Another NY DA mess. You make the call. New York City Cop Acquitted Three Years After Punching Suspect Who Refused to Leave Apple Store.

It seems as if the NY DA has a history of going after the good guy and losing. This current prosecutor sticks out like a sore thumb Adds credence to those who say affirmative action at work.

Officer Salvatore Provenzano, a 17-year veteran of the New York Police Department (NYPD), was charged with third-degree assault in 2023 — two years after a body camera captured the October 2021 interaction between him and Kamal Cheikhaoui, a man who had repeatedly refused to leave the Upper West Side store, CBS News reported.

Cheikhaoui, whom the New York Post described as a “repeat offender,” was reportedly acting “unruly” in the Apple Store before security asked him to leave, prompting Provenzano and other cops to step in to remove him.

Body camera footage that another responding officer captured begins with Cheikhaoui loudly demanding to purchase merchandise and trying to push past security as Provenzano takes him by the arm and leads him toward the exit. When the suspect gets loose from his grasp and suddenly turns, the officer strikes him in the face:

DA Bragg’s office convened a grand jury, which indicted the officer two years later.

Police union representatives happily announced on Thursday that the charges had finally been dropped.

The Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York (PBA), which represents more than 50,000 active and retired NYPD officers, said it was “grateful to get justice, but Manhattan prosecutors should never have brought the case in the first place.”

“This DA has to stop targeting New York City police officers and go after criminals. It needs to end now,” PBA President Patrick Hendry said during a press briefing. Bragg’s thoughts?

“We work in close partnership with the NYPD every day, and I have immense respect for the officers in uniform,” Bragg said in a statement. “I thank our prosecutors for their hard work and Judge Wiley for his careful and thoughtful consideration of this matter.”

How funny is this? Congressman Bowman: Suspension of Omar’s Daughter ‘Political’ Reprisal. For those who don’t remember, he was the affirmative action congressman who committed an insurrection when he tried to stop a congressional vote by pulling a fire alarm.

This clown thinks that three Pro Hamas Barnard College students were suspended for protesting at Columbia University. Bowman said that this was political. Whaaaat?

The students are far left radicals. Barnard is a WOKE shit hole. So where’s the politics? One of the students who should have known better is the daughter of a Pro Hamas Congresswoman. SMH.

Is AG James upset that she doesn’t get the Presidential suite now?

I guess the affirmative action queen thought that Trump wouldn’t have the bail so she had her sights on the Presidential suite. Well now that it’s gone, she’s not giving up. You believe this?

New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a notice on Thursday seeking more information about former President Donald Trump’s bond for the civil fraud case, which was issued by Knight Specialty Insurance Company.

KSIC is not admitted in New York, and James “takes exception to the sufficiency of the surety to the undertaking” given to Trump without a certificate of qualification being issued to the company, James said in the filing.

Stories we sometimes miss. Constitutional Scholars, Black Conservatives, Asian Americans praise ruling banning affirmative action.

Stories we sometimes miss. Constitutional Scholars, Black Bonservatives, Asian Americans praise ruling banning affirmative action.

A collective cheer rang out Thursday from a variety of constitutional scholars, black conservatives and Asian American students and supporters after the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a decision banning race-based admissions practices as unconstitutional.The nation’s highest court on Thursday released a 237-page opinion in Students for Fair Admissions v. President and Fellows of Harvard College in which a 6-3 majority determined that Harvard’s and the University of North Carolina’s admissions policies violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

“Today’s victory … belongs to thousands of sleepless high schoolers applying to colleges,” Calvin Yang, a member of Students for Fair Admissions and a rising junior at the University of California Berkeley, said at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

Yang said he was rejected from Harvard University because of its affirmative action policies and he chose to join SFFA to stand up for those who have suffered.

The victory “belongs to those with the last name of Smith or Lee, Chen or Gonzales; it belongs to all of us who deserve a chance. … We can rejoice in the fact that our children will be judged based on their achievements and merits alone,” Yang said at the news conference.

Several black conservatives also chimed in Thursday on social media and in news releases, arguing the decision is a win for the black community.

“Years from now, black students admitted to top schools will say Thank you Supreme Court for a decision that removes the perception the only reason I got in is due to my race. You re-established merit as the core criteria to be considered against a standard bar of excellence,” stated Ian Rowe, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, on Twitter.

 

The Project 21 Black Leadership Network also published a news release Thursday that cited a parade of scholars praising the decision.

“Using discriminatory practices to supposedly remedy past discrimination was always going to be a recipe for disaster,” said Project 21 Ambassador Christopher Arps. “…Today’s Supreme Court decision is a decisive victory towards Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream of a colorblind society.”

Project 21 Ambassador Melanie Collette added: “For years, blacks have been told their achievements are not solely their own, and that their skin color somehow played a role in their successes. It’s insulting and demeaning to suggest that blacks couldn’t have done this without affirmative action’s handout.”

The justices ruled in Students for Fair Admissions that the affirmative action policies instituted by these major universities are unconstitutional.

Constitutional scholar GianCarlo Canaparo with the Heritage Foundation also joined the chorus of praise for the decision.

“For too long the court has allowed universities to use stereotypes to racially balance their student bodies. Today that ends,” he told The College Fix via email on Thursday.

Constitutional scholar Adam Feldman, creator of Empirical Scotus, said the ruling has far-reaching implications for both public and private colleges and universities.

“This ruling not only encompasses public universities but through the Harvard decision also includes universities accepting federal funds as a violation of Title VI. Once the Supreme Court granted these cases the most obvious hypothesis was that the Court would overturn affirmative action with the new conservative supermajority,” Feldman told The Fix via email.

Both Feldman and Canaparo said they expect lower courts will experience more litigation as a result of the decision and admissions officials will now use loopholes to continue to administer race-based enrollment decisions.

Universities “may not use race explicitly, but they’ll give advantages and disadvantages to zip codes and high schools where they know they will find high proportions of the races they like and the races they don’t like,” Canaparo said.

Courts will be forced to “draw a line in the sand delineating how race can no longer play a role in university admissions,” Feldman added. “The magnitude of this decision and its expansiveness should not be understated.”

“It is tricky to predict repercussions beyond the decision’s clarity of race based admissions violating the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment and that this will be applied in all future and pending litigation.”

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion, and was joined by conservative Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett; Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson, the liberal side of the bench, dissented.

In his concurring opinion, Justice Gorsuch quoted Bostock, which determined that employers must exercise sex-blindness when making employment decisions. Even though Title IX – which provides clear protections for sex-specific spaces, including athletics – was not mentioned in the opinion, it is unclear how Justice Gorsuch’s inclusion of Bostock will impact future court decisions involving the Civil Rights Act, some scholars say.

Despite what litigation may follow, students say they are hopeful that the court’s majority opinion will provide a brighter future for students, properly awarding merit rather than judging students based on the color of their skin.

“Today’s decision has started a new chapter in history and the saga of Asian Americans in this country. It marks the promise of a new beginning,” Yang said at Thursday’s news conference.

Another student of color who weighed in Thursday was Grove City College’s Isaac Willour, who wrote a piece for the Lone Conservative headlined “Why I welcome the death of affirmative action.”

“The things that allow non-white Americans to rise in today’s society are the things that allow everyone to rise: ingenuity, dynamism, personal drive, and good choices. To claim that such virtues can be encapsulated or accurately measured by skin color is inherently racist,” wrote Willour, who is also an alumnus of The College Fix.

No Virginia, MSNBC is not a News Channel. There’s a misconception that MSNBC is a News Channel. That’s crazy. Nothing but NBC News rejects and dregs of Society.

This latest fiasco has the big wigs at NBC throwing each other under the bus with the Ronna incident. Even the AA person who was reported to be a supporter of hiring Ronna has back tracked.

We’re told Jones was sending individual texts and making phone calls to her talent in an effort to distance herself from the hire after the backlash.

Civil Rights Victory. UMinn Law School will no longer give preference to minorities for fellowship.

Civil Rights Victory. UMinn Law School will no longer give preference to minorities for fellowship. For the past 50 years or so, white progressives were trying to make up for their history of racism.

Their Civil War position, Jim Crow Laws, etc. Some would even stoop so low as to marry minorities in hopes of not being labeled racist. So how did they think they could fix the situation? Discriminate against whites in coming up with affirmative action. Schools and Unions were the biggest abusers of AA.

A University of Minnesota Law School diversity fellowship will now give equal consideration to White and male applicants following a civil rights complaint. They even discriminated against males of any group.

A University of Minnesota Law School full-ride diversity fellowship sponsored by the Jones Day law firm will now consider white students and male students as applicants, a change prompted by a complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.

Yes Virginia there still is Affirmative Action and it must be abolished.

Views: 16

Yes Virginia there still is Affirmative Action and it must be abolished. Minority and Female Attorney’s were getting special treatment. Hopefully that’s over.

Last Friday America First Legal (AFL) announced a vital win in the fight for the Constitution and the rule of law when Chief Judge Nancy J. Rosenstengel and Judge Staci M. Yandle rescinded their standing orders favoring minority and female attorneys solely based on their race and sex, and apologized, following AFL’s judicial conduct complaint.

AFL’s complaint, dated January 252024, alleged that three judges in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois had issued standing orders mandating preferential treatment for the female and minority attorneys arguing before them, in violation of the Rule for Judicial-Conduct and Judicial-Disability Proceedings 4(a), Judicial Code of Conduct Canon 2(A), and the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Whenever we see Affirmative Action, we must fight this evil injustice. It still to this day is a quota tool for Unions who bring in the bottom of the barrel just to say they don’t discriminate.

If not for the Progressive Democrats during the Jim Crow era, we never would have had AA as a poor excuse to correct the racist progressive Democrat policies.
