The federal government has lent out nearly $2 billion over the past two decades to help dozens of historically black colleges and universities upgrade their campuses or refinance debt. Officials at Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Ala., are lobbying the Education Department to have their $40 million loan modified or forgiven, arguing that the funds it got through the Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program in 2012 were secured with overly optimistic enrollment projections. "A lot of this has been left without the oversight that we've needed," said Rep.

Schools On Hook For Each Other

Created by Congress in 1992, the Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program encouraged the colleges to participate "as a coalition, as a collective, being willing to help other institutions," said Brian Johnson, who until last month was president of Tuskegee University.

The federal government has lent out nearly $2 billion over the past two decades to help dozens of historically black colleges and universities upgrade their campuses or refinance debt.

But only a fraction of the money has been repaid, oversight is limited and the lifeline promised to the schools, which have played a key role in educating African-Americans since the Civil War, has become more of an albatross for some.

Officials at Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Ala., are lobbying the Education Department to have their $40 million loan modified or forgiven, arguing that the funds it got through the Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program in 2012 were secured with overly optimistic enrollment projections. Barber-Scotia College in Concord, N.C., defaulted on its loan in 2005 after it lost its accreditation.

[If officials at Stillman College are telling the truth now, it would mean that they and/or their predecessors committed massive fraud in 2012, and should be prosecuted and imprisoned. Forensic accounting must also determine whether any of them embezzled some or all of the money.]

And four schools ravaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which in 2007 took out a combined $361 million in loans capped at 1% interest over 30 years, have paid back just roughly $12.4 million of it in the past decade and were granted a five-year forbearance period in 2013 when enrollment didn't rebound quickly.

"We've got to have much stricter underwriting requirements" to ensure that schools can handle the new debt, said Johnny C. Taylor Jr., president and chief executive of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which represents publicly supported HBCUs, and a member of the loan program's federal advisory board.

The program has long faced high delinquency rates.

The Education Department's fiscal 2017 budget request shows that the program had a target delinquency rate of 14%. Its actual delinquency rate-reflecting payments that were between 11 and 59 days late -- was 19% in fiscal 2012, and 36% in fiscal 2013. The budget paper doesn't include more recent figures for that performance metric.

Donald Watson, director of the federal loan program for 10 years, said at a May 2015 advisory board meeting that there were schools on his "watch list" because of concerns about impending financial trouble, and others that he described as "habitual late payers." The board hasn't met since then.
"A lot of this has been left without the oversight that we've needed," said Rep. Alma Adams (D., N.C.), who co-sponsored a bill this year requiring more reporting by the board and allowing the Education Department to provide financial counseling to schools that don't meet the loan program's requirements. "The schools that participate should be constantly assessed to determine whether they're on track for repayment."

Stillman hadn't been making regular payments for at least a year and a half before President Cynthia Warrick took the helm on an interim basis in January.

Stillman used its loan funds in part to refinance a loan that was used to build a new football stadium; it gave up the sport in late 2015, eliminating ticket-sales revenue that could have helped cover debt payments.

A fundraising appeal this spring allowed Stillman to make its April loan payment, but Dr. Warrick said it would need to increase enrollment to at least 800, from its current 570, to afford another installment.

Dr. Warrick said she has been in regular contact with Education Department officials and is hopeful that the repayment plan will be adjusted.

"It's in the nation's best interest to either give us a deferral or, if they evaluate the entire program and all of these schools and what we do for the nation, that we should get a bailout just like the automobile industry and the banking industry," she said.

[“What we do for the nation”? They do nothing but suck money out of the pockets of hard-working, white taxpayers.]

Education Department spokeswoman Liz Hill said the department doesn't go into details about specific schools' finances, but noted that penalties are laid out in loan agreements and failure to repay can affect schools' accreditation and ability to borrow in the future. Ms. Hill said schools "must be creditworthy to access this program," and not every school that applies is approved.

Morehouse College and Texas Southern University were rated as investment-grade by Moody's Investors Service at the time they got loans, but others were speculative bets.

"The federal government needs to be a little more particular in their lending," said Marybeth Gasman, professor of higher education and director of the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions at the University of Pennsylvania. "You should not be able to borrow anything unless you have a plan to pay it back.

The World Seems to be Getting Wise to the SPLC, but is It Enough to Kill Off This Vampire of an Organization?

 

 

The Southern Poverty Lie—Oops, “Law”—Center Faces Its Worst-Ever PR Crisis


By Paul Nachman
July 18, 2017, 9:36 p.m.
VDARE

The “Southern Poverty Lie Center”—that’s what late, lamented VDARE.com friend and talk-radio host Terry (“the Prisoner of South-Central”) Anderson called it. Officially—and to the journalists—it’s the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) founded and led by Morris Seligman Dees, Jr. But, in perhaps the SPLC’s worst-ever public relations crisis, the Respectable Right, and even some on the Left, are voicing disillusion. (There was even a critical twitter storm, #SPLCExposed, on Monday).

(Though of Scottish lineage and a Baptist, Dees’s obviously Jewish middle name—derived from the name of a merchant in Montgomery, AL whom Dees’s grandfather had admired—has been handy for fundraising mailers sent by his outfit to gullible Jews. This may have been what worked on my late father, who stubbornly donated to it for years and had its penny-ante “Certificate Of Merit” displayed on his wall, to my disgust.)


 

Here at VDARE.com, we call it the “$PLC,” as recognition that its nation-breaking agendas are also cover for its real concern: fund-raising and nest-feathering.

 

The Social Contract’s book-length anthology of exposés of the SPLC
 

Informed critiques of the $PLC are becoming thick on the ground. Of course, as VDARE.com’s own James Fulford just pointed out, they too often accept the $PLC-propagated myth that it was ever a “Civil Rights Stalwart, as POLITICO headlined its critique. But they still inflict damage. Thus recently the Respectable Right Federalist’s Stella Morabito rattled off 12 Ways The Southern Poverty Law Center Is A Scam To Profit From Hate-Mongering [May 17, 2017], including:
  1. SPLC Uses Emotion-Laden Images to Spread Innuendo
  2. The FBI Stopped Citing SPLC as a Resource
  1. The Center Is Advertising For New Revenue-Raisers
  2. SPLC Propaganda Seems to Encourage Hoax Hate Crimes

And on March 19, 2017 the centrist Real Clear Politics posted The Hate Group That Incited the Middlebury Melee by Washington Bureau Chief Carl M. Cannon, referring to Charles Murray’s $PLC-provoked experience in February at Middlebury College, but noting frankly how far the $PLC has moved from “civil rights”:

But with the Ku Klux Klan literally out of business, how was the SPLC able to frighten people into still donating? That’s where the AEI’s Charles Murray reenters our story, along with many other mainstream conservative groups. Scaring the bejesus out of people requires new bogeymen, and lots of them.
 

Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Lie Center
 

In recent years, you can find yourself on the SPLC’s “hate map” if you haven’t gotten fully aboard on gay marriage — or the Democratic Party’s immigration views. In other words, the Dees group classifies individuals and organizations as purveyors of “hate” for holding the same view on marriage espoused by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton until mid-2012.

Over the years, there’ve also been some on the Left who’ve noticed the $PLC’s cynical antics. One example: King of the Hate Business: With haters on the wane, what will the hate-seekers do?, by Alexander Cockburn, in The Nation (of all places) on April 29, 2009.

Another: the letter from Atlanta civil-rights attorney Stephen Bright to dean of the University of Alabama Law School Kenneth Randall, politely declining a request that he speak at a law-school event honoring Morris Dees. Bright crisply summed up Dees as “a con man and fraud.” And the letter was cc’d to Dees—oh, to have been a fly on the wall in Dees’s office when he opened that envelope! [The Southern Poverty Business Model, by Ken Silverstein, Harper’s Magazine Blog, November 2, 2007]

Today, eminences in the $PLC’s (anti-) hate directorate are the power pair of Mark Potok (right) and Heidi Beirich, with evident ambitions to expel hate from Earth, if not the Universe.

Articulate curmudgeon Fred Reed nailed them with his comment that “Liberals believe that we should all love one another, and hate those who don’t.” [Social Justice Warriors and Bubonic Plague: Is There a Difference?, FredOnEverything, March 30, 2017]

That the challenge facing $PLC’s dynamic duo might be daunting was suggested by Mark Steyn in a speech to the Federalist Society, recalling his tangles with “human-rights” officialdom/busybodies in several Canadian jurisdictions concerning items in his 2006 book America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It:

The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal regards it as an entirely feasible project to eradicate quote “hate” from society, even though hate is a human emotion that has beat in the human heart for all eternity.

[November 21, 2008; transcribed from the video by PN. Emphasis added]

Samuel Huntington made the same point more broadly in his 1997 The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order:

[There] is the ubiquity of conflict. It is human to hate. For self-definition and motivation people need enemies: competitors in business, rivals in achievement, opponents in politics. They naturally distrust and see as threats those who are different and have the capability to harm them.

[p. 130, Emphasis added.]

In other words, politics ain’t beanbag. It naturally generates strong emotions. The $PLC just seeks to pathologize one side.

How do the $PLC’s vigilantes against hatred and “haters” actually operate? A few years ago, I assembled some language regarding this that I’ve used in Letters-To-The-Editor, online comments, and the like:

The SPLC’s modus operandi is simplicity itself: Using its own criteria, which have a trigger level of essentially zero, SPLC names Person P a “racist.” Person P publishes an article in Journal X. Then if Person Q also publishes in Journal X, Person Q is a “racist” too. It’s an open-and-shut case of guilt by association.

In recent years, SPLC has been tarring as “hate groups” organizations advocating systematic enforcement of our immigration laws and reduced legal immigration — e.g., the Federation for American Immigration Reform [FAIR]. Poll after poll shows that huge majorities of Americans agree with FAIR, but the SPLC would put this vast swath of public policy, with its enormous implications for our national future, out of bounds for public discussion.

Meanwhile the SPLC shows no heartburn over MEChA (Spanish acronym for the Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan, with Aztlan the mythical ancestral home of the Aztecs), which has chapters at hundreds of American colleges and high schools nationwide. MEChA’s governing document, El Plan Espiritual de Aztlán, includes such ethnocentrisms as “We are a bronze people with a bronze culture.” And the group’s motto is “Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada” (“For our Race, everything, outside our Race, nothing”). That’s apparently too brazen to attract SPLC’s attention as it sleuths everywhere for “white supremacists.”

Here’s an example, except that in this case it’s two organizations tied together by one writer, instead of the reverse. (Bonus: It involves VDARE.com!)

The writer is John Miano, a sporadic contributor here over the years; in fact, with his Ten Principles of Immigration, he won VDARE.com’s Fall 2001 contest for best advice to the president on immigration policy. John, whom I know slightly, is a computer programmer who quit that career to become a lawyer fighting the H-1B visa program that immiserates so many of America’s native-born technology workers. And, since 2008, he’s been a Fellow of the Center for Immigration Studies [CIS].

Of John’s 22 VDARE.com writings (count ’em, working backwards: here, here, and here), naturally most have to do with H-1B abuses (e.g. San Jose Mercury News’s H1-B Driveby [January 4, 2008] and Fred Barnes’s New Math On H-1B Visas [May 30, 2008]) or related corporate malfeasance (e.g. Obscenities, Chaos, H1-Bs—And High Reported Earnings: My Year With AIG [October 14, 2008] and The Real Reason Microsoft Moved Jobs To Canada – A Manager’s Convenience [July 26, 2007]).

Well, were any of the 22 about the racial and/or ethnocultural issues that reflexively provoke Point-And-Splutter hysteria at the $PLC? Here, here, and here are the three that come closest, and they don’t come close—check them out for yourself. (And all three were posted at least a year after the “indictment” to be described next.)

Nevertheless, $PLC’s Ms. Beirich, as part of what she evidently thought was an open-and-shut indictment of the Center for Immigration Studies, wrote:

Some at CIS have also written for a nativist hate site, VDARE.com, which is named after Virginia Dare, said to be the first English child born in the New World. They include CIS Fellow John Miano and board member Carol Iannone.

[The Nativist Lobby: Three Faces of Intolerance, January 31, 2009]

Clearly, what John Miano had actually written at VDARE.com wasn’t important. (The same is true for Carol Iannone; see her single contribution here at this link.) Indeed, there’s no hint that Beirich even glanced at any of those 22 pieces. Their sole significance for her “case” against CIS was their mere existence at VDARE.com—which Beirich labeled variously a “hate site,” a “hate website,” a “racist anti-immigration website,” in addition to a “nativist hate site.”

So our late friend Terry Anderson was perhaps a bit off when he dubbed $PLC the “Southern Poverty Lie Center.” It doesn’t necessarily lie, exactly. Instead it typically makes a hullabaloo over facts and ideas that it instinctively dislikes and then demonstrates an unwillingness—or perhaps inability—to think about them on their merits.

Let’s re-dub the outfit the “Southern Point & Splutter Center.”

MS-13 Gangsters Arrested in Connection to Long Island Slayings – No, Not Those Slayings, These Slayings!

 


 

MS-13 gangsters arrested in connection to Long Island slayings

The feds had arrested three MS-13 gang members suspected in the brutal killings of four young men on Long Island in April, according to a report. Investigators believe that the brutal El Salvadorian gang was behind the slayings because the bodies appeared cut by machete — the group’s weapon of choice, Newsday said. Investigators say gang-bangers Alexis Hernandez, Santis Leonel Ortiz-Flores and Omar Antonio Villata are responsible for the deaths of Justin Llivicura, 16, Jorge Tigre, 18, Jefferson Villalobos, 18, and Michael Lopes Benegas, 20 — whose beaten, lifeless bodies were discovered in Suffolk County park. The trio was arrested Thursday by the FBI’s Long Island Gang Task Force. Hernandez...

Breaking News: PC Republican “Reporter” Katherine “Kat” Timp Almost Got Something Right on Race!

 

 

Did you know that it’s “racist” to use hoses to fight fires?

Or to water lawns and plants?

Or wash cars?

That’s what black supremacist member of the King County Council, aka the “Clowncil,” Larry Gossett, has implied. Gossett asserted that it would be racist to hose down the human feces and urine that crazed thugs leave on the sidewalk every day near the King County Courthouse.
Councilmember Larry Gossett said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists [sic] [Judges complain it’s unsafe, unsanitary outside King County Courthouse in Seattle, by Christine Clarridge, Seattle Times, July 12, 2017.]
But PC Republican writer Katherine “Kat” Timp takes a different tack.

“Now, I’m not trying to diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, but Gossett’s concern here is nothing short of insane. I mean, seriously — who even thinks of such a thing?...

“But social-justice alarmism can do a great job of turning the clearly uncontroversial into an outrage, and often at the expense of basic logic and practicality. It’s not that all social-justice activism is bad, of course. It’s great to be nice, and it’s great to be sensitive, but an obsession with social justice and political correctness can make people’s brains start to malfunction — and I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a better example of that than this.”
If Timpf had a spine, she would diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, and would argue that all social-justice activism is bad.

Civil rights activists, up to and including Martin Luther King Jr., have for over 60 years been dedicated to destroying America and to politically disenfranchising, pauperizing, and physically destroying the white race. And “social-justice activism” isn’t even a euphemism for communism.

But this is Kat Timp we’re talking about here, who is writing for National Review, where only the declawed are permitted to wrote about race.

As I’ve advised Republican writers Jonah Goldberg and Michelle Malkin in the past, if you’re going to talk about race, talk about race. Otherwise, shut up.

I’ve seen Timpf parrot Marxist talking points on crime on Fox News, where she is a regular guest on The Greg Gutfeld Show, helping to drag Gutfeld down to her level, and make the show unwatchable.

She apparently claims to be a comic, though I can’t recall her ever saying anything funny, as opposed to saying something while wearing a cheeky expression.
 

Seattle-Area Councilman: Hosing Poop-Covered Sidewalks Might Be Racially Insensitive
By Katherine Timpf
@KatTimpf
July 12, 2017 7:45 p.m.
National Review

A councilman [sic] in Seattle is reportedly opposed to hosing sidewalks that reek of excrement near a local courthouse because he fears that it might be racially insensitive.

[He didn't double-qualify his statement. That's Timpf's own cowardice speaking.]

No, this is not a joke.

The area surrounding King County Superior Court includes a homeless shelter and other social-services organizations and has become an “unsanitary and potentially frightening” scene — one “that reeks of urine and excrement” — according to an article in the Seattle Times. Desperate for help with the disgusting environment, two of the court’s judges have asked the city to please power-wash the poop-covered sidewalks. That seems like a pretty reasonable request, but apparently, one councilman is worried that doing so might be a form of microaggression.

According to the Times, Councilmember Larry Gossett “said he didn’t like the idea of power-washing the sidewalks because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.”

Now, I’m not trying to diminish the struggles of civil-rights activists, but Gossett’s concern here is nothing short of insane. I mean, seriously — who even thinks of such a thing? I see people power-washing bodily fluids off of the streets of New York City (including streets outside of courthouses) all the time, and I have not once seen any of them being called racist. To be fair, this city does still smell terrible, so the power-washing plan might not be the perfect solution on practical grounds, but at least it’s a start. What else are you going to do — not wash them? Because I really, really reject the idea that leaving sidewalks covered with human bodily waste is the less offensive move in this (or any) situation.

Anyone over the age of three knows that if you see poop somewhere, it’s supposed to be cleaned up. What’s more, most little kids could probably also tell you that said clean-up is supposed to involve water. In fact, before this, I would have told you that this is probably the least controversial opinion in human history.

But social-justice alarmism can do a great job of turning the clearly uncontroversial into an outrage, and often at the expense of basic logic and practicality. It’s not that all social-justice activism is bad, of course. It’s great to be nice, and it’s great to be sensitive, but an obsession with social justice and political correctness can make people’s brains start to malfunction — and I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a better example of that than this.

This story was originally covered in a post on the Daily Caller.

Editor’s Note: This article originally referred to Larry Gossett as a city councilman. In fact, he is a member of the King County Council.

“In 2006, Officer Haney began tracking the movements of individuals affiliated with a worldwide Islamic organization known as Tablighi Jamaat, which is part of the global Deobandi movement. He continued working on the case in 2011 and 2012 while he was assigned to one of the National Targeting Center’s most specialized units, known as the Advanced Targeting Team.
 

 

“By March 2012, according to a government document previously obtained by Judicial Watch, the case had drawn the “concern” of the State Department and DHS-CRCL, because the Obama administration believed the case unfairly focused on Muslims. DHS argued that since Tablighi Jamaat was not a designated terrorist organization, CBP officers could possibly be violating the civil rights and privacy rights of foreign nationals who were affiliated with the group.

New York City’s communist Mayor Bill de Blasio and his flunky PC, James O'Neill, both lied about NYPD protocol. The Bronx DA’s Office later did likewise, in getting a kangaroo court indictment against Sgt. Hugh Barry for the crime of policing while white.

De Blasio, O’Neill, and the Bronx DA’s Office also poisoned the jury pool. Either Sgt. Barry will have to get a change of venue, or do what NYPD cops have long done, and opt for a bench trial, in which the judge is also the jury.

At the NBC link, there are several shameless videos of Bill de Blah Blah blah, et al., and 49 comments, most of them by cop-hating imbeciles.

If it looks as though the overwhelming majority of commenters are racist cop-haters, that’s because NBC’s thread Nazis deleted most of Sgt. Barry’s defenders.

What to Know

• Deborah Danner, 66, was shot and killed by a uniformed sergeant in her Bronx apartment Tuesday evening, police say

• The NYPD had been responding to a 911 call complaining about Danner, who was described as emotionally disturbed

• Police are conducting an investigation into the incident, including why a stun gun wasn't deployed

[As this report itself says, they already have their answer: Deborah Danner charged Sgt. Hugh Barry with a deadly weapon. Shooting her down like a dog was moral, legal, and according to the New York City police Academy, professional thing to do.]

The NYPD sergeant who shot and killed an emotionally disturbed 66-year-old woman at her apartment in the Bronx Tuesday after she charged him with a bat has been placed on modified duty as top city officials, including the mayor and the head of the police department, condemn the gunfire.

[They didn’t “condemn the gunfire,” they condemned the white cop. How do you “condemn gunfire”?]

Police Commissioner James O'Neill said after a breakfast in the city Wednesday that it appeared some NYPD protocol as it relates to emotionally disturbed individuals was not followed in the case of Deborah Danner, who was shot twice after police responded to her apartment building.

[Liar.]

"What is clear in this one instance, we failed. I want to know why it happened," O'Neill said. "We do have policies and procedures for handling emotionally disturbed people and it looks like some of those procedures weren't followed."

[Liar. There is no NYPD policy obliging officers to permit EDPs to murder them. Even if Sgt. Barry had violated procedure, it would have been highly prejudicial for Commissioner James O'Neill to weigh in.]

Mayor de Blasio said there had been past 911 reports regarding Danner, who had schizophrenia. Danner's sister, Jennifer, had been there many of those times to help authorities take Deborah to the hospital. She was there Tuesday, expecting police to help escort her sister out safely as they had in the past.

[Another one of those “harmless” schizophrenics, eh? Her sister tried to murder a cop.]

"She said she'd seen it done the right way and expected it to be done that way this time as well," de Blasio said. "You can only imagine the pain she feels having had to stand there and hear the shots fired and the recognition coming over her that she had lost her sister."

Both de Blasio and O'Neill pledged a thorough investigation. Officials will be looking into why the sergeant did not deploy his stun gun, for example.

Dozens of people called for justice for Danner in a march Wednesday night through the streets of Castle Hill.

[She got justice.]

"There's no justification for killing a 66-year-old mentally ill woman," one protester said.

[There's no justification for murdering a cop.]

"We're hurt, we're neighbors," another said.

De Blasio said the sergeant who shot Danner, an eight-year department veteran identified by the police union as Hugh Barry, was among the thousands of cops who received proper training as it relates to the mentally ill.

"Something went horribly wrong here," the mayor said. "It's quite clear our officers are supposed to use deadly force only when faced with a dire situation and it's very hard for any of us to see that that standard was met here."

[Nothing “went wrong.” It was a refusal-to-die incident. According to Bill de Blasio/Warren Wilhelm Jr., white policemen have a duty-to-die at the hands of colored criminals. Do white homosexual criminals also have a license to kill white policemen?]

"Deborah Danner should be alive right now, period," de Blasio added. "If the protocols had been followed, she would be alive. It's as simple as that."

The state attorney general's office said on Wednesday that it was reviewing the shooting to determine if it fell under a 2015 executive order assigning Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as the case's special prosecutor.

Officers were called to Danner's seventh-floor apartment on Pugsley Avenue in Castle Hill after a neighbor called 911 to report a disturbance. Barry encountered Danner in her bedroom; she was naked and armed with scissors, officials said. He persuaded her to put down the scissors but as he was coaxing her out of the room, she picked up the baseball bat and charged him.

That's when Barry fired two shots from his service gun, officials said. Danner was struck twice in the torso. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Danner's cousin, retired NYPD officer Wallace Cooke Jr., said that the officers responding to the call should have taken more care with the woman.

[Liar.]

"They have been here numerous, numerous times over the years," she said. "Debbie was sick since she was in college."

Cooke added, "they have to do a better job of handling mental illness."

[Liar.]

Ed Mullins, president of the NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association, said Barry was patient in trying to deescalate the situation. He said Barry was trying to convince Danner to leave the bedroom in a peaceful manner when she grabbed the bat, ignored his demands to drop it, and aimed the weapon at his head.

"Fearing for his own life, as well as the lives of others, Sgt. Barry fired two shots from his service weapon and mortally wounded Ms. Danner," Mullins said in a statement. "He immediately ordered medical treatment for her, unfortunately to no avail. Sgt. Hugh Barry, an eight-year department veteran with an exemplary record, took immediate charge of the situation. As a frontline supervisor, it is his responsibility to do so."

Mullins said "police work is not an exact science" and Barry had to make a split second decision. De Blasio -- and others -- say he made the wrong call. The mayor says NYPD training calls for isolation and containment of mentally ill patients; Barry should have held the woman at bay, protecting her, himself and the other officers at the scene, until members of the Emergency Services Unit arrived, he says.

[“[P]rotecting her” from what? Deborah Danner was in no danger; she was the danger.]

Barry has been the subject of two lawsuits in 2010 and 2011 alleging brutality, according to court records. The first was settled for $25,000 and the second for $10,000.

[What a cheap shot. $10,000 and $25,000 are bare minimum frivolous lawsuits. The low sums mean that the plaintiffs had absolutely nothing on Sgt. Barry, and the city settled, because it was cheap and easy.]
 

De Blasio Says Deborah Danner Should Still Be Alive

[No, she shouldn’t. She tried to take a life, and for that, she deserved to die. This is a zero-sum game. Either Danner was going to grievously wound or murder Sgt. Barry, or he was going to kill her. If de Blasio and O’Neill said Danner should be alive, that means they granted her the right to maim or murder Sgt. Barry. It’s that simple. ]

Democratic State Sen. Ruben Diaz said the shooting was indefensible.

"To me, it is very difficult to understand how a woman who is [66] years old and has emotional problems should have to die like this, especially if there are four or five police officers in the room with her," he said in a statement. "This elderly woman was known to the police department, yet the officer involved in this shooting failed to use discretion to either talk her down from her episode or, barring that, to use his stun gun."

[Yet another liar is heard from.]

Diaz says officers need to better trained in dealing with mentally ill people and that if they must shoot, to shoot in the leg.

[Diaz is not only a liar, but he’s a moron and evil, too. “Better-trained” means that cops should be taught to be so inhibited that they get killed by black and Hispanic cut-throats.]

De Blasio acknowledged the need for better training Wednesday. He also said the "tragic" case underscores the importance of addressing mental health issues as early as possible and putting more efficient government systems in place to provide consistent support to decades-long sufferers like Danner.

"We're dealing with human beings. Human beings sometimes make mistakes. Our job is to minimize those mistakes as much as possible," de Blasio said.
