No Justice for Stephen Anthony Orlando

You hear a lot in the fake news industry about “white supremacy” and injustice but Jacksonville is where one of the great injustices is being done, and it was based on the notion of black supremacy.

In 1974, an 18-year-old boy’s car broke down and he had to walk home.

A car pulled up and four black men forced the boy – Stephen Anthony Orlando –  into the car at gunpoint.

The four in the car styled themselves the “Black Liberation Army” and they were led by a racist hater named Jacob Dougan. The group’s intent was to indiscriminately kill white people and thus start a revolution and racial war.

They took the boy to the Beaches where he was tortured, shot and stabbed to death – solely because he had white skin.

In a further act of callousness and cruelty, Dougan mailed a recording to the boy’s mother, mocking her with grisly details of Orlando’s final moments.

“I enjoyed every minute of it,” Dougan said.

Dougan was arrested, tried, found guilty and sentenced to death.

The Florida Supreme Court upheld the conviction in 1992, noting that Dougan “knew exactly what he was doing.” It rejected the suggestion that Dougan was owed special consideration because of racial discrimination against other blacks in the past.

Today, 45 years later, Dougan not only is still alive but a court has ordered that he be given a new trial.

That order was three years ago, and still no trial.

The odds are that Dougan will either die of natural causes in prison after living most of his life at taxpayer expense, or be freed.

No one in the media ever has expressed outrage at the brutal, senseless death of a young man who had harmed no one.

Instead there have been sporadic attempts to make Dougan seem a victim. He is represented by a high profile, far-left lawyer in Jacksonville. Taxpayers pay for his endless appeals.

The fact that Dougan is still alive and Orlando is not constitutes a grave injustice, and the only reason it is not heralded in the media is that it does not fit the liberal narrative.
