gave only one name as he feared reprisals for talking about the issue, sits against the wheel of a truck parked on the border area, waiting for a shipment to turn up. Every morning he comes from the north of Gaza to the south in search of work. He has been waiting for eight hours in vain, and is ready to return home empty-handed.

The owner of the tunnel where Amer works says it was destroyed by sewage pumped in by the Egyptian military.

For the past month Amer, 22, had mostly been hauling gravel, which like all construction materials is denied entry into Gaza by the Israeli government.

In the past, he could earn $26 per day, which helped feed his family and pay part of the school tuition for his two brothers.

When asked what he plans to do with work opportunities dried up, he looks frustrated. “I don’t know. This was the only way I could earn living and put food on the table for my brothers and mom. It may take some time to find another way,” says Amer.”

An opinion piece discusses the cognitive dissonance evident in the ‘leaders’ and members of the National Rifle Association (NRA):

“When the NRA finally broke its silence one week after the massacre of children in Newtown, its searing screed blasting everyone else for the carnage, and blaming everything but guns should have surprised no one.

Its proposed “solution” – protecting schools with armed guards – is ludicrously misguided in multiple ways, not least by the simple fact that Columbine High School was protected by two armed guards, to no avail, not to mention the statistical record, highlighted in a report from the Children’s Defense Fund, which shows that “the 5,740 children and teens killed by guns in 2008 and 2009 would fill more than 229 public school classrooms of 25 students each” – a rate of more than two Newtown massacres a week.

But if we want get to the core of the NRA’s madness, it helps enormously to consider its warped worldview on the one hand – where “the only way to stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun” – and its complete misunderstanding of rights on the other hand. The Manichean good man/bad man view of things entirely ignores the fact that the Newtown killer had apparently been a “good man” up until the massacre day. In this, he is not alone….According to NRA theology, guns are synonymous with freedom, the very basis of our democracy. But according to John Locke – whose Second Treatise lays out the philosophical foundations for government by consent of the governed – this gets things exactly backwards: It’s the inability of guns – or any other private means – to secure our freedom that establishes the foundation for our civil government, and the freedoms it secures. The NRA is not alone in its misunderstanding, of course. But they are in the vanguard of getting the basis of American freedom utterly and totally wrong.”

As a former member of the NRA I can attest to that mindset, having read their propaganda-filled ‘newsletters’ during the three years I ‘belonged’. Funny that it took them this long to get their own ‘Token Black’ spokesman, as this blog post from Davey D’s Hip-Hop Corner shows:

I found this latest ad from the NRA (National Rifle Association) featuring a Black man named Colion Noir stating that African-Americans needs guns to protect themselves to be intriguing on a number of levels.  He talks about how the government  which has a history of racism will not be there for us, hence protecting one’s family is on us..

A couple of things to think about..In the ad Colion mentions the racist government but then tells us how the proverbial hood thugs ‘Ray Ray‘ and ‘Pookie‘ got guns and that President Obama and the govt wont be there to protect us hence.. He says its best we get our guns..

To a degree some of that may be true, but lets look at the sleight of hand Noir and the NRA pulls..While many African-Americans need protection from inner city crime, they also need protection from the government that also terrorizes Black folks..

Colion Noir

Colion Noir

In the ad Noir omits and redirects an important part of history, by inferring that the racist US government allowed white supremacist groups like the KKK to come after us.. Let’s keep it real many of those folks in wearing those hoods were police and government officials.  In their height during the 1920s when Black folks were being lynched left and right, the Klan was a major force in politics…”

There is no question that we need to arm ourselves, but those who own gun stores, or sell guns at various shows and exhibitions, are white – at least, in my neck of the woods they are! Because of this, I have had a couple of unpleasant experiences when I went to purchase guns about five years ago. On top of that, the craziness that has exploded because inbred, white-trash fucktards are afraid that “Obama’s comin’ fer our guns!” is being directed at Black people who may desire a firearm or two for personal protection. White fears of armed Black citizens create an atmosphere where discrimination can again run rampant. For instance, I have cause to suspect that the so-called ‘background checks’ being required of all who wish to buy guns are only being used very selectively – and they are used to prevent non-whites in general, and Black people specifically, from legally obtaining firearms. Do some research about the Brady Bill. Look up the restrictions which guarantee the ineffectiveness of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms (ATF). In short, don’t believe the hype or the pandering of the NRA and other like groups, simply because they have a Black talking-head!

I’ll end with a trio of relaxing songs…enjoy!
