Recently, NBC 10 News Philadelphia ran the usual “Robbery Gone Wrong” story (Teen Beaten to Death While Walking Home With Groceries, by David Chang, February 17, 2014) about a killing in Trenton NJ. The victim was Julio Cesar Cruz, an “immigrant” from Guatemala. Two black teenagers allegedly beat him to death.
The original story included the MSM weasel phrase “Police have not yet released a detailed description of the suspects,” which apparently now means that the police told the reporter that all they know was that it was “two black teens”, but the reporter isn’t going to tell you that, because it’s not news and will just give you bad feelings about black teens.
When the perps were caught and charged, the same station did run a picture—but no description, of course:
This is a common story in Trenton. Guatemalans, who have recently begun flooding into Trenton, are viewed by the Black underclass as easy marks. They are small of stature and, being mostly illegals and working for cash, carry a lot of money. There have been literally hundreds of such robberies.
But this one triggered something different:
Cruz’s murder galvanized the community as they rallied and coordinated with law enforcement seeking justice. Days after Cruz’s death, a rally of 350 people seeking justice took place on the steps of City Hall. And on Tuesday community leaders met with the Trenton Police and the prosecutor’s office to coordinate efforts.

What set all the gears in motion? The local power structure is as Democrat as it is possible to be. Hispanics of various types (as we are incessantly told) are the coming demographic. They fill the many urban service jobs local black Americans “will not do.” They have many advocates within the power structure in New Jersey (including, notoriously, GOP Governor Chris Christie).
Note that The Trentonian, the prosecutor, and the police chief, all use the term “immigrants” although they know for a fact that the people they are helping are themselves criminal trespassers.
Indeed, the local County Prosecutor Joseph Bocchini went further. He is quoted in The Trentonian story as claiming:
“The fact of the matter is that those who control these types of events (referring to elected officials) need to do something to make immigrants be able to become documented somehow…Let them get a driver license, let them open savings accounts, let them pay their taxes, and their [sic] willing to. We as a society need to wake up.”
And no, Bocchini isn’t an immigrant from Central America. He actually talks like that.
We also learn that the victim’s brother got a call “from the office of the Guatemalan Presidency congratulating the local Guatemalan community for coming together for justice.”
So, in the state capital of New Jersey, we have a complete inversion of the legal process. The government is taking up the cause of one set of foreign criminals against another set of domestic criminals.
Of course the illegals are committing a status crime and the resident blacks are committing murder, so there is a question of proportion to be considered. But, to state the obvious, if the illegals weren’t here in gross violation of our law, they wouldn’t be the targets for our resident savages.
There is another aspect of this story to consider. The Trentonian reporter, the chief of police and various community leaders quoted, are all Hispanic. The Mayor of Trenton, who is black, was convicted on federal charges and evicted from his office while all this was going.

There is an inexorable changing of the guard in the New Jersey’s capital. Guatemalans are moving into whole neighborhoods while Blacks are being displaced out to the margins of the city.
Trenton just may become the first State Capital in America with an illegal majority population.
It already appears that the President of Guatemala feels himself to be a councilman of sorts.
