Tricksters and Confidence Men

I despise con men. At least your armed robber has the honesty to demand your money without trying to trick you out of it.

A Charlotte man was given 64 months in prison Monday for his part in a Ponzi scheme. The man was also ordered to pay $805,150 for restitution.

They should be punished by letting their victim’s relatives beat them with baseball bats.


Yet some idiot out there is probably saying that since it wasn’t a “violent” crime he shouldn’t have to go to prison.

The Iron Pipeline

The State of New York is always complaining that we here in NC are feeding the “Iron Pipeline.” Is this what they’re talking about?

A 32-year-old Raleigh man was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in federal prison Monday for his role in a scheme to use stolen credit card numbers to buy large amounts of relatively cheap North Carolina cigarettes and resell them in New York.

Naturally the criminal has a previous record.


Don’t you think that $5.85 a pack in taxes is a bit excessive?

At what point do we give up on someone?

We hear a lot about prison overcrowding and how we need to reduce our prison population.

Police found a man stabbed to death early Monday in the 1000 block of North Miami Boulevard and were looking for suspects in the homicide, they said.

But we never hear about all the terrible people who are free to roam the streets.


Have you noticed that very frequently the victims are criminals too?

Getting an early start in crime

He stole it, ran from the cops, and ended up crashing.

A robbery suspect was arrested Tuesday after wrecking the stolen vehicle while attempting to exit to South Tryon Street from I-77.

No one ever cares about the victims.


But I can guarantee you that someone is complaining that this poor misunderstood youth shouldn’t be thrown in jail for his crimes.

Robbers got to rob

It’s not so much random crime as it is a lifestyle choice.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested and charged a man and a woman in a several University City area robberies that happened on Jan. 7, Jan. 17, and Jan. 20. A tip to Crime Stoppers about the vehicle driven by the suspects lead to the arrests.

It seems they made their living this way.

Suspect 1

It’s the job he knows how to do.

Gun Grabbers @NCGV plan ‘vigil’ for murdered felons

They say, “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade,” which sounds like a good idea. But what do you do when life hands you 25 dead bodies? How much sugar do you have to sprinkle on that to make it sweet?

Apparently North Carolinians Against Gun Violence (now another subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc) has decided to find out how much you are willing to swallow. Take a 25 dead bodies, hide the histories of half of them, stack the innocent children on top and maybe they’ve got themselves a winning argument for gun control.

NCGV is “partnering” with the Religious Coalition for a Nonviolent Durham, another shadow gun grabber group to “honor” these Durham victims of violence.

NCGV Vigil names

I thought it might be a good idea to see who it was they were “honoring.”

  1. Antonio Dixon
  2. Alfredo Jobel
  3. Carolyn Robinson Hemingway
  4. Jeffery Lamar Dawes
  5. Shontina Nakeisha Williams
  6. Juan Carlos Ruiz
  7. Marquise Keshawn Mangum
  8. Derek Huggins Jr
  9. Rakwon Smith
  10. Breon McCallum
  11. Haywood Jabbar Downey
  12. Marcus Anthony Keith
  13. Holly Martez Lyons

Thirteen of the 25 names used by NCGV to attack your civil rights were people with adult criminal records, 9 of them Felons.

They hoped you would never notice.

I made sure to point these names out to Grass Roots North Carolina. They’ve turned it into an Alert. It looks like weather will cancel the vigil which was rescheduled for Thursday the 26th of February. Perhaps a little outrage on by the citizens for “honoring” a bunch of criminals in among the real victims will cause them to reconsider this whole sordid thing.

You can let NCGV know what you think on their Facebook page. Make sure to give them the link to this blog post.
