CNN´s Don Lemon: ´Should
white men be profiled?´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 12/23/2012 2:13:08 PM

Throughout the day on Saturday, CNN teased an upcoming segment pertaining to the recent Newtown, Conn. tragedy where the premise was “Should white men be profiled?” The discussion, which aired on “CNN Newsroom” hosted by Don Lemon, was based on a Salon.com column by David Sirota published just days after the Newtown shooting. Sirota explained his reasoning and suggested there was a double standard. “I think we should ask the question, ‘Why is America, 30 percent white guys and 70 percent of the shootings in the last many decades have been at the hands of white guys?’” Sirota said.

Comments:
I´ll take "Things you couldn´t get away with if it were another ethnic group for $500, Alex."

It´s come to this

I read somewhere that if guns were taken from non-whites, America´s murder rate would be comparable to Norways. I think the solution is clear. Couldn´t hurt. It only one life is saved, etc.

Where did that 70% figure come from. How many of the 450+ murders in Chicago, or the many more shootings that didn´t end in a death, involve white men?

Great idea ... right after they finish profiling Hispanics (illegal aliens), Middle Eastern men (terrorists), and black guys who dress and act like thugs or who travel in packs. /s

Don baby, it´s not white men killing black youths in Chicago.

Or don´t those deaths matter to you?

Agree with #6. Black and Hispanic murder rates are far higher than whites. And non Hispanic White was 64% in 2010, not 30%.

Progressives like to make up their facts so any conclusions drawn from them are also fantasy.

Interesting info - documentation at site.

Only a few systematic accounts of the race and ethnicity of serial killers exist. There is an exhaustive study of African American serial killers (Homicide Studies 2005; 9; 271) by criminologist Anthony Walsh, and also Eric W. Hickey’s book, Serial killers and their victims, Brooks/Cole, 1997. Walsh identified 90 African American and 323 white American serial murderers, all men operating between 1945 and 2004. (Though Asians, Hispanics and Native Americans were not included in the study, their addition would not alter the fact that most serial killers are white men.) African American serial killers made up 22% of Walsh’s sample, a figure in close agreement Hickey’s enumeration. But, as blacks number well below 22% of the U.S. population, they are actually overrepresented among the ranks of serial killers — roughly by a factor of 2.

"So it turns out that while whites make up a numerical superiority of serial killers, blacks make up a much higher percentage of serial killers relative to their percentage of the population".

I would hope they already are being profiled - just like other ethnic groups should be in certain conditions.

The whole shooting just reeks of ´special snowflakeness´ which is really a white thing, probably an asian one too but there haven´t been enough crazed asian shooters as of yet to differentiate.

You have a special snowflake in danger of losing his status, Adam Lanza, in a sea of special snowflakes that is CT, who shot his mom and too revenge on a whole roomful of special snowflakes who still had potential.

And yeah, that´s a white thing.

In an announcement on his Twitter account, CNN political director Mark Preston announced former Yahoo News Washington bureau chief David Chalian would be named the supervising producer for the reincarnation of CNN’s “Crossfire.” But Chalian is perhaps best known for the controversial remarks he made back in August 2012 while still working at Yahoo News. While covering the Republican National Convention in Tampa, he disparaged GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the Republican Party, which had decided to go ahead with the convention despite a hurricane making landfall in the southeastern U.S. “They’re not concerned at all,”

On Sunday’s broadcast of “Fox & Friends,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter explained how the trial of George Zimmerman — who was found “not guilty” Saturday night for the murder of Trayvon Martin — proved what she had written about in her most recent book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama.” “[I] tweeted out ‘hallelujah,’ because this was a media-led mob, and an innocent man almost went to prison for 30 years because of, well, Al Sharpton stirring up hatred and creating a narrative for which there was never any evidence and after this long trial there

Immediately upon the announcement of the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision on Tuesday in which the Section 4 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act was declared unconstitutional in the Shelby County v. Holder case, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton took to the airwaves to express his frustrations. Sharpton, the host of “PoliticsNation,” called on the president and others to speak out against the decision, but noted despite all the “voter suppression,” there was a record turnout. “I think the first thing we want to see is the president’s continued commitment to protecting voters around the country,” Sharpton said.

On Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama’s speech on Wednesday at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. The speech was sparsely attended compared to the speech Obama had made at the same venue back in 2008 during his first presidential election campaign. And as part of the “All-Star Panel” Friday “Lightning Round” segment, Krauthammer won the privilege of posing the question to his colleagues on how to define the speech. “Obama gave a speech in Germany this week,” Krauthammer said.

On his Friday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin challenged support from for this current of immigration reform coming from prominent Republicans, particularly Jeb Bush and Karl Rove. Levin, author of “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America,” began his attack by arguing some members of the Republican Party make policy gestures without mentioning the U.S. Constitution. “It amazes me how few Republicans in elected office actually talk about the Constitution,” Levin said. “They have no more respect for it, no more concern about its boundaries and limits than the left. That’s why I say they’re neo-statist.”

Lerner, who had asserted her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination during an appearance before the House Oversight Committee in a hearing on Wednesday, was the object of ridicule by Steyn on the show. “Is this a republic or is it not?” Steyn said. “Because, if it is what a republic is then you guys wasted your whole time with your revolution — because they are basically saying

Long before the Internal Revenue Service revealed it had improperly targeted conservative 501(c)(4) groups, a group of Democratic senators led by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer urged the IRS to do just that. The IRS’s admission last Friday that it had singled out tea party and other groups for extra audits and delays has raised concerns that President Barack Obama’s administration quietly attempted to stymy opponents through intimidation. But many prominent Democrats — including Montana Sen. Max Baucus, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State and the New York Times editorial board — had been

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians.

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."

Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?

After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.
