Recently, I told you about how race merchant/shakedown king and former coke dealer, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and the NAACP defended Black rapists in Palm Beach County, Florida. They stood up for these men who raped, tortured, and forced their Black victim to perform oral sex on her own teen son. It’s despicable.
And now the NAACP and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) are defending schoolkids who plotted to murder their teacher. Not sure how you can “advance” the cause of “colored people” as is the professed name of the NAACP, when you defend rapists (of “colored people” victims)and teacher-killers.
The NAACP and SCLC claim that these kids were just going to “to throw pies” at the teacher, and that we should “investigate” their teacher/would-be murder victim–that it’s her fault. But as reader Duane says:
These children brought weapons and other accessories for this attack – no pies.
Well, Duane, maybe the NAACP has a point. After all, aren’t a broken steak knife, tape, cheap handcuffs, ribbon, a crystal paperweight the ingredients for apple pie and not the equipment for tying up, stabbing, and crushing the skull of a human? Maybe this was just an episode of “Junior American Inventor”:
WAYCROSS, Ga. — NAACP leaders are calling for an expanded investigation that they believe may reveal the real reason nine Ware County third grade pupils are accused of plotting to harm their teacher.
They denied the children, three of whom have been charged with felonies, were plotting murder, as claimed by investigators.
“This whole case has been blown out of proportion,” said Edward DuBose, president of the NAACP’s Georgia State Conference.
The focus of the investigation should be on the events in the classroom that led to the investigation into the murder plot, DuBose said Tuesday during a news conference at a park across from the Ware County Board of Education offices in Waycross.
“These students were crying out for help,” he said. . . .
DuBose said the students’ teacher, Belle Carter, should be investigated for the classroom environment she created that led pupils to plot against her. [DS: ????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]
He said the children were planning to throw pies [DS: Uh-huh--knife and crystal paperweight pies; yummy!] at the teacher and put their heads on their desks to hide who threw the pies. But there was no murder plot, he said.
Nine children were involved in the plot to harm Carter, investigators said. Carter teaches an early intervention class at Center Elementary School in Waycross to help students who have fallen behind in their class work.
A 9-year-old girl, disciplined earlier for standing on a chair, brought a broken steak knife to school and others brought tape, cheap handcuffs, ribbon, a crystal paperweight and other items they intended to use against their teacher, Waycross Police Chief Tony Tanner said earlier. The 9-year-old, who is believed to have been the mastermind, is charged with aggravated assault for brandishing the knife near another student and with possession of a weapon on school grounds and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, police said. She is among seven students suspended for the rest of the school year.
While police haven’t identified the accused 8- 9- and 10-year-old children, Larry Lockey, president of the NAACP’s Ware County chapter, said most of the children are African-American.
DuBose called for the suspended children to return to the classroom but not with the same teacher. Counseling should also be offered to the children and their parents, he said.
“We need to meet, identify and correct the problem,” he said.
Asked about the possibility of another investigation, District Attorney Rick Currie said that is up to the police but it has been his experience that police always question everyone involved in an incident.
The Ware County Board of Education did not want to respond immediately to the NAACP’s statements but may issue a statement later, school board spokeswoman Theresa Martin said.
Lockey called the publicity surrounding the accusations against the children “disgusting.”
“The question is why would nine students come together to take some kind of action?” he said.
Lockey said Carter threw books in the classroom and forced one of her students to her knees to apologize to a classmate after an altercation.
“We’ve got to eliminate this type of abuse,” he said. The Rev. Fer-Rell Malone Sr., director of the Southeast Georgia chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said the accused children “felt like they were backed into a corner” because school administrators have not investigated complaints about the teacher.
Malone also said the accused children were not plotting to harm their teacher.
Again, steak-knife and crystal-paper-weight pies. Why didn’t Julia Child think of that? DE-LISH!
