PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY JUNE 7, 2021) — In Minneapolis, the denizens of the deep are at it again, rioting, burning, and looting.

The latest occurred when U.S. Marshals tried to served an arrest warrant on Winston Boogie Smith on federal weapons violations.

Boogie was parked in his car. Marshals say Boogie did not comply with orders, resisted arrest, pulled a gun, and fired multiple times. They returned fire, killing the man.

Smith is black.

After the incident, Boogie’s family said the 32-year-old was trying “to turn over a new leaf.”

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before.

The family said the cops were “using his past to tarnish his character.”

———- ooo ———-

Here are some of the posts Smith made on social media:

“We got guns and bullet proof vest too or should be able to get em… why not just rush these fucks and start this war they keep asking for!” Smith wrote on Facebook.

“Fuck justice anyway bitch justice is an eye for eye u kill one of mine we need one of yours that’s justice! Right or wrong fuck being right cuz they keep doing us wrong.

“I’m down with the burn everything government not touch shit else I don’t even need to loot I’ll buy my shit just kill them dirty ass cops off we tired of being scared at the red light!” he wrote.

———- ooo ———-

THE PLANET doesn’t know anything about Boogie’s past, but we’re going to take a wild guess it didn’t include serving as an altar boy or walking little old ladies across the street.

This is the latest in what promises to be a long, hot summer.

———- ooo ———-

Submitted for your approval  by THE PLANET:

  • The California Legislature has introduced a bill that would ban stores selling toys from separating products into separate sections for boys and girls. Reason: Lawmakers say children need to be free in determining their gender identification. Putting “boy toys” and “girl toys” in separate aisles causes trauma for some children.
  • At Bard College in Great Barrington, a young black woman claims she was attacked, dragged into the woods, and assaulted by a white guy. The entire community is turned upside down. The authorities investigate. Turns out to be a hoax. The student is not punished.
  • Dr. Seuss must be purged of racist messages.
  • Turner Classic Movies must put apologies and disclaimers ahead of such films a “Gone with the Wind,” “A Streetcar Named Desire,” and “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?”
  • Brigham’s Women hospital in Boston treats patients on the basis of race, preference to blacks and people “of color.”
  • In journalism, many newsroom stylesheets governing domestic violence say that when a woman assaults a man it is “preventive self-defense,” but if it is the other way around it is reported as an “unprovoked attack.”
  • Albion College was put into a racial uproar by graffiti praising the Ku Klux Klan and demanding that “all niggers get off campus.” Turns out that security cameras revealed the culprit to be a 21-year-old black student, who admitted the offense. Authorities will not prosecute what they admit is a hate crime because the lad is black and is excused from his actions because American society is racist.
  • In Houston, the beat writer for the Houston Chronicle covering the Texans of the NFL was fired because he floated the possibility that some of the women who have accused star QB Deshaun Watson of sexual misconduct might be in it for the money and that Watson might not be guilty in those cases.

———- ooo ———-

Something’s going on in America. It’s a backward momentum eating away at the nation’s foundations.

It’s a raging torrent that draws its power from the faults of the past, a force-feed of disastrous social engineering meant to instantly, legislatively, through social pressure correct this country’s past failings with respect to race and gender. There are few good intentions behind these measures, only a form of “restorative justice” that through blind hatred threatens to corrode the very freedoms that once set the USA apart and ahead of other nations.

The clue to deciphering why this effort will only leave America in the dust lies in that phrase “restorative justice.” The oxymoron ignores the meaning of justice. By definition, justice IS restorative. “Restorative justice” actually means injustice.

How can that possibly be good for any of us?

THE PLANET wonders.

Real racism exists in the local schools and it is off the charts!
They don’t even report the stats anymore at BHRSD, Pittsfield, Richmond, and Lenox.
Schools are turning a blind eye to racism because they don’t want people to know what’s going on and how bad it’s really gotten.
When parents stop caring, this is what you get. When school officials can’t pull their head out of their a$$ this is what you get.
It’s high time we consolidated schools in Pittsfield and sent some of the dead weight packing.

I feel that life is too short for humankind to focus on conflict and violence. But for some reason, we waste much of our lives on negativity, power, money and wanting to be better than everyone else whether it be morally, financially, and/or powerfully. Class and Status is our country’s failing. We are all just people instead of a few of us being rich and powerful living in a gated community far away from the rest of society. Life shouldn’t be so weird! We make it that way because we are all really a bunch of insecure jerks.

I didn’t realize how long this brainwashing has been going on. Do to the pandemic I got a little hooked on watching tv series in whole. Some of them were over 10 years old and talking about systemic racism. These shows were aimed at the teenage and younger crowd for the most part. This leads us to the 20 something in today’s society out there marching for any cause they can find even if they don’t understand it. The only racism I have seen systematically for the past 60+ years has been affirmative action. My understanding at the time was so society could help the black in America get help finding the American dream do to slavery and racism. Is this the American dream they were looking for? Hopefully the silent majority will reawaken and help save America

No wonder she can not keep her own duties in check, she’s taking care of so much else –

Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington’s office serves all 32 cities and towns in Berkshire County. The office represents the Commonwealth in more than 7,500 criminal cases per year in Berkshire Superior Court, three district courts, three juvenile courts, Massachusetts Appeals Court, and Supreme Judicial Court. The office works closely with the State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, the Berkshire Law Enforcement Task Force, and collaborates with local police departments across the county. A dedicated staff of more than 50 prioritizes public safety, empowering victims and witnesses through services and support, and building a safe community for everyone and especially the most vulnerable.

In Nazi Germany the unholy alliance was between IBM and Germany. Now it’s many major companies in this country that are in bed with Marxist/Communist countries. They want the big bucks from those billions of people in China and will sell our country over to China to get it. The same with our politicians who are getting rich from China. Many Americans are just clueless about what is going on and think this is all about racism and climate change. They are missing the big picture of what is happening worldwide and how Communism is on the rise again and this never ends well. Totalitarianism is what we will end up with if we keep down this path.

The people of North Korea are starving and very poor under Marxism just as people in the Soviet Union and others under Marxism rule were. Kim Jong-Un is fat, as was nearly every leader of the USSR. This wasn’t due to some weird quirk in gene’s that the communist dictators have that caused an overweight problem, it’s because they were living well while their people suffered. North Koreans are eating dirt and poor. Kim and the rest are eating whatever the hell they want and as much of it as he

“There are few good intentions behind these measures, only a form of “restorative justice” that through blind hatred threatens to corrode the very freedoms that once set the USA apart and ahead of other nations.”

The good intentions are legion, not few. The motivation is not blind hatred, it is the desire to get it right in moving our civilization forward. What sets the USA apart from other nations is not only freedom of speech but also the ethical stance to get it right. As for Boogie, the existence of extreme cases on the left AND right are fringe elements that do not contribute to our advancement as a civilization.

Justice is indeed restorative — but left to its own devices it just doesn’t get the job done. It requires the tweaking of thinking individuals who have the best interests of humanity at heart.

But if they do start to push hard on the reparations, sympathy for the black community will plummet. White people today should not have to pay for what white people did 150 years ago.

Adam Hinds’ first vote on Beacon Hill was for the 40 percent legislative pay raise bill in early-2017 that cost state taxpayers $18 million. Adam Hinds’ accepted 3 legislative pay raises at the beginning of 2021. Adam Hinds and his wife bought a $690,000 home in Amherst, Massachusetts, while he rents an apartment in Pittsfield where he serves as the Berkshire based State Senator on Beacon Hill. Adam Hinds is raising big money to campaign for a statewide political office in 2022. Adam Hinds is preparing to release a public policy report sometime during this Summer of 2021 on raising state government taxes. Adam Hinds is going to vote for the surtax on millionaires who live in Massachusetts.

If Adam Hinds wants Beacon Hill to raise taxes on the working class and wealthy who live in Massachusetts, then he should lead by example and vote to cut his own legislative pay and perks by at least 50 percent. Who is Adam Hinds representing in Boston? Does he really believe that the people who live in his Berkshire based legislative district support his public record of enriching himself, buying a $690,000 home outside of his legislative district, raising big money to further his political ambitions, releasing a report to hike state taxes, and voting for the surtax on millionaires who live in Massachusetts? How does any of Adam Hinds votes, choices, and tax hikes have anything to do with the actual people he supposedly represents in Boston? The answer is that it has nothing whatsoever to do with the people who live in his Western Massachusetts legislative district. Adam Hinds is the most outrageous politician EVER!!!!

It’s amazing that threatening businesses, citizens and everyone in between while burning, looting and destroying cities (not to mention that autonomous zone where police aren’t allowed and people are beaten and raped) and of course blocking the flow of goods by barricading roads is considered a social protest

yet, January 6th is a terrorist insurrection.

I love how everyone is a FOXNews acolyte, yet the rest of you are clearly CNN sheep and are completely unaware. Just two sides of the same coin.

NOT A SINGLE PERSON WOULD HAVE CARED ABOUT JANUARY 6 IF THE PRECIOUS POLITICIANS WEREN”T SCARED OR THREATENED

When there are racists teaching classes about racism there’s no hope.
Edgerton was at the Richmond elementary school today spewing her racist views thanks to Wrong Way and the DA’s office.
“If you are not a person of color you can not really know what racism is.”
That is what they are teaching little kids in Berkshire County. They are teaching racism as a way to combat perceived racism.
I’m sure somebody got paid or there was a grant to fund this indoctrination.
This is a school where they have very racist teachers and a couple really racist kids. A kid wrote the Nword in the bathroom and drew some penis picks so they sent Shirley out to school them.

Does Shirley also mention her family dealing drugs and bringing more scourge and violence into Pittsfield, or does that not factor into her “teachings.”

Does Wrong Way put on a class about what’s good for me, is not for ye: not paying her property taxes, her traffic citations resulting in her DL being suspended, a moving violation while license was suspended in a state owned (taxpayer) vehicle.

Could you get away with that and keep your job?

I know, it’s all the white man’s fault. Right Shirley, or Andrea?

Speaking of white men, any chance Helen Moon will post her case number of her “arrest?” Three shootings in three days. Defund the police Helen? That’s your answer?

From the Law Offices of Robert D. Sullivan, Jr.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
It is truly a sad day when I feel ethically obligated to call for the resignation of Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington. However, I feel compelled to do so after listening to members of the bar on both sides of the aisle of the criminal justice system, among countless residents of Berkshire County. DA Harrington has recently done something, which in light of her previous unethical behavior, requires me to speak out. Specifically, The DA has written an ex parte letter to the RAJ (Regional Administrative Judge) calling for the removal of District Court Judge Jennifer Tyne. Not only does this run afoul of the ethical rules regarding ex parte communications, especially on substantive issues, but it is an attack on the system through completely improper channels. For the DA, who ran in part on the rights of women involved in domestic violence, to seek the removal of the single female District Court judge that regularly sits in Berkshire County, is appalling. Judge Tyne is a fair and impartial jurist, who will hold any attorney accountable for not being prepared or not performing to the high standards of the practice of law, regardless of gender and race. No rational human being supports domestic violence, but this attack on Judge Tyne is completely inappropriate substantively and ethically. This comes just a month after DA Harrington decided to send an ex parte email to the current sitting Superior Court Justice, again afoul of the ethical rules of professional conduct. She even had the audacity to request a personal meeting with said judge. In light of the troubling news during her short tenure as District Attorney, including driving unlicensed and driving the wrong way down a one-way street, her firing of her public records officer because the public records officer wanted to follow the law and not hide public information that the DA did not wish to become public, and her attempt to bribe a member of the office with a severance package in exchange for the signing of a non-disclosure agreement, I cannot sit by idly any further. Does the law not apply to the District Attorney? My colleagues on the defense bar and even within the prosecutors office do not feel comfortable issuing a statement on these issues because their careers and family require them to remain quiet. I don’t have that fear. I will not remain quiet any longer, and on behalf of many attorneys and residents of Berkshire County I believe DA Harrington has violated the ethical rules of the practice of law, and has violated her oath of office. As a longtime practitioner in Berkshire County, as both a prosecutor and a defense lawyer, I am compelled to call for her resignation. The Office of the District Attorney is political in that it is an elected position, however the work of a District Attorney should never be political. The time has come for the residents of Berkshire County to be represented by an ethical and dedicated prosecutor, not someone who runs afoul of the rules to gain political advantage. I remind my fellow friends and colleagues that the only case ever tried by DA Harrington was lost, and she prayed for relief from the court that the Defendant, whom she represented, was the victim of ineffective assistance of counsel, an attack on her own ability to effectively litigate. The time has come for new leadership in the DA’s office, and whomever that may be will have my support.

I’m intrigued as to your concerns with Judge Tyne, she seems a competent and fair jurist.
Formerly an exemplary public defender, whom was advanced to judgeship, due to her refusal to comprise her integrity and horse trade clients. Which former lead counsel Nathaniel Green did routinely, with nearly 50% of cases he handled being overturned on appeal due to ineffective assistance of counsel.
NAT the RAT helped put 100s of innocent victims of local law enforcement in jail.
Tyne would have been next lead counsel, leveling the field. The new lead counsel is no better than the previous, much like the present District attorneys no better than last.

Prove it, Betit. Which of Green’s cases were overturned on appeal due to ineffective assistance of counsel? How many cases did he try? OK, now that you’ve done the research and tallied the raw data, let us know how you arrived at the 50% number. You may include in your research those cases overturned with multiple appellate issues as long as the court (Appeals Court and SJC included) found reversible error under Strickland.

I’m no fan of attorney Sullivan, but his courage in writing this letter may sway my opinion. He barely scratches the surface, I’m doubtful he fails to understand the District attorneys office routinely perjures themselves and suburbs perjury and extorts pleas via fraudulently obtained dangerous holds and fraudulent use of mental health examinations.( he commonwealth can hold defendants 60 days for observation at misery mountain-bridgwater – which does not go against dangerous hold- then after defendants been detained 60+120 days just prior to hearing move case to superior court and easily get another 180 day dangerous hold.
The helpless jailed defendants routinely submit to thier public pretenders and District attorneys extortion and take a 6 month sentence with credit for time served.

I’m sure when you walk into the Clairmont’s compound, it is vibrant and dynamic. And maybe even inclusive?

But the downtown area of Pittsfield is a shi**ole. It’s dangerous and gang ridden.

But she does have the trash picked up downtown and fixes the main road. She is not likewise concerned however, about the rest of the city.
She is going to leave a HUGE effing mess for any mayor who follows her into the corner office. (though if that individual is a special interest mayor he or she will not give a rats ass either)

Dear Planet Valenti,
Word is out that you are talking all things Restorative Justice so I thought I would add my perspective as a Victim of the War on Drugs. You see, I chose to sell marijuana or Cannabis as we are now calling it. I keep forgetting! Where was I? I just got out of prison so I am a true warrior. I “distributed” marijuana and to help me, I engaged some teenagers from the neighborhood. The worst happened and even though I committed these so called crimes many, many times I got caught just once. Then I got a long sentence that was only because I am brown. This hurt my community because what do you think happened to my kids when I got sent to jail? This has decimated my family unit and caused my son to start shooting up the streets at night. His baby momma doesn’t want to turn him in because guess what, he’s taken care of business while I’m away and she is dependent on the income. Think of what all the money you spend on arresting people for selling drugs could do for us. But never mind, I’m out now and guess what? I have a job in marijuana delivery as a “Social Equity Applicant.” This is possible because I meet the number one qualification. I have shown what I am going to do with a law I don’t like. Marijuana has been so good for my neighborhood. No one is selling illegally now. There are lots of new mental health and addiction services. Justice is restored.

DANGEROUS DOWNTOWN PITTSFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS!!!!

Currently, the Pittsfield Police Department’s “Crime Statistics” page on its website at pittsfieldpd.org is blank, and its short-lived CityStat Report program hasn’t been updated since October 2015 [- which was when Dan Bianchi was the Mayor of Pittsfield, Massachusetts].

“Since May 9th, we’ve had 12 shooting incidents or shots fired incidents,” said said Pittsfield Police Department Captain Mark Trepani.

The Lovely Linda states, “I mean, it’s known to us that we are a destination city for gun trafficking.”

It’s drug and gang violence not gun violence.
I’d love to see the stats on how many of those arrested are lawful gun owners.
When the DA says they are going to stop prosecuting crimes, crimes go up, even if not reported.
Low level crimes like theft are done to fuel drug habits. More druggies with cash, more dealers on the streets, more dealers fighting over turf, more shootings. Not one of the recent shootings hasn’t been directly related drugs and gangs.

Why is it in all these Democrat run cities?

I know why: Tyer, Wrong Way, Hinds, Farley-Country-Buffet (D).

Instead of worrying about being inclusive Linda, how about cracking down on crime. You know, that thing that is truly plaguing Pittsfield.

Not worrying if Sweet Pete White is happy because a black, transsexual, man/he/it, gets the DEI job?

And think, Farley-Country-Buffet (D) wants to give illegals DL’s? Do an internet search and look at the southern border. It’s headed all our way. But it’s inclusive, right Linda?

As bad as Tyer is, we could end up with an even more far leftist mayor who wants to get rid of the police in Pittsfield and release all the prisoners from the jails while at the same time taking all weapons so we can’t defend ourselves. Tyer wants the police to stay. It could be because she has friends on the police force, but at this point I don’t care what the reason is as long as we keep our police force.

Mt. Greylock HS RACIST Zoom Attack Perpetrated by, SURPRISE! Students of Color!!

But before the revelation that this was a BLACK ON BLACK RACIST ATTACK, an unnamed school war criminal vowed that the perpetrators of this racist atrocity would be subjected to the fullest extent of the law equal to that of the wrath of Idi Amin crashing down on their youthful skulls. But that was when the perpetrators of this RACIST ATTACK were expected to be white n***** hating racists. As it stands now all high schools in these beautiful berserkshires will be celebrating Septemberteenth 30, in honor of African Warlord General Butt Naked Joshua Milton Blahyi. No doubt linda tyer and general butthead wynn are planning to invite General Butt Naked, the Repentant Warlord, to an all expenses taxpayer paid holiday to Pittsfield, Ma for the raising of the Warlords flag over city hall. And where better for this notorious Warlord to holiday than in Pittsfield, especially when one considers that he’s asking for money.

Here was the political game plan in the office today:
Andy is looking for people to submit letters to the editor he is writing.
They are reaching out to Rabbi Cain, Neal Pilson, she’s trying to get interviews on talk radio, and is hoping the Broken Eagle will run a puff piece about her anti-bullying and racism seminars run by con-artist Edgerton.
Expect picture of kids being told lies about critical race theory.

Hunter’s in Berkshire County, tend to be white men. In Wrong Way’s eyes, they are the devil. At least from her phony pulpit.

Lonnie Durfee is the example. He was held on no bail. Think about it, the highly trained state police detectives conducted a search warrant on Durfee’s house, computer, phone, and everything else the man owned. They found NOTHING. Again, he was held on no bail. Not a person or property was ever in jeopardy.

A black female filed a false police report which led to “panic” at Simon’s Rock College, because a couple of “white guys,” “kidnapped” and “drug her into the woods.” Again, the same highly trained state police detectives investigated this. Except, the problem, when the black female has no injuries, there are no drag marks in the leaves/dirt/debris, and surveillance cameras catch her writing the racist graffiti, no harm, no foul. Who cares about tax payer money in state police resources, right Andrea? You don’t pay your taxes, so it’s literally not your money. Just didn’t fit her agenda.

And you damn well know she had those state police detectives looking over the dust bunnies, dust bunnies, to find something on the evil white men. A photo-op and a press release awaited.

Well said and this is 100% accurate. However, it is important to note that the investigation was closed after the accused refused to cooperate. What kind of law enforcement gives up when the defendant refuses to cooperate? In fact, they have a constitutional right not to cooperate. Truly stunning.

Police halt investigation into alleged attack at Simon’s RockInvestigators conducted numerous interviews, reviewed medical records, searched the grounds, and searched electronics.
BY TERRY COWGILL
POSTED ON NOVEMBER 15, 2019

Great Barrington — Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington announced this afternoon that state police assigned to her office are no longer investigating an attack that allegedly occurred on the Simon’s Rock campus in September.
The student reporting the assault recently informed detectives that they would no longer cooperate with the investigation. The student similarly refused to cooperate with a private investigator hired by the college, Harrington said in a news release.
The Campus Safety department at Simon’s Rock received a call shortly before 2 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27, with a report that a student of color had been assaulted and dragged into a wooded area on campus. The student, whose name and age were never released, was transported by ambulance to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, treated for minor injuries and discharged.
The incident alarmed students, faculty and staff on the campus, in part because it was preceded by the appearance of anti-Semitic graffiti and racial slurs written on the walls of campus buildings.
An extensive investigation by Great Barrington Police and State Police Detectives assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office uncovered inconsistencies between the student’s allegations and the evidence collected during the course of the investigation.
Still, authorities said last month that the investigation into the “alleged incident” would remain open, “given the unease that the complaint has caused for the community, particularly for Simon’s Rock students and faculty.”
“While these inconsistencies call into doubt that an attack occurred as alleged, police and prosecutors have determined there is insufficient evidence to charge the student with making a false report to law enforcement,” the new release said.
Investigators conducted numerous interviews, reviewed medical records, searched the grounds, and searched electronics. There was no surveillance video of the area available.
Multiple law enforcement agencies including Simon’s Rock Campus Safety, Great Barrington Police Department, State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, State Police Crime Scene Services Section, and forensic scientists assigned to the State Police Crime Lab “devoted significant resources to investigating this matter given the disturbing nature of the report and the concerns over potential racial motivations for the attack,” Harrington said.
Among the details released by the DA’s office last month:

  • The student informed investigators that they were rendered unconscious and dragged approximately 75 yards into the woods. The student reported later waking with cuts through the student’s clothing, resulting in cuts to the student’s torso.
  • The ground in the area of which the student was reportedly dragged consisted of a wooden path, dirt and mud.
  • The student’s clothing, shoes, hair and body did not have any dirt or debris on them.
  • The superficial wounds on the student’s torso did not align with the cuts on the student’s clothing.
  • There were no defensive wounds on the complainant.
  • Records provided thus far do not provide a medical reason for unconsciousness.
  • Investigators conducted three interviews of the student.
  • No description of the alleged assailant was provided to investigators during any of the interviews.
  • No surveillance footage of the area is available.
  • None of the witnesses in the area at the time reported seeing any other potentially involved parties in the vicinity.

Tourism is welcomed for another lovely evening of gunfire and stabbings in Mayor Sneaky Linda’s Dynamic, Vibrant and Innovative City. Nightly entertainment for all to see and hear and hopefully not feel. Yet during the day Mayor Sneaky Linda and her boy toy Morales can’t figure out how to open the taxpayer paid for City park’s splash pads during a hot spell. Maybe residents can cool off if they fill some of the City street pot holes and splash around, just duck if you hear gunfire. The City Clownsil puppet show will vote through Mayor Sneaky Linda’s over inflated budget tonight, even though taxpayers are not even receiving general maintenance of the streets and parks.

May 27, 2021 Two juveniles, two fine 15 & 16 year old cannibals, in Pittsfield charged with possession of firearms/large capacity feeding device/ammunition, stolen property and illegal narcotics.

Tyer’s vibrant and dynamic month of June started off with a bang. Well, to be accurate, several bangs. A 27 year-old male was shot several times on First Street.
Shooting events in Pittsfield on June 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7th. But none of this stopped tyer and her booty bumping twerkers from the important taxpayer funded work of raising a faded lgbtq flag at city hall. But what I don’t understand is why this faded queer flag was raised on Allan Street instead from the rooftop of 100 North Street.

They don’t even take reports on mugging as in Pittsfield unless the include violence. Wrong Way will only go after “aggravated robbery” or “armed robbery”.
So simple strong arm muggings and aggressive panhandling isn’t a crime in Berkshire County.
If you are a black male under 25, if the gun was loaded with 6 or less rounds, you get three free passes a year.
