“My brother suffered!” Punk Arrested in Austin Mass Shooting that Left One Dead

When I started writing this blog a couple of years ago, I figured I would mostly be writing about food stamp fraud, Medicare fraud and miscellaneous political frauds and crooks with an occasional violent crime thrown in.

But, with the arrival of the Black Lives Matter era, the stories jumping out at me are ones that confirm almost daily that white American lives don’t matter as African Americans and illegal aliens (some legal ones too) take aim at us and each other.

Indeed the last three stories I posted here are on that subject, here, here, and here.

You have surely read about the news of the mass shooting in downtown Austin, the liberal capitol of conservative Texas that left this man dead.

I wouldn’t be mentioning it (because I can’t write the same blacks killing whites story daily) if it wasn’t for the news that I read at The Blaze.

Perpetuating stereotypes!

The Austin American-Statesman newspaper refused to publish the police description of one of the shooters they were looking for saying they would be “perpetuating stereotypes” if they told the public what the punk looked like.

Texas newspaper refuses to publish description of mass shooting suspect: ‘Perpetuating stereotypes’

A prominent Texas news outlet refused to publish the police-provided description of a suspect believed to be responsible for a mass shooting in Austin, Texas, over concerns that doing so would be “perpetuating stereotypes.”

Police in Austin, the capital of the Lone Star State, announced 14 people were injured after at least one person opened fire on people on Austin’s historic Sixth Street after 1 a.m. Saturday.

The perpetrator(s) apparently fired at random. Police did not know the motive, and they said gang-related activity had not been ruled out.

[….]

Yup! Arrested Jeremiah Roshaun Leland James Tabb fits the description. The 17 year-old will be tried as an adult.

When divulging details about the mass shooting, police provided a description of the suspected perpetrator, explaining they were searching for a “black male wearing a black shirt with a skinny build and with dreadlocks.”

However, the Austin American-Statesman, one of Texas’ most prominent newspapers, refused to publish that description, claiming they would be “perpetuating stereotypes” if they did.

The decision by corporate media to not describe or show a photograph of a perp when the perp doesn’t fit the Leftwing narrative the media is promoting is why I often have to search, often without success, for photos and information on where the criminal originated if he or she is a person of color or a new American.

From KXAN:

‘This senseless tragedy has put an end to all his dreams’: 25-year-old dies in downtown Austin mass shooting

Douglas John Kantor, 25, died from his injuries at an Austin hospital Sunday at 12:01 p.m., police say.

Kantor’s family said he was taken to Dell Seton Medical Center.

“He was shot through the abdomen just below the rib cage, straight through,” Kantor’s brother Nick Kantor said.

He suffered from the time of the injury until time of death, it was the most gruesome thing I could think to wish on someone. It’s painful to discuss, but I think the public deserves to know what my brother suffered.”

Two other victims of the over a dozen shot are in critical condition.

A second suspect is in custody.

Georgia: Pregnant Woman Stabbed by “Man” on Nature Trail

“My life was almost taken. Both my babies’ lives were almost taken.” 

(Valerie Kasper)

Just one more mentally ill homeless black man roaming America and committing violent crimes.

So, why is this story of interest?

Peachtree Creek Greenway a $10 million dollar “model mile” to connect people and places. https://www.peachtreecreek.org/

 

It caught my attention because this violent crime happened on a so-called greenway—a biking and nature trail that weaves its way through neighborhoods allowing public corridors for creeps with a criminal intent to be wandering far from the neighborhoods you would normally avoid and into communities you might assume are safe.

They call it “connecting communities.”  There are lots of papers on it, here is one.

For a little background, know that environmentalists dreamed up the greenway concept, originally called greenlining, knowing it would sell really well to upscale urban and suburban people who do want to exercise and get out into nature.

The next step to the greenlining plan is to control the adjoining properties, which enviros call the viewshed, as a way for the government to control land use.

When pushing new trails on a community, those environmental land use planners downplay the crime corridor potential—like the awful crime here on Atlanta’s Peachtree Creek Greenway.  

If you have trails like these near where you live, never, ever, use them alone! 

And, I would fight like hell to never have one through my community.

See also the story at US News. I didn’t use it because the “man’s” photo is not attached.  Where the photo should be, US News  features a political cartoon about Trump.

LOL!  Does US News have a fear of perpetuating stereotypes?

From CBS 46:

Judge denies bond for man accused of stabbing pregnant woman in Brookhaven

BROOKHAVEN, Ga. (CBS46) — A judge denied bond Friday for a man accused of stabbing a pregnant woman on the Peachtree Creek Greenway on June 5, citing the nature of the alleged crime and previous criminal history.

“Based on the facts and circumstances, as well as his criminal history and being out on bond on two charges — one of which is arguably a violent charge, I do find that he is a risk to the community,” DeKalb County Magistrate Judge Abbi S. Taylor said.

Christopher Jones, 30, was taken into custody Thursday morning near the Arts Center MARTA station. He is charged with aggravated assault with intent to murder, aggravated battery and cruelty to children in the first degree.

Police said a pregnant woman was walking along the Peachtree Creek Greenway with her three-year-old child around 5:30 p.m. when the suspect tried to start a conversation with her. As she walked away, the suspect allegedly stabbed the woman in the back, then stabbed her in her stomach and on her forearm.

“It just seems completely unprovoked and one of those questions that we’ll be asking why forever,” said the woman’s partner and father of her children, named Steven.

He and his partner are both international school teachers who met in Brazil. They were preparing to welcome their second child in September. The baby boy was born via emergency c-section after the attack. They will have a long road ahead.

Fortunately no one is dead this time.

See the video report and you will get a better understanding of why the woman’s partner doesn’t ‘get it.’

Virginia Tech Football Player who Murdered Tinder ‘Date’ Treated Like Victim

Described by his attorney as a “soft spoken young man” you would think that Ismemen David Etute was the victim not the white apparently gay or trans restaurant worker whose head was smashed and was left “bubbling and gurgling” to die.

“Isi” Etute

This story is all over the place and generally told in such a way as to make Isi Etute a 6’3, 205 pound linebacker look like the victim who claims he thought he was meeting with a woman for a second sexual encounter.

Feeling duped, he (understandably?) used his physical power to allegedly beat the man to death.

(I spent some time, searching to see if Etute’s family came to America as refugees (using a secret decoder ring!) but found no reference to his family’s immigration status. I did find many stories about Etute as an up and comer football player and a good catch for Virginia Tech.)

Here is the Roanoke Times on June 9th:

Virginia Tech football player Isi Etute told police he punched victim after meeting for sexual encounter

CHRISTIANSBURG — A now suspended Virginia Tech football player told police he punched a sexual partner five times in the face and stomped on him after discovering the person he thought was a woman was actually a man, according to arguments presented Wednesday in a Montgomery County courtroom.

Jerry Smith

According to the autopsy, all the bones in Blacksburg resident Jerry Paul Smith’s face were broken, his teeth were missing and he had multiple cranial fractures. The medical examiner’s office had previously revealed that Smith had died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Ismemen David Etute of Virginia Beach was arrested and charged with second-degree murder June 2 in the death of Smith, a Blacksburg restaurant worker.

Etute was granted bond in a hearing Wednesday morning in Montgomery County General District Court, but Chief Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Patrick Jensen filed an expedited appeal that would have kept Etute in jail for up to five more days.

The two sides later Wednesday came to an agreement to release Etute on a $75,000 secured bond under house arrest and electronic monitoring, according to a release put out by Commonwealth’s Attorney Mary Pettitt. The order restricts Etute from returning to Montgomery County except to consult with his attorney or to attend court proceedings.

Outside courthouse, the Etute family gets a hug from Virginia Tech players as if it was they who had a family member killed.

 

The courtroom was packed as Judge Randal Duncan excluded cameras from the courtroom at the start of the proceeding. Smith’s family was in attendance. More than a dozen football players — most of them clad in Virginia Tech gear — were there in support of Etute.

Etute was somehow tricked by Smith when it was his second visit to Smith’s apartment?

According to those statements, Etute visited the victim’s apartment April 10 for oral sex after he was matched up with someone named “Angie” on Tinder. Etute returned to the apartment May 31 to engage in sexual activity and discovered the person he was matched up with was a man, according to summaries of the evidence made by both Morgan and defense attorney Jimmy Turk.

Etute also told police that Smith did not assault him.

Etute told the police he punched the victim five times in the face and continued punching the victim when the person hit the ground and “stomped” on him. He heard “bubbling and gurgling” as he left the apartment, but didn’t call the police.

More here.  

The case gets complicated when two groups who often consider themselves discriminated against in the political victimhood game face each other.

Now see the Roanoke Times on June 10th and the reaction from the Gay/Trans community.

They are pretty angry that the alleged killer is being treated like the victim because he was somehow (justifiably?) angry at supposedly learning he wasn’t soliciting sex from a woman.

Killing of Jerry Paul Smith called ‘irrational,’ Isi Etute defense called discriminatory

Reverberations continued to spread Thursday from the Memorial Day killing of a gay Blacksburg man whose alleged attacker, a Hokie linebacker, told police that he’d lashed out after discovering the person he met for a sexual encounter was not a woman.

[….]

Reactions to the killing of Jerry Paul Smith, a 40-year-old restaurant project manager, grew louder after a Wednesday bond hearing for Isimemen David Etute, 18, of Blacksburg. Etute, a freshman on Virginia Tech’s football team until his arrest, at which point he was suspended, faces a second-degree murder charge.

In the courtroom, defense attorney Jimmy Turk of Radford said that Smith had solicited Etute for sex. After the hearing, Turk said, “Nobody deserves to die, but I don’t mind saying, don’t pretend you are something that you are not. Don’t target or lure anyone under that perception. That’s just wrong.”

Last week, a spokesperson for Smith’s family described him as a proud, openly gay man.

Turk’s remarks prompted waves of comments online and elsewhere.

Samantha Rosenthal, associate professor of history at Roanoke College and co-founder of the Southwest Virginia LGBTQ+ History Project, wrote in an email Thursday: “Regardless of the victim’s gender identity, the comments by Etute’s attorney demonstrate that the defense intends to use transness as an issue in this case. There is unfortunately a long history of framing transgender people as inherently deceptive or untruthful about their identities.

Joe Cobb

Roanoke City Council member Joe Cobb, who identifies as a member of the region’s LGBT community, had similar thoughts, saying the larger picture was of how LGBTQ people are seen by the wider society and often have been blamed for crimes in which they were the victims.

“That’s discrimination,” Cobb said.

Calling Smith’s death “horrific,” Cobb said that though many details remain unknown, the part that stood out to him was that it involved two consenting adults who had already had one sexual encounter.

This will be a trial to watch if it ever comes to that!

In the meantime, I still want to know if the Etutes are ‘New Americans,’ which I suspect they are.

Fargo, North Dakota: “Man” Attacks Skateboarder in Deadly Knife Assault

Video images show Arthur Prince Kollie slashed Jupiter Paulsen a 14-year old girl for 25 minutes in a random attack, not in a big crime-infested coastal city, but in Fargo, North Dakota.  She was stabbed 25 times before he attempted to strangle her and left her for dead.

Her family took her off life support on Tuesday.

 

Of course the “man” who looks an awful lot like a West African immigrant to me is never identified anywhere as an immigrant.    I could be wrong, he may be born and bred American trash, move along, just a drifter on drugs.  But, if anyone out there knows more, let me know!

Otherwise, as Ann Coulter has taught us, in cases like this, one has to get out a “secret decoder ring” to figure out where someone (the “man”) is from when the perpetrator of a crime appears to be an immigrant.  Again, I don’t know that he is, or is not, a ‘new American’!

But, by the way, the last name Kollie is a widely used family name in Liberia We have thousands upon thousands of Liberians in the US who got here through Temporary Protected Status, a ‘temporary’ (ha! ha!) refugee program Trump attempted to rein-in.

Here is the dreadful story from Valley News Live.

(hat tip: Daniel)

You might be interested to know that I wrote about refugees in Fargo less than two weeks ago at RRW and cited an interview at Valley News Live.  See that post. Fargo has been a controversial refugee resettlement hot spot for years as Leftists work to diversify America.

Fargo, North Dakota: Deputy Mayor Surprised to Learn Refugees Still Arriving

Valley News Live on Monday:

Records: Suspect says he was high on meth during brutal stabbing of teen girl

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) – Official documents have been filed against the man who police say strangled and brutally stabbed a 14-year-old girl last Friday near a Fargo strip mall.

23-year-old Arthur Prince Kollie is charged with the attempted murder of Jupiter Paulsen, robbery and aggravated assault.

Fargo Police say they were called to 4340 13th Ave. S. after documents say a garbage man was driving through the parking lot and witnessed Kollie leaning over the victim. The witness stated Kollie had one hand on the teenage victim’s nose and the other hand on her throat. Documents say video surveillance shows Kollie spent around 25 minutes assaulting the victim before running off.

Documents say Jupiter had suffered approximated 25 stab wounds, among other injuries. The victim was intubated and required surgery. On Monday morning, Jupiter’s father told Valley News Live that Jupiter is ‘too far gone,’ and likely won’t make it.

Investigators later learned from the Jupiter’s parents that both her cell phone and backpack were missing.

Documents say officers were later called to Walmart on 13th Ave. S. where Kollie had entered with no shirt and black pants on. Security cameras show Kollie taking new clothing, entering a room and later came out wearing new clothing. Officers say they found discarded black pants with what appeared to be blood on them inside the room Kollie went into. Documents say investigators also found shoes with what appeared to be blood on them in the same room.

Police say Kollie was later located in downtown Fargo.

Documents say Kollie told investigators that he suffers from anxiety, depression and multiple personality disorder and is currently living at Stepping Stones Resource Center. Kollie stated he used meth on the afternoon before and had not slept since using.

There is more including information on Kollie’s previous run-ins with the law.

Did You Forget About Pipe Bomber from January 5th? I Did!

Yes, whatever happened to that investigation?  Why is it taking so long to find the person on camera dropping pipe bombs off at two different locations near the US Capitol on January 5th.

Here is what a blogger called Techno Fog is saying (hat tip: Cathy):

The DC Pipe Bomb Suspect

What is the FBI hiding from the public?

It has been over five months and the FBI still has not apprehended the hooded suspect who placed pipe bombs near the RNC and DNC headquarters in Washington, D.C. on the evening of January 5, 2021.

The FBI’s latest wanted poster provides photographs and few identifying characteristics of the suspect:

There are, however, some curious omissions in the FBI’s description. By now, we assume the FBI (if it has done a thorough investigation) has the suspect’s height, approximate weight, and shoe size.

Why not disclose that information to the public?

Continue reading and see the informative photos where Techno Fog describes how to get more information on the suspect. Then this:

Why keep the suspect’s identifying information under wraps?

A couple possibilities. First, the FBI’s investigation is probably further along than any of us know. They’re collecting data on purchases of the suspect’s Nike Air Max Speed Turf and the timers, etc. used to make the pipe bombs. From that data they cross-reference travel, locations on 1/5/2021, height, shoe size, etc.

Second, maybe there’s something else to this story. The FBI has always been sensitive to its public perception and controls information to serve that purpose. For example, the FBI has never been forthcoming about its agents’ involvement with terror suspects.

Or, consider whether the pipe bomb investigation would cut against the politics of January 6. I take no pleasure in skepticism of the FBI, but this is a reputation the FBI has earned.

Either way, this outside observer can’t help but notice that one group of targets – those who entered the Capitol Building on January 6 – are pursued in the public sphere more aggressively than the person who set out pipe bombs the night before.

It could take YEARS to find the perp!

Oh great, a former FBI bomb specialist told NPR back in April, the most recent report I’m seeing, that it could take 10, 15, 20 years to get an indictment in a bombing case.

NPR reports that the FBI is doing “gait analysis.”

Check out the video here.  What do you think?  Does it look like a woman to you?

What We Know About The Suspect Who Planted Bombs Before The Capitol Riot

More than three months after the U.S. Capitol riot, a bomb-maker remains on the loose.

A majority of the public’s attention has been focused on the hundreds of people who have been charged for their role on Jan. 6. But the night before, someone committed a different crime: The person placed two explosive devices near the Capitol in Washington, D.C., and that person is still at large.

The FBI released a substantial amount of information [not enough for Techno Fog—ed] in an attempt to drum up leads from the public, and the reward for information about the suspect is now $100,000.

Here’s what is known: The suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a COVID-19 mask and expensive sneakers — Nike Air Max Speed Turf with a distinctive yellow logo. Sometime between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m., the suspect placed one pipe bomb on a park bench near the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee and another behind the Republican National Committee headquarters.

Doug Kouns spent 22 years in the FBI and focused on counterterrorism after the Sept. 11 attacks, and he said that the suspect made a concerted effort to hide their identity. “You can see the person’s wearing gloves. They seem to be familiar with the area. They probably know there’s cameras here and there and have really just covered their tracks,” Kouns said.

[….]

While the suspect’s motive is unknown, former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund testified before Congress that he believes that the devices were planted as a possible diversion ahead of the events the following day. “We were dealing with two pipe bombs that were specifically set right off the edge of our perimeter to, what I suspect, draw resources away,” he said in a congressional hearing. “I think there was a significant coordination with this attack.”

Despite all the resources that federal law enforcement has at its disposal, it has not yet been able to make an arrest in this case. “I would say it just takes time,” Black told NPR. “You know we’ve had investigations, bombing investigations … where it would be 10, 15, 20 years before someone was indicted.”

Continue here.

I’m in the camp with Techno Fog.  Why is this taking so long?

Finding the potential bomber would go a long way to show that it was either a diversionary tactic that was coordinated with events that unfolded the next day, or that the bombs were the work of an isolated nut (anarchist!) who wanted to create more chaos and further taint Trump patriots.

Just more evidence that the FBI isn’t doing its job, or worse, its investigation into the events surrounding January 6th is politically driven.
