PK Note: To learn the truth of South Africa, pick up The Scourge of the ANC or (though extremely rare)Land of Sorrow: 20 Years of Farm Attacks in South Africa.

Previously on SBPDL: Black-Run South Africa ‘Democratically’ Decides to Amend Their Constitution to Expropriate White-Owned Land Without Compensation…

Twenty six years after the fall of Apartheid in South Africa and the implementation of black rule (a nation truly proving democracy is nothing more than a racial headcount), we get the consequences of a people rejecting whites and mistakenly believing they can maintain the civilization and infrastructure they have inherited. [Eskom tells municipalities to prepare for stage 8 load-shedding, MyBroadBand.co.za.com, January 13, 2020]:

Eskom was forced to implement stage 6 load shedding in December – its worst-ever blackout – sending the country into a panic as not many people were aware of what that stage actually meant for them.

Municipalities too were caught off-guard, with Johannesburg electricity distributor City Power saying at the time that it had no load-shedding schedule for Stage 6.

The year is 2020, and generation and maintenance challenges continue to mount at the state company which generates 96% of South Africa’s electricity.

As a result, all municipalities have been advised to adjust their load shedding schedule up to stage 8, the Buffalo City Municipality said in a statement on Saturday (11 January).

With each stage representing a curtailment of 5% of the national load, stage 8 will equate to 40% of the load being shed, the municipality said.

Under the previous load shedding schedule, four stages were implemented with between 1,000 MW and 4,000 MW of the national load shed – with ‘stage 4’ being the worst possible outcome for South African consumers.

Stage 4 will typically result in consumers being without power for a total of 24 hours spread out over four days, or a total of 48 hours over eight days.

However, Eskom has since revised its schedule to include up to eight different stages, and as much as 8,000 MW shed from the national grid.

During stage 8 load shedding, consumers could be without power for 48 hours over four days, or 96 hours in eight days.

Prepare for the worst

As municipalities prepare for the logistics of stage 8 load shedding, an energy expert warned that South Africans should prepare for the worst – regular stage 6 load-shedding, and 10-hour daily blackouts.

EE Business Intelligence MD Chris Yelland said Eskom’s declining energy availability factor (EAF) is a cause for serious concern.

The energy availability factor shows the percentage of Eskom’s generation capacity which is available, taking into account planned maintenance and unplanned breakdowns.

Yelland said the EAF data for 2019 paints a grim picture of ageing, under-maintained, and stressed power plants.

“The EAF for the full 2019 calendar year has hit a new record low of 67%, compared to the EAF of 72% for the 2018 calendar year,” said Yelland.

He added that the EAF for week 50 and week 51 of 2019 also hit record all-time lows of 59.7% and 58.0% respectively.

Citing an ageing fleet that requires higher levels of maintenance, Eskom has warned that the power system remains vulnerable and volatile, adding that getting back to stability will take some time.

One score and less than a decade after the implementation of black-rule in South Africa, the nation is advancing toward de-electrification.

What a way to prepare to kick off Black History Month in the USA with such… electric news!

Wakanda, as we all know, isn’t real. Neither can western civilization or the advancements in technology by whites in South Africa be either maintained or even kept alive by a nation powered by the mandate of black economic empowerment (BEE).

Remember, democracy is just a racial headcount, and though white people built South Africa (a nation once boasting nuclear weapons and the first open heart surgery), the now black-run nation is fueled by the black economic empowerment, which mandates affirmative action on behalf of the nearly 91 percent black residents of the nation.

Discrimination to benefit the majority, at the expense of the white majority… and the nation’s electrical grid.

Races reversed, the biggest story in America. Right? You know what happens when a black individual engages in a mass shooting? Silence from the corporate media. They can’t be promoting racial stereotypes, can they?

Confirming them wouldn’t be productive, right?

No narrative (white gun owner, with obviously racist leanings, engaging in a mass shooting to justify his small sexual organ) to advance…

Only hours before the day tens of thousands of white people would peacefully march with AR-15s and other semi-automatic weapons in Richmond, Virginia, defending their right to bear arms (defending the 2nd Amendment in the face of tyranny), a black criminal in Missouri would once again remind the nation why the 2nd Amendment should be null and void for blacks [Police identify gunman in mass shooting outside Kansas City bar, KCTV5.com, January 20, 2020]:

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) — Police continue to investigate after a mass shooting took place at a nightclub Sunday night.

Two people were killed, one of whom was the shooter. At least 15 people were injured.

The shooter is identified as 29-year-old
of Kansas City, Missouri. He has a record meaning he shouldn’t have had a gun, but he has several.

Police said that an armed private security guard at the club shot and killed Swift about 11:30 p.m. just outside of 9ine Ultra Lounge located in the 4800 block of Noland Road.

The victim is 25-year-old Raeven A. Parks of Kansas City.

At least three of the 15 injured victims are in critical condition.

Police say they have not yet interviewed all of the victims and do not yet know whether all were injured by gunfire.

Investigators recovered multiple firearms at the scene. It appears the suspect and the security guard were the only ones who fired shots, police said.

KCTV5 News spoke to a security guard who was at the nightclub, he says the gunman got into a fight with a few guys and was denied entry. That was when the gunman went to his car to get the gun he then used to shoot into the crowd.

“One second everyone was just sitting there trying to get into the club. I believe it was at capacity in there, honestly. Then next thing you know, boom, boom, boom. About five shots rang out. People start falling, scattering,” Larry Phillips, who lives near the nightclub, said.

Detectives ask anyone who was there at the time of the incident to contact the Homicide Unit at 816-234-5043 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.

Police also would like to see any possible cell phone videos that were taken at the club that night around the time of the shooting.

29-year-old Jahron Swift, a black criminal, shouldn’t have even possessed a firearm. But he did. And he shot 16 people, killing one. Gun control is nothing more than an effort by the elite to disarm white people across America, who are starting to notice the dispossession of whites via mass 3rd world immigration means the end of their rights.

Mr. Swift wasn’t legally allowed to own a gun, but he did anyway. And he shot 16 people with it, killing one.

Gun control was never about targeting black gangbangers who perform almost all of the acts of gun violence across not just Kansas City, or Missouri, or the United States; no, it’s about disarming law-abiding white Americans.

Previously on SBPDL: In 50% Black/40% White Richmond, Virginia, 95% of Known 2016 Homicide Suspects Were Black

Richmond, Virginia is a city where virtually all gun crime is committed by blacks. It’s a 48 percent black/41 percent white city, where statues dedicated to Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee on Monument Avenue are somehow compelling blacks to kill one another. Even the statue of black tennis legend Arthur Ashe can’t compel blacks to put down the guns and stop shooting one another.

In the Beyond Containment: Reevaluating What’s Important to Improve Public Safety in Richmond report published by the Richmond Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney in January of 2019, we learn the role blacks play in violent crime in the capital city.

The answer? Basically all of it:

Indeed, the numbers are alarming. Richmond’s population is approximately 48% African American20, yet according to Richmond’s Police Department, in the last three years, 88% of violent offenders and 77% of violent crime victims in our city have been Black. Even in gentrifying neighborhoods like Churchill North and Fulton, about 90% of victims of violent crime are still Black. Why are we seeing so much crime involving Black residents? Perhaps this phenomenon can be attributed to neighborhood demographics or correlations with poverty on trauma. Or perhaps we need to dig deeper. Does the history of slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation constitute a sort of cultural trauma internalized by our Black residents? If so, do we see this internalized trauma in some of the violence in the Black community? (p. 6)

Perhaps segregation existed to protect white people from black criminality? Perhaps this is why segregation persists in 2020 Richmond, VA? What if propensity to violent crime has nothing to do with poverty, neighborhood demographics or trauma, but genetics?

What if white people long ago understood this and enacted laws to protect their civilization and posterity from the same criminality plaguing Richmond today?

Again, these are just hypotheticals, but they deserve answers.

Instead, we’ll just see white people blamed for black criminality in Richmond, Virginia, the only tolerated response to blacks committing 88% of the violent crime in the state capital between 2016 and 2018.

Our civilization’s progress is held hostage by our inability to be honest about black criminality. In Richmond, Virginia, the truth of this statement is crystal clear.

As [primarily, no, overwhelmingly] white Virginia gun owners prepare to descend upon Richmond and declare their support for the 2nd Amendment in the face of tyranny (all possible because of demographic change courtesy of mass immigration), it’s important to remember who/whom in the Commonwealth is responsible for violent crime.

Gun crime in Richmond, Virginia Beach, and Norfolk is overwhelmingly committed by blacks. Were data actually published for fatal/nonfatal shootings in Richmond, we’d learn blacks are responsible for close to 96 percent of all fatal/nonfatal gun crime in the capital city of Virginia.

But this data is rarely published by police departments, because it would only confirm stereotypes about gun crime we all know to be true.

The statistics are right there, if you just know where to look. Virginia is an 62 percent white state. Its population is 19 percent black.

The 2018 Virginia Uniform Crime Report provides an interesting look at violent crime in the 62 percent white state:

  • There were 355 known homicide offenders in 2018, with 249 of those offenders being black.
  • This means 70 percent of known homicide offenders in the 19 percent black state of Virginia in 2018 were black.

Though blacks are just 19 percent of the population, they represented 70 percent of the arrests for homicide in the state of Virginia in 2018.

It should be noted Hispanics are lumped in with whites in the Virginia Uniform Crime Report.

Per capita…

Despite being…

This means blacks were 8 times more likely than whites to be arrested for homicide in Virginia in 2018.

If only the Richmond Police Department would release fatal/nonfatal shooting data by suspects race, we’d be able to find out who/whom is committing all the gun crime in the capital city of Virginia. Odds are it’s close to 98 percent fatal/nonfatal shootings being committed by blacks.

Previously on SBPDL: Memphis Commercial Appeal APOLOGIZES for RUNNING Truthful Headline About Massacre of Five White Cops in Dallas and Even Though He Had Non-White Friends and Colleagues, John Palmer “J.P.” Shelley Is Still Dead (Courtesy of Three Black Males)

If you want a glimpse of the future, where extreme white guilt is exacerbated with toxic levels of white privilege-rejecting white people, look no further than this insanity from 65 percent black Memphis.

A young white boy is attacked by a group of black kids over a $20 bill. A white Unitarian minister runs to the local media and describes the real crime as being “insensitive” Facebook posts from outraged neighbors noticing the racial angle of the assault on the young white child.

Calling these black attackers of their white child “thugs” and “criminals” is a far, far worse crime than the racial attack itself… [Memphis family hopes for perspective after attack, WREG.com, January 16, 2020]:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One Memphis family is sending a surprising message to a group of teenagers that attacked their son.

The family is dealing with a traumatic event, but they do not want stereotypes or preconceived notions to paint an unfair picture about the boys who attacked a member of their family.

A group of teens was spotted in a Cooper-Young neighborhood riding bikes Sunday afternoon. They can be seen in a video following a pair down an empty street.

Less than two hours later, their actions took a violent turn.

One of them asked 16-year-old Leif Love-Cloys for a dollar. He gave it to them.

But when he refused to hand over a $20 bill they saw in his wallet, the group attacked.

“That’s when they jumped him,” mother Rev. Edith Love said. “One of them held him from behind, while another one was punching him on the sides of his head.”

Though traumatic, the attack did not leave any permanent physical damage, but the family is hurting due to social media messages following the incident.

“I am highly offended by people saying that this was stereotypical black children acting violently,” Love said.

They’ve seen neighbors use terms like thugs and criminals to describe the boys involved. But more so than online comments, they’re concerned about the futures of the attackers.

“These boys, if they don’t alter the path that they’re going down, it’s not a good place for them to be,” Love said.

A report has been filed with Memphis Police, and while no arrests have been made, there’s optimism the suspects will be caught. Rather than a thirst for revenge or justice, the family has a simple wish once the boys are identified.

“I would like to talk to them,” Love said. “I would like to know what they were thinking; what made them think that was okay.”

It’s a pretty powerful reaction to have such perspective after one of your own family members has been attacked.

Anyone with information about the Cooper-Young incident should call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH.

White people in America are trained to never, ever take their own side in a racial fight. From cradle-to-grave, whites are indoctrinated to reject their identity and side with racial aggressors, even when this aggression is against not only members of their own race, but their own family.

Perhaps we truly are irredeemable.

The Queen City.

Charlotte, North Carolina.

A 45 percent white/35 percent black city (the rest of the racial breakdown largely Mexican illegal immigrants helping build new homes, high rise condos, strip malls and commercial real estate for white people escaping areas of the city overwhelmed by black crime).

2019 was a particularly violent year in the city, fueled by individual blacks collectively trying hard to live up to every negative stereotype surrounding Africans in America and violence. [A deadly year: 2019 murder rate was Charlotte’s worst in more than a decade, Charlotte Post, January 16, 2020]:

Charlotte just posted its highest murder rate in more than a decade, prompting city leaders to say the violence should be treated as a public health crisis.

The city’s rate — 11.6 homicides per 100,000 people — is the highest since 2005 and more than double the rate from just six years ago. That year, 2014, remains Charlotte’s lowest on record. The rate takes into account population growth and is one way to look at deadly violence in Charlotte over time.

This month, city leaders have raised concerns following the 88% increase in the number of homicides in 2019 — 107 — compared with 57 in 2018.

Although only 35% of the city’s population is black, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates, the majority — 80% — of 2019 homicide victims were black, according to the Observer’s analysis of data provided by CMPD. Of those killed, 80% were men.

Half of the victims, both men and women, were under 30 years old.

Arrests have not been made in around one-third of the 2019 murder cases. Of the 107 homicides, officers have closed about 78 cases.

Because investigations are ongoing, complete demographic information on people charged with murder is not available. Statistics from homicide cases from 2016 to 2018, however, indicate some trends, CMPD says.

90% of homicide suspects were male

85% were black

41% were between 18 and 24 years old, a segment which makes up just 10 percent of the population

Victims were usually killed by someone they knew. 10% of homicide victims were killed by a stranger

26% of suspects had been convicted of a previous felony and 41% had a past felony charge

The demographics of those killed and those arrested are similar to the national trend, UNC Charlotte’s Kuhns said. Poverty, unemployment rates and unstable housing contribute to higher crime rates, he said.

“It’s part of the nationwide pattern … There’s disproportionate victimization among minorities,” he said.

STOPPING THE ‘CYCLE’

City leaders believe the city can interrupt the violence.

According to CMPD, one-fourth of homicides from 2017 to 2019 were preceded by an argument and one-fifth were domestic violence between family members or romantic partners.

In the first meeting of the Charlotte City Council this year, members said the surge in homicides is a public health crisis and that youth diversion and community-based mediation programs could be part of the solution.

“It can’t just be about policing anymore,” Lyles said. “It’s just not possible. … We want to actually figure out how to make change sustainable.”

Reversing the “cycle of violence” is possible, Putney says, but results could take years.

“I think we’re doing fantastic work that will pay dividends five and ten years down the road,” he said.

Between 2016 and 2018, 85 percent of known homicide suspects were black in Charlotte. Considering the low clearance rate in the city, it’s not hard to speculate 92-95% of homicide suspects are black, in a city where they represent only 35 percent of the population.

And those numbers don’t factor in the deadly 2019, where individual black people collectively propelled the city of Charlotte to one of its most violent in decades.

Previously on SBPDL: Remembering When Blacks Complained Crime Crackdown “Project Exile” in Richmond, VA Was Effective Because It “Affected [Blacks] Almost Exclusively”

“Frodo: I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.” — Lord of the Rings

Gun crime in the state of Virginia is overwhelmingly committed by blacks. It’s a fact the National Rifle Association (NRA) is afraid to admit, and every conservative runs from admitting.

Race and gun crime (fatal and nonfatal shootings) for every city and state in the USA represents the key to unlocking the truth about gun control in America. But both conservatives and liberals fear this door opening, for racial truths would flow forward, immediately requiring justification for being locked away from public consumption for so long, because lives could have been saved were they promoted and instituted into public policy.

And now, as Democrats in Virginia (courtesy of demographic change fueled by legal immigration and monolithic black vote) seek to pass massive gun control, white Virginia rises.

And now, one of the whitest states in America is offering those heavily white counties in Virginia declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries the chance to secede and join West Virginia. [HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8, West Virginia Legislature, January 14, 2020]:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the question of admission, or, the rejection of such admission, of any county or independent city of the Commonwealth of Virginia desiring admission to the State of West Virginia, and a majority of whose qualified voters, voting on the question, have approved such measure, prior to August 1, 2020, shall be submitted to the voters of the State of West Virginia at the next general election to be held in the year 2020.

Such proposal shall be placed upon the general election ballot in the following form: “Shall the following county (or independent city) _____________________(name), currently a constituent part of the Commonwealth of Virginia, be admitted to the State of West Virginia as a constituent county of the State of West Virginia.”

Should the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity to do so, and such county or independent city desiring admission to the State of West Virginia, and a majority of whose qualified voters, voting on the question, not have approved such measure prior to August 1, 2020, but do approve such measure at a later date;

Then, this provision of this Act shall serve as an official request of the Legislature of West Virginia to the Governor of West Virginia to call a special session of this Legislature to provide for a special election to provide for the approval of the admission, or, the rejection of such admission, of such county or independent city; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Legislature directs that the Clerk of the House forward copies of this resolution to the Board of Supervisors of each county in the Commonwealth of Virginia who have voted to become sanctuary counties for firearms rights, and to the Council of each independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia who have voted to become sanctuary cities for firearms rights; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Legislature directs that the Clerk of the House forward copies of this resolution to the Clerk of the House of Delegates and Clerk of the Senate of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia and requests, in a spirit of peace and goodwill, that the General Assembly will allow this measure for the peaceful transfer of peoples and the restoration of harmony to the Virginias; and, further requests, in a continuance of such spirit, that any firearms legislation proposed by that body have an effective date far enough into the future so that this exchange of peoples and territory could be accomplished before the effective date of such legislation.

This means nothing right now, but everything at the sametime.

West Virginia is one of America’s whitest states, and those counties across Virginia declaring themselves 2nd Amendment sanctuaries are overwhelmingly whites, untouched by refugee resettlement and mass immigration that has turned Northern Virginia into a Democrat stronghold.

It’s implicit right now. But it can easily become explicit.

White Virginia is rising.

The nation is watching what’s happening in Richmond, Va (where virtually every fatal/nonfatal shooting is committed by a black person), a glorious city dominated by alien politicians bent on disarming white Virginians.

He had no ‘white privilege’.

He was a septuagenarian, a man of modest means, living in Davenport, Iowa.

His name is Bob Long. He was a prolific author of books dealing with chess.

He was a white man. You’ll never hear his name, unless you read one of his many books on chess, or live in Davenport, Iowa and learn about how he was strangled to death in a botched car robbery.

Mind you, his murderer was a black teenager. [UPDATE: Davenport murder suspect charged with assaulting, robbing Rock Island County man in October 2019, KWQC.com, January 9, 2020]:

According to Rock Island County Court documents, Charlie Gary III, 19, of Davenport is facing battery, theft, and robbery charges stemming from a case in October.

This is in addition to the homicide case where a 74-year-old man was strangled to death and found dead Tuesday evening in Davenport.

According to the criminal complaint, on October 27, 2019, Gary assaulted a 63-year-old man of Rock Island, striking him in the head with a TV and a lamp. The complaint also shows Gary reportedly stole the man’s vehicle and a 55′ flat-screen television.

Meanwhile, Davenport police tell TV6 there is no information that would indicate a cause for concern for community safety after the Davenport victim, Robert Long, 74, was killed.

Police say while the investigation is ongoing at this time, preliminary information shows the victim knew 19-year-old Charlie Gary III. Police say that information also shows they believe this was not a random incident.

Police say on Tuesday, just before 5:45 p.m., they were called to the 1500 block of LeClaire Street in reference to an unresponsive person. That man, 74-year-old Robert Long, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Gary III, of Davenport, admitted to police that he went into the man’s home forcibly with the intent to steal the man’s car. Police say Gary III strangled Long, killing him and then stole property and his car and left the scene. Police say they later located Gary in Long’s vehicle when he was arrested.

Gary III has been charged with 1st-degree murder, 1st-degree robbery and 1st-degree burglary in reference to the incident. He’s currently being held at the Scott County Jail.

Gary III made his first appearance in Scott County Thursday morning via video arraignment.

The judge ordered Gary III to be held without bond and they set a preliminary hearing for January 17. The judge also informed Gary III that he was wanted out of Rock Island County on charges of robbery, theft and aggravated battery.

The judge did not take any action on the extradition matter and said the bond in the Illinois case is $100,000.

Outside of an incredibly niche community of chess enthusiasts, who will even remember the life of Bob Long, a white man strangled to death in his home by a black career criminal who had spent less than a score on earth?

Check-mate, bigot.

Rest in peace, Bob.

You weren’t just a pawn in the game of life, but a white man whose murder (and racial circumstances surrounding it) deserves a wider audience.

Previously on SBPDL: San Francisco Chronicle Covers Up Black Violent Crime Epidemic in Six Percent Black City By… Blaming Whites for Low Clearance Rate in Black Homicides

“What I’m saying is that man had rights!”

Well I’m all broken up about that man’s rights.

Dirty Harry

The new District Attorney of San Francisco has declared war on the criminal justice system. Why? All because the concept of law and order is, in his eyes, deemed to perpetuate “structural inequalities and white supremacy.”

Translation: too many people of color in jail and an insufficient amount of whites behind bars.

More to the point, don’t all white people know they are automatically in a gang even if they don’t know the secret handshakes? That’s the genius of the concept of white privilege, where the only gang color necessary for identification is white skin. [SF DA-elect Chesa Boudin sets new course in gang cases, citing charges ‘infused with racism’, San Francisco Chronicle, December 15, 2019]:

One of Chesa Boudin’s first planned policy changes when he takes over as San Francisco’s district attorney next month seeks to answer a question that has long ignited debates in the city: Should people accused of crimes face harsher punishments if their actions allegedly benefited a street gang?

The former public defender, who takes office Jan. 8, promises to put an end to filing what are known as gang enhancements against defendants — charges that can add years to felony sentences. Gang enhancements have drawn increased opposition in California, driven by statistics showing that they are disproportionately applied to people of color in poor neighborhoods.

Many law enforcement leaders say the charges are an important tool that allows them to hold gang members accountable for the fear they create in communities when they protect turf, intimidate witnesses, recruit new associates and commit violent crimes. But critics say gang enhancements yield arbitrary and excessive sentences, sending black and brown people to jail and prison at higher rates than white people who commit the same crimes, like assault or robbery.

State prison records show that of 11,484 inmates who were serving sentences with a gang enhancement as of Aug. 31, 68% were Hispanic and 24% were black. Just 3% were white.

“I want to focus on holding people accountable for what they’ve done — not who they are,” Boudin told The Chronicle. “People are seeing their families impacted by overzealous uses of these gang allegations.”

Boudin said gang enhancements are “infused with racism.” The punishments, he said, increase tensions between minority communities and law enforcement, ultimately making the city less safe. “There are violent crimes that are going unsolved,” he said, “and we need cooperation from these communities where these crimes are being committed.”

Proponents of gang enhancements, however, said the charges have been a valuable tool in protecting residents of neighborhoods plagued by organized criminals. They argue that going after gangs and the power they wield have prompted steep declines in homicides in San Francisco and around the state over the past decade.

 

Victims of gang crimes, proponents said, are also disproportionately people of color.

“Getting rid of the gang enhancement assumes that there’s no gang problem,” said Eric Siddall, a Los Angeles County gang prosecutor and vice president of the Association of Los Angeles Deputy District Attorneys. “The law was created for a very specific purpose with a very specific target and for very specific violence.”

To be convicted of a gang enhancement, a defendant must participate in a “criminal street gang” while knowing its members have committed “a pattern of criminal gang activity,” and while promoting or assisting in that activity. The sentencing enhancement can add two, three or four years to an underlying felony. If the felony is defined as serious or violent, the defendant can face an additional five or 10 years, respectively.

Boudin’s planned policy change is the latest flash point over whether San Francisco gang crackdowns are effective and equitable.

More than a decade ago, the city began obtaining civil court injunctions against gangs that barred alleged members from engaging in certain activities in neighborhood “safety zones,” under threat of arrest. Those named in the injunctions could not associate with each other in public, wear certain colors or seek to recruit new members, for example.

City Attorney Dennis Herrera, who filed those lawsuits, said they worked to cut crime. But opponents said the injunctions created a new set of potential crimes for a specific group of people, all of whom were African American or Latino. The city recently scaled back the program after criticism that it violated the defendants’ civil rights.

The law allowing gang enhancements came decades earlier. California’s Street Terrorism Enforcement and Prevention Act of 1988, known as the STEP Act, was designed to go after street gangs during an era of high violent crime in California.

At its zenith, California had more than 4,000 homicides in 1993. That number has steadily fallen, and just over 1,700 killings occurred last year, according to the state Department of Justice. Experts debate the reason for the drop, but many credit interventions by police and anti-violence groups in stemming retribution killings between gangs.

George Gascón, who was considered to be one of the country’s most progressive top prosecutors when he stepped down in October as San Francisco’s district attorney, charged gang enhancements. He did so, however, “only in the most serious instances,” said Max Szabo, his former spokesman.

Gascón, now running for district attorney in Los Angeles County, appears to have changed his position. At a debate Wednesday night at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles, he said he would stop charging gang enhancements and support statewide efforts to repeal the law.

But even as Gascón spoke, a gang enhancement case that his administration pursued before he left office was in trial in San Francisco Superior Court.

The murder trial opened last month, and it may not be finished when Boudin replaces interim District Attorney Suzy Loftus. Closing arguments begin Monday.

The case involves the March 2017 killing of a 44-year-old father who was celebrating his birthday with his adult son in the Mission District. Defendants Jose Mejia-Carrillo, 24, and Alexis Cruz-Zepeda, 25, are accused of being members of the 20th Street clique of the Mara Salvatrucha street gang, known as MS-13.

Family members of the victim, George Martinez, watched from the courtroom gallery last month as prosecutors played video of the deadly ambush. The district attorney’s office said the defendants accused Martinez of being a member of the Norteños, a rival gang of MS-13, before Mejia-Carrillo shot him in the back and finished him off with a point-blank shot to the head outside the Beauty Bar at 19th and Mission streets.

Prosecutors said Cruz-Zepeda distracted Martinez while Mejia-Carrillo came from behind and pulled the trigger. Mejia-Carrillo faces one count of murder, along with a gang enhancement, and a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Cruz-Zepeda was charged with a single count of participating in a gang conspiracy, a charge that refers to the gang enhancement statute’s provisions that a defendant promoted or assisted a gang.

If convicted, he faces up to 25 years to life in prison. Mejia-Carrillo faces a maximum of 25 years to life, plus 25 years for the gun charge and an additional 10 years for the gang enhancement. The defendants have pleaded not guilty.

Deputy Public Defender Steve Olmo, Mejia-Carrillo’s attorney, said authorities arrested the wrong person. The video doesn’t show the killer’s face, he said, adding that DNA from three people was found on the gun, which police found in a nearby trash can.

George Borges, the attorney for Cruz-Zepeda, said his client was simply standing on the sidewalk that night, and that Martinez asked him for a cigarette before he was shot.

Cruz-Zepeda has gotten several tattoos while in San Francisco Jail, including “MS-13” on his hand and devil horns that are associated with the gang on his biceps, prosecutors said.

“These guys are remorseless,” said Sasha Martinez, George Martinez’s ex-wife, who remained close with him. “They were planning on killing people and are earning their extra tattoos. This is what they think is OK.”

If the men are convicted, their sentencing may not happen until after Boudin takes office. Martinez’s family is worried the punishment may become more lenient.

“It’s horrible that they would take away gang enhancements,” Sasha Martinez said. “These guys are running around on the streets and they’re killing innocent people who are just trying to live normal lives.”

Boudin said he couldn’t comment on cases that are in trial. But he said MS-13 “is a real issue in the United States and California and San Francisco.” Boudin said the policy shift would not significantly affect murder prosecutions.

“In a case where there’s a homicide, those kind of cases, I’ve said I’m committed to prosecuting,” he said. “And in any homicide case, the defendant is facing life without parole.”

Joshua Mason, a frequent expert witness in Bay Area gang cases, said gang enhancements have raised the biggest questions about racial disparities in more ordinary cases.

“It’s not the insane cases that gang enhancements are applied to that are a problem, it’s the lesser ones,” Mason said. “It’s the kid who gets in a fight at a bus stop and gets labeled a gang member. For him the consequence is going to be extreme.”

The gang label is rarely applied to white defendants, said Mason, 42, who spent his 20s in state prison and was labeled a gang member after pleading guilty to an attempted murder charge. He was paroled in 2005, got involved in community outreach and enrolled at UC Berkeley.

Since then, he’s been retained as an expert witness in more than 100 cases — including at least one of Boudin’s cases at the public defender’s office.

Being a gang member “is a racially applied label,” Mason said. “There’s no consistent application of that term, except that it’s to lower-income black and brown folks. That’s about the only consistent thread.”

Siddall, the Los Angeles prosecutor, pushed back on the allegation that gang enhancements are racially unjust, saying, “It just happens to be that most gangs are Hispanic or black.” Most victims of gang crimes, he said, “are minorities from socially vulnerable communities.”

“District attorneys are charged with defending people who were vulnerable on the street and giving them justice in the courtroom,” he said. “Unilaterally doing away with the gang enhancement is not fair to those people who have to deal with gangs on a daily basis.”

The main takeaway from this piece was this paragraph: “State prison records show that of 11,484 inmates who were serving sentences with a gang enhancement as of Aug. 31, 68% were Hispanic and 24% were black. Just 3% were white.”

District Attorney Boudin considers all whites part of a gang, the nefarious majority gang, a group of insidious caucasians demonizing saintly people of color merely by existing.

So any laws on the books existing to cripple the advancement of “people of color” (particularly criminal “people of color”) must be removed immediately.

All eyes should be on California in 2020, where criminal justice reform policies are being implemented at frightening pace, theoretical concepts preached in academia vanquishing law and order and promoted by those prepared to fight white privilege with woke policies geared to advance the lives of criminals of color!

Previously on SBPDL — His Name Is Sean Schellenger: Philadelphia NAACP Trying to Downplay the Murder of White Former Penn State Quarterback by Black Male

Sean Schellenger was a white man, who played quarterback at Penn State. He lived in Philadelphia, a 41 percent black city. He was murdered in 2018 by a black male.

This black male was acquitted of the charge of murder, and will only face two years of probation for murdering Schellenger (of course, the probation is for tampering with evidence, since he was cleared of manslaughter).

In fact, 22-year-old Michael White is a celebrity to the black community of Philadelphia. One black journalist wrote about how she hugged him when she spotted Michael White walking on the streets of city… [Michael White’s lawyer: ‘When I saw him, I saw my son, wide-eyed and like a deer in headlights’, Philadelphia Inquirer, October 22, 2019]:

It had been seven years since Keir Bradford-Grey, who heads the Defender Association of Philadelphia, had stood before a jury and litigated a case.

But there she was representing Michael White, 22, who had been charged with fatally stabbing real estate developer Sean Schellenger during a scuffle near Rittenhouse Square last year.

And this wasn’t just any old manslaughter case but one that had attracted national attention because it symbolized long-standing tensions over race and class.

As the mother of a black boy, the 45-year-old chief defender brought a unique perspective.

So she went to attorneys Jonathan Strange and Dan Stevenson, who initially headed up White’s defense, and “they were gracious enough to allow me to be part of the team.”

“When I saw him, I saw my son, wide-eyed and like a deer in headlights. [He was] not a malicious kid but someone who could get into an unfortunate situation. That’s what I saw when I saw Mike,” she told me Monday during an interview at the Defender Association office, at 1441 Sansom St. “I didn’t see a troublemaker. I just couldn’t see that in his face, let alone when he talked to me.”

Bradford-Grey is sensitive to how America perceives black males as threatening and criminal. She didn’t want White’s case to go the way of the five falsely accused boys portrayed in Ava DuVernay’s 2019 docudrama When They See Us .

She also didn’t like the narrative that she kept seeing in the media about White being an instigator because he involved himself in an exchange between Schellenger, who was white, and a motorist blocking traffic at 17th and Chancellor Streets.

It annoyed her how reporters described White — who testified that he was on a break from college at the time of the stabbing — as a food deliveryman, because it “drives a certain perspective.”

“He was just a private kid who didn’t know who to trust,” Bradford-Grey said of White, who had been accepted to eight historically black colleges. “He’s very expressive in his poetry, but it was hard for him to talk about himself.”

Bradford-Grey argued in court that White, who pulled out a knife during his encounter with Schellenger, had acted in self-defense. “It was never his intent to kill him,” she told me.

Jurors deliberated for eight hours over two days.

“I kept saying: ‘Please let them see what we see. I hope we did a good enough job. I hope we brought to light what we needed to,’ ” she said. “And I hoped that they looked at him when he testified and saw who this young man was and who he wasn’t and who he was being portrayed as.”

On Thursday, White was acquitted of all charges except tampering with evidence. His sentencing is scheduled for December.

Shortly after the verdict, I spotted him walking along Market Street. I ran up and all but grabbed him after he told me the verdict. A friend who was with me gave him a bear hug.

We were sad about Schellenger’s death, but excited that White had been acquitted and that he had gotten a second chance at life.

As for Bradford-Grey, she felt like celebrating but went home and slept. I’ll bet it was her best sleep ever.

In a city where black elected officials push to ban bullet proof glass at convenience stores because it represents an “indignity” to blacks, what type of justice did the family of a white man murdered by a black man expect to get?

His name is Sean Schellenger. His life mattered too, but we all know what being white in Philly means, right?

Rest in peace, Sean.

Previously on SBPDL: Non-White Democrats in Virginia Seek to Outlaw White Flight and Creation of White Suburbs

It’s time to admit the reality of life in 2020 America: Democrats/liberals view non-whites as weapons to destroy social capital in homogenous white communities. Weaponizing diversity is the ultimate way to eliminate white privilege, right [Maryland Lawmaker Seeks to Force Low-Income Housing into Suburban Neighborhoods, American Greatness, January 9, 2020]:

A Maryland lawmaker is pushing a bill that would deliberately target more “affluent” suburban neighborhoods and force more low-income, high-density housing into those areas in the name of equality, according to The Daily Caller .

House Delegate Vaughn Stewart (D-Md.) outlined his plans for a “Homes for All” law aimed at “legalizing the construction of modest homes in neighborhoods close to affluent schools, reliable transit, and good jobs.” Vaughn further claimed, without evidence, that “local governments have weaponized zoning codes to block people of color and the working class from high-opportunity neighborhoods.”

This plan operates on the unconfirmed, and most likely false, premise that it is the neighborhood or location that leads to success, instead of other key factors such as family stability. CityLab staff writer Tanvi Misra further expanded on this, saying that the success of these neighborhoods is less about the location and more about the fact that “the kids who grow up there are very likely to have a father figure.”

This attempt in Maryland is the latest in a series of efforts by Democratic lawmakers to impose low-income housing on affluent neighborhoods, as previously reported. Some have even gone so far as to call such neighborhoods “racist” and not environmentally-friendly.

In a society governed by extreme egalitarianism, freedom of association is but a pipe-dream. Our elite, and those elected to govern and dictate our lives, utilize diversity and multiculturalism (non-white legal immigration/refugees) as a weapon to bludgeon whats left of the Historic America Nation.

It doesn’t matter the state, but the same anti-white animus drives the motivations of elected Democrats to try and bludgeon white conservatives with the very diversity they flee via seeking refuge in the suburbs of formerly thriving (now heavily non-white) urban areas.

The restoration of restrictive covenants would bring back sanity to the USA overnight (which is why the NAACP spent 30+ years waging legal war on them, culminating in Shelley vs. Kraemer decision in 1948), but this would require individual white people to admit they have collective interests worth fighting for and defending. We once did this, in a nation long forgotten: it was called the United States of America.

Previously on SBPDL: In Face of Democrat Party Tyranny, 90% of Virginia Counties Become 2nd Amendment/Gun ‘Sanctuaries’; These Counties Are Overwhelmingly White!

The two charts below are all that should matter when considering firearm violence in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and what should happen with gun control when the new state legislature convenes (with Democrats poised to pass gun control largely targeting placid white gun owners).

The question our elected officials should be asking is two-fold: why do white males commit the overwhelming bulk of suicides with firearms in Virginia and why do black males commit the overwhelming bulk of homicides/nonfatal shootings with firearms in Virginia?

From the Virginia Department of Health “Gun Violence in Virginia” report measuring gun violence from 2014-2018, we learn:

Key Points on Gun-Related Death in Virginia

• Rates of gun-related death in Virginia (all manners) are very similar to national rates of gun-related death

• Handguns were involved in nearly 80% of homicides and nearly 80% of suicides

• Rates of gun-related suicide among men increase with age

• White men and Native American men had the highest rates of gun-related suicide

• Black males and males age 20-24 years of age had the highest rates of gun-related homicide

Again: our elected officials should be trying to ascertain why white males are primarily using firearms to commit suicide and why black males are using firearms to murder/non-fatally shoot other black males in Virginia.

Of course, the only thing Democrats are interested in doing is making it illegal for law-abiding white males to own guns in Virginia, though the primary activity these white gun owners do with their firearms is use them for suicide.

Meanwhile, the data clearly shows black males with firearms represent the clear and present danger (the data showing, as stated, white males using their firearms primarily for suicide) in Virginia.

Is it nature or nurture (the increasing anti-white system acting as a vise on all aspects of life) causing white males to use their firearms for suicide?

And is it nature or nurture compelling blacks in Virginia to use firearms to commit the overwhelming amount of fatal/non-fatal shootings in the state?

These are questions we should be asking when it comes to firearms and gun ownership, but that will remain unasked.

Out of 318,000 people,St. Louis is 49.2 percent black 43.9 percent white (as of 2010 US Census).

Our good friends at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department not only put out an annual report on crime broken down by race, but a weekly analysis of the yearly crime rate.

Also, conveniently, the SLMPD breaks out violent crime by the race of suspects.

For 2019, there were 194 homicides in the city, with 175 of the victims being black (90%).

Suspects are known in only 42 percent of the homicides, with 75 of the suspects being black and 7 being white (there were 15 white victims of homicide in St. Louis in 2019).

Thus, in 2019 St. Louis, black suspects represent 91 percent of known suspects.

This means blacks are 9.28 times more likely than whites to be arrested for homicide in 2019 St. Louis. And remember: only suspects are known in only 42 percent of the cases… odds the 58 percent of the remaining cases have a black suspect? Pretty high.

There’s a reason it’s called Bell Curve City

To the victor, goes the spoils.

Courtesy of demographic change (mass non-white legal immigration/refugee resettlement) and the monolithic black vote, Democrats are poised to take control of the every level of the Virginia state government. There is no time for pragmatic change once the white majority/conservatives have been dispossessed, for in the eyes of the Left, it is time to completely embarrass your vanquished opponent.

And now, Democrats, fresh off their electoral victory in November of 2019 (all courtesy of demographic change and the usurpation of white conservatives) feel emboldened to celebrate and spike the proverbial football with impunity. [Northam backs marijuana decriminalization, raising felony larceny threshold to $1,000, Richmond.com, January 4, 2019]:

Gov. Ralph Northam said Friday that he would throw his weight behind the decriminalization of marijuana in Virginia this year but said he wants to study full legalization before going further.

Northam announced legislation Friday that would make possession of small amounts of marijuana a civil offense carrying a $50 penalty, instead of a criminal misdemeanor.

The proposal is part of a broader “criminal justice reform agenda” that includes changes to the state’s parole system, a higher threshold for theft to be considered a felony, and an increase to the age at which a young offender can be tried as an adult from 14 to 16.

Seeking to further a key 2019 win by his administration, Northam proposes to permanently eliminate the automatic suspension of driver’s licenses for unpaid fines, fees and court costs. Lawmakers had backed the reinstatement of licenses for 627,000 Virginians last year; Northam is proposing to end the practice permanently.

“All Virginians deserve access to a fair and equitable criminal justice system,” Northam said Friday during an event at OAR Richmond, a nonprofit that helps rehabilitate people formerly incarcerated. “This is a bold step towards a more just and inclusive commonwealth.”

Easing the legal consequences for marijuana possession has for years been a goal of Democrats, who have been blocked by some Republicans in a formerly GOP-controlled legislature.

Northam and other Democrats have argued that enforcement is expensive as possession of the drug becomes widespread. They also say it disproportionately jails African Americans.

The measure might see some GOP support. Sen. Siobhan Dunnavant, R-Henrico, supports decriminalization and has expressed support for the use of medical cannabis.

Northam is proposing to do away with criminal prosecution for people arrested with up to a half-ounce of marijuana or about 14 grams. An average joint contains a third to a half of a gram, according to academic and federal estimates.

Right now, possession of that amount could result in a $500 fine and 30 days in jail. A second arrest could result in a $2,500 fine, driver’s license suspension and up to a year in jail.

Northam is also backing legislation that would expunge the records of individuals who have been convicted for possessing up to a half-ounce of marijuana.

He also wants to end the suspension of driver’s licenses for drug crimes, and for driving off without paying for gas at a gas station.

If the marijuana measures are passed, Virginia would join 26 other states that have passed decriminalization measures or eliminated the possibility of jail time for possession of small amounts, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Of those 26, 11 have fully legalized possession of small amounts of marijuana.

On Friday, Northam stopped short of supporting legalization. During a gaggle with reporters, Northam pointed to his career as a pediatrician and said he has concerns about encouraging drug use among young people.

Northam added that he wants to understand how other states are grappling with and implementing legalization, and that he is backing legislation that would call for a formal review of the issue. He said that if a piece of legislation to legalize marijuana arrived at his desk for signature, he would consider it.

Advocates may find a supporter in Attorney General Mark Herring, who wrote in a recent opinion column that Virginia should “start moving toward legal and regulated adult use.” No bills have been filed to fully legalize the drug for recreational use.

Bill Farrar of the ACLU of Virginia said Friday that the state should go further, and “move past incremental discussions about decriminalization.”

“Leaving a civil fine in place will continue to allow police to use a purported odor to disproportionately stop people of color for searches or to charge them with other crimes,” he said in a statement. “There is no reason to wait any longer to simply strike simple possession from the criminal code.”

Northam on Friday also said he will support legislation to make it more difficult for theft to be classified as a felony. In 2018, lawmakers raised the threshold from $200 to $500, the first time it had been raised since 1980. Northam is proposing to double it to $1,000.

It’s a strategy states are moving toward as criminal justice reform advocates note that thresholds set in the 1980s and before have not been adjusted for inflation. Felony convictions, they argue, can hinder offenders from obtaining work, and accessing public housing and welfare.

A 2017 study from The Pew Charitable Trusts found that raising the threshold did not affect downward trends in property crime and theft rates in the 30 states that made the change between 2000 and 2012.

Northam’s criminal reform package also includes bills that would expand the number of people potentially eligible for parole. Virginia abolished parole in 1995, but people sentenced before that are still eligible.

Northam said he would support legislation that would allow people sentenced by jury between 1995 and 2000 to also be eligible, given a court ruling that found jurors were not told parole had been abolished.

Northam also wants people with terminal illnesses and who are permanently disabled to be eligible for parole.

Farrar, of the ACLU, said the governor’s package “touches upon many important aspects of badly needed” reforms, but “falls far short of what is needed.”

Farrar praised the move to permanently end the license suspensions, but said an increase in the theft felony threshold up to $1,500 would be more appropriate. He also said he questioned how the terminally ill and disabled might be cared for if released on parole.

With demographic change comes consequences. After all, democracy is a racial headcount. As you run out of white conservatives, those who outvote you have no interest in preserving your past (remove all Confederate statues) or ensuring you have a future.

Hence the push for massive gun control in a state where gun crime is almost exclusively black… to disarm law-abiding whites.

If your ideas weren’t able to win over the existing electorate, replace them via mass legal immigration/refugee resettlement…

We call St. Louis “Bell Curve City” (hint: pick up a copy or two of Bell Curve City: St. Louis, Ferguson, and the Unmentionable Racial Realities That Shape Them). Why? Because so many racial truths are found in the 49 percent black/43 percent white city.

What do we mean? Well, 89 percent of homicide suspects in 2018 St. Louis were black, showcasing the color of the crime in the city.

And to start off 2020, we find out yet another of the near record setting homicides in 2019 St. Louis was black-on-white.

His name is Mark Schlemmer, a white male and father of two beautiful teenagers. He went out one Halloween night for some fun, and ended up just another victim of black homicide in Bell Curve City.

Shot. [‘I think my brain is still trying to process’ |Daughter coming to terms with loss of father shot on Wash Ave.: “I just want whoever killed my father to be taken away for a long time. I want justice for him,” said Sierra Schlemmer., KSDK.com, November 5, 2019]:

Sierra Schlemmer says her father was a happy go lucky kind of guy who loved to take pictures and was inseparable from her and her sister.

“We always took pictures. He was just a very caring person. He was a good, goof-ball kind of guy who was always the life of the party,” said Sierra.

Schlemmer says she last saw her father on October 26th when she celebrated her 18th birthday.

“He gave me a birthday present and everything. I hugged him and I told him that I loved him,” said Sierra.

She couldn’t believe what happened to her dad six days later.

Witnesses told police Mark Schlemmer first left a Halloween party at City Museum.

A short time later, Sierra said her dad, his friend and a young woman left an after-party at Europe nightclub near 15th and Washington Avenue, hopped in his friend’s car and were about to leave when a guy pulled up in a white Malibu with a gun.

Chaser. [Man charged in killing outside St. Louis nightclub is in custody in Georgia, St. Louis Post Dispatch, January 4, 2020]:

Prosecutors have charged a person in the November shooting death of a Collinsville man outside a nightclub in downtown St. Louis.

Leron Harris, 25, of the 1000 block of Andrews Drive in East St. Louis, faces charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the Nov. 1 killing of Mark Schlemmer. Harris was charged Dec. 23 in St. Louis Circuit Court and was in custody Friday in Georgia in an unrelated case.

Schlemmer, 38, was fatally shot across the street from Europe, a nightclub off Washington Avenue, about 2:15 a.m. Police said he was wearing a Halloween costume and leaving a party with friends when he was shot.

Two witnesses told police Schlemmer had stepped into the front passenger seat of a car that was about to drive off when Harris pulled up in a vehicle, tried to block the car Schlemmer was in, and fired a shot intended for someone else in the vehicle.

The bullet instead hit Schlemmer in the head, killing him. After the gunman fired the fatal shot, police said, he backed his vehicle down 15th Street and hit at least two parked cars. The gunman then ran off, leaving the damaged vehicle behind.

Police said Harris and the woman he tried to shoot had a previous relationship and he had been texting her throughout the evening.

After the shooting, Harris texted the woman and told her to throw away her phone and to report that someone had stolen the car she, Schlemmer and another person were in, according to the charges.

A witness told police the shooter wore a distinctive mask and identified the mask in a photo posted to Harris’ Instagram page, charges said.

Harris was taken into custody Nov. 15 in Marietta, Georgia, after a high-speed chase. He was in custody there Friday, but a booking photo was not available.

Harris admitted fleeing the St. Louis area because he was suspected of a homicide, according to court documents. Court records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.

Schlemmer was a painter with two teenage daughters. His girlfriend told the Post-Dispatch in November that he dressed up like a burglar for Halloween and attended a party at the City Museum, then later went to the Europe club at 710 North 15th Street.

In addition to pending charges in Georgia for illegal gun possession, fleeing police and drug possession, Harris also has 2013 convictions in Illinois for drug possession and robbery, and a 2016 conviction for unlawful gun possession, according to court records.
Rest in peace, Mark Schlemmer. May your family find peace in knowing your killer has been found.

Previously on SBPDL: In Overwhelmingly White Buckhead Community of Atlanta, Citizens Irate Black-Run City Stopped Police from Responding to Shoplifting/Property Crimes

Atlanta is the Black Mecca. It’s a majority black city, though gentrification is civilizing once drug infested communities quickly, where criminality is almost exclusively a black vocation and avocation.

In 2018 Atlanta, the Atlanta Police Department’s Uniform Crime Report shows blacks were 10 times more likely than whites to be arrested for homicide (no one has broken down these numbers before save your friendly neighborhood realist at SBPDL).

And guess what? The police department will no longer chase suspects (who happen to almost always be black). [Atlanta police begins no-chase policy effective immediately, WSBTV.com, January 4, 2020]:

ATLANTA — Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields sent out a department-wide email notifying officers that the department will no longer chase suspects.

Shields cited the risk to the safety of the officers and the public for each chase, and “knowing that the judicial system is largely unresponsive to the actions of the defendants.”

This change comes after last month’s deadly crash during a chase that killed two men.

Channel 2′s Matt Johnson was at the news conference when Shield announced the changes.

“Please know that I realize this will not be a popular decision; and more disconcerting to me personally, is that this decision may drive crime up,” Shields said in a memo announcing the change. “I get it.”

While she noted that “an overwhelming number of crimes are committed where a vehicle is involved” and that significant arrests often follow zeroing in on a specific vehicle, other factors influenced the decision.

“Namely, the level of pursuit training received by officers who are engaging in the pursuits, the rate of occurrence of injury/death as a result of the pursuits and the likelihood of the judicial system according any level of accountability to the defendants as a result of the pursuit. At his point and time, the department is assuming an enormous risk to the safety of officers and the public for each pursuit, knowing that the judicial system is largely unresponsive to the actions of the defendants.”

APD’s previous pursuit policy, which went into effect Sept. 15, 2018, allowed up to three police vehicles to join in a vehicle chase. Under that policy, officers were authorized to pursue a vehicle in one of the following situations: the suspect has a deadly weapon, the officer believes the suspect poses an immediate threat of violence to officers or others; or when there is probable cause to believe the suspect has committed or threatened serious physical harm.

All police officers involved in a vehicle pursuit must utilize their siren, flashing blue lights and headlights, the previous policy states.

But the department’s policy has come under scrutiny, along with other law enforcement agencies, when others are harmed or killed by the pursuit.

On Dec. 4, two friends and neighbors, Mark Hampton and Jermanne Jackson, were running errands, according to their families. Hampton had to pick up medication for his disabled son.

The two were killed when their car was hit by an SUV speeding through the intersection of Campbellton Road and Lee Street, according to police. Hampton was 43; Jackson was 44.

Two 19-year-old’s in the SUV had allegedly carjacked someone hours earlier, according to police. Both Marguell Scott and Emmanuel Fambro were charged with murder.

It’s so senseless,” said Hampton’s mother, Deborah Hampton, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution days after his death. “It just seems like it’s a dream. A nightmare.”

Chris Rich, who has lived in Atlanta for about five years, was trying to make sense of the policy decision Friday afternoon.

“This is pretty drastic,” he said. “If I’m a criminal, it’s open season. It’s going to impact all the law-abiding citizens. It’s worrisome.”

He understands where Shields is coming from, though, and wishes the police department felt more support from other agencies. He knows several police officers and worries about morale.

“We’ve got these guys working hard, trying to make our streets safe, and then you’ve got this revolving door with these repeat offenders,” Rich said. “I just cannot understand why the mayor’s office is not putting more pressure on the DA’s office or the judicial system. There needs to be a unified front.”

Is crime the new black entitlement in America? In Atlanta, the city too busy to hate, perhaps police are now standing down to black criminality. In Buckhead, it’s already happening. Now, it’s policy for the entire city.

Law and and order is being retired to make life increasingly hospitable toward black criminality.

PK NOTE: Pick up a copy of K.M. Breakey’s new book Fearless Men, But Few. It’s the story of The Great Replacement in Ireland and those few true Irishman who fight back. A must-read!

We learned from Axios that 96% of all counties across the USA saw a decline in their share of the white population since 2010.

The Great Replacement is very real. Imagine what we’ll see by 2025… demography is destiny.

Well, now it turns out The Wall Street Journal admits by the 2020 US Presidential election, the true scope of The Great Replacement might be in focus. [Demographic Shift Poised to Test Trump’s 2020 Strategy: Base of white, working-class voters projected to decline and be replaced by Democratic-leaning groups, Wall Street Journal, January 3, 2020]:

“President Trump’s 2020 election strategy relies largely on the white, working-class base that he excited in 2016. But he faces a demographic challenge: The electorate has changed since he was last on the ballot in ways likely to benefit Democrats,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“Working-class, white voters are projected to decline by 2.3 percentage points nationally as a share of eligible voters, compared with the last election, because they are older and therefore dying at a faster rate than are Democratic groups. As those voters pass on, they are most likely to be replaced by those from minority groups or young, white voters with college degrees—groups that lean Democratic.”

“That means Mr. Trump will have to coax more votes from a shrinking base—or else find more votes in other parts of the electorate.”

The unparalleled-in-human-history racial change in America is happening so fast, right before our eyes, we sometimes fail to realize just how consequential The Great Replacement truly is and what it represents. And in just about nine months, we could see the supplanting of the Historic America Nation for good. The Wall Street Journal has spoken, a subtle warning to investors of what’s coming (and the non-white Democrat Party looking to raid 401(k)s and white people’s retirement funds to pay for their programs/initiatives).

Let’s just call it the white tax and be done with it.[City lawmakers want to impose gentrification tax, New York Post, December 26, 2019]:

Here’s one thing that unites local pols across the political divide — a gentrification tax.

A bipartisan group of city lawmakers is pushing Albany to approve tweaks to the state tax laws that would allow them to hit new homebuyers with tax bills based on the actual market prices of their properties.

The coalition of 13 Republican and Democratic city council members says that taxes would not go up for existing owners.

New York’s famously opaque property tax system offers big breaks to new homebuyers by taxing them at assessed values that are often millions of dollars less than the market price.

For instance, a buyer who snapped up a Clinton Hill brownstone for $3 million in 2017 only has to pay taxes on a sliver of that amount — $24,000, leaving the lucky owner with a tax bill of just $4,297 a year.

Meanwhile, the owner of a relatively modest half-million-dollar Bergen Beach bungalow pays nearly an identical amount, despite being worth just one-sixth the price on the market.

The current system amounts to a giant giveaway for gentrifiers, Staten Island Councilman Joe Borelli told The Post.

“People are just getting fed up with the loophole, and they’re demanding action,” the GOP politician added.

The bipartisan coalition also includes Park Slope Democrat Brad Lander and Bay Ridge Democrat Justin Brannan.

They’re backing a resolution that calls on state lawmakers to change the tax law to require new homebuyers to pay property taxes on the market rate instead of the heavily discounted assessed value.

The change would boost the Clinton Hill gentrifiers bill by $1,600 a year while keeping the Bergen Beach old timer’s costs the same.

“Borelli’s plan to reset the tax cap whenever a new owner purchases a property would bring a small drop of fairness to a system that is just completely screwed and totally unfair,” Brannan said.

Borelli sent the proposed resolution to City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and state Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie earlier this month with a letter asking for the change.

Reps for Heastie did not return calls.

Johnson’s spokeswoman, Jennifer Fermino, said, the speaker is awaiting the preliminary report from a property tax reform commission he convened with Mayor Bill de Blasio in 2018.

“The Advisory Commission is looking at Real Property Tax Law 1805 as part of its review of our broken system,” Fermino added. “Any recommendations for changes will be part of the commission’s preliminary report. The Speaker is looking forward to reviewing their recommendations when the report is ready.

There’s no deadline for the initial tax overhaul report, which has been reportedly near release since July.

A spokeswoman for de Blasio also punted on Borelli’s plan, referring to the overdue tax study.

“The property tax system is complex, and we appreciate Council Member Borelli’s interest in reforming the Real Property Tax Law,” said Marcy Miranda, press secretary for the city’s Department of Finance.

Communities filled with people of color sit on desirable real estate, whose primary impediment to appreciating property values is the paucity of whites. So of course an extra tax should be mandated and required for whites to pay if they dare encroach on property owned by people of color via the free market and exchange of ownership of property.

In the end, there is one primary rule dominating American life in 2020: there is always a white person to blame, and for this fault, they must be extra.

Hence, the proposed gentrification tax (white tax).

The Empire State today, all of America tomorrow.

First data point you need to know: white students represent just 23 percent of public school enrollment in the state of California.

Second data point you need to know: though black students make up just 5 percent of the public school enrollment in the state of California, they represent the majority of students suspended (even though the state banned suspensions based on “defiance and disruption” in 2014… to try and stop too many non-white students from being suspended).

Unfortunately, too many students of color are being suspended still in California for failing to abide by the rules governing proper behavior in public schools, so the concept of suspensions are being retired.

Permanently. [California public schools can’t suspend students for disobeying teachers, new law says, KRON4.com, December 26, 2019]:

SACRAMENTO (KRON) — New laws taking effect in 2020 will impact schools across California.

Starting next school year, it will be illegal for public schools in the state to suspend students in first through fifth grade for willfully defying teachers or administrators.

Then, from 2021 through 2025, it will be temporarily extended to kids in grades six through eight.

Supporters say suspensions for willful defiance are disproportionately used against students of color.

Another new law — a mandatory change to school start times.

The law is set to be phased in over the next three years. High schools can start no earlier than 8:30 a.m., and no sooner than 8 a.m. for middle schoolers.

The controversial measure could be costly, state legislative analysts have said some schools may end up spending millions to accommodate the adjustment.

Limiting and banning smartphone use is at the center of another law affecting schools in 2020.

School boards will have the power to ban devices with the exception of emergencies or other special situations, such as medical reasons.

Supporters say smart phone use is linked to lower student performance and interferes with the educational mission of schools.

The great Robert Heinlein once wrote, “punishment must be unusual or it serves no purposes.”

As we see in California, the concepts of morality, civility and duty are being abandoned, because those displaying anti-social behavior in public schools are predominately non-white… even though white students make up just 23 percent of public school enrollment in the state.

Remember the old saying? As California goes, so goes the nation

Repeat after me, “our new country is going to be great!”

Previously on SBPDL: A Letter by a White Baltimore Woman from 1917 vs. Spike Lee’s Rant Against Gentrification and 70% Black Baltimore vs. 77% White Portland, Oregon: Both Dominated By Elected Democrats, Why Did Baltimore Have 10x the Number of Homicides in 2018?

Once a world-class city, 70 percent black Baltimore is now a punchline. [Baltimore breaks city record for killings per capita in 2019, Associated Press, December 27, 2019]:

Baltimore broke its annual per capita homicide record after reaching 342 killings Friday.

With just over 600,000 residents, the city hit a historically high homicide rate of about 57 per 100,000 people after recent relentless gunfire saw eight people shot — three fatally — in one day and nine others — one fatally — another day.

The new rate eclipses that of 1993, when the city had a record 353 killings but was much more populous before years of population exodus.

By contrast, New York City, with more than 8 million residents, had 306 homicides through Dec. 15.

The total is up from 309 in 2018 and matches the 342 killings tallied in 2017 and 2015, the year when the city’s homicide rate suddenly spiked.

A statement from Baltimore police said officers were dispatched late Thursday night to a location on Pratt Street, where they found a man with gunshot wounds. A police spokesman said the man died from his wounds at a local hospital early Friday.

This is the fifth year in a row that Baltimore has reported more than 300 killings. Before 2015, that number had generally been on the decline, but it reversed after civil unrest followed the death in police custody of a young black man, Freddie Gray.

Reasons for the change vary and are subject to interpretation.

Many have accused police of taking a hands-off approach to crime-fighting since six of their own were charged in connection with Gray’s death. None of the officers was ultimately convicted.

Others have attributed it to the apparent free flow of illegal guns, the effects of a punishing opioid epidemic, social inequalities and a lack of decent jobs for many in disenfranchised neighborhoods. Some say political incompetence at City Hall also has contributed.

Last week, federal and local law enforcement officials unveiled another round of strategies to try to bring down violent crime. They include federal funding that can help pay for new police officers and a pilot program to fly three surveillance planes above the city during the months that historically have seen high rates of crime.

If you’ve read The City that Bleeds: Race, History, and the Death of Baltimore (and if you haven’t, get it here now!), you know the truth about Baltimore our elite have spent more than half a century trying to explain away as the fault of pernicious white people and their insidious redlining, systemic racism, and racial criminal justice system.

With a homicide rate of 57 per 100,000, 70 percent black Baltimore is one of the most dangerous city’s in the entire world.

What’s interesting is back in 1920, Baltimore was 85 percent white and had a population of 733,826 people. The overall percentage of the population has dropped 18 percent in 100 years, with whites now roughly 24 percent of the population.

The decline of whites in Baltimore would have you believe a war was lost, with the radical racial replacement in the city indicating a conquered people (of course, white people are still blamed for all the problems blacks create in the city, even though elected black officials/appointed black officials in public office control the city).

But here’s the kicker: back in 1921, when whites politically controlled the city of Baltimore and represented 85 percent of the population, there was a far different homicide rate: 11.3 per 100,000 people.

What might these numbers showcase? We’ll let you come to any conclusions…
