We have been busy of late, but we believe only one news outlet, WCBD, actually covered the recent downtown event where hardcore racist Malik Shabazz called for blacks to kill whites. His birth name (or government name as they call it) is Paris Lewis. That sort of explains his violent tendencies, huh? For those of you who don’t keep up with these things Shabazz is such an extremist even the extremely liberal Southern Poverty Law Center has declared him a virulent racist. How bad do you have to be to have a crackhead Mayor by the name of Marion Barry fire you? How bad do you have to be when even the extremely racist Nation of Islam kicks you out of their group for being too extreme?
Shabazz is now affiliated with the New Black Prancer Party and is the current president of a group of extremists called Black Lawyers for Justice. Both of those groups have shown up in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, North Charleston and now Charleston trying to instigate a race war. You might say Shabazz and his groups are brothers in arms with Dylann Roof as they seem to have the same goal. The fact that Shabazz is a lawyer urging violence and trying to initiate a race war sort of makes you wonder about the legal profession and their tendency to cover for their own. This guy hasn’t been disbarred yet? Go figure.
We bring all this up because this group of extreme racists is planning another of their hate filled functions for this Sunday in Marion Square. We thought you folks might want to know who else appeared in that video in support of Shabazz. Yes, locals are also encouraging racial violence.
Let’s start with the guy in the green shirt. His name is Jonathan Thrower. He goes by the made up name “Shakem Amenhotep Akhet” on Hatebook. Thrower has made the bulk of his page private in the past few days, probably because there was some talk on there about stealing a Confederate flag from a “cracka” so they could burn it during the protest. We have had interactions with Thrower before when he left his racist comments on some of our stories. As with most of the individuals claiming membership in these hate groups, Thrower has a criminal history. Thrower is from the Otranto Road area of North Charleston.
Distribution of Cocaine - Reduced to Possession of Cocaine by the 9th Circuit Solicitor. Sentenced to 2 years, suspended in favor of 18 months probation.
PWID Marijuana - Reduced to Possession of Marijuana by the 9th Circuit Solicitor. Sentenced to 30 days, suspended while on probation.
Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol - Plead guilty. Sentenced to 1 year, suspended in favor of 1 year of probation.
Unlawful Possession of a Pistol - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
2000 Charges (Berkeley County):
Possession of a Stolen Pistol - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor because this was “not a state charge” and Thrower was supposedly indicted on other firearms charges. Maybe assistant solicitor Burns Wetmore was new in 2000 and didn’t really know what was a state charge and what wasn’t. We find this surprising because we have been told he was one of the better solicitors in that office.
Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol - Dismissed. See above.
2000 Charges (Charleston County):
Trafficking Marijuana - Plead guilty. Sentenced to 4 years, concurrent with a federal sentence. Of course it would be concurrent.
Three other drug charges, a conspiracy charge, a stolen vehicle charge and two gun charges were dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
Two counts of Forgery - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
PWID Cocaine, PWID Cocaine Near a School, PWID Marijuana, PWID Marijuana Near a School (x2), Possession of a Sawed-off Shotgun (x2) - All dismissed because the federal prosecutor picked up the case. We doubt the federal case ever went anywhere. We are told the officer who arrested Thrower on these charges was fired by NCPD when he went off the deep end.
The guy in the light colored t-shirt with the ankh necklace who introduced Malik Shabazz should be familiar to our regular readers. His name is Demond McElveen. McElveen also hails from the Otranto Road area. He is currently free on bond and spending that time encouraging black folks to kill white folks. McElveen was arrested in March of 2015 and charged with Distribution of Meth/Crack, Possession of Crack Near a School and Unlawful Possession of a Pistol by a Convicted Felon. He was released the same day he was arrested on a total bond of $85,000 which Judge James “Rainbows and Unicorns” Gosnell apparently saw fit to reduce a month later to an all inclusive $50,000 bond for the three charges.
Considering the fact that McElveen is prohibited from possessing firearms under both federal and state law we have to wonder about this photo he posted to his Hatebook page at approximately 8:45 p.m. Friday night.
It certainly is nice to know a convicted killer, free on bond, with an urge to kill white folks has access to so many guns. Bet you won’t hear President Obama complain about this criminal’s guns. We could rehash his convictions on drug, gun, ABWIK, ABHAN and manslaughter charges, but it would be much easier if you just click this link and read it there.
Based on McElveen’s post below we have to wonder if Malik Shabazz paid that $10,000 reward to the white woman who led police to Dylann Roof? Somehow, we doubt it.
In this post from May we learn McElveen’s 15 year old son was the person initially charged with the January murder of Travis Brown on Otranto Road. Charges were eventually dropped even though it was determined the 15 year old was present and in possession of a firearm during the shooting. Notice McElveen doesn’t think that was important.
After McElveen’s arrest for drug distribution and weapons possession in March he tried to justify his criminal history claiming he never “robbed, stole or raped anyone”. Those four counts of assault & battery with intent to kill and that count of murder plead down to involuntary manslaughter were conveniently overlooked by Demond, as was the fact he has been charged multiple times with selling narcotics in the very neighborhoods he claims to defend.
Apparently, the Assistant Police Chief of NCPD, Reggie Burgess is friendlier with the militant types than we were aware. Here he is with some of the “black lives mater” folks. If you follow the news you will remember the NAACP and James Johnson of NAN were a bit upset that Burgess was not appointed to be chief upon the departure of Zumalt. These comments make us wonder if there is some behind the scenes politicking going on since the city and NCPD seem to have caved to political correctness of late. Some of these folks seem to think having Burgess as police chief will solve all of their problems. Wait, we thought removing the Confederate flag from the collective consciousness was supposed to do that.
Update: We have been informed that the photo below was taken at the candlelight vigil for Walter Scott attended by a number of North Charleston officials. We have also been told the photo has been cropped to exclude other folks who posed for the picture. No word yet on who those people were. We are told that Burgess was upset when this cropped photo first appeared in May. Burgess himself does not claim any affiliation or membership in the BLM movement.
This post has us a bit concerned. Not because of what McElveen said, but because of the comment of someone claiming to be a correctional officer for SCDC. Does anyone else think it is improper for her to be associated with a virulent racist who calls for the murder of all whites? A quick review of her friends list shows associations with a number of the criminally inclined previously featured in these pages. Most law enforcement agencies have policies against officers associating with known felons. Given the current climate where officers are fired for stating their personal beliefs or wearing certain items of clothing we have to wonder how SCDC feels about a C.O. associating with known violent felons.
Another Otranto Road resident in that image above is Denise Joann Williams-Cromwell. She also uses the name J. Denise Cromwell. You can also see her in the image with the NCPD assistant chief. Other than a prior arrest for unlawful use of a telephone (threats, harassment) in her younger days, Cromwell has no criminal history. Cromwell has actually done some good things in the community and even has a white adopted daughter. Giving her the benefit of the doubt, she might not have realized the murder of white people was going to be promoted at that rally. Note her comment below which was posted prior to the event, “Please come in the spirit of PEACE love and hope”. Maybe she was surprised by the exhortations to murder, maybe not. We suppose we will know for sure if she shows up at the rally planned for Sunday.
Another speaker at that rally was Hashim Nzinga. He is also a convicted felon who had a sympathetic prosecutor drop charges of felon in possession of a firearm.
As you can see some of these folks are just like the murderer of nine innocents. The only difference is they want to kill people of the opposite skin color.
