assault two

13 times Donald Trump could have said "stop it" to bias-fueled violence, but chose not to

1. In Richmond, California, a white man began shouting at Muslims leaving a mosque after prayer services on Dec. 4 and shouted, “I’m going to kill you all.” The man, who later pled guilty to making terrorist threats and was sentenced to 90 days in jail with three years probation, made several Facebook posts before the attack praising Trump.  (src)

2. During a basketball game at Andrean High School in Merrillville, Indiana, students held up a poster of Donald Trump’s face and chanted, “Build a wall,” at Latino basketball players on Feb. 27. (src)

3. A white Trump supporter assaulted two male Wichita State University students — a Muslim American and a Latino — at a local Kwik shop. He reportedly began chanting “Trump! Trump! Trump!” Before driving off, the attacker added, “Make America great again! You guys are the losers! You guys, we’ll throw you over the wall!"  (src)

4. At Beloit Memorial High School in Beloit, Wisconsin, on April 8, black and Latino soccer players walked off the field when opposing fans chanted, "Donald Trump, build that wall!” (src)

5. A 20-year-old black man was visiting his elderly grandfather in Cleveland, Ohio, on June 3 when a white neighbor threatened the pair with a knife.

6. A black father of three was verbally and physically assaulted by a white hospital worker when she saw him talk to a white mother with reportedly biracial-looking children.

7. While riding a New York City subway, two hijab-wearing Muslim women were berated by a white man who told them to “go back home and take their bombs with them.” He also reportedly said “Donald Trump is right,” in reference to the president-elect’s anti-Muslim rhetoric. (src)

Bite Marks Trap A Killer

When serial killer Ted Bundy broke into a Chi Omega sorority house and brutally assaulted two students, he left behind a damning piece of evidence that would eventually send him to the electric chair.

Bite marks on Lisa Levy’s buttocks were carefully photographed and measured during autopsy, and forensic odontologist Dr Richard Souviron noticed the unusual set of the offenders lower incisors; they were sharply angled out of line with the rest of the teeth, and they left a distinct mark on the dead womans skin. Souviron realised this unique feature could trap the vicious killer, and alerted police departments around the country to the bite pattern, hoping to find a match.

It worked. Officials in Utah matched the teeth impression from the victim to Ted Bundy, who had escaped custody some time before. When Bundy was eventually caught and put on trial, prosecutors successfully proved he could have been the only man who left the bite marks on Lisa Levy. This damning evidence totally demolished Bundy’s assertion he was innocent, and he was sentenced to death.

December 7th 1941: Attack on Pearl Harbor

On this day in 1941, just before 8 am, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched an attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After decades of escalating tensions, primarily over Japanese aggression against China, and Japanese anger over American trade sanctions, the Japanese strike on America’s Pacific Fleet still came as a surprise. In a two hour assault, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes dropped bombs and torpedoes which killed around 2,400 American soldiers and sailors, while 20 naval vessels and 200 planes were destroyed. In contrast, the Japanese suffered just 64 fatalities. The Pearl Harbor attacks were part of a larger, co-ordinated assault against American territories in Guam and the Philippines, and parts of the British Empire. While the strike certainly damaged the Pacific Fleet, vitally important aircraft carriers were spared as they were away from the base, and shipyards remained intact, allowing for swift rebuilding. The next day, following a powerful speech, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan. The legislature passed the war measure with only one dissenting vote, cast by pacifist Representative Jeannette Rankin of Montana. America’s declaration of war was immediately followed by further declarations by Japan’s Axis allies Germany and Italy against the United States. Two years in, despite initial isolationist neutrality, America was now involved in the Second World War. The entrance of the United States into the war marked a pivotal turning point in one of the bloodiest wars in human history, as the full might of the American military joined the Allied cause against the forces of Nazi Germany, fascist Italy, and imperial Japan.

“Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”

Assisted by his mother, Sarah, and a teenage nephew by the name of Stanford Clark, Gordon Northcott abducted children and kept them prisoner at his isolated ranch in Riverside County, California, where he, and his clients, molested them. Once he was done with the children, he would kill them and then bury their bodies in the surrounding desert. In February 1928, the decapitated body of a young boy was discovered in a ditch near Puent. Two months prior to this discovery, two brothers aged eight and ten went missing. They were last seen with Northcott at a boys’ club. Authorities went to Northcott’s home and discovered that he had fled to Canada. The home was searched and authorities found the missing head of the young boy who had been found earlier. Stanford Clark was taken in for questioning and confessed that Northcott had sexually assaulted the two brothers before brutally beating them to death. Sarah Northcott confessed that she had participated in one of the murders. Gordon was tracked down and extradited to California where he was charged with just three murders although it is believed that he may have killed as many as twenty children. Sarah Northcott was sentenced to life imprisonment. Stanford Clark agreed to turn state’s evidence against his uncle, Gordon Northcott, and Gordon was sentenced to hang. The sentence was carried out on 2 October, 1930, when Gordon was 23-years-old.

Just off the beach, landing craft await their chance at the unloading area while small boats from the transports ply back and forth bring assault troops and returning wounded for treatment. Further out, the transports themselves faintly along the horizon, the protective screen of destroyers, destroyer escorts and cruisers can be seen. On the island, Marine tanks can be spotted moving through the rough terrain toward the first airfield at left.”

Jay-Z, photographed in handcuffs outside the NYPD’s Midtown South precinct after he had turned himself in and was arrested on December 3, 1999.

The previous night, while attending a release party for Q-Tip’s debut solo album Amplified at Manhattan’s Kit Kat Klub, Hov allegedly stabbed record executive Lance “Un” Rivera in the stomach and the back. The rumor was that rampant bootlegging of his upcoming album Vol. 3… Life and Times of S. Carter was traced back to Rivera. The attack happened less than two hours after he had performed six songs from the album at a music industry listening party at the Irving Plaza.

Hov was charged with two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault. He was arraigned at 2:30 AM and freed after posting a $50,000 bail. Roc-a-Fella Records and Def Jam Records released a statement saying: “Jay-Z absolutely denies any allegations that he was involved in the incident.”

In October 2001 Hov pleaded guilty to a charge of third-degree assault, and was sentenced to three years probation on December 6. During that time he was not permitted to leave New York without his probation officer’s permission. Before the plea, he was facing up to 15 years in jail on charges of felony assault in the second degree if found guilty at trial. Rivera had drafted a civil suit against Jay following his arrest, but didn’t file it after they settled the matter out of court for between $500,000 to $1 million.

@ the grown men messaging me to stop “complaining about women’s rights” because I posted a selfie with my women’s march sign because, according to you, I “have nothing to fear??” You’re talking to a survivor of two assaults who just entered the administration of a president who bragged about “grabbing women by the pussy,” not to mention the threat his policies and rhetoric pose to so many other Americans. I don’t often say this but honestly?? Shut up.

Rape victim did her own detective work to find her assailants
In the not-so-dark recesses of the Internet exists evidence of a company known as Efficient Pickup, which purports to teach men how to seduce women.
By Dana Littlefield

Our method is based on that kind of ruthless, very straightforward, very easy to assimilate method that’s going to give you consistent results with high-quality women,” says one of the company’s operators in a video posted on YouTube in 2015.

But it was no game for a woman in San Diego who was raped while she was passed out at an apartment in 2013. Although she reported the crime immediately, she also took it upon herself to find and identify her attackers.

She found them through an Internet search that led her to a website for Efficient Pickup, and blog entries in which the men bragged about the night she was sexually assaulted.

Two of the men —  Alexander Markham Smith, 27, and Jonas Dick, 28 — were identified as Efficient Pickup instructors. Each was convicted of rape charges and sentenced last year to eight years in prison.

A third man, Jason Berlin, was a student of the others. The 28-year-old is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in San Diego Superior Court in front of the same judge who ordered prison terms for the other two defendants.

Last month, Judge Jeffrey Fraser had harsh words for Smith, also known as “Beryl.”

“The fact is, the defendant did treat the victim in this case not as a human being but as simply an object,” Fraser said, according to a court transcript. “And I got to tell you, having sat up here for 18 years, there’s a lot of people that have sat in that chair … murderers, rapists, kidnappers — go down the list.”

The judge noted that the crime was committed with a level of criminal sophistication not usually seen in sex cases. He said the defendant had his own school, apartment and terminology, all used to teach men not to interact with women, but to rape them.
