14-Year-Old Dindu Nuffin Member Arrested – Fourteen Years Old, With Fourteen Prior Arrests…

14-Years-Old. Fourteen prior arrests. Arrested again on January 14th. The response from his Grandfather is almost as alarming as the story around his current arrest….

TAMPA (FOX 13) – Hillsborough County deputies say they nearly had to shoot a 14-year-old who was reaching into his waistband.  Deputies say that a search revealed Dallas Robinson was carrying a gun and two magazines of hollow-point bullets.

Dallas-Robinson-550x309

“This was a kid that was fully-loaded, ready to go,” said HCSO spokesman Larry McKinnon.  They also found that he has a rap sheet that goes back to when he was 10.

Just after midnight in Tampa, near the intersection of St. James and 127th Ave., a deputy stopped Robinson because his bike didn’t have a headlight.

They say that Robinson ran and that the deputy struggled with him before Robinson reached for his waistband.

“The only reason this deputy believes that this kid didn’t get the gun and shoot him was because he got the draw on him first,” McKinnon said. “Fortunately, we are not at a funeral today, either this kid’s or our law enforcement deputy’s.”

Robinson has fourteen priors starting in 2010 when he was ten.

He has faced charges of carrying a concealed firearm, armed robbery and possession of drugs.

“He needs to be in a program,” said his grandfather, who didn’t want us to identify him.

The grandfather says their family has no idea why the juvenile justice system has let Robinson go.

As recently as 11 days ago, they say he was brought home after a stint in a juvenile assessment center for violating probation for a previous weapons charge.

They don’t come back and check on the boy,” said the grandfather. “Somebody comes out one time, as soon as they leave, he leaves.” (read more)

What exactly is the Grandpa saying there?  Who is this “they” he is dependent upon?  Wow.  Sounds like the family has become so dependent on government to solve their life issues – they now blame the government for a lack of oversight upon their behavior.   That’s almost as concerning as a 14-year-old with 14 prior arrests….

    The only program for a not so baby thug like this is lock him up and throw away the key. 14 priors going back to age 10 and he was gonna draw on LEO. They drew first, thank you. It is the govt’s fault and then of course, ours. I think not, gramps. Look in the mirror and where were your kids??

    There is no program that can help a punk like this. A POS like this almost killed one of my friends a long time ago. At 10, he should have had a clue. At 14, he knows better.

      I teach in this area. This kid is not the only one. Things are getting worse. District is losing good teachers because we are just told to pass them on. The district classifies them so their poor scores do not cause them to fail. Its all in the classification codes. Our juvenile delinquent schools are full and a way for the main school to keep credit for the kid financially, yet not accept the failing state exam scores. The next teachers get uneducated and unteachable kids with no intention of learning. No parent involvement. Blame is put on them money other schools get. Teachers get extra money for going into the poverty stricken schools, but what makes the real difference in the schools is not the dollars, its the parental involvement. It is not safe to teach and is no longer rewarding for most of us. Schools are filled with the younger teachers, whom are not lasting either.

        No parental involvement. Or worse, I suppose, is parental involvement in the form of role modeling lack of morals, lack of values, lack of education, lack of work ethic, and criminal behavior.

    Reminds me of Brinsley’s (the one who executed two NYPD policemen last month) sister. In an interview after the shootings, she blamed the system for letting him out:
    from http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/12/22/cop-killers-family-ismaaiyl-brinsley-had-troubles-didnt-get-help-he-needed/

    “He has 15 prior arrests in Georgia for assorted crimes — misdemeanor assault, shoplifting, grand larceny and gun possession,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.

    Ismaaiyl Brinsley was also arrested four times in Ohio, Langford reported. His family described him as an angry, troubled man whose life had spiraled out of control.

    “If he got arrested this many times why wouldn’t they help him out? They kept releasing him into the streets. So, isn’t that a problem that the justice system should be asking? Not us,” Jalaa’a said.


    ….So it was the system’s fault for letting him out, yet if the system kept him in, that would be an issue as well so… the system is either rigged to incarcerate OR the system is rigged to refuse to help. Sigh.

      We need to revamp our entire justice system. juvenile justice should cover ONLY age specific things like truancy curfew, and such like. If its a crime for an adult to do, it should be handled by the adult court system.
      As for that court system, any one who is a first time felon, once convicted, should receive a minimum of 20 lashes. It should be administered by the parent, and if the parent does not give them a serious whipping, whip the parent as well.
      After a second conviction, castrate them. get the defective genes out of the pool. If we made it mandatory, it would not take long for this kind of crowd to wake up and fly right.
      Strike three, You Are OUT! If some one is so determined to not conform to the norms of society, They need to perish. Oh, and if the Eewroweenies want to protest, we deport the little tyrant to what ever country screams first or loudest, and let them decide which is worse, our juvies, or their splodydopes.

      In any given case, we can’t say, but generally this sort of behavior is genetically-based: a violent propensity due to a particular monoamine oxidase allele coupled with an IQ lower than 100. That is the cat that the powers-that-be want to keep in the bag. If the white population were really informed of all the scientific work (see P. Rushton’s) about documented racial differences and its implications for maintaining Western Civilization, then the BGI would be washed from the public arena and rational policies would be instituted to deal with black dysfunction. Everyone should do his own survey of the published research on this topic.

          So, either science is “settled” or not, based upon politics? Last Democrat, put down the crack pipe.

          Frankly, answer me this: what IS racism?
          Is racism a word with concrete definition, or is it a word that can be used to cover whatever is convenient?

          What, exactly, in the post you complain about is “racist”? Can facts be “racist” in and of themselves? Can inanimate objects be racist? Can states or conditions of matter be “racist”? (is the fact that the sky is blue some form of structural racism of the universe?).

          If what the data set and facts point to leads to a solution that ameliorates the effects of the conditions stated, is a “cure” then “racist”?

          Would it be or not be in the public interest to have a less violent and more amenable population that was less toxic and more pleasant to one another and themselves?

          It is equally plausible from your argument that it is YOU who seek to keep people down by shutting down rational scientific inquiry (your “racist” claim)? What motive could you have in such effort (perhaps to do an Alinsky and “rub raw the sore of discontent”)?

          What next, is classic physics to be deemed “racist” because the laws of gravity “keep people down”? If the science is wrong, it will be contested in a peer reviewed manner and a more suitable hypothesis will emerge.

        This theory is as stupid as the black psychiatrist I heard who proclaimed that whites were genetically designed to hate blacks. You simply can’t draw conclusions about race based on IQ tests. I saw a series of videos by John Taylor Gatto, who decided to educate black ghetto kids the same way as kids that go to elite prep schools, and guess what? They learned just as fast, and did just as well. But if you make assumptions about IQ and base your methodologies on those assumptions, it is a self-fulfilling prophesy. You get an undereducated population of very upset students who have been boxed in by someone else’s stupidity.

          Really? I am a big follower of John Taylor Gatto, and none of his work that I am familiar with in any way supports your claim. Nothing.

          And yes, you can draw conclusions about race and IQ tests, as well as make other inferences about IQ. The SAT in part is a type of IQ test and has shown to be a valid predictor of future academic success based on performance on the SAT. The ASVAB was also designed to be a predictor of success in various military occupational fields, including its use as a screening tool for those who lack the ability to function at the minimal level required of an increasingly technologically based professional military.

          Many of the Progressive rebuttals of the body of work investigating the intersection of race, IQ, inheritable genetic traits, etc is from the world of “social sciences” which are not “sciences” at all, but philosophical belief systems masquerading as “science”. The work of Watson (who was a pioneer in the discovery of DNA) and Rushton has been peer reviewed and found valid. However, it challenges the emotional orthodoxy of the Left that we are all “equal” and any differences in ability, motivation, social and economic success can be found in the roots of white oppression, colonialism, bigotry, etc. This complete garbage. The reason I am not a highly skilled, highly compensated NBA player is not because of any bigotry and systemic bias – it’s because I am short, lack good hand to eye coordination and didn’t have the drive or desire to practice the same skills set for hours on end, years on end. We all have different levels of ability, skills and motivation. Chalking that up to “systemic bias” is naive and uneducated.

          Many of the great scientists throughout history were afraid to publish or share their work because of the heavy-handed oppression of those in political control. Look up the history of Copernicus and Galileo and what they endured for challenging the “settled” belief system of the time. Nothing has changed. Scientists who seek truth experience the same heavy-handed threats. This time, instead of challenging the teachings of the Church, those who challenge the teachings of the Progressives with respect to race, IQ and criminality are singled out for punishment, poverty and banishment.

          It’s unacceptable.

Du Bois won, and black society lost. If Carver had won there never would have been LBJ’s Great Society.

      The problem with “reform school” (showing my age, here) is that it serves mainly as an advanced course in criminal science. That’s also what prison does these days.

      So, how did we get to this point? What events led us here? In my humble, non-academic opinion, it started with The Great Society and was exacerbated by the Free Love 60s. Next, we added no-fault divorce, which along with welfare eligibility rules, pretty much killed off the nuclear family. Then, we mix in public housing, more generous welfare and subsidizing. The schools stopped teaching “civics” and “ethics” and stopped prayer and corporal punishment. Finally, we throw in rap music and its romanticizing of “street culture” (the antithesis of the nuclear family), criminality, murder and retaliation. Stir that toxic brew with the BGI, the CBC, the Poverty PImps®, Øbama/Holder/Sharpton/DeBlasio and the MSM’s and society’s political correctness…. and we have an epidemic of racial violence that everyone is afraid to confront.

        Ain’t gona help per se. Certain policies based on the commie-inspired attitude about each and all being equal in every possible way/shape/form have to be dropped, just like we dropped the alcohol ban. I do mean copycatting the technofascists of Singapore a bit. See, the clan of mr. Lee has come up with an idea to treat people differently in the child support part of the welfare system. Children, as per mr. Lee’s evil fascist consultants, are of variable desirability for the rest of the society. A child of a welfare mom with 14 siblings by 5 different “dads” of whom 4 are serving the terms from their rap sheets is deemed “undesired”, in that he or she is very likely to be a burden for the society — by being an obamason or a welfare queen. Likewise, a child born to a complete heterosexual family whereby both parents are below 40 and have at least a bachelor’s degree is deemed “desired” in that he or she is likely to become a normal law-abiding taxpaying member of the society in future. Everyone is eligible for 1 child — but then the support for the “undesired” children drops — I’d say not all the way I’d like — as I’d like “a shot of norplant in exchange for any welfare” type of thing for certain groups, but it does drop; while the support, esp. in the form of tax brakes, increases for the parents of the socially desired children when they beget more. Welfare queens like those satirized in this youtube video

        simply should not be out there (unlike, say, taxpaying and law-abiding people with a hobby of drawing cartoons that slander the prophet).

        That said, I am increasingly gloomy about the prospective of any society with unrestricted universal voting rights — whereby the imbeciles vote, the substance abusers vote, the felons vote, and bunches of totally careless people vote without a slightest trace of understanding of what is on the vote, what rights and duties are being transferred, what it is that the person trying to get elected has to be doing de-jure and what it is that the said person can and cannot do de-jure while in office. In these bound-for-disaster societies, somehow a person can be stripped off his or her parenthood rights, or driving license, a pilot’s license or a gun permit — but never a holy and sacred fate-deciding power to vote. However, most developed societies on Earth these days are just like that — ours inclusive. Any alternative or deviation from this sort of setup is deemed “fascist”. The insanity has to stop and this is “the change” that we need.

      Would like to know what his “issues” were with his parents. Was he at the Children’s Home at 13 because he was in foster care? Maybe mental illness runs in the family. Were his parents still together? Still impressive that he became a lawyer, even with a troubled background. Still, significant trauma in childhood, can rewire the brain making it more prone to the effects of stress and susceptible to depression and other mental illnesses.

      There has been more investigation on what are called Adverse Childhood Experiences, and the long-term mental and emotional toll they take on children well into their adult years. These ACE’s are

      Emotional abuse
      Parental separation
      Substance abuse by household member
      Physical abuse
      Witness to Domestic Violence
      Household member with mental illness
      Sexual abuse
      Neglect
      Incarceration of Household member

      https://acestoohigh.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/hiddencrisis_report_10141.pdf

      These don’t turn people into criminals but they definitely can have an effect on adult emotional stability. The experts recommend “a total change in the culture,” by which they mean, more stable loving families with good character. Obvious, but this shooter’s mental unraveling as an adult may have been incited years ago by a dysfunctional childhood. The point is what we know now, that we haven’t really known before is that extreme childhood stress rewires the brain and can make it emotionally fragile. The person relies on a very dysfunctional brain to inform him of legitimate choices.”

    Nuffin new ’bout this (couldn’t resist). I’ve mentioned before that young criminals picked up in New Orleans on a terminal violent crime (one that actually gets them sent to big-boy prison) frequently have rap sheets with dozens of misdemeanor and felony arrests on them – and that’s not including the stuff on the juvi records. Most of these arrests are refused for charges by the DA’s office and those few that are prosecuted usually end with some slap-on-the-hand punishment. A mass murder, drive-by where they’ve hosed down some grade school or just POd some politician usually results in a big press flap followed by some judge facing reelection acting judicious. It became so rote that the press just stopped reporting it, the public just expecting it.
    One of the ways to deal with this is to sit in court during these trials and take notes. As you gather names/incidents you can then take them to a city/county ‘council’ meeting and have the boat anchors sitting on the podium address the question of how they’re going to bring fire upon the courts for letting proven violent criminals-in-training back out on the streets. Every now and then the process yields results – even if it;s only an increased police presence following you around.

    I hope the cop didn’t assume additional risk to his own life to get a murderous armed thug back out on the street in a few years to kill somebody else.

  19. Any semblance of responsibility and accountability completely gone.

    I literally want to pull my hair out when I hear that “there isn’t a program for this” or “this isn’t my/his/her fault”. Look, I grew up in a POOR inner city neighborhood, all mixed up – whites, blacks, native americans, you name it. I was an only kid, and my mother raised me on her own. Saw my Dad here and there on the weekends, but he was out in Suburbia and didn’t have much time for “inner city problems”.

    I had kids steal my bike. I had kids beat me up. I started smoking cigs when I was 14, and got into some minor trouble (knocking over garbage cans in the alley, etc.). At some point, I took a look around and said “Wow, I don’t want to live like this when I grow up.” I started with asking for help at school — “I want to go to college, how do I go about this test I have to take and this and that” and then I looked up stuff in the front of the PHONE BOOK for crying out loud! Community resources. Then I got myself a job at McD’s. I still got in minor trouble here or there, but I took a look around and did everything I could to get the hell out of there.

    Why can’t others do that as well? I am convinced it is a cultural “thing”.

    On one hand we have progressives who think it is OK because they are “owed” something, and on the other hand, you have civilized people who are trying to live their lives without FEAR of one of these thugs coming after us.

    I think Barry may well still get his race war yet.

      I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
      ― Benjamin Franklin

        I like that. Poverty is a replicating cycle that is only reinforced by our lenient laws and numerous give aways. Punish unwed mothers who don’t have jobs. Reward them for working by assisting with child day care so they can work. Punish sperm donors by mandatory dna testing and give the donor the choice of working community service or finding a job and contributing to the kid he made. No one gets a free ride.

        I think we could do a sort of WPA program to get these thugs off the street and their welfare queens and sperm donors. They all work or are on the street. No more section 8, food stamps, utility assistance. Take the social safety net out of the hands of the govt. and give it back to faith based initiatives and by the way…make socialism/communism part of that as well. If they operate as a “do good” organization, they are required to provide for the poor.

        Just thoughts along a be responsible for yourself meme. If we make it unappealing to churn out kids that the rest of us pay for in taxes and crime, it will stop. No money to be made from spreading your legs. You’re too busy working at either an entry level job or a community work project to do crime. And criminals are prosecuted even if they are juveniles. Some of these kids have rap sheets that rival an adult and haven’t done squat penance or whatever for any of it. Make the criminals pay restitution either with money or money taken from forced work.

        Sure it’s draconian, but we’ve reached a point of being over run by an underclass of leeches. It’s either that or ship the whole lot of them off to a distant country and let them rot. Give the US back to the people who cherish what it stands for. And that includes all the lazy assed politicians who promote crime and communism.

        I am all for giving someone a helping hand when they find themselves in a bad situation. However, that does not mean a lifetime of indolence funded by stealing from other people’s hard earned wages.

        My FIL has a rent-controlled tenant in his apartment building in NYC. She pays next to nothing for her apartment, as mandated by law. He gets no supplement to bridge the gap between what she pays and what the market rent for his property is. Yet, his expenses and his lost opportunity cost of his investment doesn’t go away. To add further salt to this wound, this lazy piece of garbage birthed two sons as a (minority) single mother, and both are in jail. She doesn’t work, but collects “Social Security Disability” and a myriad of other handouts. While she goes on forever about being “disabled”, she has no problem running up and down the stairs of the apartment complex toting one or more of her many grandbaby sprogs or going to Zumba at her church when not participating in “advocacy” marches. Etc. She is exactly the type of parasite I resent that Progressive ideology has wrought.

        ADD: I should add that I also have no issue with funding those who truly can not support themselves. Charity for the defenseless is part of the western ethos. However, there is a huge difference between someone who is truly physically disabled and needs our compassion and help and someone who games the system to steal from the genuinely disabled.

    This is what pisses me off… this “kid” has a record of various crimes all the way back to when he was just 10 years old…. was good old Mommy there with him during these crimes??? She must have been… else should she not have received a visit like this woman did???

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jan/15/maryland-couple-investigated-for-letting-children-/

    Apparently in Maryland you cannot be outside alone as a 10 year old not breaking any laws without Child Protective Services getting involved, but this kids parent isn’t held accountable when her unsupervised 10 year old ends up in Police custody???

      The answer is “no”. Someone in the extended family is “watching” him. But it’s the streets that are raising him. Look up the term “BG” and “Baby Gangsta”. Small children routinely hold drugs for dealers (hand-to-hand is long gone) and take them to the buyer after the deal has been made. Baby Gs also hold guns for older Gs, and in some cases, they now have them doing smash-and-grab robberies. Why? An adolescent, teen or adult gets increasingly more charges on them, while a child gets almost nothing. It shocks you and me, but it’s a fact of “street life” going all the way up to their parents.

    Oh Grandpa. And since you may be 40 or so it feels odd to call you that but, Grandpa, between the Federal, state and local government, charities, social programs and churches, parents of boys like your grandson do not have to work to provide housing, clothes, medical or dental care, recreation or enrichment. Essentially all mama needs to do is KNOW where her kids are and who they’re with. Is that too much to expect from a sentient being? I mean dogs can do it even with a litter of 12.

      The sad reality is that this boy’s life has no chance of mattering in any meaningful way. He’s too far gone at 14. And I’d dare say Mike Brown was also too far gone to be redeemable. Probably Trayvon as well. Miracles do happen, but not often, which is what makes them miracles. By the time a boy from the hood has a long rap sheet or reaches his mid-teens, it’s too late. To assume the thugs and assorted criminals being killed while committing a crime could’ve made something of themselves had they lived, is mostly pure fantasy. Until black lives begin to matter to blacks, nothing will change.

    I live in the Tampa Bay area and heard this story on the way to work yesterday, but apparently it isn’t worthy enough to rate a mention in the “Tampa Bay Times” newspaper.

    The bad part is these guys are moving into the suburbs. Tampa is rebuilding its blighted areas and closing public housing…and providing Section 8 vouchers to go rent houses in the ‘burbs. Once decent neighborhoods now have these ‘utes walking around in the middle of the night. And the school ratings have already dropped.
