White Lives Matter Too


James Stuhlman

From the solidly Democratic City of Brotherly Love:

Police say an alleged teenage gunman has surrendered in connection with the murder of James Stuhlman, who was shot and killed while walking his dog in Philadelphia’s Overbrook section last week.

15-year-old Tyfine Hamilton turned himself in early Friday morning. Already in custody is Hamilton’s Overbrook High School classmate Brandon Smith, also 15, and a third boy who remains unnamed.

Both Hamilton and Smith are charged with murder, robbery and related charges.

The third boy, who is 14-years-old, is facing lesser charges and will be tried as a juvenile.

Police sources tell Action News that all three have confessed, and that they have a lead now on where the murder weapon is located.

It was just before 8:30 p.m. last Thursday when 51-year-old James Stuhlman was walking his dog on the 6400 block of Woodcrest Avenue.

That’s when police say he was approached by three juveniles attempting a robbery. Police say Stuhlman pleaded for his life, saying, “Please don’t shoot me. Please don’t shoot me.” But he was still shot once in the chest.

The suspects ran off, without taking any of Stuhlman’s belongings.

“Which makes this even more senseless, and even more troubling,” said Philadelphia Police Captain James Clark, “that nothing was taken at all and he lost his life.”

Barack Obama won’t be attending Stuhlman’s memorial service. Don’t expect Eric Holder to be announcing any federal investigations of this incident. Don’t hold your breath waiting for Al Sharpton to arrive in Philly and start leading protest marches. Other than possibly Fox News you won’t be seeing this story on the evening news unless you live in the local area. Nobody will be looting any convenience stores because of this.

The article doesn’t mention Stuhlman’s race or show his picture. I had to google his name to find the one up above.

Meanwhile, from CNN:

An African-American man is found hanging from a tree in the Mississippi woods with bedsheets around his neck attached to a limb 15 feet above the ground. There’s no chair in sight. His feet are 2 to 3 feet off the ground. His hands are not bound.

Is this a suicide? Or is it a lynching — a shadow from the South’s history of racial violence re-emerging?

Those were the big questions Friday, one day after authorities found a man’s body with bedsheets around his neck in Port Gibson, a small town of just over 1,500 people in rural Claiborne County, about 60 miles southwest of Jackson, the state capital.

Evidence collected so far doesn’t suggest foul play in the death, law enforcement officials said. For that reason, suicide is the early theory as the likely manner of death, the officials said.

Claiborne County Sheriff Marvin Lucas on Friday identified the man as Otis Byrd. Even though authorities have confirmed his name, they still have a lot of work ahead to figure out how Byrd died and who is responsible.


Mississippi NAACP chapter President Derrick Johnson issued a statement calling on “federal authorities to immediately investigate the hanging death of Mr. Otis Byrd.”

The FBI already is looking into any federal civil rights violations and has a forensics team on the scene. The U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi are also investigating, according to a spokeswoman for the Justice Department.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation also is investigating.

The last recorded racial lynching in the United States took place in Alabama 34 years ago yesterday. Three KKK members were convicted of the crime. One was executed and the other two are serving life in prison. With the help of the SPLC the victims mother sued the KKK and won a $7 million judgment.

But wait! There’s more!

A family member who did not want to be identified said Byrd was not acting out of the ordinary in the days before he went missing.

He went to church, he worked and occasionally ventured to a casino, according to the family member, who described Byrd as a “good, hardworking man.”

Byrd had been in prison. He was convicted in 1980 of murdering a woman, but was paroled in 2006, according to the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

        In this case the headline was enough – no way the article was gonna get better.

          • Constance says:

            I doubt it. Porn only appeals to some people and there seems to be a lot of women who will participate in dirty picture activity online for free which puts the people who want to monetize it at a disadvantage . Shopping has to be the major money maker on the internet.

  3. Lulu says:

    CNN left out the part about Mr Byrd having trouble keeping a job and that the last place he was seen alive was in a casino. Spending over twenty years in prison for murder also doesn’t help make a successful life.

    • Somebody says:

      Yep I think if there was foul play, most likely his race had absolutely nothing to do with it. The whole casino thing immediately raised red flags………ooooh that’s probably racist because most likely he was at an Indian casino…….sorry a Native American casino.

      It makes you wonder if the Persians spit in his face, punched him in the gut, and dumped dog poo on his head, IN PUBLIC, if John Kerry would go on saying how wonderful Iran is and they are making progress. Diplomacy is not about eating shit.

      • Somebody says:

        The delusion coming from this administration scares the shit out of me. Mainly because I don’t think anybody could possibly be that stupid. So if they’re not that stupid and deluded then what gives?? Seriously is this all about some ego thing of having a legacy at all costs or is this something much more dark and sinister? Is this collusion? What is it? Whatever it is the well being of this country and its citizens doesn’t seem factor into it. I’ve never been one for conspiracy theories, but damn! As voter mom said yesterday, the longer this administration stays in power, the more perfectly plausible some of those theories look.

      • Constance says:

        I think Kerry has the fantasy that when the Obot dems drive Hillary out he will step in as the Grand Daddy who solves the worlds problems and be the Dem nominee again. He’s only two years older than Hillary and the rest of the old farts on the Dem bench.

    Israel: Beware of Obama

    • Lulu says:

      I think everyone but the Labor and Arab party voters already figured this out. Bronco’s disapproval numbers in Israel are 70% and like fools the White House ignored this fact when they sent over their crack team of rabble-rousers, liars, poll riggers, and election cheats. Likud won in areas that they had NEVER won before. Labor is dumbfounded and humiliated. It reminds me of November 2014 here.

      • 1539days says:

        Like everything else, the administration was trying to keep Obama’s influence in the election on the down low. At least now I know why Buzzfeed, the home of cat videos, ran this out of place piece last week about Israelis turning away from Netanyahu.

      • Underwhelmed says:

        THere were Obama operatives involved in one of our recent elections, too. That didn’t work either. Scum. Also, when are the American people going to rise up against this law-breaking, contemptuous administration? Seriously?????

          Americans are too comfortable. They will just complain and do nothing.

            Protest organizers get their money from people like Soros, or the Unions. They get the buses and pay their protesters. Anarchists do this for a living.

            Most of us are hard-working and choose not to use our precious vacation time protesting. I protested a few times, but I don’t rearrange my schedule to do this.

            You’re right, we’re comfortable, so we’ll just complain anonymously on line. i quit F/B because I was being attacked by cousins. It wasn’t pretty.

            I wonder what the tipping point will be for us to take to the streets?

      Many years ago, I got an education grant under a program designed to help people get skills to compete with H1-B visa workers. I lost my job in the first place because my replacement got a subsidy for being a displaced worker due to foreign competition. This is the insanity. The government allows workers from other countries because some employer claims they can’t find anyone. When reality hits and employees are fired because they won’t work for nothing, the government then throws money at workers.

      • 49erDweet says:

        This has been a ripoff since FDR’s administration. “Bracero’s” came here in 1942 to replace field workers who were supposedly “needed” for the war effort. American field workers were then fired and forced to move from company housing. and replaced with “braceros” who worked for half price. Displaced Americans sometimes found jobs in defense plants, sometimes in other local businesses and sometimes just didn’t work anymore. The big clue came when the war was over but the “bracero;s” kept coming. I saw who crews of American cotton pickers, a hard job, fired overnight because a bracero crew was suddenly made available. Ripoff.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          Cotton is probably responsible for more abusive labor practices than any other crop ever raised by man. Slavery was only one of those abusive practices.

          • 49erDweet says:

            You got that right. It’s all greed. It lasts unspoiled in the fields protected by the bolls until the market price and cost of labor to pick it are ideal….for the grower.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            Slavery and sharecropping were how it was grown and picked. The plant is labor intensive and unpleasant to handle and it gets harvested in the heat of summer.

            Eli Whitney figured out how to remove the stems, seeds leaves and other stuff, but then it goes to textile mills where it is converted into cloth and thread. Then it goes to clothing factories.

            Some of the earliest labor abuses took place in those mills and factories. Until the 20th Century they were hellholes and many used child labor.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            The invention of the mechanical cotton harvester ended sharecropping.

          • 49erDweet says:

            It was the sharecropping – as unfair and one sided as it was – that killed the American pickers, mostly winos and entire homeless families, kids and all, and brought in young males who would work hard for an hourly wage, healthy, eager braceros. Crops were picked in less than half the time. And far cheaper. That did it.

          • cynic says:

            The hellholes moved to Haiti, India, etc.

            Wikileaks revealed the ugly truth:

            “Contractors for Fruit of the Loom, Hanes and Levi’s worked in close concert with the US Embassy when they aggressively moved to block a minimum wage increase for Haitian assembly zone workers, the lowest-paid in the hemisphere…..”
            The factory owners told the Haitian Parliament that they were willing to give workers a 9-cents-per-hour pay increase to 31 cents per hour to make T-shirts, bras and underwear for US clothing giants like Dockers and Nautica.
            But the factory owners refused to pay 62 cents per hour, or $5 per day, as a measure unanimously passed by the Haitian Parliament in June 2009 would have mandated. And they had the vigorous backing of the US Agency for International Development and the US Embassy when they took that stand.

          “the way the article is worded” It is worded that way to sway public opinion.

          Unfortunately, the GOPE won’t let Cruz win. I’m acquainted with someone high up in the ranks of Republican politics in IL. I gave up my F/B acct., but took a peek at her page via my hubby’s acct. She attacked Cruz today (and has, in the past).

          Looking back at prior posts, she hasn’t posted anything about Walker. It’s been nothing but positive things about Bush.

        • cynic says:

          “Ted Cruz has made quite an impression in just three months in the Senate. Like Marco Rubio, he is the son of a Cuban exile. He is a extraordinarily talented guy. Unlike Barack Obama, he had a stellar record both in academia and in the practice of law: he was national debating champion, graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, clerked for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, was named by American Lawyer magazine as one of the 50 Best Litigators under 45 in America, served as Solicitor General of the State of Texas and authored more than 80 briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court. As a law student, Cruz was described by Professor Alan Dershowitz as “off the charts brilliant.” He was elected to the Senate last year in what the Washington Post called “the biggest upset of 2012 . . . a true grassroots victory against very long odds.” So it is not surprising that, just as Cruz has quickly become a hero on the right, the Democratic Party is out to destroy him.”

      • leslie says:

        I broke all the rules last Friday at work. I stated that I don’t like the democrats who are in power and that I like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. At first the silence was deafening. Then some questions that I responded to by saying, “They seem to respect the rule of law. They seem to uphold the Constitution. They appear to have similar beliefs that I have.” The looks around the table, the rolling eyes (I called them on it) , the shrugs…. (I work for the state of IL.) I’m retiring soon. I figure I’m entitled now.

        • leslie says:

          It actually started when I referred to one of the men as “Marco”. I then apologized saying that he resembled Marco Rubio and that I had listened to a speech of his the previous night. Someone else said “Ugh. He is my parents’ senator and they love him. I can’t stand him.” I then said that I liked him and wondered what my colleague found so distasteful. “He’s a Republican”, she said.. I then said.”I used to feel the same way about Republicans until I wised up. I don’t trust any political party to do what is right for the people now. Now I really look at who politicians are, what they’ve done and what they stand for (by their actions).”
          Yes. Retirement is doing what some people say aging does. It’s lowering my inhibitions and allowing me to say what I want – within reason. June can’t come soon enough.

            When my Democratic friends tell me that their kids can’t wait to get out of IL, I ask them why. We all know the reason. It’s being run into the ground. People are leaving, unemployment is going up in our County, property taxes are horrendous, there’s no money for pensions, etc.

            Then I explain that it’s a parent’s job to point out who has run this state into the toilet. Call it a teachable moment. If you think the Govt. should take care of all our problems, be prepared to pay for it.

    from the link. 😆

    because it subtly divides people into “makers and takers.”

    The word? “Taxpayer.”

    The word she believes should be used instead? “People.”

    It’s worthwhile to compare these usages, because the terms are, in a sense, rival ideas. While “people” designates the broadest possible public as the subject of a political project, “taxpayer” advances a considerably narrower vision—and that’s why we should eliminate it from political rhetoric and punditry.

It is important to note that voters weren’t asked about any specific policies they wanted reversed. Far more troubling for Obama’s thoughts about his legacy, voters simply generally want to scrap his policies.. ” http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/03/22/cnn-poll-voters-ideal-2016-candidate-an-anti-obama/

      Back in the days when we had a Constitution, only people with property paid taxes. They were also the only people who could vote. The idea behind that was simple. If you had to give your money to the government, you were more likely to vote for reasonable expenditures. If people who paid no taxes voted, well, they could go for any expense with no consequences. We used to think that idea was crazy.

    Shocking Lack of Respect
    Posted by John Cole +0 at 3:18 pm Mar 22 2015

    This is appalling:

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., ripped President Barack Obama on Sunday over the administration’s response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s election victory.

    “The president should get over it,” McCain said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Get over it — get over your temper tantrum, Mr. President. It’s time we work together with our Israeli friends and try to stem this tide of ISIS and Iranian movement throughout the region.”

    Last week, Obama said that he is concerned about Netanyahu’s comments during the campaign opposing the creation of a Palestinian state.

    “We continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel,” Obama told the Huffington Post Friday. “Given his statements prior to the election, it is going to be hard to find a path where people are seriously believing that negotiations are possible.

    “We take him at his word when he said that it wouldn’t happen during his prime ministership,” the president continued. “So that’s why we’ve got to evaluate what other options are available to make sure that we don’t see a chaotic situation in the region.”

    “The least of your problems are what Bibi Netanyahu said in a political campaign,” McCain said Sunday. “I think the president maybe shouldn’t like it, but thousands are being slaughtered by ISIS. The Iranians have taken over the major capitols of Lebanon, Syria, Beirut and Baghdad. It pales in significance to the situation which continues to erode throughout the Middle East, and it puts America at risk. … The president has his priorities so screwed up that it’s unbelievable.”

    McCain said Obama is letting his personal problems with Netanyahu get in the way of policy.

    “Either that or he’s delusional. I’m not sure which,” he said.

    If you think that any member of Congress would EVER say this about any other President, you have lost your mind. This is as racist as it gets, and McCain should know it and probably does. Rather than acknowledge Bibi’s lies and the fact that it does create diplomatic problems, McCain chooses instead to infantalize the President, and the only reason he is doing so is because Obama is black. Period. End of story. The only thing he didn’t do was add “boy” to the end of the temper tantrum remark. And CNN’s Gloria Borger didn’t so much as flinch.

    And for McCain, the man of legendary temper, to accuse anyone else of having a temper tantrum, is just priceless.

    Seriously, fuck these republican scumbags.

    • lizzy says:

      I think Obama is crazy enough that he should be removed from office because he can’t perform his duties. He is delusional and seems completely out of touch with reality. He is incapable of continuing to serve. What is required to remove him from office for health reasons?

    Been working very hard these past few years on an inter-racial screenplay called Rockinitis, set in Pittsburgh in 1959. About two teenage singers, a white boy and black girl who fall in love and realize that their only way to make it together is in a song. Finally got the song finished last week and thought I’d share it with you all. It’s called The Spin, written by myself and a young musician from South Florida and sung by two really talented singers also from around here. Sometimes you have to wait for the right time…

    Today’s Republicans: Traitors Or Psychopaths?
    Posted by Tom Levenson at 7:20 pm Mar 22 2015

    On the treason side, I give you Stephen King, who is, of course, of interest to any GOP presidential aspirant as a major figure (FSM save the Republic!) in first-in-the-nation-caucus-state Iowa:

    “…here is what [one] thing that I don’t understand, I don’t understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president…”

    Speaking as a Jewish-American who thinks Netanyahu is a corrupt, power-for-power’s sake bigoted hack whose policies are a clear and present danger to Israel, let me first say to Representative King:

    Fuck you.

    With that reasoned and considered reply out of the way, let’s parse this.

    “I don’t understand”

    Considering the speaker, that clause doesn’t narrow it down very much.

    “how Jews in America”

    Not, notice, “American Jews.” This line is the tell, the crack that lets you see into what smells to me like a very familiar trope of anti-Semitism. I don’t want to be paranoid, but King’s plain text tells you he sees within America a group defined by an affiliation, an bond of connection to a country or a cause that is not native to their home. We are Jews sojourning in America, and it may come to pass (how appropriate for the season!) that there will arise in Washington a King who knows not Moses. Or so this false prophet suggests.

    “Democrats first and Jewish second.”

    First,carnally know you again, King. I for one, am a Democrat at least in part because of my Jewish education. Specifically, Isaiah 58 v. 1-12. I may have lost any belief in a sky god — but tikkun olam* and that strand of the Jewish tradition remains a touchstone.

    But more seriously, look at what King does here: he assumes a reflexive Jewish duty of allegiance to a political movement in Israel he conflates with Israel as a whole (not as bad an error I as I would wish right now, alas), which cannot be met as a member of the Democratic party.

    “along the line of just following their president…”

    Well, intercourse you some more, Congressman, sideways, with an oxidized farm implement. Barack Hussein Obama is America’s president. Yours too. Suck on it.

    Diving a little deeper, what strikes me is the combination of hostility to Jews — American Jews — and the smell of treachery. We U.S. born and bound remnants of the Kingdom of Judea are failing Rep. King. We are unsatisfactory to him in the failure of our allegiance to a foreign power. He here explicitly advocates Jews in America form a fifth column for Israel. Failing to do so, we are to him twice the “other” — Democrats and the wrong kind of Jewish.

    This is your brain on Koolaid.

            I wrote him a poem :
            JohnC is in high dudgeon
            with lots of pearl clutchin
            He expresses his annoyance
            with much indignation.
            He is miffed tiffed and piqued
            Vexed nettled and irked,
            provoked to hold much grudgeon
            He acts as judge and jury
            spews forth his fury
            and jumps to conclusions
            calls anyone in sight
            the basest of racist
            with ire and high drama
            because someone talked back
            to Obama

            I had to click on that link just to see who the hell wrote it. I read some comments then came to this one;
            One of the very few honest and competent political news organizations in the country is calling it what it is:

            Anti-Semitic Congressman Lashes Out Again
            TALKING POINTS MEMO – one of the very few ……. I almost puked on my keyboard.

    A very good read by Alan Dershowitz:

    I posted earlier a link about Ted Cruz. Dershowitz calls him “off the charts brilliant”. Now, Dershowitz explains the role of the President very clearly.

    I see a link between this article and Ted making this early announcement. This administration is usurping it’s power. Ted will be given the media attention with this announcement, and now it’s up to him to ‘teach’ Americans what the President can and cannot do.
