In fact, MSNBC ran an entire exposé on the frequent Ferguson peaceful protester Joshua Williams.

As GotNews reported, Joshua Williams spoke at Al Sharpton’s rally in Washington DC in December.

Joshua’s speech was posted on CSPAN.

Black Lives Matter protest leader Joshua Williams was sentenced to 13 years total in prison for torching and burglarizing the Berkeley, Missouri QuikTrip.

KMOV reported:
A young man was sentenced to 13 years in prison in connection to the 2014 destruction of a QuikTrip in Berkeley.

Joshua Williams, 19, was sentenced to eight years for arson and five years for burglary in the case, according to authorities.

Police say Williams ignited the fire at the convenience drug store during protests after the death of 18-year-old Antonio Martin. The 18-year-old was shot and killed by a Berkeley police officer.

    What police chief lets himself be yelled at?????

    One with no cajones.

  • Well, bye.      BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • Cowardly Lion


  • Like the Muslim behind the “Hug a Muslim” campaign that was subsequently arrested for making Bomb Threats against the government and is now facing prison time — all of these Community Agitators wherever they are in the world are nothing but muckraking agent provocateurs and everything else but the good and decent people that they purport themselves to be for strictly personal self-serving agendas. Be it for financial profit or just climbing that agitator ladder until they finally get a high paying gig on MSNBC or at a University teaching a class on how to disingenuously gin up strife that affects each and every person in the community for fun and profit — none of them are benevolent and righteous. Not a single solitary one. Some are just much better at the perpetration of the fraud than others is all it is.


  • Joe W

    Black Lazy Moochers. He should also have to reimburse for damages. Be a man, and man up. But that will never happen.

  • Bubba Gump

    Seems kind of a light sentence IMHO. I think instead of the taxpayers footing the bill to feed and clothe him for the next decade I think we need a new law stating the families must provide all life sustaining substances like some of the Mooseslum countries. They seem to like the Mooseslums now days so lets follow their lead.

  • Patty

    someone must demand we investigate Libtards like this, the haters and some our teaching our kids. The next generation is being influence in this hate. Demand investigating. Yes, free speech but this is hate speech.

    Democrats want to be PC well, throw it back into the face:

    Radical School Principal Bans Pledge of Allegiance, Christmas, Thanksgiving


    A report states that Eujin Jaela Kim, a public school principal
    in Brooklyn, has banned virtually all celebrations that run afoul of
    far-left political correctness.
    Liberal educators are a huge reason as to why America is no longer what she used to be.

    Somewhere down the line, leftist instructors got to Barack Obama and brainwashed him into believing that America is not the greatest nation on earth. Communist Frank Marshall Davis (44’s mentor) played a big part, but there were plenty of others along the way.

    Check out how far they’ve stretched political correctness at a public school in Brooklyn, NY…

    From the New York Post: http://nypost.com/2015/12/13/sensitive-principal-bans-santa-and-other-religious-symbols/

  • Jim

    One of Obama’s “sons” got jail time. Who would have seen that coming (heh, heh, heh)?

  • Original Prankster

    No worries, Obama will pardon him next week and then invite him for an all-expense paid trip to the White House

  • KatherineBranwen

    Another Obama would be son. His would be offspring are good at destroying things and people. Chips off the old block, I guess.

  • Jim

    “That” makes me feel better.

  • Mike in Illinois

    We should be seeing dozens and dozens and dozens of stories just like this one.
    Why aren’t we? Camera crews from all over the country FILMED it ALL. SO where are the scores of trials and convictions?

  • Mike in Illinois

    I can see him granting clemency. Indeed I would bet on it if I was a gambling man.

  • Mike in Illinois

    SO we finally found out where soon is!!!!

  • Mike in Illinois

    It will be clemency.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Every prisoner should be billed every month for costs of incarceration. Any public aid tied to the convict themselves and their offspring must be garnished. At the end of any sentence, parole included, any paycheck they get, welfare included must face the same garnishment. Only when each individual is forced to pay for their own incarceration will they stop wearing it as a badge of honor.

    Wanna go to college? You have to pay for that.
    Wanna live in a nursing home? You have to pay for that.
    Want to live in your own apartment or home? You have to pay for it.
    Wanna eat? You have to pay for it.
    Wanna live in jail? Yup, you get to pay for that too.

    Society should not be saddled with the bills that criminals incur. Criminals must be forced to pay their own debt to society, instead of making society pay for it for them. Stop punishing US for the actions of the guilty!!!!

  • Mike in Illinois

    She looks like a student, not a principal.

  • Dingus chopper

    He will be in prison getting it in the ol bung soon LMAO He will be yelling for a prison guard saying ” hep me hep meeee ……Black bungs matter !!!!!”

  • Dingus chopper

    He will get a few candy bars in prison if he don’t bite LMAO

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Truth be told, he was a bad guy who was going to end up in prison at some point in his life. And like most feral black hood rats, he’s occupying a prison cell long before his 21st birthday.

  • tham

    I would hope the next president appoints someone to watch things like this and halt all federal funding to any such school. That sh*t will stop but quick.

  • jainphx

    He’ll be out in two to torch another Quick Trip.

  • jainphx

    Every stinking one of the unwashed thugs.

  • jainphx

    Protecting! Ha that was the furthest thing from his evil mind. The only words he knows in situations like this is “stand down”

  • jainphx

    Often I hope!

  • Redacted

    Looks like 8 years from now we’ll have another homosexual communist to elect for president after all.

  • tham

    I’m sure the jury was biased against this young man. Any blacks on the panel were intimidated by white privilege. He’ll be freed on appeal.

  • dave0987

    Great news. Now let’s get some more, say like 99% of the Black Lies Matter bowel movement in prison.

  • Ron Peterson

    Why do I think that when Joshua Williams gets out of prison, he will self-identify as Jonas Malik Shabazz or some such nation of islam moniker

  • bitterlyclinging

    Due to be pardoned soon and receive an invitation to a White House Rose Garden Beer Summit where Barack (Named after Mohamed’s horse) Hussein Obama will elucidate the new legal system he and former Attorney General Eric Holder, the most racist Attorney General in the nation’s history drew up together, the Safari Principle.
    Under the Safari Principle, all are obliged to behave according to the following principles: There are individuals among us that cannot ignore their instincts, control their emotions, or comply with any laws. Therefore if you should come into contact with them, any harm befalling you or them, is totally and completely YOUR fault, exclusively.
    Gentle Giant Mike Brown, a urine THC metabolite concentration of 188 nanograms per ml, indicated a blood THC concentration that would have put the Gentle Giant in a hallucinatory state, probably thinking he was Superman, and that officer Darren Wilson’s bullets were harmlessly bouncing off of him as he charged officer Wilson. At least until the eye shot anyway.

  • Valerie

    I am glad to see that the criminal justice system is working in at least some cases.

  • Karma’s Janitor

    Convenience stores are for juveniles

    13 years in the big house ought to be enough for him to complete his criminal training

    He will be a major league criminal when he gets out

  • Lord Aaron

    It’s a miracle they got a conviction. All the racists in STL have made it impossible.

  • BillyBob Bob

    Thirteen years for arson and burglary, or as Obama considers it, “victimless crimes.”

  • Patriot

    Just a hamster, it’s in their DNA,

  • Dian_Cecht

    How many cities will burn for this?

  • Dian_Cecht

    He’ll be tossing salads in his sleep by the time he gets out…

  • Stuck_in_Ca

    Nicholas Austin Jackson needs a nice punch in the mouth.

  • tham

    I’d like to spray some soap foam into it before you punch it.

  • lajaw

    That’ll never work. They can’t feed themselves outside of prison. Better alternative is to bring back corporal punishment and indentured servitude. Steel something, you get publicly caned. Embezzle some money, indentured servitude. Then shut down all the private prisons.

    and then this:

  • Phoenix_Damaged

    Piece of advice, Joshua: Don’t drop the soap in the shower room. Butt try to have fun – 2920 days is a long time, but well deserved.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Hunger is a powerful motivator.
    Everything done in the private sector is done better than things government controls. I agree that private prisons in the past could be abusive environments but that is dealt with by proper oversight and penalty for not adhering to laws set for operation.
    I am for capital punishment earned by heinous crimes but other than that, detention absent violence is the only way. We do not torture. Pain inflicted punitively for retribution and revenge is not justice. It is tyranny.

    Earned debt is not indentured servitude. Theft is dealt with by compensation awarded via a guilty verdict – that simply has to be paid back.

  • tommy mc donnell

    ever notice that the people that complain about police brutality are supporters of a political ideology that creates governments with a secret police.

  • Gnome Sane

    Too bad he wasn’t in Baltimorgue, he would have been given space to destroy.

  • Joe Schmoe

    LOL, these morons still are unable to relate their sky high crime rate to bad encounters with the police

  • PinkPigs

    Good. I hope all his ignorant followers that he was leading now ….follow him right in to prison.

    Then they can wear shirts that say………Picking up Soap Matters.

  • Patty

    people we must fight back this political correctness business and quick.

    Here’s why. And this is off topic:

    Will never happen to one of Obama;s street leaders. Pardon.

  • owl

    Wish I believed he was going to prison. That poor child will be pardoned immediately. You think Obama would blink over giving him a pardon? He swapped 5 badazz head choppers for a traitor.
