A victory turns out to be a huge fail for the Race DetectivePosted: February 21, 2015
Always jumping the gun and claiming victory before the dust settles is a favorite past time of Charles. When the NAACP was allegedly hit with a pipe bomb, some people on twitter claimed it was a hoax. Playing the Race Detective role, Charles went to the defense of the NAACP’s claims. It turns out the pipe bomb was not a hoax and there was an arrest made. Before the details of what occurred came out, Charles declares victory and vindication.
Always being the linker and not a thinker, the link Charles provided shows that the alleged perpetrator of the bomb Thaddeus Murphy did not target the NAACP. He was targeting a tax preparation office, that he had problems with.
Murphy told investigators he intended to target the tax preparation company and not the NAACP during an interview, according to sources.
An affidavit said Murphy was targeting an accountant named Steve Dehaven who “wouldn’t return to him his tax records from 2006 to the present and wouldn’t return his phone calls.” The affidavit says Murphy had to file bankruptcy and needed the records due to his financial issues.
The affidavit claimed he “flipped out” and “built the pipe bomb as a warning.”
This may have been a fail for Charles C. Johnson, but it was a bigger loss for the Race Detective.
