Dylann Storm Roof To Represent Himself

Remember Dylann Storm Roof, the psychotic little racist who murdered nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina? His trial was scheduled to start on November 7, but he was sent for a psychiatric evaluation, instead. As it turns out, he is sane enough to go to court and stand trial, so jury selection began yesterday. Young Mr. Roof is facing thirty-three charges, some federal, some state, ranging from hate crimes to murder.

In court yesterday, Mr. Roof told the judge that he would like to discharge his attorneys and represent himself. While appearing in court pro se may be acceptable in uncomplicated civil matters, it is not recommended for criminal trials wherein one faces the death penalty, which Mr. Roof faces. The verdict seems almost a foregone conclusion; he has all but confessed. Is it possible that young Mr. Roof already knows he will probably not like the outcome of his trial, and is already angling for another trial, later on?

Missing Wichita Baby

Seven day old Sophia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca is missing from Wichita, Kansas. Her father came home from work yesterday to find Sophia's mother, Laura Abarca-Nogueda dead and Sophia missing. There was a vehicle that had been thought to have been involved, but the vehicle and its owner has been located, and were not involved, so police have no suspects or leads. The FBI tipline is 1-800-225-5324. If you have any information or think you may have seen this baby somewhere, please call that number and let someone know. Below is a picture of Sophia.

Update: Little Sophia has been found in Dallas, Texas, and there are two suspects in custody.

Minnesota Murderer Cop Finally Charged

Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota pig who, in July, opened fire on Philando Castile and killed him during a traffic stop for no reason, has finally been charged with something called second degree manslaughter. His girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, streamed the incident on Facebook, for the entire world to see. Yanez not only was completely unconcerned about the innocence of Castile and Reynolds, he also did not care about the safety of Reynolds's four year old daughter, who was also in the car and watched the shooting.

While manslaughter is not as serious of a charge as first or second degree murder, there have been problems in the recent past in gaining convictions of these police officers who feel that a badge is a license to commit murder. For that reason, it was probably a better guarantee of accountability for for a black victim's life to charge the killer with a lesser charge, and at the same time, a better guarantee that this defendant will never prowl the highways as a police officer again.

Above is Jeronimo Yanez, who kept the peace by committing a murder in front of a woman and a child, in his police get-up; and Philado Castile, who, unfortunately, crossed the path of a racist cop who felt like pulling the trigger for no reason.

Should A President Understand The Law?

Bill Maher has already forced Donald Trump to produce his birth certificate. He also gave Trump an education on the first amendment. I, for one, will miss having a president who knows the law and understands the Constitution.

Elected Officials Should Pay Their Taxes

If your constituents are required to pay their taxes, shouldn't you pay yours, Laura?

Just A Reminder

Just to remind everyone of something, before voting. I stole the meme from Facebook.

How's The Investigation Going, McNish?

There's nothing like an elected official who abuses her position by cheating on her taxes!

Catholics Told To Vote For Racism

A Catholic church in San Diego, California is threatening its loyal members with an eternity in the underworld if they vote Democrat. Inside the foyer of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, some leaflets stating that Hillary Clinton is "under the influence of Satan" were found. While this is ripe fodder for comedy, it is also a pathetic attempt to scare innocent people and influence an election. So much for the quote of Jesus, himself, saying, "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and unto God, that which is God's." (Mark 12:17) The fictional deity is in obvious opposition to dictatorship and fear tactics. Maybe these Christians and their leadership should listen to him.

Lying Politicians

Above is the Politifact graph depicting the number of lies and truths told by various politicians, in proportion to all of their statements. After fact checking, President Obama is the most honest one to have recently run for president, followed by Hillary Clinton. Like it or not, Democrats have the market cornered on the truth in 2016. Remember the aversion Donald Trump had to fact checking for his first debate with Hillary Clinton?
