Whistleblower: Murderer Gets Mistrial for Being Black

The forewoman of a jury in a Broward County, Florida homicide trial that ended in a mistrial has stepped forward to reveal that her fellow jurors declined to convict Dayonte Resiles of murder on the basis of his race.

Three jurors refused to sign off on a verdict that would convict Resiles of murder, instead insisting on a manslaughter conviction that would earn him a sentence of 15 years in prison. The trial ended in a mistrial on Tuesday when the foreperson refused to certify the jury’s verdict, the judge declaring the trial to end as such after the jury failed to reach a conclusion in additional deliberation.

Resiles, who is black, is accused of stabbing Jill Su, a 59-year old white woman, to death during a home invasion robbery. Resiles’ DNA had been obtained on a knife found at the home and on the belt of a bathrobe Su had been wearing, with the mother found stabbed to death in her bathtub. Resiles escaped from jail two years after his arrest for the murder of Su, being recaptured six days later.

“I don’t want to send a young Black male to jail for the rest of their life or have him get the death sentence,'” the foreperson has quoted of the jurors who opposed a murder conviction, speaking of her experiences with the trial with the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Read more…

2021: 12 Cities Have Broken Homicide Records

According to an ABC News report, 12 major American cities have reached annual homicide records in 2021, and there’s less than 3 weeks left in the year.

Of the 12 cities that have topped their records for kills, five of those bested records that were set or tied in 2020.

β€œIt’s terrible to every morning get up and have to go look at the numbers and then look at the news and see the stories. It’s just crazy. It’s just crazy and this needs to stop,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney stated after his city broke its yearly homicide record of 500. This record was first set in 1990.

Philadelphia, a city of about 1.5 million people, has racked up 521 homicides (as of December 6) β€” a figure that’s higher than some of America’s largest cities such as New York (443 as of December 5) and Los Angeles (352 as of November 27). Read more…

Get Ready For the Woke Border Patrol

According to several reports, the Department of Customs and Border Protection is compelling Border Patrol agents and other staff to go through “unconscious bias” training.

A report from the Washington Free Beacon stated that agents are being educated on “the impact of stereotypes and unconscious biases” in a seminar that Susan Fleming hosted. Fleming is described as an “expert in gender bias”.

In addition, the report explained that the seminar “will draw on academic research, business experience, and unique perspectives to explore the complex web of beliefs and biases that influence our interactions with colleagues, as well as discussing strategies for individuals and organizations to start overcoming unconscious biases.”

An anonymous Department of Homeland Security official told the Washington Free Beacon “CBP doesn’t have the people to properly patrol our nation’s borders but we do have the time to step away from work hours to have a conversation on ‘unconscious bias.'” Read more…

This Man Has No Regrets After Shooting Burglar

“I have the right to carry, I have the right to protect myself and protect my property,” said Smith. “We practice, but you never want to put it into action because it’s still a human life. But my life is more important to me than theirs is, and me going home to my family and kids is more important than theirs is. I don’t know what they wanted, or what they were doing, but I don’t care.”

…Jerahme Smith said two men broke into his home around 4:20 a.m.

Deputies responded to reports of a shooting on the 100 block of 165th Street East Thursday morning. Deputies found a 24-year-old man unresponsive at the scene. He was declared dead by first responders.

“I took action upon that, which was, unfortunately, taking one life, and the other one ran,” Smith recalled. Read more…

Crimewave: LA Police Are Warning Visitors Away

The head of the union representing officers of the Los Angeles Police Department is taking the extraordinary step of warning tourists to stay away from the crime-ridden city during the holiday season, with a crime wave and poor conditions blighting the once-great American city.

“My message to anyone thinking about coming to Los Angeles, especially during the holiday season, is don’t,” said Jamie McBride of the LA Police Protective League. McBride was speaking in a television interview on Monday.

Los Angeles has witnessed a spree of violent crime increases and wide-scale “smash and grab” robberies, with law enforcement largely powerless to arrest thieves and burglars under municipal orders intended to advance the cause of racial justice.

“We can’t guarantee your safety. It is really, really out of control. I said it to people before, it’s like that movie ‘Purge,’ you know, instead of 24 hours to commit your crime, these people have 365 days days to commit whatever they want,” said McBride, frankly admitting that the hobbled and muzzled law enforcement of Los Angeles can no longer enforce the rule of law in the city.

How Looting is Becoming a Way of Life

The level of lawlessness that we are now witnessing in the United States of America is absolutely breathtaking.

On average, thieves are stealing more than 100 million dollars worth of merchandise from our retailers every single day. Just think about that. I have written extensively about the shoplifting epidemic that is plaguing this country, but even I didn’t know that things had gotten that bad. Sadly, much of the thievery is being committed by highly organized gangs of looters. Last week, I posted absolutely stunning video of one of those gangs stealing vast quantities of laundry detergent from a retail store in Connecticut… Read more…
