Tea Party Leader Jesse Lee Peterson Says Michael Brown a “Thug” Because He Ran From Cop

(OPINION) — Tea Party lunatic Jesse Lee Peterson, during an appearence on “The Steve Malzberg” show said he is disturbed that “thugs” like Michael Brown, the unarmed teen who was gunned down by a white police officer on a Ferguson, Mo., street, and Trayvon Martin, are “given the benefit of the doubt.” Really dumbass?

Peterson said criminals in America, “especially black criminals,” are let off too easily. Spoken like a true hypocrite. He added, “I’ve said from day one that Michael Brown is a thug.” How did he reach this conclusion? Because Michael Brown was “running the cops, period, because good folks do not run from police officers, they follow their instructions,” according to a video posted by Right Wing Watch.

Listen to venom being spewed by Jesse Lee Peterson about Michael Brown:

6 Cops Suspended Over Beating Death of Inmate Mario Dean at Montego Bay Police Station

JAMAICAN POLICE BRUTALITY:  Six Jamaican cops were suspended for the beating death of an inmate, Mario Dean, on August 6 at the Barnett Street Police Station in Montego Bay.

The officers, all connected to the Barnett Street station, were suspended after a probe into the beating death by the Inspectorate of Constabulary.

The Police High Command said two of the suspended are police corporals, one a police constable and the three others are district constables, the Jamaica Observer reports. The officers were all on duty when Mario Dean was beaten by prisoners in his cell on August 3.
Acting Commissioner of Police, Glenmore Hinds released a statement (H/T Jamaica Observer):

“We are urging citizens to remain calm and are appealing to relatives to support the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) and Police investigators in their probe.  We are assuring the citizenry that the JCF recognises the duty of care and we will be unrelenting in this regard, especially as it relates to persons in our custody,” said Acting Commissioner Hinds.

Mario Dean, 31, was arrested on August 3 for marijuana possession at his home in Rosemount, St. James. He was later transferred to a local hospital after the beating, where he died.  My guess is that the Jamaican police have more on their hands than to arrest someone for possession of a small amount of marijuana.

Oscar-Award winning actor Robin Williams dies at age 63. He was found dead at a home in Marin County. The coroner suspects suicide due to asphyxia as the cause of his death. He was found hanging with belt around his neck and a pocket-knife near his body. It doesn’t seem this was planned, judging from the use of a belt and not rope. He starred in “Mork & Mindy” and several other movies throughout the years, including “Jumanji” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.” He won an Oscar Award for “Good Will Hunting.” He battled depression for a long time.

Here’s a statement from the Marin County Sheriff:

On August 11, 2014, at approximately 11:55 am, Marin County Communications received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing inside his residence in unincorporated Tiburon, CA. The Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Tiburon Fire Department and Southern Marin Fire Protection District were dispatched to the incident with emergency personnel arriving on scene at 12:00 pm. The male subject, pronounced deceased at 12:02 pm has been identified as Robin McLaurin Williams, a 63 year old resident of unincorporated Tiburon, CA.

An investigation into the cause, manner, and circumstances of the death is currently underway by the Investigations and Coroner Divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. Preliminary information developed during the investigation indicates Mr. Williams was last seen alive at his residence, where he resides with his wife, at approximately 10:00 pm on August 10, 2014. Mr. Williams was located this morning shortly before the 9-1-1 call was placed to Marin County Communications. At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made. A forensic examination is currently scheduled for August 12, 2014 with subsequent toxicology testing to be conducted.

Robin Williams’ wife issued the following statement:”This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

President Obama on Robin Williams’ death: “He was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets.”

Race Car Driver Kevin Ward Jr. Hit and Killed by NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart

Race car driver Kevin Ward Jr., 20, was struck and killed by NASCAR driver Tony Stewart after he angrily approached his car during a sprint car race in Canandaigua, New York, Saturday night. Ward was upset Stewart had hit his car during a previous lap.

A video of the incident has surfaced and purportedly shows the altercation. A driver, thought to be Kevin Ward Jr., is seen exiting his crashed vehicle and stepping into oncoming traffic before he is suddenly struck and thrown in the air by Stewart’s car.

Onlookers say Ward was spun out of the race by Stewart and was hit as he passed the spot on his next lap, thought to be in Turn 2. Witnesses say Stewart, a three-time NASCAR champ, hit Ward on the prior lap — spun him around. Kevin Ward Jr., then hopped out of his car, yelling and pointing a finger at Tony Stewart. He struck the young driver when he came around the turn.

Here’s the video showing Kevin Ward Jr. being struck by Tony Stewart:

White Students No Longer a Majority in the U.S. Public Schools

White students are no longer a majority in American public schools. This fall, U.S. public schools are projected to have more minority students than non-Hispanic whites enrolled. The shift is largely due to a growth in the number of Hispanic children.

This year, non-Hispanic white students will still be the largest racial group in schools, but when minority groups are added together, they will make up the majority, the National Center for Education Services says.

“About 25 percent of minority students are Hispanics, 15 percent black and five percent are Asian and Pacific Islanders. Biracial students and Native Americans make up a smaller share of the minority student population,” the AP reports.

Allen was suspected of shootings in Lockport. The phrase used to describe him on the mugshot was considered offensive by many. The police chief blamed it on the software the police department used. He apologized and said they will undergo sensitivity training. He also said it would be deleted.
