Seems a few sites are wondering if this is going to be Dear Leader’s Willie Horton? I don’t know about that…but it sure as heck would be if the situation were reversed political party wise and we all know that. We can count on the mainstream media remaining mum about this as well. Seems those on the right side of the aisle have much to use here at their fingertips if they had some guts and a brain in their that works.
Here’s the story via WFB:
President Obama commented on the controversial killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin in a widely noticed Mar. 23 press availability.
The president has yet to comment, however, on another shooting victim whose death is connected to an administration immigration policy and may pose problems for his reelection campaign.
On Jan. 2, 2011, Kesler Dufrene is alleged by local police to have shot and killed 15-year-old Ashley Chow in Miami.
Dufrene, a 23-year-old illegal immigrant from Haiti, was convicted on burglary charges in 2006.
Already on probation for stealing a car, he pled guilty and was sentenced to five years in prison.
The Miami Herald reported that in August 2007 a U.S. immigration judge ordered Dufrene to be deported to Haiti when his sentence was up.
However, the Obama administration halted deportations to Haiti following that nation’s devastating 2010 earthquake.
Dufrene was released in October of that year, three months prior to the January 2011 shooting that killed Chow and two others.
Dufrene shot and killed himself 18 days later, after he was pursued by police.
Immigration authorities did not have to release Dufrene, despite the administration’s order to stop deportations to Haiti. In 2001, and again in 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that illegal immigrants unable to be deported could still be detained for up to six months.
The incident received scant media attention, but it was found newsworthy earlier this year by BuzzFeed, which headlined its story: “Is this Barack Obama’s Willie Horton?”
That was a reference to the convicted murderer who, while serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole in Massachusetts, was released under a weekend furlough program, did not return, and went on to commit rape and assault.
The furlough program was supported by then-Governor Michael Dukakis (D., Mass.), who lost the 1988 president race to George H.W. Bush.
An infamous television advertisement depicting Horton is widely credited with helping to sink Dukakis’ candidacy.
There’s more information here via HA:
When burglar Kesler Dufrene became a twice-convicted felon in 2006, a Bradenton judge shipped him to prison for five years. And because of his convictions, an immigration judge ordered Dufrene deported to his native Haiti.
That never happened.
Instead, when Dufrene’s state prison term was up, Miami immigration authorities in October 2010 released him from custody. Two months later, North Miami police say, he slaughtered three people, including a 15-year-old girl …
DNA on a rifle found inside the house and cellphone tracking technology later linked Dufrene to the Jan. 2, 2011, slayings.
But North Miami detectives never got to interrogate him. Just 18 days after the murders, Dufrene shot and killed himself when he was cornered by Manatee County sheriff’s deputies in Bradenton after an unrelated break-in and shooting there. …
The failure to deport Dufrene infuriates the victims’ family members. “This guy shouldn’t have been in America,” said Audrey Hansack, 37, who moved back to her native Nicaragua after the murder of her daughter Ashley Chow. “I’m so upset with the whole situation. Because of immigration, my daughter is not alive.”
Everything is intertwined. Speaking of Trayon Martin and Obama as was first mentioned at the top of the story via WFB…now we have good ol’ NBC apologizing…to everyone but Zimmerman.
This is via Fox:
NBC has issued an apology for editing out significant parts of the 911 call placed by George Zimmerman on the night that he allegedly shot Trayvon Martin.
Following reports and criticism that the audio aired by NBC was edited in a way that implied Zimmerman was racist, the network launched an internal investigation.
In the edited version of the call, which aired on March 27, Zimmerman can heard saying, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”
In reality, the course of the call went like this:
Zimmerman: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.”
911 Dispatcher: Okay, and this guy – is he white, black or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
NBC has said the error was made in the production process.
Seems the media never focuses on the crimes of others whether it’s via the media, those in congress, including the president, or any other venue…as long as all of the death and destruction comes from those on the left side of life.
Oh yes, releasing Dupree was just a snufu, intentionally editing video/audio or anything else via the leftist media is just an error.
Double-Standards and Hypocrisy go hand in glove when it comes to all involved…there should be repercussions, unfortunately there won’t be. We have far too many gutless-wonders on our side of the aisle that just sit by and look the other way…intentionally. Obviously afraid of their own shadows.
It’s a crying shame…I pray things change before I leave this planet. I fear they won’t.
Will either issue come back to bite Dear Leader? – What say you about all of this?
Fire Away…Inquiring Minds Want to Know!
Addedum: I have to add this folks, this is what the msm and as far as I’m concerned Dear Leader has created themselves by fueling the fire 24/7 nonstop.
This is via GP:
A 78 year-old man said a group of youths beat him in Toledo on his way home from a gas station on Sunday.
Mr. Watts said one of the boys delivered a single blow to the back of his head during the incident Saturday, knocking the victim to the ground.
At one point, the victim recalled being lifted from the ground so one of the boys could “drop-kick” him in the chest.
One boy, he said, put his foot on the back of the victim’s neck, with another shouting, “Kill him.”
While Mr. Watts was down the boys kicked him, over and over, shouting, “[Get] that white [man]. This is for Trayvon … Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man],” according to a police report.
The boys fled when a man shouted at them, according to the report.
Mr. Watts said it’s possible the assault was retribution for the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch captain in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26. Mr. Zimmerman has said he fired in self-defense and has not been charged with any crime.
We haven’t heard about this in the msm…now have we? We haven’t heard Dear Leader say Watts could look like my grandfather, you don’t hear anything about this being a ‘Hate Crime’ from the DOJ or calling for an investigation. Where’s Sharpton and Jackson, or the NAACP and ilk calling for a march about this…hmm? Hypocrites ALL!
