This generation’s Nazis

In Paris a 23 year old Jewish man was laid to rest after being kidnapped, tortured and murdered by a gang of Islamofacists. Last night on the Victoria Taft Show, John Loftus spoke of the shared background of the new wave of Islamofacists and Nazis. Sadly, he appears to be right.

Halimi’s family and others in the Jewish community said that had the authorities admitted earlier that the young man had been attacked for being a Jew, he could possibly have been saved.Halimi was found dying, covered with burns and cuts, on Monday February 13. He had been kidnapped three weeks earlier, after a Muslim gang sent a blonde to seduce him. Halimi had agreed to meet with her after meeting in a chat room. Immediately after his abduction his mother went to the police, saying he was kidnapped by anti-Semites. Sources in the community said three Jewish youngsters had managed to escape similar abdications in recent months.

Problems with Portland Public Schools? Nah…

Problems with Portland Public Schools? Of course not says the Portland Tribune today. Let’s play a game: if you can detect the oxymoronic thought in these sentences, you get a cookie.

The district’s options have helped keep Portland’s capture rate — the rate at which Portland parents send their kids to Portland schools — at 85 percent, one of the highest among urban school districts nationwide. • School choice is No. 1 on the list of “Things That Don’t Need Fixing” in Portland Public Schools. “

Otherwise a fine series of articles in the Tribune today.
P.S. The PPS says it’s cracking down on the liberal school transfer policy this year. When you consider this, ‘capture rate’ takes on a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?

There’s SOMEthing FAMILIAR about you…

The Portland Tribune has a story today about a man the authorities call “Wyatt Perp” because he seems incapable of staying out of trouble. Read the following excerpt and ask yourself the question: how about we just give this dude a job?

Wyatt, 43 years old, an imposing 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, who used to be a welder and a machinist before drinking overtook his life, has been booked into Multnomah County jails 59 times on a total of 175 charges since 1987. Almost every one of the charges is a misdemeanor, ranging from trespassing to resisting arrest to interfering with public transportation. With that kind of history and with his own ideas of how the legal process should work, he clogs up judges’ and prosecutors’ time and resources. He never waives an appearance in court, attending all pretrial meetings — even the ones defendants traditionally do not — and files reams of handwritten motions when his lawyers do not serve him to his satisfaction. Only once has he pleaded guilty. He often defends himself and, more often, fires his court-appointed counsel — he has had at least 34 attorneys represent him in the last 19 years, as many as seven on a single case. On one recent case, in which he represented himself, he was drunk in court while cross-examining the cop who arrested him for drinking in public. No shortage of people who have dealt with him said Wyatt seems obsessed with and addicted to the legal process, the show of a trial and the legal intricacies that can mean the difference between jail and freedom.
