It has been over two years since 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson went to the Lowndes County High gym around 1 p.m. As evidence indicated, Johnson climbed up on top of a stack of gym mats to reach for shoes he’d left behind – he fell head first into the rolled up mats, became stuck, and died as a result of positional asphyxia.
However, that determination didn’t sit well with the family of Kendrick Johnson, nor did an “accidental death” fit with the narrative needed by the law firm of Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump in order to get the customary wrongful death lawsuits’ off the ground.
What the family of Kendrick Johnson most likely didn’t know was for Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump the timing of January 2013 was not the best.
January 2013, for the professional race-baiting antagonists, was a time of consternation, trepidation and worry. January, 2013 was a time when the pre-trial discoveries for the case against George Zimmerman were taking place.
Both Parks and Crump were facing a potentially devastating reveal to the rest of the world. Their fabricated construct of witness #8, the mysterious “Dee Dee” ear-witness to the Trayvon Martin shooting, was coming unraveled.
George Zimmerman defense attorneys Don West and Mark O’Mara were honing in to the deception – there was no: “16-year-old, minor child, devastated puppy love interest” who “Trayvon knew since Kindergarten” and was “so distraught she was hospitalized on the weekend of Trayvon’s funeral”. It was all a lie.
In January 2013, those lies were now in the discovery phase of criminal investigation; and the entirety of the Probable Cause Affidavit -which was constructed by prosecuting attorney Angela Corey- was contingent upon keeping those lies hidden from the disinfectant of sunlight.
Eventually the house of cards came falling down when the ruse was exposed during trial. A 19-year-old witness #8, Rachel Jeantel, walked into court and the admissions began: • She wasn’t a minor on February 26th 2012 • she only just met Trayvon two weeks earlier at her 18th birthday party • she was never hospitalized • and she never went to the funeral because she barely knew him.
As for being an “ear-witness“, well, that collapsed immediately following her admission that she never wrote the statement sold by Parks and Crump as evidence, and worse yet she couldn’t even read it – and signed something she knew nothing about.
What didn’t come out in court, because Mark O’Mara withheld it worried it would be too disconcerting for a public to absorb, was that Prosecutors Angela Corey, Bernie De La Rionda, and their investigators knew the deception in April 2012 and intentionally did not ask for identification from the person, Jeantel, from whom they took an “official statement”.
Their reasoning: so the state team could carry plausible deniability and protection from malicious prosecution claims. In essence the State of Florida chose a path of willful blindness as the easiest to retain the false case.
But the parents of Kendrick Johnson probably had no way to know this stuff, and given the publicity of the case two high-profile Black Grievance Industry advocates, Parks and Crump, most likely sounded like a good team to request assistance from.
From the perspective of Parks and Crump, their financial scheme to use wrongful death lawsuits to extort the City of Sanford, the Sanford Police Department and the various insurance companies therein, was quickly collapsing under the reality of a false construct soon to be revealed.
Their only successful endeavor was a singular Home Owners Association (HOA) insurance policy who determined it was easier to pay-off the extortion than to fight the collective BGI in court.
As Parks and Crump recognized their scheme team narrative was struggling, Georgia’s Kendrick Johnson case most likely seemed like a good alternate source of revenue given the collapse of their case in Florida.
But the problem for Parks and Crump is the same problem that plagues their general enterprise and business model. So long as whomever they accuse stands upright and pushes back, eventually the false BGI claims run smack into the reality of no justifiable accuracy surrounding their cause.
This ultimately is what happened with the Kendrick Johnson case; there simply was no “there” there.
However, as customary to a team who are skilled at using deception to advance their accusations, Parks and Crump just deployed the ‘other strategy’.
The “other strategy” involves working up a social media campaign to create anxiety against those who are blocking them from the financial reward sought as the origin of their endeavors. So immediately Parks and Crump used their old playbook and began to call for the Social Justice crowd to create an alternate version of events, evidence and even reality.
Using their race-defined foot soldiers, mostly college aged students and social justice types, and combining the grievance methods of the AME church network in conjunction with cultural advocates like Russell Simmons et al, Parks and Crump begin to formulate a strategy -to benefit from Kendrick Johnson- DESPITE the reality.
Unfortunately, much like George Zimmerman, this strategy needs perpetrators who they can identify as the enemy. The anger of the social-justice types always works better when there is an identified enemy to target. In the Kendrick Johnson case Parks and Crump needed to identify someone, anyone, whom they can accuse of being the enemy.
Parks and Crump selected two other Lowdes County High School students to be the fictional perpetrators of a manufactured crime against Kendrick Johnson.
They selected Brian Bell and his older brother Branden Bell to be the suspects in their manufacture of a murder case. This, despite there being absolutely no evidence of their involvement, AND airtight alibies including being hundreds of miles away at the time.
[…] “Witnesses say, and video shows, Brian Bell was in class across campus at the time Johnson would have been killed. Branden Bell was with the wrestling team on a trip to Macon, 153 miles away”… (link)
It all sounds ridiculous, until you understand the history of how both Parks and Crump have gotten away with manufacturing claims out of thin air, and then enlisting their ideological compatriots in selling the wild and patently ridiculous.
And that’s exactly what’s happened, only this time with terrible consequences toward the subjects, and their family, who find themselves the victims of the latest scheme.
Earlier this month: […] Florida State declined to offer three-star linebacker Brian Bell an official scholarship despite a more than year-long commitment to the Lowndes High School (Georgia) star. This after Bell was named in a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit by the parents of former classmate Kendrick Johnson, who was found dead in the Lowndes gymnasium in 2013.
FSU alerted Bell of its decision last week, according to Lowndes High School coach Randy McPherson.
“Last Wednesday morning, coach Jimbo Fisher told me that the FSU athletic director and the president would not let him give Brian Bell a scholarship,” McPherson said in a statement released to the Valdosta Daily Times. “We went to meet with the FSU president the next day. The next morning, Jimbo called me and told me that they still were not going to let him give Brian a scholarship.”
The lawsuit blames Bell and 37 others, including his father, for the mysterious death of Johnson. Authorities ruled the death accidental after the 17-year-old was found between rolled-up wrestling mats. Bell was never charged or considered as a suspect, Lowndes County Sheriff Lt. Stryde Jones said.
But when social media became abuzz with news of the lawsuit, Florida State’s commitment to Bell came under considerable heat. Ultimately, the Seminoles backed off. (read more)
We said at the end of the George Zimmerman trial that despite Zimmerman being found not guilty justice was not, and would not, be served in the case because the ruse that is Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump was not exposed.
This reality was the reason for our unwillingness to praise Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara. O’Mara made a decision, a selfish decision, to avoid exposing the false construct of the claim against his client.
A fearful O’Mara tap-danced through the minefield laid by the Black Grievance Industry, specifically Parks and Crump, because O’Mara wanted to protect his own place at the trough at the other side. O’Mara’s CNN contract shortly thereafter solidified his intent.
However, as predicted, the Kendrick Johnson case is an outcome of not stopping the absurd behavior of both Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump in 2013, in its tracks.
Now, in 2015, again as predicted, there are more victims, more destroyed lives, reoccurring as a direct consequence of allowing these insufferably false grievance claims.
The Orlando Sentinel has more on the falsely accused Brian Bell STORY HERE (non-paywall version HERE), and no-one has followed the Kendrick Johnson case as closely as Re-NewsIt STORY HERE – and EXTENSIVE HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS HERE.
I would recommend everyone become familiar with all the outlines; because as we have evidenced in the Ferguson Case against Officer Darren Wilson, until Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump are called to task in front of a judge – they will simply continue to move shop seeking the next opportunity for financial benefit.
