"Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi."
-- The mantra of those who believe there's still something left in trying to persevere in the United States of America
No matter what political force arises, no matter who may stand up and breath life into the Historic American Nation, what once was can never be again.
|All she did was attack four or five elderly white women... why make her stay in jail more than six months?|
There's no need to cry for yesterday, because no matter the lamentations for what you once knew to be, the only certainty is tomorrow will come regardless of your supplications.
This has always been the one reality of the world no wishful thinking or divine interference can ever change.
Which brings us to this shining example of Black-Run America (BRA) on February 1, 2016: Demesha Hicks of Louisville. She, as a black female, attacked multiple elderly white women in 2013 after scouting them out at a local grocery store (shades of the original Death Wish). Here's one of the initial stories. [Police: woman beat and robbed elderly victims, WDRB.com, 11-15-13]:
Police say a Louisville woman beat up elderly women and then robbed them.
The suspect is 27-year-old Demesha Hicks. She is locked up at Metro Corrections.
Police say she followed the victims home from grocery stores. But while they may have been elderly, they refused to go down without a fight.
"I called her a dirty bit**, and then I turned around and said, oh, you wouldn't even make a dirty bit**," says Donna Woods, who is a beating and robbery victim.
Those are pretty strong words coming from an 82-year-old. Woods says they were directed at the person who injured her arm. "She fractured it when she threw me from the steps to the basket out in the yard," explains Woods.
It happened on Monday. Police say Hicks attacked Woods and at least three other elderly women.
"I noticed her when she got a hold of me. She was right on me before I could do any...but I couldn't do anything 'cause I don't walk too steady," says Woods.
Metro Police say Hicks found her victims at local grocery stores. "She would drive around the parking lot, looking for a victim that fit was she was looking for, which would be an elderly female, easy target purse," says Det. Aaron Tinelli.
Police say once Hicks identified her victims, she followed them home from the store and then attacked.
Tinelli explains, "Once they got to their home and they exited their vehicle, she was rushing up to them, knocking them down, beating them and then taking their purse."
Detective Tinelli arrested Hicks on Tuesday and says images from surveillance videos at some of the stores helped them identify her, and she eventually confessed to the crimes. He says, "We asked her why she did it and she told us it was just the hardest year of her life and she had a very difficult time."
"I was happy, I was very happy," says Woods, who is relieved that Hicks is off the streets. "Oh yeah, I hope they put her under the jail."Unfortunately, there would be no jail for Demesha Hicks to be "put under." A black judge in Louisville would work to get her out of jail after serving only six months on a 20-year-sentence. [Shock probation granted for woman who assaulted elderly victims, WDRB.com, 1-28-16]:
A second chance for the Louisville woman who attacked and robbed the elderly.
Demesha Hicks is getting out of prison, six months into a 20-year sentence.
Hicks looked for senior citizens at grocery stores, followed them home, and robbed them, sometimes violently. This morning Judge Brian Edwards granted Hicks' request for shock probation after a hearing earlier in the week.
Attorneys say Hicks was a single mother, homeless and desperate when she committed the crimes, and this was her first arrest..
The Mirror of Erised: The past isn't coming back, folks. No matter how badly we may want the greatness of America to return, it's behind us.
Family members of the victims voiced their opposition to shock probation during a hearing on Tuesday.
"You do the crime, you do the time," said Brian Tomes, a relative of one of the victims Hicks attacked. "What message are we sending to people just because it's your first offense...that if you say you're sorry, it's OK."
While shock probation was granted for Hicks, she must still serve home incarceration for a period of time and report to seven counties daily to transition back into the community.This is America in 2016. A black woman attacking multiple (elderly) white women, gets her 20-year sentence commuted after a mere six months.
By a black judge.
There is no reformation coming, people.
When you understand this, you'll be able to calmly accept that America is irredeemable and embrace the future.
However uncertain it may be, there is one absolute certainty: the past greatness of the nation is never returning. You can spend your whole life staring into the Mirror of Erised and waste it away, but it won't bring back the past.
