Not held responsible: Murder charges dropped against Chicago teens in shooting

Chicago teens getting away with murder…

Seems the criminals always get a pass…Their crimes are dropped down and their records will not accurately reflect their criminal past.

Good thing we have those super strict gun control laws in Illinois to help prevent future murders!

From MyFoxChicago: Lake County prosecutors have dropped murder charges that were filed against five Chicago teenagers last month after a member of their group was fatally shot by a homeowner in the north suburbs while they allegedly tried to break into a vehicle.

Diamond Davis, 18; Kendrick Cooper, 17; Stacy Davis, 17; Steven Davis, 17; and Curtis Dawson, 16, will no longer be charged with murder for the death of 14-year-old Jaquan Swopes, Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim wrote in a statement.

“The circumstances and facts outlined in my statement support the charge of Felony Murder,” Nerheim wrote. “However, after full consideration of all the evidence, mitigation presented by defense counsel as well as the wishes of the victim’s family, my office has entered into an agreement with defense counsel for the five offenders. This agreement ensures all offenders will be held responsible and face appropriate sentences.”

Davis, 18 (center, top row of the photo), will be charged with a felony count of conspiracy to commit burglary and a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to a vehicle, the state’s attorney’s office said. She is expected to appear in court for a preliminary hearing in Lake County court on Thursday afternoon and plead guilty to the new charges next week.

The cases against the younger defendants will be moved to juvenile court, prosecutors said. “However, due to strict laws governing juvenile courtroom proceedings, my office is unable to give details regarding the charges involving the juveniles going forward,” Nerheim wrote.

The fatal encounter began about 1:15 a.m. Aug. 13 when the teens allegedly tried to break into a car in the 17600 block of West Edwards Road in Old Mill Creek, Lake County sheriff’s office spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli said at a news conference the morning of the shooting.

A 75-year-old man told investigators he saw a black Lexus SUV in his driveway and group of people trying to break into or steal his vehicle, Covelli said.

Two of the teens — including Swopes, who held something in his hand — allegedly approached the man as he was standing on his porch, authorities said. The man fired at least three rounds from a revolver, one of which hit Swopes in the head. He was pronounced dead at Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

The gunman, who had a valid FOID card and concealed-carry permit, called 911 to report the shooting and request an ambulance, Covelli said. Investigators found a knife at the scene, which they believe one of the suspects had with him.

3 recent victories in America’s Culture War

Although the overall trend is that the Right have lost the culture war, we do have three recent victories.

Those three wins as reported by Dr. Michael Brown for The Christian Post, Sept. 20, 2019, are:

(1) The number and rate of abortions in America have dropped to their lowest levels since 1973:

The Associated Press reports that according to a Sept. 18, 2019 report from the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights, the number and rate of abortions across the United States have plunged to their lowest levels since 1973 when the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade legalized abortion nationwide:

  • The number of abortions have steadily decreased from the peak of 1.6 million in 1990, to a little more than 1 million in 2011, to 926,000 in 2014, to 862,000 abortions in 2017.
  • The rate of abortions in 2017 declined to 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 — the lowest rate since 1973, and less than half what it was in 1990.

Admittedly, some of the decline is due to increased use of contraception and lower fertility rates, with women having fewer children in general. Still, the decline in the number and rate of abortions is also due to a recognition of the wrongness of abortion.

2) New York City has decided to drop an oppressive ban on so-called conversion therapy:

Tyler O’Neil reports for PJ Media on Sept. 16, 2019, that NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson announced that because of a legal challenge from Orthodox Jewish psychologist Dr. David Schwartz, the city will act swiftly to repeal a 2017 law forbidding therapists from charging clients for “services intended to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.” Therapists who violated the law would be fined $1,000 per violation.

Johnson, who is homosexual, said: “Obviously I didn’t want to repeal this. I don’t want to be someone who is giving in to these right-wing groups. But the Supreme Court has become conservative; the Second Circuit, which oversees New York, has become more conservative. We think this is the most responsible, prudent course.”

3) Some cities are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” in local libraries:

Recall that last year, the American Library Association approved “Drag Queen Story Hour” in public libraries for children as young as 3. Below is one of the drag queens (source: Mass Resistance).

On Sept. 8, 2019, the South Bay Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, CA, was vandalized for opposing “Drag Queen Story Hour” in the local public library. That Sunday morning, church goers were greeted by satanic graffiti on the church door.  (Source: Mass Resistance)

Some cities, however, are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” because of parental protests.

One of them is Leander, Texas.

As reported by Mass Resistance, a pro-family activist organization, on August 15, 2019, Leander’s City Council voted 5-2 to stop renting out their public library meeting rooms to outside organizations, and voted 6-1 to require background checks for guest presenters for programs in the library involving children 17 and younger. By all accounts, these policy changes will completely stop the “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in Leander’s public library.

Political persecution: NC high school cheerleaders put on probation for posing with ‘Trump 2020’ banner

Source: Facebook

On Monday, Sept. 16, 2019, cheerleaders from North Stanly High School in New London, North Carolina, were put on probation for the remainder of the football season for posing with a Trump 2020 banner before a football game last August 30. The school district has not defined the terms of the probation and stated that the cheerleader team is expected to continue cheering.

The photo of the cheerleaders with the banner was posted on Facebook, prompting one commenter to write: “Why in the world would the school board allow this to happen. I am sad and very disappointed with NS. This is a High School football game, not a political rally. Shame on them.”

In a press release, North Stanly High School said:

  • During the football game that evening, the cheerleaders, while in uniform, held up a political campaign sign.
  • Neither Stanly County Schools nor North Stanly High School disciplined the cheerleaders for this action.
  • The focus of an athletic event should be on our students – not politics – which is why the school board has a policy that prohibits the distribution of political campaign material at school events or school publications. This policy is in place to ensure the school system remains neutral on political issues and the focus remains on our students. 
  • This policy does not prohibit students from speaking their minds or engaging in protected First Amendment activities. Because the cheerleaders were in uniform and were acting as representatives of the school, the display of the sign could be perceived as the school or school system endorsing a political campaign.  For this reason, the only action Stanly County Schools has taken is to ask the cheerleaders not to display the sign again.
  • Upon becoming aware of this matter, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association placed the cheerleading squad on probation for the remainder of the football season. Probation is not a punishment, but the school is put on notice that further actions or behaviors that go against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior by the same team or school will be subject to punishment, in accordance with Handbook Rule 3.2.
  • The NCHSAA did not suspend the cheerleading squad. The cheerleaders were present at the football game on September 13 and will be present at all remaining games during the season. 
  • The NCHSAA is the governing body for inter-scholastic athletics in North Carolina. As a member of the NCHSAA, Stanly County Schools is required to comply with all NCHSAA rules and regulations. 

NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker told McClatchy news group that probation is not punishment, but rather “serves as a notice of behavior or action that is against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or contrary to expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior. One of the rules we have is that every contest should be conducted in a wholesome, athletic environment. We take that to mean that it’s in an environment where good sportsmanship is shown, where people feel safe…that respect for all people participating is being shown.”

The Stanly County School District also issued a statement saying:

Stanly County Schools respects the rights of its students, staff, and visitors to express their opinions in a respectful manner on their own time, however, Stanly County Board of Education policy prohibits the display or distribution of political advertisements on campus or at school events. Further, Stanly County Schools never makes political campaign endorsements. These policies ensure that all students, staff and visitors are able to attend school events in an environment that promotes students and not a particular political viewpoint.

Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) protested the probation. Hudson said in a letter to the NCHSAA:

I am appalled these students are being punished for exercising their First Amendment right to free speech. As leaders, we should be encouraging America’s youth to participate in our democracy and political process — not punishing them and silencing them. These North Stanly students respectfully displayed a sign and took a picture. They did not cause a scene, participate in a protest, or break any school code of conduct … At the end of the day, these students have a First Amendment right to free speech, and the NCHSAA should immediately reconsider thus unfair punishment. I ask this not only as the federal representative of Stanly County, but also as a proud graduate of North Carolina public schools and a former NCHSAA athlete.

Supporters of the cheerleading squad have planned an event this Friday, Sept 20, 6-8 pm. The announcement of the event on Facebook says:

The North Stanly High School cheerleaders have been wrongly put on probation by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association for the rest of the football season because of holding up a Trump banner before a home game on 8-30-2019. Please come out and help me show the school and the NCHSAA that freedom of speech is not dead. Please bring all your Trump and MAGA gear and let’s throw our support behind the North Stanly High School cheerleaders.

Does anyone seriously believe that these cheerleaders would be punished if they had held up a “Hillary Clinton 2016” banner?

No bias in this study? “1 in 16 women report their first experience with sexual intercourse was rape”

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association this week, for 1 in 16 women their first experience with sexual intercourse was a rape or under coercion.

The study is entitled, “Association Between Forced Sexual Initiation and Health Outcomes Among US Women.”

From the study summary:

Question: What is the prevalence of forced sexual initiation among women and girls in the United States and its association with reproductive, gynecologic, and general health outcomes?

Findings: In this cross-sectional, nationally representative study of 13,310 American women aged 18 to 44 years, 6.5% reported forced sexual initiation (mean age at forced sexual initiation, 15.6 years). Forced sexual initiation appeared to be associated with multiple adverse reproductive, gynecologic, and general health outcomes after adjustment for demographic confounders.

Meaning: These findings could help clinicians improve the medical care of women and girls and inform the development of public health policies aimed at reducing forced sexual initiation in the United States.

From the Abstract:

Importance: The #MeToo movement has highlighted how frequently women experience sexual violence. However, to date, no recent studies have assessed the prevalence of forced sex during girls’ and women’s first sexual encounter or its health consequences.

Objective: To estimate the prevalence of forced sexual initiation among US women and its association with subsequent reproductive, gynecologic, and general health outcomes.

Conclusions and Relevance: Forced sexual initiation in women appears to be common and associated with multiple adverse reproductive and general health outcomes. These findings highlight the possible need for public health measures and sociocultural changes to prevent sexual violence, particularly forced sexual initiation.

The authors of this study are the following:

Laura Hawks, MD: Department of Medicine, Cambridge Health Alliance, Cambridge Massachusetts; Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.
Steffie Woolhandler, MD, MPH, Harvard Medical School; City University of New York, Hunter College, New York, New York.
David U. Himmelstein, MD, Harvard Medical School; City University of New York, Hunter College, New York, New York.

Let’s take a look at the Twitter accounts of these authors, shall we?

Laura Hawks/Twitter profile

Laura Hawks:

Retweet on May 15: “Thread alert! Hopping mad about dwindling abortion access? Welcome, we’ve been waiting for you. Here are some ways you can show up today in your state — please settle in for the long haul. We need you now, and we need you for the weeks, months, and years to come.”

Retweet on November 4, 2018: “@AndrewGillum and @staceyabrams are two candidates that are committed to ending mass incarceration. Before you vote find out where your candidate stands on criminal justice reform.”

Retweet on October 28, 2018: In America, white supremacists have killed more than a dozen minorities this week alone.”

Steffie Wooldhandler:

Her bio states the following: After several years of working in the movement against the Vietnam War, I sought a career that would allow me to continue my work for social change. I also loved math and science. Medicine was a career that allowed me to combine both my interests. Dr. Stephanie J. Woolhandler has advocated guaranteed access to health care for all members of society, including the Americans currently without medical insurance. In 1986 she helped found Physicians for a National Health Program, a not-for-profit organization for physicians, medical students, and other health care professionals who advocate a national health insurance program.

From Steffie’s Twitter bio: “Physician, Professor, Shadow secretary of DHHS @shadowingtrump”

Let’s go to @shadowingtrump and take a look at what that is all about, shall we?

From their Twitter bio: “21 progressive leaders unite in a one-stop site to debunk Trump daily & offer alternatives, agency-by-agency. Because truth trumps lies. Created by @markjgreen”

Recent @shadowingtrump tweets:

Trump’s hate is bad for your health. Rise in health uninsured may be linked to immigrants’ fears”

“With the failures of both his trade war and tax cuts, Trump’s reelect down to two arguments: “let’s see what happens”; “hate minorities & liberals.” He’s sinking.

“Doctors urge studies on how detention of border children is a willful health hazard.”

“Trump treats Gateway Pundit with infinitely more respect than the @nytimes—all historians will need to know about this abhorrent moment.”

David Himmelstein

David Himmelstein (from Wikipedia):

David U. Himmelstein is an American academic physician specializing in internal medicine. He is a distinguished professor of public health and health policy in the CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College, an adjunct clinical professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and a lecturer at Harvard Medical School. He is also the co-founder (with Steffie Woolhandler) of Physicians for a National Health Program, an organization advocating for single-payer healthcare in the United States.

I’ve never authored a research article yet I do have several questions regarding this study:

Given the political identity of the authors, was there a perceived bias in their study (questions and persuasion) to influence public health policies toward a desired outcome (single-payer healthcare)?

Is there a perceived bias in the authors’ (particularly Woolhandler) handling/framing of this study to influence “social change?”

Did the authors inquire about the background of these forced sexual initiation offenders and the resulting arrests in order to inform the development of criminal policies aimed at reducing forced sexual initiation in the United States?

And given the authors’ political identities, was there not some desired outcome to suggest that rape is common because Orange Man Bad (and the Justice Kavanaugh faux allegations)?

After all, the 2020 presidential election is just around the corner…

BBC teaches school-children there are more than 100 genders

Yesterday, our DCG posted about UK children as young as three getting “help” from the National Health Service (NHS) to change their gender via a simple Skype call.

The madness continues.

The state-owned and -operated British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) recently released a series of educational videos designed “in consultation with a PSHE education expert” for teachers to use with children aged 9-12.

Note: Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education is a school curriculum subject in England which focusses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep children and young people healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work.

The BBC educational videos tell children there are more than 100 “gender identities,” and that people who disagree “just don’t know any better yet” and can be arrested and imprisoned for disagreeing.

Joseph Curl reports for the Daily Wire, Sept. 16, 2019, that the videos feature young children asking questions to teachers on a variety of subjects, including human sexuality, gender, and relationships:

  • In one episode titled “Understanding Sexual and Gender Identities,” the BBC says gender is not a biological assignment, but rather reflects “who you are inside.” One teacher tells the children: “There are so many gender identities. So we know we’ve got male and female, but there are over 100, if not more, gender identities now. You’ve got some people who might call themselves gender queer, who are just like, ‘I don’t really want to be anything in particular, I’m just going to be me.'”
  • In an episode called “The Big Talk,” a teacher tells children that they can be jailed if they are found to be “disrespecting or being hateful to people because of a difference that person perceives.”
  • The video includes Leo Lardie, a female-to-male transgender activist, telling the children about its “transition” and genitalia, and that the only way to happiness is to be “true about who I was, and let other people in on this.”
  • Another episode features a head teacher married to someone of the same sex, who suggests to the children that you “might be gay” if you like someone of the same sex “in a slightly different way than you do normally to your friends.”

The BBC “educational” video series has caused a stir in Britain:

  • Stephanie Davies-Arai, founder of Transgender Trend representing parents concerned about children and transgenderism, told the Sunday Times: “This is made-up nonsense. People are free to identify as anything they like, but this does not change the reality that there are only two sexes.
  • In a heated exchange with “gay” journalist Benjamin Butterworth who defends the BBC videos, Piers Morgan, former CNN host and nhe host of “Good Morning Britain,” asked, “Can I identify as a penguin at the Sealife Aquarium in London, that is currently being reared as gender-neutral, apparently has gay parents. Let me just say this, can I under this new world of self-identification, can I identify as a two-spirit, neutrois penguin?” Butterworth said, “Well, you’re not a penguin, use some common sense. That’s not a thing that happens.” But Morgan shot back: “How dare you tell me I can’t identify as that! How dare you offend me!” 

About the penguins, see DCG’s “Aquarium to raise ‘genderless’ penguin“.

UK children as young as three could receive help to change their gender from NHS via Skype call

From Daily Mail: Children as young as three could be helped to change gender by doctors on the basis of just a Skype phone call under plans being considered by the NHS.

A controversial clinic, which helps thousands of children to change gender every year, says that it has become so overwhelmed by patients that it could be forced to set children on a path to a new sex on the basis of ‘telemedical’ appointments.

The startling development is likely to cause an outcry among critics of the clinic’s work, who will argue that it is impossible to evaluate a child’s suitability for such radical treatment over the phone.

Internal reports produced for the directors of the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS), run by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, argue that without such radical changes the clinic could be forced to shut down due to an exodus of demoralised staff.

The plan for sex change by Skype comes as the clinic faces growing pressure from psychologists who say it uses untested drugs on troubled children and ‘rushes’ them towards becoming transgender.

Last year 2,590 children were referred to the clinic, a rise of more than 400 per cent since 2013, leading to a two-year waiting list.

Ten of the children were aged three or four and dozens more were of primary-school age. The treatment includes giving the children hormone-blocking drugs.

The GIDS reports, which have been seen by this newspaper, reveal that the clinic has started testing ‘some of the practicalities involved in identifying young people and families to be considered for treatment appointments delivered with telemedicine’.

It uses technology such as Skype and FaceTime to allow doctors to diagnose and prescribe treatment for patients hundreds or thousands of miles away.

The reports, which were presented to the directors last month, reveal that publicity about the clinic’s work has led to a surge in demand for its services and an increase in waiting times, leading to a growing burden on staff.

The report warns that the situation was becoming so serious that ‘the service could be decommissioned by the NHS’.

Last night, a spokesman for the Tavistock and Portman Trust said: ‘Using digital technologies to increase efficiency and to enhance patient experience where appropriate is an area of development across the NHS.

‘The Trust is working to minimise waiting times and make clinical support easier to access, including eliminating travel time for young people and their families, which will also allow us to offer appointments earlier and later in the day.

‘As with the rest of the NHS, innovations like telemedicine are an addition and will not mean the removal or inability to access face-to-face consultations.

‘The Trust and GIDS welcome all open and informed discussion and decision-making around the best way to support young people experiencing difficulties or distress around their gender identity.’

An NHS source said that NHS England ‘would continue to work with the Trust and the service to seek changes that will address waiting times and support continued improvement of the service delivered’.

Evil new sexual fetish: Couples repeatedly get pregnant, then abort

An evil person is somone who intentionally causes harm to another, whether by action or inaction.

As with all human attributes, evil is a continuum — an ordinal scale of more or less. The most evil is when one derives pleasure from intentionally inflicting harm on another.

By that definition, the new “breeding” sexual fetish is among the most evil.

Paul Joseph Watson of Summit News alerts us to a new sexual fetish of couples repeatedly getting pregnant then having their child aborted.

Watson alludes to a post on the chat-forum Reddit, wherein a Reddit user confided that her friend engages in this depraved and evil fetish with her male partner. Watson comments:

“Every day we stray further from God’s light…. Given that the left has turned abortion from something that used to be a shameful last resort into a celebrated virtue, it becoming a sexual fetish was always the next (il)logical step.”

I found the Reddit post and thread: click here.

Note that the spelling and grammatical mistakes in the Reddit quotes below are those of the Reddit posters.

The post was submitted by Reddit user u/Ooliava a year ago:

Question regarding abortions and breeding fetish

I have a female friend who has a really powerful fetish for breeding, she was never used any type of birth control. She is with a male partner currently who is just like her, into breeding and they have been practicing their fetish for quite a few abortions.

Responding to a comment, Ooliava writes more about her friend with the breeding fetish:

[S]he does it [abortion] in a hospital normally. It’s just that she likes getting impregnated and then lets it go on, she enjoys the nausea and the like symptoms knowing it arrives from pregnancy. She does the abortion in what she claims to be a safe time, before things get too difficult, I just want to know she is not putting herself in serious risk with her breeding fetish.

Another Reddit user Klaus-2018 writes:

I know this fetish. my girlfriend and me have the same fetish. My girlfriend enjoy her pregnancys and she enjoys the aborttation. Her preferred date for the abort is between 20 and 24 weeks of gestation. I enjoy it to make her pregnant. And i enjoy the time of her pregnancy. she has no menstrual period and she is sexual very aktive.

sexuality witout prevention is very emotional and inexpensive

in the last 10 years in our relationship we have done 7 aborts. and my girlfriend is pregnant again with a litle girl.

Aborttation fetish it is a great method for birth control

Reddit user Aborterrific applauds:

It is good (and rare) to hear of a couple (both man and woman) where both members are into abortion and pregnancy. This is a wonderful and potent example of personal power, where sex meets violence and creation combines with destruction.

Thank you for sharing your exciting romance and would like to know about how this latest abortion was for you. i can imagine that it is a very bonding experience between you and your partner.

Yet another Reddit user rapebreeder chimes in:

I have a breeding with strangers fetish where women I don’t know I impregnate. Not to brag, but I have knocked up over 40 women here in the United States and Europe. (I have a job where I travel). My main fetish is pregnancy risk fetish which I prefer to do with a girlfriend or female friend. We specifically have sex when she is fertile, but if I knock her up she has to have a baby. No abortion. It is a game of Russian Roulette. I was asked by a stranger to get her pregnant years ago because it turned her on and I just keep going with both.

These people are all going to Hell. Before that, they will face their Creator and will be confronted by all the babies they had aborted.

Sanctuary Montgomery County, MD: Eighth illegal alien charged with sex crime since July 25

Montgomery County, Maryland is a sanctuary county. And they are having a serious problem with illegal aliens and sex crimes.

Last week I told you about the seventh illegal alien who was arrested for sex crime in five weeks.

Details from that sexual assault: A Honduran national in the United States illegally was accused of raping his 15-year-old stepdaughter. The perp was previously deported in April 2017, but re-entered the United States “sometime thereafter.

Another illegal alien free to roam around in sanctuary Montgomery County and do his thing…

Now it’s been revealed by Kevin Lewis of ABC News that an eighth illegal alien has been charged with rape or sex abuse of a minor in Montgomery County since July 25. Details from Kevin’s tweets:

“Police say 26 year old Oluwakayode Adebusuyi raped an intoxicated woman in his car.

Last summer, Montgomery County Police charged Adebusuyi with 2nd-degree assault, 4th-degree sex offense and false imprisonment. Prosecutors dropped all counts in that case for unspecified reasons. Adebusuyi had been employed as a ride-share driver up until his most recent arrest.

A judge gave Adebusuyi a $250,000 bond. He remains in custody. Should Adebusuyi post bond, Montgomery County will give ICE a courtesy call, but it won’t hold the accused rapist beyond the normal jail release process. Montgomery County has also banned ICE from entering secure portions of the jail.

County Executive Marc Elrich

County Executive Marc Elrich takes no responsibility for the crimes committed by illegal aliens roaming around in his sanctuary haven. He blames the “court system” and says he’s just “simply continuing the practice of the prior administration.”

Todd files for divorce from Sarah Palin

After 31 years of marriaage, Todd Palin, 55, a commercial fisherman, has filed for divorce against former Alaskan governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin, 55, according to documents filed in Anchorage Superior Court last Friday, Sept. 6, 2019.

The court documents only identify the parties by initials but list the Palins’ wedding day as well as the birthday of their minor child, Trig Palin. The filing says the parties intend to seek joint custody of 11-year-old Trig, who has Down syndrome.

Todd said he and Sarah were suffering from an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife,” reports the Anchorage Daily News.

According to the court document obtained exclusively by Radar Online, Todd is demanding their debts and assets be “divided equally”.

Todd’s lawyer, Kimberlee Colbo, asked the court that the divorce remain confidential as it moves forward, the filing states. Sarah Palin has not yet responded to the filing.

You can see the 3-page divorce document here.

Convicted child rapist Roman Polanski wins Venice Film Festival award

What an effect that “Me Too” movement (in part popularized by Hollyweird actress Alyssa Milano) had on “giving people a sense of the magnitude of the problem” of sexual harassment.

From Yahoo: “Joker” from director Todd Phillips won the Golden Lion, and “J’Accuse,” or “An Officer and a Spy,” from director Roman Polanski has won the Grand Jury Prize, the festival’s runner up prize, at the 76th edition of the Venice Film Festival.

The comic book film starring Joaquin Phoenix in an origin story of the iconic Batman villain beat out a lineup that also included films such as James Gray’s “Ad Astra” and Steven Soderbergh’s “The Laundromat” for the top prize.

“I want to thank Warner Bros. and DC for stepping out of their comfort zone and taking a big swing on me,” director Todd Phillips said as he accepted the Golden Lion.

Polanski’s “An Officer and a Spy” stars Jean Dujardin in a film about the Dreyfus Affair. His presence at the festival generated some backlash, as it’s his first film since the director was expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He was not present in Venice to accept the award.

Read the whole story here.

Women among the jury included the following:

Lucrecia Martel, who once said this: “I feel bad for male friends and colleagues, but a man’s education is made, in a way, in order to avoid failure. That’s why I think gender violence is more men on women rather than women on men, because they are not able to manage frustration. This ability to manage frustration is a big advantage in this profession and I am actually very surprised that there are not more women making cinema today. Because being a woman makes you more ready to do this.”

Mary Harron, who made this claim at the Festival: “We’re trying to overturn a system of inertia that works in favor of the status quo: funders give money to people like themselves, or they are women trying to keep their position in a male-dominated world.”

Stacy Martin, who made this claim about the Festival: ”It’s a slow process, but in the hopes of achieving gender equality in a male-dominated industry, being included in the jury and being a part of the changes happening is very important to me.”

Take a bow, you hypocrites.
