Rare robbery case brings cries of racism. The associated piss sure can write a headline can’t they.

Three young black men break into a white man’s home in rural Northern California. The homeowner shoots two of them to death

So far so good. Two out a three ain’t bad, but next time remember, sight alignment, sight picture and trigger control and you’ll be sure to get that third goblin too.

— but it’s the surviving black man who is charged with murder.

As opposed to the racist homeowner who is the obvious criminal here, right?

In a case that has brought cries of racism from civil rights groups, Renato Hughes Jr., 22, was charged by prosecutors in this overwhelmingly white county under a rarely invoked legal doctrine that could make him responsible for the bloodshed.

Well there’s part of the problem ya simperin’ idjut. If the law was invoked a little more often there might be fewer goblins running loose causing the bloodshed. I am however surprised that they haven’t blamed the gun yet. Must be something even juicer to go after.

“It was pandemonium” inside the house that night, District Attorney Jon Hopkins said. Hughes was responsible for “setting the whole thing in motion by his actions and the actions of his accomplices.”

Common sense from the District Attorney. Can’t let that stand unchallenged can we.

Prosecutors said homeowner Shannon Edmonds opened fire Dec. 7 after three young men rampaged through the Clearlake house demanding marijuana and brutally beat his stepson. Rashad Williams, 21, and Christian Foster, 22, were shot in the back. Hughes fled.

Hughes was charged with first-degree murder under California’s Provocative Act doctrine, versions of which have been on the books in many states for generations but are rarely used.

The Provocative Act doctrine does not require prosecutors to prove the accused intended to kill. Instead, “they have to show that it was reasonably foreseeable that the criminal enterprise could trigger a fatal response from the homeowner,” said Brian Getz, a San Francisco defense attorney unconnected to the case.

Still more common sense. Even a semi-retarded thug ought to know that people generally don’t cotton to having there homes invade and their family members “brutally beaten”. A “fatal response from the homeowner” is not only expected it should be damn well required. And here come the race baiters in three, two, one…

The NAACP complained that prosecutors came down too hard on Hughes, who also faces robbery, burglary and assault charges. Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty.

What’s the problem, they aren’t trying to get him to pay a visit to Ol’ Sparky. This way he gets to spend quality time in the California Penal system getting buff, doing quality drugs, and learning how to be a better criminal from the real pros. Sounds to me like he’s getting a lot better deal than his buddies.

The Rev. Amos Brown, head of the San Francisco chapter of the NAACP…

Which makes for impecable credentials to race baiting victimologists everywhere,

and pastor at Hughes’ church, said the case demonstrates the legal system is racist in remote Lake County, aspiring wine country 100 miles north of San Francisco. The sparsely populated county of 13,000 people is 91 percent white and 2 percent black.

Quick math quiz Reverend. Whats 2 percent of 13,000 minus two? Find that offensive and racist? Good. As soon as I hear you call the three thugs who committed the actual CRIME here what they are (or were, hehe), you know criminals, then I will listen to your blathering BS. Won’t necessarily pay any attention, but at least I’ll listen (I’m in a good mood).

Brown and other NAACP officials are asking why the homeowner is walking free.

Because he didn’t commit a crime maybe? Oh I forgot, he’s a white man who shot two black kids. How insensitive of me not to pick up on that. Of course he should be in jail, just for being white, let alone what he did to those pooooor innocent victims of The Man.

Tests showed Edmonds had marijuana and prescription medication in his system the night of the shooting. Edmonds had a prescription for both the pot and the medication to treat depression.

Which explains why the hoods broke in. They wanted the good medicinal herb, not the skunk weed they peddle on the street.

“This man had no business killing these boys,” Brown said.

Of course not. Just a few misunderstood yutes out to have a good time. How dare he interrupt the festivities.

“They were shot in the back. They had fled.”

This is a whole subject in itself. Without going into the exact math and science of recognition, decision making and reaction times, I will categorically state that it is indeed possible for a person to turn away from a person faster than that person can make a decision to shoot and pull the trigger. If you’re interested, check out Dr.Lewinsky and the Force Science Research Centers Tempe Study. This argument is a non starter for me. How the punks were shot don’t matter piss. They had invaded the home and beat a family member. He could have shot them repeatedly in the nuts with bean bag shells before he pumped two rounds into the back of their heads as far as am I concerned.

The district attorney said that race played no part in the charges against Hughes and that the homeowner was spared prosecution because of evidence he was defending himself and his family, who were asleep when the assailants barged in at 4 a.m.


Spared
prosecution! Leaving the condescending arrogance of that phrase aside for the moment, prosecution for what?! Now I know that Kalifornistan doesn’t have the Castle Doctrine and isn’t know for respecting an individuals 2nd Amendment rights, but self defense is still nominally legal there, ain’t it?

Edmunds’ stepson, Dale Lafferty, suffered brain damage from the baseball bat beating he took during the melee. The 19-year-old lives in a rehabilitation center and can no longer feed himself.

A beating that severe sounds like a real hate crime to me, except the victim was the wrong color that is.

California’s Provocative Act doctrine has primarily been used to charge people whose actions led to shooting deaths.

However, in one notable case in Southern California in 1999, a man who robbed a family at gunpoint in their home was convicted of murder because a police officer pursuing him in a car chase slammed into another driver in an intersection, killing her.

But I though it was rarely used. Sounds like it’s used a few more times than the BS headline and teaser would lead one to believe huh?

Hughes’ mother, San Francisco schoolteacher Judy Hughes, said she believes the group didn’t intend to rob the family, just buy marijuana. She called the case against her son a “legal lynching.”

As opposed to the illegal lynching your darlin’ son performed on Dale?

“Only God knows what happened in that house,” she said. “But this I know: My son did not murder his childhood friends.”

Said the next nominee for Parent of the Year. No, he may not have pulled the trigger, but he sure as hell created the situation which led to it. He broke into an innocent families home and brutally beat a 19 year old into a vegetative state. And his two “childhood friends” paid for that act, and the decision to commit the act, with their lives. Be grateful your son is alive and can feed his self, and shut the fuck up.

    First!!!!!! I am sick of people crying racism when things go wrong-it just gets on my nerves :em12: -thanks for the emoticons.

  2. LC Beaker Comment by LC Beaker

    As someone who resides (unfortunately) in the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia, I call bullshit. It’s common for DAs to use this law whenever they can. The last time I can remember it being used in my county was when the local DA charged a goblin with murder for the death of his buddy, who was cut in half with a shotgun at close range by a Liquor Store owner during an armed robbery attempt.

    The real tragedy here is that the third asshole managed to escape the scene.

    Hughes’ mother, San Francisco schoolteacher Judy Hughes, said she believes the group didn’t intend to rob the family, just buy marijuana. She called the case against her son a “legal lynching.”

    Two things. First, I love her outpouring of compassion for the kid who was schivoed with the baseball bat. Second, the fact that she’s a school teacher (undoubtedly a public one) is the strongest statement I’ve heard for home-schooling in a long time.

    So am I Mindy. I’m sick and damn tired of this racist shit. If you’re damn stupid enough to break into my house for ANY reason at ANY time of the day I AM going to shoot your ass and I don’t give a flying f*ck what color your epidermis happens to be.

    I’m also tired of these people thinking that just because of their skin color, they should be able to do whatever they damn well please and then just call Uncle Jesse and Big Daddy Al to pull their skanky asses out of the fire before they have to actually answer for the crimes they WILLFULLY committed.

    There are just some people out there that well and deservedly earn the “N” word to be used to describe them and their actions and attitudes. And those that disagree can just kiss my ass.

  4. Lady Heather Comment by Lady Heather

    I wish someone would kindly point out, and ask the NAACP why, when it comes to the 2 races, there is far more black on white crime than the reverse?

    Pity the homeowner didn’t send that 3rd thug to the Eternal Dirt Nap™.

    Here’s hoping the prosecutor stands his ground and keeps these charges.

    Instead of racism by whites, why can’t the NAACP focus on why so many young black men are in prison, and why said young men grow up without fathers in the home?

    Stop blaming “Whitey” for all your problems, take off your blinders, and work on solving the (moral!) problems in your own community, because frankly, I’m not giving much of a damn anymore. :em98:

  5. LC HJ Caveman82952 Comment by LC HJ Caveman82952

    That is one thing about Kalifornia, my home, I find interesting. Yes, goblins should be charged in the deaths of anyone committing crimes. Were someone to enter my home, injuring my wife or daughter my .45 would be sending some 230 grain hollow points his direction. Hopefully then the wife would be sending some double aught buck as an encore. One thing I love about my small town. We were recently involved in a no holds barred, tooth and nail seeking to eject a corrupt council and mayor. We succeeded, also saving our police department and chief as well. When the chief was sworn in,

    the same day

    , four felons on probation requested permission to move outside of city limits. The chief told me some folks want to kill him. I told him if he ever needs help…….hundreds of us would show up, armed.

    In a case that has brought cries of racism from civil rights groups,

    I guess since Jena, every time a black man is brought up on charges that The Greater Black Community thinks is excessive, it’s grounds for a social movement.

    I love watching hominids frowningly try to grasp the doctrine of Felony Murder.

    Tests showed Edmonds had marijuana and prescription medication in his system the night of the shooting. Edmonds had a prescription for both the pot and the medication to treat depression.

    You were well within your rights to protect your home, sir. What’s that? You had drugs in your system? That changes EVERYTHING.

    I’m not even going to go into marijuana’s properties as a pacifying depressant. That would just confuse the cavemen. Like so:

    “Only God knows what happened in that house,” she said. “But this I know: My son did not murder his childhood friends.”

    :em01: I love watching hominids frowningly try to grasp the concept of the legal doctrine of felony murder. “He…he…not really kill. But he still go jail? That not right!”

    Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty.

    Oh for Christ’s sake. Who cares, then? I’m not protesting the decision; my sporting side thinks that this it’s wrong to put someone to death (nowadays) in a case where the Good Guys pitch a shutout. But if they aren’t pushing for The Electric Colander, then why does anyone care about this bum? I can’t believe the National Huckster’s Brigade could give two extorted dollars about whether or not some homey goes up the river for an extra twenty years. Even if they “win,” the man is still going to jail for far longer than anyone will remember his name.

    Again, it must be that racism is now “in” as grounds for overanalysis of legal troubles that protected races might get themselves into. Remember when judicial “racism” was supposed to be about black people going to jail for crimes they didn’t commit? Now, apparently, it’s about black people going to trial for crimes they committed while they were only intending to commit lesser crimes.

    Excuse me…I’m still getting over the fact that this is happening in Kalifornia, let alone that it’s in San Francisco. :em94:

    I just don’t get the point of uninvited people breaking into your home may…or may not be considered a threat, particularly after brutally beating one of your family. If I walked into that situation, I don’t give a damn which way the bastard beating my no good kid is facing…he gets shot.

    I may have said freeze while simultaneously pulling the trigger. (If it was a good day)

    Lends a whole new appreciation for Pacheco Pass, Sir Chris. Leaving work in Gilroy, the one fifty-two never looked so good, especially Dinosaur Point, at the summit. All downhill from there, to sanity and the valley.

  12. Sir Christopher Comment by Sir Christopher

    i love it when San Luis Resevoir gets whipped up by the winds….looks cool

    bet you’ve seen that a lot.

    and the old oak trees and rock outcroppings on the Casa De Fruta side head towards the pass are so bitching and picturesque…

  13. LC HJ Caveman82952 Comment by LC HJ Caveman82952

    Yes they are, Sir Chris. You learn real quick to treat the one fifty-two with respect. That one big six hundred foot rock on the right at the bottom of the west side of the hill heading east…friggin’ awesome. I drive by the reservoir twice a day. Literally right next to it. The first time I saw it, blew my mind. The damn thing is huge, I read the largest reservoir in the country without a river flowing into it. It’s pretty low now, not a lot of rain yet. Say some four miles across when full. But it is beautiful……..and some mighty big fish have come out of there, fifty pounders. I attend the civil war reenactments at Casa, know it well, say hello to the peacocks wandering around the Chevron station. For what it’s worth, I gravitated to the Stars and Bars, spent a day with a unit, the daughter having a wonderful time until the cannon set off her asthma.

  14. Sir Christopher Comment by Sir Christopher

    yeah, i’ve seen that reinactment up in Half Moon Bay, and they use the original first house out there (Historical Monument) as the fulcrum of the battling

    when they got rid of the stop light out east of the dam, and you could just drive through to 5; that was a major improvement

    The People’s Republic of Kalifornia does have a variety of Castle Doctrine- not the full-on variety, but the laws on the books say that if an armed person makes a forced entry into your domicile (house, hotel room, etc) you can assume he is there to do you harm and shoot his ass.

    I’d like to answer Lady Heather’s, if i may: you’ll be told that crimes against the black community are much more insidious, and involve generations of white americans doing all they can to hold the brutha down. Go ahead and vomit, but that’s the gist of the answer from that sector. :em38:

    Folks,

    Why is it that EVERYTIME some black person commits a hideous crime, it is ALWAYS turned into a racist debate!? Didn’t these three f.cks break in, beat the young man to a pulp, terrorize the joint, then got what was coming to them for doing such!? YES, then face the consequences, the NAACP be damned. What, because you’re black you are suddendly beyond prosecution!?!? Whose racist now? His mom should face the ugly reality straight in the face, her son is a thug, a murderer, and should be put away for ever plus 30. Here’s compassionate for you, FUCK HIM AND FUCK HIS MOM!

    Agreed, too f.cking bad the third little turd got missed… More time on the range perhaps…

    And I’m sure the savage beating with a baseball bat was just a negotiation techique, and a perfectly understandable method of getting a fair price.

  23. AyUaxe Comment by AyUaxe

    Crap like this is THE reason racism against AAs is alive and well in this country. If AAs will rally to any vicious criminal’s aid, solely based on skin color, why shouldn’t everyone else make their judgments based on the same skin color? Also, like LC Beaker says, these laws are routinely used in just about every state with slightly different terminology. All perps actively involved in commission of a felony are deemed principals to the crime and can be prosecuted for “felony murder” for any homocide occurring during said crime, even if it’s one of the other perps. Often, it’s used as a tool to get a minor player (wheel-man, lookouts) to turn on the bigger fish, but in this case, it’s a perfect tool to deal with the “one that got away.” The law, at least as it’s written in Louisiana, has no references to skin color at all–it applies EQUALLY to every color goblin. It is also very much up to the news media to report that fundamental truth rather than merely amplifying hysterical race baiting.

God damn I am so tired of black people playing the race card whenever they get in trouble. Maybe this is why there are so many poor, downtrodden blacks in this country: they dont know how to own up to what they do/did. Interestingly enough, a white guy from my school was walking down a street near campus (literally within half a mile of the dorms) and got jumped by 7-8 black guys last Sun. But no, there is no black racism. Only whites can commit hate crimes. Stupid goddamn PC sniverals, hope they all burn in the eternal fire!
