In light of the 50 Years Forward commemoration of the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham, OD and SBPDL are putting Birmingham, Alabama – where scenes of White resistance to integration prompted Congress to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – back in the spotlight for the world can see how The Magic City has fared under 34 years of a black majority city government.
The latest news out of Birmingham involves a double homicide:
“BESSEMER, Alabama – Slightly more than two years after two men were abducted in the Fairmont community, robbed and fatally shot outside an abandoned house in Mulga, both men charged in their killings have pleaded guilty and been sentenced.
As part of a plea agreement, Lajonas Deshane Powell, 23, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on two felony murder charges in the March 2011 slayings of Jerry Crawford, 58, and Willie Turner III, 35.
He will serve five years for each charge, and the sentences run consecutively, said Assistant Jefferson County District Attorney James Butler, a prosecutor on the case. …
The statement gave this account: Brownlee held the victims at gunpoint at Crawford’s home on Fairmont Way in Birmingham. Brownlee and Powell took a television from the home, bound the victims with electrical tape and forced them to climb into the trunk of Powell’s car. Brownlee left a note at the scene admitting to the robbery.
After driving to First Avenue in Mulga, they removed the victims from the trunk, and Brownlee killed them with a rifle at close range, shooting Crawford twice in the head and shooting Turner seven times.”
5 years for homicide?
In other Alabama news, ex-Auburn football player Antonio Goodwin was sentenced to 15 years in prison for his involvement in a home invasion robbery in Lee County. The Alabama fan who teabagged an LSU fan on video in a Krystal restaurant after the 2012 BCS National Championship was sentenced to 2 years in prison. A Montgomery woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison for filing false tax returns.
A search of the al.com archive for “sentenced + Birmingham” turns up some interesting hits. A Fairfield man who shot and killed the mother of his three children was sentenced to 3 years in prison. Jandre Lamar Cocrell, who beat a transient to death, was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Quientin Tarus James and Derrick Hubbard similarly got 5 years in prison for another homicide. Still another Birmingham man, Francis Williams, got 5 years in prison for homicide.
Just the other day, the communist Angela Davis addressed the Birmingham NAACP at the 6th Avenue Baptist Church. Before an overflowing crowd, Davis advocated the abolition of imprisonment as a punishment for crime, and said that the Civil Rights Movement was neither “the beginning or the end of the freedom struggle.”
In Birmingham in 2013, black people with names like “Lajonas Deshane” and “Jandre” are free to shoot and kill you … knowing they will get punished by a Democrat judge with nothing more than a slap on the wrist. That’s something you might want to think about before venturing into Regions Field to see the Birmingham Barons.
Black folks seem to have a pretty good handle on jury nullification. Why can’t we do the same for victimless crimes like tax evasion?
Well well well. Very interersting proposition.

Public safety collapse. Courts, correction facility, police department are overwhelmed by AA etc.
It should go part and parcel with state and county non-cooperation and nullification with anti-White federal laws. If BRA can blatantly ignore federal laws why shouldn’t we?
Before an overflowing crowd, Davis advocated the abolition of imprisonment as a punishment for crime . . ..
I mostly agree with this. What good does locking someone in a cell do? Prisons should be replaced with things like flogging, labour camps, banishment, or execution, depending on the severity of the crime.
Meanwhile, a White man , father of three, might be facing 25 years in prison for selling some pain pills to an undercover cop (who was pretending to be his friend!):
Welcome to our World, Year 2013.
He left a note at the crime scene?
Rudel makes a very interesting point.
In pre Norman England they didnt have prisons.
Just enslavement or death, modified by a weregeld.
Mary – Mulatto Holder has mandated the prosecution of Whites, in order to “equalize” the crime stats. That story is absolutely disgusting – but par for the course. I am 110% law abidng, and I caution every other White to be so, as well. Events are accelerating. The merde is hitting the oscillating device NOW. We don’t want any of our number to be trapped in a prison, in coming days.
There are so many laws on the books now that everyone is guilty of something or other. That’s how tyrannies work.
The way I see it is, flogging, branding, fines etc couldn’t be any worse then the current system and would cost a lot less
I always planned to vote for acquittal if I pulled jury duty, but I was never
selected. Personally I think Whites should do it all, ignore laws where we can, get on welfare where we can, jury nullification where we can, recruit where we can etc etc and stop looking for one big answer, one grand action
Why can’t we do the same for victimless crimes like tax evasion?
Because you’re tried before an administrative law judge, not a jury.

If you don’t already have one, you should go ASAP and get yourself a CCW (concealed carry weapon) permit. Here’s reciprocity for those from out of state:
Here’s how to get your permit:
