America’s Non-Integrating Gap

Chirol of Coming Anarchy has done great work on domestic application of the work of Thomas P.M. Barnett (“Pentagon’s New Map (PNM) Theory”). In three now-famous posts

Barnett himself (commenting on an excellent article in Reason) note that caboose breaking, “voting more populist candidates into office in democracies (e.g., India’s Congress Party) to political unrest and violent protest in authoritarian states,” “is basically when politicians/leaders realize and fear/anticipate/respond to unrest from disconnected populations.”

An early American attempt at caboose-breaking the country’s Gap was the Great Society, succeeding in driving up Gap unemployment and fatherlessness to record highs. Another attempt, affirmative action, was nearly a textbook case of how to teach racial resentment and divisiveness.

Now that another wave of agitprop is subsiding – a failed lynching in North Carolina and a “high-techone on the air. – one might except a second wave of this. Obvious possibilities might include zero-sum transfers of wealth, property, and position (a Jackson / Sharpton plan). However, considering that the most popular black candidate yet produced in America is the descendant of slave-owners but not American slaves, the political possibility of that seems unlikely. Another, different, take woudl be attempt to overload America’s gap with feedback in the hope of forcing a deeper change. Yet inciting riots is dangerous, and not the risk.

That takes us to the most obvious form of Gap-shrinking that can be expected in the near-future in America: nothing. Those who power makes them important feel outrage must less than those who are powerless, and thus little can be gained from Imus or Mangum agitprop. Life will continue, with those in America’s core living good lives, and those in America’s gap not.

Crystal Gail Mangum and Mike Nifong

Last year, for the second time in her life, Crystal Gail Mangum claimed to have been raped by three men. For the second time, there was no trial. But for the first time, media attention encouraged the North Caroline Attorney-General Roy Cooper to say the word: “innocent.”


Inmate Intake: MANGUM, CRYSTAL GAIL

Ms Mangum’s false accusation was horribly compounded by the gross incompetence, negligence, and capricious maliciousness of Durham North Carolina prosecutor, Mike Nifong. My fellow college students — indeed, all Americans — hope that the surest measures are taken against Mike Nifong so that justice may be served.

Hopefully, Jesse Jackson, who said that “his organization will pay the Duke scandal accuser’s tuition regardless of whether she’s telling the truth or not,” will doubtless comment soon.

Crystal Gail Mangum and the Need for Online Sexual Predator Databases

Imagine a sexual predator attacks a victim. Then steals a car. Then drives under the influence. Then attempts to flee from police. Then attacks a police officer with a deadly weapon. Imagine that predator was held with a $75,000 bail.

Then imagine that sexual predator was only charged with misdemeanors.

Then imagine, years later, new victims accuse the predator of a sexual assault. And imagine if they had no knowledge before hand of the predator’s history.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know about these people before you move next door to them? Or send your child to work for them? Or entrust anything to them?


As previously reported on Brain Terminal, Dilby, Free Republic, Hugo Schwyzer, Redmen, Stand Your Ground, and WRAL (a local CBS and CNN affiliate), the name of the woman who accused the Duke Lacrosse team members of rape is Crystal Gail Mangum.

Ultimately, we have no way of knowing whether or not Crystal is telling the truth in her recent allegations. Though she is a cuckoldress and a criminal, it is true that cuckoldresses and criminals can find their own rights violated. In America, we have a good if somewhat political criminal justice system, and we can hope that justice eventually is served.

Nonetheless, with a record like this:

A day’s events summarized by WRAL (CBS/CNN) as:

The severity of the allegations raises questions about each individual involved in the events that transpired on March 13 and March 14, including the alleged victim.

New information about the victim has been divulged, concerning charges arising from an incident that occurred several years ago. According to a 2002 police report, the woman, currently a 27-year-old student at North Carolina Central University, gave a taxi driver a lap dance at a Durham strip club. Subsequently, according to the report, she stole the man’s car and led deputies on a high-speed chase that ended in Wake County.

Apparently, the deputy thought the chase was over when the woman turned down a dead-end road near Brier Creek, but instead she tried to run over him, according to the police report.

Additional information notes that her blood-alcohol level registered at more than twice the legal limit.

Why did her employer, Bunnyhole Entertainment, entrust her with her position? Why were her clients not informed of her past?

We would want the same for teachers, for police officers — even for politicians. So why not here? Why not now?

This sad affair could have been avoided if sexually-oriented criminals, like and , were flagged in easily searchable online public databases.

But they’re not. Pity.
