Georgetown professor culls the herd!

FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021

Anthropological learnings: For starters, we'll tell you this—Kristin Henning isn't some crazy kid.

Henning is The Blume Professor of Law at Georgetown Law School. She's also Special Advisor to the Dean on Community and Justice and Director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Initiative.

She got her undergraduate degree at Duke. She received her law degree from Yale in 1995.  If only on the basis of age, she isn't some crazy kid.

It's also true that Henning has written an essay at Slate. Her article appears today beneath these dual headlines:

Police Have Killed at Least Five Children in the Past Month Alone
When will it stop?

Professor Henning probably didn't write those headlines. That said, her essay starts like this:

HENNING (4/23/21): Minutes before the jury delivered their verdict convicting a former Minneapolis police officer for the murder of George Floyd, another police officer in Columbus, Ohio shot and killed 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Ma’Kahia joins Adam Toledo (13), Anthony Thompson (17), Iremamber Sykap (16), and Anthony Bernal Cano (17) on the list of children who have been killed by the police since the new year began, which includes at least five in the past month alone. Add to that the dozens of children who have been killed by police in the last decade and we have reason to be concerned about the sanctity of American childhood.

"We have reason to be concerned about the sanctity of American childhood?" We'd be inclined to call that the understatement of the year.

Adam Toledo, age 13, was on the streets with an apparent gang member at 3 A.M. when he was shot and killed. 

To appearances, Ma’Khia Bryant was about to stab someone with whom she was in a dispute. 

Anthony Thompson was shot and killed inside a Knoxville high school which has experienced an ungodly wave of gun violence in the past year, even before police were called to the scene on the day he was shot and killed.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post has spilled with headlines of late about the 12-year-old boy who was arrested for shooting the 13-year-old boy, but also about the pair of girls, 13 and 15, who were arrested and charged with felony murder in the death of a man whose car they carjacked through use of a stun gun.

These are all horrible stories about kids who seem to have been swallowed up by the ugly violence of the culture which surrounded them and which suffuses our repulsive "entertainment" industry. In these and in many other cases, we'd say the sanctity of childhood was under assault long before the police showed up.

Henning's subsequent comments about the shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant strike us as amazingly silly, but that has been the reliable norm in the past few days. We write today to call attention to the list of children she has compiled:

In short, here we go with the culling again! 

Henning lists five children who have been shot and killed by police officers this year. She seems to be defining "childhood" as age 17 or below. All five of the names she cites appear at the Washington Post's Fatal Force web site in the "Under 18" age group.

She claims to be upset about this. And yet, she omits these other names which appear in the Fatal Force listing:

Names the professor culled from the herd:
Peyton Ham, 16
Judson Albahm, 17
Farrah Rauch, 17

Peyton Ham was shot and killed just last week, just 50 miles from D.C.!

What explains the culling of those names? We'll offer a very strong guess:

According to the Fatal Force site, eight people under age 18 have been shot and killed by police officers so far this year.

The three children Henning omits are the three children who are "white." The five children whose names she lists are, according to the Post, two "black" kids, two Hispanic kids, and one kid "of Asian heritage."

She names the names of those five kids; the "white" kids had to go. It's hard to believe that anyone would ever behave in this truly remarkable way, but at present almost everyone is!

According to this Georgetown scholar, we have reason to be concerned about "the sanctity of American childhood." How about the sanctity of basic human values? How about the sanctity of everything people like the professor have always said they believe?

Why would Slate post an essay like this? We can't answer that question.

Does Georgetown know that its professors perform such acts of cleansing when they fashion their lists? We can't answer that either.

Regarding the gruesome strangeness of the culling this scholar performed, anthropologists tell us us this:

This is the way our brains are wired. Also, they always have been!

One small tiny point: The police officer chasing Adam Toledo that night would have had no apparent way to know how old he was.

  2. "swallowed up by the ugly violence of the culture which surrounded them and which suffuses our repulsive "entertainment" industry"

    Numerous studies have found no causal link between entertainment, including video games, comic books, movies and similar media, and teen violence. The directionality of any association goes the opposite direction -- kids who are prone to violence are attracted to violent media but the media is not causing their violence.

    But why should a former teacher be familiar with such studies?

    3. Anon 3:48 PM is wrong.

      https://www.childrenandscreens.com/findings/violent-content/

      Science has provided us the answer to this question. Over the past six decades or so, hundreds of research studies have been conducted on this topic. Experimental studies have shown that exposure to media violence causes people to behave more aggressively immediately afterward. Field experiments have produced similar effects in natural settings with realistic measures of aggression. The effects can be long lasting too. Numerous longitudinal studies show that exposure to violent media as a child predicts aggressive and violent behavior many years later as an adult. Although there is never complete consensus in any scientific field, the evidence is so convincing that dozens of major scientific and medical organizations have issued statements about the harmful effects of exposure to violent media.

      Delete
    4. This is more complex than you are suggesting. It only predicts aggressive and violent behavior for those kids already more aggressive. They are a subset of all kids and they are enough to carry the small effect noted. For kids who are not presently aggressive, it doesn't predict future aggressiveness. The direction of the causality is from the kid, not from the media. Since it is unethical to conduct experiments on this, the studies are correlational. That means you need to use a technique like structural equation modeling to determine directionality. When they do that, the data suggests that the already aggressive kids are affected by the media, but not all kids.

      They have been issuing warnings about violent media forever, since the advent of movies and especially comic books. The situation with video gaming is no different. The one thing that playing video games does do is train kids in how to shoot weapons.

  3. From Science Daily:

    "Contrary to popular perception, a new study finds that youth violence is declining -- and at noteworthy rates. Between 2002 and 2014, researchers found a 29 percent decrease in the relative proportion of young people involved in violence in the United States. The study also reveals a persistent pattern of racial and ethnic disparities in youth violence."

    So, there is a reason to focus on violence among minority teens and not so much on white teens, for whom violence continues to steadily decline.

    But why should a former teacher be familiar with such studies?

    1. Simple, because the writing he is discussing does not draw such a distinction. Did you get lost or perhaps you are criticizing Henning?

      Delete
    2. Somerby draws the distinction. He complains because all the names of recent dead white children were not mentioned.

      The distinction is drawn by the omission of those names -- the lawyer is discussing minority deaths. Somerby thinks she should focus on all deaths. My point is that white children do not have the same problems as minority children do. I am arguing that it is appropriate to leave out those names because Henning is focusing on different problems.

      No, I am not criticizing Henning, I am defending her choice to leave out the white names. No, I did not get lost.

  4. "Henning's subsequent comments about the shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant strike us as amazingly silly, but that has been the reliable norm in the past few days."

    If Somerby doesn't know that violence is not caused by entertainment, and he doesn't know that violence among white teens has been steadily declining, on what basis can he decide that any expert's statements about teen violence are "amazingly silly"?

    ReplyDelete
  5. "Does Georgetown know that its professors perform such acts of cleansing when they fashion their lists? "

    Here, Somerby indulges in some ugly propagandistic use of language. First, the word "culling" is usually associated with the phrase "culling the herd" which means cutting out some cattle and sending them to market, or the evolutionary culling of the weakest by natural forces and predators. It is a totally inappropriate word to be used to talk about dead children, because of these prior associations. Then he uses the word "cleansing", which does not mean making something clean but rather refers to ethnic cleansing in which a minority is targeted for removal or murder as part of a genocide. Hitler did this when he moved non-Germans out of German territories in the 3rd Reich, and there are other examples in history. The use of that term to selectively include names of dead children on a list, is highly offensive, especially when aimed at a woman who has dedicated her career to helping children in trouble due to teen violence and other legal problems.

    This is the kind of language that puts a thumb and fist on the scales. It is propagandistic language because it relies on evoking emotional responses that have nothing to do with facts or arguments. And his targeting of that language toward a person who is not only a member of a racial minority, but works to help children, if outrageous!

    If there were any doubts about Somerby's bigotry, this example should put them to rest. Somerby is not only NO LIBERAL but he is sounding remarkably like a white supremacist. Just as Tucker Carlson has shed his camouflage, so has Somerby. He no longer seems to care about who he offends or how, in defense of deplorable ideas.

  7. That your goebbelsian media are culling the herd according to your liberal-hitlerian cult's talking points is perfectly normal, dear Bob. That is, after all, their purpose.

    What's not so normal, not normal at all, is that major social media publishing platforms are doing the same.

    It's one thing to deliberately produce goebbelsian content and publish it. Blatant censorship of a public platform is quite another.

  8. So the issue can’t be that it’s bleak, dire and frightening agitprop to focus news and issues in such a way that portrays black people as being on a cop Kill List and thus a veritable “endangered species”.

    The problem isn’t that this particular finger on the scale makes a sad and disproportionate reality disproportionately and horrifyingly worse.

    No, the real problem lies in the way Somerby describes this problem. He doesn’t SOUND as TDH liberals think he should sound. Liberals aren’t supposed to find such things relevant. Bob reminds them of Nazis when he decries this erasing of parts of the story. He’s a bigot for thinking that when it comes to media accuracy rather than narrative in the reporting and analysis of police shootings that All Stats Matter.

    Anonymices are certainly a pack of brainiacs.

    1. It is hard to say, in the light of the many examples, that black people are wrong to feel fear, depressing though it may be.

      For example: "On Wednesday, in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, a Black man was shot ten times by a sheriff’s deputy who had just given him a ride home after his car broke down. The deputy reportedly opened fire on the man after he left and was called back to the home and, as far as the man’s family can tell, he started shooting for no reason whatsoever.

      NBC Washington reports that 32-year-old Isaiah Brown is currently in intensive care after being shot in his face, neck, chest and pelvic area, according to his family.

      “The officer just started shooting at him for no reason,” Brown’s mother, Tazmon Brown, told NBC. “I didn’t hear a warning shot. All I heard was ‘Hands up!’ one time. And all he had was his phone, so I know he put his hands up.”

    2. Anonymouse 5:19pm, just out of a racist sense of misplaced curiosity, would it be relevant to know why the cop was called back to the place and what went down when he/she got there?

      Delete
    3. He was called back because of a dispute between Brown and his brother. There is a suggestion that Brown hoped to get a ride back to his car. The police admitted that there was no gun or other weapon at the scene. The police have not released the body cam video.

    5. Once again, a retreat to anecdotes. Even if this story went down exactly as described, it's just a fact that a couple hundred black people are killed by cops each year, and the vast majority of those are justified. That's a fact. Meanwhile, thousands of blacks are killed each year by fellow blacks, and very few of them are justified, nor are a particularly large amount of the killers ever brought to justice -largely due to the mistrust of police among black people.

      In light of these facts, does pushing this narrative make sense? Is it likely to save black lives? Is saving black lives even the goal, or is something else going on here?

      Delete
    6. A news report isn't exactly an "anecdote."

      We haven't been talking about the total black people killed, but about the unarmed ones and the children. These are disproportionately black given their % of the population. Don't bring up those black-on-black crime stats because they are matched by white-on-white stats.

      This is about how to prevent those unjustifiable killings by police who are supposed to protect and serve not kill unarmed people and children. Of course saving black lives is the goal.

      If you are serious about reducing black crime, you are no doubt supporting anti-poverty and education measures, jobs programs, and similar crime prevention legislation. If not, you are another conservative troll trying to blame racism on black people.

    4. Black people often say in interviews that they believe it's accurate to say they're being genocided. There's roughly 40 million black people in the US, of which several hundred are killed by police on an annual basis.

      Delete
  10. Here is the problem. Somerby thinks he can tell black professors and lawyers what race is and what racism is. As expressed by mohistory2 at DKos, here is the problem with Somerby's approach:

    "We're still having almost completely separate (and far too often, fruitless) conversations about race (while nonetheless believing we're doing great where POC are concerned) because white racial segregation still has us experiencing what we each think race is, yet from what are still explicitly two almost completely separate universes. And because of that continued segregation, whites are still quite unknowingly discussing what they THINK race is from behind the walls of 5 centuries of intentionally conditioned physical and psychological segregation. While nonetheless, absolutely certain with all their hearts that despite those centuries of intentionally placed systemic barriers to their understanding, nonetheless, they “get it”!!! While in extreme, extreme contrast, POC are discussing what they eat, sleep, breath, and die KNOWING, 24/7/365...from DIRECT PERSONAL EXPERIENCE what race is, from literal toddler-hood. And again, not one second of it is optional. And to also emphasize that contrast even more, all of it is also either directly or indirectly absolutely life or death for every one of them at all times."

    I might give Somerby the benefit of the doubt on his cluelessness, but then he uses a phrase like "cull the herd" to discuss dead black children. If he were liberal, he would try not to hurt POC with his remarks. He clearly is a white man who believes he can and should say anything he damned well pleases because no one has feelings except himself. In other words, he is an asshole.

    3. The herd is the dead kids who were killed by police officers.

      Culling the herd is separating the minority children out from the entire herd.

      I know you Anonymices play such games with language in order to label someone a racist, but disappearing dead white kids in order to hype up a particular narrative is precisely the device that makes all these poor kids little more than legos for your toy house.

      Delete
    4. No, here is what Somerby says:

      "Peyton Ham was shot and killed just last week, just 50 miles from D.C.!

      What explains the culling of those names?"

      The white kids were culled because the kids immediately preceding his use of the word "culling" are white. When he says "this culling" he is referring to Peyton Ham, a white person. That means that the remaining names of black kids are the herd.

      Even if he said it your way, it would be an inappropriate, disrespectful way to talk about dead children.

      It is not problematic when a 17 year old is shot because he aims a gun at an officer, in an apparent suicide-by-cop. It IS problematic when a 16 year old girl is shot by police who do not bother to figure out what is going on before, use no conflict resolution technique, just start shooting. No one had been stabbed at the point that the officer shot Bryant. The black shootings have these problematic details involving excessive force and abuse of power. The white ones, not so much. THAT is why the lawyer omitted the white kids.

      Somerby refuses to admit that racism is involved in policing. Apparently, you follow his lead on that. That makes you a moron. The white kids were omitted in order to focus on the contribution of racism to such shootings. White kids are not the victims of racist policing. They benefit from it.

      As to the toy house -- I didn't raise this subject. Somerby did. It is his blog.

      Delete
    5. Leaving aside the usual spurious claim that Somerby thinks that racism is nonexistent or of little influence in modern society, the word “culling” is meant to describe what is being done when media act like this.

      They dehumanize all these kids when they cull from the specifics for their audience. They do this because they like nothing better than making the bad worse. They adore making acid from lemonade and Coke Zero from Coke Classic. They live for it even though they dumb us down and warp a lot of psyches by doing it.

      If you had one ounce of sincerity you’d be able to tolerate Somerby when he makes this point, even though you may take issue with the extent to which he does or his intensity.

      Instead you call him a racist and a traitor. Grow the hell up.

    9. The media didn't leave the white names off, Henning did. She is not a member of the media but a guest on one of the shows. She is an attorney working with children caught up in the juvenile justice system. She is not a journalist or member of the media.

      Somerby tried really hard to say that CNN is responsible for what Henning says, because they brought her onto the show, but it doesn't work that way. The guests are responsible for their opinions, not the hosts of CNN or other cable shows.

      The media focuses on all killings -- just not the same media at each point in time. Somerby wouldn't know about the white killings if it weren't for "the media" because that is where he hears about them. It apparently bothers him when "the media" focuses on the racial aspect of policing. There is no reason why Henning would focus on the white shootings when she is talking about the distinct problems of black children in the justice system.

  11. Kevin Drum says:

    "Black students need to graduate from high school reading at a 12th grade level. This will not "solve" racism. However, it will prove impossible to make very much progress on reducing racism until Black kids are performing at the same level as white kids."

    There is a circularity involved in this reasoning. Drum seems to be assuming that racism is caused by the reading scores gap, and if you fix that, racism can be addressed. What if racism is causing the reading score gap? What if little progress can be made on reducing that gap until after racism is addressed?

    Here is another example of a confident white man expressing an opinion on racism without supplying any evidence in support of his argument, or having any experience with reading instruction or race.

  13. We have to look at crime as a health problem because it works like a virus. You can interrupt crime like a virus too with inoculation of jobs and therapy. We have to stop trusting in violence to solve society's problems. It's not much more scientific to think a cop is the solution to anything wrong in society than Al Capone was. Violence is nothing but a blunt instrument.


    Liberals don't have their act together enough to know that expertise is really far on their side, so they stumble in the dark and let Bob Somerby of all people take jabs at them.

Fortunately, I have a higher opinion of such people, I think they would be disturbed too, even if it's not their own grandkids that Somerby wants to disappear, but their old classmates.

      Perhaps it's all similar to offering a peanut sandwich to seomeone , as TDH stated. Pseudo-concern to go with pseudo names !

    3. I assume that Somerby’s white and minority students wouldn’t appreciate any dead kid being disappeared from that list because of their color.

      However, we now know how you tick.

    5. Well, Ms. Eve, you said earlier that you thought they would correspond with Somerby, implying they wouldn't be bothered by AA kids being shot as seemingly equivalent to their being given peanut sandwiches. Very racist of you to assume that other whites wouldn't care about AA kids.

      Who is the 'we' here ? Are you talking about the other personalities in TDH's brain (using the term loosely) ?

    6. No. I don't assume that they’d would be as stupid as you.

      I’m fairly positive that most people understand an analogy used to illustrate the media’s asinine yabberings of what constitutes intentional from intentional homicide, from the media leaving off an entire racial cohort from crime stats.

      I’m absolutely certain that you don’t.

    7. Ms Eve, I don't think they're stupid either. They're certainly smart enough to realize that killing someone is not equivalent to offering them a peanut sandwich.

      I'm sure they understand that Pseudo-Eve thinks they're racist enough to blame the media for that analogy or for any other trying to brush off AA kid deaths. 'We' surely understand that, Ms. Not Adam

    8. I mean, I think there is some difference between offering someone a peanut sandwich and killing them, but you clearly don't. It doubtless takes a galaxy brain such as yourself to think those are EYE-Dentical!

    9. I’m pretty sure they’re competent enough to understand that ghe aftermath of giving someone penicillin or peanuts when they’re allergic involves intentionality, though you are not.

      Well, nothing can be said to you but “sorry”.

      Delete
    10. Ms Eve, certainly the jury was competent enough to think that kneeling on someone's neck is not equivalent to offering them a peanut sandwich. I would assume that TDH's former students would think they're the same.

      Very racist of you to assume that the majority white jury wouldn't care about an AA person's death. I'm sorry too -- that you have so little faith in white Americans.

    11. I mean 'I would assume that TDH's former students would think that offering a peanut sandwich is NOT the same as kneeling on someone's neck'. I have faith in them, just as I did in the Floyd jury.

    12. The jury obviously did think correctly despite the talking heads being obtuse in their definitions of intentionality, which was Bob’s complaint.

      You’ve disingenuously conflated that into an attack upon the free world while reckoning that it’s fine and dandy to disappear all the dead white kids shot by police officers from the national dialogue.

      You’ve done this while saying that Bob’s former minority students would object to him objecting to this.

      Go in peace, Anonymouse. You’ve served what is the invariable Anonymouse ignominy.

      Delete
    13. Psuedo-Eve, doubtless you'd like me to disappear just the way you want the deaths of AA kids to vanish. Sorry, not willing to oblige.

      Your willingness to turn media concern about Floyd's deaths into an attack on the free world is defensiveness^2 , but one doesn't accept any more from stable non geniuses. I mean kneeling on someone's neck is the same as offering a peanut sandwich -- who could possibly think that's not a solid analogy ?

      Your attempts to impute racism to Somerby's white former students by assuming they would be, like you and BOb, A-OK with AA kids deaths being disappeared and kneeling on someone's nek and causing their death, is notable. But I don't think so.

      How pathetic one must be to think so badly of fellow AMericans. But then again, not surprising !

      You’re a jumbled-up one for sure, but I suppose that serves some purpose.
