Tawana Brawley Finally Made to Pay and Other News

January 31, 2013 at 8:07 PM

It looks like time has run out for Tawana Brawley.  I recall living in New York state at the time of this huge hoax and it never set well with most of us at the time.  Initially, it appeared as though Tawana had been kidnapped, raped, and generally treated horribly by New York police officers who – it was alleged – were white.  Passions were inflamed and it was not long before a much larger-than-life “Rev.” Al Sharpton rolled onto the scene to side with the alleged victim.  His accusations are noteworthy, which became the subject of a number of defamation of character lawsuits later on.  The fines levied against him totaled $66,000, which was ultimately paid “by O.J. Simpson lawyer Johnnie Cochran and others.” [1]

Eventually, the entire thing began to fall apart and it began to appear as though Tawana had lied; falsely accusing police and Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones of raping her.  The entire fiasco occurred 25 years ago, but it is still fresh in the minds of people who were falsely accused and had to live through the proceedings.

After a year of hell, a grand jury found Brawley’s accusations without any merit. She likely fabricated the story because she feared her stepfather’s wrath for staying out late, according to the grand-jury evidence.” [2]  To this day, Tawana has never admitted she lied and has certainly never apologized for anything.

The trouble of course, is what all of this did to the lives of innocent men.  There was a defamation lawsuit in which Brawley was found guilty and ordered to pay just under $200,000, something she has never even attempted to do.  Instead, she fled and landed in Virginia with a brand new alias – Tawana Vacenia Thompson Gutierrez.  She also worked as a licensed nurse.

Pagones has continued to search for Brawley for years and after the Post was finally able to track her down, went there with his lawyer in tow and it appears that her wages will be garnished by as much as 10 to 25%.  Unbelievably, some people are arguing that Pagones should have left her alone and let bygones be bygones.  Apparently, these people have never had their names dragged through the mud.  Even so, Pagones says he may be willing to let it go if Brawley admits to what she has done.  So in essence, the oneness rests of her, not Pagones.

Just think, if Brawley had never gotten into the news with her fabricated story, we might not ever had heard of Al Sharpton.  That’s a big IF of course, because it is just as likely that he would have found another situation he could have used to his own advantage.

For Brawley, it looks like it’s finally time to actually pay the piper.  Imagine what she’ll be telling her kids.  First, she’ll tell them that she was raped by white men 25 years ago, but they were “let off,” then she’ll tell them justice took a swat at her again by making her pay fines that she does not deserve to pay.  It’ll be another rung on the ladder of racial injustice…

And onto other news, let’s talk about guns, shall we?  We know that Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords spoke before a group during a Capitol Hill hearing on gun control.  We also know that her therapist apparently wrote the notes that Giffords spoke.  She was insistent that Congress “do something” about gun violence, as if government has the answers and is capable of dealing with an issue like this.  It always goes about dealing with something like this the wrong way.  Further, we learned that both Giffords – husband and wife – own handguns.  This seems odd, but maybe it’s just me.

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre also spoke and basically stated that there are millions of Americans who “take responsibility for our own safety and protection as a God-given, fundamental right.” [3]  He went onto point out that universal background checks only serve to burden the law-abiding.

It seems the only ones who are not aware of this (or care about it) are the Liberals.  Logic alone tells a person that criminals won’t be hampered one bit by any new legislation.  The Left dutifully ignores this truth, preferring to roll along right over law-abiding citizens’ rights.

Sheriff David Clarke – of Milwaukee County – has stated “I’m Sheriff David Clarke, and I want to talk to you about something personal…your safety. It’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game, but are you ready? With officers laid-off and furloughed, simply calling 9-1-1 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back; but are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?” [4]  Clarke has produced a public service announcement to that effect as well.

Nearly 70% of those polled agree with Sheriff Clarke, yet the Left attacks and maligns him over his stance.  The only thing they really can’t do is call him a racist because Clarke is African-American.  Still, the word “vigilante” is being bandied about because he is actually encouraging people to defend themselves with a gun.  Matt Lauer and company certainly don’t approve and have stated as much.  No doubt they go nowhere without personal armed security, but that type of hypocrisy goes unnoticed by the Left because their talking points serve the agenda.

Moving right along, let’s talk about…guns some more!  I read this evening that California is not about to let a good gun massacre go to waste.  The Democrats are on it!  There are a number of bills that are being introduced that will make it more ridiculous for law-abiding citizens in what used to be the Golden State.  Let’s take a quick look, shall we?

– AB 48 is the Firearms Ammunition Sales legislation.  Introduced by Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner (D), the bill “makes it illegal to have parts to repair a legally possessed magazine that is capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

“She is also banning magazines that look like they can hold more than 10 rounds even if they cannot.

“The bill would also require anybody who sells ammunition to an individual or business entity in or out of the state without gaining proper identification and reporting the sale to the Department of Justice, will be committing a crime.

“The final provision of this bill would require the DOJ to report to local law enforcement officials any time an individual purchases a yet-to-be-determined number of rounds of ammo within a 5-day period. Will the number be 500 rounds, one brick of .22 LR ammo? 1,000 rounds of handgun ammo, the average number of rounds fired by competitive handgun shooters in an average weekend of training and practice? Will it be 100 rounds of shotgun shells, one single round of sporting clays? Will it be 250 rounds of rifle ammo, an amount that can be consumed in less than a few hours of recreational shooting on a family trip to the desert?” [5]  Democrats and liberals don’t care at all.  It does not matter to them.  They will come up with an arbitrary quantity of ammo that they believe it would be permissible for law-abiding citizens to have and that will be that.  Criminals?  No worries there, since they will continue to obtain what they want in whatever quantity they can afford.

Sen. Leland Yee – another Democrat – has introduced a bill that would “require all guns to be ‘properly’ stored when not in the possession of their owner.

“Current law only requires that gun owners own a trigger lock or safety lock box for their weapon, but doesn’t require the safety device to be used on an idle firearm.

“Yee’s bill will specifically require that all guns be “properly” stored with a trigger lock or in a lock box at a residence when the owner is not present.

“This bill is in direct conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in District of Columbia but that doesn’t seem to bother Senator Yee.” [6]  This is all built into SB 108.

Yet another Democrat – Sen. Kevin de Leon – wants to make it mandatory for anyone who wants to purchase ammunition to have a permit to do so.  This is SB 53.  We’ve discussed this bill previously.

Finally (for now at least, since the Left never really stops attacking individual rights), Sen. Leland Yee has another bill that he has introduced that deals with the “assault” weapon – the very same one that was not used in the Sandy Hook massacre, but was initially reported as being used.  SB 47 states that “a semi-automatic rifle, semi-automatic pistol or semi-automatic shotgun that does not have a fixed magazine but has any one of the listed features, it is an illegal assault weapon. Fixed magazine means an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action. This will effectively make all bullet button configured guns, illegal. That is unless you take advantage of the second provision of the bill that opens up the assault weapons registration section of the statutes allowing any person who between January 1, 2001 and January 1, 2014, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, as defined…and including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with the use of a tool (bullet button), shall register the firearm by July 1, 2014, with the department (of Justice) pursuant to those procedures that the department may establish.

“And of course there is a fee of $20 to register.” [7]  There’s a lot of “blah, blah, blah” there but in the end, they want to ban so-called assault rifles because they look very military-like.  I’m very thankful that our military personnel actually use true assault rifles, not so-called ones.

So you folks in California better take note and contact your representatives, though you already know that the legislature in California is Democratic-controlled.  Even though none of these bills would create a problem for criminals, the dimwitted Democrats of California will do their best to push them through anyway.  The Left simply does not know what to do with logic.

I have to admit though that it was nice to see that when I still lived in California, the Dems didn’t have a blank check.  A number of their bills routinely went down to defeat that were related to guns.  Either a good many Dems actually understand the 2nd Amendment or they are hunters.

Before I sign off, I’d like to call your attention to one more subject out there that’s…well, extremely important.  Most who are aware of the gun-control debate, realize that numerous sheriffs across the U.S. have taken the position against the Federal gov’t.  Some have even written to the Obama administration noting that they will not obey any new legislation they believe is unconstitutional.

Of course, the Left is not taking this lying down and they are, in fact, pushing back.  Some areas of the country want to remove the power of arrest from the office of sheriff.  This is occurring right now in the state of Delaware.

Of course, what’s really interesting is that the Delaware Attorney General is Joe Biden’s son, Beau.  Yep, there’s a connection between the state of Delaware and the Oval Office; nearly a direct connect.  In all fairness, the process of reducing or removing the arrest powers of the sheriffs in Delaware began before Beau Biden came on board, but he has certainly continued the process.

The Left does not like to lose and right now, they are on a tear to the finish line.  Amazing, isn’t it?  What this country has become is much more than tragic.

Well, that’s it for now, folks.  Since the mainstream media is firmly in the Left’s corner, it’s up to us – the little people – to get the real news out there.  Hopefully, you’re part of that process; the solution.
