We all know that the best to way to reduce violence is to treat it harshly (with long prison sentences, for example) and that the best way to increase violence is to treat it leniently (with light sentences and/or media indifference, as in the case of illegal alien violence).
For instance Democrats are hoping in their “prison reform” agenda to put an end to life sentences. This comes after they got rid of the death penalty in many cases and states. And so the next logical step is to get rid of long prison terms.
Friends, don’t be fooled what this is really about: Slowly and incrementally liberals are working toward lessening and eliminating punishment for criminals.
They already have done so and it started in the 1960s (no surprise there). Millions of times we have heard stories about a criminal with a long record who served a short sentence or no sentence and was out on the streets and who committed yet another crime.
Here is another way that Democrats are allowing crime to fester at another level:
Over the last ten years we have seen increasing crime in many schools, particularly urban schools. Much of this is a product of an Obama-era rule sometimes called the Promise Program under which malicious ‘students of color’ are given lenient treatment for bad behavior. Breitbart News reported:
A Democrat state senator and a Teamsters president said the dramatic drop in school suspensions in New York City since the Obama-era policy urging more lenient forms of discipline for minority students has led to “chaos” and a lack of “accountability” for dangerous behavior.
New York state Sen. Leroy Comrie told CBS New York that schools in his Queens district are losing the confidence of parents.
“They’re taking their children to other schools even if they have to pay for private schools,” he said. “They don’t want to have to have their children in an environment where they’re assaulted and there’s no accountability.”
Comrie pointed to a new study from John Jay College’s Data Collaborative for Justice that found a stark 49 percent drop in school suspensions in New York City from academic year 2010-2011 to 2016-2017. During that time period, suspensions plummeted from 63,635 to 32,331.
According to the study:
Black students consistently had the highest suspension rates, followed by Hispanic, White, and Asian students in middle and high school. For instance, in 2016-17, the suspension rate for Black students in middle and high school was 2.8 times the rate for White students.
“They need to look at the in-house suspension program and change it,” Comrie said. “There has to be some kind of positive discipline that can happen… they need to be separated from the school population.”
Teamster President Gregory Floyd, who represents school safety officers, referred to what is happening in schools as “chaos.”
“There’s chaos in our schools and it’s going to get worse,” he said, according to CBS New York. “The children know they can get away with everything.”
Meanwhile Obama’s soft-on-school-crime plan did its dirty deed in Florida at the Parkland high school where 17 students and teachers died at the hands of murderer Nikolas Cruz on February 14, 2018.
Cruz was well-known as a whacko to students, teachers, administrators, local police and even FBI. But nothing was done since his last name is “Cruz” which is a ‘minority’ hispanic name. Parkland also is located in a very liberal ‘non-judgmental’ area called Broward County where no behavior is supposed to be scrutinized or judged.
We also know that the superintendent of the school district in Parkland came from Chicago where the Promise Program was first implemented. And he brought the Promise Program with him to Florida.
Immediately after the killings students said in interviews that they knew that Cruz – a former student who had been expelled from the school in the previous year – was going to do something like he did, that he was a known lunatic.
Here is the standard propaganda about how the Promise Program is supposed to work:
New York City Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza, however, continued the Obama-era talking points, claiming the drop in suspensions was beneficial to students who engage in unacceptable behavior so they can avoid incarceration.
“What we don’t want is to put students on a school to prison pipeline,” Carranza said. “The minute you put a student into the criminal justice system you’ve started him on a path. We’re educators, we’re about preventing students from having that kind of a track record.”
The goal, instead, according to Carranza, is “redirecting student behavior giving students different ways to not only behave but behave in a social environment.”
And thus bad students get better treatment but the overall increase in crime hurts the good kids. This is typical socialism; it is zero-sum game. One group gets better treatment as another group gets worse. Breitbart News continued:
However, in March 2018, U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member Peter Kirsanow told Breitbart News the Obama-era policy had led to a sense of fear in schools.
“Students (and teachers) have reported being fearful of going to school,” said Kirsanow, who also chairs the board of directors of the Center for New Black Leadership. “One school principal stated unequivocally that the people that are most harmed are the good students who want to learn but are harmed by the chaotic environment.”
Kirsanow said the literature on racial disparities in disciplinary rates often omits key data.
“Much of the literature that focuses on racial disparities in disciplinary rates recites statistics showing that black and Hispanic students are 3-4 times more likely to be suspended than white and Asian students,” he explained. “But the same literature often leaves out data showing that black and Hispanic students are far more likely than white and Asian students to commit the types of offenses resulting in suspension.”
This could be compared to a fake Democrat/media scam from the 1990s when the New Jersey state police were accused of racism for pulling over black motorists at much higher rates than white motorists.
And it was true, but the reason was covered up by the Fake News media – that blacks drive at high speed and drive recklessly at much higher rates than whites do and thus are more likely to be pulled over in the first place.
Trump Haters Going Down All Over the Place
It is sad and sick to watch these Trump haters assaulting conservatives and Trump supporters as happened recently at the University of California at Berkeley.
Fortunately the conservative student Hayden Williams is OK and the assailant has been caught and charged. After all the attack is on video. Hot Air reports:
The man identified by police as the person seen attacking a conservative recruiter on Berkeley’s campus has been charged with three felonies and one misdemeanor. Today he had his first court appearance where he pleaded not guilty to the charges. Video shot by KTVU’s Henry Lee shows Greenberg said nothing on the way into the hearing but his attorney did comment briefly on the way out.
“I realize that many people observing this case are interested in constitutional freedom,” the attorney said. She added, “I would remind that one important constitutional freedom is the presumption of innocence, due process of law, due process in a courtroom, not on social media or the internet.”
With the attack on video it will be extremely disturbing if Greenberg does not get a harsh sentence. But we should not necessarily count on that since the attack happened in a very liberal area and the Fake News media are manipulating the story fully (see below).
Now look at this story from The Daily Caller about the gay, black hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett who is a Trump hater and who claimed falsely that a group of white men in Make America Great Again hats had attacked him:
A grand jury indicted disgraced actor Jussie Smollett on 16 felony charges Thursday in Cook County Court.
Smollett was originally charged with filing a false police report after the Jan. 29 incident when he claimed two masked men attacked him while yelling racist and homophobic slurs.
The grand jury returned two different sets of charges, according to a report published by ABC7.
The first charges are related to what Smollett told officers about the attack that he allegedly fabricated. The second round of charges are related to the second interview Smollett had with police. Smollett could be facing probation or up to four years in prison for each individual charge.
Experts conclude that Smollett will most likely take a plea deal and spend no time in prison wrote ABC7.
Great. Another Trump hater goes down. But notice the last sentence showing a very subtle form of media bias, that Smollett will “most likely take a plea deal and spend no time in prison”.
Who says? This is the liberal ABC7 writer editorializing, i.e., the writer hopes that Smollett gets off as many legal “experts” (liberals) hope too.
If Smollett gets away without significant jail time it would be a huge travesty since he could have literally incited a violent race “war” and a “war” on Trump supporters if his lie had not been found out.
This hoax was a very big deal and the Fake News media are burying it as quickly as possible since it makes the leftist fake-hate-crimes industry look bad.
Meanwhile the media sided with Smollett every step of the way. After decades in which we all have been required to report that such an attack is an “alleged attack” until it is proven, virtually none of the Fake News media referred to it as an “alleged” attack even though there was no evidence whatsoever that it had happened and even though it sounded like a hoax from the start. CNN reported:
Smollett was attacked by two people who were “yelling out racial and homophobic slurs” and “poured an unknown chemical substance on the victim,” police said.
NBC Chicago reported:
An actor from the hit television show “Empire” was beaten overnight in what police are investigating as a “possible racially-charged assault and battery” in Chicago, authorities said.
Over and over we saw the same thing from media and celebrity reports and tweets. Before the hoax was exposed ABC’s Robin Roberts gave Smollett a softball interview in which Smollett lied about the attacks in ways that are totally obvious even to someone with just a smattering of knowledge about body language and facial expressions showing deception.
Meanwhile the same American media have spent decades covering up the massive crime wave perpetrated against white people by blacks.
At the same time some Fake News media skunks referred to the Greenberg attack on conservative Hayden Williams at Berkeley as an “alleged” assault even though it was clearly seen on video by millions of people on the internet. Newsweek reported:
University of California Police (UCPD) arrested a man for allegedly assaulting a conservative activist who was handing out flyers at UC-Berkeley last month. The attack, which was caught on camera, reinvigorated a lingering debate about free speech at the liberal college.
CBS News reported:
Police with the University of California at Berkeley are investigating an alleged assault of a conservative activist Tuesday, after the incident was captured on video. CBS San Francisco reports students recorded the confrontation on their cell phones, and the video soon when viral.
This proves once again how treacherous and dishonest the media are. The good thing is that two more Trump haters have been exposed and will be prosecuted, adding to a long list of criminals and crazies who are suffering for their irrational hatred in the Age of Trump.
Isn’t it wonderful to see the anti-Trumpers losing again and again?
