It Takes a Village to Kill A Cop — R.I.P. Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos

These are officers Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos:


They were assassinated in cold blood by an anti-cop protester in Bedford-Stuyvesant today.

Earlier in the week, protesters including Eric Linsker, a CUNY poetry professor, attacked police by trying to throw a garbage pail down on them, then kicked and stomped two police officers.  Linsker ought to be tried for attempted murder.  His poetry sucks too, but you don’t need to be competent to succeed in the academic humanities today: what you need to do is demonstrate the appropriate level of hatred against the appropriate scapegoats.  Bad poet Linsker got a job teaching poetry at the taxpayers’ expense because his bad poetry is about killing cops.  It takes a village to kill a cop, and academicians like Linsker are the idiot troubadours of that village.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama and Eric Holder, along with professors associated with Harvard School of Law, may be preparing to help pardon another cop-killer, Assata Shakur (JoAnne Chesimard).

Shakur is responsible for the murders of several cops.  In 1971, she ordered the murder of a random white cop in Atlanta, and her followers went out and killed the first white cop they found: James Richard Greene.  The 26-year old Atlanta cop was gunned down at random for no reason other than being white and a cop.  He was eating breakfast at the intersection of Boulevard and Memorial Drive in Atlanta when he was murdered.

I lived within blocks of that intersection for 20 years.  The intersection lies in civil rights icon John Lewis’ district.  But Lewis is not really a civil rights leader anymore because he does not support civil rights or human rights for everyone.  If he did, he would treat the racist political murders of police in New York City — and in his district — as civil rights violations more severe and noteworthy than what happened to him.  He was beaten, once, but he survived.

If John Lewis really opposed race murder, he would memorialize the sacrifice of James Richard Greene.  He would advocate for the murdered cop to be honored with an historical marker, at least.  But instead, Lewis sides with the virulent anti-cop lynch mob.  It takes a village to kill a cop, and John Lewis is a politician in that village.

If you went and spoke to the well-off hipsters who live in the area of Greene’s murder today, I believe nine out of ten of them would express solidarity with the cop-killers and at best vague discomfort or (more likely) jubilation at the mention of murdering a cop.  The Occupy movement demonstrated their jubilation at killing cops repeatedly.  It takes lots of idiots to populate the village of killing cops.

Shakur’s attorney, Soffiyah Elijah, was honored with a high post at Harvard Law — not because she is accomplished in any other way but because she supports the murder of cops.  She is even an apologist for Castro’s prisons.  This sort of garbage is what passes for legal scholarship at our Ivy League schools — advocating cop killing is a stepping-stone to a successful career at Harvard Law.  It takes a village to kill a cop, and Harvard Law is the barrister of that village.

The Obamas are close to another Assata Shakur supporter — the rap artist Common.  Common is famous as a “politically relevant” artist because he sings songs celebrating Assata Shakur’s cop-killing, and the Obamas invited him to the White House to celebrate that music — not despite his pro-cop killer stance but because of it.  The Obamas are the aristocracy of the village that supports killing cops.

On the week Barack Obama and Eric Holder held the infamous “beer summit” to scapegoat a police officer for being white and doing his job, several cops were murdered.  Obama and Holder could have used the “beer summit” to honor or at least mention these murdered police, but they didn’t, of course.  Murdered police weren’t important to them on that day: what was important was the opportunity to ritually abuse a cop for the color of his skin.  Holder has also, of course, been instrumental in acquiring pardons for other cop-killers and terrorists.

Eric Holder is the law in the village that supports killing cops.

The executive branch of our government is filthy with people who support cop-killing.  It is time to call this bunch the name they deserve.  They are a lynch mob.  They are the first lynch mob to control the White House since Woodrow Wilson approvingly screened Birth of a Nation at the White House in 1915.  100 years later, all that’s changed is the target.

It is time for decent people to come together and hold a march on Washington showing solidarity for the humanity and human rights of cops.  We need a pro-cop, anti-lynching-of-cops movement.

Sad that any civilized nation would need such a thing.

  1. the left is all about projection. they call conservatives nazis because they themselves are not only totalitarian but savagely anti-Semitic. they call those who merely do not agree with them racists because they themselves treat people of color like disgruntled, dim babies they opt to condescend to and manipulate to their purposes. they call successful people greedy yet collectively covet the fruits of that success- fruits they will themselves steal away, giving a pittance to ‘the people’, while living like princes and tsars on the take. they claim an aggressive bully with both a new, burgeoning adult record and a lengthy juvenile record who attacked a police officer and tried to take his service piece was hunted down and attacked by said officer, yet have a history themselves going back to the beginning of another century of targeting officers of the law with bombs and assassination.

    their cop killers of yore are all free and generally teaching in universities. those in exile or still in prison for their crimes are all ‘political prisoners’, heroes , feted, sending community leaders to their destiny as POTUS from their comfy upper middle class living rooms. writing books, giving interviews to media sources that are little more than PR firms for their curiously american mix of communism, rabid capitalism, extreme resentment of mummy and daddy/authority, and fatuous celebrity mongering.

    now i know exactly whom It will pardon on the way out the racist, oppressive confines of the white house. and while i sense a growing majority of people have had quite enough, knowing sociopaths, as ever, i dread their desperate, hate driven exit.

    having rather successfully assassinated the truth, as much as it can be known, all that’s left are human beings to take the part of the scapegoats in their marxist retread myth making soap opera of the absurd.

  2. Soffiya Elijah mistake´s: Cuba: a ruthless criminal code and one of the safest countries

    Its criminal code is any less of a guarantor thing. It has the figures of recidivism, dangerous, loitering, vagrancy and where stealing in the dark is an aggravating factor.

    Claudia Peiro

    ( Cuban jails are full, applies the death penalty, recidivism involves longer sentences and the age of criminal responsibility is 16 years. According to the UN, the island recorded the lowest crime rates in the region

    This is a “feel” safety confirmed by the many tourists that visit the island. The greatest risk is to be duped by a thirsty Cuban dollars with a “little story Uncle”, but it is an experience that is light years ahead of the risks involved in other Latin American countries, where the murder during robbery reaches record numbers.


    One might think that this is the result of a greater awareness -the new man, one of the flags of the Revolution castrista- or social achievements, but 510 prisoners per 100,000 inhabitants-the 6th highest in the world point rather the hardness of a Penal Code at the antipodes of garantismo: provides for the death penalty punishes strongly recidivism criminally attributable to youth from 16 years albeit with some menores- penalties, aggravating fixed for theft and such as theft takes place in “inhabited dwelling” or a “public transport”, assimilates drug possession with traffic, and maintains punishment of imprisonment for minor offenses or minor offenses: loitering, vagrancy and scandal public roads, among others.

    Crime suspects and preventive punishment

    “He who cultivates the Cannabis plant, known for marijuana (…), shall be punished by imprisonment of 3-8 years” (scheduled for the same dealer); “habitual drunkenness” the “drug addiction” and “antisocial behavior” are classified as “dangerous”, ie “special proclivity of a person to commit crimes, demonstrated by [conduct] in manifest contradiction with the norms of socialist morality “and can lead to measures of” pre-criminal “security; the backslider has no right to suspended sentence, can see his second conviction increased by 50% and, after serving sentence, may be subject to special surveillance.

    Specifically, the Cuban Penal Code is a showcase that goes hand in hand hard-sorrow of death by firing squad for crimes including murder, sabotage or piracy-up the starkest zero tolerance: if New York was applied to the slightest transgressions, in Cuba directly is repressed to the crime in a state of possibility, indeed the “dangerousness” enables measures such as “placement in care, psychiatric or detoxification institution”, “assignment skilled teaching, with or without imprisonment “or” monitoring by agencies of the National Revolutionary Police. ”

    Loitering or vagrancy are criminal offenses that involve garantismo questioned by social discrimination. In Cuba is directly assimilated to the propensity to commit crime. And in fact enable the authorities to a preventive punishment of this “antisocial behavior” in the form of forced treatment and rehabilitation.

    Besides, who has a connection with some of the above “antisocial”, may be subject to a “warning” by the public authority, by act to be signed to the police.

    Moreover, simple possession of drugs for consumption is punishable by six months to two years of imprisonment. And 3-8 years doctor prescribing drugs without therapeutic purpose.

    The age of criminal responsibility is 16 years, but up to 18 years sentence for the offender can be reduced to their minimum and maximum halfway. And for 18 to 20, in a third. Children under 20 are not liable to punishment.

    Punishment and monitoring the backslider

    In Argentina, where the majority of crimes are committed by people with a history, the garantismo promotes the elimination of recidivism with the argument that a person convicted of a crime and served his sentence can not again be punished by the same offense.

    Not think the Cubans. The Section 8 of the Cuban Penal Code is dedicated to relapse and recidivism, and states that the person punished for a second offense of the same kind will see their increased third sentence, and 50% if multirreincidente. If the crime is otherwise, the increase will be between one quarter and one third.

    Furthermore, “in any of these cases, the court may order (that) after serving the penalty of imprisonment, the offender becomes subject to special supervision of the organs of the National Revolutionary Police for a period of three to five years , and impose “obligations such as prohibition” to change residence without permission of the court “; “Not frequenting certain places” or “any other measures that would contribute to their re-education”.


    The death penalty by firing squad and from the 20s, applies in cases of murder and other crimes against state security, such as conspiracy, sabotage and piracy.

    In 2003, they were sentenced to death three citizens for kidnapping a passenger boat which sought to emigrate to the United States. Neither the intervention of Pope John Paul II could save them from the wall.

    Section 7, defined as “piracy” -with penalty of imprisonment of ten to twenty years or death’s take for example a ship and divert its route.

    Murder is punishable by 15-20 years imprisonment or death. It is clear that the maximum sentence is 20 years, but may extend to 30, precisely in the case of offenses for which the death sentence is also expected.

    Private property is respected

    Interestingly, for a system based on collective ownership, theft and robbery regime are punished severely and, above all, are notorious aggravating.

    For theft provides for imprisonment of six months to two years or fine or both, but the deprivation of liberty is 2-5 years if you act in a group, if committed “in inhabited dwelling”, if by outburst (no injuries); and further increases among 3 and 8 (eight) years “if the act is done with the participation of children”. One could for example receive multirreincidente 12.

    The concern of the authorities in the order makes the penalty for theft is of 2-5 years be “taking advantage of public gatherings or any other circumstances conducive” for the outburst. An article intended especially for Punga Fruit. And “if the act is done by a recidivist, the penalty is imprisonment from three to eight years.”

    Robbery with violence or intimidation is punishable by imprisonment of 3-8 years. And of 4-10 years if “the fact is running on a public transport vehicle or passengers” and 8 to 20 years when “the offense is committed in inhabited dwelling” or he are “serious injury” or “firearm or other “and that loss event” organized “or involving juvenile group is made up of one or more persons (en).

    Article 53 of the Code considered “aggravating circumstances” in general, the act organized group, the “participation of minors”, “cruelty” or “evil”, the “commit the act at night, or in the wilderness, or onsite with little traffic or obscure “, taking advantage of” the helplessness of the victim, or dependence or subordination to the offender “be drunk or stoned or commit the crime while serving a penalty or probation.

    The order comes first

    There in Cuba Figure Code “public scandal”, which is punishable by imprisonment from 3 months to 1 year or a fine for whom “importune another homosexual requirements”, “offends decency or morality with indecent exhibitions or any another act of public “or disseminate pornography scandal.

    No goodwill for criminal or antisocial behavior aimed at undermining order and state authority. For example there is the figure of contempt (by threats and insults to the authority, with sanction from 3 months to 1 year imprisonment and / or fines).

    In the chapter on Homeland Security, is expected to whom, “riotously and by express or tacit concert, using violence, disturb the socialist order or elections or referenda, or prevent compliance with a judgment, legal disposition or measure issued by the Government or by a civil or military authority (…) or refuse to obey them, or made demands, or reluctance to fulfill their duties “shall be punished with imprisonment from ten to twenty years or death.

    It is clear from the above that all anti-government demonstration or picket are forbidden in Cuba. Just in case, “punishment of imprisonment of three months to one year or a fine or both” is also planned for that “in public places, shows and numerous meetings, give cries of alarm, utters threats of a common danger or perform any other act intended to cause panic or tumult. ”

    The offense and disobedience to authority (officials, police) with penalties that may lead to deprivation of liberty (3-8 years) are punished.

    For officials there are “tough” bribery is punishable by a maximum of 15 years in prison.

    Prisons full

    There is a “corrective labor” as punishment, with internment. Read: labor camps.

    As for parole, the primary must meet half the penalty for that benefit and repeat three quarters.

    The escape attempt, whether it is collective, has a prison sentence of 4-10 years, besides the sentence is already being met.

    If there was an official complicity in the escape to it will fit to 3-8 years in prison. If it was just carelessness, there benevolence only be in 1-3 years. And of 4-10 years in prison for those who mutiny in prison.

    In June, the government amended by decree the Code and the Criminal Procedure does not so much according to soften but mainly to solve the problem of prison overcrowding.

    The changes, which took effect on October 1, allow, among other things, to the courts to impose fines instead of imprisonment if the crime in “social dangerousness” is evidenced scarce, and if the penalty provided for the offense in question does not exceed three years of imprisonment.

    It is hoped thereby relieving pressure on the 200 prisons, detention centers and labor camps of the Cuban prison system, where there is too high a density per square meter.

    Officially, about 57,000 inmates are recognized on the island. But according to the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation, the real figure is between 65,000 to 70,000 people.

  3. I hope you have drawn attention to this article on the Cuban penal law, as a practicing Catholic and Democrat I profoundly disagree with the Castro dictatorship but admit that the heavy hand work, Cuba has not committed the “garantistas” errors and achieved reduce crime at the slightest expression, Spain and USA should take example.

  4. Ms. Trent —

    Your passion for justice has not dimmed over the past few years, a period when I was not keeping up with your excellent posts.

    As always, the inequities and injustices you bring forward are egregious and infuriating to any thinking person. You heap well-deserved calumny upon those wrongheaded people who hate our peace officers. Please count me as one Atlantan who loves your work.
