Ann Coulter – July 25, 2018 – CENTRAL PARK RAPISTS: TRUMP WAS RIGHT

The city of New York released thousands of documents from the 1989 Central Park rape case last week, provoking more weeping and gnashing of teeth over Donald Trump’s full-page ads in four New York newspapers taken out soon after that attack with the headline:

“BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY.

“BRING BACK OUR POLICE!”

His ad never mentioned the Central Park rape, but talked about New York families — “White, Black, Hispanic and Asian” — unable to enjoy walks through the park at dusk. Of muggers and murderers, he said, “I no longer want to understand their anger. I want them to understand our anger. … They should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes.”

According to the media, the five convicted boys were INNOCENT — and Trump would have executed the poor lads! This is nonsense. They wouldn’t have been executed because the rape victim miraculously survived. Also, they weren’t innocent.

Let’s look at the facts of the case.

On April 19, 1989, investment banker Trisha Meili went for a run through Central Park around 9 p.m., whereupon she was attacked by a wolf pack looking for a “white girl,” dragged 100 yards into the woods, stripped, beaten with a pipe and a brick, raped and left for dead.

By the time the police found Meili, she’d lost three-quarters of her blood. Her case was initially assigned to the homicide unit of the D.A.’s office because none of her doctors thought she would make it through the night.

Of the 37 youths brought in for questioning about the multiple violent attacks in the park that night, only 10 were charged with a crime and only five for the rape of the jogger: Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, Kevin Richardson and Korey Wise. All five confessed — four on videotape with adult relatives present and one with a parent present, but not on videotape.

Two unanimous, multicultural juries convicted them, despite aggressive defense lawyers putting on their best case.

But the media have a different method of judging guilt and innocence. They don’t look at irrelevant factors, such as evidence, but at relevant factors such as the race of the accused and the race of the victim.

Unfortunately for Meili, she was guilty of being white, while her attackers belonged to the Brahmin caste: “people of color.” So, after waiting an interminable 13 years, the media proclaimed that the five convicts had been “exonerated” by DNA evidence!

DNA evidence didn’t convict them, so it couldn’t “exonerate” them. This was a gang attack. It was always known that other rapists “got away,” as the prosecutor told the jury, and that none of the defendants’ DNA was found in the jogger’s cervix or on her sock — the only samples that were taken.

While it blows most people away to find out that none of the suspects’ DNA was found on Meili, this is a sleight of hand. The trick is that we’re looking at it through a modern lens. True, today, these kids’ DNA would have been found all over the crime scene. But in 1989, DNA was a primitive science. Cops wouldn’t have even bothered collecting samples for DNA tests back then.

The case was solved with other evidence — and there was a lot of it.

On the drive to the precinct, Raymond Santana blurted out, “I had nothing to do with the rape. All I did was feel the woman’s t*ts.” The cops didn’t even know about a rape yet.

Yusef Salaam announced to the detective interviewing him, “I was there, but I didn’t rape her.” Even if true, under the law, anyone who participated in the attack on Meili is guilty of her rape.

Two of Korey Wise’s friends said that when they ran into him on the street the day after the attack, he told them the cops were after him. “You heard about that woman that was beat up and raped in the park last night? That was us!”

Taken to the scene of the crime by a detective and a prosecutor, he said, “Damn, damn, that’s a lot of blood. … I knew she was bleeding, but I didn’t know how bad she was. It was dark. I couldn’t see how much blood there was at night.”

Wise also told a detective that someone he thought was named “Rudy” stole the jogger’s Walkman and belt pouch. The jogger was still in a coma. The police did not know yet that a Walkman had been stolen from her.

Wise told a friend’s sister, Melody Jackson, that he didn’t rape the jogger; he “only held her legs down while Kevin (Richardson) f—ed her.” Jackson volunteered this information to the police, thinking it would help Wise.

The night of the attack, Richardson told an acquaintance, “We just raped somebody.” The crotch of his underwear was suspiciously stained with semen, grass stains, dirt and debris. Walking near the crime scene with a detective the next day, Richardson said, “This is where we got her … where the raping occurred.”

Santana and Richardson independently brought investigators to the precise location of the attack on the jogger.

Recall that, when all these statements were made, no one — not the police, the witnesses, the suspects, or their friends and acquaintances — knew whether Meili would emerge from her coma and be able to identify her attackers.

Sarah Burns, who co-wrote and co-directed the propaganda film “The Central Park Five” with her father (whose reputation she has now destroyed), waved away the defendants’ confessions — forget all the other evidence — in a 2016 New York Times op-ed, explaining: “The power imbalance in an interrogation room is extreme, especially when the suspects are young teenagers, afraid of the police and unfamiliar with the justice system or their rights.”

Far from trembling and afraid, as Burns imagines, the suspects were singing the rap song “Wild Thing” for hours in the precinct house, laughing and joking about raping the jogger. One of the attackers said, “It was fun.”

When a cop told Santana that he should have been out with a girlfriend rather than mugging people in Central Park, Santana responded, “I already got mines,” and laughed with another boy from the park.

One of the youths arrested that night stated on videotape that he heard Santana and another boy laughing about “how they ‘made a woman bleed.'”

They sound absolutely terrified!

In Burns’ defense, she knows so little about that case that she called the prosecutor by the wrong name in her op-ed.

The actual evidence doesn’t matter. Again, the victim was a privileged white woman (BAD!) and the perpetrators were youths of color (GOOD!). So the media lied and claimed the DNA evidence “exonerated” them.

This allegation was based on Matias Reyes’ confession to the attack — and his claim that he acted alone. His DNA matched the unidentified DNA on the jogger — proving nothing, other than that he was the one of the others who “got away.” He is also the “Rudy” who stole her Walkman, as Wise said at the time. How did Wise know Reyes — or “Rudy” — had taken a Walkman?

A cellmate claims Reyes told him that he heard a woman screaming in the park that night and ran to join the fun.

The “exoneration” comes down to Reyes’ unsubstantiated claim that he acted alone. Years of careful investigation, videotaped confessions, witness statements, assembling evidence, trial by jury and repeated appeals — all that is nothing compared to the word of an upstanding citizen like Reyes, a violent psychopath who sexually assaulted his own mother and raped and murdered a pregnant woman while her children heard the attack through the bedroom door.

That’s the sum total of the “exoneration”:  the word of a psycho.

Note that Reyes faced absolutely no penalty for his confession — the statute of limitations had run out years earlier. Before he confessed, Reyes had been moved to Korey Wise’s cellblock. He requested a transfer on the grounds that he feared Wise’s gang. All he had to do was confess — with no penalty — and he got his prison transfer!

Not even this monster’s self-serving “confession” can explain away the five attackers’ other crimes that night — vicious beatings that left one park-goer unconscious and another permanently injured. These attacks, the “Central Park Five” never disputed, and frequently admitted.

The SJW’s verdict: Award the criminals $41 million. Trump’s idea: Punish them.

And you still can’t figure out how he became president.

Death Penalty Resumes for Federal Prisoners: A.G. William Barr

We say:  thank God we have a president that seeks justice for innocent people, not the ideologues.  We still believe that the Death Penalty is a deterrent and authentic justice for all innocent Americans.  Other posts on this website reveal that ideologues like Pope Francis, Sister Helen Prejean, and the U.S. Bishops are against prison sentencing and prefer “restorative justice” that favors the criminal!

Trump Administration Resumes Federal Death Penalty, Schedules Executions for 5 Child-Killers

Attorney General William P. Barr has directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to adopt a proposed Addendum to the Federal Execution Protocol—clearing the way for the federal government to resume capital punishment after a nearly two decade lapse, and bringing justice to victims of the most horrific crimes.  The Attorney General has further directed the Acting Director of the BOP, Hugh Hurwitz, to schedule the executions of five death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society—children and the elderly.

“Congress has expressly authorized the death penalty through legislation adopted by the people’s representatives in both houses of Congress and signed by the President,” Attorney General Barr said.  “Under Administrations of both parties, the Department of Justice has sought the death penalty against the worst criminals, including these five murderers, each of whom was convicted by a jury of his peers after a full and fair proceeding.  The Justice Department upholds the rule of law—and we owe it to the victims and their families to carry forward the sentence imposed by our justice system.”

Is The Death Penalty A “Small-Minded” Rule of the Catholic Church?

From the Department of Small-Minded Rules.

We are Traditional Catholics.  We adhere to the old teaching that the death penalty is Just Punishment.

“Pope Francis calls for abolishing the Death Penalty and Life Imprisonment”

FULL TEXT

VATICAN CITY (CNS) – Pope Francis called for abolition of the death penalty as well as life imprisonment, and denounced what he called a “penal populism” that promises to solve society’s problems by punishing crime instead of pursuing social justice.

“It is impossible to imagine that states today cannot make use of another means than capital punishment to defend peoples’ lives from an unjust aggressor,” the pope said Oct. 23 in a meeting with representatives of the International Association of Penal Law.

“All Christians and people of good will are thus called today to struggle not only for abolition of the death penalty, whether it be legal or illegal and in all its forms, but also to improve prison conditions, out of respect for the human dignity of persons deprived of their liberty.  And this, I connect with life imprisonment,” he said.  “Life imprisonment is a hidden death penalty.”

Our response:  Special Note for Americans:  Disregard the Pope’s message re “improve prison conditions”; our prisons pamper inmates enough!  Heck, they can even obtain sex reassignment surgery!  Death Row inmates like cop killer Mumia Abu Jumal have fan clubs, a radio program, and write books.  See widow Maureen Faulkner’s website dedicated to the truth about the death sentence cop killer Mumia imposed on her  husband, Officer Daniel Faulkner – archived website.

 

The pope noted that the Vatican recently eliminated life imprisonment from its own penal code.

Our response:  The population of Vatican City is only 839 people.

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, cited by Pope Francis in his talk, “the traditional teaching of the church does not exclude recourse to the death penalty, if this is the only possible way of effectively defending lives against the unjust aggressor,” but modern advances in protecting society from dangerous criminals mean that “cases in which the execution of the offender is an absolute necessity are very rare, if not practically nonexistent.”

Our response:   Killers released from prison kill again and A list of murderers released to murder again!

The pope said that, although a number of countries have formally abolished capital punishment, “the death penalty, illegally and to a varying extent, is applied all over the planet” because “extrajudicial executions” are often disguised as “clashes with offenders or presented as the undesired consequences of the reasonable, necessary and proportionate use of force to apply the law.”

Our response:  The pope and the United Nations desire the U.S. to defer to other countries.  It’s the New World Order trending.

The pope denounced the detention of prisoners without trial, who he said account for more than 50 percent of all incarcerated people in some countries.  He said maximum security prisons can be a form of torture, since their “principal characteristic is none other than external isolation,” which can lead to “psychic and physical suffering such as paranoia, anxiety, depression and weight loss and significantly increase the chance of suicide.”

He also rebuked unspecified government involved in kidnapping people for “illegal transportation to detention centers in which torture is practiced.”

Our response:  Being a victim of heinous violence is a form of torture.

The pope said criminal penalties should not apply to children, and should be waived or limited for the elderly, who “on the basis of their very errors can offer lessons to the rest of society.  We don’t learn only from the virtues of saints but also from the failings of errors of sinners.”

Our response:  Okay, then let’s free the elderly priests who raped children from prison!

The pope said some politicians and members of the media promote “violence and revenge, public and private, not only against those responsible for crimes, but also against those under suspicion, justified or not.”

Our response:  If the pope is so concerned about public violence against criminals, then he needs to be reminded of the essential requirement in a civil society:  PRISONS!  Baffles the mind!

He denounced a growing tendency to think that the “most varied social problems can be resolved through public punishment . . . that by means of that punishment we can obtain benefits that would require the implementation of another type of social policy, economic policy and policy of social inclusion.”

Our response:  The pope wants us to invited members of ISIS and the Black Panthers to tea.  See “Radical Chic” by Tom Wolfe.  Using techniques similar to those of racist regimes of the past, the pope said, unspecified forces today create “stereotypical figures that sum up the characteristics that society perceives as threatening.”

Our response:  Is the pope implying that jihadis are not threatening?

Pope Francis concluded his talk by denouncing human trafficking and corruption, both crimes he said “could never be committed without the complicity, active or passive, of public authorities.”

Our response:  The pope is, at last, correct on this point.  Think Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Planned Parenthood, et al.

The pope spoke scathingly about the mentality of the typical corrupt person, whom he described as conceited, unable to accept criticism, and prompt to insult and even persecute those who disagree with him.  “The corrupt one does not perceive his own corruption.  It is a little what happens with bad breath:  someone who has it hardly ever realizes it; other people notice and have to tell him,” the pope said.  “Corruption is an evil greater than sin.  More than forgiveness, this evil needs to be cured.”

Our response:  How do we cure corruption?  Let’s invent prisons!

Shocking Admission by Sister Helen Prejean

“Heinous Crimes Deserve the Death Penalty”

Did she really say that?  Yes.

It is the first question asked by the interviewer.

Someone ought to inform the bishops and priests of her shocking admission.

Here is what she said verbatim:  click image to watch on YouTube.

sister-helen-4

Watch the Video.

In 2011, Sister Prejean was caught in a rare moment of uncharacteristic candor in a one-on-one interview caught on video. 

HOST:  “In your view could there ever be any crime that are so heinous enough to deserve death?”

PREJEAN:  “Maybe there are crimes that are deserving of deathBut the big moral question we have is who deserves to kill the person who did the crime?”


I can guarantee you that Sister Prejean has never admitted this at any of her thousands – yes, thousands – of public appearances advocating to abolish the death penalty over the last 3 decades.  Someone ought to inform the bishops and priests of her shocking admission.


We are Catholics who support the death penalty.

Bishops Campaign To Bring 200,000 Migrants to U.S.

US Conference of Catholic Bishops wants 100,000 Syrians admitted to US this year

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is calling for the U.S. to take in 100,000 Syrian refugees this year alone, with no regard for the fact that the Islamic State said last February that it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees, or for the fact that  an Islamic State operative recently boasted that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had entered Europe, or for the fact that the Lebanese Education Minister said that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country, or for the fact that 80% of the migrants who claim to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t actually from Syria at all, or for the fact that German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said that the Islamic State was sneaking into the country with the refugees and was active in the refugee camps. Why would these “refugees” think they had to come to Europe on false pretenses?

Dialogue This! Communist Mocks Christ Crucified

We are greatly appalled and concerned Trad Catholics.  A most blessed symbol of our salvation is Christ Crucified.

From CNA

He noted that during his life, Fr. Espinal [the guy who made the protest art] had sympathies with the Marxist interpretation of Liberation Theology, which at that time was widely popular in South America.

Taking a “hermeneutic” approach to the crucifix – one that involves an interpretive act of understanding with an emphasis on dialogue – the Pope made an analysis of the times, saying that Fr. Espinal “was an enthusiast of this analysis of the Marxist reality, but also of theology using Marxism.”

Read Fr. Malachi Martin’s expose of Marxist “theology,” The Jesuits.   It is an eye-opener and explains the background of today’s crisis in the Church.
