Push To Decriminalize Fare Evasion on Los Angeles Metro Because Too Many Blacks are Arrested

Fare evasion decriminalized in Washington D.C. to protect black criminals

Fare evasion decriminalized in New York City to protect black (and brown) criminals

How about Los Angles? Yep. It appears public transportation is a right for black people in the City of Angels. [Civil rights complaint alleges LA Metro, police target black riders: Black riders are disproportionately cited for fare evasions, complaint says. LA Curbed, 1-18-17]:

The U.S. Department of Transportation confirmed Wednesday that it is investigating a civil rights complaint alleging Los Angeles Metro and the sheriff’s department have discriminated against black riders by disproportionately citing them for fare evasions.
Western civilization can't survive an elite constantly demanding standards lowered to accommodate Africans in America

The Department of Transportation chose to investigate the complaint and alerted Metro late last week. 
The complaint was filed in November by the Labor/Community Strategy Center, the parent organization of the Bus Riders Union, and it alleges that in each year from 2012 to 2015, black riders—who make up about 19 percent of bus and rail riders—were handed more than 50 percent of all fare evasion citations. 
“This is beyond a level of racial profiling,” said Eric Mann, co-founder of the Bus Riders Union. “This is a level of egregious discrimination against black people.” 
In a statement, the strategy center accused Metro of employing “broken windows” and “stop and frisk” tactics, two dehumanizing strategies that involve the aggressive policing of minor violations in an effort to prevent serious crimes. 
(Studies have shown they are ineffective at reducing crime, and in 2013, when a federal judge ruled that the stop and frisk tactics of New York police officers violated the constitutional rights of minorities, she said, “blacks are likely targeted for stops based on a lesser degree of objectively founded suspicion than whites.”) 
Metro spokeswoman Joni Goheen refuted that Metro uses stop and frisk—but she said the local transit agency plans to pursue a “voluntary resolution with the Labor/Community Strategy Center and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.” 
“We’re in the process of trying to schedule initial meetings. We are reaching out through our civil rights office this week and will begin the process of addressing all concerns,” she said. 
The strategy center has demanded that Metro grant amnesty to all black riders for outstanding citations and that it stop using law enforcement officers to check fares.The starting fine for fare evasion is $75, a price that can soar to $250 with late fees, according to KPCC. 
“We have people paying $75 to $100 fines who make $8 an hour,” Mann said. “We have people getting arrested.” 
“If you aggressively enforce fare collection and you have law enforcement involved with it and they have the power to carry out arrests, that in and of itself is what ‘stop and frisk’ means,” he said. 
The strategy center also alleges that: 
  • Black riders accounted for 53 percent of all arrests in 2015, 58 percent of all arrests in 2014, and 60 percent of all arrests in 2013.
  • Each year from 2012 to 2015, nine to 10 percent of all fare evasion citations went to white riders, who comprise 13 percent of all riders.
  • From 2012 through May of 2016, Metro and the sheriff’s department combined have issued 455,388 citations. Of those, at least 48 percent went to black riders.
We are about 10 years away from a major municipality declaring it illegal to arrest black people, regardless of the crime they may be accused of committing.

Rape? Not a crime. Homicide? Not a crime?

The real crime is noticing patterns, which clearly show city after city abandoning standards governing civil behavior if black people can't refrain from engaging in anti-social actions.

New York City No Longer Prosecuting Turnstile Jumping Because 89% of Those Arrested are Black or Hispanic

Previously on SBPDL: Because 90% of Fare Evaders of Washington D.C. Metro are Black, Campaign Underway to Decriminalize Fare Evasion to Fight "Racism"

It's obvious we are nearing the point where a municipality passes a law making it illegal for police to arrest black or brown people. [Subway Policing In New York City Still Has A Race Problem, Gothamist, 10-12-18]:
For New York City police, turnstile jumping has long been much more than a class A misdemeanor. The strict policing of people evading the fare on public transit was justified as an all-purpose solution to the rampant crime that plagued the city’s subways in the 1980s. It became one of the first examples for the New York Police Department that cracking down on minor offenses—the controversial “broken windows” theory of policing—might restore order to the city. 
In NYC, black and brown people are now free to turnstile jump (fare evade) without any repercussions... 
But New York might be changing its mind about turnstile jumping. With broken windows strategies increasingly discredited by many criminologists, a more lenient approach to this minor offense has taken root in New York’s courts, and perhaps from there found its way onto subway platforms across the city. Last year, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. announced that his office would stop prosecuting most cases of fare evasion, which includes riding public transit without paying the fare through any means such as jumping a subway turnstile, slipping through an emergency gate or sliding onto a bus through the back door without paying. Since Vance’s announcement, such arrests dropped from a high of 25,000 in 2016 and are now on track to be fewer than 10,000 this year. The NYPD has said that the majority of turnstile jumpers are now issued civil summonses, not arrested.  
Some city leaders wonder though—should turnstile jumping be a crime at all?“We’re making progress,” says City Councilman Rory Lancman, whose office has been advocating that fare evasion always be considered a civil offense, like a traffic violation that would result in a ticket, not a criminal record. He said that “arresting 10,000 people a year … is still 10,000 people too many.” 
A Marshall Project analysis of New York Division of Criminal Justice Services data from 2014 through June of this year shows that while the numbers of turnstile arrests have decreased significantly, what has not changed is who gets arrested: 89 percent of those arrested this year are black or Hispanic, virtually the same proportion since 2014. Across the city, neighborhoods with the most turnstile arrests per subway card swipe tend to be predominantly black or Hispanic.
Crime is the new entitlement for black and brown people in what's left of the United States of America, as white people fear being called a "racist" more than they do losing their civilization.

Her name is Brooke Joiner: Young White Mother Murdered by Black Career Criminal in Southern Georgia

Lamentably, the era of social media allows us to peer into the private lives of those who momentarily are in the news. 

People we would never meet in our lives become available to us, pictures (and sometimes videos) of all their years conveniently captured and catalogued for their family and friends. 

Brooke Joiner was a 31-year-old white woman, a mother to a young boy. 

31-year-old Brooke Joiner and her young son. She was murdered by a black career criminal

Her entire life is available on Facebook, with pictures of her young son at Halloween and Christmas, a reminder Brooke cherished her role of being a mother. 

Brooke's cover image was a black-and-white photo of her and her young son, walking hand in hand down a dirt road. It's a classic southern image for this daughter of the great state of Georgia, but it's important to remember the hand the young boy held will never be there to hold again. 

His mother was murdered by a black career criminal. [ALLEGED KILLER ARRESTED IN VIDALIA, Southeastgeorgiatoday.com, 11-17-18]:
Less than 24 hours after a brutal murder in Vidalia, police jailed the man they suspect of the killing. 
Vidalia police say 29-year-old Tyrone Burns of Vidalia was apprehended Saturday morning about 11:20 o'clock in the neighborhood near Charles Wood Field by the Toombs County Sheriff's Office. 
Burns is charged in the shooting death Friday of 31-year-old Brooke Joiner, manager of the R.J. Pope Men's Store at Palmer Place in Vidalia.  She was shot and killed in the back room of the store after Burns robbed the store. 
Police say he is charged with aggravated assault, armed robbery, felony murder and malice murder and is being held in the Toombs Detention Center in Lyons.
The face of criminal justice reform, a black career criminal who murdered a young white mother
Vidalia Police Chief Frank Waits says Burns has a one of the worst criminal records he's encountered in his career.  The chief said his apprehension is a classic example of police cooperation.  According to the chief, 50 law enforcement officers worked throughout the night to solve the crime and he commended members of the Vidalia Police Department, the Toombs County Sheriff's Office, the GBI, Georgia State Patrol and SWAT members for their support. 
Middle Judicial Circuit District Attorney Hayward Altman says Burns' first appearance hearing will be held Monday morning at 10:30 before Judge Cathy Palmer in Toombs County Superior Court.  He says he will oppose any request for bond due to the nature of the crime and because of Burns' criminal record.
The Facebook cover photo of Brooke holding the hand of her young son's hand as they walk down a dirt path toward the future together is almost impossible to look at, knowing how her journey in life ended. 

She was murdered by a black career criminal, the type of individual we are constantly told - lectured at by those in power - represents our greatest asset. 


They are the greatest liability to western civilization. 

Rest in peace, Brooke Joiner. 

If white privilege existed, your young son would get to pull the lever, ending Tyrone Burns life in state-sponsored execution. Instead, you were murdered by a black career criminal because the state refuses to deal honestly with black crime and anti-social behavior by blacks.

Because 90% of Fare Evaders of Washington D.C. Metro are Black, Campaign Underway to Decriminalize Fare Evasion to Fight "Racism"

Previously on SBPDL: Since Blacks are arrested disproportionately for fare evasion on public transportation, nationwide movement for decriminalization

Can we just make it illegal to arrest black people for any crime, and get it over with? Black anti-social behavior is absolutely destroying what's left of western civilization in the United States, so why not just decriminalize it once and for all so the racial disparities in the criminal justice system disappear overnight? The Washington D.C. City Council seems to agree... 
Law and order is an anachronism in a nation where black and brown commit all the crime. The latter represents proof the criminal justice is inherently racist... 

The Washington Lawyers' Committee found more than 90 percent of people cited for fare evasion between 2016 and February 2018 were black., WUSA.com, 9-25-18]:
WASHINGTON -- #ItsNotFare is the name behind a new campaign to decriminalize fare evasion on DC Metro buses and trains. 
It comes on the heels of a new report that revealed more than 20,000 citations were issued for fare evasion in a two-year period. 
More than 90 percent of those riders were black. 
With wheat paste and a piece of paper, Jessica Raven was hoping to make a statement. 
RELATED: Report: 'Racial disparities' in Metro's crackdown on fare evaders 
“No one should be in jail because they can’t afford to access public transit,” Raven, with Collective Action for Safe Spaces, said. 
At the center of this new “It’s not fare” campaign is a woman WUSA9 first reported about in February: Diamond Rust. 
Metro Police slammed Rust to the ground and arrested her in Southeast DC seven months ago. 
Four of her teeth broke, her face was burst open, and her knee was fractured. 
The incident happened in front of her two small children because police said she did not pay to get on the bus and resisted arrest. 
Rust was a student at Ballou STAY High School who owned a DC One card – which allows students to ride for free. 
However, Rust did not have her student card with her on the day of the arrest. 
“I was really glad that you had already highlighted the issue,” Raven said about WUSA9’s exclusive report. “People were outraged when they saw her story. I don’t want people to forget that she and so many other black women have this experience all the time.” 
The Washington Lawyers’ Committee found more than 90 percent of people cited for fare evasion between 2016 and February 2018 were black. 
Nearly half of those riders who were cited were black people under 25-years-old.“These acts aren’t harming anybody and yet police are — metro transit police are taking advantage of these opportunities to further criminalize marginalized communities,” Raven claimed. 
CASS is working with the ACLU to throw support behind a bill to decriminalize fare evasion in the District. 
If passed, it’ll make fare evasion a civil offense instead of criminal and also reduce the fine from $300 to $100. 
Metro previously announced it loses up to $20-million every year from fare evasion.The agency believes enforcing the issue reduces employee assaults and improves customers’ safety.
“It doesn’t to me make transit safer if what we’re doing is – if the strategy is to make sure that a lot of people can’t access it --make sure that poor, black, and brown people can’t access public transit,” Raven said. “That’s not safety. That’s the opposite.” 
The criminal charges against Diamond Rust were dropped and she told WUSA9 that she is doing better. 
WUSA9 reached out to Metro for a comment on this story, but a spokesperson never commented on this issue.
Black-Run America (BRA) is alive and well in the Washington D.C. area, where white taxpayers/white riders of the Metro system subsidize blacks (and brown people) to ride for free, with the movement to stop arresting those who don't pay their fare gaining momentum.

Don't you get it yet, white people? The future is now.

Whites playing by the rules (and paying to ensure those rules are only enforced against whites), while blacks and brown people unite to protect black and brown criminals from being punished for their actions.
