Latest PC news flash - black child-killers absolutely OK
, October 23, 2004
In Hillsboro, Oregon, US, two-year-old Ryshawn Lamar Bynum died from the combined effects of brain injuries, a broken neck, broken ribs, and 70 whip marks on his legs, buttocks, back and chest.
His father and murderer Isaac Bynum came up with a novel defence: "Post-Traumatic Slavery Syndrome".
Isaac's lawyer Randall Vogt proclaimed that Isaac's killing of his child was part of this syndrome. According to defence witness Dr Joy DeGruy-Leary, from Portland State University's psychiatry department, "African Americans today are affected by past centuries of US slavery because the original slaves were never treated for the trauma of losing their homes; seeing relatives whipped, raped and killed; and being subjugated by whites.
"Because African Americans as a class never got a chance to heal, and today still face racism, oppression and societal inequality, they suffer from multi-generational trauma, says DeGruy-Leary, who is African American. Self-destructive, violent or aggressive behavior often results, she says." (The Oregonian
, Portland, May 30, 2004.)
The judge refused to accept this "post-traumatic slavery syndrome" defence in the preliminary hearing, but - hope springs eternal for the Politically Correct - has promised to consider it at the later trial.
