It’s not like a lynching, or what happened to Matthew Shepard.
Well, actually it is just like lynching, and it precisely like what they did to Matthew Shepard, only three times, and using fire.
But whoever did it just did it to women so Eric Holder and Elena Kagan made sure, in 1997 and at the behest of Bill Clinton and an alphabet soup of activists, that crimes like this don’t count as hate. And non-hate rape-torture-murder is not as bad as hate, as Holder told Congress — “don’t let anyone tell you hate crimes aren’t worse,” he shouted, “they are worse!”
So, according to our nation’s highest law enforcement officer, this is a less-worse-not-nearly-as-bad kidnapping, torture, sexually violating, and burning alive thing. None of the neighbors being interviewed seem to agree:
DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are wondering if they have a serial attacker on their hands after a third woman’s burned body was found on the west side.
The woman’s body was discovered Saturday morning inside a home at the Mildred Smith Manor II apartment complex in the 1300 block of Forest Avenue, between Trumbull Street and the Lodge Freeway.
Fire Chief Jack Wiley said the grim discovery was made after firefighters extinguished a small blaze at the complex.
“It’s a young lady, I think, I’m not sure. All I could see was the leg and it looked like the leg of a lady than more of a man. So, I’m not sure yet,” he said.
Wiley said it’s too soon to tell if the woman, who hasn’t yet been identified, was murdered.
Women do not count as much as gays, or minorities, or Muslim people, or other people who do count. Get it?
There are three women now — tortured, violated, set on fire. Where is the Department of Justice? Still trying to figure out if they can charge George Zimmerman with something. Women don’t matter; especially, women victims of serial killers don’t matter, because Elena Kagan, the ADL, and Eric Holder didn’t want to muss up the hate crime statistics with the quantities of dead women who tend to accumulate:
Police say it’s the third case in recent weeks where a woman has been set on fire and left for dead. However, investigators aren’t yet sure if the cases are connected. In late July, two women were found just miles apart in vacant fields – both severely beaten and without any clothing.
The first woman was found around 5:50 a.m. July 26 in the 12800 block of Eaton, near Meyers Road and Lyndon Street. Police say the 37-year-old was physically assaulted and had burn marks on her body. She was in critical condition after the attack, but is now in stable condition.
Just over 24 hours later, the second woman was found around 7 a.m. July 27 at Elmira and Iris Streets, near Plymouth and Meyers roads. Police say the woman, believed to be in her 20s to 30s, was physically and possible sexually assaulted. She was listed as unconscious and in critical condition after the attack. Her current condition is unknown.
Of course the media’s in collusion with those who don’t want the following question asked:
Exactly how many women do you have to snatch off the streets, violate, torture and set on fire before someone admits it’s a hate crime?
They’re keeping real quiet. Thanks for getting the memo, guys. Here are some of the journalists studiously not asking that question:
Michael Walsh, New York Daily News
Gina Damron, Detroit Free Press (heck, let’s include the whole FREEP staff — they’ve barely covered it)
The Whole AP
The New York Times hasn’t weighed in at all: they’re too busy blaming taxpayers for not bailing Detroit out again.
How about the activists?
Southern Poverty Law Center? Nope. They are, however, reassuring the world that that hate crime in California where Kassim Al Himidi claimed prejudiced Americans broke into his house and murdered his wife in an anti-Muslim hate crime just turned out to be Kassim Al Himidi killing his wife and blaming it on prejudiced Americans. Thank goodness it wasn’t hate.
National Organization For Women? Nah. They’ll warm a bit if the women all turn out to be gay and the attackers are the last three Klansmen blogging in a basement in Lansing. Otherwise, have at, woman-killers. Plus they’re super-busy demanding justice for Trayvon Martin and continuing to complain about sexist Superbowl Ads.
The NOW has always been terrible on violence against women. They didn’t even want to include it in their first mission statement. Some feminist studies Grrl Friday should take a stab at researching that.
Human Rights Council? Are you kidding? As far as we know, these are heterosexual women, not people.
The same thing happened in Detroit in 2011: two burned bodies were found on Christmas day, two others a week earlier. I can’t find anything else on that case: four women burned beyond recognition. Here’s another question we should be asking: how did some lives become so cheap to the government?
