In Delaware, They Lynch Negros

Research by: Donald Ayotte Doug Beatty Dr. Jahi Issa EShed Alston Part one Yes, I admit plagiarizing my headline from the movie, “The great Debaters,” starring Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker, and I also admit, we are far from Marshall Texas and 1935, or so I and many others had thought. This story starts in Dover Delaware on October 17, 2010. A young African American Man, a Wesley College student and star athlete from Edison, New Jersey was found hanging from a tree in an alley off of the 200 block of North Governors Ave in Dover. Charles Conley was found hanging from two belts linked together, according to his mother. Conley was a well liked intelligent young man, with apparently no reason to commit suicide. Although Conley’s friends, family and neighbors lend little credibility to the Dover Police’s ruling of suicide in Conley’s untimely and violent death, the case was never further investigated. The official police report reads:
On Sunday 10/17/10 at approximately 0730 the Dover Police Department responded to a report from a motorist driving in the alleyway, east of N. Governors Ave, that a subject was hanging from a tree. Detectives identified the victim as a 19 year-old Wesley College student from New Jersey. There is no foul play involved and detectives found information from the victim detailing his intent to harm himself. Crime/Nature: Suicide.
On December 2011, violent racial leaflets were distributed in Dover Delaware depicting a drawing of a lynching with a swastika, that contained a racial epithet quoting, “Cleaning up the streets, one ‘nigger’ at a time.” On May 12, John Clark, an African American male and local barber was found hanging from his own belt in Silver Lake park. There was no police press release or media coverage on his death. The two men were found hanging less than a quarter of a mile apart in or near Silver Lake Park had only one thing in common, they were African American. All of the friends and family questioned by local Activists, strongly repudiated the Dover City Police’s finding of suicide for Mr. Clark’s death and were in fear of speaking to the police, fearing for their lives and family’s safety. On September 21, 2012 another African American male was aggressively assaulted at Silver Lake Park near the same location as John Clark’s lynching. Henry Fordham, a local man residing in the same neighborhood as Clark, was violently assaulted with a knife by two young white assailants attempting to cut his ear and penis off, according to Fordham. Fordham also stated that his attackers bragged and confessed to the lynching of Johnny Clark from a tree by his own belt in Silver Lake Park and said the same was happening to him. Fordham had sustained cuts in the area of his ear and penis as well as ligature marks on his neck from an attempted lynching. These types of injuries have been consistent with many lynchings that have taken place in the past 100 years. Johnny Clark’s brother reported, the last people, he saw his brother with while he was alive, were the same two white males that Fordham named as his attackers. The police claim that Fordham is well known to the Dover City Police Department as a person involved with illegal narcotics. Police also have stated that they “shot holes” in the details of his story of the abduction and assault. After speaking with anonymous sources, Mr. Fordham admitted, the details of his abduction could have been a cause for violation of his probation and fudged on the details. Many of the people and sources in the neighborhood were intensely fearful of speaking of the details they knew unless they were assured of complete anonymity. Mr. Fordham escaped his attackers and ran into a neighbor’s back yard yelling and screaming for them to please call the police. When police came, Fordham identified his attackers, their addresses and vehicle, along with their first names. Nobody has yet been arrested for his assault. Officially, the Dover City Police Department maintains there is no probable cause to investigate an assault on Fordham, since they were able to “poke holes” in his story and he is known to them. Word has it on the street that the Dover City Police Department is squelching any investigations of the two lynchings and the assault and attempted lynching of Mr. Fordham because one of the assailants is reputed to be the son of a Police Sgt. Since this is a blog, I am allowed to speculate a bit and use common sense. With the three attacks I have described, there is a “modus operandi” that is very similar, as well as a complete lack of action on the part of the Dover City Police Department. Even if Mr. Fordham is known for illegal narcotics activity, is it now legal for him to become a target for the worst racial hate crime imaginable, a public lynching? When I spoke to people in Fordham’s neighborhood, I had to be introduced by Dr. Jahi Issa, an African American former History professor at DSU and a political and civil rights activist. Even then there was hesitation and fear, in their eyes, because I am a white man. I would like to add that I was treated very respectfully by everyone in the neighborhood that I was introduced to. These are some of the most heinous hate crimes committed since the civil rights movement in the 1960’s and 1970’s and I ask that the FBI step in and investigate the Dover City Police Department for this blatant cover-up and bring the perpetrator of these crimes to justice. If we allow these kinds of crimes to go unpunished, it will escalate. People have a constitutional right to live in peace, without the fear of racial reprisals.

  1. Under the 5th and 6th Amendments Eric Bodenweiser is innocent until proven guilty. Any comments made by you or anyone else to the contrary including using the alleged molestation as an excuse for the alleged victims criminal activity will be redacted in part or wholly-Moderator

  2. The same allegations were brought forth when Bodenweiser made a bid for a seat previously, by his disgruntled brother who started a website and took out ads in local newspapers.

    No, Paul Bodenweiser never accused his brother of molesting a child.

    Bodenweiser decides to run again and his brother (redacted due to complaint) starts his one man smear tactics all over again with his website.

    Why does this accusation stand, and what I wrote was redacted? Seems to me that the Moderator is a friend of Eric’s.

    The accusation does not stand it was redacted along with several other comments you and Will Rogers made- Moderator

    Redacted there is no one has been found guilty of molesting the alleged victim-Moderator

  3. So, Don, does the moderator have no credibility because he or she is not using a proper name?

    “Under the 5th and 6th Amendments Eric Bodenweiser is innocent until proven guilty. Any comments made by you or anyone else to the contrary including using the alleged molestation as an excuse for the alleged victims criminal activity will be redacted in part or wholly-Moderator”

    you have become totally irrational and your rant is not appreciated. In layman’s terms, you sir are one crazy B*s***d.

  5. Your comment was removed and will continue to be removed for the following reason at this point all that is known are allegations of abuse. You keep trying to present your point as if the alleged victims claims are true, and Bodenweiser is guilty of a crime. There has been no trial or adjudication proving the alleged victim was abused or that Bodenweiser is guilty of any crime-Moderator1

  6. Paul Bodenweiser called his brother a “pervert” and whatnot after he was arrested. Before the arrest, Paul Bodenweiser’s site was nothing more than a bunch of rantings about his father’s money.

    Clearly you lack the knowledge of how information is cached on the Internet. There are rantings (your term) by Bodenweisers brother on his site dating back to 2010 where he alleged his brother was a pervert and cited specific example-Moderator1

  7. good thing it was redacted if David Anderson keeps allowing it to happen OH HELL YEAH I have no problem taking a huge piss on his life if for no other reason that it would be worth looking into and making him pay through the nose

  8. The moderator is just as clueless as everyone else who runs this blog, and stoops to insults like “kangaroo court.”

    Meanwhile the actionable allegation that Paul Bodenweiser is “a drunk” (whatever that means) stays up.

    Hint to the anonymous “moderator”: Stating the fact that victims of molestation are more prone to crime is not actionable. It’s a statement of fact. It’s entirely possible the victim was molested by an unknown party.

    It appears that the “moderator” is simply an anonymous defender of certain viewpoints and opponent of others.

  9. hahahaha chester is posting over in the other site, ” I have posted this statistic three times at the site because people keep posting that Bodenweiser is innocent because his accuser has a criminal history.”
    neither I or anyone else has posted that bodenweiser is innocent because his accuser has a criminal record. chester keeps trying to justify the accusers criminal history is due to being abused, yet there is absolutely no proof of any abuse, other then the accusers unsubstantiated claim. as I already stated the damage has been done, guilty or not nothing will undo the social stigma associated with an accusation of child molestation.

  10. The Bodenweiser Case aside, it is true that children who are abused, physically, mentally, sexually, etc., have a higher rate of criminal behavior.

  11. Other lynchings! There have been numerous lynchings in the good ole USA over the past 6 years. Here is one for the record! But of course, Africans are doing this to themselves!

    There’s very little evidence as far as numerous lynchings go.

    Meanwhile, back in reality:

    Big black mob violence in little town: Dover, Delaware in the casino adjacent to the race track, Dover Downs. So they kicked them all out, but they did not want to leave the parking lot.
    Then another riot started: This one with crow bars and tasers and fighting and drugs and arrests.
    No videos of this one, although the Twitter stream said lots of people had their cameras rolling.
    Four arrested after weekend Dover casino riot
    At least this riot was a bit less menacing than the last riot two years ago: That time, someone pulled an AK-47.
    Dover Police News Center – Public News Releases
    The video, which was taken on September 18, 2011, depicted a large group of black males subjects gathered in the lot at approximately 0326 AM.
    Phillip Francis, BM 29, removes a rifle from a vehicle and conceals same under a jacket. Subsequent investigation by detectives confirmed def Francis’ identity and the weapon was determined to be an AK47 Type assault rifle.
    …there are other incidents in Dover outside of the Casino. Which of course is telling the state they may have to lay off hundreds of people because no one wants to visit there. Link

  12. Dr. Issa, what is your view of this: Top 100 Black Mob Violence Videos

    Because there’s actual evidence for that, unlike some of what you’re saying.

    Are you going to go preach to the verifiable and observable mobs to calm them down or are you going to try to incite their tribalism based largely on imaginary evidence that only exists in your head due to tribalism?

    Here’s a suggestion, tell different tribes to marry each other and get it on. And there you go, no more tribalism. Call me a romantic.

  13. Frank
    Somebody told me about your latest rant on DR, thanks for the publicity, you non-writing idiot. Wolfgang is disappointed that you left him out of your baseless lying diatribe; says that’s discrimination. C’mon Frankfurter (Weenie) you need to be more inclusive. The Lesbiman strikes again!
