62-Year-Old Man Attacked with Crowbar Over Trump T-Shirt

A New Jersey man was brutally attacked with a crowbar last week for wearing a t-shirt supporting his candidate of choice, Donald Trump.

Peter Yankowski, 62, was walking down the street in Bloomfield when a man pulled up in a vehicle beside him. The man did not know the driver, who began questioning him about his Trump shirt.

“He called me white trash, cursed at me, blah, blah, blah, which I told the police officers,” Yankowski told ABC7. “Came back in here, he followed.”

The older man continued walking, and was followed into a resturant parking lot by the angry motorist.

“Fifteen minutes later, he came back with a low-jack in his hand, daring me to come outside,” he said. “I said I’ll meet you outside so we can talk this over. Come outside, he swings the low-jack at me.”

Once they were in the parking lot, the derranged driver exited his vehicle with a crowbar and began beating the stranger with it. The Trump supporter sustained injuries to his arms, hands, and his thighs, the police have stated. The driver fled the scene before police arrived.

People in the parking lot as well as restaurant employees witnessed the attack, but police have stated that the description of the suspect is vague — other than the fact that he was an “African American who appeared to be in his 20s” and was driving an older gray compact car.

“When they came outside, the kid was trying to hit him with the metal,” Friendly’s employee Mimi Sonmez, who witnessed the attack told News 12.  “When I saw the metal going toward the white man’s head, I pushed the kid away.”

With the media consistently whippping people into a frenzy, this election season has proven to be perhaps one of the most divisive in history. Political debates have been continuously involving fists instead of words.

On July 25, a political debate at a bar in Ohio ended in a shooting — after the 60-year-old victim stated that he was voting for Trump. The shooter, Darnell Hall, 45, has now been charged with felonious assault.

“I realize that a lot of people don’t like Donald Trump, but I never expected anything like this, to be physically attacked,” Yankowski said.

Yankowski has stated that he will not be wearing the shirt again until November.

Anyone who may have any information about the incident has been asked to call Bloomfield police.

Tensions Escalate During Anti-Trump Rally In Detroit

Tensions Escalate During Anti-Trump Rally
In Detroit Michigan.

Detroit Michigan- as GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump began his speech in Cobo Center, more than 100 protesters stood outside of the arena decrying the grandiloquent Trump, holding signs calling him sexist, racist and a fascist.

“No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA,” protesters chanted Monday morning, the protesters facing a line of police, including five mounted on horse back with wooden batons.

 Inside the Cobo Center, more than 12 event attendees each individually disrupted Trump’s speech were escorted from out by security. Often times audience members would turn and shout down the anti-trump demonstrators.

Waitress Sarah Messer was the first to disrupt the Don’s speech, and said she was protesting Trump because of previous comments he made that women should leave their jobs if they are sexually harassed, and also what she considers his lack of support for the LBGT community. Trump respond with “I will say the Bernie Sanders people had far more energy and spirit.”

According to Detroit police, and the local Detroit news “No violence broke out Monday amid the peaceful protest organized by the United Auto Workers union, aside from a brief “tussle” over a Confederate flag.

They briefly detained the man who left the scene after the incident, Barren said, adding that “He realized that this is probably not the best event for him, so he’s gone.”

Trump campaign stops have been marred in recent months with violent outbreaks between Trump supporters and opponents. While the main stream leftist media has continued to paint Trump as a racist, misogynist, anti-immigrant, it makes me wonder why his campaign chose Detroit an over 80% minority city.

Trump is mobilizing racist, misogynist, anti-immigrant sentiment among white, middle-class workers,” said David Langstaff, 32. “I live in Detroit and I think we have a responsibility to resist Donald Trump. I think we have a lot of power when we come together. That’s a lot more power than voting every four years.”

 Langstaff said he was outside Cobo on Monday to protest Trump, the man also declared himself anti-Hillary, saying he supports an entirely new system of American government.

“The kinds of things we need for ourselves are not going to happen through the ballot box,” he said. “I think (our country) should be based on principles of radical democracy and egalitarianism, and that’s not something that’s possible under our current political system.”

Anti-Trump protesters weren’t alone Monday, with a handful of the businessman’s supporters joining the fray. One Trump supporter walked along the street with a giant Trump flag before slipping into the chanting crowd.

“I wanted to see how they would react to someone with a different opinion,” said Detroiter Zack Wojtan, 20. “I was saying this is a public sidewalk, and they were telling me I couldn’t be there,” Wojtan Said he supports Trump for his economic policies.

According to  Steve Neavling Investigative reporter and publisher of MotorCityMuckraker.com there were 5-10 Trump supporters who were heckling protesters all day, who were peaceful until the confederate flag was pulled out. The man with the flag was the first to throw a punch. He defiantly came ready to fight. He was heckling protesters all day, and no one would take the bait. And then he pulled out this , he was looking for a fight. He was heckling people all day, trying to get them to snap.

Protesters far outnumbered Trump’s supporters, with many in the crowd joining Democrat Marie Thornton, a 65-year-old Detroit resident, who said Trump isn’t welcome in the city.

“He was heckling protesters all day, and no one would take the bait. And then he pulled out this , he was looking for a fight. He was heckling people all day, trying to get them to snap.” Steve Neavling

Michael Betzold From Detroit-Sunday-Journal doubts the guy with the flag was odiously expressing his First Amendment rights just on his own–  saying that  “I suspect he was sent there for a reason.”

“Detroit police threw me around, grabbed me by the neck and tried to arrest me for covering the anti-Trump rally. A fight broke out over a Trump supporter waving a Confederate flag. In the chaos, a cop wrongfully accused me of assaulting the man with the flag. I actually was trying to break up the fight. After police detained me, the crowd corrected the cops, saying I did nothing wrong. No wonder cops have a bad reputation. Get a new fucking job if you can’t do this one right.” ~ Steve Neavling

Lesson learned. The cops were messing with me all day. One cop said, “We don’t recognize Motor City Muckraker as the media” when I tried to take pictures from the street. One cop told me to get a life and stop “stirring up shit.”

We recognize you Steve, Thank you for documenting the event from the street, the motor city needs more journalist like you, and if being a journalist means not  having a life and “stirring up shit” then we are here with you.

Violence between police, teachers leaves 6 dead in Mexico

Riot police are forced to fall back as they battle with protesting teachers who were blocking a federal highway in the state of Oaxaca, near the town of Nochixtlan, Mexico, on Sunday, June 19, 2016. Photo: AP

On Sunday, June 19, Police in Oaxaca fired on teachers and protesters and killed at least six people and wounded 30 more. Committing a huge humans-rights violation.

Following the arrest of some if its top leaders, the union called for a revolt against Mexico’s government.

The conflict in Mexico has been ongoing starting first in 2013,  then taking a three year hiatus and resuming again May 2016 of this year. The protest stems from 11 neo-liberal structural reforms signed by President Enrique Peña Nieto. Which resulted in the lay offs of 10’s of thousands of teachers, and he promises even more lay offs in the future.

Everyday the conflict is claiming more and more lives, it seems to get more and more violent with the police denying that they have even used any lethal force against civilians. Despite video’s emerging online of them firing live ammunition into the crowds of protesters.

It has now emerged, that Dozens of Peaceful protesting teachers CNTE a teachers union protesting for education reform in Mexico and their supporters have been murdered while 100’s of others including police were injured by unknown gunmen in cold blood. When they opened fire on both side’s the police chief Enrique Galindo said. But federal police chief Enrique Galindo later said that an armed unit was deployed after shots were fired at the police and the protesters by “unidentified people” not linked to the demonstration.

This isn’t the first time an incident like this happened involving CNTE. In the 1970’s 100 people were murdered when CNTE was first organized. CNTE has since gained more support now estimating 100,000 members across Mexico.

“What we see in Oaxaca is a group of completely unarmed and peaceful teachers who are defending their jobs, who are defending the humanistic and critical tradition of education in Mexico and on the other side we have the government who’s trying to impose its so-called education reform on these teachers,”

~Academic and Analyst John M. Ackerman

The media has portrayed this as a battle between radical teachers and police but that’s not the whole story. The government and President Enrique Peña Nieto have fueled these protest by ignoring the cries of teachers for education reform and arresting leaders of CNTE a teachers union.

That aggression has now risen from arresting to physically attacking protesters and teachers in a hail of bullet fire. Which after months of being displayed on the internet on Youtube. Now an unknown group of gun men are to blame for Sunday’s incident?

While here in the U.S. we are always criticizing mindless acts of violence will the U.S. Main Stream Media ignore or paint the narrative here when they should be standing with these teachers?

If true the question needs to be asked who are these unknown gunmen?

Is this like Ukraine with snipers firing at both protesters and police or Italy’s Operation Gladio all over again paid mercenaries murdering civilians? Or is this a cover up that Mexican federal police and civilians just clashed in civil war to cover up the backlash?

“This reform is not about education, it is not about improving textbooks, extending class hours or renovating schools facilities, it is about firing and punishing teachers who do not fit the neoliberal standards of the law. It tries to get rid of the revolutionary tradition that has persisted in education since the early 1920s,” ~Academic and Analyst John M. Ackerman

It will be interesting to see what the scripted television media in the U.S. has to say about all this. One thing is for sure we can’t wait for them and we shouldn’t be silent. Let this crisis ring around the world and be the shots heard around the globe. The whole world is watching the teachers in Mexico stop murdering intelligent minds teaching isn’t a crime, protesting for your children’s future isn’t a crime especially in such a poverty driven country like Mexico.

Source: Revolution-News

Lying under oath about made up charges, kicking/punting a handcuffed person in the face, illegally searching thousands of people with no legal justification, shitting and pissing inside suspects homes on their beds and clothes during raids are just a few examples of what he witnessed in Baltimore.

Marijuana Legalization Leads to Less Violent Crime: Study

www.activistpost.com

The legalization of medical marijuana has sparked debate across the nation for decades.

Some have argued that medical marijuana’s legalization will lead to higher crime rates. But according to a new study at UT Dallas, legalization of medical cannabis is not an indicator of increased crime.

It actually may be related to reductions in certain types of crime, said Dr. Robert Morris, associate professor of criminology and lead author of the study published in the journal PLOS ONE. (more…)
