Muzzie Woman Wins $85,000 Lawsuit for Being Stripped of Hijab for MUGSHOT

KIRSTY POWELL. GOTTA KEEP DAT DOO RAG ON OR ALLAH WILL PUNISH.

The nogs set up the police in order to tap the deep pockets of the city. Muslims will now be allowed to wear their headgear when a mugshot is taken.

The city of Long Beach, California, will pay $85,000 to settle a 2016 lawsuit filed by a Muslim woman after an officer forcibly removed her hijab, or headscarf, when she was in police custody.

The incident started when Kirsty Powell and her husband were pulled over by police for driving a “low rider” car, according to the lawsuit.

Powell was the passenger, but was arrested after police found a warrant under her name for a shoplifting incident.

Powell’s husband requested a female officer handle the arrest, according to the suit, but the arresting officers denied the request and told Powell she had to remove her hijab.

Powell spent the night in prison without her headscarf. It was returned when her husband posted her bond.

The lawsuit states Powell was “forced to appear in a publicly available booking photo without her religious headwear.”

Adding,” As a result of the foregoing deprivations of the free exercise of her religion, Kirsty Powell suffered severe discomfort, humiliation, and emotional distress.”

Powell filed the lawsuit in April 2016, alleging the police department had violated her First Amendment rights.

“She cried throughout the ordeal and experienced humiliation when both her religious beliefs and personal integrity were violated,” the lawsuit said.

CNN’s calls to the Long Beach City Attorney’s Office were not returned.

CNN affiliate KABC-TV reported the Long Beach Police Department changed its policy in November 2016 to allow an arrested person to wear religious headgear unless there is a safety concern.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations announced the settlement in a press release praising Powell.

“We commend Kirsty Powell for choosing to defend her right to religious freedom and taking action.”

Powell told the Council on American-Islamic Relations when she filed the suit she wanted to be the last Muslim woman who has this experience.

“I want my Muslim sisters to always feel comfortable and safe wearing a hijab and to stand up for what’s right,” she said.

Kirsty could have hung herself with that headscarf while in jail, which would have opened the cops up to even more legal liability than $85,000.

She gave up her right to claim a religious exemption when she allegedly committed a crime that her religion would not approve of. In the Muslim world, the hand of a thief is cut off.

Follow Sharia Law and cut off her hand.

Amputation is Islam.

Negro “Sovreign Citizen” Who Sued State for $11.5 BILLION Arrested for Shooting at Cops

JOHN JONES BEY. SHOOTING AT POLICE WILL PUT YOU IN JAIL.

The Sovereign Citizen movement must seem like a dream come true to the black man. Here’s a chance to stick it to the white man’s law. Except the white man’s law isn’t bending, much less breaking.

Indy Star

An Indianapolis man who believes the laws don’t apply to him and once sued the state for $11.5 billion was arrested Monday after a three-hour SWAT standoff.

John Jones Bey, 52, is facing three counts of attempted murder and three counts of criminal recklessness for his alleged role in the incident that played out Monday morning in the 3400 block of Kinnear Avenue.

According to a police report of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Bey fired gunshots at three Center Township constables as they attempted to serve him an eviction order.

MPD officers responded around 9:30 a.m. Monday, and the SWAT team was called in to assist when the armed Bey refused to leave his home.

After more than three hours, Bey peacefully surrendered, police said. No one was injured during the incident, and officers at the scene recovered the handgun that Bey is accused of firing at the constables.

Bey was booked into the Marion County Jail on the preliminary charges of attempted murder and criminal recklessness. A final charging decision will be made by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.

According to a February decision from the the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, Bey considers himself a “sovereign citizen,” meaning that he does not believe the laws apply to him. He also does not believe that he can be lawfully taxed in the absence of a contract between him and the state.

Bey, who describes himself as an “Aboriginal Indigenous Moorish-American,” previously filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana what he labeled a “Writ of Mandamus.” Within it Bey was seeking to enjoin state and county officials from taxing property that he owns in Marion County.

Court documents said Bey also asked that state officials be ordered to refund the taxes that he’d paid and to compensate him for their alleged wrongs. He determined that the district court should award him $11.5 billion to cover the 40 years of taxes and the mental anguish caused by the taxation.

The court of appeals in February affirmed the decision of the district court, ruling against Bey.

As we always advise here, there are legal ways to go stealth and avoid paying at least some taxes, without resorting to illegal, fraudulent Sovereign Citizen arguments. Bone up on tax law and learn how to reduce, if not eliminate your taxes, if that’s important to you. Challenging government directly is rarely wise. Quietly withdrawing from the System is far better in terms of outcomes for you.

Mother of Conrad Roy Files $4.2 Million Lawsuit Against Michelle Carter

Michelle Carter could be paying off a judgement against her in monthly installments for the rest of her life, once she leaves prison and finds a job. Alternatively, she may be able to declare bankruptcy and get her debt discharged. It’s difficult to call the outcome of lawsuits where the defendant has no assets and no income.

You may recall that the family of Ron Goldman won a lawsuit against O. J. Simpson, but according to reports I’ve seen over the years, they were able to collect nothing from the Juice as his lawyers were able to shield his assets.

Excerpt from Mass Live

The mother of Conrad Roy has filed a $4.2 million wrongful death lawsuit against Michelle Carter, following Carter’s manslaughter conviction for pressuring her son into suicide.

Carter was sentenced Thursday to two and a half years in jail, with 15 months to be served and the rest suspended until 2022. But the judge in the case approved a stay in the execution of the sentence until Massachusetts courts rule on her appeal, meaning that for now she remains free under probation conditions.

In the suit, filed in Norfolk Superior Court on July 6, Lynn Roy claims that Roy’s death has caused $4,224,000 in reasonably anticipated lost wages, citing the captain’s license he obtained shortly before his suicide as evidence of his earning potential.

CONRAD ROY HAD OBTAINED A CAPTAIN’S LICENSE.

Carters’ negligence and reckless conduct caused Roy to sustain “severe personal injuries, great conscious pain and suffering of body and mind and ultimately death,” the suit alleges.

Attorney Eric Goldman, one of the lawyers representing Lynn Roy in the suit, said the goal is to establish a memorial for Conrad, not profit financially.

“The family would obviously rather have their son back,” Goldman said. “What the Roys are looking to do is somehow memorialize Conrad.”

Daniel Medwed, a professor at the Northeastern University School of Law, said that wrongful death suits often focus on lost future earnings as the most concrete economic damages that arise from a loss of life.

“There’s often debate or battle over what those earnings might be, especially with teenagers,” he said. “How do you speculate what earning potential is when we all evolve?”

Many wrongful death suits end in a settlement and the $4.2 million claim could be a baseline for those negotiations, Medwed said. But members of the Roy family, some of whom voiced dissatisfaction with the stay in Carter’s sentence yesterday, could also see the case through to a jury if they want a more public form of justice.

“Part of it depends on if this is a message lawsuit where they really want their voices heard,” Medwed said.

Goldman said no settlement talks had begun but that the family is open to negotiations.

Carter’s attorney Joseph Cataldo did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Report: Trump to Take University Affirmative Action Policies to Court

Affirmative Action in university admissions is race replacement. It replaces highly qualified white and Asian students with less qualified blacks, browns, trans, queers, illegals, and whatever other groups are deemed victims of white male oppression.

Once the preferred students are in, then the universities have to lower standards (grade inflation, for example) in order to push them along to graduation.

Just as the mainstream media is rotten to the core, so is American higher education.

New York Times Via NOLA

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Department’s civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants, according to a document obtained by The New York Times.

The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”

The announcement suggests that the project will be run out of the division’s front office, where the Trump administration’s political appointees work, rather than its Educational Opportunities Section, which is run by career civil servants and normally handles work involving schools and universities.

The document does not explicitly identify whom the Justice Department considers at risk of discrimination because of affirmative action admissions policies. But the phrasing it uses, “intentional race-based discrimination,” cuts to the heart of programs designed to bring more minorities to university campuses.

Supporters and critics of the project said it was clearly targeting admissions programs that can give members of generally disadvantaged groups, like black and Latino students, an edge over other applicants with comparable or higher test scores.

The project is another sign that the civil rights division is taking on a conservative tilt under President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It follows other changes in Justice Department policy on voting rights, gay rights and police reforms.

Roger Clegg, a former top official in the civil rights division during the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations who is now the president of the conservative Center for Equal Opportunity, called the project a “welcome” and “long overdue” development as the United States becomes increasingly multiracial.

“The civil rights laws were deliberately written to protect everyone from discrimination, and it is frequently the case that not only are whites discriminated against now, but frequently Asian-Americans are as well,” he said.

But Kristen Clarke, the president of the liberal Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, criticized the affirmative action project as “misaligned with the division’s long-standing priorities.” She noted that the civil rights division was “created and launched to deal with the unique problem of discrimination faced by our nation’s most oppressed minority groups,” performing work that often no one else has the resources or expertise to do.

“This is deeply disturbing,” she said. “It would be a dog whistle that could invite a lot of chaos and unnecessarily create hysteria among colleges and universities who may fear that the government may come down on them for their efforts to maintain diversity on their campuses.”

The Justice Department declined to provide more details about its plans or to make the acting head of the civil rights division, John Gore, available for an interview.

“The Department of Justice does not discuss personnel matters, so we’ll decline comment,” said Devin O’Malley, a department spokesman.

The Supreme Court has ruled that the educational benefits that flow from having a diverse student body can justify using race as one factor among many in a “holistic” evaluation, while rejecting blunt racial quotas or race-based point systems. But what that permits in actual practice by universities — public ones as well as private ones that receive federal funding — is often murky.

Clegg said he would expect the project to focus on investigating complaints the civil rights division received about any university admissions programs.

He also suggested that the project would look for stark gaps in test scores and dropout rates among different racial cohorts within student bodies, which he said would be evidence suggesting that admissions offices were putting too great an emphasis on applicants’ race and crossing the line the Supreme Court has drawn.

Some of that data, he added, could be available through the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights, which did not respond to a request for comment.

The Supreme Court most recently addressed affirmative action admissions policies in a 2016 case, voting 4-3 to uphold a race-conscious program at the University of Texas at Austin. But there are several pending lawsuits challenging such practices at other high-profile institutions, including Harvard University and the University of North Carolina. The Justice Department has not taken a position in those cases.

The pending start of the affirmative action project — division lawyers who want to work on it must submit their resumes by Aug. 9, the announcement said — joins a series of changes involving civil rights law since Trump’s inauguration.

In a lawsuit challenging Texas’ strict voter identification law, the Justice Department switched its position, dropping the claim that the law was intentionally discriminatory and later declaring that the law has been fixed. Sessions has also made clear he is not interested in using consent decrees to impose reforms on troubled police departments and has initiated a sweeping review of existing agreements.

Canada: White Man Who Gave Thieving Aboriginal the Boot from Tire Store is FIRED

KAMAO CAPPO. ALLEGED THIEF.

The story below skips over some important details about how Big Chief was allegedly plotting the theft of a can of oil and a chain. You can read those details here.

Basically, the Red Man was buying a chainsaw and put the two other items inside the box with the machine.

The Injun, who claims to be a victim of discrimination, says that what happened to him wouldn’t have happened if he were white.

CBC.ca

A Canadian Tire employee seen getting physical with an Indigenous customer refusing to leave a store in Regina is no longer with the company, a spokesperson says.

“The employee involved in the matter has not been working in the store since the time of the incident and he is no longer with Canadian Tire,” said Joscelyn Dosanjh, the company’s manager of corporate communications, in an emailed statement to CBC News Saturday.

Dosanjh did not specify the circumstances around the employee’s departure and whether the employee resigned or was fired.

Videotaped tussle

Kamao Cappo, an Indigenous elder, said he was shopping for a chainsaw when the employee accused him of stealing.

Cappo disagreed and refused to leave the store. He posted two videos to social media that show the exchange with the worker growing increasingly heated.

At one point, the employee is seen pushing Cappo up against a shelf. He then pushed him toward the exit, with Cappo sliding on his feet.

“We have attempted to reach Mr. Cappo again this morning to express our sincere apologies. We wish to again state that we have taken this matter very seriously,” Dosanjh’s statement read.

‘Step in the right direction’

Cappo said the fact the employee is no longer at the store is a “step in the right direction.”

“If they had left him there, that would send out the message that, hey, they support [these] acts of violence against Indigenous people.”

“To get him out of there so he doesn’t harm anymore people is the best thing.”

Legal action

Cappo has filed an assault complaint, has spoken with a lawyer and is now considering legal action given the company’s response to the incident.

He said a store owner left a message for him on Saturday. Cappo also posted a previous conversation with another company representative on his Facebook page.

Cappo said he feels insulted by what he considers disingenuous apologies and delayed responses from Canadian Tire.

“If I was running a business and my employee did this, I would be completely flabbergasted. I would have acted immediately — any sane business person would have acted immediately, but they haven’t done that.”

I can’t find a copy of the video of the encounter to embed but there’s one at the link. I couldn’t get that one to play, probably because my Internet connection is too slow.

Since in both the U.S. and Canada now, the word and the conscientious actions of a white employee are worthless, let the damn diversity steal as much sh*t as they want. At least you might be able to keep your job.

Dindu Murderer to be Freed From Mississippi Jail After 11 Years without a Trial

STEVEN JESSIE HARRIS. TANKS DE LAWD, I’Z BE FREE.

Mississippi was exceptionally nice to Steven Jessie Harris. Because the state ruled him mentally incompetent to stand trial 11 years ago, he’s catching a big break. The madman is going to be released from custody because he got lost in the system.

Fox News

A Mississippi man who has been in jail for 11 years without a trial for the alleged murder of his father soon will be released.

Police say Steven Jessie Harris was arrested in October 2005 for the murder of his father, Malichi Randle. He was indicted with 11 different counts including murder in 2006, but a later ruling declared him incompetent to stand trial after he was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Clay County Sheriff Eddie Scott says Harris at the time went on a crime spree shooting his father and cars. He also allegedly carjacked and stabbed a driver. Deputies pursued Harris and the spree ended in a shootout with police injuring three deputies, according to police.

Scott says Harris spent much of the past 11 years in the Clay County Jail in-between medical evaluations.

“He’s right back on the streets,” Scott told Fox News. “There’s no justice at all for the victims in this thing. The criminal courts and law enforcement [have] no jurisdiction over him at this point.”

Harris’ lawyer Carlos Moore says his client’s rights were violated and is working on a lawsuit against Clay County for damages. Moore took over Harris’ case last year after being approached by his brother.

“You have a constitutional right to speedy trial, there shouldn’t be any cruel or unusual punishment,” Moore said. It’s very cruel and unusual to lock somebody up and throw away the key for 11 years without a trial. You have a fourth amendment right to no unreasonable searches and seizures. There were several constitutional rights that were violated.”

Moore notes that charges theoretically could be brought back against Harris if his mental state changes in the future but says he doesn’t see that happening. Charges levied against Harris were dismissed due to his mental status and he is expected to be released soon.

I imagine that liberals are shaking their heads and thinking along the following lines:

1. Harris was a victim of racism.

Prove it, liberals.

2. Harris was mistreated.

Actually, if he had gone to trial he might have received the death penalty.

OK, liberals. Since you are so concerned, you take Harris and raise some money to move him into your neighborhood.

It’s the least you can do for a po’ ole’ Nigra.

Snopes in Danger of Shutting Down–Begs for $$$

Fact checking website Snopes.com is one of the most popular sites on the Internet. Recently, it’s become embroiled in scandal relating to sex and the misuse of funds, are reported on saboteur365 last December 22.

There are legal claims that were asserted this year that there’s more scamming going on in relation to Snopes. The response by Snopes has been to start a fund raising campaign. The Gofundme appeal has already raised $281,000 toward a half million dollar goal.

First, the Snopes fund raising appeal, then the story about the lawsuit relating to ownership and control of Snopes and misuse of funds by the Jewish owner.

SNOPES.COM COMMUNITY: WE NEED YOUR HELP
Snopes.com in Danger of Shuttering

Dear Readers,

Snopes.com, which began as a small one-person effort in 1994 and has since become one of the Internet’s oldest and most popular fact-checking sites, is in danger of closing its doors. So, for the first time in our history, we are turning to you, our readership, for help.

Since our inception, we have always been a self-sustaining site that provides a free service to the online world: we’ve had no sponsors, no outside investors or funding, and no source of revenue other than that provided by online advertising. Unfortunately, we have been cut off from our historic source of advertising income.

We had previously contracted with an outside vendor to provide certain services for Snopes.com. That contractual relationship ended earlier this year, but the vendor will not acknowledge the change in contractual status and continues to essentially hold the Snopes.com web site hostage. Although we maintain editorial control (for now), the vendor will not relinquish the site’s hosting to our control, so we cannot modify the site, develop it, or — most crucially — place advertising on it. The vendor continues to insert their own ads and has been withholding the advertising revenue from us.

Our legal team is fighting hard for us, but, having been cut off from all revenue, we are facing the prospect of having no financial means to continue operating the site and paying our staff (not to mention covering our legal fees) in the meanwhile.

As misinformation has increasingly threatened democracies around the world (including our own), Snopes.com has stood in the forefront of fighting for truth and dispelling misinformation online. It is vital that these efforts continue, so we are asking the Snopes.com community to donate what they can. (Our suggested donation is $10, but if you can give more please consider doing so — every little bit helps.)

We need our community now more than ever, as it is only through your support that Snopes.com can remain the community and resource we all know and love.

Sincerely yours,

Team Snopes.

Excerpt from Courthouse News

A lawsuit filed in California last week claims the fact-check news site Snopes.com has been caught up in its own concealment scheme, in an ownership spat that has left the site’s personnel matters in limbo.

Internet media management company Proper Media sued Bardav Inc. and its owner David Mikkelson over the “unlawful jockeying for ownership and control of the fact-checking website Snopes.com,” which gained a national profile during the presidential election last year and “recently entered into a high-profile agreement with Facebook to integrate fact-checking services into its social media platform,” according to the 16-page lawsuit filed in San Diego Superior Court on May 4.

Mikkelson and his ex-wife Barbara founded Bardav – which owns the Snopes website – in 2003, and each owned a 50 percent shared in the company. When the two divorced, Barbara Mikkelson sold her share to Proper Media last July.

While Proper Media was already managing a significant amount of the operation of Snopes including all content and advertising accounts prior to acquiring shares in the company, the company says in its complaint that when its individual shareholders, including Vincent Green, gained a stake in Snopes a scam was launched to take over the website – one of the 1,000 most popular in the United States.

But Proper Media says in its complaint that Mikkelson “was unhappy that Barbara maintained ownership of half of what he always considered to be his company after the divorce.”

Thus, Proper Media says, Green and Mikkelson conspired to gain majority control of Bardav and Snopes.com. Mikkelson and Green blocked its access to “personnel, accounts, tools and data necessary to manage Snopes,” according to the lawsuit.

“Mikkelson, in conjunction with Green, intentionally did block Proper Media’s access to personnel, accounts, tools and data to take over Snopes and to prevent Proper Media from performing under the general services agreement,” Proper Media says in its lawsuit.

The company also accuses Mikkelson of misusing Bardav funds and says he was improperly reimbursed for legal fees related to his divorce and travel expenses from when he went on a honeymoon to Asia late last year with his new bride – Snopes employee Elyssa Young.

DAVID MIKKELSON AND BRIDE ELYSSA YOUNG.

Meanwhile, Green removed $10,000 worth of computer equipment used by three Proper Media employees before sending his resignation to Proper Media from a Snopes email account, according to Proper Media’s lawsuit. The company also accuses him of blocking its founders – plaintiffs Christopher Richmond and Drew Schoentrup – from accessing Snopes’ content-management system.

Additionally, Proper Media says Green removed Snopes-related data from its online communication tools including Slack and Asana. The company says Green admitted he did not complete work for Proper Media from the start of the alleged conspiracy in January up until his resignation April 3, even though the company paid him and contributed to his health insurance premiums, according to the lawsuit.

Proper Media is still responsible for operating the content-management system for Snopes, though access to the system remains blocked for Proper Media employees, the lawsuit says.

Shut it down. It’s fake news.
