If, as the Democrats say, the Black Lives Matter protests were “mostly peaceful” then why is one rioter being fined a whopping $12 million? Oh, because his “peaceful” actions justified by his morality of righting the wrong of systemic racism, burned down a Minneapolis police station.

23-year-old Dylan Shakespeare Robinson has not only been given a four-year prison sentence; he then will be ordered to pay $12 million for his part in setting fire to a Minneapolis police station during the Black Lives Matter riots. Robinson plead guilty to an arson charge in December; his lawyer says “there is no realistic chance” his client will be able to pay the $12 million fine.

The Associated Press reported of Robinson’s case, “A federal complaint accused Robinson of lighting a Molotov cocktail that another person threw toward the 3rd Precinct headquarters on East Lake Street. In addition, Robinson and others allegedly tore down a fence that surrounded the building.”

Additionally, “Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, 23, was also ordered to serve two years of supervised release and pay back $12 million for damages that resulted from the May 2020 precinct fire” of which “three other people have pleaded guilty in federal court for their roles in the precinct fire and are awaiting sentencing.”

The BBC reported Robinson traveled 120 miles from Brainerd, Minnesota to participate in the riots. “Surveillance video at the precinct shows Robinson lighting an ‘incendiary device’ held by another person and later setting a fire inside the station near a first-floor stairwell, officials said” added the BBC.

Acting U.S. Attorney Anders Folk said in a statement, “On the night of May 28, 2020, Mr. Robinson chose to depart from lawful protest and instead engaged in violence and destruction The arson at the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct put lives at risk and contributed to widespread lawlessness in Minneapolis. With today’s sentence, Mr. Robinson is held accountable for his actions.”

Real estate websites Redfin, Realtor.com will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and Realtor.com both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports Steadfastandloyal.com.

In a blog post, CEO of Realtor.com David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on Realtor.com to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Realtor.com. Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.
