Brandon McInerney’s Attorneys Really Don’t Want Him to Face Trial


First Brandon McInerney’s lawyers tried to get Judge Charles Campbell, in Ventura County, California, to recuse himself over some sort of perceived bias. Campbell said “uh uh.” Now they’re trying to secure a change in venue, saying there’s no way McInerney (pictured), accused of shooting to death his 15-year-old gay classmate Lawrence King in January 2008, can get a fair trial because of all the publicity. I would argue he can’t get a fair trial because no matter what, God has other plans for him.

    Don’t be fooled by the name “Lawrence King”. It was a beaner. I’m glad the predatory short brown mongoloid is no longer around to harass nice young white men. Free Brandon!

  • Toby


    Beaner? Mongoloid? you are all over the place LOL…you sound like my grandfather after the stroke.

    He likely isn’t going to get a fair trial and by god, I hope he does he not.

    Ha, added an extra he in there.

    I think everyone needs to show a little compassion, the kid was 14 and ruining his life permanently is nothing more than an eye for an eye!

  • Queer Supremacist

    @ron: There’s a guy named Bill Perdue I’d like you to meet. You two will have a lot to talk about.

    @toyotabedzrock: As a gay man and a Jew, I’m totally okay with “an eye for an eye”. Fry the Aryan breeder motherfucker.

  • Tallskin

    @queersupremacist – Hmmm and what are you first, a queer or a jew?

    and be careful what you answer considering judaism is the fountainhead of the nasty three middle-eastern sky pixie religions (judiasm, christianity and islam) and the cause of the homophobia in all three.

    And thus judaism is the cause of 2,500 years of misery for gays and lesbians

    So, I therefore find it a bit strange that you would couple “jew” and “gay’ together. Bit like trying to mix matter and anti-matter isn’t it?

  • Dawson

    @Phil: Every American is entitled to a fair trial. That is one of the beliefs this country was founded on. You don’t get to ask for the same rights as others and then chose to deny others of their rights. Even thinking things like that is insane. This person deserves a fair trial, and I do agree with a change of venue; however, I’m not sure you can really change the venue of a case that has gotten national attention. In the end, the person deserves a fair trial free of bias.

  • DR

    An eye for an eye solves what, exactly? McInerney isn’t eligible for the death penalty since he’s under 18, and life w/o parole won’t bring back King. I’m not suggesting we let him go with a hug and a box of candy (hey, someone is dead, and while I don’t like kids getting LWOP, I certainly see this as a dramatically different scenario than what happened to the good pastor in GA), these ignorant comments about children in the judicial system scare me.

    There is no chance we’ll see justice in a system like ours which is skewed towards leniency if not outright protection of homohating thugs while it deliberately targets and victimizes working class people of color. The system is flawed beyond repair,

    Brandon McInerney may be young and stupid but he’s a young and stupid murderer. The young gay/trans man who he murdered lost his future and his life to a deliberate, cold blooded monster.

    The big question is should he get life without parole and suffer for a long, long time or get the death penalty and suffer more intensely for a shorter time.

    I fear that he’ll get a sentence that’ll allow him to walk. That happens far too often.

    Allow me to repeat….

    The United States Supreme Court rules several years ago that juveniles are NOT subject to the death penalty. It’s settled law. That debate is done and over. ROPER v. SIMMONS, No. 03-0633

    Please stop wishing someone would sanction the state to kill a child.

  • Queer Supremacist

    @Tallskin: Yet Israel is the only Middle Eastern nation where homosexuality and breathing are permitted at the same time. Funny how some religions give up their bad habits quicker than others.

    You are just another Nazi, like Bill “donal1944” Perdue.

  • Tallskin

    @Queer Supremacist – I made no comment about israel and don’t intend to.

    I was asking YOU how you can reconcile saying you’re jewish yet judiasm invented western homophobia.

    I say the same to christians and muslims who announce proudly that they’re “gay christrians” or “gay muslims”.

    So, answer the question, how can you proclaim that you are a ‘jew’ and ‘gay’ when judaism invented homophobia and gave that homophobia to both christianity AND islam.

  • Queer Supremacist

    @DR: Please stop wishing someone would sanction the state to kill a child.

    Why? He’s already a bloodthirsty psychopath. At least he’s turning his bloodlust on someone who, if proven guilty, actually deserves to die for a change.

  • Tallskin

    @Queer Supremacist – oh, and by the way, whenever i tackle muslims sbout their homophobia they always call me a ‘zionist pig’ or somesuch!

    They are mirror images of you!


  • Bill Perdue

    @Tallskin: Careful, next thing you know he’ll flag you like he did me.

  • Queer Supremacist

    @Tallskin: Because it is mainly orthodox Judaism that still has a problem with homophobia, and I am extremely critical of them for that. But other denominations, like the one in which I was raised, are far more tolerant of gays. Some even perform—gasp—gay marriages! Judaism is not perfect but is way ahead of the two Abrahamic faiths on gays.

    As for that Nazi cyberstalker’s out-of-context quoting of me, I also said the following:

    “Anti-zionism is anti-semitism because it means denying the Jewish people our hard-earned right to sovereignty. Enemies of gays have no right to sovereignty and deserve no consideration for their irrational feelings or their invalid point of view.”

    “China has no right to sovereignty because despite rudimentary free markets they still pay more than just lip service to a murderous ideology. Most of the western and central European nations have a right to sovereignty (but they are not nearly as sophisticated as they claim to be; giving up liberty for security is not sophistication). The United States, for all its shortcomings, does because it is still freer than most nations on Earth. And Israel does, too.”

    “If the majority of Jews turn against gays I will become an atheist.”

    “If the majority of the gays turn against Jews I will become celibate and actively homophobic. But because I was fortunate enough to be raised in the least homophobic of the three Abrahamic faiths by non-Orthodox Jews who accepted me being gay more than they accepted me turning against Democrats, I do not have to choose my loyalties.
    Meanwhile, how can you condemn Islamists while supporting a cause that is part and parcel of Islamism? That’s cognitive dissonance. Or maybe you’re just another vulgar anti-semite to whom “the enemy of the enemy is my friend.” ”

    “Take your Jihad to Stormfront where it belongs, Eva. I, for one, will continue to support the state of Israel, the people of Israel, and fight homophobia in Israel as strongly as in the United States and in every country on Earth. I will not even entertain the basic notion of a “Palestinian” state while it stands for the principles of anti-semitism, homophobia, terrorism, land robbing and genocide.”

    “Lest you think I find it admirable, or even logistically feasible, to go around killing innocent people, let me clarify my position. Christian and Muslim apostates I have no problem with. Gays who have the misfortune of being raised under the Islamic hate cult need our help most of all. I support a universal standard of human rights based on the principles of liberty, both economic and social, to which all nations need to adhere.”

    So if you can’t see a difference between condemning Judaism and condeming Christianity and Islam, you really need to take a hard long look at yourself. The Jews are persecuted by Christians and Muslims just like gays are. Both of us were targets of Hitler. Both are targets of illegitimate Middle Eastern hate states. We have so much in common that we need to stick together and reach out to them, as we have common enemies. You don’t have to believe in a god to see that.

    Oh, and this Brandon McInerney is a neo-Nazi in training from what I have gathered.

    If his lawyers didn’t employ these tactics, they’d be guilty of malpractice. Hello, they are supposed to do what is best for their client. Don’t you people know anything about the justice system?

  • DR

    @whatever: No, whatever, they do not. It’s easier to sit and shine the pitchforks than learn something new, especially when it comes to criminal activity or the justice system. It’s the same knee-jerk reactions the anti-marriage folks have been spewing for almost twenty-four hours.

    @Queer Supremacist: I assume that part of your comment is directed, in part, to the judge hearing the case. Get off the assumption that all heterosexuals are haters, it makes you look like a raging paranoid lunatic. And referring to the perp as an “Aryan breeder” doesn’t help your credibility, either.

  • Bill Perdue

    @whatever: Whatever is dead wrong. There is no ‘justice’ system.

    The legal-police-prison is biased against people of color, women, immigrant and imported workers, GLBT folks and working people in general. It lacks any semblance of fairness or justice. It routinely lets off thugs like McInerney and is skewed towards leniency for cops, racists, homohaters and woman bashers. The system is flawed beyond repair

    The rot begins at the top. Obama, Clinton and both Bushes lied over and over again to justify the invasions, occupations and mass murder of Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghanis and Pakistanis to profit oil merchants of death and Big Oil. Each in succession has adamantly refused to prosecute the crimes of their predecessors. Both Bushes, Clinton and Obama use kidnapping, torture and murder and get away with it

    Armed thugs patrol the streets who can and do kill and get away it. We call them cops.

    If there were even the appearance of justice BP and Haliburton officials, and their accomplices in the Obama and Bush Administration, would get life for their crimes against the economy and environment. They’d join thousands of banking, financial and insurance company owners, managers and looters who wrecked the economy and stole trillions. And they’d be cellmates with HMO execs who routinely let patients die if the medical costs are less than the legal fines. The owners and managers of the West Virginia mine, Massey Energy would go to jail for murdering almost 30 miners.

    The looter rich have so many corrupt attorneys (except for a few civil libertarians, they’re all crooked) that they always get away with murder.

    Justice is impossible in a banana republic ruled by and for the looter rich. Socialism with real economic and political democracy, not to be confused with Stalinism – is the answer. No socialism, no justice.

    There are no “Palestinians”. You’re nothing but an Arabist pig defending filthy genocidal homophobic Muslim camel fuckers, while perseverating (sic) (sick) discredited Stalinist tropes like a severely autistic parrot…

    Take your pro-Muslim blood libel elsewhere or I will report your IP address to the FBI for treasonous activity.

    The land of Israel belongs to the Jews, including the parts illegally occupied by goyische breeder terrorists. They have more of a right to exist than the United States…

    (I consider all heterosexual sex acts rape)…

    The only thing keeping Obama from becoming a dictator are the constitutional separation of powers…

    On the other hand, Israel’s founding, in a location where there was a Jewish state before the convicted thief Jesus and the child rapist Muhammad were even born, was to protect Jews from further hate crimes from heretic goyim (all gentile religions are heretic… Israel needs … to do whatever it takes to protect innocent people from being brutally murdered by terrorist scum who worship convicted felons like Jesus and child molesters like Muhammad.

    And the first equivocation of Zionism (that’s with a capital Z, for the rest of you Pan-Arabist scum) with racism by the United Nazis, I mean the United Nations…

    Uganda has no right to sovereignty. Iran has no right to sovereignty. Iraq has no right to sovereignty. Afghanistan has no right to sovereignty. Jamaica has no right to sovereignty. Saudi Arabia has no right to sovereignty. Zimbabwe has no right to sovereignty. The Vatican has no right to sovereignty…. China has no right to sovereignty…

    If the majority of the gays turn against Jews I will become celibate and actively homophobic.

    @Queer Supremacist:
    I’m gay too, except I have compassion. I suppose you would execute him?

  • Queer Supremacist

    @toyotabedzrock: I have compassion for the victim, Lawrence King. I grieve for the victims of gay bashing, I support hate crimes laws, and I expect them to be fucking used regardless of the age of the perp. I would execute this little white trash glorified-turkey-baster neo-Nazi in a heartbeat. There needs to be no age limit on the death penalty, and certainly not for hate criminals like this. Die, Brandon, die!

    @DR: I never said all heterosexuals were haters. But the vast majority of them are. But I see no evidence that heterosexuality has done any good to society other than producing more gay people. Culturally, they have been a disaster.

    @Bill Perdue: I see the gay love child of Eva Braun and Josef Goebbels is at it again, selectively removing what I said. And I stand by everything I said. You’re just an intellectually dishonest totalitarian prick.

    I said:

    “Arabist-terrorist sympathizing slime like you are reasons why Israel needs to exist as a Jewish state, and needs to do whatever it takes to protect innocent people from being brutally murdered by terrorist scum who worship convicted felons like Jesus and child molesters like Muhammad.”

    You claim I said:

    “(all gentile religions are heretic… Israel needs … to do whatever it takes to protect innocent people from being brutally murdered by terrorist scum who worship convicted felons like Jesus and child molesters like Muhammad.”

    You support the Palestinazis because they’re Soviet-trained totalitarians like you. The blood of every gay person in that misbegotten region who was ever killed for being gay is on your hands and those of every other terrorist apologist.

    Not only are you a liar and an asshole but you are an enabler of genocide.

  • Queer Supremacist

    @Phil: He likely isn’t going to get a fair trial and by god, I hope he does he not.

    I’d say if he gets tried, convicted and executed that will be justice enough in my book. While it won’t bring Lawrence King back, it will be the next best thing. We need to send the message that hate crimes will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    Society rightly proscribes murder (which is different from merely “killing” because it describes the intent of the perpetrator) because it violates an innocent person’s right to life. Brandon McInernazi not only did just that to Lawrence King but did it because of an immutable characteristic that made him superior to his perpetrator. That any gay person or supposedly pro-gay person would plead for his life scares me. But then again, I have seen defenses of both Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein on this very site.

    In the marketplace of ideas, not all ideas are of equal validity. The idea that gay people should be killed for being gay an invalid one. The idea that people of western and central European origin are superior to any other race or ethnicity is fatuous and easily discredited. The law needs to reflect that while you may be “free” to hold these ideas (i.e. the government cannot prosecute you for them), if you act on them in this fashion, you need to be punished as severely as possible. If that includes the death penalty, then forgive me if I shed no tears for dead hate criminals.

    And here’s the evidence that he was a budding neo-Nazi:

    “Brandon McInerney, who was 14 when Larry King was fatally shot during a computer lab class, was acquainted with local neo-Nazis and kept a notebook with elaborate drawings of Nazi symbols and regalia, according to testimony from an investigator. McInerney, who is now 15, has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder.

    The evidence strongly indicates he had been indoctrinated to some level,” said Dan Swanson, a Simi Valley police detective and specialist in neo-Nazi gangs. On the second day of McInerney’s preliminary hearing in Ventura County Superior Court, Swanson discounted earlier testimony that McInerney had black and Latino friends at school, contending that white supremacists are accustomed to hiding their true beliefs.

    A search of McInerney’s bedroom and backpack yielded the notebook, seven of Hitler’s speeches translated into English and a book about SS troopers who had been former members of the Hitler Youth. The collection reflected an interest in the Nazis that was far more profound than the World War II book report McInerney had been assigned, the investigator testified.

    Swanson said the teenager’s family was friendly with a white supremacist in Oxnard’s Silver Strand area. The man told Swanson that he and his girlfriend allowed McInerney to sleep in their apartment a night or two before the shooting.”

    Brandon McInerney left his home with a gun. He proceed to school where he shot Lawrence King point blank in the head two times in front of many other students. This was a 100% deliberate premeditated act. He is 100% guilty with no uncertainy. His lawyers are unfortunately muddying the waters as much as possible to make the case ripe for years of appeals. They need only get one juror that hates Gays to vote not to convict. The only sliver of good to come out of this is that Lawrence King’s family donated his organs.

    We need to realize that some persons simply are wired wrong from birth. People who commit such brazen horrific acts are incapable of changing. Like the recent case of a few students who decided to kill for fun another student. In broad daylight they attacked a kid going to school. They beat him again and again with 2′ x 4’s in front of other students on video. I may hate every single fiber of their being ofsome of the rightwing lunatics who cast vicious hate against the Gays. Yet I could never pick up a 2′ x4′ and beat them until they are dead. Society has deemed a rabid dog should be permantly removed from society. If a person serves notice upon society that they are unfit to live among normal persons they need to be permantly removed from it……..

  • Feeling for both victims

    Some of Brandon’s teachers said he was a victim of bullying too by Lawrence King. He was pushed to the limit and King embarrassed McInerney by asking him to be his valentine in front of all his friends. I feel for both sides. They both had very troubled paths. Brandon should have just punched him instead of using a gun. I dont really know how to explain it but I still feel for Brandon too and believe he needs counseling and doesnt need life in prison. Just a long sentence.

  • edgyguy1426

    @Tallskin: I’m jewish as well, but a practicing buddhist. Jews determine our heritage thru maternal lineage. I will always be a jew AND gay but reject judaic rules and teachings, the way you phrase it, it would be like how can you be Swedish and gay or Brazilian and gay. Jewish is something we are, judiaism is something we practice or not. Please don’t confuse the two next time you question how can someone be a jew and gay. I can’t NOT be a jew any more than an African-American cannot be an African American.
