Black CT Politician Dennis Minor Finds Noose Hanging Near Office in Brodie Park


A noose was found near the office of black Connecticut politician Dennis Minor. The pink noose was reportedly left hanging from the men’s bathroom door in Berkshire Hall, which is on the grounds of Brodie Park, where Minor works as the town’s recreation director.

Dennis Minor told a local Fox affiliate that he was “speechless” about the matter, which he deemed a hate crime. He recently announced that he is running to become the town selectman of New Hartford and thinks that announcement may have angered people in the area.

‘It’s just strengthened my resolve, that’s all it did. If somebody did that to make me get out of the race that was probably the wrong thing to do because that’s certainly not going to happen,’ Dennis Minor told Fox.

Hate Crime: Jeana Terry and Partner Lisa Lange Beaten by Three Teenage Siblings in Cape Girardeau

SHAMEFUL:  Jeana Terry and her partner Lisa Lange were beaten by three teenage siblings in Cape Girardeau community, in what is being called a hate crime.

“They were kicking, stomping and beating the hell out of her,” [Mima B.] Poole said of the alleged attack on Terry, 41, by three siblings who live in a house across the street. Two girls, ages 16 and 13, and their 11-year-old brother are still in custody in the Mississippi County Regional Juvenile Detention Center, authorities say, charged with assault and burglary. Source

This is no different from attacking a black couple because of the color of their skin. No-one should feel threatened to live in peace in their community because of their sexual orientation, race or religious beliefs. This is reprehensible. Where are the parents for these thugs? Whatever happened to respect your elders?

MA Police Officer John Perreault Fired for Calling Red Sox Player Carl Crawford a ‘Monday’

MA Police Officer John Perreault Fired for Calling Red Sox Player Carl Crawford a ‘Monday’ (Daily Mail)

John Perreault, a Massachusetts police officer, was fired after shouting a racial slur, Monday, at Boston Red Sox black outfielder Carl Crawford. Perreault used the slur while Crawford was signing autographs before a game in New Hampshire when he was called a ‘Monday” by a heckler, John Perreault, in the stands. It should be noted that John Perreault, who was off-duty at the time, has a long history of being racially insensitive, Leominster Mayor Dean Mazzarella said, the Daily Mail reports.

The term ‘Monday’ can be used as a racist statement towards African-Americans and in some cases is tantamount to calling them a ‘n*****’, according to the Urban Dictionary. It comes from the common dislike for the first day of the working week and is often used in the hope the abused person will not be aware it is an insult.

[…]

Perreault’s attorney, Joseph Sandulli, said his client would either appeal through the civil service commission or file a grievance through the police union. Sandulli said Perreault didn’t intend the word as a racist insult and the city overreacted. ‘He was criticizing Crawford for being a bad player, not because he was a black man,’ Sandulli said. Source

Well, I learned something new. I really didn’t know the word ‘Monday’ can be used as a racial slur. In any case, the mayor made the right decision to fire him. His lawyer’s explanation is an affront to the black community, saying he was criticizing Crawford for being a bad player. Um, why not just call him a bad player, why use a racial slur?

Black Teen Charged with Felony for Attack on White Reporters Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami

Black Teen Charged with Felony for Attack on White Reporters Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami (Virginian-Pilot)

JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON RACIAL VIOLENCE:  A 16-year-old black teen has been charged with a felony in an April 14 attack on two Virginian-Pilot reporters, Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami, at the intersection of Brambleton Avenue and Church Street, in Norfolk, Va.

The youth, whose name was not released because of his age, is charged with felony throwing a missile at a vehicle, two counts of simple assault by mob, destruction of property and participation in a riot, interim Norfolk Police Chief Sharon Chamberlin said during a news conference this morning.

The arrest was made early this morning, Chamberlin said.

The assault happened shortly after 11 p.m. after reporters Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami left the Attucks Theatre following a show. Source

Dave Forster took to Twitter to see if there was any mention of the beating and found two disturbing tweets:  “I feel for the white man who got beat up at the light,” “I don’t, do it for  “Trayvon Martin.” I don’t care if its black-on-white or white-on-black, beating someone up is criminal and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Terry Rawls Arrested for Beating of White Mobile AL Resident Matthew Owens, Charged with First-Degree Assault

Terry Rawls Arrested for Beating of White Mobile AL Resident Matthew Owens, Charged with First-Degree Assault (Mobile County Metro Jail)

ARREST IN ‘JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON’ BEATING OF MATTHEW OWENS:  Terry Rawls, 44, was arrested and charged with first degree assault in the savage beating of Matthew Owens, a white man in Mobile, Ala., after a mob of 20 blacks descended on his home in a racially-motivated attack over basketball. Terry Rawls and Matthew Owens had an ongoing feud dating back to 2009, according to media reports.

Matthew Owens told a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive Saturday because they were allegedly noisy. He  was beaten with baseball bats, paint cans, brass knuckles and other weapons Saturday night, after a group of adults returned after the kids left and confronted him in his front yard. Owens’ sister Ashley Parker told police about 20 people assaulted her brother and one said, “now that’s justice for Trayvon.” Trayvon Martin is the unarmed black teen who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fl.

Now that police have made an arrest, they will be able to identify the other assailants and bring them to justice. Savagely beating someone isn’t the way to solve a dispute. Some role models these people are for their kids.

Matthew Owens Beaten Outside AL Home by Group of Black Teens & Adults Saying ‘That’s Justice for Trayvon’

MATTHEW OWENS BEATEN BY BLACK MOB:  Matthew Owens was savagely beaten outside his Mobile, Ala., home Saturday by an angry mob of teens and adults after he told them to stop playing basketball outside his home. One person allegedly told him  ‘that’s justice for Trayvon,’ the unarmed black teen who was shot to death by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in a Sanford, Fla., gated community.

The kids reportedly left the scene, only to reappear with adults in tow. Matthew Owens was hit with bricks, chairs, pipes and paint cans on his own front porch by 20 people after complaining about the noise. His sister, Ashley Parker, told WKRG the group attacking her white brother were all black, saying  ‘it was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.’ Matthew Owens was left bleeding on the ground and is in critical condition.

Even family and friends of Matthew Owens admit there was some tension on this street before Saturday night’s event. And they say a lot of this has to do with basketball. Relatives of the victim, who live on the street, say local kids often block Delmar Drive when they play basketball. They say it’s lead to some confrontations. Racial comments from both sides may have made the confrontations more toxic. Source

This is why cooler heads must prevail in the Trayvon Martin murder case. Too many people are taking the law into their own hands for all the wrong reasons and attacking innocent people. Matthew Owens had a right to tell the kids they were making too much noise outside his home. If you witnessed this savage beating, please call the police  at 251-208-7211, Crime Stoppers at 251-208-7000, or text a tip to 274637 and include the keyword CRIME 411.
