It’s happened again. It’s like watching the movie Groundhog Day. First, a criminal thug (this time it’s 23 year-old Syville K Smith in Milwaukee) who happens to be a person of color does something illegal. Secondly, the known felon defies police orders. Third, the non-compliant blight on society gets killed for his defiant stupidity. Fourth, the population in the local area burns down area businesses, using the incident as just another excuse to commit some more crimes (as if they needed an excuse to loot and steal, anyway as Twitter made us aware on Sunday,
Such repeated unrest is just another episode in an organized effort by the same old left wing players to create enough racial tension to make sure that Democrats have a better chance to continue doing what they do: Run organized crime from the inside of government.
Not very much about this rioting case will be broadcast on the news. It doesn’t fit the narrative of white cop shoots innocent black man that is sought by the political left. The policeman in this case who is believed to have shot Syville Smith happens to be a black man as well, according to The Daily Mail.
Shayn Roby’s Take: Any time that the subject of slavery is approached among the African American population, there is potential for misunderstanding, confusion, and anger. The whole point of the assignment was in order for each student to feel the magnitude of the hard life that was imposed upon those who were held in the bondage of slavery. The assignment was neither irrelevant nor inappropriate, but perhaps it would be wise to allow an alternative assignment to be substituted for those who feel offended..
Parents of some students in an eighth-grade English class at Hawthorne Middle School were outraged Thursday over a homework assignment requiring students to keep a first-hand diary of life as a slave for five days, describing the so-called slave journal “inappropriate and demeaning.”
Hawthorne School Superintendent Helen E. Morgan responded in a statement: “Asking students to write a journal as if they were experiencing a historical event is an appropriate teaching strategy. It requires the writer to think critically about the facts and emotions that may have impacted someone in that situation.”

Shayn Roby’s Take: Another government agency has been created by the state of Missouri in order to allow those who conduct themselves in unlawful and inappropriate ways to continue their bellyaching and complaining in the event that they somehow survive through their deserved violent encounter with police. Perhaps if individuals like Michael Brown were to focus on not robbing convenience stores, being gunned down by a police officer would not be deemed necessary, and neither would this most current needless and frivolous waste of taxpayer dollars.
JEFFERSON CITY, MO (AP) – Missouri will have a new government agency to help low-income and minority families after sometimes violent protests erupted earlier this year following a police shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old.
Gov. Jay Nixon on Thursday signed an executive order creating the Office of Community Engagement.
The order follows the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a white police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson and the sometimes violent protests that followed.
Former state Sen. Maida Coleman and former St. Louis City Municipal Judge Marvin Teer will lead the office in talks with the community about education, poverty and racial issues.
Nixon says the appointees will start work immediately to help develop policies to addressing racial issues.
Shayn Roby’s Take: Whether Bryon Smith could have done something differently or not, he has a right to defend his property. To convict him of pre-meditated murder, for shooting two invaders dead when they broke into his home is an outrageous miscarriage of justice.
Fox News — LITTLE FALLS, Minn. – A Minnesota homeowner who shot and killed two teenagers during a break-in was convicted Tuesday of premeditated murder.
Bryon Smith had claimed he was simply defending himself during the break-in at his home in the small city of Little Falls on Thanksgiving Day 2012. Smith’s attorney said the 65-year-old was fearful after previous burglaries.
But prosecutors argued that Smith waited in his basement and intended to kill the teens. A total of nine shots were fired at 17-year-old Nick Brady and 18-year-old Haile Kifer.
Jurors began deliberating Tuesday morning and within three hours had a verdict: Guilty on two counts each of first-degree and second-degree murder. Mothers of the teens cried as the verdicts were read, while Smith showed no emotion. Defense attorney Steve Meshbesher said he would appeal.
The teens’ killings stirred debate around the state and in Little Falls — a…
Three men are being tried for the horrible crime of sharing the love of Jesus. According to Vine of Life News, the criminal trial for three men who were arrested for reading the Bible aloud outside of a California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office in Hemet, California began on Monday. The incident occurred in February 2011 when Pastor Brett Coronado, Mark Mackey and Edward Florez, Jr. went to the DMV to evangelize those who were waiting for the facility to open. As they stood on the public sidewalk, Mackey began to read out loud from the Bible.
However, soon after, he was approached by a security officer at the DMV, who asked him to move elsewhere. The men then asserted that they had a First Amendment right to stand on the sidewalk, and Mackey continued to read from the Scriptures.
Approximately 10 minutes later, a California patrol officer arrived on the scene, grabbed Mackey’s Bible, and put him in handcuffs. He informed the men that they could not “preach to a captive audience.”
Shayn Roby’s Take: Sarah makes the point that neither she as a rape victim, nor a black male in America feel safe. The point is well taken in her case, and perhaps black males feel alienated from society. As a white male, the editor of ShaynRoby.com is not going to pretend to know how a black male feels, nor how it feels to be a woman who has been brutalized by a subhuman coward. However, it is apparent from the facts of the Trayvon Martin shooting that the incident had nothing to do with how a safe a black male is. It has more to do with the safety of someone under the influence of illicit substances being stupid enough to stalk and tackle someone who they perceive to be a ‘gay rapist’. This was revealed by Rachel Jeantel on the Piers Morgan show a couple of days after the trial. She unwittingly made it crystal clear that not only did the jury get it right about self defense, but that Trayvon should have been charged with stalking, assault and battery, and more than likely, impairment in public from marijuana use. Robitussin would have been mentioned, but it’s apparent that Trayvon hadn’t made it home yet, so that he could mix his watermelon Arizona and his Skittles with Robitussin to make a concoction of ‘Lean’. The autopsy report revealed that Martin had significant liver damage that is consistent with someone who has been abusing Robitussin. Generally, someone under the influence of this concoction tends to be violent and incoherent. The editor of ShaynRoby.com will not specualte as to whether Martin was under the influence of ‘Lean’ the night he was killed, but can reasonably assume that he used marijuana regularly. Ms. Jeantel said he smoke a ‘couple of times a week’, Trayvon was found with a baggie with residue in it by Miami Dade Public School Police, and the autopsy revealed the presence of THC in his system. Trayvon was unsafe because he participated in activities and behaviors that put him at risk, NOT because he was black.
