Half of the candidates in the Detroit mayoral race are felons

detroit

I doubt their backgrounds would help them deal with the financial disaster that is Detroit.

From Fox News: Half the candidates in next week’s Detroit mayoral primary have been convicted of felony crimes, according to a local analysis.

The Detroit News found three of the eight mayoral hopefuls have faced gun charges — two for assault with intent to commit murder — and a fourth candidate pleaded guilty to a non-gun charge years ago. While some of these cases date back to the 1970s, some are more recent.

Under Michigan state election law, convicted felons can vote and run for office, so long as they are not incarcerated or guilty of crimes breaching public trust. The nonpartisan primary will narrow the field down to two candidates who will face off in November.

The candidates are apparently open about their histories. Greg Bowens, a political consultant and former press secretary to former Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer, told The Detroit News that the rap sheets aren’t unique to this election or Detroit.

“[The candidates] deserve the opportunity to be heard, but they also deserve to have the kind of scrutiny that comes along with trying to get an important person elected,” he said.

Three of the candidates told The Detroit News their criminal histories have served as motivation in running for office.

Donna Marie Pitts, 58, has multiple felony convictions, beginning in 1977, according to court records reviewed by the newspaper. “I don’t hide it. God has brought me out,” Pitts told the paper. “I hope [voters] don’t look at it as negative but as my experience, and I can help. I want to fight for them.”

Other candidates with past charges include Danetta Simpson, who was convicted in 1996 for assault with intent to murder; Articia Bomer, who was charged in 2008 for carrying a concealed weapon; and Curtis Christopher Greene who was charged with fourth-degree fleeing and eluding police during an attempted traffic stop, and a marijuana-related count. The felony charge reportedly came when he violated probation in 2005 and was charged over a fraudulent check, according to the report.

Detroit’s mayoral primary election is set for Aug. 8.

Mom Busted in Alleged Attack on Woman, 71, With Victim’s Own Cane for Saying Her Child Needs Manners

Breonna Turk: Not a candidate for Mother of the Year Award…

From Yahoo: Police in New York say they arrested a mother who flew into a rage when an elderly woman suggested she teach her child some manners, attacking the senior citizen with her own cane in a subway station.

Breonna Turk, 24, surrendered Wednesday after she allegedly attacked a 71-year-old woman at the Q train station at 86th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan two days earlier, police said.

The senior victim was waiting to enter an elevator when Turk and her young son, who were apparently also wanting to get on, pushed past a crowd getting out at about 2:10 p.m. Monday, a police source told InsideEdition.com.

“You should teach your child to wait till people come out of the elevator instead of trying to get in,” the septuagenarian said as they stepped onto the elevator, according to a police source.

Turk allegedly responded by attacking the elderly woman in full view of the little boy, cops said. She allegedly threw the victim off the elevator, punched her and then snatched the woman’s cane to continue the attack, the police source said. She then fled with the child in an unknown direction, authorities said.

The victim suffered a cut to her hand and was left with pain throughout her body, the source said.

Turk was charged with assault in the second degree. Cops said she lives in a high-rise building about two blocks away from where the incident occurred.

Soldier brutally attacked by 4 blacks in Tampa (Update)

UPDATE (May 20):

Two 18-year-old black men have been arrested in connection with the attack on Sgt. Aparico. Go to my post on this, here!

UPDATE (May 16):

We now have the name of the soldier victim. He is Sgt. Johnny Aparico. I can’t find his photo but Aparico is a Latin name.

Winters & Yonker, a local law firm in Tampa, is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the four attackers.

He’s a 24-year-old U.S. Army soldier of undetermined race. He is assigned to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, and has been there for less than a month.

WTSP Channel 10 in Tampa, Florida, reports that on Sunday (May 13) morning, at around 3 a.m., the soldier’s car broke down a few miles from home along Westshore Blvd. So he got out of his car and started walking home, using Iowa St. to get from Westshore to Dale Mabry.

A neighbor’s motion-activated security camera caught sight of the solder at the intersection of Iowa and Renellie Dr.

A group of three young men was walking ahead of the soldier. One of the men doubled back and asked the soldier for a dollar.

When the soldier reached for his wallet, the black punk throws a sucker punch so hard that the soldier is knocked onto the ground. The other two men join in, punching and kicking the soldier. A fourth man — whom the soldier had walked past earlier — comes sprinting into view from the left edge of the video and joins in the beating.

The savage attack by the feral gang of four took only 40 seconds.

The savages then leave, with the soldier’s wallet and cell phone. The soldier eventually got to his feet and, since he’s been robbed of his cell phone, had to knock on doors to find someone to help him call 911.

The soldier described three of his attackers as young black men, and the fourth as “perhaps” Hispanic.

Our streets are no longer safe. We walk the streets at our peril.

American society is breeding men who are worse than wild animals.

More OWS Public Defecation

“By their fruits, you will know them.” -Matthew 7:15

In addition to two known incidents of public defecation by Occupy Wall Street protesters bums — on a police car and on the American flag — here’s another incident in Eureka, California.

Citing a press release from the Eureka Police Department, the North Coast Journal reported that last Friday, Nov. 4, 2011, at about 8:09 a.m., “officers responded to the 5th Street branch of US Bank for a biohazard report. A US Bank representative reported that she came to work to find an unknown subject(s) had urinated and defecated in the entry way to the bank. This is the second occurrence of this type at US Bank this week.

While taking the biohazard report, the officer was also advised that a complaint had been made to US Bank by a customer concerning being surrounded and harassed by subjects from the ‘Occupy’ group, when they attempted to use the US Bank ATM.”

The next day, November 5, a female reporter from News Channel 3 in Eureka, California, asking a group of Occupiers who had urinated and defecated on a local branch of US Bank. After getting only the protesters’ bums’ twisted logic that “the banks poop on us every day,” the reporter walks through the camp and gets assaulted by a protester bum.

Soros Sued by 28-Year-Old Lover for Assault & Battery

Finally, we have a tiny sliver of good news to report!

81-year-old George Soros — international financier, currency speculator, destroyer of the economies of entire nations, supporter of Obama and leftwing causes — is being sued by his ex-lover who is young enough to be his grand-daughter.

Tom Leonard and Daniel Bates report for the UK’s Daily Mail, August 12, 2011, that the man who reportedly made millions during the 1992 UK  currency crises, is being sued for more than $51 million (£31million) for slapping and choking his 28-year-old ex-girlfriend, Brazilian soap star Adriana Ferreyr.

Arm in arm: The couple in happier times, before the split and bitter money battle

Soros & Ferreyr in happier times

Ferreyr claims Soros slapped her in the face and attempted to choke her as they argued over property in bed together. She says the two had a relationship for five years before he dumped her last year.

But, according to a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, there was a brief reconciliation in August last year in which the couple spent a night together at Soros’s home in New York’s Upper East Side. It was there that Soros, who has an estimated fortune of $14.7 billion (£8.9billion), “bluntly” told her that he had given to another woman the $2 million apartment on the 7th floor of a luxury high-rise in New York which he had promised to Ferreyr.

In the inevitable row that followed, the lawsuit claims that “Mr Soros slapped Miss Ferreyr across the face and proceeded to put his hands around her neck in an attempt to choke her.” Ferreyr says she managed to evade him and picked up a glass lamp to protect herself. Soros then allegedly grabbed the lamp and tried to hit her with it, narrowly missing. She claims she ran into the office next to Soros’s bedroom and called police.

Ferreyr claims the confrontation traumatised her to the point she was “unable to function in her day-to-day life” and has since had to have treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Soros strongly denies the allegations. His lawyer, William Zabel, while admitting that his client did have an “on and off” relationship with Ferreyr, called the suit “frivolous and entirely without merit…riddled with false charges and is obviously an attempt to extract money from my client, who is known to be a very rich man. The police investigated the incident referred to and concluded that no assault occurred. George Soros did not slap, choke or throw a lamp at her.’

George Soros’s private life is rarely touched on in the U.S.. Married and twice divorced, he has five children. In the past few years, Soros’s reported girlfriends have included the violinist Jennifer Chun and former Miss Russia Anna Malova.

All I can say is I hope the Brazilian hot pepper wins!

H/t beloved fellow Tina.
