Racist, Homophobic, and Anti-Semitic Graffiti in Well-Publicized Buffalo, NY "Hate" Crime Turns Out to Be (Steel Yourself for a Shock) a Hoax

You don't say.

It's as if the Ruling Class has taught millions and millions of people that the world can be your oyster if you just make the right sort of false claim, and that you won't face any consequences for your lies even if they are discovered.

The owner of a BMW that was spray-painted with racist and homophobic graffiti in October is now facing insurance fraud charges.

Erie County District Attorney John Flynn announced Tuesday that, Clifton Eutsey, 18, allegedly spray-painted messages of hate on his own car in North Buffalo.

Swastikas, the N-word, KKK and profanity against Black Lives Matter were spray-painted all over the car, a BMW X5. The police report also stated that sugar was poured into the gas tank.

...

There was also a message of support for President Donald Trump that was also spray-painted on the car, 2 On Your Side reached out to the Erie County GOP for a response when the incident occurred.

Of course they did. Will they be issuing an apology?

No, of course not.

Supposedly he might face up to 7 years for his crimes but we all known a Soros prosecutor will let him off with probation.

15 Avoiding getting willowed last thread:

The reason I supported DJT for POTUS from day 1 is that he was a
sincere and serious advocate of stopping illegal immigration and was the
only one with both the balls and desire to do the right thing. Not
that he would always be successful, and we might disagree with specific
policies of his during normal peacetime, but as I stated in a long
exposition some months ago, he wants the grand prize that no one else is
able to attain if they even want to -- he truly wants to be known, in
history, as the guy who saved the Republic. You *cannot* buy or cheat
your way to that distinction.

Lincoln
could easily have taken a bribe from the south and let it go -- the New
York draft riots were epic. But he didn't. He proclaimed that the
United States of America was not going to be dissolved on his watch. He
delivered when no one else could and was assassinated for it. For that
alone, I'd rank Lincoln second after George Washington, who truly
established the precedent for the President of this republic. However,
neither one faced an opposition like Trump has.

It wouldn't shock me if he got a bit over his head on his car payments and thought "maybe if I throw bricks at the car and spray paint graffiti on it, it'll get totaled out, and I can get the insurance pay out."

Or it could be what it looks like -- a race hoax.

I'm sure he'll plea out and we'll never really know the truth.

Hahahaha. Jail time? For a nonviolent crime? Here in California, we now let MURDERERS out of prison. The excuse is "Covid-19!", but the real reason is "End the prison-industrial complex!".

Serious ina ddtion to emptying out nearly every county jail in the state earlier this year, they also just released 1,700 prisoners from SAN FREAKIN' QUENTIN, which houses the worst of the worst, holds the state's Death Row, and is populated mostly by murderers, rapists and psychopaths.

1,700 violent maniacs were just released onto the streets because it was just not fair that they might catch Covid-19 in jail. How sad!

True, but none of these hate crime reports get erased even after they get found to be fraudulent. SPLC and ADL (spit) don't separate them out in their reportage.

And so these stats end up being used by LEOs and Feds without being vetted for accuracy. Its how DHS puts out reports about how the right wing/white supremacists are the greatest threat to the US. Its all BS, but its convincing BS to those who don't know the media has been lying to us since its inception. IOW, when Martin Van Buren was running for President.

then it stopped responding to it.

When I was right out of college, I had a coworker who bought a pretty nice 4 year old Infiniti. He had shit credit (told me how he had to have his mom turn on the cable in her name) and made the same money as me, despite being 10+ years my senior, and I was confused.

Long story short, it eventually came out from another coworker that the idiot was paying like $300 a week for the car, at 20% interest. Apparently there is a whole industry of "used car lots" that sell cars to people with shit / no credit at usurious rates, and their business model basically assumes they will be repo'ing pretty much every car they sell.

I believe it.

In fact, a used car dealer would rather sell you a car on credit than have you come in and make an offer with cash.

Cash is no longer "king." It's a fuckedup world.

Yeah, my parents made the mistake of buying a used Mercedes. Only 3-4 years old. Was surprisingly cheap (which should have been a red flag) from the dealership.

Anyways, they quickly discovered why used German cars depreciate so much.

It's not that they're not reliable cars, it's just that every fucking minor routine maintenance costs so much more then it would on a Japanese or American car. It adds up quickly.

I was 5'8/140 back then and it fit great. Drove it x-country a few times. The first time I took I-15 from L.A. to I-70 into Colorado where it overheated and I pulled off the side of the interstate (I was hauling all my stuff from college). Basically, I needed to let the engine cool and then add coolant - IOW, just chill for a bit. No one else could know the situation was under control and the only one who stopped to ask if I needed help was a trucker. Truckers is good peeps.

162 I dunno. $15K for a car in 2020 isn't exactly extravagant. My first used car in HS cost $6,500. Adjusted for inflation it's not far from $15K in today's money. I split the cost with my parents, saved up from part time jobs leading up to when I turned 16.

Anyhoo some clown claimed his mercedes benz was graffittied with swastikas and the nagger and I don't remember what all.

He'd been shopping around for a paint job a week or so prior, and under questioning recanted his story.

Naturally, this was after the obligatory hand wringing, candle light vigils and passive aggressive nonsense. "It could have happened, which is just as bad you guys!"

Good enough for expert (marksman, sharpshooter, expert) and I'd proudly wear that badge on my dress uniform (though if I screwed up and hit sharpshooter, I'd downgrade). This was during my time as a forward signal platoon leader. It "signaled" to my platoon that I was a competent officer in this regard.

Cash for Clunkers was the single worst policy I had ever seen put into effect. It fills me with rage bile to this day.

Let's take hard physical assets that are almost always owned outright and then subsidize the owners with borrowed tax money to exchange it for a new asset that is encumbered by a car loan and then, in the crown of stupidity, *destroy* the unencumbered asset so it loses all value. Add in to it that the new, encumbered asset is probably of foreign manufacture it the lunacy is compounded.

In addition to the utter madness of incentivizing people to destroy unencumbered assets in favor of encumbered assets and using tax dollars to do it while enriching foreigners, it also ruined the low-end car market for a decade - which in turn seriously hampers poor people who need or want a car but suddenly can't get one because the government literally destroyed the entire low-end used car inventory in an act of appalling recklessness.

238 Picture I saw looked like an E53 X5- can't be newer than 2006. I know, I have a 2004 with 150k miles on it. Been paid off for 13 years and still gets 20 mpg at 80 on the interstate. Everything on the car still works! It has not been a maintenance nightmare although every gasket and seal has been replaced but so will any other 16 year old car driven every day. Also the story said the car belonged to Emma Mills, not this kid.

Although I know Land Rovers and Jaguars are up there, too.

279 The reason I supported DJT for POTUS from day 1 is that he was a
sincere and serious advocate of stopping illegal immigration and was the
only one with both the balls and desire to do the right thing. Not
that he would always be successful, and we might disagree with specific
policies of his during normal peacetime, but as I stated in a long
exposition some months ago, he wants the grand prize that no one else is
able to attain if they even want to -- he truly wants to be known, in
history, as the guy who saved the Republic. You *cannot* buy or cheat
your way to that distinction.

Lincoln
could easily have taken a bribe from the south and let it go -- the New
York draft riots were epic. But he didn't. He proclaimed that the
United States of America was not going to be dissolved on his watch. He
delivered when no one else could and was assassinated for it. For that
alone, I'd rank Lincoln second after George Washington, who truly
established the precedent for the President of this republic. However,
neither one faced an opposition like Trump has.

Depends on the Porsche. Any one of the 911 or variants have held their value, and are well screwed together. Ancient tech helps.

Bimmers even when they were good, weren't. I drove a 1977 530i, and I loved that thing. Maybe the most fun car I ever drove. 4 wheel drifts were easy and controlled.

But BMW's use lots of plastic where it shouldn't be used. Mercedes has terrible near comic electronics. Then, when it was decreed that "X" amount of the car had to be recyclable, what does Mercedes do? They decide that a good place to do that would be the insulation on the fucking wiring! So, the wiring harnesses of 90's mercs literally dissolves.

Pass everything on the road but a gas station.

383 If you watch the presser, it's clear why the left is screaming bloody murder-- they know they lose under the law.

The Supreme Court has a very clear question before it:
If it's a violation of the Equal Protection Clause to deny someone their vote, is it also a violation to count a vote that was not legal--cancelling the vote of a legal voter?

Bush v. Gore said--7 to 2-- that counting which votes are legal differently from county to county was an EP violation.*

They HAVE to keep this in the court of public opinion, where they can count on the media and tech to censor in their favor.

Near 250k watched on RSBN; their Liz Willis got the 1st question.

*the remedy was that Gore could continue his recount but it had to be statewide and the same standard. In PA, that means Trump will be allowed to count every county under the Philly and Pitt standard, that those who had their ballots rejected can be called in to cure-- even if that takes past 12/8/2020 .... hehe he.

Posted by: Asshoes at November 19, 2020 04:04 PM (22mNy)


When I was looking for a new used car just before the lock-down, and even at the beginning, BMW's were saturated. In NorCal, there was 300+ of any given 3 series or 4 series BMW, with pretty low mileage, 2017-2018. Cheap.

Lexus GS/ES/IS? Between 5-12, higher mileage, 2014-2016 and about $5k-7k more. While it was slightly compelling for the cost savings and a faster car, I knew that $5k would only last so many trips to the shop. Been there, done that.

I work with realtors, and they all feel like they need to drive Audis, Mercs or Bimmers (lease, of course). The guy with Audis went through 3 in one year. Engine actually blew up in one. I don't even think he had it a month. The gal that always drives Mercedes has to trade in within 2 years. At 70k, they're in the shop too often. The one I know with a 6 series coupe, well almost every time I see him he's driving his 90's beater F150. Because it runs.

Great for a second or third car if you keep the mileage low and can afford the upkeep. Me? I hate having to take the fucking things in. I don't have the patience. After driving German cars for 20+ years, I bailed. Never again.

401 Corvair suffered from the same handling quirks as the early 911. If you took your foot off the gas in a fast turn, the back end loses traction and swings around on you. And it's really hard to convince someone to keep on the gas when they get scared.

But they fixed it in the Corvair and 911 eventually and Nader was full of shit.

402 Only worse car was a GMC Pacer. Friend of mine had one in High school. It was like driving a fish bowl.

AMC. The Pacer was supposed to be zippy, but at the last minute GM I think pulled the 6-cylinder engine they were going to let AMC buy and gave them a four-banger that was gutless.

So it was ugly, weird looking, and couldn't drive up a hill. Big sales the first couple of months, then it died. Killed the company.

Other than tires, fluids, and batteries, I've put less than $1000 in it so far.

AC compressor needed to be replaced 2 summers ago.

I've done little things (like replacing the blower fan for the heat / AC. The part was $50.)

436 383 If you watch the presser, it's clear why the left is screaming bloody murder-- they know they lose under the law.

The Supreme Court has a very clear question before it:
If it's a violation of the Equal Protection Clause to deny someone their vote, is it also a violation to count a vote that was not legal--cancelling the vote of a legal voter?

Bush v. Gore said--7 to 2-- that counting which votes are legal differently from county to county was an EP violation.*

They HAVE to keep this in the court of public opinion, where they can count on the media and tech to censor in their favor.

Near 250k watched on RSBN; their Liz Willis got the 1st question.

*the remedy was that Gore could continue his recount but it had to be statewide and the same standard. In PA, that means Trump will be allowed to count every county under the Philly and Pitt standard, that those who had their ballots rejected can be called in to cure-- even if that takes past 12/8/2020 .... hehe he.

If you just need the radio fixed and the car is otherwise fine, some other moron mentioned Car Toys for a new radio. That can be relatively inexpensive.

Rated at 390 HP (Horse power ratings in the 50s and 60s were wildly optimistic). He decided not to buy it, because he said I would probably kill myself in that car. He was probably right.

Several years ago I looked up the price of one of those on the Internet. If you had a junker, which was good only for parts, it was worth $250,000, if you had a running restored model in show condition half a million. They haven't gotten more affordable since then.
