A California duo was charged with a hate crime for defacing a newly painted Black Lives Matter mural outside of a courthouse, officials announced Tuesday. Nichole Anderson, 42, was filmed using a roller to cover part of the yellow letters with black paint on Saturday as her cohort, 53-year-old David Nelson, stood guard near the Wakefield Taylor Courthouse in Martinez, the Contra Costa District Attorney’s said.(Snip) “The narrative of police brutality, the narrative of oppression, the narrative of racism,” Nelson declared. “It’s a lie.” “I said no one wants Black Lives Matter here!” he added. “That’s what I said.

bLACK supremacist graffiti on public streets is sanctioned by cities, and police globally turn a blind eye to wanton destruction of property by Marxists. Let one couple peacefully demonstrate in favor of the idea that All Lives Matter, including WHITE people, and they're up on federal charges. USA 2020.

The REAL reason is that 'BurnLootMurder' (what they do) is actually the name of a million-dollar-budgeted Far Left Anarchist Racist hate group. Founders include people who proudly proclaim they are 'Trained Activists' (that is, political agitators) and Trained Marxists. Also in the mix is the New Black Panthers, a descendent group of the violent racist Black Panthers from the late 1960's. It's NOT about the Lives of black people. That's just camouflage so that anyone who criticizes the group is instantly shouted down and denounced as a Racist.

This is what's wrong with so-called "hate" crimes. How does one define a hate-crime? It's all about being punished for one's thoughts instead of their actions. I know. Some will point to motivation. But here is an instance where "motivation" is going to get one more years than the actual "crime" (vandalism?) would. This is a gross miscarriage of justice.

The hate crime was committed by painting that stupid, racist, rubber-stamped slogan on the street in the first place. Calling it a mural is giving credit to mindless herd mentality. The great awakening is coming, we just need to suffer a little more and be patient. People will realize what a big mistake it was to let children play with matches.

Homicides in Memphis are up more than 30% percent compared to this time last year. While the number is alarming, a different statistic is even more brutal—18 children and teens have been killed in 2020. So far this year, 120 Memphians have been killed in unjustifiable homicides, up from 92 at the same point last year, per city data. Officials in Memphis begged the public Wednesday for both information and further community involvement in measures like neighborhood watches and community programming.(Snip) Of the 18 children and teens killed this year, 14 were murdered and three were killed in accidental shootings.

Freeholders are a unique part of the state's political system.

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a large swath of eastern Oklahoma is actually an Indian reservation belonging to the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, meaning that hundreds of prosecutions could be tossed because the state does not have jurisdiction there, including in part of Tulsa.
