UPDATE: McBride Killer Sued and Jonathan Ferrell

Theodore Wafer, the White racist coward who gunned down Renisha McBride in November 2013, was convicted of the young woman's murder in August 2014. Unless his White Male Privilege (WMP) bears him out in the last hour, some how, he faces spending the rest of his life behind bars - potentially. Now sad-sack Wafer has something else on his mind to think about: he is being sued by McBride's family!



In addition to life behind bars, Wafer now faces a $10 million wrongful death suit from McBride's family. Wafer had been found guilty of McBride's murder in a Detroit courtroom on Thursday August 7th. No doubt, that criminal conviction paved the way for this current lawsuit against him. And according to at least one of the jurors who convicted the miserable POS, no one in that jury room bought Wafer's bullshit "self-defense" excuse for a minute! 

And according to prosecutors in the case, Wafer had plenty of options that night such as: 

- Turn on a porch light, see who the fuck it was.
- Asked who it was (at least then he would've known it was a woman, that probably would've allowed him to chill a bit.
- Called the cops, if he soo thought hts was in danger (that still would've made him a racist POS, but at least shooting someone would've been off his hands).
- Retreated to his domicile and simply waited for McBride to have gone away (which is pretty much what Michigan's "Stand-Your-Ground" law specifies, which is why that defense did him no good).
- To be an asshole, he could've brandished the shotgun he had in front of her. Dick move, yes... but a young woman wouldn't have been killed that night and his ass wouldn't be facing life in prison.
- Or Wafer could simply have been a decent fucking human and HELPED HER! 

Well Wafer brought this all upon himself. So he can go to Hell! His sentencing had been scheduled for Aug. 25th. It has been pushed back to Sept. 3rd. Targeting Cops will publish one final transmission on the McBride case, once Wafer's sentence is known.

In other news regarding a porch shooting case which preceded Renisha McBride, the cop who murdered Jonathan Ferrell has been indicted in that man's murder - YES!

Targeting Cops first addressed the racist murder of Ferrell back in Sept last year. Brief recap: In the early morning hours of Saturday September 14th 2013, Ferrell was driving home in CharlotteNorth Carolina, when he lost control of his car, resulting in a serious crash. Ferrell survived, but his vehicle was wrecked. He escaped by having to kick out the back windshield. Ferrell wandered for about half a mile before he ended up knocking on the door of the first house he saw, desperate for help (he had been injured and most likely suffered a concussion). However the person who was in the house at the time, Sarah McCartney 33, turned out to be racist cunt So rather than HELPING a wounded crash victim, she called police. In need of help, Ferrell attempted to flag down police the moment he saw them. They instead shocked him with a taser. After that, [now ex]officer Randall Kerrick of the Charlotte Metropolitan Police - gunned him down without further thought. Even as Ferrell lied on the ground dead or dying, his body was handcuffed.   

Autopsy reports later showed that Ferrell, 24 at the time of his death, was shot 10 times - excessive overkill.

Killer cop Randall Kerrick left, and the man he murdered, Jonathan Ferrell right. 


In a rare act of justice, piggy Kerrick has actually been fired and charged in Ferrell's murder, beleive it or not. Since then, a grand jury had initially declined to indict the 27 year old killer cop. However, the attorney general resubmitted the indictment to a second grand jury who did indict him on charges of voluntary manslaughter. Kerrick also is facing a wrongful death suit from Ferrell's parents. 

Jon Ferrell was a former football player for Florida A&M University. He had moved from FL to N.C. in 2013 to be closer to his fiancee Cache Heidel. He was working two jobs in order to pay for his tuition. Ferrell was attending school in Charlotte and was hoping to work for BMW as an engineer.

In May this year, a hold had been placed on the wrongful death suit. No trial date for Kerrick has yet been set, but his criminal case continues to proceed. More on this one later...
... and more on the on-going genocide against People of Color and the innocent in this fucked-up, poor excuse for a "democracy"...

Ferguson Continues to Burn...

The Missouri city of Ferguson has been a police living Hell ever since 18 year-old Michael Brown was murdered in cold blood by officer/racist monster Darren Wilson on Saturday August 9th. Wilson, a 9-year gang member of the Ferguson Police Gestapo (FPG) shot and killed Brown, even as the teenager had his HANDS UP, and pleaded for this putrid, piece-of-shit cop to DON'T SHOOT. Results from an independently conducted autopsy show that Brown was shot 6 times: two bullets striking him in the head, four in the right arm. This autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael M. Baden and was done at the request of Brown's family. The St. Louis County medical examiner had already done an initial autopsy, however, it will likely be months before their results are released. Plus, the St. Louis co. examiner most likely cannot be trusted to be impartial, anyways. 




Clearly it was murder: Dr. Baden points to an autopsy chart of 
Brown during an Aug. 18th press conference. Attorney Ben Crump, representing Brown's family, holds up the chart. 

On Friday Aug. 15th, Piggy Wilson was publicly identified as the racist, sadistic monster who killed Brown. This, after damn-near a week of stone-walling from Ferguson police thug officials. As of now, piggy Wilson remains on paid leave/vacation - standard reward system procedure in all police regimes, whenever one of their cops murders a civilian under dodgy circumstances, innocent or not. Cowardly cop Wilson is also reportedly in hiding (`ala Zimmerman), as well his ass should be. That this pig-beast would be well protected is a given, so would-be vigilantes/justice-seekers ought not waste their time (Wilson does not deserve the honor of martyrdom, anyways). And that he would garner much support from fellow cops as well as racist whites everywhere is also a given. However, if Wilson feels in any way under duress (dare he even feel sorry for himself), than he has only himself to blame! 

Imagine how Brown felt as he had his hands up, begging not to be killed... 

"Fuck racist Ferguson police regime terrorist Darren Wilson & so called "chief" Jackson. They are not police & do not represent law. Brother Michael was murdered & his murderer remains protected & free today." - Anonymous St. Louis County Black Foot Soldier statement





As feral, racist White cowards pile on in defense of piggy Wilson, a brave activist demands TRUE JUSTICE.


The tactical iron fist of militarized police terrorism has grappled Ferguson, in a way that few other American cities have experienced. The federal govt. has gotten involved in this police-induced mess. The Dept. of Justice (so-called) has sent 40 FBI agents to Ferguson in search of Civil Rights violations, as well as possible other crimes in which federal law enforcement agencies may have jurisdiction. Also, Attorney General Eric Holder visited the city on Wen. Aug. 20th. Holder pledged that the DOJ investigation in Ferguson will be, "full, fair, and independent". Sure. We shall see about that...

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is hedging his own bets over just how involved he will get in this. For a president who seems to openly loath People of Color (especially Arabs, seeing as he's killed soo many of them) and avoids race issues like the horrid plague, this ought to be an interesting dance for him. And despite calls for him to do so, Obama has not yet committed to paying a visit to the Ferguson war zone just yet. And frankly, one has to question just what damned good that would even do. For his part though, Obama has pledged to send three White House aides to Michael Brown's funeral - a positive, non-controversial gesture that only the most racist, low-down of Whites might take issue with. The Reverend *Al Sharpton - who's been all over this thing as if Brown were his child - will be delivering the eulogy (*it is worth noting that Sharpton also happens to be a known FBI snitch, working in cahoots with the same federal law enforcement agency that created COINTELPRO, as well as targeted MLK Jr.).

Services are set to be held on Monday Aug. 25th. It is expected to be one of the most heavily attended, heavily politicized, heavily police-guarded, and polarizing funerals this year so far. Here's hoping the dearly departed [himself] won't be forgotten about in such a media maley. R.I.P. Michael Brown...
    
Trust us, we're from the government: FBI agents leave behind their calling card in Ferguson, pledging to do "good".

 A reporter tweeted a photo of a card that FBI agents are handing out near the scene of the Brown shooting

Commander-In-Dodge: Peaceful Ferguson residents call for President "Post-Racial" to stop acting scared and speak up on their behalf, for once. 


As events in Ferguson continue to digress, reports of heinous, CRIMINAL police abuse continue to pour out. And similar to what takes place in war-torn conflicts across the world, journalists attempting to report in Ferguson have increasingly found themselves the targets of state-police aggression/state-violence nearly as much as unarmed civilians. 


One particular skinhead cop was caught on video threatening to kill people, as he marched down a street with a police-issued assault rifle (AR-15 most likely), raised in a life-threatening position. The video itself is a tad shaky, but the cop in it can clearly be seen acting like a fucking thug, pointing his assault rifle at peaceful marchers and journalists alike. This pig can be audibly heard yelling, "I WILL FUCKING KILL YOUGET BACK!" at groups of people and reporters alike. It has since been reported that this thug, identified as officer 'Gofuckyourself', is a gang member of the suburban St. Louis Police Gestapo. Officer Gofuckyourself has since been removed from active duty. A positive first step, yes. However, making terrorist and/or criminal death threats is a violation of MO state law, as it is in every other state. Yet, officer Gofuckyourself remains employed by the MO State Patrol, and is still drawing his paychecks. No word yet as to whether criminal charges will be filed against officer Gofuckyourself for issuing direct death threats, as well as brandishing a deadly assault weapon in a threatening manner (menacing/criminal mischief). 

UPDATE: It has since been reported that officer Gofuckyourself/officer Numbnuts has been officially identified as Lt. Ray Albers, 46. Albers is a 20-year police gang member (though apparently not always of the St. Louis police). Furthermore, he has been suspended indefinitely and without pay, pending investigation! Alber's criminal act was reported to have occurred late Tuesday night on Aug. 19th.  

It should be duly noted that officer Albers/dickless also served four years in the U.S. Army, according to reports. So that military assault weapon he used to threaten people's lives with was most likely a "take-home" weapon, courtesy of the U.S. Army.

HERE is what the dirty skinhead pig looks like. Lt. Ray Albers *aka officer Gofuckyourself, *aka Actlikeathug seen here.

And in other police terrorist news concerning Ferguson, cops have threatened aggravated assault against Al Jazeera journalists. And as the following video clearly shows, an Al Jazeera America TV crew was forced to flee for safety, after Ferguson Police Gestapo intentionally hit the media crew with tear gas.

World respected Al Jazeera is very much accustomed to such acts of brazen state-police violence in, say, Apartheid Israel - where the IDF are known to attack non-jewish and foreign reporters often. It is quite possible that the AJA news crew hadn't bargained on being subjected to similar levels of state-police terrorism, when reporting on incidents of racial unrest in small American cities.

Gaza? Nope, just Ferguson: Militarized police terrorist gestapo caught on film launching a tear gas attack against Al Jazeera news crew. 


In more Ferguson news regarding police crimes against journalists, a Getty Images photojournalist was unjustly arrested by Ferguson terrorist gestapo on Monday Aug. 18th. Photojournalist Scott Olson (not to be confused with Scott Olsen, the ex-marine-turned-activist who was nearly killed by sadistic police monsters during Occupy actions in Oakland) was arrested for apparently "refusing to obey" orders. What this translates into is, Olson had dared to leave a media "holding pen" designated for reporters. But despite the fact that Olson was doing his job in public spaces, he was arrested anyways. Olson was released without charge several hours later. Clearly, he along with all media (especially non-embedded) were being sent a "message".
"He (police thug in charge) told me I had to be in the media pen across the street and I asked him if the area was open to the public and I told him if it was open to the public then it should be open to the press. He said, "if you're with the media you have to be across the street." I told him I was going to roll video because I think it was a violation of the first amendment and I wanted to document it and as soon as I said that, he ordered me arrested. I was cuffed, put in a van and taken away." - Scott Olson in an interview with MSNBC.

"Most of these protesters are peaceful," he said. "If you have several people there trying to disrupt the protest, you're not going to shoot at them with a rifle. Not in a crowd like that." - Olson, in an interview with NPR, commenting on the shocking crimes of heavily armed police squads marauding throughout Ferguson.

In fact, several people connected with media outlets (both national and international) have been arrested, detained, or otherwise impeded from reporting on the unfolding events in Ferguson. In addition, dozens of arrests of peaceful protesters and common citizens alike have been reported since Michael Brown's murder on Aug. 9th. Even more troubling, reports of gunshot victims streaming into local hospitals have also been coming out. And at least one person was reported to have been gunned down by police thugs during street protests. To date though, not a single cop has suffered any injuries. At this point, a de facto martial law has been declared in the St. Louis suburb. Officially, unofficially... when the police themselves brazenly violate the law and act as an occupying military force would, it really doesn't matter worth a damn.

Police authoritarians have claimed that officers have been coming under "heavy gunfire" and have continuously cited so-called "criminal elements" in justifying the mass arrests. There is no doubt that a handful of opportunists have taken it upon themselves to use the Ferguson crisis as cover for committing isolated criminal acts. And typically, an event which has received such international attention might very well attract outside troublemakers who have no connection to the city. However, one must always be aware of agent provocateurs whenever something like this happens. 


http://www.dailypaul.com/324740/ferguson-mo-protest-fbi-cointel-black-bloc-looking-agent-provocateur-caught-attempting-to-incite-by-throwing-bricks-at-co 


As mentioned previously, what's happening in Ferguson, MO right now is by no means, an anomoly. And to be perfectly frank, even if the pig who murdered Brown were to be arrested, indicted, tried, convicted, and EXECUTED in under six months... that would do little to fundamentally change why things are the way they are in Ferguson. 

What are some of the [other] key issues that have been unveiled in the wake of Brown's murder? Well to start with, how about a city with a 67.4% Black population, yet, these people have no representation on city council. How about a 53-man police force which is virtually all-white... save for a reported three Black officers (and how'd they got in there, Hell only knows). How about the fact that in a city with over 67% Blacks, yet nearly ALL arrests (90%) are Black? 

Simply asking these questions would be a great start. But instead, these goddamned pigs want to roll in with their bearcats, their kevlar shit, and other military hardware. Missouri governor Jay Nixon (White, conservative POS), brings in the National Guard, which has only exacerbated tensions. And Obama doesn't really do shit at all, since he pretty much loathes Black people anyways. 

So, it's going to continue to be a fucking mess for a while. No hope...

Ferguson Reduced to POLICE WAR ZONE!

 18 year old Michael Brown Jr. was ruthlessly gunned down by a filthy goddamned COWARD of a cop on Saturday August 9th 2014. Since then, it would be safe to say that ALL HELL has broken loose in Ferguson, Missouri!

   

Targeting Cops first covered the senseless murder of Michael Brown several days ago. And in the week following Brown's murder at the hands of a Ferguson cop, a Hell of a lot has been happening (and is still happening) in the St. Louis suburb of 21,100 residents. 

http://cdn.crooksandliars.com/files/imagecache/node_primary/primary_image/14/08/screenshot_2014-08-16_01.54.52.png

To begin with, the bastard-ass cop who gunned Brown down has been officially identified as officer Darren Wilson - said to be a six-year gang member of the Ferguson Police Gestapo (FPG). The FPG has withheld Wilson's name for days, giving protection and anonymity to a wanton killer, while at the same time further fueling the anger and frustration of citizens who were finally fed up with years of police harassment, injustice, and killings. 

While Brown's dead body laid in the street exposed for more than four hours last Saturday afternoon, the police regime of Ferguson protected the killer's identity and continued to do so for the next seven days. Fed-up residents have been demonstrating in the streets of Ferguson every day since Brown's murder, and one of their greatest demands was that the bastard's name be released. That finally happened on Friday Aug. 15th, when Ferguson police Chief piggy Thomas Jackson announced Wilson's name during what was likely the most anticipated press conference of the year, so far. 

Fat, ugly, white-haired Ferguson police chief Thomas "Bubba" Jackson seen here, during a Friday press conference in which he names officer Wilson, and also makes fresh accusations of "robbery" against a dead Michael Brown.


Here he is: Racist, sadistic peckerwood Ferguson pig Darren Wilson seen here. This photo was posted onto his dad's facebook page back in Feb. 2014. Here, John Wilson is congratulating his future killer of a son, whom had just received a police commendation during this time. Six months later, he would gun down an innocent, defenseless, college-bound teenager in the street.




































Even though the killer cop's name was officially made public during Friday's press conference, neither piggy Wilson, nor his murder of an unarmed teenager were the focus. Instead, chief piggy Jackson spent most of his time talking about Michael Brown and fresh (brand new) accusations of Brown having been a suspect in some "strong-armed robbery" just minutes before being killed. WHAT?! GTFO! 

So, seven days go by and the official word from both Ferguson, as well St. Louis Co. police regimes had been that - Brown was fighting with [officer] Wilson to try and get his gun. Wilson shot Brown in self-defense. That's what Ferguson and St. Louis Co. police had been saying since Sunday Aug. 10th. Now ALL OF A SUDDEN, these filthy, repulsive, low-down dirty-ass pigs change their story completely. NOW they are saying that Brown and [friend] Dorin Johnson were suspects in a so-called "robbery" at a convenience store that had taken place just minutes prior to Wilson and Brown encountering one another. None of this shit had been mentioned prior to Friday Aug. 15th. So just how convenient it is that Ferguson police suddenly decide to mention Brown (and Johnson) being "robbery suspects", right after Wilson's name is announced! Funny how they never mentioned this before. 

Calling bullshit: Grainy footage of [what police say] was Brown roughing up a small man at a nearby corner store. However, little can be decerned from these poor quality stills. Plus, it cannot even be confirmed that the larger individual in these shots is in fact Brown. Also, no actual video has yet been released... only these cheap-ass stills. These cops are all full of SHIT!

So the spin is in: the police are doing what they can to skew things in their favor, and that of course involves a lot of victim-shaming. And true to form as always, corporate zionist mainstream media ades and abets in whatever heinous propaganda law enforcement puts out. Indeed, racist bias in media abounds thoroughly! It was certainly true with Trayvon Martin, when right-wingers, cop-apologists, and racists in general amped up a relentless, fanatical smear campaign, portraying Martin as a "thug" who some how brought upon his own death. It was true right here in Portland when [currently sitting] mayor CharLIE Hales once smeared police murder victim Keaton Otis as a "gang member". It is true in every case where a Person of Color is killed by these police monsters. And the police have been working very hard to smear Brown before his body was even carried away. 

But let's make one thing perfectly clear (and this is for the so-called "liberals" out there and their never-ending quest to find the "perfect" victim) - NO ONE deserves to be gunned down in the street! Whether Brown was on his way to college or robbing a store, it is irrelevant... NO ONE DESERVES TO BE GUNNED DOWN IN THE STREET!!!  



It's happening: A despaired protester holds up a sign for cameras, whilst heavily armed, militarized police gestapo stand in the background.

American war zone: Militarized Ferguson police gestapo launched tear gas attacks against peaceful demonstrators. 

But even before Friday's shameful press conference, Ferguson, MO has already been through Hell, with more to come. Violent gang members from both Ferguson and St. Louis Co. police regimes dressed up in heavy armor, green fatigues, gas masks, and kevlar helmets to wage an armed offensive against peaceful protesters. These monsters utilized military assault weapons, anti-personnel vehicles, rubber bullets, bean bag rounds, and hundreds of canisters of tear gas to crush demonstrations. Police terrorists have also enforced martial law, imposing night-time curfews and setting up armed checkpoints at virtually every intersection in town. Ferguson has very much been under absolute police siege since Sun. Aug. 10th - the day after Brown's murder. The police have used the excuse of "looters" and other sporadic alleged acts of criminality for the extreme measures. But even if there have been a small number of opportunists who've taken advantage of an extremely dramatic situation, that fact is that the overwhelming majority of people in Ferguson have been peaceful and nonviolent. Residents have still expressed their anger, as they are well justified to do so. 

FUCK COPS! Brave defiance, in the face of police-state terrorism!

This sort of behavior is very typical of state authoritarians in despotic regimes from other countries. Places such as Egypt, Israel, Sri lanKa, Honduras, Brazil, and Bahrain, have all provided very recent examples of state-police thugs self-militarizing, attacking peaceful activists, firing tear gas indiscriminately, erecting blockades, and enforcing lock-downs and curfews - wildly out of proportion to a miniscule number of sporadic criminal acts. 

OH, and ARRESTING JOURNALISTS, YEAH! That's another thing state-police thugs tend to do a lot of in common dictatorships... very typical, very predictable. It also happens to be what the Ferguson police-gestapo did in the past week. On Wednesday Aug. 13th as gestapo-police goons were busy busting up gatherings and firing tear gas at women and children, these sadistic monsters also decided to take a couple of journalists as well. Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post and Ryan J. Reilly of the Huffington Post were both unjustly arrested by armor-clad SWAT thugs while they were filing their reports inside a local McDonalds. Lowery himself tweeted that he was slammed into a soda machine by cops. Reason given for this thuggish act of police violence was basically, that the reporter wasn't, "obeying orders fast enough". Additionally, an Al-Jazeera camera crew was attacked by police. The crew had their cameras taken and were forced to flee tear gas attacks.  


Ryan Reilly, a reporter for Huffington Post, was also arrested in a McDonald's in Ferguson
The two journalists had been working together in the fast food restaurant when a SWAT team entered

The extreme militarized response of authorities there was by no means an anomaly. In fact, fascist police regimes in virtually every U.S. city - from large metropolises to small villages - possess the capacity to wage a military siege against citizens (& journalists) the way they have in Ferguson. That's because the U.S. govt. and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have been making its military surplus available local police regimes all over the country for years. So the utter militarization of police thugs in Ferguson has been very much by design, with the govt. being implicit in this design. 

Actually, it's all very similar to how the imperial American govt. has been arming (and funding) fascist state-police regimes in other countries for decades!

This is not nearly the end. Ferguson is [literally] burning right now and this has been a long time coming. What people must understand is that what is happening in this modest St. Louis suburb right now is not only by design, but this shit can happen anywhere and has happened in many places, already! In order to save their own lives, citizens need to ARM THEMSELVES against all forms of aggression which threatens their lives and safety. Forget what the so-called "law" is - laws are designed to disenfranchise and disarm people! WHY do you think there are soo damned many "laws" to begin with??? So many laws, so many reasons/pretexts for police to stop/harass/kill people!!!

McBride Killer Found GUILTY!

The ruthless, gruesome shotgun murder of Renishia McBride had initially been addressed by Targeting Cops back in November 2013. TC revisited the McBride case again in May this year with an update regarding her killer's [then] upcoming trial. Now, for some good news: McBride's murderer has been found GUILTY



After a trial lasting about three weeks, the cowardly sniveling killer of McBride - Theodore Wafer - was found guilty of 2nd degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and a felony weapons charge. The verdict was handed down on Thursday August 7th 2014. Wafer's sentencing date has been scheduled for between Aug. 25th, according to Wayne County prosecutors.  

Brief recap, many of you should know the details by now: On late night November 1st 2013 Renisha McBride - a 19 year old Black woman - was heading back home from a friend's house. The entire incident took place in Dearborn Heights, MI, a suburb of Detroit. At some point McBride, who was legally drunk at the time, had lost control of her car and crashed. She survived, but was dazed, bloody, and had sustained a head injury. She exited her vehicle and walked in the dark for several hours until she ended up on the doorstep of Ted Wafer's house at around 4:30am that morning. Wafer awoke to McBride knocking or banging on his front door. McBride was injured, confused, and was seeking any sort of help. However, when Wafer opened his steel front door and saw McBride, instead of helping a startled, dazed, and injured young woman, he took the Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun he already had in his hand, pointed it at McBride's head, and blew her away without a moment's second thought. He shot her through a screen door, which hadn't been open. 



Wafer waited a little while before deciding he would bother calling 911. When police and emergency personnel arrived at the scene, they found McBride lying in the front yard, a few feet away from the front porch - dead - with part of her face destroyed. 





Wafer wasn't arrested right away. In fact it would be nearly two weeks before that happened, and then only due to insurmountable community outrage. The pisspoor excuse Wafer initially provided authorities was that his gun had gone off "accidentally". But he changed his story once he discovered that Michigan had a "Stand-Your-Ground" law, a week and a lawyer later. Now this racist monster was claiming "self-defense"; claiming that he was in fear of his life from this petite, 100+ pound 19 yr-old woman. Wafer was probably thinking: if it worked for (POS)Zimmerman, it should work for him too. And honestly, who could have blamed him for thinking such a thing? 

Well, it didn't work! Shortly after Wafer was [finally] taken into custody in mid Nov. 2013, he was indicted on charges of 2nd degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and a felony weapons violation. His murder trial began on July 21st and he was convicted of those charges on Aug. 7th. Wafer is now awaiting sentencing in which he could possibly face up to life in prison... GOOD! Upon listening to the verdict being announced in court, Renisha's parents - Monica McBride and Walter Simmons, were relieved that they finally were able to see some measure of justice for their daughter.

“I wanted justice. “You know, looking at him to know that justice needs to be served. You did cold-blooded murder. That was murder! That was no accident. That was not self-defense. He did murder!” - Monica McBride, Renisha's mother, giving a statement after hearing Wafer's guilty verdict in court.


“He was a cold-blooded killer. He didn't even know her. She was a beautiful young lady, you know. She had things going for her.” - Walter Simmons, Renisha's father,  commenting on the guilty verdict of his daughter's murderer. 




Justice for her daughter: Renisha's mother Monica McBride gives a tearful statement during a post-verdict press conference.

Racist chump... look at you NOW: killer Ted Wafer listens to the evidence that would eventually be used to convict his sorry peckerwood ass during a court hearing back in the Spring. 


Patrick Muscat, assistant prosecutor in Wafer's murder trial, presents his closing arguments in a Detroit courtroom on Aug. 6th. 



Athina Siringas, asst. prosecutor, delivers closing arguments in Wafer's murder trial. 


She gave it her best 'shot': Wafer's defense attorney Cheryl Carpenter holds up a screen door in a vain attempt to try and convince a jury of her client's innocence. So much for THAT!


It has been reported that Wafer was shocked at his conviction. And of course he was - a White man having actually been found guilty under criminal court of law for shooting a Black woman is infact pretty goddamned shocking. Considering that the prosecution team (save for Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy) is White, as well as the jury (of Wafer's own peers, assuming, since Blacks are so rarely ever allowed on juries). And also considering the track record of this miserable so-called "democracy" in which we all find ourselves ensnared. Frankly, he's not the only one who was shocked. Wafer's lawyer, Cheryl Carpenter, has decried that even a 15-year prison sentence would essentially be a "death" sentence for her chickenshit client... given his age (Wafer is 55. 15 years would not be a fucking death sentence, so his lawyer can STFU). 

Well here's hoping Wafer doesn't even last that long. Hopefully his sorry peckerwood ass will end up getting beaten to death within his first year in prison - and he would deserve it too!

DEATH TO COWARDS, RACISTS, AND THOSE WHO MURDER THE INNOCENT!!!

Aw shucks: newly minted jailbird Wafer bemoans his lot in life, after listening to a jury hand down his guilty verdict. Maybe the Aryan Brotherhood will protect him in prison.   

In remembrance of Renisha...

That Renisha McBride's killer would not only see his day in court, but actually be CONVICTED of her murder is a rare moment of American justice, indeed. That said, moments such as this should never be taken for granted. When police arrived at Theodore Wafer's home on Nov. 2nd 2013 and found a dead young woman laying in his lawn with part of her face missing, they did not arrest him right away. Not even the next day. Wafer hadn't been arrested and charged with a crime until Nov. 15th - damn near two weeks after the fact. And even then, only after much pressure from local citizens, as well as a shitload of national coverage. Wafer was a piece of White trash and he was afforded every benefit of doubt. Even now, people should not breath a sigh of relief because who knows what this bastard's sentence will be...
And just think about this... what if Wafer had been a goddamned cop...

The FACT is, Whites who murder people of color, are then arrested, prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to lengthy prison terms is FUCKING RARE! And as far as cops themselves ever seeing significant prison time for murdering POC... 
At the time of this latest blog's entry, 18 year old Michael Brown would have just been murdered by a filthy pig-beast (since identified as officer Darren Wilson) in Ferguson, MO. Just a few days later, Dante Parker would be tasered to death by cop thugs in Victorville, CA. Just a few weeks prior, Eric Garner would be choked to death by rabid police monsters in NYC. 
This year saw the fourth anniversaries of the murders of Portland residents Aaron Campbell and Keaton Dupree Otis. Scars over the racist murders of Trayvon Martin, Aiyana Jones, and Oscar Grant haven't healed yet. And Lovelle Mixon, Maurice Clemmons, and Christopher Dorner are among the few martyrs/heroes citizens have to look to for inspiration.
