Trump is nothing more than a street bully.
Does the power of money and privilege actually make Trump believe that he can utter those words without consequence at the voting booth?
Imagine if then candidate Barack Hussein Obama would have said something like that about birthers in the 2007/8 election cycle…ks
By now, everyone has heard of the violence and chaos that got a Donald Trump rally cancelled in Chicago, Illinois on Friday. Trump is, of course, furious, and is blaming the events of the evening on the protesters’ and even Bernie Sanders, instead of looking in the mirror and realizing that he is the one who created such a toxic, hate-filled environment in the first place. Now, he is doing what he does best and threatening anyone who dares to exercise their First Amendment rights and protest his hateful rallies.
In a speech in Kansas City, Missouri Saturday evening, The Donald took protesters…

Williams is charged with two counts of first-degree assault, one count of firing a weapon from a vehicle, and three counts of armed criminal action.

McCulloch did stated that regardless of the intended targets, the charges would be the same.
Here’s McCulloch’s News Briefing;
On Friday, George Zimmerman was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, and domestic violence involving a weapon. We have since learned that the weapon was a wine bottle.
On February 26 , 2012, George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman called the police non emergency number reporting a suspicious person. Travyon was returning from a convenience store, walking to Brandi Green’s house, where he and his dad were staying. Trayvon was unarmed.
Zimmerman abandoned his rental townhouse that same night, and did not return to work thereafter.
It was not until April 2012 that Zimmerman was charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
The weekend before his arrest, George Zimmerman opened a website and requested financial donations to a legal defense fund. After his arrest, the money began pouring in. Via the jail house telephone, he instructed his wife Shellie on transferring the money and paying off their debts. At a subsequent bond hearing, George Zimmerman sat in court like a “potted palm” while his wife denied knowledge of the money. George also kept hidden that he had a valid passport in a safety deposit box.
By motion of the State’s Attorney, Zimmerman’s bond was revoked. He had a subsequent bond hearing where Judge Lester stated that he believed that if it was not for the ankle bracelet, that Zimmerman would have left the country with other people’s money. Shellie was charged with perjury.
Around December 2012, George, Shellie, and Mark O’Mara were sued by a security firm for breach of contract and failure to pay.
On July 13, 2013, a jury of six women acquitted George Zimmerman. Following his acquittal, Shellie appeared in court and entered a plea agreement on the perjury charges. She then announced that she filed for divorce. Read the rest of this entry
The outspoken wife of the man who took the amateur video of Eric Garner’s fatal confrontation with police was arrested Tuesday night in connection with an assault on a woman in Staten Island, according to police.
Ronald Jackson’s blog is on blogspot which does not have an option for reblogging to Word Press blogs. His article is good and you might want to visit to read the full article he has posted. It includes a video that reports on the arrests of Ramsey Orta and now his wife, Chrissy.
Ramsey Orta is the man who videoed the police putting Eric Gardner in a choke hold. The medical examiner has ruled that Gardner’s death was a homicide.
Is there anyway that the public cannot see this as retaliation by the Staten Island police?
The U.S. Attorney’s office reports that Conrad Alvin Barrett of Katy, TX, is charged with assaulting a 79-year-old African American man in a knockout game-style attack. Barret, 27, attacked the victim because of his race, allegedly recording himself on his cell phone and showed the video to others.
ABC reports, “Barrett allegedly hit the victim with such force that he immediately fell to the ground. Barrett then laughed and said “knockout,” as he ran to his vehicle and fled, according to allegations. “
The 79-year-old victim reportedly suffered two jaw fractures and was hospitalized for several days as a result of the attack.
If convicted, Barrett faces a statutory maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Investigators say Barrett had been working up the “courage” to play the knockout game for about a week. According to the complaint, Barrett comments in a video that “the plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”
