DARK HORSE Inside the world of ‘bronies’- the men who love My Little Pony & are linked with neo-Nazism & shootings

MY Little Pony is supposed to be a harmless kids show, but a hardcore following of adult fans have twisted it into something darker.

Animal porn and white supremacy have long been associated with the surreal subculture — which is now being linked with a mass shooting too.

Last week, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole shot eight people dead at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis where he’s believed to have previously worked.

The teen, who killed himself after the attack, posted a bizarre message on Facebook less than an hour before he opened fire. 

“I hope that I can be with Applejack in the afterlife, my life has no meaning without her,” the post read, according to the Wall Street Journal

The post was reportedly accompanied by a picture of Applejack, one of the main characters from the children’s TV series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

An internal Facebook memo obtained by the Journal says Hole had two Facebook accounts which mostly focused on My Little Pony. 

Adult fans of the show refer to themselves as “bronies” — a portmanteau of the words “bro” and “ponies” — and as a group they’ve “displayed elements of far-right and white nationalist extremism,” the memo said, though there’s no sign that was what motivated Hole’s attack. 

While the overwhelming majority of bronies are just sincere fans of the series, online forums have been infested with extreme porn and racist messaging for years — and have even been linked with real world violence before. 

Kids show with adult fans

My Little Pony had happily cantered along for decades as an innocuous brand for kids long before online forums became obsessed with it. 

Hasbro began manufacturing the range of toys in 1981, but the series’ characters didn’t gain a widespread adult following until the launch of the animated kids series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in 2010.

The show follows a group of magical pony friends with names like Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash on their adventures in a fantasy world called Equestria.

In the years since it first aired, the brony subculture built in online forums including 4Chan, an anonymous image board site now linked with a seemingly endless list of scandals. 

But it soon spilled offline too, with brony conventions attracting thousands of likeminded fans from around the world to meet up in person.

And there’s even a hardcore following in the UK who’ve been outspoken in defending their interest, arguing that most bronies are just well-intentioned hobbyists.

“Some people seem to think it’s sexual attraction to the characters,” Sam Harris, organiser of the Severn Bronies, told the BBC.

“Or that they might want to do things with actual horses, or they collect the cuddly toys to do lewd things to them, that kind of thing is sensationalist hype and completely untrue.

“If anyone thinks it’s strange or unusual, I’d just say, there are so many different types of people in the world who enjoy various different things and as long as it makes them happy, and it doesn’t hurt them, what does it matter?”

Horse porn and white supremacy

In recent years, concerns have been raised about some of the content that is being shared on a daily basis on dedicated brony sites. 

And despite Harris’ insistence, there are some bronies who do sexualise the characters.

Sometimes referred to as “cloppers”, these users commission and share pornographic images of the kids TV show characters.

And there’s also been well-documented threads of neo-Nazi and white supremacist content spread throughout the subculture.

One fan-made character, Aryanne, is often depicted wearing an SS uniform with a pink heart marking on her hip which contains a swastika. 

The alarming cross-over between the alt-right and bronies might also have a serious grounding in the UK too.

An anonymous blogger known as Buttercup Dew ran a site called My Nationalist Pony which used the children’s characters to spread white nationalist ideas. 

The writer claimed to be a man in their 20s from south London in a 2014 interview with Counter Currents

“I was raised here and have never lived significantly far from here, so I’ve always been on top of a Ground Zero for white displacement,” they said. 

They added that they were specifically preaching white nationalism to bronies because they are: “an implicitly (and heavily) white group of young men, who are suffering from a total disillusionment with modern life, casting around for an identity and meaningful purpose.

“Basically, the target demographic that White Nationalism needs to capture if whites are to survive. 

“Despite a healthy crop of alienated losers seeking inclusion, the presence and sheer scale of the ‘brony’ fandom cannot be underestimated.”

Brony bloodshed

Bronies have been implicated in murder cases even before last week’s bloodshed.

Acosta, who was 23 at the time of the attack, shot dead the mother, stepfather, and a family friend of a teenage girl he believed to be freeing from an abusive family situation. 

He met the teenager through furry and brony groups, NBC Los Angelesreports, with the former referring to people who are interested in dressing up as animals with human qualities. 

Two girls aged six and nine were in the house at the time of the bloodbath. 

On a 911 call played in court, the six-year-old can be heard saying: “My dad is in the backyard dead and my mom is dead in bed…”

Acosta was jailed for life in 2018.

While investigators hoped to discover a motive for Hole’s massacre in Indianapolis last week, the search continues. 

He was placed under psychiatric detention by police last spring after his mother reported concerns that he was contemplating “suicide by cop”, according to the FBI.

A shotgun was taken from his home, but when he was cleared of harbouring “racially motivated violent extremism ideology”, he was able to legally buy assault rifles in July and September.

Police say he was seen using both weapons during the shooting, which left four members of the local Sikh community dead. 

The Sikh Coalition has called for an investigation into “bias as a possible motive” in the killings, though investigators are yet to establish a motive. 

The FedEx attack is the deadliest attack on the Sikh community in the US since 2012, when a white supremacist killed seven at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.

GOP Place Kamala Harris’s Picture on ‘Missing’ Milk Carton to Highlight Border Debacle

The Republican House caucus used a milk carton prop with Vice President Kamala Harris’s face on it as at a press conference to draw attention to her silence on the issue. Harris will now travel to Guatemala and Mexico to fulfill President Joe Biden’s instructions to “engage in a diplomatic effort.”

Harris’s plans come Wednesday as the administration takes heat over President Joe Biden’s reversal of former President Donald Trump’s stay in Mexico policy. This policy change is encouraging unaccompanied illegal alien minors to come into the United States, only to be captured by law enforcement, who then place the children together in cages with or without coronavirus.

As Harris’s travel intentions reached the airwaves Wednesday, in response to Harris’s lack of action the Republican House caucus presented a milk carton Wednesday morning  with the words written above her face on the carton, “Missing at the border.

The Republican criticism of Harris stems from her seeming lack of urgency. It has been 22 days since Biden bestowed the southern border task on Harris, saying, “I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this.” Yet no timetable has been set for the journey.

Many Republican senators and House members, along with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), traveled to the border to inspect the crisis.

The White House, though, refused to call it a crisis. Instead, they call it only a “challenge.” But on Monday, Breitbart’s John Binder reported “more than a million illegal aliens could arrive at the United States-Mexico border this year,” according to an analysis which states, “at the current pace, apprehensions for calendar year 2021 could be forecast at 1.2 million, following the precedents of 2005 and 2006.”

Harris called the border crisis on March 22 a “very challenging situation,” also noting, “We’ve got to treat this issue in a way that is reflective of our values as Americans and do it in a way that is fair and is humane, but we have to meet the moment,” she said. “There’s a lot of work going into that.”

Officer arrested, will face second-degree manslaughter charge in killing of Daunte Wright

Former Brooklyn Center police officer Kimberly A. Potter was arrested late Wednesday morning at the offices of the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the agency said in a statement.

Potter, who resigned from the police department on Tuesday, was booked into Hennepin County jail shortly after noon on a charge of probable cause second-degree manslaughter in the shooting death on Sunday of Daunte Wright, jail records show. The Washington County Attorney’s office was expected to file charges later in the day.

Potter is being represented by attorney Earl Gray, who was not immediately available for comment.

Attorney Ben Crump, who said he has been retained by Wright’s family, issued a statement Wednesday with co-counsel Jeff Storms and Antonio Romanucci in response to the charges.

“While we appreciate that the district attorney is pursuing justice for Daunte, no conviction can give the Wright family their loved one back,” the statement said. “This was no accident. This was an intentional, deliberate, and unlawful use of force,” the statement read. “Driving while Black continues to result in a death sentence. A 26-year veteran of the force knows the difference between a Taser and a firearm.”

A second-degree manslaughter charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison or a $20,000 fine or both.

Minneapolis defense attorney Barry Edwards said statutory maximum sentences don’t mean much, as judges instead follow guidelines from the state Sentencing Guidelines Commission. In the case of someone with no prior felonies facing a second-degree manslaughter conviction, the presumptive and more likely sentence would be four years, he said. And even then, a judge may consider probation instead of prison.

“If it were my client, I would argue for probation … and expect a good chance of winning,” Edwards said.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman referred the case to Washington County Attorney Pete Orput under a practice adopted last year among metro area county attorney’s offices for deadly police shootings. It calls for the county attorney in the jurisdiction where the shooting took place to refer the case to one of the other counties, or the state Attorney General’s Office, to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest.

The BCA investigated the shooting.

Potter, 48, joined the Brooklyn Center police force in 1995 at age 22. She was placed on standard administrative leave following the shooting.

Potter was training in a new officer on Sunday at about 2 p.m. when she and two officers stopped a car near N. 63rd and Orchard avenues in Brooklyn Center. Former Brooklyn Center police chief Tim Gannon, who also resigned Tuesday, told media that officers stopped Wright’s car because it had an expired tag, and when they checked his name found he had a warrant.

Hennepin County District Court records show a warrant was issued April 2 for Wright after he failed to make his first court appearance on a case filed in March of carrying a pistol without a permit, a gross misdemeanor, and fleeing police, a misdemeanor.

In bodycam footage released by the Brooklyn Center Police Department, Wright is seen getting out of his car during the stop and standing near the open driver’s door as one of the officers pulls out handcuffs. A few moments later, Wright starts to struggle with the officers and gets back into his car. Potter shouts “Taser!” three times before firing a single bullet, then says “Holy shit. I just shot him.”

With Wright in the driver’s seat, the car pulls away. The car crashed a short distance away when it hit another vehicle. Wright died at the scene. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office said Wright died of a gunshot wound to the chest and labeled his death a homicide.

Potter’s arrest marks at least the third time that a U.S. law enforcement officer faced or faces criminal charges for killing someone in what they claim or what appears to be a mix-up between a gun and a Taser.

A 73-year-old volunteer reserve deputy in Oklahoma was charged with second-degree manslaughter in the 2015 death of Eric Harris. Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer Johannes Mehserle was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a jury trial and sentenced to two years in prison for the 2009 shooting of Oscar Grant III. A third such deadly mix-up that resulted in the 2002 death of Everardo Torres did not lead to criminal charges against the officer.

Law enforcement on Tuesday erected concrete barricades and tall metal fencing around the perimeter of Potter’s multilevel home in Champlin. Two police cars guarded the driveway behind fortified fences marked with signs reading “Caution: Lasers in Use.” Her street was lined with paper “No Parking” signs and blocked to nonresidential traffic. Motorists entering the area were greeted by a buzzing cellphone alert from local police to “expect protest activity in your neighborhood over the next few days.”

At the home of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin last spring, protesters defaced his property in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, scrawling “Murderer” in red paint on the driveway.

Child killer received state-funded gender transition in California jail

An inmate convicted of murdering two babies is among the transgender prison inmates housed at a California women’s facility.

Forty-six-year-old Jessica M. Hann, formerly known as Jason Michael Hann, was admitted to Riverside County in February 2014 with a death sentence for first-degree murder, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Deputy Press Secretary Terry Thornton told the Daily Caller News Foundation Thursday.

Hann was transferred to Central California Women’s Facility in February 2020 and is housed on death row, Thornton said. The mother of Hann’s children, 41-year-old Krissy Lynn Werntz, was admitted to the facility in July 2014 where she is housed in the general population serving life with the possibility of parole for second-degree murder. (RELATED: 255 California Prison Inmates Have Requested Transfer To Women’s Prisons Since January)

A judge sentenced Hann after authorities discovered the deceased remains of Hann’s and Werntz’s son Jason and daughter Montana hidden in the couple’s abandoned trailers. The couple was indicted by a grand jury in 2009, and attorneys said that Hann killed the children and that Werntz hid the remains, bringing the remains on their travels throughout the country.

Authorities convicted Hann of Montana’s murder in 2013, sentencing him to death, according to CBS News. Hann was also convicted of second-degree murder for Jason’s death and sentenced to 27 to 30 years in prison, according to the publication.

Hann underwent a state-funded gender transition while incarcerated, the local California outlet KESQ reported, noting that California is the first state to pay for inmate’s gender reassignment surgeries.

It is not immediately clear what date Hann underwent the transition, but CDCR communications chief Liz Gransee told KESQ that as of February 2019, “10 patients statewide have been approved for gender-affirming surgery,” and by February 2020, Hann was transferred to the Central California Women’s Facility under the name “Jessica.”

“Senate Bill 310 allows a state prisoner or county jail inmate the right to petition a court to obtain a name or gender change,” Thornton previously told KESQ. “SB 310 requires CDCR to use the new name of the person who obtains a name change and to list the prior name only as an alias. CDCR updated Hann’s records and made notification to the victim on file on Feb. 14.”

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed S.B. 132 into law in January, a bill that requires CDCR to ask every individual entering the department’s custody to specify their pronouns, their gender identity, and whether they identify as transgender, nonbinary, or intersex.

The law requires that CDCR house the individual in a “correctional facility designated for men or women based on the individual’s preference.” Similar legislation has been passed in Connecticut and Massachusetts(RELATED: Trans Woman Tears Into ‘Transphobic’ TSA In Viral Video Over Scanner Sensing ‘Anomaly Between My Legs That Sets Off The Alarm’)

Since the bill went into effect in January, 261 inmates have requested “gender based housing” transfers, the CDCR told the DCNF Tuesday. The vast majority of these requests were from inmates requesting to be transferred to female facilities, and only six were from “transgender men and non-binary incarcerated people who are requesting to be housed in a male institution.”

During a 2014 court hearing, Deputy District Attorney Lisa DiMaria said that Werntz chose “a gypsy lifestyle” with Hann rather than caring for her children, according to the Desert Sun. The couple’s first child, Jason, was born in 1999 in Ohio, the publication reported, but reportedly suffered fatal injuries several weeks later.

Werntz did not notify authorities about the baby’s death and hid the baby’s remains, the Desert Sun reported. The second baby, Montana, was born in December 2000, according to the publication. (RELATED: ‘It Destroyed My Body’: Here’s Why This Former Trans Woman Regrets His Gender Transition)

Montana’s leg reportedly “snapped in half like a twig” a month after she was born but Werntz ignored the injury, DiMaria said. This second baby died in February 2001, and Werntz again hid the baby’s remains from authorities and stayed with Hann, even telling authorities that there was no proof that Hann had abused the children.

“The truth is this baby was abused and killed while in the care and custody of the defendant and Hann,” DiMaria said.

“The only way healthy baby Montana died was the defendant contributed to her death — either she co-abused the child, or failed to protect the child,” the attorney continued.

Authorities arrested the couple in 2002 in Portland, Maine, where a third child was discovered — another son named Michael, who had skull, femur, and rib fractures when he was found, according to the Desert Sun.

He was taken to foster care and was later adopted, KESQ reported.

“It was like some twisted, baby-killing Bonnie and Clyde,” DiMaria said, according to the Desert Sun. (RELATED: Former Trans Woman Praises Laws Banning Sex Change Surgeries, Puberty Blockers For Minors)

Montana’s remains were found in a plastic container in a trailer that was auctioned off in February 2002, the Desert Sun reported, and an Arkansas man who bought the trailer found the baby’s body. The publication reported that after Hann’s and Werntz’s arrests, authorities found Jason’s remains in a plastic container in an Arizona storage unit.

Werntz received a sentence of 15 years to life in prison, according to KESQ.

DMX, Iconic Ruff Ryders Rapper, Dies at 50

DMX, the iconic rapper who helped build the Ruff Ryders label into a powerhouse during the late 1990s, has died.

The Yonkers-bred MC, born Earl Simmons, passed away on Friday (April 10) after experiencing a heart attack triggered by a drug overdose. He was 50.

“We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days. Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end. He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him. Earl’s music inspired countless fans across the world and his iconic legacy will live on forever,” his family said in a statement. “We appreciate all of the love and support during this incredibly difficult time. Please respect our privacy as we grieve the loss of our brother, father, uncle and the man the world knew as DMX. We will share information about his memorial service once details are finalized.”ARTIST MENTIONEDDMX

As of Sunday (April 4), DMX had been on life support and was in a “vegetative state,” according to his former manager.

One of rap’s biggest underdogs, DMX, catapulted into mainstream glory in 1998 when the East Coast crown was up for grabs. After the passing of The Notorious B.I.G. in 1997, New York yearned for a new king. With Nas and Jay-Z considered promising replacements to the throne, a young, spirited DMX pounced on the opportunity to spar with the city’s elite.

Before officially entering the mainstream circuit with his magnum opus, 1998’s It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, X proved his competitive fervor when he and Jay first battled in the mid-’90s. As legend has it, X took a cab from Baltimore to New York to partake in the main event. To this day, the contentious Bronx royale highlighted X’s bruising delivery, scrappy wordplay, and grit-and-grind mindset.

“It was both of their styles at their purest forms. DMX was definitely on that barking, that whole thing. That was his whole persona. His voice was just raw,” producer Ski-Beatz told HipHopDX in 2011 regarding the infamous showdown.

The Darkman’s dog-eat-dog mentality continued when he signed to Ruff Ryders/Def Jam. Like his Bronx battle against Jay, X didn’t shy away from the competition. Out the gate, he blitzed the hip-hop game with hard-hitting features, most notably LL Cool J‘s “4, 3, 2, 1” (Remix), Mase‘s “24 Hrs. to Live,” and The LOX‘s “Money, Power, Respect.”

Then, in 1998, his signature growl and bark found a home on his debut album, It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot. After flexing his aggressive aura on his singles like “Get At Me Dog” and “Stop Being Greedy,” he put the rap game on notice when he and a young Swizz Beatz carved out “Ruff Ryders Anthem” — an ode to their burgeoning crew.

The album zoomed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, cementing his status as a superstar. Following the release of It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, X’s pursuit for rap dominance continued when he doubled down and dropped his second album, Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, later that year.

While juggling his newfound music fame, X segued into acting. He proved he was a natural when he starred alongside Nas in the hip-hop classic film Belly. His role opened more doors on the movie side, as he later was featured in Romeo Must Die (2000), Exit Wounds (2001) and Cradle 2 the Grave (2003).

Seven months after the release of It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, X scored his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood in December 1998. That feat made him the second artist after Tupac Shakur to have two albums released in the same calendar year go No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Though X’s tough exterior lured listeners in, it was vulnerability and bone-chilling honesty that served as his best attributes. Tracks such as “Slippin” and “I Can Feel It” offered glimpses into his mindset when he encountered the hard times in his life. Those rough patches were often his double-edged sword. As a child, he was abused by his mother. He was sent away to children’s homes. At 14, he tried crack cocaine. And though his troubled youth served as great material for his songs, it would later have a toll on his adult life, where he would experience substance abuse.

After being charged with tax fraud in 2017, DMX spent a year in prison. Upon getting out, he canceled a slew of shows to check into rehab. In 2019, he struggled with drug addiction again and went back to a rehabilitation facility.

“In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility,” his Instagram told fans. “He apologizes for his cancelled shows and thanks his fans for their continued support.”

Those moments also strengthened X’s resiliency. He leaned on his faith as Jehovah’s Witness to carry him on. The power of prayer was one of X’s hallmarks, especially throughout his albums and performances. Before he exited a set, he fittingly placed a bow on his performance with a heartfelt prayer.

“One thing about Dog is that it never really mattered about the money,” Swizz Beatz told Billboard in 2018. You never seen X in a fancy car. You’ve never seen him with an excess [amount] of jewelry on. X gave his money away to a lot of people. People don’t do that. X is just a different type of person. That’s why I still support him and his family to this day as my brother, no matter what he’s dealing with or whatever. We’ve slept on the floors together. We did real s— together. X is just unique.”

With five No. 1 Billboard 200 albums to his credit, X wasn’t just a rapper — he was a fighter. He fought demons. He fought the odds. He slept on floors. He did whatever he needed to do to push on because that’s all he knew how to do. Now, with him finally at peace, he no longer needs to fight. The dog can finally walk away, knowing his legacy will always be remembered and respected.

DMX Received Covid Vaccine Days Before Heart Attack – Family Says NO DRUGS! (EXCLUSIVE)

Rap legend DMX, real name Earl Simmons, is currently in the ICU after suffering from a massive heart attack. Early reports speculated that DMX’s condition may have been brought about because of an alleged drug overdose.

DMX

But MTO News spoke with a member of the Simmons family who believes that it was NOT drugs that caused the heart attack.

In an EXCLUSIVE interview, MTO News spoke with DMX’ family member who told us that the rapper received the COVID vaccine about a week before he suffered from the heart attack.

DMX’s family member told MTO News, “[DMX] got the vaccine when they opened it up to people over 50. He got it so that he could go travel and perform, stuff like that.”

New York State opened up the COVID-19 vaccinations for people over the age of 50 in mid March.

And the family member suspects that DMX heart attack could have been a reaction to the vaccine. The family member explained, “Everyone [in the news] keeps saying that [DMX] had a drug overdose. How do they know. I’m in the family and no doctor told me anything about an overdose.”

The family member is FURIOUS about the speculation surrounding DMX drug use. She told MTO News, “Yes he had past issues with drugs. But nobody knows that he had an OD. It’s f**cked up that its being reported like that.”

She told MTO News that she – and the family – are considering taking legal action against news publications prematurely concluding that DMX  suffered a drug overdose.

But what is clear – according to the family member – is that DMX did take the Covid vaccine.

The grieving kin explained, “He took that vaccine, and he had a heart attack. I’m not saying the vaccine did it, but he never had a heart attack before.”

Over 167 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through April 5, 2021. During this time, The CDC received only 2,794 reports of death among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine.

2 Black Female DC Teens Will Not Face Consequences For Violent Death Of Asian Uber Eats Driver

2 Black Female DC Teens Will Not Face Consequences For Violent Death Of Asian Uber Eats Driver

Two Black Teen girls whose shocking and violent attacks went viral and ended in a Muslim man’s death in Washington DC while he was working have been given a rapid cushy plea deal to basically get off without any punishment.

“Two teen girls accused of car-jacking and killing an Uber Eats driver in D.C. ‘reach plea deal with prosecutor ensuring they will not be held past the age of 21 nor be placed in a prison facility, “DailyMail UK reported.

The condition in a nutshell: Two Black Teens killed an Asian man, Mohammad Anwar, an immigrant from Pakistan, and showed absolutely no remorse at all while they passed the body of the man they killed to look for their phones.  The Black Mayor of DC, who supports and defends Black Lives Matter, tweeted out a callous tweet after the event, and now the girls will not face any consequences for their violent crime.

“The two killers of Mohammed Anwar getting a plea deal that avoids prison time is a perfect example of both female privilege and black privilege. No way in hell does a white male teenager who murders a Pakistani immigrant get a deal like that, especially in DC,” Matt Walsh posted on Twitter. 

“The two girls charged in the death of Mohammed Anwar are getting a plea deal in a few days. The youngest girl was involved in a car-jacking in January! They won’t be tried as adults! And, they’re out on bail!!” A poster on Twitter wrote in reaction to the news of the plea deal. 

Paul Joesph Watson wrote about the plea deal:

“The shocking incident which occurred last month was caught on camera but received little media attention amidst a media narrative about “white supremacy” posing the biggest threat to Asians.

Mohammad Anwar resisted the two African-American girls’ efforts to steal his vehicle as the pair used a taser to try to subdue him.

The clip shows the girls driving off with the car as Anwar clings onto the door. A loud smash is then heard as the car crashes, violently throwing Anwar from the vehicle while both girls escape relatively unharmed,” he wrote.

At the same time, Trump supporters have spent weeks in prison waiting for hearings on the events of Jan. 6th; it is curious to note how quickly these two teens were processed and given a very light sentence for a violent crime that ended up in the death of a man.

According to the Daily Mail article: 

  • Two girls, ages 13 and 15, who were charged with the murder and carjacking of a Mohammad Anwar, 66, in DC , have reportedly reached a plea deal.
  • On Monday, the teens are said to have reached the deal with prosecutors that would ensure they won’t be held past age of 21 nor be placed in a prison facility
  • Anwar died when police said the girls, armed with a taser, sped off in his car as he clung to the driver’s side with the door open and crashed seconds later

I covered the shocking video and the aftermath here, questioning if the Mayor of DC is showing bias:

Consider that in a similar case from January teens who killed an Uber Eats Driver in a carjacking faced capital murder.

Star-Telegram on Houston reported:

“Two 14-year-old boys were arrested Wednesday [Janurary 28 2021]  on suspicion they were involved in the fatal stabbing of a 31-year-old woman who was delivering for Uber Eats in Haltom City on Saturday, officials announced.

The suspects, whose identities weren’t released because they’re juveniles, wanted to steal her car but couldn’t find her keys, according to police. They also took her iPhone 7.

The two suspects appeared separately in Tarrant County Juvenile Court on Thursday morning for virtual detention hearings, where officials read from a police report stating a confidential informant told law enforcement of their involvement and that one of them was planning to leave town. The teens came before a judge in a juvenile processing facility for a formal admission, officials said. They are charged with delinquent conduct/capital murder.”

So do the teen girls who killed the Asian man have some sort of special status?

The left has completely shifted our justice system to their social justice system it appears. That is what happens with the far left are elected to govern.

Rapper YG’s Song ‘Meet the Flockers’ Sparks Protests, Accusations of Targeting Asian Americans

Protesters are saying YG’s song “Meet the Flockers” celebrates violence against Asian Americans.

Asian Americans protested Wednesday night outside a concert in Maryland, criticizing California rap artist YG for a song whose lyrics talk about burglarizing homes in Chinese neighborhoods.

“It glorifies crime against Asian Americans,” Cliff Li, one of the rally organizers, told NBC News. “We want to say it’s wrong to glorify crime against everybody.”

Holding signs that read “STOP Cultural Violence” and “Respect everybody, Respect yourself,” between 30 and 50 protesters, most of them Chinese American, gathered outside YG’s concert at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland, Li said, about six miles north of Washington, D.C.

The controversy centers on YG’s “Meet The Flockers” and its music video, released in 2014. The lyrics, which critics say detail how to commit a burglary, begin: “First, you find a house and scope it out. Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts.”

The music video shows two armed men, with bandanas partially covering their faces, entering a house as the camera pans over to a framed photo of an Asian-American family of four.

Outrage over “Meet The Flockers” comes almost a month after a Chinese-American woman made headlines for confronting three intruders who had entered her Atlanta-area home in the middle of the night on Sept. 16.

The woman opened fire with her own handgun, and at least two armed suspects returned fire, according to NBC Atlanta affiliate 11Alive. One suspect was killed in the exchange, while two others escaped and were still at large, the news station reported. The woman was not charged.

There is no confirmation whether the incident was related to the song, but Li said it was one of the factors that led to the protests against the song.

Five days after the Atlanta incident, a White House petition was created, saying “‘Meet the Flockers’ by YG encourages violence and crimes to a specific ethnic group.” The online petition asks for the song to be banned from “public media” and for the “legal responsibilities of the writer” to be investigated.

As of Friday morning, the petition had received more than 71,000 signatures.

“Think about all the inner-city kids, think about all the kids in the United States and all over the world, if they watch this, what kind of influence will it have on these kids,” said Li, secretary general of the New Civil Rights Alliance, one of the groups that demonstrated.

YG did not return emails from NBC News requesting comment on the protest.

Li said demonstrators were also upset by YG and Nipsey Hussle’s “FDT” song and video, which features rappers singing the refrain “f**k Donald Trump” as people display the middle finger at the camera.

“I feel this is the wrong way to use an art form to distort a lot of facts the candidate said,” Li added.

Additional protests against the rap artists and what demonstrators called cultural violence are being planned for this weekend and next week, Li said, in cities where YG will appear for “The F**k Donald Trump Tour.”

China Is Detaining Christians In Secret Facilities Forcing Them To Renounce Their Faith Or Be Tortured: Report

China Is Detaining Christians In Secret Facilities Forcing Them To Renounce Their Faith Or Be Tortured: Report

The Chinese Communist Party is reportedly detaining Christians in secret facilities and forcing them to renounce their faith or face being tortured for months.

“A member of a Christian ‘house church’ in the southwestern province of Sichuan who asked to be identified by a pseudonym Li Yuese said he was held in a facility run by the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s United Front Work Department, working in tandem with the state security police, for 10 months after a raid on his church in 2018,” Radio Free Asia reported. “Another Christian who asked to remain anonymous told RFA that similar facilities are being used across China, not just for Protestants, but also for members of the underground Catholic church, and of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement, a target of authorities since 1999.”

Radio Free Asia is a non-profit broadcasting corporation funded through the U.S. Agency for Global Media, an independent federal government agency.

The communists reportedly focus mostly on targeting “house churches” that are not members of the CCP-backed Three-Self Patriotic Association, which teaches people a CCP-approved version of Christianity because it views Christianity as a national security threat.

“It was a mobile facility, that could just set up in some basement somewhere. It was staffed by people from several different government departments,” Li said. “It had its own (CCP) political and legal affairs committee working group, and they mainly target Christians who are members of house churches.”

“They use really underhand[ed] methods,” Li continued. “They threaten, insult and intimidate you. These were United Front officials, men, women, sometimes unidentified, usually in plain clothes. The police turn a blind eye to this. You have to accept the statement they prepare for you. If you refuse, you will be seen as having a bad attitude and they will keep you in detention and keep on beating you.”

Li said that the basement that he was kept in was in a secret location where he could not see outside and lost all concept of time. He also said that he tried to hurt himself and thought of suicide often because he said that it would have been better than what he was subjected to.

“I couldn’t sleep; after you’ve been in there a week, death starts to look better than staying there. I bashed myself against the wall to self-harm,” he said. “One time in there, I was groggy and was trying to open my eyes but I couldn’t. Four or five of them grabbed me by the arms and legs and pinned me to the ground. They they injected me with some drug, and brought me back to consciousness.”

Reports on China’s persecution of Christians are hardly new. The Daily Wire highlighted a report last summer about how communist officials in China were reportedly forcing Christians to renounce their faith and remove religious symbols from their homes, replacing them with portraits of Chairman Mao and President Xi Jinping, or face being cut off from all welfare services.

A lawyer in China who said that he had represented a large number of Catholics that had been detained and tortured by communist officials told RFA that after the religious officials were arrested, the communist officials “just disappeared them, sometimes for five, six or even 10 years at a stretch.”

Former Lehigh Student Allegedly Poisoned Black Roommate, Wrote Racist Message In Dorm Room

A former Lehigh University student from China who was already facing ethnic intimidation charges against a black dormitory roommate is now accused of attempted homicide by trying to slowly poison him

Pennsylvania prosecutors said Thursday that Yukai Yang, 22, allegedly poisoned his Lehigh roommate, Juwan Royal, also 22, whose blood tested positive for the chemical thallium after he reported becoming increasingly sick. Yang, a chemistry major, gained access to the toxic chemical that is colorless, odorless and tasteless. In May, Yang was charged with ethnic intimidation, institutional vandalism and criminal mischief after he scrawled the n-word on a desk in the room he shared with Royal, who is black.

Yang later admitted to Lehigh University police he purchased several chemicals, but with the intent of doing harm to himself should he perform poorly on assignments and exams.

Assistant District Attorney Abe Kassis told NBC News Yang had surreptitiously been slipping the poisonous thallium chemical into Royal’s mouthwash, food and casual beverages he’d find unattended throughout their dorm room. In February, Royal told campus police he felt a burning sensation after drinking from a water bottle in his room. Much of the poison was allegedly secretly placed into food and drinks in their shared dorm room refrigerator.

Royal also became increasingly sick back in March with symptoms of dizziness, vomiting and uncontrollable shaking. During questioning about the racist note left in the room, campus police separately confronted Yang about Royal’s mysterious sickness. Prosecutors said that much like the slow process Yang was using to poison his roommate, Royal slowly realized what was happening.

“Initially, Mr. Royal was as dumbfounded by this as everyone else, because he believed they had a fairly cordial relationship as roommates,” Kassis told NBC News.

Yang is an international student from China who turned himself into police in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Thursday on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli announced.

Yang is no longer enrolled at Lehigh and his student visa has been revoked as he faces the slew of charges related to the alleged poisoning.

“The Lehigh University Police Department has worked closely with the District Attorney’s Office on the investigation and will continue to do so,” a spokeswoman for the school said in a statement to a local NBC affiliate. “From the outset, our concern has been the health and safety of the victim of these alleged behaviors and, as such, Lehigh staff and faculty have been providing support, services and assistance.”
