The Gouger: It’s Possibly the Year’s Weirdest, Grossest Murder Story, Yet the National MSM and The Smoking Gun are Assiduously Ignoring It; I Wonder Why?
Man Kills His Uncle by Gouging His Eyes Out with a Spoon.
Meet Timayo Sharraud Knight, 31, a once-obscure madman who has gained a measure of local notoriety down Mobile way by murdering his 79-year-old, disabled uncle, Bonnie Pogue, by gouging the man’s eyes out with a spoon. Knight committed the attack on April 18; his victim succumbed to his wounds on April 23. And yet, the national MSM and the crime news site The Smoking Gun have refused to cover the story. I wonder why?
On rare occasion, a simple-minded black man has confessed to a crime had not committed. The defense bar and journalists who support black felons have joined forces to seek and get countless black felons off, and to make law enforcement’s job impossible.
The basis for the “innocent-black-men-confessing” ruse is the 1963 Career Girls Murders, in which innocent but slow-witted black George Whitmore Jr., 19, was induced to confess to the rapes and murders of Emily Hoffert, 23, and Janice Wylie, 21, both of whom were white. The real rapist-killer turned out to be psychopathic, white Hispanic drug addict, Richard Robles.
The Career Girls Case was immortalized in fictionalized form as the Emmy Award-winning TV movie, The Marcus-Nelson Murders, starring Telly Savalas, which made such a splash with viewers and critics alike that CBS spun into the long-running cop series, Kojak.
The pro-criminal lobby has also sought to extend the “innocent-black-men-confessing” ruse by adding guilty-as-hell black males, such as the attackers of the “Central Park Jogger,” Trisha Meili, and even cold-blooded cop-killer, Wesley Cook/Mumia Abu-Jamal, to their rolls of the “innocent.”
The Gouger is just the sort of story that sells newspapers and boosts TV and radio ratings, and yet the national MSM are maintaining media silence.
Forget it Jake, it’s Chinatown.
P.S. It just occurred to me that a black kid named Roland Trone tried to gouge out my eyeballs—but only one at a time—in two attacks in my hometown of Long Beach, New York.
