Three black soldiers arrested for stabbing white comrade to death 'called him a cracker'
Daily Mail ^ | October 7, 2013 | Daniel Bates

Posted on 10/07/2013 2:26:42 PM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi

Three soldiers have been arrested over the fatal stabbing of one of their comrades in what was originally described by officers as a 'hate crime', it emerged today.

The trio were held at the weekend when one of them allegedly bragged to a friend that he had murdered somebody and cut his hand on a knife.

Tevin Geike, 20, was left for dead in a parking lot near his base in Lakewood, Washington in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Previously police said they believed the attack was racially motivated because the attackers - a group of five African American men - called Tevin a ‘cracker’, a racist term for a white person.

However, after interviews with those involved in the confrontation officers today said they no longer believed the killing to be a hate crime after speaking to everyone they believe was involved.

All the suspects are from Joint Base Lewis-McChord and served in the same combat infantry unit as Tevin.

The accused are Jeremiah Hill, 23 - the alleged murderer - Cedarium Johnson, 21; and Ajoni Runnion-Bareford, 21. Two others are still being sought.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Tevin’s mother Jennifer Rose fought back the tears as she said that she had got a text from her son just hours before his death saying he was going to get a tattoo to celebrate his military graduation.

She said: ‘Tevin trusted everybody until they gave him a reason not to trust them. He was really kind-hearted and he would give you the shirt off your back.

Black-on-white, so doesn’t meet the legal requirement for hate crime. I personally detest the entire idea of a so-called “hate crime” but as long as we have it, it should be used evenhandedly.

Why are we reading about this on a UK website?

I did a search on the victim's name, and I only see reports in US blogs, and local news sites.

I didn't see it reported in any of the kneepad media sites. I wonder why?

The hate crime double standard is repulsive. I’m not sure why white people continue to bite their tongue regarding black racism, black murder rates, the media double standard on race, affirmative action, and on, and one regarding race matters and how white people always get the short end of the stick while being demonized as the racists. Their needs to be a collective stand taken
on these matters.

Suspect- “Nope”

Police- “OK then”

“I did a search on the victim’s name, and I only see reports in US blogs, and local news sites.”

Because the US media could not publicize the incident until it had been officially ruled “not a hate crime”.

Calling a white person a cracker is not racist. Why? Because it means a federal hate crime has been committed and ONLY whites can commit those. Why? Police Chief conference says blacks would evoke tribalism customs and riot. This would bring national attention and would cause millions in damages.

It’s been suggested that blacks be prosecuted for hate crimes only in the winter when it’s snowing.

"However, after interviews with those involved in the confrontation officers today said they no longer believed the killing to be a hate crime after speaking to everyone they believe was involved."

Such is the abyss of reporting today....

"Those involved" would, of course, be the murderers themselves, since by definition the involved murderee can't be interviewed.

Why were Holder’s people even arrested?
They were just celebrating their ethnic heritage?
Surely hundreds of years of racism and white oppression justifies killing a few crackers?

No hate involved. Just an understanding that the white oppressor must needs be extirpated, right?

Welcome to the fundamentally transformed Amerika, comrades.

In the local Tacoma paper, they say:

The crime does not appear to be racially motivated, although police initially believed it may have been because of the comment yelled about the soldiers being “white boys.”

I'm not sure why white people...

If they're anything like some of my old officemates -- and I suspect many are -- they think they have to stick it to the religious right. They just go along with the rest of the leftist agenda because they are allies in the war on Jerry Falwell and the Pope.

I think the original ‘story’ was close to correct. (For a change)
The white guys were walking down the street, the Black guys drove by and ‘yelled’ at them. The White guys yelled back, the Blacks came back...one of the Blacks supposedly said ‘they are Combat Vets too’, lets get out of here’, and the one of the White guys got stabbed.

Thought the ‘original’ story said it was about 130AM so would imagine alcohol involved and would almost be willing to wager that if any or all in uniform, this may not have happened?

Captain puts down phone, visibly distressed.

“Officer get over here!”

“Yes, Sir.”

“You go back out there and withdraw that ‘hate crime’ comment right now!”

“But Sir ...”

“NO BUTS! Go take it back now or you're writing parking tickets on MLK Boulevard until retirement!”

There may be more to this than meets the eye. That is, what if it *wasn’t* about race? What if the black soldiers knew him for some other reason? The two that come to mind are drugs, or if he was a homosexual.

Right now, I doubt there is any command in the Army that will say a homosexual soldier was murdered because he was a homosexual. For a command to assert this would be to invite tremendous mass punishment on everyone in that command.

So everyone involved, even the murderer, will be inclined to say it is for *any* other reason than homosexuality. For example, offer the murderer a deal: if he insists that it was because the victim was a homosexual, he will get life; but if he says it was because he was stealing his wallet, he will get three years.

In this case, it gets even thicker, because they don’t want to call it a hate crime either. Granted, a hate crime is actually better than killing him because he was a homosexual, but it is still embarrassing to the command; so I think they will find yet another reason.

Drugs is convenient, because even if they don’t find any drugs at autopsy, they can say that he was skipping out on a drug debt. If even that is too raw, they can get the murderer to say that it was mistaken identity, that he looked like somebody who had skipped out on a drug debt.

Water finds its own level. The purpose of the military justice system is not justice, but to maintain good order and discipline in the military.

Here is the way it used to be when I was in the Army, I guess eventually most of the worst died out, but evidently not totally.

“””During the late evening of July 20, 1969, a series of racially motivated assaults took place at Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, N.C., in which 15 Caucasian marines were injured at the hands of a group variously estimated to be 30 to 50 black members of the 2d Marine Division. One victim, Cpl. Edward E. Bankston, a thrice-wounded veteran of Vietnam, died 7 days later of massive head injuries sustained in an unprovoked assault as he and a marine companion, also injured, were returning to barracks from the area movie.

This event, coming on the heels of some reports of other disturbances on military bases, prompted Hon. L. Mendel Rivers, chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services, to appoint this Special Subcommittee To Probe Disturbance on Military Bases.”””

Look at number 2 in the findings, that looks like pure old racism/racial pride/racial militancy to me.

“””Findings

1. The racial problem existing at Camp Lejeune is a reflection of the Nation’s racial problem.

2. The average young black marine has racial pride, drive for identity, and sensitivity to discrimination that is characteristic of the young black in the United States.”””

Because the United States Press is our most dangerous enemy. Much more so than Al Qaeda ever hoped to be.

In any serious emergency national situation, it is this organization that must be dealt with, first.

Why are we reading about this on a UK website?

Because there are a lot of stories US papers will not cover at all, and most of the rest they cover badly. I believe the Daily Mail has been in the top five in US newspaper website traffic for sometime, and has been # 1 in some time periods.
