Illegal And Immoral Manipulation

A Media With Ulterior Motives…

There is something radically wrong when a Police Chief with sterling credentials and extensive local ties can be forcibly replaced by someone from out of town from a different culture with questionable credentials and no local ties by a rogue press that intentionally rabble roused the Black community into a frenzy that threatens law and order.

Commenting on the travesty Sanford Commissioner Patty Mahany said, “”I want to know how you can take a man of Chief Lee’s impeccable character and experience … This is a man who has spent his life in law enforcement, 27 years with the sheriff’s department, he has absolutely no complaints in his personnel file, he has 85 letters of appreciation and commendation … and this is also the chief who would take a bullet for anyone in this room.   I am just devastated by this. I wouldn’t want to see this happen to anyone in this room.”

Before becoming Chief of Police for the city of Sanford, Florida Billy R. Lee was Director of the Center for Public Safety at Seminole State College.  He was born and raised in Sanford and before accepting the position he spent 27 years working in the Seminole County Sheriff’s office where before retirement he rose to the rank of Captain.  He has a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from University of Central Florida.  Lee was paid $102,000 a year.  He is White

Cecil Smith, Billy Lee’s replacement, was deputy Chief of Police in Elgin, Illinois.  He graduated from Columbia College (Location not specified – there are several.)   and has taken courses (no degrees listed) at other institutions.  He is Black has a White wife and according to the New York Times one of his goddaughters is a Lesbian.  Smith gets $114,000 yearly salary.

The incident that resulted in this ill-advised replacement was treated in the same questionable manner as the position of Police Chief.  Evidence taken at the time of Zimmerman’s arrest confirmed that he had been attacked and had cuts and abrasions on his head and grass on the back of his clothing. Chief Lee said that “by Florida Statutes if someone alleges self-defense the case must be forwarded to the State Attorney’s Office unless police have enough evidence to make an arrest and he believed arresting Zimmerman would have been a violation of his civil rights”. Chief Lee was fired by Sanford City Manager Norton Bonaparte who is Black.  Lee’s final statement was “I continue to stand by the work performed by the Sanford Police Department in this tragic shooting, which has been plagued by misrepresentations and false statements for interests other than justice.”

In order to properly understand the circumstances involved in this unfortunate incident both Blacks and Whites need to consider that the area Zimmerman was patrolling had been plagued with a number of thefts and robberies perpetrated by Black youth.  Both races must also consider documented crime statistics: Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent. Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black. Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery. Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.  See more statistics here.

More attention is paid to Black suspects than to Whites because Black suspects commit a major portion of the crimes.  Trayvon Martin seemed suspicious to George Zimmerman because he was an exact fit to the profile.  Statistically the chances of Zimmerman attacking Trayvon are 39 to 1.   Blacks may coast to victory by the illegitimate power of a malignant media but if they want to be taken seriously by society they need to clean up their act.

I have no great love for the Stanford police department.  My experience in paying an unnecessary traffic ticket was that they are imperious and vindictive.  Also I am no fan of the militarization of our local law enforcement or of their tendency to shoot first and ask questions later or their seeming impunity from punishment and from their clannish superiority to those who pay their salary.

Neither do I have any respect for the media.  There is a Marxist tendency for the media to purposely create strife.  The oligarchs that control the press in America have no real love for Black people. They are delighted to ignite a major conflict and happy to foster enough injustice to create resentment and anger.  The entire Zimmerman/Martin conflict was created by the media and is a free source of news and revenue for them.   If the verdict of the trial creates riots the lofty, monopolistic, news mavens will be delighted.

An acquittal of George Zimmerman will make millions of Blacks believe they have suffered an injustice. Tragically they may fall for the connivance of the media and react with violence.  Most Whites will consider it a just verdict but even if our despicable court system provides a just verdict the injustice perpetrated on former Police Chief Billy Lee and on George Zimmerman will never be rectified.

If George Zimmerman is found guilty a horrible injustice will have been accomplished by a profligate media with the complicity of millions of manipulated Blacks

We are living in a nation where a handful of powerful individuals wield a tremendous amount of power over society as well as over individual lives.  In a short span of about two weeks popular Chef Paula Deen has been hung out to dry over an exercise of free speech and opinion that every American should have a right to hold and express.  That the media is attempting to illegally restrict our right to free speech should awaken every citizen to the danger it poses.

It is tragic to live in a nation that suffers a monopoly news source with ulterior motives but even more tragic to watch a massive Christian population be taken in by this malicious mendacity.
