Trump Effect: Biracial 8-year-old boy lynched by teenagers in New Hampshire

 

By Egberto Willies  …..Monday Sep 11, 2017 · 12:37 PM PDT …..The Trump Effect continues. A nation can rot from its head, and there are many indications that we are seeing that more now than ever in recent times. Why would a 14 yr old kid lynch an 8-year-old bi-racial boy?

 

Police are investigating the incident of an 8-year-old boy lynched apparently by boys who taunted him with racial epithets.  The boy’s mother wrote the following in a Facebook post.

“So my son is being flown to Dartmouth after a 14 year old kid decided to hang him from a tree. I don’t care if this was a so called accident or not. My son almost died because of some little sh** teenage kids.” [sic]

 

Valley News reported the following…….Claremont — The family of an 8-year-old Claremont boy says it is trying to determine what led him to suffer from rope burns around his neck in the backyard of a home near Barnes Park late last month. The boy’s grandmother, Lorrie Slattery, said her grandson and a group of teenagers were playing in a yard in their neighborhood around 5 p.m. on Aug. 28 when the teens started calling the boy racial epithets and throwing sticks and rocks at his legs.

The situation escalated when some or all of the teens stepped up on a picnic table and grabbed a nearby rope that had been part of a tire swing, Slattery said. “The (teenagers) said, ‘Look at this,’ supposedly putting the rope around their necks,” Slattery said. “One boy said to (her grandson), ‘Let’s do this,’ and then pushed him off the picnic table and hung him.” It’s not clear based on Slattery’s account if the rope was forced over the boy’s neck or if he allowed it there voluntarily.

As of this post, the police is refusing to comment on the incident other than confirming there was an incident. Law enforcement is citing confidentiality that protects juvenile proceedings.

As he has done repeatedly, Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase on Thursday declined to comment on the case, citing confidentiality laws that protect juveniles. Chase has confirmed that there was an incident involving juveniles on Aug. 28 that remains under investigation.

In an interview on Thursday, he acknowledged that he has received several inquiries from people both in and out of Claremont, and though he is constrained on what he can say, he said he has reassured each person that the police department is committed to getting to the bottom of all complaints it receives. For good reasons, Chase said, criminal investigations involving juveniles are kept confidential. “Mistakes they make as a young child should not have to follow them for the rest of their life,” Chase said.

The chief seems more concerned about the well-being of the teenagers that did the lynching than of the young man lynched. Angela Helm of The Root says it best.

*Notice how he called these predators “young children,” infantilizing the white teens. Conversely, teens like Trayvon Martin are made out to be hulking, menacing adults. Chief Chase seems to be centering the perpetrators’ feelings and futures, all but forgetting about the trauma of a little boy who had his so-called friends hang him from a tree to the point where he had to be medevaced to a hospital.

This incident could scar the young boy for life. One hopes they give the requisite punishment to the criminals that did this lynching……….(h/t The Root, NH1.com, Valley News)

clip_image002Kansas Bank Has Entire Arab-American Family Arrested After Father Tries to Deposit Check from Home Sale

“I would expect this in the 1950s. Not now.”

By Noor Al-Sibai / Raw Story  September 12, 2017, 5:46 AM GMT  …Kansas City resident Sattar Ali, an Iraqi-American doctoral student, was arrested along with his family after Ali attempted to deposit a large check from the sale of their home.

According to Wichita State’s student newspaper, the Sunflower, Ali, who moved to the United States in 1993, took a check for $151,000 from the sale of his family’s old house in Michigan to Wichita’s Emprise Bank. As he told local news station KAKE, he brought verification documents along with him, but a few minutes after he presented tellers with the check, he was in handcuffs.

After being taken outside, Ali discovered his wife Hadil and their 15-year-old daughter Hawra were in the backseat of the police car waiting for him. Sometime during their three-hour detainment, Ali said police called his 11-year-old son’s school to tell them to hold him because his parents had been arrested.

He said he didn’t discover until after they were released that he and his family had been arrested because the bank claimed they could not verify the large check and believed it was fraudulent.

“No one told me why I was being arrested until we were being released,” Ali told the Sunflower. “They didn’t read me rights or anything.”

“We were devastated. Terrified. Crying the whole time,” Ali said. “We had no idea what the arrest was for.”

Ali told the Sunflower he believes he and his family were racially profiled because the large check came from someone with his name and not someone named “James or Robert.”

“Let’s assume I made a mistake and gave them a bad check,” Ali said. “Why would they arrest my wife and daughter?”

Ali, who along with his wife and children are American citizens, lived in Wichita from 1998 to 2008, and was returning to get his doctorate in engineering from Wichita State, where his eldest son is a freshman. He said the arrest marked his first time feeling unwelcome in the Kansas City.

“I would expect this in the 1950s,” Ali said. “Not now.”

Externalities and “alternative fact

imageExternalities and “alternative fact”…

Inherent in this title is the presumption you know what an “externality” is…?    And moreover you know precisely what an “alternative fact”…is..?

‘Externality” ... An externality is a consequence of any economic activity experienced by unrelated third parties; it can be either positive or negative.   For example, pollution emitted by a factory that spoils the surrounding environment and affects the health of nearby residents is an example of a negative externality. Or the effect of a well-educated labor force on the productivity of a company is an example of a positive externality…

 

…”Alternative fact”…  "Alternative facts" is a phrase used by U.S. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway during a Meet the Press interview on January 22, 2017, in which she defended White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s false statement about the attendance numbers of Donald Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States. When pressed during the interview with Chuck Todd to explain why Spicer "utter[ed] a provable falsehood", Conway stated that Spicer was giving "alternative facts". Todd responded, "Look, alternative facts are not facts. They’re falsehoods." …  Conway’s use of the phrase "alternative facts" to describe demonstrable falsehoods was widely mocked on social media and sharply criticized by journalists and media organizations, including Dan Rather, Jill Abramson, and the Public Relations Society of America. The phrase was extensively described as Orwellian. Within four days of the interview, sales of the book 1984 had increased by 9,500%, which The New York Times and others attributed to Conway’s use of the phrase, making it the number-one bestseller on Amazon.com.    Conway later defended her choice of words, defining "alternative facts" as "additional facts and alternative information".

 

…One can rightly question whether there is any legitimate correlation between an externality and an alternative fact…?

 

…Examples of what many perceive as negative externalities… Light pollution, Air pollution , Anthropogenic climate change, Water pollution, Systemic risks, Industrial farm animal production, depletion of the stock of fish in the ocean due to overfishing, cost of storing nuclear waste.   Conversely, the costs of managing the long term risks of disposal of chemicals, which may remain hazardous on similar time scales, Noise pollution, Sleep deprivation, Antibiotic resistance, caused by increased usage of antibiotics, Passive smoking, Traffic congestion, Price increases called pecuniary externalities" and are distinguished from "real externalities" or "technological externalities".  Pecuniary externalities appear to be externalities, but occur within the market mechanism and are not considered to be a source of market failure or inefficiency, although they may still result in substantial harm to others

…A positive externality (also called "external benefit" or "external economy" or "beneficial externality") is the positive effect an activity imposes on an unrelated third party

Examples of positive production externalities include:  A beekeeper who keeps the bees for their honey. A side effect or externality associated with such activity is the pollination of surrounding crops by the bees. The value generated by the pollination may be more important than the value of the harvested honey.

The construction and operation of an airport. This will benefit local businesses, because of the increased accessibility.

An industrial company providing first aid classes for employees to increase on the job safety. This may also save lives outside the factory.

Examples of positive consumption externalities include:  An individual who maintains an attractive house may confer benefits to neighbors in the form of increased market values for their properties.

Homeowners who purchase private fire protection services provide a positive externality to neighboring properties, which are less at risk of the protected neighbor’s fire spreading to their (unprotected) house.

The existence or management of externalities may give rise to political or legal conflicts.[citation needed]   Collective solutions or public policies are implemented to regulate activities with positive or negative externalities.

 

…It strikes me there is an inescapable unalterable connection between any externality and the now TRUMP sanctioned term…alternative fact

 

…That the term  CLIMAE CHANGE is not permitted in any form by Trump administration clouds and significantly alters  who and/or what is responsible for the increasing catastrophic weather events experienced worldwide…

 

That one can at any point interject what is sanctioned by “current authority” as viable “alternative fact” creates chaos, disbelief, delusion…

 

…This acceptance of sanctioned “alternative fact” creates an environment wherein there are NO negative externalities …and believing that a negative externality exists likely will lead to ones incarceration…

 

Is this the America in which we choose to swear our allegiance…???
