Rotherham: In The Face Of Such Evil, Who Is The Racist Now?
” The Yorkshire town where 1,400 girls have been sexually abused by Asian men is a byword for depravity – all because people wouldn’t rock the multicultural boat
Let’s start with a riddle. If South Yorkshire Police can mount a raid on Sir Cliff Richard’s home in pursuit of evidence linked to a single allegation of child sex abuse 30 years ago, why were South Yorkshire Police incapable of pursuing multiple allegations against multiple men who raped 1,400 children over 16 years?
One thousand four hundred. Consider the weight of that number, feel its tragic heft. Picture 50 junior-school classes of little girls in Rotherham, once a respectable northern town, now a byword for depravity. We have seen child-grooming cases before, but the disgusting stories revealed in the report by Professor Alexis Jay amount to evidence of abuse on an industrial scale. “
The Oklahoman reported .
Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty said at a news conference that Holtzclaw stopped women while he was working and forced them to expose themselves, fondled them and in at least one instance had intercourse with a woman.
Authorities have statements from six victims and expect a statement from a seventh, Citty said. He also said investigators believe there are additional victims. “
” Fifteen people were shot in a rash of violence in New York City. The violence left two people dead and 13 others injured within a span of just 8 hours.
The NYPD reported the first shooting late Saturday. It happened at an East Harlem Park.
In that incident, 3 people were shot, with one of the victims being seriously injured, at Jefferson Park on 113th Street and First Avenue; Shortly before 3 a.m.
On Sunday, 2 people were shot dead in Hamilton Heights when a driver got out of his car and opened fire.”
Imagine the violence is New York City wasn’t “gun free” … and “gun free” Chicago faired no better over the weekend …
” Seven people have been killed and at least 29 others wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, police said.”
We’re sure those 42 wounded and 9 killed in Chicago and New York are grateful for the safe environment created by those city’s draconian gun regulations .
” New Hampshire State Police have accused a motorcyclist of traveling over 130 mph in a 70 mph speed zone on Interstate 93.
State police aircraft clocked the speed at 134 mph in the southbound lane in Canterbury at about 11 a.m. Monday and saw that it traveled in the breakdown lane and cut between lanes of traffic, passing vehicles. At times, the aircraft tracked the vehicle doing between 150 and 180 mph.
Police said the motorcycle pulled in behind a business on North Main Street in Concord, and troopers responded. They charged 31-year-old Daniel Thibeault of Swansea, Mass., with reckless conduct, disobeying an officer and driving after suspension. He’s scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer.”
While charged with doing “only” 134 mph , the aerial patrol plane estimated that Mr Thibeault actually hit speeds of between 150 and 180 mph .
” Monday’s death of President Ronald Reagan’s press secretary James S. Brady has been ruled a homicide resulting from the gunshot wound he suffered in the assassination attempt on Reagan in 1981, more than three decades ago.
The ruling was made by the medical examiner’s office in Virginia, where Brady, 73, died in an Alexandria retirement community, and was announced Friday by Gwendolyn Crump, the D.C. police department’s chief spokeswoman.
There was no immediate word on whether the shooter, John W. Hinckley Jr., who has been treated at St. Elizabeths psychiatric hospital since his trial, could face new criminal charges. Hinckley, 59, was found not guilty by reason of insanity after he shot Reagan and three others on March 30, 1981.
But the decision to pronounce Brady’s death a homicide 33 years after he was wounded outside the Washington Hilton on Connecticut Avenue NW raises questions about whether prosecutors can, and will, try to get around double jeopardy — the legal concept that protects a person from being tried twice for the same crime — and pursue a murder charge.”
This seems more a political move than a legal one and one wonders at the motivations behind this bizarre ruling . The man lived for thirty three years after being shot but now that he’s dead he’s a “gun-murder” victim ? How convenient for the Brady group’s anti-gun fundraising efforts . If you thought he was a martyr before , just wait .
” I am reliably informed that the folks over at Michael Bloomberg’s gun-control outfit, Everytown, believe earnestly that the above commercial makes the case for stricter gun control. The intended message, presumably, is: “We need to keep guns out of the hands of violent men with restraining orders.” A laudable aim, in and of itself.
Does this come across? Not really, no. What the video ends up doing instead is demonstrating a) that people who are willing to abduct children and shoot women in the face are not likely to follow the laws (the victim already has a restraining order out against her assailant, which frankly doesn’t seem to be doing much); b) that the victim would have been better off with a gun in her hand than with a phone connected to the police department; and c) that, firearms being a great equalizer between men and women, any rules that make it difficult for potential victims to get hold of guns (and make no mistake: Everytown supports them all) put vulnerable people in danger.”

While everyone can agree that we would like to eliminate domestic violence , as Katie Pavlich points out , the woman in this video has a much better chance of survival than does the woman waiting for the police to respond to her 911 call .
Which do you suppose is better able to defend the life of a woman alone , a restraining order or a pistol ? You are free to choose … keep it that way .
