Kim Foxx Texts Show She Lied About Her Recusal While Pressuring Prosecutors Over Smollett

Earlier this morning, RedState writer Elizabeth Vaughn posted on newly obtained texts showing that Kim Foxx described Jussie Smollett as a “washed up celeb who lied to cops.” That’s obviously pretty striking, as it shows an understanding just two weeks before dropping the charges that the case against Smollett was strong.

This message was included in a group of thousands of internal emails and texts released to the newspaper on Tuesday. On March 8, in a text message to her top assistant and fellow prosecutor Joseph Magats, she compared the case against singer R. Kelly to Smollett’s case. She believed the charges against Smollett were too harsh. She wrote:

“Pedophile with 4 victims 10 counts. Washed up celeb who lied to cops, 16 (counts). On a case eligible for deferred prosecution I think it’s indicative of something we should be looking at generally. Just because we can charge something doesn’t mean we should.”

There’s another aspect to this though that shows just how dishonest Foxx was about the situation.

You’ll recall that Foxx originally claimed she was recused from the case on Feb. 19th. After the charges against Smollett were dropped at the behest of Foxx, her office then claimed she was never really recused. It was just a “colloquialism,” per a statement put out.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx did not “formally” recuse herself from the Jussie Smollett case — she only did so “colloquially,” prosecutors said on Wednesday…

…Top aide Robert Foley released a separate statement, saying Foxx “had conversations with a family member of Jussie Smollett about the incident and their concerns and facilitated a connection to the Chicago Police Department, who were investigating the incident.”

But Ellis clarified that Foxx’s recusal “was a colloquial use of the term rather than in its legal sense.”

That never really passed muster. How do you recuse yourself but not really recuse yourself? It made no sense on it’s face.

Now we have an answer. In the text message chain obtained via a FOIA request of Foxx’s office, it’s clear that Foxx herself thought she was recused at the time.

But in March 8 text messages released Tuesday as part of a FOIA request from The Post and other outlets, Foxx tells First Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Joe Magats, who took over the case for her, that “I’m recused” — then went on to complain that the “Empire” star had been charged with too many crimes.

“Sooo …… I’m recused, but when people accuse us of overcharging cases … 16 counts on a class 4 becomes exhibit A,” Foxx wrote at the start of the exchange.

“Yes. I can see where that can be seen as excessive,” Magats replied.

What you are seeing here is incredibly improper and perhaps illegal given that the law requires the appointment of a special prosecutor after a recusal. Clearly, Foxx felt she was officially recused on March 8th, as even in private conversations with colleagues, she’s describing herself that way. It wasn’t until the media firestorm hit, after Smollett’s charges were dropped, that Foxx’s office changed their story and asserted she wasn’t really recused. That seems to have come in response to growing questions about the legality of her non-recusal, recusal.

Furthermore, you can see in more of the texts just how hard Foxx was leaning on prosecutors to do her bidding despite being “recused” at the time.

“Just because we can charge something doesn’t mean we should.”

“Agreed,” Magats answered. “I’ll get with Risa and Jim. With him taking over we can take a hard look at how we charge the cases and get it to something that covers what needs to be covered without being excessive and ultimately pointless.”

He was likely referring to Assistant State’s Attorney Risa Lanier, though it was not immediately clear who Jim is.

“Yeah…it’s not who we want to be,” Foxx responded.

To which Magats replied: “For sure.”

Magats is certainly not innocent in this either, as he appeared eager to follow Foxx’s lead even though Foxx herself was telling him she was recused from the case. There appeared to be no actual standards within the State Attorney’s office.

Instead of being concerned with justice, Foxx was one tracked on making sure Smollett was let off easy because to have him pay for his crimes is “not who we want to be.” In fact, it appears Foxx dealt with a bit of pressure of her own in regards to Smollett, as several groups sent letters of support for Smollett just days before the charges were dropped. One of those was of course Jesse Jackson’s “Rainbow Push Coalition,” which Foxx has deep ties to.

The trove of documents released also shows that, two days before charges were dropped, prosecutors received letters of support for Smollett from the Black AIDS Institute, Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition and The City Lights Orchestra, citing his activism and community service.

The level of corruption being shown here throughout the timeline of events is pretty incredible. She lied about her recusal multiple times, in multiple ways, all while pressuring prosecutors to let Smollett off the hook weeks before the charges were even dropped. Then, when the pressure ratcheted up over her handling of the situation, she ran right to Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push Coalition for protection. What does that tell you about how intertwined those partisan, special interest groups were in the decision? It’s a stunning example of the ongoing corruption which exists throughout Chicago’s government.

We still haven’t heard anything from the FBI investigation of her office, nor on whether Smollett will face federal charges. Meanwhile, the city of Chicago is currently suing Smollett for $130k in investigative costs they adsorbed looking into his hate crime hoax. At this point, a win in civil court is probably as much justice as we’ll see in this case. That says nothing good about Foxx, Chicago, or their governance.

State’s Attorney Kim Foxx Refers to Jussie Smollett As ‘Washed Up Celeb Who Lied To Cops’ in Newly Revealed Text Message

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-4-620x434 State’s Attorney Kim Foxx Refers to Jussie Smollett As ‘Washed Up Celeb Who Lied To Cops’ in Newly Revealed Text Message Social Justice rahm emmanuel racism R. Kelly law Kim Foxx Jussie Smollett Joseph Magats Inconsistency Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story Fake Hate Crimes crime corruption Chicago Police Department Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

 

In a newly revealed text message obtained by The Chicago Tribune in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx calls Jussie Smollett a “washed up celeb who lied to cops.” This was written two weeks prior to her abrupt decision to drop all charges against him – and after she had recused herself from the case.

Smollett was charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct on suspicion of staging a Jan. 29 hate crime attack on himself.

This message was included in a group of thousands of internal emails and texts released to the newspaper on Tuesday. On March 8, in a text message to her top assistant and fellow prosecutor Joseph Magats, she compared the case against singer R. Kelly to Smollett’s case. She believed the charges against Smollett were too harsh. She wrote:

“Pedophile with 4 victims 10 counts. Washed up celeb who lied to cops, 16 (counts). On a case eligible for deferred prosecution I think it’s indicative of something we should be looking at generally. Just because we can charge something doesn’t mean we should.”

On March 3, Magats texted Foxx to notify her that he had given Foxx’s phone number to Michael Avenatti, who was planning to represent the Nigerian brothers whom Smollett had hired to “commit the assault.”

“…….. so Michael Avenatti reached out. Apparently he’s coming in to represent the Nigerian brothers in Smollet. I gave him your office number.”

Foxx announced that she had recused herself from the case on February 19th. After the decision was made to drop charges against Smollett, she revealed that she had never “formally” recused herself. This move sparked outrage from Chicago Police Department officials, Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and most Americans.

In a statement obtained by USA TodayFoxx said “After the indictment became public, I reached out to Joe to discuss reviewing office policies to assure consistencies in our charging and our use of appropriate charging authority. I was elected to bring criminal justice reform and that includes intentionality, consistency, and discretion. I will continue to uphold these guiding principles.”

Whaaat?

According to the Chicago Tribune, the text messages indicated that prosecutors informed the Chicago Police Department only moments before the charges were dropped.

Two Arrested in Alleged MAGA Hat Attack – You Won’t Believe Where They Were Caught

Alleged MAGA hat victim Atsu Nable. Screen grab via Fox 5 DC.

Though it’s been a few weeks since I’ve written about alleged attacks on MAGA hat wearers, that doesn’t mean the harassment and assaults have stopped happening.

The latest reported incident comes out of Germantown, Maryland, and involves a man who immigrated from Togo, West Africa to America in 2007:

On Saturday afternoon, police say a Germantown man was out enjoying the warm weather and walking through his neighborhood when he says two men walked up and became outraged by the hat that he was wearing. He says he was shocked when one of the men allegedly hit him from behind.

“I was like, ‘Why are you doing this?’ They said, ‘No, the hat,’ and they started punching me on my head.” Atsu Nable told FOX 5 Monday.

[…]

Nable says he came to the United States legally from Togo in West Africa in 2007 and is now a U.S. citizen. He says he has supported the Republican Party and President Donald Trump from the beginning, attending campaign events and even volunteering during Trump’s inauguration.

According to the Montgomery County PD, the suspects fled to a basketball court after knocking Nable to the ground and robbing him, and tried to hide themselves among children (h/t: PJM‘s Debra Heine):

Officers from the 5th District responded to the area to assist the victim and search for the suspects. Officers spotted the two suspects attempting to hide among a group of children playing basketball. The suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Central Processing Unit where they were charged accordingly.

Cowards.

Watch Fox 5 DC‘s full report below:

This alleged attack comes on the heels of one Red State‘s Brandon Morse wrote about last week involving a white woman in San Diego who went nuts on a Mexican woman who wore a MAGA hat.

No word yet on either of these alleged attacks on minority MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters from actress/activist Alyssa Milano, who declared earlier this year that the MAGA hat was the “new white hood.”

Onward, Hancock – and the delusion of leadership candidates retreating to their comfort zone

James Frayne is Director of Public First and author of Meet the People, a guide to moving public opinion.

Reading Matt Hancock’s piece in the Sunday Times a couple of weekends ago previewing Onward’s interesting new publication, Generation Why, and watching a clip of his speech at the publication’s launch, reminded me why I gave up talking to people in politics about football nearly 20 years ago.

A weird link? Let me explain. There comes a time when, despite theoretically sharing an interest in the same subject, you have so little actual shared experience of that subject that it becomes impossible to have any sort of meaningful conversation about it. You might as well be talking to each other in a foreign language.

As a youth of 16 or 17, playing at the bottom of the non-league pyramid, my favourite place to play was Heanor Town. For those that don’t know the East Midlands, Heanor is a small town in the North of Derbyshire. The football pitch was located at the top of the slope of the cricket pitch. While badly sloped, the pitch was impeccably cut whatever the weather (usually cold or freezing), the floodlights worked, and the dressing rooms had the intense smell of deep heat. Most importantly, the locals absolutely loved football and sport in general. Heanor was a football town.

When you talked to the locals about football, they didn’t just talk about Man Utd or Derby or Forest; of course, they did talk about them, but they’d be as happy talking about the last game against Kimberley Town, or Jeff Astle’s last song on Fantasy Football, or how Notts County fans moaned all the time. In short, when talking about football there was a shared understanding that you were talking about the game as a whole. It was expected that everyone knew practically everything there was to know about the game since they were a child – about players, fans, grounds, songs, old kits and all the rest.

When I arrived in London politics, full as it was with privately educated, mostly Southern staff that hadn’t played much, that shared understanding was totally absent. While many professed a love of the game, their entire way of speaking about it was alien. They’d talk almost entirely about the top of the game over the last few years since they became interested or – increasingly and weirdly – about football statistics. Nobody knew what the Anglo-Italian Cup was, let alone the FA Vase. And because nobody had really played at school, nobody knew what it was like to get hit on the thigh with a Mitre Multiplex in January. The Fast Show’s “I love football” sketch was no longer an amusing parody, but reality. Talking about football was a bizarre and depressing experience. So I stopped.

Which takes me back to Hancock’s article and speech. In giving advice to the Conservatives in appealing to the young, he wrote: “First, we need to get our tone right. Sometimes Conservatives can sound, as Ruth Davidson succinctly put it, a bit ‘dour’. Of course, it’s our job to be the pragmatists, but nobody wants to hang out with the person always pointing out the problems, rather than the one hopeful about the solutions…” At the event, he said:  “As well as delivering better economic prospects for people, we’ve got to sound like we actually like this country. We’ve got to patriots for the Britain of now, not the Britain of 1940. And enough about being just comfortable with modern Britain, we need to champions of modern Britain.”

Just as I found it increasingly difficult to relate to most of the privately-educated, metropolitan Conservatives talking about football, hearing this, I found myself similarly thinking that I have literally nothing in common with the same sorts of people’s views on politics. It’s as if we’ve grown up in entirely different worlds. Honestly, how can anyone think that the British people are collectively optimistic, happy-go-lucky, and modernity-obsessed? How can anyone seriously think that this is the best way to engage with people? How can they imagine themselves walking into the average pub, shopping centre or call centre canteen and connecting with ordinary people with such a case? 

Ordinary people don’t want to hear about 1940 or about life before large-scale immigration; most are happy with the people they live amongst. But they also emphatically don’t want to hear politicians droning on about how great the future is going to be and how technology and 3D printing is going to change everything for the better. It’s just not how they think about the world and not how they talk about it.

Look at what most working class and lower middle class people really think about things – those that make up the bulk of electorate. They think: that the economy is, at best fine, but that they see little of the benefits of growth; that long-term careers are a relic of the past; that good pensions have gone and that a long retirement is just a dream; that home ownership is increasingly unattainable; that the cost of living is too high; that their town centres are boring; that the NHS is over-burdened and under-funded and might fail them when the time comes; that crime is rising and police numbers are falling; that their savings will get raided to pay for social care; that childcare is ruinously expensive; and they think that politicians are out of touch thieves. While this is more prevalent amongst the old in provincial England, it’s actually common everywhere.

Why get so worked up over one little speech and an article? Because it’s clear that the Conservative Party is preparing to return to its recent comfort zone – using claims of a broad appeal to the young, which would be reasonable, to justify an appeal to the tiny number of successful, highly affluent, urban voters who are basically like those at the top of the Party. It’s dressed up as daring and confrontational, but is in fact just about following a path of least-resistance in the Party, while making those that make the case feel good about themselves. If Hancock is so sure this plays well, Heanor are home to Gedling Miners Welfare on Saturday. I’m sure they’d love to hear from him.

Louisiana Woman’s Boyfriend of 6 Years Says He Wants to Break Up. She Tries to Beat Him to Death With His Prosthetic Leg

She Tries to Beat Him to Death With His Prosthetic Leg Uncategorized Not Today Internet NEW ORLEANS michelle jackson lousiana jefferson parish correctional center Front Page Stories Featured Story crime Allow Media Exception

 

 

Relationships are hard. But sometimes, breaking up is even harder.

Just ask the now-ex-boyfriend of 58-year-old Michelle Jackson.

On February 11th, the New Orleans woman was at home downing gin with her boo when he dropped a bomb on her: He wanted to date someone else.

Bad move.

At some point, the Man With Horrible Timing fell into a deep slumber.

At around 1 a.m., he was wakened by a frantic relative of Michelle’s. The 59-year-old discovered he’d been thrashed — there was a large cut on his head, and he was covered in blood. One of his fingers was swollen.

The reason? While he sawed logs, Michelle had taken her former sweetheart’s prosthetic leg and viciously beaten him with it.

She’d confessed to her family and fled the home — because she believed she’d killed him.

U.S. Marshals arrested Michelle at her house Wednesday. She’s currently practicing her swing at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center, where’s she’s being held without bond.

The man’s lucky to be alive; thank goodness he didn’t have a hook.

Happy Tax Day, All.

Of course, this is America.  EVERY day is Tax Day.

Please – raise your hand if you think we aren’t paying enough taxes on enough things.

I don’t see a whole lot of hands.

In addition to income taxes, We the People pay taxes (or fees, which are taxes) on-and/or-for most or all of the following:

Property, sales, marriage licenses, schools, vehicles, recreational vehicles, drivers’ licenses, vehicle license plates, fishing licenses, hunting licenses, business licenses, personal license fees, waste management, water, cigarettes, courts, dogs, cats, gifts, Social Security, Medicare, self-employment, unemployment, gifts, estates, gasoline, biodiesel, gun ownership, highway tolls, hotels, imports, individual health insurance, insect control, government inspections, library cards, liquor, luxuries, parking, passports, flights, sports stadiums, general service charges, government park entry, tanning, tires….

Sadly, this is by no means a comprehensive list.

We are constantly reminding tax-freak Leftists – they are free to send governments at all levels as much additional money as they wish.

Nigh none ever do.

Because Leftists are titanic hypocrites.

And of course, Leftists don’t like to leave things to voluntary chance.  They much prefer mandates.

Leftists like government pointing guns at you – and demanding you do exactly what they say.

Which is what we are currently witnessing in Washington with regard to the Internet.

Since the federal government rightly privatized the Web in the mid-1990s, the frigging thing has exploded outward and upward.

The Internet has become a free speech-free market Xanadu.  Going from “What’s that?” – to 1/6th of our $18-trillion-per-annum economy.

A fundamental element of the Web’s privatization – was the uber-light regulatory imposition chosen at that time.  The government…basically left the Internet alone.

When government leaves something alone – greatness ensues with monotonous regularity.

The Internet is a quarter-century’s worth of quintessential private sector success.  What happens when (relatively) free people are left to freely associate as they wish – commercially and otherwise.

The Left’s response to this?  Let’s undo ALL of this massive success – and jam a giant bunch of government down our Web-surfing throats.

Bicameral Democratic Leaders Unveil Save The Internet Act

The Donkeys’ bill would stuff the expansive, ever-expanding Web – into 1934 landline telephone law.

Which would absolutely mean the Web – would stop expanding and being expansive.  And implode – all the way down to landline telephone size.  Which as we know – is comparatively infinitesimal.

The less-discussed portion of the Democrats’ inane awfulness – is taxes.

There aren’t taxes directly upon your Internet access – shocker, I know.  Because Republicans permanently banned them.

So Democrats are looking to tax the Internet – by pretending it’s a phone.

If the Democrats impose telephone law on the Internet – they can then impose telephone taxes on the Internet.  And we pay a whole lot of telephone taxes.

There are various excise taxes.

There’s the 911 tax.  Except:

911 Taxes Don’t Fund 911 Service

Because of course.

And then there’s…the Mother of All Taxes: The Universal Service Fund (USF).

The USF varies by yearly quarter – but it is always a HUGE percentage.

Quarter Two of 2019 – it is 18.8%  Down from 20% in Quarter One.

Since 2015, the average USF tax rate is 18.3%.

Now, imagine your monthly Internet bill – with an extra near-20% on top.  Going right to the government.

You should – because Democrats are.

Please – raise your hand if you think this new massive tax on your Internet service is a good idea.

Because we aren’t paying enough taxes on enough things.

I don’t see a whole lot of hands.

Javid’s speech on knife crime: “We cannot afford to leave anyone behind.”

This is the full text of a speech delivered today by Sajid Javid, the Home Secretary.

Today, we’re standing here on the site of a disused pickle factory, next to a very attractive gasworks. In 2013 after a brief spell as a medical storage facility, new life was given to this old unloved warehouse now converted to a trendy events venue.

What we see here today is a thriving business, a cultural asset and a pillar of the local community.

A testament to the Olympic legacy of London 2012, this building speaks to the optimism of those games and the story of regeneration across East London.

We have seen the undoubted benefits of this legacy. Investment, jobs, prosperity – all necessary to changing people’s life chances.

But the story doesn’t end here. In a way, I wish it did.

Economic prosperity can create the building blocks to stronger communities but that alone is not enough.

A closer look at those streets that are surrounding us will show you that our job is not yet done.

There are still too many places where that longed for prosperity has not reached, streets like the ones surrounding us, up and down the country that are instead dangerous and sometimes deadly.

On an almost weekly basis, we wake up to the news that another person has been stabbed, that robbery is on the rise, that serious violent crime is on the up.

This is not just a concern for those communities who are directly affected by that crime. It rightly causes national alarm.

A recent YouGov poll showed that for the first time, crime was a more important issue to the public than health. Last year saw a 14 per cent increase in homicides, a 15 per cent increase in hospital admissions for assaults involving a sharp instrument, a 17 per cent increase in recorded robberies.

This does not make for easy reading and that is exactly why it cannot be ignored. In my job as Home Secretary it is my duty to protect the public. And at the Home Office we work tirelessly to find the right policy solutions to tackle all types of crime. But what affects me more is my job as a father.

Take knife crime. Like everyone else I see the reports on young people feeling the need to carry weapons; it makes me worry about my teenage children.

Will they be hurt if they’re out in the wrong place at the wrong time on a night out? What if they get into an argument that then escalates?

I may be the Home Secretary but I’m not ashamed to confess; I have stayed up late at night waiting to hear the key turning in the door. And only then going to bed knowing that they have come home safe and sound. And like any other dad, when I watch the news and see the faces of all those young victims of knife crime I despair at the waste of those lives.

Many of those lost were of similar ages to my own children. So sometimes I cannot help but see the faces of my own children in the pictures of those victims.

I find it hard to detach the personal from the policy.

So I know that if we don’t feel safe on our own streets, if I don’t think they are safe enough for my children, or if we see our communities being torn apart by crime then something has gone terribly wrong.

Dealing with this scourge is not a simple question of turning around the statistics. The reasons for this rise in violent crime are many. Changes in illicit drugs market and the drive for profit has made criminal gangs take bigger risks and exploit even more vulnerable people. Alcohol abuse and the escalation of violence through social media are other factors that contribute to this picture.

The serious violence strategy the Government set out a year ago, has been a major focus of mine, especially trying to understand how we got to this point, and focusing on the immediate that are steps required to bring the situation under control.

The police told me that more powers, more tools and, yes, resources were needed to make a difference. That’s why I secured nearly a billion pounds more funding, including council tax, for police forces, in this year’s Police Financial Settlement.

That means more money to stamp out drug dealing for tackling serious and organised crime and for local police forces. It means that Police and Crime Commissioners are already planning to recruit 3,500 extra police officers and police staff. And that’s not all.

We are supporting the police by changing the law through the Offensive Weapons Bill, making it more difficult for young people to buy bladed weapons and corrosive substances. We know that acid is becoming a new weapon of choice for violent criminals. Now, if you are going to buy or carry acid, you’re having to have a very good reason.

We are changing the law in other ways too.I am trialling reforms that return authority to the police and give them the discretion that they need to effectively carry out stop-and-search. I know this is not universally welcome. I know that.

There is concern that in enforcing these powers, BAME communities will be affected disproportionately, but we must acknowledge that violence disproportionately impacts BAME communities too. And if stop and search rates drop too low, it does perhaps create a culture of immunity amongst those who carry knives. Stop-and-search saves lives. There are people alive today because of stop and search. I can’t say that clearly enough.

The Funding settlement and powers went a long way to supporting our forces, but senior officers told me that they needed more. More support and more funding.

They asked for £50 million to be immediately released to tackle the rise in serious violence. I doubled it. There is now £100 million extra. – £20 million from the Home Office, and £80 million in new funding from the Treasury. The forces facing the highest levels of serious violent crime will receive this additional funding for surge capacity so they can tackle knife crime in real-time, and not at half-speed.

And while all these efforts will make a big difference to our immediate efforts, the lasting solutions are not short-term. We know that crime doesn’t just appear. It has taken several years for the rise in violent crime to take hold, so we know that the answers cannot be a quick fix.

Before a young person ever picks up a knife, they have been the victim of a string of lost opportunities and missed chances. Any youth worker can tell you that gangs recruit the most vulnerable young people.That drug runners who travel over county lines coerce them into committing crimes.

These children are at risk, and we can detect early on who they are. We can do that. The kid that plays truant. The ones that get into fights. The pupils who struggle at school. And even though we can see the path to criminality, somehow, we still expect these children to make good life choices all on their own.

The sad fact is that many feel that they can’t lose the opportunities that they never had in the first place. What they and their families need is our help. It is exactly why I have launched a £200 million Youth Endowment Fund, to invest in the futures of this country’s most vulnerable youngsters. This fund helps steer them away from violence and offers them a better future.

This is not a one-off pot of money, the funding is spread over ten years, enabling long-term planning and interventions through a child’s most important years. But to address the root causes of serious violence we do need to go much further. We need to tackle adverse childhood experiences in the round, and better identify those children who are most at risk.

Children who grow up with substance abuse, with parental criminality, with perhaps domestic violence. I was lucky enough to realise the dream of every parent – to give your children a better start in life than the one you had yourself, but it could have been very different.

I grew up on what was dubbed by one tabloid as ‘the most dangerous street in Britain’. It’s not so difficult to see how instead of being Cabinet, I could have been taken in to a life of crime. There were the pupils at school that shoplifted, and asked if I wanted to help. The drug dealers who stood near the school gates and told you by joining in you could make easy money.But I was lucky. I had loving and supporting parents, who despite their own circumstances gave me security. I had some brilliant teachers who motivated me to go further than what was expected of me. I even had a girlfriend who believed in me and supported me despite my lack of prospects and went onto to become my wife. Thanks to them all I have built a better life for myself and my family. With their help, I suppose, I made it.

But I do not look back at my upbringing and see it as something in the distant past. The lessons of my childhood help shape the decisions I make every day. Shaping what I want to see for other kids who are just like me. That’s why I know the problems we face are not within the remit of any one government department. By the time a person becomes a problem for the police, it is often too late.

If we are to deliver meaningful change, and stop the violence before it begins, then the mind-set of government needs to shift. We need to instigate a sense of shared responsibility.

Take the frontline professionals, the teachers and nurses, the social and youth workers, all of them already working tirelessly to protect vulnerable young people and enhance the life chances of young people.

I have met teachers who have watched helplessly as one of their students falls under the influence of a gang. Nurses who, night after night, have seen teenagers brought into hospital with knife wounds. So I asked myself, what more can I do to help the people who work on the frontline?

That is why we have planned a public health approach to tackle violent crime. In practice, this means bringing together education, health, social services, housing, youth and social workers, to work them together coherently. It will enable those agencies to collaborate and share information. They will be able to jointly plan and target their support to help young people at risk, to prevent and stop violence altogether.

It is not about blaming those frontline staff for the violence, or asking them to do more. Far from it. It is about giving them the confidence to report their concerns, safe in the knowledge that everyone will close ranks to protect that child. A public health approach doesn’t mean passing the problem onto the NHS or a teacher. Rather, it means that serious violence is treated like the outbreak of some virulent disease. A national emergency.

Our legislation will place a legal duty on all parts of the government to work together not to apportion blame but to ensure there is no let up, until the violence itself is eradicated. We have already announced a new Serious Violence Implementation Task Force, the work of which will be driven by research and evidence starting with the review of drugs misuse led by Dame Carol Black. We already know that the drugs trade is a major catalyst of serious violence. That’s why we launched the National County Lines Coordination Centre in September. But the review will also bring home to middle-class drug users that they are part of the problem. They may never set foot in a deprived area. They may never see an act of serious violence, but their illicit habits are adding fuel to the fire that is engulfing our communities.

If we are to understand violence, we must also understand all its drivers and we in government are at the start of understanding how data can help us do that. Creating and understanding the causes and pathways to crime. Recent analysis by my own department found that the top 5 per cent of crime ‘hotspots’ accounted for some 17 per cent of the total volume of ‘acquisitive crime’. In plain English, crime such as burglaries and car thefts.

That is why the Home Office will be developing new proposals for a Crime Prevention Data Lab. We will be exploring how we can bring together information from the police and other agencies, to enhance our ability to make targeted and effective interventions.

And just as technology can help us prevent crimes, so too can it help criminals. Identities can be stolen online. Credit cards cloned from fake machines. Keyless entry systems tricked to gain access to your car. Criminals are smart, so businesses need to get smarter. I ask myself, if we can do this, what more can business do to help us?

Products and services must be designed to make crime harder to commit. The tech might be new, but the principle is not. In the 1980s, vehicle manufacturers and government came to the conclusion that you could design products to make it more difficult to commit a crime.

It is the reason a modern car comes with central locking, an alarm, steering locks and an immobilizer in all cars as standard. So I will be chairing a meeting with industry leaders, and asking them how they will help us in the fight against acquisitive crime.

Preventing crime can be as simple as fitting locks, alarm systems, and proper street lighting. This may seem like common sense, and in some ways it is, but it works. One trial in Nottingham saw the windows in council houses replaced with more secure versions. Their evaluation showed this intervention yielded a remarkable 42 per cent reduction in burglary from those properties. We have applied the same ideas to moped-enabled crime including a new standard of anti-theft devices on the mopeds themselves. And working with the Metropolitan Police to target hotspot areas, and design more secure two-wheeled vehicle parking.

This work led to a decrease of over 40 per cent of moped crime in a single year. So, we are now looking to apply this similar approach to a wider set of crimes. Just as we can design products to prevent crime, we can also design policy to shape the lives of young people to prevent criminality.

Changing the lives of young people will not be an easy task. Crime has a way of drawing in those who feel a little bit worthless. But when you belong to something greater than yourself, when you have something to lose, it’s not as easy to throw your life away.

Undoubtedly, of course there must be strong ramifications for those who commit crime – there must be. I do not shirk from my responsibility, as Home Secretary, to keep the public safe, whatever that takes.

I want us to be able to come back to this venue and know that, for these communities, something has changed. But to do that, we need to change how we see our young people.

No life is less important than another.

No future should be pre-determined by where you’re born, or how you’re brought up.

We cannot afford to leave anyone behind.

Playin’ Possum: Mississippi Deputy Escapes a Violent Death With the Oldest Trick in the Book

On Friday, Deputy Daniel Tatum of Marshall County, Mississippi was shot multiple times in a four-hour standoff.

During the melee, a gunman approached Daniel, who lay with bullets in his limbs.

In a moment of instinct, he played possum.

The whole situation began with a traffic stop — 33-year-old Randy Vaught left a drug house with two friends. Seeing the men exiting the home, Daniel pulled them over. When Randy couldn’t provide his driver’s license, he sped off. He arrived at his mother’s residence and ran inside. According to the friends — who bolted — the three had just taken meth.

When Daniel followed Randy through the back door, he was shot.

After being struck in the leg, shoulder, and arm, Daniel lay helpless. Randy stood over him, firing twice more into his chest.

The smart officer played like he was as dead as a doornail, his bulletproof vest saving his life.

Convinced Daniel was dead, Randy forewent the otherwise-obligatory headshot.

At a news conference, Marshall County Sheriff Kenney Dickerson praised Daniel’s quick thinking, as well as the vest that stopped the bullets:

“That’s what, without any question, saved his life. No doubt in my mind and unequivocally had he not had that vest on he would have expired immediately.”

Randy later did go for a headshot — at himself.

He’s now a doornail.

Another day in the life of law enforcement.

And, in the case of Daniel Tatum, a really, really fortunate one.

“He was very, very, lucky,” Sheriff Dickerson noted.

Lucky indeed.

You can learn a lot from a possum.

Moving Forward from New York’s Infant Murder Law: Teenage Parents in New Jersey Slay Their Baby, Throw Him in a Dumpster

On Thursday, March 29th, Jada McClain gave birth at home. In the bathroom.

After cleaning the newborn boy in the shower, the 18-year-old placed him on her bed. She then proceeded to murder him by pressing on his chest.

After killing her child, she called her boyfriend — 19-year-old Quaimere Mohammed.

She told Quaimere she’d killed their baby, who she’d named Legend. She’d placed his dead body in a bag, wrapped in a blanket. And left it in the back seat of her car.

Jada picked up Quaimere, and the two drove to the beach and his residence. Afterward, they found a dumpster outside an apartment building in Asbury Park. Quaimere disposed of their slain son.

This, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.

The Asbury Park Police Department acquired surveillance footage of Jada’s Jetta pulling up to the dumpster around 9 a.m. Quaimere can be seeing tossing a bag into the receptacle.

On Wednesday, Jada appeared in court.

Texts between the parents were read by attorney Steven E. Nelson.

From Jada:

“I was the one who took his last breath. I had to do it alone, and that’s what hurts me the most.”

Quaimere’s reply:

“[It] eats me alive 24/7.”

She lamented she “didn’t even get to kiss him when he was alive.”

Jada’s lawyer argued that she was frightened an unable to afford an abortion.

Will Jada’s murder of her baby be looked upon in the future as just? If New York can murder her baby as it’s about to exit her body (here) — and if Virginia’s leadership endorses murdering the little boy on the bed (here) — how can it be said she is guilty?

Or maybe she is. And we all are. For letting such an ugly world come to pass.

For electing leaders who allow for such a thing. For failing to be an adequate voice against the worst humanity has to offer: harm to the most innocent among us.

Perhaps we’re all guilty.

As for Jada, she’s facing first-degree Murder as well as second degree Disturbing or Desecrating Human Remains.

Yet, it seems, she is the victim.

In her text, she lamented:

“[I] didn’t even get to kiss him when he was alive.”

Buckle up for this one.

On Wednesday, Highway Patrol was dispatched on a suspicious persons call to a rest area along Florida’s northbound I-75.

Trooper Daniele Poulin came upon a startling sight: three completely naked young black females.

The buck-nekkid teens explained they’d showered and were “air drying.”

That makes absolutely perfect sense. #Nature

A case of water and a bottle of soap lay on the ground.

According to an eye-witness account, the in-the-buff unbashfuls were standing outside applying suntan lotion prior to Trooper Daniele’s arrival.

Mid-questioning with the cop, the leafless ladies jumped into a Nissan Sentra and hightailed it outta there.

Fast-forward to a convenience store parking lot where the car was found. When a trooper attempted to arrest one of the now-clothed trio as she was exiting the store, the Nissan’s driver tried to run him over.

Next, one of the chicks hopped out of the car with a pink baseball bat and headed toward the officer. Another cop quickly rammed the Sentra with his patrol car. With all three lasses loaded back in their ride, a chase ensued.

Eventually, law enforcement’s stop sticks popped the vehicle’s right tire and a PIT maneuver ended the ordeal.

Or so the cops thought–

The liberal lamsters wouldn’t exit the sedan, so police had to break out a window. All three resisted, their arms intertwined. Each belligerent nudist fugitive had to be tasered in order to comply.

What the freakin’ heck??

The girls were ID’d as Oasis Hakira McLeod, 18, and 19-year-olds Jeniyah McLeod and Cecilia Eunique Young.

They were locked up in the Pasco County jail and charged with fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, aggravated assault, indecent exposure, and marijuana possession. Driver Oasis earned a DUI count on top.

Nicely done, ladies — strip butt-nekkid, bathe in the sun, exhibit your two-tone parts at a rest stop, skedaddle from the cops, take a swing at baseball battery, try to plow over the police, and fight ’em when they try to cuff ya. Get the shock of 50,000 volts.

I’d say that’s more than a day’s work, in the lives of America’s Craziest Nudists.
