Body Of 18-Month-Old Cedric Jackson
Found In Landfill, Aunt’s Boyfriend
DALLAS, TX – Sedrick Deshun Johnson — the boyfriend of 18-month-old Cedric “C.J.” Jackson’s aunt — is in police custody in relation to the death of the little boy.
Police arrested the 27-year-old Thursday morning. He was charged with injury to a child, serious bodily injury. According to police, he confessed that he was at the apartment and moved Cedric’s body to a dumpster in northeast Dallas. Detectives learned that the dumpster was emptied twice since then.
According to the arrest affidavit, Johnson stated the 18-month-old “made a mess” with ketchup packets, and that he then tightly swaddled him to restrict his movement and placed him on the floor.
It was reported that around 12:30 a.m. July 10, Johnson unwrapped the little boy and he began to throw up and later became unresponsive.
Johnson told police after he attempted CPR in the bedroom for approximately 30 to 45 minutes, he drove Cedric to another location where he disposed of him in the dumpster.
During a forensic interview, one of the juvenile witnesses reported that Johnson would wrap Cedric too tightly, causing him to cry. The witness stated he heard Cedric crying late-night then stopped suddenly before he disappeared.
Jackson’s aunt, Crystal, stated she had woke up during the night and noticed that both Johnson and Cedric were missing. She then called Johnson and confronted him about why he wasn’t at the residence.
It is believed that Johnson caused serious bodily injury to Jackson by compressing his airway and failed to seek medical assistance.
Johnson’s prior criminal history includes abandoning and endangering a child with intent to return, prostitution, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Dallas police said in 2010, after arresting Johnson for prostitution, his daughter – who was 4 months old at the time – was found left alone in his apartment. Police said Johnson told them he had left her on the bed while he went to the store to get cigars.
Johnson got four years probation for the offense, which he later violated multiple times. Violations include testing positive for THC on several occasions, giving officers false information, resisting arrest.
Police found Cedric’s body in a landfill shortly after 11 a.m. He was taken to the coroner’s office where they will determine how and when he died.
Cedric was reported missing from the Twin Oaks Apartments, in the 9700 block of Whitehurst Drive, around 6 a.m. Wednesday.
Child Protective Services (CPS) recently gave his aunt temporary custody of Cedric for reasons that remain unclear. That woman told police she put the little boy to bed sometime after 11:00 p.m. Tuesday and he was gone the next morning when she woke up.
Before authorities began searching for Cedric’s remains, family members had expressed concern about the aunt’s claim since they say the woman slept next to the child, in the same bed.
Officials issued a statewide Amber Alert for Cedric Wednesday night.
His wife, Sini Mathews, quickly left the courthouse without commenting on the sentence. Originally charged with child abandonment, the registered nurse had her case dismissed earlier this year by prosecutors who said they couldn’t prove it beyond a reasonable doubt.
Before his capital murder trial was to begin Monday, Mathews pleaded guilty to a lesser charge: injury to a child by omission. On Wednesday, he said he accepted whatever decision the jury came to for his punishment, even if it were a life sentence.
“I’m more than happy to take it,” he said Wednesday morning.
Life is precisely what prosecutors advocated for in closing arguments. They argued that Mathews built a public persona of a good father, but ultimately failed to protect Sherin.
Fine accused Mathews of killing the girl and said the father acted out of anger because she wouldn’t finish the milk a doctor had prescribed for her nutrition. The father wanted to exert power over the girl, Fine said.
“He is a liar,” Fine said. “He had to be in control.”
Rafael De La Garza, Mathews’ attorney, defended his client against the murder accusation. He argued prosecutors couldn’t prove Mathews committed murder, otherwise he would have stood trial on that charge.
De La Garza contends that, by pleading guilty, Mathews was accepting responsibility for Sherin’s death, the result of his inaction when the child began to choke. The attorney fought against the perception that Mathews didn’t care about Sherin, and said his client will live with the consequences of her death for the rest of his life.
“You can see from the videos, you can see from the photos that they loved and adored Sherin,” De La Garza told the jury.
Photos and home videos played for the jury during the trial weren’t enough for Fine, however. He argued that Mathews showed his true colors with his behavior after Sherin’s death.
“Great guys and great dads, they don’t stick their daughters in trash bags and dump them in sewage drains,” Fine said.
A day before prosecutors and the defense rested their case Wednesday, Mathews took the witness stand Tuesday to describe the night the toddler died.
He told jurors that Sherin choked while drinking milk in the family’s garage but he didn’t call for emergency help or alert his wife — a registered nurse — because he was scared Child Protective Services would get involved.
Crippled by fear, Mathews testified, he put the girl’s body in a culvert, where it was found about two weeks later.
“I could not absorb what had happened. I could not believe that in a very quick time my child had gone from me,” Mathews said Tuesday. “I was really, really paralyzed.”
Mathews took the witness stand again Wednesday morning, when Fine grilled him on multiple inconsistencies between the account he told police and his testimony Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Mathews told the jury he brought the girl into the garage to see a new lawnmower to calm her down so she could drink her milk, and that he had played piano to pass the time — two things Fine said he never told police. Mathews also testified that he gave Sherin CPR, which Fine said also deviated from what he told police.
As Media Freaks Over 159 Measles Cases, Thousands of Kids Sold as Sex Slaves Out
of Foster Care
If ever you needed a clearer example of the mainstream media’s intentions in this country, you just need to compare the amount of coverage given to the 2019 measles non-crisis—used to bolster vaccine manufacturers’ bottom lines while calling for the silencing of those who advocate for vaccine safety—versus the 18,000 children who will go missing from government-run “protection care” this year—many of whom will be sold into sex slavery.
As the Google trend analysis below shows, the former received a ridiculous amount of coverage while the latter received almost zero.
Unless you’ve been under a rock lately, you’ve probably noticed the utter hysteria over the measles “epidemic” being shoved down the collective throats of America.
If one were to unquestioningly buy into said hysteria you’d think a deadly epidemic is sweeping the nation and children are dropping dead left and right. But that’s simply not true and the reality is there is no epidemic and no one has died.
According to the current numbers from the CDC, there have been just 159 people in the country to report contracting the measles in 10 states.
As a result of the hysterical coverage, however, a widespread war on those who advocate for informed consent has been waged.
For a few dozens cases of measles, Washington declared a state of emergency and media coverage has been devoted round the clock.
To reiterate, as of February 21, 2019, there were only 159 cases of measles confirmed in the entire country, prompting hysteria. But when 18,000 kids a year go missing, many of them being sold into sex slavery, we hear nothing but crickets from these same people.
It is true that some of these kids will run away, others will escape to get away from abuse, and some will get involved with the wrong crowd and follow along. However, many others are outright stolen or kidnapped and end up being sold on the black market like a commodity.
Equally as disturbing as these children going missing is the fact that no one cares to go looking for them, making them easy prey for human traffickers and predators. In fact, in some states, if one of these children goes missing for over 6 months, they are removed from the system entirely and those responsible for them couldn’t care less.
As Darcy Olsen writes for Arizona Central, “giving up on finding a child after six months is contrary to the very purpose of being a guardian. Closing the books also gives predators a green light: If you can keep a kid hidden for six months, you’re home free. Predators should know that we will never give up on finding these children — ever.”
While the media is incorrectly referring to the measles outbreak as an epidemic, the epidemic of child sex abuse is very real.
The fact is that America has a dark secret that no one wants to admit. Talk of this secret will get you labeled as a conspiracy theorist, fake news, and outlets who report on it will have their organic reach throttled by social media and Google alike.
Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many in the mainstream media and the government refuse to see this very real epidemic of child sex trafficking in the United States. What’s more, according to the government’s own data, the vast majority of a portion of these trafficked kids are coming from the government system who promises to keep them safe—a horrifying irony indeed. But it appears to be set up this way.
This system is set up to pull children from their families for ridiculous reasons and turn them over to for-profit systems—funded by your tax dollars—that use these children as cash cows and have no incentive to keep them safe.
In 1984, the United States Congress established the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC), and, as part of Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act of 2013 they receive $40 million to study and track missing and trafficked children in the United States.
In 2017, NCMEC assisted law enforcement with over 27,000 cases of missing children, the majority who were considered endangered runaways.
According to their most recent report compiled from FBI data and their own, of the nearly 25,000 runaways reported to NCMEC in 2017, one in seven were likely victims of child sex trafficking. Of those, 88 percent were in the care of social services when they went missing.
Showing the scope of the abuse, in 2017 alone, NCMEC’s CyberTipline, a national mechanism for the public and electronic service providers to report instances of suspected child sexual exploitation, received over 10 million reports. According to NCMEC, most of these tips were related to the following:
Apparent child sexual abuse images.
Online enticement, including “sextortion.”
Child sex trafficking.
Child sexual molestation.
Other governmental organizations have corroborated this horrifying trend. In a 2013 FBI 70-city nationwide raid, 60 percent of the victims came from foster care or group homes. In 2014, New York authorities estimated that 85 percent of sex trafficking victims were previously in the child welfare system. In 2012, Connecticut police rescued 88 children from sex trafficking; 86 were from the child welfare system.
Equally as disturbing as the fact that most sex-trafficked kids come from within the system is the fact that the FBI discovered in a 2014 nationwide raid that many foster children rescued from sex traffickers, including children as young as 11, were never reported missing by child welfare authorities.
Even high-level government officials have been ensnared in these foster care abuse scandals. As TFTP previously reported, multiple victims came forward and accused Seattle Mayor Ed Murray of sexually abusing them when they were children in Washington’s foster care system.
The records in that case, dating back to 1984, explicitly noted that Ed Murray should “never again be utilized as a certified CSD resource for children.” It also showed that a criminal case was brought against Murray by prosecutors but in spite of the multiple accusations, charges were somehow never filed and his records buried.
As Snopes and the mainstream media in general attempts to smear those who try to call attention to alleged and very real child trafficking, the government’s own data shows how irresponsible this is. While there are certainly some outlandish theories being presented online, the facts are outlandish enough to warrant serious scrutiny. Until this epidemic is taken seriously, the government, the media, and all those who deny it will remain complicit in keeping it going.
As Michael Dolce, who specializes in these horrific child abuse cases, pointed out last year, “we have set up a system to sex traffic American children.” Indeed, and, whether or not it is deliberate, sensationalizing a measles non-crisis is perfect cover to keep that system going.
For the last number of years, our nation has been awash in “hate crimes” against minorities, homosexuals, and transgendered folk.
Or have we?
The national media went into an instant froth in early February when actor Jussie Smollett, of the TV show “Empire,” claimed to have been beaten by two white guys wearing “MAGA” hats and yelling that Chicago is “MAGA country,” an assertion that is about as far from the truth as it is possible to get. Smollett was able to tick two boxes on his victim card as both a black and a homosexual.
Now, however, Smollett has turned from a victim into a perp. Chicago police are now saying the attack was staged by the actor with the help of two acquaintances of his from Nigeria who took five grand from Smollett for their part in the hoax. Celebrities from coast-to-coast are back-pedaling as fast as they can to get away from the mess altogether. Even Nancy Pelosi deleted her nasty Tweet.
Last November, In Mississippi, an apparently horrid hate crime involving nooses turned out to be nothing of the sort. In fact, the “perpetrators” were not racists but anti-racists. The nooses were not an expression of racism, but a protest against racism.
The nooses in question were hung in the Mississippi state capitol building the day before the election last November. Cindy-Hyde Smith, the Republican candidate and eventual winner, had made a lame joke about hanging that was clearly made in reference to the fate of horse thieves in the Old West.
The nooses had been found along with what the media called “hate signs,” which was a narrative that worked until the Mississippi Department of Public Safety released photos of the “hate signs.” Here’s what they said:
On Tuesday, November 27th thousands of Mississippians will vote for a senator. We need someone who respects the lives of lynch victims.
We’re hanging nooses to remind people that times haven’t changed.
Oops. The message of the nooses was not targeted at blacks but at supposedly racist whites. The media slowly and reluctantly corrected their inflammatory headlines.
Also in Mississippi, just a week before the 2018 election that sent Donald Trump to the White House, a historic black church was burned and spray-painted with the message “Vote Trump.” It was immediately labeled a “hate crime,” and remained so until authorities discovered that the culprit was actually a member of the congregation. After the fire, while their church was being renovated, the congregation worshiped at a predominantly white church, a sign of the progress in race relations in the Deep South.
I am the co-author of Idaho’s marriage amendment, passed 63-37 in 2006 to enshrine man-woman marriage in our state constitution. The homosexual lobby spent a good part of the campaign insisting that the amendment would unleash a wave of hate and violence targeted at gays in Idaho.
Sure enough, the day after the election, a twenty-something man filed a police report that he had been jumped while walking on our city’s greenbelt by attackers yelling anti-gay slurs and swinging their fists. Ah, said the activists, there is your proof – we told you this would happen!
However, it didn’t take long for his story to unravel when he was questioned by police, and it turned out that he beat himself up because apparently there were no gay-haters in Boise willing to do it for him.
Andy Ngo is a journalist, editor (at Quillette), and photographer who started a thread on Twitter two days ago rehearsing the litany of fake hate crimes over the last several years. (I’d show you but I have been suspended – again- by Twitter for telling the truth about sexual deviancy.)
Here is his giant list of fake hate crimes, just during the Trump administration. In my judgment, we should simply abolish the “hate crime” designation altogether. Every crime is a hate crime, and we should not give more legal protections to victims of some crimes than we give to victims of other crimes. Justice indeed should be blind to color.
Peter Kirsanow, a member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights, points out that the facts contradict the media narrative that hate crimes are on rapid and disturbing rise:
FBI statistics for 2015 (the most recent available at the time of the 2018 U.S. Commission on Civil Rights Hate Crimes Hearing ) show that there were 1,997,700 violent crimes in the U.S. A total of 5,850 crimes were designated hate crimes — whether violent or non-violent. There were 15,696 cases of murder or manslaughter in the U.S., of which 8, or .0005, were designated hate crimes. There were 764,449 aggravated assaults, of which 681, or .00089, were designated hate crimes. There were 124,047 rapes, of which 12, or .000096, were designated hate crimes. There were 327,374 robberies, of which 120, or .00036, were designated hate crimes.
In 2017, nearly 90 percent of reporting police departments registered zero hate crimes in their respective jurisdictions. And the most recent data show that blacks are much more likely to commit hate crimes than whites. In fact, blacks are approximately 200 percent more likely to commit hate crimes than whites.
At a Commission hearing on hate crimes, Kirsanow asked this question of the panel of criminologists, law-enforcement officials, and hate-crime experts:
“Are you aware of any data, studies, or other evidence that shows that designating a crime a hate crime deters, prevents, or reduces that crime, and second, whether designating a crime a federal hate crime reduces, deters, or prevents incidents of that crime?”
No one answered. Kirsanow poses this question to us: “If designating a crime a hate crime doesn’t deter, prevent, or resolve such crime, what’s the purpose of the designation? By now, most Americans are getting a pretty good idea.”
In other words, “hate crimes” are not about justice at all. They’re about giving regressives a cudgel to beat conservatives about the head and shoulders until everybody figures out the crimes are fabrications.
Here’s a point worth pondering. If hate crimes are so rare they have to be invented, perhaps America is not nearly as racist and homophobic as the Talking Snake Media wants us to believe. And maybe, just maybe, the hate and racism are coming from the left rather than the right.
AG Paxton Commends 5th Circuit
Decision Regarding Exclusion of
Planned Parenthood from Medicaid
AUSTIN, TX – Attorney General Ken Paxton today commended the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit after it reversed the district court’s decision preventing Texas from eliminating Planned Parenthood from the Medicaid program.
“The 5th Circuit’s ruling shows that the district court applied the wrong legal standard,” Attorney General Paxton said. “Planned Parenthood’s reprehensible conduct, captured in undercover videos, proves that it is not a ‘qualified’ provider under the Medicaid Act, so we are confident we will ultimately prevail.”
During oral argument, the attorney general’s legal team recounted raw, unedited footage from eight hours of undercover videos showing violations of medical and ethical standards by Texas Planned Parenthood officials. This footage was also described in the Fifth Circuit’s opinion.
In the videos, Planned Parenthood employees admit that some doctors performed abortions to obtain fetal tissue for their own research and would manipulate the timing and methods of abortions.
The Fifth Circuit included a picture of the fetal tissue Planned Parenthood was harvesting. Federal laws prohibit researchers from performing abortions to secure fetal tissue for their own research under such circumstances, and prohibits modifying abortion procedures to obtain tissue for research purposes.
In December 2016, the inspector general of Texas Health and Human Services removed Planned Parenthood from the state’s Medicaid program for the video footage of actions that “violate generally accepted medical standards,” and for making false statements to law enforcement.
Though Planned Parenthood is still under investigation, it receives around $3.1 million a year in Texas Medicaid funding.
