Batts Fails Drug Test And $50,000 Goes Up In Smoke

Earlier this week, I made the following suggestion regarding what the prosecutors in the Batts case should do following the funeral for his daughter that he killed:

An exit note for prosecutors: Drug test Batts tomorrow and find him in violation of the terms of his bond.

$50k down the toilet.

From my lips to God’s ears.

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – A father accused of shooting and killing his 11-year-old daughter has failed a drug test after bonding out of jail.

The District Attorney confirmed Friday Timothy Batts failed a drug test that he took on Monday. Batts tested positive for benzoylecgonie, the compound tested for to discover cocaine use.

There were numerous flower arrangements at the funeral talking about how Angel Timea was “flyin’ high”. Looks like she wasn’t the only one.

After the judge cut Batts’ $1 million bond in half to $500,000, he also instated multiple stipulations for when Batts bonded out. One of those was that Batts would be on supervised bond and would have to pass a drug test.

The judge had also said Batts could not pick up any new charges or he would be sent back to jail.

While this is encouraging and smart that the prosecutors sought the test, the same spineless Judge James Hunter that cut his bail in the first place is unlikely to have grown vertebrae in the week since he made himself a eunuch in front of racist mob waving a change.org petition.

Should the judge not extend another serving of black privilege to Mr. Batts, that $50,000 his bigoted, delusional supporters raised is burnt up like so much freebase.

I’ll make another prediction while I’m here. The lunatics at Mt. Zion Baptist and Batts’ pastors will demand that he be given yet another chance because how could he not be expected to get high before going to his daughter’s funeral and spending $50k to get out of jail. They are so personally invested at this point that he could kill all of his kids and they’d still be holding poetry slams and twerkfests at Limelight in his honor.

If he was already Cashville’s Greatest Dad after killing one kid, killing all of them should put him in the hall of fame.

There is nothing Christian about these people. Just racists hiding behind a bible and fleecing the desperate for their ducats.

He’s the untouchable St. Timothy after all. Executing God’s will one little girl at a time.

Hey Revvum Uncle Elder Starnes, is this “a tragedy or a transition” back to the penal colony? Scumbag.

Exit Thoughts: Have the police entertained the notion that Batts may have been on drugs at the time of the shooting? One simply does not start using cocaine out of nowhere much less have access like this at the ready.

What is certain is that all of his supporters either didn’t know about his drug use or did know and don’t care. For all the talk about how he started going to church and made a U-turn in his life, it seems it was more of a roundabout. And the only leaf he turned over was made out of cocoa.

All of this comes full circle on the motive of the shooting. Was it a paranoia induced accident or was there something that he didn’t want his daughter talking about.

And who was he on the phone talking to prior to the shooting?

The truth will come out. Unfortunately, Batts’ church folk will try to hinder the truth coming out as much as possible because they’ll look like fools, corrupt, or worse.

And one more parting shot for our local media. This is an international level story now. From my observations, only the Tennessean sent a reporter to cover the funeral. I’ve seen more coverage in the UK than at WKRN, WSMV, or the Nashville Scene.

You all are really giving Batts, his family, and his churches the kid gloves treatment here. Why? Is it the same reason why the judge cut his bail in half? Because that’s my guess. You don’t want to ask anyone any tough questions or make them answer anything about the facts that have refuted his flimsy alibi because he’s black and you’re scared.

The Curious Case of Timothy Batts

It’s not often that I am completely confounded when watching a court case unfold but, I must admit, the child murder of Timea Batts has me shaking my head with each passing day.

This is a supplement to the Dindu Nuffin post below. Timothy Batts, a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, shot and killed his 11 year old daughter moments after she walked into the front door of her home following her first day of school.

A controversy began when Batts lied to police about the circumstance of the murder and, while his daughter was dying, absconded to Nashville to hide the murder weapon which has since been recovered. He claimed he was startled out of sleep by what he thought was an intruder. However, home video taken from a security camera inside of the home showed him wide awake, talking on the phone, and walking around the house with the gun five minutes before the shooting.

Bail was set at $1,000,0000 for reckless homicide and a plethora of side charges given his prior history.

A mob of family members, acquaintances, and assorted bigots (or as they are usually referred to in a courtroom setting as “accomplices”) descended on a spineless and cowardly Sumner County judge who reduced the bail by half. The “victory” for the bigoted mob prompted an embarrassing courtrroom outburst like it was a sporting event – completely unmoored by the fact that an 11 year old black girl who should have been finishing her first week of school was having formaldehyde pumped through her body and needing to pick out a nice dress for her funeral.

It took less than a day for Batts’ accomplices, excuse making cultists from Long Hollow Baptist Church, and various internet racists to crowdsource the $50,000 and post bond.

What happened upon Batts’ release shocked me for the second time in a week. So high are the bigots in Batts’ circle of friends and acquaintances on the notion that they have somehow stuck it to Whitey, that they thought it was a good idea to livestream his release from jail on Facebook.

Cel-e-brate good times, come on!

In the link above, a jubilant Batts can be seen laughing and, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say, clowning around with his supporters.

A flyer was also being circulated for a fundraiser at the hoodrat nightclub Limelight with a picture of stoic Batts and ghostly photoshopped Timea emblazoned with the title “Ca$hville’s Greatest Dad Appreciation” for this coming Thursday night (Aug. 18th).

You cannot make this shit up. The Runners Up to the Ca$hville’s Greatest Dad contest are literally everyone else who didn’t murder their kids last week.

Call me old fashioned. If I had just killed my daughter, I’d probably be borderline suicidal. I would have been on suicide watch in jail. If under threat of life in prison or the death penalty, at the very least I would be somber and likely in tears in the courtroom or in front if cameras.

Batts is cold-blooded and remorseless by all observations.

The Timea Batts funeral is today. Hopefully, the morticians and undertakers will specify that there is to be no video of the ceremonial pouring of Hennessy over her corpse or blowing of blunt smoke in her face as is often associated with tribal custom. Don’t judge.

That’s the jury’s job.

An exit note for prosecutors: Drug test Batts tomorrow and find him in violation of the terms of his bond.

$50k down the toilet.

In closing, Long Hollow Baptist Church is a den of vipers and the congregation fills the offering plates with tithings to Satan.

Naturally, the dipshits at the Nashville Scene think this is about lack of gun control and are taking a stance that this entire incident was an accident on blind faith alone without any investigation or consideration of the numerous and damning holes in Batts’ alibi or behavior immediately afterwards. Or, that he should have still been in jail following a 2012 attempted murder. Because Journalism ™.

Quiz: How Much Didn’t Can A Dindu Do If A Dindu, Dindu Nuffin?

Why are these people cheering?

a) Their cousin was just selected inmate of the month at Riverbend Maximum Security Prison

b) The long awaited return of Popeye’s Beer Can Rip’N Chicken.

c) A man who shot and killed his 11 year old daughter after she returned from her first day of school and lied to police about it got his bond reduced from $1,000,000.00 to $500k after a spineless judge bowed to the whim of a mob armed with a change.org online petition.

The answer is, of course, “c”.

A man shot his 11 year old daughter as she walked in the door from her first day of school, lied about how it happened, tampered with evidence, and then thousands of people sign a petition and hundreds show up to court and cheer like they just won the Pick 3 because they don’t want him to face justice because he shares their skin color.

There is no other way to look at this one. And I’m sorry to say that I tried to find one that would pass the smell test. There aren’t any. He was wide awake and caught on home security video pacing around his house with a gun when he claimed he was startled from a sound sleep by an intruder.

The change.org petition was started by the appropriately named “Greedy Gettinoff”.

Even if it was an accident, how is this behavior in the courtroom even remotely appropriate given that an 11 year old girl is lying in the morgue but you’re happy you think babydaddy is escaping Whitey’s justice system?

The petition continues, “He loved his three daughters dearly and was a great father figure in her life. We ask that he is able to attend his daughter funeral service and have a lowered bond. His bond is 1 million dollars and that’s insane for a accident we need Timothy batts home for his grieving family.”

The petition writers insist that Batts “would never intentionally hurt his family” and ask for signatures to advocate “for the equality of punishments being handed out by our judicial system. Same crimes are being committed but blacks are handed 20% longer jail sentences then whites.”

“Equality of punishments”? He was just arrested two days ago. He won’t even go before a jury for probably at least 6 months to a year. They ought to be ashamed for throwing the race card in on this but they are incapable of shame.

So remember that li’l churrens. When Daddy, Uncle, or Mama’s Boyfriend is playing with illegal handgun even though he’s a convicted felon, if he shoots you with it then the lead pastor at Long Hollow Baptist Church is going to stand in front of the cameras, God, and everybody to make sure he doesn’t get punished for it.

Disgusting behavior by all of these people. Disgusting and surprising for once.

If Little Timea had yelled “hands up, don’t shoot” would you all be torn between looting the Dollar General Store or demanding that the police arrest the father because Black Lives Matter?

Your cheers have told us that they don’t matter. Not even to you.

WTW Weekend: Great Moments In White Trash Advertising

Picasso famously said that lesser artists borrow and that great artists steal. As I pulled up behind a company van in morning traffic, I was reminded of that. So what to make of this local company’s logo?

There’s something so familiar about that. I can’t quite put my fing..oh, wait:

It’s a blued up version of the Enron symbol:

Nothing says “trust us” with your electrical needs like shamelessly stealing the logo of a disgraced energy concern that was once the largest bankruptcy in the history of the country and led to one of the most destructive pieces of accounting legislation (Sarbanes-Oxley) in history.

But fret not. This isn’t the second coming of Enron, it’s Enron squared!

Next up, Manson Family Brand Pork Sausages. Every morning that starts off with “Death to the Pigs” is going to be a great day. #BLM approved.

Lady Vols Not Ladyboys

I saw this riding on a car’s bumper the other day and had to do a double-take.

From the Department of Unfortunate Cross-branding:


I knew UT had a recent brouhaha over wanting to fine, expel, and genitally mutilate students before sending them to re-education camps for not calling he/she/its by some new pronouns they invented five minutes ago but this?

It’s too insidious. They’re the Lady Vols not the Ladyboys. Cameltoes not camel’s nose.

We don’t want to know that your Ford F-150 secretly wants to be a convertible Mazda Miata or that your automatic Audi TT would rather be a stick. Maybe you get off on teasing those cisgenders at Pep Boys with your shocks and struts. But the only one who should know if you’ve blown a tranny should be your mechanic.

Come on, people. Pick a side.

Trumptards Face The Puppy Blender

It’s been kind of entertaining watching Insty veer to the right during the Obama years.

He’s sat out a lot of the feuding following his addition of a comments section especially during the Rise Of Trump. But this morning’s troll of Trump’s statement criticizing the US on civil rights as an excuse to not condemn Erdogan’s violent purge of the remaining secularists in Turkey is sure to produce 300 comments:

Well, it’s a standard lefty talking point — those tend to come, ultimately, from Soviet propagandists whether the talkers know it or not, and usually they don’t — and it’s one that’s been echoed by President Obama with his reminders to Americans not to get on our high horse (the Crusades, you know) and his disparaging of American exceptionalism.

The big news here is that a Republican candidate is saying it, but then, Trump spent most of his life as a Democrat.

He’s not just been a lifelong Democrat. He’s repeating Soviet propagandist talking points Democrats have been using for years. Perhaps some salt on that wound will help?

It’s ok though because Wall ™ and America’s going to be great again or something.

Reynolds isn’t wrong. It’s just odd that he’s deciding to take this tack so soon after the RNC convention given how many of his readers and commenters are still rolling around in the post-coital Cleveland cuddle puddle.

It’s Called Mempiss For A Reason

So I guess Kellogg’s can change their Frosted Flakes mascot to Tony The Tinkler:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A video has surfaced on the Internet of a man urinating on a Kellogg assembly line.

It happened in 2014 at a facility in Memphis, Kellogg spokesperson Kris Charles said.

The video was uploaded by worldstarhiphop.com. Its content is highly graphic.

Kellogg is looking into the incident, and the FDA has started a criminal investigation.

The video was shot during the same time the company and the workers union fell into a nasty labor dispute and those employees were locked out.

At least it wasn’t the pipelayers union.

But if you’ve eaten Rice Krispies in the last year and a half, chances are they were impacted by the pouty union’s tinkle tirade. Not that they’re going to have jobs anyway when that plant closes and they’re put out on a permanent bathroom break.

Thanks again, Mempiss for living down to your reputation and up to your name.

Six Meat Facebook Sirloin Tip Of The Day

Maybe it’s the holiday weekend, I just don’t know, but I feel the need to offer this bit of unsolicited social media advice to no one in particular:

When you post on Facebook or wherever how happy you are with your husband, wife, family, blah, blah, blah – we all know that means that you just had a fight and are teetering on the edge of breaking up or getting a divorce. That this public professing of your undying, altruistic love and spiritual fulfillment somehow masks that you know your significant other monitors your Facebook postings and friends like a jealous hawk.

But that this highly public declaration will soothe and balm the nerves of whatever just happened. I assure you – it does not and now we all know. The more over-the-top the declaration, the sooner the separation. It would have to be with such ham-fisted attempts to manipulate.

Please stop. Both volunteering to lie to others and yourself. Keep your shit tight and work it out in private. Nothing ever gets better by inviting the world into your own personal problems.

You’re welcome.

Tennessee Escapes The Tyranny of Good Intentions

Insure Tennessee dies a natural death in the Tennessee state legislature.

Tennessee will not expand health benefits to hundreds of thousands of low-income residents, with state senators rebuking Gov. Bill Haslam’s controversial health care proposal.

The Senate Health and Welfare Committee voted against passing Haslam’s Insure Tennessee. Only four of the 11 committee members voted in favor of the plan.

The vote comes minutes after House Speaker Beth Harwell said she doesn’t think there are enough votes in the House to pass the plan.

“I don’t think I have the support,” Harwell told reporters as she walked away from the House chamber Wednesday.

Sweet freedom. Now Governor Haslam can go back to working with Mayor Bloomberg on taking our guns away.

The End of America Sale – Everything Must Go, Go, Go!

A bit of a break from my usual type of post.  Today, I attended both a gun show and the Gun Appreciation Day rally in Nashville.  Both were depressingly optimistic and for different reasons.  The latter for a sparse crowd due from poor planning and lack of advertising to being scheduled during 3 other large events downtown.  The former for the exact opposite.

Hendersonville Line UPSorry, Detroit:  They aren’t here for food stamps and Section 8 vouchers.

The gun show was fully prepared for a large crowd.  I arrived a half hour prior to opening and there were already lines of people down the block at all of their fairgrounds entrances.  I’d estimate today’s crowd to be 10,000 – 15,000.  A gentleman in front of me said that he had attended a show in Franklin, TN the prior week and that while Saturday was jampacked that Sunday was much lighter.  To be certain, Saturday is for bitterly clinging to your gun and Sunday is for bitterly clinging to your religion.  Also, the shelves were cleaned out by Sunday anyway so playoff football for the agnostics.  By the time I left two hours later, I could barely get out of my parking spot and the lot itself was clogged all the way to the main road out where a line of cars were waiting in traffic all the way down the street just to get into the parking lot.

If the Gun Appreciation Day rally at the War Memorial Plaza had a crowd the size of the Hendersonville Gun Show it would have been an unequivocal and unignorable success.  As such, I would put a number between 500-600.  Despite the fact that there did not appear to be any charismatic leader or structure aside from the few speakers taking their turn to say “don’t tread on me” and one enthusiastic attendee encouraged to participate in the government’s efforts at confiscation one bullet at a time.  No PA system.  Only a shared megaphone.

Gun Appreciation Day Nashville

These events should ostensibly be catering to the same crowd and while one is talking about doing the other IS actually doing.  I support the 2nd Amendment versus I-am-going-to-buy-a-bunch-of-guns-and-ammo-this-instant.  That’s a lot more Do-ey and a lot less Talk-y going on.  Actions speak louder.

Why couldn’t they be at the same place or same general area?   A pooling of interests to the benefit of all.  I’ll digress on that point.

However, I am disgusted by the behavior of the dealers at these gun shows.  Utterly and completely.  365 days a year they peddle the Land of the Free and you’ll take my guns from my cold dead hands bullshit but then, when the government actually starts to threaten both their livelihoods, their customers, their future and their purported value system, it’s like trying to buy a gallon of clean water at the Super Dome on Katrina Day 3.  Price gouging is not capitalism no matter how many amber waves of panic-buying suckers you extort.

I left without buying so much as a single shell and all of the dealers can eat the peanuts as they say.  I heard of some guy buying 100 rounds of .38 special for $80.  Unless they are coated with mercury and Super AIDS, a sucker and his money were lucky to get together in the first place.

Bullet prices doubled in less than two weeks.  I bought a Saiga 12 gauge shotgun six weeks ago for $630.  This week?  From the same exact dealer, the same exact shotgun – $1189.  Used SKS’s – $550.00.  Brand new AK-47’s – $900-$1100.  200% markup is currently the rule and while the commies may cheer that the gun nuts pockets are getting lighter, this is where my optimism comes in:  If your money is worthless, these commodities have a value beyond rubies.  This country is armed to the fucking teeth.  A gun for every hand and foot.  The worst that can happen to the gun nuts is that a ban doesn’t go into effect.  The value of their investments would plummet immediately.  But we know that is not going to happen.  Obama Organizing for UnAmerica is trying to manufacture consent through legislator intimidation what Coward In Chief doesn’t have the guts to say himself despite his media apparatchiks laying down suppressing fire through their high capacity news magazines and video clips.

We seem to be one event away from a flashpoint and people are more prepared now than they were six months ago.  A sadly good thing.  Sad that that’s where we are and good that they are more prepared for it.   All it takes is some enterprising yahoo to apply the Bush Doctrine to some gungrabbers or for the gungrabbers to Lead From Behind on some unsuspecting citizen.  They are coming for you.  Why wait for them to fire the first shot?  If they truly thought the Right was a bunch of crazies they would seek to placate them as much as they do the real terrorists in Libya, Egypt and everywhere else.  Hell, they’d give you the gun!

Times Is Up Fool

You’ve got to earn their capitulance.  This is just behaviorism.  Our government is spending your tax money to arm Mexican drug cartels and al Qaeda in Libya and Syria without a second thought.  American citizens spending their own money to exercise their rights is cause for alarm though.  Who’s the real enemy again?

Can Peyton Manning Lower The Employment Rate?

Only if he drops out of the work force permanently:

It is so sad and so hard to write it again, but it’s true: Peyton Manning is done in Indianapolis.

After listening to Manning Monday night, after listening to owner Jim Irsay characterize Manning Thursday as “a politician” who should keep his concerns “in house,” there’s no other conclusion to be reached by a sane, sober human being: Manning’s days in Indianapolis are over, and they have been over for quite some time. On a day when the introduction of Chuck Pagano as the Colts new head coach should have been the story, Irsay stole the headlines.

The NFL is a cut-throat industry where the all-American, clean living, do-everything-right poster boy for your organization and the League is tossed out in the street so a mediocre team like the Colts can hope to get Luck-y by throwing the dick of their future on the craps table of the next Draft?  Say it ain’t so!

My heart aches for the state of Indiana.  For about two seconds.  Any way.

If anyone in earshot can communicate this to Manning:  Come home to Tennessee.

Quit designing video games and do it for real.  The University of Tennessee is in such a state of disrepair that they’re having to layoff police officers because the team isn’t even worth arresting anymore.  That burglary is going unsolved.

Take this game to another level.  Use UT to be a flagship student-athlete program where you recruit the talent and bring them up through the ranks to create a next NFL generation with a little more humility and a little less pitbull fighting.

Be the anti-Spurrier.

Obama Headquarters on Rosa Parks Boulevard – October 7, 2008

 

I think about this every day when I drive by this prime piece of real estate a stone’s throw from the state capitol and across the street from the Farmer’s Market.  Three and a half years later.

Fret Not, America: ***LIVE*** From the We Stand With Gibson Rally

Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn warns the bikers over their carbon emissions.

Live simulcast starts at 1PM CST through the official We Stand With Gibson site.

What is it about American Exceptionalism that the soon-to-be ex-President Urkel H. Anti-Christ, Jr. hates so much?  Much like the impetus for the astroturfed “Occupy Wall Street” mob scenes, it has a lot to do with whether your check cleared the DNC.  Like the radio payola scandals, it also appears that federal agents are taking requests with mercenary aplomb from the far Left end of your dial.

The abbreviated version is that earlier this year Obama’s eco-stormtroopers at the hilariously misnamed US Dept. of Fish and Wildlife attacked the guitar manufacturer during a daring daylight raid, guns draw on employees, out of fear that Gibson’s inventory of awesome would have been flushed down their toilets had they simply knocked on the door with a search warrant.

Makes you proud to be an American, doesn’t it?  I mean it’s not selling automatic weapons to Mexican Drug Cartels in order to pin gang violence on US gun owners but it’s a nice touch.

At issue seems to be that Gibson employs documented American citizens to do some fit and finish work on the wood used in their instruments.  Americans who should be drawing patriotic unemployment checks. 

In an interview with Beck radio affiliate KMJ 105.9 in Fresno, California, Juszkiewicz told host Chris Daniel that the government made the point “explicitly:”

CHRIS DANIEL:  Mr. Juszkiewicz, did an agent of the US government suggest to you that your problems would go away if you used Madagascar labor instead of American labor?

HENRY JUSZKIEWICZ:  They actually wrote that in a pleading.

CHRIS DANIEL:  Excuse me?

HENRY JUSKIEWICZ:   They actually wrote that in a pleading.

CHRIS DANIEL:  That your problems would go away if you used Madagascar labor instead of our labor?

HENRY JUSKIEWICZ:  Yes, yeah. They said that explicitly.

It’s not that the wood is harvested from the Tree of Souls from Avatar though if it were it would probably rock your face off and simultaneously get your cats pregnant.  And it’s not that a foreign government lodged a complaint.  No, US Fish and Wildlife decided to pro-actively enforce another country’s laws and pervert one of our own when the other country did not think it was a problem.  Gee, I wonder why.

One of Gibson’s leading competitors is C.F. Martin & Company. The C.E.O., Chris Martin IV, is a long-time Democratic supporter, with $35,400 in contributions to Democratic candidates and the DNC over the past couple of election cycles. According to C.F. Martin’s catalog, several of their guitars contain “East Indian Rosewood.” In case you were wondering, that is the exact same wood in at least ten of Gibson’s guitars.

The Gibson facility wasn’t raided over allegations of tax evasion, charges of embezzlement, or even something as drab as child labor. Not even close. It was raided over what the DOJ deems an inability to follow a vague domestic trade law in India (one that apparently the Indian government didn’t seem too concerned about enforcing) regarding a specific type of wood. Not illegal wood, just wood with obscenely specific procedural guidelines.

While armed federal agents assert prosecutorial discretion to enforce another country’s protectionist laws.  We all know what this is.  The same thing that happened to car dealerships that contributed to Republicans after the bailout.  The same thing that happened to Ford when the White House demanded that they retract their anti-bailout commercials.

The Chicago Way may be fine for blues music and deep dish pizza but it’s  un-American in a Presidency.

Everybody lend your support to this international icon today being forced to decide whether they should  layoff all of it’s US employees to stay in the good graces of our Gangster Government or fight the good fight until this administration is thrown out on its red diaper rash in 13 months.

B-Mac Update: (more…)

I Hate Saying I Told You So

We’re a little over a year removed from the Great Nashville Flood of 2010.  Through it all, I remember the countless visions of neighbors helping neighbors.    That didn’t include Police Chief Ronal Serpas who abandoned the city a week after the rains hit for greener, golder and purpler pastures.

No, that was the first sign that the city was recovering.  As I watched the turd of his ascendancy, buoyed by the rising waters of the Cumberland River, as it floated towards the bowl of New Orleans – I couldn’t help but feel sorry for them

May 15th, 2010 “And This Little Piggy Went Wee, Wee, Wee All The Way Home”

What has happened (to New Orleans)recently???  I’m at a loss unless…wait…there was something that happened just this last week:

Nashville Police Chief Ronal Serpas takes job in New Orleans

Did the bouquet resemble fried bologna, Old Spice, jowl sweat and feet?  Because if it did, I think we’ve found our culprit.

For a city that prides itself on bacchanalian revelry, the stale sock of Chief Teetotaler is about to drape across the nose of your good time for the foreseeable future.

I’d say to prepare for the jump in violent crime and unsolved murders too (our’s is close to 40% now), but thanks to the Legacy of Naginomics you all should be ready to make that drunken, hobo stumble into Chicago gangland numbers.

Congratulations to your up and coming funeral home industry and may it replace all the French Quarter businesses forced to close once he starts enacting the same DUI laws that he did here.

Damn, it sucks to be so right.

 

New Orleans murder studies show rate is 10 times national average

Published: Saturday, March 26, 2011, 1:45 PM

Murder.

How prevalent is it? How do police stop it? What can be done?

The two analyses, the result of months-long studies conducted late last year by the federal government, attempt to shed light on the myriad factors that conspire to make New Orleans the nation’s most murderous city.

With reams of data and statistics, federal experts determined that New Orleans’ homicide rate is 10 times higher than the national rate and five times higher than the rate for comparably sized cities.

This is just for starters.  Serpas has only been there a year.  His solution is going to be to break out a computer and start feeding it garbage statistics to make you forget all those bodies you’ll be seeing on the news every night by putting a COMSTAT graphic on the Internet to make you think he’s doing something.  And prepare  for a full-scale assault by NOPD to bring the full, pedantic force of traffic law enforcement down on the heads of the citizenry scofflaws  to solve the murder problem.

It makes sense as Serpas was recently and curiously cleared of any wrongdoing in a scandal where the contract for reviewing traffic tickets was awarded to his best friend and a myriad of other double-dipping, doling out sweetcake off-duty police work assignment scandals that might sink the average bullshitter.

Indeed, NOLA.  It sucks to be you.  Flush Serpas now before he starts lulling you into a false sense of security by repeatedly defining rapes and sexual assaults  down to “Matters Of Record” like he did to juke the stats here.

 

 

Al Qaeda’s Poll Tax Disenfranchises Local Jihadi

Tennessee took a step towards cleaner elections this week with the passage of a Voter ID bill that burdens those citizens exercising their franchise with the same requirements as those to buy cigarettes and alcohol.  In other words, a “backdoor poll tax” as demagogued by local white trash House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner.

Poll Taxes, it seems, are breaking out all over in the mid-state.  Take the plight of this at-risk youth:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.A former TSU student on trial for murder in Arkansas said he killed a man in East Nashville in 2006.

Abdulhakim Muhammad is accused of killing one Army soldier and wounding another outside a military recruiting station in 2009. He’s now confessed to shooting a Nashville man as part of a “Jihad Operation.”

The father of Carlos Bledsoe believes his son became an extremist Muslim during his time in Nashville.

Muhammad did travel to Yemen after attending Tennessee State University. He said he is a member of Al-Qaeda, but detectives haven’t found any proof of that claim.

In other words, Defendant Muhammad’s undocumented membership in Al Qaeda has denied him Allah’s glory by our racist police department.  The failure of both Al Qaeda and the state of Tennessee to preserve Mr. Muhammad’s civil rights and to allow him to express himself fully because of his minority status calls back to the days of Jim Crow, Bull Connor, firehoses and german shepherds.  Selma ™ even.

Of course, Mr. Muhammad was in no way radicalized by Nashville’s peace palace the Al-Farooq Islamic Center whose annual Hate Crime Hoax performance art has entertained and educated the city through their self-deprecating DIY vandalism. The Al-Farooq Peace Palace has also posted a strongly worded rebuke to Mr. Muhammad’s black father of “malicious, xenophobic allegations”.

Al-Farooq Islamic Center would like to take this opportunity to refute strongly the malicious, xenophobic allegation purpoted against our center during the congressional hearing addressing homegrown islamic terrorism. As many of you might have heard, a certain mr. Melvin Bledsoe, have accused our center of teaching radicalism to our kids. These allegations are not only baseless, but they are also absurd and contrary to what Al-Farooq Islamic Center stands for.

Well that settles that.  When a 19 year old converts to Islam and wins an all expenses paid trip to a terrorist training camp in Yemen and returns to murder a US soldier at a recruiting facility then  it was obviously underwritten by his summer lawn mowing business and at the urging of those no-goodniks at the Elks Lodge.

I hope the Nashville City Paper, the Nashville Scene and The Nashville Post (ed: I repeat myself) will run cover story after cover story to bring attention to the plight of our state’s under-documented Islamic jihadi enthusiasts.

If they don’t get free government issued IDs so that we can identify the real ones from the pretenders then those really dangerous Nazi, KKK Republicans have already won or something.

 

Was Mary Mancini Not Available?

Ron Ramsey is officially too stupid to remain Lt. Governor of Tennessee. Quite a feat in and of itself.

How else to explain naming a Liberadio-ing, democrat voting, Daily Kossifying, Dave Weigel worshipping, never-miss-an-opportunity-to-cheap-shot-a-conservative House Donkey like Adolph Klanheider to be his Communications Director?

To paraphrase The Godfather:

Don Corleone: [kisses Michael] Listen, whoever comes to you with this Klainheider recommendation, he’s the traitor. Don’t forget that.

You’re going to live to regret putting the enemy in charge of your message, Boots.

Palin Hacker Prepares To Run Backwards Through A Cornfield Naked

If it makes you feel any better, 99% of those corn cobs vote Democrat.

Don’t worry, Li’l Davey.  The state’s going to provide this Kernell all the butter and salt he needs.

A federal judge has shot down a former University of Tennessee student’s bid to have tossed out convictions in the illegal access of Sarah Palin’s personal e-mail account during the 2008 presidential election.

[…]

Davies argued it was nothing more than a college prick prank by a rank assbag computer amateur. Federal prosecutors assigned a more sinister motive, arguing Kernell, the son of long-time Memphis Democratic state Rep. Mike Kernell, went searching for politically damaging information but came up empty-handed.

The feds slapped Kernell with four felony charges. At his trial in April jurors rejected a wire fraud charge outright, reduced a felony illegal e-mail access charge to a misdemeanor, deadlocked on an identity theft count and convicted Kernell of the felony charge of anticipatory obstruction of justice.

It’s always the “cover-up” that gets you.  It has dibs. But after the cover-up gets you then Jamal does.

Riddle me this:  If Li’l Davy gets his ass kernel popped in Cell block 6 will it make a sound?  I’m guessing yes.  First a wimper, followed by some open weeping before Big Bear’s squeaky bed springs gently rock him to sleep.  Maybe that will be more “his type”.

Night, night ya jag.  It’s a real shame that a few of your unscrupulous supporters can’t go with you in a show of solidarity.

People For The Ethical Treatment of Allah

Not ones to let an opportunity to publicity whore go unmolested, however tangential.  Those meth-worn lot lizards of PETA have hiked up their skirts and are flashing their road beef tofu at passersby at the site where the Non-Existent Hate Crime didn’t take place at the Islamic Center in Murfreesboro to Raise Awareness ™.  Of what?  I have no idea.

I’m sure it’s only unintentional that their organization, which is about as anti-human as they come, would consider Muslims to be animals in need of protection.  Yet, there they are:

PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk asked Sheikh Ossama Bahloul on Thursday if the organization could place a sign at the construction site promoting compassion and understanding for all individuals.”The artwork features images of peas arranged to represent different religious symbols, including the Christian cross, the Muslim star and crescent, the Hindu Aum, and the Jewish Star of David, and reads, ‘Give Peas a Chance”

Oh, that’s right.  They went there.  Visual Whirled Peas.  

“Human beings of all nationalities and religions often feel powerless in the face of all the discrimination and violence in the world, yet every time that we sit down to eat, we can help stop suffering by choosing a nonviolent meal,” the PETA president adds. “While opting for a veggie burger or falafel over a chicken kebab or steak sandwich won’t create instant global peace, it will reduce the sum total of suffering and make one think about what more is possible.”

Non-violence starts on your plate.  If only those 19 hijackers had been eating a soy burger they wouldn’t have crashed those carbon-chugging jet planes into the Twin Mosque Centers in New York and the Mosque Prayer Room at the Pentagon before crashing Flight 93 into the mosque field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Of course, PETA was always willing to look the other way when it came to their friends in Big Pea.  Jim “The Jolly Green Giant” Scofield had long been dogged by scandal after it was revealed that he harvested his crop with the help of illegal child labor.

Guillermo “Sprout” Lopez’s tell-all book “Little Hands:  An Immigrant’s Tale” aimed for the hearts but hit the stomachs after an OSHA investigation revealed working conditions that culminated in the 1993 E. Coli outbreak that the pea industry has never fully recovered from and a DHS report of “sexual battery by an authority figure” that netted Mr. Scofield a 13 year sentence at a federal maximum security prison in Adelanto, California.  He’s slated for parole just in time for the tenth anniversary of 9/11.  How convenient.

But Ms. Newkirk would probably prefer to forget that sad chapter in her zealous attempts to lobby for Big Pea.

As Lopez’s courtroom testimony confirmed, “He would get Peas whenever he quit fighting”.
