Rudolph Keitt - A Tale Of Criminal Character

Rudolph Keitt 
You may have missed this story because of the Amtrak accident in Philly.
On May 12th, Tuesday afternoon, according to Philly News, 4 Police Officers were injured when the driver of a car lost control and tried to run them over.
Rudolph Keitt was the driver, and police ended up shooting him (because he had crashed into a fire truck, other cars, and had hit 4 cops) to stop the threat to innocent bystanders.  
Of course, Keitt's family is blaming his erratic actions   on the fact he has a history of seizures and had open heart surgery (last year). 
There will be outrage as a medical excuse is used to justify the fact Keitt tried to run over cops. 
But let's not forget that if you have active seizures, for the safety of the public, you are not legally allowed to drive. So why was he driving if he is 'prone to seizures'? 
Also, Keitt has a long criminal history; Kevin Keitt (his brother) acknowledged Rudolph had an "extensive" criminal history.
Rudolph Keitt's record includes charges of aggravated assault and carrying a firearm without a license in 1991, resisting arrest in 1995, and a drug-dealing charge in 2010. According to court records, he was convicted of the assault, firearms, and drug charges, and pleaded guilty to resisting arrest.

Let's see, if the cops wouldn not have tried to stop Keitt  - he could have killed innocent bystanders, including children, and the cops would be blamed for not stopping him.  

Also - who paid for his previous heart surgery? Were his heart problems caused by drug use? If so, who paid for his heart surgery? I hope he used the money he made from selling drugs to pay his hospital bills. There are more people that don't break the law, live a good life, and can't afford life saving surgeries because they aren't 'poor' enough - there are many military vets who have serious medical problems but get ignored - something is inherently wrong with this picture. People talk about 'fairness' - and 'justice' - how is it that a criminal receives medical care while honorable, law abiding, courageous men and women are not only ignored by the Veterans Administration  -but have died from being ignored

Imagine that Keitt had driven onto the Amtrak train tracks and caused the derailment that happened - what then? 
Well, the BEM (Black Exploitation Machine of Al Sharpton and Obama Admin) would have said that 6 deaths and almost 200 injured were caused by Oppression and somehow, they would justify the deaths of the Amtrak victims, claim it will take more government to save us, and erect a statue to Rudolph Keitt. 

It's really time to take Martin Luther Jr's suggestion to heart: "Judge a person on his character, not his color."

Keitt's character was one of corruption. Perhaps he was 'trying to get his life back on the right path' - but I won't rush to judge the men and women who risked their lives, and now their careers, because they acted quickly to stop a threat to the public, even though the police have become the favorite villain of the media and the Obama administration.

“There is apparently some connection between dissatisfaction with oneself and a proneness to credulity. The urge to escape our real self is also an urge to escape the rational and the obvious. The refusal to see ourselves as we are develops a distaste for facts and cold logic. There is no hope for the frustrated in the actual and the possible. Salvation can come to them only from the miraculous, which seeps through a crack in the iron wall of inexorable reality. They ask to be deceived. What Stresemann said of the Germans is true of the frustrated in general: "They pray not only for their daily bread, but also for their daily illusion." The rule seems to be that those who find no difficulty deceiving themselves are easily deceived by others. They are easily persuaded and led.”

― Eric Hoffer

“What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”

Courage and Character Will Shine Over Shadow

When a cop is killed in the line of duty, I change my Facebook profile to a mourning badge and then leave it up until after the cop’s funeral. It seems that this year, my profile picture has featured a mourning badge than pictures of myself (or family, dogs, bacon and martinis). I know that people have put my on “mute” or unfriended me. They miss the happy go laura (you think I don’t?) and dislike being reminded of negative things. I feel a tremendous amount of anger and sadness when a cop is killed and it’s not because I’m married to a cop (who simply believes dying in the line of duty is part of the risk) and he is a bit mortified at my outrage . It’s not because my uncle was a State Trooper. It’s not because my father’s nephews were/are cops (one in Baltimore, who has just resigned, thanks Mayor Blake!). I’m outraged because I grew up being taught to respect police, fireman, military, – anyone who has the courage to put on a uniform, go out in any kind of weather, deal with harsh conditions, harsh people, doing what other people do not have the balls to do. I’ve watched as not only the media, but the leadership of this country, have villainized the actual heroes of America. I’ve watched as criminals are turned into saints and heroes are turned into devils. My parents, my teachers, my community, taught me that right is right and wrong is wrong. Not that I always listened, but I had that knowledge, that goodness, to strive for. It’s funny, looking back, all the times I ‘partied’ have absolutely no value today. What I do value are the accomplishments, the times I rose above adversity, the times I was able to turn obstacles into opportunity. The times I challenged myself to improve and I did. When I was growing up, the most outrageous show was Three’s Company. A man living with two single woman? The scandal! Now we have a media and culture that celebrify teen pregnancy, create fake rape stories and celebrify terrorists on magazine covers. We have a culture that believe it’s okay to place a crucifixion in a bottle of piss and offend Christians because it’s “art” but don’t draw a cartoon of Muhammad because we one religion (the religion that beheads Christians, gays, and women) is better than another. I still would not call myself a ‘grown up’ – but I would say that I have ‘wised up.’ My experiences in life have taught me that the more we can trust each other, the more we can pursue personal dreams. The more we can trust each other, the more confidence and kindness we show. The more we distrust – the less confidence we have in others, and in ourselves. The less confidence we have, the less courage we have to seek out independent dreams. Individuality, independence is what America was built on. Grit. Moxie. Determination. Trust. Anyone who has ever been in a bad relationship knows that a lack of trust kills happiness. A lack of trusts means you spend much of your time looking for signs of cracks – time that you could spend doing something way more productive. Time wasted wondering what you did, why you weren’t good enough – which erodes your spirit, your sense of value. The last 7 years, our country has been in a relationship with cheaters. Cheaters in the media. Cheaters as leaders. They contradict their stories. They outright lie (Brian Williams, I’m looking at you). They deceive. They blame the person they are cheating on – they blame loyal Americans who work hard but the media and the cheaters disguised as leaders push the idea hardworking Americans should be ashamed because of their skin color (white) and aren’t doing enough to help the less fortunate . Of course, they blame middle America for not doing enough as they fly around the world in jets, ride in limos, and use personal chefs and pay low wages to the illegal aliens they hire to mow their lawns. They blame the military. They blame cops. They blame job creators. They divide people into groups. Men Vs Women. Heterosexuals vs Homosexuals. Christians vs Muslims. Street Smart Vs Book Smart. Teachers Vs Parents. Blacks Vs White. Americans Vs Illegal Aliens. Old Vs Young. Growing up, I never, ever saw color. You were judged by your actions, not your skin color. In the last 7 years, we’ve gone from judging people on their actions, to judging people by their skin color, their choice of profession, their political and religious affiliation. Everything I was taught is backwards. If we live in a society where it is better to be corrupt than courageous, to be silent (or worse yet, to be a siren for the shady and to lick the boot of the swindlers due to a lack of spine), then everything that America was built on has crumbled. The men and women who sacrificed their lives so that we may have machines to make our coffee in under 5 seconds, sit in cars that drive for us, and send people messages while we are sitting on the toilet… they have sacrificed for nothing. And so, that is why I feel fresh anger every time a cop is killed and the media would have you believe that cops are the enemy, criminals are our friends. Virtue is ugly and Violence is beautiful. Eric Hoffer once stated; “Hatred is the most accessible and comprehensive of all the unifying agents. Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a god, but never without a belief in a devil.” When the media and the ‘leaders’ of America, have, for the last 7 years, turned their attention into turning the very people who are the most courageous of all; out military and police, into “devils” – distracting the public with the very few bad examples, I fear not for the lives of those I love, but for the fabrics that were woven to create the Independence of America: Courage. Character. Honor. Determination. Trust. United We Stand. Divided We Fall. And every time a police officer falls in the line of duty and the media breeze over it and Obama sends representatives to the funerals of criminals but not police or military, we lose not just a hero who’s sacrifice is ignored, we lose a bit of the very fabric, the values, that make America strong. But as long as we are aware of what is happening, how we are being undermined, we will rise above adversity. As long as we acknowledge the truth that the only 'oppression' in America, is the oppression of courage and character at the hands of the corrupt, we will triumph. This is America. And in America, we shine over shadow. Rest In Peace NYPD Brian Moore - 5/4/15

No Justice For Iasha Rivers

You probably don't know about Iasha Rivers. In 2014, she was an executive for Macy's in New York city. beautiful and self-less, she devoted many hours volunteering for those less fortunate.  She attended a party. She woke up the next morning in a man's bedroom. A very old man. A very rich man. She was bruised and bleeding from her vagina. She didn't remember what happened. 
She went home and confided her fear to a friend. The friend urged her to go to the ER - it sounded as though she might have been slipped something in her drink. 
Iasha Rivers faced a huge problem. If she accused the old powerful rich man of rape - what would happen to her? 
Well, she mustered up her courage and filed charges, as reported by the New York Daily News on October 14th, 2014.  I mean, she was on the board of the National Action Network. Which is about the protection and support of the black community. 
Oh, wait, did I mention that Iasha is a young beautiful black woman? The man she accused of raping her is white. Old. White. Rich. A civil rights attorney, as a matter of fact. His name is Sanford Rubenstein. He was actually kicked out of sex club a few weeks after the rape accusation. And a his ex-girlfriend (also black and very young) asked her to have an orgy
You would think, with all the rage against the establishment, the major news stations would report on this story. Nah, just a few New York papers who aren't afraid of the Al Sharpton machine gun. 
Oh, did I mention that Sanford Rubenstein is a life long friend of Al Sharpton? 
You would think Jezebel would report on it. They are pro-woman after all. Nah...though they believe women who drink and party shouldn't be 'shamed' if they are taken advantage of...but Iasha Rives? Well, she's black. So I guess Jezebel doesn't think she is important.
All these protests for the rights of black criminals. Male. Black Criminals. But when the  Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said they didn't have enough evidence to charge white lawyer Rubenstein, there was no outrage. No charges of white/lawyerly bias. And Al Sharpton, who makes a living being outraged by white people mistreating black people...nothing. 
All the civil rights groups tweeting out support for Iasha Rivers...nothing.
The war on women? If there is a war, it's apparent it's the left shooting us down. Take liberal Linda Stasi, columnist at New York Daily News - who did bother to write about the accusation, and said Iasha was at fault for KNOWING Al Sharpton hangs around with slime balls and Iasha deserved it because she allowed herself to get drunk (what is she didn't get drunk? What if she was slipped a drug and the New York DA is covering up for his liberal buddy?). The hypocrisy of the left is amazing - I hope Iasha Rivers realizes the mistake she made wasn't in believing in civil rights, it was believing Democrats actually care. They don't. They will sell out in a second for the sake of power, money, street cred.  
Is it because she's not a man? Is it because she's a smart woman who works and doesn't make a living deal drugs or stealing? 
The bottom line is this - Al Sharpton is a dirty, filthy, man who exploits black people, black women, and makes his living inciting hate. 
He turned on his employee. He turned on a 'sister' in favor of an equally dirty, corrupt 'mister' - but I guess because Sanford Rubenstein is rich, white is right. 
The spiral downward of America and our character, our ability to trust those in charge, lands squarely in the lap of those who "lead" our country. 
And the person who 'leads' our country is best friends with Al Sharpton (gee - Obama has young daughters who could grow up to look like Iasha Rivers...)
Al Shartpon, who owes millions in back taxes (meanwhile small family businesses are being locked down and extorted). 
Al Sharpton has been accused by Eric Garner's family of exploiting them for his own purpose (money and power).
Corporations have accused Al Sharpton of extorting them for cash in exchange for not attacking them using his "grass roots" protesters to harass them with racism charges. 
Corruption clings to Al Sharpton like spider webs in dark corners of a tall ceiling. 
Anywhere you see Al Sharpton, someone is being paid off and someone is being bought someone is being bribed.  
The mayor of Baltimore welcomed Al Sharpton and praised him. After. of course, she made sure the police did not offend looters and rioters. After of course, she said criminals should be given space to destroy. 
We can never know what happened between Iasha Rivers and Sanford Rubenstein. But from the media silence, and more importantly, Al Sharpton and NAN silence's after Iasha River's sexual assault,  we can for sure say one thing; Al Sharpton doesn't care about justice for blacks - he only cares about the color green. 
The more division he creates between black vs white, everyone vs cops,  - the more his crony pal's at the White House will be called in to 'control' the chaos. 
I don't know Iasha Rivers - but I can only imagine how heart broken she is that a cause she once believed in totally turned against her when she did the right thing. 
Where's the justice and outrage for Iasha Rivers?
Well, I guess she'll have to have a sex change operation, sell drugs, steal, and then be killed by a white cop. Because, according to liberal media, the civil rights movement, Jezebel, NOW, NAN, and Al Sharpton, a black woman being raped by a rich white guy is justice.
Hands Up For Al Sharpton - so he can take your wallet. Legs up for creepy Sanford Rubenstein so he can assault you. Eyes down when you see truth - because apparently, it will blind you.
