Why Did Mainstream Media Drop Downtown Denver Hate Crime Spree Into the Memory Hole?

21 more formally charged in downtown Denver attacks

Imagine the scene. A couple white gangs in Denver intiate new members by sending them to downtown Denver where they are told to selectively beat, attack, and rob people of black or hispanic origin who are known to have popular social spots in certain sections of the downtown Denver area. The Denver police, DA's office and even the FBI participate in creating a task force to stop these racial crimes. In the end, 35 arrest warrants are issued. The moment the police department holds its first press conference about having made 32 arrests the day before in this racist hate crime spree, media nationwide - no, worldwide - catch on and the story goes viral. All major US networks and nationally-read newspapers immediately catch the story and run with it much as they did with the Duke University gang-rape allegation. Civil and human rights leaders appear and gather before microphones hurling moralistic invective at racists everywhere. The name "Denver 35" is coined. Headlines are streaked with the shocking revelations about a white racist gang attacking people and the talking heads babble about the continued problem with racism and white supremacism in this country has and how can this still be going on, etc., etc., etc...

Everything in the above paragraph happened except the races of the attackers and victims were reversed the national media coverage never manifested. Why did this story which is obviously huge in scope - in fact the largest hate crime spree in Denver history - not get a single drop of national media coverage? Why, indeed? Why, worse, did many, including myself, predict this would happen? Because the victims of this racial crime spree were white and the perpetrators were black. Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrisey stated that young white males were specifically singled out. One white woman was sexually assaulted (while being told that white women want it) and injuries to some white male victims included a broken jaw, a broken eye socket, a skull fracture and coma as well as another man being thrown through a plate glass window.

The same national media who chose to pick up on the Duke University scam and run with it like a quarterback on steroids are the same people who to a man ignored this story. Isn't that something? I kept hoping for just a bit of coverage.. Something. Anything. I kept looking at CNN, MSNBC, and even FoxNews, the so-called white racist network. Not a peep. The day following the police press conference. Nothing.

If this does not illustrate the anti-white bias of the modern politically correct walk-on-eggshells climate in this country, what does? "Anti-racist" my ass.

Denver voters will be asked to create commission to probe UFOs

Jeff Peckman, a self-described entrepreneur who at the age of 55 still lives with mommy and who came up with a fake UFO video made with some kind of sock puppet that moves like a human arm in an obvious cheap media stunt to sell DVDs has collected enough signatures to get another one of his trash initiatives onto Denver ballots in the next election. He collected 10,000 signatures (only 4,211 of the names turned out to be acceptable) to place his kooky idea to force the city of Denver to create a UFO commission for the purpose of gathering evidence that space aliens have been visiting the earth.

Perhaps Richard Heene has been hanging out with this guy. Why are they attracted to Colorado?

Mayor Hickenloopy Wants to Feed Pigeons With Your Tax Dollars

Oh boy!

I can’t help but ask (if I haven’t already?) what the hell is wrong with liberals? This city has a mayor who since day one of his occupancy of the mayor’s office has made it his personal crusade to “end homelessness in Denver.” Unless you’re 5 years old or such a blinded Utopian, anyone with half a brain knows there is no such thing. You would assume, and usually correctly so, that such bubbly nonsense would just be some warm-fuzzy political slogan. But oh, no. This guy is serious, and he’s trying to do it largely with public tax dollars.

Does it matter that we’re in a recession, that nearly 200 Denver city employees have been laid off, others required furlough time, cutting pay raises for city hospital workers, postponing raises for cops and budget cuts that affect city libraries? Nope! Somehow, magically, this Utopian bobblehead has declared that the city can afford over two million samoleons to house derelicts who already flock to Denver in large numbers even from out of state because they heard on the grapevine about the services offered to the homeless in the downtown Denver area, hence the pigeon comment.

What happens when you try to take a small amount of food and feed a few pigeons?

You think its bad downtown now? Keep feeding these pigeons.

When Trash Attacks

If only I had brought my camcorder.

Downtown Denver McDonald's restaurants are a magnet for the barrel scrapings of society. If its not the homeboys speaking in excessively loud voices while making grandiose hand gestures and mixing "yo yo baby" into their narrative while they chew their fries with open mouths and simultaneously rap, then its winos who will either buy a small coffee or a dollar burger and act as if that entitles them to loiter for the next 4 hours and stink up the place, or its winos sneaking into the restaurant and sitting in the back trying to go unnoticed since they haven't bought anything and want to loiter for hours and stink up the place. Tonight, however, I experienced something a little different: The hungry drug addict.

Alcoholics and drug addicts will spend as little money on food as is possible, consequently they'll either depend on food lines or food theft. Entering McDonald's right after me was an unsavory couple, loud, obnoxious, and demanding. The female of the pair, an American of Mexican origin who spoke unaccented, perfect American English with semi-scraggly hair and prominent blubber-like lips -- especially the lower one which both portruded and hung downward as if an invisible weight was hanging from it -- plunked down an extremely wrinkled McDonald's bag on the countertop (cutting in front of me) and immediately and loudly demanded to speak to the manager. When he came over, the woman angrily said that she was given "frozen fries" and "a flat soda" and plunked down an empty drink cup on the counter. Loud "I can't believe this" and "what kind of place is this" followed from her mouth. The manager said they don't give people frozen fries which only caused her to be even louder. If that wasn't bad enough her idiot boyfriend began chiming in, louder than her. Putting on a lame act of pretending to be Mexican, this blonde-haired, blue-eyed pale face began speaking bits of Spanish like, "Papas, mi papas... No salt.. Si, mon!!" and, "I no speak good Eeeenglish." He would look down at his blubber-lipped love and speak a few more words of Spanish as if we were supposed to think this guy was actually a Mexican. In a quieter, yet still very audible voices, the two conversed in perfect American English between the outbursts "papas" and "si, mon!!" which got the Mexican employees laughing. At that point the manager got sick of the crap and offered a refund and then gave them a free meal. The two finally shut up and began speaking to each other in more perfect American English. Clearly this blonde moron has had enough experience with Mexicans to know that one game they enjoy playing is pretending they don't understand Gringo to get out of trouble. Too bad his pale face, blonde hair and blue eyes give him away, the idiot. You can't expect drug-addled refuse to think things through, though; after all, they got what they wanted. Free food. Either one ate the food and the other came for free seconds or they found a discarded bag outside and cashed in.

This, by the way, happened less than an hour before closing so a Denver CARES paddy wagon for drunkards had pulled up and was rounding up the drunken homeless loiterers in the restaurant and piling them inside the van for an overnight trip to detox.

At the same restaurant some years ago, I had a black guy in front of me who ordered only a sandwich. He was given the sandwich, then lingered a moment, then grabbed a straw, stuck it in a drink intended for someone with me and walked out with it, slurping.

Inner City Apathy and Blame

In the summer of 2007, several hundred volunteers worked to give Manual High School a face lift and ready it for re-opening. Manual High School is in a predominantly black and Mexican neighborhood with very few white residents. However, the bulk of the volunteers that worked on this school were whites. Locals are too apathetic (or perhaps possess a strong sense of entitlement which relinquishes them of personal responsibility) to pitch in to care for a school their own children attend, while they at the same time complain about the school system and poor results.

DIA's Baggage Boondoggle Still Haunting City

As recently as January, 2008, the city of Denver is still throwing money into the DIA baggage system money pit which has haunted local politicians for some 15 years, and it is still wringing its hands over installation of a permanent baggage system.

Quotes from the Rocky Mountain News' story of January 12, 2008:

The system, once touted as the most advanced in the world, had problems from the start and never worked as intended. Officials planned it as the main system to serve all airlines at DIA, but United was the only carrier that used it and then only for outbound luggage.

It was one of the reasons DIA opened 16 months behind schedule and almost $2 billion over budget. Some estimates say the system's price tag has stretched to $700 million, compared with initial projections of $250 million. The airport doesn't have exact figures but has said it will compile that data for council members.

United stopped using it in 2005 and reverted to a manual process. The airport then struck a deal to pay off $110 million that United owed on the system.

DIA is now laying plans to install a new baggage system in coming years, one that will use more conventional technology and methods.

Even to this day, the old baggage system haunts Denver.

"The news keeps getting worse," Councilman Charlie Brown said at a recent City Council meeting, referring to the fact that DIA will have to spend more money to remove part of the system. "I mean, we can't get away from this baggage system. This is unbelievable."

Airport albatross

Costs of a baggage system that never worked right:

$250 million initial projected price tag

$100 million additional construction costs

$341 million additional interest payments to try to get the system working and build a separate, manual one for other airlines

$18 million maximum for steel removal, including parts of the baggage system

$700 million estimated actual cost


Back in 1994 or so when DIA was not yet open and the city of Denver was already in damage-control mode, free public tours were offered of the airport and I was one who pounced on the opportunity to wander the place. In one of the concourses, I noticed that some signage was wrong and pointed toward things that weren't there, but the most entertaining part of that day was when in the terminal I came across the baggage test area in what is now the Frontier Airlines check-in counters. The area in front of the counter was a literal graveyard of baggage; mangled bags, torn, missing sides, wheels either torn off completely or partly ripped off, belongings such as clothing, blenders, and hair dryers lying either loose or sticking out of mangled bags, most bags were either barely holding together and those that were not were duct taped shut. Some suitcases missed zippered tops that were either a few feet away or nowhere visible at all. Some bags even had dark skid marks on them. Few bags showed no damage at all. If only I'd have taken a camera, what delights I could have recorded! About 30 of us viewed the scene, alternately laughing and shaking our heads.

DIA Propaganda Machine Rolls (Lipstick on a Pig)

Every negative story about DIA is met with a combination of denials and lies by the City and County of Denver and the nearly complete rosy-eyed journalistic ramblings of the local Denver media. One of the silly ways to offset negative news about DIA is the creation of DIA's own YouTube channel featuring videos with raving reviews about the airport, such as this one:

There are so many things about this video that any Denver resident, especially one with a memory longer than a beer commercial, could knock down in 2 seconds. The "eco-friendly" hype is mythological in the extreme; how can an airport with such a stupid fabric roof on it's terminal be heated in freezing winter temperatures such as we saw in late 2008 when the airport hit as low as -19 degrees? Imagine the energy required to keep everyone and everything under the circus tent from freezing solid!

Since the city smartly built the airport on a convergence zone, which is where warm air masses from the plains collide with cooler ones coming off the Rocky Mountains, the airport area is noted for its meteorological instability and proneness to severe thunderstorms with tornadic activity. More than once DIA has had to shut down temporarily during tornado warnings and passengers are told to hide in airport bathrooms which double as tornado shelters. Eventually, you can bet, the airport itself will be hit by a tornado. Its only a matter of time.

The airport itself was built by construction companies and financiers with close ties to local political elites; excessive prices were paid for land to people with similar connections who snatched up tracts in a hurry and made a killing; delay after delay in opening the airport due to the shoddy animated baggage system sent airport bonds spiraling into near junk bond status, and grossly high operating fees collapsed several local airlines and sent others packing, leaving United Airlines a monopoly (Denver is the largest UAL hub outside Chicago) which sent air fares skyrocketing in a city whose former airport (Stapleton International) was known for affordability and frequent "air fare wars" between carriers. Only in the past few years has Southwest Airlines been willing to fly out of DIA, after having barred the airport from its routes since the airport's debut. Continental Airlines had a hub at the old airport, but not at DIA, and that has kept fares higher.

If anyone is familiar with the way the City and County of Denver is operated in terms of its emergency and medical services, you'll know that the city are cheapskates of the highest order. Consequently, the city refuses to furnish DIA and surrounding environs with local ambulance service, instead preferring to send ambulances from the city-owned ghetto hospital just south of downtown, which is a whopping 26 miles from the airport. Consequently, after the crash of Contiental 1404, the first ambulance did not reach the scene until 33 minutes after the crash happened, and it was sent code 10, that is, non-emergency! The second ambulance arrived seven minutes after that. Generally speaking, the farther you are from downtown Denver, the shittier your ambulance service will be. You'd think with the 4th busiest airport in the US that the city would have the brains and decency to station at least a small fleet of ambulances in the DIA area, but no! Under much pressure after this crash, the city has apparently kindly stationed ONE ambulance at the airport, for use only in aircraft emergencies, leaving people in the airport itself to die, literally, as has already happened. Today a half-hour long investigative documentary aired on KMGH channel 7 titled, "33 Minutes to 34-Right." The city has previously denied repeated complaints about airport-area service and insisted that its service to DIA is "excellent." Just how stupid do they think we are? Very, apparently, and with good reason: Rocky Flats officials have flip-flopped and fed us pure quality horse shit for decades and people are still willing to live near that cursed land.

Watch the entire DIA documentary 33 Minutes to 34-Right here.

By the way, DIA's website at always says, "Security Wait Time: 5 Minutes." They're lying!
