SICK … Convicted Cop Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal Gives Graduation Speech via VIDEO at Goddard College in Vermont
What the hell ever happened to the Green mountain state of Vermont, Ethan Allen would be disgusted.
On Sunday, convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal gave a graduation speech to students at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont by video. Unbelievable. Mumia Abu-Jamal is currently serving a life sentence for the 1981 shooting death and murder of Philedapphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. It is actually the second time Abu-Jamal has spoken at graduation, but what would you expect from a liberal arts college in the People’s Republic of Vermont where this cop killer received a degree.
Maureen Faulkner, the widow of Daniel Faulkner, called choosing Abu-Jamal “despicable” and “not appropriate.” The police in Philadelphia held a silent vigil for 25 minutes Sunday to protest Mumia’s speech. As stated by Chief Inspector Anthony Boyle, “We need to demonstrate how ludicrous this is.” Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) urged the Vermont college on Thursday to revoke its invitation to have Mumia Abu-Jamal as a commencement speaker. Michael O’Neil, the president of the Vermont Troopers’ Association also asked Goodard College to rescind Abu-Jamal invitation.
On Sunday, Mumia Abu-Jamal spoke by video to 20 students receiving bachelor degrees Sunday from Goddard College in Plainfield.
He told the graduates to “think about the myriad of problems that beset this land and strive to make it better.”
Abu-Jamal said Goddard reawakened his love of learning and — in his mind — allowed him to leave death row and travel the world.
The decision to allow Abu-Jamal to speak angered police and others in Vermont and Pennsylvania. Abu-Jamal was initially sentenced to death in the killing of Officer Daniel Faulkner but re-sentenced to life in 2012.
Get ready for the LIBERAL double standard to allow a cop killer to speak at a commencement ceremony and call it freedom of speech. In a statement posted on the school’s website, Interim President Bob Kenny said that by selecting Abu-Jamal the students are showing “their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.” REALLY? So this liberal college president celebrates the First Amendment of Freedom of Speech when it serves his radical liberal views, but has an issue with that same First Amendment when it comes to freedom of the Press as the college closed the graduation to the media after claiming it was open. Goddard College also claimed they wanted to protect the student’s privacy. Wat a bunch of gutless cowards, so brave in saying they want a cop killer as their commencement speaker, but don’t want the public to know who they are. And you wonder where gutless, double standard liberals are spawn from.
The ceremony was originally planned for 4 p.m. and media was told it was open to the public.
However, two days ago, college leaders changed the time to 1 p.m. without notifying the media.
They cited security reasons, saying they received threats this past week.
They also wanted to protect the student’s privacy.

Missing NDSU student – Thomas Gregory Bearson
Bearson, an 18-year-old NDSU freshman, last known contact was at 3:40 a.m. Saturday morning, according to police. His cellphone is currently not working.
Lt. Joel Vettel from the Fargo Police Department says police were contacted when Bearson did not show up for a scheduled visit back home in Sartell. University police searched for Bearson in his dormitory room but did not locate him.
Vettel said police canvassed the 800 block area of 14th Street North, the last known place where Bearson was seen.
Bearson was last seen wearing a baseball hat and a blue Sartell track and field shirt along with Khaki pants. Tom is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs approximately 155 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes.
A fellow student told The Forum earlier Monday he saw Bearson shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday, hours after the missing student tweeted that he was lost and needed a ride.
The last tweet from Bearson’s Twitter account was sent at 1:23 a.m. Saturday and reads, “dude it’s jake come pick us up.” It also reads, “We are so lost and we are going to die. Just get somebody.”
In an interview Monday, the recipient of the tweet, Cody Mead, also an NDSU student, said Bearson and “Jake” found a ride to Mead’s house in north Fargo after that tweet.
“Jake” refers to Mead’s roommate, Jake Wenzel, who went to high school with Bearson, Mead said. Mead met Bearson for the first time that night.
Early on Sept. 12, Bearson was arrested for driving under the influence and minor in possession. An officer pulled him over for driving west in an eastbound lane a few blocks from Reed Hall, according to court papers.
A breath test found that Bearson’s blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent. He failed one field sobriety test, and because of his poor balance at the time, two others were not given for safety reasons, court papers said.
UPDATE II: On Monday, police expanded the search to the neighborhood where he was seen leaving a party around 3 a.m. Saturday.
Bearson tweeted he was lost and needed a ride.
NDSU says his cell phone appears to not be working anymore.

Arrest Warrant Issued for Jesse L. Matthew for Traffic Violation, Person of Interest in Case of Missing Hannah Graham
An arrest warrant has been issued for Jesse L. “JL” Matthew, the person of interest in the disappearance of missing UVA student Hannah Graham. The arrest warrant is not for his connection with the case of missing Hannah Graham, but instead for a traffic violation for reckless driving. Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said at a news conference Sunday that Virginia State Police have issued warrants for Jesse Matthew on a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving. Police Chief Longo went on the say, “I believe Jesse Matthew was the last person she was seen with before she vanished off the face of the Earth because it’s been a week and we can’t find her. I’ve made no mistake about it. We want to talk to Jesse Matthew. We want to talk to him. We want to talk to him about his interaction with this sweet, young girl we can’t find.” 18 year old Hannah Elizabeth Graham has been missing since September 13, 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew, POI
An arrest warrant has been issued for a person of interest in the disappearance of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, but he is not being sought for anything to do with the case.
Charlottesville, Va., police said today they are looking for Jesse L. Matthew, 32, on two counts of reckless driving, because he sped away from the police station Saturday after showing up there and asking for a lawyer.
Police say Matthew was seen driving at a high rate of speed, before he evaded capture by authorities monitoring his whereabouts.
Matthew is still a “person with whom we would like to talk to about the whereabouts of Hannah Graham,” Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said.
Charlottesville Police ID the Person of Interest in the Case of Missing UVA Student Hannah Graham as Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew

The authorities had only previously described the person of interest as black male, 32-year-old, 6′ 2″ tall with dreadlocks dressed in all white. 18 year old Hannah Graham has been missing since 9/13/14.
Charlottesville police have identified the person of interest in the case of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham as Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew. In a press conference on Friday, police revealed they had identified a person of interest in the case, but they did not release his name at that time. Police call him a person of interest, they have not referred to him as a suspect nor is he charged with any crime related to the Hannah Graham case. Police say they have had contact with him but formal questioning has not taken place.
Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew has confirmed he met the 18-year old in Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall and bought her drinks, but says she never got in his car. She went her way and he went his. Hmm, sounds an awful lot like he just left her on the beach, doesn’t it?

Just when you thought American college kids could not get any more ignorant … They’re parents must be so proud.
Who would be dumb enough to sign a petition in support of ISIS … From MRC TV, courtesy of CNS News comes the following VIDEO that just makes one shake their head in disbelief. Student after clueless student walked up to the individual with the petition to support ISIS and they signed it. Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph was able to get 11 people to sign the petition. The only saving grace were two guys, one wearing a hockey jersey who stated, “you should be ashamed to even live in this country” and the other wearing tan shorts and shades who went on a tirade regarding the ignorant individuals that would sign such a petition. KUDOS to both of you.
Maybe one of the most head scratching exchange was when the petitioner said, “war is not the answer”. The response from the backpack wearing student, “No it’s not”. Then he says, “beadings are not the answer either” The petitioner quickly and sarcastically responds, “It depends on what the question is.” Then amazingly the student replies, “yeah, that’s true”.
I can only assume that the college students who were willing to sign my petition calling on President Obama to support the terror group, were ignorant to the group’s existence.
God, I hope so!
Over the period of about an hour, I stood on the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked passing students to sign my petition. The petition was adorned with the ISIS flag above the unambiguous headline, “SUPPORT ISIS.”

Police released photos taken from a surveillance camera three hours before Graham went missing. The images show her dressed in black slacks and a gold and black, bare-midriff top with mesh cutouts, the same outfit she is believed to have worn at the time she went missing.
Spokeswoman Corinne Geller said state police have been in close contact with city investigators but are not currently involved in the investigation.
“We are in communication and we’re assisting where we can,” Geller said.
The search for Graham is hitting social media as well as the streets.
Pleas from Graham’s friends are being shared on hundreds of Facebook pages and friends on Twitter have reported that she told friends she was headed to a party before she disappeared.

Graham is described as approximately 5’11″ tall with a skinny build, with blue eyes, light brown hair and freckles. She was last seen wearing a black crop top with mesh cutouts.
Charlottesville police started looking for Graham Sunday when she was reported missing. “Detectives are out speaking with any person who had communication with her. Detectives are searching her phone records, bank accounts, computer, to see if there is any indication of where she might be,” said Captain Gary Pleasants of the Charlottesville Police Department.
On Sunday searchers used a bloodhound to try to track a scent but it turned up nothing. Searchers will likely bring in another bloodhound Tuesday.
Monday, the Virginia State Police joined the search.
Hannah Elizabeth Graham, the missing University of Virginia student who has not been heard from since Saturday, was spotted on surveillance video outside of a bar early Saturday morning, according to the Charlottesville Police Department.
The FBI joined the search for Graham on Tuesday. Also Tuesday, the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office assisted with what they are calling a search and rescue effort.
“Last night we expanded our search about 25 to 30 blocks Right now we are focusing on another five to six block area which is outside of the zone we looked at last night,” said Captain Guy Williams of the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office.
Police adjusted their search area Tuesday for a missing University of Virginia student, at least the fourth young woman to go missing in the area in the past five years.
The shift in the search for Hannah Elizabeth Graham is based on video that police obtained showing Graham walking early Saturday outside of a bar where she was last seen, Charlottesville police Lt. Robbie Roberts said.
The video, which was not released, shifted the search east of the original focus of the investigation, he said.
If anyone has any with information regarding the whereabouts of Hannah Elizabeth Graham, please contact the Charlottesville Police Department at 434-970-3280 or Crimestoppers at 434-977-4000.
GW Students Unaware of 9/11 Anniversary, Or Journalist’s Names Beheaded by ISIS … But Are Able to Name Celebrities Involved in Nude Photo Scandal
SAD, JUST PLAIN SAD … SO MUCH FOR A COLLEGE EDUCATION THESE DAYS.
The Young America’s Foundation released a VIDEO on Wednesday, a day before the 13th anniversary of 9-11, where George Washington students were asked whether they were aware of the significance of the date and whether they knew the names of the two American journalists who were recently beheaded by the terrorist group ISIS. Pathetically, for the most part, they had no idea. Oh but fear not for the future America, most all could name the celebrities involved in the recent nude pic hacking scandal.
Other than the two co-eds in the beginning of the VIDEO who seem to have a clue and up on current affairs and know their history, perhaps the best answer of anyone in this VIDEO was when asked by the YAF spokeswoman Ashley Pratte asked about President Obama’s strategy for dealing with ISIS. One girl responded, ”Does he have one?”
The results of the study:
- 29 of 30 (97%) students could could name a celebrity involved in the nude hacking scandal.
- 4 of 30 (13%) could name either of the American journalists, James Foley or Steven Sotloff.
- 6 in 30 (20%) knew this week was the anniversary of 9-11. What’s even more tragic is not only have these kids forgotten, they may never have known.
Maybe we have finally figured out how to get the youth vote … just have all the candidates in their political ads be in their birthday suits?
