A point on the 16 year old who died in Border Patrol custody

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Fascism, Harm, Hate, Health, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 10:02

I found out this morning that the boy had been sick for at least a week and died in a border patrol station for the following reasons.  This is a crisis of tRump’s own making and he can fix it with out extra money by following the laws and returning to policies he changed.   The boy was at a border station because the BP were not following the law to take him to an approved facility with in 72 hours of detention.  They were instead shuffling him from station to station.   Illegally.  The boy died in the commission of a crime against him!   In most states that makes the punishment for the crime much more severe.   I wonder how many others they are shuffling around instead of placing them in facilities?  They are making the conditions much worse than they need to be.   Now the boy was sick for at least a week.  He was seen by a medical practitioner, not a doctor.   He was diagnosed with the flu and shuffled around again instead of being taken to the hospital.   Any competent person can tell you the flu can be deadly if not treated correctly and promptly.  In the ICU I worked we dealt with many flu cases and yes some died.  Instead they left the boy in unacceptable conditions sleeping on the floor, and one report said the ground.  They did not care.  They simply do not see these children and adults as humans, as people.  They have made them so much the other that their conditions do not matter.   We seriously need to do something here people.  History has shown us where this goes from here if continued!   History doesn’t look on those who do these actions well.   Hugs

Is this really Pro-life Alabama?

“Pro-Life” Alabama Executes Mentally Disabled Man a Day After Banning Abortion

“Pro-Life” Alabama Executes Mentally Disabled Man a Day After Banning Abortion

One day after enacting a near-complete abortion ban, the “pro-life” state of Alabama has executed someone who had intellectual disabilities.

Samra invoked religion as he was executed by the state. His attorney held out hope that Governor Kay Iveywould extend her supposed “pro-life” beliefs to death penalty victims as well, but the hypocrisy remained in place.

Steven Sears, one of the attorneys, said the inmate received a denial of clemency from Gov. Kay Ivey’s office several hours earlier Thursday. Sears said he had gained hope on Wednesday when Ivey talked about the sanctity of life in signing a bill to virtually outlaw abortion in the state.

“Today my hopes were dashed. I guess she didn’t mean it,” he said after the execution.

Alabama executed a convicted murderer on Thursday, a day after the state enacted a near-total ban on abortions — two actions on contentious social issues that often have people across the political spectrum invoking the sanctity of human life.

It’s a contradiction that I always observed,” said Hannah Cox, the national manager of Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, an advocacy group. Approving of executions, Ms. Cox said, is “a stance that cheapens the pro-life argument.”

Starting in early childhood, family members observed that Brandon was developmentally slow and suffered tremors in his hands, and was in special education most of his life before dropping out of high school. Mental health experts found prior to trial that Brandon had a low IQ and recommended neurological testing after finding evidence of brain dysfunction.

But the appointed lawyers did not hire or consult with an expert in intellectual disability or obtain the recommended brain scans.

Instead of investigating evidence of brain dysfunction, trial counsel repeatedly told the jury that Brandon was a follower of Satan and his involvement in the crime was related to his membership in a Satan-worshipping gang — allegations so baseless and prejudicial that even the prosecutor recognized they could not be used against Brandon at trial.

ICE Director Nominee: I Can Tell Which Migrant Kids Will Grow Up To Be In Gangs By Looking In Their Eyes

ICE Director Nominee: I Can Tell Which Migrant Kids Will Grow Up To Be In Gangs By Looking In Their Eyes

Politico reports:

Mark Morgan, the White House choice to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said during a Fox News interview earlier this year that he can judge the likelihood that an unaccompanied minor will become a gang member by looking into that child’s eyes.

“I’ve been to detention facilities where I’ve walked up to these individuals that are so-called minors, 17 or under,” Morgan said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in January. “I’ve looked at them and I’ve looked at their eyes, Tucker — and I’ve said that is a soon-to-be MS-13 gang member. It’s unequivocal.”

Religious doesn’t mean good, Christian doesn’t mean moral

Pastor Who Raped Adopted 14-y.o. Daughter Gets Lenient Sentence Due to His Faith

Pastor Who Raped Adopted 14-y.o. Daughter Gets Lenient Sentence Due to His Faith

Here’s all you need to know about Pastor David Richards: He repeatedly raped his adopted daughter, starting when she was just 14 years old.

She finally told authorities when she was 16. He denied doing anything wrong, though his semen was found on her bed frame. A jury found him guilty on nine felony counts (including rape, incest, and sexual battery) earlier this year.

Richards faced the possibility of 72 years in prison.

You already know where this story is going, don’t you…?

 

Ultimately, the judge backed away from the 72 year maximum sentence he could’ve given… and settled on a mere 12.

 

It’s just another example of Christianity literally being treated as a Get Out of Jail Free card even though we’re talking about a convicted child rapist. An atheist who raped his daughter would go to jail for life, I guess, but a Christian man who sexually abuses his daughter over and over deserves some leniency because he’s really a good guy.

Amber Richards is the daughter in question, and she said in her impact statement that “Not a day goes by that I don’t, in some way, think of what he did to me. I firmly believe if given the opportunity, he would victimize another young girl.”

The judge heard that and ignored it. Then he gave David Richards the opportunity to traumatize more children in the future in part because of his dedication to Jesus.

Not Me!

Franklin Garham doesn’t want kids watching cartoons to know same sex marriages exist and are no big deal

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Family, Fascism, Gender, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 13:55

Days of freak outs by major religious figures are getting more and more silly.   The cartoon did not glorify sin, claim all kids need to be gay, or force kids to be godless and marry their same gender.   It is a secular show in a secular country that showed a normal legal activity.   Grow up already.   I am more worried these same cartoon kids have been in the third grade for 20 or 30 years.  What kind of message is that sending?   Please read the short article at the web page as I am tired of posting dumb shit for today.     Hugs

See conditions at McAllen Border Patrol station

Remember this humanitarian crisis is caused by tRump administration refusing to release people for hearings and for cutting down on judges and hearing officers.  Their intent is for none of these brown people to be able to stay in the US.   The administration hopes to be so cruel these people simply give up and go back to death.   Hugs

CNN has obtained exclusive photos from the McAllen Border Patrol station which show young children sleeping outside on rocks over the weekend.
A baby bottle filled with milk can be seen in one photo next to a child sleeping outside on dirt, and in another, a woman is seen sitting on rocks leaning against a wall clutching a child.
Additional photos show the chaos and overcrowding at the station’s outdoor temporary holding area. According to a CBP official, when indoor holding facilities are full, they are forced to keep people outside to await processing.

Teenage Pricks : Trumpism’s brand of boy power

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason — Scottie @ 17:43

An explanation of what drives tRump supporters.   It is not economic, it is the feeling that others are getting away with something they can’t get away with.  The vague feeling that they are not in charge or not in as much power as they once were or fell they should be.  It is something most of us have understood about the deplorables but so many just refused to admit. It is fascism, the ability to bully others and get away with it.   It is a power trip, an ego booster.  Hugs 

Teenage Pricks

But Trumpism took the racial resentment that was always the only successful recruiting strategy of the College Republicans and fused it with the only lesson he ever internalized in his elite education: complete irresponsibility is gloriously liberating. What unites Trump’s older base and his small core of young white devotees is the delight they take in watching him get away with it.

Trumpism’s pitch to young white men is thus a stirringly amoral sort of syllogism: we can’t give you anything material, because we stole it all and are hoarding it, but we can create a world in which you can regularly act on your worst impulses and get away with it. Some city kids are coming to town; here’s a way to racially mock them that won’t get us in trouble.

But when Trump said “this is the day we take our country back,” his “we” referred to a group too exclusive to include anyone from Jordan, Minnesota. And that serves, in another sort of brute syllogism of power, as their own license to unleash their own exclusionary rites of race-driven resentments on their own social inferiors without consequences. Boys will be boys, preying on other boys and girls.

Don’t bother

9-year-old boy charged in mother’s shooting death in Michigan

Filed under: Children, Gun Control, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 06:36

In the article there is a question if the boy was charged as an adult or not.  He is 9 years old, no he is not an adult.  Is this the big question here?   How about asking how he got the gun?  How about the fact he was under treatment and still had access to unsecured firearms?  Please read the article to see what presuppositions we have to fight against.   Hugs

COLORADO: Authorities Probe Whether School Security Officer Mistakenly Shot At Police, Wounded Student

Denver’s NBC News affiliate reports:

Authorities are investigating a report that a private security officer at STEM School Highlands Ranch shot at a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy responding to Tuesday’s attack that left one student dead and eight others wounded, 9News has confirmed with multiple law enforcement sources.

Investigators are also looking at the possibility a bullet from that security officer’s gun may have hit and wounded one of the students injured in the incident – a question that likely will not be answered until ballistics testing is complete, 9News has learned.

Trump Laughs At Rally Call To Shoot Migrants

Trump Laughs At Rally Call To Shoot Migrants [VIDEO]

New York Magazine reports:

“Shoot them,” he yelled, which caused the president, and much of the televised backdrop of crowd members, to laugh. “Only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement,” Trump said, interpreting the call to violence as a joke.

The Washington Post reports:

The fans seated directly behind Trump wore serious, perturbed frowns, which were quickly replaced by broad grins after the shouted suggestion that the solution involved firearms. Uproarious laughter rippled across the room as audience members whistled and offered a round of applause.

To critics, Trump’s failure to outright condemn the idea of shooting migrants amounted to a “tacit endorsement” of the sentiment.

Many pointed out that such rhetoric was especially concerning in light of the fact that an armed militia group, the United Constitutional Patriots, had been searching the borderlands for undocumented migrants and detaining them against their will.
